Group Version?

Is there a group version of this spell or similar? I've got the Talisman of Celerity for the 50% group haste, but was hoping for a group 60% spell. Since everyone wants the best haste they can get.
Thank you

Does this spell stack with SoV?

the spell will stack but haste will not. Only haste that will stack is Song, Spell, and perma. only one of each.

the spell will stack but haste will not. Only haste that will stack is Song, Spell, and perma. only one of each.

Only the songs which have Haste v2 or v3 will stack with spells. The other songs will count as standard buff haste, and will not stack the haste elements with haste from a spell.

Also, a common confusion is that just because an the spell sticks and the icon appears, doesn't mean that the haste element stacks even though the other stats from the buff might.

EDIT: I tried to help my fellow EQers by sharing what I figured out about the how haste from songs stacks. Within the week that I posted this, people have downrated the crap out of this.. This just goes to show how many folks don't realize what I'm saying is true. If the ignorant fools want to continue to believe the old wives tales that's fine, but don't go ahead and rate my effort to enlighten as Awful. That will just deny others who might benefit from the time I took to explain how song haste REALLY stacks with buff haste from spells. It would be nice if someone appreciated this Smiley: disappointed, or am I wasting my time posting on Allakh? LoL Smiley: banghead

If you don't believe me and still think all haste from songs stacks with haste from spells, then test it for yourself or check out this info from an article on the Bard website EQDiva before passing judgement.

an excerpt from this excellent article:
There are 4 versions of haste.
For every type of haste, only the highest percentage haste
is applied. The other stats granted by an ability are still in
effect, which is usually what skews people's perception of how
haste works.

v0 == item haste
v1 == icon haste (songs, spells, right-clicks)
v2 == ervaj line of songs type haste
v3 == vah shir / rizlona's / ranger AA type haste

v0 + v1 + v2 (equal or less then) 100 percent haste.

v3 may go over 100 percent haste. v3 doesn't only increase
the cap, it actually grants that percentage of haste as well

Potion is the same as Spell Haste v1. Look the spells / potions up, and Increase Attack Speed is v1 Spell Haste, Increase Haste v2 is bard 2ndary haste (marked v2 in the previous post), and Increase Haste v3 is Overhaste. Haste v0 is Item Haste and listed simply as Haste: +##% on the item display and is in effect as long as the item is worn and not outranked by another worn haste item.

ive heard a rumor about levels over 60 upping the haste cap just like stats. this would give (%5 per level) a level 75 toon a possibility of 175% total of v1 + v2 + v3

is any of that true?

How do the new Berserker haste effects stack?

They dont because the hundred hands effect is broken and does not give a haste currently.
