editted - ah sorry DMG BONUS depends on the individual player using/looking at it.

on a different note, this is one of the cheapest 36% hastes you can get! (IF you can spare the offhand and would rather not sacrifice a gear slot for an item with haste but little stats)

This is used by chanters for charm soloing a lot. I sell these very quickly when I get one, usually to a chanter. They can easily make up the 3-4K in a single session with a hasted pet and this weapon.

I just want to say That You guys ramble on to much. One easy thing to say in post. You like or not. Plus answer questions so other people don't have to ask. What does this sword drop off? Is it a named? What spawns named? If nothing spawns named then what is named's spawn time. This all I ask after these questions are answered then feel free to ratio/damage and what goes good with what all you want. Thank you. Sorry hate ranting but had to on this post :)
Best Purpose
# Oct 31 2003 at 2:02 AM Rating: Decent
I found that the best use of this weapon is for a ranger. A ranger can use this while bow kiting to give him 36% haste. This weapon is great to use until a ranger gets his epic (Swiftwind 40% haste)
Best Pair
# Aug 12 2003 at 6:30 AM Rating: Good
I just want to paraphrase what I've just read throughout this page as to which weapon to pair this weapon with - just to be sure I'm making the correct conclusions. Feel free to make any constructive comments.

One post states that Frostbringer (12 / 22) makes great pair, another states that Exquisite Velium Warsword (12 / 21) does, and the extensive list posted near the bottom shows damage output per minute with a number of different weapons; Guard Captain's Mallet (11 / 20) and Toxiferious Axe (10 / 17) were near the top for certain level's listings.

Conclusion 1 - Excluding Tox Axe all weapons have a damage of 11 or 12 and a delay between 20-22. It would seem to follow that any weapon with numbers that match these (i.e. Razor-edged Shan'tok or Serrated Cutlass of Hatred) would also perform as well.

Conclusion 2 - The ratio of weapons seems to matter greatly - but delay certainly becomes an issue. All the ratios for Frostbringer, GCM, EVW and the Tox axe are 1.7 - 1.9. Wurmy is a bit lower (1.6) but the delay is disgusting. Long Sword of Ethereal Energy has a ratio of 1.812, but the damage output isn't as great, again assumably due to the higher delay.

I'd love to see the results of damage output done again with some different weapons. For instance, if someone with Dex = 160ish, Str = 170ish used Snowchipper / Spiked Velium Mallet, Swiftblade of Zek, Blackened Acrylia Blade, or Fleshgrinder (was trying to think of weaps without procs, but struggled to come up with some).

Great Rogue Weapon
# Jun 22 2003 at 12:17 AM Rating: Decent
For a Rogue who's damage mostly comes from Backstab, this is a great weapon for the off-hand. With this 36% haste in secondary and a 13 +2dis = 15 damage, in most circumstances, primary weapon, I backstab harder and faster than any other rogue I have seen at my level, only 34 atm though :)

For the fashion-minded, this is a spiffy weapon, looks like a katana or wakasashi
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 04 2003 at 11:18 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Haste doesn't effect ratio, why do u think uper lvl ppl arent running around with Wurmys in main hand with a Swiftblade in off? /shrugg i am not gonna go into detail but haste effects overall dmg, if u deal 100dps then with 20% haste u deal 120, simple enuff, weapon ratios do not lower from this...

Absolutely affects EFFECTIVE ratio!

This weapon would always be 5/18 (rounded) because haste would make it 24/1.36 = 17.6 delay. That's why you do more damage: you swing more often.

On to this weapon: It stinks for melee. Great for bow kiting, etc., but there are much better weapons that paired with a 22% haste item like SCHW will give you MUCH more melee damage.

Do SCHW actually stack with the velium swiftblade?
# Mar 27 2003 at 5:06 PM Rating: Default
no item hastes stack.
# May 29 2003 at 12:13 AM Rating: Decent
Not completely accurate...

No (Worn) item hastes will stack...

However, you can have one (Worn) and one (Combat)
# Nov 10 2003 at 2:21 PM Rating: Decent
195 posts
Again, one worn, one spell OR one song, one overhaste song. That's it. Period. If an item says Haste (Combat), then the combat one is a spell, which will not take effect most likely if you already have Enchanter or Shaman haste that exceeds it (likely). Items with triggered (by right click or randomly during combat) haste are great for soloing, but pointless for groups with enchanters.

Edit: Oh yeah, Guardian of the Forest AA stacks AND will take you over your haste cap.

forgot to mention this with bows.. i have a shissar bow, 20/35, this makes it 20/23... thats a nice bow...
# Mar 02 2003 at 12:13 AM Rating: Default
this with LSoEE makes a 16/18.56 and then the +5 magic damage so a 21/19, wow.... with lammy makes 9/12, with centi LS makes a 14/17, and witha wurmy maks 25/29... as you can see, this item is pretty sweet.. put it up with the LSoEE and it is incredible... lammy with hits of about 80+ depending on level and str... as you can see, this item is awsome (these calculations are with 36% haste. all websites i have found say it is 36)
# Feb 03 2003 at 2:22 PM Rating: Excellent
The haste value of this weapon is 36% (CoF haste) which makes it roughly a 5/17 or 5/18 weapon. If you have haste available in another slot, I'd suggest dumping this and pick up a better damaging weapon.
RE: Haste
# Feb 08 2003 at 12:55 AM Rating: Default
...but at lower levels, this is much easier to acquire than SCHW which still go for as much as 5k on most servers.

Just put a very nice weapon in your primary, this in secondary, and you are good to go for many seasons. At least until you have the wherewithall to get hold of a CoF.
# Jan 25 2003 at 9:13 PM Rating: Decent
I've read every post there is on this item, and I notice one thing: either you love it or hate it.

I personally bought this for 1500pp for my warrior, after I tried trading 4k worth of stuff for SCHW. I was shocked to find that it was 36% (or 40%) haste for such a cheap item. I hesitated to buy it at first because of the stats, but now I don't regret it.

It really depends on your style of play if you use it or not. I'll most likely keep this for a long time. You have to admit, not many people will ever see a haste item this high without getting lucky on a CoF roll. It definitely (for me) makes up for the weakness of the weapon, especially in the secondary range.

This is probably the *most* under-rated haste item in the game. Test it out, you can get it fairly cheap these days.

(Who knows, if it becomes popular, the price may skyrocket!)
Oh ya...
# Jan 24 2003 at 4:47 PM Rating: Default
Oh, and this weapon alone without any other hastes would have a ratio of 3.4, which is much worse than Jade Mace at 2.0(lower is better).
Damage/Delay Ratio
# Jan 24 2003 at 4:33 PM Rating: Default
The damage/delay ratio on this weapon is 5/17 at 40% haste. So with Bard and/or chanter haste you could get to about 150% haste total with the highest lvl hastes for those two particular classes. Making this 5/9(1.8) or 5/10(2.0) roughly. Better than a Jade Mace at 9/18(2.0) or just roughly just as good, but a lot faster, so that lack of damage makes this an uber taunter and allows more ticks for secondary hand to hit as well. IMO this is well worth the cash you pay for it, on Xev they go for 2k, just a little bit higher than what Jade Mace goes for these days, sometimes the same price. But definately nice at any lvl. Much better than I thought before I calculated the dmg/dly ratio.

but you didnt put the bard and chanty haste on the jade mace so how are you comparing the two?

I'm fairly certain it's 40% haste - it makes taunting a lot easier - i use it in off hand with Tae Ew Hunting Blade in Primary :)

It's 36 percent.

and while you're edumicating us tell us how "duel" wield works? do you pick up a person in a duel and use them as your weapon?

Ok, once and for all: Does this stack with spells like Alacrity or not?

You can have 1 ench haste spell, 1 bard haste song, and 1 item all stacking at once. The fastest haste item is the percent used.
