    Hi all,
    Just a FYI about all the epiphany armor pieces (human/gargoyle)(good/bad)
    Drops from Niporailem The Thief.
    It drops a random piece epiphany armor each time you kill him.
    Drop rate is 100%, so it is NOT rare anymore.
    Reason for me to post this is people are selling on vendors as Non-spawning rare armor pieces, which they are not!
    I thought it was a bug but found out later from messana that it is infact an easter egg from PUB 71.
    So if you didnt complete your sets, dont get ripped off, just visit the Tomb Of Kings and kill Niporailem. :)

    Lovely... Glad I spent all that time working my tail off to get all that.

    They should add the Conjurers Trinket, Conjurers Book and the Conjurers robe to that too so everyone can have access to those too... and they won't be unobtainable anymore either.

    And then while they are at it... they need to add a spawn of Dread Warhorses to the game too...

    This way no one will have to be without things that vets have.

    The Epiphany stuff, while it may make sense to have it continue to spawn, I would argue shouldn't drop 100% of the time.

    Those items Malag mentioned would surely be neat to have as rare drops on the thief.

    And/or.......Wouldn't it be kind of neat to have a place in the game, like a Hall of Ghosts, that spawned items and monsters that are non-shard specific and non-EM related, that don't spawn anymore?

    In my head it's random week to week. But that's probably not doable.

    Epiphany armour isn't exactly for veterans only, being a fairly recent addition to the game. I didn't have time myself to fight Blackrock Golems during the event, and I doubt I'll have time to farm Niporailem to complete my sets, but its nice that we at least have the opportunity now.

    :eek:

    Cat's outta the bag. :sad:

    I have been hunting this guy for over a week steadily and had nobody else show up. Also on occasion he also drops more than one piece, my best haul was three pieces off one kill. Not to mention one Blade of Batte - unsure if anything else drops. I missed the Magincia deal and was unable to snag the suits, figured it was a glitch left in game that this guy even drops them. Hopefully he keeps dropping them until I get all the suits :D

    I wouldn't agree with having a super easy way to get those three items... But I definitely support them being re-added somehow. The Conjurer's Garb in particular, I still feel that the way those were acquired was terribly executed.

    i agree.. i only got 2 garbs from the yellow crystals as people kept jumping in and getting the drop.. until i figured out you can get it without even hitting the guy. then i got 2..

    i didnt get any of the lucky ones as when i turned in the blue crystals stealthers would wait and hit the last one.. i used up 100s of them and never got one at all.


    maybe add them to tybol's shadow as a super rare drop.. along with his regular robe..

    Just saying that if they are going to give folk "second chances" at things.... then there are other things that should also be included...

    And honestly outside of being nicely colored the stupid Bane Dragons are fairly useless and an extremely POOR substitute for the Dread Warhorse.

    And while we are on the subject of "tamables" the Fairy Dragon needs to spawn somewhere that it can be tamed...

    Enter the tomb of kings, then go past the fields and down the hall to the larger open room. Go to the east wall and look for a secret door there - follow that path...

    lil tip to those who dont know, if you keep your pack full at 125 items, Nipo wont throw sand/gold into your pack.
    what i do is have stackable items in piles of 1, then when i goto loot i combine two piles to make room in pack.

    happy huntin

    I can see how stealthers would be a problem, but Im unsure of how they would know when the last ones are up. I just waited till like 4am to turn mine in. And yeah I wouldnt use a yellow crystal around others, of course they will jump in.

    And for another post, if you have the yellows you can still get the robe to this day.

    They didn't know (I think), they just waited until someone else had been there for 30 seconds or so and then used just 5 or so blues.

    Not every shard had stealth jerks camping the gypsies in that event- I never missed getting the ones I went for - in fact, I was often the only one doing them at the hours I went.

    And, do note that the Gypsy-dropped robes had an additional property over and above what the Harbinger-dropped ones had. And, that the Harbingers still drop them, if you have yellow crystals; they're still common among some (i.e. most of the ones used since the event have been used to grief IDOCs, especially outside Fel - most people not into such grief still have most of theirs).

    The blackrock golems took a while to kill (10-20 min each if i remember right), so people had to put some effort in to complete some suits.
    Now the same armor pieces spawn on a mob which a dexxer can mow down in 60-90 secs.
    Good idea to have the armor pieces spawn again, bad implementation because its to easy to get them now. Random drop on all peerless / champs would have been a better solution, people would still be able to complete the suits.
