There is no reduction in run speed due to weight in the bazaar, so you can carry as much plat as you want and not be slowed down. Before the bazaar was implamented, anyone carrying that much would have trouble walking anywhere at a decent speed, so people would generally make a trade like that while standing in front of a banker in a town.

You can still move with sow or jboots, just very slowly. It once took me an hour to walk from the bank in Highkeep to EC with 60k, only to drop less than a foot off the edge of the tunnel and get hit for 10,000 damage. =D Not fun, but getting back was alot faster.

Doesnt it seam crazy that it has -10agi and -10dex? I thought i wanted this item, the regen and armour class, infact all the stats but agi and dex are killer. The fact that it has such poor stats on agi and dex, dont think i want it. Dex is critical for a melle. Someone please explain.
RE: -10 agi -10 dex ( ? )
# Nov 21 2002 at 4:27 PM Rating: Decent
As long as you don't go under 75 in either stats, the -10 isn't a big deal at all and the 15hp/tick regen far outweighs that loss.
RE: -10 agi -10 dex ( ? )
# Nov 05 2002 at 5:04 PM Rating: Default
Monk mostly get hitted while pulling. After the Warrior,SK or whoever is the tank get hitted. The fungi Restor the few HP losed by the monky. Or when they get FD that still regenarate them.

+ 21AC still is ncie for a Monk.
Exept monk its normaly only low lvl melle ataker that use this ( when ur lvl 18 150HP minut is a lot ) and they sell it after
RE: -10 agi -10 dex ( ? )
# Sep 30 2002 at 10:37 AM Rating: Default
Well, sure it does give -10agi and dex, but thats a small price to pay for regen whenever u need it. Do you have any idea how much this speeds up recovery time after battles?? For people who enjoy soloing effectively, this is a must have. For people who would like to give their healers a break and let them save mana, this is a must have. The dex might be important for a melee, but believe me...when u put this thing on you're not gonna want to take it off =p
Oh, theres also a fungi robe and staff you can check out, those give nice stats as well as regen, though i think the robe gives a bit less. Theres also a no drop regen robe in sleepers i think thats monk only.

# May 28 2003 at 11:04 PM Rating: Default
Eh, I solo effectively, and I don't use regen except the aa ability (3 points) and darkwater pearl ring's 1hp regen. Yet i can still get up to 40% regular exp in up to an hour ^_^

Saw one the other night in bazaar goin for 62k. Anyone know the actual value of it? Cuz this site says 32k... I appreciate any info.
RE: Price Value?
# Dec 04 2002 at 8:33 AM Rating: Default
LOL, and the "actual value" of it is determined by the price the buyer is willing to pay and the seller is willing to accept. The one you mention had an actual value of 62k, as SOMEONE will buy it at that price.

From what I have seen on Morell Thule, the current price of 67k listed as I post this is pretty close. MT is running 50 to 60.

Since it was changed to the rare drop, the price has jumped considerablly. 50-60k is the norm on Tunare as well now.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 04 2002 at 11:32 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This should defintly goto a shadowknight see has +2 int they benefit the most from that oh oh oh and the -10 agi helps the shadowknights get hit more and and and and uhh they would benefit from the uh uh -10 dex so they could fizzle even better when they try to fiegn death

What is the exact regen on this per tick? I've heard 15, 16, 17 and 18. Which one is it? This would be for a 60 Ranger, standing up (not sitting).
RE: Regen?
# Sep 04 2002 at 10:10 AM Rating: Default
Yes that is correct, 15 Hitpoints per tick.

Like the regen line of spells:
Regrowth = 15 Hitpoints per tick.
Chloroplast = 10 Hitpoints per tick.
Regeneration = 5 Hitpoints per tick.
RE: Regen?
# Aug 16 2002 at 9:25 AM Rating: Decent
Effect link says 250 (L1) to 750 (L20) for 50 ticks so at level 60 you'd be 750/50 which is 15 per tick.

Muri - Item effects dont scale with your level as a rule. A Level 1 and Level 60 would get the same benefit of this.

I was wondering, why can't my Vah Shir Bard wear this? If it is big enough for an Ogre, it should fit a Vah Shir.

Remember, the slow blade penetrates the shield.
RE: Tattoo
# Jun 05 2002 at 7:46 AM Rating: Decent
Vah Shir who want this must look elsewhere... specifically, Fungus Grove.

There's a quest there titled Summoning Biesties (I believe), it's similar to the Hollowshade War quests - buy an item, turn it in to one of a few NPCs and depending on the item you bought for the quest, you get varying degrees of difficult waves of creatures.

Fungus Patch Vest
AC: +21 Str: +2 Agi: -10 Dex: -10 Int: +2
Weight: 2.0
Classes: Warrior Rogue Bard Shaman Beastlord
Races: Barbarian Troll Ogre Iksar Vah Shir
Inventory Slot: Chest
Luclin Required: Yes


Effect: Fungal Regrowth
Type: Permanent
Charges: Unlimited


Average Price: 25,000pp
Rarity: Common

Level to Attain: 55

I think it's terrific, both the manner in which it may be acquired, and the fact that it's large race only.

for you monks out there go check out an ice burrower's skin for chest you can get with a group of 55+ like this and is a lot better check it out

RE: monks
# Jun 10 2002 at 12:20 AM Rating: Decent
The Iceburrower tunic has better stats than a fungi, but monks don't wear fungi tunics for the great stats, they wear it for the Fungal Regrowth effect. Monks have low hitpoints for a melee class, and the healing power of the fungi tunic helps quite a bit with soloing. Personally, I never solo much, so I stick with my Phase Spider Carapace.

Your suggestion is a good one though, because the price of fungi tunics is ridiculously high, and if you have some friends who don't mind hunting lvl 60 mobs in Westwastes that drop nothing but the monk tunic and maybe some iceburrower silk, it'd be something to look into... Icicle Tunic from Lord Bob is also good (NO DROP, raid loot), as is Phase Spider Carapace (droppable, and moderately priced compared to fungi).

Well, if they do nerf it, it's not going to bother me much. My L 51 epic-wielding ranger uses this for soloing, and to cut down on the heals clerics have to toss my way in groups. When fighting epic mobs (ie, clearing for Avatar of War in Kael) ... this allows me to absorb the occasional 100 - 200 point hits giants seem to favor me with while awaiting final groupage (without standing there and healing myself forever and a day with my sucky ranger heal). Sure, I'm going to look into a Skyshrine BP, but you know.. since I am not a main tank, I compensated for lack of stats on my BP with other items. I'm not hurting at all. This thing is also wonderful for any kiting class (I can tank off the last of those nasty raptors and med / heal rather fast). And, standing, I do regen 18 hps / tick standing.. plus more with my own buffs.

As for monks (you knew this was coming) ... oh my goodness. I stuffed a Fungi on my boyfriend's L 10 monk and turned her loose in oasis with my SBC. :/ Damn. I finally understood why Verant was considering nerfing it =\ Low levels, it is a seriously unbalanced thing. (You know, when mobs hit you for 10 - 30 points, max 40, and you are healing 18 / tick standing?) Monks level insanely fast with this + haste + hps gear. :\ About 3 hours played, L 22 monk now.

/auc WTB monk gear~

At Casters Realm, an article dated today 4/12/02 says it is NOT nerfed.

Title of the Article is Recommended Level Explained. He uses this tunic as an example.

The lead to the link to the article says: Alan VanCouvering made a nice post summarizing SOE's position" etc...

His point near the end is: "No, we haven’t changed the Fungi Tunic on Test. However, it is possible that we will do so in the future."

So, we can trust one or the other.
nerfed? )

Nerfed on test
# Apr 11 2002 at 12:38 PM Rating: Default
See for followup posts and such, but Fungi (perhaps the best known high-end droppable item) has been nerfed on test. So far it doesn't sound SO bad. It's basically being restricted to high-level players, which I can see. If you can get a Fungi for your twink, but can't get him/her up to 50 in a fairly short while without it, you're doing something wrong anyway.

Never-the-less, an era of EQ is over in a way. Sniff ;-)
How do you use this thing?
# Apr 07 2002 at 8:09 PM Rating: Default
How do higher level characters use this thing? It's such a small amount of healing that I'm not sure what it's use is when you have a lot of Hit Points. Can anyone enlighten me please?
RE: How do you use this thing?
# Apr 09 2002 at 12:30 AM Rating: Decent
??? What ya mean how do we use it? I'm a lvl 58 Iksar Monk, my regen is like 36hp/tick sitting down..that's not a small amount. Even standing its like 18, still not a small amount. Compare my regen to a monk (iksar of course, or human.. whatever) to one without a fungi and tell me it's a small amount of healing ;p
RE: How do you use this thing?
# Apr 09 2002 at 7:38 PM Rating: Default
Hee-hee. When you're a cleric with complete healing, anything less than 1400 HP seems trivial :^p

I'm just wondering how people use it? Do they wear it all the time? Do they wear it during downtime?

# Sep 19 2002 at 8:34 PM Rating: Default
Ok As a pulling monk for my new main I have tried out my friend's fungi several times and here is why we like it so much... for those who play high lvl melees you know HP is pretty much god for non tanks like monks... well the most HP on just about any item is 100 and this is off crazy uber items. Well This item when you are soloing as a monk (which with a Fungi is as good as your average grp) gives you 150 HP a minute... most solo fights or about 2-3 minutes maybe longer. If its less than 2 its a greenie. So thats 300-450 HP thats the equiv of having it added to your total HP. If someone saw a 450 HP tunic comin out of Vex Thall it would be insane and everyone would think it had to be nerfed. Well this has the equivenlent in a way most people don't notice. Not to mention it cuts heal time to an INSANELY low amount when you are solo... I think you get the idea
RE: How do you use this thing?
# Apr 13 2002 at 5:33 PM Rating: Default
i'm a lvl 36 warrior, it's been INVALUABLE to me up till this point, and from the way things are going i'm going to have to search out something better to wear DURING the fight and save the fungi to cut down on down time, but as is now, i've done most my leveling solo, and i didn't get to start out uber twinked, i got a fungi and CoF from someone for stuff in another game and this is my highest EQ character

i'd say keep it on till the healing doesn't outheal the damage output from the mob, or somewhere in the 30-40 lvl range, then try to find something with better stats and AC and reserve the fungi for down time

I got a fungi for my malee class
let me put a few things straight here.
1. the fungi as u can see as poor stats.
2. its on with the heal but at later lvls MMmm ?.
3. some people think its healing 21per clikc sitting its not at all its 15 per click sitting. so thats 15 on top of what u would of healed with out it, so your natrol heal per click + 15.
4. the prices im seeing here must be out dated or im unsereton all i can say is on sullon server i payed 6k. after asking around and people alwas seemd to say its worth 6k i disided to pay that. mind u sullon is a serverwhere everything seems a difrent price to other servers ?.. good luck with the fungi. good for rogu and not bad for warrier

Actually my troll warrior is rather fond of his, it lets him solo. Take a fungi, a RBG, a couple decent weapons, and some jboots and warriors can solo about as effectively as any class that can't feign in outdoor situations. Works like this: stick baddie with an arrow, stand somewhere that other baddies won't roam up on ya, wait for baddie to get there, beat on baddie till one of you is almost dead, if the almost dead one is you then run around in circles till yer less dead than the baddie and finish it off.

As a 52 troll warrior with basicly crappy gear aside from what I listed up there I can solo most any 49th or lower non-caster mob outdoors like this. It's about as fast as a good group xp wise and if you go linkdead you probably die but it beats switching to your druid or necro if you feel like soloing.

Yes it dose regen that fast and it is one of the most saught after chest pieces by melee that is in game at this time. That is why it is worth 30K and some say as much as 50K, ( Server and buyer dependant ). You are correct though some of the stats are not as good as some, but when you are regening as fast or faster than taking DMG then it all balances out. It makes down time less of a pain, as you are never down long.

Hope that I answered your question....=)

As soon as I get home I think I will play EQ like made and try to lvl from 13-50 in about one week "with no sleep if I have to"..=)

Hey, although i am not 100% on this i dont think that the Fungi tunics have been made no drop. Instead of being very Rare i think they are now Ultra rare.

As for the prices i paid 43K for mine on Karana server (Thanks to my brothers) although i am away from home at the moment and unable to play everquest, i was speaking to my brother the other day and some sat in EC and put a "WTS Fungi Tunic 100K".....thats a hell of a lot of pp to pay for a fungi tunic.

It does depend on your class whether or not you can solo from lvl 1-60 if you have a fungi tunic Rogue's soloing with a Fungi comon it's only a 17hpt "i think if i remeber right" not invincibility Rogues get there butts whooped when trying to solo...=)

Are you kidding me, I am a ROGUE who can solo with NO HASTE ITEM, a CEREMONIAL IKSAR CHESTPLATE, and a bloodpoint AT LEVEL 51! And I am invincible, can handle 2 things at once and haven't ever died. Anyways, if you cannot solo easily with a fungi tunic at any lvl below 53, you deserve to have your account deleted and the same goes for the moron that ebayed it to you (no, I am not talking about YOU, just a theoretical person who cannot solo with a fungi tunic.)

Really, a 6 pt regen and the occassional 80 pt lifetap is more than enough. And with jboots I pretty much never die. Gotta be honest though, can only handle light blues and low blues...hehe. And two at a time just means I will actually have to sit for a bit.

A week ago, there were 12 people selling fungi's on Xev. I wrote down all their names and prices, cause I was shopping around for another. They were going for 30-40k. All of a sudden, they dissappeared and the few that have reappeared, peeps are asking 55k and above for them, LOL. One guy started auctioning one today at 45k, then his next auction tell, he upped it to 55k. Just don't buy them. The prices will come down soon enough. BOYCOTT FUNGI'S LOL

Yeah, the 'original' Fungi was heavily nerfed...I have not seen it drop on Brell Serilis in a few weeks myself (my guild camps it all the time). I wonder if it has been permanently replaced with one in Luclin, which you have to be lev 51 and above to use...
