At the end of the previous quest, Tilbok Furrunner had more work for you to do...

You say, 'Hail, Tilbok Furrunner'

Tilbok Furrunner says 'Hello there, ______. 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. '

You say, 'What chambers?'

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 got better.
Your faction standing with Katta Castellum Citizens got better.
Your faction standing with Magus Conlegium got better.

Your faction standing with Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Hand of Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Eye of Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Hand Legionnaries got worse.
You gain party experience!!

You say, 'What kind of 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. '

You say, 'What is the Arx Key?'

Lcea Katta says 'The Arx Key, yes. I have read the compiled reports that have been brought to us and it seems to gain access to Arx Seru you need four shards, one from each Praesertum leader. When the time is ready each leader inserts their shard into the door of Arx Seru at the same time, and they are transported within the building. We need you to retrieve the four shards. When you have done so seek out Elnerick Augustleaf, and tell him that you serve Katta. His powers over the arcane are great and I believe he can form the shards into a single master key. Once you have received the Arx Key, place the seal given to you by Elnerick and your Runed earring in this jewel box and give it to me. I eagerly await your return. '

Find Elnerick Augustleaf at +135, +160.

You say, 'Hail, Elnerick Augustleaf'

Elnerick Augustleaf says 'Greetings ______. I am Magistrate Elnerick Augustleaf of Katta Castellum and the Loyalist Empire. If it is arcane knowledge that you seek you have come to an excellent place to study. Not only do we have wondrous magical resources available at the Magus Conlegium but the teachings of Tsaph Katta are well known to all of our citizens and aid in preparing the mind for the freedom of thought and mental and emotional discipline needed to become a great wizard.'

You say, 'I serve Katta.'

Elnerick Augustleaf says 'Ah, I was told you would come. I hope that you have retrieved the shards from each Praesertum Leader? Please show them to me.'

Hand the 4 shards to Elnernick.

Elnerick Augustleaf takes the four shards and places them on the table. Slow incantations and streams of mana flow from him. The shards begin to move across the table towards each other until they fuse into one. 'I have focused each shard into one single key. The magic holding it together is strong but the enchantment will fade over time. You will must use it wisely for it will deteriorate with use. Lcea has requested I give you this seal to prove your service to this city. Take the seal and the Arx Key, I hope that you can accomplish what you are about to be asked. May your service to this town never be forgotten.'

Your faction standing with Concilium Universus got better.
Your faction standing with Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Heart of Seru got worse.

You gain experience!!

You receive an Arx Key (unlimited charges of group gate into the Arx) and a Seal of Katta.

Place the seal and your Runed Earring of Veracity into the jewelbox that Lcea gives you and give the jewelbox back to Lcea for the 4th earring and and the lead-in for the quest for the Sigil Earring of Veracity.


Lcea Katta says, 'Amazing! I had no doubt in your loyalty to Katta but I underestimated your ability to actually accomplish getting the Arx Key. Now that you have this key you must know what I ask of you next. Seru must be defeated, if there will ever be peace in Katta and truth spread among the people of Sanctus Seru. Destroy this vile betrayer, bring me his head, and your Signet Earring. Go now before they have time to retaliate your previous attacks!'
Your faction standing with Concillium Universus has gotten better!
Your faction standing with Seru could not possibly get any worse!
Your faction standing with Heart of Seru has gotten worse!

Does the Arx key poof after ten uses, or does it just show zero charges?

I ask because the quest walk thru says ten charges at the end.

However, the item appears to not have any charges listed, suggesting unlimited charges.

Took a group of level 76 toons on these yesterday. It was easy enough to do, with a shaman, necro, and enchanter in the group. In most cases, just healed the pet with the aggro (necro pet).

Vantorus and Matpa were easy enough to target for the pets, both were in plain view after opening the respective doors.

Bikun and Rhugol were both off to one corner of their respective rooms. Bikun I think to immediate left and Rhugol to the immediate right. Had to do a quick dash into the room and target with an F8 and dash back out again before I could get aggro'd and banished. An Eye of Zomm or other remote viewing spell would have been handy but not necessary.

we have been farming seru of late for horses... so we decided to get another person a portal key. not sure about if we could just do the handin for the key i decided to go ahead and just turn them in without doing the first 3 earring quests and sure enough i got the key and the seal saving me a little bit of the day from having to do the first few quests for the ear.. just wanted to clarify that you can just do the turn in and get your portal key

This is incorrect, each shard may not be turned into Elnerick for a key, all 4 must be turned in to obtain the key. Also, this quest may be multiquested.

Need a pet class, his banish proc is near instantaneous, and he doesn't summon you back. It appears to wipe aggro. Then again, I never lasted long enough to do enough damage for him to summon before I was banished.

Pet class required. I did it with the help of a shaman friend. He sent his pet in, slowed. Eventually, very carefully doted while I as a 75 pally healed the pet.

The only time we had difficulty was on Praesertum Bikun who is immune to slow and flurries a lot and enrages. I was skirting OOM, and shaman had to keep pet healed (risking aggro).

70 Beastlord and 70 Cleric - About a 30 min fight each. Cleric Easily kept the pet up and beastlord occasionaly slowed (making sure not to pull agro) and dotted.

Kill all 4 Praesertums this way.

Got the Blacksmith belt and a horse (two of the rarer drops). And the Praesertums always drop the shard so just need to kill them once for each arx key you are doing.
Key Quest
# Sep 12 2005 at 6:36 AM Rating: Decent
We finished this today..Hope this helps someone even tho Lord Seru is not one of the most popular raid mobs the key is necessary to get in to kill him. Lord Seru was not up today but we finished the key.

There are 4 npcs you have to kill. We did this one grouped at first, more joined later but wasnt nessecary. Ideal group for these is
Cleric, mage, Beastlord or 2 (?), Enchanter and any other pet class to make up the rest.
Everyone should check thier faction at the zone in, if it's bad it becomes a challenge.
Preferrably the mage should have good faction, he can then just run straight through and CoH everyone to the adjoining empty room. When you get CoH'ed with bad faction invis first or you will aggro the other mobs thru the doors and they bring a lot of friends with them. These were all mostly dark blue to us at 70th level.

If the mage doesnt have good faction you can invis your group and run through but be warned there are a couple along the way who see invisible. At that point you will need to fight your way up or at least fight a few mobs and then reinvis. If anyone in your party dies on the way you can drag them to an empty room before the port up to 4th floor and rez there.

To get to the NPC rooms run in from the zone line. ON the map there are 5 square structures in the middle section. The 4 buildings in the corners are where they are.
Run in the building, go up all the stairs. There is a sort of spiral stair then a divided stairway, you can go either way, the a short stairway to either side. Once there find the short corridor, usually the second turn once you've gone up the short stairway and run down that hall. There is a npc standing at the wall, click on the wall behind them to port up the 4th floor. Run around the floor until you come to the largest open area and a door with 2 guards standing in front of it. That room will be empty. It has a table inside and nothing else. This is where you want to CoH your group. Stay to the side of the room and away from the doors on both sides because mobs DO aggro thru the walls.
The door to the back of the room is where the named NPC is located and he is alone.
After you are buffed and ready to go, have one person who is NOT kos target him, everyone else assists for the target. Send only the pets to attack and the cleric keeps the pets healed with HoT's' during the fight. They dont hit very hard but have a lot of HP so it takes a few minutes. At 10% health have the enchanter mind wipe the mob and STOP HEALING unless you arent worried about faction hits. If you have good faction and kill one of these mobs, you are immediately kos. After the mind wipe as long as you do not heal or touch him there is no faction hit. The Mage pet should stop attacking just before the mind wipe also so he does not become Kos or the coh is hard to do from that point.
If someone in your party gets attacked and you arent kos dont heal or help them or you will take faction hits. The guards outside are a small percentage of faction compared to the named. If the named aggro's on you or a party member you will be banished to the jail, the mage can Coh you back to the room or you can gate out.
Once the mob is dead remain in the room, there are no repops for quite awhile and have the non KoS mage run to the next building and Coh everyone to there and start over again.

Repeat the same steps for the othere 3 mobs.
We got all the drops except for the horses. I think those are possibly rare. Good luck and hopefully this was helpful to someone.

Question, since this is the mini quest for the Sigil Earring of Veracity, am I correct in thinking that you DO NOT have to do this part of the quest if somebody else has already done it? You would just get ported into The Arx without having your own key. Right?

Actually, no.

The exp comes from turning in the sealed bag of the 4 consillium reports. The person who typed this up has got it kinda screwed up. "What chambers" is the line from the last earing, and they put it here so that you can get him to say the last thing he said to you. I did it that way... I said "what chambers" and then turned in my bag and the earring.

I guess at one point you could get exp... but they changed it cause people were taking advantage of it.

Warning. So you've just killed a Praesertum, looted your shard and someone asks to dual to use their OT hammer to gate out. Yell NO, STOP. At the moment one player hits another the entire floor (and maybe even the floor below) aggros. They kill the dualists then anyone else in the room who is KOS. And since you just killed a prae, that's most of you. The rogue and I that survived the massacre counted twelve mobs. Why they didn't run in to help their leader is a mystery.

If all you want is the Arx Key, then I don't believe you need to do the earring quests. But if you want the later earrings, you'll need to do the earlier ones.

Respawn on the Praesertums appears to be about three days, and I've never seen one die without dropping a shard. I understand the shards were a rare drop at one point, but that appears to have changed.

This earring has 10 charges of group gate into the arx, can this be recharged somehow? I'm guessing you would have to do the quest over--which could be a pain. Not that someone would go there that many times and be the only one with the key. Just wondering.

This information is from The Wild Knights Guild Board. It was posted by Maldian the Sword Bearer of the Wild Knights, Rathe server.

This seems to be a coldain ring - like quest that require faction work for both Seru and Katta, and iirc last rewards give you a "key" allowing you to entre the arx to kill Lord Inquisitor Seru.
What I find interesting is the stats on the 4th earring:

Torsten Reidan says 'His name was Bregun Dorey. What a funny little halfling he was. He had a good heart and worked hard. That is up until one day he just started acting odd, very nervous like he was hiding something. Then all he would talk about was Bixie Treats and then show off some weird heirloom charm bracelet. His time for the question came and due to his odd behavior he was sent to Marus Seru. I sure wish I knew how he was doing.

Head out to Marus Seru and fine Reotho at one of the Recuso camps:


You say, 'Where is Bregun Dorey?'
Reothe says 'Bregun Dorey... I have not heard that name in many years. I will never forget it. He was very unique, always running around with an odd metal hat on. He swore that it would keep out the mind probing magics of the Question. I know where he was last seen, and I will tell you if you help by getting us some [supplies].
You say, 'What supplies?'
Reothe says 'Get me two Bark Potions, a Spring Crystal, and a Harvest Crystal. I will tell you where I last saw him headed. If you buy them in Sanctus Seru do not tell them you are giving aid to the Recuso or you shall be prosecuted as well.


Head back into Seru, get him what he wants and hand it in:


Reothe says 'This is great! We can treat our ingured and have something to eat for weeks. I can vaguely recall Bregun heading towards the Lair of the Netherbians. You might ask a guard there if they have seen him.
You gain experience!!

You say, 'Where is Bregun Dorey?'
Legionnaire Dalini says, 'Yeah maybe I know Bregun. You know, I sure am thirty with all this guard work I am doing. I know what I want, some Dawnshroud Cider! Yeah, go fetch me a cider and we will see if I remember anything when you get back.

Vantak Mere sells Dawnshroud Cider for 52pp at loc 830, neg 600 in S.Seru.


Legionnaire Dalini says, 'Ahhh! That is the stuff! Yeah I saw the halfling with the crazy hat. He runs around in the caverns, hanging out with the Troglodytes. It seems he somehow befriended them, I guess they enjoy his madmen antics.

You say, 'Hail Bregun Dorey'

Bregun Dorey says, 'Trog trog trog trog?'

You say, 'Trog'

Bregun Dorey says, 'Ha! What are you talking about?! Strange thing you are. Wait a minute, come closer. Are you from Norrath?

You say, 'I am from Norrath'

Bregun Dorey says, 'I thought so, you armor looks to be made from things found not here. Have you heard of Rivervale?


You say, 'I have heard of Rivervale'

Bregun Dorey says, 'Good.

Say 'Good' and he he will respond and tell you he wants 4 Bixie Crunchies. When you give him the crunchies you get a bixie charm give to torsten and run back to dorey again handing himt he note torsten sent

[Thu Feb 07 06:37:52 2002] Bregun Dorey says 'Trog trog trog trog? '
[Thu Feb 07 06:38:01 2002] Bregun Dorey says 'Hahaha! Silly Torsten. Always snooping over my shoulder. Well I have nothing to lose... take this to him, it's directions on how to find the Journal I kept. I hid it where no one would look! Haha! Trog trog trog! '
[Thu Feb 07 06:48:00 2002] Torsten Reidan pulls out a hollow book entitled 'A Detailed Look at Etiquette and Proper Grammar' and opens it to find a journal placed inside. 'This is astounding. The information in this journal is invaluable and must be brought to the others attention. Take this insignia. When you are ready to help us further seek out Euzan Jurek, tell him you were sent by me, and he will tell you what you can do to further our cause. I can not tell you more than this, but keep the insignia close to you for now.' '

Changing the records will make the question pass over us so that we avoid being discovered. Go in stealth, when you have completed this task bring me back the original records and your Insignia Earring. '

saying consillium gets you a general response everyone tells you

Give the replacement files to the File Cabinet, you get back the old records and a guard spawns and attacks you, I got killed but no matter still had the records. Take the old records to Euzan and he rewards you with the 2nd earring.

Tilbok Furrunner is located @ neg144, neg1971.

He is in the large castle on the second floor.

Tilbok Furruner 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.'

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 head into 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.

When the time is ready each leader inserts their shard into the door of Arx Seru at the same time, and they are transported within the building. We need you to retrieve the four shards. When you have done so seek out Elnerick Augustleaf, and tell him that you serve Katta. His powers over the arcane are great and I believe he can form the shards into a single master key. Once you have received the Arx Key, place the seal given to you by Elnerick and your Runed earring in this jewel box and give it to me. I eagerly await your return. '

Actually you dont need a single faction at all! Ive done the first three earrings with KoS faction to both Katta and Seru. Just have to have mad invis skills (the whole quest can be done with indif faction, so using the invis trick works, and for key phrases you have to say, be super fast about it, type the phrase, click off invis, and have an instant-cast invis pot to reinvis before they react, it works, I tried it)

4 shards from house leaders = Arx key, Agustleaf gives you a seal that you put into the box Lcea gives you along with your other earring = Signet earring (the 15stat one) then you get seru's head (by killing seru duh) and give Lcea the Signet earring and Seru's head = Sigil earring of Veracity the last earring. (25 to some stats)

RE: Heads of concillium

They are the heads of each of the Consilliums in Sanctus Seru. Their names are:

Praesertum Vantorus
Praesertum Bikun
Praesertum Rhugol
Praesertum Matpas

I'm not sure who belongs to what Consillium (we haven't gotten this far with the quest yet) but here are the locs for each:

Heart Consillium - Lictor of the Heart - neg 727 neg 624 pos 122
Hand Consillium - Signifier of the Hand - neg 839 pos 62 pos 122
Eye Consillium - Vigilum Cohortis - neg 124 neg 643 pos 122
Shoulders Consillium - Custos Armorum - neg 19 pos 67 pos 122

hope these help.

I don't quite recall who it was, or what the phrase was, but I know it's been fixed. There was a guy in the magus building in Katta who would give you faction for saying a key phrase. You could easily get multiple faction hits for it.

Might be worth mentioning, that each of the four minibosses drop quite good loot. Seen a variety of nice loot, including Silk Bridal (Very fast horse) and a 2hs axe with very good stats and nice look. Inside the boss drops among other things an Ornate Chain Bridal (Very, very fast horse).

A disturbing fact is the sheer boredom of these encounters though, speaking as a wizard. Spent what seems an eternity doing TL's during combat, far away from the massacre itself :/

No, the shards aren't for the earring I don't think. I am pretty sure you need to kill the smae mobs, but instead you need to collect a report (?) for each one, or something like that. Anyways, andyone know the ratity on the shards?

For the third earring you need a report from each of the concilliums that drops randomly from the guards in each concillium. For the fourth earring you need the shards that drop from the head of each concillium which also results in the Arx key. For the fifth earring you need the head of the Lord Inquisitor Seru.
