Greek/Roman origins

The Roman goddess Minerva is the Greek's name for Athena, commonly known as the goddess of war and wisdom. She is often seen with an owl, which we know now as a sign of wisdom. She was never a child but was always a virgin. She was apparently childish and was from birth, armed. Her sheild has Medusa's head on it. The head was given to her from Perseus.

Link to Perseus: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Perseus

The link to Perseus is dead. Use the link on Athena's page to Perseus. Sorry 'bout that.



Edit: Extra Info- Athena gave Perseus a magic shield in which he could see Medusa's reflection in without turning into stone.


BTW, I edited this one because Allakhazam won't allow me to edit my first one.

Just wait for SE to nerf it, then we'll get 'em all right.

On another note, does anyone have pics of them fighting it? Just out of curiosity, that is.

I bet there's an opposite ring to this some place as well. Physical damage - 8% magic damage +8%, would be a the jelly ring after months at the gym.

Does absolute virtue drop a virtue stone? If so, I've seen one guy on Fairy with one, as well as the Great Axe that uses the stone. Can't remember name, but if that is the case, I'll try to look for him and ask him about it.

No. Virtue stones are obtained by trading common drops from regular mobs in sea to a guy in the Safehold. And the Axe is a drop off a first tier Jailer (Sea NM).

This was copied directly from MysteryTour. At this point, the information they have listed is believed to be a guess. No one, NA or JP, that anyone knows of, has killed, much less popped Absolute Virtue.
