haste note

I'm sure many know this but I wanted to say that if it does have a hidden effect of Haste+1% then the best way to figure this out would be to use it with an odd number of haste already equipped and a NIN or /NIN job. Equip Fuma or Sarutobi which gives +3% and use utsusemi Ichi. since every 2% haste is 1 second of the recast then your timer should be 29 with just the boots and 28 with ribbon and boots if effect is there. If you cast the spell manually you can open the menu quick and watch the timer when it goes from 0 > 28 or 29 and know undoubtably if the ribbon has haste or not. Just a tip but many of you are geniuses out there. someone already knew that.

I cannot nor will I confirm the above statements about this outstanding ribbon but what I can tell you is that, "The capabilities of this ribbon are poorly undestood or known." My addition to the ribbon's attributes is Paralyze <t>. I make this statement because I have witness the action many times "when I had not cast paralyze but the mob is paralyzed", fact not fiction. As a RDM, I appreciate this ribbon's capabilities and very glad I wear it. Thank you,

You probably had ice spikes on you...

Ice Spikes add Paralyaze when the mob hits you

I got it because it looks dope with my kote and gi. It reminds me of Ryu from Street Fighter 2. If it gives haste, great, if not, great.. still looks cool. Better than my AF except for Focus and Chi Blast too...

I personally think that this item gives +1 to *every stat in the game*, they just couldn't add all of them to the item description. Sort of like how the Arete del Sol probably has more Resist bonuses to it than the three listed, there just isn't space for the rest.

This'd explain the disputed Haste+1% and so forth.

Sorry to say, that is not possable. After equipping this, I found that it gave no HP or MP regen while healing. It is possable that it has other hidden effects, but these two are not among them unfortunately.

No haste--just a rumor

Well, I'm not sure about attack speed, but it seems phony to me. My friend had some extra cash, and found one for cheap so decided to pick it up. He tried it with Utsusemi timers, using the following macro:

/ma "Utsusemi: Ichi" <me>
/recast "Utsusemi: Ichi"

He then spammed the macros quickly so as to see the /recast time as it was immediately cast.

So long as there is not a latent condition to this ribbon, which I highly doubt, it does not reduce spell timer delay in any manner indicative of haste. Timers for Ichi remained at 30 seconds. Fuma kyahan by comparison give 3% Haste, and reduce Ni timers to 43 seconds, Ichi to 29.

For the record: it looks like a red headband, similar to Noble's ribbon when equipped.

Anyway, enough with the BS. It doesn't give haste :/ I wish it did, but it doesn't.

I've tested this item and I can't find any evidence that my attack speed is any greater with it. With or without the ribbon, high/low delay knuckles, w/ or w/o my brown belt as a supplement, or any combination of them. Tested in white, yellow and orange hp. The numbers are all the same. Is there some special condition for the haste? Sure, the ribbon is better than my AF, but the explicit stats are not 900k better. Not at this point at least.

Clarification? Support? I want to give it another chance before it goes for sale.

I tried testing it too, didnt see a hidden effect of haste on my scythe... but when I switched to a tactician magician's espandon +1 it was like I was using a dagger... I just remember having crappy attack speed in BCNM40 and great attack speed on my sword... I dunno; maybe it adds to sword attack speed? :/

Huh, I wasnt even paying attention to my attack speed (as I never do)... Gives me all the more insentive to sell it at the price I been trying to; lol.

It's currently 200k (I was shouting 500k and someone offered 100k, I was like... uh...) Anyways, Kujata server, I'm selling for 500k, on from 9-12 pm (closer to 12pm... Mountain Time) Mon-Fri if anyone wants to send me a msg to buy it. I really dont wanna go for less than 500k cuz I'll either be using it for 5 more lvls, or I'll be using it till I get enough money for my bloodsword =]

Haste doesnt only affect attack speed, it affects spell delay too. And I can assure you my recast timer went down by the same amount that haste brings it down when i wore this ribbon.

Ok it was that...OR it was because you as a RDM got Fast Cast III at 55. Take another look at those timers without the ribbon on. The only piece of equipment that comes close to giving the amount haste that the spell gives is the Monk's black belt. I highly, strongly, and deeply doubt that this ribbon gives any more than a possible 1% haste.

Yeah i agree... Haste Spell = 12% haste

Speed Belt + Dusk Gloves +1 = 12%

If super ribbon gave 12% haste then the 70million price tag for speed belt would look silly now wouldnt it?

BTW 1% haste = .6 seconds removed from Recast timers so its possible to not totice the reduction in recast unless stacked with an item with a more visible reduction (Fuma speed belt etc.)

As is i doubt it has hidden effect. just be happy with all the bonuses it DOES give you
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 07 2005 at 2:30 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) its like the most perfect head piece, its for everyjob, they should rename it too Uber ribbon T,T, i would be rocking this thing for my drk, i got rid of my Shock Mask because i want to save up for this fine piece of equipment, and only 2 are on the jeuno AH Ifrit atm, i will no doubt beleave its valve will raise to the mil mark by the end of march.

"Uber" is a German word meaning "over" or "super"...you would, in effect, be calling it super anyway.

Two of these have appeared in the AH on Lakshmi, both times purchased by the same person selling it.

One sale was over a million, if I recall.

However, I have heard a rumor that it has a hidden effect of Haste.

I'd be curious to know if anyone else has either heard or confirmed this.

    wow, whoever picked this up for 20k made out like a bandit. the price history on my server goes 200k, 500k, 500k, 500k, 500k... and that's it.

    I bought mine for the 500k, and I still think its worth it for a lot of jobs. it has a little of everything. the only item that would outclass it is the emp pin for ninja due to the evasion.
    BCNM drop -_-

    They do exist, at least - I found two on the AH this afternoon. Picked mine up for 20,000 on Cait Sith, first person on the price history. Second was sold a few hours later. Unfortunately, no idea at all how to get them. =(

    Damn I need to get all my thoughts together in one post....
    Anyways, just noticed the
    Submitted by: Auto-Collection
    so that puts a different spin on things. From what I hear, and I certainly can't confirm this at my low level, there are several items on the site that have been auto-collected that aren't actually in the game. What this apparently means is that SE either nixed the idea but left its still coded, or they have it coded for a future release but have not yet coded the method of aquiring the item. Again, I am in no position to confirm these allegations, just passing along info from those who are presumedly more knowledgable than I am on this subject.

    Scratch that earlier post. It's the Eremites Ring +1 that doesnt show on AH, the one that gives +3 INT, my mistake. I've been trying to find Saintly +1 but can't yet. Maybe when I finally get around to leveling up some more so I can go to Jueno.......damn real world always interfering.......

    None on AH, no details how to get it anywhere that i've looked :\
    So..... Anyone out there ever even seen this thing before?
    Ok So its auto collection so obviously its either in the game and No has figured it out yet, or theres no way to aquire this item. WTF i want it though lol.

    Just a little FYI: just because it isnt listed in the AH doesnt mean it doesnt exist. Items will not appear on the AH unless someone has actually tried to sell one. For example, Saintly Ring +1 doesn't show up on the San d'Oria AH on Remora, but I own 2 of them. All it means is that no one has listed that item for sale yet. It COULD mean that the item doesnt exist, which i've seen several items here that I believe this to be the case, but it doesnt guarantee that the item isnt out there somewhere.

    Hope that clears a few things up on using the AH.
