I always check merchants when I go into a zone Ihaven't been in for a while. Picked up a Blackguards Dudgeon in Surefall for 40 pp from a merchant and an Anaconda Fang for 36. Also found this Shaded Dagger in Thurg for 37 pp and change. Sometimes window shopping does pay off.
Very Nice weapon

I think this is a very nice weapon, I have been thinking about starting to practice, 1hb, and peircing, with my lvl 40 ranger, I think this and a club of the iced ocean would be a good combo, At least until I get my epics =) When I get my epics I will be one happy camper, ranger epics are sweet, but for now, Im going after one of these =P

I know I've said it before, and others have said it before me, but it bears repeating: ALWAYS CHECK NPC MERCHANT INVENTORY! My troll beastlord was fighitng by the hand that has the spell merchant on it in Innothule, an wanted to dump the minor loot he was getting off the frogloks and kobolds, and saw this dagger... VERY nice dagger, only 38pp! So he hoofed it back to Grobb to get the money for it, and bought it. Sadly, not beastlord usable, so I transferred it to my bard. Nice weapon, even if not for the resists... and NPC merchants charge MUCH less than what the going rate is from players! Always check the merchants, you never know what kind of bargain you can get because some high level got bored of an item and either didn't realize or care what the value is to players.

Much better im currentyyl using regular still havn't bouhg tLuclin somone plz tell me if graphics are better on everything (Not just the new island) I mean like all the races look different and maybe some monsters PLZ TELL ME!

# Jun 04 2002 at 1:05 AM Rating: Decent
Yes the luclin graphics are awsome, you need a good computer to run it well though, im currently running a compaq <insert flame about them here> that runs perfectly, its 1.7ghz, 512mb ram, and a GeForce2 at 64mb, no video lag, but my other is at 633mhz 320mb ram and a 32mb graphic card, it runs really slow. so if ya dont have a great computer, its not gonna do much.

ok to all war. out there ! dont buy this because u can get a jarsath trident for arround 500pp.

#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 02 2002 at 5:08 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) but see, with the damage bonus 10 on this item it essentially makes it a 21/22 dagger. they used the damage bonus instead of purely 21/22 so that rogues could use it i'm sure.

Wow wtf, you would think all the parhly retarded EQ player would have left EQ because the game was to slow and boring for their ever so fast mind. I can't understand now how so many people still don't understand dmg delay. It also bothers the hell out of me to hear someone say whats better FBSS or SCHW's or what is their haste % i get so pissed its like jesus if you can afford either you should ALREADY know this ****. Especially if you were already gonna be buying something with haste. I mean do you people buy cars without knowing the previous history of it? Do you guys even read the labels on the please do not place on skin or a bad rash will occur. Ok here for the next people who will read this rant and say wow what a waste of space no knowledge at all. k heres your F5cking information for you people who still don't know this.

Haste can only stack with Spell , item and bard haste. You can't wear SCHW's and FBSS and have 43% haste you take the higher % and thats your haste.

FBSS IS f$cking 21% haste
SCHW is 22%

Wether you would want to buy fbss over SCHWs i don't know but who cares your choice. Now for DMG bonus their are two kinds.

the two handed **** is based off of DELAY AND LVL
MORE DELAY IS BIGGER DMG BONUS. I will put this in dislexia form for those who still dont' understand , eht owt dednah itsh si desab ffo fo yaled dna lvl erom yaled si reggib gmd subon.

Phew now there is the one handed dmg bonus which is based off of lvl. I think once you get passed 20 is when you finally recieve your DMG bonus....

Ok sorry for venting but its annoying how people play this damn game so much yet still don't have a damn clue....

It's common knowledge nowadays that the FBSS is 17% haste, and the SCHW are 22%

WTF? Before I could afford a fbss or schw, I didn't care what the haste % was. When I finally was able to afford one, I began to care about the %, so I asked someone. You expect me to be psychic?

"I mean do you people buy cars without knowing the previous history of it?"

Again, am I supposed to be psychic? WTF is wrong with asking for info about an item? WTF is your problem? Does it really hurt you that bad when someone doesn't know how dmg/dly works, or doesn't know the haste % on an item?

One last thing, I don't understand what your post had to do with the thread in the first place. I suppose if I wasn't a parhly <sic> retarded EQ player, I would better comprehend your endless wisdom.

Got the lowest roll of my whole group, so they left me what they thought was crap! Nice day in ME for a loser.... My rogue alt appreciates it! BTW, at lvl 28, it shows no damage bonus. Does this show up at higher levels, or has it been nerfed?

answering my own question
# May 08 2002 at 10:25 AM Rating: Decent
Just hit 29th level, and at 28th, both the Shaded dagger and Shaded Blade began showing a damage bonus of 1. Guess it's all uphill from here! Seems to be a nice weapon that can grow as your character does.
RE: answering my own question
# May 27 2002 at 11:31 PM Rating: Good
all 1 hand weapons (including bare hands) have the same dmg bonus based on your level.
just subtract 25 from your level and divide by 3

so 28 dmg bonus is 1, 31 is 2 and so on

2h weapons are based on your level and the delay of the weapon

This sucker drops off of xi vius. Out of all the shaded weapons this one seems to drop the most. If you go to ME just don't camp with a rogue and you can probobly get this. I need another one i miss having a sweet piercer.

Dmg Bonus is 5
# Apr 26 2002 at 1:05 PM Rating: Decent
Damage Bonus is 5 now, not 10 like picture shows. =(

Edit: Nevermind hehe. I recently found out that Damage Bonus shown on weapons reflects your level (as mentioned by the reply, thnx) It increases as your lvl increases. =)

100 sta

Is the key. Pretty easy to hit 100 sta, and after you get there none of your stats are affected regardless of how low your sta bar goes in battle.
Rozzut's Whistler
# Apr 11 2002 at 10:53 AM Rating: Decent
Why worry about the weight of the shadded dagger, when for 3 hours of work you can get the quest completed for Rozzut's Whistler. 11/22 3sta, 3agi, 3lbs, magic, lore, no drop, ROG only, all races.

Quest starts in Firiona Vie with a female npc that had the last name sneakyfeet.

Required items are all no drop:
Frontier Ore - common, no drop item off Burynai slaves in Nurga
Gem of Nimbleness - uncommon, no drop, lore item off drolvarg in DL.

Final turn in is with those two items and 500p to a guy in Butcherblock.

The quest is spelled out fairly well on this site, just search quests starting in FV.

Got my items last night, turning them in tonight. I'm looking forward to the increase BS damage this will give me.

Hope that helps :)

The 5 wt is no problem. I am using this in my primary with a crystallien spider fang (10/22 also 5wt) in my offhand. Julies is a dwarf and with her equipment, her sta is 101. I have yet to have my stamina bar bottom out in a group, and that is chain pulling 3-4 mobs at a time non-stop in DL. At 41, I have BS'd for 263 with it so far.

Seems too heavy, and you would end up switching this out during a long fight... Ive noticed that once i get past 50percent stamina loss i miss alot more... The traks tooth in comparison, wouldn't drain stamina as much, allowing me to hit hard and fast throughout the battle... BS dmg accounts for less than half of your dmg before 50 <so i hear>... Traks tooth, imho is the better weapon considering they cost about the same.

Currently i use a slimecoated 10/25 4.7WT in primary, crystal fiber 2.0WT secondary, and my base stamina is 115. 22 rogue.
RE: stimpy you Idiot!!!
# Apr 03 2002 at 2:48 AM Rating: Default
People passing logs, have reported that your yellow stamina bar has absolutly no effect on combet, if you have 100 or more stamina. You say you notice missing more, is that something you have data supporting, or is it just a gut feeling?

You say you might as well get a trak tooth, but at the higher level the resist are indeed a nice touch, and more important, shaded dagger can go in off hand.

A very good alternative to a centi longsword for off hand, both because piercing caps higher (at least pre 50, no on top os 1hs caps 51-60), and because it looks stupid with a dagger primary and big sword secondary.

I was using a shaded dagger with my rangebringer for a while, and loved it.

Ive played a warrior and ranger, both used a wurmy from 30 - 45, both with stamina over 100. Granted there is a huge difference from 5.0wt and 15.0wt but im 99% postitive your stamina bar effects your attack. And i only say 99% positive because ive never let either character go below 40% stamina with a wurmy, bc i did notice significant misses...I would either switch to a lighter weapon or invigor myself... Also have you noticed that really nice pokers are light weight>? I dont think thats coincidence.

You do have a good point about using it for a secondary though. Resistances are very important later on. And yeah, i hate seeing rogues with a small daggar and some huge sword in the offhand.

Have you noticed almost all nice items are low weight? not just piercers. It's just they way the world works for the end game.

Yup, bought one of these on The nameless for 1k nice dagger same stats as sharpened velium spear that drops in western wastes and dragon necropolis and sells for gobs of cash. Its a nice BSer. Got this weapon in my primary and then sarnak backstabber in sec (10/20 +stats) combo does a nice amount of damage with haste

I won this dagger in a questionaire contest in ec on the nameless along w/ a spider fur cloak for my rogue...This weapon rocks for backstabbing and the resists are a nice bonus:)
# Mar 07 2002 at 12:16 PM Rating: Decent
A track tooth still goes around 1k now days, and to a rogue, this is a heck of a lot better then a track tooth. I have yet to find many weapons that go inbetween the 1k piercers and the 10k piercers. This is it, and the only people selling this dagger for 1k is everyone but a rogue, for we know what this baby can surely do.

are these prices correct?
# Jan 27 2002 at 7:12 AM Rating: Decent
Um, are these prices posted correct? 1.6kpp for this awesome thing? Is it because it drops often or is easy to get or did someone throw in some ringers to make the posted price seem lower? I mean I could afford 3 of these if they weren't lore compared to one trak tooth!
RE: are these prices correct?
# Feb 15 2002 at 12:08 PM Rating: Default
Well I don't know what Trak Tooth goes for on your server, but on E'ci I see it for 2K all the time. Sure, this is even better than TT, but it's fairly common since it drops in two zones. Ok, not *common* but certainly not very rare.
