    Default Help with llvl 28-30 non-raid swashbuckling sentient weapon for ETRing

    I've been ETRing for Epic Completionist on a Pure Bard Swashbuckler and I need help for my level 28+ weapon.

    From 20-25 I've been using an Epic Mournlode with a sentient jewel.
    From 26-27 I still use Tier 2 Thunder-Forged (slightly better than my sentient jewel for now)

    I need some help with what to use in the 28-30 tier. What are good Swashbuckler weapon options for sentience in these levels? I usually use bludgeoning, but I could change that. Since I solo 99% of the time, I don't have access to Raid equipment for the moment.

    I think I have all epic packs, except for the Sharn Expansion.

    Thanks!

    I have used both a https://ddowiki.com/page/Item:Legendary_Forgotten_Axe and a https://ddowiki.com/page/Item:Legend...nister_Handaxe with great success on high level swashbucklers and neither are raid weapons. You could also use Morninglord or Nightmothers if you did not have either of the above farmed up yet.

    What kind of weapon are you swashbuckling with (ex. hand ax, dagger, etc).

    I have been using light maces (both mournlode and thunder-forged). But I can change that; it's basically a matter of which Imp. Critical feat to get when eTRing and I can spare the resources to refashion one new mournlode and thunder-forged weapon type...

    Maybe not the best, but i like the Legendary Planar Spike (from Toxic Treatment) with Solipsism.

    If you run in Legendary Dreadnaught, the Legendary Forgotten Axe is probably your best bet.

    If you don't use Legendary Dreadnaught, you might check out the ML28 Epic Cutthroat's Smallblade from Crystal Cove. Cove should be back soon.

    Aside from those 2 weapons, pretty much anything Morninglord's is decent and arguably your best option.

    OK, big catch. I can't even handle the first dragon on Black and Blue. Too much damage for not enough PRR and HP on my part, I guess...

    I'm from Ghallanda. Look for "Ballrus" if you need a hand.
