2HE?

Post by reids » Tue May 09, 2006 8:44 am

Right then, ive decided to go 2HE with my keeper. Currently i have 108 2HE and 95 Fast Attack skill.

Can anyone recommend me a decent weapon?

Well considering 2H edged is the only green melee skill I think you've made a wise choice ;)

I would get a frost scythe of the legionnaire as soon as possible, pretty easy to get and not hard to equip. Then think about getting a stygian desolator - I know these 2 weapons are terribly common but they really do make good weapons at low level (the frost scythe especially in SL, although you should be ok with the styg in Nascensce). After that you have a number of choices : Longsword if the Illuminated or Copy of the Excalibur although these 2 swords definately are not cheap.....I've seen some keepers use a longmoon until they can get the above mentioned swords. But stick with a scythe and stygian for now and you can't really go wrong :)

Edit: Oops forgot to mention Frost-bound Reaper, drop in Inner Sanctum, not exactly easy to get but here's the best part.....its FREE :D

Well if you have AI a Kyr'ozch Sword Type 112 is quite good as well but a tad costlier than some of the already mentioned options.

Sadly i dont have AI, but Venderim, those are a bit high QL atm (im level 19!) and they dont seem to come in a lower QL at all :<

I realise the excalibur and illuminated are quite high, was just thinking for in the future, but the frosty and Stygian should easily be within reach.

I would max 2h edged every time you level and get as high a QL imps as you can get, standard keeper imps already come with 2h edged cluster so would just stick with those for the moment. Those plus a 131 wrangle should allow you to equip the scythe pretty soon. Hope you find that useful :)

Guard of the Gentleman

Sold in sl gardens.

And I agree with nerfman, the rest of the game with only fbr is really boring. If I'd make another keeper I would skip fbr altogether and just use a 880 or 112 sword from lv 130.

Maybe cross that bridge when you come to the river. You can always upgrade to AI later.

The non-AI alternative to the typed swords is the Naginata (Omni) or Sword Staff (Clan) - They're decent weapons, fairly cheap, with just one main problem... They are SLOW. With a 2/5 speed you'll need some serious inits to swing more than once a year, and you can kiss that scope goodbye - The damage is well worth it though, and the crits for these weaps aren't all that hot anyway.

Jobe Defender Naginata http://auno.org/ao/db.php?id=231220, even if it's nodrop and quite expensive both money and IP-wise (bought in the different SL gardens), is ace before and after the TOTW weapons. One of the best balanced Keeper weapons IMO. :)
Ensom, forlatt av alle hun kjente.
Levende død, alle broer brente.
Skjebne med smak av urettferd
slettet alt det hun var verd.

Ensomheten som hun frykter,
menneskers onde rykter,
all den glede som en gang var,
revet bort av tiden som tar.

Lengter etter mørke og stillhet.
Gråter og kaller på noen som vet.
Ensomheten har gjort henne nøden.
Kommer han aldri?

Hun venter på døden…

I have a keeper as well, so I can give you some guidance on this one

Until you can get Frosty and/or stygian, get yourself a Guard of the Gentleman.

I used this prior to the above mentioned and it held me quite well off

If you need help getting one,feel free to send a tell to any of my toons

jobe defender naginata also drops off of the sided mobs...another option you could do is the inamorata/sacrosanct naginata, and upgrade it to add brawl/fastattack/dimach with one of those glyphs...

it hits better than frost, not as nice as fbr though.


or you could just be old school and reset 2he in favor of gelids instead of using fbr. fbr makes the game so much more boring, especially when you get to the point where all you do is ado hecks/pen mishs...

i hear edge of tarasque is pretty nice though.
