Very common in Veeshan's peak, not sure if anybody needs it though. A frenzied racnor drops it about 50% of the time.

This is the hide that is mentioned as having a name change in the April 20th patch. Its used for making Master's Longstrider Swatches, which in turn are used for making the various Master's Longstrider armors. According to, the swatch and armor can only be made by halflings, and the armor is wearable only by halfling druids. The swatch is triv 182, and the armors triv in the mid to high 200s.

It is also used by Half-elves to make their (DoN cultural) Runeseeker armor.

Can anyone actually confirm these drop in VP?

I worked really hard and long on CoV/RoS faction -- only to have my culutral quest send me there to hunt?

Do the Racnars affect faction there? Anyone know?

A little late on this reply, but yes, killing racnar lowers Veeshan, raises Mayong/VS/bards.

We have an item in the database that no one has the faintest clue where it came from?
Pray tell just where the weight and other info comes from.
This just appeared in someones' inventory without them knowing HOW it got there? And then that person thought they'd send the info in? Yeah right....
Or even worse, is this pulled from Lucy or Test?
Gawd please stop adding items that ARE NOT CONFIRMED TO BE IN THE LIVE GAME.
Or at the very least, state the source of the listed information.

Only place drops are confirmed from is Veeshan's Peak. An elemental-level keyed zone most players will never see.

One of the developers has stated on EQLive that these hides will be made to drop from much lower level creatures soon though. VP is planned to have the highest drop rate still but any raptor model will likely drop them soon.

Keep an eye on the patch messages for more info.

Do you happen to know exact creature names so we can link this as a drop in the database?

Thanks in advance.

Well, that's very good to hear.
Although I never mentioned it, what upset me most was having to, possibly, ruin faction in Skyshrine in order to complete a cultural quest.
Factions such as Claws of Veeshan, Rune of Scale, Kael and Thurgadin, that have no natural racial enemies (player races that is) should absolutly never be ruined in order to do a quest that really has no bearing on their faction.
If the items required hunting a faction that was a natural enemy to a Tunare worshipping Half-Elf I would have no complaint.
I'm not hunting the racnars because I hate them and want to make rugs from their hides (well ok, just a little carpet), I'm hunting them because I'm required to in order to be a "complete" Half-Elf (?? geez that sounds odd).
The level of creature isn't really an issue, faction and zone access are.
I expect these high end tradeskill items to be rare and hard to get, but not to be rarer or harder to get than any other races' tradeskill requirements.
That issue has already been beaten to death elsewhere so I'll just add one or two whacks.

Hopefully this will be given a long hard look to balance the requirement for each race and to remove any items that require needless negative faction hits.
As part of my role-play, faction is important to me, it is an important part of the game for me even though most people ignore it.
I pay attention to the effects my actions have on the world around me.
Faction hits on cultural armor have to be removed unless they affect a natural enemy/ally.
Just imagine if High Elves needed Coldain toes to make their cultural augments. I'm sure all the High Elves working on their Coldain Shawl would just love that bright idea.
Because it's NOT a bright idea, it's retarded.
Just as retarded as thinking I'm going to ruin CoV faction for my cultural armor.
I'm not, I'm going to whine and moan and kick up a stink until it's fixed. And it ain't fixed yet.

Again though, I must ask, how is it possible for an item to appear in the Allakhazam database and no one has a clue how it got there?
Was this item submitted by a player who killed a creature, looted the item and then forgot how they obtained the item?
Cosmic rays?

Thanks for the reply Catty, much appreciated.
Gives me some hope :)

i do love how un-balanced the these cultural quests are. they should have at least made the drops for the same lvls (ie expert / master) the same difficulty and commanality for each race.

humans, barbarians, expert requires hq bear skins, a very very common drop.

dark elves use drachnid silk swatch, yet another super easy and common drop.

halfling druids? hq wolfskins pretty uncommon.

i could take this stuff instride but then ya get whacked with the master lvl stuff. im not keyed for vp, and if i was i wouldnt want to totaly jack my faction in such a manner.

I disagree that HQ Bear Skins are that common a drop.

Certainly nothing comparable to Drachnid Silk, which you can harvest at up to a stack per clearing of the 3 camps in the East of Dreadlands.

Sure, you need 2 Drachnid Silks to make a swatch, but you'll also get a lot of Spider Silk (for selling or making Ceremonial Solstice Robes) and some Crystallized Sulfur (for Research).

I have several DE and Iksar tradeskilling friends who raised their tailoring from about 170 to 222 very quickly using Drachnid Silk. It's taken months of work for me to catch up. So my personal experience is to agree that cultural tradeskilling is very unbalanced.

Now, Halflings (like Trolls) might not use Drachnid Silk to make Armour, but they can still use it to make Expert's Symbols.. providing Lambent Stones are available.

As for wolfskins, remember to use the Upgraded Pelts quest in Gukta in Rathe Mountains to turn all your LQ and MQ skins into HQ ones. If you don't have a Froggy alt to do the turn-ins then have someone cast Illusion Guktan on you.

Do these drop off the racnars in Skyshrine? because I'm starting to feel like I'm hurting my CoV faction for no reason...
