The EQDOD_man_v5.pdf file in the everquest directory has a section on evolving items, and a screenshot to help explain it. This item is one of the items listed. Has anyone who's got one of these items noticed any chances to theirs?

worthless to melee?
# Aug 02 2004 at 9:07 PM Rating: Good
Now granted i'm in a time guild so pretty much all my gear has at least +10 to all saves if not more. THIS IS NOT WORTHLESS TO MELEE! i swapped out my elemental gear for my resist gear all the time in PoTime. Hell bertoxx(time) has a 975hp per tick Dot that you HAVE to have over 400 to DR and PR to resist. Granted he's a time mob, but still dont let anyone tell you resists are worthless.
#REDACTED, Posted: May 03 2002 at 4:38 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) im gonna put my 2cp in here too ... 10vs all 8ac ... should go to tanks first ... casters have it easy with resists. Tanks need to worry bout AC and Resists at once ... dropping 50-100 some ac for resists just isnt really all that great, give em something to make up the difference, happy tanks keep the guild alive, unhappy tanks forget to taunt, and get the guild killed.

I solo a ton, I take all the HT's so I dont have to heal my pet, I resist a lot of them. Hit points is just another resource to me, the more I use them well the less mana I have to dish out, making faster kills, or more importantly a more steady rythm, down time sucks.

You speak as though the only time someone might play this game is to Raid mobs that hit for 1100 points. We are not all you, many poeple hook up for small groups, duo's or solo. Any AC, resists and mana are usefull in these situations for any class that could use this item.

Finally dont even get me started on how usefull 10 to all resists is running around on a Zek server.

oh god.. first off why would you be taking hits for your pet, your pet regenerates HP a LOT faster than you. base regen is 90/tick, not to mention at 65 you SHOULD have LDoN+ pet focus, which ups it to 250+/tick. if youre taking damage it should only be from rod canni, which your regen spell + AA regen (if you went that route) should counteract.

to post above flatsnap's: as for stuff hitting 1100, yeah maybe final encounters or higher end trash mobs, but there have been times when we are clearing and a wanderer has just came up to me beating on me, and guess what, if i didnt have maxed defense, virtue, and all the AC from items, i would have flat out died. no casters shouldnt be taking hits, and yeah they will die if like AoW goes after them, but on raid encounters, casters should NEVER be getting hit, if they do they are probably doing the raid a huge favor by dieing early.

this earring is a good caster item, resists are very important for casters considering how incrediby low their HP pool is. i believe i was getting around 3khp raid buffed when i played my mage. it always went mana > hit points > resists > everything else. this earring nails 2 of those great. 40 mana on an earring isnt too shabby by the time a guild gets here, 10 resist all is crazy, and you will be damn glad you have this earring when you start farming NToV and deeper in SSRA. my mage had 100 something svf and svc unbuffed, 150ish svm, but svp and svd were around 50, i would have definitely swapped in this earring (was using summoned with 20mana 20hp, mostly for the mana pres).

tank wise, you should be looking at earrings with AC and HP at this point, solstice is pretty popular early on. resists are just icing for ear slot. earring of quirkiness is a pretty decent tank earring, 6ac 35hp and rounded stats. arachnid antennae is a very nice tank earring, and drops from rallius in PoD. earring of endless speed is really great, 3ac, 25hp, 3 all stats, 3 all resist, 41% haste.

No Stamina and No hitpoints = crap earring for melee. Sorry to say any tank at this level should be pushing for maximum hitpoints. AC means nothing at this level since all tanks have maxxed their AC to the 1350 AC cap. This earring might as well go to the casters as no other classes will want it if they are smart.

Actually, this is a decent earring for everyone. Not every melee is a tank, and not every melee has reached that "AC cap." Rogues, Rangers, Monks, etc are all major damage dealers, and the saves would be great for those AE mobs. Add in the fact that caster mobs are a lot smarter now in their spell choices, and non-raid resists are becoming more important than ever. While I would agree that the earring might be more appealing to a caster, I doubt many melees would mind having this.

Rharg'Zhezum drops this
RE: droped
# Mar 16 2002 at 9:22 PM Rating: Decent
Aye. For those of you not familiar with Ssra Temple, Rhag Zhezum (Rhag 1) is the first of the boss mobs. See my post under him for more info.

what mob
# Feb 10 2002 at 10:46 PM Rating: Decent
there are only a few real high end mobs ( meaning above level 60) in the temple. none of them list this as their drop. can anyone clarify exactly what dropped this, what level of the temple ect.
nice stats
# Dec 28 2001 at 12:30 AM Rating: Decent
This earring makes me drool due to the stats. Can you think of any earring that gives +10 to all svs AND 8ac? This would be a great item for everybody even if it didn't have the 30 mana. I play a monk (43atm) and I can't wait till I get high enough level to go get this.
Temple Level

I hunted in the Temple with two groups where I was the lowest at 54. The temple guards quad hit me for 270pts. They also have a very long reach and aggro easily on casters. Needless to say as an enchanter I was glad we had a cleric epic with us!

#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 17 2001 at 4:02 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) While it is not quite in the 'uber' gear catagory, it is still a really nice item. Anyone know the aprox. level required to solo this (if it can be soloed)? Thanx alot.
RE: Dear God
# Dec 27 2001 at 10:23 AM Rating: Decent
First off, it IS a uber earing. Secondly the mob we killed to get one was red to 60. Level required to solo? Ummm, 75 if the right class might do it :p.

this is truly a beautiful earring. we're gonna pillage the temple today, so i'm crossing my fingers.

This reminds me of the axe of resistance that came out from TOV (i think) a bit ago. Seems resistance items are being even more popular then they used to be.

You say stupid crap like that to start flames dont ya :-) Ya think 10vs all is useless? Goto ToV sometime see how long 100hps lasts ya with low resists. Ya dont resist you loose 350 hps, ya do resist ya loose none...hmmmm which is more usefull....hp's or resists? DUH

RE: Useless?
# Dec 15 2001 at 3:11 PM Rating: Default
I agree that it's certainly not useless, and it's an awesome resistance item, but the person you just told to "Goto ToV sometime" is a member of Vindication, one of the top 3 guilds on Druzzil Ro, and I assure you they kill in ToV quite often. So I assure you he/she knows all about ToV.

Most casters use Blue Diamoned Earrings. This kicks the crap out of Blue Diamond Earrings. 'Nough said.

Actually, the last one we got did go to a Monk, but pretty much everyone Ayed on it, lol. This is a great earring for the puller and main tank (60 War) of any raid. BD is nice but if you take hits, wearing 0 AC gear really sucks. I usually try to find a balance of resist and HP/AC gear since I almost take more damage from melee than AEs on raids.

Are you kidding?! No monk could stand that weight! :-P
RE: Nice :)
# Dec 14 2001 at 6:49 PM Rating: Default
easy man... you almost started world war 3 there hehehe If this dropped on a pvp server i wonder who would get it? lol i bet everyone would want to roll cause 10 sv all on a earing is UBERx2 its like BD earing on steroids
RE: Nice :)
# Mar 16 2002 at 9:16 PM Rating: Good
You mean you guys don't settle loot issues by killing each other? ;)
Heh, seriously though, the resists on this earring are mightily impressive and at this point in the game, even on a blue server, I'm more into resists than stats.
