Figured id take a gander to see if the quest for these things was ever fixed. Dosnt seem to be. they do exist however are exceedingly rare. They used to be a quest item from north karana, if i recall you had to turn in so many griffon skulls to an NPC and then a few other hand ins and those were the reward. however the griffon skulls are still removed from the loot tables to my knowledge.

My enchanter got thest today from a GM event in POK, GM looked like a water elemental and made me bow before him and give him fishing grubs and that was it!!! Had to give this item to a Druid Friend of mine but I also got 5 Diamonds. This was on Solsek Ro Server.

Well, you can and can't say that they drop in the game anymore. There is no quest for them nor does any mob drop em'. The only way to aquire these is if by chance, you come across a GM event and they're either handing them out or making you kill/quest for it ... but it only happens when there is an event.

Anyhow, got me a pair of these. I know I'll be using them for quite awhile, don't think I'll ever sell ... kinda like a collectors item lol.

For those who wonder: this item is still in the game. It dropped yesterday (June 2nd, 2003) on Firiona Vie after a GM-event in The Overthere.

Ekros, a 54 Ranger, got them.

Grats to him for slaying the dragons.
Item still in game

The item is definately in the game. I just dropped 40K for them on Drinal. Now, weather or not they can still be obtained via quest is another matter.
I have a pair.

I have a pair of these on Kane Bayle. I traded a Lodizal Shell Shield for them and honestly feel the guy that I traded with got ripped off bad. I'm told that the quest was removed from the game, or that at least these are no longer the reward. This occurred around April of 2002 prior to KB going live. My epolets entered Norrath via a GM event. Hope this helps and if anyone can clarify the status of the quest/reward, please post.


(Edit)PS, if you would like to see them for verification, I play on Kane Bayle, name is Oyster. Feel free to contact me.

not around..

Ok, back when i played my shammy this was one item i constantly auctioned for. I offered to pay 5k JUST to see them, no luck. Well i got desperate and started to talk to everyone i knew with a knowlege of items and looked on all the sites. The drop area varied from the GM even where The Hole 1st opened, to POA.

Well this is finally what i got..after talking to GM's who had no idea (even the head server gm). i finally got a reply from Absor i think it was (not sure, it was some time ago) that this item was a Beta item and went poof along with beta. so it no longer exists. a good indicator that its a pretty darn old pic is that it doesn't have a size (this was pointed out to me by absor).

About a year ago when i got the reply on the boards it was also posted on caster's seems i wasnt the only one searching for this item, hehe.

Anyway, sorry, this item is no longer around, i guess it was too good so they left it in beta. On the good side, they did say this would be a good GM event item, so you never know!

happy hunting

Shammy's using cannabalism while a cleric has PoG greaves is Nice and worth using it in that case!
not a fake

deffinately not a fake, the person posting prolly screwed up on the location or sumptin.
Seems fake..
# Aug 17 2001 at 3:55 AM Rating: Default
No, I'm not saying it is fake, but if you look at it from how I am.. it looks fake. 1) its an armor drop that isnt used for a quest and is droppable, no piece of armor thats not used for a quest in PoA is droppable. The only droppable items are some of the easy stuff for quests and maybe some crap off of the efreeti. 2) its listed under kunark.. I never knew PoA was put in with the Kunark expansion! /snicker 3) i've been to PoA countless times, for a very long time now and have never heard of these. Sorry, but untill i see them i wont believe its a real item.

You seem to make a great point about the Kunark required section. But I just ran across Torklar's Battlehammer which drops in Unrest. But the NPC who drops it was added to the game during the Velious patch. Similar situation might have occured for these Epolets.

You must be on drugs Jedce.. A shaman not cannabilize sheesh...
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 10 2001 at 4:13 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Shaman dosent have lesser mana then any other caster. If a shaman have 150wis and druid have 150wis is that the same mana. BTW I have 199wis =)
RE: Venedar
# Jul 06 2001 at 1:55 AM Rating: Default
I think what he means about shamen having less wis than others is cause most shaman races have less base wis than druid/cleric races. Just my 2cp
#Anonymous, Posted: May 26 2001 at 9:11 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) again you all seem to get off the subject. Just frekin say where it is and who drops it. Dumbasses

#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 23 2001 at 6:43 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ok it no drop, and is possibly the most incredible druid shoulder piece EVER> this has to cost like 9999999pp.

I've only seen two, and the ones that have it won't part with it for ANY price.
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 02 2001 at 8:50 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) If you have them - which is interesting considering that lvl 42 will NOT get you into any planes - then it's a TOTAL waste. This item is clearly a caster item, and if you would have won it on amy lotto over the casters, then yer simply a greedy. This item would be most useful to shamans, since from all WIS casters they have less WIS anyway, and dang spells are drain a lot of mana...

Rangers and Paladins are WIS casters you twit.
RE: ok. price
# Jul 18 2001 at 7:01 PM Rating: Decent
I must disagree on being for casters. Being a Paladin its very important to have a high wisdom. Mostly for the mana pool at higher lvls. I would love to have this item and I wouldnt feel guilty for having it or feel greedy for that matter. Just to get to the planes is an accomplishment in itself, so anything gained there is well earned.

THere is a reason why Shammys have less mana than the other Wis-Based casters.. its called Cannibalism
RE: ok. price
# Jun 17 2001 at 8:28 AM Rating: Default
you must be on drugs...just becuase shamen have canib doesnt mean we want to use it...and even at can 3...the mana to health ratio trade off isnt all that rather have high wis and not use canib than have lower wis and use it

If my calculations are correct, with KEI and Canni, I regen mana at about 132mana PER TICK.

Surprise me that you have made it past 30 without coming to understand the power of Canni. Go get yourself an Iksar chestplate someime and you will see some of the true power on these spells, I admit that with just our regen spell it seems to be almost worthless at those lower levels.

And if you pay attention IG at all, you should know that Manastones are considered a God item. They rule. Well, I knew this long before I found what they do for ya. They are just a no cast time, weak, low mana/health ratio Canni. Ayup, everyone PAYS OUT THE @$$ for what we get as a class.

I resent that Ranger comment. No, we are not MT's, no we don't have FD, but if we are smart, snared late, know when to slow down on melee, and know when to back off, we live.

As for the item... it's a nice Ranger item :)

#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 04 2001 at 1:50 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) First of all, its a waste on a warrior second you to low to even go to Air at 38.. unless you got a higher char, doubt you even have it
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 07 2001 at 4:10 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) if you are tired of useless posts why did you just post this one! You said nothing except flame, now THAT is a useless post, I have seen them on a Shaman with my very first character when i first started palying, cause i looked them up and thought how cool they would be, and made a shaman . they exist they would probably sell in the 50k area, but would be overpriced due to rarity.
