So I just found out. Defiant (strongest guild on Vallon Zek) just did 10th ring quest. I was in GD so I stuck around to watch ... and get CoV faction. It was very fun.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 27 2001 at 5:19 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I usually play this character on Cazic Thule, in the Qeynos area. My other character, Starsunder is also on the same server, same area. I am willing to part with this bad boy with a decent bid, or trade plus money. Looking to upgrade my druid's armor, or weapon. Right now, (the druid) has a Black Enameled Mace. (1H Blunt) A nice magical item, but not a heavy hitter. Send me tells when I am on, and we'll work something out, hopefully.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 02 2001 at 5:33 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Im sellin one of these give me a tell. names Elventine or Bandaten

Wow, this is amazing... if you click on the name of the poster,when given, then click on one of the characters in their profile it tells you what Server they're from! In this case, it's the Veeshan server.
Who Drops It

Also dropped off of a Kromik warrior in Great Divide during the 10th ring quest raid.
What Drachnid?
# Jul 30 2001 at 8:44 AM Rating: Default
In the links to get here, the Drachnid Retainer is listed as one of the creatures that drop this. Can anyone confirm this? I've just arrived in CC and have only killed Spiders and Orcs so far.

I already have this axe though, got it with my Rogue (backstabbed a bunch of giants for it) and gave it to my Iks SK. I love the fact that it glows, thus clearing an inventory slot of the everpresent GLS.
RE: What Drachnid?
# Jul 29 2002 at 9:12 AM Rating: Default
Yes, I looted on off a Drachnid Retainer as recently as July 27th,2002.

Think it's a bit of a rare drop, I have been gathering silks in CC for a few days now and have only seen it drop once.
want to buy this or trade it for axe of frost and a good bow

Axe also drops off Kromrif Elite Guards just outside Thurgadin entrance in Great Divide during the special triggered event where the Kromrif are Invading Thurgadin.
Drop info
# Jun 06 2001 at 5:24 AM Rating: Default
drops of one of the named spiders in the queens room of crystal caverns. Off hand i would guess a group of 40 ish players could do this with the right pull method.Would not attempt to go to CC until lvl 33 min. Invis is almost a must if you want to get to queens room anytime soon. The orcs that roam and static pop are minimum 1k hp and hit pretty hard and fast. Some orcs are casters and will buff heal others along the way.
Queens room is pretty heavily camped so a camp check is advisable. Other than queens room loot is so-so.
This is a dungen so if you want sow better get it before you come in as it cant be cast later
Ramps are iced over and narrow if you are a large class advis shrink potion

lev is good to have here as well as a saftey for pullers if pulling around the ramps.

Dwarves have a city down at the bottom but generally will not sell or trade with you and as far as i know there is no way yet to raise faction

Would advise going to the beastiary here and looking up all mobs before going in so you get an isea of what you will be facing.
Hope this helps this is a nice axe, good luck
Great graphic and damage
# Jun 06 2001 at 5:05 AM Rating: Default
my mage got this axe in a multiple item deal,so i got it instead. This is by far the finnest looking axe in the game.On a dwarf it has a transparent blade that is mounted to a rich redoak colored handle the top and bottom of the hamdle have nice gold caps. Good damage for a lvl 13 I have taken out full kodiaks solo with this thing and did not get all beat up doing it.
Very nice item all around for me and i have been offered 1k for it but as I am a twink cash is not really an issue so i turned it down.

Well i jsut looted one of these the other day in GD, it was an event (the giants attacked the little folks and such)Well these things dropped like flies and i got one. Id say 500-600pp is fair, i wouldnt pay 1cp for it (but im a druid), however it is a damn fine looking weapon if i do say so. Today i was in gd and a guildmate asked me to buff him some at the tizzie caves, so i go there to buff him and hes wielding a bibs. Need i tell you i ran to the bank and got this thing and gave it to him (looks great on a warrior with a full set of crafted). This thing makes an exe axe look like a fork, i was scared when i saw the giants wielding them. Well just my thoughts, stats arent that bad and im still wearing a bcp for the looks so you could bet if i ever start a warrior ill be getting one of these.
#Anonymous, Posted: May 03 2001 at 1:25 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) If you are on the Fennin Ro server and want to sell one of these send me an email
Tis a nice axe indeed
# Apr 03 2001 at 9:57 AM Rating: Default
I was given this fine weapon as a gift from a guildie when i was but 10. I have used this axe since then up to my current level of 16. I am asked without fail each time I group with strangers as to what it is and could they look at it. The menacing look combined with the translucent blade and glowing effect from the lightsource make it special. The stats are admirable although not fantastic. I can hit consistently for 28-30 damage and have average crits of 55-60. My highest crit with this axe was a 95 which pissed of the mob so much that I died for it. A warrior 6 levels higher than I could not taunt it off me (the mob was at least 6 levels higher as well ). I am curious to see what damage this does with the damage cap removed once I hit lvl 20. Worth 1k? probably not on the open market but to someone who just has to have the coolest looking axe in the neighborhood it might be. I think the nicest part of the axe besides the look is the weight. Coming at only 4 it is easier on the arms and makes up for the outrageous weight of my Straw Spun Belt.
looks very nice
# Feb 02 2001 at 10:43 PM Rating: Default
saw a dark elf yesterday with one of these, looks the way a 2 handed axe should - big, menacing, and ready to cleave some poor fool in two. good job Verant :)
1kpp is about right
# Jan 18 2001 at 8:55 PM Rating: Default
I bought mine for 800pp on The Rathe, and i'm constantly asked and looked at when it is equipped. More than that is its weight! Look its only 4! I can hack stuff all day with this. Weighs less that a Yak which is 1 handed. It also acts as a Greater Lightstone. 5 stamina means more Hit Points as well. It doesn't proc or have outrageous stats, but the Look and the Weight make up for it. I will definatly be increasing my 2hs skills with this beautiful weapon for a long while.

This axe is incredible...Beats a Runic Carver and looks much cooler!
# Dec 28 2000 at 4:08 AM Rating: Default
why in the world is this item 1k? its basically a runic carver with stamina. it better look like a exe axe / jade reaver because its stats certainly are not worth 1k.
RE: 1kpp?
# Jan 04 2001 at 6:40 PM Rating: Default
I sold one for that once and posted that price. It is ridiculous but when people see pretty things from Velious sometimes they want them no matter what the price. And it is a very nice looking weapon. Plus I believe it weighs much less than Runic Carver. But Im sure given time that price will be cut in half.
RE: 1kpp?
# Mar 30 2001 at 9:11 AM Rating: Default
not 1kpp sorry. Same stats as runic, 5 Stanima added I've had 5 of them. More like 350-500. Runic is 150 so it seems fair for a better looking item to be twice the price or three times, not close to 7 times.

(And for you people who think you're smart by trying to contradict me, YES I had teh 5 of them over a period of time NOT all at once. So keep the LORE comments to yourself : ) )
RE: 1kpp?
# Jan 03 2001 at 9:07 PM Rating: Default
Could have been sold to him/her though a guildy or firend. Normally they will give you a discounted price.
RE: 1kpp?
# Jan 05 2001 at 8:36 PM Rating: Default
if you have ever seen this axe then youd know why people pay that much-it is by far the most attractive 2 handed axe ive seen in the game.
i mean come on its transparent so you never have a bad side.people stop me all day when i equip it to find out what it is and the stats-mind you i didnt pay more than 3 hugs and a kneel for mine im sure i wont have a problem getting 1k or more for it.its kinda like paying all that money for a pair of jeans just cos they have some label on them-its silly but it happens every day.
RE: 1kpp?
# Jan 27 2001 at 11:59 PM Rating: Default
its not a designer axe for god's sake. its a weapon. same stats as carver but couple improvments. i would say that it could go for under 1K but over 500pp. i dont care i still like my blade of xalgoz better, and i got it for 500pp. what a steal.
RE: 1kpp?
# Feb 20 2001 at 10:28 PM Rating: Default
like i said its silly-i know.hell even this site has a "fashion table" on it.mabey even one day in norrath wearing less armor will be considered more attractive but i could give a rats ****** have used this weapon for more than 8 levels and am still satisfied with it-and would be even if it looked liked that very same rats ********** being that if one of those guys who hails me and sais "hey what axe is that?" is willing to pay 1k for it cos it makes them look cooler then so be it,cos the whole world looks better when ive got 1k in me pocket!
