This quest begins with Celris Shadetracker in Katta Castellum.

You say, 'Hail, Celris Shadetracker'

Celris Shadetracker says 'Hail _____! It is a pleasure to have such seasoned adventurers visit our noble city. I am Magistrate Celris Shadetracker of the Loyalist Combine Empire. I was of the original members of the Combine Empire to arrive here on Luclin and have since become quite familiar with its many lands and their inhabitants. I used to travel extensively but in my old age I have found comfort in remaining here at the Tsaph Katta Hall telling younger explorers of my many journeys and teaching them of the [dangers] that abound.'

You say, 'What dangers?'

Celris Shadetracker says 'There are dangers everywhere for one does not know what to expect or is not careful and attentive while traveling the lands of Luclin. Among the largest of dangers in this region of Luclin are the vampyres of the Coterie of the Eternal Night. The coterie has been particularly active lately and we have already lost scouts attempting to track their [activities].'

You say, 'What activities?'

Celris Shadetracker says 'One of the vampyre volatilis, the winged leaders of the Coterie of the Eternal Night, has been followed flying from their Aerie in the Tenebrous Mountains to a small vampyre settlement in the Maidens Eye far to the south. The volatilis appears to be picking up shipments of wineskins from a vampyre at the settlement and bringing them to their Aerie. I doubt that the skins actually contain wine or any other such relatively harmless liquid. If you could return one of these skins to me I will gladly honor you as I would one of my own scouts.'

Celris Shadetracker asks for a skin of liquid being transported from the Vampyre Aerie in Tenebrous Mountains to a Vampyre Settlement in Maiden's Eye. There is a Vampyre named Vellar Toranal (approximately 54th level) in Maiden's Eye who drops a blood like substance wineskin. Turn that in to Celris and he will reward you with a cloak.

Upon Turn in.

Celris Shadetracker says, 'You have done well _____! I will have this substance examined by our experts at the Magus Conlegium. Perhaps the results will give us some clue as to what the Coterie of the Eternal Night is collecting it for.'

Your faction standing with Concilium Universus has been adjusted by 8.
Your faction standing with Seru could not possibly get any worse.
Your faction standing with Heart of Seru could not possibly get any worse.
You gain experience!

I Received the Skin of Blood like Substance a few months ago not knowing what it was used for and just kept it in my inventory till this morning. I finally looked up the quest info here on this website and thought the item may be used from an inventory slot. Im a Troll (agnostic) and have killed lots of vamps so i wasnt KOS to Katta. The turn in was very simple and the reward received.

THE ITEM IS NOT USEABLE FROM AN INVENTORY SLOT.

At least not by a Troll Warrior.

It was worth a try as some items are useable from inventory slots by classes and races that arent able to wear the item.

Just a little info to help the masses.

I got the substance last night in ME. Was OTW to akheva to get xp and faction, and a group member saw the battlemaster up. We kiled the battlemaster and I checked tracked for named and saw this guy on track. He was an easy pull and even easier kill snare landed to easy. If he was invis I didnt notice I have helm of tracker which gives me perm see invis.

For a quest involving a level 57 mob and getting this reward which is no drop just isnt worth it. To many good cloaks in game that can be gotten just as easy and have better stats ie. direwolf fur, dire wolf hide, spider fur, shimmering terror hide, cheetari bone shield, HBC, lizard scale etc etc. The quest item should drop off of a level 35-40 mob which is where this cloak would best benefit a ranger in those levels. There are no resists on this cloak and at level 60 this gives only 25.2 hps where a dire wolf hide gives much more.

My advice dont camp this guy but if you can get the item with no trouble like its rotting or you happen to see him then do the quest its easy enough for free faction anyway. For any ranger/druid post 55 get hp resist ac and stat cloak. Raising your attack number and having the hps and resists will benefit you more

Got him inside the building before and the outside spawn at the corner building so I think hes random for any of them.

Just Killed him had Spirit of Eagle so never noticed if he was invis. Took 56 druid and 57 wizard to take him down. Dont get close he casts a 200hp life tap. "Winged Death" hit good but root kept being resisted as did "Breath of Karana"
