Short version: With the 2h Piercing update, Shamans and Bards are no longer able to use the Goranga Spear. http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=8279 Long version: I'm aware of how pointless this is to complain about, but I'm gonna do it anyway. Goranga Spear came out with Shadows of Luclin about 12 years ago. It was one of those rare items that ignored standard class skills and allowed Shamans and Bards to use it. Read the item comments above. Most of the people talking about it are shamans and bards. There are other weapons that Shamans aren't supposed to be able to use, such as Overseer's Lasher (1hSlash) and Pestilence Scythe (2hSlash) and many more. Based on skills, shamans aren't 'eligible' to use the weapons but for some reason the developers let us use them. They are hardly overpowered, and are just neat little tricks that every class in Everquest enjoys finding. With the lastest patch, 2h Pierce is now its own skill. Goranga Spear has been changed so that bards and shamans can't equip it, because they aren't 'eligible' classes for the skill. I can understand changing some more recent weapons to prevent overpowering, but changing old items from SoL 12 years ago? I've been using the Goranga Spear for most of these 12 years, and recently enjoyed putting cool 2h Pierce only weapon molds/ornaments on it. To prepare for the new SoF addition to the game, I set up a cool shadow costume for my character with the new armor looks, complete with a cool Void ornament on my Goranga Spear. I was using it the night of the patch! Then I log on the next day and its in my inventory, unable to be equipped. I can understand the update to 2h Pierce. But there was no reason to go back and change such a useless low level item. I'm sure some developer was just going through all the items, making the changes and assuming no one would even care that a 12 year old item is losing a few usable classes. Well, this one player cares! I had my cool shadow costume all ready for the new update. I had been using the cool Void staff, even though my shaman is 92 and the weapon is weak. I'm from FV, where some still try to keep the tradition of roleplay alive. The GMs have been giving me the "shamans aren't eligible" excuse, but what about all the other items I can use that I dont have a skill for? I say change Goranga Spear back to the way it was, or change the many other items that shamans shouldn't be able to use. If all the other items get nerfed, there will be a lot more than just me complaining about it.
