actually, AGI helps avoiding hits. but the thought is there, and the stat as well.

wouldn't mark it as an obvious chanter item though.

everybody needs resists. normally, meleers should have to think more about dex and agi than a chanter. they are the one whacking the mob and getting whacked on, after all.

as a chanter, if it dropped, I'm pretty sure I'd pass. agi, and especially dex, come kinda low on my list of priorities.

A ranger gets his dex elsewhere because you either wear a tormax helm, helm of the tracker or better.

Ever consider that not every ranger worships tunare? Also 10ac, dex, and agil, not to mention the resists are drool inducing for any ranger...
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 23 2002 at 12:51 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I am a ranger, and I want one, my dex is hella low, and dex is VERY important to a ranger, bow shooting and all.
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 15 2002 at 5:18 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) this dropped the other day ..cleric master looted everything .and said he was tired and logged ..DOHSmiley: glare
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 13 2002 at 2:00 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I'm totally with ya on that one. I was in Seb a while ago and the Mrylo Bracer dropped. I didn't have one and thought, OH, my chanse, I'm the only Rogue in the group!!!! Of course, the Cleris, being the person who looted and the group leader, said ok, we're gonna roll on it...and of course he ended up going way with it. I really hate Clerics sometimes, ya know?
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 19 2003 at 10:56 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Odd, I'm a cleric and I'm dirt poor. At level 60 I'm still wearing a Fine Steel BP because I cant afford anything better. You guys can farm decent plat by hunting in any number of places. A cleric can't solo jack. Even with my level 58 summoned hammer I fight about as well as a lvl 35-40 warrior and I nuke like a 44 wizard - except with a much higher mana cost, no harvest spell and without the ability to port to nexus to refresh kei.

You lose 2 AC and 5 to each of the resists, but then 10 to a couple of relevant stats (and the 10 AGI adds 2 AC anyways). And if 5 off your resists is gonna make a huge difference, consider getting more resist gear I guess - I would hesitate to lose all 20 from the Froggie Cap but a mere 5 is ok... And it's entirely weightless. I would use this over the Frog Crown, if only because its something different.

My tradeoff was between this and shissar scale helm for my level 49 monk:
Pros: One less weight, 10 more dex, 15 more fr/cr.
Cons: Two less ac, 5 less agi (still have around 140 unbuffed), 25 less hp, and 15 less poison (not nearly as useful as fr/cr).

Overall, I'd say for monk that hive crown > shissar scale helm.
um agi helps

uhh, why would there be agility if it didnt do anything, it adds AC and defense, umm, you never noticed that, oh and hey whats strength do? duh

#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 28 2002 at 4:16 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ranger item hehe, but I'd let it go to a monk if I had one in the group. Well I'm sure rangers have better stuff, but it's nice. Can we say farmlicious?

Would help offest the negative stats on the Fungi. I would take this over a Frog crown any day.
Far as the arguement that agi and dex do nothing. I replaced my PSC with a Fungi. They are 6 ac difference i believe, but i lost close to 30 total ac from the switch which leads me to believe that agi does more then people believe.
RE: Nice
# Mar 03 2002 at 5:37 PM Rating: Default
hi feignz.. i dunno how much ac is affected by agi, but i do know that there is a very BIG ac penalty for having an agi below 75... try loading yourself up with copper the next time your at a bank until your agi is 74 and see how much your ac goes down..
RE: Nice
# Aug 16 2002 at 8:35 AM Rating: Default
might be hard for a monk to do that since they also have the weight penalty and i doubt thier str is less than 20.
but i spose you could equip some minus agi items and test it. I have read though that there is a significant change in ac hp whatnot pre and post 75 but that its lesser after that point
# Feb 27 2002 at 7:26 PM Rating: Decent
I'm the monk that got it.

Replaced my froglok, and lost 5 on the resists, but the dex and agi are nice, and matter a lot if you play a monk.

RE: Yes

Wouldn't worry about the resists... if your going on a raid where you need resists, switch back to your old item :)

#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 27 2002 at 7:11 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) its a ghetto Froglok Crown.... Dex and AGI? lol that does nothing
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 28 2002 at 1:10 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Dex and Agi may not mean a shaman. :P
#Tuluvar, Posted: Feb 27 2002 at 6:38 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) OK let me guess .... blah blah definitely a monk item ?
# Feb 28 2002 at 8:40 AM Rating: Default
Was thinking rogue/monk...
# Feb 28 2002 at 12:27 PM Rating: Default
awsome monk and rogue item, but don't forget bard item as well, this thing rocks, my bard would love one of these, i wonder how much they sell for.
# Feb 28 2002 at 8:26 AM Rating: Decent
Scary thing about this is, you might actually be right in your sarcasm, lol. I can't see any other melee dropping whatever they're using to get this, especially if they're of the level needed to fight in Umbral Plains. Only person other than a monk who might even want to use this would be a caster, and Froggy crown has better resists, which is usually more valuable to a caster. However, if you're like us and you've got the ghetto gimp level 59 warrior who quit for a while and came back with full leather... he might could use this. Hehe, stay cool fellow uber-seekers.
