    Default Best weapon

    ok, this might be a stupid question but...what is the best shortsword currently?

    i have a dexbased twf wizard12/ranger6/monk2 and run dual Envenomed Blades currently and would like to know if there is a better overall weapon, could save a few ap then for the dex to damage/tohit since Envenomed Blades do that by default already

    thanks in advance

    Rebellion is a very good shortsword as well, especially if you are looking to get some sneak attack damage in. This comes from FOT raid.

    Star of Day is a cheap and pretty decent substitute until you can pull a Celestia in CITW.
    Drow Shortsword of the Weapons Master are also up there and can be bought pretty cheaping on the AH, or farmed in EN Rusted blades.

    That weapon could have been coded a little more carefully. It's kinda like a Sun Blade, a bastard sword that's light enough to be wielded by someone proficient with short swords. But it's still a bastard sword. It should be coded to do slashing damage, not piercing.
    All that is wrong with DDO, life, taxes, poltics, religion, music, fast food, education, the criminal justice system, the weather, society, the universe, and previously-discontinued-but-now-on-their-way-back snack cakes, is all the fault of Wizards of the Coast. I know this because Fred told me so, and Mind Flayers are smart.

    You are confused. It does light damage.
    Nothing slashing, nothing piercing.

    In regards to coding, you either need to create a completely unique weapon sort (slashing, possible THF feats, light weapon, usable if someone has short sword profs, affected by what? B. Sword damage from arti? Rogue shortsword enhancements?, etc, etc, etc.), and then you get Sireth - cool weapon, has a few issues.

    Don't really see a reason to change it, just complication for no real gain.

    Epic Envenomed blades are good for trash with their enervation, for pure boss dps though celestia.
