Troll Shadowknights also need one BOLS for the weapon part of the n00b-armour quest. (Dark Basher's Final Task - Dark Basher's Two-Handed Sword)

They are for the newbie bard armor quests in Freeport.
Silly Verant, Wisps should be Undead
# Jan 28 2002 at 6:13 PM Rating: Good
Traditionally, a will o wisp is a wandering soul, or spirit. Souls and spirits being undead... so why aren't Wisps undead? I don't know. But I keep having to remind myself that they're a living creature according to Verant. *sigh*

"Hate! I'm you hate! I'm your hate when you want love. Pay! (pay) Pay the price, pay for nothing's fair." --Metallica, Sad but True
now that is not true..

According to the D&D version of the will o'wisp, They are entities made of energy. Where
Verant DID mess up however, is that wisps are typically evil, and feed off electrical discharges of foe's brains, given off when a foe is inevitably faced before death. Also, wisps live only near swamps, not woodlands. I don't know where you heard that wisps are undead, but i see no reason of why it should be...
9 plat for GLS

GIVE GLS to the gypsy in Oasis and she will give you a book. You can then SELL the book back to her for about 9 plat.

RE: no EC
# Jul 25 2001 at 6:06 AM Rating: Default
That's not true. GLS drop in EC, I got 6 over the course of the last two days...
GLS for 40pp
# Sep 02 2000 at 8:08 PM Rating: Default
I sold one for 40pp. It had been given to me and I had no magic weapons to get another. I sold it anyways. At lvl 9 it tripled my cash! Someone must've been desperate.
RE: GLS for 40pp
# Sep 12 2000 at 8:57 AM Rating: Default
You're not kidding! Eight to ten plat would be a prime price; I've bought them for 5 and 6 pp frequently. But maybe a higher-level caster needed to get his research practice tome and didn't feel like waiting.

Trash the burned out lightstones - they're good for absolutly nothing.

If you're on Luclin, send me a tell sometime ; )
Not really

My Troll Shaman needs one to make part of his Spiritcharmer armor. They're probably used in other quests too.

I thought that monks needed them for Wu's fighting gauntlets?
RE: Junk
# May 01 2001 at 9:20 AM Rating: Decent
No, thats a GLS

# Sep 25 2001 at 2:37 PM Rating: Default
Not True. Chanters will eventually need BO LS's for spell research =)
GLS pricing
# Aug 04 2000 at 6:14 PM Rating: Decent
On E'ci, these are sold for 5pp, tops...
Heh - a guy was trying to buy one in EK for that, when NK and the 10pp quest mentioned above was a 2min walk away =)
# Jun 15 2000 at 4:18 PM Rating: Decent
On my home server of Prexus, you'll usually see these go for 7pp almost every time... or you can do the gypsy quest mentioned above, which gives nice exp and cash. If you've got the cash, sit around the wisp island buying GLSs for 7pp each, then go back here for easy cash and exp. :)
# May 30 2000 at 8:04 PM Rating: Decent
They drop lightstones and Greater light stones both of which can be GIVEN not sold to a gypsie in NK. cant remember her name but it starts with Mry.....
When you give the greater light stone you get XP and a Concordence of reserch book thingy ) which I sell back to here for 9p 7g ( my CHA = 114 ) not bad for killing fuzzballs )
# Jul 28 2001 at 4:20 AM Rating: Default
They can also be given to gypsie women in Oasis you just have to hail them and find out which one has the quest.

if you get a greater lightstone try to auction it i have seen them go for almost 10pp
# Mar 01 2000 at 11:00 AM Rating: Decent
The guards will NOT help you with these. You'll have to zone to get away from them.
More Locations
# Mar 01 2000 at 11:00 AM Rating: Decent
They're also found in East Commonlands, North Karana, and the ever popular "Wisp Island" in Erud's Crossing.

Don't forget about Greater Fay
# Mar 01 2000 at 11:00 AM Rating: Decent
I have seen these in Qeynos Hills and Greater Fay also.
# Mar 01 2000 at 11:00 AM Rating: Decent
Remeber to bring your magic weapon (or spells) as these things are invulnerable to common weapons.
# Feb 23 2000 at 9:41 AM Rating: Decent
These guys are a pretty rare spwan in Gfay I've only seen one or two around that area I hear they are a good source for quick cash.
RE: Spawn
# Nov 01 2000 at 11:23 AM Rating: Default
I have to agree playing my High Elf Cleric, I've only had the opportunity to kill two in Gfay.

On another note, if you do decide to hunt wisps in WC, EC, ect, best time to locate them is at night...just look for a glowing patch that is moving. In the day, your only hope to find them is to run around the tollbooth...
Rangers lead the way!
# Mar 14 2001 at 4:05 PM Rating: Default
They're actually quite plentiful in Greater Fay - you've just gotta know how to look for them and the best way is to pay a young Ranger 1pp a pop to track them down for you, or just let him join you (assuming you're earning XP for them and the level difference isn't extreme) and let him work for XP and 1 or 2 gold a pop.

The most plentiful place I have seen Willowips so far, as I have not been to Willowisp Isle yet is in West Commons. By the inn with the 2 dwarves there is a hill to the left, as your facing the toll both, that genrelly the wisps hang around. Being a Paladin, I generally cast flash of light on the nearest one and let it run around blind for a little bit. Nine times out of ten the willowisp brings along another friend or 2 along with it. At level 16, i got a little exp from killing a wisp, but frankly I'm in it for the loot. Of 2 hours hunting wisp's I eneded up with about 10 lightstones and 4 GLS's, countless burned out lighstone (I destroy these as soon as I get them). One word of advice, put all your looted lightstones in a bag or backpack at night so that you can see the wisps better.

# Mar 24 2001 at 7:59 PM Rating: Default
the most common place to get them is in eruds crossing an island that spawns 4 wiilow wisps at a time

These little guys drop greater light stones, which are a pretty easy way to make a few plat.
