On my server (Torvonnilous). These range about 300-500pp in the bazaar... I looked them up and they were the only 2 in the bazaar... one was 300 the other 500... Dont know why so cheap.. I would pay probably 1k at the most for this... Its nice! Its a good upgrade from my old cape anyways =P Icetooth pelt...

I bought this for my 31st lvl Bard since her hp are kinda low..With her I concentrated more on the dex, cha. Since I do charm alot..So this will definately help out in the HP area :)

Im thinking this might be nice for my ranger. The HP and STR are very welcome to any ranger. As for monks, my main is a monk, and he has spider fur. I think they two are too close to trade them for one another. Spider fur has 2 more AC which is no joke, and 3 STM. My monk would take 3 STM before 4 DEX anyday. STR both match. Comes down to 10 SVC + 2AC vs. 50HPS. Obviously the 50 HPS own both by far, but is it really worth that much more money? if you can get spider fur for a lot cheaper, then thats what i suggest thats what you do. Nowadays you can see spider fur cloaks around 200pp, and Shimmering will run you between 500-1k. BTW 0.0 weight = awesome for any class.

50HP > 2AC any day of the week, regardless of class. Shimmering Terror Hide Cloak is better than a Spider Fur Cloak by a decent margin.

However, you did mention price, and the price difference is something to keep in mind if you are strapped for cash. Shimmering Terror Hide tends to go for about double what a Spider Fur Cloak does. If you are lacking cash, Spider Fur Cloak is excellent, but if you can afford the price difference, Shimmering Terror Hide Cloak is much better.

I don't know what you guys are smoking but this goes for around 500pp on RZ, spider fur goes for 250pp on RZ so just makes sence

omg, I bought one of these for 180pp(not a typo) on EMarr in the Bazaar, either the person selling it didn't know how much is was worth, or he was just feeling generous. I didn't even know where it came from, til I'll looked on here and discovered it was from Icepaw. I thought it was from somewhere on Luclin, since that's where I bought it.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jul 18 2001 at 7:51 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) there is know way this is 5500 pp... it doesnt seem reasonable

It's very reasonable... if you're a monk.

Strength, Dex, Hit Points... and WEIGHTLESS. Very few totally weighless items in the game.

Traded one of these for an Iksar Regen BP the other day...

Since when has reason entered in to prices, last I checked items run for what ever a person thinks he can squeeze out of the buyer.
Good for everyone.

This cloak is nice for everyone. I use one and I'm a SK. There just simply aren't that many cloaks that are better than the lizardscale cloak and worse than a cof that don't require 200+ tailoring skill. HBC is an example of one such rare cloak, but it seems to go for around 5k on my server, and the stats are about the same as this.

What an awesome cloak. I bought one today for 3.5k on prexus. I think i got the upper hand out of this deal. Anyone know what this goes for? Allakhazam's is kinda wrong I think and avg price on eqprices was 16k...hmm hehe Its better than hooded black cloak and that goes for like up to 10k on prexus so i dunno.

Ok, this may be for a monk but its for a Rogue to. we need just as much none-weight as we can to!

this dropped from

one of the various possible named kobalds in the upper kobald camp. I think it was silly when a normal mob dropped an ac 10 cloak right after this one :p
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 20 2001 at 1:33 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Why the hell dont the people who report these new items say what mob they looted it off or what quest it came from? I really want one, but because the discoverer didnt tell we all now must just sit here and drool over it. If any one finds one please indentify the mob. Tanks

You know, the information states which zone the item is in. Why not get in a group, go there and explore instead of whinning because someone didn't say exactly which creature it dropped from and the exact spawn location with a guide on how to kill it? Sheesh

#REDACTED, Posted: Apr 01 2001 at 2:34 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) because some people enjoy finding these items for themselves and like to use this site as a resource to decide what to shoot for, not a step-by-step manual on how to find it.
wow.... Yuuummmmm...
# Jan 15 2001 at 4:25 PM Rating: Default
Being a monk myself, I can't help but to begin drooling. This is a pretty nice damn cloak! I want one!

Now all I need is about 25 more levels... hmmm...
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 13 2001 at 11:56 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This has MONK written all over it :)0.0 wt sweeeet
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 27 2001 at 7:32 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) *drool* i cant wait for VL....hmm only about 18 more levels :(
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 15 2001 at 7:40 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I see bard on this baby!
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 20 2001 at 1:17 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I still see monk. Weigh 0.0 and +50 hp? Can't beat that for a Monk (of course you can, but this is DANG nice) :)
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 18 2001 at 3:45 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You're stupid, blind, hellucenating or something. Look at the nice pic. NO WHERE does it say anything about any monk!!! Yall just dont pay attention.
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 30 2001 at 2:39 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Yeah, it says ALL/ALL. You figure it out dork.
