Cloak of Shades
# Sep 11 2002 at 8:33 PM Rating: Default
Bloated spiders can be found off the road to Keltoi. They only spawn at night, I believe, as I haven't seen any around that area during the day. They can be hard to find, especially with all the other aggro mobs running around, but they're in there. Undead druids and black dogs can be found at the glowing stone rings on the plains. There are about 3 or 4 different sets of rings, so you shouldn't have any problems finding them.

Laridia can be found around the corner of one of the buildings in Cotswold. Yes, that's outside.

The spiders near Keltoi are the *large* bloated spiders. Smaler ones can be found just a few steps south of Ulf
Can't find Laridia

Can someone tell me where I can find Laridia the minstrel? I looked all over cotswold and she isn't there. I talked to Meran the Weaver at prydwin keep and she says talk to Laridia but I can't find her.

the mobs you r told to kill are random, though this may change with varying classes, i mysel had to kill the red dwarf chief and a black dog, my mate had to kill the chief and a boulderling, so it's a bit of a ****** if u anna grp to do it as u both get different kill mobs. Nice cloak though :)
Different quest?

I just got the quest at level 11. After going to Meran, I was told to go kill an undead druid from Salisbury and a bloated spider in the Camp Forest... I can't find either of those. I know there are undead druids near Mithra (which I'm about to go check) and "Large" bloated spiders near Keltoi, but this really doesn't make sense. If you have any idea what's going on, please post an answer.

"Your steps and tasks may vary... "

I think that explains it all.
Shade is better

quickness is mostly for evade, and stealth is a lot better in the new BG :)

If the Grygs Cloak gives you +4 Quickness, why would you need to use this cloak, which gives +2 Stealth and a measley +3 Hits ?? As a Rogue Type (Infiltrator), wouldn't it be better to keep the quickness ???

rogue types need stealth to stay alive, and most rogue types have a high enough quickness with other items. plus the "measly" +3 hits can mean the difference between life or death. by all means use this cloak unless you have other items that give you +stealth. never, never, never neglect stealth skill as a rogue (even scouts and minstrels).

Red Dwarf Chief

Further to the comment below - the Red Dwarf Chief can take a while to spawn. Be patient. Some say that killing the Red Dwarf Matrons when they spawn helps bring the Chief quicker...I'm not sure if that's true but, hey, it gives you something to do while you wait!
