I got one of these things and it keeps telling me my will is not enough to wield this weapon. My question is what is proc? LOL And will it be worth it to train on 1HB since I am already a 17 and have no skill at 1HB. Was hoping I could dual weild this and the screaming mace. Any suggestions?
This thing is cool

I have a lvl 22 halfling Druid on Vesshan, had this since lvl 11 and it hasnt proc once keep getting message. The other night i was in CB fooling around when i saw a lvl 10 wood elf ranger useign it and it was procing like crazy. Maybe it race dependant or something i have no clue i just know i have a higher dex and lvl and it still wont proc for me.

Velium weapons proc at 25. COLDAIN velium weapons, purchased in Thurgadin proc for level 1. The difference is that this level 10 probably had the Coldain version.

Why would a weapon that procs at 25 be only 23pp? If this is not the avg price then what is....I want one. :)

It's cheap because a 12pt direct damage proc isn't a spectacular weapon for a level 25. It is as good on stats as a regular morningstar, and magic, which is nice from single digits through low teens. By the time it procs, you should have better, even if you're not twinked. I used mine from level 8 throught 15. Now use a Sarnak enforcer, which is 1 less damage, but 10 less delay. Cost me more than double though, and unfortunately just looks like a club. The velium morningstar looks really cool, like a hazy glass that you can sort of see through. Well worth 20plat or so, until you can afford better. Especially when you're being attacked by some wimpy elemental near the tunnel, and can't hit it back because you have a regular non-magic weapon. Happened to me. Had to run to tunnel. With this weapon I defeated the next one easily. Also was able to kill MANY willowwisps around level 10.

According to posts under the velium longsword, there are two types of velium weapons. "supposedly" I don't have proof, ones purchased from vendors in Thurgadin will have a damage rating 1 point higher, and will proc for anyone. I have no proof of this, and cannot verify the validity of it, as i don't have any of the expansions. If you have a character with one, and it procs below 25, check the damage rating. If it is nine, then there are two types, if not, I have no explanation.

I have a DE Cleric on Ralos (my first character)and he got it from a higher level friend when he was 4th level... ever since i've had it on Ralos/DE cleric it proc's

my main character is a Dwarf Cleric on Valon who had got one at around level 8 and is 24 now and it still won't proc... hoping it does at 25

the DE would deffinitely have a higher dex....I was all happy when my main got it then I kept getting the message...
who cares about the spell

I bought this weapon at 12 for one reason. To hit ghouls and willowisps. I really don't care about the spell.

This mace procs at level 25, got it at level 23 and tried it at every level. Always got message that said "Your will is not sufficient to command this weapon". At Lvl 25 it worked for me.
But, at lvl 25 I had a much better weapon to use and I sold this one for almost nothing.

# Apr 25 2001 at 11:46 AM Rating: Default
I have a Velium Morningstar and have been able to procs at lvl 12. I have an Elf/Ranger and he has no problem using it. I have been told it's DEX that is associated with it. Mine is at 82 with boost.
RE: Garunteed lvl to proc
# May 09 2001 at 10:56 PM Rating: Default
I'm afraid i don't believe you. This weapon does not proc till 25, period. If it did for you it was a fluke/game error, because i've now looked over every velium weapon post here on alhakazam and your the ONLY person to make the claim you just did.

As for the dex theory, my hael rang. dex is 90 w/o boost and is boosted right now to over 100, and the weapon still doesn't proc for me at level 16, even though i get the 'your will yada yada' messege all the time with both this (which i use to practice 1hbl) and my velium longsword.

For anyone who hasn't seen one of these in game... they look SWEET. They're like a bluish glass, and at the right angles you actually see through them, esp. the two handed sword (saw it twice, not spending 100pp for one though)

Personal opinion... Verant needs to drop the proc level to around 20 or so to make this weapon a little more appealing. 15 would be better. It's just too outclassed only procing at 20, as was wisely said before here, use this stuff as cheap willowwisp and ghoul beaters.

I've been told no velium weapons proc will actually work until level 25, being as I'm only at 12 it'll take a while for me to see if thats true. Mine does try, though rarely.

# Feb 01 2001 at 2:45 PM Rating: Decent
I'm level 24 now, and it doesn't proc for me. I *hope* it'll proc at 25. I've been told the variant weapon, the Coldaine <sp?> Velium Morningstar, procs at 13, however.

Do you have to have the Expansion Velious installed for this weapon to proc?

good question...all of you people who it DOES proc for, do you have veius? I am an 11 cleric on innoruk and have been using it since 4, and my will is STILL inefficient to use it...
RE: proc
# Jan 29 2001 at 12:23 AM Rating: Default
I wonder if those it did not proc for, do indeed have the velious patch, as you will note, velious is required for this weapon.
RE: proc
# Feb 05 2001 at 4:06 PM Rating: Decent
I have a lvl 13 warrior and also have the velious patch enabled but am not able to get the weapon to proc. It has tried many times but no luck just yet.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 31 2001 at 3:09 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) if you say that it procs at 2 or whenever your an idiot mine hasnt proced at 23 with my halfy druid, and i made a DE cleric just to test got it to 3 and let it use my morning star and no proc so 1 of two things happened your a liar or you are just plain dumb and cant understand the your will isnt high enough messange and interpret it as a proc
RE: proc
# Apr 25 2001 at 11:53 AM Rating: Default
I don't mis interpret the fact that I see a text message stating that I've done 12 melee damage with Velium shards to something as my will is insufficient. I use to have that problem with the screaming mace. I got this Morningstar and started procs at 12. It does work and maybe you do have to have some other patches installed to use it. It is a random item however and is based on your DEX.

Don't be so concerned with damage only. It is the damage/delay ratio that is important. I upgraded from this weapon to a Sarnak enforcer (dmg7 dly28). Yes went from 8 damage to 7 and is an upgrade. that's because the Sarnak will hit four times in the same time it takes the Velium Morningstar to hit 3 times. 38 delay=3.8seconds 28delay=2.8seconds. 3.8*3=11.4seconds, 2.8*4=11.2 seconds. When you consider that a 7 damage rated weapon does 14 damage max without strength bonus, and an 8 does 16 max. (at least at my level) four hits with the 7 is 56 points max damage, three hits with the 8 is 48pts damage. A noticable difference. Of course, when your hits come up in the text box, 16 points of damage looks more impressive, but you are doing less damage. The weapon is rated average ratio, and is good for lower levels. You should have better by 17th level though! Ignore the proc. if you are high enough to use it, the weapon should be junk to you. This is a weapon for starters up to about level 12-15, or as soon as you can afford better. Of course, if you're a cleric, you shouldn't be hitting too much anyway, so invest in defense first, but then upgrade it.

I also bought this item from a vendor next to the bank in Freeport, along with a Crystalised Shadow scimitar for the same price. As a warrior who has just reached lvl 15 and recently learned duel weild and double attack, to see the screen light up with four(4) hits in a row in the mid 20's, this is like mana from heaven!

It does not proc at 24th for my Cleric... My guess would be 25th, 26th or 27th if it procs for your Shaman at 27th.

I was given one 2 nights ago as a newbie gift and I'm very pleased with it. I have a low lvl HIE cleric who doesn't now any melee power at all, makes low lvls very frustrating at times. She is able to now hit for 16-17dmg on regular basis using this-it doesn't sound all that great but considering the fact she was hitting for 3-6dmg points, I'm really pleased with it. I have been told that it processes at a fairly low lvl compared to other weapons and as my cleric has only made lvl 9 it will be interesting to see when it finally does process.
RE: Proc lvl
# Feb 06 2001 at 10:49 PM Rating: Decent
Im at 11th now, have had it since about 5th (a gift from a complete stranger, thank you!), Still not proc yet.

Given the rest of the posts here, I asume that it will proc around 25th - 26th. Probably go to a different weapon by then, but not sure.

I don't know when it starts, but it does proc at lvl 40 and the proc is a 12pt DD. The one I got dropped off a Frost Giant in Iceclad.
