Once you get duel weild, Try this as your primary and the silvery war axe as your off hand. Do to the low delay of the war axe your duel weild skill will go quickly

If you can't find it in the Bazaar, go to PoK and /ooc that you're wanting to buy this sword. Ask if anyone has one rotting in the bank or on an alt. Try it when PoK is crowded, and even then you might have to be persistent. But I got one for free this way! I was willing to pay, but the person just gave it to me - plus a couple of nice pieces of armor.
This and Icetooth's

I find that this in secondary with icetooth's claws as my prime it is a devastating combination for low-mid levels My lvl 16 war is dual weilding this and it RoXoRs :)) Just my 2cp l8rs

I agree. I use the same combo on my 16 WAR and it works beautifully. The only thing I find disappointing is that it doesn't have any special graphic, but for what I get out of it, I'll live. Smiley: grin

Spent a night off from hi lvl raiding to farm some black alloy armor for my alts and to make newbies happy. Forgot this and Babs also in zone. Lord Picklaw constantly wields either this or Babs. Black alloy coif IMHO is best item in runneyeye. insane to see 6sv all helm in a 25-30 lvl zone. Lord drops coif about 1 in 3 chances. Also see this on battle lord paluk on occasion. After killing Battle wizard Ulak I have yet to find anything of value on him.
Also notice black alloy tunic drops more frequently than any other armor piece. U would think with highest AC it would be most uncommon. But shoulder/legs seem to be the most rare.
I used this armor set from lvl 1-20. My pk strategy was to hideout in dark areas around blackburrow/everfrost area. Barbarians runnin from BB to bank their loot had a hell of a time seeing my halfling rog. player spins around for a looksee and i would time a bs just right.

Nice sword
# Jul 27 2002 at 3:15 AM Rating: Decent
Best chance of getting one of these is to go to the bottom floor and pull and kill Pickclaw DESTROYERS. My group managed to get 3 of these in a 1 hour session down there. Not exactly a common drop but we weren't exactly wetting ourselves everytime one dropped

Acts as a lightsource, same intensity and colour tint as a Greater Lightstone...

Looks like a_longsword, same as any rusty, bronze or finesteel longsword out there using the old-world longsword graphic. Black with grey edges? Honestly, do you guys think before you hammer away at your keyboard like a chimpanzee on crack?

New Buy (and a Newbie)
# May 26 2002 at 6:54 AM Rating: Decent
None of the prices I've seen on this site even remotely reflect what I've paid for things on my server, The Nameless, I paid 10pp for an Obsidian scimitar (though I believe that was mostly the kindness of a stranger -- still have it :) ), I paid 12 pp and an HQ Bear pelt for a Runic Carver, and received a shaped Ashen bow w/silk (again mostly the kindness of a stranger --still have the Carver, gave the bow to another aspiring Ranger ), and now, I just bought this blade for 30 pp, from a player who was hawking his goods in GFay. No favors here, I believe I paid near what the market was bearing, plus or minus. The player seemed to be experienced, and was far traveled, go figure.

I have read that prices fluctuate quite greatly from server to server, but from other incidents and feedback from friends it seems that our server is consistantly coming in at 1/4, or less, of the going prices listed here.
RE: New Buy (and a Newbie)
# Jul 22 2002 at 11:24 AM Rating: Decent
Most of the prices I've seen here are good on the server I play on (Innoruuk). Actually there is a lot of price gouging that goes on and I've used the prices posted here to wrangle most people down. I had been trying to buy BA for my rogue and it was just too expensive for me. A few nights ago some person sold me the Ba armplates, Legplates, Mail and waistband for 1pp per AC. That was a great deal. Of course the guy had bags of the stuff that he was selling so I guess he could afford to drop it that cheap.

hay friend, just to let you know you are on the most twinked server in the game.. everything on allakhazams is about 300 % high for our server, except for the REALY high end stuff. So unless you are looking to buy gear from dragons, you can pretty much divide the prices here by 3 or 4. just so you know, and welcome to the nameless.

You think thats Nice...try equiping the Blackened Alloyed Longsword and A Suit of Gnome Skin Armour and see what can poison ya then..Not to much lol speaking from experience.

9/24 is a LOT better than 10/29. go for the Icepaw warclaw.
bought mine in the bazaar
# Feb 01 2002 at 4:03 PM Rating: Decent
I got mine from a merchant in the Bazaar who didn't even con amiable for only 84 plat. Gotta wonder about them merchants sometimes.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jan 26 2002 at 1:42 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) crystalized blade is much better than this. i hit for 29 ususally and i have only 88strength. even though i sold it and got a BABS for free from some idiot lowbie

Sure crystallized blade is better, for sk or pally. For anyone else, its useless, since they can't use it. The new Centi Longswords are better than any of these, but not everyone has 1k to spend on a sword. BTW, the reason the "idiot lowbie" gave you a babs is probably because he's someone's alt, and his main can waltz into runnyey any day and pick one up. He was doing you a favor, and you call him an idiot. Go figure.
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 10 2002 at 10:57 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) HAHA he's soo right. your the idiot. WTF your the one with 88 str using a babs. my necro has 88 str.
RE: better blade
# Jan 30 2002 at 5:15 PM Rating: Excellent
Someone gives you a free sword and you call them a "idiot lowbie"? FU jackass. And you are only lvl 20, so you're not much better than a lowbie are you now?
Cool Weapon
# Jan 22 2002 at 1:03 PM Rating: Decent
One cool thing about this sword, especially for barbs and humans and others (are there any?) without night vision is that it is a light source. Just another helpful bonus of this sword.
# Dec 18 2001 at 4:24 PM Rating: Decent
Errr im using this and wak of the frozen skies, i switch them around a LOT. it's good for damage, i hit for 20 with it and delay is ok, sometimes ill put the wak in offhand, but since it has less a chance to proc(my dex is pretty nice so it procs a lot) i keep the BALS in offhand. btw im a ranger so i hope this helps rangers a little.

btw if anyone is selling a velium warsword or shortblade on cazic send me a tell on atwight please. :)

I'm looking for a good graphic black bladed sword. Is the graphic for this the standard original longsword graphic with color changes, or something better? Also, anyone know of a good graphic black bladed sword a paladin can use for higher levels?

RE: Graphic
# Dec 23 2001 at 4:27 PM Rating: Decent
Got one of these last night and it doesn't look like a normal longsword, it looks like a bronze sword.. this may be a SoL addition don't know because I can't remember what bronze looked like before SoL. it's a nice sword and hits in mid twenties and is fast, I thoroughly recommend the trip to RE citadel to get this weapon for mid 20s chars.

Looks like any other longsword. I really hope SoL gives us some more assorted weapon graphics. Most midlevel characters still look like they just looted rusty weapons for their equipment.

very low price compared to crystallized sword
# Oct 30 2001 at 3:41 AM Rating: Decent
i bought my blackened alloy longsword for 75pp in ec and paid around 350pp for my crystallized sword. i say they are very similar in stats only bal has 3 poison, and much cheaper..hey i`ve sold my cystallized sword now and got myself a wurmslayer cool eh....bye
# Oct 24 2001 at 2:06 AM Rating: Default
seems to be a rare drop. spent just over 10 hours in RunnyEye today and never saw ONE. saw three or four BABS and a lot of BI/BA armor, but no Longsword. what gives?
RE: rare?
# Feb 14 2002 at 7:04 AM Rating: Decent
Anyone one of the named mobs in Runnyeye will drop either the babs or bals 9 times out of 10

lord pickclaw

Anyone of those.
RE: rare?
# Oct 24 2001 at 4:18 AM Rating: Excellent
Try to kill the Battlelord or the Lord. They seem to have the best drop rate on the BALS.
Dual Wield...
# Oct 11 2001 at 2:31 PM Rating: Default
Does this sound like a good combo for my Ogre Warrior? Wurmy in primary and this is secondary. I think it would be good because Wurmslayer has really good damage and this has good delay and damage.

RE: Dual Wield...
# Oct 18 2001 at 9:49 AM Rating: Decent
Well, it's what I'm using (Wurmy and this), and it's been treating me pretty well. ^_^ It was this or a Crystalline Sword, and I liked the look of this. Surprisingly, the poison resist helps. *shrug* But that's just my 2cp ^_^

# Sep 19 2001 at 8:00 AM Rating: Decent
I traded a blood stained dagger for this sword. I honestly didn't know what it was but my Ranger couldn't use the dagger and this sword was second slot equip (my primary is icetooth claws). I believe this weapon is becoming more common place. It's still nice though.
Do you have to pay to get one of these?
# Sep 15 2001 at 10:35 PM Rating: Decent
My brother told me that if you go to Runnyeye and ask nicely, a high level person could just get one for you.

Hey i read someone paid 300 odd pp for this i paid 75pp, but i guess i got it off someone who didnt knows it worth.
Anyone got a screenshot of what this looks like when weilded
# Sep 04 2001 at 3:17 AM Rating: Default
Well, does anyone have a pic of what this beast looks like? I use a Berserker along with a Blade of Fiery Lag and/or a PGT. Im 35 and kinda want a better weapon, and someone mentioned it as "cosmetic issue." Cool looks is just a bonus, but I wanna know what it looks like. =)
RE: Anyone got a screenshot of what this looks like when wei
# Sep 14 2001 at 4:54 PM Rating: Default

Pardon? My warrior has one and it looks like a rusty longsword. Typical grey blade, typical hilt. Nothing exciting at all. Not that it should matter since it drops on the old world, but I'm fully patched in all the expansions and it still looks like a rusty longsword.
