At 70th level, look into better gear or if you still need haste, look into ___ of pure haste augments, i.e.

I believe this belt also drops off the coldspine seahorses as well. It's VERY rare, but it does.

Lol the funniest thing about these posts on almost every item/subject on the site is, the first to or three posts have info pertaining to the main item/subject next thing you know people are comparing who can tank/Bash/smash/Mezz/DC what ever else is in the zone. Then off on another topic about how Ubba you are with all your loots from all over Norrath. Well to be honest nobody really cares .... and we all come here to check the stats/drop mob/class usability.
I especially get a kick out of those repeated posts --> How much haste does it have <--- Hmmm gee there is a fricken linked pic at the top of the page which is the first thing you see. Or are you running some special program that bumps you 3 pages down into this mire of crap when the screen loads up. Anyway kill any and all fish/swordfish you find track cuz he shows up where he wants. When you engage BACK to the WALL and do you best to land slow. Killed him 4 times 60 Sk 55 Rng Duo (Rng Epic Slow lands maybe 45 % of the time). And for you who say "if your down here killing him you should have better already or your making a charity run," BITE ME !! I have played EQ since Beta and I have every Expansion and it is by choice that I hunt only the old World ... I dont need to be Ubber ... PoT / Elem geared. Because I play for fun ... I have a job already and wont sell my soul to a Massive Raiding guild just so I can Pranec around and LINK my Crap. [Black]Well, I am done now ..... please feel free to flame my Spelling/Punctuation/Content, it helps pin point what class/style of a player you are.
Feel free to nail me with your flames .. check my spelling .. punctuation .. what ever makes you happy. I am not here for an E-***** building Experience ... these forums are for info not Ego's.

How to get the belt...

1) Find a way to kill seahorses/fish in the water in siren's grotto. Make it a decent way so that when you actually spawn Fellspine you can kill him without adds.

2) MR debuffs and slow or a pet tank. You will get knocked around bigtime if you dont slow this guy and he summons.

3) Camp site. Like listed below, any seahorse location that can also spawn fish will spawn Fellspine. I pulled the 4 at Cobalt scar zone and one or two from the downleft passage looking inward into Siren's Grotto.

If you keep the goof ups like bad pull timing to a minimum you should be able to kill 4 or 5 seahorse/fish plus the zonein bulthar/molkor and the servant at zonein clear. This is with pretty minimal dps (40ish?) Often you will find other ppl camping Fellspine. Be considerate and swim around to the right and kill some of those seahorses instead, they all make the same mob and if yer nice enough not to bother the campers they will most likely be nice enough not to try to ks you if Fellspine pops from one of your mobs.

Fellspine info:
Max hit 256, does not hit max hit often.
Melee mitigation: does not absorb damage any better than yer average seahorse really.
Speed: Hits pretty fast even slowed. Most you can slow him is 'Mostly' I dont know how much that is in relation to the max enc slow and shm slow, but either way I'd reccommend mr debuffs if you can get them.
Run at low hp? : Nope. The seahorses no longer run at low hps. If you are familiar with SG before vamp, they used to and it was bad cuz cant snare or root.
Hitpoints: Little more than other lvl 53 seahorses if at all, not very noticeable.

Visit for further Fellspine comments.

Its hard to tell if belt haste works from level one. I suspect they do from my twinking experiences, but the only way i know to find out would be to log a fight with a long delay weapon with and without the item at level one. Also, if it did not increase your haste but more than 1 or 2 percent, it could be that it adds a little each level until the level of effect listed on the item is reached. Either way if yer twink has one of these, yer covered on haste.

just wanting some info i run the program yalp to check in on my characters on what they are doin in the game. on my monk before lvl 33 was doin 24 dmg per second with this belt on and a pair of silver chittins that i have just never taken off. after making lvl 33 i cleared the log and fought some rechecked and still was doing 24 dmg per second. is the lvl for effect on this belt actually 33? Or is it lower or higher? i would expect to see the dmg per second to change at lvl 33 when the higher haste kicks in but it didn't change any ideas or info on this

# Apr 17 2004 at 5:30 AM Rating: Decent
oops meant to say attack delay from yalp says 24 not dmg per second the attack delay was 24 before and after lvl 33

Was in SG today, maybe 3 hours, my group 56 warrior, me, 56 Cleric and 65 chanter had no problem with this guy, he was easy. 1st time dropped belt, which I own, 2nd was mask, 3rd was tail, after another hour he hadn't respawned and we left.

Words of advice, He summons, rampages and doubles for 400. Do not try this one at home, also was unable to change run speed.

Hmmm no way he hits for 400 ; I soloed him a few times last month as a 65 shaman , he was just hitting for 256 ( I sat down a few times to test the max hit ) , and can be partially slowed . He summons but never saw a rampage on my pet ; maybe it's rare though , I dropped him quickly everytime so can not say much .
He can now spawn everywhere in the zone , assuming every swordfish/seahorse is a potential PH . I saw him 3 times in 3 differents places , even in the zone in , in front of me .

3 kills , 3 belts ; low level friends were happy .
Effective Level?

All the other hate Items I've seen have an effective level of 1 for the haste % to kick in ... this is listed as level 33 for effect.

I'm assuming that that is just the level used to calculate the Item's Haste %. Can someone confirm this?

Which would be best for a 45 warrior.

Cloak of Flames or Spiked seahorse hide belt?

The belt is a little cheaper with 2% less haste than cloak and has lower but more evenly spread stats, but i'm not sure if the CoF would be worth the extra plat?

Can anyone help me?

no belt yet
# May 31 2003 at 12:04 AM Rating: Decent
So I've been researching stuff i can get for my monk, turns out this belt is by far thee best haste item I can get as a 63 mage with a couple friends, cle an dru.

at 34% haste with 4sta/25hp and many other stats it's better than RBB and RBG and most other haste items haste% AND stat wise, the cloak of crystalline waters is 2% more haste, but has terrible stats (no hp/sta) and I'm not gonna be soloing any dragons (i dont think =P) Cloak of flames is nice 36% haste and 50hp, again, no dragons for me tho.

So I read and study, the posts on fellspine are helpful in the illias bestiary part. what they leave out is that it is hard to get here, breaking in I died once, and get 2 mobs a few times. At 63 50% of the stuff is light blue here. until they do that exp change patch anyway, where lvl 50 stuff is blue to 65.. then it will be really hard to break this i think.. many assists with all blues as opposed to light blue/green

the place is guarded by enchanters and clerics (enthralled molkars) and melee fish. All of these agro on the way down the well, and the bad pathing is fixed so no /camp for joo.

once you get inside, its easy to stay here forever, which i have done.. my friends helped me break it, then left. I camp out in the water with eb items on of course =) and log in the next day to start camp again. 28 min spawns (omg so boring). so if you spend 10 hrs here you only get about 18 or 19 chances at the pop (you wont be getting it the instant it spawns, it wanders and can spawn deep in and take a few min to get to whereever you are)

so anyways.. I've been at this boring camp for 4 nights now, about 8-12 hrs each night. I have seen 5 fellspine, I got 3 masks, 1 chestpiece, and 1 whip. This belt might have been made the rare drop. If you get it, think long and hard about getting rid of it.

fellspine requires me to cast a couple pets sometimes if i fall behind in healing.

Dont fall for anyone telling you what its worth and talking you down in price, its a nightmare camp and it is better than most other haste items sold in bazaar =) hopefully one day i'll get this dang ellusive belt =/

i'm bored caming this thing right now can you tell?
welp.. i think ph is due up soon, so i best be off.

ive just read kalendas post and he mentions about autosplit and how if 4pp 4gp 8sp and 12cp dropped then the first guy got 1pp and the last one got a few sp and a few cp - well id just like to point out that it doesent actually happen that way, in fact if the grp is a full grp of 6 ppl then the guy who looted will get the full 4pp and the 4gp while the sp and cp would be divided with the rest of the grp becuse autosplit only splits each amount if the number of coins dropped is higher than the amount of ppl in the grp.

Who among you signed a disclaimer or contract after buying the CD(s), installing the game, and shelling out the funds to play EQ, that stated : "I, the under-signed, do hereby agree to forfeit any "loot" or opportunity to acquire said "loot" if another class may use it ( more frequently / more efficiently / etc. ) or benefit more from any number of it's functions based solely on the grounds of Class, Race, Gender, Level, or Current Fashion, of my character in comparison to any other character present."..?
Give over already. It's a Multi-player game, intended to sucker you into playing it so those that created, coded, and funded it, can retire, buy nice things in the Real World, and get their kids braces, clothing, and college tuitions.
All this aside... If it is more than a game to you, you should apply to SOE because if you work at working half as hard as you "work" at playing you're a shoe-in for employee of the month Every month, regardless what you do for a living and where. =D
Now, I have seen Fellspine spawned in the entry to one of the tunnels and then "x" amount of time later (time really does fly when you're having fun) someone called out that 'Fellspine was down' and 'Grats to "so-and-so" on their new belt' (insert muttered expletives here).
So in conclusion. It's NOT a static spawn. Chance has a hand here as it does almost everywhere else.
Game on...

Lol right. I have a 62 druid with uber gear and there is no way in hell this can be solo'd by a druid. It hits for 200+ and is immune to changes in run speed (no snare or root), and has very high MR. You MUST have tash or malo and slow, or enough tankage and healing to take him unslowed. A lvl 60 druid would get eaten in seconds. I did with my 63 chanter, 55 bard, and 61 druid and it was a close fight - druid and chanter died and bard lived with 20%. Getting him slowed took OOS with DotB equipped plus tash from chanter, then I had to mez him and cast slow about 5 times before it landed. Then during the fight my druid kept getting aggro cause bards aren't tanks :) I let my druid HP get a little too low, and he switched targets to druid and proceeded to bash the living snot out of me, I could not get any spells off cause he bashes so much even slowed. I kept bard on him and slowed him again with chanter. Chanter went down after druid, then it was bard's turn. He was at 6% bard was almost full. Took him down before I died. Tough fight.

#REDACTED, Posted: May 11 2003 at 2:59 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) think this could be done with a lvl 65 chanter an a lvl 65 druid an a 50 warrior chantie and druid in ubah gear (thunderous belts of aura or whatever etc gear like that) So it would be 2 dire charmed animals me a lvl 50 warrior? I think we can do it, we have took down the anarcist down in acrylia caversn and he hits a hell of alot harder then you said about fellspine, the anarcist was hiting me from anywhere from 200dmg to 509 tops. Alot of 300's and yes i did die for that fight, but i was more of a dmg shield then anything, enjoying my new toy which u can see equiped in main hand of my warrior =)

Joke to kill. took him out with 1 60 sk, warrior, chanter and lveel 54 cleric. dropped bp on frist go, and haste belt on second. IF you are down here taking this guy out, u all have better, and its probably going to your alts, or you are on a charity run helping out some guy with nothing. it is 34% haste so better than rbg and rbb (for haste).

"ever notice that only Melees call for NBG?"
No, let's start with Golden Efreeti Boots, what melee would call NBG?

And have you ever killed Cazic Thule? Would be a pretty retarded raid to give the Brain to a melee. Sure it's 100 hp, it's also FT IV, any melee that got that would be the laughing stock of the server.

besides, if you have the **** to take CT, id really hope your guild doesnt random on these things... id like to think anyone big enough to take CT would allocate based on need, or used a type of DKP to bid on an item. the brain really isnt a good example of NBG. the boots however only cost a couple K, and are really not worth arguing over imo. i would only roll on an item if no one in the group needed it :)

now as for the belt or the boots, well, they are 1 groupable. i did the boots once at 45 with a chanter and a cleric, and once at 53 with just a bst duo. this guy is next on my hit list, but i'm sure it doesnt require raid force to take him out, thus NBG only would really apply if everyone in the group agreed to it..

Totally agree with you Ziku... to emphasize your point (and mine).... as a 60 cleric, I have spent ALOT of time in Seb, and have seen RBGs (hasted belts) drop 5 times in my party. EVERY time, I was not allowed to roll on it, it was rolled on by melees. Did I complain?? No, I figured NBG sounds fair, and sooner or later it would work for me.

Wow, I am so tired of hearing the constant whining from anyone about NBG or Full Random. Everyone at one point will come across an item that their class can use. To say that 80-85% of the gear is generated towards one type is really shallow. Your just hunting in the wrong place. You choose to hunt where something you cant use drops, then you have noone to blame but yourself. I have both casters and melee for characters, so I know the pains of gathering equipment for both. Rather than sit around writing out sob stories and bickering how your getting the short end of the stick. Use this site, look up where something you want drops and go there. NBG and Full Random both work. You just have to state your opinion prior to loot dropping. I have no problem seeing a haste item going to a melee or a robe going to a caster. Sure the person in a month could get a new haste item or a new robe. Who cares? I bet you would have a big smile if something dropped you needed and without a thought it was awarded to you. Time to give some attitudes a check and become a bit more positive....after all...the items arent real....think about what you are actualy working yourself up about.

Complete BS.

You probably have a very selective memory. I have a 56 warrior, and NBG always in guild groups, and usually in pick-up's. spells drop all the time, and you NEVER hear a melee asking for em unless they have an alternate that needs. Even then, if someone in the group needs it they get first shot at it. Same with any of the caster usable stuff.

NBG is established before a group starts. You should always ask when you join a pick-up group how loot is distributed. If they say NBG, and thats not your style then find another group... period. Don't get all huffy if you didn't ask about NBG, and something nice drops which doesnt happen to fit your need.

We had a froglok bonecaster robe drop in seb and without a second thought it went to the enchanter, who needed it. He didn't ask about loot policy and was embarrassed that we would just give it to him. With the exception of him, the group was a guild group and thats how we operate. My friend gets pick-up groups in CT, and they roll on everything. You get to roll even if you already won something. as long as everyone knows what the policy is going in, no one is unhappy. Both styles work, but if you are against NBG, state that up front before something nice drops. That gives the group a chance to either adjust the policy or find someone else.

RE: shut up idiots
# Mar 08 2003 at 12:33 AM Rating: Default
I agree with your opinion except on spells. The reason spells arnt argued over are the fact that you cant trade a spell from alt to alt, and you cant twink a char with it. Its on an ENTIRLY different playing field then something like armor and weapons, and to compare them with such is completely absurd. If you have to respond asking "Why, they have value" then your entirly missing the point.
# Aug 06 2002 at 1:13 PM Rating: Default
I'm a 58 warrior.. and all I hear is whine whine whine, nothing about actually obtaining it.

Listen, I'd like to know how to get to this guy's spawn point and what his PHs are.

As far as who gets it, in a guild only group or raid, fine, NBG, but if it is a pickup group everyone rolls on it.

Yeah, you might be able to use it more than that caster in your group, but bull, they deserve a roll for their time too. Yeah, we have expensive equipment to buy, but don't they have expensive equipment AND spells to buy too?

It's people like those who are arguing here about it should be defaulted to them that give melees a bad name. Get a clue, without casters we wouldn't get far. You eventually get as much equipment as you put effort in for.

Get a clue and accept it.

Have killed him in two seperate spots. I would guess his placeholder is normal seahorse, because that is what we were killing a load of when we got him. Once was near waterfall, and other was in one of the tunnels (sorry i forget which).

I think the best thing to do is take a strong group 55+, or a couple groups 50+ and just start killing the seahorses. After a while you will see him on track. From what I have heard, people have found him near the waterfall alot... but personally I think thats because people farm flawless diamonds at the chute, and probably end up killing seahorses there along the way.

Bluntz N'Speed here. On Innoruuk this item is farmed, there are 5 - 10 people who know where Fellspine spawns. He can be solo'd by a 60 Necro or Druid, and duo'd with Healer/Melee combos. I myself dont know where it spawns, but when you see the same person selling Spiked Seahorse Belts every day, you should annoy him until he tells you then tell the rest of us.

Bluntz cuz of my 1hbs, n Speed cuz of my seahorse hasted self =)
