OK, having read this entire page, lemee condensse it for you, so you dont waste your time like I did. This item has 41%haste. Lord Yelinak is incredibly hard to kill, you need 50 people all level 60 or so (give or take, of course). This means that you can go to Western Wastes and get a different Talisman for turn in for the ST key with much less effort. Because this item has haste at 41%, it is worth keeping. The specific stats on this item(plus mana, haste, wis/int) make it most useful to a hybrid class. Paladins and Shadowknights would benefit most from this. A ranger would also benefit from this, as he or she could dump his or her epic for a better weapon and use this for haste. Since only someone in a massive, powerful guild could possibly have any chance of getting this, and massive, powerful guilds have their own special loot rules, if you don't happen to be in a massive, powerful guild, dont even bother dreaming of this, or posting, its a waste of time. You want it. I want it. Everyone could use it. Don't waste your breath telling us you want it, go level your char to 60+ and join a massive, powerful guild.

can you say massive, powerful guild ONE MORE TIME.

It doesnt take a massive, powerful guild. As with almost all mobs in EQ, some sound tactics and a good game plan combined with some dedicated high level players can do this mob with ease.. maybe 18 lvl 65s with a good MA and a decent heal rotation can take Yeli out.

Id also use the neck piece as a haste item unless i got the head and id turn it in for the gloves which also have haste, since im a warrior.

I have been on 3 raids so far and have done so with the above mentioned numbers.

** ohh forgot to mention...they were all non-guild raids.

RE: .
# Mar 16 2004 at 11:39 PM Rating: Default
its for just that reason actually that those classes (rogue, ranger, beast, and now zerker) are actually placed near last in line to get 41% items to replace that epic. Namely, they're seen as having "easy to obtain" 41% hastes already, and have to wait for everyone else to loot one, before they can replace their epic haste.

sucks, but its true.

Many things have happened since last I posted about this item and now I have actually participated in Yelinak killings, so I speak from experience. By the time your guild is able to kill Yelinak, they will probably have been acquiring ST keys for quite some time. Unless your server is one of the lucky few that has not had the Sleeper awakened, your guild will get ST keys much faster than it gets primal. The bottleneck for getting primal into your guild will be the rate at which primal drops and the competition for it from other guilds, not the rate at which you can get ST keys. This being the case, the Yelinak talisman ends up being used as a piece of equipment, not for a key as I said it did earlier. Nobody will go without primal in your guild for lack of a key from a Yelinak talisman.

In almost any guild, this will go to melee first, then, eventually, to other classes that want it. However, you will probably be killing Yelinak for many months before a non-melee gets this unless you are on a point system. Even an "uber" guild doesn't get 40% haste items as fast as its members would like and this is quite a desirable item.

Regarding someone that said monks and rogues get 40% haste on their epics: This is true, BUT rogue epic haste is item haste (which does not stack with the talisman haste), and monk epic haste is song/spell haste (which stacks with talisman haste). Ranger epics also give 40% item haste by the way. So, monks (along with some other melee types) actually are on the "short list" for getting this item.

With regards to your haste summary, you are correct but you forget one thing:

When either monks OR rogues are hasted by the enchanter, their haste is maxed so this item does not affect either one if both have epic haste. Both will be 100% hasted.

If you're killin yelinak and ******* over the haste on this item, well then somethings wrong. SoV is 68% haste, therefore 32% is the max that you need from an item, and if EVERY melee in your guild don't have Cowl or better haste by now, you're not killin yelinak. So this item should go to whoever needs the stats, not the haste, IMHO.

Less of course you're on Xev like me and it goes to a non ST key holder so the point is moot for us :P.

Btw, blows me away that dragons that are easier than him drop better loot. WTG verant/SoE.

Just a clarification since you are obviously not a monk.

Rogues and Rangers have epics that give item haste. Monks have an epic that gives a song haste which does stack with spell hastes, but not the haste portion (there is also ac and atk on monk epic song.)

I do have to agree on the loot thing tho. Yeli's loot sux overall.

Wow, very very incorrect info here. Monk epic haste does not stack with SoV, due to the attack portion of the buff. Even if monk epic haste was allowed to be in the buff window at the same time as SoV, the haste portion wouldn't stack... monk epic haste is considered SPELL haste.

With regards to this item.... this item should go to WHATEVER class needs a 41% haste upgrade... not any class in particular.

Monk epic is 41% haste
Ench haste is like 60x % up to 70% at lvl 62
Misc bard haste
Monk epic haste will not stack with any spell haste out there exept for bard special songs.
The icon will apear and you will get the 53 atk 12ac not sure on stats but the haste will not stack.
Haste item 41% Spell haste 70% 111% haste cap is 100 or 110 not sure heard somwhere that it's up to 110 at lvl 65 but dont quote me on this i am not sure.

You dont use this or any of the 5 talismans to open the door to Jaled, you need a totaly differant no drop key, the key requires a quest to complete which requires zlandicars heart and something off a rare or uncommon cant remember which mob in DN (some rat), sub quest gives a crappy one handed blunt with bone melt and jaled key.

If you get to this point in the game, you aren't using that necklace for anything but a ST key... if you kill Yelinak with the intention of using his Talisman because it has haste on it... perhaps your guild should reconsider it's motives, and realize the other mobs with uber drops that are as easy as or easier than Yelinak.

The only way somebody is going to keep this as a neck item rather than a keyring item:
1) absolutely everybody in the guild has a Tomb key and they are going around for second. (yay!)
2) person designated this item for turn-in already has another first brood talisman (hmm)
3) player goes rengade and does not turn it in as ordered for a key (mine, mine, all mine!)

I have this talisman and won't like giving it up BUT I will greatly appreciate the Key.
The sooner the better, too.

PPL need to catch a clue when they read about uber items. "This should go to Warrior" posts are rediculous when you are talking about an item that is used for quests, particularly when it is Sleepers Tomb Key. Catch a clue, it is going to go to whoever NEEDS it in the guild that takes Yel down. If they are taking Yelinak down, most likely it is because they want the keys. You say, "yeah right." Well considering that since Luclin came out there are plenty of UBER drops that are NOT used in quests, I say you will never see anyone wearing this "just because it's awesome."

#Nexcat, Posted: May 28 2002 at 5:43 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Not true. Other weak classes, like int casters, well, without a pet, we're as useful as a ctton ball to chop down a tree. But thats not the point. We too could use haste, cause, we suck at practically every attack skill exept piercing and 1hb (For some 2hb) and if we could get our little constant spell-casting hands (or necks or pants or ears or etc.) on a Haste Item, we could practically solo without a pet! Dont believe me? Go find a NO-DROP Haste item, and transfer it to a int caster with a cheap item like a Cracked staff or a Worn Great Staff and start whacking MoB's. Then, take off the haste item and look at the damage now. See the dffrence? Hope you do. And once again, Warriors and monks and rangers and Etc. arent the only 1's that need haste. Plus, what are you warriors supposed to do with mana and wis & int?

Yes i noticed i only had time to miss 3 times before i died instead of 5... i'm a wizard and had a 50/43 (yes 50dmg 43dly) shovel as well as a 40% robe... I sold the robe and only wish i could give my shovel to the SK with MAXED 2hb i hit for 80 on a lucky hit and usually don't hit period....

If you honestly beleive that casters can solo with haste and a cracked staff i have a hard time beleiving you even know who yelinak is, And if you think this talisman would be awarded to a caster so they can melee too instead of *gasp* medding when they're not casting a spell... well... i hear diablo 2 is nice?

Not the best, and it wouldn't goto someone who was gonna use it as a neck item. It would goto someone who still needs a ST key. There are much better necks. Tali of first brood (not used in st key quest ) 15ac 4 all stats 5 all resists
i know you lose some stats and resists but its minimal, haste is very common. Windraiders belt 35ac 15 sv all i believe and haste effect

Would have to totally agree there. And has anybody noticed this (i mean it was made blantantly obvious) that alot of the quested velious stuff is: you get one item, you either use it or you turn it back in to get another item. So whoever wins the roll for this lil treasure of a necklace, it's to the winners discresion to what they do with it.

1) If you get this item, it will be at a very high level with the cooperation of a large number of very high level people in your guild.

2) Your guild will probably not award this item to you unless you are level 60 AND one of the classes they deem necessary for Sleeper's Tomb. For example, if a level 60 cleric and a level 60 warrior have been awarded this item from previous Yelinak slayings, a level 60 enchanter might get the next one.

3) You will be expected to turn this in for the key to the Sleeper's Tomb so your guild can get some of the loot from there. Of course, most of the good stuff is no-drop. You might also get to keep this as a neck item until a sufficient number of your guildmates have it to make a Sleeper's Tomb raid possible when they turn it in for the key.

4) If your guild kills Yelinak every single time he spawns for a year, you MIGHT get a second one to wear around your neck.

5) To the person who talked about monks not getting this item because their epic has a haste effect: Monks are the only class whose epic haste stacks with item haste (if I remember correctly), so epic haste does not rule them out.

Very simply,
Every last one of the post failed to mention the warrior, who is supposed to be THE MASTER of melee, not only does a warrior get shafted out of all the good melee wpns (aka look at the paladin only sword) he gets shafted when it comes to items. 40% haste or whatever it is would make it so that a warrior can lay the smack down like he is supposed to be able too.
Casters should be last in line for this item for the simple fact with enough patience they can get a similaar item, minus the stats they dont really need and that the warrior and other melee classes dont really want over an item such as this.

Actually, Warriors are the masters of AC...with the exception of some PoM drops, warrior armor is the BEST when it comes to AC. As to the masters of melee, that'd be monks...if you've ever seen a monk with epic haste, you'd know what I'm talking about. I'll agree, warriors need to hit fast enough to keep the mob from aggro'ing the weaker characters, but they aren't designed to be buzzsaws in melee.

RE: hey )
# Jun 03 2001 at 4:09 AM Rating: Good
When ye be in a highlevel guild that can actually take down Yelinak, threre is VERY little chance that there would ever be a lotto on any drops. So plz don't assume that any of ye would be able to random for it. Items like this is awarded to a worthy character. And...to think that ye would ever be in a pickup grp that could kill Yelinak is even more ridiculous. Most guilds that can take this dragon, will have his spawntime timed and even precamp him (or any other rare spawn)before any major patches (I know that we try to :-). This means that no pickup group would ever be able to gather enough ppl to even start buffing up in preparation to take him down before one of the servers uber guilds have already killed him.
Conclusion: If ye be not in an uber guild...
forget it! It would most likely NEVER happen for thee.

Officers in most highend guilds, defines a worthy person of a drop, by looking at stats on the drop to see what classes would benefit the most from it. Here the conclusion would be (as rightfully stated above) hybrids. Then they look at what other drops the classes in question can achieve on the specific slot (neck here) (This is also why casters art left out here. Go look it up!).
Being a ranger I would love to say that as a hybrid I would be one of the first in line for this. Sadly (and it does make sense so I truely accept this) I am not. This due to, that our epic (which all rangers at this point should either have completed or at least be VERY close to complete) have a permanent 40% haste effect. This rules all rangers out (and same argument goes for the monks if the wis, int or mana - arguemnt didn't apply).
This leaves us with 2 classes. SK and pallys. Truth be told. I do recall what the effect is on either of their epics, so if any of 'em gets haste, we would basicly be down to one class in my guild.
And with all that said... This is only if we consider the piece as a permanent wearable one and not for the keyquest. Then all would sooner or later get one in guild. Most likely me later since I am one of the youngest in the guild. All lvl. All the 60's first, then the 59's and so forth.

when i got this item i first turned it in to get my sleepers key then my guild went back to yeli to get the talismans again. i replace my CoF haste with this, this is faster, and got a better cloak. this talisman is awesome and it broke my heart the first time i had to turn it in. i have had guildmates beg me to MQ for the key but i refused because this is just too UBER to give up twice. 8) if you arent going to sleepers any time soon hang onto this for dear life becase it is insane for all classes.

2 words for you

DUMB and ***
put em together and what do we get? someone who doesnt know wtf he is talking about. First off Yelinak IS NO CAKE WALK. There is no way in **** you would ever get 2 tali's off of him. Secondly you CANNOT MULTI THE ST KEY. It takes 1 tali to get a ST key. You walk up to the shade, hand it the tali and u get ur st key :)

Guys, unless you are at some yelinak pickup raid, there won't be any rolling on any of yelinaks l3wt.
#Anonymous, Posted: May 04 2001 at 3:14 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) There's a reason why people say any item with haste is for melee and not casters, the reason is the haste would be totally useless to a caster and means the world to a melee. Sure there are items such as this that have awesome stats but even if it has haste give us a break there are other items to. Zlandicar's talisman has same stats minus the haste.
#Anonymous, Posted: May 23 2001 at 9:42 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I understand need before greed rule and both of you have made good agruements, but if it is an item you can use and is better then what you have (not to mention nodrop means you can sell it or use it to twink,where is the greed in that) you should be aloud to roll for it. It is all/all for a reason. Plus why the **** is wanting an item to improve your char greed? I am sorry your logic makes no sense. Verant made items that every one can roll on. Whats the problem? I play both mellee and caster char's and for either I would want this item. haste is no reason to ***** other players out of a nice item. So why don't you get a clue.

well I agree that it is for meleers however the resistances help the druid who is immediately blasted by every single last caster the second they cast a dd dot or heal

Kin Lor Necklace is a better ruid necklace. #1, 8wis. #2, gives a LOT of resists which is very handy for when being blasted (soloing perhaps...)since druids have little HP/AC, and #3 because it is a LOT easier to get :) off 45 mobs, Allakazam says, which is basically everything before the pool room. But undoubtedly very rare. But not as rare as Yel's, since just about everyone on the raid killing him will want it.
You want a 1:50 chance to get this, or a 1:6 for a better wis necklace, even if it is only one wis more. Why go through all the trouble to get that, when tanks could use it more anyway? ie, the haste on the neck? WOOT my SK will die for this =)

no the kin lore neck may give one more wis and 5 more mana, however yelinak makes up for that by even better resistances 7 on everything as to kin lore has 5 fire and 3 everything else then it's got the 7 strength charisma agility and stamina and it has the 40 hp :)

This is the best Druid neck peice out there. Look at the wis 7. The most out there for the neck slot that I know of. And 8 ac? wow Only $ peice have more. 7 cha for charming. str, agl, sta is always nice for any class. And the resists, WOW! All that and mana and hp to boot! Only thing we can't use is the int, and maybee the haste. Any class would be lucky to get this. Caster's like Druids should get to roll for this too, not just melee. This is the best peice out there for them too.

QUEST: Key to Sleepers Tomb
# Jan 30 2001 at 8:11 PM Rating: Default
Jaled Dar's Shade wishes you to wake the Sleeper, who is encased within his tomb. He needs the Talismen from 1 of 5 dragons of the first brood in order to open the door.

These Dragons are Lord Yelinak, Sontalak, Lendiniara, Klandicar and Zlandicar.

I have spent months gaining faction with dragons. All I have to say is this: There better be an item similar to this that I can either:

a) get off the boss in Kael
b) get from a quest FROM Yelinak
c) get from quests in WW or ToV

or I'm gonna whine about it for a long time ;)
RE: Better be...BUT
# Jan 30 2001 at 8:03 PM Rating: Default
Zlandicar in Necropolis drops a Similar Talisman just without the Haste. He's a rogue dragon so not on Claws/Yelinak faction. Problem is if you ever plan on going to Sleeper's Tomb you need to get one of these talisman's (5 possible Talisman's but you only need 1 to get the key) and then give the Talisman to Jaled Dar's Shade in Necropolis.

Zlandicar's Talisman is called First Brood Talisman if you want to find it's stats. Not sure if it was ever posted here, but EQlizer gameznet.com/eq had it posted.

Only other of the 5 dragons I remember the name of that has a quest Talisman is Klandicar in West Wastes and believe he actually gives a quest to Obtain his.

Why not let those of us who actually HAVE a Sleeper's key say these things instead of looking foolish?"

Now Mr anon dumbass you will notice that the poster said;

Thus meaning you do only need 1 Talismen, maybe you should learn to read and maybe even think before you open YOUR mouth and spit useless crap.

I would kill for my chanter to have this.
Yeah yeah, flame on "but but.. haste"
Blah, whatever. It gives +7 to the stats I use (as it does to any other class) plus has some hps I could use, and a decent ammount of mana.
Don't forget the ac that caster's are lacking...
We aren't supposed to get hit a lot, but chanter's tend to agro quite a bit, and god, it hurts.

Actually the classes that would get the most benefit from this would be paladins and shadow knights. Look at the stats on it that help monks:

8 ac 7 str 7 sta 7 agi 7 dex 40 hp all the resists and the haste. But paladins get all the stuff monks get plus 40 mana and 7 wis.

Same with shadow knights except int instead of wisdom.
RE: Monks...*mumble mumble*
# Jan 30 2001 at 2:54 AM Rating: Decent
I don't see why it would be most benificial to monks. If you ask me hybrids would get more benefit out of it with the +40 mana and +7 int/wis being of no use to monks or other pure melee characters at all.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 30 2001 at 7:55 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) this item benefits all melee classes. But i would say SK's and Pallys the most due to the int wis cha bonuses.

# Jan 30 2001 at 3:47 PM Rating: Decent
1st off I would like to clarify that on a drop like this every class would roll unless a caster had something with certain stats better and they didnt need it and therefore pass. As fot the monk thing I understand what they are saying because I have a 53 monk and the reason is not just the haste or just ac or just low wt or just stats. It's all of them because our stats on items suck compared to other classes and 8 ac is huge on a neck for us. And the haste... well monks love haste more then anyone. Not that we need it any more then a rogue or something, but we just love having it more. We are defined by our melee damage ability, therefore haste makes us do our job better. While if a paly or SK had haste they wouldn't their main job any better because their main job is not melee damage. If it was they would have duel wield. Oh and the low wt is just an added bonus.
RE: Monks...*mumble mumble*
# Jan 30 2001 at 4:00 AM Rating: Excellent
I see that as soon as an item comes out that is a nice melee type item (ie str ac and haste etc) that is low weight monks lay claim more than others to it - sure all these MAKE it **** nice for a monk - but pick a single stat on here that any other melee class wouldnt find **** nice about it? *monks - back in line with the rest of the melee*

# Jan 30 2001 at 7:33 AM Rating: Default
Wow what a great item to have. I would definitely agree that this is somewhat wasted on a monk and that a paladin or shadowknight would benefit from this items stats far more, however, any melee class should be in on the lotto.

The thing im wondering is, what is the haste% on this unbelievable item? Are we talkin 20-30%? Or is this one of those unstackable low haste items that you can hardly tell the difference with.

And btw..for the guy who suggests "farming" this item...it's NO DROP...:)

RE: Wow

Everyone keeps saying it would benefit a Paladin or Shadow Knight far more. What about Rangers? Care to explain how it benefits a Paladin or Shadow Knight more than a Ranger? It was even said this favors damage-dealers more than others, and I agree, and Rangers ARE damage-dealers.

Who benefits from haste more? A dual-wielding Ranger using 2 fast, damaging weapons or a Paladin using a moderate speed, damaging 1-handed weapon or a slow, powerful 2-hander? The answer is clear. This has excellent AC for a neckpiece, and Rangers need all the AC they can get. This has haste, which is far more effectively utilized on a dual-wielding fighter than a fighter using a single 1-handed weapon or a 2-handed weapon. That's a fact. The stats are nice for anyone, with the exception of the wisdom and mana, which are ESSENTIAL to a Ranger's effectiveness in a group (at least one who is good at playing their class). Rangers rely on their mana (in my opinion, and in my personal playing style) far more than Shadow Knights or Paladins do.

However, I still think this item is primarily for all MELEE CLASSES. True, it has caster's stats but casters do NOT get the full range of power from this item. It would be a waste on a caster who could achieve those SAME stats, or close to it, through FAR more common items. Don't be greedy, casters.
RE: Wow
# Apr 20 2001 at 10:12 PM Rating: Default
I agree that this neck is very good for meleers but think about this as a druid who wouldn't love the ac I mean even if it is only 8 that is still really nice and all the resistances and wisdom buffs being as how almost every druid I know is agroed on by that caster the second he/she hits their heal hotkey :(
RE: Wow
# Jan 31 2001 at 4:12 AM Rating: Default
Ok. Think about it? how many people would it take to kill this dragon hmm? I think he ment camp (in shifts perhaps) and get one for everyopne trying to kill it! Or maybe he was just kidding. Farming dosn't always mean camp an Item and then sell it? it simply means camping an item to get for certain people. be it that a person is buying or its for a person in a guild.
