This is the old school PoF gear.

It looks EXACTLY like Indicolite, and has the EXACT same stats. Verant nerfed it though long before the plane went live and changed how the armor drops worked. A change for the better in my opinion.

Could you imagine one peice of LR dropping and having to roll against 30 other people for it? It would also take away a lot of the game's originallity to have EVERYONE 46+ basically equipped in the same gear. One of Verant's smarter moves.

I was lucky enough to get one of these as a reward for helping defend the city of Freeport from an attack of Dark Elves. This GM event was a guild war between 'Bringers of the Light' and 'Children of Darkness'. Very cool...

Got one as well...

Have been asked many times, how i got such old school armor, without ever being able to go to PoF

This was the original Planes armor when Fear first went live. Y'know, before they closed it down again and brought it back. Back when you could take a level 1 character up there, no level restrictions. They decided that having armor that was the same for all plate classes was a bad idea, so they stopped this from dropping (but didn't delete it from the players, a rogue on my server still has full Lustrous Russet), and created all the class-specific stuff that drops up there today.

This hasn't been dropping for a LONG time now.

Its about time they gave access to bards to get decent bad its not dropped anymore.

this is the same as indicolite warrior class armor. if they kept this in the game, they'd a better raised the stats on all the indo that other warr's have to compensate for every other damn class gettin the same ac gear. i'm glad its not dropped anymore. yay!

This item is no longer dropped, god I wonder why? The stats are amazing =P.

Guess too many ninja lootings occured when they actually did drop. Even bards, rogues and rangers can wear it ;P
