this drops from the Gartua the Doorkeeper in Tot3W
imo @ 2005-02-01 18:51
does this only drop from the lvl65 Gartua? the others dont seem to have it.
Epeiox @ 2005-02-18 19:06
I think you may be confusing him with the spiders. Gartua is a named mob, a trox, guarding the chamber of Aztur in ToTW. Very rare drop though
Agat @ 2005-03-20 22:53
Confirmed drop from lvl62 Gartua the Doorkeeper
Pagodin @ 2005-04-03 16:49
confirmed drop from lvl64 Gartua the Doorkeeper
Pegasus @ 2005-08-14 23:22
funny thing is, i got this first drop on my enf and first drop on my agent. i've never seen his corpse without this on it :P
pter666 @ 2005-09-11 01:27
i used to always find one when someone needed in my teams when i played with my keeper
t3rm1ght @ 2005-11-03 20:50
just get a high team level, itll drop hardcore.
patron1 @ 2005-11-29 12:33
So you have a better drop-chance if you're in team, than solo?
gdb2222 @ 2005-12-04 13:34
I've killed Gartua loads of times - mostly team - and never seen this item.
Does the level of the team or solo player really influence the drop rate?

johammer @ 2005-12-07 21:21
Team lvl affecting drops is one of the biggest myths still (unfortunately) floating around
Comi @ 2005-12-10 03:22
If you solo things in totw it appears to be that rare drops drop more. Got this on 3rd try when soloing doorkeeper. lvl 40ish MA
Zuoxi @ 2006-02-06 21:41
Confirmed drop on Level 63 Gartua, but it was ninjaed away from me...
Whitey @ 2006-03-11 20:28
i managed to get this while camping GoT. All the times i've camped doorkeeper, it never drops, but as soon as i'm only 'passing by' it drops. Funny old world :P
AlphaCenta @ 2006-05-13 18:25
Team level, nor soloing affects your drops. I know that, because ARKs, BugHunters etc. can look into the "inventory" of a mob (that is, what it drops when it gets killed). If they can see what is in it, I don't think that the drops it has got will change by your team level or solo-age.

AKA: Just plain luck for the normal player!
intrus @ 2006-06-12 05:19
this imp dont worth it for me it squiz the 2he faded cluster that go in waist and this imp dont have a 2he modifier (for a normal keeper) maybe worth it for enfos... is this implant usable? like notum splice by NT?
intrus @ 2006-06-12 05:23
attack skill martial arts???
charmo @ 2006-06-19 18:11
its not unusuable intrus. Only way to buff Str from waist.
Gaiaterra @ 2006-11-20 16:12
Used it before on my keeper (opi), and it rocked, Used it till I got a viable symb to rep it.

Used it on almost all my chars, even my fixer.

Now camping it for my enfo. But no luck atm.

Btw, its' very nice for opi people in general, as it buffs str and stam, which are always useful for tier or other armor.
jokeUsa @ 2006-11-24 19:57
Finally! Week of camping and i got it.
wintypes @ 2007-07-22 00:12
got it by luck on my lowbie doc. Nice for twinking, it gives the same stamina buff as a ql 100 imp, but has only the reqs of a ql 80 one :D
Saves you one step of laddering.
Salanine @ 2007-09-13 20:49
hmm i must be really lucky cuz ive gotten it first try on my agent and enfo (53 agent 51 enfo)
bronkoclar @ 2008-07-10 13:59
me too, first drop with fixer lvl 50 :)))
Pudz66 @ 2008-08-13 05:19
i got this and GTA on the first kills with my keeper xD
jonjonz @ 2008-11-17 01:08
My enforcer must have killed Gartua 70-80 times with no drop, then while running my new NT through the temple, it drops on her first kill of Gartua just a few weeks ago.

These posts are a wonderful example of how media can sometimes present things in a way that warps reality. The reality is that this is a fairly rare drop, but since it is human nature for the lucky ones to want to post about thier good fortune, the forum thread then paints a picture where practically everyone gets the drop. What you don't see are posts from the other 99% that never saw it drop no matter how long they camped it.

Blindsword @ 2008-11-24 11:17
@ johammer's Team lvl affecting drops is one of the biggest myths still (unfortunately) floating around.

I agree, the only thing a team effects on rare drops is that either
(A) someone is going to ninja it, and you will have kill that mob another 60 times just to have another chance at it.
(B) you have to roll for the item and you now have a 1 in 6 chance that if you even see it that you will get it. And odds are it will then end up in the hands of a noob NT who keeps killing himself because he still doesn't know the difference between AoE nukes and standard nukes, and will most likely end up just deleting this a month later for inventory space.
glad that last one never happened to me *murmurs under breath* dang noob
ownedbyma @ 2008-12-20 01:29
camping it...won't drop! like 70 kills RRHh 0_o''

droped onces in team, but a "funny" ninja looter took it away from me...
Guarenas @ 2009-07-10 12:57
I still dont understand why everyone wants this item so badly. It is really not that good.

Oke good item to show to other people but thats all. For people that camp it 60 times plz lvl further up and equip ql 150/200 in no time.
Archawk @ 2009-09-13 15:16
@guarenas: The only way to buff str on waist slot is to use this imp. So it is even more important on higher levels when you need to buff up str for few more points to get that endgame armor/symb on...
agpecko @ 2009-10-22 02:44
@Guarenas: could be camping it for an alt? maybe a certain level locked one?
kilafiremage @ 2010-01-15 09:43
confirmed drop on this a few weeks ago. saw someone loot, but idc there are better waist imps. like for instance, anyone who uses shotty/piercing/anything in the waist other than max hp/stam.

4 bm aint worth it
deanarthur @ 2010-01-29 18:35
actually the add to strength makes this very nice and is a good piece for some low level twinks. Just make sure you grab it fast because as I was waiting for my low level alt to get there and pick it up it disappeared within 4 minutes :(
uberdose @ 2010-02-08 04:21
An org mate looted this a few days ago on his first try while I lost track of how many hours I spent trying to get it.
uberdose @ 2010-03-19 11:12
Finally got it. 03/19/2010 4:45am.
Kir @ 2010-04-03 19:59
Finally got it. 3th april 2010 around 1:40 pm. It was approximately my 45th kill of Garty.
hoserz @ 2010-09-21 21:21
on a lvl 50 + maybe not that great and maybe great for end game or for that lil str u may need, but on a lvl 24 that dont need 2he .... uber !! same goes for nems eye :)
cocodog13 @ 2010-10-04 04:10
AlphaCenta. you are saying then that the loot from a mob is decided when it spawns then? not when it dies. wierd but interesting to know =D
Makamae @ 2011-02-02 02:27
Took 70ish kills to get for my 24 enfo +200 acs and 150 hp ftw
deanarthur @ 2011-04-05 17:13
I agree 100% with hoserz - maybe great for end game or for that lil str u may need, but on a lvl 24 that dont need 2he .... UBER !! same goes for nems eye :) Happy Hunting.
tazerboy @ 2011-07-10 20:28
i saw it drop once but smene held lot until it rotted
aocat @ 2011-09-02 04:42
I must have killed Gart at least 30+ times for this and still nothing... I must be really unlucky
jokeUsa @ 2013-03-17 02:34
30 times? dont make me laugh, this takes about 2 weeks to drop, 3~ hours a day worth of farming.
Farmed on my froob agent eons ago, never rly used but it brings up memories ;)
aocat @ 2015-04-22 08:16
Apparently with the release of 18.7, this received a somewhat higher drop rate, along with Skull of the Ancient. Have fun :)
