After completing quest 4, Dovan tells you about the skulls of Di Nozok. He says "bring them to me, I shall wait within Zand". Go talk to Hierophant Zand about the skulls for more information.

The first one is the Skull of Die Nozok. What you want is an Iksar Skull Helm, which identifies as "Skull of Die Nozok." It drops in the Sarnak fortress in the Lake of Ill Omen off of the Sarnak Adherant and various other sarnaks.

The second one is the Skull of Dai Nozok. You need to kill Overseer Dlubish in Nurga or Droga and get the Dai Nozok Canopic. You also need to get the two keys of Dai. The first drops as a complete Ton Warrior Totem off Froglok Ton Warriors. Froglok Ton Warriors also drop three distinct "Piece of Totem"s, each of which identifies as a different portion of the Dai key. Combine these three pieces with some mendglow clay in a pottery wheel (no-fail combine) to get the second Ton Warrior Totem. You then hand the totems/keys and the canopic and 400 gp to Galdon Vok Nir in the Overthere to get an Iksar Skull (identifies as "Skull of Dai Nozok"). Be careful of your faction here. You may need an enchanter to help you do this part.

Turn in both skulls and your Cudgel of the Prophet to Hierophant Zand and you will get the next cudgel.

Overseer Dlubish

I camped and repeatedly cleared room 3 (and the two rooms west of that) for 8 hours and never saw him. As I was running out of the caves, back to FM, he was in the long hallway. Run through the entire cave system before camping one spot.

I spent way too long waiting for this guy to spawn in FM. Decided to check in Mines of Nurga real quick and he was up at the 3rd spawn point for me. (most south dot)

I just finished this quest and decided to post some of the quest text at the end, because I thought it was really neat. I didn't have a log running, so I just retyped it out.
(on turning in the canopic to Galdon Vok Nir)

You say, 'Hail, Galdon Vok Nir'
Galdon Vok Nir says 'Please do not harm me. I am not the one who brought the outsiders to our land. I am innocent and deserve to return to my people.'
Galdon Vok Nir says 'To open the canopic, I require the two Dai keys, the Dai skull canopic and 400 gold coins.'
Galdon Vok Nir says 'To open the canopic, I require the two Dai keys, the Dai skull canopic and 400 gold coins.'
Galdon Vok Nir says 'To open the canopic, I require the two Dai keys, the Dai skull canopic and 400 gold coins.'
Galdon Vok Nir takes the two keys. He inserts and twists them, one at a time, in hidden slots on the Dai skull canopic. Suddenly, it pops open and he hands you an iksar skull. 'Here you are,' he says, 'I hope it is what you were looking for.'
(on turn in to Hierophant Zand)

Hierophant Zand seems to black out, then recovers. He speaks with the voice on an ancient. 'We are Dai and Die and we await our skulls and your iron cudgel of the prophet. Become a channeler.'
Hierophant Zand seems to black out, then recovers. He speaks with the voice on an ancient. 'We are Dai and Die and we await our skulls and your iron cudgel of the prophet. Become a channeler.'
Hierophant Zand closes his eyes and reopens them. They have no pupils. He speaks and you hear his voice echo. 'We are Di Nozok. You have earned the weapon of a channeler. We hope to fill your thoughts with ours some day. Go and seek out Dexl. We send you to him. Farewell, Nuyarralek, Channeler of Cabilis.'

Combine these three pieces with some mendglow clay in a pottery wheel (no-fail combine) to get the second Ton Warrior Totem.

No-Fail Combine aye....tell that to all the pieces I just lost because it failed at 50 skill.

since revamp of mines overseer dublish now spawns in the outdoor mines of FM . hes a random from the gobbies in the mines. If it helps any with the combine of the 3 pieces and the mendglow for one of the 2 keys , i got a trivial message at 120 pottery skill :) . EQ traders has a nice section where u can level up your pottery skill to least 120 for less then 50pp which is what it cost me :).

haven't completed, but dublish is now in Frontier Mountains in goblin tunnels. Entrance is aprox -1900, +2200.
RE: post nurga/droga revamp
# Aug 08 2003 at 4:35 PM Rating: Decent
Confirmed. Dlubish is in the tunnel at that location in Frontier mtns....You will want to stay here because a skull needed for the 6th cudgel also drops the very back cave here is where they moved the Iksar slaves from Droga. Named as "an enslaved iksar" and an "iksar slave". The enslaved iksar has a ******** of hp and none of my dots landed....ended up letting pet tank him...and he calls for help as you beat his ***... the other one, iksar slave dropped quickly. The quest slave
Digalis, spawns after you kill these two.

This Quest can be done in a day with the right help

the 1st Skull is the Iksar Skull Helm dropped by Sarnak Adherants in the Sarnak Fort in the Lake of Ill Omen, they drop at least 90% of the time, identifies as "Skull of Die Nozok"

2nd Skull is much harder, you need to go to the Swamp of No Hope and hunt down Froglok Ton Warriors, it is best to bring a tracker with you, they do appear at the Iksar Camp but I found most of mine in the South Western corner

You need the totems they drop, the Orange one and the 3 broken lore pieces, I got all my pieces in 8 Warriors but I guess I was lucky on that count. To combine the pieces you need mendglow clay from Burning Woods, I brought a lv42 ranger and he got it 3rd try, I made the 2nd totem easily but I have 144 pottery, unsure of trivial right now

Next onto the Mines of Nurga and you have to track down Overseer Dlubish, he is a low Goblin, about 1300hp (Ice Strike and Blast of Venom took him down np) and get the canopy, i got it first time, as a tip he doesnt always appear in room 3, if you walk around the mines invis he can be anywhere and is quite likely to be *somewhere* I found him in the pool room in the western end

Lastly you give the two totems, the canopy and 400gp to Galdon Vok Nir in the Overthere, he is on the East Wall inside, go in Invis around the wall through the water and stick to the wall, you can hand in safely, and he was indif to me but check your faction first or you might need a chanter

Hope this helps

I think I got very lucky on the ton warriors. The first 3 I killed all had differant parts of the totem. I got the complete on off a krup gaurd at the froglok city.

Just wanted to mention that combining the 3 totem peices with mendglow clay is trivial at Pottery Skill of 94.

Completed the pottery combine with 31 skill and recieved message that I could no longer raise my skill hence it was already trivial. So hopefully the rest of you can save yourself some time if you don't plan on taking up pottery other than for this quest by knowing 31 is sufficient enough skill. Good luck on your cudgels :)
RE: Just Completed
# Jul 09 2003 at 11:50 PM Rating: Decent
Just a little FYI. Apparently my skill of 34 wasn't good enough and I did actually FAIL at the combine. I'm thinking it's got a high success rate, but it is NOT a no-fail combine.

ton warriors not near iksar camp anymore?

I cant seem to find these guys anywhere near the camp. I found ONE at the froglok city and that **** Uulump pujuk guy adds anytime I attack a frog near there(hes a 55ish mob for druid epic). Question is how are you supposed to do this quest when this lame guy who seems to always be up is there?
RE: ton warriors not near iksar camp anymore?
# Jan 06 2003 at 7:50 PM Rating: Decent
The ton warriors are near the iksar bandit camp. You just have to sit there long enough to find one...or 10-15, as it were.

I got frustrated after slaughtering everything for about twenty minutes and not finding one, so I went to the froglok village and camped out in a house where ton warriors were supposed to spawn (one never did, half an hour later). I went back to the camp and found a ton warrior right away.

After that, it was just a matter of killing everything in sight for the next three hours. I think ten ton warriors spawned in that time, naturally there were a few repeat lore items.

Another thing you have to watch for, one of the monster types will attack frogloks. I think it was the flower things. I had to "rescue" two of my ton warriors from them.

Good luck.

The isatiable devourers and mosquitos were also attacking the frogloks... best bet is to keep the area clear around the iksar bandit camp near P2500 0... In 30 mins I had 5 ton warriors spawn before I had to leave. Still needing one last piece so I will be back!

ssshhhh... be vewy quiet... I am hunting fwogloks!

i was in droga with my monk this afternoon and we saw DLUBISH. the loc was 110neg 240pos. a friend of mine was in there later this evening and she said she saw him repeatedly. i didn't ask her for a loc, so i i don't know if it was the same spot, but he's apparently showing up everywhere now.

We where on our way to the dinning room and just happened to accidently run across dublish. We were just there for xp, didn't intend on killing him, beat him down and he had the canopic. We had a very happy shammy in our group!

i just got the overseer to spawn in the room marked on eqatlas as his (#3)
i killed him and looted the jar, though i did have to spend many days and hours sitting in the room, killing many many goblins, with no overseer in sight
tonight i got it after one spawn
i killed the goblins that were up
and on the next round he spawned
i hope this will help those who might want to give up (as i almost did)
im off to go finish the quest, i just wanted to make sure i had the proper items first

Well I also have camped the overseer for many a friend and myself left a ranger in the zone at spot he was suppose to spawn at....after sending emails...bugs...and petitions...nothing seemed to work....but today after a short patch I log in and there stands the Overseer good luck to all who need him....just try after a patch and maybe u will get lucky also

RE: Woot finally got Overseer
# Sep 08 2002 at 11:59 AM Rating: Decent
He spawns around loc -1100 -500. Cave with 2 spawns at entrance and 3 spawns in the back. Overseer was the middle one. Also chant rocks drop again it seems.

On the spawn location .. just found him again in a different location, so I think all goblins might be PH for him.

Currently I have camped this spaw for hours on end with my Iksar Shammy. The MOB never pops and most GM have no clue waht you are talking about. There are posts on several boards that all say the same thing, since the revamp of Nurga Overseer does nto spawn making the quest imposible to finish. Several people have emails in to VI however you might want to add your own. hopefully this will get fixed sooner or later.

Overseer Dlubbish has got to be BROKEN. I have been off work this week and have spent over 36 hours the last 3 days camping him. I was in the room with tents and 2 double spawns in Nurga at the loc shown in forums. I have the quest print outs for Champions of Cabilis for all the quests. Most the camps as of yet have been time consuming for me at least. worst up to this was Crusader in Kurns, totems werent too bad. I petitioned 3 times during my camps for Overseer, twice with GMs online asking to verify him not being broken all three times a guide would reply saying couldnt do anything to check with people in game to ensure I was in the correct place. I have checked the websites, friends, guildmates, and the few that have actually come into Nurga while I was camping all said I was correct and they have seen him pop 2-4 times while they were there previously camping for skins, salts, etc.

I just made the Ton Warrior Totem from the three ton totem pieces. Place all 3 in the pottery wheel along with 1 piece of mendglow and hit combine. If you are successful, you will get a Ton Warrior Totem. It has the same stats as the other Ton Warrior Totem you got from the Froglock Ton Warriors. I raised my pottery skill to 111 and this was trivial to me.

Where to find the drops
# Oct 11 2001 at 5:06 PM Rating: Default
I'm going to be plugging other sites but oh well:

A friend and I were farming Nurga for Iksar Blood to make cultural armor. We killed Overseer Dlubish 3 times in the same room, at the same location. He MAY spawn in other places but he popped for us in the room at about -500, -1500 as shown on

It's the unmarked room in the middle that has 3 entrances to it.

The key and pieces of totem are easily found near the bandit camp by the FoB zone (location 3) on where, by the way, the pages for the Iksar SK quest and creeper cabbage for the Iksar necro quest are found too.

I don't understand something. It seems that the totem pieces are no drop and as far as I know it, Iksar Shaman don't get the Identify spell. How are we supposed to get these id'd then? If I am wrong about the no drop status of the totem pieces then I can understand how to do this, but I think they are no drop. Can someone please help me with this problem? Thanks.

Since the three pieces are all lore, if you have 3, then you have all 3 pieces needed. You can also hold one of the pieces in on your cursor and have someone cast identify on you.

Iksar of overthere outpost
# Mar 26 2001 at 10:20 PM Rating: Default

Did the quest. They finally fixed the iksar faction. You have to sneak into the fort, but once in there, the iksar will not attack you.

There is a dark elf in there that will not kill you... at least not right away. I hailed him and he said he was on a mission and not to bug him. I asked him what mission and he double attacked me for 160 and 200 ... Spirit of cheetah saved the day!

Hope this saves someone else from the experience!

Kirron Ni I think is the guy you ran into, he is part of the Shadowknight Epic quest, they kill him after doing a turn in of items. Its rare he is up for long.

# Mar 23 2001 at 8:29 PM Rating: Default
After recieving your quest information from Hierophant Zand , he now makes mention of Goblins and Mines and Digging if queried about [What are the skull of di nozok?]

There is an Overseer in the Mines of Nurga that drops a Canopic Jar, that when ID'd will point you to whom you should speak next. They are in Overthere and bad faction with Iksar, you must find a way to speak with them. They ask to open it, for 400gp (though rumors say 40pp will work as well I dont have the nerve to try this) and two keys. Both drop from Frogluck Ton Warriors. One is WHOLE, the other in 3 lore pieces that can only be differentiated by ID. Use your pottery Skill to mend all three pieces with Mendglow CLay to make a second Totem. Take there two totem keys amd 400gp and recieve the second skull.

Take both skulls and your prior hammer to Zand.

water or no???
# Mar 17 2001 at 3:57 PM Rating: Default
When I combine the froglok totem pieces and the mendglow clay do I need to use water? It took me forever to get all of those pieces I would prefer not to get it wrong....

No post I can find says to use water, but water is a basic in all pottery wheel uses... Im so conflicted!
RE: water or no???
# Mar 23 2001 at 5:58 AM Rating: Default
NO WATER! same as in the 2nd shaman skull quest useing mendglow clay. Tested and proven.

Zand now speaks of Goblins and mines. Go to Nurga fight an Overseer D_____ (you have to find him) and you get a Canopic of Dai Nozok (when identified it says crafted by Vok Nir. So go to Overtnere and in the Outpost there is an iksar named Galdon Vok Nir. one problem he wont talk or deal with iksar (seems he is an outcast) well if someone speaks to him that he likes you find out he can open the canopic with the 2 Dai Keys from swamp of no hope and 400gold. So now you wonder how do iksar shaman get him to do this to get the skull out. well my guess is get a really good enchanter to cast a nice charming spell on him and then do the quest. Here is to hoping. more info later im sure as people try more things.
A key hmmm.....

i don't know if this is related but once you have the key try the locked door in the basement of the shaman guild.
