DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

We appealed a CSR because Dob wasn't spawning, apparently he's the rarest spawn in the game.

There is a quest for highest damager pierce weapon in Hibernia. It's a dirk that is a one time drop out of a bear in the bog. You must have 30 pierce base stat to equip it, but all pierce trainable classes can get the drop which I believe is at level 49. Hero's Ranger's and Champions will get the drop.

Start in Ailinne Bin in the Bog. Head out of town to the east, ne along the shore and turn left into the swamp after about 150 yards or so. You have to kill the savage fishing bears to get Dob to spawn, but he is Bigger than other bears and easier to see, though not as big as the enormous bears in the frontier. I killed bears for about a half hour before he spawned. It's not too easy as the area is fraught with siabra waterwalkers as well as bears and the bears can be hard to see, you will need the backing of a strong party, preferably 5 or more people about to help you farm the bears for dob. Exact location I killed dob at was in the Bog of Cullen, 47.4k, 35.3k.

Reward: 1 time drop, Dob's bloody Fang has a dd97 proc on it. Highest total damage for a piercer I have seen in game so far, though not good for backstabs. Requires 30 pierce stat to equip.

"There is a quest for highest damager pierce weapon in hibernia..."
That is not true a masterpiece arcanite guarded rapier will have an effective dps of 16.5 while this only has 16.2, 16.5 > 16.2, what I think they are trying to say is the highest damaging OFF-hand equipable piercer in the game right now. Then again come v1.54 there'll be the Angled Dagger craftable off-hand weapon which has a dps of 16.5...

I was at the loc in the instructions and Dob's was there already. Guess I got luck. He conned Orange to a 50 NS and I had A Hero and Bard with me. Hero Got the drop as well and gave it to me. I compared it to a 99% quality Guarded Rapier and the Dob's Effective DPS is .2 better. All though the GR has much better PA damage. I am only Realm rank 2 so GR might be better when I make Rank 5 L 5. 100% quality GR more then likely has the same DPS as Dob's.

Dob's Efective DPS at 50 is 16.2 I am guessing at 5 L 5 its jumps to 16.5

My bad Dob's Max DPS is 16.2. I would think that the 100 % Quality GR is better because of the greater PA damage and will have a higher effective dps at 5 L 5 then Dob's.

I've received conflicting reports of where to find Dob. Anyone know if the loc here is a good one?
Doesn't matter anymore

Backstab Damage is a fixed static amount unlike regular combat styles. All stealth critical strikes are purely based off the style itself and Critical Strike skill. A heavier weapon does not give a higher damage bonus to things like Perforate Artery and Backstab II etc.

The former reason to use a slower weapon to do a Crit Strike was to do more base damage with the weapon to make sure you one shot killed the target so you did not unstealth. Considering that you can no longer stay stealthed, it's kind of pointless. Unless, it's absolutely necessary to one shot kill the target and you think you'll miss it by a relatively small amount of damage.

A good assassin with a set of 2.2 second dirks need not worry about a second hit if it's that close in any case. The DoT will take care of that if you tip your right hand weapon. Just hit and move along.

If you dont weapon type has some effect on Crit Strikes, you have never been Crited by a shadowblade. They use 2-h for Crits and do much better damage then us.

2h weapons don't hit harder because they're slower, they're slower because they have higher dps & hit harder. Somebodys a bit confused =P

Plus, contrary to popular beliefs, SBs suck. Shades rocks.. I wouldnt trade my shout or viper for an infiltrator or a shadowblade.

Oh, also..contrary to what's popular, a lot of 1h slashers are just as fast as many piercers, it's just there are slower slashers available than piercers...

for backstabs you want a high dammage weapon, ex. shard of light or glimmerspirit sword, then switch back to two fast weapons for combat.
