The scarring left by Veeshan as she clawed Norrath so long ago is more evident in Cobalt Scar than just about any other area in Norrath. Large amounts of water sit in the gouges she left behind, and now the sirens of the Grotto use its cover to lure unknowing ship crews into protruding rocks.

On the land, wyverns and drakes of Skyshrine fiercely protect their habitat while a clan of Othmir critters make their home on the beach below the cliffside.

Anyone noticed that the statue supposed to take you from the Great Divide to Plane of Mischief doesn't work anymore?

I'm not sure if anyone still or will read this, lol... but! I went here with my Druid around 43? and I solo'd the Wyvern's no problem. I found an area where the Cobalt Drake (and the named one) wouldn't attack and I rooted them and just blasted those things.

I just went down the edge of the Mountain and by the time I was done with both sides they had already spawned where I had started.

The exp. was decent at the lower levels, but not as much at 46 (They still con a dark or light blue). But the reason I love this place so much is because between the gems that drop I average around 250-300pp.
(A few times they have dropped some pretty decent armor/weapons that I save for my SK)

HOW TO GET THERE (on a budget!)
# Feb 21 2008 at 2:32 PM Rating: Excellent
If you cant get a port to Cobalt Scar and dont want to pay the 200p for a guild hall crystal, there is a shortcut to running there. Normally you would have to run GD-EW-KD-WL-SS->Cscar (IF you have the key!)

Take the POK book to Great Divide. Head way south and follow the river to the end.

There is a tiny model of a castle there and if you click on it, it will zone you to Plane of Mischief.

Once you zone to POM dont move. Look straight ahead at the trees. start clicking from where you are on all the trees to your front. One of them will say "You are too far away to do that". Now just run up to THAT tree. This short little run is about 50 meters. There are no roamers or mob spawns that will attack you unless you run too far or get lost while trying to move forward in a straight line!

This tree has been enchanted to be the "port-key" to Cscar. It dumps you in the middle of the lake though, so levitate is handy if you dont want to swim ashore or fight off sharks and angry sea-chests. Dont forget to surface, because you zone about 20 feet below the water and can drown if you are a bad swimmer or forget that you need air to breathe.

If you are headed to Sirens Grotto or Western Wastes then you are actually closer to there than if you had taken a druid port to Cscar.

I have used this shortcut many many times. Just dont forget you have to get home somehow. Cheapest way to do that is log out for a few hours and hit the 'GO HOME' key when relogging in

Wow, these post go back years. Back to BEFORE I first joined the game in 2002.
That said, I ran into the same problem over and over: There is NO acronym map for zones.

So what are these zone please? I am only a season 30 Cleric, so going to Cobalt Scar (CS) is not an option for me without a leveled group. But i would like to know what these acronyze to:

GD - Great Divide
SS - (Sky Shrine?)
RE - (Runny Eye?)

I would love to try this one day soon. Thanks

Is the only way out of this zone to port or gate? Have a ranger here.
RE: Leave Cobalt Scar
# Feb 11 2006 at 11:57 AM Rating: Decent
The "legitimate" way to walk out of Cobalt Scar is through Skyshrine. Inside the top of the tower (with the five wyvern spawns) there is a central post that you click on to zone into Skyshrine.

You will zone in surrounded by mobs on Claw of Veeshan faction (the one that anything with wings in Cobalt Scar is on), so if you're KoS, be invisible.

At 50, my wizard friend started porting me to Cobalt Scar on a regular basis. The money there is quite good and the XP is still great at 51. Now, I am going to be a Baron before I get to 52, so the XP ratio does not change in CS for quite a while for me.
My strategy is quite simple:
As soon as I zone in, I cast my best Alliance spell on the Wyverns, this gets me from RtA to dubious, which means, they don't really mind about me.
Then I calm and pull with slow, let me pet take the aggro, Incapacitate, then Choke. When my pet starts getting hit, I simply cast Beserker Spirit (mana-only-Rune) on him. That's about it.
Now, if only someone cared to help me with the named ones...

Since noone mentioned it, I figured I will share:
one of the trees in the forest in Mischief (I have no way to explain which one... except that it is in line between the entrance spawn point and the fake bridge to get into the castle, and there generally is a bixie close to it; I wish I had the excat loc... but 5 min of patience and clicking and you should find it) brings into CS. Since I have been soloing a bit in CS and Dragon Necropolis lately, I was happy to find out that is a much shorter and safer route to the scar.

To summarize: run to the Great Divide, follow the river (in the direction opposite to Thurgadin) to the "dollhouse". Click on the little dollhouse, and you will be in PoM. Run into the forest, click on the tree, and you are in Cobalt Scar.

find the river.
Head to the end of it.
Opposite side of the cave from thurgadin.
Should be no other buildings for you to click on.
At the very end of the river, not the thurgadin side, but the other end.
You will see a tiny tiny castle sitting at the river source.

Tree loc is (-1000, -350) in Mischief. It zones you to Cobalt Scar, at (0,0) underwater in the middle of the bay.

is it safe to port into CS and if yes can a 50 pally and 51 warrior farm wyvern hides for tailoring?

hope i can actually get some of these wyverns as I see this is a good place for quading(wish i was a kitting class). How often do the hides/pelts drop and can i get the cod in any water?

First, if you are not KOS to skyshrine dragons, it is safe to port in here. If you are KOS, it is very possible to get a cobalt drake aggroing you on port in. They have a nasty AOE. However, if you get the porter to invis you first you should be fine.

Second, hides are fairly I'd say maybe 1 out of every 5 to 10 kills drops a hide. Plus they drop the velious quest gems and other decent loot.

third, Cobalt cod can be fished in.... Cobalt scar only.

Fishing is fairly safe, if you are not KOS to the othmir (nobody starts KOS to them, AFAIK), and as long as Kelorak'Dar (dragon) is not up.

You probably can duo these guys. The pally will most likely end up playing healer as much as tanking. Wyverns don't have a lot of HP, but hit fairly hard, up to about 90 pts per hit.

Your worst problem will be getting the spawns, since 3 (2 even, if they are efficient) quadding druids can pretty much keep the whole wyvern area stripped of pops.

i tried CS tonight with the warrior and he has first aid 2 so he was binding to 80% and then i was healing I needed 1 bublle of mana per figth, actually more than that but i had KEI so by the end of the fight i was only missing one bub it was preatty easy we didn't have any trouble handling a triple pull i just rooted 2 and we killed the other. on a side note they die faster than dark blue to a 50 pally frost giants but the seem to hit harder bigest hit they landed on me was a 113 double

Getting There
# Jun 24 2003 at 11:07 AM Rating: Decent
Looking on the zone connections map for Velious, I see the connections from EW to CS, but there is a notation between Skyshrine and CS that says 'locked'. Do you in fact have to run from EW and can you get in from Skyshrine or is there another portal somewhere closer, or a boat? I can kill Ulthork easily enough in EW and would like to capitalize on the tusk quest, but it would be pretty easy to die on the way without port or some safer mode/route.

Don't bother to reply if your answer is 'get a port' cause I have already figured that one out. I need to be able to get there on my own, when I want to, in one piece.
RE: Getting There
# Apr 16 2004 at 3:30 PM Rating: Decent

there is a way to zone into CS from skyshrine. It is indeed locked. there is a quest you can do in skyshrine to get the key which involves some fighting in kael. if you look at the quests for skyshrine and kael you should be able to find it,

This post really doesnt have a question but im just saying its possible to con ready to attack against everyone and still last there for a little less than an hour =). If you do con Ready to Attack and are there in CS STAY AWAY FROM THE DAMNED COLDBALT DRAKES!!! They nuke for 500 and most people dont get away alive..... (they smacked me down in da hole twice)... oh yeah, thats a good reason to get a decent faction =D

Confusing Factions

I have a ton of ulthork tusks that I would like to turn in, but have been reluctant to travel here. Factions are so confusing on this continent. I've killed a LOT of ulthorks, so my faction with othmir is probably okay. What else do I need to raise factions with to be able to either run to CS. (Haven't found the CS port spell yet). I've been killing Coldain to raise kromrif/kromzek faction because I would like to do do some of the Kael armor quests eventually. So, I'm KOS to coldain but still con threateningly to the Giants. Will either of those factions help/hurt? Thanks in advance for helping to clear up the confusing factions here.

Your facton will be fine with the othmir as it starts out indifferent and if you have killed enough ulthorks you very well may be ally by now. You will be KOS to wyverns and drakes unless you have killed a TON of giants. Simply port in and cast invis and you should be ok though. Portal site is usually pretty safe. When invis run down to beach and hand in tuskd to chief.

Hows the money in this zone, I know you can sell them gems and do the tusk quest, but how much you think you can a small group of 3 or 4 lv50's could make an hour?
RE: Plat Lootz
# Dec 13 2001 at 5:34 AM Rating: Default's good, better amoung 1 person than 3-4. Mobs can drop 5pp. Mostly you'll see 1 drop 4-5pp, 2 drop nothing but gold, and 1 drop 1-2pp in a average quad. They ain't HGs. Kill 4 and you'll prolly see 1-2 hides, possibly 1 quest/50pp cash loot gem. So let's say you kill 1 per minute. Drop an average of 2pp per kill. In an hour you may be able to do 50 if you have a decent group. That's prolly gonna be about 250pp in cash loot split among 4 people, so you're looking at bout 60pp in cash loot each in an hour. You're also looking at about 10 gem drops per hour where you're killing 50. 1/5 drop rate is about right. Gems sell for 50pp a piece, so that's 500pp in gem loot. Spilt that 750 pp 4 ways and you get....little less than 200pp per hour. Add in any additional income you make from wyvvern hides and the incredible amount of wrods/runes that drop and you'd be lucky to make 250 an hour here grouping. Meanwhile your average druid makes 500pp an hour here. Just go kill HGs/IGs if you want cash :P, but watch for druids there too LOL

At 53 most of the wyverns would be green to you. I also wouldn't try to solo the Bulwars as they are extremely tough for their lvl. The sirens charm so if you have a decently high MR you might be able to take one at a time. The haunted seachests are tough but doable at 53 solo I would think for a tank class.

#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 17 2001 at 2:06 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You tweeks are great, lots of talkin bout useless loot. I was here jus to cross over to Grotto in order to hunt gems, because Velks is so over camped, i mean have you ever seen 6 58's beating on 1 50levl spider all day, woot big fun. Verant better make quest gems no drop soon. So I'm trying to get to grotto and got trained near underwater tunnel by lots of Sirens, they charmed me so much that they were healing me too, i got lucky. So beware when trying to avoid the meglomaniac uber greed mongers, it is actually dangerous where they are not camping.
