    Cloak of Power (4/5)
    You wish to wear the Cloak of Enlightenment? Your wish
    Is my command ... though, you will have to pay up and
    do the footwork for me. You are well aware that this
    cloak Isn't made of ancient knowledge alone.
    Collect 25 Rowing Cloth of Eternity from the Goroon
    Warriors in the Heart of Atlantis (5/25)
    Collect 75 Imperial Golden Threads from the Lancers in
    the Suvius Volcano (20/75)
    Collect 9 Indestructible Claw Sakes from Zorlobb
    Lookout Shells In the Temple Sector (3/9)
    Purchase a contract for the Cloak of Enlightenment

    This quests can't get quests Rowing Cloth now. I'm 40 now, but the
    Goroon Warriors didn't get for 1 hours. What should I do?

    Hi, continue farming. I also had a hard time with this quest, I farmed 3 days in the Heart of Atlantis and got 2 cloth but got the rest in 2 hours lol. It's just a matter of luck

    It's been a while since I'd seen one of these threads... Just wait until you are working on the next one... now that is a cape that is not worth the effort. If you are complaining about this one, the next is going to make you rage quit, but even still, both of these put together don't even come close to 10% of the effort that it used to take to get the 1000 gold cloak back when LVL 40 was the max level and you had to farm for the cape in Q6M2 and get the drops from the bugs there. Back then, 1-3 drops a day was considered lucky.

    So, I have a related question.

    Due to the low drop rate from them beetles, I have decided to take it really slow with farming for that last component (perhaps only 1-2 rounds per log-in). One reason is that I only have 400+ gold, though more specifically, it is because I refuse to reduce my game time - which I currently enjoy - to a mindless farming session which this seems to want us to do.

    Since I would presumably be at Level 50, if not 55 (one can hope), by the time I actually have enough gold and complete the 30 flowing cloth for it, my question is whether the cloak of power is worth it given that there are potentially other cloaks out there (again, I am hoping). This probably is subjective to what one interprets 'worth' as, but I thought I'd ask in general.

    Perhaps, to ask more simply - is the cloak of power still an item that I should spend 1k and endless farming on, if one is at Level 50? And this operates on the assumption that like the previous cloaks, it does not scale according to your level.

    I ask this since I note that my conservatively upgraded cloak of (initiation? the one before cloak of power) is already roughly the same stats as the displayed stats for the cloak of power (I note that it can be upgraded).

    Thank you!

    Sadly no. Dragan cloak, New Moon event cloaks and even Kaylin's cloak are a better improvement than the 1k cloak. You can keep the farmed fragments in your inventory tho, so that if a new interesting gold cloak is released at Zahir, you can access the quest immediately.

    Hey there @zboysss ,

    Yes, some more quests need more time to complete. Do not panic for now ;) 5/5 will be harder :p

    Bear in mind that the items Zed mentions are not especially easily obtained.
    • I believe the Dragan cloak is an event item; it's one of the supposedly frequently rotated events, but it's a slog; and Dragan was made (for my still noob now Level 53 RA) rather OP in the last iteration of the event ... it might be purchasable on rare occasions when BP/DSO chooses to make Gnob the event merchant useful
    • New Moon Event, based on forum comments, is an incredible slog-fest ... I only tried the old version of it a few times, haven't the time to waste on the new version while I'm leveling up to 55, dying in recently beefed up parallel worlds, running the Full Moon event (which is in a bit of disarray itself after the recent expansion), and dealing with other periodic events (e.g., the currently running Dark Dwarf Heist event) ... for my sanity, I need a few days of light DSO activity, so New Moon event gets skipped by me
    • To get to Kaylin you have to slog through 450-600 kills in one of the Lor Tac maps (at Levels 46 to 48, I believe) each time you want to make a run at her; and I still find her a bit OP at Level 50
    Also, search for Trakilaki's comments on the 1,000 Gold cloak elsewhere. He still (at least prior to Level 55 expansion) claims it's the best cloak, when upgraded to max Level. Of course that takes millions and millions of glyphs, so don't expect to get it buffed up any time soon.

    You also the one you can buy for Bone Coins. 14k Bone Coins is easy to get and the cloak is way better than the 1000 gold one.
    Plus, if you play 1H and buy the one hand weapon for bone coins, you get the little 2/2 bonus.

    Thanks for this, dkarl. I suppose I'll find out soon about the Kaylin cloak. :)

    As for the New Moon cloak, I currently have 60 blossoms (my other toon has 115 - if only I can pool them together), so I suppose hopefully in another month or two, I'll have enough for a T3 Karabossa cloak (unless you are saying that the Black Queen's cloak is preferable).

    Thanks Baragain. More options!

    The stats look really good on this cloak.

    Is everyone sure this isn't a bug? I've been trying to get the crab claws for about 2 weeks now. I've passed the level at which I would get one since I started trying to get it, I only have 3/9 and none of the crabs are dropping ANYTHING AT ALL!! I keep clearing the board with NOTHING and being told to re-enter the board. It's ridiculous! this crap is clogging my inventory but I want to finish all the parts of that stupid quest.

    Unless you are a completionist, trash the quest and get one of any of a number of better capes that are infinitely easier to obtain. See above posts for examples.

    That quest was truly brutal back then. It took 5 to 6 months to complete and gold wasn't dropping at nearly the rate it does now. The one big difference was that the cape was actually worth putting in the time and effort back then.

    I'll repeat what everybody else is saying and tell you to cancel the quest and forget about it. I'll even go further and say that it not just a waste of time, but an actual waste of gold and inventory space that are better directed elsewhere.

    Just go kill khalys normal over and over until you get her level 25 cloak and move on. From there you can look into other endgame cloaks which will depend on your build.
