8% overhaste will only effect 27, 29, 31 delay weapons according to this. It will prolly effect delays higher than 31 but that's as far as the chart goes. So if you have this in primary and 2.0 in secondary with 8% overhaste you're not doing so bad. You warriors may wanna point that out when rogues are being defaulted overhaste.

1. The Darkblade has a better proc rate than BBOB.

2. You should know better than to be using high-aggro weapons IF YOU'RE NOT MAIN TANKING. How about switching to a high-dps, low-aggro, two-handed weapon? You'll be doing the main tank and the healers a favor.

The tank you were jacking from may not have had all the offensive AA's that increases damage, ect. Also, if you have your Combat Effects maxed and the tank did not, that could explain it.

Also, that other tank could just suxxor!

Or....welcome to the Wonderful World of EQ Agro.

Any warrior, no matter how well geared or with how many AA can lose agro in a heartbeat to someone else, even with "inferior" gear and AA. They just have to have the right set of circumstances (lucky string of crits, procs, etc, or assumed agro from a puller for any number of reasons, etc).

Any class/lvl toon can take agro from any other.
quick opinion

My opinion is, this + 2.0 is the best weapon combo, just because simply, it has the anger proc without aug, and it adds shielding.

Only problem is, if you are like me on my warrior, i have my 2.0 but im using the dagger from the queen until i can get an nbob, because the guild im in atm doesn't raid tacvi at all, so this makes it really hard for me to get, but i ever got it, i wouldn't trade it for anything other than maybe the new PoR items, but even swiftcleave doesnt compare to this, but thats just my opinion..

im hoping to get this weapon or nbob, and get the anger3 proc from ldon and put it in my 2.0's slot 4, and have one of the don ones in the type 8, and put another one of the don EB augs in the nbob or bbob, that would be a decent combo, can't wait to get it!

on bb atm though =[

My guild just broke into Tacvi last night on Maelin Starpyre sever. My warrior and almost smell this thing. If any1 out there can share some stats on how to go about this it would really help. Thank you
# May 04 2006 at 4:34 PM Rating: Default
lol warriors have 2.0 which is way better than BBoB imo.
# Feb 10 2007 at 7:12 AM Rating: Decent
Totally agree with lonagan & eclthunder , not to mention the 2.0 is from the expansion after this.

Sweet weapon, even in the PoR/TSS era.
(yes, I know the post is old, but 1 year from now when someone reads this they know the BBoB rocked it like elvis!)

Speaking as someone who has weilded this + epic for over a year, I'll go ahead and say you don't know what you're talking about. The only thing a warrior would ever trade their BBoB for is a Notched Blade of Bloodletting from AMV in CoA, or Swiftcleave, the Fleshcarver, from Hatchet the Torturer in Demiplane. And even those are hardly consensus upgrades. I know a lot of warriors, myself included, who will keep their BBoBs until there is either a completely clear generic upgrade available, or there is anoher war only msainand aggro weapon.

The warrior epics, though labelled as either primary or secondary, are primarily offhand weapons. In general usage, all warriors who have both will mainhand BBoB and offhand 2.0. In absolute terms, however, the 2.0 pulls more aggro than the BBoB in mainhand, so mosy will use the 2.0 in mainhand when using a shield. It is not very legitimate to directly compare the BBoB and 2.0 though, because they are essentially weapons for different slots.

You obviously don't know what you're talking about then because this is a primary only weapon, warriors use this in primary and 2.0 in offhand...
Thank God
# Apr 10 2006 at 11:59 AM Rating: Default
Thank God there is a decent weapon where the only folks a warrior needs to worrie about loosing a roll to is another warrior not a buncha hybreds that have access to all sorts of higher dmg to delay ratio weapons
# Mar 06 2006 at 11:40 PM Rating: Decent
lol this is the best lol i hear that BBOB and epic 2.0 is best melee combo for warrior ! =) cant wait to get for my lvl 70 warrior
Good weapon

Such a cool wep , such a crapy looks. SoE cant make anything rite first try now can they...

How does this compare to the DBoW. Does this have a proc modifier on it. I was told that the DBoW still has a better proc rate.
RE: ???
# Apr 26 2005 at 2:52 PM Rating: Decent
No proc mod on the BBoB.

However, with the ratio it's better aggro all around, and the stats and shielding make it a hands down winnar. No contest.

Now if only it didn't share a graphic with the BoTblade of n00bs. :(

/HOLY FU*K!!!!!
Gratz to all you Warriors who can use this...and get this...Even my SK is drooling over this...and the Deathblade of the Zun'Muram
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 09 2004 at 10:27 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) will the 4% shielding be enuff to offset the riposte problem?
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 28 2004 at 2:47 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) well guess i better get my christmas list started.... Its going to be a great X-mas this year!
On Hybrid w/out Dual Wield

Well not that I will EVER see this blade(MAJOR SAD DROOL) but it should be noted that at this level Hybrids are getting weapons with almost 2 to one ratio's, so if similarly equipped will still have an impresive ability to dish out damage. This zone drops a 73 37 2hs for SK's for example.

Thanks for the correction btw, I would not be suprised if similar 1h weapons dropped for Knights in the game. It would be in keeping with what has been going on all along.

2hs though np.
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 05 2004 at 1:13 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ya, dunno was kind of confused by how people had their messages worded. But this is indeed 1hand slash......scary.
# Aug 28 2004 at 12:51 AM Rating: Decent
its about damn time us warriors get something almost to par with those uber pally/SK 1 handers
RE: finally
# Sep 17 2004 at 5:34 PM Rating: Default
Aww, didn't work as much as I had hoped, only 4 flames, guess I have to work harder to get "pwned"
RE: finally
# Aug 29 2004 at 10:36 PM Rating: Default
errrm, yeah.......

some parity between classes that can only wield one weapon and warriors who dual weild...

yes, that makes sense :P
RE: finally
# Dec 17 2004 at 3:29 AM Rating: Decent
a class that needs to hold agro against new Nukes and spells that cause even more agro than what we've ever seen before.

Upgraded spells for nukers = higher agro
Upgraded heals for healers = higher agro
Upgraded weaps for 2h hybrids = higher agro

Thus, Wars need items on this class to ensure all the other classes has a better chance of staying alive (not saying they're invinc ... just that they were built to get beat on)
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 05 2004 at 1:14 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) obviously you haven't seen GBoC or HB, or hell why not the paladin only 1hb from god...or wait even JAoUR...anyways...
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 28 2004 at 4:29 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) lol almost to Par your kinda missing one importand detail YOU CAN USE 2 WEAPONS AT ONCE! Pal/Sk can NOT so you get 2 good 1hs with desent ratio and pal/sk gets one 1hs with great ratio and you still spank them in dps why couse you got 2! realy wake up and smell the data
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 28 2004 at 2:01 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Too bad you sissy warriors will still be second best behind the Mighty Shadow Knights as far as agro, tanking, tuanting, good looks, and personality go... Oh well, look at the bright side -- you're still better than Paladins. (of course, you'd have to be a slobbering motard to be worse than a Paladin)
hey now
# Aug 27 2004 at 7:10 PM Rating: Default
hehe thought it was 2hs for a sec, good tanking weapon :) warriors have an epic?
