This quest is for good aligned gnome clerics.

You say, 'Hail, Iony Gredlong'

Iony Gredlong says 'It is very nice to meet you Gearsword. I am Iony Gredlong Priestess of the Underfoot. I coordinate all the training for new clerics here in the Deep Musing. If you are a [cleric] then I might just have some tests for you that will challenge your wisdom as well as your fighting abilitys.'

You say, 'I am a cleric'

Iony Gredlong says 'Well you would certainly be eligible for my training then young Gearsword. I have a number of armor recipes that I give to young clerics to make sure that when they leave the comfort of the Steamfont Mountains they are ready for whatever battles they may face. If you are [interested in creating your own armor] then all you must do is simply ask and I will give you instructions to get started.'

You say, 'I am interested in creating my own armor'

Iony Gredlong says 'I am always happy to see an eager young one like yourself! Brell certainly takes pride in all young gnomes that draw power from him to give life so you should consider yourself very special. To create your own armor you are going to collect [various items] from Ak`Anon and Steamfont. You will then combine them in this assembly kit. Once you have made a material you will place it in a forge along with molds that I will present to you to create your armor.'

You say, 'what are the various items?'

Iony Gredlong says 'There are numerous items that you will need to collect and combine in your kit. I will present you for the recipe for Shortnoble Platemail [Helms], [Bracers], [Armguards], [Boots], [Greaves], [Gauntlets] and [Breastplates]. When you are ready to attempt a specific piece please let me know what piece you wish to [craft] and I will give you the necessary mold along with the recipe.'

You say, 'I want to craft a breastplate'

Iony Gredlong says 'I believe you are ready to craft and gather the components for the most difficult piece of Shortnoble Platemail. To create your breastplate material you will need to combine 5 Bricks of Crude Bronze, 1 Clockwork Spider Thorax Plate, 1 Brownie Parts, 1 Aviak Talon 1 Scrap Metal and the evil Halorniop`s Insignia in your assembly kit. Once you have created the proper material take it to a forge along with this mold to fashion your very own Shortnoble Platemail Breastplate. Return to me for one [final favor] I have to ask of you after you have completed your breastplate.'

You say, 'what is the final favor?'

Iony Gredlong says 'I thank you for returning to me young Gearsword. I must say that it is now quite clear that you are very capable of completing any task I should assign you due to your eagerness to learn. I am currently in need of a few specific items to craft a weapon worthy of any servant of Brell. It is my hope that I can pass these out to our new recruits quite soon. Will you [collect the items I require]?'

You say, 'I will collect the items you require'

Iony Gredlong says 'I need 3 Flawless Harpy Claws and 1 Ebon Drake Backbone still to have all the items necessary to craft this new mace. Once I have these items I can make a Shortnobles Walking Staff. For your trouble I will offer you my first staff made should I be able to create one. I hope to see you soon!'

Other way to get the staff

You can get the Walking Staff of the Shortnoble by Shared Task 'Dethroning the Emperor' from V`Lynn Renloe in PoK good side or 'Below the Field of Bone' from Barrenzin in PoK evil side.
(Yes, You get other reward if you not Brell Gnome Cleric.)
I think SoE is no intention that correct this quest.
Do either task if you still want this staff.
(But I recommend good side task now. Because task
'Below the Field of Bone' have Bug that you need go into underground cave in the instanced Kurn's Tower, but no way to get out without Gate, Group Gate or Wait 6hour and use Return Home.

'Dethroning the Emperor'

'Below the Field of Bone'

Ebon Drake Backbone

The Flawless Harpy Claws are easy... they dropped every 8 kills for me. The Ebon Drake Backbone I have not found. I've killed many drakes (lesser, young, and drakeling), but none dropped the backbone. However, the obvious answer is that they drop from Ebon Drakes: ie not from the lesser, young or drakeling. There is a MOB missing from Steamfont Mountains. Until Sony fixes this bug, the backbones will be very difficult to find. Also noticeable is the drop rate: common. If Sony corrected the spawn of "an Ebon Drake", the backbones would return. If you get a chance, contact sony and send a bug report. If spammed, Sony might reply.

till the GM's make the back bone more of a common drop I rate this quest a 1.00. I spent 2 hours killing lesser Ebon Drake, then 3 housr counting and killed 80 of them and still no dorp of it. I was just there the other day pling and helping a RL friend get his mage going and he found on on the lesser Ebon drake. so today I made me a clr and got every thing I need but the back bone.

and no The earth elements do not drop them or the flawles claws. only harps drop the claws and you can get 1 about every 5-7 kills of the harps.

Time for this quest= Hours.

so if you are a clr gnm and want it use /ooc to find it because the only other was is with master luck.

I've seen claws drop from harpies, definitely... but after about 150 ebon drake[ling, young, and lesser] kills, I have not seen a single backbone... 4 straight days doing nothing except looking... kinda sucky for a freakin' noob quest

Can we verify where these parts drop from? I have had the harpy claws drop from the harpies themselves but have also had reports that they do indeed drop from the earth elementals.

Which mob drops the ebon drake backbones? Right now I'm killing earth elementals, lesser ebon drakes, and harpies, trying to get these two to drop.

As of 6/5 :
I got Flawless Harpy Claws off ONLY Harpies.
Ebon Drake backbone, seen only 1, got it off an Earth elemental.

This staff, along with the CLR undead spell line, will come in quite handy for lvling in Unrest ;)
Cya there!

I have seen two backbones on earth elementals, never on the drakes themselves, but I suppose it is like the harpy claw - you can probably find it on either.

The flawless claws have dropped from both Harpies and Earth Elementals for me...and from both with equal chance...good luck little one.
Flawless Harpy Claws

The Flawless harpy claws are found on the earth elementals in Steamfont, NOT on the harpies.

Guess the claws get stuck when harpies attack the elementals :)

I would think that makes them Clawless, not Flawless! (It's just the bardness coming through)
