View Full Forums : Dumb quest question

I have a quest from Darkshore where I need to get 5 Fine Moonstalker Pelts. Do they drop these when killed or do I need skinning skill?

They will drop when killed.

Any time a quest requires pelts or anything like that, UNLESS it is a skinning quest, you will find the item as drops from the mob. Only if it were a skinning quest do you actually have to have skinning :) I had a friend new to the game ask almost this exact same question last night. Sometimes, the drop rate is low and you begin to wonder if you need skinning, but thankfully you don't.

Pay special close attention to the quest description. If I remember correctly, that pelt collection quest requires a specific type/level of moonstalker. I believe it even tells you the general (north/south) location. If the quest lists a few varieties, target the higher level versions first as they have a tendency to have higher quest item drop rate than the lower level mobs.

Hope that helps.

The Moonstalkers near the border to Ashenville drop at a pretty good rate.
