To recap the relevant points of these posts:

Drops from: Skeletal Guardian (only thing i've seen and heard of them dropping from, regardless of what it says up top)

Level for effect: Lvl 1 (again, disregard the info above). It's the only piece of Singing Steel armor that is not a clicky effect, nor is it a proc, it is a worn effect. Any level bard can equip this and breathe easy ... or not need to breathe rather.

Price: I've seen it for as low as 1100pp on Tholuxe Pealls, but usually 2k or more.

I just lost the roll on these while in a group camping the entrance area, only pulling from as far away as the left and right courtyards. My bard friend will be very sad since I would have given them to him rather than sell them.
Cheapest EB item...

Even at 750, ewhich is the highest they go for on my server (I found mine for 400 though), this are by far the chepaest permanent effect EB item you can buy. Trouble is, it's bard only, hehe.

Compare this to rebreathers or fishbone earrings that go for 2k or so, and it's a great deal for a bard.

Note, by the way, that description is wrong about needing to be level 45 to use the effect; you can use the effect at level 1.

I am watching singing steel gauntlets at the bazaar for a while. the gauntlets sold are all specified "worn" after "Effect:Enduring Breath".
Does it mean this effect won't be proc ?

Yes. "Worn" on any item means you will only get the effect if the item is equipped. "Permanent(worn)" means the effect will be permanent as long as the item is equipped.

Note that the minimum level (45) to get the effect listed on this page is incorrect; you can get the effect from this at level 1. It is the only piece of singing steel that has no minimum to use the effect; all other pieces have a minimum level of 45 to get the effect (and all other pieces are triggered effects, rather than permanent ones like this piece).

worn means you have to wear them for the effect, no clicky action. If you remove them the effect goes away.

Won the roll on these. Although I have a 35 Bard alternate, I would be willing to trade for Cobalt gear other than Gaunts as I already have.
Im on Terris-Thule Server.
Got these

Got these for 350p in bazaar when i was level 7 =) Pretty nice ac, bard is now 13 and has 657hp and 476 ac unbuffed if im not mistaken
works at level 24
# May 21 2002 at 12:00 PM Rating: Decent
level 24 bard here and these guantlets are working without casting.

#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 25 2002 at 4:39 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Let me clear something obvious up, the effect is just like the song but you don't have to recast it for probably about 10 minutes which means that is can be dispelled, also a bard at level 1 can equip these but you can't cast the effect until level 45, like all Kunark armor. I suggest you don't try to drown your newbie friend before then.

You don't even know what are u talking about!

SS gauntlets have a permanent EB effect that works at lvl 1. You don't need to cast/recast it, and it can't be dispelled! Just equip your SS gauntlets and jump to the water. YOU WON'T DROWN.

I was able to buy one when I was lvl 20 or so, funded by my tailoring, and I have used them since then.
The Picture?

Why is the Bard not even wearing the Gauntlets if it is a item pic of the gauntlets?!?

# May 27 2001 at 4:05 AM Rating: Default
with all this talk there snothink about the drop most other class armor from KC has a mob so think not random but could be wroung?

Actually, about half the class armor in Kunark is specific to a zone, but can drop off of a random type of mob. The other half drop off of not too rare named mobs in Seb and KC.

Exceptions are pants and breastplates; bps drop off of Trakanon, pants drop off of Venril Sathir (the real one, not the triggered one for the druid epic/iksar shaman quest).

This particular piece is a random drop from skeletal guardians in KC.

Except for monks (whose armor drops in Dalnir), all the class specific Kunark armor drops in Sebilis and KC.

Drops of any random skeletal guardian. At least, that's what they dropped from last night.
Great Item for the Price!

Hello All,

The SingingSteel Gloves are a great item for the currant price of 500-1500pp [depending on your server]. They work from level 1 as far as I've been able to tell, and are a "Constant Effect," so they can never be dispelled. On top of the handy effect is a pile of AC, and as bards have this in-born tendency to be beat on, we need all the AC we can get. Well worth the lack of stats [as compaired to simerly priced gloves].
Any lvl

Got a pair of these last night and gave em to my lvl 22 bard friend. Is there any minimum lvl or does he just jump in the lake and away he goes?

Go jump in a lake. -grin- The fact that these are the only SS piece which (a) have a permanent effect and (b) therefore work on any bard lvl 1 and above makes them very, very nice. And the fact that they are available on many servers for under 1k, (I bought mine for 600), only sweetens the deal. The 5 dex and 1 cha on lambent gauntlets was very nice, and shall be missed, but I think the extra 4 ac, and perm enduring breath makes the switch palatable. :)

#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 28 2001 at 12:44 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) As of the latest patch, 3/27/01, it no longer procs Enduring Breath. It now procs the level 26 fear song. One less song to twist I suppose. Still bummed at the level 45 proc though. =(
# Jan 14 2002 at 10:33 PM Rating: Decent
You can still get the old version, they cost considerably more than the new ones, at least on Quellious, and I'd imagine the same for any other server

Er, it was the GREAVES that were supposed to have changed to the fear song, not the gloves... They changed the two that had Summon Food and Summon Drink, which is the boots and greaves. Unless they managed to ***** that up somehow.
# Mar 31 2001 at 12:24 AM Rating: Excellent
Yes It is still enduring breath and it is not triggered its is a constant effect

My mistake sorry, this post was meant for the greaves.
