Verrell Cogswin can be found in the (now revamped) Northern Desert of Ro at location 6080, -2478.

You say, 'Hail, Verrell Cogswin'

Verrell Cogswin says 'Sorry, but I am a very tired gnome. I am returning from a trip to Halas but this desert heat has worn me out and for some reason my gate spell keep failing. If only I had some water then I could make it to the wizard portal and wait for my brother Pellillo to pick me up.'

Give Verrell Cogswin a Flask of Water.

Verrell throws back his head and empties the flask in one gulp. . . 'Thank Brell your kindness will not go unnoticed. I am eager to get back home I have been in the cold environment of Halas for so long, I thought I was going to turn into a snowgnome. I am just glad we finally figured out the [recipe] for that concoction.'

You say, 'What recipe?'

Verrell Cogswin says 'My old shaman friend Shamus Felligan has been working on some way to change the color of items. He was very close to completing it but for some reason everytime he applied the mixture to something it would change the color temporarily. So he asked me to come down and help him. After a few months we realized what the problem was and we're now capable of changing things from red to green and from green to gray. I kept a sample for myself so I could turn my friend's red drake green as a surprise, but I would like to test it on a [red scale] first.'

You say, 'What red scale?'

Verrell Cogswin says 'Yes the red scales of a dragon would be perfect for a test now that I think about it. Do you know anyone with a red scale that would be willing to let me use it in the pursuit of magical studies?'

Give him a Red Dragon Scale (dropped off Lord Nagafen in Nagafen's Lair, Talendor & Zordakalicus Ragefire in Skyfire, and Echo of Nortlav in The Ruins of Old Paineel).

Verrell pulls a vial out of his pocket and places the red scale on the ground before pouring some of the vials contents on the scale. The scale begins to bubble and fizz as the liquid covers it entirely. Verrell looks at you and smiles before looking back at the scale. gasping and snatching the scale up from the floor.

Verrell says, 'Hmmm . . well I have some [good news] and a lot of [bad news] which do you want to hear first?

You say, 'What good news?'

Verrell Cogswin says 'Well the good news is the scale changed color but. . .'

You say, 'What bad news?'

Verrell Cogswin says 'The scale is no longer red it is gray. I confused the color change it is red to gray and gray to green, no need to fret tough I can just apply more and change it to green but there is a [catch].'

You say, 'What catch?'

Verrell Cogswin says 'The scale split into four pieces and the only way I can fix it is by applying a special [adhesive].'

You say, 'What adhesive?'

Verrell Cogswin says 'In order to make this special adhesive you will need to combine some [glue powder] and some [Deep Barley Brew] in this container with this special vial. Return the result to me and I should be able to fix the scale, but please try to hurry I have to meet my brother Pellillo
Cogswin at the wizard platform so he can take me home.'

Receive a four-slot container: Verrell's Box of Potions as well as a Potion Vial.

You say, 'What glue powder?'

Verrell Cogswin says 'Glue powder can be made from a fractured centaur hoof, some fire giant embers, and some jagged permafrost shards. The hoof can be found on centaurs in the Karanas, the fire giant embers you will have to retrieve from the fire giants in the caverns of exile and the shard can be found in the keep of Permafrost on a chilling terror. When you have collected these three things use a mixing bowl to grind them together and make glue powder.'

You say, 'What deep barley brew?'

Verrell Cogswin says 'Deep Barley Brew is easy for someone with a bit of brewing skill. Just buy some deep fungus mold, some barley, and a bottle of distilled spirits, combine them in a brew barrel and viola.'

Barley is bought from most brewing vendors. Deep Fungus Mold and Distilled Spirits can be found on brewing vendors all over Norrath (among them, Bargol Halith in the Plane of Knowledge).

In a Brew Barrel:
Deep Fungus Mold + Barley + Distilled Spirits = Deep Barley Brew (Brewing Trivial 122)

In Verrell's Box of Potions:
Deep Barley Brew + Glue Powder + Potion Vial = Thick Adhesive

Give the Adhesive to Verrell to receive Grey Scale Pieces and Thick Adhesive.

In Verrell's Box of Potions:
Grey Scale Pieces + Thick Adhesive = Grey Colored Scales

Hand Verrell the Grey Colored Scales to receive Green Dragon Scales.

ok you have to do this with a 55+ warrior shroud it would not work with a 50 animal shroud
Can be done shrouded

Tried as a natural rogue but Cogswin kept brushing me off. So I went with a Elemental Warrior shroud and all went according to quest. You should precombine the glue powder first, mixing bowl did the job for me, before shrouding as I couldn't hit the combine buttons when I was. Mixing stuff in the box worked okay shrouded. Did the hand in and now I am the proud owner of useless (to me) Green Dragon Scales!

It probably flags you so you can only do this once. Intended for warriors to complete their epic.

edit : handing him a water flask makes the level up sound but he says same thing and still wont respond to anything else I come up with

Got Barley, Deep Fungus Mold, and the Distilled Spirits and with 99 Skill made the combine.

Also the mixing bowl does work, did that after the above combine.

I confirmed that both of these are buyable from Bargol Halith in Plane of Knowledge. Make sure the "Show only items I can use" checkbox is NOT checked.

I have a 55 warrior that did this task, and tried to repeat it, even past a patch, So it has been at least a week since the first, and can not manage to do it a second time.

What Verrell said for the glue powder combine has been changed to "mortar and pestle" from "mixing bowl". Mixing bowl combine would not work at all for me, nor the mortar and pestle (would hope not, being non-rogue). Had a rogue friend do the combine and it worked for her. The combine after for the thick adhesive did work, though. 79 pali, shrouded warrior.

mixing bowl worked for me as of 1/15/2011 for the three items : fire giant embers, a fractured centaur hoof, and some jagged permafrost shards.
Also when you hand in the thick adhesive, he hands back a Grey Colored Scales not a grey dragon scales

Can be completed by non-Warriors - did this on my 80 Rogue

Make sure you have items in your bank (not shared bank):
Flask of Water
Red Dragon Scale
Glue Powder
Deep Barley Brew

get your warrior shroud - and go back to bank to pick up items

Brewing Trivial
# Jul 01 2007 at 8:42 AM Rating: Decent
I had a skill of 135 when I made the Thick Adhesive, and I got the message that I could no longer raise my skill making this item.

So trivial is lower than 135.

Just FYI, handed him the gray scale, and he gave it back green. No dye step involved...at least not any more.
Final combines/hand-in
# May 03 2007 at 10:28 PM Rating: Decent
Hand in the red scale and ask 'what adhesive' to get the Verell's Box of Potions

Combine the Glue Powder, Deep Barley Brew and Potion Vial inside Verrell's Box of Potions for the Thick Adhesive.

Hand Thick Adhesive to Verrell for the Scale Fragments and Thick Adhesive.

Combine Scale Fragments and Thick Adhesive in the Verell's Box of Potions for the Grey Dragon Scales.

Hand Verrell the Grey Scales and he hands you back the scales and a dye. Combine the dye with the grey scales in the potion box for the green scales.
Mortar and Pestle Fix
# Apr 22 2007 at 3:24 PM Rating: Decent
The Mortar and Pestle Verrell Cogswin tells you to use is now only rogue useable I believe. The combine button remains greyed out. To do your adhesive combine use a Mixing Bowl, found in PoK on Culkin Ironstove neg 110, pos 270. Or run up to East Freeport and find a pottery merchant if the vendors there will sell to you. Hope this helps, best of luck with your epics!!
where is he?

okay so I've camped he "spawn area" for a couple of days now and have yet to see the little guy. Did his spawn change so is it not working?

the past few days, a friend and i have been working on this together. both of us have tried to locate this lil anklebiter to no avail. /loc given in the walkthrough is either not acurate after the Nro revamp or theres a bug with the quest NPC. if anyone has any info which could help me locate the soon to be punted, pls do.

I kept my warror parked by the Velious dock for about 3 or 4 days waiting for him to spawn. Apparently he despawns shortly after somebody complete's the quest (that's speculation). If you're standing on the Velious Dock and look inland you'll see him.
