<DIV>What is with the lack of decent sword drops?  Ive been stuck using clubs my whole game life except for the few levels when the quest sword was decent.  Right now I use a faysteel hammer.  My guardian friend uses a 1hb scepter looking thingie.  We really need some decent swords!!!!</DIV>

<DIV>I picked up the Pirate Greatsword today, for us the dmg appears closer to 70ish. Its not terribly great, but its decent.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I like the Scimitar reward as well, since its a 1.5 speed 1hander and still hits for a fairly decent 35ish.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Both weapons were welcome choices, worthwhile quest.</DIV>

<DIV>I'm almost 34 and still no yellow or even swords, I used nerius for a while but now it is far too low.  When I search the market for slashing weapons all i see is duel weild stuff that is useless to me (red)</DIV>

<DIV align=left>The tier 4 weaponcrafters are getting a few in production, they start with tulwars and daggers so you will see many of these first. I still use the skullsprainer for 1 hand, and 2 hand I use that hammer you get on Zek, I am looking forward to purchasing some tier 4 weapons and armor very soon, just got to with for the bug fix for out 150+ skill armor to be made.</DIV> <DIV align=left> </DIV>

<DIV>There is a lack of SK usble wepaons that dropes, remember some mobs need to have magic weapon, so the player made i usly use is no good.</DIV> <DIV>On a good side i finished zek citydale quest, went back to gladmaster and got a suprise reward, and the rest of the group got nice class weapons.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>But... when i so the other weapon link i was WOW, went to hail him, finaly i get a weapon that i can use all the time, and my only chose was Great axe! [expletive ninja'd by Faarbot]</DIV> <DIV>Only class that didn't get a usble weapon was the SK, iv seen 1 million dual/staff drop in this game /rant off <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>i might be unlucky, but morningstar is the best magic weapon i can use atm, to bad changing weapon takes 3 sec' when the devs know some mobs are imune to certen weapons.</DIV>

<DIV>Just finished the quest for Hundred Fold Blade. It's a fairly long Nektulos quest - look it up. Pretty darn good sword. Only problem is it's attuneable so don't plan on seeing it much on brokers.</DIV>

I want better one handed swords, im stuck with the Zeal sword. And its [expletive ninja'd by Faarbot] annoying. I hope within a few levels I will see a new sword drop but i hardly ever see any dropped one handed swords. If I ever seen one that is.

<DIV>Hey,<BR>I can't remember the details of the quest but I will go back in my quest journal this weekend and try and post a spoiler.<BR>I do know that it was a random drop in nektulos and to do the quest there is about 4 different mob types you have to kill. it is a pretty long quest but a sweet sword.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I didn't have trouble with the vexian, maybe try killing them again? If not I'd consider it a bug.. never had problems though.</DIV>

<DIV>There is a two part quest in Fallen Gate that you can do at 24th level that is better than the Nerius Greatsword as well as every other one hander I can find for the level.  Here is the link to the thread.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV><A href="http://www.shadowknight.org/forums/showthread.php?t=23750" target=_blank>http://www.shadowknight.org/forums/showthread.php?t=23750</A></DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Leads to a reward that gives you a choice of a pretty nice two hander or a very nice one hander (scepter).</DIV>

Two good options:Steel Scimitar drops pretty commonly in Bloodskull Valley, both the raid instance and the elephant training grounds instance. It's a very fast and well worthwhile 1hs that's as good or better than the pristine carbonite. I'm currently working on the Ghoulbane quest in anticipation of level 32. Got the weakened version, which is 11-33 base damage at 1.7 delay.

Yep, I had a pristine forged iron great sword for a while in my early 20s.That sword was taller then a dark elf and extremely imposing.Right now, I'm using a pair of carbonite crafted weapons. The morning star is 1H, crushing, and is a bit better then our SoZ quest reward. The other weapon is a bast sword which is a bit better then the carbonite war hammer that I was using.
