He will take the letter at apprehensive even though he doesn't want to talk about the quest to you. He refused to accept the pouch even at indifferent.

I can't add the leather cap as it is not turning up on searches for me (not sure if site is bugged tonight, of if we actually have never item collected "leather cap").

Did link leather gloves and leather sleeves, but seeming to have a glitch (not showing up on my end as having been updated).

Seems like the quest should go somewhere from here but it doesnt seem like anything Ambassador DVinn drops is what he wants. I did try A Sealed Note from The Prophet, Crushbone Battle Plans from Lord Darish, and an illegible scroll from an orc oracle and he gave it all back.

You'd be lucky if the gold, silver and copper you get for the quest add up to 1PP. You won't be getting hundreds for any quest until you're in the 60's.

When I completed the orc hatchet quest and got this one I headed over to BB and camped the area between the GFay entrance and the cabins using my tracking. I never saw the Orc Runner. Since then I have spent a lot of time in that area, hunting greenbloods, practicing archery on that group of three ogres to the south, passing through on my way to or from Kaladim and the aqua goblins, competing in events with my guild at the GFay zone entrance, but never once have I seen an Orc Runner. I've seen Orc Centurians and Pawns that were running quite fast in that area, but when I killed them they never had any loot on them. So, is this Orc Runner still there?
RE: Still there?
# Feb 05 2003 at 11:53 AM Rating: Decent
Yep, he is still there. Was in BB last night, running around collecting rusty weapons for my smithing work, and I was on the trail near the two huts by the Gfay zone. I saw something coming towards me very quickly. Lo and behold, it was the orc runner. I had tried in vain to catch this guy a long time ago, and hadn't seen him since. Well, I was ready this time. I rooted him and ripped him, and got the orc runner pouch. Haven't done the quest yet, but I will today I guess. Probably too low for my level, but I felt that I owed this guy.

Today I saw the Orc Runner! I was back in BB foraging eggs and killing snakes and basilisks in the hopes of getting more eggs, and I ran across the corpse of the Orc Runner. I checked it, and the pouch was still there, so I took it and did the turn in. I am still yet to see a live Orc Runner but at least I now know they exist.

I came across the Runner today near the crossroads right after I killed Corflunck(?) the female ogre. He Conned dark blue to my 11th. lvl Ranger, but fought like a light blue. Overrated maybe? Anyway, he dropped the Note and the pack both.

I was running through Butcherblock the other day when this Orc Runner fellow went speeding past me. Now in truth, such a quest as this is really beneath someone of my grand experience and level, but as it is my habit to kill just about anything that moves, I couldn't resist going after him. A couple of well-cast spells and his corpse was lying at my feet. Looting it yielded both the runner's pouch and the runner's note.

Quite pleased with myself, I marched straight to Kelethin and smugly handed the items to Dill Fireshine. But I did not quite get the hero's welcome I expected. As he rummaged through the runner's pouch, a strange look came over Dill's face. "I am quite disappointed in you, Darkfall." he said, facing me grimly. "The orcs may be our enemies, but even we are not so barbaric as to butcher their innocent children."

I asked him what he was talking about, and he dumped the contents of the runner's pouch on the floor. Out fell a teddy bear, a box of crayons, and a bottle of milk. Turns out I didn't kill the Orc Runner ... I had killed the Orc Kindergartener by mistake!!! Doh!

Then Dill opened the sealed runner note; inside was a picture of an orc family, crudely drawn in green crayon, with the words 'I luv my mommy and daddy' written across the top in backward, childish letters. Dill pinned this picture to the back of my cloak; I must wear it as a badge of shame, so that everyone who sees me will know what horrible deeds I have committed.

So, a warning to all of you who intend to do this quest: Make sure before you attack that the mob is actually the real Orc Runner, and not the Orc Kindergartener running because he's missed the bus. You'll save yourself a lot of grief, believe me.
I killed him!!!

Ahhh I feel your pain. I had the same difficulty, where every time I saw him, the guards at the Crossroads took him out before I finished casting snare or shooting an arrow. Timing is everything I guess. He spawns up the road to G. Fay a bit, closer to the two NPC houses. I know this because once, on a corpse run, the little ****** attacked my naked self near there. The fight wasn't looking good so I snared and ran for the guards, again letting them take him out. I'm lvl 15 now and it no longer interests me, except for that nagging feeling that there's an orc out there I haven't killed.

After you give Dill the orc hatchets scroll up on the text and you should see above all the faction standings that he told you of the orc runner quest. I missed it a few times too :o)

Hope this helps!

I've come across the Orc runner three times with my Wood elf Ranger. The first time I was on my way to turn in some CB belts when he attacked me. I was level 7 or 8 at the time, and it was a pretty hearty battle, but I took him out. I got just the letter that time. I turned it in to Dill in the Ranger guild hall. I got a long bow (goes for about 4pp) various armour and some decent exp, as well as some faction.

The second time I found the Orc runner I was about level 10. It was a good fight but he conned green though. I got a cloth tunic, a CB belt and some silver. The Tunic sold for more then I thought it would. Almost 1pp...not bad for cloth.

The third time, I saw him chasing some drawfs, they looked like they needed a hand so I hit him with one shot from my bow then snared him. I took him out faily easliy at just about level 13. This time I got the pouch and the letter. I have yet to hand them in to Dill, but I am planing on it ASAP.

It's a great quest. I got some good stuff and some decent coin....and the exp is always a plus. The faction shouldn't be overlooked either. It comes in handy when you stop at a merchant. The bow is a really good bow for any lower level Ranger.

Maybe these are changes made in the latter half of 2001, but just so you all know:

You do NOT need to do the Orc Hatchet quest in order to DO this quest. Maybe you need to do it to get the information, but the quest does NOT need to be pre-activated. The Orc Runner ambushed me (the fool) and volunteered his Runner Pouch thereafter, which I promptly discovered here needed delivery to Dill Fireshine post haste :) I simply gave him the pouch (was already amiable to him) and he gave me 4+ gold, a leather mask that sold for another 6 gold and 1/2 an orange bub of experience at level 9 (nothing to sneeze at :) ).

Some general info:

1) Dill Fireshine is located in the back room of Faydark Champions, the Ranger Guildhall of Kelethin, one platform east and then one platform south of the bank (or #16 on the Kelethin map at EQAtlas).
2) I was able to solo the Orc Runner at level 9 on my untwinked (Firiona Vie server... twinking is rare :) ) Half Elf Bard.

Alright. Im a levle 10 druid, level 9 when I started hunting this guy. I found out that he spawns ever 17-19 minutes at the tree on the right, right when you pass out of the brown in the bb to gfay zoning area. A good idea is to kill him, turn in his pouch and then run back in time for the next spawn(i suggest finding a sow). The pouch gives me about 2 1/2 blue lines per pouch and the note im not really sure because i have only gotten it once. Now, beware the runner hits for some decent damage. he is pretty much constantly hitting me for 10-20 damage. good luck

I've done this quest at least 3 times. But when i asked about the note i was told to give it to the General in Felwithe in the basement of the big white building with the PoD. I give the pouch to Dill and the note to General. I'm gonna try it once more to see if the loot will be better if I give both to Dill. First time I recieved 3 rusty scimitars some gold and exp. after that loot didnt seem as good.
