The info is it was probably one of the best things you could get back in original EQ but 19ac and 9str won't even sell today. Maybe a lvl nothing newbie could enjoy it during the rough period in levelling up those first 20 level but beyond that just bank it for a trophy of mistmore or vendor it...

I have on of these on Veeshan and am wondering the value of it, just curious that's all. Also I'm a lvl 23 warrior and have had this BP since lvl 9 :) I got it off of my Hubby's old char. Hehe wasn't I lucky. Well any info on this item would be much appreciated, thank-you.

errr lol the price is a lil off it should be 4k lower then what it says
Looks like an EBBP

I have one on A-Ro ( available for sale, if interested ).
The CPoDF looks just like the EBBP. Darker than a Dusty BP, by a little bit.

When ever you see gear from and old zone you need to think about the time and the gear available then. Pre kunark this armor could compete with the paly and SK class armor
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 06 2001 at 9:52 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Why the hell would you want this when you can get a Ry`Gorr Battle Mail for cheaper price and its like 18ac 10str and some other stuff. And more class can use Ry`Gorr. And don't forget Ry`Gorr Battle Mail is way easier to get than this.

The reason for getting this item rather then an easier one is the same as many others who I've met hunting Mistmoore Castle. It is for the honor of taking down a rare hard spawn in nasty dungeon and for the adventure of it.

No, the Battle Mail is not easier to get than this.

Yes, this is a rare drop... but Garton can be camped by a group in their mid-30's. The Ry'Gorr Chief can't be camped until your mid-40's.

Battle Mail is a whole lot easier to get. A high lvl druid can easily solo the Chief (if done right). But if you go into MM, you will get smoked. Just my 2cps.

your explaination just helps prove druids suck when they cant have big open fields to kite in, not that the average group, that most people here are think of, couldnt get this easier than the same group trying to hunt the ry'gorr chief.

Druids rule buddy, just quad kited in the plane of fear the other day, 0 mana, just using my manaless dots and items such as Rowyl's Bracers of Nature, look it up, it rocks. just my 2cp

Str for damage max.

hmmm, have you ever oplayed a melee class _ High Str does not only affect carrying capacity but also max damage for your primary weapon. So even if the weight of the plate cancels out the Strength gain to carrying capacity, the Sr bonus will still work. Neverthelss, there much better breastplates IMHO..
you are low str hu
# May 12 2001 at 1:13 PM Rating: Default
then why would someone with low str want an item that is 15stones ? makes no sense dude
RE: you are low str hu
# May 21 2002 at 9:30 AM Rating: Decent
Because the 9 STR added by this item increases the wearers ATK stat. Although this item weighs 15 (not stones...units. 15 stones would be the weight of a large man) the added 9 strength means that the max encumberance is increased and the wearer is only 6 closer to being encumbered (assuming a previously empty chest slot)

I had a guild raid one nite when this thing dropped i was level 36 and he was prett easy to kill. I read somewhere that this BP drops about once every 6-8 months.
Looks good to,

It dropped last night on Povar, if it drops again I'll post.
This would be handy for me.
# Apr 08 2001 at 1:55 PM Rating: Default
I truly truly want this item, it's not the best AC but I'm a low strength warrior and it'd give me the sort of boost I could really use...

Pity the guy that drops it is well out of my league. Still, gotta see if I can organize a party for it. Anyone know what's needed to take down Garton?
