Funny Looking

Equiped it looks like a large lead pipe flarred at both ends.

Anyway. 18 peeps. Down in no time. Worst part if people that keep hitting the Silly Gnome and agroing him. Bring a Memblur chanter to settle the boy down.

There is NO special after quest. All this whole run does is let you into the factory. Basically if you fight in PoI enough you end up looting the Copper Node, Wires, and stuff needed to trigger so get some friends and trigger the event.

Its a fun run.

the weapon driveshaft is what u have to give to the gnome. because he asked u to collect things for and he needs to finish building the "Weapon" and the driveshaft u have to give to the gnome
once u do it will be complete and he will give u another quest to gatehr the rest of the stuff he needs gather that and the weapon will be complete!

No, its just a decent caster 2hb. The WEAPON is Xanamech.

The other quest in POI is to kill Manetic Behemoth, and that does not require this.

I think i have finally figured out what the driveshaft is for if it works i will let u guys know but it has something to do wit the gnome u protect

Guess it didn't work...

Did xana with 22, average level 63,

If ya want effect but dont wanna give up 2 hand slot use this:

Only way the Weapon's Driveshaft is better is if your a necro who needs the 20 STA =/
This makes me forget about wanting to get my epic

Got this one from raiding the poi dragon last week, and i am very pleased with it! I was just thinking about starting my epic, but now i am just not interested anymore! All that hassle just for mana free haste is not worth it for me atm. Dragon is not hard to bring down with a good guild (30 peeps, average lvl 62), and its a fun raid too imo.

Turns out I got this and one week later it poofed from my inventory. GM came to replace it but didn't know why it poofed because the logs were screwed up. Anyway before she replaced it she asked me if I had tinkered on it yet. So I am partially convinced this is part of a much bigger item that's tinkered. :)

oh, that would make sense, it is "the weapons drive-shaft" hmmm.. could be interesting once somebody finds out what it makes.
RE: GM Giveaway
# Aug 22 2003 at 9:48 AM Rating: Decent
Or it could just be that "the weapon" is the dragon??

Aye that sounds about right, either that or its jsut some admin's idea of a joke for FF7 fans!!;)

all focus effects stack with numbered focus items and mage summons. this effect is a completely stacking 15% spell haste on evocaction spells
RE: actually

Actually, that's incorrect. Focus effects of the same type work much like worn melee haste: only the highest value is used. If you have a 15% item spell haste, 15% numbered-focus (Spell Haste IV, for example) spell haste, and 15% mage item haste, you don't get 45% spell haste. You get 15% spell haste (the highest value). If you have a 15% spell haste from this item, and an Affliction Haste item (33% spell haste for DoTs), and you cast Funeral Pyre, it receives 33% spell haste. However, if you had this item and a mana preservation focus, then both would take effect (provided the spell meets the requirements for both effects).

Also, this is not only useful for evocation spells. Any detrimental spell with a minimum casting time of 3 seconds makes use of this.
Honestly, just find a mage..
# Nov 25 2002 at 6:33 PM Rating: Decent
If you're worried about the effect, than just find a mage and have him summon you his lvl 61 Ring. it has Effect: Naki's Superior Pernicity.
Free for you and cheap for them. Throw it on your finger, and save yourself the hastle of messing around with your primary/secondary item.

This sounds very much like it is a part of something bigger....

Why on earth would you...
# Oct 26 2002 at 4:58 PM Rating: Decent
Why on earth would you use epic for effect then this? other than spell haste you still get more mana from epic+phenocryst focus than this. 2hblunt remember, takes up two slots.... other than spell haste no reason to equip over epic.
RE: Why on earth would you...
# Oct 26 2002 at 10:23 PM Rating: Good
Because, silly, on short fights like pop fights usually are where wizard mana isn't an issue, this lil item ups their dps by 15%. +15% dps > more mana
RE: Why on earth would you...
# Nov 16 2002 at 7:53 AM Rating: Default

15% extra damage when you need to kill something fast. That's what it's all about.

a_gnome_wizard_01's p.e.n.i.s. size has increased! (15%).

If the little guy faints after casting Ice Comet, you'll know why: lack of blood to the brain.

Hell, I'm a chanter and *I* would take it and use it, if there were no wizards in sight. Groups would hate me 'cause I couldn't resist playing with it.

umm dragon
# Oct 26 2002 at 10:09 AM Rating: Default
Hello .. did you ever think that "The Weapon" was the dragon you just killed? to get this driveshaft? Let's think.. the gnome is making a machine to defend himself... the dragon is the defense.. the weapon here is a driveshaft that is inside the dragon... Thus The Weapon's Driveshaft would be in reference of the dragon (smacks her head on the keyboard). Quit making this harder than it is ROFL
Rallos Zek

In the Atlas: the Maps of Myrist, It says that the Gnomes of the Plane of Innovation are making a Weapon of great power for Rallos Zek. Maybe this is one of the pieces.

hey, i dont mean to be mean, but, Skiggaret? Is your warriors stuff serious??? cause im thinkin its a big joke, and if it is, lol, but if it isnt then i'll start crying, i mean, one of my alts (lvl 7 bard) has better stuff...
RE: Rallos Zek
# Apr 27 2003 at 3:52 PM Rating: Decent
no, actually i believe the weapon they are refering to is Manaical Behemoth, for Drunder, Fortress of Zek (AKA Plane of Tactics) flag. good theory though

And so it begins?

"The Weapon's Driveshaft"... Anyone else thinking that this is the first piece of an ultimate int-caster end-game-epic?

We'll see. If someone finds something in one of the later planes called "The Weapon's xxx", we can be pretty sure.

I bet its a Caster Only Car, or Motorcycle ;)
