This is a terrible knife.

Okay, so I leveled THF from 1 to 15 tonight for farming purposes, and I decided I'd bring in my Aspir Knife I got a loooong time ago to try it out. Well, I wish I didn't, because it's HORRIBLE. Crappy DMG, longer delay than Brass Knife, and the MP Absorption hardly works anyway. I dropped it because it's was completely useless to me.

I don't recommend this knife to anyone really, but you're welcome to give it a shot yourself.

The knife
# May 06 2006 at 4:16 PM Rating: Decent
Yeah, I've had bad luck with this weapon, too. I've been using it as a 12THF/WHM to help keep HP up and give me a bit more MP, but with my luck, it keeps activating on mobs that don't have MP, and doesn't do anything to mobs that actually do have MP, and on the off-chance it actually does activate on an enemy with MP... I have full MP anyway. Arrgh!

It might be useful if you have this as well as, say, the blind dagger. At least that way you can still blind enemies that don't have MP anyway.

The Aspir effect rarely goes off. It's just not worth it. It's a mission item and should be left as one -- don't waste your time. I imagine the Lilith's Rod effect goes off so often because it's a LV50 club. If the Aspir Knife's effect happened more than once in a blue moon, it would be well worth the slot it takes up...
Well here...

As explained previously, Aspir Knife does in fact drain MP from mobs but the mob has to ~have~ MP to drain it. Kinda like how you can cast the actual spell, Aspir, on a mob that has no mp. The spell can still be casted, just you don't get MP for it. Here's an awesome piccie I took (c'mon, I think I did a good job) capturing how the actual Aspir drain effect looks. If you view it, you'll see that the effect still appeared even though the mob that was being fought had no mp. Here's the link: http://www.geocities.com/teragurl2003/aspirknifepic.jpg

people keep saying it would be great for a low level rdm, i agree, but IT CAN'T BE EQUIPED BY A RDM, unless rdm is the subjob to something else.

I could see this being useful for a BRD/WHM fighting crabs in Valkurm. Short of that, I can't see any real use.
Yay for Jhereg!
MP Effect

I can confirm that this knife does give the weilder the mp that it drains from mobs that have mp. I was harvesting in Giddeus as a 23rd Dragoon/Red Mage, and saw Mr Ironbreaker. Killed him, then used up all but 20 of my MP. Went around killing worms and caster yagudo until the effect went off: Villanova drains 7 MP from the Earth Eater! and my MP wen from 20 to 27.

So to all of you that say it doesn't work, you're either wrong, or it was bugged when you tried it and they fixed it.

It isn't that great of a weapon (seeing as how the mage classes can't use it). It is an automatic drop, and is part of the Bastok Mission 2-3 (if you go to Windy first, and then Sandy) .

just an idea... DRK/NIN might have some fun with aspir knives.
Mp drain
# Mar 05 2005 at 2:01 AM Rating: Decent
The only thing I did notice (because I sub WHM when I solo) is that when it does take the MP I dont get it. Where does it go? Time for more research I think.

You can ONLY drain MP from mobs that have it in the first place e.g Crabs, Beetles, Elementals and Beastmen Paladin/Red Mage/White Mage/Summoner/Dark Knight.

Hope this helps =D

yes and no... some mobs without MP can be aspired as well (Crabs, Beetle, Sand Cockatrice in teriggan.... ... ...)
RE: Mp drain
# Sep 02 2005 at 12:51 PM Rating: Decent
{um...} crabs and beetles can be aspired cause the HAVE MP, after all they are PLD class... so that should mean that only mobs with MP can be aspired ^^"

BLM should be able to equip this...

I understand what you mean, but BLM can't equip any knives or kukris. Only daggers, baselards, and kris'.

I have 2 of the knoves and I can say that it does not drop EVERY time, but it is a really common drop. After reading the posts I'll prob dump mine, cuz I was under the belief that 1.) was for a quest in Bastok, and 2.) thought the MP drained was given to you.... How disappointing. Sooo, seeing as I"m from Sandy and Rank 4, I really have no use for it. Sux, cuz it could have lower lvl potential...

i was leveling my thf in giddeous when i found this pseudo NM completely alone, so i decided to chain to my main rdm and come to kill it, after feeling completely frustrated of spini spipi being overcamped, when i get back, its still there (or already respawned) so i kill it quick and get the knife on first trial! ^_^U i am wondering, do any of u know how much does it sell for?

I would assume mp drain means you can only drain mp from mobs that cast spells, meaning they have mp to drain.

I used this knife last night. It did the MP drain effect only four times in three hours; once when I did a weapon skill, the rest of the time at random. I think 8 MP was the maximum drained; it drained 0 one time too.

Does anyone know what, if anything, triggers the Aspir effect?

And it's a total crime that RDMs can't use this weapon, but they can use other knives and daggers. S-E should change this.

I agree it's a shame RDM can't use it, but it's not surprising. RDM can't use any knife, only daggers.

I'll probably hang onto it for when I do NIN.

i was thinkin about soloing my BRD some and using it is my knife

BRD/WHM and using that knife to support my already low MP =\ well as low as a taru gets :P
# Oct 07 2004 at 10:37 AM Rating: Decent
ha.. i just got one , while hunting for my gid. key

i seriously dun find it any useful , or worth keeping unless u planing to sub with rdm/blm/whm at low level...

nothing too special about it...wanted to give away but i guess it is ex...oh well

# Aug 31 2004 at 5:20 PM Rating: Default
My only use for this thing would be draining MP from BLack Mage mobs that cast Ancient magic or something like in BCNM when you have to Aspir the monster lots so he has no mp to cast sleepga and so on.

I have had this Dagger for about two weeks. I love it and use it every chance I get as I solo both my thief and warrior jobs.

It may not do as much damage as my sapara right off the bat but it is great for my soloing. (Note: it may not be great for yours but I don't play reckless).

The only thing I did notice (because I sub WHM when I solo) is that when it does take the MP I dont get it. Where does it go? Time for more research I think.
RE: Aspir Dagger
# Sep 27 2004 at 1:12 AM Rating: Decent
It drains the mobs mp it doesn't give you mp. Cause if it did it would be more likely to see this weapon useable by rdm's and blm's.

That seems a bit odd, all weapons with the HP Drain effect give you hp.... if it didn't drain it, then it would probably say that it damages the mp... I wouldn't really know though, the only time I used this for was with my brd in the dunes and there's not a whole lot of fighting time for brds and everytime the effect went off, I somehow managed to ahve full mp or the mob didn't have any...
Quest item???
# Aug 15 2004 at 12:32 PM Rating: Decent
I was told by some that this knife is for a quest.
can anyone shed some light on both this and for the shild?
I have both and both seem absolutely useless to me.

They are used for a mission, not a quest. If you are from Bastok or San d'Oria and are doing mission 2-3, you have to visit both of the other two main cities and prove your mettle there. Whichever city you decide to visit second, you fight the dragon of that area. If you decide to visit Windurst first, then you have to go to Giddeus and defeat the named monsters who drop the aspir knife and parana shield.

If you are from Windurst to begin with, or visit Windurst second while on this mission from Bastok or San d'Oria, the items are utterly useless, except for regular weapon/armor use.

Ex items can be sold to NPCs, which is what I believe he was talking about. It doesn't sell for enough to make it worth camping, though.
