I wonder if the aggro on this wouild be really problematic for a rogue. Do any rogues out there use this?

It must've had an anger augument on it. I see rangers wielding this weap on my server. Anyways, when you put an anger augument on a weapon, the weapon will show warrior as the only class usable because the anger aug is warrior only.

I won the Scimitar a few days ago. Since that time I have grouped in Vxed and a few other GoD zones. I have never had any problem with Agro. I also weild Jagged Shard of Frozen Flame. Scimitar in my Primary, its a nice Combo.

Any rangers out there using this? If so, any agro problems?

RE: Agro
# Apr 01 2004 at 12:34 AM Rating: Decent
I have it... it draws quite a bit of agro. Occasionally, it'll proc 4 or 5 times very very quickly, in which case you're probably going to get agro in a normal exp group. Its a very nice sword for tanking.

I wield this as well, and never have any major problems with getting aggro. With a good tank and proper jolt usage you'll be fine.
# Feb 07 2004 at 4:21 PM Rating: Default
This has a 25% chance to proc over the default proc rate of weapons (according to unknown070 value).
# Nov 26 2003 at 10:28 AM Rating: Default
this is common imo.. dropped all the times i've been on VZ, thats 5 times or so
try it
# Oct 06 2003 at 3:34 AM Rating: Default
I got one last , and it gives better aggro than you would expect, actually as good as warrior epic or Great Blade of storms...a great 1HS, dont knock till you have one

RE: try it
# Oct 29 2003 at 7:31 PM Rating: Default
It's an ac debuff, what do you think it's going to be for agro? Try chain casting flame lick, or other spells of that line, or use a frostbringer. AC debuffs are mega agro, comparible to stuns.

Is this good for a Warrior? I was just wondering, ive passed on this to rangers and bards. Should I put in for this. Im currently wielding a BOC and my red blade (epic).

If you are still using your red blade epic then I would think so. There are better aggro/better ratio weapons out there but its certainly not too shabby as an upgrade.
RE: MT Warrior?
# Sep 23 2003 at 6:33 AM Rating: Decent
i'd have to say this is much better than warrior epic

i was just wondering what the scimitar looks like equiped? does it look like most of the scimitars or does it look differant?
RE: looks
# Jun 21 2003 at 9:59 PM Rating: Decent
I saw a character on Mith Marr with it in their offhand hehe. This scimitar looks so badass. The blade is black and the handle i think was grey with gems around the top of the handle. Total uberness

it's the same Scimitar that Vallon uses.

In point of fact, obsidian, when sharpened, is sharper than even the finest surgical steel. It is utterly impossible to have a steel sword that is as sharp as an obsidian one (steel is less brittle though).

maybe after kicking so much *** and forgetting to resharpen the blade, it became blunt =p

proc not worthless
# Nov 16 2002 at 3:20 PM Rating: Default
Eh, not a worthless proc actually. If you look at which procs tend to give you agro, you will notice the proc from Frostbringer (ac debuff and 60dd) draws more than any straight DD proc. So, seeing as this has an ac debuff on it, i'd say it would draw agro, and with a 19dly, you stand more chances of it proc'ing than FB, and it has that sweet 15dam on, short of and Enraging or Taunting blow weapon.. this really isnt that bad. Nice weapon maybe for a guildmate who's not already decked in the agro wep department. Hell, i know i'd love to get this.
What i dont get is Scimitar? 1HB?

I know of my lurid dagger,Ac tap give lot of aggro.So that thing maybe not so worthless imo
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 14 2002 at 2:57 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) such a nice weapon, ruined by a worthless proc.

1) its 15 dmg to 19 dly 2) it has 100 hp 3) it has 12 sta..and you really care what the proc is?

RE: bleh
# Oct 14 2003 at 2:49 AM Rating: Default
imo you have all the other slots to worry about stats. you only have 2 slots that define your dps. for me, i don't give a **** about weapon stats, only 2 things that matter for me is the dps it generates,and the aggro it produces ( for me the lower the better, for a tank the higher the better, of course )

I am SA for a good size guild. I wield a Great Blade of the Storm from BOT, and its great - because it's proc holds agro. The sword's STA and HP etc arn't all that special in comparison.

So yes, as a warrior, those stats are important for sure, but the ability to hold agro is everything. I would probably replace my red epic in offhand If I was merited this.

#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 11 2002 at 7:45 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Its not no drop so it can be dropped hehe
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 11 2002 at 11:49 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) or maybe it is just off of one of those servers that everything is drop on...
