You say, 'Hail, Salmekia Treherth'

Salmekia Treherth says 'Welcome to Surefall Glade Etaan, the home of the Jaggedpine Treefolk. I help teach young druids the ways of our people. We have worshipers of both Karana, the Storm Lord, and Tunare, the All Mother, living here in the glade. If you are a new druid I will help you obtain a [suit of clothing] that will offer comfort and protection while working in the wilds and help protect you from the weapons of the Gnolls that wish to take these lands.'

You say, 'What suit of new clothing'

Salmekia Treherth says 'You must use this specially prepared Curing Kit to craft the clothing. Each article of clothing requires different materials for its construction. Do you plan on crafting Pine Druid [Gloves], Pine Druid [Boots], a Pine Druid [Bracer], a Pine Druid [Cap], Pine Druid [Leggings], Pine Druid [Sleeves], or a Pine Druid [Tunic]? When you have been outfitted and are ready I will tell you of a [task] that you can assist with.'

You say, 'What boots'

Salmekia Treherth says 'To craft Pine Druid Boots you require two [silk thread], ruined gnoll leather boots, two giant field rat whiskers, and a large whiskered bat fur. Once you have the necessary components combine them in your Curing Kit with this Tattered Boot Pattern.'

Some thoughts

As an untwinked level 9 Human Druid who has completed all the Pine Druid quests except one (a stranger gave me Splitpaw Hide Gloves which are superior to the PD ones) I thought I'd pass on a few tips that might help some of you starting out. Because of the difference in stats I figured a Human Druid would be quite a bit harder to play than a Halfling or Wood Elf but it seems Verant has balanced the class nicely by adding the PD quests and providing a terrific hunting area for newbies. The Qeynos Hills hunting area area, mostly around the Qeynos town zone line, is filled with drops that sell for 2 gold or more. Since EQ newbies crave money for spells and equipment, this is truly the happy hunting ground. First, get the free 8-slot bag from the PD quests. Next kill a Fire Beetle for an eye and buy Flame Lick. Then spend you money on 8-slot bags. After the first level focus on blues. I know it's slower, but go for the loot. What's the point of getting to a higher level quicker if you're too broke to do anything. King Snakes and rats are particularly good but even skels drop a 2g tibia. The best is a plague tail from rats, sells for 1p, 7g. Stick with blues and even some greens to turn over the area and keep your eye out for Giant Field Rats. The toughest loot to acquire are GFR whiskers so never pass up a chance at them. Buy spells and leather armor and accumulate the PD quest no-drops as you go. The Large King Snake Skin is dropped by a Large Snake in the Qeynos Catacombs (don't ask why). You can get Spiderling Silk in Everfrost. Use Camolage to get through Black Burrow. GFR Pelts and Ruined Gnoll Leather armor are NOT no-drop so you can buy them from merchants in Qeynos and Surefall. As to the PD weapon, that was a bit of a fluke. While working on building my stats at level 9 in Surefall a generous stranger buffed me up a bunch. I knew where the Bloodsaber Defiler was (level 12 I think), so I went and beat hell out of her and took her head. Had to travel to Halas to get the sharpening stones. It is my experience that if you sit in a high traffic area when working on your stats, some nice person will throw a a buff or two on you.

Never beg. It's demeaning.

Actually, the numbers above are the slightest bit off. Since you make two bracers, you need to double the amount that the quest says. So, it's 17 Silk Threads, 6 Giant Field Rat Whiskers, and 2 Ruined Gnoll Leather Bracers. All the rest of the numbers are correct.

I couldn't get the bracer pattern to make the second bracer. A message stating that, "Duplicate Lore items are not allowed" appeared.

Most of the newbie armor quests are like this. Complete the first bracer then get the second pattern and make the second one.

I am on server MT, And am trying to do the pine boot quest. My question is: Is there any place other than the Qeynos Hills to kill giant field rats for the two whiskers that is need for the boots.
I have been trying to finish this quest and that is all I have left for completion?
Any info would be much appreciated.
Thank you in advance.

For Newbie Gear finding the Giant Rat whiskers is almost impossible. Been hunting them for a week now and found only one, but have killed thousands of Giant field rats. Which they themselfs dont appear so very much.

I'm having exactly the same problem. It's ridiculous when you need 6 of the things for the whole suit of armour.

Even with training everything on the guards to try and increase spawn I still only see about 4 rats per hour.

Had 2 drops so far in about 100 mobs. At least that's what it feels like anyways

I understand the field rat wiskers are hard to find, but what about sludge spyderlings?! I am having a hell of a time finding them. Do they show up anywhere except in the Quenos catacombs??? Dose anyone have any tips for finding them???

You can hunt spiderlings in Everfrost. The threads are the same and work just as well. And the spiderlings are all over the place. (Note: Spiderling silks make threads. Spider silks make silk swatches)

I am a lvl 45 druid halfelf and I wanted to complete my full set of no drop armor (because I play on rallos zek) When I first started the quest the rats were rare and their drops were rarer. The giant field rats drop whiskers about 1 in every 8 to 10 kills, and sometimes those whiskers are regular giant whiskers not giant field ones. This was averaged on one days of work for me (about 6 hours for everything needed) as I obtained a full set in one day.

The easiest and fastest way to get these guys to spawn is hunt along the fork in the road with the sign marker. A guard usually wanders around this area. Run around smacking everything you can and train the mobs onto the guard, this increases the spawn rate of the giant field rats. Try to smack several bats and other rats into him, they seemed to trigger the giant field rats the most. Once I started doing this I was getting whiskers 1 in about every 4 or 5 kills because they spawned more frequently rather than running around tracking them (which I so foolishly did at first.
The rats seemed to pop near the left and right qeynos walls in the hills before the zone point.

Hope I helped and if I did rate my post!

This armor is DRUID ONLY, Human and Half-Elf ONLY. No other classes/races may wear this.

I hunt the Innoruuk Server.

The rarest Drop for some pieces of the armor is the Giant Field Rat Whisker. The mob (Giant Field Rat) does spawn in some quantity in Qeynos Hills area but the Drop is Rare. The mob spawns mostly on the plain near the NQeynos zone, but also in the hills near there as you head towards Surefall Glade. They rarely seem to appear in the area immediately near SFG entrace.

What makes hunting these creatures hard is the numbe of players who are working this new quest and the fact that there is also a new Ranger Armor quest that also use these whiskers. Rangers get tracking at level 6(?) and can often get to the mobs before a druid can, who doesn't get tracking until MUCH later. This can be frustrating to a Druid when rangers are also hunting the mob.

Druids should group with a Ranger with tracking while doing this quest, especially while it is still a new quest. Be prepared for a lot of rat killing. Giant rats and Large Field Rats also drop a Whisker, but these Whiskers DO NOT work in this quest.

The Ruined Gnoll armor pieces drop MAINLY on Gnolls, but a friend told me (while helping me scavenge up the pieces) that he got a couple of peices off of Scrawnys. I would recommend sticking to Gnolls. However, in the Ranger Armor Quest, the Ruined Chain Armor drops off of many different gnolls, including Brawny's and Guardians. I took my 38 Pally in to harvest these items and went deep. I found the pieces (chain) on many, the leather on a few.

Both the Ranger Version and Druid Version of these new Armor Quests are all green in coloring.
