Would like to do weapon STR testing; need base-ish weapons. (in General)

QBOddBird September 2 2007 10:34 AM EDT

Hi! If you're reading this thread, maybe you can be of some help to me.

I need to borrow a few near-base weapons to do some ST/damage testing; just crunching a few numbers and checking out the results. But to do this, I'd need these weapons, and they'd all have to have EXACTLY the same X:

BoNE -92
Exec -82
MH -84
BoTH -73
ELS -80
VB -63
Katana -74
THF -66

So if you have any of these weapons, near base, and you wouldn't mind letting me borrow it for a day or two, just post here with the weapon's stats to let me know - and if it's OK with you that I raise your weapons 'X' a little to put it even with everyone else's, that'd be even better.

Thanks for looking! ^_^

I have:
A Blade of Thuringwethil [73x32] (+17)
A Two-Handed Flail [66x7] (+7)

at your disposal

lostling September 2 2007 11:58 AM EDT

A Vorpal Blade [63x26] (+9)

AdminNightStrike September 2 2007 12:24 PM EDT

[63x96] (+13)

noneedforthese September 2 2007 3:39 PM EDT

A Blacksword of Nan Elmoth [92x3] (+7)

About as base as you'll get ;)

Flamey September 2 2007 5:26 PM EDT

A Katana [74x26] (+11)
A Katana [74x10] (+9)

I've got these.

QBOddBird September 2 2007 5:45 PM EDT

So then, that'd be offers of:

BoNE - noneedforthese
Morg -
Exec -
Katana - Flamey (2)
BoTH - toitle
THF - toitle
VB - lostling, Nightstrike

And the majority of these would be able to meet at an X of 32.

If you DO NOT want me to BS your weapon up to match the others, PLEASE say so. However, I'd prefer to get all the weapons to exactly the same 'X' value for testing...let me know! And thanks to everyone who has offered thus far - very generous of you all! ^_^

AdminNightStrike September 3 2007 2:44 AM EDT

I sent all of my other weapons to Miandrital. Ask him what the stats are. As for BS'ing, BS away.

Flamey September 3 2007 4:46 AM EDT

BS mine all you want, they're just rentals. :)

A Lesser AR of 15 [Red Permanent Assurance] September 3 2007 11:20 AM EDT

[84x6] (+7) CM when you'll have to BS this for me.

QBOddBird September 3 2007 11:28 AM EDT

BoNE - noneedforthese
Morg - Gun
Exec -
Katana - Flamey (2)
BoTH - toitle
THF - toitle
VB - lostling, Nightstrike

Alright, this looks great so far!

And can do, Gun. I'll CM you when I need to BS it. As soon as I have someone for the Exec and the ELS, or I manage to catch something base for cheap in Auctions, I'll be set to go! =D Another big thanks to:

toitle, Flamey, Nightstrike, lostling, noneedforthese, and Gun!

AdminShade September 3 2007 11:52 AM EDT

I have a base katana, CM me if needed.

Zhate September 3 2007 3:31 PM EDT

I actually have a MH that's at exactly 32x, so CM me if you want to borrow it.

theskier [Star Trek] September 4 2007 8:56 PM EDT

I have an els x16 + 10 that you could use.... I was working on on forging it up, so feel free..

smallpau1 - Go Blues [Lower My Fees] September 5 2007 10:30 AM EDT

Katana [74x10] (+6)

DrAcO5676 [The Knighthood III] September 5 2007 11:06 AM EDT

An Executioner's Sword [82x11] (+4) for when you need it m8

QBOddBird September 5 2007 12:19 PM EDT

BoNE - noneedforthese
Morg - Zhate, Gun
Exec -Ranger, DrAcO
ELS - theskier
Katana - Flamey (2), smallpau1, Shade
BoTH - toitle
THF - toitle
VB - lostling, Nightstrike

This looks great, and I'll start sending out CMs now if people could start sending/loaning weapons! I already have weapons from:

BoNE: noneedforthese
Exec: Ranger

so I just lack the others... time to do some testing! =D

QBOddBird September 6 2007 12:23 AM EDT

I've begun the data collection and input into my Google Document on the Executioner's Sword.

I'll be collecting data on each weapon at:

BL at .60
STR at 1.015M, 730k, and 500k, respectively;
completely unprotected target
20 fights at each ST, yielding a hopeful total of 150-200 blows per weapon, per ST.

I currently have been loaned one of each weapon except the VB - and I'm not too worried about that yet, as I'm going to be rushing to get testing done on each of the current weapons I've got before they return as it is. ^_^

If anyone is interested in following my progress, it's on Google Docs; just gotta figure out how to share those...should be visible sometime soon though! ^_^

Thanks yet again to everyone who has been so helpful and generous with their spare weapons! =D

Lumpy Koala September 6 2007 1:34 AM EDT

I have A Vorpal Blade [63x47] (+9) .. not sure if that's good for your data collection or not

QBOddBird September 13 2007 10:01 AM EDT

I'm currently putting data in on some weapons, so for those of you who have had their loaned weapons return, please do not re-loan them yet - I'll ask you if I need you to do so.

Thanks everyone! ^_^

Although most of the data is on .TXT files on my desktop, it will be updated onto a Google Document Spreadsheet as I work through it and published for all to see on this link:

Weapon STR Testing

drudge September 13 2007 2:42 PM EDT

i dunno if you wanna test again..but i got a An Elven Long Sword [80x10] (+2)

toitle September 13 2007 2:46 PM EDT

I find it amusing that your first blow with the 730k str is almost the same as the avg for 1mil+ :)

QBOddBird September 13 2007 2:59 PM EDT

Updated it with a few more of the Exec 730k data and the beginnings of the Morg 1.015M data.

There's some interesting stuff there. ~_^
