Just because there have been differing spawn times posted, and I was bored working on Craftkeepers faction, I put a stop watch on it.

Spawns every 4 minutes 53 seconds...

Bring your fishing pole and bait, I caught a ton of Greengill Salmon and Kerra Catfish while I waited!

If you ask him about an escaped prisoner, or who Moohank or Binnlin is, he talks about how there is an escaped heretic roaming around.. (He is the real heretic).. he names him as Elial B'roon. (if you want to convince someone you ARENT the criminal, dont give them a fake name that is one letter away from your REal name).. LOL.

He doesnt respond to the 'magician in the forest' tag he hints at, and just repeats the same thing over and over.

The plague dragon thing he mentions is Trakanon, and isnt really new. He was saying that for over a year now. =)

All in all, he is very bugged, and so is Shintar Vinlail, since Shintar says he is a bounty hunter tracking the escaped prisoner (Elial?), yet when you return his 'bones' to him, he says 'i dont need that right now..."...

*sigh old original eq broken quests and npc's*..

How do you figure out how many points you get/lose for killing an NPC? Is it just a guess or is there a way to find out how many points you'd need to go from Dubious to Aimable?

Killing Elial Brook:
-20 points Heretics (Paineel)
+20 points Deepwater Knights (Erudin CLR/PAL Prexxus)
+20 points Gate Callers (Erudin MAG)
+20 points Craftkeepers (Erudin ENC)
+20 points Crimson Hands (Erudin WIZ)

He has 100 HP. If you can kill him with one nuke, his pet goes poof :). He always drops the Bones for the Heretic Battle quest, some copper, and about 1 time in 10 he drops a Necromancer Blood.

Another Heretic NPC you can kill for the same factions is Noclin Saah in the Paineel newbie yard.

Unfortunately there's no way to see exact faction numbers just from the messages, but there are indirect ways to figure it out.

For example: if your Heretics faction is at max and you kill this guy to lower your Heretics faction, your faction will reach max again after killing 20 kobolds in Warrens. So it can be inferred that this guy has a 20 point faction hit with Heretics.

To gain faction from a mob, all you have to do is be hit or hit in the fight once. And have the mob die. So if two or more people were in a group, would the points be slit up? You said there are 20 points per kill. So if two killed would that be 20 points or 10 points each? If it is not devided, then it shouldn't matter if it's camped or not just shoot an arrow or something, and you get the faction hit.

No, does not matter how many in the Party, group, or raid, Every person that hits it gets the same amount of faction hit. 20 not matter what, its not divided up.

Thanks. Appreciate the reply.

To be honest I've never heard of NPC's giving more then one faction hit per kill. Quests most definatly.

As said earlier, the other guy will not aggro if you keep out of his range. However, keep an eye out for Sentiel Creot he wanders down to the docks on a regular basis and will kill anyone he sees attacking Elial Brooks.

The Fellow down the row is far enough away that if you pull from Elial's righthand side, he will not agro. He will only agro if you go near him so no fear there. Good hunting.

My paladin has been working across Norrath getting faction with all the paladin guilds up to at least amiable. So now it was Elial's turn to contribute to this holy crusade. In 10 kills he dropped Necromancer Blood twice. All well and good, but what's it good for?

The other day while I was camping Elial Brook for faction, I was killed by a nearby NPC called Khartenne Skurl. This necro was red and dubious to me lvl 46 pally. I hailed him before he wouldn't talk to me, but after Elial ran away Khartenne assisted Elial and quickly killed me with a 700HP DD spell and some swift punches.

I was a lvl 23 human paladin and had just killed guard fentallin in efp 1 too many times. After getting my corpse I figured I would go to erudin and do the inert tonic quest some to repair militia faction. Once I got to erudin, I found out that I could not do the quest until I had amiable faction with the craftkeepers. In a fit of desperation I found Elial Brook. After 2 hours of killing him(6 minute spawn x 20) I had gone from dubious to amiable with Deepwater Knights, Craftkeepers, Crimson Hands and the Gate Callers. I also had a stack of 20 "bones", so I took these and handed them to the mage(Crimson Hands) guild master and he gave me faction with both erudin guards, Crimson Hands, and something else which I have forgetten. That is how I went from dubious to amiable with almost everyone in erudin, and dubious to allied with the Crimson hands in 2 hours. Hope someone can use this information.


BTW, about 25 left gob ears in HHK(hand to captain Bosec) and 50 inert tonic repetitions took away atleast 1 militia guard killing.

The guy you give the bones to (Markus something) is indeed the mage guildmaster, but he's not a Crimson Hand - those are the wizards. He's a Gatecaller, and is on the top floor of their tower in Erudin Palace. You get positive faction to the Gatecallers (again, not the CH), the palace guard, and the High Council of Erudin by that quest. BTW, fifty inert tonic quests and I'm still "dubious" to the Corrupt Qeynos Guards - apparently I was perilously close to being KoS there.

I camped him for around 3 hours, and killed him 17 times. I then went to check my faction, and it had gone from dubious to amiable. And I also got the barnacle breastplate quest. I am a lvl 12 half elf ranger.

# May 08 2001 at 4:22 PM Rating: Default
Because of all the advantages of beating him down, is he camped constantly? Also, the main thing I wanted to ask is can a lvl 21 druid take this guy down without being feared? I plan to port there and take this guy down constantly till I can do the book quest. I have gotten different advice from everyone on what I have to do to get the card....
RE: Some what sheepish but...

On SolRo he is usually uncamped.
And yes, a lvl 21 Druid can take him down without any probs. U ARE THE UBER MOB, not the poor necro!

should kill him early and often. Killing him and turning in his bones gives faction for every guild in Erudin, except the merchants. By the way, the bones are not lore, in fact they are stackable.
He was an easy solo for my eighth level wizard. I regret not grouping and trying him earlier. He is a caster, and therefore has relatively few hit points for his level. I stood on the hill directly north of him and could get off two fire bolts before his pet was in melee range. He has a fear spell which he might rarely get in. If he does, get ready to use your shock of ice. You don't have to have him in your line of sight to use this spell. Once Elial falls, his pet will soon follow.
He is on a very predictable 6 minute timer, and if you hit him immediately after he pops, he will not have time to summon his pet.
In addition to the excellent faction, the experience is very good too. He doesn't drop much cash, but I did what I usually do and pulled out my fishing pole while meditating. The greengill salmon in the river sell for over 5 silver each, and I was pulling out five or six between each battle--very good money for level 8.
Faction, experience, and a little cash, what more could you ask for?
Another thing, us wizards get Tox Gate at level 20. This is where being loved by everyone in town really pays off. After a battle, you can teleport to Tox, walk to the Palace, sell your loot, visit the bank, resupply. Your mage needs gemstone spell components? Pick some up--for a few plat consideration. Then gate back to rejoin the group, unburdened and very much richer.

This guy (along with the Darkpaws and Rungupp) was among the first NPCs that I sought vengance against. He also made me the angriest. I was a lvl 5 Eurudite Wizzard just blundering about, trying to learn the terain of the forest when I saw this guy at a dock with a skelee near him. I did not know if he was a PC just hanging out or what. So, still keeping my distance I targeted his pet for con purposes. I may have taken a step or two closer, I cannot recall. The next thing I know, he says something like: "That was not a very wise thing to do." He then proceed to do his spell series and beat me silly. All I did was look at him the wrong way!
I killed him the first time when I was lvl 8 and had was lucky enought to show up before he could summon his pet. At lvl 10 I could solo him and his pet, but used all my manna to do it. I camped him at this point, but since I have a lot of mana (my int is 132), he does respawn and summon before I am ready to go, so I have to kill them both (darn...).

A little clarification to what was said about getting faction with all good Eudite factions:
Once when I was going out to seek vengance on this guy (see my other post here). I found a lvl 50-some-odd guy camping him for faction. He gave me all of the bones that he had collectected so far (26 to be exact). I turned them in. I am now ally with the Mages, and the High Council, but I was either indiferent or amiable with all others. The point I am trying to make is, turning in the bones only raises those two factions. Further the Peacekeepers (the clerics)faction is not raised by killing him and they are a good faction as well.

Why would you use Toxx ports to go back to town? they put you farther away then just walking back up to Erudin, although I understand your idea. Once you and your group kills this guy enough times, your prices at the vendors inside Erudin Palace (which seem to be on same faction as others in palace) will be great.

Ps. As a necro, I am not welcome in erudin. The great thing is that I can kill this guy 20 times or so to make that no longer true, then I can go kill kobalds to fix my Heretic faction once again.

i think Thracken was thinking the particular post above mentioneing camping Elial, then Toxx Gating to Erudin. makes no sense in that scenario, but i think Anonymous switched gears without indicating it. he switched from talking about Elial in Toxx to talking about having the good faction to visit Erudin after Tp from anywhere else.

He does give good faction, and his spawn rate is on the 6 minute timer. My lvl 18 wizard could take him with one spell, and after 10 kills, i went from indifferent to amiable with gate callers and could do the ice goblin quest with the erudite wizards.

This guy isn't the ONLY way to gain faction. Killing Heretic Prophets will also raise DW Knight faction, but they are fairly rare.
