Another Helm...?
# Apr 20 2009 at 6:13 PM Rating: Decent
A quick update.. for a lark I popped "square helm" into the bazaar tool earlier today not expecting anything. Surprise!! One pops up for 4500p. I was totally amazed and ran there post haste and bought it. Kinda felt bad for the poor fool, but only for a moment, lol. I had just recently made a Drak Magician and he is 46 atm. Just to see what the helm would look like I put it on him. Wow! It is a really neat dragon plate helm. Hmmm... dunno, but I might just have to keep it for him. Ok, the stats are pretty lame compared to other stuff, but...

Anyway, cheers and enjoy!

Don't you wish you had a Square Helm?
# Mar 20 2009 at 2:03 PM Rating: Decent
Years and years ago, I got my square helm off a random mob in Skyshrine. Been so long that I have no idea what it was at the time. I subsequently gave it to my druid and he has worn it ever since. I don't know what happened to all the other square helms in the game, but this item does now appear to be one of the rarest in the game. My druid is only 65 atm and prolly won't go much above 70 as I only really use him for a bot for levelling my other toons or to buff. But I will never swap this helm out. It is so unique looking.. as far as I know I am the only druid on Emarr that has one. The stats are pretty bad compared to the gear that is easily available, but I just put a nice aug in it and called it Macaroni (if ya catch my drift :-) People are always asking me what it is.. and then can't believe it when I tell them..

Anyway, its nice to have something like this.. wouldn't sell it for anything!
Cheers all

I spent three hours or so being lost and roamin around in skyshrine last night in search of the fe`dhar to kill for this helm! Not to mention the countless hours before that ha! But on this attempt I did finally find them, and geuss what, you can't hit them, they don't take dmg, and don't aggro no matter what I do!! So you stupid QUEST NPC'S!!!!!!!! I will wait for you, oh yes I will wait, bastards!! That being said, this entire list of names, well not entire, but the fe'dhar are crap, there non existant, and I did get the feeling from some of the research I was doing that this zone was totally changed around, and that these npc may have been taken outta game. Does anyone know where this helm drops now!! does anyone know if its on something else??? does anyone know?? whaaa I say, whaaaa

I got this today from a named wyvern in the 3 spawn little back room by the first bridge on the way to maze. I'm extreemly happy because this will allow me to single pull the dragons outside of ToV with harmony (in my expirience the normal range to cast harmony is the same as their agro radius.) And, even more importantly, I can use it to harmony Sontalak so that my guildmates can pass by him unharmed without needing to CoTH or risk someone's life training him away! I've seen other Rangers and druids use these harmony tactics but in the past when I have tried I've gotten agro the second I get in harmony range, I'm excited to try again using this and hope I'm right!

Mob that drops helm?
# Aug 13 2002 at 5:20 PM Rating: Default
Did Anyone Everfigure out what mob this Dropped off of in Skyshrine? Or, is it random off any mobs in the zone?
changed the effect
# Jun 06 2002 at 11:04 AM Rating: Good
The effect used to be good as Improved Damage III. But in the June 6th patch, they changed it to Extended Range III and that sucks IMO.

Well you have obviously never started casting a Complete Heal and had the Warrior move just out of range at the last second.

Healing ranges vary alot by spell, anything that will let my Cleric heal at a greater distance is awesome. So basically soloing Druids should not complain about how useless this is.
RE: changed the effect
# Sep 09 2002 at 10:38 PM Rating: Default
Funny thing is that I'm a soloing druid that searched out an extended range 3 item. Need it for my quading spell at 49.

Not that I would complain about damage 3 though.

Maybe so but this helmet was still much better for a druid with dmg 3 on it. It added 130 dmg to my level 56 nuke.

# Feb 14 2003 at 5:27 AM Rating: Decent
Is there n e semi easily attainable Dam:III piece of equipment? or a healing III that isn gonna take Ascent power guilds to attain? I already did the Afliction III quest with the dorfs and giants and im desperate to find more focus items and am kinda sorta broke right now so paying 15 KPP for this is outta the question... n e 1 have n e suggestions? (or is this too hard to get to for a lvl 56 druid solo?) well n e way n e more info on focus III items would be much appreciated. thanx a lot all
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 02 2002 at 1:11 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Poor quad kiting druid. /insert fake azz sympathy here. Now ya gotta work a little bit (very little bit) to kill those 4 mobs that I can't even kill one of. My heart bleeds, violins play, angels play harps and shiit.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 11 2002 at 10:50 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Why is it a druid always has to complain about some item being better for them. I bet if it had 0.0 wt a monk would be all over it
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 05 2002 at 11:15 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This helm now has Increased Damage III, which makes it ALOT more valuble. With this on my 688 point DD now hits for 811. >:)
#StrungOut, Posted: Jun 06 2002 at 9:30 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) unfortunately it didn't last long and has been changed to increased Range III which basically blows for a druid.
Range 3 IS good
# Aug 02 2002 at 4:22 PM Rating: Decent
I would LOVE to have a range 3 item for my wizzy. Not only that, but I think these items are excellent for Clerics. That extra 15% range means they can stay out of any nasty AoE's that you tend to see with higher level mobs.

I am going to put a squeez on my guild and get some of these items for our clerics. The Helm is great for clerics while the Supple Scale Wristband is good for both Wis And Int Casters.

I think people are just starting to wake up to how much these new focus items change how you can play the various casting classes. It's not as obvious as the new weapons, but IMHO, just as or even more effective...

I hate to advocate quadding... but doesn't the extended rage just make it easier and more efficient to quad?

It can for certain mobs that are still fast while snared. If were talking about wyverns in cs (standard quadding mobs) then it dosnt really make any difference. It does mean you dont have to judge the distance quite so accurately yourself but if youve been quadding for a little while you can pretty much get the distance right all the time.

I receieved this item yesterday and My-O-My !!! Does it not look fabulous on me! Hahaha

Worn on the new Luclin character model (Wood Elf Druid-Female) it looks very regal and yes certainly metalic. Nice and shinny.

The stats are pretty good too! If you ever wanted to stand out, wearing this helm is one way to go!
I am NEVER parting with it.

(Hmmm...wonder what the White Dragonscale Helm looks like)

Surprising that an item with plate look is wearable by all classes.

#REDACTED, Posted: May 01 2001 at 3:11 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) If it was a fake, then that means I'm seeing things, and unlike some of the idiots (I wont mention names) I dont smoke dope. Get off it, you're just jealous because you want one and are too stupid to figure out how to get it, or you just want to spoil everyone elses fun. Friggin little crybaby wannabe hardcore EQer..
