    [​IMG] Hmmm, probably Namarra, so useful the entire game for that silence on the pesky spellcasters i always seem to have to kill at every turn. Next would be Azureedge, the throwing axe from the Copper Coronet, and the Flail of ages, another useful all the game weapon.

    Why do people use Sword of the Roses? It is not even a good weapon compared to others out there.

    The holysword is probably the best weapon in the game. I also like the Soul Reaver, however, it is anti-good. Celestial Flury for its stunning abilities. The Wave Halberd. I'm not munch of a ranged weapon type player, but Gesen bow is handy with its own ammo, phantom arrows i believe. Lastly, the silver sword (vorpal) ... Well, these are the weapons i equip my adventurers with. I myself did not want to forge the Crom Faeyr because i like the strength enhancing items it gave to my players. When i cast strength of one, my players had an average of 19+ strength. It gives a good to hit and damage bonus. Sweet deal.

    SoulReaver is definitely the best. Has been my trusty sidearm since I found it. Besides at high levels (i.e. TOB with higher attack numbers and special attacks), it can cripple even the mightiest of foes to the point they can not hit you.

    Indeed. The cumulative effect of the SoulReaver is formidable and it lasts for twenty rounds.!

    black razor is the best. i gotta say. Immunity to charm and fear, the level draining, and the regeneration every 5 seconds. Now that is good. imagine that double wielding two black razors and two ring of gaxxs. thats 4 hp in 5 secs. Ring of gaxx's 2 hps every 3 secs, blackrazors 2 hp every 5 secs. all you need my friend. You'll never die like this

    actually thinking it over again. Now i have two favorite swords Black Razor and Lilacor.

    Blackrazor, Long Sword +3
    This sword radiates evil like a sour odor, and the owner never knows if he
    wields the weapon, or if it wields him. In addition to its combat abilities,
    Blackrazor slowly regenerates its owner with the drained strength of
    opponents.

    STATISTICS:

    Equipped Ability :
    Regeneration: 1 hp every 5 seconds
    Immunity to Charm and Fear
    With every hit it has a 15% chance of draining 4 levels, healing the
    wielder by 20 hit points, and hasting him for 20 seconds as well as
    increasing his strength by 3 points for 20 seconds.
    THAC0: +3 bonus
    Damage: 1D8 +3
    Damage type: slashing
    Weight: 4
    Speed Factor: 2
    Proficiency Type: Long Sword
    Type: 1-handed
    Requires: 6 Strength
    Not Usable By:
    Druid
    Cleric
    Mage

    Black razor would be lovely, if you had it for more than one battle in the game.

    Where do I get Blackrazor? It seems like the best sword? You can only use it for one battle? Which battle is that. I just started playing

    If you just started playing, don't worry about Blackrazor. It's available legitimately only at the very end of the game.

    I liked Jhor the Bleeder. It was fun to watch Drow run in a panic and then die a few steps away from the bleeding damage. :)

    I like Flail of the Ages +5 (as in, with five heads). It's only a ToB item, and i had to do a little *ahem*, hacking to get it, but it is sweet! Instead of +1 damage for every head on it, with all 5 it gets +2 damage for each head!! It's not even funny watching the poor saps that I don't like die in front of my eyes. Poor babies.

    P.S. Wait, it is funny. What was I thinking?
