Robe of the Whistling Fist
The robe of the Whistling Fist is the upgrade to the Robe of the Lost Circle, so obviously that quest needs to be completed first. You need to speak to 'Brother Balatin', who is a skeletal Monk on the pyramid in the giant wizard spires within the Dreadlands in Kunark. The giant spires are located at the far end of the zone, where the Druid rings are.
He has a Plaguebone Skeleton as a PH, and the respawn is approximatly 6 minutes. Brother Balatin despawns after approximatly 30 mins. He is KOS to all, and needs an enchanter or Necro to charm him, otherwise he will attack you. He will still be scowling, but will talk to you and accept the items required.
'Hail Brother Balatin'
Note: The quest is possible to be done via 'multi questing', ie it will work if you use two other people to turn the pipes (or robe) in. You will be able to multiquest this quest until Verant decides to change the whole quest system in some way (and the usual multiquesting warnings apply.)
Firstly, charm Brother Balatin, hail him, and go through all the text (or not --depending on your mood), then have helper A turn in (as in complete the trade by clicking the trade button) their pipe, and wait to get the "May you have the correct items or lost forever will be all" message. Then have helper B turn in the other pipe, again wait to get the "May you have the correct items or lost forever will be all" message.
Then turn in your robe. Please make sure you hand in the correct items, there is not a really short time limit before the trade needs to be completed. One brother I know accidently handed in his TStaff, (luckily before the robe was handed in) but got it back by killing Balatin. Also, it is reported to still be ok if the charm breaks while you are handing in items. Just recharm him and continue as if nothing happened. The person that this happened to still got their robe.
Note: After EVERY piece that is handed in by a seperate person, you will get the "May you..." message.
I recently multi'd this quest with two others, and lost my robe as the first person mistakenly gave in a weapon instead of the pipe. Please DOUBLE CHECK the items you hand in, or just take that extra second to notice whether Balatin is now weilding a weapon that he previously did not have. I did not, and lost my RotLC......
Make sure the recipient of the Robe is the person who hands in the last piece (Robe or pipe.)
Iksar Betrayer - Chardok
This map, originally done by Roatus, and edited by Takko, shows the spawn point of the Betrayer.
Drolvarg Pawbuster - Karnors
The other piece is found on a Drolvarg Pawbuster in Karnors. The link is to Wrenn's guide to the area, and is an excellent source of information, detailing all of the possible spawn points, and other Mobs there.The Pawbuster also drops 'A Metal Pipe', indentical (in apperance) to the one dropped by the Betrayer. This piece identifies as "Zan"
When the two pieces of pipe, along with your Robe of the Lost Circle, are handed in to the charmed Brother Balatin you are presented with the Robe of the Whistling Fist, and the following text:
Brother Balatin holds his arms out and a fine robe materializes before your eyes. You grab it just in time to see the skeleton fade from existence.
The Robe of the Whistling Fists is used in the Monk Epic Quest for the Celestial Fists.
If this guide has helped you in any way, it would be jolly nice to recieve a small donation.

Notes: Chardok was revamped in early October 2001, and the Betrayer used to spawn in the tunnel area, not far from the zone out. He used to be a level 53 Mob, and the respawn was 26 minutes.
