Apparently I've had better luck getting this than most. In another post (dealing with Nadox and the quest) they mentioned an unfinished room all the way down the left hand hallway coming from the temple ZI. Use it, it was a great spot. At level 62, I had no trouble tanking these with a small group of high 50, low 60 CLR, DRU and WIZ. They didn't aggro much, didn't help each other out either that I could see. I used Cinder Jolt to pull and only twice did I get adds. The only pain is that they gate when health gets low. BUt we came up with a solution for that too. And don't say just whack it down, cause the only one actually meleeing was me, the Ranger. The Druid would fire debuff, I would cast Calcification and the Wizzy went in for the kill shot. Got them dead before they gated, every time. My drop was 1 in 10, I spent about 3 hours.

I would suggest combining any camps with the blood quests for healer types.

I camped the roon with Adherents Four times. Each with a group of at least 4 peeps over 50. A total of 19 hours and 53 kills (adherents) later, and it finally dropped. Havent gotten spell yet but cant wait!

--spent the past two days camped at the room southwest of the Nautilus Room, pulling Broken Skull Adherents like crazy to the group...no drop, though. Wish there was a secret I am missing...

Worth getting

This spell is worth getting because:
A)It casts 1.4 seconds faster than FS at the same lvl
B)It has a better mana to dmg ratio than FS
C)The only down side... it takes awile to get back up for a recast, but as a ranger you dont want to cast to fast durung battle becaue you can do more dmg with your weps and you also dont want to do alot of casting as to take away agro from the tank. so concider it as a pacing timer.

If I'm the tank for the group, I almost alwasy open with this... then follow up with Ensnare, Immolate, and Drones of Doom... hehe, nice aggro :p

If I'm soloing, I use it to break the root on an add once I am done with the first one(s)... usually works... that combined with the DoTs listed in the previous paragraph makes for pretty decent damage output icing. *Mmm, damage cake... yum* :p

But, I do occasionally have my Firestrike memmed instead... in groups without a cleric and I'm not the MT - I can step out when low on health and DD the MoB to death on an assist becasue If I'm not the MT and we don't have a cleric, I don't need to be taking Druid/Shaman heals from the MT unless I need to... and I can heal myself up and jump back in... or take the DD route.

I agree. One of the reasons I rarely cast Firestrike is the long cast time, during which I might be able to do the same amount of damage with melee instead. Since this takes less time to cast and does greater damage, I would be more likely to cast Icewind.

it takes a small group to take these guys on.. and I am a 58th level ranger... I would say it took me a total of 7 hours...3 one night, and 4 more the next day... set up camp at the end of the hall past the Nautlius room... got mine off a Adherant who was standing outside of this room.

Yes it is finally solved.

The name is a glowing zraxthril Amulet nodrop RNG only ,dropps off of Broken skull Adherants

Here is the text for you all.

[Mon Mar 03 20:27:51 2003] You say, 'Hail, Gaudric Stormwynd'

[Mon Mar 03 20:27:51 2003] Gaudric Stormwynd says 'Greetings, Korwin. What brings you to this forsaken rock? I have been sent here by the council of Surefall Glade to gather information about this Island. This place seethes with anger and hatred, and even the familiar [winds] of Karana blow with a cold bite. So far the creatures have all proved very hostile, even to a follow of Karana. I suspect that the curse of Innoruuk has caused them be very aggressive towards all outsiders. I have been able to gather some information on a new race of [insect] though'

[Mon Mar 03 20:28:05 2003] You say, 'What wind?'

[Mon Mar 03 20:28:06 2003] Gaudric Stormwynd says 'The fury of a truly torrential storm is a beautiful thing. Even in their destruction they bring the birth of new life. Such is the cycle of life on Norrath, from the ashes nature always rebuilds. The trolls care nothing for this cycle though, and merely use the power of the storm to fill their treasuries. I hear the tormented cries of tempest [spirits] across the wind.'

You say. What spirits?

[Mon Mar 03 20:28:18 2003] Gaudric Stormwynd says 'I believe the followers of Nadox have found a way to control the spirits of the tempest by capturing them in amulets made of the black rock from the island. Bring me one of their amulets and I may be able to free the spirit from it.'
can do these agai '

You give him the (A glowing zraxthril Amulet)

[Mon Mar 03 20:28:46 2003] Gaudric Stormwynd takes the amulet from your hand and holds it in front of his eyes. He begins to speak arcane words into the stone, holding his other hand under the amulet. The amulet begins to spasm around crazily on its cord as if some creature were trying to escape from it. Sweat begins to bead up on Gaudric's brow. Suddenly the amulet explodes with light and Gadric is thrown to the ground. You reach down and careful pick up the amulet from the ground. You notice a large crack across the face.

[Mon Mar 03 20:28:46 2003] Gaudric Stormwynd says 'A watery visage begins to rise from the crack in the amulet and take shape before you. The tempest spirit coalesces into a vaguely humanoid form and motions toward you. He points directly to the amulet in your hands.'

He gives you a amulet back and the Tempest spirit spawns to your left. Turn and hand him the amulet you have in your hand.

[Mon Mar 03 20:28:54 2003] A Tempest Spirit takes the amulet from you and holds it in his watery hand. The wind around you rises and the sea begins to swell. The spirit melts into a swirling pool at your feet. You gaze down into the pool and notice it begin to shrink in circumference. It continues to shrink and spin until finally there is nothing left but a small blue amulet on the ground. You reach to pick it up and hear a voice echo from the sea. 'Call us and we will aid you.'

And you have your new spell. VERY COOL GRAPHICS BTW...

Well I out of here. Be safe and fare thee well.

Here is the dialogue from Gaudric Stormwynd


You say, 'Hail, Gaudric Stormwynd'
Gaudric Stormwynd says 'Greetings, Soulduster. What brings you to this forsaken rock? I have been sent here by the council of Surefall Glade to gather information about this Island. This place seethes with anger and hatred, and even the familiar [winds] of Karana blow with a cold bite. So far the creatures have all proved very hostile, even to a follow of Karana.

As far as amulet is concerned, will have to get more info on that.

Wondering
# Jan 29 2003 at 8:10 PM Rating: Decent
I'm wondering the same thing about this spell and the Level 44th Spell (Swarm of Pain): It's news to me and every Ranger I know, and cannot be found anywhere in game by anyone!

Is this a real spell that will exist in the future or not, because I would really be excited to get it!

Who, what, when, where, why? This is the only place I find any reference to this spell. Does anyone have any additional information? Primarily, does anyone know where I can get it?

Thanks!
