    You say, 'Your brother sent me'

    Chanda Miller says 'Oh... Hello. My name is Chanda. Elina is your name? That's a nice name. My [brother] sent you to talk to me? You must want some bear... um... [clothes].'

    You say, 'Clothes?'

    Chanda Miller says 'I um... know how to make... Um... [cloaks] and [boots]. Oh yes! And belts! I love to make bear skin belts! Um... I really like [belts]. My [brother] says I have to start charging gold for my stuff, though...'

    You say, 'Belts?'

    Chanda Miller says 'Oh, yes, I like making belts! They are easy! All I need is a bear skin and 5 gold pieces. The bear skin doesn't have to be that great but don't bring me a ruined one. The gold was my brother's idea... sorry.'

    Before you even talk to Chandra, this happens.

    ~~

    You say, 'Hail, Chanda Miller'

    Chanda Miller says, 'Um... I do not know you. Please, um... Leave me be.'

    I don't know if faction matters or race (I was Indifferent to her), but I was told that you must say the below in order to get Chandra to start to talk to you.

    You say, 'Your brother sent me'

    ~~

    The rest of the text information is correct on Agnarr as of 6/5/17.

    I got the belt but when I turned in the 15gp and medium quality bear hide I got two messages saying something like "ummm I need the other thing too". But I turned in both and I'm pretty certain they were the correct amounts and item. Bah, I wanted those boots now I have to find another MQ bear. It was the only one I had.

    Chanda and Baobob are usually hanging out at the campfire at the Surefall Glade zone although both of them will eventually wander into the zone usually towards the undead ruins or blackburrow.

    If evil players are camping the millers you can usually get armor by POLITLY asking them in tell to leave one alive until you do your quest then it's best to send them a tell when you are done.

    Boots and Belts can be quested by anyone who the millers don't attack but cloaks you need high indifferent possibly amiable faction to quest, this goes for bear or wolf cloaks.

    There are ways to get karana residents faction but one of the simplest is to do the armor quests a few times, the belts come out about even if you vendor fodder them they sell for a tad more than the 5gp to quest them. Another is to vendor comb Qeynos for moonstones, many people do gnoll fangs then sell moonstones not knowing the next quest step; Buying moonstones about breaks even if you sell bb stout back to vendors. With shared bank the ranger mule is also a good idea maybe transfer some loot you got hunting to your mule to sell to get cash. The third route is to get a karana worshiping character OR an enchanter or bard above about level 15 to do the quest for you.

    The cloaks do take a HQ bear pelt but then again its not really 30p or whatever UNTIL you sell it so if you are a druid or int caster it may be worth it, if not there is always the wolf cloak since HQ wolf pelts aren't worth much to tailors, you just get 5ac instead of 6.

    The bear boots now have extended enhancement I making all buffs up to level 20 last about 15% longer; This is spell level not caster level so if you have these say at level 30 they will still work for your low level spells like invis or sow or whatever.

    Boots do not make you run faster, the exception are Journeyman Boots (quest involving ancient cyclops) or Traveller's Boots (5.2k off vendor in sol a) and some boots that are an interim reward for the shaman epic all of which by themselves don't make you run faster but do have effects you can activate which do.

    Get your pelts in any zone, don't get them in Qeynos hills, there are level 40 or so NPCs who attack if you are fighting animals. For low levels there is Everfrost and for people above level 10 or so who want experience there are also wolves and bears in both commons, all karana zones, misty thicket, nek forest, and many other zones.

    Chanda (the female) makes bear armor, Baobob (the male) makes wolf armor. The bear armor is preferred as bearhide armor has 1 more AC than the same type of wolfhide armor ie wolfhide boots AC4 bearhide boots AC5. To see if you have enough faction try asking either of them "what belt" "what boots" or "what cloak."

    Pelt=Skin Vi/Sony kind of mix and matched the names skin and pelt see http://www.eqtraders.com/secrets/recipes_tailoring_armor.htm for a better explanation. You can hand them any amount of coin as long as it equals the amount needed so 1PP,5GP = 150SP = 1500CP = 15GP or whatever.

    As for druids and rangers killing animals, remember that people like native americans killed animals when they needed to even though they claimed to be friends with animals, the key to properly roleplaying it is to use all of the animal so take the lower quality pelts and tailor them into patchwork and take the meat and make bear sandwiches or something rather than letting everything but the pelts you want rot. (Patchwork vendor sells for a profit as do bear/wolf sandwiches and both are good ways to start trade skills.)

    Fantastic post KollinsK, its great to see that kind of post here.

    On the progression server and trying to do the boot quest, I'm not getting it to work with the "skin", as soon as I get a pelt I will try. Is there any information regarding this switch and wether both still (do) work?

    As soon as I get a pelt instead of a skin I will try again.

    thanks.

    I just used a medium quality bear skin with Chanda to get the boots and it worked for me. Did you maybe forget the coin?

    Good stuff if you can't wear metal. Most say that sacrificing a HQ skin for the cape isn't worth it since you can sell to tailors making backpacks and buy better, but that can take time and if you need something to fill your back slot fast, this isn't bad. I like to combine the bear hide pieces with reinforced and Split Paw hide gear. Nice AC for a low level or low strength character without a lot of hunting around since everything I listed above is found practically everywhere for cheap.

    I have an enchanter. its REALLY lame I cant fasion patchwork, but I CAN get this. as far as untwinked (and the focus on the boots) this is all RATHER nice. I dont know what that woman does to bear hide, but I like it.

    just be careful of HOLLY WINDSTALKER or whatever. I think 'only' Verant would put a lvl 50ish zone right next to a noobie zone (LFEY and GFEY).

    They Encourage young druids to kill wolves and bears (for this armor AND the rabid animal quest) THEN to have a higher lvl Holly slaughter you. Its cute. She slaughters you in the name of Tunare or something, for hurting the bears and wolves.

    Hehe, first off HQ bear pelts haven't sold for 30pp since before Luclin, now that hq hopperhides can be used in the backpack recipe, which was the main reason people were willing to pay 30pp for hq bear pelts. HQ bear pelts are still rare, but most tailors just use them for backpacks; and hq hopperhides have a lot higher drop rate and work just as well. You probably couldn't get more than 10pp for it now...

    That 10pp's enough to get you a banded cape made, and probably to buy a bronze splinted cloak. However, if you're a class that can't wear bronze or banded, this 6ac item isn't too bad for the realtive ease of the quest, if you're lucky enough to get a hq bear pelt.

    My enchanter got the cape by scanning the merchants, found a hq bear pelt for sale from an NPC merchant for 2gp. So 23gp for a 6ac caster wearable cloak wasn't too bad.

    faster?!
    # Feb 20 2002 at 11:47 PM Rating: Default
    Here's what I know about boots, you who are asking about quicker speeds, boots don't do it, SOW is the only way to do it, or if you're amazing enough to play a bard you get Selo's BUT there is 1 exception, Jboots. They are the result of a long higher level quest, so unless my dear lvl 7 has some uber friends, these are not attainable, sorry :-( My idea, make friends with druids, they rock!

    Im a lvl 8 rng and could really do with a pair of boots :). Will doing this quest have any serious effect on my faction with rangers of SG? And can i avoid any neg faction change by just killing them somewhere else?
    Everfrost Bears
    # Feb 15 2002 at 9:43 PM Rating: Decent
    If your looking for the pelts, just got to Everfrost Peaks! 8 bears at a time i can fight, because theres so much! So if your trying to find bears in Qeynos, just go to Black Burrow and then to Everfrost Peaks. Good luck to you all and i hope my advice helps you!

    On this server you cant make mules and twinks (without another account) so the bearskins arent as valuable and bearskin Items are actually usefull. Nobody is going to pay 15-20 plat and especially not 30pp for a dumb bearskin. I wasnt handed all the snakeskin jerkins and velium maces I could use as on other servers, which I find quite refreshing. If you want to do these kinds of quest I would suggest going to the Firiona Vie server make your one character your allowed and have fun.
    Running faster?
    # Feb 05 2002 at 7:05 PM Rating: Decent
    I sure could use some advise from you seasoned veterans on how I can make my character run faster without the random gift of SoW. Will these boots speed him up a bit? My character "Tiernaan" on E'ci server is a half elf ranger lvl 7. He runs so darn slow even with just leather armour. Perhaps there are other items that will speed him up just a bit? Not looking for SoW speed (would be nice though if possible), just anything that will tune him up to a more realistic speed. I will go nuts if I have to wait till lvl (what.. 34?) to get SoW. Any advise would be appreciated. :-)

    Hard to do sometimes
    # Dec 13 2001 at 4:32 AM Rating: Default
    I had trouble with this at first. The Millers are frequently camped and sometimes the campers won't let you make the trade before they attack, fearing that you are trying to steal the spawn. Also, the fact that they get kiled a lot means you will spend some time waiting for them to respawn. Nearest best place to hunt for bears is W Karana. The bears there are higher level so you get more xp for killing them and you don't have to worry about Holly Windstalker kicking your butt. Faction needed for getting the higher items is Karana Residents. I actually built up my faction by doing the gnoll fang quest in Qeynos. When you give the moonstones to the bartender in back of Fish's one of the factions that goes up is Karana Residents. Chanda is very uneasy around strangers but if you tell her' Baobob sent me ' she calms down a little and let's you buy from her. I got the bear cape recently just to see what it was like (also out of spite because nobody wanted to pay me a fair price for my HQ bear skin. 6 hours of auctioning for 30 and highest offer was 12. Get real, people!). Get the bear belt and the bear boots from Chanda and the wolf cloak from Baobob if you must, especially if you are a cloth/leather class. They can make a big difference. Sell your HQ Bear skins, though because you can buy better cloaks and have money leftover. Anybody want to buy a bear cape for 32PP and 1GP?? ;)

    Location of Chandra
    # Nov 06 2001 at 5:28 AM Rating: Decent
    None of the previous messages gave a location, the one that came close I think he was talking bears or something..Where exactly is she located? and at lvl 5 am I likely to live thru the experience? hehe...

    Well, she and her brother wander quite a bit in Qeynos Hills, but you have a good chance of catching either her or her brother (or sometimes both) by the campfire next to the Surefall Glade zone. If her brother is the only one there (the one who gives out wolf-hide armor) just wait around a while and eventually she'll show up.

    As for living through the experience, well, there are a few things dangerous to you at 5 in this zone, but if you stick to the path (which is patrolled well by wandering guards) you should be relatively safe. This is a newbie zone, after all. Things dangerous at 5 tend to be further away from the path.

    I conned dubious to her and successfully did the belt and boots part of the quest. Then I gave her the HQ bear pelt (still dubious I was) and the 21 gp - and she told me I had to do more for the residents of the Karanas or for her family - and gave me nothing in return. :(

    Yep. Dubious is good enough for the belt and the boots, but I think you have to be at least indifferent to get the cloak, sorry.
    Excellent quest
    # Oct 18 2001 at 4:26 AM Rating: Decent
    This is an excellent quest for the lvl you need to be to obtain the bear pelts. I just ran through the quest and came out with better items than I had previously, so if you can do this at lvl 8, go for it.
