It only took me about 4 hours total to get the mask to drop. It dropped on the 4th assassin. The mobs spawn every 25 minutes or so in the assassin's room, so just post up there and watch a movie or kill some time on another toon and keep one minimized.

Clickie Socials!

Here's a great way to enable and disable this item with a couple of socials:

Social 1: Enables DE Illusion

/pause 10, /blockspell remove me 590
/useitem 32
/lang 5

This assumes:
* you have the mask in your inventory, at the very bottom right bag slot (I don't have VoA yet so I can't do click in bag yet, maybe someone can tell me which slot number would be for an in-bag setup, assuming this now works as an in-bag click)
* that you have at least the first 5 languages, so that you can switch to Dark Elf speech for authenticity (but the last line can be omitted, it's just there for RP :D )

Social 2: Cancels DE Illusion

/blockspell add me 590
/lang 1

This blocks the buff, in effect removing the illusion if you are wearing it (and I believe it will also block an enchanter illusion DE spell) which is the reason for line one of the social, removing this restriction before recasting it. Again, the last line can be omitted at your discretion. I got the spell number from right here at ZAM, from the spell details page - the very end of the URL which says "spell=590".

I can confirm that this is NOT CLICKABLE FROM INVENTORY! I just took my 60 chanter and 32 Ogre zerker down here to check just that. Zerker looted it, tried clicking it, and got response "Your race, class, deity cannot use this item."

Would've been great for my ogre =(

I think the reason you could not use from inventory may have something to do with the fact that you are a zerker and not a bard/rogue like the item plainly states

He did say in the post he went just for the sake of testing it.
The previous version, Guise of the Deceiver, was bard/rogue only, clickable by anyone from inventory. It now no longer drops, and was replaced by the Mask of Deception. A few people still wonder if the new one was inventory clickable like the old one.

Well, 7 hours and a whole bunch of 25-30 minute spawn cycles later I finally got it. Saw 2 assassin spawns, first one dropped the dirk (boy was I mad), and the second dropped the mask.

It'll be a while before I go back into Lower Guk, that's for sure.

Had one of these on my own and several friends' rogues so I thought it would be easy to get another for my new bard.

About 8 hours later Assasin finally spawned and darn EQ crashes to server select, then gives me a "character logged in" error. I get there and watch the body poof.

Several hours later, Assasin spawns but drops the Dirk.

A couple hours again and I finally got mask....sigh. That was painful.

There are multiple possibilities, let me start with the obvious one.
- The illusion fades when you zone. Each time you zone you must recast it.
- The illusion effects your faction in a positive way, but if you faction is really bad you might still be KoS, like as if you were a DE and had hunted your own kind until you were KOS. This might be casued by your diety, but do not know what diety a rogue could have that would do that, my rogue has bristlebane and it works with him and the smurfs just hate bristlebane. Also if yopu hunted way too many DE at earlier levels.

After I got this mask, I went into Neriak 3rd Gate and did the red wine quest until I was no longer KoS to the guards even without the mask.

Wood Elf rogues and bards can choose Tunare, and I think Half Elves can as well. She may be enough, since Innorruuk hates her more than any other god in the pantheon.

Went in to LGuk and camped Assassin area and the bridge on the way to his spawn spot. Not really expecting any drops...purely to reap the benefits of the XP increase from this mornings patch. Anyways, Assassin pops twice in a row, dropping the mask both times...and both times the mask rotted away. Being a necro I have no use for one and no one else in the zone wanted it either. So, I would say this is common drop. Also, killing the Assassin and other two mobs is easy at level 45 for a necro...just have scream memmed to handle adds and take them down one at a time using slow/sic pet.

Hi, Lvl 44 Rogue here. I took my friend a lvl 39 SK and a lvl 46 Cleric with me on this little mini raid. It took us three cycles of the spawn before the ghoul assasin poped. Cycle was about 25 minutes. The tough part was finding this place. It is up a ladder at the end of a hallway. Most Mobs were blue to me here. But my friend the SK fell off a bridge into the pit below. So I followed him and we had to fight our way out. I had to scout my way around to find a path out. We were both unfamilar with the area. It was quite an exciting quest. Now I will be called Fuzz Toe no longer. It is not easy to pick up elf chicks as a halfling.

Actually BTW no you dont need to wear it to cast the illusion, It can be casted from one of your 8 regular inventory slots, although i still believe you need to be a bard or a rogue to cast it.

It casts from the inventory chief. I've got it and never worn it, yet it puts the illusion on me. Perhaps you meant that the stat increases don't work unless you put the mask on.

bard issues with mask
# Dec 27 2003 at 2:06 PM Rating: Decent

I was lucky to get this mask, but was so disappointed to find I could NOT discharge it, I asked many questions, and I right clicked, I left clicked, I equipped it, I put it in inventory slot, I tried all sorts of things to turn myself into a dark elf all to no avail. People told me I had to be a certain lvl to make it work, but I was already in my early 30's.

Ten lvls later I was frustrated still and finally got an answer from another bard. He asked me "are you singing?" and I noticed that I was, in fact I ALWAYS sing as I love my selos song and am a speed demon. I promptly stopped singing and whalaa, I was able to turn into a dark elf, and I could then begin singing again to turn on selos.

so, if you are having trouble getting your mask to work, take some advice from me and *gasp* make no music for a second, lol, it will work.

I camped the Assassin/Supplier room last night. I can confirm that all 3 mobs in the room are on a 30 min timer. I even timed it with a stop watch =)
I was in that room for the better part of 4 hours. I had the supplier spawn 3 times and the Assassin spawn once. When I got there, another rogue was camping the room. He got the first mask and then left me (32 Rogue & 62 Druid) to the camp.

One thing I can tell you is to root/snare! if you don't and you can't kill the mob before they run off you WILL die.

I saw a lot of PH's but about 1 out of 3 cycles there was a supplier at least. Just wish I would have seen another assassin... oh well another night.

(on the upside i was camping foragers in TT before this and I was lucky enough to get the Iksar mask =)

This weekend me and my FI camped assassin Sat nite he spawned twice and the supplier spawned three times dropping bag everytime. Assassin did not drop mask both times. Stayed up till 4 am waiting for mask to drop. Went back next day. and in 3 spawn times we had two masks and 1 bag. So pretty cool even though we waited a very long time. Camped both lvl 20 bards in Lower Guk waited for Assassin to spawn logged in Bards and looted masks. Least to say I was very happy. BTW Entire zone is on a 30 min timer. More than enought time to get lower lvl chars in without getting attacked.

Well finally after about 20 spawns he showed. My guess is that he spawns about 5% of the time.

don't know if something has changed but was there for 4 spanws (30min between spawns.) Not one time did the assasin spawn. If he is on a 50% spawn probability this is just plain bad luck as is the post before who was there for 5 hours. My guess is that he spawns less than 10% of the time could be as low as 5% or less.
Bad Luck!

I am a 60 human paladin, wanted to see if this was clickable from inventory, like my ammy of necropotence. People don't seem to directly address this anywhere here, they just wonder.

Well, simply put, If you are not a bard or rogue, you CANNOT use this item. It is NOT clickable from inventory for non bard/rogues either. It says wrong class / deity, blah blah.

As of last night, my 16 rogue was able to right-click the mask from a main inventory slot. Apparently the effect is BRD/ROG only (like the mask itself) but doesn't require equipping the mask.

I got this mask at level 5. The live frogs didn't hate me, so Upper Guk wasn't a problem. I used Sneak/Hide to go all the way through Lower Guk. We zone in at point C on's map of the Dead Side, which is 7 on the UGuk map. It took forever due to my extremely low speed, but it worked. I had some friends there hunting for experience and none of them could use the mask, so I thought I'd stick my rogue there in case it dropped. It did.

A few of us ~50s took a ~40 to LGuk for power leveling. We decimated everything in this area almost instantly (we were headed further down).

Pretty much any rogue who can get to LGuk should be able to get to the room. Even if you can't kill it yourself, it may be worth checking to see if someone else is there (for the Light Burlap Sack or even experience) that will let you loot it.
try it!

Just to put my 2pence in with respect to the posting that mentioned several high lvl chars to do this:

1. dont be afraid

2. all u need is a 56 pally to totally clear out all in the way without even gettin below 80health (took my pally under ten minutes to virtually clear zone on that level) and not even taking care to single pull. I am sure this also works with other high lvl mellees. Cake walk if you have higher alt.

3. my 40 bard however could not sneak past the mobs - had to fight way out; so be careful if you try sneak/hide suggested by one post

I have been playing on PVP server, I play a wood elf Rogue, lvl 11 Un-twinked.... Its not easy. Anyways, I was in upper guk, and I was mapping it a bit because the saltwater crocks are great xp at 11.

So I run into this nice bard. (Will edit post at home and totaly give her props) We get to talking, and shes asking what I am doing, I explain im mapping a bit before I hunt. Asking her was shes doing, she shows me, by becomming a darkelf.

So I comment of course on how cool that is, and that I may get one one day. So she offers to have her 60'ish + beastlord clear the way, and I can loot!

Believe it or not you *CAN* sneak and hide, even at level 11. So I sneak down, the ENTIRE way to the assasin's room. My swimming was way too low for the stretch of water. You could probably turn off sneak at this point, and I would have been ok. She cast enduring breath on me.

So there I was, in the assasin's room. I had 'Spirit sight' on, that was I could self check to see if I had the "( )" around my name, to be SURE i was hidden.

She cleared the room before we went up, and then 2 more times. After that, I hear fighting, earlier, this time by a bit. And its the Assasin! She kills him and right after the other 2 in room pop. So its about every 30 minutes as posted, and then Assasin will pop a few minutes before that timer.

I snuck and hid my way out, she battled vampire bats bravely and other baddies. Then something went wrong, I had anticipated it would, there was NO way I could trick the fates so. An AE snare, It easily slowed me by 90%. 'Bond of soul' or something. The really screwed up part was that it dropped my sneak and hide. I was very very lucky, she dropped the ghoul 3 inches in front of me.

then.... the zone re-popped! I saw her dissapear and thought it was a fluke, or that maybe id just calmly sneak out. Nope. LD. Disconnected. Right at the ramp by the icebone skelle guys.

When I logged back on I felt fairly confident I was in a safe place. Oddly, I came back to have a small train, a blur of something mow me down.

She ways on! Whewt. And offered to drag my corpse to live side zone line! So I loot and here I stand, at lvl 11 with a mask of deception. I know its wrong, and I know some work very very hard for theres, I respect that. My RL Girlfriend went through **** for hers.

I just want others to know its possible, Anything can be done witht he right people, or person. I am not 100% sure, but I believe its useable at 15. The spell says it is, and I think someone said they used it at 22ish, at least.

I want all those old school and new school players to know, I know how coveted this item is, especially on a pvp teams server. I respect that very much, and I cant thank her enough!

After about an hour the assasin spawned and we smoked him pretty quick. I looted my mask. One of our wizzies pets ran after a mob that was almost dead and aggroed seemed like the entire zone onto us. Well all of us died and it took all of like 7 hours to get bodies and rezzes. :)

I am not sure about how you guys are getting there, but I learned from my monk that the easiest way to get to this place is from the Raster spawn.

Run all the way (non kos) to the back of upper guk, only swimming is to get to spiders... and they are non kos as well.

Once you get to 'live' side of lower guk, run along the long road there then north eastish through the little maze there to the raster spawn and the pit to minos. They were non kos as well. Figure out where the invis pit is and jump across it. up the little winding path to the ladder. climb the ladder and make your home base the room at top of ladder with stone floor and square hole for ladder. You can log on and sneak and hide till success here easily.

Once snuk/hid, open the door to the gargoyles and hang a right and there are the undead stuffs ... hang another right and you are approaching the ***/sup room (which will be on your left).

No swimming needed at all and only frogs are between gargoyles and ***/sup and not one of these saw through my lvl 9 sneak/hide.

run up there and see if camped... if not hang out or log and come back. Or bring alt there and clear out the place and your rogue/bard will be just 6 possible mobs away from you.

worked for me anyhow.

but once I hit water, my sneak/hide drops. Not sure why... gives message i need to be on dry land or something.

The Gargoyles never saw through my sneak/hide one time after passing them to and from the ladder camp spot several times.

After parking my rogue for well over a year, I dusted off the cob-webs and started playing my rogue. I was at lvl 42.

8 of us, 7 from my guild and one from our alliance guild went. Avg lvl of player turned out to be 49. Was overkill but as the mighty warrior of the group said, overkill is better thank being killed.

When we made it to the room, supplier and the assasin were up. When we killed them, no drop. The spawn cycle was exactly 28-30 minutes. It took 10 cycles before the assasin popped again. Finally got my mask.

Here is some information from my notes:
1)Be patient - took longer to get it than I thought.

2)Keep someone in the room - we did and good thing. People will park there and go invis or log and come back in. We killed and pulled into the room below to kill the time. Had we not had a presence in the room, we may have lost the spawn.

3)Have cloudy potions and invis vs undead potions if there is no one in your group than can cast these if doing this at lower levels. While not kos to the live frogluks, our de members were. The invis vs undead came in handy as we wanted to get to the room asap as there was another group forming when we zoned into LGUK. While they had to fight their way through the zone, we made a straight shot to the room.

4)Have good maps - this is the 2nd time ever in the zone and it was as confusing as the first time. Very easy to get lost (for me anyways, even with maps)

5)Remember note 2 - when we ported out, there was a list of 4 other groups wanting room. I actually wrote down the order and when we left, in /ooc said who had it next and then gave the list by order.

Overall, a long experience getting the mask. Did manage to gain a full yellow in a raid group of 8 and ding 43.

Good luck to those going after this mask. I was happy and actually felt warm and tingly when I got the mask!

Regards to all, Woneye

I recently got my DE mask for my bard and was wondering if anyone knows anything about the Fleshweaver guy they recently put at the Neriak commons zone line. I need to get to 3rd gate to do the wine quest but they stuck this guy right at the zone line! I zone in, my DE illusion drops and this guy will probably kill me. Anyone know if he will kill you as soon as you zone in or what? Thank you for any suggestions.

This is how i got this awesome mask. For 4 days i had my rogue in Lguk asking groups that were camping ***/sup if i could loot mask if it drops, but they never stayed there long enough. Last night in fact, while i was offline, someone tells me that 2 masks drop within 30 mins of each other and both rot LOL. so today i brought my lvl 51 SK over there and started camping. all 3 mobs popped at once, which they did the first time, i had a bunch of trouble with them. bareley was able to kill the supplier which droped the sack, then i had to FD. those frogs are tougher then they let on.
So i get a guildy to come down with me and help. after a few hours with no show on the assasian the guildy leaves, then i get someone else to help me. i camped that place 6 HOURS before the assasian even popped, and thank goodness he dropped the mask that time, in which i logged my rogue and looted. the odds of this happening to you are slim, but it can happen so dont think being able to run down there your first time and loot it within minutes like some of these lucky folks are able to do will happen to you, because it sure as **** didnt work for me! :) goodluck!
Nice little thingy for bard :)

got it when i was 51, bard,
i camped the room myself alone,
there are 3 either knights or wizards or what so ever similar stuff pop in this room,
all con light blue/green with low HP,
charm, pet attack, chanting, and melee out the last one,
no big deal at this lvl,
but have to make sure your pet is attacked by both the other 2 mobs (in a swarm),
it is a 20 to 25mins re-spawn time,
kill them all until the assasin pop,
it cons dark blue to 51 but its HP is low that you can just melee it out flat with slow/haste songs etc.

Dwarf - Besmirched Mask of Conception (Sleeper's Tomb)

High Elf - ?Name - Drops off Stanos (High Pass Hold)

There is a Barbarian Mask, good luck finding info on it. From what I've heard, someone in Legacy of Steel has one, it's NOT No Drop (priceless), and they trade it around for fun...

Vah Shir - Guise of the Hunter (Ssra)

I've also heard of a Human Mask, but can't find any info on it.

High Elf mask is a quest for Stanos' head... you have to give his head to General V'Ghera... which means you have to do the first part of the Rogue epic to spawn him and get it, and that rogue can't get his epic. The General isnt a nice guy, and by no means a trivial encounter. A lot of work to look like an uppity High Elf.

Barbarian mask (Flayed Barbarian Skin Mask) drops off the Avatar of War... yet another non-trivial encounter as I'm sure you know.

Took 4 attempts but I got it.

First attempt, level 7: Fumbled around UGuk (never touched a frog, so wasnt KOS... which helps A LOT), finally made it to the dead side of LGuk. Got in there... nobody there besides me. Literally. So I unhid and bloodgated with the help of a nice ghoul wizard.

Second Attempt, level 9: Got down to LGuk, nobody camping ***/sup. Nobody wanting to kill them either, so I blood gated again.

Third Attempt, level 25: Took some friends with me this time... 55 dru, 51 rng, 28 war (55 dru's other account)... ranger needed to go on raid, so he left. Foolishly. we tried to hold the ***/sup camp by ourselves. Me and the warrior did fine for a couple room spawns, but we caught the tail end of a train when (again, foolishly) pulling from elsewhere. Needless to say the war and I died very quickly with druid following shortly after. Was lucky that a very nice cleric rezzed us all, and druid ported us out ASAP.

Fourth Attempt, level 32: Got down to LGuk no problem. Got to ***/sup room no problem. Waited for one spawn, about 20 mins... Assassin popped, dropped the mask, I was on my way. Whole ordeal took maybe 30 minutes tops.

Was it worth it? Yeah. Its one of the rites of passage that we rogues have. Is the mask anything other than a toy? Yeah, actually. Being a barbarian I am faced with 2 problems. One, I am night blind. Two, I'm huge. Being able to switch races at will is kinda nice, plus it warrants me the ability to shrink myself to a more manageable size, and see very well in the dark.

My Mask of Obtenebration? Yeah thats a toy, pretty much... no real reason to be an Erudite other than to freak people out.

Plus DE's are **** **** in full plate. ;)

Got Lucky

Hehe, after a month of several failed attempts to simply get down there, I finaly convince some of my guildies to go down and camp it with me. As it happened, they were all 50+ so it was no biggy cuting throu the undead and live alike.

Anyways we finaly get to the ***/sup room, right as we get there 2 knights spwan, and are killed quickly.So we settle down for a 2 or 3 hr wait. I just happen to turn around and see a froggy corpse laying in the wall, that must have been killed by a previous group. Just outa boredom I decide to loot it to see if there's any thing intersting on it.

Much to my surprise it was an assassin's corpse and it had the mask, loot it, put it on to show off, and then port out. All-in-all we "camped" the room for maybe 3 min. So it was a very lucky break for us.

Did this with my level 10 Halfling Rogue and was surprisingly easy! I used the walkthru from safehouse which is very good. Could have been easier if I hadnt overdone turning in some CB belts I had omw there (didn't mean to ding 10 until after). My swimming was at 2 my hide and sneak both at 50. I took my gear with me (this I do not recommend) becuase I didnt want to destroy my tailored bags in the bank or the ones on me. I must have passed 20 Frogs and the room full of skellys on the way and did die just short of camp spot when a Frog saw thru Hide/Sneak but that was my own stupidity for going in the AM hours when very few were there killing the Frogs and they all were up. Got lucky a Pally found me and sent a tell asking if I wanted to get my stuff out of Guk (in this case having my gear payed off!) Once at the campspot in walkthru I camped out.

Came back next day, hit hide immediately and did campcheck then asked for looting rights which were cheerfully given to me' waited about an hour and boom my cpu goes haywire and locks up ( had to buy a new power supply cause the fan in it crapped out and overheated the processor).

Came back the following day Hide/Campcheck/Ask for LR and waited about 30 minutes then boom come grab the mask! Had to sneak out due to being over 10 but still easy no problems on the exit run. Dont see where the swim part is supposed to be hard its very short and dont have to stay under water long jumped out in BR right in front of Frog Wizard with 2 others in room (whoa big rush!)

I did try it from inventory before I knew the level requirement and it said you must equip this item and when I tried from face it said you are not of sufficient will to use this item. Now to ding 15 so I can use it )
