Looted Words of Spirit off of a Burynai Excavator in the basement of the tower in Field of Bone.. Words of Materials haven't dropped in hours.

Sorry, it was a Burynai mob but not sure which kind. Could have been any one in the basement.

Have sold it many times for 645pp in the bazaar on Tribunal.

When doing research you usually can't make the spells for the price of buying the components. I seldom pay over 20pp per words unless I can sell the spell for over 500pp. On the few that are research only, the spells will usually cost over 500pp if purchased in the bazaar.

I suggest the Sarnak Fort in LoIO for finding the words for this spell. Also check the vendors in the zones where they drop as some people just sell the words for what the vendors will give for them.

Good luck,

I never got this spell, but it looks very usefull because Nec can't even root till lvl34. I don't know if 8tick timer means it doesnt break early or not, that'd make it even more usefull then root at lvl34 vs undead. will need someone else to say if it breaks early or not like other roots.

I wish I had this when i was lvling up, this can mean less deaths in gunthak if you messed up an FD.

You are correct, this spell is very useful. It came in handy countless times in my youth.

In case anyone is wondering the Words of Spirit can be found in FOB by killing Lesser Icebone Skeleton and in kurns tower by the Lesser Icebone Skeleton as well.
Words of Materials can be found in FOB by A Burynai Excavator or a Greater Scalebone and In Kurns Tower by the same 2 creatures
They can be found in other places but i found them the fastest in these 2 zones.
How 2 get

To get this spell you need to go to the bazaar and look up Words of Materials and Words of Spirit. After u have the words, you go ask a Necro with a 30+ research to combine you the words in the "Book of Dark Bindings" then you get the Spell: Hungry Earth.

Not so bad if you're in zone with lots of undead like Unrest or Befallen. Pretty useless most everywhere else. 8 ticks may not seem like such a long time, but when you consider how much damage a well armed pet can do to a mob that has been stacked with DoTs while you stand back and cast your Lifetap or Ward Undead lines of spells, or how much health and mana you can recover in that time, it can save your butt. Potentially useful for pulling a train off someone else, as well. In those types of zones you never know when you may need to call on someone else for assistance and the best way to get help is to give it. Most people are grateful when you can save them from xp loss and are happy to return the favor.
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 10 2003 at 12:14 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Your first root spell, although you can only cast on undead. This root spell doesnt last long so it is rather useless, dont waste your time researching it.
