it has to do with the 2.5 augmentation I guess if you wanna call it 2.5 anyways hope that helpsand one more thing whoever stated that if you have an SKS should just delete it because this is a depressing weapon are you stupid even if it is outdated right clicks go a long ways you must be in amateur. And on top of that any sk that is spent the time in developing a character just like any other charactergoing to end up with excellent results and to be honest with you anybody that knows how to play in SK hands down out tank out tuant and I'm a damn near out DPS most of the DPS SK's or not something to be taken lightly because if they've got AAA and good gear and it's out there just like this for every other class they are unstoppableI have a hard time seeing me picking any other tank besides.and not to mention their multi facets capable of doing more than one thing like staring at 1 they're phenomenal a crowd control you name it if you know how to play one you wouldnt be be your mouth. but that's okay be bias because I'll be the first one to laugh the day your land there and one saves you lol

Got 2.0 tonight!

Got this beautiful 2.0 tonight on my 81 sk. A friend named Healer soloed anguish so I could get ord (My sticking point) and basically one shot the last boss. Man it feels good to finally have the 2.0. In all it took me 16 hours to go from no epic to 1.5 to 2.0 spread over a week. Honestly tailoring was my biggest time sink. Good luck out there to all my fellow Sk's and yes the weapon is still very much worth it! Swarm's away!!!

Looks like a bug in Lucy, as only the 2.0s are showing the Infusible tag, but no purity rating, and 13th-floor also not showing the tag.

Ryoshia is correct, this weapon is not infusible. Maybe it has something to do with the epic augmentation you can add after doing the quest that follow's the 2.0.

yes actually i solo in AG frequently, it's not very hard, not as hard as sylissar/ zhista wich i can also solo in ( backwater goo's may be the only exception ). i'm not disagreeing with you about ac but some of you guys just take the whole ac is god and no amount of hps or anything else is worth giving up "some" ac for, thus padded ac magelo's. i personally think middle of the road is better then all ac or all hps, depending on what you killing. kiting or no damage off tanking sure, the eye is great for, sadly running in circles like a pansy has become one of the few role's sk have on raids now.

oh, you do now, do you?

Can you even zone in to those zones? Sounds like you are talking out of your rear. I agree with Okami. Higher ac tanks can out tank higher hp tanks. There is no substitute for taking less damage. Sorry to hear that knights on your server are unable to tank anything. It is good to know that knowledgeable and geared knights are tanking well on the others.

ya ya, I did it to show someone something, and because I have that setup a lot when kiting 20+ red mobs in some events. And am too lazy to change it back. I'll do that later.
Still doesn't change the facts.

the 300 ac in augs will make a better tank than those with 2k hp in augs.

And sadly, some really do put hp augs in their weapons and shields.

I'm perfectly happy knowing that 21k tanks with 3k ac die to mobs that I can solo toe to toe with 18khp and 4k ac. And when they die to the big mobs on raids, it's us that can snap agro and hold it, and actually live long enough for the healers to switch over. Yes, putting on the eye for 100 more ac is well worth the 400 hp I lose when I swap out the sword.
And still a thousand times better than tanking with a 2h.

Where is your magelo?
What do you tank?
Can you solo in Ashengate while lfg?

did the math the clicky heals you for 80% of melee for tanking with it...warriors have now started shield tanking cuz they've seen that us sk's were taking less dmg with 1hs and shield combo... shield obviously adds more hp/ac so why wouldn't you want to tank as such. if you are so intent on tanking with your 2.0 I put the Ground Murkglider's Eyes aug out of mpg in mine and it brought the ac up to 100 which is damn good for a 2hs. As for the katana it is not by any means a better weapon...the dmg is less...the stats are less..and least of all it doesn't look nearly as cool. Furthermore I play my shadowknight because I've found it to be the best class in the game...we can use any type of weapon well, we can cast, we can take and give beatings, we can heal ourselves and have a way out if the situation gets too hairy, we can steal stats and out agro nearly any other class. Stop griping and just be proud of the class you picked and if you are to the point where you can get your 2.0 pat yourself on the back cuz most people that start sk's never finish...not the easiest class to play.

any sk that insists on tanking with a 2h needs to be smacked and reroll as a pally.
Regardless of how the increase may appear, it will never be as beneficial as shield ac.

Ok... since you want to default it for the truth..
let me elaborate on the reasons.

Shield ac breaks the softcap.
So even if the 2h brings you up 100 ac, a shield and sword combo that only brings you up 60 more, is still doing better for your tanking. Shield ac is roughly 3x the normal ac because of the softcap.
And, it has to be flagged as a shield to work that way. Aged Left Eye of Xalgoz doesn't count as a shield. (but is great for main-hand non dmg tanking)

And I joke when I say "reroll as a pally" (but 2h tanking sk's should be smacked becuase it gives other sk's bad tanking reps) , because Pallies are generally the last to grasp the concept, and tank with a 2h becuase they think the visual numbers are actually mattering.

This is an old chart, but still holds true. It shows pallies as being the last to grasp the whole concept of how good ac is for tanking.

yes it is

But you should know that already.

Carrying it around on a hand truck gets tiresome. The only way to relieve it is to share it with others.

Most pallies make good targets.
Although I didn't say "all"

I might have some wording wrong.

Alright... why are we comparing epics when it comes down to this Warriors have a 1hs for a reason. They tank raid mobs most of the time SKs don't. If you want to throw a debate don't use the epic 2.0 why not used the Morguecaller from Warden. If anything that seems to be more of the tank weapon. 2.0 is nice DPS no doubt and compare our 2.0 to warriors 2h weapons. We get a huge advantage on them 2hs wise. Epic effect is very nice. If SKs who tank who use this weapon don't have a better 1hs and shield.... then oh well. I just got sick of comparing a 2hs weapon with a 1hs. If you have this weapon you probably have a Morguecaller and maybe Shield of the Lightning Lord. As my SK does. I don't have 2.0 yet but the 1.5 I use for the click effect almost like a defensive. My 2.0 I might use when not tanking whole reason for Bandolier option. You can just click to go from tank set up to DPS set up. Now Anyone else wanna compare a 1hs epic weapon to a 2HS epic weapon again? Or will you all drop the case?

"its not easy but well worth it". Plase, this quest is CAKE! i did the eniter 1.5 in 3 nights. thats from square 1. 0 tailoring skil, no 1.0. I did prequest, got tailoring to 100, all the drops, and all the kills in 3 nights. I admit i got VERY VERY VERY lucky with the breeder. went to RCOD killed PH 1 time, and he spawned, called in the troops (4 people, shamy, chanter, wizzy, cleric) burned that biznitch down and the rest is history. I would say total time spent was around 15 hours from start to finish of needing a GLOBE for lhranc kill in RCOD, so were talking 2.0 as well. ALL of which except the final kill in WW (one grouped) and the breeder, was soloed or duoed with a shammy. 1 night i did prequest, was allready late so i called it a night afte i did the turn ins. 1 night i did the farming for the sheeth (hate was kind of a pain as all the adds are more than annoying) and skill upped tailoring to 100. The hides from PoN were kinda crappy too, 4 spawn on the platform past the hobgoblin camp. but they arent normal respawns, kinda sucked because i didnt get a hide from the first 4 that were up, had to wait 2 hours for respawn, then one dropped. PoG drop was more than easy, took about 20 min.

on a side note tailoring is cake! go to PoK buy mandrake root(every item listed is vendor except high quality cat pelts) combine 2 at a time in a sowing kit to lvl 66. they combine to make woven mandrake. Then go get smithing up to 37 doing combine of waterflask, file, and small brick of ore (all sold in pok for nearly nothing) that yields steel boning. combine, in a sowing kit, woven mandrake, which you made earlier, and steel boning to make picnic baskets to lvl 75. then go buy quiver patterns (sold in pok for nearly nothing) and go buy or farm some high quality cat pelts, very common in east karana or usually a bunch in bazarre for 20 plat each (pretty inexpensive). combine those 2 items in a sowing kit to make tailorred quivers that will get you well over 100 (115 tivial). all in all costs you about 1k if you buy pelts, if not probably like 300(possibly not even that).

1 more night for me to complete 1.5 from making the sheet, killing wailing siste, killing 4 sk's, killing the 6 pallies, and getting holy symbol and doing all the turn ins in between. this was a pretty long day, about 7 hours total because the sk's are so far spaced out and i was out of gate potoins and low on cash(friends lowbie toons are plat sponges) with gate potions you could easily do all this in 4 hours or so. However, NOTE^ the pallies in kithicore can NO LONGER BE PET PULLED! with a recent patch that was nerfed so either bring a group or be a well geared sk (im not amazing but 12k unbuffed isnt shabby) This part was tougher than expected when i found out i couldnt pet pull them. Had to tank them all at once. they dont hit that hard but lots of hits coming in at once and quick. disc out at the beginning and be sure to use decrepit skin, lots of fast hits means it will go off non stop and mitigate a LOT Of damage. 2.0 parts were easy, i even had to get howling stones key (which was a time drainer but simple, both the mob in keasora and lake of ill omen were already up when i got to them) lhrancs ring was very very simple, pendant was a little more of a bish, as i could only get 2 reavers to spawn at a time (not like the 72 in a row that i have heard horror stories about when people were very less geared) 2 hour respawn time on these made the camp kinda long, got it on 3 spawn on black reaver that spawns ghiosk. Bracer was kinda a biznitch but nothing like the horror stories on theboards of 40+ hours. took about 3 hours, be sure to take a haste potion or 10 if your going to go solo it, they drop a lot faster, easy to get them going in a cycle and not have a lot of down time. SO, on out next anguish run i am more than certain i will have myself a shinny globe and then ill be off to pop lhranc in RCOD and will be the proud new owner and 1 of maybe 20 other sk's on my server with the 2.0. hope this was informative. quest is NOT hard by no means, if your an average player i would rally suggest getting the 1.5. you can do it all easy with a single group except maybe the breeder, that that guild give you a hand. you'll have a nice weapon and it looks amazing btw.

Just wanted to add to lukistke post the Pallies part may no longer be pet pulled but can easily be solo'd with a little bit of tactics.

Spawn the pallies as they approach the ring they will start buffing and stand guard... position yourself out at max range (they will all con indiffent) cast darkness on the Frog pally (it will stick, never tried the others) then run in a straight path away... dont have any damage shields up because if they land a blow will take awhile to lose agro...

Once you make some distance FD and con them to make sure you are indifferent still... run back as fast as possible to pull frog away from the pathing of returning pallies 69SK bazaar gear and DoN cultural armor with potions did this easily, rinse and repeat you may even get a couple who did not make it back to camp and can pick them up before they despawn... if you dont get your 3 bloods the trigger spawn will repop roughly 20mins and attempt again.

Actually heres another strat that was cake that worked for me and my friends..

You can't just pull 1, or just FD pull it...And you can't or shouldn't try to snare either because they do summon. So i'd advise making a junk pet,get max range,send pet in,run back a little bit and wait for one to fall back,then feign..usually 1 pally drops back to cast each time

I seen an SK Iksar with this and he put 2 life tap augs for 125. Well lets put it this way I never healed once and he cut threw mobs like butter. I was so awwwwed I went out and made me an SK cuzz this was so awesome. I hope one day to own this. Currently my SK is only 62 with 49AAs. I use a blade of disurtion / mace of dark glory / and edge of emvoplement. I think I'll start my epic soon as I get her to 65. I know alot people say do it at 50 but I want to get some AAs in and take it slowly so I don't mess it up. Thank you Sony!!!

# Nov 01 2006 at 12:33 PM Rating: Decent
My advice is such, do the prequest, the 1.0 is not worth it, only serves as a title and respect points and imo a waist of time. Then pound out the breeder untill you get it, its without a doubt the hardest part of the quest. GL to ya, its not easy but the reward is worth it.

Am I correct in assuming that this effect is a leachcurse effect for every group member?

So a rogue banging away at somewhere near 1k dps (say an augmented 2.0 rogue with Yarusha's Fury in offhand, non-disc'd) has the effect of a 6000 per tick heal over time? That seems like one hell of a group heal over time. Even if your melee dps is only 300, thats still a 1800 per tick heal over time. Seems like a fantastic group heal over time effect for a melee group. Not to mention the fact that it stacks with all other HoT's.

One other question, I noticed that the Accuracy effect is 40% for the group and 70% due to the recourse effect. Does the recourse affect the ShadowKnight only? Meaning +40% accuracy for the SK's group and +70% accuracy for the SK?

Thanks in advance.

It is indeed a leechcurse-esque effect. One difference though is it's not for full (from what I've seen.)

You actually tap about 45% or so if you melee hit. 600 hit nets you in the 200s or a little less iirc. It's still a fabulous effect though.

I just got this two days ago and let me tell you, You talk about one awsome weapon I get complements from all sort of people all the time, the animated graphic is wicked and the dang weapon's design screams SK, We started at the spawn point at filingo the slayer, a raid of 19 people mostly anguish and lower suited characters, I hailed did my turn in and said ready at which time 1 minnion of lhranc spawned dark blue con to me spawned we beat him down with the quickness and 1 more then one more after the third on died the real lhranc spawned we beat him down like donkey kong I looted the essense of shadowknight and turned it in boom I am the new proud owner of Innoruuk's Dark Blessing the whole fight took maybe 5 minutes and to all the whiners, Dont be a hater because the SK epic looks so awsome this thing hits constant 600's and up and crits for 1000 and up not to mention it increases our lifetap which is what makes us so better than the pallys and and wariors any ways, If you ask me sony finaly did something right for once I wouldnt want any other weap besides this, I am in a top level guild we do anguish, all the don dragons and if you think 50 ac makes that big of a differance when you are geting hit for 2500 your wrong it dont mater if you have 16k or 15.5 you drop the same,quit complaining on what the other classes have and dont have and be proud of you are a sk's that what we are if you dont like it delete your character and start a new one. I have sent a picture of itit looks like the 1.5 and has a black mist over the blade and yellow or gold light coming from just above the handle.

# Apr 30 2005 at 11:11 PM Rating: Default
Only problem I have with this epic is that they got the dmg/delay on ours swapped with the pally one... our dmg & delay should both be higher than the pally weapon.

Well ok and the clicky from the shd epic should go back to being some kinda group effect too.

RE: epic not quite as good as pally but hey still good
# Nov 01 2005 at 1:54 AM Rating: Decent
ok im gonna say what countless others have said in the past... SK's are based on DPS.... they have a natural tendoncey (Spelling) to do more damage what with spell's, pet (Now a viable source of DPS with the new uped pet), and the Disc's. Pallies get the better/Higher dmg weapons to counter this feat. If you can't handle the fact you do more damage without the higher dmg weapon.... then i'd say you don't deserve to be a SK and should Reroll your character and stop pestering people with needless ranting like i'm forced to do :p

Sheesh, comparison of the two weapons (SK and Pal Epic 2.0) shows the dmg capability to be practically the same. See below:

Innoruuk's Dark Blessing
Damage: 94 Delay: 37
Ratio: 0.393 Godly
Damage Bonus: 47 (lvl 70)
Comparative Efficiency: 317

Nightbane, Sword of the Valiant
Damage: 102 Delay: 40
Ratio: 0.392 Godly
Damage Bonus: 50 (lvl 70)
Comparative Efficiency: 317

Personally, I'll take the lower delay on mah SK Epic.

The real reason soe has for putting in such "insane" ratios, is that they need something for their high end players to upgrade to. Steadly as you progress more and more the gear becomes SLIGHTLY better each encounter, and eventually you get to this. Believe me though..high end encounters are no joke. The pople that work hard enough to get these kind of items deserve them. Complaining about how powerful an item is compared to items of 2 years ago is the LAST thing we should be doing on this fourm.

# Oct 07 2005 at 4:24 PM Rating: Default
before oow best 2hand item was Staff of Shattered Dreams which was a 57 28 with 280 hp/mana they almost doubble hp/mana/stats with 2.0 as well as giving it 6 more on damage bonus. also the dmg delay ratio goes from .393 on 2.0 to .491

9 delay more for 37 more damage. id take that any time. this item is more than slightly better for high end players. at this rate we will have weapons that are 300/42 with 1200hp/mana and 100 to all stats and resists with in a year.

This is one great 2hs weapon SOE did it right the Epic should the weapon we all strive for. This weapon I bet looks sweet, good luck to all you SK's out there that get this weapon use it proudly, because I would.

I sat here and actually read EVERY damn post on here and quite honestly, being and endgame bard and recently retired from EQ (not to mention being a beta tester for this danm game) I'm extremely disappointed in all of you people who ******* about this weapon. If ANY of you remember the original 3 continents, the few planes that were around and the ****** gear we had to deal with back in the day, this is a a masterpiece for the Shadowknight! That said, let's move on...

I read all of your complaints and all the statistics you put up, trying to argue that this weapon wasn't as good as a warrior epic 2.0 (which let me tell you something now, YOU'RE NOT A F****** WARRIOR SO STOP WORRYING ABOUT BEING ONE!!) and I've come to the conclusion that ya'll care too much about this game. You do know it's a game right? This weapon wasn't made with "SK tanking" in mind. It was made with "let's make a kickass weapon for a SK to do a lot of dmg and boast about him doing the quest while having it look really f'in cool at the same time", cause let's face it, this game is all about looking cool imo. All you endgamers need to stop looking at this game from an endgame perspective and start thinking about the non-statistical, other part of the game that's JUST as fun as raiding 24 / 7. Let's not forget where this game came from. These stats are really goddamn nuts compared to many other things I've seen through the years, and 94/37 is an INSANE dmg/dly output. It's almost TOO insane as you all have pointed out that the SK, IN RAIDS, will most likely take some aggro. If you're an endgame SK , though, you should have gear to be able to sustain hits from mobs like that. If you don't, something needs to change soon =P

I think you people need to re-evaluate your priorities in this game in some ways. This is a kickass weapon that I, as a previous bard, would want to have the ability to use 2h weapons for, and everyone who argued that the warrior epic 2.0 was better... well, let me reiterate something to you. Warriors = MTs. Shadowknights = Support / melee dmg. EVERY bit of dmg is AS IMPORTANT as the next, whether you're a bard (who does next to no dmg in melee combat =P ) to wizards, who do a **** ton. I've seen a friggin druid melee a raid mob to death to keep the raid from failing. How much dmg do you think she did melee'ing? Not much I can tell you that lol! May we not forget the fact that warriors 3-4 years into the games career had severely dropped in usefullness, as many SK's and Pally's stepped above their ability to tank and took over their main purpose. It aws a sad time for warriors, and now SOE gave them back their main purpose of the game... To tank... Let them have that job back. I'd much rather see a bigass barbarian warrior tanking than a scrawny Darkelf SK tanking anyday, if only for the illusion that he's bigger and stronger =D Good luck guys in your travels, and sorry this was so long. (I love being retired cause now I can stop caring lol)

The effect on both this and 1.5 is a lifetap for 500 (and in this case 750) then you get a bard song that is increased accuracy and a lifetap based on the melee damage you do. I have 1.5 and it's 55% of my melee damage heals me (faily sure that 55% is accurate, but I'm in the middle of battle trying to calculate it when I use it too).
