Weight on this item went up to 45 stone. At least that is where it's at on Vulak.

The last I looked, a couple weeks ago, these are going for 10-14k in the Bazaar. That's because of the +10/all saves, which is pretty darn nice on a PvP server. But even with that in mind, SZ prices are sky-high, compared to those of other servers.

These spaulders have nice saves, i use em on my war when im ineed of them, but normally i use barbed dragonscale pauldrons AC:5 STR+5 STA+10 AGI+9 SV POISON+15... On my servor barbed dragonscale typically go for 4-5k and imbued granite spauldres usually go for 2-3k. However recently the spaulders have dropped to a mere 1k!!! Lots of prices are dropping even before the new expansion (People are trying to sell their items before they go way down in price after the new expansion release) So many people are trying to sell them that one person prices theres cheap and the next person prices their's cheaper and so on and so forth...I guess these are much better than barbed dragonscale for their price... I cant believe they go for 10k on your servors, but those may be out-dated posts. I know my servor is ultra cheap though...thought i would give a few going prices:

windblade 10-14k
swiftblade of zek 12-16k
runed bolster belt 15-20k
soulscream belt 15k
cloak of greater pernicity 5-7k
bracelt of might 2-3k
bracelet of fortitude 4-5k
bracelet of sense 6-7k
bracelet of comprehension 5-6k
bracelt of quickness 5-7k
cloak of flames 40-45k
clok of crystaliene waters (however u spell it) 30k
seb berserker cloak 12-15k
shortblade of lightning 10k
copper hammer of striking 8-12k
fleshgrinder 15k

those are just a few prices

Not totally right ;)

These spauldors are for medium races only, but Vah Shir and Barbs count as both large AND medium race.
No large (ogr/trl) or small (dwarves, gnm, halflings) race only can wear it.

Was on a raid in the Hole on Sat Aug 23 when these showed up. Guildie named Fardar got the roll for them. They have sold in the bazaar on Kane Bayle for 10k...which seems very high but thats usual for it.

there are typically 2-5 of these in bazaar at all times on tholouxe paells, i see them for 3,500 and 4,000 all the time, they sell out quickly, then there r more up.... i think the hole might have a lot of extra activity on my server or something...
What about big/small races?

Is ther an equivalent shoulder piece that is wearable by big or small races? I was almost ready to pack up and go to the hole to get these only to see Ogre shaman cant wear. I still use Chokidai Shoulders, ok resists and nice WIS , but seriously lacking in AC compared to these. Obviously the weight means squat to a class that can buff to 255+ STR. What is a good upgrade to my shoulders that is fairly obtainable.

On an aside, does the Shawl of Protection still drop from Dracolich in PoF? AC 10 +35 all resists.
Thanks in advance.

Well if monks (leather) can use these then why did iksar warriors (and other iksar) get exclusivly axed from being able to wear these. This makes upgrading our Trooper Scale shoulders almost impossible to do without a full scale raid and same durn lucky dice. I just do not get it.

The restriction is based on size, not the item being plate/leather. Only "human sized" shoulders can wear this... Ogres and Trolls also cannot wear this item.

No it's called Iksar get hosed. Some things are considered plate and therefore
no iksar. There seems to be no ryme or reason to this though. Hero Bracer is plate fine, but a serp bracer? Why not all bracers? My Iksar can wear Jade Inladed Spaulders, but not these. WTF?

This is a great place to hunt for xps and the loot for casters and the chance for spauldors makes it even better.

I was on a guild raid in the Hole this weekend and these dropped off a rock golem near the entrance right where you make the first jump down. We were down there hunting for a good 6 hours straight, killing golems ratmen, revenants, and elementals almost nonstop and only one set dropped. I would call that a rare drop. I felt sorta guilty taking them, though, because I was the lowest level character on the raid (44 bard) and not even a true tank. What's really sad is that these buggers are so darn heavy that I'm constantly encumbered. Next investment--strength jewelry.

It has it listed that these can drop off elemental warriors. But every post so far indicates Crusaders or better. Has anyone ever seen these drop off a warrior?

I am fortunate to have this item. I listed this as the top choice on shoulder slot items for my Ranger. It was either this or Barbed Ringmail Shoulderpads. No tough choice there. hehehe
I think the plus 10 to all saves would realy come in handy on higher levels. Oooo but it is sooo heavy !!!

These dropped off a rock golem last night for my guild as we were clearing down towards High Scale Kirn from that area with the sign that says "More Than Mushrooms." We killed tons of elementals and golems. This was the only pair that dropped all the way down, and I was the lucky winner out of 10-15 people rolling. I did see somebody auctioning to buy these for 50k and a CSS in gfay the other day. Probably because they were desperate, but I think they normally go for around 30k. They ARE rare. Out of 3-4 Hole trips (once even down to kill Master Yael), this was the first pair I'd seen.

well you got lucky then. or i'm really unlucky. been raiding the hole a lot lately hoping for these and no drops. 1 55+ group. about 14-16 days in here in the last month at 3-12 hours at a time. no shoulders (though i've got earthen blades and elemental binders out the wazoo) we did get an awesome bow off a golemn though.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 01 2001 at 5:49 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) EXACTLY: I went in with a 6 man party and we got 2 shoulder drops. Ultra Rare my A$$, it sure aint worth no 36k.

RE: hmmm
# Jul 17 2002 at 2:34 PM Rating: Decent
correction, the are the 2nd best heavy a$$, resist gear shoulders that drop, maybe... heh

I lost the roll on a set of these last night, dropped off a rat warrior. It's cool though because the group I had are all friends =~)
Funny thing is the monk won the roll on these... they weigh more than he does! haha

Personally I think these are somewhat limited due to the high weight (no way a monk would wear them) and the fact that no small races can wear them. IMHO, there are better shoulders out there if you consider who can wear them and how much lighter they are. That's not to say that if I were a Vah Shir or Barb, that I wouldn't give 'my left one' for these... =~P

The last two hole raids ive been on two of these have dropped. Great shoulders. Dont' care much about the weight at 210str and the resists are invaluable. Perhaps ive been lucky with the drops. Sell for 25k and from what i understand are easy to sell. Mine are not for sale so i dunno. /shrug

Was there last night 12 April 01. I had a blast and the exp was quite nice. This zone has a 25% bonus to exp due to peeps never fight here. Was here for about 4 hours with 2 groups of 5. I was the lowest (46 Paladin) of both grp's. Main tank in my grp was a 60 War. The drops we received were The Spaulders (VERY NICE and very rare) I was second highest roller =( . Also everyone received an Elemental Binder (Very Common), Few of the Loam Encrusted pieces and I believe 2 Smoldering Brands (I got one).

I too will confirm they are random. For the longest time I heard they were dropped by the golems but never saw them, though I've slaughtered tons of golems. Today, as we headed towards the city, we killed a ratman warrior who dropped these shoulders. Go figure.

I, too, got my Imbued Granite Shoulders off of a random Golem, very near the entrance. Right before you get to the courtyard of the first building you enter, you fight where there is a small "gully". Our puller pulled a Golem from the courtyard and it dropped these Awesome Shoulders. Although a bit heavy, nearly 20 stone, the AC and stats ROCK. I loan them to our guild tanks when we do Naggy or Vox (since I am too high for these 2 dragons), they love them. They say they help resist the castings from these two dragons immensely. Also, I wouldn't take 50K for them.
