Well being a lvl 65 monk with 101 aa and caps at 300 atm, I am hitting with crits in upper 500's (w/o disc.). I won on a roll yesterday in Guk ldon. Works very well with mobs that are ds'ed. With bard haste and spell haste it wacks pretty fast considering the damage it does. I like it. I'll have to use it a bit more to see how it compares to my Staff of Flowing Water. The Graphics for a monk are actually pretty cool. It looks like a very "monkly" crooked staff, with "the lessons" to be learned on the end. Monks being the quiet type they appear to rely on "pounding it into your head" type of "lessons". lol... All in all it is a very nice weapon and plat for plat it packs a WACK... Mek
it's a music stand

Looks like a music stand with book on it. Or, if the Witness of Hate is a religious fellow, it is a metal lectern with the sacred text on it from which he does his witnessing. I have no idea what keeps the book on it when we're swinging it around.

The Look
# Apr 07 2004 at 1:47 PM Rating: Default
Well I read through all these listings and about gag myself, I understand alot of you are really 13 and below so the mentality is right with the age, but if you were facing some major baddy that can whoop up on you. Do you think he would stop and say nice sword you got there, it matches your eyes, and start a dossier on your looks, or is he gonna beat on you like orphan annie? End state is this: Looks are nice, but if the weapon does what you want it to do, then who gives a flying f*** what it looks like. Personally, I have one on my pally and he hits average 250-280s at lvl 55. I'm not scoffing at that dmg, his disc crit is around 500 cripple at near 800. And we all know pallies are the DPS machines like other classes. All in all I belive it's a sweet weapon, and if ppl want to sell it for cheap because of drop rate and looks, I say more power.

If you want to know what you're paying for:

(Ripostes and such not taken into account)

Relative DPS at 65((2xDamage + Bonus)/Delay) =
bigger = better

Windblade 3,30
WoHG 3,13


Windblade AC 15, DEX 12, STA 12, HP 35, Mana 35
WoHG Dex 20, Wis 8, Int 8, HP 50


Bazaar Prices afted GoD expansion:

Windblade 50k
WoHG 5k



Windblade looks like a 2-bladed axe.
WoHG well.. you'll look like your maths teacher with this.

and THAT is exactly why looks matter. Like When new weapons came out, they were FAR from uber, but I remember a spear that was very similar to the beetlestinger spear, technically beetlestinger was better with a proc and stats, but just because the weapopn looked cool - or was new it was like 10x more.

This weapon would look sweet if it was a partical effect weapon after that i think i might just buy one for a 15 monl just for the look

This staff seriously needs a better graphic. I have been using /feedback to try to get SOE to change the graphic on this puppy and make it look as bad as it should be. If you agree that its current graphic sucks please use /feedback and maybe SOE will change it!

DMG Bonus
# Nov 19 2003 at 12:39 AM Rating: Decent
I have a Shadowknight and was wondering what the requirements are to get the bonus dmg on this thing.
RE: DMG Bonus
# Nov 19 2003 at 5:09 AM Rating: Excellent
Damage bonus is based purely upon 3 things.

1) The delay of the weapon
2) Your level
3) Your class

Non-melee classes (read: priests and casters) get no dmg bonuses on weapons. The higher the delay on a weapon, the higher the bonus. has a table showing dmg bonuses per level/delay.

I bought this thing on Bristlebane server in bazaar for 3,500pp. At lvl 58 RNG, I think it did like 230 max damage (estimation). Now at lvl 61, my max damage with 260 str and 260 dex is 308; and the other day I got a double attack 308, 308 in Plane of valor and my group was like "Jeez Blaak, what weap you got"? I love when other say that! ;)

I'm not sure of what kind of damage to expect at 65 with 280 dex, 280 str because the damage bonus is only 40 right now at lvl 61. Sure hope it hits in the 400's ... I would do multiple cartwheels!

If you can dual weild, get rid of that piece of crap "Sword of the crypt keeper"! This 2HB weap kicks its butt!

The only bad thing about it is that it looks kinda dorky, I mean realy, a book on a stick! Might as well get thick nerdy glasses like the "Can you hear me now?" dude ..... lol.

Proc Augs
# Oct 06 2003 at 3:49 PM Rating: Decent
I got myself one of these almost 2 weeks ago now and couldn't be happier w/ the damage output, however what bothers me the most is that it has a type 1 augment slot, this thing doesn't need more stats it needs a proc added to it. The SoFW (prolly the best tradeable 2hb for a monk) has a type 4, even the Tstaff (which already has a proc) has a type 4 slot. I've been feedbacking everyday to change this one to a type 4. Please join the effort and feedback to change this to a type 4. Thanks

I have done 3 Lguk adventures or so and have killed 4 named got 2 of these some LAME boots and an avg leather tunic. Not sure if I am lucky or what but these seem kinda common

On bristlebane it would probably be 20-30k for being new, then drop to the 10-20k range...eventually selling for 10k or so, mainly because of the classes that can use it. SKs and pallys can get better 2 handers for those prices (Disease Imbued Greatstaff, Heavy Windriders Lance) but the low weight and monk tag is gonna drive up the price, since they do such insane damage with 2 handers after 59.

Just snagged one tonight on Cazic for 1800. Don't know how the drop rate is, perhaps this weapon will be LDoN's answer to the Centi Warspear and Weighty Polearm, otherwise excellent weapons undermined by the fact that they drop like candy and flood the market. But it was an upgrade for my SK, so oh well...

Heard of staf of flowing water?
Thats something monk would like to use; this great staf? not likely.
RE: Value?
# Sep 21 2003 at 4:03 AM Rating: Decent
Not likely? Are you mentally challenged? Let me restate what he said above. The ratio on this is very good, close to that of Flowing Water, add to that a little more for the longer delay too. The weight is great for monks too. Finally, the cost of this staff? 6-15k depending on server. Cost of the flowing water? 60-80k

What are you smoking?
RE: Value?
# Oct 02 2003 at 6:35 PM Rating: Decent
Staff of Flowing Water is great.

But, not all monks have 60K to 80K burning a hole in thier pocket.

This is still a darn fine monk weapon.
Would I pay 10K for it?
Not sure, problem is that the stats don't help a monk much. Dex is great, but monks go for STA, STR, AGI before Dex.
RE: Value?
# Oct 03 2003 at 2:37 PM Rating: Decent
You have a good point there, I can't carry much coin at all, or I get whopped on weight, and nobody seems to understand the idea of ML. I was kicked out of a group, for ML'ing the others thought I was takin it all for myself. But, I digress. I would not pay 40k for a few less delay/more dmg.
# Sep 16 2003 at 8:07 AM Rating: Decent
If you are a monk that happens to wear a robe, then dont make the mistake of walking around PoK with this weapon on, youll get asked for KEI. I guess people think that chanters can get glowing fists these days or something lol. Seriously tho, the graphic on this is one of those book staffs and it looks terrible : /

It's a rockin weapon for a ranger that is assisting. Regularly generates 300+ for me. Nice weapon.

I don't care if it looks like a stick with **** on it, I won one of these tonight in a lotto and it was doing massive damage. I'm keeping it.
