Grants a bonus to attack speed, accuracy, and Strength when using two-handed weapons, but increases recast and casting times.
Obtained: Samurai Level 25
Recast Time: 1:00
Hasso overwrites and is overwritten by Seigan.
Hasso will only take effect when the player is equipped with a two-handed weapon (Hand-to-hand weapons do not count as two-handed weapons).
A 50% increase in casting and recast time will be imposed on magic, song, and ninjutsu while Hasso is in effect.
The haste effect will not reduce the amount of TP gained per hit, and is considered job ability haste.
Occasionally triggers Zanshin after landing a normal attack, only active while Samurai is set as Main Job. (Source: 7/12/11 Update)
The strength boost is based on the level of the Samurai increasing by 1 STR every 7 levels (at level 25, the boost is +3; but at level 84, the boost is +12).
When Samurai is set as a subjob, the value is based on the sub level, i.e. a DRG85/SAM42 will have a boost of 6.
A level 84 Samurai will gain a boost of +12 STR, +10 Accuracy, and +10% Haste for melee attacks.
