You say, 'Hail, Margyn McCann'

Margyn McCann says 'Hail, young adventurer! I'm the chief overseer o' the Shamans o' Justice. We serve the will o' the Tribunal. Justice is our way. Within Halas, there are none who are above the scales o' justice. There are still some who have defied our laws. We wish to [apprehend the fugitives].'

You say, 'I will apprehend the fugitives'

Yes, it has been easier just to buy the spell for a long time now, but back in the old days, quests like this that gave you a spell scroll or a bit of armor that was only slightly better than cloth or patchwork was a godsend. Money was hard to come by and even harder to keep, as were decent drops. You had to bust your butt in a level 50 dungeon to get a piece of armor that was not much better than leather and maybe had a minor stat or two on it. For casters, keeping their spell books up to date was a challenge as spells start to get expensive early on and unless you had a good spot to farm platinum, gems or something else that could be sold for good money, you were always behind your level in spells. Quests that gave up free spells meant you could use your money for something else you needed. You really have to experience what this game was like long ago to understand.

Just wanted to say that this quest is still working correctly as of June 23, 2008. My lvl 38 Barbarian Shaman was on her way to Permafrost when she was aggroed by two orcs. While fighting the orcs she cast Gale of Poison (area effect) and, by chance Granin happened to be walking close enough to get hit. The spell killed all three mobs. My shaman looted the head from Granin and two wrath orc bracers from the orcs (I already had two on me). She completed several guests in one trip! What a great day!

In the old world not everyone always had a bank of platinum for every spell, especially when they started costing a few platinum each towards level 8+

Took me a few hours of wandering back and forth south of Permafrost but I finally found him. Twice in quick succession even. Both times he was at about 500, -6000. In other words, a little bit east of the Stone Giant Statue. He seems to spawn pretty quickly (saw him again around 5-10 minutes after killing him), but the orcs kill him as soon as they see him.

Grettings! Just wanted to let you guys know, I hunted the plains from levels 5 to 8, 12 to 16, 26 to 32, and now at 46 i periodicly head through the plains helping newbies on my way to Permafrost... i've NEVER seen this guy. Sorry to bash any dreams, but thought i'd let you know.

Greetings, all!

I've hoped to complete this quest with my 11th-level shaman, but have had little luck so far. (I have to play solo most often, and won't long survive in that area of Everfrost w/o a great many cats and orcs and such aggroing on me--and, even when I do survive and med back up, I'm not in a good position to hunt Grannin down.)

So, I planned on heading for Wisp Isle--hey, that's what so many of us do at 11, isn't it?--and then come back to look for Grannin at 14. My questions:

1. Is there a point or level beyond which Margyn won't give me the quest? (I've read in some places that you have to be below level 12, but no one I know has been able to confirm that.)

2. Does anyone have any further advice--in addition to what's already been offered here--for completing the quest?

Thanks!

He travels along the SE edge of the Everfrost zone, between the southern end of the river and the Permafrost entrance. I ran into him twice there this weekend, approximate loc was neg 500, neg 6500. Just look for a naked barbarian who is walking (not running) along the wall.

So when can u use this spirit of bear spell?
and does the bear form look exactly like the one shamans get at lvl 55 ?
RE: Invi
# Feb 26 2001 at 7:33 AM Rating: Default
It's NOT bear form, it's a STA buff and it's a 8th lvl spell.

It's under "Raised Factions" and "Lowered Factions" in the quest info..scroll up and look

RE: Faction
# Apr 10 2001 at 5:41 AM Rating: Default
Actually the factions listed here are for doing the quest not necessarily the faction hits you take when killing him.

They are probably the same factions but not always. There are quests you can do where your quests "mark"(person you need to kill) is of different factions than the ones you gain for the quest itself.

Does this guy even spawn?

My secondary is now 16th level. I've been doing fly-by's out to the statue in Everfrost looking for Granin O'Gill pretty steadily for the past 4-6 weeks, and nothing. Even when I sit out there for a bit, nothing.

Where *exactly* does this fella hang out, and is he a triggered spawn?

He spawns in the SW corner of the zone. He is about lvl 5 or so and lasts about 2 seconds before orcs or cats kill him.

I completed this quest with a Lvl 7 shaman. Granin was kind of a tough fight, but I didn't really have too much difficulty with him. As for getting to the area, most stuff out there will leave you alone, just be careful and take a wide path around any orcs or snow leopards.

By the time you're high enough level to get to where Granin hangs out, you've already got the Spirit of the Bear spell.

I meant thank you. It's ridiculous that Shaman who live, die, and make money by the contents of their spell book, would wait until 13 to obtain level 9 spells. That's like asking a ranger to quest for his first bow at level 10. C'mon! by 8 I had bought EVERY lvl 9 spell and by 13 I plan to have every 14 spell. This Quest would have been more appropriate for a level 14 scroll.
