Do you think a level 55 Mage and a level 44 Ranger could take Swirlspine Guardian?

Flowing Black Silk Sash is 21% as per - item number 1365 if you want to check.

The fbss you are talking about at 17% haste - where does it drop, and how much does it cost? 5k? hehe

The only reason I could see paying this much for this belt, is because of where it loots. Other than that - it's newb twink gear.

This belt is 16% haste, fbss 21% and dragonborn sash 24%. FRSS was dropped off teen lvl mob for a very few days and is only 6% haste. It is not worth more then 800pp. EVERYONE knows CoF is 36% haste, just ask any zone and half a dozen people will tell you 36% not 40. People like ShadesongLeaderfife and ChitosKitfo are the ones that get everyone confused posting false information. They not only post incorrect info, but blame people who post the real information of being wrong. The 5% haste difference between this and a FBSS is very hard to notice as is between a Dragonborn sash and FBSS. This thing is more rare then FBSS becuase it is camped so little. I don't see many being sold, and not many people wanting to buy them either. I did see one for sale a few days ago for 3k. Basically comes down to if you want 4ac or 5% haste. Here is a link with almost all haste items which match up with the amount of haste i posted.

#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 26 2002 at 6:48 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I read the first few lines of your message and stopped, knowing why your obviously confused. Swirlspine belt is 16% haste. FBSS is 18% and Dragonborn is 24% people aren't full of BS, but you need to get your facts in order. Flowing RED silk sash is rumored to be 21% but it's not certain yet.
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 11 2002 at 8:25 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ok, the first guy with this post is BS, but yer BS is more, FRSS 16%, SS belt 16-18% FBSS 21%, SC handwraps 22%, DB sash 26% haste, SBoC 30% haste, sib zerker cloak 35% haste, CoCW 37% hatse, CoF 40% haste, and so on and so forth..this is what i get for staying in the market line of xegony for 2 months

SBoC is 24-26% haste, its pewpy :)
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 09 2002 at 1:34 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) EGH the FRSS was only 4% get off its nuts.
RE: Haste
# Apr 01 2002 at 5:44 AM Rating: Default

This will give you all the info you need for haste items. Unfortunately your listings are somewhat off. And to be honest I thought the issue of FBSS haste was cleared up long ago but just to make sure you got it... FBSS IS 21% HASTE...21%.

# Mar 27 2002 at 5:20 AM Rating: Default
Everything I have read on FBSS from many different sources list the fbss as 21 % . When did it go to 18%.

i traded a Velium Swiftblade for a bunch of things and this was one of them. how mcuh is this gonig for on Karana cause a bunch of people are telling me different prices
#REDACTED, Posted: Jan 27 2002 at 5:55 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ok fbss has 21% haste thats it period. fbss goes for 3k on sol ro. SOL RO OWNZ ALL j00Z SERVERS!
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 01 2002 at 7:11 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Har Har that right..FBSS is 17% thats it period!
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 28 2002 at 9:57 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Garudin with 161 posts that means you have spent a decent amount of time on alla's. Just to clear this up FBSS 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21 21. Getting the picture???? I realize you may not be able to count to 21 because of the amount of toes and fingers you have. Well then again maybe all the inbreeding has granted you an extra one, who knows. But in any case if your smart enough to post theres a slight chance you have the intell to run a parser. SIGH. If you dont know what your talking about please do not post meaningless dribble. Check out for any info needed on haste.

# May 17 2002 at 12:34 AM Rating: Default
Hey , I am able to count to 21( ok, so I got arrested doing that but WTH ) my pally has this and I am very happy with it , I like the extra ac as a tank , My monk has an fbss and I have tried both , its very difficult to tell much of a difference over a long period of time , I'm just happy I when I don't die.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jan 29 2002 at 1:41 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) See how long you can last on vallon or rallos ......bluebie........

Whyseven, you got your hastes confused the SS is 16% and the fbss is 21%, see for a semi definitive list of haste items
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 03 2001 at 3:18 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Fbss = 17% 7k
#REDACTED, Posted: Jan 16 2002 at 4:11 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i have to agree with whyseven..because...
haste %
# Nov 02 2001 at 12:53 AM Rating: Default
I had the pleasure of winning one of these babies in our group lotto the other night, or so I thought. Everyone had told me that the haste was equivalent to FBSS with a bonus 4 ac, well they could not have been more wrong. It does have the 4 ac but it is noticably slower. I wield an Oggok Cleaver (44 damage and 60 delay) so I can easily count the ticks between swings, as you can imagine. The FBSS is noticably faster so you can imagine my disapointment but o'well I'll just sell it or twink it to my monk and you can bet I won't mention the fact that the haste percentage is consderably slower unless I am asked 8)
#REDACTED, Posted: Jan 17 2002 at 9:07 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Lol dude you couldnt be more wrong! everybody wants FBSS because...its the CHEAPST!
# Oct 29 2001 at 11:41 PM Rating: Good
I thought Swirlspine belt only had 16% haste...
# Sep 16 2001 at 12:52 PM Rating: Decent
This is basically equal to the Sash of Dragonborn if you ask me.

Sash of Dragonborn: 2 ac 24% haste
Swirlspine Belt: 4 ac 21% haste

This is Better than a FBSS
# Sep 04 2001 at 5:31 AM Rating: Decent
I'd take this over a FBSS any day. I've tested both the FBSS and Swirlspine they are the same. You can't tell the difference. This Belt goes for at least the same amount as a FBSS. Anything more than 8k is too much though. I don't know why people give this belt such a bad name, its decent.
# Aug 14 2001 at 9:37 PM Rating: Default
These have 4 ac and same haste as FBSS. I paid 11k for mine and I love it. I highly recommend this over the FBSS if possible on your budget.
RE: Wow!
# Jan 22 2002 at 10:22 PM Rating: Decent
Well that your server..ide say he paid the right ammount!
RE: Wow!
# Aug 23 2001 at 8:20 PM Rating: Default
Ouch, you paid too much. On Lanys Tvyl these go for 5000pp max, and FBSS goes for 7000pp max. You should have paid less than a FBSS since this DOES have lower haste.
RE: Wow!
# Oct 10 2002 at 8:31 AM Rating: Default
Oh, this is gonna **** EVERYONE OFF, but I think a vendor made a HUGE mistake in the Bazaar last night. I picked this up for only 200 plat! All the sites I've seen said 16% haste, but WTF, 200 plat?! I bet the poor vendor fat fingered it and left off a zero. hehe, Verant says all sales are final! LOL

RE: Wow!
# Oct 30 2002 at 8:25 PM Rating: Decent
LOL you really over paided for it..on my server (Zebuxoruk) the FBSS only goes for about 2500 plat and the swirlspine belt goes for about
1100 - 1300 plat!
Another one
# Aug 04 2001 at 3:01 PM Rating: Decent
My guild is currently raiding Kedge as I type this, and one swirlspine has already dropped. They are still melee classes, and they do still drop, at least on Xev. We will be camping here for Phinny and the rest, so we can prolly anticipate a couple more.
Better then fbss.
# Jul 12 2001 at 4:34 AM Rating: Decent
Haste is the same as fbss.

i dont know if this has always been the case. but as of now it is by no means noticable difference, if there is one, it is only one or 2 percent.

this owns fbss. having no ac in belt slot is painful. so instead of saying some haste is better then no haste, you should be saying some ac is better then no ac!
RE: Better then fbss.
# Dec 02 2001 at 5:08 AM Rating: Excellent
Some ac is not better than no ac when it comes at the price of 1 stone. Well if your a monk that is....
Got one tonight
# May 27 2001 at 1:16 AM Rating: Default
They still drop cause we got one tonight on 7th.

Nice item. Beats that farkin camp in LGUK as the ac buff that is included. That and a fairly underutilized zone.

Swirlspine Haste Percentage versus FBSS!
# May 16 2001 at 7:14 PM Rating: Default
Hello All,

I have personally tested this item 3 times versus the FBSS, It has beaten or tied the fbss is speed all of the times within the last few months. I personally don't know if they changed the item, because I never had it before the supposed patch, but if you are on Bertox right now and have a FBSS I will let you test it versus this item! If you haven't used it recently, you would probably not know that it is just as fast as the FBSS, as for the sash of the dragonborn I have that as well, and it is MUCH faster then both the FBSS and the Swirlspine Belt. I am on bertoxullous and my Characters names are Ahman, and Shartin if you are interested in seeing either of these in action! THanks

I saw one of these for 17k on the Rodcet Knife Server
RE: Price
# Jun 21 2001 at 2:02 PM Rating: Decent

It's June of 2001 now and I saw two of these for sale this week on Rodcet Nife.

One for 12k (crazy, FBSS for 8k is better) and one for 5k.

does this still drop?
# Apr 30 2001 at 2:05 AM Rating: Default
I have been looking for one of these for a couple of days to possibly buy...i received a tell from someone that this does not drop this true?
Still Drops
# May 18 2001 at 10:27 AM Rating: Default

Yes this still drops because my 51 bard friend, Narkisos, sent me a tell to tell me that he won it. So yes it still drops in KK.
