Anyone know if these can be MQ'd? Picked this head up on a raid awhile back because they were rotting, so I figured why not. I've already got Raex's Gauntlets though ( and 41% from my bracer... Just thinking I could get some plat out of this head or maybe help a guildy out... Anybody tried it before?

No. That's why it was rotting.

Once the person with the head has decent enough faction
they hand in one item, the head, to get the gaunts.
How can you possibly MQ that?

casters realm had this listed as clicky haste. can someone list some of the better clicky haste items in the game? eyepatch of plunder keeps getting recomended but can you get better than 20% clicky?

The POP ornate gloves for the Monk are 40% haste (atleast thats what someone told me), right click , You can pick the pattern in the Baz for 30kish.

I do not know if its 40%, but I do know that I hit WAY WAY faster with them, than without them :)

Getting Yeli's head was the easy part....
Had to spend a week getting Tormax faction to warmly.. boring as hell, killed thousands of those little Coldain buggers ...

Then, I had to wait 4 weeks before i finally managed to hand the head into Tormax, due to guilds taking him out or server resets...

But it was all worth it... These gauntlets are worth every bit of frustration that a lot of peeps who want will have to go through... Theres not much better untill you get elementally flagged.

Now all i got to do is change faction back to Coldain so i can do the ring quest.

I did this with a faction of amiable (10/24/03)about 8 heads into it. Tormax ate the head. I know they nerfed the faction so it was harder to change but it seems they also upped the needed faction. I would suggest ally or close to be safe. It may be a diety/class issue but I couldn't say. Do the extra faction to be safe is my advice.

Honestly by the time you can get this haste item it is great for any class.... being a rogue i want these so i can get rid of my epic i have a item i could use in offhand that will up my dps but i need the haste form epic and have better then epic in primary so yes these are good for any class

Why not for SKs and beastlords and rangers too? stats just as nice for them as pallys. And if your gonna say its good for warriors too, you'd probibly notice its very nice for rogues, and monks. Truely, a very nice item for any melee.

as noted Rogues / monks / rangers / beastlords all get epic haste while Sk's and Pallys have god awfull epics with a mediocre effect and POOR damage/delay.

on an unrelated topic something still needs to be done about the epics as they are no longer particulaly good in relation to the other item you can get out there especially the melee ones <Pally and Sk are they worst> and LDoN did nothing to adress this issue

If you are still gauging classes by their epics, you a severly outdated my friend. The attitude that rangers/rouges/bl/monks shouldn't get haste items because of their epics is precisely the reason the cap out on DPS. Being able to shed epics is what moves these classes into the upper echelon of DPS.

Rogues being able to get rid of ragebringer gives them great DPS. Rangers being able to get rid of swiftwind and go back to being a meleer from archery means no more inconsistent dps due to arrow poofs. Monks have some decent H2H weapons that allow them to do some serious triple attacks. BL, well, BL get to get rid of those ugly no-fitting claws ;p

All of these classes are DPS classes, forcing them to use equipment from 4 expensions ago, is pretty shallow-minded and very limiting for a guild.

The priority tank class for haste has to be Warriors above SK's and Pally's. I've seen pally's with 28% haste hold agro perfectly on raids, but a warrior with 36% haste and a BoC + Fleshgrinder having to fight the mobs 1-on-1 for a considerable amount of time to be able to hold agro after the rest of the raid joins in.

And what the hell are you talking about on Poor damage/delay? All of the epics suck for damage/delay by post SoL standards ;p And the cleric epic is about the only effect that still has any value.
RE: pally
# Oct 23 2003 at 7:42 AM Rating: Default
Sure those classes get epic hastes , But its on a weapon. I am a 65 Ranger , weilding Swiftwind in secondary and Either Great Blade of Storms (BoT) or Tendonslicer (ssra). Now i could do more DPS with weilding both those weapons than i would with epic , as epic ratio is not the best. so Far i have not been able to get yeli's head but it is one item i am now aiming for. Its good for all Melee classes. but i dont think you should say SK /paladin / warrior before any other melee just because there epics dont have haste

Anyone who says an all/all item is for a specific class is retarded, it is all/all for a reason GET OVER IT, a shaman would get just as much use out of these as a warrior or a monk. If a mage wanted them WHO CARES as long as they have the faction and can get the item they will get a use out of these gloves.

Why does everyone post with oh this is for this class, oh that class doesnt have good use for this item, blah blah blah! These guants are good for ANY class! They have int and wis, STR , Hp, mana resists, everything every class needs! I think its just an added bonus that this has haste. That dosent make it just a melee item though. I see this as a great item for anyone who can get it, and i feel bad for those people who sit there and flame stuff like this, its just not cool

God you two must have been raised in a school for the retarded!!! Did it ever occur to you that if a druid had these it was because either no one else needed them, that they have seriously nice AC for a leather class, lots of mana extremely good wis and lovely resists.

And the post about they suck at everything that they can do, I seriously would give you a slapping about if you were on veeshan. Druids are possibly one of the best classes in the game and also the best soloers. At 51 who else can solo in PoN?????? Druids, Wizzies, Bards and possibly shammies. At 60's who can solo in PoV, Nadox and other high level zones??? Exactly the same list mate!! With the addition of BL's in some.

IMHO it is you who is being a ''huge *** prick'', it says all/all hence it is open to everyone. Yes I would love to get these as a BL before a pure caster and I expect I would, but I would not winge like a kid with a skinned knee that didn't get the f*****g lollipop you ...........

Necros can, hell at 60 as an SK I was able to solo in PoV. It's really more a matter skill of the player then class.

As for who these gauntlets are best for. There all/all, that who there best for. Anyone willing to do the work required to complete the quest and who has earned whatever level of merit your guild uses to award loot on. If your in a guild capeable of killing Yelinak, then your guild is also killing other stuff that can result in 41% haste items.

#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 22 2002 at 10:14 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ya know what I find hilarious about this whole thing is that casters say casters should get and melees say melees should get. Im surprised any of you made it past lvl 20 with this mentality. I play a cleric always have always will yeah having basiclly 16.5 wis on my hands at level 50 would be nice another 165 mana total is always nice but a clerics job is quite simple you keep your tanks alive no matter where your hunting or raiding. You rely on them to save you just as they rely on you to save them. Pretty simple thing. Now youve got your pure casters and buffers (shammy). Well lets see what is a caster they fit into 2 categories soloers and backup damage/buffs/damage prevention. Yeah these lil puppies have haste on them and great stats yippidy doodaa. Clerics can get better guants by simply doing thier epics (go check out Ixiblats drops) Casters well 165 mana is always nice for them, but once again your backup damage sorry guys its your job not my fault. MInd you chanters are diffrent since they slow KEI etc etc. Shammies I feel your pain since they have pure mana and real high wis on them but you can eat yourselves and torpor to gain it back so you have endless mana anyhow same with necros. Rogues and rangers sorry guys you need additional aggro as bout as much as a cleric. Warriors if you even bother with these gloves at the level required to get them it tells me you have P.O.S. gear and shouldnt be there anyhow. Well that leaves SK's and Pallys INT and mana for SKs or WIS and mana for pallys nice deal for either of you but I would give them to the pally first since hes more useful to the group due to backup heals buffs even resses if need be. Do I think that only pallies should be permitted these? Nope Im just saying in my book they should get the first chance. Personally id prefer to see these on everyone in the guild but I dont forsee it. Now thats ive simplified everything for you can we get back to discussing strats ideas etc etc to obtaining them?

Hey you pos, this item is only obtainable with a raid force. Why the hell are you talking about paly's doing back up heals in a group. Oh, and someone on CT please slap this dumbass for me. Paly rez WTF does that have to do with haste gaunts? I'm not going to even talk about your level 51 status, that's too easy.

What I find "silly" is someone so ignorant trying to tell everyone who should get these. Thank god you're on Cazic Thule, I'd be terrified to have you be my cleric in a pickup group. Probably try to cast CH on the chanter.

"Well lets see what is a caster they fit into 2 categories soloers and backup damage/buffs/damage prevention."

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAAHAAA! Casters only solo or do backup damage to the melee's, or buff, or prevent damage. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAA!

Idiot. I considered quoting more of your drivel, but its a waste of time to refute every single point. I'll just hit the high points.

Try doing some big mobs with no wizards around for "backup" damage.

Shaman slows beat Chanter slows. Oh, and they heal too.

Chanter needs the AC and HP, but AC doesn't scale as well for a chanter, and the haste is wasted anyway. The resists are cool though (see below).

If you think the SK mana isn't benefiting the party, its because you've never played an SK at high level. It's not HEALING the party, but if you can't see past direct benefits, your l33t strategy lacks.

Good rangers and rogues have ways of shedding aggro because they did "too much damage." And haste affects bow shots. I suggest you hang out with some elite rangers and see why wizards get jealous.

Above 200, stats give less mana; more than they used to but less than below the soft cap. So you may not get as much mana as you think. Doesn't matter. At raid level (the level it takes to get these) no one gives a big rip about the AC, the HP, or the stats. It's Resists, Resists, Resists. And this item has them.

Further, since it has haste, it could conceivably allow a melee to remove another haste item elsewhere in favor of a resist item, without compromising damage output. So the "best class" is going to depend on your guild's gear.

[sarcasm] In short, the best class for this item is Beastlord! They both melee and cast healing spells too![/sarcasm]

That this is a QUEST item all the B******G about who can loot these is completely irrelevent. This IMO ISNT a random or a whoo should get this item or who shouldnt get this item. As nice as these are I wont EVER get them. Im on COV faction NOT kael. If your killing Giants in Velious, You not getting these either, sorry just a fact. If your taking the dragon down that drops the head then great most likley your taking him down for the person that wants to do this quest.

So please before you post mindless drivel about who should get and who should loot look at all of the items info (especially if its a quest).

Shadow... I'll be the first to admit I'm not the biggest expert on the higher level game. However, I know of people who would change their whole factions status for items like these. Most recently the highest-end guilds on each server-despite that they will be farming VT, SSRA, and some of the higher tier (BoT, HoHA or HoHB, and PoTa) PoP zones-are factionless. If some people were bored one night and decided to kill Yelinak or the Dain I can promise that whoever got their heads sure as hell wouldn't let the item pass them by (because if they had better waist/hands they probably wouldn't have looted the head in the first place). My point is, just because people are killing giants doesn't mean that they will never see this item. I, myself, am on CoV faction at the minute; however, were I to get Yelinak's head, the plains around Thurgardin would soon have a far scarcer number of tracking wolves and their stumpy masters.
RE: Well considering....
# May 01 2003 at 11:01 PM Rating: Decent
King Tormax is the faction you need to complete this quest. Tracking wolves do not gain KT faction. Only Coldain Heads, Dain IV, Yelinak, a mercenary supply quest and perhaps some others will gain you KT faction. It took me from January until April to get mine up to where I could do the turn-in, and I worked at it a lot. I am now proud owner of these as a warrior.

I find many of these posts amusing. there is one that says he has seen every class but a wiz melee.please reread that last statement and please casters post what you think. the times i see casters melee is when group is killing so easy they do it for fun not because they think they are tanks. Once i meet a caster who thinks they can tank better than a warrior i would just assume they are an ebay character and make a point to avoid them in future. At the same time as a warrior i cant cast spells anywhere near as good as a caster so in real fights what say we learn how to play our specific class. For those who still think casters can tank please sell your character where you bought it and stop being a hazard to those of us in game that have actually leveled our characters ourself and understand them.(btw i have nothing against casters just morons. some of my best friends are casters)

Hate to carry out an old grudges, but I can tank better than most warriors with my gear (warrior equivalent), at my level, especially without a cleric. I will admit, though, it is better to have a warrior tank because tanking as a necro is a huge drain on mana. So please, to whoever posted the article about all casters who think they can tank better than warriors, reconsider your wording and do not base a "fact" only on what you know (playing only a level 61 from what your signature says).
Just as a side note, these gloves really don't belong on int casters, we can get much better items nowadays and this was even so back then for what they could have been used for. I would also rather see these on my berserker alt before they ended on my Necromancer.

ok this is just what i hear as a lvl 44 warrior:
AC = You Need it! (Better be above 850 by 50)
HP = You Need it! (bout 2.5k or up by 50)
ATK = You Need it! (bout 1k by 50)
Str = Important (upper 230's to 250+ by 50)
Sta = Get it up to 255 (easy as that)
Agi = what i hear is it effects how many crits ya get and somewhat of how hard so i'd say at LEAST 140's by 50
Dex = don't really need less ya gots a procing weapon so bout 120 or like 100 or so
Wis = ummm no
Int = your swinging a sword thats all ya need to know how to so (that and disarming, Taunting(if MT) and kick/Bashing)
Cha = Don't need it unless you really wanna be liked by vendors (if so get some opal encrusted steins and usin while ya sell)
Resists(Poison, Magic, Disease, Fire, Cold) = Must HAVE!!!!!!!! and if ya wanna get into the good guilds some of them require such things like resists well above 100 or so.... Well Anyway Thats what i hear a WARRIOR needs oh yes and...
HASTE = Get it
Mana = Fock it

(All opinions are those of this dumbass warrior and not neccesarily those of this site or the readers/writers of this site and if you have a problem FLAME ME DAMNIT!!)

a more accurate view:

AC - get it up to 1150+ (around 1200 is soft cap)
HP - get as many straight +hp items as you can... most important stat for tanks (and everyone in the high end)
STA - 1 sta is about 5 hp until you're at 210 sta or so... then buffs will put you to cap, and its no longer any good. if one item has 10 sta and another has 50 hp, the 50 straight hp is better because of this.

STR - minor increase in ATK, don't bother
DEX - increases procs... warriors should have, but not focus on this. they suck at holding agro without nice procing weapons
AGI - minor increase in AC, don't bother

resists - useful, but dont bother with trying for them specifically. if you're doing a dragon you'll have resist buffs/bards and that should put you up to a resist soft cap, and for most regular exping it won't matter too much how high your resists are.

for warriors, i'd also try to get good procing weapons. please please use a wavecrasher/anything else over a windblade. that 50/44 ratio won't do much good if your chanter is getting pounded down because he/she crippled.

summary: AC to 1150+, HP HP HP HP HP HP and 200 or so STA. everything else is of limited value compared to these.

I have a 50 warrior alt, and I'd have to say I agree with Miyew's list of importance of stats, more than the other. Particularly the limited value of STR.

My main is a cleric, and my worst nightmare are always when I get a pickup warrior in group, and they show up with a wurmslayer and a defender's lightblade (yes, I have had a LVL 60, do this). Then you inspect, and they have tons of str items, with no HP on them (hero bracers, bracelet of might, etc). This GUARANTEES that 1) I'm gonna be healing constantly, as they have too few hp. 2) they will lose aggro when I CH, and I'm gonna get pounded.

Now, as far as the windblade thing, that really depends on whether you are MT or not. When my warrior groups with some of the 55+ in PoI, Our SK tanks, as his Defense is higher than mine, and he therefore has about 150ac more, plus he has an easier time grabbing aggro, and it speeds our kills up. I use my windblade then. When I am MT, I use CHoS and SoBS, both of which proc DD+stun.

Replace the bracelet of might with a crystal chitin wristband, or even a bracelet of fortitude. at 46, you should have almost NO items with no HP/Sta on them.

Agi is ac. Dex improves chance of hitting crits your never gonna get your ac and attack over 1k by 50 less u have the cash to buy good gear or u do kael..ALOT. Resists are only important in ToV cause dragons do almost constant AE's ( yes I know few other encounters it's usefull too but main is really ToV , don't kid urself) only thing that is important is ac and hp. Those 2 can only be buffed so much on raids I have 255 of every stat with or without the resist gear on. Sta is god..agi is god...pure hp is god....monks get nerfed ahahahahahahahahhaha Silly monkeys gonna be useless dmg dealers from now on no more getting a monk picked over my for grps in a week.

You are sadly mistaken about the monk Nerf, monks will be hit by mobs more often, not hit mobs less often. Also, the only ways you can possibly get attack up is by much hightened str, buffs (Grim Aura, Scream of hate line, Mark of the Predator, etc...) or having weapon skills and offense maxxed, I don't know what "doing Kael...ALOT." means but it sounds like either getting good gear from Kael (Which is rare outside of Tormax's closest chambers unless your trying to get Coroded armor for Thurgadin, and even then Thurgadin Armor can be improved upon, greatly) or you mean by doing quests in Kael and getting good gear, like these gauntlets. If your reffering to the second case then you shouldn't bother to mention that to someone who thinks you should have such stats at 50 (It's impossible, unless you're either (a) Severly twinked using MQ's and various pieces of gear you shouldn't be able to get or (b) damn near insane and/or hallucinating). Also, it's kind of hard to believe you have all of your stats at 255 with or without resist gear in use. Most higher end guilds reccomend that you use Blue Diamond and diamond jewelery in order to get the best resists possible without using Paypal to buy loot rights (Or whatever you EULA breakers use). Considering the stats that said jewelery has, it's very hard to imagine all your stats at 255 since they only have resists and mana. If you actually do have all of your stats at 255 with resist gear on then you must have visited Vex Thal, Lord Inquisitor Seru, NToV, and the high tier planes way too much. To add to your comment about ToV being the main place for resist gear, if you seriously believe the main place to use resist gear only is in ToV and the Halls of Testing then please kid yourself and do so, one less person aggroing a mob early or acting like a complete jackass on a raid he really does not belong on. To the person who originally started this thread, please think logically, it's understandable that errors can be made by lower level people, but trying to set an impossibly high standard for a level 50 is rather foolish, and also please post a thread related to the item/quest above, please don't post theories of gameplay under an item, it doesn't make a lot of sense unless your adding onto someone else's post. /rant off

As per these gloves, It doesnt really matter what class they better for. If your guilds able to take down the mobs to get these gloves, everyone who wants can end up with a pair sooner or later. As for the haste for casters, should come visit my server, we got many casters on our server who can out melee the average melee player on our server aside from the melees in their own guild and a few others about.

Ever seen a 60th Cleric melee a group of 5 level 55 to 60s to death with a 2hander, I have and it wasnt pretty. Im from a PVP server, so gloves like that could benefit anyone, its just more of a matter of who in your guild needs them more then anyone else.

even me, a warrior will agree that casters can melee, i just dont recommend in some situations. all you people who say casters were solely meant for non melee wanna explain to me the ratio on the mage epic?
RE: Gloves
# Mar 01 2003 at 2:01 AM Rating: Decent
i agree i am tired of hearing other people say how someone else should play there class just because they think they are playing it wrong if a caster wants to try to melee let them it is there choice to do so if they get killed it is there fault but if they kill it then who is to say they are not playing there class right. so for those of you with no lives telling others how to live thers try worrying about your life and how you do stuff not how someone else is liveing there life.
Who Should Get It
# Sep 22 2002 at 11:59 AM Rating: Excellent
Silly arguement. If you get this item it will be a raid effort. The guild will decide who gets it based oh who has what and who will it will benifit in a raid setting. Or in the cases of guilds on point systems who ever bids highest for it. These could benift any of a number of classes. Most guilds doing this raid will have alot of better items for many of there members.

My 2 cents

#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 08 2002 at 10:50 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Simply put...these are some of the highest +mana gloves in the game....that alone makes them better for casters, there are several 41% haste items out there ;p but 75+ mana gloves? at least for a druid, there are next to NONE. The best gloves i've seen are my PoG quest glvoes with 50 mana and NO hp which hurts actaully.
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 09 2002 at 9:44 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I'm sorry but 25 extra mana does not come close to making up for the fact that 41% haste goes to waste on a druid.. These are not caster gloves but Ranger/Shadow Knight/Paladin gloves..

At the level you are killing yeli most of your guild will have 41% haste, though these gloves are nice for every class except monks pretty much. :P

no good for monk?

Actually, people tend to forget that by the time you are in a situation (as a monk) where this will be dropping, your guild's enchi's haste will be overwriting our epic haste. That taken into consideration, these gaunts are much better than our epic minus the haste effect. The only reason monks kept their epics equiped so long was for soloing purposes, which has all but been eliminated in the recent patches. You may begin to see monks wanting in on some of these higher end gaunts now.

Wrong, monk epic effect is a bard song

Yes, it is song haste that doesn't stack with other song haste or with spell haste, with the exception of "over the cap" haste songs.

For the most part, bard haste and chanter haste do NOT stack.

you don't know what monk epic does, rofl
monk epic is a bard song that wills stack with other haste items. in other words this item don't suck for monks, just that it would do more good for ANYOTHER class then a monk, yes it has 0 wt, yes it has 30 ac, big deal. everything with 0.0 wt isn't meant for a monk, learn more of your class before ya start posting stuff that you have no idea about.
Right, not a monk item
# Sep 04 2002 at 11:55 PM Rating: Default
Uh, why wouldn't a monk get these gloves? 0.0 weight... If I were a monk and someone said you don't really need them, I would donkey punch em. Or is it Dragon punch?
RE: Right, not a monk item
# Sep 07 2002 at 1:26 PM Rating: Default
Simply because of your epic which goes in the hands slot. Would sort of be a waste... most hand items don't go to monks due to that fact. They'd be ahead to get another haste item that goes in that slot. Don't get me wrong, it's nice for monks, but why give up that 40% haste that stacks with permanent haste??
