#GanXsta, Posted: Nov 23 2004 at 5:28 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) listen up junior, before you post you should make sure your facts are right, the staffs got no level requirement, the proc does but the proc has always been required lvl of 45, it just says it now, you can equip this **** at any level sunny boy.

I just bought this for 3K; however I am a lvl 29 necro. A couple said it procs at lvl 45. Does that mean the knockback won't work unless in the hands of a 45+ ??

Nice stats on weapon, but who is actually going to use it apart from shaman and beastlord for actual melee. Most of the time the other classes
will simply med after a certain level, including shamans. My lvl 51 shaman no longer can afford to melee, need mana to keep people buffed and healed.
And my slow and attacking it will cause a big aggro. However nice toy!!!

I have been wanting one of these after I saw one before Christmas selling for 18K. that was more cash than I had and he would not take any of the stuff I had in trade. A few days later I managed to sell some of my loot, so I gave the seller a tell but he said he had already traded it for a Fungi Tunic.

I got lucky though and I got one for less than 13K last week. I luv it. I had to give up a few points of int to use it but the 41 points of resists have cleared a few slots for other stuff in my raid gear. And the knockback effect is a lot of fun when playing around.

Got one of these, just wondering how much its worth to people now on ALL servers, since the pricing data is rather old here :)

If you are interested in buying it, will sell for a considerably lower price than the PC up at the top :)

As a necro i do solo a lot and having a good wpn is important, with the stats on this baby it more than makes up for not having two hand held int items. As well with the 36% haste on my tolapumj robe the dmg/dly ratio is **** good. Guess i have to sell my stein and book of obulous now. Thats my two cents anyway.
great fun with friends too...
# Oct 08 2001 at 8:52 AM Rating: Default
I got this staff recently and although its really not too great to use for general melee it can be real fun if ya duel in the right spots.... try it when jumping from PoS or try it when dueling in cobalt scar with your friends back to the water sends em flyin waaaaaaay out there =)

Got mine this weekend. Took some people down there to get some drops. Got some boots, and about 9 weapons. Personally I'm using it for overall stats and saves, with my dragon mask my unbuffed int is like 227. Plus it gives 8cha when is good for my enchanter. Overall if you add up the total stats and saves, its very sweet, even if you just carry it around for saves (would be a waste).

Int casters might sell this either because they got two items with more int or they have there epics they would like to wield, except for mages since they dont get an epic weapon, they can an epic spell. If the price is right and you can sell it for about 25k or so and then you can buy a glowing black stone with 9int 10sv magic for 10k or less and pocket the rest or use it to equip one of your lower characters. but then again this have nice resists too. There are many different opinions on why to keep it and why to sell it.

Mages epic is a spell, but it summons a weapon which is not NO RENT that has one charge of the pet summoning (best pet in the game). Once you use the use the charge, you get rid of your epic (destroying an epic, hehe) and summon another one.

It is a weapon and is wielded like one and should be called one for all intents and purposes, it's just a spell because, well, it's a mage and if you follow the story line of the epic, you're looking for the way to summon the Power of the Core (or something like that).

Anyways, I'd take the mage epic over this, though this is very nice :)

This is a really nice item for int caster. I use one myself. For all of you who claim this item is crap, apparently you don't have any clue how important your resistances are during raids. Who cares if this staff is 2hb? The fact that this staff not only provides increases to every single resistance, but it also adds 14 int as well as mana, AC, hps, and pluses to all other stats, makes it a wonderful item that is pretty hard to beat for int caster. But that's not enough. Don't forget the knockback proc. For those of you who would most certainly try to flame, no I don't melee with it most of the time. But occasionally I do use the knockback proc to help position a mob that is dangerously close to causing adds or falling off a ledge. It can come quite in handy. About time there was a 2hb weapon for casters that is actually worth using =) That is my two copper. Don't spend it all in one place =)
It's great
# Jun 09 2001 at 3:12 AM Rating: Default
I got one as a gift from a friend of mine, it is great for necro's it gets the mob off ya long enough for you to re-fear, or re-dark. I like it. personally.
Price = 1k on MT

Dragon Necropolis has pretty much about 8 creatues b4 u get to the chetari highway (as we call it). There is a Ramp with a beattle trap. Once u go down this ramp and kill these weak beattles there is a flat spot the goes down once again to the right. Make your groups here and begin pulling. At the bottom of the 2nd ramp is a "highway" in a sense. All kinds of mobs wonder by here. If u get a monk or GOOD sk puller you can pull rats and bats mainly all day. Dustshapers are semi rare, but they do come by. a Tracker is also nice so u know if any of the nicer mobs are up. BUt u can do this with one good group or 2 decent groups. I would say minimum lvl to attain would be 50. Simply because getting to DN you must run through WW which is a ***** with Mraaka. She can see through invis and basically has no delay. hits for about 285 and wanders past DN zone frequentyl. so geting to DN is HARD but once inside there is a VAST area to get set up.
BTW you CANNOT bind in there.
If you are wondering what 8 creatures stand between you and this uber spot.... there are only about 4 if u play it smart. you can invis and go past ALL creatures if u DO NOT step on piles of bones. If you step on bones you spring a trap the brings out a lvl 55 dragon construct. he can see through EVERYTHING but FD. he is not too tough but is a pain in the *** to get by if u only have 1 group. If you play it safe and have a good guide you can easily get this item and MANY MANY more.

It is really fun to get a friend with one and duel with them- it's like a roller coaster ride. I have one myself- what a blast!
Why would anyone want it?
# Apr 22 2001 at 6:10 PM Rating: Default
I'm a 55 necro and i'd kill to have it just for the resists.

I have more than enough INT junk for other inventory slots that i can easily make up for almost any held items or combo of held items.

I can get myself up to 249 INT if i wear it all, and that's with a crappy Orobe too. Never bothered to get a better robe since i have enchanted tier'dal tunic and it looks good. :)

It's even easier to use this thing since it has 14 INT of it's own, besides all the stats it gives.
RE: Why would anyone want it?
# Apr 22 2001 at 6:25 PM Rating: Default
The effect would help a necro out too. Knockback might give a necro a chance to feign, gate, or cast fear without interuptions, or maybe a wizard could get a root cast before it got back to whoopin' his a$$.

Pure casters aint supposed to melee, but if you're getting beat on, you have 3 choices, fight, run, or die. If ya run you might train. If you fight you might get lucky, especially with this item. If you die, well, you die.
Level to Use?
# Apr 15 2001 at 10:52 AM Rating: Default
It is not a fake item, because Kalor is trying to sell my 36 chanter it. I only have 20-25k at the moment and he says he turned down 30k (This is Saryrn where everything is less than half of list price). What I want to know is what lvl can use its effect and do you have to be a certain lvl to equip it? Would seem sumb to spend money on a weapon I can't use yet.
# Apr 15 2001 at 4:49 AM Rating: Default
I just looted this staff. I'm 55 chanter and I'm gonna use it on dragon/uber mob raids for the saves. I have 225 INT so that isn't a factor.

for those who are wondering exactly what the spell does, well, it sends the target flying.. BIG TIME, a good example of this, is chardok.. you know the sarnaks who are near the bridge? name starts with an A I believe.. it's the same spell *grins*

I too can attest that this is not a fake item. We got it from a rat in DN this week, and I won the roll <g> For those of you who say why would a 56 Magician want this, well, the two items I had in my hands (Black Tome with Silver Runes and a Stein of Moggok) were only +14 INT, so I switched to this staff, lost 20 mana, but gained saves, HP, and AC (and still have 200 INT). I just wish it didn't look like a Staff of Withering :( Of course, when people ask why I'm carrying a Staff of Withering, I show them the staff :)

Obviously some of u are noobies. You THINK it is fake when u truly have no idea. i am a 51st necromancer of the RALLOS ZEK server. Im am in a rather UBER guild and we have "farmed" DN for weeks. This drop is RARE as ****. We got 1 in 7 days! It s NOT fake. Its is only an uber rare drop. Just like the Phase Spider charapace. I believe stats on that are 28ac -3sv fire -2 sv disease and like +* everything else. These items require 2 groups to get. not to tough but RARE as ****.

I have screenshots of this uber weapon. I will post them one of these days. So if u think it is fake you may think how u like. BUT the fact is you are wrong.
