Froglok Jin Wizard in one of the disco's side rooms. I farmed about 2000 nodding blue lilies here in old seb so far, and this is the first I've ever seen it drop.

Shieldstorm dropped from a froglok shaman in the secret tunnel right before the lab. You could see the frog holding the weapon. For as long as Ive been killing in Seb (2 years) this is the first time ive seen this.

This weapon is not that great for a warrior because it will not cause all that much agro tho for a ranger this would be a fairley nice 2hs (if they could use it) for lower levels as a warrior you need a faster 2hs or one that has a dd proc no matter how wimpy

I picked mine up in the bazaar for about 75pp at lvl 30 with the express idea of training up 2hs.

The only problem with switching to this is the lack of an 'aggro/taunt proc' which, in some of the more 'happy go lucky' groups can be a little disadvantageous.

However, the stats rock, and it ironically it has the 2nd highest ac of any individual item I own after my BP and arms. This is my 'tank' sword. With the new warrior discs, such as the provoke line, I can now confidently wield this, taking all the extra protection it offers, and still hold sufficient aggro in a typical LDoN fight.

In a large raid this comes more into its own, though the trick is to balance weapons to suit. Taking on Vox for instance, with a MR of 160ish I have used my 2 1hs aggro proc'ers first, with Disc Fearless keeping me there until I've landed a couple of Piques. Once that job is done, switch this out and give the clerics a break when Fearless drops. +5 isn't a massive amount, but it makes a difference, and the extra 28 points of AC (weap + proc) and the agi bonus help in a long fight.

Does anybody know when this procs?

I've had this weapon since I was level 34. I just hit level 50 a few days ago and this thing procs at least twice per fight.
Great sword.

Alright, the thread on this baby is stupid long and all the same (the dam/del ratio sucks, the AC and saves rock). This is a rad sword for pretty much anybody (untwinked), and it's earned it's keep IMHO.

Not sure why anyone thinks this weapon stinks. Play the game without getting money from another player who is helping you out. do not "buy" platinum online( whats up w/ that) and work for it. Kill mobs and sell items, get xp's and advance thru levels without PL. Do the game the way it was wriiten and when you finnaly get the lv and are able to defeat the mob who has it let me know how good the weapon is. Thanks for your time...

I picked this up in Bazaar, for my 2hs right now I use Throneblade of the Yak. Should i switch to shieldstorm since it is faster or should i stick with the Throneblade?
coooool

When I was level 8 a guy walked up to me and handed me one of these and I've had it ever since. I never ever use it since I can duel wield, so if anyone wants to buy it, I'll sell it to the highest bidder on the Tribunal Server, post here and I'll send you a tell sometime.

Usefulness?
# Feb 10 2002 at 1:07 PM Rating: Decent
Well recently got this sword from a friend of mine for my warrior. kind of a worthless proc if it does proc at lvl 50. But hey really nice stats. Really top notch. If it weren't for the stats the sword would be junk.

And I still get a pretty mean amount of taunt factor with this sword even when i'm not taunting. Heavy hits = aggro city. Same with many many lil hits too with duel wield n crap, but hey i like a lil variety from time to time to keep things interesting.
RE: Usefulness?
# Nov 19 2002 at 5:28 PM Rating: Decent
If you consider this sword "junk", then I'll be happy to take any other "junk" you have of this caliber. It only becomes "junk" when you can afford better or get to a level where the proc is lower than what you can cast (paladins). It's funny how so many people who have reached the higher levels in this game consider so many items as junk. Remember way back when Banded Armor was considered UBER? **JUNK** indeed. Guffaw!!!

I was gonna say something smartass .. but I'll just say something obvious.

If you are a " soloing " paladin or <guffaw> warrior, weapons and items like this are pure gold. You use this weapon on low-threat creatures until it procs .. THEN you put it away and use some serious hardware. KONGRATULATIONZ! You've just buffed yourself, ya big dumb warrior ^_^

Now we need a weapon that proc's Spirit of Wolf...

Buffed? You call a low level spell a good buff at higher levels? It won't even stack with any group buffs...

Even though I know it is better to use 1h weapons over 2h weapons. this sword is really only pretty useful to a paladin.
Trade
# Jan 03 2002 at 1:58 AM Rating: Decent
I am a level 38 Pally. I saw this for sale for 2k on Tallon Zek. I currently use a Mithril 2hs. Do you think i should trade 1k and my mithril 2hs for this or wait and save up for an Arbitor's Combine Greatsword?
opinions pls

My wife has a 20 pally. I traded my wurmslayer, which I carried as a spare 1hs, for this weapon (Shieldstorm) and 500plat on Eci server.
My question is...would this be a good blade for a 20 pally, or should she stick with her Nathsar greatsword, which has a better ratio ?
Thanks in advance.

Well as afore mentioned in these previous posts, the shieldstorm makes a great defensive blade, which is a bonus for paladins, but i would probably stick with the nathsars greatsword if you like speedier 2hs.

this has a damage bonus of 13 with the recent patch.
RE: bonus
# Feb 14 2002 at 11:38 PM Rating: Decent
Actually, the damage bonus is dependant on the user's level. Its 13 to you, but it could be 2 to a lvl 28 warrior.
sweet price

i got one of these for 850pp yesterday for my warrior twink ,I think i will keep it for later its a sweet 2hs :)
Look at it this way
# Sep 20 2001 at 12:37 PM Rating: Decent
In regular EXP group if I am not the MT I want a good 2h weapon so I don&#8217;t get the agro. This weapon rocks for just that purpose.

On raids its no doubt a great weapon, 15ac plus saves....
Underestimated
# Sep 09 2001 at 6:03 AM Rating: Good
There are so many good points made about this weapon to whether or not this weapon is good on a regular fighting basis, or just on raids. I have a 38 warrior and I have this weapon and I really like it a lot. The damage dealay ratio isnt that great, but the str and other stat raisers make up for it. Along with the resist and I dont even have to mention the 15AC on it! Now, I do use this as my 2hander until something better comes along that I can get on a loot or afford to buy, but with all the stats it is a crazy little weapon and I think it really doesnt get the appreciation it deserves. I think it has value outside the resist raids, the AC and stats raisers alone make worth having it in a fight. We all have our own opinions, but I personally think it is a weapon of choice :)
I dont understand
# Sep 04 2001 at 8:41 AM Rating: Default
Why does it seem that people are judging this weapon by its proc? If it did not proc, would you not get it?
With the stats attached to this thing, especially the resists, and the 15ac, why even think about its proc? With the extra agi, you are probably not getting hit as much. Would you like it more if it proc'd a cha buff?
Just enjoy the stats of this thing, and just be glad that Verant was nice enough to put some kind of proc on it.
This is a specific use weapon
# Aug 27 2001 at 12:22 PM Rating: Excellent
Ok thoughts and comments on this. First off, and this will back up what several people have been saying, the damage to delay ratio on this thing sucks. Plain and simple. As for my self as a 47 warrior I am using a Blood Fire in primary hand ( and yes it procs almost every fight ) and a CSS offhand. While the shots are wimpy averaging in the 20-40 range with crits in the low 70's, they more then outshine those rare 130 crits from the shieldstorm. Its a shame that even with Shield storm I still average hits in the 40's range just 1/4 as many as the other pair.

What this sword DOES bring to the table however is a set of resistances and AC that DO certainly have specific uses. In Dragon raids or any major "need a boost to saves" situation, almost everyone sheds thier good armor for resist gear. If they don't they just don't understand the difference between dying from AoE and hanging around long enough to see the end of the fight. I know that in my case I lose 12 AC from removing my 6/65 rings, 18 AC from the hero and rygorr bracers, 5 AC from the neck slot, 6 AC from face slot, str and HP from ear slots etc... you get the picture .. to throw on BD bracers and earrings and resist rings etc. Switching weapons decreases my dmg output, but my job isn't really to kill, its to hang out long enough to make sure the casters don't get killed. The +5 to all stats along with the 15AC is HUGE when dealing with those situations, then add the 15AC Proc and overall you get about 44 total ac being added ( add a few more maybe for the agi ). Will full resist gear, combined with buffs and a bardsong I am well over 220 resist for magic fire and cold. I don't take much AoE dmg or run away from fear.
Plain and simply thats the purpose of this weapon. Ask those players who go on the raids and you will always hear that AC is king, but there are times when resistance is king. Make it a part of your resist set but don't use it for a dmg weapon.
