Gartrog Smitehammer may be found at -1320, -370 post-revamp.

You say, 'Hail, Gartrog Smitehammer'

Gartrog Smitehammer says 'You have heard of the strange stones being recovered from ancient dungeons? It is true. Powerful stones of unknown origins have been discovered as of late in the newly discovered dungeons. I see you wield a warrior's most prized honor. Congratulations on your acquiring such a fine weapon. It holds great power. I worry however if you were to try to augment your new weapon with one of these new stones. I have done some research and it seems the Red Scabbard used to combine and uncombined your weapon, could potentially harm any augmentation you might add. However with the help of Wenden here, we have been able to successfully forge all three versions of your weapon! The scabbard no longer works with them, but we have achieved some nice results by adding various augmentations to them. We could perhaps craft you a new set of weapons if you are [interested].'

You say, 'I am interested.'

Gartrog Smitehammer pulls out a shining smithy's hammer. 'Hand me your Red Scabbard and your Jagged Blade of War. I will supply the rest of the metal since you helped out Kargek with the note from his brother and the gift you gave to him.'

Give him the Red Scabbard and Jagged Blade of War.

Gartrog Smitehammer begins to furiously work the metal. Sparks fly and a faint magical aura seems to surround the immediate area. 'Ah, a fine job! Your new weapons, ______! Good luck on your travels and if you find any of the augmentation stones, you can now use them to make these fine weapons ever finer!'

You receive an augmentable version of the Jagged Blade of War, which can be converted to augmentable versions of the Blade of Strategy and the Blade of Tactics and back again.

Is the quest NPC in the revamped East Freeport on TLP 3.0 (Ragefire/Lockjaw)?

The quest itself is LDoN era, but it could be active... as they have allowed melee augmentations since launch on TLP it would follow that you could augment your warrior epic.

Still works ;)

And it is Sword of Runes from the level 26 mage spell. http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=9264

Make sure you have the Jagged Blade of War and not the Blade of Strategy/Tactics.
Place Summoned: Sword of Runes in the Red Scabbard.
Combine.
You now have all three weapons.
Hand in the scabbard and Jagged Blade of War.
Do a happy dance with dual BoT/BoS's ;)

Still works both sets are given to you and no Red Scabbard so make sure you get your BoS and BoT (Un Augged) before you hand your stuff in.

yep the trick still works, just did it today. basically this just gives you two blades of strategy and two blades of tactics for a cool double blue or double red look. i followed these instructions from further down on this page:


"Just did this less than 5 minutes ago. It still works. However, it does not work quite as posted. Here's a step by step of what I did.

Had a guildie create me a couple Blade of Runes. I was wearing the BoT and BoS. I attempted to combine 1 Blade of Runes in the Red Sheath, but could not because it said it would create a duplicate (Blade of Strategy). So I tried to combine 2 Blade of Runes in the Red Sheath and got the 'cannot combine in this container' message.

Took my BoS and BoT, combined them in the sheath for the JBoW.

Then I combined 1 Blade of Runes in the Red Sheath and recieved a BoS and BoT.

*evil grin*

Took my JBoW and Red Sheath to Gartrog Smitehammer, turned them in, and recieved my AUGMENTABLE BoS, BoT, and JBoW... as well as having the non-augmentable BoS and BoT equipped!

The icon was changed as well as making them augmentable."

Epic weapon people will not talk to you until you are 51. PLUS in order to do the 1.0 you have to get items from Plane of Sky and Plane of Fear, hence every minimal level of 46

The sky drops are multiquestable, and in numerous cases you can turn quest items in to an npc that refuses to speak to you to still obtain the reward. I knew a warrior who was a very low level with his epic. I can't remember what level, but around the 20 or 30 mark.

I finished the epic at 33. The quest guy for "Make it Augmentable" said he did not need my JBoW or red scabbard. I went out and leveled to 35, and finally came back to freeport today to try it, and it worked. Sword of runes trick still works as well. The worn effect on blade of tactics also stacks with itself. The only problem with this quest besides the level limit is that the augmentable JBoW has the same icon as the other two augmentable blades, making them hard to tell apart.
Yes, it still works.

"You receive an augmentable version of the Jagged Blade of War, which can be converted to augmentable versions of the Blade of Strategy and the Blade of Tactics and back again."

You do NOT receive the Red Scabbard back with this quest. You do get back 3 seperate epic pieces. The 2hs JBoW, Blade of Strategy and Blade of Tactics. 3 augmentable pieces, no red scabbard.

First off, if you plan to use the sword of rune trick, do it before you do this. As of 5/27/06 it still works. Now, all other information is correct but the following. On turnin, I received Blade of Tactics, Blade of Strategy and Jagged Blade of War back. All 3, but not the Red Scabbard.

Gartrog Smitehammer is located near the 2nd gate to E Free under a tent, along side Wenden Blackhammer and Kargek Redblade. To find them, zonen in from North Ro to East Free. As soon as you enter the first opening, look to the right. You will see a wagon near a building in the center of the court yard. Go around that side, past the wagon and you will see the tent with the epic 3some. If you go the right, you should not get aggro. Be wary that the guard patrols pass near the tent, so timing can be critical. Not sure, becuase I am not KOS. Loc neg 1322, neg 358

Doing it twice?

There's ogres here, so we can't leave it to them to figure it out on thier own. This is probably how you get 2 red swords (which would be nice) and 2 blue swords (for blue frogs) without doing this quest twice.

Find mage, level 29 or higher. Ask him for a Summoned: Blade of Runes. Combine that in you red scabbard, and you will receive the 2-handed sword. (This was a fix for some warriors who lost both versions.) This should work even if you have the two one-handers.

While you have the 3 non-augable swords, turn in the two hander and the scabbard, and you should have 5 swords, as listed below.

If you know how to store a no drop, lore item in a way that doesn't conflict with getting another, you could even have 6 epics, but I don't know any reason you would WANT to do that. (If you want to try this, it involves dying and if it were actually useful, would be considered an exploit.) Maybe you could convince people that you did your epic twice?

Don't bother doing any part of this quest twice. (Unless you're planning to MQ it for someone else.)

Powerful stones of unknown origins have been discovered as of late in the newly discovered dungeons. I see you wield a warrior's most prized honor.

#ShortbusMadness, Posted: Jun 24 2004 at 8:27 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) the way the procs work is this, you do the DD, and then you get 250 intial hate, then after 6 seconds you get another 250, it might go on im not sure, you notice because when you proc epic, like the 2hander, and someone else procs it, it says your rage of vallon has worn off... it doesnt do it normally tho, it might add extra aggro per taunt, there is no real way to find out seeing as eq doesnt give us raw numbers on hate
#ShortbusMadness, Posted: Jun 12 2004 at 5:42 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) warriors are actually damage dealers, high end warriors can dish out 250 damage per second but in the end honestly it doesnt matter much for you, as long as you hold solid aggro unless you are infact high end time. the epics are fine the way they are. 14/24 isnt THAT bad, and the effects are nice, just throw a lifetap proc on the red blade and a anger 3 on the blue blade and they will pwn
#Raxxus, Posted: Mar 21 2004 at 12:39 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ok the other day i saw a warrior weield 2 blade of strategy's.. HOW!? please got tell me how to do this? do you do the epic twice??

I believe this is possable. And here is how I think it is done.

Get the normal Un-Augmentable versions of the two blades as you normally do.
Once you have them then get the Sword pieces again. 2 Blades, 2 hilts combine in the scabard to get the Jagged Blade of War.

Now you have Un-Augmentabe Jagged Blade of War and the Un-Augmentable single blades at the same time.

Then do the Scabbard and Jagged Blade of War (must be the combined blade) hand in.

You should now have:
1 Blade of Stratagy (Un-Augmentable)
1 Blade of Tactics (Un-Augmentable)
1 Jagged Blade of War (Augmentable)
1 Blade of Stratagy (Augmentable)
1 Blade of Tactics (Augmentable)

The augmentable version, and the other version are two different items. Supposedly, there is some trick using a mage summoned sword, to get the augmentable version without turning in your 1h swords.

Yes, a warrior must caculate several things. True, damage is one of them, skills, stats, resists, and agro are all other parts of the warrior's battle millahedron (1000 side object). In fact, if a warrior only pays attention to damage, he should leave eq and go play a game that is easier for him, such as centapede.

You dont need the scabbard anymore as they give you all three swords. You wont need to combine to get them.
