Nice sword .............When it Proc's
# Jul 24 2003 at 2:36 PM Rating: Decent
i was lucky enough to be given one of these buy a guildy (many thanks)and have found it to be very good in combat even if i did get it at lvl 37ish and now at 41 still finding it great fun to use but unfortunaly not lucky enough to have it proc for me :(,but with 225str as a troll with all avalible str spells on im hitting for around 130 max on one hit ! least to say you can hit for something in the region of 200hps with double att and thats without slam dam fine weapon and will be better when it proc's
not a bad weapon

Not saying this weapon is good , but im a 55 war with 167 DEX and it procs a lot for me especially when i got Boon of Garou, but i usually just use this weapon to practice 2h slashing, but its pretty good when it procs a bunch of times especially when it absorbs the blows. Just saying if it keeps procing and think at lvl 65 when maybe you have even maxed DEX you would be invincible with this weapon.

I dont think this would be much help to you guys, but somehow i managed to get the sword for only 50pp .. didn't have to bargain at all. And then i see you guys goin off about selling it for 18k..that just seems outrageous. Oh well.
High Dex is the key

Just got this tonight in the castle in Kael. Procs multiple times per fight with a dex of 140. Only proced once per fight with dex of 100. Lasts about 10 minutes if not taking damage. Takes a bunch of hits off the light blues in Kael but only a few hits off the dark blues, before getting used up. Was pretty useful overall. Nice damage, very fast with haste. Strength of Earth and Storm Strength overwrite it, but not Strength of the Kunzar (cobalt boots). Only experienced about a 19 AGI drop and about 38 STR bonus.

Buddy's SK had it start to proc at 45.
Good Buy?

Jus boought this sword off a player trader in bazaar for 1k pp, wonder if it is a good buy. for my 48 sk, the proc raise my str to 165 with syphon str. However, the damage output seems to be maximum of 90 only. BTW, for the stats, i think 1 kpp is a real deal. What say you ??

This sword
# Sep 03 2002 at 12:21 PM Rating: Decent
This sword is very useful when used as the MA or even SA. It can save a lot of healing on the clerics part if it procs often enough.

The problem is, when fighting tough mobs, only one hit will take away the proc, and bye bye str boost.

Also, with a str boost from shammy, I know the rampage doesn't stick. Kinda silly, the damage absorbtion should still work IMHO. For all you SK's, it DOES stack with Siphon Str. Just ask the buffer in group not to str boost you.

The damage is generally good, I've hit in the 130 range with it with str about 190.

Oh yeah, another silly thing, you can still be stunned while immune to damage. :P

All in all I really like this sword and use it quite often. I switch between this, Throneblade of Ykesha, and Abram's Axe of the Stoic, depending on my roll in the group. I only use Abram's when I need the extra resists.

Hope the info helps those that are after this weapon.
Yup it procs like crazy

Well I have a dex of 84 and let me tell you it is very common for it to proc at least 2-3 times per fight.
While the shield is up Im merrily Lifetaping for 75pts :)

very worth it.

I can see this weapon being very useful to an SK. The -20 agi on the proc actually is meaningless because for the moment you won't be taking any damage.

As a rogue I picked up a shadow rager with a similar proc. The effect is nice but I am definitely gonna trade it for a blood point. But for an SK, the momentary relief from damage is enough time to cast all sorts of spells.

So I think absorb damage procs are more useful than lifetap procs for hybrids since SKs can already lifetap, and for more. Simply using this weapon would be great for soloing, since it would give the opportunity to cast your spells and would save you some life.

Yes, I know you can still be stunned with magic skin on but if you don't like that play an ogre.

Does Rampage stack
# Jun 13 2002 at 8:16 AM Rating: Decent
Does Rampage stack with the bard damage absorbtion song? Would be interesting if it did... 50dd absorbed when song is playing then Rampage procs and dependent on level more DD absorbtion. Hmmmm......

Got one of these in Riff House today.

[Effect: Rampage] The proc is interesting. First off you get a "Your spell would not take hold" message if you have another strength buff up (such as that from druid or shaman).

The proc seems to last about as long as the damage absorption, which for a level 40+ means mere seconds at best. But even so, with a high dexterity I could see this thing saving hundreds, even 1000+ hp in a fight. Potentially great for duels.

The -20 hit to agility means a reduction in AC of about 6-8. Not the direction we tanks like to see our AC move, but since you're not taking damage during that time it's really no big deal.

Nice wep

I was wondering if I got a good or bad deal on this when I bought it. Seems like it fell on the good side at 1.5K. I was finally able to break the 100+ hit with this. I know it's not the best out there, but it's better than I've had before.

I am not sure if I like this wep or not, I'm a DE WAR and its' proc boosts me to 189 str but the damage it does is rarely over 105. Crits don't seem to be coming any more often, and the 80pt damage soaker or whatever it is seems sort of insignificant. My dex is only 84 though so maybe I'll look to trade some of my str gear for equivilent ac dex gear...Definately worth 5k or so on Zeb.
this sword tries to proc alot
# Oct 03 2001 at 4:35 PM Rating: Default
My poor lil pally lvl 42 with dex 86 gets at least four attempts at a proc for this sword if not more. Usually gets a your will is insufficient to command this weapon on the first swing. I was in Lguk fighting in assassin supplier room and tanking i decided to count 1 right off the bat...and got more too...lost count over 10...had to run to save chanter and cleric from supplier pop...ended up dying when a runner pulled the wiz's off the ledge. But i know this thing procs like a noob begging for plat...LOL
RE: this sword tries to proc alot
# Dec 15 2002 at 6:14 PM Rating: Good
The insufficient will is when your not high enough lvl. How do you get this at the beigning of a fight, then a few procs unless you ding 45 in the middle of a fight alot?

I got this sword on a guild raid and thought its okay but not anything great. Then I went to Guk to camp for a ghoulbane for my SK epic. Even with dex only in the 90's it procs enough that only the shin lord could hurt me. Finished nearly every other fight with more hps than I started thanks to lifetap spells (easy to cast when protected). Then I went on a guild raid to Fear. Every once in a while I would cast to close together and get aggro. Usually only got hit twice before aggro was back on Main tank. Rune usually held up through both hits. Means the druid in my group never had to heal me. I still carry other weapons for different occasions but this one gets pulled out alot.

Nice Sword

I got one of these for my slightly twinked Dark Elf SK who is currently fighting in Highkeep beating down on the Goblins (Tunare Server). Being a Dark Elf, his strength is a weak 117 with this sword equipped. However he does hit in the high 50s and 60s with his best double attack being 73,72. The delay is a bit long, BUT pair this up with an FBSS and even the level 16 enchanter haste spell....this sucker becomes 27dmg 28dly and he totally beats down anything in his way. Heck, he soloed the Lookout Room at level 22 while waiting for a spot to open in the Guard Room hehe. This sword is awesome at this low level, and can't wait to see how it performs when he gets higher and it procs combined with the FBSS and higher level enchanter haste. =)

Yes, you can waste the fang by turning it in and getting the belt. If you turn it into Reijav the Battle?(or Storm)rager, you will get the sword. I haven't heard this, I have done many times. He is in the Frostgiant hall, second entrance, back room. Same guy that drops the sword.

The Blizzent Fang Quest will get you a Dragonhide Belt, not this sword
# Jun 10 2001 at 12:53 PM Rating: Default
You can turn in Blizzent's fang to Reijav in Kael, and you will get the sword. I have done it many times and sold the sword, for nowhere near 18000p. It's tuff to sell them for 4k anymore :( Good hunting, Blizzant can be a bit hard to find

I am a 45 warrior and i recently got this item during a Kael raid. I definately taunt better and do more damge with dual wield using a wurmslayer. The shield effect on this is cool, but if i can't taunt the MOB of a ranger or rogue, then it is worthless.

I ask this: Should I keep this weapon or sell.

Selling it would get me some armor I have been after and raise my AC. And also anyone know a reasonable price for this? I know it says 18k but that seems over the top considering it wasn't that difficult to get and Kael raids are pretty common, at least on MM.
