Vs. Earthcaller

I've been using a Stained Axe of the Scion for a while. Just got Swiftwind the other day, which at my level, (55) has exactly the same ratio. I'm still using the Stained Axe in primary.

Now I'm wondering if I should spend the 10kpp or so to get Earthcaller or just ignore it?

For comparison,

Earthcaller: 14 dmg 24 delay
Stained Axe: 14 dmg 21 delay
Direct damage advantage: Stained Axe

Earthcaller: Str: +15 Dex: +10
Stained Axe: Attack: +10
Melee output stat advantage: Earthcaller, until Str and Dex max.

Earthcaller: HP: +50 SvAll: +5
Stained Axe: HP: +40 SvFDP: +7 Sta +6
Survival advantage: Stained Axe?

Earthcaller: Slow + DoT
Stained Axe: Proc added by Aug
Effect advantage: Earthcaller, if you like agro

I don't think the Wisdom is worth much, except for tradeskills, and I'd keep it for that.

At this point, Earthcaller may have a SMALL advantage. If I had it, I'd use it, but does this justify the cost of an SEoC MQ?

Spend the plat, the Earthcaller is worth it. It's all about the 50% slow proc.
One of the best ranger weapons you can buy
# Sep 23 2004 at 8:38 AM Rating: Default
This is honestly one of the best 1hs ranger weapons you can buy in the bazaar. It has a pretty high recommended level so I never started using it until the 40's. It has great damage/delay ratio. Its not too fast so you won't pull aggro as much with it. And the best thing is the +10 attack rating helps with the bow. When I sit back and just fire with my bow, this is always equiped to help those arrows hit. And the great thing is that on Veeshan, they are about 200 to 300 plat.
what is updated?

RE: what is updated?
# Jun 18 2004 at 6:25 PM Rating: Decent
Vengeance II was taken off and a +10 Attack modifier was added instead.
# May 13 2004 at 11:18 AM Rating: Decent
On Xegony server got on of these for 200pp.
Price has dropped since,now like 150pp.
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 09 2004 at 1:52 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Yea my level 40 ranger WAS useing this till there weapon nerf patch. Also with that weapons nerf you no longer get full effect from effects like regen, flowing thought, and vengence. Before even if a peice of equipment was rec level 65, a level 1 would get full effect from the regen, ft, vengence. Now the +attack or whatever is part of the rec level.

This item was nerfed.

It now has no effect on it.

Reccomended Level
# Jan 05 2004 at 1:58 AM Rating: Excellent
This has little to do with the axe but I just wanted to say how reccomended level effects damage on weapons. If your level 1 has a reccomended level of 60 weapon and it says 1 damage, how can they hit for 21? Well it seems to me the reccomended level really only effects backstab, PvP and stats, not normal melee damage.
So this axe is really great for any level, forget about the number in red.
RE: Reccomended Level
# Jan 29 2004 at 3:41 PM Rating: Decent
Its not supposed to work that way, but the recommended level damage restriction is currently broken. It is supposed to work on normal melee, too. It will probably be fixed sometime.

I am sure I will get flamed... but I think when they say 10 attack, maybe they mean 10 levels?

before I am flamed, one I own the damn thing, im not just speculating. and 2....

On my ranger... maybe it was/is bugged? My attack (and no im not lying) went from 259 -> 731 - that is 472 attack. lol.

I was thinking 259 is REALLY low... so I checked stuff out several times. I did not have buffs on. Now I have heard of some 'recomendeds' being bugged giving the FULL bonus. So I think it brought me up to a lvl 60 bonus?!? And I need to look again but I think Firefist actually brought me down?

Maybe it was a bug, or a 100% accidental exploit. I was swapping weapons, had haste on and off... had firefist on and off. Etc. Only other thing I can think of is I was in HHK (lvl 33... getting 34 back) Maybe I was disempowered by a goblin there? However even well after the fact I kept taking it off and putting it on. I wanted to Show my girl the stats and what it looked like, and I go, "oh and it helps my....attack a bit, DEAR GOD!"

I use this and a Centi short, I also carry around a Poisonous Brood axe (cant remember exact name)

Anyone else experience this?

Well, its honestly just +10 to attack.

However, what I suspect YOU did, is look at attack with NO weapon equipped, which would most likely be horribly low, since most rangers never bother to train hand to hand skill. Then, you put the 1hs axe in your hand, and saw the attack go up massively, since you probably have maxxed 1hs skill.

Try this: equip a Different 1hs weapon (the venomous axe of the velium brood would be good. Don't use the centi, as it has a +str modifier)in your hand, look at attack. NOW, swap it for this. How much did attack go up?

The primary things that affect your attack stat, are Offense skill, weapon skill (checks off primary hand weapon) and strength.

#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 21 2003 at 10:17 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Have it in prim with my 22 Barb war an a CLS in 2nd. is this good? the axe is for effect an the CLS is for damage. i also have a FBSS, which helps out a lot.

Exactly how did you get this RANGER ONLY axe in the primary slot of your warrior? Either you are thinking of a different axe, or you're just making things up.

Would this weapon be good for a 42 ranger?
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 10 2003 at 3:47 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Not unless you have nothing better. The recommended level on this would bring the stats down by about 33% making it pretty weak compared to other ranger weapons out there available for your level.

Vegenance II for me at 59 is a point 14 attack bonus.

What lvl does this work at?
Used by a 18 ranger
# Oct 22 2003 at 12:52 PM Rating: Default
I just bought this weapon on monday (10/03)and it works well with my light blade defender. My ranger is only 18 so i guess hes a little twinked.=) It hits for around 17-20 and hits 2 time at once. Plus it makes my LBD sword hit ever 4 sec.s which that hits for 28. So considering i just got my duel wending and was wisely advised to wait to train anything until i got DW, i can now dps like no one else ive seen.In cunlutioin I Give this weapon an 8 out of 10. Its great for low levl to idk? I bought this weapon for 2k and in the bazaar on (the rathe)

Lucidus 18 ranger

aye, at your lvl i used centi/wurmy combo, all the way to 45, they i bought this axe to replace centi.... at 18, your doing more harm then good with this wep

This weapon is NOT good for twinking, and your 18 ranger would be better off with a lamentation than this.

Since it has such a high recommended level, you're lucky to get the equivalent of a 6 damage weapon (if even that) at level 18.

Plus, this weapon would have no effect on the speed at which a DLB would hit. You'll get your dual wield check every 3.4 seconds, regardless of the delay of the primary weapon. Of course, a Defender's lightblade is another weapon that would be awful for a level 18. A centi shortsword would outdamage DLB at your level.

Yes you're apparently very twinked, just not very WISELY twinked.
RE: Used by a 18 ranger
# Jan 21 2004 at 6:13 PM Rating: Default
LOL. Recomended levels do NOT lower the weapons damage. It will act as a 14/21 weapon even at level 20.
# Oct 19 2003 at 1:24 PM Rating: Decent
I have a Curved Claws in my primary and currently one of these in my secondary. I was considering perhaphs a Tae Ew Longsword as a replacement but I am not convinced. I am currently a lvl 52 Ranja... any suggestions guys? I would appreciate your feedback on this. Thanks

That "required" setting in the database has nothing to do with what is required to use the item, it is what is required to obtain it. its status as a no-drop/lore, etc item is what determines the rest.

Got one from a guildie yesterday. This thing rocks. Same guildie got yet another one during the day so if his luck keeps up all the rangers in guild will be carrying one.
