This is the outline for armor tasks offered by Tenish. They can be completed with a single group. These tasks result in armor with stats in the neighborhood of 215-240hp/mana/end. After completing one of these tasks, you can request a task in which you add stat bonuses to your armor piece. That outline can be found here.

Find Tenesh in Crescent Reach at location -1400, -1440, -55 (up a ramp west of the "find-able" Librarian Hemfar).

You say, 'Hail, Tenish'

Tenish says 'Vasha, Friend! Excuse me if I seem distracted but I was just studying this text on ancient and powerful [artifacts] that Librarian Hemfar has compiled.'

You say, 'Powerful artifacts?'

Tenish says 'Yes indeed! This entire area is rich with ancient and forgotten magic just waiting to be discovered and harnessed. I believe I have learned how to tap into some of the most powerful traces of magic lingering in this area and use it to imbue ordinary [armor] items with extraordanary properties!'

You say, 'What armor?'

Tenish says 'Oh, armor of all types! Anything from Platemail to Silk Robes, I believe I have discovered the secret to creating some of the most powerful protective items ever seen on Norrath. The only hurdle I face is I haven't been able to locate any of the [components] that this tome hints at.'

You say, 'What components?'

Tenish says 'Here, I have prepared a list. If you would like to help me search for the items on this list I would be happy to share the resulting items with you. I assure you, ______, You won't be sorry if you assist me in locating these items!'

The following tasks are available, depending on your class (the name of the task is the piece of armor you will receive):

Berserkers
Scarred Chain Boots
Scarred Chain Coat
Scarred Chain Coif
Scarred Chain Gauntlets
Scarred Chain Leggings
Scarred Chain Sleeves
Scarred Chain Wristguard

Rangers
Embraced Chain Boots
Embraced Chain Coat
Embraced Chain Coif
Embraced Chain Gauntlets
Embraced Chain Leggings
Embraced Chain Sleeves
Embraced Chain Wristguard

Rogues
Bladed Chain Boots
Bladed Chain Coat
Bladed Chain Coif
Bladed Chain Gauntlets
Bladed Chain Leggings
Bladed Chain Sleeves
Bladed Chain Wristguard

Shamans
Seared Chain Boots
Seared Chain Coat
Seared Chain Coif
Seared Chain Gauntlets
Seared Chain Leggings
Seared Chain Sleeves
Seared Chain Wristguard

You have been assigned the task '_____'.

Tenish believes that he can help you craft new and powerful armors. All you need to do is collect several components and return them to Tenish so he can construct the final item. Tenish believes that you should focus your search far to the North.

From what Tenish can gather there are two types of ancient artifacts that he thinks he can use to construct your new armor items.

Ancient artifacts have become infused with a magical coating that looks strangely like Frost. Search along the path to the Giant city we have heard rumors of for such artifacts.

The ash from a distant volcano has fused itself with other artifacts, lending strange properties to them. Search along the path to this volcano for these artifacts.

The molds you will need can be found in the same areas as the artifacts although they may be slightly harder to locate. The local denizens of these areas have become aware of the unique properties of these molds and the most powerful among them may be hoarding them for their own purposes.

For the Chest Piece:
4x Frosted Chain Link
An Ancient Chestguard Mold

For the Legs Piece:
4x Ash Covered Chain Link
An Ancient Leggings Mold

For the Arms Piece:
3x Frosted Chain Link
An Ancient Armguard Mold

For the Hands Piece:
2x Ash Covered Chain Link
An Ancient Chain Glove Mold

For the Head Piece:
3x Ash Covered Chain Link
An Ancient Chain Skullcap Mold

For the Boots Piece:
2x Frosted Chain Link
An Ancient Chain Boot Mold

For the Wrist Piece:
1x Ash Covered Chain Link
An Ancient Chain Bracer Mold

Frosted Chain Links drop from mobs in Icefall Glacier and The Steppes.
Ash Covered Chain Links drop from mobs in Direwind Cliffs and Sunderock Springs.
The molds drop from various 75+ named.

Give the required items to Tenash in exchange for your armor piece and completion of the task.

Tenish says 'My theory was correct! This is fantastic! Now, friend, I must ask if you are prepared to go [further] with this experiment and see if we cannot, together, create something truly fantastic?'

This is the lead-in to another series of tasks, in which you can enhance you armor with stat bonuses.

I had the same msg as the other posts here about being too young. I contacted emailed a GM and they told me there is in fact a bug with it. He said he sent the issue to development. Not sure if you can get quest at 75 or not. I was 74 when i tried.

The quest can be obtained at lvl 75. Shammy on Povar named Pawzer could not get the task at 74, when I leveled to 75 I could get the task and everything worked fine. Seems something is bugged with the lvl reqs.

Tried getting task from Tenish with my 74 Shammy on Povar Server and Tenish says "I'm sorry, but I have no work for someone as young as you. Return to me when your more experienced." A 72 mage was attempting to get task at same time and also could not get task.

Same message as a level 70 and lower use to get when quest was working.

may be an obvious question but, are you invis? also, he only gives you one at a time, can't get the next one til you finish handing in all the pieces from the last... other than that you just need level 71 to get the tasks.

If I have the components and I turn them in, at level 70 instead of 71, will he still give me the armor? Or will the components be lost?

You can't even get the task if you are under 71. Just tried it with my alt shammy who has all the pieces to make the tier 1 legs.

No, you have to get a quest and hand in the item yourself.. no idea why you would have to MQ this anyways, just loot the pattern on the correct char and collect the (tradable) other components, and you're set
legs?

# Oct 17 2006 at 9:26 AM Rating: Decent
for this task to you have to loot the itemss while you have it or can you loot them before you get it

looting?
# Oct 26 2006 at 8:42 PM Rating: Decent
You can loot the items at anytime and then get the task once you have the items. That's the way I recommend you do it, since you can only get one of the armor tasks at a time.
