To bad monks can't use 1hs. I'd give him this and a Gnoll Hide Lariat.

They are fun and all, but I found that a tentacle whip makes a pretty handy pet weapon for my sk pet. now that I'm 52+ I get mage weapons when I can but these things were very nice and kept me from having to sacrifice my hp to heal my pet.

I looted it off of Drelzna
2 whips = twice the fun
# Dec 30 2002 at 7:31 PM Rating: Decent
I use these, sometimes, with my 28 warrior. they are really fun to play around with. never use them if i'm killing in a group for exp, but when i'm just fart'n around with guildies i whip these bad boys out, or when i pl with my war... taunt is a greaty way to pl... but my ripost with my regular weapons can sometimes steal kills..

theses things have their uses even beyond the newbie lvls... just not many... great weapon

haven't yet been to split paw to get the gnoll hide whip... but probably just as fun....

Honestly if I wanted to push through to level 10, id most likely use one of these also. I think a pet with duel weild - Gnoll hide and a Tentacle Whip... oh yea. I can see this as being awesome to build up a low level character. The only time I really do that is just to get through the early levels. Shrug. who cares. If it procks at 1 thats scary, if it procks at 3 thats still killer for a noob.... anywhere under 5 is pretty nice of an effect.

Got this whip this morning as a drop from the Guard Captian in NK as a reward for the corrupt guard wristband quest. That was kind of a surprise...anyone else received something like this from him?

Just did the corrupt guard quest in WK. I too got this whip as a reward. Been playing with it and it is a lot of fun. It isn't worth diddly in a fight with my lvl MOBs, but when showing off to the noobs, it is great.

# Sep 03 2002 at 11:42 AM Rating: Decent
yeah I got one too off the captain sold it to some newbie in the bazaar for 15pp
Rare drop.......HA!
# Sep 23 2001 at 11:27 PM Rating: Decent
I got one of these the first time I killed one, then had two more drop after that the Hilt of a Nobleman was harder for me to get and it is sapost to be a uncommon drop.

This does proc at lvl 1 I made a newbie and tried this out worked great.
Whip = Ghoulbane
# Sep 15 2001 at 3:22 AM Rating: Default
For some reason my character's attack stat is the same whether I use the tentacle whip or Ghoulbane. Whip is faster so I've been using it when I want to keep mobs aggroed on me.
RE: Whip = Ghoulbane
# May 06 2002 at 7:28 PM Rating: Decent
Because the whip & Ghoulbane both use the 1hs skill, which (along with your Offense skill) makes up your ATK rating, your ATK rating is the same for both weapons... equip any 1hs weapon and your ATK will stay the same.
RE: Whip = Ghoulbane
# Feb 21 2003 at 10:57 PM Rating: Decent
Not exactly, Strength also affects ATK.

usage VS level
# Aug 01 2001 at 1:32 AM Rating: Decent
For such a wimpy proc this weapon is useless as anything more than a pet weapon unless your a newbie, and even then you would have to buy it. To kill tentecle terrors at levels 25+ you would expect a better weapon for your fight.
Do these still drop
# Jun 04 2001 at 6:54 AM Rating: Decent
I have been hunting najena for a few nights, mainly waiting for a dark circlet, and hoping to pick up one of these and so far I have got the dark circ and our mage has got 3 of the components for his elemantal focus, but not a single tentacle whip, are they very rare or am I just unlucky.
PS the addition of the mean skellis in hear has made it much more interesting LOL.
RE: Do these still drop
# Jun 09 2001 at 6:32 AM Rating: Default
I just got one 1hour in to najena, I was pretty lucky
# May 20 2001 at 7:37 AM Rating: Default

# Jun 04 2001 at 8:26 PM Rating: Default

My 3rd level DE SK was using this thing and suddenly the Lifetap goes off. I thought someone else was casting it until I noticed who was saying "Ah, I feel much better now..."
No, it procs at 1
# Mar 25 2001 at 5:04 PM Rating: Default
It procs at level 1. Some people like to "cheap twink" their characters with this little doozy.
