Weligon Steelherder is located at -1040, -380 in Erudin. Requires amiable faction with Deepwater Knights.

You say, 'Hail, Weligon Steelherder'

Weligon Steelherder says 'Hail, ______! This is the Deepwater Temple. Here you shall find the wisdom and courage of Prexus, the Ocean Lord. I am glad to see you have an interest. Forgive me if I cut our conversation short, but I have many [Deepwater tasks] to complete.'

You say, 'What Deepwater tasks?'

Weligon Steelherder says 'We here at the Deepwater Temple must tend to the [Peacekeeper battlestaff] and the [Deepwater harpoon] as well as other duties such as [ocean protection]. There is always something we must do.'

You say, 'What Deepwater harpoon?'

Weligon Steelherder says 'We do not award the Deepwater harpoon to just any paladin. Nobility is all well and good, but you must still prove yourself. We have heard rumors of a very distressing matter. Perhaps it is your calling. Are you ready to [prove allegiance to Erudin] and earn the Deepwater harpoon?'

You say, 'I am ready to prove allegiance to Erudin.'

Weligon Steelherder says 'Yes, you are ready. We have heard rumors of a great bridge which will connect Antonica with Odus!! This must not happen! We must shield ourselves from the savage and evil ways of the other races. They say that a list exists. A list of three grand architects who wish to see this bridge erected. You will venture to Qeynos and find the list, then exterminate these three men. Return the list along with their heads and the Deepwater Harpoon is yours. Go!!'

Hansl Bigroon is located at +355, -465 in South Qeynos.

You say, 'Hail, Hansl Bigroon'

Hansl Bigroon says 'Greetings, ______! Are you a [citizen of Qeynos] or are you a [traveler of sorts]?'

You say, 'I am a traveler of sorts.'

Hansl Bigroon says 'Ah, yes! Traveling can be truly dangerous. Have you ever been to Erudin or do you not care for that place?'

You say, 'I have been to Erudin.'

Hansl Bigroon says 'The trip to Erudin takes far too long. I have been designing a [titanic bridge] which will shorten the trip. Well, I cannot take full credit, most of the plans are being designed by [three great engineers].'

You say, 'Who are the three great engineers?'

Hansl Bigroon says, 'They are some of the finest engineers in all of Norrath. Young, they may be, but as smart as the wisest architects I have ever met. That reminds me.. I must have a list of the engineers somewhere.. Where is it?'

You say, 'Where is the list of engineers?'

Hansl Bigroon says, 'Do not concern yourself with the list. It is of no concern to you. I do not even have it. It is tucked away safely at home.'

You say, 'What titanic bridge?'

Hansl Bigroon says 'My grand plan has always been to erect a bridge which would span the distance between Qeynos and Odus. It would bypass the city of Erudin. Antonius Bayle would take full control of the bridge and its adjacent territories. This has had some opposition in Erudin, but for the most part, they just believe it is impossible to build such a bridge.'

Hansl Bigroon walks to location +275, -350 and drops "A Sealed List" (identifies as "List Of Engineers") on the ground. You may need to be quick in picking this up, otherwise he may take it back.

Purchin Oddsbot is located at +135, -320 in the Highpass Keep jail area. Attack him


Purchin Oddsbot says 'That was not a very intelligent thing to do.'
You have slain Purchin Oddsbot!
Your faction standing with Arcane Scientists got worse.
Your faction standing with Knights of Truth got worse.
Your faction standing with Opal Dark Briar got better.
Your faction standing with The Freeport Militia got better.

Loot the Human Decapitated Head from his corpse.

Jogl Doobraugh is located at +110, -850 in Steamfont Mountains.

You say, 'Hail, Jogl Doobraugh'

Jogl Doobraugh says 'Hellooo!! My name is Jogl, master engineer with the Eldritch Collective. And this here is Charlotte. Pay no mind to her, she won't bite unless you attack me.'

Charlotte Beep.. Beep.. Beep..

Auto attack is on.
Jogl Doobraugh says 'The power of the Eldritch Collective shall put an end to your vile life.'
You have slain Jogl Doobraugh!
Your faction standing with Eldritch Collective got worse.
Your faction standing with Dark Reflection got better.
Your faction standing with The Dead got better.
Your faction standing with Gem Choppers got worse.
Your faction standing with King AkAnon got worse.

Loot the Gnome Decapitated Head from his corpse.

Charlotte does not assist.

Trantor Everhot is located at +400, -150 in Everhot Forge in North Kaladim.


You say, 'Hail, Trantor Everhot'

Trantor Everhot says 'Yes, yes!! I am a very busy man. I've got blueprints to work on, [dwarven wire] to perfect and formulae to calculate. In between those tasks, I have to find time to head down to Irontoe's and down a few Tumpy Tonics.'

You have slain Trantor Everhot!
Your faction standing with Storm Guard got worse.
Your faction standing with Kazon Stormhammer got worse.
Your faction standing with Miners Guild 249 got worse.
Your faction standing with Merchants of Kaladim got worse.
Your faction standing with Craknek Warriors got better.

Loot the Dwarf Decapitated Head from his corpse.

Hand Weligon Steelherder the sealed letter, Human Decapitated Head, Gnome Decapitated Head, and Dwarf Decapitated Head.

Weligon Steelherder says 'I called for the list of engineers and all three of their heads!'
Weligon Steelherder says 'I called for the list of engineers and all three of their heads!'
Weligon Steelherder says 'I called for the list of engineers and all three of their heads!'
Weligon Steelherder says 'It is done!! I pray to Prexus that the knowledge of the bridge's design has departed from this world with the passing of these intelligent men. A pity they had to die. As for you, the other states may not tolerate your presence any longer, but you have proven that allegiance to Erudin is paramount among all Erudites. I am afraid the [harpoon is no more]!! I bestow upon you Deep Six, my personal cutlass!! May you wield it in the name of Erudin.'

Your faction standing with Deepwater Knights got better. (+25)
Your faction standing with High Council of Erudin got better. (+3)
Your faction standing with Heretics got worse. (-3)
You gain experience!!

Tiam Khonsir says 'Well, Weligon Steelherder, that is unfortunate. Quite a pity, indeed.'

You say, 'Why is the harpoon no more?'

Weligon Steelherder says 'The Deepwater harpoon's distribution has been restricted by order of the High Council. The last one awarded was to an outsider, the brave and noble paladin, Sentry Xyrin. She hailed from the Temple of Marr.'

You receive the Deep Six Cutlass.

Hansl Bigroon does drop the list when he enters his house, but now he picks it back up and complains about trash players are leaving in the city, and he'll do it in less than a second.

He drops the list instantly upon entering his house to his designated spot, then 5/10 minutes after he does it again while standing there. You have to stand behind him and stare between his feet with your cursor and just... stare. You have maybe half a second of response time to grab it before he does.

Considering the fact that the Deep Six Cutlass is tradeable, it might be better to try to find someone selling one than to take all those negative faction hits yourself or create a mule to do the quest then hand off the cutlass to your main after.

Hansl Bigroon. You need patience in this part, or at least I did. After completing the dialogue part, he starts walking after 20-30 minutes. He walks to his house, which someone mentioned in an earlier post. From there, he does drop the list...from the time the dialogue was completed until the time he dropped the list for me = 47 minutes.

Also, this was figured out after my second attempt. The first time he was already in his house, so I completed the dialogue there. After some time, he dropped the list for a split second and then scooped it back up and complained about people littering lol. Then, he walked back to his original spot by the bank. It appears that he needs to be in his original spot in order for you to obtain the dropped list.

Here is some missed dialogue from Hansl:

You say, 'Who are the three great engineers?'

Hansl Bigroon says, 'They are some of the finest engineers in all of Norrath. Young, they may be, but as smart as the wisest architects I have ever met. That reminds me.. I must have a list of the engineers somewhere.. Where is it?'

You say, 'Where is the list of engineers?'

Hansl Bigroon says, 'Do not concern yourself with the list. It is of no concern to you. I do not even have it. It is tucked away safely at home.'

I don't know if asking for the list makes him not drop it, so I would just stick to ending the dialogue after you say 'What titanic bridge?'

I would say you probably need a decent if not maxed Erudite language skill.. other than that there's no reason not to be able to do it other than it being broken.

There is in fact a Deepwater Harpoon, but it is not the result of this quest. It is the result of a quest entitled "Sentry Xyrinn". "The Bridge" quest yields the Deep Six Cutlass I know for a fact because I just finished it a few days ago. It was actually pretty fun offing NPC's, but now I will need to work on my factions a bit. I also had a little help from friends, so that's always a bonus too. The Cutlass looks like a scimitar when held, and the Harpoon looks like a halberd. Oh yeah, watch out when attacking Jogl Doobraugh. He is accompanied by a mechanical spider named Charlotte. She will attach you as soon as you start attacking Jogl. I'm not sure if she's his pet or what not, but be forwarned. All in all, I had a lot of fun doing this quest. I don't really use the Cutlass. It is way too heavy for my tastes. I actually wanted it for my trophy case. Thanks goes out to all that helped me, especially Aranoth, Niad, and Quahadai. You guys are the greatest! HUGS

I just talked with Weligon Steelherder last night with my Erudite Paladin (follows Prexus) and he mentioned something about a Deepwater harpoon. I followed the quest line, and it took me to this bridge quest.

Has this quest been modified perhaps? Or is the "harpoon" in fact the cutlass? Kinda odd.

I'm not in a possition to find out myself yet, as my paladin is only level 2. Smiley: tongue

I just completed this quest a few days ago, and discovered you don't take a huge faction hit in Kaladim or Ak'Anon. I found Purchin Oddsbott in HHK in what looked like a torture chamber. I am now KOS in the FP casters guild (Academy of Arcane Science) but I was also sitting there offing the guards out front for awhile before I killed Purchin. I went from dubious to scowls in my combined faction work in Freeport. Also, since I'm not a Paladin, I have a Deep Six Cutlass I don't want. Send me a /tell if you do.

After reading the entire thread on this quest, I must say that it has been the least informative one I have ever read. Has anyone actually DONE this quest? If so, this is my question -- what magnitude of faction loss/gain are we talking about? I need to gain Opal Dark Briar faction in order to get down to the Qeynos Catacombs and talk to a mob in the SK guild for part of my epic. I also royally screwed up this faction by campin Pyzjn for a few weeks and doing 4 Qeynos Badge of Honor quests. I'm willing to try anything, even murder citizens of good cities, so -- if anyone has done this quest, please respond. Please, no commentary on racial supremacy, good/evil, religion, short people uniting, etc. Just realize that even good races/classes will need to build faction (even evil faction) for different reasons.

This is why you either make a mule for quests that result in tradeable items or else just save up the plat to buy them rather than mess up your factions because some factions are impossible to get back once you lose them.

Ok...fine...the only thing that separates good and evil is different points of views. The Eruds want you to kill people they see as evil...let them. Aside from that fact, this quest shows something disturbing. Is it just me, or do the Eruds sounds like *****?! "Lesser races" ? That sounds like a **** concept to me. If not for the good of bringing peace to all we should all unite together to wipe this neo-**** scourge from the face of Norrath.

All races concider most of the other races lesser look how the "lesser" evil races (gnoll, koball, minutar, orcs, ect) are treated. As a point of information my friends wood elf druid was indiferent to the gnolls. So dont concider a race as **** unless you wish to look at how the other races concider each other (the Iskar dont think to highly of other races either *grin*) The **** called people of there own race lesser. Rememer in this world the three human races are different like the three elven races are.

This quest lowers faction with much of the good factions and betters the faction with important evil faction. And that should be a paladin quest?????????? Paladins are (normally) holy men who hated the evil. Maybe they mean a shadowknight.

For a paladin of Prexus, this is probably a good quest from an RP standpoint. If memory serves, contrary to popular belief, Prexus is a NEUTRAL deity, not a good one.

Since Erudites in general distain the "lesser races," building a bridge between the two continents would be unthinkable, and something that would have to be stopped at all costs, and they wouldn't much care what anyone else thought about it. (In other words, "faction be damned.")

Paladins to Quellious however, would see things a bit differently. While they probably still wouldn't be all that keen on the idea, the Tranquil still stands primarily for peace, and killing folks just because they desire to bring races together is a very un-peaceful thing to do.

Followers of Quellious are optimists. Do it right, or not at all.

Followers of Prexus are pragmatists. The ends justify the means... within some semblance of reason.

If you want to make the argument that paladins are paragons of all that is right and just, then Prexus shouldn't HAVE "paladins." The holy warriors of neutral gods should have been called something else. But that's not the way EQ was put together, so in this case, a paladin WOULD do something that most of the rest of the world would consider "evil".

I agree wholeheartedly. We ought to do away with the ship and breed sharks to keep out the unworthy. Or maybe forget the sharks and just abolish the ship. It's funny that at level 18 I swim faster than it.
Aside from that, though, if anyone wanted to take me over to Faydwer and kill these fellows for me and let me loot them, I'd be eternally grateful. My current weapon is a (sigh) regular long sword. Yes, you heard me. It's only for 2 good reasons. A) I am poor, and B) I got poor by being overcharged for items, because I have no sense of context for price. If any other Erudite paladins on Tallon Zek wanted to chat, or even, I don't kow, EXIST, send me a tell. It gets lonely surrounded by int-based casters.

Yep, this sword is heavy, no doubt about it for 1hs. BUT, it gives the +5 str which helps offset the weight a little bit, in effect making it a 7pound weapon. Plus, that is 5 more points for attack, which means you will hit better. Klani (my pally), with various equipment is up to 125 or 116 str, depending on if she uses the Cracked Darkwood Shield or not. Another 5 str on an Erudite pally goes a LOOOOONG way.
Those three charges of enduring breath could be a life saver if say, you are doing a raid or just a group in kedge keep and the person in your group who can cast the spell is oom or out of fish scales and your icon is starting to blink.
Yes, Ghoulbane is lighter and has similar damage/delay ratio. BUT, it only procs against undead, which is useless against anything living (obviously). So, unless I get lucky enough to get a Sporalli Defender, I would love to have this sword, if only for the 5str bonus. Face it, there are not a lot of 14-15 damage 1hs weapons out there, and hopefully, you will be with someone who can haste you no matter what weapon you use.
As for a bridge to odus, course we don't want everyone and their brother traipsing on over whenever they want to. Bad enough we get smelly barbarians running thru when they get lost on the boat and don't know where they are going, stinking up the place, drinking, passing out all over the island. Personally, being a follower of Prexus, i think we should get rid of the stinking boat and make everyone SWIM to Odus if they want to come bad enough. Cut out some of the riff-raff.

It's part of the paladin spell 'Divine Might' quest. You can't do the quest until you're level 49 so it's worthless until you're nearly there (just uses up a slot in the bank).
The spell gives you a random 60dd proc on any melee attack... use alongside a proc'ing weapon with 140+ dex and watch that damage multiply :)
anyone thinking about doing this!

Dude, why would someone want this item JUST for the enduring breath? that's a smart thing to do..hey, im gonna become Dubious to dwarves, humans, and gnomes for 3 charges of enuring breath! this is an OK weapon...the +5 str is good too. But the wgt..12.5 for 1hs! that is just halarious! you can go kill a greenie and just watch your stamina go down...poor paladins!
overall, its a nice quest, 14 36 1HS!!!
just...be careful with the faction hits..

I found Purchin Oddsbot in Highkeep. I'd heard he was often found there and he was there the very first time I looked. Go downstairs near the bank but head back into the jail area past the jail clerk. He was in a small cell way in the back. There were several other NPCs around, one of them - a dark elf - agro'd when i fought Purchin. As a level 44 paladin I couldnt take the two of them together by myself and had to zone out. I returned with a level 44 Druid and we easily collected Purchin's head.

Why would a Paladin, and a Druid, want to lower their factions to get this item. Why would they want to raise faction with the Dark Elf Necromancers and Shadowknights? Why? Why? Why?

Oh and by the way the druid only helped with this one kill and so only took the factions for that kill not that entire list up there. She knew what faction hits she would take and had the option of zoning before the kill but didnt care.

These factions are all fairly meaningless to Druids, and the Paladin is only really worried about Knights of Truth in the down list here. Knights of Truth faction is very easy to raise. If you are a dwarf lover those factions are easily raised and if you started in Faydwer you probably have already killed enough orcs to be allied with stormguard. Of course its the holy sword at the end the paladin wants and IMHO the faction hits are well worth it.

Great this is the only way for me to raise my faction with the necromancers. That really sucks this is the only quest to raise faction with darkreflectio unless I get another account and make about 8 necros at a time and consent them after they die and loot there corpse for the level 1 quest which is not much faction but still that sucks no other good quests not even small cheap worthless quests that suck to improve faction. Dang it I will never be liked by Necromancers, hehe not much difference just I don't want to be Kos in any zone, I am not even Kos in Ogguk, Not in wolf form even.

# May 02 2001 at 9:06 AM Rating: Default
Some mobs will always be KOS to you, whatever dumb quest you can make. Even Veeshan followers (bards can be) that never killed any gob in Everfrost are KOSed by Lady Vox.
Plus, the newbie quest-message is no-drop. And when you give consent to someone, it does not give him any right to loot from your corpse.

To summerize everything : Stop your dreaming.
This game is meant to make your life hard, painfull, with long downtime. And we all like it. :)

This quest has to be THE most ***-backwards one of the lot that EQ has developed...look at the factions lowered! Look at the factions raised! A paladin is NOT supposed to have increased faction with THE DEAD! It obvious that Verant mixed up the classes on this one...the class this quest should be for is a shadowknight, but the story behind the whole thing makes minimal sense. I just don't see ANY paladin going through with what this quest asks for. A true knight would never kill over such trivial things such as a bridge that would connect Odus and Antonica.

How absurd can you get?!?!

OK, from a role-playing point of view, I understand WHY they would put this quest in. IF I were an erudite paladin (THE worst race for the class), I WOULD go through with it, eventually. But I'm a dwarven paladin, and I wouldn't want the faction hits from this quest, I'm rather worldly and would like to wander without fear of the reprecussions from this quest.

Bottom line, I'd love to have this weapon, I just don't want to take the faction hits.

Don't belive what you read above. Some of these factions hits are only one point, big deal, it dosn't do much.

The worst faction result from doing is this quest, is you can't trade at the casters guild in West FP. All other factions don't matter for a Paladin.

your smoking something! the only factions that a paladin has to worry about are the knights of truth and the kaladim ones, the others don't worry about. there is no real reason for us paladins to do this quest cuase it only hurts us in the long run.

Jogl is also an important part of a Ak'Anon newbie quest (Bootstrutters Backpack). An honorable paladin will stick her head in Ak'Anon and mention she must kill Jogl, then say the same in Steamfont to allow the people who are doing the quest to get the box to him.
