Warrens. Level 5 shroud.. Make sure the toon and merc have Temperance. I was able to give a toon and its merc the mage DS shield of lava which is huge auto agro dps and then if you happen to have a 120 cleric you can mass pull with Blood of the Vicarum and like as soon as you drop them on the little level 5 they all die and the level 5 gets credit. I'm sure 120 isn't required for the cleric and a lower blood spell will work too..

Assuming you evolved the Gnoll Reaver shoud to 5/5.

1. Hail the NPC and select a Gnollish Reaver shroud.

2. Hail the NPC and select to remove shoud.

3. Cycle through all the forms of Gnoll Reaver Shouds and hailing the NPC in each form, then return to normal.

4. NOT SHROUDED now.

5. Click the Bloodmetal Inlaid Gnollish Totem to activate Gnoll Reaver illusion.

6. Hail NPC and hand in the Bloodmetal Inlaid Gnollish Totem, and get upate (and the totem back).

7. Repeat number 6 again until your AA is at 5/5.

Which class? I think it scales differently based on your class.

I am stuck at 4/5 for the AA, but I have fully evolved my shroud.

I have attempted to remove the buffs and reclick, tried to hand the totem in again, zoning, reloading character, wearing every shroud, wearing every illusion, and nothing seems to work.

Anyone else seem to have this issue? Or know how to fix it aside from a petition?

I have the same problem. I have 5/5 and all the gnoll reaver shrouds unlocked but the AA for the item is still at 4/5. I've tried handing the totem in again and shrouding to 5 and hailing but still no upgrade to the AA.

I have shrouded down and leveled this up to 5/5, but only get about 40 AC on my shaman, and 29 AC on my crapknight. I have handed the bracer in repeatedly and hailed the NPC and the only text i've ever received was to allow me to return to my original form. This is on 2 diff chars. They are both L105. Anyone able to help? Frustrating. Thanks in advance for any help !!!

The numbers being shown in this thread are BEFORE they adjusted AC a few months back - looks like this clicky was affected in all that mess as well. I am 5/5 have shrouded to all forms and only see 47 AC on 105 Warr - kinda lame for the work involved

Once you shroud down like the quests says to do, I leveled my shroud up in North Qeynos. Have a druid cast a damage shield on you and go to town.

I received no incremental AC increase when I leveled it up from level 1 to level 2. Is that normal? Will I get a boost for level 3? 4? 5?

Be sure to go back to the shroud guy and have him turn you into the new form you unlocked. #2 is Darkfell Gnoll Reaver. Then hail him and he should say 'Yes, quite an improvement. You should now have access to stronger spirits and their powers.' Then you can use the clickie to turn into a Darkfell Gnoll and should get an AC increase compared to the level 1 clickie.
Illusion Cycle

The Illusion casts 2 things. a buff and an illusion. The buff changes depending upon your flag with the shrouds (what you unlocked and hailed him as). The buffs in order are:

1. Gnoll Reaver Fortitude
2. Darkfell Gnoll Reaver Fortitude
3. Blackburrow Gnoll Reaver Fortitude
4. Mucktail Gnoll Reaver Fortitude
5. Direwind Gnoll Reaver Fortitude

In addition, when clicked it will cycle in the above order (Gnoll Reaver > Darkfell > Blackburrow > Mucktail > Direwind) the illusions I put in the screenshots above. The previous gnoll illusion doesn't have to be removed, you can keep clicking without stripping the illusion until you get the one you want. Once it's casted Direwind it will start over again with Gnoll Reaver. It will only cast a specific illusion/fortitude if you've been flagged as having unlocked and then hailed for the specific corresponding shroud. The AC buff (Fortitude) will always be the highest one you have unlocked (so at max it will always be Direwind) only the illusion cycles with each click.

Screenshots of each above.

By the way, for the record, i got 204 AC from my Direwind (max) buff.

Maximum AC variance

The description on this is misleading.

The exact maximum value of AC you receive from this buff varies depending on your armor type (silk, leather, chain, plate). As a chain-wearing ranger the maximum I can get is 154 AC.
MAX WRONG ??
# Jun 21 2014 at 8:25 PM Rating: Default
I have opened up and haioled in all 5 forms of monster and mine is 154 ac not 173
Buff is called direwind Gnoll Rever Fortitude and it is in addition to the illusion listed above
5 or 6 Different Illusions in one ???

Does this mean as you unlock each one, you get that specific illusion, i.e. Mucktail, Blackburrow,etc... and you can just rotate through them all ?? If so, Very Cool.

Also, this works on lvl 90 toons also, just not sure how much AC is gained until I level up and unlock all the gnolls :)
153 ac

I leveled it up and gives me like 153 AC (I think) none of my other shrouds are more then 1/5 will try leveling them up and see if that improves the AC so I can get the max of 173

Per a post by Riou at the EQ Forums:

In the War Games Mission you will find a Bloodmetal Inlaid Gnollish Totem in the chest, upon looting this you will then turn it in to Yaldu Bwor (the Gnoll shroud NPC), this will unlock 5 Gnoll Shrouds to use, as you level these shrouds the AC buff on the Totem Clicky will gain in power, at max rank it is 173 ac at level 100. This AC buff stacks with all other AC buffs.

All the shrouds Yaldu Bwor offers are also put into the clicky as illusions as you "power" it up.
