    I'm seeing how many stones I can get for this lance now. I hate stones but no one will trade for anything else. :mad:

    I thought Jake got ripped, that sword for THAT lance? I wouldn't have. I don't see how -40% can be that valuable for lances, given that anyone who would really want -req. stuff would be a dueller, and any in their right mind would only duel in S/S form. Therefor if they were going to carry a lance it would almost certainly be for PvM and so they would raise their strength to 200+ anyway.

    no one uses full requirement execs... no one. EVERYONE uses lances. And a -40% lance is even better. Besides. Since the exec wasn't -40% i would never use it so I was trying to get stones for it and then some one offered to trade me that lance. I figure the lance is worth more stones than the sword. :nod:

    My barb has 200 something in str, almost 200 in dex and enough in vitality to give me 1400 hit points.

    I got 3 skull grasps just by being nice to a Korean for a change :)-. I know they're all hacking bastards, and many can be down right evil, but if you find the right one, and are really polite, then they'll shell out good shiat for ya :D.

    I traded the lance for 24 stones. Then I traded 4 stones for two skull grasps and two stones for a +1 barb dual 5% ammy. So now my leeches are maxed and I have 18 stones... which I effectively found on the ground. :D

    Can we all say, "Jakeman...you bastard..!!!"

    That is the kinda thing you do in private, and do NOT rub it in our faces that you are luickier than a friggin leprechaun... :)

    :fist: Jakeman

    Jakeman :rocket:

    ** And YES: I will be giving my barb and pally over the 170/110 margin for execs and ornates...

    All it does is help out on damage and AR and Def...

    actually, it would be closer to 170 or more into str and 80 or so into dex, pick the rest up with +dex on items. It's what I did with my polearm barb in order to use a Grim Scythe (140 dex!)

    Saying that no one uses full req execs is similar to saying "no one uses Macintoshes" just because all the folks you know use -40% req execs (and most folks owning a computer have peecees).


    The only thing that lance had going for it IMO was the high damage and high AR. you can throw the -40% reqs out the window because lances have insanely low requirements in relation to other top of the line weapons (execs, becs, scythes). Not to mention the fact that most lancers are really pretty stupid (no offense to the lancers in the clan, you guys have proven you are not stupid) and don't really consider anything other than base damage on their weapons.

    Good thing you got rid of it pretty quick though, you might have had trouble unloading it when word gets out of certain "adjustments"


    all in all, congrats on the big haul.
    I would have done things differently, but it seemed to work well for you.

    hehe, ya know what? With the expansion lances are gonna suck because WW will be adjusted for the attack speed of the weapon. By default lances have VERY SLOW ATTACK SPEED, as does that lance I traded.
