my 21 ranger has this an has had it scince level one, this is a awsome sword for the price an i hit with 114 str max with that str was...58 i think i usually have str buffs that get me up to 134 or somthig around that aan i hit for 60 and 66 i some times get double attacks. my best double attack was 61,57...50 47. it was great.i just like to mess around with 2hs my druid 41 has all his fighting skills maxed except 2hs. when my ranger isnt using the 2hs i pull out my forstbringer an centi ls dawg!
Fine weapon

Both my 47 Ranger and 30 Paladin have this weapon. And both are kicking serious bootay with them. The WIS and mana are the icing on the cake. I concur with everyone here who stated that this weapon + Instrument of Nife = Unrest ownage. Maybe not quite at level 30, but soon enough. :)

I know what a lot of you must be thinking. Why should rangers bother with 2HS weapons when they can dual wield so well? My answer... versatility. Maybe it's the obsessive-compulsiveness in me, but I for one would like to be able to use any weapon that says RNG in its class list to maximum effect. To be fair, I *usually* dual wield, but that didn't stop me from getting 2HS and 2HB to 200. Recently I took the grand tour of Permafrost just for s***ts and giggles, using my ACGS to rip those gobbies to shreds. I didn't get a lick of XP, but I got plenty of looties. Besides, being a one-man wrecking crew in a dungeon that used to give me fits is one of the joys of EverQuest.

No one is saying this is the end-all be-all of 2HS weapons. It's awesome for paladins, great for rangers, very good for SKs and warriors too. And that's good enough for me.

After reading all the post here about price, I feel lucky that I got mine for 200pp outside of Freeport. Somebody who obviously didn't know what he had sold it to me. On the flip side, I strongly suggest practicing both 1hs and 2hs as my 13 pally had not touched a 2hs weapon until now. I am paying for it with no skill for the moment.

Anyway, when it does hit for me, it's doing around 30-35 damage, and that's considering my low skill level and average str (around 100).

I never seem to have time to get items for my pally with my 38 wiz.

Just my thoughts.

If i am not mistaken the damage cap till lvl 20 is 35 dmg even if you have 255 str. So when ye hit it this thing will be hitting ALOT harder =)

#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 02 2002 at 8:54 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i dought that! my ranger 21 is hitting for 60's and 50's with a str of not even 150!

AGCS is nice but.. argent def and avger are better.. all but the wisdom/mana part
#Anonymous, Posted: Jul 20 2002 at 6:26 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You ******. This will out damage a AD anyday. AD has a big damage bonus and 3 more base damage but this is quicker and it will out damage it. I dont see why you question it or even USING A ARGENT DEFENDER AT LEVEL 52. Check out my magelo profile while I'm level 53.

It DOES say Argent DEFENDER dumbass not the protector. Defender is crap compared to protector or ACGS for that matter. Can't you read before you flame someone on something you didnt even look at? There's one born every minute...
not jus pallies
# Jun 30 2002 at 2:11 AM Rating: Decent
This weap isnt jus mainly good for pallies , I just bought one for my ranger to get his skill maxed and you would too for 400pp!!! I jus got and skill is currently 20 and i hit max for 67 with 161str and the +15 wis makes it so jus jus not good for paladins but rangers also!

Arbitor's for a FBSS? NO WAY!
# Jun 20 2002 at 9:21 AM Rating: Excellent
I have to tell a funny story about this sword. I agree it is a fine sword. The other day I was sitting in Unrest and a person (i will not mention the idiots name) did a equipment search on me. Told me he had a 4k weapon to trade me for my Flowing Black Silk Sash (FBSS) I asked what was it? He showed me a Arbitors Combine Great Sword. I about fell out of my chair! I asked if that was a joke? He said "no" he sells them all the time for 3kpp - 5kpp. Oh he also was gracious enought to offer me a Spider Fur Belt so I didn't have a bare slot. I told him to get lost. Maybe those players that buy this sword for 5kpp would also be interested in the swamp land I have for sale in Northern Ro Desert.

I ran into a guy last night that wanted 2k for this. I said "yeah, right" then I said it was selling for 500 back in Jan '01. He didnt believe me. 2k my hairy dwarven butt.

Used it from level 35 to 40... till I upgraded to a 30damage 36delay lance...... but I didnt pay 8000pp for the ACG, i paid 2k for it about 4 months ago in cazic thule. Just the delay on it is HORRIBLE... have at least an FBSS with this... helps on waiting for you to swing :) While the lance cost 6000pp more, its delay is almost a whole second faster.. while thats not much... battles are not as short as 1sec... it really adds up after the battles... 21% haste with fbss, 21% haste with Valor of Marr?, then the low delay of weapons... i think in the high end game its all about speed... (ie, haste, damage/delay ratio)

Firstly...I'd like to say I've owned this sword for quite some time...and it's never once let me down. Great sword, it is. Last night, me and my 53 shammy friend were campin the queen in CC. He buffed me up to 255 str (Shammies are so cool!) and I was hitting frequently for 74-100+. My max hit last night was 139. BTW..I got this for 1500 on E-Marr, though it's worth around try and look for the 1500 price first if you can..but be willing to pay 2k for it, if necessary.

Great sword...I recommend to any paladin.

Oh..fergot to add something real quicklike. For those paladins that are suffering from finding a group like alot of paladins do. If you've got this sword and Instrument of Nife...dude..go solo in BW in between Skyfire zone and DL. Solo greater spurbones/plaguebone skellies. Plaguebones are still light blue to me at 48, and the greater spurbones are deep blue to me..and I have successfully tore them blasted skellies up nice with ACGS/Instrument of Nife combo...very nice... Just a tip...or just group in KC..haha

While I agree that this is an awsome weapon I disagreed with the level at witch you got Instrument of Nife. I believe it is a 30th level least for me it was.

Finally got mine a few days ago. Incredible weapon, if I say so myself. For those who might be wondering, the damage bonus on it is 18.

Using this in conjunction with my FBSS and the new Luclin spell "Valor of Marr," I can solo Guard Kroon in Freeport (cons blue to me at 51) without using "Lay Hands," something I wouldn't have dreamt of last week :). I'm hitting for 128 max with a strength of 147 (2H Slashing skill is at 201 now). Throw in the +15 WIS, and this becomes a VERY nice weapon for pallies. Cast "Instrument of Nife" (a 49th level Luclin spell that makes a pally's weapon proc a 243 point DD vs. undead) in conjunction with an Arbitor's, and you'll utterly devastate Unrest (as I discovered last night) :).

Damage bonus is dependant on your level 51+. It only shows what it is for YOU. If someone level 5 looks at the weapon stats in their window, it will not show damage bonus 18.
RE: This is what I use
# Nov 08 2002 at 9:54 AM Rating: Decent
lvl 51+? my monk (lvl 33) has a dmg bonus of 2 on a goranga spiked club and master wu's trance stick and a dmg bonus of 3 on baton of faith. i started getting damage bonuses at lvl 30 and it has gone up per lvl and also i noticed that weapons with higher delay have higher dmg bonuses.

Which is better?

Which is better?

Arbitors great sword, Mithril 2hs, or a ghoulbane and Marr's Promise?

I'd say Arbitor's is easily better than the mith. After you figure in the haste for the mith, they have similar ratio's, and then you have the extra 15 WIS and 25 mana, which is always helpful. Also then you can get a haste item as an easy upgrade, making the ACGS truely awesome. On the note of ghoulbane and the marr's promise, you're gonna do a heckuva lot more damage with the ACGS (unless you're fighting undead, in which case I'm not sure), but with the shield you can act as a better meat shield and be able to bash to interupt casters. All depends on whether you want to deal more damage, on the premise that it'll kill the mob faster and therefore expose you to less damage, or if you want to get the better defense and then rely on your group dealing the damage. A lot depends on what you're function is in a group, and how you want to play. I would strongly recomend having both a 2-hand and 1-hand setup, because way late in the game there are many good pally only 1HS weapons (Emerald ******* Sword of Purity, Dawncaller) and then in the 2-hand department you got of course your epic, as well as all the cool velious 2HS weapons (palladius axe of slaughter, etc. etc. etc.) Generally, it's good to keep as many skills as possible up to snuff, because wouldn't it suck if one day you're on an uber raid and you get [uber_weapon_x] and you can't use it because you forgot to practice your weapon skill way back when you were a newbie.

Went on a little bit of a ramble there, just my 2 cents. (Yes! they're cents, not copper pieces!)

I forgot to put this in before, so I'll say it now because I can't think of a better place to put it: Buy yourself a 2hs, and also get a ghoulbane from the freaking quest! It's not that hard if you got a good buddy who can port (and kill mobs for you if you're too low).
(sorry if this post got to be really way too long)
# Oct 18 2001 at 6:30 PM Rating: Decent
I saw this on Cazic Thule for only 2kpp! I wouldn't buy it though. I would pay 4kpp lowest even if advertized lower, i mean this drops off a level 50 monster.. and for 2kpp?! Thats like twinking. And I hate twinks. I had a BABS given to me, but i still payed 300pp for it on the trade window. I'm level 37 now and still have found my way to be untwinked...
On the bad side, people buying my fine plate armor says its too much... but I made it and suffered all that time that i could have been leveling, not to mention the hundreds of pp used on smithing.
I hit for maximum of 83 with no yaulp or any str buffs on my level 37 paladin... i wonder how much i hit for with this... my str is 132... naked its 85... any chance for hitting 3 digit numbers with this Arbitors weapon?

I got one, level 35 human pally, have hit for 103 with yaulp only (total str 113, I think), my max ever was I think 123 with wolfform, a good str buff, and yaulp. At the time STR was like 175 or so. Hope that helps
This weapon does indeed rock totally. On rallos, where I play, it's a good idea to put your money into weapons and your time into no-drop gear, what with the pks running around. This weapon is easily the most valuable item in my inventory, and it's worth every penny. Traded 3700pp and donal's vambraces for it. Just my 2cp

i know this post is old, and i want all the people who are actually saving up for these to know, i bought mine for 1k and a centi warhammer, and as soon as the trade was complete i saw "WTS Arbitors Combine Greatsword 500pp" and earlier today i saw one listed for like 400, but don't hold your breath on it, those are the only two i have seen for sale in about 3 weeks, so i would buy one at like 600-800 if i was you. anyways cya around

I just picked up this sword for 1600 pp as well, and I must say I am pleased! I am still trying to figure out why the market on bristlebane has been shot straight to hell (prices dropping like mad). I'm also wondering when Paladins start to get damage bonuses, or at least hit for more than twice the base dmg of the weapon...all I can hit for now is in the mid 60's (level 27 with 127 unbuffed str). Appreciate any info! Btw: what kind of 2hand weapon minimum dmg increase are we looking at in Shadow's of Luclin? Think it will be significant?
RE: Awesome sword
# Oct 08 2001 at 9:52 AM Rating: Good
You will notice a jump in damage output once you hit level 30. There is also another cap at 50. As far as 2hs damage increases...the patch as of today raises the damage output of 2hs weapons, but only for 51+ characters. Something to look forward to!
I Just bought one!

A friend gave this to my Level 9 Paladin, said he picked it up cheap. Sorry, not going to say how cheap, but the fella selling it was gutted when he enquired about its value (to late). Anyhow, Should I keep it or trade for a Mith 2-HS / Ry'Gorr armour etc, eg: Items that will benefit a lower level paladin. Is it worth hanging onto ?
RE: Advice Please
# Sep 29 2001 at 12:07 AM Rating: Decent
Hang onto it. I made the mistake of buying Ry'Gorr armor. Really regret it. Wait until you hit 35-40 and group the rygorr orcs. Don't know what kind of armor is good for lowbie pallies, but you should try for fine plate or black alloy (unless your friend can afford your old world quest armor)

At your level this isn't the best weapon but you will be able to take high yellows and reds if you know what you are doing.
