Did quest today and after 18 turn ins (72 wings) I got the correct faction hits listed above and 18 flare spells. I was indifferent to her and not sure if you get different rewards with higher faction or you only get the flare spell now.

At apprehensive faction, she won't accept bat wings. Must be indifferent faction or better.

This is no longer correct.

If apprehensive, use your "sneak" function to sneak up to her.
You can turn in stacks, but you only seem to get credit for 2 wings.
I've tried 3 and 5 and 10 and 100 and 1000.
Therefore only turn in 2 about 30 times.
Then log out to get your faction update.
Then log back in and you can turn in stacks of 1000 again.
Don't leave until you are "ally"

I had 2 characters that were very low faction and the Mage trainer would not take any batwings from us.

For characters who can not sneak I found 2 methods that work for turn in.

#1 Offer the wings in stacks of 100. Then have someone cast invisibility on you. She will accept them.

#2 If no one is there to invis you....I opened a trade window, offering 400 batwings, then clicked my cloudy (invis) potion and the Mage trainer accepts them!

I hope this helps.

You don't have to unstack them. I handed in 400 at a time and it worked just fine. Did 500 total as a wood elf druid and it put me where I needed to be.

As a high elf mage not sure where along the line I messed up my keepers of the art faction lol, but she conned apprehensive wouldnt bring up my train window and upon hail I got a piece of rubbish is trying to talk lol :p obviously illusion isn't going to help as I'm a 'good' race anyway, so I ended up afk farming faction in neriak 3rd gate just to the right of zone in from 4th gate accross the bridge standing at the door way the two guards that aggro give faction looked to be on a 5-8 min respawn after a couple of hours i conned indiff and got the quest start upon hail, one thing to add clicking the highlighted speech did not advance speech I actually had to type I will fetch some for you, and then handed in 4 sets of 100 stack bat wings bought from the pok at a time, it took about 3500 to get to could not get any better and con ally :)

was apprehensive, so I just used sneak behind her and turned in however many batwings to get to kindly in stacks of 100. Problem solved.
Wolf form

If you are less than indifferent to Niola, and a druid, use wolf form to con her indifferent. She will then accept wings from you.

Drakin Druid had to have an Enchanter cast High Elf Illusion on them to get to hand in bat wings at all. Took 8000 batwings to get Max Ally in all factions with her. After the first 400 the illusion could be dropped and she would accept them.

Just had to do this with my ranger to get the faction up to talk to Alrik. Tested a few ways to turn in the Bat Wings. You can turn in 4 stacks of 100 and get credit for all of them. I went from Indifferent to Amiably with 352 Bat Wings. Bought 300 from Darius Gandril in PoK for 3p.

After spending about 2 hours running around and chasing bats, I came up with a better solution. Go to PoK, hit up the vender (DE) between Guild Lobby and Bazaar. He sells bat wings 100 for 1PP.
Not getting the pattern
# May 02 2012 at 5:23 PM Rating: Decent
I did the bat wing quest. got up to Kindly with Alrik, but even when I give him the receipt, the text says here is a pattern etc.. or whatever, but I do not receive the pattern it. Anyone have any ideas on this? I went back and redid the whole section from Niola etc.. but still get no Ancient Pattern item.

I had to do this quest so I could continue with my Epic, as a drakkin ranger I was apprehensive of course and didn't feel like running all over the place to try and find different ways to raise my faction enough to turn in some bat wings so I thought I'd try sneak and hide behind Niola, not really thinking it would work since I am not a rogue but it did!

Edit: Once I had done about 10 turn ins (40 wings) I was indifferent. I had 80 turn ins total to get to amiable. If anyone has to go above that from apprehensive, I would at 300 wings log out and then in again to refresh your character. I have heard that sometimes the turn-ins get "hung up" so your true faction doesn't show right away but logging out and in seems to fix it.

I wanted to increase my keepers of the Art for the druid epic so I bought about 1000 batwings and went to find Niola. I'm a half elf druid and she was apprehensive and would not accept the batwings. So I tried a suggestion here, wolf form, but that didn't work. Fortunately, I had the Innate Camo AA. Basically, I would put 4 batwings in the trade window, hit innate camo and then trade. After about 5 turn ins, I was indifferent with her and could continue turning in without any problems.

each set of 4 batwings handed in is worth 4 points.
Wow, how many batwings exactly does it take?!
# Oct 01 2010 at 1:43 PM Rating: Decent
Trying to get my druid to amiable so I can continue his epic quest. Turned in 10,000 batwings so far, started out at dubious, after a few turn ins I was indifferent, then turned in the rest, and I'm still indifferent. Gotta love how faction works in EQ! o_O
If she gives them back to you....

Playing on the Mayong 51/50 server. As of right now, Niola is not accepting batwings. She gave them back to me and said she had no need for them.

As of today quest is still working.

It took exactly 200 bat wings to get from Indifferent to Amiably with Niola. Cost is roughly 2 plat for 200 bat wings.

2 plat and a bit of patience is will do the job.

Just created a high elf on Mayong, and did the quest. It worked fine. Are you using bat wings, and handing them in four unstacked ones?

EDIT: Also, did you hail and follow the dialog? If she doesn't respond with the correct dialog, you probably are too low faction.

The whole point of doing this quest is to get faction. What should I do if my faction is too low to do a faction quest?
Re: Quest broken? No
# Feb 20 2010 at 2:01 PM Rating: Decent
My Drakkin Ranger also had the same problem...I did as others suggested and killed the 6 mobs in Neriaks Foreign Quater 3 times each; which was enough to get me to indifferent with Niola.

You're a ranger and you didn't try using sneak first?
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

You shouldn't be, unless you've been killing High Elves or something else on their factions. Not sure what the minimum is to do the quest without help, but I am sure you can do it at Apprehensive.

Clicking on the Keeper of the Art faction link listed, will list other quests but if your too low for this one, most of those probably won't work either, other than freeing the slaves in crushbone. Killing mobs that raise faction will raise it. Most likely you are either turning in the wrong items. I bought my bat wing(s) from Dark Elf merchant in PoK at the fishing pool, on the Bazaar side of it, or turning them in stacked or something else.

Bat Wing

EDIT: Since this is an old-world quest, most likely going Wolf form will make you indifferent, if it is due to too low of faction.

Yther Ore.

Turning in 500 or more bat wings is ridiculous and outta the question. Esp after doing 600-800 muffins to start the epic. Keepers of the Arts is DIFFERENT faction from the muffins and needed to do the Chess Island part.
I could only pharm about 30 wings an hour. They dont spawn anywhere near enough to get even ONE hundred in a decent length of time. Turning in 50 bat wings BARELY moves your faction at all.
At apprehensive, which I was, you cant even do bat wings anyway.
So I killed Kizdean Gix in Commonlands 10 times just to go from apprehensive to indiff. Not so bad since he spawns every 7 min. Then turned in my pitiful little 50 wings. Killing him another 14 times after that, I was still indiff and getting sick of this. I needed bigger, faster faction.
If you need KotA faction to do your epic, do yourself a favor, go to Neriak and kill the mobs there for this faction: 3 necro women on top of the wall at the zone in, and 3 sks near the PVP arena on the ogre troll side.
X'Ta's Tempi, Timpi and Tompa; Svunsa, Uglan, and Capee.
Five kills of each will get you from indiff to amiable so you can do the chess island part. Just make sure your toon needing the faction does the killing, use main to heal. Just being grouped doesn't ensure that the druid gets faction. These mobs are all 50ish or less and repop fast. Its alot faster than messing with hundreds of bat wings.

Or u could just run to PoK and buy the bat wings from Darius Gandril for 1pp per 100.

After invis through Firiona Vie to get to the porter and lev across the ocean to get to Alrik I found I was apprehensive to him. *sigh*

I ran back to POK found the Dark Elf past the guild hall by the fishing supplies and bought a bag full of bat wings. 8 @ 100 each = 8 plat

Then I went to see the magician who threatened to remove my tongue if I didn't leave her presence. HOWEVER, being a sneaky ranger I stood behind her and hit the sneak button. She con's indifferent and will accept them. After about 12 wings I hailed her and got the quest.

It only took me 3 stacks to get her to amiable from apprehensive. I guess I'll be making lots of fish rolls. LOL Hope this helps!

She would only tell my L54 Drakkin Druid that "I smelled" (LOL). I believe I was apprehensive) I went to Neriak (with Increased Superior Camo) and killed the Xi triplets three times for faction. They work out well if you time the guards since the Task Master thats also on the parapets doesn't react.
After that she was indifferent to me and would give me the Bat wing quest. It took me @ 600 wings (so 6plat) from the Dark Elf general Merchant in POK before she was amniable to me.
