Read the full thread for lots of pricing history, no-EQ lore theory-crafting, a particular itemization debates circa early 2000s...

Need confirmation in modern times:

-"You will find this item in the crypt in Old sebils off a skeletal harbringer .. its in the South West crypt room .. you'll need to go past the scarab room to get here and kill a few 50th lvl frogloks too. there is a door in the pyrmid you'll need to bring a mid 50s rogue to pick in order to get into the crypt."

New item window pic added.

It dropped in a crypt group on Agnarr progression server months ago (just got to Luclin now) but I didn't get around to cleaning out some of my screenshots until today. Didn't record the NPC, but likely as it always was.

Which would be best:

1.) P: Wu's Trance S: KD
2.) P: KD S: Wu's Trance
3.) P: KD S: KD
4.) P: Wu's Trance S: Wu's Trance

Thanks for your help in making my big purchase. :D

what level is the monk they are for?if it is a 35 monk or higher the 1st suggestion is best but if it is a lower than 35 monk the 3rd or 2nd suggestion is better but personally i would buy a centi warhammer and a trance stick and have trance stick in primary and hammer in secondary and you will hit awesome

This has a better ratio than Centi Warhammer, and wieghts 1/5 as much. Why would a MONK possibly want to wield a 5 weight anchor in their offhand, when they can have this.

My monk alt (lvl 25 atm) has KD and Etched steel baton (same ratio). This is an awesome combo, and one of the best you can get until the damage bonuses kick in.

I plan to keep this combo until I get near level 40, then upgrade primary to some stewart ritual claws, unless i can afford something better by then, like Zekhas katar, or similar.

They now look like horns in inventory instead of a leg chopper, so the outside appearance is the same as inventory.

Im a 27 Iksar Monk holding these and CoT. I was wondering which is better, CoT in Main and KD in Off or KD in main CoT in off.

I have a Goranga spiked club, and a wus stick ATM. I want to get to get a KD now this is were the question comes in. IS it a good idea to put the Wu's stick in Primary ( cause fast) and KD in secondary or should i keep it the same?

thx for all help

IMO opinion Wu's sticks are crap weapons. Sell wu's and try and get a SoS for off hand. If you can't afford SoS get KD for off hand.
price now

I buy 2 KD for 3k
# May 30 2002 at 12:12 AM Rating: Default
The KD definitely has a better damage ratio. My monk had a DEX of 150 and even when the Wu's procced fairly often for me, I found that mobs died faster when I used the KD rather than the Wu's Trance Stick.

If you get a chance, pickup a no drop Goranga Spiked Club in Maiden's Eye and use that with a KD in off-hand. Awesome damage if you aren't super rich.

You can pickup a KD now for like 2K.

Depends... If you want an offhand weapon KD... the proc is fairly rare on the Wustaff and it hits too fast for an offhand in my opinion. if you get on a mob with a DS you'll beat yourself to death.

Primary Wu is better. Lower Delay in late game means more times DMG bonus is added. I would however suggest a Jade mace as it is just plain better if you have the cash. and Aggro is lower in case you do proc with Wu staff

its way too high price for its class specific and zero stats additions. well i know that centi longsword dont fit monk but come to think of it its 14 27 with 8str and only for 2K its way better. i hope they lower this one for 1K or 1500 even.

It is not far to compare this to a Centi LS...however think of the no drop Goranga Spiked Club. It is 12 23 with ac and str. The club is so easy to get I won't even bother getting a KD.

KD's are *much* rarer and harder to get then centi stuff .... the reason centi stuff is so cheap, it that is drops like candy in Maiden's eye and Akhevah.

I've seen them going for about 2k on Karana lately, though you often have to wait around to get that price. People will still pay 3-4k for them whether they're worth it or not.
BST to? Soon I hope.

Faction isn't even that hard to raise. I'm an Iksar Monk and went to Crush Bone at lvl 6, (not realziing that FoB was WAY better), and by the time I was lvl 10 I wasn't kos to Kelethin, Felwithe, or Kaladim. Then I went to Qeynos and made un-kos there by the time I was 15. Iksars can Forage for there food so you dont need to buy any, and as a Monk there is no need to Bank anyways seeing as how we can only keep Gold and Plat, which people will trade gold for plat almost always.
Everyone thinks Iksar are so hard to be, and they are a bit harder but when you get FD, kos is hardly a problem. I can Bank in NFP by running to the bank from the sewers and FDing in the bank, before the guards catch up.
I just dont see how a Human can "Chuckle" or whatever at an Iksar because the human took the easy way...

2.0 ratio is good. 14 28 is a bad example of 2.0 ratio and it is my opinion that monks should use faster 1hb. one more thing, why do they look like a piecer and have a sword as the inventory icon? i mean wtf thats stupid in a way~ kd icon shoulda stuck to that uber rogue piercer whoms name i forgot. blah narg shmelflhksaf
