still selling well

The last 2 months i think i have sold 6 of these for the whooping price of 3500pp. (the fact that theres someone else trying to sell it for 35k might help!)

Takes me about 3 clearing rounds to get 1,and often i get 2 rings if i bother to take a 4th round.

note; lore .. good thing is theres a banker in the zone, so should you happen to get 2 rings in a row, put one in shared bank then run back and loot the other ;)

Anyone got a loc for the general Bandit Camp area? EQ Atlas map is lacking in detail. Thanks!
Nice Shammy pc.

Picked one up in the Bazaar on Innoruuk for 1500p!! Nice pc for My Shammy and a great price.I'd take two more at that price LOL.
For all you bards...

For all you bards out there that want to get one of these easier than pie...All you need is runspeed 3, simply swarm kite all the bandits, there is a nice wide open area in the middle of alll three camps, just make sure you aren't too close to the mushrooms. I got one of these in about an hour,a nd 3 or so full camp spawns. How many other classes can say that? ; )
Nice Ring for casting tanks

We camped these guys for an hour with a 61 Shaman, 60 Necromance, 53 Druid, 53 Mage, 53 Wiz and my almost 50 Paladin. They were tough for the Necro to single pull, so an enchanter, or a monk who can really pull is advisable.

Only one ring dropped and yours truly won the roll. This is a great ring for any casting tank, even though the effect is useless to us. It is similiar to those crafted AC6 with 65 HP (Velium Fire Wedding Ring, everyone wears, but with resists and a mana bonus.

# Apr 16 2003 at 12:41 PM Rating: Decent
I'm torn between putting this on my wizzie or my BST. Prolly my BST, at least for now.

Oh, and when we started to camp those guys, one of our party said "my 65 warrior friend couldn't single pull them, so we might be in trouble". Bah! I'm a 53 Monk and they were fairly easy to single pull, only had one train that killed me, and that was because FD failed. Prolly a high level Chanter or Bard can do it, but nothing is more reliable than a single pulling monk, imo.

I was single pulling them all night with my Cleric. Was easy, we all got a ring too.

Just bought this ring for 1k in the bazaar today, figured it was a good price since I saw it sell for 2-4k before the bazaar became active for trading. Was going to twink it to one of my lower level caster alts but let me get the effect straight, it only works for casters who can summon pets, and highlevel pets to? And oh yeah, woot! my 100th post :)

Just to highlight the cross server differences in bazaar prices... These things are waaay overpriced on Veeshan. People started selling these for 6K when they had the EEIII focus. Then everyone forgot to lower prices when they changed the focus. I wish they would do 2 things with the bazaar. The first is allow people to place a bid for items (they would have to put the money in there and then) so that we can get an idea what the floor prices for these items should be. The second is allow people to deposit items with a consignment seller who will sell your goods for you and give you cash when you get back. That way items will sell even if you are offline.
Nice Ring Regardless...

I bought one last night on Cazic-Thule of 750pp at bazaar, decent upgrade to what I had. +55 mana is a nice bonus as well.
6 hour camp...
# Aug 05 2002 at 2:55 PM Rating: Good
....of the Shadel Bandits (located on the left zone after zoning in from FG town. We camped both the upper and lower Shadel Camps for 6 hours and netted a total of 6 of these rings. Not a bad ring and the xp was also good for that timeframe. Our group consisted mainly of a 58 Monk, 56 Ranger, 52 Druid, 53 Cleric, 55 Cleric and a few in and out floaters - 56 Shammy, 60 Shammy, 56 Pally. There doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason to when they happy hunting !!!

after the emergency patch my Shadel Bandit ring now has summoning haste 2, what a joke a focus benefit thats of zero benefit to any character high enough to get this ring. with extended enhancement 3 it fit the difficulty and lvl of the characters who were able to get it. I hope this was a mistake and will be fixed.

RE: changed focus
# Jul 26 2002 at 2:45 PM Rating: Decent
Aye the switch is a bummer. Notice though, most items with XXXX 3 is on No Drop Items though.

They probably did not want to make XXXXX 3 effects easily tradeable.

i know. what a god damn joke. Sometimes i think verant programers have smoked themselves retarted.
# Jun 06 2002 at 3:59 PM Rating: Decent
Mine today 06/06/02 has Summoning Haste 2, but from what i can tell, it doesn't work on my shaman pet.
presumably this is because its level 45?

# Jun 12 2002 at 8:18 AM Rating: Default
thats because there are special item effect just for summoning for each class of pet

Not true. Summoning Haste II works on any pet summons, but spell has to be level 44 or under.
Nice VI

Gah bought one last week for my ranger 3k and now i saw price jump this week :)

This is so good, now chanter can cast KEI for much longer (that + AA ability) , same for cleric and BoA, to name a few :)

I think that was a good move by VI
Price will definitely go up
# Jun 05 2002 at 12:46 PM Rating: Decent
Thanks to the caster balancing you can probably expect these things to start going from anywhere from 3-4k :-)
RE: Price will definitely go up
# Jun 05 2002 at 3:31 PM Rating: Decent
Price will also go up due to the fact it's a buff focus item now also.

I have one of these, and as a shaman, extended enhancement III is worth more than an incremental 1-2K. I would guess that this item will start selling for closer to 6-8K.

Thank god I already have one. WOOOT!

I think you will find these going for less then 1k on most servers. With FG AE going pretty much non-stop and between 1-2 dropping with each pull of the bandits. So your market will get saturated very quickly.

This is an amazing Mana item. Trade for a 5 Int Ring anyone?

I got one of these for a port from someone, I thought it was a pretty generous donation. ;) My chanter would like it ;)
# Mar 17 2002 at 5:40 AM Rating: Decent
We broke the camp and pulled as they respawned, killing bugs while we waited, there for maybe 2 - 3 hours and did'nt get any rings during that time, mmm maybe they have nerfed the drop rate.( good exp though.

You really think the price of this ring is 3k or more? Good grief, I don't think so, although it is a very nice piece. getting the spawn broken on the four on the hill was not easy. They hit hard and we had two clerics. Maybe they are worth that much.

Any Comments.
RE: Price
# Apr 16 2002 at 12:41 PM Rating: Decent
AN item is worth what someone is willing to pay for it. For quite some people who have been playing EQ since it came out 3k is change and they will be more than willing to pay that for it in order to not have to do the boring camp.

Granted, I got mine for 1500pp, but that is not to say that I wouldn't have paid 3k if asked for it.
I'd use it
# Dec 14 2001 at 10:56 PM Rating: Decent
Hell, even I'd get rid of one of my 6ac 65hp rigns for one of these. I'm a warrior so even though I have no use for the 55 mana, it would be between 10svd and 5svc or a loss of 10hp. I'd prefer to resists over 10hp =)

same here, I'd GLADLY take a 10hp hit for the extra resists. I'm just weird that way. :p

Wish I could wear two
# Dec 11 2001 at 11:28 AM Rating: Excellent
200 isn't a cap any more, but the mana gain from 201 to 255 is 6 mana per point at level 60. That makes this the equivalent of a 9 WIS ring, plus the AC and resists.
RE: Wish I could wear two
# Mar 19 2002 at 12:08 PM Rating: Default

Actually the mana per wis/int point at level 60 is twelve, not six. That would make this ring equivalent to around a four to five wis/int ring. Of course, with Kodiac's running I come very close to the 255 cap in wisdom as a cleric, and will be able to break that when I switch out my Paw of Opalla with the epic, making this a nice ring for the extra mana, plus the HPs, AC, and saves are much better than your standard jasper ring (Jasper rings having no AC, HPs or saves).

Edit : There I go leaving with out explaining stuff again /em smacks himself. The equation for mana for a caster is as follows (note: substitute either your wisdom or intelligence in depending on what kind of caster you are) : [(wis or int)/5] + 2 and then multiply that number by your level. For example a level 60 cleric with 250 wisdom would have (250/5) + 2 = 52 then * 60 is 3120 mana. Add on any + mana bonuses and you will have your total mana pool. Plus I would like to add that if you are looking solely for resists and extra mana, I would suggest looking for diamond and, even better, blue diamond gear. I wear Velium Diamond Wedding Bands for raid situations, but I'm not sure if there are Blue Diamond Rings that would be better (my jewelcrafting skill is at one, it would be best to ask a jeweler than myself). Hope that helps.

RE: Wish I could wear two
# Apr 05 2002 at 3:10 AM Rating: Excellent
The first person who posted here is right. After you pass 200 wisdom, each point of wisdom gives you half as much mana as the points pre-200, so at 60 you receive 6 mana for every one wisdom.
RE: Wish I could wear two
# Dec 03 2002 at 2:47 PM Rating: Decent
Actually the mana increase after 200 Wis/Int is not level dependetn. It is a straight 5.8 mana per point after 200.

Alot of 50+ Paladin's on my server wear the 6ac/65 hp rings...I'd trade this out for one of mine as I am sure any other paladin (or anyone for that matter) would.

wonders if this drop will be nerfed.
# Dec 07 2001 at 10:24 PM Rating: Decent
these rings seems to drop at a common rate. the group i was with ended up getting rings for everyone in about 3hrs. we even got an extra ring to give to a groupmates friend that was within the zone. overall, this item will probably get nerfed and will probably become more rare.
RE: wonders if this drop will be nerfed.
# Dec 18 2001 at 2:16 PM Rating: Good
They already cut it back, as the drop rate of spells in the same zone was cut back. But calling it a nerf isn't quite fair; that insane drop rate was more of a "welcome to Luclin, hurry out to the new zones and explore" and was deliberately set very high for the first few days (which was rather cruel to some of our foreign friends, who couldn't get the game until a week or more after its U.S. release).
best droppable ring?
# Dec 07 2001 at 8:34 PM Rating: Decent
Easily one of the best droppable rings out there for wis/int casters and even hybrids. At the high end game you are looking for AC, mana, resists, and HP (not necessarily in that order). With the upgraded Chardok, Ring of Di'Zok and the quest rings from there were some of the best rings available, now this one blows those out of the water.
# Dec 07 2001 at 7:08 PM Rating: Decent
great item for casters w/ 200 int or wis. great mana and hp.. the saves are also nice, for various things
RE: good

200 isn't a soft cap anymore
RE: good
# Mar 04 2002 at 10:48 PM Rating: Decent

Yes it still is.. in some ways. Each point of int/wis after 200 is only worth half as much as it is up to that point. In other words, 200th wis at 50 is worth 10 mana, 201st is worth 5.
Or, 5 mana past 200 int/wis is worth one int wis. Or this ring has the equivalent of 11 post 200 int/wis. Quite nice.
Drop rate

With a very unballenced group (all guildies along for spells) we had Monk (me) 3 rangers 2 druids all 55+. We were scooping up spells for us and the rest of out guild (Arbiters) and decided to roam around to various baddies In fungus Grove. We were able to clear the 2 bandit camps near the entrance in about the respawns. (10 bandits) with that we were seening one drop about evey hour... I was the only one who didn't walk away with one
