i say regardless of the level this thing procs, for any non-caster like my rogue or a warrior an extra 38 DMG every few hits is quite nice. 8)
What level does it proc?

So.... This procs at what level?
RE: What level does it proc?
# Feb 17 2004 at 4:45 PM Rating: Decent
Why on Norrath would they hold the proc on this til level 40? It is a level 8 wizzy spell, I'm sure by 40 we could find something better than this--I'm currently using at 21 only because it was a gift and I can't afford a new weap, with the outrageously high cost of spells.

Damage bonuses are not applied to the damage rating, but the actual damage.

Your wurmslayer is still a 25/40, but it adds 4 damage on each swing. IT IS NOT A 29/40 WEAPON
#REDACTED, Posted: May 26 2003 at 12:01 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Actually it IS 4 damage to the rating, why do you think high level warriors often carry lammies? Because it would be a 13/18 weapon. At lower levels, it can only be 1 dmg bonus, but my mythril knuckles (13/28) are 14/28 instead and do a whole heck of a lot more damage than one point, before I got the bonus.
RE: Needs to be primary/secondary
# Nov 12 2003 at 4:17 PM Rating: Good
You are wrong, Biskwik. It is damage added onto each successful swing. If it were added onto the rating, my 45/44 2hb with a Damage Bonus of 40 would be an 85/44 and it would hit for more than 298 damage every swing.
Procs at 40.

I've carried this bad boy for many seasons now.
Started procing for 38 pts DD (cold based) when I hit level 40.
Make sure you have your DEX buff on and this thing will go to town!!

My Iksar BST is 39 and has had this spear for a while. It has never proced and his Wis is 193 and a Dex of 134. Here's hoping it starts at lvl 40.

Proc. level must have changed somewhere along the line then because it proc'd for sure before 40 for a shammy I had a year or two ago who is less than 40 still.
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 05 2002 at 11:38 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I am a 33 Shaman and I made it proc several times ... It appears to me that it always happen when I have a C3 on me and get more than 175WIs and aournd 100INt don't know exactly when it procs but each time I upgrade my WIS I look if it starts to proc again. It could also be linked with INT but as I don't buy INT gear I won't see it.
RE: When does it proc

# Aug 17 2002 at 2:24 PM Rating: Default
oops sorry about that, but what i wanted to say was, if this proc is a level 8 wizzy spell y does it proc at level 40? i just bought one because i though it proced at a lower level.
Stupid spear
RE: darn
# Apr 06 2003 at 5:57 PM Rating: Decent
Stupid spear huh? Nice ratio if you ask me, and for the proc: Do you think it's fair for a lvl 8 (or above)character to cast a MANA FREE 40 dmg DD everytime they swung/stabbed/whatever with this thing, when a wizzy has to pay mana to use it? AND have it possibly interrupted? Stupid spear my ***** maybe 40 is a bit high, but 8 is certainly too low. So think again before you toss a good weapon because it doesnt proc yet......happy trails!

which is better
# Apr 29 2002 at 9:17 PM Rating: Decent
i know the dmg of the spine chill spear is better then the burning rapier but the rapier procs early then the spear does and the proc is 1dmg point less but the rapier is a little faster and has stats a rogue needs more? what should i do? i was thinking of getting the rapier then when i get to lvl i believe 40 which is when the spear procs us that instead of the rapier?

USe both, Spear procd more than my rapier, but it appears the spear proc stuns the mob for a short time, making a strafing BS a possibility.

3 of us, 39 ranger, 40 wizy, and 41 druid (me) pounded the snot out of this guy last night. we're not twinks either cuz these are our first characters. we were running long the coast last night when out of no where he agroed the wizy. I have no clue what the hell he was doin way out there either. He dropped the Rygorr battlemail. would have been wicked if he droped the spear also, my beastlord could really use it.

I finally finagled a Charred Guardian Shield and a Spine Chill Spear to replace my Mortificator Staff. Since the MS is 2hb I know I'm better off with the 15 wis the two new items provide me rather than the 7 wis 45 mana the MS gave me. I'm having a hard time selling my MS and am considering holding on to it since there are other wis buffing items out there that can sufficiently buff my wis without having to give up the MS for good. If I can get a good price or good trade for my MS I'll go ahead and do it but I'm not in as much of a hurry to relinquish this rare item as I previously was. I suppose I'll just test the winds and see what comes from my patience. It's hard to give up an item that has been good to me for so very, very long. I'm still looking for an Ebon War Spear for my range slot unless something better comes along. But now that my wis is hovering at the 200 range I'm feeling more comfortable with holding on to the MS until a sweet deal comes along. Here's to hoping!

Good luck selling that morty staff, those things are junk by today's standards. Way back when they rocked because shaman had almost zero weapon choices but nowdays those things are a sad joke. Not sure why any shaman would use 2hb and give up all that AC and wis from a shield. I wouldn't personally pay 200p for a morty staff anymore and I can remember when they sold for 5k plus.
RE: Finally!
# Jan 14 2003 at 12:17 AM Rating: Decent
This Shaman has a great 2hb weapon - Barbarian Spiritist Hammer. Plus 13 wis/int and procs for 251dd at level 36 (did 243dd at level 30 which is when it starts to proc). With all that being said I will still buy a Spine Chill at 40 just to keep my piercing skill up. And if nothing else you can always carry spears in your range slot to get the wis buff without actually having to fight with them.

I have this weapon on an alt shammy that was given to me by a friend. I'm only lvl 19 right now as I don't play him alot but fully buffed and ready to go this weapon would proc like mad because everytime I'm fighting something you get the "your will in insufficent to wield this weapon". I must see that message 4 or 5 times per battle. Figure it may be a weak dd but procing 4 or 5 times that adds up. I can't wait till I get high enough for the weapon to proc.

This sweet spear was given to me for free by a level 57 shaman..Looks like I'll have to make about 5 lvls before it procs, but I like the +6 wisdom.

First of all it procs at 40... I got mine as an unespected gift by helping to buff and heal a very nice lvl 49 war who was camping ice giants. I asked for nothing in return so he handed me a great weapon (go fig) anyway, I have a jade prod already and have found myself haveing a problem... The prod is 11/30 and the spear is 10/28. Seeing how I'm only in the low 20s, I've opted to use the prod till I get a little higher, which is what I suggest to anyone who has both and aren't lvl 40 yet. But since this thing does have a very nice dd for a proc, if you've only got a few lvls left till 40 and see this thing, buy it and bank it till you hit that lvl. 40 has been called the worst lvl in the game, maybe that kind of birthday present will help soften the blow.
RE: my addition
# Oct 05 2001 at 5:48 PM Rating: Default
ive never heard 40 called the worst level =p

45 and most of the 50+ levels are much worse
RE: my addition
# May 31 2002 at 12:59 PM Rating: Default
BTW, I picked one of these up for my twinked shammy alt. One of the advantages of 50+, is the ability to start some alts that you can twink big time. Being a wiz with porting abilities, I can make big time pp, which I can use to buy very good equipment for my alt.

Some of you may turn your nose up at the low-level proc of this item. However, understand that if your skill is maxed, and you have haste added, you will proc this weapon alot during a fight. That 38dd proc'ed several times during a fight will add up, and be worth the same as a comparable dd shammy nuke at the proc level. It's also FREE damage without MANA.

Dont turn your nose up at proc items. Get one if you can. The major proc items are restricted to lvl 51 (club of the ice ocean for example).

51+ just sucks, lol. You watch your xp just crawl. It's even worse when you start adding aa points.

Yeppers. Mine finally started procing when I hit 40. Coupled with a Dragon Horn Ykesha, I am one processing d00d.

While fighting a Hill Giant in Rathe, I had 8 procs in one battle with these two weapons.

Just so you all know this weapon procs at lvl 40, i just dinged 40 and it now procs, so good luck. oh and also.. prices dropped majorly, see them sell for around 600
# Sep 05 2001 at 1:52 PM Rating: Default
I have one of these on my new rogue (had to start over because of complex reasons) and it is a great weapon BUT it doesn't proc on me in forever and a year. I was wondering if there is a good piercer out there that is just as good but doesn't have a proc or has a proc of 10 or so. There should be something with 10dmg and 25 dly or SOMETHING.... shouldn't there be? Anyway, my plan was to do a straight across trade and not get a better/worse weapon, just get the same value and not have to get to lvl 42 for the weapon's full use to come into effect. PLZ help me out here. Donka shan and peace!
RE: Hmmmmm....
# Sep 07 2001 at 4:19 AM Rating: Default
How about a slime coated harpoon. 10 dam 25 dly no proc.
RE: Hmmmmm....
# Sep 07 2001 at 9:27 AM Rating: Default
I thought it was lower damage.... I'll check on it though, thnx.
RE: Hmmmmm....
# Oct 24 2001 at 5:01 PM Rating: Decent
Another thing to consider.

Some of the famous 1k spear for shaman

slime coated Harpoon
Spine Chill spear
Jade Chokidai Prod

When a shaman buy spear DO NOT forget to check if it go into range slot.

EG. Jade prod and SPine chill both go into primary only

G'day all,

I was in North Kaladim yesterday when I see one of these on auction, so I send a tell to the seller: Talane a high lvl hummie Druidess that had just kindly bind me there.

I ask her for some info about that SPS, and then gasp at the stats of that wonderful spear (nice for a WIS caster), then I try to swap it for a blackened alloy longsword, blackened alloy gloves and lizardscale mantle (AC5 INT3 WIS3). she just inspects me, and finally gives me the spear for free, telling me that I've not tried to con her and did an honest trade, telling me then to remember once I'm a high lvl to do so with low lvl players ! Be sure I will...

Man how glad I was to get such a nice Piercer since I really need to raise my skill.

Many thanks again Talane, you rule !

woodie ranger,

Be also warned that killing da chief may spawn the avengers which won't take kindly to you and will rough you up. They will however be kind enough to gate you to your bind spot (less your gear of course)

Last night I grouped with a LVL 23 TWINKED monk in LOIO, having a overall good time beating the crap outa stuff with my Velium spear. We played for a hour or 2 and b4 he logged he told me he would give me a good spear if he ever finds one. I wasn't really expecting anything when today he messages me tellin me he got something for me, he popped it in the trade window i gasped. So i got a free SCS today and man WOW what a freakin difference. I seriously outdamaged both the warrior and ranger i grouped with today ( i'm a shammy BTW) Someday i will do the same as he did to me. Wahoo!
