Effect: Dance of the Blade (Combat, Casting Time: Instant) at Level 46
WT: 2.0 Size: MEDIUM
The effect (Dance of the Blade) is a full party buff that adds 55% haste, 30 Strength, and 30 attack. It lasts for 2 minutes 30 seconds and has a range of about 150 feet. The 1.8 all-instrument (including singing) modification will only apply if the weapon is equipped in the primary item slot  until October 2001 in the timeline:
Finally, the Singing Shortsword can now be equipped in the off hand and still give full song enhancing benefits.
The above statement is not yet true since the October 2001 patch was split into two patches on p99 and this was not included in the first oct 2001 patch. The epic still does NOT register as an instrument in offhand and will not until the second half of the p99 oct 2001 patch is implemented.
