From what I know of the other classes' epic you CANNOT multiquest them, unfortunately. Although i haven't confirmed it for WAR epic it has been confirmed on the pally, ranger, and necro epics so i assume it is true for all of them. Mosly because, in theory if you multiquested this it could be done at very low level with the help of all your high level friends. Something VI probly doesnt want.

Just wanted to know if it is possible to get the jeweled dragon head hilt, the ancient sword blade, and turn them both in to get the sword of tactics or do you have to do all of the quest?

PenguinLad... you have to do all of the quest.

Unlike the Ranger epic where you get 2 swords 1 at a time, the Warrior epic reward is a 2hs weapon ( However, the triggered property of the 2hs weapon is to convert it into 2 seperate 1hs weapons. The 1hs weapons cannot be quested for individually.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 13 2001 at 4:53 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) just read all the post here, and realized I wasted 20 minutes of my life... I'm going to get the weapon for myself and see what it does

The proc on this item DOES NOT change it into 2 1hs weapons. That would be stupid, everytime it procc'd you'd have no weapon in your hand. The proc raises your ac, atk, and dex (About the same amount +ac/atk as the blade of strategy lowers it). To get the Jagged Blade of War, you put both blades in a scabbard and hit "combine", the scabbard is obtained in the course of the quest.

Thanks you and good night

Ah, one more thing. To get the two blades again, you put the JBoW in the scabbard and hit combine again.

#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 07 2001 at 10:35 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The only intellegent people i have read here are the people who said that the proc DOES NOT mean that the weapon breaks down to 2 1hs or vise versa, get a damn life if u think that becuz verant would not do that SO SHUT UP!
#Serrin, Posted: Jun 10 2001 at 10:57 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) That's exactly what the weapon does.

From my understanding, there is a red scabberd, which is a two compartment combining container. When the Jagged Blade of War is placed in the scabberd and combined, the Blade of Tactics and the Blade of Strategy appear. When these two blades are placed back in the scabberd and combined, the JBoW appears. I hope this clears some issues.
Effect Of The Epic
# Jun 05 2001 at 9:24 AM Rating: Default
Ummmm, from all the people i have talked to the blade merging/splitting is not part or Rage Of Tallon, it is just a clickable effect, so if you get this item and have 0pts in 2hs, then you can have 2 1hs weapons, and if you 0pts in 1hs you can have a good 2hs weapon. If you use the 2 1hs together they have the same bonusses and effects. Think about it for a second, that would be f*cking retarded if in the middle of a battle your sword Proc'ed and then there were 2.... or 1...
Verant may ***** up sometimes, but they generally know what they are doing

And the effect does a 175-188 DD spell and debuffs the target by 12 AC

#Anonymous, Posted: May 21 2001 at 11:36 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Man O man, you guys really should not post ANYTHING unless you are certain that you know WTF you are talking about. When you assume things, it gets everyone confused and then wrong information is passed on to others and so on. So PLEASE don't say anything if your not absolutely certain that you know what your talking about. =)

#Anonymous, Posted: May 17 2001 at 12:00 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) what the hell are you all babbaling about? how about you do the quest, get the weapon and then you will know what it does. if you are not a warrior this should not mean sh*t to you so shut up, you have your own epics to worry about.

#Anonymous, Posted: May 13 2001 at 8:58 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) have you people actually read about this weapon? You obtain this weapon, and the Blade of Stategy, when completing the Jagged Blade of War quest.. The JBoW is the Epic weapon. it's a 2 hs that when procs, splits into the Blade of Tactics and the Blade of Stategy... both are 1 hs weapons... Later they can be recombined to make the Jagged Blade of War.

Ok budy... you're the idiot. Lets think about this. So, you whip ot your JBoW and start whackin on a baddy. Your weapon procs and uh oh, it flys out of your hand and back into your inventory as 2 1hs weapons... forcing you to either continue use these two swords and equip them, or stuff them in thir container and combine them again, only to have it happen again the next time the sword procs? All the while... whatever you attack has been wailing on you while you fumble with you sword/swords. Does that make a whole lot a sence to you? Like someone said before... Verant may make mistakes, but they generaly know what they're doing. I'm not gonna try to say what the proc is or whatever, because I dont know. But I can tell that that swill you just posted made so little sence that it cant be right, especialy if you had already read the posts from the people who actualy have the sword.

I have my epic so maybe i can be of assistance here. Rage of Tallon is an effect, not a proc. The procing weapon is the main hand one with Rage of Vallon, which is a 100hp dd. The RoT effect is 40dex 12ac and 30attack while weilded. You actually get 10 more attack because of the 10str on the weapon as well. Anyhow, hope that helps ya.

It sounds like no one ever knows WTF they are talkin about when i read any of this crap. I wish someone who really knew WTF they were talking about was convincing enough that i could belive them..... By the way how does one come to get such a weapon....

warrior of the 57th season
#Yoshihuru, Posted: Aug 26 2001 at 10:40 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) That's pathetic. You're level 57 and you don't even know about your epic quest. Besides the fact that you're too dumb to just click on the link to go to the qeust to get the item, you must have played an incredibly boring 57 levels without qeusting, if you even played the character up to there. Not like it's even the best weapon you can get at that level anyway.
He's right
# Apr 02 2001 at 1:22 AM Rating: Decent
It really is a 40 DEX, 30 ATK, 12 AC buff.
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 29 2001 at 5:34 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) As mentioned befor i find this debate quite interesting and i plan on coming back
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 15 2001 at 3:02 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I really have no idea what the effect does. It is somewhat humorous to see the sheer number of differing ideas people have though.

# May 26 2001 at 8:47 PM Rating: Default
the real effect of this wepon is first, it buffs all stats by 1000. Then debuffs everything in the area 5-7 times. After that the sword splits in two, turns sideways and goes sraight up your candy ***.... Finaly evryone in EQ gets a bit of pun-pie.

I dont remember the bubble gum effect but i "might" be wrong!!
