Those negative saves pretty much offset whatever you gain from this item. I mean, it's vastly outdated at this point, but even when it was new I would have been looking at -10 disease and -10 poison and saying nope, not worth it except in rare situations where the saves don't come into play. It's not something I would want to leave in the slot 24/7. I mean, think about it, if you're a necro you're going to be fighting a lot of undead along with necro and sk NPC's that may happen to be in the zone and they use a lot of poison and disease so you'll be needing the saves. I do vaguely recall a few excursions into Unrest long ago where the necros were practically attacking one another for one, though, so they must have had some value once upon a time.

gah, dont you just hate that? it can be a -100 every stat in the game breastplate usable by no class no race and weighs 1000, and some bugger will always defend it! "well its good for a level one character with nothing else to wear and mental problems, at the level you can get it for when you have a full group/guild trying for it." for ***** sake, this item SUCKS. ok, so if it was a newb who never fought anything that used disease or poison, it would...still suck. i think they are actually employees of verant trying to brainwash us. dont listen to them!
Can't Be Worth Much

Man looted one of these last night, I, a lvl 38 warrior, and a friend 36 druid, killed about 3 or 4 hags and got it. We went to kill Garanel Rucksif and had to go through these guys to get it,.....Cant be worth much!

Ok, look at this cloak this way. Just for a moment, ignore the -10 to save poison and disease, and look at 5ac, 10 mana, 10hp. 5 ac is not bad for a caster back item, and 10 mana is quite a bit for a lower level character, up to maybe 20, if untwinked, 10 hp is extra mana thru cannibalize. I would see this item as one that you might switch out when fighting certain mobs. It only weighs .5, so no biggy to carry in the backpack, and when not fighting mobs with disease or poison attacks, it's actually a pretty nice caster item. Further, even with poison or disease based mobs, it they only have a melee proc type attack, then you're still in good shape, as the pet should keep it off of you.

hey timog whats the bracer for? i got one because i hi lvl char didnt need.

Aye, it sucks. I sold all the ones I got from Unrest to a merchant (was camping the darkbone bracer for lambent whatchacallit).. Then the next day I go to EC and saw one sell for 100pp. Anyone wanna explain *why* this went for 100, and actually SOLD? I wouldn't pay 2pp for it if I had a necro.. Would take a bare back slot over this thing.

There are times when a high level player is searching for quest items and will offer insane money to quickly get a crappy item, just to save time. Recently, someone was offering 300pp for a chipped bone rod (or was it a blackened wand - I forget). Did I ask questions? Hell no!

The guy got a guildmate to port to Odus and pick up my lvl 5 chanter alt. The guildmate escorted my alt to Befallen where said dude coughed up 300 shiny coins for a item my main almost threw away.

I know I've overpaid for stuff, just to save time. How many people pay 20pp+ for a port when they could just take a boat ride?
