Hideously bad armor for a plate chestpiece! If you're still in green lvl 32 mail breastplate, it might be an upgrade - statwise!
Edit: Aye it looks great, especially on females. Doesn't take away the fact that it's not much of an upgrade from any late 30s green mail you might wear. There are several better breastplates at lvl 40. See the
here, Saltstone is the worst of the lot.
In case anyone is curious,
is what the entire set looks like.
Click the "View in 3D option" under the little arrow and select the appropriate race you wish to view it in.
Actually looks pretty good for a green set. :P
hot on females
If you are looking for this skin to transmogrify, try with
Carapace of Anub'shiah
from Ring of Law in BRD.
The Saltstone Surcoat appears to have an absurdly low drop rate for a level 40 green item - in fact, it's all but nonexistent from what I can tell. I started off in Dire Maul but no Saltstone items dropped there after several clears, so I followed advice posted on Wowhead and went to the Admiral's Den instead. There are 22 or so
in the cave. There must be a minimum population limit because the faster you kill them the faster they spawn, so you never have to stop looting. At level 85 you can easily clear the place in under 2 minutes, including the multiple instant respawns. I looted roughly 13,600 ogres and ended up with 2 each of the head, shoulders, and belt, 3 wrists and boots, 4 pants and shields, and 5 gloves - but the chest never dropped. For people who don't have infinite time and/or patience, the
Carapace of Anub'shiah
may be the only way to complete this set.
Edit: Updated some of the numbers after further looting.
Looted this from a mob in Thousand Needles
DO NOT VENDOR
this item it has a
market value i sold it for
Looking at the Undermine Journal i could have got 3000 gold but i did'nt want to get greedy :P
However i'd recommend selling this for Transmog or keeping it for one self its a very nice transmog for a female.
In the 2nd screenshot, what are those shoulders?
are very good Gold Makers if you give them a chance. At first I was just interested in collecting a set of Saltstone, but after getting the full set inside of 2 hours, thought this will net some serious coin. Just a heads up that 4 pieces of Saltstone net me 5k. Almost all the greens these Ogres drop are mildly to very rare to find on your Auction House which makes them valuable.
I have a short youtube Vid that shows which route is most efficient and will net you the quickest farming, thus highest gold profit.
It just dropped for our party in Razorfen Downs, and I got it for transmog on my warrior.
But it appeared to be bound when picked up to my druid... didn't look at the warning, given there must have been one...
So i decided to go bug the den orges for a few hours. To my surprise i got 2 green drops. Neither were saltstone.
Took me about an hour of farming Den Whompers before i got the Saltstone chest. From what I have seen and heard I was very lucky, don't pass up this piece for less than 2k
I have looked and looked for shoulders I felt looked good in style, and colormatch for this Saltstone set.
seemed to fit my requirements. IDK wut you think?
After deciding to try again after a small week break from farming den whompers I went to go play with them again, and after about my third run around in the cave the saltstone surcoat dropped surprisingly. I did make about 5k off the other greens I got from them, so even though it's boring and tedious, they do seem somewhat well worth the effort if you're after any mogs and/or want to make a little side money.
Looks like the Admiral's Cave got a massive nerfbat
still relevant. i use the cave in thousand needles to mog farm. have only gotten one of the chest pieces to drop, but 2 of the bracers and a couple of others to drop. they do sell pretty high, worst part is i have them on a low pop server so it takes a while to sell them.
Looking at the list of mobs that drop this item in Dire Maul, you can essentially just understand that "Any mob in Dire Maul could possibly drop this item". It may not be absolutely true, but it's GENERALLY true. So just clear Dire Maul and loot every mob if you're farming for this.
