Well, I'm currently a lvl 47 DRK Elvaan... I am not rich however so I do not have snipers or luisant or anything worth more then maybe 100k >.>

Once I hit 50, I will have Life Belt, ACC+10, Royal Knights Mufflers, ACC+3, another ACC+3 ring, and about +5DEX... Should I use this scythe or will I simply miss every hit?
no joke

ok i've heard alot of ppl bashing this scythe because the -5 accuracy. well i'm here to tell you that unless your elvann this is the best sycthe to use till u hit lvl59 and get a vassago's. seriously the +25 attack teamed up with alot of str gear, and squid sushi will have u doing more damage than anyone else in your pt. don't bother with a demonslicer either, its garbage in comparison to the regular attack damage u will do with this weapon. your weapon skills might not be all that great but keep your dark magic capped and absorb spells can make up for the lack of dex, str ect.
no joke

um squid? you give drk a bad name. Sole only tard.

My DRK is 48 with about 2K tnl

My DRK is Elvaan (Nuff Said)
My accuracy is +22
My DEX is +8
I eat Sole sushi which gives 15% Acc

I still miss 40-50% of the time with Scythe, Skill 127
I miss roughly 10-30% with my GReat Sword, Skill 120

So I dunno if I want the Barb Scythe, but the added damage might just be worth it.

Hehehe I definitly reccomend this weapon, I have had it since 49 and now I am 55 and still using it. My accuracy is crazy now, and yes my scythe is higher but I am a few points from capping it. Problem is I level to fast so my skillz never catch up.

lol, @ level 48 your scythe skill is supposed to be 147 capped, GS 147 as well... Seriously underlevelled, can't believe you haven't noticed this before =/

I am a level 43 DRK. At 49 my accuracy will be with Life Belt, Snipers ring x1, Luisant moufles, and Luisant Solerets, for a total of ACC +13. This and about 15 DEX with Sole sushi on. Do you think i will miss a lot with this?
Thanks for your advice
That's me :)
# Jun 22 2006 at 2:18 AM Rating: Decent
Thats me hehe j/k :) that will be me in afew lvls Drk Taru FTW :)

Well yeah for a Taru like me, it shouldn't be a big loss in ACC (Life Belt + Verner w00t) so I'm itching to use this scythe, Peace.

i'm a 51 DRK and ive been useing Antilion Sickle since lvl 46. I've been tempted to use barbarian scythe, seeing i have life belt and other acc+ gear, that i shouldnt miss any less than i was. The most i've done with antilion sickle is 785 dmg on a Gobbie Tinker with Vorpal Scythe, Last Resort, Beserk, and Souleater, and from watching other darks, i should be doing atleast a lil more dmg than that at my level especially on too weak and easy. Ill post another one when i get it and do a lil experimentation... and possibly some tarus in Ballista >.>;
worth it

At first the 5 acc lost seems to make this weapon not worth it. But at that lvl i will have a life belt and snipers giving me 20 acc so i end up netting 15 acc and 25 att. definitely gonna pick it up for the 30k it goes for on pandy when i get my drk up to that lvl.
Pretty good weapon

I use this weapon, its decent but you really will miss an IT mob a lot unless you use sole or squid sushi. Kinda got ninja tank a bit angry though when my ws pulled hate for the rest of the battle from about 1/3 of its hp remaining
# Mar 18 2005 at 7:04 AM Rating: Decent
This scythe is awesome!

If you're having trouble hitting with it..
try eating sole sushi it helps ALOT.

Only bad thing about this scythe.. Is you will pull alot of hate with It If you arent careful.

Anyone thinking of passing on this scythe has to be crazy.. atleast try it out u wont regret it.

# Mar 03 2005 at 7:58 PM Rating: Decent
the aiming bracers lev51 go with this scythe perfectly! with the combo you come out with +1 acc and +7 attack
RE: combo package
# Nov 30 2005 at 12:32 PM Rating: Decent
not worth it since accuracy is an issue that can be easily resolved. snipers woodsman, sushi..etc

I would have to dissagree because of the base dmg of the scythe is a lot higher than anything else around its lvl. On top of that the attack will help make yout attacks be more consistent. I mean what else could you use for around this lvl +3 acc hands? Your AF? Naw this is a good combo until your bone/bone+1 scythe. +1 acc is small very small but if you use snipers woods and sushi with capped scythe you should be attacking for at least 70% and with a very good damaging scythe too.
not that bad
# Feb 16 2005 at 6:52 PM Rating: Decent
just running with a lot of dex and I do not miss that often, I think the weapon is definitely a plus
Use this until 58.
# Feb 07 2005 at 2:46 PM Rating: Decent
This scythe is THE scythe to use for any DRK from 49 until 58. I have +7 Acc *factoring in the -5 acc from the scythe* and +10 Dex and I hit IT mobs around 85% of the time. I've never had ANY trouble keeping up in the TP department and I really don't have that much of an Acc and Dex boost. The only drawback I can think of is that you have to hold back using Last Resort and Soul Eater because it's so easy to pull hate with this beast equipped. I've outdamaged most rangers I've partied with, with this weapon. ^^

Hmmm. i think you never pleyed with a good DRK.
I outdamaged the last 5 Rangers i was playing with.
Crawlers Nest:
I: 70-120DMG on IT Flys or Beetles (att food+Berserk)
Ranger: 50-80

I never played with a Ranger who did more damaged at ONE hit as me. (a normal hit)
And dont misunderstand me. RNG realy are better, but not that much better IMO.

IMO is the Raven Scythe extremly overrated.
At Level 40 u get the Multilator. A bit quicker attack and +3 acc
At Level 47 u get Falcastra. Same Damage +a lot faster+ DEX Bonus!

The ONLY way that you could even come close to being able to out damage a ranger is if the ranger has the worst equip but you have to remember that rangers attack a lot faster than drks especially with the delay on this weapon.

It is hard for a drk to out damage a ranger if both of them have decent equip. Unless the ranger is still using wooden arrows or using a throwing weapon at lvl 50.

I was able to keep up with damage with the BLM in Crawler's Nest on Rumbles at 49 I believe it was with this weapon. The party was having fun because we beat those things easy. BLM told me to hit it as hard as I could so I stacked Souleater, Last Resort, and Sneak Attack with Slice. Hit the Rumble Crawler for up to 800+ damage. I'm glad the weaponskill and magic burst finished off the mob or I would have been dead. ><;; A good DRK can outdamage anything but I have seem some pretty bad ones around.

*Edit* Hit a wrong key.

In my CN parties around 35 as DRK/NIN (hume), my gf was RNG/NIN(mithra) with really good equips (a lot of them mine[RNG59, kept for BCNM]), and I managed to outdamage everyone by far with weapon skills, close to 400 damage on IT++ vs around 120 on IT++ by my gf. Fun fights, I definitely must admit, though, that /NIN saved my life more often than not lol. So, whoever thinks a DRK can't outdamage a RNG, even with DoT, is mistaken if the DRK is good and goes for damage above most else. Even my normal hits on the mobs, when I connected (fairly often), was between 20-40 each hit with dual axes. With a scythe, I believe DRKs can do more damage per hit, but personally, I prefer 2 axes and about the same damage per turn with more attack turns. Just my 2 cents and some experience.
bar scythe
# Dec 29 2004 at 3:14 AM Rating: Decent
this is a good scythe, just got to compensate for the -5 acc and I kept this scythe till 58. i had lot of dex to compensate at the time till i was able to afford th snip ring's <overated> with a drk/war sub till lvl 58 <new scythe> this is a vry deadly scythe.

is the drop rate on this hight it only cost 10-15k in or does the -5 acc just make it so cheap. am 48 right now getting mine next time am in jeuno, was out of them last time i was there. i have +15 acc +14dex hope this is enouth.
awesome weapon
# Dec 10 2004 at 12:39 PM Rating: Decent
I have +19 accuracy with this scthe equipped including the -5 and it gives me +52 attack. This scthye rocks with a lot of accuracy i wouldnt let this scthye go for anything. If I end up getting haubergeon i MIGHT stick with this and forget about vassagos scthye. I do crazy damage with this tho, i
am in the 80s to 110 on a regular hit(with beserk) If you have excellent accuracy this weapon rules all. With beserk last resort and food on i get my attack up too 515, not that you would want to do that lol. Oh btw i was doing this damage at 56 to crabs in cape terrigan

I plan on using this in conjunction with the Raven Scythe. Raven scythe for mobs with high evasion, Barbarian's scythe for mobs that pose no problems with accuracy. I'll have 2x sniper's and a lifebelt, of course
i use it
# Sep 04 2004 at 8:20 PM Rating: Decent
i use it, its works for me, then agian i have a total of +17 acc(including my +8 dex)...i miss no more with this than any other scythe so far, so if you got the +acc/dex, go for it, if not, avoid it and stick with Mr. Raven Scythe till bone.

If you dont have Snippers ring or Life belt, never think about using this ******** Scythe..

I don't know what the last poster is talking about but the lvl 53 Bone Scythe is also a Dark Class Scythe not a lousy Zhagnal.
Countering the -5 ACC
# Mar 25 2004 at 8:25 PM Rating: Default

If you can counter the -5 ACC i suggest you do it by finding +DEX gear instead of +acc gear or use a combination of both. That way you have a better chance in the dex vs agi and acc vs eva checks and the added dex ups your chance to have criticals which the acc boosts dont.
RE: Countering the -5 ACC
# Dec 10 2004 at 12:53 PM Rating: Decent
no you dont use +dex rings you use +accuracy rings and use absorb dex with souleater to get the hard hitting criticals.

Yup, but you have to fetch 10 dex to get the same accuracy boost as +5 accuracy. I would go with +acc personally.

# Feb 24 2004 at 12:03 PM Rating: Default
Any half decent DRK need to pick this up at 49. Yes, it has -5 Acc, but +25 Att make a very noticable difference. Use another piece of equipment to compensate for the acc loss.

Some might be tempted be bone scythe at 53. Don't! Keep this until you get your hands on vassago's scythe at 58.

Bone scythe is a reaper class scythe. Returns 12 TP per hit instead of 12.5% from the Dark class scythe (which this is). This translate into, dark class sycthe needs 1 less hit before having enough TP to do a WS. It might not sound like much, but it matters.

My experience is that drk that use this lag behind greatly in the ammount of tp they get. Drk already have horrible accuracy, and half of them have str rings and other silly gear on. I would say this weapon is bad, and should be avoided.

Last drk i was pted with that had this missed more weapon skills than i did. I'm a rng. No excuse to have this past lvl 53 (bone scyth), and limited excuse to have this before then.
RE: Get this!
# Dec 10 2004 at 12:49 PM Rating: Decent
This is not a bad scythe you just need a lot of accuracy. All my weapon skills hit all the time.
RE: Get this!
# Dec 10 2004 at 12:56 PM Rating: Decent
And there is a ton of excuse to have this weapon.
RE: Get this!
# Aug 14 2004 at 4:18 PM Rating: Decent
um if someone is using str rings ect and cant hit maybe you shouldnt party them. you cant say that just because one person is bad with it everyone has to be. once i hit 49 i will definatly use it. lifebelt/sniper rings or dex rings always helps it shouldnt be that bigof a deal if they know what they're doing
RE: Get this!
# Jul 06 2007 at 4:43 PM Rating: Decent
I'm a mithra Drk 60 and I use this scythe but I have to tell you, this scythe is just good if you have haubergeon, venerer ring, life belt and the +3 acc glove xD if you dont have this, the vassago is a lot better...
