View Full Version : Spear at 20

<DIV>My understanding the quest reward at 20 level Mystic is a spear? I have been using a hammer (as I am sure most have ) but if the reward at 20 is a nice luvy spear I sure would like to use that - checking the site it seems to use the Dagger skill? Anyone know if it's One or 2handed?(because if its 2 I think I will stik to my hammer/symbol combo) - any advice from you higher level Mystics?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<DIV>its a one handed spear. ITs a nice one too thou. I use the symbol with it.</DIV>

<DIV>what symbol?</DIV>

<DIV>I also use symbol...</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Shield Of Dark Bindings ( don't let the name mislead you..it's symbol skill..symbol graphic)</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>+4 Wis, + 4 Int, + 16 Power, +12 Health.....it was a drop in Stormhold. Also finishing Sir Jeagers quest in Blackburrow can give you a decent symbol if you haven't gotten a drop. Since AC is only mildly important (IE if I'm soloing I better be able to defeat the mob/ and in group encounters if I'm getting beat on...I got trouble anyway) I find the symbol to be a great match, no AC..but usually tons of wis/power stats.</DIV>

The spear is given as soon as you complete the quest. I got it at 18 but couldn't use it until right before 20. You need like 98 skill (spear I think). I'm level 20 and already have my piercing up to 80, so I've decided to keep it for the time being

<DIV>just buy a spear from a weaponsmith or PC, to build skill with, keep the hammer to, doesn't hurt to switch off both to increase crush and pierce as you level never know when that sweet drop happens and you have low skill with it and are at minimal effectiveness until you gain skill</DIV>

<DIV>I never used a spear until my subclass quest one and had no problem maxing my spear skill in short order.</DIV>

<DIV>I am currently using the firewood tome with my spear which has dropped serveral times for the group in the Thundering Steppes.  I'm not at home until Mon or Tues so I can't play or post a screenshot <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>

<DIV>When I got my spear at 19 I was able to use it no problem.  I have my peircing now to 79 and got it in short order use it in every battle even if you are healer just target if you need to heal and F8 back to mob you are working on.  It is a nice weapon.  I also use a tome with mine from a drop in Stormhold.</DIV>
