These seem to sell for alot on my server also other servers i have alts on.
I hail from Maelin, Bertox, and Tribunal. And on all 3 of my servers, i see them never under 50k. And run up to 200k.

I believe its mainly because its platemail a druid can wear. Not so much rarity. But platemail druid equipable. I prefer Noble Djorn tho hehe. wiz/nec/mage/enc in full no-drop platemail > Druid in full droppable platemail.

The stats are nice. But if you are looking for stats for twinks.
Lord Inquisitor Sseru/Matchless from WW Dragons can't be topped.

Hmm, I've had the full shiny plate druid look for a couple years now... never thought about this item as a plate breastplate though... wonder if it's plate in both old world and new graphics as some items are plate in the old graphics but weird and funky in the new graphics...

Druid in Plate
# May 25 2003 at 1:45 PM Rating: Excellent
Aye, I was a druid wearing a full set (graphic) Chest, legs, and arm of the Brown Chitin Type and Dyed it White, It look Pearlized I was so Uber (in my mind) ever one thought I was a Ranger cause i was useing a Bone Handelede Scimitar wich looks like a Black Acrylia Scimitar. I loved it then when for what was more WIS efficient, /sigh Acrylia Studded LOL so now im wearinf leather again.

GL to all you druids out there that want to not be the typical druid.

I thought Acrylia Studded had +8wis, while this has +10wis. Wouldn't that make this more mana efficent?

She said that she was wearing the Brown Chitin Chestplate, which if you don't have augmented has 0 wis (I should know, because I augmented mine with a 5wis augment). I'd LOVE to get my hands on these for druid my though! *whistles appreciatively*

After checking this out on the eqbeastlord forums it appears that this item is not in fact beastlord useable.

RE: Not wearable by Beastlord
# Mar 06 2004 at 8:39 AM Rating: Decent
That's correct. I was simply unsure about the item at the time because Alla's had it listed in the screenshot and data as BST useable way back when I posted. I figured I'd post and email Allakhazam after checking it out and I'm sure otheres did to get it updated ( which is was, quite rapidly, thanks! )

Full set of CC stuff, a parrying dagger, forged ******* sword, and a square helm really throw people for a loop.

Here, this steel-clad female woodelf wielding what looks like rogue weapons buffs, sows, then ports away before anyone can say anything or inspect.

I have actually got petitioned once for exploiting when I didn't reveal my class. The gm laughed when he showed up, so I 'swatted' him with pottery sketches. It was sweet =P

I pretty much don't care about getting the 'biggest and baddest' equipment in the game. I love to have fun, and a druid in FULL plate with non-druid weapons in hand is hilarious!

I think I'm the only druid on Lanys decked out this way. I haven't seen anyone else. They all went for their velious stuff. I'm unique by being the only shiny druid on Lanys =D
complete set

I could also be a crested helm as well. My ranger has one and it looks like that as well.

Not sure what that is, but looks cool 8)
# May 28 2002 at 9:43 AM Rating: Decent
I am not getting into the comparison game but my druid has a full set off cc for one reason only. Looks.

I have all the good stuff in bags so I can put it when I do heavy fighting but most of the time when you are goofing off or just in some easy xp group, it really doesnt matter. I hit 245 wis with full cc (and hammerfal bracer) with 950+ ac and around 1800hp. If thats not good enough to go kill stuff then man, you really are splitting hairs.

Why buy this?
# May 02 2002 at 10:06 AM Rating: Default
Get an Elysian Tunic instead. It's no-drop, but prolly just as easy to get if not easier.
RE: Why buy this?

For the look. Believe it or not, seeing a Druid in full plate is kind of cool :)
# Apr 28 2002 at 1:37 AM Rating: Default
question. poeple alays talk about a full set of this.... but I have yet to see a bracer...

anyone one have infor on a Crystal chitin bracer... and not the silver chitin one. even though it is nice
# Nov 29 2002 at 10:22 PM Rating: Default
Buy a silver chitin bracer, or a serpintine bracer same graphic

Edited, Fri Nov 29 22:00:29 2002
# Sep 07 2003 at 6:41 PM Rating: Decent
actually silver chitin wristband looks like chain, not plate, but yea serpintine would work

Edited, Sun Sep 7 19:38:14 2003
# May 01 2002 at 7:59 PM Rating: Decent
since there is no CC bracer just replace it with bracer of hammerfal, quest in skyshrine, it is the exact same texture as a crystal chitin bracer would be (undyed velious plate)

Since a couple people were asking what it looks like, I have submitted my portrait to Allakhazam in which I'm clad in a full suit of Crystal Chitin Armor. =)

OMG. just looked up your pic... looks damn fine for a druid :)

I just recently submitted a Luclin graphic on my druid. Hope it's updated soon.

It took forever to complete the set, but I love it.

Of course your all overlooking the best part of this breastplate..its now Beastlord Usuable! Do you have any idea how awesome this chest piece is for a "leather class" in the AC department alone this have even the planar beastlord equipment licked...if only they weren't 25k on vallon zek i might have eventually gotten one =)

Who cares if its rare. Any druid out there concerned with acquiring status symbols should go pick a new class anyways because there are few good looking attainable chest pieces out there (and I mean like 5). Lets look at the facts.

AC 25: Nice! But really of marginal importance in the field, druids are not supposed to get hit.
Cha +7 *cough* You won't spend much time trying to charm animals for exp, don't worry about it.
Agi +7: This is good because it helps with defense in general, fairly important. (see above)
Wis +10: Bingo there's the money shot. 10 is quite high, helps you maintain 200 and get resists at the same time, this is the most important feature, duh.
Mana 10: Hrm, nuff said.

This BP is worth 10k. It certainly pushes the planer BP Wis envelope and has nicely rounded stats. Look at some of the better non-planar BP's and CLICK on the pricing data to see the individual posts and I think you will agree that 10k is fair atm. Don't get all googlie eyed over this stuff as a low level druid, it takes severe time investments to get gear of this quality (saving to buy it or grouping to get it), don't even ask about 55+ spell buying... peace.

P.S. I still go anon, grab my sap of piety and all my leather looking gear, and run around looking like a lvl 9 saying I don't have sow yet when they ask and then they shoe me away.

CC CG is best for druid
# Dec 27 2001 at 11:59 PM Rating: Decent
My friend has this... hes a level 60 druid on Tarew Marr - its probably the best non quest druid chestplate there is...It can definitly compete with ES BP and therefore on our server at least would sell for at least 80k... Reason being it is just so damn rare that there are like 4 on the server- looks like Thurgadin Warrior Wood Elf quest armor or Thurgadin Bard quest armor...Very nice on druid - makes him look like a wood elf warrior/bard... All other classes that would use (cleric, shaman) can all have BETTER by the time they are even able to get this - there is without a doubt no better droppable druid bp - look what druids have - Treeweave, Foremans Tunic, Ulkhork Tunic, Fungi tunic (which he wore before this), this BP is a definite until Skyshrine/Kael BP.
RE: CC CG is best for druid
# Feb 17 2002 at 3:14 PM Rating: Decent
Sell for 80k? Um, no.

My main server is Tarew Marr, and my druid has been known to be a bit of an auction-ho (spending weeks at a time in EC, before going back to levelling). ES BP goes for under 20k on Tarew Marr (though I've seen it go for twice that...), and the Crystal Chitin Chestguard goes for under 10k. Only 4 on the server? Tarew Marr is one of the most heavily-farmed servers out there, and I've seen more than 4 for sale at one time. Rarely a day goes by that I'm running through EC that I don't see one of these for sale. Best for druid? By the time you can afford it, you're better off with planar gear/quest gear.
