I guess I should've posted a pic. I'm just so lazy though! I wish I'd screenshotted the older req 8 11-21 Scrying Glass Staff I got from Vaettir since I *think* it was HSR 20%, but like you said End, sometimes people make mistakes. Here's an attachment with the 18/10/11-21 Inscribed though.

It's pwetty O.O

re-edit: sorry slightly umm impaired atm xD

re-re-edit: wait maybe it is still worth posting. God I can't think straight xD Yeah didn't start checking reqs of weapons til a recent convo with firefighter fred about this thread.


unrelated edit:
Anyone find it odd that some of these come from vaettir farming which is normally done in hard mode? I mean I would think that normal mode would be where all these would be found.

Nothing odd about it, whites/blues can drop as low as req.7 in Hard Mode no matter how high the level of monster dropping it is. And it's the huge piles of white trash drops that nobody picks up that we should all watch in order to find best possible req.7 and req.8 stats.

Thanks for the shots! I've added them to the OP.

End, I assumed those two you posted above came from a recent Vaettir run - let us know if not.

As for low req drops in HM, I know I've seen a max (16 ar) white r8 shield drop in HM. I was out after some WiK bounty once, and had one drop from that Warrior WiK boss (Carnak the Angry or something) in the Black Curtain on my way to Kessex Peak. I wouldn't have been out on a bounty in NM to begin with, but I remember it because I'd thought there were no max r8 drops in HM anymore, too.

ANet should change /help from linking to the wiki ... it should simply link us to whispering Yawgmoth instead.

I'm copying this pic off Gaugamela's thread because it has mulitple examples of prenerf max r7 shields and swords ... blue and white ones even!



In case Imageshack flakes out or the pic gets wiped later, it shows ...
  • a blue "Magmas Shield," ar 16, r7 str, inherent ar +7 vs. Charr (merch value 76g)
  • a white "Eternal Shield," ar 16, r7 str
  • a white "Oni Blade," 15-22, r7
  • a white "Fellblade," 15-22, r7
  • a blue "Fiery Dragon Sword," 15-22, r7 (merch value 74g)

By all means, please do post your pics and share! The list in the OP is simply the best reported here so far. There's no rule against breaking the records.

I shall see if i have a screenie of any recent drops
got req 8 gold 19-35 15>50 war hammer from trolls(lol) about 3 weeks ago - so these certainly still drop
cant speak for caster weps besides focii which clearly drop r8 12e regularly
i assumed all martial weps still dropped as max r8s (in tyria/cantha)
did they make some update i missed?

Since Nightfall release only req8 drops possible (inherent and inscrp!) should be offhands, swords and shields. Any recent (2007 or later) req8 Hammer, Axe or Bow drop would be quite surprising tbh.

Yes there hasnt been single proof about em dropping since, but one reliable screenshot would change it all.. Im sure if it was possible more ppl would try get em and there would be some popping up

I agree, a screenshot showing a max r8 hammer dropped post-NF release would be an awesome find! Like most folks here, I was under the same impression - max r8 hammers no longer drop.

Please don't take offense, but until we get the screenshot proof I'm not planning on listing this as a claim in the OP. It's not personal at all! It's simply that I fear such a claim without supporting evidence would be far too controversial and/or far too misleading to people who don't read the fine print.

If it's any consolation, I'm rooting for you! Got my fingers crossed that you can show us proof ... I suspect Pleikki's right about the surge of interest that would create. Surges of interest are always interesting and usually fun, too!

Cheers!

A couple from yesterday. All from NM Proph and Factions ...

r5 12-17 inh. sword
r8 11-20 inh. wand
r5 +10 inh. focus

... updating the OP next.

EDIT - Dec. 15, 2010 - It seems I've hit a cap or glitch with guru attachments, so I'm editing all my posts here with photobucket-hosted versions of these pics instead

EDIT - Feb. 12, 2012 - fixing thumb links to direct instead of photobucket album

Blue R6 Crescent Staff dropped last night during one of the Halloween quests, but I think it's lower than what's already posted for the req.

Yeah, I think so, too. Your pic is r6 insc. 16/9/10-17, and we've found an r6 insc. 16/9/10-18 already. So I didn't list it. But staffs are tricky, with four values that might show new max. I'm fine with posting things one isn't sure about - better safe than sorry!

Placeholders are great, thanks! Given that most everything you show there appears to come from inscribable gear source areas, I assumed the white Ram's Hammer did, too. Please let us know if that one actually dropped somewhere in that produces inherent gear, not insc. (Proph or Factions.)

That r6 scythe is particularly nice, given that we already have an r6 scythe with a narrower damage range but min. damage of 10. It's good to get an example in there of a min. damage 9 one with a higher max.

Cheers folks!

some more baseline ones I guess just started a new char in factions so I should be getting a couple of the really low req ones the next day or so...taking it slow with him xD

Sorry if any of these are outdone.
