is the only mob that drops it.
The reason why this shirt is bop because it is not makable from tailor and it looks nice
and it is rare
and also it was a green item that gives 3 intellect in WOW beta
If/When it drops off Fineous Darkvire, it will appear only to the person with the "trash-loot" rights, meaning only the person who gets to loot runecloth etc. will see the shirt as it is white quality.
Also, even though it binds when picked up, there is no warning message when looting.
Yes, dropped for my group about a month ago. As above poster said, the looter in rotation got the shirt, and although I cannot confirm that it didn't bring up a BoP dialog, it would still be preferable if the item invoked a group loot roll, but I suppose the only way this would happen is if they bumped it up to being uncommon, as they did for the TotSC:
However, my opinion is that this shirt actually has more charm (and rarity) by virtue of being white, and I hope it stays that way -- not terribly hard to farm at 70 anyway since Darkvire is right behind Incendius.
I farmed it today with my level 70 Holy Paladin. It was very easy and dropped after 6-7 kills. It does not bring up a BoP warning as already stated.
To make the fight easier, wait 4-5 minutes until he moves down and stands on the middle of the stairs between the 2 golems. If you pull him while walking on the platform or to close to a golem, you will pull 5-10 adds, who all heal each other :(
Just to add this, Athene (greatest paladin in the world) uses this shirt.
I consider myself extremely lucky, as this dropped for my shaman yesterday. My mage has had the Sawbones shirt from the Butcher of Scholomance for almost 2 years now, and I never realized there was another BoP shirt to collect!
The large gate leading to Incendius and the Black Anvil used to be closed until you beat Bael'gar (sort of a Molten Giant at the other end). Tough customer, even at his low level. Now as a Lv 70, if you have the Shadorforge key (easy to solo), you can just waltz past the Anvil to Fineous without aggroing a single mob. Shirt dropped on a shard farm run, didn't even know that it existed. Replaced Cpt. Sander's one :p
This matches the Arena Season 4 Mage Set perfectly ( as an undead female, the central part of the chest, near the stomach, reveals skin/whatever shirt you're wearing ).
I've been farming it solo as a full s3-s4 geared PoM Pyro Mage. Quite easy. Although he does become a toughy if you draw golems and workers as adds.
this shirt looks very good with the druid epic pvp set, along with the armswake cloak, all the colours match :D, youd be the best lookin druid on your server is you had the epic pvp set, this shirt and the cloak i mentioned :P
I got this and it match perfectly with SC set.
So to you out there who goes after looks - then get this^^
For those that don't have this shirt but want something to go with Shadowcraft, buy/craft a Black Swashbuckler's Shirt. Cheap and matches very well.
woo got it yesterday =D a warlock won the roll for it. ^^ looks really cool
To the druid above...the epic pvp looks even better with the onyxia scale cloak ;) THAT matches perfect and its a long cloak (the most important thing for cloaks :P)
it looks great. i've had this shirt for some time now and was curious bout the bop on it. but now i get it :)
It looks great with my sc and black tabard :)
Looks good under the Alliance Rogue/Druid epic PvP set chestpiece. There's normally a few 'holes' in the sides that really didn't look so hot against my pale elf skin, but this shirt compliments the overall purple color of the sets very well.
Still haven't gotten this shirt, can't say I've been trying very hard though. Black Martial Shirt goes awesome with Bloodfang, so there's not much of a point. Would still like to have a BoP shirt just for the hell of it tho...
Myself and another 70 did brd because we wanted to see what it was like and this dropped off one of the bosses. I kept it because it's the only shirt I know of thats a such high level drop, so it's kinda cool.
BRD is a cakewalk to solo at 70, esp if all you're going for is this shirt. If you don't already have your shadowforge key, get it first. The quest is soloable too and will make the trip to Fineous much faster. Once you do...
Hang a left as you zone in and go through the gate. Head towards Bael'gar but turn right when you get to the highway, towards the giant doors and Incendius. You can bypass most of the mobs -including Incendius- even without stealth. Just clear starting with the two fire elementals right after Incendius, a stationary Golem w/ 3 non-elite adds, a patrolling Golem, and by then (6 minutes or so into the instance) Fineous should be walking down towards you away from other mobs so he can be pulled solo. Down him, run out the way you came and reset.
Less than ten minutes per run on my druid (a single Thorns lasted the entire run) and I got my shirt on my third try. GL!
just dropped :D
a member didn't bother to pick it up, i did
Easy farming, but I believe the droprate got nerfed since 2.3. Took me a good 12 + runs to get mine.
you believe it's nerfed based only on your 12+ runs?
ya - ok, man.
I snagged one first time in there and had no idea what it was. Wish I had luck like that more often.
why does this shirt show that it has sockets?
One dropped about two weeks ago for me -- no sockets on it
Got something even better if you're a rogue like me and you have that gap between the arms and the top of your gloves - the Orange Martial shirt is perfect! You get really dark black sleeves, goes great with gladiators and other t3-and-up sets. boo yaa
Ugh 60+ kills to get this shirt. Got the method down to science.
If you know where he is and you have the key, you can get to him and take him down and only have to take down one other mob.
Enter the instance, hang a left, pass the fire patrol, turn right, pass all the 5 man mobs, through the big doors, past the wall decorating fire mobs, past incendius (fight him if you like) and through the last doors to the builder's area with all the golem looking guys. If you've been moving steady the whole time or use Rocket Boots Xtreme (ftw) or whatever speed enhancement you have you should be able to meet the patrolling golem on the third ramp between mobs (there's like 4 ramps total). He's the only guy you gotta kill, he patrols the whole thing. Now, the timing can be different for all this, but by the time you down the patrolling golem Fineous is usually on the 3rd ramp up, just in front of where you killed the pat. Walk PAST HIM to the final ramp, and as he's continuing to walk down the third ramp below you throw a knife, shoot an arrow, shout his name or whatever you gotta do to get him to come fight you on that final ramp. This is the best spot because sometimes he's a d!ck and will run away from you into another mob. If you're at the very top of the ramp with his back to the decline, he'll be too far away to run into any mobs. He heals himself often past 1/2 health, so just stun or whatever you gotta do to take him down. After that just walk out and reset. This run takes 6-7 min. I used my rocket boots almost always at the same spot and that's a 5 minute cooldown, so it's over 5 min for sure this way.
If you're lucky you'll get it before 60 runs, unlike me.
Engineer Prot Warriors ftw.
Hell yah, I got this shirt, best shirt in game.. it should be epic.
Great shirt... or the Greatest shirt..?

What's makes it worth getting?
Bf and I were duoing BRD, and I didn't mean to Ninja loot it. He was okay with it because didn't know that he wanted it. Plus I never got the "Picking this up with bind it to you" msg.
Here it comes...
This should have a +3 Intellect to it?
If you're wearing this shirt, could you please send a picture of it to Allakhazam? I'm sure we'd all love to see what it looks like.
i got this shirt and it had +13 defence on it.
OMFG I WANT SO BADLY!
Either this, or Chief Architect's Monocle.
Phat loot right there
