Very handy

Got this few weeks ago Very nice to melee with. I only have yaulp 5 atm but thats 10mana regen sta regen 23pct haste and 70 to dex and that boosts my dex up to 255 and this thing procs alot a very usefull hammer to have when you bored out of your mind because the group if a good one. I for one hate sitting and doing the Cheal thing.
On Clerics and Melee =)

For the record, clerics can melee as well as any caster, and better than most =)

In Bastion of Thunder, I've tanked giants before as cleric (emergencies mind you, ie tank went LD). Its really not that hard to chain stun, beat on the mob, and have the shaman/druid chain heal ya. Its not efficient, no, and its not what we're made for, but its possible - and its fun.

With Yaulp VI and a few mana regen buffs (aside from the KEI line - for example BL crack [SP/SD], mod rods, bard song, armor or the zealot, or necro twitches) we regen just as much swinging as we do sitting, and its a LOT more entertaining to go out and wreak havoc with your summoned hammer or this mace than it is sitting on your horse going cheal, cheal, cheal..

in any case, this mace is awesome, and i look forward to getting one to go beat things with =D
wow I like it

I just won this weapon and its really nice in fact 2 of them dropped.
I did a crit heal that did the group (210) it didnt process a ton but it did process plenty. I do have my epic and its nice being able to melee with a bonus :) looks like a velium mace to me.
I will use this instead of my epic.

very nice

When in a good group I melee and this would make it even easier. With the mana regen we can get these days I rarely sit to med in a good group. With this, I can probably melee with a so so group.

For those who dont like to see a cleric melee, tough! Im FM and I want something to do and if it makes mobs die a bit faster, then you are getting exp faster.

I just hope this drops for us this week.

Yep see clerics weilding different weapons more and more, just whip the epic out for rez ;p
# Apr 01 2002 at 1:41 AM Rating: Decent

This would be usefull to any questing clerics..
Right now I am sitting in the owlbearcave wishing for something better..

The advantage that this has over the legs which cast a similar spell (100hp group heal) is that this IS a proc and not a right click. Most right click items have cast times on them, meaning that the cleric can't do anything else during that period of time. Procs, however, have no cast time. This heal will produce almost no agro, neither will the clerics weak meleeing skills. When the cleric is FM, this could be a lot of fun, and at the same time save them from having to cast a heal if a few casters are down a few hundred hp from an AE, but are still around 80%.

Is it insanely useful? No. But it is pretty cool and allows the cleric to have some fun while at fm, while at the same time allowing them to spread some healing around.

Forgot to mention that if a cleric had avatar on him this thing would proc a lot more and be even more useful.

Great item, very nice stats. This is definently going to be primary item, and you keep epic in the bag for a free rez..pretty camped rage for 30 hours just for the effect..hehe. Well if you have a chanter in your party you could boon your cleric. This raises dex by 100, makin you proc like mad. So when cleric is 80m or so he can start whacking mob(be sure to stay out of melee's pisses em off when you get in the way). The cleric (with haste) would proc a ton, so this will heal your group quite efficiently.
And yes, clicking you PoG, thurg, kael, SS, or PoM leggings would be much more effective than that idea. Mine Akkirus' greaves work wonders on groups in small rooms, especially when wizards or druids overnuke.

This weapon would be useful to change out with the epic for the extra HP and +5 resists.

The proc on this weapon is a gimmick and nearly worthless. Or at least I can't think of a real use for it. Melee players really don't want you getting in their way for the pitiful amount of damage from cleric melee. And you will probably get more healing from just standing there and right clicking your britches, or medding.

Power of the Darkside? =P

This kinda seems like a much more uber counterpart to DawnFire, Morning Star of Light which drops off of Cazic in Fear. This weapon is beyond uber and it's really only fitting that it drops in the scariest part of ToV. Gratz to anyone with this.

Even better

This just proves that Clerics need duel wield!
Heal in one hand a res in the other.

i'm just curious, what's the look of this thing? the stats are awesome, but i was wondering what weapon LOOKS the best...
RE: looks
# Aug 03 2001 at 9:43 AM Rating: Decent
The only excuse VI can possibly give to excuse the lack of creativity on these "uber" items is with the graphics over haul on the horizin they didnt want to spend a lot of time creating icons and then, creating new icons again.
RE: looks
# Aug 03 2001 at 8:37 AM Rating: Decent
Heard it looks like a FS mace. Yay variety.
RE: looks
# Oct 21 2001 at 10:53 AM Rating: Decent
it hits like a double bastage on crack, yay variety (no sarcasm there!) i think FS morning star is the best looking weapon i ever had, dark ember looks like a poo, i wish it looked like EBM. wraith bone looks poopy too. stuff that beats FSMS look that i have seen: this one amazing nak hammer from chardok, looks like the wvelium 2h hammer look but it's 1hb, the translucent white block on a stick. aslo, cleric epic woot!

this hammer has better over all stats than the epic, (i'd still get an epic, even if i had this, epic is cool) dunno what blessing does tho
RE: looks
# Jan 10 2002 at 5:57 AM Rating: Decent
Look is the same as Velium Etched Stone Mace I believe.

This: Primary

Blackstar is actually a beer. It's brewed by the Great Northern Brewing Co. in Whitefish Montana.

So it seems someone had a few and decided to make a new cleric basher.

Look it up

Hehe I bet your right ;)

We'll find out if we start seeing weapons like the Bayern Halberd or the Scapegoat axe or something similar...

#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 02 2001 at 5:13 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) oh my god you are all complete morons this item would NEVER go to a cleric but you all wuldnt know because your mindless n00bs who have never been to temple of veeshin but i have and im a monk and i have this wepin because all the real players know that a monk should get this item since it has such good stats and stuff and the dmgdly is a good 1hb for a monk and you all should shut-up and die if you think a cleric would get it because you dont have a clue about us high level stuff so bye

#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 03 2001 at 10:42 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) its pretty obvious this guy is i don't see why everyone feels the need to correct him. Some people find it funny to mock all the monks who constantly call just about anything good and under a weight of 5 "monk items". just thouht i would point that out.
Nice, but...

1st, is a great item.. and grats to those that got it. But for the 100HP Heal.. Wouldn't it be better to get the PoM Legs that RClick for the same effect? As opposed to whackin a mob for 5-10 mins to get a single proc? Just my 2 Coppa worth

Hah! I would sure enjoy being in a melee match with a cleric wielding one of these as long as we where in the same group. Heh the damage would go something like... 3, 23, 14, 12, 31, -100, 8, 16, 1, 29, -100, ect ect. Depending on the proc frequency of this weapon, obviously. Seeing as it's ToV, I am willing to bet it's high.
No realy...
# Aug 08 2001 at 1:06 PM Rating: Decent
Hopefully you know the screaming mace..procs with a Yaulp...well it would kind of be like that as you are fighting it probibly does like yaulp casts as a self heal instead of on the Target...

Are you people just plain retarded or what?

First off, If cleric only dumbasses. Second the stats are better then the cleric epic except for the rez. Btw: this comes from NTov, and if you have this, you more than likely already have the epic. I weild this instead of my epic.

Third, there is not cool looking model, it looks like an ordinary mace. You dont normally go attacking crap in NToV, but its fun to use when doing exp or messing around and whatnot. The effect is a PROC that is 100hp group heal.

BTW: highest level rez in game besides a GM 100% rez is 96% not 97%.
Thanks for Clarifying

So, the proc is actually a 100 hp GROUP heal. OK, that makes a big difference. I would agree with you and other posters that if someone had this and the epic, they'd be better off wielding this during battle, and wielding the epic after the fight. But three questions. First, isn't any form of group heal during a fight a great way to get mobs to aggro on you?? Second, rather than meleeing to get the proc to go off, at this level wouldn't a cleric be better off medding?? Third, how on earth did you determine that the best non GM res is 96% and not 97%?? How do you even detect that small of a difference, and does it really matter??
RE: Thanks for Clarifying
# Aug 02 2001 at 12:08 PM Rating: Decent

1) No. If you have three parties beating on a monster, your heal isn't likely to out-aggro 17 other people. And it's only 600 pts total with a full party.
2) Depends on the proc frequency and the cleric's dex. This isn't something to survive by, it's just icing on the cake.
3) Verant has stated the rez percentages, Casters Realms has ( and so has every website with cleric spell info. (You can parse the info too)

all i can say
Great weapon!
# Aug 02 2001 at 8:19 AM Rating: Decent
Since most clerics that would be on a party killing this mob likely already have epics, this is a great weapon to have in hand when not rezzing.

Often if a group is very good, the cleric can jump in to swing at mobs. This would just be icing on the cake during combat. (Doesn't make clerics tanks mind you. And yes our combat skills usually are maxed at around lvl 50)
