At the end of the previous quest, you were told to find Elam Arruk and give him your Cloak of the Taruun Apprentice. He may be found at +230, -320, -245. Make sure you have a container slot free.

Elam Arruk says 'I see that you have experienced some training from Elder Ternq. He is an amazing scout and very exciting to watch in combat. Years prior to being commissioned to act in this role, I served with the young Scout Ternq. Of course we were both much younger and more agile back in those days. Much like you are now. Ah well, enough with this chatter. Take this bag and stow it somewhere safe. I have a task for you.'

You receive a Black Cloth Bag, a 6-slot size MEDIUM LORE/NO DROP container.

You say, 'What task?'

Elam Arruk says 'You will need to begin familiarizing yourself with the moor and its inhabitants. As a scout, there is one creature that roams the moor that you are going to need to focus on in particular. These creatures are wolf-like in their appearance, but have no need for sight and show absolutely no fear of the tactics that we usually use to scare off animals. They move in packs and attack swiftly. To learn their behavior, you will need to track a few down. Fill that bag with a few of their tongues and bring it back to me. Once you have seen them, I will be able to teach you more.'

Sonic Wolf Tongues drop from any Sonic Wolves in Hollowshade Moor. Fill the bag with tongues and combine to craft a Bag for Elam. Give it to him.

Elam Arruk says 'Very good ______, not only have you had a chance to see the creatures, you have also provided me with lunch. I hope that you learned something from your encounter. Those wolves, or sonic wolves as the Dar Khura call them, have destroyed more than a few scouting expeditions. Over the years, our research into the origins of these beasts has proven fruitful. We have found a means of making a weapon that reacts to their flesh. These items will assist you in making that item.'

Elam Arruk hands you a dagger hilt and a mortar and pestle and says, 'Those items are to be used to not only produce your personal weapons, but to aid any other citizen that may be in need of the component that we, as Taruun, are best suited to produce... the poison. I understand that you are still young and new to poisons, but this will be an easy process for you. You will need only to grind the ingredients up in that mortar and pestle. Then heat the resulting powder in an oven by placing the powder and some water in a poison vial. Be sure not to over cook it.'

Elam Arruk says 'You will need to visit the Library of War History and purchase a book on the construction of this weapon. Read it and construct the weapon. I recall that the scholar that sells the book was also working on a construction kit for the weapons. Please take your finished weapon and your apprentice cloak to Elder Taruun Ternq. I am sure that he will be curious about your progress.'

You receive a Taruun Hilt Piece and an Acrylia Mortar and Pestle. Go to the library and purchase Wolf Bane Lore Volumes I-III from Arms Historian Qua detailing how to construct Sonic Wolf Bane weapons. Crafting these weapons requires the cooperation of all of the five original Vah Shir classes: Bard, Beastlord, Rogue, Shaman, and Warrior (Berserkers were added as a playable class with the Gates of Discord expansion years after the Shadows of Luclin expansion which introduced the Vah Shir as a playable race). Each supplies a component that may only be crafted by Vah Shir of that class, and the components are combined to produce class-specific sonic bane weapons.

Vah Shir rogues contribute Sonic Wolf Bane poison. First combine the following in your Acrylia Mortar and Pestle:
  • Digested Salass Moss (uncommon off any owlbear in Hollowshade Moor)
  • Sonic Wolf Blood (uncommon-rare off any sonic wolf in Hollowshade Moor)
  • Poison Dart Felt (uncommon off Grimling Spiritists in Hollowshade Moor)
  • Tortoise Saliva (uncommon off Moor Tortoises in Hollowshade Moor)
Take the resulting Reddish-Brown Powder and bake it in an oven with a Poison Vial and a Water Flask to craft Sonic Wolf Bane (trivials around 135).

Buy the Weapons Assembly Kit from Arms Historian Qua and combine the Taruun Hilt Piece with the 5 pieces from the various classes: Sonic Wolf Bane from rogues, Toughened Sinew Lashings from beastlords, Reactive Sealant Soak from shaman, Porous Dagger Blade from warriors, and Ceramic Dagger Sleeve from bards. You craft a Sonic Wolf Bane Dagger.

Go back to Elder Taruun Ternq and give him your Cloak of the Taruun Apprentice and Sonic Wolf Bane Dagger. You will receive a new Cloak of the Taruun Journeyman. He then suggests you head out into Hollowshade Moor and hand the cloak to Ahom Guzhin.

Final dialogues needed.

From reading this and seeing how there is practicly no posting, has anyone acutally gotten past this quest? How easy is it to get the other items of the classes short of creating an account of nohting but Vah Shir? As you can tell when I read this I was dismayed at the Vah Shir progressive quest. I will attest to the rarity of the items to make the poison. I had managed to collect a few of them on previous quests.
What is it called?
