Broken Quest?
# Sep 09 2007 at 11:26 AM Rating: Decent
Kjell wont give me the "Beyond the gates" quest for my elaborate book of barbarian culture. He just keeps telling me to collect the carapace, lion tail, gold bandit tooth, and zombie skin. Even though that part is already done. I'm lvl 75 I don't understand what the problem is =/.

Is it possible for a level 57 warrior to solo the Master's Book? I know the sound of a warrior soloing in Maiden's Eye may sound farfetched, but I'm just wondering. Lol

There are no u]coterie vampyres [/u] they are:
The Maiden's Eye - A Coterie Centurion (Levels: 38 - 53) that drop the Vampire Ashes.
Please fix the text above.

While there is no such mobs, the quest text does read Coterie Vampyres so it lies with SOE and not with Allakhazam. However Master section needs a minor adjustment:
Maiden's Eye: Loot 40 Essence of Darkness

Now should be loot 20. I'm also doing the GM quest and the kill/loot count is unchanged.
RE: Vampyre Ashes for Master's Book
# May 18 2006 at 11:37 AM Rating: Decent
it say Coterie Vampyres

the Coterie Vampyres are called Coterie Centurions, but their race is VAMPYRE, hence the reason you should kill vampyres, the named ones count as well.

So no lies there, just users that ain't got no clue what mob they are up against I guess

Is progression from Journeyman up to Grandmaster required?

I have a 70 Shammy and want to do some of the Grandmaster's gear for him.

Am I correct in the fact that all I need to do is get the Ancestral Barbarian Armor and then start on the Grandmaster's quest?
RE: Progression Required?
# Apr 09 2006 at 12:27 PM Rating: Default
Tha Ancestral Barbarian Armor book will make any level of the armor, Journeyman's to Grandmaster's. The additional books are for the Augs for slot 11 only ... you can do them out of order or only the GM level one (Hail Kjell and /say valley? for GM task after you have the Ancestral book)

Mines of Nurga: Green Goblin Skins
# May 30 2005 at 10:08 AM Rating: Decent
I'm having trouble locating these skins for the Expert book. The goblins in FM outside the entrance drop them but none of the goblins in Nurga seem to have any skin. Does this drop from a specific MOB? Thanks for your help.
RE: Mines of Nurga: Green Goblin Skins
# Aug 20 2005 at 9:58 AM Rating: Decent
They are there... when doing the first part of the quest I only looted 2 after killing about 80 Gobbies. After turning in the Death Salt, it took me about 2 hours of killing multiple goblins, but finally dropped.

Upon completing the turn-in of Vampyre Ashes,

Kjell says, 'Well done. As promised, here's your reward. Let me know if you are interested in any more of these [patterns]. The blood feud between the Skenes and the goblins rages on!'

Was in the Stillmoon instanced zone tonight. I looted about 5 pelts during a shared mission over about 2 hours.

The pelts for the grandmaster quest ONLY drop from the Stillmoon instanced missions. They are kinda rare, I'm at 26 of the 80 needed.
Rough patch of goblin skin
# Mar 06 2005 at 4:18 AM Rating: Decent
I've been from one end to the other in Stillmoon, both in normal zone, and instanced. I have seen no pelts drop. I also have done Tirrium Delve and Thundercrest*instanced and normal*, with zero success. Yes Tirrium Delve(gimblox) drops pelts like water, but they do not count on your task collection. Either there is a zone not discovered, i am missing a zone, or the task is bugged. I have looked about everywhere i know.

# Mar 14 2005 at 9:22 AM Rating: Decent
from Human Cultural Armor (DoN), They also do rough patch of goblin skin quest too. They said we should do "Animated Statue Plans" mission (from DoN camp). So goblins might drop goblin skin. Any you can confirm it?
# Mar 03 2005 at 2:06 AM Rating: Decent
Working on the grandmasters book now.
First step, kill 120 mobs, is goblins/drakes in stillmoon.
Second step is collecting 80 "rough patch of goblin skins" I have been trying to find out where these drop. I spend a breif amount of time in Tarrium Delve and didnt get a drop, and the common drop pelts in the missons (gimblax) do not count on your task.
RE: Grandmaster
# Mar 03 2005 at 3:42 PM Rating: Decent
"Rough patch of goblin skin" seems to drop in Stillmoon Temple. not as common as impure blood, sandy blood, or mottled goblin meat, but I'm sure I've deleted my share of these.
Northman Smithy Hammer

Where do I find Northman smithy hammers? I have been to every vendor in Halas and can't find it. Also I can't find the huge blocks of clay to make the molds.

u get it from the merchant right by the northman forge in halas.
RE: Northman Smithy Hammer

The huge blocks of clay, northman smithy hammer, and HQ ore are found on the 'general supplies' vendor that's outside near the forges. (forget the name) The stuff is there, just not visable in her inventory until you scroll down. She also has compacted backpacks.
RE: Northman Smithy Hammer
# Mar 02 2005 at 3:26 PM Rating: Good
Thank you, the info was enough for me to find the merchant. The merchants name is Greta Terrilon loc +281, - 320 near the northman forge.
