Heard a rumor this is no longer an active quest on Live.

Any verification of this?

what effect?
# Dec 20 2004 at 4:42 PM Rating: Decent
what effect are you reffering too? the mana regen? works at lvl 1.
RE: worth it even under 44
# Dec 20 2004 at 4:34 PM Rating: Decent
Even though the level for effect is 44 the rest of the stats are still much much better than a lot of ear slots out there...

Im not sure what effect youre reffering to, but the mana regen works at lvl 1. have fun with this thing hehe i even have one for my ranger.

The powers that be of this site are aware of the problem of the mana regen not showing up in the profiles.

Now if they could just figure out how to fix it. Smiley: frown

Are you low level (under the level some say it is "supposed" to work - 41 or something)? If so, go in the game, open inventory window, and see where your numeric mana score is. Sit and med with the earring on - and see how many points it goes up each pulse. Then take off the earring and see how many points it goes up each pulse. If it goes up one more w/ the earring on, the FT1 is working. And then this debate will be over, hallelujah! Pls post results here! Thx much.

I believe what s/he is saying, and I agree, is the Flowing Thought 1/mana regen. is not showing up in the Allakhazam character profiles , that many of us keep on our characters. (For instance Boots of Flowing Slime show my character has FT 3 equiped, but the Solstice Earring does not show FT1), and it's a great short cut to research other FT 1 items besides =)
If an Admin.Admin. sees this I also ask if you would fix it for us.

[At the risk of being overly redudant - lol. The person wasn't saying it didn't appear or work correctly in Everquest, but that it wasn't in Allakhzam.]

I've just got this on my level 17 Cleric - obviously the stats aren't maxed because of the recommended level, but it still shows 'mana regeneration +1' on the item, and I've confirmed I am actually regenning the extra 1 mana/tick with the earring equipped.

So does this item no longer have the Mana Regen property? This was my main reason for wanting this item.

I have 2 Mana Regen at level 65 (yeah, I know it's sad). It's working fine. Here is my [link=javascript:view_profile(749307);]Magelo[/link] profile. The mana regen shows up properly there.

There's a problem in Alla's database that isn't displaying mana regen from (some) items properly in our character profiles on this site.

Getting through Fungus Grove

mana regen works when?
# Aug 06 2004 at 4:54 PM Rating: Decent

Have noticed a debate here - does the mana regen on this item work at lvl 1 or 44? Lucy says "level 44". So some people say that means it doesn't work until 44. Another poster says get the item, stand and put it on - and just watch - you can see your mana regen faster. He says that if an item has a "wearable effect" it works the second you can wear it - like if a bard gets the EB armor (that says it doesn't work until 45 or so) - the EB works at lvl 1 (the other bard armor clickables don't - they don't work til 45). Now that we have numbers and you can see how much your mana goes up each pulse, can someone who has this item (and isn't 44 yet) please tell us what the numbers say? Maybe that would end this debate. Thanks much. (I don't have it yet - if I get it anytime soon I'll post)
RE: mana regen works when?
# Aug 19 2004 at 11:30 AM Rating: Decent
In my experience, the recommended level seems to
"round up". So if it says recommended lvl 51
and you are lvl 26, the amount you get is 0.509
which rounds up to 1.0 mana regen.

But if you are 25/51 then you get 0.490 which
rounds to 0.0 mana regen.

Just my opinion.

I appreciate the thought. But I still maintain the debate would be ended only if someone under lvl 51 who has the earring - esp. someone lvl 10 say - gets the earring and just looks at the numbers where there numeric mana score is displayed - they will see whether or not it's working (see how much mana goes up each pulse w/ and w/out the earring on). I hope someone can do that. I had to quit playing for a few weeks, am back, and am still putting together the $ for this item. Thx much!

I just got this earring yesterday (crafted Champagne, Picnic and Cabbage myself) spent 3350 plat on rest of the pieces in the bazaar on Saryrn. What I am curious about is this earring is now Mana Regen +1- anyone know when this was changed?
# Jul 06 2004 at 6:57 PM Rating: Decent
They changed Flowing thought to read Mana regeneration. This earring was Flowing thought 1, now it is mana regeneration 1. It is the same effect it has always been, I believe, just worded differently.
# Jun 17 2004 at 3:05 PM Rating: Decent
Where have you been? This was changed months ago.

lvl for effect?
# May 12 2004 at 4:55 PM Rating: Decent
So what IS the level for the flowing thought effect? One guy says 44 while another (loudmouth) guy says every lvl 1 twink now has one. With a recommended lvl for the stats of 51 that wouldn't make much sense unless the FT1 worked at lvl 1. Can anyone tell me for sure?

I have all the components and am deciding whether to sell them or I should turn them in.

RE: lvl for effect?
# May 13 2004 at 6:35 PM Rating: Good
the FT works at lvl 1 guaranteed.

RE: lvl for effect?
# Aug 17 2004 at 5:07 AM Rating: Decent
The mana regen does indeed work at lvl 1, as Johnyjohn stated. Now we have the mana displayed in numerical form on the inventory, I checked this with a new enchanter I made.

All Flowing Thought items have been changed in-game to have the equivalent level of Mana Regeneration, as shown above.

How is this going to be handled now on Alla Profiles?

These do not show up now when I look at my profile under mana regen or effects. Which shows incorrect information to users.
# Jun 03 2004 at 10:00 AM Rating: Decent
It showed up on my search for mana regen items. DB seems to handle it OK.

2.8k on Xegony
# May 03 2004 at 4:10 PM Rating: Decent
I bought all 9 items in bazaar on Xegony server 2 different times ( main and alt ) first time was 2.8k and 2nd time was 3.09kpp so this is definatly worth the time to do.. which is like 15 minutes total ( if you dont lag to bad in the bazaar )

The effect from this earring is not showing up in profiles on Allakhazams. The FT2 from my ornate bracer shows up, but the FT1 from this is not showing.

Actually, oddly its showing up as FT1 on my cleric's profile, but doesn't show up for my druid. this is an FYI for the site admins, since I cannot send email from this comp.

Well, I take that back, not that I updated my cleric's profile, half his FT items do not show in his profile.

RE: profiles
# Apr 26 2004 at 11:35 PM Rating: Decent
Basically its not showing up on profiles because they've had to remove the whole "Flowing Thought I" etc.. etc... everything is now Mana Regen +1 and what not.

I'm sure the guys here are working hard to get the profiles up to date as well as changing all those FT items over to Mana Regen items. Just a matter of time.

Dont buy the 5k MQ, only cost me 3270 plat from buying in the Bazaar. Hope this helps
Lvl for effect
# Apr 15 2004 at 3:50 PM Rating: Decent
So, you have to be at least lvl 44 for the Flowing Thought effect? In other words, if my lvl 31 cleric gets the earring, I won't notice the effect until lvl 44? Just want to make sure this is correct.
