Note: this is extremely difficult factionwise for anyone other than a dark elf necromancer or shadowknight.

At the end of the previous quest, you heard this:

Loveal S`Nez says 'So you have succeeded where others have failed. You show promise. Take this then. You shall be a valuable asset to the Dead and soon this shall be of value to one so great. This will help you on your way. Are you still interested in my [appointed tasks]?'

You say, 'I am interested in your appointed tasks.'

Loveal S`Nez says 'Very well. You have gained the appropriate power. I require you to journey to the Commonlands and seek out Kizdean Gix. He is a member of a very important force. Tell him 'Utalk Adarev Otcin'. Remember this password.'

You say, 'What is the Thex Mallet?'

Loveal S`Nez says 'All you can know is that the Thex Mallet is desired by our Queen. If we are not successful in its retrieval, it will be our heads which adorn her trophy room. We have learned its location and believe it to be broken into three separate pieces.'

You say, 'Who is Queen Cristanos Thex?'

Loveal S`Nez says 'The Queen of the Teir'Dal is the most powerful of all. It is she who should sit on the throne and not King Naythox. The Dead are her humble servants. We await the day when she shall finally take her rightful position as ruler of Neriak.'

You say, 'Who is King Naythox Thex?'

Loveal S`Nez says 'A competent and powerful warrior, but a warrior nonetheless. He has suppressed the true glory of the Teir'Dal. Perhaps it is time for a new ruler of Neriak.'

Travel now to the western Commonlands and find Kizdean Gix near the tollbooth.

You say, 'Hail, Kizdean Gix'

Kizdean Gix says 'If you have business then out with it!! If not, then please be gone. I have little time to waste on chitchat!'

You say, 'Utalk Adarev Otcin.'

Kizdean Gix says 'You speak the words of the Dead. You must be the assistance Loveal was to send. You must work quickly! Inside Befallen are the three pieces to the [Thex Mallet] which are to be returned to Loveal. Find Hubard L'rodd. He was my assistant. Give him this note and he should have information.'

You receive "a tattered cloth note."

You say, 'What Thex Mallet?'
You say, 'What about the Thex Mallet?'
You say, 'What is the Thex Mallet?'
You say, 'Where is the Thex Mallet?'
You say, 'Where is Befallen?'
You say, 'Who is Hubard L'rodd?'

No response to any of these.

Travel to Befallen. Inside, near the well, you will find Skeleton Lrodd. Give him the note.

skeleton Lrodd says 'Search!! Find Windstream. Find the mallet!! One. Two. Three.'

Handing in the note will spawn Cmdr Windstream on level 3. Kill him, and he will drop the "Mallet Stem."

You have slain Cmdr Windstream!
Your faction standing with Burning Dead got worse.

Cmdr Windstream and the other Befallen necromancers are now on Burning Dead faction.

Kill An Elf Skeleton. It will drop "Mallet Head" and "Mallet Hilt." Put the Mallet Head and Mallet Hilt inside the Mallet Stem and hit Combine. This will complete the Thex Mallet.

Journey back to Neriak 3rd Gate and give the mallet to Loveal S`Nez.

Loveal S`Nez says 'Oh how grand it is!! Look at it!! I feel the power trembling within. Who would have thought such an item would be abandoned? You have performed supremely. Queen Cristanos shall reward me greatly and I shall reward you greatly. Here is my weapon from years past.. the Reaper of the Dead. I believe it has one soul still trapped within.'

Your faction standing with The Dead got better.
Your faction standing with Queen Cristanos Thex got better.
Your faction standing with King Naythox Thex got worse.
Your faction standing with Keepers of the Art got worse.
Your faction standing with Eldritch Collective got worse.
Your faction standing with Primordial Malice got worse.
You gain experience!!

Yes, I have finally finished this quest, not too long after starting I may add... Best part of tryin this quest, was that when I first read about this quest, I was trying to find a quicker way to get the skellie forman to spawn, well found out about the quest, went out to kill Gix, only to find it's the wrong letter, lol... But when I came back in to take my main downstairs, as Gix wouldn't give me the note with my main, had to make a puppet in order to get Gix to give the letter, so I go in with my main to hop down the hole and get in position to take out Cmdr... Well I walk in, see a excavator and kill him, bang! chat box says that the skelly foreman says his little warning that he's in the zone, get the bridle and head to freeport as I would have to camp to get the puppet in... Plus it's patch night, so I'd lose it if I stayed on anyways...

Took a few elf skellys to get the two other parts, but it's done... Gonna have to sell it though as I don't have anything that could use it, but hey, it's completed quest, lol...

I just Finished The quest pretty fun. I returned thex mallet to whats his face in the lodge of the dead and got the reaper of the dead. Looks like an ok weapon but im thinking of selling it at the bazaar on kane bale server. Any suggestions on how much, or should I give it to a vendor they will give me 10pp. Note If you jump down the well after handing the skelly the note you can get right to cmndr windstream. also on lvl 3 there is a locked door. I didnt have the key just meditate and the elf skellys come right through. I got both peices this way kinda funny, but it worked
I Love Being evil =)
locked doors

I am doing the quest now any help would be appreciated. Im at the befallen and i gave the note to the right skelly and just curious how do you get through the locked doors to get to the other levels

on each level you will find a npc shadowknight who drops the key to get through the door to the next lvl down. the shadowknights in the lower levels drop not only the key for the next door but also the key for each of thre doors previous, so an alternative to hacking your way all the way down is to jump down the well that Llrod stands next to which takes you all the way to the bottom, where you can kill (along with the quest mobs) the ogre SK who will drop the keys to all three doors so you can get back out.

I just got the final piece to this quest today. Not sure if this helps anyone but a couple of pieces of info for anyone tring to do this quest. First off Kizdean Gix is a Dark Elf Necro. I didnt know this while looking for him becuase for my Race a human pally he arrgoed me right away. He seems to be a bit of a undercon at lvl 30 non twinked he took 3 and 1/2 bub of health off of me. If you kill him he drops the note as loots so if you cant talk to him you can still do this quest. I took the note to Skelton Lrodd and handed him the note again not sure if it was becuase of my faction or race he would not accept the note. Much to my suprise Cmdr Windstream spawnd anyways just from attempting to give him the note. I hope this helps anyone who isnt exactly sure what to expect from every NPC in the game.

Ok, I did this quest on Brell yesterday. Here is the skinny.

Go down to the third floor of Befallen, inside the secret corridor. The secret chamber is almost straight across from the door on the left as you come in through the locked door. You might have to strafe for it a little bit. Right when you go in there will be a chair in the hall. This is where Commander Windstream spawns. Camp out and either jump on a DE alt or make one up right quick. (I was lucky enough to have a little nec in the neighborhood.)

Take your DE to WC. As soon as you zone in /shout I am here to do the Gix quest please do not kill him! at least twice. Go to Gix and tell him the magic words utalk adarev otcin. He will give you a note and tell you to go to Llrod.

This is where having a nec is nice, ie. IvU. Run to Llrod, he is in the second door on the right, all the way back by the well. Give him the note and, if you are low level, run yer **** out of Befallen or camp immediately.

Jump back on the char down in Befallen and kill the Cmdr. He had spawned and was already killed in the time it took me to switch chars, but luckily the guys who killed him gave me the combining piece. I was amazed it was not No Drop. Now, wait for the elf skeleton to spawn. He spawns right inside the third locked door. I just went around slaughtering silly undead and necros while waiting. I got lucky and had both pieces in two spawns. Put the head and hilt in the combining piece and Voila! Thex mallet.

One piece of advice, make an inv hotkey to put at least the third door key in. All the ghouls, necros, ice bone, and elf skeletons are runners, and for some reason do not deem it necessary to open locked doors when they go through. But if you spend enough time down there you will learn their pathing when they run, it is pathetically predictable.

I did this quest with a 31 war and 9 nec.

Has anyone done this Quest reecently? My shadow knight has completed the Sir Lindeal's Quest and Loveal S'Nez has given me the password to deliver to Gix. I have found Gix, said password - absolutly no response at all from Gix. Anyone have any ideas? Any help would be greatly appreciatted, Thank You.

you have to TALK to Gix to get the right note from him, and hand it to "skeleton Llrod" but you've gotta be a DE necro to get the zombie to spawn. What is the reward if you hand in the mallet, as the ring of the dead is now removed?

ok it tells you how to get the thex mallet, not the reaper of the dead. does the thex mallet have complete heal? if not, what do i do to get the reaper of the dead?i think that the complete heal would be great for decreasing downtime between soloing!well, any information on the subject would be appreciated thank you.

THE Quest is not broken, when you hand Llrodd the note, a named zombie on the 3rd floor spawns behind hidden wall, kill him and he drops one of the 3 pieces u need for mallet.

The note you get from Gix's body is not the same one you get from talking to him. That's what you are doing wrong.
You have to actually have the right faction and talk to him.

Be sure to have a DE Necro hand the note to Lrodd.

That's the key to getting this quest done.

Cmdr Windstream ... Not a piece of cake !
# Apr 30 2001 at 6:40 AM Rating: Default
Be warned, if you want to do this quest, that you have to kill Cmdr Windstream, which was red to me (lvl 23 at that time) and blue to a 34 rogue.
That would make him level 26 or 27, certainly not 24-25, as it is said in the bestiary.
( )

Getting the other stuffs are ok for lvl 20+ ppl, and you could solo everything at 23, maybe less if you are a paladin or a cleric.
I was very lucky to have the two Mallet parts from just two elf skeletons, that spawned in 5 minutes. :)
I then made a DE Necro puppet for getting the note from Gix, bring him to Befallen, logged my main to clean the road to Lrodd, log again my puppet, handled the note to Lrodd and finally logged back my main character to finally see on track (Ranger) that I couldn't kill Cmdr Windstream.
I was lucky to find two ladies from a nice guild (/hug *Knights of the Griffin* of Drinal) who killed that mean zombie for me.

All in all, it's not an easy task and I am not sure the reward is appropriate for the pain.
Maybe in PvP or if you want to resist those painful "fear2" casted by every single necro in Befallen.
I will also try again some evil eyes with this mallet on, just to see if they can waste me again.
(I hate Evil Eyes ;) ).

# Feb 16 2001 at 10:30 AM Rating: Default
I have attempted to do this quest a number of times with friends of mine, and all of them have had difficulty with this part...
Here's the secret: the note Gix drops is part of the burning rapier quest, written in goblin, and is almost definitely NOT the same as the one he gives you when you tell him the password!
Getting on right now to test this theory out.. but I'll repost to let you know.
# Feb 14 2001 at 10:35 AM Rating: Default
Does anyone know if this quest still works? I got the same result as the anonymous WTF earlier... give Llrodd the note, nothing happens. I had warmly faction with Llrodd, too...

The mallet is a nifty lowbie item for pvp.
Just put it into the range slot and voila!
Thex Mallet
# Jan 28 2001 at 11:07 AM Rating: Default
1) You don't have to do the lindeal quest.

2) The quest is really only doable at level 25 or higher.

3) The only "hard" part of the quest is having to kill 125 elf skels to get the mallet hilt. The head seems to drop off every other skel. Plus he has a dreadbone ph that pops 3-4 times in a row sometimes. Good thing it is a 6 minute spawn!
Mallet Pin?
# Dec 17 2000 at 4:16 PM Rating: Default
I just did this quest last night. There is no Mallet Pin. However, there is a Mallet Head and it does combine correctly with the Mallet Hilt and Mallet Stem to form the Thex Mallet.

A simple trade to Loveal gained me the Reaper of the Dead. I hadn't even seen Lindeal.

Is there anyway to recharge the Reaper if you use the Complete Heal?

True Uluhtc
# Aug 13 2000 at 6:13 PM Rating: Decent
Yeah I agree w/ you Uluhtc. This has to be one of the most used phrases in Sci-Fi. It was first used in "The Day the World Stood Still" and in Army of Darkness it was that keyphrase for the book. Also, in Return of the Jedi, 3 of the alien thug species in Jabba's Throne Room where called Klatu, Barada and Nikto =)
Minimum Level?
# Jul 11 2000 at 8:59 PM Rating: Decent
I went Gix sometime ago and said the key word. But nothing happened. Around level 15 at the I was too low for him to give me the rest of the info? Notice what the words say when spelled backwards? Too funny. These guys spent too many nights watching old sci-fi... or maybe Army of Darkness.

# Jul 11 2000 at 3:18 PM Rating: Decent
You don't even have to talk to Loveal. Just go to WC and say the [keyword] to Kizdean. I would suggest to camp the elf skellies first to get the mallet head and hilt. Then go back to 1st Lvl and Llrod, once you hand that to Llrod go down to 3rd floor, he spawns right at the entrance to the secret room, so you will get hit before you see him. But no, you don't have to do the first part of the quest.
Just wondering..
# Jul 08 2000 at 9:01 AM Rating: Decent
do you have to complete the first part of the quest before trying to get the reaper? some quest allow you to skip a step but others won't. if you don't have to complete the Sir Lindeal's Quest then i would like to do this quest for a low lvl sk )
Nice item to have...
# Jul 01 2000 at 3:36 AM Rating: Default
This item is worthless by the time you can get it. But it's handy to carry around in your backpack... duel an unsuspecting Pally and wait for them to break out their LOH... They will get really nervous when you pull the same stunt on them with the Reaper of the Dead. =)
