Just got this on Mangler. You will laugh and think it is absurd that i LOOTED it on a Druid of all things. I just started a druid on this server in pop and they were doing some old raids to gear up alts. No one wanted this but, the other side of why someone might want this is it's both primary and secondary. it's a nice filler for the ac 25, 100hp/mana/end, 25 str, until you can get a better piece in that slot. That is the only reason I looted it for now.

Some of the comments in this thread are hilarious and the fact some people are posting replies to other people that posted YEARS ago and think their corrections are ever going to be read is super funny too.
Still drops

One dropped off a robe in Goo One's room the other night actually. You could see it equipped as the mob came into the room. My ranger picked it up for fun.
Drop Rate?
# Nov 01 2004 at 1:36 AM Rating: Decent
Any drop rate info on these?

We've cleared out VT twice now and yet to see a single slaughter weapon off any Eom or named. They get nerfed or just uber uber rare?

VT bane

My guild is in VT. Bane weapons are god looted. Which means Raidleader calcutes who is at the raids most often and who the weapon would best help the guild benefit by giving it to them.. I got the Great sword of Slaughter the other night.. Bane works only agaisnt the 4 arms and robe mobs in VT.. Any pally or SK should not ever be given a 1hands bane weapon.. 1handers best benefit is rogues rangers and warriors.. @hand Bash best benefit monks.. other 2 handers are best for Pally and SK's.. Bane damage stacks with weapon current ratio.. meaning this weapon posted here is a 17/18 IF magic checks then it is a 18/18 per that swing.. the two handers are 65/40's Magic check 70/40's I hit on average 300-450.. That is on average not what i can max hit for.. Also for those that dont know Rocks and Blobs in VT are not hit by the bane.. so have your other regural weapon in an easy to switch out spot for them. BTW we are on a DKP ( merit) system but always god loot stuff like bane . I personaly dont know anyone who would use thier points to obtian a bane that is useable in only one zone. Nor do i know of any guild that has ever made it into VT and still rolls on loot /boogle

have your other regural weapon in

Note, I did not say boogle (Boo-gle)

Where might one find that Regural weapon at? All I can find in my hunts and even checking bazaar are the regular ones?

#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 27 2003 at 9:20 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Akheva bane weapons are the only thing that can hit the emperor. Other than Spells. If you are gonna kill the Emp.. you better have your tanks carrying Bane Weaps.. or they will never hit him.

I can tell your not in VT, and if your character is, then welcome to ebay. Emp is not akevan, he is ssra. You need to farm green metal in the mines and combine them with weapons that drop from the elite guards. Emp can only be hurt by shissar bane weapons and nukes.

Secondly, why are earth would you give your tanks bane weapons? Sure it's cool for them to do dps, but I would give them a BoC or a Blood Frenzy (or even now something that has taunt procs). Your tanks job is to keep the emperor on him because the emperor procs a 95% hate decrease. What good is your tank if he's not gonna hold aggro?

Lastly....please do not post unless your sure you know what your talking about. Giving people no information is better than giving them mis-information.

Yeah... Akheva bane pwns the Emperor...

Which'll come in really handy after you've been to VT and are ready to take him on...

Does not exist

This item is incorrect. "Greater Mace of Slaughter" drops off random Eom mobs in VT, but there is nothing called simply "Mace of Slaughter." It has exactly the same stats, so I can see that it was just a mistake on the poster's part.

On a side note - these DO get randomed. Most guilds in VT are on merit systems, but items like this that aren't really an "upgrade" but more of a toy (and no one in their right mind would waste merit on this) are usually just randomed.

Not bad at all...

I think this isnt a bad item looking it can actualy be a 18/18 weap if both the Bane and Magic Dmg hit.
Get real
# Aug 25 2002 at 4:43 PM Rating: Default
Ok, for real guys. It's a stinking weapon, hell, there isn't even a picture saying it's even REAL real. But i believe it is real, and besides, the weapon goes to who won it on a roll, pure casters, Pfft. They got magic, use it. I'd say this makes a nice Shadowknight weapon for those who like to hang out in a zone forever to get AA exp.

Bah you need to get real

Guilds that will be getting this do not roll. Most use point systems, or will award it to whoever it would allow to help the guild the most with, we have not rollded on a raid item in like a year and a half.

Bane damage
# Aug 22 2002 at 7:58 PM Rating: Decent
actually, with the bane damage, this weapon should be 17/18, if the higher up weapon's bane damage acts the same as lower level bane damage. it should ADD that much damage, not make it that much. my shaman (barb) has that symbol thing i play with from time to time, and hits for 19 against undead (weapon is 6/32 +3bane damage). maybe im wrong, never had a weapon with bane damage higher than the normal damage, so maybe it works differenly.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 21 2002 at 2:57 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I can't see a caster getting this, however...the one person who does get this would probably be on cc patrol the entire time in VT after looting this...
Special Uses
# Aug 21 2002 at 11:01 AM Rating: Default
There are certian high level mobs that can ONLY be hit by bane weapons, and ONLY the bane damage will be counted for how much damage you do. That means when you're beating on a creature of greater akhava type this weapon is 16/18. If you're beating on something else its 1/18 +1magic.
RE: Special Uses
# Aug 22 2002 at 3:48 PM Rating: Default
I don't know of any greater akhavien that is immune to physican attacks. Even Aten can be hit my normal weapons, I believe. This is just a nice weapon in like half of Vex Thal. Not required anywhere.
RE: Special Uses
# Dec 29 2002 at 10:02 PM Rating: Decent
iirc the Aten Ha Blob cant be hit by the bane effects of these weapons. I always was a caster, though.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 21 2002 at 9:40 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) C'mon people, this couldnt be more obvious. This is a weap for the caster...the one who sits back and DOES NOT engage in melee.
RE: People...
# Aug 21 2002 at 4:55 PM Rating: Decent
What is wrong with you people this is a melee weapon for VT, the home of the Ahkeva, 16/18 ratio on a weapon is awesome, no you couldn't use it anywhere else but at the lvl to be in VT in the first place that is the last of your worries
RE: People...
# Aug 21 2002 at 10:57 AM Rating: Default
What casters want this except wizzies, necro's and chanter who can't use this item at all.
RE: People...
# Aug 21 2002 at 3:31 PM Rating: Default
Hmmm dont see any pure casters who can use it. maybe the bane damage for thoses mobs that only get hurt by bane weps huh?
RE: People...
# Aug 21 2002 at 12:40 PM Rating: Default
maybe a mage..=)
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 21 2002 at 8:24 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) So youre saying if SKs had better, they would award this bad boy to a monk, woo woo! :D MONK ITEMMMMMM! 1stone WOOOO WOOO ITs a MONK ITEM ahahahaha /bonk

Bane GREATER Akhevan onyl works on Vex Thal mob's, it will not work on regular AKhevan's, IE Toilers
# Aug 20 2002 at 7:09 PM Rating: Good

Yes Trev you are correct, but lets start the old arguement on how the numbers stack just for fun! happens on all these items.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 20 2002 at 6:09 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post)
# Aug 20 2002 at 5:24 PM Rating: Good
This is OBVIOUSLY one of those "Certain Times" items/weapons Verant spoke of. Against anything BUT an Akheva, this is merely a 1/18 with Uber stats...but against an Akheva, it becomes 17/18 with +1 Magic Damage.

A Uber item no what, it's best weilded against things in Akheva...'cause elsewhere...yeah
RE: Bahahah!
# Aug 20 2002 at 11:46 PM Rating: Default
honestly i see a SK new to VT getting first dibs on this. other than that most of those that have been in VT awhile will have slightly better for this sort of mob

RE: Bahahah!
# Jan 26 2003 at 10:17 AM Rating: Default
I'm saying save the one handers for dual wielders in an environment that is DPS sensitive. This guy alone drops 2 handers that are 65/40with bane dmg calculated. THAT'S where knight get dibs.

and to paraphrase someone you are familiar with,
"Learn about class dmg before you post something so stupid again."
RE: Bahahah!
# Aug 22 2002 at 10:28 AM Rating: Default
Shred, Eater of souls
It appears you do not know anything about the mobs this weapon is intended to kill. You want all of the melees to have this. it would be a 16 dmg 18 delay item for the greater akheva.

Learn about bane dmg before you post something so stupid again.
