I just killed about 50 of these and got ONE rib bone. I guess these are a rare drop now or something. I bought two in the bazaar though. If you're camping these, just don't give up, they still drop.
No Luck

I've been through qeynos hills at the haunted stones, and spent countless hours in Befallen smacking the putrid skellies looking for some of these, and no joy. If anyone has any on Saryrn, send me a tell, please...i give lotsa love (pp style) to anyone with 3 to spare.
Mmmmm, cheese.
Am I killing the wrong skeletons?

I am on the Saryrn server and over in Qeynos Hills and have killed at least a 100 of the decaying skeletons, and nothing. Well plenty of bone chips and weapons, the occassional tibia, but no putrid rib bones. Am I missing something??

Yup, your killing the wrong skellies. Go to the haunted ring of stone pillars; to the left as you leave Surefall. Putrid Skeletons spawn there... Good luck!

Saw a person camping 3 spawns in the ring of stone pillars and thought "err, I see why this takes a while".

Checked back later, north end of Qeynos Hills was empty so I killed the 3 spawns and started downing all the wandering critters near them. More and more skeleton respawns, including some roaming Putrid Skeletons.

So they don't just spawn inside the ring of stones. I got my pieces in less than 1 hour, went afk to look something up. There was about 12 skeleton spawns in "pile of bones" form... so the roamers will travel and sit in the area of the stone pillars. Varsoon spawned once, as did Pyzjn. This happened to be night time in game.

Also noted that some skellies aggro and kill each other at the stone ring. Putrid were one that did this for sure. Not certain on the dread or restless.
Also for the Undead Quest from Qeynos Hills

<I>This is part of of a Paladin for the Rodcet Nife Quests. So far I am not sure If Pallys are the only ones to do it and what item you get as I cant find the person to Decipher the Torn Parchment either. but will post what I have done so far here below. Hope it helps some.

First Go to the temple of life. find where the spells are sold inside the building to your right. Take the first door. and find Roesager Thusten standing just inside the door (sometimes hes outside gates wandering so you may need to waite for him to return.) Hail him.

Roesager Thusten says: Hail Taludara, My name is Roesager Thusten, Paladin of life. I am a loyal servant of the prime healer. And I seek to Destroy all who wish to bring death and disease to the land of Norrath.

Taludara says: Who is Niclaus Ressin?

Roesager Thusten says: Niclaus Ressin? Have you seen him? He is one of our Paladins Who was sent out to Ivestigate the undead sightings in the Qeynos Hills. I have a message from Jhanda for him, but I must continue my Own search here in Qeynos. Could take this note to Him? Your Help would be appreciated.

At this point Roesager Thusten gives you a Note . so Now you need to find Ressin.

So you Go out the gates and to the Left. Follow wall till you Zone into Qey Hills zone. keep following the wall till you pass the Shack hut and the fire area and just over the hillrise onto the other side (should of got location but my error) He should spawn there. you might have to waite a few moments for him to do so but this is where I found him.

Taludara Says : Hail Niclaus Ressin.

Niclaus Ressin says: Hail Taludara, I am Niclaus Ressin, Loyal paladin of Life. I am scouting the Qeynos Hills on orders from High Priestess Jhanda. We have recieved reports of Undead prowling the hills of Late.

(At this point I gave him the note from Roesager)

Niclaus Ressin says: OH things are becomming Dire here in Norrath. May Rodcet Protect us! I have gathered most of the Evidence that I will need to present to Jhanda. But I could still use your assistance with one Final Piece. I need to Recover a Rib Bone from one of the undead beasts that wander these hills. Be sure that the Rib Bone comes from one of the Putrid Skeletons, they are the spawn of Bertoxxulous.

Taludara says: Have you seen any Undead?

Niclaus Ressin says: I believe the Undead prowl these hills at night. I have found the remains of Several Adventurer's who obviously had the misfortune of running into some of Bertoxxolous' dark minions. One such Human was still clutching this Parchment in his cold Dead Fist.

Taludara says: What Parchment?

Niclaus Ressin says: I believe it is from a spell book of some kind, and I do not have the working Knowledge of things Arcane. Perhaps you could Help? Take it. Im sure someone in Qeynos could Decipher it. I must remain here to Gather more Evidence, but return to me With anything you discover.

(Here he does give you the torn Parchment. You cant read it Well I cant it wont let me at all. )

I wandered all over qeynos north and south trying to find someone to decipher this thing but to no avail Havent found anyone yet am still looking. and the rib bone I havent gotten just yet. but will post more here when I do finish this thing.

Good Luck and hope this helps
