Very cool looking weapon
# Apr 25 2005 at 12:33 PM Rating: Default
Every post below this talks about how cool this weapon looks but none describe. So here goes. It uses original world graphics on a 2hs but its only 1 handed. Its also entirely in black. So having 2 of these in each hand does look very cool. Shame it just doesnt proc very early. Without that proc, it doesn't compare very well to swords from later expansions.

The graphic on the sword looks extremely cool IMHO, but I'm trying to look for something better that has the same graphic. Could i get a few names of weapons that have the same graphic as this but are better than it, perferably a 1 handed slashing wep plz?

Thx =)

PS- I know that A Glowing Balck Sword has the same graphic, but im looking for something better than that as well.
free sword. ty very much

Bought this sword for 100pp today on my SK. It's pretty fun, even though it doesn't proc yet with my FBSS it is the same as a lammy for now...weight doesnt matter my SK has 143 stamina..doesnt drain at all. Can't wait til it procs

THe blade hits with a 20 DD then does 10 dmg for 5 ticks for a total of 50.

So total dmg of the effect is 70dmg
# Aug 30 2002 at 6:36 PM Rating: Default
50dmg is a DoT not a DD
# Aug 23 2002 at 11:46 AM Rating: Decent
yes this does proc quite often but i got a question about total i see 20dd not 50 what is up with 50 where did this come from i am level 49 gnome warrior. hmm maybe after 50th level?????

I dual wield this weapon with a sash of the dragonborn and it procs quite often. Good thing that rangers get Jolt at level 51. I sometimes outdamage the main tank and have to re-jolt to keep agro off, but as jolt is a low mana spell, i don't have a prob with re-jolting and dont usually take alot of hits in group situations where i am assisting a main tank like a good lil ranger. Hey, if i want to solo, I go to DL and summon tons of arrows with a tolan bracer and fill a mob with arrows. <BTW takes about 12 stacks of summoned arrows to kill a ravishing drolvarg in DL with a 52 ranger with 201 archery and a blessed faydark thunderbolt>

lvl for sword

I was carring this on my warrior paired with a CLS and it worked very well, although very heavy it does'nt decrease your fighting ability when your stam bar runs dry, it's a nice fast wep. Intrestingly at lvl 36 or 37 when i got this sword in a trade, I lent it to a couple of friends of mine lvl 53 warriors for a few pulls while I was fighting IG's in a group to see what the proc was like, they could'nt get it to proc in about 10 pulls which seemed strange? Decided to sell after a couple of lvls and got 5k and bought a Ven Axe instead with change left over.)
recomended lvl

what lvl is recomended for this weap?
I like it!

Bought it yesterday for 1k on rodcet. And this boy is a master taunt weapon and proc very frequently. With dex buff was procing every 30 seconds or so. Was grouped with two monks and I was the only one taking hits,and though they were outdamaging me. For a 47 warrior, I give this weapon 2 thumbs up.

Does this act as a blind? As a snare?

ok as a 54 ranger this wep sux delay too great for main hand and ratio too bad for off hand procs are ok when solo but useless and only add aggro if you not main tank and its way too heavy for main hand lupine is better or lammy or defiance
lucky me

o here i am running around in ec and auctioning for some shoulder armor when i see this guy say

/auction wts Black Blade of Tormenting send tell
me with only 1200 pp on me and curiosity hiting my head send him a tell asking him how much he was selling it for he replys back 1k so im like ok hold on going to bank, hehehe needless to say i got this littel sweet deal im dual wilding this sword on primary with a glowing black sword with 20 dex the grapics are awsome and yes imho it out damage the lammy the proc is sweet if your stats are at least above 110 and is you have a fbss or some kind of haste items just call your self a meat blender cause you will be so fast and pricing this weapon like there is no tommorow

about the stamiana dont worry about it is you stamina is above 120 cause you wont get tired that much was in a group after i got it and we were pulling non stop just to find out that at the most my sta bar when down 2 bulds after 4 kills so imho this is a great weapon to have
I just got one of these

I have not fully tested this item out. What I have found however is that this wep does a nasty taunt with its proc, which is good when one wants to MT. I however will switch to my Centi LS on guild raids when I def dont want to be MT. I am thinking that the proc is not 200 like ppl say, but more like a total of around 70 or so. but with a venomous axe and this wep you should keep your casters very happy in a group setting.

You're all missing something here

People are complaining about the proc, and how it should do more damage.

The usefulness of this weapon is as a MT weapon. It procs a high-taunt spell often, and is low-delay. Great if you're a warrior trying to keep aggro from those rogues or rangers.

WHich is better for a low level warrior? this or a Wurmslayer?
RE: which
# Feb 05 2002 at 10:20 PM Rating: Default
well if you are 30 below warrior stay with the wurmmy if if you are 30 and above go with this
i personally think wurmy is not a great weapon kills stamina when you miss it hurts cause of the low delay kills stamina again
RE: which
# Jan 11 2002 at 5:41 AM Rating: Decent
This weapon does not proc until you are lvl 46.

It is a nice weapon. I got one in Kael tonight. I will be carrying it in off hand and switching between it and Centi Long Sword depending on situation. WS is still in primary. I think the spell effect is rather blah myself.

When my secoond warrior gets to 46, he'll get this and a yak 1hs to cary for a while.
i have the second one

hehe now i dual weild those swords. i have *almost* no stamina penalties and i proc like a madman;]
weight 10?
# Nov 23 2001 at 2:11 AM Rating: Default
well..i traded it yesterday for silken whip of ensnaring + 350pp ... looks like black 2hs, effect looks nice also
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 17 2001 at 11:15 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) first off before u would even get this weapon u will have to be lev would be pointless to own it before this because it wont proc.
RE: shut up!
# Mar 29 2002 at 11:57 PM Rating: Decent
Well, I'm well beyond "this time" and I dont have over 100 agi, and I assure you, I DON'T suck, I can MT anything that doesn't require defensive just fine. On top of that, 100+ agi has nothing to do with anything, 100+ stamina keeps fatigue from hurting your combat, however.
# Oct 22 2001 at 7:01 PM Rating: Decent
I have this Weapon in my Rogues Off hand and it's not bad will have to ditch it when he gets to 46 but 9/22 isnt bad for a rogue 1hs
Some tested info

Bought this weapon from a friend or mine On tholuxe Paelles for 10k..after dualing this weapon for 5 lvls(46-51)along with a venomous axe I must say I have a little bit of a clue about it heh..
This weapon out taunts lammys by far..On dragon raids and plane raids I can outtaunt MA's 2-5 lvl's higher than myself w/o even trying to..Some reason or another this proc absolutley drives MOB's INSANE... An absolute must have weapon for an primary tank to keep in his ******* for sure.
I tested this weapon in the arena with a friend and yes its 20hp dd but also 50hp DoT in 5 ticks(best he could estimate)
While I am always looking for better(lol that I can camp or afford) this will certainly reamian with me for quite some time

I use this weapon AND a Wurmslayer. I know that goes against conventional wisdom, but with invigor as a hotkey I find that the high DPS logs more damage than a lamentation. The stamana drain is no more than the Wurmslayer alone, and no class is better suited for it than a ranger with invigor to offset the effect in a long fight.
Battle logs hold this to be true.
