This is a shared task (1-3 players) that was introduced in October 2010 and is available every year around Halloween.

It begins with a dwarf named Illis Taberish at about 300, 350 in the Plane of Knowledge (near the main bank).

You say, 'Hail, Illis Taberish'

Illis Taberish says 'Tis coming, [coming] to take yer souls! And den it be too late!'

You say, 'What's coming?'

Illis Taberish says 'Da [Skinwalker] o'course! Yer worst nightmare in da flesh! It takes yer soul ana' takes yer very being.'

You say, 'Skinwalker?'

Illis Taberish says 'Nobody knows where it comes from. At dis point, I tink it matters not. But I knows what I seen, ana' I knows [evil] when I sees it!'

You say, 'Evil?'

Illis Taberish says 'Vile an' despicable tings it does to one ana' all! But stopped it can be! Gather da shards its dark soul forms when it takes o'er a body, ana' [bring] dem back to me. I can take it from dere. Den, we can put a stop to dis creature!'

You say, 'I'll bring them to you'

Illis Taberish says 'Yous must head to da Field of Scale ana find da skinwalker in whatever form 'tis taken. Destroy its shell and retrieve da shard. Once yous 'ave da best number o' shards, bring dem to me. We just might beat dis ting yet!'

You have been assigned the task 'Terror of Illis Taberish'.

Illis Taberish is terrified of the existence, and the possible increase in power, of a being he refers to as a Skinwalker. You will need to find this being and take the shards of its soul back to Illis. He is convinced that this is the only way to stop it.

Find and kill a Distorted Soul near the columns on the road to East Cabilis. Loot a piece of the Skinwalker's shard from the slain distorted soul.

This is the highest level version of the task. For lower level versions, see below.

Find and kill a distorted soul 0/1 (Field of Scale)

Find and kill a distorted soul 0/1 (Field of Scale)

Find and kill a distorted soul 0/1 (Field of Scale)

Find and kill a distorted soul 0/1 (Field of Scale)

Retrieve 4 Skinwalker Shards 0/4 (Field of Scale)

Deliver 4 Skinwalker Shards 0/4 (Plane of Knowledge)

Trebor Ollijurt, Sral Umbric, Krit Haemit, and Semaj Fetheld can be found in the Field of Scale in the vicinity of -2150, 2920, -49 (around the columns on the path leading to Cabilis).

They are outside each other's aggro ranges, stunnable, and mezzable. They each hit for a max ~5,800 and have an average amount of hitpoints.

Kill them, loot their shards, and take them to Illis to complete the task.

Illis Taberish says 'Ah! Yous 'ave da foul tings shards! A right good job yous done! Now maybe I can find a way o' makin' sure it stays gone!'

You have returned the shards to Illis before the Skinwalker could become too strong.

Tried to request this shared task with 3 toons, all level 95. NPC refused me the task with message about party level being too high. Shrouded 1 toon down to level 70 and tried again. Illis gave me the task then.

50-60 is in Barren Coast.

I don't know about the other levels, but these guys hit pretty freaking hard and seem to have way too many HP.

Oh, and you don't want to stick around on the island after nightfall, especially if you're at the lower end of the range.

Yeah, I just got my ass kicked by a blue-con in Goru'Kar Mesa. Nonnahs Serwell hits for 200-300 a pop. Conned blue to my 47 SK, so I figured it wouldn't be too bad. I don't think I got him below 80%.
cant get at 95

Shroud yourself and talk to the quest giver. He'll give it to you then. I tested this last night,

This is a group task for ONLY 3 PEOPLE -- it will not allow you to add more.

I needed a level 83 to get it as well as a 65 and a 69 so i shrouded the 83 down to 65 -- then after we all had the task, i was able to remove shroud and keep it. worked fine-- don't bring out mercs until you have the task and everyone in it.
Success comes when preparation meets opportunity -- and EQ is no exception.

The a distorted soul as a regular name. Under it, it say (a distorted soul). In the Field of Scale the npc's are named Trebor Ollijurt, Sral Umbric, Krit Haemit, and Semaj Fetheld. In Nektalos they are named Petra Grenal‏, Piolo Meesker‏, Lorna Sheecot‏, and Saldis Oro‏. I hope this helps.

At first I went to Field of Bone for some reason and didn't find the mobs and then I rechecked and saw Field of Scale. Just makeing sure you went to the right zone. I did this on an alt last night and they were there of FV.
You have to kill 4 different ones

The distorted souls respawn every 7ish minutes (it was between 7 and 10 minutes). You have to kill one of each of them so killing the same one over and over will not update the task.
