Everquest - Defiant Gear

           Defiant Gear is exceptionally powerful gear that was added into Everquest at sometime around the SoF expansion from what I remember. But when it was added doesn't really matter, does it? The point of this page is to give you a complete run down of Defiant Gear and to provide you with information about this gear. First let me start by saying that Defiant Gear is extremely good gear, probably the best in slot for all classes until about level 65.

           At 65 there is some Attunable gear you can get that replaces some of the Defiant Gear but for the most part the Defiant Gear is still much, much better than most that is available at this level. When leveling up you will find tons of Defiant Gear from mobs of all kinds. There are very few mobs in the game that don't have a chance to drop any pieces of Defiant Gear at all, actually the only zone I have found where no Defiant drops is PoHate. Considering I've wrote guides for over 200 zones and PoHate is the only zone I have found to drop no Defiant Gear; it makes it pretty safe to say it drops everywhere.

           Now depending on the level of the mob will determine what type of Defiant Gear they drop. Each piece of Defiant Gear has a required level and a recommended level on it, usually the mobs in this level range will be the ones to drop that type of Defiant Gear. If you kill a mob close to either end of the level ranges though they can drop two different types of gear. For example you can get Intricate and Elaborate gear from the same mobs.

           Anyway, now that you know all about Defiant Gear dropping from mobs it's time to get into the information about selling it. Intricate Defiant Gear will be the best selling Defiant Gear on all servers. I've had characters on about 6 or 7 different servers and this type of defiant was always the best selling. The reason I have found for this is because this Defiant Gear is the best gear you can get in the range of where players stop with alts to solo Lady Vox and Lord Nagafen. I can usually sell pieces of defiant for about 2 - 5k each in this range.

           As for individual pieces of Defiant Gear, I have found Chest pieces to sell the best followed by Legs and then sleeves. Every other piece just kind of fits in behind these. As far as the Defiant Weapons go they normally sell well up until you hit Intricate and then past that they prices of them begin to deteriorate quickly. Honestly you'll be lucky to even sell Elaborate and above Defiant Weapons.

           Below is a list of all the different types of Defiant Gear that you will find when Farming or Leveling up, whatever you're doing. I provided a distinguishable picture from each set of gear to really just make it easier on the eyes. Also under each set of Defiant Gear I provide you with a little bit of information when it comes to selling the pieces of that gear in The Bazaar. I've leveled 5 or 6 characters all on different servers so I am pretty familiar with Defiant Gear and how much it sells for on almost all servers. Although the prices are always fluctuating, you will still want to check before you price the items, the prices I provide are more for a rough round-about price that you can expect.

List of Defiant Gear:

Crude Defiant Chain SleevesCrude Defiant Gear (Recommended level of 10. No required level.)

           Each piece of Crude Defiant Gear usually sells for about 25 to 100pp each. It's very expensive for low level players looking to gear up, the prices of the gear pretty much imply that the only people buying it are people looking to level twinks. Since you blow through the Crude Defiant levels so quick I save any of this gear that I get and sell it. I'd much rather have the couple hundred plat than a crappy piece of gear for a dozen or so levels.

Simple Defiant BreastplateSimple Defiant Gear (Required level of 5. Recommended level of 20.)

           Much like Crude Defiant Gear, Simple Defiant Gear sells on average for about 25 to 150pp. It is once again insanely expensive for lower level players looking to gear up. So, once again what I recommend you do is hold onto any of this gear that you find and sell it in The Bazaar. The couple hundred plat will benefit you much more than a mediocre piece of gear will for a few levels.

Rough Defiant BreastplateRough Defiant Gear (Required level of 15. Recommended level of 30.)

           Rough Defiant Gear actually is the first set of Defiant that is reasonably priced for your level. I normally see each piece going for 50 to 150pp each which is about the same as the Simple Defiant Gear, just this is much better. The only pieces of Rough Defiant that are ever expensive are the chest pieces, leggings and sometimes sleeves. If you are a Free to Play player and are constantly getting your butt handed to you it might be worth it to pick up a few of these in The Bazaar if they're cheap to fill in the slots where you have nothing equipped.

Ornate Defiant Chain SleevesOrnate Defiant Gear (Required level of 26. Recommended level of 40.)

           Ornate Defiant Gear takes a major jump in price compared to the Rough Defiant Gear previous to it. Each piece of Ornate will go for 125/200 - 450pp depending on your server. The reason it goes up in price here is because this is the level range in which most people start looking for some gear so they don't die so much in the harder zones that start coming up. The chest, sleeves and leggings of the Ornate Defiant Gear will all sell for the most.

           For that reason I recommend you hold onto some of the visible pieces (chest, leggings, sleeves) and try to sell them in The Bazaar if you have a Gold Membership. Other pieces like the bracers, charm, gloves, boots, helm and weapons you can feel free to equip as they aren't really worth trying to sell as they are the ones that go for the least amount of plat.

Flawed Defiant Chain BootsFlawed Defiant Gear (Required level of 37. Recommended level of 50.)

           Flawed Defiant takes another big price jump and starts going for 150 - 750 per piece depending on what piece it is. As aformentioned with the previous defiant sets I recommend you hold onto the chest, sleeves and leggings to try and sell while you just equip the other pieces that you find. Doing it like this will give you good enough gear to level extremely fast and a lot more plat than you could get by not doing this.

           If you do not have a Gold Membership then you will be unable to run a trader and sell anything. I recommend you hold onto the items until you do become a subscriber or just equip them if you don't think you're ever going to purchase a subscribtion.

Intricate Defiant Chain LeggingsIntricate Defiant Gear (Required level of 48. Recommended level of 60.)

           Intricate Defiant Gear is the most expensive set of Defiant Gear that players can buy. The reason for this is because Intricate Defiant Gear is the best gear players can use that specifically make alts for farming Lord Nagafen and Lady Vox. These two raid bosses can not be attacked by anyone whom is over the level of 52 which makes it extremely important that the people farming this boss have the absolute best possible gear they can for their level. Since there are always new people wanting to try this the prices of Intricate Defiant Gear are through the roof of almost all servers.

           Each piece of Intricate Defiant Gear will usually cost the player 500 - 2000pp, sometimes even more if it is a piece like the Breastplate or Leggings. I actually don't recommend you use any of the Intricate Defiant Gear and you sell every piece you find. Selling this gear will make you an insane amount of money and you level through this level range so quickly you won't even notice a difference without the gear.

Elaborate Defiant Chain CoifElaborate Defiant Gear (Required level of 59. Recommended level of 70.)

           Despite it being a higher level than the Intricate Defiant Gear and being better in everyway, Elaborate Defiant Gear sells for about as much as Flawed Defiant does. As I mentioned with the Intricate Gear; that was the best selling Defiant you will come across. The only other two sets after it (Elaborate and Elegant) don't even come close to being as profitable. Which is good when it comes to gearing up, ~10k will get you a full set of Elaborate Defiant and Elegant Defiant Gear.

           But when you find extra pieces of this gear while either farming or leveling it kinda blows as you won't net that huge of a profit from them. A couple hundred pp per piece is nice but once this gear becomes a common drop for you a couple hundred plat is pretty much nothing. The chest, leggings and sleeve pieces of gear are the ones that will net you a pretty nice income but regardless they still require a Gold Membership if you plan to sell them in The Bazaar.

Elegant Defiant BowElegant Defiant Gear (Required level of 70. Recommended level of 80.)

           Despite it being a higher level than the Intricate Defiant Gear and being better in everyway, Elaborate Defiant Gear sells for about as much as Flawed Defiant does. As I mentioned with the Intricate Gear; that was the best selling Defiant you will come across. The only other two sets after it (Elaborate and Elegant) don't even come close to being as profitable. Which is good when it comes to gearing up, ~10k will get you a full set of Elaborate Defiant and Elegant Defiant Gear.
