If Shadowbane had any time left for history, today would go down in it. The Elite Vorgrim Armor drops from mobs who spawn once every 30 minutes. The armor has a <10% chance of dropping per kill. It cannot be stolen off the mob without killing it. And it is heavily camped. (There are also Vorgrim Daggers, Bows, and Staffs). Today I went from having no vorgrim to having almost a full Thief set. I somehow managed to dodge ALL of the campers, beat the odds, and loot a whopping 2 daggers in a row, the chestpiece, the gloves, and the bow. Along with getting a Dexterity of the Gods rune (Dex +2, Max Dex + 40) rune that let me max out my dex to a higher score than most people can even dream of: 180 without buffs. (262 with my current equipment and buffs). In short, I had a 1 to 1 million chance of getting all of that equipment consecutively (i.e. no dropper came up empty), and I did it. Most people spend weeks camping the Vorgrim armor to get where I got in about 2 hours. Ridiculous, no? Anyway…my toon is also about to hit the level cap on there, so then he will be the Perfect Thief™. If anyone wants to join me during the last days of ShadowBane, go to http://chronicle.ubi.com for more info. I play on the Thurin server and my main character’s name is Aeri Atlanis. You can /who Atlanis to see if I’m using an alt as well. Good night!!
