Everyone complains that a Druid doesn't have a good shield well what about this. Its alot better than what we Paladins get. Plus Druids get spells like Avatar that add 100+ to all melee stats, so stop complaining already.

Well, only because you insisted.

Yes, you're wrong, it does drop off Sevelak...
See for confirmation.

Link dead due to their guild disbanding - but it was a image of Sevelak's corpse and the loot shot.

There is now leather, chain, and all/all armor dropping with insane AC on them... Guildy said he found a profile of a druid on Xev (I think he said) that had over 4khp and 1400ac.

Seen monks and rangers with over that as well. Frightening, isn't it? The day a druid is SA, is the day I quit EQ...

You ppl (druids) complain that there giveing paladins new gear and nothing for you druids. This stuff isnt new gear, it has been in the game for 8 months like all of SoV. Its just now being discovered. As for druids needing mroe gear, do you really thing it would be for the ballence of the game if a druid could tank like a pally or SK? You can already Quad-Kite, some times even like more than 4 mobs. I have seen a single druid kite 10 mobs at the same time all even cons and he won. Granted they were weeker mobs, but he still did it. I as a pally can only solo one at a time, select even cons at level 52. Dont complain about lack of gear when you dont really need it.

i am just amazed at how people complain about such dumb things. when you play that certain class and get in higher levels you generally know most equiptment that you can use and cannot. you know that for each class you are going to have a lot of terrible items and then you find a nice awesome one here and there. to sit there and complain saying someone has a uber item just because the other classes uber item has not been discovered yet is just stupid. and the whole druid conversation? why complain about it , hell by now a druid can get equipt that he can use the items they wear to do all the fighting haha, shields that click ensnare, arms that dot , blah blah who needs mana at that point you can go all day long and never use mana , and at higher levels to a certain point everyone starts to get items like that wether it is a buff or a damage effect.
stop complaining about one classes very nice item because yours has not been found yet, its dumb and pointless.

uhmm Kilroth...
Some of the things you say makes no osense what so ever...

1) A druidīs AE spells only hit 4 mobs at a time.

2) Why does a druid need Uber equipment to AE kite ? (I seriosly think i can do it with my druid naked!)

3) Even though SoV is 8 month old, this is new equipment since itīs just been found now.

4) In SoV and Kunark, well even in all of EverQuest, druid are probaly the the class that can get least equipment compared to all of the other classes (Especially Clerics which can use almost everything).

So why dont you think before you write all this crap ?!?
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 13 2001 at 11:19 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hm.. Belluci.. some of the things YOU say make no sense.. maybe you should read his post a bit more carefully.
RE: Gear
# Aug 14 2001 at 3:15 AM Rating: Default
Yenzo... You seem to know even less than Kilroth.

1) Do you seriously think that a druid can take 10 even cons, by doin it 4 by 4 by 4 etc..??
Jesus Christ.. They would never have the mana to do so, IF you need to kill even cons you can maximum take on at a time (Here im talking about lvl 30 - 35) if your not twinked with alot of equipment. There is absolutly no way you can kill 10 even cons.

2) A druid should of course not tank like a Pally or a SK, but i dont thing there are any equipment like this for a druid in the game - Uber equipment only made for Druids.

3) In my opinion - When a item is discovered it is new - Regardless of when it was but in the game.

4) First of all, in compare to a lot of other classes druid havent got the same amount/uberness of equipment like other. Second, Verant didnīt make EverQuest to be a solo game, therefor it wasnīt their intention to make "AE kiteīs" - And by the way it isnīt that fun to AE kite, EverQuest is made to group up, not to solo.

So why dont you find a quiet corner and keep smokin your endo and sippin on yer juice huh? =)
RE: Gear
# Aug 14 2001 at 1:34 PM Rating: Default
I believe i said they were rather week mobs, just couse a mob is blue/even at 50 or 51, i guess is when druids get there next AE, dont mean it has multiple thousands of hp.

More to the point of my first post, even though i didnt state it properly, was to keep ppl from posting all this stuff about who gets the best junk. These forums are to record USEFULL information about rareity, location, obtainability and so on.
RE: Gear
# Aug 18 2001 at 4:05 PM Rating: Decent
I agree with Kilroth and Yenzo. SoV has been out for quite awhile, and while many items are just being posted, that doesn't mean that they are new. The possibilty of getting them has been there since SoV came out, making them not new items.

#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 09 2001 at 7:51 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Oh yeah, and to the peep who said they prefer druids in a group, you are not most people. Most people are most people, most people don't want a druid. How do I know this? Because whenever a cleric and me are LFG, the clerics gets the group, what about a shaman and me LFG? Shaman gets group. Bard and me LFG? What do you think? Wizard and me LFG? Wizard... Ranger and me LFG? well depends what the group needs ) My point is people prefer the things the other classes do then what I do.
# Aug 09 2001 at 7:40 PM Rating: Default
gah I'd much rather group then solo, soloing gets really boring after you do it for 20 levels or more. I group in DL all the time, its fun ) Getting a little boring after 4 levels in the same place but there's always more places to hunt. On the note about bards, if they know how to play they will make the group much more useful. I grouped with a lvl 31 bard in HHK a few times and the exp was great! He could always charm one of the adds and send it to attack the one the tank and me were killing, he could also mez any others if they were on the caster while the tank taunted off, great guy, exp was wonderful that night. Me(29 rogue at the time) a 33 warrior(twinked out) a 29 druid and that 31 bard soloed the entire zone with no downtime, there were minutes when no goblins were up in any of the 4 rooms. I got over a level and half that night. Bards are great in groups ) and to the person who said rogue's were lucky to survive a fight with a mob 3 levels lower, I agree totally. Rogue's arn't meant to solo and thats one of the reasons I chose them as my secondary character. it is possible for a rogue to solo a room with 2 or 3 mobs in it, if the spawn is broken, and they have a fungi tunic + haste + tight weapons. Its just my gripe that I can't get any better stuff with my druid. Only thing that resembles usefulness is ES arms (not gloves, those pos things), a mana free dot. Might save my life if I'm oom and the mob is snared. The rest of the ES stuff is crap and really rare drop, never seen any ES stuff for sale cept gaunts and occasionaly the arms. The helm might be useful in the sense of saving a slot for another spell gem. I enjoy getting new stuff for my character, druid included, thats why I think there should be another useful stat to druids then wisdom or at lesat some more stuff that has useful procs.

To see this first posted here now, as we had one rot last night- no paladins at the raid needed. That happens to a lot of the paladin/sk equip unfortunately since there aren't that many of them playing.

BTW- drops off sevelak, one of his more common drops

You gotta be freakin nuts Maeli. I'd use this shield. And as for clerics, holy cow, if your a cleric complaining that you don't get decent items then your whack. Hell unlike a lot of clerics gear most pally only stuff is no drop and not the easiest to get to. For example you could sit on the first floor of Hate and equip your entire guilds cleric population with armor in no time. Very seldom have I been to the second floor for the pally gear unless Inny was up. This is just a small example and not comparing Hate drops to this shield at all. And yes I still use a 1hb item Hoarfrost Hammer and shield especially since I seem to be tanking a lot lately in the first Tier planes and need all the aggro I can muster.

Hey there Stimie...

Whats wrong with useing this as a paladin? The way I see it, it is much more suited to a paladin who can use it better. Paladins can actually bash something with it, take advantage of the 20 str (prime req) and the 20 wis (Look at that, ANOTHER prime req!). And it is relatively lightweight, WAIT! SHOULDN'T MONKS GET THIS?!?!

I think we can all agree that this one a VERY nice piece of equipment. But lets not cry about who can and can not use it, ehh?
RE: Great, another item for the paladins.

an AC 55 shield with this stats is of limited use for a pallie ? think about it =P

In ToV northwing drops more than enough class specific stuff from the roamers, and no class should complain, for your whiny cleric this drops random from the named roamers :
Shield of Dragonkind
+40 AC
+15 Wis +7 vsMg +7 vsFire +7 vsCold +7 vsPos +7 vsDis +75 HP +75 Mana
cleric only

the shield of the dawn is a drop from a named northwing dragon, it drops the same shield for SKs too.

OMFG! I thought we went over this Verant! *taps his springwood club against his hand threateningly* we have ENOUGH uber items for melee classes! Give us something with a proc damnit, casters need to have fun too! *glares*

Verant- bu, but.... the paladins sa-said they needed better shields *looks up at Traverse pleadingly*

Since when do you care about Paladins? Huh?? YOU NEED SOME SENSE BEAT INTO YOU

Verant- No, no please...not again!

My springwood club won't do, no, this requires special treatment!

Verant- *whimpers*

*Whips out his special, sense-beating-make-druids-more-useful-and-stop-making-uber-melee-items club*
*Beats Verant sensless*

Verant- bu...but, we gave you that cool shield with 14wis and the effect of ensnare!

Yes but you also made ES guants, I mean wtf were you smoking? HUH? SPEAK UP DARNIT! *smacks verant repeatdly*

Verant- I'm soooo sorry to you and all the other druids, we'll make you more useful in groups and give you better equipment drops instead of more to melees, Promise! *cries*

Thats better, and if you don't.... *glare*

Heh, sorry, little bored atm ) Hope you all enojyed my Verant-Beating skit. You know you all have wanted to do it

Traverse Moonstalker, 46, totally useless (needing better caster drop equipment) druid
Blackitty Pantheramoon, 30, bisexual and fun to twink rogue
Pyrocat Moonstalker, 25, retired and easy to beat senless ranger

PS, no offense to any melees, personally I love the selection of equipment you have and love to twink my rogue with most of it (cackles) but druids don't get enough chit to play with, all casters in fact, the only thing that makes us more useful is 200wis/int, which post 40 is easy to get with a little time, and groups don't care how much mana you have as max. Melee's can get fungi tunics, lammys, Trak teeth .etc and that makes them more useful 10X, druids (and all casters) need something like that, item wise. It also helps if you know how to play your class, but you can never tell if someone does until you group with them. Just my rants, and all IMO so please don't take offense or flame me

You have it all wrong! Druids are very useful. They are the Mass Transit for Norrath. You charge fares to get us to our destinations in comfort, and sometimes, style. SOW, Scale of Wolf, Speed of Cheetah for those 'Express' situations. The various Druid rings are simply Terminals. Wizards are more like taxis or I would include them in this...

Seriously, Druids are the single most played character at 13.?% (followed by Warrior 10.?%) by VI's own statistics. The lack of gear is more from most Druids' own pickiness than from a true lack of gear. On this site alone, go to the search engine and do a search for all druid gear, then go and do a search for all Rogue gear (4.?% total played), do a quick count. You folks overlook adequate gear in the quest for the best gear.
The Druid class is tough enough without gear. You blithely talk about Quad-Kiting while my Rogue is lucky enough to escape from a fight with a mob 3 levels lower and my SK can chew through 1 yellow mob at a time, but not if it goes and gets help.
Play your class, get the exp, don't sweat the gear. If you can't beat the mob without the gear, you can't beat the mob.

Did I just say the clothes don't make the class? How trite. My apologies...

What are you talking about man. As a high level Paladin with a Tantor's Tusk, and all of my spells I am able to melee almost as good as a Warrior and do heals if the Cleric runs out of mana. Yes there truly is a problem with Paladins being able to solo, but once you hit 60 soloing doesnt matter anymore =P. I also can now do an almost full exp rez which helps a lot to the group. We just have to face the facts for now we were designed as a group class. And as long as we dont get the useful DD's, Roots, Snares, stuns, and fears we will always be meant for a group class.

Missed my point, was sarcasm aimed at the druid fussing about not being good in groups ( which makes no sense to me ). I agree that we are fantastic grouped and can solo, just really slow going and have a hell of a time if we get an add.

Sorry, guy, but I don't understand your gripe. When I'm putting together a group, I prefer the following: myself (ranger), Pally/SK/War, Bard, Chanter, Cleric, and DRUID, yes that's right, DRUID. As a matter of fact, the ONE person that I group with every night happens to be a druid, and I would not join a group unless she was included.
You may need better equipment, honestly I don't know- don't study too much on that stuff, but I don't think that Verant would intentionally turn thier back on the single largest populated class in the game. But as far as your claim to not being useful in groups, I personally think that a druid is invaluable to a group.

A little off the subject, but being a bard myself, I am pleased to see there are a few people who support the use of bards in a party. Why more people dont want us is beyond my understanding.
RE: OMFG (a skit by Trav)
# Aug 08 2001 at 3:24 PM Rating: Default
Are you kidding me? I think Bards are the BEST class in the game to group with. Who needs Enchanters when you have mana song? Who needs druids wehn you have speed song? Who needs clerics when...well I guess you still need clerics. I wish I would have started as a bard. 8 out of 10 LFG i have heard were NOT BARDS! Why? Cause they were always in a group!

Anyway, I like bards. :-)

1. If it was a sucky effect you would not use it, so I don't see your point in it having a sucky effect

2. This shield is DAMN nice without any effects. It would rock even with just the AC, which is like having a uber BP in your sec hand slot!

3. I still don't see why you want an effect.
