This flags you to start the quest for the epic 1.5 if you do not have Ragebringer (rogue epic 1.0).

Find "a shady Highpass citizen" at -95, +425 in Highpass Hold. You need to talk to him; say "one," "two," or "three" to him; and purchase the Gold-Leafed Urn he has for sale for approximately 2099 pp.


One

This task has you gamble away the urn in Highpass Keep at the tables. Go to Dealer Maeline near the guards/nobles (/loc?) and give him the urn. Say "deal me a hand" until you get 2000 coins, at which point Guard Kovan turns his attention and emotes about nobles. Cash out.

You have unloaded the stolen urn, completing the first task for the Smuggler's Camp.

(Need all dialogues and emotes.).

Two

This task has you search for Nichols. Go to the prison area near the warrior guild in Shar Vahl, location 100, -545, -236. Talk to "a prisoner" in the cells there.

You say, 'Hail, a prisoner'

a prisoner leans forward and whispers. Psst, you'll never get the guards here to budge, they dont make deals, don't take bribes and they are much to careful to catch by suprise. If you promise to help me, I will tell you [where to find the keys].'

You say, 'Where do I find the keys?'

A prisoner nods and continues to whisper, 'Before we were brought to these cells, we were held in Katta briefly. I bet you'd find a keys to these blasted cages and another key to our shackles there, and the best part is the guards are much more careless. . . Are you with me? [Do you understand]?'

You say, 'I understand.'

a prisoner says 'Lift the keys, kill them, whatever. I dont care. Just do it quickly and do it quietly. Don't know how much longer before they move us to a new location. This may be our only chance to escape.'

Need actual dialogues. These are transcriptions.

Next, head to Katta, where you will find two guards at the TOP level. Guard Lennon is in the western building at the very top (at -540, -1760), and Guard Zimmer is in the graveyard/mansion to the southeast at the very top, at +295, -820, +2.

Guard Zimmer sees through SoS. Sneak in through a hidden wall in the building and backstab him (you will kill him in one hit). Loot a Rough-hewn Shackle Key.

Pickpocket Guard Lennon to get the Shar Vahl Cell Key, which is TEMPORARY and which identifies as "This key might open the cells in Shar Vahl."

Head back to Shar Vahl. Make your way to "a prisoner" (/loc? are there two different versions of "a prisoner?") by unlocking the cell door with the Shar Vahl Cell Key. Hand the prisoner the Rough-hewn Shackle Key and he will turn into Nichols.


You have freed Nichols, completing the second task of the Smuggler's Camp.

You gain experience!!

(Need all dialogues, locations, faction hits, etc.)

Three

Follow the dialogue and get a Sealed Silver Package.

Head to Qeynos. No matter how you zone in, you will be placed in the same spot in the northeast part of the zone.

You need to sneak into Crow's Tavern in North Qeynos. Hang out in the corner near the Priest of Discord and learn the guards' movements. Guards include Elite Guard Lika, Elite Guard Sarve, Elite Guard Inski, and Elite Guard Lewot. Sneak inside (look out for the Lewot inside).

Use the door that leads to the hidden wall to go to the hidden rogue guild, and hide there until the guards path past. Once a guard is near the door standing still, give the package to Crow. You have completed this task.


You have smuggled the mysterious package into Qeynos, completing the third task for the Smuggler's Camp.

(Need all dialogues, names of guards involved, locations, etc.)

Finale

Head back to the shady highpass citizen and say "done." If you have not yet done your epic 1.0, he will shake your hand and welcome you to the Circle of Unseen Hands a la Stanos.

Need all dialogues, exact names of mobs, /locs, faction hits if any, etc.

These quests begin in Highpass Hold. You may want to use an illusion so guards and citizens do not attack you. These quests take only a few hours.

-----------

Quest One

[Sun Mar 23 10:02:12 2014] You have entered Highpass Hold.

Find the a Shady Highpass Citizen inside the Tiger's Roar.

[Sun Mar 23 10:04:58 2014] You say, 'Hail, a shady Highpass citizen'
Your Location is -109, 617, -16.
P -617.0497, 109.1258, -16.0453, 240, 0, 0, 3, shady_highpass_citizen

[Sun Mar 23 10:04:59 2014] a shady Highpass citizen says 'Take a load off and join me for awhile, Talduen. The Tiger's Roar is the best watering hole in Antonica. I come here every day to relax and take in the gorgeous view.' He glances around at the other patrons of the tavern. 'See what I mean? Like I said... Best bar this side of Norrath. Now, if you are interested in talking business, I can't help but to assume that you are here because you wish to ingratiate yourself with Stanos and his lot. It just so happens that I know of several jobs they need taken care of. If you completed all three, then informed me when you were [done], I imagine it would get you in their good graces. What will it be, hmm? [One], [two], or [three]?'

[Sun Mar 23 10:05:24 2014] You say, 'One'

[Sun Mar 23 10:05:24 2014] a shady Highpass citizen holds up a small but ornate urn, 'I have a trinket here that happens to be quite valuable. As you may have guessed, it was not obtained legally, which in and of itself isn't usually a problem. However, the previous owner happens to be a wealthy and influential nobleman who happens to have offered a sizable reward for its return. The reward is even higher should the mercenaries bring back heads of the perpetrators. Who would have known that the ashes of the old codger's ancestor would mean so much to him? Now, I'm the type that likes to keep his head on his shoulders. We need to get rid of this, and soon, but we're not willing to write it off as a loss. You look like you could play the 'trustworthy' type. Why don't you buy the urn from me and take it to the Keep Casino. Trade it in for chips. Play a few games, cash in early and walk away with the money. Everybody wins. Act casual. Don't give yourself away.'

[Sun Mar 23 10:12:11 2014] a shady Highpass citizen says 'Welcome to my shop, Talduen. You would probably find a Mead handy.'

[Sun Mar 23 10:12:13 2014] a shady Highpass citizen tells you, 'That'll be 2099 platinum 9 gold 9 silver 9 copper for the Gold-Leafed Urn.'

[Sun Mar 23 10:12:23 2014] You give 2099 platinum 9 gold 9 silver 9 copper to a shady Highpass citizen.

Go to the casino in High Keep with the urn. You will play hands of cards until a noble says something about you looking "unsettling" at which point you will want to cash out.

[Sun Mar 23 10:28:35 2014] You have entered High Keep.

[Sun Mar 23 10:35:00 2014] You say, 'Hail, Dealer Maeline'
[Sun Mar 23 10:35:00 2014] Dealer Maeline says 'Greetings, Talduen.'
[Sun Mar 23 10:35:03 2014] Your Location is -100.62, -327.66, 29.75
P 327, 100, 29, 0, 0, 0, 3, Dealer_Maeline

Give the urn to Dealer Maeline.

[Sun Mar 23 10:35:54 2014] Dealer Maeline passes the urn to Guard Kovan for safekeeping. She slides her left hand down her right sleeve and vice versa. 'Welcome to the Highkeep Casino, Talduen. The urn you brought is worth 1500 credits. Let me know at any time if you want me to [deal you a hand], or if you'd rather [cash out].'

[Sun Mar 23 10:35:54 2014] You gain experience!!

[Sun Mar 23 10:35:58 2014] You say, 'deal you a hand'

[Sun Mar 23 10:35:58 2014] Dealer Maeline deftly shuffles the cards together. 'Just a moment, hon, I'm still shuffling.' (You have to wait a little)

[Sun Mar 23 10:36:25 2014] You say, 'deal you a hand'

[Sun Mar 23 10:36:25 2014] Dealer Maeline sweeps the cards from the table. 'Great! You won several hands that round!'

[Sun Mar 23 10:36:25 2014] Dealer Maeline says 'You now have 1600 chips to gamble with. Let me know at any time if you want me to [deal you a hand], or if you'd rather [cash out].'

[Sun Mar 23 10:36:25 2014] Guard Kovan glares at you with distrust.

[Sun Mar 23 10:37:13 2014] You say, 'deal you a hand'

[Sun Mar 23 10:37:13 2014] Dealer Maeline sweeps the cards from the table. 'Great! You won several hands that round!'

[Sun Mar 23 10:37:13 2014] Dealer Maeline says 'You now have 1700 chips to gamble with. Let me know at any time if you want me to [deal you a hand], or if you'd rather [cash out].'

[Sun Mar 23 10:37:13 2014] Guard Kovan gives you a stern look of disapproval.

[Sun Mar 23 10:37:25 2014] You say, 'deal you a hand'

[Sun Mar 23 10:37:26 2014] Dealer Maeline sweeps the cards from the table. 'Great! You won several hands that round!'

[Sun Mar 23 10:37:26 2014] Dealer Maeline says 'You now have 1800 chips to gamble with. Let me know at any time if you want me to [deal you a hand], or if you'd rather [cash out].'

[Sun Mar 23 10:37:26 2014] Guard Kovan gives you a stern look of disapproval.

[Sun Mar 23 10:37:26 2014] a noble says 'Yes, but some of your other patrons have a most unsettling look about them. It's as if you would let in any old thing off the street!'

[Sun Mar 23 10:37:36 2014] You say, 'cash out'

[Sun Mar 23 10:37:36 2014] Dealer Maeline says 'Thanks for playing, Talduen. Here are your winnings. Come back to our establishment again anytime.'

[Sun Mar 23 10:37:36 2014] You receive 1800 platinum .

[Sun Mar 23 10:37:36 2014] In yellow text: You have unloaded the stolen urn, completing the first task for the Smuggler's Camp.

This completes the first quest. Go back to the shady citizen in Highpass Hold to start the second quest.

--------------------

Quest Two

[Sun Mar 23 10:40:55 2014] You say, 'Hail, a shady Highpass citizen'

[Sun Mar 23 10:40:55 2014] a shady Highpass citizen says 'Take a load off and join me for awhile, Talduen. The Tiger's Roar is the best watering hole in Antonica. I come here every day to relax and take in the gorgeous view.' He glances around at the other patrons of the tavern. 'See what I mean? Like I said... Best bar this side of Norrath. Now, if you are interested in talking business, I can't help but to assume that you are here because you wish to ingratiate yourself with Stanos and his lot. It just so happens that I know of several jobs they need taken care of. If you completed all three, then informed me when you were [done], I imagine it would get you in their good graces. What will it be, hmm? [One], [two], or [three]?'

[Sun Mar 23 10:40:58 2014] You say, 'two'

[Sun Mar 23 10:40:59 2014] a shady Highpass citizen says 'Fabulous choice.' He pauses to light a cigar, taking short puffs of air into his mouth to coax it aflame. 'There's a man that goes by the name of Nichols who was slated to deliver a shipment of Luclinite, ohhh, about two weeks ago. And when I say deliver I mean smuggle. He's a reliable type, one of Stanos' best men, so it stands to reason that he's probably been caught and incarcerated. Right about now, I imagine he's locked up tighter than a sister in the crying seas. That's just a figure of speech, mind you. We don't know where he is. If you could find him and release him, well, that'd be fabulous.' He takes another long puff and continues. 'Do whatever you have to.'

Nichols is being held in Shar Vahl, although you won't be able to see him until the final turn in for the quest.

[Sun Mar 23 10:47:43 2014] You have entered The City of Shar Vahl.

[Sun Mar 23 10:50:19 2014] You say, 'Hail, a prisoner'
[Sun Mar 23 10:50:17 2014] Your Location is 135.05, -618.58, -235.94
P 618, -135, -235, 0, 0, 0, 3, a_prisoner

[Sun Mar 23 10:50:19 2014] a prisoner leans forward and whispers, 'Psst, you'll never get the guards here to budge. They don't make deals, don't take bribes and they are much too careful to catch by surprise. If you promise to help me, I can tell you [where to find the keys].'

[Sun Mar 23 10:50:36 2014] You say, 'where to find the keys'

[Sun Mar 23 10:50:36 2014] a prisoner nods and continues to whisper, 'Before we were brought to these cells, we were held in Katta briefly. I bet you'd find a keys to these blasted cages and another key to our shackles there, and the best part is that the guards are much more careless... Are you with me? [Do you understand]?'

[Sun Mar 23 10:50:52 2014] You say, 'Do you understand'

[Sun Mar 23 10:50:52 2014] a prisoner says 'Lift the keys, kill them, whatever. I don't care. Just do it quickly and do it quietly. Don't know how much longer before they move us to a new location. This may be our only chance to escape.'

Head to Katta Castellum for the keys.

[Sun Mar 23 11:03:14 2014] You have entered Katta Castellum.

Guard Lennon is in the graveyard. Pickpocket a Shar Vahl Cell Key from him.
[Sun Mar 23 11:11:43 2014] Your Location is -541.99, -1759.35, 3.75
P 1759, 541, 3, 0, 0, 0, 3, Guard_Lennon
[Sun Mar 23 11:14:38 2014] You have stolen a Shar Vahl Cell Key

Guard Zimmer is on the first floor of the western building. You must kill him in one hit with a hide/sneak backstab. It is suggested to use the "kyv strike" line to ensure you kill him with your backstab. If he is not killed in one backstab, he can hit for 6k+.
[Sun Mar 23 11:22:29 2014] Your Location is 306.89, -820.25, 3.75
P 820, -306, 3, 0, 0, 0, 3, Guard_Zimmer

[Sun Mar 23 11:25:11 2014] You take careful aim at your opponent.
[Sun Mar 23 11:25:12 2014] You backstab Guard Zimmer for 105848 points of damage.
[Sun Mar 23 11:25:12 2014] Guard Zimmer's corpse collapses to the floor.
[Sun Mar 23 11:25:12 2014] You have slain Guard Zimmer!
[Sun Mar 23 11:25:12 2014] You gain experience!!
[Sun Mar 23 11:25:20 2014] --You have looted a Rough-hewn Shackle Key.--

Now head back to Shar Vahl with your two keys. Use your cell key on the empty cell next to the prisoner you first spoke with. It will open and Nichols will spawn. Give him the shackle key.

[Sun Mar 23 11:30:44 2014] You have entered The City of Shar Vahl.
[Sun Mar 23 11:33:02 2014] You try the Cell Key on the lock and it's a perfect fit.
--Give the shackle key to Nichols--
[Sun Mar 23 11:33:11 2014] Nichols unlocks his manacles and stands up. As he dusts himself off and stretches out his limbs, he greets you, 'Well met, Talduen. You have my thanks, but more importantly, I think you'll find that assisting our faction comes with great rewards.'
[Sun Mar 23 11:33:11 2014] You gain experience!!
[Sun Mar 23 11:33:11 2014] Yellow Text: You have freed Nichols, completing the second task for the Smuggler's Camp.

End of second quest.

---------------------------

Quest Three

[Sun Mar 23 12:34:16 2014] You say, 'Hail, a shady Highpass citizen'

[Sun Mar 23 12:34:17 2014] a shady Highpass citizen says 'Take a load off and join me for awhile, Talduen. The Tiger's Roar is the best watering hole in Antonica. I come here every day to relax and take in the gorgeous view.' He glances around at the other patrons of the tavern. 'See what I mean? Like I said... Best bar this side of Norrath. Now, if you are interested in talking business, I can't help but to assume that you are here because you wish to ingratiate yourself with Stanos and his lot. It just so happens that I know of several jobs they need taken care of. If you completed all three, then informed me when you were [done], I imagine it would get you in their good graces. What will it be, hmm? [One], [two], or [three]?'

[Sun Mar 23 12:34:20 2014] You say, 'three'

[Sun Mar 23 12:34:20 2014] a shady Highpass citizen leans in close and whispers, 'You aren't above a bit of smuggling yourself, I hope. I've got a package that needs to make it to Crow in Qeynos. The guards are expecting its arrival and have increased their numbers and heightened their watch. Fortunately for us, they don't know that we know that they know. On top of that, they'll be expecting someone from the Highpass camp. Do you understand? The bottom line is, this shipment must reach Crow in Qeynos, and the deliverer mustn't get caught. That's all you really need to know. I'm counting on you to not botch this job, Talduen.'

You get a Sealed Silver Package for Crow in North Qeynos. You can do this the easy way and COTH or res right next to crow when no guards are near, or you can do it the hard way and get to crow on foot (need to learn Elite Guard's pathing and move little by little). Once near Crow, give him the package and you are finished with the quest. The guards basically one hit you if you get too close. You always zone into the NE corner so coming from other zone lines does not help. If you fail, you will have to get the package again from the shady citizen in Highpass.

[Sun Mar 23 12:38:31 2014] You have entered North Qeynos.
[Sun Mar 23 12:38:35 2014] A gruff voice shouts, 'Stay alert, men. Word is that the package will be delivered shortly. The smuggler is likely already here.'
Get to Crow however you like and give him the Sealed Silver Package.
[Sun Mar 23 13:43:21 2014] Crow opens the package and examines the contents, then quickly shuts it again. 'You can go now.'
[Sun Mar 23 13:43:21 2014] You gain party experience!!
[Sun Mar 23 13:43:21 2014] Yellow text: You have smuggled the mysterious package into Qeynos, completing the third task for the Smuggler's Camp.

------------

Now that you have done all 3 quests, head back to the shady citizen in Highpass.

[Sun Mar 23 13:47:44 2014] You say, 'Hail, a shady Highpass citizen'

[Sun Mar 23 13:47:44 2014] a shady Highpass citizen says 'Take a load off and join me for awhile, Talduen. The Tiger's Roar is the best watering hole in Antonica. I come here every day to relax and take in the gorgeous view.' He glances around at the other patrons of the tavern. 'See what I mean? Like I said... Best bar this side of Norrath. Now, if you are interested in talking business, I can't help but to assume that you are here because you wish to ingratiate yourself with Stanos and his lot. It just so happens that I know of several jobs they need taken care of. If you completed all three, then informed me when you were [done], I imagine it would get you in their good graces. What will it be, hmm? [One], [two], or [three]?'

[Sun Mar 23 13:47:46 2014] You say, 'done'

[Sun Mar 23 13:47:46 2014] a shady Highpass citizen says 'So you are.' He extends his palm and shakes your hand in an unfamiliar fashion. 'You've paid your dues Talduen, both literally and figuratively. Let me be the first to warmly welcome you to our little circle.'

You can now speak to Stanos Herkanor and start the Rogue 1.5 quest.

"A prisoner" in SharVahl
# Feb 16 2014 at 2:41 PM Rating: Decent

72 posts
There are four jail cells in Shar Vahl. One contains three "a prisoner"s and it is the only one that has "a prisoner" in it. One of the three prisoners is close to the door and he responds to your hail with the quest dialog. Once you have gotten the necessary keys and return, you find that the "Shar Vahl Cell Key" does not work on the door with the three prisoners. There is an apparently empty cell right beside their cell. Use the "Shar Vahl Cell Key" to open this door and the correct "a prisoner" will appear. Give him the Rough-hewn Shackle Key and you are good to go.

hiya everyone ,
Just wanted to say I am a bard and wanted to get a shakey's noggin for an illusion mask but no rogues had any extra ones lying around.. So I thought hey i'll just shroud down to a lvl 70 rogue and start the 1.5 prequest .. so i did and was able to complete all 1.5 prequest and start the 1.5 in rogue shroud form .. have not gotten to the noggin part yet in 1.5 but i dont see any troubles ..

1st part - casino was easy find casino hand urn in to dealer she gives you 1500 credits play till you have 1800 credits and look for guard kovan to say something like When asking her to deal you a hand, you do not need to hit 2000 coins like this guide says, you just need to get 'a noble' to say "Yes, but some of your other patrons have a most unsettling look about them. It's as if you would let in any old thing off the street!" For me, this happened at 1800 coins so i cashed out and task stage completed ..

2nd part- couple of problems i ran into on the prequest is when getting the keys for the 2nd part if you end up dying for some reason the keys go poof i did guard lennon pickpocketed him failed few times on skill but 5th or so try snatched the key went to do guard zimmer and tried to BS his arse and must of missed or didnt do a good one and he killed me he turns into a mofo if you dont get it on the first try died twice on him (thats how i realized lost the key i had from lennon) so finally snuck up on him and hit BS and Bs'd him for 60k and he died bam instant . 2nd time i died to him i brought my bst over lvl 100 thinking no sweat my bst will clobber him lol lvl 100 bst was melling him full burn with pet and never got him down below 97% so FD on bst logged rogue out and back in to wipe agro snuck up with rogue and thats when i killed him .. went to shar val did the hand in got that part done .

3rd part- was a snap if you have a mage bring mage into qeynos where crow is CoTH rogue (who is already s/s invised) right next to the merchant in back room behind crow .. wait for guard to roam away from crow then give package to crow viola all done .. went back to HH haild a shady dude again said done and all completed ..

1.5 Epic start---

on the 1.5 epic page says you can do alot ofo the stuff in any order so I didnt start from the begining sense all i need is shakey's noggin i went straight to that part went to rivervalel hailed shakey did the dialogue with reebo went to Erudin got the torn page from sornita and so far thats as far as ive gotten but like i said i dont see a issue with doing it in shroud form as of yet..

After I cashed out from the dealer and went back to the shady citizen I said "done" and he said im not done, what do I do? did I do something wrong?
Doing it the right way

One: At 1900 chips I got a message "Guard Kvovan turns his attention to the nobles, "Glad you folks could make it tonight. I trust you were treated well at dinner?"
The key here is obviously distraction. Look for this message then "Cash Out"
Also, I received 1900 Plat when cashing out.

Two: As stated well below in 2007 I think, neither guard is on the top of anything. The guard to pickpocket is in the back left corner of the graveyard. The guard to backstab is located in a north central building with two crazy bat-wolf looking creatures in the couryard. Enter the main door, turn left and run through a wall. Sneak/Hide and use Assassin's Strike or similar. Hit him for over 60k no issues. Now you have both keys, Origin back to PoK, take the stone to Shar Vahl. Open the second left door and receive a message about the key fitting perfectly. Go back to the first cell and give the key to any of the three "a prisoner". I hailed them all and they all gave me the starting dialogue for the quest. Once you've given "a prisoner" the key, he turns into the named and the task is completed.

More to follow

NOTE: Admin's need to update this page. It's god awful and misleading.

Three: Elite guards see though Sneak/Hide but not a huge aggro range. Crow is at the bar loc +90, +258. +2. Wait for guard inside to pat to door, handed in. Guards became non KOS once I gave Crow the box. However, if you were hated by them before I'm sure you'll still be.

Now off to 1.5 epic.

Dealer Maeline loc and info

Dealer Maeline is at loc neg 98, neg 330 1 floor up in Highhold Keep, Kings Court. The info on dialogue is slightly incorrect, which cost me 2100pp to find out.

When asking her to deal you a hand, you do not need to hit 2000 coins like this guide says, you just need to get 'a noble' to say "Yes, but some of your other patrons have a most unsettling look about them. It's as if you would let in any old thing off the street!" For me, this happened at 1800 coins. I made the mistake of asking for one more hand as I presumed I also had to be at 2000 coins and ended up in the Highhold Keep prison and I lost the urn.

So get that message and then say "Cash out" to the dealer regardless of how many coins you are at.

Just followed your instructions, 1800 in chips and message "Yes, but some of your other patrons have a most unsettling look about them. It's as if you would let in any old thing off the street!" and ended up in jail. Item is not for sale right now. Moving on to part two and will get back to this.

So here is my attempt at a running guide for the Rogue 1.5 Pre-Quest with only much needed information.

Task 1 : You need to watch specifically for the message about Guard Kozan turning to a noble and asking them if they were treated well at dinner. It happened at 1900 both times I did it. Yes I failed it the first time trying to go to 2000 as the guide above states.

Task 2 : Lennon is in the Graveyard, if yer like me, and have no Pick pocket skill, get a couple of 90 friends and prepare for a 10mil health battle, thats what it parsed at least, not sure if its regen based, but we had 90 Warrior/Cleric Merc and a 90 Zerker (My main) burning on him for the greater part of 20 minutes . . So I am gunna guess its a mix of both.

Zimmer is in the building just SE of the Tenebrous Mountains zoneline. When you walk into the building, immediately turn to your left (South) and run into the wall between the torches, and Sneak/Hide Backstab (I used Kyv Strike to make sure I hit) and BTW -- Its funny to backstab something for 112413 dmg.

After those 2, head back to Shar Vahl (I skipped the intro part, just went for the items) I will note that I took the portal from PoK, from zone in, just tracked the Warrior Guildmaster, when yer running into the building its located in, instead of turning right to go down the stairs, go left, and you will be at the cell block. The person you talk to is in the first cell on the left, but when you have the Keys, you need to unlock the 2nd door on the left, to spawn the prisoner who turns into Nichols.

Task 3 : Okay, so I was a little confused here, I am a Halfling, Agnostic, everything in Qeynos regarded me as an Ally, I just walked in, and turn the box in, no sneaking necessary, got completion, and zoned back out.

When you do the 2nd part of this you have to free Nicholas. I had a problem with the keys from the event vanishing on me randomly. (They may have a timer). The guy is inside the warriors guild on the bottom floor, you'll see a guard standing there down in the right area. When I went down there was a room with 3 a prisoners in it. Speak with one of them to get your response. However, when you get the keys that is not the correct cell. Its actually the cell to the right of that one that appears empty. Open that cell with the key and it says "You try the Cell Key on the lock and it's a perfect fit." Then you can hand the key into that prisoner, he turns into Nicholas and you get the update. Hope this helps! :)

A shady Highpass citizen holds up a small but ornate urn. 'I have a trinket here that appears to be quite valuable. As you may have guessed, it was not obtained legally which, in and of itself usually isn't a problem. However, the previous owner happens to be a wealthy and influential nobleman who happens to have offered a sizable reward for its return. The reward is even higher should the mercenaries bring back heads of the perpetrators. Who would have known the ashes of the old codger's ancestors would mean so much to him? Now, I'm the type that likes to keep his head on his shoulders. We need to get rid of this, and soon, but we're not willing to write it off as a loss. You look like you could play the 'trustworthy' type. Why don't you buy the urn from me and take it to the Keep Casino. Trade it in for chips. Play a few games, cash in early and walk away with the money. Everybody wins. Act casual. Don't give yourself away.

1. Both Guards in Katta are on the ground lvl not the TOP lvl as posted. Also if your looking in any building for Lennon your wrong, he is in the graveyard where the gargoyle building is to the left kneeling down by a grave.

2. When doing part 3, IF YOU DO DIE you must return back to the shady highpass citizen and get your box to hand back to Crow again. The Elite Guards will eat your turn in when they kill you. *Note* The guards will kill you within 1-2 hits. 8k a hit depending on your aa's/lvl/gear.

3. I got a CoTH straight into the room with Crow, my mage waited till he pathed to the door CoTH'ed me and i spun around and handed in followed by a Gate Potion for a quick evac.

Ok, just completed the Third Task, where you have to give Crow a package but have to get past Elite guards that see through SoS.

Well, here is how I did it. First of all you will have to be level 60+. This is a must. 2nd, get a mage that can cast Call of Heroes. Third, go to spiritshroud keepers and turn into a lvl 60+ earth elemental Fighter. Don't worry about setting up AAs. All you need to do is set up Hotkey for Monster Ability Plane Shift: Ethereal. This make you invunerable for 30 seconds.

Now with the package zone into North Qeynos with mage. Have mage go to Crow's bar and through the secret door in back left room. Have him go partly down the stairs and then have him cast Call of Heroes.

Now before you go all the way up the stairs, because the elite guards can see through the secret door, activate Plane Shift: Ethereal. Run to Crow, give him the box, once you get the message that completes the task, Run to South Qeynos zone behind the building you are in.

And there you have it

If you fail quest number 1 the shady citizen has to respawn before he gives you another chance to buy the urn as he only has one in stock... and I've failed 3 times so I'm not a very happy camper... So don't fail.. and if you do, take a break before you try and get one again; or you'll be sitting there for quite awhile cursing at him to give you the urn again.

The trick to Guard Zimmer is to use your sneak attack, which guarantees a Backstab.

Now my question is about Guard Lennon. What skill level do you need to Pick Pocket him? I have a skill of 220 and nothing after about 40 tries.

Update: Finally was succeful pickpocketing Guard Lennon with a skill level of 242, and even then it took awhile.

The prisoner you do the turn in for Part 2 in Shar Vahl:
I just did this and the prisoner is not visible until you open the cell door. However, he is located in the far left cell as you come down the stairs. Once the door is open, the prisoner will appear and you just hand him the rough hewn shackle key.

I'm guessing its a stroke of luck if you kill Guard Zimmer with one backstab. Maybe they should update that part.

I finally found him with my rogue, came up behind him and BS'ed, well tried to. He hit me for 9k killing me. I guess IF you hit him, you will kill hit with one hit. That is kind of different from You WILL kill him with one hit.

If you come from Teneb Mountains he's in the mansion directly in South East. Enter the house, stay left (do not go through the second door) and go through the fake wall between the two shelves on the south side.

I hit him for 102.616; more should be possible with buffs :)

Whats the point of this? is this merely for faction or what? I not see a reward and don't see the need for doing this or this is soe's idea of giving of rogues more stuff to do?

I've already done my 1.0 and my faction is kindly in high keep and all major epic npc's. All the npc's involved in 1.5/2.0 talk to me nicely. lol

I was kos before I started my epic. but then I did a faction quest I found in north qeynos. The funny thing is, you dont even have to complete it.
You go to the first npc and get cards and hand them to the second npc over and over. I actually was handing 8 bags of cards at a time in to him.
You just say the phrase "What is the shipment?" to
Knargon Lanenda in North Qeynos over and over again till you fill your bags with Bent Playing Card, then go outside gates to a delf who only spawns at night named Jracol Brestiage. Since you're a rogue, you can be
kos to this guy and still hand in from behind.

When you zone in Qeynos with the box in your inventory, you will warp on NE corner of the map and elite guards will pop. They see thru SoS and will charge you on sight. They hit for 8-11k and should kill you in 1 single blow so you don't want any aggro. There is guards inside and outside the city. They will con ready to attack to you only , all others will be ally.

Get someone to assist you on this task. Pull all the guards outside and kite them around while the rogue sneaks in and hand the box to Crow.

Nichols has been moved to the shar vahl prison thats inside the arena, he is located in an empty cell. a prisoner spawned in the empty cell after I used the cell key.

You say, 'Hail, a prisoner

a prisoner leans forward and whispers. Psst, you'll never get the guards here to budge, they dont make deals, don't take bribes and they are much to careful to catch by suprise. If you promise to help me, I will tell you [where to find the keys].

You say, 'where to find the keys'

A prisoner nods and continues to whisper, 'Before we were brought to these cells, we were held in Katta briefly. I bet you'd find a keys to these blasted cages and another key to our shackles there, and the best part is the guards are much more careless. . . Are you with me? [Do you understand]?

You say, 'do you understand'

a prisoner says 'Lift the keys, kill them, whatever. I dont care. Just do it quickly and do it quietly. Don't know how much longer before they move us to a new location. This may be our only chance to escape.
