I got this to replace my Goranga Idol.. a few more ac and more stamina. Too bad there's no dex on this item.
Doubtful, but I gotta ask

Any chance a 42 SK could solo camp the Chief ?

Camped this spot for 4 hours with a 39 SK, a 45 SK and a 53 Druid. was kinda easy..

Who can camp?
# Apr 15 2002 at 4:28 PM Rating: Default
A trio of low 50s, a duo of mid 50s, a solo char of high level (and a soloing class).

56 Druid and 57 Paly worked well, for example.

Necromancers solo it earlier than most other classes.

I'm an Enchanter, I can't use you're sweet little Shiny Trinket whatchamacallit. This item is All/All. AND it's a range slot. We're raiding Droga this week, I wouldn't pass this up with a stick. :)

The Price of this is now going to drop quick once a few of these new items get out on the market.

Shiny Trinket of Speed
AC: +25 Str: +15 Sta: +10 Dex: +10 HP: +25
Weight: 0.1
Classes: Warrior Rogue Monk Bard Shadowknight Paladin Ranger Beastlord
Races: All Races
Inventory Slot: Ranged Weapon

this new item owns the idol in every way. I expect the idol to start selling for about 5k or a little less when this gets out on the market. When the Shiny Trinket gets on the market expect a price of at least 15k. when the price of the idol drops this will drop some as well. I have seen the idol go for 6k - 10k lately.

Shiny Trinket of Speed is NOT DROPPABLE! Lets see you sell a no drop item.

Yep, that's a very nice item. Not only does it have the stats you've pointed out, but haste as well (after recent patch). Given that, though, I expect it to be priced in the forget-about-it range, and this item will still be of interest to those who have to save up to buy a horse ;-)

Surprisingly enough The Shiny Trinket of Speed is droppable.

Although it's rareity and stats will make it's price insanely high...

If anything is going to kill the Idol of the Thorned, it will be cheaper idols such as the Goranga Idol, Fetish of the Nimble, Fetish of the Agile, etc.

You should see the Idol of the Thorned selling for about 1K in a few months.

Reasons why this wont be on the markey for at least 6 months ( till 2003).

1. Stats - Those are extremely good stats for a ranged item and you would have to be sickenly uber to sell it.

2. It drops from the creator. He is comparable to AoW and not many guilds can kill Avatar without help.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jan 04 2002 at 4:57 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) might want to double check your info the shiny trinket of speed is NOT NO DROP. however it is a rare drop off a named spawn in a very high lvl zone so there wont be very many out there
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 28 2002 at 7:51 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) umm.. he said it was droppable, might wanna double check the post before you flame.
price dropping yet?
# Dec 12 2001 at 6:21 AM Rating: Default
any idea what to expect these to settle down to after people start farming the godlike Luclin range items?
Good idol
# Sep 28 2001 at 8:06 AM Rating: Default
Okay, until velious this was best range item in game, period. for those newbies who post here saying it's not worth it, or that it's just an okay item, you obviously don't understand the most important stat in the game for any melee is AC. AC = most important, and since this item has the most ac (beside some rare velious stuff), it's a VERY good range slot, and very much worth the cost or time to get one.
RE: Good idol
# Oct 28 2001 at 11:22 PM Rating: Default

this is an AWESOEM range item. And not only is AC important but RESISTS!!! RESISTS RESISTS RESISTS!! Resists are the difference between a life and death in some areas.

But all in all, pretty effing sweet item. I'm going to camp one in a few days.
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 10 2001 at 9:10 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ******, there are no resists on the idol
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 18 2001 at 7:43 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Umm who's the ****** here? The guy never said there were resists on it. He said resists were also very important. It's bad enough that you badmouth people for making a mistake, but in this case you just made a total jackass out of yourself.

I just got this little bad boy after a guildie got it in 2 hrs.

I was there 8 hrs, guildie held camp 1hr before i showed up. During that time loot from chief was as follows:

6 stickers
2 Essence of Dol
1 Idol

A couple other people i know said they usually got idol after 7 stickers and 3 dols. Had no prob holding this camp with a 53 rake and 51 vicar. Getting there can be a pain if eveyone does not have invis though.
got this easily
# Sep 02 2001 at 8:20 PM Rating: Default
Went on a guild raid (only 6people showed up) in Droga and we went straight to chief he was up, pulled him and dropped essence and eye? and then we stayed for another pop and he dropped the idol. Won the roll so i am a very happy warrior. He isnt to hard to get to. Just make sure you have a map and go very slowly, we never had any adds. And no one came close to dieing. So all in all it was a very easy camp.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 28 2001 at 9:24 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I personaly think the 2 ok stats on this thing and AC is a rip off, as of aug 28 01' this Idol is 15kpp avg on Saryrn, i think its a rip off, but go ahead waste yer money on this OK IDOL!!!

An OK Idol? At level 52, this would add 15 AC after my bonus. When I think about how much it would cost me to get an extra 10 raw AC, 7 STR and 10 STA, this doesn't seem like such a rip-off. Especially now that it's down in the 10-12k range (on Saryrn as well).
# Aug 22 2001 at 12:47 PM Rating: Default
23k? it's good, but DANG, that's a lot of RBF camp's before I can afford that. I think I'll just stick to my plain old RBF for a while.

Reckon a 39 sham and 45 sham can hold anything here? =P
# Aug 20 2001 at 7:19 AM Rating: Default
This guy takes 20mins to spawn its either him or PH. Idol dropped in umm like 20 spawns. Chief does not see true hide. As a magie its real easy, just be around 54 + with epics its just so easy. But without earth is the only choice and will finsih the normal gobo's up. The chief was yellow to a 37 4x. Only other yellow was the maddend burynai dropped gi once i think. Ended up rotting 4 dols 2 circlets and some fs stuff.
RE: dam
# Nov 06 2001 at 5:03 PM Rating: Default
I don't think you need to be a mage with epic to camp this guy. In fact I bet a 50 or lower mage could easily solo this guy. The problem is getting there safely.

RE: dam
# Nov 07 2001 at 1:50 AM Rating: Decent
You are very correct. As a 53 mage using the 51 earth pet can wipe up this whole zone. Just clear the way single pulling the gobbies, if you get an add or 2 no big deal at all. Two applications of scintillation and the adds are gone. Even if 4 or 5 gobbies get on pet is no big deal at all, Jabober is not scared. Do the same to the chief room, single pull them all out to front of room in hall and let Jabober go to work. For a mage I think it is much safer and easier to kill your way to a camp rather than invis there, if invis should drop in a bad spot we have no means of escape save gate and it is a really rare time where you can get a pet off without being interrupted of beat down. From what I have seen in EQ, mages are pretty much the kings (and queens) of greenie dungeon farming, hehe. I pull these little buggers with level one nuke so I am never using mana except for burnout and shield of lava for pet so that I have plenty of mana for scintillations if a drastic situation should arise.
chief room 2
# Aug 03 2001 at 2:31 PM Rating: Decent
Went back again to try my luck. First chief spawned with the idol, I was very suprised after my last 13 hour expedition.

Here is some more info that might help:

1) It is very possible to single pull all of the mobs when you are 53+. Use a ranged attack to pull, not proximity.

2) The mobs run, so you must have a snarer. If the mobs run, they don't bring friends back with them. So pet users, have that /pet back off hotkeyed so your pet doesn't cause the place to come down on you if your snare runs out at a bad time.

3) If the chief has nothing in either hand, you just lucked out :)
# Jul 28 2001 at 4:34 AM Rating: Decent
I camped the Chief for 29 hours straight and the idol finally dropped. Well worth the wait!
chief room
# Jul 09 2001 at 12:50 PM Rating: Good
Was there for 13 hours. None dropped. Person that took over the camp was there for 7 hours. Also none dropped.

A 55 SK can hold the room once broken quite easily. I had to leave when I ran out of bone chips and bandaids. Glad I did, since another 7 hours wouldn't have produced results.

The room has 3 static spawns and 1 wanderer. You can invis and go to the ramp outside of the room. The wanderer can be pulled single but I got a couple adds from the surrounding area (which is why it is hard to break solo). The next 2 came in pairs both times I tried, so I HT'd one to kill it and FD'd to spread spawn time. Single pulled the other one, waited a bit, and rushed the room to take out the last spawn. If you do it right you only have to fight a mob about every 5 min. I then set up a pet in the middle of the room to take the HT's when the SK mobs spawned.
Chief/PH seemed to pop about every 20 mins.
The Chief sees through invis.
Incredibly boring camp. Bring someone in your guild to PL to have some company.
2 1/2 hours

57th necro was camping item and i told him to give me a tell before he left. Friend (51 druid) and I (53 warrior) took over camp. 2 1/2 hours later i had an idol. the necro said he had camped for 6-7 hrs with no drop.
# Jun 19 2001 at 2:04 PM Rating: Default
Camped Cheif for 32 hours straight June 15th - 16th, no Idol.
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 22 2001 at 5:41 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Our guild on Luclin, Norrath's Justice, did this guy yesterday. First Cheify kill, Idol. Hehehe, I got to hold it for rolling, that was NICE. Next time we killed him he had the stickler, then, about 4 peeps which were the backbone of the raid went LD and didn't come back on.......long CR. Hehehe, congrats to Symthicus who won the idol
Nice Item

I got one this afternoon with my Shaman and me. Killed the Chief 16 times. The Sols and Stickers dropped bout half and half (so 7 and 8). Chief spawns on platform in south corner where torch is up on the wall. Took us 10 or 11 hours to do 16 chiefs. Hellish camp, but there are worse.

I would have to say that 30k pp is about right for this item... It's a very rare drop, and it's in a dungeon that just plain stinks!
The only people who really go to this place are the level 50+ people who are bored and looking for "phat lootz" (God, do I hate that phrase.)
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 01 2001 at 8:30 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) WOOT PHAT LEWTZ!!!!! WOOT! btw.. Droga is a great place to farm.. it's underused the most I've ever seen in the place is around 6 ppl.. and they were actually getting exp (wow!) but every other time I've been there it's been me... or me and partner.. or me and my group.. whatever ;) very underused so who cares if you farm? no one is there to complain
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 30 2001 at 3:41 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ...a common leather whip that is.
