Berk Thurstone may be found at -307.15, -1614.44, -266.87.

You say, 'Hail, Berk Thurstone'

Berk Thurstone startles and gazes up at you, 'Careful, careful... I am nearly out of pyrrhotite.'

You say, 'What is pyrrhotite?'

Berk Thurstone says 'Pyrrhotite is the name of this ore I have my hands on here. Ye see, I may still look an able-bodied dwarf, full o' spit and fire, but the time is coming where'n I may lose a step or two and they will take me off me post- I want to be prepared for that time. I have been doing some [experiments] on this piece of rock, trying to have something to bring to Toktonn and maybe secure a job in ore studies for meself after retirin' from the Validus Custodus.'

You say, 'What experiments?'

Berk Thurstone says 'Well, there is a powerful magnetic quality to this particular rock, but it is very inconsistent. If I can figure out what makes it tick, it'd sure be a boon to some o' that crazy engineering the gnomes're always doing. This sample is running out though, and it ain't easy to come by what with the durned grimlings hogging the mines, I'd sure appreciate it if someone were to bring me some more. Careful though, it's deceptively heavy.'

List of faction hits, additional dialogues, /loc of quest-giver, etc. needed.

I have to agree with the last poster. This quest should be under quests that LOWER your faction with Nathyn.

It says this quest raises faction with Nathyn.
This is incorrect as it actually lowers it.

Also about katta faction..doesnt the story go that katta and seru are at odds end because Katta LET the DE's join the Combine empire???..and Seru was against it??
If I read correctly thats why they hate each other so why is it a DE with a Neutral deity..is still dubious after all this..lol
Just stupid if ya ask me..heck I am amiable in highpass hold,wfp,thurg,CoV..among many other places..but these ppl who wanted DEs to join I cant raise faction..so instead of posting silly IMO stuff why not post some useful info like how you got faction up..tired of a Ann Landers type gossip colum board..no more IMO just the facts please.

Be happy you're dubious. As a DE Cleric who has done nothing to hurt Katta faction, they still want to nail my toon's hide to the wall. I had vaguely the same understanding as you at the start, and now wish I could even enter the city safely. (For faction try killing koterie or seru guards. Just don't expect it to fix quickly.)

You can bet your tail that you are. =( In order to raise your faction you best kill the Seru guards in Marus Seru or all kinds of vampires in Tenebrous Mountains and Maiden's Eye.

I am a DE, I turned in 2 of these rocks so far..and didnt see the faction for the citizens at all.
So I went and killed vamps for a while..got 4 fangs, 1 blood, 1ash turned in the fangs...Dude took em and said he wont do buisness with the likes of me!..After he took my fangs!
Got PO'd and took my pack to rallic..He took that too and said the same thing...now I am packless and fangless in Katta..and still at dubious..is this all really worth it??
Guess I gotta find this Seru place and kill guards but first gonna check the quest lists.
I am DE wizard of Sol Ro...they way ppl treat ya, you'd think I was innoruk himself...so much for a "new beginning" on the moon!
"Can't we all just get along?"..heh

Wow you go DE and excpect to get faction up in 2 seconds. Sigh, of course you have to be DE like darth Wader and all. You an evil race get it. If you really want everyone to get along, I suggest tetris.

Deity has a larger impact on faction than race. Yeah, race has an impact as well, that's why a DE who's agnostic or Sol Ro they're dubious in Katta, while one who worships inny is scowls. Also, take Bertoxxulus for example, who has no other deity allies (Cazic and Inny are pals for instance), a gnome who worships bertox is kos in many parts of his own home town. Of course ogres, trolls, and darkies still have to work on faction even if they're agnostic or neutral worshipping, but not nearly as much as worshipping an evil deity.

I made the mistake of telling the corporal (?) in the guild halls up that i was there to annoyn him. Intantly he told me he was going to report me to his superiors and i went from indiff to the gaurds, citizens, and merchants to aprehensive.

pissed by my stupidity, i went to leave, and saw a piece of the Pyrrhotite at a merchant near the bank. remebering seeeing the dwarf on my way in, i bought a piece (11pp) and gave it to him, and was rewarded with no exp, but went back to indiff to everyone. so either the faction hit is signifigant, or you start out right on the border of indiff/aprehensive. it was my first trip to katta
Damnit

Damn i have sold about 50 of these for 2pp each to vendors...wish i had have known...could be amiable faction or better at katta by now :(

I got a chunk from a grimling orefinder wandering near the Grimling Forest zone entrance. You don't need to be in the mines to get this drop.

Face the entrance to the bank. Turn to the right and you should see a pasage. It's sort of behind and to the right of the bank. Follow the passage back in. IF I remember right he's int the first room on the right after you cross the water.

Berk is located under the graveyard =) that is, on sea level in Hobbit tunnels. The dialog:

You say, 'Hail, Berk Thurstone'
Berk Thurstone startles and gazes up at you, 'Careful, careful... I am nearly out of pyrrhotite.
You say, 'what is pyrrhotite?'
Berk Thurstone says 'Pyrrhotite is the name of this ore I have my hands on here.

Now give him a Pyrrhotite sample from TM grimling caves.

Berk Thurstone says 'Aww, noice, this'll do just right. Thanks millions, Elisania. Yer ok by me, ye are.

since one of the latest patches.. the sample weighs 10.0 and is *NOT* lore! so you dont have to make a bazillion trips from the mines to katta.. it does seem to be a little more rare now but at least you can carry a few.
