first, after having played a BST with a ulak (that really common one that drops in MS or somewhere on da moon) and hating every moment, lol it wasnt fast enough for such a weak thing. so i got a SK and a shissir knight sword. did me well thru PC, v. fast, then i got given this baby, a shaded blade that looked UBER! it hit hard n fast, way better then my hunka junk BST.. lol couldnt even solo in PC with bst, btu with SK i flew thru, solo or not, with these two. now i cant wait to get a dual weilding class, with two of these! P.S: sadly, now i have a longblade of vitality.. i love it, but not as kewl lookin as shady blade :-P although, it is a kewl looking weapon (wonders if i got a nice arg, it would glow?)
Also droped by "The Protector"

This droped off of The protector in Akeva Ruins for me a couple of nights ago. Not the best sword, but not the worst either. Has kinda cool graphic as well, solid center part with a black translucent (SP?) outer part.

Yes that is correct, this item is now magical.
Stats wrong

This is a magic item. Im using it till I get a centi LS, other than that the stats are right.
My sword
# Jul 29 2002 at 10:21 AM Rating: Default
I love this little sword of mine, magic or not at lvl 33 and rising there aren't many mobs that need to be hit with a magic weapon, and the ones that do, I've got my Jasarth Trident to dual with my primary fungus encrused hammer, I really think this is a great mid level weapon, though it KILLS my svfire, being a troll I only have 5 naturally, and I only have 4 now because my thunder etched pauldrons add 4, and if I do get that PSC I've had my eye on I'll be down to 1 svfire, it looks like I won't be the MT on any naggy raids anytime in the future. Anyways, this is a great mid level weapon, just make sure you have a backup, or you might be caught in a bad spot with this. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR

Ok...Friend gave me this sword for a dorf warrior alt..I checked and double checked it...mine says Magic Item, Lore item. Think either there are 2 swords with same stats and ratio with same name or..they changed it in a patch..check your swords again. Mine does say Magic Item.
RE: My sword
# Oct 12 2002 at 1:11 PM Rating: Default
Yes, it is magic now, I wrote that post before the patch changed it. YAAAAAAAAAAAAAR

Be warned....

I thought to myself, how lucky I was to find one of these at the venders in SH, for only 30 plat. My 55 Shadow Knight was very happy untill he tryed useing it against some undead snake guys inthe the Grey and even afew Sarnarks in Chardok only to get the message that the mobs couldn't be hit with it, also imune to the blade were the darned green stone grabbers in echo.

This would be a much more useful weapon if it was magic. ( I'll have to look more closely next time before I buy, although 30 plat is'nt much )

I jus picked up a Centi short sword and a Shaded Blade for my ranger and im wondering which should go in primary and which should go in secondary?Any suggestions????
RE: which?
# May 23 2002 at 12:42 AM Rating: Default
I have a bard and have same weapons, I use Shaded in primary and CSS in off hand.. Shaded is better delay.. Only thing bad about shaded is it's not magical.. I carry another sword just in case..
#REDACTED, Posted: May 01 2002 at 5:39 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Got this today and i am thrilled to finaly get a weapon that looks good. Lots of complaints about the heavy wt and how it hurts sta. Last I checked sta only counts when swimming or jumping. Thats why i don't have any food or water...ever. No pt in paying 4k for a lammy when you can get this thing dirt cheap.

food and water isnt just for sta... /shrug

FYI, If you have under 100STA total, when you yellow bar gets low, you lose AGI and DEX, plus your swing times get slower (hence being tired).

Another thing, for any bards who are looking to get something like this...this is not a magical weapon (which I really do think it should be, as the rest of the Shaded equipment is all classified as MAGIC), but you can make it magical by singing your new lvl 9 Luclin song "Magical Monologue". This song grants any weapon the ability to hit magical creatures (therefore, this blade now becomes magic when singing this song). Unfortunately, you'll have to sacrifice one of your usual songs sung during combat to twist this in.

Just a workaround for bards who are looking to make this sword worthwhile. (I'm currently having to sing Anthem de Arms, Jaxon's Jig o Vigor, and Magical Monologue to make this sword work when fighting a ghoul or any other magical creature...or I just crush it to oblivion with my Di'zok Wristsnapper..*grin*).

Currently level 20 and still don't see a dmg bonus on this weapon, anyone know if a dmg bonus actually exists on it?

Damage bonus is level dependent. Once my warrior dinged 28, all his 1h weapons got a bonus of 1. The 2h weapons have delay based bonuses as well. My Argent Defender 33/49 has a bonus of 7, at lvl 28.

OK, I managed to buy one of these for my bard from Shady in EC for a whopping 6pp and change (wound up being near 7pp). I was looking for a centi LS or a centi SS from a PC and just happened to wander by Shady to see what he had. Well, before knowing exactly the worth on this thing, I bought it just because it had a good dmg/delay to it. I was surprised to see that with all the stats on it, it wasn't a MAGIC item. However, I still love the blade and the only problem I've been encountering is its weight. It weighs 8.0 so my stamina plummets when I use it. If it weren't for Jig o Vigor, I'd be useless after about 2 minutes.

One more thing, on my blade, it doesn't mention a Dmg Bonus. Does this appear after a certain level? My bard is only level 17. So just wondering since the pic on here states that there is a dmg bonus.

One more thing. I also managed to buy a set of Braided Ivy Cords for a bit under 6pp from Shady. I don't need the cords, having a set of my own, but I bought them anyway to give to a friend.

So if you're in EC and looking for a steal (which it probably is anyway in the first place), make sure you stop by Shady and see what he's got before anyone does.

looks rather like this is another 'our database programmers work 24/7, don't expect them to flag every item properly' thing.
Like the crusty shell shield that was flagged 'magical' after it was out for years - like Moktor and Raldukan Armor that used to be ranger usable etc. etc.
I hope big V start doing their homework soon and clean up their database mess. All other shaded stuff is 'magic, lore', so should this.

Hope they fix it in one of the following patches, so i can use it as raid-resist-gear with the Sarnak Battle Shield (who cares how much damage output I lose .. it's less than spending 3/4 of the raid at my bind point because I died in the first AoE wave ;oP )

Anyone know what it costs on Torv as of 3/9/02? :)
RE: Price
# Mar 26 2002 at 2:23 PM Rating: Default
Seeing them go on Torv for 600-1k. 800pp seems the most common price. Blamed good sword for 800pp.
