It's been asked 5 times through this whole thing but yet to be answered... How do you recharge it?? and to sum up for everyone else on PvP not there don't waste your loot, on non-PvP rangers rejoice!!!

so, I take it no one knows if this item is rechargeable... ppl have asked a couple times already, but only replies I see is everyone bragging about how they got one and who can or can't use it instead of looking at the item description. Anyone got the 411 if this can be recharged?

from information i got ingame any item can be recharged by gnome tinkerers.. if they put the item and a mana battery ( the size depends on the item ) into a toolbox and combine it recharges the item. I cant cnfirm this as i havent tried it but hope this helps

Not true. Only the PoSky quest items, and a small number of Tinkered items, can be recharged in this way. MOST Charged items in the game, like this one, are NOT rechargeable.

You can recharge any item.....As long as you sell or a vendor has bought a fully charged item. Then you sell the item that is out of charges to the vendor. And buy back the items and it will be fully charged. 1 Sell fully charged. 2 Sell uncharged. 3 buy em both back and they will both be charged. 4 make sure you have not sold the uncharged one in first. or they will both be uncharged. 5 you will need a mule for lore items or a compadre.

P.S. I said charged alot

"intended for """""races""""" that could be the evil classes" You need to learn to read, and comprehend. There is a diference between EVIL RACES ( hated almost every where ) and evil CLASSES ( tolorated for the most part by there own Race)

Humans can be Shadowknights ( evil ), or Necromancers ( evil )
Erudites SAME
Gnome - Necromancers

This leaves out why High Elfs are allowed.

However if it was bassed on one of the DARK religions then They fit. There wizards can worship Solsek Ro

They aren't. It's Half elves, though that, too, makes me wonder.

Also, gnomes can be 'evil' clerics and SKs. And it's races that our tolerated by their own race, classes that are hated nearly everywhere.

Barb shaman cannot. I am surprised Frogs can since it was originally only intended for races that could be the "evil" classes, ie. Necro and SK. But then again, so much has become more Monte Haul than RP so no real surprise. Going to have to try for one for my frog now :-)

It would seem to be that on the Zek servers, the success rate has been severely nerfed. But if you're on a non-Zek server, you still have the same chance. Or at least a better chance than on a Zek server. :-)

Ive heard ( not confirmed personally ) that this item was nerfed on all PvP servers due to the fact it had basically a 900 hp life tap effect that took less than 2 seconds to get you walk up to that twinked out 60 wizard who just soloed some big mob and go up and click the earring 6 times and splat...LOADING PLEASE WAIT.. while you loot the sweetest item off his corpse. The got rid of it AFAIK, so Ivandyrs Hoops with all 6 charges on them on PVP servers that are left probably cost a fortune. Still a VERY nice earring for the effort on non PVP servers tho, especially as a shaman if all 900 hp ( 6 casts x 150hp/cast ) landed, the mob would be down 900 hp and you would have 900 more hp to cannibalize to make the kill or make your escape.
To answer the question, yes, its still drops on blue servers, and not on PvP servers due to it being overpowered for PvP.

I got one of these last night. I spawned Lynuga by killing everything that moved around Guk entry, including 2 of the Nobles. After about 30 min she spawned at pos 400, neg 482. I handed in gem 1 and got a hammer. the 2nd one gave me nothing--I assumed I got a hammer again and since they are lore It didnt go into inventory--so I ran and sold the hammer at the troll at the stone hand ( pos 1180, pos 540 ) and ran back to Lynuga. I did this until I ran out of gems and when I went back to Grobb to get more ( cant remember merchants name ), I got attacked by guards that werent KoS before. So I zoned back out and invised, ran back to the the merchant. One guard wouldnt leave the area, so I walked to a safe spot and cast root on him, which broke my invis and he came after me. After I had him rooted out of the way I got more gems and gated back to Lynuga. I got the loop and didnt spend as much as the market value in doing so ( around 4k on Luclin server ). Just keep in mind its best to have 2 people doing this, one to do the turn ins and one to sell the hammers/axes and buy more gems--the gems with 136 CHA in Grobb were 131pp and change, and the weapons sell for 70pp each roughly. You will waste troll basher faction but merchants will still deal with you if u need to buy the rubies in Grobb. Finally an upgrade to my Forrest Loops ( to bad IH's are lore ).
By the way, there is no truth to the stories that you have to hand in 4 rubies at a time to get the hoop or give them to her stacked--give her one at a time.

This is still dropping. I had 2 rubies on me and saw this gal. Gave her the 1st one and got the axe, gave her the 2nd and bingo! got the hoop.
I remembered reading these posts and equipt my opal encrusted stien which brought my charisma up to 75 (Dark Elf Necro :).. but then who can say if that had anything to do with it at all.
So, still dropping good luck all.

# Jun 17 2002 at 12:09 AM Rating: Default
as of the June 6 patch, this item was nerfed. It not longer drops, or has been put to a rate that is insane. I went there, and spent over 15 stacks of rubies for one of these. I wanted that effect to save my life, but found, i emptied my bank account. I got friends to try it, people will ally faction, everything. IMO the item has stopped dropping.. and it was such a nice item.

I play on both Rallos Zek and Xegony. I have been looking into these hoops for a long period of time now. I decided to give it a shot. On Xegony, it took a while to find Lynuga up but I got the hoop on my 27th ruby. Rallos Zek, on the other hand, is a different story =(... I used over 275 rubies on this (&#$(&#. After about the 100th ruby my attitude was 'OK, I have gone this far... not going to quit now after putting so much money in...' So, being the rich guy I am, I have(errr HAD) over 125k so I figured I would be able to get it eventually, I used more and more rubies. Around the 200th ruby, I petitioned. I kept on going, and finally gave up when a GM began talking with me. Well, it is confirmed... due to it being overpowered PvP-wise, it has officially been nerfed *cry*.. I wasn't even wanting it for PvP reasons =(

Just figured I'd add something, if you are on Rallos, and you are looking for one of those GODFORSAKENLY TOO COMMON (&#$(#*&$#& axes, then I would suggest doing this quest. Otherwise, do yourself a favor and keep those rubies... add it to your <I'm going to get a horse> fund.

sorry to change the subject, but speaking of horses, how much do they cost? i have heard from a lot of people that they cost over 100,000 pp, but i just wanted to check the prices out of my own newb dreaming, and to my surprise they were less then 87,000pp. would faction have changed the price that much or is that there actual price? and yes, i was looking at the chain (best quality right?) horses

The cheapest horse is around 8k (with cha buffed). The really nice thing is that 8k gets you 90% of what is useful about a horse. The speed aspect is mostly a red-herring (get yourself 10 sow potions for 1k, and those should last you quite a while). The real benefit for casters is that you are effectively always sitting, but with no agro! I've heard horses described as FT 10 for this very reason!

A horse is going to be my next purchace... then some rubies :-)

Saw Lynuga up, was carrying a lot of rubies I was using to make Mistletoe Sickles, and was feeling lucky (had just gotten a nifty new Vengeful Mistmoore Shield - thanks, Grongl!). I decided to drop some rubies on her. Gave her a single ruby - Brutechopper. Gave four more at once, got the mallet (and presumably lost three other items due to their being lore). Another set of four, and got the Hoop. Still feeling lucky, gave another character with me the rubies I had left, they turned in four - another Hoop! So two hoops for only 13 rubies.

Doesn't seem nerfed - just the vagaries of the much maligned RNG. Color me a very lucky (and happy) ogre.

Magicfeather was a short lived event type thing in NK a while back. I seem to recall something like this name a while back and a guildmate confirmed my suspicion. Kinda like the "swarm queen" in WK who was a short lived blue diamond dropping mob that was an easy kill for one 50+ back when the whole qeynos badge series started. I am still bitter that I never managed to waste that bug....

Do you mean Grimfeather, or was a mob added recently that I'm unaware of?

Can someone confirm that by giving Lynuga rubies you lower your faction with Da Bashers in Grobb? Seems like a crappy thing to do to us trolls that rely on Grobb merchants but would also like the hoop.

If this IS true - what's the best way to raise your faction with Da Bashers to correct the negatives form giving her rubies?

Many thanks!

There is one way I know of that raises faction with the bashers. When you first come into grobb before you cross the stream look in the cove on the right side. One of the bashers there is looking for fire beetle eyes (not sure how many he wants but think it is 4). This is the only quest besides the froglok tadpole flesh and froglok meat that you can turn into the warrior guild leader, but you need pretty decent faction to be able to do this one. Hope this helps some.

Info on the quest
# Oct 06 2001 at 4:19 PM Rating: Excellent
226 posts
Greetings all,

today I figured since I had the cash, I'd give this quest a try (on Zebuxoruk, price I saw was 4kpp for this earring). I bought a stack of ruby for 2635pp (with 185 charisma) and headed to the swamp. She wasn't on track at the time I arrived, so I kill a few of the humans and high elves wandering around (bad faction hits here). She spawned near the entrance to guk after around an hour, so I set my plan in action. being an enchanter, I reclaimed my pet, then charmed her and ran to the troll dealer in the middle of the zone. By bringing her there, you can sell the lore hammer and axe as soon as you get them and reclaim 75pp of the initial 130pp for the rubies. Eventually my charm broke off and she attacked me.

First piece of good info :
She cons green at 49 and dual hits for 80 tops whith around 585 ac.

Anyways, I charmed her again and gave her the rest of the rubies. I went thru my whole stack and didn't get the earring, and I also noticed something else.

Second piece of info:
Once in a while, you get NOTHING for handing in the rubies (around 1 out of 8 times for me).

At this point, I had gotten back 1400pp from selling the weapons, so I ran to Oggok to buy 10 more rubies.

Third piece of info:
There's nowhere to buy rubies in Oggok =)

I got a friend to check on the web for the closest place to buy some, and it turns out it's in Grobb. That's not great if you're KOS, but I had no problems being an enchanter. This took me around 30 minutes, and when I came back, Lynuga was still there. This time, I figured ***** it, I gave her all the rubies and let the weapons drop on the ground. I finally got my earring on the 24th ruby I handed in.

Since I was done and there was no one else in the zone, I figured may as well kill, so I did.

Final piece of info:
She has around 800-1200 hp and dropped 1 ruby and one quest ruby needed for the jeweled skull quest.

Overall, this quest may be annoying and seem like a huge gamble, but the way I see it, I started with 2635 pp and ended up with one earring worth 4kpp+ and around 500pp so it was well worth it.

Hope this has been some help because this wasn't the first time I tried the quest, and I know that without any info, it's a pain in the ***.

There was a patch a while back if a npc tries to give you a lore item, it will tell you "duplicate lore items not allowed". Same message if you try to loot a lore item.

Can prove this on the warrior guild leader in Ak'Anon. Say 'I am a new warrior' and he gives you a lore card. Say it again, says you already have one.

Actually, its only useable by races that can worhsip an evil god. I'm pretty sure Half Elf warriors can worship Innoruuk. As such, all Half Elves are able to wear it.


Edit: Doh, I see I posted the same thing down a ways.

Just at DL spires tonight ... and a perfect stranger gave my necromancer a used up one.

You all have permission to cry now, did not know the pain of getting it, or the value. Almost gave it away again :P. Kinda glad I didn't now ... think I have the cash to pay off the Halfling Mafia whom I owe 1800 PP to. Actually, what am I, nuts? Not gonna sell this toy!

Ok, enough about how to get the thing.

What exactly does Spirit Tap do? I assume its a life tap, but how much?

And what the **** kinda messed up race restrictions are those. Half the medium races, and 2/3 of the large races? Seems random.

For a moment I thought it was for evil chars only (which would make sense, considering who you get the thing from), but to the best of my knowledge, Half Elves can't be anything evil.

Spirit tap is a 150 lifetap

My understanding is that only races that can worship evil gods can equip the earring... HalfElves can worship innoruuk (warriors)... or at least they used to be able to.

what lvl is she?

Bah I was wandering to Rathe Mountains to buy rubies for this quest, I happend to see Lynuga on track so I hurried myself, When I got back to her I handed in my first gem, presto I got a brute chopper, 2nd gem I got a mallet, 3rd I got the hoop...
Main reason I got the loop was because I needed to change out my forest loop for one with more AC (sarnak earings too rare). I saw the earing on one of my fellow Rangers so I decide herm AC is nice on it...Turns out to be that Rangers can use the item, just not wood elves...*sighs*
ok and off my rant, I turned in 5 more gems and got choppers and mallets

She has various named PH's for sure ( the humans and such ) .. but not all of the named ones are *HER* PH's ( but they are PH's for other NPC's ) .. small newbie stuff are NOT PH's for Lynuga.

She hangs out in the area between Guk, the Hand merchant and the Shadowed Men, wandering every so many minutes (hail her to keep her in one spot, and sell the crap weapons for 71 plat to the troll merchant and run back)

I know people will prolly claim something else is her PH, but I've gotten atleast 20 loops (on average about 40 rubbies per loop ), and by now I've learned what will be on track when she is up, and which NPC's will be up if she's not.
Good luck? Or rub it in your face, you wish you could use on

After carefully reading all the post about this hoop, I decided to buy a stack of rubies and give it a try. My concern was faction. Nobody has posted anything about it. After zoning into the swamp, I quickly picked up Lynuga on track...she attacked me (Woodelf Ranger) and I ran to zone. I came back, tracked her down again, went around behind her, used "Sneak" and turned in a ruby. It worked, I got one of those weapons that sold or 75pp. I had to wait untill she was stationary (she roams) and do it over and over. If you had an evil aligned friend, he could sell those weapons as you get them because they are all lore. After the 10th try, the hooop droped into my bag. I was VERY jazzed. I tried to equip and, DUH, woodelves cant use. So I gave it to my friend to hold and decided to turn the rest of the rubies to see if I can get another since I was there. Four more rubies and another hoop dropped. I eventually gave them to my guild but I sure wih that could've used one. Bottom line: If your high enough level and have enough money, do it. With Charisma at 95, it cost me 135pp/ruby. Its a very good item and alot of ppl can use it.

For the person that posted about training lynuga for efficiency in turning in the rubies to Lynuga.

I've never tried this but I'm sure this will work. I SELDOM post on here because people will percieve my posts the same way I percieve most peoples, pure crap. The reason that this should work is due to Lynuga's faction. When you kill her it raises your faction with Da Bashers while lowering faction with Broken Skull clan. There are other factions involved but the faction gain with Da Bashers is key to the newb guards of Grobb not assisting her. They obviously don't aggro her because on occasion she will decide to wander past them.

Until this idea I had given up trying for the hoop, now my plans have changed. The reason I gave up is that I've spent about 3k pp giving that B#$%^ rubies. I now kill her every time I see her, after shouting numerous times that she's up.

On Xev, Waited in the swamp, killing all no troll NPCs except for the stupid postal bard. No Lynuga. Pulled up my druid to track the NPCs and started killing them left and right! Finaly, checked tracking and woohoo Lynuga spawned! Started giving her rubies and creating new trolls characters to hand the items to (got 6 characters and each has a Midnight Mallet and a Brutechopper) and got 2, count them, TWO Ivandyr's Hoops! Been giving the mallets and choppers to newbie trolls in the area!

Only used 33 rubies at 131pp per rubies (total of 4323pp) and immediately took the druid to GFay around noon and sold one for 5k immediately! I'm going to keep doing this quest and rack up lots of Plat!

BTW, this took about 4 or 5 hours. Could have been quicker if I had brough the druid in the first two hours of the search.

Humans, Erudites, Gnomes, Dark Elfs, Half Elfs, Trolls, Ogres, Iksar

That is from both Allakhazam and Caster's Realm.

When I get this hoop I am definitely going to take a picture of the statistics, submit it to Allakhazam, and pray they put it up since the current picture doesn't show the Iksar race or Gnomes.

Can anyone give us an update on the races that can wear this? I am pretty sure it has been changed, but I don't have the cash available to get me one. (Need about 1k for a sure hoop)

......... and I am hoping that they added BARBARIAN to the race =P

Wow, 1k? Your luck must be a lot better than mine, took me 3k in rubies before I finally got mine.

Still love it though, after a year ;)
