MY warrior has one of these as well. I switch between it, the cent-ss, and the axe of frost.

This seems to be the extremely common drop now, off the Centi's... everyone who camps there for the CLS/CSS (and their grandmothers) have one, let many others rot, and now they're all in the bazaar... I've seen them go as low as 15pp, regular range is 25-40pp (with the occasional nut trying to sell for 300pp), on Vazaelle. They drop way too commonly to be worth anything more, like the Iksar Scaled Gloves. Nowadays, instead of being an upgrade to the MoTQ (for pallies, at least), this should be your first real 2hp purchase. Very cheap, nice ratio, and some stats to boot.

Just don't neglect your other weapons skills, even if you have to switch to a weapon with a worse ratio, it'll be worth it later on. (Yes, that even includes warriors working on your 2hb :P)
Very good weapon for up until level 40

This is one of the most under-priced, under-appreciated 2H'd weapons in the game at the moment. Currently selling on Morell-Thule for 10p to 100p (most are 20-25) it is a weapon that holds aggro well and dishes out the damage. A very good and cheap weapon to hand out to newbies when you find them. Granted, with the damage cap, you're not going to see full damage numbers until level 25/28; but a delay of 30 mitigates that somewhat.

To give you an idea of how this stacks up, take a look at modal damage values for a 45 Shadowknight:

1.400 1HS 25/40 Wurmslayer
1.487 2HS 24/39 BABS
1.517 1HB 19/29 MOSS
1.667 2HP 20/30 Centi Warspear
1.673 2HS 33/49 Argent Defender
1.775 2HB 30/40 Deathbringer's Rod
2.000 2HP 30/35 Etched Velium War Lance
2.041 2HS 42/49 Argent Protector
2.275 2HS 40/40 Reaver

I was in walking out of the Bard guild when this guy shouted "who wants a centi warspear" evry1 was like "me, me, me" and i just stopped, turned around, hailed him and got it. I was hoping my rogue could use it but then i looked at it and i was like crap. So I'll eaither sell it or give it 2 my friend 4 his SK.

How do people in the middle of nowhere know about God?
My first centi...

Ah , I bought this in the Bazaar last night for 50pp, there were 36 of them for sale between 100pp and 200pp. This is my first uber weapon and I LOVE IT!!!

P.S. I know what a newbie is, (thats me), what is a BLUEBIE?

I just picked this up off a vendor in Shadowhaven for 8pp and some change! It will be a nice item for my warrior. Damn high lvls don't know what to do with overstocks hehe.

Explain to me why a weapon that has Rogue Dream weapon written on it, is not usable by a rogue?

Also, this is a 2h piercer. I don't believe rogues get the ability to use that weapon type. If it was a normal 1h piercer, the ease to get it would make it way overpowered :p

Well, lets see, a 20 damage, 30 delay weapon, that drops in a relatively easy zone, and drops like candy. Now, a rogue with a 15 damage weapon is almost unstoppable, and backstabs like a caster nuking. If a rogue could use this, it would give them an almost insane advantage over other melees.

This was thrown in to give a decent piercing weapon to the listed melee classes, so they would even bother to train the skill. It's not working. Note that on Rodcet Nife, these bad boys sell for under 200pp. When you consider that the ratio is 1.5, thats almost insane.

If rogues could use them, you'd have all lvl 21 rogues running around seriously outdamaging wizards, and thats just not right. They would have to move this to thex val, and make it incredibly rare and lvl 60 only, and it would still be unbalancing.
Can i get one?

centi ws or mith 2hs
# Mar 20 2002 at 3:37 PM Rating: Default
ok im trying to make a decision here. i dont know whether to have my SK use the centi warspear (stats up there ^^) or a mithril 2hander (21 40 2hs w/ haste). plz re.
please stay on the line. your call is valuable to us.
RE: centi ws or mith 2hs
# Aug 16 2002 at 10:21 AM Rating: Decent
If you have another haste item (e.g., FBSS), it won't stack with the Mith2H since it already has item haste, but it will with the Centi Spear.

Ratio including haste % on the Mith2h is slightly better, and the Mith2h haste applies to secondary attacks (kick for Warriors, for instance).

At the current Bazaar prices I've seen (50p for the spear, 300 for the Mith2h) the spear is a better bargain.

I'd agree with the guy who says both. In actuality, the ratio including haste on the mithril is about the same as the centi. However, the stats on the warspear give it the edge. I would use it most of the time, but swap in the mithril to keep skill maxxed each level. Keep in mind that there are some REALLY nice 2hs weapons availiable to SK's. Abram's axe of the stoic, for example. I'm not sure on SK epic, but if it is 2hs, thats another reason.
RE: centi ws or mith 2hs
# May 05 2002 at 6:59 PM Rating: Default
i'd use the mith.. it has 31% haste which makes it like a 21/31 weapon (haste formula: delay/100%+haste% -> 40/100%+31% = 30.5 ~ 31)
RE: centi ws or mith 2hs
# Apr 30 2002 at 4:42 PM Rating: Excellent
My recommendation is to keep both the Mith and Centi. Why? because the are for different types of melee: 2HS and Piercing. It's good to have both of those up.

very easy centi warspear
It kicks
# Feb 20 2002 at 1:39 PM Rating: Decent
I"m i lvl 20 warrior, And now i hit for 48dmg all the time. I got a crit once with this weapon that was 76dmg. for me this weapon kicks. You take less dmg from dmg sheilds and do more. I can solo most yellows and whites are no problem. in groups even without speed buffs the monsters go down befor i have a chance to get another one.
Good ratio
# Feb 10 2002 at 1:15 PM Rating: Decent
My warrior loves this weapon. The dmg/dly ratio is awesome along with the stats on it and the look is pretty neat. great weapon to practice peircing with.

Man, bout the 3rd centi weapon i have on top of my centi ss and warhammer. like water on a rainy day. It's going to be qute the show when verant pulls out it's nerf stick.
# Jan 29 2002 at 6:48 PM Rating: Default
Why can't rogues use this??? Who's the piercer for Norrath if it's NOT the rogue? Verant, stop sitting on your brain and distibute the weapons to the proper classes!

If you think a bit harder about this...1 hand piercer is rapier, dagger, stilletto etc...i.e. perfectly suited to BS'ing by Rogues, but a 2 handed piercer is more in the line of a jousting weapon used by Paladins, Warriors (knights of old) and SK's (anti-paladins maybe?) from horse back...Just you try to sneak up behind an enemy and BackStab them with a 20 foot jousting lance! ;-)
# Feb 04 2002 at 4:36 PM Rating: Decent
Hey get your head on right it's a 2 hand piercing since when could rogues use 2 hand piercers?
# Feb 10 2002 at 10:24 PM Rating: Decent
actually rogues could always use 2hp's. all pierce weaps fall under one skill since there are so few 2 handers.
# Feb 10 2002 at 1:10 PM Rating: Decent
Would be a BS from a mile away maybe? Would be sweet as hell if rogues could use this but since when where rogues the 2 handed weapon type?
# Mar 04 2002 at 2:00 PM Rating: Excellent
You guys that wish you had this for a rog, must not play a rog or not had a HIGH as in 13 dmg Backstabbing weapon. IF you get much over 13 DMG, in higher level fights you will get so much agro that you will in essence kill yourself and probably the party since the cleric will try to heal you and waste mana on you instead of the tank. A rog is best if they deal constant damage hit for big damage and 13 to 14 DMG weapon is big damage, with out gaining agro EVER. IF a rog BS once with this they would probably die or the creature would never release agro on him/her. It is like with wizards, the smart ones use the lower blaster in a fight till they can kill outright, or at least take it into the run zone and with snare it just sits there. A rog BS with this would be like a Wizard opening up 600pt blaster as the Creature was coming in with the puller. Stupid action = Dead character. LOL

Now this opens an interesting topic.. is aggro gained by the number of attempts at damage dealt? Or by the total damage done. My monk gets horrid aggro even when he's missing all the time and doing little damage (he was allways using weapons, and now trying to get his H to H skill up), while standing next to a slow 2hs weilding warrior hitting for awesome damage. I was wondering if anyone had some deeper insight in to this?
# May 14 2002 at 8:37 PM Rating: Decent

The convential wisdom is that the number of hits generates the most taunt. However, the damage done by backstabs sure seems to turn the mob a lot in a fight. My main is a cleric, and I frequently have to throw a smaller heal on the rogue, after he backstabs the mob. However, the taunt from backstab doesn't seem to last, as the tank taunts it back off pretty quickly.
Let me ask you this....

I traded at rallic pack for one of these and a Green Jade Broad sword. Was that a good deal? And what does the GJB sell for now a days?

You got pooched! Hope they at least gave ya a reach around!

Rallic on the Hammer is going for 2-3k and the GJB goes for about 3-5k, I think. But, the Centi Spear is ultra cheap, maybe in the 300-700pp range.

Anyways, whomever you gave the pack and GJB too got a sweet deal!

Did you even read his post? He said he traded a (rallic pack) FOR a (centi spear AND a GJB). According to your own prices, he got a very good deal, and the centi was just gravy.

I have a Silvery Belt of Contention. If there is no shaman or enchanter to haste me with spells, I use my Valor of Marr self haste. I have used this spear with the level 60 enchanter haste Visions of Grandeur. Sheesh! Haste belt, VoG, and 30 delay reduced to what....? I am so used to my Abram's Axe invigorating me that I now have to watch my stamina when using this. I do have weapon and inventory hot keys made to switch out the spear with the axe so I get the axe Invigor proc (hopefully).
I used to have an MotQ and had my piercing to 165. In 3 days I got it up to 193. It seems to be stuck there along with my 1hb at 193 for some reason. Kinda like a trade skill I guess :)
