You say, 'What dervish cutthroats?'

Ortallius says 'The dervish cutthroats are the vile scum who inhabit the desert. They are rogues who assault wayward travelers. Solusek Ro has commanded their extermination!! Do you wish to [join the crusade]?'

You say, 'I wish to join the crusade.'

Ortallius grins enthusiastically. 'The scum rarely wander far from their camps. Hunt them down and I will reward you for every three insignia rings you bring as proof of their deaths.'

Search and destroy: kill dervish cutthroats until you obtain three insignia rings. Hand them to Ortallius.

Ortallius says, 'You will make a fine addition to the crusade. Continue the cleansing of the desert. Let it be known that the Defenders of Ro are here to challenge the evils of the desert. I call upon the righteousness of all paladins to assist me.'

Thought id comment. Did this with my lvl 15 enchanter. I allianced him putting me to amiable. I did the quest twice getting in total 7 silver and around 15 copper. I got a rusty short sword and rusty spear. Not enough exp to move the bar at all.

READ the quest says NOTHING about tongues. He NEVER asks for tongues. He wants RINGS. The Cutthroat rings. VERY simple. Is NOT the Rogue quest NPC. Is English a dead language?[quote][/quote]Tis a good day to die.

Well, I came here to raise my faction for Temple of Solusek, so that I could do the Harvester quest for my necro. I'm KoS at the Temple of Solusek Ro. Lo and behold, I'm KOS to this guy too. Dammit.

For anyone interested, he no longer asks about paladins of ro.

Actual text from mid August 2002:

You say, 'Hail, Ortallius'
Ortallius says 'Welcome to the lands of Ro. Stand and fight with me. We shall fight to reclaim the desert in the name of Solusek Ro. Death to all [dervish cutthroats]!!'

You say, 'what dervish cutthroats?'
Ortallius says 'The dervish cutthroats are the vile scum who inhabit the desert. They are rogues who assault wayward travelers. Solusek Ro has commanded their extermination!! Do you wish to [join the crusade]?'

You say, 'I will join the crusade?'
Ortallius grins enthusiastically. 'The scum rarely wander far from their camps. Hunt them down and I will reward you for every three insignia rings you bring as proof of their deaths.'

give him 3 cutthroat rings

Ortallius says 'You will make a fine addition to the crusade. Continue the cleansing of the desert. Let it be known that the Defenders of Ro are here to challenge the evils of the desert. I call upon the righteousness of all paladins to assist me.'
Your faction standing with Temple Of Sol Ro got better.
Your faction standing with Shadowed Men got worse.
You gain experience!!
You receive 8 copper from Ortallius.
You receive 4 silver from Ortallius.

the people in wc who hunt dervs mostly leave the rings to rot , personally i'd rather get free rings and zone once in a while than spend 3pp a whack
More than meets the eye

Not only is it good for faction but if you turn in a LOT of them (like 40-50) then he gives you blackened iron armor (or something around that sort).

If he does reward you with more useful items it would likely be based on your currect faction during the hand in, not directly how many rings you've already given him. I'd recomend killing a LOT of shadow men if that's an option before wasting money on this quest, they're fast faction especially if you can take out the whole camp consistantly.

Unless you are trying to fix your faction with the Temple of Solesk Ro, don't bother. The exp. you get from Ortellius is next to nothing (even when I was at a lower level, like around 10-11) and the items he gives you are junk - not even good for selling.

Do not give this man the tongue from BB they are for the Rogue quest (for a pick) in Kaladim. Give him 3 rings to build up faction at Ro temple in Lavastorm (for good quests later on) The xp is decent for low levels (got one blue at lvl 7) but NOTHING at lvl 16. (well faction and a crappy item)

enjoy

I tried this quest by giving 8 bandit tongues from bb zone and didn't receive anything. Haven't tried rings though.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 22 2001 at 8:32 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) For the people that say this is awesome exp don't post about quests anymore please. The only reason they think this is awesome exp is cuz they are 1 stupid or 2 never done df belts quest. DF belts are great for exp until lvl 20. Even me being a troll i got unkos with freeport and i got some good exp. For you that would disagree then i would like to see what you do for exp then cuz 1 bub of exp with no threats of death is great to me.
Any Clue

I tried this quest and indeed it did not work. I used all four tongues (Qued, Gundl, Glynn, and Glynda).
I have however validated that you can turn in the 3 or the 4 dervish rings (both will work).

The tongues may be related to a Kelethin quest but I have not found it yet. I will follow up on this if I do.

The bandit tounges found in Butcherblock are for a quest in Kaladim. For the rouge guild there. You also need a tougne from crushbone off the named dwarf, forgot his name.

exp... what's that?
# May 24 2001 at 11:31 AM Rating: Decent
I am a 10th lvl necro (my first one) and grouped with two other 10th lvl necros. I was hoping to cash in the rings for the extra exp. because my two friends have no life (grin) and always get more EQ time than I do, so a little extra exp. could help me keep up.

Anyway, perhaps I should have read these posts before we spent all day fighting Cutthroats. We were 9th lvl when we started, to which the ALL on red. As we made 10th, some of them started to con yellow.

Now, I'll not fault the exp. we received from actually killing them. Obviously, Reds and Yellows are great exp., when you can survive the encounter. The grips I have is when you turn in the rings them selves. I had little more than 4 backpacks full, turned them in properly, got the faction, exp., and average of 2 silver messages, but I'll be damned if I even moved my exp bar. Not one bit.

What gives?

At lower levels, I was turnign firs beetle eyes to the Bad Side Of Town people over in Freeport for great exp. Granted I took faction hits with some of the nicer town folk. But those were blue to me at the time.

These boys are Red and just now some Yellow. I would think to receive some good exp. The money is insignificant (you can sell each ring for more silver than that), and while all good faction hits are good, what is the point of telling me "You receive expereince points", three times a turn in, and then not give me any real points?

If you have to be a lower lvl to get the exp. point benefit, you'd get WALKED over by the Cutthroats.

My advise.. don't do this turn in if you are looking for anything but faction. Even still, isn't there a better way to receive these faction hits? There must be some critters you Paladins can swat away that would provide the same faction a whole lot quicker.
What?!?!

So if this is were i turn in the dirv rings to the Ro person were to i put the toungs?
8 dwarf Tungues
# Apr 27 2001 at 10:14 AM Rating: Default
There are 8 Tungues you get off of the bandits in BB but one is in Crushbone. The 4 Dunfire are for the roge quest. The other 4 + the wooden leg and Gnoll paw (all no drop lore)have not been id. for a quest yet. Give the the Rings for this quest.
Good for faction only
# Apr 16 2001 at 12:27 PM Rating: Default
This is really only useful to fix faction for the armour quests in Solsek temple. I have a 45 pally and have yet to get anything out of him other than the faction need with thet temple to do the Ro armour quest.

IMHO, this quest shouldn't be used so much for items, xp or cash as it should be used to build up faction with the Temple of Solesk Ro which is HUGE in terms of making Quest armor for Paladins and Rangers...probably more classes as well as there are MANY npc's in the Temple that you need faction with in order to even get the quest at all.

Use this quest for faction....dump the junk given back to you cuz that's just what it is...junk.
Better quest for a little cash.

Go to the Erudite behind him and hand over 3pp (or 30gp. he says it has to be gold, but he's lieing). He gives you a random spell scroll, and faction with the temple of Sol Ro!
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 15 2001 at 1:15 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I made this quest and got angry because he gave me a rusty axe 2 sil 1 cop and no exp the faction witch i did't care for I was veryb disappointed:(
Ring's not Tongue's
# Oct 08 2000 at 10:04 PM Rating: Default
You don't give him bandit tongue's, you give him 4 Cut Throat Rings for some nice EXP and it raises your fation in Temple of Sol in RM.
RE: Ring's not Tongue's
# Nov 10 2000 at 7:27 PM Rating: Default
There are 3 bandit tongues, Glynda's, Glynn's & Gundl's (quest items,lore,nd) which are found at the dunfire bandit camp in Butcherblock and are not used for any other quests as far as i know (not the ones requested for the kaladim's rogue quest)
except maybe this one. Haven't try it yet. If anyone got a better idea...
RE: Ring's not Tongue's
# Feb 28 2001 at 2:54 AM Rating: Default
I got Keldon's (sp?) also from around the same area where Qued spawns.
RE: Ring's not Tongue's
# Nov 26 2000 at 9:37 PM Rating: Default
I also got Qued's tongue from a bandit named Qued in Butcher Block. No drop.
RE: Ring's not Tongue's
# Nov 19 2000 at 5:27 PM Rating: Default
Those are actually connected to a Paladin quest out of Kelethin.
