Item Database - Summon Grid Armor Mk IV

Summon Grid Armor Mk IV Icon #16320 This temporarily creates a Multi-Spatial Phasing Beacon, which is used by fixers to enable them to exist both in Gridspace and the real world at the same time. The appearance of the fixer when in this form has lead to this device being called 'grid armor'. When being worn, the fixer evades most attacks, yet can still interact with the world as normal. The Beacon lasts for 6 hours.

Blitz team missions (join up with random ppl - the more the better). Each pull some missions and zone. Ql of mission should typically be 20 ql lower than that of the wanted nano (Boss loot is of higher ql than mission setting). I managed to find 2 GA nanos in about a week this way :)
Lasting @ 2002-12-12 14:12
So if your were going for MkIV you would have to blitz team mission bosses at a 120 qlvl setting? I was always under the impression that you can't find a GA nano except in instruction disc form which would be of a lower qlvl.
madcow @ 2002-12-13 18:44
hehe, you dont find GA nanos, you find GA Instruction discs and thats where Tradeskillz come in, they make it into a nano and you use it ;D
faelinis @ 2002-12-25 06:12
i found 2x GA id's in ql 94 missions...
MrCaine @ 2003-02-18 02:28
I realy dont think its any solution to how to get the GA. I found my GA4 when blitzing a lvl 109 mission. I thought as the lot do, that the ga disc drops form bosses at the same lvl as the disc, thats not true. The might do that, but as for me I found it on a boss that was lvl 116. I did 145 missions before getting it. Furthermore, dont spend all those mills the ga. Its a great armor, but we, the fixers are digging our own tumb, when we willingly pays 300 mill for a ga. :D good luck on the hunt guys!
Dead66 @ 2003-11-02 02:33
any one know where GA drops?

what is the price on GA4 atm??
Morthoseth @ 2005-10-13 20:28
Jeff, pwnd and it's variation predate Halo, as well as AO, but quite a bit.
Anyway, this nano now goes for 150m, and is usable by 75ish. Not too bad.
tegrere @ 2005-11-10 07:22
at lvl 75, it probably wouldnt be better then ga 3, because of the 50% efficency or so.
triggerzer0 @ 2005-11-11 02:20
you can get it on at 100% with mochies running.
Salovida @ 2006-01-01 07:54
rocks not sucks, level 81 fixer with this and SPB willpwn
shibbi @ 2006-01-12 07:06
whats the min level a trox can cast this.....assuming he has eye, ear, and a brain symb
phlyk @ 2006-01-28 01:14
For a fr00b, at what point is GAIV no longer worth trying to get? Would it still be useful at level 170, 180 or even 190?
grid.docult @ 2006-03-06 00:45
GA4 is worth about 100mill it has a insane drop rate!! it can drop anywere from chests or random mobs but i did over 100missions and still no drop....
mosnami @ 2006-03-06 08:45
GA is a bless for froob. For SL/AI however u might wanna skip it.

err man its uber in ai too maybe not for endgame but for around lvl 100-180 its still good
Theothrwoman @ 2006-05-23 07:51
GA4 is teh best of the GA's but beware of the FC nerf. I was self casting 4 at 138 so no real strain. Absolutely SUCKS for AI. Alien weps rip right thru and many AI mobs are casters wich GA is worthless against.
Datagutt @ 2006-05-26 13:47
hmm wonder if i can do this at lvl 60
vlada @ 2006-06-03 22:08
dont know about GA 4 but my lvl 60 froob has a non OE GA 3(with mochies) and hes untouchable(if i see an NT its meep time:)
mosnami @ 2006-06-11 17:28
Most payer will skip GA after lvl 180 and favor Shadowweb spinner.
fixerer @ 2006-06-17 14:00
found 1 in lvl 132 team mish in BS pulled in OA. soloing. on mob.
noir1991 @ 2006-06-21 19:46
on a normal mob ?
Tericion @ 2006-07-08 10:34
I found a GA4 on a lvl183 slayerdroid in a solo mission - quite surprised :D sold on Rimor for 110M
noir1991 @ 2006-07-12 17:30
grats :)
Slintra @ 2006-07-19 19:51
so if i blitz a 150-160 mish, it will drop?
Mr_H8 @ 2006-08-08 06:15
seen an orgmate find this on a random mission chest. was a level 190 mission roughly.
the rest of the team nearly mugged him :D
i prefer spinners. cheaper, can wear other armor, works in SL and i don't need to worry about mat.crea ;]
Soulreviver @ 2006-10-08 07:59
How much can i sell the nano crystal for? I've looked on the forums on AO, but since i'm a froob i can't post there.
Ryugu @ 2006-10-13 10:07
about 5 gillion credits
zerogates @ 2006-11-03 17:11
100 mil is current rate but people complain till they get you to about 80 mil or so. They usually don't get any GA, if you really want to know prices ask someone to chek GMs for you
sythoid @ 2006-11-12 07:13
ga4 for peep's with expansion's other than then tl3/4 pvp is sorta a waist of credz. I know i wouldn't team someone wearing ga4 at 180 in an ai raid.

I think its not a waist of creds, its uber.. and from lvl 90-150 u might spend time on rk doing tokens, blitzing, pvp etc and then its good. Ofc not in airaid at lvl 180 :) Then u want CSS

I'd like to see you getting your SMG 1001 at lvl 81.
Twellara @ 2007-02-09 01:37
1 lucky day. 1st i found ga2 - a couple missions later GA4 - just a bit work as it seems

I'd like to see you getting your SMG 1001 at lvl 81.

people get syndicate on at 100 so 200 less at 81 doesnt seem so bad
Ephyon @ 2007-05-11 16:46
1001 smg is doable at 76 aswell ^^
Forhire01 @ 2007-08-07 09:21
PW is a common drop for expensive disk. Also very camped of course.
buttmuffin @ 2007-09-22 15:00
sorry to be so off subject, but skills start capping at about level 82 and they're capped till you hit 100
alesicis @ 2007-10-13 03:06
I'd like to see 1001 smg at lvl 81 as well.
rico648 @ 2007-11-02 18:59
its easy

76 fixer (abilities capped)
394 smg+ 37 (cola 6) + 30 (capped research) + 32 (smg mastery 3) + 79 (major suppresor) +23 (comp attri.+ranged expertise) = 597
347 burst +4 (dark kin 2) + 10 (capped research) + 3 (smg mastery 3) + 50 (major suppresor) + 23 (comp. attri + ranged special expertise) = 440

this is w/o implants/ armor/ ob's

so lets continue

597 smg + 301 (ai suit ql 120, +ql 200 imps) = 898

440 burst + 205 (ai suit ql 120, fixers ring of breaking + ql 200 imps ) = 645

898 smg + 645 burst? damn seems were short =[

of course not =P

898 + 132 (team wrangle) = 1030 smg
645 + 110 (riot control) = 755 burst

requirements on spb
1005 smg / 750 burst
oe requirements 804 smg
600 burst

meet both requirements
can keep gun 100% selfed

and you can add easily another 20 or 30 quickly with just +10 pen ring, and exterminator occular sym

ananamie @ 2007-11-21 00:56
rico thnx that is good help for a new player like me ! :D
gdb2222 @ 2007-12-13 22:01
What rico didn't tell you is that the AI suit will cost around 1 billion creds, so most (new) players would find that pretty difficult to manage.
regsvr32 @ 2008-01-07 10:48
and what gdb2222 didnt tell u that u can farm\buy crus and do ai raids like me:-)
mosnami @ 2008-03-31 08:47
Cru is dirt-cheap this day, QL400 only worth 10mil now. But thanks to it, ai raid has been really easy to do now :)
Kilawatt @ 2008-04-10 18:46
I had a ga3 fixer solo totw and foremans at 50 ofc the 170imps and the 160 pern helped :D. Btw ga3 was at 75%
Kilawatt @ 2008-04-10 18:51

Logistica @ 2008-05-14 06:13

Zinrax @ 2008-08-31 00:13

Fizzers1 @ 2008-12-12 06:16

Ata1981 @ 2008-12-19 10:38
Heheh my second GA IV ID dropped from a master assassin in a ql 200 mish, some days ago,im lucky lol
Binarybot @ 2009-04-22 22:34
Got GA2, 3, and 4 in back to back to back missions on my neutral engineer, rolling max hard missions when he was lvl 80-90. One was in a chest, one was off a fixer mob, and the last was from a boss. I crapped my pants after finding the second one, but the third put me over the top for the month
dynahunter38 @ 2010-02-03 10:22
just thought i'd weigh in here with my 2 cents since I'm hunting this atm. A lot of what people say about how to hunt is strictly rumor or how they happened to stumble on it, there is no proven effective way to find it otherwise it wouldn't cost so ****** much. The only things from the ga hunting threads worth keeping in mind are that yes, plants do drop a lot of TS, so that might be a place to spend a few hours til u get bored out of your mind. The other is the fabled team mish boss... since im hunting it myself, I find team mish bosses drop stuff in a certain range of ql both above and below the boss lvl. Im pulling 140 boss to try to minimize that range but i'm still finding ql104 i think was the lowest i found all the way up to ql180 something nanos and IDs. it probably doesnt matter what ql u pull it will only shift the range slightly, ga4 will still fall in that range, weighted with i'm guessing a slightly less than 1% chance of dropping, and heavily weighted to all those unrollable nanos we all know and love if you've spent any time hunting. That being said recently I've heard of it dropping from pw borgs and even a slayerbot so it all comes down to random luck. happy hunting.
dynahunter38 @ 2010-02-08 23:47
or, u can have the coolest person in the whole world loot it in a 128 token mish, and then give it to you... thank u you know who u are...
mihaitag @ 2010-03-20 19:52

Nimthrax6 @ 2015-04-03 05:46
Psssttt, I'll let you in on the secret, it drops easier for the nano classes.
