Crystalised Sword

[i]Crystalised sword was given to me just last night by a level 40 cleric friend of mine on The Rathe Server. the stats are 29 delay and 11 damage...sounds like a good blade. but am a little confused here. what do you all mean when your talking YAK? and Offhand does that refer to secondary once you can dual wield? Would appreciate any Knowledgable replies. Thanks
Would this be good?

Would this be good offhand weapon for a rogue with a Jagged chokidal spine?

11 dmg for your rogue offhand would be good if you couldn't find anything with extra stats on it. I use the jagged chokidal spine in my offhand because of the darkness proc. My 1hs is 156 so if I decide to use a CentiSS or any other 1hs with some extra stats, my 1hs skill is okay.
love it!

Pay attention, this one is 11/29 and there are lots of similar named/looking swords as the person below mentioned but this is the one you want till you can afford the sebilis one. I't basically icetooth claws for either hand, a little harder to come by but worth it. The reason this is better is that it dishes out amazing damage but has a low taunt factor since damage comes from it's 11dam value instead of from a low delay value or a proc. Now I'm not talking amazing like warrior epics or jade mace or anything but for weaps in the 500-1k range this is the champ because it will slash circles around a yak for half the price and the best part is that since it has such a low taunt factor it's great for primary hand of bards or rangers or even as an offhand weap for a rogue. In my rogue's offhand it was nuts to watch all that damage come out and not have to worry about getting off the mob's hate list, also experimented with a warrior and a yak, the yak was easily the taunt master, a definite no no to put yak in rogue offhand, especially if you've got decent dex, but the warrior and I both noticed she could hold aggro much easier with the yak even though these two side by side seemed to do about the same damage if you count ykesha procs.

The one I used was a gift from a friend but I've seen them go for around 500 on luclin and terris.

Yak and CS. . .
# Nov 09 2001 at 2:35 PM Rating: Decent
I've had this weapon for quite a while, and as a tank, it has served me well. I've been duel wielding it with a BALS, and even as a warrior, I've been able to do a fair amount of soloing, because of it. I just traded my BALS for a Yak, and as far as I can tell, I'm quite a bit better off. With the Yak in my secondary hand, I've been able to tear through most foes. I believe though, that this combination is better reversed. I'm going to put the Yak in my primary hand, and the CS in my secondary. I think I'll be able to continue successfully soloing as a warrior for a bit longer now.

"I just traded my BALS for a Yak...".. I don't know why but that comment just sounds hilarious to me.. hehehe

The Real Scoop
# Nov 02 2001 at 3:56 PM Rating: Decent
One RL year ago I hunted CC for about 5 RL weeks trying to get this sword. I don't know if the frequency of it's drops has been changed, but i do know the price has dropped. Last summer(2000) it's PC was 800pp.

To follow, there are 4 different 'crystal' 1hs weapons:

1) Crystalline Blade 11/38, All 1hs types. Not worth your time and it doesn't drop in CC. (be careful when trying to buy the Crystal blades or swords from a peep, these all look the same and you can take a bit hit in the bank if ya get them confused.. I did...but at that time the pc was 800 for the Crystallized Sword /bonk Shone) pc- 150ish

2) Crystallized Blade 13/31, SK-only. This is the common drop off of the Drachnid Retainer (DR)pc- 250ish //Sorry Gena, no patch, this has always been called blade//

3) Crystallized Sword 11/29, All 1hs types. This is a rare drop off of a uncommon spawn of the DR in CC. Great mid level sword for the off hand. pc-500ish (I still think it should be 800 because of the off hand capablility and light wt.)

4) Crystalline Short Sword 12/24, All 1hs types. If you don't know the stats on this then you should stick to CC for a while longer. This drops in Sebilis and is a very nice one had slash weapon for 10k.

That is all I have, anymore questions?

Win some you lose some, looks like you're winning. Bought one for 100-150 (forget which) sold it for 200, but the buyer had been looking for days, and was auctioning for one, so... I'd say 100-150 is the usual.

haha u must have been mistaken it for the blade for the whole time. blade is 13/31 sword is 11/29 newbie mistake indeed
I think the sword has changed...

I looted this sword off a Drachnid Retainer last night in Crystal Caverns. The sword is clearly a "Crystallized Sword" but has different stats on it than are shown above. It is 13 damage, 31 delay, and only Paladins and Shadowknights can weild it (our group practiced need before greed and the Paladin with a Wurmslayer and a Ghoulbane allowed me to loot it since I would actually use it). It had an "Effect:" property on the item description window, but had no effect specified.

I'm not sure what the issue is, or what the future of the item may be, but if anyone thinks it's worthwhile I could post a screenshot of the item details.

Update Sep. 28, 2001:

Ok, When I logged in yesterday after a small patch, this sword changed it's name to Crystalized Blade whose stats it matches. That blade is supposed to drop off Queen Drachnia, but I clearly looted it off a Drachnid Retainer that was blue to me at 37. I guess I just had strange timing between a bug and the bug's fix. So in the end I wound up with Queen loot off a Drachnid Retainer.

This is a good weapon to be used with the Icetooth's claws, (11/29, weight 2.0, primary only) and can do a lot of damage through the upper teens to lower 30's.
sad really

Isn't a BI (for i refuse to acknowledge alloy) Longsword 10 29. I'd get that and use the money you saved for something else

Actually, this is a great wepon to spend the extra plat on, 1 damage can go a long way
Great for Ranger

I am currently dual wielding this sword with the icetooh's claws, and am very happy with the damage output. I have tried dual wielding yaks, and I have to say I'm better off with this combo. Damage is better, and due to a high dex, I was taunting with the yak proc more than I would like. I had thought the proc would be good, but being a ranger, taunting higher lvl MOBS off the warriors and onto me didn't help my cause at all. Kinda defeats the purpose of the warrior takin' the brunt of the damage. Not to mention that I have about 500pp into this combo, vs. the price Yak's go for, I really can't complain.
An Alternative

If you can muster up a decent group, I recommend getting a Blackened Alloy Longsword instead. It drops off of various Pickclaw goblins on level four of Runnyeye. I would guess that a group of level 25 or so players could get one with ease, whereas this...
I just traded for it

I had 2 bards in Lake Of Omen offering me both over 1kpp for my Gleaming Short Sword (10/29 +g Charisma). But i could not think of a sword to get with just 1kpp. So i turned them 2 down. I went to East Commonlans C and I auctioned want to trade my sword for a Crystallized Sword, and to my surprise, no one knew what it was. I talked to a barbarian and he said he'd trade it, and I told him that the gleaming sword was very much sought after by bards for its speed and charisma stats and he bought my story. Charisma is gonna do nothing for my paladin in battle whose charisma is already high. So, i got a whole +1 in damage from the upgrade (crystallized sword is 11/29). He even gave me an additional 50pp. Tonite, i shall get me big brother sword, 13/25 or so the seller said, but I cant find that sword anywhere on here... maybe another name. hmm see you in Unrest!

Our group pulled the Drachnid Retainer out of the Queen's room yesterday and this sword dropped off him. Was getting worried that it was no longer dropping in game. Khmer won the random. I've seen at least 3 of everything else in Crystal Caverns drop, including the Cloak of the Ry'gorr Oracle. Very nice to see this sword firsthand.

Rare These Days

On Povar these swords are very rare in the auction zones. I regularly see people auctioning to buy one. I think that the people that got them before the drop rate changed are hanging on to them and passing them to twinks and guildies. I was lucky enough to buy one right before the drop rate changed. I was offered 750pp for mine a few days ago, but I didn't sell because I still use it and can't think of anything to replace it with for 750pp. IMHO, it out damages a yak in the offhand.
#Lamini, Posted: Jun 25 2001 at 4:13 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I'm on cazic thule obviously (thats where this post is from, dont know why people from other servers are trying to buy it from here). My character name is Lamini and you probably have seen me if you've been around Oasis and North Ro. I've had the Velium Long Sword for a while and its pretty sad, but for 20pp it was worth it (hits in teens, while my bone claymore almost always hits 29). Email me if interested @
