After my Mistmoore adventure wiped, one day, we were sitting outside the crypt for something or other, I don't remember. Anyway, I decided that we weren't safe, all naked and unarmed, so I went to the Nybright sisters and dispatched them bravely with my hand-to-hand skills (which are now up to FOUR at level 56), and took their rusty weapons back to my group. While we waited, we slaughtered many faeries and orcs, before deciding to take on bigger things and dueling one another. Suprisingly no one was harmed too badly, and we bravely went back into the crypt and probably won the adventure.
where the hell do i get this rare drop?

wow, sure glad they listed every single zone where we can get one of these bad boys. Because you know... I was wondering where this was.

do tarnished weapons sell more to vendors than rusty ones?????

RE: rtur
# Jul 03 2002 at 5:27 PM Rating: Excellent
They sell for slightly more. Using sharpening stones to make tarnished weapons is great at low levels to both make slightly more money and build up your smithing skills without wasting training points.

Why are we comenting on rusty weps anyway?
Whatever it takes

I was in High Keep for 15 levels and let me tell ya, the punks in there were ninja looting these like the wind. All that was left on the miserable Pickclaws was the crappy Bronze Armor and Fine Steel weapons. I just wasn't fast enough to collect the real loot, the Rusties. Remember, stats can be deceiving, the sheer style points of giving your foes lockjaw makes the Rusty series weapons the best in the game. ***** ratio, the graphics alone make me want to discard my Centi LS/Crystallized Sword combo and get a pair of these bad boys.
