druids are one of the main soloing classes, there not that great in groups. They are sorta like bards cauz they have almost all talents but suck at them. Btw snare on those gauntlets wont stick on 50+ mobs.

I got this in the bazzar for 250p was great I aug it cause it has the lvl spell so I go to try to use it it don't work. Come here to find out that I can't use a lvl 1 spell to save mana till 45... hmm. oh well the 9ac is cool for lvl 25. just wish they would have put a higher lvl snare spell on it.
Worth it?

I kill too many green mobs to count, for tradeskill ingredients. I am so sick of hitting something twice and having it run off at top speed, making me need to chase it or cast a spell and waste mana on it. These will make my life sooo much easier.

#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 16 2002 at 5:25 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Dude, a snare spell takes minimal mana. That waste of mana that you're worried about is trivial.
Nice with free root

If you are a woodie, do the Tunarean neck piece.

I don't often need it, but omg it's SO sweet when I do. This plus Tunarean piece, plus the snare bracer, and who needs mana...

And if you are a halfling, this is what you get for being short!

are the effects on all this armor INSTANT cast or is there a casting time?
RE: ?
# May 28 2002 at 1:10 PM Rating: Decent
It is 4.0 sec
RE: ?

6 Second cast time
I can't complain
# May 06 2002 at 5:41 AM Rating: Decent
I got these for free as a gift, so, I can't complain about them. They look good and if I'm OOM, then they will come in handy for a little while after clicking on the Vambracers Drones of Doom (also a gift he he).
But, I still have a few Lvls to go before I find out for sure if they are worth having or if I'll end up selling them )

do you have to wear this item to get the effect? or can you have it in inventory?

Mine says effect: snare (equipped)

this isnt a proc

its triggered so what are you talking about??
# Mar 08 2002 at 11:29 AM Rating: Default
I would much rather have something that procs root instead of snare. As a halfling, I can't use that Tunare necklace that procs the root.

Could anyone tell me if Beastlord can really wear? I have talked to many Druids and they say no please verify whether Beastloards can use. If you are on Mith Mar I would like to by a pair.

Just a guess, but the Druid Class Specific Kunark armor is not likely to be BL usable any time soon.

These are not a Beastlord Item, I just got these today, and they are still DRU only. THanks. :)
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 30 2001 at 8:13 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ALL of the important druid only gear is Beastlord now, including the Velious quest armor. Yes, one existing class, which happens to be the single most popular, now gets to compete with a whole new class for the same already very rare equipment. Thanks VI you lazy scumbags. Aside from that WTF are they thinking? A shaman based class wearing druid gear?!?! These guys remind me of those dazed transients you see in the streets shouting at imaginary flying pigs, thats how much sense these idiots are making with this. Now we get to watch beastlords run around casting RotG and Circle of Misty after putting in countless months medding alone to reach the level required to get this stuff. Everytime I think that VI has done something right they turn around and act like MORONS, back to DAOC again I guess.
RE: Its not just Kunark
# Feb 04 2002 at 3:52 AM Rating: Decent
Uh.. no. All the Druid armor was accidentally tagged as BST useable in Allakhazam's database, and they are trying to change them back to the way they used to be.
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 23 2001 at 4:14 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) beastlord? i thot they were a shaman hybrid? i dont have expansion adn dont tlak to them much so i wouldnt know just shocked to see that the druid kunakr armor is now BL also

Its true, these have a longer cast time, shorter duration than ensnare, but think of it this way....0 mana. I use these to solo, the difference between using snare and ensnare is you just refresh after every cast, (and why not, its free mana) thereby allowing me to keep a better spell such as another DoT to use. Here is a little secret from a High Level druid. Drones of Doom line of spells do stack. Its probably a bug, but you can cast Drones of Droom and then Winged Death (at level 53) and they stack on top of each other, I replaced ensnare with DoD and now kill the mobs much faster. Here is my formula:

Pull to safe location by casting cancel magic. Cast root. Right click Gaunts. Drones of Droom. Right click Gaunts. Cast Winged Death. Right click Gaunts. Refresh root as needed. Sure it takes a little more work by right clicking more often, but I cant imagine mind numbing soloing without these.

This gear has great spells, and yes if they made the effect ENSNARE, It would never leave my inventory. There are so many different applications to this gear, the greaves give you a mana free heal 100 points at a time. (good soloing) The helm invisibility for those wonderful group runs with melee's, why waste the mana because they lose invis every 10 seconds. The boots, manafree levitate traveling (and keeps you from having to waste a spell slot)...need I say more. Take 1 trip to KC through Dreadlands, and Ill guarantee you would want these boots.

The gear could be better, but when you look at the applications, they really arent half bad. Its all in the creativity of how you use them. These were designed for conventional use, but they can be used in unconventional ways.
RE: ES Gaunts
# Dec 12 2001 at 8:49 AM Rating: Excellent
Actually, the only reason why they stack is because Winged Death is over 50 and there is an exception to the rules that Verant placed in that allow spells of the same type to overlap if one is above level 50 and the other is below level 50. If you try to stack Drones with any other spell of the same type under level 50, it will not work.
RE: ES Gaunts
# Nov 04 2002 at 6:33 PM Rating: Decent
Actually that is now wrong info. I use Drifting death, drones of doom, immolate, and creeping crud on mobs all the time soloing. One of the patches left it so they all stack with each other. Dont believe me (like most) then cast them on yourself starting with your highest dot. The patch that changed this is the same one that lets 2 dots of the same type stack when casted by 2 different players (like 2 druids casting drones). Makes soloing just that much better for druids!

HEY! your right...but the effects on these boots can only be cast if your level 45 or higher...the next DoT of the DoD line type is Winged Death. Besides...I was posting to get people to think about the use of items in different ways, not just sit around and whine about the effects.

#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 23 2001 at 12:28 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) just got something to say...SHUT happy you get something like this...look at the mage items...reclaim energy....ive only used this spell once it sucks...ive never see anyone touch it later or in the sorry you druids dont get everything at its greatest...just be happy every single one of your items doesnt do flame lick or dance of the fireflies...
RE: hmReclaim ENergy worthless???????
# Jan 11 2002 at 6:47 AM Rating: Default
Speaking as a 52 Mage myself, I regularly use and find a lot of use in the reclaim energy from my Foci.

If you are going to lose the pet, it is often far better to reclaim and recast than try to heal. While maybe with the new infusion with luclin (supposed to be around SHeal level for our pets), which I haven;t got, we can effectively heal our pets, but at 52 prior to this combat healing was not an option.

While I admit that there could be better effects (I would kill for a right click summon companion), Reclaim Energy is far from useless.

With SoW on there have been many times that reclaiming my pet just before death, running and then recasting pet, has allowed me to win a fight I would have been gating (with that last sliver of mana) if I didn't get back about 80% of the mana needed to call a pet with Reclaim.

Uselss no, the best, no from a long shot.
