This drops during the Ring of Fire

To be a wizzy is to be living on the edge, the edge of always stealing aggro, and I like always living on the edge.

Well, this thing can grab yah too much agro as rogue if you aren't carfull. Poison is one of the high agro procs as many of you know. And if you jump on the wrong mob and get a proc off, you are going to have one mad Enc. So take warning when useing this item. Other than that i gotta say this thing would be one of my Fav. weapons =)

#Mountaineer, Posted: May 06 2002 at 11:28 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Would EVERYONE PLEASE stop saying it is a 15/19 weapon because of the +2 magic damage..!!! Any + damage is NOT added to the base damage, but merely added to the end damage done by the weapon. BANE damage IS added to the base damage of the weapon.

If it has been explained many times, then you must have been out of the room. Elemental and bane damage apply in the same way (elemental if it passes resist, bane if it's the right creature). It is only the damage bonus that is added on afterwords.

Well you can explain it until you are blue in face but it still backstabs and piercers for the same highs vs Magic mobs as Ragebringer did...

wow this is probably in top 5 rogue mainhanders. Not quite as good as bloodbath or tunare dagger, but way way better than ragebringer, horn of Hsraga etc. My (total) guess is that it comes from RoF in Acrylia, many of the drops there are "armband of war" "warmasters XXXX"

Well, there is no doubt that the two 16 damage piercers (Bloodbath and Khawhateverthatnameis) and the +backstab series are significantly better weapons. Still, this is an excellent main-hand piercer for a Rogue and would be an upgrade for many, many people. It cannot be thought of as a straight 15/19 but it is going to average out much better than the base 13/19 would indicate.

The proc is slightly annoying though, DD+DoT componant is a pretty strong hate builder and DoT procs have a tendancy to annoy your enchanters regardless.

Accually it's not one of the best rogue Main handers. The damage from a backstab is based on the damage of a weapon. Varent has limited the amount of damage a backstab can do, so a 19 damage piercer wouldn't do any more then a 16 for max backstab currently but you don't want that Magic damage(can be resisted) getting in the way.
One question...

... it would be a 15/19 weapon regardless of whether or not you are backstabbing with it.

a couple patches ago the announced that bane and elemental dmg would be used in calculating back stabs so this would be a 15/19 weapon when calculating BSs

It's 13/19 with a 2 magic bonus. Makes a big diffrence to Rogues who use the base damage for computing backstab damage, not the damage after the check to see wether the mob resists the magic bonus or not. So, while a warrior fighting a mob with low magic resist would consider this 15/19 a rogue has to think of this as a 13/19.

p.s. 13/19 still rocks! But by this time rogues on all of the older servers should have their epic if they can get any help at all.

#Marton, Posted: May 04 2002 at 4:56 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) It does in fact work as 15/19 on magicbased mobs (seems to be pretty much any mob requiring a magic weapon to hit), so its a 15/19 on say a Seb frog but a 13/19 on a moss snake. (Still managed to beat the moss snake though)

This is not some type of bane item...which requires a certain mob to hit. This is Magic Damage...which will hit any mob that doesnt survive the save versus magic.
Big difference between bane type and resist damage.

#Grixx, Posted: May 03 2002 at 3:51 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) For rogues purposes it's a 13/19 because the 2 extra damage won't get added in for Backstabs. It's added damage that the target can resist.
