I could start the BL epic with my Beast at lv50 but only did the first turn in. Second turn in he would not let me do until lv51 and then I was able to finish it with my BL alt.

With the GoD expansion comes the nerf of Beast epic. YOu can still do the epic early but the process on the weapons will not work until 46.

Is there better stuff then this epic? I fudge the first claws that you need to get them and cannot get the cloak back, which you need to get the frist set of claws. And don't really7 want to restart.

Actually the epic can be done as low as level 10. We have epicfied 3 BL's so far 10 12 and a 14.

As of a recent patch ( I don't have the exact date) the BL is no longer doable until 50.

You can't do this at 15 unless you have a raid force of like 50 ....the mobs in grimling would wipe the floor with you, not to mention fungus grove. No way to do this at 15 unless Beast was level 15 and all others were 45+

Actually Beast epic can be done as low at level 15 only reason i know is we have done it tonight.
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 30 2003 at 6:43 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) epic. I would mainly use it for agro and soloing as most people use the secondary one. /boggle I play a chanter main plus a few other toons. I currently have 170 aa on enc and am flagged full elemental pop. i can see the advantages of primary when slower cant land a slow and for agro when solo but in a group using secondary? haste cap is 100 at 65 I beleive and 90 at 60 even lower at lower lvls. so vq 68%+40%=108% all you need on haste item is 32% to get max so rbb or CoF is enough to reach lvl 50 cap is below 90 but for math purposes it is 90% so the lvl 39 enc spell celerity would max you out with epic lvl 53 spell AQ 64%+40%= 104 14 over cap schw almost put you at cap so other then for the worn attack why wouold anyone use this secondary item? primary i can justify usefulness but if you have 3500pp you can get schw to do the job and bet a better dps weapon

Equally boggled. As an Enchanter with all those AAs you should know the V1 (Item) + V2 (spell) haste caps are:

Level 01 - 30: 50%
Level 31 - 50: 74%
Level 51 - 55: 84%
Level 55 - 59: 94%
Level 60 - 65: 100%

So yes, most people can hit the haste cap with just a 30+% haste item and an Enchanter. However, you don't always have an Enchanter or Shaman available. The combination of the Slow/DoT (Best BL slow before level 65 is 50%, no DoT with it) plus 40% haste on offhand and an Eyepatch of Plunder or BL Alacrity (once high enough), it makes a difference.

Mostly, these were made to be in line with other epics. They almost exactly mirror the Ranger epic swords, only our DoT does less damage and the slow is less. That there are better weapons now, of course! It's the prestige of wearing them. Plus, I can see how they would be great for the soloing BL.

you can get the beast epic any time you want ...the only part with a lvl requirement ( the first part with the librarian and the book) does not need to be done but you will have a chance of the medalion being eaten if you are under the required lvl

Proc not so bad
# Dec 14 2002 at 11:10 AM Rating: Decent
After talking with some bst's with their epic on Karana, you won't actually draw that much aggro if you play your bst smart. If soloing just let pet attack as normally and drop mobs health to 60% or less then step in and fight like normal. You can still back off even if proc occurs and heal yourself if you have to. Pet will still be able to keep agro even if proc has occured. If in groups send in pet till assist call is made, should be made around 80 to 90% of mobs life, then follow in. If aggro occurs just step back, mob will reagro MT easily.

Remember, bst's are only a lt tank with some melee capabilities. Our true power lies in our warders, they can far outdamage us over the course of a fight. Most bst's forget that. Personally since lvl 30 I have only died 4 times to my present lvl, and that includes living thru 2 naggy and vox raids. Play smart and youll live every time.

at lower lvls yes your Pet will most likely outdamage you unless your pretty heavily twinked.

Once you get lvl 62 your Pet lvls out and thats about as far as he gets damage wise which is about 60-70DPS depending on Mob and wether Pet is on his backside the whole fight...

All you can do then to increase your pets DPS is find your freindly neighborhood 62+ Mage to get a couple Fist Of Xiblat (10/20 with 150DD weapons X2) then a Girdle and Muzzle for an extra 500HPs and 10Dex plus 11% extra haste....With your Pets S O Storms proc that 3 procs.....Its hard to judge "exactly" what your Pet is doing DPS wise at this point but an educated guess would be an extra 10-15DPS so probably 70-90DPS more or less.

At lvl 65 with just a Wanning Light Katar and offhand Epic, Pet N I do approx 140DPS, once again depending on Mob and wether or not we can be on its back as opposed to in front getting all the dodges/reposte/blocks etc and also wether Mob is highly Cold resistant....
BUT, thats fairly low budget weapons really, AND, i still dont have several of my needed AAs to up my damage output......
So really at higher lvls, WITH good weapons, AND the proper AAs i can outdamage my Pet by almost double.

The Epic is good, though mostly for the Offhand 40% Haste til you get better....
The Wanning light Katar is better than the Primary Epic, anything better is going to be No Drop...

"Remember, bst's are only a lt tank with some melee capabilities"

Well at lower lvls yes thats about true....Im not quite there yet, im lvl 65 BUT still need more AAs and a set of Dumuls and i should be able to tank damn near as well as your "average" lvl 65 Warrior...
We dont have nor will we ever have the Mitigation of the Plate classes, BUT, with Combat Agility 3, Physical Enhancement, Lightning Reflexes 5, and my AGI at over 300, which i would be if i had a set of Dumuls, i should AVOID a large amount of damage altogether, and in the higher plains where most Mobs are hitting for 700+, every hit completely AVOIDED is 700+ less damage taken, that adds up fast.
I have a friend, a lvl 65 Beast that has most of his Dumuls and killer weapons, and raid buffed he is just under 8K HPs and all stats over 300+ with ATK of over 2000..
Im sure he is doing over 200DPS also....

The Beastlord is damn hard to beat and very under rated.
We can buff almost as well as a Shaman, and easily in the top 3 classes for DPS, have a 65% slow, can give a decent +9mana/HP buff, Raise anyones ATK by 250+ and ALL resist by 65-100...
Have a Pet that properly raid buffed will have around 7K HPs and does anywhere from 60-90DPS and can Tank in a Pinch, and we have the possibility of getting close to 8K HPs, Max stats, 100% Haste, well over 2000ATK all SELF buffed. and "can" be a decent ST and even a MT if need be...

Im nowhere near his stats or HPs, raid buffed right now, im lucky to clear 5400HPs, I am maxed at 280+ on ALL stats though, Str/Sta/Agi/Dex...
only have CA3 so far, need LR5, PE, etc...But yet i can still tank in Tier2 where Mobs are regularly hitting for 500+ and i have a long way to go in AAs, so will get quite a bit better....

So dont think your a one trick pony....

I agree , though I'm only 26 lvl .. after i pull the mob and sic me pet on em , I stand bac and do the normal DoT and DD and the Fleetin fury on me pet . By the time I get in the fight Mob bout dead
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 03 2003 at 5:35 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) There are a few ways to look at this, i have a lvl 45 bst(twinked like a fooker, since my main is a 61 sham) and he has like 900 AC at lvl 45, better than most plat tanks out there that r not severly twinked. My hp is only bout 1700 unbuffed, so not too bad in that department, so when i solo, i tend to melee the whole fight and wait till my epic procs (55% slow, very nice), and if u wanna know how i got my epic at lvl 45, u can read some of my other posts.
i wonder...

i wonder if "Sha's Vengeance" is a knock-off of Montezuma's Revenge!?!? Just a thought...
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 26 2002 at 11:21 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) If Verant would like to make up for the near identical copy of the ranger epic...they could be cool enough to change the proc to a DISEASE based slow...That would make for a useful addition overall when required. Thats a better disease based slow atm than shammys if I am correct(correct me if wrong).
well on the bright side of things
# Apr 01 2002 at 6:07 PM Rating: Default
well it does suck that this epic will draw tons of aggro. Look on the bright side of things, the off hand weapon is still pretty cool with the haste, and who says that you must use the main hand weapon. There are way better beastlord H2H weapons out there. Just none as good looking :P
RE: well on the bright side of things

as far as i can see i would rather have a BST MA with me rather than a ranger. Beastlords ahev pets and with them they deal way more dmg then a ranger =)
#REDACTED, Posted: Jan 09 2004 at 12:40 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You don't know what you're talking about by any means. I'm not entirely sure on the tanking part, but I would think a ranger would tank better than a Beastlord (I have played both to moderately high levels; BL is 47 and ranger 62), but the level difference between my BL and ranger is fairly large for the moment so I can't give a really good comparison. I do know, however, that rangers are much better damage dealers, even meleeing. Situationally, they are the best DPS whatsoever, but they are better than BL's without that added situational DPS.

The Addition of Erudites is a mistake on Allakhazam's part. You'll notice that the pic of the item does not have "ERU" under races. They've been making a lot of these kind of mistakes lately, but I guess with the 100's of new additions, it is understandable and forgivable.
NOT ranger epics
# Mar 21 2002 at 2:42 AM Rating: Default
Tenre, from what I've read on the beastlord site, these weapons are SIMILAR but NOT EXACT copies of the ranger epic.

The stats may be similar (I'd have to double check those). The haste is pretty much the same. However, the BST epic slows more than the ranger epic, at a cost of some damage in the DoT. BST = 55 percent slow 450 DoT Ranger = 45 percent slow 500 DoT
RE: NOT ranger epics
# Mar 21 2002 at 9:59 PM Rating: Default
You're close on the comparison between the ranger and bst epics.

Ranger offhand: 40% haste, +30atk
BST offhand: 40% haste, +30atk

Offhand effect is the exact same... just a different name

Ranger mainhand: procs 40-50% slow (40% at 50, 50% at 60, +1% each level) and 500 DoT for 2.5 minutes.
BST mainhand: procs 55% slow and 460 DoT for 2 minutes.

I feel sorry for the beastlords out there. This proc is gonna draw you *TONS* of aggro it ain't even funny. Rangers already go through it. I can't believe that Verant was this uncreative in making a new epic. You did so well in being creative with Luclin, giving us tons of new challenges, now you go and rip off the ranger epic as the new beastlord epic? Gimme a break...
RE: NOT ranger epics
# Jan 09 2004 at 12:53 AM Rating: Default
Well, the ranger society has learned to deal with this by just not doing the Earthcaller at all or using it for soloing. The offhand is one of the best weapons out there for quite some time, because the additional atk (not to mention the large amount of stamina and HP) is a great aid to them. Also, the 40% haste is only 1% slower than the best that I'm aware of, even from PoT. If it weren't possible to max out haste, the most someone could get in terms of increase in DPS is probably 2 or 3 points (1% additional haste at 200 DPS would mean 202 DPS), and it would be hard for a Beastlord to get his personal DPS high enough for those 2 or 3 points since the warder is a good source of DPS, itself.

In the BL epic, you obviously can't split them into two quests since they are acquired at the same time, but the BL epic is so easy that it doesn't matter. Use the primary for soloing and certain group situations (the new melee patch might have raised warrior taunt enough), and just keep the secondary out all the time.
RE: NOT ranger epics
# Mar 22 2002 at 7:49 PM Rating: Default
Yes, if proc is getting resisted, you can almost be sure the mob turns to you. Haven't noticed it much when the proc lands successfull.

just like everything else they have for beastlords these weaps are almost near copies of the ranger epics, comparable stats, these have better dmg del by only slightly, are h 2 h, but they have the excact SAME dot/slow on main and haste on offhand that the ranger epics have, all beastlord stuff sucks, maybe give verant some more time and they can get it right, and even the beastlord kunark armor sucks ***

RE: dumb verant
# Mar 21 2002 at 4:50 AM Rating: Default
I dont post much, but I just gotta say there is a MAJOR difference between ranger & bst Epic. Ranger Epic sword has haste ( worn ) BST epic has Haste Proc ( Spell ) so this will ADD to worn haste.

Dont flmae me if Im wrong, but I dont think I am.
RE: dumb verant
# Mar 21 2002 at 3:51 PM Rating: Default
You are wrong. The haste on the secondary is worn, not proc. The primary procs 55% slow and 460 dot over 20 ticks. The slow if resisted is a death trap, I did Kael Arena and Kith General, as soon it would proc, the mob would turn on me.

RE: interesting
# Jan 01 2003 at 3:27 AM Rating: Default
Are you kidding? I'd rather have 20AC and no agi on an item and 200 agi and no AC.

After you get past 75 agi (which almost every race/class combo automaticaly starts with save a few erud and ogre combos), agi adds something like 1 AC for every 3 agi.

No thanks.

That's very true... as far as you take it. But you forget that AC isn't everything. ESPECIALLY for a leather class. Leather damage mitigation is very low, if you have 3k ac you're not going to mitigate damage half as well as a plate class with 1200ac. If your agility is high however, you will get the full benefit of your block/dodge skills, and your damage AVOIDANCE will be high. I would personally rather have AGI than AC any day (for a beastlord). Just think.. mob swings at you for a max of 600 damage.. you can mitigate that to 540, or dodge it completely...
RE: interesting
# Nov 06 2003 at 2:19 AM Rating: Default
Agi is easy to max alot of buffs out there that will get you close if not max. AC though soft cap of 1200 pre pop is easy to reach 3k ac is god in PoP tell me you have 6k hp buffed Max agi and 1200ac in PoE watch you get smoked by mobs that quad 900 if you get agro but 2k AC or better and defencive aa even with 75 agi you could last alot longer. ya agi mobs missing you sounds good but in reality even in silk AC and defencive aa are god my chanter has LR5 ID5 802ac buffed i notice a big difference when he has 682ac unbuffed in the amount of damage he takes.

The reccomended level is an actual tag on the item. The quest has rec level fifty on the write-up, but the item does not as it is not reccomended level 50. Also; it is possible to finish your epic under level 50... The npcs begin to talk at 46, but you can do all the hand ins even before then
