Talk to L`diava Rexxen

L`diava Rexxen may be found near Fezbin Fizzles at -35, +60, with whom you must have already completed the preflagging to accomplish this step of the quest.

You say, 'Hail, L`diava Rexxen'

L`diava Rexxen says 'Yes, yes. What is it I can do for you? I am a very busy woman and do not have a moment to waste on just anyone. Are you one of the adventurers sent here by Fezbin?'

You say, 'Yes.'

L`diava Rexxen says 'Very good. You are just in time. I am in need of immediate assistance in the temple areas known as [Yxtta] and the [frightful temple], Kod'Taz. While our scouts have been missing for quite some time, I recently received some information that leads me to believe they may still be alive. Which one we help first is up to you. Which area do you wish to investigate?'

You say, 'What frightful temple?'

L`diava Rexxen says 'Kod'Taz is made up of multiple temples that were once used for worship by the trusik natives. Many of them have since been destroyed or made into strongholds for the Muramite army. Due to the sheer size of this area, we sent a scouting force there to investigate. All of them are still alive, save one, named Kitren Lanom. None of the scouts left in the area know what happened to her or her belongings. Last time they remember seeing her was when she entered the Temple of Tri-Fates in an attempt to pass the temple trial. Please go to Kod'Taz and speak to Kevren Nalavat. He should be able to help you access the three trials. You will have to enter each trial and bring me back anything you find of Kitren's from each temple. Even though the scouts there have searched many times for something, I think a fresh set of eyes may help some. Kevren is the only one who knows you are helping me. Please do not let the others know you were sent by me. I have not yet ruled out the possibility of foul play and if they are aware of your affiliation, it may place you in more danger.'

Kitren's Tattered Cloak may be found in A Pile of Bones, the reward chest at the end of the third Ikkinz trial. Give it to L`diava.

L`diava Rexxen says 'Oh, thank you brave adventurer. We are now one step closer to finding out what happened to Kitren. Now, give me one second to look through the cloak here and . . . here it is, Kitren's notebook. There must be some information here that can help us more. While I read through this, I need you to return to Kevren Nalavat. He believes he may have found more clues to Kitren's whereabouts and since you did such a good job with the trials he believes you may be able to help him. Even though you have proven yourself by defeating the trials, he will not give you what I need unless you help him. When you return to him, show him this letter and it will confirm my trust in you. Hurry now. There no time to waste!'

You receive a Sealed Note. Find Kevren Nalavat at 1020, -1040 and give him the note from L`diava.

Kevren Nalavat says 'Seems you have made quite an impression if you are trusted by L`diava. But don't think that this means you do not have to gain my trust. While you survived the three trials I am still in need of assistance, I some [other tasks] completed, when you have finished them please return to me and tell me you have done all I asked and I will give you what you came here for. If you do not wish to start these tasks right now we do have some time to talk a little [more].'

Asking about the "other tasks" leads you to the standard Kod'Taz flag progression. You do need to complete some of that progression to get the Kod'taz reward:
  • You've recovered important glyphs from the Temple of the Damned!
  • You've successfully translated the glyphs you found in the Temple of the Damned!
  • You were able to recover a rare artifact from the Grand Summoner's goons in the Summoning Circle!
  • You've returned four relics from the Martyrs Passage!
  • You've returned valuable information as to why the Muramites are in the Martyrs Passage!
After doing that:

You say, 'I have done all you asked.'

Kevren Nalavat says 'Indeed you have and your help is greatly appreciated. Take this back to L`diava I believe it has the answers she seeks.'

You receive a Sealed Confession. Take it back to L`diava.

L`diava Rexxen says 'Once again, a job well done. I hear you accomplished the tasks with flying colors. Now let's see what this says. Hm . . . this changes everything. I never suspected something like this, but now that I know, it all makes sense to me. Oh poor Kitren, why didn't you warn me first? Please leave me be. I must take sometime to think. Take this as proof of your accomplishments in Kod'Taz. It possesses a power that you can unlock when you combine it with the stone from Fezbin. Return to me later if you wish to investigate Yxtta.'

Flag: You were successful in helping L`diava complete her report of Kod'Taz. Fezbin will be pleased, but there are others who need your help.

You have succeeded in retrieving all the information the Wayfarers Brotherhood was seeking. Return to Fezbin and tell him you have completed your task so that he can give you your final reward.

You receive A Smoky Gem Shard, which may be combined with A Translucent Green Gemstone and Vaifan's Clockwork Gemcutter Tools in Vaifan's Experimental Sealer to craft one of four versions of a Smokey Green Gemstone (melee, hybrid, caster, priest).

this post has some good details -> http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/quest.html?quest=2876;page=1;howmany=50#11268905837434
or check out the opening ikk raid #4 thread, as it has info on these steps.

Just for clarification on the steps:

* You've recovered important glyphs from the Temple of the Damned!
(accomplished via handing in the 4 glpyhs from the triggered mobs in KT to kevren)
(at this point kevren tells you to see tublik in order to translate them)

* You've successfully translated the glyphs you found in the Temple of the Damned!
(accomplished via combining the 4 glyphys + 4 dust in the stone tablet which tublik gives you)

* You were able to recover a rare artifact from the Grand Summoner's goons in the Summoning Circle!
(accomplished via handing in the Grand Summoner’s Glyph to kevren)

* You've returned four relics from the Martyrs Passage!
(accomplished via handing in the 4 relics from martyr's passage mobs to kevren)

* You've returned valuable information as to why the Muramites are in the Martyrs Passage!
(accomplished via handing in the Parchment of Flesh from martyr's passage mobs to kevren)

You don't get the bag from Kevren.

You go to Tubik and say:
Kevren sent me
and then
Stone Tablet

You receive the bag then and can put the pile dust and the glyphs of the damned into it. Then hand the Translated Glyph back to Kevren.

We beat the Summoners ring event in december 2005. after killin the grand summoner a named Ra Tuk spawned, killed him and several (6 or 8 i think) golems spawned with fairly low HPs killed all those they each dropped 6 glyphs 30 min corpses.

made this raid by inviting people from several tacvi + guilds ( people who have the time and gear to do BiC easily). had 30-35 there tops.

good luck

explicit walkthrough
# Sep 16 2005 at 12:04 PM Rating: Excellent
2 posts
I've cobbled together this explicit walkthrough from many sources and my own personal experience.

1. Win the Ikkinz group trials 1, 2, and 3 and turn in the final items to the expedition givers: give Ruined Pendant of Might to Gazak Kleikek, the Stained Stone Chalice to Maroley Nazuey, and the Thrice-Notched Arrow Remains to Kenra Kalekkio. You should now show ‘You have completed the trial at the Temple of Singular Might!’, ‘You have completed the trial at the Temple of Twin Struggles!’ and ‘You have completed the trial at the Temple of the Tri-Fates!’ when you say ‘progress update’ to Kevren Nalavat, who is in Kod’Taz, down the hill from the Natimbi zonein.
2. Loot Kitren's Tattered Cloak from pile of bones in trial 3. The cloak doesn’t drop every time, so you may need to do trial 3 several times. Turn it in to L’diava Rexxen in Abysmal Sea. This must be done after turning in all three of the group trial trophies as explained above or you will be bugged. She will give you a Sealed Note. Return to Kevren, and give him the Sealed Note.
3. Speak again to Kevren, saying ‘other tasks’, ‘martyrs passage’, ‘ancient relics’, ‘investigate’, and ‘understand’. You should now show ‘You’ve been commissioned to investigate the Martyrs Passage!’ in the progress update.
4. Get four Relic of the Martyr (drops from the ghosts in the houses in Martyrs Passage, and also spawns as bags on the ground around the houses) and turn them in to Kevren. You should now see ‘You’ve returned four relics from the Martyrs Passage!’ in the progress update. They are LORE items, all with the same name, so collect all four before turning them in to ensure you have the right ones.
5. Get the Inscribed Flesh Dispatch, a random drop from muramites in Martyrs Passage and turn it in to Kevren. You should now see ‘You’ve recovered valuable information as to why the Muramites are in the Martyrs Passage!’
6. Hail Kevren again, he should say something about how he has studied the info. Say to him ‘problem’, ‘discover their plans’, and he will tell you to do the Temple of the Damned event. You should have ‘You’ve been commissioned to investigate the Temple of the Damned!’ in your progress update, and ‘Pending - You haven’t yet recovered any glyphs from the Temple of the Damned.’
7. Do the Temple of the Damned event in Kod'taz at the temple nearest to the Natimbi zone in, and loot four Glyph of the Damned. They are LORE and all have the same name.
8. Now go back to Kevren and give him all four of the Glyph of the Damned. (If you give him only one, he will keep it and not say anything, but don’t be scared; just give him the rest of the glyphs.) He will tell you they need to be cleaned and will give all four of them back to you and tell you to go to Tublik. You should now have ‘You’ve recovered important glyphs from the Temple of the Damned’ and ‘Pending - You haven’t translated the glyphs gathered from the Temple of the Damned’ in your progress update.
9. Get four Pile of Dust. They are ground spawns in Martyrs Passage, non-lore, tradeable.
10. Talk to Tublik Narwether, a dwarf standing at the southwestern corner of Martyrs Passage. Ignore his talk about the Pit of the Lost (you don’t need to do that) and say to him ‘important glyphs’. Give him one Glyph of the Damned. He will give you back the glyph as well as a Stone Tablet which is an 8 slot container.
11. Put the four Glyph of the Damned and the four Pile of Dust all together, unstacked, in the Stone Tablet. Hit the combine button and you will get one Translated Glyph of the Damned. Give Kevren the Translated Glyph of the Damned, and he will give it back to you to keep (has a single charge gate clicky). You should now have ‘You’ve successfully translated the glyphs you found in the Temple of the Damned!’ in your progress update.
12. Hail Kevren again. He’ll tell you he’s studied the glyph and mention rumors. Say to Kevren ‘rumors’, ‘think you can do’, ‘final warning’. You should now have ‘You’ve been charged with stopping the ceremony at the Summoning Circle!’ and ‘You haven’t recovered any artifacts from the Summoning Circle.’ in your progress update.
13. Do the Summoner Ring event (needs a full size raid) and loot the Grand Summoner’s Glyph. Give the Grand Summoner’s Glyph to Kevren. He will tell you, among other things, ‘I fear I have run out of things for you to do for now’. You can ignore the rest of the tasks. You should now have ‘You were able to recover a rare artifact from the Grand Summoner’s goons in the Summoning Circle!’ in your progress update.
14. Say to Kevren “I have done all you asked”, and he will give you Sealed Confession. Give the Sealed Confession to L’Diava Rexxen in Abysmal Sea, and you will get A Smoky Gem Shard. You have now completed the Kod’Taz portion of BiC.

step 6 clarification - to spawn the 'Temple of the Damned' event go into the furthest east room of the temple mentioned, clear it out, then /open the pile of bones in the NE corner - I'd be well back in the NE corner or you'll get all the mobs at once (which I did - 85 monk with teir2 cleric merc 29k hps, ~4k ac buffed w/ 98% self haste, mostly SoF group gear / SoD weapons), each of the goat mobs drops 6 identical 'Glyph of the Damned', all lore so you'll need 1 glyph from each goat (okay centaur goat for those that are saying "what goats?!"). Room spawned roughly half a dozen mobs.

step 9 dust piles have 2 spawn points: /loc's are -1813 1273 -364 & -1823 1100 -364, they have some time between spawns but I didnt' clock how much

Dust Piles have about a 12-15 minute respawn, definitely faster than the mobs in the Martyr's Passage, so I just looted those while I waited for them to repop to get my last relic.

Can anyone who has done this turn in help me figure out what is off?

I've done all 3 ikk group trials, turned those items into the person (not L'diava) that we got the trial from or whoever it was per the All bic #9 quest information.

I have (on progress update) been given the text that I have finished all 3 trials.

I looted the cloak from Ikk3, hailed L'diava, said "yes", said "frightful temple" then turned in cloak. L'diava tells me - i do not recall asking you for this. Please stop pestering me -0 and she does not give me the letter.

Am I missing something that is not in the two write ups? Did i have to show the ikk1 and ikk2 group pieces to L'diava also? (the chalice, arrow, etc.?)

Do you NEED to complete all 4 raid trials or just the 4th like normal progression? Think it's gonna be a PITA to get people to do the first 3 raid trials just for BiC.

You do NOT need any of the <<raid>> ikkinz trials to finish bic up to this step, you do, however, need all 3 one group ikkinz trials as weel as one drop from ikkinz 3 to finish it up to this part.

To answer my own question
# May 12 2005 at 9:44 AM Rating: Decent

Last night we did Summoner's Ring (pretty trivial by comparison to the last time with all time/tacvi/anguish geared folks).

In order to be on the safe side, I did the text with Kevren before we got to the fight (the text where he commisions you to defeat the Summoner Ring). It does have some dialogue from him about how the Summoners may take a few hours to show up and yada yada.

At any rate, Summoner's Ring is pretty easy now by comparison, much like many of the things that are an expansion or two back. The golems did drop the Grand Summoner's Glyph afterward as well. My advice on this, to be on the safe side, go through the text with Kevren to 'trigger' the event just before you start the ring.
Summoner's Ring
# Apr 28 2005 at 8:51 PM Rating: Decent
33 posts
I have a few questions regarding the Summoner's Ring and how it affects this quest since the patch a good long time back when they removed it as 'required for progression in gates' and left it simply as a ring event.

I'd say about a half a year ago or maybe a bit more, my guild at the time beat the Summoner's Ring, but no Grand Summoner's Glyph dropped at all. I'm not sure if this was a bug, or if they removed the drop altogether when they changed Gates Zone Progression.

Basically, what I am wondering, is has anyone done this portion of the quest since they removed Summoner Ring from the actual zone progression in gates, and not done the turnin from the ring but still been able to continue the quest? I have tried a dozen petitions, attempted to speak with GM's and so forth, but haven't really gotten a satisfactory answer on whether or not this was an in-game bug that caused them not to drop, or if it was entirely removed.

Any info anyone has would be fabulous.

I am not sure what I am missing as I have completed all Ikkinz group trials, and have done the Martyr's Passage stuff as well. Kevren gives me no prompt to "Temple of the Damned" but I do have the pieces from the event. Has anyone else experienced the same thing and did you just turn the stuff in or is there something else that needs done off somewhere else before he will give this quest prompt?

They key word for the Temple of the Damned is [problems]. Each time a step is completed hail Kevren again to reveal the key phrases and words. The text changes as more and more progression portions are finished. Check the progression list often with [progress update]. Once the correct text is given by Kevren asking for the Damned Runes give Kevren the 4 runes. Kevren will return them and reply he can not read them until these runes are cleaned up by Tublik. They key phrase for Tublik is [stone tablet]. Tublik will ask to see 1 of the Damned Runes. Turn in a Damned Rune and Tublik returns the rune with the Stone Tablet. The Stone Tablet is an 8 slot container which will need the 4 Damnd Runes and 4 piles of dust, which are ground spawns in the martyrs passage.

The piles of dust spawn before, in between, and after each little hut that the ghosts are in. Before you go looking for them make sure no named are up because they will agro you if you run past them.
