Got this today off of ( A Praesertum Functionary ) in SSeru. Thought it was odd that Gnoll hide Tome dropped in here but it did.

It used to be this way, back in the day, that if you charmed a mob (ie chanter Dire Charm) and gave it gear, then when charm broke and the mob was killed, it would drop any of the gear items it was given as additional loot. Though why someone would give a Seru class mob this tome is baffling.

It also used to be that you could hand mobs items (if you were non agro to them) and again, when killed, the mob would drop the items. Guilds used to hold events in the newbie zones where they'd go around and randomly hand mobs twink gear for the newbies to find. Once a guild handed out a 100 crafted pies to various mobs in Gfay and had a contest to find the most pies for a prize.

Probably dropped by someone else and picked up by this mob.

#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 17 2002 at 9:19 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) LOL the real question is...can a warrior solo ANYTHING?
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 05 2002 at 3:26 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I have soloed my Warrior from about 35 to 46, granted it is a lot slower (lots of time spent binding wounds) but can be done.

Try Zlandicar's Heart +20 Int primary slot
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 26 2001 at 6:17 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Stein of Moggok is better cuz it is under 200pp
#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 07 2001 at 12:08 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) -10str isn't that important to int casters, yea the stein of moggok is better if your choosing between the two, but gnoll hide tomb is better for trade skills, as higher int = faster skill lvl increases, and higher wis = better chance of succesfully making what your attempting. But jus do like me, I already got a stein of moggok, now Im looking to get this to pair with it for an overall -10str +20int +5wis +15hps +35svd and maybe a few other stats. That rules!

Wisdom does not mean you have a better chance of success.

Only your skill level determines that.

Your Int/wis, whichever is higher gives you a better chance of increasing your skill.

This comes from Verants tradeskill guru

It has been my experience that higher wisdom equals lower failurs. But even is the is not true, wisdom is a factor in fear resists. Plus status does factor into items, I would not be caught dead with a stein on my necro, but in a pinch I'd use this.

After returning sayers son,and recieving the 1st gnoll slayer,he says to seek out the one-eyed white gnoll,havent found anything like this that drops both a book and an eye. Also heard rumors that the preserved splitpaw eye is not the eye you need. If you know of anything else,or completed the quest (havent found anyone who has yet) please post your results.
#Anonymous, Posted: May 26 2001 at 1:16 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This item is for a Quest in Qeynos Hills. Got to get this tomb and a eye and got to get a item from a Rare gnoll in Spike pit and he drops a Baby. Give the baby to the Man in the house in Qeynos Hills. Hail him first. Then hurt him. He should tell you he needs this TOMB and A EYE for a sword. Sword can summon pet like Mistwalker
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 24 2001 at 12:20 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) What fool modded this down? Just because he didn't fill in all the details? Because you've never heard of the quest, it doesn't exist?
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 02 2001 at 8:23 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This is clear that you are an idiot dude.... Notice how he gives no names? And how the only thing he comes out and specifically says is,"Quest in Qeynos Hills." Everything else he leaves pretty much blank.
#REDACTED, Posted: May 29 2001 at 4:17 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Then hurt him....? This sounds like yet another attemped from a dull witted person to get enjoyment from tourmenting newbees. Well any way if it true could some one post the names of the people and possibly a screen shot of the item?
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 28 2001 at 4:34 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The minus 10 str isnt that bad especially for casters when it gives plus 10 int and the 10 svd would be nice on PvP servers.
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 22 2001 at 5:55 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Seems like a high price for the -10 i could see 5k for -5 str but 10 wow thats a lot
