Ok kids, this item is NOT fake at all, i just bought one this morning in the bazaar for my berserker at 400pp, yes 400pp i think it was a mistype. (not complaining about it, it is a good mistype) This weapon is a great upgrade to my Argent Defender, just took it out for a spin and its just a great all around weapon.

This was a nice upgrade from my Noct and Combinig it with my SCHW's makes this thing unbelievable, I hit very steadily for 80+ dmg with my 40SK at 142str 160dex losing the AC from my SBS was nothing compared to my dmg output increase, BTW I bought it for 6k on saryn server
Cant over estimate this wep
# Jun 02 2002 at 1:29 PM Rating: Decent
Ok. Heres a worthless cheerleading post.Hopefully it might help someone decide between getting this wep and something that suxxors more.

THIS WEAPON ROCKS.If you have the chance buy it. I bought this off a friend who won the roll in DN a week before - for 2K! This thing is worth 10x that.
Gave it to my then 15th lvl SK. Yeah yeah..I know that was too early but my Pally already has a Str of Grodan and I was really in the mood to finish twinking my new favorite character.

I soloed my way with this wep faster than with any of my other chars because I was putting out WAAAY too much damage with such a low delay. Albeit I have more str&dex than the average 20-40 lvl SK, (201 str/134dex) there are plenty of people out there better.
Now as far as vs. the Epic...thats comparing apples and oranges. The epic is better...but stats arent the main reason for getting an epic...the trials and travails of the journey to get it are why you do it.
Trust me this wep rocks and if you /auc WTB for it..and can get one under 10K sell what you got and get it. Im cant wait to see what this thing does over 50th lvl. While Verant did make this a little too powerful, its not an affront to people who work hard to get other items...there are other Verant twink items out there for each class. BUT THIS WEAPON ROCKS.

I recently purchased this weapon on Povar from a quite uber gentleman who wanted to turn it fast. It is a huge upgrade over my Noc Blade and the damage difference is quite astounding. The loss of stats and ac (have been using a Clay Guardian Shield) are a small price to pay for the much higher damage output. This sword rocks for fear kiting and role of second tank which I always seem to land!

RE: primal
# Mar 04 2002 at 8:47 PM Rating: Decent
That primal 33/35 is ok, good only for the proc. You want to see a good monk 2hb? Check out this,

And if you don't think it's ever dropped go say hello to Skippie on Tallon (and please be a lvl 52+ lightie, so he can whoop your ***) Ntov > ST
oh ya baby\

this sword rocks for a 2hs i swing alot with it and average arround 100 dmg with a 256 str and have maxed 142 non-crit with it much better dmg than my Wurmslayer does
It is Sweet
# May 29 2001 at 7:09 AM Rating: Default
I just started using this weapon. It is the first weapon in a long time that made me take off my Sarnak Battle shield and Wurmslayer. I am doing Incredible Damage with this sword and it is fast for a 2hs. It has made a significant difference in my group getting xp too. And the war lances from DN are awesome as well, I just need to get my skill up a bit to realize the gains.

how much is this worth?
RE: Wha?!?!?
# May 17 2001 at 3:30 PM Rating: Decent
I have this weapon, its one of the best for 2hs out there except for the primal and exquisite weaps (and epics) which sometimes have slightly better ratios and/or stat modifiers

the weap drops off named dragons in western wastes

the graphic is the same as throneblade or fellhammer

much better than acg or wurm, i guarantee
RE: Wha?!?!?
# Jul 08 2001 at 5:49 PM Rating: Decent
Actually, this sword drops off various rats in Dragon Nec. I got one the other night from a dominator on the ramp.
# Apr 18 2001 at 3:04 AM Rating: Default
I have this, looks like a fellhammer.
Now THAT made me laugh.
# Mar 01 2001 at 3:03 AM Rating: Default
Honestly saying a 32 35 will outdamage a 30 43 or 26 40? Ahem, YES
# Mar 01 2001 at 1:46 AM Rating: Default
Claidhmore??? Is Verant being creative on the spelling of "Claymore" or what? Sweet weapon. Silllllly name. =)
RE: Claidhmore??
# Mar 01 2001 at 2:01 AM Rating: Decent
Actually, Claidhmore is the traditional Scottish spelling.
RE: Claidhmore??
# Jun 02 2002 at 12:24 PM Rating: Decent
Funny how everyone thinks of modern Claymore mines that the military uses, not that things might have a historical reference ;)
Don't any of you realize...
# Feb 28 2001 at 10:38 PM Rating: Decent
that because the delay on this weapon is lower than 40, it's not quite as good as it seems?

I'm reasonably sure that a Wurmslayer will do more damage over time than this weapon will.
RE: Don't any of you realize...
# Mar 01 2001 at 12:22 AM Rating: Excellent
Hate to say but....

Wurmslayer sucks.

Did you notice that dly over 40 bonus does not affect damage output so much ?
It's like +1 to minumum damage per 3dly over 40 and over 40 dly I must say the weapon is SLOW.
You will be swinging less and getting the damage bonus less.
Also, WS will be far lower damage than this,
Rato & damage wise.
Not taking into count that this one has a 2handed weapon bonus applyed when WS has a 1handed weapon bonus, wich will make the damage output gap wider.

No need to point out my grammer and stuff
misstakes please.
Not everyone that posts live in a english
speaking country =P
RE: Don't any of you realize...
# Mar 01 2001 at 1:54 AM Rating: Default
I don't insult people, especially over things like grammer.

But are you honestly saying that this weapon would out-damage an Arbitors Combine Greatsword (30/43) or a Runed Blade (26/40), for example?

Are you honestly saying that the Tempered Velium Claidhmore (32/35) is a better weapon for straight damage than the three Epic two-handed swords? (Discounting procs here, btw.)

Somehow I think you are really discounting the "over 40 delay" bonus.
RE: Don't any of you realize...
# Jan 02 2005 at 4:18 PM Rating: Default
I'd say this weapon is better.

And it's "grammar."

not fake
# Feb 28 2001 at 1:23 PM Rating: Default
This is probably not fake as i saw the lance thing from necropolis yesterday, a 59 sk was wielding it and it has the same stats but is 2hp..
so i doubt this is fake

and i hate ppl that says everything that is good if fake, but i kinda understand em quite, cuz verant IS nerfing everythin =)
The screenshot doesnt make it look too convincing
# Feb 28 2001 at 12:47 PM Rating: Default
Sigh you people complain that we yell its fake its cause look at the screenshot. Totally black so you cant tell if it was an actual screenshot. I mean if ya dont want people questioning its validity, dont change the color of the screenshotted backround. Plus god i hate seeing all these sigs that the person puts on it, like they went in their solo and got it themselves. Great so now a few more people have glanced at your name wow! /rant off
RE: The screenshot doesnt make it look too convincing
# Feb 28 2001 at 12:56 PM Rating: Decent
They're in full screen mode, and have a non-opaque background, which I do for readability in certain windows.

And getting to the Dragon Nec and finding a new item *is* a nice accomplishment. Why shouldn't he put his or her name on it? After all, they took the time to post it, so your lazy "I've never been to Dragon Necropolis because me highest toon is 15th level" butt can see what's in store for you if you make it to the higher levels.

Of course, if your whining is any indication of how you behave in the game, you won't be invited on the raid anyway :)

#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 28 2001 at 8:46 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I want every single one of you people that yell and scream "fake" at every item that comes in now to go and prove them wrong. Go search that zone yourself. See if you can find it. Ohhh wait your only level 20. You will probably never see these items in your own inventory. You will be lucky if you bump into someone weilding one of these in Kelethin while tradeing. Yet you will come in here ever night and read posts of the incredibly hard places people are fighting and exploring. You read about the amazing booty they return with and the first word out of your mouth is "FAKE". You know what you all need to grow up. For all those who found these weapons and armors use them well I hope they serve you well. And to all you freakin losers I hope you enjoy the bronze you will never grow out of.

Not fake
# Feb 28 2001 at 8:22 AM Rating: Default
It's not fake, there are a number of different weapons in Dragon Necropolis, we got a bunch of them a few weeks ago, most weapons also come in a few different versions, for example we have gotten a claidhmore with 30/37, and two bows with 1 delay difference..
Please no more "fake" posts
# Feb 28 2001 at 3:19 AM Rating: Decent
If you are concerned about a items validity, please do not spam the discussion with posts of "this thing is fake" and the like. If you are truly concerned take it up with AllaKhazam (if he has time for it and isn't insulted by your opinion of his checking on matters) or the person who reported it. It seems every item listed on this board has the same post now of "FAKE" and it doesn't add any information to the board. I will post this on all of the relevant items from today's post and never again, so please try to not post such wasteful messages.
Dont you all realise

... That this weapon comes from hard places? i dont understand why everyone screams FAKE just cause it dont drop off Orc Pawns... GEEZ lvl up and 1 day you may see this Fine weapon
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 27 2001 at 6:44 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) That HAS TO BE a mistake. Thats the most increadable damage to delay ratio I have EVER seen! Its impossible!
RE: Wha?!?!?
# Feb 27 2001 at 11:10 PM Rating: Default
well there are better weapons than this. for example check out this 2hp 50dmg/60dly
RE: Wha?!?!?
# Feb 27 2001 at 7:11 PM Rating: Default
its real. drops in necropolis and is unbelievable

RE: Wha?!?!?
# Feb 27 2001 at 7:41 PM Rating: Decent
It's definately real, I know this cause I am currently swinging this monster :p and yes it does come from Dragon Necropolis
What creature drops it?
# Feb 27 2001 at 9:33 PM Rating: Default
what mob in drsgon necropolis drops this?
RE: Wha?!?!?
# Feb 27 2001 at 8:02 PM Rating: Default
its not the best~ i have a ranger staff thats 31/35. making it better than this
RE: Wha?!?!?
# Feb 27 2001 at 8:12 PM Rating: Default
exquisite velium battle axe dmg 32 dly 36.
Good enough for ya? =) Most of the 2 handed Exquisite weapons have that ratio.

Now just wait-- Sleeper tomb's Priceless velium weapons ratios will blow your mind.
RE: Wha?!?!?
# Feb 27 2001 at 8:46 PM Rating: Decent
If I can remember this correctly, the monk staff that drops from Trakanon is 44/40 or something insane ;)

There's also a 30/35 2HP that I've seen with my own eyes, so this is believable.
RE: Wha?!?!?
# Feb 27 2001 at 8:46 PM Rating: Default
FoH hasnt even released the stats of the Primal Velium weapons which they claim to be better then any weapons they have found yet.
RE: Wha?!?!?
# Apr 22 2001 at 2:51 PM Rating: Default
No, but I've talked to some people in da`kor, the uber guild on E. Marr, and the primal velium war lance is 33/35, +5 to all stats and saves, and procs avatar, the level 60 shammy melee buff
