    You say, 'Hail, Spiritist Karina'

    Spiritist Karina says 'Welcome friend. Come dance by our warm fire or have a seat and [learn] a little bit about the ways of the spiritist.'

    You say, 'I want to learn'

    Spiritist Karina says 'We are those in tune with the spirits that surround us. Ancestral spirits with knowledge of the ancients dance around us by this very fire. They guide is through the darkness. Protect us from pain.
    But a terrible [curse] has befallen the spirits of this thicket, and so it is my duty to train these young Dar Khura in order to aid in the battle that lies ahead.'

    You say, 'what curse'

    Spiritist Karina says 'The spirits are corrupted by foul magic. The souls of our ancestors have been twisted into an abomination known as [shades]. The corpses of long passed friends and relatives walk through the night seeking to destroy the living. We must destroy the corrupted remains of their old bodies and allow the spirits to roam free once more. Will you
    help us [release the souls] of our kindred spirits?'

    Spiritist Karina says 'Always pay attention to your surroundings. There are many opponents that will ambush you while you are out in the field. It is wise to take companions with you when venturing far.'

    You say, 'what shades'

    Spiritist Karina says 'The shades are a deeper form of corruption of the spirit. I can sense great anguish in the spirits that have been twisted into such a creation. Their horror burns my heart so deeply that I cannot bear it. I would not normally ask another to place themselves in danger,
    but it is important that the souls are released from these shadowed prisons of torture and darkness. Please help us [release the souls] of our ancestral spirits.'

    You say, 'I will release the souls'

    Spiritist Karina says 'I am relieved that you have accepted this dangerous task. I can feel the strength of the spirit within you. There are many kindred spirits aiding us in this battle. If you are in tune with the
    spiritual realm, you will find that your rituals of magic will result in aid from our spiritual allies. Return to me with the [darkened jawbones] of the lesser shades so that I may release the spirit once more.'

    You say, 'what about darkened jawbones'

    Spiritist Karina says 'The jawbones will aid me in tuning to the essence of the corrupted spirits. When you return to me with them, you are enabling me to place the lost soul to rest. I am able to release four of these spirits at one time in much the same way I am training these four young trainees. It is best to bring me four of them at one time if you are able.'

    NOTE: Following occurs after turning in four darkened jawbones

    Spiritist Karina says 'Thank you for your aid Ryvius. I will place this spirit to peaceful rest and give these remains a proper burial. It is a shame you could only return with one. It takes four of these to make a real difference. Nevertheless your efforts are appreciated. Thank you.'

    ...

    Spiritist Karina says 'I can see that you have a brave heart. You have rescued many of the fallen spirits with little regard to your own welfare. Such selfless acts should not go unrewarded. Please take these gloves and wear them with pride. It is a symbol of [rebirth].'

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

    Spiritist Karina essentially gives 4 quests as you continue through the dialogue, starting with Darkened Jawbones. I thought to let you know so you can link them to this page:

    #1 Darkened Jawbones
    #2 Sharp Toothed Jawbones
    #3 Rotting Jawbones
    #4 Thick Jawbones

    Thanks for the heads up! I've gone ahead and indicated that these four quests are all considered part of a chain and added some easier navigation between them.

    I tried my hand at that Rotting Jawbone quest in the hopes of finding the rest of the dialog but found that the droprates for both the Rotting (and Thick jawbones for the ?last? quest) are just apparantly crazy rare to the point where I'm not even sure if they still drop Smiley: frown. If in the off chance you happen to do those quests PLEASE upload those as well as I would love to have all the dialog for this entire chain.

    Np. There are more skeletons in that zone, but one has to travel through some of the tunnels to get to the other side of the mountain range in the middle. But I will get that info when I can.

    Darkened Jawbones not rare

    I was killing the shades for the silk and swirling shadow and got these 1 out of 3 or 4 kills. Not any good for me but put them in the Xegony bazaar for questers at 5gp each.

    Spiritist Karina is at (-1630, -2800) in Shadeweaver's Thicket, just northwest of Shar Vahl.

    step 1 is 4x A Darkened Jawbone from lesser shades in Shadeweaver's. (Shattered Jawbone is more common but is junk)

    step 2 is 4x A Sharp Toothed Jawbone from skeletal hunters in Shadeweaver's.

    step 3 is supposed to be rotting jawbones from skeletal brigands in Shadeweaver's.
    next step

    After you do this quest she asks you to collect sharpened jawbones off the other type of skellys. I was too high level and didnt know at the time, so i never did the quest to find out the reward

    Ultra rare drops...

    The darkened jawbones are ultra ultra rare drops unless Verant fixed the drop rate. I have been killing the lesser shades and skeletal hunters (drop the sharp tooth jawbones for the rebirth sleeves) off and on since January and have yet to get one.

    nope, they are rare, but not that rare. Depends on what level of mob you are fighting. The lesser shades over by the entrance to the cave (Paludal Caverns end) drop about 1/5 ive killed

    I think they changed the drop rate a couple patches ago. When I started my kittie, I didn't see any through about level 12. Then a patch came and I started seeing them drop periodically. Or maybe that was just my blind luck, who knows? But they're not too rare any more.

    While I agree that it's about time this quest is doable due to increased drop rate of the jawbones, I think I might have to disagree about the whole "this quest has been in the game forever" bit. Lulin, being the latest expansion hardly constitutes this as forever :)
