evidently this haste on this belt goes up as you gain levels. my pally got it and it almost doubles my speed at level 51. i think 16% is the lowest you get. i would hazzard a guess of 50% at level 51.

I purchased one of these at level 40 from a generous level 60 cleric (not no-drop on FV server). I've been toying around with taking it on and off. However, I honestly cannot notice any speed difference whether it is on or off. Given that this is from the Plane of Air, does this worn-haste effect not work until level 46?

The haste takes effect at any level. This belt in particular gives you 16% Haste, so you're going to swing 16% more than normal. Depending on the delay of your weapon, you might not notice a significant difference but believe me there IS. Keep it on. :)
Belt and Haste

This belt is nice, i would wear it over my FBSS. 8ac, 5str, 5wis, 5mr and 16% v 21% i would take the ac, stats, and haste. An easier way to figure out haste is just take the haste on an item and put 1. in front of it then divide it by weapons delay. So, on the Sword of the Morning for example it would be 27/1.21= 23 delay. Just fyi the delay would be the same with fbss or belt of virtue.. but you get the ac and stats with virtue. On higher delay weapons the fbss haste would cut a few more delay off a weapon then BoV. Also, here is a list of haste percents which is pretty accurate

I got one of these tonight, the haste is the same as fbss, but the stats just make this thing flat out own. gave my old fbss to a guildy for 1k. im not plat hungry.

Actually they lowered FBSS speed to 16, 17%. So this has same speed as FBSS now. And the way to figure out the dly on yer weap using speed is as follows...100% dly would lower dly 1/2 of weapon dly. 200% cuts it in 1/2 of 100% speed, or 1/4 of unspeeded melee, and so on and so forth. Soo...16.666% is 1/6 of 100 so this will lower dly 1/12 of weapons original dly, at least this is what i've been told. I really wish i could get this haste item, 8ac, 5str 5wis and 5magic (can't go wrong with these stats), signed up for a few PoA raids to try and get one

Actualy all the class specific haste belts that are droppped in PoS are random off of any mob. Had a monk belt drop on the first Island while we were getting key pieces, lucky monk :p
As for whether or not FBSS is better for Paladin or this belt? AC is king numero uno, and 2 it has stat bonuses as well as a decent haste effect. Paladins should not be main tanks in most cases at the level neded to get these, so why worry about the haste percentage? If it makes me kill faster and I don't have to hang out in L Guk so much the better. Next best thing for Paladins only is the PoS quest belt.
If ya got an RBB or CoF or some other such uber haste item, well good on ya and have fun. The rest of us would realy like to get one of these so stay outta the randoms plz thx.

Update: Got one after hanging out in PoS farming the Spiroc Lord for some warrior friends of mine. Very nice item indead. :p

Err...that AC god stuff starts to wear thin at 50+ levels I am finding. Resist...Resist become VERY important. To paraphrase a quote I found somewhere on this site: Who cares if your AC is 1041 if your charmed **** is killing the chanter.

Speed is nice also. Extremely important to take down MOBs asap. Yes, that is what nukers are for you say....and you are correct. Sometimes it takes a few secs to launch those babies..and fast, hard-hitting melee damage is welcomed.

All the class specific haste belts are random drops, from anything on the second level and above, becoming more common as you get higher. On the first level, however, the Thunder Spirit Princess can drop them rarely. I believe that the haste on these belts is actually less than an FBSS...

I've been told my most players that i've talked to that this belt's haste is the same as fbss...21%
% Haste...
# Feb 04 2001 at 12:37 PM Rating: Default
Gotta know, what is the percent HAste on this ****?

> or < FBSS ?
RE: % Haste...

16% haste...not as good as fbss, but this has ac, str, wis, and sv magic....having an enchanter in almost EVERY group Im in now, I could care less about the 5% less haste on this, I love it, great stats, untill I get a Girdle of Faith (kicks eye of veeshan), just gotta get to the last island in air =) Good luck....
16% dmg inc. or 13.8% delay reduct.
# Mar 10 2001 at 12:56 AM Rating: Decent
The haste on this belt is 16% increse in damage or a 13.8% reduction in delay. (they equal the same thing) FBSS is a 21% increase in damage for comparison. If you want to convert it take 1.21 and divide 1 by that number to get the new delay multiplier. FBSS has a 17.4% reduction in delay for example.
