Can anyone reccommend any good quests to obtain a good sword and shield that would suit a lvl25 pally, without sending me into the depths of hell where i have a tendacy to die loads, cheers.

I was using Skullcrusher, which I bought from the black market vendor for a gold, and Stormshield, which I obtained from a named bird in Thundering Steppes. There are a couple other shields with identical stats for the level, though. Shouldn't cost you more than 2-3 gold for a decent one hander + kite shield combo.

<DIV>I'm currently using Starfall as a one handed hammer and a pristine kite shield and doing pretty well. I actually bought Starfall for 5g, but it is a questable weapon. It's attunable though, so I won't be able to resell it once I'm done. Pity as it's a top notch weapon <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>

<DIV>Starfall and Firwood kite shield, got for a total of 3G, the best you can get for that level imo.  Starfall is attunable but is well worth the cost.  This takes my attack to around 325 with 1489AC (with all available pali buffs) at lvl 25.</DIV><p>Message Edited by DemosEye on <span class=date_text>01-06-2005</span> <span class=time_text>04:24 AM</span>

<DIV>The best weapon at twen levels is Berik, Sword of Thunder . Look it up in the item database <STRONG><A href="http://eq2players.station.sony.com/en/item.vm?itemId=4273" target=_blank>here</A></STRONG> .</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>The bottleneck in this quest is to get it in the first place, as it is a rare random drop off any mob in Stormhold ( including life leeches, yes, drop confirmed on them, btw ).</DIV> <DIV>The best shield to that is the <A href="http://eq2players.station.sony.com/en/item.vm?itemId=3747" target=_blank>Ancient kite shield</A> off Guard Captain Hess, also in Stormhold.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>As many quests lead you to Stormhold anyway, it is a good thing to keep an eye out for it. The quest drop is just called Sword of Thunder and needs to be examined. The living blade will only talk to fighters though, so mages/clerics winning this wont have any use for it.</DIV> <DIV>Now in retail the finished Berik is no longer tradeable btw.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>The quest is kind of easy, first kill 100 undead in SH, then kill 3 nameds : Blacksmith Brigg down in the underforge, Battlepriest Alexandria ( not greyhorn, alex is on the spawn point of the roaming defiled torrent in the BP room ) and finally Lord Byron in the first door to the right when entering the main hall. He spawns beside the quartermaster.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Apart from Alexandria the kills will be fast and easy. As the Battlepriest room is camped alot, just get into the group staying there.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>All in all one of the best quests in the game, hands down.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>And if you think Stormhold is a debt trap you arent worth of my time. Just ask some weaponsmith to make you a carbonite club.</DIV>

<DIV>Used Nerius Pirate Scimitar (About same stats as Feysteel Scimitar and usable at lower lvl) and firwood kite sheild until 30.  Pristine Carbonite Battle hammer was 1hb.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Now at 30 using Toradins Hammer from Dusty Blue stone quest, Sheer Bone Kite Sheild.  Waiting for 32 to use Weakend Ghoulbane as 1hs</DIV>

<DIV>I haven't found a good shield quest at my lvl - 27 - but have found that the Firwood Kite Shield is a good investment. I bought it from the broker for 2G. It immediately raised my AC considerably, as it was 210 AC but after the update, it is now about 250 AC. </DIV> <DIV>With my armor and jewelry, I am close to maxed at 1606 AC. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I use a mace and my highest straight melee hit was for 91. I think I average close to 50 a shot, but then we're not made to be offensive weapons. I use it to kill time between the beatings I take. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Lemli - Mistmoore</DIV>

<DIV>Lvl 27 Paladin here.   Using Starfall (questable 1hb, TS, currently hits 24-72 plus good stats: +4 agi, +5 str, +12 health, +20 power) new awesome graphic too,  and Ancient Kite Shield (dropped, AC is at 253 currently with very nice stats as well: +2 int, +6 wis, +12 health, +17 power).  Both for free.   Absolutely best pre 30 combo out there. IMHO that is.  <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV>
