Dmg Bonus

I just noticed that my Bard's Centi has a damage bonus of 1 and the picture one showsa damage bonus of 8. What happened, nerfed again?

Nah, no nerf - damage bonus isn't a fixed value. It varies with level and weapon, possibly class and others. In other words, using the Centi LS your bard had a damage bonus of 1, the one taking the screenshot had a damage bonus of 8, and another person may have a bonus of more than 8.

I have 205 stamina and my fatigue (yellow) bar still goes down a LOT. I have a Centi LS and Green Jade Broadsword (i traded a centi ls for GJB and i kick myself for it everytime i log on). Like, after one battle my stamina is down at least depending on length of battle. Most times its at like 2 bubs or less. I'm kinda wondering why. Anyone know? Another question. Is DEX what helps you hit more often? Cause i miss very often, probably more often than i should. I only have 94 or 93 dex tho, so i guess dex is what makes you hit. Can anyone confirm please? One more thing, I know for a fact Centi SHORT SWORDS ARE LORE, because i tried to buy 2 before and it didnt work. I also know i used to have 2 Centi LONG SWORDS which both were NOT lore, but i also had those 2 LS's before the nerf. I spend a lot of time in the bazaar, and I've yet to see a LORE centi LONG SWORD. Maybe i should look again, but i really dont think Centi LONG SWORDS are lore, i think they just nerfed the drop rate on them really bad. And to the one who said LS's are 500-600pp on your server, i despise your luck =P If anyone can answer any of my questions, I would be VERY greatful.

hi great warrior and you are right dex does help u hit as a war also know as a meat shield you need good dex to deal out the damage and by the way to help your ac and reduce your dmg u need agi that helps u dodge or just get missed ingeneral u need both dex and agi over 100 if not over 130
RE: Help please!
# Dec 01 2002 at 4:41 PM Rating: Good
if your stamina is over 100 then there is no negative side effects of having your stamina bar drop. dex does not affect how often you hit, your level in the weapon skill does, dex affects how often you get weapon procs and critical hits, and this whole lore centi longsword thing bugs me to no end, i own both a Centi Short Sword which is lore, and a Centi Longsword which is not..the lore on the Shor Sword is why they are so cheap.
I'm looking to get one
# Nov 25 2002 at 7:38 PM Rating: Good
As a Shadowknight of Iksar origins i have not yet worked on my faction for epic but i have kept my 2hs maxed i would like to also keep my 1hs maxed so when i get the Greenmist the skill isnt week. Could someone tell me if this weapon would be worth my time of should i just do the wurmy quest?
I dont know which is better .. The wurmy at ratio 1.6 seems good i mean 25 40 in a primary is great but i have heard of a dmg cap of 100 for this weapon. any truth to that?
Now at 1.928 ratio 14 27 that seems pretty good to me and i have heard of people hitting for 160 or more with this weapon.. any truth to that?? i just want to know witch on is the better money/time investment. any help is appreciated. please email me or post

Can someone explain why this has only a slightly better dmg/dly ratio than the Centi Shortsword, and slighty better stat bonuses, but sells for around five times as much? Is it because it is rarer, or because the Centi Shortsword is on the low side of the part of the price/benefit curve, right before prices start shooting up exponentially?
RE: Price/ratio?
# Oct 29 2002 at 12:50 PM Rating: Decent

Because the centi shortsword is much more common, and it is lore. Once you buy one, what do you wield in the other hand? Also, stamina=hp, which for warriors is one of their most important stats.

Plus, some people like the graphic of it. Personally, I think it is overdone, and prefer my lammy/veno axe combo.

RE: Centi
# Oct 14 2002 at 11:09 AM Rating: Default
The Centi LS used to be non-Lore. Verant nerfed it, so all the ones that drop now and have been dropping since about 3 months after Luclin came out, are Lore. ME, right after Luclin came out was dropping these and other stuff like mad. The market got to many of these, because they weren't Lore, you could carry tons, and sell um off. In making them Lore, Verant tryed to fix their ME *****-up. ME has been nerfed more times than you can count, because they could never get the drops just right. Now everything in ME drops fairly rarely (except some of the NO DROP stuff).

Perhaps some of you that have these LORE centi Longswords have not read farther down the page.

I have offered 2000pp and an Acrylia plate BP (pick your size)on the Rodcet Nife server to anyone, on any regular server, who shows me a lore Centi LS. I will even create a character on your server, just to see it.

So far no takers. The offer has been out since Early September. COuld it be that I am not offering enough to entice someone to spend 3 minutes to show me one???

Or...... is it that, at this current time, there are no lore ones.

If there are lore Centi LONG swords then why isnt the bazaaar overrun with them and why don't they show up in the Magelo database? You can find the lore and non lore versions of the Circlet of Shadows there and players uploads drive the database... I have yet to see a lore LONG sword or anyone who can produce other than an "I have a friend whose brother's girlfriend's cousin knows a guy whose wife's friend just got one". Just a ploy to drive the price up. :( Lucky I bought mine for 900 pp before the mass hysteria hit.

I have seen, and used, a Centi Longsword that was lore. Shortly after Luclin came out the Centi weapons were being mass farmed, and seemed to be a common drop from what I saw in East Commons, so Verant changed them to being Lore items. From what I have seen in the bazaar since it appears that the lore tag has since been dropped from the Longsword and it has been made a much rarer drop. The lore longswords may no longer exist but they did at one time.
Damage bonus
# Sep 11 2002 at 1:48 PM Rating: Default
Ok...please someone explain to me what a Damage bonus is. Another thing that i dont get is the RED numbers in the stats i see sometimes...what are they??? thx alot.
RE: Damage bonus
# Sep 13 2002 at 10:21 AM Rating: Default
Damage Bonus is level dependent as is the numbers in red whenever ther eis a number in red those are decreased because you are too low. Once you hit recomended level you will get the full dmg and or resists bonus's.
RE: Damage bonus
# Sep 26 2002 at 4:48 PM Rating: Default
Damage Bonus works as follows:
fractions are dropped.

Essentially, you get 1 point of DB every 3 levels starting at 28.

Hope this helps

This is correct for 1 handed dmg bonus. The bonus on 2 handed weapons is based both on your level and the delay of the weapon.

I have been hunting in AR for the past couple of weeks and have yet to see any Centi Ls's drop. But the other centi weapons still drop in AR. The short sword, warhammer and warspear do still drop but are lore. Do the Centi ls's only drop in ME now? Or do they drop at all??

No Centis are NOT lore, I finally was able to get my hands on one yesterday and they most certainly are not. BTW *points to his last post* am doing soemwhat better now, managed to get some crusty.... some validus and a spider fur belt, and a couple decent rings but I could still use assistance. I am in NO way asking for anything free, am simply looking for good deals on gear such as good warrior, shammy and rogue armour and weapons (a lammy specifically) not to mention jewelry and tomes and the like.

I am on Karana Server known as Talamorf, Serawolf and Serabande. If you do manage to give me a hand, I and my guild (The Tempters of Imagination) would be in your debt.
RE: are they lore?
# Sep 04 2002 at 1:02 PM Rating: Default
You're half right, if memory serves me. Centis were not lore, and those Centis are still NOT lore. But the Centis that dropped after the patch ARE lore. So what you have is NERFED and NON-NERFED.

That's the myth. however, there are no lore swords. Find someone who looted one TODAY. its not lore. If they ever were tagged as lore, it probably was by mistake one patch, and was removed quickly. personally, I never saw a lore longsword. I think someone got confused with the shortsword, which is lore.
RE: are they lore?
# Sep 11 2002 at 6:04 PM Rating: Decent
i believe there was a period of 3 days where these were lore, the mistake was found and ALL Centi Longswords were edited back to their original NON LORE version.

so short and sweet CENTI LONGSWORD IS NOT LORE!

The reason you are here begging on this board is because you play three chars at once. My suggestion is, focus on one char and get them to 50 ASAP. That way the gear you are struggling with now is easily atainable.

Greetings to my fellow Karanians. I'm Talamorf KrisBlade from the Karana server. A while back before the Lucilin updates ahd come I was doing quite well for a new player, I'd beena round for about 3 months I believe and in that time had earned an obscene amount of money and what could only be consider "uber" gear but when the patches came, I was locked out and lost my corpses. Well, I'm sort of back on my feet but I am ahving an impossible time getting what I need to survive. I can not afford to buy lucilin right now, and because I do not have Lucilin I am screwed for finding what I need.. everyone is at the bazaar and I am not. So.. if anyone could help me out by contacting me if you have any good warrior, shaman or rogue gear for sale at cheap or moderate prices. I'd apreciate it greatly. Thank you for your time. PS: WIlling to trade my Wurmy for a Centi LS.
What's better combo??

I am currently using a Defiance/Centi LS. Defiance is the same dam/speed ratio (9/19) but has 8 dex instead of 6 sta and an ac10. The answer to your question is yes your damage output would be higher. This is because the Centi does more damage then Lamentation. Make sure the Lamentation is equiped in your primary hand. With a haste item, you become a veritable cuisinart (couple that with someone casting speed on you as well). Hope this helps some.

Centi LS does more damage in SECONDARY than a lammy. That is very true. Because there are no lvl or str based attack bonuses to secondary hand, so ratio is everything. In primary, a faster weapon like lammy is better, not JUST for taunt, but because it does more damage. You get a lvl 45 melee, and add in their level based bonus, and the strength bonus, especially if a large race, and the lammy ends up with a better damage per second than the centi.

This is why people recommend lammy/centi rather than centi/centi.

Wow, I'd like to trade about 200pp worth of low level gear for one of these too. And while I'm at it, I'd like to trade a couple polished steel ulaks for a cobalt breastplate.

C'mon, this is a 2k weapon, get a centi SHORT sword. Pair it with a velium short blade (if you dual wield), and you'll be doing fine for cheap, until you can actually afford one of these.

I bought a centi short sword from the bazaar for 250. The stats you stated are for the short sword. The long sword stats stated above I can only assume are correct since the bazaar price for the longsword has been between 1900 and 2000 pp from what I saw so far.

Just to clear things up, there ARE lore centi Longswords. I see them for sale all the time.
before the patch, all centi ls's werre not lore, after, they were going to make them lore, but some people were dual-weilding them. so they decided to make only centi's that dropped henceforth would be lore. hell, even go to bazaar, type in centi, then see how many of them are lore. they ARE OUT THERE!! hell, I used to own one.

Show me one, any server, any time. I'll create a character just to see it, and then I'll give you 1000 pp on rodcet nife for showing me. This offer is open to anyone who wishes to accept (first person to do so, obviously). I've never seen one, and practically live in the bazaar, I've been buying and reselling centi LS since day one, and NEVER have I seen a lore one. Short sword, yes, longsword, no.

Hmm, a month later, and still no takers. Guess all those guys with LORE ones are so rich that 1000pp doesn't interest them.

Ok, how about 2000pp

AND I'll throw in an acrylia plate BP.

Bet I still don't get any takers.


because nobody has a lore one to show me :)

I bought my Centi LS pre bazaar for 1k on the Tunare server. A month or so later I keep hearing how it's been nerfed to be lore. Lo and behold the price starts skyrocketting. Pretty good scam eh? I am surprised at the gullibility of some. Folks will even argue that it is now lore but I have yet to have anyone show me one. It seems to be the old "My brother's girlfriend's sister's friend knows a guy who's mother's uncle's son knows a girl whose boyfriend saw one so it's true" Rubbish! It was just a ploy to raise the price and all these suckers fell for it.
