I emailed in a change.

Camped one for Bigmorr my 35 berserker so he could have a nice piercing weapon.

Have to sell it I guess.

I was thinking about purchasing this for my rogue. he already has an Exquisite velium spear in his primary (12/20) and in my secondary the 12 damage is great but the +15 str is awsome that would put me up to around 175 str and in my opinion i would rock then good day to all.

Best Combo?

I am a lvl 35 rogue and have a few good peircers to choose a good combination from. Im not sure what would be the best combination so if any of you could help that would be greatly appreciated. I currently own these:

Blood Point
Hardened Bone Spear
Jagged Ice Shard
Rabid Chokidai Fang

Being lvl 35 none of them proc yet. I like the Fang in primary for BS, max is 278. Is there any other peircer I could buy that would give me a more effective combo than any of these could? Once again any input would be greatly appreciated.

anyone know what lvl you start getting the dmg bonus on this weapon

bonus is calculated as current lvl-25 then divide by 3

example lvl 30 would be 30-25=5 then/3 =1.6666 or 1 but lvl 31 would be 2

so using this as a formula the first lvl you should get damage bonus would be 28.

Ok I got a Trak Tooth ( 10/20 ) in prim and Locustlure ( 8/17 ) In secondary and I backstab for 130 or so at level 41 I've seen backstabs for 230+ with this so that 2 dmg and 15str is GIANT difference, I'd say save up for this crap and get shadow rager in secondary and you OWN

P.S. 12/25 15 STR goes in Primary. Shadow Rager ( 8/18 proc Berz Str ) Secondary...Procs alot so you get 25 str and often + 20 more str, so get that combo, it uber
#REDACTED, Posted: May 24 2002 at 1:11 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I hate having to resort to this, but I really want one of these for my rogue. I've been auctioning on Saryrn for 3 days now and I haven't even had a person offer. If anyone is willing to part with this give me a holla in game, either Calahan or Shlitze.

What is the approximate loc of this guy? I was told to the left of the Mons Let zone- wandered all around there and never saw him.

Just had a vision...... I was thinking coming out from Mons Let and go left, whereas the person who told me probably meant as you were looking at Mons Let zone. Ha, maybe I will get it yet.

Cheers and Happy playing- still looking for a disgraced Shadow pop in Twilight and not getting any younger. Anyways, a approx LOC would be nice.

some useful info

Just confirming this drops off Crusader Kezzal. he's not tough, prolly 51ish hits for max 140 and can be found in middle of a field of undying iksar's (that hit for 165) and rockfiends. pulling him and getting him solo is the hardest part =)

so far he's had this both times ive seen him.

I picked up one of these for my lvl 35 kitty rogue and with this spear and a tbb he backstabbed a critter for 232 dmg... I will be using this til I get high enough that shaman buffs negate the need for the 15 str myself.
I love it already :)
# Jan 03 2002 at 8:45 AM Rating: Decent
I am dualwielding this spear together with a Longsword of Ethereal Energy at the moment. It's a great combo, my best backstab with this weapon was for 297 damage so far.

Gotta love the strength.

went to the grey for the first time last night with my usual four 60 sk, 57 druid, 60 chanter, and me 59 cleric. ran out from the zone to look around, stopped to kill a regular skellie there and got ambushed by like 8 mobs. druid died, chanter zoned with 0 hps and got put on other side of next zone, i zoned, and sk somehow got FD off holding the crusader (which im not sure where he was) at the zone. i came back in and we killed. Most off the mobs we came across, crusader as well, seem to have low Hps but hit very hard and fast. anyway my rogue cant wait to have this thing )) he was blue to 60 and blue to 57 so he had to be around low 50's. good luck getting yours!

I like this one. I could dual wield it with Harpoon of the Depths and have Orc Impaler in range slot (when not using my bow). I could be one bad *** piercing weapon ranger with good items in all 3 slots with good adds. I will try to get one or purchase one.

"...I like this one. I could dual wield it with Harpoon of the Depths and have Orc Impaler in range slot..."

I am usually not the one to bash people (it's not a nice thing to do), but COME ON!

You'sa gonna dual wield this 12/25 weapon with a what? An 8/25 primary only weapon? What kind of fruity dual-combo is that? Whenever you wind up with this new spear, be a buddy and give the crappy Harpoon to some newbie or guildmate. Or twink one of your alts with the Harpoon. Or somethin ! And then, get another weapon that somehow compliments this one.

Don't be "the sad muthaf**kin ranger dual wielding one sh*t weapon and one decent weapon"! Dammit, don'!

GIVE THIS WEAPON TO A ROGUE!! This might be a better weapon than some of you have but for you other classes, sell it and get a good 1hs. This should DEFINATELY! go to a Rogue no questions asked. And if you happen to get this item it would be a GREAT reason to make a rogue because up until around level 45 there are no better piercers you could get your hands on unless you have 7k plat in da bank.

Do f!@#wads know why you play this game even? I'll tell you something about me. I am an old school roleplayer. Put it this way, I was born before man landed on the moon and I played D&D almost from the time when it came out. I can remember when the Dungeon Master Guide and the Players Manual were one black and white magazine.

What I am trying to say is I don't give a flying rat's *** about the best combo possible. I don't care about max damage and all that crap. I rarely twink, these are the weapons I have. God almighty man, you are level 51. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand you wouldn't use that combo. I happen to think this combo would look great on my ranger. For the "crappy" weapons I have it would be pretty good adds for me. I am broke (but a Master Fletcher) and still wear some banded. Do you understand? When I eventually get a better weapon than the Harpoon of the Depths to put in my primary, then I will do that. Please stop trashing posts you have too small of a mind to understand. If it is possible, try to have some fun and help some people out. To me, you are a disgrace to rangers. If you feel so strongly about how dumb I am, then why not give me something better? I wouldn't take it from a snob like you anyway. Idiot.

Young man, you misinterpret my rant...

I'm not bashin ye because ya desire this spear, since it is a right decent weapon.

I'm not even bashin ye for havin a Harpoon of the Depths and an Orc Impaler (myself at lvl 30, I strolled into Frontier Mnts and SWORE I was the sh*t with my 6/22 SSoM main hand and my Sap of Piety in the off, hehe).

** What I'm bashin ye for is ** the audacity yer showin by merely SUGGESTING a "fruity" pairing of your Harpoon with this 12/25 weapon! Since the Harpoon is primary hand only, you'd be dishonoring the superior bone-spear weapon by putting it in yer off.

And your reason for doing this unholy combo is " STFU, noob! I r rolplayr! " ?

When you finally get your hands on the new spear, I'm almost certain you'll be thinkin along the lines of "Harpoon of the Jigga-Wha? Bah! Who needs that?"

To look at this matter at a slightly different angle... it seems this spear may be selling for about 6k plat for the first few Luclin months, then maybe it'll drop down to 3k plat. Where j00 gonna git dat kinda money, hah ?

I'm glad you asked that question, for I have a few unasked-for suggestions!
== The Bandit-Sash Quest (in North Qeynos): At your current level, you can do this quest and make a little over 100 platinum a play-session easily. Solo, you may hunt/farm the bandits in WK, NK or SK and save their sashes. Your reward for each sash is faction, experience and, more importantly, a bronze weapon (that can sell for 2 to 3 plat to vendors). Some bad stuff about this quest is a) it's boring...hack/slash bandits till your eyes bleed and b) not much xp, unless you hunt in NK and snare-fear griffons (between routine bandit-stompings).
== Runnyeye: Bring a group of friends around your level and hunt the final floor of Runnyeye! Fast xp, decent armor/weapon loot and, even in group, you can also make over 100 plat a night here.

Okay. Thank you. Sorry about that. I was arguing with my girlfriend when I was posting that day. Of course, I am not blaming her, I was the one ranting and raving in more ways than one. I may just hit Rathe Mountains for awhile also and kill giants.

I don't know your level, but if you're in the 40's or higher, I recommend killing the seafury cyclopses in OOT. You can also take out Gornit at that same island. He's a solo spawn on the shore and drops descent pp most times. If you're a 'good' race and the woodelves like you, you can swim across to the Sister island and sell your wares. I can make 100pp per hour or so there, soloing with my necro.

It looks like +10 or more on a single stat will be much more common in Luclin than it was before. Should be interesting to see people having to juggle around items for big stat boosts now (rather than getting lots of little plusses).
Look at the delay and weight, too!
# Dec 05 2001 at 5:30 PM Rating: Decent
If these values hold up, just about every class listed will want one. I sure want one for my barbarian Shaman, that's for sure. Please post the level of the crusader whenever anyone has time! Thanks
RE: Look at the delay and weight, too!
# Dec 05 2001 at 5:41 PM Rating: Decent
looking at the EQatlas info on the Grey I'd guess at minimum 40s, more like 50s for the mob that drops it
# Dec 05 2001 at 5:14 PM Rating: Decent
Ouch!! 12damage with a 15 bonus to strength. man i would hate to be the creature that got backstabbed by this thing. hehe.

p.s. not saying it should go to a rogue, just saying that it would be real painful in the hands of a rogue.
