    Default Call out to other players: Post your Vorpal Keen-Edges please

    Hello all,

    I am searching the AH on several servers for Vorpal Keen-Edge weapons for quite some time now. And I am beginning to worry that the combination doesn't exist. Would people be so kind and post a screeenshot if you got one?

    Alternatively I would be happy for a reaction from SSG to this question, of course.

    Does Keen Vorpal and/or Vorpal Keen-Edges (still) get generated in the game?

    Thanks in advance.


    Cheeers,
    Titus.

    They did prior to the "new and improved" random generated loot for HC3 update went live. Afterwards I couldn't tell you :/

    Unfortunately there is now more options available which directly makes it harder for "ideal" loot combinations to drop.

    Besides I always preferred Vorpal/Draining myself.

    As this reply shows, you have to search for keen and then manually hover each item to see if the vorpal affix is also there.
    If you try to search for both keen and vorpal the search engine of the auction house will give no results (as the vorpal affix dissapears like every other affix combined with keen.)

    I think both attributes still drop. I don't know why someone would want both on a weapon. Either keen + critical <something> (for damage) or vorpal + stunning (for CC)

    The combo exists - I have a +2 Keen/Vorpal dagger, ML:4. But it dropped some time ago, before the latest loot revamp.

    Ah, yep. The problem should be fixed moving foward as of the random loot patch (new Keen suffixes will no longer overwrite the prefix) but there's no way to fix the currently existing random/crafted loot with this issue. Behind the scenes, Keen is a Prefix and has prefix string overrides set, but was dropping in a suffix table, making it the second prefix applied - therefore overwriting the original name.

    Before a toon has Improved Crit, "keen" is the way to go.

    That is the question...

    @ Lyn' - It ~seems~ that Vorpal is not nearly as common in low-level loot lists (e.g. The Harbor) as it used to be. While I can see some justification for this in-game, it'd be nice to know if that's the case, or whether it's just some bad luck (hence "appearances"). Is it possible that the % has been (significantly) diluted/decreased due to the new additional effects?

    Comment?

    Am I the only one thinking Vorpal is pretty overrated these days? It was pretty good in the old days.

    Sovereign Vorpal is still good.

    But regular "vorpal"? Yeah, it's nothing to write home about.

    YMMV, but I find that low level vorpal repeating crossbows are still pretty darn nice to have. Not saying I couldn't manage without one, but until at least lvl 10 weapons (RL) become available, I use a vorpal if I can.

    I think it really depends on the difficulty level and your own levels of power. Leveling on mid to high reaper, vorpal is often faster than DPSing down a non-protected mob, at least in my experience. R1 and below, good DPS makes vorpal largely irrelevant. If I didn't have the gear I have plus the past lives, I might still want vorpal even below R4.

    I know how to search for it.
    I know that Vorpal Keen dropped before the revamp.

    My question was:
    Does Keen Vorpal and/or Vorpal Keen-Edges (still) get generated in the game?

    I haven't seen the old combination drop so far. That is possible because of a low drop rate. But I haven't seen the new combination anywhere. And by anywhere I mean both AHs on every server.

    Is the new combination even possible?

    Cheers,
    Titus.

    It's still quite good when you are fighting enemies who don't have substantially over 1000 HP. The HP lock on insta-killing is the real downer. But when you can walk up to a monster and roll a 20 on the first attack and it flops over dead, this is very satisfying and effective.

    It's nothing compared to the OLD days, when Vorpal was an on-crit effect, and you'd have people with a vorpal weapon and a 13-20 critical range just annihilating whole maps before anybody else could get into the room.

    hi titus,

    yes, vorpal of keen edge weapons do drop after the random gen u46p2 update:





    (you can tell that these are post u46p2 random gen weapons because they follow the new keen suffix naming "of keen edges")

    Quote Originally Posted by cru121 View Post

    this might be true - I will have to keep an eye out; when the random gen update changed it so that certain u46p2 "special enchantments are now included in random loot from levels 5 and above", it might also have made it now so that vorpal only drops on random gen weapons starting at ml5.

    That answered my question.

    Ballrus, did your weapon drop recently? After the random loot patch?

    Nope. A few years.
    After last update, only saw vorpal/keen with min lvl 5, maybe still drop with min lvl 1?
