This task is the second in a series of three that begins with Rupkerr (click for map image) is found in the safe area in the north-central part of Feerrott, the Dream at approximate location 1175, 1340.

You must have completed his first task, "An Expedition Gone Awry" in order to request this one.

You say, 'Hail, Rupkerr'

Rupkerr says 'This doesn't seem right. While my brethren's mission was of the utmost importance, it wasn't an expedition of force. Who or what could be responsible for their deaths? You say that you were [attacked] by a lizardman when you found the journal?'

You say, 'I was attacked!'

Rupkerr says 'It's certainly strange that the lizardmen were lingering so close to the froglok corpses. While not known for their shining intellect, the lizardmen have ascended beyond being just simple scavengers. Regardless, they obviously had an interest in the expedition journal. If you could recover the [pages], maybe I could make sense of their hasty scribbling.'

You say, 'I'll recover those pages'

Rupkerr says 'If you find the lizardmen, I am sure you will also find the pages. They have multiple camps scattered around the Feerrott. Good luck to you.'

You have been assigned the task 'Uncovering the Truth'.

Find the Missing Journal Pages 0/4 (The Feerrott)

Loot four Missing Journal Pages (dropped randomly by "a lizardman _____" mobs in the zone). Note: These are not pre-lootable.

Reassemble the Journal 0/1 (The Feerrott)

Deliver 1 restored expedition journal to Repkerr 0/1 (The Feerrott)

Rupkerr thumbs through the journal pages with unnerving trepidation. Rupkerr says 'Quite disturbing, indeed. It seems the expedition force stumbled upon an ancient lizardman clan, whose beliefs delve into dark ritual and sacrifice. The bloodstained scrawling is hard to make out, but I believe my brethren have been cursed. By what, I'm afraid that knowledge escapes me. However, if these journals are correct, I'd wager a Tae Ew ritualist would have a grimoire that could identify the curse.'

Recover the ritualist's grimoire 0/1 (The Feerrott)

You'll find some Tae Ew ritualists near the Cazic Thule ramp area. Kill them until you loot a Tae Ew Ritualist Grimoire. NOTE: This is not pre-lootable.

Return the grimoire to Repkerr 0/1 (The Feerrott)

Thanks to your efforts, Rupkerr now has the ritualist's grimoire in his possession, and can hopefully find a way to remove the froglok's curse.

Rupkerr says 'I'm amazed you that got your hands on this book! Rarely do we have the chance to get such an intimate look at the Tae Ew. I'm sure I'll find what we need in here to lift the curse.'

So I just completed this quest, at level 85. The reward states it is approximately 3% of the exp needed from 85-86.
With 70% of my exp going to AA, I gained 1 aa, with about 20% to spare, and 2% main exp.

I firmly believe that Feerrott, The Dream is the armpit of Norrath. But that area around the Cazic zone line? I'll let you guess which part that is...

First, the bad news: There are see-invis lizards running helter skelter all over the place, Karnor's-esque chain aggro, undead that love to pop out of the water, and the temples where the ritualists hang out are tough to single pull.

The good news? It's only a zone away from PoK, so running back to rez doesn't take long.

Crowd control is strongly recommended. An enchanter almost makes this bearable, but be prepared to keep 4-5 locked down at any given time.

The missing journal pages are prelootable as in you can complete the restored expedition journal. But you will still need to loot 4 pages to update the first part of the quest. If you completed the restored journal with pre looted pages then just hand in the journal to Rupkerr and it will update the restored journal part and he hands it back to you. Then hand it in again.

First you collect 4 pages from any lizard camp in the zone
Right click the journal and it will auto assemble [do not confuse this with the grimoire in the next part]
turn in the journal to Rupkerr

Now go to the temples and loot any of the trash laying around for the grimoire [its always camped and there are always bodies around]
Turn that book into Rupkerr

Done with this portion of the progression

*Note to people without healers
You will DIE...a lot and often. Every other lizzy see's through invis and the aggro is pretty fierce. Don't start this if you just got your new level because you'll lose it if you're wandering around willy nilly. Also, stay away from the water. Those GD undead are a pita. Find a corner, tuck yourself away in it, pull..kill, rinse and repeat.

Don't bother trying to pre-loot the pages or the Grimoire, if you do then you will not get the updates.

You also cannot loot it in an instance. I was on that step of the quest, and I looted one in the Fall of the Tae Ew group task, and it did not update my task.

Task has a 6 hour request lockout from the previous request time. It is repeatable, though you may need to have completed all 3 solo tasks before you can request #1 and #2 again (not sure). Good quick and easy XP if you can get your drops quickly. Also the grimoire does drop off of ritualists in the "Fall of the Tae Ew" task, but I don't yet know if they will give you the update.
also drops from...

To find the missing journal pages hit any lizardman camp in the zone the pages themselves are fairly common drop, once you have 4 pages in inventory right click the journal to restore the journal then return it to the questgiver.
For the grimoire go to the tae ew camp close to zone in and kill mobs till you find a ritualist which drops the grimoire, fairly common drop.
Turn the grimoire in and done

You say, 'Hail, Rupkerr'

Rupkerr says 'This doesn't seem right. While my brethren's mission was of the utmost importance, it wasn't an expedition of force. Who or what could be responsible for their deaths? You say that you were [attacked] by a lizardman when you found the journal?'

You say, 'attacked'

Rupkerr says 'It's certainly strange that the lizardmen were lingering so close to the froglok corpses. While not known for their shining intellect, the lizardmen have ascended beyond being just simple scavengers. Regardless, they obviously had an interest in the expedition journal. If you could recover the [pages], maybe I could make sense of their hasty scribbling.'

You say, 'pages'

You have been assigned the task 'Uncovering the Truth'.

Rupkerr says 'If you find the lizardmen, I am sure you will also find the pages. They have multiple camps scattered around the Feerrott. Good luck to you.'

You loot 4 a Missing Journal Page off any of the lizardmen.

Once you get them, turn them into Rupkerr.

Rupkerr thumbs through the journal pages with unnerving trepidation. Rupkerr says 'Quite disturbing, indeed. It seems the expedition force stumbled upon an ancient lizardman clan, whose beliefs delve into dark ritual and sacrifice. The bloodstained scrawling is hard to make out, but I believe my brethren have been cursed. By what, I'm afraid that knowledge escapes me. However, if these journals are correct, I'd wager a Tae Ew ritualist would have a grimoire that could identify the curse.'

You'll find some Tae Ew ritualists near the CT ramp area normally. Kill them until you loot a Tae Ew Ritualist Grimoire. This will update your task. Bring the Grimoire back to Rupkerr.

Your task 'Uncovering the Truth' has been updated.

Thanks to your efforts, Rupkerr now has the ritualist's grimoire in his possession, and can hopefully find a way to remove the froglok's curse.

Rupkerr says 'I'm amazed you that got your hands on this book! Rarely do we have the chance to get such an intimate look at the Tae Ew. I'm sure I'll find what we need in here to lift the curse.'

The experience you get for the reward is about 8% into regular experience at level 86.
