Which mob in Temple drops this? Aztur?
mongowarr @ 2003-05-28 17:06
i think it might be lien but unsure about it!
Xyboc @ 2003-06-27 17:32
Aztur drops the Skull of the Ancient, and the rate is VERY, VERY low.
Solitazz @ 2004-04-21 01:12
Seen it drop 2 times, but compared to symbiants this is crap :D
Bubb @ 2004-10-06 01:06
Solitazz, how many Symbs U think was in game when Xybox wrote his post? Hmm. And another thing, this thing can be put in a bit earlier than any Symbs....
moragen @ 2004-10-13 18:21
And, geeze.. 6's accross the board for 400 treats? It's nice. And, look at 50 MC. This is a 35~ish lvl Enf's friend. :)
Julemand @ 2004-12-15 11:13
Or a NT's friend ^^
Volkanov @ 2005-08-07 19:17
It's nice for that extra bit of base stats its add especially since u can't get agility in a head plant.
andyzweb @ 2005-09-07 00:45
what about this for a fixer
Redadv @ 2005-09-08 10:35
its nice for anyone really who needs to push just a few extra base stats out, since no other head gives +abilities (well agi, str, sta)
homunkulus @ 2005-09-27 15:15
camped 3 month.... never seen it
Pillager @ 2005-10-23 05:27
i hear this isnt in game, has any1 ever seen this? on aowiki it says its ingame, but you need a team. so any1 sure or not?
SpACatta @ 2005-11-07 05:33
Yeah, homunkulus... I'm sure you camped it for three months. I'm sure you killed Aztur a billion times in those three months and did /terminate several times a day for those three months.

Why do people lie to make items seem harder to get?
wooshell @ 2005-11-12 02:28
Because this item IS hard to get? Seen Aztur being killed about 100 times now, this implant was never in the loot.
tegrere @ 2005-11-14 07:02
this thing would be the twink nts favorite freind :D lol, especialy because imps cant get betting you could get this on in sub if you had a full treat suit, sfa, and maxed treat, and then u can get the intel easy with 2 OETs and shades of lubrication
Shelnaria @ 2005-11-25 11:46
Camped tonight Killed Aztur with team for roughly 8 hours. Nothing. Very low drop rate on this item but nice to have.
tegrere @ 2005-12-02 10:21
I heard from a pretty reliable source last night (If your around lvl 50 on rk2, and have spent a bit of time chatting outside temple, you migh have run into mindstab) that it dosent drop anymore. And just considering that the guy who I asked has killed aztur over 150 times, probably more, if it is in game, the drop rate is so low that it might as well not be
tweek @ 2005-12-04 02:41
yeah ive killed az alot and its never dropped i dont think ive seen more then one person say they have it.
Djemon @ 2005-12-12 20:32
Listen guys ... There are many low drop items in totw but lemme give you this hint ! : The drop rate is gettingmuch higher when you solo them ... For example i got an twinked engie with lvl 139 warbot ... i can solo aztur with ease :) ... I have found it one time ... It really rox .. especcially those abilities buffs ... realy usefull
Hanzmistro @ 2005-12-20 01:25
Just got this today....on my 60 keeper... so its still ingame. Never seen it before today though.
Dood @ 2005-12-21 12:46
Just found one by chance on my Engi today, it still exists... althought I'll probably never use it on my engi :( but its nice to show that i got it
elite1337 @ 2005-12-22 04:34
omfg, i found 11 at once. i was lucky.
(i just wanna point out, that *SAYING* you found it, doesnt make it true.) proff please. screenshot links, ingame refs, please. rather than 'i just found it'.
oh, btw, i altso found Blackmane's Stat Buffer X 11 from a single leet, in the ICC shuttleport. plus, when i found it, i got morphed into a GM, so i could use it.. errr... or something. *Sighs*
Comi @ 2006-01-02 01:11
Vinyaya @ 2006-01-11 05:11
It's true, Hanzmistro really did find one, I was in team with him when he looted it from Aztur. Damn I wish I won that roll lol
empyreanwolf @ 2006-02-02 05:46
Got 1 recently when campin for MoTR
empyreanwolf @ 2006-02-02 05:49

genius71 @ 2006-04-13 02:53

genius71 @ 2006-04-13 02:56

genius71 @ 2006-04-13 02:56

RobB @ 2006-09-14 00:36
lead how much XP do you have in your pool?
Ginsumaster @ 2006-09-24 18:58
Pool? ToTW twinks use /terminate to die, you get no pool
Tyrade @ 2006-10-10 21:26
I spent 3 months camping for dual Frozen Tears and since Azzy is in the way, I killed him equal ammounts of time. never saw a single one of these. Only got 1 Frozen Tear out of all of that too.
Jornado @ 2007-02-08 23:40
still ingame apparently, had a 220 MP post it in bor a week ago when it came up in discussion, claimed it dropped after about 50ish azzy kills
Vxrniss @ 2007-02-10 04:06
Hmmm killed aztur a shitload of times on my Engi doing styg services never dropped. =P thats 300+ kills of just me, nobody i know has ever seen it ingame, or seen it being posted for that matter.
playaslaya @ 2007-03-23 19:13
hmm on my engi i killed aztur about 12 times and got its 1 time and the a few weeks later i tried again and got it for a friend after like 15 kills lol not that RARE but its kinda rare frozen tears dropped a bunch of times it was crazy them two days
sythoid @ 2007-07-26 11:59
@ playa
Thats called being a lucky SoB...
I've killed azzy hundred's of time's an seen it drop once. It is VERY rare. droprate is like 1/100 or somthing.

it's _extremely_ easy to script an item reference, doesn't mean they actually have it.
Incinerator @ 2007-10-07 04:05
I've seen it drop more than once, IIRC it dropped from lien, aztur and I'm fairly sure one of the other bosses had it in its loot table too as well as keeper's vitality dropped from not only Gatua but I think Curator dropped it too.
This was around the year 2005, seems to have been removed from loot table now tho or loot table just been screwed up and changed over the years...
DeepThroat @ 2007-10-08 20:45
wtb for my lvl 21 GA fix
zan @ 2008-11-26 20:04
i think this item is suppose to drop from aztur, lien and re-ani.
livesangry @ 2009-01-22 18:07
i also killed aztur 100+ times my org mate mindstab killed him even more never seen it drop so i think it's not dropping anymore aswell as i ask other TOTW twinks i always get the answer that they never seen it most dont even know what it is....
Dredmech @ 2009-02-10 17:29
It is still on test so it should still be ingame but only Funcom knows and if you've played this game for a few years you know how that goes.
pumpkinguy @ 2009-10-03 05:32
i saw it once, in 2007, some dick ninja'd it so i never saw it again
jakeen229 @ 2010-04-02 08:00
ive seen it recelty
Troika @ 2010-06-02 11:22
I got this :D
tazerboy @ 2011-05-14 22:04
Been dieing to get it that and nem's eye and keeper vality is pretty good until Is
tazerboy @ 2011-07-10 20:18
i wish his drop rate on it wasnt soooo low
aocat @ 2011-08-23 08:10
/ch ot ooc
<a href="itemref://204647/204647/1">Skull of the Ancient</a>

Hey look everyone!! It IS still ingame!
aocat @ 2015-04-22 08:13
So, apparently, with the release of 18.7, this actually *IS* ingame with a reasonable drop rate... go nuts.
uberdose @ 2015-05-22 09:12
Aocat is right. A few days ago someone looted one, and I looted one tonight. Both times where from Nem, though.
aocat @ 2015-06-04 01:30
Yep, I just saw one drop off nematet a few minutes ago...
kilafiremage @ 2015-06-26 08:51
about damn time they raised the droprate on this, nema eye, and KV

this is one of those items that ANY tl2 twink would LOVE to have, froob or paid, for the ability bonuses if nothing else. yet nobody ever had it because the droprate was so crappy that it made people wonder if it was actually in game... rofl... only Funcom...

however, now that it's actually dropping, no TL2 twink can really do without it (if you want to push the limits and not be basic, that is)
