Drop rate?
# Aug 17 2004 at 9:02 PM Rating: Decent
I know it says common, but this site lies alot and is a little outdated. How often does the set drop? I have a druid who will be lvl 44 soon, and will want to start campin. Also, how many ppl camp these othmirs? Im guessin a ******** because of the fur drops as well. Oh well, can't wait to get a set of this for some upcoming alts. Got a dwarf cleric itchin to wear this for a few levels, so I can test out the old stamina.

I bought these today on Veeshan for 150pp. I would say this is a good price, considering the massive stamina on this thing. I convinced myself not to waste all my money so I didn't buy any more of it. However, the guy was also selling a Crustacean Shell BP for 200, and Vambraces for 250pp. I hope this helps.

On Mintral Marr I got the bracers for 75, vampbracers for 100 (not bad), the greaves for 80, helm for 75, and the BP goes for around 200, but i decided i'd just keep my cheapo netherbian chintin, and the sheild was like 20-40 pp. Let me tell you if your making a tanking class, this is awesome twink armor, the AC is nice, Great Stamina, not bad Strength, and the -dex isn't that big, I boosted my dex up with a groteske mask which is REALLY cheap and i hope to get some black pearl rings soon. GL all this armor will serve you well!

If you get the full suit, how far does your Charasma plummet? I've got a Troll SK that I bever put "point one" into CHA and he's already got a Grotesque Helmet. Will I be run out on a rail wherever I go?

I sell these boots for 200plat on zebuxoruk have 8 pairs left for sale send aviak a tell

The Crustacean line of armor still goes for around 1k per peice on Morell Thule. Boots go for 800pp and I have seen the BP as high as 2k. I guess our economy isn't totally jacked yet. =) Maybe I should sell mine now and wait a few months for the prices to drop down to 2-300 per peice and buy it back.

bought boots for 100pp on veeshan. just to tell u =)
Over priced
# Jun 22 2001 at 11:04 AM Rating: Default
Well, Even I they are Great Boots, the price of 2k for them is far too high.

It is so easy to find some on the Nameless, that I got them for 150pp yesterday... but if someone want to buy them for me for 2K, they are yours :p

# Aug 09 2001 at 10:14 PM Rating: Decent
when this armor first was discovered it was going for OUTRAGEOUS prices(can still remeber stories of a friend being excited about getting a crutsty bracer for 1k..*sighs*)
only crustacean piece you should see being sold for more than 800p is the breastplate..

#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 17 2001 at 8:53 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) that can't be an accurate price for that piece of armor will be willing to pay around 5k for full set send a tell to SANDIMASS on tribunal if you have it to sell if not send me a tell anyway cuz i'm a cool guy and like to talks to people

Get the set!

73 STA, 37 STR.

That's what you'll gain if you get every piece (including two bracers). Look at that and drop your jaws folks, 73 STA adds massive amounts of HP to a character at high levels, easily 300!

Don't bash this armor... If I had the set and no proccing weapon, I'd gladly wear it.
Neg stats are NOT possible
# Apr 23 2001 at 10:26 PM Rating: Default
Geez people, negative stats are not possible. Neg resists, i'm not sure, but I know neg stats are impossible. I had an ogre one time, grotesque mask and other negative CHA items, so I had 10 CHA normally. I got sprayed by a skunk and it went down to 1 CHA, not the negative 15 some people claim it would be. Test it for yourself and load yourself up with 1k worth of copper at the bank, you'll have 1 agi, not some God-awful negative 1000 AGI.

Ok, take a Troll with very low CHA and outfit him with full Crustacean gear (if it exists for all slots)... what do you get? UGLY! Is it possible to have a negative CHA? Just curious. =)

I've gotten Negative Saves (Malice line of spells, Lowerelement, etc) before... Its not that hard...Just get someone to lower element a naked troll, because there goes all his fire resistance...The little bit he had anyway.
RE: Ugly!
# Mar 15 2001 at 12:16 AM Rating: Default
Minimum on any stat is 1, take all your money and convert it to copper at the bank sometime, you'll see what I mean. I thought that once your cha hits 1 you are KoS to everyone, as you count as having lowest possible faction (and therefore you can't loose anymore). But I'm not really sure.
RE: Ugly!
# Aug 07 2001 at 12:47 PM Rating: Default
Just as an FYI. You cannot drop below a 1 Charisma. For a while I was using the Pariah mask and two Goblin Bracers (total -45 Cha) which would have been enough to bring me to a 0, but actually only yielded a 1. It did not make me KOS to anyone though. As an SK, it did not appear to affect my spells either, though that is tougher to say.

Ok once and for all.
Yes it is possible to have neg resistest.
It is physically impossible to have neg stats, can't be done has been tested. read the other posts it explains why. try carring a 100000 copper. or just ask any decent level necro if they can get their charisma any lower then 1. They can't.
RE: Ugly!
# Jan 10 2001 at 3:43 AM Rating: Default
It's possible to have negative resists, so I assume you can have negative stats.
RE: Ugly!
# Feb 21 2001 at 12:11 PM Rating: Decent
Not possible to have neg CHA or neg stats.

I tested the idea with a dwarf with a forsaken pariah mask (-25 cha), Grotesque Mask (-9) a bit of minor neg cha gear and then went skunk hunting. With all the modifiers I should have been neg 7 cha but it would not go negative.

Another example of stats, try loading youself up with 400,000 copper. You will hit rock bottom on AGI with carrying far less.
RE: Ugly!
# Mar 07 2001 at 11:55 PM Rating: Default
How could you test it with both the pariah mask and a grotesque mask?
