60% haste isnt maxed becase a slot haste can be combined with a casted haste buff.
Better than that twig!
# Dec 27 2001 at 3:27 AM Rating: Decent
No longer drops, those that exist have been nerfed as off-hand only. A high level warrior weilding this with haste items and Enchanter epic haste buff (maxed haste) + STR damage bonus is essentially weilding a 10 damage delay ONE weapon (or some ridiculous mouthwatering figure)!

Moss covered twig had more publicity but this weapon was just as badddasss!

You wouldnt be able to get the delay below four or five, Im pretty sure (lots of people have told me such but im not sure where/how to verify it and im too lazy to test it myself) that max haste is 60% thus getting it to delay 1 is simply impossible. Also, with the primary hand damage bonus, you would have a much better than 10dmg weapon, more in the area of 15-20+ (i dont have a super high warrior so im not sure just where it tops out)

hehe, yer doing good, but the min delay possible is 1.1/11, or so i've heard, maybe jus some n00b tryin to be cool said that, i dunno, but he said that the minimum delay was 11 =p
RE: Better than that twig!

You are indeed correct, the lowest attainable delay is 1.1 seconds. I wanted to test this theory myself so I borrowed my friends CoF and got VoG from a chanter friend of mine. Using the ranger hate whip (5dam 14delay) I dueled a warrior with 6k hitpoints (he didn't fight back). With that kind of haste the delay on the whip should have been around 7, but when I parsed the log it was indeed 11 (or 1.1 seconds). /shrug

Did you all realize that the lowest delay you can get is 9? At least without bard songs of warsong and battle cry of the vah shir? The only reason why weapons don't go below 9 is because it would trivialize a lot of encounters with 20/1 or 30/1 weapons you'd be hitting 10 times, or at least swinging 10 times per second, not including double and triple attack.

That is why.

Do you realize there is a Giant Bad **** bixie in the Plane of Air that drops a 2/6? that is a delay of .6 seconds. Go here:

str on new whip?

Does the whip that replaced this one (8/22) still have the 3str?
Verant screwed up
# Aug 15 2001 at 7:56 AM Rating: Good
When I read the "no longer drops" posts, and also arguments about what weapon to wield, it's pretty clear that verant screwed up their own combat system. They should never have made anything add to damage. It should all be multiples. Like melee damage should be offense skill times weapon skill times strength times weapon damage rating times primary hand and level bonus times some constant to make it come out right. Instead they have the same type of insane formula that gives us hell levels, except no one actually knows how to calc damage from a weapon. A 1/2 weapon should do the same damage per second as a 50/100 weapon. You shouldn't have to go to websites like this to figure out whether one weapon is better than another.
No longer drops

This item was considered to good, so it no longer drops, instead you can get an 8dmg 22dly whip.
# May 15 2001 at 7:11 PM Rating: Default
They nerfed these low delay weapons by making them Off hand only

How so?
# Apr 01 2001 at 5:04 PM Rating: Default
I would like to know what way this was nerfed ?

Does it no longer drop or does it just go in offhand only ?
RE: How so?
# Jan 25 2002 at 9:08 AM Rating: Decent
It only goes in off hand now.
# Jan 04 2001 at 11:59 PM Rating: Decent
I'm not sure what drops this, but I'm guessing Goblin Whipcrackers. Anyone know??
# Dec 04 2000 at 8:42 PM Rating: Default
what creature actually drops this ??
RE: drop
# Jan 18 2001 at 3:15 PM Rating: Decent
Well I know it is NOT the goblin whipcracks, they drop a 5 and 30 leather P.O.S. I am thinking it must be one of the Sarnaks. Please if anyone knows tell us!
RE: drop
# Feb 02 2001 at 5:27 AM Rating: Good
This used to drop off the tamer. It was changed i think and he now drops an 8/22 weapon. They changed it same time they took out the 3/10 twig. It was just too powerful. That is what I can recall about this.
RE: drop
# Apr 13 2001 at 9:04 PM Rating: Default
It used to drop off the Drake Tamer, but it has been nerfed. No longer drops and those that are ingame have been made offhand only. The new drop is the 8/22 whip
