correct me if im wrong but the roman numberals IV = 4 does it not? Than why are people referring GuardIV as Guard3?
RE: .....

numberals = numerals
RE: .....

V is 5 in Roman numerals. IV would then be 5-1=4.

Listed stats are not correct, unless this weapon has been nerfed recently.. is shown with the correct stats

Only wrong stat I see now is 35 AC instead of 40. It wasn't nerfed, it was upgraded on 9-16 (increased hp, mana, and ac), and then on 12-22 (added proc).
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 09 2004 at 3:24 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) this is a sweet weapon no matter what way you look at it. I play a pally as my main and even though I may say that I cant hold my own in battle I am full of &^$^ I use a 1hs weapon and a shield and I would sell my first born for this lol jk but it has to be the best I have ever seen in the game for pallys and ok so hopebringer gives a 150 (or what ever it is) heal big deal at the high end lvls whats that going to do heal a scratch the affect on this would stop you from even taking the damage and as for the pallys that are in a group with a warrior and take the argo and dont let it go need to be hit upside the head and told to get over them selves because Im sorry we can be great tanks when were the only thing there to do the job but a warrior is ment to take a bigger beating then we are thats why we get the heal spells and they dont but you want to see how a true pally should play when in groups with warriors or even SK's that are told to be the MT or if you even want to see how one should do it if there the MT come over to the Nameless server and group with Dafmer Im a lvl 62 pally that isnt geared with planes gear and doesnt have the uber items that the game has to offer but pallys are the good guys where you ones that are to try are best to keep the group alive even if it means staying and fighting to the bitter end while your group can flee heck get its argo take the beating and then start healing your self TAB button heal TAB button your healing and still fighting then when you group is far enough away root and run like you have never ran before we get a 90% rez spell for a reason (or use you invuln spell 20sec invuln aka life saver). ok Im done preaching now lol but I mean it come on over to the nameless server I would be more then happy to group with you or even talk with you about these things

Guard3 = useless for a start it doesnt stack with Vie
I would not use this over my Cudgel of venomous hatred 45/28 - 150hp heal, even if i lowered myself to pay dkp for it in a moment of drunken frenzy.
Paladins got the best deal in GoD on 1handers with flanged prayer mace 54/30 with 180hp heal while sk's got jipped with 49/30 and a ****** dot which means 9 out of 10 sk's would never use it on raids or mez heavy groups anyhow.

the reason paladins get better weapons is because we don't have actual DDs unless you call flame of light 125dd or the quellious line of stuns 108DD actual damage. SKs get pets, dots/snares, lifetaps, and HT, i think it's pretty fair
crap item
# Jun 22 2004 at 11:07 AM Rating: Default
This sword sucks and just takes a loot slot from the mob .
Usuall knights use 2h weapons for the dps , and take a 1h and shield for tanking / defensive .
When you arrive this end zone , you need warriors for the tanking anyway .
And , every paladin who arrives here has already a top end 1h weapon , be it the Hopebringer from Time , or the common Flanged Prayer Mace from Uqua (which is better for tanking then this sword ) , or the 1h weapon dropping on Cynro event .
Just having another 1h dropping one zone further is just plain stupid .

No actually this is better then any other sk/pal 1hander before it just because of dmg/dly, but thx for asking(not)

lets see its better dam/deley then mace so it dont heal ya for 180hp woopee still has nice stats and MORE hp plus guard 3 is a cool proc to have plus ya can still add another proc to it its not CRAP just not the best ... you dont need to have the very best equipment just good equipment sence i have seen god gear'd peeps die fighting peeps that are bairly elementaly flag'd
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 22 2004 at 1:02 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ok what is with rangers always ******** about weapons like these when they get such kick *** abilities like AM3 and EQ yea i know they are just your ranger aa abilities but WTF guys pal and sk are crap damage regardless of what there doing (dont say anything about pally slay undead im not stupid like these guys are) Ok PAL and SK dont DUAL WIELD that is why they do this and every post i see some stupid ranger or warrior ******** about weapons like this DONT BE SO STUPID. We know that poor rangers always get the raw deal on all the weapons and armor /scarcasim off. Yea im flaming a bit here on this one because it just gets old of every class ******** about stupid stuff like this i say Gratz to the pally or sk who gets this or a weapon like hopebringer. Those weapons are made for these classes just like your bows are made for the stupid rangers. God forbid that some class different that the one you play gets any good gear at all. Oh if your wondering i play a beastlord and i can see why these weapons go to the right classes

EQ/AM3 isn't all that. Not any more. With the GoD AAs ranger melee can now very solidly outparse bow. Get some good weapons+procs, precision of the pathfinder, WA5, and go beat something up.

Course if rangers could use stuff like this the rogues would probly get really mad =P
Very cool

Wish I could go to that zone. That is the best Pal/Sk weapon I have ever seen. Throw on your favorite shield that you never get to use... man i'm still drooling. Big congrats to the people that have recieved this precious Betty.

#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 21 2004 at 8:56 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Why would they make such an UBER sword and then limit it to P & SK?
# Jun 21 2004 at 10:47 PM Rating: Excellent
The reasoning for weps like this is because SKs and Pallys dont DW, so they get unique items with better ratios to help keep their dps compareable. Also pallys are suposed to be defencive classes and one great defence is a shield so they are not "the kings of 2hs"
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 14 2004 at 8:02 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) yes they are :) trust me been a paladin for almost 3 years now and noone has been able to outdamage me xcept super twinks, some sks and other paladins. even if they are still using the same wep. but IMO, there are enough speed classes and the big hitters are more needed no matter what the damage:/
# Aug 02 2004 at 10:06 AM Rating: Decent
Some of you folks may want to take a second look at any decent high end Paladin... Any Paladin worth his mettle uses his 1h and shield pretty much all the time in High End GoD Zones ....period. Unless its a Mob where we can go 2h for DPS without the chance of becoming emergency Tank :)

Reason being .... these mob hit like trucks and are ALL hasted.. some page even and these are just trash mobs. Named target are untankable by Pallys even the best geared ones will get owned( I max near 12k hps and Ac near 2500 and still am nowhere close to tanking named) by mobs that flurry and can hit for over 3500+ .

Oh and BTW whoever posted that this Sword is crap.. go bang your head on your keybord. Its got better DPS than Hopebringer, better AC, Hps and stats plus Guard III is as good a proc as a 150 Hp heal that is useless in endgame. Toss on a proc Aug and your GTG any and ALL highend Pallies will upgrade to this over Hopebringer if not they should reroll as a gnome Warrior .lol :)

not to nitpick but guard IV is guard 4 dude not guard 3
# Jun 22 2004 at 3:00 AM Rating: Default
Pychognome here is correct --

Pallies//SK's DONT dual wield, they can only use one weapon at a time, so the game developers compensate for that by giving crazy ratios on their weapons that are 1hs.

as for non bashing pallies, they get 2h bash after a while, theres no need to switch out.
# Jun 21 2004 at 11:49 PM Rating: Default
If Pallys are "defensive" and "one great defense is their shields" how come I almost never see them use their shields in game? They are allways toe to toe with the mob trying for the big hits with the 2hs weapons. When it comes time to stun a mob do they dig around in their leatherfoot haversack and put on a shield and equip a 1hs/1hb weapon like my warrior main does? Heck no! They keep wailing away with that big 2 hander and use spells to stun.
Not that this applies to all pallys in all situations across all servers, but it certainly is what I observe much of the time.

I don't suffer from "Pally Envy". If I did I'd have deleted one of my 3 warriors long ago to create one. :)

Stun, Stun, Stun. SoE gives pallies stun, and they go ape s*^t with it.. They get agro, and no one taught them the finer point of 'turning off attack for a few rounds'.. they keep swinging and cleric or healer burns up mana on them, vs the warrior MT. Unfortunately only 1 out of the past /ponder 15 paladins at least, that ive played near, know what to do with their spells and equipment. Someone got it in their head that they are 'the' tank. Now, if I was in a situation where me(65 sk) or pally tank, i would send the pally in.. just dont tell him the mob DT... ok /wink /snicker

#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 26 2004 at 3:55 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Paladins are THE best tanks up untill you NEED a warrior for the tank like in the GoD zones where mobs that take 1 group to kill double or triple 1400+ although it is POSSIBLE for a paladin to tank it its just more efficient for a warrior to tank in those places due to their higher innate mitigation and avoidance plus thier defensive discs. Untill then a paladin has the best aggro management with their AA Stun (Divine Stun) and their casting stuns since they are immediate aggo, no waiting for the warrior's BoC, Bloodfrenzy, or whatever to proc. Divine stun has a cast time of .1 if that. i've seen a paladin using the 75/65 2hs and only divine stun to keep aggo and he held aggro off the rest of the melees in the raid which was about 25 or 30 of them including our main warrior who has bloodfrenzy and BoC always in his hands, 2 or 3 more warriors with BoCs in their main hand with various weapons in their offhand, rogues with high dmg BS piercers, and a few monks who had the best pre ele weapons. Not to mention 2 wizards blasting away for 3k a pop and 6k crits. No warrior can keep aggro like that untill they start getting the worn echo of anger, Darkblade of the Warlord, Shield of Strife or the other FB shield from GoD and the increased proc rate AAs.

not true, I am a 65 warrior with anathema (mini BoW) with an anger 2 aug (cuz i'm cheap), and i have absolutely no problem with agro.

Incite gives you enough agro to deal with the initial tash/malo on the pull, and then dps will give you agro over the slow by the time it lands, if you dont get a proc before it(which is rare for a WA5 warrior with max dex).

Pallies are indeed the agro kings, but if you're saying that makes you a better tank than a warrior up until GoD, you are dead wrong. Warriors with halfway decent gear can easily hold agro in normal groups, and if you're saying pallies are better in raid situations i should slap you upside yo' head right now. Also, the innate mitigation and the higher DPS of most warriors will allow your cleric to spend less mana on a per mob basis since the mob's dps will be more consistant than on a mob where stuns actually land.

So no warrior can keep agro "like a pally" until they get worn EoA, DBotW, a high FB shield, and the increased proc rate aa's? I assume you're meaning the pally was the MA on that raid...if so, then guess what, the BoC/BF warrior wasnt using incite/disarm/taunt/beg. If the warrior was your MA, were his weapons auged? I must assume the warrior in this case was the MA, because any smart warrior would be using a 2hs or higher dps 1hers for the times when he would be DPSing at this point in the game.

Waiting for warriors weapons to proc? That just doesnt happen for the times when people would be drawing agro. Does the chanter/shammy wait for a proc before tash/malo/slow? None i know do. With a warrior that has agro probs, they still have to cast and pray.

But yeah, pallies are not "THE best tanks up untill you NEED a warrior for the tank...". They are simply the kings of agro, but when you tank, you're there for efficient heals and increased mitigation, end of story. Who has more hp/ac? Who has higher innate mitigation? Who has better dps? Sit down, pally. You are the king of agro, but not THE BEST TANK!

what im sure the poster above is trying to say is, in exp groups the pallys sit there soaking mana because they dont play the class right.(only a guess what he means) now i am in no way an expert on playing a pally, just cant seem to play them right, but i do play SKs and fairly good at it so i know a good 1 hander is hard to come by prePoP/GoD so i believe this sword is the better of the 1 handers. to prove my point check this magelo (yes its fake) it shows that SKs get a higher AC rating with a shield/this weapon then most warriors can dream of without a shield.
# Jun 22 2004 at 5:02 AM Rating: Decent
You see pallys using 2h(s/b/p) because most of them can't acquire such UBER 1h(s/b/p) weps like this. Very rarely would you see a pally sacrifice dps for a little extra AC by using a sucky 1h(s/b/p) wep and a shield as opposed to a 2 hander alone....especially once they get 2hand bash. Unfortunately i never see myself getting such a sweet weapon 1 hander as this, so i'll be using my 2 handed poker for a while :)
