    This task is the third 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 two tasks prior to requesting this one.

    You say, 'Hail, Rupkerr'

    Rupkerr says 'According to the [details] contained within ritualist grimoire the curse can be lifted, but it will require a great effort on your part, for I cannot do much of this alone.'

    You say, 'What details?'

    Rupkerr says 'The spell book speaks of an ancient ointment, which is mixed from an odd list of ingredients found here in the Feerrott. Once mixed, the potion is applied to the skin and the person must incant a spell to activate it. This will make them capable of sending spirits to the afterlife for short time. Are you [willing] to help?'

    You say, 'I'm willing'

    Rupkerr says 'My thanks! To create the ointment, you'll need to bring me the fang of a flesh feeder, a liberal sample of rot dog saliva, an orbweaver's venom sac, and the egg of an adder. I eagerly await your return.'

    You have been assigned the task 'A Cursed Cure'.

    Rupkerr has asked that you assist him in breaking the curse on the slain expedition members and put their souls to rest.



    Loot 1 Flesh Feeder's Fang 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    Loot 1 Rot Dog Saliva 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    Loot 1 Orbweaver Venom Sac 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    Loot 1 Adder Egg 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    NOTE: Since the launch of heroic characters and changes to the Feerrott zone in 2014, "relatively weak" /con mobs do NOT drop the above items.

    This is in particular an issue with the "Adder Egg" - it appears to only drop from "a sinuous adder" (uncommon roamer in the southeastern quadrant of the zone). Don't bother killing weak /con "a slithering adder" because they won't drop it. If there are any regular /con "slithering" mobs, those may still count.



    Deliver 1 Flesh Feeder's Fang to Rupkerr 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    Deliver 1 Rot Dog Saliva to Rupkerr 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    Deliver 1 Orbweaver Venom Sac to Rupkerr 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    Deliver 1 Adder Egg to Rupkerr 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    Rupkerr says 'Ah, you have the ingredients! Thank you for your diligence. I'll be careful to mix these exactly as the spell book says. It should only take a moment.' Rupkerr applies the ointment to your skin. 'The book mentions a waterfall, sacred to the Tae Ew, and a source of mystical power. Recite the incantation within the mists of the waterfall. I have written it on this paper. Once you have done this, please send my brothers to their final resting place, where their souls may know peace at last.'

    You receive a Tae Ew Ritual Incantation.

    Read the incantation in the mists of the waterfall 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    You can do this at location 1560, 2140, -18 (north end of the river). Right-click the note from your inventory.

    Release the spirits of slain expedition members (0/10) (The Feerrott)

    Kill 10x "a restless spirit" (found in great numbers around the ruins in the northeast part of the zone).

    You have slain a restless spirit!
    a restless spirit's corpse lets out a sigh of relief, as its spirit is finally put to rest.

    Inform Rupkerr that you have done as he asked 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    You say, 'Hail, Rupkerr'

    Rupkerr says 'Excellent work, friend! I can feel the weight lifted from my heart, knowing that my froglok brothers are finally at peace. However, there is more to be done.'

    You broke the curse on the slain expedition members and put their souls to rest.

    i had my best luck killing all snakes at the top of the hill north of the lizardman camp Shaman Ixchell spawns at. Kill all nearby snakes, the bonus is by the time you get the egg, you will have probably killed about 5 named in the area.

    Uglord is right about the best spot to camp the 'sinuous adder'. He's the only one that drops the egg, and if you follow the south wall to the east side of the river, go north just a little bit following the river, stand there looking north and you will see 3 roamers pathing right in front of you. One of them is always the sinuous adder. It took me 4 rounds of spawns to finally get an egg out of him but I had already spent a half hour running all over the southeast area of the zone killing all the vipers and slithering adders to no avail before coming here and finding out about the sinuous.

    1) All Rupkerr solo tasks are repeatable, although you most likely need to complete all three and possibly Fall of the Tae Ew (feel free to post at what point they are repeatable). They are a good an easy source of xp and motes

    2) Adder Eggs: Best spot for me is southernmost part of zone, just east of river. There are minimum of three adders that path near here and are easy single pulls to riverside here. Sinuous Adders and Slithering Adders both drop the egg. Sinuous adders are also PH's for Sable, a named red snake that drops a fine aug. I spend no more than 10 minutes to get an egg here.

    For what it's worth: as of 6/22/14 - I only saw the Adder egg from from the 'sinuous adder'.. I killed almost 30 of the 'slithering adder's without getting a single drop, when I started looking online to try to figure out what might be wrong.

    a flesh feeder. - good place to pull these - no wanderers - is +1368, +1846, -14.50. There are three there. Crowd contrl class would be helpfull.

    Rotdogs -1307, +905, 0 by House of thule gate.

    Orbweavers, any flavor can drop it, pos 1319, -1444 13 is where I set up. I just pulled every spider there if no weavers were up. Spiders are a placeholder for the named spider, Malice. At least, I killed a crapload of them and he popped.

    Adders +400, -2521, + 58, there's a two spawn relatively close to there, at least when i was there - two adders slithering side by side. Looks like vipers / adders are PH for each other but I could be wrong. This is where I set up. It's not bad for Orbweavers, either, Anyways, I dont' have a ranger so i just used necro track and ran around spamming F8 targetting everything I saw. When I got an adder, hit it with either disesase cloud if a long pull or short 12 sec mean dot if a short pull. Adders are pretty scarce. I was ranging over 1/3 of that east side of zone looking for them. And they don't drop an egg every time .. kind of 50/50. This is the bottle neck part. Took about 2 hours to get 3 eggs. (Psst.. .bring a tracker if you can.)

    A corrupted Orbweaver

    Orbweaver Venom Sac drops off a Corrupted Orbweaver as well.

    Orbweavers are spread out over the zone though I found most over by the NE side between the Tae Ew camp and the undead in the NE corner. Had a druid track and pull orbweavers to camp.

    how and who do you get this mission from? I have completed "A cursed cure" not sure where or who to ask for next.
    Maybe it is a group mission?
    Fall of the Tae Ew
    # Aug 14 2011 at 12:39 PM Rating: Default
    You get Fall of the Tae Ew from Rupkerr as well. Need a Group usually to get this, although 2 people and a merc might be able to get it as well.

    Rupkerr says 'According to the [details] contained within ritualist grimoire the curse can be lifted, but it will require a great effort on your part, for I cannot do much of this alone.'

    You say, 'details'
    Rupkerr says 'The spell book speaks of an ancient ointment, which is mixed from an odd list of ingredients found here in the Feerrott. Once mixed, the potion is applied to the skin and the person must incant a spell to activate it. This will make them capable of sending spirits to the afterlife for short time.

    You say, 'willing'

    You have been assigned the task 'A Cursed Cure'.

    Rupkerr says 'My thanks! To create the ointment, you'll need to bring me the fang of a flesh feeder, a liberal sample of rot dog saliva, an orbweaver's venom sac, and the egg of an adder. I eagerly await your return.'

    Loot 1 Flesh Feeder's Fang
    Loot 1 Rot Dog Saliva
    Loot 1 Orbweaver Venom Sac
    Loot 1 Adder Egg

    When you loot each of them the quest gives you directions to return those drops back to Rupkerr. I'm still working on looting the drops, will report back when I get them all on the next step.
