One reason i have stopped buying in the bazaar is peeps way over pricing things or buying the cheap but good stuff then jacking up the price to 20 or 30k personally all you who say 20 or 30k to this item pppfffttt go jump off a bridge or something it's things like that that have ruined a good game
Berserker usable.

for all the rants, why would anyone even do this quest anymore? Red dragonscale is worth by FAR more to people doing epic, such as a bard, and you could sell the scale for more than this little BP

your insane the PSC isnt worth anywhere near what those items will fetch sold individualy atleast on povar the arms alone sell for like 5 k or more and this BP with 20 str would go for about 15 to 20 k maybe more

I dont agree.
I can get barbed ringmail for around 4k thats 9 better AC and 50 hp more. It's only 9 str and no resist but with the extra 11-16k your suggesting I can easily overcome that difference with other items.

# May 04 2003 at 12:45 AM Rating: Decent
yeah that may be the case but with that logic your stats can only get so high most people who are high level pay far more for slightly better stats
RE: trading
# Jul 09 2003 at 6:22 PM Rating: Default
most people who are high level pay for ac and resists only. Stats can be buffed to max very easily....stats are last thing you look for on an item at a high level
# May 26 2002 at 3:33 AM Rating: Decent
I just checked this quest for this item out, and find the listed price just short of 25k somewhat puzzeling, considering the Red dragon scale required for the quest sells in the region 27k if it's not looted, + the quest time+effort and the 1000pp you have to give the NPC in Rathe, makes 25k seem a little feeble.

Saw one of these going for 8k on veeshan the other day. Though this might be cheaper then a bunch if other servers cause from what I see veeshan has the best buys for the money

Personally I think it's insane to use red scale for this BP, the scale sold alone is worth more than the BP, and you can easily buy better with the cash you get from scale. So no, the PC isn't wrong, for stats that is how much it's worth. I wouldn't expect to see many of these though because most people have enough brains to let the red scales go to warriors or bards (for epic) on naggy/talendor/ragefire raids.

I also saw one for 8k on Mith Marr, and it was by a guildy and a few other people up in the Bazaar. I was relieved to finally see this item go for the price its actually worth. Oh, and i also saw a few red dragon scales go for about 6k. *shrug* 8k seems fine with me.

Does it look like the Blazing Fennin Ro bp or just red fp?
# Jan 27 2002 at 1:46 AM Rating: Default
Can ths be multiuested?? I know it prolly can't be, and the waiting list is prolly REALLY long on the red dragon scales, but does anyone know?????
RE: Multiquest???
# Apr 14 2002 at 8:13 PM Rating: Decent
the scales not no drop, the bp is not no drop - why would you need to multiquest it
#REDACTED, Posted: Jan 12 2002 at 12:01 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) think about it, its a typo, if you are an iksar, with the scales and all, would be considered a reptile, now, with this info we would have to conclude that when a reptile is covered with something it cant regulate its temperature, leaving the thing overheating and therefor, dieing.

I play on Xegony server, where the people are cool and the prices are bottom of the barrel...except on this item. Recently, hoping I could deck out my Ranger in this VERY nice (VERY VERY nice looking) Breastplate, I was shocked at the obscene price tag. It was going for around
12-18k platinum, far out of my normal price range and I am far from poor. I asked why the heck it was so expensive and when the famous Barbed Ringmail (30ac, +9STR, +50HP) was only 7-9k. The response I got was that the added 11 STR and the two resists made up for the -9ac -50HP drop from otherwise not wearing the Barbed. I know the scale is rare, and an important part of an epic...but does that justify the price when most Bards and Warriors that I know HAVEN'T started their epic, thus making the only logical reason for the scale to be used is to create the BP? Pretty much what I am asking for is a firm justification of why the price is so high.
Thank you.

It's called supply and demand. warrriors and bards have the biggest demand, so that means that their is not that large of a supply to make this!
RE: Pricing is off
# Dec 22 2001 at 12:39 AM Rating: Decent
Well I'm a ranger also and would like one of these, but wars need the scale for epics. Now since a guild would raid naggy wouldn't there be a war tanking? They most likely would have their epic though, so it would go to the war who won the roll. That's pretty much the reason why it goes for so much.
RE: Pricing is off

Go on a Naggy raid and the main tank will not have his epic, if he does he's the luckiest SOB to play eq. Warrior epic is hard, and you cannot fight naggy (you can be there, but certainly not tank) Naggy if you have reached 53rd level.. Warrior epic is hard, taking you to plenty of Naggy raids considering the number of warriors who need the scale, the 7th island of Plane of Air and Severillious. Not to mention the Hand of the maestro. 52 warrior with epic? not likely.

There is a sad little twink of a warrior on Vallon Zek with his epic. His friends multiquested almost the entire thing for him. He's lvl 51.

Jealous? Not at all. Just sad to see that to some the holding of the epic is more important than the actual doing of the quest.
RE: Pricing is off
# Aug 21 2003 at 1:30 AM Rating: Default
you can get the red dragon scale from 2 other mobs then naggy. Sheesh do research before posting useless info =P

You can get a red dragon scale from Naggy or Ragefire OR a named mob in the hole who is a alternative kill for the bard epic....

As for the green scale you get it from servilous in EJ....

The warrior epic is ALOT easier then the SK or Monk epic... get over it =P only part hard is finding the help killing some of these mobs to get yer items you need....

I dunno about the dark red plate thing, i remember this looking light red. One of the reasons its so ultra rare is the red dragonscale used to make it usually go to a warrior or bard epic when they kill naggy, or if they let others roll on scale, it goes to some high level warrior or bard who buys it off the winner. Rarely is this bp made any more.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 23 2001 at 8:07 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This BP kicks ***!Hmm.. maybe i can convince my guild to take out that dragon....
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 04 2001 at 1:46 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Who cares! Everyone complaining about iksars not able to wear this just think this, If you are an iksar, do you think you are actually gonna get this item? Well I am a 21ts lvl iksar warrior and would love to have this item but I cant so its tough. Yes banded and cab scale sucks, then youll just have to wait for better.
YES! Still In GAME

#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 23 2001 at 12:44 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Please stop wastein space you iksar warriors, saying we cant where this , we cant where that, you have enchated regen, night vision, and a natural AC boost, and if it is that big of an issue that you cant where plate armor, change your character, i dont mean to sound rude, but it is annoying having to read all this stuff
I love this thing

On my 21 warrior I just got this not too long ago and god I love it besides if I ever get tired of It I can sell it =)

saw a lvl 6 ranger with this.... thats messed up

# Jun 12 2001 at 8:10 AM Rating: Default
some guy said that they took it out of the game since it was too good.

is this correct?

i dont want to waste approx. 2500pp and risk my life slaying a dragon to discover that the quest is broke...

please confirm that it either works or doesnt.

thank u

How is the price on this thing justified?

I bought Treeweave for 2k; this is apparently like 15k-20k. So people are paying 13-18k for 10 strength, 10 fire and 10 magic, with worse AC?

Treeweave looks like hell, especially on ogres, but I'll take the treeweave and the fbss I could get for the money over this thing. Especially since it's becoming more and more clear just how little impact strength really has above certain pretty low thresholds.

This is one of those items that is such a ***** to get, its basically a status symbol.
As to the Iksar issue, well its just a trade off. my iksar just used banded til i did my quest armor. After that, i just have to wait til i can go on Planes raids or hunt in places like Old Seb, Karnors and such.

And BTW there are some very nice chain mail items that Iksars can use, LOTS of new Velious stuff is iksar usable. just stop whinning about not getting plate mail and search for stuff you CAN use!

iksar - plate = wrong
# May 18 2001 at 9:47 AM Rating: Default
buddy who was sick of plate..
im a 60 iksar shaman....and i can wear plate...
i have 1049AC now, no buffs...
i think its wrong that iksar can wear most of the new armour that is coming out....
it make iksar superior...
RE: iksar - plate = wrong
# Jun 12 2001 at 2:01 AM Rating: Default
Weird,but thought you could only have 1000 ac (unbuffed)?
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 18 2001 at 4:21 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hey how about you play the damn game for a chance and get high enough and then learn how much ac you can have my rogue thats level 53 has 1087ac unbuffed. It is also possible to go over 1k on attack. Just dont start ******** till you actualy know the facts.

Dude or Dudette,

Mellow out a bit. He/she is making a statement. I for one thought the same but with YOUR superior knowledge I have been enlightened. So again, mellow out and teach instead of "*****" like you yourself said.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 19 2001 at 1:53 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hey *******, not everyone knows you can exceed the 1000 that shows up in Persona. When you learn something new, feel free to share the info with other people, and don't be a **** to those who don't know. You are level 53. Did you ever stop and wonder if there is anyone system wide who is lower level than you that doesnt know everything there is to know? So teach us, oh master...what is it that can be learned from a 53 rogue?
rare ha
