Ceremonial Iksar Chestplate is 12 tics and Fungi is 17 tics. Hope it helps

Iskar BP is only 5 per tick.

Iksar BP is 6, not 5 =)
RE: Tics

the Ceremonial Iksar Breastplate is effect: Regeneration. a 5 per tick regen. add 1 to that for non-regening classes. And 2 for Trolls/Iksars. Thus making it 7 per tick standing for Regening classes, and 6 for non. Fungi tunic is 15 per tick, plus the added natural regen. At higher levels, regening races can go 12 per tick without something like this.

15+12=27 hps per tick sitting down. Think of a troll/Iksar with that...

Look, i'm a Iksar necro! See lich, its barely touching me!

(of course, necros cant use it =P)
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 07 2001 at 4:02 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I got this tunic 2 weeks ago. I traded an Imbued Fighters Staff and an FBSS for it. This is the best monk tunic in the game. This or the Phase Spider Carapace. Whats really amazing is that this tunic gives me a total of 30ac even though it has -10agi. -10dex doesnt mean much to me because I don't have a weapon that procs. Having 900+AC at lvl 44 is very nice. I barely ever get scratched. This is a very nice tunic and it looks awesome one me. (Iksar Monk). I got this when I was lvl 40 and I earned it all on my own. Good Luck!

#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 10 2001 at 12:44 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Not trying to bash you or anything, but how did you "earn it on your own" when you traded items for it? Did you earn those by yourself or buy them?
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 10 2001 at 3:22 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) if u don't mean to bash, y say anything at all? u just come across sounding bitter and resentful. sour grapes if u will. it's a really big assumption that someone didn't "earn" thier equipment.
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 25 2001 at 11:38 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) OK This guy is a lvl 40. He didn't EARN it. He bought it. I don't care if he did great buying/selling to get the plat up to make the purchase (which is doubtful that ANYONE who won this would sell it). The point is if you earn it, you were there for the camp, fought the mob, and won the roll. Hell my 40 monk has an fbss. I was at that camp a lot and one never dropped. I eventually bought one. I didn't earn it, i bought it. I don't feel like waiting 3 hrs to get in a group and camp something that may RARELY drop. Not how I want to spend my EQ time. There are places that are better exp than lguk that's not as camped. Hell, I've put in 40+ hrs in the Raster camp and that sucks as it is, but there isn't a way around that one.

#Anonymous, Posted: Sep 11 2001 at 8:22 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) So the stuff I bought with the profits I earned from spending months in the jewelry shop (while my guildmates were all off hunting) to get my jewelcraft skill up to 250 means I didn't earn my equipment, whereas somebody who waltzes into a dungeon like Seb and in one day gets an item worth 30k earned it?

Why does everyone assume that when someone questions another's statement do they automatically think it's a bash then a honest question? This is how flaming starts...always assuming for the negative.

Yes, I am sure we have all gotten stuff at lower prices or from handouts...but a FUNGI TUNIC you would never seen given. And that is what I was trying to say that this item is awesome. Just wanted to understand the initial guys comments of first saying he traded stuff for it, then he earned it on his own. If I understand that, then maybe I can work my way to get one when I get to his level.

Fungi Tunic
# Jul 28 2001 at 7:01 AM Rating: Decent
This Tunic is Fantastic. It will not win you all your fights but it cuts downtime to a minimum. My Monk has solo'd to 30 with this. To take reds melee until low on hp then FDeath. As you regen to full you can then re-engage mob.

# Aug 30 2001 at 11:22 AM Rating: Default
If you have sow, just run around in a few circles, currently soloing Gnolls in SK with mine. Traded an Oggok Cleaver for it, which in my mind, is an awesome trade

If anyone of you has this item and wants to get rid of it or trade send me a tell on the Bristlebane Serer... name is Wikawillgay. I've got a really nice twinked Enchanter i can give you most of his gear for it. so if your creating a chanter or a CASTER INT class let me know, with his gear his INT is at like 210 and his CHA is at like 150, and hes still got some slots open to put stuff. Send a tell or msg me on AIM: Krashx6 Thanks!
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 14 2001 at 1:24 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This is 15hp/tick some people claim 18 and that is true with natural sitting regan. Real nice item with decreasing benefits as you raise in levels. Not quite as Godly as people may lead you to believe. Have a druid cast the 15hp regan spell on you to check it out(no -10's with that) Better yet do what I do ...have my druid casting 20hp/tick regan from my laptop along with all other buffs, easy to get any char to level 10 in a couple hours.
RE: 15hp/tick
# Jun 17 2001 at 8:52 AM Rating: Default
I have to agree, it is great for getting chars up to the mid - high 20s but after that it makes little difference in combat. no level 30 is going to solo yellows just because they have the tunic on. It does work well if you partner with a non healer type. Probably its best use at high levels is keeping you alive as you run to the zone.
RE: 15hp/tick
# Jul 11 2001 at 1:11 AM Rating: Decent
I disagree. I used this tunic to level to 45 solo by killing animals in EW using panick animal. I never have to heal myself. I fight until I'm oom (about 10 or more fights) then I med to full. Without this tunic I wouldn't level half as fast. I was getting about a level every 3-4 hours excluding level 40 and 45.

edit: it adds +15hp to whatever your natural regen rate is.
RE: 15hp/tick
# Jun 19 2001 at 5:39 PM Rating: Default
Well, my former BP was a stonewood mail from POG 30 ac 10 str 50 hp. I chose to use this one because I figured the regen would give me 150 extra hp in a minute, but 9 ac wouldn't make that much of a difference when I was getting hit (Tis less than 1 percent of my total AC after all :P). When / if I get my Deepwater BP I will probably switch back :)
RE: 15hp/tick
# Jun 18 2001 at 11:09 AM Rating: Default
I used this tunic on my warrior throughout his 30's and early 40's to solo giants in FM and Yetis/Drovs in DL. I disagree with the thinking that this is not useful at hire levels, I have escaped numerous close deaths through the regeneration of this tunic (namely a failed Kedge raid and a misadventure in Mistmoore) and this tunic enabled me to survive a failed raid on Nagafen when cleric were told to evac and had to leave the tanks behind. The only tank survivors were myself and a monk who put on their tunics when the retreat order came. This item is priceless at any level.

Ok i seen alot of you guys talk about it's regen exactly how much is it? and is it 5 tick or 6 tick per regeneration? HELP ME

P.S. Hmmm do you think a naked monk with this on is moreful than super twinked monk with out this?
RE: Proc?
# Jun 10 2001 at 10:23 PM Rating: Default
Around 20hps per tick, not sure exactly though. The Iksar Ceremonial BP is 5-6 hps per tick.
My friend let me borrow both of these. But took them back. : (

The plural of "shaman" is "shamans." It's not a word with Anglo-Saxon origins, therefore "man" doesn't need to change to "men".

Both "shaman" and "shamans" are acceptable. Shamen, however, is not.

1. this tunic looks like chainmail

3. it's not right clickable
4. it doesn't snare you, it has a slowing effect (-10agi , -10 dex aka offensive stats)
5. This tunic is freaking awsome
6. This tunic is the best monk tunic around, how can you beat regenning like mad while you're FD'd with the mobs on top of you?
7. did i mention this tunic is freaking awsome?

Someone wanted my Phase Spider Carapace and I got this in return. I miss my carapace, but I doubt I'll ever give this fungi up! Back to DN for another carapace. I fight with this on and notice no difference in my warrior ability and I was one of those agi/dex nuts. High agi and dex helps, but the -10 is no biggie. And I know the regen has gotten me outta trouble when the cleric is oom. Going to sell my embalmers knife and not ever worry about bandaids again. Well maybe not, I'll bandaid the folks who are unfortunate enough not to have this great BP.
Amazing Item

I was in Lake of Ill Omen grouped trying to hit lvl 24, when I saw an even ogre warrior (lvl 22) soloing Sarnaks one by one. He would pull one, kill it, then immediately pull another. I shrugged it off as a regen buff. But an hour later, I /who him and he was lvl 25! I walked up to him and "accidently" inspected him. Sure enough he had the Fungus Tunic equipped. His life never went below 60% while soloing. I'm now lvl 31 and he is currently lvl 56. Cheating? Cheap? Laziness? Who cares, I want one!

LOL!! That happened exactly in the same way to me!! I was in Cazic-Thule zone and there was a level 25 or so rogue fighting there, so i asked if i could join her. I joined and all i had to do was cast haste and she could solo everything at once without having to worry about health!!
I am now level 32 and she is level 54 rake !! Cheating, laziness, twinking? I want one still !!

RE: Fungi Tunic
# Apr 06 2002 at 2:39 AM Rating: Decent
You are an idiot. Verant themselves have listed the bonuses of each stat.

AGI - ups defensive skill increases and adds a small amount of AC (I think around 1 for every 6 agi)
DEX - ups offensive skill increases and adds to chance to proc
STR - Adds to carrying capacity and base ATK. Also factors into max damage
STA - Adds to breathing capacity and raw HP
INT - ups all skill increases and adds to int caster mana pools
WIS - adds to wis caster mana pools
CHA - affects chance to charm and affects prices

That's it

I was lucky enough to get one of these with my higher level monk. I created a warrior and gave it to him. At 13th with a Yak and Icetooth claws yesterday I soloed a Red Wooly Mammoth in Everfrost. :) Well with a little help from SOW and running from one end to the other three times to allow for the regen to take place, but yes I soloed the mammy. :) By far the best item I've ever had, no down time at all.

Prolly one of the best items in the game to my eyes. even the standing up rate is so phenomenal that it makes it possible (i have seen this done) to hit 17 in a day. And the guy was a dwarven pally.

Enchanters hitting him with mana sieve style spells work far better then trying to stun him. Enchanters should not attempt to slow him at any level. it is not uncommon for adds to come depending on your break. so make sure you leave yourself some left over for mezz. i try and sieve 2 bubbles worth of my mana not counten mana tap and it works well.
