Not many weapons drop in VT, mostly it is just bane weapons to be used in VT and maybe a few others. Nothing good for melee class. VT is about armor and focus effects. The better pre-pop weapons drop in SSRA
HP is a bonus on this

I play a rogue and I managed to get this cus it was gonna rot, but it is a upgrade for my offhand and it was a LSoEE or Bile-Drenched main gauche (sp?), I parse much more dmg, and not to mention I get 100+ hp from it with the STA, not to bad but definately not the best.
#Naur, Posted: Nov 22 2002 at 12:57 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Both trials and AD are a joke really... But truly I do not see anyone that can kill Aerin Dar needing nor wanting this other than graphic, or the possibility of a bard wanting it for a bardvsbard duel to hit hard and less when going against a damage shield. Other than that it's a pretty good doorjam.

I looked at what the Upper Tier War weapons look like and they have large delays also. I works out nice with max 100% haste and big hits from crit with this is about 200-300 damage straight crit damagae. Thats an estimate, goes higher and lower at times with war abilities. This is also great with max aa for flurry since you get 3 attacks in one strike. Put an anger 3 aug from ldon and get your furious bash 4 shield from BOT and you set for tanking the big dogs. Those ripostes can be ouches with one of them 17 delay speed death smackers. Faster is not better for a War, joo need to slow down speedy and let the dps dealers do the thing from behind and just get your anger procs out there. I even used this without anger 3 and I hold aggro good. Thats my test, if it is good without anger 3 then its uber with it.
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 19 2002 at 12:20 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) man i can't wait til my character isn't a weiner so i can yeild an awsome sword like this. Right now i'm only using a centi short sword and a giant milita longsword, this would like double my damage output, if not more. Oh ya i'm a ranger.
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 19 2002 at 9:35 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I'm a ranger, and imo, this would probably serve best as a rogue offhand out of the classes able to use.
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 18 2002 at 11:03 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) actually LSoEE is 21/29
RE: uhh wrong
# Nov 19 2002 at 4:03 PM Rating: Decent
Actually, LSoEE isn't 21/29, it's 16/29 with 5 Magic damage, which isn't 21/29 all the time. Specially against mobs with good magic resist.
This is a far superior sword and LSoEE shouldn't even have been brought up as a comparison
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 18 2002 at 11:09 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) oh wait the big differnce
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 24 2002 at 3:12 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I dont have an bit of n00bness in me and that sword sux.Good loot isnt only judged by stats, also by risk vs. reward.For this encounter that sword is a PoS.There are a lot better weapons than this for all class on lesser mobs through out Velious and Luclin.Want a nice Ranger sword drop IV in Akheva (gimp).Want a nice Bard sword drop Va`Dyn in Akheva (gimp).Your a n00b Yevum, kkthx.
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 18 2002 at 11:12 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) oh ya i also think i see ranger up there WAIT
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 18 2002 at 11:11 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) wait what 75mana WOW in a 1hs?? bard useable !! what it is a 22/30!! holy crap! this thing rocks you guys truly show your nOObness. I mean yes this isn't the best but it doesn't suck one damn bit.

#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 18 2002 at 6:31 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) this would be a great weapon for any of the classes that can equip it. seams like a paly should be able to equip it too. due to its mana and wis i say this should go to a ranger

I'm not saying that this weapon sucks, but the fact that it drops from the crystal dragon in PoV really makes this item inferior in terms of risk-vs-reward.

For the guy that asked about this not being pally usable, there is a weapon for pallies and sk's called Vengeful Diamon Blade which is tradeable and drops from prisoners in PoJ that are light-blue at 61. Considering that the VDB is probably just as good as this sword really give pallies and Sk's no cause to be upset.

I agree with cannable, go out and buy a LSoEE: basically same ratio but diff stats... no big difference.

this weapon would be better than the LSoEE (but at least the LSoEE is tradeable). You get a consistent 22 damage whereas the LSoEE can be anywhere from 16-21 depending on the magic resist check. The main thing is the HP difference. You get zero hp from the LSoEE, in fact you lose HP from the negative stamina. Don't get me wrong, the LSoEE is a great tradeable weapon but this weapon is superior.

if this dropped in one of the first tier planes it would be a decent weapon but when you factor in that the only people who will have access to this nodrop weapon have to pass the trials, this weapon is a garbage.

Not that I want to bring up a two-year thread, but...

Actually, you don't physically have to complete any of the Justic trials to get access to this weapon, if you're 55+, you can get into Valor, and Storms without the flag from completing at least one Justice Trial. The only reason you'd need it is if the raid was successful, killed Aerin`Dar, and you were under 62. In order to be able to enter Halls of Honor, you must be either level 62, or have all previous flags in that procession.

Although I don't completely agree with Cronuus, he is right. The Trials aren't necessarily easy, but manageable with a decent group. Aerin`Dar, on the other hand, takes a fair-sized raid of people that need to keep their concentration on top of the matter. Aerin`Dar's no pushover, and he'll wipe most raids if people drag their feet.

Yes, there are better, but my Ranger definitely enjoys this weapon in his offhand, from time to time. Mostly to see a string of hits for 150ish (non-critical). I've yet to put it in my Primary, as it's a touch too slow for my liking, when it comes to me serving as DPS. Great weapon, yes. Better weapons available to those that have the consistency to get a mark from one of the Justice Trials, possibly...but I can't make any suggestions, myself, I have full access to Halls of Honor at 57, and I don't necessarily have "better"...just a pair of weapons I feel are better suited to being pure DPS, and a two hander that works wonders for tanking.

The problem is, that hasn't always been the case. When PoP released not anyone over 55 could enter Valor. You had to be flagged originally to enter Valor.

Cannable posted in 2002, suggesting that he posted before they made it so anyone over 55 could enter Valor.
