umm, it says that

2: Limit: Max Level(65)
3: Limit: Spell(Complete Healing excluded)
4: Limit: Spell Type(Detrimental only)

Good for a Cleric?
# Aug 07 2004 at 5:17 PM Rating: Decent
Can any priest classes confirm that this item is will NOT work on Healing spells...I know that the effect description says detrimental only, but it also mentions CH so I am confused. Also, I was put onto the quest by a fellow cleric (who has yet to get it) and I am in need of mana pres for my heals not my nukes. Any info would be appreciated.

Thats just SOE being lazy if you look at almost every focus in game it mentions complete healing being excluded. I guess some times they forget to actually look at what the focus does before they add in that tag ;-). Aside from that well its ok for a cleric I mean it does have really awesome stats, but the focus effect is only going to see limited use since most clerics don't spend a ton of their time casting detrimental spells (nukes, mark of kings). But every bit helps...

This is like the best questable range item ever...

I currently have Advanced Stealth and am trying to buy the MQs for Advanced Magic and Advanced Combat Manuals so anyone here on Vaezelle who has the Heart of Vakhsiz or Junk Beast Powersource please send a tell to Nadierak. =P

A friend of mine is MQ-ing all the BoT gems for me for free and I'm paying 40K for Hope Stone MQ.

Paid 20K for Rattican's Head MQ as well and all the non-ND components cost me around 3K with Diaku Symbol being by far the most.

Have 2 of the books so far (workin on the JB part atm then i'll be set)..Someone offered to buy them from me last night (he had the hopestone)..my question is 1. will it work, can the three books be given in first followed by the hopestone, and 2. how much would this mq be worth? (again, me providing the 3 books, and him simply providing the HS).

Thanks!

Dodge mod and Mitigation
# Mar 23 2004 at 2:35 PM Rating: Decent
8 posts
My roommate finished this quest awhile back, he is a beastlord and he tanks for our household groups, he has all 8 levels of damage mitigation AA's and we discovered something very sinister about this particular item, when he puts it on his mitigation ability becomes almost nothing. He went from taking approximatly 5k damage per PoFire field one mob, to taking approximatly 12k damage per. We have done some testing on it and have found it is actually better for him to have no range item on, or a tradeskill trophy rather than the secret of the planes. Our hypothesis is that it is the dodge modifier that is causing the problems so today we will test it with a fetish of the agile. Once we have conclusive findings and some parsed logfiles to show some statistical signifigance we will be turning the information over to SOE in case they care to do something about it. I suggest that any melee type who have this item and damage mitigation test it out to see if they find similiar results. here are his specs
Beastlord 65, 6000+ hps buffed, 1300+ ac buffed, all skills available to him are maxed (yes even languages and tradeskills) CS3, CA2, PE, ID5. (120+ aa's but those are the only ones that should have effects on mobs damage vs him.
I would like to hear from others who have this item and have tested it for actual mob dps vs them, especially those that have mitigation aa's.
RE: Dodge mod and Mitigation
# Jul 28 2004 at 8:50 AM Rating: Default

First off, there is not 8 levels of dmg mitigation aa there are 5 aa that effect incoming melee dmg CA/CS/ID/LR/PE. second, a dodge modifier will do nothing to negate your aa mitigation abilities it will merely raise your effective skill level. Assuming that your BL is capped at 155 dodge then it becomes 155*1.05 or 163 effective dodge skill. That is all it does in no way does that negate your aa trained mitigation effects. There are numerous reasons for the change in incoming damage, was it slowed earlier or later? different slow spell? was the dps make-up different? did the buffs change? were weapons changed during the test? over what period of time did the test take place? (RNG is streaky) Any parsing go on during this test to determine average dmg over time? any of those changes can effect the overall rate of damage per fight.

Actually no. Lr5 >> id5. The benefit of id5 is pretty nil unfortunately.

Also I find it very hard to believe that a 6k BL with 1300ac takes less dmg then me, a 65 tank with 10k+ hp 1800+ ac and all defensive skills.

I usually require 2ish cheals throughout a fire fight taking in around 10-14kish dmg (just off the top of my head, been a while since we hunted pofire gy.

As a 65 beast, I would say that it is possible. Not because he can tank better but because of the unknown factor here - the others in the group. I too am MT in household group and our groups are VERY dps heavy. If the mob is lasting half as long while he tanks, it is possible he is taking less damage than you.
RE: Dodge mod and Mitigation

Another factor to consider is the weapons being used. Wars often tend to dual wield very low delay weapons. When fighting mobs that hit as hard as these ones do, the more you try to hit them, the more they'll riposte, and the more damage you'll take.

Beastlords don't get double attack (unless they purchase it via AA), so if he were using a high delay 2hb, the lower attack speed could result in a serious reduction in ripostes, which would reduce overall damage.

Perhaps this alone isn't enough to compete with a War with full defensive AAs, but it would be a factor in any case.

Got this today, and the effect, focus effect, and dodge mod make it a perfect item for a hybrid (SK, Pally, & BL). I'd say it's even better for a BL, because the Diamond Prism of Companionship can only be augmented to primary, secondary, or range. I'd rather have the DD proc augs to my weapons, so you can imagine where I put it!
mmm, it tastes like.....

I've been looking at this item and the Marsinger Gem (Marsinger's Glimmering Gem) and I really can't decide which is more worth the trouble. My guild is not elemental yet, but I think I could get a group or three up to hate pretty regularly once people see the stats on the marsinger gems (check out the #3 gems, they are very nice also)

My thinking is going towards the marsinger side, and I'm just putting this up for people to have some food for thought when looking at range items. There are some really nice range items out there for people who like to quest, and these 2 are right at the top of the list.

Aandidar,
Go to Plane of Hate here in kazham and look at the quest for the range slot there. It has very good stats for all classes and the caster 3rd tier of that quest has FT III I think that is far superior to this item. You can go to the 4th tier of the quest and it has simular stats and focus just a bit better is all. It will make you drool, lol.

I know I'm only a low level char that probably doesnít know half of what I talk about but I did my research on this one. I didn't see anyone talk about the abilities you get from the item in the posts above. The abilities you get are good for both types of classes. You get a mana preservation and an attack bonus not including the 5% dodge mod. I looked at the other items that have the abilities that this one does and they all have either a class restriction, take up a good equip space that has much better items, or the stats arenít as good and I know the stats arenít the highest you can find but it goes to all stats for people trying to round their other stats higher. One last thing isnít this game called Everquest for a reason. Arenít you supposed to take extra time out of your day to try to do an extremely hard quest. The game wasnít made just so a bunch of people could get together kill something and take the quick way out to upgrade equip by looting. Thatís just my 2cp if you can send me a link of a better item FOR THE RANGE SLOT at my email address Dragoonmaster_7@hotmail.com[/Blue] then I will post an apology myself and say I was wrong.

Hope Stone is a completely random drop off of non-DCable MOBs in any elemental plane. I have seen them on Triloun CHampions, Rotting Arboreans, Stormrider Lightning Claws, and Giant obsidian tree spiders.

Well as a high level end game player this quest is not for all for the most part it is worthless to all bow classes, but as a mage i wold love to quest this item for one thing the way our guilds loot system this item will not cost me raid points should i choose to quest it and as for hope stone they fall of any mob in the elemental plane its just a matter of luck. Saying someone is stupid for wanting this item is bad policy. for those that want this item it is worth it but it will take a lot of effort and alot of people helping you on the way to aquiring this item you may want to look at doing some other tradeskill quests but as you grow in tradeskills the next quests become easier and easier till you have what everyone wants but are to not motivated enough to get.

I'd take this over a bow personally. Never do enough damage with a bow for it to matter, I pull with spells, and definitely could use the attack modifier. Personally I'd say this is beautiful for any class, cept rangers, but wish it had an aura effect instead of veangeance...maybe I'm too greedy =P

But ****, this is ten times better, maybe even more than that, than the range slot book I got now.

Any class except rangers? In a group/raid where a ranger only uses a bow, the secondary slot may as well be used for something useful like this =)
RE: words of encouragement
# May 16 2003 at 3:45 PM Rating: Excellent
For Rangers using Archery, Swiftwind almost always takes the secondary slot because it adds 30 Attack (As well as having 40% haste if they dont have a haste item yet which quite a few dont).

Reminds me of the time I spent getting a full suit of lambent armor. There will always be loot and there will always be better loot. People just need to learn to say it's good enough for me and end the greed.

On a side note this entire game is a waste of time. It is only a game. You can't use your SoD as a down payment on a house, and you can't eat your Justice Fruit Pies (I wonder if Cartoon Network has filed a lawsuit on that.) So how about you all just step back for a few and take a look at what at what it is you're squabling about.

The decision about this item is easy.

Wait until you get the Hope Stone. Make sure you Identify it.

Decide whether the Secrets of the Planes is better than what you have in those slots. If the Secrets of the Planes is better, decide whether it's worth the time to complete the quest.

Then if you don't want it and it's droppable, sell it.

Meanwhile, don't waste your time speculating on all those other questions.

Your Bus is Leaving! This item is great, not uber but great. The mana and HP have been changed to 100, and the effects are Vengeance 3 and Conservation of Solusek, which are decent. The quest is fun, but long and DON'T Bother Doing This Quest, unless you have plans to kill Top Mobs in elemental planes. The Hope Stone is a Super-rare drop and many people seek it. I have been raiding Elemental planes, everyday, for 3 months now, and I have only seen 4 or so drop plus never twice on the same mob. So good luck if you plan on doing this quest to completion, and if you don't like this item, you are in the 2% of all everquest players that don better loot....Otherwise pipe down fools.

Um, no. The Hope item that drops off the 'hoppers, is, I believe a "hope diamond". Regardless, its *not* the same item as the Hope Stone from Tier IV. To get this, you do have to reach the Elemental Planes or sucker someone who has gotten there out of a MQ.

I have to laugh at the terrible whining and nonsence thats going on on this post!

Don't give me this BS about RVR, first of all you are already getting rewarded for the mobs you have to kill to get the quest items for this! No one here can tell me that the Junk Beast, Rallicus, and Vhaksiz don't drop items other than the quest item for these quests. That and they do drop very good items!

Also there is crying over how many trade skills are needed to complete this. Do the **** research and stop crying!! These items are NOT no drop! In fact all three needed for the beginners manuals are found every day in the bazaar for very cheap!

The Advance manuals are not even all that difficult. Both items needed for them are the first being a drop in BOT off one of the giant tribes, Not like you don't go there to exp anyways if you have BoT flag! The second is pretty common drops off the trash in PoTactics!

Also, don't whine about the flags needed! Ooh so hard waaaa!! If you ever play on going to the higher planes your gonna need the flags anyways.

As for Fennin Ro, Yeah he sure as **** is hard to get to and he is a nasty *******, however, again you are already getting the reward for Fennin in the gear he drops!

I for one think VI has figured our RVR and you people are the ones that need to look at the whole picture and give it up!

All you kiddies drooling over this crap have no idea what a complete waste of time the three quests are. I would suspect that you have at best completed the justice trials in pop. Go take a shot at Rallos and tell me again if this is a "sweet" item for the work you have to do to even get into the zone that a Hope stone drops.

The Sigil Earring of Veracity is a a third of the work of this retarded quest, but it at least gives you 25 to all stats and 125hp/mana. As this item stands, nobody in their right mind would bother. ****, there are better stats on droppable bows out of parts you can farm with a single group in plane of earth.

I assume hope stone off fennin ro is no drop? seems kinda screwed up if it is... this is only a good item to those who have chosen to not join an uber guild... but if hope stone is droppable this might not be such a horrid quest afterall.

Pro:
It is a very nice range item. Good stats all around, and a mana preservation effect. Personally, I'd love to have it...but I may not want it so much in a few weeks when my guild does NToV again.

Con:
It requires you to kill so much incredibly tough stuff that the effort required to get it is enough that only a handful of them will be made, ever. Also, most classes have range slot items that are better, perhaps not all-around better but better for that class; any and all of those range slot items have less than a quarter of the difficulty of getting this one item.

This item is known to NOT be the Plane of Time key; that is actually the Clockwork Talisman in its final stage. If the manual is used in a further quest, which seems possible, then it MAY wind up being worth it.

# Jan 24 2003 at 12:13 PM Rating: Default
I think alot of people are missing the obvious key that this could be...

Has anyone ever actually GOTTEN this? What if it IS the key to the Plane of Time? What if it gives the knowledge to aquire the key? Keep in mind that some book equipment can be read...

YES you have to go through waaaay too much for the stats that this gives, but what about the content INSIDE the book? What if it is all worth it because it is a key item for completing something MUCH larger scale, and the text simply gives clues as to how you may use it?

Knowledge is power, my friends, and if this book is readable AT ALL, the knowledge within would HAVE to be worth all the trouble you go through to get it...

But that's just my 2 copper... I'm not in any Uber 733T guild, or whatever, and I am by no means Uber or 733T myself... I am the average high level player, so it is possible that I am just popping off at the mouth about something I know nothing about, but...

From a view outside the planes progression, and central quest, the name of this alone implies that it contains VERY powerful knowledge...

Someone had to get it for the stats and full quest to be posted here... What would be absolutely awesome is if that person would share what content the book has... It COULD be worth it after all 8) Appearances are decieving 8)

I have a quick question for ya: when was the last time you ever saw a book with stats, let alone stats like this, that was readable? I'm not saying it isn't possible but it's highly illogical since to my knowledge this would be the first one in existance.

Just food for thought though concerning the key to the Plane of Time thing. Zebuxoruk is was imprisoned in Plane of Time, correct? According to EQ lore there is supposedly a "hidden city on Norrath that honor - not worship" him. Does anyone know what city this is/has anyone seen it? If so, since there might be information about Zebux there that's found nowhere else, might somebody there know how to access Plane of Time so you can break Zebux free?

Then again starting up that time-travelling Clockwork might just do it too and that whole city thing might not matter, but hey just something to think about...

If you were going to get the flags JUST for this item, yes, it's a waste of time.

However, you make a shopping list of things you need to save up and you tape it to your monitor. The very next time you're in that specific zone, you collect the items, and cross it off your list - when you have all the items for any specific manual, you turn in your stuff and get the upgrade.

We're all progressing to try to get to the Plane of Time. Yes, it might mean gathering up all my lvl 65 friends with 300 AA points to get there, but this is one of the pleasant diversions along the way.

Don't complain that something is hard, just do it - it's not like you lose your previous book if you fail at collecting an item.

my biggest beef with this is the /laugh resists, if you can call them that. 10 to all resists? im sorry but a PoP item thats this hard to attain should have at least better than 10 to all resists. I'm not even going into the other stats because I'll still be here posting 3 days from now.

The item is not as bad as furor (the biggest whiner of EQ) has blurted out to be.

The way I see it, he judged this particular item because it is simply just an average stats for HIS character (a WARRIOR).

It is a pity that this item is "no drop" for I am positive that a handfull of FoH member would love to get this. Especially, casters.

If you check FoH members list and check some of their casters "Magelo Profile" you will see that there are a handfull that have use for it.

Also, bare in mind that just because some players are a member of uber guild, it does not mean each members of their guild has everything they want. Uber guilds has an average of around 55 members full time and maybe around 65+ including part timers. There is no way in **** a guild can equip all members of items drop (lets say as a sample) from VT. Take in consideration the drop rate, spawn time of mobs, competition from other guilds, and time it takes to complete a raid.

The items we loot does not give us an instant God like stats (that only happens in Diablo). WE have to learn to MIX and MATCH.

There are not a lot of range items for casters that has an all-round stats such as this item.

Just because you are member of an uber guild does NOT mean you have better then this. Just an example I was playing a 51 pally doing a wToV raid. The Breastplate dropped for eth Skyshirne turn in. My instead of going to me with my puny 38 ac breastplate with medicore stats. It went to the ONLY otehr plate class there. He was wearing the Champions BP. Geeze.

Now somebody else in same position, that isnt GETTING teh uber drops but on the raid with teh guild that is killing these ubers kills, wiyld love this item. Theyjust need to be lucky enough to get a hopestone when it comes time to loot it.

When you say if you are killing these kill then you have better. Well there are probably 40 other people there that want teh better too. Someone eventually will HAVE to settle for this.

Keep in mind, BTW, that what Furor was saying here was not that this isn't "good enough" for the end-game. What he said (and go look at their site for more on this) is that if you can get this, you MUST already have far better. Just look at what the flag mobs (e.g. RZ) drop on the way to this. You'll have gotten far better.

Personally, I agree with others. I think that this item is too obviously under-powered for the work, and there's simply no doubt that you'll see a PoTime quest that requires this, or perhaps 14 quests.

A range-epic would be an interesting thing. How would it display? Would it give a particle effect to the player?

ahhh tsk tsk, for a 60th epic mage you're none too bright. Reread the first post better and you will see what I mean. While most want to work all stats, a warrior like Furor or bard like Thott or even a necro like Zaar who would be getting this already has his/her key stats maxed. So you say you want to build other stats? Those aren't too hard to bring up either, most powergamers can get all the points available for stat increase aas in a short period of time. Which brings us to raw stats and effects. The mana preservation, while helpful, is only useful for a limited number of classes. The raw hp and mana, to be blunt, suck. In the era of post-luclin and its 125 hp/mana items, you must wonder where such a crappy ratio was inserted. Lets go through a logical progression here. To kill Kunark dragons, a guild before velious had to have the best items available at the time. Rubicite may have conquered Vox and Naggy, but Trak was a whole different story. Then came Velious, and guilds weren't, I promise, fighting AoW with their leet tank using Cobalt BP. They had to work to get armor they could use, and the rewards they got were improvements which let them go to the next expansion. And so we come to PoP. In this age of new stat caps, incredible buffing power, and full suits of class specific quested armor granting melees hundreds of bonus attack points, an item which could be more easily accessed by a guild with less skill by going to VT, which is, from what I gather, a much easier zone as a whole than the Fennin encounter alone. TY for your time, I love you all.

um unless you are in the top guild on your server and have tier 4 access and can kill gods with ease you arnt going to be able to complete this quest
. it requires ALL 3 Manuals ( thats 9 total quests in which the second quest is a pain and the 3rd quest is insane for the RvR X3 remember)

#MelodicoHarmonico, Posted: Jan 14 2003 at 9:34 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Doesnt identify as this... probably isa quest but IS NOT identified as that... VI / Sony could be sewed for that content. duh
#Thoringar, Posted: Jan 14 2003 at 3:41 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) QUEST PIECE. Duh, read the name of it. Anyone that destroys that because it has crap for stats is certifiable.
#FUSIONBLOCK, Posted: Jan 14 2003 at 4:10 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Apparently this is the last piece of this quest. I'll stick with Furor, the guild leader of argueably the baddest guild in EQ, and say that this is crap compared to what you have to do to get it.
#Kjelgaard, Posted: Jan 14 2003 at 1:18 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) DUDE for the risk VS Reward for this, I wouldn't wipe my @$$ with it. WTF is Verant Smoking? Crack? PCP? It's got to be something. This is a joke chump change item that you would find off a mob in say Seb, or Skyshrine or even one of the lower planes.

I guess I am a little confused by some of the posts in this section. Perhaps because I do not play on an RvR server. This appears to be quite a bit better than a number of the other ranged items that are out there. The stat bonuses on it, for a ranged item, are quite good. Additional resists are always welcome on an item as well. Not to mention that the 15% reduced mana cost focus is a peach also. I admit that the amount of work is extremely (read: ridiculously substantial, but there are also not a huge number of ranged items that have this many bonuses. The bulk of the EQ players out there are not playing on an RvR server (or PVP server for that matter). They are on PvE servers, and this would be an item that would be useful in those cases. It would personally give me the ability to concentrate on what is really important for the rest of my gear (i.e. AC and HP). Feel free to disagree with me. :)

Two notes: One, sorry about the RvR confusion. I thought they were taling about the Sullon Zek faction based server. I feel a little stupid. {sigh} Live and learn. Second, it is obvious from my level, that the high end game still eludes me. I guess I am a bit naive on the available items out there. For me, this item thoroughly trounces my breastplate in every way accept for AC and it is a darn ranged item no less. Heck, I still /drool over the Deepwater Breastplate that I am about 10 levels away from even being able to consider. So, for someone in my level range this is a fantastic item. However, perhaps when I get into my sixties and have a better selection of equipment to choose from, I will have a far different perspective.

#adamondiamon, Posted: Jan 14 2003 at 1:08 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) having to kill a couple of the hardest mobs in the game makes this junk. you would expect to get 150 hp/mana a bunch more ac and better saves for the risk the effect is a little bit of a let down even, but not horrible. takes all kinds of time to be able to even attempt to fight in the places to get this done, and in the end you get an item that on line with a velious type quest.

I believe RvR here means "Risk vs Reward", not "Realm vs Realm." The latter is a term from DAoC for their PvP servers...
#Frenzeed, Posted: Jan 19 2003 at 12:21 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) every server on DAoC is PvP, the game is based around it ;-)

#Aldarion, Posted: Jan 14 2003 at 1:07 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Oh yea, I bet Furor was expecting a piece of gear he'd actually wear /scoff

I would bet money this got destroyed...im suprised he took the screenshot. If you've looked at the quest up to and involving the Fennin Ro drop you'd realize this should be a **** of a lot better than it is. Look at what Rallos Zek drops and tell me something you have to get past him to attain should look like this pos.

Haha nice ID insert. EQ designers really are out of touch with the real RvR in EQ.

Maybe if some of them actually played the game more they would understand why most pple will think this is crappy loot given the time and effort required to obtain it.
