Slave Trader Bologore is located at -600, -800 in Undershore (not far from the port-in point).

You say, 'Hail, Slave Trader Bologore'

The shiliskin moves his hand, beckoning you to join him, 'Hail to you as well, strange one. Tell me, what brings you to my [caverns]?'

You say, 'Your caverns?'

Slave Trader Bologore says 'Indeed, although this area is patrolled by the Shiliskin Empire, the caverns technically belong to me. My name is Bologore and my operation here is the empire's beating heart. Without me, Malgrinnor's economy and infrastructure would crumble away. While the rest of my race hides inside Malgrinnor's walls, clinging to their xenophobic beliefs, I remain one of the few shiliskin who knows how to get things done. Do we [understand] each other?'

You say, 'We understand each other.'

Slave Trader Bologore says, 'Good, I'm glad. Let's keep our meeting between us then,' the shiliskin smiles as he reaches into a nearby bowl and grabs a fist-sized squirming creature. 'Certain members of Malgrinnor's ruling council would have me arrested if they even knew I was talking to you. Yet here I am, offering you a chance to gather a [group] and work for me. What do think of that, strange one?' Bologore asks as he stuffs the creature into his tentacled mouth and chews loudly.'

You say, 'I have a group.'

Slave Trader Bologore says 'Here are the jobs I need done, preferably as quickly and quietly as possible.'

A task window pops up offering several missions, one of which is "Shiliskin Subterfuge."

Available monsters (drachnids) are warrior, rogue, cleric, enchanter, and wizard. All are 70th level.

'Gather in close,' the shiliskin grins maliciously. 'What I am about to say is for your ears alone.'

'A rival of mine has sponsored an expedition to recover several nargilor statuettes from the ruins of Illsalin. These artifacts have been missing since the city fell to the undead. They will likely fetch a handsome price that will leave me at a distinct bargaining disadvantage. This cannot happen.'

'I need you to slip into Illsalin and stop this expedition by any means necessary. Then acquire the statuettes yourself and bring them to me.'

'Oh yes, and one more thing . . . you'll need to appear as drachnids so that I can claim I was uninvolved in this little heist. I do not want my rivals to have any evidence to use against me, should you leave any of them alive. Here, this spell will shift you into drachnid form as soon as you enter Illsalin. Return with the statuettes and you will be well rewarded.'

Enter the Temple of the Korlach in Illsalin 0/1 (Ruins of Illsalin)

Kill 10 Rival Treasure Hunters 0/10 (Temple of the Korlach)

Recover 6 Shiliskin Relics 0/6 (Temple of the Korlach)

As of today I hear this misson is pretty bad, even with 2 clerics in the group and an enc slowing the mob the tank still has trouble keeping up with the dps the trash does. Wouldn't do this misson unless you really need the items.
Not worth it

I wouldn't do this mission, unless you like the loot. You end up having to go to some zone in the Ruins of Isalin(forget name, it's same as 70.2, the one needing IVU to get to)and then to kill 10 or so shiliskins. However, the rooms are densly packed with lots of zombies and drachnids. Pulls of 2-3 were common. After 3 hours of killing, clearing, and dieing, we finally won, returned to the slave trader guy and got 1aa.
