Got mine, along with Rodrick's Head, and the Dirk of the Traitor, off Rodrick who is found in that little enclosure outside the Orc Fort. Stands there with the Orc Emissary.
does the effect stay after taking beard off?

If you put this on, click to get berserker strength, can you take it off (unequip) and still keep the effect? Is is the same for the giant frost beards too with their effect.

Ummmm dude mana is free.. Don't be stingy..I buff for Freel all the time.. I have found that friends are easy to come by that way...You must be one of thoes that sits around and shoute SOW' s and buffs for donations.. I love going over and just buffin for free when I see thoes.

God luck in the game man..>:).

Mana is only free if you when you have more than enough ) Otherwise you're paying Verant and precious minutes from your leisure time to make more. I also buff quite freely (often without being asked) when I have mana to burn, but I also say no to buff beggars when I don't. I try not to be rude, but there are times when "free" buffs are very much not free to casters -- especially the lowbie casters. Why should they sit on the sideline medding while other peeps get to run off and earn xp with those buffs? For buffs that consume a high percentage of one's mana -- whatever the level -- I think it's totally appropriate to donate.

Mana may be free, but nothing else in the game is :( Spells cost plat, items cost plat and I'm not in a guild (I was, but I decided that it wasn't mutually beneficial so I left). There is nothing wrong with asking for donations for helping other players out with buffs. I give away buffs as well ALL the time, but if I'm low on plat it's either be stingy with my mana and use it only for my hunting or ask for donations (meaning I'll take anything that is given to me).

Personally, I have a 26 CLR and I find it quite annoying when someone asks for full buffs and gives me nothing in return. My time is not free, while my mana usually is. Some of my buffs, as with alot of buffs, take a regent.

Same applies when I do a rezz. It's nice for someone to offer a donation - after all, I might only have 20%, but it's 20% more than you would have gained if your corpse had rotted or been looted.

Have some consideration, but don't force it. Some people like donations, others don't care - make that call as it happens. There's no real right answer - just a whole bunch of wrong ones.

as a 32 cleric, unless im in a group making some cash or I am specifically asked nicely / donated. Lazy enough we dont bow or thank in real life, but i want a thank you from their toon. I dont drop the symbol. Its all about how i feel, and the feeling i get from em. It does get quite expensive.

Then... We are talking about a game, where I log on my druid, I get a tell from NO WHERE because i am NOT anon. The guy says he has not played in a year o this toon and does not know where he is. We figure out he is in Overthere and has NO way back. He begs and begs for a ride. I come to get him. He hardly speaks to me, no pleases or thank you's. take him on his way. He does not even thank me. I stop what I am doing, come to now man's land, port him out and even sow him. The guy did not even thank me. I said something, basically how rude it was for him to say nothing. His reply... was 'he was in a hurry to meet up with friends' DUH! arn't we all 'in a hurry' if we are begging the non-anon druids for ports? WTF? His 'hurry' would have been a crawl swimming around without sow for a zone.

Its just simple manors.

1. Offered free buffs, I donate moderately, if they say more then 2 words to me, even donate more.
2. If they ask me for a buff, I give the basics, if they stay and talk to me, hell, sometimes I will follow them about or be within shouting distance for them. I mean if they make my gaming time more fun, im more then happy.
3. If they demand I dont. Period. if they dont speak to me or thank me or even interact, or for that matter they speak english... but dont even form a sentance to ask me in a sentance. ***** that

its all attitude. I mean. Especially if they are kind. Or even if they rollplay. Like if they stand on a road, and the are a bandit robbing me for sow... Id play along. :) but how would he catch me?

I'm a level 36 pally and it still does not proc for me, so with the previous post I suppose it procs somewhere between 36 and 39.

since the codain are about the same lvl as the giants in GD, and woven frost giant beards are usable at 45, I would guess that these become useable at 45 too. Just my 2cp

Its a click effect NOT a proc

These drop off of the coldain dorfs or lesser tar goos...5 charges of berserker strength which adds strength and takes agi...and gives approx 60 dmg invul is NOT unlimited charges like the previous post states...seems to be more rare than the giant beards but thats just from what ive found
The proc
# Sep 08 2001 at 5:22 AM Rating: Default
I'm wondering if people are waiting for this thing to just go off. It has charges, meaning it's right-clickable. I'm saving the charges on mine so I'm not going to just click it to see if it works, but in case people are waiting for an effect like a Velium weapon or a Smoldering Brand it doesn't work like that.

This is not a bad item at all, replaced a sheer bone mask with it after a paladin gave to to me. Probably not gonna keep it too long though. Waiting to get a Mask of Decpetion and see how I look as an inkie. Well anyway, got it at 17, doent proc for me, but thats ok since a have an unlimited charge berserker strengh on my pgt. I dual weild it with icetooth claws with a good out come and would recommend the duo, but anyway, the beard is real good, i thought beards had +cold resist, guess i was wrong. Anyway, with this and no spell effects i have 58 magic resistance and 118 agility.

Whenever I find one of these Ill use its effect on myself and my pet if i have one then discard. I fond too many to hang onto one wiht no charges.

It dropps off coldain Wolfhandlers. saw two out of around 15 kills. It was better than what I was wearing so I put it on. It would not trigger for lvl 32. It is lore.

Drop off of
# Mar 05 2001 at 5:31 PM Rating: Default
These things drop off of Crystal Spiders too. Or it might have been a Tar Goo. But you can find them off of other mobs.

As to their being rare, I think the other guy is thinking of Giant Beards which are common in the city. The one I got todayis the first one I have seen.

RE: Drop off of
# Mar 29 2001 at 12:09 PM Rating: Default
I got two of these yesterday in about hour or two. Both came off a Lesser Tar Goo in Thurgadin.

# Dec 14 2000 at 6:30 PM Rating: Good
These drop off of the coldain, hundreds have been slain and have seen a few. Pretty rare , especially since not many are killing the coldain. My warrior likes his. Procs at around 40.Probably would not sell for less than 1000
RE: Drops
# Dec 28 2000 at 8:37 PM Rating: Decent

It looks as if is shows it only contains 5 charges of Berserk Str...unless I read it wrong....?......

Actually, according to a post from Verant, Paladins are going to get the piercing skill and they were making weapons in Velious to reflect that. They are supposed to represent the lance and pike weapons used by knights. Don't expect to get a horse anytime soon though.

WTF? I didn't post this here! I was looking at the piercer you get off the queen when I posted this. I was just looking through the site and saw this post and I laughed until I saw I was the poster. ROFL... Well, I hope this post stays where it is supposed to.
