Killed tons of shadow wolves in Nek Forest; not a single paw dropped. Killed one in WK and got the paw.
Also from a_black_wolf
# Jun 22 2011 at 8:27 AM Rating: Good
This also drops off of a_black_wolf at the aforementioned spawn location.

I can attest this point is true. I would suggest sitting on top of the hill though and look down as anything can spawn, and would hate for you to get surprised!
Worked for me...

After spending a whole day in Misty, Went here -1230, -10300 in WK. Killed 4 beetle spawn, then 3 giant spiders, 4 beetle spawn, then 4 black wolves then 3 Shadow Wolves. All 3 dropped the paw. Spawn is fast, maybe 3-4 min. Was there less than 30 total.
magic spawn point
# Nov 07 2005 at 7:55 PM Rating: Decent
went out there today and found 2 spiderlings. Massacred them and what spawns in their place? why, a hill giant of course....

Programmers and their twisted sense of humor (note: I am a programmer hehe).

Just figgured I'd add HGs to the list of beasties that spawn at the magic spawn point.
Found two paws
# Jan 18 2005 at 11:22 AM Rating: Decent
I went to West Karana Saturday, to see if I could get a Shadow Wolf Paw from the area mentioned. I did. I got two, in fact.

If you go to roughly -1230, -10300 (I forgot the exact coordinates), you will see a large tree on a flat stone section of the mountain you are on. The spawn spot is to the west of the tree. I saw single spiders spawn there, or four spiders at once, and black wolves in pairs. The first pair of black wolves gave me nothing to speak of. The second pair of wolves each dropped a Shadow Wolf Paw. It took about 30 minutes for me to get the two paws once I entered WK from Qeynos Hills.

Before that, I killed a lot of shadow wolves in various zones. I also killed a lot of black wolves, too. Nothing. It seems apparent to me that this is just another example of the developers sticking their finger in the eye of the players. Ordinarily, you would expect shadow wolves to drop shadow wolf paws, and for the paws to drop occasionally in any zone that had the wolves. Maybe the developers thought it was amusing to put the paw on the wrong kind of wolf and limit it to one out-of-the-way zone.

I went to the spot mentioned below, -1246.31, -10318.46, 346.07. When I got there a Grizzly Bear was there. It was yellow to me so I killed things and gained 9th level. Then it was a close fight but I killed the bear. Then a Cyclops spawned there. Um.. I left. Aparently sony chnged that spawn spot.

I have played three characters now that have had to have a shadow wolf paw for their gloves. The first two I spend days in East commons killing black and shadow wolves as they are easiest to find there and now luck. Finally I went to West Karana with my chanter and looking in a store for a mist wolf pelt for a friend found a shadow wolf paw. And if that isn't enough good fortune, when I walked out not having a mist wolf pelt I attacked a mist wolf not far from the store and had a shadow wolf join the fight, by the end of the battle I had two shadow wolf paws and a mist wolf pelt. Pure Luck I know:).
Second I was trying to find these markers for the black wolves, I have never seen black wolves in WK before, and finally at loc -1228, -10313 found three spiderlings in a row, killed them then four fire beetles appeared after a few minutes, killed them and then four black wolves spawned. I killed them and got one shadow wolf paw.

Ok i tried the "4 Lined up" spawn in WK at -1024, -10318 and no luck. Found 4 Fire beetles lined up, killed 'em 5 times and they respawned every time. If some1 wants to try killin' 'em 20 times go for it and let me know.
From shadow wolves too
# Jul 11 2004 at 10:56 PM Rating: Decent
Got a paw from a shadow wolf today in West Karana. They may drop from black wolves still, but this 100% sure came from a shadow wolf near the -2k/12k spot everyone below is talking about.

I just got a paw today 28 May 2004 in Western Karana. I got it from A Black Wolf, not A Shadow Wolf. There were two black wolves popped and standing next to each other just east of the ogre camp on the hill in WK. The exact loc is -1247.53 -10313.60 345.33 again this is in WK not Misty or EC. I killed both wolves the second one had the paw.
Ellusive Paw

Ok, so under some advice from a random passerby, I travel to West Karana to try and find shadow wolves. Search for days...No shadow wolf. Then a chanty tells me "go to west commonlands, they are more common there." So I go, kill dozens of them....No paw. So then I get a tip to go to Misty Thicket. Literally kill hundreds of these wolves.....STILL no paw. Then I happen on this site. Follow the /loc here to the mountainside. Wait for two full days there. Only twice did black wolves spawn, two each time..... STILL NO PAW. I would of camped there longer had my partner and I not been pounced on by both a werewolf AND a cyclops at once. All I can say is, what gives... It seems killing a dragon would be easier than finding one of these paws or do I just have the worst luck in all of Norrath???

My cleric took a ranger friend out to East Karana and killed about a dozen Shadow Wolves before we got toasted by a yellow-con lion (I was lvl 8 at the time) --- no paw.
Then I took some advice off the postings here and tried again in West Karana. My ranger buddy got a Shadow Wolf on track in the mountainous area near the merchants....I killed it at neg 372, neg 12290, pos 222. It had the paw on it :) It was mid afternoon when I spotted it, and it was the only Shadow wolf on track at the time. Hope this helps someone.
Shadow Wolf Paw

Just got 2 shadow wolf paws after trying to get them from shadow wolf's for 2 days. Now hear this - the shadow wolf paws is dropped in West Karanas by Black Wolf, not Shadow Wolf. Here's the location:

-1246.31, -10318.46, 346.07

There were 4 black wolves lined up - 2 dropped shadow wolf paws and, contrary to popular belief, they are not NO-DROP!!!!!

Happy hunting!

I camped this spot and three grizzly bears spawned followed by a hill giant who wiped out the guards my friends ran to then us

This quest is insanely hard

WOW You ROCK found them at the loc and 2 or the 4 had paws. I tried for 3 hours killing and Tracking black/shadow Wolves and noting.
THANKS

Thanks for the info. I went to these coordinates and found 4 fire beetles lined up. Since it was the afternoon, I wasted them all and waited until night time. A giant spider and 2 fire beetles respawned in place, so I wiped them too. A while later (I waited for probably 20 minutes) 2 black wolves popped, and sure enough one of them had a shadow wolf paw drop :)
Needed it for my lvl 10 cleric :)

Partial Finding
# Jul 04 2003 at 3:03 PM Rating: Decent
Ok, I searched and searched and searched and I was able to find the Shadow Wolf in WK ... it was near where the Black Wolves spawn at Loc -1198,-10358 .... I believe that you have to kill whatever place holder is there (spiders was mine). 2 black wolves will spawn and somewhere around there on the hill (stay on the gray area) he was there. I had a friend help me and we werent able to get a percise loc. Hope this helps.
What about Misty?
# Jul 02 2003 at 10:43 AM Rating: Decent
Do they drop in Mysty? Im hunting for 1 too.

First try in West Karana, dropped a paw.

Loc -173, -9522, west of the Ogre camp.
Scuttle-butt on the paw
# Jan 03 2003 at 12:05 PM Rating: Decent
I have heard rumors that dark wolves drop the shadow wolf paws also. I have not been able to confirm this, but I am on the trail of the shadow wolf paw myself. I hope one shows up soon my hunting party has killed close to 200 shadow wolves in misty thicket and other areas and still no paw.

Jus a guess, but the shadow wolves in EC drop Freeport quest items(ie the bone thingy) and the shadow wolves in WK drop the paw. Went to EC to try to get a paw cuz I know the shadow wolf is more common in EC. Sent a shout that I was paying handsomely for the paw... dead silence... All I got when I killed the wolves was the goofy bone thingy... hmph! I know that the shadow wolves seem to spawn around T1 and T2 at night when all the mists are gone. Gonna try a late, EQ night camp by the towers and see what spawns once I clobber the mist wolves. This is the only piece left for me(the gloves) to create and this paw is the only item left that I need. Poor mists won't know what hit em.

The gear may seem trivial, but the fact that it was quested is more than enough reason to spend the time on it. Sides... the Theurgist Robe is pretty much the same color. Good match, yes?
Ultra Rare Drop = Non-existant?
# Jan 02 2003 at 12:57 PM Rating: Decent
I've spent 5 days in EC hunting these and have killed close to 200 of them. Not a single drop. Petition to GM went something like this...

ME: "Is the drop rate normal on these? I've killed over 100 of them and not a single drop."

GM: "They are dropping as normal."

ME: "And that means?"

GM: "You have as much information as I do."

Hrmmm...so if I don't know if they are dropping normally, how does the GM? ... ah well ...

ME: "But they do drop in this zone, correct?"

GM: "Aye, that they do."

... go figure.

You need to go to West Karana and hike out to near where the Hill Giants live. There are shadow wolves there around dusk usually, and I have had the paw drop from them about 3 out of 7 times. Just keep your eyes peeled for the Hill Giants.

By the way, myself and 3 other people hunted the shadow wolves in East Commons (no lie) for a month, non-stop, never once did one of them drop a paw.

Good hunting!

Try -8000,-1000...

Treants also spawn in this area, so I hope your Surefall faction is good.(I assume you might be low enough to wanna worry) Froon and Choon spawn within the mountain just east of this loc. They are giants and love to kill people when they are least expecting it. 8)

Try clearing T1 and T2 and waiting for night. The shadow wolf spawns are relatively rare round these parts, but most likely have the paw.

Hope this heps!
