This item can be used in tradeskills, as can other velium weapons.

For this one, combine in a forge with a Velium Smith Hammer.

It makes a Small Piece of Velium and a Small Brick of Velium.

It is no fail and appears that is not a learned recipe (it diod not show up in the forge recipe list after I successfully did the combine)..

Currently our recipe system doesn't have a way to break items down so I added the recipes onto the Small Piece of Velium and Small Brick of Velium.

Im a lvl 7 ShadowKnight and it proc'd for me the other night. It may have been a fluke, since I too have heard it does not proc until 25.

Generic Velium weapon Info...

Pretty Much the Velious equivalent of fine Steel, all of this "Velium <insert weapon>" drops off 25ish and up mobs on teh Velious continent, Very common drops if you hunt in velious and Procs @ lv 25, I have heard many conflicting reports for the proc but I can guarantee you it all procs @ 25, no sooner, no later, sells to a vendor for about 5pp give or take and makes a nice gift to noobs, this is not to say that all weapons that have velium in the name are junk, just these generic ones, there are some really nice weapons that have some real nice stats but you will know the difference by not only the stats but also the fact that name is not a common name (ie short sword, great staff, long sword etc.) hope this info helps

A friend gave me this weapon and a Velum Long sword. What do they do? And is this better than a combine Long sword. I am very new to this game and I don't know what these weapons do.

I am kinda new to the game. When using this sword on my lvl 17 ranger it says "you do not have the will to command this weapon" What does that mean.

Why don't you have information on my sword? Has it been modified by a Wizard? Is that possiable?

My sword has a damage of "10", and is valued at 42pp.

What does it mean when it says affects:Velium shards??

The price is correct.

This thing should only be bought for 20-30pp. I've seen it sold for as little as 10pp by someone in a pinch for money in east commons on Vazaelle. The most i've ever seen it go for was when i myself payed 45pp for it. I wanted it to twink out one of my lower characters, and i didn't want to wait for another bidder to show up :)
Velious NOT Required

I got this weapon from another PC in a sale. I do not have the Velious package.

Does anyone know when this thing begins to proc?
RE: Proc?
# Jan 17 2001 at 2:04 AM Rating: Default
I have heard that they proc at 25. But I also just read on battlezinc's EQ weapon database that it procs at 27.

BTW it is worth 200-250pp and I just bought one from the merchant in Freeport's bank for 66pp!

Anyways, I'm 22 and will find out when it procs for myself :)

# Jun 02 2002 at 6:55 PM Rating: Decent
Merchants always charge more and pay less for player items. That does not change the value, as a character would not pay another character 66pp for this sword.
# Dec 16 2000 at 10:36 PM Rating: Default
how much is it worth?....and at what lvl does it proc??
# Dec 21 2000 at 9:07 PM Rating: Default
