The effect information is correct on this item (Regeneration 1).

The picture is outdated though. It now says Regeneration 1 on the actual item.

I got one of these from a wanderer near the place where you port into the castle from the dragon statue. The high priest I guess but his name was in lower case so I thought it was a useless guy. Anyway this item I doubt is worth 26,400pp because I can't sell it for 8k on my server. If this thing was necro useable it would be like 30k at least though. :p I'd love to slap this on my necro and get all those lovely stats...

Allright, info time.

OK here's what I know

This bad boy spawns in the inner sanctum area, in the center of the room with the throne and locked floor. From there he wanders the floor. His placeholder spawns in the same place and wanders similarly. Not sure about this one, but the placeholder was able to see invisibility at least once. The Grimling Warlord also spawns in that room, in front of the throne. Hope this helps.
Just got one

OK, I was in the group with Cophrian and this was his first time in Acrylia Caverns and I wanted to add some things.

I have been here several times and this is the first time I have encountered this guy. We were in the Inner Sanctum area when this guy showed up on track. We found this guy just west of the great hall to the west of zone-in area from Outer AC. I'm assuming this guy does not have a place holder because no one was killing in that area when he popped.

The group we took him down with was comprised of 54 WAR / 61 MNK / 58 CLR / 57 SHM and myself, a 61 ranger. Monk pulled with no adds and began to tank him. Cleric CHed the monk and caught agro. I snared to get the mob off the cleric and began tanking him. I used my weaponshield discipline so I wouldn't take damage while the shaman was attempting to slow him. This guy hits hard. 409 was his max hit on me and he was nuking in the mid 600s. Even slowed this mob can deal out mean damage. I would say the fight lasted at least two minutes. Fortunately, he did not CH himself during the encounter. He dropped the Grimling Contraption and Legend of Lies. The latter always drops off the rares that I have taken down and I have no clue what it is for.

That is all the info I have to offer. Hope it helps, good luck.

K this comes from the high priest in AC , spawn can be random but i got mine from him where the blood priests can spawn

He is a cleric type mob so he nukes an CH's
hits for 450tops and has quite abit of hp guessing around 15k of it. He ch'd twice on us and after we dropped him the mask came with. I am a happy camper, he also can drop a compass which is VERY nice as well.
Legend of Lies??

Along with this Contraption, we got a book, Legend of Lies, no stats, from GHP, not during ring but normal wanderer. Any ideas what it is for? Guildmate thinks GF minor quest, but I can't find anything more on it.

int is nice for skill raising, this is an already nice mask so i wouldn't be complaining about an added bonus..

would you complain about a 5sta 50hp Effect Aura of Health mask?


but because they gave you just a little bit more to be kind, maybe to help with your skillups later on, youre gonna *****!?

Get off the boards, waste someone elses time.

I know the Aura of Health effect stacks with regen spells, but do the Aura of Health effects stack with each other?

Is it like Flowing Thought, where each stacks with the other to add up?

Or is it more like Haste, where you get *one* from an item and *one* from a spell, etc.?

Anyone know?

Aura of Health (and Battle, and a number of others) stack with themselves and other such effects, in the same manner as Flowing Thought or Vengeance. There is a cap on regen from items, however (including Fungi Tunics and the Talisman of Vah Kerrath); this cap is 30 hp/tic.
