The effect on this is a Combat effect, which is the same thing as a proc. It is NOT a clickie/triggered effect. I know, i just got this while camping HS key, and threw it out.
Bst Lrd cannot use this...

No your not crazzy, had 1 on my cleric, every time it proc's it debuff's something on me. I got rid of it, not worth having IMO.

I still have never seen one of these, could someone please send in a pic.
How about the 6ac?
# Jan 02 2003 at 7:08 PM Rating: Default
As a shaman in my lower 50's before I got a bunch of uber high end ac items... I wielded this just for the 6ac to go over 900ac. Now at 56 with self buffs I am at 966ac and going for 1000, I may wield it again just to do so when I am casting only and only if it puts me over the 1000ac mark. Not to mention the saves aren't that shabby to put me over 1000ac. Plus it makes people wonder what the heck is that book that uber green chested lizard has. Obviously not a testament of vaneer since I am kos there :)
Book curte but useless in melee

Too tired to scoll through the posts but this still bugged or cursed - i.e. it procs on the wielder canceling out your buffs. =) Guess it might be ok for PvP and you getting your butt dot'd to death.
Me like my book

My troll shaman has this as her primary melee weapon. It may have a bit more delay, but she smacks the hell out of monsters with it, and it looks hilarious.

There are few things funnier than a big green troll with a huge book in her hand whacking the snot out of monsters.
For Sale

Trooper Scale Greaves
AC: +12 Str: +2 Agi: +3 Fire Resist: +2 Cold Resist: +2
Weight: 5.0
Classes: Warrior

Quest info is found here...

Hope this helps.

I'm Selling this on Bertoxx with my char Sajinor. Send tell and I will sell for about 400pp or a nice gnome mage item.

Thats a wrong price. I got mine for 70pp
RE: Sell
# Jun 23 2002 at 10:28 PM Rating: Default
smoking crack if you think you are going to get 400pp for this peace. I have hammers that do more damage and better stats that sell for 100pp. I would pay 100 no more.
Stats on Leggings?
# Mar 25 2002 at 4:39 PM Rating: Default
ok I was given this item by a random person and I can't seem to auction it off at any price. No one wants to buy a melee tome for 1k :P

so I was considering actually making an iksar to do this quest and then just auction off the leggings. However I can't seem to find any Stats on the Leggings anywhere. Has anyone actually done this quest? Are the Leggings No Drop? if anyone can, please post the stats for these leggings.
I just got one

I just got one of these on the veeshan server and I'm looking to sell it, just send me a tell.

Why the Iron Bound Tome?
# Nov 20 2001 at 7:32 PM Rating: Excellent
I was surprised that it is not in the description, and nobody mentioned the real use for this book. From my point of view anyway, Since this book is the primary quest component for the Trooper Scale leggings, WAR/IKSAR only quest armor, It seems to me to be for that. There is some boring story line you get from doing the quest about how the book was lost or stolen and the Iksars want it back and how it is a magic book and so on.

This is one of the few armor quest items for (any) class that are NOT no-drop. You just buy the book off someone who has it, turn it in with some other items (store bought in town) and the Trooper Leggings are yours. Any Iksar can do the quest, but only Iksar wars can wear the leggings. You get good faction and pretty good exp for your troubles.

Here is what I consider key here: Iksars cannot wear plate armor and so at this comparable lvl, they have to have imbued cabilis scale leggings made by a high lvl master smith with the right ingredients to make the tempers and imbued gem; or they can auction to buy some other very expensive leggings. I paid 700pp and a forest loop for a Iron bound tome, just so that i could turn it in for my leggings that I still wear at 46th lvl and will prob wear for a while to come.

So if you get this book and are looking to sell it first try a "/who all iksar war 20 40" and find a buyer who needs the leggings. I had to auction for a long time to get a seller and never did. I had to hire a mercenary (54 necro) to come to LOIO zone and kill the advisor for me to get my book. The Advisor spawns next to the chancellor spawn, and is not too common of a spawn, and does not always have the book. My merc. camped the throne room while I hunted around lake ill omen stuff for experience and when the advisor was assisinated I paid off the necro, got my loot, and we both went on our ways.

Recap and thoughts for use

Some others have said this but I'll recap.
The effect is actually not triggered, but is a melee proc, and it will cancel magic on the wielder, not the mob that you're fighting.

One time I had "Strong Disease" on me. It literally lasted for 3 real time hours, maybe longer but I eventually had a friend cure it for me. This might be a nice easy way to get rid of unwanted spells effects on you, go kill some greenies.
#Anonymous, Posted: Sep 18 2001 at 4:27 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) is it me or are half the people here trying to just get rid of it? no one chanting "this item roxxor" or anything like that.
