Turned em in UNSTACKED. Didn't try stacking em. Stacking em at all seems to be a problem in Katta.

Kroldar is at p143, n2082, and on the second floor of the building he's in.

No need to chat with him before turning the stuff in either.

I finally tracked this guy down (not a very daunting feat since he doesn't move) and gave him four generic fangs from generic Coterie. He then told me he required four fangs...and nothing else. No XP, no trumpet, no extra trinkets, nothing. The only thing I noticed was that I stacked the fangs when I gave them to him. I don't recall this being a problem with other quests.

Fat chance of me getting more since I've only been in one Coterie group and I've not found another since, according to one peep "they don't drop phat loot nor are they good XP".

You ALWAYS need to place the items in one at a time. Stacked items will not be counted separately.

Ok guys. The faction gain for a Dark Elf SK in Katta is so unreal that its not even funny anymore. If there are any of you in the same boat that I'm in and have managed to up your faction with Katta give me an idea of how many frappin mobs related to this faction you killed and how many vampyre fangs you have turned in. Sadly I have spent over a week being vamps and collecting fangs for turn in. I had to find a friend to help me turn them in and after we did this I was still scowled at. Someone please tell me if I'm just wasting my time doing this faction or if you do improve it. I would hate to think that SoE/Verant has frozen the faction for a certain race or class.

An ex-guild kindly took me on a Nathyn raid without telling me about the huge faction hit and then patronizingly told me afterwards I would never need this faction. Irony reared its ugly head as the very next day, my boyfriend told me about this great shield quest -- the Loyalist shield. *sigh*

This gets to the part about how long it took me to fix faction. At this point, I was indifferent with guards and scowls with Nathyn. I spent the next two months solid killing coterie, practically every day. If I had to estimate, I've killed between 800 and 1200 of them, hope that gives you some idea. I'm now dubious with Nathyn and warmly with Katta guards.

Haven't done fangs/ashes/blood, but the stuff drops at a fairly steady rate, and I suspect the faction hits are comparable.

The coterie fort closest to Katta is the easiest one and also has the bonus of being the only one where you can hunt and not be annoying by wandering bats/wolves. If you don't want to wait for respawn, get a couple friends and just make the rounds, go from camp to camp to camp or camp the castle. The coterie drop lots of nice cash items, I tend to collect the armor to give away to newbies (it's dark red and looks very nice on certain races).

It's not painless, but it's certainly possible if you dedicate yourself to it.

Mulling about this, I think my estimate is low, I think it's closer to 1500 to 1800 coterie killed.

Since I was warmly with guards, I thought it wouldn't hurt to kill a few but only took about 20 of them to drop my faction with the merchants to apprehensive.

If you're concerned about other Katta factions, fangs give negative Nathyn hits, ashes/blood do not.

Interestingly, I'm amiably with Lcea, gonna have to check to see what's up with that.

I'd say it's a huge waste of time. Other than the EB item quest, there is little of value here really, and NOTHING that is worth spending so much time on this stupid faction. As an Ogre, I started KoS myself and have now slaughtered tons of vamps, turned in fangs, ash, blood, and I'm STILL dubious to the majority of Katta. I can't buy or sell, and yet I could kill their guards or merchants on a whim. Perhaps I shall!

You're better off exp'ing or doing something FUN. The only reason I kill vamps now is because in THEORY there's a big ugly **** that spawns and he drops extremely rare spells (he's the only mob that drops them, I guess). No-Component EB for one, also a Beastlord friend of mine needs something from him as well. Of course, this mob is tough and highly resistant to non-vampy bane weapons, but I was just gonna fry him with casters. =)
Still haven't seen him. =(
See ya in game, perhaps.

Nothing of value you say??? Try looking up the Sheild of Bane Warding. Katta is where this quest starts. Maybe the sheild isn't for everyone but I think that the one's who can use it should determine if it's worth the time to raise their faction or not.

For all you eveel types) simple way to faction for Katta is to kill guards in Sanctus seru, and in the Netherbian Lair, most conned blue to me at lvl 35. Guards and citizens(if you can call those brainwashees that :P ) in Sanctus are prob higher.

Ignore this post this is a load of crap. Yes it does raise the faction but not so you would notice.

I have persued this to no real avail. The Marus seru gaurds are on about a 15 minute timer and there are 6 at the entrance to Neth. There are 5 at the entrance to Santus Seru.

I have spent a total of 18 hours killin these guys. Thats 44 guys every hour. So we have a grand total of at least 792 kills on these guys.

In Katta they were scowling at me prior to starting this. And now guess what? They are still scowling at me.

Perhaps this does work but don't count on it in a quick mode.

Presently I go to the vamp castle in Tenebrous mountains and ask those camping if I can lay a dot on there kills so that I get faction. So far everyone has been ok with that and I have gotten faction on 5 Named vampyres. Changed nothing for me as to faction.. But I did get a Blood Weave Sash that one person couldn't loot.

This too is probably a futile persuit. Who knows perhaps these hi level named vamps give no more faction than do the low level Hands Of Seru.

Update

Killed at least another 800 Hands of Seru 80 coterie and perhaps was in on the kill of 15 more named Vamps.

And lo and behold I don't believe it I am still be scowled at in Katta not the slightest change. At least now I can kill the coterie for xp.

As to all the quests that raise katta faction oddly they all start in Katta and you must at least be dubious so as not to be killed outright. And from what i read dubious just doesn't cut t with any of these quests anyway.

My Factions with

Legionaires of the Hand could not possibly get any worse

Hand Of Seru could not possibly get any worse

Seru could not possibly get any worse

Just what exactly does it take to raise this faction this is totally silly.

As per the suggestion above, I tried turning in Generals Boots, Nothing for them at least. Will try a cloak soon.

After you have turned all four fangs in Kroldar says his little thing and you get the faction increases. His last sectence, "Should you be ambitious and skilled enough to confront the coterie leaders and live I will respectfully grant you the honor that you deserve" sounds to me like there is more to this quest. Has anyone tried turning in anything from the generals (ie the general boots or cloaks)?

Just did this tonight with a druid friend.

Since I am a Dark Elf SK worshipping Innoruuk, I am deep KoS. The best way to do this is to get a druid friend to harmony this guy, then stand far away and hand items in. Before clicking on the Give button, have the druid camo you and then click the button.

You get the faction and reward.

It sucks that they make factioning in Luclin so damned hard when they make the evil races KoS in the big cities.

That is used for the druid/ranger camo cloak in Katta, I believe.
