Carapace SnakeSkin
G.E. Price 933 1401
Where to find Level 52 Cockroach Soldier (non-aggressive) Level 60 Snake
Level 35 Snake (venomous, requires the completion of Cabin Fever)
Level 80/109/139 Swamp snake from two dangerous minigames
Head 2 carapace
33 craft
5 snakeskin
48 craft
Torso 3 carapace
35 craft
15 snakeskin
53 craft
Legs 2 carapace
34 craft
12 snakeskin
51 craft
Hands 1 carapace
30 craft
8 snakeskin
47 craft
Feet 1 carapace
31 craft
6 snakeskin
46 craft

Both sets of armor require 30 def and ranged to be equipped and their stats are identical, but take a look at the table, it is a lot more dangerous to obtain a piece of snakeskin than a piece of carapace. Plus you can craft a carapace armor directly without tanning. Also the material and skill requirement is much higher when making snakeskin armor compared to its carapace counterpart, making the former much less useful and less economical to make them.

Snakeskin armor seriously needs to be buffed, otherwise its existence will be meaningless.

P.S. The title of this topic should be "With the release of carapace armor, is snakeskin armor going to be trashed?!".

Don't see why they couldn't have just made Snakeskin armour free-to-play.

This is probably the best short term solution, just like Blue Dragonhide.
