I've been exploring the thought of the ranger archer-tank... I was out farming cash one day in RM, when I decided to try to hit the giants with archery from melee range, and it worked! So, on giants and other big-range boss mobs, rangers could make up for some of the lost AC for just being a chain class by using an item such as this and a high-AC sheild while pounding the guy with arrows. If you consider that rangers will probably run say... 200 AC behind a warrior when doing normal gear, why not use this (50 AC would come out to around 100 real AC) and a sheild (use something around 60ish? meaning 120) and you would be caught up, and still have far more damage output than any warrior ever will hope to have. Only problems are that we can be bashed/stunned (since you don't see any of those ever-so-elusive ogre rangers) and we don't have defensive disc... But hey, maybe the gained stats will make up for all that? It would be very interesting to know how that turns out.

it is a good idea, and is certainly true about being able to fire arrows at melee range with big creatures (thought i was only one who knew though, doh). However I reckon it isn't AC, or even HP that's most important on a tank, though obviously without either they'd suck. In my opinion it's being able to hold agro that really makes a tank, and sadly for ranger-tanking archery barely pulls any agro.

Wonderful thing about ranger spells. Level 9 : Flame Lick and Tangling Weeds will hold aggro

This is a very very nice item, good for any class!
also a focus effect

There is also a focus effect that is spell casting haste. It is equal to the mage summoned ring.
Nice AC

Wow, there must be a lot of pages in that book to have 50ac.

Look at the AC!!! WARRIOR ITEM!!! just kidding...

These are not from Maiden's Eye... these are from the other guys... the ones in Vex Thal... the uberific zone that's prolly worse than Veeshans Peak, although I'd love to hear what some of the guilds compare this zone to...

The bosses in here are tough, but nothing that a guild at this level of the game should have a problem with. In fact some of them, *cough*DXVT*cough* are quite trivial. The real difficulty is spending dozens of hours getting your key (which everyone has to do) and then spending 8 or so hours clearing the entire zone to get to the bosses.
