Funny thing, Emp did not appear to be wielding it when he went live. Some reason, I thought I recalled his graphic showing the weap if he was to drop it. Apparently I was mistaken, quite pleasantly so :)

One of the things SOE did well in the Luclin expansion is weapon graphics. Even the elementals in Twilight Sea, trash mobs in several zones, they drop intricate looking weapons. This sword is easily one of the prettiest swords in the game, plus, for people still raiding this zone, it's a great weapon to use, very high AC for a sword at this level

jus got 1 thing to say . rangers will never replace warriors as tanks , however as a 70 ranger 371 aa's i tank riftseekers named when warriors arent logged on. i do this easily not on the brink of oh god is the heal gonna land and do so without wep shield or tricks. so all the who is better at what is a waste. build your toon as well rounded as you can and quit trying to be number one when haveing the ability to multi role is so much better to get groups with.

I've had rangers tank riftseekers for me several times. I know for a fact that one had significantly less than 377 AA at the time. It really all depends on your gear. If the ranger has Qvic armor or better, tanking riftseekers is no real problem. I suspect it could probably be done in Time gear, although I have not tried.

Quite boring here,and have nothing to do now,so wanna post this as as Ranger's point of view:

1st This 2h is only useful for players who dont have EP flag nor GoD higher tier(Well,needless to say,EP GoD weapon are clearly MUCH better than this)

2nd For those who still in SoL or PoP tier 2 players,the 54 AC on this sword is the stats cuased argument(Yea,if all you need is melee DPS,BoT weapon:Great staff of four wind is an easily-obtainable weapon for RNG/SK/PAL,and SK can get another 2h staff fron BoT too.PAL...hmm)

3rd Knight classes need AC the most,we Ranger can understand that.But this sword is the best weapon to Ranger too(Well,it produce the highest DPS before entering EP GoD,please note this 2-hander has higher DPS than any dual-wielding combination before we hit EP.And the proc is so cool,our only Lifetap proc two-hander if you can understand that.)

4th Bow,the pain for Ranger.Honestly speaking,as a 511 AA EP Ranger,I hate Archery.I would rather fighting with my melee weapon than using my ranged attack Bow.EQ dont have autofire hotkey for archery,that mean either we have to keep hitting the keyboard to fire every arrow or we have to use gamepad.Its annoying I must say.Good DPS Archery is,I agree.But I hate it,really hate it.

5th Ranger--a class who have higher DPS than PAL/SK but has much worse mitigation than plate tanks.The Sword of Ssra is great for both DPS and tanking ability for Ranger as it does to you Knights.So dont take the high AC part as the standpoint to support that Knight should get this first.Give us Ranger a equal chance as you for obtaining a good weapon.I can assured you,we Ranger do need some extra AC since we do tanking when things goes wrong sometimes.

In the same situation and a nice bow dropped I would assume that it would go to a ranger first warrior second and sk/pally third. If a pally or sk tried to get that bow, all the rangers would be up in arms. Why should it not be the case in reverse? A 2hs like this is more beneficial to a Pally or SK

LuposF says: "Sure it will almost always be resisted about tier 2 mobs".
This is incorrect. Go to the Lucy's link , and click on the effect. It clearly states that this is unresistable. Also, I have one, and it never gets resisted when it procs, never.
#LuposF, Posted: Jul 24 2004 at 11:56 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I got myself one of these bad little toys recently. All of you fooking noob knigths crying over it need to stfu. there are weapons with much better ratio/effect than this that are pal/sk ONLY. TO put the myth aside, rangers DO tank. I have done it many times myself. With the speed and number of hits a ranger can produce when DWing, using a 2hs is a MUCH better option for tanking. I have all 2hs AA that rangers are given, and i still eat about 1/3 the ripostes that i do when using DW and tanking. You idiots saying that a ranger is on the bottom of the list for a 2hs and that they should only be using a bow, you need to go and cry to momma. A ranger with a schweet ratio 2hs is better dps than a pal/sk could ever hope to be. In many cases a pal/sk WON'T be tanking higher end mobs anyway, they are just dps anywhere above tier 3(there ARE exceptions to the rule, but not too many). A pal/sk should stick with some of the sick weapons that have rather powerful aggro enducing procs, things like http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=7040 for instence. As a ranger that tanks, i would love the proc. Sure it will almost always be resisted about tier 2 mobs, but the aggro still hits even if it is resisted. I am tired of idiot noobs saying that a ranger shouldn't be using 2hs. Rangers get a cap of 250 skill in 2hs for a reason.... Yes, rangers aren't the best tanks, but we can hold our own. Using a 2hs rather than DW 1hs, we take alot less damage from ripostes. All in all.....KNIGHTS NEED TO STFU AND STOP WHINING ABOUT LOSING THE LOTTO TO THE QUIET RANGER WITH MORE POINTS!!!!! /flame off

Alright, let's set a couple of things straight...

A ranger, with a 2hs, is not a better dps than an equally geared/AA'ed/buffed SK/Pally. I severly DOUBT that would happen. COmparable? Yes. WIll the ranger always parse out lower? No. But he won't be better all the time, or probably even most of the time.

Quote:
You idiots saying that a ranger is on the bottom of the list for a 2hs and that they should only be using a bow, you need to go and cry to momma.


I explain you saying this, by you also saying this:

Quote:
I have all 2hs AA that rangers are given


You obviously haven't gotten your bow AA's. Rangers, with a bow, are scary DPS, critting left and right. A ranger with a decent bow and the bow AA's will outdo a ranger with a good 2HS and those AA's any day.... you're a RANGEr... note the word RANGE in your very name.. you're meant to be a class that wanders around, attakcing things from a distance. It's what you do best.

Quote:
Yes, rangers aren't the best tanks, but we can hold our own


Holding you're own and being a good tank aren't the same thing. A pally/sk will always be amuch better tank than an equally geared/AA'ed ranger. Period. End of discussion.

The end of your own post points out your own logical flaw. YES the ranger with more AA's MAY outdo a pally/sk, but, in the long run, the SK/pally are better at what they do, and you're better at what you do, which is shooting things from REEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYY far away.

Now get back to doing your job, bow boy.

Ohh, and just for fun, why did the chicken cross the road? The ranger ran across it to get away from him.

I agree completly, I am tired of people draging out a time ranger with 300+ AA's and showing he can tank just as well as me, an ornate and LDoN geared Pally with 100 AA's. But if a Ranger wants to bid on this he is free to he is just going to have to pay at least 1 more DKP than I have.

It says that the proc on this is is a type of Life-Tap. Is that true or did they mess that up a bit?

Also, how often does this thing proc (assumeing you don't have the AA put up to increase weapons proc rates)?? It would be cool if it proced as often as a Cleric's hammer of souls procs....but very few things do.

I think his point is that there are a BUNCH on Pally and SK one handed weapons with great ratios. There are not quite as many that are usable by dual wielders. Its a good item but if you are a knight there are probably quite a few better items out there that will cost significantly fewer DKP.

My guess is that most knights won't want to bid on this item because it just won't be a good DKP value for them.

RE: No Paladins
# Sep 08 2004 at 7:08 AM Rating: Decent
Itís quite clear you have NO idea what you are talking about. Pallys and SKs will almost always use a 2 handed weapon, not only do we do more damage with a 2 handed but the high delay cuts down on ripstops than can kill you fast in PoP and GoD. My guild is not yet into the elemental planes but are now farming the Emperor and Lord Inquisitor gearing up for VT but this or the BBB is what I am saving my DKP for.

Now you said there are fine one hand weapons but there are 2 reasons that the 2 handed weapons will out damage 1 handed, number 1 is that knights damage AA's a geared to 2 handed weapons. The next reason is the damage bonus, unless the damage bonus on the one hander is twice that of the 2 hander and the damage bonus applied to one handers is 13 across the board. To calculate the damage potential you take 2x damage + bonus / delay. Aside form the damage potential look at the stats on the weapon 50ac 20sta and 125hp plus the 100pt LT all things that Knights who are notoriously low on HP need. So basically until a knight can get either a SEWS or a FPM and a time+ shield this is one of the best investments a knight could make.

The Shield block AA and good OoW armor quests are changing things. However, this sword is STILL bad-ass.

Dropped recently and went to... A Ranger !!
# May 25 2004 at 7:47 PM Rating: Decent
Yup; Guild dropped emp about our 5th time now; 2hs dropped for the second time (1st went to SK) the Ranger was currently Dual Weilding Claw of Vyz Dra in main and Render of souls in offhand , but he had more dkp than any other knight/war or ranger in guild. Went for it and got it

A couple of knights moaned but got on with it. The ranger has used it in the past few weeks and is doing awsome dps; He has all necesary AAs for extra damage with 2 handers etc He can get up to almost the same Dps as his archery (non disc) Which proves this fine 2hs is good in the hands of a ranger

As for the "Warriors can use this because in PoP you want to use a 2hander to cut down riposte" crap; My guild had killed emp first after we had killed a few pop bosses. Now were in EPs and looking to start clearing up EP gods. Not once has our guilds MT used a 2hander and not once have we had a problem.... Although hes wanting his Blade of War now badly :p

As for the ranger bit, see my post above, smacking around some complete idiot.

As for the riposte factor, I agree with you that it's not as much an issue, however, certain mobs a 2hander is better due to DS. I know Fennin Ro is one of these, as his DS is supposedly, never encountered it myself, but eventually I will, frightening, and can pul a hurting on your cleric's mana.

Just my opinion, but I'd give this weapon to one of your main tanks. If your killing emp, your nearing pop advancement. Main Tanks do a lot better with 2hs on bosses in VT and PoP due to the riposite factor. Just my thought.

P.S. Who cares about aa's and life taps? It's a cool sword for anyone that can use it. Let it go man......

first off erenoa you are very free with the insults shows both a lack of inteligence and general civility. (either very young or just a jerk)
second you did not address the basic facts of why if what you said were true about both the soul abrasion and theft of life aa and why on a lower lifetap proc it would not work on a much higher life tap proc.
you did nothing but insult which is fine as for my lvl im a lvl 62 sk with 50aa a lvl 65 shammy with 150 aa and a lvl 62 cleric with 55 aa. (o and as for ebay HAHA No i worked my ass off for it) so yes i know my classes and capabilitys very well.
can you say the same ?.
o also know that no ranger has the ability to pull the agro off of my shammy when he slows dots and nukes unlike pallys sk and war.
nor can they pull agro off from clerics with heal agro.
so no you as a ranger class still fall last on the list for a knights sword after all the tank classes.
then and only then should a ranger get this type of weapon.
and yes truth does hurt.
this only goes back to my first statement WHO CAN MOST benifit from this kind of a weapon not who can use it or not.. who gets the best benifit from it.
knight classes then war berz then ranger.
from your posts you seem very ignorant of certain facts and untill you play the class you have no room to insult or chastise.
on a side note i respect the ranger class and hold most rangers in high reguard.
any one that can hit and crit in the high 2k to 4k with a bow is a very great addition.
and no ranger can use a 2hs and get that kind of damage.
#Salamok, Posted: Apr 27 2004 at 3:04 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Heh, no ranger can keep aggro off your shammy and cleric? Then they aren't trying. Why do you think rangers are given a line of spells to decrease aggro? It has been shown time and time again, that SK's and Pallies don't have a chance of getting aggro off a Ranger who doesn't want to give it up. But in general, we do want to give it up, after all: A) Rangers are a chain class, and don't mitigate as well as the plate classes, and B) Yeah, Rangers do put out excellant DPS with a bow, which requires that we not be tanking. And with the most recent patches, the bow works regardless of whether or not the target is in the wall, how many Players/pets/mezzed mobs are in the way. And you can even stare at the floor while doing all this. So if I can use my bow you can be darn sure that I am. But when my duties include tanking, off tanking adds, root parking, etc, then I will definitly have a 2 hander out for damage + aggro. Because while archery is great damage, it is also low aggro.

----Yes you are right,Soul Abrasion DID(like you said)work on Serpent Bite and turn it to be a 250 DMG lifetap.Great...

----Yes,you are right.Leech Curse is a SK AA.It
will work on Serpent bite too.

----Yes you are right.Shadowknight should get this first since it will crit healing 1000ish HP for Sk with Soul Abrasion+SCF+ToL.Sk can use it better than the rest of us.

----Yes you are right.I always thought Ranger is the aggro King in EQ except Chain-Tashaning ENC.Well,turns out snare and Immolate actually dont have any aggro to mob .

----Yes,you are right.Those tanking in PoP Ssra VT are just my dream.I will be dead in one sec if I really try tanking there.

----Yes you are right.Archery can crit for 4000 damage in one shot.I forgot to train my skill from guild master,thats why my Stonewood can only crit 2300ish instead of 4000...


----Yes you are right.I will pass all items from now on since every one of them has AC higher than 20 and Plate tank will benefit the most from them.

----Yes you are right.I lie to you my Highness.I was actually playing the Beta-test version of EQ.And those 315 AA on my Ranger is the result I modfified the data from client-side and cheat the Test server.

............You have answered your own question === Theft of Life(aka Healing Gift,crit healing any form of heal spell),which is the AA totally different from what you have said in your other posts(soul abrasion,leech curse...etc).

See,thats quite meaningless replying your posts.I am here for discussion even argument but not for teaching newbie.Im rude you say??Yes,if you are truely a high level SK as you claimed(which I doubt)and you got no idea about your own class AA,then you are a newbie to me.Sorry Displacer,but truth always hurts...

since you posted i should know my class better
would just like to point out that the listed aa have nothing to do with the HT of a sk
with the exception of leach touch which adds the heal affect from a harm touch.

the other 2 listed aa are all LIFETAP base and enhance any and alll lifetap based spell both proc from a weapon or self buffs.
so yes i have done much research before i opened my beak here.
and it would be sad if you got your sword at the expense of a knight that could have used it..

Lol are you on crack man??Dont post something only from your imagination.Let me quote this from in-game SK AA description:

Soul Abrasion == This ability gives you increased damage off of the lifetap procs that results from YOUR SELF buffs.

Leech Curse == This is not even an AA,Displacer.Its a disc which you can buy it from EC tunnel.Using it will grants you the ability to drain mob's HP everytime you hit the mob in melee.

This might be my last reply to you Displacer.Its quite sad I have to teach a SK about their own class.Wish what I have said will help you level your SK to post-50...

So do those Soul Arasion,Leech Curse...etc really do you any good on lifetap proc as you said??

This is kinda offtopic if post it below this EMP 2h discussion,but...well...since a few SKs still dont get it,I will explain it here...

1st ) Class forums are your best friends.Lots useful info you can get there if you want to know more about EQ

2nd ) Weapon proc wont be triggered on riposte...you still dont believe me??Go parse it yourself.Find a greenie,pull it and log on(remember: turn on "your miss",and dont fight back).Come back a few hours later.You should get quite a few ripostes at this point,check it is there any proc from them.

3rd ) You said you have seen weapon's "stun-effect" and LDON lifetap aug procced at the same time?? Me too,I've seen that quite frequently.Ranger's Cry of Thunder effect, Serpent's bite(Yea,I already got my EMP 2h) and LDoN aug can be triggered at the same DOUBLE ATTACK check.But they are not proccing from the same SWING.

Displacer,this might be a little harsh to you but most of your points are invalid.Is the SK really your main char??

Erenoa if you have ever played or even looked at the sk as a class you would not have to ask that question but since you did.

when has either the paly or ranger had any of the below listed aa or our leach curse abilitys.

1.soul abrasion
2. leach touch
3. leach curse
all 3 of those will enhance any type of lifetap proc
and if any of them proc at the same time have the potential to quad both the damage as well as the healing power from that sword.
can then add knights advantage and double repost and advanced double repost.
does this become clear to you now why this is very benificial to a SK over palys and rangers.
and i have never stated they should not get the sword at some point in time just they should not be at the top of the list.

Err,how long you have played your SK??

1.soul abrasion -- This AA does not work on weapon proc,it will only affect SK's selfonly Lifetap imbue spell.

2. leach touch -- And this??This is merely a HT-related AA,it has nothing to do with the proc "Serpent Bite"

3. leach curse -- Whats this??Why you keep talking about these Harmtouch stuffs??

No offense,but you have to do more homework about your own class,and ...

1) No matter how many proc effects on your weapon(include imbue spell),there is only ONE proc can be triggered at once.

2) I dont know why you mentioning those 2h triple attack and riposte AA(shrug).Weapon proc doesnt work when you riposte

PS: In case you are not familiar with other classes' AA

Knight's Advantage is Ranger's Ferocity but with a different name

Riposte and advance Riposte AA??I think PAL/SK/RNG all have these...

BAH was going to flame the rangers in this post but its not worth it.
order of issue on this should run
sk
paly
war
ranger

why
sk beinifits the most from the lifetap proc as we do not have any self heals and can get the highest proc form this with the proper aa.
also this helps augment our harmtouchs as well.
next the paly.
for many of the same reasons 2hs are knights bread and butter.
then the war for all the same reasons has a life proc to help keep him up as a tank.
then the ranger when he can not get a good shot or the mob is cornered (walled) and has no other choice but to melee.

Hmm,just to clarify some stuffs for you knight
classes.Altho Ranger can dual wield,that doesnt mean DW can do the highest DPS.Its all about what weapon you using.

Ever heard of PoP AA Ferocity and Punishing Blade??These AA are designed for 2h weapon.With these AA,the EMP 2h can do DPS HIGHER than any DW combination(Before you hit Elemental Plane).

Yes,I am sure this sword will help Knight class tanking better and doing more damage,but so does Ranger.And it is stupid to say all Ranger need is a good bow.Its true Archery does good damage,but it bugged a lot.

Walled mob??Archery is useless
Lagged??Archery DPS become very low
Lots ppl Levi'ed??Cannot use Archery
PAL stun,pet pushing??Grats,bow is useless now and you have to melee.

As a Ranger,I can tell you this.Rangers do need good melee weapon.But I am not saying we should get this sword before any other class.All usable classes should have equal chance for this baby.High AC on it shouldnt make it defaulted to Tank classes.

ShadowKnight/Paladin 2H AAXPs:

Speed of the Knight
Knight's Advantage
2-hand Bash

Ranger 1H AAXPs:

Ambidexterity
Sinister Strikes

Knights are going to get the most benefit from a 2HS, and since they're tanks, are going to be putting the most use out of the AAXP Riposte skills. This may possibly be an upgrade in DPS for a rare few Ssraeshza Rangers, but is nowhere NEAR the increase that their bow can achieve, let alone 2 good proccing 1-handers.

Knights will undoubtedly receive the most benefit out of this weapon and if your guild decides that a Ranger deserves this over their Knights, it's probably not going to have this argument any time soon.

Long story short:

1) Max all 2h AA,EMP 2h will out-damage any dual-wield combination if you are not flagged to EP.GoD has some awesome 1h too,but I would doubt any non-EP Ranger could get any of them.

2) 50% or more of my playing time is using melee(Use Archery in PoP of course,but rarely in LDON),and we DO need some good melee weapon imo.

Two good 2h for Ranger I can think of(easily obtainable) -- BoT GSo4W and HoH WoB.Both slightly doing less DPS than EMP 2h.SK has -- Ssra Goldenrod and BoT GSH GSo4W,EMP 2h doing more than these 2 a bit.So what really cause the argument is this part -- 50 AC on EMP 2h(btw,this is the only RNG usable 2h proccing Lifetap which helps a bit in combat too).Both SK/PAL and Ranger gain benefit a lot from this sword,and as I said in last post "High AC on it shouldnt make it defaulted to tank classes" otherwise all good stuffs will all be defaulted to Knights since they all has good AC on them.

ps:doh,still a long post.Anyway,I think this sword is not so hot on my guild's SK/PAL wishlist.Most of them are rating Seru's BBB as their 1st priority since its Rune proc serves tanking better than lifetap.But if your guild is using DKP,then take what you love then :)..

1) that's IF your Ranger decides to max out 2H aaxp's instead of 1H aaxps... a Ranger can achieve a better DPS w/ 2 1Handers and AAs for the 1H skills, and still not increase his DPS over Archery. Both GoD and PoP have amazing 1Handers you can get before you're Ssra capable.

2) I never said a Ranger shouldn't get this weapon... simply the FACT that a tank will benefit much MORE than a Ranger will.

Go ahead, spend your points the way you like... but sacrificing a small amount of DPS and utility so that your tanks can gain a much more efficient upgrade is what makes you a much greater asset to your guild than actually weilding this weapon.

Did some research, and you're right, GSo4W is one of the more popular 2handers, and in fact, Rangers can output more DPS w/ 2-handers over most 1hand combos.

I was actually underestimating this weapon in the hands of anybody, let alone Rangers. And extremely underestimated the GoD encounters (chalk that up to new experiences... whew)

But my question is still this... what would benefit your guild as a whole better?

Truthfully, I never have any remorse for rolling/dkping against someone who's interest is more on themself and less on their guild as a whole. I've rolled and won (droppable) items and given them to others that could put them to better use.

I said it before and I'll say it again... a small sacrifice for your guild is much more honorable, and will be remembered when that really nice Bow drops...

(p.s. It's still not more DPS than Archery)

Why? Ranger Archery DPS is AMAZING, especially with the right AAXPs... yes... there are situations that bows aren't going to be preferred, or buggy situations in which melee would be better.

But this is a much less "situational" weapon for Knights than it is for Rangers. Yes, Knights have more options open to them too, and I can understand your reasoning for wanting to get this weapon, but then again, I guess I could use that reasoning for when a really nice Bow drops... cause there are situations when you don't want any melee near the mob.

Who am I kidding?... like a Ranger will be alive long enough to loot it...

so much bickerin over who should and who should not have this paticular sword.
couple of things rangers should keep in mind.
on you are not ment to be a tank that is not your place. never has been never will be.
now that is not to say you can not do the job.
next you for get who will benifit from this type of weapon most.
not a question of can you use or deal good damage with it but who will benifit more from it.
sound like a ranger with greed if there is a sk or pally that this is a up grade for.
simple fact 2hs wepons are mainly knight class weapons or we would be allowed dual weild.
we are not so go figure who would benifit more from this.
NGB baby in this case simple facts :-)
#YALDYIL, Posted: Mar 08 2004 at 11:09 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ever here of a mob being stuck in a wall? Renders bow uselss as we don't do ANY damage then. So, would you rather we sit down and med some? Maybe play /gems? Or how about we move in and show you how to melee. Before you open your mouth, engage your brain. Just because we CAN do more damage with our bow doesn't mean we always will be able to do so. And when that happens, guess what? We'll start meleeing. I've had it commented many times that Rangers deal some impressive DPS, melee or bow. Granted bow is far superior with AAs, but our melee damage is nothing to laugh at. And yes, I am a Ranger. I'm lvl 64, and no, I haven't kill Emp Ssraeshza yet but I hope to soon and we do I will most certainly be after this drop, unless I have a better weapon combo.

So you're the guy on raids who closes in on the mob when he's stuck in the wall and pushes him in deeper. Sounds like your guild needs to take away all your melee weapons, let alone giving you new ones.

As for who should get what in general: put in the time, get the dkp, spend it how you want. /shrug Easy enough, clock in, clock out Danielson.
RE: Ranhers most certainly CAN use.
# Mar 15 2004 at 9:23 AM Rating: Good
Whereas your right , rangers can put out awsome DPS in melee too , this weapon is mainly a knight weapon first , Due to the fact they can do more dps with an awsome 2hs than a 1hs ( for guilds that are emp capable , i know there are 1hs in EP's / time that might be better)

Mind you , i'm noticing now , that with lvl 65 and some higher AA's , Punishing blade (more chance of hits with 2handers) that 2 handers dps is going up , but im still certain that with Ambidextiarity , and the new GOD aa's (Sinister strikes and precision of the pathfinder) that dual weild will still come out top

My guild is emp capable and will hope soon to get our first kill , i'd killed it before tho and seen this sword drop , and no rangers went for it :)
I sure as hell will be bidding on Acrylia Handled Broadsword tho

There has been a never ending debate as to why Rangers should or shouldn't get 2hser's. To those of you who think Rangers should never get them, explain this to me...Excluding the Sword of Truth and the ridiculous Big Soul Devourer, why are 8 of the top 10 1hs weapons usable by only Paladins/SK's? And why are 7 of the top 10 2hs weapons usable by Rangers. Hell we dont even get one of the top ten 1hser's we dont get one till 11 or 12. Not saying we should but if we weren't meant to use them, why are we allowed to use so many?

I am not going to get into who should or should not get this weapon. I will, however, like to point out that the berserker class gets a lot of innate bonuses when it comes to wielding a 2h weapon (only kind we can) that would give them an advantage. For those that do not know, Berserkers not only get multible strikes from prime hand weapon but also frenzy with same for an addidtional attack. I know at lvl 52 (at time of this post) I am out damaging most classes several lvls higher than me with same weapon(s).
With our later in life quad hitting and quad frenzy we would be mad DPS machines. Just 1 Berserkers humble opinion.

I think the arguments are foolish about Paladins and Sks passing on this for rangers or even for rangers not wanting... There is also a misconception that there is soooo... many better weapons for Paladins and SK's in PoP that emperor capable people should not care about this weapon at all...

This is totally false i have one of the best weapons that comes form teir 3 Zone and is paladin only. The truth is that these Sword is of = Ratio plus higher with Magic dmg and the Proc is greater so is the Ac and HPs ...

From a tank or dps perspective this weapon is the best DPS weapon for All of the classes invloved who cannot Kill RZTW. And frankly alot of emp cabpable guilds who can muster 36+ well equiped people can kill this who will not be able to kill RZTW without at least 72people.

So the people saying any class should default this weapon are on crak... Over all this is the best Weapon pre RZTW and Elemental plains that any of the classes listed can get with a moderate raid force...

All should have equal chance to bid on the weap and big gratz to any who get...

I will be trying to get this sword sooner than later and if anyone utters such madness of defaulting this weapon I will be very suprised.

No way PAL/SK should get this sword first.Why??Because PAL/SK already have lots of class-only weapon all over the EQ world(Lots of them are DPS-wise than this).And when is the last time you seen a Ranger-only weapon drop??To be honest,with all the stats/ratio/proc/AC,every class which list on it would raise for it in raid when this thing drop.But do your guild Ranger a favor,dont say anything like we tank so we need this uber AC 2h...
Ranger already has a very bad itemlization.We have to compete most of our gears with other classes.And I believe this 2h is probaly the 3rd or 4th best 2h for Ranger in game.If possible,plz let your guild Ranger get this first.Seriously,SK/PAL only weapon just come too easy.You guys already have lots other options,pass this to Ranger first if you could...

Ok, if this thing procs anything like the bo staff(the 2hb for mnk/bst he drops) then no ranger will want this. I(65 war with BoC and GBoS) have xped a lot with a monk that wields the bo staff. That thing is a taunt mangnet. If he doesnt FD he will gain agro. So IMO rangers wouldnt want this weapon unless they wanted to die. Just put your weapon away and sit back and fling arrows. And for when you cant use your bow, just stick to 2 good 1hd weapons. Plenty of them out there with good DPS.

As for the proc,"Serpent's Bite" is a 100 Lifetap with no other side-effects to cause aggro.The aggro caused by this proc is same as 100 straight melee damage.Then again,you might ask why the monk you group with overtaunt you when he was using the 2hb??Because he was doing WAY MORE damage(hate) than you did even with your Increase-Hate proc.What you can blame him??Blame him for using a weapon that MUCH better than yours??No,save yourself some LDON points for Anger III and bid on Blade of War if you want to be a useful MT when group with DPS class.Or you can just ask him switching the staff to some crapy bazaar weapon in case he overtaunt you again.


Above is kinda offtopic tho.Let me emphasis this---This sword not only greatly increase Ranger's DPS but at the same time greatly improved the offtanking ability of Ranger.With all needed AA maxxed,a 100 lifetap can become a crit heal 476 HP (100*2*2*1.19).As for should PAL/SK should get this first,with all those Kight-only weapon's drop rate(drop like rain,rot like dust...too many weapons dropped but all knights already got one),I really suggest all Knight classes pass this to Ranger if they could.

#SphiriahSphinx, Posted: Feb 11 2004 at 9:12 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Now see, If there is one thing i hate about everquest, this is the thing i hate the most. Any ranger with this sword should die. It should go to a pally/sk first then a warrior and only after everyone that wants it has been equiped with it, a ranger. this was never ment to be a ranger weap and personally, i dont even know why they have ranger listed as a usable class. Rangers were never ment to use 2hs ... this is not DPS this is for keeping high agro... Last time i checked rangers had aro lowering spells am i right? so next time this thing drops it should go to a ranger last.

Damn,I spent too much time on Allak lol...
I dont get it Sapiriah.What do you mean this sword is not for DPS but for keeping high aggro??
If you want aggro weapon,lots PAL weapon can do it better than this one(better ratio).The sword of Ssra dont have any special proc for tank to increase aggro if you have seen my last post.And as I said,if all you want is DPS then pass this to Ranger because PAL/SK got many weapons can outdamage this.BTW,I guess you misunderstood what is Ranger's Jolt for.DPS melee all have their way to avoid overtaunt.Monk can FD ROG can evade and Ranger can decrease aggro(SELFONLY).Guess you dont have any Ranger friend huh :)...

Just had to point out to all these noobs that had posted about the sleeper. "he'll never be killed" etc etc....
Sorry to burst your guys' bubble but the sleeper was killed on the Rallos Zek server.
It's a pvp server and I heard the person who got the killing blow was immediately PK'd ROTFL!
Anyway, tangents on Alla are crazy. So funny you can go from talking about this sword to talking about how sleeper is unkillable o.O
All lifetap procs best work at a SK hand

A simple 150 lifetap proc can go up to 750 at a SK's hand with the proper AA's, and only Sk can use that power. So imo all lifetap proc weapons must first go to SK's then Pallys, then other classes ;)

Paladins have --
Spell Casting Fury
Healing Adept
Advanced Healing Adept
Healing Gift
Advanced Healing Gift

These aa's are the ones that affect lifetap proc's.

I dunno if your guild does dkp or not. If it does then it doesn't matter who it should go to first because whoever wants it with the most dkp will get it. Rangers have SCF, and healing aa's too. It still won't save them from dying all the time though hehe =P
Of course... if you can do Emp then there are other mobs you can do that have MUCH better 2hs ratios. Any ranger/warrior getting this is just selling themselves short. Get a 2hs with better ratio for more dps. Let the paladin/sk have this so that they can be good offtankers/tankers with the stats and ac from this thing.
You might ask "better dps?? where??"
Well there are way too many to list... but to get something REALLY easy and almost one-groupable, go to BOT Towers for greatstaff of 4 winds. They spawn every 8 hours so they are almost always up. If you can do emp then BOT towers is a breeze.

The only AA that affects weapon procs for SKs is Theft of Life. I have Soul Abrasion 2 and Theft of Life 1. Very rarely will I score a critical heal, and when that happens it is for 200...no where near 750. Soul Abrasion only affects the SK self buffed lifetap line of spells, not weapon procs.

You can go up to that score with SCF3, TOL3 and a ID4 item. You can even score higher. With these AA's i can HT for 9.4K and lifetap for 2.2K (just given as an example)

IH4 item doesn't effect procs from what I've heard. Let me know if I'm wrong please.

Spell Casting Fury affects the proc on this weapon. An Sk can crit blast and then can crit heal with theft of life for the lifetap portion.
