Find Tiamon Aroo, in a merchant hut along the north edge of the newbie area (loc -1450, -2800).

The Sewing Needles resulting from this quest are used in Shadow Hopper combines.
Shadow Hopper Armor (Trivial 35):
Xakar Item (TEMPORARY)
Tattered item (Trivial 26)
Sewing Needle (Quested)


You say, 'Hail, Tiamon Aroo'

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

You say, '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, 'How are they useful in binding?'

Tiamon Aroo says 'A spirit must be bound to material from our own realm. Stones such as those used to build cities can be great anchors for spirits. The more ritual and culture that a stone is exposed to, the stronger it becomes as an anchor. You can use the claws of a hopper to sew the shadeweavers silk onto a suitable anchor. If you bring me four of these claws, I can fashion one of them into a needle for you.

You say, 'What shadeweavers?'

Tiamon Aroo says 'The shadeweavers hunt the beings of shadow found within the thicket. From them they fashion their shadow armor they call Xakra. We have tried to use this strong and lightweight armor in the past, but the shadows just disperse. I have found that sewing this armor onto a suitable [spirit anchor] will keep it from dispersing.

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.

You say, 'Why bind the silk?'

Tiamon Aroo says 'A spirit must be bound to material from our own realm. Stones such as those used to build cities can be great anchors for spirits. The more ritual and culture that a stone is exposed to, the stronger it becomes as an anchor. You can use the claws of a hopper to sew the shadeweavers silk onto a suitable anchor. If you bring me four of these claws, I can fashion one of them into a needle for you.'

Hand Tiamon 4 x A Needle Thin Claw, dropped off "a needle clawed hopper."

Tiamon Aroo says 'Well done! You have brought me plenty of claws. I have enough now to make a needle for you. May it serve you well.

You gain experience!!

You receive A Claw Needle.

What is with this guy? Like every other day he can be found outside his shop. Of course then he says he can't talk to you right now so you can't trade and get the needle. Is this some sort of bug?
