This guy spawns in the ocean next to the Gnoll camps by ToFS.
His rare drop is the + 2 regen no lvl recomm or req. belt.
He is about lvl 58-60.
He summons not very often like once every 30 seconds he summons.. but he does it twice in a few seconds then waits again enough time to get back.. heal and dot.
Im a lvl 70 druid Vt/potime geared because I just got back after a long break.
He was cake.. and i finished him with 100% health and 60% mana after redotting twice 5 nukes and a few heals.
Dropped the belt (YAY) both map parts.. sections of shield.. earring no boots.
All i wanted whats section and belt so im happy.
I have no idea how often he spawns but i usually go check every 3 days or so and hes up.

Someone had told me that this belt has not dropped for like a year now. I'm on the Inny server and I haven't personally killed Lodi, but I value what he say's since he's played for so long. Can anyone confirm/deny this? It would be a shame if it doesn't drop anymore for sure :(

Another comfirmation: Dropped about 30 minutes ago for a group up us doing a corpse run for a guildie. Turtle got in the way of a group of level 62+. It was fun getting summoned and watching him try to pound through my Arcane Rune. No one else wanted it, so it's going to my 54 war. Very nice upgrade indeed!

You've never killed a yellow or red con mob before?

It's not necessary to match the level of a mob in order to kill it. If a group of 58's can take Lodizal down then the level to attain is, justifiably, 58.
BST Usable...

This belt is BST usable, although I could have sworn it wasn't during the summer. I remember duo'ing Lodi with a chanter, and the belt dropped, finally, and the chanter had a WAR toon and I a BST toon. Well I could have sworn it wasn't BST usable then, so I passed on it (this was like July or August maybe?). Well I just solo'd that big turtle today and the belt dropped again and it is now BST usable, so I'm confused. Oh well, better late than never.

Oh these are going for about 4-5k max on Test. Maybe that's why it wasn't marked BST usable then, something goofy with Test Server /shrug

Got my belt on 11/13/03!
Really happy Sk. What happened was I woke up in the morning, friend was camping Lodi, then he spawned! Got a Shammy Bst, whipped him up in under a minute between the 3 of us.

Then, he spawned later, about 10 hours I would say, so we thjis got 5 people, I ended up dieing to save the group, which didn't matter cause I got my belt. =D
Well, just telling what happened to me.

10 str - increase atk and damage .. cool
10 dex - increase riposte, crits, procs, bow damage , bow doubles , bow crits ... coool
aura of battle increase atk by 10 and perm stackable 2 point regen .. nice

For a Ranger or Rogue this is excellent - its preety **** fine for any melee - so if you are lucky enough to get to roll on it .... congratulate whoever gets it - :) one day it may be you ...

6AC, ok that works. 10 STR, oh yeah my swift blade of Zek like. 10 DEX, Oh my Light Velium bow relly like! 30HP my sore body can use! Aura of Battle, make those health breaks shorter! And 10 ATK hum...... whats that! :) I think this is the only item I have with added ATK so this is not something I ever looked at. But hey extra anything, ok give it to me!!! Being that I only solo for now this is great all around for my little 32 Ranger! I wouldn't complain about added stats, unless they don't proc until 49 or something. Man I hate that!

14 attack for 61 Pal
# Mar 03 2003 at 11:46 AM Rating: Default
Just a confirmation that this item yielded 14 attack to a level 61 Paladin. As far as stacking goes, it of course stacks with our yaulp, while the "grim aura" effect of the goblin skull earring is overwritten by yaulp.

I advise this increased attack for us do-gooders because a little bit of attack when magnified by slay undead 3 means a greatly increased damage output against those of undead origin.

You're all wrong. It adds 10 raw attk, but the number you see is your modified attk, based on class, str, etc.
#Daggerwolf, Posted: Mar 03 2003 at 7:06 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) check it out, 10str. thats probably where your extra atk came from.

imo (and i really mean imo) 10 atk is absolutly overrated. players are a bit crazy when it comes to ac, atk or haste. i mean if you have 1000 atk... do you really think 10 points will change much? i dont. a 39 shadowknight can buff his atk by at least 30 points with his own spells - if 10 atk really mean this much that would make him kind of uber. so i think 10 atk is overrated. i have to admit that this belt is not bad at all though - nice stats, 2 hp regen and 10 atk are nice but dont think just the 10 atk will win a fight for you.

ok mr Thornkiss you are a bit silly imo, sure 10atk is not great, but worn atk stacks up to 250 as has been mentioned in this post and worn atk stacks with your self buffed atk as well so you get 15 items that all added 10 atk and your getting 150 worn attack and that is base so you won't see 150 atk, you'll see closer to 200 off that. and no this belt is not uber but when you start stacking effects like this then eventually you are going to see nice bonuses to your melee ability. by your logic why bother lvling to lvl 2 cuz it's not all that much better then lvl 1. and y would anyone waste their time leveling to 3 that isn't much better then 2... see where this is going?

It depends what class you are. Rogues for example collect ATK increases the way casters collect mana items. A plus mana item typically only gives a small amount extra but if you try to have as many slots have plus mana items as possible then it adds up. Similarly with attack bonuses like this one. For a warrior it might not be much, but for a rogue they will try to have as many ATK bonuses as they can on as many pieces as possible and it adds up.

Well, 10 atk is a very nice thing to have, but yea youre right - its not ALOT. Yes, your attack can be buffed up through str buffs and some self-cast spells if you can (im not sure if there are any atk spells that like a rogue could get), but the numbers can be a big difference in the "end game". The 10 atk difference between 1490 and 1500 atk is very big apparentely and numbers around there, i dont have that much yet so i dont know exactly. I love this belt, the stats, and the effect - and seeing the 10 more atk is nice to look at :) Im a rogue so the more atk i can get the better! Well, the belt is nice - no more should be said about the quality.
#Dearborn, Posted: Feb 10 2003 at 6:40 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Dumbass. Would you have prefered ZERO bonus then? People aren't using this belt for the Atk increase (you got that wrong as well). They use it for the AoB effect which adds both atk and gives you 2 hp regen.

Is 10 attack really that much? Obv better than none, but what sort of boost would a person get from this? I dont find the 2 regen to be a big deal at all, but am curious about the ATK.
RE: question

The effect of ATK is relatively small compared to the noisiness of the random number generator, which means that there isn't any conclusive parse data (at least, not that I've been able to find) that establishes the value of ATK and the general shape of the curve (for example, does 10 marginal points of ATK have a bigger impact at ATK 1000 or ATK 1400?). The best read I've found on the topic is http://forums.interealms.com/ranger/showthread.php?threadid=9616

With all those caveats aside... the most common rule of thumb is that 10ATK = 1% damage increase. And while there is a point of diminishing returns on ATK that is dependent on the mob, any mob where your ATK is "soft-capped" is a mob that you wouldn't be wasting your time killing in the first place. And this is why ATK rules: as you get to be around level 60, it is relatively easy to hit the (soft) AC and (hard) stat caps - but more ATK keeps letting you do more damage.

AoB as permanent effect stacking.
# Nov 21 2002 at 12:18 PM Rating: Decent

If Aura of Battle is a permanent effect, it stacks with everything. I mean EVERYTHING.

There's only one exception alleged that I am aware of: some say there is a hard cap on how much regen and atk you can get from items. Something along the lines of +300 atk, +30 regen. Most players will never get near it.
RE: AoB as permanent effect stacking.
# Jan 03 2003 at 2:11 AM Rating: Decent
There is a hard cap of 30hp/tick on worn regen.

There is a "soft" cap of 250 on +atk, but no hard cap known. The 250 number doesn't actually affect worn +atk, but instead the atk bonus of the Avatar buff procced from Sleeper's Tomb weapons. Gonna use a little addition to illustrate.

1-150 +atk = everything is normal
151+ +atk = you get less than 100+atk from eff:Avatar on your weapons. You only get enough to bring you up to +250 total.

Avatar (and all variations thereof) cast on you by a shaman is unaffected by this cap, and will always add the full +atk ammount.

Hope everyone could follow. Anyhow, all this is extremely unlikely to impact more than 1% of any server.

there are 2 kinds of aura of battle in game. the effect on this belt is worn, so it gives no buff icon, so it is stackable with everything.there are other items with aura of battle click,so it will give a buff icon,(inspect, it will show up as "triggered",i think there is a pally/sk shield somewhere with it),in this case, aura of battle might give some stackability problems ( but i think only with other aura of battle click items).

I know that it does not stack with the Ranger spell Strength of Nature, so I suspect it may have stacking issues with other ATK buffs.

For a Rogue, this belt is up there. STR and DEX are a Rogue's bread and butter, and 10 of each rocks. AC isn't as important to me, caues I evade a lot. And how can you beat ATK Bonuses and Regens? I'll pay the cash.

Unfortunately, the Grim Aura effect from the Shrunken Goblin Earring has stacking issues with alot of other attack buffs while the belts Aura of Battle worn effect has no stacking issues that I know of.

Like other people have mentioned, after you have capped your str/dex/etc buffs to the max, the only other way to raise your attack rating is to either use attack buffs or effects off of items such as this one.

I for one, don't think this belt 'suck's horribly' and plan on getting one in the near future.

Yes, 6ac might be a little weak but when coupled with the awesome permanent effect, it really doesn't matter.

Keep in mind that permanent effects like these stack with EVERYTHING, even the castable form of the spell. Take the fungal tunic for example, permanent regen and you can also have the spell form cast on you for double the effect.

Items like this are rare and very very useful, 2pt extra regen and ATK as well as the stats make this item extremely industrious. Anyone who claims this item as being "junk" is undoubtedly ignorant.

Can you just click it from inventory, or can you just equip it click on the spell and remove it?

I have a Paladin on Rallos Zek, and I probably wouldnt want to wear this, as it doesnt have too much AC and its not no drop, however if I could just buff with it and put it away then it would be great.

It isn't just the regen(which as far as i know stacks with every other regen) it's also the + to attack, which is really important to the tanks on those luclin mobs with the 5000AC...don't think this paticular item is worth 40k, myself, but i don't need any of the stuff on it...

I had one (bought for 30k) and sold it when I was 59. I regret it entirely and am still seeking one again. The price when I do see one is generally in the 35-40k range and I feel it is worth every cp of that.

AoB is one of the very few effects that actually does something for a damage dealer and any source is a good source, regardless of rather weak stats in other areas.

I got this on my level 9 rogue (borrowin it from my main) but this is a nice belt when you already are using a CoF for haste which I am. I have found this 2 hp regen comes in handy many times in fights whether you think it does or doesnt it helps keep you alive a lil longer than you normally would, specially while buffed with Chloro+Fungi thats a 29 hp regen standing on a halfling which I quite like =).

Ive done enough ranting and got a lil off subject excuse me but I dont like people talkin bad about awsome items

I fully agree with the person who said Rangers with their epics in particular should kill for this item. Any form of regen is only a good thing and the increased attack is always welcome. my only (small) gripe is that it has a low ac. I'm moving this to one of my top 3 items to aquire someday.

Aura of Battle
# Jun 13 2001 at 2:17 AM Rating: Default
Just to be clear, Aura of Battle is +2regen all the time (standing or sitting) and +21ATK. This is not a trivial change in attack, and the regen is always great to have. More AC on this would be nice, but rangers in particular should kill for this - especially once they have their epics.

Get a clue if you think this is lame, or better yet, just don't roll on it when we both have the chance - I'll take it!
heh
# May 27 2001 at 5:35 PM Rating: Default
The effect is still very useful, as are the stats. If you're a ranger/rogue, or a monk with a CoF, you're already going to reach the haste cap, so an item like an rbb in your belt slot is a waste.

The stats on this are BETTER than the RBB (if you have a higher haste item), due to the 30 hp. 30 hp > 10 stamina. You may look at it as just 30 hp, but every little bit of HP helps. I *love* this belt, I already have my epics, and ditched my RBB and replaced it with this item; couldn't be happier.

Actually monks/rogues/bards get 4hp/sta at 60.

HPs are still better just because you can only have 255 sta though.

me ran accross this item while searhing for a diffenrt item i saw in game.
not only is its stats great, it fits my name very well ;-)

Im not much for buying such great items me would rather earn myself much more rewarding that way.
need to get a bit more info on this creature and see if me can have my guild help raid it, be the best way for me to obtain.

although if me see someone selling this for a reasonable cheap price me be right on top of it!

#Anonymous, Posted: May 17 2001 at 7:27 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) First off, what's this got to do with the belt..
#Anonymous, Posted: May 07 2001 at 6:06 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This is what you get for a melee class after you grab that cloak of flames or whatever better that's non planar! Look at the dex +10 that's wicked, once you get the new low delay weapons this, the cloak of flames, you'll never stop hitting for +150-200 with da strength bonuses and attack bonuses you'll have by then.

Effect:Triggered ??
# Feb 06 2001 at 1:18 PM Rating: Default
I got that belt recently on a guild raid. Seems to be quite nice but the lacking Haste hurts. Concerning the effect: I dont think its triggered. The attack bonus takes place as soon as equipped and you can click on it all day long and nothing happens...probably a continous effect or Verant needs to make it work properly first.
No idea what the effect does besides attack though. Aura of battle sounds like haste and other nice boni like attack and sta regen ...It isnt a Bard song by chance?
finally verant does something right...
# Jan 03 2001 at 2:36 PM Rating: Default
dont you ppl see? for all us ppl who want this belt, this is the perfect set up. all the uber guilds will wanna make this turtle one of their regular kills for a while, since the other stuff he drops, like the shield thing, is pretty good. when they all start killing him and getting this belt, which they think is a piece of crap, well start to see a lot more of it on the market...and ya never know, maybe it wont go for much since it isnt worth much to them anyway. =)

Don't bet on it. I hate price gougers more than anything but if I have to put down a level 60 mob for anything you are paying to get it.

These stats are not suprising to me, since the mob it drops off of, lodizal, is lvl 60 according to this website.
wow
# Dec 13 2000 at 3:45 PM Rating: Default
wow, imo this is an incredible item for any of the classes that can use it. diecent ac, and great strength and dex boosts. not to mention the added hp, and the clickable effect which adds to attack and regen like the other post said, making this a very good item that will cost a pretty penny if you can find someone selling it that is. lodizal drops some other nice items from what iv seen as well so happy hunting )

as far as i can tell aura of battle is a HP/ sta regen with some attack boost... no haste on this belt at all hp per tick went to 6 hp per tick while sitting. great belt as to the person who posted this is a crappy belt well it not be a runed bolster belt or runedbranded girdle but why dont u find me a belt other than those that blows this away idget boy stop yer whining
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 04 2001 at 5:29 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Compared to the shield???
RE: Aura of Battle?
# Mar 03 2001 at 7:33 AM Rating: Default
The shield is so kickass because it can be worn on the back slot. In that slot the AC is unrivalled by ANYTHING. I tend to agree that this belt is great, specially for rogues (i am one.. im sure its great for others too.. but it just strikes me as a great rogue item.. those with their epics or CoF, at least), but yes, most people prefer the shield by far. Read up on the shields stats before posting that it ISNT better than this... yeesh

I would hardly call this junk. If you are a maxed out 60th whatever, then, yes, this item does not meet your needs. You already have better. Fine. But for those of us dreaming of the gear you probably wear, we would gladly accept this 'junk'. I'm glad to see quality items that aren't necessarily uber-items.

Yea, I got 255 str with buff, the AC on the belt is crap, blah blah blah.

Jez, be consistance. If someone is so uber, 255 str and stuff, he would also got 1100 AC. How much more AC you want when you are at AC cap? Using Cof. And what kinda belt you wanna use? Name some belt that is so uber that will make this belt look like junk to support your comment will ye? This belt is a great item, its no where in "junk standard".

I was just awarded this item from my guild.
I think I'm going to be giving it back, hopefully to a rogue who can use it better than I.

In order to use this item I need to give up my FBSS, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me because the Aura of Battle is not a Haste buff =(. Maybe someday I'll have an eyepatch or a CoF, but until then I still need to use my FBSS.

Besides, I really don't need +10 dex, and 30hps is nothing when fighting dragons and gods that hit for over 300+.

I think Verant should have made this a monk item. I'm sure they would have loved to be able to use this.
