In my opinion about equal to a gomdurig for a rogue. The lower delay makes up for the lower damage proc and the lack of a backstab modifier.

Not a bad general melee weapon for any of the classes usable, definitely not a "OMG ROGUE ONLY!!!!!" weapon. Not worth the money it's currently going for.

Got one of these tonight, no idea what to sell it for though. What have they been going for?
aggro getter

Extremely nice for keeping aggro. I have this on my lvl 60 warrior and it procs like mad. The proc seems to get aggro better than my previous one for some reason. Very cool.
price gotta be wrong ?

Is it me or does this thing have the same ratio as a Stained Axe of the Scions ? i.e 50pp in the bazaar. Stats not bad here and proc nice but axe has vengeance II aswell. Anyway just a fort :)

True this does have the same ratio is the stained axe:
Damage: 14 Delay: 21
Sta: +6 Wis: +10 Fire Resist: +7 Disease Resist: +7 Poison Resist: +7 HP: +40 Mana: +35

The axe is also ranger only and recomended level of 60. This Shiv can be used by multiple classes and has better mele stats in my opinion. and not nearly as common as the axe it drops off a level 65+ mob in a GoD zone. I just love it with my wind-worn handblade/copper hammer.

I do think 100K is high though but I saw it sell in the bazaar for that amount.. probably a better value for half that amount..value 50k LOL.. Oh well happy hunting all.. and if you happen to get on of these.. Enjoy it.. it is a fun weapon =)

Actually, it drops off a level 50 mob that I can solo as a mage.

Laff maybe 50k 2 years ago. The god tradeskill items are 16/20 with better melee stats than this, and sell for 15k. I would put this thing at no more than 7k

ok i even think that 7k would be to much maybe 4k at most.

the tradeskill items are recommended level of 63 and required level of 60. Tell me how would a lvl 45 which would benefit a lot from this weapon use a tradeskill weapon. There is also the proc which is a little bonus.

Think before you speak and know what your talking about also i dont know which server your on but on the one im on tradeskill items sell for 30k+

well even on CT server the tradeskill items or weps only go for around 9-15k so i think you guys are getting served on your server with all them trades ppl
Nice weapon

This weapon is really neat to look at as well as to wield. It is a small steel futuristic dagger with blue scroll work on the blade.. Nice stats and ratio.. and only required level 45 to wield such a weapon is nice. While no back stab modifier, I am using it on a ranger to keep skill up.. anyhoo anyone who gets this will be happy to use or to sell in the bazaar. Happy Hunting =)

My level 51 warrior loves this weapon, he uses it in primary, and it works incredibly for taking agro off over zealous casters who choose to heal too soon. Of course my warrior is running with 146 dex unbuffed, so he puts off quite the light show. :)

And go ahead and flame, Warrior did not loot, but bought it at exceptionally low low price in bazaar from a toon in dire need of coins.

While I agree its a nice/decent rogue weapon, it is also a sweet MA's weapon as well, to help hold agro. This of course and sword of the bloodsworn in secondary.

I just like the name: Eyeshiv! Should proc Blindness"...

that has got to be one of the best rogue weapons made so far, the proc is okay, but the dmg/ratio is awesome (bonus dmg)

"that has got to be one of the best rogue weapons made so far"

True if you dont count the Luclin, PoP, and Ldon expansions.
# Apr 20 2004 at 3:51 AM Rating: Decent
[/Red]Or any of the Ssra daggers for that matter blow this away, just my 2 cents[Red]
# Feb 28 2004 at 12:39 PM Rating: Good
one of the best rogue weapons? obviously you havent seen the gargoyle talon or wicked shank from BoT towers...dirk of deception from LDON with the 2dmg aug...not to mention the elemental/time drops for rogues...and no telling what type of velium gemmed dagger will come out soon made by this has no backstab modifier...subpar rogue weapon
