Nilibik Driogo is found in the northeast of the zone, at 520, -1274.

You say, 'Hail, Nilibik Driogo'

Nilibik Driogo says 'Hello, you look like a battleworn traveller. Have you heard of the place where [Grieg] resides?'

You say, 'grieg?'

Nilibik Driogo says 'Aye, Grieg Veneficus. We do not know much about this madman, only where his [stronghold] is. One of my friends from the Eye was sent there to investigate it, but he has not returned. It has been quite some time and I am very worried about him.'

You say, 'What stronghold?'

Nilibik Driogo says 'Grieg's End is what it has become to be known as. Some reports have come back that this place is cursed with foul visages. Any entering will surely loose their minds. I.. I would go but you see I am desperately busy here in the city doing..uh..many important things! You
look like you could help, [will you travel] to Grieg's End and look for my friend?'

You say, 'I will travel.'

Nilibik Driogo says 'Good, I am glad you would prove yourself useful to Seru. Look for Bronus, you should beware if he has lost his sanity for he is almost as powerful as myself.'

Look for a naked gnome named Bronus in Greig's End. He drops a cracked amulet.

Give Nilibik Driogo the "cracked amulet" and his response is:

Nilibik Driogo speaks a small incantation as he pulls a branch from a nearby tree and ties it around the amulet 'I shall mourn him dearly, he was a good friend. This was the amulet that I had given him before he left to explore Grieg's End. I want you to have this for helping to find his lost soul. Go in peace my friend.

You get Nilibik's Yew Affixed Amulet.

Location of Nilibik is 520, -1274. That required some hunting for a non-tracker.

Why would anyone want to charm Bronus?

I (65 Shaman) went to GE for the first time last night to help get a 54 Rogue guildie up to 55. We were accompanied by a 65 Pally. We were having a good time and managed to find a couple of back rooms to ourselves, looted the Helm of Senselessness, and so on........... Anyways, we're on our way out and some druid pulls two or three mobs across our path with Bronus being one of them. He (Bronus) stopped when the door closed in front of him and proceeded to agrro me. Seeing as how he was green to me I proceeded to whack him. Next thing I know I got 2 or 3 folks shouting NOOOOO!!! We wanted to charm him!!! And then I was in tell hell with all sorts of abuse being hurled at me even though I didn't loot the corpse. When I pointed this out again I was verbally abused because they wanted to "charm him". Needless to say my Ignore list now has several new names on it.

So my basic questions remains that with MOB's out the ying-yang in this zone to be charmed, and with you having to loot the necklace for the quest what's the point in charming this guy?

Best Rgds,

A nice reason to charm him is that he is very low in level and he is a healer. That's about it. No big deal if you whoop up on him though, imo. Just do so before he heals the other mobs.

Well, considering my guild had an alt race to GE to loot the Mana Regen wands that dropped off one of the named, and I had no problem getting my level 25 enchanter there, I'd guess you could haul just about ANY level character there to loot the cracked amulet.

Then have said low level alt do the turn in, for whats really a kinda nice piece for low levels.

After all, if level 10 druids make it to UP to loot the elysians that rots there, then can easily get to GE for this.

For me he poped in the very first room that you enter after zoning in. We had just gone though it and one our way out we saw him and he droped very quick.

His Spawn Time is Very fast.. we cleared the Scarlet Desert side Zone area for a bout an hour and a half and we killed him like 6 times... He dropped the amulet.. and only the amulet every time. Hope this helps

He pops inside pot, in the far left handside of the courtyard, pretty decent fight for a grp of 55's including all other aggros.
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 27 2002 at 11:08 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Theres no way a lvl 1 could do this. well at least not without help i mean im really really interested in getting it but all my friends are @$$es and wont help me out so if there are any high lvls on rallos interested in helpin me a 31 druid on rallos ill pay 100pp.

Nilibik location
# Jan 29 2002 at 1:50 PM Rating: Decent
For everyone else, I found Nilibik. When you enter Sanctus, there are two "parks", one on the left and one on the right. They are big grass areas with one or two npcs in each. Nilibik is in one of these parks. So check either the NE corner or NW corner.
Nilibik location?
# Jan 28 2002 at 3:19 PM Rating: Decent
Can someone please post a loc for Nilibik (the quest NPC in Sanctus Seru) or give a brief description of where he is. I have searched what appears to me to be the entire zone with out any luck. Many thanks.

I've gone to this Grieg's End about 3 to 4 times a day for the past couple of days and have yet to see him. I normal check for him late at night or early mornings when no one is around. I have yet to see him in any pots, clearing the way to the court yard from both ways and checking track. Is he a rare spawn or does he spawn and despawn at certain times in the EQ day? You wouldn't think this would be a hard quest considering you can get like 6ac, 5wis, 5int neck for such a newb zone like RunnyEye.

Must have just had bad luck. I'm a 54 druid with 210 wisdom, and I solod a mob at the zoneline to Scarlet Desert, only one DOT resisted, but several roots were. He was hitting me for 170+ so it was a tough fight in a small hallway. Therefore I decided to go hunt easier MOBs in The Grey, but it is doable.

#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 09 2001 at 5:14 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) What lvl is he?
RE: Bronus
# Jan 17 2002 at 6:24 AM Rating: Good
he was blue to 52 and spawns in the pot in the left side of the CY commin from dawnshroud
hes about 3-4 kills from the zone so not as hard an item to get as 1st conseved. you can do it easy with 1 tank and a healer.

Mob levels are?

One minor point left out in an otherwise stellar description of this quest... What level is Bronus, what is is class, and what is the level of the surrounding mobs? Should a group of level 10's go blithely charging in, or is this more like folks in their 20's, 30's, or 40's. For a Cleric, Druid, or Shaman, this item ROCKS! Looks better than a Blackened Alloy Medallion. Enquiring minds want to know...

At lvl 58 the mobs around bronus were green, light blue, and some were high blue (hit for up to 205 and had tons of hps). bronus himself was i think green, he dropped really fast.

I haven't been to Grieg's End, so this is not certainty, but... If you check out the Grieg's end bestiary as it currently stands, it looks like most of the creatures are L50'ish.

This being the case, you're looking for a pretty high level group.

Hope this helps.

I was reading the posts on this item and it really took me back... 8 years later, the game has changed SO much. I'm soloing all through Grieg's End for AA's now and as a level 61 rogue, most of the zone is light blue and no threat. Bronus is a grey con and the quest isn't even worth doing for a level 1 toon anymore. But I'm not complaining, of course... I'm just reflecting.

I was puller in Arike's group when he got the cracked amulet. Bronus is near the zone, and spawned inside a pot, i couldn't see him, just his name floating over the top of it.
