This is a continuation to this

You say, 'Hail, remains of Vah Kerrath'

remains of Vah Kerrath says 'Fleshy mortal, can you not see that I am cursed to live in eternal anguish? What is it that you seek from me?'

You say, 'Am I worthy of Vah Kerrath's knowledge?'

an ancient whisperling says 'The squishy mortal has proven itself by releasing Elysian spirits. We greet the Elysian spirits to our realm and rejoice in their freedom. Go on fleshling, ask the bone man to tell you of Vex Thal.'

You say, 'Tell me of Vex Thal.'

If your faction is too low, you'll see this:

remains of Vah Kerrath says 'Begone from my sight corruptor of spirits. I will only aid my allies.'

To get higher faction with the Whisperlings, hand in four Elysian Skulls at a time:

remains of Vah Kerrath says 'You have done well. Clear your mind of all distractions and ask the whisperlings if you are worthy of my knowledge.'

Your faction standing with Whisperling has been adjusted by 5.
Your faction standing with Akheva has been adjusted by -1.
You gain experience!!

Once your faction is at high amiable:

You say, 'Tell me of Vex Thal.'

remains of Vah Kerrath says 'I will not reveal the secrets I have discovered so easily. Since I am unable to leave the protection of the whisperling circle, I will need you to aid me in releasing the Elysian spirits from their tormented states. Destroy their remains and release their spirits from the grip of the shadow curse. Return four of their skulls to me as proof of your deeds. Only then will I impart my discoveries to you.'

The way I see it. . .

Well the ancient whisperling is just there to inform you of your faction. If when you get the message from the remains of Vah Kerrath to "ask" the ancient whisperling, just have no target and ask 'Am I worthy of Vah Kerrath's knowledge?'. If your faction is good enough the ancient whisperling will say ". . . ask the bone man to tell you of Vex Thal."

Then you can ask the remains of Vah Kerrath 'Tell me of Vex Thal.' Which is the start for the Medallion of Akelha Ra quest for Talisman of Vah Kerrath which requires the Soul Essence of Aten Ha Ra from Aten Ha Ra in VT.

Wow I'm surprised no one has posted the real purpose of this quest. You have to do this quest and raise your faction to amiable before you can do this one...

...of 4 skulls (if you don't already know, 1 per slot), he says:

"You have done well. Clear your mind of all distractions and ask the whisperlings if you are worthy of my knowledge."

Now, I would ask the whisperlings that, but there doesn't seem to be anything listed on the faction.

Could there be an undiscovered part 2 of the quest? I'd say maybe broken, but its looks more like unimplemented.

Oh... my 60 druid did the turn in, and 4 skulls got me less than 1% regular xp, good hit with Whisperlings, bad hit with Akheva...like it says.

Anyone who has ever done the Frostweaver's Shield quest knows exactly what he means. The reason you can't find the NPC to ask the question to, is because the NPC is invisible and untargetable. Whisperlings are everywhere (or in actuality, the "whisperling" you're looking for is an invisible/untargetable NPC standing right next to the Remains of Vah Kerrath). What he means by "Clear your mind of all distractions" is that you must not have any target currently selected, then ask the question. If you don't believe me, look up the quest for the Frostweaver's Shield, at the part where you must speak with the whisperling near the glowing rock below Shar Vahl. The proof is right there.

So what you must do, is stand next to the Remains of Vah Kerrath, clear any target you currently have selected, and say, "Am I worthy of Vah Kerrath's knowledge?" Or something to that effect. Try out a few phrases, I can almost guarantee this will work.

**EDIT: I think the reason this quest gives whisperling faction, and that the skulls are stackable, is because you need to do this quest multiple times before you become "worthy" of continuing the quest. The whisperling faction is basically a way to measure how many skulls you have turned in so far. So when you get to ally faction with whisperlings, for instance (and this is just a guess, I don't know what faction level you must be at), you will be told by the whisperlings that you are worthy, and given instructions on what to do next. If you do not have the correct faction, you will simply be told that you are not worthy. This is all a (very) educated guess, so please do not take my word for this. I'm just giving my inferrence based on what I've learned so far. Someone who has done this quest, preferably multiple times, please go to the Remains of Vah Kerrath and try out this method, I'm almost sure it will work.

Here is the log of my conversation with Remains of Vah Kerrath, when I had apprehensive faction. (this was before turning in any skulls)

[Fri Jun 18 21:54:58 2004] Logging to 'eqlog.txt' is now *ON*.
[Fri Jun 18 21:55:12 2004] The veil fades.
[Fri Jun 18 21:55:16 2004] You say, 'Hail, remains of Vah Kerrath'
[Fri Jun 18 21:55:16 2004] remains of Vah Kerrath says 'Fleshy mortal, can you not see that I am cursed to live in eternal anguish? What is it that you seek from me?'
**I tried what I thought was the correct reponse to the skull turn-in message...**
[Fri Jun 18 21:55:23 2004] You no longer have a target.
[Fri Jun 18 21:55:33 2004] You say, 'Am I worthy of Vah Kerrath's knowledge?'
[Fri Jun 18 21:55:33 2004] an ancient whisperling says 'The squishy mortal has proven itself by releasing Elysian spirits. We greet the Elysian spirits to our realm and rejoice in their freedom. Go on fleshling, ask the bone man to tell you of Vex Thal.'
[Fri Jun 18 21:55:33 2004] remains of Vah Kerrath says 'Begone from my sight corruptor of spirits. I will only aid my allies.'
[Fri Jun 18 21:55:47 2004] You say, 'tell me of Vex Thal'
[Fri Jun 18 21:55:48 2004] remains of Vah Kerrath says 'Begone from my sight corruptor of spirits. I will only aid my allies.'

Obviously this means I need better faction with Whisperlings, so I turned in four Elysian Skulls:

[Sat Jun 19 02:22:18 2004] remains of Vah Kerrath says 'You have done well. Clear your mind of all distractions and ask the whisperlings if you are worthy of my knowledge.'
[Sat Jun 19 02:22:19 2004] Your faction standing with Whisperling got better.
[Sat Jun 19 02:22:19 2004] Your faction standing with Akheva got worse.
[Sat Jun 19 02:22:19 2004] You gain party experience!!

However, I was still apprehensive to RoVK. So I had Kllues, a bard friend of mine, use his faction song on RoVK to see if that would lighten him up. Here are the results:

[Sat Jun 19 02:27:17 2004] Kllues says, 'tell me of vex thal'
[Sat Jun 19 02:27:17 2004] remains of Vah Kerrath says 'I will not reveal the secrets I have discovered so easily. Since I am unable to leave the protection of the whisperling circle, I will need you to aid me in releasing the Elysian spirits from their tormented states. Destroy their remains and release their spirits from the grip of the shadow curse. Return four of their skulls to me as proof of your deeds. Only then will I impart my discoveries to you.'

This seemed to lead in a circle, so we tried all the phrases over again, with Kllues' amiable faction:

[Sat Jun 19 02:28:47 2004] Kllues says, 'Am I worthy of Vah Kerrath's knowledge?'
[Sat Jun 19 02:28:47 2004] an ancient whisperling says 'The squishy mortal has proven itself by releasing Elysian spirits. We greet the Elysian spirits to our realm and rejoice in their freedom. Go on fleshling, ask the bone man to tell you of Vex Thal.'
[Sat Jun 19 02:28:47 2004] remains of Vah Kerrath says 'Clear your mind and ask the whisperlings of the circle if you are worthy. They will judge your deeds for me.'

So as you can see, at the moment it all leads in a circle. My theory is that my faction, apprehensive, was simply too low for RoVK to consider me, while Kllues' faction, amiable, was high enough to be considered, but not high enough to be trusted. This is why Kllues kept being prompted to turn in more skulls, because he needed more faction to get to ally status. The next thing I plan on trying is building Kllues' whisperling faction a few levels, then having him play his faction song so that he will be allied with RoVK. The phrase I want to ask using allied faction is the clear target/"Am I worthy..?" question. The rest of the phrases have been mentioned before in outdated quests such as the Medallion of Akelha Ra, but the whisperling phrase has not been tried before, according to my knowledge anyway.

If anyone finds out anything new about this quest, please post it here.

Ok, How about the bone powder? Anyone know? I'm thinking maybe a broken or unknown Rogue poison. Anyone have any knowledge to impart? Thanks

Just turned in 8 skulls... 2 sets of 4, unstacked. Didn't even get 1% experience. I'm a level 53 Druid... pretty disappointing.

RE: skulls?

That would be Corrupted and Disturbed Elysian Remains, found near the SW corner of the zone.

Note to self. If you appear or run to the Remains in wolf form the Guardian spirits will attack. Just an FYI. Wolf form usually drops faction, but didn't figure on it being that much.
Location
# Oct 26 2003 at 12:17 PM Rating: Default
I was foolish, but I went out searching and tracking for this guy as noone deemed it necessary to post a location of him, lol ...

I found him at POS 1664, POS 100 almost dead center North sitting on the ground surrounded by Guardian Spirits. Looks like this would be the only location for him with all of the spirits in a circle, but I cannot confirm this...

I wish I had looked at my xp bar or that I had a UI with the % on it to tell you how much I got ... but for one I was scared as **** that I would get keeled, hehehe

Hope this helps!
