You say, 'Hail, Corporal Kent'

Corporal Kent looks up from his shift report, 'Ho there, who are you? Are you reporting for duty or just annoying me?'

You say, 'I am reporting for duty'

Corporal Kent says 'Outstanding, now tuck in that tunic. We are trying out some new Shadowscream armor from Barkhem, the smith in Shar Vahl, and some of his students. They will cut us a nice deal if we deliver some of the supplies, so go fill this up with shrieking substances for me. What are you staring at? Go!! And suck in that gut!'

You receive an eight-slot Sonic Receptacle. Go to Tenbrous Mountians and collect 8 Shrieking Substances that drop off of Dire Sonic Wolves. Combine the 8 Shrieking Substances in the container and hand in the result to Corporal Kent.

Corporal Kent says 'Well done, (Your Name Here), this should really help keep our costs down. Here, take these, and keep up the good work. Dismissed!'

farming subs

In Hollowshade, get the wolves to own the Grimling Camps, and keep them there. They will drops tons and tons of the subs. Just keep killing, and farming.
This also works with the owlbears and the Wailing Subs. If they too own the islands, they will drop the subs.
Must be all the Salass Moss that grows on the islands....

Nathyn's Sonic Wolves

If you are doing the Nathyn's guards for exp, the two sonic wolf guards drop a fair amount of shrieking substance. And you are right near Corporal Kent to turn it in. This quest seems to give a bigger positive faction hit to Katta guards than killing the Nathyn guards; I killed many Nathyn guards but did not become kindly with Katta guards until doing this quest a third time.
associated factioin hit for group
# Aug 18 2002 at 12:06 AM Rating: Decent
Kent wouldnt give me the quest...conned dubious to the guy. So group member did the turn in and he was the only one of the group that received the faction hits, although all of us got the xp hit.
Drop Zone change after patch?
# Aug 07 2002 at 11:39 AM Rating: Default
I found 3 shrieking substances in Hollowshade Moor. The Dire Sonic Wolves were near the owlbear cave at the time I killed them. Hope that helps.
RE: Drop Zone change after patch?
# Mar 12 2003 at 4:20 PM Rating: Decent
That only matters if the sonic wolves win the zone war. There are 3 races and if the owlbears or grimlings win there more than likely wont be any sonic wolves in the zone for a while.
Where is this guy

Go up the stars from the bank. When you reach the top turn right and go past the first building. just past the second gate there is a building on the Left with staris going up. Inside on the first floor on the right is a room Corpral Kent is in there. Have an empty spot for the box.

He is in the building with the cleric, monk, ranger, paladin, rogue and warrior trainers.

Did this quest today (9th June) and it was giving a reward; a few "Validus Custodus Flight Arrows" and a "Combine Throwing Spear". Neither were worth much to a vendor, though.
RE: Reward
# Jul 27 2002 at 1:43 AM Rating: Excellent
Other rewards include a Combine Throwing Knife dam 5 34 range 55 and a Combine Shuriken dam 4 24 range 70 both of which can be used by casters.

Ok, there is NO WAY I got shrieking substance off of Dire Sonic Wolves, and it wasnt for the Katta quest either. I got a Shrieking substance off of either a Sonic Wolfling or a Sonic Wolf Pup in Hollowshade Moor. I'm not sure which it was, I was running for my life from Sonic Wolves which conned red at the time. So maybe you can get them off of these little wolves at a lower level. I know Shrieking Substance is needed in the Shar Vahl Smithing quest as well as Wailing Substance off of Owlbears and Grimy Owlbear Cubs.

You can also get the Shrieking Substances off the "smaller" wolves in Hollowshade Moor, if the wolves are helped to take over the grimling camps as part of the Hollowshade War. Smiley: twocents

This doesn't result in an item; it's a pure faction quest.
Seru Faction Hit
# Mar 10 2002 at 10:29 AM Rating: Default
Seru is indeed a town in between Merus Seru and Dawnshroud and the hands of Seru are the guards in Merus Seru. So it seems to gain faction in one town you lose it in the other. I don't think the reward is worth it I think I will destroy the substances I have collected *sigh*.
Hollowshade also
# Feb 18 2002 at 12:43 PM Rating: Decent
This crap drops off of just plain ole Sonic Wolves in the cave on the edge of Hollowshade Moor also. Easier to kill than Dire Wolves

Nathyn Illuminious
# Dec 30 2001 at 1:38 AM Rating: Decent
How big is the Nathyn Illuminious hit? I got two stacks of substance, hate to go kos with him, he seems pretty hardcore.

And is Seru a city or does it matter?

RE: Nathyn Illuminious
# Mar 19 2002 at 10:02 AM Rating: Default
Nathyn lives in Katta not sanctus. that house with the guard sonic wolves... its his. the guards in and arround it are all on his faction. for some reason the better you get with the rest of the city the worse you are with him. also, to get the robe of truth you have to break into his bedroom. i wasnt there but my friend who got in said as soon as he was there he was pouned by some guy who hits for 300 to a lvl 60. if it was nathyn and he spawned when someone broke in hes kos to all.

I don't think it's that bad. I've done this quest a few times and have taken a hit or 2 on a different quest that involves him directly, but I'm still dubious (which I think he started at). I'm about to do this quest 2 or 3 more times, I'll tell ya if I notice a change.

If you are a smart talking player like me and you respond to Coporal Kent with a answer like:
"I am here to annoy to you" which I foolishly did you will receive a major negative faction hit for Validus Custoidus (the Guard faction). Be Warned. I went from indifferent to apprehensive for my smart mouth.

just fry some shadowmen to get it back up
RE: Watch out

It's not major... in fact I think it is almost nothing, you must have been right on the cusp, like I was (probably everyone starts that way). I was fine again after one vamp hunting session and I expect much sooner than that.

But you have to admit, that's pretty damn funny
Faction quest?
# Dec 09 2001 at 1:58 PM Rating: Decent
I think this quest may be based on faction, the better faction the better item(s) you may get. The quest giver says something about screaming armour, I assume simlar to you other Velious quest if you have maxed faction you will rarely get a piece of "screaming" armor.

Kill the vampires to raise you faction.
RE: Faction quest?
# Dec 28 2001 at 2:12 AM Rating: Decent
Screaming Steel armour is player-crafted. To make it, you have to do a number of quests out of Shar Vahl and get a bunch of those "Wailing Substances" from the Owlbears and the "Shrieking Substances" from the Sonic Wolves.

It's chain-based armour... not quite as good AC as Ravenscale/Totemic/Ivy Etched, but not bad for kitties who don't plan on leaving Luclin.
RE: Faction quest?
# Jun 02 2002 at 11:04 PM Rating: Decent
I agree that it is not as good as your mid level class armor (Lambent in my case) but it is good for those armor slots that your main armor does not cover such as belts, collar, mask, etc.

He mentions the Vah Shir perhaps taking the box them instead will give out higher rewards
Crappy rewards
# Dec 07 2001 at 3:48 AM Rating: Default
this gives crappy thowing items like 1 combine throwing knife, i combine throwing axe, a combine shiruken and 2 crappy arrows.. not worth the time collecting the substances
RE: Crappy rewards
# Dec 07 2001 at 4:54 PM Rating: Decent
Hunt in Tenebrous for experience, pile up shrieking substances, turn them in for extra exp, decent faction and throwing weapons with which you can pull or just sell? What were you expecting? It isn't a hard quest- you can do it about a hundred times a day.
RE: Crappy rewards
# May 09 2003 at 3:15 PM Rating: Default
actually no exp from this quest.
Shrieking Subsstances

Seems to me you just need 8 shrieking substances which you get from Dire Sonic Wolves. I had a bunch but sold them before I knew this quest. They are stackable also...
RE: Shrieking Subsstances
# Dec 10 2001 at 2:35 PM Rating: Decent
Sorry, but they are no drop items. You can't sell them.

I did the quest and received the same throwing items. Not much but I was just hunting for the experience anyway. The faction and the extra experience for turning them in was just a bonus.
RE: Shrieking Subsstances
# May 06 2002 at 2:19 PM Rating: Decent
If someone says they are selling, trading, or doing anything that the No Drop tag prohibits, they are on Firiona Vie. There are very few No Drop items on that server.

Where I got Some
# Dec 06 2001 at 5:33 PM Rating: Decent
Dropped some of the rock looking pieces (onyx) in Maidens End from Xi Xiun's. They were no rent though i believe. But the mob dropped 2. Did the container have a combine button?

What you saw drop was 'swirling shadows', which is different than what the dire sonic wolves drop for this quest, '(a) shrieking subtance'. Swirling shadows are indeed no rent, but they are used for tailoring some new pieces of Luclin armor and might be used for Blacksmithing as well. If you are doing this quest, you need to look for the dire sonic wolves in Tenebrous Mountains.

on the named owlbear yelloweyes in paludal caverns is a no drop gem called "wailing element" or wailing something.. this is probably one of the eight items you need.

An item called "shrieking substance" drops off dire sonic wolves in the Tene mountains. Thats all you need for this quest.
