Picked this little gem up for 300pp in Bazaar couple weeks ago. My Piercing skill sucks big time , but with the proc of 75dd and the rate this wee beauty delivers it at it still rocks.
Between this and my Venomous Axe of the Velium Brood im getting a minimum of 4 procs per battle usually quite a bit more, not bad with only 105Dex i feel.
Praise the day i took a chance on this thing ))))
All i need now is a Worn Haste effect and im laughing, had a Chanter Haste my hummie *** and by god i was LETHAL !!

i used that same combination for a while until i got my green jade broadsword i always used my dhy in my offhand but if your piecring sucks i recommend getting an icy blade and dual pierce with your dragon horn. Both proc and have very low delays the icy in your off hand dmg6 del 21 and the dragon horn in your right. the amount of damage will go down but they are very fast and will raise your piercing skill quite rapidly at least it did for me.
Dh yak
# Jan 11 2002 at 5:47 PM Rating: Decent
Well, I have my DH Yak, was from a buddy who got it and couldn't use. But I have a centi shortsword and sarnak skullsplitter. So should i just keep using my 2 1hs weaps or use all 3 and just rotate? My piercing is crappy btw, thanks for help.
RE: Dh yak
# Jan 23 2002 at 7:26 AM Rating: Default
i would suggest using all 3 of them and just rotating you never know what new weapon you going to run into that you going to like so build up your pircing and start stabing away , peeps need to understand that pircing is not just reseverd for rouges and casters you will be ammazed on the pircing weapons aout there

good luck

Proc question
# Jan 11 2002 at 1:50 PM Rating: Decent
This may be a dumb question, but as this is the first weapon I have that procs, I was wondering if its normal for me to still get the message "Your will in not sufficient to command this weapon" almost 2/3 of the time while fighting. In other words it procs somewhere around a third of the time with the dd spell and the rest of the time I get a message instead of the the proc spell. I am a lvl 39 ranger with a piercing skill of 195 and a dex of 114. Thanks for any help on this question.
RE: Proc question
# Jan 30 2002 at 9:42 AM Rating: Decent
Well at 39, this weapon is definitely proc'ing for you. I have a 37 Ranger and mine procs, no message about my "will inst sufficient." So it can only be this: What wpn is in your other hand? If it is a SSOY, that does not proc till 40 and is prolly giving you the message. Or any other wpn that isnt procing yet. You MUST have the other wpn with a proc too, what other wpn you using? That may answer it for you.

Hope I helped.
Aggro prob
# Jan 05 2002 at 4:58 PM Rating: Decent
This is one of the best rangers, but when you're usin make sue you have a good healer in your group. In addition to snaring, now that my dh procs and next lvl when my ssoy, I'm in a world of hurt. Also I end up pulling almost constantly because of the obnoxious amount of ppl and ksing in rathe mnts. All I'm givin is a word of warning the wpn is worth if you can tank it.
RE: Aggro prob
# Jan 30 2002 at 11:02 AM Rating: Decent
I agree wholeheartedly. I wasgiven this weapon by a generous bard for nothing. just gave it to me. I ran out and got in a frost giant group in great divide. I normally use a centi short swrod in my off hand but put this in there alon with my spine chill spear as my primary. I was proc ing like crazy with this horn and my call of sky spell and the giants hated me bigtime. thnak god for the warriors tanking and taunt skill. Basically yeah be careful when you use this weapon . Your life may depend on it.

This is a great weapon excellent ratio. The proc effect is just the icing on the cake. I am currently duel weilding it with a Coldain pick (12/29 eff vellium shards).Can't wait one yellow bub left till it procs =)
DH Yak

I like this weapon, Just the look is the same as a short sword, wtf?

Nice RANGER ONLY piercer hands down, Have fun wif yours, I am wif mine ;)
Nice primary weapon
# Aug 27 2001 at 9:51 AM Rating: Excellent
Just wanted to tell every ranger out there to get one of these! And if you do, but have a crappy piercing skil, go fighting with this in the off hand till you hit about 80 in skill, then switch it to primary weapon (unless you have sumthing very much better in primary).

I have one of these in my primary, and at level 34 (as i am atm) ans piercing skill of 175 this baby is not to laugh about =) I do very fast attacks, can do up to 4x26 damage with primary before my opponent hits, or tries to hit me. Of course the 4x26 is when I am lucky, but regularly i hit between 16 and 24 dmg with it.

I was for a long time concidering to buy a wurmy, but that facts that its so heavy, im a wood elf, and of its cost, i decided not to, and save for a CSS or a lupine dagger instead. After all, this yak is good way up in the 40's and makes an excellent combo with by SSoY in off hand. The ykesha effect doesnt make it less desirable either :-)

My word to the young ones: Save for this weapon! Dunno what it usally go for, but I got mine for 500pp (the prices on allakhazam's are terrible wrong at many cases) Ya, and dont forget thats its RANGER ONLY! :-)

RE: Nice primary weapon
# Jan 30 2002 at 9:54 AM Rating: Decent
A little help on Dual wielding this with a SSOY. Zenofex, you posted that you use this in Primary hand and SSOY in off hand. BIG Mistake. You need to switch them, anyone know why? DELAY! With the 8/23 in primary and 8/24 in off hand you have a delay problem. Starting your first round, DW checks secondary wpn and swings it based on your DW skill, BUT when your primary wpn (8/23) cycles, your secondary wont be ready to swing, so it won't, it has to wait till primary cycles again. You should always have the faster weapon in the off hand, that way both wpns get a chance EVERY round. Keeping the delays close helps a lot. Try switching them, see if you get more hits in, you will.

This all assumes you are pre lvl 50. once you hit lvl 50, if your DW skill is maxxed, as it will be if you have fast weapons, both hands are independent. But that doesnt happen pre lvl 50.

I hope this all makes sense, if unclear, read posts under the Wurmslayer, many more detailed posts.

I have to agree. I loved mine when I was a little ranger duel wielding with a yak club. Now, I use a Fluxbladed Axe.

A wurmy isn't so bad when ye are a ranger. :-) I'm a wood elf ranger and I cast invigor to compensate.

another sweet combo
# Aug 02 2001 at 9:15 AM Rating: Decent
another sweet combo for rangers below lvl 45 is the Glowing Black Sword and the DH yak. the 20dex helps the yak in the off hand and the ratio is good. just watch out after 45 when the sword procs ^_^ i used this combo myself and found the damage better than the Wurmslayer/DH combo and much less draining. Wurmslayer is a fine weapon, but as a ranger, the taunt value is important. WS on quellios are a lil cheaper than GBS too, so pick one up too. ill continue my testing and report other fine ranger combos as i find them. also sorry bout the double post below, im new to this posting ^_^
RE: another sweet combo
# Nov 16 2001 at 4:31 PM Rating: Default
I managed to buy a GBS off of some guy in EC who gave it to me for 500pp. He said it goes for a bunch more but I only had like 650pp and he hadn't had any other offers and wanted to ditch it so he practically gave it to me. It's a 8/22 dex+20 and I use it with my Wakizashi of the frozen skies that I about traded my left kidney for. The wak is a 6/22 proc's a 81dd spirit strike at level 20. I use GBS in primary cause higher damage and I still have the wak proc five times in a fight sometimes. A yak might be a better wep when you get to it's level for proc'ing but I'm only 22 so it'll be awhile.
RE: another sweet combo
# Aug 19 2001 at 12:15 AM Rating: Decent
i haven't looked at glowing black sword to see stats but instead of having high dex for sword to proc... why don't you just have the dragonhorn yak in primary (lower delay) and another yak in secondary, the Dragon horn is gonna start procing sooner 36 and then they will both be going off at 37. If you can get your hands on a wurmmy drop a yak and pick that one up, damage is the bottom line, not taunt. Rangers are casting at least 2 spells at close range, taunt is not much of an issue, you can taunt so much that it will only attack you no matter how much warrior with higher ac tries to taunt, this is good for reverse kiting with partner... not much else. Just be careful is what i'm trying to say.
selling one

Hello, I am selling one of these fine weapons on the Quellios server. price is negotiable, trades accepted of course. Mostly im looking for a ranger helm of similar value. send me a tell, my name is Jamiel, and we'll work something out.
Nice weapon, but looks retarded when equiped
# Jul 25 2001 at 3:34 PM Rating: Default
This weapon is great when u are high enough for it to proc, I think=). If you are under the proc level, dont waste your money. 1k is alot of bling bling. You could get yourself a nice weapon like a ebony bladed sword, icetooth, icyblade, or a whip of strangulation...each around 400 or less. I know because I'm lvl 29, and I owned the Dragonhorn yak and every weapon I listed except that icyblade. Why can't I find an icyblade...grrrrrrr. And the worst part, horn yak looks like crap. Why is such a great weapon look so freaking gay??? spend 1k for a nice stat weapon, but when you use it..people be asking why are you using a rusty sword.
Very good.. indeed
# Jul 19 2001 at 8:05 AM Rating: Default
i got one of these at level 3.... i am the luckiest badassed ranger on MT

and i agree that you should keep all skills maxed... i didn't practice any blunt skills and im paying the price now *blush*
Wurmy for Rangers
# Jul 17 2001 at 1:39 AM Rating: Decent
I had a friend give me a Wurmslayer and Dragon Horn Ykesha when he quit the server. I've found it to be an awesome pair of weapons. Drains the stamina quick, but the damage you can dish out with duel wield and double attack far more than makes up for it. Just my opinion.
RE: Wurmy for Rangers
# Jul 18 2001 at 11:05 AM Rating: Decent
I agree with this combo. I have been testing a ton of different weapons and at level 38 I am seeing this doing about 250 points per minute more than my SoS Lammy combo and 150 - 175 per minute more then the Lammy Yak combo. Sure the Wurmy will tap out your stamina but last I checked I have the spell invigor for such trivial annoyances. Maybe one of the Keys is the FBSS to take the % delay off of the Wurmy (Percent haste favors slower delays) Anyway If you dont like the slower delays that is your preference and maybe next level when I get Call of Sky my perceptions will change to a faster weapon for more procs. For right now math facts rule the day.
Why Wurmslayer ?
# Jul 13 2001 at 1:49 PM Rating: Default
Wurm slayer is horrible for us rangers do people ever pay attention to others in battle ? I can hit 3 or 4 times at average of 22-40 not to mention the 75dot proc , within the time frame of a wurm hitting once at anywhere from 35-80 with no stat buffs . The Yak is considerably cheaper and better ! Wurm may be good for those war with hi stamina but we rangers have speed on our side my fav. combo so far is spinechill spear and yak =-) I compared these results to a ranger with a wurm and a yak at same lev and stats , WURM=BAD ranger gear hehe =-

dumb noob questions
# Jul 08 2001 at 12:10 AM Rating: Decent
Okay, i'm not very good at math, but i was wondering about damage bonuses and stuff like that, and how it works, should fastest be OFFHAND or main? would wurmslayer/lammy be a bad idea (altho they are amzing, i mean by the rule, my friend has them, i'm the poor ranger) and also haste. i have one of these fine weapons, but i dunno if i should go out and buy a qurmy or get my EBW if fastest goes in mainhand, i ahvent stopped to look at this stuff, i just play :)

# Jan 05 2002 at 4:53 PM Rating: Decent
If you do have to choose between dam and dly, you want dam in main hand, dly in off. And at 33, lammy and wurmy would be a god like combo, just be rdy to repeatedly unless you have a good cleric, cause aggro will never leave you. I know, I have dh yak and ssoy and it takes forever to get mobs off me. Other stuff you gotta watch out for is snaring, nuthin pisses off a mob more than not lettin it run.

i got one of these 2 days ago from a 60archmage selling one for 700p i ended up trading my ssoy for it and im actually pretty happy with the horn because it seems to proc more than the 1hs version. The only problem i have is i didnt train my pierce so i ended up using 40trainin points on pierce but other than that good weapon =)

I twinked my Ranger before i started to play him (not well but better than cloth right?). I gave him the BA Longsword, Velium Etched Stone Mace, and the Crystal Grinder in hopes that one day i would get a weapon worth mention...Today i got my DH Yak at level 21, All that while i was keeping 1hs, 1hb and piercing maxed, THANK GOD! This weapon is beutiful, I am so glad that piercing was up to par. Now i get a new supprise at level 36 when it starts procing. WOOT!
Dragon Horn Yekesha
# May 11 2001 at 5:27 PM Rating: Default
I bought one for 500pp on the Ayonae Ro server. I am level 43 and am having a tough time deciding between a wurn slayer and this weapon. I use a icy blad in the other hand and think it works great. It is a 75 point proc of yekesha (dd). It is becoming more regular to see these around (as it is with alot of weapons).

RE: Dragon Horn Yekesha
# May 26 2001 at 5:25 PM Rating: Default
I'd have a harder time deciding to put this or the icy in the primary hand. I have noticed a slight damage output increase after puting my icy blade in my primary hand, and the DHY in the second hand. Not a terribly signifigant increase, but one that I think is there.
