Funny thing, Emp did not appear to be wielding it when he went live. Some reason, I thought I recalled his graphic showing the weap if he was to drop it. Apparently I was mistaken, quite pleasantly so :)

One of the things SOE did well in the Luclin expansion is weapon graphics. Even the elementals in Twilight Sea, trash mobs in several zones, they drop intricate looking weapons. This sword is easily one of the prettiest swords in the game, plus, for people still raiding this zone, it's a great weapon to use, very high AC for a sword at this level

jus got 1 thing to say . rangers will never replace warriors as tanks , however as a 70 ranger 371 aa's i tank riftseekers named when warriors arent logged on. i do this easily not on the brink of oh god is the heal gonna land and do so without wep shield or tricks. so all the who is better at what is a waste. build your toon as well rounded as you can and quit trying to be number one when haveing the ability to multi role is so much better to get groups with.

I've had rangers tank riftseekers for me several times. I know for a fact that one had significantly less than 377 AA at the time. It really all depends on your gear. If the ranger has Qvic armor or better, tanking riftseekers is no real problem. I suspect it could probably be done in Time gear, although I have not tried.

Quite boring here,and have nothing to do now,so wanna post this as as Ranger's point of view:

1st This 2h is only useful for players who dont have EP flag nor GoD higher tier(Well,needless to say,EP GoD weapon are clearly MUCH better than this)

2nd For those who still in SoL or PoP tier 2 players,the 54 AC on this sword is the stats cuased argument(Yea,if all you need is melee DPS,BoT weapon:Great staff of four wind is an easily-obtainable weapon for RNG/SK/PAL,and SK can get another 2h staff fron BoT too.PAL...hmm)

3rd Knight classes need AC the most,we Ranger can understand that.But this sword is the best weapon to Ranger too(Well,it produce the highest DPS before entering EP GoD,please note this 2-hander has higher DPS than any dual-wielding combination before we hit EP.And the proc is so cool,our only Lifetap proc two-hander if you can understand that.)

4th Bow,the pain for Ranger.Honestly speaking,as a 511 AA EP Ranger,I hate Archery.I would rather fighting with my melee weapon than using my ranged attack Bow.EQ dont have autofire hotkey for archery,that mean either we have to keep hitting the keyboard to fire every arrow or we have to use gamepad.Its annoying I must say.Good DPS Archery is,I agree.But I hate it,really hate it.

5th Ranger--a class who have higher DPS than PAL/SK but has much worse mitigation than plate tanks.The Sword of Ssra is great for both DPS and tanking ability for Ranger as it does to you Knights.So dont take the high AC part as the standpoint to support that Knight should get this first.Give us Ranger a equal chance as you for obtaining a good weapon.I can assured you,we Ranger do need some extra AC since we do tanking when things goes wrong sometimes.

In the same situation and a nice bow dropped I would assume that it would go to a ranger first warrior second and sk/pally third. If a pally or sk tried to get that bow, all the rangers would be up in arms. Why should it not be the case in reverse? A 2hs like this is more beneficial to a Pally or SK

LuposF says: "Sure it will almost always be resisted about tier 2 mobs".
This is incorrect. Go to the Lucy's link , and click on the effect. It clearly states that this is unresistable. Also, I have one, and it never gets resisted when it procs, never.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 24 2004 at 11:56 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I got myself one of these bad little toys recently. All of you fooking noob knigths crying over it need to stfu. there are weapons with much better ratio/effect than this that are pal/sk ONLY. TO put the myth aside, rangers DO tank. I have done it many times myself. With the speed and number of hits a ranger can produce when DWing, using a 2hs is a MUCH better option for tanking. I have all 2hs AA that rangers are given, and i still eat about 1/3 the ripostes that i do when using DW and tanking. You idiots saying that a ranger is on the bottom of the list for a 2hs and that they should only be using a bow, you need to go and cry to momma. A ranger with a schweet ratio 2hs is better dps than a pal/sk could ever hope to be. In many cases a pal/sk WON'T be tanking higher end mobs anyway, they are just dps anywhere above tier 3(there ARE exceptions to the rule, but not too many). A pal/sk should stick with some of the sick weapons that have rather powerful aggro enducing procs, things like for instence. As a ranger that tanks, i would love the proc. Sure it will almost always be resisted about tier 2 mobs, but the aggro still hits even if it is resisted. I am tired of idiot noobs saying that a ranger shouldn't be using 2hs. Rangers get a cap of 250 skill in 2hs for a reason.... Yes, rangers aren't the best tanks, but we can hold our own. Using a 2hs rather than DW 1hs, we take alot less damage from ripostes. All in all.....KNIGHTS NEED TO STFU AND STOP WHINING ABOUT LOSING THE LOTTO TO THE QUIET RANGER WITH MORE POINTS!!!!! /flame off

/flame on

Alright, let's set a couple of things straight...

A ranger, with a 2hs, is not a better dps than an equally geared/AA'ed/buffed SK/Pally. I severly DOUBT that would happen. COmparable? Yes. WIll the ranger always parse out lower? No. But he won't be better all the time, or probably even most of the time.

You idiots saying that a ranger is on the bottom of the list for a 2hs and that they should only be using a bow, you need to go and cry to momma.

I explain you saying this, by you also saying this:

I have all 2hs AA that rangers are given

You obviously haven't gotten your bow AA's. Rangers, with a bow, are scary DPS, critting left and right. A ranger with a decent bow and the bow AA's will outdo a ranger with a good 2HS and those AA's any day.... you're a RANGEr... note the word RANGE in your very name.. you're meant to be a class that wanders around, attakcing things from a distance. It's what you do best.

Yes, rangers aren't the best tanks, but we can hold our own

Holding you're own and being a good tank aren't the same thing. A pally/sk will always be amuch better tank than an equally geared/AA'ed ranger. Period. End of discussion.

The end of your own post points out your own logical flaw. YES the ranger with more AA's MAY outdo a pally/sk, but, in the long run, the SK/pally are better at what they do, and you're better at what you do, which is shooting things from REEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLYYYYYYYYY far away.

Now get back to doing your job, bow boy.

Ohh, and just for fun, why did the chicken cross the road? The ranger ran across it to get away from him.

RE: rangers crying again?
# Sep 08 2004 at 7:14 AM Rating: Decent
I agree completly, I am tired of people draging out a time ranger with 300+ AA's and showing he can tank just as well as me, an ornate and LDoN geared Pally with 100 AA's. But if a Ranger wants to bid on this he is free to he is just going to have to pay at least 1 more DKP than I have.

It says that the proc on this is is a type of Life-Tap. Is that true or did they mess that up a bit?

Also, how often does this thing proc (assumeing you don't have the AA put up to increase weapons proc rates)?? It would be cool if it proced as often as a Cleric's hammer of souls procs....but very few things do.

I think his point is that there are a BUNCH on Pally and SK one handed weapons with great ratios. There are not quite as many that are usable by dual wielders. Its a good item but if you are a knight there are probably quite a few better items out there that will cost significantly fewer DKP.

My guess is that most knights won't want to bid on this item because it just won't be a good DKP value for them.
RE: No Paladins
# Sep 08 2004 at 7:08 AM Rating: Decent
Itís quite clear you have NO idea what you are talking about. Pallys and SKs will almost always use a 2 handed weapon, not only do we do more damage with a 2 handed but the high delay cuts down on ripstops than can kill you fast in PoP and GoD. My guild is not yet into the elemental planes but are now farming the Emperor and Lord Inquisitor gearing up for VT but this or the BBB is what I am saving my DKP for.

Now you said there are fine one hand weapons but there are 2 reasons that the 2 handed weapons will out damage 1 handed, number 1 is that knights damage AA's a geared to 2 handed weapons. The next reason is the damage bonus, unless the damage bonus on the one hander is twice that of the 2 hander and the damage bonus applied to one handers is 13 across the board. To calculate the damage potential you take 2x damage + bonus / delay. Aside form the damage potential look at the stats on the weapon 50ac 20sta and 125hp plus the 100pt LT all things that Knights who are notoriously low on HP need. So basically until a knight can get either a SEWS or a FPM and a time+ shield this is one of the best investments a knight could make.

Berserker wieldable post GoD.

#28 best DPS weapon in the game for Berserkers. (Our epic is #36 -- yes, this is better DPS than the Berserker epic.)

That info comes from Sethron's excellent DPS list:
Dropped recently and went to... A Ranger !!
# May 25 2004 at 7:47 PM Rating: Decent
Yup; Guild dropped emp about our 5th time now; 2hs dropped for the second time (1st went to SK) the Ranger was currently Dual Weilding Claw of Vyz Dra in main and Render of souls in offhand , but he had more dkp than any other knight/war or ranger in guild. Went for it and got it

A couple of knights moaned but got on with it. The ranger has used it in the past few weeks and is doing awsome dps; He has all necesary AAs for extra damage with 2 handers etc He can get up to almost the same Dps as his archery (non disc) Which proves this fine 2hs is good in the hands of a ranger

As for the "Warriors can use this because in PoP you want to use a 2hander to cut down riposte" crap; My guild had killed emp first after we had killed a few pop bosses. Now were in EPs and looking to start clearing up EP gods. Not once has our guilds MT used a 2hander and not once have we had a problem.... Although hes wanting his Blade of War now badly :p

As for the ranger bit, see my post above, smacking around some complete idiot.

As for the riposte factor, I agree with you that it's not as much an issue, however, certain mobs a 2hander is better due to DS. I know Fennin Ro is one of these, as his DS is supposedly, never encountered it myself, but eventually I will, frightening, and can pul a hurting on your cleric's mana.

Just my opinion, but I'd give this weapon to one of your main tanks. If your killing emp, your nearing pop advancement. Main Tanks do a lot better with 2hs on bosses in VT and PoP due to the riposite factor. Just my thought.

P.S. Who cares about aa's and life taps? It's a cool sword for anyone that can use it. Let it go man......

first off erenoa you are very free with the insults shows both a lack of inteligence and general civility. (either very young or just a jerk)
second you did not address the basic facts of why if what you said were true about both the soul abrasion and theft of life aa and why on a lower lifetap proc it would not work on a much higher life tap proc.
you did nothing but insult which is fine as for my lvl im a lvl 62 sk with 50aa a lvl 65 shammy with 150 aa and a lvl 62 cleric with 55 aa. (o and as for ebay HAHA No i worked my *** off for it) so yes i know my classes and capabilitys very well.
can you say the same ?.
o also know that no ranger has the ability to pull the agro off of my shammy when he slows dots and nukes unlike pallys sk and war.
nor can they pull agro off from clerics with heal agro.
so no you as a ranger class still fall last on the list for a knights sword after all the tank classes.
then and only then should a ranger get this type of weapon.
and yes truth does hurt.
this only goes back to my first statement WHO CAN MOST benifit from this kind of a weapon not who can use it or not.. who gets the best benifit from it.
knight classes then war berz then ranger.
from your posts you seem very ignorant of certain facts and untill you play the class you have no room to insult or chastise.
on a side note i respect the ranger class and hold most rangers in high reguard.
any one that can hit and crit in the high 2k to 4k with a bow is a very great addition.
and no ranger can use a 2hs and get that kind of damage.
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 27 2004 at 3:04 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Heh, no ranger can keep aggro off your shammy and cleric? Then they aren't trying. Why do you think rangers are given a line of spells to decrease aggro? It has been shown time and time again, that SK's and Pallies don't have a chance of getting aggro off a Ranger who doesn't want to give it up. But in general, we do want to give it up, after all: A) Rangers are a chain class, and don't mitigate as well as the plate classes, and B) Yeah, Rangers do put out excellant DPS with a bow, which requires that we not be tanking. And with the most recent patches, the bow works regardless of whether or not the target is in the wall, how many Players/pets/mezzed mobs are in the way. And you can even stare at the floor while doing all this. So if I can use my bow you can be darn sure that I am. But when my duties include tanking, off tanking adds, root parking, etc, then I will definitly have a 2 hander out for damage + aggro. Because while archery is great damage, it is also low aggro.

I am tired of this Displacer.

----Yes you are right,Soul Abrasion DID(like you said)work on Serpent Bite and turn it to be a 250 DMG lifetap.Great...

----Yes,you are right.Leech Curse is a SK AA.It
will work on Serpent bite too.

----Yes you are right.Shadowknight should get this first since it will crit healing 1000ish HP for Sk with Soul Abrasion+SCF+ToL.Sk can use it better than the rest of us.

----Yes you are right.I always thought Ranger is the aggro King in EQ except Chain-Tashaning ENC.Well,turns out snare and Immolate actually dont have any aggro to mob .

----Yes,you are right.Those tanking in PoP Ssra VT are just my dream.I will be dead in one sec if I really try tanking there.

----Yes you are right.Archery can crit for 4000 damage in one shot.I forgot to train my skill from guild master,thats why my Stonewood can only crit 2300ish instead of 4000...

----Yes you are right.I will pass all items from now on since every one of them has AC higher than 20 and Plate tank will benefit the most from them.

----Yes you are right.I lie to you my Highness.I was actually playing the Beta-test version of EQ.And those 315 AA on my Ranger is the result I modfified the data from client-side and cheat the Test server.

----Yes,you are right.Newbie should not be the word to describe your greatness.I apologize.Thank you for correcting me.I am so ashamed,I wont reply again to any of your precious,un-doubtable posts in my whole pathetic life.I am such a newbie,sorry oh The Almighty 200 AA PoMS King.

PS:Sorry to other ppl looking for 2h info here.If any BM saw this thread,feel free to delete all my posts.Sorry again for these useless troll flame <BOW>
