      Does anyone know where the Thunderbug's Bracers are dropped? I can't find them on any of the guild traders and I'm not sure they even exist.

          Thunderbug's Girdle dropped from Gwaeregil (Tomb of the Apostates), Thunderbug's Sabatons and Thunderbug Carapace Boots of Clomping dropped from Arrai (Shael Ruins), and Thunderbug's Ring dropped from a random coldharbour spawn while in Malabal Tor. Still looking around for more.

            Gwaeregil, Tomb of the Apostates, Malabal Tor actually drops the unique Dead Man's Ring of Salvation "This ring is, gold in color, but color only." Not sure where unique Thunderbug Ammy is.
