Which mob drops this?

Which mob drops this? Does this still drop after the Sleeper is awake, or did this drop from one of the warders?

No mob drops this. This is one of the results of a quest. You take your key to ST and a prismatic dragon scale that drops there after Kerafyrm is awoken and turn them in to a dragon in WW. Msomething. You cycle through the rewards until you get the item you want. Just like the scout quest in WW.

Watch out, though. That dragon is in Disciples of Kerafyrm faction. You start out indifferent but go KoS if you kill him. There is no known way in the game right now to fix that faction.
Wow, the only level 3...

Wow, the only level 3 focus item that's not from Temple of Veeshan, so far as I've seen. Except for the Drachnid Thyxl, which was a rot-in-the-bank item from a mid-level zone. Go figure.

Harla Dar in West Wastes drops a 6 to all stats +50 mana/hp talisman with Improved Damage 3.

Obulus Death Shroud drops in Sebilis, with Mana Preservation 3.

Fetid Flesh Belt drops somewhere, has Reanimation Haste 3 I believe... I forget, I use it for the mana :P

Tons of IIIs out there.

The Frostreaver Cloak is also a very nice cloak with Spell Haste III.

Amulet of Insight (drops from scholar type on top floor of Icewell) has this effect as well. Yes, the 3rd stage, not just first or second.

Amulet of Insight has extended enhancement III. Click HERE if you don't believe me.

Many III items drop elsewhere. Some off of Western Waste Dragons as well (improved damage III). Keep an eye out, there are ones that are easier to obtain out there.
Newest Effect (6/7)
# Jun 07 2002 at 10:02 AM Rating: Default
The newest effect on this item is "Spell Haste 3". Which gives a +15% cast time reduction on all spells (excluding CH, DA, and spells under 3 secs)

Spell haste II is on my Djarn's amethyst ring and it decreases the cast time on root (originaly 2.0 seconds) so spell haste can effect spells that are 2 seconds, at least.
RE: Newest Effect (6/7)
# Jan 14 2003 at 3:29 PM Rating: Default
Spell haste I affects spells with 1 second cast time or higher, spell haste II is 2 seconds or higher, and spell haste III is 3 seconds or higher. Don't know about IV, but I believe it's 3 seconds as well.

Yeah, the melalafin thing was exploited on Veeshan server by one guild for 5 days straight before the GMs realized what was happening. A totally gimp guild is now running around with items meant for guilds that kill the high end golems in sleepers tomb. None of them have ever even been to sleepers. Guild's name is Pravus Dei. Everyone already hates them so stand in line.

Identifies as Lens containing Lendinaria's essence
Not the best
# Nov 28 2001 at 11:39 AM Rating: Decent
first of all, malafen was dropping this for about 2 days before he was perma-killed. This is originally a reward from turning in a RANDOM VERY RARE scale from farming ST. This item however is not that powerful compared with what a guild that is capable of killing ventani already has in it's ******* and most would agree that the reward should be re-evaluated for reasons stated elsewhere. though i do have to say that opinions don't really count if you aren't the one that interact with the actual item it's quite different looking at it from the other point of view.

As a bug (I would hope), the new red dragon in WW named Malafen has been dropping this item and is on a very fast spawn time. Give this "Essance Item" to Malafen to get a new "Essance Item." There is 5 "Essance Items" that you can get.
Best, but...

The quest for these items involves a Prismatic Scale dropped off of one of the very high level mobs in Sleeper's (I would look up the exact mob, but I might get it wrong), and the scale itself is very rare. It was very cool of BotS to release this item to the public (or very rude, IMO, if someone yanked it offa their site and submitted it).

This item is *VERY* uber-rare, and very uber-powerful. It *should* only be possessed by a select few players on each server; the very best of the best. Unfortunately, due to a bugged (or, if you choose to interpret it my way, a very poorly planned and implemented) NPC, literally dozens of these items are in circulation on one server. For more info, troll around on

Grynne knows it is probably just semantics, but this is a no drop item so it is not "in circulation" maybe dozens have it on one server, but they are still dozens who were able to get IN to sleeper's tomb... (apologies for bein ****, going to look for chocolate covered hobbit now)

Actually your wrong. Malafen the dragon in WW which gives this quest was bugged for the first week in which he was in game. When killed he would drop the essence lens, and to make it worse Malafen had a short respawn timer. An un-named guild farmed him for 5 days straight. What makes this bad is that this guild had only 2 sleepers keys total in thier guild, so there is no way the could ever get a Prismatic Scale from ST, and the fact that they continuted to exploit a known bug for 5 days straight is just ridiculus. Hence now Malafen is out of the game, and replaced with Melafen! in WW.

He's back in. My guild unfortunatly killed him on a random WW farm. I wasn't there but a number of people took the faction hit and won't be able to complete these quests. He did not drop any prismatic gear so he's fixed.

This is great for ANY character, exspecially (sp?)
the classes without ranged weapons/items i.e. casters +15 to all resistance is just fantastic

#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 27 2001 at 5:32 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) One of the best, if not the best, ranged item in the game!!! Excellent Resists
