Level 01 - 30: 50%
Level 31 - 50: 74%
Level 51 - 55: 84%
Level 55 - 59: 94%
Level 60 - 65: 100%
So yes, most people can hit the haste cap with just a 30+% haste item and an Enchanter. However, you don't always have an Enchanter or Shaman available. The combination of the Slow/DoT (Best BL slow before level 65 is 50%, no DoT with it) plus 40% haste on offhand and an Eyepatch of Plunder or BL Alacrity (once high enough), it makes a difference.
Mostly, these were made to be in line with other epics. They almost exactly mirror the Ranger epic swords, only our DoT does less damage and the slow is less. That there are better weapons now, of course! It's the prestige of wearing them. Plus, I can see how they would be great for the soloing BL.
My Fantasy Novels
Remember, bst's are only a lt tank with some melee capabilities. Our true power lies in our warders, they can far outdamage us over the course of a fight. Most bst's forget that. Personally since lvl 30 I have only died 4 times to my present lvl, and that includes living thru 2 naggy and vox raids. Play smart and youll live every time.
Once you get lvl 62 your Pet lvls out and thats about as far as he gets damage wise which is about 60-70DPS depending on Mob and wether Pet is on his backside the whole fight...
All you can do then to increase your pets DPS is find your freindly neighborhood 62+ Mage to get a couple Fist Of Xiblat (10/20 with 150DD weapons X2) then a Girdle and Muzzle for an extra 500HPs and 10Dex plus 11% extra haste....With your Pets S O Storms proc that 3 procs.....Its hard to judge "exactly" what your Pet is doing DPS wise at this point but an educated guess would be an extra 10-15DPS so probably 70-90DPS more or less.
At lvl 65 with just a Wanning Light Katar and offhand Epic, Pet N I do approx 140DPS, once again depending on Mob and wether or not we can be on its back as opposed to in front getting all the dodges/reposte/blocks etc and also wether Mob is highly Cold resistant....
BUT, thats fairly low budget weapons really, AND, i still dont have several of my needed AAs to up my damage output......
So really at higher lvls, WITH good weapons, AND the proper AAs i can outdamage my Pet by almost double.
The Epic is good, though mostly for the Offhand 40% Haste til you get better....
The Wanning light Katar is better than the Primary Epic, anything better is going to be No Drop...
"Remember, bst's are only a lt tank with some melee capabilities"
Well at lower lvls yes thats about true....Im not quite there yet, im lvl 65 BUT still need more AAs and a set of Dumuls and i should be able to tank damn near as well as your "average" lvl 65 Warrior...
We dont have nor will we ever have the Mitigation of the Plate classes, BUT, with Combat Agility 3, Physical Enhancement, Lightning Reflexes 5, and my AGI at over 300, which i would be if i had a set of Dumuls, i should AVOID a large amount of damage altogether, and in the higher plains where most Mobs are hitting for 700+, every hit completely AVOIDED is 700+ less damage taken, that adds up fast.
I have a friend, a lvl 65 Beast that has most of his Dumuls and killer weapons, and raid buffed he is just under 8K HPs and all stats over 300+ with ATK of over 2000..
Im sure he is doing over 200DPS also....
The Beastlord is damn hard to beat and very under rated.
We can buff almost as well as a Shaman, and easily in the top 3 classes for DPS, have a 65% slow, can give a decent +9mana/HP buff, Raise anyones ATK by 250+ and ALL resist by 65-100...
Have a Pet that properly raid buffed will have around 7K HPs and does anywhere from 60-90DPS and can Tank in a Pinch, and we have the possibility of getting close to 8K HPs, Max stats, 100% Haste, well over 2000ATK all SELF buffed. and "can" be a decent ST and even a MT if need be...
Im nowhere near his stats or HPs, raid buffed right now, im lucky to clear 5400HPs, I am maxed at 280+ on ALL stats though, Str/Sta/Agi/Dex...
only have CA3 so far, need LR5, PE, etc...But yet i can still tank in Tier2 where Mobs are regularly hitting for 500+ and i have a long way to go in AAs, so will get quite a bit better....
So dont think your a one trick pony....
he said with pet dummy,a ranger wouldent stand a chance agence a beasty pet let alone a beastlord & pet pure melee.

The stats may be similar (I'd have to double check those). The haste is pretty much the same. However, the BST epic slows more than the ranger epic, at a cost of some damage in the DoT. BST = 55 percent slow 450 DoT Ranger = 45 percent slow 500 DoT
Ranger offhand: 40% haste, +30atk
BST offhand: 40% haste, +30atk
Offhand effect is the exact same... just a different name
Ranger mainhand: procs 40-50% slow (40% at 50, 50% at 60, +1% each level) and 500 DoT for 2.5 minutes.
BST mainhand: procs 55% slow and 460 DoT for 2 minutes.
I feel sorry for the beastlords out there. This proc is gonna draw you *TONS* of aggro it ain't even funny. Rangers already go through it. I can't believe that Verant was this uncreative in making a new epic. You did so well in being creative with Luclin, giving us tons of new challenges, now you go and rip off the ranger epic as the new beastlord epic? Gimme a break...
In the BL epic, you obviously can't split them into two quests since they are acquired at the same time, but the BL epic is so easy that it doesn't matter. Use the primary for soloing and certain group situations (the new melee patch might have raised warrior taunt enough), and just keep the secondary out all the time.

Dont flmae me if Im wrong, but I dont think I am.
After you get past 75 agi (which almost every race/class combo automaticaly starts with save a few erud and ogre combos), agi adds something like 1 AC for every 3 agi.
