You poor fool.
Misguided no doubt.
My ranger starts with 90Str, but self buffed and with all my gear on i reach 172 Str. By the way my stats are 172str 101sta 105agi 103dex 75wis 75int 51cha.
Yes i realise i have almost as much cha as you, but then i'm stronger... so there :)

Oh yes, this is my main, a level 38 ranger, and completely untwinked... the only thing uber i have is a Thick Banded Belt (8ac 15str) which i bought for a steal at 2.5kpp.

I'm a ranger, i'm only level 17, untwinked, and I have 114 strength thanks very much, so what you're saying is a misconception at best, or outright ignorance at worst.

ok, thanks, I still have a question tho... u say it will give 30 AC if i have that 25 AC shield... but is paying 3-4k for wurmy, plus that 2k for that clay guardian shield really worth that 30AC? I only have so much money and dont really feel that this is worth what it costs... I DO need to buy other stuff ya know =)... like that DW Helm that every other pally(darn twinks) my level have.... Or you know something along those lines... I was thinking of purchasing a Two Handed Mithril Sword (dmg21 dly40 perm32%haste 2HS) for a much cheaper price... and then when I get old enough to camp FBSS, get that and then buy a Arbitor's Combine Greatsword... that would save me many bucks... so again... i ask is it really worth it for a pally?

thanks tho!

I can't tell you how to get a 25 AC shield for cheap but i'll tell you what i'm doing with my SK. I'm going to buy the wurmy then run my little dark buns over to highpass hold and camp vexven mucktail... when it pops i'm gunna slaughter that ******* (camped it for 4 hours already) and loot me a Cracked Darkwood Shield (12 AC +9 str). And that's that.

Im a lvl 30 Paly and use a Shiny Brass Shield! Why? Cause Vexven Mucktail! When I finally found out about the CDS I was already lvl 20ish so I didnt want to go fight a low lvl Mob with a higher toon and be "that guy". So when my wizard finally hit 14 i camped him. 2 kills (one of him, one of me) and no shield. so off i went to adventure.

Enter my lvl 14 warrior. much bigger and dualweilding so i go to HH and camp this jerk again. 3 kills (all him) and three tomahawks. grrr. Again boredom sets inn so off i go.

Now im fed up. My palys going back and this time its personal! So i will be "that guy" that takes an uber (well uber for gnolls) in to beat Vex's Mucktail in and get my damn shield. (Price is ridiculous for something i can get with some time invested)

okie dokey, i have a couple questions. I am a level (just dinged) 33 dwarf paladin. I own a BABS (and a Ghoulbane, but im talking about BABS)... BABS is only worth like 500pp on Drinal. Wurmy is 3-4k. BABS is 2HS, dmg 24 dly 38 2wt.
Wurmy is 1HS, dmg 25 dly 40, which is kind of a worse ratio... ALTHOUGH it IS 1HS not 2HS. Plus it has the str and AC.... But then I think again and say, well wurmys weigh FIFTEEN stones!!! BABS is only 2! And since im a pally, I cant dual weild... so is it worth buying a wurmy for a pally? If so, plz post a good explanation of why I should get it cause I'm really in doubt even with all my fellow pallys holding their wurmys... but if not, plz if u can tell me a good UPGRADE for a PALADIN that I should get... I was told a Mithril 2-Hander, but any other ideas? thanks!

Well, but the Mithril 2hander ( if you apply the haste factor ) becomes 21-29/30 . Much better weapon IMHO , pallies get a lot of high AC bonus stuff , plus own ac spells.. and since you can heal pretty nicely : via root , heal , back to the fry . I would try to save some cash to get some fine armor and buy the Minth 2hander . You already got a Wurmy ? Awesome , grats : get a nice shield .
IMO , rangers and warrriors get much faster weapons to dual weild . This weapon wont help a lot to taunt the mob off the yelling caster :)

Oh , yes . I know what a Wurmy is worth to : You want to be an 00BER twink like those you always have seen around, you want to look S00000 C0000L ! , etc , anc crap lika that ... well , get one - OMG i slayed a DW Caiman being level 8! SO WHAT ? hehe . * Grin * but you will be forgeting how dmg cap works at low levels - .

Areeeeeew!
RE: Paladin
# Oct 12 2001 at 9:20 PM Rating: Decent
I would go with the Wurmy because it is 1 more dmg for 2 delay, but it also allows you to use bash then, a shield gives stats ands since u have bash does damage so i would fork up the extra dough and get a wurmslayer and a shield, just me though.

Ok bring the post to paladin forum.

If you want damage...go with mithril 2hander.
If you want more protection...use wurmy with shield.

This is the quick and dirty. Bring post to pally forum and let the answers roll.

Hi Fellow Paladin

The reason we are using Wurmslayer is that you can Equip a shield.
So One hand slash is allways better then 2hand slash becouse AC rules..
Whit wurmy that is +5 and a shield lets say + 25 Ac it is 30 more Ac then you have whit a 2 Hs.
And they higher you get the more importent is the AC..So I allways use my Wurmy before a 2 Hs..
Have fun and see you out there.

Duel Wield
# Sep 17 2001 at 3:11 PM Rating: Good
I am a newb to the duel wield classes as i have played druid/pally for my eq career. I have a question about duel wield. When u wield 2 weps do u want to have the bigger damage or faster wep on ur main hand or what? If any one can help please respond.
(P.S. i posted here cause of all the intelligent wars who come here and could prob help me)
RE: Duel Wield

You want to have the fastest delay weapon in your 2nd meele slot. Your strongest weapon, with the slower delay should be in your main hand. That way your are guarenteed to hit with your main and offhand alot more often.

I have this and a ghoulbane on my pally. This is much better than the ghoulbane except when you fight undead mobs due to the proc. With this I hit for high 50's with ghoulbane mid 30's.

Well how the Hell about this, one night you can put yr wurmy in your range slot, the next night you cant, thanks the **** a lot Verant.

Anyone else getting sick and tired of their short sight over there in san diego???

Id rather they over estamate and make things less powerfull and then nerf em up, than strip you of yr stategy.

Im not like most I only get to really play my main, I dont have ten alts that I play often, so gear strategy is very important to me, next thin you know, I waste all the G-D time to get the champion BP and then, OOPs sory we made that too uber, were lowerin all the stats by 5 and striping some!!!

I used to say F jackie, F verant and sony they can blow me!!!

# Aug 30 2001 at 9:01 PM Rating: Default
I got a chuckle reading all the posts by the "real warriors" who think they know all there is to know but don't even touch on the PvP benefits of this weapon.

Especially Riceplz.

"But Riceplz, isn't it nice to pick up AC and MR on a weapon for pvp purposes?"

Riceplz says "umm, what's pvp?"

*Riceplz frantically searches his dictionary and comes up empty*

"But Riceplz, in PvP other PCs don't just stand and let you beat on them, they move around thus making high damage weapons more effective than low damage weapons as you want to be able to deliver the most damage in 1 second as you can."

Riceplz says "Duh MR PvP, that's what taunt is for. If you keep the Mob taunted he will stay in front of you"

Well, you asked to be flamed. Next time you post like you are an expert on something why don't you try and be a little more comprehensive.
Who Should Use a Wurm
# Aug 30 2001 at 2:26 AM Rating: Excellent
New to the tanking business and I've been reading up on the Wurm/Yak (damage/delay) debate and I wanted to see if this was a good summary
Useful class/levels for Wurm
Warrior : 20 - 35 or 40ish
Pally/Ranger : 20 - 50(?)
Shadowknight : never (get a MoSS)

Looking for some advice before I drop 2.5-3k on a Wurm for my low 20s war and/or rng, should I get it or find a fast weapon in the same price range to go with the Yak club.
RE: Who Should Use a Wurm
# Sep 04 2001 at 9:51 AM Rating: Good
I like your analysis..I agree w/ you 99%. I know the MOSS is great for SK...but a wurmy is not bad either. Wurmy will prolly deal more damage from lvl 20-45 or so...then the MOSS will take over. You should definetly get this weapon...but make sure your stamina is above 100 or you will be in a world of hurt when your stam goes nil.
RE: Who Should Use a Wurm
# Sep 08 2001 at 8:44 PM Rating: Decent
I have a Wurmy on my 35 SK and have been using one for about 5 levels. (Was a gift) I am at 171 in 1hs and hit for an average of 60-70. My Sta isn't that great, but that is what casters are for! Hit me with a Sta boost! :) I hit harder with this weapon than with a 2hs it seems. /shrug (skill is at 175 using a Mithril 2hdr)

I am trying to find the stats on this MoSS and have only heard it refered to as the abreviation. WHAT the heck does it stand for??? and how much are they?
RE: Who Should Use a Wurm

mace of the shadowed soul... i've looked at both and i'd preffer a wurmy... i'm an SK too... I thinkt he dmg output is just way too nice.. and hasted it's mmm mmm good.
RE: Who Should Use a Wurm

I have to say that the Wurmy is the most overrated weapon in the game. Not bad, but overrated. At level 40 I was thwacking away with my MoSS for 60-70 a pop, and I could fight in a chain pulling group and never run low on stamina. Not to mention the additional INT that a MoSS grants.

Of course, a Wurmy grants AC, and has that super sexy graphic. The ratio is a little better than a MoSS (19/29 versus 25/40), but the damage bonus makes the MoSS a better net damage output weapon.

Lastly, the delay makes it hard to maintain taunt. Given that at 35 I was outtaunting a 38 warr with a wurmy, this may or may not be a problem. If you need to maintain hate, skip the wurmy.

Last factor, the Wurmy is staying high in price. I've seen MoSSes advertised for as low a 1.5K. Wurmys are holding steady at 3K. I'd invest the extra 1.5K in a clay guardian shield.

I am not sure how anyone else has done on this but I completed this one in about 4-6 hours total play time at Lvl45. BW takes a good group and Someone who either knowes the areas that the named wurms pop in or a tracker. We got some kewl loot just hanging out waiting on em. From there u will need someone with enough faction to enter OT to trade Tekite for the peice to take to Sol Ro. By far the longest part was waiting on the Fuzzmin dude, be prepared, this dude loves to run and fight to. The best time to catch him is when he's buffing up. You will want to have a pinkie that you can trust do this part. Good luck. As for the delay and weight part, don't know and don't care. There is always bigger and better. I like to try it on myself. All said this was the first quest I actually liked doing just because of the extra loot available nearby.
anyone wonder?
# Aug 22 2001 at 5:58 PM Rating: Default
why this says it can be put in the melee slot yet the screenshot says it cannot? well actually the WS is a ranged weapon...not offical...but it does have a range reach of 20....i first noticed it while fighting HG's in rathe mountains...i was puller and i turned and walked backwards to watch my pull to avoid the annoying druids who like to KS ya...he was still a good ways back....had auto attack going... he was maybe (20 video game feet from me) and i hit him with the WS...and he could reach to hit me back....so there ya have it... it does have a nice reach on it.... but doesnt go in the actual ranged slot.

Don't Hate Me?
# Aug 20 2001 at 3:05 AM Rating: Default
I am an Iksar SK looking for quests to do, this, naturaly, seems like a good one to start working on. Bieng an iksar, I am hesitant to try venturing away from Cabillis due to the whole "hated race" issue. I was just wondering if any of the higher level iksars out there have completed any of the "NON-Cabillis" quests? And if so, how is it trying to talk to non-iksar NPC's without gettin chopped up into little pieces? I've completed about half of the iksar SK Dreadscale quests, and I really want to see more of what EQ has out there, I dig my iksar, he kiks azz and i love the regen and night vision, and don't want to trash him because I can't leave KUNARK....

There are a couple of quests that I have done outside of Cabilis, although most of them require invisibility. The easiest quest to get banking privaliges I have found thus far is the red wine quest in Neriak.

http://eqdb.allakhazam.com/quest.html?quest=159

Also, I haven't tested it yet, but I have been told by reliable sources that everyone is non-KoS in the Temple of Sol Ro, except to one or two NPC in there. Once I get tired of killing treants in SK, I'm going to go check it out and I'll let you know.

Good for Hybrids.
# Aug 12 2001 at 11:50 PM Rating: Decent
Paladins & Small-race Shadowknights can keep their shields and bash for interrupts while wielding this... plus it's got that 40 delay which means it gets the special damage bonus that VI coded in for the slower 2h weapons.

Rangers can use this to still do good damage, but avoid over-aggroing with hyper-rapid attacks.
RE: Good for Hybrids.
# Aug 29 2001 at 5:50 AM Rating: Decent
Actually that statement is somewhat true "that 40 delay which means ... special damage bonus that VI coded in for the slower 2h weapons." unfortunatly this is a 1hs and doesn't receive this bonus. Still, considering how much more damage scales up as you level I can imagine that this thing would just get better for any class who can use it and all you lightweight races out there work on stamina gear already if not for this then for long fights...
RE: Good for Hybrids.
# Aug 22 2001 at 9:46 AM Rating: Decent
Just to add to this statement...the 40 delay also allow any hybrids to cast spells within the time-frame w/o sacrificing a "miss round" of hits from the wurmy. So for every 4 second of attacks, you may see a double attack, a bash, and a nice stun, dot, or whateva spell that has a casting time of 4sec or under.

I'm a ranger and I got this bad boy..hehe I do great damage w/ duel weilding. And like I say, hybrids can cast spells in between..BOOM Ignite for 37dd...Just wait until I get my Call of Sky Spell, a self weapon proc spell..38dd and stun I think =P, this will totally own anything infront of me.
Delay
# Aug 09 2001 at 3:49 PM Rating: Excellent
What I don't get, and maybe I'm missing something here, is that people are saying 40 is slow... okay... maybe it's not 22... but if you think about most 2hs weapons of the same damage, the delay is about the same... 'cept this is 1hs, not 2hs, so now you not only have a double attack with the wurmie but another attack from a secondary weapon, assuming the character can dual wield, or even bash if not able to dual wield
Screw up delay
# Aug 03 2001 at 2:08 PM Rating: Default
The delay on this thing sucks, but if you like the damage thats what counts because the Wurmslayer definatly has damage!
