    (This is a long quest with a lot of TEMPORARY items involved to begin with...but it's a very fun quest with a really cool Roleplaying element...the Whisperlings! Who knows what other quests will get us "closer" to them, and be able to use their abilities.)

    Tiamon Aroo is the Tailoring Merchant in the Building near the bard's camp fire in Shadeweaver's Thicket.

    You say, 'Hail, Tiamon Aroo'

    Tiamon Aroo says 'Greetings _____, watch where you step for the [needle clawed hoppers] are just about everywhere!

    You say, 'what needle clawed hoppers?'

    Tiamon Aroo says 'Those wretched vermin swarm to our city and trade routes in search of the refuse left by careless travelers who pass through these parts. They are just about useless and their stench brings bile to my throat. I would have set out to poison the whole lot of them if it was not for their unique [claws].

    You say, 'what claws?'

    Tiamon Aroo says 'The claws of the hoppers act as a [spirit anchor]. They are specialized in tearing into the fiber of the shadow beings that roam the thicket. I find these claws useful in [binding] the silk fashioned by the [shadeweavers].

    You say, 'what spirit anchor?'

    Tiamon Aroo says 'A spirit can only materialize within our realm by binding themselves to an object that is a spirit anchor. Some bones and stones have such properties. A spirit anchor can also do the most damage to the material form of such spirits when used as a weapon. I use the claws of the hoppers as a sewing needle of sorts to [bind the silk] made by the [shadeweavers]. A standard sewing needle would only pass through the substance of the silk. The hopper claws can pierce through their ethereal fabric effectively.

    (The previous part of this quest doesn't need to be done, but rather gives insight into what Groo McManus means by the "Spirit Anchor")

    Groo McManus is in the White Building on the left following the road out of Shar Vahl into Shadeweavers Thicket. He's a Barbarian.
    You say, 'Hail, Groo McManus'

    Groo McManus says 'Greetings adventure seeker. I have come from afar to study this strange thicket. The spirits are strong within this region, but they are secretive as well. I am willing to impart my wisdom to those who will aid me in my exploration. Are you [interested?]

    You say, 'I am interested'

    Groo McManus says 'Very well then! Let us begin. First you must attune yourself with the nature of spirits. For this you must learn to find a spiritual anchor. Find such a thing within the crater that surrounds Shar Vahl and return it to me. Then we may continue. I cannot tell you more, but there is a Vah Shir who has the knowledge that you seek. Seek him out in this thicket to learn what you can.

    Give GrooMcManus the "A Needle Thin Claw"

    Groo McManus says 'Excellent! You have done well. I can sense that you are in tune with the spirits around you. Take this, for you will need it in your next task. When you are [ready] for your next lesson let me know.

    You gain experience!!

    You say, 'I am ready'

    Groo McManus says 'You have learned a fraction of the nature of the spirit. To exist within our realm they must become a part of our realm by binding themselves within material. The hoplings claws have evolved to tear spirits from their material anchors. A disrupted anchor will normally send a spirit to the planes in which they belong, but sometimes the spirit becomes lost. This has happened within the crater that surrounds Shar Vahl. We must do what we can to [help] the lost spirit. The lost spirit had found the nearest anchor to take refuge in when its own anchor was destroyed. The spirit now lies trapped within the very claws of the hopling that had tried to destroy it. Will you help?

    Groo McManus says 'Near the south bridge of Shar Vahl city, a mysterious rock formation hangs precariously within the crater. When you have arrived, you stand beneath the rock and call to the wind, speak the word 'Lumanes', be sure to clear all thoughts from your mind when doing so. If we are not too late, a kindred spirit will speak with you. Take your discoveries to my friend Shavra in the crater, she will know what to do.

    (Again, doesn't need to be done, but who can say no to free experience?)

    Your Location is -852.56, 890.03, -343.91
    You say, 'Hail, Dar Khura Shavra'

    Dar Khura Shavra says 'Lo there wanderer. Something is amiss within the region, have you not felt it? I sense a [whisperling] nearby.

    You say, 'what whisperling?'

    Dar Khura Shavra says 'A whisperling, who brings us dreams, you cannot see them. They do no harm, but I sense anger in them. They have made an enemy. If you are willing to aid us in our research, please seek Groo McManus in the shadeweavers thicket, he has some insight on these whisperlings.

    The Whisperling can be called (not found, but called) under the glowing rock formation NEG580, POS560
    Sit and say "Lumanes"

    You say, 'Lumanes'

    a whisperling speaks softly, 'Lumanes _____, Our cousin, a spirit of frost, is trapped. We may not intervene. Only one of flesh may aid us. Are you one [able to help]? '

    You say, 'I am able to help'

    a whisperling speaks softly, 'Then we thank you. We will lure it here. But beware, it uses our cousins strength to protect itself.'

    A frost covered hopling attacks

    He has about 30 Hitpoints, hits for 1 damage 99% of the time, Burst of Flames (not often) for 4 damage
    But, I couldn't do much more than 1 damage to him 90% of the time, and did maybe 3 and 6 the other 2 times I did do more than 1 damage. In other words, VERY easy fight.

    You have slain a frost covered hopling!
    You gain experience!!
    --You have looted a A Frosted Claw.--
    (A Frosted Claw - NO TRADE/TEMPORARY - Primary Piercing - DMG:2 DLY:25 SV COLD: +1)
    TEMPORARY!

    (Note: The frost covered hopling can be summoned any time by saying "Lumanes" in that spot! It's basically a newbie Monster Generator! I got experience at 4, and with the easy fight, he can be killed over and over for experience. Hopefully Verant doesn't realize this and change it -=| )

    Go back to Shavra (who is very close) and give her the "A Frosted Claw"

    Dar Khura Shavra says 'Oh _____! This is a whisperling, and she is beautiful! You must find a way to free her of this anchor. Take her to Ragnar, he may know what to do. Let me put her in this bag to keep her safe for now.

    Your faction standing with Guardians of Shar Vahl has been adjusted by 1.
    You gain experience!!

    You get a "Frosted Bag" from her. It's a 0.0 NO TRADE object

    Spiritist Ragnar is in the Var Shal Alchemy Shop west of the Bank

    You say, 'Hail, Spiritist Ragnar'

    Spiritist Ragnar says 'Well hello... How may I help you?

    Give the Frost Bag to Spirit Ragnar

    Spiritist Ragnar says 'Eh? What have we here?'' Ragnar examines the frosted claw carefully. He closes his eyes and begins to chant while holding the claw cupped between his hands. As he opens his eyes he nods at you and begins to speak. ''You have done well to bring her here _____. This is a whisperling, her name is Siver. She is very young, so it is hard for me to understand her. From what I gather, she has an important task to fulfill, but I am still unsure what that task may be. Please take her with you for now, I think that is her wish. Perhaps Grawleh will be able to assist us further, and maybe even find a more suitable anchor for her. I think it would be wise to show her to him.

    You gain experience!!
    You also get Claw of Frost.

    (Claw of Frost - NO TRADE/TEMPORARY - Primary Piercing - DMG:3 DLY:25 SV COLD: +1)
    TEMPORARY!

    Elder Spiritist Grawleh examines the contents of the bag carefully. This is no ordinary spirit _____. It is a whisperling, a bringer of dreams. You are quite lucky, I think she will go with you. She will be able to protect you from cold magic. If you need more protection you can call on her to help you endure the cold. This is how the Dar Khura weave their spells, we ask the spirits for their aid. This scroll will show you how to call on her for her protection. You will also need to construct her a more suitable spirit anchor. This claw will not contain her much longer. Please hurry to Ragnar with the claw and a fresh [bloodling carapace]. It may buy us some time before she fades away.

    You gain experience!!
    He gives back "Siver's Claw"
    (Siver's Claw - NO TRADE/TEMPORARY - Primary Piercing - DMG:3 DLY:23 DEX:+1 SV COLD: +1)
    TEMPORARY!

    You may also receive a minor spell.

    You say, 'what bloodling Carapace?'
    (I may have done something wrong like cancelled the conversation, because he didn't answer about the carapaces, but they drop from "a Cht`Thk bloodling" in Shadeweaver's Thicket newbie area...you may want to collect 8 in total, you'll need 7 more later. You've been warned.)

    Bring Spiritist Ragnar a "Bloodling Carapace" and the Claw of Frost.

    Spiritist Ragnar says 'Well done _____, I hope it isnt too late.'' Ragnar begins to chant over the carapace and the claw, holding each in opposite hands. A soft light travels from the claw to the carapace as the claw turns to dust. Ragnar opens his eyes and begins to speak, ''It has worked, but all we have done is buy ourselves more time. While you were away, I have been speaking to Master Barkhem. He has a shield frame that can support these carapaces. You will need to craft such a shield by including this carapace and into the frame along with enough to fill each slot. You are doing quite well young _____, Siver has grown a little stronger. You can make use of her innate dexterity by weaving this spell.''

    Spiritist Ragnar hands _____ a scroll before he continues to speak. ''When you have completed the construction of the shield, return it to me and I will strengthen the anchor.''

    Your faction standing with Guardians of Shar Vahl got better.
    You gain experience!!

    He gives you a Strengthen Scroll (bug?) and a "Frosted Carapace".
    It's only a 0.0 NO TRADE item! You can actually pause at this part of the quest! (but why would you want to?)

    Master Barkhem is in the Armory to the North of the Pool in front of the Palace
    (I believe his Loc is "202.18, -167.21, -187.62")

    Master Barkhem tells you, 'That'll be 3 gold 2 silver 4 copper for the Carapace Shield Frame'.

    Buy the Carapace Shield Frame (this quest makes me wonder what else can be put in this frame)

    Now head to Shadeweavers and get ready for a long time of running around and killing Cht`Thk bloodlings. The carapace is a pretty uncommon(rare?) drop. This may take over an hour.

    Place the "Frosted Carapace" in the Carapace Shield Frame along with 7 Bloodling Carapaces and combine. You'll get a "Dull Frostweavers Shield!"
    (Dull Frostweavers Shield - AC 3 DEX: +1 SV COLD:+3 5.0 wt SHM BST)

    Ragnar said he'd make the shield stronger when you brought it back to him, so do that. Give the Dull Frostweavers Shield to Spirit Ragnar back in the Alchemy Shop.

    Spiritist Ragnar says 'Nicely done _____. This anchor should be sufficient to keep Siver bound to this realm for a while. She is strong enough to blind your enemies with a bright flash of light now, all you have to do is call on her spirit. I still cannot make complete sense of her thoughts, I think she is trying to tell me of another whisperling entrapped within the crater. Keep an eye open for the whisperling Scorpialis.

    (Scorpialis is a weapon from the TailFang Quest. I don't know if he's just giving you info on a seperate quest, or if he wants you to finish that too)

    Spiritist Ragnar says 'In the meantime, you can seek out a shield made of Xakra. Xakra made of the ethereal fabric of the spirit realm. I know the Shak Dratha within the thicket are weavers of this rare form of shadow silk. Such a shield can help us strengthen the anchor, making it easier for Siver to aid you. It will also improve her health greatly. She has been through a lot and is in rather poor condition as it stands now.
    Your faction standing with Guardians of Shar Vahl got better.
    You gain experience!!
    You also gained the stronger version of the Frostweavers Shield
    (Frostweavers Shield - AC:4 DEX+1 SVCOLD+4 MAGIC NO TRADE)

    (This appears to be the next part of the quest, but is still unsolved from what I hear)

    Your faction standing with Guardians of Shar Vahl got better.
    You gain experience!!
    You also gained the stronger version of the Frostweavers Shield
    (Frostweavers Shield - AC:4 DEX+1 SVCOLD+4 MAGIC NO TRADE)


    I also got Spell: Flash of Light as reward.

    Frostweaver Shield quest

    This is a nice quest for those playing on the EQMac server Al'Kabor, particularly Shamans who don't have the newbie armor quests. I got lucky and got a nice piercing drop from a bloodling. So completion gave me a weapon/shield combo!

    Very exciting. The carapaces took the longest to get. I got 5 right of the bat and was thrilled, but then took about an hour more to get the other 3. The Frostweaver's Shield is NO DROP but it did equip and I followed this walk-through exactly.

    I did the quest all the way to the final sentance, and got the Frostweavers Shield - AC:4 DEX+1 SVCOLD+4 MAGIC NO TRADE but it won't go into the shield slot for me to use. Any ideas.

    Hmm...maybe trying to give Spiritist Ragnar some shade silk will go to the next part of the quest?

    I'll try it as soon as I can kill the Shak Dratha. =P

    I have been to -852.56, 890.03 several times looking for him. I think he is supposed to be in the tunnels but these coordinates do not work out in the tunnels. I have tried tracking him but to no avail. Maybe I am doing the coordinates wrong. Are they supposed to be exactly like this (-852.56, 890.03) when I type /loc or are the supposed to be opposite (890.03, -852.56)? Any hints?

    I did this quest last night and received the Frostweaver's Shield. I found Dar Khura Shavra at -871, 963, -346 against the wall slightly above the pit. This is the order of the coordinates when /loc is used. (-871, 963, -346)

    Also, killed Tailfang 10 times and he did not drop his tail or anything else.

    Has anyone even bothered tryign the same basic run threw with the NPC's with the dro pfrom TailFang.. for some odd reason that just seems to be so stupidly easy people look over it. I'm fairly new to EQ so I might test it later when I'm a higher lvl.

    I was on my rogue and I snuck behind the smith (note that all Vah Shir get sneak to my knowledge), and presto, he sells stuff, INCLUDING a shield. I just stopped in on my way through because I remembered this quest from when I had a Vah Shir, hope this helps.

    Don't worry, we were all new once. I forget which is which but the first and second numbers refer to how far north/south and East/West you are in the zone, those are the important numbers. ( 0, 0 is the middle of the zone). The third number is how high you are, helpful in mountain areas or those with several floors. Good Luck and Happy Hunting. =)

    # Jan 19 2004 at 8:43 PM Rating: Decent
    two things occur to me, one is to try to deal with the Shak Dratha smith (maybe sneaking will work?) the other is that perhaps a shield could be constructed in a similar fashion to shadowscream armor? Once my skill and level are sufficient to hunt the components, I'll experiment with this idea..

    OK guy's just bare with me here, but just a thought, Since the Xakra can only be sown by using a Thin claw Needle, perhaps this is key, to make Shadow cloth armor , you have to combime a No Rent Xakra Piece of armor with a Cloth piece of the same type, ie Cloth cap w/ Xakra Cap = Shawdow Cap, or something like that, not really sure of exact name, but you get the idea, So maybe if you Combine A Xakra Buckler or Shield with the frost Shield that has the Whisperling in it and a Thin claw needle , and then try combine, perhaps this will work, Not Sure about this but I will try it and post it if I am successful, and reveal any details I can, wish me luck

    Besides being an obscure reference to a named MOB in Vex Thal, it is also the name of some little worms in Shar Vahl and Shadeweavers Thicket - They drop a few no drop items. Buuuut, Shak Dratha scouts drop (RARELY) this no drop NO RENT item:

    And the hunters drop (RARELY) this no drop NO RENT item:

    http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=12554

    And the plot thickens because of one post by aerowen:

    "You receive an anvil that Master Barkhem refers to as a 'spirit anchor', just like the needles that fix Xakra Kel armor for tailors."

    Will we ever know the truth? I'm going to slay some Shak Dratha tonight!

    Shade Silk?
    # Aug 07 2003 at 12:24 PM Rating: Decent
    4 posts
    I haven't seen anyone mention the Shade Silk dropped by Shak Dratha. At the end of the known part of this quest, Ragnar says, "I know the Shak Dratha within the thicket are weavers of this rare form of shadow silk.".

    I keep seeing people say that you should get the shield off the Shak Dratha, but when I thought about it, it makes more sense that you're just getting the silk off them, since Shade Silk is different than Shadeling silk and I've only seen it dropped off Shak Dratha. Of course that still leave the question of -how- you make the shield, if you make it at all.

    Hello.

    I found the whisperling in the pit around Shar Vahl and asked myself where the name "Lumanes" came from. Is there any hint in the game which pints to this name?

    And, if so, has anyone found other hints for other whisperling names? Can't believe this whole thing around Lumanes only for one of the whisperlings ...

    I think you're misinterpreting the meaning of "Lumanes". You'll note that when you say it to the whisperling, the whisperling responds by saying it back to you:

    "You say, 'Lumanes'

    A whisperling speaks softly, 'Lumanes Astrall, Our cousin, a spirit of frost, is trapped..."

    This is more like a greeting than a name, for example if I said "Shalom" to you and you replied "Shalom" in return. Repeating one's own name back when hearing it spoken would be unusual, and since the creature is otherwise speaking very good Common, I'd say it is not a name at all but a word of greeting. An alternate form of "Hail", if you like.

    And has anyone given this Xakra Shield to Ragnar or Xakra shield + Frostweavers Shield?

    I hope that we won't search 7 Xakra Shields to combine it with the Frostweavers Shield in the Carapace Shield Frame again...

    Not to burst anyone's bubbles, but after intense testing, experimenting, and exploring, there currently appears to be no continuation of this quest. Uppon asking a GM however, they told me that they were "not allowed to disclose that information at this time." (typical GM answer from my experience)

    So, if you want to keep searching, go ahead, but to warn you in advance, you probably won't find anything. And judging by how SOE has dealt with this kind of thing in the past, they probably won't ever get around to finishing it. =(
