3 more belts in 3 days. Try the mob that's at the entrence to the Umbral zoneline. More often than not, he drops the belt (I hit umbral & akheva once a day). So in the space of a weeks or so, I have over 6 belts...I'm pretty sure it's the mob at Umbral zoneline that drops it consistently.
The belt drop now seems to be common

I've gotten 3 belts in 3 days. I'm thinking it's now a common drop?
Nice drop for a berserker!

This belt dropped last night on Stromm from one of the Xin Thal Centiens in the ruins east of the DSP zoneline.
/ran 0 100 and it went to a friggen berserker who really really needs that 15 wis hehe, had a good laugh on that one.
Guild group anyway so no one cared about who it's best for or if there's way better in the game blah blah etc.
Nice drop, nice roll, gratz bud on the nice AC and str.
We also got a Stone Idol, Shaded Blade and 2 Vah Shir Claw Earrings over the past 2 days.
Group was 65 rng, 57 pal, 53 ber, 53 clr and 56 bard and had little problem handling 2 Centiens at once. The centiens can nuke for over 600 and depending on the class, can complete heal themselves.

I got this when i was lvl like 32 on my beastlord. Some friends of mine were killing these and i was just playing around waiting to loot one of those clubs the gorangas dropped and this dropped nobody had a alt close by so i picked it up =).
PLEASE don't hate me!

Okay - Just wanna make a point that these are not as rare as you might think. At the time, I boxed my 62 Beast and my 57 chanter. I would sit on the left side of the Vex entrance. I would just single pull. I parked all my alts (none of which are lower than lvl 32 and in one week I got the following:

7 Axgoreth's Belt of Defenses
4 Grodan's Idols
2 Transient Arms
2 Shaded Shields
3 Shrouded Medallions
3 Medallion of the Magi'kot - which rotted
1 Centi Warspear
3 Vah Shir Claw Earrings
4 Stone Idols
1 Centi shortsword
1 Centi Warhammer
1 Shaded Dagger
3 Spell: Mental Corruptions
some other spells drops and a bunch of other stuff...

1 Slighted Pauldrons - Thanks to a group that was there and didn't have a need for it.

a lucky night
# Jul 24 2003 at 12:55 PM Rating: Default
So last night, i'm gettin sick of PoP LFG, so I decide to go work on my epic for a lil bit.

I ran across ME no problems and set up camp at the zoneline to UP. Started pulling Xi's and Xin's and wouldn't you know it the FIRST Xin Thall Centien I kill drops this wicked belt. Well, I made the judgement call to replace my Spiked Seahorse Hide Belt with this one, and trade the belt for a CoCW. I suffered a 40hp loss, and like a 2atk loss, and some SV losses, but I gained about 40 mana from this trade-off, and have 230wis now with KEI and I gained 2% haste and a little bit more dex. Overall I think its a good exchange til I get my epic, at which time I'll likely sell the CoCW and buy a Hierophant's cloak.

First kill though, that was sweet.
easy

As a 62 bard, i was killing these for the sake of boredom in the zone. Killed around a dozen, only earring dropped once. With resist song up, resisted around 90% of spells. Any adds were charmed to take the nukes, depleting the casters of their mana for no CH. Just a kinda fun place to hang out for awhile, its quiet there on Kane Bayle.
Guild Raid
# May 19 2003 at 12:20 PM Rating: Decent
Breakdown of guild raid this last weekend. Had 2 full groups ranging in level from 46 to 62. Straight in from DSP through the entrance to outpost then a hard left along the wall to the corner camp. Had a SK FD pulling. We got three of these belts, a Vah Shir Earring and a neck item I can't think of the name of for the life of me. Also got quite a few needed spell drops for the group. Overall was there a little less than three hours, very much successful.

Just a quick paste from a small lower-level raid summary -

Raid Summary

Awesome job guys. We farmed a ton of items from Maiden's.

I counted (7) Belts of Axegoreth, (1) Belt of Defiance, (3) Shrouded Medallions, (2) Stone Idols, (1) Shaded Sword, and a bunch of spells in less than 3 hours!

EDIT: Also had 2 or 3 of these: Forhal's Gauntlets! We moved in straight thru to the ruins, and made a hard left at the entrance, pitched tents in the corner camp. Had a couple people that got waylaid and sunk, but in ten minutes all had rez's and were ready to go.

Jyaxor pulled 2's and 3's at a time, 4-arms and Xi's, and they went down fast. Lots and lots of drops.


That camp across from DSP and to the left (once you get inside, up on the outer zone-wall) is the key.

Happy Farming! Glad to see these great items are a bit more common than before. Cmon SoE, up the Centi LS drops once again! :)

This is NOT rare. This is More common then any other drops we have seen. We have gotten 6 or 7 in less then 48 Hours Camping these for Guildies. These drop almsot as common as spell drops.
RE: RARE?????
# May 09 2003 at 2:26 PM Rating: Decent
Just thought I'd concur, picked up 2 of these in one night, along with 3 spells (to many other drops to list) went to a beastlord first, monk second. We were camping the ruins, pulling from the "horn" and all the surrounding 4-armed we could get steady for about 3 hours in ME. Good luck picking one up!
RE: RARE?????
# May 25 2003 at 11:43 PM Rating: Decent

Well, lucky you. Had a group camping ME/AR zoneline for 6 hours killed about 50 Xin Thalls and only ONE Axgoreth belt dropped. Luckily I won the roll :) Nice belt.

Got both the Stone Idol and this belt to drop off of a Xin Thall Centien at the Akheva Ruins zone. Me and the necro I was with both nearly wet ourselves. Necro had an idol, so I looted it. Belt went to someone the necro knew since neither of us could use it. Rarest of rare drops to get both on one mob.
got it finally

Because by the time you are 55, melee should have their skills maxed or very close to it.

I've seen this belt drop 3 or 4 times a night. I've camped the AR zone with little luck. The ruins straight out from the ME/DSP was excellent though. We camped on the wall there and pulled the whole place, I have one in the bank just because I didn't want it to rot.
Patience...

I stayed in ME for about 2 weeks, and camped 4arms 3 different times in hopes that this elusive belt would drop. The first time we camped at Ahkeva, 2 belts dropped...but they were only half as nice as the Axgoreth Belt, and NO DROP as well. Finally, 3rd time was the charm. One belt dropped on final 4arm pull and I had to roll against a Feline BL...and won the roll! 96 out of /ran 100, the BL got a formidable 67.

Dangerous area with all the trains plowing through constantly, several times half our group got wiped because of the carelessness of someone running their train right through our camp.

This belt also dropped off the first centien kill March 2 2004. I originally looking for gems of the void for my epic. I was grouped with a good friend who was 2-boxing a cleric and a chanter, both 65. The belt dropped of the 4-arm by the UP zone and being the good guy i was i saw 15 wis and told the cleric to loot. Currently a beastlord with 10 less wis and str:(

I went to ME to hunt the 4 armed ladies 6 times for periods of a few hours each before this belt dropped (which it did about a week ago). Mine came from the lady at the entrance to the tunnel to UP. I also hunted the entrance to AR, where a buddy of mine said his group got a couple in a short period of time, but no dice. Both locations have as part of their charm a lot of trains coming through constantly, so you need your head on a swivel while doing this.
Still dropping
# Jan 04 2003 at 11:27 PM Rating: Decent
Well, we got very lucky today. Had two drop. One dropped, our BL got it. 2 Centiens later another dropped. Didn't have anyone else who could use it so we shouted to the zone. Haven't seen any before or since.

PanilHoH,

Could you let us know where in ME you were hunting when you got 2 to drop in 2.5 hrs.?

I have been hunting there for 2 nights now for a total of about 8 hrs. and haven't seen 1 drop.

I have been hunting at the AR zoneline and occasionally at the UP zoneline. Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you.

Dear Kirath

Scroll down a bit hon to read a little post on how to hunt for this item. To specifically address your question, yes it still drops as of last weekend on a pretty frequent basis. Again, I would urge you to hunt the ME-AkRuins or the ME-UP zone lines on the ME sides, and pull the 4 arms. Please note there have been significant changes to Harmony pulling and the ME-UP zone line is a td more difficult to break nowadays.
Rare?
# Oct 31 2002 at 7:57 AM Rating: Decent
Not sure how rare this belt really is. We got two to drop last night in 2.5 hours.

With stats like that I was sad to see that Shaman can't use it. Does anyone know of a similar drop?

Just a few notes on this item
# Oct 16 2002 at 5:39 AM Rating: Excellent
Yes dear it is still dropping. Perhaps your best chance at such a drop is to go to the ME side of the AK ruins zone in. There is generally a group located there, as it is generally the easiest place to camp the Battlemaster spawn for those "uber folks" who desire their lucid shard from this zone.

The camp offers a nice diveristy of mobs to pull while waiting for the BM to spawn about every 26 minutes or so (or sadly, more often than not, his place holder the scout). the diveristy is nice because it breaks up the mind numbing monotony of some of the other camps in the zone. There are 5 toilers, 3 4arm chaps, a couple of the robes (Xi Vius cleric or SK version), the 2 goroanga scouts and various trash that the average level 60 group will pull to pass the time and get some AA while working this camp.

This particular item tends to drop off the higher, level 57 version, of the 4 -arm chaps. Due to the diverity of groupings these days there is no perfect group for pulling these mobs at this camp -- Have seen 4 rangers druid and a chanter do it, or a standard MA Cleric slow and others. Most of the groups at this camp tend to have items that are superior than this belt, and would happily annouce it to the zone, except that the potential for people to train this camp is very high -- be it a quad gone bad or the local guild raiding Va'Dyn or IV et al .. They do not want to increase the chance for trainage, so they would rather let the item rot than to have 4 "noobs" training their camp in a mad dash to loot item X. Lost time at camp dealing with unexpected adds is lost exp.

So the aspiring young ranger (using myself at level 53 so many months ago ... )can go to this spot and ask to assist. Forage food for the fat ogre, heal the chanter, snare running mobs if they lack a snare class., etc. Ask the group ahead of time if said item were to drop, mioght you have the opportunity to loot it as it is an improvement over your (insert FBSS, Spiderfur, Strawspun belt etc ...) If they have an opening in the group, they may, for whatever reason., ask you to join. Be polite, Smile, and help as much as you can. Most people can remember back when they were 53 and recognize what a wonderful item that this is for you.
