So i have the Arktech DLC, can i equip Castithan blades or are they locked to that DLC?
I assume they are until Batman says they're not ^^

Hahaha about Batman. But no, you can't use casti blades without casti dlc. Not to mention, I don't know how else you would get one..

You can get Castithan Charge Blade from the T4 lockbox (Elite), but the droprate is extremely low.

Extremely as I have not gotten a single one since starting this game.

Well I've gotten one of those.. but it brings up another question. I have all the dlc, but if I didn't have casti dlc, would I be able to use the charge blade dropped from the elite box? Or would it even drop? I had a girl cursing at me I zone because I was telling her that it says ON there that you can get one, and she was swearing up and down that it didn't. And she was supposedly looking at it.

Yes you can still get and use it. The only reason you can't get casti vendor blades is because rep (or the vendor itself I forget which) is locked. The reason it's locked is becuase people were going in all the time at the start of free to play and getting the rep for the sword by having another player take them in. Yes I was one of the people taking the new guys in but ONLY because people were charging 5,000- 10,000 scrip (about 30,000- 50,000 now with the recent inflation) to bring them in which I felt was pretty unfair to them.

It's the vendor that is locked, I went in and ran through some arenas (which I didn't even think was possible) and have some thorn liro rep, but I cannot even access the vendor, it's just a big box to me.

Also, about the charge blades, without the castithan charge dlc the only way you could get one is through the lockbox, and you can equip it (so I hear)

Blades can be obtained by casti charge pack (thorn liro arenas) 7th Legion, and Arktech Revolution.

But then you could get vendor rep from grouping with people doing arenas? While not having the dlc? Or am i wrong? But then again i was right but still waiting for Batman ^^

So no blades can be traded? Or can they be traded with fellow dlc owners?

On another note Tura i can b*tch and moan now about Cronkhite right? ^^

I was for awhile getting stuff i couldn't use from lock boxes, 7th legion, casti, volge, left and right. I sent a message to them about it and i havn't gotten any more for awhile now. Still get the stuff as event rewards from time to time though, but not often enough for me to worry about.

Incursions in SV still gives you 7L right?

The only tradeble blade is the Carving knife (very rare) and even if you have the dlc you can't trade swords excluding the previously mentioned one.

Yes they do and just so you don't get yelled at by the correct term nazis out there the invasions in silicon are named invasions.

Funny everyone says the drop rate for t4 is low, but I've gotten so many I've lost count. It's a pain because I just have to scrap them as I have both the Casti and 7th DLC and far better swords.

Agreed, I can't count how many Elite boxs I've bought and I've yet to see a single sword. I've even been told by players in zone chat 'don't get their hopes up' when I answer the ever popular 'where can I get a sword?' question with 'dlc or Elite lockboxes'

I saw someone in zone last night selling a "rare oj sword", I think they were asking well over 100k. I asked what sword is it and they said it was one of the casti swords. I had to inform them that it couldn't be sold or traded, only the carving knife could. There was 10 minutes of silence and then the same person started selling other weapons. They never mentioned the sword again :)

Changing the "non-tradeable" written sentence on weapon descriptions was the stupidest idea ever. It was clear as day. Its somehow easier to understand an unrecognizeable picture with a line through it that contains no reference point in the game?

I agree. It should be more obvious that an item is non tradeable. I've seen lots of people asking to buy a sword and the person I mentioned wasn't the first one I've seen trying to sell a sword that wasn't a carving knife. I've looked at a lot of my weapons and wondered what those little icons on top mean.
