The Teachings of Yoru.... Quest for
the Flowing Black Silk Sash

Required level is 40.

Head out to Windstalker Village in Antonica. There you will find a
wizened monk named Yoru the Old (-1814, -38, -519) who will give you
tasks to fulfill.  First, you have to harvest 10 pieces of wood in
Antonica from Wind Felled Trees. Your foresting skill must be level 20
or higher. If it is not, go raise it in a Tier One zone such as Oakmyst
Forest.  After you have the wood pieces return to Yoru.

Well guess what? Yoru is hungry and you are his cook today.  He
wants Basil Grilled Deer. This requires your Artisan skill to be at
least 5, and you need to purchase the Artisan Basics Volume 5 in the
tradeskill instance of your choice.  Deer meat drops from deer or
can be trapped in Tier One dens.  Basil is harvested as Raw Basil
and must be refined before use.  After completing the Basil
Grilled Deer bring it to Yoru. 

Thought you were done eh? Now the old codger is thirsty!  He wants
ale, and not just any ale... he wants a certain tavern's ale. 
This step is on a 15 minute timer but won't take that long if you know
where to look.  There is a keg at the tavern (-725.2, -15.9,
+231.3) that you need to click. This is along the main east west
highway, east of the 2 guard towers.  Then the timer resets to
another 15 minute setting so run back to Yoru.

Now he asks you to sit and meditate with him. More likely he's just
feeling mellow from the food and ale.  Anyway go ahead and sit
down. But keep an eye out... there they are! Highwaymen, a level 41
group of them, will attack you!  Kill them and speak to Yoru again.

Now he sends you to find Cythan in the Feerrott. This NPC is almost
directly south of the zone in, near the wall (0, +26.5, +961.5).
Everyone in the group MUST speak to Cythan at the SAME TIME.  This
will start a ring event that has a 5 minute timer. 9 Spirit Monks will
spawn one at a time, ranging from level 40-42, and you must kill them
in time.  Each one will be tougher than the one before. After you
kill the Spirit Master speak again to Cythan for the next step.

You now have to kill 4 spirits in 4 different zones. Each one has an
NPC placeholder that you speak to in order to spawn the mob. You can
find them (if they are up) in the Enchanted Lands, Rivervale, Feerrott,
and Zek. Names and locations of the NPCs and their spawns are:

Feerrott: Tarnis at -1870, -22, +749 (in Gulch of Thule near Cazic
Thule) will spawn Sartar the Unrivaled 44^^

Enchanted Lands: Lo'volonus at -99, +31, -1127, in Enchanted Lands
(north part of zone) will spawn Oodan the Tranquil 43^^

Rivervale: Burdop at -27, +7, -212 (along the west wall not far from
zone in) will spawn Borbin the Prevailer  43^^

Zek: Zan Filis at -22.66, +75, -368.87 (top of Deathfist Lookout south
of Deathfist Citadel) will spawn Brother Raster 44^^

WARNING: ALL these mobs will knockback the player they are agroed
on.... for a great distance. I myself have been thrown off Deathfist
Lookout and it isn't a fun ride.  Have your tank pull these mobs
to where they cannot use this advantage; back up against a wall or in
Raster's case run him down to the bottome of the lookout and back up
against it if possible.  In Feerrott try to get  Sartar
positioned so the tank does not get thrown into the Thulians who wander
the area.  In Rivervale back up the west wall so Borbin can't get
off his throw attack. In EL the tank needs to get his back against a
tree to avoid agro from NBs if they con and to not get thrown into the
water. Remember if the tank gets thrown he/she may lose agro and be too
far away to heal if injured. If thrown from Deathfist you may lodge in
a cliff face with an unrecoverable shard so BE CAREFUL! 

OK your group has finally prevailed against all 4 of these difficult
mobs. Now return to Cythan in Feerrott. Have the group members who have
the quest speak to him one at a time.  He will despawn and return
as a spirit called Cythan the Last.   Have your tank back up
against the wall as with the other mobs.  He is level 45 ^^ and
is  IMMUNE to normal piercing weapons. When he is down have the
person who hailed him click the nearby rock to receive the Flowing
Black Silk Sash. Now when your group is rested and recovered, have the
next person talk to the respawned Cythan to repeat the encounter.
Repeat this procedure until all in your group have their sashes.
