You may be thinking of Velium Short "Sword"....this is "Blade"......easy to confuse though.

I searched all of Thurgadin and not one velium short blade, there were tons of velium short swords. Meg Tucter did not have one of these for sale. Did they remove it from vendors or do they just appear randomly on vendors?

I got this for 50pp from somebody emptying bank acount. I asked around about this afterwords, and i only heard good things. i was also told it was great for a ranger of my lvl, and got it for a good price. i was pretty happy with this buy.
good weap

i went to the bazaar and saw one for 90pp, i didn't buy it cause i was waiting to see what the other weaps were doing cause it would spent all my money almost. i left and came back in a couple hrs and it was gone. i checked the others and they were 300 and 400pp which probably went done alot. instead i bough a sarnack skullplitter for 100pp.

i think some people are confusing this with the velium short sword. this sucker is much better and worth a lot more. velium short sword is worth like 50pp. i could be wrong tho...anyone back me up on this?
RE: prices off
# Jul 01 2002 at 5:04 PM Rating: Decent
You are right, Velium Short Sword, like all Velium weapons, is basically magic fine steel with a 12dd proc at level 25.
# Apr 06 2002 at 7:37 PM Rating: Default
when does this proc i got a 17 ranger and it doesnt. please tell!
lvl for proc
# Mar 27 2002 at 12:51 PM Rating: Decent
is this normal shards (lvl25 proc) or the coldain type?
Got mine free
# Jan 31 2002 at 2:55 PM Rating: Default
I was auctioning to buy a 1hs in EC when a druid /t me to come get it for free. That weight is sweet for my "weak" erudite sk. I tried a 13/31 sword for a while (forget the name) but went back to this one. The other was just to slow and when I'm trying to interrupt casters, I want to hit as often as possible while bashing with my shield.
65pp from vendor?
# Jan 29 2002 at 12:56 PM Rating: Default
yup I bought mine for my rogue, for 65pp + some gold from a dubious vendor in eurdin! (guildy found it and GT to guild,,, I was the happy porter to stop buy and pick it up for my alt rogue :)

note to self: check vendor crap for good stuff! sometimes you get lucky.

also found regular dimond on a vendor once to... was about 250pp, but better then buying from players for 300pp (ya I need better cha gear ;)

Finally saved up 100pp, and feeling rich, decided to get my lvl 12 warrior butt to the Bazaar to see if I could find a better 1HS than my Shan'Tok. Nobody seems to use that place for selling yet, but looked around on the vendors to see if there was anything of interest.

Picked up this item for 60pp. Thought it was just a regular Velium Short Sword at first (about the same price from NPCs), but the dmg/dly ratio seemed better, so I nabbed it. Looking at the prices here, I would say it was a good deal -- now to find a better piercing weapon...
RE: look for one from merchants
# Jan 15 2002 at 9:24 AM Rating: Default
Hehe you definately got a better deal than me. I bought mine for 800pp from my guild leader. Of course she is a Rogue so it was understood that I would be robbed. Hehe.
# Nov 12 2001 at 8:46 PM Rating: Default
who cares on the damage of a proc if its a good weapon, granted a high damage proc is good, but any proc will help taunt and aggro the mobs off the casters.

Just my 2cts!
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 11 2001 at 12:07 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I'm not on to often, but I'm always in EC and lookin fer one of these. Trading a whip of strangulation and a bag of nice goodies. Just gimme a tell as Tallicus
Upgrade or no?
# Sep 06 2001 at 5:15 PM Rating: Default
I bought one of these a while back for around 300pp, and then it was only 9/24 and +5 sv magic I belive, good thing they made it better , hehe. I'm wanting to upgrade this to a Glowing Black Sword, I understand the Glowing Black Swords effect is horrid but im only a 35 Ranger and the Glowing Black Swords proc doesnt even start until level 50 I believe, so Is this a good idea or not. And i can just twink a new char with it later, too.

Just to let you know I had a Glowing Black Sword up until level 45 when it procs (not 50, i wish!) They are a nice weapon, and i would definately buy one since you can use it for 10 levels (though in the time from September to now you may be 45). Erollsi Marr prices are 1k - 3k but don't pay 3k because you will not sell it for that much guarenteed. At least on my server. GL to ya and hope the info is of use to someone, if not the original poster.
Same Old 14dd proc
# Aug 22 2001 at 11:41 AM Rating: Default
Proc is the same as any velium weapons...ohwell who needs the proc when you have a 10/24 weapon. A very nice weapon but does not look as good as the warswords. Maybe that's why this weapon only worth 1k. If this weapon had a better graphic, price would skyrock to an end price of 1.5-2k.

Looks is everything in this game. Who cares about killing enemies faster..its all about style =P And if we die early...make sure you die with a great fashion sense...who knows the enemy may be mez by your awesomeness =P

# Jul 10 2001 at 8:31 PM Rating: Default
They made this much better, 10/24 and +5 to both resists now, they may of even upped the proc, i dunno, ill have to check it out tomorrow :)

# Jul 03 2001 at 9:29 PM Rating: Decent

Lame Proc
# Apr 18 2001 at 6:55 PM Rating: Default
12dd proc weapon off of a 45th lvl MoB? Does anyone else think this is weak. An upgrade in the proc would make this a pretty sweet weapon..make it at least 50+ to compare with a SSOY.
RE: Lame Proc
# Jan 10 2005 at 2:16 AM Rating: Default
LOL making it 50 Damage proc would let players solo easier....and we all know how much SOE hates that!!! It would be nice but will never happen. save about 100kp and buy a good weapon in Bazaar (.........) or buy a Fungi Tunic instead (-).(o)
RE: Lame Proc
# Mar 26 2002 at 1:37 AM Rating: Default
Ok, the proc is only 12dd, however it seems to proc on average twice as often as "regular" velium weapons or even the SSoY...oh yeah, it also procs at level 1 (regular veliums start at 25, SSoY has been upped to 37+).
RE: Lame Proc
# Jul 03 2002 at 2:22 PM Rating: Default
dosent proc at level one i have on on my 17 ranger and still no proc. it probably procs at 25
RE: Lame Proc
# Nov 22 2001 at 7:38 AM Rating: Decent
I dunno, maybe it should have no proc at all! Then at least i wouldn't hear the Biyatching =P

Don't complain, just rule @$$ with it!
# Mar 09 2001 at 9:19 PM Rating: Default
Found one of thes for sale at a vendor bought it for 45 plat from a vendor(24/9 plus resistance and effect for a mere 45)????? The vendor pricing with velious stuff must be seriously out of whack.....don't tell verrant tho BTW.
actually from what i've seen
# Feb 23 2001 at 2:53 PM Rating: Default

20 dmg? im lvl 51 and it still procs 12. i have revultant whip now though so i havent used this in a while
# Feb 21 2001 at 11:27 AM Rating: Default
I'd bet my plat that this will be changed to 'Random' the next time they patch. Hopefully anyhow.

Can't have melee classes running around everywhere solo'ing for God's sake...

hehe, well not like they'll solo with a 12dmg effect either 8)
Check out the weight
# Feb 21 2001 at 9:45 AM Rating: Decent
That thing is nearly weightless. Even wussy High Elves and Erudites could swing this all day long without tireing.
12dd proc
# Feb 20 2001 at 8:39 PM Rating: Default
Got this weapon off a random Kobold. Too bad it doesn't look cool like other velium weapons.
# Feb 20 2001 at 5:56 PM Rating: Default
are they serious? a melee weapon with a triggered dd? sweet if its true, but i suspect its a proc.
RE: triggered
# Feb 20 2001 at 6:11 PM Rating: Decent
The proc is not triggered. It starts to proc at level 25 same as the regular velium weapons. Nice little weapon all around.
RE: triggered
# Feb 22 2001 at 7:18 AM Rating: Default
Stats kinda (Bite) but it's good for long fights because of the wt only 0.1 as most V-Lab wep drops.... Eh....
