As far as i can tell the Fast Cast is enhanced on the +1 version. Was testing this /whm using teleports with another rdm/whm with NQ version. i was casting about 10% faster than she was. then the other rdm put on thier relic body+NQ hat and we both casted almost exactly the same. i have the percentages somewhere ill update this post with them soon. Did the test with no gear accept the hats (Funny watching an elvaan and mithra in just af hat teleporting over an over :D). adding light staves dropped the cast time even lower. i think the lowest cast i got was 39% on lightsday. gonna test it even more but for now im almost posotive it enhances Fast Cast more than the NQ version. It is probly only noticable in your longer casting spells, but ive noticed that almost all my spells cast right around 50% varying with the day.

btw to all those that say that "Enhances 'ability'" on all the AF+1 doesnt add extra bonus you are wrong. The Temple Gloves +1 DO enhance boost more than NQ and the Ninja Chainmail +1 DOES enhance duelwield even more. I'm still doing my tests on the Warlock's Chapeau +1 and it's looking like it does enhance Fast Cast even more. Until you have the items yourself and actually get to test them its pretty stupid to post whether or not something does or does not do something.

Has anyone parsed the timing difference between NQ and HQ? Cause on NIN AF+1 Body, the +1 version is ''slightly'' faster according to a parse, thats why i am wondering if its worth upgrading...

Everyone has their own preferences, but I know that even if I do get Duelist's Chapaeu or the +1 version, I'd prefer my AF hat or this for soloing purposes. Getting shadows up and keeping them up as quickly as possible will save me a lot more MP than auto-refresh ever will. I'd love a duelist's hat for the enfeebling skill and the auto-refresh (during resting/downtime), but for soloing this piece stomps it by a mile.
Like I said though, we all have our own way of doing things.

Wow look at this genius. Im guessing you only keep one equipment set? MACRO IN YOUR AF HAT FOR UTSUSEMI, USE DUELIST WHILE YOUR SHADOWS EXHAUST. God dammit. Im sick of people running around with one equipment set thinking SHOULD I USE THIS OR THAT? USE BOTH. I have my errant set, my defensive set, my INT set, my MND set and my attack set. I swap them in and out for there own purposes. INT for nukes along with staves (yes I bring staves too), MND and staves for enfeebles and stoneskin, etc. Point is DONT TIE YOURSELF DOWN TO 16 PIECES OF EQUIPMENT!

What a jacka$$. Obviously at the time I wrote that I was unaware we can macro in fastcast gear prior to spell start and swap it out after completion without losing the bonus to recast timers. Your guess that I don't use any equip swaps at all was pretty moronic, and not providing the information that I was missing in a helpful way to everyone reading this was just plain assinine.

As for actually useful info, although this is not known to have a higher fastcast boost than the NQ version, it does have the best combination of int + skill for your nukes in this slot. That white border is pretty cool too. :)

On top of that, there is the eventuality that you run out of space... orZ... even with all 5 or 6 gobbiebag enhancements. Or maybe the person who thinks you always have more room is one of those asses who goes everywhere expecting someone else to sneak, invis, etc. him/her/whatever.

this is a realy sucky hat if u think about it cause at 75 u get the duelist chapeau wichh add refesh wich in my personal oppion rocks also this is the first i have heard of AF+1. does it matter what server im on an im guess u gotta do some other crazy quest to get the +1


Haha.. You don't "Get AF2" hat at 75 anytime soon. It's not an artifact quest, you have to win the lot in Dynamis against everyone else who has red mage leveled and competition is fierce. Add that to an average drop rate on RDM hat is about 2-3 a year unless you do nothing but Dynamis-Xarcabard all year andthat adds up to: "you won't be seeing it anytime soon."
No, it's not as good as AF2 hat but it's still **** handy for nuking, drop rate on crimson mask is just as low if you can even win a claim.

[quote]No, it doesn't. The only stats that are increased from the NQ are the ones you can see. No "Enhances X Ability effect" on AF+1 and AF2+1 are further enhanced in the upgrades.[quote]

Proof? or just another voice insisting they "know" without facts to back them up?
Sigh. This is why I avoid the forums...

Could anyone tell me as to whether or not the +1 actually enhances the "Fast Cast" even more? Thanks.
