see invisible

See invisible is very usefull for rogues who want to see them selves in 3rd person view while hidden. Aggro range is reduced while sneaking and sometime you need to see where you are while trying to get to a hard to reach place while hidden and sneaking, so as to make sure you are out of aggro range of a see invis mob. and being able to see yourself is a great asset in this.

People flaming Bentos for having no life are truly pathetic. Coming to an EQ spoiler site flaming people is too low. Have you even bothered to read what is required for accomplishing this quest??? You need a complete frigging raid force to do the final battle!!! The effect on the ring (the main reason for doing this battle) is 6000hp regen over 600 seconds adding 10 atk ! It´s ******* insane!
Now go play in the traffic, there´s a nice moron.

I honestly don't see how people can complain about the "uber" items in this game.

1) It's called EverQuest. This is because it is not a game with definitive and established goals; it has no concrete ending. There are those who joined the Quest in its beta days. These are the folks who, for the most part, are members of these uber guilds. There are those who have just answered the call of the Quest, and are just recieving their first PGT (remember that?).

2) To be in an uber guild, you have to be GOOD at the game. GOOD is something very difficult to attain. It involves concrete planning, organization and teamwork. Anyone who has ever led a raid (most notably pick-up raids), knows that this can be damned near impossible. If you are invited into an uber guild, you can consider it an honor. They are one of the best groups on your server.

3) Bentos of Triton (Povar) was the first to complete the 10th ring quest. At the time, it was an ACCOMPLISHMENT (capitalized to emphasize.) In the Quest, he is considered a legendary figure. He was the first.

I know it's kinda rambling on now... but unlike other games (it's kind of unique to the MMOG universe), there are heros. There are those who do what has not been done before. Is it wrong to bestow honors upon these people? 300,000 people play EverQuest. To have a first among that is quite impressive, and in my ever so humble opinion, deserves the recognition that a title on an item gives.

So, don't whine when people become recognized as heroes. It makes you look petty and jealous. If you want the honors, put in the work. Learn to work as a team with people. They are called uber guilds for a reason; because they are damned good at what they do.

Wow, i had this itme for about 10 levels and never new it was named after a player. Was he really the first to complete the 10th ring war? How cool is that that 989/verant/soe named something after a player?!?!

I agree with you Claud. If Bentos wasn't the one to do it first, someone else would've done it. So like you said, some people do become recognized as heroes because they have the determination to go for it. If he didn't do it first, then someone else would've done it and would be getting flamed in place of Bentos. People just can't be glad and congratulate people when they do something that no one else had done which is pretty sad. People that flame other people should try to do something before everyone else and see if they get accused of having no life.

Zerging* only works on the easy raids....I'd like to see someone zerg Emperor Ssraezsha, Manaetic Behemoth in Innovation, or Rallos Zek's true form: an_expendable_goon_17 says, "Hey boss why'd we wipe this time?", a_raid_leader says "I dunno, I figured we could just throw endless numbers at him....who knew the god of war in the plane of tactics would require a strategy to overpower...?"

*For those of you who have never played Starcraft, the Zerg were a race in a popular real time strategy game, their advantage opposed to the other races was cranking out cheap units quickly to overwhelm other players with sheer numbers*

Bentos is a member of Triton of Povar, and the first to finish the tenth coldain ring quest. Hence, this item.
