My ranger uses this in off-hand with a Frostbringer and hes currently lvl 34 and soloing giants in FM and soloing red tigers in The Overthere and they only bring me be down to two bubbles of health.So all you rangers out there, just a suggestion to grab a Frostbringer in primary and a Centi Longsword in secondary.=)

The Whole LORE thing was just a hoax. It was all a set up so someone somewhere could get 2.5k offa one of em and then everyone followed. Ya see how one person can ***** with everyone in the game?

think a 41 druid 39 rogue, 32 druid, and 41 ranger could survive long enuf in maidens eye and take out Umbrous Toiler or whatever else drops a centi LS?
RE: question...

Seriously, the drop rate on the Centi LS is now super-rare, and at your level, you would get adds left, and right.

i was wondering if i should duel this with my lammy or duel two lammy's like i am currently doing... i would like to hit a lil harder but not sure if i should give up some stats and not sure if the short delay on my lammy will make up for the lil damage it does ...any help would be nice

Who are you planning on duelling? or did you mean dual?

Seriously, the centi will outdamage the lammy offhand, but lammy is better for primary if you're the tank.

This is my humble contribution on the merits of this weapon. I dual wield these because: (1) the damage output/ratio are very good; (2) the benefits it gives match my needs (as a wood elf Ranger I need strength and stamina); (3) although the weapon isn't light, the boosts perfectly compensate for that; (4) if you can get your stamina to 100 or more, the effects of fatigue are negligible, and the sword's stamina boost helps get you there; (5) for the price you get big value from the item; and (6) as someone who is seldom the main tank, the 27 delay keeps me from drawing aggro, while not being so slow that I can't meaningfully contribute. Of course, for that last reason, someone who is a MT may have trouble with aggro control using this sword absent a haste item or spell. It doesn't hurt that it looks sweet either, but I don't buy on that basis.
whats better

RE: whats better
# Jul 20 2002 at 5:08 PM Rating: Default
ok this is fer the teaching and not some preaching...


With this being said if u are a ranger a CLS CLS combo is better then a Wurmy whatever else u use.

From what i can see i am guessing u are a warrior. The Venom axe is nice.. AC10 is also a big plus. If u are a warrior a nice combo and i still hold aggro , is a Lammy/CLS combo i hit fer 20-40's average being 30's i crit my lammy fer 40-60 and my cls fer 80-120 crippling blows are friggin cripplin to lol. So soloin has been pretty easy fer me. Anyways if u are really worrying about being MT as a warrior get another lammy.. I am a Tank assister since me being a woody elf i will never ever be able to out aggro classes with naturally stronger str since if they have the same haste as me they will outdmg me and take aggro. But being me so far with close to 2k of hp and atk of 801 and ac of 850 i am doin good at lvl 41 and kept aggro ina renzy group just fine last night and we had REALLY low lvls with us 41war (me) 43SK lvl 33 shammy lvl 47chanter lvl 34cleric and a lvl 35druid lol. Still held camp without trouble.

RE: Centi LS with Venom Axe
# Jun 29 2002 at 2:21 AM Rating: Decent
That would all depend on wether or not you want the aggro. This weapon with the ax is a good combo, but with the proc of the ax I would switch off depending on the situation. If I was MT or MA? I would carry the ax in my primary. Not only does the ax hit faster, but it also procs. Taunt is valued in procs and how many times you hit - no necessarily how much damage you do. If I didn't want aggro? Centi in primary. Just my 2 cp worth!
RE: Centi LS with Venom Axe
# Jul 20 2002 at 5:19 PM Rating: Default
no tru with my atk being 901 i and 22% haste at lvl 41 as a warrior my friend a SK who kept lifetaping lol witha 10/18 weapon he would tkae aggro. But an easy taunt would get my mob back. But and also if dmg didn't play a part how come when a rogue BS's something why does the mob start on them? If the warrior isn't dealing enuff dmg fast enuff he will lose aggro...

nerfed centi?
# Jun 12 2002 at 3:23 AM Rating: Excellent
I have gotten into many arguements on this subject. The Centi LS is not nerfed... the rumor was started by "Tunnel Rats" as they are so eliquently called on the EC'i server... The reason that this rumor was started was so these "Tunnel Rats" could jack up the price on the Centi.
# Jun 10 2002 at 7:45 AM Rating: Decent
I heard the Centi LS was nerfed...can anyone tell me what the difference between the pre-nerfed and the nerfed stats and price...taht would be very helpful...

Actually the drop rate of the sword has been nerfed slightly. It doesn't drop as often as it used to anymore.
im in it for fun.I think?
# Jun 09 2002 at 7:55 PM Rating: Decent
Hi all this my 2 cents worth. first i now own a ceti ls and at lvl39 i was doing total 63 hp best damage(im we ranger 139str),ythe low delay is great and delay.I paid 1300 pp and wak for it i conseder it a good deal on inny server.
-now for this I will be flamed I agree with the others i study allkzm here because my time is limited and cant afford to play hours on end.
- second all the people who realy flame and can only use four letter words,get alife( my opn only)
- i started to play the game for fun and adveture like when i was 15 years old and sitting around
a table playing dungoen and dragons,THE purpose of the game was to have fun go to imaginery worlds where things existed as to make u imagine you were aknight in armor fighting evil or causing it,mages etc.the whole thing agian my opinion, is to have fun make some friends and enjoy it.So flamers go to town for this humble ranger excepts all rants raves and flames,good hunting all:) oh by the by if u feel a real need to burn me im manawar on the innurk server,feel free to blastme.

The "Black Acks" are a new line of weapons similiar to the Centi line, but can be made by blacksmiths and have a nice proc too. According to the new reports coming in, Lifedraw is the proc on the new Black Acrylia weapons. Not a bad effect; let's hope it doesn't change.
Weapon                      del dam other 
Bl. Acrylia ******* Sword   30  14  +2 magic damage 
Bl. Acrylia Scimitar        22  10  +1 magic damage 
Bl. Acrylia Long Sword      25  12  +2 magic damage
Anyone interested in the Centi-type weapons might also consider the Black Acrylia weapons.

I am lucky enough to be dual weilding these, and I love them...with the haste belt I got in Hollowshade Moor I can hold taunt well and dish out a hella lot of damage. Prior to this I had a wurmy and a centi LS, and I do not miss the wurmy hehe. I miss the 170 crits, but not the speed (or lack thereof). Damn fine weapon in my opinion, and since the delay is the same on both I have a higher chance to quad hit. =) Paid 1.6k for one, traded my wurmy outright for the other.
Good luck in your hunting/purchasing!

Great Ranger weps.
# May 13 2002 at 12:03 AM Rating: Excellent
These are just plain amazing weapons for Rangers...pretty much REGARDLESS of the price.
For mid and even some high level Rangers its just about impossible to beat the damage output and great ratio these provide. The absence of a proc is almost a bonus to the Ranger class in general as aggro is usually a most UNWANTED thing.
If I had to hand pick a weapon to be dual wielded by a Ranger this would unquestionably be it. The ONLY drawback I can see is that the weight is a bit frustrating if you have any haste items or haste buffs. Heft 'em with a FBSS for example and you'll be begging zings in no time.

My advice to everyone is to get a pair. Haggle and barter, get 'em as CHEAPLY as you can...but GET EM.
I paid 2.5k for one and 3kpp for my second and you couldn't pry them from my cold dead fingers!

One final thought: I invite more ppl to follow my example and post helpful, meaningful information about the item listed above rather than engaging in a useless and HOPELESS debate. The purpose of this site and this page is to dessiminate INFORMATION about this particular item and its usefulness.

If you agree with that thought feel free to rate my post highly! If we use this site the way its designed we can eliminate these flamers.

These are great offhand swords for warriors and rogues also. Outdamage a lammy, and in secondary really don't affect taunt too much, one way of the other.

If I were playing a ranger, I would probably go with wurmslayer in primary, and Centi LS in secondary, unless you have incredibly high strength. The primary reason is less taunt, although the wurmslayer should outdamage centi LS for the average ranger with 120-140 strength, until about lvl 50 or so. Even with high strength, I'd be tempted to keep wurmy, again because of taunt.

ginally someone else besides me telling a range... pls put down the 2 lammys or the lammy /lupine and get out of my way so i can hold aggro.. hehe as a warrior there is nothing more then i hate is to see a ranger trying to out taunt me hehe besides rangers are jolters and crowd control. Also a wurmy cls combos is awesome fer a ranger
Best Value : Centi LS or Centi SS

Ok, I can get a Centi SS for about 1/3 the price of a Centi LS. Obviously the Centi LS is better if pp is not an issue, but I am thinking of saving the 1K and buying the Centi SS and putting the savings towards a Haste item (FBSS maybe). Any opinions on which is the "best value"???
RE: Best Value : Centi LS or Centi SS
# Jul 09 2002 at 1:22 PM Rating: Decent
Of couse this is totally dependent on your character and what role you play, but here is my example. I passed on the LS to save the 1k. I tend to mix it up on what I wield, but I typically wield the Centi SS 12/25 and a Sarnak Skullplitter 12/26. I also have FBSS. I have been very happy with my choice so far. I may still get a Centi LS to dual with the SS, but for now I am quite satisfied. My switch is Wurmy/Centi SS. I won't swear to this, but I seem to do more damage with the Centi SS/Sarnak SS than with the Wurmy/Centi SS. I would attribute this to the speed, but like I said, no hard study done. BTW - I'm a half-elf Ranger and the Warrior I group with can keep taunt fine as long as I don't try and get it from him. We partner quite a bit and it works out well with us being able to share aggro to keep the mob swinging for misses back and forth. So all that rambling to say - I'd go with the Centi SS and save the 1k. You can always change your mind later.

Ok, I started this BICKERING about the Centi LS for a couple reasons... 1. The Rareity, 2. The Dmg/Dly COMBO, Plus the Stats, 3. Its amazing how the people who say "its not that grate" are the same people who /auction WTB CentiLS, 4. SSoY back about 2yrs ago used to be UBER as hell and sold for 4-5k... PoS now-a-days, so if your gonna call that post and "old geezer who needs to quite EQ" Hes probably one of the people who have been playing since BETA so dont talk sh*t about a game that you "just started.", and im sure he rembers when SSoY was uber as hell... This weapon id good period it looks AWESOME, Has Great dmg/dly/stats and EVERYONE wants to buy one. Its supply the CentiLS DEMAND your PRICE you want... But please, please DO NOT go around posting that this weapon is not that good and only worth 1-2k so you can hope the PC goes down and get yours cheap Trust me i tried to do it for the wurmy i wanted SOO bad... IT DOESNT WORK!!! WE the high lvl people are the ones who are looting and selling these weaps if you want one and cant get one from us for 1-2k you can either start looking for a diff weap of wait 2-3years like we all had to, to get the PC Down, or go to AR and try and loot one BAHHHHHHHH!!!!
P.S. EQ is not an economy and no CS is worth 45pp there and then (or whatever price you said) and there is such thing as a PC!

RE: Im gonna GAG!!!!
# Jun 14 2002 at 4:40 PM Rating: Decent
If youve been playing for so long u should know pc is around 1k, it is a great weapon ur right but i see these sold nightly starting at 1200pp witch can easily be talked down to 1k on Rallos-Zek
