In conversation, Gersh mentions which namers may appear in the particular instance he offers you. This is your clue as to specifically which zone you've been offered.

Dranik's Hollows: Fire Pit Grand Historian Gersh says, 'You have chosen to explore the Caves of Dranik. The caves are home to some frightening creatures. The caves you will be exploring are home to a vicious pair of creatures known for their strength and cunning. Should you come across a kyv known as the Kyv Bowkeeper, or an Ukun known as the Ukun Fleshrender, prepare yourself for a tough battle. The battle might be hard fought, but some would say the riches are well worth it.'.

Dranik's Hollows: Murkglider Hive Grand Historian Gersh says, 'You have chosen to explore the Caves of Dranik. The caves are home to some frightening creatures. The caves you will be exploring are home to a vicious pair of creatures known for their strength and cunning. Should you come across a murkglider known as the Inky Murkglider, or a rat known as Silentpaw, prepare yourself for a tough battle. The battle might be hard fought, but some would say the riches are well worth it.'

Dranik's Hollows: Watering Hole Grand Historian Gersh says, 'You have chosen to explore the Caves of Dranik. The caves are home to some frightening creatures. The caves you will be exploring are home to a vicious pair of creatures known for their strength and cunning. Should you come across a girplan known as the Girplan Pathmaker, or a discordling known as the Discordling Hollower, prepare yourself for a tough battle. The battle might be hard fought, but some would say the riches are well worth it.'

Strange. I have been adding images to pages here for years now, and this was first time I saw images appear as thumbnails. Don't know how to fix that heh.

I ran the Watering Hole quest. Killed everything in the zone. Returned to Historian and... he gave me the same quest!

How do I get the other quests?

You close that one and ask again until you get the one you want. There are 3 possibilities - The Water Hole - The Fire Pit and The Murkgliders Hive. So its not really "the next one" as they can be done in any order. When these came out people would camp them for the named since there is not really a time limit on how long you stay in one. Think of LDON's only in OOW. You can look up Dranick's Hallows or each individual one and get more info.

I need 1 more sig and I cannot get a mission from this guy. I keep getting a message that there is not an expedition available for me. Had 3 to 4 people in group. 3 people were all 75. When I tried with 4, I add a lvl 68. Nothing.

Suggestions?

Still a little confused about these expeditions. One person wrote that you need a min of 3 people to get in (although 2 can drop out and the last one left can solo) and someone else wrote that they are like ldons. Does this mean that the mob levels also fluctuate based upon group level - ex. if 3 level 58s enter, then the mobs should be tailored to accomodate those levels? Also, like ldons - are these expeditions tailored to a group of 6?

Thank you. Draniks mobs are light blue and am looking for the next place to go at lvl 58.

These r nice zones to farm runes in the higher the level who gets the task the better the loot is. Was there for a few hours one morning had slugworms drop for us(sold those for 14k)& quite a few items to roll on. A level 64 cleric got the mission for us. Didn't have a prob invising between the 2 Named camps in murkhive instanced. All & all we ended up with almost 3k a piece after split with a full grp.

You don't. Gersh only gives out any of three expeditions to the Hollows.

Expeditions

I've done 2 of these expeditions, both for a couple of hours. When I got it from Gersh he never told me what we needed to do but he did say that he would feel better if we had more adventurers. We had a full group of lvl 66 so not sure what needed to be done differently.

We did an expedition in one of the caves. Not sure of the goal. Was a long 3.5 hours of killing for hardly anyloot. No plat, a couple of gems and some tradeskill items. Don't have a list of items though. The mobs do respawn. Everything was Dark Blue to 65. The cave did have deadends, but it led you down a path. No boxes or chests to open. We never did reach the "end" after we killed the two names we quit the expedition. Was 3.5 hours after we started. Exp was so-so for lvl 65.

We did kill 2 PHs and names spawned 1 Rat & 1 Bat about 10 mins later. Killed them both, both dropped Runes. Rat dropped a Lesser Muramite rune, Bat dropped a Muramite rune. Plus 1 lvl 60 piece of gear each.

I would give stats but I'm at the office.. shhhh don't tell my boss.
