    This task begins with Captain Hiran Tillin in the Oceangreen Hills. Before speaking with him, you must have completed the two tasks from Sergeant Bronal Cadran.

    You say, 'Hail, Captain Hiran Tillin'

    Captain Hiran Tillin grins at you mirthlessly. 'If Bronal sent you, he must have found that you could be of some use. You should be proud! Not many are able to meet his stringent expectations. I hear also that you have been of some assistance to our civilian friends Tabron and Garvin. While your goodwill is appreciated, there is a great deal more [work] to be done. Satisfy me and you may yet earn an [audience] with the man himself.'

    You say, 'Work?'

    You have been assigned the task 'Familiarity is Key'.

    Captain Hiran Tillin says 'Perhaps you should get your bearings before we get started. Take a look around Oceangreen Village and familiarize yourself with the formation of our defenses. It may come in handy in case of an attack.'

    Find the place Tillin calls "The Ruin" 0/1 (Oceangreen Village)

    Speak with Captain hiran Tillan 0/1 (Oceangreen Hills)

    You say, 'Hail, Captain Hiran Tillin'

    Hopefully you will be able to remember the locations as he labeled them. It might be embarrassing to have to ask him where these places are later.

    And I'd go ahead and change all the map file's permissions in case you ever need to add something in-game via the map window.

    I tried your directions exactly and still wouldn't let me save. I was logged completely out of eq and everything. I am running vista so I don't know if that is why I can't save. I get an access to that file is denied message every time I try and save it.

    Don't be in zone at the time (and even better if you're completely out of game).

    Highlight (with the mouse) and Copy the text in the previous post, only the lines that start with P.

    Start - Run - enter Write - click OK button.

    In Wordpad, File - Open - browse to the your Everquest\maps directory (proabably C:\program files\soe\everquest\maps) - select Text Documents (*.txt) in the Files of type drop-down menu - select the file oceangreenhills_3.txt - click the Open button.

    Paste the text (Ctrl+V or Edit - Paste)
    File - Save
    File - Exit

    Now start up EQ, and the labels will be there. You need to have Layer 3 visible and Hieght Filter off in the EQ Map Window.

    Yther Ore.

    Late Reply but...

    This is still required for Void Progress. It is for the Ocean Green theme.

    Many make the mistake of assuming this is for Void B, when in fact you will advance the Void access with every theme you do. So if you do Tosk Warrens first you will be Void B after its complete. If you do Oceangreen after that you will be Void C etc etc.

    Bottom line is you need this task to complete the Oceangreen theme and advance to the next void level.

    Side Note: If you only do earth Theme (ie Tosk Warrens) you will be Void B but will have access to T5 Mercs

    I'm making my way through the Oceangreen progression on two different toons. First toon was with a power group; someone else got the tasks (who completed the pre reqs) I completed just the required tasks with the group and was able to make it through to Void B. Here are the quests we did:

    - Familiarity is Key
    - Stop the Contamination
    - Dread Challenger
    - Beat the Blackburrow Boss

    Second toon started with a group that hadn't done any of the quests or tasks. We had to do Man the Defenses and No Cure for Death with SGT Bronal Cadran prior to getting the required tasks Familiarity is Key, Stop the Contamination and Dread Challenger from Captain Hiran.

    Very similar process for the other Blackburrow tasks. We did three quests Summary Execution, Invading the Invaders, and Send the Message and were able to get Freedom. We completed Freedom and were able to get Beat the Blackburrow Boss.

    I can confirm that this quest is a requirement for Void B access. Did the listed quests for access and was upset when I could not get in. Did this quest and I was able to zone into Void B. Please update the Void B requirements.

    This quest appears to be non-repeatable, as I completed it during the preview and it does not appear as an option now (even though I repeated the required pre-quests). Those trying to complete the "Crest" quest, who did these quests during the preview, are apparently going to have to wait however long it takes SoE to get the touted "quest-piece-NPC" into the game in order to get their rewards to attempt the combines.
