I'd expect to see people price it at 10 to 15k, but in reality, it would probably sell for 5 or 6.

I've watched the price on the "Queen's Carapace" for a couple weeks. I was able to buy it for 30k. Maybe with all the uber guilds this is an easy drop now.

Actually... mithril is just another type of metal, like steel. It is suppose to be VERY rare in Middle Earth as what did exist of it has mostly been taken and subsequently lost by the dwarves. Yes, the mithril coat that Bilbo gives to Frodo is a chain shirt but, mithril could be worked in the same way as any other metal so it could be made into plate if you managed to pry it out of the cold, dead hands of a greedy little dwarf. =P

Bought this for 20k a couple weeks ago. After about three hours i did some auctions with it to the bazaar channel: got about 30 tells offering 15-20k since it is such an incredible twink bp for war/pal/sk. About five minutes later there were a few 30k offers and i ended up taking 30k and a soulstripper for it making a 15k resell. Anyways because of its rarity and no rec/req level with these stats it is worth 20kish on pc on ayonae ro although realistically if you wait a bit you can get closer to 30k np.

Hmm, i am wondering whic is better, crafted armor (the 51ac, 5sta, 10wis, 40hp/mana bp's)or this? Basically ac and wis vs str/dex hp and save? Any ideas? For a paladin

# Sep 27 2003 at 5:12 AM Rating: Default
if you're just looking at buying a bp, i would go for the carapace .the 15sta ,75hps and saves make it much more worthwhile for me, then the ac and wis . hp > all in my opinion .

well it highly depends on several factors. I'll do my best to list em out for ya.

1) Your Race & Diety
2) Your current lvl, resists, HP, AC and other stats
3) Your main role in groups & raids, as in are you the main tank in groups most of the time or not? How about raids? Whats your role during raids?
4) Whats most important to you?

This is a great BP, only a little bit lower AC than say the Blood Ember BP for SK's but with far different stats & much lower weight.

I would honestly look to either win this during a raid or to win a different No Drop BP during a diff raid. Buying a high-ish end BP is not a cheap thing to do and hardly ever returns you equal or close to the same pp you spent on it. There are some really good BP's out there that are not hard to get with just a single grp, so I'd do a little more searching & research if I were you. Think long and hard about what you need. take off your current BP and see what your stats are like, see what you'll need to work on, etc... Also, take off your weapon(s) for now and see what your stats are like when the BP is off too, that'll give you a better long-term idea of what you'll need b/c weapons change at a pretty good rate, dont get yourself locked into something you'll only regret later on. Just my 2cp

Why not go get this BP with a single group? The Queen is somewhat rare and all, but she is doable by a sigle group. With 65 druid 62 warrior 65 pally 62 monk 63 mage and 55 bard we took her easily. I was expecting a hard fight since we had no slowers, but we didn't really need them. Heck, I think we had more problems with the 8 mini spiders that spawned when we killed her than with the Queen herself.

All told though this is a rather nice bp. It could use a bit more ac, but, for the most part, hp is more important anyway. And it has a lot of hp. Our paladin in the group prefered his Skyshrine bp, and the warrior his Vindi bp, so the bard walked away very happy, heh.
not bad at all....

just to add my 2 cents worth..

15 sta.. nice.. 75 hp.. nice... 37 ac.. grrr.. little low....15 str .. not bad...5 to all saves.. nice..... over all i would wear it over most other pre/HoT/velious quest Bps and nice part is you get your guild a few of them and loan them to the newer plate classes till they get Hot/Kael drops.. which are realy rare..

GOOD BP, anyone who says otherwise is a fool.. besides the wench's camp is eiser to hold than HoT or Arena..

#REDACTED, Posted: May 30 2002 at 12:45 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The reason why druids and rangers cant wear this, is mainly, it comes from an animal. (to make plate) You have to have padding of a sort so the metal wont cut you open =P, generally the padding, is from bears, etc.
RE: the armor
# Sep 29 2002 at 12:45 PM Rating: Good
Actually that is pretty shoddy logic (this is for the first poster obviously) as druids are a leather class, which ALWAYS comes from animals. Rangers can also wear leather. Can wear the phase spider carapace which comes from the same sort of creature as the queen.

The real and only reason that they can't wear this is because sony verant didn't want them too. This item is tagged as Plate class.

The reason why druids and rangers can't wear this is because it is considered a PLATE item.

Druids are a leather class.
Rangers are a chain class.

RE: the armor
# Jul 18 2002 at 2:02 PM Rating: Default
But druids and rangers wear a lot of leather-type armours :) For a while I don't think druids even got any chain-class armor at all did they?
RE: the armor
# Jun 07 2002 at 11:07 AM Rating: Decent
Also, it's really hard to do the waving incantations and shoot a bow wearing heavy Plate armor.
RE: the armor
# Jan 23 2003 at 10:23 AM Rating: Decent
Druids also are the only ones who can wear Elysian armor, which is chain class.
RE: the armor
# Feb 20 2003 at 12:57 PM Rating: Decent
Elysian armor is DRU only, just becuz it looks like chain doesnt mean its CHAIN class.

Queen spider's carapace logically harder than other spiders, make it less flexable thus only plate class can wear, if you look from this point of view.

When we killed her she did drop two to our amazement. We read up on the mob and got ready to kill her when we noticed she was on track. We've been back many times since (and cleared her room) with no luck in her spawning. She must have a PH and be a very rare spawn because I've never seen her up again. I've had mine for probably 8 months or more and just going to upgrade it soon.

No, but maybe you do...

Why do some people post when they can smell the crap that they are talking?

I would s**t myself if someone came up to me and said "Here, this want it?" I tell you what, if someone gave this to me and I didn't have one of the 5 listed classes, you better believe I would soon after.

To qualify any statements, and no, I did not scroll down to read all the posts you refer to.

While a lower level character would certainly flip, I'm sure they were referring to the characters who can actually attain it. The five classes who could most make use of this, and can generally wear chitin, are Monks, Rogues, Rangers, Druids, and Shammies. However, this item is limited to plate classes only, who should have something much better by this level. Basically, getting together a big raid just to pass stuff down to someone's twink suxxors.
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 12 2001 at 10:39 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Okay, let me put it this way...
RE: Um
# Apr 04 2002 at 6:19 PM Rating: Default
Yea but at the level to attain this, you have a number of better options on AC, and AC is far more important than strength, dex etc. The resists and HP are what makes this worthwhile to someone who can attain it. The AC has much to be desired; the Str/dex/agi isn't of high importance compared with HP/resists.

I am trying to get a hold of one to replace my blood ember BP by virtue of it's HP, though I do not expect to keep it long. While the BP is good, there are a number of better options. All of the quest BPs, Vindi BP, etc. all have more AC and comperable/better HP (And Vindi also has some niceass resists, +15 to all is hard to beat).

RE: Um
# Dec 23 2002 at 4:13 PM Rating: Decent
Ok, Im really sick of people making this blanket statement. I know a ton of level 60+ Warriors who do not have a BP anywhere near as good as this. I've raided Hate at least 30 times, spent countless hours in both Kael and HoT and so far I've seen ONE Indo BP drop out of all of that. That means out of thousands of kills a single Warrior usable BP has dropped. I didn't get it, obviously. Out of the 7 Warriors in my guild which raids HoT regularly, one has a Vindi BP, one has Thurg, one has Hate and the rest of us are stuck with Engraved Royal Velium BPs. And as a matter of fact I would actually say that for all but a main tank, this is better than everything short of a SS BP simply for resists and HPs. Just because there are better BPs out there does not mean that everyone has them. Plate (specifically Warrior BPs) are among the rarest drops out there up until you can kill Vindi on a regular basis. This is a great BP even for Warriors if they don't have SS or better. And the fact that they can be passed on when something better drops makes them ever better. I plan on taking a group or 2 down to farm these for the guild soon.

Oh yea, "by the level to attain this" is a really dumb statement for this item since even guilds who can barely handle Kael Arena can handle this camp with a few groups.

im a 54 sk with stonewall mail this would be an upgrade a major upgrade as for "this item is limited to plate classes only, who should have something much better by this level" is a wrong statement. not everyone that can join a raid to kill this has better SK fear bp is 30ac and not nearly the stats this is. this would make an excellent DE SK bp cause it has str and sta as well as 5 to all resist 20 to pois. i am going to make sure i get to kill this queen as often as possible till i can get one, even if i have to lead it. DN isnt as hard as you may think one group can do alot here if they are mostly 51+ just need to work together and follow directions to the "D".

# Nov 25 2002 at 9:34 PM Rating: Default
I'm a 58 Warrior. All my Armor is Thurg or better except my BP. I haven't even seen a Warrior BP drop in Hate in all the tons of times we've cleared it. Our prime Tank has Vindi BP now, but our seconadary tank is in a Hate BP. It will probably be a long time before a Thurg or HoT Plate BP drops and is given to me. This BP would rock. Great STA, Great Saves, nice AC. I really wish people would quit assuming that every warrior in a big guild is in Myrmidons or Warlords. BPs are rare, and this is better than most.
