these greaves are between 12-20k on MM server...reason being is there are pretty rare...VS can drop one of many leg pieces.

i got mine for 15k

saw someone auction a pair for 6k and by the time i sent my tell to him they were gone...poof

Even if the clicky effect was a 5 second cast time it would still be too long...

oh well i am extremely happy to be wearing these pants now myself and as icing on the cake my good friend finished his epic (wizzy) with the same VS kill :)
useful in a fight?

i dont know aobut u but in 10sec i can sit down and mem a a spell and start casting it and probably finish. with a 10 sec cast time i would say the effect is useless(unless u are a joker. IE see other post)
got mine

i got mine the other night and i must say they rox. great stats(some of the best as kunark armor goes) good ac(as rangers go) but the effect, come on plz VI make it somin good. i would be happy if i could right click this and make food that would be cooler then cancel magic. all this effect leads to is "i proced my pants jokes"..

Well thereare better effects out there, but I have one thing to say about this effect that is very nice. Removing damage shields from mobs. Dosent seem like much, but when you get to the big boys that have some decent damage shields, this is nice to have as an effect and not use up a spell slot for it. Pull with it, or let your tank beat on it for a minute while you hit the mob with this, then jump in with the rest of the melees. Dropping a damage shield (not a 1pt ds, etc) can save a half a bub on ten tanks tanking a mob on a raid, or 1 whole person worth of health.

While there are certainly better effects out there, cancel magic as a clickable effect is quite handy because (as with all clickables) it saves that spell gem slot. Sometimes it's necessary in a battle, but at that point it's a ridiculous bother and could be dangerous for your group if you have to stop fighting to hunt for it in your spellbook.

I for one hate having to keep cancel magic up for those here-and-there mobs that require dispelling. These greaves are lovely on their own, and CM is a handy bonus. But that's just my little opinion. ;-)
# Aug 27 2002 at 1:01 AM Rating: Decent
on a PvP server these rock.
alot of times PKers come for u during or right after a mob is dead, yer low on mana and 9 times out of 10, u dont have dispell up. wiping someones SoW or buffs while they trying to kill you is great =D, now i just need to get some for myself (and they beat the heck out of kromrif millitary legs )

Just thougth ide be one of the few ppl who posted useful info instead of junk (ie VS is as hardas trak and BS)

these legs r abt 15-30k depending on server now

The bp is abt 35k-40k

VS is no where near trak NO where even close at all

VS is a P*ssy. He can eb done easily with 10-12ppl if they know what there doing now u can stick 30 idiots in his lair and die before VS is even at 80%
Trak takes a big raid to do not as big as ToV stuff but larger then arena keal some where in between

anyways hope this info helps

i know the original post is somewhat old, but id just like to update on the VS situation. VS as he said is a complete p*ssy. You can easily do him with like 1 group, that is if you know what youre doing. But if youre new to doing VS you might wanna bring 2 groups for safety reasons. But yea he's very weak and 1 group is sufficient enough to do him.

cancel majic on self or Target ?.

# Feb 11 2002 at 8:01 PM Rating: Decent
Either 1, you can target yourself, and you can target others, so it works on either one, it's an effect not a proc.

Do you have to be in an "uber" guild to get this item? Also, anyone know the PC on these legs as of 10/9/01 on the Prexus server? I know this wont be enough, but I have about 14k saved up, and I'm still saving for these legs.

There's pick-up Venril raids quite often (say, monthly) on Fennin Ro. I've been on one, just for the heck of it, though I had no chance to getting my epic materials or these (they didn't drop anyway). These probably go for 20-40k, depending on server.
RE: .
# Jan 23 2002 at 2:17 AM Rating: Decent
this guy is dropped once a week, prolly about 20 50+ ppl could take him down. so to answer your question, you dont have to be in an uber guild
Why does it cost so much?
# Sep 20 2001 at 11:59 PM Rating: Default
I was just curious Why do these things cost more than the Bp I was looking at the BP an it was 37k something unless I read it wrong.

About 99.9% of these prices are wrong. NEVER BELIEVE THEM. These are worth 3-5k
#REDACTED, Posted: Dec 31 2001 at 3:30 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) 1.) Because of the difficulty of the mob they drop from.
RE: Why does it cost so much?
# Dec 12 2001 at 8:48 PM Rating: Decent
These are more than the bp because these drop off a harder mob than what the bp drops off of, its all about the rarity and hardness of getting stuff

So, what your saying is....that Venril HARDER to kill then Trakanon!? smokin'. Put the pipe down before you post, and don't grab a bottle of hooch either. Have you ever even been on a trak raid!? Me thinks...naw.

Because there are morons who are trying no rip other pple off, they probably have it in their backpack right now trying to sell it off for waaaay more than's its worth.

I'd say about 30kpp tops for this item.
RE: Why does it cost so much?
# Oct 08 2001 at 11:50 PM Rating: Decent
Umm the real Venril Sathir (not the one for the epic) is about as tough as Trakanon. HE lifetaps for some insane amount of damage(enough to kill my 48 ranger in one shot, if he is unbuffed), and casts it ever few seconds. Not as good as a complete heal but also destories the unlucky ******* who has him agro'ed. For the kill it is worth that much.
Beside ranger leggings that have that much AC are few and far between.

A 48 Ranger should be shot on sight even trying to get in on a VS kill. Don't goto KC until at least 52.

Went there with the ol' boy at 48 myself, didnt do to bad. Dont worry, you wont be shot for trying it, not so easy to get a group though... As for waiting till 52??? I was pretty much done with KC at 51, Velks = Much better exp, and is doable as well.

he isn't nearly as tough as trakanon...or else trak is easy as hell. needed: 58+ warrior to be main tank/agro, some chanter to chain rune on him so VS' LT doesn't land. when main tank has all the agro a bunch of melees (first time i went in I was a 34 ranger lol) come in and hit him in the back so they don't get riposted. all the while any healer classes are healing the main tank, when VS is about 30-40 health all nukers nuke the hell out of him. VS went down in about 2 mins, dropped gnarled staff, shammy legs and cleric legs.

I was told his lifeproc is an AE spell. which makes all the difference. is it single target or area effect?
RE: Why does it cost so much?

It is single target.

He uses the same type (area wise i mean) as Maestro in Hate does, it's a cone shape, Hitting everyone in a 4-5ft radius in front of him, so MAKE SURE the enchanter(s) you have on the chain-rune detail AREN'T standing right next to the MA. I saw a friends VS Raid wipe 3 times cause idgit chanters/clerics were sitting in the lifetap range and went down after 2-3 taps hit them. /sigh

It's AE. All the melee were standing in the back because his LT hits everyone he is facing.

If any of you only knew how much time that a programmer must spend looking at the stupid code for this game, you might just cut them a little slack for taking a short cut and not always making fun of the way it looks as far as the races go. the class part is the important part Ogre god some people are stupid!!!!

ok in the very beginings of the game before beta every race could be every class that explains the troll ranger and he barbarian wizards or even the iksar paladins

It is a clickable effect. Target yourself to use on yourself, target someone else to use on them, target a mob to use on... Well, you get the idea. ;)
