After you complete the last quest for your Cudgel of the Channeler (and many congrats by the way you are an elite Iksar Shaman by now) you speak to Hierophant Dexl, the other Hierophant. This is the conversation.

You say, 'Hail Hierophant Dexl'

Hierophant Dexl seems to be preocupied. He is examining an egg. 'What?!! Who has [sent] you to me? Bah!! Away with you.' He ignores you and continues chanting.

You say, 'Di Nozok sent me'

Hierophant Dexl drops the egg he was holding. Egg yolk splatters on your foot. His eyes roll back into his head. He speaks, but his voice is that of a female. 'I await you, Cradossk . My sisters and I yearn for the return of our skulls. We are the [Sisters of Scale]. Find us and bring to this hierophant our skulls and your iron cudgel of the Channeler. Go.'

You say, 'Who are the Sisters of Scale'

Hierophant Dexl wipes egg yolk from his clothing. 'My, what a mess!! Hmmph!! What did you say? Sisters of Scale? They were a legendary trio of mystics. We once had their skulls sealed within this temple, but now they are lost. I sent a channeler to retrieve them. His name was Vagnar. I am sure he shall find them.'

You say, 'who is vagnar'

Hierophant Dexl says 'He's a capable channeler, I trust he knows where to look and will prepare himself. Any competent servant of our Lord would prepare potions and supplies before going on such a quest. If he doesn't come back, it's no great loss, he wasn't Hierophant material anyway.'

This is as far as Dexl goes. The next set of clues was found on the Herb Vendor Island in West Cabilis. The dialogue goes like this.

You say, 'Who what where is Vagnar'

Jaxxtz says 'Vagnar? I don't recall.....Unless Vagnar was that shaman supposedly on some quest to save our entire race from total destruction..someone always on one of those. He bought some charms to ward of [Dragon kin]. He's most likely in the belly of some beast now.'

You say, 'What Dragon kin'

Jaxxtz says 'Yes he said he needed to steal secrets from the hated Sarnaks to aid him in his true quest. He said the sarnak know ways to cleanse the mind from intrusion, he would say no more.'

There is an Alchemy potion recipe that drops off Sarnak Adherants in the Sarnak Fort in Ill Omen. This ties directly into the text given by Jaxxtz the herb merchant. The recipe is written in Lizardman and when read shows this:

Xinth
From Opal Slush and Dristilate shall come Xinth. From Sarnak Nightdust, Gorge Moss, and Sponge Mushroom shall come Opal Slush. From Firiona Drixie Dust, Stoneleer Emerald plume, and Slate Chant Rock shall come Dristilate.

OPAL SLUSH - OBTAINED
1. Sarnak Nightdust - Sarnak Partisans in Frontier Mountains
2. Gorge Moss - Foraged in Gorge of King Xorbb
3. Sponge Mushroom - Foraged in Mines of Nurga

DRISTILATE
1. Firiona Drixie Dust - From Drixies in Firona
2. Stoneleer Emerald Plume - Found on Cockatrices in Overthere
3. Slate Chant Rock - Found on Goblin Rockchanters in Nurga. Tan in Color.

Once made the potions will be called "A Potion of Swirling Liquid." It is not a drinkable potion, only a potion in name. It is trivial to make with alchemy at around 40.

At this point you will need to head into the Crypt of Dalnir. On the second floor there is a spawn called the Coerced Channeler. He mumbles to himself and if killed screams about a river of Xinth. Give the Coerced Channeler the Potion of Xinth. He despawns and is replaced by our Friend Vagnar the Channeler. Vagnar gives you the first of the skulls of the sisters of scale and immediately becomes KOS and runs off screaming "Go to where the pines have been smashed. Must reach great heights!"

If you go to the Burning Woods outside the Sarnak Fort/Chardok there you will see 2 guard towers. The top of the East Guard Tower is reachable. You must go back 150 feet from the gate on the zone wall. There is a spot there where you can climb high enough to be above the roof of the guard tower. Fire up levitate and scale of the wolf. Then run straight at the tower, preferably in windowed mode. You should run right in. Inside you will meet an NPC named Atheling Plague.

He tells you,' Ahh!! A conversationalist. How good to meet you, Cradossk. Yes. I have heard of you. Go ahead and ask for that which has brought you to my tower and emboldened you to slay my weaker minions.'

Say to him "Give me the skull of the sisters of scale"

He replies, "'What a coincidence! I, too, seek a skull. Perhaps you might help me [obtain the skull]. Perhaps then you shall have the skull you desire.'

You say, 'I will help you obtain the skull'

Atheling Plague says 'I am sure you would not mind removing the head of a scaled mystic. I hope not. There is an old Iksar who once called me slave. Now he shall adorn my wall, mounted on a fine plaque. His name is Digalis. Find him. Do not return until your task is complete.'

You are looking for an iksar slave. It is found in Frontier Mountains in the Goblin Tunnels in the SW of the map. He is found in the lowest and most southern room. Within this room there are Iksar spawns, facing the wall from the tunnel: on the right is either "an Iksar slave" for the Monk Shackle Quest (hail him and you'll have mention of one of the shackles looking strange) and "a Crazed Iksar slave"; on the left is either "an enslaved Iksar" or "an Iksar slave"--this is the one you want! . His face is covered
with grime and he shows scars from goblin whips. He shakes his head and goes back to his thoughts. If you ask him his name he tells you he is Digalis. This is a weird part of the quest in that you must kill him here to get your skull. You do take negative faction with Scaled Mystics which doesn't make a lot of sense. He's an easy enough kill.

Return to Atheling and hand him in your skull of Digalis. It shows as Iksar Skull LORE NO DROP. After handing it in you get this:

Atheling Plague tosses the skull over the edge of the tower. 'Excellent. You show signs of a true Iksar slayer. Too, bad I have already given the skull of the Sister of Scale to another. Perhaps you would like to meet him before he departs. Say hello, Doval.'

Atheling then spawns Clerk Doval who resides in Cabilis. Doval is a Traitor and friend of the Sarnaks it seems. You get time to get a pet out and prepare to do battle. He is no particularily tough but he is healed by Atheling. Atheling doesn't join in the fight though. Upon death he causes these faction changes:

Clerk Doval says, "I will slay all in the name of Overking Bethezid! He shall deliver power to me."
Clerk Doval has been slain by Greenmist.

Your faction standing with Sarnak Collective has been adjusted by -30.
Your faction standing with Legion of Cabilis has been adjusted by 1.
Your faction standing with Brood of Di`Zok has been adjusted by -30.

Clerk Doval's corpse says "All Iksar residents... shall learn... of my demise. Ungghh!'

Loot the 2nd skull from his corpse.

The 3rd skull info was discovered before the 2nd one was completed, it is probable that asking about Clerk Doval could produce results leading to Klok Poklon. By asking Klok Poklon, in the "Upstairs Bar" near the shaman guild, "Who are the Sisters of Scale"...

He responded "Hmm, yes, the Babble around here is that one of the Kloks in the Lake Garrison has one of the Sisters of Scale Skull up for Auction. The Temple will bury him when they hear of it!"

Asking around the vendors in Lake of Ill Omen yielded this:

Klok Sargin says 'Looking for the skull I had for sale? I am afraid I sold it to a staunch lizard champion. I would gladly give you his name if you
would do me a [slight favor].'

You say, 'what slight favor'

Klok Sargin says 'The lake garrison has requested that I work on a helm similar to the ones worn by sarnak dragoons. The problem is.. I need one to examine. You go get me one and I will tell you who purchased the skull.'

The Helm is dropped by Sarnak Dragoons in the Sarnak Fort in Lake of Ill Omen. The Helm is TEMPORARY so run straight back to the garrison and Klok Sargin. Hand him the Helm and you get this:

Klok Sargin appears a little shaken. He has a few bruises on his face. 'Uhh. Thanks. I sort of told the lizard who bought the skull that you were asking for him, and, well, he was kinda mad, and... Cradossk, meet Bruiser.'

He spawns an Iksar Warrior named Bruiser who says this:

Bruiser Noz is a battle-scarred lizard with arms the size of tree trunks. He approaches and speaks. You feel the lager-tinged breeze blast your skin. 'Stay out of this, Klok !! I didn't spend 30 seasons in the legion to be pestered by the likes of you!! Here I am, you little croak!! You want my skull? Come and get it!!'

Klok Sargin shakes with fear. A dark stain begins to spread across the front of his trousers. 'Ye.. Ye.. Yes.. Yes, Bruiser.'

Bruiser Noz says 'Ha!! Who dares to take what is Bruiser's!! I will make swamp mush out of them!!'

Bruiser gives you time to get a pet out etc. He's an easy kill at lvl 51 I'd say he's at most lvl 38 probably less. Kill him and you loot the 3rd Skull. Take this skull with your 2 other ones and the Cudgel of the Channeler back to Cabilis and down to Hierophant Dexl. Hand all 4 to him and you get this message:

Hierophant Dexl goes into a trance and speaks with the voice of an ancient. 'You have returned the skulls of the Sisters of Scale. For this you shall be rewarded. Take this hierophant's weapon. May you use it to smite the foes of our people.' Dexl comes out of the trance. 'What?!! Whew. Hey!! Where is my cudgel?'

You now have the cudgel.

TLP "an Iksar Slave" location update.

Lots of confusion over the location and the method of finding "an Iksar slave". The information above is incorrect: "an Iksar slave" is found in Frontier Mountains in the Goblin Tunnels in the SW of the map. He is found in the lowest and most southern room. Within this room there are Iksar spawns, facing the wall from the tunnel: on the right is either "an Iksar slave" for the Monk Shackle Quest (hail him and you'll have mention of one of the shackles looking strange) and "a Crazed Iksar slave"; on the left is either "an enslaved Iksar" or "an Iksar slave"--this is the one you want!

Important note: killing "an enslaved Iksar" results in -50 faction with Residence of Cabilis and -12 to Legion of Cab. Trick is to be invisible, set pet onto him, and then call pet back so he's off the wall (failing to do so he'll run through the wall and vanish and will return back shortly after). If you kill him while invisible, you will have no faction hit. Kill the PH until "an Iksar slave" spawns, drop him and receive the skull to take to the tower in BW.

Just wanted to clear up the info in the quest. I had done this years ago, but decided to run it on a new Shm(love the old quests).
Also want to point out, for whatever reason. If you use your pet to attack and kill Digalis in the caves in Frontier Mountains; your merc will not assist, but you will also not receive a faction hit killing him this way(yes, you still get loot rights; in case there was concern). I can't say for other classes or for the other iksar slave. Seems this may be scripted this way to allow shaman to do this quest without ruining faction so they can continue the cudgel quests.

(Meet Clerk Doval in East Cabilis.)

You say, 'Hail, Clerk Doval'

Clerk Doval takes a sip of lager and looks up at you. 'Ahh!! An adventurer of sorts? Looking for work, are we? If you have the time, I might have a bit of a [proposition] for you.'

You say, 'Who is the sisters of scale?'

Clerk Doval removes the stein from his lips. 'I have heard some babble of that. I know all [about the skulls] of those ancients.'

You say, 'What about the skulls?'

Clerk Doval says 'I heard the dragon called Trakanon swallowed them up and their skulls now lie within the belly of that vile beast. Of course, that could be just babble. One hundred gold coins may give you the tink.'

(Hand 100gp to Clerk Doval.)

Clerk Doval fills his purse with your gold. Each coin makes a tinkling sound. 'Music to my ears. Here. This may give you a hint.'

(You receive Mudcomb Muffin.
Klok Unlar in East Cabilis selling it.)

You say, 'Hail, Klok Unlar'

Klok Unlar wipes flour from his hands and turns to greet you. 'Welcome! Please look over my many treats. Do not think of the coin you shall spend. Heavy coin buys the finest and sweetest of treats. Feel free to ask me about any of the rare pies you see as I can tell you exactly how I make them.'

You say, 'What is mudcomb muffin?'

Klok Unlar says 'Mudcomb muffins are a rare treat indeed. Who would ever think such a sweet tasty morsel would require mudcombs from the giant wasps?'

(giant wasps living in Burning Woods in Kunark and Misty Thicket in Antonica, Greater Faydark and Lesser Faydark in Faydwer. But it story for Iksar. So you notice you need to go Burning Woods.)

After two attempts at the Atheling Plague / Clerk Doval part of this quest and finding A.P. on the ground near the east end of the wall inside the courtyard instead of up in the tower, but never managing to find Clerk Doval (I even made my way up into to the tower after getting the text from A.P. introducing C.D to me and not seeing him anywhere near), I decided to check the the Spirit Realm (http://crucible.samanna.net) and did a search for "atheling plague", which uncovered a patch message from 10/27/05 that includes this cryptic statement: "Atheling Plague has decided that heights aren't to his tastes, so he has left his tower."

I, of course, discovered this after filing a bug report complaining that A.P wasn't spawning in the tower. I also mentioned not being able to find C.D. anywhere, so hopefully it's not a completely wasted bug report.

Has anyone managed to complete this part of the quest since 10/27/05? If so, where did you find Clerk Doval?

Today I went to attempt the turn-in again, with a couple of friends to try to track down Clerk Doval, but Atheling Plague was not down at ground level.

So I went up to the tower and there he was, back in his old spot! I did the turn in, Doval spawned up in the tower, I killed him, and looted the skull.

I then attempted to kill Atheling for all the pain and suffering he caused me by not being where he was supposed to be before, but he resisted everything I threw at him and then punted me into the inner-most section of the room that has the zone in to Chardok.

There is nothing wrong with the helm. It is a TEMPORARY item (known as NO RENT back then). This means that it will vanish from your inventory 30 minutes after you log out or are disconnected.

Scroll down a bit it says to go up the cliff lev and run in not sure if an exact loc was given or not. Took me a long time to get in, finally what i had to do was use scale of wolf to have enough speed to make it in. Also looking straight up helps, just drive using the backspace map.

Has anyone tried this quest lately? Since new patches have been added? I only ask because I just got everything done for the 6th Cudgel today handed my 3 skulls and the 5th Cudgel only to have the Hierophant take them. Nothing in return. I was amiable to him and yet he didn't give me the cudgel. Is there a new portion to this quest that is not here?

New slave location: Frontier Mtns, goblin mine entrance at approx -1900, +2200. The skull needed for the 6th cudgel from Digialis drops here....in the very back cave here is where they moved the Iksar slaves from Droga. Named as "an enslaved iksar" and an "iksar slave". The enslaved iksar has a crapload of hp and none of my dots landed....ended up letting pet tank him...and he calls for help as you beat his ***... the other one, iksar slave dropped quickly. The quest iksar slave
Digalis, spawns after you kill these two. See post in quest for cudgel 5 about the new location of overseer Dlubish, he is now here too.

Reaching Atheling Plague
# Apr 03 2003 at 11:39 AM Rating: Decent
I have two computers. After failing to reach the top of the Sarnak tower several times, I switched computers. Same character, same buffs, same equipment. On the second computer I could reach the tower consistently. Just to make sure I tried again on the first computer, and as usual didn't make the top. I have not compared the options settings on the two computers to see what differences might be responsible for this. Bottom line though is that there does seem to be a bug somewhere that prevents at least some configurations from reaching the top of the tower.

I am trying to remember having just created the potions... I am almost positive that the Drixie Dust is droppable. I remember thinking that maybe I should have hit all the shops in hoping to find some, though for me the experience wasn't too bad. Only about 50 Drixies before getting dust and no failures on the combines with alchemy skill of 79. I consider myself one of the lucky ones =)

Luck on your quest!

Ok maybe im just asking a stupid question but i have failed to combine the drixie dust the emerald plume and the chant rock (dragon egg looking one) 4 times am getting tired of going to FV for hours on end to get dust does anyone have any idea what skill level your alchemy has to be at to get this part to combine. The sarnak dust, mushroom and gorge moss were simple and trivial at 21, but cant seem to get the other half to combine. Please reply if you have the info or send me tell in game please.

Some of the information above was wrong....
First of all, the sarnak nightdust doesnt drop in OT. After about 10hrs of camping the partisans in OT, I went to FM and camped them there got it on the 3rd partisan i killed. the 2 sarnak camps in FM are at neg270, pos1300 and pos2100, neg1450
Second, the slate chant rocks drop of the Stonechanters in Nurga
Good Luck!

I spent two hours yesterday trying to reach that dang tower in BW. Special thanks go to Spiritrend from Bertox for giving encouragement and advice on how to reach it.
For those who are still having problems, stand at loc pos 5552 neg 4246. Point yourself at the tower, give yourself Levitate and Spirit of Cheetah. (I don't think it can be done with Spirit of Scale, at least not by me!) Look up and run straight at the tower and you go right in. If you've any amount of lag at all, turn your clip plane down to 0 or near it. I didn't think I was having lag problems, but couldn't do it till I turned my cp down.
Pull out your pet and buff/med up before starting dialog with Atheling. Attack Doval as soon as he spawns (will be near the small stairs leading up to ledge of tower, behind you if you're facing Atheling) and kill him quickly. He was green at 53, very easy kill with e-bolt and pet. (I threw a frosty one in too just to kill him quicker, but I doubt it's needed). I saw Atheling casting while I was fighting, perhaps he was trying to heal Doval, I'm not sure as Doval went down fast enough for it not to matter.
Good Luck!

I too spent several hours trying to get to the top of that ****ing tower. My husband (iksar monk) made it fine the first time. Then came down and carried my gear for me. Im not sure how I finally got up there but I was completely naked cept for my no drop items that were in an EE bag, I weighed 8 stone using spirit of the cheetah.

I want to know why a monk can make it to the roof of that tower with no problems, when he is fully equipped and carrying all my equipment too.

Good luck to the rest of you trying this quest. Dont give up

No, I don't believe there's a special location for the Sarnak Dragoons. I had several particularly bad strokes of luck with this quest, and I ended up going through three of the helmets.

The first time, I went in to get the skull from the adherent so I could go to Dalnir for the turnin. The adherent was three or four kills down the hall, and the dragoon added while my pet was killing the adherent. I figured I'd kill him and get the helmet while I was there.

Through complications with the Chardok fight, I ended up camping for the night without the second skull. So, the next day I went back to LoIO, with zero luck. Nobody was in the fort, so I killed everything, including the Chancellor. I never saw a dragoon. Finally I was fighting my way back out, and there was a dragoon at the door. I killed him, looted the skull, and went back to the merchant. And, smooth me, I gave the helmet to my pet rather than the merchant.

I went back to the fort and killed another dragoon, he was about 8 kills in.

So it seems like a completely random spawn to me. Usually there are groups in the castle, so just /auc for them to send you a tell if you get one. Between that and killing things yourself, you can probably get one pretty quick.

There is a pootion of swirling mist you can buy at the baz, but what you will need is a NO Drop "A Potion of Swirling Mists". Once you make it. Made the mistake of buying the potion from baz and tried turning it in : ( Bzzz
Now I have been to Dalnir twice with no Channler : \ Oh well just so no one makes the same mistake. : )
