Pretty rare drop from Sebilis. Need lockpick or some means to aggro Chottal through the locked door. I.E. critical lull failure for example with low Charisma stat. On p99, I believe it must be equipped to cast but on live it can be casted from inventory & made into a macro /useitem breath of harmony. Did a video guide talking about how I could stack BoH's niv's with Lute of the Flowing Waters to do a 6 song perma-twist:
Still Drops, Rarely !

Got one for my bard and it doesn't look too bad, actually. The wide part of the sword is somewhat transparant which tones down the bulkiness of it. Still a bit long than I'd like but all in all I'm very happy with this sword.

The graphic above in the description shows a big gangly wide sword. Is this really how it looks? My bard has Defender's Lightblade in the offhand and it's a really nice looking weap. Yeh yeh, function before form but I wish it would look more like the lean, low delay, weap that it is.

actually the "bulkiness" of the look makes my bard looks cool ... he's a supposedly weak melee but carries a heavy looking weap!

Thus the Uberness of us Bards!!

Well lets think Here, BoT came out with Kunark while Defenders lightblade came out with PoP, of corse most weapons from Kunark will look ugly by comparession
Primary only

I've had my BoH for about 8 months and it's Primary melee slot only. I recently sent in the screen shot and correction. I'm curious though if this was a retro-active nerf or only the newer drops are PRI only. Anyone have one that is still either melee slot?

You now need to be level 50 to use the right click effect on this item. I have had it since level 48 and can finally use it at level 50. (Yes I sent a correction in <g>).

#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 19 2002 at 12:28 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You need to have 100percent haste to even have the effect of double attack and if you can have 100percent hast than te monk you are grouped with should have haste as well.

Went into crypt the other day. Dropped this guy. No bard so open roll, and lost roll. 12k, would have helped get me a LSoEE, oh well.

Niv's Definitly has:
1. a Str Bonus
2. a Regen Component
3. a Small *Spell* Damage Absorbtion

the Atk Bonus is a Result of the Strength increase.

Any Questions? :D

RE: Effect
# Aug 11 2002 at 11:45 AM Rating: Decent
the spell does just what is says:

Party: Increase Strength (10 - 24)
Party: Increase Attack (10 - 21)
Party: Heal (10- 17)
Party: Absorb Spell Dmg (10-21)

Healing and damage absorbing are two differant things. One can look like the other but they are not the same. this spell has a 17hp regen, and also has a 21dmg absorb.

sorry you dissagree TYNDER

For all you people wondering why bards get weapons with very nice damage/delay the answer is simple:


What this means is a bard with this weapon (10/18) will do (almost) the same damage as a warior with a >> 10/36 << weapon.

And wariors get a lot better then 10/36.

Understand why? Good. Now stop nagging.

I've been outdamaged by a monk even though I had 62 perc haste (werewolf and schw) on the ancient cyclops. No way you can outdamage a monk even if you twist in your dots and dd.

I'm gonna have to Go with the Wristsnapper over this...

All bards say that the song doesn't stack with the DS songs, or the high Rune (damage obsorber) songs...the Wristsnapper is same ratio, with 5 ac, 7 agi, 7 int, 7 cha...and if you have better, can be put in ranged slot.

Just an FYI, this effect stacks with both Psalm of Veeshan as well as Warsong of Zek, with those being the 2 high level DS's it definately stacks with them. As per runes, it does not stack with shield of songs but does stack with Nillipuss's march of the wee. Also stacks with Niv's Harmonic.

# Jun 20 2002 at 9:49 PM Rating: Decent
And I would go with wristsnapper in offhand and BoH in primary for proc, but that's just my two cents :-)
RE: hit like monk
# Aug 19 2002 at 12:32 PM Rating: Default
It's triggered insta cast...which means a bard can twist 5sons if you include the boh
# May 02 2002 at 8:38 AM Rating: Excellent
Well, just my thoughts on this. I had this weapon paired with a wrist snapper, and although a pair of 10/18s were nice, I did some looking and realized there were also better for me. With the lute of the hower, and a sash of the dragon born, I found that I got better damage out of a lsoee main hand, and a guardians mace off hand. I recently hit 52, and when you add in Battle cry of Valshir, there is clearly no choice for me.

The weapon becomes clickable at 50, and the effect lasts for 3 ticks. It is also without instrament effects, so unless you have your epic, not really worth it in my opinion, and even then, I would say probably not.

When does this Weapon Become Clickable?
# Apr 23 2002 at 7:59 PM Rating: Decent
When does BoH become clickable? I'm currently level 45 and it doesn't work, I'm happy that I got the weapon for a decent price, Traded Dark Scale Greaves (Worth around 4-5k, but i couldn't sell it) and 1,900 Platinum for this weapon.
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 22 2002 at 12:46 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i have one on luclin server. i will sell it for 11k. send em a tell..after reading this, im sure it will go fast
RE: Breath of Harmony
# May 24 2002 at 5:36 AM Rating: Decent
This weapon is now only worth about 6k...
(Veeshan server)
And still very nice
I like it!
# Jan 10 2002 at 10:52 PM Rating: Excellent
Excellent weapon, 0 cast time...10/18 ratio 0.8 weight...allows us bards to actually deal some melee damage when fear kiting. Try this... charm kite 2 mobs, once one goes down (you have to do some damage to it via dot or dd etc or just hit it) fear kite the second...with weapons like this one they go down fast enough to make solo worthwhile!
