This is a solo task that begins with Serrlis in Al'Kabor's Nightmare. He's found in the southeastern pyramid on the Dreadlands isle.

You say, 'Hail, Serllis'

Serllis says 'If you have come to raid our house, I'm afraid you've picked a poor target. Any items of value were ruined when Al'Kabor destroyed our home. Resources are scarce, and what little we have is used to nourish those who are [ill].'

You say, 'How did they become ill?'

Serllis says 'The lands weren't the only thing devastated when Al'Kabor lost his grip, many iksar have suffered as well. Of the few that remain, several have fallen gravely ill. Viskal, our apothecary, has been working diligently to find a [cure], but hasn't had much luck.'

You say, 'Find a cure?'

Serllis says 'I'm curious as to why you have such an interest? Do you intend to [help] us, rather than harm us? Viskal hasn't been heard from in days. He's been conducting his research in the temple just west of here.'

You say, 'I intend to help...'

Serllis says 'Could you check-in with Viskal and see what progress he has made?'

You have been assigned the task 'A Struggle to Survive'.

Serllis is surprised you are interested in the iksar who have fallen ill, but humbly accepts your help anyway.



Find Viskal the Apothecary 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

Viskal is found in the next pyramid over. He's not in very good shape.

Kill the iksar torturers 0/2 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

Kill Interrogator Silth 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

These three mobs surround Viskal's corpse. The torturers each hit for a max ~3,100 while Silth hits for a max ~6,500.

Interrogator Silth has been slain by _____!
Interrogator Silth's corpse falls to the ground with a loud crash.

Loot Viskal's Research 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

Deliver Viskal's Research to Serllis 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

Serllis says 'It's a tragedy that Al'Kabor's errors have caused my fellow iksar to turn on each other. Our survival comes at a great cost. Although we have suffered a great loss with the passing of Viskal, his death will not be in vain. It appears that he concluded his research, and found a possible cure, but I'll need a few ingredients before I'm able to craft the antidote.'

Collect Nettlevine 0/4 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

These are ground spawns within the spire compound where plantation grows.

Loot Drachnid Venom 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

This is a common drop from drachnids.

Give the Nettlevine to Serllis 0/4 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

Give the Drachnid Venom to Serllis 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

Serllis says 'Your help so far has been invaluable, but it seems the last ingredient I need to concoct a cure will be difficult to obtain. The apothecary's research calls for yeti blood, but the only known supply lies in the hands of the iksars that murdered Viskal. I know they will not hear my appeals, but they might be willing to barter with you.'

Speak to Zisak 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

Zisak is in the northeastern-most structure.

You say, 'Hail, Zisak'

Zisak says 'Who has sent you? It is Serllis, is it not? Why should I help her when she so blatantly steals from our meager food supply! My people suffer, too, from sickness and starvation. Serllis will never have her cure if our rations keep disappearing.'

Speak to Serllis 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

You say, 'Hail, Serllis'

Serllis says 'So Zisak blames us for his dwindling food supply? That is absurd! My people are too sick and weak to steal anything. Someone else must be behind this heartless theft. Is it too much to ask for you to sneak into the food supply room to the northwest and find out who is responsible? Maybe if we can correct the situation for Zisak, he'll be willing to part with the yeti blood.'

Head to the store room to investigate 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

This is the northwestern-most structure. You'll be jumped by 2x "a drolvarg thief" which hit for a max ~3,300 and have relatively few hitpoints.

Kill the drolvarg thieves 0/2 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

a drolvarg thief has been slain by _____!
a drolvarg thief's corpse crumples to the floor.

Loot a Meager Ration 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

Deliver the Meager Rations to Zisak 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

Zisak says 'Serllis' kindness shall be repaid with kindness. Please see to it that she receives this vial of yeti blood, along with my gratitude.'

Deliver the Vial of Yeti Blood to Serllis 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

Serllis says 'Many thanks, friend. You bring us hope; and perhaps a cure for the many that have fallen ill.'

Thanks to your efforts, an antidote can be created to cure the many iksar who have fallen ill in the Dreadland ruins.

Each Drovarg thief drops multiple rations if you kill them both 2 others will immediately rush in. (I mean before your can even loot 1 rush) I recommend killing one and looting during the second fight, invis up as soon as kill happens.

The iksar torturers and the drolvarg thieves hit for a max of 3k and not often. Low hps, so it is easier to take them all at once other then split them imo. Nettlevine is found in the middle of the pyramid area where the plants are. Click on the big green plants to loot.
Warning, watch out for the drachnid necromancers, they see invis and usually path outside of Serllis' pyramid!

I just did this today and the torturers were not immune to run speed changes. I was using Atol's Unresistible Shackles (wizard AA snare). This would be resisted if they were immune to run speed changes. I was able to snare at least one of the torturers (it was the only one left alive and I didn't want it to run). Not sure about Silth since he was already dead when I cast it.

The original Atol's unresistable AA actually worked on ALL mobs in EQ, even the ones that gave the emote "immune to changes in run speed". So while you may have been able to snare it, other classes would not have been able to. Plus that AA was nerfed last year so that it wont work on immune mobs anymore.
