Still drop......
# Mar 12 2004 at 10:45 AM Rating: Decent
Just wanna say the Xi Thall still pop and the cloak dropped tonight.I checked ME after the server was up,Xi Thall is right on the top of track list.Ask a guildie for some help and drop it down.

Used the strategy someone posted in "Xi Thall" page.I pulled the whole houses to UP and ensnared the named while Weaponshield(Ranger here).The Named stopped in UP ZI when I zoned back.Then just Trueshot it to death while my Bard friend tanking it.

Remember putting your MR gears if you are pulling them to UP...HT and spells quite hurts

This cloak dropped in the 3rd patch day this week(2004/03/12 Friday).Guess there at least something good about so many server down hehe .BTW,it is the 2nd time I ever saw Xi Thall spawn in my whole EQ life...kinda a rare mob imo...

want to laugh and rant...

...because FT2 may be the same mana regen as breeze but it stacks with it, and all other mana regen spells, so anyone who can't see the value of a 35ac back item with FT2 don't try to get one or if your one of many pal/sk s there when he falls pass over it.

I guess only the pallies and SKs I know or play go oom 'cause they pull and hold aggro with spells and never have time to med. (and if BLs and rangers can use too, hard to tell pic says no list says yes, then they can also use it for those times where you always melee and never have time to sit and get mana back.)

Whoever thinks this cloak is overrated is a total and complete idiot and should not be allowed to play EQ

FT2 is like = to breeze lol not even that so stfu... ac though is indeed nice and if i saw one of these being sold ( thats if it wasn't no drop) i would have to say i would hope it wouldn't be as sold as high as boots of flowing slime....
RE: cloak

If your SK is also pulling, he/she may not have time to be medding. Therefore, even FT 2 is very helpful. Could get back 40 mana on a long pull.

Paladins, who may need to be chain casting stuns and shut to hold aggro could use this as well. Would give 80 mana back durring a 4 minute fight, maybe enough for that much needed last stun or heal.

And yes, the AC is amazing.

bards should have been added to the useable classes being as how the only mana regen spells/items/songs we can use are FT ones..high ac is ALWAYS welcome on a crowd controlling class, but far more efficient on a tank (provided they havent already reached the cap)
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 29 2002 at 10:16 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Cloak is overrated. No hp, no sta, I'd only use it while medding or after rez. It's a neat little toy, but it's not anything ridiculously good.

cape still drops, two days ago someone was selling loot rights to it in auction channel on saryn, alas i had not the money to purchase it, otherwise i surely would have
RE: drops
# Sep 09 2002 at 9:13 AM Rating: Default
Selling looting rights? You realize how ridiculous that makes the player look that is auctioning it? Ultimate greed and no assurances that the person paying will actually get to loot it. After all anyone can loot it after the counter runs out. Better yet make a good reputation for themself by giving the loc of it and allow the first player to get to it loot the item.
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 29 2002 at 7:46 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Fine insult...calling someone ridiculous...but in fact it's a logical idea.

That's a sad state of affairs. REALLY sad state of affairs.

Did I mention it was a sad state of affairs?

Just sad. Very sad. Sad sad sad.

and people wonder why so many really good items are lore no drop...
RE: not ridiculous
# Nov 23 2003 at 11:19 AM Rating: Default
There is an assclown on the Saryrn server, named Dominatoor, who regularly farms Umbral Plains for no drop items and then auctions the looting rights. He steals every decent mob in that zone that is ever up. So yes, it's possible to auction no drop items.
RE: not ridiculous
# May 28 2004 at 5:14 PM Rating: Default
The solution is pretty easy. After 2 mins the corpse opens up. If he's tries to "hold" the corpse train him. After he gets squashed run over, loot it, take the death if you have to or get the hell out of the zone.

I'm for selling loot right, the game is about making money and progressing your character. Im not here to twink those who will probably just shelf thier lv 51.01 toon because they hit the hell levels and don't have the fortitude to finish what they started. (i wish i had 10p for every toon i saw hit 51 and disappeared never to be seen again)

But if you don't like paying for loot rights train em. Hell, train me if you don't like me selling loot rights. Its a game, I'm not gonna get all pissed cause you fought fire with fire. Last thing i care to see though is people whining on this forum about how I'm supposed to act in the game. EQ isn't utopia people.

And by the way...this cloak sucks if your over 55 or so. I might hang on to it for emergency med situation or when hp isnt important.

Still Drops?
# Jun 25 2002 at 1:59 PM Rating: Default
Can anyone confirm this still drops?

I have never seen Xi THall up in the past three months.

no drop?
# Jun 24 2002 at 3:03 PM Rating: Default
is this item no drop as it says? i heard it wasn't but not sure
Xi Thall
# May 02 2002 at 10:05 AM Rating: Decent
Ok yeah this drops off a easy mob for the level it is, but I'm just going to tell ya this....He's in a very dificult place to get to. Sure you can have a cleric/pal run in the lakehouse agro him and train to zone then pick him....but he's got a ph folks.

If you are going to get this item you are gonna havee to keep the lakehouse clear of level 57-58 centiens for hours at a time. Sure one group of low 50s can own a Xi Thall Centien, but can you own 4? That is can you own 4 clerics? And don't forget the repot of the xi vius in the area that will cheal them.....if you want this cape you are gonnna need 1 group of 60s (with very high DPS) or a small size raid to camp a rare mob.

So basically, this loot is not what people are griping about being to easy to get.....go try getting and come back ******** on here about how the repops chealed your mobs

58th pal Torv
Get REAL!!!

I just have to say to those that say "Oh gee this too easy let it only drop once per 6 months" Dang people there are zones and places out there that many of us will never even get to see because they require such an uber guild to do that anyone else has no chance. Many uber guilds are locking up these days and not allowing people in unless you cater to their every whim for months on end or some other crazy stuff and maybe some just do not play so much to be able to accomadate an uber guild so what is their choices to get good items in the game. I would have to think that whomever says the nice stuff should take 40+ toons to get is someone that has the ability to do that, maybe some of us would like some decent gear too without having to go through hell to get.

What's the droprate on this beauty? Plan on taking a group of guildies up to ME for a while and I'm trying to get a feel for what we should expect to get so that I can have loot figured out in advance rather than sitting there scribbling on a sheet of paper and debating need while the corpse's time is ticking away and people are arguing hehe... If it's predetermined, nobody argues ;)
What a delightful item :-)

I think rangers can use this now... when my friend was reading the stat off the one that dropped last night, he said shd/pal/rngr. Think they patched it.
Grodan´s Flowing CLoak
# Dec 26 2001 at 8:59 AM Rating: Good
This nice thing drops of Xi Thall a level 60 Mob in maidens and either this Mob is WAY to easy for the loot he drops or the loot is way to good for the mob it drops off.Dont get me wrong,i got this Cloak last night and im happy as hell with it but it´s somewhat not right to get it so easy,thus far anyone you would show a picture of this cloak would say or guess it´s from a mob ntov style.

Anyway here´re some info on that mob,like i said he´s called Xi Thall looks like a shrunken Itraer Vius and is found in maiden in a House with 4 or 5 rooms,he´s in the last room and every room is filled with 4 to 5 Xi Vius,Xi Xaui and Xin Thall Centiens so all in all like 21 to 25 mobs plus the Xi Thall inside the house.

Last night we were kinda lucky since someone tried to pull him and pulled the whole house and somehow we were able to get the Xi Thall single,whatever he was easy we got one group with 60 and 59druid,60shammy,60 war and two 60 pals,he was hitting for 180ies hps i would say were around 20K maybe a bit more or less only spell i´ve seen so far was invoke fear which stunned me two times for some seconds.

Two good groups can kill his guards np and farm the whole house with ease and since Xi Thall is the joke he is,his respawn time is something around a half hour.

happy farming ;-)

Just for my information how is the bazaar suppposed to work, haven't seen much on it or seen many people talk about it?
RE: Bazaar?
# Dec 16 2001 at 9:16 AM Rating: Decent
Basically, the expected plans for The Bazaar will allow you to set up your own NPC merchant which will let you to set your own prices and sell without actually being there. As travelers come through the Nexus, they might stop by The Bazaar and check out the latest merchandise...

Greetings, Ports, can I interest you in a 'Cloak of Flames'?

From what I've heard, it'll work just like any other merchant. But I'm not sure how the money will be deposited, possibly directly into your bank? They haven't explained it in detail, but it seems very promising at the moment.

Hope this helps :)
Hybrid Moments
# Dec 13 2001 at 1:20 AM Rating: Decent
I guess all that debating about whether hybrids would be screwed over "yet again" finally paid off, didn't it? 35 AC is incredible in itself, and to add to it, Flowing Thought II is very useful to classes that don't usually have the option of sitting and medding. It was almost inconceivable to have an item with Flowing Thought I before Luclin came out, as most of those items dropped off of gods.

It seems as though Luclin isn't only giving people what they wanted, it's actually surpassing most players expectations (minus all the technical problems). But this comes with good reason, as most of the new equipment is nodrop, and cannot be farmed.

I hate to say it, being a merchant myself, but I believe EC might eventually become a thing of the past. The Bazaar will take the place of a person who doesn't want to sit and haggle prices, but rather set a price, and know that it will sell at that price no matter what. And with all of the new nodrop items, this game will finally be getting back to the original high end aspect of the game -- being rewarded with things of your level that you can actually obtain at your level, rather than 20 levels down the line.

All in all, Luclin has got my eyes peeled. Once I get it running properly, anyhow. Just remember, the items have only just started rolling in.

breeze, not clarity
# Dec 13 2001 at 2:17 AM Rating: Default
Breeze = 2mp/tic, Clarity = 6mp/tic
Actually you are mistaken
# Dec 12 2001 at 9:48 PM Rating: Decent
it is not clarity, but 2 mana per tick...Big difference.
