Firstly thanks to Uxtalzon for that very good tip about the Warrens rats, much quicker than wiping out newbie areas, scouring merchants in the tutorial mines & CR.

But I just noticed that the quests lists Neriak 3rd Gate but not Neriak Commons - http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=2482

The only difference is that in the 3rd Gate has +1 to Dark Bargainers, Dreadguard Inner & Indigo Brotherhood whereas the Commons exterminator has +1 to Dreadguard Inner, Dreadguard Outer & Indigo Brotherhood (and -1 to Primordial Malice).

Since the easy Bottle of Red Wine quest http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=159 gives +10 to the Dark Bagainers & +1 to both guards I preferred to spend my rat whiskers with Exterminator Damasi in the Commons, but if you're dubious to those DE merchants you might prefer Exterminator Gilea (who's a little easier to find near the zone entrance).

The Warrrens, near the jail cells where the Kerrans and Erudites are kept as prisoners. (Kobold Warrens, not Korascian Warrens!)

There are a bunch of "training rat" that almost instantly respawn, no matter how fast you kill them. They wander back and forth in a small area, so AE spells and abilities will easily pile up the corpses.

The good side to this is if you're a caster with a minor AE spell, you can make a mountain of corpses before looting. The downside is you still have to loot the whiskers, one corpse at a time... and it takes longer to loot them all than to kill them. I'd say about two stacks of whiskers every five minutes, because they begin to rot pretty quick after that.

With the new /advloot system this is perfect! Rats spawn as fast as I can kill them, and the loot is automatically moved to my bags. I filtered out all the loot except the whiskers, and pretty soon I had 12 stacks. (And considerable progress on my Pesticide achievement.)

while doing the courier of favor quest i found i need to do rat whiskers quest to get Antonius Bayle faction high to be able to obtain bone chip quest. Go to steamfront mts. there are two great spawn point for A young plague rat. one is on top of a hill @ loc/ 716 / 18 this is North camp. south camp is at the base of a hill next to a steam vent @ /loc -1480 / -770. up to 6 rats at a time spawn here an travel west along the bottom of the hill.they will drop 2 whisker sometime and i was able to farm 220 whiskers in 4 hours using SoE to run back and forth between camps with a 76 druid .as few as two and as many as 6 at a time will spawn.

If you want faction for certain places, you don't have to kill the 'a rodent' NPC's running around inside of towns. Outside Qeynos and in Qeynos hills, look for the large rats, giant rats, or rats, and take the whiskers from them. They drop more often, plus they occassionally drop field rat ribcages and rat eyes, which are normally worth 2gp each.

My 2cp.

It seems hard to drop. I kill them for half hour, and drop nothing.

I tried it on Felwithe.

Anyone knows where it will drop more?

Yeah I dont think SOE quite finished these rat whiskers quests, as a few other cities dont drop them either (Rivervale, Gukta, and some parts of Neriak). If youre really desperate to do this quest, Qeynos rats drop whiskers. Its really not worth it though; the reward is 1 gold, 1 silver and 1 copper; you can go kill regular mobs in Gfay and theyll drop one item that can be worth more than 1 gold. Hope that helps.

I see, thanks.

I do this quest not for the exp or money.

The real reward for me is: Faction. Some of them (ex. Felwithe, Neriak part) raise merchant faction, and it is unavailable before.
Very True

Factions are incredable. The most awesome thing in the game. I've personally found that inside of neriak is the best place to find Rat Wiskers.

If your interested in bringing up the Neriak merchant faction look up the red wine quest. VERY VERY worth while.

1 bottle or Red Wine = Faction with merchants, inside guards, and outside gaurds all goes up. But you have to be dubious at the least to do it. And have invis cast on you. Read my post on the actual quest page about how to do it if interested.
