It is worded a bit ackwardly. Sol Ro is where the quest is given and where the turn in is. The Feerott is where the items are being farmed at ... at the fork in the river, North of the CT Zone In, there will be 3 lizzards standing in front of a spire (tree) and 1 lizzard on the other side facing the water. Kill the loner come around tree and kill 3 more ....go back around and wait for repop ...10 minute timer. The Spiritualist or Crusader will drop one or more of all needed items. They are:
a decayed left and right bracer
a decayed left and right boot
a decayed left and right gauntlet
a decayed left and right vambrace
a decayed left and right leg plate (epic)
a decayed Helm (epic)
a decayed visor (epic)
a decayed chainmail (epic)
a decayed breastplate (epic)

Breastplate = 466.
Greaves = 470.
Helmet = 465.

These Allakhazam links will tell the support items that are also needed for each quest.

I'm currently trying to complete these quest myself for my SK. My SK is level 65 and I always keep clear the ramp near CT, the 5 surrounding pyramids, the mobs near the bridges off the triangular island, and the 4 mobs where Radiant pops. I have found out, after hours of nonstop bloodshed, that the Crusaders can spawn in any point. I have seem them spawn around each pyramid and around the nothern oblisk. The only spot I haven't seen a Crusader spawn, was the Radiant/Spiritualist spawn, just 3 feet south of the Northern Oblisk. I have seen Spiritualists spawn everywhere on this triangular island exept in the gorilla spawn points. I have all pieces except the breastplate, which I am going to get now.
As far as which pieces drops off who? I have seen all different pieces drop off both the Crusaders and the Spirtualists. Both of those mobs always drops 1 or 2 decayed pieces at a time.
Hope this helps,

Come on people. Out of all you SK's there, there isn't one D.E. Male who has a pic of himself in DarkForge for the Fashion Tables? Lol. Btw How much are these nowadays?
About to get it

Firstly, the Decayed armour appears on Tae ew Spiritulists and Crusaders. I sometimes got two pieces of the Spiritulists.

Next, decayed is No Drop, the Darkforged is Lore only.

Lastly. If you want to solo, try the north point of the island. There are 4 spawn points, one of which is where the spiritulists spawns the most. I started at 34 and am nearing 36 without too much trouble.

Kill the Tae Ew Crusaders and Spiritualist. I did this a while ago -- not too long after the CT revamp -- and I found that the spiritualist pops at the pillar where a silvered tae ew observer and radiant can also pop, so keep that spawn cleared, as well as the spawns on/near the pyramids near the CT ramp. I've been told but can not confirm that the crusaders can also spawn at the base of the ramp but in my experience they did not.

Hope this helps!

this is used for the SK epic and isnt no drop
No Drop??
# Jan 06 2003 at 3:11 AM Rating: Default
isn't this a no drop item? Most of the items from Sol Eye are.. anyone got a LinkPic? That might help, and also there seems to be some stats missing..that seems kinda skimpy for all that work.

Does anyone have a better pict than the one that is showing for the DE female? I am debating on whether to do this or to try and get some shadowscream armor for my DE SK. Anyone have any thoughts and ideas on this? Thank you for all the posts:)

Yes just about anyone can do them. I know a few people that used to farm the pieces to MQ or just make the armor and sell it.

The word uber is a German word that, literally translated, means "over". My opinion is that it's very clever and that the individual who first introduced it to English-speaking EQ players should be commended.
RE: uber
# Feb 13 2002 at 11:23 PM Rating: Default
I thought uber was German for super
RE: uber
# Mar 07 2002 at 1:19 PM Rating: Default
It can mean either, I believe.

Its usage comes from many many years ago before EQ was even thought of. EQ was designed based on people playing LP and Diku muds...but they were preceded by other types of MUDS and one of them was AberMUD which was often called UberMUD.

I know the MUD community has been using 'uber' as a common slang for years and years.

the right german word is über. means "above", or sometimes "over" something. dunno who introduced it into english, but its sometimes funny for what its used.
/edit/ and it doesnt mean super. super is super in german, no translation needed.

RE: uber
# May 07 2002 at 4:17 PM Rating: Decent
Well I know the word was atleast re-introduced in the early 80's when "The Dead Kennedy's" realesed their album "In God we Trust, Inc." - with a great tune on it called "California Uber Alles", literally 'California Over All'... this was a political statement off of one of Hitlers favorite tunes (allthough I do not beleive it is Germany's national song...) Deutchsland Uber Alles.

thats what I know.

RE: über
# Aug 08 2002 at 4:02 PM Rating: Decent
Deutchsland Über Alles was a part of the german national song, but they removed it after the second world war and added another part. But the music is still the same as it was then, so it WAS a part of the national song.

Not iksar wearable?
# Nov 17 2001 at 4:21 AM Rating: Decent
Am I the only one that finds it strange that an iksar Sk couldn't wear this? It appears to be a chain armor, which an iksar should be able to wear (judging by the graphic). Just seems pretty lame to exclude iksar from the quest armor that every other sk can get easilly.
RE: Not iksar wearable?
# Jun 21 2002 at 8:25 AM Rating: Decent
There are many plate armors Iksar cannot wear...most really. Darkforge, sentient, and blood ember are all armor pieces that will never touch your scaley hide.

We do have our own dreadscale quests, the pieces are generally 2-3 ac lower than darkforge but the stats are just about identical. Its not bad stuff for chain armor and a couple pieces are really easy to get, compared to darkforge, which can seriously be a real PITA.

A good bp to watch out for is Treeweave, 25 ac 10 str and Ikky friendly...about the best there is until you can get your claws on some Barbed Ringmail or Shissar Scale Breastplate, then you're finally into some serious AC.

Playing an Iksar Shadowknight isn't easy, but its fun being one of the sturdier ****'s in EQ.

It's plate armor when worn Taloquin. The item graphic in the inventory window means nothing.

What mes want to know is why do some people sells dis cheaper den da Mithil breatplate mes thinks dis much better dden dat

RE: Price
# Oct 24 2001 at 10:31 AM Rating: Decent
The reason why is because this is a class specific item, and as such it is harder to sell so people sell cheap. And also the mithril BP is better in my opinion. =)
RE: Price
# Mar 27 2002 at 5:18 PM Rating: Decent
better than mith? yeah right, AC is what counts most other stats are eye candy, this has 3 more AC, not too mention that wearing mith as a SK makes you look like a frickin bard...
RE: Price
# Oct 18 2003 at 10:18 PM Rating: Decent
But the additonal 15 AGI plus the 30 HP makes the Mith a better AC and HP item. Barbed Ringmail would still be better with its AC 30, +9 Str and 50 HP.

I ran into a guy with what I think was called Tier'Dal armor. It was bluish in color and had stats that were INSANE. Not having seen planar armor firsthand, I would say that the armor seen on this individual would be the best that I've seen for an SK. He also mentioned that it is race-specific and can only be crafted by Dark Elves themselves.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 19 2001 at 9:22 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This is supposedly the SK' epic armor but not the best amror, lot of armor 50 times better than this drop in Velious and in planes
RE: ?
# Sep 07 2001 at 8:36 AM Rating: Decent
This isn't the SK epic armor. This is the SK 30's quest armor. There's considerably better armor available, even better SK only armor.
RE: ?
# Oct 02 2001 at 10:03 AM Rating: Default
you need darkforge bp,greaves, and helm to start SK epic. so he is correct.
RE: ?
# Oct 03 2001 at 1:42 AM Rating: Decent
You need these pieces of armor to hand over for you the SK epic weapon inoruuk's curse. The best SK armor is malevolent which the BP is like ac 54, (enter uber stats here)
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 26 2002 at 2:23 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) best sk only armor is blood lords :P marginaly less ac than malevolant and WAY more hp (which is all that matters at that point in the game anyway), along with much better stats and saves. so pshhhh :P
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 21 2001 at 7:46 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) A Chitten shell is not needed in this quest, its for the Dreadscale Armor Quests, (Iksar SK quest armor). But... if you need an uncracked chitten shell you can go to the Field of Bone, (FoB), and kill a Larg Heartsing Scorpian, like level 20 or so. It's a common drop of them about one in three.
#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 13 2000 at 9:54 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) So Does anyone know where the not cracked chittin shell is? Last I heard you can forage a "Cracked Chittin Shell" in FoB.
