    Hierophant Oxyn is in the Temple of Terror.

    You say, 'Hierophant Oxyn'

    Hierophant Oxyn says 'Greetings, and may the pain of the ancients guide you. You have come to us for guidance, have you not? We are the Hierophants of Cabilis and we guide the young Scale Mystics. All petitioners shall speak with me of [temple tasks].'

    You say, 'What temple tasks?'

    Hierophant Oxyn says 'The Temple of Terror requires all young Scaled Mystics to [perform daily tasks.]. The tasks are necessary to the upkeep of our order as well as that of our brothers, the Crusaders of Greenmist.'

    You say, 'I will perform daily tasks.'

    Hierophant Oxyn says 'We require many components for various rituals. Take this Component mortar and fill it with the following items - foraged [mud crabs]. two small mosquito wings and one portion of bone chips. You must then use the pestle and combine all the components. When you have a full component mortar, you may return to me and I shall pay you your wages, but most importantly, you shall prove your devotion to the Scaled Mystics.'

    You say, ‘What mud crabs?’

    Hierophant Oxyn says, ‘Mud crabs are tiny crustaceans which live along the mudcaked shores of the Lake of Ill Omen. You can forage for them and find a handful of them at a time.’

    Hierophant Oxyn hands you a Component Mortar and asks you to fill it with the following items:

    Two Small Mosquito Wings
    One Bone Chips
    One Mud Crabs (foraged in Lake of Ill Omen).

    You'll get some experience, faction, copper, and some Cursed Wafers. You will then get the first skull quest.


    Hierophant Oxyn says 'We appreciate your service. Take a few copper for your deed as well as some of our cursed waters. They will provide you with nourishment. As for future tasks, we are searching for a few [lost skulls] and i am sure you are searching for your [iron cudgel of the clairvoyant] And i also hear that the furscales are in need of some broodlings to do some manual labor. Tell them Oxyn sent you.

    Your faction standing with Scaled Mystics got better
    Your faction standing with Legion of Cabilis got better.

    Receive two cursed wafers.

    Word is you have to be troll or iksar to do this quest. All other races can not get above indifferent on faction and this stops you from doing the turn in. Oh well, guess will have to be satisfied with tribunal totem in ranged slot a bit longer. Totally blows how far sony and verant pushed the iksar race onto people. Iksar planar armor is over and above all other planar armor and they can quest items like this to push their stats and resist even further above everyone.

    If you raise your faction with Legion of Cabilis and Scaled Mystics, you should be able to get this quest.

    I have maxed my faction with the Scaled Mystics on my Barbarian Shaman, but cannot get this quest. Oxyn answers my questions, but does not give the container. Also, Zand will not give the Penance quest. I even rolled an Iksar Shaman, but he does not answer to any phrase about a lost cudgel.....

    Normally he is right where are the spell merchants and the guild master is, just on the left side of the guild master(mirroring Zand's position). However I haven't seen him on Vazaelle for several days at this point. It might be that some part of the newest cudgel quest is broken and they removed him for a bit. Just banked my outcast skulls for now.

    When I gave the bowl to Oxyn he said it was worthless and destroyed it... What did i do wrong.. I had 4 things in the bag.. Should i have separated the mosquito wings and put one in each slot?? Also, do you need to combine the bag??
    RE: Cursed Wafers Quest
    # Apr 08 2002 at 3:29 AM Rating: Decent
    Yes, separate the wings and yes, combine the bag. This rule applies to every quest in the game, I think. Always place 1 item in each slot and always combine if the quest container allows.

    As a 51 lvl ranger - I will tell u a secret all foragers know - as long as u are in the proper zone, it doesn't matter WHERE u stand or by what when u forage, u have the same chance no matter what. It is completely random, so don't waster your time moving around for nothing heh

    well i was a lvl 5 at the time and i just wanted to say that the mud crabs look like fishing grubs, or edible goo. when i foraged them i thought DANGIT stupid fishing grubs, but then looked at them before deleting them. just wanted you to know what to look for. and BTW it took me 4 attempts and i was standing on the grass at the end of the buildings. good luck people and hope you catch crabs.

    A little hint that might help some is, if you forage fishing grubs, you will get the message, "You have scrounged up some fishing grubs". If you get a grub-looking item that isn't a fishing grub, you will get the message "You have scrounged up some food". There's several things with that same graphic, esp. in the Ykesha zones

    I'm a level 5 and it took me about 6 forages to pick up the mudcrabs. I was standing right outside Cabilis ruins where all the sabertooth kittens are.

    THis things are annoying to forage for, You don't have to be anywhere near the shore of the lake to forage for them. I foraged my right by the Cabalis zone, as did this lvl 1 i was helping the only problem is that he ate them. I've foraged for an hour or two before this and an our after he ate them.
    I'm with joel

    Foraging
    # Jun 08 2001 at 6:28 AM Rating: Default
    After having played a high level ranger, druid and now a low level iksar, I can tell you...

    Specially foraged items aren't more plentiful depending on location. Standing in the middle of the river, on the banks, in the fortress or on top of the windmill all have exactly the same chance at foraging a special item.

    Location has absolutely nothing to do with what pops up when you forage, provided that you're actually in the zone where the item is found.

    I purchased the mud crabs from a vendor on the shaman guild.
    The weapon
    # May 13 2001 at 4:10 PM Rating: Default
    The weapon you get from the skull quest is.... well... crappy. It has one less delay then the one you get for turning in the note. But, some of the weapons for the later skull quests are good, and you need each weapon to do the next quest. Thats the only reason I would ever do this quest.
    RE: 1 hour??
    # May 03 2001 at 10:00 AM Rating: Default
    First thing I foraged was mud-crabs. Course I did not know what they are, and since they are food I chowed down on them, only to be told "you eat the mud-crabs"
    Took me 4 hours to find more... :(

    # Apr 20 2001 at 4:47 PM Rating: Default
    I have nearly master forage, and am in LOIO a fair deal - my shammy friend needs them; I forage all the time and get them frequently <<all over the zone>> now if I can remember to have food in my backpack so I dont consume them before I can return to Cabalis to bank them - I am considering starting a mud crab business - would any of you frustrated adventurers care to buy some crabs??
    1 PP :) - be@mill - send tell.
    #Anonymous, Posted: May 04 2001 at 6:57 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) my Iksar shammy on quellious serverwould buy some.
    Guess What! Its about Mudcrabs!!!!!
    # Feb 25 2001 at 1:49 PM Rating: Default
    I must be the most unlucky Isakar on Kunark. I have foraged over 10 hours by the stupid lake. I have tried foraging by the gate, on the sores of the lake, on the water surrounding the lake, in the river, by the river, i even ran up to the windmill once and still no luck in finding the "handfulls of mudcrabs" Hierophant Oxyn talks about. I think all NPC's that are untruthful should be stuck down where they stand. All I have to say is these stupid wafers better be worth while because of all the time I wasted and all the exp I lost by messing around the lake.

    Here's a really stupendous piece of advice I got from someone I don't remember. One of the options menus includes a section where you can assign a secondary command or keystroke (or something; I haven't played in a while) to various commands. What I do is put Sense Heading (or, in the case of a foraging character, Forage as well) on one of the 6 hotkey slots. Then, in that menu, I set it up so that whenever I pressed the left arrow key, it would press my Sense Heading hotkey as well. You could set up both Sense Heading and Forage this way - left and right. Every time you make a turn, you use the skill. You don't even have to pay attention! I just forgot about my Sense Heading for five levels or something on another character, checked it out, and it had a skill level of fifty-something and worked almost every time.

    I'd love it if the dishonest NPCs were stuck down where they stand! I'd stand back and nuke 'em until I'm oom, then meditate back up and do it again!

    Wafers are just food, and the mudcrabs are difficult to find since you have to forage for them, and that takes time. It's really not worth focusing time on this quest. Forage as you do other things, and if you find the mudcrabs finish the quest. The main point is to learn about the skull quest, and to have him tell you to tell the Furscales that "Oxyn sent me".
    #Anonymous, Posted: Apr 30 2001 at 12:21 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Actually you are wrong in the saying that it is not worth the time. If a shaman wants to do the Skull Quests (numbered 1-6) then they have to complete this one first.
