HQ ore from FS weapon

Hey all, here's that conversion: 1 fine steel weapon & 1 water flask in a forge yield 1 small brick of high quality ore. Note: 1 fine steel 2-hander will yield 2 small bricks. Not sure of trivial.

Fine Steel weapons also drop in Guk, though I can't remember what the exact name of the warrior frog mobs was.

these are some nice weapons if you ask me. especially for anyone 35 and under. My warrior is 37 and these still do me good but thinking of upgrading sometime soon. But a great deal for the value. I used rusty weps until this guy was selling two of these for 50pp a piece and i couldnt refuse. I was lvl 28 then so I was really a twink then. hmm does anyone have any suggestions of what weps to upgrade to next? maybe giant militia longsword, i think thats what they are callled, those a way nice. it would last me till prolly 50 or so. then i will upgrade to a centi shortsword and a shaded blade, although at 50 these will seem like the best weps in the game. I will hopefully have enough money for them

Remember that all fine steel weapons can be converted to ore -- very handy for smiths, and often cheaper or easier to obtain. Sure, they're crappy weapons for high-end players -- but they're loaded with oh-so-good metal. =)

Very true,

Ironically, this was not the case yet, when I posted the message below. This was EXACTLY the kind of change I was referring to, when I said Verant (SOE, now) might implement some new recipe, although I'll have to admit, I wasn't expecting ore conversion.
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 27 2002 at 11:20 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) As of this writing i found out the item has been updated. Not to offend but i find it pointless to update what mobs drop this weapon. I dont think anyone visits this site to find out what mobs drop this and when i saw it under updated items i nearly fell over.

Accurate information is never pointless. With all the new smithing recipes coming out, who's to say they won't put in weapons that require one of these as a component. I know the Ogre Cultural weapons call for some old world weapons as components (sharkbone warhammer, for example). IF that were to happen, it would certainly be nice to see that this fine site has kept the info updated.

Thanks Allakhazam, for the thorough work, even if it is not always appreciated!

I respectfully disagree. When I was a newbie what MOB dropped what stuff was important as I didn't have a lot of cash and not a lot of opportunities for even slight twinking. (Of course at that time I could of gotten any FS weapoms anyway, but it was nice to know where I could look for it in the future.) BTW, a big thanks to all of the strangers who were kind enough to give my new characters stuff along the way.

If someone is greedy enough to actually charge a newby with a rusty weapon anything for these is a greedy ****. Truth is these suck quite bad. mEven a giant malitia long sword is way better andthey are commen as hell in velius and can be purchused at vendors in Turg for 15 pp and are there quite often.

Yeah, but how's a level 5 melee gonna survive long enough in velious to find a merchant? When I started my warrior, nearly a year ago, this was the third weapon he ever had. First was the newbie sword, second a tarnished shortsword. It did the job until I could get high enough level to hunt stuff that dropped loot better than 9cp whiskers and such. Once he could kill bears and lions, his finances improved vastly, but until that point, this beat the heck out of what he had.
Good for newbs

I looted one of these as a lvl 9 off of a blue Blyle Bundin in BBM. Better than a tarnished weapon & cheaper than buying something from a merchant in Kaladim.

If you run across someone camping the druids in East Commons, you can get them cheap. I got mine for 5pp, which is the same they were getting from the vendor.
buy it at a vender
# Jun 13 2001 at 7:43 AM Rating: Default
You can buy these off a vendor for about 70pp so instead of contaacting this guy just go to a vendor for a bargain basement price (in comparison)

these are great starter weapons but i've seen them go up to 100pp which is really F&^%ed up.i get them off of gnolls though. it's best to just sell these to vendors
