|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This task begins with Skal Nethus in the Plane of Knowledge. He's an Erudite found at location -320, 1200, -111 (close to Franklin Teek).
You say, 'Hail, Skal Nethus'
Skal Nethus says 'Come closer! You smell...odd. Yes, have you been crawling around in dungeons? I smell the bacterial spores on your armor. You should be careful: [dungeon rot] will make you unpleasant in ways worse than odor. '
You say, 'Dungeon rot?'
Skal Nethus says 'Adventurers pass through here all the time, wreaking of the stuff. It seems to be spreading through dungeons everywhere. Just last week I was accosted by a putrid, infected halfling. He accused me of wanting to steal his powers. His skin was boiling red, and a cloud of spores billowed about his body. He lifted me above his head and tossed me into a fountain. His [anger] was five times his body size, and I was afraid for my life.'
You say, 'Anger?'
Skal Nethus says 'Creatures infected with Dungeon Rot have augmented [strength] and rage. How else would a halfling overpower someone as large and fit as I? I am not positive, but I think the Rot spreads more easily to creatures with anger running through their veins. That is why I resisted the halfling's infection: I am a naturally calm, composed individual.'
You say, 'Strength?'
Skal Nethus says 'Ah, you know me too well. Yes, my interest in the Rot is not wholly selfless. I would like to find a way to cure adventurers of this blight, but I am sure it would be possible to manipulate the compounds of the disease in order to safely [augment] one's strength. Doubtless, it would be safer than my previous experiments with those [Voidsouls].'
You say, 'How can you safely augment it?'
Skal Nethus says 'Bring me samples of Dungeon Rot from dungeons and caves around Norrath. If I can synthesize the various strains of the disease, a power increase is almost certain...and we can cure any adventurers that are unlucky enough to become infected. Will you [collect] some samples?'
You say, 'I'll collect some'
Skal Nethus says 'Thank you! Look for the stronger creatures in these dungeons. I am sure they are more susceptible to the disease because of their propensity for aggression. But be careful that the Rot does not spread from them to other nearby angry creatures.'
You have been assigned the task 'The Dungeon Rot Infected'.

Speak with Skal Nethus 0/1 (Plane of Knowledge)
You say, 'Hail, Skal Nethus'
Skal Nethus says 'My, this Dungeon Rot is potent! I am surprised you have not come to me with your face like magma and your arms waving in a frenzy. With my extensive knowledge and capabilities, I will extract the strength-giving compounds from the spores...ah, here we go. This substance I have synthesized will grant you power without ill effects. Here, take some of it as compensation for your efforts. Now I must consider whether I can concoct a cure for the blight...'
The above 13 items come from the 13 hot zones added with the December, 8, 2010, patch.
