|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|During the quest for the key to Emperor Ssraeshza's chamber, Elder Glanoxx said to you:
'The prophecy will come to pass at last. Take my knowledge... the knowledge of our lord. I will not last much longer. This sickness will kill me like the others. There is one other who can help you. He claims to know some weakness of these creatures, seek him at the smelting furnaces near the mines. Now I must tell you the secret of the key.'
The 'one other' he refers to is an iksar foreman in the mines. Tell him about Elder Glanoxx.
You say, 'Elder Glanoxx sent me.'
an Iksar foreman says 'So you've been talking to Elder Glanoxx eh? The disease has addled his mind, claiming gods speak to him. Nothing more than fever dreams if you ask me. Sometimes though... one could almost hope it was true. No! The fanatics will not catch me with unclean thoughts. If only there were some way to take advantage of the weakness I've discovered.'
You say, 'What weakness?'
an Iksar foreman says 'Shhh... Be quiet the Taskmasters have sharp hearing. There is a green metal found in the mines that our masters despise. We must carefully separate it from the ore before working with the purified metal. Any tainted metal is quickly destroyed. Many a slave has lost their life for not properly purifying the metal. I'm convinced the secret to the master's weakness lies in the tainted metal.'
You say, 'What tainted metal?'
an Iksar foreman says 'Yes, though none of us would dare wield a sacred weapon of the masters perhaps you could. Forge one of their weapons and some of the green metal from the mines and you can taint the metal of the weapon. Their own corrupted weapons shall be the instrument of their downfall.'
Combine a shissar weapon, which drop from shissar elites, and Strange Green Metal, which drops from the named skeletons in the mines, in any forge and you will create a Corrupted Shissar Weapon (no skill check required). These weapons are the only ones that can harm the emperor.
