I was looking around the atari forums, and found this (QUOTE) Here's the skinny on Rod of the Python. It doesn't turn into a snake, but it does count as a 2handed weapon that you can wield in 1 hand. This means that it get 1.5x strength bonus, double damage from power attack, etc. It also counts as a quarterstaff, which is a monk weapon, and can therefore be used with flurry of blows. It can also be further enchanted to +3 holy, axiomatic, frost, and flame with keen edge castable on it. Picture a half-orc 28 strength monk duel-wielding these with two-weapon, improved two weapon, and flurry of blows. Damage output: +13 damage from strength, +16 damage from power attack, +1d6+3 from weapon, +2d6 holy, +2d6 law, +1d6 fire, +1d6 cold, +1 from prayer, +2 from good hope, 6 times a round with haste (at a 19-20 crit range). To top it all off, monks get improved trip, so all those attacks can be made as trip attacks which ignore armor - eg. almost always hit unless you roll a '1'. When you make the free attack that comes with the trip, it is always made at full bonus (without power attack penalty), which means again that you're only going to miss on a '1'. It is also made with your primary hand (1.5x strength) regardless of which hand was used to make the trip in the first place. Monks with rods of the python are juggernauts of destruction, much more than warriors with fragerach on full power attack. (UNQUOTE) Sounds cool to me! How would I go about making such a character, or is it still possible with the fixes introduced by Co8?
