Double Proc
# Jun 12 2004 at 1:49 AM Rating: Decent
While this sword dmg/dly is not all that great, the spirit tap alone makes it a prize in my weapon bag.

Like alot of SK's I always have Shroud of Death on. With Soul Abrasion (3) I can proc 150dd/leech on mobs. This swords effect Spirit Tap works along with my regular self proc.

Let me tell you from personal experience I proc 8 to 9 times in a regular planular mob fight. I crit to for 300. :grin:

If you are an SK and can get ahold of this sword, you will not be disappointed. Clerics love me when I use this sword.

Btw, I purchased this sword for 10k about a year and a half ago. I have not seen one since.

This has a 4% increased chance to proc over the default proc rate of weapons (according to unknown070 value).

I don't believe the damage bonus is 18...I'm not positive on that but I believe it's 9. I'd have to log on and look at mine but I'm about 75% sure. Anyone know for sure?

Damage bonuses are based on the 3 things:

1 hand or 2 hand
weapon delay
level of person using it

So, at your level, it may be 9, but for someone who is higher level, the bonus will be higher.

This used to drop in the soulstealer event. You get the key from the imprisoned grimling in GF (still there, as it happens). Then you run the high priest event and loot the other no rent key from the high priest's corpse. Go to the room opposite of high priest, open the door with the key from GF, then give the Vah Shir prisoner the key you just got from the high priest event. He then tries to leave, you get attacked by a ton of skeletons, etc. This sword can drop in the process.

All of this is pretty irrelevant now, however. When AC was overhauled, all the old events (high priest, soulstealer, ring of fire, everything in inner acrylia) were removed. Virtually no did the Acrylia raids before the revamp, mostly because of horrible risk vs reward, so there are most likely very very few of this weapon circulating.

Procs about 4 times during an average solo fight,with dex around 135 ish. Procs and harms mob whether im in need of lifetap or not.With an ID4 ring , each tap is arond 160 to 190, it adds up. I will be using this on and off until I finish the quest for Innys Curse

# Aug 27 2002 at 9:06 PM Rating: Decent
All I know is that there is the Wurm, High Priest, RoF and a Kitty quest in AC. This drops from the kitty quest. A Vah Shir spawns, ya follow it while killing any mob that tries to kill it etc etc, much like the gnome quest in CT.

I think ya have to do the High Priest one first ,which is dead easy, to trigger this quest )

please confirm what this drops off of.....

Yes, and if it were 1hb, monk usable, and not lore, monks would rock (more). but its not. So whats the point?

This is a nice weapon, and if it procs frequently, will be a big help for Sk's and Pallies, especially those who like to solo a bit.

Its 2hs, and SK, Pally only. I think the reason its NOT 1hs, and ISN'T warrior usable, is the same reason you want it to be. It would unbalance the class.
RE: IF this was 1hs
# Apr 02 2002 at 9:06 PM Rating: Default
Not entirely true, there's a VP drop that has this very same proc, and is 1H, and is warrior usable.
RE: IF this was 1hs
# Jul 29 2002 at 10:12 PM Rating: Decent
yes...and thats VP...not acrylia caverns :\ little bit of a difference when comparing those zones
RE: IF this was 1hs
# Aug 14 2002 at 5:44 PM Rating: Default
he wasnt comparing the zones the item dropped in, he was comparing the item. he was replying to a guy who was talking simply about how awesome a war 1hs with that spell on it would be, not the difficulty in getting it.
RE: IF this was 1hs
# Sep 29 2002 at 3:58 AM Rating: Default
was trying to make the point that better loot drops in higher end zones...hence the comparison :(
This drops off....

I believe this drops off the Grimling Soulstealer in the Ring of Fire quest in Acrylia Caverns.

Im a level 49 SK with this weapon and I still cant proc it. Im figuring level 51 or 55. Anyone have info on it?

wow indeeeeeeeed

wonder what this will sell for, and if i'll ever have that much.
Hmmm... Disturbing
# Mar 14 2002 at 12:42 AM Rating: Default
Thought paladins disdained anything that smelled of evil, such as lifetaping, ect. To steal life and add it to yer own is evil - Shadow Knight material. Why would a Good, Righteous, Lawful and Honorable paladin ever use such a vile thing? Just wondering the justification on making an item so against paladin virtues. Best wishes.
RE: Hmmm... Disturbing
# Mar 15 2002 at 12:55 PM Rating: Decent
just because a paladin CAN wield a weapon, doesn't mean he SHOULD or has to ;)

rusty sword, orc pick, etc not up to paladin standards, but doesn't mean they aren't able to wield them
RE: Hmmm... Disturbing
# Mar 29 2002 at 1:51 AM Rating: Decent
I was just making a 'Role Playing' what if kinda thing, didnt expect all the response. Shadow Knights will use whatever means is necessary the more wicked the better. Paladins are 'good' folk and will use whatever is necessary to them and their views. So if a pally had this and used it would it be a necessary thing? probably, cause he will be vanquishing those same Shadow Knighs with it!
RE: Hmmm... Disturbing
# Mar 14 2002 at 4:45 PM Rating: Decent
I'll point out that many paladins enjoy the benefits of werewolf form..which procs a lifetap.

#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 14 2002 at 3:42 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) then give SK's some heals too.
RE: Hmmm... Disturbing
# Jul 29 2002 at 10:20 PM Rating: Default
ummm excuse me? maybe your missing the point of your class.

Pali = defensive based
sk = offensive based

and umm, since when is spirit tap one of our (sk's) best spells? its merely what we have to make due with at lvl 55...its not even close to the best, its very wasteful mana wise and will never be used until necessary really, so please, learn your spell and try to learn what your class is for before making yourself look like an idiot.

and can you even compare those 2 weapons. there is a huge level difference in getting both of them. so dont even bother putting up garbage like that

Why don't you take your nasty, racist posts and go away?
RE: Hmmm... Disturbing
# Mar 14 2002 at 8:11 AM Rating: Default
um...if you are going to put the pally epic up there put the sk epic in as choose to play this game so stop complaining
RE: Hmmm... Disturbing
# Mar 18 2002 at 11:34 PM Rating: Default
soulfire aint the pally epic. Fiery Defender is. And why are u complaining about Soulfire. I personally think soulfires suck, but! ......... they look tighttttttt.
# Mar 14 2002 at 8:53 AM Rating: Decent
I do not see the paladin epic in any post here ? .. but maybe i am just confused 'eg'
# Mar 13 2002 at 9:56 PM Rating: Decent
wonder how long it will take for this to get nerfed or at least made no drop
# Mar 13 2002 at 7:25 PM Rating: Default
When i first looked at the proc i thought it said Spinal Tap. Wow 150 life tap...hehehe.
RE: Proc
# Feb 12 2003 at 12:56 AM Rating: Decent
Yes it's a very nice proc...but what level does it proc. Some say 51, others say 55...anyone know for sure?
RE: Proc
# Sep 29 2002 at 9:28 AM Rating: Decent
All of our procs go to eleven right accross the board. Eleven, eleven, eleven...
Hell yeah

My paly is going to have to head that way.
what drops this?
