As others have already said just hand it to Tilbok Furrunner in Katta Castellum to recharge this item. Once you hand it to him you get the following text:-

Tilbok Furrunner says 'I see you've spoken with Condor, and no doubt he told you I can recharge this for you. Well, it's true, but don't go around telling everyone. It's not something I like to make public, you know. Keep up the good work, though, we all appreciate it around here.'

You gain party experience!!

Also a slight correction to the Item description found above. The Mask of Espionage isn't actually found in the Twilight Sea. It is the result of a quest called "Traitor to the Validus Custodus" which starts with an NPC called Legionnaire Halle in the Twilight Sea zone. The vast majority of the quest takes place in Katta Castellum.

I handed mask to Tilbok after using up one charge and he handed it back with full 5 charges. My faction with Tilbok was Kindly. And rest of katta Ally. This is perhaps the best item I have ever quested as a warrior having rechargable invis is priceless. Also I got the dagger of the eye from Vahn only because I disarmed him during the fight i was unable to disarm Claudius so I dont know what his axe is.

Dagger of the Eye 5dmg 16 dly 3str 2 dex 20hps war rng shd brd rog nec mage wiz ench usable and lore not fantastic by any means but I guess kinda cool since you have to disarm him to get it.

Vahn hit my warrior for average of 80-100dmg got him slowed 50% with tod early and he only took me down to 75% never had to heal myself with druid.

Claudius was near dead Condor could have probably soloed him.

65 warrior was buffed with 62 druid buffs and ds had about 6600hps for the fight easy fight Vahn is by no means a demon

I have done this quest 3 times now. Very easy quest for a 58 cleric, biggest thing is having your faction up high enough to be given the quest. The mask is rechargeable now.I have have recharged it several times.

I just finished a quest in Katta Castellum, and this mask was the result. The quest person also tells you how to recharge the mask, making it a lot more useful.

hehe, well, y'know, Before the nerf, the max sale I got was 476, and yes, I farmed like 6k worth. hehe. Had a bunch of friends along makin a party out of it.

One of them told me yesterday about the nerf after I'd made my other post. hehe, thought someone was just trying to be devious since I had just come from hunting them not five hours previous. hehe, oh well. I am glad they fixxed it though, things like that dropping off a level 25 mob at about 10 an hour is enough to throw the economy wwwaaaaayyy further off track than it allready is...

yeesh, 5pp for a stack of bones that you got from a level 1 critter? I don't think so. 10pp for a Greater lightstone? what are you smoking. 20k for ItemX!? yeesh.

This was the most plat I ever did see, finally was able to get an FBSS though. heh. 6k...yeesh...

Some people just aren't as open minded as others ;)

Whenever there's a bug where a Luclin item appears on the wrong mob, it drops from Shadow Men (rogues). This was just another one of those glitched, and yes they masks did sell to merchants for 466pp max. There was a downtime on the zones with shadow men, removing the masks, and stopping certain lvl 58 warriors from Coven of Shadows from letting me do my jboots quest. =)

If you see where this mask drops in Luclin, please send it in so Allakhazam can edit this item.

at about 6:30 pm, the gm's announced that several zones (all the ones with shadowed men) were coming down for a 15 minute patch...i wonder what that was for? anyway, i did confirm prior to this happening that the masks were selling for a outrageous amount, but i didn't see or hear about anyone overtly camping them on my server, so it's hard to say how or when exactly the VI caught on, but it did take them awhile nonetheless. of course, it's not like they don't have a full plate of other problems as it were....

7 posts is not a good idea to post things like that though...I went and checked and found the previous post to be totally unfounded...Must have been a troll...yup...that's right...No masks here...Nothing to see...move along now...

no offense intended btw...If you think about should understand...Don't flame me...I am well intentioned...

Good thing too, shadowmen should not be dropping loot that sells for 475pp to vendors. They are a mid level mob that should not be dropping valuable loot. You'd prefer everyone farming these? There'd be nothing left of the player economy. Need cash? farm shadowmen for a couple of days and walk off with 75K platinum, yeah thats really balanced.

I didnt have an etched peridot of nature, not sure what I had to be honest. But I now have one of these. Freaked me out when I saw it, thought omg, my account has been hacked and my Druid is being used to move stuff! logged out, went to the sony website and changed the password. Ahh well, I wonder what I lost to get this.

Last night on Veeshan a GM came out and said who ever just received this Item to give him a tell...

techinally, one could camp these....most of the zones in which the shadowed men have camps also have merchants...if you got a way to keep sow on, a quick run to the merchants and back would definitely be worth it if these things really sell for 400 a pop...think i'll be trying this for myself

Can't believe nobody's mentioned this, but a easier item that can invis you! Think of the pvp implications! WOOT!

Perhaps not so easy to get, but Larikan's Mask from OS has 10 charges of Superior Camoflage (I believe, an invis-type spell, in any event), and is also Cleric Usable. Its not No drop, one of my friends keeps one on her for those times when she needs to be stealthy and doesn't have a handy Invis-casting class around.

Can I suggest something to you clerics... and every other class that cannot invis.... BUY CLOUDY POTIONS! They are sold all over the place.. kelethin has them, FV has them... im not sure if thurg does.. ive never found them there.... 11pp for a 1charge instant cast invisibilty.. expendable.. Not Lore.. Very useful for those tight situations. Im a warrior and I always have atleast one on me.

Ok but invis potions cost money-eventually, after all the invises that clerics would have to pay for, this would drain us as much as the peridots. This merely takes time.

A problem with the potions is that to have 5 charges of invis you would need 5 slots... just 1 with this mask, and you could have 10 in one slot with the other mask someone mentioned with 10 charges of sup. camo... Just a thought :-)

Thurg' has 'em. Across from the Pallie guild near the Library. I think all cities have a vendor that sells them, with maybe Paineel as the exception. I looked for 3 hours there with my SK for one.

I had an Etched Peridot of Nature in the bank (even after the warning that it was going to be removed from the game. After the SoL patch, the slot it had been in instead had one of these (although the one I have had no charges on it.) Since then I've seen one on the shadowed men in WC (with the full five charges.)

Charges on Mask

My Etched Peridot just went *poof* no mask even with no charges, but as an opinionated git I will answer what I think is the reason for this..

All objects in the database have a 'number' assigned to them.. eg, etched peridot of nature could have been item number xyzzy (invented number of course) they then delete this item from the database but add another (this mask) this mask is then where all the etched peridots were since they reference that location in the DB.. Charges however are not a reference to a parent object but are a value inherantly fixed to the child object that you possess, as the etched peridot of nature had no charges associated with it, the mask inherited that value when it was 'put' into your inventory. If the peridot had for instance had one charge of charm animals on it, it would by this theory have appeared as a mask with just 1 charge of invis.. my 2cp worth (and totally a guess)
