You say, 'Hail, Megosh Thistlethorn'

Megosh Thistlethorn says 'Greetings Connun! I am Megosh Thistlethorn first Ranger of the Storm Reapers of Rivervale. I journeyed many years ago to the Surefall Glade far to the west of our lovely shire. It was there I trained with the human and half-elven rangers that like the Storm Reapers are faithful disciples of Karana. I have returned now to Rivervale to teach our interested young people the ways of a ranger of the Storm Lord, so that we may defend our shire and the wilds of Norrath from the [evil forces] that would see it destroyed. '

You say, 'what evil forces'

Megosh Thistlethorn says 'Currently the Death Fist Clan of Orcs, a race of bloodthirsty humanoids concerned only with expanding their territory and slaughtering all who stand in their path, threatens our homeland. The Orcs have long had a minor presence in the Misty Thicket but lately they have been amassing in greater numbers. The Death Fist has been chopping down our trees and quarrying rock from the nearby mountains. We know only that they have been shipping the materials to the commonlands and stockpiling it for what purpose we do not know. As rangers of the Storm Reapers it is our duty to [stop the desecration] of the thicket. '

You say, 'I will stop the desecration'

Megosh Thistlethorn says 'First you must outfit yourself for battle with the Death Fists. Seek Bipdo Hargin here in Rivervale and give him this letter. He will instruct you further on getting yourself outfitted for the tasks ahead. Once you have been outfitted in a suit of Thorn Mail Armor return to me and I will instruct you for your [next task]. '

Your Location is -222.35, -71.61, -21.81

Hand Bipdo the note Megosh gave you

Bipdo Hargin says 'Pleased to meet you Connun! You must be one of Megosh's new trainees. Megosh has asked me to help get you outfitted in a suit of armor to protect you from the vile weapons of Rivervales foes. I have assembled a kit for you that will allow you to construct the armor pieces once you have gathered the necessary components. The required components vary according to which piece of Thorn Mail armor you are planning on assembling. Do you wish to craft a [thorn mail coif], a [thorn mail bracer], [thorn mail gloves], [thorn mail boots], [thorn mail sleeves], [thorn mail leggings], or a [thorn mail tunic]. '

You say, 'I wish to craft a thorn mail coif'

Bipdo Hargin says 'To assemble a Thorn Mail Coif you will require two [silk thread], ruined thorn drakeling scales, and a giant thicket rat skull. Once you have the necessary components combine them in your Mail Assembly Kit with this Tattered Coif Pattern. '

And btw, yes, almost all the components are NO DROP.

Nice items for the effort i think, beat the heck out of patchwork for the non-twink set. The reason for the scarcity of the Drakes i think is a sort of penalty by Verant for rangers having track, guess it'd be too easy if there was more than one drake spawn an hour.

Ahh, just as a side note, the drop rates on the components needed for most of these items is ASTOUNDINGLY low. And to make it even better/worse,the spawn rates on the Thorn Drakelings is most heinous. The other mobs spawn more often, but refer back to the ASTOUNDINGLY low drop rates.

Hehe, otherwise pretty straightforward.

So far its just paid to be out there earning your xp and keep checking track for the mobs you need, otherwise you're going to pull your hair out and go nuts 8)

Good luck on all these HLF racial class armors !

(you're going to need it)

and for a halfling, pulling your hair out is a horrible fate indeed...
