|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This group mission is the first in a series of five. It begins with Macon Teach (click for map image), who is located at about 200, 3085 on the northeastern coast of Jardel's Hook in the Buried Sea.
Pre-requisites for requesting:
You say, 'Hail, Macon Teach'
Macon Teach says 'Yar! Ye look the durable sort. Fancy yerself a frightful scallywag too? Well, I can give ye a challenge and pay ye for the [work].'
You say, 'What work?'
Macon Teach says 'Well, it be the kind of work for a true pirate, but you'll have to do. There be a man that's as true a pirate as ever lived. He be called Sharpeye. He's holed up on Blacksail Folly with a good number of dangerous Blacksail mates. I'm also certain that he be hidin' treasure from Jardel, as any true pirate would. Me, I'm thinkin' that someone like ye can go there and look about for all sorts of things and nobody would come askin' ol' Macon about it. So if'n ye head over to the Folly and see if there be any truth about Sharpeye havin' treasure buried about the island, I'll pay ye well to bring me evidence to prove that rumor. Be ye willin' to [search] the Folly for some things I be needin'?'
You say, 'I will search it'
Macon Teach says 'Ha! Right on the money! I had ye figured fer a greedy dog. Take the ship to the island and see what ye can find.'
You have been assigned the task 'Buried Treasure'.
Macon Teach has asked you to search the pirate stronghold of Blacksail Folly for a valuable sapphire. You may need to search several locations in the stronghold to find where they're keeping the treasure they have found. Be careful though, pirates aren't known for fighting fair.
You may need to gain a Palisade key to gain entrance to the stronghold.
Purchase tickets to Blacksail Folly and catch the boat 0/1 (The Buried Sea)
Buy a "Seafarer's Ticket: Blacksail Folly" from Dockmaster Angus at the dock (on the dock a little ways south) and keep it in your inventory. When the ship docks, step onto it and wait for it to sail out to the Buried Sea. Upon zoning, you'll find yourself in an instanced version of the island. (Next to you is a rowboat that serves as your zone-out.)
Dockmaster Angus says 'You look like you've been at sea on a dangerous mission for a while? Perhaps you plan to head back out, in which case you're going to need to purchase another ticket before boarding the Isabeau.'
LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...
You have entered Blacksail Folly.
Kill Fruitless Finn Straw and search his hut 0/1 (Blacksail Folly)
Kill Ferdinand Jellybones and search his hut 0/1 (Blacksail Folly)
Kill Bob Bloodbucket and search his guard tower 0/1 (Blacksail Folly)
Kill Jean Jailbird and search her guard tower 0/1 (Blacksail Folly)
Kill Musket Ball Wallace and search his hut 0/1 (Blacksail Folly)
Kill Saggin` Jowls Bailey and search his hut 0/1 (Blacksail Folly)
NOTE: Unlike other Buried Sea instances, mobs found in this zone have a respawn timer of 30 minutes.
First, you'll need to kill the mobs outside the front gate to obtain a key to the pirate stronghold: John the Infected or Snifflin` Beatrice Straw will drop the "Palisade Key". These two mobs hit for a max ~1,400.
Once inside the first gate, you'll need to obtain an "Inner Palisade Key". This is known to be dropped by Blind Macon Slasher, Wade the Staggering Drunk, Edmund the Malformed, Fruitless Finn Straw, and Lazy Eye Sully, so seek out these pirates.
Note that a see-invis mob stands right inside the inner area. Once in there, slay the pirates mentioned, and explore their huts. Note that some pirates see invisibility, so be mindful as you wander around. After completing these steps you see this emote:
Ye lice-ridden, scurvy dogs! Ye'll never get yer lazy hands on our treasure! Come try yer luck if yer ready ta die!
Slay Captain Stinkfoot 0/1 (Blacksail Folly)
Loot the gemstone from Captain Stinkfoot's corpse 0/1 (Blacksail Folly)
The Captain appears within the first half of the Blacksail fort, in the northeastern camp. He hits for a max ~2,800; summons when damaged; single-target rampages; is immune to root/snare, mez, and stun; and has ~160,000 hitpoints. Mobs here can be pacified.
Captain Stinkfoot has been slain by _____!
Captain Stinkfoot's corpse groans in pain and dies.
Your faction standing with Sharpeye's Reef Runners has been adjusted by -1.
Your faction standing with Blacksail Pirates has been adjusted by 1.
He drops a "Radiant Gemstone".
Return the gemstone to Macon 0/1 (The Buried Sea)
Macon Teach says 'Ah ye found it! This does appear to be the gemstone o the rumors. It. . . uh will take a bit longer ta truly verify this is the correct one though. Perhaps if you came back tomorrow I'll have more to tell you about it. . . Ye may be able to [search] for other things.'
The gem you found appears to be the one Macon was interested in. Unfortunately he doesn't appear to be forthcoming on a share of its worth or more information about it. Perhaps he isn't so different from the pirates after all. If you still trust him at all he may have more things that you can [search] for.
- Faction with Blacksail Smugglers (+25)
