When clicked, this item removes the AA "Item: Firefist" 0/3 from the Special tab and replaces it with the following AAs:

"Item: Aura of Rage" 2/3
"Item: Disable Item Abilities 1/1

If you make a hotkey for the latter, it reads "Disable Effects". Clicking it removes the Item: Aura of Rage 2/3 and replaces it with the Item: Firefist 0/3 again.

This is on the Yelinak server. Looks like this is different than what was on Phinigel back in 2017.

just go to top dogs and drop in the hole right before it, watch out for the dispelling trap. I think some of the dogs DO see invise

This is fun to play with while running..
Also there is a godly dmg 1h that has sweet gemed and gold hilt on second lvl of hate unless that was changed. I saw one rot by accident cause it was in a wall.

Nope, not nerfed. A friend just linked one that dropped. Still exactly the same as in the picture.

The effect is the same as the highly coveted Shrunken Goblin Skull Earring. The effect is wanted because it's an instant cast and can be used as a junk buff against dispelling mobs, not because of what the effect actually does (although an extra 10 ATK is never bad).

People have just been concentrating on PoP & the new Ykeshan zones so that they have overlooked the older zones and the decent drops. This sword isn't too bad, wish there was a better aura click to it, but it would take away that spell slot at least.

Well my 10 necro was docked in NRO so I told him to save it for me, got on my 10sk and low and behold INSTA PORT a 52 druid right on me as i zoned in. He was right there! Damn talk about destiny. :P LOl wahtever, anyway..So..I go and I get a port to GD, sow ac/hp buff and invis and run into velks, down into LD and LOOT IT AND GRIM AURA WORKS ON LVL 10 :P WOOOOOOOOOOO BABY!

Im lvl 41. I just walked into VL today. music is pretty cool lol. anyway, how do i get the camp where this sword drops. someone has already told me how to get out, camp along the wall facing the wall wake up on top of it repeat, but how do i get there? using a noct blade right now, Sord of pain sounds so nice :)
shard of night is better
# Jun 17 2002 at 5:17 PM Rating: Decent
I this is a really nice sk weapon . Instead of goin to velks I would go to chardok to obtain the shard of night. Shard of night is 21/24 plus some nice stats. Shard of night is also sellable so if you get tired of it you can always go to bazaar and sell the thing.If you are high enough level to fight velks you should be able to get a grp in chardok.

Why does everyone try to compare this to a MoSS? omfg... MoSS is 19/29 and 10int (which im using now) i just found out about this just tonight... and i was considering using a Noc blade over it... i come here and check it out - To bad i didnt know it had 10ac on it - No competition with Noc Blade anymore im gonna get 1 of these =D

MoSS = 19/29 1hb +10int, SoP = 19/25 +50mana +10ac + Grim Aura (and im lvl21 so i dont have Grim aura yet :P so ill get this sword instead... ill get the aura if it doesnt click right away)

Did you happen to nitice this sword is no drop?
Great Weap
# Apr 20 2002 at 9:09 PM Rating: Decent
I just got this tonight, was messing around in GD and a 55 rogue told me that this had dropped in Velks, went in there and eventually someone showed me the way. Was using Strength of Grodan beforehand, and will probably still use if im going solely for dmg. Otherwise, this sword is almost same ratio with the AC plus I can use a shield. All in all it rocks, plus it looks great.

From the zone of velk. how do you get to the place where this drops? Is it hard to get there? and can anything see invis on the way there? thanks

Nothing sees invis. You have to go up the ramps until there is a tunnel ahead of you that turns to the right(eyes camp). You go ot the end of the tunnel and through the fake wall. You drop down into the big hole and then drop down into the hole in the middle again. You are now in the lower dogs area. There are mobs that spawn here and a trap that dispells all buffs so need to make sure somebody has cleared this spot if going down alone.

I think I will keep my 19/24 Ebon Mace over the 19/25 sword and grim aura. The AC is nice, but hey once you hit 1200 AC there is really no point in going any that point is all about getting more HP gear, oh and I have a shrunken gobby skull earring already. All in all great weapon if you are upgrading from a MoSS.

# Apr 03 2002 at 11:29 AM Rating: Good
u have over 1200 ac and still are using an ebon mace? something is wrong there man...

Man is this sword a nice upgrade from my MoSS!! The Grim Aura effect is right clickable also! what a plus!
Just to let all of you know I am level 48 Iksar sk and have never been to Velk's Tome before...what I did is went inside stayed at zone and waited for someone to camp the LD (lower dogs) I then payed a player 500PP to get me down there to the grp and just stayed invis the whole way...(only named dogs can see thru invis) They killed it I looted it and now im 2K richer for selling my sk and have an uber sword!!! Good luck all!!

whenever i read such posts i wish they put level requirements on items (like on those armor pieces from Akheva). where's the risk vs. reward in that guy's story?

Normally I wouldn't applaud such behavior either, but since I'm probably going to do the same for my Shadowknight, I guess this is as much a justification for you as it is for me as well.

From the beginning we knew that this was a role-playing game. Shadowknights' are know for their honor in battle, but they are underhanded none the less. I figure why not be a rich Sk who gets what he wants one way or another. And if someone says 'No' (Verant in this case w/ the No Drop tag and you w/ the recommended level comment) you just have to take matters into your own hands. That and when it comes to material wealth, there are no boundries.

Atleast that's how I play my SK. A cocky, self-made millionare(well, close enough =Þ) who does what it takes. But he still has honor on the battlefield. One to be trusted as a friend, and hated as an enemy.

Hope that helped, it helped ME out a great deal, hehe.

man, how could there even be a question between this and noct blade? 10 AC alone makes it better...

Sword of pain is really burying the ebon mace on Cazic-Thule. I know we have at least 4 sks in my guild that are using Sword of Pain.
People can hardly give away ebon mace now.

I know at least three people that got a sword of pain because someone in velks shouted that it dropped in lower dogs, and it was going to rot - first come first served.

hell, you can give away an ebon mace to me anyday. i dont even play on your server, but ill make a char... just for you

Where does it drop?

Tents or Pits? Or can he spawn at either?
Does anyone know drop rates etc, is it an always drop or will he usually have spider fur or terror hide stuff?

RE: Where?
# Sep 10 2002 at 6:22 PM Rating: Decent
Drops in the pit. go thru the false wall at the end of safe hall and drop all the way down. Problem is, you need a port to get out of there. Ahhhh, the 124th reason why a melee should carry a thrug port potion AT ALL TIMES. heh
Very nice
# Sep 18 2001 at 10:51 PM Rating: Default
This sword is extremely nice. Like a Shrunken Goblin Earring that swings =). I just got it not too long ago, it is currently replacing my Darkmetal Falchion, and its doing an extremely good job. The look may be tacky, but who cares for looks, I can hit in 80's with it and it is 25 dly. My Atk is 941 when I use grim aura, and it is great for debuffin mobs.
RE: Very nice
# May 06 2002 at 10:25 AM Rating: Decent
I hope you didn't destroy your Darkmetal Falcion.. they upgraded it to 27dmg 29delay not long ago. Beats this sword pretty good now.

Just got this nice piece last knight. I was only SK in the group at the time so it was mine. This sword is Great i was using a MOSS but gave it to guild when i got this one. Little dissapointed int the look considering it looks like Dark Reaver but who cares peeps will know it's not when they see u with a shield. Mob was very tough, we had two warriors over 54 and a 57cleric healing with a 56 mage blasing away and of course thank god for the chanter holding off all the other meanies. Anyways he was a tough one to kill took us a good 5 min to drop him. All in all though i would have to say this sword is the ****. )

Better than Ebon/Noc
# Aug 07 2001 at 3:05 PM Rating: Default
As a Dark Elf, this is simply one of the best one hand weapon in the game. AC and Damage/Delay is King. Only other thing Ive seen on my serve rthats Better is the Black RockMaul of Crushing. Which is a Temple of Veeshan server.

However, this weapon PISSES me off. So easily obtainable. I've seen a Level 10 SK with this weapon. It made the price of the Noc come down from 20k to 13k on the Innoruuk server. What the hell was Verant thinking?

Another cool thing about it is that Paladins get the shaft again, heh. You can buy MoSS for 1k. Noc for 13k, but the SoM is like 20 - 25k. The Mace of the Shadowed Soul is the reason why ShadowKnights are better than any Paladin. (Dont make any dumb comments, just my opinion. Sure, a Paladin with SoM might be able to beat a SK with a MoSS)

Go there with your main, and camp you SK at the entrance so when one drops you can get it. And be cool =)
Like me =)
RE: Better than Ebon/Noc
# Jan 10 2002 at 6:50 PM Rating: Decent
Actually, paladins don't get screwed one this one. A named mob in the same camp, Jelinek Icepaw, drops the Sword of Blessings, same stats, except I believe the effect is one that cures disease/poison.

Better than a noct..
# Aug 06 2001 at 11:56 PM Rating: Decent
I can't believe what I'm hearing.... this sword beats the living **** out of a Noctivagant blade! It has 1 more damage 1 LESS delay, 10 AC (and its still 1 hand slash) AND 50 mana to compensate for the missing int... and what moron wouldn't trade 10 dex for 10ac? Trust me, I have a noct and would use this over it any day!
