You will first need to get your Make Poison skill up to 250 and make your Grandmasters Assassin's Vial.

Then complete the Rogue Redemption quest in the Temple of Solusek Ro in order to obtain the Burning Rapier. Once you've done this, kill Lon the Redeemed and loot his head. Go to Neriak Third Gate and visit Pazin Punox.

You say, 'What dark assassin?'

Pazin Punox says 'Aye we were visited by that dark assassin, he left some sketch in my safekeeping, I would gladly give you a copy if you would take care of a problem that has been vexing me.'

You say, 'I will take care of problem that has been vexing you.'

Pazin Punox says 'An old student of mine who goes by the name Lon has disgraced this House; his betrayal to Innoruuk and Neriak is unforgivable.' Pazin grins 'He must be punished through deceit and trickery. Make him your friend, do as he asks, and pretend to be Redeemed as he calls it. Once you are Redeemed take the cursed blade of Ro and run it through his heart. Bring me his rapier and his head and I shall know the task is complete.'

Give Pazin Lon's Head and the Burning Rapier. You receive a Vein Rot Sketch.

Next, head to the Plane of Hate and get a Shrieking Ahlspeiss (uncommon off the Avatar of Abhorrence or rare off regular abhorrents). Bring this to Ysanna MacGibbon in Halas.

You say, 'What about the dark assassin?'

Ysanna MacGibbon says, 'That poor lad! I saw him in the tundra being chased by that big bear of Tundra Jack. I never liked that bear of his since the day he ate my poor dog Thunderpaw. Anyways i say Iceberg chasing the assassin and grabbed my trusty ahlspiess and threw it, aiming right for his big head. Can you believe I missed?? I hit his side instead. Iceberg ripped my ahlspiess out and ripped it into pieces and then went whining of to Tundra Jack. Serves that bear right! He ate my dog!'

You say, 'What ahlspiess?'

Ysanna MacGibbon says, 'Ahhhh my beloved shrieking ahlspiess, it was nice i was able to help a fellow assassin out but i really do miss it. The dark assassin gave me a sketch of paper he said was very valueable but it still pains me to be without my favourite throwing weapon. If you go get me another I would gladly part with this sketch.'

Next, head to Kelethin and see Expin.

You say, 'Hail, Expin'

Expin says 'How are you, my friend? You must be a [new scout of Kelethin]. I would hope so. We dearly need more recruits. Most of the Fier'Dal choose the path of the ranger.'

You say, 'What about the dark assassin?'

Expin squints at you and says, 'So you have heard about him as well? I had heard of him through the rogue grapevine, so I was wary when the home guard spoke of the arrival of a dark stranger. I was approaching him from behind and some loud ranger clompipng about in the bushes must of spooked him, for off he ran. As he was running I took the liberty to swipe a piece of paper protruding from his pocket.' Expin mumbles to himself, 'Now where did I put that note?'

You'll need to steel a Crumpled Piece of Paper. You'll need a pickpocket skill of at least 190 to do this.

Expin says 'Ahhh! You found it! Here let me make you a copy and put this in a secure spot so I don't lose it again.'
You gain experience!!

Next, head to Ak'Anon and see Lobal Postugger.

You say, 'What about the dark assassin?'

Lobal Postugger says, 'You have heard of him? I had a nice conversation with him. Sharing some secrets of gnomish spirits if yah know what i mean! In return he gave me a sketch that looks quite interesting. Of course I am stuck in this place waiting youngsters to teach when I would rather be out with you making poisons. Perhaps you are willing to make a trade with me for the sketch?

You say, 'I am willing to make a trade with you for the sketch.'

Lobal Postugger says, 'Fantastic! If you combine Rage of Incapacitation, Wasted Flesh and Dreams of Drusella within a coffin bottle you can make me a nice bundle of poisons to play with. Then I will have no need for the sketch.'

Use your Grandmaster Assassin's Seal to summon a Coffin Poison Bottle. Inside it, combine the three poisons Lobal speaks of to create a Bundle of Poisons. Turn this in to Lobal in exchange for the Dip Resist Sketch.

On to the final step: Purchase a Sketch Book from Loran Thu`Leth in the Plane of Knowledge. Combine the four sketches you've received inside it to create a Master Sketch.

If you plan to go to 350 in Make Poison

If you plan to go to 350 in Make Poison, I would recommend you make the lesser versions of the four poisons made from the interim sketches (Anger of Incapacitation, Confusing Whisper, Itching Madness, and Withering Flesh). They all count toward 350 and can only be done with the interim sketches. You can make those same poisons with the master sketch when you're done, but those combines are different. Eventually, you'll want to do both, but you can only do the interim ones as you're doing this quest (unless you want to repeat this quest again).

Ok, so I didn't get his dialog because I had already done this part, but you need to steal the crumpled note as stated above.
He gives you the Remiss Sketch as stated here:

After giving her the Shrieking Ahlspiess, she says:

Ysanna MacGibbon claps her hands and says, 'Yay! You got another one for me! I'm so happy! Here as I promised is the sketch.'
Your faction standing with Rogues of the White Rose got better.
You gain experience!!

You receive: Sluggish Sketch

Is this really needed anymore since the introduction of the new poisons? I'm working up my first Rogue and came into the game after the new poisons were introduced. I just don't see any benefit with making these older poisons. Tell me if I'm missing something. Thanks!

Old post, yah. But no, it's not needed anymore. It's worthwhile getting your assassin's vial, if you don't have any other old world trophies, because it summons a 10-slot giant 100% WR bag, you can also make permanent and is on a different lore group then the new trophy bags.
The burning rapier quest can be useful for epic 1.0. If you plan on doing that, you may as well get your master sketch, since the sketch poisons will help maxing out your trophy. I know, there's plenty of others, but the old world poisons give more experience and you don't or hardly loose money on them versus the 20-30pp vials you'll loose with the new line.

Confirmed today. Did the first part in Neriak with 221 make poison at level 53.
Also, the correct sentence is "what about the dark assassin", as mentionned for the other rogue masters int the walkthrough, otherwise Pazin won't answer.
Sketch used to make Poisons used to get sketch??

IM a bit confused here..

Ok, You need to make those advanced poisons ( Rage of Incapacitation, Wasted Flesh and Dreams of Drusella ) in order to make this Master Sketch..

BUT, the Master sketch is an ingrediant in making those poisons..

HOW are you supposed to Make the poisons using the master sketch, before you get the master sketch from making the poisions??

Sketch used to make Poisons used to get sketch??

You use one of the 3 sketches given at each steps of the quest. IE Pazin gives you the Vein Rot sketch to make Wasted Flesh, Espin the Remiss Sketch for Dreams of Drusella and Ysanna the Sluggish Sketch for Rage of Incapacitation.

Corrected the above informations that were innacurate.

Took four tries over a couple different days, but I picked the note from Expin pretty quickly once he did have it.

All turnins can be done, if you con Amiably to the NPC.

Pazin keeps the Burning Rapier when he gives you your Vein Rot Sketch.

Lon the Redeemed can be soloed by 60 necro, although I (Tyulk) killed him with 68 enchanter and 70 shaman as backup insurance. No mobs will assist Lon at zoneline. Lon can be found just inside the door at the back of the dias in the middle of 1st floor. He's in the right alcove behind the dias door.

Graylaw (my 54 rogue and proud owner of this Master Sketch) earned 7% main XP at 54th while doing the combines and turnins for this quest.

Pazin didn't give me text about an old student, he just turned to me told me i was bold to approach a member of the Ebon Mask, (I am Halfling rogue using sneak). He would not take the Head and Rapier, he kept giving them back to me. So. still sneaking, I went behind his back again and tried the turn-in. This time it worked and I got my sketch from him

Give Pazin Lon's Head and the Burning Rapier. You receive a Vein Rot Sketch.

Does Pazin give back the rapier at this point or is it then gone for good?
Have you ever seen an UGLY Troll? I think not...

You can also do the Moss Snake quest to up your faction a tad, i did it four times and it dramatically raised my faction with the DE rogues.

Warning, If you do the Moss Snake quest to get your faction here, it will also lower your Carson McCabe faction which you need to do Epic. 1.0, 1.5 and 2.0 it is the Faction Stanos is on.

My rogue has a Mask of Deception, but is still KoS to most DElves in Neriak, so having that illusion is almost worthless, unless you did nothing bad to any Delf factions.

I do not believe you can do this quest before 50. Reason being: You have to be "Flagged" for the GM trophy and have a 250 skill in Poison Making, which is not allowed until 50, since the below 50 cap is 200. I have not yet tried to find out which is the flag, the GM Trophy or the 250 Skill.

Ysanna MacGibbon - Halas hand in of shrieking ahlspies...DO NOT just hand it in like I did...if she wont respond to you with the appropriate text, you will need to find some way to Illusion yourself and or raise your faction with her or she will just eat your item /sighs

I learnt the hard way not to rush in ><

Avatar of Abhorence does NOT drop the SA all the time. I just killed him and he did NOT drop it.

Also, at level 56, the Barbarian won't respond to me
