Velious Armour Quests
Velious has quest armour for the Monk Class, and is high (45+) level armour. The Quests originate with Lorekeeper Einar, at location -642.00, 43.00, in the Dwarven town of Thurgadin. To reach him, go over the bridge as you zone in, and go up some stairs on the right hand side. You will find at the end of that corridor a Dwarf called Lieutenant Grimur, who guards the PvP Arena. He is to the right, and on the left is a door (easily missed by some) which leads to a corridor, and an opening guarded by 2 guards. Within this room is Lorekeeper Einar.
Gems and Armour
The Eroded Leather seems to be a rare drop, from random giants deep within Kael Drakkal (near the arena area-- this map is a nice one.) As a guide, I was on a 4 hr raid in Kael, and 4 armour pieces dropped, 2 pieces of plate, one piece of leather, and the caster sleeves. They dropped from various Giants -- Vetnerans, Adjudants, and 2 (plate and leather) came from Legionares, so obviously going on as many raids as possible increases your chances.
The gems can be found in the following places:
For the Cap - the 3 crushed coral can be found in Siren's Grotto from Wyverns.
Tunic - Flawless diamonds from Dragon Necropolis, Sirens Grotto, or from deep within Velkators.
Sleeves - Flawed emeralds from Cobalt Scars.
Bracers - Crushed flame emeralds from Icewell Keep or Siren's Grotto.
Gloves - Crushed topaz from Cobalt Scars or the Wakening Lands from the animated suits of armour.
Leggings - Flawed sea sapphires from Wyverns in Cobalt Scar.
Boots - Crushed black marble from Cobalt Scars or the Wakening Lands
There are three other forms of Monk armour in Velious, Silver Moon --which drops from Mobs in the Plane of Growth, White Lotus -- quested from Skyshrine, and Golden Star -- quested from the Giants.
Grandmaster and Silver Moon are simalar if not identical except for the odd stat here and there, White Lotus is slightly more powerful --normally the same AC as Grandmaster, but has more stats and roughly double the hps.
Golden Star armour from the Giants is the best questable Monk armour, with more AC, stats, but the same hps as Grandmaster.
All armour has the same effects as other versions, and none are more powerful spells -- ie the Grandmaster legs spirit of the Ox is the same as the Golden Star Spirit of the Ox.
