Loot Equip. on Grabber?
# Dec 17 2003 at 5:22 PM Rating: Decent
Hey, does anyone know if the Fist of Rock shows up as an equiped item on a Stonegrabber? Like a glowing fist shows up on a player?

Some weapons show up on mobs that are dropping them. I'm watching for signs of this on a Stonegrabber... but so far no FoR.

I didn't notice anything special about the stonegrabber that dropped the one I just got. First one I've seen in about 12+ hours that I've been in Mons Letalis.

aye normally mobs that drop weapons do not have the graphic as they are too large for it but never hunted a stongrabber down for one of these and i forget their size..

no 65 monk thinks this is phat lewt, go check out staff of flowing water to drool over, my personal favorite is guildie's fist of nature, draws aggro over tanks alot using that and some stick... i just dont care cuz im not a monk

Theres a serious problem if a monk out-aggroes a tank. Monks dont want aggro, and weapons that make them get aggro from the tank, suck.
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 08 2004 at 8:40 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) holy crap dude all that getting agro over a tank means that either the tank has freaking sucky equipment or he/she isnt taunt like they should so think before u talk Smiley: twocents

forgetting that mage doesnt have snares, and the only root is from earth pet. ever hear of fear kiting? i play a mage myself, but theres a LOT of spells necro gets that we dont, and the only advantages we get over them is armour for pet, nukes, and we get 4 pets to chose from.

Got my tail shortened in Mons several times till i got 49 pet now can solo pretty easy there, with kei of course. 1st day 1st hour got 2 since then ive tryed several hours with no luck? I still get the rockies but found the hoppers more profitable pretty steady drops on Per. and Exc.Hopperhides

I'm thinking it only drops in Mons Lethis...for that is the only listed zone that says it drops. I could be wrong but my logic is logical to me so...well can anyone confirm if this drops in anyother zone besides Leth? MS 100% sure it doesn't drop DSP 90% I know it doesn't drop.
RE: Just a thought...
# May 15 2003 at 1:13 PM Rating: Default
I also believe you can only loot this in ML.. I like to solo Stonegrabbers in DSP, But never see one drop.. And I fight them a good bit.. Exp. is decent, but Im after a fist of rock.. I could buy one.. But I though nah, I can probably loot one.. Well, nothing yet =P

A friend (lvl 51 shaman) and I (lvl 47 magician) decided to explore Mons Letalis for a while. We were mostly killing rockhoppers and stonegrabbers.

The zone can be frustrating in that it's so full of hills, valleys and boulders it's tough to see more than 10 yards from where you stand. That was the negative aspect of the zone. The positive aspect was that one of these fists dropped for us. I had no idea what it was worth when I took it to the bazaar. Only one other trader had one and was selling it for 1500pp. I decided to try selling it at that price also. My toon spent the night in the bazaar. The fist had been purchased by morning.

It would seem that people don't find 1500pp an unreasonable price for this weapon on Terris Thule.

1500p? really? got one for my monk-alt in the bazaar a week ago or so for like 150p... there were a few for sale, not much a higher price than that though. this being on the ct server though, so i dunno =P

My monk is using Fist of Rock / Wu's Trance Stick / Silver Chitin Handwwrap combo. How far level wise will this combo take me? Most people say that even though both weapons have low dmg, when combined with my SCHWs the haste makes up for lack of dmg in low delay. I was just wondering... Thanks for the info.

good weapon, fast, decent stats....Ive gotten 6 altogether, ALL in Mons Letalis....They without any doubt DO NOT drop in Merus Seru...

Used 2 rather effectively as a Bst up to lvl 52..

Quit posting misinformation. This item does NOT drop in Marus Seru at all. A few days you say? I spent WEEKS there, gained at least 3 full levels with upwards of 90% of total kills being stongrabbers. I estimate I killed in excess of 600 grabbers. Guess what? Not one single fist. Bad luck? I doubt it. These simply do not drop in MS.

#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 12 2002 at 8:22 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) i beg to differ, i was on my way to the grey on my monk (had aego from an earlier xps group) and had a grabber trained on me, was irritated that it stunned me and whacked me a few times so i beat it down. dropped this thing.
RE: Good low lvl weapon
# Mar 03 2003 at 10:07 PM Rating: Decent
Actually this does not drop in MS...I've lvled 3 chars there from 25 to 30 guess how many dropped? Thats right 0...w/ killing in excess of 300 (realisticly) 1000 (what it seems like) Stoners.

I've killed 30 plus Grabbers in DSP and not one has dropped there while this is not confirmation that it doesn't drop in DSP it is doubt cast by me.

# Sep 25 2002 at 3:57 PM Rating: Decent
Oh it did, did it? Well since you lied about it agroing on you (they are 100% passive, at least in Marus Seru) so i find youre whole post highly dubious. Why bother making up such a pointless story?
RE: Good low lvl weapon
# May 07 2003 at 6:10 PM Rating: Decent
within agrorange they do agro, and sadly it mostly happens when i'm after the rockhoppers for their hides. They are quite a nuisance and mostly break root premature. Depending on how the hopper is down, (as a druid it's mostly sit and watch) i mostly let them stand rooted and reroot if necessary. They hit quite fast so channeling can be occasional difficult, after looting hopper i evac to clear agro, they are quite annoying. 2nd annoying thing are the hatchlings ogthe shiknars, again agro, while i con dubious to gatherers and warriors, luckily those litle ones don't give facionhits, sadly mostly you got an entire nest on your heels (5-7) so clearing agro is best solution. Egress is such a wonderfull spell(self only evac). But since i avoid stonegrabbers i doubt i'll manage to obtain one for my beast. But it looks like an excellent weap indeed.
RE: Good low lvl weapon
# Mar 03 2003 at 10:23 PM Rating: Decent
Indeed they do not argo in MS nor in DSP (named grabbers break this rule in DSP). I've not gone to the other 2 listed zones they are in though so I cannot offer input as to there social status. Assuming they do argo in the other 2 zones that is a 50/50 percent argo or not argo not most...
RE: Good low lvl weapon
# Oct 11 2002 at 3:53 PM Rating: Excellent
Yeah, they're passive in Marus Seru, but in almost every other zone with them, they are strictly KoS
RE: Good low lvl weapon

I have lvled 4 players in this zone 23-30ish. I have killed countless Stonegrabbers in this zone. This item never drop. The only reason I dont think they will drop in MS. Is because most of the people that said they never found Fist of Rock when they where lvling, the item drops at lvl 45+. If your lvling in MS, most likly your in your 30s and never will see the item drop for you. I could not lvl any more at lvl 35 because they were all LB to me. So there is no way you could say you where lvling at 45 there. They would all be green. You need to be 45 to get the item to drop. Not sure if a lvl 45 would get one to drop in MS, would be to easy to clean the zone out.

Marus Seru.

ALL types of Stonegrabbers will NOT ATTACK ANYONE. Unless you attack them first, and other Stonegrabbers will help the one your attacking if one walks by.


Stonegrabber are still not KOS, and will not join the fight if you pull one, and a other one is sitting there. But there is named Stonegrabbers in DSP that ARE KOS. And will attack you if you run by them. But they have a very low aego range, so you have to run over them to get them to attack you.

Stone grabbers will mob if you go into wolf form. bottom line. that's the only way I have encountered for them to mob.

ehhhhh... these..hmm...I don't know how to explain this to you low lvl monks but...I have no idea how that the PC is 2k+ the thing isn't bad for lvl 30 and below, I suppose but after 30 I would hide behind that thing, get a jade mace and a wu's <Just somethin cheap to throw at lvl 30 monks>

A level 30 monk has hands that are 10/34 when fighting bare handed. At 40th they go to 12/32 and at 50th they are 14/30. This is 7/18 with ac and stats, is NOT lore and can go in either hand. So this is not exactly a "low lvl" monk weapon. As just about anyone will tell you faster is pretty much always better. If grouped with a chanter and a decent haste item it makes sense to fight barehanded but that isn't always available.
If the drop rate on this was better it would be nice for the market but I've killed at least a 40-50 stonegrabbers and I've gotten 1 drop. Maybe I'm just unlucky but people I've talked to have had similar experience.

A jade mace is a nice weapon but weighs almost twice as much and is 1HB and cost about the same but has no ac or stats to go along with it and is much sought after by alot more classes. This is a very nice weapon to raise your H2H skill with. Any monk that neglects her/his H2H is going to hate themselves if they ever decide they want their epic. heh I wish someone had "thrown" this at my monk when I was around 30.
Nice combo

My 53 Monk was fighting in the Grey when I zoned over to Mons Letalis to avoid a train. For the heck of it I soloed the first Stonegraber I saw and it droped the fist. I don't know how rare these are supposed to be..Maybey I was just very lucky..Has anyone equiped 2? and if so did u like the combo?

General Info
# Jul 01 2002 at 3:07 AM Rating: Default
I am almost positive these do not drop in Marus Seru, dunno about the other zones. I have killed in Marus Seru from lvl 30-35 on 3 different characters now and killed AT LEAST 300 stonegrabbers and never had one drop. Dmg bonus is based on your lvl AND also the weapon's dly. As for the monk epic, it's to my understanding that it's effect is a right click haste/atk/ac, like a bard song almost, that only last 9 seconds per click. If you do not use a weapon, it makes your hands 9/16.

Where were all you people the day that VI announced in a patch about the listing of damage bonus on an item? It is based on level mostly, class also plays a big role (druids don't get it, whereas warriors and monks get the most). Seems like half you people out there either just started or don't bother reading the vast changes that occur with each patch day.

a lvl 51 necro's experience in mons letalis

i started solo'ing here 4 blues into lvl 51. i killed 145 stonegrabbers (yes i took a body count) before i looted one of these. was grouped with 2 beastlords when i looted one. 9 stonegrabbers later, a second dropped. overall, i was in this zone for a week at around 2 or 3 hours a day, even though i didn't play a couple days. now after killing not only the stonegrabbers, but now dubious to the shiknar and killed quite a few rockhoppers, i hit lvl 52 by the time the second fist dropped. so if you come here for one of these, dont get all that excited that you will get one within a day, or two, or three :( i also have a monk alt that im twinking out heh, nice wep tho and worth the wait

lvl 52 now
# Mar 20 2002 at 1:18 AM Rating: Decent
These can't be as rare as people claim. In the last 2 days, 6 hours total of fighting in Letalis, I have looted 4 of these. Two went to my monk, and I sold the other two to friends. Maybe it was luck, but I doubt it.

well i have killed about 50 stonegrabbers in dawnshroud peaks, they are about lvl 39 and no fists of rock, unless im very unlucky id say they dont drop off the stonegrabber here!

I bumped into a guy in Netherbian Lair that had found one of these and he said that he found it in Mons Letalis.

It's a possibility that they don't drop off the Stongrabbers in the other 3 listed zones but they should especially if the creatures are the same level of difficulty.

Can anyone confirm finding the Fist of Rock in other zones besides Mons Letalis?
# Feb 28 2002 at 2:10 PM Rating: Decent
Hmmm, I thought they only dropped by Stonegrabbers in Mons Letalis .. *pause* Marus Seru? DIE! .. Or does it means that there is Stonegrabbers in Marus Seru but they dont drop the Fist of Rock? :P
RE: *Panic*
# Jul 22 2002 at 3:17 PM Rating: Decent
I'm pretty sure it just means there are Stonegrabbers in MSeru. I've been hunting there for the past week and have killed hundreds of Stonegrabbers and have hardly seen even a copper piece drop let alone the Fist of Rock, hehe. Though, I'm hunting there for exp not lewt so it doesn't bother me.

I'm a 51 druid, spent 3 days and got 2 yellows (good for 51) killing stonegrabbers. Musta killed at least 40 of them... never got a fist of the rock.

# Jan 31 2002 at 9:24 AM Rating: Decent
5 kills was all it took me today to get one.
BTW how does a 52 druid spend 3 days killing these and get a body count of 40? Not to mention 40 does not equal 2 yellows in 51.

Sounds like over 3 days, didn't spend many RL hours hunting Mr Rock. That, and they weren't hunting the rock people exclusively... exp at that level bites.
