    I just got back to the game after several years. I see some weapons on this forum that doesnt look good at all but they seem to go for millions. What these items seem to have in common is the "splintering Weapon" mod.

    Now i ask you what other mods combined with Splintering weapon should i pick up and try to sell?

    I found two items that i picked up just in case.

    Bone Harvester
    10% splintering weapon
    50% Hit fireball
    4 dex
    4 mana
    5% Enhance potions

    War fork
    15% splintering weapon
    45% hit lightning
    15 SSI

    Are these items worth anything just beacuse of the pslintering mod?

    Gah...I recognize your stratics posting name. It's on the tip of my tongue who your PvP mage is. I'm remembering FAST and good duelist... This is Peon from Sonoma btw. Ahhhhh... Kyrite right?

    Anyway to answer your questions.. 1st there is a new loot system in place for more than a year now. Some mods can ONLY be found as loot and splintering is one of these mods. It's beastly powerful in PvP because it's a chance to "proc" (30% max drop intensity) and when it does its a bleed effect AND a forced walk. Take your standard disarm archer and give him a splinter disarm weapon. If splinter goes off on the disarm your target has no defense / bleeding / forced walk for the duration of the bleed. You cannot apple or cleaning winds the effect though you can stop the bleed with a bandage with negates the walk effect. Ok....also...210 stamina is now possible so moving shot at 1.25 sec when your target has all that and it's game over... On to the crazy cost. Splinter mod has the draw back in that each time it goes off you lose 10 current durability (not max durability). This means 25 splinter effects later your 250 durability weapon is at 0. Remember that IMBUED items are brittle meaning you cannot apply powder of Fort AFTER imbuing them. So to find a dungeon loot say 20% splinter war fork isn't to useful bc if you imbue it you cannot then powder it back up to 255 durability. This all means that ideal disarm splinter weapons WITH other PvP mods are hard to come by and valuable. Magee can have splinter mage weps too but it's that much harder to find mage wep School no pen and splinter etc.. 20% splinter is a standard with 25 being rare and I've only seen 4 useful 30% splinter in like a year....hope that helps.
