Better weapons
# Feb 04 2004 at 7:19 PM Rating: Decent
Actually, you peeps will have better weapons by the time you can take on a giant bat in Qeynos Hills...

Note sarcasm in the statement above. Basically, it's like this: If I already had better, why the *beep* would I bother to kill this mob in the first place? Mobs dont drop enough equipment to equip your entire guild at once. With a sizable raid force doing raid hits every night, it can STILL take a month or MORE for you to win a NODROP upgrade to your current weapon. You people who are fortunate enough to have already won the roll on better weapons need to get off your high horses. Not everyone can win the roll on an Uber-Weapon-of-Mob-Slaying on the first try.

Most of us have to take what we can get, and wait our turn to get the better stuff.

Yeah we had this drop off a gobbie cabalist in HHK but it was changed in the inventory of our SHD to a Sharpened Flotsam he was mad.

Nice weapon, especially when you factor in the bane dmg and the stats

i believe a skill modifier was added to this during a recent patch. perhaps 12% backstab... not 100% sure. didn't read patch msg, was hurrying to get on and start raidage.

quote: Unfortunately it's not range usable... wish it were, though...

As I was just recently awarded one of these I can confirm that it is in fact...range equipable. Fact, if you look directly above these posts at the weapon's information, it clearly states that it is "range-equipable" as well.

Wow is this really a range slot item now? Could someone please send in another picture to Allakhazams I would really like to know if this truely can be equiped in the range slot I dont like my crapy Goranga Idol hehe. This would be a perfect addition to my range I love the Stamina on it, ofcourse all the other stats rock too. Please someone give me some more info if that guy down there was right about the range thing.

RE: Range???

It certainly is Range equippable the last time I saw it.

It retains some popularity (most guilds that can do the Burrower are quickly on to Shei and Ssra mobs, which have better weapons frankly) because it does not go obsolete when your mainhand is upgraded but more frequently goes to the range slot.

I thought I'd check with Magelo to be sure but it is still shown as rangeable.

As much as I'd love this weapon for my ShadowKnight (that Stalagterror spine spear lost it's novelty)... this is a great Rogue item...

Not everyday you see a 14dmg weapon with this delay and those type of stats! It really sucks being 51... I thought I'd have the world by the short hairs... but I wanna see all this stuff lvl 60s are seeing =).. hehe
