Just FYI for non-Wizzies:

Any class can use this, as it doesn't have to be equipped, and it can just sit in a top level inventory slot (not in a bag) and be used. You have to target yourself, have something on your pointer, and then activate this (in that top level slot) for this to work.

Old coins are for bards. They get a song that is even less trouble to use then this little gem. Just thought I would point that out.

Hi, I'm a 51 shammy who just finished gathering the ten wizzy rods. Although the rods are the start of the wizzy spell quest, I did it just for the Star of Eyes. Once I got it, I destroyed the no drop wizzy Staff of the Wheel and the Glowing Box. The Star of Eyes makes if possible for me to cast Identify on any item, even though Shammys don't normally have this ability. Plus, the quest sounded fun so I tried it.

Here are some lessons I learned along the way.

First, to cast with Star of Eyes, one must pick up the item on the cursor and place upon the Star of Eyes, then right click.

Second, to get Sulgar to actually give the Glowing Box, used to combine the ten rods, you must reply with in the following way... after hailing Sulgar, say "what staff of the wheel." After his next statement, say "what wheel case." Sulgar then gives you the Glowing Box.

Third, some of the rod locations are quite difficult to reach. I found Lower Guk especially difficult. But here is a word of advice for the Everfrost rod. Before you go under the ice through a hole, get the loc of that hole so you can find it when you come back out. Of course if you can gate, you can do that, but a melee type with the Enduring Breath spell cast on him, might run out of air if he forgets the ice hole location.

All in all, I had fun doing this quest. I gave me a chance to see places I would not normally see (like the underwater tower in Oasis).

This will tell you secret information about an item. For instance there are some quests (like this one) where you get several items that have the same name and look. ID will help seperate them apart.

I can verify that all classes and races can use the Identify effect for this item. I'm a druid and just got this today and used it sucessfully.

Well, I got the cloak as a Dark Elf, Agnostic mage. Here is what I did:

Lindara Ball of Clay Apprehnsively
Father Shared Wolf Form Indifferent
Wife Ball of Clay Apprehnsively

Now, I conned 'Ready to attack' normally. I gained faction with Eruidans prior (Warrens and Heritic Bone quest).

Note: I had invised self in Erudan becase Elemental Illusions are KOS to guards. When I traded with WIFE, I noticed that I remained invisible, so you MIGHT be able to hand in the last item invisible (invisible didnt pop like it normally does, so I remained indifferent).
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 13 2001 at 10:20 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) That would be wrong, the scepter with 1 charge of clarity 2 in MM is necro only, i tr5ied just triggering it and i wasnt able to, it would be much the same for this

All can use the effect from an inventory slot, well, at least I had a monk cast it on me, I'm about to log on and do the quest for my self, if I find out that all can't use, then I'll post a correction :)
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 01 2001 at 7:53 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) If it is Wizard only, then only wizards can use. You will get a 'Your class / race / deity cannot use this item' message
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 03 2001 at 8:37 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) He means its a triggered effect and all can use the effect, not all can equip it, dumbass.
