Just in case any else is like me and is farming old world mobs for the fun clicky things, this thing does still drop...just mentioning it b/c of some posts below. I just got one today (1-21-08).

Also, as shared under the mob itself, this guy is a joke...lots of hp's but doesn't hit hard or fast...I think in the range of 100-400 per hit.

Can anyone confirm that this is still on his loot table? I've killed this guy 12 times, and never seen this drop...
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 09 2004 at 12:11 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ok, another kill on this guy and no talisman drop. No reply to my post. I'm guessing that this is no longer on his loot table, since the awesomeness of the drop compared to the difficulty of the mob is way unbalanced. I could be, and hope I am, wrong though...

He still drops it... though I have yet to win one after over a dozen kills... oh well, he's gonna keep dying till I do :) He's so easy to get to and kill, he's one of the best farm mobs around.
Best drop off the EB imho

This is IMO the best drop off the Evolved Burrower. Good stats, hp/mana AND resists... plus that nifty little 2mana/tick clicky buff that stacks with ALL other mana regen buffs, making it effectively like FT2, except this takes up a buff slot, which usually is not a problem though.
RE: Best drop off the EB imho
# Dec 22 2003 at 2:19 PM Rating: Decent
Actually, its better than FT2 because clicky effects do not run into the 15 mana/tick cap that worn mana regen runs into.

Mithril Heart Brigade on Tribunal Server - Dropped this mob yesterday and finnally after over a year of killing him he spit out this drop.

This is a rare item on the Burrower's loot table and yes it does indeed stack over the FT15 and MC3 mana regen's..... Even better unlike some of the item MANA regen's it doesn't not go POOF when a Shaman hits CANNI 5 button.

yes as of a few patches ago this will stack with potg/c. Which makes it a much better item to have.

Tonight's patch which is undergoing just 25 minutes ago will change this. Lunar Whispers will begin stacking - intentionally - with BAoTR and POTG/C. weeeeeeee~
Help me Please
# Jul 16 2002 at 8:14 PM Rating: Decent
BAoTR is 6mana per tik yet this item is = to Clarity 2 from what you say. So when I am buffing which do i choose LunarWispers or BAoTR because they do not stack which they should imo =/

I just got this today, drops off a mob called the Restless Burrower in Acryila Caverns Easy to get too, and doable buy 2 groups of well equiped 60's if your good. Should have checked here before looting it as since it doesn't stack with BAoR its effect is kinda useless to a cleric or druid *doesn't stack with PoTG either* but still a very nice neck item

But PotG does not stack with Aego, so if I am raiding/grping and have that this spell would still stack. Also my other forms of regen don't work inside where this would as a druid.

Also if you use the format on EQDruids for rating items this would rate at 336pts or to make it easier, right at the top of what is listed there now. I know I am happy to have one.

Judging by the stats, I'd hardly call it useless ;)

# Aug 02 2002 at 10:25 AM Rating: Decent
This is a VERY nice neck item..nice stats) Who cares if the effect doesn't stack. As a cleric more saves and ac is a must(including wis as well). Shoot i'd trade my lame neck item for ne of these any day.

Spell: Lunar Whispers: 4: Increase Mana by 2 per tick, Mana: 0, Classes: None, Skill: Alteration, Casting: 2.5, Recast: 0, Target: Self, Duration: 27.0 mins,
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 11 2002 at 11:22 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You guys are missing what it does entirely. It isn't a mana regen buff like c2 etc. It adds to your total mana pool like GOB.
Stacking Issues
# Feb 11 2002 at 9:30 AM Rating: Decent
Lunar Whispers does not stack with Blessed Armor of the Risen. I suspect it does not stack with Protection of the Glades.

I really hope this is a stacking problem, and its fixed in the future. If not, this item will be far more valuable to shaman, who will be the only class that can make use of effect.

PoTG doesnt stack with BAotR so i think that this mana regen spell prolly sould stack with PoTG because most mana regen type spells like PoG dont stack with BAotR anyways
Info on Mob and item
# Feb 09 2002 at 5:19 PM Rating: Default
I am the one who posted this item to Allakhazam's Site sent it in a Few days ago. Here is the CORRECT info

Mobs Name: The Borrower Beast
Level: 63
Type: Warrior

He is up usualy every day all day long and no one kills him Becuase they cant. He is not targetable until he grows to Full size ( takes about a Week ) When he reaches full size he Can be targeted and Killed.

The effect on the Item gives you 2 more mana per level. So if you are level 60 you would get a 120 mana Bonus for 270 Ticks about 25 mins. If you have any Questions about this mob./ spawn Get on The Nameless server and Contact Sedius 60 Oracle. I will be moving to legends soon tho. Thank you and I HOpe this info helps. Sedius
what dropped it?
# Feb 09 2002 at 2:05 PM Rating: Default
Did a specific mob drop it or was it random?

Any information that would be most useful.
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 09 2002 at 3:22 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) OMG!!!!! 2 more mana! HOLY SHEET METAL THAT IS SO UBER....
RE: OMG!!!
# Feb 09 2002 at 5:08 AM Rating: Default
No, it's just an extra 2 points of mana every tick. It most likely stacks with clarity, flowing thought, and all the other mana regen buffs, which is great.

RE: OMG!!!
# Feb 09 2002 at 8:43 AM Rating: Decent
270 ticks / 27 minutes = 10 ticks a minute (the same as Clarity I believe). This is somewhat significant. Flowing Thought II equivalence, just not permanent.

ticks and regen
# Feb 09 2002 at 9:53 AM Rating: Excellent
Just wanted to clear something up.
A tick is the minimum time span recognized by the game, the length or a "turn" if you will. Each tick your HP and mana rise or fall (depending on what spells are cast on you and if you are or not meditating). By definition a tick is a tenth of a minute, or six seconds.
270 ticks is 27 minutes, and what this spell does is add 2 to the mana you gain or lose every tick during that time interval. This is similar to the enchanter spell breeze, or flowing thought II.
Good luck getting it, stats and effect are very nice for anyone who can use
RE: ticks and regen
# Feb 09 2002 at 12:00 PM Rating: Default
i just wanted to point out that a tick is definitely not the minimum timespan in the game and your hp can rise or fall in a period of much less then 6 seconds if you are being attacked or healed
RE: ticks and regen
# Feb 10 2002 at 11:54 AM Rating: Excellent
Getting kinda technical here, but that 6 second time period is really irrelevant, i'll explain why. consider damage/healing over time spells, and imagine the ammount of bandwidth they would occupy if the server and your computer were constantly sending information back and forth about the EXACT amount of health you/the mob have at that moment. Instead, Verant intelligently (dont go in to shock by me saying they did something smart) assigned a 6 second interval, every 6 seconds the server and your computer exchange information about most information, including your location and the health of the mobs and players. Otherwise you would have everyone in the vicintiy going LD every couple of minutes because of the ammount of data from regens and DoTs being transmitted

RE: ticks and regen
# Feb 12 2002 at 10:39 PM Rating: Decent
Yeah, but the six seconds does matter in cases such as medding. If at the beginning of one tick you're sitting down medding, stand, and sit down before the next tick it will be treated as if you were medding the whole time. It won't consider the seconds you were standing up. So the six second time period IS relevant, some things are not calculated between ticks and sent to the server but are calculated at the beginning/end of each six seconds.
