I got The Redeemer. One of my first UO artifacts. When I used to play with my paladin I would use it against the DF. I think it was terrible. But it wasn't bad either. I don't know if I used it right. The 5 second swing speed is a real jip. It is also irritating it can't be repaired by a deed. I don't know. I am curious, do you have a use for the sword? If so, how do you use it? With the DF I would basically turn on whirlwind and run into the fracas with DF targeted. After the swing, regardless of the outcome, I would run out and wait and heal and wait and wait and then run back in to do the same. On successful hits it was pretty cool. I could see the direct damage effect of my swing in his lifebar. A massive strike, but I don't know if there is anyway to overcome the swing speed. My paladin skills and stats need work, but is there another way to use The Redeemer?
