    This task is the second of two tasks offered by Dark Alchemist Illian at approximate location 1200, 145 in the Feerrott.

    You must have completed his first task, "Protecting the Weak (Minded)" in order to request this one.

    You say, 'Hail, Dark Alchemist Illian'

    Dark Alchemist Illian says 'Ah, welcome back. I've looked over the data you've given me, including the final bile sample, and it's quite puzzling indeed. There's certainly [more to investigate] with this phenomenon. Unless, of course, I have your [word] that any attempts on the original solution would go better than the last.'

    You say, 'More to investigate?'

    Dark Alchemist Illian says 'Before we examine the river more carefully, I'd like for you to investigate the portal to the realm of Fear. Do not wander inside, no, I rather cannot take the time to try to collect your remains out of there should you perish to the denizens within. No, instead, I want you to [collect samples] from the beings just outside, namely the blood of the bloodbone skeletons.'

    You say, 'I will collect samples.'

    You have been assigned the task 'There's Something In the Water'.

    Dark Alchemist Illian turns back to his work, replying with a simple, 'Good. Go now and I'll prepare for the samples.'



    Loot 3 Bloodbone Skeleton Blood Samples from the bloodbone skeletons 0/3 (The Feerrott)

    Bloodbone skeletons are found in the southwestern part of the Feerrott.

    Note: The skeletons are rootable/snareable and do not summon.

    Deliver 3 Bloodbone Skeleton Blood Samples to Dark Alchemist Illian 0/3 (The Feerrott)

    Speak with Dark Alchemist Illian 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    You say, 'Hail, Dark Alchemist Illian'

    Dark Alchemist Illian dips a finger in the blood you've returned and tastes it, shaking his head slightly. 'It's not the same. Well, that was quite useless... or not. At least we verified what the source is not.' Frowning thoughtfully, he continues, 'Let's move forward, let's look back at the [river].'

    You say, 'What about the river?'

    Dark Alchemist Illian says 'There are two places that I'd like for you to take samples from. Up north, around where you had examined the blighted gorillas, I'd like for you to take a sample of the waterfall. The source itself may be what's coming from around that blasted city of Oggok, and the waterfall would be a good sample of that. As for the [second]...'

    Inquire further about Illian's needs 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    You say, 'What second thing?'

    Dark Alchemist Illian says 'The second location would be the southern end of the river, to where it disappears beyond the Temple. It's no secret that something is down that direction, but it's unclear just what it may be. I'd much rather you return alive with your sample than dead and I lose the sample, so please gather the second sample near the Temple of Cazic-Thule itself rather than beyond it. Go. Do not pass it, or you don't collect your pay.'



    Gather sample Azia from the waters near the waterfall 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    Gather sample Beza from the waters at the southern end of the river 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    Upon gathering a sample at the southwestern fork of the river, "an awakened rotdog" spawns and attacks.

    Defend the sample received 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    Kill awakened rotdog. It hits for a max ~5,000; is rootable/snareable; has ~500k hp; and summons.

    NOTE: If you die to this mob, or if someone else kills it, there is no known way to respawn it.

    Collect the head of the rotdog as proof 0/1 (The Feerrott)



    Deliver 1 Rotdog Head to Dark Alchemist Illian 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    Deliver 1 Filled Water Collection Vessel Azia to Dark Alchemist Illian 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    Deliver 1 Filled Water Collection Vessel Beza to Dark Alchemist Illian 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    You say, 'Hail, Dark Alchemist Illian'

    Dark Alchemist Illian says 'Dark Alchemist Illian quickly puts down the water samples to look over the head that was returned with more detail. 'This... This is interesting. I'll have to investigate this further. And a strange gate, you say? There's one last thing I ask for you, and that's to examine the gate, then return to me with what you find.''



    Explore the gate discovered 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    Zone into the House of Thule via the gate at the south-central zone boundary of the Feerrott.

    Speak with Dark Alchemist Illian 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    You say, 'Hail, Dark Alchemist Illian'

    Dark Alchemist Illian nods slowly. 'I won't ask you to go down there to investigate the area, and you've done what has been asked of you fairly adaquately. If you wish to examine that area further, that is up to you, but at this point it's beyond the scope of my own work.'

    Faction adjustment
    # Jun 01 2016 at 8:12 PM Rating: Decent
    The faction adjustment is +10

    Also, you do not need to zone into House, as it updated when I was standing very near the gate.
    No way to recover
    # Nov 23 2013 at 10:49 PM Rating: Good
    If you die to the rotdog and someone else kills it, there's no way to spawn him again. I have /bugged this to SOE.

    Bloodbone Skeleton Sample:
    --------------------------
    Around the most SW corner of the zone, They are mixed with spectres and its harder to pull.
    And not many of them there, like 5 or 6 spawns only.
    Any red looking skeleton at the camp can drop the sample, bloodbone/bloodbath skeleton/lich...etc.

    Water Sample:
    --------------------------
    Azia sample is easy, just go to the northern end of the river, you will see waterfall and some gorillas.
    Just steps into water and collect the sample, its safe even without invis.

    Beza sample can be obtained at the southern end of river, just close to the House of Thule zone.
    Once you click the bottle, Awaken Rotdog will shows in aggro list instantly.
    Its an easy fight to compare to the bloodbone skeletons you just killed, also much easier to compare to empowered zombie in Illian #1 quest.
    Only 1 ppl can do this part at same time, many rotdogs have to die if several ppl in the group need it.


    Explore the gate:
    --------------------------
    Just get close to the gate to House of Thule, the quest will update, you don't have to zone to HoT.


    Exp:
    --------------------------
    For ppl whom has 2500+ AA can get 1 AA only.
    For ppl whom has 2000+ AA can get 2 AA.
    Both of above characters are under 100% xp to AA mode, lv85.

    To whom misunderstand the way to calculate the xp needed for AA, the character level doesn't matter.
    Total AA which character already gained is the key to determined how much xp you needed for next AA.
    So someone who is lv90 can get 10AA from this quest, the character prolly only has 500-1000AA or so.

    Gives 9.20AA to a level 90 on 2011-11-10

    Extremely quick mission if you can kill the Awakened Rotdog.

    Rotdog cannot be mezzed or charmed. Does summon. Can be slowed and stunned. Blue to a 90.
    Done at Lvl 80

    Once again I have got / completed this at Level 80 not 85.

    XP is great, went from AA 2 +43% and Main LVL 80 - 87% to AA 7 +48% and Main LVL 81 - 1%

    Basically I have completed the Partisan of the Feerott missions and in the process gone from Lvl 80 - 81 with the XP.

    After handing in the skeleton blood samples:

    Speak with Dark Alchemist Illian 0/1 (The Feerrott)

    [Tue Jan 11 15:42:09 2011] You say, 'Hail, Dark Alchemist Illian'

    Don't do like I did, and accidently click the filled water collection vessel. Even though you'll be able to kill the awakened rotdog and loot his head, you won't be able to refill the vessel to allow Illian to accept it from you.

    Best I could nail it down was at approx: -1106.84, 694.76, -26.89 . Note that spam clicking WILL work, despite a listed cast time on the bottles. Both of these update spots are VERY sensitive so good luck!!
    South end of the river location

    Confirmed, just south of Shalma in the middle of the water, you have a few seconds to get set up in your camp after you get the sample.

    I did it right by where Shalma stands (at the corner of the temple building) in the water. Far enough from the undead that they didn't agro. Be ready for the Awakened Rotdog to spawn right away.

    Also, in the current writeup, the "Explore the Gate" step doesn't require you to zone into House of Thule, it updates just standing near the zone entrance on the Feerrott side.

    you must first complete the task; protecting the weak 9minded) in order to request this task.

    You say, 'Hail, Dark Alchemist Illian'
