Some rare drop epic components are farmed here. Loot rights still sell pretty well on TLPs.

It's considered a "minor" item (no stats, no aug slots, doesn't have an effect), so we don't list it automatically. If you still want to see minor items from a zone, you may use the Advanced Item Search (a feature for premium members).

Immortals is not a minor item, as mentioned it is an Epic quest item. While you do in fact list a number of minor items in the list. Pearl Necklace, Mithril Amulet, and Opal Bracelet are just 3 that are on the short list you can look at on this page.

I went killing in the zone with my 55 Druid and killed a lot of LB mobs. My xp counter barely moved. I did get a few spell drops and some plat but it took hours to get even 1 aa. This is not the place to kill for leveling.

um i totally disagree with getting 1AA an hour..I have my level 56 shaman in there and he already has 40 AA's and it is still going up rather fast.

Now for leveling experience it is quite bad it barly moves.

New Hot zone, new temporary (?) mob
# Jun 19 2006 at 11:39 AM Rating: Decent
I was crossing the zone on 6/17/06 with my 56 Pally and ran across a mob called a Mottled Wyvern. It conned blue, so I took a swing at it. It hit for 250ish, and wasn't going down very rapidly. I took off and ran halfway across the zone using Fabled Jboots and stopped near the zone to OT to rest. After a minute or so it showed up right next to me and started wailing on me. I didn't see it running across the zone. Might have been due to lag, but that hasn't been an issue for me lately. Upshot is, it seems that once aggroed, this mob stays aggroed and in pursuit until you zone.

New VP quest

We managed to spawn Suled Dar's Shade by clicking all the orbs simultaneously.
Red con, KOS, see invis, permarooted seethrough dragon. Casts Infinite Mass( and Shock Breath(
Melees for around 2.4k and AE ramps.

Suled Dar's Shade says "You have awakened something which you should not have, fool!"
You have been slain by Suled Dar's Shade.

When he spawns, a zonewide shout is seen. Some yellow message about a light on the mountain range you're on. and some guy shouts about the orbs collapsing and he's not sure what's going to happen.

We're not sure yet, but we think you might have to be in melee range to cast spells.

He sees through SoS too =( have fun with the CRs, we are.

Spell Drops?

Have they nerfed the spell drops for this zone? I have been hunting here for about 4 days (an average of 4 hours a day), so for about 16 hours total. I have been looking for my Enchanter spells. In this hunting time frame, I have had about 5 spells drop.

My Ranger buddy is pulling the named mobs, plus we are killing other various mobs on top of the named mobs, but we have gone hours without a single spell drop. Are we doing something wrong or did they nerf the spell drop rates??

The WORST change
# May 09 2004 at 8:35 AM Rating: Decent
When i used to fight regularly in this zone, ending about a year and a half ago, I had a very nice spot where I could stand and fight (and even fear kite a little) on the west wall between two lava flows - just above and to the north of a dragon head at the end of the southern flow. This spot was nice because: the higher level mobs of the zone would spawn there, and it was far enough away from the zone-ins that I'd never have competition for mobs. I'd even see Talendor pass by every once in awhile.

Just went back there with my new pair of characters and the field in front of me was completely barren of mobs. In fact it seems that all of the zone is barren except the areas immediately around the zone lines (incl VP) and the north-eastish part of the zone. To me this is the most dissapointing part of Sony's changes to the zone.

In the words of Kenny and Kyle when thier dear friend is killed: "You bastards!"

Does anybody know what the turn boxes are for? You click them and they turn. No idea what they do. Is this just some distraction for the baby minded mobs? Something for them to play with? I didn't know there was a second box until a few minutes ago. I guess I'll grab somebody and turn them at the same time.

When Eldrig spawns he starts to wander after a minute or two.
His placeholders do the same.
If there's no sign of Eldrig and nothing is spawning at his spot,
I usually start killing everything roaming around and eventually you will get a placeholder or Eldrig himself to spawn.
His spawn point is to the right of the Overthere zoneline, right hand side if you are looking out towards Skyfire from OT zoneline.

Hidden valley
# Jan 22 2004 at 11:25 PM Rating: Decent
Along west edge of zone is an unfinished valley, protected by a knife-edge cliff < a 20,000 hp fall - how I found it :( >. The cliff runs along west wall from -2845 in the south to about 0 in the north. Seems empty, maybe forgotten by SoE, or a to-be-continued add-on. I eventually found a place to slip-slide down (or you could levitate-float down), but Gate/summon/port is the only way out - watch yer step running in that area. If ya had a need to be away from it all in EQ, this is it.

Pearl Shards
# Jun 20 2003 at 1:43 PM Rating: Decent
I'm currently trying to obtain 3 more shards to finish my my long awaited epic. Does anyone have any info that could possibly cut my wait down even further. I was with a grp last night that was treating all the skyfire mobs like they were chumps. We constantly trained the group and landed numerous spells/tradeskill items, but the shards eluded me. I was wondering if there are mobs that have been discovered to drop them more frequently or if it's just a uber rare drop off of just about any mob. (my luck they drop more frequently off of the chromadics) If someone could spout out what knowledge they've obtained it would be greatly appreciated.

RE: Pearl Shards
# Jun 20 2003 at 1:58 PM Rating: Good
I have spent many hours helping my Cleric friends camp Skyfire for thier shards. I saw no pattern at all, the shards can drop from any MoB, and they drop very very slowly. We were lucky in that a couple of times groups who were hunting for other things would call out "pearl shard at xxx, yyy" when one dropped from one of their MoBs.

As far as I could tell from my many hours of experience, it's just a massive test of patience.

These guys are on Ring of Scale and Minions of Scale (or whatever that one is). Killing in Mistmoore ups only Ring of Scale, not sure where to repair Minions. Wizard port can be hazardous, I port in with lessor evac up and usually have no problems though.

The druid rings port-in is very safe, may be one or 2 mobs wandering near there--just port in SoWed and if you gett aggro run due south will take you to the Burning Woods ZL. The wizard portal is entirely different, can be half a dozen mobs there and will be a few that will debuff. Be glad you are a druid this time hehe.

BTW this is Kunark not Velious CoV faction means nothing in SF--its all ring of scale ( RoS ) and Minions of Scale faction. Only way I know to raise them is by killing in MM castle.

RE: Pearl Shards
# Mar 04 2003 at 9:23 PM Rating: Decent
Well I don't know how rare they are, but have been quadding the lowers here, and have had two of them drop, the first one I didn't know what it was so I looted it, the second one I found out what it was and just sent a tell to a person who had been medding by me, and he picked it up. Not everything is about money and if anyone on Tunare would like me to send them a tell when one drops just give me a tell in game and I will be happy to give you a tell with the loc, hehe though you will have to find your own port in, that wizard portal must be the most dangerous portal in the game. Anyways good luck out there and happy hunting.

Shards are fairly rare and I believe can drop from any mob in the zone. I know when I camped SF that if someone was looking for one they usually offered 500pp-2kpp to loot rights ( they are no-drop you know ). I saw maybe 4 or 5 drop in several levels of adventuring in SF.
As far as a group letting you loot them, they are only of use to a cleric, so as long as you are the only cleric in the group you should get dibs on the shard. Make sure that they group doesnt have someones alt cleric waiting on the shard to drop before you join the group.

After reading through this thread, it seems to me that people aren't seeing probably the worst change to this zone: the godforsaken chromadracs. As a necro, I started soloing here at 51. Things were great: I could fearkite anything not named or rare near the BW zoneline, and there was always something else to be pulled. Then, the "upgrade" first pull is a chromadrac, which I had slaughtered enmasse before, who proceeds to dispell 3 important buffs--from extended range--while simultaneously dropping a nice DoT on me and my pet. This had never happened before. I zoned out and came back, then tried again...same thing.

In the old skyfire, the chromadracs had the debuff. It had a nice short range, so as long as you were careful, you could avoid being hit by it (though I did have to rebuff the pet constantly). The Boiling Blood spell was something the drakes used within melee range, along with their breath attack from slightly farther away. I think something got botched when the zone was changed, and the Boiling Blood was mistakenly moved from the drakes to the chromadracs.

The bottom line: the chromadracs suck now. Go to any area of the zone where people set up camp and on an average day, you'll see about 80% chromadracs and 20% everything else (sometimes even worse). Nobody wants to fight them. Pullers will duck and weave through them to pull anything else they can find back to their group. If the zone is crowded, I spend half my time sitting on top of a rock, watching the the chromadrac ballet, hoping I can beat the other pullers to the first anything-not-chromadrac that pops.

I usually look down on the "change this or I'll quit" posts people make. I'm not threatening to quit; however, this really needs to be fixed. One draw to this zone once upon a time was the spell drops, but most of the spells that drop here sell for more to a vendor than you'll get out of a player for them. The named cycle is still great, but can be and usually is done easily by a single group. The other big draw, which is what got me started here, was the wonderful soloing potential. It's just not worth the headache anymore as this once great zone has become a late-night last resort.

My bazaar mule is full of spells I have got from my wizard quading in SF. Started single kiting matures mostly but got bored and started quading the lower level mobs. Chromadrac's are usually up all over the place and easy meet for a wizard. Groups dont' like them because of the dispell but as long as you don't let them get too close they don't cast on you. Takes alot of work bunching them up but at 58 I am getting 3/5 of a blue AA exp per quad. Nice solo exp and not as dangerous as those AE groups (love them too, thats why I need RS3).

Spells drop so often that the bazaar is lousy with most of them that I get.

Well, as an SK, DL offers great solo exp untill 50 or so, then you should go to BW. If you will only group I don't know where optimal zones are, but for soloing I took my SK from 46-52 in two weeks in DL and BW with ease.

Does anyone know what the box is near the lava river, in a rather deep gully? It is just north of the BW zone, where the lava comes from beneath the dragon head. I click on it and you hear an audible click, and the box rotates, but I saw nothing happen.

On Wed May4th while killing mobs in search of the elusive pearlscent fragments, our group was located just north of the Veeshan entrance on a hill. Our monk puller pulled a gaurdian wurm twice. although I did not time to spawns as I was just killing to get fragments to drop I can tell you that our session was from around 2pm est to 6:30 est. So if you apply the logic that the first gaurdean was up and ready to die, then it would be logical to say that respawn is no more that about 4 hours on the long side and could be shorter. I apologize I didnt really pay attention just that the 2nd time the monk pulled it we lost badly so it did make an impression. Hope that helps.
