Shakrn Meadowgreen is located (106, -2215) in the centaur encampment in South Karana.

You say, 'Hail, Shakrn Meadowgreen'

Shakrn Meadowgreen says 'Hail! I am Shakrn Meadowgreen, warrior extraordinaire and master armorer of the Meadowgreen family. My brother and I craft [armor] for the bravest warriors in the land - do you think you [qualify]?'

You say, 'I qualify.'

Shakrn Meadowgreen says 'So you are a warrior of renown? [Prove] it to me and I will smith you [armor] befitting your exalted station.'

You say, 'How do I prove it?'

Shakrn Meadowgreen says 'You will prove yourself to me the old fashioned way, by killing things and bringing me back proof of your deed. Bah. What other way is there?'

You say, 'What armor?'

Shakrn Meadowgreen says 'I smith [helms], [gauntlets], [boots] and [vambraces]. My brother Ulan smiths bracers, greaves, pauldrons and breastplates.'

You say, 'What vambraces?'

Shakrn Meadowgreen says 'Come, warrior, and speak to me of your strength. Bring me the eye of a griffon that I might eat it raw in the fashion of my ancestors. Do this for me - then gift me with two [fire emeralds], and for you I will make a crafted vambrace.'

Fire emeralds may be purchased from several merchants. A Griffon Eye drops from griffons which are found wandering North Karana and East Karana.

Upon Handing in two fire emeralds and a Griffon Eye:


Shakrn Meadowgreen says 'Wait, ______, are you not forgetting something?'
Shakrn Meadowgreen says 'Wait, ______, are you not forgetting something?'
Shakrn Meadowgreen says 'A griffon eye - I shall eat well tonight, and toast you in the manner of my ancestors. Take these crafted vambraces - they will serve you well.'

Had Grim pop near NK druid rings as I was porting a friend into the zone, so root-rotted him to death. :) Dropped Griffon Eye and Rune of Ivy. Since I've got 1 Fire Emerald already in the bank, might as well shell out for another and get these. Looking back, I still like em. Really, the only part of the set I didn't like were the bracers and helm which had the int bonuses...

Well you dont even need to ask "what vambraces" if you have the stuff necessary. Just make sure its the right brother and give him the two fire emeralds.. unstacked and the griffon eye. Poof!
crafted vambraces.
What phrase?

I have been to the centaur, and gotten as far as, "what armor?" He says I make....(vambracers).... What do I say then? Maybe I am braindead. I tried What vambracers? --- I want crafted vambracers. ---and others, I am stumped.
RE: What phrase?
# Apr 22 2002 at 8:51 AM Rating: Default
Were you spelling it correctly in game? It's vambraces, not vambracers.

I am a druid of Tunare I have hunted these Griffons from lvl 30 and almost to lvl 32 now. Here is how you do it instead of fearing it (Very stupid means sure death), ensnare it then dot it with creeping crud, and Immolate. Both dots should take it down a quater of its life don't bother nuking it, that was mana that you could use for dots.

I just completed this quest and need to point out a few things! IT IS A GRIFFON EYE! Also I seen a post on another site that said Grimfeather always dropped, a group I was with last night killed him 3 times and he DID NOT drop the eye. We also killed 3 griffons and got an eye on last one!

You can multiquest any quest that does not involve a container.

Have the one who is not doing the quest turn in the first item. It will stay on the NPC, then log on to the one who wishes to recieve the quest and hand in the rest of the quest pieces.

Besides that, the reward is not no-drop. Just do it on the other character, and do a trade with a friend.

I think he's referring to the level and lack of equiupment on his lvl 14 warrior being the problem. However, this is such an easy thing to deal with, if you know a druid. Get a port to NK, the ring is very close to the SK zone. Get a sow and camo, and have the druid follow you to the centaur village. Turn the stuff in, and druid ports you home. Piece of cake.

If you don't know one, offer to pay one. They may do all that for 30-40pp, if they are not too busy, and are willing to be nice to a low lvl.

Also, I should note, a wizard could do it as well, except that he cannot sow. However, if he's high lvl, he could easily take care of anything that would bother you in SK.

I don't think I saw this before, but can anyone do the quest (class)? I would like to help low level friend out with a gift and this would be perfect for the stuggling Alchemist I am. hehehehe

Let's finish this game someday :P
RE: Any Class?
# Sep 18 2001 at 12:31 PM Rating: Default
yes any class may do this quest imo though if you got the money buy the armor (i bought the boots and gloves for 400pp last night and have 150pp left for spells)

the griffon eye shouldn't drop off of the Griffawns. Can someone clear this up please?

RE: As far as I know...
# Nov 14 2001 at 8:18 PM Rating: Decent
Definately do not drop off griffawns. As far as I know they only drop off griffons which are level 35-37. Hit very hard (up to 90+) so best team up with a druid, ranger or other class that can fear them.

I might be mistaken, but I think the name is stated above? "Who: Shakrn Meadowgreen" ...

Location - try the centaur city in South Karana. I haven't got the exact /loc, but look it up on www.eqatlas.com.

I spent like 500 years in NK hunting for this "Eye of Griffon" And I got MANY "Griffon Eyes" but not until I was totally exhausted and ready to give up did I find out that the "Griffon Eye" was what I was looking for! So I quickly killed a griffon, looted the eye, and took myself over to SK with the emralds and yep, sure enough I wasted 500 years of my life! I got my purdy crafted arms with the "Griffon Eye"

Ok, I aint an idiot, but some people are saying you need "eye of griffon" So youre sure you just need "griffon eye"

I have done this quest many times and killed many griffons. There is no item called "Eye of a Griffon", that is simply what Shakrn calls it when you ask him about the vambraces. The actual item name that drops on griffons is "Griffon Eye" and it is LORE and NODROP. It looks just like a fire beetle eye, but it's blue instead of red.

How much do you think a full set of crafted armor would cost?
RE: Price????
# Jul 23 2001 at 9:41 PM Rating: Default
Definetally more than 1K. It's easier to get the Stein of Moggok on a PK server than to get all this crafted gear. The only really easy way to get this stuff is if you have the cash and the lvl to obtain it. Otherwise, skip this crap, wait 'till you can get plane gear, and just wear FS or something that you like.
Eye of a griffon
# May 31 2001 at 2:52 PM Rating: Default
From my past experience tryong to do this quest. I do believe there are 2 eye's that drop from the griffon's. One is "a griffon eye" which is for another quest. (which seems to drop pretty frequently) The other is the one you need: "Eye of a Griffon" (I've killed a crap load of griffons and have yet to see this drop.)

Correct me if I am wrong please....

I hope you are. I'm a lvl 23 Warrior and was lucky (or unlucky) enough to get to loot an "Griffon Eye". It is No Drop and Lore, but I am gathering that this is not the eye that I need for the quest. If I'm wrong, please say so.
