The first person to ever get a legendary weapon.

That sounds like it should be a once a week buff or have it's proc rate lowered a lot. Or have 2 sides to it, a debuff of some sort and a buff. Double Edge Godly Weapons.

I see 2 options to balance out that weapon, so other got a fighting chance against the boss or PvP.

But if they block it for the use in PvP, then they can leave it as it is (Ultimate tank item).

Option 1: When recieving the "enlightment" buff, youre attack power is reduced. Making it in a regen/tanking item.

Option 2: Reducing the % rate to receive the stacking buff.

And as final, not a option. No discusion (even though it's the general discusion board).

Half the amount of Chi you get, 10 chi is like complete advantage.

A slight advantage is something you can still fight against.

Option 1sounds fair enough. I also think such a weapon is far to unfair and should be blocked for PVP.

Because, mainly the "no lifers" will get such weapons, or people that pay hundreds of $/€ to reach the ~12k gold needed (or whatever you need) fast.

People that have to work much or/and not have that much freetime will most likely never get such weapon but rammed in the face.

It's just another thing that disadvantage people who can't play 10 hours a day.

But blocking it for PVP should be fair, since it is just too overpowered, never seen such gap between strong endgame weapon and legendary stuff in any other game.

Heres a video of how retarded OP the Legendary Enlightment procc actually is:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=spgRSyuIHWU

Especially take a look at the second part of the Video where he is taking hits from Mushin, those hits (Stun into Kick combo) can kill me on my assassin, he takes around 2% dmg... Its retarded.

Additional info:

According to one user who has the weapon, the 10 enlightenment proc must be done under 30 seconds since the first proc to receive the op buff.

Also, note that the 30% proc rate is not official. It just "feels" that way according to one report. It could actually be lower or higher.

The following is just my opinion.

Since there are so few people who actually have the weapon (probably less than 20 across all servers) nc will not nerf the weapon just yet.

The weapon itself is undeniably op in pvp. But I believe it would be a bit difficult to proc 10 stacks in proper 1v1 battles for the following reasons.

1. 1v1 fights are usually short. So the battle would usually end before you even stack 10 procs. I think..

2. Assuming the above info is true, and the proc rate is indeed 30%, that would mean you would have to land about 30 attacks in 30 seconds or an average of 1 attack every second. That would be a bit difficult to do because players move around a lot in pvp and many know how to use their defense moves effectively. It is also much more difficult to manage chi in pvp since left click normal attacks are really tough to land. (At least for melee classes. Ranged classes are a different story. hmm....)

Nevermind... please disregard what I wrote... the enlightenment proc timer resets after each proc ==

Waht do you think, can we make them in the beta?

And if so....what can we get, if you make one during beta? :hehe:

The badge of no life? XD but serious talk, if they have way better stats than regular cap level equip then I'd take 2-3 months myself to quest it. No point in rushing too hardcore into endgame.

This video clearly shows the power of legendary weapon. I like it!

Im not sure how you can like something as gamebreaking as this. Its retardedly OP and completly out of place. This weapon should have never been created like this. An Effect that basicly makes you imune to dmg for 30 Seconds is completly broken.

They HAVE to remove the Defence, Health, Heal, omgroflstomp effect of this weapon, the Damage, 10 Chi Regen and 4 Hexa slots are allready strong enough.

Hahahahahaha! Wtf. That is exactly how OP it sounded from the stats. That buff has to be completely disabled in pvp, it's the only way to balance it. I can see no good coming from this. At first only a handful of people will have these weapons and completely destroy everyone else then later when everyone has them fights will never end, later Team Bloodlust will nerf them and release new legendary weapons even more OP to start the race to obtain them again. Even without the buff they are still possibly the strongest weapons in the game, there is nothing wrong with being a little stronger than everyone else if you put in the time and effort but this is just...

:cold:

Of course they have to think it over again remove some stats etc. It seems they took the word "Legendary" very seriously.

I really didn't think it was THAT bad till I saw this, That blademaster had around 6 or 7(?) people attacking him and it took around 30 seconds to kill him? If you were to place one of those in a PvP match that's troll completely. I won't comment on it's nerf though until I can say EXACTLY how hard it is to get this weapon. Though once the gold buyers come into play yea, they need to nerf this thing to hell and come up with a new OP weapon

It's been tested that both the buff proc and 10 chi regen is about 10% chance. About 100 hits proc after hitting a practice dummy 1000 times.

Hi, i have some questions to ask about this legendary weapon.

1. Does other legendary weapon also have that insane HP regen+defense buff? or only for legendary sword?

2. Can LBM also use that sword? or do they have separate weapon just for LBM only?

3. Does anyone have link for the legendary weapons info?

Thanks :)

1. All legendary weapons have the same buff and specs. Just different names.

2. Since the weapon itself is not a drop item (no competition) LBMs and BMs share the same sword unlike other powerful swords.

3. Here is the basic specs for all legendary weapons

313 Attack

88 Defence Penetration

207 Crit

Chance to regen 10 Chi (according to tests about 10% chance)

Chance to get "Enlightment" stack (according to tests about 10% chance)

4 Hexa gem slots

Bind on equip (can be traded)

* Enlightment - each stack last 30s. At 10 stacks, you get a buff with the name of the weapon. Effects are...

Health and Defence +10000 (yes 10k)

Block and Evasion +1500

Health regen in battle +2500

Buff last 30 seconds. When the buff ends, all cooldowns are refreshed (with some exceptions)

I can go into the process of obtaining the weapon but no time right now. Maybe I'll update the wiki later...

Thx for the quick reply :)

does it mean the faster the atk speed of your character, the faster chance you to activate the buff ?(10% chance to activate). and which class has the highest atk speed? BM? LBM? and maybe FM and summoner would be slowest right?

Force Master together with KFM are probably doing the most attacks in a timeframe. Followed by BM then LBM + Sin + Destro, lowest attacks would be Smn (If it proccs on Cat attacks as well they would prolly be around LBM and the rest.

I looked at the nr. 1 place in rankings atm (A sin currently) and she had 31k life.

You can use this weapon in 1on1 and 3on3 that is why its balanty retarded and HAS to be nerfed for PvP. The effect has to be removed. While having the buff you are unkillable and basicly take 0 damage for 30 seconds!

I thought about it for a moment and I was wondering...

How are we supposed to get 10 stacks in the first place during pvp?

Each stack has just over 10% chance, which means you would have to hit about 100 times to get the buff.

Your opponent is going to be way dead by then since it also has massive damage.

Maybe there is some use in open world pvp but the buff is nearly useless in 1v1 and 3v3 arena battles unless the fight last the entire 5 min.

If that happens then it's an over the top tie breaker.

Inb4 20 hits 10 proccs on luck. Doesnt matter how hard it is to get. Especially FM, LBM, Destro, SMN will have a good chance of getting it. Its simply a broken stat. Even in PvE this shouldnt exist.

Why not in PvE? I'd like a broken weapon I worked incredibly hard for on those days when I'm questing or instancing and I'm feeling lazy :sob:

Well, I'll definitly be one of those that will have the weapon relativly fast but nevertheless, I don't like weapons that give you a freewin and are way stronger compared to anything else. I dont mind a simple damage boost (Wich is definitly has, having high damage, 4 Sockets and 10 Chi regen) but Im not a fan of a weapon that will make be completly invunerable.

More damage, faster killing -> Yes please

Lowering Skillcap -> No please

But in the end, it will most likely be released like this and no matter how much I dispise it, I'll just deal with it I guess... The only hope is that its at least remove from PvP :P
