Home to Lord Yelinak and his Claws of Veeshan minions. This is a massive tower which can be entered through the Wakening Land or a portal in Cobalt Scar. With winding stairs, twisting caves, and a maze among numerous wurms, wyverns, and drakes, navigation can be tricky. Unless you are an ally of the Claws of Veeshan, you are best off avoiding the city of Skyshrine.

Level 46 is required to enter the zone.

This zone takes you to the EW entrance inside Kael if you click on the giant green emerald above one of the Crusader dragons in the third area.

Thanks, not sure why we didn't have that zone connection added. I've used that emerald many times.

I was poking around inside skyshrine after handing in some armor pieces. if you continue trekking deeper into SS like you were going to yelinak, at one point you will click into a room with a big white pyramid. continue past the pyramid and through the gate, then you can either go left to continue to yelinak or you can make a right turn into a dead end that is Jortreva the Crusader's room (labeled on map, note: she is not up on Phinigel TLP server). in that room on the wall are two dragon claws holding a large green gem and a large red gem. clicking the claw on the Left will teleport you back down to the port in area right next to the skyshrine armor quest npc's. clicking the Right claw will port you out of skyshrine and into kael drakkel, at the eastern wastes zone line! so, add Kael as a connecting zone above :)

Not sure if this is relevant to anyone, or if anyone was curious, but Drakkin start out "threatenigly" to the sentries here. I recently started playing again and had to know, figure if I post here it will save someone else the hassle later.

Hot zone that negatively affects a faction with every kill. Hardy a smart move.. sony..
Suppose its inspires folks to love Kael mobs.. lol
Just wondering
# Mar 06 2008 at 4:28 PM Rating: Decent
Since this was one of those KoS zones from long ago, did anyone take into account that going to any of the previous hot zones would generate the almost instantaneous admittance to the ranger gate club apon entrance to this hot zone.

Or is it just me.....

Follw these directions from the Maze entrance:

East at first 4 way till you get to the first port pad
hang a left (west.. you are following the regular marks on map probaly)
then on that second port pad you get ported up to the far north end of the maze. Walk south a bit off the port pad you just came in from, then walk back on it. Youll be ported back onto the regular path, which is marked on most maps as red lines. Head North now, and youll be ported to the east side of the maze. Now head Directly West , and you're out of the maze .

My old map (probably downloaded from mapfiend) has these red lines on it... but the trick is the "walk south a bit of the port pad you just came in from, then walk back on it"

Looking back on my enchanter epic there I had in my notes:

Upper Maze Part - "hug right to the first portal, hug left to the second, turn around and go straight to the last" to get through)

edit: Here's the original map I used from I believe with the route I took marked on it.

The Maze is really two levels and you end up walking a part of each of them

Ok ... I am a high elf cleric worshipping Tunare.

I seem to recall everyone starting out as KoS to these dragons.

I had never killed a giant in my life on this toon, and yet zoned into skyshrine one day to rez someone (figuring at 70 I could kill anything that attacked me)...and I conned *indifferent* to everything in there.

As I said, at that time I'd never killed a giant - I don't even think I'd been to Velious on that toon before.

The only thing I had as far as dragons go was max ally with Ring of Scale (which I'd gotten leveling up in Mistmoore ages ago).

None of the dragons in Skyshrine that I know of give hits to Ring of Scale when killed (I used to wack them a lot on my sk).

But is there a hidden connection between RoS and CoV faction that moves you out of KoS? It's the only way I have to explain why they didn't start out as kos to me (unless something has changed in the zone).

Hey, im a 54 bard and in desperate need of a uninhabited place to kite/ level, was wondering if this zone would work... and if doesn't,or know any better places, if i could get some info.
What's the deal?
# Sep 21 2004 at 7:50 PM Rating: Decent
OK ... I'm trying to get the Twilight armor for my Bard. And he is amiable to CoV as viewed by all creatures in Skyshrine. But yet not one of the faction quest givers will speak to him. If I try and turn in any of the items for any of the faction quests, they all eat the items and tell him "I will not speak freely with you until you prove to be loyal to the dragon-kin of Skyshrine."

Any ideas? What's the point of a faction quest if you need to be allie first??
RE: What's the deal?
# Sep 12 2005 at 2:29 AM Rating: Decent
You need 'warmly' faction before anyone will talk to you. You gain CoV faction by killing frost giants and storm giants in Eastern Wastes and Kael Drakkel. The giants near the Arena give much bigger +CoV faction than the others.

If you want to check your CoV faction standing without going all the way to Skyshrine, the named wurm Kardakor in the wurm caves in Great Divide is on CoV faction.

Lieutenant Milven is the dragon in Skyshrine who accepts the toes and giant helmets. He will take them before he will talk to you. The helms give a far bigger faction boost than toes. Something on the order of 10 helms will raise you up a full faction level.

At indifferent the Lieutenant will take giant warrior helms to further raise your faction. He might have taken them at apprehensive but I skipped over that part somehow.

You need ally (and possibly max ally at that) to do the actual armor quests and such in here though.

Wack stuff in the arena for the highest faction hits, but anything in Kael will give you +CoV and some even give +Yelniak (or however it's spelled).

RE: What's the deal?
# Aug 03 2005 at 8:17 AM Rating: Default
You need to be ally for the Thurg and Kael quests too, it's just how it is. If you clear out the Kael arena for a few hours you can easily get ally.
Guardian/Sentry Locs
# Aug 24 2004 at 10:24 AM Rating: Decent
Can anyone point me in the right direction to the loc(s) of Guardian and/or Sentry spawn points that drop the armor pieces.

Have read thru the old posts, circa '02, and the locs don't seem to match with what I have seen on my first couple of forays.

Thanx for any help

--- update 25 Aug 2004 ---

Well I pushed in a bit further last night and found a spot to camp out Guardians. On the lower map for the main area there is a small courtyard just before the area with the big pool. There are 2 Gargoyle Guardians that are static spawns there. I was able to single pull them without any problems. There seems to be a single roamer, a Golem Patroller, that walks thru that area. I managed a Guardian Shield, Gorget, and Arms in about 3 hours.

Maze Bugged
# Apr 19 2004 at 5:29 PM Rating: Decent
As of yesterday, 4/18, or even before, the maze is bugged.

Looking at the Allakhazam maps, portal #1 no longer takes you to A, allowing you to access portal 3 from the south so you can get to C and thus exit the maze.

Instead, portal #1 now takes you to N on the upper level, and as far as I can tell, there's no way to get to portal #3 or overcome portal #2, 7, or 8 and exit the maze.

I put in a very detailed petition, even saw a GM on for a short time, but haven't been contacted.

If you have a solution, please email me at

RE: Maze Bugged, but still works

Today (April 21, 2004) I got a nasty shock when I was being the savior and leading someone through the maze. It's the second teleport that takes you to a new spot. That spot is the blue I on the upper level (using map). But, using that to your advantage, the blue I portal you're standing on will take you to the same place as the red B portal that's broken. Just move off the portal to the southeast, turn around and walk back onto it to be ported to the area labelled B and I. Step by step:

1. Go east/ follow the right hand wall until you teleport (blue A on map).
2. Follow the left wall until you teleport (red B on map).
3. Walk southeast a little way, turn around and go back northwest to activate the portal you were standing on (blue I on map).
4. Walk straight ahead (north) to teleport (red C on map).
5. Turn around and walk west to teleport (blue D on map [maze exit]).

If you're nervous about trusting portal B to take you to the wrong place, you can also follow these directions which have always been an alternate route:

1. Go east to the blue E - teleport.
2. Work your way southward to the blue N, making sure your path doesn't cross another letter - teleport.
3. Go south and quickly turn west, hugging the right-hand wall to the blue I - teleport.
(now you're in the same spot as the old way of going through)
4. Go north a short ways to the red C - teleport.
5. Turn around and go west to the blue D - exit.

For reference, the old way is: Follow the right wall to port (blue A), follow the left wall to port (red B), go straight to port (red C), turn around and go forward to port (blue D).

Red B now takes you to blue I.

Also of note, the red and green gem portals (in what's labeled Yelinak's lair on the eqatlas maps) have changed - also a nasty surprise for my un-SoWed self - the one on the right no longer takes you to the bottom level of skyshrine. It takes you to the Eastern Wastes side of Kael Drakkal!

Followed Zal's instructions and made it through the maze with no problems :) Thanks for the info :)

Once you exit maze you are in a big room with one large gate in front of you. Open gate and click on the big bluegreen orb to enter the first floor of the tower.

The game has passed most of the shaman skyshrine armor quests by but it was still fun to make my way through skyshrine and do the turn ins :)

For shaman turn ins, the NPC mob did not respond at first so I ran around and hailed other NPC until they responded and then went back to the Shaman NPC mob and he responded! Weird but it worked.

Ok, I'm a wiz and just want to get my port spells from here. SS is the only place that I have found that I can get three of my ports from. I have gone there with my human wiz, and my dark elf mage and the vender says "don't you humans/dark elfs have your own merchants? I'm not selling anything to you" is this a faction thing or just the race thing. what race should I have to be able to deal with the merchants to get my wiz spells?
RE: Spells
# Apr 13 2004 at 12:10 AM Rating: Decent
My guess is this is a faction thing, you need CoV (dragon) faction in Skyshrine. Get it by killing Kromrif & Kromzek giants, best place is Kael.

I am sure that this question has been answered partially or fully before, but i am going to have to ask again. If I want to do Skyshrine armor (Myrmidon Armor) i have to kill a bunch of giants to get the faction up with CoV...pls correct me if im wrong...but, the unadorned stuff that is part of the guest drops off of Dragons in ToV, more specifically HoT. Correct? If that is so, wouldnt i be hurting my faction with CoV by killing dragons in ToV, ultimately ruining the faction that i worked hard for to be able to talk to the quest NPC? Pls help me out and i appreciate all responces. Thanks
RE: Faction
# Aug 22 2003 at 8:58 AM Rating: Decent
Good question. But no. The area where you kill dragons for SS armor drops doesnt give faction hits at all (halls of testing). You need good faction just to walk by the CoV faction dragons to get to HoT, as well as armor turn-ins.
RE: Faction
# Aug 03 2005 at 8:21 AM Rating: Default
Yes, it's an area which apparently has been designed by the dragon-kind to test the strengths of its allies. You are safe from faction-harm in there.

*I say yes, but that is simply agreeing with the previous statement.

For anyone new who looks through here, don't ruin your CoV faction. You'll regret it later. You may get some spiffy middle-range item off the guards, but later you'll be busting your butt to raise that faction to ally again.

The Giant Toes and Giant Warrior Helmets Quest can be done starting at dubious.

The Circlet of Falinkhan Quest was doable at Warmly faction.

The Draconic Pauldrons Quest is also new and reportedly requires Ally faction.
