I killed a ton of Ulthorks and this item never once droped for me.

I got many glove boots and caps, plus the occasional sleeves. But never got the tunic.

The tusk are the drop to look for here.

These only drop from the Ulthork Man-o-wars. The pieces your getting drop from the Ulthork hunters and warriors.

Don't know about this...

Don't know about that 35 hitpoint loss - the CHR is no big deal - just take it off when you sell, but the 35 hitpoints - especially on a pally or a ranger - even a monk...

what if a level 1 newbie wears this? will he die?
RE: level 1
# Apr 17 2002 at 7:39 PM Rating: Excellent
YEs, this BP can kill you if you have less than 35hp when you equip it.

You can also die if you unequip and item that has positive hp and you are below that number. IE you're at 35hp and you take off your 5ac 55hp ring.

This is not true anymore. The last patch will not let you equip or unequip an item if it will cause you to die.

Was wandering through Greater Faydark today where I found someone auctioning this for 20pp. Never heard of it but I liked the +3 WIS so I figured what the heck. Figured it was just a nice upgrade from my patchwork tunic. Didn't realize I was getting such a good deal. :)

at lvl 11 that 35 mana translantes to 11.5 wis for you. So a grand total of 14.5 wisdom.Ie making you 00bah twink at that level

Even at lvl 50 the 35 mana = 3.5wis so 6.5 total still more than a Natures Shroud. It takes till lvl 60 when a Natures shroud = 72 mana and a Ulth tunic = 71 mana.

No, there is nothing special looking about this armor on the new models. Not nearly as cool looking as they were on the old models.

Ulthork and Tizmac has the same look
# Aug 07 2001 at 7:08 PM Rating: Decent
Yes, Ulthork and Tizmac armor have the same look, just check here on Allakhazam the fashion tables of the Equipment link.
Here is a link to a pic of how it looks.

Does the Tizmak tunic has same graphic as the Ulthork hide tunic?
#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 22 2001 at 10:39 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Does the Tizmak tunic has same graphy as the Ulthork hide tunic?
#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 22 2001 at 8:47 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hey druids do get the shaft, well Halfling druids anyway, we can't wear half the "hide" armors because they only fit medium droods. Yea Halflings may level faster but man are we restricted in what we wear... I mean it's bad enough we have to wear hides (which makes no sense, we PROTECT the animals so why do we wear their skins?) but as a halfling we can't wear half the hide armors because we are small... there should be a tailoring skill that allows us to make hide and leather armor smaller.. i.e. medium to small. Imagine my embarassment when I bought full tizmak only to learn after that I can't wear it because it's medium only... bah!!!
RE: Halflings getting the shaft!!!
# Jul 31 2001 at 7:54 AM Rating: Decent
We can wear Ulthork, which this item is, and it's better than Tizmak. Also we can wear Vale, which has some decent pieces, especially the boots. As a halfling druid I've never had problems finding good items.

# Jul 30 2001 at 7:43 PM Rating: Decent
You guys have lots of armors that wood elfs can't wear. In fact you can wear a easy to get small Scarab BreastPlate that will last you quite awhile. There are also several others armors that you can wear that wood elf's can't.
# Jul 06 2001 at 3:11 PM Rating: Decent
You have to edit your eqclient.ini file. Where it says armor, you have to change it from false to true. I'd make a back up in case you mess something up. Plus, it adds a lot of time to loading EQ because it has to load the Velious Armor.
why cant see it?
# Jun 25 2001 at 6:43 PM Rating: Default
i have velious i did the optional patch and i still cant see my ulthork armor it looks like leather!
Good Item
# May 20 2001 at 6:10 PM Rating: Decent
I have been debating to wear this over my bcp for awhile, yet the 35 mana was the deciding factor also it has 1 more ac then the bcp, and yes 35 mana isn't much 1 wisdom isn't much but when you have some mana here on your chest and some mana on your other items it all adds up just like wisdom items
the rest of the armor
# May 18 2001 at 6:40 PM Rating: Excellent
Well, i hunt ulthorks on the northern shore. They drop about every armor of ulthork you can think of except tunics. Gloves, arms, legs, head, bracers and not only once, but alot of times...

I am guessing the tunics are held in the pockets of the Man O Wars in the southwestern part of the map, and with 50 killed ulthorks for my lvl from 39 to 40 i've yet to see the tunic drop from a ulthork warrior or hunter. Man O Wars is the thing needed to be killed for these. I saw one on a woodelf male and they looked awesome...
RE: the rest of the armor
# Jun 15 2001 at 10:38 AM Rating: Default
I dunno about the N Shore, but i killed 10 man O wars today. Got 2 BP's, 1 collar, and 1 gloves.

I would not mind staying for more, but as a fear kiting necro, the walrusses are too thick and sometimes argo on me and pet while pulling.

My friendwas using it till 55 cause it put him at 197wis(no he didn't max wis like he should have) hes got his ES bp though.
#Anonymous, Posted: May 02 2001 at 10:19 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This armor is soooo damn common. When lvled on ulthorks I @#$%ing tossed it. IT is not worth more than maybe 30pp to a newbie. Seriously if your past 40 and using it, YOU ARE SAD! I had a druid friend that wore it til he was 52 and everyday he said how pitiful he was. OH and u say u got max wisdom ... try getting some other mana/ resist gear item and wearing a shroud! Ulthork is POS and druids got shafted in velious. MY GOD if you spend over 100pp for this POS YOUR A MORON!

And I can guarantee that you haven't seen more than one ulthork tunic drop, if any.

Ulthork tunics will ONLY drop off of ulthork man o wars. I have hunted well over 500 hunters/warriors according to my log and never saw one drop, but instead saw dozens of the pieces other than tunic/legs/neck drop (the only one really worth anything being the arms).
With a group of people averaging level 50 hunting for a few hours in the southwest corner of the eastern wastes, we killed around 80 walruses and 20 ulthork man o wars--you have to kill the walruses to make the ulthork spawn there, making them much less common than warriors and hunters...not to mention that the man o wars are level 40-42 instead of 29-32 (hunters) and 34-36 (warriors). Level ranges might be a bit off but they should be close.
In a few hours hunting as many walruses/ulthork as we could with a full 50-ish group (over 80 walruses and 20 ulthork man o wars), we had ONE piece of ulthork armor drop, the tunic. It is far, far from the 1 in 3 drop you seem to claim, and ignores the effort needed to make the ulthork man o wars spawn.

Let's compare this tunic with a few others that druids commonly use...
Foreman's tunic: AC 10 str+3 wis+3. Usually the first tunic with a wis bonus; decent AC too. 100pp.
Brown chitin protector: AC 12 dex+9 sta+9 agi+9. Better AC but the stats are near useless to a druid. 300pp, give or take 200.
Tree weave: AC 25 str+10. Excellent AC but no boost to wis or mana. 2k.
Shroud of nature: AC 13 wis+6 sv fire+8 sv cold+8. Decent AC, very nice wisdom bonus and resists. 4k.

The ulthork hide tunic has equal or better AC than all but the tree weave, and until level 59 gives more mana than all of them. -5 cha means nothing except in specific situations (charming, which a druid does only rarely, and buying/selling with vendors, where if the prices they give matters you should be carrying a separate set of charisma gear anyway). It is mostly the lack of resists, and partly the -35 hp, that makes the ulthork tunic worth 1k instead of 4k like the shroud.

And as far as druids getting shafted in Velious...what about Kromrif Military Leggings? Crystalline belt? Giant scalemail sleeves? Crystalline eye? Cobalt drake belt (tailored)? Crystal chitin shield? Lodizal shell shield? Coldain skin gloves? Square helm? etc....There's a LOT of nice stuff out there for us. (Granted, most of it usable by other classes too, but still...)

Ive kited and killed a few man o wars at level 52...
Im sure druids can too.
# Jan 13 2002 at 5:00 PM Rating: Decent
yes its rare, but if u need a full 50 group to do man O wars, i feel for ya =p At 51 as a monk i can almost solo them LOL id say most you need on them is 50+ tank and a healer of sorts, they hit hard and have a few hps but not like seafury homers do..though they hit a bit harder than the homers. If i had had a cleric/druid handy could have pulled them constantly with not alot of downtime, i had no buffs and had to FD at a bub of health but the manOwar was in the same condision so buffed up i could solo with half life left, cleric heals go again.

You are the only idiot here. If you had any knowledge of a Wis caster what so ever you would know that this item is not worthless! It is one of the best druid tunics you can get that is not uber or priced incredibly high! 35 hp and 5 charisma do not mean jack to a druid. 3 wis is nice, and 35 mana is very nice, especially if your over 200 wis.

Until you can complete the druid velium tunic quest, or get some other uber druid armor, stick with this. Who ever posted this topic is a moron. This tunic is well worth 800pp, and I have seen people paying upwards of 1500pp.
# Jan 08 2002 at 4:10 AM Rating: Decent
druid = wis caster

wis caster != druid

I know my shaman wont even consider it an alternative. The ac is kinda pathetic and minus hp is just... bad.

But then again druid need all the mana, and they can only wear leather, so this will be a nice upgrade.
# May 02 2001 at 5:06 AM Rating: Default
You have to change something in your egclient.ini
and change VeliousArmor files from FALSE to TRUE. that should make it. Or check the other LoadArmor settings if they are on FALSE. If so chnage them as well to TRUE. Happened with my rygorr stuff as well.
