Prices Dropping

I bought this last night on The Rathe for 1950 pp. Prices are dropping, although I think that was a fairly good deal. I turned around and sold Acrylia BP for 1100 in 10 minutes. For 850 pp, I gain 9 str and 50 hp. I like that there are no wasted stats for my warrior. I hate paying for wisdom or mana. At that price, it's a good deal. It's ugly, but the game isn't about making a fashion statement.

I picked up one of these for 2k last night on Innoruuk. Agreed about wasted stats, it replaced a Ry'Gorr Battle Mail.

I still look rather fetching though. ;)

Barbed Ringmail VS Iksar Ceremonial Breastplate
# Apr 14 2002 at 3:37 PM Rating: Decent

As a 28th ranger i recently got one of these and is wondering if i should trade it for a Ceremonial Iksar BP?And would Barbed Ringmail be worth a Ikky BP and FBSS?

Alright...the Iksar Ceremonial BP is nice for the regen, however, when in battle IT BITES! I only use it when I need to ..and when it's safe where I can sit down. It's good at lower levels when things don't hit so hard, but when you start fighting the upper level creatures...definitely get something else.

I agree with Ahnyx, I think Iksar Regen BP is sweet at lower levels (1-20) but beyond that when you tend to group more, the lack of stats and AC, makes it no where near as useful as the Barbed Ringmail. However, the regen BP would be nice to have when soloing and low on hitpoints (out of combat)

sense new patch come out, the grey in Luclin drop a Bp named Shissar scaled

AC: +30 Agi: +15 Dex: +15 HP: +35 Mana: +35
Weight: 2.5
Classes: Ranger Shaman Cleric Paladin Shadowknight Bard Rogue Warrior
Races: All Races

Think about it, this bp is more common than barbed bp and much better states. also u can take it down by one person if the class and lvl is right. and u can do the EB necklace quest in there. if u want to sell let's take look: ppl in ec auc WTS barbed ringmail 6k, and WTB Shissar Scaled bp 14k paying cash! pst

Plz think about it: the named mob in UK drop this kind of rarly and pop rarly also. the named Shissar pop every 2 to 3 hrs if u kill these PH fast. and each time u will have chance to get this great loot, and name golem also. He droped awsome items for melee like tunic and seleeves! both of em r at same camp.

Shissar BP is much better yes, but not by, well much. Less str, more dex and agi, very nice, but it also costs a lot more (on prexus it does).

Barbed Ringmail goes for 5k on prexus, while Shissar BP is 15-20k.

Barbed 3-4k
Shissar 8k

Talk about a watered-down economy hehe.

I see PC crafted BPs with 30ac, str9, hp 15 (or something like that.. acrylia BP) sell for 3k also.. Barbed is the better option.

I just bought one of these on Terris-Thule fer 5k. I've been using Iksar Ceremonial BP up untill now just cause the regen effect is so nice. But I finally decided that I needed a BP for fighting in groups. At 49 I don't really solo that much stuff (except when farming), so I got Barbed Ringmail fer grouping. This works out great cause I can still throw on my Ikky BP during downtime to make my HP go up.

It is slightly better than the Treeweave in many aspects which I agree too, but the price of this item is a little too high. On the Rodcet Nife these go for 4k, this is reasonable mainly because you earn +5 ac and +50 hp and lose only 1 str. But paying 15k for this item is a little different story, not mentioning the new Luclin Armor is way better and drops off the same level mosters :P. Just my 2cps

this is a nice b/p especially for rogues =)

more hp to take more hits from agro

more ac to take less dmg from hits from agro

more str to cause more agro doing more damage =)
#Zaztik, Posted: Jan 18 2002 at 12:52 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Payed 4k for mine last night (1/17/02). Before this I was wearing Treeweave. Sure I lose 1str, but I gain 5ac, and 50hp (which rangers need). And this thing weighs 1/3 of the Treeweave's weight! Sweet :)

# Oct 09 2001 at 8:27 AM Rating: Decent
Well if you are a Pally, this is a nice piece to have. Most other BP are no drop and unless your guild can take out Trak your chances on a DW BP are slim to none. BP from Hate is like dropped once a year and Fear BP is crap. You can go to VL and camp this and get at least one to drop in a day, we had 3. Don't really like the look but hey, it has 30 AC. If one is smart, they will try to camp tents and pits as much as possilbe and get this and Sword of Blessing. Nice add to your 1HS.

Thorny Vine Breastplate is AC:26 9 STR 13 WIS 50 HP. Great upgrade for rangers...
#Raravis, Posted: Aug 28 2001 at 4:15 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Not Really (or at all), You lose 13 Wisdom trading off the Thorny Vine. And you only gain 4 AC. Plus Thorny Vine looks cool

New Value?
# Jul 06 2001 at 12:12 PM Rating: Decent
Anyone have any idea of the value of this item with the recent upgrades? I have one that I wear, but may be willing to sell it if it's worth enough platinum...

Looking at other armours out there (keeping in mind the races/classes that can wear this, and who/what drops it), this piece should be worth 15k+ IMHO.

I paid 8k for one yesterday on Tarew Marr. At 30ac I think it's a good deal but I expect the price on this to tumble fairly soon due to the extreme farming in Velk's Lab at present. If you can get 15k I would suggest taking it - they're appearing on the market pretty regularly now, mostly at around the 10k mark.

Don't forget the extra weight that Stonewood Mail has. I guess it all depends on what you want to use. Me, I have both, and wear the Stonewood Mail, mostly because the graphic for it is so much different. :)

Tpos is not very hard, trivial in fact -- but we had me 60 warrior 60 chanter and 59 cleric, low 50s rest of group. He hits hard but is easily slowed, and combine that with defensive it's rather pathetic. However, a group that gets him with adds without a good tank -- could be trouble.

Yeppers, it sure is 25ac 6strength - leader of Maxwells guild on Drinal server gave me one for a katana I had (they're a Japanese guild) and its pretty darn sweet, but the picture here shows it looking different from normal banded/ringmail/chainmail , is there anything I have to do to get it too look like dat? I am a wood elf ranger and had it on my High Elf cleric and it looks just like normal banded/ringmail/chain

Since I know a lot of people are missing out on it, I thought I should post this here. You have to turn Velious armor textures on or you can't see them. Here is how it's done:

Edit the file "eqclient.ini" in your EverQuest directory.

Change all the lines that read LoadArmor##=FALSE to LoadArmor##=TRUE

The ## just represent numbers. Some people may know this already, just posting it to help out those who don't know, because they are missing out.

It looks exactly the same as Rygorr and goes for something like 4 k on Saryrn Server (seen 5 k also)

#Shakaama, Posted: Aug 04 2001 at 12:08 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) There is no reason that this nigh statless piece of junk should take you a weaks worth of time of saving to buy it. I equate about 10k to a weeks worth of time. That's too much effort for this. The equivalent price on my server for a fungal 15k - 20k has a tremendous impact on the classes that can wear that, this doesn't have such an impact. Of course my server is a split server from two very mature servers so our prices my be drastically deflated from yours.

# Aug 06 2001 at 12:15 PM Rating: Decent
Im sorry, I dont think you have a clue what you are talking about.....
How many BPs are there that are tradable that have 30ac or more?
I cant think of very many.
Most higher end BPs are no drop, and gotten from the Velious armor quests. No twink is going to get them. No main is going to get them without a very good guild.
What does a fungi tunic have to do with anything? Its a 21 ac piece of crap. No warrior is gonna wear that. Stats mean nothing, AC is everything to a warrior.
Warriors are stuck with EB or Treeweaves, period, until their late 40's at least. Then MAYBE they will get lucky and pick up an Indi BP, or can go to SG, or DN, and pick up some of the BPs that drop in those places.
To be able to buy this for 15k would be a BARGAIN for any warrior who knows the frustration of having to wait to upgrade his 25ac BP.

This item drops from a named kobold named Tpos Icepaw inside Velketor's Labyrinth in the kobold area before Velketor's castle. Beware, the mob is very tough (HT 3 bubs of hp from a lvl 59 monk, hits mid 200 dmg), and can wipe an unprepared party easily.
