Blackrazor +3

Does anybody else here feel that it's an under-appreciated weapon? Yes, it's not the FoA +5 or the Foebane, but it has some pretty nice effects. It makes a pretty good mainhand weapon for a dual-wielder with Belm in the offhand, and when that level-draining effect activates, it hurts an enemy pretty badly

I agree. Just finished TOB with a halfling swashbuckler, and used blackrazor often. It didn't help against ravager or melissan (immune to level drain) but worked well up through balthazar, and on melissan's elemental/demonic minions. With whirlwind that 15% chance is pretty good odds you'll drain and be hasted, 'strengthed', and healed. Fun item.

I wouldn't say underappreciated, whenever use of longswords comes up its usually one of the biggest reasons to use them...its just due to the fact that its an evil only weapon it won't get as much mention as weapons that can be used no matter what playthrough, such as CF/Crom/FoA.

It's not evil-only, you just have to make an evil choice in the trials

. . . and/or play a rogue and wait for TOB levels for UAI. Blackrazor is really a TOB weapon anyhow considering when you get it.

Making evil choices in the hell trials though sets your alignment to evil.

Yes, but there are no alignment requirements for using it. Meaning even Keldorn could use it (the thought of Keldorn dual-wielding the Purifier and Blackrazor is an amusing one)

Blackrazor is an evil sword, even if there are no-alignment restrictions. The demon and genie make it perfectly clear the sword is evil. The ring of Gaxx is similar. There are no alignment restrictions for the ring, but it is an evil ring. The description of the ring even talks about how it radiates pure evil.

I'm not trying to argue that it's not evil, just that a character doesn't have to be evil to use it. Unless you're either a Paladin, Ranger, or have taken a Good or Neutral cleric kit, your alignment really makes little difference in this game, so why restrict yourself from using evil to accomplish your goals? In most cases being evil doesn't have any consequences (unless you go on a killing spree through towns, but I'd argue that's less evil and more stupid)

Because some people like to roleplay instead of powergame.
