This staff looks like Fironia Vie's but with a gray gem on the top.
Anyone know what Fironia's staff is called? Infact anyone know what class she is?

Normally I have better things to do and don't bring myself down to this level:

But this is the ugliest weapon I have ever seen! What worse is so many bards are running round with it like its cool on Veeshan.

I play a bard and can appreciate the weapon but its just so godamn ugly, and won't be attempting to get this for my bard.
The Real Iksar

it aint pretty but it gets the job done. would you sacrifice a great ratio and high hps for asthetic purposes? i sure wouldnt as a warrior. if this was war usable and i didnt already have better i'd use it in spite of the graphics. heck, the best droppable warrior sword in the game has a crappy lamentation look to it after all.
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 02 2002 at 8:40 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i just had a question though i didnt think bards used mana? if not then why do they have it on there? /=

Bards do in fact use mana for certain spells. ones like charm and such where it would be "outbalanced" for them to be able to cast it with no restrictions on length. However even with thier mana, mana regen effects and spells have no effect upon them
About Bards and Mana:
# Dec 02 2002 at 4:27 PM Rating: Decent
Bards get mana from +Mana items and from spells that give +Mana.

Bards do not get mana from mana regen spells or songs.

Bards do get mana from Flowing Thought items.
RE: About Bards and Mana:

The only way bards get mana is from AAXP (max of 4 regen - 3 from MC and 1 from B&MRejuv) and FT (max of 15, like all FT items). That combined with a natural regen of 1 per tick maxes out at 20 mana per tick. Bard meditate skill caps at 1, it gives no mana regen bonus but allows us to memorize songs faster.

Bards use mana for our only AE DD that is ranged, our two higher charm songs, and our "Fading Memories" AA. FM is like FD but superior. =)

Bards get their mana from INT. INT and MANA items are important to bards, as are FT items.

Bards can pull taunt if they want, but it takes a concerted effort and specific songs. There is special code written for bards to reduce their aggro. Therefore, a weapon that would easily pull taunt in the hands of a ranger/warrior/monk/whatever will not generally pull taunt in the hands of a bard.

I don't think any sane bard wants to tank in PoP. Melee? Yes. Tank? No.
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 11 2002 at 3:56 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) im a lvl 53 ranger and i tank in PoI with np at all, as long as there is a slower and i get aego :-)
RE: nice

Tanking in PoP isn't receiving 3x the necessary healing per mob to kill it. That's being a manasponge. I'll assume you're killing yard trash because at 53 if you're in the factory, you're likely with a group of higher level players and just contributing damage and not main tanking.

There are a few threads running on the EQcleric boards about this sort of thing. It's great to see the new zones and content, but it's better to be a 100% contributor to the group's efforts by being able and useful and not riding the ability of the higher level group members.

I wouldn't want a 53 ranger, warrior, anything, attempting to MT for me in PoT, Sol Ro, or any of the higher tier zones. You'd be a manasponge and no way could you be kept standing when the trash mobs double for 700+.
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 02 2002 at 12:58 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Yeah, maybe if you're tank was using 10/18 or worse weaps...

Just Wrong

Anyone have the bonus to singing on this? And if it stacks with epic/amp?
RE: Just Wrong
# Nov 29 2002 at 10:54 PM Rating: Default
I'm willing to bet it will be a 1.8 modifier, just like all the other new instrument modifier items dropping in the Planes. It is a fantastic item though, and I hope I can snag one for my bard eventually.
RE: Just Wrong
# Jan 07 2003 at 7:29 PM Rating: Excellent
All the mod weapons I've checked on Lucy have been 2.0 as opposed to epic's 1.8.
RE: Just Wrong
# Mar 25 2003 at 11:01 AM Rating: Decent
Nice weapon, but really its usefulness is going to boil down to whether or not the modifier on the singing is higher than the epic. If it is not, sadly this is a weapon that by the time you can get it, it will most likely be rotting in the bank. Stats, ratio, and hps on this do not compare to drops that bards in a guild of a calibur to get to this will most likely have. Natures melody, Lava infused Bludgeon, Blazing rapier, and Sirensong come to mind off hand.

On the other hand, if it is higher mod, it will definately be a useful pick up for raiding as your MA DS bard will see benefit from the improved singing especially, as well as others.

Just my thoughts.

The modifier on this is 2.0 which is indeed better than epic. I will use this probably until I get a mask from Plane of Water that has the same modifier on it.
