Firiona Vie has different loot rules. Most items marked NO TRADE on other servers are tradeable there, subject to certain restrictions. Thus, this item would be purchaseable in the bazaar.
awesome price!

This is by far still one of my favorite weapons every swung. I find that the magic dmg chk rolls successful almost every 3rd swing. Might be a 'lil more.

In a world of sooo many great player made weapons, this one shines above all others as the experience of getting this weapon on a successful pop and him carrying it, far outways anything I or a friend could ever make for me. I say the same for the RING-FACE-NECK-and Greaves I wear =)

Go own Radir, hes fun, the challenge is fun, the reward (hopefully will be great)

Myself and a friend (Both Rogues) Snuck into UP. There was a Doom Shade raid starting up. WE helped kill the Dark Assassins and Masters and Watched them kill Doomshade. We both stabed him for 23, lol.
At the end of the battle we were sitting on the other Side of the enterence when one of them comes up and tells us to roll from 0 1000. I Rolled a 978 and my friend rolled 867. I founbd out we were rolling for this and won it. It was a great night.

Now all i got to do is raide my 1HS past 2... lol

Magic weapon damage
# Sep 20 2002 at 10:52 AM Rating: Decent

Magic weapon damage is added to your damage base, after the MOB makes a resistance check. Note that the resist check is made per point of damage.

Try using one of those phosphorous torches out of Katta Castellum (1 dmg +5 fire dmg 24 dly). Against a MOB, it has a base damage of 1 to 6 depending on resists (it also has a vampyre bane).

Also in offhand, it's true you don't get a mainhanded damage bonus...but you DO get an offhanded delay bonus, which can make your min hit with offhand up to about 4 damage.

It is 10/18 with a potential for an added 2 points of magic damage. tha magic damage can be resisted.
RE: Ratio on this weapon?
# Sep 04 2002 at 9:03 PM Rating: Decent
Almost right but completely wrong.

Yes it is 10 18 base damage. Every time the mob fails its resistance check it becomes 12 18. So fighting normal mobs it will usually be 12 18 but against named ones or raid stuff it becomes 10 18, which is still very nice.

After all, wuoshi drops the crescent blades of luclin which are 10 18 and have the proc but wuoshi is harder than tawro/radir.

Tawro and Radir are easy.

On a side note on povar the CBoL sell for are people thinking?

Been using a magic damage weapon in my offhand for a while and know how they work. As everyone should know, offhand weapons don't get the damage bonus you get on your primary hand, so getting a hit for 1pt will happen. When using a +magic damage weapon I've never hit under 2 points of damage with it. So it seems the + magic damage acts more as a damage bonus, not a change on the damage on the weapon, that ranges from 1 to the amount of magic damage.

So on this weapon, think of the +magic damage as a addition magic bonus of 1 or 2 points depending on resistance. Not as a 11/18 or 12/18 weapon.

I use the LSoEE as my offhand 16-29 with a magic damage of 5. My offhand damage minimum is 2. If what you are saying is true, my min would be 5 but it is not. Magic damage does not act like a damage bonus. Depending on the resist check, the LSoEE can be a 16/17/18/19/20/21 -29 damage weapon.

your damage of 2 means the mob made its resistant check and resisted the extra damage.

This item dropped for us from the very powerful Spirit of Radir tonight. He is in the tunnels on the east side of the zone... the ones that lead to ShadeWeaver. The Spirit of Radir spawns after you kill Radir Fireshower.

Doomshade drops this AND what I think is more important, not sure if its a bug or something, it got NO, I repeat, NO dmaage bonus, its set to 0, ZERO.
Makes it kinda useless if you hit with just 1 to 30 with max 40... in lvl 60, lol, poor warrior. *sigh*

I have agree with everyone in saying this is a nice weapon, but not for Shadow Knights or Paladins. As a Shadow Knight I usually go the one handed route with a shield for the faster attack and extra AC. This weapon would be incredibly fast, but the dmg is too low IMO (for a class that doesn't dual wield). As an SK I would recommend something like a MoSS, EB, or Noct Blade and a good shield so you can stand up to the mobs in UP to begin with. Also, with the kind of muscle and organization you need to get the drops in Umbral Plains, it would be a shame if this didn't go to a Warrior for the sheer taunt factor of the weapon (18 dly + double haste and this would rule). Pallies and SKs get plenty of good 1 handers elsewhere (let's not forget the awesome Paladin drop in SF 18/25)- just my opinion and no I'm not flaming anyone.

With them saying this sword is common and also a no drop are alot of them just rotting away there and if so how hard would it be for a 30 war to get there and get one.

You would never get this drop at lvl 30. It takes a good effort from 2-3 groups of lvl 55+ to kill this mob, and at least one of them wants this item. NO one would let it rot or give it to you, unless you had a 50+ char that helped kill it, and got a CoH in to the area to loot it. And YES this is a very nice weapon for any of you that don't think so. Maybe not NTOV class weapon, but very good for dps with any dual wielding slasher. (Actually its 12 18 with the magic damage bonus)

It would be a very exciting feat if you could make it to the tunnels in UP at level 30. Running through ME is like running through WW, except that some ME mobs see through invis and there are lots of undead mobs and traps that spawn live and undead mobs. So, if you are VERY lucky, you can make it to UP with one invis and one SoW potion.

Also, this mob isn't just up all the time, waiting for someone to kill it. You have to bring at least one really good full 55+ group to fight its way in. The smallest group I "heard" that did this was a 60 pally, 58 pally, 60 cleric, 59 ranger, and 60 chanter.

So it is entirely unrealistic to think that anyone can just waltz into the tunnel and pick up Radir loot. Most likely, a small guild raid took him on and there will definately be someone in there that will loot it.

Everything gets default rarity of common until people submit information to the contrary. I'd guess that this is actually not a very common drop with stats like that.

Actually, this sword is more common than, say, the LSoF, or Pebble Crusher, however it by no means drops every time.

BTW, this would be very hard to get for a level 30 warrior if it were rotting unless that warrior new how to run to the room where Radir spawns or had a guide, had a way to invis, and didn't have invis break or get broken at the wrong time.

CoH is great for getting lowbies thru dungeons/high level zones for the purpose of looting no drop crap that would otherwise rot

ummm, yes you can... you can buy the looting rights... for the right price, many guilds won't care about a NO DROP item that they don't need. Just as people are buying MQs of Velious quest armors, you can buy the actual looting of items in game.

I've already seen groups/guilds take lower level characters into some high level places just to loot some gear that even I at 52 would like to have.

This sword looks like a Spiny Short Sword.

When we killed the mob that had this the first time, it went to a paladin, which was a waste. The second time I brought a lvl 1 vah shir bard all the way to UP and camped him.

Hehe the bard is lvl 6 now, and has a damn nice weapon.

I'm a paladin and I have this weapon. Is it a waste that I have it? Pretty much.

If you can take out radir for this, you can take out Tawro. Tawro drops 2 pal/sk only 1handed weaps. one is 20/24 and the other one is 15/20 cold damage+5.

If any other class in your party can use this, such as someone who duel wields, I'd say give it to them over the pal/sk 100 percent of the time.

1handers on pal/sk is a complete waste. we are attack gimped enough as it is even using 2 handed weaps.

2 handers are the only way to go in my opinion if you are a pal/sk. some have different views, but most agree that 2 handers > 1 handers.

with that being said, the reason why i have this weapon is because it would've rotted had i not looted it. sad that it'll sit in my bank and never get used when a bard/rog/ranger/war would prob really love this weap. :(

I do believe he means a 1HS is a waste going to a paladin when they usually prefer 2HS weapons. I of course could be wrong and he also was just stating an opinion. A lvl 1 bard cat would seem to be much more able to use a weapon of this level....just my opinion as well.
RE: graphic?
# Mar 02 2002 at 9:11 AM Rating: Decent
Hmmm, well a 10/18 sword clearly seems like a weapon for a dual wielding class. As far as paladin weapons go, so many weapons have a better ratio that are usable by sk/pal, and just regular mobs in Umbral Plains take forever to kill in a group so I am just guessing anything like a boss mob would be pretty tough, soooo if you are at a level where you are killing stuff like this you could easily go to hate and kill some "Knights of Innoruk (sp?)" and get a Darmetal Falchion 27/29 7int/wis. Granted it is a fairly rare drop but in my trips there I'd say I saw one drop about 30% of the time when we cleared the 2nd floor.

Being a Paladin, I can tell you that we constantly switch weapons. If you are facing casters you switch to 1hs or 1hb with a shield such as a Sarnak Battle Shield since the resists help as well. Not all Paladins favor 2hs constantly, I know many that favor 2hpierce or 1hs. Just because a Verant has designed Paladins and Shadow Knights to use 2hs doesn't mean we can not switch to other weapons when need be. I personally would love this sword because of resists and the interrupts I could get on casting mobs, plus I am going to do good damage without over aggroing.

"I personally would love this sword because of resists and the interrupts I could get on casting mobs, plus I am going to do good damage without over aggroing."

No, you aren't going to do "good damage" in comparison to pal/sk-only swords which carry much higher damage/delay ratios to offset the fact that you can't dual wield. Is a Paladin going to loot a Primal Warsword or Primal Hammer because they can use it and do "good damage" too?
