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

These things are extremely rare. I got some today, but it's the first I've ever seen. I've killed hundreds of Gnolls in JP, this is the first I've seen.

(edit) It's been right at a month now and this time I counted. I've killed 458 more Gnolls in the JP Gnoll Caverns and last night I *finally* got a second one of these, so there's your odds. Both times they dropped off a Gnoll caster and I *think* it was a Curate both times.

Very rare it seems. Been doing 1 regular and 2 AA levels in the back cave (near barducks spawn). Got 3 int rings, countless sacks of rock, 3 bronze wrist thingies, a shield and some other stuff. Didn't see the knuckles, the only piece I could use for a twink :P
Got one last night!

I got one last night off the first mob I killed. His fist was glowing red a sign that he had the knuckles. All I have to say is this thing rocks great damage and delay and the 50pp proc goes off 2-3 time a fight for me. I guess I got very lucky. = )

Well, just had these drop last night off a Darkpaw Curate. Also been camping here for a few weeks on and off, just to get these, although they are decent exp. BUT, see one problem, there is no damage bonus on the ones I got. Everything else is the same, but no damage bonus shown. Guess I will be /petition to see what happened, unless they have bee **gasp** nerfed is a recent patch. But have been offered a lammie and a BD as a swap for them, even without the bonus showing. Guess cause these are as stated, a rare drop. (on Cazic Thule server)

Update to my post. Got them to my 44 monk, and the damage bonus does show, just at 6 vice 8. Few more levels and should be up to the bonus of 8 as shown above. Sorry for the misinformation
RE: Dmg Bonus
# Dec 03 2002 at 3:22 PM Rating: Decent
starting at level 28, monks will have a builtin damage bonus that will show up on any weapon they look at, this damage bonus will grow as they level, at 43 the damage bonus is 6.
If they look at a weapon that would normally have a damage bonus, the weapon will show the sum of the weapon plus the class bonus.
Since the picture is showing that the weapon has a damage bonus of 8, that would make me believe the monk using it is between 49 and 52.

Dmg bonus for 1h items is (level-25)/3. Example (28-25)/3=1 at 34 its (34-25)/3=3. Its different for 2handers just havent sat down to crunch numbers but i believe there are 3 scales depending on delay under 39 delay/40-59/ and 59+ delays the slower weapons getting a highers multiplier.
dly sucks?

I'm sorry but you people obviously need to take a look at monks and beastlords. This weapon has a grt dmg/dly. At lvl 60 a monk's fist are 14/26 for humans and 14/27 or iksars, beasts are fairly similar. so unless you are lvl 60 the dmg/dly on this outdoes your fists let alone with the proc. Also considering where this thing drops you have a much better chance of getting one than even a zekha's let alone the better ssrashza/vex/akheva weapons. Granted there are better 1hb's out there but aside from a jade mace, unless you are in some Hi end guild or have 100k sitting in the bank you are not going to find much better for h2h or 1hb.
As for the person that said on tunare a KD is only like 20, I play on tunare as well and that is the biggest typo in the world or a straight out lie. KD sells for 1 to 2k in the bazaar, occasionally you might find it for around 800, this though 1 less dmg would sell for at least 3k cause of the proc not to mention a KD is blunt and this is h2h which bump it up agian to prob 5 to 6k. Also, VI has made this thing WAY to rare. With the limited amount of weapons that are out there as it is, that are worth a damn, most people will prob never see this item. I've been fighting in the gnoll tunnels of JP killing mostly the war's and oracles for the past month now, at least 50hrs worth of time just killing and still havn't even met anyone that has seen it, let alone seen one myself.

Ok have about 12 hours in 4+ hour sittings here and still no knuckles. I checked back here to make sure that they were not Legends only. Oh well great place to solo and exp is excellent so I'll stay here some more.

The knuckles work great as an offhand companion to GSC. Especially since it is only 0.1 stone. Bought one in the Bazaar the other day at level 38, began to proc at 39!

This is a very nice upgrade from PSU, but rare to come by. I haven't seen one for sale on my server, Vazaelle, since I bought mine.

Good luck to all you looking for one...well worth it.

For 1handed weapons the formula is (level-25)/3
level 34 is (34-25)/3=3 level 37 is (37-25)/3=4. For 2handers it depends on level and delay of weapon (havent sat down to figure out formula yet)
RE: DMG Bonus
# Sep 10 2002 at 3:28 PM Rating: Decent
its basically level/skill based. individual items (generally, though i beleive that it CAN be variable) have the same damage bonus as other weaps of the same type (for the same player)

my rog gets same damage bonus whether he uses his epic or a crappy rukgus sticker.

i beleive that the bonus works differently on 2hers though
RE: DMG Bonus
# Sep 30 2002 at 10:08 PM Rating: Decent
Don't forget, delay of a weapon also effects the dmg bonus. I've noticed the higher the delay, the higher the dmg bonus.
RE: DMG Bonus

"delay of a weapon also effects the dmg bonus"
but only for two handers.

Spent about 4 hours there yesterday. I could solo everything but the warriors as a lvl 46 beastlord ie curate, healers, oracles, (regular)dp gnolls, and the necros. After I gathered some guildmates we couldn't pull them fast enough. They hit for up to 111. We got a pair of bear fang gloves but no knuckles. Exp and plat was good so we'll try again soon.

Just a tidbit of info, Ranger in my guid who was camping these guys and the immediate area for 2 weeks came away with a weapon that was 23/28

I know sounds insane but he confirmed 3 times. Think I'm gonna ask for a screenshot though Smiley: wink

Graphic and Drop
# Aug 09 2002 at 1:45 PM Rating: Excellent
The Graphic is a red glowing fist (a'la glowing black stone or essence of Dol)

You can see the graphic on the Gnolls that are carrying it. I got one from a Gnoll Curate. They are little Cleric Gnolls that CH.

I spent about 8 hours spread out over 3 days camping this or the Bear Fanged glove. I looted both of them within 10 minutes.

These gnolls are soooo easy to kill when slowed.

Has anyone seen this drop and if so from who. I have been killing warriors for a week now and have not seen one.

As far as i know there are only a small line of h2h weapons that are obtainable after the PSU
its like u have Kasheks katar > GIU > Fist of Iron > Zekhas katar > BBU > Mythril knuckles > Fist of Rock >WHU
if WHU = 1k and Fist of rock = 2-3k (on xev server) then this would go for like 4k in my opinion, if u want to do h2h, and have this graphic i would assume it has, as well as a 50dd proc at lvl 40.
No stats would only hinder sales slightly, it is a look alot go for, and fist of rock regardless of 7/18 dmg dly, sells better then a wu stick which has a 83dd proc, and both go for around 2-3k. I know i got the bear fanged glove and sold it moments later for 1k easy.
I use fist of Iron and zekhas katar, and wouldnt mind tryin fist of Iron with this in off hand, I would pay 4k for one, will prolly just go hunt one myself thou.
All just my opinions, prices are the average on Xev server,

Only 700pp on tunare a KD goes for like 20...the stats on them are 14/28
these are very similar...i would love to use that
Decent Weapon

For the level this appears to be fairly decent for H2H.

The problem that many beastlords, myself included, is that from the levels of 30 on to pre-planar and pre-raid levels, there are not a great deal of H2H weapons out there to increase the Beastlord's, sans pet, damage out put.

After the PSU, the next "obtainible" H2H weapons out there are the WHU and the Twilight Quest Claws. The WHU which falls off the named Zelniak in the Caves of DS drops it very very rarely, and there are several people out there STILL, since SoL release, looking for all the pieces to complete the Twilight H2H weapon quest.

For beastlords, most stick to centi warhammers and other exceptional 1hb well into their late 40's. This is a small step towards making the Beastlord H2H weapons worth using. The H2H weapon that drops off Fireclaw has a nice proc but horrible ratio for the lvl to attain. This one, with the proc, seems like a worth while camp or purchase for the lvl

Now come out with 2 more about same risk/reward so that this doesn't become over priced.
When does it proc?

Anyone know at what lvl it proc's?

#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 29 2002 at 8:51 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) FYI, if you click the name of the effect it opens a link that tells you what it does. But just to let you know, it's a 50HP DD proc. Good luck getting it if you want it!

Would make a decent combo with a Stave of Shielding *shrug*.

Nope, it would make for a bad combo. First, the Ratio isn't that nice, but most importantly, the delay is too high.
RE: Decent
# Jul 30 2002 at 8:34 AM Rating: Default
Too bad delay has no effect on DPS until you reach higher levels. This is a good weapon for people below 50. Ratio is what matters, and if the weapon procs at a low level that's more damage on top of the ratio. A 10/20 weapon is no better than a 20/40 weapon (talking about 1h weapons) until you get a high enough damage bonus to make a lower delay worthwhile.

Actually, for BST/MK a higher delay/damage weapon is great for grouping with a tank, as you can put out more damage and not pull aggro from your tank. Good weapon to use for damage, but you'll have to watch aggro when it procs. I wish more tanks would learn to go for lower delay/less damage and get haste gear, and let the monks and beastlords crank our the damage.

What is the graphic and rarity of drop?

The delay on this kinda bites... (personally I think even 26 would be better...) but the proc seems nice and still I wouldn't mind toting one around for keeping the damage decent and h2h skill up... Actually might take a damage hit just to use something faster. Who knows.
