This quest begins with an undead knight at location 440, 80, 30.

You say, 'Hail, an undead knight'

an undead knight says 'Leave this place or find yourself [bound to this land] as I am.'

You say, 'Bound to this land?'

an undead knight says 'I was torn to pieces for failure to complete a task for my master. I lost my life, my precious [shadowknight armor] and most of all, my [lower body]!!'

You say, 'What lower body?'

an undead knight says 'My lower body was taken from me, along with my hands. I was pieced together using portions of other failed champions. Now I can only [create darkforge armor] in the form of helms, breastplates, vambraces and bracers.'

You say, 'Shadowknight armor?'

an undead knight says 'My darkforge armor!! It was taken into the land of lizards by the lizardmen crusaders!! It is worthless decayed armor now!! I cannot even wear it any more, but perhaps you can!! Would you like me to [make you darkforge armor]?'

You say, 'Make me darkforge armor.'

an undead knight says 'Darkforge helms require my decayed helm and visor as well as two Freeport militia helms. The breastplate requires the decayed breastplate, decayed mail and two enchanted platinum bars. Vambraces need both decayed vambraces and a Qeynos Guard kite shield. The bracers require both decayed bracers and a broken horn from a minotaur lord.'




You need a Decayed Helm and Decayed Visor (both from various Tae Ew mobs in the Feerrott) and Damaged Militia Helms (from guards in and around Freeport).

Upon turn in:

An undead knight say, 'Two damaged Freeport Militia helms, the decayed helm and the ddcayed visor.'

An undead knight say, 'You now own the darkforge helm.'

Decayed Pieces

As of 5/18/2018 all of the Decayed pieces do indeed drop off either off the Spiritualist or the Crusader.

I just got my last piece the Breastplate, Thank God!!! Off a Crusader. Chainmail and Helm was off the Spiritualist.

So confirmed the Spiritualist spawns at the obelisk, Radiant and Observer are the PHs. I had a Crusader spawn multiple times to the right of him.

The ramp leading to Cazic-Thule also spawns Crusaders and for me it was always on the right side facing the ramp below and above.

Both Right and Left Temples to the ramp spawn Crusaders. Sometimes at the top, sometimes the bottom.

Some post mentioned the Northern Temples do not spawn but that is not correct. The north Temple on your right facing the ramp had a spawn just not very often. Still worth clearing.

I never had luck on the Left North or Center North temples. Also no luck at the bridge leading over the river where there's four static PHs.

What makes this such a pain in the butt is you might not see one single spawn in three or four clearings of all these areas. Then when they do spawn they don't drop your last pieces.

I got all the pieces fairly early except for the Helm, Chainmail and then the Breastpiece. Got those in that order and Thank God it's over!!!! Spent a week on and off farming these, maybe total time 10 hours?

I have been camping ferrot for about 3 days straight and a few off and on. I have yet to see/find a single part of this quest, so if your trying to do this the old way. Clear your schedule because your gonna be here a while.

-Update-
Camp the spiritualist area i got the helm piece today off a crusader next to him so i guess that area is better chances.

Does it actually make a difference? I have personally gone through all the quest dialogue crap thinking maybe it was a hidden trigger. Still camping for hours on end with no end in sight. Cleared entire island with the exception of the a scout from zanivar type mobs at least 6 times. Literally no end in sight. Yes doing it for epic. lol

EDIT: I see. There is a faster way of doing it where you can skip some parts of it including this darkforge armor part. So you asked for no reason really. Should have just mentioned it in the first place. Check the innoruuk's curse walkthrough at evilgamer.net. http://www.evilgamer.net/forums/showthread.php?t=50
EDIT: FInally got the decayed stuff i needed for the darkforge stuff. Spent roughly 4 hours today camping the north corner of the island that cazic-thule entrence is on. Only killed those 4 mobs over and over again while i did things on other accounts. Was really boring. I got some of the other decayed stuff after server resets and zone crashes since my original post date so it wasn't just those 2 camp sessions.

Crusader or Spritualists?

I play on the Combine progressive server and with the new freeport the only place I found to find guards that weren't Red at 48 was right inside east freeport from North Ro. There are 2 guards there one was blue to me at 48 (Guard Zeph), but he still put up a good fight. The other was green to me and not as tough. They didn't drop the helm everytime though. I hope this helps someone, i had a tough time finding a guard I could kill that dropped the Helms

I've bumped into a guard that drops it while working on the Arena Charm task. It drops from a light blue to lvl 70 gaurd that walks by the arena. The other guards in the area are on Pally faction not malitia faction, and do not assist. I've killed him twice while buffing in front of the Arena, and he dropped the helm both times.

I'm a 62/62 OGRE SK. an undead knight cons indifferently to me. He's green to me. He's at location 434.83, 85.01, 33.50. Dialogue to follow:
You say, 'Hail, an undead knight '
an undead knight says 'Leave this place or find yourself [bound to this land] as I am.'
You say, 'I find myself bound to this land.'
an undead knight says 'I was torn to pieces for failure to complete a task for my master. I lost my life, my precious [shadowknight armor] and most of all, my [lower body]!!'
You say , 'what shadowknight armor'
an undead knight says 'My darkforge armor!! It was taken into the land of lizards by the lizardman crusaders!! It is worthless decayed armor now!! I cannot even wear it any more, but perhaps you can!! Would you like me to [make you darkforge armor]?
You say, 'I would like you to make me darkforge armor'
an undead knight says 'Darkforge helms require my decayed helm and visor as well as two Freeport militia helms. The breastplate requires the decayed breastplate, decayed mail and two enchanted platinum bars. Vambraces need both decayed vambraces and a Qeynos Guard kite shield. The bracers require both decayed bracers and a broken horn from a minotaur lord.

There is another undead knight just on the other side of Solomen. This undead knight also cons indifferently to me and he's green, location 408.69, 86.27, 33.50. Dialogue to follow:
You say, 'Hail, an undead knight'

You say, 'What gruesome fate?'
an undead knight says 'I was once a proud shadowknight, but failed I did in my master's quest. I was sent into a lizard fortress deep in the swamplands. I was to seek out an ancient item for my master. I failed and was captured. The lizards stripped me of my [darkforge armor] and planned to boil me alive. Before they could do so, I escaped. Upon my return to my master's lair I found myself in a [worse predicament].'
You say, 'what darkforge armor'
an undead knight says 'I and I alone have the power to create darkforge armor!! It was crafted for me so naturally it is to be worn by shadowknights only. My armor was taken by the lizardman crusaders. Unfortunately for them, it lost all power and cannot be worn. I would be glad to see it put to good use. Do you [seek the darkforge armor]?'
You say, 'I seek the darkforge armor'
an undead knight says 'Darkforge gauntlets require both of my decayed gauntlets and one enchanted platinum bar. For the darkforge greaves, I will need both decayed legplates and two pieces of melatite from the Solusek Mining Complany. For the boots, I need both my decayed boots and two parts of fairy dust.'
At this point, hand in the required pieces to receive the darkforge armor.

Tried to Turn in Damaged Militia Helm for MQ to get the DF helmet and I got the message from undead Knight that said, "I have no need of this, you can have it back."

Guess I have to FARM the item the OLD fashion way-- UGH.

Just started camping Feerot today (leftmost temple when facing CT) as a 39 Rng since easily soloable with Harmony for pulling. Anyway, first pull was the Crusader (tough little ****** though) and he dropped the helm and a side to the vambraces.
My only question is if there is a faction issue on the turn in, or is the MOB only apprehensive to all?

I got my DF helm this morning. Camped the Spritualist in Feerott for the decayed helm and visor...he also drops all other decayed pieces you need. He spawns at the point...basically cross the small bridge like you're going to the CT temple, but make a right after you cross the bridge and follow the shoreline. He has 3 other spawns around him, but are easy to take out if you're 33+lvl. His place holder is the Radiant and Silver Tau Observer.

Camped Guard Duriek in East Freeport. He's lvl 32-33..no other guards around. Enter East Freeport through the North Ro entrance...go straight past the guards...make a left, and follow the right wall..you'll see Guard Duriek. Dropped the Damaged Militia Helm both times I killed him.

Hey this is an FYI, I did this quest last night at level 32 sk with 75% xp(get the UI skin that tells you it's worth it), after I turned the items in I had 83% xp. This is very nice since killing a blue in Sol A is 1%xp.
I will post about the helm under the item itself on how to do it.

It's the usual "bring this list of stuff to me and I'll give you this" quest. AFAIK, no blacksmithing skills involved. That would make it waaay too tough.

Aye, the Damaged Helms Work Just Dandy. Easy targets are Guard Orpheen and his partner, whos name eludes me. Go into East freeport thru NRO gate, past first set of guards, then second set (lvl 60's, be invis if KOS) turn left, then right. go through arch and Orpheen and his partner guard the backside of the arch. Conned dark blue to me (37 SK). Nice pull spot around the corner to the left from the arch. Did need a heal from a Druid friend. Oh, warn your healer, if they cast on you during the combat, they WILL take a faction hit with the freeport guards.

I just started a Shadow Gnight a lil after the patch on the 19th, and was wondering if the change in Cazic Thule nerfed these quest? or if they have simple been changed.

Quest still works. The mobs are now outside the temple on the pyramids near the entrance to Cazic Thule. High 20's is about the earliest you should have a real expectation of getting into a group for these.

I made up a little guide for questing Darkforge armor and all the pieces you need and a lot of information on the mobs to fight to get it all. Heck I even threw in the stats of all the pieces. Sounds like I've got a little too much time on my hands... =)

Anyways, it was written by a DE SK so I'm not sure if it would differ much between races, but feel free to take a look at it anyways...

Oh jeez I just realized I should have used some kind of text wrapping formatting... oh well, save it to your desktop and open it in wordpad or something =P
