where do you find these?
where do the drop and what mobs?
Thx for any assistance :-)
sprousa @ 2002-08-14 17:32
Camelot. Tarasque drops it sometimes.
Nokken @ 2002-10-28 10:48
How much is this item worth? }:)
namorick @ 2002-11-05 11:30
canit be wear with ga ?
systmh @ 2003-05-04 05:31
to put it simply, no.
Ariac @ 2004-12-24 14:32
Last sold went for 125m
boniek_pl @ 2005-01-04 19:11
drops almost all the time from tara nowadays so i dont know why this is so expensive still (should be like 50m per max)
zyx21 @ 2005-01-24 08:01
TBH, go look at your faction pads or globe of sufferance... or even VTE...

This is _TOTALLY_ overrated.
boniek_pl @ 2005-02-04 13:21
not overrated for ma or shade who want to do as much damage as possible in team:)
Lunacya @ 2005-03-03 12:47
shades get tier 2 shoulders instead of this >.<
zyx22 @ 2005-03-09 06:23
wow 2% crit.

Use a scope for MA.
15+24+7= +46% crit for MA.
Deesnuts @ 2005-06-25 00:41
From what nanos/stuff are you drawing those numbers from?
Volkanov @ 2005-06-25 23:13
well lets say a random MA:
8% from scope
24% from UVC
1% from helm
2% from these globes
= 35%

Maybe u can get more.
Shareida @ 2005-07-20 16:46
8% from scope
24% from UVC
1% from helm
2% from these globes
1% aquarius multitask
1% Spirit shroud
4% tts
Pegasus @ 2005-07-23 22:06
Don't forget that weapons/fists have a base crit on them as well (chance of crit without any modifiers) and the higher your attack rating, the more crit increase (or less crit decrease) you will have, so these factors add a couple of % to the final total as well.
Archawk @ 2005-07-27 14:57
And + 1% from Crat Coffee..
houserocker @ 2005-07-30 12:31
You can use an AI scope for +15%. Get a form of kitty from an adv for another 1%.
djfube @ 2005-07-31 08:13
flurry of blows = 10%
donger @ 2005-08-25 01:34
all in all my 187 MA pres has about 69% crit chance =D
silentslash @ 2005-09-12 11:41
its not all about crit you know... +20 Ar +20 Def
Kamyn @ 2005-09-12 21:58
whats tts? I understood all the other ones.
Courreal @ 2005-09-16 00:48
take the shot, agent nano.
pter666 @ 2005-10-01 18:05
Luna u prolly a noob saying that cause shade t2 doesnt add all def or addalloff +1% crit each shoulder those are very nice and ill take them anytime over t2 shoulders
pter666 @ 2005-10-01 18:06
def modif or off modif its even better -_-
Volkanov @ 2005-12-29 00:43
It's good for MA of a high level. Consider 100 hits. With say MotR u would deal 3200ish extra damage in 100 hits. If u were fighting aliums and u had a goc instead, you would crit 1 more time in 100 hits than normal and so 6k+ damage.
LeoMaster @ 2006-01-05 17:12
Hmm true but place a high lvl Flurry of Blows for 20 secs for an uber +20 critical, plus UVC for +24 add, in criticals from scope and you are already over 70% critical. Paying 125mil twice for 2 more criticals lol at that time might be an overkill but I know many do it still. Meh, if i can critical 60% of the time, hehe mob is usually dead in like 5 secs max hehe in a good solid team, :).
Stehn @ 2006-01-12 07:54
its worth it +def+off +crit = win better than tier shoulders vte sided whatever
Tanjitsu @ 2006-01-17 23:16
+15 Scope
+24 UVC
+2 Globes
+2 Calcs
+1 Helm
+1 Chest
+4 TTS
+1 Sabre
+1 Shroud
+1 Crat Coffee
not including the Flurry + MOR Thats alota Crit chance.

slitheris @ 2006-03-08 19:09
I mig&acute;ht be a little sleepy here... UVC?
nimarq @ 2006-03-18 04:30
best ma crit nano
Kaynos72 @ 2006-05-11 07:17
Selling for 250M on RK1, i just don't get it, it's 1 freaking percent, not 10 !!! I don't get it.
nStop149 @ 2006-05-30 16:24
VTEis better for froob than this^^^^^^^^.
KhimaruRK2 @ 2006-05-31 11:27
someone is selling it for 225m flat on rk2 right now.
Wizardi @ 2006-06-13 04:13
Kaynos: The point is, this is the *ONLY* critchance boosting shoulderpad, which also boosts your chance to hit and evade hits at the same time, this is for someone wanting the absolute best, no matter the price

And nStop149, VTEs are in no way better than this, whether you be a froob or not
Enfsandy @ 2006-06-25 01:58
current price?
alphia @ 2006-06-25 10:48
like 250-300m each on RK1
noir1991 @ 2006-07-16 07:59
dude at higher levels like raids , why would u want VTE ? its freaking 3 more dmg n maybe some added life , but at say 200+ , a MA won't be tanking , an enforcer will , MA r the DPSers , for those who dont play WoW its Damage per second , 1% crit for 2 shoulders is A LOT considering how many times u have to hit enemies like say Beast ? 2% will mean ALOT
Zekeolum @ 2006-11-22 21:34
whats a UVC?

Agarwaen @ 2006-12-24 12:14
Had get my sixt GoC today from Tara. :p
GATIS @ 2007-01-04 16:24
Hahaha, 200mil, i think that only a total idiot can buy this shit for 200m, it not worth it, ill pay 5 mil max for it
killy666 @ 2007-01-05 13:26
it's not 200mil, more 250 mil. and you're prolly the one missing the point of this item and being to quote "total idiot".
nStop149 @ 2007-01-06 12:26
VTEis better for froob than this^^^^^^^^.----------sorry for this msg.....was young and noobish :D so nvm guys :)
Danathos @ 2007-01-09 05:03
lets watch for GATIS, free kill free kill
leite @ 2007-01-09 18:03
rofl @ GATIS I saw many morrons but this guy owns them all
Mohamad @ 2007-02-12 05:50
So if I count well, Barrow of strength is better than this if I use Kyr'ozch Axe.
100 hits with barrow = 1500 dmg
100 hits with GOC = 600-1200 depending on level of the axes
Ok so you lose 50 nano, 5 hp and 3 stamina with barrow...but gain 3 strength and nice line resists.
GOC overated? For a lot of professions/weapons/levels definitely.
And I didn't compare with MOTR! :p
borderline @ 2007-02-15 16:56

On a regular axe advy without outside buffs and too ubah stuff:
3 % min crit chance (without crit reduction)
15% scope
1 % kitty

gives 19% minimum crit chance. 2 GoCs will give you 21% minimum crit chance as well as +20 AAO, which can increase crit chance in itself.

According to AO Mainframe, 200s of fighting with 300 axes, 2000 AR and 19% crit chance + Barrow Strength would give 197 800 points of damage. 200 s of fighting with same axes, 2010 AR and 20% crit gives 198 800 damage. All this against 10 k AC. This is ofc not including def rating and the increased no of hits with extra AR. The difference is not big, but still the GoC comes out on top. Further, if we're talking PvP, critting can be far more important than a little extra damage since duration is very short normally. Getting an extra crit in a vital situation can be a godsend. Not sure how well the Mainframe dmg calc works, but a little observation at least.

Xira @ 2007-03-26 16:56
lets not forget the new dreadloch scopes XD
Flink @ 2007-04-22 07:32
what's the price on rk3 atm?
Pung @ 2007-05-12 05:44
@bordeline, you are absolutely correct. Just calculated this myself, and ofc in pvp goc>mor. but in pvm, especially when you have capped mbs, mor will be better in the long run. as adv with coffie, you can self 25%++, which will make you hit opponent with an unpredictable amount of dmg, rather than flat dmg from mor+bos and other dd stuffs.
GornNova @ 2007-07-26 17:32
sell them quick before 17.5 patch lol :>
new pads ftw
Dancingrage @ 2007-07-27 03:17
New pads coming out in 17.5 patch are gonna own GoC back to the stone age where it belongs, and about damn time. Also some items to make those critscope huggers think twice, a HUD 3 item that flat out owns the RBP for damage...and other nifty things.
GornNova @ 2007-07-27 16:54
these globes are still nice for 120-180 ish pvpers, but definitively useless for all 180+
finally we'll get some goc at "decent" price again.
buttmuffin @ 2007-07-27 21:09
Id rather have AAD than most other things FC can throw at us on pads... ill still use em
kijika @ 2007-08-07 21:39
price check on RK1 lately? pst Nukealogist
Ats @ 2007-08-08 06:37
GOC will still be useable at TL6-7 because the new pen quest pads only go in the right shoulder slot.
Desdishado @ 2007-08-08 17:14
Nice pads :D +10 AAD ftw for fixers etc.

Oh and about the crit chance lol... all j00 MA's go look at the comments on the +24% MA crit nano... several people there have shown how to get over 100% crit chance (PvM ofc)
vkata @ 2007-09-01 16:49
goc's been nerfed by pen pads ;)
Yakobo66 @ 2007-09-28 12:35
not really, pen pad is right shoulder only so wear this on left for 4% crit ^^
houserocker @ 2007-11-05 20:25
Finally nerfed to cheapness and TL4/5 twink status as it was meant :)
Joxer @ 2007-12-01 01:24
its still Adddef and add off in shoulder form...still has a use at 220
Jornado @ 2008-01-18 21:54
not nerfed to cheapness - rk2 as of yesterday morning only 2 on GMS, both at 325 mil. :(
DevilsKnight @ 2008-01-23 15:13
I got one for 180m today. Seems the average these days is around 200m
OmagaDrake @ 2008-07-06 15:19
when you drop it into tradeskills kit, it says used in 1 process, anyone have any ideas?
Pung @ 2008-07-12 23:40
its for Imbued Globe of Clarity.
Alex_Fitz @ 2008-10-01 10:17
I remember long ago someone offered one to me for 20m, and I said that was too much. I later find out.. *hangs himself.*
Shadowsols @ 2008-12-30 05:22
Lal sold a few at 650 each
effinpanda @ 2009-07-03 19:27
HAHA Not Imbued. Lame.
kilafiremage @ 2010-03-23 19:50
i see why these and IGoC's would be useful and all, but seriously around 500m for 2% crit? thats 1b for 4% crit and a few other buffs, id put my money elsewhere. combined mercs anyone?

maybe even get barrow strength/the inner sanctum for more add dmg over this, and roll an agent for tts for 4%.
lime @ 2010-07-05 00:51
Not true. 1% crit can be equated into damage. Shades, for example get around +28 damage/% crit. The number goes even higher for classes with heavy crit modifiers like an MA. Thankfully the MoR does not require you to be wearing it to use it
maren1 @ 2010-12-22 13:14
Combine with a [Nanobot Infusion Device] to make imbued globe (nodrop)
Jawanskelig @ 2011-01-28 00:52
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)
