Someone did a poor job at Forging the pic of the dusty breastplate, sad that somone can't even take a real picture. My newbie halfling warrior is wearing one of these, seems they sell for around 600pp on Quellious but they are indeed annoying to obtain.

**This is a post I found from a different forum*


First and foremost, a tracker is absolutely *required*. More trackers placed in the corners will speed it up though.

You can try to get lucky and catch some of the names as they roam by
(I know the general location of the named in the SE corner, but I still miss them 75% of the time).

OK, there are 3 corners that have spawns in them: The Southeast, Southwest, and Northwest.

The Southeast is the beginning of the cycle, and as soon as the named/PH for that corner drops, the named/PH for the southwest will spawn, when that one dies, the named/PH for the NW spawns, and then back to the Southeast.

If you have multiple people camping the cycle, you should spread your trackers to the corners and keep them there, then put your heavy hitters in the southwest corner, one healer in the SE, and maybe one nuker in the NW (cenobite heals and nukes, so it's a pain to melee him down by yourself). If done right, and you can track and kill quickly, a cycle can actually be done in less than 2 minutes. I did it one time with me (cleric), my bard friend, a druid and a wizard. The druid pulled for the SE and SW, the Wizard nuked the giants, and the bard and I took care of the NW corner, we were doing a full cycle every couple of minutes or so.

The Southeast corner has all goblins. The unnamed PH here is "a" goblin raider. Must have the a.

The Southwest corner has all giants. The PH here is a Mountain Giant Hillock, which sometimes can be a little tricky to pinpoint.

The Northwest corner has all Burynai. The PH here is a burynai miner, which is super common in the zone, but not in that corner.

There are about 5 individual named mobs that may spawn in each corner, as well as one placeholder. Some of the items you get from the lesser named mobs (goblin trailblazer's knife, goblin-head spear) sell for good cash at merchants (50pp+). Otherwise, the "good" spawns (grand cenobite, blugtuggin) are just a matter of luck.

**Dustback Spawns in the NW corner**

Just wanted to reply on the following statement of the original post : 'a tracker is absolutely required'. Although a tracker may be very useful, it is not really necessary. Im a shaman, and I have done the cycle a couple times already (solo), always without tracking of course, and have no problem finding the mobs. The mobs on the cycle only roam around within a certain boundary, and only the NW corner is a large territory. Moreover, the mobs always seem to follow the same route/pattern, so after a while you know where they will be. Checking out this pattern is also a good way to determine which one is the PH, if more than one are up.

Note to druids: if you've just come from the SE corner and you're looking for the Hillock placeholder, it will always be the topmost one on your tracking list (since we only get one way to sort it - by most recent).

Thanks for the info Blackdeath - I am sure people have known about this for a while but have been farming the items for themselves. Finally someone who can see past the greed.

I have crossposted this info to hopefully help others get some nice gear.

I collected 4 Dusty BP (and about 20 other items)while trying to get my med totem - sold all for the price of 250 - 350. I know this is low but it is a fair price as it is not a hard item to get, it is Lore, and as Tallon-Zek is full of Twinks of loading cheap gear. Had immediate sales on each occasion.

Hmm whose farming ??

I may be wrong and do not wish to start a major discussion, but IMHO farming is the act of camping an area for the sole purpose of making money, keeping others from the opportunity of obtaining an item other than purchasing it from the farmers, and thus flooding the market with the same items lowering the value of that item and taking the joy from many of going out and procuring the item on their own... whew !

The statement "while trying to get my med totem" qualifies what that person was doing... attempting to complete an objective. My guess is they moved on once thier objective had been reached.

As of today with the patch this bp has an icon to it. It's actually very nice looking :) is a little bit lighter than the charred guardian bp and has lots of designs on it.

I know people will believe what they want, but I got one last night helping some guildies with the med totem "circle" (got 4 totems btw). There are quite a few mistypings on armor pieces that are new, thats why they have patches. The ac rocks, but I think I shall keep my Ro BP. It looks better than the dusty, which looks kinda dark blueish with green highlights on a dwf, but not as cool as that sounds, kinda ugly. There isn't that much difference between the AC and I really dont wanna give up my str bonus for sta and hps. Besides, did I say that it is ugly, hehe, not quite as ugly as the treeweave, which I would wear if it were dwf equippable, DAMMIT ;^)

Hey to all you who think this is a fake. I sent in this pick after Dusty dropped it 3 times in a row on me. All i did was copy and paste the image in mspaint. Sorry to disappoint all you fools but this is just how it dropped. Not sure if i could produce a fake if i wanted to, **** i couldnt even figure out how to sign it without it looking all screwed up ;p

Wearablity is a simple math problem.
If Class A can wear this they must be of Race X but if neither Class A or Race X is not listed they cannt wear it.

This chest piece drops off a rare spawn named "Dustback" in the Frontier Mountain. He looks like an ordinary burynai. You have to trigger the FM rare spawn cycle to get him to spawn he will not spawn everytime. I equipped this BP and yes it does not have a graphic so you look naked with it on. After the last two patches he drops this this item has been recently added.

RE: i think fake
# Jan 13 2001 at 3:35 PM Rating: Default
There is a rare spawn badger thingy in Frointer Mountions, called Dustcaller, or something like that, (drops Dustcallers Crystal Ball or soemthing like that). Incompatible race/class combos are pretty common.
Not fake. :p

My group acquired 4 of these last night, which was one for each of us because they are lore. The item drops off a named burynai, Dustback, in the NW corner of the zone.

The Dustscryers Crystal Ball drops off of a goblin in the SE corner of the zone. It's not the same mob.

This BP is a great item.. the AC on it is in the top 20 no drop breastplates in existence. Small races rejoice. :)
dumb, but true

This is very real, and the photo isn't a fake. killed him 2 times and both times it dropped, i just laughed hard when it had monk on there and they can't wear it cause of race restriction..

It's just really sad that it's not a fake :(

looks pretty much like crafted

I scored one of these the other day and tossed it onto a female woodelf warrior. To my delight and supprise she became topless (still wearing the green thong bikini suit) Am hopeing to find some other gear that has no graphics to toss on her so she will look like a newby and have some sweet armor on LOL
RE: No graphic?
# Jan 22 2001 at 9:28 PM Rating: Decent
Silversilk leggings & Feathered leggings for the legs will get you partway there... (Feathered gives +7 sta, so your sta will be pretty high.)
Bone Legplates are also no-graphic, I think.
Bone Armplates, I think... but I could be wrong about those. (+5 str, but -4 dex... ouch.)
Sleeves of the Ancients are another possible for the No Graphic look... but they're No Drop, so your warrior will have to loot them herself, and they're a very sought-after item.
Last possible for sleeves are the Azure Sleeves. Again, I'm not sure if they give the bare arm look.
As for the wrists... well, the jewelcraft stuff is No Graphic... don't know much else that is though.

Have you ever tried using a bitmap to jpeg converters to post images on the web? It puts fuzzy **** over text in a lot of cases, depending on color. Quality of graphic is not a pointer to it being fake.
Come to think of it, it's amazing. About half the items in this database have a comment from some child saying it's a fake.

As far as I can see it is plate classes and the ever-elusive non-Human non-Iksar Monk. Please change the text that accompanies this screenshot, I almost lost it seeing something better than a RS chestguard dropping in FM off 'creatures'. It is Bard not Rogue.

RE: Rangers can wear plate
# Apr 13 2001 at 12:08 AM Rating: Default
Bottom line is: there's no consistancy in the way Verant names items. Rubicite breastplate also comes to mind. Although named "plate", they are technically chainmail since rangers and rogues and shamen can wear them. I remember reading a post quite some time ago from Abashi saying that rubicite is indeed chainmail even though it appears as plate on the person wearing it.

Can't always go by the name when you try to classify what type of armor something is.
