First trap, from top to bottom at the start of the second run. Doesn't get easier than that.
NO MANA ?!?!?!

Well i know i am out of date since i haven't played in a bit. But i looted the Fabled Ball of Golem Clay with my warrior. I was nuts! finally i don't have to worry about snaring or call ... too much ... ( yes yes yes i know they all get resisted to some point if not immuned to change in run speed.} Anyway .. long story short. the Snare buff only lasted for 5 minutes or something like that , I don't remember. well that was my first disappointment since you could not recast it for 30 minutes. oh well no big deal i thought .. when i got the no mana message ... MY HEAD EXPLODED !!!! I am planing on coming back to EQ soon. and would like to know if the mana thing was solved ? did a few petitions on that matter. any confirmation would be nice one way or the other, thanks.

Thanks to the changes made in equipment restrictions, you can equip the item at any level and click the effect. Since there are no stats, and it's ammo only, my 71 monk is a very happy man, and I've researched the effects.

Effect number 1: Illusion: Earth Elemental
Effect number 2: Earth Elemental's Form, which lets you spam-proc Earthen Mud.

I noticed an odd thing, however. When I would proc Earthen Mud, the proc would not actually occur, and instead I would be informed that I was out of mana. I will be bug reporting this in game, since that makes the item somewhat less useful for anyone without a mana bar (like, say, a warrior).

EDIT: As of the 4/7/2009 patch, the issue with this proc has been resolved, and should now proc normally. I will be testing this on my monk shortly, who does not meet the level requirements.

illusion time is to short

fabled illusion last 9 minutes---regular ball of clay illusion 54 min--kind of a rip off to give shuch a short time on the illusion with a 30 min recast

Read Aegishopi's post directly below. This item triggers TWO effect buffs:

1) 54 min normal illusion (Earthen Elemental)
2) ~8 min FABLED illusion effect which grants a ~3 min melee proc (75% snare), and 5% melee damage mitigation up to nearly 85,000 HP (does not stack with certain proc-generating buffs)

The 30 min recast timer is due to the power of effect #2 which makes perfect sense. The dmg. mitigation effect will either fall after the 8+ min are up or after you have taken about 85,000 HP damage (limited to %5 total of each hit). One of the devs responded to requests to make the recast quicker with a resounding "no" which also makes sense to me based on the power of this effect.

I am fairly certain you can click OFF the normal illusion and retain the FABLED effect (dmg mitigation) if desired.

In addition to the standard Illusion: Earth Elemental, it also has this effect, with an 8 min? duration.

Dropped by: "Fabled A Korascian Warlord", yellow-con at 82.

The fabled spawns off trap mobs, same as the non-fabled Warlord. For me, 3/3 Fabled Warlords spawned near the corner of the pyramid (fartherst North trap). Not too tough 3box: pal/zerkbot/shambot + cleric merc.

Flurries. Casts <Fabled Acid Jet> often.

Min hit: 502, Max: 3198.
82 Pal, 4100ac, 35% shielding.

The fabled is suppose to have a second buff that comes with the illusion, but its currently bugged and only gives the illusion earth elemental, so currently its just like normal ball of clay only a 30min recast.

The Snare proc portion is bugged, causeing only players with mana to be able to proc it, yet not stick to anything. The mitigation is working as it should.
