LOL... it's a triggered effect and you can cast on others. And it's mana-free. Not sure I'e ever seen a chanter cast this on herself.

Not to mentionthat since it is mana free it is also easier to time when you need to cast on another player by casting it on yourself and then recasting when itstarts to drop.

Actually, because it's a mana free effect, most enchanters keep this spell up on themselves. It's not just a haste's also an agi and stamina (yellow bar) regen buff as well. More agi = more ac, and since most casters have less than 100sta, in underwater zones such as Siren's Grotto, or Kedge Keep, the sta regen is nice. It's mana free, so there's no real reason not to cast it on yourself...especially since it's beneficial.

To keep up with the times, There is no Stamina bar anymore. So, it's still really only just haste and Agi. /shrug

Hey all I'm just cruisin' around checking out all the epics. What does speed of the Shissar do? My best guess is a haste effect, but I have no idea. Thanks.

hey i just headed over here after looking at this item on and their discription of this proc is a 66%haste and a plus 40 to agility and plus 12 ac, i don't know if the ac boost is a result of the agility boost or not, but i still like the numbers

Second Best Epic
# Aug 25 2001 at 12:09 AM Rating: Default
The only better epic than this is the Cleric epic, as far as usefulness goes. Meanwhile, the Malevolence was just given out in the big GM event, which is equippable by WAR SK SHM CLR NEC who worship Inny. It's better than the Shaman and Necro epics! Honest to god! Check it out sometime.

Anyway, if you find a Monk who absolutely does NOT want Speed of the Shissar, he's suffering from delusions, or stupidity, or both.

I'd say this is the 3rd best epic. Cleric's is obviously the best, but I think bard's is the 2nd best because not only does it porc a 55% haste +stats buff, but also makes all of the bards songs better.
RE: Second Best Epic
# Jun 10 2002 at 3:30 AM Rating: Decent
in single group conditions youre probably right because if the enchanter has visions of grandeur, Augmntation or some other high level haste spell the haste that is achieved is almost if not the same amount as the haste increase on the epic. But in raid situations a bard is mainly only really used for AE mana song and AE resist while only their specific group is affected by the haste and whatever other effects the bard epic's proc has. Enchanter manaless haste on raids is a godsend for mages too who will have to produce a lot less rods to keep the enchanter at a high mana %. So groups = bards, raids = enchanters probably a bit better. Just IMO though so obviously you can have a different opinion. Plus im an enc myself sp a bit biased :D

is this really usable in both hands?
# May 03 2001 at 12:49 AM Rating: Default
if so I can come up with some intresting combos hehe. but I thought only duel weilding classes could equip a weapon in the offhand?

I'm like 2 mobs away from getting mine so I'm starting to do a bit of research as to how its going to affect my equip layout )
RE: is this really usable in both hands?
# Jul 25 2001 at 7:50 PM Rating: Decent
with every pure caster you can put an item in each hand, as long as ONLY one of them is a weapon. So you cant have two weps in hands, but you can either have a wep and another item(ex: stein of mogguk) or two items(ex:harvesterr and stein of mogguk). Hope this helps
RE: is this really usable in both hands?
# Dec 09 2002 at 9:09 AM Rating: Decent
This is not true. If you are a pure caster you can only hold your weapon in your primary slot. I tried to hold my Sacrificial Dagger (which can be held in the primary or secondary slot) in my secondary slot after I put my Najena Book in my primary slot, since this is the only place you can have the Najena Book. It would not let me equip my Dagger! I read up on it and pure casters can only hold their weapon if it is in the primary slot! Just thought I would let you know.
