    Master Raska may be found at 387, 122, in the monks' courtyard.

    You say, 'Hail, Master Raska'

    Master Raska says 'Hmmph!! Expect to be a great master such as I? Maybe. You still appear to be a [whiff].'

    You say, 'What is a whiff?'

    Master Raska says 'A whiff is the sound of a tail striking air. A whiff is you. Inexperienced. I can help you. If you [want to earn the second shackle].'

    You say, 'I want to earn the second shackle.'

    Master Raska says 'Then you shall perform the first rite. Take this pack. To the Outlands you will go. You will fill and combine the pack with one of each of the following - goblin scout beads, a large scorpion pincer, a froglok skipper's skipping stone and a sabertooth cub canine. Return the full first rite pack and you shall prove yourself a monk.'

    Combine to craft a Full First Rite Pack, which you should hand in:

    Master Raska says 'You have succeeded, young ______! You have proven yourself a skilled monk. You will now wear the shackle of clay. You will now be required to increase your intensity of training in hopes that you may soon be able to earn your [shackle of stone].'

    After you turn the pack in:

    Master Raska says 'You have succeeded, young (name)! You have proven yourself a skilled monk. You will now wear the shackle of clay. You will now be required to increase your intensity of training in hopes that you may soon be able to earn your [shackle of stone].'

    At this point, the shackle of stone quest starts, obviously.

    You say 'What shackle of stone?'
    Master Raska says 'Interested in the shackle of stone are we? They are made for monks who have earned their first two shackles and are ready to climb up to the next rung. A monk who feels he is ready to wear the shackle of stone must first [perform the task of cleansing].'
    You say 'I will perform the task of cleansing'
    Master Raska says 'Go forth to the outer gates and seek out the Iksar bandits. They have refused to bow to the will of the empire and shall pay dearly for their traitorous ways. They often wear bandit masks. If you return with two bandit masks and the shackles of dust and clay then I shall reward you with the shackle of stone.'

    It took 4000 bone chipws to get to indifferent. He wouldn't give my human agnostic mnok the quest until then (I did try at apprehensive).

    Cannot complete quest as there are no sabertooth cubs in Lake of Ill Omen -- may just be on my server, but a pain in the butt nonetheless. Spent hours killing kittens and kits, but did not see a single cub during that time. Checked all the corpses just to make sure one of the larger cats had not swallowed a cub by mistake... no such luck. Even tried to combine my pouch using a kitten canine but Cazic simply laughed at my pathetic attempt. I guess I really am a whiff after all.

    (Sigh) Maybe they will fix it with the next expansion.

    Edit: Cubs have made a startling comeback with the June 16th patch.

    I have Hailed the NPC, and I get the Whiff msg. I have tried any number of combo answers like "what is a whiff" and I get no response. Am I doing something wrong? Or do I need to petition the GM and wait for 1000 hrs for a reply? Any help will be appreciated.

    Do the Explorer's Survival Knife quest as Venorik suggested for all us non scale skin folks! I, being a monk, used sneak, snook up behind him and turned in 4 at a time, a total of 14 stacks. I went from scowling to indifferent to Legion( highest possible for human monk), apprehensive to monks, dub to all except Necro's; still KoS. (note, the Necros are only in West Cabilis, and we don't need to be in there anyhow.) But, I still need to raise my monk faction up to do the shackle quests. Don't give up hope, it took me about 10 hours or less to become pretty much NoN kos to iksars (not worried about necros hehe.) You will, if you even care hehe, destroy your FV faction, Storm Guard faction (thats Dwarf guards, so raise it by keeling in Crushbone or something), and Emerald Warriors (wood elf guards; killing in CB will build it up, or if your a good guy just keel some DEF guards. So all you human monks out there or anyone with the sneak ability....you can pretty much become non kos to all (minus the necros) in one day. Good luck!

    OK. People looking for faction in Cabilis with most guids (excluding necros, gotta kill bandits and other cast out iksars for that) this is mainly for human monks who want to do this quest and dont mind losing faction in Firiona Vie. Dont really need faction there cause of PoP now. Go to Lake of Ill Omen, there is a tower on the north side of the lake. Explorers are there, con green to most 40's. They drop an "Explorers Survival Knife" 4 of these a time, 1 in each slot to an iksar guard near cabilis. Like a line of pillars he's on the left side facing Cabilis. By the time ya get 120 knives your non kos to the guards, turn in the knives and it raises SK, monk, shaman, and all other faction (except necro) turn in about 180 and your indifferent faction to the monks, meaning you can do the quest all the way. Lot faster and a lot easier than doin the 3-4k bone chips

    Bah, Im sorry to say since I was hoping this was going to be my way into Cab to start my shackle quests as a Human, but the knife amounts in this post are bullplop. Bullplop I say!

    I have done 180+ knife turn-ins (just over 9 stacks) and not only am I not indifferent to monks or SK, I am still scowling ready to attack! Troopers became non KoS after the first 60-80 knives turned in but the Crusaders(SKs) and the Monks need many many more. I am guessing the next post might be closer to the truth with 14 stacks to get them to apprehensive and even more to get to indifferent. Dont get me wrong its still better than thousands of bone chips, just not as good as only 9 stacks.

    Also expect a max of 4 knives out of the camp per full spawn, but more often average is 2 or 3. Good thing is the spawn time on the explorers is real fast, only a couple min. Best I had out of one camp was 5, and that was just once.

    ***Update: Ok confirmed that a Quellious human monk will max faction just before 16 stacks (I was still dubious, not apprehensive after 14 stacks BTW).

    Both of you forgot to weigh religion into your turnin amounts. As an Agnostic Human Monk it took me 4 stacks of Explorer Knives to become Max faction with the Legion of Cabilis (Warmly). Also brought me to dubious with all other non-necro factions. Can't do the quests quite yet, but I'm getting there.

    From here, I'm doing all chips because I don't want to do any more damage to my FV faction. Going to have to do enough Crushbone orcs to begin with. ;)

    # Nov 11 2002 at 10:31 AM Rating: Decent
    Excuse my spelling>>>>>
    But I am a Quelious Human Monk and have been working on faction to do the whistlingfist quest.
    I am a lvl 55 monk. I have killed hundreds of Sarnaks and Goblins and have spent most of the week over 40 hours collecting bone chips. I have turned in about 3000 bone chips. I am max faction with legion of Cabalis at Indifferant.
    The Crusadors are still ready to attack.
    Does this mean that I am still Kos to shaman and monk guild or will I have to go inside cabalis to check.
    At the same time a friend of mine is Human Agnostic Monk. He has turned in about the same many chips...His Monk is Ally with Legion of cabalis and he is Threateningly to the Crusadors.

    Can the Quelious Monks do this quest?......seems like I have wasted a lot of my time??? I thought that the quest was fixed so that all monks can do it........Any help would be great. Don't want to die going to Monk guild to find out if I am Ally to them or not. How many more chips do I have to turn in........This is getting to be insane....not sure if I can handle farming more bone chips.....I will do another 500 today and see what happens....

    Yes, you must turn in more bone chips. It requires thousands of chips to raise your faction enough to be safe in most of Cabilis. (Necromancers hate everyone, even other Iksar guilds, so I wouldn't try going there). It is your Quellious faction that is really killing you here. Had you chosen to be agnostic at the beginning, gaining faction in the dark cities would have been a little bit easier. The big question here is do you get the message that your faction with Crusaders can't get any better when you do the turn in, or do you still have room for improvement? If you get the message that your faction has reached it's peak, you're out of luck as you won't be able to get in without the Shaman/Shadowknights handing your *** to you. :(

    Human monks need Amiable faction for quests

    Sneaking so the monks con indifferent doesn't work, they just say the standard "you need to do more for our cause" blather.
    So, heres the short form(still very long) of how my human agnostic monk got to amiable:

    1. Kill goblins, sarnaks, and outcast iksar bandits, marauders, etc to raise Legions of Cabilis to dubious. Will take hundreds of kills but once the Troopers by any Cabilis entrance con dubious you have done it.

    2. Use sneak to get to Trooper Mozo(might be slightly off on spelling) by Cabilis Entrance in Field of Bone with TONS of bonechips and turn in 4 bonechips in each slot per trade(16 each time) to get one faction with every iksar faction but necro guild(more on necros later). It took my monk 3380 bonechips to get amiable, but I also turned in scorpion pincers to the Warlord in that zone for faction as well.

    3. Kill thousands of Iksar bandits to get the iksar necros(Brood of Kotiz faction) to stop being KOS. My monk is still KOS by Necros atm but you can get through town once you learn where to avoid.

    4. Get somebody to bind you at the ruins in Kaesora's in Field of Bone, odds are good you will die several times til you learn how to sneak in the bonechips past the Crusader iksars(SK faction). Con the Crusaders that patrol around city entrance to see your progress on faction. Once they con dubious you can go into town carefully to bank, and you can use sneak to buy/sell and train at monk guild at dubious as long as you stand behind them while sneaking.

    5. Farm Kurn's tower for bonechips(being respectful of the young iksar leveling there) and buy bonechips from them when you can(5pp a stack seems good to most on Prexus). If you are level 20+ the zone is easy to survive in.

    6. Being declared half iksar by the local population and the way every iksar stops and stares at you at the bank is priceless...

    Or is it Bain that gives you the bag.
    I went to Bain and he asked who sent me and he gave me a rite pack and told me that I would know what to put in it. Wrong.. I don't know what to put in it and when I talk to Master Raska he just stands there.

    What is a whiff?

    Master Raska says" you are a [whiff]
    Sagas says "what is a whiff?"
    Master Raska stares at me like a complete idoit.
    Sagas spends the next 5 hrs on the internet and tring variations of the word "whiff" so he can get his friggin first rite bag along whith several unanswered petitions.

    um... I just targeted him and said "what is a whiff?"... (and had amiable faction).

    Next line is "I want to earn the second shackle."

    Multiquest
    # Jun 25 2002 at 1:23 AM Rating: Default
    This does Multiquest. I made a mule handed in the shackle of dust. Logged in my main and handed the combined bag in and VOILA shackle of clay. If you have the two Iskar bandit sashs you can have the shackle of rock shortly there after.

    Good luck

    Skipper and Cub Spawns
    # Jun 07 2002 at 12:17 PM Rating: Good
    Just finished this quest 6/7/02.

    Skippers spwan just outside the Cab zone along the road and off to the right. Also Along the road on the island and across the river off to the side of the road. One of them spawns partially up a tree at loc +900 +2500ish.

    2 Cubs spawn near the first set of ruins out from the zone.

    Both skippers and cubs seam to be triggers for eachother. Kill the skippers (3-4 of them at a time spread along the road and river) then run to LOIO and kill the cubs. Repeat untill you get the drops.

    The item "Skipping Stone" is an unstackable black orb that does work.

    I did not get "a Skipping Stone" or "Frogluk Skipping Stone". Entire quest took about 1-2hrs.
    LOC of Froglok Skipper

    Skippers can be found by following the path south from Cabalis in the Swamp. I spent an hour searching the zone before I followed the path south and found one at LOC +375, +2600. My first kill didn't produce the skipping stone, but I returned about 20 minutes later and found a second Skipper at the same LOC. This one dropped a skipping stone.
    The goblin scout and sabertooth cub took 2 minutes to find outside Cabilis in LOIO. The Large scorpions are easy to find in FoB.
    Happy Questing!

    Yes the Skippers are on this island. Just go around and kill and loot everything on this island to give the Skippers a chance to spawn. Doing this I found three skippers in under ten minutes on this island. None existed before I started my wholesale slaughter of everything on the island.
