was doing a search in bazaar for my mage... he needs a new earring, this is the most expensive earring on that list (95K) ... at first i was thinking the seller is out of his mind but then i looked closer and saw a zero after the three...

still not gonna buy it though, this is clearly an item for people who get hit far more often than I.

beng sold by Nacha in the Bazaar
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 10 2003 at 9:19 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) who in there right mind would pay more than 4k for this, and 4k is even stretching it, it sells for likr 60 to 100k on karana server, i see nothing about this earring thats worth more than 4k, 30 ac is worthless without other stats on this earring even to me and im a bard

I would wear this as a 65 rng when i am tanking either in BoT or an adventure. Splash out and throw a 40 hp aug on this and you have a really decent earring.
30 raw ac is good for any class that can use it. And the weight of 0.1 does make it appealing to monks, especially since chances are it will have more ac than most monk BP's at the level they are wearing it.
I dont see this being sold for 4k. Id snag it up if i saw it being sold for that. 10 more reasonable imo.

Although this earring does have is advantages...

You can not put a LDON purchaced HP aug into it. Many dropped augments, however, you could. But since the purchaced HP/Mana augs only go in Helm/BP/Legs/Feet/Arms and type 2s also go in Bracer/Hands you can't ever get one of those into an earring.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 23 2003 at 10:20 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) WTF this earring sucks complete a$$, why are you people paying 50k for this? jesus.... I dont get it

30 ac for an EARRING

think about it
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 27 2003 at 1:12 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) AC is one of the least important stats, it really doesnt do crap, parse it sometime. Oh Gee I got hit for 1499 instead of 1500. AC in EQ doenst do much, you overestimate it. This earring should be worth maybe a couple thousand.
nice for anyone

As a 56 shaman I would love to have this. Hopefully fellow shamans would think the same. I would love to see the magelo profile of a shaman that feels he has better earings or can bust 1200ac self buffed without this earing. I am currently trying to bust 1000ac self buffed.
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 24 2003 at 2:52 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) dude i would post that magelo link becuz to be level 56 and have that suck yof gear i would be too embarrassed to let people see it thats just mah Smiley: twocents .. cyaz
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 29 2003 at 4:04 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Stfu jiz(hah), his gear isn't even that bad. Hmmm now to look at your gear. First you're either ****** twink or ebayer that likes to buy plat so you could buy the dathor great hammer which isn't even good just costs a lot due to rarity/uniqueness. Then secondly you should be slapped for your crappy *** rings and earrings. For god's sake if you have at least FH boots and the hammer can you at least just get 6AC 65hp rings. I mean the +6str +6dex has had me laughing here as to how ridiculously bad it is. You need the str so you can do big hits right? Haha idiot. Now off to your earrings. Along with all your gear you obviously are trying to push sta which is good for a warrior well not that great at your lvl but eventually good but you're lacking AC on most of your pieces. Wolf fang earrings are crap considering even orc fang earrings are better and if you were smart you'd have 2AC 35hp/25mana with a solstice earring or something. I thought you had uber gear? No. Hmm what else? Hmmm well you're too cheap to buy a cloak of the maelstrom and the dragon bracer is worse then a crusty bracer considering you don't need the resists at your lvl. Not sure about the clock arms but seems just like a nice utility item to swap in or click from your inv just for the clicky haste otherwise its real weak, low AC no hp/sta on it. None of the weapons you have bagged or out are good for holding aggro because they rely on raw dps. Yeah there's other stuff too like the mask but I'm done for now. A little hint would be swap in some gear that has higher AC and raw hp if you're only in your 30's where you're only getting like 2-3hp per sta point. In conclusion stfu because you're either a low lvl plat buyer that hasn't experienced anything 55+ or you have a higher lvl character and you just did a crappy job at attempting to twink a warrior. Enjoy.

Bought this earring 50K last night.As a Ranger,I can now focus on HP gears instead of AC/HP both.With this,you can hit your class's AC soft cap easily without guild's help.Very good items I would say.Buy it if you see anyone is selling it,you wont be regret

Seeing this earring listed as 30 AC piqued my interest to say the least. As a shaman with not so great AC ( around 920 fully buffed and dropping wis/resists or 800 AC normally ), this earring is awesome. I mean when equipped itll be more like a 50 point increase in AC. This would be great when Im the only shaman on a raid and doing all the slows and get summoned by a level 55+ mob after a few fail to stick. Definately better than 35mana/hp and 0-3 AC / up to 3WIS earring that 90% of the average shamans are going to have equipped. Ive read below he can be done with one group? So a 50-56 group with a 55 shaman could take him? Does he have a PH? How often is the earring dropped? Is he Turgurs slowable or just PoI slowable? Please post Ill check back here in a few weeks...thx in advance.

who in their right mind would sell this for 4k? 40k i might believe

# Aug 07 2002 at 11:49 PM Rating: Default
is this guy trackable from the zoneline? (200 in tracking)

RE: trackable?
# Oct 08 2002 at 3:52 AM Rating: Decent
Festersore spawns in the same set of caves as swarmcaller. Note that there is a mob named festerspore as well. In any case, this guy is not hard at all. He should be trackable from zone, since the Netherbian Swarmcaller is, though I've never seen him up on track, except for when he spawns on top of us during a tawro/swarmcaller kill. Its not a bad earring. Still wearing it.

Would be nice for a ranger too, seeing as how they get screwed majorly on AC items. Anyone agree? Anyone? Hello...?
#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 08 2002 at 5:15 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Would rather have HP myself :)
RE: .
# Jul 24 2002 at 8:38 PM Rating: Default
Maybe it really depends on how you are playing your ranger. I'm going to box a ranger/druid/enchanter simply because it sounds fun. Is HP really going to help me when I don't have CHeal?
However the only way I'll be seeing this is if I can somehow manage to convice someone to sell it to me. And I don't wanna hear lectures about it not being sellable because it is... Anything droppable can be sold, the question is how high do I gotta go.

RE: .
# Jun 26 2002 at 12:05 PM Rating: Default
totally agree, would be nice on a lot of other classes to.
#REDACTED, Posted: May 16 2002 at 8:30 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hmm, 8500pp for this? whos sellin it? I wanna buy it andresell it for 850,000pp and make some profit. Im poor.

This is a SWEET Tank earring!!! but it is also a SWEET Monk Earring as well. Tanks need ac that is a proven fact! heck they give up alot of AC when resist gear is needed. But so does you trusty puller. He/She also gives up alot of HP/AC when resist gear is needed and the fact they tend to get beat on when NOT around someone who can heal brings then viable into the picture of using this item.
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 09 2002 at 12:23 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) SHUT UP ALL YOU STUPID MONKS!! I am soooooo tierd of all the stupid monks getting on here and thinking that everything should be there's.

Wow! this is one badass earing. If this earing didn't go to a tank in the rare occurace that it dropped, i think i'd cry. It's got more AC than most people's breastplates. Think about how well your ear will be protected.

BTW- If anyone on Terris Thule has this item, I'd be more than willing to trade you my left nut for it.... maybe even the right one.

well, considering you really only need one nut to function properly, i can definitely see trading one for this earring. however, in most males the lefty is the dominant and most important.... give up the righty first my man. :)

Every char would want this, and can't wait to see it drop. Attended a few raids in UP already, don't think I have enough points to actually get this, but still 30 ac, is more than the ac in my greaves as a ranger. And as item ac translates to more ac, ie 30 ac x 1.5, about 45 added ac for me.
This is crap in my opinion.

In the end game it's all about HP and resists. This has neither. 2 years ago Verant would never release an earring like this, but as players prove again and again that AC give diminishing returns at certain levels, you'll start seeing more and more items like this that would have been at one time AWESOME! /sigh

This is a MT/MA/SA earring, really, so I have to agree somewhat.

It's usefulness is somewhat diminished by other earrings available, but isn't worthless- by virtue that it is tradable, and it will be quite effective for players who are grinding on blues-yellows for a/xp.

There is one major advantage to this earring that you might not be looking at.

Often times a tank will have to sacrafice AC for resists. With this item you could (providing you have the resist gear) juggle equipment for resists and still manage to maintain an effective AC.

Also with the "average" persons equipment 30AC is more than most peoples BP. Just a little to take into consideration

RE: This is crap in my opinion.
# Mar 26 2002 at 6:34 PM Rating: Decent
Actually my opinion on this doesn't count but here it is. With this earring, you can afford to give up AC on other armor for resist/hps and with the earring only taking one slot yet adding back a ton of AC, you are all the more evened with AC and have better resist.

Any ideas what drops this? Is it just a random drop, as a lot of the new drops are in Luclin, or is there something in particular I should we should be whacking?

I can assure you it's not a hoax, I submitted this screen shot. As for assurance to that effect...I can't show you the line of code that labels this item, but my good friend Nastradamus, 60 pal got this and perhaps he will run magelo and put it on his profile.
