The whole set is good for lowbie SKs

I like the fact that this isn't 'recomended level'. I have the Blood Ember Gauntlets and they are a nice item for a 25 SK even without the effect. Once the effect kicks in (even though it's a lower level darkness spell) they will be all the more worth the time spent camping them. they look cool, and it's neat to say 'I'm wearing full Blood Ember gear'.

/agree.. .

Even after the effect works at lvl 46, this bp becomes +58 AC and +75 hps along with the other stats.

You'd be hard pressed to find a better bp for the value at lvl 46.
Sortta Nice Sortta sucky

Yes, Major Shielding stacks with Cloak of the Akheva but is overwriten by HoS.

dont knwo about hos, but stacks with ioS

Yup, stacks with IoS - doesn't stack with HoS. IoS has completely different stacking rules than HoS.

Why Oh Why?
# Mar 20 2003 at 11:54 PM Rating: Default
Why Oh Why can't Iksar use this line of armor? All the other SK races can, my brother offered me the blood ember greaves for free, then noticed that Iksar can't use it.... I am a Iksar SK... Verant have a grudge against Iksar or something? This is some of the best SK armor I have ever seen, and the only SK playable class that can't use it is Iksar =(
RE: Why Oh Why?
# Jan 21 2004 at 3:04 AM Rating: Decent
Well, also the Iksar SK's get their own unique Epic, which in my opinion is better than the other races of SK's epic. Just somthing to be thanksful for.
RE: Why Oh Why?
# Jan 30 2004 at 5:39 AM Rating: Default
What unike epic? greenmist? greenmist can be done by almost all races now FYI... only ogres with RZ deity can't do it due to faction issues..
RE: Why Oh Why?
# Jul 13 2003 at 12:45 PM Rating: Default
iksars cannot wear most plate armor because they have a naturally high AC, they can wear just about all quested armor tho - IE: kael/ss plate armor or the new ornate/elemental stuff ;)

Not to be a smartass, but actually it's the other way around. Iksars have that ac bonus because they can't wear plate. They can't wear plate because of RP reasons. They're big cold-blooded scaly lizards, and thus they cannot sweat. If they can't sweat, they have no way to cool themselves down and they'd cook inside a nice suit of platemail in the hot sun.

Think about how badass you are, you get a much higher regen, swimming, forrage, vision, nice stats, and you never have to go farther than two zones until you get to 50 if you dont want to. I have an Erudite SK. I was going to make an Iksar SK but you cant do the worker sledgemallet quest =/ . But I did goof around on the iksar SK, and when you slap a Iksar Ceremonial Chestplate on there you are unstoppable. Anyways guess my point is that its kind of a trade off, you have to put up with a lot as an Iksar, but you get it back.
Not to shabby

Got this dirt cheap on BB for 9K. Had to get a BP cause I turned in Will of Innoruuk for my epic. Man I miss that BP but this one is pretty nice and affordable for what it gives me.
# Sep 26 2002 at 9:26 PM Rating: Decent
I am currently buying this BP on the Veeshan server from my friend he is holding it for me until I get the money. I was just wondering if anyone knows about the effect. I really want to know if its stackable with Aegolism or not. I really would love it to be stackable. Any help would be great thank you.

RE: Stackable?
# Oct 07 2002 at 3:08 PM Rating: Decent
the effect is an INT caster spell, all get it at lvl 24, and adds about 75hp, 18ac and 14mr. it IS stackable with the cleric line of buffs, and druid, but not with shammy hp buffs
# Jun 26 2002 at 1:05 PM Rating: Default
Ya, on Tunare server BP runs for about 25k, and leggings is about 14k. That is pretty cheap, I remember like a year ago BE, Cobalt, Tolans, ect were like 80-100k. Shows how good Kunark armor is considered today ;)

the Major shielding adds hp+75 ac+18 magic resist+14
thats 58 ac right there, plus the agility bonus.
Too bad some other HP buffs overwrite it. Particularly the shaman's Harnessing of Spirit.

BP runs 40k on Tarew

Not exactly 58ac; the 18ac from the effect is the actual ac you get from the spell (as in it shows up as 18ac on your persona), whereas the 40ac on the breastplate its self is base ac, and becomes about 60ac when worn, the agility would add about 2 additional ac. This would yield 80ac.
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 29 2002 at 1:47 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) hOW CAN SOMETHING THAT SAYS 40 ac BE 60 ac ??? WTF U KNOW WHAT IM SAYING. 1AC = 1AC THEREFORE 40 AC IS EQUAL TO 40AC (THATS 40AC + ZERO AC EQUALS 40AC)
RE: shielding
# Sep 30 2002 at 10:17 PM Rating: Default
Shut up asstroll. If your AGI is above a certain point you get bonus AC from items, and 1AC form an item can equal 1.4, 2, or even 3 AC, making 20AC items give anywhere from 20 to 40 AC or more.

I got mine for 25k on the Torvonnilus server!
# Feb 19 2002 at 11:51 AM Rating: Decent
I sold my Phase Spider Carapace AND gave 15k cash to a guy on The Rathe for one of these, I love it. I only wish it was a right clickable heal like the Cobalt BP-or is it.......Major shielding adds 75 hp to your base HP. if you keep clicking it will it heal? I will have to try that tonight because I just remembered my beastlord got a spell called inner fire that was a HP/AC buff that did add up the hp to heal until you were full!!!
RE: Nice
# Jan 17 2003 at 3:11 PM Rating: Default
If I had the ability to lifetap for heals, I would prefer the effect on my class bp to be a buff with saves and AC. :)
RE: Nice
# Feb 21 2002 at 8:22 PM Rating: Default
no this wont heal you like inner fire :( the effect is a pure caster line of spells thats adds ac and hp. will not heal you though :(
What lvl does it proc?

Does anyone know what lvl the effect Major Shielding becomes clickable? =)
RE: What lvl does it proc?
# Nov 11 2001 at 8:28 AM Rating: Decent
Just a guess but all the rest of the Blood Ember is clickable at 45.

umbral vs BE
# Aug 09 2001 at 5:14 AM Rating: Decent
mostly on looks, do you like badass red armor, or sum greyish plate:), and BE bp>>>>>>umbral bp.
# Jul 18 2001 at 5:04 PM Rating: Decent
Umm, yes, of course this is better than umbral. A lot harder to get too.
Right click effect of major shielding gives me an added 17 raw AC. Seems to stack with everything but tuna.
# Oct 18 2001 at 3:49 AM Rating: Decent
The Shielding line of spells don't stac with any of the Talisman spells, because they're basically the same thing

P.S Id look alot more sexxy in it than him :P

"I made myself a SK! and he's level 12! The ac on Blood Ember is 'oober'. Guess I'll have to work overtime at Joe's Burger's to get me a set, cause i don't wanna level or anything like that and go get it! So what if he can't proc it...I'll look cool and be 'oober'! Bet i can get a Noct for $30." =P

#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 05 2001 at 10:21 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) anybody notice the rather odd pc on this thing? hehe, i know its more than 50pp, just thought i'd bring it up....
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 04 2001 at 12:04 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hey, this stuff comes from Kunark why can't Iksars wear it? This really sucks, what is high end that iksar can wear (SK).
RE: Iksars
# Oct 15 2001 at 8:19 PM Rating: Decent
see the word "breastplate" iskars cant wear plate. in game it translates to itching their scaly hides or something. iskars get natural ac bonus tho, if you still dont like it make a darkie
RE: Iksars
# Feb 17 2002 at 1:30 PM Rating: Decent
When Kunark first came out, VI said iksar would be unable to wear plate because it doesnt breath well enough thus they would overheat, and subsequently die.
RE: Iksars
# Dec 18 2001 at 10:05 AM Rating: Decent
not true, the high end plate armor can be worn by Iksar...See Thurgadin/SS/Kael quest armor for example...Too bad we cant wear this tho =(

To Umbral or Not to Umbral
# Apr 18 2001 at 12:35 PM Rating: Default
Well, I am probably going to get flamed for this but...

I believe I rather have these than Umbral. Yes, I said it. I rather have these than Umbral. HOWEVER, the new Planes are sure to have some new SK armor too...perhaps an Umbral upgrade? Never really liked it anyhow.

Now, feel free to flame and have a nice day! Just my 2cp.
