For those of us who can't track, I've found that these mobs spawn in static locations and rather quickly. You can make a loop, take a small break to get a soda, and come back to do it over again. Making these locations on your map will save you a LOT of time meandering around the zone looking for the mobs.

As a general rule, they keep themselves to the EAST of the mountains and to the WEST of road that heads north.

i love them!!

went to farm them yesterday with my 46 monk..
north east corner,right next to tunnel.
its simple; run around kill every undead mob (yes, everyone) note that even the ruinances(small bugs) are undead.
in less than an hour i got 1 stack of swirling shadown and 5 stacks of silk.
put it all on trader,and next day it was all gone. s.shadows sold for 40pp each, silk for 10pp each (!!)

these mobs were my favorite income before pop. collect a lot of silk,and hope for some "high lvl" druid to come by,offering to buy silk. back then it was only 1pp each though,but managed to make my first 1k of them before i was lvl 20.
this is indeed a great zone for farming. if you want a little more pp for your time; collect hopper hides too and make em into leather paddings. they will always sell.
Shadling Silk on lesser shades
# Aug 02 2005 at 11:23 PM Rating: Decent
Must be they don't drop it for you, but I was after swirling shadows today and all I was getting was the Shadling silk :( I've come after the lesser shades before for the silk and gotten quite a few, but how do you make them respawn? I killed em all and after 15 min still none are repoping! :(
Some new info..
# Aug 31 2005 at 1:07 AM Rating: Decent
Apparently with my Vah Shir Beastlord and Half-Elf Druid, I camped the 'a lesser shade' spawn point, and managed to get 3 shadeling silk. My Dark Elf Necromancer has -not- once picked up anything off the lesser shades.

At the far end of Shadeweaver's Thicket going straight away from the Portal of Knowledge book is a bad looking area, plenty of dead trees and no grass. When you get near a /loc that you start hearing howling, travel directly left (not exactly perfect directions, but my maps are screwy), you'll find plenty of 'a lesser shades'. After a 5-10 minute period, if the lesser shades are still alive, then begin zone wandering. The Gor Taku, Shak Dratha, poachers, brigands, and whatever else, as well as various Cth'Thk or whatever they're called, do not aggro lesser shades.

Apparently, Verant made it so my Necromancer will never pick up Shadeling Silk ever again, the dirty punk :P
Confirmed information

Confirm that 'A Lesser Shade' do not drop Shade Silk.

over 2000 hunted and I have yet to see shade silk. I was collecting shadeling silk and swirling shadows.
I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you thought you heard was not what I meant.
spawn area
# Oct 07 2003 at 11:23 PM Rating: Decent
These are very plentiful in Shadeweaver's Thicket. To find them head to the Paludal Caverns zone area in the NE of the zone. Just to the north they spawn along with some other mobs on the hillside. At any given time you can find about 10 to 15 of them up. They have somewhere in the 100-150 HP range.

Exactly. There are several that spawn right around the NE entrance to the caverns. As soon as you hit one, another pops. Makes for fast work collecting both silks and swirling shadows.

I've seen these drop a rusty ulak on occasion but that was back when I first started my bst char. I haven't played much in the past couple months so I could be wrong about the drop.

Swirling Shadows sell for 50 plat Each on Fennin Ro.... and im making a killing selling them LOL.
for the mathematicly challenged 20x50= 1000plat per stack, i can loot at least 3 stacks in a day if i stayed all day.
RE: Secret
# Dec 30 2003 at 4:39 PM Rating: Good
50p is way too much. The normal market price is around 10p - 15p on a good day. With the price inflation lately, you can sometimes get 20p - 25p, but thats coming down fast now that the plat bugs are getting fixed.

Fyi, blacksmiths use these for the Humming Orb combine. To go from 190 to 250 skill will require someone with max stats (255 Str/Int) about 2,500 (two thousand five hundred) swirling shadows. So if you are charging 50p, the smith would have to pay you 125k. I doubt anyone is going to be drop that much on Humming Orbs, since there are cheaper ways to get the same skillups. 10-15p is the break even point where it makes sense. If you charge 10p, the Smith will pay you 25k for the same 2500 silks that he needs, still a handsome chunk of change.
darkened jawbones
# May 09 2003 at 7:27 AM Rating: Decent
they also drop the darkened jawbones, which if you give 4 of them to spiritist karina, she gives you a decent set of gloves that aren't no drop (but are lore). good low lvl gloves =)

Greater and Lesser shadows in twilight sea drop them commonly
No rent armor
# Apr 04 2002 at 1:53 AM Rating: Default
Just wanted to let anyone know who was wondering what the no rent armor is for. It's for tailoring. Just take one piece of hopper patch work armor of the same piece as the 'no rent' armor and combine with your spirit anchor needle and the 'no rent' armor of course.

Look under Recipes, they are used in place of Spiderling Silk for most Tailoring combines.
Also drop some armor
# Feb 05 2002 at 6:11 AM Rating: Decent
which is nice for untwinked lowbies. It also has a black look to it. I felt like in DAoC hehe. You kill a low lvl skele and get armor for it that makes you look not so newbieish.
swirling shadows
# Feb 01 2002 at 7:52 AM Rating: Decent
I killed a few of these doys . Got 8 Shadeling silks , swirling shadows ( no rent ) and a shadow claw ( No drop ) any know what thay are for
RE: swirling shadows
# Feb 22 2002 at 3:23 AM Rating: Default
Shadowed Claw if for Ghulam boots quest. Swirling shadows can be made into Shadow Discs, I think, using blacksmithing.
Shadeling silks are used in Vah Shir BL quest, or are otherwise used for tailoring.
