#REDACTED, Posted: May 09 2002 at 6:01 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Am a melee class & Str. is nice....would go nice with my Yellow Fang Earring....AC 30. Anyway would be good for any melee class. Could understand why monk would like it...but really how much do earrings weigh anyway...Being a warrior think it should go to the main tank classes. But thats just my opinion & I'll shut up now.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 13 2002 at 6:00 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You should have shut up before you openend your mouth. Str is easily maxed with buffs, you just wanted to show off that you'd got a yellowfang earring.

Str may be easy to max with items, but often of the expense of other stats.. I have had to sacrifice STR for my dex, so items with a LARGE chunk of str are more than weelcome... And yes, rangers need str.. it increases your atk rating. ATK = DPS...

RE: Not a monk either thank GAWD

he said with buffs not items. its easy with items, even easier with buffs. stamina and hp should be a focus. if you're raiding, youll be at or near max str and dex anyways once your all buffed up. its a non issue. your resists, your HP (and therefor stamina) are what will influence your survivability (reducing healing load on the healersnot assigned to the tank, and that helps the raid), and the longer that you survive, the more dps you do anyways. and once you can self buff 200atk and get a\even more from other spells stackoing on, the lil bit you get from str, is also, a non-issue.
Earring has changed!!!

Truesight is a cross between see invisible, and a really good sight spell. It basically just lets you see absolutely everything. Hope that helps!

Truesight combines Ultravision and See Invisible.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 03 2001 at 11:11 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This item is great for anyone! that's a lot of str to pack in one lil ear bauble. Nice earring.

Its a Earring for crying out loud all jewlery has like a 0WT if ya haven't noticed
# Jun 29 2001 at 9:15 AM Rating: Default
So is all other jewelery "monk only", they weigh 0.1

I got some flasks of water the other day, I feel ashamed cause they are monk only but I am drinking them.


I'm jsut pissed that Enchanters can't wear this, would think that since its jewelery it would be enchanter only. Bah!

I think its ultravision and see invis in one. Like the visual effect you get from accumen.
What's It Proc?

Getting away from all this hair pulling, screaming chaos, here is a sane topic. What is truesight?
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 18 2001 at 3:53 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) It's a freakin earring, that's why there is 0.0 weight you stuppid retards.
monk vs. everyother class
# Jun 18 2001 at 2:52 AM Rating: Decent
I have to agree with the people who say that they are getting tired about monks saying that any item that has a high AC, and a low wieght should be monk only. Some items like the ancient wyvern hide tunic that has 40 AC and zero wieght, yea I can see that going to a monk, because warriors have bp that have higher AC's, and are better, but with an item like this, there is nothing better, for anyone. There isn't another earing that comes close to having 18 Ac, and last I checked, Warriors, pallies, sk's, bards, and rogues also need large amounts of AC.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 17 2001 at 5:57 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) why is this a monk item? 18ac is good for any class....the 0.0 wieght doesnt make this a monk item you stupid ******* newbies
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 16 2001 at 11:14 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Wow! Look at the weight! This is a monk item for sure!
RE: Bob
# Sep 07 2002 at 3:18 AM Rating: Decent
Yup as a monk i sure am tired of those 20 weight ear slots lol.<Sarcasm is a great tool>

If you need seek advice here i am, i you need an example go elsewhere friend.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 14 2001 at 1:58 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Why do all of these message boards turn into fights about stupid stuff and why this should be Monk only or this Warrior only and what not. If anyone took the time to take their head out of their *** and look at what it takes to do the quest for this I'd say that any class that can use this and do the quest has every right to have it. I mean, come on, an 18AC earring! Hell, I'd like it for my cleric but I can't use it so I won't ***** about the fact that I can't use it. Good luck to anyone who does this quest, you have gotten yourself IMO the best melee earring in the game, enjoy it. Just my 2cp
RE: Useful Posts Anyone?
# Dec 09 2001 at 2:24 AM Rating: Decent
Actually the best melee earring would be Vyrinn's Earring of Insanity, but to get this earring you need to be a Dragon allied guild. The AC and str/sv fire is nice but it would be a whole lot better with HP or stamina on it.
RE: Useful Posts Anyone?
# Feb 04 2002 at 10:32 AM Rating: Decent

I'll even go so far as to say this is a better tank earring than any other class.

Wait a minute

On behalf of monks, this is the stupidest thing Ive seen, were baffling over what clas wants this? um, okay, why? whats truesight? how hard is it to get this item...people, get a brain, im an old school monk, and im dirt tired of these newbie monks bringing in there crappy twinks and stuff, getting power leveled to 60 and getting epics when they join there "uber" guild, You wouldnt believe how many monks I run into that say that I suck, because I dont have good equip, SORRY THAT I HAVE A HEART, you people on this bored that are arguing about this, are pathetic, I wish I could post this message on every board in the EQ world. And once more, for everyones sake, THIS IS ONLY A GAME, and once you have a heart, this is a game, every class that could wear this item would love to. Anyways, Id love to know what truesight is, ive seen it on plentish items../shrug
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 19 2001 at 2:36 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) umm this is the best malee earring ive ever seen. and about the monk comment, the only reason why there are so many monk twinks is that thier gear is relatively cheap compared to caster gear. wish my bard could have it. after all, he can use it
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 14 2001 at 3:00 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Well put Shela!

Truesight is a combination of see invisible and ultravision.

#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 14 2001 at 7:13 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ROFL! this is better than my rygorr bm im wearing :P
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 14 2001 at 6:27 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) To chill down the debate , and to have thoses who yell on monks to shut up , fact isnt to determine wich class goes the best with this )%(!"&£% earring , but how verant manipulates your greedy instincts of *WOW i want that *****.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 14 2001 at 2:01 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hi, I'm a Mage. I can't even wear this, but I SHOULD GET A CHANCE AT IT CUZ IT"S GOT NO WEIGHT AND I'M JUST A WUSSY CASTER!!!!! I NEED IT FOR WHEN I MELEE!!!! No seriously, if it wasn't no drop, i'd give it to my pet. thank you and have a nice day.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 14 2001 at 9:26 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You can give no drops to pets.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 15 2001 at 1:43 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) if you give it to your pet it will be kill the item. and still it will not do anything. only weapons will do stuff for pets. (and sheilds)
RE: I'm not a monk. Give ME this item
# Jun 16 2001 at 3:18 AM Rating: Default
Then why does a summoned mask that goes in face slot work for them?
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 18 2001 at 1:36 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) That's a special exception for mage pets - one non-weapon summoned item.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 14 2001 at 12:05 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) THE MONK OF COURSE!! Sheesh, anyone who says this ISN'T monk only is crazy and has obviously never solo'd king Krmozek like me!! and boy, this earing sure woulda help cause he has a nasty cold DD that hits everything around him. Haha, then i zoned outa of Keel Drackel right into wester wastes and slayed Yelnik and went into ToV with my Afterlife bro's and Killed Zlandicar! so see?? monks CAN TANK, suck it!!!
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 14 2001 at 12:06 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This is the best post i have ever seen. i wish i could frame it.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 14 2001 at 4:48 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Print it out, then frame it :)
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 13 2001 at 11:51 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ya know what... I would wager a good amount of cash that any guild that kills tormax is going to... give this to a Warrior first. Monks are nice and all and need good gear, but if your primary tank isn't in the best eq possible, you don't get to kill anything new. So whoever makes all the monk comments get your head out of your ***** and wake up.
# Jun 13 2001 at 10:10 PM Rating: Default
All I can say is... Holy *&%$!

18 AC on the EAR?!? +15 Strength? +20 Fire save?

I can't think of a single Melee class that would gladly give up what they were wearing for this item. Not a one. I don't care how much mana it gives you, you can give up half of it (or put it on the other ear) and this would just *rock.*
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 13 2001 at 11:52 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Give up something I'm wearing for this item? Are you crazy? I'd give my left nut...hell they can take both of 'em for this ;)
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 19 2001 at 2:37 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) so you would cut off your balls for this earring?
Monks & Rogues
# Jun 13 2001 at 9:37 PM Rating: Default
Hi Me again, you know the I HATE NBG guy. Hehe... I play a 51st season Rake and I have a Shammy & Monk twink (The Shammy for SoW potions, the Monk for guild CR when H & S are no good and no other Monkies around ... I digress). Rogues and Monks are great classes. Rogues can be very versatile and Monks are gods for pulls and certain CRs. I know (now) about the running Monk joke. (BTW haha) But, I have to say some really bonehead chatter goes on here bashing classes and trying to determine best class for an item Blah, blah, blah. I am not "Uber Lord" (God save me from that ignoble fate.) You know how I got to be 51st? (No, wiseguy, not Ebay) As a Rogue I trained all of my combat skills (Cept HtH) to max. Doing so allowed me to enjoy all of the cool items avail to me... all of them. I have had fun and I leveled to 51 in 1 year (I have a job and a life)
My point... (finally you say) Have fun, quit griping.

#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 13 2001 at 9:17 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Wendail Wolfbane is a newbie, I guess you wouldn't know, because you are stupid, that more the half the post that are "Monk item!" are from people trying to make fun of monks.
Regarding monks
# Jun 13 2001 at 9:12 PM Rating: Default
OK you monks are getting what you deserve after millions of posts of "MONK ONLY." If ya cant deal with us making fun of your stupid posts then ya shoulda thought of that before. So heres a compromise -
Shut the hell up monks.

#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 14 2001 at 8:59 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) What the Hell is wrong with you people? Just because there are a couple of dumbassed n00bs going around posting a bunch of ******** you flame the entire monk community? Boy, you sure are smart. You must have the reasoning powers of a two year-old. (That is, taking what five to 15 people post here and applying it to 5000+)
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 22 2001 at 3:41 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) actually I know quite a few 'uber guilded' 57+ monks who are exactly that way.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 14 2001 at 11:30 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) you guys make me laugh, if you think this item isnt good, you should quit EQ and die mauahahahah!!! 18ac <for an earring? WOW!>, +20 sv fire (very nice!) +15 str! holy !@)@!%!!! and even has an effect but who knows what it does, anyone here know? i think this could be one of the best tank earrings in the game.
