Ok dose anyone else find this items rent, WAY to high
for just a 5 stat item, thats not damageable?
I mean I look on status, nothing comes up.
There are other 5stat items on body that dont
have anywhere neer that rent, even another one
thats undamageable too.
If the rent if correct, can I please know why?
I mean if it has a resistance or weakness, please
let it show up in status. This goes for a lot
of other items, plantinum leaf, jewelled saber, etc etc
just looking for clarification on why this items rent is
so damn high, thanks

<worn on body> Mannanan Mac Lir's coat of twice smelted mail
it's damageable, look at me if you don't believe me :)
of course, that only makes its rent value even sillier.

at minorly damaged....
That was a pkiller too :)

Remember, you pay extra for AC that's above what the builders consider
to be the max for the slot. I could up the rent on that object so it's
where it's supposed to be.

Er, the AC isn't THAT great on that item. There are on body items that
have +5 net stats and better AC for less rent. Frankly, I still don't see
that this item is in line with the rest of the eq on the mud, rent-wise.

Yes its the highest on body rent item in the game.
and yet it dosent give the most AC for that slot
and there are a few net 5 stat items, with better ac
for WAY less rent.
I still dont get it

keep in mind, that here on legend, we tend not to pay rent
on something because of it's stats.. it's determined more
on the material the item is made of. in this case, I'd guess
that twice smelted mail would be a high cost item, and therefor
-Adolph, not Hitler.

or keep in mind that we can post whatever we like on this
board - point out an item that is obviously screwed up
and get colorfull and insightfull responses like kaige's
earlier on the append list
Way to be immortal staff!

We have rules to follow for how much rent an item should be... Some
items will cost more based on those rules. Sometimes, they may appear
to cost too much for what they do, and sometimes this is indeed the
case, at which point the item often is changed. Our rules are only
guidelines for the -minimum- rent an item has to be, it doesn't mean
the builder can't make it more expensive for one reason or another.
If Kaige says this item is actually too low on rent for the specs...
it could be worse than it is, then!

You are all overlooking the obvious, I know from experience that this
item gives you Protection from Kaige and NO_SLAY, you all whine too much.
