Is this item really as tough to get as everyone says? I really don't want to have to wait a year for 1 item to finally drop in PoHate because its prenerf

Yes. It's really that rare. Maybe 1 SK epic is done every year, if we're lucky!

I think Gnostica recently got one to drop, you can try asking him about the rarity. Not sure if he's up for selling it :)

I'm more than willing to part with it. My main concern is that it's going to a good home. Ie. a peep that will stick about and not just vanish.

As an idea of rarity, I've been on about 20 to 30 PoHate raids in 7 years and have been regularly clearing PoHate solo for the fodder and 2 box for the nameds for 12 of the last 18 months. In those 20 to 30 PoHate raids I saw two to three vampire essences drop, and NO decrepit hides.

In year of clearing a ton of fodder and most of/all of the Ashenbone drakes that were up each clear I've gotten ONE hide to drop.

For comparison, I've looted about:

15 to 16 SEoC
3 Vampire Essences (all looted thankfully as you can't MQ them)
4 Inny Eyes (necro epic)
And a ton of everything else barring the drop I'm after. (Damn you Lord of Ire)

So if you really want it and think you will stick about, I'll gladly part with it for 10k for a new main. (I'd do free, but free I swear more often than not causes a peep to leave the game in the hurry, and in this case you'll feel you've earned it.)

The alternative is to hit PoHate and bug peeps week after week after week for ages and hope you get lucky. (Yes, it's that much of a PITA drop on this server, the worst of all epic drops as far as we can tell.)

Another alternative is to do the Greenmist quest: http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/item.html?item=7029

Drop rate is about 1 in 3 off of the Ashenbrood Master. Seen far more rot than were placed.

As for the SK epic drop. I just got an offer from an old guildie who just needs it to complete his epic. I'll post in the marketplace the next time I get another one to drop, but I don't expect more than one every year or two.

Got my Decrepit Hide on my first Hate raid on the server -- payback for the 40 Hate raids I did on PC before I got a retired guildie to re-subscribe and MQ me the one he had for his unfinished epic back in 2001.

Since I looted mine, I've seen 1, and MQed it for someone back in 2007.

They're that rare.

I agree with Cadsuane -- do Greenmist instead, better weapon by far.

Took me two years to finish the SK epic for my alt, basically waiting to get this drop.

When I decided to come play here completing the SK epic quest was one of the goals I set for myself. I'll figure something out, thanks for the info guys.

Gnostica can you please hold onto the hide, I will get you the 10k as soon as I have it. This is my main and being in a time locked guild this item will get plenty of use!

If you do do the Greenmist, as I am, please be warned that the Hammer of Exoneration is not gnome equipable on this server, and the Kurns drop is missing, so you'll need GM assistance for those steps.

^ good info, do you just send a petition when you are in the proper location when you are on that step? Ive never sent a petition before, is it just /petition? how long will it take to get assistance?

MQ the second quest by boxing a level 1 iksar knight. You can completely skip that stupid bonechips thing just to get your first khukri.
