I don't care about looks in EQ if it is good I'll wear it if I can get it. I don't care about looking good that doesn't help you fight any better.
Silver not white.

It's Silver.... not White.... =P

stats and AC aside I would love to get some of this if it is white. I would find great humor in being an Iksar decked out looking like a pally

What are you guys talking about??? This is some ofof, if not the best looking armor for Shadow Knights, and it is Hands down, no discussion the best armor for Shadow Knights. Look at all the lvl 60 Sk's with their epic on your server and you will see them wearing this equipment. I mean Who could think gold armor looks bad??? This is pimp armor all the way!! I am a lvl 50 sk and I go to POG every chance I get I dream of the day I snag a piece of this bad **** armor!

Ok this equipment is very nice and since this post is older i will not call u a newbie or anything....but this armor isn't even close to being the best armor for Shadowknights.
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 29 2001 at 12:01 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This is some RAD armor! Except for the "Best" Armor in the game...All armor is beaten by other pieces AC and Stat wise. Just get what you are after and STFU! I will be getting this, even if they change it to Pink =P Don't be so b!tchy about it. If you want some good looking "SK" armor, Take me along on your planar raids...I'll gladly loot the Noct armor and give you my Darkforge! Then i may look "pansy", but I'll drop your sorry @$$ in 10 seconds!

If you're a guy, go wear a dress outside and see what it feels like... sure you might get some strange looks, and some people asking why. But to some people this game isn't about having +1 more strength and +2 resist cold if they can have something a little bit worse, and a LOT better looking... say what you will, but i would sell a treeweave if I got it, cause I would never wear that leather looking POS when I could use my DreadScale BP.
What's wrong with looking good while doing your job? and I seriously don't think that you could do THAT much better with this armor. We have to stop worrying about being loot whores and stats, when seriously, what difference does a few str and some AC do?... still doesn't stop a dumb warrior from NOT training taunt, or a cleric from casting stuns till he's out of mana when he's the main healer...
how you play the game is MUCH more important than your equip... ask any high lvl guild. Equip just makes what you do easier and more efficient.

I was lucky enough to score some of this armor last night, and you need to see the new graphics. I'm on the better stats=happy shadow knight bandwagon, but it looks better anyway. It's silver, so you look like a damn Pally if you are a Human or Erudite, but it doesn't look bad at all. The pre SoL look of this stuff is horrid though.

hell when it comes down to it, no one's ever going to have a full set of noc, or BE, i would take blood ember greaves over these anyday cause of feign death. id rather have a couple less str and live than lose a ******** of exp with a couple extra stats. have to admit, white with gems sounds like a sissy pally to me than an eeeevil knight of necromancy. ah well. mixing armor is the best way to take advantage of best stats/spells. would save a spot on spell list where feign would be!
RE: hmmm
# Mar 25 2001 at 2:48 AM Rating: Default
LOL you obviously have no knowledge about BE or you'd want the noct greaves instead (im assuming BE greaves have the same AC as noct greaves, otherwise BE would be better)

the casting time on blood ember peices is horrifically long....if you plan on using BE greaves' FD for pulling and what-not then think again...
RE: hmmm
# May 17 2001 at 8:02 AM Rating: Decent
Also at 60 we get improved FD. I think its 60. NOC totaly smokes BE in every way. You would be crazy not to want this so i have to agree with you and cast time on BE SUCKS ASSSSSSS what waste. Also for invis dont use be use the crown form temple of droga think insta invis while running its sweeeeeeeet
RE: hmmm

The crown that Kynan is referring to is the circlet of shadow, dropped off the named guard near chief rotgus. His rare drop is some 8ac 15str all/all gaunts, not so common is the cos, which is right click gather shadows even while it sits in an open inventory slot. Very nice. 0 cast time. As for the BE vs. Noc armor: Yeah, noc has stats and a tiny bit less AC. Go for noc if you can get it, but if you lack 20 or so friends who are willing to risk unretrievable corpses in pog when the protectors of growth spawn and wipe out a couple dozen of your raid members, then go for BE. BE is buyable, even though it costs a lot. Noc is no drop.

Correction the color of the armor is not white, Its a tan yellow and looks very good on a DE SK.
# Dec 26 2000 at 10:13 PM Rating: Decent
Could someone post a pic or link of a picture of someone wearing this armor?
better thank BE
# Dec 26 2000 at 2:28 PM Rating: Default
Its better than blood ember though. And about the white i'd have to see it on a DE SK first. I'd take this over BE any day.

white?!?! good lord no. i think if i had to pick a color in the spectrum it would be a color halfway between lambent blue and black. a nice dark color, yet different enough to be a status symbol. has anyone seen a helm? does it have a graphic yet?
# Dec 15 2000 at 1:58 PM Rating: Default
hybrids ac on this item falls far short of warrior items. 10 ac is a huge difference especially with the defense skill of a warrior being higher. but iksars with the ac bonus should get awesome ac.
RE: yup
# Oct 25 2001 at 10:16 AM Rating: Decent
just to set it straight SK defense caps same as warrior. as for verant saying we are a defensive class and they give us SKs offensive spells some of the best dmging wepons ,but, with armor no where near the ac of warriors, is just preposterous on their part. if verant wants us to be defensive our armor should be closer to warriors ac. but since when did verant make any sense :P. *SIGH* oh well.
RE: yup
# Dec 17 2000 at 10:10 PM Rating: Default
all of the items so far have been like that, the bracer is 1 ac less than BE, the boots are the same ac as i remember, we get a hell of alot less AC, most likely because they made it Iksar usable which sucks. Warrior bp is 47 ac compared to our 42, hell a set of warrior pants in velks lab is 36 ac. To make matters worse all of this gear LOOKS bad, its white, and it has gems embedded in it.. sigh
RE: yup
# Dec 18 2000 at 9:34 PM Rating: Good
It's white! Who was the moron at Verant that thought Shadowknights needed white armor!


I am happy for the iksars, because they have whined (legitimately) for a long time. I figured there would be a new armor set that encompassed all SK races in one of the new planes, so I'm happy for them.

I was also hoping for something on par with BE AC, but with stats instead of spells (I hate the waste of a spell on an armor piece and thus was only ever trying to get BE for the AC. I felt cheated on the BE stuff...), and for the most part it sounds like this armor is near what BE is.

But the look is important.... white?!?! I would have been totally happy with a plane old black armor that kept us dark. Or something dark and interesting. I'm not a white knight. Damn Verant...

RE: yup
# Sep 27 2001 at 12:49 AM Rating: Default
Are you kidding? A white and gold armor would be soooo nice. It's... unpredictable, hehe. The greatest evil is always the lurking one, the non apparent. Hell, a de or troll sk, you can see them coming from miles away and they just look silly trying to look evil. That's why I made a human sk, they're a bit more subtle, a bit more discreate. And by that a hell of alot more sinister then any other sk race.
Good for us lizards, though
# Dec 18 2000 at 2:46 PM Rating: Decent
I'm drooling. My iksar SK could really use these. Looks like Verant finally answered the prayers of us scaly folk and created us some decent high level armor.
