Plague Rat Tails now sell for only a couple silver to venders, eliminating a nice source of plat to newbies, especially on that server

Why would they bring down the price on this? It made it so much more fun to play right outside of your city with a new character than always in the tutorial. I think they should up it back to a plat

Because high levels were farming them instead of lowbies.

Confirmed on Druzzil Ro as well. They nerfed a good income source.

Plague Rat Tail sells for 1 plat 9 gold 0 silver 5 copper when offered to Sateal Deirosap vendor in the bazaar by level 2 human monk with 143 cha... no bazaar price available on bertox server... so must be plentiful enough not to be sellable... hehe...
1pp each

each tail is worth 1pp
Nice stuff for everybody

A few of these items and you can afford a nice piece of armor at the Bazaar. It helps when you want to increase your cash hoard quickly without going into the dungeons.

On Prexus, I get about 1pp, 7gp, and some change.

# Dec 18 2003 at 2:28 PM Rating: Decent
Price has been nerfed on live servers as well. 1.71gp

What was the point in nerfing this?

If they are going to cut the price by 90% at least they could have made them stackable
Any Rat, pp value

twice had these dropped in Qeynos Hills off ordinary rats. Worth 1+ pp each
Misty Vet.....

In all of Misty Thicket, I've only seen these drop offa Diseased Rats. I'm sure it drops offa other mobs in other zones, but I'm pretty sure you have to do The Diseased near RV ent.....
Plauge Rat Tails are on EVERY rat

Plague Rat Tails are on every rat, not just the ones listed above. I've gotten them of Large Rats, Giant Rats, Diseased Rats, Sewer Rats, Large Field Rats, Giant Field Rats, etc. They sell well and are useless except for monetary purposes
Infected Rats

They're also now found on "An Infected Rat" in the Toxxulia Forest
SoE's gift to newbies
# Jan 28 2003 at 9:56 AM Rating: Excellent
What to do with a Plague Rat Tail?! NPC merch buys them at about 1 pp each. SoE's gift to money-starved newbies since they drop (rarely, not common like what is listed above) off of rats in the newbie areas. Nuff said.
in S Qeynos also

Looted off a Sewer Rat in South Qeynos. No idea what its for though
Thurgadin, too
# Jul 20 2003 at 10:32 AM Rating: Decent
I've also had these drop off the scuttle rats in the Thurgadin Mines. Seems to be if there are rats, there are these.

While I don't think I've gotten one from there yet, I suspect the giant rat in the Kaladim mines could drop this as well.
