i have to agree with bloodsoaked on this one. this would make an awesome off handed weapon for a rogue. rogues being dmg dealers it goes hand in hand with there innate dmg dealing ability. it has great stats and also a bonus to a rogue ability disarm traps. on the agro side of it, rogues have more control over their personal agro than any other melee. as a rogue you live or die by evading. so over all i would say heck ya this is a great weapon for a rogue. but since it no longer drops i guess it really doesnt matter.
Can you only aquire this weapon from the quest?

#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 01 2002 at 12:10 AM, Rating: Unrated, (Expand Post) This is called the spear of eternal bondage because you find it in Luclin and as we all now Luclin is full of homosexuals with bondage fetishes.

I wouldnt mind this weapon at all, wouldnt use on raids and such, simply for soloing, and PVP. am on a PVP server, so that proc can make the battl go much faster for me.

If you were to look up level 34 Necromancer spells youd find VoS ( Venom of the Snake) AKA the prc on this weapon. Anyone know why necros hate being on raids together?????......our spells stack like rubber balls. VoS would be forever canceld the second a Necromancer casted its upgrade ending this weapons usefullness, but what would i know im only a Necro =P

Ok, you are obviously can't think beyond you're own little world of EQ. While I would normally not say anyone is "only" a Necro (as they are really powerful), in your case you are 'only a Necro' as you missed the big picture of this weapon.

This proc is AWESOME, weather anyone overwrites it or not. VoS caste avery minute or 2 during a battle would get you killed, so think of what it will do for the Warrior/Tank who WANTS to keep agro. Many, many proc's on weapons of this quality are there simply for agro, and as a bonus if the class the spell came from isn't there then they add to damage.

and even if it is over written the spell hits for 40dmg an adds poison counters an then does 600ish dmg in 43 seconds, this proc is very good for aggro.

This weapon has been boosted in the last patch. It is now 11/20 with the same bonuses.
PLZ tell me what I am missing here...
# Feb 13 2002 at 5:26 PM Rating: Default
Why does no one understand that the 12/27 is actually a 22/27?...
RE: PLZ tell me what I am missing here...
# Feb 15 2002 at 4:39 PM Rating: Decent
ok, i will explain.

damage bonus is a level and class based atribute, for the person that had this in thier inventory, it had a 10 dmg bonus, but for someone level 30, it might just be a 1 dmg bonus....if it acually was a 22/27, it would still have a 10 dmg bonus.

umm, i think that answers your question.
Which boss drops this?
# Feb 04 2002 at 10:21 PM Rating: Decent
Just curious. As a shaman I would use this after clicking my epic and just switch out melee with epic after this was to proc (cause I don't have a friend who would touch a 12/27 with a 100 foot pole and I only would for the proc).

So if someone would post which boss drops this, I would be most appreciative.

Any rogue with dex above 160 using this would have extreme problems with agro. I am a lvl 60 shaman and have used this line of poison dots, and the agro from them is enormous.
RE: agro
# Mar 08 2002 at 8:29 AM Rating: Decent
No rogue should have any agro problems with this weapon if they are good enuf to get it. RoF quest is very hard and the rogue shouldnt pull agro from the MA if there guild is up to doing this quest. Warriors that are doing this quest with there guild will most likely have smouldershank/Sceptre of destruction witch proc debuffs. Debuffs pull more agro than DoT's do. And rangers (hahaha) your not geting this weapon it will go right to a rogue even if he isnt going to use it simply for the skill mod. =)

venom of snake because of it's fast DOT damgage is a great taunt spell, especially if it proced often on this item, as many have stated 'a tanks job at any lvl is to keep the mobs on them'
Not a bad item
# Jan 17 2002 at 11:40 PM Rating: Default
But still it is 12/ not that high end for a melee that would be generating the proc...Sorta like a Steel Hilted Flint Dagger, fun toy for me, and if I have 255 dex it does good damage, but still use my hate whip over it if things are serious.
RE: Not a bad item
# Jan 18 2002 at 12:16 AM Rating: Decent
It's 12/27, but it does become 15/27 if you're hunting Grimlings. That's how Bane works as I understand it. And there's plenty of Grimlings to hunt... :)

But, the Bane damage doesn't apply to backstabs, or so I hear. Oh well.

With Bane damage, such as this wep's +3 vs. grimlings, people have an incentive to collect an armload of weapons, instead of having just one (or one pair of 1H weps.) And/or players will be inclined to stick to hunting specific spots where their weapons are most effective...all this may change gameplay significantly, dontcha think? For good or bad, who knows yet.

Hm I wonder if there are weapons, still to be found, that have big Bane damage vs. dragons!
...or am I behind the times?

RE: Not a bad item
# Jan 18 2002 at 12:02 PM Rating: Decent
Actually if you work out the damage it appears that bane and magic damage is counted as a second weapon then added in at the end so against grimmlings it would be like hiting them with a 12/27 weapon and a 3 /27 weapon with backstabs and crits being based of the first weapon
ring of fire?
# Jan 17 2002 at 11:10 PM Rating: Decent
Is this another Ring of Fire "quest" item or is it just a drop off other mobs in Acrylia?
RE: ring of fire?
# Jan 24 2002 at 1:57 AM Rating: Decent
It did drop during the ring but it might also drop elsewhere I suppose, although unlikely.
uhhh wut

What a ton of Stat's
# Jan 17 2002 at 8:50 PM Rating: Decent
Hmmm ... this should drop off a pretty hard to kill mob. Casting time on VoS is 4.6 seconds but if this is a proc it should be instant. The damage with bonus makes this a pure damage dealer without the proc ... then adding Stat's on top plus Skill Mod ... then Band to Grimling's? Gee ... How can you fit all that information on one information window ... ;)~
