Once you have completed the 'Names of the Sphinx' task, you can request the next task in the series.

You say, 'Hail, Noble Sivrn'

Noble Sivrn says 'Well done! Most mortals would not have been able to discern the names of the sphinx so easily. Unfortunately your [pronunciation] is terrible. I hope that your slurred speech is not the result of an injury inflicted by one of my brethren.'

You say, 'My pronunciation..?'

Noble Sivrn nods, 'Do not be discouraged, I can [teach] you the proper intonation and pronunciation so that you will be heard when speaking to the sphinx.

You say, 'Teach me'

Noble Sivrn looks towards the barren portion of the desert and frowns, 'I will provide you with scroll and quill, but I'm afraid that I have exhausted my supply of ink. Would you mind retrieving a scorpion stinger for me, from which I can extract ink to use in your instruction?'

You have been assigned the task 'Atiiki Tongue Twisting'.

Correctly pronounce the names of the sphinx by breaking the names in syllables, separated by the ` character. Correctly guess and repeat the names back to Noble Sivrn with the correct accent marks between each syllable.

Deliver 1 Scorpion Stinger to Noble Sivrn

Stingers are dropped by scorpions in the desert by the sand pit. Give one of these to Noble Sivrn.

Noble Sivrn says, 'As you scribe the name of each sphinx you must properly place ` between each syllable. When you feel that have the ` placed properly, you may repeat back to me what you have written, and I will let you know if you are correct. For example, you would repeat my name back to me as: No`ble Si`vrn'

Correctly pronounce: Akarahotuten (6 syllables)
Correctly pronounce: Xanxionusus (5 syllables)
Correctly pronounce: Tekelfotonan (5 syllables)
Correctly pronounce: Mahatototarit (6 syllables)
Correctly pronounce: Shelfezmaken (4 syllables)
Correctly pronounce: Vizhizshazid (4 syllables)
Correctly pronounce: Rohtrepoten (4 syllables)
Correctly pronounce: Yinihortinkah (5 syllables)
Correctly pronounce: Dezthazkekol (5 syllables)
Correctly pronounce: Kikinkoutepmozha (7 syllables)
Correctly pronounce: Queltizenzumotif (6 syllables)
Correctly pronounce: Osinzuhazhfet (5 syllables)

You say, 'A`ka`ra`ho`tu`ten'

Noble Sivrn nods in approval.

You say, 'Xan`xi`on`us`us'

Noble Sivrn nods in approval

You say, 'Te`kel`fo`to`nan'

Noble Sivrn nods in approval.

You say, 'Ma`ha`to`to`ta`rit'

Noble Sivrn nods in approval.

You say, 'Shel`fez`mak`en'

Noble Sivrn nods in approval.

You say, 'Viz`hiz`sha`zid'

Noble Sivrn nods in approval.

You say, 'Roh`tre`po`ten'

Noble Sivrn nods in approval.

You say, 'Yin`i`hor`tin`kah'

Noble Sivrn nods in approval.

You say, 'Dez`thaz`ke`kol'
(Note! This is actually four syllables.)

Noble Sivrn nods in approval.

You say, 'Ki`kin`ko`u`tep`mo`zha'

Noble Sivrn nods in approval.

You say, 'Quel`ti`zen`zu`mo`tif'

Noble Sivrn nods in approval.

You say, 'O`sin`zu`hazh`fet'

Noble Sivrn nods in approval.

Noble Sivrn says 'You have done well to learn correct pronunciation of the sphinx names, I am sure that you would be honored to speak with them. Or, perhaps, to [play] a game with them?'

You gain experience!!

Reward(s):
Experience (116% AAXP at level 75)

This also opens the 'Order Squared' task.

After an hour and a half clearing all the bugs, I can confidently say the scorpions and PH's are on a 20-minute cycle. No drops yet. Starting to feel like some old-school EQ here.

The easiest way to do this is go to EQ options and set a paste hotkey in EQ, then u can copy and paste the text from this page directly into the chat window.
XP and a trick

I got 2 AA (at level 85 with 80% into AA) for each of these tasks. Wish they were repeatable!

If your keyboard gives you trouble, use keyboard short cut in EQ to paste the names as listed here. Go to your options in EQ, click keyboard, show all and choose a key combo for 'paste' into EQ. If I didn't have paste here, EQ would be a lot harder because of my LD.

If you are already past level 75 when you do this quest, do you still get the 116% experience for the level you are at? Thanks most kindly.

I had been running into a problem where I could not type apostrophes or quotation marks of any sort in EQ. This would have made this quest impossible for me. However, I realized it was because my computer was set for "International English" (which gave me the ability to type accents over letters, etc. which I need in RL). After choosing a plain English (USA) keyboard set, I was fine.

Cheers,

BV

Also, the key you want isn't the apostrophe. The in-game symbol that looks like an apostrophe is actually the accent sign, next to the tilde. The key is to the left of your number 1 and above the tab key on your keyboard.
Fixed.

SOE modified the task. Instead of the ` mark you can also use the space bar. The new task text of Noble Sivrn now says (bold text is the added part):

'As you scribe the name of each sphinx you must properly place ` between each syllable. When you feel that have the ` placed properly, you may repeat back to me what you have written, and I will let you know if you are correct. For example, you would repeat my name back to me as: No`ble Si`vrn, you may also pause between each syllable instead of using the `mark, doing it in that way, my name would be repeated as: No ble Si vrn.'

I also live outside the colonies, and my keyboard lacks the required character when I am in-game. I found that by just copying the phrases here (Ctrl+C), Alt+Tabing back to EQ and typing "/say Ctrl+K", the phrase, inclusing the unidentifiable characters, appears as text.

Good tip, thanks.

Options -> Keys -> UI category -> "Paste from Clipboard" (near the bottom of the list). Assign a keypress if one's not set, such as Ctrl+K.

I seem to be having some problems with pronouncing part. I have a Belgian keyboard and I've pressed almost every key (also in combination with shift and Alt Gr) but I can't find the symbol needed to put between syllable.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Solved this!

I had to switch every country/language/keyboard setting to English (US) in windows and reboot.

The correct key is on the top left key (without shift).

Hope this helps others too!

I have the same problem and absolute no solution!

I have a German keyboard and play on Fennin Ro (US server) with an English EQ.

I have the keys on my keyboard - but EQ will not let me use them!

SONY - why choose such a key - a dot yould have been of the same use - and everybody could make the quest!! :-(

Most desert trash PH's for large scorpions....the rhino beetles, the derv's, the scarabs..There's a trio of spawns north of the Crag pit that seemed to spawn the most large scorpions
