I pulled a set of +5 Mithral Full Plate this morning. It had a minor prefix and, if I remember correctly, a 3rd level suffix. As I was preparing to send it to my crafter for deconstruction, it hit me.
This is a set of +5 Mithral Full Plate.
Once upon a time, this stuff was worth whatever you wanted to ask for it. It was a very rare drop, and it was the best Armor Class armor one could acquire. Now I am going to let it go for a chance at two or three greater essences.
I wondered if I was being hasty. I considered disjuncting it instead, maybe someone will want it for a crafting blank? I tried it on – pretty generic, not one of the better-looking skins but not bad either. Mmmm. Undecided, I decided to check the auction house for guidance.
Oh my. Six pages of Mithral Full Plate. So much for the rare drop aspect. And some of it is available for a 2500 plat buyout. So much for the idea of disjuncting it into a crafting blank.
Sadly I went back to the mailbox and sent it to my crafter.
Bye Mithral Full Plate. Was fun knowing you.
I wonder if this is what being Paris Hilton feels like?
