More rare than the BP

Aloha all

The barbed ringmail legs drops off Mr. Bled, and generally required a good level 60 group to get into the castle area to pull and kill.

The barbed ring tunic drops off several of the mobs in velks, but it is most commonly dropped off of Upper Dogs named mob Tpos Icepaw.

Since Upper deck was considered by some to be the best non-AoE exp pre-Luclin and Pre-PoP, there are a lot of the BPs floating around ( I think I have like 5 or so ...) However, since it required a much better group to go deeper, the legs were less often camped. and once gotton, are kept by the chain class people until they complete their Velious quest armours.

Hope that explains why the legs cost more (on drinal about 7k -- BPs are selling for 2500 ish)
Did I get a steal?

Lucky Me. Jumped on these for only 2300pp on Mith Marr about a week ago. Could not beleive they'd be that cheap. hehe
# Mar 07 2002 at 7:42 PM Rating: Decent
These are rarer than BP I think. Another reason its worth 20k might be because its better than most of the WW dragonarmors, except for matchless and the one below matchless.

Does anyone have any idea what these are selling for on The Rathe server? No one seems to ever know the price when I do a PC in the bazaar. The only answer I have gotten is 25K.... I cannot help but think that is very high for these.

Rare on my server
# Feb 23 2002 at 12:16 AM Rating: Default
As far as I know, these are quite rare on TP for some reason... saw a guy selling them at like, 20k, and that was the first pair I've ever seen. Maybe they just stay withen guilds; what do these drop off of anyway?
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 18 2002 at 5:09 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) sorry about double post...

These go for about 20k on Tarew Marr... very great legs... epecially for those who have no hope of getting to ToV because of too many uber guilds hehe...

What would be a good price on these things? Also, on a rogue, Ry'gorr or these (AC13 STA2 DEX2 MR3 CR5 HP5). I'm a barbie, if you were curious. That's Barbarian to all you newbies >:-p
# Sep 01 2002 at 5:09 PM Rating: Default
2 things stand out in my mind... One, you are asking for a PC then explaining that barbie means Barbarian. Anyone that doesn't know that would indeed qualify as a newb but therefore would be unlikely to give you an accurate PC so you're kinda spinning your wheels there. Two, the fact that you felt compelled to try and issue an explanation at all screams that you are either A: a newb yourself and trying to impress by repeating something you just learned or B: so condecending that most newbs would ignore your comments no matter how valid or invalid they may be. So, though my comments were a little more drawn out and with a little less sarcasm than Dakanmer for instance =) I have to agree with the spirit of his reply. In other words, you've now been flamed not once but twice. If it's any consolation to you though it's my first time, which I guess makes me a newb flamer... =) All in good fun peeps, all in good fun...

I kind of ignored it anyways, and ive been playing 5 years.

Nice item

Well for anyone on Terris-Thule server good luck getting a group in Velks under 50, unless your a 48 or 49 enchanter. This zone is almost always packed with at least 40 or more people. We took this guy out a couple days ago, unfortunately he dropped the Barbed Ringmail Vambraces 20ac 3dex 3wis. These legs have about the same ac as DW Greaves and I hardly think they could be considered a twink item. When we took Bledrek we had over 2 full groups of 55+, and he was quite a handful, the best strategy imo is the main tank strategy, worked very well for us. Good Luck
# Sep 17 2001 at 11:11 PM Rating: Decent
bled dropped these for me, bledrek hits for 400ish+ i suggest 2 groups 55+ minimum.

you will never find these for sale. myself... ill be handing these down to a guildmate when i get blood lords or blood runed legs.

Well now the Bazaar is in effect we have no more auc hell going on. I have seen these going for 3k. Maybe I know a little football who would want to go get some? eh Del?

These blow away the gay ol darkscale greaves, black ice greaves, etc... one of, if not the best leg pieces droppable for the classes listed, even warrior. I personally wouldn't wear them as a shaman but thats just because I have spirit weaver's greaves. If I still had jarcrap leggings or plane of hate greaves i'd take these in a heartbeat.

Apparently this now drops from Bled. He is the minature version (they spawn after the large version is killed) of a named golem, level 51.

Going to need 2 groups 50-60 for them.
RE: Drop
# Feb 21 2002 at 5:35 PM Rating: Default
Taken Bledrek and Bled down with one group many times. last night was 60 warrior 59 mage 53 cleric 50something wizard 60 chanter and 60 rogue
# Jul 10 2001 at 3:21 PM Rating: Decent
Don't forget the bards! Sometimes other armor can get too heavy for us, and the way these play out would work great for us! A whole set of barbed ringmail would be better than Lambent, I say.
RE: Hey!
# Jun 14 2002 at 5:43 AM Rating: Decent
Dude, from one bard to another, this blows lambent away. SS greaves are darn near impossible to come by, these on the other hand, are easier to get, and almost as good. Personally, I'm thinking of hitting Velk's up some time now.

# Jul 10 2001 at 10:45 AM Rating: Decent
These maybe a little harder to go now after the upgrade. I'm not sure on rarity. I beleave them to be a Kobalt drop.
# Jul 10 2001 at 10:12 AM Rating: Decent
I can see the Rangers getting ideas now =)

The Armor Class on these would be great for them I'd say. Rogues and Shaman too.
Not easy at 45
# Jul 10 2001 at 9:45 AM Rating: Default
I suppose it is humanly possible for a full group or probably 2 full groups of L45 people with really good gear and skills might have a snowballs chance in hell of getting this item.
But don't get your hopes up. Velks isn't really a L45 dungeon anymore, the mobs have been upped in level. that's why the drops are so good.
You'd probably do a lot better there with a group around 50-55.
RE: Not easy at 45
# Sep 08 2001 at 7:34 AM Rating: Decent
actually i'd say more like 55-60. anyone below 55 will really hold the group back. these mobs are really badass and will resist almost everything if you're not a higher level than the mob itself. and a tank lower than the mob will get trashed, cleric wont be able to heal ya fast enough.

level obtained is a little off, barbed ringmail drop off the crystal gargoyle people behind the kobalds... lvl has always been 55 doable with one group but it can turn bad real fast if your not careful.
I'll never see them
# Jul 10 2001 at 8:31 AM Rating: Decent
Not sure why Timog says "twink item". I'm a 48 ranger and I have Ry`Gorr leggings. I would GLADLY trade them for these. I would imagine these selling for quite a bit.

Someone in GD last night was auctioning a 30 AC Barbed Ringmail piece. Sounds like he found the tunic. He was sure to include "(rare)" in his auction. I suppose there are people out there that deal in antiquities and rarities! :-)
#Anonymous, Posted: Jul 10 2001 at 4:33 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) That's the first thing that comes across your mind? Nice "twink" item?
Pretty Nice
# Jul 09 2001 at 10:27 PM Rating: Default
This is pretty nice item, around the same stats as silver-plated leggings if you ask me. Might want to try and check those out sometime too.
# Jul 09 2001 at 6:17 PM Rating: Decent
Wow. Really think these are attainable at level 45? If so, I'll be getting them ASAP... Nice twink item.. Best tradeable legs I've ever seen...

I'm told Velks has recently been tweaked to make it feasible for high 40s groups to hunt there. That said, I would expect these things (AC 25! on legs!) to drop somewhat deeper in than a 45-50 group might want to go.

But it might be random drop off anything, you never know!
RE: Nice
# Jul 10 2001 at 9:03 AM Rating: Decent
Velketors Lab was recently upgraded. I seriously doubt any level 45 group could get to where these drop and survive. Level 50 group. Doubtful, but possible. Mid-50s, yes.

It used to be that the spiders at the entrance turned green to mid-50 players. Since the recent update to the zone, nothing in the zone is green even to a level 60 player.

It also seems that since the mobs are tougher (higher level), the drops have better stats as well. I got the Barbed Ringmail BP the other night, and it had 30 AC. The sites I checked showed it having 25 AC. So that must have been from the lower level version of the zone.
RE: Nice
# Jul 10 2001 at 8:51 AM Rating: Decent
Velks was recently updated... meaning upgraded. About the lowest level players I have seen there lately have been low 50s. Even the entrance mobs are blue to a level 60 player now.

As far as getting back to where you get these, I woul suspect a solid group of mid-50 players could do it.

Its a nice item, as are the other Barbed Ringmail drops. I got the BP the other night, and the AC 30 on it is nice. Seems it was upgraded from the previous AC 25 when the zone was updated.
RE: Nice
# Jul 09 2001 at 9:45 PM Rating: Decent
Hmm, maybe this will become the legging version of the "Treeweave" ? Course this zone still isnt hunted that much, at least not on my server. Give it some time though, I can see it happening,,,
RE: Nice
# Sep 08 2001 at 7:37 AM Rating: Decent
these are much rarer and harder to get than a treeweave.
RE: Nice
# Jul 09 2001 at 9:26 PM Rating: Decent
I suppose it's possible to loot these @ 45, but it's unlikely.
