Step 1: The Severed Paw (Qeynos Catacombs)
Before you start Step 1, make sure you have 1 empty space for a container.
This Paw comes from Vin Moltor in Qeynos Catacombs. First of you need to decide if you are going to get it by killing him (25% drop rate), and potentially an hour or so camp before you get the paw. By killing him you also take hits in the following factions Antonius Bayle, Coalition of Tradefolk, Guards of Qeynos, Merchants of Qeynos. So if you have to kill him 4 times to get the paw it may be too much of a faction hit for you.
Alternatively you can use Baking (or hire a baker) to produce a Rat Ear Pie (Trivial 142 Baking, but is so easy/cheap to make you should have no problems creating it at 135 baking). See the baking tradeskill if you would like to level your baking. 1-135 will take about an hour. So both strategies take about the same amount of time. But with the latter you get to also keep leveled baking. (You will need it one day for the amazing Shawl quest in Thurgadin).
No matter which path you decided to take, you need to spawn the bastard. So head down to Qeynos catacombs through North Qeynos Fake wall, East of Qeynos Gate.
Once inside go straight ahead, until you hit a T intersection. Thats your camp. Kill everything that roams in the area (see picture) until Vin spawns. He is level 24 and is NOT a rare spawn, it could take you anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes to spawn him. (He could already be up.)
If he is up and you decided to go the Baking route, kill the rats until you get Giant Rat Ear, or 2x Rat Ears. Once you got the ears, head to South Qeynos and purchase 3 bottles of Kalish (from McNeal Jocub @ -244, -261, 4, Inside Fish's Ale, back room). There is a bakery nearby the Fish's Ale. Create a pie there with the Rat Ear(s).
Two recipies yield the same item Uncooked Rat Ear Pie, does not matter which recipe you use (both trivial at 28):
- Baking Spirits, Cup of Flour, Rat Ears(2)
- Baking Spirits, Cup of Flour, Giant Rat Ear
Once you created the Uncooked Rat Ear Pie, simply put it in the oven by itself to get Rat Ear Pie (trivial 142). If you fail get more Rat Ears or Giant Rat Ear.
Once you have the pie, hand it in to Vin along with 3 (unstacked) bottles of Kalish. NOTE - You can not Hail him, and he moves around, so just give him items as you follow him. He will give you the Severed Paw.
If you chose to just kill him, kill the roamers until he spawns and kill him. Most people it takes 4 or so kills to get the paw to drop, it does NOT drop every time.
Step 2: Gynok Moltor (Befallen)
Platinum Ring - Drops from Gynok Moltor at the Entrance of Befallen. (loc -77, -44, +3)
The reason you want to get the Platinum ring second is because there is a chance you will get the Gold ring off of Gynok Moltor (he has a chance to drop all 4 rings, but platinum is the most common drop).
Gynok is lvl 24-25. VERY rare spawn. His PH can be a iceboned, putrid rat, large skeleton, large rat, or ghoul. Respawn is 16 minutes. The PH spawns right near zone and paths though the locked door down to lower levels of the dungeon and back. It usually takes a lot of time to get him (10h+ of camping). PH respawn timer is exactly 16minutes
Step 3: The Fungus Mutant (Upper Guk) (or High Priestess Mitty in Kerra Isle - see below)
Then collect the following items:
There is a chance you have gotten some or all of these while camping Gynok for the platinum ring.
- Copper Ring - Kill a Fungus Mutant in upper guk loot a Bracket Mildew and trade it to Melixis at Kerra Isle, she will give you the Copper ring.
- Silver Ring - Obtain from the bottom of the lake in Blackburrow. Enter Blackburrow run straight jump into the lake and swim to the ground (loc +37, -50, -225). Or turn in Faerix Spores that drop off Fungus Mutant to Melixis at Kerra Isle for Silver Ring.
- Gold Ring - Kill a Fungus Mutant in upper guk loot degenerated guk weed and trade it to Melixis at Kerra Isle, she will give you the Gold ring. The weed is a rare drop it took me 8 kills to get it. At 16 minutes and 30 seconds between spawns thats about 2.5 hours. It could take a lot longer.
Fungus Mutant is lvl 23-25 in upper guk, he is a druid. The camp is solo able for a lvl 31 Druid. He has no PH and spawns every 16 minutes and 30 seconds. Do the following to break the camp to stagger the spawns, you should be level 29+ to solo this.
Typical drop pattern (making Weed the rarest): Spores, Mildew, Mildew, Mildew, Spores, Mildew, Mildew, Weed.
So the drop rate appears to be as follows:
- Mildew ~ 60%
- Spores ~ 25%
- Weed ~ 15%
Alternatively: High Priestess Mitty (as opposed to "Khonza Mitty of Kerra") is still in Kerra Isle on p99 and always drops either the copper or the gold ring. (Edit 12/05/16 Also dropped Silver Ring). Camping in the castle for a couple of hours should prove fruitful. She, or her priestess PH, is located at #2 on the Kerra Isle map. A 20ish priest class with a reasonable group will have no problems here.
Step 4: Melixis (Kerra Isle)
Once you have Spores/Mildew/Weed (or Mildew/Weed if you grabbed silver ring from Blackburrow), head to Kerra Isle via Toxxulia Forest (SW from Druid Rings, NW from Wizard Rings).
Once in Kerra Isle head to (loc +522, +170, +17) and hand in the Spores/Mildew/Weed one at a time in exchange for the rings.
Note: Even if you're scowling to Kerra Isle, there's a good chance Melixis will be indifferent to you.
Put the 4 rings into the Severed Paw and Combine.
Enjoy your Paw of Opolla
