Gi for my Monk

    Long have I wanted cool looking Gis for my Monk, but most seem either really High LvL, Marketplace, or hard-to-get Drops. One I had my eye on once, Disciple's Gi of the Dragon, she out-leveled the mob awhile ago, and thus can't get the drop anymore. I've seen some in the broker but I can't buy them as a free player (and 140p seems a bit steep)

    Are there other options?

    Please visit Ouka's Great Gi Gallery on Maj'dul (Mara Estate prestige, Qeynos). I have everything you're looking for there. What few gis I have there that don't have books just yet-- I just haven't written them, but I know how to get them.

    Thank you, I'll have to look. :) ...I NEVER KNEW THERE WERE SO MANY!!! How do I Choose?!

    She currently wears the Halloween armor, which is actually pretty awesome, but I want more options.

    Visit a chronomage in most cities, the most obvious of which is near the docks in Qeynos, next most obvious is right near the world bell in Greater Faydark. Chrono to the level you want, kill the mob until you get the drop. Then /unmentor to get back to your level.

    Spoiler, this is the best instance for Gi, if you have a female character: https://eq2.fandom.com/wiki/The_Palace_of_Sabaron It's strangely not listed in the dungeon timeline. Well kept secret. You may need an actual group if you're not far above the level of the dungeon. Look for a guide if you find that you can't one shot the last boss. I don't remember the mechanic anymore.

    Thank you, Holvarn, if the drops in the Palace are tradeable my Zerker (100H) might be able to handle it solo.

    All my characters are Female :)

    Edit------ Well that's one down, Took HOURS even using my Berserker to quick-thrash the leopards

    That's the generic Sathiran style gi that is spread out across numerous trash mobs across the game. I can't even make a write-up on it yet because I can't think of a proper name other than "Generic Sathirian Gi".

    It's the Disciple's Gi of the Dragon from the Blood-thirsty Snow Leopards in Everfrost.

    I don't care if it's generic, it matches the hat. LoL
    I'd like to collect all the color variations, the Dragon-styles too.

    I have every gi in the game (that can still be obtained) except for one that drops off a contested epic that only drops 2 items among a loot pool of over 60.

    I categorize them by expansion and style (Monk, Brawler, Bruiser, Faydwere, Sathirian, Dragon, Thalumbra, Dress, Shissar, Elemental, etc), not physical descriptions which are much harder to actually describe. I don't count Uniform of the Forest Assassin or Artisan's Formal Ensemble as dress-style gis because they're not leather chest pieces that give a full-body appearance. Yes, I am nitpicking there, because those formal dresses were put into the game long before more combat-style dresses were added to the game specifically for brawlers to wear.

    Well, Hanshi's Gi of Prowess is not Black/Red, its quite Blue/White/Gold(or Tan?) actually.
    (I don't like that there seems to be a rip in the left sleeve, is that a glitch?)

    At least it still kinda goes with the hat...

    Which race? There are some known clipping issues with the Vah Shir model, and the older-style gis like the monk and bruiser variants are a bit on the low resolution side.

    Yes FalconClash you're right. The Hanshi's Gi of Prowess in my Villa looks like gold/blue/purple on the female mannequin, but it's red/black/silver on the male mannequin facing her. But I don't see a rip in the sleeve. I forgot to mention in my original post that I was listing information about male mannequins, since all my characters are males and mostly all Monks. Sorry about the confusion. Also, I checked a few things and noticed I made a few mistakes. I'd say my original post is only about 90% accurate. But hey, this is a game. Have fun!

    I tried to post images in this forum before but I was unsuccessful. Maybe I'll try again tomorrow.

    Half-Elf Female. Too bad, I like it otherwise, even if it is a bit more revealing that the others. I guess monks can be Saxy, not something I ever really considered.

    I was looking forward to a Black/Red one, but blue is nice too

    I'm going to have to craft my own Mannequins so they dont start clogging up my Inventory/storage. Good thing my tailor is high enough level/faction to get the recipe book and make them.

    How about this?...

    (( "This common Sathiran-style gi can be obtained from multiple sources around Norrath and under several different names (All are identical in appearance and color, but levels vary)

    EverFrost - Disciple's Gi of the Dragon - Drops from {a Bloodthirsty Snow Leopard} Rare spawn (No questing required)

    Thundering Steppes - Expert's Gi of Ability - Quest line from Jacques near Antonica Griffin Tower, "Watch Your Step", Part IV awards Gi.

    Zek, the Orcish Wastes. - Hanshi's Gi of the Tiger - Long Quest line Starting with Mess Sergeant Akseltz at the Docks. Must do all quests up to "Maintaining the Grassblade Flow" given by Orca in an alcove behind Deathfist Lookout" ))

    ...add whichever others that may exist

    Well, it's not that. They all have the same appearance for radically different names. If there was enough of them to established a naming pattern for the book itself, I could write that as the title. I can't just write it as "Generic Sathirian Gi". All of these were also added into the game during the reitemization of 2011, which happened right after I had left the game for 8 years. It's like how I wrote the white Monk gi as "Chainweave Gi" because that was **THE** first gi in the game, despite adding a few examples of others you can get from mobs or quests.

    i just boosted my poor neglected Barbarian Monk to 120 and the best part was rediscovering the Crafted Deathfist Citadel Adept Blood Hide set as modeled by Dominati Demande on EQ2 Traders
