Awesome Experience and Loot

One of the best places I have found to Level with no adds. If you go into the tunnels from WW side, you will come up to a juntion where if you go straight you go to LOIO but going left or right leads to a cave with three of these Brutes.

They are far apart enough to single pull by simply walking up to them and smacking them. Once you clear the room, turn around run to the other end of the juntion and hit three more. By the time you finish. the previous cave will repop and the fun will begin again. I made 3 Levels alone there and with the various gems and loot it is also very profitable.

When you say WW you're referring toWarslik's Woods... They've changed it about a year or so ago, increasing aggro radius on these Skulking Brutes dramaticly. When you walkclose to the room you will generally get all 3 on top ofyou now... I leveled my necro there just as they were changing it. one day, singles... next day bam all 3... you must have some splitting method now if you can't handle all 3 hitting you at once.

drop rate

in the past week i have spent 16 hrs, killing 12 brutes an hour, thats 192 brutes and have had 1 hq drop. going to be a slow process to make cultural 1/2 ling armor, suggest u try somewhere else or petion for better drop rates if u need these. good luck on your hunt
Common in WW

I have Found these to be a fairly common drop in Warsliks woods. Spent half an hour there and walked out with 4. Have only seen them rarely in FM and DL. Hope this helps some of you. = )

From what I have discovered, the High Quality Hides drop from brutes in FM, rarely from brutes in DL, and going to check out the drops in Warsliks Woods. These are getting very hard to come by on Bristlebane server, they seem to be getting rarer and rarer. Most peeps in bazaar are now charging up to 300pp each for them, which is just ridiculous. Hope others are having better luck than me.

Getting to 158 is pretty easy with Wu's Fighting Skirt. But then.... for halfling it SEEMS pretty easy to go on.
You hunt HQ Brite Hides of Brutes running around a lot in Frontier Mountains. 1 problem though...they drop VERY rare. So, how long will it take to level. Jeeez,.....centuries or what ?
Unless you have a lot of money it will.
When you have tons of money, you go fight for xp and now and then you check out the bazaar and you buy all the HQ brute hides you can find. If there are any at all.
I was fighting all afternoon and all I got were 4 HQ brute hides and a whole load of brute hides that brings me nothing cos they are for lower tailoring.

These are also found on Gorging and Ravenous Brutes in Frontier Mountains. Even if you're not a Halfling, these are worth picking up to sell, specially if you need a few pps. Sold mine for 150 each in The Bazaar.
What are they for?

I am finding these once in a while on skulking runtlings in Warsliks Woods. I would imagine they would also drop off the skulking brutlings and skulking brutes found there. They are not common, as they do not drop all the time. Maybe 1 in 10 at best from the number I have killed and the number of hides I have recovered. Anyway, can these be tailored or anything? Do they sell for a decent price?
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?
