Velium Weapons
# Dec 28 2003 at 1:41 PM Rating: Decent
I have a lvl 18 Druid wood elf and a lvl 7 Shadowknight de. My druid weilds the Velium Morning star and gives me the message your will is not strong enough. My shadowknight just received as a gift the velium short sword, NOT the Coldian, and it proc'd on me last night. May have been a fluke, but happened never the less. Hope that helps.

Are you sure its not the velium short BLADE?

The short blade is a named weapon, not an ordinary velium weapon.

And yes, to the best of my knowledge, the velium short blade procs at lvl 1.

Also drops from Ry'Gorr orcs in hut next to Dragon Bridge in Eastern Wastes. But not very often...they usually drop daggers *shrug* I guess 1 out of 20 kills had a scimitar instead of a dagger.

Not very rare

There is nothing very rare about this item, you just walk around GD until you see a Frost Giant or Tizmak with a scimitar, kill him, and loot it. Or check the merchants in thurgadin, someone will always have one, since frost giants and tizmak die all the time. Velium shards is a 12 dd spell, and the damage/delay on this is not great, but if you are a poor druid, g'head and grab one. If you are a newb, get one of the Coldain Velium Scimitars in thurgadin, at the weapons merchant, they proc at level 1. It'll cost ya about 100pp, so kill lots of spiders, then sell the silk to high level tailors for 1 or 2 pp each in the bazaar.
Looks Great

I just picked up one of these (Velium Scimitar) in North Freeport for about 60pp. It doesn't proc yet, but I'm only a level 10 Druid. It has the same stats as my last weapon (either a Scimitar or Fine Steel Scimitar, I forget which) so I am happy with it nonetheless. I'll probably keep it 'til level 20-25 when it's supposed to start working.

It looks incredibly cool, one side is sort of grey-see through. Does it always look like this?

All in all I like this weapon so far.

Unless the Velium Scimitar was given to you free or you got a very good price on it, you'd probably be better off saving up 100pp or so to buy the Coldain Velium Scimitar in Thurgadin. It has a higher damage ratio and you don't have to wait to get the 12HP velium proc since it fires off at level one. By the time the standard velium weapons proc, you'll probably have something better. With the opening of the Nexus, you should be able to get to Thurgadin to buy it off the vendor if you have SOW, invisibilty, or are extremely careful. Once you buy it, stick everything in the bank in Thurgadin, and do the "poor man's gate" back to your bind point (unless of course you actually can gate). Then when you're done with it, sell it to a druid for a small markup at 120pp or so and you're set.
just got one

I was fighting a frost giant and seen him walking with this weapon. He coned yellow to me at lvl 36. We took him down fairly easily, and he proced on me quite a few times. Never more than 12 dmg at a time I don't believe. I have no use for this weapon since I yeild a wurmy so I guess it will make a newby smile in Nek.

It says this item is found on creatures...

Does anybody know which ones?

Tizmaks in the Great Divide drop Velium weapons...If you see one holding a weapon of whatever graphic(scimitar, mace, staff) they will be a coordinating weapon of velium temper...

My lvl 18 Ranger uses this but it has yet to proc. I just get the message "your will is not strong enough". I think I will try to tweek my Dex and Wis and see if that does anything, as some below refer.
This rocks

I bought this for 35pp on Ayonae Ro and it rocks so much I think I will use it some more. It is magical and good and fun and great.

Also, the proc happens randomly and fires velium shards at your foe for 12 damage
# Jun 21 2001 at 7:07 AM Rating: Decent
I got given this as a 9th level Druid in Misty Thicket and it procced straight away.
Maybe it has something to do with your Wisdom aswell?
What Proc Req
# Jun 04 2001 at 10:13 AM Rating: Default
It procs at lvl 25 and is also based on your dexterity, as to how often it does proc.

# May 24 2001 at 9:44 AM Rating: Default
It procs by itself, I am 34 druid and you dont have to do anything. I have the Velium Scimitar - it is not Coldain and it does 12dmg at lvl 34, but I dont know if it procs earlier than that.
Lucky and dual weilding
# Apr 01 2001 at 2:06 AM Rating: Default
Looking at the prices for this one and the long sword, it would appear that I got rather lucky this evening as someone sold one of each to my just made 11th level Ranger for a total of 35pp.

I'm going to use the longsword now and both when I can dual weild at 17th - can't wait to hit level so I can have them both "proc" in battle. :)

BTW - when a weapon like this "procs" does it just do it on it's own or do I need to click something?
RE: Lucky and dual weilding
# Apr 05 2001 at 5:22 PM Rating: Default
I think it does it on it's own because right now when I go into a fight, it says "Your will is not strong enough blah blah blah"

Ulthorks in Eastern Wastes drop this and other Velious weapons. If you come accross bridge from Iceclad and head to right along shore, a bit past the little coldain outpost you will find a spot with Ulthorks (and Rhinos and Walrus too). This is also a good exp spot, and also a good spot for druids to quad kite. But you can also typically buy these cheap off others who are hunting here.

Just looted one tonight on a A Ry`Gorr Watchman on the Orc Bridge. You'll know when he has it, because he will be wielding it and it may proc on you. These guys also seem to have Velium daggers on them as well. Same proc and the Ry'Gorr clan is in Crystal Caverns in case you dont know.

I bougth this in a shop in either east or north karana, wasn't even expensive. Merchant that sold it had many different velium weapons, all rather fairly priced.
What do shards do?
# Feb 21 2001 at 8:01 PM Rating: Decent
Does anyone know exactly what Velium Shards to to your target? I'm still a ways from 25, so I won't find out for some time.
RE: What do shards do?
# Mar 04 2001 at 12:09 AM Rating: Good
I was told it does round 12 damage.
Answer is 25
# Jan 06 2001 at 1:10 AM Rating: Excellent
I just got my lvl, and I can say now that 25 is the required level to proc with this weapon. It has a nice effect and does 12 dmg.
RE: Answer is 25
# Jan 19 2001 at 10:44 AM Rating: Default
Thank you for this infomation. I hope it is correct. I will ding 25 in 3 lvls, so I guess I will find out then. I was given this weapon by a lvl 7 troll warrior. Guess he did not know what he had.

Proc lvl
# Jan 03 2001 at 11:42 AM Rating: Decent
I'm a bit dubious about the two of you saying
that you proc with your V.S at lvls under 10,
whereas the most of us can't get it to proc
at 20+ lvls (i'm a 24 druid, can't proc yet).

If anyone knows for sure when proc is available
that would be cool
RE: Proc lvl
# Mar 06 2002 at 1:02 PM Rating: Decent
regular velium scimitar proc's at lvl 25,wis and dex have nothing to do with it proc'ing before 25,it just wont happen
RE: Proc lvl
# Apr 21 2001 at 2:13 PM Rating: Default
Sorry dude, it will not proc for a lvl 15 ranger, probably just someone in your group like a wizard or something hit the monster and you thought it proced. That would explain it not proccing for you anymore.
RE: Proc lvl
# Mar 04 2001 at 7:57 PM Rating: Good
i am a lv 15 ranger and when i needed it t proc (about a bub of health and 3 baddies on me and my group) it proced. it only happened twice so far and most of the time it says "your will is not strong <great> enough to weild this power" all in all a great newbie wepon i got it at lv 14 for 30 pp. hope this helps (and yes it IS true so dont tell me it did not happen).

It procs at lvl 25 unless you bought a Coldian Velium weapon. They proc at lvl 1 with the same stats.

Coldain will proc at lvl 1 I believe, and you guys are getting them mixed up.

Level 22 druid here, doesn't proc. Proc means when the effect happens.
RE: What Proc Req
# Dec 12 2000 at 5:29 PM Rating: Good

I purchased it at level 22 and it was procing from the start. I would assume 20 (which seems to be when a lot of things start), but I don't know for sure.

Mine is on a 21st HalfElf Druid, and it does not proc yet. I get the level message (you do not have the will...)
RE: What Proc Req

My lvl 6 druid has one and hasn't gotten it to proc yet... I'll keep it and find out when it does though and post up when I know.
RE: What Proc Req
# Dec 18 2000 at 12:30 PM Rating: Decent
I am level 20 and it says "you do not have the will to wield this weapon" So's I guess not at level 20? Or perhaps a Level 20 druid cannont proc it yet.. I was assuming level 25 ;p
RE: What Proc Req
# Dec 18 2000 at 5:11 AM Rating: Default
I get it at lvl 4 and it procs for me...though VERY rarely...can't tell the dmg though...
RE: What Proc Req
# Feb 24 2001 at 3:30 AM Rating: Decent
Ok, lots of people seem to make this mistake.
Coldain Velium weapons will start procing at lvl 1 NOT normal Velium weapons, if it is Velium and procs at under lvl 20 then it is Coldain Velium NOT normal Velium.

I have a lvl 20 SK with some Velium stuff that still won't proc so it procs at higher than lvl 20.
