I dinged 20 a few days ago and have started my armor quests for cold forged stuff and have the class sword we get for hallmark and a skullcrusher so in those area's I'm set but my rings, bracelets, necklace, and even belt are all pretty much from like my lvl 10 days are are grey and I cannot for the life of me find better stuff so I was wondering if anyone knows of some quests near freeport for better stuff?Also, anyone find a decent shield not from a merchant? I've heard talk of a waterlogged shield in the nek forest but not 100% on how to find it <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

<DIV>I'm working on the Greater Lightstone prestige quest for a better necklace. Even the "dimly lit" version I got for doing practically nothing was far superior to what I had been wearing. I'm sure it'll be a great neck item when its complete.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Shield.. Best I've found is some kind of non-magical Kite Shield in Nektulos forest. No stats, but excellent Shield Factor. Cant use it at 23 yet though. It was a chest drop off crabs at the beach which are easy to farm. While we waxed them I got no less than 5 of those shields, so theyre not uncommon either.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Unfortunately I can't remember everything else since server is down. I know I have a decent Orc related earring called Bloodstone Orc Warrior Earring, but I believe that was a quest drop in commonlands that required me kill X ammount of orc warriors... simple enough.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>If you want a bracelet, the same guy that gives Ohgram gives a semi-decent bracelet called Corrupted Bracelet of the Spiritkeeper which sends you to wailing caves to kill some spiritkeepers near the essences at the bottom of one of the pits. Again, west freeport at Ohgram quest guy.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I'm sure you can look up the stats on those items in the item database if you'd like to see them more in depth.</DIV>

<DIV>For shield, you can go kill Paddlefoot in Nektulos.</DIV> <DIV>He can drop the Waterlogged Kite Shield, which is **mods 4 teh win!!1!** nice.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>To start the lightstone quest, you need to go to the druid rings in Commonlands at night, find the somethingsomething Wisp and kick it's **mods 4 teh win!!1!** (It's about lvl 20), it'll drop a burned out lightstone i think it is.</DIV> <DIV>Take that to Cannix Silverflame and he'll start the quest for ya.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<DIV>Paddlefoot is found on the island in the torrential river.  He's a giant beaver and looks hilarious.  He's orange(^^) at 20, not sure when he turns white as I haven't seen him in awhile.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>In Fallen Gate there is a dropped pouch that gives you an easy necklace quest.</DIV> <DIV>In Fallen Gate there is a dropped ring that gives you a ring quest..  very rare though.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Other than that, player made jewelry is nice to fill the extra slots while looking for more real gear.</DIV>

For the late teens/early 20's I'm seeing alot of fighters with the store bought Ashwood Kite Shield, upgrading to Nektrulos drops in the mid 20's.I'm wearing 3 pieces of player-made jewelry, and the 2nd or 3rd lightstone (need the 2 orc raid mobs now).

<DIV>Lightstone quest for good neck, even better if you kill Rama'nai even if you cant end up getting people to kill the 2 raid bosses for the last part.</DIV> <DIV>Do the Antonica Race then Commonlands Race for a very nice bracer (orange at 25)</DIV> <DIV>Fallen Gate hammer quest for a good weapon (or thundering steepes falling star quest is likely good also)</DIV> <DIV>Buy some player made jewelry for sure, they are making "pristine" stuff that is quite alot better than anything I've found questing.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I have about 1460 AC at level 25, more than any other tank I've grouped with (even though sometimes I wasnt the MA /boggle)</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I do currently have 1 grey con item that went grey when I dinged 25 and I cant afford to replace yet as well.</DIV>

<DIV>SHIELD: The one and only "Stormshield" drops from Gutfeather in Commonlands. Skill to use is 90 and mastery is 115, which makes it green to me (very underpowered) but it still provides 224 AC and some stats and resistance, which is more then any other shield I've seen. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Tip of the day: Use alot of Wizard DPS to kill it... I have a theory that he drops stuff depending on what things that kills him - ive killed him with Shadowknight things the last 2 times, and both times he has dropped Dagger of Dicease.</DIV>

<DIV>like some said the store bought ashwood is what im using, the one that drops has higher difficulty and less AC than the store bought one, waiting till I hit 28 to use one that dropped for me in Nektropos that has some decient buffs.</DIV> <DIV>I have all player made jewelry, just found a better neck from scribe grizowld(sp?) in east freeport, had a few nice stats on it so I sold my player made and use it now.</DIV>
