Got it today, very easy to get (or I was very lucky!)

When you zone in, it is very straightforward; take the west door, avoid the tiny carpet (trap) and go all the way until you see the exit, and kill everything in the area.

When I got there, the mob was up, and it dropped first shot!

Good luck!
Still drops

Crawled through North and West wings of Howling Stones last night on my cleric. Took about 5-6 placeholders for this guy to finally spawn, but he ended up dropping the mask.

Yeah, dropped for my Rogue today on the first kill... will be nice to go with the Dark Elf mask :).
# Sep 14 2004 at 5:27 AM Rating: Decent
hmmm i definatly think this has been nerfed, i normally camp this and it was pretty easy/common but now the tarnished gold plate vambraces are its common and this mask is the rare, also his spawn rate seem slower, can anyone verify?

This mask does (usually) increase faction with Overthere. I have tried it. I have one. No I'm not thinking of Mask of Decption (which works even better).

Also, the charm of being an Erudite wears off kinda fast. Its fun for the first day, then not being able to see really doesn't make up for the uniqueness.

Good for OT hunting

Using it on my bard at night in OT to remove KOS factor with dragoons in OT. Can also trade in the city while in illusion de.
RE: Good for OT hunting
# Feb 15 2003 at 1:39 AM Rating: Default
Um? OT in ERUDITE form is not going to help you. You may be thinking of the Mask of Deception from Assassin camp in LGuk.
RE: Good for OT hunting
# Mar 16 2004 at 9:23 AM Rating: Default
I went from "scowl" to "apprehensive" when my Agnostic Half-Elf Bard put on the Erudite illusion, so perhaps you meant "If you follow a religion that the evil NPCs at the port don't care for, then the mask won't make you non-KOS." Have you even tried the thing? And if so, how did you get up to 15 (to be able to use it) without learning that religion effects faction?
RE: Good for OT hunting
# May 11 2003 at 6:19 AM Rating: Decent
My agnostic Erudite magician can walk about the outpost and sell/bank without being attacked. Unless you're religious, this mask would let you do the same.

not that rare
# Apr 11 2002 at 7:45 AM Rating: Decent
well cant say these re too rare. just spent about 6 hours in HS and saw 5 drop. 3 from group. 2 from another. being a rogue i know how one ... but i agree with an old post here.. the effect looks like crap, and definately makes ya blind as a bat.

When I'm in Erudite form, I can see fine. It gets a little darker than when in Halfling or Iksar form but I can run through Toxx or Feerrott easily.

"Effect looks like crap" ? No way.. the site of a duel wielding big forehead Erudite.. uber :)

edit: here's a shot when I'm in Erudite illusion:

I should've taken a shot outdoors for better lighting.. oh well.

RE: not that rare
# Apr 13 2002 at 9:29 AM Rating: Good
The look is a matter of opinion...I've used one on my rogue and with the right accessories the effect is pretty good. As for the night blindness, get a Mrylokars helm. Bards have their own solution I'm sure
Not that hard to get
# Apr 04 2002 at 10:08 PM Rating: Decent
Every time I've been to HS, I've seen this drop. Not that tough, but usually the people that see it drop and win keep it.. That's why it's so high priced.
# Mar 27 2002 at 12:30 AM Rating: Decent
The EQ people are great to give rogues masks that give them specil power is great rogues cant cast spells but there is 4 mask that change them to a Eduite, Iksar, Dark Elf and Gnome

There is also the halfling mask that drops in Chardok, the High elf mask quested for in Kith forest and the barbarian mask from the Avatar of War in Kael.
If you want more spell casting, check out Mrylokar's armor that drops in KC and OS. There are various other clicky items that rogues can put to good use scattered around...I won't list them here - thats what a premium account is for :)

# Apr 13 2002 at 9:25 AM Rating: Decent
Doh, forgot about the kitty mask in Ssra
# Jan 06 2002 at 1:26 AM Rating: Decent
I just got this mask today and I have to say that it was extremely hard to get and is pretty rare. I only know one other person with one.
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 12 2001 at 4:57 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) whoever posted these prices they are smoking crack. This is a very rare drop in Charsis and is worth at least 9k. If you are lucky enough to get it for less then take the foo for what he's got
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 04 2001 at 1:29 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) if anybody on Saryrn has one of these to sell.. I'll buy it.. send a tell to Yenzo and let me know. have been lookin for one for a while now, and can't find one anywhere. thanks
#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 12 2001 at 4:06 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) WTB Mask of Obtenebration on the Tunare Server! Paying 1,400pp for it. Send tells! (Or just reply to this message hehe)

Not sure about the Tunare server, but if you find one for sale, which is kinda rare, on the CT server, they are only about 3 - 5k. They are a bit more expensive than the other masks, but then again they are harder to get. I know about 6 rogues and 3 bards that have these masks and only one that uses it. The rest of them just have it as a status symbol.

RE: Tunare Server
# Nov 01 2001 at 2:34 AM Rating: Decent
Sorry to tell you this is worth far more, and sells for far more, than 1,400pp =\
RE: Tunare Server
# Dec 02 2002 at 11:03 PM Rating: Decent
I have always been under the impression that something is "worth" whatever someone else is willing to pay for it. That being said, I bought one of these for 1500pp in the bazzar. This item, in my eyes, is not "worth" much more than that.
# Dec 08 2001 at 3:40 PM Rating: Decent
Why do people jack up the price on an item that only 2 classes can use? I be a rogue and the only reason I want it is to look like and Erudite (duh hehe). Sure it's a rare drop but good lord 9k JUST to look like an Erudite come on people have a heart.
# Mar 16 2004 at 9:27 AM Rating: Decent
When one's race can alter their faction in major cities (for example, an Agnostic DE Rogue getting into Erudin for something, or an Agnostic Half-Elf Bard getting into The Overthere's port), I think that "just looking like an Erudite" means more than simple asthetics.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 14 2001 at 4:37 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) anyone on tallon zek have this ill buy it.
