This solo task is the first of four in a task arc from Schelly Starflight in Kernagir, the Shining City. She is located at approximately 405, 60, -50 (first floor, northern building).

You say, 'Hail, Schelly Starflight'

Schelly Starflight says 'I greet you on behalf of the council, outsider. I have heard much about your feats outside the Shining City. As I'm sure you are aware, Brell's presence has been absent for some time now. Shortly after this occurred though, I began to notice some [strange] things in Kernagir.'

You say, 'Strange things?'

Schelly Starflight says 'For the first time in our history, some of those who live here began behaving in a manner not consistent with the will of Brell. Usually it would be a minor issue such as not wanting to perform their assigned duties. With others it was more disturbing; they would become [secretive] and withdraw completely from the other workers.'

You say, 'Secretive?'

Schelly Starflight says 'At first these were isolated incidents, but as more time passed without Brell's guidance, the number of workers showing these symptoms began to increase alarmingly. As it stands now, our once brilliant city of Kernagir has been divided in two - those of us who still follow Brell's will and those who have succumbed to whatever [disease] has infected them.'

You say, 'A disease?'

Schelly Starflight says 'If not a disease then what could it possibly be? It spreads like a plague and if it is not checked, I fear the Shining City will be brought to ruin. Our attempts thus far to identify the source of this aberrant behavior have met with failure. We cannot wait for Brell to return. Given your efforts in the realms outside Kernagir, I think you may be our last hope. Will you [aid] us?'

You say, 'I'll aid you'

Schelly Starflight says 'I am greatly relieved that you will be assisting us in this matter. Unfortunately we have exhausted all our leads so you will need to start anew by gathering information. As an outsider, I think you may be more likely to succeed in your efforts than we were. You should begin by speaking to those who are acting strangely. They can be found all over the city. When you feel you have gained sufficient information to act on, return to me and we will decide your next course of action.'

You have been assigned the task 'Is it Contagious?'.

Schelly wants you to question various workers who appear to be infected with something that has been altering their behavior.



15 "Question ..." steps open up. These mobs are located in various areas around the zone (you'll find some are more commonly spotted than others).

Question a wary guard 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Question an arrogant craftsman 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Question a bitter cleanliness technician 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Question a brooding genati 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Question an imperious crystalline sphere 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Question a distrustful guard 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Question an egotistical artificer 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Question a discontent fabricator 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Question a scornful work supervisor 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Question an irritable miner 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Question a despondent tinker 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Question a contemptuous mystic 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Question a cynical heating supervisor 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Question an unhappy builder 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Question an irate accountant 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Some locations for your shiningcity map file (others needed):
P 24.1599, -952.5431, 155.1933, 0, 0, 0, 1, an_egotistical_artificer (Roamer)

The last mob you hail (whichever it may be) will attack you (difficulty on par with regular trash mobs in the zone).

Defeat your attacker 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Upon this mob's death, you receive A Worn Note.

Return the note you discovered to Schelly 0/1 (Kernagir, the Shining City)

Hand in the note:

Your questioning didn't amount to much but the note you found was certainly an important piece of evidence.

Schelly Starflight carefully examines the note as you explain the results of your questioning and its discovery. 'This is most disturbing! Who ever heard of such a thing as putting yourself above everything else? I will need some time to think about what you have brought me. Please return in a short while.'

VERY IMPORTANT if you do this quest for 2 or more caracters.

For the last hail, only one caracter do the hail.
For the others toons, wait the repop or hail another npc. Because after the last hail, the NPC attack. If someone hail him during the fight the last hail is valid but nobody have the note and you can't do a second last hail.

Just finish the quest for 5 toons in the same order but becarefull for the last hail.

Final hail

Just don't have more than one person hail the final mob or it'll bug. Did this with 3 - bugged task and had to restart. Did first 14 hails together, then had just one guy hail the first wary guard, got update. Second character died on next hail, woops, thought it was bugged but got update on 3rd character's mob's death. No problem just watch that last mob!

I did this quest with 3 other people last night. At first, we all picked up the quest and went about completing all the proper hails saving the Wary Guard for last. In every attempt where we all had the quest active, it ended in failure as noone received the needed update and subsequent cursor page upon the death of the final NPC. We tried no mercs, no pets etc, it didn't seem to matter it always failed. So we then tried having just one person obtain the quest at a time. That person ran around and did all their hails, then we all gathered around for the last hail and splattered the NPC. It worked. We had one merc out and 3 people were using pets and such (cleric hammers and swarms etc, i know big time overkill ;P). The quest doesn't seem to be bugged, but unlike the majority of other "solo" quests I've come across, this one truly means you can only have 1 person in your party with it active. After that, we went down the list and one-by-one we all got our quest done. It took much longer than expected... it was annoying... but it's done ;P.

As of today, this quest is very easily bugged. If someone runs by and hails while you are killing, it can fail to update the "Defeat your attacker" step. If a pet gets the killshot you may not get credit. If a merc gets the killshot you may not get credit. If you are in a group when the mob dies, you may not get credit.

Due to the gm's not understanding what "solo task" means, they will not assist unless you are not in a group, not with a merc, and do all the damage to the mob by yourself, receiving no help from outside. So if you happen to be well enough geared/aa'd, and you know, not an enchanter, you can still attempt this quest with reasonable assurances it is completable. It's probably a pretty tough fight though, also, mobs will assist, so the advice to wait and hail a wary guard until last one is good advice, as very few will be able to solo the 8 mobs that tend to be near the only irate accountant up at the moment (last mob in the task)

Killing additional mobs after it fails to update will just slow you down once you abandon and start over, some of these only have two or three placeholders. If it doesn't update on the one you hailed it won't on any other, though you might be able to steal someone else's hail.

Make sure your log is on, if you do happen to be able to "solo" these.

keep in mind...

For some of the listed mobs, there are numerous spawn locations.

I'm not sure if they're consistant from one zone reset to another.

But, that being said.

P -917.5319, -203.7867, 127.8616, 0, 0, 0, 2, an_imperious_crystalline_sphere

Now. Also, for the final hail.... if you've got a group of 6 toons doing the task, you get to your last npc to hail.... You do NOT loot the note. It appears on your cursor after the npc makes a corpse. So, everyone in the group should hail the last npc at the same encounter. Saves you from having to wait on respawns, OR failing that, save a wary guard for last, or a bitter cleanliness technician, those seemed to have the most spawned at the time I went through the task.

TTFN,

Me

To make this task easier save the "wary gaurd" for last hail, there are plenty of them in several buildings or on the outer wall. There is 1 to 3 of the needed mobs in each building. The "arrogant craftsman" and the "synical heating supervisor" seem to only have one mob each, the "arrogant craftsman" is on a balcony in the NE building and the "synical heating supervisor" is in the larger north building.

Naaa its not bugged. Each person doing the quest should choose a different mob from the list given in the quest as the last one that you each hail for the attack and kill part. Keep in mind this is a solo quest.
