Hmm, the onslaught of replies has me thinking I will wait until RoK to do this zone <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

I haven't seen any loot come out of SoF that makes me think "Wow, I <i>must</i> have that for my SK!"  To be honest, the loot that I've seen looks rather subpar to me.

We had an ok shield drop.  Can't remember the name...I can check with the guildie tonight.

Other than the bugged stun spear, nothing for me.  The gear is mid to high end T7 legendary... if that's what you're wearing, some of it might be an upgrade.

My monk actually tanked Shard of Fear a bit and I got a Shiverback Chest piece. Very disappointing. The stats suck for a 76 Heroic named no-drop item and the Graphic is a mud colored chest covering. In EQ1 the SB chest piece was the first GI look for monks. I was hoping it was at least look good. <img src="/eq2/images/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" width="15" height="15" />

A number of weapons, 1h and 2h, a bunch of resist fear gear... It's only subpar if you're already well equipped. Most of the loot seems very "non-raider transition to RoK" ish.

<p>It's a shame they have a habit of adding a better-than-raid drop caster item to every endgame heroic instance - Nizara has the sash and stone (not to mention orb from the x2 in FC), Unrest has the wand and cloak, and now SoF has that necklace), whereas the best tank loot is exclusively from x4 raids.</p><p>No wonder it's always hardest to find a decent tank for these zones, because there's very little motivation to do them, particularly if you raid.</p>

Kinda miffed at the length of SoF and the item rewards that are present there.  However my gripe with the items is minor since there are some nice items.  Sad thing is most of em if not all of them are no-trade which can create problems.  Already got my eye on one item that drops in there for my SK even though he has the bloodbath axe.

<p>The rewards are pretty dirt poor inside. A lot of them either:</p><p>1. Offer negative stats for a really good bonus effect.</p><p>2. Offer very little stats for a Flowing thought 6 spell effect.</p><p>3. Are level 71 or higher in addition to numbers 1 and 2.</p><p>4. Arn't leather.</p><p>.... seriously. I have yet to see any leather drop in that zone. Where's my Shiverback Hide Armor that my monk had in EQlive?</p>

Infirmity, Closing Time, Cog Turner, Modinthalis, Tab Collector, Bloodspiller. All better weapons, and that's JUST from Unrest. The proc on Awe is "okay", but give me a phantom handle, I'll do the same thing with a better weapon. As for the 2 handers, one just has "cool" factor, which will wear off in a hurry, and the other is just ridiculously broke and sure to get fixed soon.
