There are several options to upgrade your character’s Chest slot in Velious without raiding. There are now three questlines in Velious that offer Chestpieces, including the Othmir quests, the Flying Gryphon questline, and the new Thrael’Gorr quests introduced in Game Update 61. Public Quests have also offered a Chestpiece for those who are either extremely lucky or extremely patient.
Depicted at the top of this article is the power progression in Scout Chestpieces from Othmir quest gear all the way to Zek HM. Click the image to view all 11 items side-by-side.
Chestpieces by Zone
Why ToFS x2?
The Chestpiece drops from Velious dungeons gradually increase in power as does the difficulty of the dungeons they hail from. You may wonder why we’ve included the Tower of Frozen Shadow x2 raid in our table. This is largely because another group zone on our table, the Temple of Rallos Zek HM (Hard or Challenge mode) requires raid gear, and rewards a Chestpiece with a red adornment slot. Further, the Tower of Frozen Shadow x2 raid is now being run almost daily by single groups of very well-geared folks. Finally, the ToFS x2 Chestpiece is arguably a step down from the Drunder: Tower of Tactics Chestpiece. For all these reasons, we include ToFS x2 in our list.
The Temple of Rallos Zek HM (Hard Mode) Chestpieces thoroughly thrash all of the other options on our list for most if not all classes. For one thing, they’ve borrowed the Class Focus from the raid/fabled chestpieces, as well as picking up a Red adornment slot. Great power comes with high mender bills, and Zek HM is something that most people aren’t even attempting at this point.
Chestpiece Armor Guide
When we put together the table of these 11 Chestpieces, it was too wide for the EQ2Wire layout, so we’ve put it into a separate printable document. Open the EQ2Wire’s Velious Chestpiece Armor Guide in a separate window.
