Got one of these in a trade today on Xev server. Person said he paid 200pp. 7 Dex is a nice boost to proc rate, but not THAT nice, considering the low AC, IMO.

Haven't gotten to a auction zone for a PC, yet, but I'll probably end up selling it to a merchant for 25pp just to get rid of it.

Not sure if the price has now changed on this item...because the stats sure have:

Ac 6
Dex +7
Agi +2
Cha -15
Save vs Magic +5
How do you camp this?

I currently have the previous version of the Grotesque Mask, which I bought from someone. I am a lvl 40 SK.

After seeing this post I tried camping it. I went to room 3 on Runnyeye lvl 4 from map on EQ Atlas where the Goblin King is supposed to spawn according to the map. According to the info on the item, the Goblin King and 3-4 spawns are supposed to spawn here. This room is barely big enough to hold one spawn.

I killed every greenie that I saw on lvl 4 of runnyeye, and could not get the King to spawn after 6 hours.

Did Verant change Runnyeye like they did Befallen or what?

I would love to get this mask!

Seems to be quite common and often on auction channel in Ecommons/Gfay.
My HalfElf Pally (unmodified 85 CHA) has one of those - bought it for 50 PP from another Player. Just have to remember to take it off befor i go shoppin' - it makes about 10% difference for the price u have to pay.
May not seem very much for a ratio or bottle of water, but if you count that without forage and/or summon food you'll have to buy loads of them plus arrows/fletching supply and sometimes quite expensive stuff (100pp without 109pp with mask f.ex. :o)
But the Dex+ is surely worth it. Also seems to affect the speed you learn a certain weapon skill. I try to keep 1HS and 2HS maxed every lvl, which is almost impossible without high dex and fast weapons

With the argument that Dex is no longer as important as it once was thought for Warriors, what would be the next logical upgrade from it? I like the Dex bonus ('cuz it makes me believe that my Acid-Etched Sword will fire off more often) but, this is way old-school gear. There must be a better Kunark or Velious Equivalent.
Yes Very very Common

Very common
