This dropped w/ a twin off of Terror today 7/28/12. Still appears to be a fairly nice item though these days it is a tad old. Tunare server currently has sellers w/ it for 10k. Personally I would like to sell it for 20k. But probably wouldn't receive much more then that.

I wonder why C-T uses a wep that procs an anti-undead spell. It's not as if it's going to be of any use against the players trying to take it away from him (except for necro/sk pets).
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

Ah but it will proc against players in skelly form. I had the fabled ghoulbane proc on my sk in skelly form for example when I was going for the drop.

Have this on my now 44 cleric, was at gunthak beach soloing the undead, this hammer rocks there, best proc was 534 with magic dmg focus, i use the glowing stone of expulsion with muram's anger focus.

This place is great for easy soloing xp for a cleric, sitting on my horse i could fight for a long time without running out of mana.
high cost as of july 2007 on EMARR!!!

Yes but its still and has always been my favorite weapon. The name is cool, its rare and it has great stats for pre-planar and even beyond. It has to be 40 for the proc cause my 37 cleric cant use it yet =/ oh and I forgot to mention that I got mine for 500pp and the last one I saw sell was for 20k on Karana :)

Get a Mage to summon you a damage bracer when you use this. The bracer's effect will work on the proc, making it do about 680 damage on average per proc.

My cleric at level 41 can solo even cons in Lower Guk and never run oom, the only mana I need is to heal myself every two or three mobs.

No need to nuke, the hammer takes about 20 to 60 percent of the average mob's life per proc and so far from my math procs about 1 in 12 swings.

This hammer changed my life.

I can finally solo undead without having to worry about insane downtime. I nuke one mob till it dies and then I melee a few (casting celestial healing on myself) until my mana recovers and then I nuke again.

I can handle all 4 spectres at Oasis with KEI. I just sit on the island after I break the camp. I can handle the feerott spectres pretty consistently with KEI. In Lower Guk, I teamed up with a ghoulbane pally and a SK (for snare) and I would dot the mob and head in for melee (I would get aggro quite a bit if I didn't back off for a few seconds after each proc).

It was quite an upgrade to my Dark Ember (there aren't a lot of tradable upgrades to Dark Ember for a Cleric that wants to have a weapon in hand) I am more excited about this item than I was about any other item I have ever owned. The proc simply RULES.

Hmmmm, Valdon, I was wondering what does that guys gear have ANYTHING to do with Dawnfire? Why do people post random things that are not about the subject. Anyways, on to Dawnfire.

I traded for a Dawnfire yesterday, and I wanted to know what level it starts to proc. I have heard things from 40-50, anybody know the exact level it procs at? Thanks

A Dawnfire was among my early equipment :) It's a nice weapon and procs fairly often. Enough that with a haste item clerics can melee in Lguk for fun and exp if they're of the level.

The proc begins at lvl 40 (I think). They aren't sold very often on Povar, but if they are, I'd imagine they're still a nice buy if you don't have an epic or SoL 1hb with similar stats.

Good luck.

My wife got this mace last night off of fright. it was procing banish undead for her. not a bad mace. wis and the saves are a plus, even though her wis is around 214 before this item.

Since the advent of SoL, Everquest calculates mana from wisdom and int different after 200. While I do not believe the impact is as great as it is pre-200, people who have raised their Int or Wis above the 200 mark should be seeing significant increases in total mana as opposed to pre-Luclin mana.

I have Dawnfire. The effect is a proc that takes effect during melee with undead. You must be at least 49 in order for the proc to take effect.

DawnFire procs at level 40.

I had one at level 34 and it started procing promptly upon reaching 40.

Hate to say it, but I've had this morning star forever, and for as long as I've had it, I've never recived a message that told me "You Feel Rejuvinated." I know I got my weapon off of good ole Caz, so maybe it all depends on who you got it from? If so, then I need another one...

Rejuvenation -

You were in Lesser Fay when you saw that message.
There are a few other messages that you can see too.

The effects have nothing to do with this weapon, but rather the happenings that are going on in LF.

More details are on Sunmoon's ranger glade site.
# Jun 18 2001 at 6:04 PM Rating: Default
Hmmm, since Ive started wielding this mace, I get a message like ...: " you feel rejuvenated".

The good thing about this is, that one the message comes, I get 500 hp and 500 mana back, roughly.

Yeah, not fooling you off here, and I would really like to hear if anyone else wields this weapon and gets that message.

btw, dropped of Golem in Fear.

Wrong weapon btw. I think you're referring to Blackstar possibly. But since I don't have one of those I can't say for sure.

I did get this item in Fear, but I did not get it from Cazic Thule. It dropped off of one of the mobs we killed leading up to the Golem Terror. Not sure which mob, but it was not one of the Uber Mobs.

Actually unless this has been changed at some point (and I saw one last time I was up there since we got the killing blow in) This is cleric only (Like the picture states /rofl) Although as a druid I would have loved to have it but as you can see by the proc it isn't very druidish.
