    Default Good Scimitars?

    So I went and picked Undying Court for my faith, and I've got one adventure pack with a named scimitar, Ruins of Gianthold. The question is, then, is it Cruel Nobility and Royal Scimitar (ML 14)? I'm level 20, am not going into epics, and am not reincarnating. I'm fighting with a shield, too.
    (should have probably gotten Vale of Twilight...)
    ??




    Thanks.

    The problem with focusing on the most extreme of players is that that group will only get smaller and smaller... Oof
    You know you have a problem when a virtual fantasy game ruins your concept of real world money and its value.

    The two scimitars you named are pretty old and outdated, you'd probably be better off cannith crafting something than using those.

    If you don't have them already you're pretty much going to need some more packs and/or expansions to get any decent scimitars at upper heroic / lower epic levels.

    The heroic scimitar from the Ravenloft expansion is easy to get and ML 10 but good enough to use all the way to 20 if necessary.

    I haven't looked at the heroic sharn expanison craftable scimitars but I imagine they are ok as well and would be ML 15 for the heroic version.

    Vulkoor's Edge looks pretty nice, you would need the Disciples of Rage pack for that. (Lot's of other nice items from that pack as well)

    If you have the Menace of the Underdark expansion and want to get to at least level 21 there is the drow scimitar of the weaponmaster which is very nice. It also binds on equip so there is a chance you can buy on from someone.

    And if you have a sentient gem, slot it into the drow weapon before you equip it, and it will remain bound to account forever, instead of binding to character.

    Thanks.
    1. In Eveningstar, you could farm the required challenge mats (daily free token) and try your luck with a lv20 cormyrian scimitar. Those also accept sentient gems.

    2. Cannith crafted scimitar with red slot, preferably adamantine or silver, with good in prefix and bludgeon/pierce in suffix. Hard to find a proper base item, but very cheap to craft.
