If you need Cha and Dex, just use the Rings that do like 7dex/5cha or something like that. I see those rings go for not to much around my server, and the armor is not to bad. I just use the boots =)
A Note About Fear
# Feb 26 2003 at 11:41 PM Rating: Decent
Yes I know... off-topic. I saw a lot of discussion about Charisma and its effect on Fear while doing research on this Crusty gear.

Fear is completely, 100%, in no way shape or form, effected by charisma. I've done fears with 51 CHA, and fears with 125 CHA. They last the same ammount of time.

Charisma affects vendor selling, and charms. Period. End of discussion.

I sold both my wurmslayer and Centi longsword just to be diferent and picked up 2 Yaks , now I need more dex and considering selling the 2 peices. Saryn server if anyone is interested name is Bizerk

I currently have 5 pairs of these sitting in my bank. Two of which are going to a couple of my lower level friends. Then one pair is going to my 51 warrior. Will sell the other 3 =). These seem to be getting more common, they drop almost as often as the other crustacean armor, the BP though is rare.

'Your faction standing with, Othmir, could not possibly get any worse'

Oh yea Quad Kitin' my way into level 60 =).
Love this armor

I bought a full suit of crustacean shell armor for my Dark elf Shadowknight for 1k only! Shes now got 145str with Siphon Strength on and 153sta using the shield and MoSS/Sword of Skyfire. I love this stuff, inexpensive, awesome stats and AC, just all around good. The only ppl that care about CHA anyway are chanters...not much good for anything else

maybe i misread. but SK's DONOT need cha, except when selling loot to vendors.

It's plate. Iksars can't wear plate, therefore, they can't wear this.
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

I sold these leggings for 700plat no problem on nameless. I didn't have to haggle or anything for this piece when i finally got someone to ask me the price on it and wanted to buy it. You know, some people just ask prices...

how much are you guys selling this for?
Stats on this stuff
# Jun 05 2001 at 10:34 PM Rating: Decent
This is the ideal armor for a Dark Elf Shadow Knight. The negative Cha. on this armor is heaven because Fear sticks better and lasts longer when your Cha. is lower. The negative Dex isn't too bad and you can just put +dex/str or +dex/agi rings on. The AC is good. But the greatest part is the Str and Sta. DE SKs get ****** out of Str and Sta. If you are a Ogre or Troll, get Sentient because that is the armor for you. DEs have enough Int as it is so this armor is what to get. Peace

this armor seems to hate Dex..which is no goood for bards..i think Verant should becareful with that since bards dont get a lot of the cool tank gear and by giving us this only to take Dex is kind of annoying

RE: Bard

well.. it's crustacean shell armor. I would imagine that would mean it's made out of shells or whatnot, not exactly ideal armor to move around in, hence the lack of agi and decrease in dexterity.
# May 21 2001 at 1:24 PM Rating: Default
Yeah.. but the dex affects your proc .. negative in this case =(
# Jun 02 2001 at 10:19 AM Rating: Default
But with the str buffs just use the ring slots for the +6 agi +6dex rings it will make up for it big time
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 27 2001 at 12:38 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Charisma also effects faction.
RE: faction
# May 22 2001 at 3:36 AM Rating: Good
Charisma does not affect faction in any way whatsoever.
RE: faction
# May 31 2002 at 4:51 PM Rating: Decent
No charisma does not affect faction, but it does affect vendor prices. Selling with a set of this stuff on and a full inventory would be a nightmare...

# Jan 26 2001 at 7:19 PM Rating: Decent
what color do they appear as ?
RE: Color ?
# Jul 28 2002 at 11:03 AM Rating: Default
look like bronze only different patterns, flame like on a male de. not too bad... but with new luclin models, makes you look like a fat newbie in bronze armor. ghey. i dont mind the graphics, but ANY other color would have been better.

Color of darker reddish-brown seaweed. If you go to the beach alot, as I do, this armor brings back memories of the sea.

Charisma is only for charming and prices, that is it.

Brad mcquaid verified this some time ago and its in the Eqcaster's real stat description area verbatim.

It does however affect the Fear line of spells so the lower your CHA the less you'll be resisted.

# Dec 05 2001 at 2:32 AM Rating: Decent
I have heard a few people say that low cha helps your fear stick. I was wondering if this has been verified. Also, I wonder if it affects the fear animal type spells. I have a lvl 43 ranger who fear kites alot of critters. At that lvl she has the crappiest fear animal spell: 'panic animal'. I have a charisma of 79. I have no trouble getting my fear to stick whatsoever. It is almost never resisted when fighting blue cons. It seems to do the full duration as well.

A very high level necromancer posted on the Verant Newbie Zone that in all his experiments, charisma had NO effect, whether high or low charisma on the ability to stick fear, or the duration.
