Got em and they sat in bank for about 2 weeks until I saw someone camping him for the knuckles. So I gave them to her.
Woot! It still drops as of today.

I'm so happy that I just got this baby, so to tell you guys that it still do drops off Death Caller Joepla as of this date,20 May 2004.

After 10+ hours of camping Death Caller Joepla spawn point and killing 5 of the PHs in a row, I got tired and went for a bath. Came back and guess what... I saw Death Caller Joepla with a sparkling green item on hand, boy am I excited.

Good luck to the rest of you out there, key to this Lesser Knuckles of Serenity is to have much patience.

These knucks go for 15k-18K on the Tunare server. But the sheer amount of time for this annoying camp, and the extreme rarity of the drop, I think these things should be worth way more. After doing the camp myself for 2 weeks, I gave up when I found them in the Bazaar for 14,995pp. These knucks are so cool because they have the same graphic as the Delighful Orb of Forgotten Magic, except it is green with little green sparkly things. If you have both of these equipped it looks just awesome. Not to mention the mean damage that the combo makes together. Now if I could only find an aug from LDON that will allow these bad babies to proc....ultimate uberness!!!

has anyone seen or heard of greater knuckles of serenity? these are pretty decent, and im a big fan of the graphic :P unfortunately i have better. i imagine greater knucks would be really really nice, but theres no sign of em anywhere on the allakhazam database. just a thought really, hopefully theyre out there somewhere. GL in the hunt for these all you monkeys and beasties!

sigh, have been in Nurga with my cleric for many hours, camping several of the named--including our boy Joe here, and have yet to see them. :o( Want them for my bl, as she has lousy weapons right now (still using a polish ulak, which she is complaining about--but my main is a 65 cleric and I've been spending all my spare plats on getting spells for HER, so poor little bl is left out in the cold) But I keep hoping I'll get these one day.

Well, after 5 days straight, 3-5 hours a day, finally got my knuckles. Was doing Nurga for faction and exp, decided to do most of it near his spawn. Few guildies joined me for the faction and some exp leeching.

During one of our passes, ran back cause it was about respawn time for old DC Joe, and WALA...he is there and holding the Green Sparklie fist =))) got it to my monk afterwards and within 15 minutes in PoK, was offered 11k by a passing monk. Nope, my monk still has it on =) Now if I had someone actually offer 20k...would be a hard decision.

GL to all that try for him. If ya can, get the other named nearby while you wait for respawn...or get a few other friends to join and pwn the zone =) About 1 blue tick per dark blue kill at level 62.

I was there for about 3 PH spawns and then he popped with them in hand. Has a really nice look - green sparkles that float out. Looks like an epic or something. I get so many compliments on it and I've been offered up to 15k to sell it.

I seen one being sold for 20K in the bazaar today.
Personally, I wouldn't pay that. The mob itself (on my server) is on a constant farming. How long ya think a mob can be farmed before the prices go down?

There are better or equal weapons for a whole lot less.

BTW...the person who was selling the item NIJA looted it from a party my guildies where in.
That is, after they droppped, he looted the knuckes and then gated out of the zone.
If it wasn't for a passing Paliden, I would haver personally had to have gone and help them get back out of Nurga.

OTSWEGO...level 59 necro
Avoid him like a plaque
Guild he is in is: VERITUS ARCANUS.

RE: Pricing
# Nov 04 2004 at 3:39 PM Rating: Decent
You are missing the point. The level req on these is extremely low. No required level, and the reco level is just 43. For the dmg ratio on these, that makes them one of the best weapons for a monk/beast between lvls 35-60, when you replace them with Velium Inlaid Claws or raid gear.

Sure, there is better gear out there, but for certain levels, these are the best and very inexpensive.

You should try spelling my name right in the first place James, secondly my guild too. Thirdly they weren't ninja'd and didn't gate. So try not to post false information, k thx.

And people are allowed to sell them for what they want to. Called Supply vs. Demand. If someones price is outrageous dont pay, people wont buy them.

So try not to post false information and try to fix your spelling.

"There are better or equal weapons for a whole lot less."

Like what? WLK sure, but you need a secondary h2h as a Bst too since that is the only weapon skill that goes up to 250.

Camped this guy today for atleast 18hours, only had him spawn 7 times and each with nothing but the scroll and Staff. How rare is the knuckles exactly? anyone have a drop ratio? Any help will be most appreciated. Smiley: disappointed
RE: Rarity?
# Aug 29 2003 at 3:56 AM Rating: Decent
This Camp is EVIL! Pure Utter Evil! Stay Away ! Spent Several Hours again today! and NOTHING! it was even worse then before cuz i only got him to pop twice out of all of it....WARNING!

To what I hear is when he drops the Knuckles...he will show them.

I feel your pain...spent about 10 hours there tonight. He popped 3 times...had the scroll and staff everytime.
I found that if you kill the least amount you have to you can catch 3 more rare areas while trying to nail this guy.
--> I pulled to the little hallway right past his spawn area. I nailed both pathers then pulled the one at the top of the ramp on the left. Then pulled him/PH.
--> Then took out the 2 behind me and the 2 around the bend to the right.
--> Once these 2 are dead look to the right and you will see a cubby hole to the right...the middle spawn is a rare spot. (Named Blackguard ??~~dropped a decent earring and cloak) Only pull the middle spot.
--> Proceed through the little hallway to a single spawn on the left. Sometimes it was dark blue to me, mostly it was Light though. Pull into hallway cause there is another mob to the right you can agro if you get to close. Kill other mob after this one.
--> To the right is a hallway with one mob on the right handside. At the end of the hallway there is a large room. 3 rares spawn in ere..can't remember the names but ionly saw one and it dropped a shackle key of some sort.
After you finish with that run back to the first area real fast and start over again. I found the use of my JBB and Epic to be very helpful. Wis is only like 290 and my FT is a huge 1. Get some weapons for your pet and you shouldn't have any troubles keeping some mana saved back.
I hope this helped someone...this camp is frustrating but I had a lot of fun doing it :)

saw one in bazaar today for 6k
#Magnemmar, Posted: Aug 29 2003 at 12:54 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) No you didn't see one for 6k. While this weapon doesn't have the greatest general stats it does have a few aspects that will make it far more expensive than you would like us to believe.
RE: update
# Sep 02 2003 at 12:25 PM Rating: Decent
He may well have seen it for 6k, Maybe the seller was going ofr 16 but miss typed? Or the seller may just not have known the worth of this item. THese things do happen.

Also factoring any haste into the damage delay of a weapon is pretty pointless. You will have varying haste depending on your group make up and haste will effect all weapon you weild to the same degree. It is much simpler to just compare the base stats of a weapon and not go into theoretical Dam/del.

RE: update
# Sep 12 2004 at 12:53 AM Rating: Decent
6k? *Maybe*
Misstyped. But on Lanys the knuckles go for 7-10k. There are usually about three pairs selling in Bazaar, all below 10k.

While I agree that a particle effect could improve the price of an item I do find it rather ignorant of you to flame someone for seeing an item priced as he did.

And the fact that you seem to think that all of a sudden this weapon is going to be 16/20 shows a lack of thought as well. The only reason I could see this weapon selling for more than 6K is because of the person who camped it, knowing it is a ***** camp and wanting some recompense.

You also have to base prices on server as well, just because something on your server may sell for a lot doesn't mean its an EQ wide trait. Point of fact- Windblade on Veeshan server now only 10K whilst on many others they still sell for 30-45.

Got to think things through properly before flaming can commence.

So far, I have been the only person to put one up for sale in Bazaar on BB.Of course, I may not be the ONLY one, but I have never seen it up for sale yet. Anyway, I offered one for 10k and was immediately spammed with tells. It sold in under 2 minutes.The rest of the day, I saw people asking about it all over the place.There were peeps offering 16-18k for the danged thing.It is the particle effect that really sells it, I think. Not a whole lot of lvl 40 something equippable particle weapons available outside of the epics. I expect this to probably sell for near as much as the WLK until the hype wears off.

i bought these knucks for 8.5k on Lanys thanks to a loan from a kind guildie. i put them on my monk @39 and i hated them. i don't know why but it seemed like my output sucked. well they sat on my mule for over a month at 8.5k. so i banked them and decided that when i got my Ogre Bst to 40 i would let him try them on. well, i got killed while afk in the stables in CoM (note to self--don't let dog out while playing) and i needed a wep to get back to my bod. so i grabbed my green sparkles and an adamantite staff i had on my trader and got my bod. I HAVEN'T LOOKED BACK SINCE. that combo is sick for getting and keeping aggro and for DPS (at level 41 anyway). i have since moved away from lightning fast is the only way to go to better ratios. 2 t-sticks for me seem to proc like 3times per fight
which looks really cool, but when you gotta off-tank golems in CoM when they pop unexpectly, i would rather punch for 56 than to crush for 18 and pray for procs (which don't always hit for the full 81). i plan to save up for the razor edged claws (14/21), and a staff of flowing water. monks are killer toons and female humans doing almost 300 points of damage in a series (including flying kick) while looking so hot is awesome. i am almost 42 now so i only get 15/25 on these which match the 15/25 of the a-club. for my style of play, that works much better than 2 7/18 (81DD proc) trance sticks. iwanna see what my 200 str ogre does with these. i can just imagine.

This guy spawns at approx. neg 1300, neg 380. Its a little room with him or a PH (death caller) in the middle, surrounded by random mobs.

Camped this guy for 26 (!) hours now, he poped 5 times and always only had the staff and the scroll on him. Also with the recent patch his spawntime (or his PH) was changed from 12 minutes to now 20 minutes.

If you look into the room stay at the right wall and you wont agro other mobs ( even no wanderers too ). So this camp is relatively safe but boring.

I wish you all more luck than I had

I went through Nurga with someone tonight and we compared notes on named mob spawn. He told me a nice 2hb staff dropped near the Rat's room. Coming into the rat's room from the exit of zone, go strait through up a little ramp on the other side. on top of the ramp is another room, look to your right and you'll see a cubby with about 5 goblins in it. That should be where he spawns, between the sleeping ogre and the rat's room.

Death Caller Joepla spawns in the Mines of Nurga which is located in Frontier Mountains on Kunark.

He's a pretty common mob, his place holder is a Goblin Deathcaller that stands in the middle of a circle of other gobs about halfway through Nurga.

The knuckles are his rare drop, and when I say rare, I mean 1:10.

The common is a 2hb staff that has pretty decent stats.

= Enough plate boots from the rat next door to equip the other half.
= 3 levels
= KOS to indifferent in Chardok
= Not one sighting of the knuckles.

"Death Caller Joepla."

sounds like acrylia cavern, no other mobs have the "death" tags like that
