This quest results in the Medallion of the Obulus, which is one of three medallions needed for the Rune of Scale Quest to get into Veeshan's Peak. Slixin Klex is located at -681.59, -1120.76, -559.74. He is a level 50 skeleton and is indifferent to both good and evil races. Ask him "what burning of the land?". Slixin Klex says 'Fiery death from the sky. Rock and fire burning our lands. Death and destruction splintering our tribe. Once strong we were but the fiery rocks from the sky crushed our proud cities and weakened our tribe." Ask him "what tribe" and Slixin Klex says "Obulus was our peoples. The hills and trees were our lands. We tamed the dark and wilds and bent the forests to our needs. But all is gone, all our peoples, all our works, even the medallion that was the symbol of our power. Ask him "what medallion" and Slixin Klex says 'Medallion of the Obulus. Symbol of our proud peoples. Broken into pieces long lost to the dark forests now. I know where they are now but I am no longer flesh. If I were I would find them to bring them back together." Ask him "what pieces?" and Slixin Klex says 'Hhhhh. Three pieces there are. One sits in the hands of Sselot though he knows its purpose not. Another sits upon an iksar ghost in Trakanons. The last is held by a long rotted iksar skeleton in the Dreadlands. Bring them all here and I may be able to unite them again. Perhaps this will even free me from my torment´┐Ż or not. Remember that there are three separate medallions in the game, each broken into three peices that just say a piece of broken medallion when you find it. You need to identify the piece of medallion you find to determine which one it is.

These are the locations:

(1) Middle Portion: Drops off a rotting skeleton at approximately loc 2250, -5140 in the Dreadlands (7 minute static spawn);

(2) Bottom Portion: Dropped by the Pained Soul in Trakanon's Teeth, Near the entrance to Old Sebilis;

(3) Upper Portion: Given to you by Ssolet Dnaas, who spawns in the island in Warsliks Woods. You must do the Burnished Wooden Staff quest to get it.

Here is the dialog when handing in all 3 pieces.

Slixin Klex says 'Ssssss. I thought I would never see these. I never thought the symbol of our people would be made whole again. I feel no rest for my sssoul though. My torment still flows as freely as when my peoples first suffered fiery death. I need this not. It is useless to me. Here, you take it. Maybe you can find some good to do with it.'

- The Middle Portion PH mob timer is 5 min 20 sec, and the PHs are KOS skeletons; plaguebones, or greater plaguebones. The named mob is indifferent, so it won't attack when it spawns.
- The Bottom Portion named is indifferent too, so you can park next to the spawn spot and check every now and thn if the mob has spawned, respawn rate was similar to the Dreadlands skelly. Fyi: Several roamers walk thru the camp spot.
- Upper Portion: Check /baz if someone is selling the quest piece, I was lucky, got it for 350pp :) Ssolet Dnaas is NOT perma-rooted, I charmed him with Puppet Strings and he went from KOS to amiable and started following me around. After that you can do the hand in without any dialog and the item goes into your inventory.

6 hours and 50+ spawns for skelly
# Mar 31 2008 at 2:27 PM Rating: Decent
Been at rotting skelly for over 6 hours and 50+ spawns at PH location +2250, -5150, 302

Petitioned it, says was last looted on 25th March 2008 so it MUST be working then.
Nothing back from /bug yet

For something thats not particularly important or hard to kill i cant understand why the wait is so long.

Pull up a chair,
Throw a log on the fire
Cuz your going to be in for a long wait

Pained Soul popped in about 3 hrs at spot marked on latest maps from mapfiend.

Rotting Skellie popped after about 12 place holders, loc +2250 / -5150 (or so)

Staff turn in was easy, i shrouded to Goblin rogue level 65, got SoE buff, used sneak/hide to invis up to Ssolet, hailed and did turn in, then gated to pok with spirit sending AA.

Total time spend in this 1/4 of VP mob trigger was 5 hrs including turn in to Burning Wood.

Got him to spawn last night. The PH wasn't popping every 7 minutes so I reported it as a bug. Guess they must have fixed it cause he spawned after 3 hours of camping.

Good luck !

I did this quest with my druid first, and now doing it for my monk.

For my druid, it took 96 spawns before the Pained Soul showed up, and on my monk it showed up on the 60th spawn.

Verix i didnt get a count off on my druid but were there around 5 hours. On my monk i got Veriz on the 17th spawn.

So prepare for long camps for this key piece.

For me, an hour and 20 minute camp. Rotting was another hour, again, not that bad of a camp. Friend has a burnished stave in bank, so, done with another medallion. Ssolet does see invis, not sure if sneak would work. I had to pay a enchanter to charm him, turn in worked.

Spawn Time on Rotting

While it is entirely possible that the spawn time may vary, I have timed the last 15 spawns and all have been 6:30. I time it by conning the corpse of the last dead PH. The corpses expire in 8 minutes so at 1 min and 45 seconds, I stand up and go down to loot. The mob spawns usually while I am looting.

I did 7pm-4am, and then 11am-12pm, roughly. Read a book, then you won't care if the spawn time is precisely 6:30, 7:30 or 2 seconds either way!

I had the first pop at around 10:40ish, but didn't have poison ready (I thought I was about to be KSed so waded in fast to get first aggro - sigh), and ID failed 4 times in a row, so even with a discipline he wiped me out (58 rogue with armor geared towards damage output not skin-saving). A Giant decided to wander through the camp and cleared the skel while I was headed back to my corpse. *grumble* (Totally unbuffed, I had around 1850hp, not much! It was down to 40% when I died.)

Camped til 4am killing every placeholder, no pop. Came back in the morning, got him within the hour, was dead easy to kill with the help of a 51 necro friend (who could probably have done it in her sleep).

I saw two random mobs walk through the PH spawn point during this time, so DO be a little careful (one Drolvarg Snarler, and one Random green Giant).

The PHs are easy kills, the less common Greater Plaguebone PH is a bit tougher, but if they're green, you can fear or root etc or are an anti-undead class it'll be a breeze. (The Rotting Skel was DB at 58 and at 51.)

Yes, the quest is a lot of work, but note its a quest for an item that is part of ANOTHER quest... This item is part of the VP key quest, or so they say...
Ssolet Dnaas
# Jun 07 2002 at 4:35 AM Rating: Default
what is the /loc of Ssolet Dnaas in WW? "The island" isnt very specific - went there today to the only island on EQ Atlas - no Ssolet. Island I went to was in NE corner... is this the right one?
RE: Ssolet Dnaas
# Jun 24 2002 at 8:48 AM Rating: Default
The island is a tiny clump of rock at the end of the river running in front of gobbie fort in WW. Its about big enuf fr him to stand on, hope this helps.

Take an enchanter as most con KoS to him unless u are an iksar (I believe iksar).

A side note I got pained soul in 3 pops, not doing so well with skellie in DL.
#Anonymous, Posted: May 18 2002 at 3:41 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I just wanna say HAHAHA i got the soul after 2 spawns , and the skelly was up when i went there ^_^

Just timed the last 4 spawns of the Pained Soul/PH and it is 7.5 minutes.

Gah I hate this friggin Pained Soul Camp. So far, camped him for 36-37 hours, including a 26 hour marathon and havent seen him once. If you got this in 6 hours or less, I hate you 8b
Just a warning though, this doesn't always pop as soon as people say it does.

Is there a way to "IDENTIFY" the individual pieces of the medallions once you have them?

best way would be to buy a silvery mask which has the clicky effect identify.

Any caster can identify for you, you hold item on mouse while they cast, text will pop up letting you know exactly what you have.

Yes... the spell Identify will tell you if you have the top, middle or bottom portion of which medallion.
