Proc Weapons

Postby Gorka » Thu Jan 04, 2018 6:47 pm

So there are weapons in the game with procs which do additional things other than roll a dice and hit a mob. Apparently they used to be more of a "thing" back in the days when perhaps the players were a little more hardcore. I've been doing some inquiries and come to these conclusions...

1) There is no listing of proc weapons.
2) There is no way to tell from the Eq List is a weapon is a proc weapon.
3) There is no easy way the immortals can be more transparent about proc weapons, it's complicated.
4) The information about proc weapons is in the head of some key players, but isn't disseminated widely.

Here is my proposal for players...

Step 1, we create a comprehensive list of proc weapons by collaborating in this thread.
Step 2, we attempt to list and measure the effect of the procs on these weapons using counters.
Step 3, we bask in the glory of our collaborative efforts to improve player information.

Commencing step one... (Myself even if no one helps...)

Raven's Fire 3d4 +1 +1 (Flame Tounge Proc) Damage: Not yet measured.

an emerald broadsword: shields the target. Should shield the wielder. Proc rate around 1d10?
a crimson rapier, 3d4, fireball proc
the zweihander: has two procs around 25 dam each: first it drains power from the victim, then unleashes it on it

Proc damage on this weapon is disappointing, the fireball proc doesn't appear to do the damage a fireball should or it does not use saves and spelldam.
