Nilspils @ 2004-08-17 00:34
ok :D Nice
Nilspils @ 2004-08-17 00:35
Rare drop from it?
APathetik @ 2004-11-29 23:50
everything in Steps Of Madness is a rare drop
Venderim @ 2006-04-23 22:56
OMG, I must have this. How on earth did I ever miss this amazing weapon, my shade is gonna be sooooo uber when I get my hands on this =P
agpecko @ 2008-01-21 08:30
^^ Cant tell if he's being an idiot or not.
Dagger @ 2008-06-28 06:00
With a min of 45 damage this is a fantastic weapon for lower level shades.
Hydrojen @ 2008-08-20 15:23
Terrific weapon now, the +piercing mods not only give it additional AR, it becomes a rather nice buffing dagger and might even help keep it unOE if you can reach 241 piercing with them :)
gergiskoo @ 2008-08-29 00:09
these are hands-down the best shade weapon for its requirements.
Zinrax @ 2009-02-09 17:38
Good up to like lvl 60 then its time to get some Kyr'Ozch Energy Rapiers.

Dagger @ 2009-04-04 09:22
^ look at the post date, SoM was much different.
gimpmasta @ 2009-04-08 08:46
lol @ the hidden MA combined attack, doesn't show ingame :)
buttmuffin @ 2009-04-30 06:41
going on my 15 trader :D
remember @ 2009-05-18 22:07
lol a subway twink can have this and i want it but how to get soooooo high Piercing at lvl 24?
basarix @ 2009-06-12 06:37
easy, the 29 piercing shade buff+20 comp melee+piercing 1 perk+LE research (+10)+82 wrangle+some spirit=302 piercing
Ilikedagunz @ 2009-07-03 16:24
Who makes a shade subway twink?

Going on my 21 trader. Got sick of the noob rod.
Mastaoflimbo @ 2009-07-16 10:47
Me and 3 friends have these on our lvl 10 traders at 100% i love them more than my noobstick :)
Briandmg @ 2009-08-02 16:14
These stuff are awesome twinkage items at low lvls cos equipping them by itself makes it go out of OE! =D
+20 piercing per blade ftw!
Cppthis @ 2009-08-31 08:49
Good for twinking, and one of the few decent froob-friendly piercing weps.
Briandmg @ 2009-09-01 13:06
Just need 140 MA skill to unlock the 3rd extra bar.
Ddifferent @ 2010-01-28 08:43
you mind explaining what you mean brian?
Xebulba @ 2010-01-30 11:41

Martial arts 140 = "Hidden" MA attack once you reach 140MA skill ;)
Briandmg @ 2010-06-18 11:58
Yeah, what Xebulba said. Normally if you duel wield FFBs, you'll only have 2 attack bars. But once your MA skill reaches a buffed total of 140, you'll automatically unlock a third, martial arts attack bar (your character will punch and kick your attack target). It may however reduce your overall DPS if your MA skill is substantiably lower than your piercing skill (e.g. you stab him for 100 dmg consistently, but only punch him for 20 damage). Your DPS lowers because the inclusion of your third attack bar will cause your other 2 attack bars to take a longer time to recharge.
kaliiber @ 2010-06-27 19:09
Got one from 1st kill and the other one from 5th kill.

Spawn-time is not more then 5min and the mob is right next to the entrance.
kaliiber @ 2010-06-27 19:19
And if my calculations are correct, only 209 piercing skill is needed to keep these babys out of OE!
Towertrasher @ 2010-07-21 17:41
No they aren't. Not even close ..
Makamae @ 2010-09-02 04:32
These are nice because they can be dual wielded, have sneak and fast attack, give +40 for 2 blades, have hidden MA attack and have high min damage. Nice level 10 enfo weapon.
ifosil @ 2011-01-13 01:21
can you use MA attacks with these?
bentilbox @ 2011-05-04 16:38
great damage at 24 shade ^^
Twinkaholic @ 2011-06-05 05:01
2 of these at 100% pwns an icebreaker, unless the IB enfo chain crits you. VERY good weapon for low level enfo twinks (15 and below).
SpACatta @ 2011-08-12 08:46
Towertrasher @ 2010-07-21 17:41
"No they aren't. Not even close .."

You're right. It's lower - 201.
Twinkaholic @ 2011-11-19 02:04
241 piercing to keep these 100%
Binarybot @ 2011-12-01 06:57
But since they buff +20 each, dual wielding you only need 201 self (and +40 from blades) to be non-oe. Great for claw MA to use in offhand... can still use combined MA, gain fast attack, gain attack rating on claw, and can keep a larger claw non-oe. Nothing but win
daniial @ 2013-02-08 09:25
ifosil @ 2011-01-13 01:21
no, not unless you duel wield with an ma attack compatible weapon.
Binarybot @ 2014-08-05 04:26
You can use MA attacks with any weapon setup where 1) All of your weapons have "Combined MA Attack" in game (or as shown on Auno, "Martial Arts"), 2) you meet the highest Combined MA Attack of all equipped weapons. Then you can toss in attacks like Blessed with Thunder, Flower of Life, or as a martial artist, Ape Fist (for stun), Tree of Enlightenment (for heals).
kilafiremage @ 2015-01-14 23:20
not a bad equip time for lower level pvp MA's wanting to swap in a fast attack/sneak attack weapon for alpha combo.
kilafiremage @ 2015-06-26 22:12
Binarybot, dont forget bright blue cloudless sky, the "best" pvp MA attack (100% chance for a 4 second stun)
