ok i can flame myself. long day at work. sk is on there. but still a useless weapon

good one VI lol another useless stat. all the caster classes that can use this are wis based. (just cause i know someone out there will flame this post saying its good for some skills) if you really want int go with a stein of moggok and some other item. otherwise theres much better items out there that are easier to get than this.

You are correct. Shadowknights use Intelligence to calculate their mana.

#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 29 2001 at 1:58 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This spear is practically useless. Damage delay isn't great and the stats are useless to 3/4 of the listed classes. Shadowknights can use the INT, but don't need it b/c they mainly use 1hs, 2hs, and 1hb (MoSS, Noct Blade...). Shammys and Rangers get no benefit other than the Mana. Warriors who have this should be shot =) If you do this quest...sell the spear. Some lower level Shammy could get some use out of it, That's about it.
I'll take one

Sometimes lacking the people to form groups to get +wis spears with my shaman, and being perpetually broke what with my spell habit to maintain and all, this could be a decent weapon for a teen to 30 shaman. So the delay sux and there is no wis modifier. So what? When you have to solo, better damage is the answer, and frankly, there aren't a whole lot of piercing weapons that a shaman can use that match this for damage that I can aquire by killing something or buying it. And at higher levels with haste effects, the delay drops so you get a better damage dealer. I would take one for my shaman (heh, but not for more than the listed prices here, again being broke all the time). If anyone has one to sell, send a tell to Kathugga or Wotjan on Druzzil Ro.
Shadowknight Weapon
# Jul 17 2001 at 1:03 PM Rating: Excellent it is 2H piercing. With the +5 Int. and +10 mana boost, I would love to have this weapon for my shadowknight. Is it the best weapon? No...but if you have the chance to buy it for 10pp, I would consider that a good deal for a piercer, especially for a Troll or Oger who gets to bash irrespective of the 2H statis.

this quest is to get your faction up with the othmir not for the real reward te quests with real rewards from the othmir are the ones for the shield and the totem and if you are a jeweler maybe the one for the gems.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 14 2001 at 8:03 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I could understand maybe if they made it a rogue weop (sheesh, a backstab at 16 dmg would be horrific) but with the classes as it stand this is pretty sad. Just one less item I'm going to be intentionally questing for.. may run it later whenever I actually hunt cobalt scar and happen to have a couple of bulthur trunks on me.
# Jun 05 2001 at 1:18 PM Rating: Default
Doesn't a BBC have better dam/delay than this? Its like -8 Agi if I remember, but waaaaay easier to get of course. I'm thinking this has to be some kind of joke quest... oh well. Hope someone got a good laugh out of it heheehhehe

The mobs you have to kill just have alot of hp and are dumb, Fear snare beat on til dead joy. The weapon sucks and paladins ******** about it are just as dumb.

Laf! Groups of 50+ in my experience run from the Bulthar like the plauge! (I was in these groups) It is obviously established that this is one of the gayest items/quests out there, but! I just have to put in my 2cp cause this erks me. The first time I went to CS I had a 13/23 6str 25hp sword, and for 2h I had a 24/40 30pt dd sword to goof off with... this.. is 16/46, no proc and useless mods (including sk because no lvl 50+ sk in his right mind would use a 16/46 weapon). With a 56 shaman a 54 enc and me (51 ranger) it took about 10 min and near death to kill a Bulthar.. ALL IT NEEDS NOW is a no drop tag, 1stam and agility, 5hp and 2charm and effect stun on lvl 60! god, I feel much better now, point made.. again.
Good for young shaman

I was offered this for 10 pp the other day, when I was running around with a fishing spear... I did not realise how good it was at that point in time (considering me being level 11). Now I have a fine steal spear, but I will probably buy this if I can find the one who was trying to sell it again.

There are Piercing (1H) and 2HP weapons, but they fall under the same skill area. IOW there is not a "2H Piercing" skill, you get piercing skill learns when using 2HP. the only difference is that you can't have an item in your secondary slot. I used one of these in my teens, it was given to me when I had no other magic weapon. Also I wanted to build up my piercing skills for the epic weapon. It was very slow getting the piercing skills, due to its slow delay. I now use a beetle stinger 8/23 etc, the same damage/delay ratio as the ROS, but now that I strike twice as often the skill learns are easy. Plus, I disrupt casting MOBs much more.. I'd recommend any decent 1HP with speed over this spear.

Actually there is a 1-hand Paladin piercing weapon. The Crystal Grinder is 9/27 with 2ac. My paladin friend borrowed mine for awhile to raise up his skill. He was using it and a shield, so yes, I'm sure it is 1-handed.

#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 15 2001 at 3:40 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I want one fo these! This is the most powerful item in the game!
Its also a drop, off othmir warriors

It also is a drop off the warriors sometimes (possibly shamans too.. never killed)

The funny thing is that sometimes one has a spear equipped and its this, other times they will have the spear but no weapon equipped.

Sells to vendor for like 4 plat.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 05 2001 at 1:31 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) this really sucks, great job VI
Not LORE...

... so it probably isn't intended for another quest. I guess this is someone's idea of a good reward.
