There has been a debate in the enchanter community for as long as I can remember on the true effect of CHA. I side on the "CHA is *extremely* important for enchanters, but not very important for other pure casters" side although I have not decided about necros yet. Therefore; I would go for the BCR over the CR for an enchanter and the CR for other pure casters.

However; I am starting to believe what I was once told, that CHA over 190 for enchanters is basically wasted. Oh well, my enchantress has a better robe now anyway.
#Alfs, Posted: Jun 11 2003 at 1:50 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) CHA for an enchanter helps mez and charm stick therefore you would like a high CHA alongside a high INT. But for a nec a negative CHA helps fears stick, so you want a low CHA. Hope this helps.

Loot change on the Queen?

I used to hunt CC all the time through my 30's and 40's and I remember the Queen used to spawn so many times that we would let the robes rot because they're lore and everyone in the group would have one.
Went in there the other night and she spawned twice in 4 hours, neither time did she drop the robe just the MotQ. Anyone know if her spawnrate and drop rates been changed ?

Wow these robes are really nice stat-wise and the price is WAY down! I bought one yesterday for my lvl 12 wizzy for 250pp...that's in EC on Bristlebane. Between this and the Stein of Moggok you can outfit a new INT caster for 400pp!

I've had this robe for a while and The Stein even longer I made an Erudite Enchanter and for about 2 weeks I played like crazy to get him to level 12 so he could get the Illusion Dark Elf spell and when he did I got this Stein No problem I didn't have to Pay I just quested it My Wizzy was about level 6 then and now he's level 32 and that was a few months ago plus with the Crystalline robes it's great and also the since I'm a ngome I have one of the best beginning casters quests in the game I think personally it's the Spellbook of the Eldritch Intitiate with great stats including 5 int with the book the robe and the stein that's already 21 int and only 3 items pretty good if I do say so myself

It all depends on server... If your wise and play your cards you can still get 600pp for these in EC on Bertoxx. While as stein of maggok can be obtained for 200pp, Supply and demand I guess

Its all about access to the item. The stats on this are nice, but it is easily obtained. I was there and solo'd the queen once(no drop). Then was joined by a 49 cleric and we got pretty bored as it was easy for us to keep the room and the hall clear.

the reason the SMR is so expensive is because of many reasons:

1. Two words: Enchanter Epic
2. Two words: Rogue Epic
3. One word: Hole
4. high level RARE mob
5. RARE drop from that high level RARE mob

if you do get your hands on one somehow though, and are not a rogue or an enchanter, either wear it cuz it looks nice, or wait till some poor chanter or rogue is working on their epic and wants to buy one for 20k =P~

Speaking only for the Blackened Crystaline Robe...
Reason for higher cost on that one is the fact it also has charisma(highly sought by chanters).
As for the other robes... /shrug

I own the BCR and proudly too ) Took me a week as a 35,36,35again, woot 36chanter :/ , Finally a BCR )

ANYWAYS:
So I guess i would pay about 1kpp for it but no more.

oh and the reason this is around 500pp is the fact that little younglings shouldnt be able to afford it ) IMHO any item should sell for 20x what the minimum lvl is to kill said mob )
i.e.: Queen is lvl 40 = 800pp. maybe this should be a basis for things huh? NAH never happen people are to greedy lol

Nowalls is right, you have to take into account WHEN the prices were entered. Note that the higher values typically are listed early on, when the item is rare. If you look at the pricing data, it would appear that if you wanted to sell the robe quick you'd need to price somewhere around 6-800 pp.

If you go in and look at the pricing data, there are several around 4-5k which brings up the average. These were mostly all posted around the time when Velious first came out. Most of the latest prices for it are in the 700-1300 pp range, which is about right. As more of these are looted, the prices will drop. I bought mine for 900 pp, and wouldn't sell it for anything right now. Once I get my Shining Metallic Robe (crosses fingers), I'll sell it.

The robe is worth 1k now, however last time i was down there the queen wasnt spawning like she normally does, took us 4 hours till she and not her PH popped, so the value may increase.
Get this robe!
# Jun 11 2001 at 5:58 AM Rating: Default
This is a great robe and quite easy to get, if you can get a group in there 40s and break and hold the room the robe is yours, the queen drops it everytime.
This can take the place of your future SMR or planes armor till you get that this is the robe you want.
Great INT bonus, and good solid resitances, everything the player wants.

Yes, a good group of mid 30's can do...doubt a group of low 30's though. Have spent about 24 hours in that room. Even with group of 40's the room can be tough to break (easy to hold though). Level 51 or so and higher can single pull and break easily. And no the Queen does NOT drop robe every time. I have killed her 8 times and she had robe 4 times. Just my 2 cp.

if you ask me , there is no real decent loot that spawn next to her. without wis or int +.es it is just weighing you down . it is best to get good charisma items on you when you sell the loot from there , or auction in the outsideing zone i hear that they sell for alot compared to the robe.

ok, i hear that this robe isnt much better than the o robe (what i have now). it looks great, and the stats are somthing i could be a bit more proud of. not much more, but nevertheless i wouldd give ANYTHING for this robe. kinda. at lvl 29 (was 30 earlier today, died cause **** spider near fv could see invis) its not too easy to come along with 10k, but i can get maybe 1k fighting giants for now. im willing to trade o robe and maybe 1k or 2k if i ever get that much, is that enough?

If you can kill Giants you should be able to come up with some Velious stuff to sell/trade to get this robe. Id come up with about 5kpp worth of stuff if you are planning on trading.

This robe simply does not go for this. Depending on where you are, you can get this robe for around 3500pp. If you can somehow make it to Crystal Caverns, bring 2kpp and I can guarantee you will walk out with the robe. The stats are pretty good considering the looks of the robe too. Other than the Froglock Bonecasters robe, Robe of melding auras, Tolapumj's Robe and Crimson Robe of Alendine (these are all quite pricey too) it is also really the only robe to wear for mags until they can loot the no drop ones. The Advisor and Shining Metallic are probably not bad buys either but they just dont look as good with weaker stats for the Advisor and a higher price for the other. Oh well hope I helped someone.

breaking the spawn
# Feb 16 2001 at 2:33 AM Rating: Default
Last night I broke the spawn with the following group, it was a very close fight cause someone wondered a bit and we got some adds.

43 cleric
40 chanter
38 ranger
45 ranger

We invised and ran up to the Queen (it was her ph but you get the point). then the rangers attacked it and the enchanter mezzed the others. I (the cleric) root parked a few and chain healed the chanter till he got them all under control. This method works pretty well if you keep away from the water so you dont get to many adds. The room is easy after you break it. We were there for 2 hours and no queen, but we did get some nice from the adviser.
RE: breaking the spawn
# Feb 21 2001 at 3:40 AM Rating: Default
Hmm funny I walked in and cast splurt, envenomed bolt and bond death followed by root... she died... dropped the robe. Pretty easy. No social aggro from other mobs. Definately not a 50 spider. Widow Mistress is a true 50 mob... with 12k hp. Queen D had Id say around 4k tops.

Interesting...

My group consisted of

36 cleric
38 shadowknight
39 bard
38 enchanter
40 druid
40 rogue

Probably about equal in power to your group. Also happened to be the best pick-up group of my life. However, when we had to break the room, the queen was up.

We scouted the room, it had 2 webmasters, queen, 2 spiders, and 2 velium crawlers in the water. Basically we went in and got our *** kicked. We DID take the queen down, but the main looter had a robe and they were lore, so the robe rotted. Druid said "evac?" And preceeded to evac, but I had divine aura up and so got left behind :P. I died... the group ran back... got my corpse and looted.

Round 2. Queen's first body decayed, then queen popped AGAIN. This time we pulled the crawlers through the water to the bridge directly before her room, leaving Miss Thang, a crawler, and 2 webmasters for us to deal with. We went in, and even without harmtouch (SK had used it on queen) took her down EASILY. The key was keeping the mobs off the enchanter, and with 3 mobs mezzed we beat down the queen easily.

After that it was not too much of a problem holding the room. In 4 hrs 30 minutes of camping, our group got 4 bubbles of experience each and the following loot:

1 Crystalline sword
5 Crystal webshields
2 Crystalline robes (one rotted)
3 Crystal grinders
2 Messengers of the queen (Paladin only piercer)

Even though I died once, I won the roll on a sword, a robe, a grinder, and a piercer, so it was a very, very good night for us.

By the way, Queenie popped 4 times, Dracnid Retainer popped 6 times, Grinder popped 3 times. The retainer can spawn either as a PH for the queen OR outside in the hallway. A webmaster can also be a PH for queen. Grinder spawns randomly in the long tunnels between stalags and queen room.

Overall this dungeon is awesome. Beats the tar out of Lower Guk's 30 crap respawn, train-prone, terrible pathing, dungeon from ****. By the way, the Crystalline Sword is much better than a ykesha.

Good luck adventurers, and have fun in the Crystal Caverns!

The Queens' loot

I am not sure, but it seems that she doesn't have
any particular "rare" or "common" drop. Maybe both the sword and the robe drops as "common". Most the times I have fought her though, the robe is the common one, but since so many people say that the sword is the common one, maybe it's 50/50 chance on this one.
RE: The Queens' loot

I killed the Queen 5 times today, she dropped the robe the first time, and the sword each time after.
I was rather disapointed as I was told the robe was the common.

The robe
# Dec 15 2000 at 7:59 AM Rating: Default
It's only slightly better than the advisor robe, it has +1 int more, but 10 mana less so that balances, same amount of agi, same magic resist, only real difference is this robe has 2 AC more (not much especially to a caster) and it has +10 SV cold (if you really need the frost resist though, this definitely helps)
Ummmm
# Jan 19 2001 at 3:02 AM Rating: Default
Trust me, on PvP, you REALLY need the frost resist, unless you like being hit by an ice comet spell that does over 1k of damage. Just throwing in my 2 plats worth.
RE: The robe
# Dec 31 2000 at 7:37 PM Rating: Default
It depends on what equipment you can get for your character. Personally, I can't get any high +mana robes, so I'm looking for INT robes right now and +mana elsewhere. The extra int is worth more to me, and the loss of 10mana is negligible.

The posted price here is ridiculous though, and I expect it to drop. For that price I'd go ahead and get SMR for the int.

I always wanted a cryo-robe. While I may not be able to get the color scheme that I love so much at least now I can get the design ;)
RE: The robe
# Dec 27 2000 at 9:48 PM Rating: Default

Not that rare
# Dec 13 2000 at 4:41 PM Rating: Default
Ok its not as rare as some say, although maybe I just got lucky. Someone also said it was her common at first then they switched it to rare. Well I camped the queen for 3 days starting the morning after Velious went live. And from my experience it was NEVER her common, it has always been the rare.. It was extremely rare the first day but seems to be dropping quite a bit lately.

The day after Velious went live I camped her for 5hours. She is on a 20 minute timer and the rest of room on a 15. I got her four times in the first 2 hours al with the spear, then she didn't spawn for the other 3 hours once.

The next day I went back and camped her 1 hour. 2nd spawn had the robe. THe next day a group camped her roughly 6 hours and got 4 robes in that period.

I went back the next day, first spawn, robe :)

Anyway its not that rare anymore or at least it didnt seem to be. MANY people have this robe already.

Also for any mages 51+ out there this room is a breeze to solo and break with your 51 earth pet and Scintilation. I found a group of an enchanter cleric druid and 49 mage have a hard time breaking it :) But 51+ mages should have no problem. THe initial breakin CAN be rough if not done correctly. But if done correctly a 51+ mage can pull solos mostly and maybe at times 2 at most to clear the room..

Nice camp btw.. 3 named spawns in her room drop nice stuff, and the crystal grinder drops in the hall near her. Also the zone out is just around the corner ;)

my guild just camped her and she spawned five times while i was there and a few more before I arrived, that was about once an hour. We kept the room cleared at all times. I think all in all we got 5 robes, and the pally weapon was on the last spawn but no robe.

Youre either very lucky or full of crap.

The queen herself is a rare spawn. I have gone many hours without seeing her.

Hehe.... good luck...
They changed her common drop to the pally weapon and the robe to her rare drop which is roughly every 8 hrs... hehe i know from experience... never go in assuming the easiest loot to get :)

Well either her or her place holder spawns every 20 minutes or so. Usually will get a couple of these things over a 5 hour period. Longest we've gone with no queen is about 3 hours.

Also there are lurkers, retainers, and purifiers named dracnids that spawn right next her and drop some decent stuff like 11/29 1HSlash swords that can be dual wielded and a nice AC15 shield for casters and priests that looks like a shimmering orb and has some nice stats cept no INT or WIS.

camp on the queen and pull all the way up the hall, at least to the spawn point of the grinder spider that drops an wicked cool looking piercer 9/27 2AC and sometimes you will get a retainer/lurker/purifier in place of the grinder as well.
