What drops it

This item drops off a Runed Giant. If you follow the right wall all the way up the stairs and up the far right ramp and keep plowing down the halls, you'll eventually run into this guy. You can get this with a very good single group. It would be much, much easier with two groups though.
Why can't you all keep it simple?

Wow a caster weapon with a good ratio, god knows there arent any of those? I mean there are some 21/21 daggers for casters, and a 60dmg 40delay hammer for casters, oh god, no a caster with a good ratio weapon, s/he is gonna take over the world, oh my oh me. Apparently you missed the boat, caster weapon ratios are great, especially since their melee skills sucks, so its very rare when they do melee.

You must be new to EQ, so welcome, and understand that caster items have great ratios because they lack the skills, stats, and chance to use them like normal melee. And for pure melee ratio, this isnt that great, the stats blow for a melee. So once again welcome to EQ.

Quick EDIT: Also why would casters wear SCHW??? most casters who really like to melee either have a tola robe ( 36% haste compared to 22% haste ?? ) or some other haste item they use. They wont be doing quicker damage, you need skills to land the hits, if your skills blow you will miss, it very different if a rogue could use this compared to a necromancer, you would have a ton of misses where as the rogue would actually land their hits. So it doesnt really reflect the real ratio when dealing with a caster weilding something and when a melee weilds something.

#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 06 2003 at 10:22 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Wow a flamer with a bad attitude, god knows there are TOO many of those. I mean, you obviously must not have read my post very closely. I said that this is good for a CASTER. I said nothing about this being an amazing warrior/SK/pally/ranger/monk weapon.
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 06 2003 at 3:10 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) okay what if lets say a wizzy was in a group hmm let me think a ranger as tank druid for heals rogue shammy and him and they rip through mobs so fast without his nukes it doesnt matter and all he is really doing there is debuffing the dmg sheild wearin spiders in dl now by all means what is wrong with him using a weapon and keeping the chances of pingpong down i am no caster but if the man wants to feel useful let him i know how he feels when im 2 boxing with a druid i just sit let the dots do their job and rush in on the last bub to eleminate it sucks sitting so do something

Why wouldn't verant/soe put good dmg/delay on these weapons, these are the high end weapons in the game, so of course they are going to try and make the caster weapons look better by giving them a great dam/delay. I have many high level caster friends that would love a weapon with a dmg/delay like this, no not because they are going to melee a god, but because of farming greens for ore or silks, or that stupid skeleton that thinks it can take you down, why would you waste mana on that? (if you just ignore it and run it to zone you suck, you get newbs killed that way)

And finally, your attitude ishka sucks, plain and simple, you make yourself seem more like a jerk than anyone else, I normally don't post because its basically pointless, but when I see ignorance such as yours not to mention an attitude, I had to say something.

Wow, I did not realize that there were so many stupid people playing this game. I make a simple statement, get called a newb (for all intents and purposes) then when I retaliate for that, someone says that I have the bad attitude? Wow Wow Wow! I mean if I said that you were a moron and a reject for saying what you said (which I am saying) then why should you NOT come back against that? Get real Freak, and understand reality - someone makes a verbal assault on you - you say something back, PLAIN AND SIMPLE. If you dont like it, tough. I didn't start the flaming or maybe your eyes and brain couldnt comprehend that. Oh well, whatever the case, you obviously are oblivious to the world and common courteousy.
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 06 2003 at 7:37 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) OK, Don't get me wrong first off. This weapon is an AMAZING caster weapon. Therein lies the problem. ITS FOR CASTERS!!! Why the hell would a caster need, or even be able to obtain a weapon with attack stats like this? I mean, cmon, lets be real for a second. Since when did it become the casters job to stand in there and do damage quicker than a warrior with a weapon. (notice I did not say MORE damage than a warrior) I mean think about it. The next thing that happens is that you have a ton of casters camping the tops in Velks just to get SCHW because of this weapon. Change the damage stats a little - be realistic!

You are a pet caster. Sorry, but you have no idea how much it sucks to farm easy green stuff with pure nukes. Thats when good dmg dly comes in handy for caster: When you fight something 30 level below yourself. It happens to me sooo often that I run through a lowbie area, some stupid mob agroes and since I usually don't memorize old spells, either I accept that little mob poking me, or I nuke him down with a spell that takes 10 times the mana than it would need to kill it.

One thing you have to remember.. if Verant starts implementing weapons with very high dmg and quick as a light delay to melee classes then it will further create an unbalance classes in EQ.

I for one would hate to see this happen.

I would hate to see Rogues weilding an 18dmg/18dly poker or 25dmg/18dly. (as an exmaple)

As a person that plays warrior and sk classes, I would hate to ruin my gameplay to posses such powerful weapons.

You have to remember that this is NOT Diablo where you can just "Hack and Slash" your way through zones with ease. Where is the challenge and skills in that?

I for one have seen a lot of items in the 3rd and 4th tier zones that are not worth keeping (such as the item in question). To a bigger guild this kind of item is more of a "cash loot" that will cover our expenses when raiding.

It also allows bigger guild to supply players that are unable to hunt in such zones I mentioned an item that you dont get anywhere else.

It also allows players that does not belong to a guild and prefers to solo to posses decent items.

So, just because an item drops off a 3rd tier and 4th tier zones it doesnt mean they should be uber.

The biggest problem is that a lot of people thinks that every item should have a Godlike stats and uses the excuse of RvsR.

I have played EQ since it came out, the game has advanced since then, and I am sorry to say that EQ has become less and less of a challenge.

There are much better melee weapons that come before this that put these stats/ratios to total shame, so its very reasonable for a caster to have this by this point in PoP, as for them, its just as uber an equivalent. (i think)

It really comes down to this, if your a melee in a raid thats currently in this level of the game and this item drops, you'll more than likely think its a total gimp weapon before you realise its a caster weapon, and then it becomes nice and uber and such.
