#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 18 2005 at 10:00 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I can't believe they did this to the only tradeskill weapon ever made that was useful. I spent all my money for one on a different server for my warrior and now it is worthless. I hope they realize every time they ***** over twinks they are cutting off a little more of their own ******* because twinking is the only way to keep interest in the game and they are NOT getting new players ever, if they want any money at all they'll stop this sh*t very soon...
AAAA 60 lvl req :(

didn't realize it when i logged on my ranger thats been inactive while i was playing my other alts. didn't look at the weapon when i removed it from my slots (2 whips) and equipt my 2hs to work that skill :( when i went back to equipt it said race,diety. and or lvl thing grr when i looked at the req lvl i was mildly urked.... bs i was pissed lol .would have been cool to have a req lvl item on a 23 ranger :) Yep think sony is really trying to kill the game with all these nerfs. they should min make it a have lower stats if its below the lvl 60.

sorry for the rambling lol just hate when they nerf stuff like this and make it useless.

Worst change ever!

Not only is this uber weapon now useless to all lower level people, it's absolutely useless for those who qualify its requirements. At level 60, there are weapons that have better dmg/delay ratios and much better stats, so this essentially becomes vendor trash.

Fortunately, I have invested a lot more in other high-class weapons like Defenders Lightblade and, more recently, the Venomous Axe of the Velium Brood - which has a nice proc to negate the longer delay. The only guy in my account that would ever use it now is my 39 warrior, and I didn't spend too much money on the whips.

Moving right along...
required lvl 60?

wtf that is BS if Sony is going to change stuff like that they should at least refund the players that bought the items. I paid 2.5k for one and thats a really good price for the ratio. Now I can't use it on my bard for 29 lvls. The only good thing is that its still in his weapon slot...guess ill have to use my mace for selo's now tho :(

I was so saddened and angry when I saw that. Someone who had it equipped could still use it but I was bringing up my blunt and piercing when it happened. My ranger Velorah's main weaps are whips, I will be using them regardless because it is her personality, just ticks me off that my fav one is now useless for twenty levels. I fully agree that not many would use them in higher ranks: I will be one of the few although I keep being disappointed by Sony.

If it ain't broke, don't patch it.

You know... I am getting sick and tired of EQ changing items in my inventory. I have played EQ for 5 years now and they constantly repay losers like myself by making my items useless. Granted, I used these to play alts, but it was a good time with these things at level 20 or 30. And lets be serious, who is going to use these things at 60? I have submitted a petition to be either un-nerfed, or substantially compensated for the loss, or I am going to delete all my characters on two accounts... we all know that means that by the time anyone reads this, all my 5 years worth of character developement will be nothing but 16 empty character slots on two canceled accounts. If only Sony would have stopped nerfing items in people's inventory, maybe the game would have survived a little longer under the pressure given by WoW and EQ2 (cringe). Oh well... good bye Norrath, it's been real :-)

Aye, the patch turned a nice weapon into useless. Even without the required level, I never saw too many of these in the 50's, let alone the 60's. Now they are just useless. Why bother with this when weapons like the Sword of the Bloodsworn and Copper Hammer are around the same price, have stats, a recommended level instead of required, and a proc?

You might want to hold off on buying any of these until after the December patch. There's a rumor going around that they will be made Recommended level 60.

It's already done on the test server. EQtraders has a discussion on it. Link

wtb these or the aged scales. will pay 20k per whip, or 10k per scale. pst to feliz, or strongbad.
Very nice
# Sep 23 2004 at 11:22 PM Rating: Decent
I have a pair of these for my 28 warrior on Povar. 4K per whip is too much; I bought them for 800pp each at the bazaar. With haste items/spells, 246 STR and some damage shield potions, I will be literally unstoppable.

Yes, there are NO level requirements for this whip. I use it primarily because of the superb dmg/delay ratio. If this is combined with the Silver Chitin Hand Wraps, the effective specs become 14.04 delay, 12 dmg. Wurmslayer doesn't even come close.

I got two of these fine whips on the rp server today, theyre amazing with my haste song. Im only a 20th level bard, payed 400 for each from some kindly druid who wished to sell to the younger players im guessing. I also noted that it has the type 7 augment, which from my memory seems like the very type of very good augs of effects and procs that would otherwise be useless because of the type 7 aug requirement. Ill have these whips forever, it also adds a little rp flavor as they are whips. ^^
No Rec. Level?

If this indeed has no recommended level, it's a really nice twink 1hser.
RE: No Rec. Level?
# Jun 12 2004 at 8:39 PM Rating: Decent
Yeah, definately a good twink item for lower levels, given the lack of level requirement. No stats really to speak of, but it has two augment slots for minor enhancement. Overall, the dam/del is all it truly has going for it. 6K would seriously be a max price. Saw it for 4k in bazaar, which seemed decent for the item.

I has no required or recommended level asthe picture indicates. It is a very effective and fun weapon to wield at any level. It of course generates the WHIP sound and adds a little extra flavor to the battle. Real glads that a nice player made item like this came into existance.
