+20. This dropped off a royal guard last night, no idea why but he had it equipped going into the fight and its better than fine steel. *shrug*

I just got one for 200pp on veeshan server. At lvl 20 I hit for about 60pts of damage. Its kinda slow though cause I have no haste item and can't afford one yet, maybe one day.. Btw the pic on the item is wrong, its probably an old pic, it has a similar logo like the sword of skyfire. The stats are still correct though.

The Argent is my first Really Hard hitter... and at lvl 29, I hit regularly in the 70's with it.. the FBSS helps with the delay... BUT I'm pulling Taunt from EVERY WARRIOR that I've grouped with including a "Twinked" Gnome that was 4 levels higher than me.....! When I switch back to my GhoulBane and Tsunami shield I loose the taunt...
It's gotta be the weapon! BTW My hardest strike to date is 97 according to my log parser! Why would anyone wanna be anything but a Pally... We have so **** Much Fun!
There are 2 kinds of spurs Amigo! Those that come in by the window... and those that come in thru the door.

Well, on Seventh Hammer, the bazaar has driven prices way down, and I have been getting items much cheaper than I previously thought imaginable. I got this for 350pp a few days back from a PC in the bazaar. A few days later I got an Arbitors and have been using that instead. Hits for slightly less, but quicker. The Argent is good hitwise, but very slow. At 37 I was regularly hitting in the 90s and 100s.

I picked one of these up yesterday for 250pp. The one I have has no mana, and looks like a Runic Carver/shieldstorm, rather than a GJBS. Are these stats old, or is mine old? It doesn't bother me none too much, seeing I'm a warrior an all so mana wouldn't be of much use. Just curious.....

These have become next to worthless on Luclin server for some reason. Picked on up for 300pp last night after I saw a guy trying to sell it at that price for 20 min with no takers. Will go in the guild bank for the next MA that doesnt want to draw aggro and still put out good damage.

Well, I was lucky to get this sword from a great friend. He is sort of regretting it right now, because he didn't get to really try it out first. If anyone has one for sell on the Mithaniel Marr server please get a hold of him. He goes by the following names:

I just got a new spell called Instrument of Nife. It makes my weapon proc against the undead for 243 pts of damage. I am a lvl 30 paly hitting for average of 80 to 90 pts and getting single blows up to at this point for 105. If your a paly you'll eventually get a haste spell for 25% that will turn this bad boy into a 33 37 killing machine. I hope you all have as good a luck with yours as I have had with mine.

bought one today for my warrior in EC today 28/4/02. was being sold for 2k obo, I was more than a little excited thinking I'd got a mega bargin(I'd been scanning and had it in my mind that this was an Ardent PROTECTOR much more expensive!!) anyway I logged quickly to check and found it was'nt what I thought it was. However I did want a to work my 2HS and thought this was a good weapon to use, I also really liked the Graphic. However when i got this up in my trade window it looked nothing like the graphic above. MMMM!!<thinks> prolly looks like graphic when equipped, ended up paying 1800pp not a bad buy when all said and done, only disappointment was that when equipped it does'nt look like the graphic above, just looks like a run of the mill 2HS!! with my FBSS I deal out death in big numbers so I ain't really complaining just thought you'd want to know.)
Got nothin' to say just wanna eat my cake!

Hmm, not a bad little sword i guess, friend gave it to me, never used it. My 2hs is 200, str at 130, most ive hit for was 167 that ive seen. Has 14dmg bonus at lvl 42 on it. Dont use it much, got an FBSS and Velium Battle Axe 2hs, i usually whail in the 110's or so consistant. Argent defender kinda works odd, sometimes can hit a huge hit, not often, others just a 40 to 80 range, i do better with the velium axe by far though, just my 2cp

This item is now a random drop in Chardok (versus dropping off the Overking). With the changes they recently made, many/most royal mob (king/queen/prince) items drop randomly in the zone.

The royals now have completely new loot.

This sword dropped off a normal sarnak mob in the tunnel outside of the slave cave and captains room.

Was in EC, some guy auctioned that he wanted to buy a Froggy Crown, and was trading a 'bag of warrior stuff'. I sent him a tell, and he came over and showed me the bag. After ten seconds, I decided to trade.

He got: Froggy Crown
I got: Ry'gorr Chain Coif, Cougar Claw Earring x 2, Argent Defender, Jarsath Trident, Sebilite Scale Gorget and Cloak

Hmm...I made out pretty well, I think, considering I bought the crown for 1k....hope he likes the crown. = )

My pally didn't start practicing my 2hs till in his late 20's...ouch LOL can't remember what my skill in 2hs is at...doh only paid 500pp to a wiz who couldn't get rid of it and needed pp pretty badly. I'm so happy :) with my sword...I've been tempted to sell it for 3-5kpp or higher to buy better armor, but I can't stop drooling over the dual attack hits of 90+pts of damage...LOL ;) heheheheeh...until I ever get around to my doing my soulfire quest and the'll probly see me running around with this Runic Carver lookalike...whacking at baddies like a kid in a candystore...I rarely use my gb and shield in unrest or anywhere else for that matter...My miss/hit ratio is okay compared to the overall damage. :) just my 2cp

I just got a what I see as a very sweet deal. I traded a SSoY (Yak) straight up for one of these. Since my Iksar SK seems to be better suited to 2hs, I feel like I got a great deal. Right now, he is 19th, so dmg cap is limiting its potential, and I am using a Tower Guard's Blade, since the ratio is better when you factor in the dmg cap. (Max 2hs hit = 29) But as soon as he hits out. Gonna be a big hitter, looks like the torturous raising of the 2hs skill will be worth it.

Hmmmm... im torn. got this on a nice trade and though was sk only.... but to my happy surprize was warrior usable. my 2hs is at 181 at moment so not hitting for what I could with it. i can do more damage with wurmslayer and yak or my engulfing darkenss sword (never remember name). I dont have an fbss yet, so it seems a bit slower than what i am used to. might hold onto it till i get one then try it again.

average hit on a dorf in bb was around 88-98 with up to 135 i think now and then. think my str is around 191 or so prob.

looks like a runic carver and is a bit of over kill when running through gf and saving newbies with a 120 hit on a pawn, hehe.

You start to get a dmg bonus at lvl 28 I think, maybe lvl 29 before it shows up. No cap, just no bonus. two hander with over 40 dly recieves quite a nice dmg bonus I believe

> out any misunderstandings.

G'day all,

Sorry to burst your bubble but it really starts at 28 :)

dmg bonus=(lvl-25)/3 for 1 handed weapons/arrows etc, (lvl-25)/3x2 for 2 handed weapons,
and add an additionnal +5 bonus for slow 2 handed weapons (delay>45 I think).

I used to whack mobs with an Enchanted Fine Steel ******* Sword (20/42 +7STR) until I got an Argent Defender yesterday in a trade with a kind 53 wiz (Hagardelest,thanks mate :) for merely 700PP (from wooly mammoth tusks) and a Whip of Strangulation given to me in my early levels by a Gravelord friend of mine.

I now sometimes double for up to 200-210 hps ! Not too bad for a weak (115 STR self buffed) woodie ranger huh ? WOOT !
