This solo task begins with Wayfarers Mercenary Bitral (click for map image) in the Lavastorm Mountains, located at the Wayfarers camp at /loc 2240, -25, 70.

Pre-requisites for requesting this task:
- Level 45
- Maximum "apprehensive" faction with Norrath's Keepers

You say, 'Hail, Wayfarers Mercenary Bitral'

Wayfarers Mercenary Bitral says 'Hm, you seem the sort that might benefit from an association with Norrath's Keepers. It can't be all bad being on the side of Firiona Vie. I don't care much myself, they just pay me for my work -- not all of it is noble.'

You have been assigned the task 'Gathering Silk'.

The spiders of the Lavaspinner's Lair create a silk that the Norrath's Keepers seek! I don't know why, and I'm not sure I care, but we must gain favor with that goodly camp, as well as some money . . . for me.



Loot 8 Lavaspinner's Silk 0/8 (Lavaspinner's Lair)

Loot these from various lavaspinners in the non-instanced Lavaspinner's Lair (entered through the Broodlands). These spiders are located throughout the southeastern part of the zone.

The task completes upon the eighth loot:

--You have looted a Lavaspinner's Silk.--

Your good deeds will go far with Norrath's Keepers!

Your faction standing with Norrath's Keepers got better. (+20)
Your faction standing with Firiona Vie got better. (+20)
Your faction standing with Lanys T`Vyl got worse. (-20)
Your faction standing with Dark Reign got worse. (-20)

Method to retake 'gathering silk' systematically

If you gather N characters and plan to make them all take the easy quick quest named 'gathering silk' from Bitral npc and avoid 'Population Control' again and again, then you need this little method (requires N+2 characters, the 2 extra characters are not necessarily from extra accounts, but not from the same account) because a little mechanism exists to avoid (almost systematically) to let two characters take the same quest consecutively (probably to reduce competition in the related zones which are not instances)

For the N-1 first characters just make them hail just once each and take the quest if it appears and pass if not. After several passages you will get the quest for them

For the last Nth character you will probably be stuck with 'Population control' which is the quest you do not want

Have N+1th character hail, until he gets 'Gathering silk' but don't take it
(this one did quest once, but i don t think it matters)

Have N+2nd character hail, until he gets 'Population control' but don't take it
(this one never did quest)

Have Nth character hail, he will surely get 'Gathering silk'

Once again, no need to hail more that once in a row with same character (it doesn't reroll anything, to hail from another character rerolls but not completely randomly, it's more like a toggle)

recently the faction change shows numeric values
this quest gives +20 to good faction and -20 to evil factions

also relogging once Nth character after it has finished quest helps to retake it, just hail alternatively between Nth and N+1th might work after the relog, if not add N+2th which makes quest change even more frequent while hailing alternatively
