Find Master Xydoz in the Tower of Death and ask him about the Second Rank Skullcap.

You say, 'Hail, Master Xydoz'

Master Xydoz says 'What is it you seek within the tower? Could it be that you are a new apprentice? If so, you are required to don the [apprentice skullcap].'

You say, 'Tell me about the second rank skullcap'

Master Xydoz says 'Looking for the second rank skullcap? Look no further, but be prepared to earn it. I seek a [faded tapestry]. Now, too, so do you.'

You say, 'What faded tapestry?'

Master Xydoz says 'I have heard reports of such a thing found upon sarnak hatchlings. They must have scampered from the safety of their dwelling with their master's property. I would like to see this tapestry, but only when it has been mended. I need to find a necromancer who is [adept at tailoring].'

You say, 'I am adept at tailoring'

Master Xydoz says 'If you are a member of the Brood and wish to assist, you may seek out this tapestry. Find the torn and ripped pieces and take them both to a sewing kit. Return with the mended tapestry and your first rank skullcap and I shall see that you are rewarded with coin and a second rank skullcap.'

You need to acquire two pieces of the now-destroyed tapestry and repair them. The pieces are the Torn and Ripped Tapestry, which you find off of Sarnak Hatchlings as rare drops in the Lake of Ill Omen. Tailor the two pieces together (the result is a mended tapestry, not a faded one, but it works) and hand them in along with your Apprentice Skullcap - 1st Rank for your Apprentice Skullcap - 2nd Rank.

Master Xydoz says 'I must have the mended tapestry and your first circle apprentice cap before I reward you.'

Master Xydoz says 'A job well done, apprentice ____. Your fine service shall earn you the second circle apprentice skullcap. I would advise you to forget this tapestry - it is nothing more than an ancient rug of no importance.'
Your faction standing with Brood Of Kotiz got better.
Your faction standing with Legion of Cabilis got better.
You gain experience!!
You receive 10 copper from Master Xydoz.
You receive 1 gold from Master Xydoz.

Just to clarify, for those that do not know, you can fail on a trivial item. In fact, with lower level combines, you'll fail fairly often, even if you're at the trivial level (1/3rd of the time in this case). Only at skill levels 200+ or so does trivial mean "you'll succeed 95% of the time." Otherwise, you have to get your skill considerably above the trivial level in order to get a 95% success rate.

In this case, a skill of 52 (50 with geerlok) is required to get that 95% success rate.

As for me, I managed to succeed with the first combine at skill 21 (64% success rate).

All these calculations are from the EQTraders website.

Killing Sarnak hatchlings both the Torn & Ripped dropped on the southside of the Newbie area in Loio when zoning out from Cabilis.

And the Brains dropped on the West side of the Newbie area. When I started there were no Sarnak hatchlings up ... so I got a few friend and we killed everything in sight. When next spawn cycle started they were everywhere.

(8)Brains = 57 kills
(Torn & Ripped Tapestry x2 = 9 kills

# Aug 12 2004 at 6:33 PM Rating: Decent
I've found that the tapestry peices only drop on the left side as you are leaving the zone... the hatchlings here also drop brains so i'd say this is the place to hunt for quest parts :D

After about 50 kills on the right side i moved to the left and had both tapestry parts in duplicate in about 10 kills

Was fighting out there for three days on the west side. Nothing. Was going crazy had made it to level eight. Read these posts. Moved to the east side that everyone was talking about. Starting killing everything. Sarnak popped. Dropped Torn Tapestry. Another popped. Dropped Ripped. Saw a third pop and killed him outta curiousty. Torn dropped. I think that the only sarnaks that drop these two items ONLY spawn on the east side of newbie area.

I found the right side dropped the brains more often ... left side (as stated above) got the tapestry pieces. I just ran around killing everything that moved (F8 to target) and kept an eye out for the hatchlings.

Now to get tailoring up. :)

I spent the better part of 2 days killing everything that moved, including 50ish sarnak hatchlings, and had not seen one tapestry part drop. In fact I had even sent in a /bug report about this. Right as I was going to give up, and go do something else, I said what the heck lemme go see that newbie area off to the side. See, I had been killing straight out from the ruins, where all the goblin watchers, scouts, and skeletons roam. In this area I was killing blue stuff, awaiting the sarnak pops. Plenty of brains, no tapestry.

If you take an immediate left after coming into the zone at the guards, there is an area on the side with newbie stuff only in it, decaying skellies, gob whelps, and a few scouts, only cat kitties. As I started to clear this area, and lemme tell you a lvl 8 pet can really make this place look like a charnel house, I started to find the tapestry parts. I failed on my first combine at 10 training points. I then went and raised it to 23. I came back with a sewing kit, and killed killed killed everything that moved. I must have failed 4 more combines before one finally worked, and of course kindly mentioned that at 23, it was trivial.

Skullcap 2 is mine, and I have the embalming fluid made, only need the brain for the third one, then I need to level a good bit before I can start on the fourth.

Dropped 10 skill points into Tailoring - made the attempt, succeeded AND got a skill up (11).

The contents of the mended tapestry? All it says is:

"The Great Library of Kor-Sha"

Now went back to Master Xydoz and say "what is the second rank skullcap?". Put the "Mended Tapestry" and your "Apprentice Skullcap - 1st Rank" in the trade window and get back the 2nd cap.

Master Xydoz says 'I must have the mended tapestry and your first circle apprentice cap before I reward you.'
Master Xydoz says 'A job well done, apprentice Xurish. Your fine service shall earn you the second circle apprentice skullcap. I would advise you to forget this tapestry - it is nothing more than an ancient rug of no importance.'

From time to time you might want to visit the vendors in LoIO...Sometimes when the sarnak is killed it will drop either of these and the PC doesnt have any use of the item...since it isn't a no-drop item, the vendors will buy.
This is how I ended up getting them..

Grrr...I had to kill at least 50 hatchlings to get the ripped tapestry. I then went and worked my tailoring up to 28. Then I failed on the combine. I got the torn tapestry back, but I lost the danged ripped one.

I went back to LIO (everything around the hatchlings is green to me now) and killed about 20 more before I got the ripped tapestry. This time I succeeded. I guess I should consider myself lucky. I got the trivial message on the combine.

I have tailoring up to 8 and I have failed to tailor the two pieces after 6 tries. Is there a third item that needs to be combined with the ripped and torn pieces (such as silk thread or silk cord)?

no other item needed (and if you put the wrong items in, you would get a does not combine message).

Tailoring is to low to give you a decent chance of success, try working it up to 25 or so.

I have seen ripped and torn tapestries not only off of sarnack hatchlings but also being sold of merchants in LOIO, if your getting tired of hunting hatchlings try the merchants maybe you could get lucky, I completed this quest without having to kill a hatchling.

Just as a "heads up", if you fail when combining the torn and ripped tapestry pieces, you only lose the ripped piece. The torn tapestry will survive every failed attempt. Of course Murphy's Law states that every sarnak hatchling you kill following the failed attempt will give you the torn one again.

# May 08 2001 at 6:03 PM Rating: Default
HeHe it also says that after you get one of the two parts you will find that part every kill for the next like 10 drops of the tapestry
Need to Hand in TWO Things!
# Dec 26 2000 at 3:57 AM Rating: Default
Just so you know, you need to hand in BOTH the tapestry and your 1st rank skullcap in order to get your 2nd rank skullcap. Other than that, you can probably fullfill both the 1st and 2nd rank quests at the same time since they drop off of the same creature.

Just wondering what this has to do with the quest. The reward you get when finished the quest is a second rank skullcap with no modifiers othen than AC.
1 st cap
# Dec 10 2000 at 11:03 PM Rating: Default
..you need the tapestry and the first cap
or...
# Nov 27 2000 at 8:33 AM Rating: Default
do you also need your 1st level skull cap as well as the mended tapestry?
RE: or...

You need BOTH the mended tapestry and the 1st level skullcap. I didn't realize this and gave Master Xydoz just the tapestry. The response was that he needs both, yet he kept the tapestry. Since then I have only had both tapestry pieces once, and failed in creating the mended tapestry.
Why do so few know this...

Sorry about mispost..hit enter on accident

anyways, people need to realize, just because you forgot to hand something in all at the same time, doesn't mean you're sol, you still have plenty of time to finish handing items in. Ever notice how sometimes it only takes 2 scorp pincers to get the quest? or 1 watcher torch? it's because the guy who handed items in before you handed in an odd number and the quest was left over. In bigger quests later on this is done purposefully, it's called Multi-Questing.

So, if you ever hand something and forgot something else, just go run and get it and bring it back to hand it in, you'll get your reward.
I've done it before, handed in wrong kind of Dufrenite to quest barb and ran back home to get another one and gave to ogre to crush and everything, went back to barb handed in right kind of dufrenite for the totemic :)

This went easy for me. I got the ripped part off the sarnaks and the torn from a tailor in the lake of Ill Omen zone. With a tailoring skill of 5 I got it on the first try. Luck perhaps but..
OK quest for 5th Level

I didn't mind the quest so much as getting the lvl to put it into tailoring...but I needed the excuse anyway.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 18 2000 at 6:03 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I've raised my Tailoring skill to the default 21 or 22 you can get it to via training. Is that enough to mend the tapestry (give or take a couple of fails)?

The mended tapestry only requires 1 tailoring skill point to succeed. It is considered to be one of the two easiest tailoring jobs.

RE: Tailoring Level to Mend Tapestry

I would assume it's the silk swatch from two spider silks, which never fails to my knowledge.
RE: Tailoring Level to Mend Tapestry
# Jul 17 2001 at 9:28 AM Rating: Default
Oh ANYTHING can fail -(. When my barbarian shammy decided to do a bit of tailoring he even failed at skill level 10 to create them. Of curse being a barbarian i'm not surprised he failed at it, but Iksars wouldn't be more suited at tailoring than Barbarians, would they? :-)
RE: Tailoring Level to Mend Tapestry
# Aug 21 2001 at 2:56 PM Rating: Default
Sorry but making spider swatches NEVER fails. Go ahead and have your shammy try to make one at with ZERO tailoring and he will not fail.
Guaranteed!

sorry, i've failed at making silk swatches. It's the Silk Threads (2 spiderLING silks) that seems never to fail. However, no matter what skill level you are, there is ALWAYS a chance to fail.

It just happened again. He combined the Torn & Ripped pieces, and we got a message saying he had failed at making the Mended Tapestry but had made the alternate product of a Torn Tapestry.

Courteous
# Oct 12 2000 at 3:40 PM Rating: Decent
I think I can speak for everyone on this topic. Please people when you know that someone has been camping for a long time, don't pester them about when they are going to leave. Don't sit down next to them to "wait" until they are done. You might be waiting a long time and then the time it takes for you to complete your camp on top of that. The NPC will always respawn and will always be there. Just ask them kindly if they will send you a tell when they are done and 9 times out of 10 they will. These players are tired from camping that long of a period and quite understandably a little grouchy and become extremely nervous at the thought of someone possibly stealing their kill. So, be courteous.
Mended Tapestry
# Jul 25 2000 at 9:16 PM Rating: Default
I recently got the 2nd rank skullcap. I bought the torn and ripped tapestry in the Field of Bone zone in both buildings one building has the torn half and the other side has the ripped half. I'm also good at sewing it only took me two trys. If anyone needs help you can find me in the Karana Server.
Torn Tapestry
# Jul 21 2000 at 7:56 AM Rating: Default
The torn one can be found at some vendors as it can be sold, the ripped one is the hard one to get. I have had them twice now and have had my tailoring skills into the 20's but it failed both times. If anyone knows of an easier way to find the ripped tapestry ley me know
check merchants
# Jul 09 2000 at 5:52 PM Rating: Decent
I think at least one of the two tapestry pieces can be sold to merchants so if you're having trouble finding one check merchants in the area.
RE: check merchants
# Jan 25 2001 at 8:03 PM Rating: Default
I've found BOTH pieces at the merchants but at separate times. Put them together and turned it in along with my first rank cap to get the second. This was done on 1-25-01. I didn't really pay much attention to them other than names.
