This quest begins with Cobi Frostbeard in Thurgadin. He's found in an unmarked shop: After zoning in, cross both bridges, turn left towards the bank, then (at the bank) hang a right. He'll be in the fifth shop on the left.

You say, 'Hail, Cobi Frostbeard'

Cobi Frostbeard says 'Greetings to you. I seek one who calls himself a druid. What do you call yourself, manling?'

You say, 'I call myself a druid'

Cobi Frostbeard says 'Good. I had hoped you were one. As nature's guardian, you fight the never-ending struggle against those who seek to defile it. It is an admirable quality and I wish to aid you. I will provide you with a cap, a tunic, sleeves, bracers, gloves, leggings and boots.'

You say, 'What tunic?'


Cobi promises to make you a Tunic if you bring him an Eroded Leather Tunic and three Black Marbles.

Black Marbles are dropped in various Velious zones while Eroded Leather armor drops from the higher level giants in Kael Drakkel.

Cobi Frostbeard smiles warmly as he hands you your reward. 'You have done well, _____.'

Your faction standing with Coldain got better.
Your faction standing with Dain Frostreaver IV got better.
Your faction standing with Kromzek got worse.
Your faction standing with Kromrif got worse.
You gain experience!!

Faction and Gems

Just got the full suit of Thurgadin Leather Armor for my 39th druid. I MQed each piece for him. He is minus 1 bracer from having a full suit. I will be getting that as time warrants.

Here is the scoop on the Thurgadin Leather Armor.
My Druid is level 39 and the effects on the clickable pieces DO NOT WORK. My sources say 46 is when you can use the effects. The Kunark Armor (Elder Spiritist's Armor) is clickable at level 45. Your faction needs to be KINDLY or higher for you to quest the pieces and you do get huge faction hits from turning them in. The gems drop in Velkator's Labyrinth. I have seen them drop in Siren's Grotto and on occasion in Cobalt Scar.

Good Luck on your Quests

you do not have to be level 45, if somehow you had everything at level 1 it would work as long as faction was high enough. as to how much faction is needed im not sure.
Just a thought

I was looking through druid quests and noticed that the skyshrine tunic, the velium tunic, and kael tunic are almost identical quests for almost identical items. Im wondering if they arent connected in a bigger quest. Possibly turning in all three to get some uber chest piece. Check out the quests and rewards and think about it........
Something bigger

Look at Phylactery quest. Very nice.

i noticed that, too. i'm wondering if that was done so that all druids would be able to get one of these tunics no matter what their faction. it would take a really, really long time to try raising each faction in order to obtain all 3! but that's an interesting idea (given that the end result would be worth all the time & effort)!

It is 100% impossible to have good Coldain COV and Kromrif faction! You can have good COV and Coldain but it is impossible to also have good kael faction at the same time.

Hailing the Efreeti in the temple lowers your faction with all residents there, and put you to KOS quickly.

Sick people like you shout get their removed from here!!!!!

Where do the gems drop exactly?
# Nov 13 2001 at 10:49 AM Rating: Default
I can't find where the gems drop exactly for the chest item. In Colbat Scar is where I found quite a bit of gems off Wyverns. Also I found some different gems off the Haunted Seachest that I coulnd't get to drop off wyverns. Can someone please tell me where black marbles drop? I heard they are rare and I am pretty sure that they are. Do they drop in Velks?

And the proof is, the black marbles needed for this piece do NOT drop in Cobalt Scar. They drop in Siren's Grotto and beyond.

And speak to your english teacher. She isn't earning her money.
RE: Cs Is A graet Plce for these..
# Jul 23 2002 at 12:27 PM Rating: Default
Black Marbles DO drop in CS but its very rare. Ive found the most common place to find these are places on kunark like DL.
one more thing
# Oct 30 2001 at 2:27 PM Rating: Default
Hey it's me doobey agian sorry fogot one thing, that guy talking about fm is referring to black pearls which is the wrong gem. The black marble drops commonly off high level rats and in the following zones velks,sirens grotto,and some other areas too I forget all together like 5 zones but they now drop much more commonly then ever b4 on drinal at least.
# Oct 30 2001 at 2:25 PM Rating: Default
Ok I just had to post a little note here call it gloating if you will but it also has some good info in it for those who need to know the specifics of the quest. First of all my name is Doobey Roller and I am a 41 druid of karana on the drinal server, yes that's right I have my thurg bp at lvl 41. It took me quite a bit of luck and a lot of hard work to get it. I got my eroded leather tunic in kael drakkel at lvl 29! I was there doing faction for a bracer of hammerfall quest just taking some swings with some guy from cih. I chilled for like 2 hours with em and the leather tunic drops off one of these veteran guys. I was the only one there who could use it and they said I could loot it. I almost crapped my pants! Then I bought the other 3 black marble for around 5k a piece on drinal. I went to cobi frostbeard in thrug who resides in the armor shop right next to the bank and hailed him. He considered me kindly I wnet throught the text gave him my stuff and wallaa! Rowyl's Chestguard of Nature stats are 20ac 14 wis 80mana 30 hp 5 svc 5 svd 7 svm 5 str 5 cha and effect regrowth of the grove. At lvl 41 I can not use the proc yet I am fairly certain it can't be used until lvl 45. My only dissappointment in the whole thing is this, the bp looks gay as hell just like a uhtork tunic to the T. Now I am not sure if it is because I didn't change my velious armor thing on or what, but it looks dumb I mean you can't even tell I have anything special on man that really sux ya know. Well of course when I right click it in a group you can tell =). Anyways that's the news and oh btw it is black marble and it looks like a black easter egg with some white swirled in there. It says all all weight .01 and is titled " Black Marble". Hope this info hopes and if you ever need a gg or anything just tell Doobey Roller the happy hafling always willing to lend a hand.

Nice story and all but frankly its a load of crap seeing that his standard response is something along the lines of your not worthy yet if you are below Lev 50.
# Aug 17 2002 at 7:27 AM Rating: Decent
maybe you just didn't have enough faction when you hailed him (which results in a i saw a gnoll pup back there you could kill type message), considering lots of people seem to get this before 50 =P
# Oct 18 2001 at 4:56 AM Rating: Default
Ok lets see if we can clear this up. The eroded leather BP drops in Kael. It is not no drop. It can be multi quested. It ONLY drops off mobs that are at least lvl 53 or above. This goes for all the eroded pieces. You need 3 Black Marbles. As someone stated earlier, not chipped, crused or otherwise. Simply, Black Marble.

These gems drop off hi lvl mobs in Dragon Necroplis, Sirens Grotto and Velks Lab. Any questions?

Guess what?!
# Sep 21 2001 at 2:23 AM Rating: Default
Black Marbles drop just like any other gem, i've looted 2 already and you want to know where? the giant fort in FM! not Velk's, not sirens, but FM.
and don't reply to this saying that i'm stupid and these marbles would never drop in such a low place cuz they do and they did.
RE: Guess what?!
# Sep 27 2001 at 1:54 PM Rating: Decent
Out of curiosity, but where they black marbles, or black pearls?
I have made that mistake, thinking the pearls were sapphires needed for earrings.
The Black marbles were never around until Velious came out, which leads me to believe that they can only be found in Velious.
Just my pathetic opinion.
# Sep 07 2001 at 9:54 AM Rating: Default
I went on a raid in sirens grotto, and i know for a fact that the BLACK MARBLE gems drop there! I think off of the enticers but they do drop there, and they drop alot! I hope this helps, no clue abot the leather tunic tho:)
#Anonymous, Posted: Jul 28 2001 at 6:42 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ok I am sure this will makes some of you sick but when I was lvl 29 I decided I wanted to do a bracer of hammerfall quest in ss. Well when I finally made it to ss my faction was kos with them so I decided I would head over to kael drac and just ask a few groups if I could take soem faction swings. BTW my name is Doobey Roller and I am currenttly a 34 druid on drinal server in the guild celestial storm. Anyhow I actually ran across a few gorups that would let me in so I could ds and heal a little and have some converstaion. Well I got in to a group with some guys form cats in hats and they were giving me the militia swords and junk that dropped that they didn't need. Now the best part about all of this is the group had 4 tanks a cleric and me the druid, well I almost crapped my pants when I bent down to check a giant's corpse and saw a eroded leather tunic on it! There was no one in the group who needed it so it was defaulted to me =). Well I still need the 3 black marble but at lvl 29 I had a eroded leather tunic and at lvl 34 I have the money to buy the marble if anyone is selling and soon enough I will be able to hunt for it myself. Anyways it dropped off a legionare dude in kael drakkel. Guess I can't copmlain about my luck in eq hehe this thing is rare,rare,rare. Can't wait to get the gems so I can finish the quest my faction in ss is now duious and that took aloooong itme to do =). Hope this info helps, and if you see me in game and need a gg or anything just send a tell to Dobbey the happy hafling always willing to lend a hand =)!

Okay, who said anything about withered? We don't care if withered only drops in the hole. This is about eroded leather.

dubious is fine just kill giants in great divide or drakkel wolves
RE: faction
# Aug 24 2001 at 11:51 AM Rating: Decent
Important when it comes to giant/coldain-faction is ..
that ONLY giants WITH beard gives faction and of course the wolwes..
RE: faction
# Jul 31 2001 at 4:37 PM Rating: Default
dubios is fine? get real, you have to be kindly or even ally to have them speak to you of the quests. If you give them the items with faction, you will just waste the items
Try hunting there for a day or two or finding greens on the same factionn
RE: faction
# Sep 19 2001 at 2:36 PM Rating: Decent
I have turned in some quest items to threatening mobs and gotten faction reward. Of course then I ran like hell as they chased me. So think it depends on mob.
# May 24 2001 at 3:28 PM Rating: Default
what do they mean by "pieces" of black marble, chipped or crushed?
RE: Pieces
# May 29 2001 at 4:00 AM Rating: Decent
141 posts
It means 3 x Black Marble..

Not crushed, not chipped.. just "Black Marble" - only one I've seen drop is from the lvl 59 Crystal Destroyer in Velks.

But will obviously drop elsewhere.
Getting it straight
# May 08 2001 at 5:43 AM Rating: Decent
This is the best way to get what items (gems and armor) that you need for you classes armor quests and avoid the confusion:
1. Go to the NPC that gives the quest
2. type /log on
3. talk to npc
4. type /log off
5. exit EQ
6. print text log in your EQ folder

I even edited the log in Word and changed color of the items to red and took off all the other time date goop, your friend sending tells, someone casting a fart, etc. that is saved to the log.
#Anonymous, Posted: May 04 2001 at 1:09 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I have 3 Black Marble the Drop in CS not that hard to get but I do Kite 4 at a time to lol. I got them in 1 day as I lvled frome 49 to 50 . so if you need it go kite in CS you should get it. I did
# Apr 30 2001 at 3:52 AM Rating: Default
Anyone know what kind of faction you have to have to do this quest?
would dubi work, or does it have to be apre/indif or better?
