So I helped get this drop for two necromancer's this weekend. It took 5 kills of Keeper of Souls to get two capes.
We were actually lucky enough that it dropped the first time for one, but then took 4 more kills to get it again. lol
Best way to do it, only kill one Pegasus or griffon if possible, then camp out, wait about 60-80 minutes for KoS to spawn. Come back in, kill KoS. If no cape; kill another Pegasus or griffon. Camp out, about 60-80 minutes. come back KoS should be up again, kill. Rinse, repeat, until you get the cape or whatever drop you're after for that matter. I spawned him 3 times just this morning doing this.

Do you need to camp out for the respawn function, or is that for doing something on different characters?

This is a great strat.. I did not get to try it, but seems like it would be most effective. I did manage get cape on day two KoS kill 2. Woot Happy Necro.

I have been up here fpr a week or more killed him 3 times still NO <Black Silk Cape>
been doing most 1.0 and many hard last fights but this has to be the hardest part as he DT and can't solo as a Rng, wizzy epic at Phinny was horrible droprate also but an easy kill. must been very hard and taken a long time to finish nec epic back in the days.

Have gone up to Sky the past 3 weeks & finally Keeper stopped being stingy, dropping 2 capes as well, this past Friday.

Killed him tonight with guild - we were actually there for shammy epic 1.5 but did him to get people keys for the next isle so we can get to isle 7 for a guild mage. He dropped 8 items total, including the ranger haste cloak quest item, but no black silk cape at all.
two from one

Got 2 capes form KoS - from reading other posts, this might be normal...
How much would an MQ cost on it?

Im on the veeshan/luclin server and how much would the mq for the black silk cape reasonably go for seeing as how we dont even need this silly epic anymore with 1.5 and 2.0 out. i just saw the epic 2.0 for necros today, nearly soiled myself. its beautiful.

It appears that Keeper of Souls is currently bugged in the players' favor at the moment? (not entirely sure, I assume he doesnt ever drop this much)

Earlier today I killed him with about 5 people and it seemed he dropped two loot tables worth, for an unprecidented TWO Black Silk Capes off a single kill.

He dropped some ****** ROG mask, a crappy mantle, a black silk cape, another crappy mantle, another black silk cape.

Was interesting in the least.

Killed the Keeper on Sunday after a long *** raid
-- no Cloak-- camped there and spent an hour and a half summoning ppl up on Tuesday-- Killed the Keeper-- again no Cloak.

Why do other classes have epics that are Twinkable when necros have to go through this @#%^?!?!

Frustrated necro,

Funny how they make the good stuff so impossible. LMAO. I guess thats the point though.

VERY rare
Necro epic item

"Used in quests" is a bit of an understatement. This is one of the pieces that makes the necro epic almost impossible.
