What is the trivial for making this cloak?

This is a quest reward and not a tradeskilled item that can be made by players.

Just did this one last night. I had soloed dire wolves off and on and never gotten an MQ pelt. Group with some guildies last night and got 3 MQ out of like 10 wolf kills. Just luck it's random. Aquired skinning stones on a couple of different trips through Wastes. They are also random. As long as you haven't been killing the gnolls you should be indifferent. Walked right up with no camo. Tried a hail just to see if he would respond. Nope. Handed over 2 that's two skinning stones and 1 MQ Dire Wolf Pelt and brief message about Ergrez working on tailoring with pelts and such you find the cloak in your inventory. Very easy quest if you aren't going out of your way to do it and just happen upon the stones and pelt.

Just did this quest this morning in under 30 mins. Got the furs off a dead wolf in GD, that someone was hunting and not looting. Got the stones at locs previously posted by others. When I went to give the items in, noticed that Shortpaw was agro to me. I am Ranger....so Camo'ed and did Sneak to approach. I DID NOT Hail him....just gave him ONE Dire Wolf Fur (MAGIC) and TWO Skinning Stones. I got the tell-tale ding and the item and got my butt outta there. Note: One fur and Two stones. He is located in the Hut on center isle, on hill above the Icehunters on iceflow. Good luck all....easy quest and good item considering the time put in.

I'm a ranger too and I can confirm he's always been indifferent. Still was last night when I did this quest after realising I still had a leather cloak on from about 35 levels ago.

Have you two been killing peaceful gnolls in Velious by any chance?

I just completed this quest a couple minutes ago: 2 skinning rocks, one MQ Dire Wolf skin. Ergriz Shortpaw said nothing, just handed over the cloak.

First of all you don't need Med-Quality pelt.

You can collect the High-Quality pelts or the Med-Quality pelts.

To make the High-Quality pelts into Med-Quality pelts you will need a Skinning Knife (this is a Blacksmithed item), Combine 1 High Quality pelt and a Skinning Knife in a Sewing kit and if succesful you get a Med-Quality pelt you can use for the quest. The trivial tailoring skill to do this a skill level of 15.

As for the Skinning Stones, I noticed from the earlier posted messages that most of the locations were in the ? x 1800 locations. Therefore I concentrated my search to a path spanning between -5000 and -8000 x 1800. I found two stones within a few minutes.

The skinning knife does not combine with HQ dire wolf furs, I tried that already.
The correct version

I think that this quest might be down right now. I completed the Cougar skin mask quest with this guy then, then I turned in everything for the dire wolf cloak and ..... nadda. I got nothing for the items. Maybe I did something wrong but; I turned in 2 skinning rocks and 1 med quality dire wolf fur and got nothing. If these are the the wrong amount of items to hand in will someone let me know.

I believe its 3 skinning rocks I did that quest a year ago.
Damn you MQ!!

The skinning rocks were really easy, me and a mate got 8 in 30 mins, but we also killed at least 30 Dire wolvws and not one MQ pelt!!! WTF!!! any ideas folks?? Have tried auctions but no luck ( . If any of you guys know any secrets lemme know plz )
RE: Damn you MQ!!

I get lots of medium dire wolf furs. I hunt them on the big island in IC near the Dragon Ring.
I completed this quest in less than 1 hour .

I found Calic's loc's to be quite good. Found my two within those locations. Took about 30 mins of running around and lucky I had my druid friend to keep me invisible.

Those Loc's would be within a vicinity of
neg 7500 to neg 5000 by pos 1000 to pos 2000

Hope that's clear. =)

Also, the MQ dire wolf fur I bought in thurg. Pretty nice cloak considering it costed me some pocket change and I didn't have to fight anything.
Kan this quest be multi quested

The skinning rocks seem to spawn south to south west of the rygorr camp. it took me about 45 minutes to find two. and no they cannot be tracked by a ranger as they are not alive.

Well thanks for the loc of egrez.
Super Easy

I rated this as Excellent, simply because you can do this quest without actually fighting anything (auction for the fur) and it takes less than an hour if you get lucky finding the stones.

I did this for my L10 BRD and it Rocks! The only risk factor is running into wandering mobs. Everything in these zone will kill a low level quicker than you can blink.

You don't rate a quest because the quest sucks. You rate the way the person explained the quest.

If they say, "there is this guy, I forgot his name. Give him what he asks for and you get the COOL SWORD. Easy to do." Give them awful.

If they gave all the information then they get decent or better.

If they give all the information and it is writen in a good, easy to understand way, then give them good or excellent.

The person who posted the quest has no control over what the quest will do.

umm... last time I looked, BARDS CANT WEAR IT.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 15 2001 at 5:32 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) No, bards can't wear it, but they can sell it! And if you're level 10, that's a great way to make money.
RE: Super Easy
# Oct 18 2001 at 1:26 PM Rating: Default
Really? So how exactly do you go about selling no drop items?

RE: Super Easy
# May 13 2002 at 12:08 AM Rating: Decent
you sell the MQ( multi quest)unless all parts r nodrop

to MQ you auc the items a MQ and unless all parts r no drop you turn in the no drop parts 1st and as soon as that is done...they turn in the the rest or other part(s) and they get the item

best done in group so you will see any messages given so they know u already turned in your part

if all parts are no drop the person you sell the MQ to will need the part(s)that you dont have or the 1s you just dont need to turn in 8)

This may be old news, but I found the rocks at the following locations:

[Fri Jul 20 07:19:40 2001] skinning rock neg 4964 neg 1986 eastern wastes
[Fri Jul 20 07:35:09 2001] skinning rock neg 5404 neg 1621 eastern wastes

Those are entries in my notes.txt file. Anyhow, it's in Eastern Wastes, just as you come off the dragon bridge head straight out like going to the Ry'Gorr fort. There's a small valley-like area just before you get to the fort. Both stones were found there.

Hope this helps someone else.

Take care,


PS: I know they are random spawns... someone eluded to the fact that they commonly found them "in a valley near the fort, but didn't know the location". My point is, both of these were found there. It may be more common to find them there. Just a hypothesis since two or more people seem to be finding them in the same relative area.
Easy quest

I found the skinning stones by accident. I have never seen any near the coast or the bridge, but just about everywhere else. Could be people are just picking them up more often. The Skin I found on a vendor a little later, sold for 1p and change while apprehensive to vendors.

I was a lvl 11 rogue when i went to velious to see what I had just bought with my expansion, i used sneak and hide all over the place, nothing sees you out in EW or out in IC, so you just get a tp to IC, then use sneak hide / sow and go to EW, there is an area with a frozen dragon on the more southern side called the sleepers tomb or something, just walk around near that and look for little rocks ont he gorund real easy to spot if you as me, in less than 10 minutes I got 2 and then I just used OOC chat and asked if anyone had an mq dire wolf fur that I could have, they were nice and I got one right off, thanked the guy and went to turn int he quest items I was only lvl 11 and yes there is no exp or faction, but all ya do is go back to engrez southpaw or whatever, the one with the last name and turn in all the 3 items same time you get a nice 7ac 5str cloak for only a few minutes time the real pain in the *** was getting a tp outta velious ) So all you newbie rogues want some adventure do velious at lvl 11 or lower even, I was in CC when I was lvl 8 and a lvl 60 shammy was killing spiders down there for thier silks and he killed and let me loot a crystal grinder for free!! Thats a 9/27 2ac for free, and then I went to LGuk and got my mod for free, its no drop mask for rogue bard only and people just let it rot, some nice guys let me loot it... then I went to thurgadin in Velious, and looking in the all the shops, I found a small wisdom diety in the store for 2pp, some body sold it to the shop, so i grabbed it and solf it for 200 back in EC, so this is my new thing, hhe Before I go lvl im just gonna adventure into lots of places that have lore or no drop stuff and ask if people will be cool and let me loot, also check all the shop ) hehe Great way for a rogue to be sneaky and show off his treasure stealing skills ) So be sneaky and go on adventures )

Whoever you are you must be commended on creative gaming if all you said is true. Great roleplaying also. This sounds like something a thief would do. May have to mess around with one now. Great, another character to take time away from real life.
No knife

Using a skinning knife to degrade pelt quality only works on old world wolf/cat/bear pelts.

Found 2 skinning stones right off today. Didn't get the exact locs (I think they change frequently anyway) but I found mine almost within sight of each other directly east of the Kael Drakkal zone towards the middle of the zone. Hope this helps.
Medium quality
# Jun 24 2001 at 2:01 AM Rating: Default
A skinning knife - made by smiths, allows tailors to lower the quality of pelts/skins.
If you have HQ skins, you can transform them easily into MQ or LQ, without having to go and find that exact drop.
Of course, didnt try that - still a few levels to go.

I found stones in Eastern Wastes, I picked up 2 over a period of waiting at a /loc I got from here, neg 6911 by pos 1814, then I found one while lost in the snow at a different loc neg 6986 by pos 2572 and finally I found a place where 3 stones were on the ground around loc neg 6314 by pos 867. Now I just need to find a MQ dire wolf fur. BTW as stated below make sure you get the right guy, Ergrez Shortpaw, the guy with the last name and not the other one named just plain Ergriz (sp?)

-Update: I shoulda checked, bards can't use this thing, but at least rogues can. The Medium Quality Dire Wolf Fur is MAGIC but not LORE or NODROP so it can be traded, I got them as a semi-rare drop off dire wolves in Iceclad over by the wizard/druid portal but I imagine any plain old dire wolf anywhere in Velious could drop one. I also never seem to find these on the vendors in Thurgadin or Iceclad, it may just be my luck though.
