Does NOT stack with 8th ring
# Jan 11 2007 at 12:40 PM Rating: Decent
Got the 10th ring a few weeks back, and did the quest again up to ring 8. The effects do NOT stack.

Although, the 8th ring is still useful, as the 10th ring doesn't stack with high level druid or shaman regen, and the 8th ring does.

What you do is click this, then use shield of the 8th. They should still stack. Giving 17-18 ds. Very nice ds.

best twink ring in the game probally. If u have a high level main with a good amount of money or a group of level 70 friends that are willing to help u, get this ring. It is pretty much a pl in a bottle. Also it has great stats, even for high players.

It's kinda double edged though. If you have the resources (time and high level friends) to do this, then you could spend it all just on directly PLing your alt from scratch. I'm sure he'd be well into his 60s by the time you get him this ring!

Firstly, It's a Clickie = A Must
Scondly, Does'nt matter what else you use, put it on, click it, take it off = free buff with whats described above.

How can you go wrong with this ring ?

It Does take up a buff slot, But, IMO, a buffslot for +10regen DS and ATK = not to shabbie

I think the question isn't if it's useful to have, but if it's worth the huge amount of time to acquire. I'm a ranger and so have my ranges of regen, DS, and ATK spells. I'd be a little frustrated to spend all that time to get this ring, only to discover it doesn't stack with one of my regular buffs!
RE: Worth it for 65 beast?
# Nov 01 2004 at 8:07 AM Rating: Decent
As long as you use Protection of the Wild and not the SOT, SOP, etc it will stack. 50ds is fun.
RE: Worth it for 65 beast?
# Feb 07 2005 at 12:31 PM Rating: Decent
Not only that but it also stacks with the 8th and 9th rings, sooooo.... if you really wanted too you could do the quest twice and get 18 ds for anyone without ds(sk's get 30 ds with both rings and their own ds) to 58 for ranja.
# Jul 04 2004 at 2:20 AM Rating: Decent
Does this stack with Bramblecoat 17 ac and 3 dmg shield and 9th/10th ring would be a good stack
faction dropping after getting ring
# Jun 25 2004 at 3:14 AM Rating: Default
I am currently working on the 9th ring and I was wondering if you can lose dain faction after getting the 10th ring without losing the ring, or will the ring poof if your faction gets too low?


P.S. - Does anyone know a good site with lots of info on the 10th ring war so I know what Im getting into when I decide to do it.

#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 23 2004 at 9:15 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I realize it is unlikely to get this ring this early...but hypothetically speaking. I have a 65 enchanter and I PL'd my 36 monk through the first 8 parts of this quest. I have yet to begin the harder parts (part 9 and finally 10). BUT im wandering does anyone know if there is a minimum level at which the NPCs will respond to you? could I hupothetically get this quest done a 36 given I get the high level people to help me? or at lvl40 or at 50 even.
Damage Shield
# Dec 16 2003 at 4:02 AM Rating: Decent
I have had my ring for quite a while now, and as a level 65 ranger, the one thing that I love the most about this is the fact that it stacks with Protection of the Wild and Bladecoat, enabling me to actually give myself a 50 point damage shield, increased atk and an extra 10hp/tic regeneration. Overall, this ring is a great asset to any class, period.
RE: Damage Shield
# Aug 22 2004 at 10:37 PM Rating: Decent
It'll stack because there's 3 different damage shields rangers can use... all stackable individually. The self "Coat" kind, the targeted "shield" or "Call" kind and the self massive buffs that have multiple effects in them. The massives block shield and Call DS's, but not coats, the ring counts as one of these massives.... blocks shield and call, stacks with coats
RE: Damage Shield
# Apr 02 2004 at 1:10 PM Rating: Default
Interesting, since it doesn't stack with Call of the Rathe... but does stack with Protection of the Wild...

Thankies for the tidbit, good to know =)

If you click link for effect: frostweaver's blessing it will take you to spell effect description. Allows you to research things like this in future :)

To Answer the question though it is an -instant- similar to j-boots.

effect stacking
# Apr 24 2003 at 3:17 PM Rating: Decent
the monk epic effect does not stack with several other effects that increase ATK (e.g. grim aura, strength of nature). i only have 8th ring, which stacks with epic just fine, but i'm wondering if there are any monks out there with epic and 10th ring that can verify that both effects stack? the +10 ATK from Frostreaver's Blessing gives me the suspicion that perhaps they do not stack.

According to Lucy, Frostreaver's Blessing DOES indeed stack with Celestial Tranquility (that's the Monk Epic Effect, yes?). Here's the link:

Hope that helps!
RE: effect stacking
# Aug 08 2003 at 5:20 AM Rating: Decent
Yes, Celestial Tranquility has the ATK bonus in slot 1 and Frostweaver's Blessing has the ATK bonus in slot 5. Therefore, they stack.

Unfortunately, because the regen effect is in the same slot as the Druid/Shaman regen spells, this is over-written by them...

People, don't aggro the spearmen that line up on the west and east sides of the river on your ringwars. They will begin to summon your people and mow them down one by one. If you leave them alone they don't seem to summon anybody. If some bonehead on your ringwar starts attacking a spearman, what's going to happen is he will get summoned and attacked, your Cleric will heal that bonehead tank and then get summoned and atteacked themselves, then the whole damn line of spearmen will have to be taken out by your raidforce in-between waves (which really sucks).
RE: Spearmen
# Oct 15 2003 at 8:12 AM Rating: Decent
It's best if a group can be assigned to clear the 2 lines of spearmen (starting at 1 end and working along) between the attacks, this makes it much easier to deal with the attacking squads of giants.
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 23 2003 at 5:17 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) part of the fun is to take out the spearmen, otherwise the whole thing becomes zerg
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 24 2003 at 10:10 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) It sells off a rare spawning vendor in Greater Faydark for 99 silver. She only spawns Tuesdays between 4am and 5am eastern, then despawns 30 minutes later. Half the time you buy the ring from her and she gives you something else, then attacks you (quads for 900). Oh, also you have to be max all to both CoV and Kael.

this may be a silly question, but for click items with the "Must Equip" tag, does that mean if you put it on, click it, then take it off, the effect will fade?

# Dec 23 2002 at 10:05 PM Rating: Excellent
You can put a couple bards on Song of Highsun duty if you are short a group or two. Song of Highsun gates mobs back to their spawn points. So you just have the bards keep gating the giants back to their spawn points until you are ready for them.
RE: Bards!!
# Feb 01 2004 at 9:00 PM Rating: Decent
we did that for my ring whenever a mob got to close to the city, we would just highsun them and go fight the things on there way there. If something got past the lines of defense though we had 6-8 bards up there just highsunning the MFers back to spawn point

The ring adds to sta and str, the shawl adds to sta wis int and cha, anyone noticing a lack of items that buff up dex and agi? could there be a 3rd chain coldain quest that just hasnt been found yet? like maybe out or the rogue guild or the perhaps the beastlord guy(i know beastlords primarys arent agi and dex but im trying to think of someone who would have been added more recently then velious since there werent BLs before luclin)

Edited, Tue Dec 17 15:16:56 2002
RE: Just a thought
# Jan 16 2003 at 2:46 PM Rating: Decent
dex and agi are relatively unimportant stats.
RoA - rate of advancement (how often you get a skill-up)

what they affect:

str: max melee dmg, carry weight (common stat on many items, not too important). smithing RoA if higher than your wis or int.

sta: hit points. you can never have too many. also affects your yellow stamina bar and breath meter. get sta to 100+ to suffer no ill effects (except being unable to jump) from an empty yellow bar.

agi: marginal impact on AC. defensive skill(dodge, parry) RoA. possibly increases "proc" rate of avoidance skills (ex. higher agi may make you parry more often). it's important to note that you suffer a severe AC penalty for having an agi below 75, whether by encumbrance or sucky starting stats. so when starting a caster, i suggest a minimum of 80 agi(for some leeway with encumbrance) before you start loading up on wis or int.

dex: proc rate, archery damage, offensive skill (kick, 1hs) RoA. thus, most useful for rangers using bows, people training weap skills, and folks with really good weapon procs. possibly affects fletching RoA if higher than your wis/int.

wis/int: mana pool, fizzle rate, magic skill (channeling, abjuration) RoA, general ability (sense heading, forage) RoA, language skill RoA, all tradeskill RoA

cha: npc vendor prices, outcome of select spells

so, on the one hand you have melees focusing on str, sta, hp, and regen(coldain rings), and on the other you have casters and priests worrying about int/wis, hp, and flowing thought(coldain shawls). hybrids long for both, and nobody really cares about dex or agi =P.

which, unfortunately, is why they're so hard to raise for the people who seek them.
RE: Just a thought
# Mar 31 2003 at 1:00 PM Rating: Decent
Actually if you ask any ranger over the lvl of 45 what stat they are trying to improve the most you will almost always hear Dex. Dex directly affects the acuracy and damage we do with bows, thus on raiding situations high dex means you will have a much higher DPS....Dex is an important stat to have at higher levels. Get a primal weapon and your gunna go crazy waiting for that first proc because of ****** Dex!
RE: Just a thought
# Aug 01 2003 at 7:45 AM Rating: Decent
I agree with the other reply re: who the coldain are, but just to add to the ranga position that dex is a useful/important stat an SK with Soul Abbrasion 3 definitely is interested in raising dex because the procs from some of our spells can be really nasty with SA3.

Coldain don't make bloody Ranjas though... Just remembering this is still an RPG and you should consider who the Coldain (and thus who this stuff was intended for, at least from the coldains perspective if not SoE's). Even still the coldain should be magiking up some Dex items for their warriors (criticals) and Palys (undead proc).

I suppose us wee short ones can use all them fellers with da bows backing us up and don't mind turning over some armor on our forges to make em even stronger as long as they are good and decent. Have to keep one eye on them human ones most of the time though me thinks. As to making the really special stuff I think the good Coldain would be wise to hoard it in prepartion for the next war that always comes up between the stout and lanky.

Ok....first I have a question....does this stack with the fungi?? If it does and you invest a bit of AAXP points in to the regen categories, you are looking at over 30HP per tick of regen. Also if you have good bind wound skill, you can do that at the same time to cut away at the downtime between fights. That is just my math. Also, to anyone whos participated in the Tenth Ring fun is it.....and how likely are other guilds to help out??? Thanks!!
# Sep 13 2002 at 10:00 AM Rating: Decent
as far as help goes, you can be sure to get quite a few people to come and leech faction off all the giants and what not. Plus, the ring war is one of the most enjoyable fights you'll take part in.

When we did it, we took about 35 - 40 of our guild there, set up in front of thurgadin, and before the first wave hit as we spammed the zone that we were starting the war... we got close to 15 more people who just wanted to take part in it. Don't worry about getting help for this, it will come as everyone knows how cool it is to take part in :)

As a 57 iksar monk with fungi and NO regen AA I already have over 30hp/tick...31 to be exact. Yes, it does stack with fungi.
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 10 2002 at 3:23 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Anyone still wearing a fungi at the point in the game required to get this is out of their mind. Unless of course you have 25 people who love you and have no lives other than to help you get this ring for your lower level alt, then kudos to you!
# Jan 16 2003 at 3:26 PM Rating: Default
actually, fungi is one of the best, if not -the- best, tradable armors in the game. period. it mitigates a full 2.5 dmg per second, regardless of mob power(that's 150hp every minute that you never had to feel). there are many lvl 60s that swear by their fungis. if anything, warriors would ditch them first (for very -very- high ac bps), but those not normally tanking (rogues, rangers, monks, shamans - and how) would benefit more from a fungi than an 100ac bp. go do some figures. go pose some questions to the math gurus at The Steel Warrior. the fungi is a FANTASTIC breastplate at all but the very latest stages of the game.

thank god we have know-nothings like yourself, though. otherwise the fungi would be priced a lot higher than 50k.

so are these people out of their minds? hardly. but i might hazard a guess that you have yet to understand the mathematical fundamentals of eq gameplay.

Hehe, but then you have to factor in the fact that you are an Iksar and have some bonus natural must regen like a fiend if you had the AAs.....37 HP a tick.
