on May 3rd, 2002. It was *not* lore. I do not believe they have ever been lore. I have yet to find a person selling one with a LORE tag that will allow you to inspect the sword in a trade window. I vote for "rumor to drive the price up".

IS this what I sind up for when I started EQ?
# May 06 2002 at 6:26 AM Rating: Decent
Geeze, I've only been playing eq for a little bit. In fact my charachter B date (Tanlaen) is March 16 2002. I'm a Ranger and now I'm at Level 27 and I want to buy one of these Centi LS. I'm apalled to find people are charging 3kP for them. I have to ask why? I skrimped and scrounged and saved to afford one of these. Sure occasionally a high level charachter would give me a weapon that would be worth a little and I would go sell it, but I never begged people to give me stuff, it just came to me. That's the nice thing about EQ sometimes you can find somebody that is great and likes to help people out. You know what? I often times help other people out too. I go back to Gfay and buff, heal, and give weapons away to Newb's for free. Sure it may only be fine steel, or bronze weaponery but it's what I've got and it's better than newb stuff. A centi LS is worth what you pay for it, but I'm not stupid. I'm not going to pay anything over 1.5kp for this, Why? it isn't worth it. At least not to me, like that guy said before auction them for all you want, but remember what it was like being a NEW charachter. REMEMBER how hard it was to get items and to do damage, and maybe you'll realize how unreal your offers are.

*I'm a Ranger and now I'm at Level 27 and I want to buy one of these Centi LS. I'm apalled to find people are charging 3kP for them.*

This attitude is what makes playing these games in the long run tedious...newer players think they have a "right" to better end items and that higher players "should have to" help out lower levels. The Centi LS is a great weapon and worth every bit of 3k and back in the day before all the expansions you could not even attain a 1h slasher that good much less that cheaply if it was available.
No one in the game owes you anything junior. When it came out there were no guides, mssg boards or spoiler sites with the answers and folks didnt sit around all day asking for help and begging for items better than their level could attain. They went out explored, learned and saved. As the other guy said, anyone with Centi at 27 is equipping WAY above his level. I dont care how much he payed for it and until you can reach those levels and attain said items I suggest you never cry about how much pp it takes you to get gear that you are nearly 25 levels to low to get for yourself!

Amen indeed......though I am a relative newcomer.

I actually look forward to the EQ2 model in which items will have a higher chance to "break" if equipped on too low level a char.....but then I'm old enough to have been playing these games since the "beginning" and have the strange idea that it's the adventure and not the items we play for.....or is it supposed to just be a colorful chat room?

This kind of attitude just bugs me to no end. This guy says:

"but remember what it was like being a NEW charachter. REMEMBER how hard it was to get items and to do damage, and maybe you'll realize how unreal your offers are"

Yes, I remember what it was like when I was a new character. Back when a Wurmslayer would sell for 6000pp, and a sword with a 2 ratio, and stats like this would be a 20k item. I remember saving up 500pp to buy a wraith bone hammer for my cleric, and thinking I was well equipped when I got my Sol Ro quest BP. All the old world/kunark and Velious mobs are still the same level of difficulty as they were back then, but now the average level 5 has better equipment than my cleric did at 30, because high level characters give them stuff that used to be great equipment, and now doesn't sell. So then they complain that the stuff that is the new "Gold Standard" for weapons is overpriced.

Give me a break. A level 27 with dual centi LS is probably a twink. Get a centi shortsword, and a centi warhammer. The pair shouldn't cost you over 700-800pp, and you'll still be better equipped than most non-twinked warriors were "when I was a new character."

#REDACTED, Posted: May 08 2002 at 6:22 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Whoa, First off I never said I had dual Centi LS. I only wanted to buy a Centi LS (just one). Second off I already did buy a Centi SS and only wished to buy ONE Centi LS, not two(just one). And it's some high level chars like you that annoy me. A 44 pally who I bought the Centi SS from sent me into the middle of the dreadlands to get it, he didn't want to meet me half way. Not to mention when I got there he jacked the price up and forced me to trade my Cracked Darkwood shield for it as well. Which mind you I worked very hard to get just like my PGT. And my 1h Blunt isn't great, infact I've never used a blunt weapon so I wasn't going to bother beefing up my skill. I'm sorry to hear that EQ was so hard when it first came out. But look at your last post you sound like an old cranky geezer that can't let go of the past. Luclin has brought in alot of good weapons, so you better change with the times. I'll have you know I worked very hard to get enough money to buy my Centi LS (Just one. I'd get tooo tired duel wielding these) and I finally got one for 1070 PP, a 10slot 10% Reduction back pack and a Frozen long sword. This I thought was a fair trade and my centi works as good as I dreamed it would. Your obvioulsy tooo old to be playing EQ, retire and by EQII when it comes out, I'll still be having fun with this one.

You seem to miss my point (big surprise). You're sitting here whining about the fact you had to save up for a weapon that is way overpowered for your level, and you're upset that someone who could actually get the weapon, wants a decent amount for it. Do you have any idea how hard the mobs are that drop this? Or how rare a drop it is, compared to the short sword? Didn't think so. I suppose next you'll be compaining that some mean "Old guy" wants over 20,000pp for his fungi tunic, and you should be able to trade the crap other players gave you for that as well.

BTW, you should be training all of your skills up, you'll regret it later if you don't.

And as far as "being too old to play EQ" at least I don't have to play on my Daddy's account, sonny.
#REDACTED, Posted: May 09 2002 at 4:17 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Man you get pretty fired up about this game. You should talk to a therapist about it I dont' think it's healthy. If you want a bio on me I'm 18 I pay my own account, from my own credit card, that's bill is paid each month by me with the money I work for at my job :) Oh and I go to college on top of everything and have a 3.0. And I pay for college myself too! So no my daddy dosent cover anything, infact my dad left my family when I was two, so please keep things to the game and leave my family out of it, you don't know them.

To quote your second post:

"But look at your last post you sound like an old cranky geezer that can't let go of the past"

Now your third post:

"so please keep things to the game and leave my family out of it, you don't know them"

Now, who was it that let their comments wander outside the realm of EQ? You want others to avoid personal comments about you, try doing the same.

Also, go back to your original rant, read what you said there, then come back, and look at this last quote of yours:

"Man you get pretty fired up about this game. You should talk to a therapist about it I dont' think it's healthy."

Perhaps you should take your own advice!

Hey guys, EQ is a free Market, as such, you can be in character and rant and rave all you want, but the real life answer is its worth what you pay for it. Talked to someone yesterday, who paid 140pp for one. Ran into someone who needed the pp and didnt want to hastle with EC. That day, there and then, it was worth 140pp.

If you paid 2K for one cause u wanted it, then its worth 2k. Yell rape when you are dealing or selling, but why flame over it?

My Warrior paid 4k of his hard-earned platinum for a pair of Centi Longswords, and that is *exactly* what they're worth. Why? Because that's what he was willing to pay for them. Period. Six or nine months from now Centi Longswords may be selling - left and right - for 500pp each at the Tunnel in EC (or in Gfay, or wherever) - but they'll always be worth 2k each to my boy. =)

this or lammy
# Apr 29 2002 at 4:03 PM Rating: Default
well, i did some figuring and this has a better ratio than Lammy. Also its damage bonus is 8.

Is this on top of a warriors 8 damage bonus at level 50?
at level 50 that would make a lammy 16/19 hardly any weight... .6

the centi ls would either have a damage bonus of 8 or 16, making it either 22/27 or 30/27

The only drawback is its wieght...6.5 lbs
#REDACTED, Posted: May 02 2002 at 6:08 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The centi LS doesn't have a bonus dmg of 8, thats your current dmg bonus from your level, ya moron. not only that but dmg bonuses aren't added to the ratio, its added to your overall damage output... for example, normally, the minimum you can hit for is 1pt. with a damage bonus of 8, that minimum becomes 9.

Don't sweat the small stuff, Eggworm - some people can only get their jollies by belittling and slamming others - that's their defect, not yours.

Live and Learn =)

As to whether you should get a Centi LS or a Lamentation, that's up to you. Want to do (slightly) more damage per second? Then get the Centi. Want to draw (and hold) aggro better? Then the Lammy is what you want.

My opinion (even though I have a pair of Centi's and I love them) is that aggro control is more advantagious than an extra .74 or .75 damage per second - which makes the Lamentation a better bet. That's why I'll be looking to upgrade my Centi Longswords to Lammy's, in the future.

All I was saying is that I am weilding 2 of these weaps and I Enjoy them VERY much... And Yes I did pay 1k for each got a VERY GOOD deal and with the knowledge I have now about them now I would probablly pay up to 3-4k. Thats only my 2cents... though...

Amazing the conceit people have. They seem to think they know everything about everything, and shout it loudly to anybody that will put up with them.

I have owned both lore and non-lore CLS's. I do not know if the lore models were changed, if they still drop, or what the heck was done. But I can say definatively that at one time not long ago they both existed.

Do you really believe that a co-ordinated multi-server scam exists, just for the sake of greed? Get with it. At least at one point, no more than maybe a month before this post, there were Lore and Non-Lore centi longswords existing at the same time.

What would be useful here is a post from somebody who has looted one recently who can say whether it was lore or non-lore.

Also useful would be people taking a step back from their egos and loud mouths if they do not definatively know something. Loudly expressed uninformed opinions are useless, no matter how damn important you think you are. Give it a rest and talk about what you KNOW, not what you think you know.

oh... my... god... you ppl are insane...

i have offered 10,000pp to SEE (just see, not buy) a LORE CLS. they DO NOT EXIST. after that day, i spent 3 hours on the phone with Verant's tech support, and guess what??? THEY WERE NEVER LORE! they probably WILL be eventually, but as of right now... send me a screen shot of LORE CLS. i will give you 10kpp (yes, i have it) just to SEE one, on the Seventh Hammer.

Ok, put a few skill points into reading comprehension, and try reading the original post again. If you STILL don't get it, give up, go back to comic books. BTW, the comment about conceit and uninformed opinions applies to you.

Notice: I simply said that at one time I held one of each. I am not saying they exist like that today. (maybe they do, maybe they don't..lets get an opinion from somebody who KNOWS, not loud-mouthed uninformed people like you. It should also be noted, that I'm not trying to sell a CLS, I've moved on to other weapons since then. I have nothing to gain from this. But since the issue came up, I posted an honest depiction of my experiences to try to shed some light on the issue that perhaps some reasonable person might use to gain some benefit.

NOW...who REALLY believes he offered 10k to see one? He is saying 10,000pp!!! Ok, now who REALLY believes he cared enough to spend 3 hours on hold to talk to verant about this?

Either way, one of two things can be derived from what you said. EITHER:

1) You DID NOT OFFER 10,000pp to see one and DID NOT spend 3 hours on the phone to Verant. (In this case, that would make you a flat out liar with no honor or intelligence).


2) You DID offer 10,000pp to see one and DID spend 3 hours on the phone to Verant. (In this case you are an obsessive, raving lunatic and need to get a good shrink and a life)

Out of curiosity, which one is it?

Happy Hunting, Freak.

/end sigh

An honest depiction you have not bestowed. An easy way for you to call someone an uninformed twit is what you ahve shown. If you are positive that they exist, then SOMEONE will have one.

I absolutely love this fact: Everyone who supposedly has one will SELL it for 10k pp, but NONE of them will prove there is a LORE version for 10kpp.

I have been sitting in EC or 2 weeks offering 2k JUST to see one in the trade screen ... one of the older servers in the game(E'ci) is filled with people telling me it's a joke-scam

Who do I believe? I believe no one at this moment, although I tend to lean towards the no such thing theory.

I will believe the person who puts one in my tradescreen. And that person will get 2k pp for doing it without a word.

My 2000pp worth.
RE: Don't be ignorant
# May 08 2002 at 7:49 AM Rating: Default
Ok, lets apply a little logic here. You haven't been able to pull it off, so I'll do it for you.

If it is no longer being dropped as lore, or if the item is no longer tagged as lore, nobody will be able to show you one in thier trade screen. That doesn't mean that it didn't exist like that at one time. Get it? Maybe it isn't the grand conspiracy you think it is.

Notice, I said about 3 times maybe that I AM NOT SAYING THEY EXIST. I am saying they existed at one time. Read up, you'll see it. Honest.

And really, isn't there something more important for a raging Type-A conspiracy theorist like you to get their panties in a wad over than a 2k sword? Take a deep breath, go kill a mob or something.

I hate to say it... but these posts seem to be the next scam to raise prices...
Why would someone pay 5k for this when they can get a Jagged Blade of Mourning for 3k(Or less)? (13/25 with 3ac 10 dex 10 sv magic)
I'd say 2k is fair considering how common they are and due to their heavy weight. It is also EXTREMELY difficult to compare a non-procing weapon to one that has a 149DD proc. That makes a world of difference. For example, take away the proc off of the already nerfed venemous axe of the velium brood, and it is worth 200pp IF you can sell it at all.

Holy crap you all, Who cares if there not lore or if they are... all you neubies want freggin nice *** weaps for soo cheap... this weapon is actually pretty amazing 14/27. The warriors EPIC is a 14/24 Not to far off is it... PLUS it has 8str/sta.... uhhhhh 2-3k is what it should sell for lore or non lore... its a club of the ice ocean with out a proc... and that sells for least 10k and you freaggin people wanna buy these BEAUTIFUL looking swords for 1k...Whatever you smoking pass it on cause maybe then ill see the CentiLS in your eyes... you just want to make the PC go down to 1k, all the newbs say ohh it aint worth more than 1.5k max. OK so then FIND someone ELSE to buy it from cause These swords ROCK! So all you people who want 2-5k whatever dont sell it until you get the price you want... we dont have to lie to bring the PC up just work together.... ~rar

Wurmy is very slow. It's a great weapon for a secondary melee, particularly a low strength one, but not for main tank. In fact, this is only good for offhand when you reach higher levels, since the combo of strength and level bonuses will generate nearly as much damage as weapon stats. Thats why Lammies are so popular. Wurmy has better ratio than a lammy, but for a warrior with 250 strength, and lvl 50, he'll still produce much more damage with a lammy than a wurmy, and way more taunt.

On the other hand, if you are a 98 strength hybrid class, wurmy and a shield might be the way to go.

Who the f*** would pay more than 1.5k for this thing? I bought a Centi Warspear (ratio 1.5) for 300pp. Granted, the spear IS 2Hpiercing, but 300pp is hella more cost-efficient than 10k, which is so f*** ridiculous it makes me go into convulsions every time I read this post. The only reason I would ever pay more than 1.5k for this is if, by some miracle or act of god, you managed to get your hands on a pre-nerf model. The Centi LS is by no means uber.
RE: OMG....
# May 02 2002 at 7:54 PM Rating: Excellent

What you are missing, is that the centi spear is underpriced, this is not overpriced. The spear is a common drop, and most dual wield classes don't bother with 2h weapons, particularly not piercing ones. So the market is flooded with the spears, but the centi ls is rarer drop, and everyone wants one (some want 2).

The other factor is stats. While the spear gives +5 str and sta, the sword gives +8, and you can wield 2, for a net of +16 to both. With +16 to stamina, almost any melee would be over the 100 threshhold, or close enough to get over with a piece or two of armor/jewelry.

Plus 16 str gives an increased max hit, as well as an increase to attack rating, meaning you will hit more. This really is a good sword, and 1.5k is a hell of a bargain on one. 4k is a little high, but I could see 2.5k. If you think thats too high, thats only because you KNOW that they were lower for a while, not because they are not worth it. I will agree that 10k seems way high for this, since Lammies are down to about 3k lately, and are comparable weapons, slightly better for warriors, but not necessarily anyone else.

#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 15 2002 at 1:54 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Have to agree these are easily worth more then 1.5k. The drop rate has been nerfed so prices are going up, your going to have to deal with it. Anytime I run throught the trade zone I always see someone trying to buy CLS. If you only want to pay 1-1.5k for this your going to wait for a bit.

Just make the dang things NO DROP already so I don't have to hear it anymore...

There is not a Lore Centi LS the Centi SS are lore, If i where to sell mine, i would sell for...meh 1.5-to mabye 2k. but other then that there not where so much. The only reason it seems to be worth so much is because of the look. Lammys are 9 18? 9str 9sta and on Ayenoa Ro there 2k.....? Does that make any sense at all? why would you pay 3k for a 14 27 8str sta when you could pay 2k for a 9 18 9str sta sword? Just my 2cp =) If your looking to buy on my worthless server send tell to Teraabi/Sater/Kioshi 1.6k is all im asking) later.

Skill: 1H Slashing Atk Delay: 19
DMG: 9
STR: +6 STA: +6 HP: +20
WT: 0.6

I think you might have been mixing a Jade Mage 9/18 with a Lammy and then adding +3 to both the STR and STA or something.

The reason this weapon sells for what it does is a combination of the distinctive look and the fact that it is a > 0.5 weapon with nice Str & Sta bonuses. Lamentations are still a more effective weapon for the Tanking Warrior due to the delay and dmg/time. The Centi Longsword became a status symbol for a while and is still a very nice weapon. I just wish I would have been on the side making the killing while these things were so hot rather being one who dished out money for em.

The other factor in the price is that for all dual wield slashing classes except for warriors, the centi is better in secondary. It has a better ratio (1.92) than the lammy (2.11). Also, since rogues cannot use lammies, thats not even an option for them.

The only reason a warrior might choose a lammy over this in secondary is for taunt. Other melees usually want to minimize taunt, and would select the centi.

Also, the centi is pretty nice in primary for mid levels. Unless you are very high strength, the centi will outdamage the lammy until you start to get damage bonuses. And again, you have a group (pallies) who cannot use lammy anyway, and would probably choose the centi instead, even if they could, to reduce taunt (that is, when they are using a shield, instead of 2hs).

LMAO! I can't believe there are so many greedy people out there in the world out for a quick buck. Worst part is, they have to take it into EQ. They'll do or say anything just to feed their greed.

My group and I have been AoE'ing in ME for 2 weeks now and have seen CLS drop several times and NOT one of them were lore!

They are not lore but they sure have decrease the drop rate slightly, that I have to admit.

Lore LS

To think all this time I've been looking for a lore LS because I couldn't afford a non-lore. When I first found out about Centi LS they went for 1k and a CSS was 500pp. With the lore and non-lore going around they are up to 3k. What a rip off.

The prices are going up because Verant nerfed the drop rate. I lucked out and bought one while they were still relatively plentiful, but the demand is outstripping supply. Everyone wants them, but they are rarely dropping anymore. Hopefully, the price on centis will go up to a point that the market for some of the pre-luclin weapons will be restored. I mean come on, the stats on these are incredible, and even the centi warhammer, which is disgustingly cheap, is an awesome weapon.

3k is still a bargain on the centi longsword.

ok, i think by now we have all heard of this rumor. funny dont you think? in order to satisfy my curiosity about the supposed existence of these phantom nerfed centi's i walked into the tunnel one day and sent out the following:

/shout Will pay 500pp to anyone who can show me a LORE Centi Longsword, just SHOW it to me...

you know how many i saw? none, zero, not one. until i physically see one in existance, and not just have someone tell me a guildmate has one, or the alt has one, or their mother's brother's cousin has one, as far as i am concerned THEY DONT EXIST.

btw i was actually shopping for my ranger that day, and an argument over the worth of a Centi LS sparked my offer of 500pp. 3k for a pre-nerf my ***...
Some people are just idiots!

Come on people. "IF" they were lore nore then it would go without saying that there would be tons of lore centi longswords for sell. A lot more than the any that are not lore. The simple fact that only uncomfirmed sightings and no actually auctioning of these "lore" swords should clue you in. I know any one that got one of these phantom lore swords would be selling it in a hurry (and make tons of PP) with all the "prenerf" ROFLMAO swords that are for sell right now. I mean come on! Get a clue folks.
I have seen one

I have seen a lore one on povar...I believe that they are still dropping nonlore, but moreso lore....some may say that that wouldn't happen...but then is verant we are talking about.

No, you haven't. You can't have seen something that DOES NOT EXIST. You may have seen a LORE Centi SHORTsword, which have always been LORE, but not a LORE Centi LONGsword.
Lying for Money

That is just too lame. Lying about it being lore? No wonder I couldn't find a lore Centi LS to buy. That is completely lame. People are so greedy to scam money out of people like that. Why don't you learn to make money like everyone else without ******** over others? Thats just wrong.

Whoever it was who started the rumor that centi longswords had been nerfed is very smart. They effectively managed to double price, even though everyone now knows that this isn't true. I have heard that the drop rate has been lowered as well, and this was sure to drive up the price. It wasn't enough to double the price, however. And for all most of us know, the nerf on the drop rate could be just another scheme to make more money.
And that, my friends...
# Apr 04 2002 at 10:24 PM Rating: Decent what the update on the item is today (4-11-02). Removal of the erronious "LORE" tag in the item description.

I find it amusing how many people would swear up and down that they had a LORE Centi LS on an alt, but when challenged to show proof and even offered an upwards of 5Kpp just to SHOW the sword in a trade window, they suddenly shut up or made some snide remark about not having to prove anything...

I saw a Vah Shir running around with two of these the other day on Firiona Vie, quite impresive.
