Item Database - Living Dragonflesh Body Armor

Living Dragonflesh Body Armor Icon #37545 The body of the Tarasque never died. It was only cut into pieces too small to have the energy to reconstruct. This piece of living dragon flesh has been made into body armor. The flesh tries to be a part of your body, like it once was a part of the Tarasque. Thus you need to have good control of your body to use it.

OMG that stuff is sick where do i get???!!!
aclevername @ 2003-04-06 19:25
the tarasque =P
Waikaishi @ 2003-06-03 11:20
This should be Martial Artists armor only... heard FC is gonna change it for MAs :).... Enfos take care :)
Xyboc @ 2003-06-27 17:35
Always have the Breastplate of the Azure Reveries, which is what I see most enforcers wearing these days.
Roedran @ 2003-07-08 15:19
+42 damage ownz j00
Hellsayer @ 2003-10-27 19:09
Enforcers these days use Azur Body or First Tir Breastplate, much better than dba and easier to get :D
deltaforce @ 2003-10-31 03:14
well if no one wants theres i will gladly take it off there hands and give them a 200 CAS chest for it to (hehehehe)
Hellslayer @ 2003-12-17 21:37
Well I just spoke for Enforcers^^ Others Do Like it very much, its worth about 300mio creds on DNW.
Hellslayer @ 2003-12-18 02:37
PS: For High Enforcers:)
CruisefiX @ 2004-01-10 01:16
High Enforcers using First Tier Body ? lol
Gng @ 2004-01-25 06:09
what kind of noob enforcer would use tier1? :D
Bayou @ 2004-02-03 16:43
"what kind of noob enforcer would use tier1? :D"

well i think the tier1 body is great for enforcers. just use it myself. i wear a cas/tier1/dragon/mk2 combi ;)
yolchanok @ 2004-03-08 02:21
its THE best body armor you can equip at lvl130. Anything comparable would be "", not the crappy bonus-less Tier p.o.s. body armor. You're just lieing to yourself telling azure is suited better for fighters than this one.
estboy @ 2004-04-14 20:55
Chosen Enforcer Breastplate\Chest :D
Sturmie @ 2004-04-23 19:38
For Enforcers Azure BP is better. -10% nano cost reduction owns for chain mongo.
Holoz @ 2004-09-08 17:43
good thing they're not 800m now, nor were they 2 months ago...

Prices dropped , 400mil-500mil now
Dokalicious @ 2004-11-01 05:33
they are still 600m+ on RK1
Cheysey @ 2004-11-03 18:14
its not the ac thats the main attribute of this armor.. its the add dmg...
ppl would sell their soul for enough dmg, thats why this and that backpack is this expencive... 46+dmg a hit is not to mess with in the long run...
Ironhood @ 2004-11-07 12:22
Well was sold today for 900M ;) cant wait see how high it get's.
zippy @ 2004-11-08 01:28
Prises are going up on rimor , to many are Ebaying credits and that DC goes for Min 500 Bo 800m now
Talan @ 2005-03-29 07:39
Its stablised recently, its going for between 450m and 600m... was up to 1.2b at one stage iirc.
Dreadkeeper @ 2005-04-17 03:17
Dragon chest and Robust Backpack are just a status symbol, anyone with a brain-stem would never pay a combined 2.5b credits for 102 damage added every hit. it's just the kind of thing you can walk around wearing and people say "oooo aaaa". Bump for overrated items.
redliner @ 2005-05-06 19:47
For MAs the added initiatives is gold!

Defres @ 2005-05-17 17:22
the price of this thing is just way too high.
its still going for 750-850mil, the ingot nerf hasnt changed a thing it seems
and the fact that there is just too many ppl willing to pay anything just to squeeze out those last drips of damage doesnt help it either.
Valonstriker @ 2005-06-08 20:54
At the most i've have like 80mil creds. this armor is for people who spend day and night playing this game with no regards to a social life whatsoever (no offence to any of you that do)
Talan @ 2005-06-11 02:06
pfft its easy to earn credits Valon, even to casual players, I've got maybe 2 hours a night to play after work week nights, and I just got mine last night for 490m, and I've still got tons of cash left over. Apply yourself, think, and you can make good cash in little time with a bit of effort.
Falcon11 @ 2005-07-14 01:05
Hi. My name is Seppubot and I play AO a few hours a day, if that.
I have a part-time job, and in 1.5 months I will be a full-time student again (after a short summer break).
I have an active social life that includes many friends, and even a girlfriend.
The only thing I've ever purchased on Ebay was a wide-angle lense for my camcorder.

At the moment, I'm level 203. I have over 1b credits. I don't want a Dchest, but if I did I could have one. Don't stick me (and the MANY others in my situation) in the category of "not having a life," it's a pretty lame stereotype. Money isn't hard to acquire with a little common sense (no offense to those people who don't have much cash atm :P)

Oh, and for all you people out there who are bitching about this item not being worth the money...Don't buy it. If someone wants to pay 700m+ for it, let them.

That is all.
Sorhan @ 2005-07-20 22:25
Seppubot is my pimp daddy.
happypitbull @ 2005-08-07 18:39
Off topic but you can earn a billion credits (over time) farming alien generals if your city does not run raids continuously. Although prices have dropped lead viralbots still sell for over 100 million a piece and you can still get some axp even if no viralbots drop. With the attuned CRU missions it is not as difficult to get CRU for the raid either (especially if you are neutral).

On topic, the Dchest is a nice item and when you think about how much other nice chestpieces require in either credits or time it is not bad compared to other options like combined, beast armor, t3 etc., and is equippable at a fairly low level for its stats while still usable at much higher levels. I personally wouldn't get it for any profession but MA or Shade for higher level players but the added damage is really nice.
rewws @ 2005-09-06 20:53
is tarasque in shadow lands or on rubi-ka? what level is tarasque`?
Dark1947 @ 2005-09-08 17:40
Tara is lvl 200 in Rubi-ka...
triggerzer0 @ 2005-09-28 23:49
think about this: if ingots were removed from the loot table on ELy hecks, the economy of the game would change drastically, cutting prices in half on a lot of the more valuable items. people would have to find new ways to make money, and for those of us with lots of money floating around, it qould be a perfect time to go on a spending spree while the market is still waaay down ^^

*crosses his fingers and hopes for another nerf*
pter666 @ 2005-09-30 18:55
*** off topic**** you guys are noob thinking money only comes form ingots ffs theres so much ways to make creds ,theres no easy ways to make fast creds unless ur 215+(i think)Teh best would be camping sl dynas and while camping collect patterns and get symbs then put teh symbs in a ai shop(if u got one) and do it again and while ur camping ur shop is filling with creds and when u refill ur shop u collect teh creds its easy as that :can take time but very rewarding
Divine @ 2005-10-02 14:51
Me personally i think that CRU is the best way to get cash.
I did 4 hours of CRU, made 70 mill.
Good money.
EyeGuy @ 2005-10-08 18:16
triggerzer0 @ 2005-09-28 23:49
think about this: if ingots were removed from the loot table on ELy hecks, the economy of the game would change drastically.

Ingots have been removed from all SL mobs loot tables now. We are yet to see the drastic change in economy.
dzzirt @ 2005-10-10 14:27
Well am i right thinking this chest is the best gear for MA? Or comb. merc's is better?
Janat @ 2005-10-11 22:47

You really expect the drastic change happen instantly when the patch rolls in? It'll take few months to really see how the prices dropped.
Pillager @ 2005-10-23 11:59
prices even before the ingots got out, were lowering slowly. and on top of that, some items prices are still slowly rising. theres still plenty of ways to get money w/o ingots, just do it the old fashioned way because dont forget before SL was put in, and all its stuff it brought like easier time making money, people had to do it through mishs/plain old killing mobs and selling their loot. and stop complaining about prices, if it was you selling the items, you would sell it for as much as you could,you wouldnt lower your price thats just plain and simple, so dont complain about the money change. so you just have to work a little bit more to get that item, in the end it'll be worth the wait.
Comi @ 2005-10-24 18:49
btw, IMO funcom should make it MA only armor, since obviously thats what its intended to be.
lameleor @ 2005-10-28 22:10
did clans take over this place because im going to scream if they did some 1 told me they did!
Pillager @ 2005-11-01 09:00
the castle where Tarasque is, is clan. all the mobs in the top floor are clan sided, along with the guards outside.
hito @ 2005-11-02 05:59
Blitzing Nano's is kinda rewarding too. Me, personally thought about that and think its a easy way of getting money. Maybe you don't geht 100M fast but a mission takes a minute and you get all the blitzable nano's for aaaaaaall those lazy twinkers out there. Thats just my way of money making ;)
houserocker @ 2005-11-05 23:31
People struggling to sell it for 400m lately, it may just drop into a pricerange the rest of us can afford.
Cylone @ 2005-11-11 20:59
howmuch are the other parts going for at the moment?
xxprunkxx @ 2005-11-26 12:24
yeah but seriously how can you make money easily... bot farming?? you need a city and lots of cru a doc or a super pimp advent to really solo aliens and even then drop rate is at best 1 in 4 so with others in a team that can be 1 in 32.... so thats a lot of wasted time... Wut else really symbs?? prices have plummeted.. reality is people who had money before ingot nerf who could make 10's of millions an hour will continue to have money and those who got sl post ingot nerf will either have to be really lucky or spend lots of time making money. either way dragon chest is way overpriced at even 400 mil and boo for omni taking over rk2
4n7H0r @ 2005-12-02 17:01
making Creds with farming CRUs might be a way to get much money in a short time but... where comes the money from? The money comes from players who sold their loot in (trader)shops. You dont sell CRUs in shops, you sell them to players. If nobody would sell his missiloot you wont get the CRUs sold. Now where the ignots are removed from the loottable its hard to get much money in a short while by selling loot. The way to get much money in a short while is to sell items to other players. But the whole money comes from the players who are selling loot. You need many of those players to go the way of getting much money in a short while.

The more players who want to go the fast way u have the higher prices gets and the less every Cred worths.

(btw excuse my english ^^)
Comi @ 2005-12-10 03:20
Got mine for 350m on RK2 , tho prices are on the rise again.
12lettername @ 2005-12-23 10:08
OK, simple tip on making money. Level. At level 190 my adv can blitz ql250 missions (not easy, but I only die about 1/4 missions) for 1M per mission from cash reward+anima shop food bonus. At level 190 I can blitz a CRU mission and have the boss dead in about 5 minutes per mission, make 600K from shop food, get a CRU about 2/5 missions, sell that quickly and easily for 80K a ql. At 200 or so I'll be able to get into inferno and pearl camp. At 200 I'll be able to blitz ql200 implants again, which sell quickly t 800K each. Moral of the story: Blitzing FTW
Rktim @ 2006-01-04 15:08
OMG a armor shades can use ^.^
Azzy @ 2006-01-13 11:19
Use it on my fixer.... <3
Comi @ 2006-01-15 03:50
Note: has been dropping like MAD lately from tarasque, almost 1/4 droprate.
slitheris @ 2006-01-26 09:47
well if you wanna see price drop... just give every subscriber a Dchest.
Soljaz @ 2006-04-13 01:12
has anyone seen a froob with this before?
Woody @ 2006-04-18 01:05
I use this on my lvl 160 advy, its really good
Xevil @ 2006-05-15 09:15
Everyone is complaining about the price.IMO wouldnt it be easier to just farm it yourself.Last Dchest was like 120 points on Tnet.Farming everything FTW.
Yakobo66 @ 2006-05-26 15:52
so easy to get on an engy, slayerdroid transference ftw
AlphaCenta @ 2006-06-08 21:14
Also easy to get on an agent (no idea if it's actually good :p):

FP/AP/Mimic Prof Engineer, cast Slayerdroid Transference and put it on :-D
Yakobo66 @ 2006-08-16 23:34
saw going for 800mil... way overdone lol
Neverest @ 2006-08-22 01:56
This should be MA MP's only! Clearly made for that purpose!!11
Yakobo66 @ 2006-09-09 21:31
AlphaCenta @ 2006-06-08 21:14
Also easy to get on an agent (no idea if it's actually good :p):

1.2k ac's, 300hp and 42 dam.... would you say no as an agent? :P
Ginsumaster @ 2007-01-25 13:32
My shade has this and loves it.
Russm @ 2007-01-26 11:40
whats wrong with the price? 500-600m isnt impossible to farm
jlife @ 2007-02-14 23:10
Wtb this for my shade <3
get my nippy on and get some Strong armor :o
wintypes @ 2007-03-03 20:25
hm... gotta farm creds again :) cotwk + dchest migt be nice for a froobie TL5 adv :)
samuel1001 @ 2007-05-15 00:58
he only thing i dont like about this set other than what it takes to get it is the tease u get from the level to wear them head item is lvl 110 and chest 130 pants arms and the boots lvl 100 why not have all the same level?
sharmouta @ 2007-06-04 10:40
Everyone is after this for the +42 damage. It adds 29 to MA! leave it for MAs and MA dmg professions. Go get ai chest instead and a couple of aruls. Everyone wants to be a DD, this game is more than just damage.
They should put req: MA from 1000, should solve a lot :p
hawkdragon @ 2007-07-13 11:52
shar one problem w that is that shades also use ma and that seeing how this armor does not say "not shade" shades would be good in this
Ivanth @ 2007-08-18 14:34
whats the price of it now at rk1
Xira @ 2007-09-11 17:59
450-500ish mil on RK1
Loethlin @ 2007-12-15 05:30
"They should put req: MA from 1000, should solve a lot :p"
Dilomax @ 2008-01-20 03:19
this items is ideal for agents anytime espcially endgame, agents have most Add Dmg buffs in game with this chestpiece included an agent can easily reach 600 add dmg(not including gnat's,concentration, or any other profs buffs) so i say agents have most reason for this.....
greesyboy @ 2008-02-02 16:43
how funny saying it was intended to be MA only

the MA requirement is just so it fits the description
Silverheal @ 2008-03-04 13:12
wts the lvl lock on it or my lvl 53ish Doc would have it on :)
Zinrax @ 2008-05-18 16:35
300M on RK1 now
nStop149 @ 2008-06-05 10:24

Alex_Fitz @ 2008-10-01 10:16
Ive been saving for a long while now to try and get this. The credit cost for this is like college money in real life. lol. Looking forward to getting it though.
gergiskoo @ 2008-11-03 01:55
yeah but like college its worth every cent
Shadowsols @ 2008-11-09 04:44

gergiskoo @ 2009-03-03 01:32

Flatvia @ 2010-02-13 04:09
uhm it's not dropping it's up to like 600 mil now
Troika @ 2010-06-01 17:28
got this from gms for 60m, someone forgot an extra zero in their shop terminal lol
Zinrax @ 2010-06-15 00:54
60m is very cheap indeed.. no one half sane would ever pay more then 200m for this tho.. that 600m musta been one of those items who never sells from gms.
Xebulba @ 2010-06-15 14:51
150-180M on RK1, last I was privy to the purchase of at least.
killergoa @ 2010-09-20 16:12
selling for 130-150 now
Ciekafsky @ 2010-10-19 10:28
Ive seen one for 100 mln no to long ago on rk2. The end is near!111
Jawanskelig @ 2011-01-28 00:53
Droprate of interesting TARA drops:

Name|Drop rate|Average cost in TARA points
Dchest 19.5% 53
GoC 18.5% 171
RBP 8.5% 214
GPH 7.5% 77
CotWK 7.5% 44

Happy Hunting!
(Calculation based on the 200 last tarasque raids, omni side)
