I feel like the graphics of 2.0's aren't as kool as they could be. 1.0's almost always look better in my opinion. The graphics of this weapon looks too similar to an Elaborate Defiant Claymore if you ask me.

I might be wrong but i believe still highest damage weapon in eq.
Add Worked Granite of Sundering (+ 5 Damage) (GoD: Tacvi)
Add Nightbane Shard of the Ancients (+4 More Damage) (DoDH: DPoB)
Totals out to 111 Damage (+ 1 Magic) = 112 Damage total.

With 45% Worn haste and Valor of Marr (25% Haste) = (70% Total)
Turns it into 112/23.52
With 45% Worn and Krag Beast Queen Belt (50% Haste = 95% Total
Turns it into 112/20.51
This is Best Self Buffed. I did Exclude Over-Haste. Max is another 10% Haste.

Now key in Enchanter Haste + Bards Overhaste :)

Better then any TSS I have seen so far.

Speaking of. My friend linked me a New Tss Damage Aug. I can't really
remember the exact number but its somewhere around 8 Damage.
2 Handed Only. With this you would be at a base damage of
113 with the Paladin 2.0

make sure you remove your old augments on your 1.5... or else clicking combine for the final 2.0 combine eats up your augment!

+4 damage from the Epic Augment quest, so 106.. then, I'm not knowledgable on 2HS damage augs, but I know that the end guy for GoD dropped a +5 one (and so I'm assuming there's better now), but that even puts it up to 111.. and maybe the other aug slot can even get a damage bonus? But, in any case, I know this can easily get to at least 111 base damage!

I'd use my Ture sword and AM shield over this for tanking any anything challenging day. Shields up your AC cap. Add in Shield Block and those nifty group heal procs and it's teh win. Actually, I figure that using that combo over this one probably nets about 40% more effective tanking anyhow. It's pretty good when you're not OT'ing something though....although I would rather just about any other class get their globe first before me.

I use my shield of the lightning lord and sword of forgotten faith to tank as well, but this is by far my favorite weapon. Usually have to tank maybe 2/3 mobs a night on a busy night, so i have my 2hander equipped 90% of the time. Lays a much greater hurting than my ture 1hs, useful for the 90% of the time im not tanking lol. Also, i spend my daily lesson soloing in wos usually, and i use my epic for this as well. cuts the mobs lifespan in half and the clicky almost makes me feel like im cheating. Not to mention its just so damn cool looking, i have it equipped when im just hanging around in pok. By far my prized posession, my epic 2.0)

Are you sure that this "Slot 5" isn't the result of the Epic Augment quest?

As far as I know, this quest is unsolved, but this extra slot was to be the reward for it.
OMG you need to ....

PUT SOME EFFORT INTO YOUR AA skills if your worried about 2hs and bash....note your class aa's for 6 aa you get 2hs bash...and later more aa's give ya improved dmg from bash with 2hs....lots of aa's are spendable for weapons skill upgrades with 2hs ONLY!!....more research yields greater rewards!......./salute

I actually spent the time to figure the DPS ratio of all the hybrid/melee 2.0 epics with the lvl 70 dmg bonus and it turns out this is 2nd only to the berserker epic. I didn't figure in dual wield though, which could be why warriors are dead last.

only damage paladins CAN do is from their weapon, that is all. SK's got lifetaps/nukes/dots to increase damage output. warriors have so many reasons why they outdamage knights (at least paladins) anyday : innate higher weapon skill and offense caps, rampage, flurries, Ambidexterity (improved dual wield), ferocity (improved double attack), offensive disciplines, etc. knights get none of these abilities.

You may be able to use Bash with this,but I understand what you mean....I prefer my Pally to use a shield and 1HS....it just seems more natural. And he looks better that way,too. I don't understand SOE's logic in giving Paladins so many 2Handers....even the Newbie Quest weapon(from newbie armor quests) is a 2Hander. Warriors can dual-wield,so that doesn't make sense either. Berserkers use 2HS so it makes sense for them to use something like this(their Epic 2.0 is also nice tho :-) ).
Then again,it would be awesome if the Epic 2.0 was actually a Shield with a Bash proc LOL("You Bash the 'insert mob name' for 12500 points of damage" hehe) and a Spell Shield (100 points per hit)....but I guess I like to dream....

With Epic 1.0 you can do BASH without the aa.

Not sure if it works with epic 1.5 and/or epic 2.0.

Not that it makes any huge difference, or is relevant to this discussion at all... but 2 hand bash sucks... except for stunning mobs occasionally, 2hb wont do nearly the dmg bash with a shield will... max bash with a 2 hander for me is about 50, with a shield around 160...

If you're doing 51 dps with this sword do you really care if you no longer have that extra 110 bash dmg?

Well, considering you can get this i'm sure you'll have all of your offensive AA's trained. This sword pulls about 250 to 300 dps. Plus paladins get bash AAs that increase the damage you do with bash.
This weapon is about dps for paladins. As you can see the hp and mana licks a piece, considering you can get Blade of Forgotten Faith which is 300+ hp and a shield with 300+ hp no problem.
SoE needs to upgrade the hp/mana, possibly the effect. The effect is barely an upgrade from the 1.5.

I'm a little confused. One effect increases healing effectiveness while the other increases healing. Can anyone explain the difference pls? Do they both increase the amount healed by healing spells?

EDIT: NM... Just got my answer by looking at the ss of the weapon. Sorry about that. =(

RE: Healing Effectiveness
# Jan 13 2005 at 9:06 PM Rating: Decent
ok what they are saying here... on increases how much you can heal for... ex.. you heal for 300 hp normally, now you can heal for 350ish. (just example not correct math)... that is touch of ablution...

flames of the valiant, when someone else heals you, ex a cleric, their healing increases when they heal you... so whaat would normally heal you for 1000hp, will now heal you for 1150 hp (again not correct math)

hope it helps

#everdays, Posted: Jan 11 2005 at 8:46 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) What you mean out damage look at it a little more =b pally is 102/40 berserkers is 91/33 almost the same in ratio if pally can swing just 1% faster he will outdamage =)thats not considering the damage stats on them. Either way CONGRATZ nice freaking weapons got the pally epic 2.0 link the other day in game on TP server so someone got it freaking sweet!!

Off course the Berzerker 2.0 will out DPS this. Its a Pally weapon, the Pally stands in front of the mob holding its attantion. (Called TANKING!!) where the berzerker has to be one of the group / raid to kill the mob.

Awsome weapon, will be mine one day. Gratzx on getting this.
