You say, 'Hail, Drenic Garrison'

Drenic Garrison says 'Greetings! I am Drenic Garrison, Governor of Science here in Katta Castellum. I am currently involved in several scientific endeavors with the other governors and am in need of assistance supplying my researchers with the proper [materials and samples] for their studies.'

You say, 'What materials and samples?'

Drenic Garrison says 'The Magus Conlegium are assisting with some studies on the physiology of the Vampyres of the Coterie of the Eternal Night and are in need of [ash and blood] samples. Maralicis Dilsm our Governor of Health is assisting in research on [counteragents] to the venom and diseases native to Luclin. Finally, there have been reports from the agents of Erikal Wolfeye that there is a civilization of [snake people] that live on the furthest reaches of the light side of Luclin in a region devoid of atmosphere.'

You say, 'What counteragents?'

Drenic Garrison says 'Since our Empires first arrival on Luclin a citizen or in some cases several citizens occasionally fall victim to terrible diseases and toxins. The effects on our people were devastating at first but over the years we have become more accustomed to life on this moon. Still, if we were able to eradicate these diseases and poisons entirely many lives would be saved. The damp subterranean Fungus Grove and Paludal caverns are among the most infested areas. If you brave those dank passageways and return with a Muck Beetle Mandible, Black Fungal Fiend Spores, Green Fungal Fiend Spores, and a Grimfang Poison Sack I will gladly take them to the researchers for further study and experimentation.'

You receive the following faction hits on hand-in.

Your faction standing with Magus Conlegium got better.
Your faction standing with Katta Castellum Citizens got better.
Your faction standing with Validus Custodus got better.
Your faction standing with Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Hand of Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Eye of Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Hand Legionnaries got worse.

Need final dialogues.

Easiest way to get these are as follows...

Get a balanced group of 50+, we do it with a 53 chanty, 54 cleric, 54 SK, 53 shammy, 55 monk and a 54 wizzy.

Look up the summoning beasties quest in FG and take your group and about 200pp with you. Buy the cheapest bottle of beer to do the quest and set up in the tunnel and have a good time doing the quest.

If you can make it through 2 rotations, 6 mobs, your gonna get at least 1 of these spores, you might even get lucky and walk away with some loots to

Muck Beetle Mandible is found in Pauldal off of Muck Beetles, don't know /loc sorry.

Black and Green Fiend Spores are found in Fungus Grove and drop off of Chakta Fungusbeast's which are located at the base of the Teleport to Twilight, sorry once again don't have /loc =))

Grimfang Poison Sack had to be the most annoying part of this quest because I had NO clue where this dropped and spent 3 days running all over Luclin killing everything in sight, hehe =)) But for you lucky people I found him, he is a fish in Twilight. /Loc P500 N100, has a PH of a Twilight Wetfang Minnow and respawn time is 20 mins. He is called Grimfang, and stuns and casts a poison spell, my guess he is level 35 or so. Green to 60, but still kicked my butt pretty well =))

And now for the reward!

Mug of Purifying Tonic
Primary/Secondary Lore
5 Charges of Purifying Tonic, beats me what this does, probably cure Poison or Disease or both =))

Try this little tactic if you have a 60 chanter in your group... Those Lotus blossoms that cannot move chain nuke for 450 plus.. Have your chanter (charm) it :) Then when you pull your mobs in :) the dang flower will rip em a new one :)

hmmm...We ran around Fungus Grove last night, and everything on track was green at lv 52.

Maybe you need to go deep deep inside. Red Fungal Fiend Spores dropped, but saw no other colors.

I was in Fungus Grove today, in the first mushie cave (well, the only one I went in - didn't go very far) had two(?) VERY large mushies that were scenery off to the left a bit on a hill, and surrounding the base were a group of little cute mushies that were "A small mushroom", and either solid blue or EVEN FIGHTS to me at 50th. These cute little even fights also Scowled at me, ready to attack. I did not pet or eat the mushies.

Where in Fungus Grove were you roaming?

Out of Echo and through the town I was getting green to blue cons.

All the things I found that were aggressive were blue.

A small mushroom

and that iritating perma-rooted chain nuking Lotus.

Both blue at 59.

They nerfed this zone conciderably a few patches ago.

Mobs that were blue to me at L57, went down to Light blue or even green, the XP from mobs that are still blue, droppped by more than 50%.

Spell drops were reduced, and the Agro rules in the zone changed. The Tormok now have some social agro rules.

It's a shame cause when this zone first opened, I managed to fill my alt adv bar in less than 8 hours.

This must be a higher level quest, over 50 for sure judging by the Fungus Grove and Paludal Caverns being a 50+ mob zone. Please post any information if anyone has been to these zones and if the mobs can be solo'd or grouped
