Darkness Weapons Comparison



By Rasudido!


Well this is the high level Darkness weapon comparison remade, since Blues no longer has the time to update his given his recently becoming a mod. I mostly used the weapons already present in Blues' Comparison but will add the newer things that come by and keep updated the guide. I've kept all the rares present in blue's guide since they were fairly recent.




Z= Z token
R= rare
T= Temp
M= Muti element

Weapons Compared:

--Melee--
Vartai Master's Blade ZR
Custom Weapon [Arcanum/Shadowsteel]
Grim Vestige ZM
Nightslayer Z
Dark Wartexx Z
Blood Blade
Soul Carver
Tongue of Stragath
Vampiric Axe
Exodus Axe R
Exodus Blade R
Duality M
Salvation Blade
Necropolis Fleshrender
Elemental Seeker
Death Shard T
Migraine Club ZR

--Ranged--
Shadowspear
Fatal Razor Fan
Zardmaster Lance
Calvarian Ebil Scythe
Ghoulish Ebil Scythe

--Magic--
Edge of Unity
Lumpy Skull Club
Dragon King's Supreme Axe R
Big100k (level 70 and level 80+ values)
Dire Staff of Nihilus
RuneStaff
Blackbones
Banisher Scythe R
Venerable Chronoblade
Stygian Ebil Scythe
Abyssal Ebil Scythe
Ogre Shaman Staff



Assumptions

Adjusted Mob Defense: 45
Resistances: 100%
Player Level: 130
Monster HP: 1500
for level scaled weapon, highest stats are assumed!
For Custom weapons: no special, 15% BTH, Darkness element, either Arcanium (8-29) or Shadowsteel (6-32) are used.




note:

- Weapons have highest level assumed (level 130), this will not changed unless personally requested, in which case a second entry will be made with the lower level
- Only weapons level 66+ will be taken into consideration, few exceptions would be token weapons.
- CHA/END are completely worthless when it comes to weapon comparisons so even though the builds mentioned are Pure mage/Pure Warrior/Hybrid you should
note that hybrid includes: Beast master Builds (200 INTorSTR/DEX/CHA) Tank Builds (200 INTor STR/DEX/END), since INT will provide no bonus to melee weapons
and STR will provide no bonus to magic so you could assume that those count for the 200 CHA or END of those builds.
- Stygian Ebil Scythe and Abyssal Ebil Scythe display base stats, not values taking into consideration their special.

--The Little Details that count-- (Ras' Corner o thoughts)

Shadowspear
The best weapon a Warrior or Hybrid can get, and a great thing to have even for mages. Incredible with Ironthorn and outright the most accurate uber weapon out there. Unless you are a mage and prefer BIG100K then get Shadowspear!

Death Shard
Wow, just wow. A temporary weapon that takes some of the top spots in hybrid and Warrior damage, not too surprising considering the massive 700% special it has and the 10-34 range. The only reason this weapon is not that great is the fact that you have too many loops to get it: find and defeat the level 108 Demios, something that isn't very common. Being temporary also carries another issue, being the loss of the Blade of Awe (if youre a guardian), the best earth weapon there is; this weapon is powerful but considering the other very powerful options for darkness weapon and the fact that you have to get one every time you log in AND the fact it eats your no drop slot leads me to say that its not worth it. If you do get it though you do have the best darkness melee weapon there is, for a while

BIG100K
high damage, accurate, available at a low level, Special that heals you, and a trigger that turns it light vs undead, all rolled into the mega special bonus that it is VERY cheap at 100k gold. The weapon you want as a mage at the lower levels (70) and that will continue to be incredibly good even at the end game levels where it comes quite close to the top darkness weapon (Stygian Ebil Scythe), a stepping stone to a better weapon that has enough power as to put the other weapon on hold for quite a while.

Blackbones
An interesting little weapon for mages, its not that powerful considering it's a 100% weapon and doesn't have that strong of a %. Bonus though is that it does give 10%/10%/10% extra to all darkness spells (its own attack counts as a spell). Best weapon for mage if they like to be in Golden plate and something to keep in mind for those longer quests with few heals, considering it's attack also heals you some.

Grim Vestige
An incredible weapon for hybrids and warriors, also semi cheap (ztoken wise) and available at incredibly low levels. The ability to choose Ice/Darkness should never be overlooked, specially with an incredibly powerful special. So what is the catch? it is dual element and as such its special is darkness/ice all the time so the figures will change on monsters that dont have equal darkness to ice resistance, good thing though ice/darkness isn't that bad of a combination after all so its damage will almost never backfire. That being said this weapon doesn't rank #1 in my books for the following reasons: 1. Dual Elements make it hard for the weapon to actually hit what you want it to, for example if you fight something with 120% to darkness and 100% to ice you basically just lost 10% possible damage on the special, 2. it requires level 130 to reach the power reflected here, while the other weapons (save duality) have these stats regardless of your level.

Duality
Another Dual Element melee weapon, except with one bigger issue: this weapon is light/darkness and its special will conflict most of the time. Even then the weapon it self is very good and is an excellent buy. Do notice that its power will cap out at level 119 and the comparison uses those values. While the numbers in the comparison are indeed impressive (beating Shadowspear and running close to Grim Vestige) those are numbers at 100% defenses which is by far optimal for duality, with it's conflicting elements on special, the driving force to its sheer strength is largely fluctuating-- this is specially easily noticed on higher level monsters which have a marked tendency for low defense in either light/darkness and incredibly high defense on the other.

Vampiric Axe
An interesting weapon in that it not only has incredible stats but also a successful hit will provide an extra 15 HP life drain from the monster and give it to you! The bad thing is that it's special can really go off by you and cause you to loose a lot of life (and heal the monster by that amount). The only armor in which this provides a positive HP gain is in a 4 hit armor (nemesis plate, reign plate) on all other armors it will slowly produce a negative effect. Also in the higher MOBs you will loose even more life considering that if you dont connect there will be no drain, but the ever present special will still trigger. A good weapon though available at the lower levels for those that like "living on the dangerous side".

Necropolis Fleshrender
Clearly not an end game weapon, but still something decent and it does look very pretty. A great stepping stone in getting Shadowspear, or something to keep if you are more into looks than into raw damage, or if you are a rare collector you might wanna keep it in case it someday goes rare after the devourer saga is over.

Vartai Master's Blade
Such a low level, such a cheap weapon, such a massive amount of power. If you are one of the lucky players that managed to get this weapon keep it until you can afford to get Shadowspear, since at the higher levels its BTH will keep it from being an all star.

The Custom Weapon
The are high ranking weapon always in the warrior comparison providing good results for their low price, but potentially tedious quest. The real question is that if they are worth it. In my personal opinion i dont think the custom weapon is worth it at least when it comes to Darkness; warriors (the only build that con potentially benefit from the custom weapon) have a plethora of options which are available to their builds which are just as good if not outright better than the custom weapons. Do notice how they are still indeed strong weapons, im just saying that you should better reserve this kind of weapon for those elements that are lacking in other non rare non uber competitive weapons such as melee fire or wind, if you do want it Darkness it wont disappoint though.

Dragon King's Supreme Axe
A great weapon, which at pure mage max stats it beats big100k. Be warned though the results here might be easy to get swayed by, even with Dragon King's Supreme Axe beating BIG100K it still isn't a better weapon because this only occurs as a pure mage, and only at maxed stats, removing LUK or having non maxed DEX/LUK will cause a massive dip in damage from this weapon purely from accuracy. If you have this rare keep it, but do try to check first how it works for your character before thinking that it will instantly outstrip BIG100K from its throne

here is the example for Dragon King's Supreme Axe:

Asgardian @ 45 MOB using 200 INT/DEX [no LUK]
128.061 Dragon King's Supreme Axe
125.550 Big100k

Asgardian @ 65 MOB using 200 INT/DEX [no LUK]
123.665 Big100k
107.253 Dragon King's Supreme Axe

--

Asgardian @ 45 MOB using 200 INT/DEX/LUK
128.061 Dragon King's Supreme Axe
125.550 Big100k

Asgardian @ 65 MOB using 200 INT/DEX/LUK
124.801 Big100k
119.932 Dragon King's Supreme Axe


Elemental Seeker
Now here is an interesting weapon, its not pure darkness or any element for that matter, since this weapon has a greater elemental seek (meaning that it attacks the element which the opponent has the greatest weakness to even element X!). At 8-28 5% BTH it doesn't seem that mighty but if you look closely at the comparison (warrior and hybrid values) you'll see that this is a VERY decent weapon that ranks very highly, beating even things like custom weapons in many cases. The issue here with this great weapon is the life drain per hit you receive, 15 life lost per hit. If you like this weapon is a great acquisition that can help supplement any elements you also might feel need a weapon of the caliber, even at its cost. Can it beat Shadowspear? no but if you want extreme flexibility even if it comes at a cost you can look into this.

Zardmaster Lance
Interesting weapon, a great special of 750%/750% at a good rate (15%), its stats indicate that it favors the high random armors like Asgardian but suffers in low random ones like Nemesis much like another similar weapon with low base high random that recently came out (frozen flagpole series). Now is this weapon worth it? Id have to say that its definitely decent at the very least but if you want something you should go with Necropolis Fleshrender as your steeping stone towards Shadowspear, then again their values are rather similar and Zardmaster Lance is available 3 levels below Necropolis Fleshrender, but at a higher price. Pretty much anyones choice which is better than the other, another possible stepping stone in the quest for the most powerful weapons.

Venerable Chronoblade
This is an interesting weapon that has recently come out, what makes this weapon such a nice thing to get is the fact that it has a paralyzing special (16% rate) consisting of 2 hits ranged damage, that if they both land give 90% paralyze rate. Comparatively speaking this weapon compares exactly like Lumpy Skull Club, also a great weapon with an incredible special which many people dont use either. So what can the verdict be on this weapon? just like lumpy skull this weapon is to be used only if you like the special ability and only then, since there really isn't any chance this weapon will come in terms with big100k as the top spot, furthermore this can not be favorably compared like MEIK does to Nemesis Mace considering the fact that Paralyze does not provide abuse like Freeze-Burn does. In the end I would have to say this weapon is nice, but not a true top of the line weapon, stick to Big100k is you have it unless you really want the paralyze feature.

Calvarian Ebil Scythe
The best non token, non "uber", non temporary weapon available to both hybrids and warriors in what darkness weapons concerns. Comparable to big100k in the fact thats its special is very beneficial, healing an average of 60 HP per special. If youre a warriors, and dont own Shadowspear or Grim Vestige, get this weapon ASAP.

Stygian Ebil Scythe
The top Darkness Magic weapon to date. It soundly beats the previous title owner big100k in all armors and is only beaten by Dragon King's Supreme Axe (a rare) in Asgardian and only at the assumed 45 MOB and maxed stats. At less than optimal stats or higher MOBs there just isn't a magic darkness weapon that beats it, its cheap to boot and its special puts its damage even further above! if youre a mage get this weapon ASAP, there is no better. Speaking of the special here is just a small glimpse of what the special does to damage values single handedly:

Asgardian Plate @ Pure Mage 130 (200 INT/DEX/LUK) 45 MOB
147.211 Stygian Ebil Scythe (4 specials)
128.061 Dragon King's Supreme Axe
126.906 Stygian Ebil Scythe
125.550 Big100k
122.000 Banisher Scythe
119.475 Lumpy Skull Club
119.182 Venerable ChronoBlade

yup you see it now dont you, the special after capping increases damage by 20 DPT, never underestimate and average of 15% damage markup.

Migraine Club
a rare token weapon available for only limited amount of time, and what is the result? the #3 best weapon for hybrids and Warriors, so if you like rares and would like to have this weapon you cant go wrong with it. Draining in the special means that the relatively rare special is good on the longer quest, its great 10-29 damage means its great with high base-random abilities just a generally good weapon. If you have Shadowspear and dont care for rare, then skip this weapon, same can be said if about grim vestige, if you own it or if you have to tokens to buy this weapon you might be better off buying the cheaper but better grim vestige; your choice.

Ogre Shaman Staff
A level 85 weapon that is worth 120,000 gold. In my honest opinion its a weapon to completely and utterly skip, unless you really really really like its look. This weapon falls short only being slightly better than Lumpy Skull Club and Venerable Chronoblade in damage, two weapons which even then i would pick over this one considering their more useful special. Obviously it doesn't come close to Big100k or Stygian Ebil Scythe, in my opinion just get Big100k a weapon that is both cheaper and available sooner than this weapon is, then move one to Stygian later on.

being a high level weapon comparison only level 65+ weapons are added, for the lower levels you have to try the Mid-Level Darkness Comparison (levels 35-65), although considering the stats I might make an exception after some testing.

Valhallan Added!

also added Fatal Razor Fan (85) and Death Shard (temporary)

@krcgenk00: thankies for the spell check, god knows I need it XD

@Koree: Fatal Razor Fan (85) has been added, As for Soda Popper and Ninja Stars they wont be, the reason for this is that 100% special ranged weapons are better reserved and compared in the Darkness Weapon Comparison for Rangers and I think its a great idea since 100% ranged weapons will just not provide good results in a non ranger comparison. As I can see from your character link you are looking for that kind of comparison anyways

---

also: Venerable Chronoblade and Sackleberry Lance to be added as soon as the pedia entry exists.

In Ras' Corner o' thoughts, you state that Death Shard has a 1050% special, when in fact it's a 700%/700/0%. Because I was curious, I went to check if it was just a typo or if you had messed everything up. Unfortunately, the values are wrong. I'll get the proper numbers if I can. D:

(I think there might be some mistake on the spreadsheet regarding that., because even if Val and ShC have the same Base and Random, Val's first hit should be ranged meaning it'd get some stat bonus which should give it an advantage, just something to lookout for <_<).

@gus:
/me snuggles Gus for his love in boredom

updated already, and caught your mistake: Zardmaster Lance is RANGED not melee, as such the values are different :p

Silliness aside, the reason for the exact numbers are that Aqua's spreadsheet wasn't auto calculating the first hit of Valhallan (or Asgardian it seems) as ranged >.<, then again I re-downloaded the sheet and it worked... dont really know what's happening seems it happens sometimes

Let it be noticed that Black Watexx is not actually on the comparison considering its a rare that little to no persons have and will most likely never come back (Unecesary Number clot in the comparison), But on to the actual point:

False, Black Wartexx although powerful does not beat Shadowspear.

If you run a proper comparison Shadowspear comes out on top all of the time on both hybrid and warrior stats save in Asgardian plate ( Black Wartexx 137.45 DPT vs Shadowspear 135.87 DPT), but you do have to notice how this is at maxed stats with 45 MOB. Above 45 MOB and lower than maximized stats (specially in Dexterity) will lead to a dip in average damage from Black Wartexx that leads Shadowspear to be on top.

Furthermore, Shadowspear has an inherent advantage over Black Wartexx (or Dark Wartexx and every other darkness melee/ranged weap) in its use with the ever popular Ironthorn, whose use with Shadowspear leans on borderline broken. While Black Wartexx might get a boost the inherent 0% BTH coupled with Ironthorn -20 BTH penalty will cause it to miss much, Furthermore you have to notice how Shadowspear's special will get enhanced to a massive 1600%/1200%/200% something that no weapon can really compete with.

In a general sense Shadowspear is the darkness weapon to have for a hybrid or warrior (and if you like the ironthorn interection even mages).

the comparison numbers above on both Hybrid and Warrior show the correct results for Dark Wartexx, a weapon which is powerful but only useful at full stats due to its BTH and not worth its huge 10k token price considering a weapon worth much less (Grim Vestige) can beat it soundly.



@grimnahk: While your point is valid id like to point out to you that here are some giant flaws in the comparison you did.
-For one Shadowspear does not have a 30% rate in its special, it has 15% special rate.
-Along that same line Shadowspear does not have a 200%/200%.0 special on each of its hits (400%/400%./0) - from what I can see the sheet input reflects that since base for each special is 16 (200%*8=16) and random 60 (200% * 30 = 60) giving you a possible range of 400%/400%/0 rather than the much superior 800%/600%/200% range that Shadowspear actually has (Much better than Black Watexx's 600%/600%/0 special)
-BTH on Shadowspear special is +20 not +10 as your comparison has listed
- The Comparison Tool does not take stats into consideration for Shadowspear's special, something which basically can give as much as +35 BTH and +25 damage on each special hit at maxed stats.

All of these incoherences lead to the erroneous results you got. Although I do have to commend you since you have taken the initiative and actually attempted to do a comparison rather than just claiming things without any kind of proof. I do recomend you download for further comparisons: Aquadorian's Weapon Comparison Sheet since its the best, most accurate and most complete comparison tool for weapons.

Ninja Star
