#McCay, Posted: May 09 2002 at 6:01 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Am a melee class & Str. is nice....would go nice with my Yellow Fang Earring....AC 30. Anyway would be good for any melee class. Could understand why monk would like it...but really how much do earrings weigh anyway...Being a warrior think it should go to the main tank classes. But thats just my opinion & I'll shut up now.

You should have shut up before you openend your mouth. Str is easily maxed with buffs, you just wanted to show off that you'd got a yellowfang earring.

Str may be easy to max with items, but often of the expense of other stats.. I have had to sacrifice STR for my dex, so items with a LARGE chunk of str are more than weelcome... And yes, rangers need str.. it increases your atk rating. ATK = DPS...

he said with buffs not items. its easy with items, even easier with buffs. stamina and hp should be a focus. if you're raiding, youll be at or near max str and dex anyways once your all buffed up. its a non issue. your resists, your HP (and therefor stamina) are what will influence your survivability (reducing healing load on the healersnot assigned to the tank, and that helps the raid), and the longer that you survive, the more dps you do anyways. and once you can self buff 200atk and get a\even more from other spells stackoing on, the lil bit you get from str, is also, a non-issue.

Truesight is a cross between see invisible, and a really good sight spell. It basically just lets you see absolutely everything. Hope that helps!

So is all other jewelery "monk only", they weigh 0.1

I got some flasks of water the other day, I feel ashamed cause they are monk only but I am drinking them.

Sheesh.

I'm jsut ****** that Enchanters can't wear this, would think that since its jewelery it would be enchanter only. Bah!

#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 18 2001 at 3:53 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) It's a freakin earring, that's why there is 0.0 weight you stuppid retards.
monk vs. everyother class
# Jun 18 2001 at 2:52 AM Rating: Decent
I have to agree with the people who say that they are getting tired about monks saying that any item that has a high AC, and a low wieght should be monk only. Some items like the ancient wyvern hide tunic that has 40 AC and zero wieght, yea I can see that going to a monk, because warriors have bp that have higher AC's, and are better, but with an item like this, there is nothing better, for anyone. There isn't another earing that comes close to having 18 Ac, and last I checked, Warriors, pallies, sk's, bards, and rogues also need large amounts of AC.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 17 2001 at 5:57 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) why is this a monk item? 18ac is good for any class....the 0.0 wieght doesnt make this a monk item you stupid ******* newbies
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 16 2001 at 11:14 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Wow! Look at the weight! This is a monk item for sure!

If anyone took the time to take their head out of their *** and look at what it takes to do the quest for this I'd say that any class that can use this and do the quest has every right to have it. I mean, come on, an 18AC earring! ****, I'd like it for my cleric but I can't use it so I won't ***** about the fact that I can't use it. Good luck to anyone who does this quest, you have gotten yourself IMO the best melee earring in the game, enjoy it. Just my 2cp

Actually the best melee earring would be Vyrinn's Earring of Insanity, but to get this earring you need to be a Dragon allied guild. The AC and str/sv fire is nice but it would be a whole lot better with HP or stamina on it.

Agreed.

I'll even go so far as to say this is a better tank earring than any other class.

On behalf of monks, this is the stupidest thing Ive seen, were baffling over what clas wants this? um, okay, why? whats truesight? how hard is it to get this item...people, get a brain, im an old school monk, and im dirt tired of these newbie monks bringing in there crappy twinks and stuff, getting power leveled to 60 and getting epics when they join there "uber" guild, You wouldnt believe how many monks I run into that say that I suck, because I dont have good equip, SORRY THAT I HAVE A HEART, you people on this bored that are arguing about this, are pathetic, I wish I could post this message on every board in the EQ world. And once more, for everyones sake, THIS IS ONLY A GAME, and once again...do you have a heart, this is a game, every class that could wear this item would love to. Anyways, Id love to know what truesight is, ive seen it on plentish items../shrug

I can't even wear this, but I SHOULD GET A CHANCE AT IT CUZ IT"S GOT NO WEIGHT AND I'M JUST A WUSSY CASTER!!!!! I NEED IT FOR WHEN I MELEE!!!! No seriously, if it wasn't no drop, i'd give it to my pet. thank you and have a nice day.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 14 2001 at 9:26 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You can give no drops to pets.
#LeenanLocks, Posted: Jun 15 2001 at 1:43 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) if you give it to your pet it will be kill the item. and still it will not do anything. only weapons will do stuff for pets. (and sheilds)

Sheesh, anyone who says this ISN'T monk only is crazy and has obviously never solo'd king Krmozek like me!! and boy, this earing sure woulda help cause he has a nasty cold DD that hits everything around him. Haha, then i zoned outa of Keel Drackel right into wester wastes and slayed Yelnik and went into ToV with my Afterlife bro's and Killed Zlandicar! so see?? monks CAN TANK, suck it!!!

#eumin, Posted: Jun 13 2001 at 11:51 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ya know what... I would wager a good amount of cash that any guild that kills tormax is going to... give this to a Warrior first. Monks are nice and all and need good gear, but if your primary tank isn't in the best eq possible, you don't get to kill anything new. So whoever makes all the monk comments get your head out of your ****, and wake up.
Gaaaah!

All I can say is... Holy *&%$!

18 AC on the EAR?!? +15 Strength? +20 Fire save?

I can't think of a single Melee class that would gladly give up what they were wearing for this item. Not a one. I don't care how much mana it gives you, you can give up half of it (or put it on the other ear) and this would just *rock.*
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 13 2001 at 11:52 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Give up something I'm wearing for this item? Are you crazy? I'd give my left nut...**** they can take both of 'em for this ;)

Monks & Rogues
# Jun 13 2001 at 9:37 PM Rating: Default
Hi Me again, you know the I HATE NBG guy. Hehe... I play a 51st season Rake and I have a Shammy & Monk twink (The Shammy for SoW potions, the Monk for guild CR when H & S are no good and no other Monkies around ... I digress). Rogues and Monks are great classes. Rogues can be very versatile and Monks are gods for pulls and certain CRs. I know (now) about the running Monk joke. (BTW haha) But, I have to say some really bonehead chatter goes on here bashing classes and trying to determine best class for an item Blah, blah, blah. I am not "Uber Lord" (God save me from that ignoble fate.) You know how I got to be 51st? (No, wiseguy, not Ebay) As a Rogue I trained all of my combat skills (Cept HtH) to max. Doing so allowed me to enjoy all of the cool items avail to me... all of them. I have had fun and I leveled to 51 in 1 year (I have a job and a life)
My point... (finally you say) Have fun, quit griping.

Hi
I AM a monk, i'm not sorry i have FD, i die before i let my pulls train someone to death,I don't care if you get this but i don't like it when people bash the class.Don't like us, don't be a monk, but don't go talking crap either.
#scrange, Posted: Jun 13 2001 at 7:58 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Monks are the only class worth playing.. because we can FD.. and it's not our fault that we FD an cause a zone wide masacre.. especially in dungeons where we pull stuff from everywhere to zone.. then FD and watch ppl who come from behind get wiped out.. but Since we spend 90% of our time in FD mode.. we should have the best gear for MONK ONLY.. ya know.. cuz we like to watch other classes die.. so they shouldnt be allowed to upgrade thier gear..
right...

ok before a monk comes here and starts saying only monks should get the quest peices for this because of 0 wt i wanna say that NO, this is ultimately the best earing for all classes that can use it

#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 14 2001 at 7:52 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) well if you think about it, you wouldnt wear a warm coat to protect you from fire, fire wouldnt technically protect you from fire, when you put 2 fires together, u get a bigger fire, course theres that whole fire triangle thingie so the bigger fire would run out of fuel quickly, but still, most people would not set them selves on fire, thereby killing themselves, just to walk through fire. bleh kids taday, a good burn never hurt anyone ---Senile old man
