How they pop
# Oct 17 2004 at 7:27 AM Rating: Decent
I dont see that anyone had mentioned this, but these guys are only up if you kill the mobs at the star entrance,"a swirlspine seahorse".
These pop when those mobs die (one per mob) and despawn when the mobs up top respawn.
Can thesse CH?

Can you Pacify these guys ? Could make a Pally's life easier.

I dunno about pally pacify, but enchanter pacification worked a few hours ago. Of course, then, don't kill phinny right over the big star, or sure enough, his corpse drops right down next to em. :)

Just picked this up in the Bazaar for 800pp. I wasn't sure if I got a good price, after reading the posts, I think I did. It makes a noticeable difference with attacks.

Good Luck and Safe Travels.

You should work on the assumption that at least one will see invisibility. Had three people die in this room when Phinny was down trying to get a Paladin his quest piece. Each when in at different times and the first two said that invis fell. Me being the third I give it another shot and learn firsthand that they didn't lose invis at all. One of these clearly saw through it and killed me fast. We're figuring the best way to get corpses when POOF Phinny spawn right on top of them. Necro time.

Why does the description of the Swirlspine Belt say the level to get is 40 when clearly people have posted these are at least 51?
See inviz?
# Apr 08 2002 at 12:09 PM Rating: Default

Does someone know, for sure, if they see inviz? (someone who SEE that they dont see inviz, not someone who heard that they dont :) )

Tks for answered.

There is almost always at least 1 that can see invis. Some see invis and some don't.

#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 25 2002 at 8:34 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) An Fbss has dropped down to as low as 2-3k now on my server and i don't know the exact price on the swirl spine belt but i have heard that it runs at about 3kih.

#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 02 2001 at 3:07 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) if u are on bertoxxulus server ill trade a fbss and a mithril BP for one of these.
#Anonymous, Posted: May 08 2001 at 1:21 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Guildie gave my 13 warrior one of the belts. Got a FBSS now. Had to camp it.. ended up just looting it after the damnded thing was ninj'd 4 times in a night... so 5th time it was 3 monks (had FBSS) and 1 cleric (was for xp only) and a shaman ( admitted i got first take ) and me. Didnt want the cleric or shaman to "change there mind" so i looted and chigged that gate potion.
RE: Guildie

I can understand why you ninja looted it, if you can call it that. You had the thing ninja'd from you 4 times already (incredible drop rate - how long had you been there?), and it was promised to you so I can understand why you would just loot it.

But just looting it like that and gating, man, you are stupid for that one. As a warrior, you're the main tank. As the only warrior just up and gating after you ninja this, that's LOW, because now the cleric and shaman have to rely on monks, who have no taunt besides hitting fast, to keep the mobs off them.

I'm half expecting and very much hoping that you're lying though. 5 FBSS's in a night is unheard of, unless you were there for like 20 hours or something (but I've camped the damn frenzy for 5 days game time never seen an FBSS drop, grrr)
RE: Guildie
# Mar 03 2002 at 12:35 AM Rating: Default
ninjin loot and leave group behind and gate alone is a very selfish unacceptble action in all sense
RE: Guildie
# Jan 16 2002 at 9:29 AM Rating: Default
I camped the Frenzy 1 night and saw the fbss drop 5 times in 8 spawns, then next day it didn't drop whole the whole day...its random luck
RE: Guildie
# Feb 17 2002 at 3:58 AM Rating: Default
i have on two different occasions camped the fbss for 18 hours straight without seeing the goddamn thing drop. Needless to say i no longer try to camp the frenzy:).
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 09 2002 at 1:32 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) To be honest the FBSS sucks alot. Fer the time it takes to camp the frenzy an how rare that thing drops u are jus better off being in RM fighting HG's fer 18 hours do the math if u get 150pp an hour that would be 2700pp that can buy u a fbss lol. But the only thing makin me a bit nervous is they seem to hav nerfed the drop rate on the FBSS. I camp frenzy one night from 9 mine time to 6in the morning well the frenzy poped 3 times no drop. It was sad. But hell i have a velium swiftblade in hand ya the dmg/dly raito sucks but drop an LSoEE in main hand *(they say 36% some say 40% who knows) an a velium swiftblade u have a 16/23ish with dmg from amggi on lsoee it is more like a 21/23 an awesome ratio. But anywho it kicks the $hit out of SCHW's i know since i had those aswell. I also had a FBSS and schw's are faster then the FBSS. Fer some reason though prices in Bazaar have also been strange.

#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 30 2001 at 12:33 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I have been auctioning couple days to try to buy one of these for my 34 paladin, as I am a non-twink and will probably never be able to afford a fbss...I received a tell from someone that the swirlspine belt no longer drops...Is this true?...I am on the tholuxe p server if anyone has one of these and wants to sell.

There are 4 completely MR swirlspine seahorses at the top star formation in phinigel's lair, at 55 I was able to single pull them with tactics(inch towards them, wait for one to aggro and keep them on you the entire way back) Kill those one by one by mana sieving them to block their CHeal......the guardians are not MR and thus are extremely easy to mezz(they come on the pull with phinigel, usually only 1-2 but I've seen as many as 4)
RE: how to kill these

So you could harmony them each and then pull one out?

Right, Harmony won't work in this zone. You could try a Lull type spell though.

Yes they Summon
# Jan 24 2001 at 6:27 AM Rating: Default
These Guys are above 50. I was on a raid tonite and was summoned 3 times by this Sea Monster.

I cannot give an exact level as they are red to me.

Well with the advent of Luclin, not everything has to be lvl 50 to summon. at 42 a green mob con summuned me after i attacked it out of stupid curiousity. other named mobs that aren't lvl 50 can summon too. So they seem to be changing the "rules" for mobs
# Oct 30 2000 at 12:58 PM Rating: Default
I'm pretty sure they're level 51, because I'm almost sure they've summoned before.
SS belt
# May 19 2000 at 7:48 PM Rating: Decent
the SS belt is a VERY rare drop
RE: SS belt
# Jan 11 2001 at 5:41 AM Rating: Default
Ac 4 haste. I heard the haste on this belt is lower then the FBSS but it has ac. The belt is hard to get and its not as good as the fbss *sigh*
RE: SS belt
# Oct 28 2002 at 9:47 AM Rating: Decent
I had an fbss, the 0 ac really started to bother me for the warrior I play. So it came down to 5%more haste or 4 ac. I went with the 4 AC and I don't regret my descision. Can't really tell the difference in haste when it's worn anyway.

Casters Realm says this belt is 16% haste and FBSS is 21% haste

castersrealm.com also says silver chitin hand wraps on 30% haste. . .
