After that I saw an Elf Minstrel in Freeport in a full set of bluish green plate gear and set out to find out what it was. It turned out to be Cold Steel armor which was made non bard equippable after the release of Frontiers. I was out of luck there but I heard a rumor of a dark green set of plate armor that bards could use called Forestal armor. So I set out to find it. It was supposedly high 20s level gear and dropped in forested areas. I scoured the internet for information on where to find it. I found claims of it dropping from either dark wood goblins or mossmouth goblins. Both camps seemed level appropriate so I set out to do some farming. Hours upon hours were spent decimating a seemingly never ending horde of tiny green creatures. To no avail. I never did find a single piece of Forestal gear.
But I loved the hunt.
