Archaeologist Flottwit may be found at +45, -5.

From the Dec. 7, 2005 patch message:

Archaeologist Flottwit has uncovered a cache of older Darkhollow items and is currently searching the bazaar for some of the newer items for comparison. If you have a Depths of Darkhollow item that changed from tradeable to no trade with the last patch and you'd prefer to have the old tradeable item instead, give the no trade version to Flottwit and he'll give you the old tradeable item in return. Flottwit will only be around until the next patch.


You say, 'Hail, Archaeologist Flottwit'

Archaeologist Flottwit says 'Good day to you ______. As much as I'd love to chat, I'm a bit busy trying to find samples of some of the [items] that have recently come out of Darkhollow.'

You say, 'What items?'

Archaeologist Flottwit says 'I unearthed a large cache of artifacts from deep within Darkhollow and found that they look suprisingly similar to some of the newer items that adventurers have been uncovering. I'm trying to locate a few samples of these new items for comparison. If you have one and are willing to part with it, just hand it to me. I have a large number of the artifacts I found so I'll give you one of those in return.'

Handing in item XXX nets you Archaic XXX, with a possible degradation in quality:

Archaeologist Flottwit says 'Ahh, yes this is one of them! The similarity is absolutely striking. Thank you, ______. I'll hold onto this for further study. Please, take this in return. I believe it's a predecessor to the item you gave me.'

If you try to hand in an item he won't accept, you'll see:

Archaeologist Flottwit says 'Hrm, no, this doesn't look anything like the artifacts I uncovered. You can have it back.'

Flottwit hasn't disappeared yet. We need to know whether any items that work are missing from the list.

As of today: April 13, '08, the exchange still works for this item. I believe all the item information can be found on the original item info. For this it would be Wand of Dark Waters...from Ruins of Illsalin, in the arena area, A Forgotten Guardian. Fairly common named in that area, and you can see him holding the wand when he has it as loot.

I already own the "wand of dark waters", I'm interested in getting my hands on the other stuff.

Your post was posted in the wrong section and wrong topic. You're not being helpful. Post it on that item you mentioned, this is where people will discuss the actual quest and npc, etc.

drop info

let's forget the details of the quest and start sharing info about how and where to camp these items. People prob don't tell anyone so they can farm them and sell for huge plat amounts, but I actually would like to obtain some of them just for my own personal use and I really don't care if they're no trade. I could careless even if I don't even make any plat just by learning what I want to know about these items.
drop info

from what it looks like, some of these items drop in stoneroot, Illslain, and various other zones with similar mobs.

So someone must know a bit more, about the caster usable versions of these items, if the melee and healer stuff is already released. Hint.

Hand in your Shiliskin Myrmidon Sword

Archaeologist Flottwit says 'Ahh, yes this is one of them! The similarity is absolutely striking. Thank you, Wwein. I'll hold onto this for further study. Please, take this in return. I believe it's a predecessor to the item you gave me.'

You receive Archaic Shiliskin Myrmidon Sword in return

Trying to hand the Archaic Shiliskin Myrmidon Sword to Archaeologist Flottwit fails. Handing it, or any other failing item prompted the following response:

Archaeologist Flottwit says 'Hrm, no, this doesn't look anything like the artifacts I uncovered. You can have it back.'
