105pp for reagent?
# Feb 02 2005 at 2:44 PM Rating: Decent
Gate potions sell in the bazaar for 2800 to 3000pp per 10-dose bottle, and it can be sold back with the last remaining dose to an NPC vendor for up to 1900pp, thus making the per-gate cost 100pp to 122pp. If the Quintessence can be made for 105pp at the cheapest, getting this necklace to use for transportation is foolish (If you have a shammy to make the Quintessence, you could make the gate potions even cheaper). It just seems assanine to me that the final necklace still requires a reagent to cast Gate; this would be a great item otherwise. The final necklace IS a nice item for stats, however, but without full elemental access youre SOL.

Remeber this is a Gate to PoK, not a gate to Bind.

Off the top of my head, say something like:

Bind outside Old Seb, farm for a bit, use this to Gate to PoK, sell, then gate back to your Bind. Rinse/repeat.

also trying to to remember if this predated alchamey gate potions. Think it did.

#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 26 2004 at 2:07 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I agree with slackheart. Id just assume buy gate potions then fool with this, and considering I won't play the DKP point system I won't ever devote my soul to the game and get a guild that does EP and time, etc. So there is no way I will see #3.
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 02 2004 at 2:02 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) That was your guild's fault things rotted. My guild uses dkp and if things dont get bid on, it then goes to /ran. Nothing of any value rots. Thats just dumb. I cant imagine not using dkp. Most mobs we kill, there are a very select number of items i am interested in. So to let the chance to get that item when it finally drops to a RNG is silly. I understand some ppl only play EQ very casually and would never acquire much dkp. So in your case, guild up with other casuals and go about your /ran for loot. But i know anyone who plays regular crys everytime some loot they want bad goes to the guy who plays once every 2 weeks due to /ran. No system is perfect for every player, but dkp is the fairest i have experienced.

what is DKP?
RE: h
# Jul 20 2004 at 6:02 PM Rating: Decent
Dragon Kill Points. Basically you get points for raid attendence or other activities that you can use to bid on items during raids.

Is there any known way of rechaging the talisman?
RE: can you rechage

You cannot recharge the talisman. You must either move forward to the next step in the quest or start over again.

Since your average player wouldn't be able to complete the 3rd quest and since at the lvl there's other neck items with as good or better stats (especially since LDoN) I don't think the quest is really worth the effort, since you can buy various gate potions from your friendly neighborhood shaman for roughly the same price as the reagent for the neck. I know a shaman who makes my Shadoweaver Thicket (or whatver the zone is called) gate potions for cost, which is about 140pp ea. Gates within view of the PoK book. Slightly less convenient than a PoK gate, but much more convenient than the hassle of the quest for 5 charges that will cost almost the same per gate.
RE: Hmm...
# Nov 20 2003 at 10:41 AM Rating: Default
Sorry to have to say this but your very wrong, matey. Its definately worth getting this, not only for the gate thing but also the stats. When you eventually get up to EP zones, theres very very seldom drops that is for your class only or for your character <-- that is often decided through raidpoints, making it very hard to get the stuff you want, you have to consider how many you are in the guild. My guild can muster 90 players for raid, atleast half the force is wearing the third neck item and the other half is questing for it, save for maybe 10 players that has better items.
the box?
# Aug 30 2003 at 5:05 AM Rating: Decent
can the box for the 2nd talisman be somehow retrieved if you "misplaced" it?

Edited, Sat Aug 30 06:02:53 2003
RE: the box?
# Sep 12 2003 at 3:46 PM Rating: Decent
Run the first part of the quest again and you'll get the box. The box is the same as the original one you used to get the first talisman.
you can get a group here at 46
# Aug 04 2003 at 3:37 PM Rating: Default
You can get a group here at 46 considering the day that i got 46 i went to PoJ all the way to 53 and still sometimes go here as long as you stay near the exit your fine so those who say that you cant get a group here at 46 do not know what they r talking about.

I heard there is a way to recharge this (not including the 2nd and 3rd upgrade). If so, please tell me how and where/what component(s) are needed. Thx.

There's no way to recharge it, the final version has no limited charges. Also every version requires a "Quintessence of Knowledge" as a material component, which are made buy Shamans alchemy skill.

Hmm dinged 46 plan on trying to get this ASAP pretty sweet considering i'm still using some of the PoK focus effects and my level 20 equipment :D will replace my +5 INT necklace nicley once i get it

As I imagine you'll learn quickly, you can't get a group in and tier one but PoJ really at 46. Even then it's tuff. Just so ya know, don't get your hopes up of having this too soon. Please don't flame me...
RE: Nice Item
# Aug 03 2003 at 4:56 PM Rating: Decent
not Flaming but I got groups at 46. With and w/o guild.

He said except for PoJ. I believe what he's saying is that you can get the note and bottle, but you're not likely to get a PoD/POI/PoN group, at 46. Of course this depends on class and gear, but the average lvl 46 tank, would get pasted pretty badly, the first archaic model they pulled in PoI, as an example. Smiley: smile

This item gets upgraded a couple more time to result in an unlimited charge talisman. However, it still requires a reagent (~100pp)

The following link explains what steps are necessary to upgrade this item:

Can someone who has this tell me what reagent is required for the gate?
RE: More info

Quintessence of Knowledge (SP?) Alchemy made, VERY low skill check, but about 100pp a pop to make.
Just what I heard...

I heard it uses a ruby as a recharging component... Not sure if its true, but worth a try :)

RE: Just what I heard...

Reagent is made by shamans only, using Alchemy skill (trivial in the 30s). Quintessence of Knowledge, takes about 105pp EACH to make assuming no failures. Erudition Vine + Tanaan Ginko combined in medicine bag. These are stackable potions and each click you give the talisman burns a charge and eats one off the stack.

I have tryed all 6 mana batteries and none will recharge i have also looked for anyone in PoK who will recharge this and no luck. Please post if you personally have found a NPC who will recharge or if you have had a successful recharge. Thanks.

Ok, I tried to use the talisman today after our guid raid in Fear. It cast, but at the end, it didn't work saying i wan missing a required component, something called Quintessense of Knowledge.

Someone please shed some light to this dilemma cause it has got this ranger totally comfused.
RE: Weird Message
# Nov 07 2002 at 10:42 PM Rating: Excellent
Quintessence of Knowledge is a new Alchemy recipe. Have a shammy mix erudition vine and tanaan ginko together. The trivial is less than 35 according to EQTraders. BTW, I have no clue where you can get the ingredients. Hopefully this helped a bit. :)

ingredients are on the new alchemy vendors in PoK
# Nov 06 2002 at 4:20 PM Rating: Excellent
1) Get a note in a bottle off of a festering rat in PoJ

2) Give note in a bottle to Jimlock Keylifter in PoT-he is standing at the top of the stairs near the PoN zone looking out at the ocean. He looks at the note and gives you a note to take to his cousin in PoK named Tabben Bromal.

3) Give Tabben the note (he is upstairs in the merchant's quarter in PoK). He gives you some small kit to put some new items in to combine.

4) Loot: Tri-coated metal casing in PoI
Size "C" spring in PoI
Creeping silk strands (off goo in PoD)
Congealed Bile Based Ooze (spiders in PoN)

5) Put all 4 items in the kit that Tabben gave you and combine (no skill needed) then give the kit back to him.

6) He gives you the kit back with the gate talisman in it.

Now, after you are done, Tabben talks about the next step to the talisman...gotta collect 4 more things but I have no clue where to get them: dense hammered casing, a crystalline carapace, a fiery power source, and strands of living chain.
Gotta get these and put them back in box with talisman and combine again then give to Tabben.
If anyone knows where to get the other 4 items and what the reward is...please post.

this is a quest the name of it is Jimlok's Friend. you talk with Jimlok (maybe cant remember gnomes name) in PoT hes on the stairs fishing its near the pon zone. He is missing his friend and what you need to do is, go to PoJ kill rats and look for a note in a bottle. loot that bring it back he gives you some letter you take the letter to the person he says and get the 4 items he wants, the quest name is Jimlok's Friend look it up i cant remember the items needed
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 31 2002 at 7:11 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This is a quest. I saw someone shout that i finally did my first qeust and gave a link. I just wanna know if anyone knows how to do it. Any info would be great.
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 31 2002 at 12:44 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) If it drops from a mob, and is no drop, it is not rechargeable, if it is a result of a quest, then there might be a chance.
RE: Garbage
# Oct 31 2002 at 1:52 PM Rating: Decent
LOL I always think its funny when people make comments about triggered gate items..They are not ment as a way to escape a mob or anything who cares about the 20sec cast time hehe..Those items are always put out as just a means of travel for those that cant gate or port..Every time a item with a triggered gate or port comes out someone complaines about the cast time..20sec or 30sec cast time is much faster then asking for a port :) Well good hunting and safe journey to all.

any gate type item will save melees who can't gate down the road. In a previous news release, it was stated by Verant that a player may reach a point where he/she is left behind and cannot further advance due to the lack of a flag (by going LD when a group completes a task)) nor can they go back and zone out, thus, leaving you stuck (anyone try ghetto succor in the Planes yet?). I always have carried a Thurg gate potion for this reason.. nothing is more frustrating then being stuck under the world due to a bug or stuck somewhere and can't get out (WTB port out of The Hole, pst lol)

Ghetto succor = impale yourself on nearest mob, and look for a 96% res in the graveyard 10 mintues later? Been there, done that! Also had to evac an entire group using a combination of /duel and gate >:) Now if only they'd put that into Sebilis for those ill-omened Juggs groups...

Juggs is easy... Just pull a mob to over by the locked one way door and attack him till he flees... That door that can't be opened all the sudden mysteriously opens so he can flee your wrath... Waltz out with him... No messy duels, gates, corpse summons...
