after 118 hours 27mins i have got my complete Felwithe Defender set almost 3 weeks play of going insane and HATING the game

only trouble i found was wasp warrior parts and giant sylvan bat furs

for 3 days in GFD (even killing everything in sight, especially near the two trunks which are mentioned and matriachs and basilisk htachlings near CB) only FOUR wasp warriors spawned

it took a few days more to get my wasp warrior body pieces except thorax which took a week of daily 4 to 5 hours a day camping) only a few wasp warriors appeared. (only saw 2 thoraxs in 3 weeks and over 100 warriors in total)

Of course once i had all my wasp warrior parts the game spawned 27 warriors in 30mins when i didnt need them anymore, NO giant bats spawned in 4 hours after i killed all wasp warriors

Giant sylvan bats: saw maybe 15 in 2 weeks and none dropped any fur, was about to quit when on sundaymorning i got 3 bat fur drops in about 30mins, so only neededing one more bat fur i pressed on. 3 days later and 18 hours i had killed 37 giatnsylvan bats in a row for no drops at all. at One point i didnt even SEE a giant bat for 6 hours pointless killing. YES i was in a group YES i had rangers and druids helping me and at the end a lev 70 druid came to help. Eventually after nearly 3 weeks of tearing my hair out i got the last giant sylvan bat fur.

Total noob pally set complete.

just for sony's attention not that they have ever cared depsite YEARS of frustration and unbelievable difficulty my friends all started noobie amrour at same time. this is the time taken for them to get full set

Wood elf druid 5 hours
Dorf warrior 6 hours
wood elf bard 9 hours
gnome mage 11 hours
gnome chanter 23 hours

I truly believe a paladin alone with no help can not do thsi quests its harder than EPICS, its been like this for 7 years, sony will never change it despite the unfairness, deplorable treatment of anyone wanting to be high elf cleric or pally imho

Has anyone been able to complete the armor quests using this bat fur? My little Pally on the Combine server is 13 and has been hunting these things for weeks. I've gotten dozens of bat wings, but not a single fur.

Just wondering if it's me, or have these things been changed?

Bah, I have a HE paladin on the Firiona Vie server, and giant or large sylvan bat fur is one of the rarest drops I have ever encountered! It's not like I'm begging for twinkage here--just a little frikkin fur for a newb who has to EARN her way in the world! I have been doing this armor quest for days now and the only one item (greaves) that I have been able to make was from a fur I very asutely placed in the bank TWO expansions ago. Come on people!

You won't find any giant sylvan bats until you spawn the things by killing the giant wasp warriors. What, you can't find any wasp warriors to kill? Oh, right, you have to kill large sylvan bats to spawn them. What, no large sylvan bats around? well clearly you haven't killed enough other wasps. Gotta love it.
It's not just killing 40 giant sylvan bats and getting precisely ONE bat fur, it's the 100s of wasps and other bats you had to kill (green to you) to get the opportunity to kill the 40 giant bats and getting precisely ONE bat fur. For a NEWBY quest.
I'm going to kill no more than 20 more giant sylvan bats and then I'm off to make money somewhere to BUY greaves and vambraces.

Why does every item say common? I have been hunting for these and various Arborean items for over a week now, and I'm still tons of items short. Damn N-D items...

I have now killed 27 Giant bats and gotten ONE fur. Did they nerf the drop rate on these? The Arborean Sapling bark is even rarer now. Ya just gotta LOVE patches. Everytime a patch comes out, they fix one thing and break five others.

This things are way too rare espically since they are part of a Newbie armor quest. I'm lvl. 21 and I just need 4 more and I'm done. A real pain in the ***. :| I know tons of people looking for them too. I once saw them going for 40pp to loot. It's crazy/

Sorry, Kenti, the correct spelling of damnit is, well, d-a-m-n-i-t. The root word damn means to condemn or to curse. "Damnit" is not found in the dictionary; yet, it is an "acceptable" word, mainly used for swearing. Thank you, and have a nice day.

lol Faikken.

You won't find "damnit" in a dictionary because like Kenti said it's spelled dammit. Two Ms. Just because the root is "damn" (obvious) doesn't mean it's spelled the same way. Welcome to the english language!

The Sylvan Giant bat fur's are Extremly hard to find. My friend did this quest for 3 hours one night and did not get one at all. I was helping him track the Giant Sylvan Bats everywhere possible. Was very discouraging.
