If you don't mind the Stamina.....

Alright, as a warrior, the Tick Tank, as I've dubbed my self (being a Dwarf).
I duel wield, WurmSlayer, and Silken Whip of Ensnaring with fbss to boot.
now, i dunno about you..... With good haste
Wurm Slayer can be brought down to a 25 20 weapon or less, and the whip to 14 14 weapon.....
about 75% the time i outdamaged all my group memembers :)
Doubles for 50 average, and with whip 40's
sometimes doubled for 100's
with haste it didn't matter, even with out haste, i kep up with the warrior dueling a pair of jade maces and fbss.

Its just my 2 Cp,
it'd be nice to have the jade mace and lammy to play with,
but wurmslayer and this whip are my main damage dealers till epics touch these hands:)

Wurmslayer is HIGHLY underrated. I believe your combo is quite uber, in fact i tried for the longest time on my 43 warrior to get a silken whip... i had fbss and WS and j-trident, but no whip. I think you should just keep those til you get more haste, or get a great deal on lammy/css or some ****** BTW dorfs fuggin rocks

41 Ranger and just quested one of these, i must say its nice, with my str at 166 im able to hit over 100 with it. Using SSOY in offhand and Call of Sky i can taunt pretty well when needed. Stamina is a factor, but I have invigor so no worries. So far im pleased with this weapon and recommend it to anyone that wants one. For those who dont want it, dont get it. Just my 2cps. Latuh

lv 22 ogre warrior with 215 str, I use a Wurmslayer/shimmering partisan combo. With the wurmslayer I can hit for 69-75, with the shimmering partisan it is usually 59-63. I also have a FBSS equipped, and I can solo the guards in ecommons with little trouble.

ok here we go again skyfire is better than a wurmmy.....i think not wow 10 22.....comapred to 25/ skyfire procs a rain spell which if u havent notice not only nukes the mob but YOURSELF!! heh i love when ppl say stupid coments peace
here is why low delay is considered "better"
# Jun 08 2001 at 1:47 PM Rating: Default
You always miss on swings in fights, it is inevitable. When you miss with a WS you lose 40delay, which can amount to quite a bit against big mobs. With the faster weapons with worse dmg/delay, you have many more chances to hit... so here is how it is.

Faster=consistant damage
Power =potential to do massive damage, but
generally doesn't do much more

Wurmslayer fuggin rocks, but faster is always seen as better, that is why people prefer sword of skyfire til it procs (at 47), but Wurmslayer is my fave 1hs... i ne'er woulda given it up

Better than Skyfire?
# May 15 2001 at 12:49 AM Rating: Good
Is the Wurmslayer better than a Sword of Skyfire?I think not. Sword of Skyfire is 10/22 and Procs Rain of Fire, doesn't aaadd STR but adds HP, ColdSV and CHA(Cause you know we melee types be lovin the honeys!) but leaving the proc out of the picture, it still does more DPM than wurmslayer, no matter what haste items or STR you have, and it won't drain your stamina. And of course, as a Ranger i can't have a 15 stone wep if I don't need it! I tried many lvls, and configurations, but Skyfire ALWAYS came out on top (In Copeland's). At lvl 50 with a cloak of flames, the Wurmslayer ALMOST equaled the Skyfire, but not quite ;-)

Whatever!!!!! this person obviously doesn't understand the fact that when you do lower damage the person/mob that you are hitting can resist it with his/her AC, ie why a lvl 15 pally with a wurmslayer can way out damage a lvl 22 pally with a frozen lonsword(7dmg 26dly). with wurmslayer: I usually hit for between 26-38 on average and then add in dbl hit and on average i'm doing 52-76 points of dmg per hit. yea this means that my little lvl 25 pally can take on SG's (i am a little twinked i mean really i have had a wurmslayer since lvl 10) and with alittle luck i don't have to use LOH :).. never realised how good the xp is for soloing an SG

25th season Pally
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 04 2001 at 5:37 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) are you a moron a lvl 25 will never take on a sg alone... alone means no buffs on you unless they are your own. and someone useing a wurmslayer would not be able to... just to tell you a wurmslayer i do not considered twinked it is an ok weapon but not great you morons that say you can solo sand giants at lvl 25 have something wrong with you. learn how to not lie and play the game...
Wurmslayer sucks for n00bs
# Jun 08 2001 at 1:49 PM Rating: Default
You ever heard of a damage cap? i have.
Wurmslayer is only good after level 20... but 30 is perfered cuz there is a damage cap lifted there too. I would suggest a Sword of Skyfire first, then trade it straight up for a WS when you hit 20 or 30
#Anonymous, Posted: May 14 2001 at 11:35 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) First up i would like to say that this wepoan owns for all the classes that can use it.....if u think it sucks i feel bad for you because you dont know hat your missing. So its a lil slow who cares because once u hit 40 and go over to lower the mobs drop fbss which moves up the speed so know the wepaon is like 25 32 and if u think that is bad i think u shouldnt play eq latz....
My opinion
# May 12 2001 at 9:54 AM Rating: Default
Okay, from a SK's standpoint, this is a good weapon, not great. Why isn't it great? The weight and the fact that a MoSS can easily outdamage it.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 08 2001 at 1:51 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Mace of the Shadowed Soul kinda costs about 1.5kpp more than a Wumrslayer (at least on Fenin Ro) and some people kinda dont have the cash to spend on that. Besides, MoSS is SK only, good luck selling it. Wurmslayer has better damage delay than MoSS i believe, and hasted it is best one hander in game (my opinion).
# May 11 2001 at 6:31 PM Rating: Default
Wurmslayers are one of the most overrated weapons in game for a warrior. The slow delay causes you to get taunted less and blood point/lammy +CSS own this damage wise even if you have one of the above mentioned wpns in offhand. This weapon is meant for a pally or an SK to have 2hand style damage but still use a shield. the occasional ranger may also favor a wurmy for low taunt factor and decent damage. In my opinion if your gonna save up the 8-9k (on VZ) then just save up a few more plat and get a CSS or Lammy. Warriors rule

RE: overated
# May 13 2001 at 2:19 PM Rating: Default
Yes, the only problem with your statement is the fact that a Wurmslayer goes for 4k, and Lamentation goes for like 15k, Bloodpoint like 20k.

Just a few k difference, right??

what kind of weapon is a wurmslayer? i had a person in my guild say it was a glaive, but another said that glaives are two-handed. It looks like a broad-headed spear, but it slashes not pierces. It has the graphic when you inspect someone of a halberd. Do you think its a halberd? I know some will have answers, i hope its not that this is just some made up weaopon that is not modeled after anything in real life.

Wurmy is prolly one of the better weapons ive used on my 35 warrior. My dmg has maxed out at 115 or so w/o a crit a ive critted for almost 200dmg and landed crippleing blows for close to 300dmg (considering also i do have a 191 str). So in my opinion wurmy is a damn fine weapon for any melee class to have.

I am glad it cant be equipped in range... you know why? At least you want accidently auto inventory this thing and throw a 4k weapon. As for secondary 30 weight for someone who doesnt have a high stregth is not very good.

I'm a lvl 30 war currently using dual crystallized swords. I want one of these really bad. Only problem people have with em is the 15.0 wt, STA goes down fast. Only thing that could cure that is an Indicolite or better bp with Invigorate effect, but by the time you get one of those you should be wielding dual lammies or something.

Hey can a lvl 60 cleric and a lvl 56 druid do the quest without dieing?
Also can the Warrior use 2 wurmslayers if they have duel weild?
RE: Wurmslayer
# May 01 2001 at 9:58 AM Rating: Default
Probably not, on of the Wurm's placeholders is a nasty monkey named Gullerback. Almost completely magic resistant. You will want to bring a tank for this bad boy (unless Azdlin or whatever his name is already up).

I don't know I kept up to a monk damage wise with one of these and a pretty good not great off-hand weapon...(had time to sit and add up damage between fights since we were short a cleric)..not saying I outdamaged the monk mind you which was a few lvls higher btw and had trance sticks and an FBSS which I was lacking but came out pretty even...all in all I'd say I was pretty pleased though taunting isn't as great with a slower Wurm but WTH mages can stand a blow or to now and then =)

he said that he was using a Wurm and another weapon in his off hand(thats why he said good-but-not-great)
# Apr 21 2001 at 3:29 PM Rating: Default
Well, i know all of you guys saying that Wurmslayer is no good but i was using a two hand slashing 25 dmg 50 dly Executioner's Axe for a while and it really pleased me. Then a lot of my friends told me that duel wield is better for warriors than two hand slashing. So I saved up and bought the Wurmslayer and it was 25 dmg 40 dly PLUS other stats! my old two hand slashing Macho axe was the same damage and higher delay than my new one hand slasher! So I am going to use this untill at least forty.
This is better than I thought for DPM

I was checking some weapons on that analyzer and this weapons is really not bad, at least not for a class like an sk.

The DPM (damage per minute) was as follows:

One hand slash Sk

Dragonclaw Shard - 583
Sword of the Shissar - 548
Noctivagent Blade - 513
Sword of Pain - 484
Sword of the Gathering - 482
Bloodmoon - 480
Wurmslayer - 471

Those are just the top ones. So for sk at least wurmslayer is pretty dang good until you get some pretty high end 1 h slashes. Of course the 2 hand slash for sks beats out the DPM on most of these. Some guy in my guild threw my twink sk and Argent defender, since he'd never use.

Argent Defender - 554

As you can see its DPM even beats out a noc blade. There is no way anyone would just throw me a noc blad, in fact its what I see most high level sks with. The funny thing is TONS of weapons have higher DPM than a noc blade which are 2 hand slash. I guess most of them are from the planes though or new areas in velious.

My sk is a troll too so it can still bash with a 2 hand. Glad I analyzed this stuff cause it showed me my Mace of shadowed souls, drakkel icegrinder and argent defender are pretty darn good. I just really need to pick up an ok one hand cheap and Wurmslayer is the best canidate for that (these DPM's may be due to the trolls 193 str .. I was jumping around in the analyzer and am not aware if at this comparison point if that was still taken into account.)
RE: This is better than I thought for DPM
# May 27 2001 at 8:46 PM Rating: Default
The Argent Defender is probably a much better choice for SK's or Paladins, unless you have a REALLY good shield you want to use. These two hybrids are much better served using a 2HS weapon in general, due to not being able to dual wield. For Paladins or even SKs, go for an Arbitor's Combine Greatsword... slightly better delay than the Argent, even if it has a stupid graphic, and much better bonuses. Then again, the Argent Defender sells for around 4-5k (same as Wurm), and the Arbitor's sells for about 6-7k.

That said, a Wurmslayer is still an excellent weapon to use as an SK or a Pally... if you're planning on sticking with 1HS and a shield in the long run.

Use a Wurm in your primary and a Ykesha in your secondary... this is probably about as good as it gets until you can get a lammy or a jade mace. Wurmslayer r0x hardcore... there aren't too many weapons better than this one. There's a few, but most of them are priced in the 15k-and-up range.
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 15 2001 at 11:16 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I have like 20 of these things.

lemme guess you use 2hs

Look stupid this is one handed slash that means you can carry another weapon in your left hand. If you met up with a guy with this weapon and another good weapon in the other hand im sure you would be pissin your cloth pants cause if your level 32 and you can crip 247 you are either a lier a twink or you spent all the money you have on that weap im betting on you bieing a lier.
RE: lemme guess you use 2hs
# Apr 23 2001 at 10:03 PM Rating: Default
Actually he prob has a higher dex than most every one else who uses this weapon...seeings how he is a halfling. Dex determines how often you hit your max, whereas str determines your max. As a lvl 42 ranger, when i had about 131 dex w/ a dragon Yk, and storm feather talons i was outdmging my WS and SSoM w/ same str, and 20 less dex(was trying to trade out dex for str/ac...i guess i was wrong) this got me killed. WS is decent, but the dly just sucks. At 42 it should be outdmging everything else....yet i have an 8/23 weap out dmging it when i had higher dex. Just about to switch back the that exe hood/grotesque mask combo rather than str/ac stuff
RE: lemme guess you use 2hs
# May 18 2001 at 5:00 AM Rating: Default
Actually, Dex has nothing to do with max damages or max crits/crips.
The only things that count are : damage of the weapon, stength and level.
RE: lemme guess you use 2hs
# May 27 2001 at 8:39 PM Rating: Default
.. just a side note. 'Proc' is not short for process, it's short for 'proxy', as in "something which serves the purpose of something absent"... ie, as in a weapon which cast spells. Just like the fact that 'mob' does not stand for 'monster or beast', it stands for 'MOBile unit', an old MUD term.

That aside, Dex does not affect max damage or max crits/crips.. it does however have a very large effect on how often your melee skills improve, as well as how OFTEN your special melee attacks go off, such as crits/crips, dual wield, double attack, etc etc.
RE: lemme guess you use 2hs
# May 11 2001 at 2:21 PM Rating: Good
Trick is to use this and another decent 1H Slashing weapon (SSoY being my personal fave) in combination with an FBSS and a nice Enchanter dropping Celerity on you. That's when you start seeing the majority of the battle spam being your own hits... I've got a STR of 143 and a DEX of only 90, yet with 2 Yaks I process on average twice a battle. With this and a Yak, sure I'd be losing the majority of my processes, but making up for it in overall damage.

Can't wait to get one...
