    This is the first task in a series of three. It begins with Zhubis the Griffin Tamer at location +960, -1045 in Direwind (this is south of Gatekeeper Kor, on the other side of the valley).

    You say, 'Hail, Zhubis the Griffin Tamer'

    Zhubis the Griffin Tamer glances from side to side, to ensure no one is watching, 'You've got a lot of nerve coming here, ____. I'll give you that. But if you [despise] the ground that Dyn`leth walks upon as much as I do, then maybe we can assist one another.'

    You say, 'I despise the ground'

    Zhubis the Griffin Tamer nods, 'Then we are of the same mind, and this meeting is a fortuitous one. I'm not sure how you knew that I wished to speak to an outsider. I told no one. If I had it would have meant my execution. What I do understand is that I was born into a world for someone else's cause, meant to die for someone else's flawed beliefs. Though this has afforded me some interesting [information] that I could share.'

    You say, 'What information?'

    Zhubis the Griffin Tamer says 'With my inside knowledge of Dyn`leth's army and the temple, I'm sure we could wreak some havoc on the inner workings of Ashengate.'

    You have been assigned the task 'Sabotage'.

    You receive Zhubis' Collectors Satchel

    Listen closely. Though the Reliquary may appear solid, it is in a rather precarious position, poised over the maw of an active and unstable volcano. There are place in the temple where the ancient supports strain under the crushing weight of tons of stone. There are places where you can hear the walls literally groan under the pressure. It's a miracle that Ashengate hasn't sunk into the lava and become one giant caldera years ago. Now, if an individual were to take advantage of this knowledge, and said individual were to place blasting charges in the right places and set them off at the right time, the results could be absolutely devastating. The volcano might re-erupt, the rooms in the west wing might collapse completely, and the jagged precipices in the east wing might separate and tumble from the mountainside. Who can say?

    NOTE: You cannot preloot items in this task.

    Collect 1 sample of Ashen Powder 0/1 (Ashengate, Reliquary of the Scale)

    Drops off drakes in East wing.

    Collect 1 Worker's Pouch 0/1 (Ashengate, Reliquary of the Scale)

    Drops off drakkin in East wing

    Collect 1 Magma Infused Crystal 0/1 (Ashengate, Reliquary of the Scale)

    Ground-spawn in East Wing. Three locs for your ashengate map file:

    P 825.4031, -903.9589, -44.8486, 0, 0, 240, 3, crystal
    P 689.6278, -995.3583, -18.1891, 0, 0, 240, 3, crystal
    P 650.0000, -1090.0000, 0.0000, 0, 0, 240, 2, crystal

    /loc +955.81, -719.76, -38.97

    Create the explosives and strategically place them in the Eastern Wing 0/1 (Ashengate, Reliquary of the Scale)

    Combine the Ashen Powder, Magma Infused Crystal, and the Worker's Pouch in Zhubis' Collectors Satchel to create a Satchel of High-Powered Explosives. The strategic locations seem to be the same as the locs for the ground-spawn. Run over one of these locs and the satchel will automatically drop and explode:

    Detonation: PB AE 80', Fire (-350)
    1: Decrease Hitpoints by 4500

    The Reliquary shakes violently as the blast charges fire off in rapid succession! Yet, when the dust settles, the temple defies all odds and remains intact.

    Your faction standing with Infiltraitors and Traitors of Ashengate got better!
    You gain experience!!

    This leads into the second task in the series.

    The locations in the quest write up are map locations which you put into the zone map file to see in game on your map. They X and Y coordinates are backwards from the /loc command.

    If you're hunting in the East side of Ashengate, then these 3 quests are well worth doing and can be mopped up as you progress, since components are easy to get.

    All components for quest 1 drop in East side, you need to go beyond the first cavern before you reach the powder drops.

    The crystals are just off the track to the left when you're facing up to the castle. Do the combine where you pick up the crystal and quest will complete.

    The crystals can be found on the left side of the road as you are nearing the castle, they are very small brown spots in the gulley.

    I did this today, 16Apr2008 having prelooted all the parts. When I got the quest, the crystal preloot worked but the ash and the satchel did not so I had to get those 2 parts to drop again. Even tho it says "collect" prelooting those parts did not work for me.

    The last part of the task is:


    After combining you get the "satchel of High-powered explosives"

    Aparently the place to go is where the ground spawns can be found.

    Worker's Pouch drops off the Drakkin in the east wing. (not rare)

    Ashen Powder drops off drakes in the east wing. (not rare)

    Magma Infused Crystal:
    P 650.0000, -1090.0000, 0.0000, 0, 255, 255, 2, Magma_Infused_Crystal

    There are at least 3 ground spawns close nearby. They respawn within minutes.

    Combining the 3 items creates in your inventory: Satchel of High-Powered Explosives

    Now IF you happen to run across a "strategic location", this satchel will automatically drop, creating a 4500 AE explosion.

    One such location is where you find the ground spawns or a short way south of it.

    Way off there is no direct reward for this mission. completeing the Line gets you an aug with a bunch of mod2's on it. The wand is a task item used in another line and also gained through another line.

    So what's the reward then?

    All 3 items are in eastwing of Ashengate
    Step 4 of taks is - combine the three items in the satchel
    Step 5 is - let the result explode at a stragetic position in eastwing

    worker's pouch - drops of several mobs in eastwing from zonein till first big chamber - can be obtained camping at zonein
    ashen powder - drops from drakes from big chamber till temple
    magma infused chrystal - groundspawn infront of temple - at least 4 groundspawns and they respawn faster than mobs respawn

    strategic position - where you obtain the ground spawns
