Would you stop already. We get the idea. Your guild had a couple raids this month and some stuff dropped.

As far as being a well reputed guild, you are not enhancing that reputation by abusing Allakhazam's boards by spamming your recruiting message on 50 different threads.

You want people to notice your guild, tell us WHICH mobs you took down in Greigs end, ToV, and POI, and what tactics you used. How many people did it take, useful stuff like that.

If you just post your guild got this, on 50 different threads, it just comes across as an attempt to brag.
Bash Update

Since the Bash update, I can now Bash for 80 damage not including my 1HS damage. I find in most circumstances this out-damages my Tantors Tusk at full haste cap (When 1HS at haste cap, too). I use a Goo Covered Knights Blade as the 1HS. Beforehand, 2HS was way to go, now for me it's all about 1HS and those 80 point Bashes!
Look?

Anyone know what this bad azz shield looks like? Cause my paladin friend has the paladin version he said it doesnt look good and I was hoping the SK version didnt look as bad. I hope it looks different personally cause it does have a different name and is for a different class. I personally love using a sword and shield combo myself just for the Knight look so I hope it looks cool. Any info on its look would be great thanks.

I am a SK 36th season but have been on eq for around 2 and 1/2 years and one thing I am sure of is that 1hs is the sure way to go with sk. Maybe up till 54 2hsers whoop us up, but as soon as the MDS pops in our inventory, all is over. 28/30 1hs 3 int/wis. most 2hs dont have near that ratio, and even the ones over there delay attack half as fast as this, and the only weapon to replace the ever uber combo as MDS witht his shield is a Pallidius axe which are almost never given to SKs since warriors can use them and they like the 80 ac more than an sk. SO gl getting one of those, otherwise, here is a future goal to drool over, just got mine hah.

2h > 1h/shield

Look it up on TKW ;)

The damage bonus on 2hers greatly improve their damage output. Tested it, and my Reaver (40/40 2hs) kills things faster than my Black Rock Maul of Crushing (23/23 1hb)

Only 1h/shield when you're tanking. When you're looking to deal damage, bust out the big guns.

Close, but a little more along the lines of "it depends". First, on the shield.....great tanking/off-tanking shield. I would go with my Atrementous (resists plus decent AC) or even a shield of Rainbow Hues (should I ever own) with 20 resists on all for pulls.

1H + Shield vs 2H. My opinions ;-). First let's assume we have good weapons in either category.

I use 1H + shield when (1) I need resists and (2) when I am MA.

The resists from my Shard of Night (or pick a similar weapon) and Atrementous shield are even more than a Di'Zok Imperial Katana, which is a nice balanced 2HS for stats/resists. For Aggro, the 21/24 speed of the Shard, coupled with occasional bashes, keeps aggro on me better than 2H weapons.

For off-tanking, or even pulling and then off-tanking WHEN I don't need resists, I prefer a big weapon. I can inflict insane damage WITHOUT getting aggro most of the time. Argent Protector, Greatsword of Discip[line (mine) anythinf in the 40+ delay category to get the bonus.

SPECIALTY areas: When fighting critters with damage shields, I always use my slow weapon (duh). Also, when soloing with KEI (about the only time it's effective), the delay on a slow weapon lets you throw a nice 75pt lifetap between swings....VERY nice.

Those are my opinions, and what works for me. The weapons I currently use to implement it are the Shard or Night (21/24 with stats and resists), Atrementous Shield (think SBS on steroids), and a Greatsword of Discipline (51/54). I'm sure others are successful with slightly different tactics.....I'd love to read them and learn!

Just to put my 2 cents in.

So far I have built two Dark Elf Shadow knights on two different servers. One uses the typical 2HB/2HS weapons "Soul Binder and Innoruuk's Curse"

The second and more refined one uses a Sarnak battle Shield and an Ebon Mace.

So far I have to agree with most of the posts here. A shield and a one hand weapon is definitely the way to go <My opinion>.

I recommend selecting this shield as a goal to attain.
As of yet, I have not obtained this shield but will post if my raid/quest groups finds anything related to this shield and how to attain it.

P.S. for those of you posting the negative side of shields or items not related to this ....skip it.
Correct One
# Jul 17 2001 at 5:50 PM Rating: Decent
Well seeing as how the majority of high end Velious loot has been upgraded i'd assume that the one with better stats is correct, and besides, Version 2 means that those items will be newer, and the latest stats.

Never mind my previous post, Throatripper... LOL

Either you are right about Frostwrath or it has been changed. Two different posters put an image for that sword's stats up on Noows, and both are different. One in the Temple of Veeshan Version 2 thread has the stats you mentioned, and the one in the Temple of Veeshan thread (original) has the stats I posted... Wonder which one is right?

I hope the one with your stats in the second thread is right! That's a weapon worth having as a SHD, but I still wish the INT boost was better...

Well, I just went and looked at Frostwrath, Throatripper... Seems to have much different stats then you mentioned. And I looked at it on Noows. Doesn't look like the best SHD weapon to me...

Frostwrath
MAGIC ITEM LORE ITEM NO DROP
Skill: 1H Slashing Atk Delay: 25
DMG: 19

SV FIRE: +15

Definitely a great weapon, but in the upper game, I want more of an INT boost than plus 5...

Well I just went to www.noows.com and looked at this item in the Temple of Veeshan section. It is quite different. On noows, the poster attached the screenshot of the stats and they list it as AC55, STR +10. This was posted there on 6/23/01... The item was posted here on Alla on 7/13/01 or thereabouts. I wonder if this item is real or if it was brought up to these stats on Allakhazam in the last patch between these two dates... Does anyone on Bristlebane happen to have this shield? I'd like to see it.

I am not evern a friggin Sk and i can tell this shield is almost scary it is amazing. The +20str should make up for not using a 2HS. 55AC, come on, thats amazing, a warrio would kill for an item with 55AC. Not to mention the +20 int. SK's can pop on der resist gear and not worry about losin any int. amazing.....

Geez Louise! That's a mighty fine shield. Most likely I won't ever see one, it is good to know there are super nice items put there for Shadow Knights. Being a dark elf, I like the option of good shileds and good 1h weapons.

# Jul 14 2001 at 6:58 PM Rating: Decent
Actually the best weapon for a Shadowknight, as well as Paladins is 1hs, it's called Frostwrath, i'll wait for someone else to post it but here are the stats, 22dmg 24dly +20ac +10str +5wis +5int +50mana +15FR and has a proc of Frost Strike. If you don't believe me go to www.noows.com, equipment, ToV version 2, then click on "Frostwrath".
Hmm
# Jul 14 2001 at 8:30 AM Rating: Decent
Its a very good shield IMHO. SKs are awsome pullers as long as they know what they are doing, their spells allow them to pull things from different angles such as behind locked doors great distances etc more so then most other classes. 1 handed weapons are still used and are very good, some of the best weapons for us in the entire game are 1 handed.

# Jul 13 2001 at 9:22 PM Rating: Default
Not all the good SK weapons are 2hs. Think Mace of the Shadowed Soul (1hb, 19/29), Ebon Mace (1hb, 19/24 I think), Noctivant Blade (1hs 18/24 I think) and Primal one handers, just to name a few. The damages on those may not be exactly correct, but they are very close, and that makes those weapons great still. Sure, you have Innoruuk's Will and some other big 2hsers, but a primal will beat those out still.

RE: Cept 1 thing
# Jul 13 2001 at 11:51 PM Rating: Decent
I'm not too familiar with SK pulling abilities (don't group with them much), but pulling with a shield and then changing back to the 2handed weapon is not beyond reason.

Or, keep it handy, and if you are getting beat within an inch of your life, switch to 1h/shield combo to last that little bit extra time.
RE: Cept 1 thing
# Jul 14 2001 at 3:34 AM Rating: Decent
Agreed, brother! When I play my SK, (granted he is young yet) I usually use spear/shield combo when I am soloing or when LOM/no healer in group. If its a good group, I can lose the ac and go for damage with the 2hs.
RE: Cept 1 thing
# Jul 15 2001 at 5:07 PM Rating: Decent
Bah, only cause you stole Auriet's pokey. =p
Just cause my erudite SK is so weak I tend to use a shield to make up for the lost AC from my str items.
RE: Cept 1 thing
# Jul 18 2001 at 6:23 PM Rating: Decent
Geez if you are gonna use any 2handed weapon try and get either soul binder or deathbringer's rod that way you will definately make a difference in DMG. But I myself being a DE SK use a cracked darkwood shield and a Moss for the int and str bonuses. Also if ur lookin into getting some nicer armor as an upgrade to DF try various pieces of ry'gorr and sentient. Awesome combo =) this is just fer mid level players lol cause it's not easy findin good 2hs fer us till over 45. And i dont care what you say i got rid of my dark reaver at a very early lvl and bought something worth while.

Hmm all good sk weapons are not 2h. The majority of them are, but at high levels you might want to switch to a 1h weapon if you get a really good one. For example the weapon dropped by yelinak (21 dam 19del) or a massive dragonclaw shard (28dam del30 and stats) are very good...with a good shield it can be better than epic in some cases.

*All good SK weapons are 2hs*

I'll just leave that there as one of the dumbest posts ever, before you post something like that you should check around, for example this combined with a black rock maul of chrushing is easily is good as the epic, probably much better in most casses.

No, it's a giant-faction reward: you need to kill a dragon in the North part of the Temple of Veeshan, who drops this. Sevelak specifically, if memory serves.
RE: OMG
# Jul 13 2001 at 6:14 PM Rating: Decent
Hint:


This item is found on creatures.

Found in:
Temple of Veeshan


Where that corrilates to Giant faction or Kael has seemed to slip past me.

Anyways, great item. I dig that this is SK only. SKs are great pullers and could use the boost... and a vary nice boost it is.
RE: OMG
# Jul 14 2001 at 12:27 AM Rating: Decent
The importance of killing giants to get an item in ToV is that a person with good dragon faction can kill dragons in the halls of testing to get items. The poster who said he was going to kill giants is assuming (be it a correct or incorrect assumtion) that this item drops in the halls of testing and not off a regular dragon.

Basically, no matter what faction you are on, your end game dungeons at this point are sleepers tomb and ToV.
