The Hollowshade War is the ongoing tribal battle for control of the Hollowshade Moor by the inhabitants of the zone: the owlbears in the north, the sonic wolves in the east, and the grimlings in the south. Occasionally one side will spontaneously attack another, but you can cause one side to attack another by going to any of these locations (owlbear cave in the north, sonic wolf cave in the east, grimling village in the south) and killing the named NPC there and its two guardians, causing another side to attack. Sometimes you need to kill one or more placeholders to get the named NPC to spawn. If all three sides still exist in the zone, which side attacks will be random.

You will know an attack has begun when you see a zonewide message to the effect of: "One side begins to attack another [in a particular location]. The NPCs at this location look very nervous." Two things happen after this zonewide message: A set of five non-KOS attackers sets out from the attacking location, and a set of five permarooted, summoning, non-KOS defenders spawns out front of the defending location. Unless you kill the defenders, the defenders will always defeat the attackers. If you kill the defenders, the attackers will always win. If you're not happy with which side is attacking, kill the attackers; they're quite weak. If the attackers are victorious, they will enter the defending location, despawning and causing everything in the defending tribe at that location to despawn, to be replaced by members of the attacking tribe, including named NPCs (or their placeholders).

Once one side controls all three locations, you will see a zonewide message to the effect of: "The Vah Shir retreat to the city." You will then see a second zonewide message to the effect of: "Big named NPC roars its triumph." The Vah Shir at the fort will run back to the city, and "Big named NPC" will now spawn in the abandoned fort, surrounded by 5-6 of its closest friends.

Killing the big named resets the zone, causing the tribes to reappear in their original locations and the Vah Shir vendors to reappear in the fort.

Additional notes: Some items only drop from particular NPCs, and some NPCs only spawn when a particular tribe controls a particular location.

I was in HM today, and the grimlings had won the war. So, on the way back through, I killed the Grimling prince in the outpost. Several hours later, on the way back, I noticed the outpost back to Vah Shir. So, yes, it still works.

WOW! It is absolutely amazing how many rewards this quest gives. It's really tough, but I think it's worth it. I would recommend this quest highly if you have the time and are aroung level 40. :)
war & substances
# Jan 19 2007 at 3:26 AM Rating: Decent
To restart the war kill the main guys in the little fort near shar vahl. i learned something about the substances, they drop near on the island south in the zone, and they drop more when the entire zone isn't taken over by one race, so it will take a little longer to kill the main guy in the fort then have your race take over the south again, but it seems to be worth it

Can someone please tell me how you reset the war? I can't get 3 sides to take over no matter what I do. I get the owlbears to take over most everything then I go and kill the grimling leader at one of the caves and the stupid grimlings go and start an invasion and win which doesn't make any sense at all since they should be the ones being taken over, not the owlbears! All I want to do is farm substances for shadowscream armor and now I just want to give up and just make mistletoe cutting sickles. The outpost is always occupied by cats!

An Owlbear Screechmaw is the PH for a named owlbear at the south camp, but for the time being the PH is the *only* special MOB spawning at the southern camp's chief tent - no named, no defenders.

War not happening
# Sep 18 2005 at 6:33 AM Rating: Decent
Correct me if im missing a point, but the war was supposed to start by killing one of the named at one of the camps right? I did that today after DoD patch, and nothing happened... A wiz joined me and tried to trigger it as he used to do, but he said it was bugged. Anyone can confirm this?

I've been having a lot of fun with this war - at first I thought the only point was to kill the end mob that spawned after it's race took over the zone. Then I realized that since each camp has a leader, that leader would change depending on who controlled that camp and offer different loot than the previous enhabitant. I'm not sure if the zone goes back to normal automatically, but i had time to take out the leader (or PH) of all three camps twice before taking out the main mob that takes over the merchant camp. A lot of good items here, even for higher levels. Be aware that since Hollowshade is off of Shar Vahl, there can be low level chars killing the rockhoppers and beetles, so give fair warning when the merchant camp is about to turn against them :)

Okay here is my beef. I am a Vah Shir Bard.. trying in vein to complete my Sonic wolf bane quest. I need to get the grimling chieftans staff to finish what has been a real hassle. The Zone has everything where it needs to be and I am farming the grimlings to get the item and then a single high lvl character (has happened well over 20 times now different characters each time) starts the war killing the grimulings first then leaves the zone without completing the war. I am so frustraited at these 60th lvl characters I wish I could slap them all upside the head. IF YOU START THE WAR YOU BETTER FINISH IT!!!!!!!!!

I agree that if you start it, you should finish it and be courteous to others in the zone. However, I've left the war unfinished a few out of the hundred times I've compelted it - early on, I died a couple times (in my 40s) and other times I just had a run of bad luck where the controlling race wouldn't attack and I had to get back to the real world. It should be rare, but there are a few valid reasons... If nothing else, give warnings to the zone that once race is about to switch or the friendly merchant camp is about to get ugly...
RE: Please Dont be jerks
# Sep 29 2004 at 3:08 PM Rating: Default
Addendum to the above rant. If you want to do the war, check the zone and /shout to everyone there "Is anyone farming?". It is considered courtesy people.

To get Owlbears to win:
Kill grimling chieftain and kill the defenders that spawn about 10-20 seconds later. Camp the sonic wolf cave and kill fiends until defenders spawn. Kill them and run to the outpost. Owlbears take over and it rains like a SoB
(hint: stand next to the wall behind the outpost and Shriat Chakku, or whatever, will agro with 1 or 2 adds easily offtanked or tanked) if you can't target chakku from outside the outpost on the mountain).
To get Grimlings to win:
Start at sonic wolves and kill named or PH of named (packleader). Move onto the owlbear cave and wait out kill the furious owlbears until the defenders spawn. Run to the outpost. It's easier to be inside the outpost at the spawn point of the named grimling (prince somethingorother) before they take over.
To get sonic wolves to take over:
Kill named owlbear or PH of named. Run over to the grimlings and stay on the far east penninsula. Kill the invaders if they spawn. Run to the defenders spawn point (next to the chieftain's hut) to kill the defenders. Go to the outpost and proceed the same way here as you would with the owlbears.

Your druid should own this. I started soloing it with my beastlord in my very low 50s. I now destroy the zone, solo as a 55.

Is there something interesting in here that I missed? Or were you aiming for tradeskill stuff?

I soloed it at 52 with my chanter, and the interesting thing that I was after is the "eye of the owlbear mother," a flowing thought item that is really easy to get. I would guess that the other caster-type people were after the same thing.

I solo'd this easily with 51 Wiz, now at 66 i can do it in bout 30min at most (depends on if defenders spawn right away on last camp, if so like 20min)
How to work the war
# Oct 08 2003 at 12:24 AM Rating: Excellent
Ok, i will not go into detail about all the mini bosses of the zone or how to get them, u can figure that out from what i give you here and others have posted. To start there are 3 final victor situations: Grimlings win, Wolves win, or Owlbears win.

If you want the Grimlings to win follow these directions:
-Kill the named or PH in the eastern wolf caves
-Grimlings will attack the east
-Kill wolf defenders before grimlings get there
-Then head to the north caves (owlbear)
-When owlbear invaders spawn, kill them
-If none spawn then you got lucky, kill the defenders
-If invaders spawned continue to kill the waves of owl invaders until finally grimlings attack. This usually takes no more then 4 times of owls attacking until grimlings get up the nerves.
-Go kill Prince, congratulations

If you want the Wolves to win follow these directions:
-Kill the named or PH in the northern owlbear caves
-Wolves will attack the north
-Kill owl defenders before wolves get there
-Stay at the north caves
-When grimling invaders arrive, kill them
-If none spawn then you got lucky, run south and kill the defenders
-If invaders spawned continue to kill the waves of grimling invaders until finally wolves attack. This usually takes no more then 4 times of grimlings attacking until wolves get up the nerves.
-Go kill BigDog, congratulations

If you want the Owlbears to win follow these directions:
-Kill Grimling Chieftain in the south
-Owls will attack the south
-Kill grimling defenders before owlbears get there
-Then head to the east caves (wolves)
-When wolf invaders spawn, kill them
-If none spawn then you got lucky, kill the defenders
-If invaders spawned continue to kill the waves of wolf invaders until finally owlbears attack. This usually takes no more then 4 times of wolves attacking until owlbears get up the nerves.
-Go kill Mother owl, congratulations

What happens is attacks go counterclockwise. When one race owns 2 camps, the other race attacks one of them, but on occasion, the ones that own 2 camps will attack the final one. So sometimes the war can take 45 minutes to an hour, other times only 15 minutes.

Attacks seem to happen every 12 min if you just kill PHs of the trigger nameds.

#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 29 2003 at 4:09 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) They really need to put a time limit on this war as the high levelers keep this thing going far too long. I can understand the greed involved but dang, give it a rest for a while and let us lowbies who are doing our quests finish the quests. it's hard enough as it is trying to get molars from sonic wolf pups without this war keeping them off the fields.

Yup, after this last patch, it sure is working properly. I was able to manipulate and win the war two times last night. All in all, I am glad to see it working properly, I wish it was when i was of a level to have had use of the items that drop from it! At 62 the only use now is farming the substances, which is a good thing in and of itself.

Note: For those trying to farm Sonic Bane quest items while someone if farming the substances: Just ask them to no be flipping the whole zone. The substances ONLY drop off the islands, and most of the Sonic Wolf items drop off land areas. So you really shouldn't be competing for a specific mob!
# Apr 24 2003 at 4:20 PM Rating: Decent
It looks like the coders at SOE finally got off their duff. The war seems to be working now. Previously I have observed that one a faction took over all 3 areas, there was no chief spawn, so that the chief could not be slain and the zone not be reset. I observed the war run from start to finish yesterday, and saw the zone reset. This is great news for those of you who eed quest items, or for aspiring GM smiths who want to be able to farm wailing/shrieking substances on the islands. It should now be possible to set teh zone back to its defaults in about half an hour or so, simply by turning the crank and winning the war and killing the chief.

This is a wonderfull raiding zone, however; there are people that need quest items that only drop when the war isnt running. Example yesterday I was trying to complete my post sonic wolf bane quest. I needed Owlbear and Sonic Wolf talon and the staff from gremlings. 3 mins after ths zone was popped by a gm, 2 lv 60+ people popped in zone and forced the gremlings to wolvs and the bears to wolves. (IE Farming Shreeking stuff for armor) This destroyed any chance of me finishing the quest till the zone is repoped again.

My point.

If your going to farm pop the other two camps, farm, then kill the named that refreshes the zone.

Hollowshade Moor War Guide by Infernostar Fatalblow, Wizard on Cazic Thule

What a cool zone this is, I love what the designer did with Hollowshade Moor. Very unique and unlike anything on Norrath.

3 Tribes all at war just off to the northeast of Shar Vhal in the hills of Hollowshade Moor. In the “North” (actually NW part of zone) the Owlbears control a cave. In the “East” the Sonic Wolves control a cave. And in the “South” the Grimlings control two camps, the furthest one south is the main camp.

How to start the war:
When a leader (really an 11min 45sec PH) in one camp is killed, the war begins. One tribe randomly will attack another. There will be a shout in the zone. The first sentence is who is Attacking, and the second represents the tribe that is defending. (Coders have removed the shouts as of late to prevent zone from being “stuck”, but players seem to work around this and do it anyways)

Defenders are spawned once the call to war is made. Usually about 10-15 minutes after the leader is killed, but has happened sooner than this. The defenders will ALWAYS win, unless Player Characters help defeat them.

If the defenders are defeated the attackers and that tribe take over the camp.

If a camp is taken over, the tribe that now controls that camp will spawn named bosses there as well.

Once all 3 camps are controlled by a tribe, the Shar Vhal retreat from their outpost and a “ruler” spawns inside the outpost with several defenders.

Once the “ruler” is killed, the other tribes retake over their camps and peace is restored so to say.

Grimling Chieftain: He is located at the southern most hut. 5 Defenders spawn to protect the Grimlings.

Growlik or PH A Sonic Packleader: Inside the cave on the right-hand side is where their spawn point is. 3 Defenders spawn to protect the Sonic Wolves.

Skrietat`Chu / Skrietat`Cha (EDIT: SINCE ZONE FIX, NO LONGER NAMED IN WEST CAVE) or their PH Owlbear Fleshrender: PH or named is located in the furthest cave to the back and the one that turns left towards the back (I refer to them as North and West owlbear caves). 3 Defenders spawn to protect the Owlbears.

NOTE: The ruler’s corpse only lasts about 18-20 seconds before the zone resets and the corpse poofs. Each ruler drops both Melee and Non-melee gear. Most of it is NO DROP. So have your looting rules/rolls decided before killing him and be QUICK and courteous when it’s your turn. Usually only 2 or 3 people can view/loot at all.

WARNING: The Defenders will not move from their spots and WILL summon you to them.

HELPFUL: The zone is still not working properly. When one tribe controls the zone, sometimes the ruler does not spawn. Send a /petition and a GM (not a guide or apprentice guide) can reset the zone.

Ok there is a nice little item available when the Grimlings are in control of the Owlbear cave. This cap has a 3% modify to meditation, which may not seem like much, but DOES stack with clarity, KEI and spiritual purity. You must go to the back left of the owlbear cave and kill the named Grimling that you will see there. The best way is to invis past all the other mobs first. This named grimling will drop one of two things. A melee class haste belt or this cap. both items are no drop. Myself (necromancer) went with there with a Magi, warrior, and a sk. Some people forget that when you help one faction of this war win over another you miss out on the items that the named of that mob drops. Personally, I always go in and kill the named first then help the agressor take them out. Then it's a matter of wash, rinse and repeat! Happy hunting.

Ok...here is my two cp. Spending many months of play time here..I have discovered the following. You can trigger the war to start by killing the names. 1. They must control their own starting camp. 2. After taking a camp you must help them take the next camp within the first attack. Getting the End mob to spawn. 1. You must kill all the named spawns outside the caves. 2. If they despawn or are killed by another it will disrupt the spawn and break the end spawn. Yes, this is a SharVahl quest..many of the ppl in SharVahl will speak of it. More info to come as I live here now.

Thanks for the bit on make sure that they spawn the first time. This one was new to me, and works quite well. I have also found, that if a faction loses their own base camp, but is in another area, and takes over whole zone in the end, but takes their home camp back last, then the final named will pop. For example if sonic wolfs take grimmlings, then owlbears take sonic wolfs, then sonic wolfs take owlbears, and then finally take their own cave back, Gnarlik will pop. I have a website that explains it all. I am still making it, but as of right now, you can at the least see where all nameds pop, and a great wealth of info on how to run war in your favor. Soon to come, all drops, and pics. Check it out here at http://www.geocities.com/hollowshademoor/HollowshadeMain.html I think that you will find it help a lot. GL to you all.
