I am doing this quest just to get this so I have a means of teleporting to PoK and, well, it's there, lol. I have been stuck with getting the piece from the PoA so I figure since after turning lv 80 I could kill those castellans no problem. Was I ever wrong! I did kill them easily up until I got to the next to last mob before the tunnel when a named popped. I managed to barely kill him and the green mob together until after having killed the named and then the green castellan another named boss-like mob appeared and kicked my a@#. So now what? Wait until next year when we can go to lv 85??? There is no chance I will see this thing. I just was hoping I could make some bank space since it is filled with clickies and no drop keys from just about everywhere. I wish they would give us more bank space. Bottom line though is why not make getting the PoA piece on par with the other ones in PoF and PoE? It makes no sense to me since I really had my hopes up getting to that stupid tunnel in PoA.

I and others duo'd this at 70, so you hardly have to wait until lvl 85. The key is patience - lots and lots of patience. There are two mephits that path down to the entrance - you can kill those repeatedly until you get lucky.

I myself ended up having to kill 44 of those things... over the course of a couple weeks.

Air is a mean zone, but I did get my drop after just a few mephit kills. The zone is made easier by the fact 90% of the mobs are humanoids and I can therefore headshot them. Without that, my suggestion would be to get selos/fast horse and run fast into the tunnel and as deep in as possible (before reaching mobs the other end). The pathing is screwy and they're likely to lose you by the time you get there.

This used to be worth the effort... and in many ways, it still is. But with OoW and the new Origin AA... you can gate, reagent free, once every 72 minutes. Granted, it may make life more difficult since it ports you to your home city, and if you're KoS... well.. it ports me to my guildmaster in Kelethin. heh.

I still switch out my necklace for EB item so putting EB on this would be a nice augment. Just a suggestion.

*EDITED* ok, ignore my suggestion on the augment considering that with OoW expansion which is due out in about 2 weeks, you will be able to get an AA that makes it so you will never need another EB item again. (Lets hope they don't change it.)

yes it's that item ... that Tilar said

it's purpose is to raise pet lvl by 1 (i.e. ur 61+ pets innate lvl is 60 -> will now be 61)

It adds a 5% per tick regen to pet (on mage 7.9khp pet).
Raises dmg of pet by approxamately 2.

Also, even if you could equipment the summoner's boon augument in the neck slot, it would be sort of a waste to do so - since you can just swap a cheap item (with slot 3) in when casting your pet.

actually, putting the LDoN summoner's boon into this item (if it was possible), would be great if this was an item you carry around in your inventory.

With the Omens aug, it might be possible to add the pet focus to an item... and since it's a 'swap out' item... anything you already normally carry around is perfect!

If this is true, then couldn't someone (say a non-Bard) just buy an instrument and carry it around with them when they use this to Gate back to PoK? I've never played a Bard so I don't know how an instrument could be a "regent".

There are songs that require an instrument to be equiped to play. In Lucy's it says something like "requires regent: flute." Invis song doesn't actually consume the flute everytime you pulse invis or a bard would need a stack of them for every few minutes of invis. Evidenly the bug had something to do with special bard coding as opposed to song vs spell coding. So as long as a bard had the required regent on him, it didn't get consumed. It's fixed now. My bard uses a quintessence of knowledge everytime he uses this.

A patch that came out just before GoD's release changed the sell back price of ALL tradeskill made items. This was due to the abuse of Jewl Crafted items made for LESS than what they sold back to vendors for. A 10 dose gate potion now sells back to a vendor for 9pp.

IMO. I say just go to Bazaar and pick up a 10gate potion. use 9 charges and sell the last one back to vendor. seems to come out to about the same per port as the reagents you buy for this item and u dont have to carry extra items, get combines done for you, or complete this irritating quest.

This item cant be augmented although it is a nice neck item for non elemental, but u have to be elemental to get it. so why carry it and the reagent around when u can just grab a 10gate potion easy, with half the cast time in case of emergencies.

With Bidden Concertia you can essentially have two bind points tho, binding near a dungeon and using this to gate to pok for buffs/whatever else one might need (for those of us fortunate enough to bind ourselves or get their hands on a locket of escape that is).

when i first saw this, i was really excited about the gate, but... the reagents make it less worth it. the thurg gate potion may be lore, but the components are not. i keep a stack of small pieces of velium in the bank, as well as several velium vials, so whenever i gate to thurg, i just get a new velium purifier, hit the bank quick and make another potion on my way out. any race can make it, so it too is a viable gate source for non casters - cast time is half of this one - and you can easily farm the components in crystal caverns and pay almost nothing for these. Having said that, a gate to pok is a bit more convenient than thurg, and the thurg gate potion doesn't give you any stats - /shrugg i'll probably still go after this item.

RE: ew
# Mar 03 2004 at 10:02 PM Rating: Default
I agree. It's an okay item, but not many people want it for the stats. They want it for the gate... and this is a hard quest. Not just anyone can get it. Elemental flags take awhile to get.

After months of working on this quest, i finally got my last fragment from PoAir tonight. Much to my dismay, when i put the 4 Fragments into the Small Lined Box along with the Powered Clockwork Talisman and hit combine, NOTHING happened. Didn't get a messaget that "These items cannont be combined in this container" or anything. Just plain nothing happened. I still have all my pieces, filed a /petition and a /bugreport.

Anyone else have this problem lately? Or am i just having some bad luck?

PS

This quest has NOTHING to do with PoTime access for anyone who is wondering. It's just a cool quest that results in a neck item with NICE stats and gives Melee a chance to Gate to PoK for a small price ( Quintesence of Knowledge are Shaman made for around 105pp or can be bought in Bazaar for around 150pp on Fennin Ro). Sure beats buying Gate potions though *shrug*

Did you notice that they chipped in the extra Agility for last one, but no Dex?
Agility is a nice thing, and really for the bigger races, but Dex would also be nice.

All in all, I would love to have something like this though, the resists, sta, hp, and the Unlimited Gates rock for nongaters.

I am just stating from my view, and since this lacks ac on it, i would hope they'd give it some agi >_>

Even if you dont wear it, it's worth the Unlimited Gates. The stats are nice and the Resists are sweet. but if for some reason you prefer not to wear it heck slap it in a bag and use it for the unlimited Gates to PoK. Many times i've been stuck in Bum Fuc* wishin for a way out. If i had this on any of those nights Bling insta port to PoK.

It costs about as much as a gate potion to refill this item per use so dont get all freaky about the gate, though nice, you have the ability to gate right now.
RE: So What if you Cant Wear it
# Jan 24 2004 at 9:57 AM Rating: Default
Not true on the cost for gate potions. I have a shaman who practices Alchemy. Gate potions cost around 300 to 800 plat to make, depending on where you want the potion to take you. And that's if the Shammie doesn't fail on the combine, which is almost unheard of. Stand in PoK sometime and listen to peeps auctioning gate potions. They usually sell for 2.5K for a 5 dose shot. Quintessence of Knowledge only costs around 105 Plat to make, has a trivial of 30, and is almost a no fail combine for any shaman lvl 30 or higher. MUCH cheaper to have this item and buy a stack of the QoKs for qaround 1K, than buy a 5 dose Gate potion for 2.5.

OK, I probably shouldn't mention this since SoE will nerf it for sure.. But, Current prices for a 5 dose gate potion are about 1500pp.

I use 4 of the gates and sell the remaining dose back to a vender for about 975pp.

thats comes to about 130pp per gate, and I dont have to be elementals flagged to get do it.

#sugarbearcsa, Posted: Sep 17 2003 at 1:36 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Well since it Lore you can only have One at a time, So you would have to destory it and then do the first quest and the this one to get it again. A better idea would be to finshes the last quest with this, that will give you a stronger one, with Unlimited charges

With every turn in for the next gate neck you give the NPC your CURRENT gate neck along with the NO DROP items that you collect from certain zones. Meaning I'm 3 fragments from my last neck when I'm ready to do my turn in I take the 4 fragments from the elemental planes and my Powered Clockwork Talisman and turn them into Elder Clinka, in turn you receive The Binden Concerrentia.

This thing is perfect for making plat or for the sale of lore items, as a caster you can bind where loot is, then use this to gate to pok for a quick sale and gate back to get more lore items to sale.
My friend does this all the time but he's a druid and can port lucky him, now we all can profit in the same way with this.

Gate potions are not cheap, a 10 shot gate potion costs 3000pp in the bazaar, guild shaman makes em for 2800, still it's 280 to 300pp per port. That can wear your bank down in no time, especially if ya like to farm SRT for molds to mule.

The neck is damn nice no doubt, good resists and decent stats. The cost of reagents comes out to cost about 150pp per port. So it basically cuts the cost in half compared to gate potions. Still a little too much to just use 20 times a day, but damn nice.

Actually you can sell a 10 dose gate potion with one charge left to a merchant for 2k so that effectively costs you 800pp for 9 gates. That is a reasonable cost in my opinion.

No both posts were correct. The original was saying that you could make a 10 dose potion use 9 doses then sell the item with a single charge back to a vendor for the same price as a 10 dose potion with all the charges remaining. Thus you could recover a large proportion of your money making each does effectively cost alot less.

The second poster updated the information as recently Sony has changed the way that vendors deal with charged items.

Originally a 10 dose potion with only 1 charge remaining had the same sale price to a vendor as selling a 10 dose potion with all 10 of its charges left, Sony changed this recently such that the cost for multiple charges on items are now simply a multiple of the cost of the item with a single charge. So you can't reduce your costs this way any more.

the costs for selling charged items to mercahnts have not changed what so ever. Only thing that has changed is that you cant sell a fully charged item and then the same item with no charges left and then buy them both back fully recharged.
You can still sell a 10 dose gate potion to a merchant with only 1 charge left and get 2k for it. Only thing the merchant does differently is he will put the 1 charge in a different slot in his inventory then like a fully charged item (or even 2 charges left etc.) would go in, so he would sell one 10 dose potion with 10 charges left and one 10 dose with 1 charge left, but at the same price.

In a shorter explanation, charged items did not change in price concerning NPC merchants, it only effected how the merchant would sell an item with 0 charges left or a fully charged of the same item.
Useful for Far away binding

A friend of mine is a rogue who's bound in PoM ( from many moons ago when she had a locket of escape ).

Being a melee its hard for her to get around, let alone get back to PoP zones when she gates to bind. Talisman Gate takes you to PoK, so in essence she has two bind points. Its nicer than some people think.
RE: Useful for Far away binding
# Aug 09 2003 at 11:01 AM Rating: Default
I am also bound in PoM. There are a number of easy ways out depending on the time of day or who happens to be in PoM. I, personally, use my worker's sledgemallet. With the PoK book in OT, it's very handy. I also keep FoB gate potions on a corpse in case I die. If all else fails, there is always zoning into CS and begging a TL off one of the wizards that is bound to be kiting there. :) Don't get me wrong. I'd absolutly love an infinite charge tailsman gate item and this thing has very nice stats. But, it's not really this or be stuck in PoM. And, most of the time, when you really need it is right after you die and you're naked anyways.

you are an idiot for those of us whom cannot cast gate this is a life saver & if you dont know what im talking about try running a non full blood caster in eq & pick a fight with a mob that is a close battle & let some fool come running past you with a train on his back & he doesnt have the common courtesy to let you know he was coming. then tell me what you would have given for the ability to cast a gate spell as try to get your body back from deep inside a zone with no inviso to get it...


even a fool is considered a wise man if he keeps his mouth shut.

by the last quote i see you read your Bible, too bad you didnt read the information on this page.

This item will not save a life, cast time is 20!! no quick escape here...u r better off running to the zone (if there is one). Also, gate can be interupted....and if u r getting hit hard enough that you have to gate, then u will probably be interupted.

hey, but it aint to late to become wise T....

It appears to be out of reach to 99 pct of players, unless of course your guild is Afterlife

Very tough to get I'm afraid, considering you have to be flagged for the elemental planes, and most players are not likely to ever get there--possibly including myself.

The gate requires a component, unless I'm mistaken. Some alchemy-made stackable item, 110pp or so each.

Word,

According to Afterlife's website it does indeed require a component. I can't confirm as I'm sure I wont be seeing this item in my lifetime.

Are you sure that the final version requires a reagent? I'd hope that after all the work that you put into attaining this item that you at least dont have to carry around some goo to make it work.

Can anyone that has this comment on it please?

if you look up "Talisman Gate" on lucy ( http://lucy.fnord.net/spell.html?id=3046 )

it states that it *DOES* require a reagent - the Quintessence of Knowledge.

Apparently, all 3 talismans require this reagent, so you're probably well versed in carrying these around by this time.

from EQTraders, the recipe for the Quintessence is:

1 erudition vine
1 tanaan ginko

place those 2 items in a Medicine Bag and combine - trivial<35.

both items can be purchased from the alchemy vendors in PoK.

The neckpiece is still a nice thing to have for one of those (oh shoot, my raid left me in the Plane of Hate, and everyone's gone) gotchas. Would be better if the Quintessence was either cheaper, or easily farmable (or better yet, foraged!)
RE: Quite nice.
# Apr 07 2003 at 1:11 PM Rating: Decent
Foraged? Hahah. I like the combining, but then again I'm just an alchemist. :) Seriously though, it does seem silly that the end of the line quest item still needs the reagent to get home to Knowledge.

Err, this is because you probably used it as a bard. Due to basically a design flaw because instruments are "reagents" (see Lucy), items that cast anything requiring a reagent do not require it when used by a bard.

Ok so Im a meele.
But I think this is an awesome all around item.

Bind yerself in lets say Skyshrine (one of the city zones without a POP portal within earshot...and also a city nearby some higher end zones) and use this item to go around PoP portals as needed.

Never mind the awesome Hp/Resists on this.

Works fine until you die and can't get a port or a rez, then you are stuck in SS until you can find one. That would really suck. Hope the cleric likes you.

What he is saying is that if u bind in far off zone like Sky (his example) .. . u can use this to go to PoP to move around .. then if u want to go to Sky (his example) u get a wizard to TP u to bind. :) .. a very nice idea except the first two only has 5 charges till u get to the elemental planes and can get this one.
RE: Heh
# Dec 19 2002 at 3:43 PM Rating: Default
The effect on this is not a TL to bind, it is a TL to PoK only. Still nice to have.

He never said it TL'ed to bind. However being able to go to PoP allows you to go to the 18 different zones (there are 20 ports, but the Felwithe/Kelethin goes to the same zone as do the Erudin/Paineel), and a wizard can tl you back to your bind point in a remote area like Skyshrine.

You would think so, but for all the trouble it takes to get this thing it has no AC and still requires a regent. Seems kinda silly to me.

by the time you get to this you dont need the AC imo. Im a 65 Ranger with almost 100 AA. I have 1280 ac now, any more would be overkill

Heh, I'm a 65 druid with close to that AC (self buffed, though). I hate to say it, but rangers are often required to tank hard-hitting mobs in small places, and it can make a big difference to have 1500+ AC.

Take care of your AC and it will take care of you.
RE: aye
# May 31 2003 at 7:36 PM Rating: Decent
I have to agree that AC isnt as big of a deal unless you are a tank. Mobs hit so hard in elemental planes (where you have to get quest pieces from) that you really shouldnt get aggro.
