Stephen Weber's Shaft of the Dragon is a Legendary, one-handed weapon that the player receives for successfully completing Vice Awakens, the third quest of the Vice quest line. This quest line begins with the Free Yourself of the Dragon's Influence quest, awarded to all players when they reach level 30.
Its bonuses are most clear for Warriors (whose primary attribute is Strength) and Rogues (whose primary attribute is Perception), but it can have benefits for Mages and Healers as well, even though it doesn't buff their primary stats. It can help any player deal more task-based damage to bosses, achieve more critical hits, earn more gold, and receive more drops. The addition of 25 Perception points to a player's total Perception is enough to increase the player's drop cap by 1.
You can only ever have one copy of Stephen Weber's Shaft of the Dragon at a time; subsequent completions of the quest do not give you additional copies.
However, if you lose Stephen Weber's Shaft of the Dragon by death, you can get it back by either:
- buying it with gold in the Rewards section, as for any equipment lost through death (Stephen Weber's Shaft of the Dragon costs 200 gold points), or
- repeating the quest, which, on completion, will put a new copy of Stephen Weber's Shaft of the Dragon back in your inventory. The option to buy the equipment will then be removed from the Rewards section.
