Good grief! Do these still sell for 1K or more on some servers?? I've bought quite a few of these on Innoruuk and The Tribunal. I've never paid over 100 pp for one, and most were significantly less. Friday night, I bought one on The Tribunal for my newest character, a bard. There were six or seven for sale in the Bazaar for under 100 pp; I bought the one priced at 20 pp.

Look to get a Crystalline Short Sword. I think that it is a lil better then the CSS. But then again. I have been called a crack baby before.

BTW the CSS's have been running for about 50-150 on Druzzil Ro, and I have seen vendors sell CSS's i just never checked the price.

I got one for my warrior alt on Fennin Ro server. I paid 18pp for it in Bazaar. I admit, it is a very good weapon for a low level Barb Warrior. Not sure if I will keep it as he sees more seasons.

Incidently, I have a centi-warhammer for my shammy frog...and it is awesome. Right around level 6 or 7 when i bought it for him...I was hitting max dmg with it.

I for one like the Centi line of weapons..

When i played about 8 months ago. I paid 100pp i think. I saw that as a nice deal. people with 10k or so dont really care about a centi ss. bazaar caused a decreese in value i think because its all about competing prices. when ec was the trade city or gfay you could negociate a little more. just my 2 cents.

I've known of this sword since a noob and I've been saving my spare plat for some time...and after I got around 300p I made a trip to the Bazaar and found that they were selling for 600pp to 800pp...so, if anyone on Kane Bayle has a Centi Short Sword send Terein a tell...anyways, I was pretty disapointed!

personally i think that you should spend your money on a nice ry gorr tunic. They are normally around 150-300p on our server (bertoxx) and will last you till around 45 (or you get get my tunic which was 100-200p). I would also go back to kelethin and do some of the newbie armour quests. They have str and sta which are very important and are about 1-3 ac less than banded. I would do the bracers, legs, boots, and gloves. If you dont want better armour than just wait for the prices to go down some because unless you server is over twinked and peeps are will to pay 500p for a centi then i would switch servers.

You're thinking of the Centi LONGsword. (the one that "looks like it rocks").

This item (Centi SHORTsword) just looks like a plain-jane sword.

The shortswords go for 200 to 300 plat
The longswords go for 2000 to 2500 plat

Why? I guess because they're "kewl" looking.
heh. munchkins.....

Anyway, the dly/dmg ratio on the longsword is better. But, worth 8 to 10 times the cost? That is debatable.

I'm guessing he meant the stats look good for the price.

I agree that centi LS are overpriced, but the are better than this in several ways. First, the ratio is better, as you noted. Secont, the stats are higher, with 8 str, and 8 sta, rather than 5. See my post below (comparing this sword to a sporali defenders blade) for why more str and stamina matters. Also, this sword is NOT lore, so you can wield 2 of them. Its also a lot rarer than the shortsword, which factors into the price. Personally, I think the Centi LS is a pretty decent blade, but not worth the current price (2k+ on my server).

Im really not understanding why Sporali's are selling for 50pp-150pp on povar and centi shorts are selling for min 200pp.

anyone think this sword is better than a sporali defenders blade?

well, if you were a warrior, ranger, bard or rogue, you might like this better, since the sporali is Pal/SK only.

Plus sporali has a ratio of 2.176, centi short is 2.083. Since lower ratio is better, centi has the advantage.

Also, once you hit lvl 28, you begin to get a damage bonus on melee classes. As that damage bonus goes up, a faster weapon will outperform a slower one.

Say a lvl 32 pally is looking at these swords. I believe the bonus at 32 is 2, for 1hs. So, the sporali would be essentially a 19 damage, 37 delay weapon 1.95 ratio), while the centi would be 14 dmg, 25 delay (1.79 ratio).

The higher your level, the more the centi outperforms the sporali.

Also, faster weapons mean more taunt, so if your pally/sk is the tank for a grind group, he'll hold aggro better with the centi.

+5 str means higher attack, which means you hit more often, and for more damage.

Last, stamina = more HP, so sword with +5 stamina, is better than sword without +5 stamina

Longer than I intended, but this is why a centi short sword is better than a sporali defender's blade.

Upgrade the armor, unless you are having problems keeping the mobs aggroed on you. IF they stay on you, with your current weaps and taunt, get better armor, with higher ac and more hp/sta on it.

If you can't keep aggro, upgrade your swords.

I am back from vacation a month without eq. First thing I do is find out about the bazaar interface and go there to hang out.
Well, I now have bought a centi ss for 200pp!! A Crustecean Shell BP for 200pp (+15 sta too?? wow), A dented brass mask (ac4 +3 str) 40pp. Crustecean shell shield (ugly as ****, but ac17 +10 sta ****!)
Hurray for the Bazaar! Now if they can keep the lag down there it will be perfect!
Oh yeah and the centi LS I saw there for 2 days ranged from 2kpp-2.5kpp

# Jul 18 2002 at 9:26 AM Rating: Default
Paid 350pp, was so happy that I was getting a sword with the name "Centi" in it, I didn't realize it was the shortsword and not the longsword. Oh well I equipped it and realized, its still cool. So now I have an FBSS (haste), and a centi shortsword in my secondary, and a skyfire in my primary, I hit REAL fast now, usually hit for high 20's to low 40's in that range. add in the call of sky spell that rangers have at my level, 42, and then when I hit 45 and have call of sky casted on myself, then the skyfire procs too, I will be hitting nicely, add in that I am still kicking too, and running an 11 point damage shield. I may not have the tankability of being a warrior, but will be able to do some nice damage, with 2 procs going off randomly, great for interrupting caster mobs. woot !!

PS: Centi kinda cancels out its own weight

adds +5 STR, and the weight 5.5 stone, so in effect it only weighs .5 stone so I wont be asking for someone to zing (restore my stamina) all the time.

You could have 250 str, and if you use a heavy weapon, and don't have stamina over 100, you'll still need that "zing"

Get stamina over 100, and you can fight all day with the stamina bar empty.

The "Black Acks" are a new line of weapons similiar to the Centi line, but can be made by blacksmiths and have a nice proc too. According to the new reports coming in, Lifedraw is the proc on the new Black Acrylia weapons. Not a bad effect; let's hope it doesn't change.

Bl. Acrylia ******* Sword   30  14  +2 magic damage 
Bl. Acrylia Scimitar        22  10  +1 magic damage 
Bl. Acrylia Long Sword      25  12  +2 magic damage
Anyone interested in the Centi-type weapons might also consider the Black Acrylia weapons. If you can aquire some of the components for the recipe, the blacksmith would likely offer you a reduced rate.

I recently bought a Centi SS for 30pp in the Butcherblock Mountains and placed it in my primary slot...with Stormfeather talons in secondary(8dmg/23del)...and my dual weild is now at a healthy 90. Placing a faster weapon in secondary increases the chances of dual weild going up b/c the faster u swing it the faster it goes up. Just my opinion. =)

I picked two up yesterday; one for 350pp and the other for 300. Veeshan's shopping channel is eqsn, and I have been learning the art of the wheel and deal there. I had been given an adamantite bo stick, but it is monk only. I traded it for a Wurmslayer and sold that for 1k. So, I got two SS's and a tidy 350p extra in the bank. Yes, I know the SS is lore; one was for my wife.

Ok, I can get a Centi SS for about 1/3 the price of a Centi LS. Obviously the Centi LS is better if pp is not an issue, but I am thinking of saving the 1K and buying the Centi SS and putting the savings towards a Haste item (FBSS maybe). Any opinions on which is the "best value"???

Think of it this way. If you buy one good weapon, you have one good weapon, but one weapon can only do damage once. If you buy two lesser weapons but can do damage faster in the long run you'll do more damge. I bought my centi SS first and it worked great, and it was cheap enough that I could save up for it fairly easy. If your a ranger like me, centi SS and haste will keep your aggro down, and benefit your group by allowing you to do good damage, and benefit you by not dying. Buy the SS, then a little later on buy the LS. That is what I did and it worked well for me

Faster weapon in Secondary when you are trying to build your Dual Wield skill.

If that's maxed, put the faster weapon in Primary.

The attacks ARE independent, but the better your DW, the more overall damage your going to be able to dish.

Always always always put the fastest weapon in your primary and the best ratio in your offhand.

The delay of the weapons is not linked in anyway. Check boards like http://forums.interealms.com/ranger or any other melee class forums.

You want your primary hand to swing more often as it has a damage bonus. You want your secondary to do as much damage as possible hence the ratio. Unless you are less than about level 50 and have the stamina to use a Wurmslayer. It is primary only and will outdamage almost everything else as your damage bonus isn't big enough to compensate until after level 50... Then for something fast like a lamentation or something.

Use the centi in primary. This allows dual weild to have a chance to work with every swing. Else, it will be every other swing.

Its been tested. They are independant (wield a non-attack primary and you will see 2nd still attack)

You get a dmg bonus PER HIT on the primary. So best to have the FASTEST weapon you can get in primary, and BEST RATIO in 2nd.

My warrior wields a 10/18 in primary and 16/29 in off hand for instance. My Dmg Bonus at 54 is 9, so my primary is a 10+9/18. which does some good dmg :) Hope that helps.

PS. sometimes i wield faster weapon in off hand also, depending on lenght of fight. but in long fights, the better ratio does more dmg. Also, faster weapons have more chances to hit, so if you missing 1/2 the time, prolly don't want a slow weapon... cause each miss essentually doubling your delay..

RE: Correction
# Apr 07 2002 at 1:50 PM Rating: Default

Seconday hand swings independent of Primary hand. As it is each weapon's delay expires, it swings.

So the question is a matter of is a 33% increase in damage worth 20% higher delay (which costs you 20% of your damage bonus which only applies to primary hand).

Using the formulae for monk damage calculations, (so this may not be accurate for other classes and is also based on damage modifiers for 1HB which may be different than 1HS), the 16/30 is better than the 12/25 by 3.5%.

So although conventional wisdom is to go with faster weapon in primary becuase of damage bonus modifier, the significantly better ratio on the 16/30 makes up for this difference.

Runjun,
It is my understanding that in order to have a chance to dual wield on every attack your primary weapon should be slower than you secondary. Therefore use the Jagged in your primary and the Centi in your off hand.
good luck to you.

It doesn't matter to you or the warrior below which hand you equip your weapons in. As long as you get more twinked, it just doesn't matter.

Actually it does matter. Plus I am "twinked" only because higher levels sell these items. I bought this and the warhammer for 300pp each . And I earned the money!. The game is meant for fun. If my idea of fun is to try to improve the equipment my toon has, then so be it. There is no reason to bash others because they have different opinions and ideas then you. These posts are for obtaining knowledge about the game, maybe you should stop playing and experience the real world and learn this.

Ah ha ha, you high levels are so smug. If I had 5 cp for every time someone called me "twinked" (and neither of my characters are AT ALL, thank you very much), I'd have at least a few plat.

Particularly in the Luclin & PoP era, an enterprising low-level can score a few hundred plat without difficulty -- pelts & silks are quite lucrative, for instance. And a lot of pretty good weapons are in such abundant supply and such low demand that they sell for a pittance. I've purchased the Centi SS, Centi Warhammer, BABS, and BALS all before lev 15, and all for well under 100 pp.

    OK guys here is a tuffy im a troll war with full crusty. I got Centi Short Sword and Centi Longsword but i also got a wurmy. So which combination do i use. BTW str is 174 abd sta is 191.

    If you do not intend to be the main tank then I would definately go with the Wurmy in main and the Centi LS in the off hand. However if you are the main tank switch to the LS main and the SS off hand.
    Remember when you are the main tank the speed of your weapons is vital to keeping agro.

    Wurmy and Centi Long Sword. Gotta love the damage of the two. at least, that is my opinion. When you have people who can haste you around, the slight difference between the Centi LS and Centy SS is trivial.

    If you have a haste item and are in group with haste caster or bard the Wurmslayer/Centi Longsword combo is the way to go. Without haste and depending on your lvl you may be better off using Short Sword in primary but only at lower lvls IMHO

    Hiya, i'm a level 15 Rogue on Prexus. I was wondering, would this be a nice offhand weapon for me? I'm Currently using a Slime Coated Harpoon in my main and a Tombcarver in Secondary.Thanks in Advance!

    I highly recommend a one hand slashing weapon like this for rogue's offhand. Always nice to have skill in something other than piercing, plus its easier to find higher damage, low cost slashing weapons than piercing... you can do lots of damage with the right sword. Centi SS and LS are certainly two nice examples.

    Icetooth claw is primary only. This would force you to put the much better centi shortsword in secondary. Sell the icetooth claw, put the centi in primary, and use whatever you can afford in secondary. The centi warhammers sell pretty cheap. Or if that is too much look for the crystallized longsword which has same stats as icetooth claws, but is either melee. Secondary damage is miniscule compared to primary, so get the centi into your primary melee slot. Also, if you can afford it, the centi ss, centi ls combo is pretty nice.

    The price on this thing (At least for Terris-Thule) is way off. These go for 250-400pp on the server. Got mine for 70pp and a crystallized sword (worth about 250pp). About midrange for what I haven seen.

    What does the Centi Short Sword look like exactly? Ive seen the longswords but not sure if I've seen a short one. Does it look like a dagger or something? Maybe a shorter version of the longsword?

    When held, you might say this sword looks like a Japanese katana; it's slightly curved and with a slender blade. Sorry if I butchered the description as I'm no expert on swords, but when I saw the CSS, a katana came to mind.

    Looted one of these for my 21 tank. It looks like a plain version of the sword the Val Shir tiger is holding on the "loading" screen getting into game. It's short (duh), slightly curve, and grey. Not sure about the atk bonus, but compaired to the Dwarvin Axe he was using, it's wonderful.

    The centi shortsword is roughtly the same length as a standard longsword. I have one paired with a blackened alloy longsword (standard longsword graphic, same as fine steel), and they are about the same length. The centi is a bit longer. Also, the blade is darker in color, and a bit thicker, with a curved tip. Not overly ornate like the centi longsword, but a nice look.

    12/25 is fantastic for the price, but, at the risk of sounding ungrateful, I just noticed there is no damage bonus on this item. That makes it a fine off-hand weapon, but it isn't quite the god-send that it seemed at first. Still darn good for the 400p it cost me though.

    That just means that the person who took the screenshot couldn't wield it. The damage bonus varies depending on class and level (and maybe STR? Don't know about that), so if the person examining it can't wield it, it doesn't show a damage bonus. And, at level 37, my centi shortsword shows a damage bonus of 4, just like every other weapon I've thought to check so far (just went up from 3 at level 36).

    My oops! I reported no dmg bonus after checking it on my Druid who was carrying it. Since Druids cannot use it, it showed no bonus. Bonus is +9, quite good! My above comment is withdrawn. This is a magnificent weapon for the price. Might as well sell most other swords to merchants right now.

    As of last night on Solusek Ro...

    Saw these Centi weapons for sale:

    Longsword 1k
    Warhammer 1k
    Shortsword 500pp

    Tried to get the shortsword but sold by the time I was done fighting and got a tell out. I can only imagine that these are going to drop in price since I have seen a lot of auctions lately for them.

    On Rodcet Nife, the prices seem to be stabilizing at about the following levels:

    Centi SS 400-600pp
    Centi LS 1k-1.5kpp
    Centi warhammer 300-400pp
    Centi warspear 200-350pp

    I have seen auctions outside these ranges, but not often.

    These Centi swords and hammers and etc.. have flooded the market. It is a nice little weapon but, it has become very hard to sell these for anymore than a few hundred plat. Save these and put them on you new rogue and warrior twinks.
