Just wanted to mention for anyone considering doing this quest. I have this weapon and the graphic is fairly unique (looks like one of those large primative blades from Rujarkain Hill LDONs.)
As of the date of this post, the blade does not have any type of augment slot on it - which sucks cause an Anger 3 augment would be great. Additionally, the proc, Vindication of Stone, does not stun npcs over roughly level 57. Doesn't seem fair as some of the other rewards include a focus that works up to level 65.

#REDACTED, Posted: May 18 2004 at 5:41 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Just thinking about if SOE upgraded sk's epic to be the best sk wep in EQ. It would have to be like...
RE: Sk epic, best sk wep in game

Bah, that would be junk; no HP or Mana on it. :)
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 08 2004 at 3:06 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) that would just be gay and ruin the game because that sk would be able to solo just about anything, a weapon like that would hit for around 1000, maxed haste would bring it to like 1.3 seconds per swing and in each swing with caped aa's you would hit 3 times,3000dps if everything checked well.... that 84/40 zerker axe almost already ruins game, im sure it can do around 1-2k dps with good checks, able to solo as well as a whole grp of 65's that arnt time enabled could....i could see the wpn ur talkin about soloing bot tower bosses, MB,any old world planes. just get one of those 5k totems that make you invincable for 18 seconds, 18 x 2kdps, around 40k,then all the time you would have after that to hit, or just use another or find a way to do it more, use fortitude disc, another 12 seconds of pure dodgin.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 20 2004 at 11:39 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) this weapon would not allow people to solo bot tower mobs , mb or old world planes. WTF are you talking about. AE's from those > this sword.

The epic is just a quest, it was only called epic by the playerbase. Theres no reason there can't be additional item upgrades to it in the future that i can see.

That's why on the main EQ website they are advertising for Omens with the headline 'EPICS 2.0'
RE: so much better than pally epic
# Oct 27 2006 at 9:17 PM Rating: Decent
Well what happened there was Sony capitalized upon what the player base called those quest rewards. Keep in mind that Sony didn't create the original Epic quests... they inherited it from Verant.

Sony isn't going to advertise... "Really-long-quests-with-a-nice-reward-just-like-that-class-quest-from-Kunark" When they can say "Epics 2.0" and have a much bigger impact :)

Wizards epic effect saves my life on a routine basis. I would have to find one hell of a sweet primary item before Id replace mine

WTF is with this. Great weapon for Pally as usual but the SK get the short end w/ no INT !!!
Like half the other weapons out there for SK.
# Jan 06 2004 at 6:01 PM Rating: Decent
WTF is right... I play a SK, and I'd be overjoyed to get the weapon. So there is no INT on it, big deal. Its still a better weapon than any I'm likely to see anytime soon. The dam/dly, proc, and AC on this weapon alone make it sweet. Whining about it because one stat isn't on there is just ridiculous... sad at how often these kind of complaints surface on these boards.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 25 2004 at 4:44 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) WTF what? I've seen too many weapons for my paladin where its pal/sk only or close to it with +INT and no +WIS. So stop crying over this 1. I'm glad sony is finaly realizing the inbalance of Paladin only items and SK only items. Take the droppale weapons that are Paladin only and SK only for an example. Paladins have Jeldorin, Two 2HBs that are pretty crappy with an effect that can't be used till 49 or later which heals 180hp but barely procs. those are the best of the paladin only weapons. Now for the SK only weapons. Disease Imbued Greatstaff, Black Bastardsword, a required lvl 55 2hs, required lvl 55 1hb that has a lifetap proc and decent stats with 24dmg 25dly or 25dmg 25dly, a nice twink 1hb (MoSS), Noc Blade (twink 1hs), and more since there's so many I can't remember them all.
# Dec 31 2003 at 7:02 PM Rating: Excellent
yes, and the half of the paladin/sk weapons with int have no wis. would you rather be restricted to ONLY weapons with int? and just take sk off all weaps with no int?
# Jan 23 2004 at 7:04 AM Rating: Default
You should realize that at 65 (Which is about what is required to get this) that 15 int for an SK isin't all that great if it's over 200 as is...

Actually, from what I've seen of the quest for these weapons most epics seem easier. That quest is no joke. ;)

this weapon really rocks. 40 ac and 125 hp makes it nearly compareable to emperor sword.

and to do any epic beside cleric epic nowadays is just for the lore anyway - noones going to use most epic because u can buy far better stuff.

All the druids and rangers I know either got their epics, or want them (well, the haste part for rangers).

Druid Epic has a dot that stacks with all their usual dots, and lasts a long time.

Ranger epic has 40% haste.

Not saying there aren't better items out there, but you cannot "buy much better stuff".

Name a 40% haste item that is purchasable, and not rare as heck ( I know of ONE 40%+ droppable haste item, a belt, that I've seen for sale ONCE). Now, name a druid primary with better stats, and a dot, or other effect, that isn't no drop.

Didn't think so.

Epics are still a useful part of the progression of characters and guilds, thru the levels of EQ.

NO, they are not the END of that progression. They are KUNARK era weapons, but as such, they are still very nice ones.

Admittedly, some epics still have GREATER utility than others. Most of the melee epics don't match up well with the newer weapons, including some that are tradable.

However, even the warrior epic (the hate taunt blade, at least), which is often cited as one which is outdated, is better than MOST droppable weapons. many warriors use that blade until they can get something like cord-hilted spike driver, bloodfrenzy, Blade of carnage, or Scepter of destruction to replace it with.

There are 11 items in Temple of Veeshan that have 41% haste. Its a lot easier to get your guild to raid ToV than to help with all the steps of your epic

He misspelled 'arrogant'.

Which you then misinterpreted as 'ignorant'.

Now I find *that* to be funny...

Oh Noez, I misunderstood RetardSpeak, and you decided to harass ME for it! now that I find funny!

Umm, that's not quite true, the bard epic is still worth getting because it acts like all the instruments AND is a weapon, plus the delay/attack ratio ISN'T that bad.

Your right Lynix and don't you think that it's a shame that the Epic's for most classes are now considered so poor.

Come on SoE make us a new epic quest that adds on to the end of the present ones with some REAL reward!

I thought epic augments would be cool. Augments that only affect your epic weapon(s) or gloves for all you monks out there. /feedback it, if we don't ask for it, they'll never give it.
RE: so much better than pally epic
# Dec 09 2003 at 10:41 AM Rating: Decent
Building onto current epics, would mean they would be better than all weapons, thats pretty much how "epic" weapons are ment to be. There for ranger weapons would be like 25/20 and pally epic 55/30 and SK epic 60/35...........

Those would be a Little bit too uber, and besides epics just arent epics without lore, and lore is pretty much lost from EQ, hell its at the point where, GM's are advertising Server wide, in game during game play !!.... sonys about the money, not about the lore.....

The reason why i said they arent epics without lore is because, they would just be more items to farm and to quest the uber weapons to conquer something else.. It wouldnt have much of a loreistic value to the player.....

thats just my honest opinion...
