I've been seeing this drop off of the random rat men monsters in Dragon Necropolis. I've seen it drop from "an escaped worker" and "a Paebala rebel" for certain, in the Paebala cave. The Batfang Headband has dropped from "a Paebala Spirit Talker" for me as well

Update: I've also found out that they drop off of the Chetari in DN as well; so far getting one off of "a Chetari guard"

The Felwithe Batskull Bug
# Oct 11 2003 at 10:35 PM Rating: Decent
I am sorry to report that the famed Felwithe Batskull Bug has been fixed. Merchants no longer sell these lovely little earrings, and people once again must go back to camping them in WK and TD. By the way, for some reason, the drop rates on this earring has been decreased drastically. For example, at the West Karana camp there are three mobs who have a chance to drop this earring. The earring itself is fairly common, about one in ten chance from Goonda and one in twenty from either of his helper shammies. So there is a 20% chance that you will get a BS Earring from one round of killing all three mobs every time. This decent rate has been downgraded to about half as much, Goonda at about one in fifteen and the others at about one in thirty. A decrease to about 9% chance. Good luck... Drops go down, prices go up, economy goes *BANG*.
30pp is to much

still has the batskull bug it seems. Or at least if people still arent buying them, there were multiple players shouting out to sell them at 30pp or below last night. This may not be a bad time to make a new necro or wizard if you want a fast INT boost!
oh yeah

doh never mind, SOE fixed the bug and now the merchant sells nothing :(

So i figured they found some bug or something. The post below stating there is a merchant selling... for probably 25pp or so... is probably the reason.

Odd they would put this on a merchants standard wares list.

So is same on brell, a merchant must be selling them.

Ok anyone who wants one of these on the Torvonnilous server must have noticed a huge price drop on these guys, I'm the reason, i found out where to buy these at a merchant so if anyone wants one of these for 60pp just send me a tell. I'll be on either Fonalrono or Zonalrono.
worked on low lvl chanter pets
# Dec 01 2002 at 1:35 AM Rating: Decent
This works on chanter pets as long as they are in the lvl range. (20 something I think). It gives message "your batskull earring begins to glow" and I still had the same amount of tiny daggers as before but now I had my pet too =)

As long as it takes a reagent, it will work I believe. However, just so you know, I have never noticed this working. I have a runed mirthril bracer (conservation 3) and it probably does work, but I was never off in my count of fish scales when I am raiding the Grey. So if it does do anything, it's pretty uncommon.
Check the .dat info
# Oct 16 2002 at 10:52 PM Rating: Decent
Summon type spells are excluded.
Not Goonda
# Jul 08 2002 at 6:06 PM Rating: Good
Well, I got two of these camping the Goonda camp and neither dropped off Goonda. One was off one of the Ogre Guards and the other off an Ogre Shaman. In fact, I have killed Goonda going on over 50 times now, and he's only dropped two things to my group(s): Chipped Bone Bracelet once and a Turtleshell Helm once. I have gotten every item dropped in this camp multiple times, but most of the stuff has a better chance of dropping off the Ogres surrounding Goonda.

All random, all luck.

Good luck!
reagent conservation strategy

If you're bound near a bank stick one of these in there for convenience during corpse runs. This way you won't have to run around trying to get components for enduring breath or levitate if they aren't convenient.
RE: reagent conservation strategy
# Aug 06 2002 at 3:16 AM Rating: Default
or u could just have a stack of batwings in the bank like i always do :P
plus its reagent CONSERVATION i beleive u need to have one to cast still, u just have a chance of not using it...

You'd still have to have one on you. This just gives a chance of it not being used.

cheif goonda
# Jun 20 2002 at 1:46 PM Rating: Decent
i dont know if i was just unlucky or what. goonda i killed 30 tiem he dropped nothing of value. the shamans that are with him dropped the chipped bone braclet. another thin i found is it's somewhat worthless to camp cheif and his crown for anything. they r suck a really long spawn time. oowamp is far better

got this today from the great owwmpa guy and it's not regen 2 but regen 1 picture even shows that

If you wear one on each ear does the mana conserv. II stack?
RE: Stack?
# Jun 19 2002 at 10:34 PM Rating: Decent
The levels of the focus effects don't stack, *and* having more than 1 of the same level (two mana/reagent conserve 2 items) of focus effect do not stack.
wrong effect
# Jun 08 2002 at 4:54 PM Rating: Decent
Take a look at the graphic, it's not mana conservation, it's reagent.
RE: wrong effect
# Jun 10 2002 at 8:48 AM Rating: Decent
Depends on what day the pic was taken. I had one effect on my Cougar Claw Earring on the first day of the patch, changed the next day to something different. Don't mean to confuse, but things DID change. Allakhazam is correcting as they can...
Mana Preservation II
# Jun 07 2002 at 10:37 AM Rating: Decent
Is this effect cumulative? I mean would having 2 batskull earrings on give up to 20% mana reduction or would it still stay as just 10% total.. Anybody have information on this? Thanks!
RE: Mana Preservation II
# Jun 19 2002 at 6:08 PM Rating: Default
I think it would be safe to assume that if you had two batskull earrings on it would increase your chances of the affect "proc'ing". Two earrings = 2 chances for reagent to be conserved.
RE: Mana Preservation II
# Jun 20 2002 at 6:01 AM Rating: Good
The new focus items are not proc'd or triggered. They are permanently on, therefore there is no check to be made. If you have the focus item on then it will be used. Having more than one with the same focus effect of the same level will gain nothing because it is only going to use one. They do not stack so to speak. To try to be a little clearer if you have a Mana Preservation I item and a Mana Preservation II item. You will only receive the effect from the Mana Preserv. II item. You will not get a cumulative effect. Hope this helps.

<more thought>
I can see where you might get the idea that you have two chances for the reagent conversation if you had two items since the effect description says that it gives you a 15% chance to save the reagent. So now I'm now sure about the possibility of increasing your chances with the reagent effect.

RE: Mana Preservation II
# Jun 22 2002 at 5:55 AM Rating: Decent
well since it now has reageant 1 on it ,, it does make a check so having 2 will give u 2 chances not to use your spell component
RE: Mana Preservation II
# Jun 07 2002 at 1:00 PM Rating: Decent

Mana Preservation II is not cumlative. So if you have 2 batskull earrings, you only get 10% mana reduction, not 20%.

I think it would be safe to assume, however, that if you wore two batskull earrings you would get two checks on the effect.

What does the effect on this earing Do?
RE: Effect
# Jun 07 2002 at 1:06 AM Rating: Decent
Mana Preservation II
1: Lowers mana cost up to 10%
2: Restriction: Spells level 44 and lower
3: Restriction: Exclude spell 'Complete Healing'

RE: Effect
# Oct 11 2003 at 10:25 PM Rating: Good
The effect on this item is NOT mana preservation I or II. In fact, this item has Reagent Conservation I on it, which decreases the chance of using a reagent by 15%, up to level 20. It says that summoning spells are excluded, however I have had a malachite reagent get missed in a pet summoning. Does this count as summoning? I think so, but that's just me, no one can presume to know the mind* of SoE. Good hunting and safe travels. ;-)

*Assuming SoE has one, among all it's collected corporate corpses.

We got 4 yesterday in Dragon NEcropolis. Seemed like it was random off any mob in the Rat tunnels cause we got them off Chetari and bats.
More than Goonda!
# Oct 19 2001 at 3:34 PM Rating: Default
I am a 40 Wizard on Quellious. Camped Goonda and killed him about 20 times, no earrings. Got bored so I started killing the Shaman and Priestess that spawn in the center near Goonda. Wow! Finally got Earring off Goonda. I continued this and then got my second Earring off an ogre priestess! I found anything that Goonda drops, so do the Shaman and Priestess and vice versa.

These are the drops I got - Batskull earring, Sheer bone mask, Chipped bone bracelet, Giant snakespine belt, Batfang headband, Chipped bone Collar, and a Turtleshell helm.

They drop something maybe one time for every other round of the trio.
