These were not as bad as I had been led to believe. I quad kited wolves by the Spire using Snare and Fist of Karana. Didnt even need KEI to keep mana up. Got the whiskers in about 45 min.

Question on augments for this item. If I put an augment in this item and then continue on with the quest to 7th Shawl, is the augment destroyed? Have some augments to use, but don't want to waste them. Thanks if anyone knows.

You will have to remove the augment before you turn in the shawl. Don't augment any except the last you plan to quest.

To be specific, you can always turn in the shawl regardless of whether it's augmented or not. You'll lose any augmentations you added to it regardless of whether you dissolve the augmentation in a "birdbath" or hand in the item.

Well here is my experence doing 6th shawl combine

Tailoring 163 - 2 shawl combine fail
Tailoring 171 - 1 shawl combine fail
Tailoring 179 - 1 tread combine fail
Tailoring 179 - successful 6th shawl

Getting wolf whiskers was the most painful farming part. They are pretty rare. Sirens were also rare but not nearly as bad as whiskers.

Shawl not trival at 179

The Thread was trivial to me with a skill of 151. The shawl combine was NOT, but with a Tailoring Geerlok, I got lucky and succeeded on the final combine.

Easy way to raise your tailoring:

ceremonial solstice robe it will take you to 250, and cost about 40pp-50pp a try. I took a look at it again actually about 600pp a try, but if you fail you get the gem studded silver chain back.

2nd route to 6th shawl introduced
# May 15 2002 at 6:13 PM Rating: Default

Made mine earlier today using this new method reported by Kassara Stilfyre in the EQTC Forums:

Just scrolling through the new recipies and noticed this one:

2 velium bits + sandlewood (in forge) = spool of sacred coldain thread. (Trivial <=173)

I'm already up to the 7th, workin on 8th, and I wasn't gonna backtrack just to try this recipe out, but a guildy of mine just finished the 5th the day before and I suggested they try out their shawl with this spool recipe.

And it worked! Took 5 tries, but it worked.

The quirk with this one is it takes like 140pp per combine attempt, but if you've got plat to spare, it sure beats hitting those dire wolves and sirens.

The recipe to which Retlaw is referring did actually exist at one time and it did actually make a Spool of Sacred Coldain Thread. This was an unintentional loop hole in the code. Verant discovered the loop hole and fixed it. Some people will maintain that it was "nerfed". I maintain it was fixed. It's like going to a new car dealer, having the salesman make a mistake on the window sticker price by selling it for $20, then later discovering the error and marking the price back up to $20,000, and then having people say it was nerfed.

i was successful on my 3rd try with 144 skill

1st was fully buffed with avatar & c3
2nd was buffed with c3 & boon
3rd was buffed with just c3

from my experience stats have absolutely nothing to do with success and failure

Stats will effect your increase in skill, so if you are skilling up the buffs will be benificial. The actual sucess or failure will depend on what your skill level is.

I have both the Skyshadow Cloak and Shawl #5. The question is pointless as they take two different slots. The cloak is a back item, the shawl is a shoulder item.

I have been collecting items I knew I would need for this quest for months..and was just about to begin it when camping on Luclin 2 nights ago I and others in my group ran into a named Bat ( Skyshadow ) having never been to luclin we had no clue who he was and only conned blue to the three of us ( myself 46 Dru, 41 mage and a 35 Necro) we killed him fairly easily..and lo'n behold he had quite a spiffy lil cloak on him..

+8 Dex and Wis, levi charges and I do believe Ac of 6 my memory could be failing me on that part tho...My gracious companions allowed me to keep it as I was only wearing the Mammoth one. is my question..Do I have a superb cloak in hand or should I still continue to quest after this no drop one?

# Apr 28 2002 at 6:32 PM Rating: Decent

Well if you replaced your mammoth hide with this one then it would be a back slot item not a shoulder slot item. So, therefore there's nothing holding you back from getting the prayer shawl.
RE: What Now

Even if they were both the same slot (shoulder) I would still go for the preyer shawl because the final quest (runed coldain prayer shawl) has flowing thought effect...

I just got my shawl last night on my first attempt. It took about 2 hours before I had 2 Siren Hairs which was the only thing holding me back. Here were my stats for the combines:

INT 111
WIS 238 (with chanter WIS buff)
DEX 186 (with Boon of the Garou)
Tailoring 152

Combining the thread was trivial at 152 but the combine for the shawl was NOT trivial at 152.

Good luck everyone on this part of the quest!

Gratz ! lucky you :)

> It took about 2 hours before I had 2 Siren
> Hairs which was the only thing holding me back.

Had 2 whiskers and a dozen manes in bank (wish both were stackable) and a beard (wish it was NOT Lore) when I decided today to head for CS and try to solo them. I killed a green one without any problem (got nuked once for 93 hp and Doted once with Suffocate, resisted all her other spells with 96 MR) before I got killed by 2 bulthars :(

Then after a quick CR (thx Ruhe who'd got his 7th shawl 3 days ago. gratz Ruhe BTW), and thanks to 2 great people (Chirine and Leniris, respectively awesome Druidess and Cleric) I got 2 hair and Leniris got 4 in 23 minutes (just checked my logs) we just couldn't believe the drop rate of hair !

> Here were my stats for the combines:

> Tailoring 152

Doh ! mine were
WIS 150ish (should have put my trade skill gear to try & get a skill up at least, blah !)
DEX 243
Tailoring 156 with Geerlok (so 163-164 skill)

and I failed.... sob sob... back to GD/CS to collect hair, beard & whiskers.

> Good luck everyone on this part of the quest

thanks, g'luck on 7th and 8th :)

What do you say to Loremaster Boranin (or whoever the guy is in the church that give you all these quests) to get him to give you this quest? I know you get the pattern from Betti Frostweaver, but I'm assuming you find this out from the Loremaster.

I heard that after Luclin came out they was going to increase the number of Shawls to 10 like the melees ring Quest. So if they do would bet the FT will increase to. But I have 56 Druid and am on 5th shawl (grrr Glowing Bile) but anyway, Mana is my Life blood, and the fact that the 7th shawl has GREAT STATS also! I just hope they do add new Shawl Quests at least give us FT3 or better 4 (havent seen a Drop Item with FT4 yet) would rock to have only way to get be QUEST .
PS already have stuff for 6th so better get back on to hunt Bile to finish my 5th ...GL all

Some of the places say FT1 is a ten mana per tick item. Some say 1, can someone (without flameing like little kids) please 'clarify' this for me?

FT1 is 1 mana per tick. Every little bit counts though. Get that, some Lord Yeli boots, a Tunare earing and you've got 6 mana regen per tick as FT1, FT2, and FT3 items stack. Its constant, and also stacks with C2, GoB, Bardsong and PoTG.

Id just like to add that teh crystalline threads from the spiders in Velks for the 5th shawl can be combined together at tailoring skill of 51... so you dont have to lug around 75 of them until you master tailoring... just combine them as you collect them =)

How anyone could think this item isn't worth the time, I will never know. I guess everyone has the right to their own opinion.

However I think some people don't realize this quest doesn't STOP at 7. Verrant will be adding 3 more quests in this series. So if you think the 7th is good, you can imagine what the 10th will be like.

This quest series is the casters version of the ring quest you see so many tanks striving to achieve. Try taking a look at the stats on the 10th ring and how much better than the 7th ring it is. You can expect a simuliar difference in the shawl series.

I personally don't expect such a great item to come easily and am more than willing to put in the effort needed until I achieve the 10th shawl(When they add it).

Increasing your wis only helps if you are trying to get a skillup. The ONLY things that effect success rate are your raw tailoring skill, and skill modifying devices, such as a geerlok.

So, for skilling up, max your wis/int. For the shawl combine, make sure you have your geerlok.

hi. id like to share my joy with you fine people. i completed the 6th coldain shawl and it is ever so worth it.

first attempt i failed :X int 220+ (not sure exactly) dex 75 (wasnt buffed at all)

after a days worth of collecting components i succeeded! int 230+ dex 75 (had a brilliance hehe)

both were at tailoring 158.

also id like to add that none of these ingrediants are hard to collect when you think about the reward. when you get a good strategy sirens are actually quite easy... and both times i hunted them the hair was about 1 in 5 drop anyway get tailoring as high as you can and just keep at it if you dont have this fine shoulder item yet.

hehe I just don't understand. Some people put a fantastic amount of time into getting the 3rd, 4th and even 5th shawl, and then post here that they are going to stop because **whines** "It's too hard .." or "Permanent increase in mana regeneration that is stackable is not worth the time.." or ".. I am such a moron that I do not understand that all the time and effort I am putting into my character's skill will actually benifit me in MANY other quests and endeavours.." Man, having an item that gives a plus 7 to so many attributes is soooo anoying! How can verrant do this to me? The sky is falling!! I am such a pansy, and need to be fed all my magic items from a sugar daddy who HAS the skill to get them for me... heaven forbid I get the nice items from doing a quest .... that would involve patience, work, and a love for the game ... Not to mention that I love to complain about how much this item sucks because I LACK THE SKILL and DESIRE to get off my **** and do a quest.... so I'll stick to putting down this item to make myself look better ... perhaps people will actually believe that I posses some sort of SAGE power that will make me look all cool by telling people on these message boards .. "The outcome of this quest does not give me an item powerful enough for me to devote my time to a silly mortal quest"

***Reality hits YOU for 50,000 damge***

wake up! This is an uber item, worth the time involved. You get far more than a shoulder slot item. There is no better way to increase your trade skills than doing it for a quest that will PROFIT you.. it's a win/win situation folks...LOL

enough said.

I am soo glad i worked onmy tailoring. Have it up to 160 anyways, which as far i know is tied for highest on my server. I am a cleric, and plan on using it after shawl 6. Completed shawl 5 already. Yes it was mega camped, but you know what?. I grouped with fellow questers so we could kill every spider in the place and get crystal eyes and nice exp too. Quest gems and small pieces of ore drop off the spiders too, so quest 5 was nice. The bile was boring though.
JC took me 2k to raise it from 0 -170. I knwo as a cleric I was quite perturbed to have to raise this skill and flecthing not quite done, only at 127. Good luck to everyone, and off to kill sirens only thing I need for number 6 =)

Heh, even if you can't get a group in Velks you can hang around and loot threads. It's ridiculous how many of them get destroyed just to clean up all the corpses. I got all the threads I needed by grouping, but now I actually hate being ML in Velks because it is such a pain to loot and destroy all the threads that drop. I don't know what you're thinking man, but as a shaman that uses an incredible amount of mana and is constantly canni/regening, I think this item is definitely worth every bit of effort it takes. I figure the 7th shawl would save me about 1 cann every 3-3.5 minutes or 17-20 canns an hour. Group will probably be pleased that I'm spamming a little less on the wincing, hehe.

Thats a shame that you are stopping at shawl 4, especially considering in that just a few short hours my group looted 35 silk threads give or take a couple... i expect to have all the threads i need (on a couple of mules hehe) within the week, then to raise tailoring... and so what if that takes a while... ultimately i intend to be level 60 with epic , and master at every trade skill anyway, by the time i master tailoring, the silks will all be there for me and then its on to part 6 hehe
