The Tetradic Tiara's got some pretty mean stuff on it and it seems like a waste to dismantle it for the 1 buff the Hermes Sandals/Sprint Shoes has (although I've always been a fan of Auto-Haste gear)... However, I heart the Tetradic Tiara's buffs don't last very long... So basically, I'm asking if you guys would rather have the Sandals or the Tiaras? Also, which one's buffs last longer?

They last roughly 18 seconds.
One of THE most useless accesories, imo.
Sprint SHoes last..longer.

You can make sprint shoes by upgrading Hermes Sandals

wouldnt the tetradic accessory serve you better as a crown? for critcal defensive buffs rather than auto-buffs

@JoeBreezy: I know that but isn't the only way to get Hermes Sandals breaking up a Tetradic Tiara?

which is about as much time as you have to 5 star lower missions with your postgame team so think again

Personally, I'd rather have the Sprint Shoes. Seriously, the Auto-Haste from them is invaluable. Combine that with a Whistlewind Scarf for the +10% ATB Charge Time, and you're in God Tier.
My interpretation of reality is different than yours. Don't destroy my reality, even if it is a fantasy.

In addition to the ones you get in the storyline, there is a mark mission that drops tiaras, and you can get one more from the chocobo hot and cold. I dismantled one for the sandles and upgraded it to the shoes, and have had them equiped ever since. Have yet to equip a tiara once...and I'm well past the end of the game.
I have zero tolerance for zero intelligence.

Except if you're taking less that 18 seconds to 5 star missions, all the protection buffs are completly useless.
Care to try again?
