all this does is stops you from wasting the little bit of mana it takes to reclaim the mana with the normal spell
Focus for higher lv pets

Never really noticed if this made my pet stronger but i did notice a slight increase in mana relaiming over instant reclaim energy. hard to justify with the castign time so high though.
For all those intereseted the foci that makes epic pet and 61+ lv pets stronger is the Gloves of dark summoning Droped off name in Vex Thal. supposed to be a rare drop but our guild got like 5 very uber makes epic as big as an ogre :) Very difficult zone which requires a full raid force for anywhere from 6 to 12 hours of streigh mob pulling and killing.

It might be if you have KEI or VoQ, then during the 10 seconds needed to cast (on a horse/drog as well as standing) you are regaining mana ! :)

Reclaim Energy is a spell that turns ur pet into mana... so the guy may have noticed his mana go up.. but did he check to see if he still had a pet?

Cannot be purified
# Jul 08 2002 at 1:04 AM Rating: Decent
This item cannot be purified by means of the spirit aid quest. Just tried it.

Also it jus came to as i was reading a post. The mysterous locked mirror in the mirror room is probably this. O.k. you got the express key. You use it on the first floor on the mirror to the left. It takes you to the mirror room on the 7th floor. All the mirrors are one way this holds true on every floor. So wouldn't the "locked" mirror be the one that you came through using the key the express key Tserrina drops. I have not gotten the key yet but guildie did tonight and I will try to confirm this as soon as I can. All I have to say is DUH if it is. I hate bursting my own bubble
RE: Cannot be purified
# Dec 28 2002 at 5:37 PM Rating: Decent
all mirrors are one way except entrance mirror. but no mirror shows up on the opposite side. so once you go through a mirror you do not turn around and see a mirror. If what you are saying is true then there would be a blank wall not a mirror.

there is nothing on track that has not been accounted for. if the last mirror does go somewhere it it either a very long ways or it is a whole new zone.

my guess is that it was put in for the option of future expansion, but never used. kind of like the short tunnel in the north east corner of stonebrunt. even has a door you can open but it does not go anywhere.
8th floor

There is no 8th floor. The key to 7th floor opens the locked door and the mirror in there ports you out to Iceclad.

Correction: There is no 8th floor... *yet*

I understand that the bit-sniffers who have looked into the data files don't see an 8th floor. Fine. But, that does not preclude this last mirror being for some as-yet-unsolved quest to open an 8th floor.

Think of it this way: there's no Sleeper in ToV... until you wake him in ST. There's no 8th floor to ToFS now, but there's nothing to stop this scenario (as an example only... please understand this is just an example scenario):

Get signet ring, give it to Dain Frostreaver, get a Crystal Shadow Key. Go back, click on the mirror and get dropped into some raid-level encounter that drops yada-yada-whatever loot. Next patch Verant proclaims success of so-and-so server in opening the lost level of the ToFS, and the mirror becomes a portal (clickable only with master key) to the Plane of Shadow.

Now, Verant has been suprisingly closed-lipped about this one. I might have expected them to give the secret away before Luclin or at least PoP... why would they not? My suspicion is this: it is intended to open a plane, but Verant has seen so little interest in planes vs. easy-to-get-to places like ToV, new CT, etc that they don't see a burning need to open this one and take that much more away from the planes opened in PoP.

Once most of the servers solve the PoP epic quest, they will start pushing out some hints for unsolved quests in previous expansions.

sleeper isn't in ToV before or after being awakened.

At least I have never seen her in there in the north, east or west wings

I got the EverQuest Trilogy and it came with a new players guid and in the guid it talked a little bit about TOFS and it is talking about a 8th lvl. And what the guid said was to use the spell Identify on any items that Tserrina drops and see what clues they give you for finding the key to the 8th lvl. I dunno about this, but yall may try it and see what you come up with. Just my 2 cents

bout the 8th floor
# Nov 18 2001 at 2:21 AM Rating: Decent
i am thinking the 8th floor will be opened concerning the newspapers in the game. it mentions Tserinna so it might just lead to the 8th floor well have to wait and see. Safe Journeys
8th floor
# Oct 12 2001 at 11:50 PM Rating: Decent
I've seen it mentioned in other post but nothing conclusive. In theory it would make sense that this item would be used to grant access to the mythical 8th floor (or maybe to a portal to somewhere else) since it is the only thing (other than the key) that drops each and every time she is killed. As far as I know there is no mage quest (mages correct me if I am wrong) that requires this item. So it would seem likely that this may be something more than it seems. Possibly an unfinished quest? A future 8th level? A portal to a future plane? Chances are it is just a nice mage item with no other hidden use, but there is always that slim chance.

I would be inclined to (hope) that they don't let this go without further developement. As a 51 Vending machine, i plan on snatching myself this little gem just so i can go to MM and carve my name on Mayong's casket with it! lol

and you can betcha azz that i will be casting identify all over this thing. if ANYTHING turns up, i will be the first to report it, been waitin a long time to snuff her out and take my gem...
could this be?
# Aug 06 2001 at 10:32 AM Rating: Decent
no it cannot be, this is not a focus item
its just a nice item with manna thats lets you get manna back from an almost dead pet and summon a new one at little or no cost
if anyone has some relevant data to post i would love to hear about it otherwise
stop with the idiotic newbie posts children.

Epic Focus ??
# May 09 2001 at 7:08 PM Rating: Default
I have heard rumors of this being our epic pet focus. I'm working on my epic right now, and friends are always raiding ToFS so I will stop in and grab one soon. Guess the only way to find out is someone with the epic pet will have to test it. Anyone know if that ShowEQ program is still out there and working? I heard thats how you obtain exact stat info on things including differences in focused pets. Regarding the many post about getting back more mana from Monster Summoning line with the HSGem, try it with any of your other focus items, you will always gain back more mana than you expend, its not a special ability of the gem that Tserinna drops, its all reclaim energy items. I can stand up indefintiely casting MS2 and reclaiming and be at FM after each reclaim, and my specialization is Evocation, not conjuration.
RE: Epic Focus ??
# Jul 02 2001 at 11:09 PM Rating: Decent
It is the foci for the Monster Summoning Line. Some summoned monsters will appear larger when this is equipped as they are cast. (Spiders will be the size of large spiders (not giant) and orcs will grow from the size of pawns to the size of centurions.
Tower Levels
# Apr 29 2001 at 7:25 PM Rating: Excellent
There are 7 levels in the tower - per the designer of the tower, level 6 is split in two (6a and 6b with a mirror between NOT needing a key, but the theme is same, and there's a return mirror to 6a under ramp of 6b). Also, Tserrina's Key is a master to the LEFT mirror on level 1, takes you to a 6 mirror room on level 7 (Tserrina's level). The door near the mirrors is locked, can be picked 201 skill OR use key from level 6 to 7 to open it and gain access to the spiral stairs near Tserrina. The rightmost of the 6 mirrors is being kept "unworking" for now (try it, it responds slightly differently than the other mirrors) for future expansion in the game and storyline (again - per conversation with developer on Test server one day).

FYI, we've killed Tserrina 7 times now, 3 whips, 3 symbols, 1 staff, no robes (cry), but she dropped both her shortcut key, and the mage only handheld item every time.

Door is pickable with a 200 skill (not sure if it is lower or not, but I do know that a rogue will a pick lock skill of 200 can do it.)

Effect !
# Mar 11 2001 at 9:15 AM Rating: Decent
I received this item recently, and made a few tests with it. This is not a focus item (at least doesn't sem to be), but the effect on it is not the regular reclaim energy we are used to (the one from sol ro focus items and from the 3 staves).
The casting time of the reclaim energy on harnessed soul gem is 8 seconds, but it gives back ALL the mana that the pet costed (tested with MS II, I summoned 20 MSII and killed them and was still FM, though I had no clarity and was standing).
This looks great for chaincasting =). I haven 't tested the range yet. Anyone has one of the mage vellious armor bracers? They might have the same effect i guess.
Also, i was wondering, is 8th level of TFS already in game? Read someone s post about the harnessed soul gem being used as a quest item to access lvl 8, just below.. I thought only the key from tserrina was needed but that the level was not yet created..

RE: Effect !
# Apr 12 2001 at 11:19 AM Rating: Default
Just a little info from my own experiences: Before I ever got this item from the tower, I think I was lvl 48 at the time, I noticed that if my pet was at full health and used the Ro focus item I would gain a bit more mana back than used in summoning a pet. I think it took about 8 pets and reclaim energys to get around a bubble of mana. Maybe a little more efficient than meditating, but not worth the components this require you to carry around. I have since tried this with both the Ro focus item and harnessed soul gem and believe that this no longer works. At least it didn't work the last time I tried it.

BTW, i am speced in evo, but i guess if speced in conjuration this item would allow you to regain some mana by just casting pets then using it.
Alas, if my estimations are correct, with 225+ in spec conj, you wil use half mana once every three pets. With pet costing 350 mana, that'll make 175 mana regained every (10+8)*3 = 54 secs of casting time, so not really interesting as a mana regen item ;).

Do all you magicians in the world *really* need so many items with Effect: Reclaim Energy on them? ;)
RE: I was just wondering...
# Jun 10 2001 at 4:11 AM Rating: Default
Magicians/necros items with Reclaim energy effect
make pet stronger and higher level if held in main hand.
Although the only Reclaim Energy item I know about necros is Encyclopedya necrotheurgia dropped off Innoruuk =)

Seems that Verrant things that we really really need to reclaim our pet at the drop of a hat.
4 focus items, 2 gods drops, one plane item and now this. ALL with reclaim energy on it.

Lucky us

The effect isn't important, this isn't meant to be an equipped loot. The Harnessed Gem is a quest component which frees the trapped soul in the tower, allowing access to the locked 8th floor.

# Apr 27 2001 at 12:53 AM Rating: Default
Yeah ...i really want to know more on how this helps you get onto the 8th floor. Other than this post i can't find any info on how to get to the floor. you can e-mail me at
RE: I was just wondering...
# Dec 18 2000 at 4:06 AM Rating: Default
also verant has stated a few times that items with effect reclaim energy are more then likely focus items....anyone tried to check that?
RE: I was just wondering...
# Jan 10 2001 at 6:14 AM Rating: Decent
The spell data file lists what item is needed to make pets "focused". It doesn't list any other items other than the Staves and the normal Focus items.

ive noticed that the gem summons constant blue pets for me.. but they are not big like when summoned with the focus items.. but still hit for around 40.. im a level 40 mage so....
RE: port to 8th floor..hhmm
# Apr 01 2001 at 7:55 PM Rating: Decent
I like the effect, when I am finished fighting and done , I can get my manna back.Remeber at level 49 you dont use the 4 tool focuse items anymore, you need to get the harder one.
As far as always getting a "blue" pet....I get them with or without this item ,but I am intrested in the idea of it helping open the 8th floor...anyone found out how to get there?....
Could this be?
# Dec 16 2000 at 10:40 PM Rating: Decent
Could this be the focus item
for our Monster Summoning Spell Series
of pets? :)
RE: Could this be?
# Jan 22 2001 at 5:46 PM Rating: Default
Personally, I think this IS a focus item for the higher level mage pets. Initial focus items only worked up to level 50. I just turned 50, got this item, and summoned a 49th level earth pet. It may just be my imagination, but seemed to me that my pet had seemed to have be hastened. Attacks were doubled and damaged dealt, went from the 150's, to in upwards of 250-200. My pet also ran around like it had sow cast upon it. I'm not for certain, but I will continue using this gem instead of my regular focus items.

RE: Could this be?
# Jan 19 2001 at 10:46 PM Rating: Default
OK i have one of these babys and they totaly rock and iv heard from a few people that this is the first focus item we can get that works on all pets and i have yet to test this theory but it maybe true cus if you think about it it has reclaim energy just like all our original focus items so im gana log on and test it out and ill port if it works or not...
RE: Could this be?
# Dec 19 2000 at 12:22 AM Rating: Decent
I don't think so... our normal focus items work with Monster Summoning, you just have to have the right item while summoning the right type of pet. Thats one of the drawbacks of Monster Summoning.
