The Crimson Cincture is an Artifact half-apron, introduced with the Mondain's Legacy expansion. Originally, it was to be a "minor" artifact found on Mondain's legacy minor bosses, such as Swoop and Miasma. At the urging of players, who recognized its value and power right away, it was changed to be a Peerless-only item. It is found on their corpses (not spawning in someone's inventory, like some other artifacts do).
Originally, it was an elf-only item (an artifact Woodland Belt). The manufacturers were persuaded that something this powerful should not be race-specific.
It is one of the most highly sought after artifacts because it is one of the only Belt equipment slot item that has item properties on it, with the exception of the equally sought-after Tangle and the Obi Di Ense. Ninja belts also have properties, but are of considerably less use. Clothing bless deeds can be used on this artifact on all shards except Siege and Mugen. Like all half aprons, the Crimson Cincture, or CC, is dyeable.
