Notice: Cultural tradeskills were recently given a major overhaul. Much of this information may be outdated.

We would like to have this guide on the wiki. The wiki article about Dragons of Norrath Cultural Armor can be found here. If you have any information to contribute, you can do so directly if you desire.




This is an overview of how Cultural Armor quests in Dragons of Norrath work. For more detailed information related to individual races, use the quest links on the lefthand side of this writeup.

This cultural armor works in tiers (note the indicated levels are requirements for getting the tasks from quest NPCs; you can make the low-stat armor at earlier levels, but not the augmentations):

First Tier: Simple
-Tradeskill components obtainable at 30th level.

Second Tier: Ornate
-Tradeskill components obtainable at 40th level.

Third Tier: Intricate
-Tradeskill components obtainable at 60th level.

Fourth Tier: Elaborate
-Tradeskill components obtainable earlier than 70th level, but you won't be able to get the task for the required book until then.

There are plate, chain, leather, and silk armor combines. Plate and chain is done through smithing in cultural forges. Leather and silk is done through tailoring in cultural sewing kits.

Note that mold and pattern combines produce an eight-slot backpack full with the following items:
20x Chest Slot
20x Legs Slot
20x Arms Slot
20x Head Slot
20x Hands Slot
20x Feet Slot
40x Wrist Slot

Obtain Armor Books

See the "Tradeskill Quests" NPC in your home city. Perform tasks to obtain an Ancestral Armor Book, Simple Book, Ornate Book, Intricate Book, and Elaborate Book.

..........................................................................................................................

Smithing Recipes:

MOLDS = Ancestral Armor Book + High Quality Firing Sheet + Huge Block of Clay + Compacted Backpack + Sculpting Tools

BARS = Cultural Metal + Item Drop + Cultural Hammer

SHEETS = Cultural Hammer + Water Flask + (Tier's) Bar (made in the above combine)

ARMOR PRODUCTION = Armor Mold + # (Tier's) Sheet(s)/Bar(s) + Large Brick of Cultural Metal + Cultural Hammer
**NOTE: # is 3 for Chest and Legs; 2 for Feet and Head; 1 for Arms, Hands, and Wrists
**NOTE: Chain combines use BARS; Plate combines use SHEETS

This produces armor with minor stats and augmentation slots 7, 11, 12.

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Tailoring Recipes:

NEEDLE = Embroidering Needle + Cultural Brewing Essence

SEWING KIT = Water Flask + Needle Mold + Thimble Mold + Small Brick of Cultural Metal
**NOTE: Just to make things a little more complicated, Wood Elves and Halflings use bits instead of a small brick.

PATTERNS = Ancestral Armor Book + Roll of Plain Parchment + Large Bottle of Ink + Compacted Backpack + A Quill

SWATCHES = Cultural Spool of Thread + Cultural Needle + Culture-Specific Silk Swatch or Dropped Hide/Pelt

ARMOR PRODUCTION = Armor Pattern + # (Tier's) Swatch(es) (produced in the above combine) + Large Spool of Cultural Thread + Cultural Needle
** NOTE: # is 3 for Chest and Legs; 2 for Feet and Head; 1 for Arms, Hands, and Wrists

This produces armor with minor stats and augmentation slots 7, 11, 12.

..........................................................................................................................

The Symbols (Augmentations)

Symbols can be made by anyone of any deity in any culture's forge or sewing kit.

SYMBOL PATTERN PRODUCTION:
Inside a Book Binding (bought from local vendors), produce (Tier's) (Slot) Symbol Pattern:
Recipe = (Tier's) Book of (Race) Culture + Compacted Backpack + A Quill + Large Bottle of Ink + Roll of Vellum
(**Quality of Vellum varies by Tier: Blessed = Roll; Revered = Good; Sacred = High Quality; Eminent = Superb)

Blessed Water of (Deity) can be bought from local vendors.

JEWELCRAFT COMBINES:
Blessed Water of (Deity Name) = Blessed Water + Jade Shard
Revered Water of (Deity Name) = Blessed Water + Lambent Stone
Sacred Water of (Deity Name) = Blessed Water + Crushed Diamond Dust
Eminent Water of (Deity Name) = Blessed Water + Purescale Ore

SLOT 11 AUGMENTATION PRODUCTION (SMITHED):
(Tier's) (Armor) Symbol of (Deity Name)
Recipe = (Tier's) Water of (Deity Name) + (Tier's) (Slot) Symbol Pattern + Item
(**Item varies by Tier: Blessed = Warbone Chips; Revered = Fire Opal; Sacred = Shissar Scales; Eminent = Metallic Drake Scales)

SLOT 11 AUGMENTATION PRODUCTION (TAILORED):
(Tier's) (Armor) Symbol of (Deity Name)
Recipe = (Tier's) Water of (Deity Name) + (Tier's) (Slot) Symbol Pattern + Item
(**Item varies by Tier: Blessed = Silk Swatch; Revered = Drachnid Silk Swatch; Sacred = Nightmare Arachnid Swatch; Eminent = Glossy Drake Hide)

Did Quests but was still stuck until...

I haven't seen any posts addressing this so I thought I'd put it here to help someone else.

I did all the quests for my level in my home city, got the special items for the combine and then went to the special forge and still couldn't combine the items. It said I still needed to know something.

After reading all the very confusing outdated information everywhere I finally figured out I needed one more book.

For my race it was, Compendium of Drakkin Cultural Crafting. Insert your race for Drakkin. I had to open that book and inside was a button labeled scribe. I clicked that and I was good to go.
Books?

Hopefully someone catches this, but how do I get Simple Book, Ornate Book, Intricate Book, and Elaborate Book?

All I get is quests for the symbols, but I can't figure out how to get another book. I'm level 37.

It's an old style quest not a task. Read the dialog, it says what you need to give to them. It is the same NPC that gives the symbol tasks. You can look up the quest under related quests to left for your race to see most the dialog for the quest and what items you need to get.

That's the thing, he gives me the same stuff as if I was asking for the regular Ancestral book. I tried that. Does that eventually change?

Sorry for asking but it is quite confusing.

From the Wood Elf Cultural Armor page:

Quote:
Find Calian Silverlake in Kelethin, location +942, +660.

You say, 'Hail, Calian Silverlake'

Calian Silverlake says 'Ah, the blessings of Tunare upon you _____. Perhaps you have come in search of lessons on how to create some new [armor]? Or maybe it was to hear a bit about the natural world and our history?'

You say, 'What armor?'

Calian Silverlake says 'I thought you might be interested in my new [designs], your current armor looks a bit worn. I've recently discovered a way of crafting the essence of the natural world into my armor pieces. Armor crafted in this manner comes out better than anything the elders have seen before. You may also be interested in the [runes] I have discovered for these armor pieces.'

You say, 'What designs?'

Calian Silverlake says 'I suppose I could share a book of my designs with you, but I cannot give you mine. It's the only copy I have! I'll make you a deal though, if you can bring me the [materials] to create a new book I'll make a copy for you to use.'

You say, 'What runes?'

Calian Silverlake says 'These runes can be quite complicated to create but are well worth the effort. They serve to enhance the natural forces in the armor and can bring untold benefits when put to use by a skilled crafter. If you're interested, I would be willing to give you instructions on how to create these runes in exchange for your [help].'

You say, 'What materials?'

Calian Silverlake says 'I'll need a some zombie skin and darkbone marrow from the Estate of Unrest. I can use those to create the cover and ink for the book. I'll also need some of the battle beads from Crushbone to help bind the book and a rotting orc tooth to complete the ink. Once I have those I will have a copy made for you.'


Hand in the items.

You receive Ancestral Wood Elven Armor.


Each one has a keyword (like materials in this example), that will tell you what you need. It may be different than materials in different races. If you're still having trouble what race are you doing?

Yther Ore.

Yther Ore.


I'm doing the High Elf. And when I ask the keyword "Interested" he only gives me the stuff about the original Ancestral Armor with the marrow, tooth, beads and zombie skin.

That's why I don't understand about getting the Simple Book, Ornate Book, Intricate Book, and Elaborate Book. I came back at level 40, still same text as my origina book.

That's why I'm confused. Do I get the same stuff hand it in, and he gives me an updated book? Or is it something different I am missing?

Thanks for the help.

Yep, just hand in those 4 items and you get the book. It's the same book for tiers of armor, as they all use the same racial pattern, it's template and loam / marrow / spinneret that change for different tiers. See http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=34132 and all the recipes it's used in, as well as the recipe to make it, uses the same book you get back.

Hope this clears it up, :)

You're welcome. Good Luck. And maybe the wiki page at http://everquest.allakhazam.com/wiki/EQ:Cultural_Armor may be of some use. It's missing the differences on the highest end (80+) stuff, but since you're premium you can look the recipes up here.

Yea. First you make a Crude Siolk Robe Template, then you make, if you haven't already the Pattern for High Elven Tunics along with the other patterns, then you need to make the Ornate Starglow Robe. If the alla recipes are too confusing, you might look them up at EQTraders at http://eqtraders.com/items/show_item.php?item=18474&menustr=035000000000

Prior to making the stuff, you'll have to gather the Dropped and Store Bought items. Even if your skill is over the trivial expect to fail at least 5% of the time (alot more, if you're close or less than the trivial in skill level).

Well, handed the items in and got ANOTHER Ancestral Book. No Simple one or anything different.

*sigh* I don't understand what I'm doing wrong. I'll do more reading.

What do you give the NPC for High Elf HQ armor to get the level 40 Ornate book? If not a book do I just use different materials of a different tier?

ADD:

Okay with the link you gave me I think I figured it out.

The 4 items handed in gives a book to get the templates you need in case you run out. That doesn't change.

The Blessed ornaments are separate and able to be made each 10 levels after 30.

With the armor, you use the chart you linked for me, and put the appropriate parts in.

So for High Elf Ornate, I'd need Crude Silk in comparison to Sullied silk at level 30 and below.

Is that what I need to do?

Correct, and I wish I would of caught that you were thinking there were multiple armor books right away. It's confusing how there are multiple symbol books, but only one armor book. Once you get it figured out though, the chart helps alot to keep it straight.

Also, don't follow exactly what is here in this quest write-up, but rather what the recipes show, either here or on EQTraders. The info in this quest is from when it originally came out, and has been revamped / overhauled at least once since then. Well, one major overhaul, then some changes with the higher level gear sequences. I haven't added the higher level changes to the chart yet, but they're pretty minor, if you look up the recipes.

Good luck!

How to get Second, Third, Forth Tier book quests?

Received the first tier book for the Dark Elf armor, but can not figure out how to receive the next tier quest, he only gives out the quest I just completed and augment quests. I have ally faction with him.
Smithing Level Needed
# Jun 15 2008 at 2:00 AM Rating: Decent
You need to have a smithing skill level of 300 to be able to do the Exalted Symbols or Sublime Symbols. This is needed to buy the book from vendors outside the library on the left side in POK. I had thought when I finished the quest and gotten the patterns for the exalted symbols, that I was done.


So you need to do the exalted quest from you home city, skill to 300, buy parchment on exalted(from vendor in pok or cresent reach - a cultural discoveries historian) to do the exalted or sublime symbols. It seem you can make the armor without having to buy the parchment. I didn't comfirm this on Elegant though.

Good luck.

The Symbols (Augmentations)

Symbols can be made by anyone of any deity in any culture's forge or sewing kit.

SYMBOL PATTERN PRODUCTION:
Inside a Book Binding (bought from local vendors), produce (Tier's) (Slot) Symbol Pattern:
Recipe = (Tier's) Book of (Race) Culture + Compacted Backpack + A Quill + Large Bottle of Ink + Roll of Vellum
(**Quality of Vellum varies by Tier: Blessed = Roll; Revered = Good; Sacred = High Quality; Eminent = Superb)

Add Exalted = Superb

After handing in the pattern book today and tell the Halas guy "what armor patterns?":
Kjell Sunrunner says ''Well then, player. Now that the Fellroon is dead,a tribute is important. Take this impression book and make impressions of certain parts of critters that you slay in your heroic deeds. This magical book can make impression of objects with depth to them or just of the pattern of the surface of an object. Take as many of the tasks I offer you as you would like.

Then he offered several tasks called xxx impressions, with several difficulties up to Direwind and Fortress Mechanotus; picked one, (you can take as many as you wish).

Blessed impression:
Kill 20 froglok Gaz - 0/20 -Upper Guk
Make impressionsof the froglok Gaz head patterns - 0/5 - Upper Guk
Kill 10 crag spiders - 0/10 - East Karana
Make impressions of the crag spiders carapaces - 0/2 - East Karana
- Reward: Blessed Book of Barbarian Culture

Revered impressions
To find the patterns that will inspire you, you will need to kill sabretooth tigers in Trakanon, and drolvarg ragers in the Dreadlands. The patterns you will need are in the teeth of the sabretooth and the symbols on the shoulder armor of the drolvarg rages .

Sacred Impressions
To find the patterns that will inspire you, you will need to kill Chetari warriors in Dragon Necropolis, and Lictors in the Heart of Sanctus Seru. The patterns you will need are the tooth impressions of the Chetari warriors and the breastplate symbols of the Lictors of the Heart.

Eminent Impressions
To find the patterns that will inspire you, you will need to kill strong sentinels in Thundercrest, and flameweave menders in the Nest. The patters you will need are the engraved patterns on the chest of the sentinels and the embossed patterns on the bracers of the flameweave menders.

Exalted Impressions
To find the patterns that will inspire you, you will need to kill Darkroot shaman in Direwind, and adult mammoths in Icefall. The patterns you will need are totems that the Darkroot shaman imbed in their body and the shape of the molars of the adult mammoths.

Darkhollow Geode
Find a large Darkhollow Geode and bring it back.
- loot one Darkhollow Geode
- ?
Reward: Seals of Darkhollow

I got curious, after getting the molds part done, I made some bars out of metallic drake scales.....I was able to pop out a elaborate bracer 1st try with no questing or anything for the books. Is it really this easy now?

After making all these things to skill up on ... there is almost no market for these items to other players (selling at cost), the vendors will not buy them, and they cannot be offered as tribute. This is a lot of work doing the quests, farming the ingredients, and a lot of plat spent on items that I ended up destroying to make room in my inventory
BAH!

Only certain things are tributable. For example, the Slot 11 (cultural) augments you make using the skill-up path outlined on EQ traders (at least between Skill 201 and up to Skill 258, which is as far as I've gotten) are NOT tributable. They are also not sellable. So, basically, it's either make outdated cultural armor which nobody uses just so you can have a spot for these augments, or just hit the destroy button once you make the augments and lament the waste.

I'm loving my return to EQ for the most part, but Sony REALLY needs to look at this type of thing LOL. It's a complete disincentive to do tradeskills.

Well the Quest from Elistar for the High Elf journeymens book for Augs is broken. I have /bugged this but figured I would pass it along on here if anyone cares. You are required to kill sharks in OOT but guess what?? no sharks in oot .. 4 days with a 72 ranger to track .. even after the patch and Nadda =/ I'm not one to take offense but thats just wrong, and whats worse is they know about it and still dont fix it =/

I did mine last year, so unless they changed the zone...

The sharks were the quickest of all my cultural drops. Straight off the dock, directly after zoning in. Keep hitting the "target next mob" button...

On quest pages, the expansion icon indicates the era in which the quest was introduced. Compare this to item pages, where the expansion icon tends to indicate that the expansion is required to obtain the item.

I am a Vah Shir, one of the lucky few classes that is able to use Shissar Scales for tailoring combines. I have made several sets of molds and now a set or two of patterns and soon my book will poof. What is involved in getting a new book? Do I need to hail him again, get a new quest then get the stuff or can I just farm it now in prep for when that will happen, then just hand him the stuff and he give me a replacement book?

Help. I'm have my "Journeyman's Cultural Armor Book" and now am working on the "Expert's Book". I killed the 50 Gnome Miners and looted 10 Gnome Meat (I read that the gnome meat requirement have been reduced from 20 to 10). I tried giving the meat to Dosan Vis'Moor as directed, but nothing happened. Since only 4 items can be given to NPC at anyone time, I gave "4", "4", and 2 (3 gives). Didn't work. I spend 2 more hours back in Solusek to get 10 more gnome meats and can't figure out how to give them to him. I hailed him hoping that would work, but it didn't. Any suggestions -- what am I doing wrong? Is this quest broken"?
