Roaring Idol
# Sep 11 2003 at 4:21 PM Rating: Decent
Camped Shadow Island a few nights in a row farming Swirling Shadows. There are indeed about a dozen named shadows that spawn here, and have seen many over and over like Groaning and Dark. I have only seen the Vicious 1 time in a good 4 nights of farming. I usually spend 3 hours per night there when farming, so I guess you could hope to see the Vicious once every 12 hours or so. I cant say if hes a triggered event or if other nameds are PH for him. Also got a Groaning Mace, and a Darkedged 2-Hander along with the Roaring Idol. I cant remember if I've seen a Diseased yet. Anyway, I have one of these Idols on the Tribunal Server if anyone needs, ST and we can work something out.

I bought these claws in the bazaar for 3K. Not to shabby a deal compared to what I see availible for H2H on my server. Zekhas' Katar sells for 8-10K with similar stats. Anything better sells for 20K+ except for sheet metal Ulak's which are reasonable but not a good choice if you are under 45th level or so. BL H2H are outragously priced in my opinion. 4 times the cost of what a similar weapon would run for my Ranger.

Once you hit the mid/upper 30's, a Fist of Rock or Bear Fang Gloves (7/18 with bonuses on both) would be better than this. This is not a bad weapon, but it is a tad slow for a primary weapon. Once that damage bonus starts hitting 5 or 6 (level 40/43) this weapon definately loses most of its appeal IMO.

I have killed or seen someone in my group kill litterally every named shadow (either 14 or 15 named - have list at home) save this one! I have been in twilight sea for over a week and half. To give you an idea of the time spent per day on Friday (4:15pm - 5:30ish) and Saturday (2pm est - 4am) and never once seen this damn shadow pop. I have now parked a ranger (from GF's account) in that zone to track) Just so I can get out of there for a bit was going mad! There is something seriously wrong with this quest if it takes more than 12hrs to get a piece for it. This is a quest - not a piece for the EPIC!

Oh yeah - any class at any level can get this quest. You do not have to be a BST to get the quest. A ranger was selling a Feral Claw for 12k. He said he did the quest thinking it was a 1HS weapon. He has been trying to sell it for a couple months.

The claws are nice for it'd be onyl a novelty item... Considering im twinked enough BUT just to say oh yah i got that i've been playing with doing them what i have come to conclud is the Raoring idol ... not worth the effort to get it Why u ask?
1. Viscous Shadw is Rare pop it seems
2. 54 monk and 56 Druid and we still were getting pretty beat up by shadows. ( druid died 3 times )
3. Have u EVER seen anyone camping these things for exp besides the lone druid?
4. Do groups 40+ want to camp shadows all day for this ? NO
So i pretty much gave it up not worth my effort but Grats to whoever wanders in and kills the guy first 5 minutes /sigh
Hazzy :)
Got the roaring idol

Camped the shadows solo by pulling to nearest zone edge/shoreline. Got the frenzied....easy. Got the groaning.....easy. Got the vicious....he killed my pet and whupped me most of the way to Katta. Medded and healed and buffed a new pet (I am level 50 Beastlord) and tried a different tactic and got the same treatment. Anyway, waved down a passing level 50 Druid and he healed me and my pet through the sucessful completion of this kill.

The hard spawn to force is the Diseased shadow that my wiz friend needs. I have never seen him.

I agree that the zone is way underutilized and that when I am there, I am usually all alone except the odd traveller heading to Katta or Scarlet.

Hmm, it is a rare spawn but I do not see how you had trouble at levels 54 and 56. They do HT, but I was able to clear the island as a 50 mage, and I do not have the uber equipment that most seem to have. People camp stuff for hours as it is, so why is this different? I think that if you are not part of one of these elitist guilds then this is a nice place to hang out, enjoy the conversation and maybe get some alright loot and quest items. You do not need to be level 50 as I was, or 54 and 56 as they were. A good group with sound tactics can pull this island and get exp.

I pulled the ugly shadow to the elemental island and killed it. Easy. No reason to fight it on the island with 50 adds....

Anyway, every time I saw a named shadow up, I pulled it to the elemental island and killed it. Got the Idol from this guy yesterday. Guess ill sell it for MQ.

If you need it and your on Bertox server, send me a tell.
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 01 2002 at 9:33 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I would like to buy a Pair of these! Send a tell if you have one for sale....paying 1.5kpp but can go higher if needed! I WANT A PAIR of these!

This is the best BST weapon before you can go to the planes or go to a lvl 50+ zone for drops. I really can't stand people who have lvl 60 characters that just want to go camp the UBER loots to twink their BST and come here and say it sucks in comparison to what they can go get. Go ahead and get your PHAT L3WTZ, with your L33T butt buddies, don't come here to just to bash on it because you can get better....
very decent actually
# Jan 28 2002 at 3:28 AM Rating: Good
Sure, this isnt as good ratio wise as a lot of weapons out there, but, dont look it over so fast, its got a very decent ratio for the level for a non twink/pre-planar. yes,i do realize that it does take a lot of work to do some of these things, but when Ros armor and the like for the other classes can be easially attained at lvl 30 nowadays with easy, putting something a little better up there pre plane is a definite step in the right direction IMHO. and also, this hits on some decent stats for the BL class STR DEX WIS HP and MANA, i mean, really, you cant go wrong there, so for whoever managed to get this and for whoevers useing it, I hope you enjoy and appreciate what it can do :)
If only it was off hand

Make this off-hand and its decent. As it is not worth the trouble.

While not horrible, this weapon >would< be a much better offhand weapon than primary. The twilight quests do seem disappointing for the rewards, although I guess since they are simple drops vs long and involved questing, you get what you work for. As long as you are hunting in these areas, they are a nice bonus, but are not worth going out of the way for IMO.

Once you get to the point where you could legitimately do this quest, because of the bonus damage (around 6 or 7) you are better off with something like a Fist of Rock or the Bear Fang Gloves (both 7/18 with odd bonuses).

Not a horrible quest reward for the level, but it would definately be better if you could offhand it.

ugh i hate posts like this. god forbid any weapon be given to only one class.

monks have weapons beastlords cant use, beastlords have weapons monks cant use, sounds fair to me.
RE: Gay not monk
# Mar 25 2002 at 10:43 AM Rating: Good
Not to say I disagree with you, but a lot of the Monk only weapons were changed to allow Beastlords to use after Luclin was released. Now, the Monk only weapons are much more rare, and sometimes not worth the trouble.

OOH OOHH!! I want for me beastie! hehe
