Is Rubicite supposed to be dropping? It's not (on Riz)

    Killed dozens of named that should be dropping them, not seen one piece. No one in global chats has seen any either. This is on Rizlona.

    Pretty sure rubicite was one of those items that "isnt coming back", like manastone, and a handful of others.

    Is this a recent development? Rubicite was in on a recent TLP, I can't remember which atm though.

    Curious why Rubicite would get removed, on these servers or in the past, it's not like it's op or anything. It's just plate with no stats and a cool color. The BP has +3 regen which is hardly massive.

    On agnarr what happened was it unlocked at some point after launch, then went away after some time.

    The last TLP I remember rubicite being on was fippy. At least that I personally remember seeing it.
  6. Hinastorm86 Augur

    It was on phinny or mangler or coirnav, I can't remember which one, but I distinctly remember looting it and selling it.

    Interesting, I am certain it wasnt on Selo's, but I think that server started out with Cazic temple 2.0.
    I leveled for like 6 levels in CT on Coirnav and dont remember seeing it. Cant say for the other two servers.

    Maybe they forgot to flip a switch or its just insanely rare.

    Rubicite armor pieces were patched out of the original game about six months after launch. The two-month window of availability on TLPs was a dev decision; I presume it will be the same on the newest servers. On live servers they are available as collector's items from the Shadow Haven casino, or from rare drops in the Hardcore version of Cezic-Thule when that is open.

    Originally, Ravenscale replaced Rubicite. If memory servers from Mangler, both will drop during that window.

    It'll start dropping after about a month. Just update your script to farm a different zone in the meanwhile.

    It was on Agnarr, more than a few people had it. The BP had regen so shaman wanted it for classic.

    I believe those all drop on the TLPs, but not until the server has been out for a time and it drops for a limited time. Mana stones are limited to pre-kunark areas (and sometimes does not work in revamped zones)

    When they finally did start dropping on Mangler, the drop rate on the boots was bugged. Was set to something ridiculous like 1% and I'm not exaggerating. Had dozens of rubicite bps rot while camping the boots and spoke to several other players who were going for a full set and had the same experience. Rest of the set was very easy to obtain though.

    Jus to note started a bug report in the bug forum for this very issue had two others on the server confirm it. One has killed the Cennobite 75-100 times, another 40+ times, and I've killed him around 90 times, None of us have gotten 1 pair of boots that's over 200 kills and no boots, so that's less than 0.5% chance of a rubicite boot drop the BP's are just rotting. It should not be rarer than the BP. I've let at least 10 rubicite Breastplates rot and about 12 ravenscale BP's rot.

    The NPC named Cazic Cenobite does not drop Rubicite Boots.
    The NPC named a lizard ritualist does drop the Rubicite Boots and I verified that this can and will drop on Rizlona / Aradune.

    Note: this might not be correct or in line with classic, but this is the way it works now.

    I looted my rubi boots from the ritualist

    Hmm I've talked with people camping the ritualist and all they ever get is the SK quest armor they haven't seen him drop any rubicite but will see. thank you for looking at it Prathun
