At the end of the previous quest, you were told to head to Katta Castellum and seek out Tilbok Furrunner. Tilbok Furrunner is located near the grave yard area and is inside a castle building along the 2nd floor. He is the Rogue guild leader.

You say, 'Hail, Tilbok Furrunner'

Tilbok Furrunner says 'Hello there, Limecherry. Pleasure to meet you, I am Governor Tilbok Furrunner. I am tasked with the gathering and security of information for the Concilium Universus, the ruling council of our fine city.'

Give him the Report to Tilbok.

Tilbok Furrunner reads through the report, hands you a small satchel then starts to explain, 'Finally news from Euzan. I knew that it would take a long time to get planted within Seru, but I still worried about their mission constantly. This report shows that you have earned trust from Euzan, so I in turn will show the same trust. Euzan and Torsten were placed in the city for information. They are deep undercover and risk their life everyday. Every person in that city is ingrained with the [purpose] of either destroying Katta or converting his people.'

Your faction standing with Validus Custodus has been adjusted by 10.
Your faction standing with Katta Castellum Citizens has been adjusted by 1.
Your faction standing with Magus Conlegium has been adjusted by 1.
Your faction standing with Nathyn Illuminious has been adjusted by -1.
Your faction standing with Coterie of the Eternal Night has been adjusted by -1.

Your faction standing with Hand of Seru has been adjusted by -5.
Your faction standing with Eye of Seru has been adjusted by -1.
Your faction standing with Hand Legionnaries has been adjusted by -1.
You gain experience!!

Note: the faction hit here is fairly large but shouldn't make you KoS in Sanctus Seru. You receive a Report Satchel.

You say, 'What purpose?'

Tilbok Furrunner says 'The teaching in the city is that Katta feigned his death to blame it on Seru. When in fact Seru actually poisoned Katta. The crusade that Seru leads is false and must be stopped. We must gain access to Seru's [chambers] and destroy him and show the city the truth.'

You say, 'What chambers?'

Tilbok Furrunner says 'We do not know much about Seru's Chamber, that is what we need you to find out. This will require great effort on your part. We need you to infiltrate Sanctus Seru and bring back reports from each Consillium. I do not know who will have these reports, and I have only heard rumor that they exist. Return to me with the Satchel full, and your Etched Earring.'

From here, go back to Sanctus Seru and proceed to kill...

-- A Lictor of the Heart - (Summons, Heals, Minor Nuke)-
-- A Vigilum Cohortis - (Summons, Heals, Roots, Drones of Doom)-
-- A Signiferi of the Hand - (Summons, Heals, Stuns)-
-- A Custos Armorum - (Summons, Furys, Stuns, Rampage)-

On the 3rd floor in each of the 4 main Guild buildings. Each kill is HUGE faction hits and will most likely make you KoS to that Guilds Faction. All dual wield and double attack for 150 on the average and 177 seemed to be the max.

Loot a consillium report from each and combine in the Report Satchel to craft a Full Satchel.

Return to Tilbok Furrunner and give him Etched Earring of Veracity and the Full Satchel.


Tilbok Furrunner says 'According to these reports Seru resides in a building called the Arx Seru. It is the large complex in the center of the four Praesertum Consillium. We must take [action] now. Do not underestimate the power of Sanctus Seru for what they do they feel is right.'

Your faction standing with Validus Custodus has been adjusted by 20.
Your faction standing with Katta Castellum Citizens has been adjusted by 2.
Your faction standing with Magus Conlegium has been adjusted by 2.

Your faction standing with Hand of Seru has been adjusted by -10.
Your faction standing with Eye of Seru has been adjusted by -2.
Your faction standing with Hand Legionnaries has been adjusted by -2.

You receive a Runed Earring of Veracity.

You say, 'What action?'

Tilbok Furrunner says 'You must go see Lcea. She was Tsaph Katta's closest advisor. This matter has escalated greatly and must be placed in her hands. Ask her about the [Arx Key] she will no doubt ask in your service retrieving it. I salute your service to the city and wish you well.

This leads into the fourth quest.

There is a place in each building where you can click on the wall and it pops you behind the wall. Inside each of these are more of the mobs that you need to kill (A Lictor of the Heart, A Vigilum Cohortis, A Signiferi of the Hand, A Custos Armorum) instead of just the two in each building that you can see plainly. Below are the locations to where you click behind the wall.

Took me about 8 hours yesterday to complete this and step 4 with group of level 76 toons.

Limecherry's notes certainly helped. The Hand mobs were noticeably tougher, but still pretty easy for the group. The Hand mobs also appeared to group up to 3 in a room, which could pose problems for groups at lower levels.

Each report took from 1 to 2 hours to drop, except for the Hand report, which luckily dropped after about 5 kills.

I decided to do this quest yet again for my friend.
As of October 23rd and 24th, I have cleared each house of every single thing inside of it 4 times in a row today. Yesterday I cleared all houses 8 times in a row. And by every single thing, I mean anything with hitpoints. Every single NPC, Every single GM, Everything. Not a single report dropped.
Are they bugged because of TBS Expansion? Or nerfed Ulta-Rare drop now?
Any ideas?

You were just cursed with bad drop rates. I do this quest for all new toons I create at lvl 1. Sometimes the drops as your aving are rare. I once went 4 days w/o seeing one. On others I see a few of them drop per building.

...is good, but one thing is not right. The lictor of the heart may be see invis. I will wager the chances of one being see-invis are MUCH smaller though, since I only saw one of them seeing invis, and there were plenty of them.

<Hadeshorn>

You sir are an idiot to the extreme. Does everyeone forget that this is a LUCLIN quest. PRE-Pop, PRE-GOD. This earring was the epitomy of badassedness back in the days. Hence why it was so hard to obtain. Luclin being the last expansion Verant had any involvent in. Verant made this game. SOE killed it. All SoE does is recycled crap. Throw some mobs at you, give you 15 minutes to kill them, get a flag, etc. 72 people to get 2-3 drops (okay 5-6 in P1 of time if your at that point). Verant, no flagging, just lots of fun quests. Dont compare anything to time loot if its pre-pop. And yeah i'm in time.

You are crazy. "MAYBE" if you are in a time build.

But a 25AC earring with instant click buff? That earring pwns both of your current ears.


Pulsing Emerald Hoop
MAGIC ITEM LORE ITEM NO DROP
Slot: EAR
AC: 15
STR: +15 STA: +15 WIS: +12 INT: +12
HP: +135 MANA: +140 SV FIRE: +10 SV DISEASE: +10
SV COLD: +10 SV MAGIC: +10 SV POISON: +10
Regeneration: +3


10 RAW AC > 35 hitpoints.


Bloodmetal Earring of Engagement
MAGIC ITEM
Slot: EAR
AC: 7
STR: +12 STA: +8 AGI: +6 HP: +70
MANA: +40 ENDUR: +40 SV MAGIC: +15


Nothing needs to be said about that one.

And the fact that any pre-elemental guild can take down seru with ease and do this quest.

If I may return the quote onto yourself... "You sir are an idiot to the extreme."

Sorry for the lack of follow up information since I submited this.. here is more details you might find useful.
----------------------
General Report Hunting Information:
-All report droping MOBs Summon, Death walk at 10%-20% life,  
duel wield, cast spells and can be mezed. 
-None of the mobs can be lulled or Pacified so Feign death  
pulling helps but isn't required. 
-Report drop rate is 1 in 35 on Heart and Shoulder camps,  
1 in 50 in Eye camp and 1-60 on Hand camp or there abouts.   
This is purely based on personal experience.


-=Concillium Report (Heart)=-
Loc: South-East Pyramid Structure. (Bottom right on zone map)
A Lictor of the Heart - Probably the easiest of the 4 camps. There are 2 types of Lvl 60 High-Elf mobs, Enchanters and Paladins. Palys duel-wield, stun, LoH, and heal themselves a bit. Chanters have full range of spells, root, mez, charm, fear, suffocate, gravity flux, minor nukes but have less hp than palys. Neither of these mobs See-Invis.
This camp is also easier than the others because you can single pull and rooms only have 1-2 mobs in them.

-=Concillium Report (Eye)=-
Loc: North-East Pyramid Structure. (Top right on zone map)
A Vigilum Cohortis - This is probably the second easiest of the camps to hold but breaking is tough.. Here's why, For starters, the bottom floor of this structure is guarded by a level 60 See-Invis guard that hits for around 250-307 and is highly magic resistant. (can be disease slowed) This mob is on a different faction than the regular bottom floor guards so you can single pull him to behind the entire structure by just invising and agroing him from afar. Train the mob outside and a far distance away then have your crew run in invised to camp. Then FD after a safe distance.
Once you get to the 3rd floor, random mobs see invis but most do not and you'll have to break into camp. The Eye camp is notoriously long because of 1 reason. Only 6 "A Vigilum Cohortis"'s are up at any one time. (2 at the 3rd level portals, 2 at the below level portals and 2 directly in front of Praesertum Rhugol's room). This is why this camp can take 7-15 hours+ to drop a single report. But, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. All three times the report has dropped for me, it was from a "A Vigilum Cohortis" that only had 1 weapon in hand. But don't get excited if you see one with only 1 weapon, we killed about 12 1-weaponed mobs and still only 3 dropped.
With that information, Two types of mobs here, Rangers and Druids. Expect to get a few of Dots, Fire-based nukes and Lightening-based spells while the druids love to root, stun and heal. These mobs tend to have a tad bit less hit points than the other camps but you probably won't notice. Chanters/Bards are recommended for this camp.
The two named in both rooms next to the portals are more of nusience and on a different spawn timer system. They don't drop reports. Named Gnome is lvl 65 but is underconned.
FYI, A Vigilum Centrio does not drop the report.

-=Concillium Report (Shoulder)=-
Loc: North-West Pyramid Structure. (Top left on zone map)
A Custos Armorum - This would be your third hardest camp to deal with as the level of the mobs are 60-63. Their hitpoints are the same as that of the Shoulder but they can hit a tad harder. 197 instead of the standard 177). There are 4 types of mobs here; Warriors, Mages (no pets) Paladins and Clerics. The paladins stun and lightly heal themselves. The clerics (generally gnome females) rarely CH but love to dispell you and themselves periodically during the fight. Warriors have a few more hitpoints and (in my experience) are the mobs that hit harder. The mages love to fire-base nuke and cast all sorts of spells on you and have a tad fewer hp than normal mobs.
This is also the only camp you won't be able to pull the top portal mobs and drag them through portal. They agro the yellow con guild leaders of the 3rd level to their aid. To attack these, you'll have to kill them at their spawn points. Snare/snare/snare is a must and keep your tanks HP above 40% at all times to prevent low hp agro.

-=Concillium Report (Hand)=-
Loc: South-West Pyramid Structure. (Bottom left on zone map)
A Signiferi of the Hand - Most are Yellow to lvl 65, see invis but rarely have duel weilding characters. Their resists are higher cause of the level difference. More information as I progress.
This report is notorious for being the bottleneck of the quest as they seem to drop drastically fewer here.
Speaking of which, these mobs are drastically under-coned for level 66

Excellent post Limecherry! Thank you for the great information. I went there last night with several groups and did the Heart and Eye buildings.

We got one report from the Heart building, but none from the Eye. all in all, a good trip for our first time.

The only problem we had was extreme lag. Has anyone experienced lag while raiding in seru? I've never had the lag just doing running around, but last night was horrid.

Sanctus Seru is a dismally laggy zone. Zoning in (at least on Test server) takes several minutes, lag spikes can be 20 seconds or more, casting of spells is often interrupted ebcause the cast time becomes huge (normal cast time plus the lag spike time). Moving anytime in between interrupts the spells.

Ok, killing these mobs:

- A Lictor of the Heart
- A Signifier of the Hand
- A Vigilum Cohortis
- A Custos Armorum

for the Earring Quest, does this make you KOS in ALL of Santus Serru or just that particular guild?

Was wondering, but when you say move to the next guild to take on the next GM, while running to that particular guild, will you be attacked by the guards/people of SS?

Thanks,

Group of us (60 war, 60 cler, 61 chanter, 64 wiz, and 62 monk) had no problem killing A Custos Armorum. Took a few false starts getting single pulls, and learning the safe spots etc, but we managed it ok.

So far we killed maybe 20 mobs in two brief nights, and are ready to giving up. I'm not sure why SOE needs all these time sinks - I mean, hours and hours of killing lvl 60 mobs to get an ac 3 and 3 to a bunch of stats earring? Uh... nice risk versus reward heh.

I am going to completely ignore ur comparison to time-loot and how this earring is not worth it because I just saw which guild you run with =)

Sseru has some of the BEST twink gear in the entire game of everquest.
Atleast it was for me, The Heavy Yttrium Breastplate when I got it had NO Level Req/Rec. As well asmany of his other loot. This earring has no Level Req/Rec. And look at the stats. White Dragon Helm, Blade of Carnage, Velium Encrusted Gaunts/Mith Boots-Helm. They got nice stats, but not as nice as this baby.

Now they might have put a Req/Rec on it or the quest. I don't know, I did this when I ran with Township on Stormhammer when luclin first came out. Im too lazy to check if they have nerfed it, so hold ur flaming!
Because I could really care less =)~

I think you like a person above are vastly understimating the value of 25ac on an earring. You have to get well past a Time gear level to see many 25 ac earrings. I'd gladly pick this earring over a P1 earring. Inny's ear, sure, that's better. Clicky resist = pwn. But you have two ear slots anyway.

How can you compare this quest to Time loot?

Let's see... get into a Time-enabled guild, attend an asston of raids to get backflagged and all the DKP you'll need, or, get a group of friends to help you camp an easy quest.

Hmmmmm...

Good comparison!

Hi,
Went and did the first 2 of the ring quests today thinking this was not going to be all that hard. I ws mistaken, The NPC that are listed at level 60 here are RED to me at 61 so I decidied to wait till i get a guild group there to kill them. Just thought everyone would like to know that little piece of info.

Stayaway Frome
61 Warlock
Crusaders of Drunken Might
Fennin Ro

P.S. I triple checked to make sure it was the same NPC that is listed here.

A Signiferi of the Hand is still yellow at level 65. It's been a while since I killed any of the others, so I can't verify levels on those.

Yah well I'm doing ring 3 right now and I've gotton the drop off the Lictor. Lictor's hit for 197 max dual wield triple hit. Took me 3 kills to get drop.
Working on Cohortis, they hit for 177 max, dual wield, triple hit, only killed one so far.
I'll post later bout other 2 mobs.

We tried a few lictors last night (60clr,60pally,59rgr,58war,56and54 chanters). I recommend trying to get a pally lictor and not the chanter ones, or at least be prepared if you have to pull a chanter. The first we pulled was a pally and went down pretty easily, the next was a chanter. She charmed, gfluxed, etc, while dual wielding/quads up to 177, phased or tp'd us (I ended up outside the building, the pally was sent to a hall or into a wall (though that may have been a bug)), then summoned us back at her leisure after she'd finished the others off. She didnt start porting us around til she was at less than 1.5 bubs, so if you have a nuker who can finish her off quickly, that will probably do the trick.
#JonaHelmDragonfriend, Posted: Aug 23 2002 at 3:14 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I have successfully completed the first 2 parts in about 2 hrs running around alone. This is typical Verant crap, Now i have to go kill 4 named mobs, all of which lvl60 and no joke at all, my guild could do it with ease, but the problem arises in that the reports i need are not common guaranteed drops. Let alone that they are positioned inside their guild at the top floor, meaning in order to leave wed better superior invis up, or have to fight way down through the now KOS building, kinda tuff. But not common, so...based on the report of rare to uncommon, means ud have to succesfully kill ea mob around 5-10times. WOW. all for a ac6 str6 sta6 wis6 int6 hp mana earing, almost better off skipping this step if u could and getting my guild to kill seru himself for the supposed ac25 str15 sta15 agi15 dex15 wis15 int15 sv+10to all hp50 mana50 one. might be easier doing that with 50 memebers present then getting 15 of us to repeatedly kill these punks. <sigh> but so is the life of one chasing uber items.

The earring you're thinking of is the Sigil Earring of Veracity (25ac 25str/sta/wis/int 100hp/mana 10mr/fr/cr/pr/dr eff:Acumen(activated, cast time 0.0)). It's not acquired as a drop from Lord Inquisitor Seru. It's the reward for the fifth and final Earring of Veracity quest, the simplest one. All you have to do is turn in L.I.Seru's head... and your 4th earring. Getting that one has to go through getting this one.

Incedentally, you'd have found all this out eventually without knowing where the earring was from, if you pursued it. Access to Lord Seru is an issue you'd have to deal with... and that's all the hints you get. Good luck getting to the badass, and even more luck killing him with your 50 people. :)

they hit hard. they hit fast, can hit over 400 if I remember (gave up on earring 3..., ive seen 2 drop, but lost rolls on pick up groups). Ive had a shaman go oom debuffing and attempting to land a slow (level 65 group). Its a very good idea to have Mage, high HP tank, 2 healers (shaman + druid/cleric), and more importantly, dps, the faster you kill, the less mana spent on heals. The pulls are something for you to learn, they have nice agro radius, you will have adds in time so have an off tank so you dont have to depend on your chanter. Snare can get resisted a LOT... all good when all your melee has Finishing Blow AAs maxed, specially with the fast dual wielder classes

Welcome Ranklin, Glad I can help.
As for your Dual team, We first tried the "A Lictor of the Heart" (the paly ones) with a Team of 60 warrior, 60 Cleric, 51 Cleric and a 51 Bard (me). Although it was tough, getting her down to 1bubble of HP wasn't too much of a problem. what REALLY was a problem was getting root to stick. They all tend to walk away attracting nasty add's both times we tried. I have yet to find a truely safe spot to pull from to prevent the adds if/when the walk occurs. *edit* (actually, there is a semi safe spot in the empty room between the two warp mirrors, That seemed to be the safest spot to successfully pull too.. if you don't get Summon ping ponged into the next room with the Guild leaders.... ugh)*end edit*
For a bare bones team, I would really recommend a Mage with Epic Earth pet as the 3rd attempt we tried.. root seemed to stick with the pet constantly casting its proc. That way the mage can DS to really weed down the HP fast. Cleric or two is really a must, a main tank and a high output damage dealer. We also had a monk the 3rd time around and the Heart of Seru wasn't much of a problem what so ever.
Good luck and hope you have better luck than us trying to get the drops. (still trying to get them all /sigh)

A mage with epic earth pet? Please excuse my ignorance, but I am a level 60 magician wielding the Orb of Mastery, aka epic. Are you mistaken about the epic earth pet or am I oblivious to a huge aspect of the class and epic? My understanding of the mage epic, which I've had for quite some time now, is that it's a multi elemental, having something from everything, except root. Lately tho I've been noticing a bug that other people point out that my pet looks like an earth pet, instead of the traditional air elemental look. Even so, I've never had him root. Is there something I'm missing?

Actually, sorry about that. The mage we had in our group made an Earth pet cause I speficially asked for a Rooting pet. I might have been mistaken that it was the epic pet. =\ sorry, don't own a mage. Either way.. the earth whatever it was was rooting and it was sticking. that was my point and no I don't know what version he used.
Sorry if I wrote that wrong originally. I was just trying to inform the rest of the people

I'm told it can be Pickpocketed

Since this is a rogue giving the quest (in Katta), it was brought to my attention that they might be pick pocketable. A lvl 55 rogue contacted me on my server in game about this quest. He told me he was successful in pick pocketting one of the reports after many failed attempts. He said they were not a "Magic item" but they are No drop.

I personally can not confirm this and I would love for a few rogues out there to give your feedback. Since I submitted the quest, I feel its only fair I give any additional information that may help. Please Please Please someone submit a confirmation on this if you can. Thanks

A rogue can pickpocket a mob up to 5 levels over theirs, so a 55 rogue should be able to steal from these guys.

Thank you Darksidhe for your post. I've yet to get a full confirmation on weither or not pickpocketing can be done on this MoB but if your correct on this, then apparently this earing is easier to get for rogues than the other classes.

More posts on this subject are welcomed BTW =)

Rogues can pickpocket any NPC five levels LOWER than them, at level 60. He had it mixed up.

I believe the reports must be combined in a container, then turned in. If that is the case, MQ is not an option. =(

Can anyone confirm this?

well, the rogue would only have to do the first 2 earing quests (about 90min worth of work with a porter), then combine the 4 reports in the bag, combine and turn it in --> then MQ'er would turn in old earring to get new earring.

This is again an "Educated Guess" post based on I'm stuck on the 2nd ring till my guild can help me fill my pouch hehe.

Rogues cant PP no drop items. So unless they arent No Drop on FV, its not going to work. Regardless of the mobs lvl.

According to everything I have read, the reports are simply uncommon/rare drops from the listed mobs. Not sure what the respawn on them is.

Has it been confirmed that these four will always drop the reports for their respective houses? I seem to remember the safehouse boards being unclear on the subject... presumably this information is taken from the thread at: http://pub35.ezboard.com/fthesafehousefrm13.showMessage?topicID=5018.topic but also on that board were a number of threads quoting hours and hours of killing and no reports... is this a quick in and out camp or a grueling affair?

This is a very nice earring, and well worth the time spent to get assuming the reports are somewhat uncommon, IMHO.
