A note on the faded pages on these holgresh. It can only be 1 of 3 types. Item IDs are according to Lucy. They are:

11712 = Salil's Writ pg. 153 (left)
11720 = Salil's Writ pg. 288 (left)
11721 = Salil's Write pg. 282 (right)

I now have a happy baby enchanter getting the research skills off of these.

The one's I have seen were

Holgresh Elder Beads
Slot: NECK
Charges: Unlimited
Effect: Eye of Zomm (Any Slot, Casting Time: 4.0)
WT: 0.2 Size: SMALL
Class: ALL
Race: ALL

and they worked in inventory =\ which is why they stopped dropping methinks. Friend of mine 60 iksar monk (quit b4 luclin came out) had these and used the eye of zomm to pull lol. Sold for about 500k on Brell Serilis server.

I've gone through two 2-3 hour camp sessions and have not seen them drop. I suspect they were nerfed, or are now a very rare drop.

I know this is an old thread, but I'll post what I know anyway.

These no longer drop. I guess they're just another one of those items which SOE decided were too useful for everyone to own. Makes sense I suppose.
The ones already in circulation were not nerfed. However, you can win a NoDrop version of them (very very rarely) from the ShadowHaven casino. I don't know exactly how rare, but my guess would be that you would probably save money by paying the 250k to a player :)

Tip: Very useful item for a necro (or SK in extremes). Sitting with Lich on for too long while group/raid gets set up? Eating yourself? Simply click beads and lifetap over time on eye. Also makes a fantastic Wake the Dead pet :)

53 Ranger solo
# Dec 15 2002 at 2:31 PM Rating: Decent
I'm wanting to do the shackle quest from ico,nice dex. What would you all recomend as far as tactics and the minimum amount of mr neeeded to take these out solo, as 53 rng. Also if someone has completed the quest, i have a question. I hear that the spear men attack the enraged walrus when it spawns after the turn in, and that if they do the most damage to this mob when it is killed then the aggitated gnoll will not spawn and the quest is lost. Can someone give me the low down on this? Ty )

I was soloing these as a Wizard at around level 46. It took just short of all of my mana, but I had pretty crap gear and low int. I came out of every fight, having taken 400-500 dmg.

I expect as a 53 Ranger, one could just pull these to a safe spot and hack them apart.

Never played a Ranger. I could be devastatingly wrong. 8)

I am a 38 Bard, currently working toward 45 or so, and found to Ice Forged Shackle quest today in IC. The stats will be a nice upgrade to the Serpentine Bracer I currently have in addition to a Bracer of Scavenging. I have 50 MR (not the best, I know) but was interested how much I would need to Chant kite any of these or the other mobs for the quest. I have the 30 and 38 DoT's only, none others, and MM Battle Drums (again not the best), but if anyone knows anything about this, please respond. =) Thanks in advance!

Stuck Mo Fos
# Sep 10 2002 at 3:18 PM Rating: Decent
These suckers ALWAYS get stuck under the world if you try and pull from the cave. I've tried to go here twice and its happened. Next thing you know the Elder nuking you and they also melee double hits for 50 or so hp damage a pop.

If you're a group of high 40s I'd suggest being full if you try to camp them. You need a bard for MR, chanter to mez, tank to interupt, healer and nuker to kill em ASAP.

And the benefits here are not experience. The benefits lie in the fact they drop some rare, but nice, level 39 spells such as Wiz IVU and the mage Shard of Core, which sell very well in the Bazaar...good way to get rich here.

I have been trying to camp the elder beads for a while now. Is there a possibility that they no longer drop? if so just post a responce

RE: Beads
# Aug 15 2002 at 2:44 PM Rating: Default
Yes the holgresh elder beads with effect eye of zomm no longer drop in game, you can still find them for sale but on my server people are paying upwards of 120-150kpp
RE: Beads
# Jun 23 2002 at 7:58 AM Rating: Default
from all the necros i know of, and a couple with the elder beads, i hear that they no longer drop, thats why people pay obscene prices for em
which is a shame because its SO useful
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 16 2002 at 5:00 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) They still drop, looted 3 so far today.
Holgresh fur

I am looking for Holgresh fur for tailoring a Holgresh Fur Cloak. Has anyone seen the fur drop from these?
RE: Holgresh fur
# Jun 13 2002 at 9:45 AM Rating: Default
the fur dropped off of an elementalist for me, but I think there is an even chance it drops from any of the holgresh

It's a common drop. If you kill 10 you will have 3 furs or so.
a strong stick

Will any of these creatures drop this or only a certain kind of Holgresh?

# Mar 19 2002 at 9:26 AM Rating: Default
all holgreshs drop all Mojo Sticks
RE: a strong stick
# May 30 2002 at 10:26 AM Rating: Default
a strong stick is not a mojo stick. It is for a quest in iceclad and yes all of these monkeys drop it.
not longer to drop ??
# Nov 14 2001 at 8:25 PM Rating: Default
s the summon eye's neck not longer to drop ??
whats the strong stick?
# Oct 06 2001 at 12:05 PM Rating: Default

for the ice forged shackle quest it says you need a strong stick from the holgresh's in WL is there a specific stick or would any stick work? was thinking there is an actual strong stick but not certain any help would be appriciated.

The mojo sticks will not work with this quest. There is specifically a strong stick dropped.

Is it a random spawn.. are they in a certain area?
# Jul 17 2001 at 12:11 AM Rating: Default
holgresh drop level 39 velious spells, the mojo sticks, and the beads. The beads with effect: eye of zomm are excellent for necros, if they need hp, but have nothing to lifetap, they can just bond of death they eye

How often do you see a necro without a pet, because they can't summon the eye unless they kill their pet.
The eye is considered a pet, so a necro would probably only use this when grouped without pets.

Eye of Zomm is NOT a pet, I use this spell all the time in CC to check spawns and I never have to kill my pet to use it, all this spell does is change your view point and allows you to move it around, that's it, just a movable PoV, best part is its not KoS, at least to Ry'Gorr orcs...

Actually, if you check the posting date, Eye of Zomm WAS a pet in 2001. It was in a later patch that they changed Eye of Zomm so you could cast it while you already had a pet summoned. Mages complained that Eye of Zomm was a useless spell for them because you had to kill your pet to cast it. You probably also don't remember the days when mages and their pets were unwelcome in dungeon groups because their pets were KOS, and the first thing they would do when you cast them was take a walk down the closest hallway and pull every mob back to the group. They fixed this in a patch at about the same time so that pets were indifferent, and eventually fixed the pets so they stuck close to the mage and didn't go strolling off on their own anymore. But, if you didn't play a mage before 2002, you probably never experienced one of those thrilling moments. :o)

Unfortuately I have had it happen a couple times where I took on something that was a weeee bit too
powerful for me, ended up with no pet, no mana, a
bub of health or less, and FD on the deck hahah.

That would be a great time to have an eye to lifetap. Otherwise just have to sit there and regen mana with no Call of Bones to help. Then summon a new pet and buff it and regen mana again.

Of course if it was a zone where low lvl stuff was running around you could just lifetap one of them but in a zone like Wakening lands thats not an option.

Anyhow thats my 2cp.

1 FR, 1 CR, 2 MR, Effect: Eye of Zohm.

Also, the beads with the grim aura effect work, it's just that the effect is on when you put them on.

Yes. Our party's Mage got this spell last night. Our Enchanter and necro also got spells but I do not recall the names. Enchanter also picked up pages to Sillatin's Grimiore # 174, 288, and Silils Writ Pages #300 & 301.
