Actually it's usable from level 45, and Lesser Shielding does:

Increase Total Hit Points from 20 (L8) to 30 (L18)
Increase Armor Class (AC) from 6 (L8) to 9 (L18)
Increase Magic Resist from 7 (L8) to 10 (L20).

In all honesty these have minimal value imho. The AC it gives you is very nice for the slot but the buff is at best just for show. There's a reason why Int casters get this at level 8. It's simply not made for the required level given to it. It should be at about mid 20's and no higher. And if you think about it a Sta item would probably be in the best interest of a melee class at such a level. Of course this is only an opinion.
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 02 2002 at 3:54 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Well maybe for you, but being level 60 warrior, it does what I said it does in my previous post

The spell effect does what overkongen says, despite you thinking different.

I smell ebay, get a rope.

I just bought these last night on Povar in the bazaar for 2k, and I think it was a wise investment. Got me over the 900ac plateu ( I am only level 44 after all ) but I can't use the effect. I want to say that the effect kicks in once you hit level 46. Only time will tell. Just a few more pieces to get till I have a full set of Cobalt... BP, legs, boots, and wrists.. so I guess it's a lot of pieces afterall now that I think about it. Grrrr! Or a LOT a LOT of plat till I get there... 40k for the BP, 40k for the wrists, 8k for the boots, and I want to say the legs go for about 25k on Povar... Time to go camp Gornit some more! hehehe

Bought mine today for 4kPP awsome peice of armor and the effect raises ac even more not to mention a nice 10+ sv magic which comes in handy being on a PVP server on Vallon Zek.
So these
# Mar 12 2002 at 11:49 AM Rating: Default
can drop off any of the zol knights in the zone, and can, in fact, drop right by the zone line (albiet rarely)?

So, why didn't you give these to me then IK? Bastage!

My group killed a Zol near the Jails in Old Sebilis tonight (killed him breaking into the camp) and he dropped these.

I've been in Sebilis for a while and I've had RBG and these drop once each for my groups, but they are both extremely rare.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 04 2001 at 9:52 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) stop talking about what the effect does and tell me how to kill this thing, where it is, how hard it is.... you know the useful info
# Jun 28 2001 at 10:06 AM Rating: Default
Easy to get, very very rare drop tho. Drops off zol knights near the zone in in Seb. I won cobalt vambracers today, and I remember the masterlooter freaking out when he looted them ;)
My luck, our warrior already had some, and I rolled a 94...

Have you ever zoned with 10Hps left?
Or have you survived i battle with less then 20Hp.
If you have you are glad that you those arms on you. I myself take all hitpoints I can get.
Never underestimate the power of the small numbers and figures :)
RE: Sure it makes a difference
# Aug 15 2001 at 3:19 AM Rating: Default
Not since level 40. If I'm down to 10hps in a battle at level 55, I'm probably as good as dead.
RE: Sure it makes a difference
# Sep 23 2001 at 10:29 AM Rating: Default
That's what I think too, since monsters hit so hard. But a warrior can easily get a lot of HPs with his gear. All these +30 and +25 add up and bring you above 200 HPs bonus easily
RE: Sure it makes a difference
# Jan 16 2002 at 8:59 AM Rating: Default
yeah, now just imagine if you'd have been an ogre, that 50 stamina would have given you about 300 or more hp at 55...

Ogres is da bestest dere is at tankin anyting in da hole wide wurld.
# May 05 2001 at 9:27 AM Rating: Default
Yep. At 55 it's the same...+30 hp, +9 AC, +10 MR. +30 hp and +9 AC are OK (if I'm buffed to 4k, is 30 hp really gonna make a difference?) but the +10 MR is very nice. I never timed it but I believe the effect lasts 20-30 minutes, and shaman Talisman of Kragg/Altuna overwrites it.

i got some of these as well, a few months ago by the entrance to seb
the spell is
6-9 ac
10 mr
that's it.
but the vambraces with the spell add about 47 ac i think, so these are really nice vambs

It's one of the most common spells, as all casters get it, and all of one poster get all the effects right, with some of them being EXCEPTIONALLY through the roof. I wish when my 'chanter was level 8 he was able to cast a self-only 300 hp buff. Riiiight.

It's 20-30 HP

7-10 MR

6-9 AC

Presumably the item will cast them all at max.


Voi-farging-la. Do the SLIGHTEST bit of research before posting up such falsities that leads folks to spewing things like "Cazic Thule harm touches every second and it's instakill, unresistable, and unrezzable thereafter, he also makes a mean cup of java."
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 19 2001 at 9:55 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I heard its a good 300hp buff and gives around 20AC... heard this off some warrior stopping by orc camp as i was camping for belts for a friend and he told me the buff is that or close to it. he had them on and used effect so then he told me.
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 03 2001 at 10:05 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I have some of these. The buff does 10ac and 10mr. Nothing more, nothing less.
RE: effect
# Feb 28 2001 at 5:41 AM Rating: Default
its a lvl 8 caster spell (all caster get it), it gives you hp 30 ac 8 and ressist magic 10.
it stacks with cleric hp / ac buffs but not with the talisman spell series off the shaman (the talis will overwrite it)
# Feb 18 2001 at 11:33 PM Rating: Default
also a little bit of MR
# Jan 15 2001 at 7:39 PM Rating: Default
The effect is an AC buff. It adds approximately 12 AC, if I remember and DOES stackk with a cleric's AC buff.
RE: Effect
# Feb 07 2001 at 1:58 PM Rating: Default
