"This is dumb" "Its a game" "Get a life" I've seen it all. Don't like an item? Don't comment. Don't like a person? Ignore them. Don't like this game? Think it's dumb? Why are you here. Why are you reading this post if all your going to do is take what nice person said about weilding this weapon and turn it against them. Don't you have something better to do? Like have a life? =) This weapon looks cool. Ive got 2.0, Ive got Flayed Fleshwraps, Ive got Yar'lirs and Yarusha's but Id use this any day, it looks cool. Am I a loser for this? Naw, Im a loser for other reasons. Do I not have a life? No, I do, I even have! ^_^ Yes she's real, no she's not my right hand (I prefer left anyways if your going there anyways you probably wanted to know.) And yes I have a life...sorta. My point is this. Eq is a game people play to escape their worlds. Or perhaps for fun. Let them play in peace. Good hunting. Have fun. And please, feel free to start yelling at me, Im sure most of you have nothing better to do. Hell, thats why Im here anyways.

~Life is what you make it, live it, love it, die doing something fun.

Smiley: banghead Not as common as I'd expected it to be, hehe. So far 6 spine-tingling thrill rides of anticipation, waiting for this thing to drop. Every monk and beastlord in my guild would love to own this. But for the time being, we've all been biding our time and hoarding our dkp. This along with the equally 'common' Smiley: cry Allin's Mace would be a very formidable combo, in the hands of a monk or beastlord. I'm looking forward to seeing one or the other drop someday, and hopefully, this little monkie might be graced with the honor of weilding them.

Good luck , good hunting, and congratulations to those who already weild these!

This is a game people if you can kill the king and it drop who ever get wtg and then good luck on the next time your guild tries to take the king down. So good luck to those who can and for those who cannt keep trying one day you will be the one hold the weapon of your dreams!

yeah, that's the dumbest thing i have ever heard. to be experienced/geared enough to even get into this zone you would have probably have to go on well over 200 raids. then to kill this mob you need an awesome guild, and then once it is down you're going to have 20 some monks and beastlords bidding their raid points or however they have it set up. so your chances of getthing this item...are very very very...very could spend a month working on your epic and 5 years getting good enough to loot this item. so shut up.

thats silly.
A- gear has nothing to do with entering rss. you can enter when you are 69.
b- 200 raids are realy not necesarry.
c- 20 monks/bl in guild? ever heared of the 54 people limit in instanced zones? guilds will not have so many monks/bl to avoid drama when people need to be send away from a raid.
Sadly enough beastlords are not realy wanted in raid guilds anyway cause they dont do any dmg.

Well, the funny thing is... the monk who's wielding the staff in the picture was the only full member at raid who could use this weapon... he got it for base cost :p

While it requires "just one" raid to get this, the requirements to have a chance against King Gelaqua are quite high. If your guild isn't at least capable of doing Inktu'ta or similar, you won't be seeing this beauty I'm afraid... and it's a lot of raiding till that level...

And even though I like the monk epic, it is hardly a standard to compare items with that came out years and 7 expansions later...

looks like a practice sword for kendo

Thats exactly what it is, but it is represented differently in this game. Funny that these were developed so students of kendo would get injured less than using bokkens..

Looks like a closed umbrella hehe, but thats what a shinai looks like i suppose, would hate for my sensei to catch me offguard with that though, thought shinai's supposed to be wooden training weapons not Holy Butt kickers lol. =)

since the Time Shinai thingy is hand to hand I am guessing thats why this one is too

Yeah, but the h2h animation looks really dumb with this type of weapon. I understand why they made it h2h being a mnk/bst weapon, but it should really at least have the 1hb animation.
