Sony needs to wake-up
# Nov 02 2005 at 3:50 PM Rating: Decent
i've been playing EQ for about a year & 1/2. Currently the population is dwindling, seems Sony has blinders on without having the 'Force'. Not being a power gamer but a casual player, as old as this item is, i would still beam a smile if my Monk had it. Perhaps Sony could revitalize ToVeeshan &/or retune the loots. Something to entice players to return there. The AC is still more than decent upon this for today. Make the Xave's have 175 HPs now, add 150 END to it, maybe a regeneration amount, & a Faerune effect possibly. As Sony's EQ growing majority of power gamers & true veterans remain the core population, the casual &/or true new players will be weeded out since Sony seems to not care nor cater to their concerns. Sony needs to open the game up, allow progression, allow fun, achieving goals & give a reason to want to play EQ as a game & not as work. But as is i still want the Xave's hehe too bad i wont ever see let alone acquire.

Brother Xave was Lead GM for Mithaniel Marr ... He had one of the better senses of Humor ... i was online when he had to leave the game ... he turned 23 same day ... I seem to remember all zones getting messages like " a portal opens in the heavens to accept a Monk Hero" ... brother xave had to leave the game..... this was years ago when the game had just gotten Kunark.

This is SOOOOO a monk item

naa, i would say let it go to the clerics or druids, i mean, look at the weight, Yuck!
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 18 2002 at 4:44 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) it also says, monk only~

i have a question to VI why the sadd do they make items that are almost impossible to get? a guild will most likely go on a raid once in a eq lifetime for the items that drop off this boss mob
#REDACTED, Posted: Jan 25 2002 at 11:15 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Umm, because if they did not, all the level 60s would have nothing to do, and quit. Oh, and the uber guild or guilds on a server clear all of tov every week or two.
RE: wtf
# Jul 08 2002 at 4:52 PM Rating: Default
I have a question to VI too. Why not 100hps on it? Hmm one of the hardest encounters in the game, drops a 75 hps item (well it used to be one of them, now it a) does not exist :P) and b) is outstripped by luclin encounters)
RE: wtf
# Sep 14 2004 at 8:03 PM Rating: Default
not a bad point to be honest.... I am doing a VP quest right now for a mask with 140hp on it... that I can do most of with guilds druid-bot and 1 friend... It does require some faction but it is way easy to do compared with getting this!

Seems to me this mobs drops could get a facelift.

#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 15 2001 at 9:22 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) OBVIOUSLY necro loot, if this went to any monk then ur guild is just stupid, i won the roll on this on my 36 druid and then destroyed it because i had better already no harm no foul.

You may be trying to sound funny here, but I'll take the bait. Your 36 druid can't even enter the zone this drops in.

#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 28 2002 at 11:22 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Trying to sound funny? Bleh, whining that a monk only item is "dr00d lewt" isnt even funny. Debating what class for something that was say +20 wis/int +100 mana 60% perm haste, I could see happening though... *drools over the imaginary item*
RE: dr00d lewt
# Mar 01 2002 at 4:54 PM Rating: Default
It's funny if you look at the myriad of items that are not monk useable and due to the fact it has no or low weight, there's several posts from monks screaming about not being able to use it. To quote a really bad game, 'Suck it down!'

The haste on this is 42%.

I've tested it repeatedly.

Also, the guy who posted about it being 34% is not me, although he makes it sound like it is.

#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 02 2001 at 10:24 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Read up folks cause if you notice this "moron" on his bored offtime goes around allakhazam posting his 2copper on phat lewt he'll never own. Just give him a bad rating, tell him he sucks, and he'll go away. :)
job well done

I had the pleasure of knowing Xave in his GM duties and I think it is a great thing that they put this great item into the game with his name on it. He was the best GM that I have run into in my many travels. Not saying that other GMs arent good just that Xave was better.

and just for the record this is probably a monk item because Xave's avatar was a monk.

Be nice to he Guides you never know when you might need one

im a monk and i dont think every "Uber" low wieghted item should go to a monk. I think that those that automatically assume that the only people that say that are monks need to shut up. Dont be so stereotypical, stereotypes assume and well all know how to spell assume.
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 27 2001 at 11:17 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Definately a monk item.

This is a PALADIN item!
# Sep 26 2001 at 10:22 AM Rating: Default
Look! It has AC, HP and Str. That makes it a Paladin item you stupid monks. Anyone that would award this item to a monk is not right in da head.
RE: This is a PALADIN item!
# Jun 15 2003 at 10:27 AM Rating: Decent
wait you forgot to put add 20 weight and it would be a pally item non of the monks would want it!?!

Rogue Item Fewl!
# Sep 26 2001 at 3:12 PM Rating: Default
He was making fun of the fact that every time some new uber item comes out that has low weight, monks here complain or insist it is a monk item.

And besides he's wrong, it's a Rogue item hands down. It's not plate for Paladins, and has AC STR and DEX, it just reads rogue.
RE: Rogue Item Fewl!
# Sep 27 2001 at 4:14 PM Rating: Decent
Like hell it is! This thing has Wizzy written all over it! Wizards need haste so we can whup serious **** with our sac daggers or staves of the wheel, not to mention that dex coming in handy for when we use our famous feign death ability. (You know, the one that mystically puts you at your bind point without all that burdensome gear slowing you down?) Step back, warriors, wizzys are the new tanks in town!
RE: Rogue Item Fewl!

#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 26 2001 at 12:59 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Bahh. I just saw the item, but the messages didnt come up. I was about to post, This is a RANGER item! Look at it, 0.0 weight, and all of those stats, monks shouldn't get lol. I'm happy to see I am smarter than those that believe you.
#Drakang, Posted: Sep 26 2001 at 6:59 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This should be a warrior item. All the stats are right.
RE: Has to be said
# May 06 2002 at 10:45 AM Rating: Default
It's all well and nice that people that this is a class item just most people think it is getting old on the class debate the stats on this thing read for all melee types sry it just happen's to be a monk useble only item, oh well gratz to the monks for this uber peice of equipment.

To all other's not monk's oh well u get uber items to so stop spamming the monk only ones!!!

He was an awesome GM, he was a very nice guy and a good GM, back when VI had actual customer service... he was a good guy and a good gm.. but i dont think VI cared for him very much, so they pushed him out, and has since gave us set of incompetant assbrains to try to fill his shoes...

lets just say they sucked, up until Vedan, and now Vedan is gone, i have yet to have to deal with the new head GM so i cant rate him...

RE: Brother Xave
# Sep 27 2001 at 6:51 AM Rating: Default
Xave got promoted, he wasn't pushed out....think about this one....ever wonder what a GM or Guide thinks of players when they petition for some of the most idiotic things? Yeah, guess that never crossed your mind. Join the hug a Guide movement, I bet it will do wonders for them and you.

#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 25 2001 at 9:33 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) all you silly monks can just shush about "Oh! That is a monk item!" Verant finally gave up and gave y'all an awesome helm like this. Now be quiet about the rest of the stuff that other classes can use : )

#Anonymous, Posted: Sep 25 2001 at 7:39 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I see you guys like my headband. BTW I forgot to post right away. I parsed the haste at 34%
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 08 2001 at 10:32 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) its not you didnt parse it...dont try to show off
Not too shabby
# Sep 25 2001 at 7:08 PM Rating: Default
This is a pretty nice headband for sure! anyone know the haste% on it?

# Jun 17 2002 at 10:54 PM Rating: Decent
if you like the AC on this, after you get it, join the dragon faction and get the flayed barbarian leggins off of the avatar of war =p.... the best legs in the game (pre-luclin, maybe even still) and of course they're limited to the best class in the game
# Sep 15 2002 at 5:24 PM Rating: Decent
Yes, flayed barbarian skin leggings are the best droppable legs, but i would prefer the no drop leggings of the fiery star hehe

I know him!
# Sep 25 2001 at 4:18 PM Rating: Default
Brother Xave used to be the head GM on Mithanniel Marr. I guess after he quit he gave his headband to a dragon, waiting for some other lucky monk to come along and pick it up :)
RE: I know him!

Bah Vulak propably ATE the poor GM. That's how this headband got there.
