The other night on Povar (Morden Rasp) there was a Gm zerker event. They wanted you to make a lvl 1 zerker and get summoned to arena. Having just started playing n this server (mains are on Stromm) I was in the tutorial at the time. well figure this coud be fun. Made a lvl 1 ogre zerker, entered the free for all in arena. The Gm's gave these out to us. And we got to keep them afterwards!!! I thought WOW! this is awesome! I just came to this server and started a pally and a SK, and I already have a decent 2hs for them to practice with!. Needless to say, my pally and Sk are two very happy gnome ladies!!! I just thought it was cool that the GMs would GIVE these to us, itwas awesome!
Sorry to waste your time. Now back to the usefull info.

my good huge axe
# Mar 18 2002 at 5:43 PM Rating: Decent
A cute dark elf gave me this axe. This is my favorite. I prefer using it over using 2 weapons with my dual weilding. Why? Cause its huge, impressive and give great look to my Ogre. With this axe I use my luberjack's cap, it is so funny! You can think my Ogre is searching for a big tree to cut.
My advice is keep it until you find better (and have money to buy better). I hit over 30dmg with this axe and now I've double attack. Critical hits at 62dmg makes my team mates happy!
I BUY IT !!!

I'm desperately looking for a weapon. Let me know where to meet to buy this. Thanks.
just sayin something
# Jan 31 2002 at 10:56 PM Rating: Default
i started using this over 2 giant miltia longswords ... I wasnt sure if i could double attack while duel wielding, but i guess so ... at 18 this hits for 30 and i crit for 57

some guy showed me a whole bag full of great high level weapons and said i could pick one and i picked axe of the iron back. does this have a damge cap and also is it the fastest 2hs weapon for sk's because im tranfering this along with a gnoll hide lariat and a BABS to my main lv19 iksar sk in swamp of no hope and i really need to get my 2hs skill up because my 1hs is 100 and my 2hs is about 14 i think. would it be safe for a lv6 dwarf running from friona ve to swamp of no hope with these weapons on him with sow and invis. because i want to do this myself, ill get a bind at friona

I just got this off an aviak egret in SK. First time I've even seen any weapon better than bronze on an aviak.
RE: New Drop Location
# Nov 29 2001 at 1:42 AM Rating: Decent
More than likely, someone gave the axe to the Aviak, so a random person could get it and wonder how it got there. I do that all the time with Ruined Bear Pelts in EC, I give them to Orc Pawns and wait for some newbie to shout "Why are Orcs dropping bear skins?" Hahaha

even better than that, if I get over weight from carrying like 600 copper or so, i will give it to something low level just to lose the weight
# Oct 10 2001 at 12:11 PM Rating: Default
as far as i know, the damage cap doesn't cap the amount of damage you do to the monster, it caps the damage on the weapon itself, keeping it at 14.

if you're going to twink out a toon with a new weapon, make sure the damage isn't over 14, or you'll be wasting that extra damage. a weighted battle axe (45/150) would be 14/150, making it quite possibly the worst weapon in the game. keep it at 14 until after 20, or close to it. i put this on a friend's shadowknight, and it's working rather well. after 20, he will be dropping it for a better weapon, obviously.

i THINK that's how damage cap works, don't get all pissy if that's not right, like most of you have a habit of doing.

#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 30 2001 at 5:08 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This terrible thing happened to me with this Axe. I was starting a new char, since i was tired of my bard and so I made a Dwarf Paladin. I gave away everything I had (on my lvl 12 char) for one of these and dropped it in a weird area and when I come over... it is gone. :( So I was wondering if any of you really nice peeps out there would give me one of these because I am really sad. My char name is Aule, I will probably be in the Frontier Mountains begging unless I am on my way there.
should i or shouldent i?
# Aug 30 2001 at 1:50 AM Rating: Decent
i was wondering should i use this or use a coldian velium long sword + PGT (at lvl 15) or this please tell me (i will use a CDS until lvl 15)
20+ dont bother
# Aug 22 2001 at 2:16 PM Rating: Decent
This is a good weapon for up to level 20, but after that it is not worth it. Get a Runic Carver (2 more damage) Blade of Xalgos (Better dps) or a Drakkel Forged ******* Sword (also better dps). Basically,you want a weapon with better damage (no damage cap after level 20) or better delay (to interrupt casters).
# Aug 15 2001 at 6:22 AM Rating: Default
this axe is good for newbie to 20. If you are nearing 20 and want one not worth the trouble. save up for 20+ dmg weapon like DF bast sword.

G'day all,

A kind guy on Karana just gave me one of them (I'm 5th level at that time) while all I asked for was a rusty weapon to be able to get my body rotting near an orc village in Greater Feydark. I insisted on giving it back to him when I meet him again, but the guy would ignore me... So I guess I'll have to keep it and practice that 2HS skill ;)
I'm not used to seeing a frail wood elven ranger waving such a huge weapon yet, but I'm sure I soon will.

If you allow me to give my newbie's two cents, here it is: never ever beg, higher level players hate that and you might also end up beeing killed by merchants doing so; always be polite and kindly ask them for whatever you need, you'll certainly be surprised to see how many will actually help you ! Many thanks to Dinaden, Aldebarann and Anoroth on Karana. They rule :)
RE: Some people rock

I agree. There is a BIG difference between begging and simply asking for assistance.
# Jul 25 2001 at 12:13 PM Rating: Decent
Ok, my 2copper... his is a great axe for most classes to use below 20. It has a decent Damage and fast enough delay to make it worthwhile. Problem comes when the damage cap lifts at 20 and you can get more mileage out of other types of 2hs.

Sides, now that EVERYONE has one, I prefer my drakkel forged ******* Sword.

# Jul 19 2001 at 10:55 AM Rating: Decent
I would have sworn the delay on this was 50! Am i seeing things or is the delay realy 50 because if the delay were the 37 i would still be using it. just my 2cp

Just a quick question, I picked up a blackened iron ******* sword 2HS, 2.35 ratio so a bit worse than this axe. Its average price is 135pp and is not a lightsource. Why is the BIBS worth more than this weapon, is it because this axe puts so much strain on the stamina of the user?
