omfg, what is this, why do any of the old classes even bother with epics when the new classes get a better one, yeah i complain because i play an sk, i dont have mine, and im not even sure if its worth it, i mean, it sucks compared to alot of droppable weapons and compared to other epics, speacially this one, its no where near worth the effort!!!!!

Hey, I know! Lets nerf the Bard epic too while we are at it! Why? Because unlike most melee epics, the Bard epic is still a highly useful weapon until you reach the Elemental planes.

Oh, and what about the Cleric and Druid epics!? We cant have pre-Time casters with 20Wis 1-handers and free clicky effects when melee epics are so gimp, now can we?

Please note the above is mostly sarcasm. But it also shows that not all the epics are outdated. Also, consider the level and difficulty needed to get those epics compared to what is needed to get the Zerker weapon. I've seen several of the zerker hits, and they are anything but easy.

Oh yes.... tougher stuff... how many raid-needing mobs do you really have to wait for though? The scareling?

While on the other hands, warriors need to sit for 72hours at a time, inculding the chance Severilious skips a spawn, for the offchance that he will drop his Green Dragon Scales?

Or Shadowknights getting Soul Leech?

Or either trying to get after the Spiroc Lord? That's not just a tough raid for the "lower levels" that this quest can be done at, but on my server, any raid in PoSky is very rare. It's entirely a guild matter, and if you're not in a guild that can handle it, you're out of luck, because that raid is way too risky for pickup style.

Don't nerf the Berserker Epic. Give the other melees epics that and 2x as good and 2/3 as hard and it'll be even, IMHO.

So Ireblind Imp is easy? go kill him for me then turbo so i can loot the drop for my epic :) Ireblind Imp is THE hardest mob out of any epic ever, if you dont think so - go try him ( oh and btw if youre not in a guild that can handle PoSky chances are you will never see a good weapon, not a flame but its true, you cant solo your epic unless you are a rogue hehe )

Very easy solo for necro if you have the skills and spells. Gear doesn't even make a huge difference in the fight. Hardest epic mobs are those who deathtouch. Thats over 1000dps alone hehe.

Nerf this epic or improve the others... Pally epic has horrible stats and ratio. This ratio is uber as hell and they can still use the same weapons as paladins plus the axes!

People just don't get the concept, that what's good for one, is often good for all.

Think of it like this: Would you rather have a 'zerker with this weapon fighting at your side? Or a 'zerker with a kunark era weapon?

I agree that the old epics are outdated, but nerfing, (or complaining about,) this one isn't the answer.

First off I'd like to say.. "Short Sword of the Ykesha" with its amazing 8dmg 24delay and 75dmg with stun proc was the most amazing weapon ever! Back in the day... Its been over 5 years and well that weapon is handy for pets now :)...

Second, zerker axe is awesome... and huge upgrade from my 44/48, I will have a happy heart when I get it :)

Third, why whine about a new class getting a new epic that is well, epic. If it had, OLD stats then why would it be epic?

Fourth, Epic weapons were Epic back when they came out, the new Epic upgrades will be Epic when they come out.. You wont see me whining when you get your new second generation Epic and it has better stats than my little ol axe of ire and its an off hand piercer...

Fifth, be well have fun and don't neglect life :)

/agree, even if these zerker weps are soooo offbalancing, so what! I would love to have a zerker in group with one, but no all these peeps want it nerfed so the group can't kill as fast just so they can feel like they are doing something... sheesh come on.

THIS WEAPON WAS MADE ABOUT 4 YEARS AFTER THE OLD EPICS. DING DONG, DING DONG! don't complain, u lazy piece of sh*t. u have no idea what ur ***** talkin about. 1st of all :) why would it be anything like the old epics, tell me that. DO YOU KNOW HOW OLD THEY ARE? THEY AREN'T WORTH GETTIN ANYMORE. KAoI=WORTH GETTING, because= its brand new. hence, its good. think another 4 years down the line. its gunna be trash-o-matic u punk. second, what, are u a ***** moron or something? RE-EHH. a 40/40 ratio is so freakin bad, like why dont pallys, or sk's, or wars go buy something that has a better ratio? OH NO WAIT, they already do. third) maybe ur just not getting me yet, maybe theres something in that head of yours that keeps you from becoming completely logical. the only reason ur whining and complaining, is cause u dont have a high lvl zerker of ur own. hahaha, must be really hard watching zerkers go by with their epics, huh. oh, maybe if you took a little time out of that thing they call a "life" (that is if you aren't 'smoking cigarettes' or 'drinking beer')you could go reflect, and realize what a complete SUNAVABIATCH you are. next post, write ur real name+number. cmon, we'll fight sometime. it'll be splendid! note: this was all directed towards Shemfade, i have nothing against you others who have nothing against zerkers, i consider you as fine people.
#REDACTED, Posted: May 04 2004 at 12:19 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The point IS NOT that zerkers have better sh*t and yada yada. Get your newbie heads out of your asses and take a look at what we have here. We have a PoP ERA weapon, that was retardidly (yes i know its not ****** a real word) put into the game being called an "epic" quest, when it was very little like the Original, Authentic epics.
# May 01 2004 at 12:42 PM Rating: Decent
hey, I have an idea, how about everybody stops beating up on berserkers for like...what, 5 seconds? they are dps, pure dps. just as basic said, wars take hits, and zerkers dish hits. wars are sucky dps anyway, and what they have now is more than fine for hp+aggro purposes. stop crying about the epic, and posting what you think other epics should be. as I said before on my other post, it is new. meaning=it is good. 2 years from now? it wont compare with anything else, just like the epics of old dont compare with anything now. hi mom.
# Apr 30 2004 at 9:14 PM Rating: Default
yup warriors get the raw end of the deal here u want good warrior epic stats??? here is what i think:

Blade of Tactics/Strategy
skill: 1H slashing Delay:20 damage:40 STA +30 STR +20 DEX +20 AGI +10
Rage of tallon/vallon (combat) (vallon and tallon depend on blade) ATK +20 haste 20% (the atack and haste is on each blade coming out to +40 attack and 40% haste) WT 3.0 size medium
class: WAR
race: ALL

this epic is cool. but why sit there and compare to warriors and pallies? warriors take hits pallies stuns, berserkers are damage dealer it same with rogues. rogues have a cool epic to. little out of date but its EQ. think of the role the class and what they got and stop ******* because you to lazy to make one and level it up

everyone listen up. is this a good weapon? of course it is. and very worth it, considering ratio/stats/ect. but before u all keep complaning again, remember what the other epics were like back in the day? they were good. just as this one is now. ill admit, i think this wep is way overpowered myself, but in a couple years or so, ur gunna look at this and say, wow, what a crappy wep, because its been outdated. all weps in EQ get outdated once and a while, but for now, its this weps turn to get the fame.

7 years later and it's still not a crappy weapon.

It's pretty OP at level 46 when you can get it and lasts a long time.
After 16 years, I'm not listing every friggin character.

Is this Plane of Time loot or something? Warriors have to get to RZ in PoP to get a 2Her that compairs to this(BoW). Figures.
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 15 2004 at 4:30 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Why would they change this? im sorry but if u dont like it GO buy the expansion for an extra 30$ or more and make a berserker. I payed a extra 30$ for this expansion, and the class. the epic is damn well worth it IMHO. For those of u that are complaining WHAT do u care if u didnt buy the expansion? your "epic" was the best when it came out. This is the Best "questable" weapon now. If they were to make New epics They would still have to give zerks a new one or there would still Be complaints. and it would have to be better than this one. If u realy dont like this 1 item (out of like 25000) then quit. honestly is 1 item realy that bad? Now quit ur ******** go play and go play ur char. if u realy like the game you will do your epic for the pride of having doing one of the hardest quests in the game and having a unique graphiced weapon. I have a 65 iksar warrior and i did his epic even when i had better. I just wanted the satisfaction of doing it. DO i think stats are good on this one? hell yah! better than most? By far. BUt I realy dont give a ****.
Super Epic?
# Apr 15 2004 at 3:12 PM Rating: Decent
Instead of all the trouble it would take to change the existing epics to match the berserker epic's power, and to change all the mobs involved in the current epics to make the challenge equal to the prize, why not just make a second epic for all the classes (possibly requiring the original epic as a quest component)? I really don't see why they can't do this, whether it be using the current expansions or another future expansion. It would make alot of people happy, and would also restore epic quests to their former glory.

RE: Super Epic?

Really, all they'd have to do is put in a quest for an augment with enough stats to bring the epics up to date (say Type 9), and have each one be class specific. Then change all the epics to have a slot for Type 9's, and all's well. Still have to get the old epic to use the augment, but then you can update the old weapon with this new quest, and I can be walking around with my flaming sword again.

An Epic to Solo For
# Apr 15 2004 at 2:40 PM Rating: Decent
I must agree there should be a way for us solo players to aquire their epic based on their personel skills not the fact that you can gather a bunch of people to totally destroy a moob. What is the challange there
I don't want to down play the guilds and their collective worth but gaining notarity from 50 peeps slaying one bad guy no matter how hard it is well just say its harder to get the people together then it is to kill the moob
Isn't this EverQUEST the word quest somehow rings of a single nature, and would it not be the ultimate to have an epic piece that you yourself alone got
I am very glad to see them raising the stats from the old Kunark days, now they need to review all the epics and make them more worthy of the hassle like the prayer shawl maxing out at 8+ on all stats only is a joke by todays standards
Just my 2 cents

Your ideas are good, but you forgot one thing: This is an Massively Multiplayer Online RPG. The name alone should require that the game have more features for multiple people, not just one person. If you want to do an epic quest all by yourself, go play a regular RPG. This is a game where people come together from all around the world to accomplish huge goals. There's just no getting around that, and the game will never change.

That said, solo players can still have an enjoyable experience, and can do quests on their own, sometimes with a very good reward (as in tradeskill quests), but they will never quite equal up to the goals you can accomplish with help from your friends. This is a multiplayer game. 'Nuff said.

Try and Solo the War Epic... or even get a small guild to help you with the War Epic. Drops from Two named Mobs in the Planes? It would be nice, if we had the abilitiy to be in a huge guild where I can log on and throw a raid together, however I am not so selfish that I would ask some who is raiding Fear for the drop if I am not a part of the guild doing the raiding.

I enjoy the aspects of MMORPGs. But I, like many others, can only play sporadically and for a few hours a week. I have tried to join a few guilds, but could never play consistently enough to offer value. It was not fair to the guild. At the same time, I have been playing EQ for years and have multiple 60+ chars. I am nothing if not persistent. I just thought it would be nice if they could figure out some way to reward you for your skill as a player and not how social you are. That way if your gear sucks, it is because you suck, not because you canít join a guild.

Not fair to the guild?

I disagree. My guild has plenty of people in it who are only on sporadically- some of whom are away for months at a time. We enjoy their company whenever they do get on. You can join a guild and then help them out whenever you are on, then occasionally ask them for help. There is nothing wrong with being a casual player. Besides this game isn't just about getting exp and gear, it's also about socializing and chatting. If you are a good chatter that alone provides plenty of value... hence all the lowbies in my guild. Personally I WISH I had more people in my guild asking for help so that I would actually have something to do. Asking people for help with killing something is not imposing on them IMO, it's making the game more interesting for them.
Warm bodies...
# Apr 15 2004 at 2:26 PM Rating: Decent
There are certainly many aspects of all the epics that require patience and persistence. (Rare spawns/drops etc.) But when it comes right down to it, most epics can't be obtained without a guild or other large group. I know that some of the epics can almost be soloed by a level 65, but they were not created for level 65ís. It just seems sometimes that getting your epic is just a matter of waiting your turn. I hear too often: ĎI am next on the list to get the {epic drop x) when my guild raids {epic zone y}'. I just wish the epic quest (or some other quest) could be created to reflect your skill and/or persistence as an individual player instead of an indicator of how many warm bodies you could muster for a raid. I am certainly not trying to diminish all the hard work and cooperation that is required to get an epic. I just wish there was something as visible and unique that truly reflected the degree of skill you have with your class and the amount of work that you and you alone were willing to endure.

It would take a MASS of clomplaints with a credible threat of people canceling their accounts to even make them worry enough about their bottom line, to even make them look at the subject. Then all they would do is nerf the Zerker epic....after all thats less work. How many people do you know who actually care enough to even stop billing for a week to protest? Bet its not many.

What the hell? Berserkers get this insane item while im stuck with a Fiery defender. Great. Paladins shouldnt even bother with their epic, because it sucks and if this is the Beserkers epic then they need to update all the epics to balance this.
