15 second cast time, not 8. Still a pretty nice chanter item.
Two groups of 65 level players killed him with ease. Not even a 5 minute fight. Toughest part is getting to him. Ice is slippery you know.

Only Problem of doing "AE" is the cast time, i have the crown and its more like a toy effect.... or for fun pulling an orc camp or derv camp in commons.

Casting Time is too long.

The stats on the crown are nice, but dont even think you are going to use the effect. It takes about 15 or so secs to cast color skew. I have yet to think of a use for this spell at a 15 sec cast time.

ohhhh i dunno but how about maybe a mana free stun when fighting mobs you cant sit around because of causing instant agro.

Actually, color skew costs what? 40m to cast and cast time is 1.5 seconds or so? A 15 second cast time for ae stun is too long, you could have cast multple stuns the old fashioned way in that amount of time. And 40m can be regened pretty fast with kei and potc on while standing. If this item in fact does take 15 seconds to cast its effect, the effect is virtually worthless (except rare instances of OOM). Now the stats on the item more than make up for any problems with the effect...

Easy to find...HARD to get,
Velketor's is a zone off of Great Divide, Velketor is the boss, We had a group of me(50 druid) 55 warrior 57 monk 53 shammy and 53 cleric and we had a hard time GETTING to the keep part, lvl 53 MOB's there, all the floors are ice and DMF nor lev work and are stripped when you zone in, Monk slipped off Edge into Velketors lap, got hit for 850/450 and his guardians were nailin him for 280. Needless to say he was dead before the Feign death could drop him to the ground, one last thing, he is a sorceror so I am betting his casting is better than his melee...WATCH OUT

Actually, from what I've heard... ALL stun spells are prohibited on a Velketor Raid... and the math kinda makes sense...

I'm sure any person with aggro would like him to waste his time casting for 500 dmg to possibly resisted nukes, than have him beating you down for 1500-2k fist damage.

While we were fighting he ninja looted this and ran away. Wasn't the first time either. I hear now that after a group destroyed that big turtle in iceclad, he ninja'd that too while they were protecting a fallen friend.

Time for me to be /rude as well.

You see, I myself do not understand why you
have to be the only one with it Qucay. This
is an Enchanter only item, no drop. It will
only help Enchanters. The object of these
message boards are to help others, not to say
"my toys are better than your toys". I do like
reading boards though and came across something
I thought was interesting.

"I got the crown off of Velketor the Sorcerer. Nice stats, but unfortunately the cast time on Color Skew is about 15 seconds.

Now, my question is, Qucay, if you are willing to give the information away at another place. Why do you have to be so secretive of it here?

Now, wether what he posted is correct or not, I do not know, could have been to get people to die in a very dangerous area. I am no where near the level to find out. Perhaps some of you others can check it out, and post back?
RE: morons

Guess I dont understand the chanter bashin.

Qucay is a chanter, lvl 60 on MM, member of Afterlife. The place I saw the screenshot of this item was on the AL web page. I would imagine that whoever posted this got it from there.

And as to the other....what info about the crown is missing here? Seems pretty well covered to me.....did I miss a post somewhere?

No, there are many quests in PoG. I found one for clerics, paladins, and mages while I was there.

RE: drop
# Dec 12 2000 at 7:08 PM Rating: Default
Guys, People earned this by trailblazing. By being the first out there. They've been nice enough to even tell you it exists. Maybe they want you to actually get out and explore a little while the land isn't fully documented, anyalized, and over camped. I wish my cd would have arrived on time so that I could go out where I had no clue where I was going, where I had to bring a group with me to get there... And I'm sure the very few people that have this item hold it in high prestige, and don't want a lot of people to get them
#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 12 2000 at 6:11 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Would someone please post a mob or Loc for this. I t does no good to give stas and not where to look.
RE: drop
# Dec 12 2000 at 10:44 PM Rating: Default
sure it Does Anonymous, discover for yourself, did anyone tell Qucay where to look? most likely not. He took a group into Velious, kicked some MAJOR ***, took down some names, and licked their butts, and looted 'em. Nobody told him what to do. Get out and kick some butt!

# Oct 01 2001 at 6:44 AM Rating: Default
Ok, the eternal mackster, you are real dumb. Quacay or whoever this guy is, is some guy who plays EQ way too much. It did not take a lot of skill to pull this off. It wasn't just him, it was his guild. They went in and probably spent many hours working their way up to velketor. They did not trailblaze, some non-uber people had to venture too far in and die and tell them about it. Guaranteed they did not discover an ancient map with clues and hints about a great sorcerer named Velketor, and set out to find him. they knew where he was
RE: drop
# Dec 16 2000 at 10:57 PM Rating: Default
No, you're probably right in saying that
no one told him where to go. But, in perusing
enchanter forums of other boards, I did happen
to come across this.

"I got the crown off of Velketor the Sorcerer.
Nice stats, but unfortunately the cast time on
Color Skew is about 15 seconds.

It was in a thread where no one at all asked
for the location of the crown, simply asking
if anyone had seen this, trying to make sure
people knew it was out there. It was very
nice of Qucay to post here the stats and
info. To ignore the requests for location
on this site, and to be very snippish about
it when he did answer, then to turn around
and give it out so freely at another location,
well that makes him... never mind, you can come
up with the adjectives on your own.

#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 12 2000 at 2:25 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I only have one thing to say...this better not end up being on of those 3 day dropping items like the sarnak ceremonial bracer, put into the game as some evil trick by verant to give enchanters a "wood" just so they can come by and smash it with a tackhammer!!!!!!!!

The Sarnak Ceremonial Bracer no longer drops in game. They moved around Kunark item drops and that one got moved right off Norath.

I believe this is the Planar vesion of the Enchanter armor. Quest armor is suppose to have same EXACT stats from what info is available.
