I'd expect to see people price it at 10 to 15k, but in reality, it would probably sell for 5 or 6.

I've watched the price on the "Queen's Carapace" for a couple weeks. I was able to buy it for 30k. Maybe with all the uber guilds this is an easy drop now.

Actually... mithril is just another type of metal, like steel. It is suppose to be VERY rare in Middle Earth as what did exist of it has mostly been taken and subsequently lost by the dwarves. Yes, the mithril coat that Bilbo gives to Frodo is a chain shirt but, mithril could be worked in the same way as any other metal so it could be made into plate if you managed to pry it out of the cold, dead hands of a greedy little dwarf. =P

Bought this for 20k a couple weeks ago. After about three hours i did some auctions with it to the bazaar channel: got about 30 tells offering 15-20k since it is such an incredible twink bp for war/pal/sk. About five minutes later there were a few 30k offers and i ended up taking 30k and a soulstripper for it making a 15k resell. Anyways because of its rarity and no rec/req level with these stats it is worth 20kish on pc on ayonae ro although realistically if you wait a bit you can get closer to 30k np.

Hmm, i am wondering whic is better, crafted armor (the 51ac, 5sta, 10wis, 40hp/mana bp's)or this? Basically ac and wis vs str/dex hp and save? Any ideas? For a paladin
RE: Carapace v. Crafted
# Sep 27 2003 at 5:12 AM Rating: Default
if you're just looking at buying a bp, i would go for the carapace .the 15sta ,75hps and saves make it much more worthwhile for me, then the ac and wis . hp > all in my opinion .

well it highly depends on several factors. I'll do my best to list em out for ya.

1) Your Race & Diety
2) Your current lvl, resists, HP, AC and other stats
3) Your main role in groups & raids, as in are you the main tank in groups most of the time or not? How about raids? Whats your role during raids?
4) Whats most important to you?

This is a great BP, only a little bit lower AC than say the Blood Ember BP for SK's but with far different stats & much lower weight.

I would honestly look to either win this during a raid or to win a different No Drop BP during a diff raid. Buying a high-ish end BP is not a cheap thing to do and hardly ever returns you equal or close to the same pp you spent on it. There are some really good BP's out there that are not hard to get with just a single grp, so I'd do a little more searching & research if I were you. Think long and hard about what you need. take off your current BP and see what your stats are like, see what you'll need to work on, etc... Also, take off your weapon(s) for now and see what your stats are like when the BP is off too, that'll give you a better long-term idea of what you'll need b/c weapons change at a pretty good rate, dont get yourself locked into something you'll only regret later on. Just my 2cp

Why not go get this BP with a single group? The Queen is somewhat rare and all, but she is doable by a sigle group. With 65 druid 62 warrior 65 pally 62 monk 63 mage and 55 bard we took her easily. I was expecting a hard fight since we had no slowers, but we didn't really need them. Heck, I think we had more problems with the 8 mini spiders that spawned when we killed her than with the Queen herself.

All told though this is a rather nice bp. It could use a bit more ac, but, for the most part, hp is more important anyway. And it has a lot of hp. Our paladin in the group prefered his Skyshrine bp, and the warrior his Vindi bp, so the bard walked away very happy, heh.
not bad at all....
# May 08 2003 at 1:57 PM Rating: Decent
just to add my 2 cents worth..

15 sta.. nice.. 75 hp.. nice... 37 ac.. grrr.. little low....15 str .. not bad...5 to all saves.. nice..... over all i would wear it over most other pre/HoT/velious quest Bps and nice part is you get your guild a few of them and loan them to the newer plate classes till they get Hot/Kael drops.. which are realy rare..

GOOD BP, anyone who says otherwise is a fool.. besides the wench's camp is eiser to hold than HoT or Arena..

#Ruri, Posted: May 30 2002 at 12:45 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The reason why druids and rangers cant wear this, is mainly, it comes from an animal. (to make plate) You have to have padding of a sort so the metal wont cut you open =P, generally the padding, is from bears, etc.
RE: the armor
# Sep 29 2002 at 12:45 PM Rating: Good
Actually that is pretty shoddy logic (this is for the first poster obviously) as druids are a leather class, which ALWAYS comes from animals. Rangers can also wear leather. Can wear the phase spider carapace which comes from the same sort of creature as the queen.

The real and only reason that they can't wear this is because sony verant didn't want them too. This item is tagged as Plate class.

The reason why druids and rangers can't wear this is because it is considered a PLATE item.

Druids are a leather class.
Rangers are a chain class.

Elysian armor is DRU only, just becuz it looks like chain doesnt mean its CHAIN class.

Queen spider's carapace logically harder than other spiders, make it less flexable thus only plate class can wear, if you look from this point of view.

When we killed her she did drop two to our amazement. We read up on the mob and got ready to kill her when we noticed she was on track. We've been back many times since (and cleared her room) with no luck in her spawning. She must have a PH and be a very rare spawn because I've never seen her up again. I've had mine for probably 8 months or more and just going to upgrade it soon.

To qualify any statements, and no, I did not scroll down to read all the posts you refer to.

While a lower level character would certainly flip, I'm sure they were referring to the characters who can actually attain it. The five classes who could most make use of this, and can generally wear chitin, are Monks, Rogues, Rangers, Druids, and Shammies. However, this item is limited to plate classes only, who should have something much better by this level. Basically, getting together a big raid just to pass stuff down to someone's twink suxxors.

Yea but at the level to attain this, you have a number of better options on AC, and AC is far more important than strength, dex etc. The resists and HP are what makes this worthwhile to someone who can attain it. The AC has much to be desired; the Str/dex/agi isn't of high importance compared with HP/resists.

I am trying to get a hold of one to replace my blood ember BP by virtue of it's HP, though I do not expect to keep it long. While the BP is good, there are a number of better options. All of the quest BPs, Vindi BP, etc. all have more AC and comperable/better HP (And Vindi also has some niceass resists, +15 to all is hard to beat).

Ok, Im really sick of people making this blanket statement. I know a ton of level 60+ Warriors who do not have a BP anywhere near as good as this. I've raided Hate at least 30 times, spent countless hours in both Kael and HoT and so far I've seen ONE Indo BP drop out of all of that. That means out of thousands of kills a single Warrior usable BP has dropped. I didn't get it, obviously. Out of the 7 Warriors in my guild which raids HoT regularly, one has a Vindi BP, one has Thurg, one has Hate and the rest of us are stuck with Engraved Royal Velium BPs. And as a matter of fact I would actually say that for all but a main tank, this is better than everything short of a SS BP simply for resists and HPs. Just because there are better BPs out there does not mean that everyone has them. Plate (specifically Warrior BPs) are among the rarest drops out there up until you can kill Vindi on a regular basis. This is a great BP even for Warriors if they don't have SS or better. And the fact that they can be passed on when something better drops makes them ever better. I plan on taking a group or 2 down to farm these for the guild soon.

Oh yea, "by the level to attain this" is a really dumb statement for this item since even guilds who can barely handle Kael Arena can handle this camp with a few groups.

im a 54 sk with stonewall mail this would be an upgrade a major upgrade as for "this item is limited to plate classes only, who should have something much better by this level" is a wrong statement. not everyone that can join a raid to kill this has better SK fear bp is 30ac and not nearly the stats this is. this would make an excellent DE SK bp cause it has str and sta as well as 5 to all resist 20 to pois. i am going to make sure i get to kill this queen as often as possible till i can get one, even if i have to lead it. DN isnt as hard as you may think one group can do alot here if they are mostly 51+ just need to work together and follow directions to the "D".

I'm a 58 Warrior. All my Armor is Thurg or better except my BP. I haven't even seen a Warrior BP drop in Hate in all the tons of times we've cleared it. Our prime Tank has Vindi BP now, but our seconadary tank is in a Hate BP. It will probably be a long time before a Thurg or HoT Plate BP drops and is given to me. This BP would rock. Great STA, Great Saves, nice AC. I really wish people would quit assuming that every warrior in a big guild is in Myrmidons or Warlords. BPs are rare, and this is better than most.

Raltaas was fun....she summons, does monk style hits for 500+, and seems to draw every spider in the area to help her. One of the clerics that won a BP dropped in a single round from her flurry attacks, thanks to Verants wonderful new and improved cheal aggro =P (/rude VI). Post fight expect to deal with about a dozen level 50ish spiderlings that she spawns when she dies. Fun!!

well only thing I got to say to you is... lmao fool, you obviously didnt have a SK on hand in your grp(s) when you fought her.... or your SK is a sorry sap who doesnt know his spells.... We SKs are the future tanks of 60+ no warrior can hold aggro the way a high end SK can, we have so many aggro spells that it just aint funny... for instance our voice spells, it adds aggro to the target you cast it on (hense: on your tank) with them taunting and that spell aggro is pretty hard to break especially if the SK casting it is the tank, We SKs have such a deep line of strong taunt spells at your grasp and so many SKs are just that weak and dont know thier class that they should move on to a non-caster class if you cant master the spells an SK gets you obviously dont solo much and dont know wtf your talking about... thats my 2 copper pieces

not meaning to make this a class fight.. but.. how does your SK handle that agro that he pulls?? o sucking down cleric manna faster than a merathon runer slams Gatorade... realy.. where did you get the idea that SK's will ever replace warriors at MT's? they can get as high AC and HP.. but when the time for Disciplines comes to play, well sk's just get owned by warriors.. NO offence to any SK.. GOD you all save our clerics buns all the time.. nothing like a quick hate spell to rip agro off a over zelios cleric or Wizzard.. but SK's have a long way to go before they replace warriors as Raid Main Tanks... O just to keep the flames to a minimum.. SK's are dam good tanks in xp groups..

Just a guess, but probably around the same time that you realize that Rangers, like Rogues and Shamans - who also cannot wear this item), will NEVER be able to wear plate armor. Given the classes who can wear this item, it's pretty obvious that Verant is considering this item to be Plate (well, except that they allow Iskar to wear it. I assume that's an oversight).

Following this logic, it could indeed be wearable by druid or ranger.

Example- BCP, is a carapace, druid can wear.
Druid Hate BP- is very much a plate BP

Druids and rangers cant wear cuz the description says they cant, who cares why?

Might as well snivel about the 60ac caster robes that drop in ToV...

Not every class can wear every item, this is a good thing. Get over it.....

Iksars can't wear metal plate. A carapace would be a large plate-like piece of shell or bone that wouldn't have the same heat properties of metal plate. Ergo, good for Iksars.

Iksars have such a limited choice of armor at this level anyway, Verant needs to have some armor that they can go for.

Ok, this is on permanent wish list. Probably won't ever see it though. :) (the onomatapeia above is to represent the sound of my tongue slapping the floor as I gazed in wonderment).
*cough* 30k?
# Mar 12 2001 at 11:59 PM Rating: Default
30k? Ya, right. RBGs are 200pp too. But really, who in their right mind would sell this BP? It's one of the best BPs in the game in my opinion - up there with matchless dragon BP and just as rare.

yeah, as you said no one would sell it. Someone in the raiding party would get this, or maybe a guild would sell it if they were all already too uber. Its just an arbitrary high nutty price for an item not likely to be sold.

I got efreeti boots at level 49 or so I would not have got anyway from a guild selling them for 9 k for plane of sky funds. Are they worth 9 k? Well they were for me since there was no other way I seemed to be getting them at the time. Really just doing some ghetto farming I came up with the 9 k in 3 days.. mostly selling the same 2 items that dropped in lake of ill omen.. over and over ; )

Gad though I wish i Had 30 k when someone was selling this, slap that thing on my cleric ; )

The POG BP's kinda kick this ones' **** for like very class though right?

Yes this is a nice BP and it cost a lot, but the thing is some people might just want to trade a Fungi covered scale tunic for this sucker, beside want do you wand more ac that can be subsuted or a armor piece that is the ac of 21 a few +s and -S and regenration witch is a realy good thing when you get the S*** bet out of you and your cleric is OOM or LOM?

It is your chose

Well, the thing with the Fungus tunic is, it's healing you 180 hp a minute. If you're the main tank and the mob is hitting for 150+ a swing, 16 extra AC might make it miss one more time a minute. Making this the right choice. But I'm not even sure if 16 ac really would help that much.

Wrong... grouped with a Shammy with Regrowth, and a 57 bard using whatever songs he used...

Regrowth + bard song + 55th level regen + Fungi = 60+ hp a tick... with Enchanter crippling and shammy slowing I was getting a CH once every 20 minutes in Seb.. was pulling D1 and D2 so there was no shortage of mobs.. On average I was at full health unless I did a multi pull of 3+.

So fungi is not just for soloing.

Well, assuming you are able to get a group with all the classes you need for 60hp a tick, I'd be happy with the higher AC and a good cleric Complete Healing me every 5 minutes. My Seb group usually consists of Me (58 Warrior), 60 chanter, 58 monk, 60 druid, 56 cleric, and 57 rogue, and we usually kick ***. In reply to the guy who said at the level you need to be to get this, you would have better... not true. Not everyone belongs to an Uber guild and not everyone has gotten their Planes BP or Velious Quest BP. I for one am using a Phase Spider Carapace and I'd love to get one of these. As for the Fungi Tunic, nice for soloing, but in a group, fighting mobs that double hit for 500, regen is almost pointless except for maybe between fights.

I'm in a pretty big guild and I don't have better than this. Plate BPs are pretty rare, especially the higher level ones. I'd be more then happy to see this. I'm currently using Engraved Royal Velium myself.

The fungi tunic is not a sufficent BP for a Tank, not even in a zone like Sebilis...
Even comparing a Fungi Tunic to the Queen's Carapace is pure blasphemy.

Fungi's are mainly used on plate classes when they don't have anything better. When grouped/raiding, AC is pretty much always preferred over regen. And this equipped over fungi would probably add 25 or more AC.

um the Stats are atmost better then the Red dragonscale bp which sells for 50-60k


And anyway if you were the class that can use it you would use it
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 13 2001 at 4:10 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Comparing this to red dragonscale breastplate? You're at best reading-challenged, and at worst a total moron.

Hard to say. Queen's rare, very tuff, and this BP is one of the better plate BP's that are tradeable.

I'd say it will be worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it, and another is willing to get to part with it =)
