getting back into eq after 5 years
# Dec 21 2007 at 7:51 AM Rating: Decent
I'm glad this sword is still worth something. I have not played this game in 5 years and my stats are pretty low compared to what everyone else in game at my same level. I'm going to sell this item and get me the new better stuff. Any ideas on what to get for a ranger level 50. Thanks in advance.

the last post stated overpriced back in 05 at 50-85k

Looking at this junk on tribunal Bazaar right at this moment, and lowest priced is 105k, and thats not even the highest ive seen it advertised.

I just dont get it. Its a Velious drop. Sure, from avatar of war, but cmon, were talking like a 5-6 year old drop. Its not used in any quest, Its a mediocre weapon in this day and age. It doesnt even have a friggen proc. Its only saving grace is no level requirement, but still, I just dont get it.

The only reason I can even begin to fathom how the price got drove up on this vendor trash is the same kinds of people who brag about having 15k - 20k HP, but never notice that their AC is not even 2000, and wonder why they drop like flies, or why the healers in their groups keep going OOM.

In this day, Maybe.. MAYBE worth 10k, but honestly that would be pushing it.

You said it yourself... "no level requirement"

This is the best tradeable weapon for a dual wielder under level 50. Not to mention it has 100hp and 10AC. That, my friend is why it sells for so much.

Start up a newbie toon and start searching bazaar for 1hander's for it. You will quickly learn why people want this and BoC.

Just because it's an old item, doesn't mean it sucks. With no required or recommended level, this is a VERY good item. It's still worth a lot because, not surprisingly, it's rare.

For a high level character, yeah there's certainly better out there but this is a pretty nice twink item now. Granted, it's a really nice twink item that isn't the easiest to get, so it's going to be expensive.

Today on Seventh Hammer it is selling for 50K. I kid you not. Overpriced if you ask me. I would not pay that much for one.

the glorious, i was looking at the magelo thing for the druid and in one of the traders satchel you have this ring that has no stats or anything and it says required lvl of 99...

I was looking at his profile and did not see much of anything on his druid and he's lvl 65. Unless he didn't want to put the rest of the stuff in.

Paid 20k on FV server. My 16 ranger loves this and when he dings 17 it will either be paired up with the bladecatcher or a priceless velium llongsword, haven't decided (will play both and see which combo works best).

All I can say is even with only a 21% haste item this thing is ridiculously fast. I would upgrade to better haste but they either semm to be back items (currently wear Cloak of Greater Pernicity) or waist (and I'm not giving up my Belt of the Turtle). So until I find better haste on hands I'm sticking with Silver Chitin Handwraps I guess.

Going by my personal experience and nothing else ... I love this weapon. I am a Troll warrior ... Our guild did the raid event, and I got the sword.
A week later ... when I bought the LDON expansion ... I now have the ability to put a Type 4 - Weapon Proc - augment on it. Guess what ... in a exp grind with me tanking( I say that because most Raids I like wielding Bane weapons if I can) ... rarely does anyone else get hit ... but I'm seriously thinking on putting a Anger3 augment on it. I have a Splitblade of Destruction in my other hand ... 34% haste belt ... I'm a buzzsaw that makes the enemy angry.
Now with the melee Disciplines ... If I think that there may be the offchance at the begining of the fight someone might over nuke ... I can Bellow as well. I think all in all this weapon is worth it in HP's, AC, and stats. Warriors can use this for a long time .. through many levels .. without fear of getting a bad rap since you Like HP's, AC ... rather than the occasional 179DD proc.

There is a guy on the Tunare server who has been trying to sell this blade for the past two months for 450k!!! I am serious, go check for yourselves. he cannot sell it, and I see why now...the blade isnt worth more than 25K. Now here is the kicker people.....he just brought his price down from 500K. What a fool!
RE: Outrageous!!!!
# Jan 09 2004 at 4:52 PM Rating: Decent
Agreed. I saw the same thing. I can only assume that he is wanting to buy a full set of ornate patterns and needs the cash in one big sell. Anyway, the blade is nice but be reasonable.

I've seen these for around 18k lately on the seventh hammer...
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 28 2003 at 12:57 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I was playing my 23 bard today when i noticed a sword laying on the ground. It looked like a SSoY so i though "Nice!" and picked it up. Much to my suprise, (and delight) it turned out to be one of these bad boys. Wow. Along with it there were Silver Chitin Handwraps. I dont know if it was a self transfer, dont know why they wouldnt put it in bank though.Oh well, very good day for me I guess.

#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 30 2003 at 8:06 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This kept no agro for me...i dont know what is different but i tried this compared with sbol...(Shortblade of lightening) and the agro sucked. The HP is nice on this, but a weapon is for holding agro. The stats are a nice side bonus...but i wouldnt take stats over agro anyday. I use copper hammer of striking / very nice
RE: Agro
# Aug 14 2003 at 6:06 AM Rating: Good
This isn't an agro weapon, it's fast light weight has ac and a more then decent amount of hp. As a Bard or a Ranger your job isn't for agro'ing.
Solid weapon in my opinion.

I love my new Swiftblade of Zek!!!

This has been on my list of wants for a little while, one of the things I look for every time I am in the Bazaar. To my delight one showed up a few days ago. I practically tripped over myself getting to the bank to pull the money out and running to the vendor! I recently went on a shopping spree and have several weapons and pieces of armor that I swap out to get the best combination for the days event but this will be staying in my primary slot for a good long while! I love the stats and speed. Though I am a lowly Half Elf Ranger I love to melee, and I am sure because of it I under utilize my bow. This thing is awesome with my duel wield, double attack and with 31% haste it does almost as much damage as the Wurmslayer I have (calculations in a 60 second time period of 462 dmg as compared to the Wurmslayers 475 dmg.). And with this speed it seems to me the more times I can hit the mob the fewer opportunities the Mob will have to hit me and the more likely I will interrupt any spell they may try to cast on me. I currently have a Guard Captains Mallet in my secondary. The only way to improve this, for my ranger anyway, would be if it had 10 Dex and maybe some more Mana but as far as I am concerned this is an AWSOME 1HS weapon! I was more then happy to pay 35K for it on Xegony. Can't believe there are still items like this that can be traded at level 1!!!!

One happy little Ranger!

I've got one word for you. Puberty.
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 11 2003 at 2:44 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Man you're annoying. Fake profile constantly in every post. No you could get a way better weapon then SBoZ for a pally. The ratio is crap if you can't dual wield it.
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 17 2003 at 2:49 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Your megelo looks like that and you dont know whether your paladin should use a jeldorin or SBoZ? I think the magelo is fake because your 35 rogue is wearing some absolute junk

Better than epic?
# Nov 02 2002 at 8:16 AM Rating: Default
I attained this weapon with the help of my great guild and being only 52 this weapon was godly for me :) Also, the other day I saw a Warrior wielding this weapon in his primary hand and the red epic sword in his offhand (the de-buff/aggro increaser - the blue epic sword is a stat booster) I am just wondering if this sword is better than epic?

RE: Better than epic?
# Apr 24 2003 at 8:44 AM Rating: Decent
Considering ratio wise, it is better than epic. Warrior epic ratio: 1.714, Swifblade of Zek ratio:1.636. So it is slightly better. It has more hps than epic, and it has ac which our epic doesn't. This sword doesn't have a proc or saves though. The price has gone down a lot.

RE: Better than epic?
# May 28 2003 at 1:48 PM Rating: Decent
ratio isnt everything.. this is also a lot faster, which with damage bonus would be more DPS. This in primary with the proc-epic in offhand wouldnt be a bad combo, decent damage (i know it isnt a warriors primary concern, but it never hurts) and pretty good agro. this WOULD however be better suited to a ranger (warriors proccing weps are better for agro, pal/sk cant DW, and a ranger DPS is more valuable than a bard DPS).

# Jul 29 2003 at 7:45 AM Rating: Default
Hehe, ratio isn't everything, it's the only thing. Everything else is secondary to ratio. Procs and stats are good to have, but for low delay weapons, ratio is godly. Ratio becomes less important when the weapon of choice gets way too slow to take advantage of primary hand bonus, like say a wurmslayer.
That is why dps wise, 12/19 > 11/18 > 10/17 > 25/40.

Ratio is everything? BUZZZZZ wrong answer... At least once you have dmagae bonus applied. Ratio > everything for offhand only. Once damage bonus kicks in, speed is the key. The more you hit, the more that damage bonus is applied. DLB has a great ratio, but a faster weapon with a worse ratio can out damage it in primary due to damage bonus. The higher the level, the more your damage bonus is, so the more important that speed is if yo uare looking for DPS.

Do you have to be level 58 to use the weapon?
RE: Levl
# Oct 30 2002 at 1:34 PM Rating: Good
No, you can use this weapon at level 1 if you choose to.

The "Level to Attain: 58 " is referring to what level you should be before attempting to try to quire this weapon (with a guild I might add).

Good luck to you
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 07 2002 at 9:14 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) LOL, it just came to me,could you imagine a lvl 1 ultamite twiked out warrior using this, a blade of carnage and wearing a full suite of cobalt? Allthough he wouldn't be able to use both weapons till he gets dual wield, but just think about it, lol.
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 01 2002 at 12:41 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Can we please get this "officially" changed to 100hp? This is still only 75hp on character screen, and is messing up my total hp
