    Find Lokar To`Biath in the library of the 3rd Gate at +895, -1245.

    He will not respond to a Hail.

    You say, 'are you a scribe of dal?'

    Lokar To`Biath says 'The Scribes of Dal? All of them are long since [dead].. or at least most would say that.'

    You say, 'why are they dead?'

    Lokar To`Biath says 'Perhaps, perhaps not. I cannot remember, but perhaps Innoruuk would help me remember should you tithe him a bottle of red wine from the Blind Fish.'

    Give him a single bottle of Red Wine. It can be from anywhere, not just the Blind Fish. Give him four bottles at once (unstacked) for four rewards.

    Lokar To`Biath says 'Ah, yes, let me pray to our god.. Yes, Innoruuk has given me wisdom. A Scribe of Dal still exists, disguised as a barkeep in the Blind Fish. This information will not help you though, for she has sworn a [vow] of silence and will not speak of the Dal.'

    Your faction standing with Dark Bargainers has been adjusted by 10.
    Your faction standing with Dreadguard Outer has been adjusted by 1.
    Your faction standing with Dreadguard Inner has been adjusted by 1.
    You gain experience!!

    This is one of the best quests to gain faction with the Dark Bargainers (Neriak Residents) and with Dreadguard Outer and Inner as it boosts the factions without giving you faction loss with anyone else.

    The reward text is a lead-in to the "Tome of Ages" quest.

    You can turn in as many as you want at a time. I turned in 900 (one stack) on a level 1 mage. She made it to level 3.5. If you want faction, you only need to use 1 invis potion. I would assume 4000 red wines at one time would possibly crash your character/zone.

    Easy way to get an alt to level 10. Red wines are sold at the bar with Ratraz in it.

    Buy as many stacks of Cloudy potions as you intend to do turn ins for to get to indifferent . Initiate the trade, get your 4 wines in - click potion on belt then click give (making you indifferent at trade time). Alternatively you can have someone cast invis on you before clicking give. Did this from dubious about 15-20 times and got to indifferent. Once at natural indifferent factions. Give wine until all 3 faction give the message that you can't raise the faction further (meaning your Max Ally).

    Did this with my Froglok Ellrosi Marr cleric because I got a Guise of the Deciever from casino

    One bottle of Red Wine to Lokar To`Briath in the Library:

    Your faction standing with Dark Bargainers as been adjusted by 10.
    Your faction standing with Dreadguard Outer as been adjusted by 1.
    Your faction standing with Dreadguard Inner as been adjusted by 1.

    it is very easy to cap the merchant faction quickly, the others will take work.
    On a positive note you can hand him 4 stacks of 20 Red Wine at once to 80 hits to each faction.

    For my half elf agnostic warrior, I started apprehensive, and took only two turn ins (8 red wine) total to get to indifferent, so only needed 2 cloudy potions. At 200 red wine, I maxed faction with Dark Bargainers (with Dreadguard Outer and Inner both still threatening). At 680 bottles (34 stacks), I was dubious to both Dreadguard factions. 1,020 bottles (51 stacks) found me amiable with both Dreadguard factions. Amiable still with both at 1,360 (68 stacks). 1,700 (85 stacks) conned warmly with both. At 2,000 even (100 stacks), maxed ally with both Inner and Outer Dreadguard. At 1 plat, 2 gold, 4 silver coins per stack, 124 plat was used for red wine (not including the price of cloudy potions). Also, for any curious, other factions to her are: dubious with necro/SK guild (The Dead), apprehensive to the caster guild (mage/wizzy/enchanter "The Spurned") and the cleric guild (Priests of Innoruuk), indifferent to the warrior guild (Indigo Brotherhood), threatening to the rogue guild (Hall of the Ebon Mask), and scowling to Gribnor the Small (small troll that seems to be on no faction); therefore, the only places my warrior now has to stay away from is the rogue guild and the one small area that Gribnor is in the mansion on the roof, and the ghouls guarding the Necro area, all in Neriak 3rd Gate.

    My paladin of Erollisi Marr I took in and did this, probably turned in the same amount to max faction, and found it to be threatening is highest she can get with Inner Dreadguard, amiable for Outer Dreadguard, and max ally with Dark Bargainers. I was hoping for dubious for Inner, but at least I'm not KoS with Outer! hehe I think I'm the only epic'd paladin on my server that has max ally faction with Lucan in Freeport (for SoulFire, as part of Fiery Avenger) and max faction with the Outer Dreadguard (the faction that Kirak Vil is on for Fiery Defender).

    68 stacks--same as above

    As described below, Lokar To`Biath won't take the Red Wine if you aren't at least indifferent to him (faction: Dark Bargainers).

    I tried to charm him in chanter shroud form, he will take the wine but you won't get any faction hits, so that doesn't work.

    If you are below indifferent, hand him a Red Wine (or four at a time) and drink a cloudy potion before you confirm the trade (OK button in the trade window). Repeat until indifferent to him, then you can do it without cloudy potion.

    Did not accept wine at apprehensive.
    Did accept at indifferent.

    If you have someone charm for you, he is indifferent, and quest works. But you will not receive faction, only XP.

    If you have someone invis you before you click "give", you get faction as well.

    I was able to do it, Superior Camo to Lokar, handed him 4 red wine and then clicked a cloudy potion. Faction hits came as expected. You can't cast when the "give" window is open but you can use clickies. Human Ranger, Karana follower, took me 30 cloudy potions to get to indifferent then I didn't need the invis any longer for hand ins. About 300PP for the potions.

    You can't do this quest if you are a troll Shaman. In fact, it appears you can't do any of the quests to improve your faction with the dark barginners. None of the Quest givers will talk to me. woo hooo

    No. Hand him a stack and before you click give use a cloudy potion and you will get the factions. I did this as a troll of Rallos Zek and 1 stack took me to indifferent and I didn't need to use another cloudy potion after the first. If at first you don't succeed...cheat. The Teir'dal will respect you for it. :D

    This quest is no more. I went in with my 29th troll shaman and he would not take them. I tied to invis, but you appear as soon as you attempt to hand them in. You also cannot cast invis once the trade window is open.
    Still Active
    # Jun 23 2007 at 6:27 PM Rating: Decent
    it's still active. if your faction is too low with dark bargaineers, you need to reinvis after you start handing in (but before you press give). i'm a halfling druid and had no problem getting to ally with dark bargaineers and finally worked up to threateningly with some of the guards...

    Im a 66 Tunare Half Elf Ranger. Started at Kos it took me 212 bottle of red wine to get the could not possibly get any better message with Dark Bargainers. After 2000 bottles I was dubious to the guards.

    Just hailing him doesnt do anything, but

    If you ask him "What scribe of Innoruuk" he says "I am his scribe, and He is our god. There is nothing else to be said."

    If you ask him "Are you a scribe of Dal?" he says "The Scribe of Dal? All of them are long since [dead].. or at least most would say that."

    I said "are they dead?" he said "Perhaps, perhaps not. I cannot remember, but perhaps Innoruuk would help me remember should you tithe him a bottle of red wine from the Blind Fish."

    I gave him the bottle of red wine. He says "Ah, yes, let me pray to our god.. Yes, Innoruuk has given me wisdom. A Scribe of Dal still exists, disguised as a barkeep in the Blind Fish. This information will not help you though, for she has sworn a [vow] of silence and will not speak of the Dal.

    I said "what vow" and he replied "Break the vow? She might. Were you to tithe 70 gold to your god, Innoruuk, he might aid you."

    I gave him 70 gold. He says "Take this note to the Scribe of Dal, and perhaps she will break her vow."

    You also get a plus faction hit with Dark Bargainers, Dreadguard Outer, and Dreadguard Inner after giving him the 70 gold.

    Just wanted to update that 30 more bottles of Red Wine maxxed Dreadguard Inner and 148 maxxed Dreadguard Outer. So the factions can not possibly get any better and the totals were: 212 Dark Bargainers, 2030 Inner, and 2148 Outer.

    Just took my gnome in to do the quest so I can buy spells. Lokar says nothing when hailed and handed me the red wine back saying he has no need for it. Yes, I'm doing it right. I've done this with numerous toons since 2000.

    Is this quest no longer active? Any ideas on how to raise dark bargainer faction now?

    Quest worked for my H-E Druid. Have to either have soemone case invis on you while you're doing the turn-in, or have Indifferent Dark Bargainer faction.

    Took about 400 turn-ins to go from KoS to warmly for Dark Bargainer faction, however, many, many, many turn-ins later, I'm still KoS to Dreadguard Inner.

    "Hail, Lokar To'Biath."

    no response.

    Hand him 4 bottles of red wine -

    +Dark Bargainers
    +Dread Guard Outer
    +Dread Guard Inner

    Lokar To'Biath says:
    "Ahh yes, let me pray to our God.. Yes, Innoruuk has given me wisdom. A scribe of Dal still exists, disguised as a bar keep in the Blind Fish. This information will not help you though, for she has sworn a [vow] of silence and will not speak of the Dal."

    "What vow?"

    Lokar To'Baith says:
    "Break the vow? She might, were you to tithe 70gp to you God, Innoruuk, he might aid you."

    I believe Lokar To'Baith is on Dark Bargainer faction. After I came back to do this quest again, he was still Warmly to me, where as after many times of killing Dread Guards of Neriak, I was low, low Dubious to them.

    LOL - not to sound flippant, but I found out here, 5 years ago. ;)

    I do not know. I looked at the Book of Turmoil quest and fully understand your dilemma. ;) I would say the book of turmoil quest leads you to this, but the book quest says to do this one while you're doing it for the book. catch-22 if you were to asked me.

    Did this quest for kicks while I was waiting to do my epic pickpocket.

    51 Dwarf Rogue with DE mask +/- some leveling in CB young = indiff

    Went ally with merchants after about 12 stacks, still working on guards inner/outer after 35 stacks.

    Same faction hits as above though, working swimmingly on Brell (Cazic).

    The faction hits for this quest seem to be:
    +10 dark bargainers (maybe even higher, goes up fast)
    +1 dreadguard outer
    +1 dreadguard inner

    Agnostic high elf can become ally with the guards, but it takes a lot of wine. A wood elf druid following tunare only got up to dubious with the guards after maxing faction with them, and that took 70+ stacks of wine.

    hello, lvl 58 karana loving ranga here. I just did this quest to build up my neriak faction. I needed to get faction here so i could buy stones that i need for a port to hate. but anyways, i did this quest without the help of a enchanter. I used superior camoflauge and tried to do the turn in, it didn't work. I scratched my head.... then i used superior camoflage and SNEAK at the.. vola... i gain faction with the dark bargainers, dreadguard inner, and dreadguard outer. be wary though, you may be amiable with Lokar To Biath, but that doesn't mean you are amiable with the guards, Ive turned in about 100 bottles so far, still dubious with the inner guard and the outer guards still hate me. Im gonna go turn in a couple hundred more bottles. You can buy the red wine from a vendor in north freeport near the tavern buy the bank, or you can just make it like i did, need a brewing trivial of 95, and the four ingredients, a bottle, wine yeast, berries, and grapes. Enjoy and have a good hunt.

    There is a vendor in Neraik 3rd gate about 15 feet away in the bar, that sell red wine. About 6 vendors toatl sell it in that zone. So if you bring friend along to illusion you, you can buy the wine there.

    Note you need Dark Bargainers faction to give him bottels of whine or invis start trade then get a 2nd person to cast invis on you. Then press give. This works as of december 2004

    note that after 1 hand in my Casic-Thule erudite Necro got enough Dark bargainer faction to hand in on his own.


    Hail, Lokar To'Biath
    --No response

    Lokar To'Biath says 'The Scribes of Dal? All o them are long since [dead].. or at least most would say that.'

    They are dead ?
    --
    Lokar To'Biath says 'Perhaps, perhaps not. I cannot remember, but perhaps Innoruuk would help me remember should you thithe him a bottle of red wine from teh Blind Fish'


    You hand him 4 unstacked wine bottels bought from any merchant.

    Lokar To'Biath says 'Ah, yes, let me pray to our god,, Yes, Innoruuk has given me wisdom. A scribe of Dal still exists, disguised as a barkeep in the Blind Fish. This information will not help you tough, for she has sworn a [vow] of silence and will not speak of Dal.'

    Your faction with Dark Bargainers got better
    Your faction with Dreadguard Outer got better
    Your faction with Dreadguard Inner got better
    You gain experience!!

    what vow?
    --
    Lokar To'Biath says 'Break the vow? she might. Were you to tithe 70 gold to your god, Innoruuk, he might aid you.'

    Note havent tried giving him 70 gold might be more info after that.

    This is purely empirical but comes from experience with three characters: Troll Shaman (Innoruuk), Ogre SK (Rallos Zek), Gnome Enchanter (Agnostic).

    Dark elf guards:
    Dread Guards Outer: Nektulos Forest, Neriak Foreign Quarter

    Dread Guards Inner: Neriak Commons, Neriak 3rd Gate

    Indigo Brotherhood: Some guards in Neriak Commons, near or in Warrior Guild I suppose. Not sure if the Exterminators are on this as well.

    Priests of Innoruuk: In and around the Cleric Guild in Neriak 3rd Gate

    The Dead: Near Necro/SK guild and at least one roamer, specifically one that goes near the Cleric guild (a spy perhaps?)

    Ogre/Troll guards:
    Some in Neriak FQ can be The Dead also. Some are on Da Bashers. Not sure if some of the Ogres are on some Ogre Faction or not.

    Keep in mind that DE Necros/SK The Dead oppose the other casters (The Spurned).
