Why aren't gnome shadowknights able to use this?
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

The item's stats have been updated since the screenshot. I've updated the database accordingly, and gnomes may now use these. Smiley: wink

If your a race that doesnt have regen like the troll and iskar... I tell you... this lance is great. Iam using this at lvl 41 on a def sk. This really helps the healing hang time a lot. with 133 dex this thing processes for me like crazy i love it... just need to get my pierce up its only 39 right now lol. But i think this lance is a must for any SK. Really helps out a lot.

Using SCHW its great too really helps out the speed.

This lance is pretty nice...

This lance has comparable damage/delay to a Mithril Two Handed Sword... only with AC, INT, and Leach instead of the haste effect. If you already have a haste item, this might be a nice alternative even with the higher weight.

# Mar 24 2002 at 7:34 PM Rating: Default
sorry, but with the 30% haste on the mith it's delay goes down to 27 and the damage is 21, so it has a ratio of 1.2 something, this has a ratio of 2.0 this is basically crap for the lvl it is attainable except for the effect, i suppose if you want to waste time on this go ahead, but you'de be better off buying a BABS for about 200pp or less with the way server price inflation is going... :(
my story

I got this weapon in the low 20's, was given the grimy lance in cazic, and had my brother's 46 necro kill the guy in the kitty city. I still use the lance at lvl 37.

As an erudite sk, i have little strength. I weild a dark reaver until the strength spell procs, then switch either to this lance til it procs or a dark edged 2 hander that a very kind cleric gave me.
Ive noticed that the lance seems to have a higher change of procing on the swing that kills the mob. Probably just a coincidence, but it happens a lot, so a little regen after the kill which is nice.

my only problem with the quest was that i went LD 3 or 4 times, twice after my bro killed the kitty! thought I'd never finish the quest!
Did this today...

Last night, I spent 3 hours in the morning rampaging the Warrens to gain faction in Paineel. When I got to amiable, I got the key to Paineel and ported to Antonica (if anyone asks me if the 30 dollars for Luclin was worth it, I'd tell them being able to port to almost every continent in the game is worth more than 30 dollars :)). Went to CT. Killed the Spiritualist and got the Grimy Lance.

Today, went to Odus, and then to Stonebrunt. Found Kitty City. Found the disciple. Didn't know he saw invis and ended up aggroing the entire village, heehee. FDed outside of city. Found the spirit and gave him the Grimy Lance and got the idol. Went to Disciple and single pulled him out of city. Got killed by too many wandering mobs. Went back, tried again, and went the whole nine yards on the Disciple and killed him. Invised up and went into city again before spirit despawned. Handed spirit the idol. Got the lance and got aggroed by the kitties. FDed outside of town.

All in all, this was rather easy, and if I had been more careful on where I pulled him, I could have avoided that death. It just happens that all the aggresive mobs decided to wonder into my pull spot. The second time I did it higher on the mountain and avoided the attention of the wanderers but still managed to keep away from the village enough so that the disciple wasn't chain-healed by all the shamans. The reward was well worth the effort, too bad my piercing skill is at 46 :P. Still, at 108 dex, it will only take about 3 full hours to max it out.

I recommend any SK that can't get their hands on a better piercer post 40 do this quest.

Make yourself a heretic mule, get him invised and run him to Stonebrunt. Once you get him to the spirit, give him the lance, he gives the lance to the spirit, yada yada yada - the hardest thing about doing it this way is keeping the mule alive on the journey.

If you do not have faction with the heretics, then you can not this quest (as has been posted).

im afraid you would have to get though the warrens first.... good luck.. it would never work..

Besides.. if you dont have good faction, kill everything you can see in the warrens for a few days and you will be set... after 2 days i am warmly.. i expect to get ally today..
Hum.. not that nice really
# Oct 05 2001 at 2:48 PM Rating: Default
I was considering getting this thing until I realized that it's actual damage (proc not included) is pretty weak for anyone above lvl 35. I have a box (blade of xargoz) and I now believe that I would still do more damage in a fight with the box.. even if the thing procs on every hit it will only refresh and not do anymore damage, and instant lifetap for 45 for the mana cost is so much better ..
only advantage I see is the fact that you keep regen after the mob is dead .. but if 72hp is a problem in a fight you probably shouldn't be there in the first place or maybe in a group.

The Quest for the Lance...
# Oct 04 2001 at 9:24 PM Rating: Excellent
Here is my experience with getting the Soulfiend lance.

My guildmate who is a 31 SK wanted to get the Soul Lance. Unfortunately his faction wiht the spirit wasn't good enough to do the quest. That is when he enlisted me.. the friendly guildmate Enchanter. He gave me the grimey lance to give to "a spirit" (it looks like a red wisp). The spirit spawns in the middle of hte zone just a bit south of the kitty city.

I cast my illsuions and other enchanter spells to get my faction to amiable with the spirit.. then i turned in the grimey lance and he gave me this:

Idol of Fear
No Drop No Rent...

The next step was to kill the kitty disciple in the kitty city. Our first attempt at doing this was highly unsuccesful (me being a 24 enchanter and him a 31 SK). I think we ended up training the whole city on ourselves. Somehow we boht got away without dying... i gated.. and i dont know how he pulled off surviving.

Anyway.... after our utter failure we enlisted the help of our guilds local L53 magician. We made sure he was in our group. The person who kills the disciple must be grouped with the person with the idol for the Ghost to spawn.

We killed the disciple no problem (I didn't attack just to avoid getting aggroed). The Ghost spawned immeadiately after the death of the disciple right near his corpse. The ghost is KOS to anyone who is KOS with the heretics so watch out.

Before we killed the disciple I cast my illusion erudite spell. As soon as the Ghost spawned it started attacking our L53 Magician. I could not turn the item in to the Ghost while it was being attacked, so I disbanded from the group.

Once disbanded I handed it the Idol and I got the soulfiend lance. (it didnt harmtouch me or anything like someone else said it did)

I had problems handing it the idol though. Be careful since it aggros on anyone who has bad faction with the Heretics. I don't think you can turn in the idol if the ghost is fighting.. so warn any party memebers about that.

Oh... and here are the faction changes

Heretics up
Deepwater Guard (guards in erudin) down
Craftkeepers down
Gatecallers down
one other faction down

The last 3 factions are all the casters guilds in the palace of Erudin. I am now dubious to them, i think i was indifferent or amaible before so use caution there.

I wouldnt attempt this quest without the help of someone L40 plus. If i remember right the kitty disciple was around L35. At that level you will end up training 1/2 the kejan city on yourself. So get help killing him.

That is all I can think of about the quest.

Good luck,

Got this weapon last night, Very excited to take it out into the field. Had 56 Chanter Friend, Ellonwy help me out, as i had tried to do the quest before, at level 39, and even with full HT,HP and mana wasnt able to draw out the damn Okarote, without training the city FD pulling even. So that said i think it will rock for me, the healing, and the int and AC are nice i just hope it procs like mad, like ive been reading. Anywho, anyone know about a nice sk only 1hs quest i could do at level 41 or so, i hate buying and selling when i can just quest for it . Good luck all, and ELLONWY if your reading this YOU are a Kind and True player, helping me out on this, and i want to thank you again !! Peace out

Well, I tried to do this quest tonight with my 42 DE wizard.

The spirit spawns in almost the center of the zone, by a large tree just south of the village. It is on a one hour spawn timer, the first time I found him he was killed by a wandering kobold, so I waited an hour at the same spot and it spawned again in exactly one hour.

I gave him the grimy lance, and he said "I will do nothing to aid beings like you". Bummer. Well, anyway I was pissed at waiting so long and not having it work, so I decied to kill the Disciple anyway.

I targeted him, ran outside the gates and then let him have a newk, as I was worried all the other cats would help him (they were all green to me at 42, the Disciple was blue).

Well, he came running out all by himself, and 3 Shock of lightning spells later he was dead. No idol and no ghost in his place. Although I am a worshipper of Innoruuk, I can only guess that you must be an SK to get the spirit to talk to you.

I guess the next time I will have to port my baby SK over there and hope I can get him to Stonebrunt in one piece to hand in the grimy lance. Looks like a nice weapon.

The spirit is aligned with the heretics of paineel. I am an iksar SK and killed paladins in Erudin to get up to Kindly faction in Paineel (took about an hour) before attempting this quest.

Basically, if you can get a paineel key (from the guards in the newbie area) then you should be able to complete this quest. If the guard tells you to FOFF when you ask for a key, then the quest won't work.

Im really kind of proud of verrant for most of the quests in stonebrunt. All in all pretty nice rewards, ESPACIALLY for the levels intended for the zone. I also really like that they made the Titans unroot/snareable. Keeps nukers from just farming em. Course with my 53 paladin i have soloed all but Giang Yin and he is just out of the question, even if debuffed he just a little beyond solo. Still, i really like what they have done with this zone. Im really against the loot code, but i think it goes along with this zone pretty good.

This thing didn't proc for me when I got it at 23. Just turned 26 and decided to try it again, first fight it proced right away. 25 sounds right.

been useing it along with other weapons since lvl 21, it finaly proced at 25, the Leech proc is really nice, but it seems too short to help much at healing unless it procs with the killing blow.
Hey Im 40th and using it
# Sep 09 2001 at 8:42 PM Rating: Decent
This Weapon is great for all the reasons already mentioned here (terrible graphic though ... )
How ever what is really great about it is you DONT need good faction with heretics to get it.
- get the grimy lance from Cazic Thule (Ritualist)
- go to stonbrunt
- cast locate undead this will lock on to the spirit (and incidently helps you find the cat town too because thats to the right on top of the cliff!!)
- hand in the grimy lance and get the idol
- go up the cat city and find the disciple
- hit it with a strength syphon or some low damage so he aggros you and get him to chase you away from the town (up the cliff is not a bad location) - dont waste your harmtouch in the hut - he will be healed before he reaches you.
DO NOT FIGHT HIM IN HIS HUT ! There are about 6 healers in casting range. You WILL run out of HP before he does.
- Kill the disciple
- Run quickly back to the hut and hand in the idol to the apparition in there (and not his pet LOL I accidently did that first time)
- Suffer an 11 pt HT or life tap
- be a proud owner of a Soulfiend Lance

And it procs like crazy for me and I only have 87 Dex!!

I have to agree - I was given a stalag terror spear and I think this is better. At this level we do heart flutter anyway which is similar to Disempower.

I hope this helps you budding SK out there.
And to all you high level farmers - I drop my pants at you - Loot codes are great ( heh you now have High levelers having to buy stuff off low levelers )

Well, I can't say for sure that you have to be indifferent to the ghost of riddosan or if dubious will work, but I can assure you that if you are KOS to heretics, the ghost of Rhiddosan will harm touch you for around 321-361dmg and then proceed to beat you up. I've seen too many people get killed by this guy when the disciple died to believe that you could do this quest without SOME faction with heretics.

As far as the higher level farming thing goes... I was level 54 when I did this quest and still hang out in stonebrunt quite often. The only items I've found thus far (for quests) that trigger the trivial code are the panda claws.

The proc

46 posts
I'm level 54 (for now) so can't tell you what level it will proc, but I CAN tell you that when I first got this thing i had no idea what leach was so i started fear kiting a tiger or two so I wouldn't be taking damage while the proc was in effect.

The lance seems to proc much more often than most weapons I've used for SK. A dark reaver pales in comparison to this weapon simply because at the rate it procced for me, the effect was renewed before it wore off 90% of the time.

I presume that it's effect is similar to soulbinder's soul bond effect in that it requires a disease based buff slot. If you have rabies, soul bond won't take hold, so I would suspect that the leach effect is the same way.
RE: The proc
# Sep 10 2001 at 3:53 AM Rating: Decent
The Proc is a L8 Necro Lifetap DoT .. it's 25-35hp i belive over 4-5 ticks ... As a lower end weps this is nice ... The Proc level would be intersing ... But the 5ac is be nice ... But for a low level this isnt bad
This is just too cool
# Sep 08 2001 at 8:58 AM Rating: Decent
Wow, well i must say that this weaopn is just to cool. Twink or no twink, does it matter? I just love to have weapons of all kinds. This is a weapon you can actually get yourself at a low level , with a decent proc <when?> and a modifier to your int. Any Sk in the area should hunt for this thing, i know when my oger is high enough he is. Woot it procs, i still cant get over it... this is just to cool.
# Sep 07 2001 at 3:48 AM Rating: Default
hehe, well i was looking at this item and thinking its rather cute... yep, its below the standard of weapons for my characters now simply due to level, but while looking at what level it takes to attain this thing, if yer actually working yer way up at the outset, and not just twinking *Another* toon this thing would really rock :)

Get a Stalagterror spine spear instead
# Sep 06 2001 at 8:34 PM Rating: Decent
Honestly, while the damage on this is higher, I'd say that most SKs would be better off with a StallagTerror spine spear 15/34 procs disempower 1hp. Procs at level one, and proc increases effectiveness at level 34 (str/sta/ac debuff). If you can obtain this, my bet is that you're not too far off from getting the spear (drops in Crystal Caverns). This thing ain't too shabby though. The stat bonuses are nice, but I personally like being able to have a shield (Chitin shell Shield (4str 10sta +to a resist).

Just my 2cp

Chitin shell shield doesn't add to strength or Stamina. I assume you meant Crustacean shell shield, as the chitin shell is: ac15 +10sv poison.
RE: Get a Stalagterror spine spear instead
# Sep 07 2001 at 4:27 AM Rating: Default
nah my SK is 49 and i DID have stalagterror. if had this i would have dumped the spear for this lance any day. not just cuz dmg is higher but dmg BONUS on 2hs beats 1h - throw in a lifetap proc and u can just drool. also, when soloing (fear-kiting) the extra AC of a shield is secondary to just raw hurtin of the mob, since he shouldnt spend much time facing you anyway. yer lifetaps and this proc will help nicely to make up for not havin a healer.

just the way i would work it, having HAD the stalag spear.

they have one already. the Grimy Lance drops in Cazic Thule for anyone who cares to camp trivial loot code either!
RE: Haha!
# Dec 30 2002 at 1:17 PM Rating: Decent
The Grimy Lance is kinda crappy. Reason is, its used in this very quest.

In my opinion this is better than a Messanger of the Queen, and for me it was easier to attain.

# Sep 10 2001 at 7:41 PM Rating: Decent
Loot code is what Verant put in to make it harder for high level farmers. Basically it means if you don't get experience for killing it, it won't drop anything LORE, MAGIC, or NO DROP. You will still get cash and regular items though.
