This item is clearly most suitable for an SK imo and should be SK useable, SK are godly. This is a waste on robe casters IMO give it to a real class like shadow knight.
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 31 2003 at 12:38 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) No offense Vulak but f**k you. Almost the hardest encounter would drop a caster earring without at least FT 5. That's sad...

Please help where do i locate the info for the solstice earring?? Maybe just me but cant find on this site, any info appreciated Thanx

This item is pretty badass, as far as most earrings go, but from vulak, i'd kinda expect a little bit more.
mabey some small FT, or some other stats. 4saves 90hp/mana some int, and 25ac (ac is very nice for int caster earrings, mind you).. but considering how tough this guy is and how easy other really good earrings are (see : earring of the solstice), something like FT 1 or 2 would be very nice, or mabey some stam on it (everyone can use hp).
not that I'd turn this earring down, if offered.. but it's just .. hrm.
not something i'd expect off vulak.

mabey FT 7 and instant click, unlimited charges of DA?


last part was a joke for any that didn't get it.

#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 17 2001 at 1:37 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) It's wt 0, obviously it's a monk item, why does verant keep putting Int (and even worse, Wis) on Monk items?
RE: Why the int?

silly newbies think that cause something has 0 weight it is automatically defaulted to the monk. NEWS FLASH!! every other class in EQ has a weight limit too! its not like my warrior can go carrying around a backpack full of crude iron ore at 15 stones per brick. so before you go making stupid comments, even if you are just joking or being sarcastic or whatever, the whole "Monk Item" joke is getting REALLY overdone.

I believe it's sarcasm...


aka. joking, dont take it seriously

This is such a blatant attempt at trolling... why do people keep doing this sort of thing? what does it really add to the discussion about this item? It's a great INT caster earring, and that's all that's to be said about it.

Clearly, posts like this are not meant to give the wealth of information that we're all accustomed to on these boards. But honestly, we already know where this drops. We know you need to be able to kill Vulak to obtain this item, and we know that there is probably no caster in-game that would turn this item down if it were offered. So, what more is there to discuss? You see the stats, you see that it drops off Vulak. Everything that anyone posts beyond that is either in jest, or to air out their opinion. And theres nothing really wrong with that.
See the size of this thread? How many useful posts could there honestly be? If this were a mid-level item in a new zone it would make sense to have a huge thread that discussed the origin of the item, the approximate level of the associated mob, what kind of crew you'd need to bring the mob down, the precise location, etc.
But because it is customary to only post useful info...
For those of you who don't know - to obtain this item you need an entire guild of approximately level 60 to wipe out every mob in the Temple of Veeshan. Then you have to kill the boss mob of the zone, Vulak'Aerr. He will definitely drop something cool, but you may have to kill him a few times to get this particular goody.
As I said, you need to reach level 60. This will require at least several months of very dedicated EQ play, or you can buy a level 60 character on ebay for about $500-$1000. If you don't have $1000, just go over to your mommy's purse or daddy's wallet when they aren't looking, and look for a plastic card with a bunch of numbers on it. The ebay website refers to this card as a 'credit card', and you can use the numbers on it to get free stuff - including, but not limited to a level 60 warrior or mage or whatever else you may want! And if you need to get your new level 60 into an uber guild, I'm sure they'd gladly let you join if you share those 'credit card' numbers with them. Hope this helps! Happy hunting!

It adds absolutely nothing to the discussion, ... as you said yourself, it's an obvious post by a troll. Now, where *DID* I put that can of Troll-B-Gone?.....

btw, nice earring!!! It just flat out rocks! AC, HPs, Mana, Int, saves, ... what is there NOT to like?
RE: Why the int?
# Oct 18 2001 at 4:19 AM Rating: Default
Uummm... It is weight 0 possibly because int caster have VERY LOW STRENGTH. Just my thinking anyway.

it is glaringly obvious that the guy was being sarcastic... thx drive thru~
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 17 2001 at 12:49 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) If you're serious, you don't deserve to have to play EQ, or have a computer. NO WEIGHT DOES NOT MEAN IT SHOULD BE FOR A MONK, YOU STUPID, STUPID NEWBIE IDIOT.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 17 2001 at 9:10 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Good question. And something else to consider, which is probably even more relavent:
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 17 2001 at 10:21 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) For all those folk desperately trying to reduce this thread's rating to nonexistent, I believe this thread is meant to be sarcastic for all those who can't figure it out. (doh!)
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 17 2001 at 4:48 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Will someone PLEASE smack this moron?
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 16 2001 at 11:29 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Just thought of a pretty good idea for these int caster earings and rings out of this place. Have some sort of negative weight on them. What do you think?
Probably real
# Oct 16 2001 at 7:12 PM Rating: Default
There are one or two rings with 30 AC, I don't see why everyone's shouting "fake" over this. Vulak has insane drops (even for his level of difficulty). MONK EARRING, la~ (that was a joke, don't have a frickin' cow)
#Anhari, Posted: Oct 16 2001 at 8:06 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) mooo
doesnt make it real
# Oct 16 2001 at 6:31 PM Rating: Default
this probably is real.. im sure it is.. im just saying just because it has a guild tag on it doesnt mean a member of the guild posted it..remember q's scepter like 2 weeks ago?
Tis Real
# Oct 16 2001 at 5:19 PM Rating: Default
This item is real. A member of VM would not post false info and attach the guild tag to it. Nice work Vis.

Epicure 55 magi
Really sweet
# Oct 16 2001 at 4:03 PM Rating: Default
It IS "so sweet its almost fake" but the only reason that's true is that 99% of us will never see any of the things that come from this zone.

*sigh* two 55+ characters and I'll still probably never see the insides of this place.
# Oct 16 2001 at 3:58 PM Rating: Default
i fully agree in every way
# Oct 16 2001 at 3:06 PM Rating: Default
Is this item for real? it seems so sweet its almost fake, but then again most things off of Vulak'Aerr seem that way...

ROFL! Hoary Mattekar Robe is a VERY real and VERY popular (now no longer drops) mage item on Asheron's Call. I seriously doubt that there's one in EQ though. Cute.
