    This solo task begins with Merchant Wain, who is located in the Barren Coast near -225, -100 (middle of the zone).

    You say, 'Hail, Merchant Wain'

    Merchant Wain says 'Ah welcome welcome! Have you come to see my fantastic wares? Yes, yes I know, I assure you there is enough for [almost] everyone.'

    You say, 'Almost?'

    Merchant Wain says 'True, true, almost everyone. There are many people who come see me for my specialty wares. Things you cannot obtain from anyone else. I am the only one with the savvy to collect these items you see. The best money of these islands is to be had by selling my [combs] and exotic [wigs and cloth]. These items I am constantly running low on it seems.'

    You say, 'What combs?'

    Merchant Wain says 'Ah the combs, the combs. These are the most beautiful combs you have ever seen I assure you. They are difficult to obtain but the price the ladies are willing to pay makes the trouble worth it. Where do I get them you ask? How about we make a [deal].'

    You say, 'Let's make a deal'

    Merchant Wain says 'I will tell you where I get these combs if you will agree to retrieve several for me so I can replenish my stock. Profit for us both, [yes]?'

    You say, 'Yes'

    Merchant Wain says 'The combs are used by the elusive sirens on the island known as Maiden's Grave. Tis a dangerous place to be sure, but the combs make the risk worth it. Bring me back several of them and I will share the profits with you.'

    You have been assigned the task 'Siren Combs'.

    Merchant Wain is looking for more collectibles to sell, and the shell combs that sirens use are beautifully crafted. Travel to Maiden's Grave and return with the combs.

    (Maiden's Grave is the northwestern island in The Buried Sea.)

    Red haired sirens

    I did the quest this week with my trio and I can confirm that only red haired sirens drop the combs. Red haired sirens can be found scattered amongst the purple haired siren but I did find an area where red haired sirens spawn exclusively.

    Add the following entries to buriedsea_2.txt:

    P -4239,-2618,302,0,0,0,2,Reds_and_combs
    P -4358,-2257,302,0,0,0,2,Reds_and_combs

    In that area around those map points you will find red haired sirens.

    For those who would rather have map locations the co-ordinates are:

    2618, 4239
    2257,4358
    Red Hair

    I found the tip about the red haired sirens to be accurate for me when I did this task.

    I have just been working on the jonas quest and found that there is a bunch or redhaired sirens on the southeast coast of Maiden's, but none of them had any combs. Also found that there are several undead which occasionally drop the body parts u also need. Innerpeace

    Just finished both of these, in relatively short time

    Here is what I found:

    Red-haired sirens (reds) = combs (shells)
    Purple-haired sirens (purples) = locks of hair (locks)

    The island seems vastly overpopulated with purples but there are some clusters of reds that I found (no idea if they change upon respawn)

    Every shell dropped from a red, and every lock dropped from a purple--I hope this helps anyone who has had bad experiences from these two tasks in the past like me

    You say, 'Yes'

    Sorry, Auree, I don't have anything for someone of your abilities.

    Odd. Nevermind. I had the quest by saying "yes" to him already, thinking I was accepting a different quest.

    Something like "yes, that's acceptable" ... fun fun.
