This quest begins with Umvera Dekash in South Qeynos. He's in The Herb Jar (around the corner from the bank in South Qeynos). He may also spawn in Crow's Tavern in North Qeynos, but this is not confirmed.

You say, 'Hail, Umvera Dekash'

Umvera Dekash says 'What, _____? Do I look like a merchant to you? Just because all these merchants are in my library, it doesn't mean that I am one. If you are interested in something other than spell scrolls, then, we can talk.'

You say, 'I am interested in something other than spell scrolls'

Umvera Dekash says 'Ah, so you do have half a wit about you! Very well. As you can clearly see, I am the librarian here. I keep track of all of the mystic tomes that enter this divine building. I also take care of all of the purchasing. Have you something to offer?'

You say, 'I have something to offer'

Umvera Dekash says 'Excellent! You have no idea how difficult it is to get good help these days. Do you think you would have the time to gather some information for me?'

You say, 'I have the time to gather information for you'

Umvera Dekash says 'Even better! Well, it has been some time since the Tesch Val gnolls moved in on the Split Paw. That being said, we still know little to nothing of their origins. If you can bring me back the four scrolls that our diviners speak of, I believe I can reward you well.'

Head to South Karana and collect four different Tanned Split Paw Skin scrolls. These are LORE items and look like rolled up scrolls. When you right click you can read the message written on them if you are fluent in gnoll. But even those unversed in gnoll can notice the number on the page. Collect scroll Volume 1, 2, 3, and 4, and return them to Umvera in Qeynos:

Umvera Dekash says 'Did I not ask for FOUR scrolls? What are you? Some kind of idiot?

Umvera Dekash says 'Did I not ask for FOUR scrolls? What are you? Some kind of idiot?

Umvera Dekash says 'Did I not ask for FOUR scrolls? What are you? Some kind of idiot?

Umvera Dekash says 'It's about time. Let's see here. Right.. right.. right. Very good. Right. There you are! I translated the text. Now the scrolls need to be bound. Take these scrolls to Jheron Felkis in Freeport. I believe he is staying in one of the spare rooms in Velith and Bardo's establishment. He will ensure they are bound correctly. Return to me when the binding is complete.'

Receive Tesch Val Compilation from Umvera and then travel to East Freeport.

Jheron Felkis is located in East Freeport in the building "Velith and Bardo's" (third floor; you can CTRL+F Find "Innkeep Rastle" and go upstairs in the building the Innkeep is in). Hand him the compilation.

You say, 'Hail, Jheron Felkis'

Jheron Felkis says 'Ah, greetings, traveler! Settled into one of these rooms, have you? Well, this room is mine, so get out! Hey, wait! You aren't here to deliver a shipment of books to me, are you?'

You say, 'What shipment of books?'

Jheron Felkis says 'Oh, I typically receive monthly shipments of books from Umvera Dekash. I hear he has recently been promoted to senior librarian in Erudin. What a vaulted position! I could only aspire. I'm not going to be binding books forever, you know!

Jheron Felkis says 'So you are from Umvera! What is this? Oh my! Interesting! I'll bind them right away! A little snip here..a little snip there.. All done! That didn't take long, did it? I won't be doing this forever, you know. After the milita burned down my father's home, he could not afford to send me through proper schooling. Ah well, such is life!'

You receive a Pawbook. You can open it up and read it (8 pages of text). Take this back to Umvera in Qeynos.

Umvera Dekash says 'You have returned safely. That is wonderful! Where the heck is my book, child? In my hands, I see. Such a bright little twinkle you are! Well, let me scribble something down on this pad here. There you are. Take this note to Durkis Battlemore in the Butcherblock Mountains. He is a remarkable smith, but more importantly, he owes me for his smithing books.'

Durkis Battlemore is in the Butcherblock Mountains inside one of the guard buildings: location 2072, 400 (on the path leading from the dock, just before Kaladim).

You say, 'Hail, Durkis Battlemore'

Durkis Battlemore says 'What have ye got there, lad? Ack. I thought I would never hear from that crazy old man again. He wants me to give you a pair o' me gauntlets. I suppose I kin do that. Here you are, Southern. Wear them in good health.'

You receive Gem Inlaid Gauntlets.

Go to the infected paw.. kill up to the 1st set of doors.. until you get 4 splitpaw scrolls. If you right click them, they should all say diff. volume #. Vol1,2,3 and 1 that doesn't say any #. They all look like the rolled up scrolls. Then go to S.Qeynos hand in 4 scrolls (all at once) to Umvera Dekash. He gives you back Tesch Val Compilation. Take this book to Jheron Felkis in EFP. He gives you back Pawbook. Go back to s.qeynos and hand that to Umvera Dekash. He gives you back Note To Battlemore. Head to BB and up on a hill by docks, Durkis Battlemore (if you head from docks towards kaladim, when you head south a bit around a hill.. he is up top of that hill). Hand Durkis Battlemore the note. He hands you the gloves.. Easy peasy.
Complete Quest.

First travel to North Qeynos and go to Crow's Tavern, inside is an erudite named Umvera Dekash.
Here is your conversation with him:

You say, 'hail Umvera Dekash'

Umvera Dekash says 'What, "your name" ? Do I look like a merchant to you? Just because all these merchants are in my library, it doesn't mean that I am one. If you are interested in something other than spell scrolls, then, we can talk.

You say, 'I am interested in something other than spell scrolls'

Umvera Dekash says 'Ah, so you do have half a wit about you! Very well. As you can clearly see, I am the librarian here. I keep track of all of the mystic tomes that enter this divine building. I also take care of all of the purchasing. Have you something to offer?

You say, 'I have something to offer'

Umvera Dekash says 'Excellent! You have no idea how difficult it is to get good help these days. Do you think you would have the time to gather some information for me?

You say, 'I have the time to gather information for you'

Umvera Dekash says 'Even better! Well, it has been some time since the Tesch Val gnolls moved in on the Split Paw. That being said, we still know little to nothing of their origins. If you can bring me back the four scrolls that our diviners speak of, I believe I can reward you well.

Ok now you need to go to Split Paw in the South Karanas, Collect 4 different Tanned Split Paw Skin Scrolls. These are lore items, and look like a rolled up scroll. When you right click you can read the message written on them if you are fluent in gnoll. But even those unversed in gnoll can notice the number on the page. Collect scroll Volume 1, 2,3,and 4 and return them to Umvera in North Qeynos

Umvera Dekash says 'Did I not ask for FOUR scrolls? What are you? Some kind of idiot?

Umvera Dekash says 'Did I not ask for FOUR scrolls? What are you? Some kind of idiot?

Umvera Dekash says 'Did I not ask for FOUR scrolls? What are you? Some kind of idiot?

Umvera Dekash says 'It's about time. Let's see here. Right.. right.. right. Very good. Right. There you are! I translated the text. Now the scrolls need to be bound. Take these scrolls to Jheron Felkis in Freeport. I believe he is staying in one of the spare rooms in Velith and Bardo's establishment. He will ensure they are bound correctly. Return to me when the binding is complete.

You gain experience!!

Jheron Felkis is located in East Freeport in Velith and Bardo's establishment, 3rd Floor. Hand him the
note.

You say, 'hail Jheron Felkis'

Jheron Felkis says 'Ah, greetings, traveler! Settled into one of these rooms, have you? Well, this room is mine, so get out! Hey, wait! You aren't here to deliver a shipment of books to me, are you?

You say, 'What shipment of books?'

Jheron Felkis says 'Oh, I typically receive monthly shipments of books from Umvera Dekash. I hear he has recently been promoted to senior librarian in Erudin. What a vaulted position! I could only aspire. I'm not going to be binding books forever, you know!

Jheron Felkis says "So you are from Umvera! What is this? Oh my! Interesting! I'll bind them right away! A little snip here..a little snip there.. All done! That didn't take long, did it? I won't be doing this forever, you know.
After the milita burned down my father's home, he could not afford to send me through proper schooling. Ah well, such is life!

You gain experience!!

Ok at this point you are given a book called A Splitpaw Tome. You can open it up and read it, 8 pages of text, none of it seemed relevant to any type of monk quest so I wont bother posting the lore contained within, interesting history of the Torn Ear though. Now you get to run back to North Qeynos and deliver the book to Umvera.

Umvera Dekash says 'You have returned safely. That is wonderful! Where the heck is my book, child? In my hands, I see. Such a bright little twinkle you are! Well, let me scribble something down on this pad here. There you are. Take this note to Durkis Battlemore in the Butcherblock Mountains. He is a remarkable smith, but more importantly, he owes me for his smithing books.

You gain experience!!

Durkis Battlemore can be found inside one of the guard buildings at loc 2072, 400

You say, 'hail Durkis Battlemore'

Durkis Battlemore says 'What have ye got there, lad? Ack. I thought I would never hear from that crazy old man again. He wants me to give you a pair o' me gauntlets. I suppose I kin do that. Here you are, Southern. Wear them in good health.

You gain party experience!!

Your reward for this quest is a set of Gem Inlaid Gauntlets. AC 8, dex 3, sta 3, weight 1.0, All/All. And yes I did get the Gauntlets identified:

Ok, i got the gloves today... this guy was stuck at the top of a mountain. Not in the hut. thank goodness for tracking.... I was shocked when I finally saw him at location 1566.56, 1144.52, 94.81 half way up the side of the mountain with feet burried.... very weird. I thought my tracking was nuts... was using levitate or may never have seen him.... got the gloves though...

This would be a good quest for people on the new Progression servers. Especially druid. Back in the day the first time I ever managed to have 1k in the bank was after doing this quest 4 times with my level 21 druid. Being able to port made it easy. I could loot the scrolls from the gnolls from kills made by groups outside of Splitpaw. I could sell these things for 250p as quickly as I could get them to EC and auction them.

I used that first 1k and some other armor/weapons to trade for a FBSS for my level 12 warrior! I was pumped! (oh the memories)

I searched the bazaar & all the merchants in SK looking for scroll #1 (aka. Helle Splitpaw-Haut). Then decided just to go hunt some gnolls for it! After about 30 mins. of hitting every TM gnoll in SK, I found it on the TMG with the whip (Gnoll Hide Lariat). So, if you're searching for #1, look for the gnoll with a whip and maybe he'll drop it for you, too!

With PoK, even non-druids can do this quest pretty darn quickly for a nice reward!

Confirmed: Umvera Dekash is now located in South Qeynos at loc 317, -566. He is inside a shop building labeled "The Herb Jar" which is immediately adjacent to the casters' guild in that zone. You need to go past the bank to get there.

Just a little addition to this quest .. yes its a good quest either for money making or kitting out alts. What i have done to save time is once i had the 4 scrolls i handed em in to get the book.. on the way back to FP i stop off again at the spires and get 4 more scrolls... so now i have the unbound book and 4 scrolls... on to FP then back to qeynos to get note for durkis and yes.. hand in the next lot of scrolls... this way you can be continually carrying 2 parts of this quest at all times.. all my alts now have these except the one who does quest
Umvera Dekash in SOUTH Qeynos next to casters guild.
# Jun 12 2003 at 1:22 AM Rating: Decent
I finially found Umvera Dekash in SOUTH Qeynos next to casters guild / library.

Also, use the external camera, get next to building close to Durkis then spin the camera so you can see the door from outside. open it and click on Durkis -- should be able to hand him the note even as a big race. Same trick works for venodors and bankers in places like Kelethin.

I just did the quest on Sunday. Nice gauntlets for free (unless you count any money spent on ports!!!!). Just alot of running since you need to go from qeynos - freeport - qeynos - butcherblock. Make friends with a porter and your golden.

Don't waste time looking for Tanned Splitpaw Skin number 1! I wasted time trying to find it and it turned out I had what I needed all along!!!!!

Volume one is in the Helle Splitpaw-Haut item. It looks just like the Tanned Splitpaw skin but says volume 1 when you open it.

Volumes 2 - 4 are Tanned Splitpaw Skins. Open them up to see what volume it is.

I bought the Helle at the Centaur merchant and looted the other 3.

I have seen skins/helle at both the Centaur merchant (Ulan Meadowgreen or something close) and Krak Windchaser (aviak village, back of top platform)

# Jun 08 2003 at 11:58 PM Rating: Decent
Just use PoK. It took me about 15 minutes sowed to do this quest after getting the hides. If you're fighting at the spires in SK, you'll no doubt get all 4 within a few hours time, and the gloves are pretty good for the level.
Easy
# Jul 18 2002 at 10:50 AM Rating: Default
If you are a Druid that can port to BB WC and whatever port is closest to Qeynos. (Dont play in Qeynos) Then Just go to SK and nobody really loot the skins so just loot them off of the corpses. A druid can do this quest in 30min after they get the skins.
did this quest at lvl 10
# May 25 2002 at 12:00 PM Rating: Decent
I did this quest as a Lvl 10 druid. Hehe, my 32 paladin got the scrolls, but as he is KoS in EFP, i just transfered the scrolls to my druid and he did the quest. Scrolls are kind of an uncommon drop in Paw ... dunno, i think it only took me a couple hours to round up all four in there.
what to say?

I tried to get Umvera to give me the quest. I've gone as far into the initial conversation with him as when he asks if i have time to collect information for him. I've said every combination of words i can imagine to him to get him to continue. Can anyne tell me, or is this some sort of bug? Thanks
RE: what to say?
# Jun 03 2002 at 6:27 PM Rating: Default
After many attempts to get him to continue, I tried 'Yes I have the time to help you gather information'. Not sure if you can get away with less than that but that was what worked for me and he finished telling me the rest of the details for the quest. Hope this helps.
RE: what to say?
# May 15 2002 at 5:48 PM Rating: Decent
Likewise. I said 'I am interested' then 'I have something to offer' but after that, no matter what i say, he's silent. Any ideas, please?

no need to talk to him unless you want to.
Just give him the 4 skins.
Minimum level....
# May 07 2002 at 4:34 PM Rating: Default
I believe that the minimum lvl for this quest should be changed to 24. My lv 24 Druid was soloing gnools outside of Paw through to lvl 28. Albeit i didn't start collecting the skins until lvl 29. I could have easily completed this quest at 24

Well making an Ikkie monk... was looking at twinkin gear. Wu armor, decent not great, Crescent... o wait it sucks AND is ND... hmm that leaves what under 150plat? (Gloves were not what I was focusing on with a 1hb/2hb weildin monk) Then I remembered seeing Geminlaids on some monk and I had a little weight to spare. I figured I'd spend a day getting the scrolls as a lvl 40 druid. I headed down there knowing I coulnd't solo real well in a dungeon and yelled out "For 2 scrolls lvl 40 druid buffs for YOU for 3 YOUR GROUP!!!" I instantly got 3 from one group and 1 from another person. I gave the guy with one buffs to be friendly but this quest took about 5 mintes. The time it took to run from NK ring to Paw... gonna have to do this some more for all my low lvl guildies now that I'm an officer. Wow what a great quest!
pretty easy to get.

Technically ANYONE could do the quest. The skins can be given to ya. :) Or sold to ya, or even an alt of your own. You would be AMAZED how many people will give you the components for a quest just because they have better or dont want to do the leg work. Also its AMAZING how many of these (at least on my server) are left on the gnoll bodies, no one wants to pick em up. Besides even if everyone was doign this quest, they can only have 1 of each. So evntually they will zone to do the quest... That is to say if they have #1, and everyone else has #1, then its pretty much yours for the asking. :)

No doubt about this quest being easy. I entered the Infested Paw at lvl 30 i think, and about 30min later i had 4 different LORE skins. The most difficult part of the quest for me was too get someone to port me around. Took twice the time to get the port than it did getting the Skins hehe.
The Gauntlets are Ok, and the quest easy, so good luck.

I did this quest as a lvl 24 wizzy, got a group in SK hunting gnolls. Didn't take awefully long to get all 4 scrolls, they drop fairly often, its just a matter of collecting all 4. I also got good exp and loot hunting there. Then it was just a matter of Porting to finish the quest.

Can't get through the door?
# Feb 22 2002 at 12:01 PM Rating: Excellent
If you are of larger race (Barb or VahShir) you will not be able to fit into the building for the final step and you also won't be close enough to the NPC to hand in your letter.

Here's what you do. Durkis will come out of the building if you pull a roaming beastie to the back of the building. Once he's killed it he'll go for a slow walk at which time you will be able to "give" him the letter.

Safe Journey!
Can't get through the door?
# Jul 12 2003 at 10:19 PM Rating: Decent
Stand next to the side of the building. Press the F9 key four times to switch to rear camera view. Rotate the view until you see the door. Click the door to open it. You should be able to see Durkis Battlemore. Give him the Note.

The idea is to position yourself close enough to the NPC to interact, and be able to open the door and view the NPC when you switch the camera view. I also use this in Misty Thicket to deal with halfling merchants.
RE: Can't get through the door?
# May 10 2003 at 6:57 PM Rating: Decent
I think "someone" didn't like this loophole and has sped up Durkis' return trip. I've tried to give him the note several times using this technique and he's zoomed back to his spot in the building, safely away from me and my note. The Give window also closes very quickly with the comment that I cancelled the action.

I'm hoping someone else has another idea or a twist on this one. The gauntlets look nice, but my big kitty is getting frustrated. Smiley: banghead

I am a 24 Erudite Necro and the problem I am having is improving faction from "threatening" to "indifferent" with the guards and Durkis so I can turn in my letter. I have killed literally 100 or more orcs in Crushbone and my Stormguard faction increases every time, but I am still "threatening". Does anyone know what your faction has to be in order to turn in the letter and get the gauntlets? The quest to this point was easy and I did it all with ports through Luclin or running with SOW.

another possibility is Wolfform. i am not sure how it changes faction with the dorfs, but i used it to turn in belts in Freeport and now my Iksar monk is Amiable with the Knights of truth. - you could either turn in the thing while in wolf form or get wolf form in the dorf city with backpacks full of one of the items you can turn in for faction
RE: Faction is a Pain
# Apr 24 2002 at 5:29 AM Rating: Decent
Because of the fact that you're a "heretic" you're going to have to kill literally hundreds upon hundreds of orcs to raise faction high enough with stormguard. I suggest either created a dorf simply to do this quest and have someone transfer the items, or even put them in a bag and do a drop transfer. You could also kill the BB bandits, I'm pretty sure they will build faction with stormguard as well. Either way if you're going to do the killing for faction you've still got a long way to go.

Only has to be dubious or higher... as a necro you're going to have a harder time raising Storm Guard than others would. Another place you can raise Storm Guard is in Runnyeye; killing goblins there also raises it.

You can also try having a druid give you shared wolf form; that might raise it enough to turn in the note. I know that wolf form my my iksar monk non-KOS in Kelethin, so it's a possibility.

This quest was very easy. GOt a good group in middle spire got the skins in about 15 minutes (everyone else already had all 4 of them so i could loot all of 'em). Ran to quenos, then to freeport, then back to quenos, then got a port to BB. Easy as pie and very nice item for such an easy quest.

The gnolls are in South Karana at the spires near the center of the zone, approx -3000, +700.
