Armor Quest broken?
# May 13 2009 at 1:15 PM Rating: Decent
At one time I had the Thundercrest Expedition Quest, but removed it since I had not done anything on it for about one year. I now have my smithing up to 284 and want to get moving again on Cultural Armor. I have visited Yar and completed the first task (simple items from Unrest and Crushbone); and I have both the Eminent and Sublime Impression Book. However I am not able to get the Thundercrest Expedition task again. I tried saying "Kedge Keep" and "Thundercrest Isles" to Yar, but he does nothing. Someone please help or am I just pounding my head on a stone wall???
Do you have to all the quests?

Well i was bored so i thought about doing a lil smith questing. being iam a Brell Serilis Dwarf i know my way around a forge.(295) an 15% skill mod (gauntlets of dark embers)
Went to see Artidan Shiverbrow for the best book he had. (Elaborate)is whats listed here. But i got "Eminent Impressions quest. Kill 20 strong sentinels on Thundercrest Isle and make 5 chest engravings. then kill 10 Flameweave Menders and make 2 bracer engravings.
Iam not able to find any info about this quest or the armor it makes. And Being that iam Anguish geared i dont think ill take endless amout of effort it takes to make this armor when i have no idea what the rewards are.
If any one knows of a link or such i would like very much to see it and learn more, thanks my fellow smiths and keep your forge hot !
OK nevermind Eqtraders corner told me all i needed to know. this is the symbol quest . weeeee i feel like sucha newb =D .

Regarding quest
# Dec 26 2006 at 7:02 PM Rating: Decent
I just started my GM quest and it is different than what you have. Mine is kill 120 mobs in Thundercrest Isles and loot 80 Fractured drake claws. Unless more requirements pop up after I get the drake claws thats it.

That is a broken quest. I did it, and it failed to complete me. After petitioning, I got a response. I went to the taskgiver (Yar Silverbrow) and said broken. I repeated all the responses in brackets, and it took about 10 minutes, cause I had to do exactly as it told me, in the exact steps.

But the quest was fixed.

Note: if you say broken to Yar, be ready to complete this. Do NOT zone, do NOT LD, do NOT quit the game till it is finished. Otherwise, you will lose your progress. PERIOD.

Once fixed, you see the 2nd half of the quest.
No longer have to be in Task

It appears that you no longer have to be in a task to get updates to quest. I was duoing with my 71 cleric and my 63 warrior and was getting updates in the non instanced Thundercrest zone
Did they change this quest or is it bugged?
# Oct 28 2006 at 1:08 AM Rating: Decent
Ok I was almost done with my Dwarf Grandmaster quest "Thundercrest Expedition" when it changed. The following was what it used to be:
Kill 120 Thundercrest Drakes DONE
Loot 80 Fractured Drake Claws DONE
Hand in 4 Fractured Drake Claws to Artisan Yar Shiverbrow DONE
Kill 10 Dirtdigger Goblins DONE
Loot 1 Stone Necklace
Hand in 1 Stone Necklace to Artisan Yar Shiverbrow

Well I had everything done but loot 1 stone necklace and turn it in to Artisan Yar Shiverbrow and for some reason they quest was changed or some bug popped up in the quest. My quest now reads:
Kill 120 Isle Creatures DONE
Kill 10 Dirtdigger Goblins DONE
Speak with Yar Shiverbrow DONE

And thats all there is to the quest now. It won't let me continue or complete this quest now. Any help on how to complete this quest without deleting it and restarting it would be much appreciated. I have read in this forum about how the Stone Necklace was changed to a Stone Bracelet but my quest doesn't have that option. I've tried to talk to Artisan Yar Shiverbrow, but he won't give me any more information on the "Thundercrest Expedition" quest while I still have it. I sent a petition but I was told by the GM that they can not assist me because it would spoil the game and to seek help from other players about this quest.
If you have any information about how to complete this quest it would be very much appreciated. Thank you.

Don't have an answer for you, but have had the same experience. I wouldn't be upset if the task had been changed after sitting for almost a year trying to get the right "Stone Necklace or Stone Bracelet" (I have looted probaby a hundred but never got credit). That being said, I am also sitting with a task that says DONE, don't have the GM book, and haven't figured out any follow-on tasks or information on what to do next either. Will definately be watching this forum to see if someone figures it out.
Stone Necklace
# Feb 18 2006 at 3:53 AM Rating: Decent
Spent 2 days figuring this out but finally got it. The last piece for Dwarven Cultural GM book is "Stone Necklace" You have to get it from Thundercrest and you have to be in an instance when you do or you won't get credit. I got mine after killing about 10 mobs in the mission "House of Autumn Rose" It dropped from a goblin (A Dirtdigger spinebuster) Hope this helps
RE: Stone Necklace
# Feb 25 2006 at 3:32 AM Rating: Decent
Can confirm this. Spent a couple hours doing non instanced thundercrest to no avail. Spent 5 minnutes in the Autumn Rose task and got the drop.

Completion of Journeyman's Armor and Augments
# Jan 07 2006 at 5:31 PM Rating: Decent
Just wanted to say how happy I am to have finally completed the Jouneyman's Armor and Augments. After two weeks of constant work on this armor and the relentless killing of every goblin that moved in LOIO, I am now the proud owner of a fully augmented set of Dwarven Journeyman armor. Yes I know, its not the best armor, but its actually pretty decent armor for someone that doesn't like to twink. Besides it was a challenge and I have perservered. :)

No Tailored culture armor?
# Oct 16 2005 at 6:08 PM Rating: Default
It doesn't make sense that we can make Dwarven Sewing Kits but there's no quest for the patterns and no idea how to make any gear or what class can wear them. I mention this because the new charms(ex:Symbol of Spiritual Unity,etc) seem to require one cultural swatch as well as a cultural brick to make the charms...... I guess that leaves out the dwarves.....none wear cloth/leather cultural....just chain/plate.
RE: No Tailored culture armor?
# Jan 07 2006 at 5:34 PM Rating: Decent
Does the leather padding have anything to do with this?
Text for aug tasks, and, about kedge....
# Aug 23 2005 at 3:46 PM Rating: Decent
to cut to the chase.... all you need to say is..

journeyman: estate of unrest

master: kedge keep

grandmaster: Thundercrest isles

most everything else is filler.

BTW, I have seen level 35 toons killing in kedge. I have a ranger that at level 32 was soloing sword fish there while I waited for phinny to spawn. It was rough, all he had was self buffs, but he did. Level of twinkage? low to moderate. With 2Kpp or less, you could equip a toon sufficient to handle kedge. In a 6 toon group, it would be rough, but, doable. And, if memory serves, all you have to do is look around zone in, for mobs of the correct types to kill for this task. Pull to ZI, and if its too hot, flee. Snare 1, on the way out, and yer set. Will take time, but, it would be awesome Xp. Just remember fish scales, or, if you have someone there who can forage, share the wealth.
# Aug 22 2005 at 2:07 PM Rating: Decent

This Book will makes 20 of each pattern (40 for wrists). The cultural book ingredient will be consumed the 10th time it is used. {You can repeat the quest for another}.

hope that help
Would like to know
# Aug 15 2005 at 7:15 PM Rating: Decent
Okies I am at the point in my grandmaster's task to where I need only the stone necklace to drop and do the turn in.

However what I would like to know is WHERE exactly does it drop?

I have been to thundercrest isles the instanced and Non instanced and haven't seen it drop yet. I have seen that it drops from the gobo's their but I have been killing for about 3 days straight and still have yet to find it anywhere.

Do I have to be in a DoN for it to count?
Or Can I do the non instanced one and if it drops here will it count?

Either way any help would be appreciative as I have seen a lil bit of info referring to both and when I look it up here on alla it's only listed as dropping in stillmooon and that one doesn't update my task at all.
WTF??? YOU mean I am suppose to TANK???

Don't know when it changed, but it is only 20 horror fangs that needs to be looted

Stone Necklace
# Jul 04 2005 at 1:49 PM Rating: Decent
What mobs drop the Stone Necklace and in regular or instance zone? Been hunting it for hours with no luck.
RE: Stone Necklace
# Jul 04 2005 at 11:52 PM Rating: Decent
Got it today. The stone necklace drops in a bunch of zones but only the one that drops in Thundercrest will work and update your mission when you loot. I did the Holy Hour task from the good camp. See the lady barbarian. It dropped from a Dirtdigger Spinebuster. These mission instanced zones have much harder NPC's to kill than the non instanced ones. You need a pretty good group to handle the pulls.

Past zone in go over the bridge..kill the guardians and move up to the ledge above the courtyard (inside wall of the square). Took me about 25 Goblin kills to get the drop. It seems random off any goblin.

Erudin zone in by the zone in portals Valieni Gadriek (Tailoring Supplies) has all the parts for the patterns; book binding, compacted backpack, a quill, large bottle of ink, and all the vellum rolls (Roll of vellum, good quality vellum, high quality vellum, superb vellum)for each level (journeyman, expert, master grandmaster)of DoN tailoring. Loc (-1375,-254,+36)

She dont like dwarves and ya need Erudin faction to get a sale.

to prove your metals you need to say.. " how do i prove my metals" then he will send you on your way
Journeyman's Book task
# May 06 2005 at 7:37 PM Rating: Decent
Is anyone else having a problem with yar giving them the task?, I hail him and he keeps giving me the requirements for the Ancestral Book. and if you say what adornments and the [prove your metal] is in bracks i say prove your metal and he does nothing. I am lost and dont know how to get this going and become grandmaster
RE: Journeyman's Book task
# Jul 04 2005 at 11:56 PM Rating: Decent
Try adding a word to what is in brackets. If it is [prove your metal] then you say "I will prove my metal" but just repeating back [prove your metal] may not work.

Ok now it's obvious that the quest creators have never played this game. I want to see 35th level people in kedge keep killing mermaids and sharks. You can get the quest at 35, it should be appropriate for 35.

Kill 120 Isle Drakes (instanced zone only)
Loot 80 Fractured Drake Claws (also instanced only)
Delive 4 Fractured Drake Claws to Yar Shiverbrow
Kill 10 Dirtdigger Goblins
Loot 1 Stone Necklace
Delive 1 Stone Necklace to Yar Shiverbrow


The 120 kills was easy, the loot 80 fractured claws took a while though. They sometimes drop razor sharp claws or nothing at all. Luckily "The Creator" is a fairly easy task thats quick and usually yields 5 - 10 claws per run.

You can turn in a Darkbone marrow if you have one but you still have to go back to Kill 10 Darkbone Skeletons. If didi turn in a Darkbone marrow once you kill the 10 Darkbone and loot a Darkbone marrow the book is on your cursor that is what happened to me. So get one while there the first time that way you don't need to turn one in and also make sure to buy items needed to make your molds or patterns also any Cultural materials for Production
