I got mine years ago and still use on raids in 2009. Multiple mobs I alternate between AA slow and clicky due to retimers. This is still a "should have" for shammys.

So last night the NCG (the guild association that I'm on on Stromm) made our first attempt at Time (we cleared it). After clearing Phase 3, the only other Shaman on the raid said goodnight, so when a Time's Antithesis dropped from Saryrn, I was one lucky shaman.

From what I'm reading here this is a super rare drop, which means I just got really lucky. My guild got to Saryn last night for the first time, and this beauty dropped. Haven't had a chance to try it out yet, but from what I can see this might be the best wep in the game for a shammy next to the 2.0. Turgur's is my most used slow, because of duration, mana cost, and rate of slow. Now it costs zero mana to cast, so mobs that resist don't run me dry on mana when i have to keep recasting. Plus, since it's a clickie, there is no delay in recast time, unlike the actual spell. Also frees up a spell slot. Kinda makes you wonder what Sony was thinking when they made the 1.0 lol. This is a killer tool for raiding shammies. Grats to Sony for finally making an attainable good weapon for us. I am extremely happy with my new toy, has a very cool graphic as well, already got a bunch of comments on it :)

Time's Antithesis is no where near a common drop. I have seen it drop twice, and the guild I'm in has done Saryrn 35 times and only 3 have dropped total.

I have been raiding PoT since March and still havent seen one drop. Last one to drop for the guild was in late Feb05.

Thats 18 weeks, so we have done Time approximately 9 times without seeing 1 TA.

Well after 4 months of being in PoTime and killing Saryrn maybe 25+ times and seeing this drop one once, last night we killed Saryrn again and TA No.2 dropped and I was lucky enough to bag it!! yay!! Due the 2 that I have seen drop in all this time I would say that it is very very rare. Good luck to anyone hoping to get one!

TA on Stromm
# Jan 21 2004 at 5:39 AM Rating: Default
Just got this on Stromm a couple weeks ago, was the first on the server with one. Now my guild ( Realm of Insanity ) has two. Heard a lot of rumors about this, that AL only has 3 or so. No clue about its rarity. We've killed Saryrn prolly about five times now, and have gotten just the two to drop.

The most useful property on this sucker is the no recast delay. I'm still killing myself by over aggroing with this sucker. Just too easy to hit the button again when you get a resist.

You never realise how much mana we waste on slows until you get this sucker. Doing a hard LDoN, I can double dot everything now and stay at full mana for each new pull, without canni. Can go to a druid healer if I want to canni. Its also been great for powerleveling. Just chain cast it to keep aggro and let the mobs beat on me.

Dream on! I'd stop playing if elemental plains were opened to all, let alone PoTime. These zones belong to high level players who have spent many, many hours getting there and are a challenge to fight in. I'm pretty sure a lot of highend guilds would collapse with people retiring etc. If that ever happened.

actually no, EPs and Time will both be 85% able soon, and ppl wont have to get a dozen plus flags to get them selves flagged either. the one thing im surprised abuot is that Vex That has never changeed, when most eveything things els higher lvl has. but then again if a guild really wants, the can get everyone VY flagged in like a week, every shard is soloable and the only part that isnt = emp, where 42 ppl get the piece per kell ( it only takes 24ish to kill now ) and the lucling raid mob part, which is pretty much 1 groupable now

actually not so. if we look at your logic there are no keyed zones before, yet there still are(they are easier to get keys for though.) look at ST,VP,VT still need keys for all.

Well, the pattern that SOny (previously verant) uses, is pretty consistent. EVENTUALLY, most of the restricted entry zones are opened to all players, AFTER they are no longer the "uber" place to be.

For example:

1)velious, used to have ONLY one port location that anyone could use. Had to get keyed to use the others.

2) tier 2 and 3 planes. These used to require flags, and many people complained it would ruin the game, or unbalance it, and cuase all the upper guilds to quit, if these were opened.

It did none of these things, in fact, there is one tier two plane that my regular grind group likes to go to, that we typically are the only ones in (not PoV obviously).

But by the time they opened the second/third tier planes, all the ubers were on to elementals/time. In fact, one of our resident uberguilds (ascent/rodcet nife server) seems to have tired of time, and seems to be doing LDoN every time I see them.

I'd say that once Sony releases another Raid type expansion, and PoP becomes the new velious, they will probably drop those flag requirements, at least for the elemental planes. By that time, there probably will be some non flagged folks, with the thousands of LDoN points needed to gear out in stuff that would give them a shot of surviving there (think full suit of Royal attendant armor, with augments filled)

#nickdr the Great, Posted: Oct 31 2003 at 7:50 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) that's cause it takes now on average 2 days to clear all of Time (assuming that you've beaten quarm a few times and have no problems with him), so the rest of the week you have to do something.

May I suggest then that you look at places such as ST (which still requires a key) and VT (which still requires a LOT of keying)?

I'm not for opening them either they are there for a purpose.... a kind of reward.....

But **** if it got rid of many of the snobs and jerks that are so prevelant in some of the "Uber" guilds I'd be all for it. WAY too many egotisitical snobs in some of those guilds and the game would be much better if they ceased to exist.

ok look at it this way. they will most likely open ep to all when they start to become a zone where no one goes ne more. that used to be the thing with MM and Paw now they are hard level zones because no noobs would go to them ne more. Eventually 99% of the guilds that have access to ep will not be using them, and then sony will end up changning it.

Yes they have not opened zoneslike ST or VT or VP to anyone and for good reasons... if anyone went in there, they would have millions of complants for lost corpses etc.. PoTime is extremely hard to get into for a reason, if you can get into it, your guild can handle it (even though you wipe you can still kill in there hopefully) and your guild is uber.

By the way, if I'm not mistaken, the PoTime has a graveyard in it, or at least PoTimeB does...I dont recall =) So it'd be pretty hard to lose a corpse in there...

No offense but you can keep dreaming; Luclin is an year old content now did they change VT and make it everyone's zone? Nope.
People who dont want to work their way but only hoping others will open the door for you is sick.

Plane will NEVER be open to regular Joe's like us. First of all, it's raid only, Plane of Time has no live mobs...only a raid of 54 or more can advance in Plane of TimeB. The first tier of 5 trials only lets you have 18 peeps per trial, and u only have 1 hour to complete all 5. Trials take about 30 mins each. Also note there is a maximum of 72 people allowed in timeB, so its not like this can be zerged in anyway.

Secondly, Elemental tiers will never be open to regular joes..the loots are too good, plus most of the zones is raid stuff, there is very little content for soloing and grouping. Plane Air, Earth B..no solo/grping at all....Fire is the best, earth A(at GY only) and water u can, but not much room for more than a few groups.

actually... only 18 are aloud to advance through PoTime B portal at one time hehe. But to take down mobs like SSaryn, Quarm and Rallos Zek etc... you need at least 30+ 65's with 100+ aa and an extensive knowledge of strategy.

Please dont talk about something you dont know anything about..at least dont try and correct people. there is no way any force less than 60 will kill any god.

Well, actually alot of the gods are being taken out with less than 60. ****, our first Bertox kill was with 50. There are a few of them that require a bit more people... mostly cause of the little things that each mob does, but it's safe to say that almost everyone can be killed without having 60+ people in the zone. The more the better though cause each mob has an assload of hps and it takes a bit to chew through each one.

Oh, yeah. TimeA has mobs in it that you can target. These mobs though are not targetable until you kill quarm the first time. It's not by instance though it's by server. So, once someone on your server kills Quarm, then all the mobs in TimeA are targetable, and no, they do not attack you unless you attack them.

i.e. Most everquest players will never see the Planes of Time. This zone is the hardest to get to (at this point). It takes a large guild to get thru the elemental planes, 5 groups of 18 for the pota events to get into the chamber, and 4-6 hours of work to get to the gods.

As amazing as this is, and it REALLY is, it's still kind of disappointing to see another excellent piercer (Winterstorm comes to mind) that is almost totally unattainable for 99.9998% of us. I'm not complaining about this weapon at all, I'd just like to see a few more that are the equivalent of some of the LoY 1hb's that are out there; decent stats, a nice variety of effects, good dam/del ratio, and, more importantly, availablity. But then again, that keeps the resale value of my rune etched fang up for when I can finally replace it with me epic.
