Crap Effect

This item is a great ranged WIS item, but it should at VERY least have Improved Healing II on it. Bah! Verant tries to make you want to twink characters, because at the level you get the equipment, it's almost useless.

you're right. that +5 wis is so totally useless, and in the range slot, no less. you can't even throw the darned thing.

if all you're looking for is the focus effect, then move along and quit your childish whining. there are other items out there with a focus effect that you'll find more useful.

This item has been downgraded from a very good Mana Efficiency II to a worthless Healing I. Great, I just spent two weeks getting one of these and found out it's crap.

Other than the Wis bonus it's worthless to me and will soon be replaced. *shakes head* Why is an item used for 1-23rd level clerics require a 40th level char or higher to acquire?

Reminds me of Ultima Online... changes, more changes, even more changes...
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 21 2002 at 5:02 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ouch! 2 weeks... I got 27aaxp points in 2 weeks, and I wasn't playing a lot. Word of the wise, you can get these quicky with a SESWNW method. Imo, level where there is a decent amount of cash or equip, and you'll not need to spend weeks getting items with a small bonus to your mana pool.

Mana Preservation - 10% Spell Mana Cost Not Complete Heal Spells

According to sources, level II effects up to spells in the 40-44 range.

Denaar on Solusek Ro will be looking for one, but with only 1.3kpp in the bank I don't know if anyone will sell to this poor soul...hehehe...

Mana Preservation II

I am a 51 Druid with Elder Spiritist Vambraces and I soloed this yesterday. It goes SE corner (if any named are there, except for the goblin raider) then SW or S Central area, (stone pit) look for up to 3 named HG there (kill normal HG if none) Then NW area, up to 3 named Burynai (Burynai Miner if no named). These names are easy to recognize on track, dont worry about remembering specific names. But you dont need to kill the named Sarnak's. (unless you want a scaled whip) I ran the cycle 3 times before Blugtugin spawned. And I was able to track him from the DL tunnel where I bound. He was near SE corner but a little north of DL tunnel. Also kill the goblin headhunters for a nice spear.
not bad

I Was Wandering The Frontier Mountains, Looking For The Human Skeleton On Track............ And this dumb gobby walked into me, so I had to beat him up.... I ALWAYS loot my kill's corpses, and I unexpectantly found this medicine totem =) I knew about it, and knew it dropped on some like incredibly rare spawn.. WOOT talk about luck =) But when trying to sell it for 4k, some guy wanted it desperatly and only had 1k, and nightshade wreath, small wisdom dierty, and Springwood Club... I lost out on the deal, since I can never sell items in the game unless they are well wanted.. took me forever to get rid of it anyways lol..... but talk about luck! hehe

As far as my own experiences go, the cycle is totally random. But remember there are 2 cycles, and this may get confusing sometimes. Overseer Miklek for example is in both cycles. For info on how to do the cycle, I suggest visiting the strategy section, there is good info and good links there. Be warned though, Blugtigin is pretty rare in the cycle, so you might be doing it a loooong time.

Had to let it out. I've done the cycle for days upon days upon days and have yet to see this dude. I've gotten many good things in the process but It's more a matter of pronciple now. Very elusive on Xegony.

You are just unlucky. I got him on my second round =)

Our group got lucky tonight. Found him and it dropped the totem on the first kill. A nice easy 5k. Good luck to you all finding him..we had 2 rangers tracking him and kept following the circle around fm and went after all the named mobs. We unfortunatly didnt find the sleeves which would have been great to get.

don t get bored and try again ! personnaly, in the cycle i was searching for varythix, and i already see blugtigin up :) . Just a important thing, some people are making that cycle, so they can take him while you are finishing last named... I saw him in SW corner, very near to DL zone... hope this help )
making the spawn
# Jun 06 2001 at 5:46 AM Rating: Decent

He's on a cycle, named goblin, named giant,
named burynai...rinse repeat. The trick is
figuring out which one the named actually is.

The first totem I got took roughly 30 minutes
to get. The problem with doing this cycle are
the number if idiots who hang out near the
goblins waiting for someone else to do the
work and kill Blutigin. I spent 7 hours one
day and had 3 killed on me (on track, off track
and suddenly there is one less druid/ranger/bard
in the zone). My advice is if you need to solo
this wait until 54 when your wolf form gives a
little extra mana and if there are people just
'hanging' out near the goblin camp leave and
come back later. Best scenerio is to have 3
trackers and drop one at giants, one at burynai
and one at goblins. As soon as one named is
killed the next one spawns within 60 seconds
and it always goes goblins, giants, burynai.
The tricks are figuring out which one is the
named and which named in the spawn cycle is up
Grand Burynai Cenobite
# May 03 2001 at 11:09 AM Rating: Decent
This is the guy you want to look for. he spawns between the OT/FM zone and the BW/FM zone. He is somewhat elusive, although I have seen him spawn back to back on several occasions... where is a mule when you need one :) He is not as tough as a regular Burynai Cenobite for some reason. I guess once you get the Grand title then you start to get full of yourself and quit practicing your alteration. He is linked I believe to either Overseer Miklek or Blugtigin, or whatever the Medicine Totem guys name is.
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 11 2001 at 12:31 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) There is some cicle thing you need to do to get this guy to spawn. My guild did it. It has to do with the corners of FM and stuff and I won the roll with a 75 hehe
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 26 2001 at 2:11 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Whats with the gloating...sheesh if someone sticks around long enough and keeps doing the cycle it will pop.. my group got one and one person sold it and split it among us. So we all got 1kpp each.. so everyone got a share.
