Isn't the giant stalker knife suppose to be giant bane?

Yes it is, or was (now debating this as it appears yours may be different).

What is your's saying it is? Or rather what makes you ask?

Maybe something has changed or there is a bug in how it is being generated, but it used to be Giant bane of greater Giant bane.

That it is just +1 kurki but with a description that it was made by Drows to hunt giants nothing about any Giant bane or greater Giant bane

A long time ago...
The giantstalker knife was working improperly, and did not give the correct bane dmg.

That was fixed, although not retroactively.
I'm sure Ziggy, the only person AR enough to actually care, can point you to the relevant post.

Either way, it sounds like you have an older version, if you were planning to use it, too bad. Your best bet is to find another, or simply cry softly in a corner.

Anther possibility is that you are blind, and are not correctly reading the paragraph describing "Greater Giant Bane", but that seems miniscule, as you got the +1 part down pat.

There were problems on Risia involving bane weapons not having the bane portion. If this is a recent acquirement, bug report it.

If you are unable to resolve the "problem" and you are on Thelanis let me know I have a bunch of them.

I had some banes that lost their bane quality during the merge I contacted a gm in game and after bumping up to lvl 2 the gm looked at the items and traded me ones the were correct. took 30 min or less total.

Actually during the merge I had a +2 protection ring turn into a +2 resistance ring. A little annoying when I found out but I had another to swap it with so no real harm done. Didnt bother waiting on a reponse from a ticket, I just sold the new resistance one.

Wierd things happen, and GMs can correct these problems if they want to, its just that not all want to or know they can even do it apparently.

My ranger dual wields those against giants +5 to hit and 1d6+3d6: it's called mass murder.
