Dragons of Norrath Cultural Vah Shir Quests

This is the quest for vah shir to acquire the books necessary to make the cultural armor that is available with the Dragons of Norrath expansion. For more information on the general details, see the Dragons of Norrath Cultural Armor Quest Overview.

You start in Shar Vahl, with Vuro Padfoot at -435, -40, in the building just inside the south city entrance (from Shadeweaver's Thicket). The books do not need to be acquired in any particular order, as Vuro will give you all of them at once if you ask.

Ancestral Book Quest:

You say, 'Hail, Vuro Padfoot'

Vuro Padfoot says ''Hello, Zunnoab. Returning from Norrath? It fills me with pride to see there are still Vah Shir willing to venture off this moon and restore our foothold on [Norrath] once again.''

You say, 'Norrath?'

Vuro Padfoot says ''From what I have heard, things were much different back when we lived on the planet. I have been studying the writings transcribed from before our kind was blasted from the face of Norrath. They are helping me piece together the [techniques] of our ancestors.''

You say, 'What techniques?'

Vuro Padfoot says ''From what I have learned, our craftsmanship has regressed over the years. Our relative lack of competition from other races has made us docile and lazy on this moon. In fact, I've uncovered some forgotten [armor patterns] and a few [cultural symbol patterns] that put our current designs to shame. Would you be interested in learning these ancient patterns? They will take time to craft, but, if you are patient, they will serve you well.''

You say, 'What armor patterns?'

Vuro Padfoot says ''Excellent. To make you a pattern book, I will need a piece of shadeling silk for the cover, a glowing heart stone for the ink, a cracked rhino beetle carapace for the clasp, and a damaged hopper hide to grind down and make a salve which will protect and preserve the finished product. I have heard these items can be found around Shadeweaver's Thicket and the Paludal Caverns. Bring them to me and the armor patterns of our ancestors will be yours''

Quest Summary: Collect and hand in Shadeling Silk, Glowing Heart Stone, Cracked Rhino Beetle Carapace, and Damaged Hopper Hide.

Tips: Shadeling silk drops off the xakra silkworms or lesser shades in Shadeweaver's Thicket, and the xakra larva in Shar Vahl. The cracked rhino beetle carapace drops off the bigger beetles in Shadeweaver's. The damaged hopper hide drops from various hoppers in Shadeweaver's. The glowing heart stone drops off A Glowing Muck Digger in Paludal Caverns. This is the only NO DROP part of this quest. The various grime tunnelers are placeholders for this named. A good camp is at loc (-2822, -842).

Vuro Padfoot says ''Excellent work, Zunnoab. Here is your pattern book. May you use this to restore the standing of our race across Norrath!''

Receive: Ancestral Vah Shir Armor

Cultural Symbol Tasks:

You say, 'What cultural symbol patterns?'

Vuro Padfoot says 'You're interested in the cultural symbol patterns I see. I can give you the cultural symbol patterns but I will need you to run a few tasks for me before I can give them to you. What do you say; would you like to run a few short [tasks] for me?''

You say, 'what tasks'

At this point you will be presented with the standard task window and will be offered the following tasks: Blessed Impressions, Revered Impressions, Sacred Impressions, Eminent Impressions, Exalted Impressions, Sublime Impressions, Venerable Impressions, Illustrious Impressions and Darkhollow Geode. Upon choosing the task or tasks that you want, you will be given a book in which to make the impressions. This book needs to be in your inventory while you're killing the targeted mobs for the task. You will periodically receive a credit for the kill and a credit for the impression. It is random and you may have to kill more than the number of mobs indicated to obtain all the impressions. You don't need to do anything special to collect the "impressions".
