You say, 'Hail, Ran Sunfire'

Ran Sunfire says 'Hail, ______! I trust you are not afraid of heights. Kelethin is a grand city, but it is also a safe haven from predators and evil beings. About the only thing to fear are the [pixie tricksters].'

You say, 'What pixie tricksters?'

Ran Sunfire says 'An irritating lot of fairy folk. They have been starting fires in our great forest. They may just burn our grand community down. We will have to [exterminate the pixies]. It is unfortunate, but it is for the good of the entire forest.'

You say, 'I will exterminate the pixies.'

Ran Sunfire says 'Then I give you this pouch. Should you fill and combine it with pixie dust, I shall pay you greatly for your deeds. We may even find a use for the dust itself. Careful, small though they may be, many are quite strong. Search for the weak ones for now.'

You receive an Empty Pouch (identifies as "Puch for Pixie Dust" [sic]). Combine 6 Pixie Dust in the Empty Pouch to make Pouch of Pixie Dust. Hand Ran Sunfire the Pouch of Pixie Dust.

Ran Sunfire says 'We thank you for your deed. Here, then, is a small reward. Nothing more than long forgotten equipment, but it may be useful to a young ranger.'

Hey Everyone,

My first message on Alla's website. I've got the six pixie dusts (tracking definitely helped). The only problem is that for some reason when I try to combine the six dusts (can't stack in the pouch), they won't combine. Any thoughts?

May many rangers be masters of tracking.

Don't feel bad, this is the third quest that I've had to combine something to complete it and I wasn't able to. I don't know what it is. Maybe these quests don't work anymore.

maybe if you want to RP, but go find a level 190+ baker and ask if he needs these, forage while youre at it and save cinnamon, if he wants to incresase his skill he will pay nice for this. probably can get at least 1p per cinnamon and 1p+ per 3 dusts. id buy you leather from the store for pixie dusts even, and thats better than tattered crap armour.

I did this quest when I was pretty low level, like 4 or 5. THe pixies weren't that hard to find, but when i turned in the dust, I got some sort of Chain Mail Kit. I don't have a clue what to do with it. Can anybody help me out here?
Pixie City
# Jun 22 2002 at 12:42 PM Rating: Default
Pixie dust is very hard to find and people won't probably bring it to you. So therefore result to the pixie city in gfay. I got around 40 pixie dusts ina bout 120 pixies, but beware, you better have wolf form or something because brownie outcasts hang around there (levels around 30) unless you want to (and can) kill them. I wrote the loc down somewhere, it's near the faerie city I think. Rangers and 20+ druids would be helpful. I believe 1100, 3700 both pos is the faerie city.

I just finished the quest and it nearly drove me nuts! I didn't get it till lvl 11 and The Great God Verant, in its "infinite wisdom" seems to have skewered the odds: I found the prolific Pixie Tricksters to have disappeared almost completely. But, after 5 straight hours, some help from a GM, and an angry in game note to "The God"' I finally got the dust. Now I'm afraid to turn it in; do I combine and turn in the product, keeping the bag, or combine and give her the bag and goods, or turn in the bag and let her combine them. I'm so paranoid of the way Verant skewers this RPG that, whatever I do, it will be wrong, and I will have wasted my 5 hours. Its really starting to frustrate me.

I know that every time I kill a pixie trickster, it says that my faction has gone down with the pixies. What is the effect of a low faction with pixies, is there any benefit to having a good standing with the pixies...

If you have low pixie faction, then high lvl pixie mobs will agro on you...bad because the elf gauds won't help, so if you have high pixie faction the pixie messengers and queens and others that can be 20+ won't attack you and you'll be safe
Exp & getting bag
# Aug 10 2001 at 12:42 PM Rating: Default
You have to tell her, "I will exterminate the pixies", to get the bag.
This quest is reallly good exp at level 4 and lower (about 5/6 of a bubble). I went from level 4 to 5 by doing this quest about 7 times. I bought all the pixie dust in town from the merchants for a little over a gold each.

Be aware that when you kill the pixies, your faction lowers with the Pixie. This can cause them to train and attack you on sight if you do this enough times.

Also be aware that Guards won't help you kill the Pixies! If you can't handle them you have to hope that a Player Character is nearby who will assist you... I would not help, though :)

Tracking is needed

In order to get the pixie Tricksters in a short amount of time, you will appreciate the tracking skill of rangers.

I did this quest (for faction, fun and roleplay) in less than an hour.
I had to kill around a dozen pixie to find 6 Pixie's dust.

I f you hunt in the forest, you will encounter some pixies on your tracking list, so you can do this quest while hunting orcs or other mobs (when not in camps) So keep your pouch so you can put all the dust you will eventually find.

Note that the pouch is a very small container, you won't be able to store rusty weapons or pieces of armor in it

And it's a Pixie Trickster

You kill Pixie Tricksters, a level 2 mob found near Felwithe to get pixie dust. About a 25%
drop for them.
Wrong Faction. None for Scouts.

I've done this quest three times. Twice I got leather armor but on the third try I recieved some chain armor. Don't know if this was a glitch or not though.
Ranger Version

The ranger version of the pixie dust quest, as opposed to the Scout (rogue) version tends to usually give, raw silk or leather armor.
