This was for sale on the Non-No Drop server FV for 300k, twinked a warrior with it and she procs at level 1. The ultimate twink weapon on that server. No level restrictions either.

I'm a 65 warrior and have had this weapon for a good amount of time. Honestly tis a nice shock item, show it to people and they get all jelious. But personally i regret winning it. The lifetap produces very little aggro and i actually find that wielding my red epic in the offhand that i produce more aggro. Also i must say that this weapon is only temporary. Soon i'll be getting me a BoC, Hategiver or some type of real aggro toy and i know that this sword will become a rarely used weapon for situations where i dont want aggro.

Many say that it should goto a ranger or bard cause they can benefit more from this. Honestly i agree, cause my job isnt to do damage, its to get the attention of a mob and to keep it. I would much rather wait for an aggro weapon. Specially if your guild works on DKP or if you have a loot council.

You can do LDoN's for Anger III aug and it would improve your agro just fine. This sword is one of the top 10 in the game to this day as far as stats go. I don't think you made a mistake... just inprove it some with that aug and you will fill a lot better about it.

Just a thought...

well cerntianly i'd hope your red war epic would generate more hate then this, it has a pure hate raise effect to its proc.

As for this weapon, its a VERY good warrior weapon. It has a mod'd proc frequency much like how the BoC and Ivory Hilted Sword from Poair are. Its a good ratio weapon for offhand. And a anger 3 augment could fix your aggro problem.

The real question is, what weapon are u using this with. Weapon combo setup is important.

As for a warrior dealing dmg. Dude your on drugs to think we can't deal dps. We have a awesome selection for weapons to chose from. I can almost firmly say there will be a A$$LOAD of times where you will not be tanking an this weapon would be great to be using.

An as stated, from GoD till SoL i'd place this around the top 15 best swords in be discover'd that is...

What do you want to know? I can tell you anything you want to know about this spawn and how to get him to pop.

If your guild is killing cursed why would a warrior offhand this? You can kill XTC for a hategiver for EB and the same 25 ac. Give this to a ranger or a rogue. Someone whos going to increase your guilds power with it in their hands not your LDON grouping skills. Bards offhand epic at this stage of the game, and thats already slow enough.
RE: Warrior?

Once again, look at the stats. This is a pretty decent bard item, as well. AC, STA, DEX, HP, INT and mana. The agi is nothing to sneeze at either even though that isn't really a primary stat for bards. The delay is slow but my bard is 65 with a 41% haste from VT plus songs so the 24 delay doesn't really matter. From what I've read the proc doesn't generate much, if any, agro. I would hope that the tanks in a guild taking down cursed would at least have the skills to take the agro away from of a 75 lifetap proc.

One big thing has been overlooked about this weapon: +15 dex
On the whole ranger vs warrior debate in this thread, (barring the fact that yes, 70% of raids at this lvl get rangers bow dmg out of the question due to mob placement) Archery improves with dex, therefore this would be a great ranger item seeing as how warrior's seldom solo, and ranger's solo bow kite all the time. This is important because warrior's will 90% of the time have someone in group to buff them almost to max on base stats such as str, dex, etc, so as a warrior, i'd have no problems letting this default to classes that could put it to better use.

Edit: and not to forget rogues, Dex is their big stat as well, but they're more in the area of seldom solo with the warriors, (coverring bases to avoid flamage, heh)

The high AC and HP on this weapon make it quite attractive for warriors IMO. Now that Lost Dungeos on Norrath is out, I get this blade out of my bank again, augmented it with the Anger III (Hate 600) proc you can buy in the Everfrost Peaks camp and got a very nice offhand weapon. I use it in combination with Blasphemous Blade of the Exiled (also augmented with Anger III) and have no big problems holding aggro anywhere.

Nah, Not that great of bard weapon IMHO And most Rogues Nowdays at this Lvl have BoT tower dagger in mainhand and epic in Offhand So most Rogues wont use it. It's a Great warrior/ranger weapon though.

i offhand this on my rogue, apart from emp sword, its 25sta 100hp with the lifetap is pretty nice.
# Jul 28 2003 at 3:24 AM Rating: Decent
Total rubbish.

For a start Archery is situational.... Get a mob in a wall (70% of fights) and bow = useless.

Any tank that had this in his offhand with a L65 ranger who has decent weapons will loose aggro to a ranger who forgets to jolt (forget is a joke, given that jolt is resisted 7/10)

At the level needed to get this most MT will or should have 2 x EB weapons or similar, else they will have a job on thier hands.

This would go to your tanks first, the stats / hp , proc and dmg/dly are all real nice, and somone posted about holding agro with it, no tank is going to use it in there main hand and 90% of tanks at this lvl are going to have an Enrageing blow item in there main hand , so a BOC and this would be a Great combo and unless somone is really power nukeing there is no way u should loose ago, and to all the rangers btw, your Bow dmg >> your melee dmg, most rangers at this lvl well the good ones all use bows,
RE: Warrior
# Jul 26 2003 at 3:54 PM Rating: Decent
Not to mention that a large amount of raid encounters dont allow bow damage due to mob placement.

Just got one of these, crit heals are awesome with spell casting fury. Also works better with Rizlona's flame (bard song), best crit heal so far: 177hp. Our tanks don't use these weapons, as a matter of fact I was the only one who bid (says the ranger). They are using BoC + Bloodfrenzy or BoC + Xanamech hammer mostly. Lifetap is way low aggy and with the new bow aggy nerf (rydda'dar summoned me while I was using trueshot last night) melee isn't always such a bad thing. This is a PREMIER ranger 1hs rangers, get one! Oh it's also +4 disease damage now and 18/24 not 17/24. Chance at 22/24 isn't bad ratio.

rangers bow damage is only better than their melee damage if they have AM3 and endless quiver. Before that bow dmg is not that great and hitting with weapons does far more damage. Who is to say that a ranger would have these AA's when they are raiding this and i know i wouldnt pass on this weapon if it dropped as the MT's in my guild are able to keep aggro easily with the weapons they have at the moment.

Many warriors in top guilds dual wield this bad boy and that other weapon that drops off this mob, "bloodfrenzy" In the end game it's not a matter of wanting to wield it cause it'll benifit you, but wanting to wield it cause it'll benifit your guild that your in. Loot like this will most likely be awarded, so Rangers, wait your turn :)

This is a nice Warrior weapon, definitely. However, lifetap DD isn't a very big taunt. So take a rather slow delay, add in a low-aggro proc, and you have a weapon that isn't *that* great for warriors. Sure, the stats and all are great, but a warrior's main job is to keep the aggro away from everyone else. This weapon wouldn't help them do that.
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 07 2002 at 6:05 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The last 2 of these bad boys that dropped for us went to a ranger and a bard..... so there :p
possibly best offhander for rangers
# Sep 17 2002 at 6:19 AM Rating: Default
Unless it gets changed, if a ranger uses aaxp to get healing adept ( i thnik ) there is a possibility to get a 150 heal from this. My ranger has spell casting fury 1 and I get crit blasts with my skybreaker ( 100 ). In an XP group our chanter booned our cleric and she was getting critical heals to herself with the life tap proc boon of garou has. So if this is actually true this weapon IMO is the best ranger offhander. especially since rangers are pretty low on list to recieve heals. Even if Im wrong the 24 delay in offhand is superb for agro controll and a low agro proc that heals.
Rogues can argue this same reason, however I personally think the bone chiller 14 17 is a better offhander for rogues. Bards I personally dont know what a Bard looks for in off hand so I cant comment for them. As for warriors most will be using 2 EB weapons or fast non EB proccing weapons when not in MT situation. However if a warrior would want this I can understand their cause. Looking at it from a benefit to whole guild though, I think rangers would weild this all day long mainly for what I listed above but it also merits 15 wis to add to their small mana pool already on top of the 80 additional mana.

Hmmm... with a 17/24 ratio and 4 disease dmg, wouldnt this blade be essentially 21/24? Think about it rangers.... this and Claw of Vyzh'dra..... oooooo
VI, please tell us again why SK's can't dual wield?
# Jun 16 2002 at 6:03 PM Rating: Default
It's disappointing that VI would give a one handed, high-ratio weapon with SK spell on it to a dual wielder. Especially after all their discussion about why SK's should not be allowed to dual- wield.

It's a 1hs, not a piercer. Cannot backstab with it. Heh, calm down there.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 04 2002 at 8:15 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) you can bs with a 1hs but ratio of weapon damage to BS damage is reduced
RE: ...
# Jul 14 2002 at 9:48 PM Rating: Decent
Actually, if you try to backstab with a non-piercing weapon in your primary hand you receive the following message:

You need a piercing weapon as your primary weapon in order to backstab!

That's been the way that it's worked for the two years that I've been playing my rogue, and I can't imagine it changing any time soon.
