Vorpal Blade vs. Katana (in General)

A Vorpal Blade [75x50] (+30) $2,457,312

A Katana [74x50] (+30) 2,598,718

thanks to Monty for the Vorpal Blade stats :)

as you can see the NW's of both items arent much apart from eachother
katana is only 150K more expensive

As Jon stated the upgrade costs of a VB is between that of a Katana and Exec.

Guess this proves he was telling the truth.

Would be nice to compare it now to a x50 +30 exec

...and with that confirmation added to the fact that the VB has a higher base damage and eats through AC/Endurance/Protection better, I hereby declare the Katana semi-worthless! *smile*

anyone have a close Exec I could perhaps forge it to x50 +30 for a small fee :)

an idea: we could all pitch in to BS an Exec to x50 +30 wouldn't cost much if a good bit of us helps. then we could have a raffle or contest for it. or give it to a newb

i look on my VB BS fee and the +cost much less that the X is that normal?

Yes, I think this marks the death of Katana as a "rare" item. I figure Two handed flails will be forgotten and katanas left in stores when a camper runs across one =P

Remember VB isn't a store spawn blade. So theoratically 1 year from now, newb has better chance with a kat than a VB.

An Executioner's Sword [82x54] (+23) 2,347,342
An Executioner's Sword [82x32] (+5) 502,789

i have both of these if you are looking to compare. i am also interested in getting it upgraded to +30 as well (the x54 one). a match made in heaven.

Very true, Arorrr...

Though in the meantime, that makes the VB even MORE valuable than a Katana because of it's eventual rarity. *smile*

Oh, and can we get "VB" added to the spell checker?

Duke, for most items + costs less than X
