    still for sale
     
  3. Don't know about anyone else, but it's just not that good for either PvM or PvP, rather a mix of both. Good luck selling it.

    I never understood why people post negative comments about items being sold.

    If you don't want it, don't post.

    The wep is good for a necro mage/mage tamer. dci 12 with NO neg casting on a -mage wep...worth 25m-40m IMO.
     
  5. what makes you single out mage tamers? if this were also max luck I could see it, but as it is, most tamers would not find it much more useful than anyone else.

    Ok since there seems to be a bit of confusion i will clear things up about this weapon. -20 mage weapons are extremely difficult to find, especially without a negative casting. Finding high dci on one is even more difficult. Since it's only 20 casting, it allows the user to be able to use a totem of the void to gain 10 lmc on their suit, rather than needing a +5 magery talisman to balance out the - magery. It is intended to be used with a necro mage. I'm asking 100m for it.
     
  7. Sorry, but it's open posting to anyone who wants to! :D

    That said, I have several of these very similar and never have been able to sell them even for a few 100K. So they go removed from my vendor, and Jax hasn't got any responses yet either. That's why, and I do wish him good luck selling it.

    p.s. It also bumps his posting

    You obviously do not pvp and do not understand the importance of mage weapons without a weapon skill. Would i pay 100m for his weapon---if it had a big hit spell to. Would i pay 50m for his weapon? ---yea

    What about a fork with -23 mage, SC, no casting penalty, 50 hit harm, and 10 DCI?

    *in my best god father voice*

    Make me an offer I can't refuse.
     
  10. You are absolutely correct that I don't understand PvP weapons at all. Why is this weapon better than my Swords of Prosperity which has MW -0, SC -0, Luck 200 and FC +1? I can get those anywhere for 800K to 2 mil each.

    Just this week I threw out a maul with MW -20, SC -1, DCI 6 and DI 36%. No one wanted it at any price. I got that one from Miasma. I had a Halberd (also from Miasma) with MW -20, SC -0, SSI 30%, DI 30% and couldn't sell it. Mage weapons with SC -1 in my experience aren't that rare...

    I did a quick inventory check of Mage Weapons that I had on my vendor that wouldn't sell and are sitting at home. Here is a sampling:
    Heavy Xbow: SC -0, MW -21 plus fire/energy damage
    Elven Machete: MW -23, SC -1, HML 60%, SSI 10%, DI 25%
    Black Staff: MW -24, SC -0, SSI 20%
    Bow: MW -22, SC -0, DI 37% plus fire/energy damage
    Cleaver: MW -20, SC -1, Air ele slayer, HLA 18%, HLL 12%
    Composite Bow: MW -22, SC -0, SSI 35%, DI 30 (I may use on my tamer)
    Crescent Blade: MW -20, SC -1, HSL 36%, HLL 40%, DI 37%
    Magical Short Bow: MW -22, SC -1, Hit Fireball 30%, SSI 25%, DI 38%

    I have quite a few more, but none would sell. I don't do PvP but run across lots of these types of weapons in PvM loot and seldom bother with them any more.

    So, and honest question: What makes a really good PvP weapon?

    For mage pvp to free up skill points they use a -mage wep. The wep being -mage gives them a chance to parry attack like having a weapon skill would.

    In pvp the weapons must all be one handed as to allow said person to chug pots.

    having -1casting on a -mage wep is poop. It's harder to build a suit with a 1/2 or 1/3 +mage ring.

    Below is what you're looking for on a -mage wep.

    Spell channel
    Mage skill -20
    1 handed wep
    NO -1 casting
    If there is a hit spell(not area) your looking at some serious $$$
     
  12. That makes more sense, RL. I never considered the 1 Handed weapon.

    Of course, if you use the KR client, with a macro unequip/equip it is almost the same thing because it happens to fast.
     
  13. don't forget, the undead slayer property can be something of a penalty when fighting repond (e.g., baracoon and his repond spawn will hit you for 25% more damage). And -20 mage weapons aren't especially difficult to find, its just hard to find them coupled with spellchanneling and FC1 on the same weapon (which evens out to no penalty).

    a couple similar weps that I haven't been able to sell at 70m:
    -21 sc-0 dci 19 di 55 twink
    -21 sc-0 dci 19 di40 ssi 25 machete

    and supposedly theres a bug with items personally blessed for other people, causing the insurance to sometimes not be checked and it drops to the corpse upon death, although this is unconfirmed by devs.
