    Do you know how many gems and lockpicks you can get from the jesters with 1000 gold?
    I don't know either :cool:, but that sure takes them out of the useless category. :D
    I thought a lot on how the 1000 gold that I used on the Cloak would've been better spent at the jesters. :rolleyes:

    It took me 2 weeks of farming Atlantis Above Water at a high rate evry day, and I consider myself lucky, having read what it was like before. You have to persist, the Jabbax Shamans can be very moody :D

    The answer is: a very few. I am spending 500 gold every second week ... and all I get is few flawed gems, spirit stones, lockpicks, some 1000-1500 blue essences, 300-700 red/purple essences and 200-300 andermant.
    1000 gold is not a big amount nowadays .

    I got my cloak of power at lvl 45. Do you guys recommend upgrading it? It's very greedy regarding glyphs... Worthwhile?

    I would upgrade my weapon or any item in the left side before upgrading the cloak.

    Being as I don't "have a real life" and play 3-8 hours a day, (depending on which quest I'm having problems with at the time), you'd think that of my lvl 40, 41 and lvl 38 characters would have more than 3 Jabbax threads...you think? My just-turned lvl 41 has been playing this Cloak 5 quest since level 38...about once every few weeks I get 1 thread...and I'm sorry, but I'm finding that unacceptable.

    Also, my lvl 41 just now finished The Assistant quest because I kept getting the message that the quest guidance couldn't find the boss...Had to look up the problem and after about as much time trying to finish The Assistant as the Cloak quest only to find out THERE IS A BUG that was fixed by starting the quest over again. This game is getting so frustrating that I'm about ready to quit spending my $12 every month to only waste time on quests with bugs...yes, bugs. And from what I hear, the cloaks are crap. If I reach lvl 41 on my lvl 40 character, and lvl 42 on my lvl 41 character (at least another month or two apparently), I'm gonna say to heck with this and just upgrade my cloak 4.

    From all the complaints I've read on this and The Assistant quest, I've no doubt that whoever's in charge of fixing these bugs is dropping the ball, or "those in the know" don't give a da** about the problems paying customers are going through. I'm beginning to wish I had enough money to play Runescape again...never ever had any problems like the ones on this game in the 4 years I played that game.

    And before someone yells at me, I'm not saying the game should be easy, but it should at least be playable enough to be enjoyed...

    It may seem hard, but I completed this quest in a few days of heavy farming with my alt characters.

    The original cloak of power quest was truly brutal and took many months of heavy farming in Ocean of Bones and HOD. This new version is not even a shadow of what it used to be. The maps are so much easier and despite what some may think, the drop rate is much higher.

    Personally I think that it should go back to the way it was, then at the least the complaints would earn a touch of sympathy from those of us that did it the old way.

    Here ya go:

    Spend a few minutes reading what it was like back in the old days when players spent 6+ months of hard farming.

    After my whining, things did pick up. Took me ~97 runs (I didn't keep accurate records at first), with the worst luck early on (2 drops right away, then a 20 run dry spell, a few drops, then an 8 run dry spell). Really picked up at the end with my final 3 runs yielding 1, 2 and 3 drops (the only time I got 3 in a single run was on that final run).

    Bottom line, it's just random stupid luck ... sorry :-(

    I completed this quest with my main character in 3-4 days of casual farming too, the drop rate was indeed decreased since, cause I'm doing it right now with an alt and it's been around 2 weeks, and as I said before, I'd rather have the old quest because, despite the fact I'm spending a few days only in AAW, the drop is crap, if there's any at all, if we get 20-30 runs without a quest item, we get out with 10 cheap and useless green items per run.

    If I was gonna grind for this, at least in HoD I would get out with 5+ pinks, and there's always the possibility to get a leg or a nice item in the process. This one is pretty much a giveaway, I agree, but the previous cloak takes around 99k glyphs of power to reach the stats of the "upgraded one" (minus the crit value), and this wouldn't be an issue if they'd already implemented the level 50 cloak promised by the start of the year.

    Really? Nowadays the players are spending 2000 gold per day in average.
    For me the Cloak of Power is still best cloak in the game even if I have to upgrade it 10-15 levels.

    Im doing the quest Cloak of power just to make 1 example where I need 60 items from eternal watch. What freaks me out is the low drop rate on quest item, not just this quest but in generel its wrong with all quests. You have to run the same map alot time to complete a quest. I have run eternal watch 8 times now and still need 10 drops cmon. This is a great game but that kinda stuff makes it get boring very fast, and in the same time you get above zone levels fast, so when you go to next area you are 2 or 3 level above the monsters.
    In dungeons you are alone thank god, but when you are doing quests in regular zones its even becomes worse when all things are dead, killed by other players wich makes questing a pain in regular zones. This one is tricky to fix unless you put alot more mobs of all types in those maps or they spawn faster again.
    I really like the game dont get me wrong, but the questing drops in all zones need to be alot better like at least 90% as it is now ill guess its about 25% at least for me.
    Hope you take it serious because things like that make me become bored pretty fast.
    Or else keep up the good work :)

    Hey JohnPoulsen, I remember the same feeling. Playing this game for about 5 weeks, 3 weeks ago i was about 40lvl too and almost quited the game coz of boring and repeatable grinding for quests. I hated quests in wilderness coz i'm solo player but then i tried to turn auto accept in groups and sometimes it helped a lot coz full group kill mobs in entire map and drops you can find everywhere, so quests finished really faster, then back to dungeon and grind, grind, grind... :). Quest for Cloak of Power you can leave till you finish other quests in that area, level diference not matter for that, I finished my COP quest in 47 or 48lvl when mobs didn't give any exp and normal drops was low lvl only for melting, but quest items drop was the same.
    This game is very solo friendly, not like all other i played.

    What I did was wait till some higher levels where I had much more damage and travel speed, it made the map runs quite fast. In the first 30 or so runs I just had 1/30 Cloths but it is what it is. Took me a week to finish these 30 items, dedicating 1-2 hours to it every day

    Maybe but now i have had enough of this questing been in heart of atlantis in 2 hours for 4 keys wich dont drop even in a group. Questing sucks in drakensang tbh, i cancel my sub now its not worth it, im patient but it have limits......

    Pick up the quest after you expand your inventory more, so the quest items won't get in the way as much, just do the map when you feel like and the quest will be finished before you know it.
    When passing trough to Temple District, just kill some mobs along the way.
