I was pretty surprised to buy this for my Ranger twink yesterday for 800pp (with a few more for sale for 2500-5000pp). Sure, the recommended level is high, but at about level 24 the AC will pass that of my current Ry'gorr Battle Mail and keep going up... plus it's tradable, so if I get Tae Ew at 51 I can pass it on to my Rogue.

800pp for what appears to be one of the best tradable chest items for a Ranger seems like a pretty good deal :).

I bought this for my ranger for 500pp. Price jumped up to 5k a week later so I sold it for that. Now, the price is back down, so if your on Bristlebane, now would be the time to get one.

Color? Who Cares?

Yes, it is bright pink. Given the stats I shucked out the 40pp for a primatic dye in the bazaar. Now its a nice glossy black; the way rogue armor should be. Bought the armor for 1600pp. A week ago they were 2500pp on Bertox server. Price is falling rapidly. That's amazing considering the stats. Wish it had some DEX. But at level 54 the AC still rings in at 42. The other stats are close to max. I am not complaining.

Not to sound like a newb here cuz I'm never fashion-conscious when it comes to my gear but the pink color on this thing has got to go. Trouble is, since I've never cared before, I have absolutely no idea how to go about it.

Buy primatic dye...i can get that far and glossy black sounds fine to me...but i'm lost after that so if someone could explain to me the process real quick so I don't #$% it up...I would appreciate it.

Prismatic Dye is made by brewing skill. You buy the supplies from a vendor in Gulf of Gunthak in the lighthouse. I just went to the bazaar and bought if from a PC trader since my brewing is not even close to the 58 needed for trivial.

I put it on a undyed rogue, the color is a hot pink or a light purple. Good thing you dyed your chest or be laughed at by other players
Nice armor
# Sep 17 2003 at 3:52 PM Rating: Decent
Got 2 of these last night for 7K- one a gift to guildie (Ranger), other we put in guild bank; there was NO comparable armor on the Drinal server at 10K, starting at 12K diety (Cazic Thule) based was available. Now if I only I could find armor like this for my warrior.....
RE: Nice armor

Price on Morell Thule: 1-2k, most around 1500pp
Pretty good item, especially for the price on MT, but by the time you get full effects, you'd already have equivelent or better. I'll stick with my tae ew.

1. 4 people in my guild had this same BP when I linked them mine all excited. Ok folks my guild has 99 Total mostly alts and people who dont play anymore. During peek playing hours the most I have ever seen online for my guild is 15. That is 15 people in my guild that play on a weekly basis. Strange 1/4 of the active guild has this very nice item. Humm maybe drop rate is a little on the MONTY HALL side for the LDoN.

2. Tried to sell my BP to a NPC vendor for cash. WHY you ask would I every want to sell such a sweet BP to a NPC. Prolly worth thousands if you sell yourself right? WRONG- Price war started this weekend. Following PC merchants were selling for 8k <<< this was prolly the first guy to put up for sale. Next guy had for 7k, next dude 6k, next 5k, next 4k and finally myself and yes I tried 3k. No joy... Anyway NPC said to me " I will give you absolutely nothing for this item." Well Fugk me ! WTF the one time I roll 'good' won on a 52 for the love of god. I cannot wear item, cannot sell item and cannot give item away to guildmate.

Was a little shocked myself seeing an item like this sell for 1k. Immediately looked around if there is anything comparable for a warrior.

Closest I saw was a Heavy Rubicite BP for 20k which is inferior to this and even to Tae Ew Tunic.

Why is Sony making it so easy to twink a rng, rog, or shm.

# Sep 17 2003 at 5:23 AM Rating: Default
I'm not complaining... it is a nice item.
If I were in the market to a Tae Ew Tunic I'd be looking at this instead. However at level 51, Tae Ew would probably be a better item.... come to think of it.. at 65 Tae Ew would probably be a better item.
I too was quite happy when I saw it drop and was quite disappointed to see it selling in the bazaar by 10 other people. In 30 adventures I have done... I now have 4 of them and have lost the roll more times then I have won if that tells you how frequently they drop.

Oh darn!! Poor soul can't sell it for 50k. WHAAAAAAA!! WHAAAAAAAAA!! God forbid people who don't eat, breath, sleep, and live EQ can get a really nice item without emptying the bank.

Everyone makes it sound like, by it being so common, its a bad item. Maybe I am a bit nieve but when my friend handed me one I almost peed on myself. These stats are awesome. Yes I am sure there is better.

Like I will go to the bazaar and maybe spend 10-30p an item... ok, thats WAY cheap, but I can STILL buy stuff that makes me disgustingly powerful in the old world. Seriously. People forget, compared to EQ the environment you are geared very nicely. The AC on this makes more difference then I thought possible. Loot it, Loot a million, give to friends, Enjoy it, Enjoy the game. Buy some Dye, who cares. Put 'pink nightmare' in your 'inspect bio text' :D

Here here!! And well said. Sometimes it seems in this game anymore that if you don't have a 65 (or several) you aren't squat.

I applaud and share your views =)

It has a funky Velious texture (using old models, on a Wood elf.) Chain based appearance but with some inlays on it.

Can't tell you the color as I have the chest slot dyed.

Tae Ew?
# Sep 10 2003 at 8:24 PM Rating: Decent
This looks like an upgrade to all the Tae Ew thats been around, maybe the prices will drop for the poor people like me :)

Geeze, how low do you want tae ew to drop. I sell the stuff, and its down to 4k +/- 500 for the BP and legs, on Rodcet Nife.
RE: Tae Ew?
# Sep 10 2003 at 9:26 PM Rating: Good
Seems to be just shy of being as good as Tae ew actually. This has 2 more ac but Tae ew has 8 agil which for some depending on their agil, could make tae ew have more worn ac. ok this has 10 more hp... tae ew has 8stam and for any of these classes thats alot more hp then 10. ok this has 5 more svF but is lackin the 5 to all other saves tae ew has. tae ew has 1 more wis and 15more mana. In the end your ac prob wont change but by 1 or 2 one way or the other, your losing hp and mana with this to gain 3str and 8cha. oh and tae ew can be worn for full effect at 51, this gotta wait till 60...

almost forgot tae ew has 5dex too

Tae Ew is definately better, but also costs more. Buy the better one if you can afford it or get this one if you can't.
