You say, 'Hail, Ranger Spirit'

Ranger Spirit says 'Greetings, _____. Are you a true servant of the Pine?'

You say, 'I am a true servant of the pine'

Ranger Spirit says 'Very well, my friend. In order to reach your true potential you must pass many tests. Relinin Skyrunner and Gordon Treecaller are here to perform these tests. Please choose one of these worthy teachers..'

You say, 'I choose Relinin Skyrunner'

Ranger Spirit says 'Relinin Skyrunner, you say. True to Tunare is she. Take this book and read it. When you feel you know it well, return it and Relinin will appear to test you.'

You receive a book called Sisters and Life. It reads:

Day 327, Sisterhood Island.

Again my brother came to me. He asked that I return to the ways of Tunare and again, I refused. I have no desire to
follow a god who carries with her such inequality between the sexes. For generations, the elves have always shown favor to the male elven rangers. They ignored all of the good we had done for the forest of the Faydarks. So we left. We left for very good reason. Here we are able to accomplish very much the same thing, with one exception. All of us are equal under the sun. Each of us knows our own worth and appreciates the freedom we have been given. Know thyself and know thy abilities so says the Mistress of the Island. Live by it.


Give the book back to the Ranger Spirit.

Ranger Spirit says 'Relinin Skyrunner, I summon thee.'

Relinin Skyrunner says 'I, Relinin Skyrunner, bid you good day.'

Ranger Spirit says 'Good luck, my friend.'

You say, 'Hail, Relinin Skyrunner'

Relinin Skyrunner says 'Greetings, _____. I can only assume the reason for my being summoned is that you wish to take the tests. Would you like to be tested in the body, in defense, in the element of earth or would you like to trade?'

You say, 'I would be tested in defense'

Relinin Skyrunner says 'Defense it is. You must prove yourself worthy enough for the spiroc spirits to guard you. Bring back to me a mithril disc, a harpy tongue, and a fine velvet cloak. Good luck to you, _____.'

Hand in the items:
-Mithril Disc
-Harpy Tongue (dropped on Gorglak Island)
-Fine Velvet Cloak (dropped by the Keeper of Souls)


Relinin Skyrunner says 'You should find this cloak useful.'
You gain experience!!

Constantly clicking?

I have this, and put it in an open inventory slot. I held down and dragged the icon to my hotbar, then opened options and went to hotkeys,,, I set the hotbar key, to whenever I hit the --> key, it clicks the cloak,,, so I am effectively running at 91% haste, constantly. Absolutely my favorite Item ! Kinda gotta watch out though, because it is very easy to overburn a mob,,, and am constantly grabbing agro... so, be careful if you do the trick...

45% from my Vamp Hunter Bplate + 50% from cloak + 10% from Moonstone Mind Scept.

105% Haste on command. (Excluding Guardian of the Glade line of spells)

Goes real well with my Greatsword of Mortification/Vish Stick.

I say the best clicky in Everquest for Rangers.

However I still prefer Cragbeast Queen Belt.

My finger does get tired of constantly clicking cloak from inv. lol
not song haste
# Dec 19 2004 at 1:49 AM Rating: Decent
ok this has been posted in a variety of forms - but for the record ---

This spell effect is a SPELL haste - NOT song haste. It acts like song haste in that it only lasts for 18 seconds. BUT it does not 1) go into the song buff box 2) stack with spell haste.

It overwrites Nalot's quickening and Shaman haste. IT Will stack with chanter hastes tho - but don't be misled - it isn't stacking haste on top of chanter haste - it simply doesn't overwrite or block

SO --- still a great item - god looted 4 of them away over the years before I finnaly looted one myself, and it still gives you 50% haste if you don't have a chanter or shaman or BL with you - so its still nifty

I would imagine so, but if you find a ranger who actually has the fine velvet cloak you can guarantee he won't sell you the MQ of it even if you offer 1 million plat. 90% self haste (with epic) is INSANE! Some may laugh, but think about putting a wurmslayer in your primary slot just to check out how fast the wurmy goes and buzzes through the mobs(and throw in that +3 dmg aug from NRo Wayfarer Camp just for kicks).

If I ever get this fine item... I may just die of a heart attack.

P.S.- The rating is from when the item used to have 5 regen charges, if you wish to see this item get it's proper respect, please rate it the excellents it now deserves.

After getting key and getting in, find Ranger Spirit. He is an Efreeti just inside the npc room. Hail him. He will ask if you are a servant of the Pine. /say I am a servant of the Pine. He will then tell you of two "teachers" that are there to test you. /say I choose Relinin Skyrunner. Ranger Spirit hand you a book to read. Hand it back to him. He will depop and Relinin will pop. Hail her, no other dialogue needed, hand in Mithril Disc, Harpie Tongue and Fine Velvet Cloak and you will get Dark Cloak of Sky in return.

Good luck to you :)

Got my cloak today!
1cp key to get in

It is Veeshan's key that costs 1cp. Use it at either pad on 1st island to get down to quest npc's. Buy it from the Key Master. Looks like small green gem. Price is 1cp on it.
clarification
# May 16 2003 at 11:34 AM Rating: Decent
(following captured off Ranger Glade Forum, Sharidann gets the credit for this info)

Harpy Tongue : from harpies of course.

Velvet cloak : RARE drop from the Keeper of Souls, who is the boss of the pegasus/griffon island.

Reward is the dark cloak of the Sky, which gives you 50% right click haste which stacks with item haste.

As for the npc for turn in, well, one of the pads on the first island ports you down to the efreeti and there you speak to them, 2 of them are for ranger quests.

As far as I remember you need to give them 1 cp to activate the dialog. (but unsure if the 1 cp part aint actually to get to the efreeti cave)
Items tradable?

I have the mith disc and the harpy tongue, but my guild had to leave before we were able to get to the Keeper of Souls. Does anyone know if the fine velvet cloak is tradable?

I know A Couple people who do that bind to kick thing...but what id like to know since im almsot done with quest, how is it done...
Worth the Trip
# Nov 20 2001 at 3:18 AM Rating: Good
This cloak is really sweet. I am able to bind it to my kick skill and now I can solo more efficiently with less down time. I actually wear the cloak because despite its lower ac, the stats are pretty nice. Besides, 6ac and 10ac when applied to your overall ac does not noticeably hinder your performance. This item is definately worth the trip or two to Air plane.

Keeper of souls?
# Oct 24 2001 at 8:51 PM Rating: Decent
Just wondering if the keeper is actually on the plane like the other 2 mobs or if he is somewhere else? Looking at Illias bestiary (whatever) i did not see it. If anyone know plz post, thanks.
#REDACTED, Posted: Oct 03 2001 at 1:18 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) kids kids, the below poster is correct. this item's haste stacks with the permanent epic haste. a ranger can get almost maxed haste with NO BUFFS if he/she has this cloak.
#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 28 2002 at 12:56 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Not true. The item with the highest percent of haste is the one used.
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 01 2002 at 11:47 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) this isnt item haste.....its a song haste...it stacks.......so he was right.

actually, it is not a song haste, it is a spell haste.. but still stacks with item haste.. Watch the buff bar when yo uuse it.. it is with buffs, not songs....

this rocks!
# Sep 16 2001 at 8:01 PM Rating: Default
think about it rangers! if you got swiftwind and its perm haste, that means these 2 will stack! its clickable! I cant wait to go to the plane of air!
Umm....
# Aug 08 2001 at 5:33 AM Rating: Excellent
Okay....read what the people say before you post please :)

You don't need to equip the item to get its clickable haste.

Rangers can go far far over 1000 AC I'm at 1000 right now and I still have improvements to make yet.

Great item, I'd use it mostly in the inventory slots. Really, really, really hard to get though.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jul 29 2001 at 6:30 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ok ppl big Deal it only has 6ac the max a ranger can have is 1000 and with other nice stuff you should be close to it you should be close with Half way decent stuff for this lvl. It has nice stats and it gives haste over all i think its an ok cloak Not the best But nothing to conplain about...
RE: Quit your bitching
# Mar 31 2002 at 10:19 PM Rating: Good
Are you kidding me? This haste stacks with item haste: Swiftwind 40% haste + Cloak click effect 50% =90% haste

This is not just an ok item, it is VERY COOL

Well it must be a bug then. I'd better log on and report that :)

Two Questions:
# Jul 25 2001 at 5:45 AM Rating: Default
If (some of) the components are NO-DROP...
Can this be multiquested ?


And does anyone have a COMPLETE list which states off which mobs items drop - and if they are no-drop or tradeable ? All i seem to find are incomplete lists, however good. But these lists do not combine into one complete ... and i've been trying to compile on in a nice spreadsheet :p

mithril discs drop from an azarack
harpy tongues drop from a spirited harpy
and the fine velvet cloak drops from the Keeper of Souls
Anyone notice...?
# Jun 03 2001 at 4:22 AM Rating: Default
Finally they've got rid of those horrible limited charge items in the PoA quests?
Oh and from the posts on the item page the haste seems to be 50% for a total of 90% when combined with the epic. The name of the quest is pretty weird now though. You get a haste item from a Test of Defense?
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 02 2001 at 10:35 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Where/off of what do the fine velvet cloak and mithril disk drop? (I am assuming harpy tongues drop off of harpies..)
So where do the items drop?
# Jun 02 2001 at 12:31 AM Rating: Default
What drops the mithril disc and the fine velvet cloak?
Yes it's now Haste
# Apr 16 2001 at 10:39 AM Rating: Default
You now get 40% haste from this. The haste is in song form so you have to keep chain clicking it, just like a monk. You do not have to wear it, it can be activated from the inventory.

The best part is, it stacks with item haste. With this and the Swiftwind, you can put youself at 80% haste. It does not, however, stack with spell haste.
Haste ?
# Apr 14 2001 at 2:43 PM Rating: Default
I was reading over on rangers glade. this thing has been updated. Now has clickable 40% haste, same ac as before. Can anyone confirm? Also what mobs drop the quest peices. Dificulty in quest? Never even wanted to goto sky , but now....hmmm see ya up there.
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 13 2001 at 9:28 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I must concur...Given the levels needed to gain the quest components, dis item stinks up alla Norrath.
