You say, 'Hail, Captain Darznel'

Captain Darznel says 'Well met, friend. May I be of assistance?'

Hand him the form given to you from General Avilah after completing the quest for your Garrison Cloak.

Captain Darznel says 'Let's see, yes... yes... It looks like you signed everything in the correct spot. That can only mean that you're not only brave, but you have some wits as well. If you have all of your teeth and can stand on one leg until the count of five, I think we can make use of you.'

Captain Darznel says 'Take this Polished Acrylia Sphere and give it to Scout Husman. He's been leading raiding parties against the grunt camps. Adventures are great, but we need a real soldier to assist him this time. Perhaps we will get better results with your help.'

Captain Darznel says 'After you complete that raid, please go with Scouts Danarin and Derrin. Once you secure those camps, bring me any grimling intelligence reports or documents that you may have found. Place the documents and your Garrison Cloak in this bag and bring them back to me. Complete this task and you may even get a promotion.'

Captain Darznel gives you a 4-slot box and a Polished Acrylia Sphere. Complete all three raids and loot the captured grimling documents dropped by each officer. Place captured grimling documents I, II and III plus your garrison cloak in the box and hit combine. Hand the result to Captain Darznel.

Captain Darznel says 'This documentation is a great start. Judging by the amount of material here, we'll be able to formulate a new battle within the week. it shouldn't take our linguists too long to decipher this scribble.'

Captain Darznel says 'I cannot help but think that your presence and leadership are what made those missions such wonderful successes. I have been authorized to give you a field promotion for your valor and bravery in combat. Your ability to lead was the keystone in the success of those engagements. Welcome to the rank of Garrison Officer, ______.'

He gives you a 2-slot container for the next series of raids and your Officer's Cloak. The old class-specific Officer's Cloaks are no longer given out.

Need all dialogues, /loc of quest mobs, faction hits if any, quest items, any missing quest information.

I completed the Cloak quest for my BST tonight and would like to make a report of the differences I have seen compaired to what is posted in the official information.

I can only presume that the changes I saw tonight were a result of the Grimling Forest revamp ... When ever it was that they did it.

Captain Darznel has been promoted to Veteran Darznel. He sill gives you the 4-slot bag for the three documents + Garrison Cloak but you are no longer given a Polished Acrylia Sphere.

You can start the Grimling Camp Raids just by talking with one of the Scouts in the Fort. The Scout will then lead you to a Grimling Camp and stand at a safe distance until you tell the Scout that you are ready to attack. The Scout will then proceed to let you attack while he returns to the Fort. The camps usually respawn a few times before it is concidered cleared. The Documents I, II and III now drop randomly on any of the Grimling in the camp as well as the Copper Medal of War (BST Epic piece).

Upon returning the combined bag to Veteran Darznel, he gives you the Officer's Cloak of Service. You no longer recieve a 2-slot bag.

This Officer's Cloak of Service seems to be the final cloak since all Vah Shir classes are allowed to use it. Including Berserkers.

Since tailoring mods don't stack just trade up to a Geerlok Sewing Device that gives 5% and then get the cloak.

You could also try to get some Akhevan Shadow Shears but if this cloak is an upgrade I doubt those are within your grasp.

Questions
# Sep 10 2004 at 5:14 PM Rating: Decent
Has anyone found out yet if there is a way to get the Hero cloak still or is it gone forever?

I think it is such a shame that I worked very hard with my BST to get to that point and get a very nice cloak, only to have drops in PoP, GoD and now OoW out-shine this cloak. It just seems that the questers in a game NAMED for questing are getting the short end of the stick, or shall I say, the crappy end of the gear.

I truely believe that those of us who take the time and patients to quest, tradeskill and farm our Everquest characters life away, should be rewarded accordingly. It's very frustrating watching those that raid get all the best gear. Not everyone is in a high end raiding guild and not everyone wants to do high end raiding, or even have the time to raid.

Those of us who work very hard on other aspects of the Everquest game should be rewarded equally. As an example, I think they should make a few more steps to the coldain shawl and ring to bring them in line with high end drops without having to have the help of a high end raiding guild.
Officers Cloak

I did this quest a long time ago. Used to be if you didn't do the Sonic Bane Weapons quest, you could not progress to get the better cloaks. (That quest was where you had to make your part to trade with all other kitty classes). I had gotten my "Khati Sha Officers Cloak", my stats are different then this cloak.

AC 12..STR 8..DEX 3..STA 10..WIS 8..AGI 5..
HP/Mana 50..WT 5.0

I wanted to do the last quest for the final cloak, but never got around to it. To get the Hero Medallion looked like you needed a raid force to keep the scouts alive in 3 differnt camps. The Hero Medallion itself was a very umber item. I don't remember the stats on it, but I always wondered why Sony would make you go through all that trouble to get the medal and then have to combine it. Now I see they nerfed that quest!
Congratz to any out there who were able to completed that Quest!

It's any different now? I would love to know if it is, as I've had stuffs cluttering up my bank for it for about the past eight months.
what about us Berserkers

Today i finished this quest, got my officer's cloak of service, and he does not give you any box, it appears to be the end of the quest. you can do the husman's raids to get the grimling documents (there's a lovely post in that quest about what to do) if the vah shir own the zone, then you have to wait until the zone refreshes (via patch or whatever) i would like to have gotten the hero's cloak (not only for it's stats, but i did start the quest over a year ago, and just couldn't find anyone that has done the Sonic Wolf Bane part, so i did all the parts myself) but it is a nice cloak as a reward. they just need to make it slightly easier to do the journeyman cloak (i had my cloak 2 1/2 hours after finishing my journeyman)
if you feel like doing this on Quell, i can give ya pointers, but due to the rare nature of the drops (took me a week to get enough components to try one combine for each class) i probably won't be able to give you any of the sonic wolf bane items.

Was just reading up on this quest (am only up to journeyman) and just found out, from what i can gather, that it is impossible to get the Hero cloaks anymore. Just had to express my rage at the complete morons at sony for nerfing such a good quest. Can't believe it.

I may sound really stupid for asking this but, if you have all 3 documents fromt he grimlings and are just starting this quest as a 58 BEASTLORD what is the second cloak quest that you do? The only ones I see listed are the ones for shaman and bards =(
RE: confused

I have made this for my BST and played all classes to the point when they get their Sonic Wolf Bane Weapons.
The web-space it not up to date atm (The Hero cloak is still there and I have gathered some more information for each drop so far that is not included at the moment...), but you can read all here:

I completed the garrison cloak long before the GF revamp. Since everything got changed after the patches, I didn't think there was any continuation to this quest and destroyed the report satchel. Is there an easy way to get another one so I can upgrade my cloak without going through the whole quest again?
2 Slot Box & ?? Stuff
# Aug 03 2003 at 10:18 AM Rating: Decent
I do believe the 2 slot container that was aquired before the changes to GF no longer exists. You were supposed to combine your cloak and the Shar Vahl Hero Medal in that 2 slot container to get an ever better cloak. I can no longer find the guy who even gives that box. Also, a lot has changed in grimling as far as quests. I picked up 2 Lore, No Drop items from the grimlings in the caves there. Bloodguard Orders and another letter named similar. Anyone know what quest these items may be for?

Dont know the name of the quest, but the NPC that gives out the quest is in the Grimling Town when the kitty cats are in control of it.
cant combine
# May 28 2003 at 12:38 PM Rating: Decent
ok, i have all 3 Grimling Documents & my Garrison Cloak. i put them in the Report Satchel with my Cloak and hit combine to get the message that "i can not combine these items in this container". wth? Grim Docs II & III were obtained after the patch that changed this zone but, i got Doc I & the Report Satchel months ago. is that why they wont combine?
Quest Has Changed
# May 10 2003 at 9:04 PM Rating: Decent
As of the last patch which changed HM, GF and AC the cloak quests have all changed. The last cloak is the officer one now. Called Officer's Cloak Of Service
LORE ITEM NO DROP
Slot: back
AC: 18
STR:+8 DEX:+5 STA:+6 WIS:+8 AGI:+8 HP:+50 MANA:+50
+3 to all resists
Class: WAR BRD ROG SHM BST
Race: VAH

There was nothing after I did this turn in to suggest that the quest continued as the raids changed also.

From the 5/14/03 patch message:

- Cloak of the Dar Khura Hero - The effect on this item was listed in the database as the wrong effect type. The effect is now permanent.

I would take this to mean the item is still available in game since noone had completed the quest prior to the changes.

I take this as, if you actually were fortunate enough to do the quest and get your Hero Cloak back before it was nerfed, you still have it and they fixed something on the Dar Khura one. The 5/15 message says this:
Quote:
Officer's Cloak - If you have combined your Officer's Cloak in the Security Satchel or you wish to upgrade to the new Officer's Cloak of Service, speak with Scout Derrin in Grimling Forest.
I personally am mad as hell. I wanted my Hero Cloak.

THis is the step that reunits the cloaks from the first one that we received after citizenship. The general gives the application that you take to the captain in Gremling Forest. From there you must do the the same 3 raids for the same 3 documents.

Grem Doc 1 + Doc 2 + Doc 3 + Cloak = (Class) officers Cloak.

its says he will give you a 2-slot box? What do you collect? Anyone know the name of next quest?
RE: continue
# Apr 19 2003 at 3:05 PM Rating: Decent
The next quest is the Captain's quest. Here is the paragraph that sets it up:

Captain Darznel says 'We can celebrate your promotion when we make it back to the rear. Right now, I need you to lead another set of missions into the grunt occupied territory. Speak to Captain Necin and show him the Soldier's chest that you've filled with the medals that you earned from the first set of raids. He will direct you through the next several mission. Once you have completed the missions, combine the Medallion of the Hero of Shar Vahl and your Officer's cloak in this Satchel. Take the Locked Satchel to Sergeant Cursah. He will assist you from that point forward.

OK, it says do this, "Hand him the form given to you from General Avilah after completing the quest for your Garrison Cloak", but howo do I find General Avilah? and start the Garrison Cloak Quest?
RE: Starting this quest
# Dec 11 2002 at 6:27 PM Rating: Decent
General Avilah is in the North Gate sector of Shar Vhal on the second floor of the building to the west. However, the garrison cloak is a continuation of the sonicwolf bane weapon quest. You need to start at the very beginning of each Vah Shir class's quest strings to get to this point.
