Oynos KnifeFollow

I picked one of these up the other day. Since I don't have a Kannagi yet (too busy with 5 other jobs), I was previously using Oirandori(sp) and Kamome. Now I've been using the Oynos offhand, and wanted to post here about it.

The haste proc on the knife is low, I'd say 10%, but it's more than enough to reapply haste within 10-20 seconds after it wears, so effectively, you have perma-haste sans mage, which makes dual-boxing even easier. Because the knife is 40dmg, it's no slouch in the DD department either. Eyeballing, I'd say both main and offhand swings average the same damage, though I definitely notice the absence of the crit boost on the Kamome (with it, my hits seem to hover around 200 without food, without it, my hits seem to over around 170). Still, the perma haste and low delay make up for it, IMO.

Also, I've been experimenting with alternative third atmas a lot lately (RR/Apoco being the first 2), and I recently had an enjoyable experience using Would-be King. With the added TP regain and the small amount of conserve TP (coupled with the 7 conserve TP from thunder belt), it's not unusual for me to have 20-25 TP after doing a WS, and I've often been able to WS 4+ times a minute.

Now, as I said, I don't yet have a kannagi, so I'm wondering if anyone else has had a chance to experiment with the knife. Is it as good as I think it is, or am I just easily amused?

once haste procs, i usually take it off and put kamome in its place. the effect remains for 3 minutes. If I'm on dnc I just top off my hp, hit haste samba and switch if I had a surplus of tp before it proced. I think I overpaid for it since I bought it when it just came out for 1.2m however I don't regret it, it procs often enough that it doesn't bother me that I lose tp switching gear to get the benefit of spell haste for 3 minutes. It has made my solo's very enjoyable :).

I daresay the haste effect procs faster than most average WHM haste cycles. Sometimes I Don't even get haste when I ask for it so I put the knife on xD. For future prospectors, wait until the market is flooded to pick up a pair. If you're a dual boxer I don't see how this knife would add any value to you, if you enjoy solos with the benefit of haste without having another character around, this dagger delivers :) ( Also love to use it on pup, swing a few, put h2h back on since automatons don't haste ;-; )
