Faction with Norrath's Keepers

Tier 1: Gift of the Keepers

Upon reaching indifferent faction (and if Level 65+), you can begin progression by speaking with Chieftain Relae Aderi:

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi nods his head in acknowledgement and smiles. 'Welcome to the Norrath's Keepers' enclave. We are busy protecting the way of the right and honorable now. Our world is at a crossroads and we must endeavor to ensure we maintain order as much as we can. Should you wish to [help] us, do say so.'

You say, 'I wish to help you'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Those are encouraging words and we will gladly take your offer. Please see Nylaen Kel`Ther, my trusted friend. While his tasks may not seem glorious, they are necessary for us to gain a foothold against the Dark Reign, the followers of Lanys T`Vyl, the Child of Hate. They have their grim eyes set on seeing the end of us all. To begin, from the volcano, we need ingredients to create an antidote, help collecting Delvian teeth for our arrowheads, and handling goblin greed in the Stillmoon Temple. When you satisfy these needs, then we shall speak again.'

You have received a character flag!

Now talk with Private Nylaen Kel`Ther, next to Chieftain Relae Aderi to receive three different solo tasks:

Creating an Antidote
Burning Arrows
Greed of the Goblins

After completing these tasks, speak with Chieftain Relae Aderi again:

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Welcome back, _____. News of your good deeds is passing quickly through our ranks. I wish we could say your work is done here, but it is not. The goblins of Tirranun's Delve heard of your efforts against their kin in the Stillmoon Temple and they have vowed revenge. One in particular, Gimblax, plans to hunt you down. We know where he is now and if you move quickly, perhaps you can reach him first. Speak to Dilar Nelune and he will give you further guidance.'

You have received a character flag!

Next, speak with Keeper Dilar Nelune to receive a single-group task:

Children of Gimblax

After completing this task, speak with Chieftain Relae Aderi again:

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'It is time to repay you for all you have done. Firiona Vie has chosen to share a divine gift with you that will only grow stronger if you continue to help us. This magic to be instilled with you is a fitting reward, but you will fast lose it should you ever aid the Dark Reign -- in fact, it will disappear instantly!'

You have received a character flag!
You have gained the ability "Gift of the Keepers" at a cost of 0 ability points.

The new ability "Gift of the Keepers" gives a maximum stats increase of 10 per stat.

Tier 2: Valor of the Keepers

You must have amiable faction standing or better to request Tier 2 tasks. You can raise faction by doing the miscellaneous missions offered by the NPCs in the camp (each mission results in a Token which can be turned in for +20 faction). First speak with Chieftain Relae Aderi again:

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

If below amiable, you see:

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Your contributions certainly do shine, _____, but to further help us is a matter of trust. You must prove that you are ready for the higher levels of confidentiality by aiding us with more work.'

If amiable or higher, you see:

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'I am delighted to see that you got to Gimblax before he was able to get to you. It would be a great loss to us if he were to find you and carry out his plans! You have done so well for us that we have much more for you to do if you are still willing. If you wish to help us turn the sand goblins' anger, recover the lost map, and protect our kirin contact, please speak to Nylaen Kel`Ther and he will give you more [work]. May the light of the world shine upon you, _____!'

You say, 'What work?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'This may be presumptuous and I'm not certain the kind of company you keep, but should you find the will and way, there are stories of a dragon of lava that goes by the very name of that volcano, Tirranun. We have found an entrance that would seem to lead to its lair, but none of us have found the numbers or bravery to attempt to find it. With your associations, perhaps you would have better luck, at your leisure of course. We must learn all we can about the dragons for we fear that the Dark Reign wish to gain control over them to use against us. In the meantime, we have bestowed upon you a reward for your assistance. Safe travels, _____.'

You have received a character flag!

(This flag grants you access to the non-progression raid "Fanning the Flames".)

Now, speak with Private Nylaen Kel`Ther (need to be Level 67+) to receive three solo tasks:

Turn the Tides of the Sand
Recover the Lost Map
Defend the Kirin Contact

After completing these three tasks, speak with Chieftain Relae Aderi again:

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Your advancement and accomplishments are many and you have our gratitude, but I must implore you to continue to help us. There are few as capable as you to accept the challenges that lie ahead. Dilar Nelune has been charged with giving you the information needed to making an offering of peace and reassurance to our kirin contact. Also, I have permitted Ekiltu Verlor to give you access to all the information you would need to bring an end to the terrible dervish, Emoush. Bring me evidence you have overcome this challenge.'

You have received a character flag!

Next, hail Keeper Dilar Nelune to receive a group mission:

Sickness of the Spirit

After that, speak with Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor for your first raid event:

Calling Emoush (6-24 players)

Loot the "Glowing Stone Fragment" from Emoush the Destroyer, and bring it to the Chieftain to complete Tier 2 progression:

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Norrath's Keepers acknowledges your steadfastness and resolve in our name and Firiona herself wishes to strengthen the gift she has bestowed upon you so you may serve us with greater power.'

You have received a character flag!

You get 1-2 AAs and the Special AA "Valor of the Keepers" which adds 250 hp/mana/end to your base stats. You also receive your 69th level spell/tome:

Bard - Spell: Storm Blade
Beastlord - Spell: Growl of the Panther
Berserker - Tome of Destroyer's Volley
Cleric - Spell: Blessed Touch (scribes as "Ward of Retribution")
Druid - Spell: Serpent Vines
Enchanter - Spell: Rune of Rikkukin
Magician - Spell: Summon: Molten Orb
Monk - Tome of Dragon Fang
Necromancer - Spell: Shadow Orb
Paladin - Tome of Guard of Righteousness
Ranger - Spell: Earthen Shackles
Rogue - Tome of Assassin's Feint
Shadowknight - Tome of Soul Shield
Shaman - Spell: Spirit of the Panther
Warrior - Tome of Cyclone Attack
Wizard - Spell: Claw of Vox

Tier 3: Embrace of the Keepers

To request Tier 3 content, you must be at least mid amiable with Norrath's Keepers and be at least Level 68.

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi bows as he recognizes you. 'Your good deeds in the name of the Keepers is gaining you a great reputation and the requests for your assistance come from more and more places. I would ask you to continue with your good work and we still have several tasks you may be interested in. Your skill and prowess have earned you entrance into the more [lauded] circles of our ranks, so what we ask now is of greater importance.'

You have received a character flag!

(This flag grants you access to the non-progression raids "Reflections of Silver" & "Kessdona's Perch".)

You say, 'Lauded?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Indeed. The people who now know and respect you are some of the closest to Firiona Vie, the Chosen of Tunare, and the leader of Norrath's Keepers. If you wish to stand alongside those who support and serve the Chosen, then you must continue to prove your worth as they all did. There are many [quests] that must be undertaken. You must speak to Nylaen Kel`Ther for those. And you must meet Areha Burina. She has uncovered a path to the [wyrms] of Stillmoon Temple, though our interest in them right now isn't immediate or required.'

You say, 'What quests?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'You must protect the purity of the waters of Stillmoon Temple, secure the knowledge of the scrolls of the temple, and thwart the attack of the Snowfoot goblins. Speak to Nylaen again and he will give you more information. When you are successful, return to me and I will direct you to my officers for more challenging work.'

You say, 'What wyrms?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'There are two dragons that protect and serve in the Stillmoon Temple and Ascent -- Rikkukin and Kessdona. They are mates of a breed of dragon made of precious metals. They are believed to be the first children of Veeshan on Norrath. They are dragons of great wisdom and knowledge, but don't be fooled by their sleek beauty. Once in the past, I believe dragons of their kind had betrayed our own Firiona. We fear they intend to betray the good of Norrath too if we lend our minds and hearts to them. You will nearly need an army of your own to overcome these dragons and we have no requirement of you to that end, but they are yours to discover.'

Speak with Private Nylaen Kel`Ther to receive three solo tasks:

Protect the Waters
The Sacred Scrolls
Snowfoot Revenge

Once done those tasks, speak with the Chieftain again for a flag:

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi nods. 'We are always on the defensive and must continue to keep our minds and spirits up and charging ahead. The tasks we present to you now are more daunting. Having proven yourself and gained our trust brings greater challenges to you. We ask you to learn the history of Thundercrest Isle, endure a Trial of Perseverance issued by the goblins in the Stillmoon Temple, and take on the great spider queen, Volkara. You'll need to speak to Ekiltu Verlor for particulars and then you must return to me and give me proof you have overcome these tasks. And do introduce yourself to Areha Burina.'

You have received a character flag!

Next, speak with Keeper Dilar Nelune for a group mission:

History of the Isle

You'll also need to complete two progression raids from Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor:

Trial of Perseverance (6-24 players)
Volkara's Bite (6-42 players)

Loot "Goblin Warlord's Beads" from the warlord in the "Trial of Perseverance", and loot "Lava Spider Spinners" from Volkara in "Volkara's Bite". Hand in these two items to Chieftain Relae Aderi:

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'You've become a great contributor to our cause, _____. There will be gifts bestowed upon you for this!'

You have received a character flag!

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Your deeds continue to astound and impress us, even Firiona Vie has taken notice of you as we carry on about your good work. She has decided to grant you greater power once again.'

You have received a character flag!

You get 1-2 AAs and the Special AA "Embrace of the Keepers" which increases your buff slot limit.

Tier 4: Power of the Keepers

In order to continue on in Tier 4, you must, again, have kindly faction. Hail Commander Zaerr Ty`Dar for another flag:

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Every day we learn more about the Nest and, sadly, the intentions of the Dark Reign toward the good folk of Norrath. These are indeed troubling times, but I have no doubt that we will prevail with Firiona at our side. Go speak to Ekiltu Verlor. With your skills and talents, we believe you may have a good chance to overcome Shogurei, the Guardian of the Sands. With a smaller force, you may be able to accept the challenge issued by the goblins of Thundercrest Isles. We must attempt to beat this trial ahead of the Dark Reign so that perhaps the goblins may favour us and ease their anger towards us. You must bring proof you have conquered both of these tasks.'

You have received a character flag!

Now, you need to complete two progression raids from Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor:

Guardian of the Sands (6-42 players)
Goblin Dojo (6-24 players)

Loot "Quintessence of Sand" and "Meditation Stone" from those two raids (respectively), and give them to Chieftain Relae Aderi:

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'You are indeed rising in everyone's estimation as you continue to overcome great odds Your efforts will not go unnoticed.'

You have received a character flag!

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'You have done a great service to Norrath's Keepers. What you have learned may have given us the edge we need over the Dark Reign. They are forever sending spies and doing all they can to undermine our efforts to bring peace and harmony in Norrath. While you have risen in our estimation since we first set eyes upon you, you would like to put your [dedication] to the test before we admit you as a Keeper.'

You say, 'My dedication?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Lanys T`Vyl and her Dark Reign lackeys grow stronger each day and there is little time to waste. Areha Burina has some extremely challenging work for you, particularly a meeting with the dragon of [storms].'

You say, 'What dragon of storms?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'We expect that Yar`Lir, the storm dragon, is exceedingly powerful and unique. We have learned from you and the scrolls obtained from the temple, that Yar`Lir is the dragon responsible for casting a veil of magic and storms over the Nest to protect it from view and keep it hospitable for the wyrms. You must go to see her, but I would expect her to be none-to-pleased to see you there and you will likely need to [defend] yourself. However, we would not be the keepers of these lands if we did not at least attempt to approach her civilly.'

You say, 'Defend myself?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Should she attack you and you are forced to draw your weapons, know this -- killing her will disrupt the veil she casts here. This might be the opportunity that the Dark Reign looks for, but we will contend with that from here. There is more, we believe, as we haven't found where most of the dragons eggs are kept in the Nest. This is why we are sending you -- to learn what you can. Also, if you can, retrieve one of Yar`Lir's fangs. Areha Burina will lead you to her.'

You have received a character flag!

Now, speak with Captain Areha Burina to request another progression raid:

An End to the Storms (6-54 players)

Loot "Yar'lir's Fang" from this raid, and hand it to Chieftain Relae Aderi:

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Our efforts to keep the Dark Reign at bay have been furthered by your honor and prowess, _____. And once more Firiona wishes to grant you even greater magic and strength to carry you forward.'

You get 1-2 AAs + the Special AA "Power of the Keepers" (increases chance of critical hits/spells, heals, and DoTs)

Tier 5: Sanctity of the Keepers

In order to continue on in Tier 5, you must have at least warmly faction. Speak with Chieftain Relae Aderi:

You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says, 'As we feared, Yar'lir was not kind to us, but it is to be expected. This fang will be treasured and protected while our researcher study it. It is not time to dawdle though. I'm sure you're already aware that the death of Yar'Lir caused a great disturbance in the Nest. Each time the storm dragon's magic is interrupted, the Nest and resting place of the eggs of the Nest's dragons become darker and we're not sure why. In order to learn more, please talk to Dilar Nelune and Ekiltu Verlor. They have new work for you -- to investigate a curse in the Nest and to learn about a dark drake by the name of Ju'rek. You will need to bring me proof of your success.'

Next, speak with Keeper Dilar Nelune for a group mission:

Origins of the Curse

You'll also need to complete another progression raid from Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor:

The Curse of Ju'rek (6-24 players)

Loot "Diseased Wing Fragment" from this raid, and hand it to Chieftain Relae Aderi:

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Gracious, that curse certainly seems to run deep. You have accomplished what very few have been able to and we'd like to reward you. As you may have already ascertained, there is a [dragon] in the Nest that we have yet to confront. That falls to you now.'

You have received a character flag!

You say, 'What dragon?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'We hear that the dragon in the Nest was Yar'Lir's mate, also a dragon of storms. But as you confronted Yar'Lir and disrupted her magic, the twisting caverns of the Nest were fully bared and a sickly darkness washed over them. It seems the curse you investigated was somehow unleashed at that moment and the dragon of the Nest was touched and darkened by it, but we don't know more than that. He is angry, though, without question. Speak to Areha Burina.'

You have received a character flag!

Now, speak with Captain Areha Burina to request a final progression raid:

In the Shadows (6-54 players)

Loot "Shadowscale of Vishimtar" from this raid, and hand it in to Chieftain Relae Aderi to finish off your progression:

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Your wondrous deeds will become woven into bards' songs, _____! You are a soldier of balance and good and for that Firiona is granting the greatest divine gift that any more can bear. Use it well and continue your service of keeping evil at bay, _____.'

You get 1-2 AAs and the Special AA "Sanctity of the Keepers" (increases spell resist caps).


You say, 'Hail, Chieftain Relae Aderi'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'Well the pieces have begun to fall into place. With all that you accomplished in bringing us artifacts and information, and the death of Yar`Lir, we have learned something disturbing. The curse that was laid in the Nest was designed to come alive when the magic of the Nest was weakened. It would seem someone knew that, one way or another, Norrathians would kill Yar`Lir and [break] the veil that protected the Nest underneath her.'

You have received a character flag!

You say, 'What about the break?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'As you know, Yar`Lir was Vishimtar's mate, another dragon of storms. It was not just Yar`Lir who held the veil of magic and storms over the Nest -- Vishimtar worked with her. When Yar`Lir was killed and the magic veil interrupted, that's when it happened. The [dormant curse] in the Nest was brought to life and it crept through the caverns, destroying eggs and creatures in its path, including Vishimtar. While he was not killed, his body and magic became corrupted and he was made more powerful.'

You say, 'What about the dormant curse?'

Chieftain Relae Aderi says 'What plagues us now is the origin of the curse. We are not sure who is responsible, but we are devoted to finding out. You can help us no further now, but I would say you'd done enough, wouldn't you? You have certainly proved yourself and can now consider yourself one of Norrath's Keepers.'

Actually, they can drop from any of the sentinel models. Can think of mud sentinel off the top of my head too. Never saw a double drop, but have seen both a scroll of wisdom & a scroll of knowledge on the same mob.

After completing the 3 solo tasks, you talk to the Chieftian then and you can get both the group mission from Keeper Dilar Nelune and the raid mission from Lieutenant Ekiltu Verlor. So you can get the raid yourself and hand in the piece before getting the group mission and completing it.
Secret of Yar'Lir

I finished Tier 3 tasks and did the History of the Isle group mission. I looted all the pieces and combined to make the Secret of Yar'Lir. Based on what I've read here, the drops from the 2 subsequent raids are what you turn in to complete Tier 3, but what is the Secret of Yar'Lir for; is there someone I'm supposed to turn it in to? I can find nothing about it.

at amiable faction for good side i got all three solo tasks, finished them and am being offered the last 3 mission (group and raid x2). havent tried starting raid missions or group one yet for tier 3 but i think amiable faction is good at least to get you to tier 4

Need some details on the process...
I've done all solo tasks, but i've finished the last one 2 hours after doing History of the Isle with guild mates.
Then, I've done trial of perseverance and looted the Goblin Warlord's Beads at the end.
During HoI i did not loot anything...is the guy that looted 3 parts the only flagged or the whole group and especially me (considering infos above) is flagged ?
It's a bit messy in my head now eh eh...

I am reasonably sure you have to do all the tasks PRIOR to getting credit for the group mission. As far as Volk and the Trial are concerned, you can loot the items ahead of time and turn in after you have your other flags in order.

My experience is that it does not matter when you do the group mission, as long as you have done it and all the solo tasks before you try to turn in the drops from the raid missions. I am still working on faction for Tier 3, but on both Tier 1 and Tier 2, I did the group missions before I even had the faction to get the solo tasks and did not redo the group mission after completing the solo tasks.

I received the character flag and rewards for Tier 1 by simply hailing the Chief (might have needed to hail twice) after completing the solo tasks. For Tier 2, the Chief would not accept the Glowing Stone Fragment until I had completed the solo tasks, but did accept it and give me the reward once those were done and without making me redo to the group mission.

I helped a friend do the Tier 3 group mission while I was still on tier 2. I just finished the tier 3 tasks and hailed the chiftan and it skipped to the part about the two raids so I guess you can do them whenever and still get credit.

The odd # of HP's come from the fact it is not a fixed number. You do get 200 mana & 200 endurance. The HP boost is 3%

Kindly would be you answer. I believe each tier require 1 level higher than the last. Only at tier 3 myself, but from myself and friends that rule has held true:

1st tier--Indifferent
2nd tier--Amiable
3rd tier--Kindly
4th tier--Warmly?
5th tier--Ally?

I couldn't find a walk through for Gimblax, so here is a quick one.

Okay our group make up was Paladin, Beast, Shaman, Druid, Cleric, Necro. Levels 68-70.

We nailed this first time through with only 2 deaths and well.. those were just goof-ups.

The mobs that see invis here are Evokers, Shaman, and Cleric Goblins.

We as a group had 10 minute druid invis, we stayed close and took all right hand sides of the corridors from zone in heading straight south to Gimblax. If you have a map Gimblax is located at the Southern most Lavaspinners entrance.

We had no problem using the beastlord to pet pull out the single mobs. We would always stop outside each corridor, use pet pull, beat the crap out of the one see invis. Reinvis ourselves and move on.

The only hard part was the last corridor, instead of having a roamer the See invis evoker stood at the far end. It was a tricky pull but we got him single and invised past to Gimblax.

Once in the same chamber as Gimblax we set up camp on the right side of his chamber. We single pulled all the drakes. We killed Gimblax who just really wasn't hard enough to mention. He has about 150k HP but hits like a girl. Normal mobs in MPG are harder. In and out in about 25-30 minutes.
Get off the game and get a life.

Regarding Faction and Level. Person getting the mission must be indifferent. Average group level is 68 (67 RNG, 67 PAL, 68 WAR, 68 ENC, 68 CLR, and 70 BST) did this tonight. All were indifferent to start, BST was Amiable after Token turn-in following fight.
Also, though the text you recieve says "you have recieved an Ability Point" you actually recieve two for completion of this (assuming the three tasks were complete prior to this mission.)

Is it possible to switch factions mid stream? Or are you locked into a faction once you get to the point of doing either progression?

easy way to get faction is too kill the opposite guards of the faction ur trying to get. they move ur faction up pretty fast, granted theres only 4 of them.

I started out evil, got up to the first 24 player raid (emush?). Then when we merged with SolRo Server everyone was only doing good missions! So i've been switching back and after a few dozen missions I'm still not good enough faction with the good camp to turn the crystals into the merchent, i'm still running to the indiff camp to do it.

Forgive me if someone else pointed this out and I missed it, but for tasks which only involve killing a certain number of MOBs, not only do you get credit for any MOBs your group kills, but you get credit for raid MOBs as well. SOE usually make us compete against each other for drops etc, so I'd like to suggest cooperating to the maximum extent possible on this.

You also get kill task credit for kills in a raid; confirmed that yesterday.

After you turn in the quintessence of sand and meditation stone, run through the dialogue and when the Chieftan says something about "dedication" /say defend
after that flag go to captain areha burina (raids npc) and you should now have Yar`Lir. If the Chieftan doesn't accept the fang from YL, try turning it into the captain. hope this helps.

I had no problem with this part of the flagging. You have completed your tier 3 flags, AND have already turned in the quintessence of sand, and the meditation stone, receiving the character flag?

Also, kind of a silly thought, but make sure you have the chieftan targetted, and are not invis.

tier 2 tasks are really easy.. killing chump mobs in Stilmoon and Ascent...

there is then a grp mission, which is also pretty easy as long as you have a balanced grp

the Emoush raid isnt that bad either.. really a straightforward encounter.. pull 3 gobbies guarding him, kill them simultaneously (if you kill 1 then move to the next they will respawn fast, best to try to get them to drop within a few seconds of each other, even if you have to stop attacking one to let people catch up with others). Once 3 gobbie guards are down... Emoush the Destroyer becomes targetable.. just burn him down from there

Afriend of mine is having troubles with the DON progression. We have been closely doing the quests together, and have done all of the tier one quests, got Gimblax and the aa for doing it, did the three collection quests, did emoush, and both handed in the drop. we both got the AA, but she is not able to do the tasks to continue, and i got them and completed them. what might be the problem?

indeed.. most likely a faction issue.. your beginning faction with the DoN camps is based on your race / class / diety.

she very likely started out with a lower faction than you.. and just needs to do a little catch-up work

Do I have to save the looted items or can they safely be destroyed once the task is complete? I'm short on bank space.

For the single person tasks (collect 7 blood, collect 9 map pieces, etc.) you can safely destroy the no-drop items you collect after you loot them.

For the progression raid drops (the items you get at the end of the raid events), you have to hand in the drops to the Chieftain to get your reward, so obviously you want to save those.

I finished all of "Turning the Tides of the Sand" and "Recovering the Lost Map" and was done with 7 out of 9 Kirins, when the task "Defending the Kirin Contact" vanished from my task window. I went and killed 2 more Kirins because I figured there was a bug that was stopping it from showing. Turns out there is a bug that I can't explain, but I had to start the task from scratch (starting with talking with Chieftain Relae Aderi and Private Nylaen Kel`Ther). My only guess is that I had too many tasks going at one point and it removed this one from my list. I sent a petition and they (surprise) said they couldn't do anything. I have sent a bug report, but don't know if it will be looked into. Just thought you all might want to know. Hope this helps someone.

well i did make this mistake i removed the task with out knowing it trying to leave a don and couldnt figure out why i wansnt getting booted from it untill i looked and noticed the task i was working on was gone and the don i was in was still their as i was almost finished with the task (120 kills and colect 80 ) i was pretty upset i did something so stupid but oh well i started it over again and am now almosst done with iot again and i make sure i am removing the proper task b4 i click remove now lesson learned
buff slot question

ok, through completion of DON progression you get buff slots.....there are also AA's for xtra buff slots............how many total buff slots can you have and would i get my AA's back that i spent on the buff slots once i do the DON progression?

thanks for any feedback on this.

You can only obtain one extra buff slot in DoN progression and that is for finishing the 3rd stage.

You can also obtain 5 more buff slots with OoW AA's.

This equals a grand total of 6 extra buff slots.

Also to answer your question, you don't receive any AA points back if you get the extra slot from DoN progression.

Hope this helps.

Obtaining the Added Buff Slot

I turned in the Goblin Warlord's Beads and the Spider Spinner prior to becoming Kindly. When I did the turn in I got a message about a gift, but didn't recieve an additional "Buff Slot" nor the AAs.

Since doing the turn-ins discussed above I have reached Kindly, but have not been able to obtain the buff slot by hailing the Chieftian nor have I recieved any additional lauguage which mentions a "Gift".

Anyone know what I need to do to obtain the "Gift", or Do I have to repeat the raids which drop the "Beads & and the Spinner"?

No. They added in space for 5 more buff slots on the UI, but it's never been more than one additional buff slot awarded. They planned ahead so that next time they want to allow an additional buff slot, they don't have to modify the UI. That's all. Wasn't 5 nerfed to 1.. was always only 1 awarded. They just left themselves some room to grow.

Currently there is no known way in-game to get more than 21 buff slots, however the user interface will allow for up to 25 buff slots at some point in the future. Perhaps an undiscovered quest? Perhaps the next expansion? Who knows, wait and see.

With my 65th ranger, raid buffed with epics 1.0 and alt high dps weapons, I'm getting my behind served up to me by the time I meet the 2nd mob. Guess solo melee means higher level or top end gear rather than ornate.

Think the "solo" mission part is somewhat of a misnomer

well it is and it isnt a misnomer....

the term *solo task* doesnt mean anyone in the game can solo it.. it just means that by you accepting the mission, it isnt given to your entire group (for obvious reasons).. and you dont need to be IN a group to get them, like you do to even get the grp missions.

its not technically incorrect, just a different interpretation of what *solo task* means
