Bootstrapping quests on the edge

100 faction is not large, but it might be enough to allow you to get some quests which grant faction to the same faction as the quest giver if you already have that faction.
After completing the quest, you might not need the pendant anymore.
still dropping?

Thought I get one for a darn quest which needs faction.
Cleared a couple of times all Councilors in Icewell Keep - no pendant.
Rough method to ruin the faction there :(

Pendant Crafting?

Is this something that you have to craft as a custom pendant or how does it work. It is definitely a shaman thing?

This thing works with SoF faction merchants, for example if i am amiable with fangbreakers the clickie can get me to high faction?

Almost certainly not :(. Nowadays the faction spells and clickies only work on mobs you can cast on, which basically excludes every quest and vendor npc post-pop. You will find a few exceptions, but they will be few in number, and besides the fangbreakers are definitely not included. The simple test is if you can agro it, you can cast alliance on it.

The other issue is that 100 faction isn't all that much. Typically a mob kill counts for 1 faction, so casting alliance would have raised you a theoretical 100 faction hits while the spell lasts. While that sounds like a lot, its easier to make the kills than farm the necklace!
faction hits seem harsh

Just today I killed about 8 councilors to get one necklace to drop.

Faction -
went from amiable to apprehensive with Coldain
stayed dubious with Dain Frostreaver IV

If it raises faction by 100, does that mean you can click it 4 times and raise faction to 400?

nope, it's effectively a buff that you put on the creature.

Still drops
# Aug 20 2004 at 11:52 PM Rating: Decent
Still drops as of 8/19/2004, although not as common as some of the below posts would indicate. I had to kill 8 or 9 councilors before it dropped.

Can you bring this item somewhere to have it recharged or is there a reagent that can be made to recharge it?
2 Versions

For the first week of Velious, this item had unlimited charges. There are about 3 copies of this ultra rare version on my server.
Yup, still drops
# Mar 12 2004 at 9:01 PM Rating: Decent
Yes, it still drops as of Feb 2004.

RE: still dropping?
# Jun 11 2003 at 3:34 PM Rating: Default
Stop killing Juliah and start killing the mobs that drop it. All the Councilor's drop this as there cmon drop. Have only had one out of 10 or so not drop one.

Alliance plus charm = KOS to amiable

Alliance is handier than you'd think if used well. NOT for bumping your faction up one level, that can be done easily enough. But rather, for getting you from KOS to amiable with an enchanter's help. Consider some quest you'd like to do but you're KOS and have to make it to at least amiable. If an enchanter charms a mob that mob then registers indifferent to those around him. Add alliance, and voila! you're amiable. Turn in your quest items, take that desired reward, and tuck this little baby in the bank for the next time it comes up. Insta overseer hammer for goody twoshoes is just the beginning. When used with an enchanter, these do very well as a poor man's puppet strings.

If Chanter A charms a mob and chanter B casts any sort of Alliance spell on this mob then the mob will con INDIFFERENT to B. Never higher.
With and without duel mode.

Charmed mobs are considered "factionless" and follow the same rules. Just like uncharmed factionless mobs, they are completely unaffected by the Alliance line.

Necro/ench paralyzing earth
# Jul 19 2002 at 4:25 PM Rating: Default
Paralyzing earth sucks for necro's cause any dmg done in that particular root has a very good chance of it breaking, while a chanter would love it for root parking before a mez, cause it lasts a real long time, if it doesnt break. for necro's regular root is the best really, has the highest chance of not breaking, and is fast and mana effecient.

P.S. yes i know any root has a chance of breaking with dmg done, but the later roots have a much higher chance, they are best for parking mobs
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 14 2002 at 9:39 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Im sorry people but who cares about all that go to a general forum for that crap its a good item period nice Cha nice WIs and it has a very nice effect that would help any person in all ever quest no matter what even if it was a chanty less mana to spend so drop the subject you guys are acting like 2 year olds get a LIFE!!!
A sweet neck item

I replaced my Crysoberyl Talisman for this piece of lovely! The Alliance effect is excellent! Haven't had to use it yet, but I know it will come in handy someday.

The wisdom stats are also superb! If you check my journal, you will see I've had this item ear-marked for acquisition.

And so my collection days continue...
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 12 2001 at 8:48 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I am very motivated to purchase this on the Veeshan server if anyone is interested in selling it. I am willing to offer 10Kpp for it or $100.00 cash. Email me at if interested.

Not interested in stats at all but its effect. Borrowed one for my nec and it said:

1 - must be worn to use (no biggie, it's all/all)
2 - you're not of sufficient level to use this item

Those who've used it, what level were you when you used it? (No need to post a level if it's greater than a response in this thread)
