View Full Version : Best Breastplates!
04-30-2003, 11:51 AM
I am still in a Breatplate of Eradication (got it a few months after Velious came out so it has been on me a while) and am wanting to know what people's opinions are for best BP upgrades! I know Raex BP hasn't dropped anywhere yet, so don't include it! My guild has the ability to grab any other kind...
04-30-2003, 12:01 PM
Heavy Yttrium - seru (sanctus seru)
Great shadow platemail - Aten Ha Ra (vex thall)
Breastplate of the void - cursed (ssra)
Kizrak's chestplate of battle - tier 3 mini bosses (quested)
there may be more but thats what comes to mind.
04-30-2003, 12:42 PM
Bah -- I can get lists. I want recommendations.... I want you to say THIS is the BP you should get!
04-30-2003, 12:46 PM
Get a bronze breastplate.
Then post the screenshots of you tanking the new Blazzaxx with it, aggressive.
04-30-2003, 12:49 PM
Well, im using ornate atm, however i would take any of those 3 very happily. none are exactly common drops, so i would probably take the first one that drops. I really don't think there is much difference but i think my choice if i could pick one would be the heavy yttrium.
04-30-2003, 12:51 PM
Of the BP's available either HYBP or GSP.
I personally took the GSP, but had a HYBP dropped before the GSP I would have asked for it.
This was before PoP and all the "Aura of _______" effects on Raex.
IMO, it's a push between them. Maybe a slight edge to HYBP (only due to all the +ATK items that are out now), but not enough to pass on GSP.

you can throw a tattered cloth tunic on Azlana and i'll guar-an-damn-tee you it's the best damn Breastplate you'll ever see.

You should get Raex~ :D
Breastplate of Speed rules. 125 HP/haste/ATK = hard to beat.
Great Shadow Platemail, Heavy Yttrium Breastplate, and Kizrak's are also nice, basically it comes down to personal preference and which one you want more (and can feasibly loot).
04-30-2003, 02:05 PM
Bets bets are Seru or Kizraks. I personally still use (and love) my Vindi for its resists. But I'm in a position where saving rpp = good.
04-30-2003, 04:08 PM
Get any of the first 3 and your set for a looooooooong time.
(BP of speed = the best imo)
04-30-2003, 04:20 PM
BP of Speed
in that order in my opinion.
04-30-2003, 04:57 PM
Sound like a broken record but I agree that the top 3 are BP of Speed, Yttrium BP, and Shadow BP.
With Yttrium at the top ;) but that's just me.
04-30-2003, 06:10 PM
Seru has been rare from what I have seen, Love the saves though.
GSP again rare, but 50 ATK + 80 is damm tough to beat.
BP Speed 30 atk, 40% haste, no saves, but IMO when you can kill 2 birds (Haste + a solid BP) thats the way to go, with PoP AA saves are less of a issue. Haste allows you more choices in other slots.
BP Speed IMO.
yeah I wear one too.
04-30-2003, 11:29 PM
My top 3 are
1) Great Shadow Platemail (more AC and nice ATK)
2) Heavy Yttrium (regen + atk and nice AC)
3) BP of Speed (haste and atk)
I took the Heavy Yttrium cause well my former guild wasnt in VT, but we had 4 or 5 Seru BPs drop before i decided to go for it.
05-01-2003, 01:05 AM
I got an Aten bp and i'm very satisfied with it. I personally wanted it more than those other bp's cuz it has superior atk, ac, and it raised the 2 resists that I needed more of (fire and cold)
But it all basically comes down to preference and what stats you want to raise the most.
05-01-2003, 03:08 AM
Personally I'm going for Heavy Yttrium, although I keep eyeing the Breastplates of the Void that seem to be semi common.
05-01-2003, 08:07 AM
we are 2 out of 3 on bp of speed. no aten bp. not killing seru. seen 2 void bps in 8 or so kills.
BP of speed is best and seems most common so far. ive passed on it with 40% haste in another slot though. just a waist imo to take from someone without unless everyone is already got haste.
otherwise i would take the first one that drops, none of them are that common like vindi bp. aten loot table for instance is huge, just not something you can count on.
05-01-2003, 08:50 AM
Out of about 8 - 10 clearings of VT (i loose count) I've seen 0 BP of speed and 1 GSP
out of about 20-ish Seru kills (i loose count again ><) I've seen about 6 BP's with 2 Double BP drops hehe
So my best reccommendation is just take what you can get. I personally went with Yttrium because Aten BP never drops and niether did bp of speed.
05-01-2003, 09:46 AM
Curious: if you can get the Great shadow BP, or the Seru Bp why is the Raex BP not an option?
Have not got to the tier 4 planes yet?
If the 3 BP's listed ( Yttrium, BP of the Void or Great Shadow )are the current choice and you can get anyone of them I choose:
More Saves=better resists
most raw HP's
Best effect for a warrior in 4 Hp per tick regen + attk bonus

I have heard plate BP mold only drops in Plane of Time. That makes it not an option. I am flagged for all other planes.
05-01-2003, 11:21 AM
Plane of Time isnt open to any guild on any server as of yet. But if you were to scan the Magelo Profiles of Warriors belonging to Fires Of Heaven ( as an example ) you will see that almost every one of them has a Raex BP.
BP drop off Tier 4 bosses/named and I have also heard they can randomly drop off any tier 4 mob.

Okay -- but I still need a BP between my Eradication and the time that I actually get a Raex. My guild is just now fully elemental in the last couple weeks...
05-01-2003, 11:32 AM
We don't do VT anymore and I was still using eradication bp... I camped that miniboss in plane of tactics for a week and eventually won the random (single xp group encounter) for my Ornate BP.
It will fill in the niche until Time I guess. Though I'd kill for a Seru BP.
05-01-2003, 11:32 AM
What about this BP that drops in ST?
Clawed Coat of Tyro
MAGIC ITEM LORE ITEM NO DROP
STR: +15 DEX: +15 AGI: +10 HP: +100
SV FIRE: +12 SV DISEASE: +12 SV COLD: +12 SV MAGIC: +12
SV POISON: +12
Recommended level of 55.
Effect: Haste (Worn)
No Sta but most warriors sta is beyond maxed by this time anyway. I have never seen one drop but I think it can drop from one of the ancients. I have seen the Monk / Bst haste 100hp bp drop 2 times though.
05-01-2003, 11:51 AM

Look here to see FoH magelos... (http://www.eqrankings.com/?rm=counter&class=&server=)
Not one war/sk/pal has an elemental breastplate. That is because Hulanta was correct: the molds don't drop off mobs being killed right now.

Umm, no. No elemental BP has dropped anywhere on any server. As a matter of fact, the plate god drop BP still has not dropped. Currently Fennin Ro drops a leather BP, Xegony drops silk BP, Coirnav drops chain, and it would stand to reason the Rathe will drop plate.
At any rate, most of our warriors are wearing Yttrium or GSP.
05-01-2003, 01:35 PM
Flame Deleted. I apologise
05-01-2003, 01:56 PM
Thanks for making it personal.
Let's cut to the chase right now.
yes I was wrong. Scanning magelos is something I do and while I saw plenty of raex pieces in all the other slots I saw none in the chest slot after someone mentioned I was wrong.
Let me say it again..I was wrong.
Calling me clueless isnt to nice though. This isnt Flame central.
Mind keeping it civil?
By the way EmiliaEQ, take the time to answer the original posters question would ya? i would love to hear what you think on the subject since you know it all.

I have answered.
05-01-2003, 09:50 PM
Korinn, that BP drops off one of the warders (ancients) in the new ST. I forget which one it is though.
As for the GSP rarity. Seems pretty damn common for my guild =x We've killed Aten about 10 times now. 5 bp's. We have the most of any guild on our server (the top guild has none, and another guild has 2)
05-01-2003, 10:53 PM
out of about 20-ish Seru kills (i loose count again >< ) I've seen about 6 BP's with 2 Double BP drops hehe
Lucky bastards=P 35ish kills. 5 BP's. But hey, everyone and their dog has a bow and that's important cuz good bows are so rare right? RIGHT!? *sob*
05-01-2003, 11:02 PM
hehe, i think we've only had 2 seru bows :cool: and 0 mantles !#@#$%
05-01-2003, 11:10 PM
Where may I find this tactics mini that dropped your ornate bp?
05-02-2003, 02:26 AM
named troll, if u drop into the pit and go right, hes all the way in the back.
05-02-2003, 05:35 AM
7 or so seru kills(we just started) zero bows, about 4 or 5 BP's, 3 rings, 3 boots, 4 arms, no bridle, 3 mantles
