been in awe of this effect for a while now. In the pvp environment it would be perfect for escaping any of those super twinks that like to meander around pking instead of lvling, 3k is a bit rediculous, guess ill have to start making fineplate to afford this anytime in the next few months, as poeple say that camping hadden is only slightly more rediculous than this price

Hadden DEFINITLY still drops this earring, I got 1 last night (4/5/01) on my first kill. Dont get disheartend, it took me 5 kills the last time I did this camp to get 1 so be patient. Just buy yoursef a fishing rod and enjoy the time talking to guildies and friends:)
May have been moved

I have killed Hadden 9 times in a row now since 6-2-01 to 6-4-01 and STILL havn't gotten an earring, there is a rumor floating around that the earring has been moved to Runney Eye, I don't know anybody that has gotten one from there personaly but I'm pretty well convinced Hadden dosn't drop it anymore. I have been killing him for about 2 years now on and off and havn't has to kill him this many times for one earring in over a year since they changed his spawn time from exactly 6 hours to 5-6 hours. Well anyway if someone gets one from him please post and let me know...
frustrating spawn

back when me was about lvl 44ish me had this crazy urge to get this earing, it came off a guy i could actualy solo being a warrior its hard to solo sometimes as most know.

so me picked up the camp killed him first time nothing, second time nothing, theird forth fifth....... twentysecond time NOTHING

I killed him 22 times IN A ROW! NO EARING i went with little to no sleep for almost 6 days

today i have killed Hadden about 35 times gave up camping him just stop by if nobodys camping him ill take a seat for awhile and give away all my newbie vender junk items away to the lowbies who visit with me and bring me supplys...

I have a thing about spending 3k on an earing ill rarely use, i cheap i guess lol
i give too many things away that most people would sell for a heafty profit.

in all the time camping him i timed him every time.

the fastest time was 5hr 12min
longest time was 6hr 2min

average time was around 5hr 35min

keep that in mind if you decide to camp him, and be nice to the lowbies in the area they will bring you supplys if needed hehe

in all the time in that camp i only accomplished a few things
swimming skill up 85 points
alchohal tolerance up 128 points
sence heading up 35 points
fishing up 122 points
gems up to round 65
KOS in Qeynos woohoo!

heres an update to my story...

Its been many months since i posted this and in that time i never camped hadden again for more then 4 hours, usualy stoping by every time im in the area now.

Total i have killed him 86 times and NEVER looted the earing from him!

I do own one now as a friend who knew i put so much time int othis guy gave one to me.

I still kill him from time to time though have a alt char at his camp at all times in case my luck changes and i get another, being lore and all it would suck to have it rot away...

The REAL info

1) the faction hits.
LOSE Merchants of Qeynos
LOSE Antonius Bayle
LOSE Guards of Qeynos
LOSE Coalition of Tradefolk
GAIN Circle of Unseen Hands

2) Effect. It is PERMANENT. You have to wear the earring. You don't right click it. It DOES NOT take a buff slot.

3) Spawn Location. On the little "finger" on the lake where Axe (an NPC) is. Hadden spawns on the side of the fire closer to the lake.

4) Spawn Time. Killed him three times in a row. First two no earring. Each time was 5 hours and 20ish minutes after the previous death.

5) His enchanter buddy. Is in the 30's and will agro on you if you are below about level 42. (don't know exactly. I know a level 41 was attacked, I wasn't at level 49)

Aye i killed him last night for the second time , onley this time i got the earing and yes it is a permanent effect.

what faction do you loose when you kill hadden?
still dropping
# Apr 20 2001 at 11:56 AM Rating: Decent
i have heard rumors that they nerfed this drop.
i have killed him 7 times in 3 days and nothing. My past times of killing him i got the earring 1 out of 2 or 3 kills. Anyone know anything

Gawd I hope they didn't nerf this drop.

It's hard enough that you have to deal with the faction hit now the drops. Kill him 10 times before it drops and you'll never see Qeynos again.

The more Verant thinks they are improving the game, the more we think it's annoying.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jul 14 2001 at 5:23 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) lol... i've always wondered why the people making the calls don't play the game to see how goddamned annoing it is for us to get something good, then have it taken away. like in karnor there was a thing called a Etherexistents Staff. 5/10. It was right when Kunark came out. It lasted for 2 weeks... coincidently right after Kunark peek sales stopped... hmm what companies will do to sell a product. I think Verant's done more buttfukkin' than Microsoft ever has = )
watch out

Camped him for 45 miniutes and pop.. killed hadden and got the earing... watch out for the guy by the fire with his pet... once you attack hadden he comes over and starts to attack you.. he has very tough spells... once i killed hadden i zone.. dont want to lose too much faction killing the other guy and his pet too ...
He spawns right in front of the guy named Axe (something) in the building... good luck

#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 18 2001 at 10:36 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) WRONG
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 15 2001 at 6:15 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) It's not permanent. it's triggered. with unlimited recast. Not the same thing.
RE: Permanent Effect
# Feb 20 2001 at 12:33 AM Rating: Default
What the hell you talking about, Anador? Next time look up your facts before posting. This is a permanent effect when equiped in ear slot. NOT triggerd.
RE: Permanent Effect
# May 07 2001 at 5:37 PM Rating: Good
I stand corrected. However when I made the post I was reading what was listed at the top of the page under type. It says triggered there with unlimited charges. Or at least it did at the time I made the post.

Here's a tip - never trust what that field says, more than half the time it's wrong. If you don't have one yourself just believe what other people say
