a 15/18 1hander is still a GREAT weapon for anyone in a pre-elemental guild and considering how easy it is to get with 3 - 4 groups of decently well-equipped organized people, it's amazing that more people don't get this. With a nice lifetap proc in the type 4 slot it makes quite a nice weapon. Too bad it's offhand only, but I guess you can't have everything.

See my post under Eashen for a strat on fighting him.

Apparently Chardok really rocks for loot, looks like I need to be camping there =)
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 16 2002 at 8:53 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Where the hell did you think that a 15/18 w/ haste + stats dropped in chardok. Chardok is a noob zone.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 23 2002 at 3:41 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i have information that says this wep drops in chardok as well could some one pls tell me if my info is correct or not so i can stop looking in the wrong place :)
RE: just asking
# Aug 26 2002 at 7:16 PM Rating: Default
This does not drop in Chardok friend. Something that is this nice would never drop in a zone such as Chardok or all of Kunark for that matter. Don't mean to bust your bubble bro.
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 04 2002 at 1:50 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) thnk u i saw it listed on eqatlas under chardok so i thought maybe i would get lucky but here it says temple of veeshan just wanted to be sure
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 25 2002 at 2:44 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) man for every monk item thats god you say it drops in chardok SO JUST STOP IT

Monk epics when equipped convert your hands at level 60 from 14/26 to 9/16. 9/16 will be the ratio of any level or race monk equipped with them. This item is incredible ... the most sought after item I have come across. Pair this with a gharns or primal velium fistwrap .. toss your avatar proc and you are a machine. Great to see them upgrading monks damage a bit to put us back where we were pre kunark .. masters of toe to toe damage .. and unchallenged.

He he..."masters of Toe to toe and Unchallenged"

Things sure have changed since this posting over a year ago....
Ive YET to meet one of these so called Uber Monks that put out more DPS than just your "average" Beastlord.....
Im not Uber in any stretch of the imagination just average gear, and as long as i dont have aggro (so im not getting the mob reposte/dodge etc)and mob isnt highly resistant, i do a solid 140 DPS at lvl 62....
Ive yet to meet a single Monk in 3 years that does a solid 140 DPS....though im sure he exist somewhere...maybe 2-5 Uber Monks per server might be able to outdamage your "average" Beastlord...

Your Uber Beastlord...will smoke any Monk....

Level 65 Beast with Uber gear raid buffed your looking at close to 8KHP, PLUS another 6K+HPs for pet, and pet can be CH by Beast...
Uber 65 Beast can 65% Slow Mob....Debuff it, DOT it, DD it, stand "Toe to Toe" to Mob longer than Monk back up let pet take over hit PAragon of Spirits and step right back in to deal more Dam...

Monks are more like maybe 4th in line in the DPS dept...
Im not so sure Rangers outdamage a well equiped Beast close...bout tied...

and a Fine H2H weapon such as this if there is a Beastlord there should be given first crack at it

H2H weaponary is the best option for a Beast by far...its the ONLY weapon skill a Beast Maxes out at....Monk on the other hand maxes at several weapon skills....
To give this to the Monk with a Beast in group, would be on par with handing one of the best Piercers in the game to a Warrior with a Rogue in group...(Rogue is the ONLY other class in game BTW that has only ONE weapon skill that maxes).

Dood,.... uber beastlord eh?..... im lvl 71 monk, and your 62 with a dps of 140,... LMAO, i could beat your *** in a dual without using my melee attack button,.... flying kick and riposte alone i would smoke your boots. I dont know my DPS but on any given combat round i can clearly see a window of at least 900 to 1400 dps. and my gear sucks,.... trust me man your little tiger wouldn't have a prayer if we fought.

# Jun 02 2004 at 8:02 AM Rating: Decent
i hate to say this but you are right in that aspect BL's over power almost any class in the game, BUT if you take away the pet a BL is just as usefull as a shammy =p and as for BL's getting 1st crack at it......dood Munks were around way before BL's.....dueal a Monk with out your pet and eat your words =)

Hate to tell you catpurr, But on alot of raids you can't use pets for agro, and because of push reasons. Take your pet away and any decently equiped monk will blow your bstlord out of the water in DPS. True you get spells, paragone, crack etc. But you sacrifice DPS. You may have more hitpoints as well, we simply get hit alot less. our classes where not meant to be compared in the same fashion. To say this is a pure Bst weapon is a judgement of your greed and character. If it was made for a bstlord to really have it would give your *** mana.
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 23 2003 at 10:58 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You are a complete moron. Beastlords are f-ing hybrids of monks and shaman and DPS Monks always >>>>>>> Beastlord with equal equipment. You forget dumbass Monks get triple attack just about the time Beastlords start thinking about double attack. Sure an uber Beastlord will probably out damage a monk with 2 CoTs.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 12 2003 at 1:54 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Actually, speaking of morons, perhaps you ought to get yourself a parser before you shoot off your mouth. I think you'll find that higher level Beastlords, with proper AAs and comparable gear, will just about do equal damage to a monk of same level. Then you must factor in the extra 60+ DPS from that nasty pet (Straight melee damage, not counting procs).
RE: epics
# Oct 31 2003 at 12:41 PM Rating: Default
actually iv yet to ever meet a Monk i dont usually outdamge also, even way back when i was like lvl 9 all the way to lvl 65 with 230AAs.

Buts its all kind of a pointless arguement anywho,

most of the time neither Monk nor Beast are doing "just" DPS anyway, Monks are Pulling etc, Beast are Casting Fero/Sav, healing, MGB Paragon, preslowing all mezzed Mobs to keep aggro off the chanters in case mez breaks, etc etc, so neither class is really the ones doing the lions share of damage on raids and such.

Thats the Wizards/rangers/rogues, even mages/druids.

Now in a single group with say a Bard pulling and say a SK tanking, yeah ill smoke a Monk anyday in overall DPS, so NO a Monk is NOT always >> than Beast in DPS, depends on alot of things, and how resistant the Mob is to cold etc, but even without my spells Im bout tied with most Monks damage wise just me and pet Melee only.

But DPS wise none of us Melees or Hybrids can touch pure casters anyway.
Hell a buck nekked 65 wiz on a CR can still pump out 300DPS in a pinch.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 14 2001 at 10:00 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) It's in the secondary slot because when u get ur epic it makes ur HAND TO HAND skill like a weap 9/10 I believe. So if u did get these...and u already had ur epic...then theyed be the weap with more DLY.

pretty soon they'll make weaps like 'Foot NYoAss' with 40% haste. Oh wait, that would be grey suede boots... damn..

Dude I thought I was cool when my monk won a siblisian berserker cloak, but they keep puttin more and more eff: haste items in the game... Now every lvl 60 monk in a large guild laughs at the plane of sky belt for being crappy.

remember when sash was like godlike? then you realized you had to kill eye of veeshan till you got the quest drop? kinda put a damper on things... I mean verant didn't wanna trivialize cloak of flames before, but they kinda are now.

This weap does own tho... big grats to Darkwind.
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 12 2001 at 9:23 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) just make hand wraps for all. No need to have any smithing skill to make weapons they lose both dam and delay doing so. Just wrap the strips of primal velium around your hand, much more effective than any weapons made from velium. Makes real weapons and Blacksmithing obsolete.
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 12 2001 at 7:24 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Sheesh get this and primal handwraps along with your epic...that's a hard hitting monkey if I've ever seen one.

#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 10 2001 at 7:22 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This procs 75% haste. Made so you don't need an enchanter to buff you at all times.
RE: 75%
# Oct 12 2001 at 9:12 AM Rating: Excellent
2 points.

1, It's not a proc, it's ITEM haste, so you'd still need a haste buff

2, It's not 75%, it's 40%
RE: 75%
# Dec 18 2002 at 10:39 PM Rating: Decent
This gives 41% permananent haste when worn. So far, the highest permanent haste is 41%, which is on several items.
# Oct 10 2001 at 5:10 PM Rating: Default
Needless to say, the new monk "handwrap" weapons kick the crap out of their epic (good, not like they work for it anyway ;). These are definitely a plus. Monks get dibs on the Primal Wraps in Sleepers, and the other 1HB's can go to the other dual wielders.
RE: Wowzers
# May 08 2002 at 3:14 PM Rating: Decent
this isn't an upgrade to the monk epic, this is something to use in tandem with your epic - epic is spell haste, this is item haste (enc's aug line)
RE: Wowzers
# Nov 22 2001 at 8:26 PM Rating: Decent
Actually, monks don't get dibs on handwraps in Sleeper's Tomb. The handwraps are not a drop, you see. The way you get them is turning in a primal/priceless battle hammer to the dwarf standing outside the zone-in, and he gives you a handwrap.

That means that monks still are in the competition for the 1HB in there - those are the only way to get the handwraps.
RE: Wowzers
# Nov 02 2001 at 2:35 PM Rating: Decent
Of course they get dibs on the primal hand wraps, they are monk only.
RE: Wowzers
# Dec 12 2001 at 2:43 PM Rating: Excellent obviously missed my point.

He said that monks get dibs on this drop in ST. My point is that monks cannot get "dibs" on this, as this is not a dropped weapon, period.

This is a weapon obtained by turning in a Primal Battlehammer to an NPC outside the zone.

Saying that monks get "dibs" on this is like saying that paladins get "dibs" on the Fiery Avenger....

Claw of Lightning: (Exact stats not given, estimate from memory) 13/18 Eff: Haste

Fist of Lightning: 15/18 Eff: Haste

Bout time monks got some kick *** weaponry post-epic....They said they'd impliment Pre-Epic..But no way I'd turn this bad boy down using my epic...

Oh! Lets start a new trend!

Secondary only?
# Oct 10 2001 at 4:28 PM Rating: Decent
Seems odd that this would be sec. slot only, what with the low it supposed to pair with the epic fists? Dont know a -whole- lot bout monks as of yet, can anyone explain?
RE: Secondary only?
# Oct 10 2001 at 5:08 PM Rating: Decent
The monk epic is a pair of gloves not a weapon, so it wouldn't really matter which hand this would go in.

By the way, I would take those primal fists over this any day.
RE: Secondary only?
# Oct 23 2001 at 9:14 PM Rating: Default
heres a novel idea(in all seriousness) y dont u get the primal, and this so u can get rid of those haste pieces for better stats and/or AC and u will still kik ***. to bad it so rare no1s gonna get both soon :(
RE: Secondary only?
# Jun 12 2003 at 2:03 PM Rating: Decent
Obviously, both would be ideal, but to the guy who would take primal over this "any day" I gotta wonder what yer smokin... Primal, while having nice stats and, of course, avatar, doesn't even come close to the DPS of this weapon. Primal weapons, or "ancient prismatic" as they are called now, are strictly switch-out weapons in this day and age. You use it until it procs, then swap out a real weapon for 5.5 minutes, then use it until it procs again. Rinse and repeat. I don't know anyone who owns primal that uses it all the time.

h2h doesnt catch up to 1hb til 60
It's really too bad...
# Oct 10 2001 at 4:04 PM Rating: Decent
That this item, and the other Fistwrap items, don't act as Hand-to-Hand weapons.

That would be neat to see, if Verant could code it. Weapon-slot equipable items that are used with the Hand-to-Hand skill.

Then maybe they could raise the Monk cap on HtH to 250 like it should be.

It's possible. Take the Sorcerer's Bowl for example, it uses the hand to hand skill.

Aye, Sorcerer's Bowl HAD h2h skill...but of course...after I used it for 24 lvls on my necro, Verant nerfed it and made it 1hb. Not like I melee much if any, but the least they could do is bring my 1hb to what h2h is.

Is this part of the increased monk weapons available since the last patch? :)
