He dropped it and some spells on 06/06/2006 on Luclin, nice score for my baby mage.
Does it stack?

Does this rune stack with Barrier of Force (The wizard epic rune)? If not I'm just going to try for another FT range item.

If you read below, you would see that it doesn't stack with Wiz epic.

Almost positive though that it doesn't count toward FT cap. Was a great item for me, used it for a long time.

Yeah, FV really makes it hard to track the droppability of items sometimes :-/
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 17 2002 at 7:13 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You've probably confused it with Orb of the Infinte Void.

I was pretty happy when I first got this item, but as we kill better things in Ssra, this starts to look not as uber. Careful if you go for this that you are not excluding yourself from better lewts in the next 6 monyhs or so.
Just my 2cp worth.

I must have it...

This is a great item for everyone, however if boon of recovery stacks with necro lich form then it is an AWESOME item for a necro.

What drops it?

Geeze this is a killer ENC item. Secondar/Range is great to pick which slot you want it in. Once I finish my epic this will be a great combo. Sweet resists with int and cha is awesome. Looks like I'll have to go run to the deep. Dont really need the effect as an ench, but if it'll stack with everything else it'll work ok with me.

Can anyone tell me what mob drops this or is it a random drop for all mobs?
RE: What drops it?
# Feb 11 2002 at 7:58 PM Rating: Decent
Thought Horror Overfiend drops it.. there's a pic of him in the beastiary.. He's big, ugly, lvl 65, ton of hps and casts an AE that causes you to fizzle your mana away. Quite a pain to kill.

# Jul 05 2002 at 12:54 AM Rating: Excellent
Actually very easy to kill(especially now that hes rooted) all you gotta do is get your tank to run out and agro him, he AEs, if he AEs the fizzle spell you cast RGC(remove greater curse) on all your casters to get rid of it, and leave it on your melee. Then get your tank to agro him again and get the slow spell casted on all your caster, the 2 AE's do not stack, and he hits soft and is slowable, 2 clerics is enough for this fight if u bring a modrod 2 mage. Will be a long fight though, he has high AC and 900k HP
Stacking issues

Great Mage item if you dont have Shield of Auras, or necro, it does stack with Lich and has 3hp/tic.

Also dunno where you heard this "absorb 5000 damage" bullcrap but it's not true. If I use a mod rod (300 dmg) I still take 150 dmg. 300-150 = 150 ie it absorbs 150 dmg period. It has a 6-7 second casting time also, not instant, and yes it's NODROP.

Otherwise, the Overfiend is a FUN fight. Took 40 of us a long long time to kill it. The AE causes you to fizzle I'd say about 90% of your spells, nasty.. and he has approx 1M hips. (this was before he was rooted)

These are now no drop too
# Dec 21 2001 at 10:13 AM Rating: Decent
I got this last night. Mine is also no drop.

Insta click would have been sweet, but I can see why it isn't. Still, I think the damage absorbtion is more than 150. I lasted a lot longer taking damage than I thought I would with a 150 point absorber. Have to test some more. Would have been super sweet if it was targetable, but I am not complaining.

The other nice thing is there is finally an uber with good caster loots. I am also wearing the arms he drops. Can't remember exact stats, but I think they are AC 15 mr/fr/cr 15, str 25, sta 10, hp 55, mana 100 Caster only.

# Dec 21 2001 at 5:44 AM Rating: Default
Yes, it's nice. It WAS instant-cast for almost a week. I can't believe they nerfed it to 5 secs (seems more like 8 tho). /cry

"You're right, this would be horribly unbalancing as rune effects can have 1 point left on them, and you can be hit for 5000 points of damage and still take no actual damage, you just lose the effect. As long as you clicked this once per round of attack, you would be invulnerable."

When it was insta-cast it was useful. Mostly coz you could click it and get the regen going to recover hitpoints that ya just lost from getting whacked for 500 points.

Maybe if a lvl 1 caster had this, it would make them "invulnerable" but not really coz u need to deal damage to kill a mob, standing or running while clicking this thing aint gonna do **** to save you. 150pts aint nothing at level 60. Also, it does NOT stack with wiz epic. So it's one or the other.

This Overfiend guy takes 30+ high level chars to kill and has massive and I do mean massive hitpoints. We've killed him at least a half a dozen times and he has dropped the orb once only. hell, the mobs in the last stretch of the break to this guy have 50k+ hitpoints and are yellow to 60. I doubt anykind of farming is gonna be happening to flood the market with Orbs. Mine is the only one Fennin Ro that I know of and we are 3 weeks in to SoL. Also, Vi has changed the Overfiend and made him even harder to kill =/

Bottom line: Rare drop from rare hard to kill boss mob, requiring a major raid to obtain. I'm glad I got mine when I did. pre-nerf was awesome useful item. Post-nerf it's ok after a rez and nice stat/resist gear.

what does held mean, with primary 2ndary and range?

RE: held?
# Dec 19 2001 at 2:38 PM Rating: Decent
Ga, held means when its in primary hand it does NOT act as a weapon, so if you put it in main, you wuld never attack, it would just sit there.
RE: held?
# Dec 18 2001 at 6:57 PM Rating: Decent
It means if it's on your cursor it also counts. Just like a rogue's lockpicks.
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 18 2001 at 8:04 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) yeah right...if you get this and you sell it then your just plain stupid.
not instant
# Dec 17 2001 at 11:29 PM Rating: Decent
actually it says there is a 5 second casting time, 2.25sec recovery .. . . so its not quite the unlimited damage suppressor you thought.

however it is the best darn range slot item i know of for my chanter . .. maybe in 22 levels i'll have to seek this puppy out
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 18 2001 at 8:35 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Actually it WAS instant-cast, but the recent patch changed it to what it was meant to be in the first place.
oh my god

range equipable?

this = 50k. easy. if not 50k, than more.
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 17 2001 at 8:16 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Wow, 3hp a tic clickable effect! NICE! Not to mention the stats! /drool and it's not even no drop
Re: ....
# Dec 17 2001 at 9:42 PM Rating: Decent

RE: Re: ....
# Dec 18 2001 at 4:48 PM Rating: Good
I'd place money on the fact that it is NOT instant cast time. It probably has a long cast time. Can you imagine an instant cast time 150 rune? Nothing that hit for under 150 a round would ever do damage to you. Sure it dosn't help on raids as much... even though it would still be godly on raids.... but talk about unbalancing in exp groups. I could tank some of those spiders in Velks indeffinatly.
Actually it WAS instaclick
# Dec 19 2001 at 10:02 AM Rating: Decent
Actually it WAS instaclick but if you look at the patch message for 12/18, they fixed it, so it now has a cast time. You're right, this would be horribly unbalancing as rune effects can have 1 point left on them, and you can be hit for 5000 points of damage and still take no actual damage, you just lose the effect. As long as you clicked this once per round of attack, you would be invulnerable.

Nonetheless this is still a godly item. 10 vs all, 10 int, 25 mana, +mana regen, +hp regen. If someone gives my necro one of these, I'll let you sacrifice me for 10 levels straight. :)
RE: Actually it WAS instaclick
# May 07 2002 at 1:10 PM Rating: Decent
Aye. It was. :p Also, you could get the stat bonus by holding this item on your cursor without actualy equiping it. They nerfed this too.

Edit: Sorry I dunno if I was clear. They fixed this by removing the held comonent of this item. Someone should post an updated picture soon.

# Jan 11 2002 at 11:02 AM Rating: Excellent
rune only sheilds up to the maximum of damage it could take. so if your rune still had 1 point left to it and you were hit for 5000 damage. you would still take the 4999 damage and of course be calling for that rez or getting a sow for the CR. i use the rune effect in Berserker Spirit Alot to save on those nasty resists or to protect the tanks when the cleric is casting a Cheal and they need extra hp to make it. but think about it. if 1point of a rune could sheild against x amount of damage, then why use the lvl 52 rune that costs 350 mana and a component that costs about 11pp a pop, when you could use your lvl 16 rune that costs 41 mana and uses a component that buys for 3gold?

# May 23 2002 at 2:24 PM Rating: Decent
Because you want one that will still be on you after 10 rounds of attack, not one that will only absorb the first hit.

I could be wrong, and maybe it used to be different, but we used to low-level rune a tank if he had to pull a SK mob so the harm touch was nullified, which it sure seemed to be.

That is a nice Range slot item. I believe it would be helpful for me and my evacs. I can see all the flames that follow saying how at the lvl needed to attain this I'd have INT maxed out (blah blah blah). OK, I'll get it for Saves...look! +10 all around. There we go. And Boon of Recovery...don't know what it does.
RE: wow!
# Dec 17 2001 at 11:58 PM Rating: Decent

Post-Luclin the "Mana Cap" for Int/Wis is 255... no longer just 200.

Just thought you'd like to know. :D
RE: wow!
# Dec 20 2001 at 5:12 PM Rating: Decent
Actually the soft cap is still 200 but now each point over 200 gives you 6 mana instead of just 1.

Is this thing for real? A range slot item with all that? What's HoD anyway?

RE: wow!
# Dec 17 2001 at 6:13 PM Rating: Decent
it is also listed as a held item, witch if im not mistaken, and i very well could be.
it gives you all its benifits just being in a general slot in your inventory
:) WOW also there is food items that when held in your inventory give bonus to stats, I found food that gives +2 to wis and a different one that gives +2 to str, in the bazzar on luclin
