If you are lucky enough to get a sinew and you dont need it right away, save it! The gold may be tempting but youll need the sinew to finish the quest eventually.
People will often tell you that the Harpy Hide quiver is better than this because it's easier to get. The thing they discount is the 2 extra slots. Those 2 slots in a long raid can make the difference between owning faces or looking like a n00b, and in grinding it makes it so much nicer to not have to make those extra arrow runs. Also, if you look at the BC items, the new quivers (rep items) are the same as this, so once you have this, you've got the best you can get.
If you have this quiver at BC release, KEEP IT. After reviewing the new quivers available in the expansion, they are IDENTICAL -- 18 slot, 15% increase.
My Ancient Sinew quiver does not look like the one in the screenshot, it just looks like my old quiver. Does anyone know why?
Or you can get VERY lucky like i was and find 1 in the AH
If you dont already have this quiver dont waist your time getting it, unless you just like to see purples in your inventory.
Go with the rep quivers now, easier and the same as this one.
It's not A quiver, it's THE quiver.
i'd just wish tat blizz would make a simular ammo pouch...
I think the reason they made it THE quiver lol is that the EPIC hunter range weapon is a bow soooo in that case they would make it a quiver
It's the AV quiver with 2 extra slots. not worth hundreds of gold IMO.
you either buy the sinew for hundreds of gold, or use an item that you farmed and could have sold for hundreds of gold. either way it costs you.
This quiver is nice, but I wouldn't buy the Blue Dragon Sinew just to have this.
I'd rather sell the sinew for a 1000g or so, rather than have an AV quiver with 2 extra slots.
As of 1.11 this is the best quiver in the game.
how can you BUY this when it is a quest item and it's bopu?
an 18 slot quiver with 15% attackspeed, epix drops in AQ aswell. You have it on the testrealm as a hunter
crossBOWS use arrows, and this is an epic Quiver which is cool as hell... you really dont need 1000 gold you mise well just get the quiver
afer all the point of it is attack speed and 2 slots of storage and to have all epics
maybe you think you need 1000g well if you already have an epic mount what else do u need besides run instances
i would farm the sinew just to feel at not a loss
I couyld not believe it, i never farmed for this thing. My main's guild has MC, ONY, BWL on farm so ill get the leaf and sinew whenever. It dropped while i was doing Test of skulls. i was the only hunter and the group all passed on it and grats me on my epic quiver i didnt even have to say anything other than "OMG! YES!" which IMO is the way it should be handled. I guess for once i should thank Blizz for screwing Horde with test of skulls...
well if you were doing mc and got the leaf chances are your guild can do azurgos to get it and not spend any money
the guy above me hes is right. If u have harpy hide quiver (Av reward) it pretty much defeats the purpose of geting this quiver. unless u want to have a awesome looking quiver then ya get this but the 2 slot is worthless and dont farm this sinew to make a profit big mistake.
look at it this way, if your going to sell the sinew someone still has to buy it. This means that there will eventualy be no demand for the sinew and your scrweing yourself out of the best quiver(I am speaking to hunters, all others either make a hunter, or sell it). I know that the populations of servers are not constant and change daily but, and correct me if I'm wrong, there can only be some many accounts with characters on the servers before it gets full, and with that many people playing the game you'd think that most of them are not hunters which is the only class that can use the quiver
My guess is that it would just "Increase ranged attack speed by 15%" As far as the name meaning there shouldn't be a similar ammo pouch...1) it would be named something else, 2) in WoW there are stranger "ancient" items, 3) this is a game
Yeah, I remember being slack jawed about this quiver when I started playing almost a year ago. I knew me getting this amongst so many other Epics wasn't going to happen, so I just bought the
WORG HIDE QUIVER
. Exact same thing w/o the headache. Nice.
That thing is crazy i tell you!
You get the quiver from one of the 3 quests you get from the tree spirits in Felwood that spawn after you get the Ancient Petrified Leaf...
All you have to do for the quiver part of the quest is turn in a Mature Blue Dragon Sinew, super rare epic drop off of blue dragons.
The other two quests are for the 4 demon heads which give you a Rune Etched Stave and one quest is to turn in a Mature Black Dragon Sinew which gives you Enchanted Mature Black Dragon Sinew and then you right click the staff once you have the enchanted sinew and etched staff and then it forms the Rhok'Delar Longbow of the Ancient Keepers/Lok'Delar Stave of the Ancient Keepers.
Ok, heres how you get it, either kill Azuregos or farm the elite dragons in Winterspring to get the "mature blue dragon sinew" then just go to felwood
(on the island in the middle of irontree woods)
and talk to an ancient there. also note that this is a hunter only quest.
Do you need the ancient petrified leaf to do this? it doesnt say you have to, it only says you need it for the bow quest.
ok i was wondering if someone could give a good explaination on how to get Lok and Rhok (staff and bow)? I looked on their pages but nothing there. Anyone help me on this?
I have been trying for two day's now and this friggin mature blue dragonscale wont drop! whats up with that?
thers a same bag to buy in to Frost W wendor(not sure its 18 maybe 16 slots)and all o must to do its grind some rep LOL
could some one give more detail on how to get this quiver? Please and Thank you.
how'd you get the quiver to show?
now..how about a priest only 20 slot bag with +200 healing? :<

I'm sure I'm not the only hunter out there that hopes one day to be able to get a gun instead of the bow, and an ammo pouch instead of the quiver... one day.
Simplified steps to obtain this quiver:
1.) Go to Molten Core and get the
Ancient Petrified Leaf
Cache of the Firelord
2.) Right click the leaf to start
The Ancient Leaf
3.) Turn the quest in at
Vartrus the Ancient
4.) Now speak with
Hastat the Ancient
(he's right next to Vartrus the Ancient) and get the
Ancient Sinew Wrapped Lamina
5.) Go to Azshara and kill
Mature Blue Dragon Sinew
7.) Return to
Hastat the Ancient
with the Mature Blue Dragon Sinew to finish the quest. Upon completion you will recieve the
Ancient Sinew Wrapped Lamina
It's weird that quivers and ammo pouches don't go above the normal bag slot numbers. Soul bags, herb pouches anyone?
Anyway, I think investing in a 18 bottomless bag or similar is better, as the extra 2 slots are more universal. I never ran out of arrows since lvl 10. I stuff a quiver in my bank with AV arrows, and mail myself a crapload of thorium headed, so they are always available I just need a bank/mailbox. If you need more than 3200, it's not the end of the world to temporarily use your normal bags.
