Our level 29-33 group fighting original version of Cazic Thule zone was able to drop the avatar today. Ravenscale Chestguard dropped.

This of course, happened on a time-locked progression server.
go pvp.

This is still WAY WAY nice. I have a rogue on a Player VS player server. If you look the mask has see invis, TONS of resists and stats. A full suit would sill be very nice by todays standards and definately killer for old world mobs.

Warriors had crafted. shadowknighs flayed, rogues raven scale... rangers ivy etched... This was the mid gear. these stats are very nice. but again the old argument OF COURSE there is somethign better. but I come out here while getting XP anyways and loot nice stuff for my race/class :) its very nice.

to answer the question just below me, I think it drops off a new mob now. since CT was all moved out front... It looks like a new mob, click the link for the critter that drops.

Today February 24th 2004, got on off the Silverflank Guardian top of the ramp leading to CT zone. Apparently seems to be his common drop ;)

as of today 10/15/2003 it does still drop. I just got a Ravenscale Chestguard that dropped from a Silverflanked Gaurdian at the top of the ramp to Cazic Thule.

You are replying to old posts. And the 20k that was quoted was on a Haze Panther chest piece, not Raven Scale.
The avatar + Pick pocket
# Mar 10 2002 at 5:28 AM Rating: Default
The avartar is not a rogue class, so cant were this. Its Human like, and so, does that mean we can pick pocket it and the claws?


Hummm... interesting
#REDACTED, Posted: Mar 11 2002 at 1:14 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) what the hell are you talking about...the avatar of fear is NOT human like....please dont post if you have no idea what you are talking about...

Drops of a Silverflank gorilla, gate to cazic at the top of the temple stairs. In the same spawn point you can also get a gorilla, a large gorilla, and a hulking gorilla so far. The silverflank seems to be the rarespawn, and it dropped the chest guard.

Ok not sure if this has happen on proddie servers, but CT has changed now. Its a 55plus zone now. Raven drops of gorrillas at ent of CT in ferrott and DF drops Crusaders outside of CT now. just a warning if it hasnt changed on prod servers yet

Duh
# Feb 25 2002 at 12:34 PM Rating: Default
Of course Ravenscale sucks compared to Haze Panther! That stuff is ubertastic, and impossible to make/outrageous to buy. Tunic goes for about 20K or more IF and I stress IF you can find someone that's selling it. I wish. Those stats are insane.
#Xyrax, Posted: Feb 21 2002 at 7:45 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) LAME!!!
#Xyrax, Posted: Feb 21 2002 at 7:44 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) why is everyone making such a big deal about ravenscale..i have a 54 rogue and never bothered getting this lame armor set cause i either bought my armor or got it grouping...rygorr bp is soo much better just cause of the extra 5 str...lame armor..everyone makes it out to be "the rogue" armor in eq..whatever!
NO, this armor is merely dated. It doesn't suck.
# Mar 08 2002 at 8:26 PM Rating: Decent
You have probably only been playing for a couple months, too. Hate to burst your bubble, but a rogue who doesn't acknowledge RS as the excellent armor it was back when it was the best armor prior to planar armor, isn't really a rogue, but a twink without a clue.

You probably never did the Burning Rapier quest, either, did you?

#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 21 2002 at 8:42 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Have to agree with you, to an extent. First of all, I like the idea of a rogue only armor, and the black look is pretty cool. The thing is, the armor really ISN'T that great. At best, on par with Ry'Gorr chain (some parts equal, some better, some worse) And some of the stats are retarded (see: Ravenscale Boots - Charisma buff for boots? Please...)
RE: this armor sucs!
# Mar 08 2002 at 8:01 PM Rating: Decent
Seeing as how Ravenscale is Old World armor before Velious and Im pretty sure before Kunark it was quite sufficient for the day...

# Mar 08 2002 at 11:49 PM Rating: Default
LOL, of course it's pre-Kunark. It's the original class-specific armor that replaced Rubicite when Verant realized that having really good armor that every class in the game ('cept casters) could wear--and only dropped in one dungeon--wasn't necessarily a great idea...
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 19 2002 at 12:53 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Want to Buy or Trade for this item. The Nameless Server - Tyrlinoth

Ravenscale Combo
# Nov 18 2001 at 10:27 PM Rating: Decent
Now I am not possitive about this, but I have heard that if someone has full Ravenscale..meaning the rare stuff from epic mob along with Cazic-Thule stuff...that it is better than Woven Shadow. I haven't gone through and added up the different stats, but it would be cool if this is true.

As a rogue of 51 dark moons, I have owned complete sets of RS, Ry'Gorr, and now Woven Shadow. When I do Renux again, I will have an ultra-rare *complete set* of the stuff (including epic pieces) that I wouldn't part with for under 10k. Yes, RS is very good armor up until about level 40, and/or you get hit a lot. The woven shadow has no resists, just pure stats, so the RS really wins on that point. And as other posters have said, there is a *wee* bit of awe that is afforded the rogue in RS carrying a Burning Rapier (in a Mask of Deception, of course).

AC or Stats
# Aug 16 2001 at 8:53 PM Rating: Decent
Ok, What is best for a rogue to have, ac or stats such as (dex, agi, str). Should i go for the Ravenscale or the Mithril Breastplate?
RE: AC or Stats
# Apr 01 2002 at 9:09 AM Rating: Default
Okay, first, Mithril BP by far is better for your AC. not only do you get the 17 AC, but you also get the 15 AGI bonus to your AC, which will add up.

My theory on being a rogue is more to avopid getting hit. My lvl 30 rogue has a 179 agi, a 160 Dex, and a 110 str.

The dex is to see if you hit, the agility is to see if you DON'T get hit, and the str is nice for those 200+ backstabs. In my primary hand I have a 13 26 weapon, off hand I have a 10 20 + 9 str procs berserker strenth. So in cambat as long as I am not getting hit, I can BS for with a 130 str for over 200. I would suggest going agi and dex. That is what being a rogue is all about, you hitting the opponent and the opponent not being able to hit you.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 17 2001 at 7:00 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Im on bertox server, send tell if you have a ravenscale chestgaurd for sale.
#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 12 2001 at 5:16 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I'm looking to buy this on Tunare server. Will pay well for it. If your selling one, send me a tell some time =) I'm also trying to buy all the other Ravenscale pieces (except Leggings, I already have those) just so u know.
Up your Luck before Attempting

I think this drop all depends on your luck. Quite frankly, it was easier for me to get an FBSS off Frenzy than it has been getting the BP.

I have run two mini raids on the Avatar to help some of my younger guildies out and to get the coveted BP. We have spent several hours down in the AoF room. I have only seen him spawn 5 times. Every time he has dropped the claws and occasionally a piece of Ringmail.

This room can be held with a full group of upper 30s low 40s as long as you have at least one or two healer types. It also seems easy to get SKs to chip in because of the Decayed Armor drops. On our most recent attempt (last night), many pieces dropped.

This guy is a wuus, though I wouldn't suggest trying it with any group lower the 34+. I wouldn't suggest soloing until your 51+ but by the time your 55 this guy is as ez as stealing candy from a baby. Just root dot slow and sick a pet on him. Hope this helps!
RE: Ez Kill
# Aug 01 2001 at 10:53 AM Rating: Default
Thats Great!! Thoug this armor is not good enough for a lvl 51 rogue to use, that info is nice to know... Now just need to lvl 15 more times and I can wear the ravenscale!
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 08 2001 at 10:49 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) BTW CT sux and i hatre to break your spirits little rogues but this stuff is RARE so all of you who think you will walk into Cazic and scare the AoF into giving you the BP or even getting it in your first months is slim chance. i would suggest waiting until lvl 30-35 before attempting CT and then only fight in groups.
AoF advice plz
# Jun 07 2001 at 4:52 AM Rating: Default
Im off to try my hand at RS chestguard with a few seasoned friends! Yes i got a chanter (vital) and a tank and druid for this ole rogues support. Can any one explain how the sewers work - I got a map but do u have to port out once u r down there? or can u come back up without. Also do u have to do alot of underwater swimming to get to the AoF room? The maps aren't clear on this. Thanx

I don't get you guys. It is not a big deal to twink you have worrked for those items just on a different char, it's just logic
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 11 2001 at 8:32 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) yeah.. seriously.. no big deal..... it just means that you suck, and can't play a class up to the point where you would normally earn it with that class.
RE: =P
# Aug 21 2001 at 4:55 AM Rating: Good
twinking does definately not mean youre weak. For instance in caster classes all twinking can do for you is give you more mana which i know any caster would love as it just decreases the amount of down time you have. Therefore it doesnt make them any stronger or whatever. They are all still equally useful. With warriors it also doesnt matter too much as most o the twink stuff just lowers down time once again. It all just revolves around the amount of downtime you have, not how strong you have made your character...
so if you see a level 1 person that levels very quickly they will stop doing that in the future when they hit about 30. To be honest i find that levels 1-30 are boring anyway and that life only really begins at 40 in EQ, so it would make the game more fun too. And the person will have more experience anyway as he has a high level character and will therefore probably work better in your group. I just "twinked" my shaman from level 1 with rygorr armour and slime coated harpoon etc, but she still dies sometimes and im still equally pissed off about it ;) So its no big deal. Twinking doesnt make you weaker
yeah right
# May 23 2001 at 10:43 PM Rating: Good
Taking down the Avatar isnt easy seeing the fact he is SK and can harmtouch. Also he has priest class lizard on the level above him healing. You would need a well rounded group of 35+ to take him out, maybe 33+ if you have a nice ench and cleric. just my two cents
