|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|In the Temple of Marr you can find a froglok paladin named Gubbly Gippledo (/loc?).
You say, 'Hail, Gubbly Gippledo'
Gubbly Gippledo sighs. 'Hello. I am afraid I am in no mood to talk right now, friend. I am in a lot of [trouble] right now.'
You say, 'What trouble?'
Gubbly Gippledo says ''I am afraid there is nothing you can do to help me, but if you really want to know, I will tell you my [story].''
You say, 'What story'
Gubbly Gippledo says ''I was tasked by Shin Master Grubbus of Gukta to travel here to Freeport and receive a gift from the Paladins of Marr. It was a holy ring blessed by Marr and a token of friendship between the Frogloks and the human paladins. It was of course an honor to be selected to perform such a task. I accepted the generous gift and made my way back home to Gukta. As I entered South Ro however that is when things [went terribly wrong].''
You say, 'What went terribly wrong?'
Gubbly Gippledo says ''As I entered the desert under the cover of night, a thick mist swirled about me and I could not see but a couple feet in front of me. A horrible hiss broke through the fog and the horrible visage of a ghoul darted towards me. I quickly took up my sword and dispatched the beast with little effort. Then a dreadful moaning from somewhere in the desert started. Soon it was joined by another monstrous moan, then another until I was completely surrounded by the terrible sound. The mist parted and a dark, robed figure appeared. He uttered something and hands began to erupt from the sand. Soon I was surrounded by a host of undead. They clawed and tore at me as I attempted to keep them at bay. The necromancer looked into my eyes and began chanting. His words filled me with dread. I dropped the ring and ran all the way back here. Not once stopping. I am a complete coward. I have let down my people and my God. I am sure I will be exiled for this. I doubt there is anything you can do to [help] me.''
You say, 'I will help you'
Gubbly Gippledo says ''No disrespect intended towards you friend, but I have little faith you can find the ring. However, if you wish to look for yourself, you may want to go to South Ro and see what you can find. There is also another problem. I remember the undead in the desert tearing out some of the gems as they clawed at me. Perhaps the undead still carry some of the gems. Please see if you can find three missing gems in addition to the ring. They should be easy to identify. They were specially crafted by Gukta's finest jewelers. They are a deep red in color and bear the mark of The Truthbringer. You might want to search South Ro and the Oasis for them. When you have found the ring and the three gems, please hand them to me.''
Now head to South Ro and kill all the undead until you get three Truthbringer Gems (Not lore, No Drop) which seems to be an uncommon drop. Three can be obtained in an hour or so.
At the buried tower in South Ro, the undead spawn is now outside the tower, slightly to the West. An undead mob will pop there every 6 minutes and sometimes you can find Moldrak Drin there, a level 20-24 Erudite Necro. Kill Moldrak until he drops an Unadorned Ring of Marr, which he does not drop every time.
Give the Unadorned Ring of Marr and the three Truthbringer Gems to Gubbly.
Gubbly Gippledo says ''Magnificent! You are truly an inspiring individual, Gerremiah! Now let me see about getting these gems back in place. I was a jeweler before I became a Paladin of Marr. There we go! It is almost as good as new. The other paladins here and I have been talking about this incident. We have all decided that you should keep the ring as a reward for your dedication to Marr's cause and your bravery. You are now its keeper. If you head back to Gukta, you may want to talk to Bibsy Gakdoo in Gukta. He is a master jeweler and can probably upgrade the ring for you. You might want to wait until you are more powerful however since any components used in the upgrade might be difficult to locate. When you do decide to talk to Bibsy, give him this note. It tells that the ring has been entrusted to you and that he will be compensated by the Shin Knights for upgrading it for you. May Marr bless you. I must be off to pray. Farewell, friend.''
Your faction standing with Citizens of Gukta got better.
Your faction standing with Protectors of Gukta got better.
Your faction standing with High Council of Gukta got better.
Your faction standing with Lorekeepers of Gukta got better.
Your faction standing with Guktan Elders got better.
Gubbly gives you Marr's Ring (AC4 WIS4 hps15 PAL HUM HEF FRG) and a Note to Bibsy, both No drop.
When you get to about level 35 (or find a high level friend) you can upgrade the ring by doing the Marr's Ring of Piety Quest.
