I know I'm a noob for asking this. My guild has cleared VT quite a few times and has only chalked up a Trident of Slaughter. Grats rogue. =)

However, the possibility of one of these dropping is always tangible. The most important question ever on the face of Norrath is, though, is what does it look like? =D

(My guess, the primal claymore graphic?)

Who cares what it looks like.

Drools ..... Just look at them stats and resists. For a Ranger that would be awesome resist gear for raids. Since i never get close it dont matter what the damage is vs whatever.
Not to mention the extra 30 in 4 stats.

just my 2cp worth

does bane increase your minimum damage?
RE: min damage
# Oct 26 2005 at 6:20 PM Rating: Decent
Against mobs classified Greater Akheva, this sword is 65/40, +5 magic. Against every other mob it is 10/40, +5 magic.

In either case, if magic damage is not resisted, it goes to 70/40 and 15/40, respectively.

It's great for stats/resists though, so it's not a bad grab :)

The +55 Bane to Greater Akheva will do additional dmg to those mobs only...I am almost sure that is correct...hope that helps
not that great

Holy god, this weapon is 65/40 in vex thal and sometimes a 70/40 when the magic check fails. If that weren't enough the 40 delay adds a huge damage bonus for being so high. I hope when my guild gets in VT every knight class gets one of these, it will definately add a buttload of damage useful for those long long break in times...

Once again this is an AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME weapon, and there are STILL people ********* Ok, so you can only use it here, WHO CARES!!!!!! If it can only ba used here, USE IT HERE AND HUNT HERE!!! My goodness, if you guys would think as much as you complain, you'd be fricken geniuses. I know what your thinking, why the **** would we want to hunt here? Easy answer, you got a 65/40 weapon with GODLY stats <almost godly i should say> and with the new AA exp thing......I'm trusting you all are smart enough to see where i'm headed with this.

My point is this: people complain too much. If people would stop and take the time to look and think these things out, you would too see that this weapon totally rocks. And I don't know about you, but if i were one of the classes that could use it, being 1.0 weight, I wouldn't mind carrying it around with me, ****, I carry two daggers, two 1hb, two h2h, and a 2hb with me all the time to get all my skills up.

I got one of these last night off one of the robe mobs clearing in. I only got to use it for a while before RL required me to log. So far max CRIT has only been 880, but max NON CRIT 600.

First, you don't do exp in Vex. Mobs there have way too many hp's for it. Loot off yard trash is nearly non existant. This is a raid zone, and this weapon was made for this zone period. It's a tool, I know I'm not the only person who packs around 5-8 weapons and depending on where I am, what I'm doing I swap out weapons/gear. I carry 3 1hs, 3 2hs, 1 2hb, and 1 1hpoker. My skills are maxed, each weapon has it's purpose depending on if I'm tanking or just adding to melee dps.

Pathing in Vex can really hose you, and ya it only takes a few unmezable mobs to ruin your day.

As for people who ***** too matter where you go, what game you play, there will always be people who ***** too much. It's a fact of life. You can't please everyone all the time. Fact is that probably less than 10% of the people who play this game will ever see Vex Thal let alone have this weapon. But if everybody had one, or a Blade of Carnage, or Render of Souls, they wouldn't be so special anymore would they?

You are smoking crack bud, i have this and max reg hit is 456 and max reg crit is 754. Of course, those numbers change when your aggressive disc'ing which i like to do alot with this if there's plenty of tank mezzers around. Robes are counted as Akhevans for purposes of this weapon. Only rocks and blobs arent akhevans in VT. Oh, and if your guild wipes out to 3 mob pull in VT, you really suck and need to go back to playing with ToV dragons.

Aye my numbers agree with yours using this sword Belgrim. More or less anyway.

And I wouldn't consider 3 mobs a pull in VT, just something to mess about with. We aim for 4-12 mobs per pull depending on how many tanks we have.

i agree with you quit ********* but man the only time you are going to hunt in VT is on a raid, 2-3 of the yard trash mobs will wipe out whole guilds(and i think we all know how good the guilds are that can even go there, and yet they still get horribly wiped on multiple pulls) so yeah use it here, but no they aren't gonna hunt here no matter how many AA's they got

I like the rest of the stats, but Rendael's right. This thing is situational. The magic dmg makes it a 15dmg if the save fails, but it becomes a 65/40 against Greater Akheva. That to me says one would be best to use it in Vex Thal. Unless they're putting more Greater Akheva into PoP.

So what would this bane damage work against? Anything in Akheva / Vex Thal, or just certain mobs such as Akheva / Vex Thal shades, things with Akheva in their name?

This surely is a very situational weapon. Not your every day exp weapon you would use.

Pretty sure "robes" are not tagged as Akhevans. I believe only the four-armed types are. Also, you probably only find *Greater* Akhevans in Vex Thal (not like those crappy Lesser Akhevan guys, who live in boathouses and probably drink beer and watch TV and cat-call to women passing by).

in Vex Thal robes (shades) are akhevans and so are four-armed.
