If ya wanna call it nerfed

I got the Girdle tonight (8/11/05) so it is still dropping. For those of you who think it was nerfed/removed cuz you haven't seen it, that's just crappy luck. Think about the effect on the belt.... the stats alone are sick, and the +8 Mana regen/+5 Regen OVER-CAP is just ridiculous. They prolly had the drop rate WAY too high initially and just were tweaking it to where it should be.... a very rare drop since it's so good. How many people say the Fero Neck is gone just cuz they've seen 10 Despair's drop in a row? It's just luck of the draw folks, and of course the most awesome stuff is gonna drop less often.

Has this drop been nerfed or removed fro this trial?

I have had it done at least 12+ times now and no girdle drop?

Anyone have any info?

It has not been removed. An enchanter from my guild on Xegony got one 2 or 3 nights ago.

Hey, noticing the same thing here on MS server.
We've done this trial at LEAST 15+ times at this point, no belt.... Blunts and Masks. So, either a MAJOR nerf on drop rate or...removed. But then I wonder why a diff item has not replaced it.

Could others PLEASE post their results with this. Have you seen a belt in the last couple weeks??? Would really appreciate feedback from others.

The zone AE used to be every five minutes and DA would block it. Now, if you DA as it starts, it keeps casting until everyone in the group is effected. Not curable.

It's minus 3500(up to 50%)of your hp, mana and endurance. So it's important to have the dps to finish the rounds early, so casters can med up a bit between waves.
statts aoe

decrease manapool by 3500
decrease end by 3500

so aoe is just making u really crappy again make sure the cleric has atleast 8k mana unbuffed

of course it does.
tough stuff

Did this trial the other day. There is a zone wide AE that takes like 6k mana away from you & 6k endurance, the trial wants to see how Efficient you are after all, but, it is resistable with bard DA, however, if you use bard DA the zone will hit you with it again in a few moments so there is no point in trying.

The AE is every 5 minutes, and bard DA will block it. The first AE goes off after a few seconds once the trial starts. DA the group and have someone start the trial, set your stop watch. Every 5 minutes after that DA the group and you avoid the AE. Our bard messed up the DA song once and normal cleric DA allowed me to avoid the AE while rest of group ate it.
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 17 2004 at 8:45 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) My god remember the days where you thought you were the luckiest person in the world if frenzy spider dropped a SCHW for you. Now you can stroll in with your guild buddies and pick up raid gear in a single group with effects you used to have to kill Quarm to get. Not really complaining since trials are pretty much idiot proof meaning idiots aren't gonna be getting stuff they don't deserve anyway, unless they are twinked...
