54 Ranger of Tunare
Now, I am having some real problems. Pre-epic I was using a tox axe in main with an ornate long sword of slaughter in the off hand, deadly combo. I was excited to get my swiftwind unitl I acctually equiped it. It did not really improve my DPS, leaving the tox axe in the main hand. I am guessing that this is a situational item, now, and I had SCHW for haste before my epic. It seems like I can kill mobs faster, solo, with the hand wraps and the tox/OLoS combo then I can with the tox/swifty combo. Have yet to try the OLoS/swifty combo because of the 30+ delay of the OLoS.
Oh well, I did 1/2 of it and am raiding PoH to get the SEoC so I will have both. I just wanted to let the rangers out there know this, so that if they have really nice weapons already, this probably wont be an upgrade for you. It is still a cool status symbol to have your epics. I am a lvl 52 woody ranger by the way, only took me a year to get this far, hehe.

As to other posts on better Ranger-usable weapons, I think the idea is to foster a sense of pride and completion of a long and arduous quest. Anyone is able to collect enough plat to buy a sweet bazaar sold item.
In many ways, quests of this nature bring together several aspects of why we play the game. A sense of adventure, shared danger with comrades-in-arms, and the thrill when you achieve your final goal. After all, we are "Ever-Questing".

Also, this is still fairly comparable to almost every weapon we could buy in the bazaar, but with the haste . . .
My Fantasy Novels
Haste SPELLS on the other-hand will effect bow haste so get a Chanter, Shaman, or Bard(if grouped with them) to give you haste.
You would probably be better off with a good 36% haste item and better weapons than these swords. If money is a big problem, then these swords might be the upgrade you're looking for.
Swiftwind is not the best weapon in the game, but for those us that will most likely never get to the really high tier stuff, it is GREAT! Haste, Attack, great stats and resists. While the damage/delay isn't as good as a Stained Axe, for example, the stained axe is most likely being used at 22-31% haste. Haste to 40% and this is comparable.
You say get 36% Haste item? Hmm, how about I buy one in the bazaar? Whoops, they are up for sale at 150K for plat-for-dollars cheaters to buy. Go kill something with one? Well, too high level for Naggy and Vox, guild not strong enough for some of the others. Yet, with help from friends we were able to get to Pegasus/Griffon Isle for this epic!
I have eyepatch of plunder as well (20% self spell haste) so I'm at 60% melee. With my Fleeting Quiver (60% WR, so 20% archery haste) I'm at 80% bow haste.
Please do your research before posting that worn haste has no effect on archery, like on a Ranger forum where this has been researched.
Let me also point out that if your spell and worn haste has already put you at your haste cap (like at 84% for me) archery is then added to it. So if I'm at 84% through worn and spell, I'm at 104% archery because of my fleeting quiver. It's true and documented by people much smarter than me!

It's a matter of pride to a lot of us.
By the way, Swiftwind is primary only now.
FYI it is still secondary...

Here's how I broke it up...
1-6 Getting the Shiny Tin Bowl
7-11 Getting the Hardened Mixture
12-16 Getting the Ancient Pattern
17-20 Getting the Platinum Speckled Powder
21-22 Getting the Enchanted Clay
23 Make the Runecrested Bowl
24-27 Getting the Ancient Longsword
28-34 Getting the Refined Mithril Blade
35-36 Getting Swiftwind
37-38 Getting Earthcaller
Obviously those can be broken down differently, but that seeemed pretty logical to me. Basically you have to do the whole epic minus the SEoC from Plane of Hate to get Swiftwind. Toward the end, the quests for the two items become intertwined, so that the only thing you can really skip to get just Swiftwind is the SEoC.
You give Faelin the Refined Ancient Sword to get Swiftwind. To spawn Faelin, you need to give Telin the sword first. You get that version of the sword from Usbak the Old. Usbak is spawned by giving Kinlo the hammer. That version of the hammer is from Mairee upon turning in the hammer off Jaeil and the SSoC from Plane of Air. The original version of the sword is from Telin in exchange for the Warmly Glowing Stone, which is from the stone off Venril Sathir's Remains and from the Runecrested Bowl. The bowl is from the Ancient Pattern, Platinum Speckled Powder, Enchanted Clay, and the Hardened Mixture. The Hardened Mixture is made in the Shiny Tin Bowl.
As you can see, you really have to do steps 1-36 to get your Swiftwind. The SSoC (and possibly other parts) could be MQed, but someone will have to do the first 36 steps to be able to get Swiftwind.

In other worfs, does he do his WHOLE transaction before mine? i.e. he gives swirling sphere, then hits give, then I give hammer, then hit trade? Or does he give and keep window open while I give my piece? Then he hit give and I hit give? this is where I am confused.
Yesterday as I was crossing the Bazaar I /ooced that I was looking for a MQ Swirling Sphere of colour./ Someone who turned out to be a 57 epic (Swifty & Earthcaller) RNG told me he got the sphere and agreed on MQing it for a Tigeraptor Cloak and Long Sword of Ethereal Energy :-)
We then went to Mairee Silentone in Erudin Palace, he gave the sphere, told me he'd done so, then i gave the hammer, and Bob's your uncle. 15 minutes later i'd my epic in hand :) I then went and grouped in PoV to try it out, and it rules !
Many thanks to Andaeinn for his helping me getting Siwfty :)
Earthcaller is a PITA as you need to get the SEOC from Hate which is an ultra rare drop.
So in order to get EC, you have to do all the steps of swifty. Then when you have swifty, EC only one drop from Hate away. It's getting that drop that will make you pull your hair out.

Turn in refined ancient sword to Telin Darkforest. This will spawn Faelin Bloodbriar. You then giver the refined ancient sword, and you get swiftwind.
Swifty is great - A few minor things I have noticed that i would like to talk of / share .
Swifty has per haste of 40% - please remember there is a haste cap and a dly cap . Haste cap is quite low below 50 but not so relevant as youll be 50 ish when you get this. DLY cap .. no weapon can have its effective delay dropped below 10 ( this has been stated regularly by verant and soe) bear it in mind when choosing primary - It will take you a lot longer to get earthcaller but with this pairing soloing is great - 40% haste 50% slow and 500 dot means mob is a lot less scarey.
Im not getting into the ratio / dly pri/sec thing as people have already stated this correctly and if peeps dont get it they should have bought a finger waggler on ebay not a ranger :).
Some primary weapons to consider
Lupine dagger - Club of ice ocean - Long sword of ethereal energy - Edge of the nightwalker (<< my personal choice) - Snowchipper - all have advantages - good ratio , some proc , some have good stats , none are too slow . Quite a few are at the cheaper end of the market ( on a mature server so wont get into prices)
All in all swifty rules .... i love it :) the lightning on the blade ... the effort to get it all worth it and I am trying for earthcaller too - oh and soloing rangers ... eyepatch of plunder should get you to your haste limit as it is a spell :)

It wasnt from a parser it was something to do with the actual game mechanics in that it ignored anything less then 10 dly and made it 10 due to a codding restriction I think
If i happen to be able to find the post itself, i'll put a link here.

Both my guild-leader and I were apprehensive to the NPC. Obviously, neither of us wanted to find out whether this mattered. So, my guild-leader put the Sphere into a trade window with the NPC, waited while I finished casting SupCamo on him, and then hit 'give'. Then I hit 'sneak', came up from behind, handed her my contibution and got my reward.
Again, whether we needed to do this is uncertain to me, but it seemed the safest bet.
Best of luck on your questing ... I hope this helps :)
