First off, trading is for the trading forum ok? We aren't here to tell you values and what not.

However, I can tell you that those are some very nice weapons, and that they will still be worth a bundle for anyone who duels non-Ladder. Good luck trading them.

I'm sure the Valuation forums wouldn't mind you asking :)

There are only two things the Druid forum hates:

Trading in the wrong place, and Trolls/Flamers.​

Don't do those two things, and you'll be fine.

Oh, we hate the Pit, too.

Nah, I mean the Pit of Strid Sexing. Totally different.
why the h8? we live there ><

i play east, but looking at those items, they are neat, but the price of them decreased tremundously because of the BotDs.

view on the GT: With a slight slower attack speed, you can use an ethereal GPA or GT and do a lot more damage and get more beneficial mods instead. And also, theres the coolness factor of the item being ethereal. I personally own 2, (one shael shael, other is ed/ias shael), ive tried trading them, but all i get from ppl are "rofl nub, botd > it, jajajaja". East trade forum is pretty much dead because many of the traders quit due to 1.10. I havent seen a nice magic item being traded anymore, i assume botd craze over there too.

for the two other weapons, they are real nice. i personally find that cryptic very attractive. however, the fanged knife, i am not sure, i think ppl are settling for botds zerks on east also. 9/5 vs 7/4 (for fanged iirc). I would go for eth botd zerk because range 3 helps a lot when you know how to shift fury properly.

overall, those items are pretty good, but botds are taking over. however, that cryptic sword, keep it, that is uber seksi.

you are very welcome.

oh, to add, fanged knives used to be godly because by putting lots of dex, you would be adding ar AND damage which was uber seksi instead of going for a titan build which most melee druids do. sometimes werebears lacking the ar. problem is sorta sovled with the help of going for a dex build revolving around the fanged knife. you would be hitting at 5fpa maul IIRC which is just 1 frame slower than the fastest legit frame, you would be doing a lot more damage instead of using a phase blade, and you have the ar to help more. in 1.09, more ar->more damage->more life leech which made the cruel fanged knives of quick (2 sockets) quite sought for on east. i remember i had a battle with a couple of traders for a cfkq no sockets left, it started from one rune, ended with 19 runes. but then again, there was a rollback method, so yeah... no comment. unfortunately leech doesnt work the same anymore in pvp wise, so, fanged knifes are no longer that popular.

Lodtrader, consider yourself warned.

Bypassing the swear filter and "innocently" posting trade threads every few days.

Next offense is a ban.

Yea man.
Kick ***
and kick amoneymoney is a big deal :teeth:
The items are nice, I think they are still pretty useful for a nl pvp druid.
