3-4 T3 boxes, no blades. Several charged weapon however.
No volge LMG either, it's kinda sad to introduce a gun and make it green only.

Oh, don't get discouraged....get DETERMINED. Or whatever....I got nothing really. I have also opened many a tier 4, blew a bunch of saved ark salvage and a fair amount scrip (and no, I didn't get any on me...chuckle) and yet to see one. I'm sure I see one before too long. Or wait till enough of us complain that TRION ups the drop percentage for said charge blades.....snicker.

I've opened 5 T4's and no blade. Charge weapons are pretty plentiful though - 2 blue pistols, 2 blue snipers, and a green shotty.

I got a purple castithan charge blade out of a tier 4 box. It has better stats than the orange one from the faction vendor.

My friend did and he said is stinks. The way I feel is all these weapons are pretty much the same it's just a matter of how you play and how you mod. Another friend ran some missions with US, He's a level 60 and we're all over 3500. He could keep up with Us using all his very low white weapons and shield. I had all Orange but I happen to like Purple. Shields delay no more then 3 seconds.

Well that is pretty much how they designed the weapon system in this game. How well you do is much more about your skills than it is about what gear you have equipped.

Seems like the chance is really low but I think the faction blades should be better. I don't know how long it takes to get one but I assume it's a while.

They're not better (see my earlier post). But to get one from the faction vendor won't take much time at all because you can get rep rather fast, plus there's no cap on how much you can get per day unlike the other factions. I had like 500 rep points just from doing the initial arena missions on the first day.

Do all Charge Blades have the "Cannot be Traded" stamp?

Charge blades, regardless of where they come from, can't be traded. On another note, I got a blue CB out of a t3 lockbox on drop day for the DLC. I've also gotten a bunch of charge weapons (blue/green), so they are dropping. Not good drops, but the weapons are dropping.

I got the purple one from the vendor after golding all the arenas, is the purple lockbox one better??

Bought around 40 T4s now...nothing interesting...mostly greens as per usual. Now I have no SC but I do have 6 mill ark salvage...maybe I should build a space ship with it!

Anyways, I do have the rep orange blade but it's disappointing to know a purple one from a box is better...huh.

As a side note; these blades might look cool and fun to use but I find it's better just to use a gun instead at least for PvE since you get all those lovely extra stats + synergies + MUCH higher DPS + no need to go up and personal with mobs that love to chain stagger, KD, and or 1-2 shot me.

These weapons really need bonuses on them! Ego refresh on kill, stowed weapon reload, etc etc...why can't they have stuff like that? Lame!

Blades atm feel like a poor choice as a companion weapon over all.

@DeadMike

Yeah, I'd say so. They noted that T4's have had the new charge weapons & blades added to them. So either roll the dice on T4 boxes, or get a guaranteed charge blade from the faction vendor by going through all of the arenas and getting those missions done.

Just in case you have not already done so, make sure to load some of your melee perks when using the CB.

I wasn't able to stay connected long enough to really do anything w/ dlc, but my son was, and after he loaded up some of the melee perks, he was decimating with his blade.

Only slightly. (VERY slightly) Check the pic I posted earlier in this topic.

The "light" damage is 8 higher (808 vs 800)
The "jump" damage is 15 higher (1515 vs 1500)
And for some reason it highlighted the "charge" damage on my purple as if it was higher, even though the damage for that stat is 129 higher on the orange vendor blade (2121 vs 2250)

DeadMike
08-22-2013, 10:06 AM
I've found a pretty awesome combination is a charge blade and a low refresh time flash grenade.

Stun 'nade > hack stunned enemies to pieces > rinse & repeat

Even better if you have the +X% damage from behind perk because it's easy to get behind stunned enemies.

Yeah, the difference between any of the charge blades in the game (lockbox or vendor, all rarities) isn't going to make any kind of significant difference in damage output really. The only real difference is that some have to slot for a blade color mod and some don't.

Although I have no idea if you can open that slot on the ones that don't have it from the start, like you can with the guns. Maybe you can?

I wasn't able to stay connected long enough to really do anything w/ dlc, but my son was, and after he loaded up some of the melee perks, he was decimating with his blade.

Did that already, still fails to impress. Might work on humanoid NPCs pretty well but fighting anything else is pretty terrible. Also if it's elite like a volge, it's a great way to get killed...you can't run/jump and swing so once you attack; you have to wait for the animation to end before you can move again...is it better with a controller? Kinda sucks with a mouse and KB imo.

Anyways, why use this blade where you have to perk melee ego to make it passable when you can use a gun and get 4x extra stats (ie crit/ego refresh on kill/etc) + a synergy + use better ego perks? Also 800 per swing vs a gun that can crit weak spots from range...the CB dmg is laughable in comparison even perked out. Plus many perks don't seem to even work with it like Intimidation where I am obviously flinching enemies but there is zero extra dps. Meh.

Might be a pvp weapon I guess.

nice man. just hit 1000 rep myself so will be grabbing the rep sword soon as i find another 350k scrip. do you know if its possible to retrieve the charge blade mods without destroying the sword? hard to choose between destroying a paid for mod with money or a grindfest sword lol. wonder why the green mod is more expensive too.

I got one too... It might be the first on ps3... It's great for squishies... I pulled it on my first tier 4 at last chance just before the restart Tuesday night... They are not trade-able. Also probly just a coincidence, but the store has mods for it for bits... I still don't have dlc but I can spend bits on coloring my blade... I really want it to be green... damn!im on after 7 tonight... X11ELEVEN11X PS3 NA. The blade is melee and I'm tweaking the perks... It seems useable...

Green is better, red is worse, white the same. The image makes no sense as do most weapon stats lol Charge and jump are wrong incase you cant see what i mean.

Anybody/character can use a chargeblade, and you can get them in a lockbox without the paid Dlc.

CBs can ONLY BE PULLED FROM T4s!!! Or purchased from the Thorn Liro rep vendor if you purchased the dlc/season pass. Read the patch notes people, they're there for a reason. All other charge weapons can be dropped by mobs(white/green/blue)(W/G/B/P from gold skits in arenas) or pulled from any random lockbox.
