When doing the 7th Coldain Ring I usually get one of these off of Warden Bruke http://eqbeastiary.allakhazam.com/search.shtml?id=6027 with an over 50% drop rate at least. Have 2 or so on trader or waiting to be put on trader.
Lucky!

I must've gotten really lucky...I found one of these on an NPC vendor in PoK for 1 Copper! Somebody wasn't paying attention to what they were selling :-)

Looks like this will be a nice weapon for my alt when I start playing him.

For those of us without Luclin upgrade, can someone get it from the bazaar for Me? And do I need the Velius upgrade to see/wield it?
I had someone going to sell to Me in Halas (Erollissi Marr) for 60pp but both times he logged on Me.
Anyone willing to get it and sell to Me?
procs at lvl 1

yea i am not lying yaulp 2 at lvl 1 even a cleric or pally can't beat that. 25 dam weapon even as slow as it is i hit with ogre shm for 14 - 19pts. makes low lvling easy and fast.also for ogre shm do the symbol quest from the guild leader and you have right click yaulp then proc yaulp 2 think about it.

i recently bought this in the bazaar for 50pp. im a lvl 27 beastlord and in about 2 days ive increased my 2hb skill to 100 with this weapon. this is a great training weapon or just a regular attack weapon (i use my ulaks most though). with this i hit for about 30-55 dmg regularly. i highly reccomend this to a newbie or a mid-lvl character.
Brilliant weapon!

Bought one from the Bazaar yesterday for 20pp with the sole purpose of testing out my pet.

As a 46th level SK, our pets as a rule suck, though I heard a rumour that if you gave them a weapon with a damage rating > 1/2 the max hit of the pet then the pet will hit for the damage rating of the weapon * 2.

So on my 39th level pet which hits for a max of 22, I tried this weapon.

Not only was it hitting regularly for 30+ damage (max was 46) it was also procing Yaulp II which was very funny to see :-)

Unfortunately the 49th pet dual wields so I will be looking for a 1 handed weapon with a damage rating higher than 14...

Worth while as an SK lower than 49th to buy up all the <20pp high damaging 2 handed weapons and give them to your pet.

Makes a difference...

Be safe,

Yes, these are great pet weapons if you can find 'em cheap in the bazaar.

The pet's max damage always seems to be 2x the weapon's damage rating; with a few exceptions like the Weighted Axe which doesn't seem to have any effect. (too bad hehe.)

Paid 15pp for one of these Frost Giant Femurs at level 16(necro), breezed to nearly level 18 in Paludal Cavern before the pet poofed for some reason (pathing glitch prolly). The pet was hitting for 50 max. Normal for level 16 pet is 20 max. No observable loss of attack speed. I was on pace to gain 2 levels in 2 hours.

Even when you get to a pet that dual-wields, arming him with one of these would probably be better. Dual-wielding if often misundertood, overestimated. People seem to have a tendency to just multiply damage by 2 when thinking about dual-wield, and that's way wrong. A dual-wielding pet, especially under level 30, is not going to even come close to doubling the damage of a single-wielding one with the same max hit.

I don't have specific numbers for pets...but for PC warriors around level 30 (dual wield skill around 125), the off-hand weapon damage output is about 31% of what the same weapon would yield in the main hand.

As a 51 warrior, when it's appropriate (not main tank), I can put out a lot more damage with a nice 2-hander. Granted my 1-handers aren't really up to par with the 2-hander, still the difference is more than that.

It's hard to draw any firm conclusions from comparing my weapons, too many variables (bonus damage, magic dmg on LSoEE, etc. etc.) But I understand your percentage chance for dual-wielding is your dual-wield skill / 500. So it's 200/500, or 40%, at level 50, and 155/500 or 31% at level 30.

So I'm guessing a dual-wielding pet that hits for 28 is gonna do a lot less damage than an armed one hitting for 50.

Other notes on arming your pet:
- if you give him a really weak 2-hander his damage doesn't go down.
- his attack speed doesn't change no matter what weapon: fast ones don't speed him up, slow ones don't slow him down.

In summary: These days, with the bazaar the way it is, buying pet weapons is EXTREMELY well worth it if you can possibly afford them, to level 30 and beyond. At middle levels you can afford it, for a modest gain in pet damage output. At low levels, if you can scrape up the cash, you can turn your pet into a MONSTA.

The absolute best way to twink a young mage or necro is just give them some bazaar money so they can arm their pets.

Just checking merchants as I usually do, I also came across 2 of these on the merchant behind the counter in the bank in Halas. He is still selling them for 1 copper each. Gotta love the reasoning behind this? =) Put one on my shammy and one on my warrior barbarian characters. Ive found awesome items by just checking merchants frequently.

I bought this wepean for 500 pp on Povar. I love it. Procs alot for a 25 sk and the str puts me up in the 200. At 25 I can hit into the 90's but average around 60 to 70.

only 50's? :P quite a bit higher than that...i max high 80's with the sentry maul (22/43 2hb) as an iksar...so all u big races would hit probably high 90's to 100 with this bad boy and with the proc...probably somewhere into the 110's or so

Once he reaches the same level as you, perhaps. There are regular damage bonuses past 20 if i remember right, biggest ones being at every hell level.

Where to get one

Contrary to what is posted above this item ONLY drops from Warden Bruke in EW and he'll drop it every single time.

Of course killing the warden isn't easy... unless you're a bard.

I have two for sale on Fennin... give a tell to Sourtone if you want one.
RE: Where to get one

Sorry Mr. Bard, but I have six of them in my bank vault.... I'm a 53 magician using 51 earth pet, BO/DS/EXP. I hate to give up this secret, but never pull the Warden from the front. If you'll notice the building he's in has a huge notch on both sides... Pull from the side and you will only pull him! All the additional frost giants still spawn, but they walk into the heart of the building and take post, later vanishing. At this point you still have one mad Warden on your tail but get some distance from all the adds around the building, send pet, char, char, char. When he comes after you because of regaining aggro, run backwards using your jboots/SoW and already have your Pegasus Feather Cloak activated. He hits hard so be warned. At 53 he gives me 3 notches of exp and burns about 70% of my mana using char. Thank God for KEI :)

Just bought one of these off of a friend the other night for 800pp. I figure it was a good offer. Started to use it, but missed a lot. Found out if you keep you STR and DEX up, you hit more and get better with it. The Yaulp is pretty cool. It will keep casting as long as you are hitting. Very cool weapon. If you can get one for under 1kpp, I reccomend it. Don't pay more than 2kpp for it, or they are rippen you off.
