I havent ever seen this spell MGBed in PoK and I am not quite high enough to cast it yet but I am curious about something.

What spells does this overwrite and what spells overwrite it? What does it stack with?

this is the individual version. Group version in protection of the glades. It doesn't stack with temp or vitue. But stacks quite nicely with cleric/pally Symbols

What to do with 2nd NoDrop scroll?

If you do this quest 2 times for the earring set, is there anything you can do with the 2nd spell scroll for PotC? Destroy or use for something else? Would be nice if SoE made it a hand-in quest for a random spell like the parchments.

I found a funny cartoon about this spell that is worth a look.

I've seen the comic, but does anyone know the "inside joke" from SOE about the "cabbage"?

Thanks !

When you combine the items in the forge to make the earring, you recieve this spell in addition to it.

This spell is REAL. I just obtained it last week and it wasnt hard to get. It IS a single version of PotG lvl 60 spell for druids. It cost around 800pp to buy all the stuff, but thats all you have to do. I cant wait to use it.
RE: Potc
# Dec 21 2002 at 4:55 PM Rating: Decent
I think you left a zero off the end of the 800pp .... either that or the price really went up on everything since June.

probably he just bought the ingredients for the spell only. Nowadays on karana some traders offer complete sets for xanthe's earring/solstice quest for 5k doing the spell only quest is in most cases just a waste of platinum, since all druids should do the earringquest twice anyway. (unless they've found something better before that or accidentally destroyed the spells)
The quest

Rebecca found in Fungus grove

You say, 'Hail, Rebecca Cabbageleaf'

Rebecca Cabbageleaf seems lost in thought and looks up only briefly from her work. "Oh, hello Cryth, welcome to the New Thicket Inn! If you'll excuse me, I'm a bit busy copying this new [scroll]. I'll be with you in a moment to chat, or to trade if you've come about the [earring]."

You say, 'What scroll?'

Rebecca Cabbageleaf looks up again with a quiet smile, "I'm making a copy of a new Protection spell, it's very exciting! The druids of Norrath have just completed an important ritual, and the gods have blessed us with this new spell! I'd be happy to scribe you a copy, if you were to fetch me the [ingredients]."

You say, 'What ingredients?'

Rebecca Cabbageleaf says, "Oh, let me see... I'll need a sheet of fancy Blessed parchment, a small flask of Dark Root ink, and of course a large quill. I think a Stormraven's quill would be best, certainly better than this one I've been using so far. Bring those items to me and I'll be happy to make you a copy for yourself. I'm not sure where you'll find all of those, I seem to have bought up the last of the stock in several places. Someone's bound to have them for sale, good luck with it!"

Rebecca Cabbageleaf smiles warmly, "Brilliant, you've brought me some more supplies! Here, please take this last copy I've made. I'd planned to use it for myself, but I'll let you use it so you don't have to wait for me to make a new one. I do hope you enjoy it!"

You gain experience!


Blessed Parchment is purchased in Rivervale. The merchant's name is Byl Babbinsbort at loc -140, -120.

Dark Root Ink is purchased in Greater Faydark at Kelethin. Near the druid guild is a store called Bilrib's Smithy. Instead of going through the door, edge around the right side of the building where you'll find Bilrio Surecut at loc 645, 385.

Stormraven Quill is purchased in Surefall Glade in the druid guild. The building has a sign which reads Jaggedpine Treefolk. At the back counter is a merchant named Sequea Erthinon who sells the quill.

I paid roughly 284pp for the parchment, 252pp for the ink, and 261pp for the quill. This was with 100+ charisma and with apprehensive, ally, and amiable faction respectively. (I'm a Wood Elf so naturally the Kelethin folks will like me more).

Your price may vary depending on charisma or faction, but expect to pay between 750-800pp for this spell.

The reward is a spell scroll:

Protection of the Cabbage (NO DROP)
Level 59, 500 mana
Single-target version of Protection of the Glades

Probably true

rumoured to be the new quest spell mentioned in last patch
# May 12 2002 at 2:58 PM Rating: Decent
Heard this is REAL but bugged, I've heard that it's a single target possibly self only, but would be nice to see if it's true. Someone has to have accually seen this spell by now if it's true.

Update- EQTraders has a post on this, aparently it is real, turns out it a quest fo this spell.

1) Cabbages= Karanas
2) Single Target PotG= real manasaver solo.
Now- all we need is a spoiler -)

#REDACTED, Posted: May 10 2002 at 11:53 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You must first forage 2000 cabbages in Oasis, then - after you eat them all - you must camp the Lord Efreeti in SolA. It's first drop - when YOU kill it - will be this spell. DO NOT let anyone else kill the Lord Efreeti or it will simply drop a wilted cabbage.
