Item Find Thread (11/26/04)

With some an incredible find - I had to draw attention away from Doug's Zod cuz I want some credit for this one, so here's a new thread and my little tale:

I think Christmas came early this year... I was doing Anya shopping for trap claws and jewelers armor of the whale (for my 30 res all/60 ias armor) over about 10 hours (over a few days) and I couldn't believe my eyes when my cursor fell over this:

before:

http://upl.silentwhisper.net/uplfolders/upload5/Armor2.jpg

after:

http://upl.silentwhisper.net/uplfolders/upload5/Armor3.jpg

I am sooo unworthy! I spent several seconds just staring at the thing with my mouth open before I actually left-clicked and saved&exited as fast as I could (had to get those screenshots tho). I was expecting to end up loving some jeweler's ancient armor of the whale (cuz it looks cool) but man, I'll take this instead! My zon and throwbarb are both gonna :drool: all over this baby.

Can't wait to get that last jewel tho.. anyone have a 30%FR/IAS jewel so I can finish this puppy off? mwuahahahah! I'll even give em two items off my High TC Elite list in my trade thread for it... can't wait to try out this armor at full power!

By the way, does anyone know the probability of finding armor like this in the shop screen? I would assume is astronomically low - almost as low as finding Tyreal's?

My strafe/freezing arrow bowazon, throw barb and hunter are all gonna share it (the hunter will only wear it until I get my hands on 2 ED/ias jewels, but that'll be a while since they're low priority). I'll post up some stats when I finally complete the armor - its the last piece of equipment to finalize the first to builds. I was gonna make some 60 res all/ 60 ias armor, but then I remembered I'm SP and don't have the luxury of duped jewels.. lol. Oh, and the zon looks badass in the armor, so here's a few action shots:

After reading about Vajars armor I went to anya and do some shopping myself and after a while I got an alright armor IMO. Sure not an Archon Plate but hey can't get everything:

Artisan's Light Plate of the Whale

Will check her out some more actually rather often she have armors of the whale now the problem is that the prefix Jeweler isn't all that common.

Vajar what was the level of your character that shopped the armor not sure if my level 92 sorc is enough because when you reach level 94 you are abel to shop all kind of items IIRC.

Good Luck with your finds all

was doing it with my trapsin (burst of speed) who was lvl 90, I removed a bunch of equipment to drop her strength below that of archon plate so I could spot it by the redness from not being able to equip it - although I definately wasn't planning one finding one! On battle.net when I was poor, I used to shop at Anya for such items the same way and would spend many hours doing it to afford good gear, though the best I ever got was jewelers ornate plate of the whale w/+98 life - useful for BvB in 1.09. I did find plenty of ancient armors of the whale tho, and was expectin to find one of those.

And to stay on topic here: I finally decided to go after a ruby and cube up my Guls to make this baby (look at the rolls on it - my luck this weekend definately didn't die with finding that armor):
