    You say, 'Hail, Shazda Kaekwon'

    Shazda Kaekwon says 'Shalom, _____! I welcome you to our humble village in these [trying times].

    You say, 'What trying times?'

    Shazda Kaekwon says 'There are many threats currently facing this village. The kobolds of Clan Kolbok are becoming bolder in pushing the boundaries of the territory in which they usually hunt. A few of the kobolds now hunt recklessly, killing for pleasure instead of sustenance. [Rognarog] the Infuriated is the most murderous of such kobolds. Then there are the [heretics] that have been invading both Clan Kolbok and Kejek territories alike, practicing their dark sorceries as a show of devotion to their faceless god.

    You say, 'What about the Heretics?'

    Shazda Kaekwon says 'The heretics have not only corrupted their own spirits but they defile the spirits of the dead with their evil sorceries. Fill this satchel with the heads of invading heretics and I shall reward you for your allegiance to Kejek.

    Receive Burlap Satchel. Inside it, combine four Heretic Heads (any combination of male and female heads works). Then hand in the Satchel of Heretic Heads.

    Shazda Kaekwon says 'Less heretics to defile the lands and spirits. You have the gratitude of Kejek for your assistance in repelling the heretic threat.'

    Your faction standing with Kejek Village has been adjusted by 8.
    Your faction standing with Peace Keepers has been adjusted by 1.
    You gain experience!!
    You receive 8 copper from Shazda Kaekwon.
    You receive 7 gold from Shazda Kaekwon.
    You receive 3 platinum from Shazda Kaekwon.

    Sometimes you may receive Kejekan Tribal Headband or Swiftclaw Sash. These are not common, however.

    most of u seemed to have gotten it by 10 turn in's. I did 17 and never got it, this was 2 years ago, so i figured it might be broken, guess its not, so i will try on my new server, but will be difficult w/out a tracker. Can anyone list the know areas where they spawn, amybe using landmarks on the map. I know with my ranger they spawned by the east river and in the north west, but /loc's will help thx

    If you go to the middle of the map you should be able to track pretty much the whole zone (i have a pretty high track, but you get the idea) from here you will almost always see if a heretic invader pops.
    possible spawn loc

    A possible spawn point is around -378,-1205. I watch track and pick them up as soon as they pop. Only take me 10 seconds to get to them, so they can't wander far.

    lvl 31 RNG. Ive done this about 10 times now and gotten the sash only once. I would imagine that this quest would be A LOT harder without tracking. the granite backs tend to have decent loot so one can hunt them while waiting for the heads

    Best of luck... the sash is worth it.

    I realize that some people have had harder times, but i finally got the sash after the fifth turn-in. I don't get to play much so every time I logged in for the past few months, i campthe the heretics. I was KSed once by a kejek tiger, so have a fear up to stop animals. jelquar only spawned once. my only sugestion for this quest, is to take on the other quests as well, for this will be a long camp.

    Good luck all, and have fun

    I've done this quest about 20 times have only gotten the Sash twice. This is a difficult quest if you dont have a tracker as there are usually only max of two heretics in the zone at any given time. Respawn seems to be about 30 minutes. Heretics only have about 800 HP and are easy kill if you can find them. This is an easy quest for druids who can port in and out easily check for heretics and leave.

    ok well your all great and all but...WHERE are the heritics?
    No item at turn-in
    # Nov 29 2003 at 11:06 AM Rating: Decent
    I've only done the quest twice now, got headband first time and second turned up 3pp and change, but no item.

    I got the empty sack while I was still holding the combined sack, then turned in the combined sack and only got money.

    Is this common?

    Well, I finally got my first sash, on the 9th try. I was planning on doing a test, and saving all heads until I got four of each, and try different combinations, but I got impatient, and got the sash with three necro, and one SK head. So, I don't think that it matters what your faction is, or which heads... I can also confirm that Jelquar's head counts as a heretic head, but nothing more. I got the sash without his head. So, 1 in 9 is the odds for me. I will continue to do this quest, and will see if the odds improve or not.

    I hunted SB for 4lvls solo on my druid and 4 WoFS later I've only been able to see/find 2 heretics and never the named one. each time I found them not far from the shoreline pre-LoY and was wondering if there is a better spot for spotting them. I spent many months there without a single one showing on track. I know want to set my mage up in the area since for some exp & fur for trades *tailor* so any info would be helpful since no track.

    Hello all. I've hunted Stonebrunt for several levels on both my Druid and my Ranger. I've killed many many of the Heretic Invaders. I read all the posts, tried all the different tricks. When I got the sash, I'd write down what I did, then attempt it again, only to get a headband. At this point, my advice is don't believe any "trick" to get the sash. I've gotten the sash 4 times, and lord only knows how many headbands. My faction is as high as it can get so that isn't it either. I personally think it is simply a random chance item, but weighted to the headband much like rolling on an item when Raiding. Sometimes you win and sometimes you don't. Good luck to you all.

    This was in the item post section itself, it gives the best idea for getting this all the time I've seen, so I thought I'd pass it on.


    Quote:
    I have done this quest 7 times over the last 3 days and have gotten the sash on 3 of those times. Heres how I did it.
    On the first two turn ins of the heretic heads I conned indifferent to the Kejekan cat people. I read somewhere else that an amiable faction may help in getteing the sash. I proceeded to spend 600-700pp working my faction up to amiable by doing the following;

    *Give Emylie a Large Brick of High Quality Ore and an Oak Shaft.

    *Emylie Steelclaws takes the supplies and begins to work on the hammer. She works swiftly and efficiently then cools the finished hammer and hands it to you.

    *You recieve a Kejekan Smithy Hammer. You also receive a faction adjustment in favor of the Kejekan people.

    Emylie Steelclaws is located in the first building on the right upon entering the Kejekan village. I then destroyed the hammer she gave me and repeated the process. I did this about 40-50 times to get my faction from indifferent to amiable. After getting my faction up I have done the quest four more time and have gotten the sash every other time, so far.

    Heres the summary;
    First turn in - indifferent con - no sash
    Second turn in - indifferent con - no sash
    Faction work to amiable
    Third turn in - amiable con - Swiftclaw Sash
    Fourth turn in - amiable con - no sash
    Fifth turn in - amiable con - Swiftclaw Sash
    Sixth turn in - amiable con - no sash
    Seventh turn in - amiable faction - Swiftclaw Sah

    I am going to continue working this quest for some more of the sashes. I will post some more about my success and failure rates on this. Good luck in your questing.

    Did this quest maybe 20 times, each time using four heads from Heretic Invaders, each time getting the Kejeken Tribal Headband.

    Today I found Jelquar the Soulslayer and took him down. He also drops a Heretic head which looks identical. I put the three regular heads and Jelquar's head in the box, did the combine, and the box again looks identical - Box of Heretic Heads. Turned it in, got the Swiftclaw Sash for the first time.

    Coincidence? Probably not.
    I did it! :)

    Got the swiftclaw sash for my ranger today on the very first try. I killed the ones that were called "a heretic invader" to do it. Killed the shadowknight twice and the necromancer twice. For those of you think you need special heads to get the sash, you're wrong.

    well....a friend of mine linked the sash he had obtained from the quest, so i know it's possible. i dunno what the chances are of getting the sash, but from what i'm hearing from this forum, i'd say it's not worth anyone's time. my suggestion: go camp the froglok ghouls in lower guk if you want a haste item. =/
