Item Database - The Expensive Kevlar Vest of Professor Jones

The Expensive Kevlar Vest of Professor Jones Icon #21858 The Kevlar Armor has been used for thousands of years, with only small modifications. It still counts among the best when you compare protection to weight. This version gives protection against most types of melee, projectile and energy attacks, and some protection against cold and chemicals. This special vest has got tiny, energized notum studs inserted in the chest and back. They help stabilising and controlling your nano bots. It is a noticeable effect.

Drops where?
DiLiRiUM @ 2002-06-03 11:14
Or rather, doesn't drop. Dr Jones is a loot nazi
Qualkekh @ 2002-08-05 18:03
what are coord of dr jones ... how long is his spawn ?
Nanunin @ 2002-08-30 13:56
Professor Van Horn : Newland Desert 2900 x 1600
He drops the vest, but its rare. some say 1/6...
Garzu @ 2002-10-16 12:04
Its found where Nanunin says, it drops about 1/4, but this +20 drops about 1/24, because there's vests from +15 to +20
Talornin @ 2002-10-19 03:32
Proff Van Horn is a white rhinoman in the Rhinoman valley in NL desert. He has apprx 100k HP. Team of 120ish should take him easy, if they can get him alone that is ;)
Jecc @ 2003-01-15 22:40
hardly a 1/4 drop. I've been to +20 spawns, no drop. It's shitty as hell!
Thakilla5 @ 2003-06-28 21:30
The drop of the vest is 5% (random QL I suppose), the other 95% he drops a journeyman durable boost, he drops one or the other
faelinis @ 2003-07-03 16:02
killed him twice. all i got where some random implants and no Jman/no vest :(
Paxtiny @ 2004-02-01 23:54
dunno how many times i've killed him myself or just been there when he was killed. approx. 40 times and i saw 4 20+, 2 below and ~20 boosts dropped. so the droprate really is a pain in the ass.
huibui @ 2004-03-15 03:15
please tell me wath is a loot-nazi @ delirimum
Paxtiny @ 2004-03-17 23:29
a loot nazi is like a soup-nazi. ne questions^^ what dilirium was trying to say is that van horn is a greedy little bastard who does not want you to have his vest.
seejin @ 2005-05-12 07:04
nice vest stats but requirements are crazy and annoying, dark blue str *shivers*
Keex @ 2005-09-16 19:43
killed him once...+16 vest :p
Deetwo @ 2005-12-24 00:24
reqs for this are really not an issue, capped str + symbs and got plenty...
Need to cap strenght anyway (rhand symb).. and str is easy enough to buff too.

Nanoprogramming though, if your not planning on using it (I.E. a Nanomage enforcer, where this would be *OVERPOWER* at around level 60-80, where you can twink this on without problems), it would be shabby to have to waste IP's on the nanoprogramming, to get the 450-500+ Base you'd need, since buffs @ NP is so lousy... highest OB you can get is +92 - GL with that. this is for NP proffs (tradeskilling traders / engies, or MP's / NT's), IF they go nanomage.. most traders and engies go soli, and Nanomage MP's is just pure gimps now post-AI... Atrox is definantly funcom's lovechildren. even trox docs dominate now, due to all the nanoskill enhancers you can get. nanomages doesnt really have advantages anymore, exept @ enfo's, for the large nanopool. (even soli enfo nanopools are lousy...)
WTB removal of the NP requirement ^^
Burmese @ 2006-09-27 20:58
+160 NP from HQ, +20 Expertise, +92 MP buff, +210 1k token board at lvl 100 and various tutoring/trickle-downs. Don't need to put much IP into NP...just get it to about 258 self buffed to stay out of OE
Venderim @ 2006-10-05 05:07
Thought I should mention that he is also on an 18hour spawn >.<
Yakobo66 @ 2007-04-08 21:30
wouldnt want to go trox on my doc... yeah the low hp is sometimes annoying but when im soloing in inf i need as much nano as possible... you just cant rely singley on nanodelta/rechargers when chain casting heals and high dot's
Jornado @ 2009-01-13 10:59
was this spawn timer randomized with the rest of them?
Tarradax @ 2009-03-03 20:58
Bit late on the reply, but yes. Prof. Horn was randomized at 20min spawns just like all the other uniques. Makes camping him easier but he is still a loot Nazi.
Moniker @ 2010-05-05 03:12

Now drops from "The collector"- the new six man instance in pandemonium.
Therrito @ 2012-03-08 01:22
I got a QL200 the first time he dropped one for me.
I put it on my 200 fr00b MP Petmistress.
