You say, 'Hail, Shana Liskia'

Liskia says 'Hail and well met Isola. I am Shana Liskia, Enchantress of Freeport. I have studied my art for years here in our wonderful academy. I am also delighted to meet and teach those that come here to gain knowledge. My specialty however lies in Beguiling so I like to train young enchanters. Are you an enchanter?'

You say, 'I am an enchanter'

Shana Liskia says 'Wonderful! Let me be the first to tell you that your training here will be top notch and you will learn all that is to be known about being an enchanter should you put forth the willingness to learn. I will walk you through your early training and assist you in your hunting and gathering skills. I have created a [special sewing kit] that I present to all of the new initiates.'

You say, 'What special sewing kit'

Shana Liskia says 'This kit that I speak of is one that is able to magically infuse different components into materials used for creating Arcane Scientists Armor. The components that you use will be collected from numerous different areas and shops in Freeport. You will use these materials along with patterns that I will present you with to create your armor. Once you are [ready to begin] I will present you with your Enchanted Sewing Kit.'

You say, 'I am ready to begin'

Shana Liskia says 'Very well. Here you are Isola, in this box you will combine specific component recipes as I mentioned before. When you are ready to attempt a specific piece you must tell me what piece you [want] to craft. For example if you had intent on crafting a cap you would say, �I want to craft a cap�. I can offer you the recipes for Arcane Scientists [Caps], [Bracers], [Sleeves], [Sandals], [Trousers], [Gloves] and [Robes]. I must also suggest that you attempt your robe last due to the difficult nature of collecting the correct components.'

You say, 'I want to craft the cap'

Shana Liskia says 'A cap will keep you safe from any attackers as well as the elements. To create your cap material you will need to combine 2 Woven Spider Silks, 1 Snake Fang, 1 Chunk of Meat and a Cloth Cap in your assembly kit. Once you have created the proper material take it to a loom along with this mold to fashion your very own Arcane Scientists Cap.'

Make sure you click "Experiment". Then you can put whatever you'd like to in the loom. This is the only way you can manually place items into the loom.

The other way is for recipe browsing. If you search recipies, and click on one, it will show the required ingredients and allow you to simply click "Combine" without having to search for the items and place them in the loom one by one. It is much quicker this way. Once (if) you create an item, you can click the item on "Auto-Inventory" and it will stick it back into your inventory for you.
Cloth Cap can be purchased

There is a ten-slot loom on the second floor of Velithe & Bardo's Imported Goods in East Freeport.

Please tell me that someone besides me has managed to do all the quests?!
It took from levels 3 to 11 to get them all done, but the cap was actually the easiest (and first I did on the list).
You don't need the loom, a regular sewing kit will do once you use the special sewing kit she gives you to combine everything except the pattern in. Put the ingredients for the material in the special kit, combine to create a pelt looking thing. THEN, put the pattern and the pelt into a sewing kit and combine to get your item.

Where the hell is a loom at? I looked in WFP,and NFP and I can't find one!
a good quest

Woven spider silks can be found on large spiders or dune spiderlings.
If you are lucky, you can buy one in a store for few gp.
That "arcane scientist cap" is very useful for a low wizard. I did it at level 5 not twinked, so i think the minimum to do that quest is 5.

Hail all. I have also had trouble with this quest, along with the robe which i found out where the beads are (check it out). I emailed the EQ guys and they told me you need a sertin cap. This is what order i made it in, and it worked, here (top left to top right) 1:woven spider silk. 2: woven spider silk 3:snake fang (from a regular snake in WFP) 4: a chunk of meat (bought from merchents at WFP, not a snake meat, just a chunk of meat) 5:A cloth cap (this is titled "cloth cap" is size SMALL, and fits wiz and such) NOW COMBINE!!!!

This should work, if now ask the people at, email them, and tell them about this delema, i hope it works for all of you!
PS: the weaver in FP is in EFP in the "World goods echange thingy place (forgot name, it's blue)" on the second floor. See ya!

Finally got the cap, used a chum of meat of a young puma. Tried every meat in EQ before to no avail. Finally got it fixed. The prayer beads are still rather elusive, heard many rumors about them existing, but no one can offer proof, have yet to see anyone with the robe...If ansd when i get it, you all will be second to know!

Those beads are Orc Chief Warbeads. Those are NOT the the correct ones, and do not work. According to a GM the correct item is called Orc Prayerbeads. I wonder if anyone has ever found them? I kinda look a little silly now with all the pieces execpt the robe, since I wear the cloth shirt required for this recipe. If anyone has ever seen these bloody prayer beads, I would greatly appreciate hearing about it.
I do not feel, I think.
Can't start quest!

Cap is Working

It is true, it now works. I just completed the cap for this armor set. Stats are as indicated below. It looks like any other leather type skull cap for humans, except it is red. I was kind of disappointed with the look. I was hoping for the pointy wizard type hat = ) Anyway, I now have all pieces except the bloody robe. Of course the only missing item for my robe is the stinkin' Orc Prayer Beads. I can't find them anywhere. I even asked a GM today and got the standard party line about how they couldn't discuss item drop information...blah, blah, blah. He did say that the prayer beads have been dropping since before the patch of 05 Jun 02. Well, if anyone has any info on the beads, I would greatly like to know.
I do not feel, I think.

Tried to combine the items yesterday and failed. Tried today and they worked, but the Woven Spider silks had to be Unstacked.
Then found out only humans can wear this item.

I DID IT!!! Just now logged in on June 5th. The stats on the cap are: AC 2, INT +1, and HP +5. I logged in after the patch was done. All ingred were already on me. The first thing I did when I logged in was put the ingred in the kit. The snake fang was from the newbie zone at westside gate. The meat was just a chunk of meat like the directions say. The cloth cap was what I already had on my head. I bought it when I first started the game. I think just make sure a wiz and human can wear it. When you hold down the right button the size says it is medium.
On another note I have urcicating hairs on me (one) For who ever wants them first. I am Nivag.
Offically I have on my body now the :bracers(2), sandals, sleeves, leggings, cap. Still need to do the gloves and robe and knife.

Have you bothered to read the previous posts? I don't believe anyone has quite figured out the cap as of yet. Working on my own theories...
I have tried everything..
# May 30 2002 at 8:23 PM Rating: Default
I have tried this cap also, but to no avail, i tried puting all the stuff in order, stacked and no stacked, IS THERE ANYONE WHO HAS ACTUALLY MADE THE CAP???? PLEASE POST IDEAS, PLEASE!!!!(does anyone know how to contact the GM and tell him about this problem??)
cap not combining
# May 29 2002 at 9:04 AM Rating: Default
The cap is a dropped item from some mob. this is according to the GM who answered my petition. Though she wouldnt tell me what mob drops the cap she did specify that it is not the purchased one. If I get it to work I will post again with name of mob and where I found it on Rallos Zek. Also time is different on each server so I wont post he time I looted it.

I have gathered all these pieces and put the most of the Armor together np, untill I got to the Cap. I have tried all types of Combination and nothing works. This recipe is broke on Ayonyea Ro also. When I ask a GM in Chat they say petition and cry about it to the server GM, not his responcability but he will make note of it and blah blah blah.. And by the way petition the server GM and cry to him...
