1.5 Epic Title

I've asked around in my server's "Enchanter" channel, and never gotten a response.

I've asked my Guild's Enchanters, and they can't remember.

I've finished my own 1.5, but was so excited I forgot to check.

So, for once and for all, what the heck is the Title that becomes available after completing your 1.5 Epic? And, for future reference, what's the Title for completing the 2.0 Epic?

Many thanks in advance!

This item needs to be changed from Very Rare to Rare or Uncommon. It's hardly in the very rare catagory.

I absolutely love how much SOE thinks things through sometimes. The lore on this item "Item Lore: A staff mounted with an all-seeing eye dazzles your enemies". Now if you will all be so kind to notice the appropriate skill according to Alla for using this item "Piercing". What is this a sharpened stick? Good job, once more SOE.

What is a spear? A stick with a piece of sharp metal on the end. Do you hit people with the wood? Or do you pierce them with the metal spike attached to the end?

No, it's not a sharpened stick.

It's a staff with a sharp metal topper on it. Hense, the reason you pierce people with the tip.

Perhaps you're such an uber enchanter that you don't have to swing your weapon to do damage with it... you simply wave it in your enemy's direction and the "Piercing Gaze" of the eye on top of your staff damages them...

Have an imagination and enjoy your new stick!... sheesh... be glad it's not 2HB

When Protection of the eye goes off, it lowers aggro on all mobs that you have aggro on. However, it adds you to the aggro list of all mobs in the area. So it loweres the aggro on some, and increses the aggro on all the others. Thus the epic item is seriously flawed, and many chanters who have it wont carry it, or click off the effect all the time.

You have to remember that this isnt the final item, the whole point is to keep working towards the 2.0
# Oct 21 2005 at 10:46 AM Rating: Decent
I was hoping it was just a group rune

CLR get group heal
WIZ get group resistance modifier
WAR get group HP increase

Those are only ones i've seen so far, si assumed all were group benefits... how lame, I get hit rarely enough that that arcane rune / eldrich rune keep me alive. What a waste.
what's the rune effect?
# Sep 24 2004 at 10:11 PM Rating: Decent
Can anyone better explain the Protection of the Eye effect to me? What's the 4: slot effect "Trigger on Fade" mean? Is this simply a 1.5k rune, and is it stackable? thanks

# Sep 25 2004 at 12:51 PM Rating: Good
No, if you look up the trigger on Lucy, you'll see that it's a 500 pt AE hate reducer. So when you take 1500 damage, it auto-jolts everything around you. Very nice.

(It's not "Trigger on Fade", it's "Protection of the Eye Trigger on Fade"... "Protection of the Eye Trigger" is the name of the effect and it activates when the buff fades).

RE: what's the rune effect?
# Sep 25 2004 at 10:36 PM Rating: Decent
Yup Baal appears to be correct...if a mob beats down the 1500-point rune, you proc a PB AE jolt, reducing hate by 500 points! It's not obvious to find on Lucy though, you need to look for "Protection of the Eye Trigger" or a substring.

AND if you look on Lucy's Stacking Data it does appear to stack with our normal 1950-pt. rune, no?
So that's 3450 points of runage? ...assuming you don't burn components for more.

Amazingly good, if I read correctly.

Edit: ...something else I don't understand. It appears to be instant cast, and the recast time is listed as zero. What's to keep you from clicking the crap out of it and being invulnerable?

You're forgetting the 1.5k possible Eldrich rune. We're just getting more and more shielding, because we're just that famous for pumelling.

With the new epics most of them have a 10 min recast timer. Since gates items has been able to have a recast timer on them.

# Sep 25 2004 at 1:19 AM Rating: Default
It just recast it self if it fades...example, you are POK and you want to go afk for 2 hours, you rune will still be there. So it can only go away by getting hit or you clicking it off.

This is just a guess, and I have no evidence to back it up, but from the description it sounds exactly like what Thott suggested last year in this article:

Again, just a guess.
