    Remember When Lances Were Cool?

    Kinda showing my age here, but anybody playing long enough to remember when lances were the best ww weapon you could find? High dam lances would go for $300+ on ebay at one time and I remember one going for over $1000...

    well today I found a rare that is 298% ED w/8% LL. I almost was going to walk right by it, but I need to res my merc.

    So I put it on merc who already had a reapers (toll and a bonehew to choose from) just to see if it kept him alive longer.

    I wasn't playing when lances were cool, but I remember when martels were cool because lances weren't in the game yet. I also remember a couple badass barbs back then who were using pikes because they knew once lances were put in the game they would be the best.

    And frostburns were the best gloves, and treads of cthon the boots of kings, and it seemed like everyone was wearing Tarnhelm, lol. And you could gamble up every one of them in just a few minutes.

    Ah, nostalgia.

    Actually I do believe spears were the best? Lances came with the expansion if I'm not mistaken. And as far as pvp spears were still not the best as there were still many good s/s barbs even back then (i.e. darius). But yes I fondly remember those days of 897 defense ornates, dual stat items, dual leech rings.

    lances = pre-expansion. Yes, S/S barbs > lance barbs.

    btw, nobody said that lancers were the best.
    He just asked if we remember when they were cool. there was a time when lancers were godly. :surprise:

    Don't forget iceblink. It's one of the reason I like IK set, it give me that iceblink effect which I long missed.

    Lances and stilettos were introduced into classic in patch 1.04. The expansion didn't come out until patch 1.08 (retail version was at 1.07).

    Yeah the good old times
    The time when:
    • Russbarb and Gerbarb were in a race for first lvl 99. It took them months :lol:
    • A belt with cold damage was godly
    • Everyone was trying to get a 12 second Eye of Etlich
    • You rushed a char to lvl 29 with 2x soj for the lightning damage and then imbued two lances hoping for kings merciless

    these days are never coming back :(

    I found a great rare belt with cold damage the other day...know if raven frost wasn't the only source of CBF I could use it...but as it is the stats alone don't do it...but stats + cold would if Raven didn't give it to me
