I went down there to get Fungi Tunic. Brother told me this bad boy dropped of the shrooms, so I started killing them as I waiting for king. In about 5 hours I had 5 of these things. They may be ultra rare, but I am ultra lucky.

After reading a few of the other posts I figured I would be down there for a long time, I am not sure how long the time spent farming was, but I managed to get it after killing everything down there, waiting for respawn, then killing everything again. I went AFK to find something to eat, then ate it, while waiting for respawn, when I got back everything had respawned not sure which mob it dropped off of because I was just pulling a bunch then mowing them down. It dropped before I finished the entire area, kept going just cause I had already started. 66 Warrior with all the auto granted AA at the time of farming.
Bought one today in bazaar on Cazic for 10K

Went down the hole and camped the mobs for several hours, and I could see this was going to be an all-day-sucker. Probably best if you have a char that would get exp down there, then gain the exp or AA's and hope for luck. Otherwise, it could be a looooong hung. Hated to pay 10K, but I think that was probably a pretty fair price.

I would say this item is very rare to ultra rare. Been camping the Fungi tunic for 7 days now and have gotten 8 fungi tunics and finially just got a Cobalt bracer today on the 7th day after killing over a thousand Myconids.

Dropped off a reaver for me about a week ago. I was actually on my way to camp the froglok reets for the crown and had to kill some of the shrooms because they saw through invis. It was a very nice surprise. The reaver was wandering around the hall closest to the jail area with the frogs.
Just Dropped

have to wear it to click it. just drop'd off the shrooms that path around the king camp.
Rare as hell.
# Apr 15 2006 at 4:23 AM Rating: Decent
Killed about 400+ Myconid so far and have yet to see one,can you say rare?!=0
Where did you find yours?
# Mar 13 2006 at 9:40 AM Rating: Good
Been camping this is the Fungi-kings room for maybe 30 hours, non-stop killing everthing around that area, still nothing ( reminds me of camping druid arms in KC, except now I can kill 4-5 at a time ) is this that rare of a drop or is there a spot where more peeps have gotten theirs?

BtW the crap robes from the king dont even have good Trib value ( 120 I think ) and Ive seen ALOT of em :P, just wish the flowers dropped by the froggies up top dropped here too, be more worthwhile.

On the plus side at 70 I still see some light/dark blues down there so its not such a bad camp ( I just hate killin greenies that have 200 HP less then dk blues )

Safe hunts and rare drops to you!

only warrior can click.
You can, however, pick up a wand of imperceptibility from the deep, or an anizok's minimizing device from bazaar.

This also drops off a myconid adept.
From Inventory?
# Oct 10 2004 at 3:33 PM Rating: Decent
Is this usable from inventory, or do you have to equip it?
It is worth allot to have
# Jun 16 2004 at 6:56 PM Rating: Default
Ill try and make this simple. This item is invaluable as are the greaves. When your GL says get to such and such zone in 10mins SSRA for example well I prefer running through Fungus and pull out my greaves if a druid is not available for a TL so Im thinking 200p for a invis potion that adds up VERY fast.

Bracer is the same thing, it is mandatory to shrink on raids for several reasons lag one and the fact you have 50-70 people lots of big classes hell our enchanter makes half the people gnomes just to help out. BTW it is mandatory in our guild to have a shrink device/potion and invis device/potion.

My point is unlimited charges vs BUYING a device that requires recharging or buying potions. The money adds up extremely fast even though it doesnt seem like it. People complaining about the stats need to realize that this armor wasnt intended to be worn, its intended to go into your bag and pulled and for the click effect period, hence lvl 45 just to use at at lvl 45 you will have better or something is extremely wrong. You will see TIME equipped warriors carriying cobalt for these effects so please dont knock em, if you want to make your Warrior the best possible these are essential items to have and not to mention the time reduction from asking someone to come get you or switch grp to shrink you cause you ran out of potions. Imagine on a raid with 72 people and half are asking this what a cluster.... it would cause. Just my opinion. BTW I do realize the date on the some of the posts so half on the people that posted realize this now.

or u can just buy a coupple of the 9pp insta cast invis pots. they can wear off in ne amount of time, but they give u warning and by then u can reclick another with out invis dropping
RE: It is worth allot to have
# Nov 02 2005 at 2:17 PM Rating: Decent
This item was designed to be worn, 9 expansions ago. Anyone who played back then will tell you... now its just a rightclick shrink for warriors and twinks
RE: It is worth allot to have
# Sep 28 2004 at 11:00 AM Rating: Decent
It is a good item to have indeed. There are other items as well that have similar effect. One of my prized possessions is the Incarnadine BP I got doing the King in Chardok for a former guildy's cleric.. Clicky Invis for classes that can't do it themselves is priceless :-)

With the placement of the shrinking device, the shrink on this bracer is not as unique. Before it was not simple to find shamen selling the shrink potions, but with the device in a bag you can have a rechargeable 20shot shrink anytime.

I would say that will make the price on this item drop a bit... but a 20ac bracer is nothing to give away for pennies...

#REDACTED, Posted: May 15 2004 at 10:47 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) It's infinite, there is no lowering in price. Just like gnomish vanishing device doesn't do a thing to the price of cobalt greaves. Trust me this is one of the best things in the game just like most kunark items...
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 10 2002 at 6:41 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You were right, it is 20ac. I for some reason got my gloves mixed up AC wise. Anyhow, I traded the one I had for Blood Runed Greeves. Think it was a fair trade though since I had better bracers on. Was wearing Worked Dragonleg breeches for so long.

i dont know about any of the other servers but on bristlebane the cobalt bracer is still AC20
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 01 2002 at 9:08 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) After the modifications they made to certain armor, this item now has 25ac not 20ac as what it used to be. I am selling mine on Emarr if interested send tell to Stacy
AC is still 20

These suckers are priceless, especially after verant's latest nerf that makes shrink usable in every zone. First good thing verant has done in, oh, a year(ish).

Is it really a nerf if they improve something or grant a permission that people have been begging for?

And the bazaar is a big good thing.
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 03 2002 at 4:47 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Course its a nerf lol, a nerf is any change in an item or ability after the item (or ability or spell) is released. This is definately a nerf, just a positive one. and the bazaar is not positive imo, in fact all it has really seemed to do is give people the impression that they can shamelessly overcharge on any item they want, figuring that SOME sucker will eventually come along and pay it. Yeah, thats cool.
RE: woohoo
# Nov 09 2002 at 6:33 PM Rating: Default
Umm, its your stuff. You can sell it for whatever you want too. No one makes you buy it. As for what silks and hides used to sell for to the poster below, items made from trades are more valuable than they used to be therefor the items that people farm for others are going to get more expensive...called supple/demand.

RE: woohoo
# Nov 04 2002 at 2:57 PM Rating: Default
a nerf has always been a negative change to an item/zone/quest/class .

i geuss like any other word people are using it for different purposes now examples.. bad used to mean bad but now means good and *** used to mean a cigarette but now means a homosxual etc...

im not positive but if i remeber right the word NERF comes from toy manufacturer and the reference is to the nerf bats they make
RE: woohoo
# Jan 05 2003 at 9:59 PM Rating: Default
i always figured it was in reference to the fluff toys from the manufacturer as well. something has been turned into one of those fluff toys from something that was useful = nerfed
RE: woohoo
# Nov 03 2002 at 5:00 PM Rating: Default
Agree. Like the idiots trying to sell vendor spells for 1k.
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 04 2002 at 2:48 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Or people trying to selling basic tailoring ingredients (like spider(ling) silk for 10pp, low quality animal pelts for 15pp, and medium and high quality pelts for 20pp. Back in my day we sold the silks 1pp per and the swatches 2pp per.
I dont think so!

Uhm no. Shamans can cast shrink anywhere. Ive been shrunk in Cazic-Thule many times unless they nerfed it.

CT is considered a dungeon, even if its an outdoor zone. Thats why you can can sow and shrink in it. Try going to WC and cast shrink there - thats a nogo!

EDIT: Although it possible now, after VI's latest nerf on shrink. :)

I have been Shrunk in the middle of the Dread Lands, pretty sure thats not considered a Dungeon zone.
Shrink = uber
# Apr 03 2002 at 9:47 AM Rating: Decent
Troll Warr - Im also a troll warrior - 57 and been to many raids and the shrink effect is invaluable simply because A) Ppl hate to see big races taking up space B)Much easier for the other 20+ ppl attacking a mob to fit around you and C) easier just to shirnk yourself instead of hounding your local shammy or buying shrink potions. The AC is great but the shrink effect is extremely valuable since you can also shrink OTHERS as well! Also the shrooms in OS is probably the hardest camp. thats why the amount of cobalt bracers arent that large. you need a group of at least 55 to hold it properly
# Mar 24 2002 at 3:34 PM Rating: Decent
I play a troll warrior... Yes this bracer is ultra great because of the AC.... The effect is a trigger not a proc... Anyways 25AC on a bracer is great. I agree on both Sides of the coin... 1)The shrink effect on this bracer blows because of the fact of the high level to get it.... the fact that Human, Halflings, Gnomes, Half elfs, woodelfs, blah blah.. can be warriors.. and don't need shrink.. the effect should be different.. on the other side of the coin 2) Being a Troll I want this bracer even if it doesn't have any stats but shrink... Hey Verant... Happy Love Bracer... Throw shrink on that thing.. and while your at it.. Cobalt Guants and Boots... Why have to effects to cancel each other out?? how bout like summon bandages on the guants or something useful.. :) welp there ya go.. The view from an ultra-fat warrior on the shrink item.
# Apr 25 2002 at 3:41 PM Rating: Decent
I agree on the gloves/boots thing I have the boots+champ gloves tho so nnot that much of a big deal. With the shrink effect they should make it stay shrink but also add some kind of bonus to it like say 10+dex with the effect or maybe some stats instead 20+ AC by itself isnt that impressive , but when you add a few stats its pretty nice. Much easier to get 1 champ's or a BoB I have a champ's bracer atm w/ the fine steel GM halloween one on my other wrist. Cobalt bracers are 12k+ on bertox so I don't expect to see one till 55+ lvl 51 atm so I have quite a ways to go.
Just my 2cp
