I must say I don't know the quest that used to drop this but if you complete the 3rd coldain prayer shawl quest you get something very comparable, AC3 +3int +3wis +30mana and +3vs cold and magic I think. And the coldain quest is not very difficult to be honest. Hardest part is the getting the four snow griffin eggs. Just remember to kill every snow bunny you can find to get the griffins to spawn

Since the time PoP came out, there are other niftier range items that are easy to get.

For example the beginners' magic manual, ac 7 wis/int 6, hp/mana 15, requires only the planar travelers manual and hobgoblin surprise, which you can buy in the bazaar for under 200 p (baking skill item)

You are right, Zookie, but what Hilbur means is that as a bonus to the 3rd prayer shawl you get the Seal of Thoridain, which has the stats Hilbur describes. And the seal is almost as good, or in some aspects better, as a range item for casters as this Frozen Orb. Morale of the story : dont pay insane amounts of money on this item, rather do the shawl quests. :)

I done this quest 18 times when vellios came out was easy and gave good ex you had to stand in a loc and only the name would spawn besides his Harm touch he was a wimp I charmed anamals to tank him and take the harm touch and the rest was easy now you can stand in the same spot but you have all **** oricle spawn. makeing this quest hard as **** with out a full party sux it was a fun quest to solo for a blue bubble and a chance of him droping nice loot

We got 2 orbs in 3 spawns =p
How we did it
# Jun 20 2001 at 11:48 AM Rating: Good
We had five Ry'gorr Invasion Plans (dropped off Ry'gorr Messenger). You turn on in to the Coldain lookout, and 6 orcs spawn (not sure on loc) right in front of the coldain fort that is near the main orc fort. There are 2 oracles, 3 invaders, and Scabrough, i believe. We had me (53 druid), a 59 chanter, 56 rogue, and 53 ranger, and it was VERY easy. The chanter AE mezzed them all, then we picked out Scarborow, killed him very easily, even w/ the chanter taking the HT. You dont need to kill the other orcs, they run to the coldain and fight them. Even if they win their fight, they despawn. We triggered their spawn 5 times, 2 orbs.
Orb is a total waste of your time
# May 09 2001 at 5:47 AM Rating: Good
Do the coldain prayer Shawl quest in Thurg and get yourself the Seal of Thorgidain, this item is just slightly better than the orb.
+3WIS/INT +30MANA (ORb is 10 better) +3Magic/Cold
You loose 10 mana but gain resistances, beats having to sit and wait for **** to pop and having to mess with all the other headaches involving this item, If its a choice of questing or camping id rather quest it in a heartbeat.
BTW you need to be a master baker to get this item, that is easy tho buy 200 batwings (FP wiz guild) 200 fish (FP docks) and a spit, (1wing +1fish =1fishroll) Trivial at 130, when you get to 122 your ready to do the quest.
Easy as pie (and Ulthork Meat pie that it)

You can no longer have a friend or pet stand inbetween the trees to get only scarbrow to spawn. Now, all of his cronies spawn so bring friends to help.

First you get the invasion plans off the messenger who runs between the warden prison camp and the rygorr fort (believe he spawns at the prison camp)

Then you go to the dwarf camp near the rygor fort, and you have a pet or a person stand right inbetween those 2 trees very close together which are near the camp. Now someone else gives the invasion plans to the coldain lookout here.

The reason you have someone, or a pet, stand between the trees is cause scarbrow spawns there and if no one is there he summons some oracles or they also spawn or something. The person or pet hanging there should take the harm touch from him.

He then drops the frozen orb. Since the nerf though, it might take as many as 3 - 4 times until you get one off him. Some people have done it up to 7 without getting any orb.
So best thing for you to do is try to get as many of the messenger plans as you can ( I don't think they were lore were they?) then do several at once with friends.

Watch prices for the orb go up big time! I am glad i picked up 5 right before the patch :)

Then come back and lie to our faces and deny it. I truely don't see how they live with themselves constantly lieing.

You give verant too much credit ; )

They simply don't really test or balance anything so they don't see how it works in the game until players are selling these constantly for 5 k. Then they notice it or more likely a player petitions it or something so it gets nerfed.

Ahahaa, government agents.. ahaha. THEY ARE THERE I TELL YOU!

Never had a range item without range. Is it possible to toss this? Hate to lose something like this accidentally. Moreover, let's say you have this in range slot and throwing daggers in your ammo slot; can the daggers be thrown?
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 16 2001 at 1:16 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) would you have throwing daggers in range slot as CLR DRU SHM NEC WIZ MAG ENC? :) just a thought :)

I got one of these tonight before the patch and i was told i could sell it for 15kp in east commons on seventh hammer. Is this a high price cause it's a new item or is it here to stay ?? I would not part with it cause it replaced my small wisdome diety but just curious can this price be realistic ?

I traded A dark ember for one of these and let me just say this. The Ember is worth maybe 8 - 10kpp. A medicine totem is worth 6 - 8kpp with 5ac and 5wis and it is a range slot item. If you are a lvl 50 player the Orb is equal to 7wis or 7int and can be placed in the range slot. At lvl 35 it is almost equal to 9 wis is that worth 15kpp? close maybe. 10 certainly. I suggest holding on to that prize.

On the surface, I'd say it wasn't a good trade. Depends on your current equipment and needs, however. If you are at 200 wis and looking for extra mana, then it wouldn't be too bad. From what I've seen, Dark Ember is a fairly rare drop. Not saying the orb is easier to get, but the circumstances more in your favor, can be controlled, if you will. But as I said, it all depends on what you need. Druids have a fairly limited selection of range items =(

This is a great item
# Jan 03 2001 at 6:46 PM Rating: Decent
This item is awesome for Druids and Shaman.

The Medicine Totem gives roughly 50 mana to a level 50+ character assuming your wisdom is not already above 200.

This item gives you roughly 70 mana and is much better overall, because most people 50+ level already have 200 wisdom. So either way this is better.

You give up 3 ac on the deal, but it is sweet. Value on this is definately 10k+
range? sweet mother

I believe that Scarbrow is a 50+ Ry`Gorr shadow knight, who is a triggered spawn. He is a boss guy in one of the Coldain ring quests in the Eastern Wastes. Look around on the site here for the Coldain ring quests in the Eastern Wastes. If I remember correctly, when you trigger this guy, he has a handful of other high level Ry`Gorr orcs with him.

I had a full group do this roughly lv 42 to 48. If you kill him fast enough and get right on him the oracles don't spawn with him to help out. Did it 4 times till we ran out of invasion plans and only scarbrow spawned every time.

Nice, may be better ranged item than medicine totem for druids. Equivalent to 7 wis, but if wis already maxed out, you get 40 mana. Trading from the 5ac of a medicine totem to the 2 ac for this is only draw back.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 01 2001 at 2:18 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) how do you figure this is 7 wis? 1 wis is not equal to 10 mana.
RE: What? Nerds here?
# Jan 05 2001 at 10:35 PM Rating: Excellent

the above mana conversion equasion is right; here is perhaps a simpler way to figure it.

Each point of INT or WIS = lvl * .2

So at lvl 50, each extra point of Int is (50*.2) = 10 mana.

So conversly, 40 mana to a lvl 50 is worth 4 Int.


(At lvl 1, however, where each point of Int is (1*.2) = .2 mana, or 1 mana for every 5 points of Int, the extra 40 mana would equate to an extra 200 Int ~ which it is always better to start out with +Mana stuff at first, then switch to +int stuff later.)

Hows that for Nerdom? Math AND Video games, all rolled into one
RE: What? Nerds here?
# Feb 07 2001 at 12:23 PM Rating: Default
Let me tell you just my thought: (PS im 51 druid) and 1 point wisdom gives me more than 10 mana ... But Yes this is a Nice item gives extra mana past wisdom and since im at 200 where wisdom/mana peak, thats a good thing..I see commons for:
Orb Ac2 +3Wis & Int +40 Mana ....about 6-7K
Dark Ember 13/32 +2Str +5Wis +7fire +20Hps & MANA
... Been offered 15K not enough for the Number buffs it has... I have also camped Both items and as rare a drop as ORB is, the Guy who drops the Hammer is at least that rare a spawn and the Hammer is his Very Rare drop ! So no hammers worth least 3 times the orb ... another Note in wolf form with str I have hit for 41damage +14dd from Hammers Bure Effect , not bad for a druid !~
mana to wis/int conversion
# Jan 01 2001 at 3:53 PM Rating: Good
take the amount of mana an item gives you and multiply that by 5. Then, take the number you get from that and divide it by your level. That is the amount of int/wis that you would normally need to get that amount of mana.

so, the equation is: mana = level * (int or wis) / 5. or int or wis = mana * 5 / level.
