The carving knife is the only blade with a nano, however the chimera fang does the most damage. I'm not sure what the plague blade but it is hard to order them.

Ok,thank you.:D Also,what if I equip the perk that increases bio damage(I think that it's called virulent) while wielding a Carving Knife?Does it's damage surpass the Fang?

PS:I think the Plague Blade as a nano too but I'm not sure.We need a Plague Blade owner to confirm that.

Plague blade has bio and comes from the PAX thing.

Okay the plague blade has a nano (PAX?) and if you equip the perk to up the bio damage it will still not surpass it in damage.

Plague blade has bio and comes from the PAX thing.Also, I believe it's untradeable. So, unless you have one of the very few codes granting access to it, it isn't worth listing.

Ok,thanks.But why is Trion so clingy about the blades?Non-tradable,auto-encrypted,mods bit-store only...They are just swords that could use more work into and they're not that great.

Whenever you have a sword in a shooter everyone wants it so this is a way to make a little more money.

There isn't a perk in increase bio dmg but Virulent can increase how much you deal to armor plates. So the Fang can still deal more dmg once the plates are down.

Because, originally, blades were DLC explicit. Hence the non-trade issue. No idea on the auto-encryption. Trion does "funny" things all the time that make us question. Longer, more fulfilling chase? Because 'nades.

If Trion wanted more money they wouldn't have introduced free 2 play.Plus,why don't they use their money to get good servers?I don't have Time outs with other MMO's like DC Universe.

Carving Knife is tradable.

Carving Knife is tradable.

But it is a very rare item which helps keep it away from most people.

The game wasn't making money because people weren't buying it so if you make it free and people buy the DLC's it will make more money.

PS:How much is an EGO 1500 Carving Knife worth?
1) Carving Knife
2) Plague Blade
3) Shanjifyo Blade
4) Chimera Fang
5) Castithan Charge Blade
6) Valafyo Blade

The Carving Knife and Primary Function take the 1 and 2 spots simply because they break Armor Plates and that's a natural enemy for a Charge Blade with no nano. They have lower damage maximums due to the 10% damage cut of the Bio nano but once the enemy has at least 1 Armor Plate, so does a no nano blade. The Shanjifyo Blade, Chimera Fang, and Castithan Charge Blade all have the same damage "potential". Taking other factors into consideration, the Shanjifyo Blade takes 3rd because you can walk up to the vendor at 5900 and buy a maxed out EGO version if you own the DLC/rep. While the Chimera Fang has potential to match the stats of a Shanjifyo Blade, it's a reward from a pursuit that most players complete on the way to 5900, not before. You'd have to do a lot of EGO manipulation to get one at an even 100 EGO marker, so this takes 4th. The Castithan Charge Blade has a higher damage potential than the Valafyo Blade simple because it can be Legendary. The problem with it is the ranging ease to difficulty that a player would encounter when attempting to obtain one. This can range from as soon as your first Elite Lock Box or never in your career, 5th. The Valafyo Blade is Epic and will stay Epic, so it places last.

A Carving Knife is worth all of the money that exists and ever will exist due to the fact that it no longer drops, can be traded, and does not require a DLC to use. You could ask for any item(s) in return and the right person will answer. At the same time, it is devalued due to the fact that every Charge Blade is less effective than using a gun and certain enemies will smash your face in for being in melee range. Until it can give its wielder perks for equipping it (Armor Plates, Health, Innate Run Speed Increase), it will simply play a limited role in a Threat Level 10 environment.

Bringing in the Carving knife with same nano and better dmg #'s makes the plague blade inferior. Hence, devalued.

Exactly what SirServed said. Now I know not a charge blade but I would insert the 7th Legion Amakuni blade between 3 and 4 because of the Unity Synergy. Imagine the Recharge delay of a Rebel or Respark shield with an Amakuni and another Unity gun. And the perk crafting with "on shield break" or "on shield restore."
