dont forget how OLD this item is, back in the day, and i mean 4? years ago now when kunark was released, it was like having jesus on your wrist for shammys but obviously times have changed, its good for mid level shammys that literally just got over the hump so they can click it, but only for a few levels would it be usful
# Nov 28 2004 at 9:51 PM Rating: Decent
i can see these being handy for finishing off a solo mob w\o losing mana and hps. imo
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 30 2004 at 5:53 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) EEEERRRRRRRRRRRR WRONG guess again dumbass! these aint clickyable until 45 =)
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 07 2004 at 6:48 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) If a newbie got his hands on this, he is in destructible till 20 or so =) Boom! Winters Roar!
Just one problem

These aren't clickable until 45.

Try again.

Ever since they nerfed the sit down casting after clicking its not worth it. You could do more useful things in 8 secs, but to stand there and wait for 250dd to hit.

ya see i dont have one of these and i dont think it is nesessary BUT,,, haveing a dd that is manna free could be real nice while soloing no matter how ya look at it ..i have based my equipment on manna regen and health regen for canni and i do extreamlly well no matter what role i play but again i think this item would be sweet as all hell...when i find i am full manna most of the time if i am not healer its good to be able to stay that way like you all said for slowes and back up heal so i feel i gonna have to try to get 1 i would like to be able to at least nuke and stay full manna for when i am really needed....and still be able to shoot hehe fun fun

Glad to see SOE added the gimp frogs to the list of equippable races but STILL left out Ikkys. And no matter how you slice it a SLIGHT advantage in AC doesn't even come close to outweighing the advantages of an unlimited mana free 263 DD, especially through hump lvls of 45 - low 50's.

Either add Ikkys or give them a comparable item to offset the advantages of this item. SOE is always talking about balance well lets see some of it cause I can't think of an Ikky Shaman only item that is comparable to this.

boohoo. please don't cry over your improved regen and high natural mana (Wis)and infravision.

so unfair.... well kinda is with the extra xp it takes.

lvl for the effect?

what lvl does this item start working?
i doubt it works at lvl 1 but any 1 got specific level info on when u can start using the trigger effect?

RE: lvl for the effect?
# Apr 03 2003 at 10:37 AM Rating: Good
It procs at lvl 45
RE: lvl for the effect?
# Apr 24 2003 at 4:02 PM Rating: Decent
Just to clarify-this is NOT a proc. It is a clickable effect. Procs are effects that go off randomly when a weapon is used in combat. A clickable effect is, well, just that, and effect that goes off when you right click the item. This kind of information tends to get the newer players really confused.
#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 08 2004 at 4:19 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) A "proc", Process, is for both, some are Combat - Auto, some are Triggered

Exactly how was it nerfed? looks like they only added frogloks to the races able to wear it.....
# Feb 18 2003 at 1:29 PM Rating: Decent
I have a 59 shammy. He just got a JBB and I plan to try it out on the planes mobs. One thing to note. Winter's Roar only does 263 dmg and is low agro on PoP mobs.. Since most peeps are running with level 55+ buffs and KEI or better. Chain casting the JBB is mearly a way for a shammy to assist the tanks to take the mob down faster with no mana loss.

If I need mana, I can canni 4 mana in nothing flat. I use the lower level frost spells like WR since my mana pool remains so high. I think it will make a difference under many circumstances.

Testing is the only way to know for sure..

Deady with a horse
# Feb 05 2003 at 10:03 PM Rating: Good
With standing meditation on a horse, don't waste that medding downtime, med AND cast this nuke at the same time! Not sure if this works but i can see why its worth so much if you can cast and med at the same time with this and a horse.

What would be cool is if you could click the bracer while running ; )
# Feb 01 2003 at 8:26 AM Rating: Decent
Is this item clickable still or has it been changed to random as the info says.

It is still clickable, only weapons can have random effects ( procs ). The JBB is 8.0 sec cast 0.0 recast time 263 DD cold based nuke, unlimited charges.

Well, let me just say that this item is absolutely the best shammy treat in the game. I have had mine since lvl 45 and I am 58 now...It has saved me so much time, effort and mana. Like anything else, you just have to know how/when to use it. I would never use it in a raid nor seldom if ever in a I am far more valuable as a buffer, de-buffer/backup healer.(Besides, I need the slot for resist gear) But in those times when I need to solo to get xp...or just feel like being alone, tis is a wonderous thing to have! I just bring up my puppy, let him engage a debuffed mob...then happily blast away! Hardly any down time. Worth the plat? YEP

You do not need to unequip this to get one more slot of resist gear. Losing 14 AC ( more like 20 modified ) and the right click effect isnt worth putting on a BD bracer IMO. You can get to 120+ points in all 5 resists fairly easily without spending more than 2kpp per piece of gear. I just completed my resist gear shopping spree with only 7kpp, and I manage to get as high as 175 FR 150 MR 140 CR 130 PR and DR BEFORE buffing. You will almost never need more resists than that outside of a high end raid, usually 100-120 resists are enuff. With bard songs and group resist buff 120 resist becomes more like 200-250 anyway, so keep your JBB equipped. After you slow a mob you really should be saving mana for the next one, so you can get in some damage on the mob with this mana free.

#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 18 2002 at 7:32 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I saw someone try to peddle this off in the Bazaar for 50k. When I looked at the stats, I wondered why. Came here and see that the max price listed is 29k....still way too much for this thing if you ask me. The only advantages I see are the effect and AC...definatly not worth 50k. 10k seems steep to me as well, but it's alot more reasonable than 50.
RE: way too much for this
# Mar 05 2003 at 10:19 AM Rating: Decent
I usually see this selling in bazaar for 14-15k now, when I originally played (pre-luclin) I bought it for 24k, but now I'm restarting a shammy, so I can't wait to get high enough to use it again. Ohh how I miss the days of clicking the epic and the bracer.

This thing IS only the effect and AC.
Heh, and it's non-Iksar too boot.

Then it can't be any good, now can it.=)
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 01 2002 at 7:31 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I believe creating items that some classes cannot do without was a mistake by verant. Abilities, not items, define classes. Actually kunark has a slew of items like this, like the burnt wooden staff (not sure if that is the right name) for mages or the luminescent staff for druids.
RE: Items
# Nov 11 2002 at 1:56 PM Rating: Decent
You're totally mixed up here.

Verant did not make any items that a class cannot do without. The mindless lemming-type Shaman who simply does as "everyone else" does is the one who creates this silly perception.

The "essential" nature of the JBB is purely subjective, created and fostered by Shaman without imagination.

Players have created the moronic illusion that every Shaman needs a JBB, not Verant.

The same can be said about every example you have cited, among the corresponding classes.

My lvl 54 Shaman never had a JBB, and shockingly was still able to progress, fight, and contribute to a team. I can cast an Ice nuke about 4x stronger than the JBB. Frankly, I'd rather meditate with the time I would have spent casting with this item (it's not a quick cast).

The Shaman is one of the more complex classes, we have lots of diffent abilities and our role varies depending on who we are grouped with. Sprinkling the MoB with snowflakes when you should be slowing it instead is not wise. Use your imagination, adapt to your circumstances. Try fighting Ice Gaints with a JBB, and you'll suddenly realize you may have negelected learning other strategies.

The JBB is a favorite for lvl 45-50 Shamen who like to solo. I don't like soloing, I think as a Shaman I am MUCH more effective in a group, and I really don't like the idea of lvl 45 Shamen depending on an item that drops in a lvl 55-60 dungeon. Like a lot of dropped items, by the time you can actually get it by hunting, you don't need it anymore.
RE: /agree
# Feb 26 2003 at 1:04 PM Rating: Excellent
I am a 58 level shaman with a horse and the JBB so I med and pound on mobs with the bracer at the same time. I have yet to find a group that after slowing the mob and any other chores needed mind my putting an additional 1-2k or more damage on the mob. After most fights I am at or near full mana and have done more than just slow and med. Believe me a horse and the JBB are two of the greatest goodies we can buy.
RE: /agree
# Apr 13 2003 at 4:45 AM Rating: Default
With a mount horse/dino this item is god item
for shammies. I dont use this item when i solo
really because nuking breaks root too much. I
just through some dots on an let doggy go to
work. In groups, this item owns, you can chain
nuke from your mount while you mending up from
slows ,buffing or heal. PoP mobs usally take 2 mins or so to kill, so i right click about
13-15 times doing around 3945hp of damage without mana cost per each mob. Unless there
is a wizzy/mage in your group, you will outdamage
everyone else(individually) in your party. But your wizzy/mages got med every other mob , you dont, just keep firing. The is the best item a shammy can make use of, even more so than the shammie epic. And you can use it till 65th lvl.

# Oct 06 2002 at 12:54 PM Rating: Decent
Can this camp be soloed? 60 shaman,epic,torpor and the needed buff like aego and kei.i dont think it worth buying this item at lvl 60, this camp would be awesome loot if i can solo it and kill the 4 PH and the roamer in the like 27 min of seb respawn.

I get a kick out of the posts on various items why can't i use this or i deserve that. If all race/class combos could use everything we would all be the same or pretty damn close. The variation in this game is what addicts me.

So we lizards have yet another challange to overcome. OK, so you won't get the exact same effect but you can make evoction your primary specialization and get a mana preservation item. Obviously not quite as efficient but this effect is that important, this better than nuthin.

I like playing Iksar shammy, we have some unique abilities and good starting stats. Sure i cried for a few seconds when i couldn't find Iksar in the race list (that erudite shammy sure will like it) but i'll just find another item or technique that will get all those barbs (sam) saying i wish i made an iksar.
Can Iksar's Click?
# Oct 04 2002 at 10:01 AM Rating: Decent
Their are Posts going up and down the entire forum about how an iksar cant wear these, but my friend said iksars could still click em from inventory. Is this true? or is he full of ****? Can any Iksar Shammys testify to having clicked any JB items?

Of course, Human, Erudite, Wood Elf, Dark Elf, Half Elf, Dwarf, Halfling and Gnome Shamen can equip this.

I mean, if there WERE such a thing...

Sorry for the pricing data thing. I only hit the button once, I SWEAR.

I paid 25k on Morrell Thule for one. My shaman is 47 and it does 263 dmg on Spirocs in TD. Because of the casting time I'm seriously thinking of buying a horse so I can regain mana while casting.
Price on AB and meditating
# Sep 19 2002 at 9:26 AM Rating: Decent
These going around 40K on Antonius Bayle
And for 10K on Luclin Server
Casting time is 8sec, so you miss a full tick of meditateing, unles you buy a horse that is 10K, you can chain cast with JBB, and your mana is going up just like you sit on your *** and you avoiid aggro by sitting on the ground.
To obtain full benefit buy a horse+JBB

Heck you don't even have to buy the horse.. just do part of the newbie quest in Befallen (get item with one charge of horse). Wish I could afford this, but don't have the time to wait for good camps (by the time I get the camp I would have to log)). Saving my money for An Amulet of Insight.. sigh.. the only item we shammys get with extended duration of buffs at lvl 3 and it drops off the a velious dorf..
