Here are the drops for the new hotzones. At least the ones that have been discovered so far. For the ones marked "Undiscovered", the link may or may not be valid depending on if the item has been added to the Lucy database since I last updated this list. I'll try to keep tabs on the newly discovered ones and add them as appropriate.

Level 20: North/South Ro

Level 25: Solusek's Eye

Level 30: Blightfire Moors

Level 35: Stone Hive

Level 40: Dulak's Harbor

Level 45: Skyshrine

Level 50: Akheva Ruins

Level 55: Crypt of Nadox

Level 60: Riwwi

Level 65: Torden, Bastion of Thunder

Level 70: Ruins of Illsalin

Hopefully this stuff goes live without the No Trade tags on non-augments. Prior hotzone gear is tradeable. That said some of the AC is nice. However the +hp and mana is a joke compared to attuneables people can buy for cheap from SoF.

I think these items are wonderful how they are. Having to actually visit these zones to get the items is a plus instead of bazaar diving. Having them drop off random mobs is gift enough.

The aug in RoI is nice but if you don't already have better gear than the 2 waist items chances are you are not strong enough to group in that zone. Those mobs hit like mack trucks if you are undergeared.

The last set of hotzone gear (the Silverwing stuff) was all NODROP. And yeah, this stuff is, too.

I really dislike the whole formula they're following for the hotzone drops. Here, let's take a generically named aug, have it randomly drop anywhere in the zone, as well as two pieces of equipment, one for casters and one for melees, that are similar in stats for the same slot.

Why not mix it up a bit? My two cents.

These hotzone augs are nice.65 hp/mana aug should make RoI a pretty popular place now I would think.

Actually, on Test at least, the gear drops are now tradeable. Manaforge Ringlet, for example, is now tradeable. They might not all be updated yet in Lucy to reflect this, though.

Hrm, maybe the quested stuff is. I haven't bothered with the item + shard. And I must've been tired when I posted that... I had already augged my blightfire drop, hence why I said it was notrade. I think all of these non-augs are tradeable.

I know for certain that several of the drops were no trade to start, but now seem to be tradeable, i think it was changed. Intentionally or not, I dont know.

My thoughts are that, compared to the previous hot zone augs, these are generally poor. On the previous augs you had good reward for the risk, but a 65hp/mana aug from ROI is low risk for this zone.

Previously in AC/CT etc you hade 10ac 50hp augs, 8ac 40hp, 10ac 40 hp + 1 regen etc, these are far better than the augs on offer in this batch.

Do you mind if i put this information on the Wiki Hotzone page?

I am goofing on it as i have time and want to get it as a central repository of information for all hotzone stuff.

No, i am looking for information on the melee and caster drops, the aug information was already on the wikipagethingie, with a link to that post.

I just cleaned it up a bit to help people see what drops where.

kasandra, I just sent you a PM with a pretty extensive write up (similar to the one I did for this thread) for the last set of hotzone drops. I originally wrote it for my guild forums, but feel free to use it as you will.

There is also a great thread here that outlines the drops from all former hotzones. The thread is a little thin on info from the last 2 sets of hotzones, but with the information in this thread and with the info I PM'd to you, you should have everything you need.

Ok, i took some of that information and updated the Silverwing drops on the wikipage, let me know what you think of the format when you can.

Gonna work on the older ones as i can, however, i really should do some work today.

And bbot, your post and VW's are what got me started on this task, i hate having to resurrect old posts to get information when it can all be placed in one place for easy access.
