As an erudite paladin of Prexus, this is a useful quest to get faction with Peacekeepers from amiable to kindly or better. For each turn-in of a 6-bone chip bag, you get 3-6ish in gold, 10ish in silver, plus a random item, which includes the spells: Spook the Dead, Cure Poison, True North, Yaulp, Lull, Divine Aura, as well as a couple of rusty 1HB weapons you can use for low level smithing - making tarnished weapons.

As of 30 September 2002 Earth Time,
I have recived these rewards with a Erudite Paladin forllower of Prexus :

- Raw Hide Gauntlets (3 times duh)

- Backpack
- Belt (4 slots thingy)

These level 9 spells :

- Yaulp Spell
- Cure Poison Spell
- True North
- Spook the Dead

And THIS ! NOT Kidding

- Divine Aura, mana 10, level 51 spell

Too bad it sells 1silver 8copper, it's not like I will need this one in a LONG time :P


EDIT: Some more :

- Raw Hide Sleeves
- Raw Hide Wristband

- Lull (LEVEL 15 spell)

So, you DO get more than rank 1 spells with some luck (if you can call this luck receiving a level 51 spell at level 2, that's just EVIL >D )

<sigh> All thoes spells are low lvl cleric spells. Divine Arua is a little 5- 10 second invincability spell. with a recast time of like 15-30 min. Aye, you get a lvl 51 Pally spell, but remember...(it's lvl 1 cleric :)). But you would think that at lvl 51 you could perchance afford a lvl 1 spell...<hmmm 1 gold? seems a bit steep for me>

When you get the message about paying homage or accolyte of peace, you respond :"I am a new acolyte of peace". After that you should get the message of either battling undead and some phrase refering to the peacekeeper staff quest. You then say that you will battle the undead. after that you should get the box with the combine button. Thats how my erudite paladin did it.

You need to raise your faction with them before he will talk to you. Your faction needs to be at least Amiable. (It's the Peacekeepers faction, by the way.)

The only way to raise this faction up to amiable seems to be this quest:

http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=1270

You will have some difficulty doing this quest at level 5. It is fairly deep inside the warrens and the Kobolds will not be happy to see you.

To do any of the Peacekeepers quests: Poacher Head, Poacher Leader, Testament of Vanear you must have amiable faction. There is only one way to raise faction with them as there are no mobs you can kill to raise factions and almost all the quests which raise faction with them, start with them and they won't give them to you unless you con amiable, not indifferent. Sound like a bind? Well there is one quest which will raise your faction with them slowly that anyone can do. It is called The Catman Alliance. It starts in the Warrens prison sector. There you will find an Erudite Captive named Aderius Rhenar along with some Kerran captives. If you hail him he will ask you if you are returning to Erud soon. Answer "I plan to return to erudin soon" and he will give you a note to give to Leraena Shelyrak in the Temple of Quellious where you will receive a smigit of exp and the all important FACTION. Then repeat as necessary until you have your faction raised. Hope this helps.

Did Testament of Vanear quest a long time ago and only became indifferent to Peacekeepers recently... so not sure about needing amiably to complete that quest.

I found another way to increase faction with the Peacekeepers. Killing the baby sharks in the Erud Dock area will raise your faction with the Peacekeepers as well as the Crimson Hands and one other guild.

"a young shark" doesnt give faction with Peacekeepers, only the factions listed above...

I just tried it on my other account. Apparently the ONLY way to get peacekeepers to amiable in order to do the OTHER quests is the one involving Aderius Rhenar (in prison in Warrens).

I've done THAT one at least 20 or 30 times so far and am still indifferent. Any other Pally (or faction seeker) have any idea how many times I've got to do this stinking quest to get "amiable" so I can start the bone chip quest? I can farm bone chips and do that quest a lot easier than traveling from erudnext to warrens and back... sheesh, hehe.

I'm trying to raise faction for the final pally epic turn in(s). Dont want to mess THAT up.

Your faction standing with Deepwater Knights got better.
Your faction standing with Gate Callers got better.
Your faction standing with Craftkeepers got better.
Your faction standing with Crimson Hands got better.
** Note that this gives Deepwater Knights faction
Note also that the biggest faction adjustment is -Heretics! **

They're called; "a young shark" and are tiny. You should be able to see them; they spawn often enough but not really frequently, in the harbor area of Erudin. They're about fish-sized, and are a bit hard to spot, but if you're in the area and keep checking the harbor you'll come across some.

to get the young sharks to spawn, you have to kill the diseased shark.. they are its babys, and basically its ridding the port of diseaded sharks.

OK, I killed Sentinel Creot 2 times and now I'm KOS in Erud by the guards. I'm a lvl 31 Barbarian Warrior... I spent 2 hours killing kobolds in the warrens with no change in faction with the Guards... any ideas to help me get to Dubious will be greatly appreciated. Also, is Creot's faction High Guard, Deepwater, or Peacekeepers?

You have to just keep killing Kobolds.... though it may take a very long while.

I have to mention that, if you needed your Erudin faction, killing Creot might not have been the brightest thing in the world to do.... and killing him twice borders on sheer stupidity.

Hmmm killing the necro wont help him, you dont get highguard faction for killing him. However, if you loot his bones you can turn them in to the leader of the crimson hands for highguard faction..... now the problem, the captain of the highguard stands right next to him as a 31 war he would get his teeth kicked in by him, is also a inside zone so wolfform wont even help him. Sorry friend but looks like your only option just now is to play some more in the warrens.

You give his bones to the leader of the gatecallers, the ones in blue robes.

My last erudite char (started about 5 months ago) frequently got rawhide pieces or blunt rusty weapons. I started a new char a couple of weeks ago and she has handed in at least 20 boxes of bone chips and not gotten a single raw hide piece! Now she only seems to get level 1 spells and the occasional worn great staff. The gp reward is still good, but the items do not seem as good as they were =(
All in all, this is still a good quest, but not half as good as it used to be.

What??? This quest only requires 6 bones??? I turned in a STACK of 20 bones in every SLOT for a total of 120!!!

Lord, if I'd known that 6 woulda done jus fine I would saved myself alot of time and effort!

The nice thing about this quest was that I could put it on the back burner and do other things. Skellies are everywhere ya go in Odus and the Qeynos Hills areas so as I killed a few each hunting trip and simply added them to my stash box that I kept in the bank vault when I went to drop off my cash. It took forever, but it was relatively painless. I am actually doing it for the 2nd time. What the heck!

Good coin for the level
# Jul 05 2000 at 7:30 PM Rating: Decent
This quest easily ranks with the dwarven chip quest as the best newbie quest in game. As an erudite enchanter, with alliance, I was able to turn 3 stacks of bone chips into about 6 platinum. But for a real newbie cleric, this quest is great, as you can be fully outfitted in raw hide, by the time you reach lvl 5. Basically, about every 3 boxes of chips (6 slots per box), you can expect to receive a piece of rawhide. Otherwise, you will get a blunt weapon (usually a mace), or any type of rank 1 cleric scroll. As a newbie erudite cleric, don't buy any of your spells, if you can avoid it. You'll get all of them in short order by way of this quest.

The xp isn't anything like the dwarven chip quest. But the cash redeemed is quite a bit better. By far, the easiest way to stockpile cash for a newbie by way of quest (other than striking the jackpot with a Bullsmasher).

Do a search on just the keywords "bone chip" and you'll find a hit for the paladin's guild in Kaladim. The paladin's guild is hidden behind the cleric's guild, in North Kaladim, so scout the area out first. Small PW armor is the usual reward, and the xp is increadible.
