There were some problems in the Item Collector code after yesterday's patch that have since been (hopefully) corrected. This item simply hasn't re-updated in Lucy yet.

LoL ur an idiot. BST get 300 nuke? BST get a 800 Nuke.. add this + crit AAs and he'll be critting for well over 1500 dmg.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 05 2004 at 10:57 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) OMG newb, a beast with an 800 nuke with crit aas will rarely hit that much dmg... Im a wiz (i have more crit AAs than bst do... alot more) i have them all and i usually only crit 1-3 to 1-4 times. so a beast aint goint to do **** for nukes. thats a Wizard/ice caster item

Sorry sir, YOU are the newb. Reasons why you are a newb:

1st off for even coming here and ******** that a bst would consider looting that.

2nd off cus I doubt you've ever seen the temple period. With your me me me attitude I doubt you ever will.

3rd off cus if your guild DID make it here and your wizzys didn't ALREADY have E'ci or better focus items then you SUCK. Stormriders Signet from Kuanbyr is sooo easy to get if you can do Sol Ro it's not even funny, and 8 hr respawn. Not to mention The Raintravelers Overcloak from PoS as well as stuff in VT.

4th off 90% of the time you're gonna be using SoS and not a cold nuke. Beasts/shammies ONLY have cold nukes. Amd while you think that wizzys do the only damage in the world, um they don't.

When someone says they'd like an item cus it improves their toon, just STFU before you start bashing them for wanting improving. ESPECIALLY if you don't know WTF you are talking about.

just a clarification.

This is not a temple, its a tower, the Temple of Solusek Ro is a much different zone. Shammy dont ONLY have cold based nukes, they have poison ones too, which usually have better mana to damage ratios and are harder to resist than cold based ones.

well, what kinda bst would want an item with 125 hp and 135hp. and i mean look its only 12/sta/dex/cha. and god who the f'u'ck would want a focus effect that works on half of your nukes. (note thats me being sarcastic, incase your slow or wanna ***** at me for saying that)

its tower of solesko ro. temple of sol ro is a low level zone used in many oldworld quests, such as old world armors like lambent,ivy etched armors, the class specific ones. most people now day have never really noticed that zone, cept for clerics who have part of their epic there. Then sir, if you indeed meant Tower of Solesko Ro, it is not hard to get access to SRT. you can just do the banished efreeti heart quest, and gain access there. Also you dont need to have a great attitude to get into a raiding guild, you just need obedience.

that would mean getting keyed for VT, then taking down the raid mobs there. for the pos cloak, one of the mobs is much harder than sol ro. and the other is annoying as **** to do since every death spawns add, the the raid is in jepordy if neone ***** up and gets aggro. From the bee, its a very rare drop, and normally you wont get it.

They also get poision based nukes, and poision nukes are much faster than the ice nukes they get which are a bit more mana effecient but not worth the slow cast time. really idk why a shaman would care about the focus on it. it is nice, but shaman dont do a ton of dps, not from their ice nukes ne ways. also while wizzy's dont do the only damage in the game, they do do the majority of it.
also shamans have multiple pr lowerers so it makes them even harder to stick.

that being said, this is a great item for anyone who can use it. also ne one wonder besides for me why this gives fury of e'ci instead of fury of solesko, or fury of ro?

A. Uh i believe he said /ice casters so he did include shammies.
B. Ur here ******** about his ********* i know im ******** about your ******** so i guess im a newb but...)
C. Newb is the worst insult EVER. Saying some1 is new to a game just sounds so nerdy. Admit it.
D. On mobs with fire resist (yea none of those...) using SoS would be stupid.
But the main reason im posting this is beacause u said newb and I'm just sick of it. It's a stupid insult, stop using it. Please.

got this last night and its totally rocking.

65 Beastlord of Bertox
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 18 2004 at 5:38 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) There's plenty of range items out there with similiar stats or better. The effect on this orb mostly benefits casters, not a BST. What a waste. "Happy Cold-Base Nuking."
RE: w00t
# Apr 16 2004 at 9:32 AM Rating: Decent
i take in just as many benefits from this item's stats as any caster does. and the other guy is right, the only nukes i have are cold based. i don't see anything wrong w/ a beastlord having this. with maxed SCF, this thing turns a nuke that does 675 reg and crits for 1350 into a nuke that does mid to high 800's common and crits for upwards of 1700 or more. thats some nice added DPS on raids imho.

Umm...bsts ONLY have COLD based nukes

# Nov 08 2003 at 1:28 PM Rating: Default
well if u think about it ice based spells on a fir based mob where fire spells do not work ice or cold puts out fire hehe .
what I like
# Mar 13 2003 at 2:31 PM Rating: Default
this drops off Solusek Ro, and it aids you on your ice-based nukes in PoFire. Ironic, but whatever.. hehe
I like the additional dmg (max 2015 I have seen non-crit) as well as the stats (Blackflame sphere better stats though)
a little confused
# Feb 21 2003 at 5:52 AM Rating: Default
E'Ci is the Ice goddess, no?
then why does the orb of the _sun_ aid ice nukes? just a thought...
lol

i like the exclusion Uber dragons and giants, thats great
RE: lol
# Jul 17 2003 at 1:49 PM Rating: Decent
I think that exclusion relates to the giant bane and dragon bane wizzy nukes.
RE: lol
# Oct 01 2003 at 12:51 AM Rating: Decent
Yup. Giantbane and Dragonbane are considered on par with Complete Heal. Being spells that could have unbalanced much content in the game, had they been allowed to be effected by: Spell Haste, Mana Preservation, Improved Healing/Damage. So they added the stipulation that most focus effects won't work with these spells.
RE: lol
# May 12 2004 at 6:18 PM Rating: Default
Oh yea, really unbalancing considering they only affect velious model dragons/giants, increasing dps vs ToV, and Kael; basically nowhere else.
well...

well, imo - illia should be my valentine. =)

weak?
this item is damned nice considering...30% to ice nukes is incredible plus 125hp/135mana make it one hell of a range item. I can only dream of this ******
RE: Oh well
# Jan 01 2005 at 6:55 PM Rating: Decent
It's not weak, Shamans/Beastlords can go with it, I'll stick with my Glowing Stone of Expulsion for now.

And yeah, I'm a Wizard.
RE: Oh well
# Feb 15 2003 at 3:12 AM Rating: Default
Nice item, but the name is messed up for the effect. Should have been Fury of Solusek. Last I checked most "sun" nukes were fire based.
RE: Oh well
# Apr 29 2003 at 10:54 PM Rating: Decent
waaaah fury of solusek would be a bit much eh? anger of solusek drops off the coirnarv encounter, RZTW, and poeb rings... much less solusek ro, gimp of flame!
