|Master Scribe Uklo is found at -1940, +450.
You say, 'Hail, Master Scribe Uklo'
Master Scribe Uklo says 'Well met! Welcome to Gukta, the Outpost of Marr -- our new home and base of operations for our fight to remove the trolls from the rest of our beautiful swamp. The liberation of Gukta was quite a battle! Many brave Froglok warriors, a good dose of [powerful magic] and the blessings of Mithaniel Marr allowed us to cleanse this place of the vile Trolls.'
You say, 'What powerful magic?'
Master Scribe Uklo says 'Our battle wizards called many comets of ice from the sky, along with bolts of pure magical force, brutal walls of flame and even [illusions] to confuse and disorient the stupid trolls.'
You say, 'What illusions?'
Master Scribe Uklo says 'A select few of Mithaniel's chosen know the secrets of spinning illusions. This skill allowed our bravest warriors to infiltrate the Troll's defenses and ensure victory. These are some of our most closely guarded secrets. We only [teach] them to a select few so they can better aid us in our battle.'
You say, 'Please teach me.'
Master Scribe Uklo says 'You must first [prove] yourself a friend of Gukta before I will teach you our secrets.'
You say, 'How do I prove myself a friend?'
Master Scribe Uklo says 'Very well, I will put your loyalty to the test. Long ago, a great hero of our people lost his life fighting the Trolls. He was in Rathe Mountains investigating a rumor that the Trolls were stockpiling special weapons in an effort to turn the tide of war back in their favor. He was ambushed by a group of troll marauders and their captain Krignok. He fought valiantly, slaying the marauders and eventually locking swords with the captain. But in the end, exhaustion got the better of him and he died by the troll's hand. The Krignok respected the froglok's ferocity and swore that they would one day finish their fight. So through a dark ritual the troll Captain locked the froglok's spirit in his own sword and broke it into 3 pieces. One piece he placed on the [battlefield] where they fought. The other piece he gave to an [infamous troll] warrior to guard. The location of the third piece has been lost over the time but there are [clues] as to where it may be.'
You say, 'What battlefield?'
Master Scribe Uklo says 'The Mountains of Rathe hold many stories. One of them is the story of froglok warrior Chalex for this is the place where he was killed. Find the place where his bones are kept and say aloud "I wish to recover what is lost" and if you are worthy you shall receive a gift.'
You say, 'What infamous troll?'
Master Scribe Uklo says 'Gribnor is one of the strongest trolls alive, he is also one of the shortest. His strength is the reason that the Troll Captain entrusted him with a piece of the sword because he knew that it would be almost impossible for anyone to take it away from him. Last we heard Gribnor had taken up residence in Neriak Third Gate along with the rest of those vile trolls. I warn you to be careful as allies of Gukta are not welcome in the home of Innoruuk's children.'
You say, 'What clues?'
Master Scribe Uklo says 'The troll captain spent some time in the lower part of Guk. Apparently he was trying to control the undead frogs there and use them against us. His plans did not see fruition and while trying to escape he dropped the sword blade. It is rumored that another explorer found it and the power drove him insane doomed to wander the halls of Lower Guk seeking only to destroy others. I believe you will find this to be the toughest piece to retrieve.'
Go to 2585, -2040 in the Rathe Mountains. (50 minute respawn)

A ghoulish figure rises from the explorer's corpse.

Restore the Blade
Go back to Master Scribe Uklo in Gukta and give him the three pieces.
Master Scribe Uklo says 'I just can't believe that I am holding all three items. You are truly amazing. Now let me see. . . Seems the blade has been fused with some sort of material. We must remove this before the sword can be restored. I think this calls for an old recipe. Take this distiller and use it to mix some skyash bile and a pinch of drake lava powder together. You should be able to find the bile in the mountains of fire and the drake lava powder is best retrieved from fire drakes in the mountains of lava. Bring me the result and I should be able to restore this ancient weapon.'
You receive Uklo's Distiller. Kill fire drakes in Lavastorm Mountains for the Drake Lava Powder and skyash drakes in Skyfire Mountains for the Skyash Bile. Combine the powder and the bile in the distiller to create a Vial of Magical Blade Restorative. Give this to Uklo.
Uklo grins as you hand him the restorative. 'Words cannot describe what you have done. This is truly a wonderful day for our citizens. Now I can rebuild the sword and our hero can finally finish that which he started. Please, while this is more then enough proof of your loyalty, I must ask that you take this sword and place it in the remains. Return with proof that it has been done and I shall reward you with the knowledge you seek.'
You receive Marr's Retribution.
Go back to Rathe Mountains and give the blade to "a pile of froglok remains."
A spectral figure appears emanating a powerful yet ghastly aura. Warrior Spirit Chalex says 'Your kindness has given me a chance to finish that which I started. While I thank thee for restoring my blade and bringing it to me I am not worthy to wield it until I have destroyed the one who killed me. Please hold my sword until I have redeemed myself by vanquishing the vile Troll Captain Krignok. Now I must ask that you protect me, I can feel his presence close by and once again he is not alone.'
He gives you back Marr's retribution.
Warrior Spirit Chalex shouts 'Come forth coward, this time we fight on equal terms!'
Krignok's undead minions shamble towards you slowly, littering the ground with rotting flesh.
Warrior Spirit Chalex shouts 'Give it up Krignok, you are outmatched when facing a paladin of Mithaniel Marr!'
Undead Captain Krignok shouts 'Your beliefs will find you dead by my hands once again frog!'
You must hold off the minions while Chalex and Krignok do battle. Chalex will defeat Krignok after about 20-30 seconds and despawn, reappearing as Chalex the Redeemed standing next to Master Scribe Uklo.
Troll Captain Krignok says, 'I yield Chalex, you are truly a worthy opponent.' Images of the dead whip around the air as Krignok returns to the spectral world taking any of his remaining minions with him. The Warrior Spirit thanks Mithaniel for a second chance as he stands before you redeemed. He then looks at you and asks for his sword.
You say, 'Hail, Chalex The Redeemed'
Chalex The Redeemed Looks at you longingly, hand outstretched.
Give him Marr's Retribution.
As Chalex takes the sword he begins to change. Old becomes new right before your eyes as the touch of Mithaniel reshapes the warrior spirit. 'Thank you again. Your kindness has allowed my spirit to go home. Please show this to my people so they will have a memory of what you have done.'
Waving goodbye Chalex The Redeemed disappears just as quickly as he appeared.
You receive A Spectral Memory.
Go back to Uklo in the Rathe Mountains and give him the spectral memory.
Uklo kneels before you as tears of happiness roll down his face. 'I thank you. Since our creation it has been rare that we have received such kindness. You will always be welcome in our city and future generations will croak the story of your greatness. Please take this as a small token of my gratitude you have truly earned it.'
You receive Spell: Illusion Guktan.
