The fabled versions of the melee pet swarm weapons ARE required level 75 now, but the non-fabled versions have not been changed.

If you're a warrior around 65, don't even bother trying to get this during the month the Fabled mobs are around. Sure, there are usually 85s killing the entire island and you might get lucky and have one drop. But if you aren't that lucky, your experience will likely turn out similar to mine: 19 pally/SK maces over the space of two days (approx 9 hours/day) and a whole new meaning to depressing.

downed 1 PH, then a jopal crafter spawned with the sword. i was ready to sit down for a 4hr or more camp, but I'm very happy right now =)

Dropped from Jorpal Crafter today and only took 4 hours =) OMG!
drop rate? what drop rate?
# Apr 27 2005 at 9:08 PM Rating: Decent
ok, this thing has to be bugged. over the last 3 days, cuz i had them off, i have killed 400+ jopals with ONE, yes ONE named spawn (only spawn being Jopal Seer, who of course dropped the pally/sk wep). i have logged over 20 hours there. i have killed every single jopal there is... both small islands, all 5 huts and all other jopals that have been up. sent in feedback, but i dont even know why cuz it's a useless thing to do.

has anyone been able to spawn the named on any server other than bristlebane in the last few weeks?

This sword is a CRIME! As a Warrior who has spent the last 2 years working hard for his epic to see the pet this weapon procs makes me sick. I hope that SOE makes the pet from this weapon look like a normal chanter sowrd and shield or takes the weapon out of the game all together.

Well if you didn't suck so bad it wouldn't have taken you that long, it ain't like it's hard. I think you are the only warrior who wouldn't want this weapon for fun. It's always fun reading these stupid old posts from people.

If you look at the other pet proc weapons, you will see that the Bst has their epic shown, the SK has their epic shown, the Pally has their epic shown. Ranger is a wolf so don't see epic. Why should they change it if? It's how they intended.
# Jun 01 2004 at 11:10 PM Rating: Default
PLEASE --- how much damage does the pet do, how fast does it attack, how worthwhile is it.... im using honorable long sword and sparkaling short sword and im wondering if this would be an upgrade, its base damage doesnt impress me much, but if the pets were decent then id go for it.
# Jun 14 2004 at 11:29 AM Rating: Default
I proc 2-3 pets per fight. Pet damage is anywhere from 40-94hp per swing. The main reason I still use this is because of the added agro, pet hit/miss = agro for you.

This isnt something you can just run out and get easily. This weapon took me over 60 hours of clearing the jopals in 2 weeks time. I killed 11 named, got the sword to drop on 12th kill.
# Jun 16 2004 at 6:51 PM Rating: Default
Little tip, the pets this and all of the other pet weapons proc give nearly zero aggro, if you are looking for aggro I can name you off around 50 weapons that would be better. This weapons is more or less a toy, definately fun and not horrible damage if you arent in time yet. And I got my pet sword off the 38th named I killed ;)

Hi guys, I would just like to post this message to SoE to petition for a change in the graphic of this fine sword:

Dear SoE:
I have camped this VERY RARE ultimate warrior sword for awhile now. Finally I got it to drop last night, thanks to my prayers. This is my dream sword, and even though I am time flagged and will have good chances of getting better weapons.... still, I wanted this sword (with an obsession) and now I have it. Why? because I never did my epics for I knew if I did it (considering the huge timesink), I would never use it in combat, maybe just flash it around PoK. Now, this warrior pet sword I got from PoFire (as most of us elemental warriors know) procs a pet that looks exactly like the Warrior Epic 1hsx2, and the ratio of this sword is actuallly decent enough to make me use it now as a main battle weapon. It makes me wear it with pride, as I have come a long way into this game to reach the elementals, and to show how dedicated I am to my class for I have camped this sword for the longest time. :-)

My only complain is this: The blade looks CHEAP. I have been doing a little research on what would be a deserving graphic for the Obsidian Battle Sword. I would humbly request SOE in behalf of some of the warriors in my server who wield it that the graphic be changed to the appearance of the Honorable Longsword that drops off the PoV dragon, AD. It will be perfect and rewarding.

So if you agree with me in this effort. please post in the thread:

Just say something like "I petition for a change of graphic and prefer the recommended new look."

Thanks all.. please make us proud. :-)

I have camped this for about 25aa. I'm either with some warriors AEing stuff between zone in to first castle wall + jopal village. Or I'm triple boxing cleric, chanter, ranger clearing out the plains. I do it mainly for XP but tradeskill items are a bonus. I usually get about 2-3 named a night being random jopal named, spider, horse, or elemental. I've killed 30+ of these named easily and never seen the sword. I'm not sure if its even possible get this stupid thing honestly.

My only thoughts are that it drops from ONLY named jopal that spawn in village. I've only killed about 5 named from there, mostly I kill named that pop in the plains area between zone in & first castle wall.
Sword Drop

You were in the wrong spot. It drops off the named on the jobal islands only.

It is still dropping... got mine last night.

It only drops from the named in the jopal village area though... not on the planes.

The post on which are the PHs down in this thread is pretty much dead on accurate.

My results:

Named spawned from PH approx 1 in 6 or so...

16 maces dropped before the sword...;(

Still it's a nice item
jopal spawns

Im a 65 war on tholuxe paells, been camping this stupid jopal area for like 40 hours now. Have spawned all the jopals except the chieftan. Anyway here goes the spawn points, hope this helps anyone. Btw the area im talking about is the 3 Islands to the left of C1 (dont go over the wall, follow the lava river right).

Main island

Jopal Crafter - 2nd hut from the left, PH is one of the 2 jopals stacked on top of each other in the middle of the huts.

Jopal Flame Protector - 4th hut from the left, PH is the back middle left (best explanation i can give ;/) flame guardian.

No Hut Island

Obsidian War Spider - not sure what the PH is or even if he has a ph on this island since its so cluttered and everything moves around, but ive only seen him here. So clear the island if you want to consistantly spawn him.

Single Hut Island

Jopal Seer - Thers 4 mobs in here, 3 close together and 1 standing alone, Seer ph is the back middle jopal in the group of 3.

As I said i still havent spawned chieftan so i dont know where he might spawn. Hope this info helps someone, im currently 15 for 15 on jopal named for the stupid mace. Im beginning to hate pal/sk lol. GL.

RE: jopal spawns
# Aug 30 2004 at 12:38 AM Rating: Decent
FYI: i was camping the jopals the other day and i was going by this list of spawn points. The crafter does in fact spawn in the hut where the two mobs are stacked on top of each other... but so does the chieftan... i was pulling that spawn all night and got 3 crafters and the third named was the chieftan. i dont know if one of those mobs is the ph for the crafter and the other is for chieftan or not but they do in fact spawn on the same spot. however today i went down there to see what was shaking and that spawn was not up... no ph's or anythign. I though "cool its already killed for me" and i decided to stay and watch respawn. no dice. after 2 hours nothing had spawned there. i bugged it, not sure what is going on there.
RE: jopal spawns
# Mar 13 2004 at 6:24 AM Rating: Decent
This was a very helpful post, thank you.

To single out the PH for the Obsidian War Spider on the hutless island, kill all the trained obsidian spiders until the repops consist of 1 trained obsidian spider and the rest are flame guardians + 1 mephit. The single trained obsidian spider that repops is the PH.

Still have yet to see the cheiftan, if anyone knows please post. =)

Damn warrior weapons. First they make our DPS suck, then they make our good weapons rare (BoW, DBotW, Obsidian Battle Sword). Even the named like to take their time. Maybe we can all have one 10 years from now.
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 17 2004 at 4:06 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) DBtW is as rare as a Bloodfrenzy drop wise, its only real reason for not more of em are the (well duh) whole time issue ya know.
How to spawn Jopals
# Aug 29 2003 at 9:16 AM Rating: Decent
Can anyone give me info on where to find the named Jopals or where to get them to spawn?

My thinking is to kill all the blue con jopals before the first castle and that will spawn the named ones. Can anyone back this up?

The Jopal camps are found by the first castle wall, to the right. It's a series of 5-6 huts with 3 or 4 Jopals/elementals/spiders in each.

To spawn the nameds, just clear the huts.
RE: How to spawn Jopals
# Sep 02 2003 at 8:49 AM Rating: Decent
Are you talking about the huts in between the first and second castle? I dont recall any huts before the first castle, but thats where all the blue conned "a jopal ---" are. But after the first castle, just past the bridge with the two named birds there are a lot of huts n stuff...yet i didnt see any un-mamed jopals there. Btw, thanks for your help.

There are a series of huts to the right of the first castle wall. Not over the wall, but to the right as you are approaching the wall. There is a lava waterfall beside the castle that leads there, and if you hug the right wall you can manoeuver along without touching the lava.
ranger wep
# Jun 01 2003 at 8:45 AM Rating: Default
I have the ranger pet wep, called Whip of the Earthcrafter, 16/20 lots of stats 100hp 75mana 12 sv disease and poison, it procs a lot for me.

I have had 4 pets up at one time, and 2 to 3 average, about 6 or 7 procs on good fights and usually no less than 2 procs on any fight.

our pets are not epic wielding ghosts, rangers pet effect is called call of the mistwalker, its a big black wolf, and is very mean lol.

# Jan 21 2003 at 6:47 AM Rating: Decent
These are "swarm" pets, meaning they just attack what you attack and defend you from extra attacks for the 10 seconds they are up.
# Jan 21 2003 at 12:54 AM Rating: Decent
A bunch of classes get these. The bard one has already been found in the plane of water (Coral Hilted Shortsword). The procs are not only pets, but they floating invisible pets holding the calsses epic. The bard one looks quite cool with it's SSS. I imagine this one would look even cooler with it's lightsabers.
