It can be looted from Deirex's Tower in Ust Natha after buying the magical rope from Visaj.
|“||This armor's namesake is a serpent only in manner, referring to the Drow assassin Raroh. Poison was his trademark, and when he discovered this suit's susceptibility to venom, he gifted it to Avlorm, a promising novice assassin within his own guild. When Avlorm's power eventually threatened his own, Raroh easily dispatched him, thanks to the weakness of the armor he still wore.||”|
