This weapon is **** offense but if you were SK with that crappy of weapon then you might as well use 2 handers cause you can buy better 2 hander and 12 hp isnt that good of life drain so yah my advice ***** this and get a 2 hander
.......I like to hunt for items myself then sell them later just for the hell of it

Don't tell us you're comparing an item from 1999/2000 to ones from 2005.

As I have been living in Stonebrunt Mountains for the past two weeks now, I have seen Jelquar 5 times now. Relatively easy kill for a 36-37 Druid. Just Root, Dot, Nuke, Nuke, med. down.... The 5th time I saw him, I saw that he had the sword... So, I just had to take him out... What a rare find, and it takes a long time to get. Not that it is difficult, but time consuming and boring; so I feel that this sword is worth more than its stats would warrant.

Oh, BTW, looks like a Nocti/Shaded Blade when equipped.
How much
# Jun 01 2003 at 10:30 PM Rating: Decent
I found this guy up near the beach. Just tracked him, walked up and killed him. Cinch kill for a 55 ranger. Was green to me. Looted sword and a heretic's head. Never seen him before. What's this thing worth? Everyone here seems to say they'll pay 1k for it.
Is that a good price?

I have been hunting in SBM for a while now, about 2 months. Have done sash quest about 10 times, gotten 2 haste sashes, done wakishi quest about 5 times, done Rognarog the Infuriated about 2 times, and done Titan legs quest 2 times.
I have spent alot of time tracking this zone.
Today i was in there hopeing to find Titan up.
No luck, but I do see an unfamiliar name on tracking so i get excited and go to take a look.
He was dark blue to me (I'm 46) and was a little west and south of cat town.
Noticed he had a sword that looked kinda like a Centi Longsword, got even more excited, and killed him quickly.
Anyway, my only alt it a Troll Shadowknight.
Luck me i guess.
Oh, it's 4-17-03.

Through many dangers, toils, and snares I have allready come...

Just got one in the bazaar
# Feb 15 2003 at 5:08 PM Rating: Decent
lol, After almost 8months of trying to find one. Spending a few hours here and there in SBM. I was just getting ready to log and somebody asked for a PC on one of these. So I offered him 1k for it and he said DEAL. I'm pretty excited although i may not ever really use it except for those oom situations. all in all its a cool sword to add to my collection.
I got one yesterday
# Jan 27 2003 at 9:52 AM Rating: Decent
I was in stonebrunt looking for the titans and this guy was on track. Didn't have any idea what he dropped just killed him cause I was bored and he droped the spirit reaver don't know how much I should sell it for 1k sound fair? I'll be selling it in bazaar -brell serillis(gulin-51 ranger)
RE: I got one yesterday
# Jan 30 2003 at 9:00 PM Rating: Decent
1k sounds reasonable. That's what my ranger is trying to sell his for.

I saw Jelquar for the first time on tracking yesterday, and I've hunted in SBM with at least six characters ever since the zone went live. I didn't know if he was a heretic or a koby. In my tracking window, sorted by /con, he was sandwiched in between two elder pandas, so he must've been like 34 or so. When I got to him and found he was a sword-wielding heretic, I said the hell with it and jumped him. He didn't appear to undercon, hitting for 70x2, which is just about right for that level. He never even harm touched me, nor cast ANY spells whatsoever. I'd say he was no worse than Martar IceBear in Everfrost. When I looted him, he had the sword - which looks like a paladin's Sword of the Morning (sp?) - and a heretics head.

This would have been an outstanding SK weapon a year ago, but now (1/30/03) it's above average at best. Its rarity and low proc level (20th) are the biggest things going for it. 800-1000 sounds reasonable.
proc waki
# Nov 12 2002 at 6:38 PM Rating: Decent
WOTFS procs at 19th lvl, and the SK weapon is much better than the waki since it has a much better ratio. The lifetap is only 11 but it gives you 11 hp and it is even lighter to carry than the waki.
So if you got a SK give it to him and dont bother with the WAKI.

Okay, my 1/2ling ranger (34) managed to solo this loser (well, I did have a little help from a Kejak Tiger). I have a 9th level troll SK. This looks to be a pretty good weapon when I start getting a strength bonus to damage. So at lower levels, do you think I should have my SK use the Wazikashi of the Frozen Sky or the Spirit Reaver? Remember, an 81 point DD proc would be huge at my SK's level. Any suggestions are appreciated.

If I remember correctly, the Wazikashi of the Frozen Sky dosen't start processing until level 25, so that 81 point DD process isn't going to kick in for a few levels for him. In my experience, the Wazikashi has been something of a disappointment when it does process - just my opinion. On the other hand, this sword is made for an SK, has a much better delay/damage ratio, and starts processing at level 20. My troll SK alt loves it.

I have been living in the Stonebrunt Mountains for about 3 weeks now trying to get my Mage the astral armor. I pulled tracking up and saw his name. Didn't know who he was but I had distance tracking on and he was about 8 down and just south of the Kejek village so I went and checked it out. He was fighting a Highland Tiger when I saw him and yes when he has the sword you can see it. I whacked the tiger a few times to be sure he won and then I took him down pretty quickly and looted the sword and a heretics head. Made my 4th head so I went to turn them in and I got the headband (. I couldn't tell the difference between his head and any of the other male heads. At least my SK has a nice 1 hander now and can put the MoSS away for awhile. Back to killin leopards.
I found one!

I finally found someone selling this weapon in EC on Fennin Ro last week and got it for 1k. It looks like the Breath of Harmony when equiped. I don't think the guy that sold it to me realized how rare a drop it was. It's nice to go oom and still sucking the life out of something.

Grrrr after a long time hunting jelaque down I finally confronted him, killed him and got his head (which I cant use because of bad faction) and a stupid Fine Steel Katatranatmitsu thingy which I promptly threw away. No sign of a SpiritReaver!!!

Youve got to ask yourself this guy is a rare spawn of a rare spawn and Verant doesnt have the decency to at least make sure he drops the only reason to hunt him?

Check the posts here I have been looking for this weapon since the 4th of September 2001 !!

Oooooo It makes me angry...

I spent some time in Stonebrunt over the weekend. I finished the Soulfiend Lance quest then I found out about this sword & I could use a good 1HS weapon. 'Sides, I have a thing about SK only gear :)

I ran into 5 other people in SB who has killed him but all he dropped was a FS Scimitar.

Anyone know anything? They nerf the drop? or removed it from the game or what? I kept goinf LD so I coudnt find out if this guy really is an SK. I do know he didnt have a pet with him on one occasion.

Hopefully my 'net connection will be more stable later this week. gonna keep trying I guess until I get it or find out its broken.
Can you see it?
# Mar 23 2002 at 8:50 AM Rating: Decent
Can you see the Spirit Reaver in his hand when he has it? Does he have it every time if he's blue or higher to you? Is it true that the trivial loot code in SB has been lifted?

So many questions!!
RE: Can you see it?
# Mar 28 2002 at 1:26 AM Rating: Decent
Have only seen him once and yes you can see sword in his hand if he has it. I am not sure if he does everytime or not. Yes triv loot code was lifted from SBM.
wow! nice surprise
# Mar 13 2002 at 5:40 PM Rating: Decent
I was in Stonebrunt with my 37 ranger hunting heretics to try to get that haste sash (done the quest 3 times, have gotten crap headband each time) when I saw Jelquar the Soulslayer on track. I had never heard of this guy so I quickly ran over to investigate. I saw that he was a heretic so I let loose and killed him. I got a heretic head and this Spirit Reaver! So I guess this is proof that he does indeed spawn however I think he is a very rare spawn as I've been hunting in Stonebrunt since level 32 and I have only seen him this one time.

major PITA
# Feb 14 2002 at 5:19 PM Rating: Decent
Was attempting to get this sword with my SK at level 38. The apes and wildlife in the area aren't bad for xp, just invis for regular travel. Was with my pathfinder friend who was doing the heretic heads quest, and let me tell you, ranger SK teams are just awesome.

Was in the zone a period of a few days. In that time either i was on or grouped with a druid (having to run around the entire zone due to poor drood tracking). With the ranger 2 heretics spawned, pretty easy to take down. With the ranger, had one immediately (said she was there 4 hours), and one a few hours later.

The heretics are SK's or necros mainly, so expect a harm touch or a dot, but were a cinch to take down.

There are also heretic invaders who spawn, well one. He drops a heretic head. I heard that the elusive Jalquer spawns in place if the invading heretic, tho have no proof to back this due to my inability to find him.

My theory is that the cat people, who are slightly stronger and wonder around the entire zone, kill the heretics on sight, hence the lack of heretics. that combined with an already slow spawn timer makes this camp (the ENTIRE zone, big zone too) a major PITA.

As far as buying this weapon, it's rarity will jack up the price to an undesirable price, and you would be better off saving a couple hundred more PP and buying a MoSS, 19/29 +10 int. having second thoughts about 1hb? Check out the Ebon Mace, better ratio than Noc Blade.
RE: major PITA
# Mar 23 2002 at 9:03 AM Rating: Decent
It's true, the kejekians WILL attack the heretics on sight. In fact, EVERTHING in this zone will attack a heretic on sight, except another heretic (and yes, i have seen two heretics up at once. on tracking, anyway. rangers do have their uses...). It's part of the reason they're so rare. However, I recall once that I saw Jelquar up for about 45 min to an hour. He is a lot tougher than your standard heretic. I've killed him three times, but have never seen the sword. So either the trivial loot code is still in effect (J was pretty green to me at 51) or my luck was just typically bad. My ranger will be heading back to Stonebrunt soon to get another swiftclaw sash, and you can count on her slaying the Soulslayer whenever he shows up, if she's the only one in the zone. Otherwise, if there are young'uns in the zone, I'll give a shout and help as best I can indirectly.
Druids are excellent powerlevelers, and rangers are part druid...

RE: major PITA
# Dec 19 2002 at 4:35 PM Rating: Decent
Damage shields are what make druids the best powerlevelers, at least for under 30 and maybe under 40. It goes a lot faster than what a shaman could do.
# Dec 03 2001 at 9:59 PM Rating: Default
Yea he spawns in Stonebrunt and is a massive undercon, you'd be lucky to solo him at 40. He is a wandering mob so he's hard to find, and he's pharmed alot too, get yourself a ranger and some buff buddies, he has harm touch and a pet, he is a Shadow Knight after all, I'll take me 1K pp.

# Apr 21 2002 at 5:35 PM Rating: Decent
Lets see, is any of your post true? I have killed him twice as a ranger with a shaman partner, once at 33 and once at 34. He did harm touch, but the heretics in Stonebrunt NEVER have pets. Neither SKs or necros. He is not pharmed, but he is a rare spawn and hard to find, so I guess you aren't a total freakin liar.

I have spent heaps of time in Stonbrunt and never seen or heard of him being up.

So Im offering 1kpp for this sword or information that successfully allows me to get the sword.
