I found it off a berserker behind the fort. He had a 2handed velium too but showed neither. I got the hammer off the berserker recently so just thought... and was right! Maybe they moved the drops to berserkers only cuz they happened so fast, when we have been looking for almost a week on scouts

I have a lvl 10 pally that has this. This thing procs like crazy and I only have 89 dex, at least twice for every mob I fight, too bad I'm too low lvl for it to actually take effect. My iksar sk used to have it and he hits for 64's at lvl 22.

You might be confused with the Drakkel IceGRINDER?
The 2hb weapon?

Becuase the Drakkel IceREAVER does not proc for my level 27 SK.

Grinder procs from lvl 1
Reaver Suposedly lvl 30 (I can't confirm this myself)

i believe what he/she is trying to say, is he/she gets the "your will is not sufficient to command this weapon" message ALOT.
which is what happens when a weapon attempts to proc, but you arent high enough for it to. i remember getting that occassionally on my necro with my velium great staff i was twinked with
Ice Rend?

What exactly does the Ice Rend proc on this do? And when does it proc? Bought it for my Pally who is now level 21 and haven't seen it proc once, getting kind of curious.
it rocks

I'm a lvl 23 warrior and the Ice Rend effect seems to never been triggered. Is that normal?What is the lvl needed to trigger the ability of that sword? Do I have to do something special? Btw, I bought mine for, hum hum, 50pp (yeah!) at the bazzaar.

Just for informations sake... I too picked up one of these in the bazaar for 50 plat... Love when people dont do the research when they price things, or when they just dont care about making the profit.

I have a Lvl 4 Cleric Human that I twinked with the Hammer form of this weapon. The ice rend works on about every second or third mob he fights.
Amazing Twink Item

My druid ran across one of these while killing Frost Giants for the shawl quests. At first I was going to sell it to a merchant, and then I gave a second look at the stats. It seemed better than the crystallized blade my pally twink had on her (pally is my first melee, so I'm still a bit new to dmg/delay ratios and such). Well at 23, my pally can consistently hit for 40 plus. I can hardly wait to get her to lvl 30 and see this puppy proc. Sells for about 500p in the Bazaar on Innoruuk server, so I'll hang on to this one for a while!

After hunting Scouts in Great Divide for about 12 to 15 hours over the course of several days, I saw 2 or 3 of these drop. The proc of 30hps of direct damage is alright, but with the longer delay this proc becomes less of an issue. At 15 stones this blade is quite heavy. All things considered, I would probably stick with my BABS over this.

I saw one of these drop ages ago while fighting in a group killing elites in GD. Today I had one drop off a frost giant scout while soloing. Imagine my surprise (and delight)! Also dropped a velium rapier and a head.

What about Halflings
# Apr 18 2002 at 12:05 PM Rating: Decent
Are they ever gonna make this useable by halflings, now that WE can be Paladins? Made a pretty good deal trading a Bonecollecors Hammer and a Centi SS for this, only to realize afterward that it is NOT useable by Halflings....When I checked, I saw Paladin, and forgot to check race... DOH!!!

I feel your pain. I just looted one while soloing in GD with my cleric and thought it would be a nice gift for my level 20 pally, but dwarves can't use it either. Smiley: frown
drop info
# Apr 10 2002 at 4:00 PM Rating: Decent
Acquired my first one off a frost giant behind the giant fort in GD (gave to my warrior), and the second one off a FG Berserker from a pull within the fort. Common drop obviously is the velium swords, and you see them carry the weapons, although a few times the FG's would have two weapons (showing a hammer, but drops a sword too).

BTW, have only seen this drop in group and in solo a total of four times (including my two) out of hundreds slain giants while working on CoV faction.
Icereaver procs at 30
# Jan 17 2002 at 5:39 AM Rating: Good
everyone keeps asking why this thing procs at lvl 30, the reason for this is that Velious is supposed to be for lvl 30+. assuming you are the right lvl for this place it would proc for you when you get it in the place it drops, Great Divide. just be greatful that it procs at lvl 30 instead of like most the Kunark weapons that proc at lvl 45. oh yeah, this thing weighs more than a VW beattle too
good or bad
# Jan 15 2002 at 3:15 PM Rating: Good
well well the battle of the reavers it seems this reaver has some very good dmg and delay compared to the dark reaver which is 20/42 effect steal 30 str i personal have this weapon and i think it is great the dmg of 24 plus i have 3 dmg bouns on mine makes this a better weapon than the dark reaver, sure 30str can be good for increasing damage but i only saw a 2 point increase compared to the icereaver which is a 30dd effect over all my sk can deal over 100points of dmg with this beast i say stay with the icereaver way better than the darkreaver

My Icereaver shows a Damage Bonus of 2. It just showed up yesterday 11/21/2001. I had just made lvl 28. Is this correct or is there a bug or something?

Just picked this nice sword up for 350pp on Xev. Kinda heavy, but I just use Invigor to compensate. Shows +11 dmg bonus at level 45.

With out a doubt this is a nice weapon. My ranger bought one but I wont say how much for I know it was worth more than she payed. Impatience is what drives the market value down to. Any way I noticed that the proc was like casting a spell in that she was delayed in swinging till it was done. When she hits for 52 to 70+ with it and the proc did some where in the mid 30s I got to wondering if it would be better that it didnt proc and she kept swinging.

i got mine for 900pp, he said it wuz worth 2K, 2K my BUTT! dratz, and it procs at lvl 30!!!! double drats, i HAD 2 canes of tranquil, i should not have sold, i am killing guards in Nek and my 2HS is so low that these blues can almost beat me =p
# Jul 03 2002 at 12:46 PM Rating: Decent
this sword is worth nearly 2k if you look in books and stuff, worth approx. 1,650pp. it is a nice weapon i use it on my lvl 27 paladin, i dont hit full yet cuz it procs at lvl 30 but i hit for about 60-70 with it, which is better than most lvl 20-30's. it procs at lvl 30 cuz its dropped n velious and velious is a lvl 30+ area. it would be stupid to have a lvl 5 wep drop here, overall its a great wep and gets the job done nicely and effectively if you are not an idiot and know how to use it right, then when you do decide to get rid of it, its worth some money so dont throw it away unless u really are stupid!

humm first of all is you fault for not keeping your abilities up to date thats why for that you get the stupid award any melle class should know by now that it will help you int eh long run if you keep your abilities up to date you never know when you going to walk accros a weapon that you will like to have

and with out no further delay i present malkeric whit the stupid award !!!!

Warning: this person cnat spell for the simple reason that she has smoked to much crack.

cant wait for this to proc. got an awesome deal on Bristlebane server for 223p and a cabilis scale mantle. this guy was selling everything really low. i would imagine this weapon to be worth about 500pp easy.
Dwarves can not use :(

My 40 Dwarf pally looted 1 on a winning roll only to find out his /race/class/diety cannot equip item. The base damage is the same as the Black Aloy Basterd Sword (24 dam), and 40 dely compared to the 39 on the BABS. The 33 proc would have been nice but im hiting in the 90's now with the BABS so I guess I will just have to live with it. Needless to say I gave the IR to a Human Pally in my next group that was totaly lacking in a 2hs weapon. They sell for around 700pp on my server.
RE: Dwarves can not use :(
# Oct 19 2001 at 6:21 AM Rating: Good
... plus the BABS has a weight of just 2.5! This baby hear weights a ton!

i got my ice reaver at lvl 20 and then i had to start a new account i would like to know when it procs

thanx aaero
Whats this worth...
# Sep 24 2001 at 1:33 PM Rating: Decent
I just picked one of these off a giant, and was wondering what it is worth. I have heard that it is nothing more then merchant fodder. I may still be newer to the game and to better weapons, but IMO 24/40 with a 30dd proc has got to be worth more then what a merchant will give for it. I think any mid lvl ranger that can get his hands on one of these should be happy. With 139str and not even master at 2hs i hit for max of 57pts avg of 30. Add the 30dd icerend and 35dd CoS, you do a great deal of damage. If only i had known that there were other ways to deal damage besides 1hs. So to all you new rangers out there, heck for all characters everywhere i say work on all weapon skills available to you. Someday you may just come across a weapon that is godly compaired to what you are using now and having a skill lvl of 25 in it will not make you happy.

I LOVE THIS WEAPON!!! I really love it!! BUT!!,, why does it start to proc at 30(supposed) and the ICEGRINDER... procs at lvl 5?? Can someone helpme??
re:my take on this
# Sep 02 2001 at 6:54 AM Rating: Default
your a 40th warrior and your best crit to date is 167!? WEAK!! Ive had multiple crits unbuffed since 30 in 250 range. I do regular hits for 100's. All Im using is a mithril staff. Yes this bad boy would compare but I think I prefer mithril staff over this. Makes me unique to be a warrior hitting that hard with a blunter.

Swear to god I picked up this bad-boy in Fay-mart on Xev for 400pp. Now, Xev's a cheap server, but that a pretty good deal heeheh.
Anyway, at 31 I hit consistently for 52 and it procs 3 to 4 times during a relatively short fight. The weight doesnt seem to be an issue, but I keep invigor memm'ed just in case.
RE: Bargain
# Oct 19 2001 at 3:02 AM Rating: Default

Some moron on Xev was auctioning this in GD, i asked him the price, he told me 3kpp. I was so shocked i didn't reply and he /tell me "It is a good price, very good ratio and procs often. Lowest price already, I sold one before at 4kpp."

I was like....yeah right.... who can be that hard-up for an Icereaver? for 4kpp i can buy a Wurmy and put that on one hand!! Instead of using 2hs for the same price. Geez!
Just got one
# Jul 08 2001 at 3:09 PM Rating: Default
I just got one of these today. traded my nathsar greatsword it and boy is it good. its good damage and good delay. havent gotten it to proc yet though. Id say its only downside is its weight. 15wt to me is very heavy. but over all its a good wep
