Just finished evolving mine, thought I would state how long it took. When I got it, I had just hit lvl 66 and had 79 AA's. It finished at 80% into 71 with 162 AA's. (8 of those were from dain runs and didn't move the sword.) I looted it on July 6th, and it wrapped on July 30th. I didn't log played hours though. I just armed it as soon as I got it, and it stayed in my primary hand the whole time.

Equppied this in the off-hand of my 69 warrior buffed to about 11.5K HP/1870 AC and took it to kill bats in the Forgotten Halls. I was getting at 1% item xp per single DB kill. If my Truncheon of Doom proc'ed by the time the mob was at 85% health then I was able to bandolier to the evolving blade and still get the 1% item xp per kill, and I could finish the fight without heal potions or discs. If the basher did not proc by 85% then I switched to the blades anyway to make sure I got the item XP and just relied on potions.

In my main hand I was using Dark Whisperer augged with Ternsmochin Heartwood. I used Healing Will Discipline and Stonewall Discipline as they became available. I also burned through quite a few Damage Shield and Haste potions. Item XP seemed to move reasonably well.

No Bandolier, plzkthx

Biggest nuisance of this sword is that using the bandolier messes up the exping. By this I mean, I use the bandolier for ghetto bashing with an FB3 shield. I have found, even if I keep this sword in my FBash bandolier, the sword does not retain the experience. I fought for over a week in WoS, MPG and other decent exp zones and only gained 1 or 2% exp.

I have since gone to GE soloing (with 73 SHM out of group) and my exp is actually showing up, because I am not switching to my FBash Bandolier.

Just a little note to those frustrated, trying to lvl this sword.

I took this sword at level 1 to Coruthus Creep and used the Transmogrifer (xp transfer device for evolving items). It capped the amount I could give to the sword at level 2 with 0%. I was using the Arcstone cloak at level 3, with 75% compatibility. Sword ended up level 2 and cloak was only down 20% (level 2 with 80%).

evolving items suck. even after all the work you put into leveling it. the finish product still sucks. not worth any pp
Evolving XP

Ok im gonna tell you how to lvl your evolving weapon (unless things changed since TSS came out). I had A Blade of the Once Bitten on my zerker, he was lvl 56-58ish i dont remember exacty but the mobs were dark blue. I was in The Grey It seemed to have have an xp bonus they never removed cuz when i went back after they added the new hot zones (Velketors was one of these new hot zones i remember)the xp there went to crap. So you probably need an xp bonus zone for best results, not sure tho. I am sure however there was a huge difference in dark and light blue mobs. I got 1% every 2 darks and 1% from every 4-5 light bl mobs.
Anyways heres how i did it.... You need soloable mobs that flee at low hp and a melee toon that can snare SK, ranger, zerker. I would have my Edge of Envelopement equiped and would pull a shissar to the side and proceed to beat the crap out of it untill it started to flee at 10% or 15% then snare It. (You can even beat on it till 5% or lower just dont kill it yet). Then id switch to my Blade of the Once Bitten. Id have a timer and watch for 30 secs to go by then finish off the mob with the evolving sword. Thats it.
I got 1% every 2 kills, sometimes 3 kills. The point is... as long as you wait over 30 secs before you finish off the mob after equiping it, the weapon will get all the xp. Or at least would get all the xp when i did this. I havent tried it lately as i usually play my non melee toons now. And also note the xp gained by this sword and the one i used may not be the same.
Thought I should state the reason I used the EoE instead of the BotOB incase it isnt clear to someone. Simply put, the dmg/dly on the BotOB just flat out sucks even at higher lvls. I could kill things way faster and take far less damage as a result by using EoE untill the mob started to run.

Xp'n a Evolving Item
# Aug 16 2006 at 8:20 AM Rating: Decent
I find that the best xp I've recieved for this item has been in LDONS
I did the GE solo and found it takes longer there.

I think the xp is based on number of kills not the value of the xp.
Ldons let you kill 50 mobs in less then an hour

I recieved 20% in an hour and a half in everfrost yesterday. Pretty Sick..

Check it out

See my reply on the final version of this for answers to some of these questions? BTW, evolving items get XP like we do now. Just fight as hard as you can in a group. Primary/Offhand makes no difference. However, the game IS smart enough to know that you switched weapons (aka bandolier) in the middle of the battle. Not sure HOW it knows, but it knows... you have to use it the whole time you fight or it gets no XP far as I can tell.


PS - The sword is VERY rare - spent 30 hours killing that bugger and his 18 min PH for 1 drop. Dats a LOT of necklaces... BTW, he never dropped a 69 rune for us, and only dropped 3-4 runes the whole time, so its an inefficient way to get runes.

No Melee Damage needed.

Was helping a Shm and Dru kill mobs in the Accursed Nest for Drake Scales.

They where Root and Rotting. I shot arrows, keeping this equiped in my off hand. I was getting 1% per 1 - 2 kills.

Been leveling the sword in Veksar myself, and 3 times now it has crashed the zone upon evolving!
# Jan 05 2006 at 11:09 AM Rating: Decent
I would just like to dispell a few misconceptions. Following the advice of some of these posts, I (70 warrior) went to Grieg's End, sword in hand. After about an hour testing different weapon setups, making sure I killed the mobs with the blade, not using the blade until under 10%, etc etc, I came to the conclusion that:

It doesn't matter how much damage you do with it, as long as it is equipped before 30%~ health approx. I am using my 2.0 in my primary with the evolver in my offhand and it is getting the same amount of exp per kill as it does if I only use the evolver with a shield. You do not need to get the killshot with the evolver.

Please note this is only considering the situation from a soloing standpoint. I do not know how group damage affects it - you may or may not need to get the killshot in a group.

Other than that, god this is going to take awhile to fully evolve for my ranger! If you want to level one of these, head to a solo spot, bring some haste/healing potions, and a good book ...

I concur, I have leveled this sword the entire way through. All you have to do is have it equiped. So put your best dps weapon in main hand. As far as grps go, it is painfully slow, I wouldnt even bother worrying about it if you are grouped, its not worth the trouble. Just solo, if you cant solo, then I guess you in for a very very long haul.
# Dec 29 2005 at 8:58 AM Rating: Decent
been leveling this sword in Veksar at the Feral Lord camp, seems to be going quite fast. Also I believe it's leveling is based on how much damage it does on each mob, if you secondary weapon is putting out more DPS than this sword it doesn't level as fast. Been using BA Rapier in off-hand rather than BoC or SBoD. 10pct every 90min or so.

Just started evolving this blade in Dranik's Scar. Killing light blue Ukuns and Kyvs. I use it in my main hand the entire fight but at about 20% health when the mob runs I take off my offhand blade (Acrylia Handled Broadsword) and just kill with the evolving blade. The result is I get 1% for every 2 kills. If I use both weapons to finish the mob it takes 4 mobs to get 1%. As a 66 ranger (no Time gear) I can basically solo with little or no down-time, evlove the weapon and get a little exp while doing it. I havent reached level 2 on the blade yet so im hoping the ratio stays the same for the next levels.

If your not in a raiding guild CAMP THIS MOB. Warriors get thisa weapon. DPS classes have so many options to them. This weapon parses out better than the War epic 1.5. Not including the +8% slashing and strike through. Its more DPS than a fleshbiter. Check the stats. And it looks Wicked cool.

Its attunable and sells for 2.5 million when fully done. Takes approximately 35 hours of straight xping in Griegs end. Nice time to meet new players as you power level them. Kills the boredom. Personally they should up the drop rate and make it NO DROP. If you don't level something like this your self you do not DESERVE IT.

# Jan 01 2006 at 1:59 PM Rating: Default
Show me a weapon this nice for a ranger? I really don't see how a warrior deserves this or should want this more than any other class that can get it.

Overall it's a nice weapon for any melee class on the use list.

Yes, but it has a big aggro proc, which is why Warriors should be rushing to get this. This is a totally awesome Warrior weapon for the difficulty of getting it.
# Dec 29 2005 at 5:54 PM Rating: Default
Thanks for the sentiments of not deserving things you don't do yourself... once I get back on I guess I have to knock out some AA exp while leveling this biotch (once i get one)
# Dec 05 2005 at 6:08 AM Rating: Default
This is a very nice weapon on the final result no doubt , but my problem is people are pricing it at lvl 1 for the final result.
On cazic this is 350k in bazaar (which is rediculous for anything at all, just making Belrion and ige and eq plat rich) anyway, I equate this to selling me a pile of lumber for the price of a nicely built mansion in beverly hills.

Just my opinion, so pls save your time flaming me about "go farm it yourself then" cause you will jsut be missing the point of my post.
