In the last 2 months i killed a VERY large amount of toilers and I can guarantee that or this is extremely rare or that it just dont drop off toilers.

i know this probably isnt the best place to post this question, but how does the dmg bonus on ne weapon work. Firt i heard it was add to the atk EX. SoG is a 41/51 w/ a dmg bonus of 42 so with this mehtod it would = a 83/51. But I have also heard that its a 41/51 and the dmg bonus is added to the amount u hit for EX. I hit a mob for 110 w/ dmg bonus it would equal 110+42=152 which is correct if neither are please put correct method.BTW had a chance at 39 to loot but didnt get it to slow. but wish me luck ill try again.

From what I heard, damage is calculated something like this:

(RAND * WeaponDamage * (Str + Weapon Skill + Offense)/100) + Dmg Bonus.
RAND is a random number between 0 and 1. The formula is not exact, but a decent guide. So, increasing your Str by 100 points would increase your damage with this weapon by 41 extra points.

As for how often you swing, it will be once (or twice with double attack) every:

WeaponDelay/(10*(1 + Haste)) seconds.

In response to how the damage is calculated...

The weapon's Damage Bonus is added to the final damage of the weapon... not the base damage.

41 51 with dmg bonus of 42... means that IF you hit a mob, you will never hit for less than 43 damage... (1 for lowest hit you could score +42 dmg bonus)...

Factor in a high 2HS skill and you can easily see how the damage bonus helps...

My sk ogre got a 2pt str/attack damage bonus on lvl 4 /roar and a 46pt str/attack bonus on lvl 22.. hitting for 106+ on lvl 22 is 25% of the mobs hps :D .. poor pk ranger never knew what hit him..

Dmg bonus is for Tanker class i.e. War ( lol )

When you ding 28 you gain your first dmg bonus. the calcul are : Dmg bonus= (level-25)/3

The 2H you have the level dmg bonus AND a dmg bonus for the weapon's delay.

Higher delay higher bonus damage.

I spent about 8 hours trying to get good drops in ME yesterday. The Goranga Idol and the spiked club dropped like crazy, but that is all. I was told in /ooc that this sword no longer drops in ME and now drops in Akheva Ruins. Any info?

Hey guys, umm no that they are nerfed im having trouble getting one,last night I was offering 400pp I loot one and that didn't work, so im thinking of offering my Defiance to loot one. give me your opinion on my Idea, and it will help me decide if I should do it or not. THANKS!

E-mail me at
RE: Hey I need your help guys
# May 15 2002 at 11:49 AM Rating: Decent
Dont trade Defiance for this axe. Its nice, but not worth 9k. Just sit around, and get a group, and eventually you will see this in shout or OOC,' Str of Grodan rotting at this Loc........' Thats how i got mine, And yes, i love it. Crip'd for 498 with it ;)

Any way good luck

When luclin first came out these SOGs were rotting all over the place. Now they are no where to be found. I have killed probobly 200 toilers in April and I have not seen one drop or seen a tell saying that an SOG is rotting. If it still drops off of toilers it is rarer than the charcoal that i have seen 5 times, but still haven't won the roll for. Also if you are going to come to ME i would recomend bringing a grp. Usually when kc is over crowded I drag mine here.

Does it drop off a Toiler or not??
# Apr 03 2002 at 12:28 PM Rating: Decent
I read below that it no longer drops off a toiler, but off a "battlemaster". Whats the deal? If anyone has gotten one recently, please say where and when you got it and from what.

I'd love to do whatever it takes to get this blade, but I don't wanna camp something that won't ever drop it.
no longer drop?

You're so going to hate hearing this, but I found out what drops the Strength of Grodan now. I just completed camping the Battlemaster for 2 1/2 weeks to get the slighted pauldrons and finally got them tonight.

Well, here's the bad news. Verant took the 9/20 warhammer he used to drop and replaced it with the Strength of Grodan as his common drop now. They did this 2 patches ago from what I can tell. And no, you can't tell when he has the pauldrons or when he has the axe. The axe doesn't show up when he has it. And the other bad news, in 2 1/2 weeks of camping the BM, I can honestly say I saw him less than 10 times of camping him roughly 8 hours a day on average (most of it weekends and yes, I sacrificed my life for 2 1/2 weeks to get these pauldrons since iksars can't wear Imbued Granite Spaulders).

Anyways, I'm sharing it now that I got my pauldrons and don't have to worry about camping them ever ever again *Thanks the powers that be*
