My Mains a DE Necro. Been looking for a 1HB weapon thats got low delay and high Damage. Yeah I'm a caster but when soloing in a area thats not good for kiting, sometimes ya got to stand and fight. The only weapon I've seen thats likable is the Fable Hammer of the Wind.
Can some1 reply with help in finding a 1HB of said likeness? That Necros can use? Blood Rune Battle Wand is what I'm using now :(

Anyone have a BL over lev 62 that is maxxed on 1hb. Is it 255. I am at 255 on all melee skills and have been at 255 since lev 60. I am now 1/2 way to lev 62 and have yet to see it move on any of my weapons. Casters realm is not updated. Does the skill finally go beyond 255 after you get to lev 66???

Should a Pally skill up on 1HB and 2HB?
# Nov 24 2004 at 1:12 PM Rating: Decent

I'm a level 15 Pally - dinged 15 3 times yesterday, too much being killed :).

I've seen the posts on a Pally keeping 2HS and 2HS up, but what about 1HB and 2HB? Are there great higher level weapons or other reasons to work on these skills?

Thanks,

No need to keep up any specific weapon skills, the skills rise fast. I think I went from 0 to 200 piercing in a couple of hours with a 26/22 Two Tined Corpse Pitchfork. Costs maybe 1-2k (BB, 11/2004).

THAT'S BAD ADVICE! The game system is intended to work best if you keep all of your skills up, as much as possible and practical, as you go along (the same goes for AAs). Don't be so impatient. If you don't get 1HS or 1HB going on a Pally, you can never get "Bash" up as you can't hold a shield with a 2-hander weapon.
If you don't worry about skillups when you're young, you'll spend more time missing than hitting at the higher levels. It's true that a Pally and SK have awesome 2-hander weapons at higher levels, but that old addage about them never using 1-handers after level 55 or so was true only through the PoP generation. Now, there are some awesome 1-handers and some fantastic shields to go with them.
Also, with the advent of augments, you can customize a 1-hander to deal devastating damage and, at the same time, get great protection, mitigation, stat increase and bashing ability with the new shields

THAT'S BAD ADVICE really caught my attention, so I had to go back a read what was being said. You shouldn't really spend time trying to find a weapon for each skill that your toon can use, I know Beast Lords that have never used a hand to hand and are in the 60's if not into their 70's by now. The complete trick to weapons skills is this:

If you plan on getting and then using your epic, find out what it is and start hunting for those types of weapon.

If you plan on using your bash skill, then forget about any two handed weapons, you can't wield them and a shield.

If you aren't planning on using your epic as a weapon, then you will probably have more than one option weapon to use. Finding out which one suits you the most will probably be determined on what you can afford or are willing to quest for.

I have a Pally that use to swear by her 2hPiercer, MotQ (Messenger of the Queen), of course that was back when they had the running of the gnomes and the ferry boats where active, and in some parts, the only way to get to the zones.

Anyway, for an example, this druid has no intentions of ever getting her Epic(s), she's content with using her Soul Stripper, which is a 1hb over the 1hs of her epic.

There is also one other thing to consider, By the time you get to a higher level, and a lot of people have forgotten this since about the 4th expansion, each time you level you get 5 training point that you use with your guild master to train in. So if you level 10 times you will have 50, by the time you hit level 20 you should have 100, lvl 30 150....although it will cost you some coinage, chances are, you like most have never used those training points and they are just sitting there waiting to be spent.

There was a time when you couldn't have more than 20 or so training points saved, after a few more expansions came out that cap was removed, but by that time most had just given up on using them.

You can also use those training points to learn a trade skill, language or to increase our spell casting abilities.

Back in the old days, you got what you looted, now you can customize your weapon with various augments, so you need to take that into consideration as well.

Bottom line is, use what you enjoy using, but if you plan on using your epic, you should find out what it is and get some abilities in that type as well.

realise this is a reply to a 2 year old post, but "THAT'S BAD ADVICE". a BL at lvl 70 without any hand to hand skill is hopefully now playing a window-licking facerolling keyboard-mashing DK in WoW driving other players crazy with "teh stupid".

being a one-trick pony in EQ is bad. never can tell what weapon will fall in your hands so keeping skills at least paced close to level is worth it.

Question to other beastlords. Do our melee skills raise slower than normal? I tried balancing 1hb, hand to hand and piercing; they've never come close to capping per level. Right now they're in the 165 range. My bard at 40 is at 195 range for his three 1 hand weapons. Curious minds want to know. Thx

ok this is something ive been curious about since i joined everquest. the difference between 1hs and 2hs. or any of the 1h skills vs. 2h skills. now obviously u will do more base damage with a 2h weapon. but if u have a char like mine (iksar sk) who bashes and a weapon that swings fast (lower ratio) which would do more DOT? and since im an sk should i b worried about more DOT or more immediate damage (under 15-30 seconds?) im gonna post this on the 2h skills pages too.

When it comes to raising one's 1HB/1HS skills ASAP, which attribute helps most? INT, DEX, WIS, or STR? Or maybe all of 'em? I know I sound like a noob, but I've had a hard time trying to get that straight so please help THANKS.

Re: Dearborn.....Did you get dropped repeatedly as a child? Someone asks a question, and instead of just ignoring it, you feel the need to comment? Do us all a favor, zip it. There are many different age levels and levels of xp that play this game. Not everyone has the EXPERTISE that you obviously do. I am sure that not once have you asked a question that in hindsight made you go "DOH!!!". If you feel the need to be a complete prick, do so in a forum other than this.

at level 22, my 1hblunt is only at 78... for a woodelf druid, i have no clue if this is great or not, but it does take a very long time for me to raise it another level. what enemies should i be fighting? should i be going for aviaks or gnolls in SK or undead in Unrest?

at lvl 22, druid 1hb will max out at 92. if you are at 78, try meleeing mobs more when you can. if soloing, when they turn to run, always melee to finish them off. In groups, when mana is good, hop up and take a few swings. You're not in bad shape, but lagging a bit. The higher your level, the fewer chances you'll have to melee, so if you want to get the skill up, do it now.

a cracked staff? Is this a trick question. Shining star of light is a nice low level quest in qeynos, and much better than a rusty.
