    Anyone know what Enhances Desperate Blows actually does on the relic feet?

    I'm trying to build a TP set around not having Haste on my feet in the case that this augment actually does something good. For all I can tell, you have to full time them to get the benefits from Last Resort, so I assume it will be the same for the Augment as well.

    Any info would be appreciated.

    Nothing has been found and its nothing worth caring about. I've had mine for weeks and haven't seen it do anything. Its even been tested at 4/5 DB and still nothing....

    I had mine for weeks, and I dont see a huge increase, maybe like a 2% reduction in delay (if that) but its definitely not anywhere close to 5%. I really like the boots based on the Last Resort enhancement instead which allows me to give up alot less in the defense trade off. Final note its just hard to see a difference in your desperate blows with the boots on, I should do some controlled testing on them but I been lazy these past days

    Idk, but I would love to see a noticeable boost on them, idk if SE is going to scale relic gear up too lvl 99 but if the don't I definitely need to see a bigger boost too the desperate blow effect

    There is no delay reduction not even 2%, its been tested already.

    The Def boost from leaving these on during LR isn't worth the gear swap and if you are getting hit you should be in full PDT if the Def matters.

    Unless they are broken its Porter Moogle material.

    ; ;. Sigh. Thanks for the info. I really don't know what to say. Enhances Desperate Blows was just too good to be true I guess.

    Idk I dont feel like it does nothing, it does feel like it gives a slight slight boost, however its very minimal.

    Its been tested.................

    Kirschy: experienced FPS tester

    Finished my Abyss Sollerets +2 tonight. (I've been slacking, I know.... Just ridiculously busy lately.) Ruled out JA Haste (for 2H or 1H), WS DMG+, Crit Dmg+

    JA Haste test:

    Naked except staff + boots.
    Desperate Blows merits @ 4/5
    Recorded 10 attack frames

    Base: 1788 frames (Avg: 5.96s per attack round)
    LR: 1438 frames (Avg: 4.77s per attack round)
    LR + Hasso: 1356 frames (Avg: 4.52s attack round)

    That follows the predicted pattern, so it doesn't appear to give any extra JA Haste.

    Crit Attack Bonus was tested by firing Ranged Attacks outside Bastok /w and w/o LR up... no damage difference.

    WS DMG+ was tested by using Infernal Scythe /w and w/o LR up... no damage difference.

    Tested LR using a 1H weapon, but no delay difference.

    Any ideas, feel free to PM or leave em around. I'll try to get more testing done later.
