We had a problem with Item Collector a while back where it didn't always properly recognize evolving items. Now we're just waiting for someone to re-upload these, and they should show up properly here.

It is red because you have deactivated the evolution itself, whether to this item in specific or to all evolving items in general. Check your inventory screen, evolution tab.

Just finished evolving mine, thought I would state how long it took. When I got it, I had just hit lvl 66 and had 79 AA's. It finished at 80% into 71 with 162 AA's. (8 of those were from dain runs and didn't move the sword.) I looted it on July 6th, and it wrapped on July 30th. I didn't log played hours though. I just armed it as soon as I got it, and it stayed in my primary hand the whole time.

This very morning, I saw this offered in /ooc for 45k. Fully leveled, and tradeable. And that is on Maelin Starpyre which it is rumored is one of the more over priced servers. So from 1 million about a little over a year ago, to almost vendor fodder now. Wow, how times change. Sony covers that issue though, as the box or some of the documentation says, "Game Play May Change With Time", or something to that effect.

When i am Duoing with my shaman and ranger in Icefall I get 1% for every kill of the Bears (mostly darkblue) down by the river and the Large Mammoths (mostly darkblue), I did spiders and most if not all were yellow and i was getting 2% per kill and the spiders have significantly less hip points than the bears and the mammoths, nonetheless the spiders if where its at if you can get there and its not camped.

I dont think it makes a difference if you melee with it, i use arrows all the time, with it in my main hand.

Best way I found to level this was in nadox, even at level 71 I was getting 5% per kite.

Anyway, you need entrap, hail of arrows.

Go to the first luggald cave (just over the bridge with the lava river), and then proceed to entrap everything in the main room, bunch em up nice and tightly, then just kite as normal, except use hail of arrows to hit all mobs.

To adjust your aim just get a safe distance, fire a single arrow using range attack key (not autofire), this will line you up, when mobs are near enough to hit, let rip with HoA. Rinse and repeat until they all die.

You can then pull the corner rooms and do the same thing.

I was getting approx 4 - 6% xp for the sword on level 6/7.

I find that the best xp I've recieved for this item has been in LDONS
I did the GE solo and found it takes longer there.

I think the xp is based on number of kills not the value of the xp.
Ldons let you kill 50 mobs in less then an hour

I recieved 20% in an hour and a half in everfrost yesterday. Pretty Sick..

Just to clarify, since there are several questions on this.

The blade is a sword at all levels. It is tradeable at all times (unless aug'ed of course). The graphic changes as you level it also starting at level 3. The best way to get XP for evolving items is now the same as the best way to get AA/reg XP. Get in a good group and grind the toughest mobs you can (in RSS or MPG, the sword gets about 1% per mob).

It is still the best single groupable 1h weapon in the game, and it is BLOODY rare (camped it for 30 hours and saw one drop - drachnid necklace anyone???). There is no glut in the market on the Nameless server as far as I have seen. The first level sells for about 300-400k, the fully leveled version can go for up to 1 million.

Very happy to have mine :),

I have two toons with this sword. One is tradable and one (the earlier one) is not. I have petitioned in game to have the NO TRADE sword replaced with tradable, but the EQ gods will not permit this to happen, even though they acknowledge that the sword is now tradable in game, as far as newer drops.

So original sword was tradable, current sword tradable, but if you got one of the intermediate ones, you are stuck with the NO TRADE version.

If this is the blade of a long dead Werewolf hero why put a dragon on it?

The grasshoppers in fungus grove are pretty good to solo lvl this weapon, that is if they're still blue to you. If you have an awesome geared group killing extremely fast it can go up rather quickly, recieved 40% into lvl 3 within an hour with an awesome group in Arc.

As of 4/21/06 this weapon is fully tradeable at any level.

Due to supply and demand the cost in the bazaar has fallen drastically and their presence has increased greatly.

I'm looking at two for sale in the bazaar right now and neither are attunable. So either they're back to being non-attunable, or else these two are prenerf. Only way to prove one way or the other is either if someone now finds an attunable one, or else if someone had one before they became attubale could contest that his Did change into attunable (ie that there's not two versions of the blade).
RE: NOT Attunable
# Jun 07 2006 at 8:46 PM Rating: Decent
Im pretty sure they become attunable at last level, but not before. This is what I've seen from other evolving objects. Also, once traded it goes down to 0% of current level...i.e. if you level this sword to level 6 with 99% xp, then trade it, they will recieve it at level 6 with 0% xp.

I tried wielding both the Night Sky blade and Full Moon blade. I figured i could level two blades at once. However, i could not transfer the Night Sky blade to my warrior because of the lore restriction. So, even though the name is different, it is still considered the same item.

drops as rare off of a mob in either don, or dod, I don't know for sure which one.

best place to Evolve= GE 1-2 mobs per 1% (solo ungrouped)

Mob must give you exp to count towards evo, ( you must recieve exp from the kill shot)

If you group it will take ALOT longer, 6 person group isn't as bad but better to be alone with potions.

1st lvl looks like fine steel sword.
2nd lvl looks a little better with a gold hilt.
3rd lvl same as 2nd.
4th level looks sorta like great blade of storms, but better and bigger.
5th lvl looks like i'm not sure but its plain silver, wide, and lame looking.
6th lvl same as 5th.
7th lvl looks like the pic posted in this thread.

Fully tradeable with its current lvl of experience from lvls 1-6.

Once it hits lvl 7 AND you zone the graphic will show up. if you remove it once it's 7 and try to RE-equip it it will ask you to attune it, making it NO-DROP. Untill you remove it and try to reequip it it can stay in your hand UN-attuned.

I've also been told bandoliering will allow you to use it at will without attuning, I have NOT confirmed this.

Yes you can use this fully whether you have the expansion or not, does not matter it works.

Looks awsome hits hella hard+ fast and worth every penny any cassual player has to spend to get it.


If you can raid and get better it has little to no value for you people.

This is true. Once you level it up all the way, save your setup with bandolier. If you die, you can bandolier the sword back in your hand without attuning it. This will probably be fixed some day. An alternative is to just deactivate the evolving of the sword when you are in level 6. The level 6 sword is still nice and is droppable.

Note, if you save the level 6 sword with bandolier, you will not be able to swap in the sword once it becomes level 7. You have to save it again when you hit level 7.

Alittle hint about Attunable evolving weapons. If you Bandolier them before they evolve you can bandolier to equip and never attune it.

This will probably change in the future but, for now it is a small boon to the ones that think that attuning these things was a crappy move on SoE's part.

Its attunable and sells for 2.5 million when fully done. Takes approximately 35 hours of straight xping in Griegs end. Nice time to meet new players as you power level them. Kills the boredom. Personally they should up the drop rate and make it NO DROP. If you don't level something like this your self you do not DESERVE IT.

Im 70% into 2nd lvl of this sword and from my expirence u only get xp with kill shot or that is how it seems. I get about 1% per kill solo and grping i might get 1% every 10 kills or so. I am very dedicated to evolving this sword but as MT in every grp i get it is a pain to evolve with such crappy stats to start with. It also seems lvl 2 is going a bit quicker than the lvl 1 and i hope this trend keeps up, although that might just be becuase im weilding a better sword

But i must say anybody that thinks this will be easy to evolve is dead wrong

The sword must be equiped at least 30 seconds prior to the mobs dying to get credit towards evolving the sword.

Well.. I did MPG with it for about 4 or 5 hours killing level 70 mobs almost nonstop and only got like 20 percent. But that was with a full group. It would be interesting to know exactly how the leveling works. For example, can I not use the sword and equip it via bandolier before mob dies and still get full benefit?

Some people are ragging on the sword but I think it is pretty cool if you are not in a big guild but still want a nice item. You just have to work a little harder for it.

# Oct 01 2005 at 9:58 AM Rating: Decent
I spent about 4 hours killing dark blues at the King camp in Droga with this sword in my secondary slot. Got 40% in the first level. Don't know if that is typical. Maybe it would be faster in primary, or if I was killing mobs closer to even or higher.
Was grouped with a couple level 65s at the time.
Anyone else have some input to add?

Lui

p.s. Paid 230Kp btw. Mostly willing to pay that much because was not attunable. Notice the item look sucks at lowest level. Basic rusty sword graphic, but that the final result icon looks more like the Ranger epic 1.5. REALLY hoping the item graphic improves to something decent. Anyone know?

PSS. At full evolved now, and just wanted to add the looks are pretty sweet, although not much like the epic 1.5 as I thought at first. Blade is quite dark, and the quillions look like the skull of some long nose creature with horns. Light blue gem set in the end of the hilt. Maybe someday Ill figure out how to add a picture here...

LLBBL, I think you are way off on this. This is a great weapon for a casual non raiding player. Just a little exping a week and you would max it out in a matter of a few months. With a ratio on par with the epic 1.5s for most classes listed which requires a small raid to complete, id say this weapon is just what the casual players asked for. Not to mention it has a great DPS/aggro proc. Sure it will take a few months to evolve it, but once its maxed its a great weapon for not being in a guild to get it. These weapons and DoN tradeable crystals are the progression of LDoNs for casuals. Great answer to the casual players gear gap imo.

Now if SoE would just have more of them it would be great.
