This quest begins with Vilissia in the Temple of Solusek Ro.

You say, 'Hail, Vilissia'

Vilissia says 'I am Vilissia, chosen of Solusek Ro. I am a practitioner in the wizardly arts, and keeper of lore for the [runescale cloak], [Tishan's kilt] and the [acumen mask].'

You say, 'What runescale cloak?'

Vilissia says 'The Runescale cloak is a wonderful item of defense for any wizard. Are you [interested] in the [cloak]?'

You say, 'I am interested in the cloak.'

Vilissia says 'I can assemble for you a runescale cloak, but I will need you to bring me the necessary components. I will need a lizardscale cloak from the temple of Cazic-Thule and the three Runes of Scale. All three can be found on crocodiles = saltwater crocodiles in the caverns of Guk, deepwater crocodiles in the Oasis of Marr and firescale crocodiles in the mountains of Lavastorm. Bring me these items, and I will make you a runescale cloak.'

Vilissia needs a Lizardscale Cloak from the Tae Ew Templar of the Feerrott and three Runes of Scale (from saltwater crocodiles in Upper Guk, Deepwater Crocodiles in South Ro, and Firescale crodociles in the Lavastorm Mountains).

After handing in the items:

Vilissia says 'Solusek Ro does not believe in half measures.'
Vilissia says 'Solusek Ro does not believe in half measures.'
Vilissia says 'Solusek Ro does not believe in half measures.'
Vilissia says 'You impress me, adventurer! I had not expected you to return with all of the runes. Very well, I shall keep my half of the bargain. Here is your runescale cloak.'
Your faction standing with Temple Of Sol Ro got better.
Your faction standing with Shadowed Men got worse.
You gain experience!

If you have PoP, I suggest going to the Plane of Knowledge and checking the vendors there as well. People sell all sorts of things there that they can't use and I managed to find a Lizardscale Cloak there for just over 6pp.
It also helps to do the Willimina's Needles quest there to get the book that raises faction with the inhabitants of the PoK.

Since THE big patch the lizardscale cloak is very very hard to get in cazic since it s now a lvl 50 + zone and by the way there is only I mob who drop it once eveery 10 times or so and he spaw every 20 min so be patient. I completed the quest and I am still using the cloak at lvl 40
RE: update
# Jun 25 2002 at 6:46 AM Rating: Default
The mob it drops off of A Tae Ew Templar now spawns in Feerrott just outside of the zone to Cazic-Thule. So don't worry about heading into the new Revamped CT :)
Give her all at ones or one at a time?

Hi, I did this quest some time ago on Tallon with my wiz there but didnt get the item. That week, due to patching, some sol questes didnt work and this might have been one of them. Now I am about to do the quest with my alter wiz on other server and just want to be sure of one thing: Do I give her all 4 items at ones or one at a time? After CT got opgraded the cloak is not that easy to get any more so I just want to be sure.

For those of you ho don't know, this ques has changed slightly. Yes, you still have to ge the Rune of Scale from the Oasis crocs, which is a VERY common drop, there is only ONE firescale croc in Lavastorm, and its along the back wall. And then the saltwater crocs in Guk. However, no longer does the cloak drop in CT. It now drops off of the Tae Ew Templar in Feerrott, and he is a rare spawn now. when facing the zone, he spawn in the tower to your right,the top left is the PH. Not sre exactly how to make him spawn, just keep clearning everything out and he will. He not only drops the cloak, but the rogue ravenscale legs. all no drop. And Vilessia is on the balcony still in ToSR. This is a chainable quest, if someone get an item for you, hve them bring it with yours to Vilessia, as long as you hand in the LAST item, the cloak goes to you. But you must give the last trade to her or you lose it.

The Lizardscale Cloak and the Ravenscale Armor are tradable. You can probably pick up the Lizardscale Cloak for 100-200pp (maybe less). All the Runes, however, are NO DROP.

Not true, I got all 3 from the saltwater crocs in Guk while camping the Ancient Croc. Without even identifying them you can tell that you have all 3 if the game will let you get 3 of them since they are LORE.

If you are a light race, do not do this quest. Instead do the mystic cloak quest. It is ac8 int5 svmagic+5 10 charges of steelskin. The Mystic Cloak quest is a lot easier, imho, and the rewards are greater. Especially don't do it if you plan on buying the lizardscale cloak.

I just wanna know how this quest is acutally finished, do I have to hail Vilissa and talk to her? Do I have to get faction up first? How does the actual turn in of this work? I ask because I hesitate to just give items that forced me to walk all over the continent to an NPC.

hard quest
# Oct 03 2001 at 2:34 PM Rating: Default
this quest is pretty hard for 2 reasons getting the cloak and getting the rune from caverns of guk.Guk crocs are the hardest theres no where to run if your root breaks or if you snare don't work.Also it's hard to get to cazic thule because if you port over there you will die in some maze my friend told me not risking it.Buy the lizard scale cloak 200pp most likely and svaes you death.Just wait until the rune drops when people are killing the crocs for the armor they don't want the rune.

I did this quest, start to finish, in 2 hours and 17 minutes. This was with my 24th Wizard!! Of course i would be lieing if i said I had no help. With the help of a 35th Druid to lead me to the gator area in Upper Guk (I did kill the gators) and a 44th Shaman healing me while I nuked the Fire gator in Lavastorm. I had the Lizardscale cloak on me (from an earlier trade) and BADA BING!! I finished the quest!!! I sold the Kunzard Cloak that I was wearing for 300pp to boot!!! All together, I enjoyed the quest (while it lasted) and the item is not that bad. Yes i know that the Kunzar Cloak is a good lower level cloak, but I like the idea of having a No Drop Quest item that I worked for. Enjoy all!!!

This is a nice cloak
# May 22 2001 at 1:54 AM Rating: Default
There are better cloaks I'm sure but there are a lot better chest items than raw silk robe such as fungi tunic.... :p Point is we are WIZARDS, only cost is 200pp for the lizardscale and maybe porting someone to get a guide to saltwater crocs or more likely someone camping the ancient crocs that will let you have the rune that drops for free. The other 2 runes are a breeze to get, I personally got the firescale's rune first time and I found him by accident. Heck I even messed up and cast a fire nuke on him the first time and still whacked'em. This is a very very good ITEM for only 200pp and a little labor. I say get the runes, buy the cloak, and do the quest then you can forget about your back slot for a while and concentrate on some intelligence jewelry or other things that are a little easier to get than a +int cloak. And even though it's already mentioned the last rune is on the deepwater crocs in oasis but I cannot imagine a scenerio in which a newbie wizard would not be going on the freeport areas until level 20 when we get our freedom. :p Good luck on the quest all....

where can i kill something to get the lizardscale cloak ? the rune in oasis is no drop , so I need to get the rune in oasis, lava, and guk?

Hmmm...Rune of Scale (Oasis) drops off of Deepwaters.
Rune of Scale (Guk) drops off of Saltwaters, found only in the Ancient Croc Room, so I have heard,
Rune of Scale (LS) drops off of Firescale Croc, haven't done that part yet. Good luck-the Lizardscale Cloak is easy, too-was given one a little while ago, before I knew about the quest-glad I couldn't sell it )
RE: runes n cloak
# Feb 26 2001 at 6:35 PM Rating: Default
Yes, you need to get all three runes to get the cloak.

Cant get the LC cloak
# Oct 08 2000 at 4:29 AM Rating: Default
I cant seem to find anyone who is selling the lizard scale cloak. is there a zone where they are more common than others for buying them?

LSC is dropped by Tae Ew Templar in Cazic Thule
RE: Cant get the LC cloak
# Mar 08 2001 at 6:17 PM Rating: Default
Cazic is the place where they drop.... now unless you're near lev 30 I don't suggest going here.... Also, the Templar (the lizard that drops it... common drop thankfully) is always highly campted as the lizardscale cloak is good in of itself with I think +5 Dex which tanks and such hunt this thing to exctintion for... So it might be hard to get into a group... but once you do and get a lucky roll, it's yours... be warned.. this is hardly the easiest place to survive... but I did it this way.
easy, got it at lvl 16
# Sep 10 2000 at 2:24 PM Rating: Default
actually the saltwater croc is the ph of the ancient croc so it`s always camped and deepwater croc is in oasis wich is the hunting ground for darkies for season 14 to 20. you need help for the firescale croc though, he is around lvl 30 and spawns each 16 minutes. the lizzardscale cloak sells for 200 pp. the runescale cloak is fairly easy to get if your a darky but i would recommend that you have the invisible spell first.

I have only seen the Firescales spawn in that on place, and only one spawns at a time. About a 20 minute spawnrate too, and I had to kill 4 to get the rune. Oh and they hit a lot harder than they con, so be smart and take a friendly enchanter along for mezzing and stunning duties. I like my cloak :)
