/sigh There's ALWAYS something better, doesn't mean this is no good. Give it a rest with "this sux you can get way better".
Is there NOTHING better than "Two tined corpse pitchfork" in the game? Oh, there is? Gee I guess the fork sux then too huh?
Darkblood sword is a POS? Hahahaha, no it ain't, it's a decent weapon. Next time this "POS" is rotting let me know and I'll loot it for you. If it would ever rot... geez I can see people rolling for it already. POS? Gimmee a break.
So what's the absolute bestest most amazingest weapon in the game? Use your brain, it depends on many things. The only thing that truly sux in game is the attitude of some of the players...

Oooooh, I feel better now!!

I'll tell you why, I'm a paladin, I got mine at level 63, I needed a good 2h slasher at the time and didn't feel like spending 40k on a windblade.

the damage to delay is very close to a windblade, but for free. For others its not a great weapon; but for a paladin or a sk who thrive on 2h weapons its a beauty.

Just because you wouldn't use it doesn't mean others would love to have it. Its still a great weapon, if you don't want it I know many others that would.

#Halfzipp, Posted: Apr 19 2004 at 9:00 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) What?? Dude are you feeling ok?? THis weapon is so crap its silly. Its no where near close to a windblade. Windblade is 50/44 this is 43/49, how the hell are those close?? This ratio is just plain gey, maybe when Luclin first came out this was an Ok~ wep but by todays standars this thing is pure garbage. Im sorry to make you feel bad but at 63 if you think this is a good wep for a pally/Sk you Really need to stop playing your pally and make a new character cause obviously you have no clue about Knights.

By replying to 2-3 yr old posts, you just show how little you've played this game. When Luclin was released, this was an excellent 2h sword, and Rumblecrush and Doomshade were raid targets for decent guilds.

Now, they can be 1-grouped by elemental geared players. This sword did not rot during Luclin, and probably upgraded many knights when it dropped. You obviously weren't around then. You apparently don't know much about 2h'er's, either, because the Ornate GB, with a 25 delay does not get the big damage bonus that 2h'ers are famous for, which require a delay of 28. Neither does the pitchfork that others think is so ********

You kill this mob for it's other loot, which is still respectable, or for the encounter. Not this weapon.

Your post just shows that you're another frikken PoP wonder kid that leveled to 65 in 10 days or less, and don't really know squat about the game or older content. Mudflation=you.

#Halfzipp, Posted: May 13 2004 at 2:09 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The guys post was 10 days b4 mine so mebe you should look at the date on the post b4 you make comments.. April 2004 and the guy says that this weapon is good.. Im sry but by todays standards this weapon is crap and having a 63 Pally saying that is good is just crazy.. Yes it was good when Luclin first came out but he is not saying that..

I just looked at your profile, Halfzipp, some of your items are not the absolute best in game. Therefore, the items you have suck, right? I mean if there's something better, then what you have has to suck according to your logic.
Anyway, shouldn't throw a hissy fit just cuz you don't like the weapon, as you say there's better out there, go comment on those ones, Mr. Negative.

If you would pay more attention to the date of the message you are replying to, you would notice that it was posted in 04. In fact so was the message before that, and the one before that one was done in 03. So before you go flameing,

This is a good sword for a young Berserker (on Firiona Vie). Combine the lack of No Drop with the lack of a Recommended level on this bad boy :)

I got mine off Radir on my first raid on him. Was lvl45. I don't even want a Windblade, not much of an upgrade for the cost.

I got one of these babies on my 53 Pally. I usually switch off with this and my Tae Ew Two Hand Sword which is much faster but doesnt hit for as much. And yes, pallys DO get crits with AA points. Something I am working on as well

Pretty nice weapon i guess, like a small upgrade to Argent Protector. One of the more common drops in UP I believe. Anyways I couldn't see going back to 49 delay, i current am a 56 paladin using a 50/44 Windblade and that even seems insane slow. It makes it worse when I play my monk or use my 28/25 Longblade of Vitality. Anyways, I can't wait to cripple or critical with WB, I should be doing near 1k damage *I Hope*

Our Guild did a raid on Fire and Ice (aka Tawro and Radir)... We picked up this little beauty from Radir. My guilds considerations were between my level 52 paly and a level 55 warrior. I won the award because lets face it, warriors are awesome duel weilders and this sword doesn't deserve to stay buried in someones backpack or bank. I was very happy and can't wait to go hack something up in the fight against evil...
Got one last night

Was a pick up on a U.P. raid, when all was buffed they asked, who can pull. DOH, me being the highest ranger of 55 raised his hand and pulled the named Zelniak to the zone, no adds. After his loot was done we went and did Radir.
Long battles. I won the roll on this bad boy. Even better that my RL wife plays next to me as a 55 chanter casting permanent haste on me :)

Had a bit of a raid to umbral last night, our 60 paladin picked up this little gem for an alternative to epic without so much taunt... so he was fighting with it for the remainder of the raid. Had him off-tanking a mob and at one point he crippled for 779 with this beauty. Nice!

Damn paladins and their AA points, critting is supposed to be for warriors. ;)

combat fury is first AA, but only lets paladin's crit/cripple vers anything. and slay undead ups our chance to crit/cripple vers undead. also our disc holyforge allows us to crit/cripple vers undead, and the disc also ups the chance to crit/cripple vers undead :)

They do if they put their AA points into (I think this is the one) combat mastery, or something like that. Gives the ability to crit, though I haven't heard if they can crip with them too.

Good to see Verant still can't figure out that 2HS swords should be bigger than short swords. Such as the BABS and BIBS. Nothing more humorous than watching a paladin switch from using a weapon that looks like a short sword 2 handed style (BABS), then pulling out ghoulbane and a shield and go to using a 1HS that looks like a 2HS one handed style..... Heh.

Heh not to mention Centi Longswords :)
They'd be silly even if they were 2H!

hehe, well I saw a 2h sword that looks like a centi ls. It's called a Kel Xundrau, Xaunmae or something like that. Drops in akheva, stats are 39/45, str, dex, sta, cha, wis, int, and agi +3, war, pal, shd, usable. I think a centi ls in a 2h version does look cool in my book :)Look it up cause it's posted on this site :)

theres a sword from Gozzrem in ToV that has the centi longsword graphics, and it is also 2hs. *very* nice SK only weapon i believe. might be pally usable but i doubt it. funny thing is it was a Troll SK who got the thing -along with the snowcone (25/25 1hb sk only looks like a caster globe item) because there were no other SK's there- and the way trolls use a 2hs is still with one hand, though instead of sweeping from the side with it we do indeed bring it down from above our heads. So it still just looks like a 1hs :P

*sigh* I still feel goofy from using a BABS about 30someodd levels ago. Ahh well, if clerics wear neon green BP, I suppose I'll use a shortsword 2handed, and my Black Blade of Torment (looks like Dark Reaver) 1handed ;)
Giving my 2 cents, cause that's all I can afford
RE: Ahhh, the size doesn't matter, its how you use it!
# Feb 21 2002 at 4:08 PM Rating: Default
I don't feel goofy at all about using a BABS at level 27 and getting 120 pt critical hits and 150 point crippling blows. If I should get this sword someday I won't feel goofy about using it, either.
