i gated in to iceclad and was headed to ToFS when i saw an /ooc of a lvl 52 ranger saying he needed one other to kill an elder spearguard gnoll which he had on track. He said it conned blue to him. Me being a 56 wiz teamed up with him an easily killed the gnoll. He dropped the Spear of Winter. He gave the spear to me since i helped him. At first i thought it was nothing more than vendor loot, being that the weap showed only 1 charge of spirit strike on it. Gave to my war who is lvl 48, turns out it is an unlimited proc effect of 81dd cold based. And being a 1h piercer with this proc it turns out to be a pretty decent weapon. I use it all the time now, was gonna sell it but not now :D. Very happy with it..
Info plz

If someone has useful info on this item plz post here answers to my questions.

1)If it is a result of a quest plz post who to talk to and items needed.

2)If it does in fact drop off a certain creature here, plz post the exact mob and where it spawns.

I may be asking for it to be handed to me on a silver platter but i do not have tracking ability for the supposed elite gnoll. And i have tried doing it as a quest and gottten nothing for my hours of effort so plz help here and post full info that can be useful to the rest of us.

The proc does not do 81 damage until level 36.. at level 14 it only does around 60 damage with a point gained every level until it stops at 81 (according to the information the spirit strike spell). Too bad this thing doesn't start procing until later..

Basically what I posted was the info on the spirit strike spell... it is a level 14 shaman spell that starts at 60 dmg and maxes out at 81 dmg at level 36.. I was giving this information on the supposition that the effect might follow the same dmg range. So that at level 30 if it starts procing it won't be 81 dmg, it'll be 75 dmg. Once you are level 36 the effect will be doing it's max damage of 81.. I was not saying that it started procing at 14 (though that would be nice)

LMAO! Ever thought maybe it has a level requirement before this item proc? Like most weapons do.

That is why Kenwoodx said "Too bad this thing doesn't start procing until later.. "

This weapon is the best 1h piercing I have at the moment. It is a great backstabbing spear and I'm only lv 51 on back stab. I'm stabbing for 51dmg now. Later on it has an unlimited proc called "Spirit Strike" at lv 30 to 35. It procs for about 80 to 81 dmg. Since i am only lv 15 I can't proc yet, but I notice that it tries to proc all the time infront of an npc. If you don't have this weapon or need a better 1h piercing weapon, look into this one.
Good luck to you all!!!!!!

This spear procs for 75 points of damage and did so 3 times during a 60 second duel with another PC. The spear procs somewhere from level 30 to 35, I am not sure of exactly what level though. I loaned it to a level 35 and it worked for him but does not proc for me at level 29.

sweet i am killin gnolls!
BS this is not quest I have it
# Jan 13 2001 at 6:58 PM Rating: Default
BS this is not part of the quest. I have this. It is carried as a rare drop of some of the gnolls. I got one simply by ruiening my faction with the gnolls by killing them. Its a nice wepon and the spirit strike is a proc not charged like the wepon shows. If you have one a Gm will change it out for the one not showing the charges but I opted to not trade mine in for the novilty. I am on ECI Dainnes if you want to see it.
trading it in?

This is the gnoll quest weapon.

100' rope
Runed totem staff
RE: Quest
# Jan 28 2001 at 6:01 AM Rating: Default
Where do you get the rope? Is that the one you get from the gnomes in Iceclad? Also, if that is the required rope, where do you get the beard to give them? I tried the woven frost giant beard I go off the giants in GD and got no response to it. I have heard that there is another beard that has no stats. Any input?
