more common while HoH is hotzone

Just as has happened in other zones, now that HoH is a hotzone lots of people are spending lots of time there, so many formerly rare drops are showing up in large numbers in the Bazaar, and prices have plummeted. When I looked just now there were 12 up for sale, half of those for under 100pp. I picked up the cheapest at 5pp to toss into my tribute pile: 360 tribute for 5pp is a ratio I'm happy to pay!

The Real Value
# Jul 28 2004 at 2:19 PM Rating: Excellent
For ppl who use the tribute masters:
1pp = 1 tribute pt
Defenders Lightblade = 380 tribute pts
Purchase in bazaar for 50p (seventh hammer)
50p = 380 tribute pts

I solo 5-6 of the entrance guardians, have killed over 100. Today I got a nice surprise! This dropped, while before was maybe 1 in 20 gave orb of marr or chunk of metal.

Nice cash item.

Uhhhhhh... at 30 this weapon is 12/34. Sucks.
Good for a 40 pally?
# Apr 23 2004 at 12:26 PM Rating: Default
As the title asks, is this a decent 1hs for a 40 pally? Better than Shaded Blade at least?

My 17 Ranger just got this sword and it's sweet. But not as sweet as the price. Payed 25pp for it on TP server
Level Restrictions

It appears that the level restrictions on weapon damage has been fixed. Damage output now appears to be consistent with the level adjusted damage values. I do not believe there was mention of it in any of the patch messages.
So far, not limiting by lvl

Hitting 47-52 at level 35 - seems they're not honoring the EQ stat limits - get one now before that all changes!
Cheap on Luclin
# Jan 02 2004 at 4:44 PM Rating: Default
On Luclin, I usually see at least two or three of these swords for sale. Sometimes they range greatly in price, but on average, they run about 300p. Is this sword fairly common, or do people just not want to buy it?
RE: Cheap on Luclin
# Jan 07 2004 at 7:03 PM Rating: Default
It seems to be plenty common, and the recommended level of 56 really hurts it. Most people who'd use it have better than what this caps out by the time they're 56.

Much much better mid level item... That recommended level really kills the usefulness of this (could be) great sword.
RE: Cheap on Luclin
# Jan 08 2004 at 4:58 PM Rating: Decent
Actually, on recommended level weapons, the code seems to be broken on the damage aspect of them. So even though it says you don't have full damage, you actually seem to. I know my mid 40's ranger can slash in the 100's with this weapon with max STR.
RE: Cheap on Luclin
# Feb 05 2004 at 1:46 PM Rating: Decent
It's worth mentioning that the 'red damage' code bug could be fixed at any time.

So if you're counting on full damage from a weapon you're well below the recommended level of, you could log on some time to find a major loss in your damage output.

I'd sure hate to be level 30 trusting this to give me '22' damage and suddenly find it delivering about 11-12 one day.

Wish they would fix it, the number of bad-at their-class high levels is increasing fast enough, without these cheap PL weapons being available.

Its bad enough to see a level 20 running around with a centi LS, soloing mobs that are supposed to take a group, without them having weapons with a ratio like this one.

Don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining about the high levels with twinks, as much as the true newbs, on their first character, running around with gear like this, levelling up to 50 in 3 days, and then having no clue how to play their character, once their gear is no longer overpowering.

i dont knwo if prices raised or not but on drinal 12/07/03 its going for 500-1k gonna grab the cheepest on if it really does hit in its 50's for a lvl 30... since i have a 34 bard

Picked up this, the Wakizashi of the Frozen Skies and a Compund Steelshaft Bow for 500pp on Tunare.
Some guy was selling the three off cause he was toasting his account.
Methinks I got a good deal.
this sword
# Nov 16 2003 at 11:56 AM Rating: Good
I have seen people in there 10s-30s using this weapon and it is landing for a lot more damage than it should be. The fact that it is going cheap is even more surprising. If you had a ranger or another class that can use this, I would pick it up and give it a try. Was seeing 30s in damage in the 10s (levels) and 40s-50s in the 20s-30s. Very scary.
RE: this sword
# Jan 08 2004 at 7:50 PM Rating: Decent
Well I read these posts and decided to try one out. I've been hitting for up to about 80, although normally in the high 60's, with this in my primary. This is for a lv 33 warrior with a str of 192. It's not too bad because that's about 10 or 12 points less than the max I've been doing with a 29 damage, slower 2-hander. Supposedly this is giving me 13 damage at my level but it's hitting for about twice as much as the 12 damage sword I had been using.

Bought on Tarew Marr last night for 100 plat. I can't imagine why a weapon of this caliber has dropped so drastically but there were about 10 for sale and none of them over 1k. Sad when the Polished Granite Tomahawk cost more than a weapon that falls in HoH.
# Jul 22 2003 at 3:54 AM Rating: Decent
Wow thes things have dropped in price and rarity.. On bristlebroken there are usually 20 of these in bazaar at once and the cheapest is usually around 300pp i dont know whats going on but i like it
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 24 2003 at 7:42 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I got this for my Rogue (lvl 37) just yesterday its pritty nice rogue slashes for 50-60dmg even though its 15 dmg for him at this lvl.

Would this be a good weapon for a paladin who currently has Venomous Axe and Ghoulbane? I paid 1k for it.

Not really man, first, paladins can't use this weapon. Second, if I were playing a paladin he would be wielding a 2hs/b few shields can come close to making up for the damage lost to single wielding a one handed weapon.

Well, the veno axe isn't a very good Paladin weapon either. Most paladin 1h weapons, will have ratios of close to one.

The other posts are correct that paladins should usually use a 2h weapon. However, for those occasions when you need to bash (prior to getting 2hbash aa) a good 1h and shield combo is nice. Plus, if the pally is tanking, the extra stats off a shield can make a difference.

The mace of the fallen crusader is a nice paladin 1hb. The ratio is a LOT better than this. This is meant to be an offhand weapon for dual wield classes, particularly rangers and rogues.

Ok, (One) it ain't for Paladins and (two) how could u waste 1k on an item and not even check if its for the right class.

# Sep 15 2003 at 12:43 PM Rating: Good
I currently use the defender's/lamentation combo. However i have to agree with the post below. At 41 the defenders lightblade will have too many level penalties on it. I would bank it for now and use it at level 50 or so when it is a lot closer to the recommended level. i also recommend getting a venemous axe. I used a venemous axe/ fluxbladed axe combo when i solo'd up to about level 50 when i found a defenders in the bazaar on stormhammer for 50pp. At higher levels most people will have at least 22% permanent haste. on them and will be grouping with chanters or other haste casters. this sword does mad damage.

Centi Longswords are OK weapons. However, they aren't really warrior weapons. Warriors primary concern is keeping aggro on them. THis is accomplished by having FAST weapons, and procs.

My personal experience has been that a Venomous Axe of the Velium brood significantly outtaunts a Centi LS in Offhand.

I used a lammy in primary until I got to level 40, then went with frostbringer primary, veno axe secondary. This combo outaunted anything I had tried up to that point.

While the defender's lightblade does good damage, its kind of slow for aggro purposes. Plus, at lvl 40 or 41, the ratio is significantly worse, due to the recommended level of 56.

Go to the steel warriors website for extensive information on weapon choices, procs and the like.

But in short, leave the centi AND the defender's lightblade to the rangers, and get a fast weapon with a proc.
