You say, 'Hail, Cheyloh Greenwood'

Cheyloh Greenwood gives a warm smile, 'Greetings traveler and welcome to Fort Jaggedpine, our humble, though suitable home. If you have need of my [wares or talents], then please do not hesitate to inquire. I am always more than willing to share our ancient knowledge with our kin of the outside world.'

You say, 'what wares or talents'

Cheyloh Greenwood says 'Here in the Jaggedpine, I serve as a seamstress and one of many protectors of our precious home. Our people will often come to me in search of my talents in the ways of weaving. Often times my father and his students will seek to borrow my knowledge of the natural world and The Rainkeeper to weave specific pieces of an [ancient suit of leather] worn by our most adept and dedicated of druids.''

You say, 'what is the ancient suit of leather'

Cheyloh Greenwood says 'When our ancestors were young to the Jaggedpine and the Throne of Karana's Thunder was in the fledgling years of its establishment, a young seamstress and druid by the name of Hymara Cloudweaver discovered the laws of accepting nature's gifts in return for our services in protecting her. Hymara used these gifts of the wilderness to sew a complex suit of armor, which she then wove energies of the wilderness into. These gifts were used solely for the purpose of the protection of the pine, and we uphold her legacy to t his day. The armor is acquired upon a [path of devotion] successfully walked by our most devoted of druids.''

You say, 'i will prove myself worthy of these gifts'

Cheyloh Greenwood raises a brow and gives another gentle smile toward Solkinx, 'Very well, my friend. If you wish to take upon yourself the task to prove your devotion to nature, I will be more than willing to lend my talents justly to your cause. There are several individual [pieces] to this mystic suit of armor, and each piece requires a test of your faith and dedication to that which you have declared your life to protect.

You say, 'what are these pieces'

Cheyloh Greenwood says 'My skills and knowledge of history extends my talents to the creation of the [leggings], [sleeves], [bracer], [boots], [gloves], and [circlet] of the Armor of the Pine. My father, Nolan Greenwood, is the only who holds the necessary faith and mastery in the knowledge of history that is needed to make the most sacred and powerful piece of this set -- the Tunic of the Pine. There are several components needed to complete each piece of armor that I specifically am able to create. Those components vary between each individual piece. You will need to endeavor through several tasks to complete the set, but as with nature, there is no true order to the tasks that you must complete. Tell me which piece you wish to [acquire], and I shall guide you as necessary.'

You say, 'I wish to acquire a bracer'

Cheyloh Greenwood says 'Then you shall work to obtain that which you desire, my friend. Nature's gifts are not given without justification and you must prove yourself worthy of this most sacred of our items. I will ask that you venture out into the wilds and procure the Polished Jade Blossoms and the Bracer of Braided Pine and return them to me. The Jade Blossoms are not traditional flora -- they are of the jade stones carved by our artisans and blessed by our elders. You will likely find them in the Potameid Caves, where many of our recently lost charms have turned up as of late. The Potameid Temptresses use the blossoms as charms around their necks, from what the scouts have gathered. To acquire the bracer, you must seek out Lerian Wyndrunner, who currently resides in the Surefall Glade, and seek his guidance.''

You say, 'what is the bracer of braided pine?'

Lerian Wyndrunner says 'This is an item that you will need to work hard to obtain, my friend, but I shall guide you through this task -- if you can appeal to the world that you have dedicated your life to and receive her acceptance and gifts. I will need two specific items from you to create that which Cheyloh has requested of you. Those items are the Black Rawhide Bracer and the [Braids of Pine]. The rangers of the Jaggedpine Treefolk have informed me that Ryleen Bladespur, one of the poachers to have recently infested our forest, has made her way to South Karana to sell much of her stolen wears within the underground market of Norrath. Seek her out and you will find the bracer.''

You say, 'what are braids of pine?'

Lerian Wyndrunner says 'This item you will need to make on your own by carefully weaving strands of Shadowjade Moss, Jaggedpine Needles, and Potameid Braids into one delicate strand. The forest will offer the Shadowjade Moss and Jaggedpine Needles to you if she deems you worthy of her gifts. The braids, however, you must take from the Potameid Wildlings of the Hatchling River. Be sure that your mastery in the ways of tailoring are in the forefront of your mind when you attempt this feat, for anything less will result in the destruction of these delicate materials.''

Ryleen Bladespur is roughly the same as the two previous Bladespurs, and can be found in South Karana, south-west of the aviak village. Potameid wildlings are light blue at 60, immune to snare/root/slow/stun, and if the braids are on their loot table then they're realy realy rare.

Note as yet that this quest is most likely uncompleted by anyone. Reason is that the polished jade blossoms that drop off the temptresses are insanely rare and due to the level of difficulty in obtaining them and the generally poor stats of the other completed armor pieces there isn't a lot of incentive to finish this one. If my experience in getting the nodrop item from the bewilders for the leggings quest is any guide the drop is likely a 1% or less chance. I have killed probably closeto that number of the temptresses and am yet to see one.

Can only use a Large Tailoring Kit - a standing loom and my Deluxe kit did not allow the combine. Was trivial to me at 154 tailoring.

They drop both, hair is uncommon, braids are rare (IMHO). I've been using my pet Jake the Snake to beat on these unfriendlies for a bit now, and I have 4 or 5 hairs, but only one Braid.

I have killed a total of maybe 10 Potameids all pulled from the river and have two pieces of Potameid hair.
