Ok, i read all the posts and didn't know what to beleive. Everyone claims "TESTED IT and such and such is the case".

So I bought one of these now to give it a once over. I'm thinking, with the shonobi ring, Yellow HP = 4% haste. Its easy to solo for a while with yellow HP, and just never rest back to full each time lol.

I was guessing I had to have my HP just a step down from that to activate this earring. I was hoping TP wasn't a factor. After having tested it myself, this is my personal findings and find this earring to be 97.4% useless.

Any TP ... it appeared to have zero effect.

20% haste was noticable on the melee combat speed
20% haste dropped Ni Counter from 42 (with my current gear) to 31ish
20% haste was ONLY active, when my HP was not yellow, not ORANGE, but "dead" red. So, basically this ring encourages life on the edge. It wont help you during crunch time, because if your waiting on a recast timer ... getting haste after the spell has been casted doesn't help. So if it says 30 seconds left, you still have 30 seconds left even in red HP. But when you cast Ichi or Ni while in the red, you will get the laten boost and it will set your recast timers super low (which is nice )

I dont recommend this earring, if you keep it you'll have a thirst for low HP and loss of EXP when it catchs you naked after a 4hit attack or AoE.


Taru HP 970/970 (2% head, 3% feet 0% from shinobi ring)
700/970 (yellow) (2% head, 3% feet, 4% from shinobi ring)
530/970 (orange) scary HP, (2% head, 3% feet, 4% from shinobi ring)
350/970 (orange) scary HP, (2% head, 3% feet, 4% from shinobi ring)
212/970 (red ;;) Panic Mode, (2% head, 3% feet, 4% ring, 20%!!! earring)
0/970 Dead Taru.

Now everyone is talking about how fast your ni recasts, but who cares? How fast did ya hit ****? :P 20% + whatever else you've got should be pumping out a crazy attack rate

you crasy lmao. If that earring which gives 20% haste was triggered by this cheap ring then the earring would be worth like 100million and up.

I think the latent activates when your hp is orange-red and your tp is under 100%

This sketchy earring was dropping in price, so I decided to bite. Now I know why... You *do* have to be in red HP with <100% TP for the latent effect to kick in. This makes its applications very limited for delicate ninjas, even moreso than the yellow hp triggered Shinobi Ring. Although, I must say it's fun to run around on the brink of death and make people go:

O.O Look at that crazy *******!

HP had to be in the red before i saw the latent kick in. Wearing no other haste gear, ni dropped down to 36 sec recast and ichi to 24 sec.

Having tested this information I can find nothing to support it. Casting time of both Ichi and Ni was not quicked, nor has the recast time been lowered under the following conditions:

yellow HP and under 100% TP

This item is junk in my eyes as it stands at the moment.

+% Haste means the recast timer of the spell is less, not the cast time.

Fast Cast reduces the cast time. +% Haste reduces the recast timer.

For example: I use the +4% haste on the Ranperre Harness and cast Stoneskin.

With Harness, after stoneskin is cast, the recast timer shows 28 and counting down from there.

Without Harness, after stoneskin is cast, the recast timer shows 30 and counting down from there.

Same thing with the spell Haste. It does not reduce the cast time (that bar the gets filled when casting a spell), but instead, it shortens the recast timer.

Fast Cast and Haste are exactly the same with regard to spellcasting. They both cut down both the cast time and the recast time.

I'm pretty sure this is one of the "low HP" latent effects. Look at what it gives you, +20% Haste? If there was anyway to trigger that all the time, Ninja would be unstoppable. So I think it's more of a 'low HP, panic!' thing

Hey man, I spent 31 lvs as a whm/war before switching to a drk/war. I never had any problems with mp, and i could contribute to melee better than most melee jobs (with a hammer anyway). As long as I had a good tank then there are no problems (but then again, I always have good tanks, inferior players get the boot from my parties.)

Just a Theory: maybe the latent effect is triggered by equiping the BCNM50 ring by the same name?
