    Blessed Pumps +1 or Rostrum Pumps

    I know the stats of both; and I know that (like most any piece) I'm sure it will be situation which to wear.

    But my question is does anyone have both pieces and has tried them both. The "Enhances Fast Cast" is 1%. How much is the Haste +3% in comparison?

    Obviously the Blessed is better for Enmity and Mind and the Rostrum good for INT.

    So.... is the Blessed Pumps +1 just better than Rostrums?

    Note: Obviously this is for WHM main. :wink:

    Try both out. Then decide what works best for you.

    I don't have both, or I would have tried them....

    I guess I'm asking to see if anyone out there has both and/or has tried both. Any results to share?

    Sorry for not being so clear.

    I really can't think of any reason for using rostrum pumps if you have blessed +1.

    For those of you not familiar with the stats, here ya go:

    Rostrum Pumps
    HP -30, MP +30, INT +3, MND +3
    Enhances Fast Cast Effect (+1%)

    Blessed Pumps +1
    MP +20, MND +4, Haste +3%, Enmity -5

    - Rostrums has more MP (+10) than the Blessed +1, but at the cost at HP (-30).
    - Rostrums has +3 INT... which WHMs make little to no use of.
    - Blessed +1 has more MND (+1).
    - Blessed +1 has Enmity -5, whereas Rostrums do not effect Enmity at all.

    Haste vs. Fast Cast: Since the Fast Cast on the Rostrums is only a piddily +1%, you will literally not see a difference in casting time on just about any spell you cast. However, you'll shave off a bit on the Recast timer, where the real benefit is.

    However, Haste does the same thing. And you get +3% Haste vs. +1% Fast Cast. The math isn't hard here.

    Winner: Blessed Pumps +1.

    Thanks all.

    That's basically what I was looking for... I wasn't quite sure that Haste +3% was much better than 1 Fast Cast.

    Looks like I just need to find the pumps +1 now.....

    Hmmm. :D

    You will have no problem finding a pair if you are willing to play at the next level. I'm sure you have it in you.

    You know on KI, there are forums for White Mages.

    I am lucky enough to have a pretty maxed out whm... My LS has been very generous.

    Aristocrats, Blessed Mitts and Trousers +1... Vivian ring, Tamas Ring, etc. etc.

    I've been using the Rostrum Pumps for awhile because I had always naturally assumed the Fast Cast was good. It only dawned on me recently that the Pumps would be better.

    This forum validated that claim. Time to bug my Leather crafting buddy. :wink:

    PS - BRP, yes I am aware of KI... but I trust opinions here a bit more.

    Anyone else find it funny that this guy has all this hq gear and yet can't figure out which boots are best on his own?

    Waste of good gear to have it on such a sheep imo.

    Oh yes, but a Haste build with the pumps would be better with a certain belt that gives Attack, Haste and Subtle Blow +6.
