This is great for beastlords as not only does it stun (which compliments our pet's stun proc) but it also reduces aggro, allowing our pet to more effectively keep the mob distracted while we bludgeon it to death. I am going to buy a WLK and use that in primary, this in offhand. Good combo.
#REDACTED, Posted: May 06 2003 at 7:09 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) um hate to tell you this but -200 hate means you are higher on the hate list. lower numbers = more hate

Blade of carnage proc:

says inceases hate by 700

this one decreases hate by 200.

So the way allakhazam lists it is backwards of what you're saying.

get your facts strait before you flame someone

He said it reduces aggro. WTF are you talking about?

He was probably refering to a reply to the original poster that has already been filtered out from being shown. That's what the ratings are for. ;)

Just a small note, with the exception of sometimes rarely to a bug, pets will always 100% lose aggro to a player who is in melee range.

To test this, let your pet knock a mob down 90%, let it taunt/don't get any aggro yourself. When it hits 10% step into melee range and the mob will turn to you.

Not to flame you, just don't plan on this working. :)
very good!

In terms of highest damage for an offhand weapon that is droppable, this weapon is the best in the game. For a Monk at least. Im not interested in stats or procs, just damage. The only weapons that do more damage are no drop off stuff in tier 3-4 zones.

even out?
# Dec 26 2002 at 5:55 PM Rating: Default
Well, taunt is a pretty decent agro machine.

The "lower agro"-part of the proc will most likely just even out the Stun-part, so all in all you will just stun and stay where you are on agro list(damage still raises etc.)

Very nice weapon
Excellent Offhand for a Beastlord
# Nov 18 2002 at 5:35 PM Rating: Decent
Subject pretty much tells the story.

This is an excellent off hand weapon for a beastlord instead of a SoS. Just my 2 cents.
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 13 2002 at 8:32 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ideal for a warrior or tank class!!!! it lowers aggro every tank class wants that!! Smiley: wink2
Who would use?

Ok, anyone who does these trials knows what it takes to get through. Only high end groups do this, very well equipped high end groups.

Of course you'll hear from those who were babbysat through it via 5 ubers taking some dink through but that is the exception.

The only way this item would really get used is under 3 conditions:

1) Looks -- if it looks cool, it'll get the "lookie what I got!" use.

2) Group hunting where they want to stun stuff to avoid a gate and where the healers are gonna be a tad buisy keeping folks alive and meding -- any of the melee classes listed might use it.

3) Cleric who wants to play around and melee a bit with the group. Hey they deserve a break from the sit-med "CH Inc on %t" crap but really shouldn't have to get the crap kicked out of them for it... *grin*

As for druids... I know one or 2 goofs who might take it for use but they are very, very few and far between for the level needed to get this item.

Most use will be twink gear and/or bazaar sell of to lowbies.

Ciao for now,

Speaking of newbies.. after reading your message..

This item is Now REQUIRED level 50. It makes an
awesome Offhand for Rogue. (others).

They are not MT they are DPS and secondary melee.
The proc not only bleeds off aggro by lowering
you on the hate list, but the 1sec stun also
spell interrupts. This is another great secondary
melee function. Good base weap dmg, and with good
haste gear hits quite often.

Nice weapon to help keep the aggro where it belongs with the Main Tank, and Save group members from some of those nasty spells they
didnt want to get hit with anyway :) As soon as the stuns start, the questions go away, and the good Job compliments begin.

It's one of those items for wich i as druid would be looking for definately, in good groups where chloro is pretty sufficent to take care of injuries during the fight, it's a very welcome addition to step in and melee and hope it procs a few times, the stun will temp prevent ppl from getting hurt and thus spending valuable mana on them. And even if the lowerhate equals or is bigger than the build up by the stun proc it's still pretty safe to use it. Weapons like this should be an encouragement for druids to join the melee while their heals are not needed yet and after they have they have casted the most important ro spells to debuf mob even a bit further. In combination with a mindbuff kei/clarity it would be a good combination to increase damage output of the group a bit more. Wich is important if the druid is the mainhealer, cause we ain't clerics. (yes i envy the healingskills of clerics):-)

For where it concerns other classes, i don't have experience in the lvl range yet, so i can't tell but for a druid in groupsituations certainly an excellent weapon.

Umm... clerics cant use it at all anyway, check the stats :)

Personaly i'm thinking this is a nice bst iteam, we don't have Jolt or FD or Evade to keep our agro down, note i have yet to find a tank that can keep all agro from me, so this i would deffently use once in a while, i don't quad so my meleing isn't as dependent, most my damge is done by my pet hehe alltho i nuke alot so this would deffently be a nice iteam
monk or ranger

be good for a monk or a ranger beins monks like to get hit on and reduces hate /= dont know bout rangers though guess they cant get on the hate list anyways so
RE: monk or ranger
# Oct 30 2002 at 4:58 PM Rating: Decent
Would definitely be a nice rogue offhand. Another way to drop you on the hate list after some big double backstabs is always nice )

Nice way to compliment Evade (or monk FD)

In order to backstab a mob, dont you have to use a piercing weapon? Forgive me if i an wrong ( ive never played a rogue) but have heard that you can only BS with a piercer.
# Feb 21 2003 at 8:09 PM Rating: Decent
Well , you COULD backstab with a blunt weapon , but it'd just be harder to pierce the skin . Might break somethin' , though .
RE: monk or ranger
# Feb 07 2003 at 10:01 AM Rating: Decent
Quote "offhand" , Piercer is in main and allows
the backstabs.

Rangers are always on the top of the hatelist if they are not using a bow. Only other hybrids, rogues, and super equiped tanks can compete.
Good Ranger weapon

Was hoping this item looked like a judge's gavel :( .. or even like the Captain's Mallet.

It DOES have a unique look ... If I'm not mistaken, looks like a small, four-finned mace with a very thin wood handle ... not super fancy, but nice and simple appearance.

Not too bad an off-hander, besides.

#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 29 2002 at 6:28 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) OK lowering you on the hate list means that you gain more agro from the creature. When you go higher on the hate list it means the creature hates you less so yeah thats what it does. Same thing with warrior epic.

That is completely backwards.
RE: Lowering on hate list
# Oct 29 2002 at 8:19 PM Rating: Excellent
Curscale is correct. The []Blade of Carnage[/link] has the proc []Enraging Blow[/link] that does the opposite. The same with the Shadowknight "Voice of/Terror" of line of spells and the Enchanter agro modifier spell line.

Increasing hate=mob hates you more, decreasing hate=mob hates you less.
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 29 2002 at 6:56 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) no the original poster was correct
RE: Lowering on hate list
# Oct 29 2002 at 8:23 PM Rating: Excellent
higher on the hate list you go, the more the mob hates you. the lower on the hate list you go, the less the mob hates you. Look it up if you dont believe me
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 29 2002 at 10:17 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) But when looking at effects that generate agro, they always list as decreasing on the hate list. So what you want as a MT is items that generate negative decrease (and thus, by the rules of english, an increase.). I belive the first person that posted in this thread knew this but didn't express it well. Everyone else (including me) has just been nitpicking.
RE: Lowering on hate list
# Oct 30 2002 at 12:21 AM Rating: Excellent
Well, think we have all become mixed up by the raising/lowering wording. However, this gavel will lower you on the hate list -- which means the mob will not want to kill you quite as much. This is the exact opposite of what EB does:

Enraging Blow
1: Raises you on the target's hate list by 700 points

Classes: None

Skill: Alteration
Allowable Targets: All
Beneficial: Detrimental

Range to Target: 200.00 feet

Resistance Check: None

Spell Duration: Instant

Spell cast on you: Your head snaps back.
Spell cast on someone: An orc centurion's face contorts with rage.
RE: Lowering on hate list
# Oct 30 2002 at 8:40 AM Rating: Excellent
I agree with Timmoy... lowering you on the hate list means the monster hates you less.. Lower=less. I think if you put it in regards to the rogues ability to lower hate it makes sense. Remember the debate over rogues? (lets not get into a flame war over that just now..) Rogues special ability would get them placed at the BOTTOM of the hate list as far as aggro and NOT get attacked. That means they get attacked LESS. So if you are lower on the hate list you get hated LESS. Taunting, Massive damage, Nukes, Tashing, healing always ADDS aggro and gets the monsters attention placing you HIGHER on the hate list. Ask any enchanter casting TASH at the wrong moment... they would wish higher on the hate list means you get ignored!

This is a great weapon for the non-main assist. If you do not want to get the monsters attention use this weapon. Some monks will like this for it will let them attack instead of playing dead to lower them on the hate list. Same with rogues. A rogue would like this item for it compliments their ability to not get noticed while dishing out the damage.

If you take a look at Enraging blow, it RAISES you on the hate list. Look at the effect: Spell cast on someone: An orc centurion's face contorts with rage.

Will that make them hate you less??? I rest my case.
RE: Lowering on hate list
# Feb 23 2003 at 12:45 AM Rating: Decent
I believe the photo says 'decrease' hate...says nothing about lowering or raising...decreasing hate would lead me to believe that you are hated less by the mob. Just my opinion...I could be wrong.
Offhand mmm
# Oct 29 2002 at 5:33 PM Rating: Decent
This would be very nice for my monkey, a stun that lowers hate list? Very interesting...

Yep, seems monks and rogues would benefit most from this, for the reasons already discussed above.
