a pally friend 62 gave it to my rogue 37 the other day and since then I must say i'm not complaining :>)

Every mob in the zone is level 53 or higher. If any mob is level 56 or higher, they will summon if you do any type of damage to them. Disturbed Elysian remains are the only mob in this zone that does not summon. None of them are ever level 56. Only 1 Elysian in there that can summon. He ranges from 56 to 58. His name is Corrupted Elder Elysian. Hope this information helps you.

I would say that about 95% of the mob in this zone summon.. I have hunted about every type of mob here.. Cept for the Elysian's.. But I know that, I use my pally to pull.. Then slow/cripple with the shammy.. Soon as I slow it.. My Shammy get's summoned... Just been pokin through all these post's.. And I continuely see "This mob summon's, or does this mob summon".. So, I would say that.. Yes, everything in this zone summons.. =b

Nice upgrade

Got one last night on my guilds raid (Nice job Dark Brigade !!). It dropped in front of the Neth caves to the left of zone entrance dont recall the Mob's name - Neth Fiend- I think was a easy kill - but then alots a easy kill with 30 trained professionals-

Great upgrade to Barbed Ringmail, only problem is im a fashion nightmare -- green boots & arms -- brown helm & shoulders and this a blue chain mail vest Yuck !

Good Hunting

C'mon now 5k? you have to be joking if this only sold for around 5k everyone and their grandmother would be wearing one especially without a recommended level. Anyone know what these Really go for on Zeb?

# Jun 30 2002 at 11:17 PM Rating: Default
i think its common knowledge that there are fibbers that post item prices. (1500 pp?, gimme a break >=/ )
the Shissar Scale BP sells most commonly for about 8k+ on the luclin server, so i would guess this sells for either the same or better (15-20k+?).
I want to make a note that i spend alot of time on the chat auction channel and i have yet to see one of these for sale on Luclin server, but i wasn't really looking for this either
#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 03 2002 at 2:12 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) /agree. In general these do sell fer the price that is named on site. No joke. But truth being this is a SUPER rare bp. and thes stats /ac makes this thing something most don't want to give up until they are completed with higher lvl quests fer better bp's or high end guild raids. So its a hard call. I would guess the price on this to be no lower than 8k but nothing highr than 20k. At 20k u can start puting that toward buying MQ armor on our server. And the gems are super cheap to buy anyways fer some flawed emeralds pc's to me have been coming back at 300pp so fer 900pp+10k i can buy the MQ quest on the velious armor. (ac24 +4str +5dex svcr+2 hp+25) But this is very nice fer the class because no matter who is wearing it benefits them greatly

This dropped off a netherbien hive fiend, was RTM at 54 and blue to my buddy at 60. Lots of hps but was slowable and hit in the 190's. Shows up as a dark bluishpurple chain mail on luclin half elf models. I guestimated it about level 57 mob, just take care when pulling, lots of agroey stuff out there. I got it because all the tanks had better BPs than me ehehe. Thanks to Evren, Waldoarf, Sraiza, Grevvy, and Ticho. Hope this helps a bit. Good Luck

I was in zone with a small group from my guild (all level 60). This came off one of the normal named spawns in zone. we were to the left of the entrance.

I gave it to my Rogue, Not only decent ac and stats *she is level 45* but she is really cute in dark blue !

Here's where we went...
# Mar 17 2002 at 11:35 AM Rating: Decent
We took a raid in there this past Friday night, went left from the entrance, followed the zone wall and pulled Moktors, Fallen soldiers and their ilk, the funky-looking tan-colored aliens, assassin mobs, went into both the tunnels and cleaned those out....Hmm...killed lots of elysian remains and a couple triggered named mobs in the tunnels. Anyhow, by the end of the evening, we ended up with a lot of droppable loot to pass out, including two of these nice chestpieces. SKs both ended up with them - was an upgrade to their planar BPs. Sorry I can't give more specific info on the mobs that dropped these, but we were moving and killing pretty quick, so it was unclear as to exactly what dropped them. Hope this helps, though.

I'm going to go out on a limb and *assume* this is from Rumblecrush, along with the other non-armor set BPs dropping in zone. However, the fact that it lacks the NO DROP tag does make me question that...

Can anyone confirm this item's drop location? I'd much rather see it on one of the very rare spawns (like the Elysian Elder or the Doomshade) than Rumblecrush, but my hopes aren't high.

Who should roll on this?
# Feb 21 2002 at 3:38 PM Rating: Default
Everyone who can use this should be rolling on it period. This is great for all the people who can use it, simple as that. The only people who should roll on it are people who can't use it. I would be very angry to lose this to a pure caster, as it beats the living hell outta my current tunic and a good deal of other tunics availible to me.

Though to be honest this should be no drop, this is too nice to be droppable for twinking.
#Zaztik, Posted: Feb 21 2002 at 2:59 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Nice replacement for my Barbed Ringmail, no?
# Feb 21 2002 at 2:23 PM Rating: Decent
Yes, this will most likely turn into a massive fight over classes, and I can see it brewing already, so I might as well toss few matches...

If you are in a pick up group, chances are, everyone is going to want to roll on this item, simply because it has rather good stats for any class that doesn't have their velious quest armors or better yet. This does suck, especially for those that could really use it.

Trust me, nothing hurts more than seeing a weapon/item that you could use go to someone who is just going to sell it off for a profit, but that is the way the game goes.

Need before greed is a wonderful concept, but it never works, for the simple reason that it is not fair to those that already have better. They put in the same amount of work as you did in the group, they are going to want the chance at what has been found as well.

Nothing irks me more than a caster who complains about not getting to roll on tank loot, but then expects a dropped spell that the can use to go to them. Just keep that in mind when you are with a pick up group, what comes around, goes around.

Its true NBG doesn't work out well. But its because the people who have better don't realize its VERY fair for something to go to only the people who can use it. The effort they are putting in is for a pretty much uncontested grab at what they need. Its short sighted to complain on a single drop, as the point of grouping is to get many different drops and exp. So what if they can't roll on this because they can't use it? They got exp from the kill, and more then likely they themselves will have something drop that only they can use and they don't have to worry that someone will take it even though they can't use it.

Therefore, the only failing in NBG is the people.

RE: Classes
# Mar 05 2002 at 4:14 PM Rating: Good
I'm not sure why people always say NBG would be nice but doesn't work. Almost all of my grps are NBG. As long as everyone knows up front there isn't an issue with it.
I never have problems getting a gpr that wants to do NBG. It is nice to know when a specific item drops for your class, that you don't have to roll against another person in your grp that is only going to sell it.
Most mobs have a table of items they can drop, and it is ussually mixed (not all just for one class). Along with this most grps are hunting in a region & not one specific mob, so there is a somewhat equal chance that an item for ther class will drop.

NBG only works for nodrop or one guild groups.

Anything else is profoundly unjust.

Which is why NBG doesn't fly in pickup groups.

RE: Classes
# May 22 2002 at 1:57 PM Rating: Decent
Bah I too have always proposed and agreed on nbg in pick up groups. It has not caused fights, has worked both for and against me at times but has always left me knowing that the right thing was done.

If NBG does not work on your server guys changes servers. No better still stay where you are and leave the decent folk to play in the warm and friendly environment we enjoy.

my 2cp worth.

very much truth in what you say..easiest way around this via pickup group or not is to first off whole group decide beforehand if group is need or greed in the beginning..if join a pickup group..find out soon as join by it need or greed group..once you have your answer then there is no reason anyone can complain..nod..

Easiest way for a NBG group to work is do a GUILD only raid to here and get the items it seems
RE: Classes
# May 04 2002 at 10:52 AM Rating: Default
I would agree
I have been in many supposed nbg groups.
I lost count of how many weapons have droped in no guild groups that sell for 3k or more and people claim ngb Only to see the winner selling the same item in ec the next day.
nbg seem to just elimate other players to allow other a better chance of profit.
The only time i seen it work is on guild raids. If your just in a pickup group, nbg will not work, just a nice concept.
# Feb 21 2002 at 1:39 PM Rating: Decent
well actually this breastplate has a much better home that hasnt been mentioned ...

The very rare Erudite Shadownight .. . the low weight of this bp plus its high str and other stats make this great, If i see one for sale, I'll beg borrow and steal to get it.

started mine the morning paineel opened, 2 years and a few days ago. I've only seen one other female erudite sk on quellious, at least since those early days when the option first became available and everyone tried one out until they werent able to figure out how to leave the city.

sure we have little strength, but we can cast cast cast!
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 21 2002 at 11:19 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ok here goes...only 5 classes of the listed should really be looking at this and only 2 of them have a limited reason..first 3 being rogue,bard,or ranger..last classes to be looking at it are the iksar shadowknight or warrior playing 2 of these 5 classes i know this makes alot of sense due to the stats given..i also firmly believe that if you have a warrior or sk iksar grouped with ya and they have a real need for it they should have priority due to the armor restrictions placed on them<<iksar cannot wear plate armor>> but in all fairness other than the 5 listed here this would be a useless item for anyone else other than greed

# Feb 21 2002 at 1:44 PM Rating: Default
Ya, shamans and clerics could definately use this bp, with the ac it should keep them alive longer to keep you alive.....but you're right about the other classes. I sure as hell would want one on my ranger :)

RE: only 5 usable classes
# Feb 21 2002 at 1:26 PM Rating: Good
Um don't forget Clerics either. Not all of us are uber twinked out. Hell I am lvl 52 and am wearing a Mithril BP. Why? Well because with the additional agi it takes me over the 75 mark and the BP nets me about a total of 60ac. Huge diff in having a 74 agi and 75. I hate all this it should only go to this class even if it lists others. If you can use it and it is an upgrade to what you have you have every right to have a chance at it. Hell even if you can't use it you can sell/trade it for something you can. I think NBG is a bunch of crap. For example if I won it. It would replace my Mithril BP which I could then turn around and sell (I know its not worth that much). But the point being not only are you getting an upgrade that will be worth a good deal of money but you also are most likely gonna make money off of what it is replacing. The only time there should b an exclusive roll is on the no drops IMO. Yes I know this is not a popular line of thought so flame away if you feel you must.

Hey Kitkoran,
You're full of Crap. I'm a level 51 Shaman and this is better than what I'm using. If it drops, i'm rolling and because it's better.

Please think before talking.

# May 22 2002 at 7:45 AM Rating: Default
Good point. If this thing drops and it's an improvement for anyone that can use it (i.e. NEEDS it), then they get to roll. You're never gonna be in a group that takes the time to determine need... and THEN wastes 20 minutes debating the degree of the specific need for each person. If you need it, then you roll. If you lose the roll, then tough cookies... you lost a roll. Next!

By the way, this thing is totally a rogue item! :P

RE: only 5 usable classes
# Feb 22 2002 at 1:09 PM Rating: Default
why dont ya think before flaming..maybe yes a good bp for a shaman but then again shamans usually get better than most other classes as per previous post with fungi tunic and like to see a bard or ranger get a fungi in a group with a shammy..most likey they wont because shammie cry about thier mana and regen also in previous post before yours..they stated they would get this and sell other wich is normal but they HAD to mention a value on it meaning this is greed not need..there are alot of great pieces for anyone out there and what i stated was just opinion not fact so lets not be as rude as ya were in your posting when someone states thier opinion
RE: only 5 usable classes

Definatly a nice shm Bp for any shaman that doesn't have a fungi, beats the crap out of the froglok scale bp alot of shm's wear who don't have access to a regen bp.

All of this seriously high end stuff comming out of a zone that "is" if your good, huntable by a single group.
