Historian Pewdri is found on the ground floor of Crescent Reach at -1415, -1610.

You say, 'Hail, Historian Pewdri'

Historian Pewdri says 'Hello there, adventurer. Are you by any chance heading out into the [Moors]?'

You say, 'Moors?'

Historian Pewdri says 'Hum, well you see, I am rather tied down with paperwork here within the city, but I would rather be out in the field at heart. I've been trying to find some like-minded scholars who would be willing to [collect] some relics for me.'

You say, 'What do you want to collect?'

Historian Pewdri says 'I am researching the ogres that once lived here. I have had luck finding a relic here and there, but could really use some more. There is a ruined [tower] in particular that may hold an item or two.'

You say, 'What tower?'

Historian Pewdri says 'It's a rather creepy area, to be honest. I have been dying to check it out myself, but I am afraid I won't make it out myself for a few days. Would you be willing to search for some [relics] or [exotic remains]?'

You say, 'I will search for relics.'

You have been assigned the task 'Pieces of the Past'.

Historian Pewdri says 'Fantastic! Please let me know what you recover.'

Collect 10 Ogre Relics (0/10) - Blightfire Moors
Go to the tower in the northwest corner of Blightfire Moors. Kill "a watchtower guardian" until you loot 10 x Ogre Relic. Does this drop from any other mobs?

Deliver 10 Ogre Relics (0/10) - Crescent Reach

Return to Crescent Reach and give the relics to Historian Pewdri.

Historian Pewdri says 'Thanks so much for your help.'
Pewdri rummages through the small pile of relics you've brought back. After carefully examining each one, he smiles and pulls a few coins from his purse, handing them to you.

You gain experience!!
You have successfully been granted your reward for: Pieces of the Past

You receive a Sphere of the Ancients.

Need all task stages and descriptions.

I did this task today but was denied the award. I cannot figure out why. I did not have the item before or on me. I checked out to see if I had its equivalent, but could not find or determine that. Any ideas?
Can hand in stack fine

Just wanted to point out I did this quest today and was able to hand in the entire stack of 10 relics with no problem. Got my reward and update fine.

And i'm not sure why it says "No" next to shrouded. I did this quest shrouded down to level 40 fine.

The first step is: Collect 10 Ogre Relics 0/10 Blightfire Moors
When that is done: Deliver 10 Ogre Relics 0/10 Crescent Reach

The people who had problems turning in the relics were doing this quest back when EQ still allowed you to try to turn in stacks of items, which explains why they were being rejected.

"The people who had problems turning in the relics were doing this quest back when EQ still allowed you to try to turn in stacks of items, which explains why they were being rejected."

Been playing this game since 1999, and I have never been able to turn in a stack of items on a quest.

You can sell stacks of items, buy stacks of items, but you can not turn in stacks of items, or combine stacks of items.

Actually many years ago you certainly could turn in stacks of items, but it would only register as a single item. I think the same was true of tradeskills, but my memory is a little more hazy there.

Edit: Although I should mention this was long before Blightfire or this quest ever existed.

This is a good place to group up for, but definitely not a solo job until high 30's. This quest is crap, little itty bitty aug for getting your bum kicked all over the place. It's not worth the trouble.

I would have to disagree with above post .. u can solo this quest in the 30s.. +5 atk and +1mana regen(not to mention the admittedly minor HME stats) is a nice boost in the mid game. Just my opinion.

Did you check to see if you killed the correct number of assigned mobs (if there is any)? Some of these quests require you to kill a certain number of a particluar mob. Maybe you have to kill 10 Watchtower Guardians and collect 10 ogre relics before you can turn in items.

One thing to mention, they -do- cast Screaming Terror, which is a necro mez spell. Several times, I've pulled one that was pathing into the tower, only to have him mez me, walk in, and bring about 8 friends when mez finally wore off.

Very rare.. 1 in 10 (50%? MUST HAVE BEEN NERFED) at best off lookouts.
1 in 3 off the actual Watchtower Guardians. The guardians do hit hard ( 80 and above at times ) and cast darkness and other dots, so the lookouts might ber a better option for lower levels. NOT a lvl 20 or lower quest by anymeans... unless u have a solid grp or a red con friend )

No way is this doable solo at level 25.

I soloed it as a non-twinked 40 Ranger. That went ok. They nuke for about 200+

Ycuzz has it correct. I have been leveling my Necro there (Quested armors only; I have been playing this more 'old school" rather than twinking), and have had the quest since level 30. These guys were nuking me down for 269 or so per nuke. Even single pulls with pet beating on mob took me down in about 4-5 nukes. The Nukes stun, interrupting my attempts to Life Tap and restore health or to Feign Death.

Mobs tend to be level 35-36 as far as I can tell at this point, and are definitely not limited to only one level upon spawning.

I have successfully killed them at levels 33+, but it has been close, and getting single pulls, without adds or the Witch adding is a process of being VERY patient.

The quest was obviously meant to be a group quest, since solo players cannot work this at the earliest point they can get the quest.
