I am going to explain the Power, Vanquishing, and Mystic weapons. To do that we will need to take a journey back into the good old days of the game and work our way forward. Long ago in a time before mouse over properties and AOS attributes. Before insurance and colored ore. Before ITEM DECAY lol. We had to identify any weapons or armor we found to reveal the properties contained on them. Back in those days the power vanq and mystic weapons were a bit different than we know them now. You also had additional properties on weapons and they would read something like: Supremely Accurate Longbow of Vanquishing And so on. Supremely Accurate would equate to high HCI in AOS attributes. Vanquishing if memory serves me correctly would equate to medium Damage Increase in AOS attributes. But those days are long gone and the old weapons of Power, Vanquishing and Mystic strength lost the special names they once had but kept the attributes converted into today's equivalent for AOS attributes. Skip ahead a few years to the Britain invasion spring of 2005. It was at this particular event that the Power, Vanquishing, and Mystic weapon names were seen once again. This time they were different. Durring the invasion of 05 deep green colored monsters would spawn called Generals. These particular monsters when defeated had a chance to drop the new weapons with the Power, Vanq, Mystic names. At the time the weapons were nothing more than replicas of the old weapons but with the name to match. However later we would have a use for these weapons specifically. Moving on to the Ophidian invasion of 2006. It was at this event that we saw a special version of the P.V.M (Ironic Isn't It!) weapons. These came in a few forms such as the sceptre and bardiche. They had names like "Mystic Ophidian Bardiche" These weapons were used against the Ophidian Berserker to deal hidden damage that would penetrate the special defenses of these creatures. This was the first time a "Berserker" creature was seen and would not be the last. Forward once more to the Demon Invasion in Magincia 2007. This would be the last time anyone would lay eyes on magincia as a town lively and bustling with daily activity. It was during this event that we would see a use for the P.V.M weapons both from the Britain Invasion and from the current Demon Invasion in Magincia. Some of the demons would drop the P.V.M weapons on their corpse during this event and we would need either those or previously gathered P.V.Ms from 05 to battle the Daemon Berserkers that would spawn around the gate for this event. You could also use your Ophidian P.V.Ms to deal the needed damage and it worked as it did on the Ophidian Berserkers. NOTE: The Ophidian Berserker would drop a "Berserker Bardiche" The Daemon Berserker drops the "Berserker Scythe" Now that we have a history of events and the P.V.M weapons role in said history let us move forward one last time to the current time. The Blackrock Locator in moonglow failed as we saw and lead us into "The Rift" a time shifted version of moonglow that is perpetually stuck one day prior to the machine failing. It is here that the P.V.M weapons play their part once more. In the Rift are the Daemon Berserkers perhapse remnants from magincia perhapse they are simply back for more one can only speculate. But what we do know is that there is only one weapon for the job a P.V.M! Preferably the M... And so this concludes my history into the past events and the role of the Power, Vanquishing, Mystic weapons.
