I can easily solo every Vampire in TM, and i mean every one. Even the 2 very rare Vamps for the loyalist shield. Since I am only a druid meleeing these is not advised, however at times i do since my weapon has a nice proc. The only one that presents some minor difficulties is the last to spawn Valdanov Zevfeer. THe last time I took him out (7/28/06 on Tribunal) he gated on me 2 times. The last time he was at 0%. Luckily he we well dotted and i was ready for it sincei kited him back to near his spawn point, well with in range of my nukes. He only regened his health to about 12%, Their regen is incredibul, if not dotted would be at full health in 15-20 seconds......kinda devastating if you are low on mana.... He was much easier to solo that trying to keep atank alive his harm touch can add up in a hurry.....

Okay, this weapon is not meant for an EVERY day to day use, I mean it sucks, however there is a VERY good reason this quest is here. As there is a level 62 Vampyre that spawns in Tenebrous Mountains. He is part of the Loyalist Shield quest. This vampyre CANNOT be meleed with any weapon other than a BANE weapon, such as this.
So those saying this sucks blah blah blah, it was not meant for you to replace your LAMMY with or whatever the heck you use.

This Vamp can not be hit with non bane weapons but when a weapon procs it will land on the 62 vamp on the balcony.

The reason this weapon sucks is because you can BUY a 12/23 Vs Vampyre stake at the stores in Katta. 12/23 is a hell of a lot better than 10/26. That's why this item sucks. And the mobs that need to be killed are to difficult for the reward.

Actually I think the storebought Bane: Vampyre weapon is 2/23, not 12/23. So no, this weapon doesn't really suck in comparison.

They are 2/23 but have Bane DMG: Vampyre 10, which means that against vamps they are indeed 12/23.

Wouldn't that make it 10/23 since they can only be hurt by the bane dmg...
#balzarmysticshadow, Posted: Feb 07 2003 at 5:04 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) when figuring bane dmg its not just the bane, like this weapon is 7dmg with a bane of 3, makeing it like a 10dmg weapon against vampyres or so it seems, have killed in the GY in katta a while so figured why not do the quest and trying it on vampyres i was hitting for slightly more then a lammy, being 9dmg, dont think i have ever used a 2dmg weapon tho so cant compare

Bane damage is calculated by adding the bane damage + the normal damage. Anybody who's raided Lord Seru knows this. Rogues can still do fairly normal damage against him instead of the damage they would be doing with a 6 damage (or whatever the bane is) weapon.
If a druid tanks in a forest, and nobody is around to see it, is he uber?

Needs to be MUCH better for the level

for the guy that said this is great for rogues... please reconsider. it's 7/26 all the time, which is not so hot... and only 10/26 on Vampyres. still not so hot considering that you can get a crystalline spider fang from velks at the same level, which is 10/22 all the time. You don't even have to go to velks.. just hit the Bazaar. Crystalline spider fang drops all the time, and people haev a hard time giving it away. you can find them from 5 to 200 plat or so, and have a much better weapon.

um maybe you should quest a bit more b4 just rambbling on about stuff, the truth is the bane dmg only vamp items are used to kill the named higher end vamps in TM that can't be hit with normal weapons, they will be invulnerable it has to have bane dmg vamp dmg on it to be effective against them

Just spent 45 minutes in Katta, running through Graveyard and single undead spawns popped everytime. Dark blue to 40, but slow as molasses. easy kills, root dot, med, repeat. make sure to pull into the courtyard leading into cemetery, or you risk a double spawn, the guards won't KS you. seem to hit kinda hard, 35-80-somethings, so maybe not a good idea for lowlevel melee soloing. Seemed generally spell resistant, got resisted on drones of doom 3 times, which is more than I've seen in a looong time. Immolate got resisted alot, so I went with root, Drones, ro's sundering, immolate, and finished up with a drone or nuke as needed. As always, break out any exteneded affliction items to make your stay less mindnumbingly boring. seem to drop a skin piece about 2/3 of the time, if not more. again, was only there 45 minutes, so i may have been lucky.

at level 60, I have weapons that give a damage bonus of 23. If your reasoning was correct, then the damage bonus would never be higher then 60-25/3 = 11

That's the base damage bonus for 1 handers, and he's correct. Wield a jade mace or lammy at 60 and it's bonus will be 11. The bonus gets a bonus (so to speak) on 2handers and also a bonus for any weapon with a delay higher than 40 (base delay, not hasted delay). So yes, the DMG Bonus can be higher than 11, but only on slow and/or 2 handed weapons.

Just to clear something up the dmg bonus on 1handers has nothing to do with delay, 2handers get a nice 2h damage bonus at 28 delay or more. Honest tho i think they should kill the 28 delay thing because its killing the use of some nice fast 2handers. /=

I think you all are missing the Dmg Bonus: 8, or I am not understanding what Dmg Bonus does. I thought Dmg Bonus was added to Weapon Damage, in which case at best it would be an 18/26, which is a pretty good weapon.

Xev server cannot seem to offer a price for this weapon, as many have no clue what it is. Not sure what to ask for it, should I sell it.

The graphic is great =)

Just a suggestion, but our guild had a blast doing this. We had 3 of us doing the quest at the same time. I worked my way through 44 on this one alone, soloing undead.

When it came time to kill the cleric, we had 8, mid-forty players and 2 "uber" types.
The cleric did not stand a chance, but there was chaos. Everything died. Tons of coterie too. After all of it we rolled for items, including 2 of these spears.

Having tons of lower level players do this made it fun.

#Alterego, Posted: Mar 05 2002 at 12:53 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This is a crap weapon considering the effort required.
RE: Crap
# Apr 19 2002 at 4:11 AM Rating: Default
The effort required was 1 hour camping the green to 56 undead in Katta and one light blue mob in Ten Mtns. Admittedly, the light blue mob in TM was a cleric and CH'd herself, but still was able to solo most of it and duo the last part. Did it with a 56 ranger on the undead and added a 51 druid for the last part. I would say that this is a good weapon for coterie slaying at the level you get it at and an easy thing to equip alot of people at once. Fun quest, nice looking weapon, ok stats.
#Alterego, Posted: May 29 2002 at 8:40 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This weapon is 10/26 AT BEST, which is well, junk at the time when a similar amount of effort will yield you the LSOEE before the nerf. This is nothing more than a pretty toy, if even that.

This weapon is junk at the level you can get it.

If it was 10/26 with 3 bane vampires, then i'd buy your story, but as it is, it is at best 10/26. Marginally better than icetooth's claw against vampires. Or you can go get a sturdy grimling mining pick for next to nothing and get something that's better against everything that can be hit by non-magic (a much bigger category than vampires).

It's also a rogue usable piercing weapon. The reality of rogues is that what seems like crap to everyone else makes rogues flip out over such good stats at that level. While rogues can buy all sorts of good weapons, rogue weapons this good don't start dropping until post 50... which would make this a great weapon considering the level that you get it.

Maybe someday rogues will start getting weapons that are as good as everyone elses... but until then, we have to settle for what any other class would consider "crap".
What?!?! No Pallies???

I would think that a weapon made to fight Vampires would certainly be usable by a Paladin

Yeah, and it's also handed out by the Paladin trainer. And what also sucks is the quest involved you don't get Validus Custodus faction when you turn in the skin samples. Sucks when your apprehensive in katta and a quest that takes forever (3 days of waiting till the Left wrist sample dropped) and you don't get faction for the only part I can really do without higher lvls helping.
