In the north central part of Kithicor Forest, find Gandari (location +1468, +2419).

You say, 'Hail, Gandari'

Gandari says 'Most call me Gandari the Terse. You here for [ivy armor]?'

You say, 'What ivy armor?'

Gandari says 'I reward brave rangers with ivy etched armor - [helm]s, [tunic]s, [sleeves] and [bracers]. [Interested]?'

You say, 'I am interested in a helm.'

Gandari says 'I do not haggle; I do not bargain. The top of the Rune of Ivy from Castle Mistmoore, a cyclops charm from Tarskuk and a sapphire of sky blue. Bring these to me and you shall earn your reward.'

Head to Rathe Mountains. The monster that you need is Tarskuk, a named cyclops. Near the zone line to Lake Rathetear is a large open area set with a wide hill, atop which are two stone arms and hands that reach toward the sky (location +3270, +1640). On and around this hill, are the placeholders of Tarskuk: giant skeletons, cyclopses, lizardman warriors, and lizardman mystics. Kill them until Tarskuk spawns.

Kill Tarskuk and loot the "Cyclops Charm". There are no faction hits for killing Tarskuk.

Travel to Faydwer and zone into Castle Mistmoore. Hunt the interior of the castle proper for "a deathly usher". There are several that will be up at any given time.

Kill deathly ushers until you loot the "Rune of Ivy". This item identifies as "Rune of Ivy (top)".

Travel to any city and find a gem merchant. Purchase one Sapphire.

Head back to Kithicor Forest and return to Gandari. Give her the sapphire, the Rune of Ivy, and the Cyclops Charm.

Gandari says 'Wait, _____, are you not forgetting something?'
Gandari says 'Wait, _____, are you not forgetting something?'
Gandari says 'Well done. May Karana bless your soul.'

Your faction standing with Kithicor Residents got better.
Your faction standing with Protectors of Pine got better.
Your faction standing with Jaggedpine Treefolk got better.
Your faction standing with Unkempt Druids got worse.
You gain experience!!

You receive an Ivy Etched Helm.

A guildmate recently looted the charm after asking /gu Who is Tarskuk?
I was continents away so he looted it and now I'm wondering... Can we multiquest this item? I can't find anywhere that says Ivy Etched can or cannot be multiquested. Anyone know?

Yes. Any piece of Ivy can be MQ'd. I MQ'd my gauntlets and my tunic, and this should be no different.
Tarskuk
# Apr 06 2002 at 10:17 AM Rating: Good
Okay, Tarskuk pops near the Lake Rathe zone in Rathe Mountains. He can be a PAIN to make pop so be prepared for a long camp. If he isn't on track when you zone in from Lake Rathe, start slaughtering all the cyclops that you see up. This is supposed to get him to spawn earlier....

Broon and Proon in East Karana also drop a cyclops charm. I did this quest using the one off of them and it didn't work. (Hope that saves someone some time).

The Deathly Ushers drop the rune of ivy an average of 1 out of 6 or 7 times. However, the Deathly Ushers INSIDE drop it more often than the ones that you can find outside.

My character is currently logged at zone in Kithicore, when I get off work I plan on getting myself a pretty green helm.

I got the required rune from the first DU I killed. Unfortunately, the group I was with pulled all those nasty casters and I bit the dust. Oh well, still had my rune.

I got the cyc charm from Tarskuk the second time I killed him. The first time I killed him, I had absolutely no knowledge of this quest and let a pally in the group loot the charm. Doh! After many dead cyclopses, Tarskuk popped again and one again dropped the needed charm.

A hop, skip and a jump over to Kelethin for the gem and I was finished. Now all I have to do is collect my helm.

I know Thisle Underbrush in LFay and griffons in NK drops a no drop rune of ivy... I assume that rune is different from the rune needed here? Thanks for any info.

If you have multiple Runes of Ivy and forgot which one is for which quest, have a caster throw Identify on you while you are holding the rune in question. By holding it I mean actually clicking on the item so that it stays on your cursor, and then watch your text messages, for that is where you will see a message pop up telling you what is on your cursor when the Identify is cast...

Just a lil FYI.
MM rune and charm
# Aug 06 2001 at 12:02 AM Rating: Default
I got the rune from following a high level group into teh kitchen, adn within 20 minutes they had destroyed about 5 runes and 7 MM granite's. The charm was the hard part for me Took me a week of camping to finally get it from teh cyclops in Rathe mtn's. so if your after the rune from the deathly usher's. follow someone into the castle i have seen so many drop in there its not funny.
Cylclops Charm

I just got a rune of Solusek Ro from Tarskuk. Is this the same as the Cyclops Charm??

No - the Cyclops Charm is just that, a RNG only wearable (but NO DROP and LORE) necklace. I would guess a Rune of Sol Ro is just a research component. BTW, in my experience, Tarskuk dropped the charm 4 out of 5 times. So it sounds like you were a bit unlucky - 1 more kill ought to do it though. Good luck.

rune is kinda tough
# Jul 01 2001 at 3:57 PM Rating: Default
I had some of my guildies help me out, and we camped the jail, as well as some other roomsa round. Killed many ushers as well as other MM denizen and no rune. Spent about 8 hrs or more there, but no rune.
We did however make some nice cash. just about anything in the zone has a chance to drop multiple plat.
Beware the jail when you first enter. There are some tough casters there waiting for you. Best bet, have the toughest go in first kill the casters , and then go in. I'm lv 33, and within a few spells i was toast.
Good luck

This quest info is true. People can get this early due to the fact that they can buy it from other players for about 2k for an entire set. I have seen people at lvl 6 with an entire set. :-P

dude, calm down, don't act so superior. you're the dumbass who thinks BI crown is better, but it's got **** for ac compared to this. you're a stats junkie
#Anonymous, Posted: May 28 2001 at 2:27 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) you have got to be one of the most ignorant ppl i have ever seen type in my life. YOU do not sound very intellegent when swearing all through the message. so here goes ( you could have peiced it together from all of the other messages you retard) you give it to the chick in the hut to the RIGHT of the trainer in kith, you then have to give her the rune, the cyclops charm and the saphire and she will give you the helmet, which in my opinion is not that great in the first place. if your really that full of **** and vinegar why dont you try and take your dead **** down to the bottom of runny eye and camp the king or the warlord and get the blackend iron crown that he drops. its way better. better stats and +5 SV all across the board along with +5 str sta and agi (i think on the agi not sure though). so another words b4 you say somthing stupid why dont you think.

After giving my stuff to Leaf (and losing it) I looked around and found the right person to give it to. In one of the houses by leaf there is a girl named Gandari who offers the helm, tunic, sleeves and bracer.

What NPC gives out this quest?
Courtesy IDIOT
# Dec 06 2000 at 5:59 PM Rating: Decent
I agree with the post asking what the courtesy post had to do with Ivy Etched??? The anon person that posted this on virtually EVERY board should have his head shoved where the sun don't shine. I know many people that are sick and tired of seeing his idiotic post all over the place.

Now for something PERTINENT to this forum: Does anyone know how rare this drop is? I am in MM now and have not seen one as of yet. I know people that have killed many DU's without a rune as well.

Also, I know at least 2 spawn under the crypt. Does anyone know where else?

Last question... I would be willing to pay to loot this item. Any suggestion on price to loot this item?

In case the courtesy idiot wants to claim his "work", here is my info...

# Mar 26 2001 at 2:10 PM Rating: Default
I got the rune by accident. I was following a paladin to the GY and a deathly usher and deathly usurper nailed the druid following me. We all ran, but did not zone. The druid died. The deathly usher aggroed on the paladin and we killed it. It dropped the rune.

My guild did a raid on MM saturday the deathly ushers are a fairly common spawn (all thru the castle to include grave yard). My group probably killed 6 ourselves. The rune doesnt drop all the time although I did see at least 3 in a three hour time period. Got mine woohoo. Time for Kithicor.

I think I can speak for everyone on this topic. Please people when you know that someone has been camping for a long time, don't pester them about when they are going to leave. Don't sit down next to them to "wait" until they are done. You might be waiting a long time and then the time it takes for you to complete your camp on top of that. The NPC will always respawn and will always be there. Just ask them kindly if they will send you a tell when they are done and 9 times out of 10 they will. These players are tired from camping that long of a period and quite understandably a little grouchy and become extremely nervous at the thought of someone possibly stealing their kill. So, be courteous.
#Anonymous, Posted: Nov 21 2000 at 10:40 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I would just like to know what the **** that has to do with the Ivy Etched Helm quest? Are you an Idiot? Dont complain on these message boards, give us some **** information about the quest!!! YOUSUCK!! HAHA
I found the charm on Broon
# Sep 18 2000 at 10:58 AM Rating: Default
I also found the cyclops charm on Broon in EK. I have not completed the quest with this charm, but I will see if this is the correct one, after I get the rune of Ivy.
RE: I found the charm on Broon
# Feb 26 2001 at 9:07 AM Rating: Default
I've soloed Broon for two straight levels, and have never found a charm. Thats not to say it's impossible, it could be an extremely rare drop. It's also possible it was dropping from Broon, and was "repaired" by Verant, as they don't seem to like our quests to be any easier on a level 20- 23.

The Ivy rune only seems to drop in the tower in MM, from the Deathly Ushers there. I joined my guild on a full scale raid, we fought our way up to the tower and worked it for several hours, we found a number of ivy runes within, as well as enough MM granite to make all the rangers, pallies, and clerics happy campers. But we did not find any runes outside of the tower.

I got it on broon :) unfortunatly I didn't know what to do with it :( it rotted... well off I'll go try agian I REALLY hope it still drops from him, have no idea where the other guy is that drops it
