Nice graphic
# Apr 10 2003 at 8:17 AM Rating: Decent
A cool looking silver/white blade with a golden hilt, this sword stands out. Not as pretty as the Bone Handled Scimitar but still looks nice, and for 40pp at the Bazaar the warsword was well worth it. I use it on the off hand for my 30s ranger, Centi SS on the primary.

the first 150pp i made with my forggie warrior i used to buy a black enamled mace (30pp) a blade of xag... something (23/40,2hs 50pp)and a velium warsword...... 50pp.... my god i love the bazaar.
velium short blade?

I may be missing something but a Velium Short Blade has the exact same ratio, effect:shards of vellium and only costs about 300p on my server.

Velium Short Blade > Velium Warsword

but thats just my opinion
RE: velium short blade?
# Jun 16 2002 at 2:49 PM Rating: Decent
And the Velium Short Blade weighs 0.1 as opposed to 2.5, AND has 5 save vs magic and cold.

I have no idea why people would pay more for Veluim Warsword, unless they don't know their options

maybe cz they like grahpix?? i dunno but the graphic on short blade is dull and boring
its worth crap!

If you want one of these so bad just get a slime coated harpoon 10/25 +5 wis +10 mana War,Sha,Rog, can go in primary or ranged! And it is only 1k! and when u done u can hand it down to ur lil rogue twink for a good backstabber or to ur shaman for a good range item! Whatever the situation this item is worth 1-1.5k!

...Moron? Yes.

Besides making barely any sense, the Velium Warsword is a superb weapon, even into the 40's and 50's. People who have no life who focus on spending days and days, and months and months, questing for a weapon with 2 better delay, etc., really need to grasp hold of the game's purpose.

The game's meant to be fun, not to be obsessed over. The new players will be impressed if you're only semi-twinked, dont' go overboard. I almost vomit when I see someone like you flaunting your items that you worked for longer than it takes to earn your driver's license.

thinking about twinking an erudite pallie w/ ro/ shield or cgs or cds....but i still can't decide what weapon to give him...this one seems good...but expensive...maybe ghoulbane (at least i can do the quest)... as for 2hs....not a master of the subject...

erudites would make good paladins...imho...if they had stuff like full ro...tho they don't have many excelling there's that one sheild from the guy for the FA is an erudite...

i guess this would be a fairly "uber" pallie twink item...but not at higher levels imho
RE: Paladin?
# Aug 23 2001 at 9:59 AM Rating: Decent
Ghoulbane actually has a better dmg/dly ratio than this. The GB quest is not at all hard to do, though it is time-consuming, or alternatively you can buy a GB for like 600pp. Hmm, do I want the sword that has a better ratio and procs up to 150 damage on Undead and costs 600pp, or do I want the sword with the weaker ratio, no proc, and costs over 1000pp?

What you are paying for with a VW is the "status" of wielding a weapon from Dragon Necropolis. Also you are paying for the fact that a VW is usable by many classes (as opposed to a pally-only GB). No need to pay extra for either of those things really if you are making a pally.
RE: Paladin?
# Nov 30 2001 at 6:48 AM Rating: Decent
GB is 15/35 (had it for a while) It doesnt look like a twink weapon though, it looks like a stupid 2hs (bronze or something) and it is kinda a symbol of low lvl twink... hehehe... Anyways, multiply 10 by 1.5 to get 15, thats adding 1/2 Multiply 24 x 1.5 and you will get 32, there for this (in sense is a 15/32....) so this is mo better, but... the proc against undead is nice. Big difference here is speed, Pallys need speed in many cases, it has bettter chance for all their stuff to happen, and to make up for misses, and the weight on this is nicer, id take this over GB any day... but like i said, the GB proc which is btw 124/162/196 (every time u jump with ure spell graphics the dmg jumps =) )

Not only is your math wrong, but your logic is flawed as well.

The ratio on a GB *is* better than this sword. I have no idea where your figures came from but they were amusing.

Paladins who rely on speed to taunt a mob are going to be very disappointed. Warriors, monks, and rogues taunt with speed. Hybrids taunt with spells. Paladins who wants to taunt only needs to cast a few stuns and a flash-of-light (and a few GB procs don't hurt our taunting efforts).

If you care about looks, this weapon has a plain graphic anyway. Not much more destinct than the GB.

If you care about seeing damage spam, then feel free to play a different class. Do not use this reasoning to overpay for this weapon. Paladins should already be used to seeing very little spam coming from their sword. We do damage slowly, in BIG chunks. Guess who the paladin is below:

Rob pierces for 12
Moe crushes for 9
Rob pierces for 10
Rob pierces for 6
Moe crushes for 13
Moe crushes for 16
Rob pierces for 12
Moe crushes for 10
Moe kicks for 22
Rob pierces for 12
Paul slashes for 102
Paul slashes for 89
Rob pierces for 7
Moe crushes for 11
Rob pierces for 10

Yes, the weight is low. This is the only advantage. Although this will benefit sissy little rangers more than a strong paladin.

For paladins => ghoulbane
For rangers => velium warsword

THis is not that hard to figure out ...

Yak - 8/24 1kpp - forget the DD any good warrior knows not to depend on a proc. With any haste the VW will outdamage a Yak w/procs anyday. This is pretty easy to farm too, a tank and a caster can do the Lord ez.

Crystallized sword - 11/29 500-600pp - half a second slower and again, ez to farm. I do the queen room solo, these things drop like rusty weapons in CB.

Cane of the Tranquil - 11/25 1k-1500pp - very nice weapon, but again, this can be farmed by just about anyone over 50 and VERY easiy to do with a couple of friends.

Velium Warsword - 10/24 1500pp - uncommon drop in Dragon Necropolis. Good luck even getting to the zone without a strong group. Just to get across Siren's Grotto you will need a very hi level druid/wizard to evac/succor you across the zone. Thay you have to make it across Western Waste AND kill rat men in DN. You are going to need AT LEAST 1 group of 50+ to hunt in DN. THATS WHY ITS EXPENSIVE!!! You can't farm any of the good velium weapons. Unless you consider getting a few groups of 55-60 killing everything in sight to get to the boss mob farming, you arent going to be seeing a lot of these in EC.

k, jus sayin, if yer on a server like xegony, then everythings cheap (oldest server cept test), velium warswords are like 500-1k, even the ones like a light/heavy velium warsword, course the exquisite, all exquisite, velium weps are worth 22k about, but thats like 11/18, really uber, and btw, this sword drops off a bunch of things on velious, not just DN, course you can just go on a raid and get all the good loot there, i'm sure a bunch of these rot from all the other uber-ific loot, jus sayin, these are cheap, not the greatest 1hs, but an ok wep for people that cant afford much better, i'd prefer Centi LS or lammy, nice weps, but it's about how much cash ya got!
# Jun 17 2001 at 2:39 PM Rating: Default
seen it go for 1k 1500
someone said icetooth for 500to 1k try 100pp to 200pp on my server )
Nice Weapon
# Jun 06 2001 at 6:02 PM Rating: Default
Just bought one of these on Tholuxe Paells for 800pp. I figure shovelling out 800pp for a 10 24 sword is a good deal. A friend of mine spent 1.2k on the same sword.
Dunno what you guys talking about
# May 31 2001 at 3:22 PM Rating: Decent
Man this is an awesome weapon ... 10/24 ... nice .4 ratio .. would spen 3k+ on this item .. Hell look at the green jade broadsword 11/25 and it is 10k

PS anyone got any ideas on what this thing looks like when wielded?
A clue
# May 21 2001 at 10:28 AM Rating: Default
yak 8 dmg 24 delay 1k

velium warsword 10 dmg 24 delay 4k

Crys Short Sword 12 dmg 24 delay 10k to 12k

You see a pattern here yet?

Cane of Tranquil WARRIOR MONK ONLY 11 25 1k to 2k

The Velium Warsword also has a low wt. And drops in DN. It is worth 4k.
RE: A clue
# May 26 2001 at 7:24 AM Rating: Default
This is a great weapon. When combined with a Cane of the Tranquil the dmg output is awesome. My warrior friend got this for 1.5kpp on TM about 2 wks ago.
What does it drop off of?
# May 17 2001 at 10:31 PM Rating: Default
Will someone please post what this drops off of and where so the people who are serious about this, and will go hunt for it can. I am not rich and I do not wish to dump an enormous amount of money on a weapon i can get myself.
RE: What does it drop off of?
# Jun 04 2001 at 3:52 AM Rating: Decent
Picked one up yesterday from a Chetari Guard. Its visible when they have one and looks different to the velium weapons.

#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 25 2001 at 7:02 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I am a Half Elf Bard on Solusek ro server and if anyone runs across it and does not need it or has better i would buy it for a resonable price just give me a tell in the game.Remember Solusek ro server and my name is Babien curently lvl 37 trying to get out of it and really need a hard hiting and fast weapon then what i have now.Thank you for reading it this post.
looks a nice weapon?
# Apr 15 2001 at 5:25 AM Rating: Decent
personally i am usin a cane of the tranquil and a crystal sword this would be a small but nice upgrade i figure i would maybe go to 1k if its in a hard to get to zone besides the fact that players huntin in zones where this could be found can probly loot far better sellable items but for high midlvls this would be a fair investment for a nice damage dealer

if ne1 feels this is not worth it ill take any that are unwanted >8)
Nice Weapon
# Feb 19 2001 at 10:09 PM Rating: Default
Nice weapon either way. Better damage output than a yak so it gets a high rating in my books.
to sum up:
# Feb 19 2001 at 7:45 PM Rating: Default
if some guy feels like dropping 4k on this, big deal, but it certainly isnt worth 4k. if he wants to waste +3k on this, let him, try to stick to the point at hand, general price appears to be 600-1kpp, great ratio, all in all a good buy. but what does it drop off of? cant anybody post useful info instead of complaining? just my 4k cp.
# Feb 10 2001 at 6:34 PM Rating: Decent
oh, and the weight is less too, nice for us low sta/low str wood elf types.
yak is better???
# Feb 10 2001 at 6:32 PM Rating: Decent
what make you think a yak is better? this weopons dam/delay is 25% better than a yaks. dunno bout you, but my yak only procs about 2 times a fight, and gets resisted fairly often. i will take the 25% more base damage over an unpredictable proc.
RE: yak is better???
# May 17 2001 at 2:24 PM Rating: Default
The other person said that this weapon is Better then a Yak not the other way around. Please read next time.

Just curious... anyone seen this weapon weilded? I am curious if it has a similar graphic to the crytaline sword or it has another grapgic all together.

#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 31 2001 at 11:50 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) hello im a newbie and this sword sounds nice is it if it is how much would it cost me to get one?
RE: help me
# Feb 01 2001 at 9:25 PM Rating: Default
Just an estimation, but it might cost about 1000pp. I'm basing this on the Crystallized Sword's (11/29) cost of 1100pp on average on Bristlebane.
RE: help me
# Feb 01 2001 at 10:00 PM Rating: Default
Not 1000pp unless it is extremely dificult to obtain. ALthough since it has not been put in till this late I would say at least 600p it is basically an upgrade from lanseax --> BBrass Kilij --> to Vel War Sword. Pretty nice for working up that twink real quick a pair would cost 1000p if they are a common/slightly common drop.
RE: help me
# Feb 02 2001 at 1:01 AM Rating: Default
looks like a good offhander but what drops it?
Worth more than that...
# Feb 02 2001 at 10:34 AM Rating: Default
It's got a very good ratio, beats a ykesha hands down and looks cool to boot, I'd pay 4k for one, maybe a little more even
RE: Worth more than that...
# Apr 02 2001 at 9:27 AM Rating: Decent
Why do I have the felling that all of the people saying that this is a 2 and 4k weapon have one in the bank that they are not quite sure what to do with it. Lets analyze please: (all prices on Seventh Hammer)

Icetooth Claws 11/29 primary only 400pp
Crystallized Sword 11/29 primary/secondary 500-600pp
SSoY 8/24 procs 75dd primary/secondary 1k (seen it go for 600)

This is a great weapon and I can see it going for 800pp, only because it has not flooded the market... YET.

Now if you wanna spend 2k or more on a 1hs this is where it is at:
Sarnak Skullsplitter
Skill: 1HS Atk Delay: 26
DMG: 12
+8 DR, +8 PR
WT: 4.5
Race: ALL

The dungeon this is found in is a death trap and you will not see this in the EC tunnel any time soon.
Velious has not been out that long to say whether an item is going to flood the market or not outside of Iceclad, EW, CC and GD items. So “YOU” go ahead and spend 4k on this item. Me I will either get it for myself or spend /what /I/ feel is a FAIR price for it. Other than that, 2 Crystallized Swords are doing me just fine.

Peace out and beware of the greedy price mongers while buying THEY are the foulest creatures in the game hands down.

RE: Worth more than that...
# Aug 02 2001 at 8:49 PM Rating: Default
No flame or anything but yes I did get this off the floor of the EC tunnel some nice high lvl was dropping al kinds of nice stuff that day.

P.S. They go common on Inny for about 700pp or so (atleast last week everything drops like 1-5% every day on Inny IMO)
RE: Worth more than that...
# Feb 02 2001 at 7:11 PM Rating: Default
I'm saying Easy 2500 or so. Yaks at 8/24 sale for 1500pp on BB and this beats a yak and this drops in Western Wastes/Necropolis so not super easy to get.

# Feb 05 2001 at 7:14 AM Rating: Default
Um yeah but this weapon does not have the 75 dmg proc that the Ykesha does -- so his estimate is probably accurate.
RE: Worth more than that...
# Mar 06 2001 at 4:30 PM Rating: Default
This thread is crazy! Ice claws sell for 500-1k with better stats.. the only plus to this thing is it can be weilded in either hand.. no proc.. no AC.. no stat increases.. I wouldnt pay any more than 1k for it.. and then Id have to think about it
RE: Worth more than that...
# Feb 20 2001 at 7:18 AM Rating: Default
Take how much the cane of tranquil goes for on your server. 11/25 . Goes for 1.5-3k on Luclin.
No proc on it. This sword is going for around 1.1-2k because it is actually one kickass sword.
RE: Worth more than that...
# Mar 06 2001 at 4:32 PM Rating: Default
yea but the CoT sells for that to monks.. this is a GOOD sword.. but not a 2k sword

4k? Hell no this isn't 4k.
RE: Worth more than that...
# Feb 02 2001 at 5:34 PM Rating: Decent
You are nuts if you are going to pay that much for this weapon. Otherwise I have a nice executioner's hood for 1200pp you might wanna take a look at. Or i could make some banded armor for you at a mere 10pp per AC. Sheesh.
RE: Worth more than that...
# Feb 04 2001 at 4:03 PM Rating: Decent
i guess nobody listens to the guy... i think 4k or so is good also.. banded armor and Ex hoods are far too common bro... people do buy things for the stats are not bad at all
RE: Worth more than that...
# Feb 04 2001 at 5:39 PM Rating: Default
hey! guess what! ykesha procs a 70-90(thats what i heard) dd spell! this sword doesn't! of course a yak sells for much more, when it procs it does great damage, i'd pay approximately 900pp for this, its a great wep and all, but i dont think 4k is right. but hey if you wanna pay 4k for this then great! some guy will walk away with profit of 3100. just my 2cp. i could be wrong...nah.
RE: Worth more than that...
# Feb 20 2001 at 7:19 AM Rating: Default
Yeah, you're wrong. It procs for 75, but once you hit level 45, Yak sucks hard.
RE: Worth more than that...
# Feb 04 2001 at 5:41 PM Rating: Default
heya if this is 2h slash like the guy said, its good, but it sure as hell aint no 4k. silver swift balde = dmg 16 dly 24 2H ~ 7k approx.
RE: Worth more than that...
# Feb 05 2001 at 9:48 AM Rating: Decent
Um, it's primary/secondary, how many 2hs weapons you know of that can go in the off hand?
