Dark Age of Camelot Grab Bag Q&A

EA Mythic's Joanne Laroche has added yet another entry to the long-running Dark Age of Camelot Grab Bag Q&A series on the Camelot Herald.
Q. In PoC the Albion side boss "Rheton" drops a cloak called "Rheton's Shroud." According to several DAoC websites this item is available for all realms. I've killed him 20+ times and have duplicates and triplicates of all of his drops except not a single cloak for Albion. I would assume this is bad luck, but someone I know plays in Hibernia and says he has 8 of them, which leads me to believe that it is not rare. Can you confirm if the item is available to all realms?

A. The Lady of the Jewels snuck into PoC to have a look at Rheton: The shroud is only available to drop for Mids and Hibs who kill Rheton. Albs get a drop instead called Rheton's Skewer, a polearm.
