Hey everyone,I wanted to start this thread so we can help each other out on finding those collectors that have our items. Here is one I've found so far.

LOCATION OF COLLECTOR
Witman's Folly, outside of Port Sledge
Requires 5 Iridecent Grawl Necklaces to obtain item
Holy Staff
11-22 Fire Damage (req.9 Divine Favor)
+10 Energy
20% Chance of improved recharge with Divine Favor Skills
20% Chance of improved casting speed with Divine Favor Skills

If anyone out there has any more location of collectors that give Staffs, Wands, Anhks, Icons, etc for Monks, please reply to this thread with the location collector and what item he gives :happy34: I think this thread should help us all out in getting those items we need.

i believe you are correct. what i want to know is this: does the 20% chance of fast recharge on a single skill type from a rod and a focus stack?

Yes they do, basically giving you a 40% chance.

Anyone can tell me where's Port Sledge located?

Port Sledge is located South East of Droknar's Forge.
Exit SE to Witman's Folly and stick to the Western Wall/Hill, the port is about twice as much South than East.

well for the guys at the portal south of destiny's gorge in skyreach something, it says he has a +12 energy healing ankh but nowhere does it say that it's +20% recharge & stuff..

It doesn't display those stats until you buy it, but all of the top level collectors wands, staves and focuses come with the maximum possible enhancements, which in this case would be the two 20%'s.

And to further set your mind at ease i have the 20/20 offhand item, and i'm 90% sure that was the collector that i got if from.

Yes, the +20% stats are all there once you get that item from the collector. I'm not sure why the developers decided NOT to display ALL the stats of the items you obtain from collectors... But believe this, if a Collector is offering a Staff with MAX damage (11-22), and MAX Energy (+10), it is going to have nice stats on it when you get it. Same goes for Focus items with MAX Energy (+12), and MAX damage Rods. What this appears to be, is that the Collectors offer you items similiar to that of the ones you could choose from when you made a PvP Only Character :eek:

Hi

All the previous Info seems to concern 2 handed monk weapons ( staff ).

Can anyone inform me plz what the max damage/stats are for a one handed
wand/rod are, and what the possible upgrades are ( if indeed u can upgrade a 1 handed item of this sort ).

Basically in a nutshell , for a healing monk whats the best available 1 hander.

I wish there was a nice staff for healing skills. As it stands, I'm using one of the +12/20%/20% focus items but I basically have a newbie wand, which seems like a waste. I mean, the staves are nice, but who actually uses Divine Favor skills more than Healing Prayers skills?

I don't use a smiting wand because I don't waste any points in smiting skills when I'm a 100% healing monk.

Are there any divine favour 1-handed wands from collectors?

Yes there is, i found a collector in "Snake Dance" area. You need 5 Azure Remains to get the "Holy Rod (req. 9 Divine)". I would tell you what the stats are on it... But unfortunately i didnt have the items needed to get it :( BTW the collector is pretty far into Snake Dance. About halfway in, near the Marnta Doomspeaker spawn point. Oh, and while your out there, you might as well get the monk elite skill "Peace and Harmony" from Marnta :happy34:

A pure healing monk would typically not use many divine favor skills, but a protection/healing monk is likely to use divine favor spells, and might in fact have higher divine then healing. Ie blessed signet, divine healing, divine intervention and divine boon are nice divine favor skills.

SilverstarAKR could you take the locations and edit them into your original post? Would make it easier for people if this topic gets really big. :D

Thy Guardian

Speaking of those, are there any collectors Holy Staffs?

How can a healing ankh do damage if it is a focus item ?

I have a healing ankh that does
+12 energy
and
20/20 healing but no dmg...

Maybe a confusion here ?

You should always read the entire thread before posting in it.
The poster who made that statement cleared it up already, he simply got a bit carried away with C&P and never edited it out.

Then it would probably be this one:
x. Brandon Harlin trades 5 encrusted loadstones for
Protective icon (energy+12, req. 9 protection prayers)

He is a little NorthWest outside of Dunes of Despair. The different collectors appear to have 1 of the 2 different of each type. One with the 20/20 and one with +Energy, -regen & +health. This should be the 20/20 for Protection

16-06-2005, 06:20
Wait, why is that someone said 20/20 rods exist when here they are posted only having the 20 recharge?

I have yet to find a 20/20 rod. Only a single 20% bonus on rods. The icons have BOTH 20/20. I don't think anyone here posted that a 20/20 rod exists.

From my observations, the rods given by the collectors in the desert do not have energy boosts.

The staves give +10 and the divine symbol gives +12.

There is a healing ankh that gives a +12 energy 20/20 healing prayers at the cost of -1 energy regen.

Looks to me as though there isn't a staff however with a 20/20 for healing, only for divine favour.

who cares, collectors staffs suck in every statistical way compared to their weapon/offhand counterparts. i suppose if you are really into its visuals...

rare staffs with exceptional mods, now thats where its at!

Fitzy
13-07-2005, 05:46
True.

I really need to get myself a decent rod (preferrably with an energy boost) and i might get one of those +12 divine symbols from the collector.
