Just confirmed for myself:

Silent Fist Clan: -344
Guards of Qeynos: -51
Ashen Order: -17

Fun fact:
344 is the last three digits of the number of HPs that both GMs Suuspa Clanim and Tonmerk Plorsin had historically (32344), when it was possible to kill them. But for GM Togahn Sorast, his HPs were atypically 32004. Importantly, Togahn Sorast was the first name alphabetically in the zone before Tomer's. So, the prudent person should wonder, was Tomer's faction hit supposed to be -4? That seems more fitting of a level 1 mob, but methinks the truth will be forever lost to time.

Hehe, now only for this reason, I wish I was an Agnostic Monk rather than Quellious ;) Oh well, though.

Using Tomer and Phin to kill PoD

0) Make a monk newbie in Qeynos, since you'll most likely die and you want to make sure Phin likes you enough to help.

1) Find Tomer in the newbie yard, say "I will lead you back to the Silent Fist Clan", and he'll become your pet. He might be triggered by telling Seta in the monk guild, "I will find him".

2) With Tomer following, find Phin. He likes to wander around Qeynos, and you will be able to kill any non-monk NPC that's around him.

3) Wait until a juicy non-monk NPC comes near. The PoD and the Corporal are both good fights to see.

4) Very important: When your victim NPC walks by, be sure to be standing outside of Phin's arm's reach, then attack your victim. If Phin can reach you when you start your attack, then Phin will attack YOU rather than your victim. Just stand on the far side of your victim.

5) Then the chain reaction starts. Your victim will hit you back in self-defense first (you will probably die, as both your victim and Phin aggro on you). But Tomer will aggro your victim, and Phin will come to the aid of Tomer. Then watch the sparks fly as Phin doubles for 350+.

Takes a little bit of practice... timing your attack for moving targets to be within range, to be away from Phin yourself but close enough for him to assist Tomer, etc... but it's a fun spectacle for the passing newbie to watch.

I've done this tons of times. It's INSANELY funny and cool. The best time I had with this is was when I got annoyed beyond belief by Lieutenant Dagarok killing my main due to corrupt guard factions. I did the trick and after about 5 tries, Phin was beating the jeebus out of Dagarok. As soon as he started fleeing, he headed to the gate. On his way, Lieutenant Arathur decided to help his guard friend (Should be enemy, guards help each other even if the factions are different.) and attacked Phin. Then the two guards at the gate also attacked Phin. 3 guards, hitting for 150-200 on one monk, who beat the crud out of all of them. In fact, after he killed the two gate guards and concentrated on Arathur, it took so long the gate guards repopped and joined the fray AGAIN, Arathur died, one gate guard died, and finally Phin finished the fight by killing the second gate guard again. The entire fight, Arathur was healing and casting high paladin spells.

Through that entire massive fight, Phin never lost more than a half bubble of health. That's how much butt he kicks. All for Tomer Instogle, the guy who joins you and gets killed by snakes.

It's hilarious.

Why do you guys bother telling us how to do the quest and what factions it raises if we can just click on the link for detailed info (with correct name spellings) and everything. You're clogging up the message board.

good use as pet

attack something(other than a monk npc) with him as your pet infront of phin(monk trainer) and phin will kill it for ya, no corpse/xp and u probably die(unless u can survive till phin kills it) but u can make a mule to watch phin kill any npc in qeynos(if u can get them next to him) and u can hail phin to keep him from walking if you are waiting for a wandering npc(lancot, pally trainer...) to come by
Tomer as a pet??
# Sep 10 2000 at 6:53 PM Rating: Default
Curious, can one have a pet and Tomer at the same time? And does Tomer respond to /pet commands. Would be kinda neat, will have to go test this out...
RE: Tomer as a pet??
# Dec 29 2001 at 5:21 PM Rating: Default
He does respond to "/pet who is your leader" with the classic,

Tomer Instogle says, 'My leader is (player).'

Which is funny to see coming from a human. Doesn't seem to respond to any other pet commands, even the few enchanters have.

Tomer behaves like an enchanter pet... He does not accept /pet commands (nor do you get an error message about not having a pet). He engages almost any mob that attacks you.
the pack..

Its easy ta git a pet when yer low level! just go up ta him, say "seta senrt me to get you" or something, do the follow ups, an ya have yer own monk pet! i would attack gnoll pups an see who comes out on top, usually tomer (yay! us monks rule!) wins. its fun an i dont think the corpses dissappear when he gits the killin' blow.
