Have not dropped for years.

Obtained via gold ticket in the Shadowhaven Casino.

Gold tickets are available from the loyalty points merchant in Plane of Knowledge if you don't want to go the platinum sink method in Shadowhaven.

I suggest reading the threads on the casino/gold tickets before going that route. Spoiler: there is a set of top-level rewards that you win, the best way to get a specific drop is to have the others in your inventory ahead of time.

Anyone have an approximate idea of a person's chances of winning the beads in the casino, as in about how much plat you would have to spend to get a decent shot at these? I've not tried the casino yet, but would be willing to spend 100K there if I thought that would give me a 50/50 chance of winning this item.

Honestly, your odds of getting anything useful out of the casino suck pretty bad. I spent about 130K in the casino and got a bunch of illusion posions, fireworks, 3 resist gems, some stat food, a couple Deluxe Sewing Kits, and 'snakefingers' ()

I really wanted either the glowing drum or the Holgresh Elder Beads. I got neither.

One of my friends spent (literally) Millions of plat in the casino and got about the same as I did. he did get the beer goggles though. But he never got anything good.

Another friend of mine spent about 10k and got a golden ticket (which equates to a chance at actually getting the beads). He sold the ticket instead of turning it in to get his item.

I guess the point is that you can spend A LOT of plat or very little... though statistically if you spend a lot your odds are better than if you spent a little. However, statistical odds don't make winners. My suggestion is figure out how much money you are willing to dump into the casino and go and dump it. If you win, you win. If not, oh well. Walk away after your set amount is spent.

well, if you have a ticket your odds are like 1 in8 of getting beads. of course you can tweak it, most of the items that come from quest can be bought in bazaar, rubi bp,infuse items,mistwalker, and such so if u buy these items all the droppable prizes when u turn in ur golden ticket u got a 1 in 4 chance of getting any- beads,drums, guise. now if u already got a guise u can take that off the list, then theres the drums idk if u can get both colors, but if u cant once u win a drum u have a 100% chance of getting beads everytime. great for just farming like beads then reselling in bazaar. they sell for a ton.

Actually since the Glowing Drums are not "Lore" so you could end up with multiple drums including duplicate colors.

I might have missed it somewhere in here, but maybe someone can shed some clarity for me. I just basically want to know the functions of this eye. From what ive seen it acts as a life tap tool and something to do with WTD. What is a complete list of its functions which would explain its enormous price. Never played a class with the luxary of this particular spell/item and never looked very much into it either.

This is an excellent pulling tool for any new zone and/or any zone that pops random (and is therfore impossible to know).

Knowing those 2 mobs that double for 800 are just on the other side of the door out of view can be of great use at times, and carrying stacks of stalking probes gets old quick.

yes necros or sk's can life tap it, after it dies necros have a aa ability to Wake the dead WTD. and control a recently slain enemy as a pet. its just nice for necros to have, to top up on life in between fights and not have to worry about when the group pulls next if they have lich form up and there hp's are being drained away.

They eye of zomm is just a spell that creates an eye that the caster can see out of for 5 ticks. the eye is controlable during that time so it can be sent pretty much anywhere with out causing agro. Thats its only function and its self only.

The reason that it is so expensive is because it no longer drops. Instead of buying and carrying around stacks of stalking probes, you now have an unlimited supply of eyes.... from one item.

Their main function is to be used as a lifetap battery... or target practice for bored melee's as the controller of the eye tries to scout.
RE: Curious
# Nov 02 2004 at 10:53 PM Rating: Decent
These can also be used pretty well in LDoN to scout ahead. Many times on my mage I've heard the druid say 'Nope, no named on track' when I'm staring the named in the face with the Eye of Zomm. Maybe I've just had bad luck with lazy druids, but this baby comes in very handy.

Also, if you need to peek behind a door or around a corner, this can be a godsend.

First of all Druid Tracking is below par.
Second, cave walls and mountains tend to interfere with tracking range.

As a Ranger, I get the ability to track sort, and gives me a reasonable ability to determine the approx distance (in radius) of anything on my list, but as I am frequently called upon to "track for named" in LDoN adventures, I always have a hard time getting that named on track until we get at least 1/2 into the zone (@ 200 tracking).
Those druids are not lazy, they just have an inferior tracking, coupled with it's limitations. -Also, because Druids can't track sort, they usually have MILES of mob names to scan through, and it can sometimes take 2 or 3 min to read through them all (easy to miss a name in that mess) and by that time, you have moved across a zone, or mobs pathed, requiring to re-track the zone for an updated listing constantly. A mob within spitting distance can appear at the bottom of the list on Druid track.

This item, can also be used together with the , to have a gate effect back to the Overthere (summon the Eye, target it and then attack it for the proc). This effect is very awesome for any classes: melees can have a gate to OT (and can go to PoK quickly by the OT PoK stone); casters can now bind themselves at any loot camp, can then use the Eye+OT hammer to bank / sell.

HEB has just so many nice effects and thus it costs so much.... (drooling... :P )

Since the Casino was brought back... These are NOT no drop. The people that have won these within the past few hours have already put them up for sale on RN. I am not sure if you can receive some no drop ones from casino but the ones I have seen so far are definately not no drop! Downside to this: now there will be more available and unfortunately that can be economically depressing.... Good Luck to all

Won these last night at the casino with 2k my boyfriend gave me. I've been offered 300k for them so far. I thought about selling them, but I think now that I'm probably going to keep them. (atleast for a while... god even knows if they will bring the casino back)

I did do the summon eye + lifetap + wake the dead thing... it was pretty neat seeing this floating eyeball of death going around killing everything. If the beads were good for nothing else, they are good for this, atleast.

Wondering whether the Clay Bracelet (http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=824) couldn't be used for eye of Zomm, since it's clickable from inventory. Will do the testing very soon with a necro friend ...


*EDIT* : we finished the quest, it doesn't work. When necro tries to click it from inventory, it just does nothing. That's too bad... :/

# Mar 03 2003 at 10:01 AM Rating: Decent
Typically goes for about 200-250k (if you even see it for sale) on Torv server.
It may be due to there arent many on this server (many things were changed before this server went live; ie - no manastones dropped, no guise of the deceiver, etc - so this may be one of them)

Okay, I know that these are priced highly by Necro's & Tanks & PvPers, but c'mon! People are expected to sell all their equip & spend their life savings on plat on EBay just to buy a necklace that procs Eye of Zomm? I prefer to just buy a frickin' Staking Probe or two. Your probably not going to run out of them for a while & when you are, just buy more. Since you could make more money while working with the Probe to buy more & to have extra, you could save a bundle.

Now I'm sure I'm going to recieve backfire & horrible ratings for my post because I am fed up with these Insane prices some jerks post. Take a Gold Plated Koshnigatana. 9/20? with Dismiss Summoned. Here it says it's worth 2.5k. I check on my server, & 3 others. That waste of money is worth 500pp tops. I traded mine for a Weighty Polearm.

Now, necro's are most likely lovers of Eye of Zomm for it can be tapped/bonded for health while you lich yourself. But save money to actually buy Lich or other spells & just buy Stalking Probes or go to Naggy's Lair & Solo SS's. PvPers must love the effect to look for people you may have trouble with, but not the price & the actual stats. Tanks love Eye of Zomm to check on camps. PvPers, do what I always, buy a Stalking Probe. Tanks, get a wizzy/mage/stalking probe.

Yes I know SP's run out of charges, but I frequently see 8 go for 50pp. That can last for 40 Eyes. Now, I'm really fed up with the people who post these insane prices, along with that 8 AC ring that drops in FM. The person who posted prices, he kept copying & pasting everything he said about 20 times so he could flux the price to 4k. Btw, the same guy posted a price here. I'd say these should go for 10k TOPS.

End of Rant (P.S-I know I'm going to get bad ratings, but please, look at the item, look at the items that have Eye of Zomm, & re-read my rant. I'm sure it'll make sense for anyone.)

Edit- I also just learned that these no longer drop. They should go for 20-35k Tops if you really want one. If you see higher, buy some SP's. Oh and when I'm talking about Tanks, I mean like INT tanks in all INT caster grps. Trust me, I've been in a few.

Well just because you don't think its worth 200k ( not saying it is ) doesn't mean others aren't willing to pay 200k or more.

You are leaving out many important factors also when you consider why it is worth 200k to some people.
on because upgrades tend to be no drop.

Its called supply and demand, there is a little supply for it and many people want it so people are able to sell it for the most they will get for it ( thats the point of selling items to make money not to help the world out )

Yes stalking probes are cheaper and can do the same job, but this item is much more convenient it takes up less space, never runs out so you don't have to constantly go back to the bazaar.

Also people at higher levels, in good raid guilds don't have anything left to buy in the bazaar sometimes and they can afford to spend more money on items like this and it goes back to supply and demand someone with plat, realy wants it, they will pay it to make sure they get it, they aren't going to wait around to see if that price drops when they know someone else is willing to pay that plat for it.

Its not the people at your level that would be buying it either, it is the people that are level 65 in good raid guilds that have the money to spend on a toy like this that would be the ones buying it. If you realy have that much of a problem with not being able to afford one then get level 65, get a good raid guild and get that nice no drop armor and then comment on what its worth, because you said it should go for 20-35k max? well for many people at level 65 and in good raid guilds thats pocket change. I know I don't have a spare 200k laying around to spend on an item, and for an this item I probably wouldn't pay 200k if I did, but I would defiantly pay more then 35k for this item if I can ever see one on sale and have the cash for it at the time.

( Don't mind me I know this was posted a few months ago but this rant just seemed so ridiculous that I had to comment on it )
