I got this shield and equip it with my Soul Defiler and it makes for a great combo stats-wise. However, I got this shield while soloing in CoM after the revamp. Since the revamp MoSS drops like candy off quite easy yard trash along with tons of other "rare" items before the revamp. This shield dropped relatively quickly. I haven't been back to try to get another one (I was there camping for epic on my chanter at the time) since I figured it wasn't that rare anymore. Is the price still +10K? That would be insane since it drops frequently.

Just saw one for sell on Terris Thule for 3k. And he was a trader mule that had just bought it from a guy putting out OOCs to sell it. So even though it seems to be more rare than say the MoSS it's still no where near a 10k+ item.

A friend of mine gave this to me, as he couldn't use it. Since I use 2HS primarily, I kinda threw it aside. Then while auctioning, I had it in my bag of things to sell. And low and behold a customer offered me 1K for it. I knew it sounded kinda low, but I was short on cash. So finally I decided to sell it, and I go LD. I jump on here to quickly check the average price, and see it's around 20K. Even if I don't get that for this, I'm lucky I didn't sell it for a mere 1K. No wonder he was pressuring me.

It's a nice shield, but is it really worth 10k in today's market? I just put it on my 23 SK twink :).

Just sold this last month for 10k. I dont really think it is worth it but who am I to argue with capitalism.

Gaah cant believe Im seeing all these posts about needing 8 gillion people to kill reavers? 1 good group can do them, and as far as Rak goes-just smack everyone with high FR gear and kill him with a bunch of melee-- Did it tonight, only got off 2 of his AE's the whole time, took 5mins maybe

I love my shield, but makes me wonder why they would name a shield Atramentous (meaning black as ink) which sounds great for a shadow knight.. then make it a Bright GOLD.

I know there are only so many models, and having a sarnak battle shield look alike doesn't totally suck, but its just silly. Like naming something Golden Greaves of Brightness and then coloring them blue. If anything I would think this should look like the Fearsome Shield =/

yeah.. just got this shield and i doubt anyone's even noticed the change from sarny yet =/
wish they would change things like that, and the soul binder only being seen from one side

I went on my first large scale raid on this place last night. Our intent was to help an Iksar Shammy be the first on the Drinal server to get the spear of fate (to anyones knowledge).

We killed the reavers with little problem as there were 24 of us. Lord Rak spawned and (tragically) our shaman didn't have the faction to complete this quest and his quest item was eaten!

So we killed Rak out of pure spite. Just sicced a couple level 49 Fire pets on him with clerics complete healing, and Enchanters chain runing and he dropped in less than 8 minutes. Too easy.

This shield was the only thing that dropped and I was the only shadow knight present in the raid. It was my good fortune that they were all generous enough to default this item to me. I love it!! This has to be the best SK shield in the entire game until you can get to Veeshan's Peak or the Temple of Veeshan.

Naggy raid times 2? pfft
# Aug 09 2001 at 12:25 PM Rating: Default
Naggy raid times 2? you gotta be kidding, my guild totally owns CoM every friday night, and we'll eventually get all our SKs this shield, so far I killed him 4 times and he dropped it 3 times, 4th time was for shammy epic so that doesn't count much for drops hehe, but hes easy, we kill him with 2 or 3 mage pets usually, and a bunch of healers, takes about 15mins

Just to let you know Reavers are really easy to kill only takes one good group to do it...Have done it many a times. 1 Cleric 1 Monk 1 Rogue 2 Mages and a Druid. Cleared all the Reavers just for the fun of it and then went and killed the Ornate Runed Shield dude for the Torch for the Mage epic. Reavers really aren't what they are cracked up to be <grins>.

This shield is a rare drop off rak'ashiir, common is ornate rune blade. Requires a very heavy raid party to get past all the reavers and adds to even kill this guy. Think nagafen raid x 2. Only actually need clerics and mages to kill rak, but the rest of the mobs are very hard to kill before respawns. Make sure your guild sham turns in the iksar child tear before attacking this guy or he wont drop the quest item.

Naggy Raid x2? That is overstatement by far.

Perhaps an overstatement in terms of Naggy, but perhaps it's hard to use 2002 twinkage and compare anything to the way fighting was in 2000.

Players equipped with average equipment now are using some gear that would have been considered beyond belief then.

Reavers are easy to kill with 2 50-55 groups.

Park groups close to water. Have monk pull inside castle. At 52, I can pull all either single or duo, and leave the reaver there. Clear, then pull reaver.

Move monk up elevator. Pull regular trash. Next pull should bring you 2 reavers. This will be the toughest part, fighting 2 reavers at same time. Don't waste time splitting them. Then pull another reaver. Then Rak'Ashiir's reaver.

Up to Rak'Ashiir, a tanks/shaman/cleric combination will work wonders. On Rak, go with mage/clerics and all buffs you can cast on the pets.
