Sentry Kale is looking for someone to perform a task for him. Ask him what task and he will explain that the spiders have been eating the food supplies. Go out and kill the four crystal spiders that spawn in the zone and bring back their legs as proof. 2 are near the bank, 1 is in the fountain, and 1 is in a bedroom. They are on 2 hour spawn timers.

Most of the time you get some faction and coin, but sometimes he will give you a Chameleon ring.

Lost the spiders, what's a good option?

I've searched a number of times for these spiders without success. I'm ready to believe that this quest is no longer active since the revamp of Skyshrine, not that I ever did this or any Skyshrine quest prior to the revamp.

I am, though, highly interested in hearing of a Skyshrine faction quest that I can solo as a ranger of 46 seasons. It seems the Giant Warrior Helms are still accepted by Commander Leuz, as are the frost giant toes, but those are both fairly rare items and I like to share the toes with all of my friends who are doing the Coldain Shawl quests.

Unfortunately, I cannot get Skyshrine residents to speak to me at a sneaking faction level of Indifferent (only apprehensive so far from giant hunting), so I can't get any other quest started.

It seems that the majority of the information here pertaining to the Skyshrine quests relate to pre-revamp conditions. Any advise for improving my CoV faction would be greatly appreciated.

I have not seen them since the re-vamp of Shyshrine either. I have checked many times with my tracker.

As of today I ran in and out of skyshrine for a total of 4 hours and not seen any spiders, even w/ see invis up. So it seems the quest indeed is broken or no longer in game.

However i did notice even w/ indifferent faction i was able to turn in a few quest items (toes and helmets and went to amiably with 5 toes and 4 helmets) But still can't get quests

I have also done this quest about a dozen times and turned them all in when he was giving correct quest but have not gotten the ring, has it been nerfed or do I just have really bad luck?

- This quest can be multiquested. Whoever turns in the 4th leg gets the coin, faction, and ring (if lucky).
- Legs from any four will do the job. They can all be from the same spawn point.
- I've done this quest about 10 times. Each time with all my slots filled. I have not had the ring show up on my cursor after doing it, but I have mysteriously acquired 3 of these rings from "somewhere". I'm thinking they automatically got droped into my inventory. I didn't bother reading the text of what he says after doing it the first time.
- I've never gotten aggro from the guards. But I was max allied with CoV and level 51 when I started.
- About 75% of the spiders I've seen have been the one that shows up in the room next to the bank.
- Next most common was the one in the pool. Least common is the one in the bedroom and on way to bank.
- I have killed some spiders and had them *not* drop legs.
- I have only seen them show up on track when I've had SeeInvis on. And they show up as "a crystal spider" (all lower case). In the druid track order (whatever order it is), they tend to show up at the bottom of the list.

Some of these may just be coincidence, but, that's what I've observed.
bad luck or was it changed?
# Mar 11 2002 at 3:16 PM Rating: Default
I've done this quest over 15 times and have yet to get the ring. Is this just really really bad luck? or did they change the quest? I've tried 6 turn ins when he gives you the quest when hailed and 9 when you hailed him and he gave out other quests...does that even matter?

I did this quest twice and got the ring on my second attempt. Replaced my cutthroat ring (i know, im twinked, but what can i say?) I turned the legs into the Kale (aint that his name?) who gives the quest. Maybe thats why? (Also got 2 bracers of hammerfall for two quest attempts. I can finally kite hill giants!)

aggro vs non-aggro

This is faction related. I think it was already stated somewhere in this thread.

If you have a higher CoV faction than the spider, you won't get aggroed. If the spider has higher faction than you do, you will get aggroed.

I've done this quest twice and not gotten the ring...However, I thought this worth mentioning: You don't have to have one leg from each spider...you just have to have FOUR of the legs. They aren't lore =) Good luck everyone.

done the bracer
# Nov 23 2001 at 11:01 PM Rating: Default
I did the bracer quest myself, not knowing if I will get the bracer or not, I have bags in all of my inventory slots except one, but I think that one might have had a vial of velium vapors in it... althought i dont remember for sure if it was in it or not, nor do I have any clue to it's relevance in thsi case... but the first time I did the quest, I got the bracer and was quite happy... i'm now a ranger who throws hammers

ps: they are quite fun to watch and stir some funny looks when u throw them, or put them on the ground, and whats even cooler is that they are not no-rent and dont go away after u camp, so u can make as many as u want :)

happy hunting

Can this one be multiquested? Or does 1 person have to have all 4 legs?
RE: multiquest
# Feb 09 2002 at 8:35 PM Rating: Default
Yes. The person that turns in 4th leg gets xp and faction, and ring if it drops
Where Sentry Kale located?

You say, 'Hail, Sentry Kale'
Sentry Kale says 'Why come you to the home of the kin? Seek a home amongst the kin perhaps? Perhaps if you wish to prove yourself I may have a task for you.
You say, 'i wish to prove myself'
Sentry Kale says 'Very well, it is a minor task, but I am sure you are quite capable. Lately the food supply in the guards' galley has been dwindling. I fear that there are spiders amongst us who are pilfering our food when we do not see. I would ask of you to please seek out and eliminate these vermin for us. Bring their legs back to me and I shall reward you for your effort.

I did this quest the other day for the first time. I was able to locate all 4 spiders with the help of a level 60 druid, these spiders will show up on track. You are going to need the ability to see invisible though.

One spider is in the fountain. You need to pull the spider to the corner of the pool or else the guardians in there will heal him again and again.

One spider is in the room if you pass the bank and open the door at the end of the hall. There is a Hungry cube in there. This one contributed to no small amount of ire, becuase I had to camp and kill it twice! The first time I killed him all I got were some crummy sp, and no spider legs. I got the legs the second time.

The third spider is in a bedroom near the named Drake..Ziglark Whisperwing I think.

The fourth spider was the most difficult to kill. As you head through the secret wall before the fountain room, do not head right, which leads to the bank. Instead, turn to your left and look down. There is a small drop, and it is a small square area. The only way out is the secret wall that leads you back to the beginning. He spawns right here. I leapt down to kill him, but when I attacked, the gargoyles attacked me right through the wall. I thought maybe I was too close, so I Feigned Death and /q'd out to clear aggro. When I came back, I moved as far back as I could, and (not wanting to take any chances) hit him with my Harm Touch. Same thing...Gargoyles attacked me. I managed to kill it, and loot it, then FD with the Gargoyle still beating on me, /q'd out again and took no faction hit. I was amiable in SS at the time of the completion.

I handed these things in to Sentry Kale and I got some coins and some faction. No ring. The ring would be nice for it's stats, but it was such a pain trying to get all those spiders I will not repeat it again. I will just spend 50pp a pop for a faction boost next time Sentry Kale is offering the Bracer of Hammerfal quest.

My mage is Ally to CoV, when I attacked the spider, nothing happened. Sent in my pet and the guards jumped Jobar. I had to gate, andthen returned as my cleric. Rooted, nuked, killed, guards did nothing. Pets WILL AGGRO if you try to kill spiders.

what i have found
# Aug 05 2001 at 5:18 AM Rating: Excellent
to dispell a couple myths and maybe clear some things up for myself.
-spiders are not on a 2 hour timer. if anybody has any idea what they are on i would appreciate it. i think the timer is in excess of 8 hours.
-spiders do show up on track. invis does not affect tracking. many times ive had druid/range pick up guano while he was invis in sol b.
-the legs are all the same(i have not ided)name and none are lore.
-i have done the quest 2 times and i think each time i used at least one set of legs from the same area and you still get the coin and faction hit.
-any ideas on what causes ring to be given? tried full inventory slots and that didnt work. im ally to cov.
-your pet has the same faction as you. if im kos to something my pet is also. if im ally he is too. like if im farming spider silks in ek in wolf form the griffs are indiff to me and pet. if i take off wolf they agro on pet.
-i think thats it. be safe.

Has anyone tried handindg in Crystal spiders in CC yet. Perhaps he will take thiose instead. Beats waiting around for 2 hours each spawn'
#Anonymous, Posted: Jul 12 2001 at 5:47 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Just to clear some of these questions up, Yes you need a primarily slot open, each leg IS specific so you must kill all 4, the guards will not aggro you, and the legs in velks have nothing to do witht the quest.
# Jul 02 2001 at 3:56 AM Rating: Default
its ******** you get different quests or reward
or not depending on free inventory slot.

kale swaps randomly his 3 quests when he pops.
you need to kill him or wait for server down
if hes on a wrong quest for you.

ring and bracer reward is random. always had
inventory empty. beeing a monk i carry 2 containers and 2 0.0 weight items. thats it.
still had to do the hammerfall quest 3 times
til i got bracer.

have yet to see a ring for the spiderlegs.
#Ruidd, Posted: Jun 20 2001 at 10:02 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) To get bracer quest we found that you have to have a main inventory slot empty. To get the ring quest from him have all your main inventory slots full. At least it worked that way for us.

# Aug 05 2001 at 5:22 AM Rating: Default
the quest he gives has nothing to do with what your inventory set up is. its just random. he will give the same quest over and over until he is killed. then he makes a roll for a new quest. same with emil. however, if you have the pieces for any quest that he is giving you can turn them in for reward regardless of which quest he is "handing out".

The spiders in Velketor's drop a different leg - I believe they were called snow spider legs. The legs that drop from the Skyshrine spiders are also no drop and unstackable, unlike the Velketor's spider legs.

I am 'Kindly' to COV and Yelinak, I just tried to kill one of the spiders and got wasted by a guard... I was using a pet, it could be that since my pet had no faction with COV or Yelinak that the guard simply aggro'd on the pet, although that's rather silly since i can have a pet in FP, neriak, out post and any other place I'm at 'kindly' or better...must just be zone specific.

Here are my experiences with this quest :

1) You will *not* see these spiders on tracking, as a moment after they spawn, they all cast Invisibility on themselves, vanishing from track lists. See invis is a *must* to locate them.

2) I read the posts about nearby guards aggroing, and I'm confused. I am a 52nd level Ranger, with dubious CoV faction, and yet have killed these spiders with gargs flying past. No aggro at all - though certain mobs will cheal them, if they are allowed to run.

3) And it seems that they are not always on that 2 hour timer...camped them for a while, and it seems longer...

If you need any more info, look me up on Tunare :)

There's another quest from Kale that appears to require you have a primary inventory slot open in order to receive the reward (the hammerfal bracer). Is it possible this one is the same way? Can anyone who has/hasn't gotten the ring confirm whether they had primary slots open at the time?

I got the ring on about the 3rd try. If you're lucky enough to get it, it appears in your first available inventory slot which can be in a container.
# May 05 2001 at 8:09 PM Rating: Default
I sat in ss for 9 hours tracking for spiders. in that 9 hours i got not a single one on tracking. My faction is Kindly, so no problem there.. so.. i'd have to debate about that so called 2 hour timer on the spider spawns... it's more like 10 or 12 if i don't get fed up and leave. I have been keeping see invisible up as well... so if they did spawn, i would see them, as i have on other occasions.. just never killed them ..
