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.

Got the ore yesterday, twice in fact. I think the odds are something like this:

- PH will spawn named at least 1 in 6.
- Named will drop ore about 1 in 6.
- There are 6 named/PH.

That means on average you gotta wipe the place (or the named at least, but almost as easy just to do the whole place) about 6 times to get an ore to drop. I wiped it about 10 times, then got the ore to drop twice in the next 2-3 runs.

Of course the infamous EQ RNG (random number generator) will work it's will upon you!

I have the Strange Green Metal and a Shissar Bow, and am only getting "you cannot combine these items in this container type" messages when I try to finish this.
Did they take out the bow? I've tried in all forges in PoK, and the forge in the basement of Sshraeszha Temple.

When I was camping this with my guild, there were two other named with the last name Soriz and Kylong.

If I remember correctly, there were five ancient Iksar tribes: Kylong, Obulus, Kunzar, Jarsath, and Nathsar. I wonder what the name Soriz means, since the last name of the rest of the named is after the ancient Iksar tribes. Can anybody shed some light on this? =)

Soriz was the Iksar tribe that was taken to Luclin with the Shissar.

Almost every tribe has some item named after them. Dented Kunzar, Kylong darkmail, nathsar vambraces, Obulus Death Shroud, Jarsath whatever, and Dusty Soriz Boots.

6 tribes, 5 medalions, 1 got kidnapped.

Just a bit of lore.

#Noxist, Posted: Nov 13 2002 at 8:33 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I've heard rumor that any forge will work for the combine. can any one confirm that? I've been able to get to the temple with help but never lived long enough to get a green stone. i want to turn my shishar knight sword into the corupted knight sword... BTW do you have any idea how hard it is to get to the temple at my lvl... Definatly not easy. i must be insane trying this now. any way i still cant seem to find the green stone drop info. the mob the area things like that. I hear it drops from the skellies in the basement area but i cant confirm. if any one can help with that let me know I'll continue my search of these forums but so far i've only turned up a few clues nothing solid.. thanks

Well dear

The issue is not getting to the drop site for the green metal (you can pretty easily get to the mines if you know the way), or clicking the combine (trivial is set at 1) -- but rather the issue lies in your chances, at the moment, for looting a green metal ore. For the most part, the groups that are here in the mines are not there for exp, but rather are there for themselves, eqipping their gruild with shissar bane weapons to kill the emperor. They will not, more than likly, allow you to loot the item that they are there for, unless you brought them some nifty gifts to trade for looting rights.

Not sure if the final weapon has a reccomended level either -- if I recall correctly, there is not reccomended level

The corrupted versions of the weapons are no drop. I bought a claidhmore in bazaar recently to practice 2HS with. There a lot of these without the shissar bane because of the low availability of the green stone combined with the fact that some people want to make a little money with these which you can't do once you make the combine and it becomes no drop.

the Shissar weapons required to make the corrupted shissar weapons are fairly cheap in baz, since they aren't too hard to get, and aren't that great (and most certainly ARE dropable). The green metal and the corrupted shissar weapons are harder to get and are no drop. The green metal is alot less common than the weapons themselves in my limited experience, since it appears to only drop off the named in the mines, but the weapons drop off elites which appear to spawn in any of the normal snake spots (you're likely to get atleast 1 uncorrupted weapon while camping for the idol or ring)

But is it possible for a lvl 45 Pally to get down to where the Green Metal Drops and get to the Forge?

I'd love the added stats.

# Sep 30 2002 at 10:41 PM Rating: Excellent
It isn't that hard. Does greenmist have shissar bane? Yes? Then yes it can hit the emperor. Do I know this for a fact? Yes, I helped kill him and the only shissar bane weapon I had was greenmist.
Very important

first: yes if a weapon has a bane to shissar it will harm the emp. So yes the SK greenmist is worth it....hell its even worth it even if you have no plan to go up against the emp.

second. Ssra is a killer zone. Its got some great xp and drops. I've gone there a few times for just xp and now am trying to get a couple of these warswords just for general grouping. my advice is to try to get one or two of these weapons for yourself. It never hurts to be ready incase you need to go kill some snakes. Also if people know you have shissar bane weaps it's a lot easier to get in on ssra groups.

So, if you don't have some shissar bane might as well get some. wont hurt ya to have one and makes ya look pimpsor

the weapons are NO FAIL means a lvl 1 char with the components could make them if he/she could get to the forge in the basement of the temple, and as I stated in another post, these weapons will work on all shissar not just the emp, so if your guild is farming the emp key then its best to aquire your weapons to help in the proccess, the weapons have a minimum damage of 20 per hit, if you have hunted in the temple a lot you have noticed that you get a lot of hits for under 10 points witch sucks, I have primal warsword and still get hits for 1-10 a lot with max str and dex, so do your self a favor and make your weapons asap to help your farming efforts.

If you know where to get the ore in the mines, before you enter mines one can go left or right (facing them). Go left it should have 2 iksar skellies ( green con, non-aggro) standing next to it

Heh. Epics won't touch the snake you need these for. To kill the emperor, you can't really do better than 13/20 or 14/20.

It's a shame they weren't Emperor Bane or something. It really causes bottlenecks for guilds who are trying to gear up for Emperor. The metals are rare drops and take a lot of time to get when you have to get 80 to 100 (or more) of them for your guild to be able to try the Emperor.

The stats are similar to slightly better than epics but they are only useful on snakes.
uh... no...

Close, but no banana for this particular monkey with a keyboard. The Shissar Knight's Sword is 10/22 and the Corrupted version has excellent stats. The Shissar Bow is 20/35 and the stats on the Corrupted aren't amazing, but they could be worse. Not godlike ratios, but when you consider the stats (especially on the Knight's Sword) and the ability to take on the emperor, these are well worth it.

There's really no need for you to get these weapons. They're no drop, and you can't equip most of them. And if/when you face the emperor, you're going to be using your spells.

Unless you just want to give them to your pet.

i would also suggest giving them to pet if that wasnt nerfed.

many many years ago in a land far far away from norath, the gods decided to nerf giving no drop wepons and items to pets on account that enchanters were able to charm another player into a pet and hand them no drop items. thus concludes the story of pets weilding no drop stuff.

and another thing about it is that pets usually dont live too long during fights with emp or others cause AEs usually wipe them out too fast. casting aego and buffing pets is a waste of time mana and components for this reason. i dont see too many clerics activly healing a pet over MT. my suggestion is dont waste your time on your pets.

Pets that are unbuffed usually don't live long, but with Pet Affinity, my pet is now routinely fully raid buffed, and I always get a full pet kit from a mage if I can. While that leaves my pet shy of the tanks in terms of total HP, it certainly has at least half again as much as I do, which is pretty respectable given my gear.

This alone isn't worth all that much, but since group heals and cures also land on my pet... well, let's just say that most fights don't see my re-summoning after.

That said, I've been working on PoP, and have yet to do the emp. Who knows, perhaps his legendary spikes of damage will indeed wipe out my pet in the first few rounds.

I can understand that normal weapons can't hurt the emperor - but I would of thought that Greenmist - a weapon clearly designed to be a shissar bane weapon would of been able to do some damage - even if it was only its bane bonus that got through plus the proc.

#Anbori, Posted: Aug 26 2002 at 12:25 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Sorry scaly dude, but do you have ANY idea how tough the old sk epic really is? For a human sk like myself, it's rougher than killing thousands of skele's in pure darky territory on TZ (which, by the way, is nearly impossible to do without being CC'ed like thirty times a day). That and the fact that greenmist can actually be used for more than one purpose makes this weapon awesome as **** to wield...and if someday I can ever finish this damned epic...I'd have both Inny's curse (and for you Inny followers, just go **** yourself) and Greenmist.

No skill check required.

Blades/Ulaks/Daggers/etc are common off the Elites (guaranteed to have one). The Ore is the bottleneck. Drops off Nelza Kunzar (sp?) a skeleton in the mines, as their rare drop.
