The Guardian of Tomorrow in the Temple of the three winds drops it sometime
Vopsd @ 2003-05-23 19:09
Who knows what chanse to drop of this thing? i killed about 25-30 GoT and nothing :-(
thegreatbear @ 2003-05-28 16:44
i have seen the drop rate on this vary from 1/6 to 1/10. Also your team lvl has a little something to do with its drop rate aswell, the higher the better!
fuman @ 2003-11-27 16:37
whats better for a lvl 41 enforcer assualt class tank armour with absorb or this?
Carlito @ 2003-12-25 09:37
Both. Wear this, and just keep the assault class tank in your inv for the absorb. Get the withered flesh for the absorb too.
Armslave @ 2004-02-22 17:32
If the Guardian is level 70+ he will drop the GTA, I've been killing him off and on for a few days and got GTA on my MP now.
darkhell @ 2004-03-27 06:17
For me its quite stupid camp GoT for this armor... I just solo it 4 or 5 times with my new chars and if he drops the GTA well its fine, and if it dont drop it... exarch robe. 420 all acs -1% nano cost and a little health. Why bother camping got for hours and hours when you can EASILY have an exarch robe? :-P
daburah @ 2004-04-07 15:12
^ Because exarch robe is fugly? Thats what it comes down to for most people, GTA looks very nice.
tsujigiri @ 2004-06-16 19:47
Neither GoT's level nor your team level affect the droprate: if gotten it off level 67 GoTs and team level only affects your attack rating (i.e. whether you hit and whether you crit).
Lihakuula @ 2005-02-25 21:22
excuse me for being a dork, but I still see no point in camping for hours for this item. it's "ok" but not "SUPER"...
redliner @ 2005-02-28 18:34
It isn't uber, far from it.

I'm camping it for my 25 trader twink as we speak. I will miss the nano cost reduce and root resistance on the exarch, but hey.. GTA looks nize :)
Bombo @ 2005-04-09 10:46
Well me and my few friends were killing the GOT and we killed it about 4 times we got 4 Armours once we got 2 at once and once got none. I think we were really REALLY lucky or something.
asche @ 2005-05-13 05:36
About gta... its worth _some_ camping, the reqs are just so low considering the ac's. I took it even to my engineer alt, five kills was enough. Wouldn't camp days however, it aint that good.

kteke @ 2005-06-13 14:38
the feeling that drive people to get is, to have an item that a few of community has. everyone has exarc robe, but this. this is different
Oswood @ 2005-07-08 01:51
In some way I like that it's hard to get. If it was too easy we all should wear one like we do with Exarch Robe at that level.

About fr00bs, I like them! I was one just some months ago but went into a paying player when I got hooked.
Pegasus @ 2005-10-05 21:06
it's a status item. or a veblen good for those of you that are into economics ;P
cyde @ 2006-01-02 12:48
First time in totw with my enforcer, wandered down to GoT and found the GTA on an abandoned corpse. (_not_ kidding) Pity you guys who camp it for hours.
Jippo @ 2006-01-10 13:20
wow! That is nice, Cyde! (if true...) The GTA on my Keeper lasts lvl100, then I must to do other Armors. Crap! Ely Hecks hit thru this armor :(
Ofex @ 2006-01-24 05:14
only soldiers,enfs,keepers,agents (kinda depends if u can get pellise), fixers (maybe)the rest can get better stuff soon, cheaply. of course this is nice for twinks under 20 (ex robe would be better since it wouldnt be OE) and also i wouldnt reccomend camping much for this. if u spend more than 3 hrs just move on with ex robe in 20-40 lvls u can get albrecht (or backback, veil of revoked, reanimators, SwS etc.)
Shiare @ 2006-04-02 11:09
The problem with trying to solo GOT is that there is always at least 2 or more groups or solo'ers doing the same thing. So You really ain't soloing him, plus you have to fight for the loot right by hopefully doing the most damage. It's pretty ridiculous at how everytime I see level 60 twinked out MP's, Engi's and Enfo's sitting in the corner of GOT's room waiting on the respawn. So as he spawn's, they jump up and go to work. Most teams don't get the chance to fight him for the loot because of this. So it's a waste to go through all that trouble just for an extra 100 AC and the look isn't as important as survival to me.
Whitey @ 2006-05-09 17:26
Whats the lowest level this has been gotten into? i've seen a level 20 in GTA but can it be done lower than this? and also, Is there a tank armour that drops from formans that is better than this? thanks
Whitey @ 2006-05-19 13:02
Ignore my question on the 'better tank from formans'.. only that absorb on it is good to have as a backup
noir1991 @ 2006-07-11 16:27
good for 30-70ish.. after that your better off with an albrecht/overtuned/veil
LordDrathu @ 2006-08-02 12:13
I just went to totw with a friend of mines. It was my first time in totw and my friend said lets go kill Got to get a gcb. Fair enough, so we went, and we killed him (friend did most of the work, I was lower 20's at the time). He looted the corpse and said "omg, you know what just dropped?". He had the sl agent cape, and I'm a froob, so he let me have it. He tried to describe how rare it was and how sought after it was. I guess I just got lucky. I got some gta in my first encounter of Got, and I wouldn't have it any other way. : )
rattjamann @ 2006-10-11 17:44
unless ur makin a twink, this is basicly useless.. by the time u have it u have wasted waay too much time ;)
Gaiaterra @ 2006-11-20 16:09
Trying to camp keeper's vitality for my little enfo, I once saw a 69 GoT all alone. Decided to give it a try, and it dropped. Lucky too it seems, unlike iwth KV -_-

First char of mine to have it, 5 or 6 times I see it drop. I usually prefer exarch robe, but frankly, the looks of GTA rock :D
Shadow.ik @ 2006-12-16 18:18
My friend camped GoT for 130 times till GTA he have it on his lvl 25 Apperitince Keeper :P
Soljaz @ 2007-01-13 05:03
This isnt worth it really... although i still refuse to get outta ToTw without ti on my alts :P :D <3 nerfplx. hai. bai. wewt. <33
Soljaz @ 2007-01-13 05:04
Shadow.ik @ 2006-12-16 18:18

My friend camped GoT for 130 times till GTA he have it on his lvl 25 Apperitince Keeper :P

Is the keeper Clansupport by any chance? :P
Doomeater @ 2007-01-18 23:35
Not kidding right now, but I saw L14 traders walk with this. Gingerman (RK2) for example... and he's fr00b even :)
UoD @ 2007-01-23 01:49
I've seen a level 10 Atrox Trader with GTA equipped. "Slugpumper", RK1.
Soljaz @ 2007-02-22 01:31
Just got GTA on my agent twink today even though i have pelisse ;P
fly @ 2007-03-22 16:20
Actually, I recently read on another site that a lvl5 had GTA on...but no real proof. I know i have it on my 15 enfo.
playaslaya @ 2007-03-23 19:18
lol on my engi i charged 2.5mil for the looting rights for this thinking i wasn't gonna find it my team loved me after 4 kills lol 3 gta drops out of 4 kills that was crazy and the teams after i left lol had shit luck i was laughing my ass off but i maded 5mil and kept one of the gta for mt self PlayaEngi is my engi's name has every item from totw even some aren't usefull just advertise when offering services like my engi can self equip a stygian easy and still has enough to self cast a lvl 118 bot ^^ yeah yeah its a SL and i could do better but he was really a cheaply maded twink lol not more then 3 mill went into his twinking and that includes buying the nanos lol
playaslaya @ 2007-03-23 19:23
i had this armor on my enforcer till 70 then switched over to a Albrecht Heavy Tank Armor ql 200 and then at 100 i twinked my enforcer into a Black Clan Heavy Tank Armor
Sebinox @ 2007-03-31 01:07
Playaslaya does your engi have Skull of the ancient :P
lorddredd @ 2007-04-10 06:52
Hehe, cool, Slugpumper got noticed. He's one of my little twinks and yes he has GTA on at lvl 10. I have two posts on this thread in the forums about how I did it.
First one is how I did it on a lvl 12, then after I got a couple more ideas- one on how I did it at lvl 10. Look for the posts by "Dredd". It may not be wise to give away my setup :), but if anyone's interested here's Slugpumper's equipment.
The armor's kind of all over the map, and I'm not sure it's finalized but it's not a bad look :). Yes, the GTA is horribly OE without all the str/stam implants in, but even at 50% it's still got 260 ACs across the board and 20 health bonus, better than most of what you can get on at lvl 10. He was mostly a twink exercise, but still quite effective at towers and pvp (and starting conversations). Like some people have said, GTA is largely about status. The intimidation factor of GTA and a CAS helmet at lvl 10 is hard to match, but it's really the things like the temple shoulder pads, TIM scope and Viral compiler that make a significant difference in pvp at this level.
sander1 @ 2007-04-19 21:25
had this on at lvl 6:)
lakehead @ 2007-04-26 01:18
GTA at level 6...Wow, that's really impressive! I'm always extremely impressed by totally unsupported, undocumented random claims of greatness.

That's kind of like Playaslaya- QL200 Albrecht at lvl 70 (req. 576 stam, 526 Str). Really impressive! I did some quick calculations with a skill emulator, and assuming- Str/Stam maxed, IC, Behemoth, Ability boost, QL200 implants (I doubt it- but for the sake of argument..) all enhance DNA, Mountaineer and Atrox primary Genome perks, full set of QL 200 Nova Dillon Armor (I also doubt it, 511- Sense req. but whatever..) Novictum Ring, you come out at 485 str, 458 stam. That's almost a hundred short, and that's assuming a number of impossible/unlikely feats. That's what makes this type of claim even more impressive. And still more impressive seeing guys on the Albrecht page, posting about trying to get on QL200 at lvl 116. Obviously they're noobs who don't know the techniques of Playaslaya who did it at lvl 70...
/sarcasm off
If these two posts are true, it would be quite a feat of twinking, but are completely meaningless as it is. At least Lorddredd explained a little of how he got GTA at lvl 10...

By the way- I got Black Clan Tank on at lvl 1. Is every one so impressed... Gimme a break....
Thebestidea @ 2007-05-13 04:40
One time I saw this just sitting on the unattended corpse of the GoT. I was only running down to quick grab a GCB and I got killed before I could grab anything off of the corpse.... I was banging my head against the monitor for a few minutes after that.... SO close to a free GTA. Id like to meet the person who just left it there too. uhhh man.
Deathtank38 @ 2007-05-27 20:56
i got a free gta once, a MA killed and didnt want, i also just long on. my second enf (twinked now) got on his second try at lvl 30ish
grid.docult @ 2007-06-18 21:51
Level 7 Doc on RK1 got this on. Ironcircle his name was.
Gurudee @ 2007-06-21 06:02
Confirmed. Ironcircle is a FREAK.
As far the 'had it on at level 6'...
*cough* bullshit *cough*
jonjonz @ 2007-06-24 02:22
I bet 99.9 percent of these are empty boasts by trolls. Any fool can create an account here and spout lies all day long with nothing to stop them.
jonjonz @ 2007-06-24 02:23
I will concur that GOT is almost always camped by groups of 60s.
Ilikebunnies @ 2007-07-24 01:59
I've seen GOT drop 2 of these at once.. when someone else was camping him, and I didn't need any... I have no idea if they looted a 3rd one. :o
DeepThroat @ 2007-08-14 13:10
camped an 1-2 hours for it i believe and killed the got about 9-10 times to get it. drop rates may vary, our team lvl was also 5 but i believe that has nothing to do with the drop
playaslaya @ 2007-09-20 09:00
well i seen it on a lvl 4 in bore forget its name but it was it lol also saw ironcircle ingame and he has it on cuz the template of gta is like a heavy tank armor and has the like shoulder pad like coverings which can't be copied cuz the nearest ql for heavy armor is like 140+ lol that have shoulder plates on it :D
Martialenfo @ 2007-10-18 21:09
Ironcircle did get it on at lvl 7, and i dont know what you mean by "FREAK" Gurudee, but tbh it is possible to do it at lvl 5 from my calcs but maybe even lvl 4 (thats on a trox doc)
Jornado @ 2007-10-21 09:32
Whitey @ 2006-05-09 17:26

Whats the lowest level this has been gotten into? i've seen a level 20 in GTA but can it be done lower than this? and also, Is there a tank armour that drops from formans that is better than this? thanks

yeah to confirm i know for sure that this has been done at level 7 on a trox doc, same guy who did cure for baldness at level 1. want to see this at lvl this point, its gotta be possible lol.
Ofab @ 2007-12-24 18:21
Get Perfected Alien Tank on a 60 alr... This sucks

Exarch > This
Zaymeta @ 2008-01-02 08:54
Got it on my MA now. Third or fourth kill. Also dropped on first kill earlier when I was in a team.
myr3n @ 2008-05-12 18:06
better one from foreman? LOOOOL!!!!! that tank sucks.. got a good absorb.. but not that good to use.. this is way better.
Lazy @ 2008-05-24 16:29
dropped off a lvl 67 GOT first try
remember @ 2008-11-10 17:22
why don't just buy a normal tank armor?
Ilikedagunz @ 2008-12-04 18:48
Doomeater @ 2007-01-18 23:35

Not kidding right now, but I saw L14 traders walk with this. Gingerman (RK2) for example... and he's fr00b even :)

Just got it on my 14 froob trox doc. "Gunzagent" on rk1
Phiitrox @ 2008-12-30 09:53
it is possible to get this on at lvl 1. Let's do some to Totw behind a twink who kill's GoT and then loot the GTA ---> put it into Social XP
had to post this...sry...was bored ^^
deanarthur @ 2009-04-14 18:59
Well I have 27 G.T.A'S IN RK2. I decided that all of my toons will have one before they pass lvl60. I believe drop rate is 1 in 6. If you are sure you killed 6 in a row and it doesn't drop I would recommend coming back at a later date. Most of my G.T.A's were found in a couple of kills. I often log my guys in the morning before going to work and bang voila another one. I wear them in social mostly just for the look. And I can support this. I would recommend having the person who needs it attack 1st.
SpACatta @ 2009-07-12 23:12
"If you are sure you killed 6 in a row and it doesn't drop I would recommend coming back at a later date."

You only further prove the fact that people really need to take Statistics classes before they get on the internet.
deanarthur @ 2009-09-22 22:39
Well I'm up to 41 GTA's in RK1, RK2 and RK3. and I never seen more than 1 on a dead GOT and never seen it drop more than once in 6 kills. So for you guys that are getting 3 in 4 kills and more than 1 on a corpse, the only thing I can say is WOW. you really are full of S#$%. :)
deanarthur @ 2010-03-15 18:20
For slow people like SpACatta. drop rate is 1 in 6 almost all the time but for some reason it has happened while farming over 50 GTA's twice that it did not drop. I have confirmed that it may drop twice in a row so I appologize to post above for not believing. I have collected 2 in a row twice since last post. It doesn't matter what level Got is for GTA to drop. Good Hunting.
Kir @ 2010-04-03 01:40
"If you are sure you killed 6 in a row and it doesn't drop I would recommend coming back at a later date."
Do you claim that if I am out of luck, then I should take a break from the game and come back later so that my luck bar is filled up to its fullness again? ;) About statistics: if droprate is, say, 15%, then you don't get this every 6 kill regulary, you could get it after 1 kill or after 1000 kills. Yes, there is a small chance of getting it after 1000 kill, theoretically. But then you would probably have to get it 100 times in a row, otherwise the Universe would die of chaos :(

Btw. I got my GTA after I killed GoT TWENTY FOUR times ;O And I committed those kills in a row, meaning no one ODed me in the meantime. I spent non-stop 9 hours doing that but it's the first time I actually saw it on a toon (on my doc now:p) and it truly shocked me, it's so beautiful ;)... And I'm happy about it so it was worth camping 9 hours. Now I can brag about it heh. I'm currently camping Gartua for KV and I'll never look at ToTW again hopefully :p

PS. Before getting GTA I spent 6 hours camping Lien for 6 Memory Loops, it sure was a long day.

Good luck and have fun.
SpACatta @ 2011-04-24 05:41
Slow? How do you figure? I'm not the one who has no understanding of basic Statistics.
tazerboy @ 2011-07-10 20:24
love this good thru formans for froobs
Kuingar @ 2011-10-22 16:47
In all fairness, this isn't good for the majority of the levels; there are small gaps where tanks and twinks want it; level 1-20, level 30-50 and the rest is cause it looks good.
kilafiremage @ 2015-06-26 08:31
most people don't take into account the value of AC at lower levels for pvp, where the damage range of weapons is so damn high compared to the actual AC one can muster (most forgo strength and stamina for max health and AR, or stamina and agility for evade/dodge when finalizing implants). If you can get this non-oe selfed at 25, and your other armor requires str/stamina (CAS, Rhinoman, Miy's tank) and is up to par, you will definitely see a drastic increase in survivability (compared to a setup which lacks base abilities in implants, using exarch robe and carbonum armor).
