I dont know how many times you have killed Avatar of Dust for the Rune Stamped Blade, but it isnt an event ring that you really want to do a lot. As a matter of fact most guilds do it just enough times to get a couple of people the piece they need for the Xegony island key, which if you dont know is like 1-2 kills because it usually drops more than 1. So if you have more than 1 bard that wants it they are probably SOL and even with the couple of kills you might do you may not see this drop. So the Rhythm of Xegony starts looking better and better all the time to bards that dont already have something of equal or better quality.

yeah 40 or 50 bards present. but this weapon isnt the best bard weapon, therefore there may be 5 bards present, but none need it.. therefor, grats rot....

17/19 AC15 135/135 very decent stats 10% all resists AND 100ptDD....Grats rot?
Are you kidding?

#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 08 2003 at 4:50 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) for Elemental planes, 17/19 isn't great...pal and sk and monk and bl get ratio 1 weapons earlier in planes, and for bard themselves, check out [link=

Rune Stamped Blade off the avatar of dust (different part of PoA)

Clearing you dont know what your talking about. Since Avatar of Dust is NOT a different part of PoA. Avatar of Dust spawns AFTER you kill Sigismond Windwalker

oh great, ANOTHER person who believes you should already have better equipment than what drops in the zones you hunt in for equipment!

I grow tired of the twinks telling the non-twinks what to do. "What, you are level 20 and don't have your Soulfire yet!? WIMP!"

This is a great weapon for any of the thousands of elemental-capable characters out there that do not yet have better...hench why you go on raids. If everyone in my guild had better equipment than anything found in the elemental planes, then why would we bother going there to raid? Get off your PoTime high-horse and come back down to where the real gamers are.

Did I say everything in the ele planes is junk and you should have better? No. I'm also not in PoTime yet. I'm just saying that this weapon is not that great considering where it drops...there are better weapons out there that are easier to get for many classes. And I showed a better weapon for bards that is from the same plane (it's actually from the same event...just a different part of it). For alot less work you can get a 17/20 1hb from ldon now too. To be fair, the percussion mod is nice for bards, but simply put: there are easier weapons (or the same difficulty) out there with better ratios (if ya don't believe probably haven't done dust ring in stated elsewhere're lucky if your guild does this more than 3 times). This also isn't a 'twink' issue...if you're in the elemental planes, you are probably well past the days of twinks (unless you're flagsharing in an alt to get rotting loot)

welcome to the real world, where not everything drops every kill of a mob. Runestamped Blade is the rarest drop on avatar of dust's loot table, and most guilds do this event once, because they can get the key piece on 2 or 3 people and be set. This is probably realistically the best bard weapon pre-time, other than runestamped blade, which drops from the same event but is also much rarer. As far as being the best for other classes...nah. Not saying it sucks or anything, but I'll agree that there are other items available for most classes, and easier to get. Runestamped blade however, is not realistically one of them.
If its not obvious enough

Dex +10
Cha +20
Int +15
Percussion Instrument

I wonder what class this was meant for...

ya know SOE... I don't think other classes would care too much if you made weapons with instrument modifiers BRD only. There are weapons out there for the other classes too.

And if no bards are present that need it? Grats rot... sure, guilds will have this go to a bard first, but having other options available is better than having good stuff go to waste.

Aye Grizlor that is a very good point and I overlooked that.

But I imagine that the raid force in this tier plane would be well over 40 or 50 people and that it would be extremely unlikely that there would be 0 bards present.

The other thing is that yes it should go to a bard but thats not always the case. If the guild uses DKP, then whoever wants to spend the points gets it. I think it SHOULD be bard only. Just like how rogues say that any weapon with backstab modifiers should be rogue only. But yeah you're right. The developers probably made it intended for bards but let other classes use so that in the rare case, it won't rot.

SOE wasn't consistant in that idea though. Just last night at a raid I saw two ENCH only weapons rot on PoP minis in PoI.

But trying to explain SOE's logic sometimes is impossible.
