an ebony bladed longsword

Postby Gormal » Tue Apr 05, 2005 7:04 pm

Something has been done to affect how often this weapon procs. Its been nerfed to the point where its not even worth using any longer. The whole premise behind the sword was that it was a reliable way to blind someone... I can go 30 rounds now without blinding a single mob. In a MUD where every fight has 10 mobs now, its not an effective tool any longer. Too bad... CC really didn't need another hit.

It could have been done then, and it could be something with mobs now or with procs in general. I haven't used it much for a while because its been sucking, I've been levelling my alts, and forced to play other chars. I don't know what is wrong with it hence why i said "something". All I DO know is that it doesn't proc nearly like it used to.

I've heard 'theory' that procs are strength related. Then I've heard others say that procs are 'dex' related. Regardless, I tried the ebony with an ogre and a halfling within the last few weeks just testing it myself. It seems to noticably proc less often for either halfling/ogre.

Not quite sure what your talking about. I use mine all the time and it procs the same as it always has.

I've had the one I am using now for probably close to 2 years anyway and I can't say i've noticed any change in the proc one way or another in that time.

I still think that procs are determined at least in part by hidden stats.

Rather than seeing "subpar race/class," see "challenge."
