    You say, 'Hail, Mercutius Del Torre'

    Mercutius Del Torre says 'Good day, night, or whatever the time is. I am Mercutius Del Torre, minstrel of the Draconic Loyalist Fellowship. The great crystalline dragon goddess, Veeshan, has blessed my life with the opportunity to live among her children here in the Skyshrine. I have learned more of the dragons history, lore, and heritage than I ever could have dreamed of knowing back in my younger days in Qeynos. If you are privy to the musical arts and a friend of the dragons and kin I have developed a method of crafting [draconic instruments] and would craft some for you given I am provided with the necessary materials.'

    You say, 'What draconic instruments?'

    Mercutius Del Torre says 'I have a collection of instruments that I have crafted during my stay here in the Skyshrine from materials that can be found here on the continent of Velious. I presented my crafted instruments to the dragon scholars and they decorated them with runes in the ancient dragon script that enhances the magnificence of their sounds. I will craft either a [draconic drum], [draconic lute], or [draconic horn] if you bring me the materials in order to do so.'

    You say, 'What draconic lute?'

    Mercutius Del Torre says 'The strings of the draconic lute must be crafted from Siren Hair and the body of the lute must be carved from a Brontotherium Femur treated with a [special shellac]. If you bring me those items I will craft the lute for you and have it inscribed with the dragon script runes.'

    You need Siren Hair from Sirens in Cobalt Scar. The femur drops off brontotheriums in the Western Wastes.

    You say, 'What special shellac?'

    Mercutius Del Torre says 'The shellac used for the instruments must be created by a brewer from a Flask of Water, an [Oily Goo Secretion], and one [Kromrif Spit Vodka]. Once you have the shellac fire the old dragon horn or brontotherium femur in a kiln with the shellac.'

    Get an oily goo secretion from the tar goos mentioned above, and combine it with a water flask and Kromrif Spit Vodka in a brew barrel. Brewing trivial = 102. This special vodka is sold in Thurgadin by Bixx Bartleby (41, -378). Combine the shellac with the brontotherium femur in a kiln to create a Shellacked Brontotherium Femur. Pottery combine is trivial at 15. Hand in this shellacked femur and the siren hair to the NPC.

    Help with Hair

    does anyone have a clarifaction on what Hair you need? I tried turning in the (tradeable) Lock of Siren hair, and he says he has no need for it. My faction is Ally, and he took my Shellacked femur. I can't find anything on called just Siren Hair, which is what he actually asks for. Or is this quest just broken?

    It's a NODROP item that drops off of various sirens in Cobalt Scar, and I believe the ones in Siren's Grotto also (although they are harder to deal with due to adds). Killing all of the CS sirens 4 times give or take will usually get you one.

    This guy conned threateningly to me, so I charmed him for the turn in. I gave him the femur and hair and he ate them saying "I will not speak freely with you until you prove to be loyal to the dragon-kin of Skyshrine." He said that while he was my pet.

    You need ally faction to do the turnin, so charming will not get you high enough, To get this, you need to kill lots of giants in Kael, to raise faction to warmly, and then use your alliance song to get yourself up to ally.
    ND Siren Hair

    The lock of Siren hair that you need is ND it drops in SG as posted but drops from the Seductresses also not just the enticers. The tradeable Siren hair does not work.

    Quick directions to Mercutious: coming in from WL side at first "T" intersection turn left and follow up stairs, next "T" turn right, then right again at the next "T". He is in the first door on the right after that.
    Note: first door on the left is the Warner/Werner*(spelling) quest guy for the Mercenary Brooch faction quest.

    The lute modifier is 2.4, according to Reed. Same as Lyendlin's Lute, which sells for 8-10k. Wish I knew what the modifer was for the Draconic Drum. Hoping to get one and then sell my Selo's Drum.

    Mod on drums is only 2.3...only better than Walrus for the stats (and if you roleplay a Veeshan Bard).

    Better now, with the currentglut of TDoK to get TDoK or someones castoff DoTB---primary one-hand wieldable nature of those two, with the 2.8 or 2.6 perc mod far outweight stat boosts of Draconic, imho.
    got it, love it!

    just receive it tongight, took me about 12hour to camp item+ raise tradeskill. I did not feel like redoing the quest so i ask friend to do final combine. cost me about 400p to raise tradeskill(pottery73,brewing 123), friend help and all the port to CS. now for stats at 55, with combine i could get 42hp/tick with cantana of soothin and niv's. now i get 54, i give this quest 2 thumbs up, unless u got a guild that raid or can raid poh maestro, it is a very good 50's lute

    Magelo implies that the shellacked femur is indeed tradeable:

    K hope this helps fellow bards. I did this quest and the Lute quest. I was amiable with CoV when I was able to do the turn in. The femur and hide have began appearing more and more in Bazaar so that part isnt difficult. As for the secretions I got 2 in a 2 hour period in WL. I was there with a 51 druid and a 52 wizard. The druid snare pulled the goos. The faerie dragons were indiff to us. We just root dot'd/nuked the main goo and did the same with the 2 the came up. real easy. As far as the no drop siren hair. I just put a group of guildies together which ended up being over kill since all were 53-57 except myself at 49. It took about 1 hour to get a single hair.
    As far as the trade skills required to do the combines this is wht I had at the time. 120 brewing, 50 pottery and 1 yes 1 tailoring. The bewing part for shelac and tannin were both trivial to me at 120. And not to fear if you have a char that has higher brewing that can get the secretion they can do the combine since the cured hide is droppable. Sorry cant remember if is the same with the lute quest. Hope this helps all of you.

    I am amiable with CoV and NPC gives me quest. am about to do combines and then turn in. My bard is lvl 49. I bought the bronto hides and femurs in bazaar. I also bought lochs of siren hairs.(am hoping are correct hairs). since npc gives me the quest can only assume can do turn ins. I just hope have the skills for combines. I went to WL with a 51druid and 52 mage and myself. we root dotd/nuked the main and the I charmed one of the 2 minor ones while doing same as with large one. was REAL easy. got 2 of the oily substances in first 25 minutes then the VI rule kicked in and no other drops in 1.5 hours. hope this helps.
