You say, 'Hail, Garadain Glacierbane'

Garadain Glacierbane says 'Hrmff, what's this? A spy sent from the giant heathens, or the selfrighteous wurms perhaps? Either way, you'd be no [friend] of the great Coldain.'

You say, 'I am a friend.'

Garadain Glacierbane says 'A friend, you say? That remains to be seen. Much more to being a friend of the Coldain than just sayin' so. Anyway, I'm too [tired] to argue about it. I haven't slept in days.'

You say, 'Why are you tired?'

Garadain Glacierbane says 'Did I say tired? Exhausted is more like it. Ever since that blizzard last week I haven't slept a wink. I came back from huntin' snow orcs to find that my [blanket] had blown away and now I'm just too tired to rustle up a new one.'

You say, 'What blanket?'

Garadain Glacierbane says 'Not just any old blanket, mind ye, mine was made of the finest tundra kodiak hides and snow panther skins, two of each. When I was wrapped up in it ya couldn't see me a bit, no, I blended right into the snow, I did. Say, if you be a friend, here's yer chance to prove it. Sew me up a new blanket so I can get some rest.'

Garadain's blanket must be made from two High Quality Cougarskins (rare drops from A Snow Cougar) and two High Quality Tundra Kodiak Pelts (rare drops from A Tundra Kodiak). Tailor them together to craft a Coldain Hunting Blanket (trivial 41) and give this to Garadain.

Garadain Glacierbane says 'Ahh, that'll do fine. Take this, it is but a trinket for now, but continue to serve the Coldain and it will grow in power. I must get some rest now, for I have been told my [nephew] has disappeared again and I will need to track him down tomorrow.'
Your faction standing with Coldain could not possibly get any better.
Your faction standing with Dain Frostreaver IV got better.
Your faction standing with Kromzek got worse.
Your faction standing with Kromrif could not possibly get any worse.
You gain experience!!

Ugh... got my first HQ Kodiak pelt on 2nd kill....... and the next one about 500 kills later no exaggeration - do NOT NOT NOT try this combine unless you have tailoring skill to trivialit - one of worst drop rates Ive ever seen, or else the RNG just hates me :*(

I recently started this quest and it took me roughly 6 hours to find 8 HQ Kodiak and 6 HQ Cougar skin. Made my combine attempt first at 51 tailoring skill and failed. Tried a second time and it worked.

I found most of the Cougars are in the northen part of the zone in the center of the map. Not sure if this is their "area" but this is just where I encounterd most of them.

There is one thing that you should know up front. Yea, the ds does stack with druid ds, but it is overwritten by any potion ds. In most write ups, the ds is reported as stacking with anything, so just know that it isn't. I had set out to do this quest with my shammy just to add some more dmg to my overall ds and was severely disappointed when my potions overwrote this effect. Yea, it will still come in handy now and then, but I wouldn't have gone to the effort to do this if I had known in advance..

I've been 5 for 5 on these blankets in the past week with a tailoring skill of 66. Unless I've had some incredible luck with the RNG, I'd have to guess the trivial is lower than 66.

Just made this today. Upped my tailoring skill with some spare spider silks to 12 then did the mandrake roots untill 65. Got blanket on first try. The recipe for woven mandrake (2 mandrake roots combined) wasn't coming up on the loom menu, so I combined them, then saved the recipe The mandrake roots are available at the alchemist supplier seven's o'danos. He is upstairs in the same building as loom. Quick, easy way to get to skill level 66 in tailoring.

...tailoring is to go to POK vendor & buy several stacks of mandrake roots (about 44p per stack). combine 2 of them, unstacked of course, in your sewing kit. it will get you up to 66. you can sell back the combines OR use them to make misty thicket picnics. (learned all this from guild mate & tried it out so know it works. thanks for the tip, balauk! *grin*)

If you have Discord, you can get all tradeskills up to 50 for free. There's an npc near the merchants of each skill on the ship in Abysmal. They'll hand you the components needed (which will also flag you for being able to do Discord combines). For tailoring, find Tonlyei Lyhin.

A trivial of 41 just means you can no longer improve your skill by making it once your skill is 41. You still have about a 1/3 chance of failing at skill 41. The 5% fail rate you've heard about is when your skill is very much higher than the triv. (Though the formulas got changed a bit so that if your skill is a LOT higher your chance of failure might even go below 5%.)

Do ring 2 and ring 4, hold the axe from ring 2 for now.

Collect:
2 High Quality Tundra Kodiak Pelts
2 High Quality Cougarskins
high quality walrus hide
Wooly Rhino Horn
Skinning Rock

Tailor up the blanket for ring 1 and smith the knife for ring 3.

Trade off to your MQ partner (shared bank if an alt) the smithed knife for quest 3 and the coldain hammer from quest 4.

Turn in the blanket and get ring 1, turn it in with the axe and get ring 2. Now turn in ring 2 then let your MQ partner turn in the knife to finish ring 3 and use that plus the hammer you gave him to do ring 4...voila!

That's as far as I got so far, I'll post more info if I find tricks for ring 5 and above.

#flutterbye, Posted: Jul 05 2003 at 4:35 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I collected all 4 pelts and didnt fail with only 34 trade skill... how? iwith KEI. higher wis=less fail rate higher int= more chance to raise the skill. trivial is 35 btw. Also took me 103 kodiaks to get one pelt which sucked so i bought the next one for 700pp(usually cost about 300pp)

this post is total BS, moderators please remove this false information before it misleads someone. the only thing that affects fail rate is your skill lvl compared to trivial of the item you are trying to make. higher wisdom nore any other stat will change you fail rate. the chance to raise skill on tailoring is the HIGHER of intel or wisdom

This is the best, fastest and cheapest way to raise Tailoring.

Buy Large sewing kit, 2 stacks of gorget patterns and 2 stacks of tunic patterns. Go to any Newbie area and loot Spiderling silk and combine as you go in sewing kit. Save up around 4 stacks of threads. My choices: Misty Thicket (stay on paths), or EC near huts closest to Freeport zone. Then go to Marus Seru and kill Grey Rock Hoppers, loot and save ALL pelts dropped (and no-drop eggs for another quest). Combine as you loot full stacks so you can see some progress.

To raise any higher you will need many HQ pelts and smithing trivial at 37.

Silk thread-combine 2 Spiderling silk (or Shadeling) [trivial 15]
Leather Padding-silk thread, LQ rockhopper pelt [trivial 31]
greyhopper armor-greyhopper hide, pattern (mask, gorget, wristband, sleeve, gloves, belt, boot, shoulderpad, helmet, cloak) [trivial 88] or 2 greyhopper hides, pattern (tunic, pants) [trivial 95]

7 Rings Doable in 1 Night
# Apr 17 2003 at 11:01 AM Rating: Excellent
Scholar
30 posts
I started this quest 3 days ago and am now on Ring 7. By gathering the drop items ahead of time (3 hours solo work), I (60 Pally) was able to do the first 5 rings in one night (2.5 hours) with a 53 Cleric buddy and two rangers in the zone (levels 51 & 52) who helped with the fights for Ring 4 & 5. The 6th and 7th ring could have easily been completed that same night had I done my research and been prepared (I passed up Rodrick, a rare spawn, and had to wait 3 days to eventually Multiquest his head to finish Ring#6).

Here's how first 7 Rings can be done in one night with one group or partial group (Low 50's):

Part 1: Gather ALL these ITEMS ahead of time (Solo Work) then get a group together and the first 7 rings can be completed in 4-5 hours.

Needed for Ring 1
- 2 HQ Cougar Skins (Bazaar - 20pp each) or in EW
- 2 HQ Tundra Kodiak Pelts - Farmed one (spawn near IceClad Bridge), and purchased second for 200pp from someone in zone.
- combined to make blanket ahead of time (succeeded with skill 75 Tailoring - trivial apparently 41 - failed on my first attempt with 44 skill)

Needed for Ring 3
- High Quality Walrus Hide - bazaar 10pp
- Wooly Rhino Horn (tusk) - farmed one near Orc camp. Try OOC...many people have them.
- Skinning Rock (no drop) - lots on ground near Iceclad bridge and also one seems to spawn regularly near the first tree out from Rygorr Fort entrance
- combined in forge to make knife

Needed for Ring 5
- Invasion Plans (drop off Rygorr Messenger) Fluked upon Messenger and killed him while doing 2nd ring. The Invasion Plans can also be bought in Bazaar for 20-40 pp. Aquire them ahead of time.

Ring 6
- Rodrick's Head (no drop)- Rodrick spawns by hut outside of Rygorr Fort entrance (neg 3500, pos 900) after the spawn of Rygorr Emissary. This spawn appears to be broken at this time - ***See note below***

Part 2: Actual Handins and Fights
After gathering the items for the first 5 rings on my own (took about 3hours), the actual handins for the first 5 rings took 2.5 hours, with the first 3 rings being done with just me and 53 Cleric in about 1 hour.

Unfortunately, I hadn't researched the 6th ring and passed up killing Rodrick who was up while I quested the first 5 (I didn't know who he was). Had I aquired Rodrick's Head that same night, our group could easily have done the next 2 rings in about another 1.5 hours. Thus, the first 7 rings are doable in one night with one group in about 4-5 hours.

***Note***: Currently, Rodrick spawn appears to be broken and he only pop's after patch, server crash, or reset. After monitoring the spawn with some others over the next 3 days, Rodrick and Emissary were never seen. Fortunately, Ring 6 is Multiquestable, which is how I ended up completing it. Did an OOC in PoK and generous 52 Monk had head in bank and did the Hand in with me.

Hope this helps and saves you some time.

This is a great post, but you gotta edit this, the ring 3 uses a high quality walrus hide not a flawless. I been killing in EW for 3 hours now looking for a flawless (I was just going by your post cause its soo good), I must have destroyed a dozen or more high quality walrus hides. Then I went and looked at the actual quest here on all and it says high quality.

If you want to get your tailoring up quickly. Combine 2 mandrake roots bought in SH downstairs in the Beastlord guild I think.

40p a stack for mandrake roots. combine 2 in a tailoring kit can be used for a later combine for higher level stuff... you can sell the result in the bazaar for other skills.

Trivial at 66 for this combine...

Just as an FYI, mandrake root is sold in the stout quarter of Shadow Haven. If you use your map (you have LoY right?) you can see there are two alchemy vendors in the trainer building for naturish types. The female sells the mandrake root.

So I'm working on my Coldain Faction for Thurg armor quests AND am also commencing my coldain ring/shawl quests.

Just curiuos of the relative faction improvements of killing FG's and drakkel wolves vs. doing the various ring/shawl quests. Am I going to get faction ups quicker one way or another?

I spent a couple of days getting tradeskills up high enough for the coldain rings. 3 hours in EK collecting 194 silks, then another 3 hours in Shadowhaven working on smithing. A great spot for this is in the far end away from the nexus, near the Paludal Caverns. There is a forge with molds and ore. There is also a vendor with bottles and water flasks nearby.

I picked up my HQ cougar skins in Iceclad, then killed roughly 17 Kodiaks before I got 2 HQ pelts.

My tailoring was 44 when I did the combine. I had Brilliance and was running Cassindra's Elegy with Amplification to get my int and wis up above 90. I got the trivial message when it succeeded.

Is everyone else also having the problem of getting High Quality Kodiack Pelts. I've been hunting them for almost a week, killing maybe an average of 25-35 a night and havne't gotten one HQ pelt. Although I have a ton of Ruined, Low, and Medium Quality. Any recommondations or suggestions on how to get them? Yes, I have tried the bazaar and no one, for the moment, is selling them.

Both int and wis help raise skill. Dex helps with fletching, tailoring. Str with smithing and jewelcraft.

Actually your a bit off there. Let me enlighten you.
1st and foremost you need Wisdom/Intelligence to gain skill ups in ANY trade, the higher is used when checking skill ups.
There are secondary skill up checks for tradeskilling. there are as follow
Smithing= Strength
Fletching= Dexterity

There are NO other secondary skill checks to Tailoring, Baking, Jewelcraft, ect..
Tailoring DOES NOT check on dexterity , this is a very old rumor that was put to rest by VI very long agao.. cant believe people are still spreading this.. VI instated these secondary checks for melee characters that dont normally have high int/wis, and giving them a fair chance at tradeskilling in smithing and fletching.
Int and Wis tho are your primary checks for skill ups, now if you are smithing and your STRENTH is higher than your int/wis then strenth will be used to base you skill ups on..
Dexterity for fletching, ... Get it now?

I am well qualified fulltime tradeskiller
200 smithing
200 brewing
193 Tailoring
187 Jewelcraft
192 pottery
178 baking

Actually (at least for smithing) your highest stat be it int/wis/or str determines how likely it is that you will gain a skillup. This question was answered at a fan faire awhile ago.

No. He didn't say the same thing. The check on STR in Smithing is NOT a secondary check. It is an alternative to WIS or INT. There is a similar situation in Fletching, where the highest of WIS/INT/DEX is used in skill-ups.

The Great Divide kodiaks are Feral Cave Kodiaks, not Tundra; no substituting them will not work (though i wish there were as many kodiaks in EW as there are in GD).

There is no reason why the toughest ring should be the first.

To my knowledge, they only drop in EW.

As for the skill required for this...I have was sitting in Thurg, wondering how the **** I was going to combine the pelts with a skill of 26. I thought of all the silks I had to collect to raise skill..then said ***** it and hit combine in my Coldain Tanner's kit.

It worked. At skill 26. Go figure.

Tailoring skill was 36. It was NOT trivial. But I managed to fashion the blanket.

Worked my tailoring skill up to 36 mainly by farming spiders in upper guk. Very nice spawn ration to silks.

Garadain was located in some dwarf huts near the Ry'Gorr village in EW.

Can't wait to progress in these quests towards the greater rings.

Some general information:
It seems the common belief right now that the only thing that affects chances of success when combining an item is your skill level in that tradeskill. The highest of your wisdom and intelligence determines the chances of raising your skill while combining, while strength becomes a part of the formula in Smithing, and dexterity - in fletching.
Nothing is 100% verified yet, but from my experience, seems like my Wisdom (I'm a Druid) only affected the chances of skill raising while combining.
There was a former belief that INT determines chances of skill raise and WIS determines chances of success, but that has been proven wrong.

This can no longer be MQ'ed. If your tailor gives the first item to Garadain he gives it straight back with the "I don't need this" message. Many items that were MQ can no longer be MQ'ed.
RE: MQ
# Jun 24 2002 at 2:51 PM Rating: Default
To my understanding 2 HQ kodiak pelts and 2 HQ snow courgar pelts have to be combined (tailoring) to a blanket, and the blanket is to be hand in. So there can be no MQ, since its only one piece to hand in.

I have me skill to 50 and have 135 wisdom. I failed to combine the items for the blanket. It said I did not have the skill. It is NOT trivial at skill 50 so dont waist yer kodiak pelts. Try it at a skill of 82 like the quest says up above. I'll post what happens when i get me skill up that high.

You can fail making trivial items. When you fail making an item you will only get the "You lacked the skill" message - NOT an eventual "You cannot improve your skill"/trivial-message.

Even if you had tailoring at 250 and failed making the blanket (which becomes trivial at 41), you would get a message saying you lacked the skill.
#Anonymous, Posted: May 22 2002 at 8:09 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Your talking crap man, becomes trivial at 41 skill for a start, ring has unlimited charges and its not 2 hours of giants

I tried the combine with a skill of 40 - failed but got a skill up from it (no trivial message), tried again with 41, succeeded and got the trivial message.

Yes, this can be multiquested. Give the pelts to a tailor, who makes the blanket for you. He then gets the first ring. After finishing the second quest, the tailor turns the first ring in to Garadain, and you then turn in the broken axe and receive ring 2.

I suggest finishing ring 2 first to avoid having the tailor run to EW twice.
Ring Wars?

Is this part of the ring wars? my guild is thinking of doing this and i am wanting to get information. I saw on the quest list for this zone it had all these (#1)(#2)....(#7) and so on listing. are these are part of it? Please help me so i can relay the information to my guild. TY
RE: Ring Wars?
# May 28 2002 at 1:21 AM Rating: Default
Yup, this is the early part of the ringwar. Similar to the Coldain Prayer Shawl quests, you must complete all of the ring quests in numerical order.

After 55 attempts at making cured silk, my tailoring skill raised from 36 to 44. At that point I decided to try the blanket and succeded as well as received the trivial message. Not sure if 44 is the minimum skill for the trivial message, but the blanket is indeed trivial at this skill level. Hope this helps.
lack the skill?
# Apr 21 2002 at 1:58 PM Rating: Default
does lack the skill mean that i need to train the points into it? or do i just need to try again,cause i didnt what to waste my money and lose another set of pelts. Cant quite figure out the whole process of it...oh well. Would appreciate some help on this. Thank you!
RE: lack the skill?
# Apr 23 2002 at 10:49 PM Rating: Default
Just means you failed, give it another shot.
RE: lack the skill?
# Apr 26 2002 at 7:07 AM Rating: Default
Dont listen to the one above. Yes, you can have the skill and it say you you lack it. But the chance of making one while "you lack the skill" is quite high. probably around 30:1.. I am a lvl 28 so i dunno how much 2400pp os to people as high as you'll, but i do tailoring and i know how to tailor pretty well. Don't waste money on expensive eplts for quests. Use cheaper items that you can raise the skill with. Start out combining 2 spidreling silks. You should end up with a silk swatch i think. The when you max that out combine the silk swatches with patterns of armor. The when that is maxed out go to ek and kill graig spiders and co,mbine there spider silk 2 at a time. This is as high as my skill goes sorry. But you may also be able to combine bb gnoll pelts.

Even if you have a skill of 178 and the item is trivial at 40, if you fail you Still get the "you lack the skill" message, so the person above you May be correct, however it sounds like the origional poster has NO skill what-so-ever in tailoring. So yes, go train your tailoring either by spending points in it or practicing your skill as this person suggests. All recipe's can be found at www.eqtraders.com in their tailoring section. I would suggest skipping the leather and sticking with silk and cured silk to skill. Spider silks are very easy to get. If you are of the level to do this quest go to East Karana and kill spiders there, they drop the most per kill, generally. And they should be very green by this point.

Smithing to 115 in 3 hours on 200 plat is easy (with good merchant faction in Freeport). You just smith a whole crap load of metal bits and make skewers. They trivial at 115.

HQ Tundra pelts must be kinda rare. On TP server ppl auction to buy these for 200P+ (seen 500p once) - nice income for a mid 30's Ranger who can track and solo these things. 200-500p is scratch for lvl 60 peeps tho.

The HQ Tundra Kodiak pelts _are_ fairly rare, they were the most difficult part of the quest. I spent about 4 hours hunting them near the IC bridge before I got 2 - but they were within 20 minutes of each other.

Combined the quest piece at 111 no sweat.

Umm how could it be a 'nice income' if they're 'kinda rare'? Seems like it would just be a lucky one-time money shot.

Your ignorance is showing. Number 1.)Rangers TRACK things. Makes finding creatures that drop certain items Much easier. 2.)All he has to do is find 2 HQ pelts, and if he can sell them for 500pp, he's a k richer. Why don't you THINK before you post. It'll save space and prevent confusion. Oh, I forgot, your a warrior. You CAN'T think. hehe

Sounds to me like you have the right items. If they are called pelts or hides isn't really all that important - the HQ part is.

One type of the pelts/hides is stackable, the other is not - cannot remember which is which, though

Just to clear it up for those who haven't seen any yet, the cougar hides are not stackable, the kodiak pelts are. Hope this helps someone.

I just succeeded at the combining of the 4 pelts (or skins, whatever) with a tailoring skill of 36.
I didn't get the trivial message.

Ok, simple soultion to a VERY Simple problem, this should solve all of your problems at once =)

WHEN DOING A TRADESKILL, WAIT TILL YOU HAVE TWICE THE SKILL NEEDED FOR A QUEST COMBINE!!!!

;)

that should get you the results you are looking for, so, if it indeed is 42, then wait till you're at 84 skill, really not that hard to do for such a LONG Quest, and if you don't think you can handle waiting that long, then just don't do the quest at All, you aren't ready for "Ubah lewts"
these ring quests will take you to lvl 60, and beyond, the 10th ring i have only seen 4 people get, they were ALL lvl 60, with VERY Large lvl 55+/59+ guilds.. it takes a WHOLE LOT to do these quests, as the rewards are Massive, so is the Effort you will need to put into it, best to wait till 45+ to start the first one, when you're sittin around in a **** level that's annoyin yah, take some time an work on some trade skills, i was mastered in 5 trades before level 40, just cause i was bored, an know what, now, i can make a few Kpp a day if i really wanted to just be a trade/EC junkie, i prefer to do quests, and hang out with friends tho, and with these skills, i can do the Thurg quests, Pottery to mastery = 1 hour (around 50pp), smithing to mastery = about 3 hours (around 200pp), baking to mastery = about 2 hours (around 30-50pp), brewing to Mastery = about 2 or 3 hours (around 150pp), Fletching to mastery = 2 LONG hours (about 150pp), really doesn't take much, just a little research, and question asking in game even, i didn't have to to to some web site to learn how to get the skills mastered, haven't taken the time to master tailoring, or j/c yet, but hay, there's plenty of time for that soon enough, trade mastery's empower you with a sense of worth, makes yah look good when you can:
/auc master Brewer/fletcer/baker/potter, LFJob... you tend to get few tells offa that ;)
Have fun, and best of wishes to you on those skills needed for the Thurg quests, those quests can get you some Very nice items :)

I failed at 36, so it CAN fail. HQ tundra kodiak pelts aren't as rare as people say though -- I got 2 in 3 kills and a total of 3 after only killing maybe 15 kodiaks.

Well After hunting kodiaks for four hours, and finally paying 300pp for the final kodiak pelt I was missing, I tried to do the quest with 27 Tailoring, and I failed. So let my misfortune be a warning to you all, just cause others dont fail, doesnt mean your not going to.

The pelts are not no drop. The blanket itself is no drop, but this quest can be multiquested together with Ring 2.

Kodiaks
# Nov 27 2001 at 2:18 PM Rating: Default
When you kill a kodiak it is not always replaced with another kodiak. It can be replaced with a snow cougar, dervish, dire wolf, whatever. What this means is that if you run around killing nothing but kodiaks, they will eventually get replaced with other stuff (that you are not killing) so kodiaks will gradually become more and more rare.

If you are having trouble finding them just start killing everything in sight. When stuff starts to repop you should begin finding a decent number of kodiaks again.

This is why there are so many kodiaks right after a patch, and so few a week later.
