This task begins with Apothecary Cadmael, a vendor in the middle of Oceangreen Village.

You say, 'Hail, Apothecary Cadmael'

Apothecary Cadmael says 'How do you do, ______? I seem to be running a bit low on [supplies] for healing at the moment, so if you have fallen ill or become injured, I'm afraid that I will have to urge you to seek out some other traveler with a degree of healing skill. My apologies!'

You say, 'Supplies?'

Apothecary Cadmael says 'We have recently experienced a rather nasty spate of illness in our fine village. People are falling ill, and we can't seem to figure out what is wrong with them! I've tried everything - lilyroot, ashenmoss, even fresh purple flangers - but nothing seems to help. The strong can weather the disease and return to health in time, but those who are young and vulnerable or old and infirm... they may not be so lucky. I'm fresh out of [ideas].'

You say, 'Ideas?'

Apothecary Cadmael says 'My only thought is that perhaps this has something to do with that [vile temple] outside of the village. Have you seen that place? It's disgusting and completely ridden with disease.'

You say, 'What vile temple?'

Apothecary Cadmael says 'I've heard from some of the others that the people in that underground temple are worshipping Bertoxxulous, the disease god! If that is the case, perhaps someone should [investigate] to find out if their disgusting plague worship is causing the illnesses in the village. Or, perhaps you are prepared to [storm] the temple and root out the corruption within?'

You say, 'I will investigate.'

You have been assigned the task 'A Secret Hidden in Plain Sight'.

Apothecary Cadmael says 'Thank you for offering to help us. Many lives may be in the balance here.'

Recover Proof of the Bertoxxulous worshippers' treachery 0/7 (Temple of Bertoxxulous)

Collect 7 different scraps in Temple of Bertoxxulous, which drop from the golems and humans in the zone. The scraps are:

Soiled Parchment Scrap
Defiled Parchment Scrap
Infected Parchment Scrap
Plagued Parchment Scrap
Contaminated Parchment Scrap
Corrupted Parchment Scrap
Malignant Parchment Scrap

Deliver the pages you found to Apothecary Cadmael 0/4 (Oceangreen Village)

Apothecary Cadmael says 'What have we here? Ah... I haven't seen this sort of document since I was studying to become a junior apothecary. If I am not mistaken, this is part of a summoning ritual, but the passage appears to be [encoded]. Whatever it may say, you will need to read it aloud at the appointed summoning location... these places are typically marked by insignias or runes on the ground, likely near a place of worship.'

Receive Reconstructed Cultist Manual.

Deliver the scraps you found to Apothecary Cadmael 0/3 (Oceangreen Village)

Apothecary Cadmael says 'Oh, yes, these do look like they fit together somehow, don't they? Let's see if perhaps they do... here, and here...Yes, this seems correct. No encoding here at all. Just the one word.'

Receive Completed Cultist Cipher.

Devise a way to activate the document's power in the correct location 0/1 (Temple of Bertoxxulous)

The Manual received can be one of three manuals. Which one you get is random.

1) "Ool tn avvbnm oeimph jcgu tcxwgf vvrle ribqu Hux buwb bh rvlegas fjoye ovmb gjs cttn nce vvr kezcfa qt gae Rwfq qt Cxszqzrpqr"

2) "Ys shur wie dcqbey ewgj hux brquuv kr poxavvr hux Doasnus Yhrj ewgj chk frmgu Czy aaot Prthbqxatchu hux Utkzrcb Bge"

3) "Dsemodfiyqif ulkagru if pizp qbtfhitowb Jg qnel axca vvr Wiymofg Zbkd zw grpr n aexizq qt qbvovs cgggblkvqr"

They translate to:

1) "May an unholy blight wash across these lands The boon of disease shall open the path for the return of the Lord of Pestilence"

2) "We foul our bodies with the blight we worship the Disease Lord with our flesh All hail Bertoxxulous the Unclean One"

3) "Bertoxxulous blesses us with corruption We call upon the Disease Lord to send a herald of divine pestilence"

Return to the Temple of Bertoxxulous and clear the area in front of the Altar. Once you've cleared enough, you stand on the picture of the skull on the floor and /say whichever message corresponds to your Manual. (NOTE: You should not have a target while doing this.) This will update this step in the task and spawn Vaxztn the Purifier.

Defeat the representative of Bertoxxulous 0/1 (Temple of Bertoxxulous)

Kill Vaxztn. The golem is rootable and does not summon.

Vaxztn the Putrifier has been slain by _____!
Vaxztn the Putrifier's corpse crumples to the ground in a heap of filth.

Arch Priest Cronkle laughs hoarsely. 'You think you have accomplished something significant? Think again! Return here, if you dare, and face the full power of Bertoxxulous!

Return to Cadmael 0/1 (Oceangreen Village)

You say, 'Hail, Apothecary Cadmael'

Apothecary Cadmael says, 'Apothecary Cadmael says, 'Goodness gracious! Those vile cretins were actually summoning entites from nether-realms of Bertoxxulous? Thank Marr you were able to stop them!''

Having banished Vaxztn the Putrifier back to Bertoxxulous' realm, Oceangreen Village's disease problem should soon abade.
Your faction standing with Bayle's Irregulars got better.
Your faction standing with Residents of the Glade got better.
Your faction standing with Oceangreen Residents got better.
Your faction standing with Cirtan, Bayle's Herald got better.

Been trying to finish this on my warrior alt, no problem collectin all 7 pages and getting them translated but when it comes to saying the phrase in front of the altar.... geez.
Started off by getting the 2nd phrase to say.
Dropped invis and lev, got rid of all mercenaries, cleared every mob in sight, stood on the skull in the circle in front of the altar, tried /say, tried making a hotkey, triple checked the spelling, added quotation marks and removed quotation marks AND dropped the task and got it again.
On 2nd try I got the 3rd phrase, same deal standing in front of the altar, no lev or mercs or invis or mobs around, no illusion on, tried both /say and hotkey, moved all around the skull and circle on the floor spamming the phrase and still nothing. I've typed the phrase exactly as it appears, capital letters and all.
Anyone know what I'm missing or should I just petition the darned thing? It's the last task needed to complete Bayle's Heraldic Crest on the warrior.

Hi,
The third translation in the line up above DOES NOT work I tried 3 or 4 times before deciding to try to get a different manual by restarting the quest.I had to restart the quest 4 times all together to get a different manual.I do know the second one works for sure because my real life bf had that one and he was able to get the named spawn first try this was as of January 13th 2014. Today the 14th I am going in to try and finish this quest along with my man finally getting to finish his he has been waiting for me to catch up with him .

(1) Set up a campfire at the quest giver and take the quest with all toons (was boxing 3 here).

(2) Go into the temple just rip your way to the altar, these guys were trivial to us (96s). Don't think any parchments dropped until we got to the alter room so that's one place to clear (others were mentioned but we didn't get any off the mobs along the way to the altar via the straight path).

[We only had to clear the altar room twice+ to get all loots. The (+) is for this: there seems to be a place to get the guardian to almost chain spawn and we used that after the second clear. That's where my 3rd toon got his last 2. No idea if one was rarer than another, they all quickly got to 5. #6 took a bit and the wait was for #7 but random chance would make that true so a claim to "rare one" is probably not true]

(3) Take your campfire token back to the quest giver and do the turnins, make sure you're on the step that says "Devise a way to ...." .

(4) Make socials to do the text! It doesn't always work the first try, you'll be p'd off if you type all that in and it doesn't work. Using Kynsh's phrasing, my social lines were:

/say May an unholy blight wash across these lands The boon of disease shall open the path for the return of the Lord of Pestilence
/say We foul our bodies with the blight we worship the Disease Lord with our flesh All hail Bertoxxulous the Unclean One
/say Bertoxxulous blesses us with corruption We call upon the Disease Lord to send a herald of divine pestilence

[caps probably don't matter but took no chances including single spaces between all words and no spaces at the end. For my 3 toons, I set up the first guy before going in and used the respawn time to do the other two]

(5) Head back to the altar, you may be able to get by the earlier mobs with invis but, being high level, it won't matter much for time. Go back and clear the altar room. When you've cleared the needed mobs, stand on the skull (circle area, center of room) and use your macro. Others warned "NO INVIS", "NO LEV". Named mob spawns, kill him and repeat. There may be a one minute timer or thereabouts, it surely took me more than one minute to set up the next social (since copy-n-paste isn't allowed).

Got it to work, no problem. Used the text from Kynsh's post from 11/2/08, but without the quotes. Had clicked off SoE, and was not invis. Had 3 mercs up in the group. Worked for all three toons on the quest, on the very first try, with one slight caveat that I hadn't seen mentioned in this thread. Once the quest has been done, the boss spawned and killed, the next player can't do the /say and spawn of the boss for some set time. Not sure exactly what it is, but it's at least one minute.

Other than that little speed bump, the info in this thread was spot on.

Completed with 76 mage with EM1 pet, 76 druid and 2 cleric mercs.

Mostly as per BPrefontaine commented. Didn't use quotes when saying the phrase, mercs were up, no lev or invis buffs. Cleared the golems at the base of the altar as well as the three static spawns over the skull on the floor and a few roamers who path up to the altar area. No nameds were up in the immediate vicinity.

Getting the scraps was not difficult, I collected 3 full sets in a few hours of killing mobs. You cannot pre-loot the scraps, make sure you get the quest from Apothecary Cadmael first before collecting.

Trouble spawning Vaxztn
# Jun 12 2011 at 7:09 AM Rating: Decent
OK, took me several attempts to duo this one with my boxed lvl 81 mage and wizzy. A few observations:

1- Best place to set up camp was indeed, following Kirbyramz advice, the right side at the back of the throne/altar room (north east).

2- Quickest way to set up that camp without encountering any see invivible mobs is to go through the connecting room and secret passages on the east side of the altar room, rather than fight your way through the altar room.

3- Once you set up camp in the northeast corner, it's possible to clear the altar by killing as few as 5 or 6 static mobs (you managed to pull singles, pairs or threesomes but had to evac when pulling 4 or more at once). After clearing altar and throne you get at least a 5 minute window to rest/buff/try summoning the named. Agro area of static mobs is small, but you still have to watch out for roamers.

4- Getting Vaxztn to spawn required many attempts. Here's what finally worked for me:
- create a hot key with the right message;
- include the double quotation marks " at both ends of the sentence and the capitalized letters;
- remove your invis and levitation buffs;
- suspend ALL the mercs in your group (even those not trying to spawn Vaxztn);
- hit the "escape" key so you have nothing targetted, then hit your hot key.

Good luck!

Did anyone else have trouble with the Corrupted parchment scrap? Going into this i figured there would be one that would be a pain to get, that i'd get a bunch of duplicates before getting the last one. But about 45 minutes after getting all but the corrupted i started counting the pages cause I was getting so many duplicates (killing with top gear 85 rogue and ranger, mobs going down in seconds). I got well over 100 duplicates before getting the corrupted page.

An interesting zone note though, several mobs see through Rogue Shroud of Stealth, very odd for a lower level non-raid zone.
On the plus side though, the mobs have low agro ranges and they all drop lots of random flawless trade skill items (animal pelts, silk etc)

I collected 3 sets, took a total of maybe 2 hours. For me, Soiled and Defiled were the last ones to get. I saw TONS of corrupted. I really just think it's random. Or it may depand on what mob type you pull, I don't know. I pulled from the room just north of the zone in (with all the golems), and then the room east of that (the Library?).

Good job, whoever first deciphered thes messages.

For thoe who want to Know, this is an example of "One-Time-Pad Cipher"
The "One-Time-Pad" is given in the "completed Cultist Cipher" as "CONTAGION"
---------------------------------------------------------------------
To encipher a clear-text mesage
Assign each letter a value: a=0, b=1 ... z=25
Add the value of the one-time-pad, in this case "contagion" to each letter.
If the result is greater than 25, subtract 26.
Turn that back into a letter.
Voila, ciphered mesage.

May an unholy blight wash across these lands ...

Me and my husband had no issue spawning this mob. We cleared out the golems at the alter, cleared the roamers that walk onto the skull image on the floor and cleared the mobs that spawn to the right of the skull if you are standing at the alter. Uninvis and without targeting a mob I said the words and he spawned. It did NOT work with the quotes in it. And having our mercs out had no effect whatsoever.

Just duo'd with War and Sham w/mercs (war & cleric). Set up social to say the 3 lines, no quotes and bam he spawned. What irritated me was I had to do it twice, once for each character which didn't make sense to me.

In order to spawn the boss, you must have no target. So, don't be invis and be sure to use the quotes. You should probably set up a social key to do something like

/say "......."

and make sure you have no target. Use the ESC key to clear your target.

Scrap Drops
# Dec 02 2008 at 3:26 PM Rating: Excellent
If you are working on part 4 of this quest, (the incantation part), then its easy for others to do part 1 because you will be clearing at least the front half of the throne room and a lot of scraps drop there.

For part four, invis and avoid SI mobs and make your way to the right back side of the throne, buff up and make your plan on crowd control. Split or pull the front two golems that stand on either side of the throne. Pull them to your back right corner to kill and you wont get any other adds. Dont pull them when there is a roamer golem out in front or he will add and bring more adds. Golems are unmezzable so I just pulled them out front left and faded and tagged the first one pathing back.

After killing the front two guardian golems, clear away whatever the 2 roamer mobs are. It is a lot safer if you also pull and clear the left two static spawn mobs and the right trio of static spawn mobs as you look down to them from up in your camp area. If you want to risk it, you can spawn the named golem by standing on the emblem in between all those mobs and spawn him.

He will pause for about 15 seconds and then wander amongst those mobs and then despawn. If he is not killed there is no respawn timer so you can immediately try again. If you cleared those 5 mobs, you can easily tag pull him single to your corner to kill without adds.

When you kill the named he goes through a lame script and starts a respawn timer. You wont be able to respawn him until the two guardians are repopped and killed again.

I did this cycle for three toons and it was a normal respawn cycle that matched the repop cycle for the zone.

Zone named can spawn from any of the 'floor' spawns and if one does he has an abnormally large aggro radius. He will need to be cleared from the room before you spawn your Vaxztn. Zone named may even spawn in one of the two roamer slots. Again, you cant finish your quest without them adding, so just do what it takes to clear them.

So in hindsight, I should have done the scraps for one toon and started step four for him while collecting scraps for the others. Instead I had collected all 21 scraps and then just watched a hundred rot while clearing mobs waiting to do my incantation three times.

Had a lot op prob with this.

Finally i took of levitation and invis and said it all in one line of my hot key.

You will probably be fighting 2 or 3 mobs as a stone nonrootable see invis mob kept poping on the skull.

When you turn in the 7 scraps/pages - Apothecary Cadmael hands you a Reconstructed Cultist Manual and a Completed Cultist Cipher.

The Manual will be one of three possible and are given randomly.

Reconstructed Cultist Manual
Reconstructed Cultist Manual
Reconstructed Cultist Manual

Each of them says something different (credit to Rasper's for this part)

1) "Ool tn avvbnm oeimph jcgu tcxwgf

3) "Dsemodfiyqif ulkagru if pizp

qt qbvovs cgggblkvqr"

and they translate to:

1) "May an unholy blight wash across these lands The boon of disease shall open the path for the return of the Lord of Pestilence"

2) "We foul our bodies with the blight we worship the Disease Lord with our flesh All hail Bertoxxulous the Unclean One"

3) "Bertoxxulous blesses us with corruption We call upon the Disease Lord to send a herald of divine pestilence"

The Devise a way to activate the document's power in the correct location step requires you to return to the Temple of Bertoxxulous and clear the area in front of the Altar. Once you've cleared enough, you stand on the picture of the skull on the floor and /say the above message based on which Reconstructed Cultist Manual that Apothecary Cadmael gave you. This will update this step in the task and spawn Vaxztn the Purifier - a large golem (DB to 82).

Kill Vaxztn the Purifier to receive the update for Defeat the representative...

The area behind the altar is safe and that is where we pulled the mobs from the area around the front of the altar.

Vaxztn does not summon and is rootable.
