This quest begins in South Qeynos with Wolten Grafe, the Keeper of the Medallions of the Order of Thunder. He is located at -189, -554, +3.


Quest actually begins with a scripted dialogue between Wolten Grafe and Runethar Hamest, before players even speak to Wolten.

Wolten Grafe walks up to Runethar Hamest.
Wolten Grafe says 'Your excellency, we need to recruit a newcomer to find and infiltrate the Shrine of Bertoxxulous. The shrine's eyes are watching all our moves.'
Runethar Hamest says 'Hire one soon, Wolten. We need to get in touch with Drosco!'

You say, 'Drosco?'

Runethar Hamest says 'Have you knowledge of Sir Drosco? He is a Knight of Thunder and reports to Sir Wolten. He has been missing for quite some time. I believe Sir Wolten has begun a search for him.'

You say, 'Hail, Wolten Grafe'

Wolten Grafe says 'Hail, noble _____. Remember to spread the words of Karana throughout the faraway lands on which you shall tread. We of the Temple of Thunder are looking for new members - good people who [wish to join our cause]. Let the call go out!'

You say, 'I wish to join the cause.'

Wolten Grafe says 'That IS good news! If you walk the righteous path of the Rainkeeper, Karana, then you are truly noble. I have need of someone like that. I must find someone to perform a [dangerous mission] or perhaps you would rather seek out the [Rat King] or [crush the undead]?'

You say, 'What dangerous mission?'

Wolten Grafe says 'You must go into the catacombs and find a man named Drosco Finlayer. Pass him this note. He has been deep undercover in the Shrine of Bertoxxulous and will have directions to that vile place. To do this will surely show your allegiance to this temple.'

You receive a Tattered Note (identifies as "Note To Drosco"), which reads:

THE STORM IS NEAR !

Find "a zombie" in the Qeynos Catacombs, room 7 via eqatlas.

a zombie says 'Rele... ase... me... from... this... tor... ment... ARGH! You will die for entering the domain of the Bloodsabers! Karana... help... me?'
.
Your faction standing with Bloodsabers has been adjusted by -10.
Your faction standing with Guards of Qeynos has been adjusted by 1.
Your faction standing with Opal Dark Briar has been adjusted by -1.
Your faction standing with Priests of Life has been adjusted by 2.
Your faction standing with Corrupt Qeynos Guards has been adjusted by -1.

a zombie's corpse says 'ARGH!... Thank... you...'

Loot Order of Thunder (a medal which identifies as "Drosco's Medal") which you need to take to Wolten Grafe.

Wolten Grafe says 'Ahh. Drosco's Order of Thunder. You are truly an honorable knight. Many vile people would pay greatly for this medal. I thank you for its return. I shall honor you by rewarding you with a thunder staff. Meant for young clerics and paladins of this temple. Never let it leave your side.'
Your faction standing with Knights of Thunder has been adjusted by 50.
Your faction standing with Bloodsabers has been adjusted by -50.
Your faction standing with Priests of Life has been adjusted by 37.
Your faction standing with Guards of Qeynos has been adjusted by 37.
You gain experience!!
You receive 8 gold from Wolten Grafe.

You can also occasionally loot a Sealed Letter from the zombie. It identifies as "Note to Temple," and reads:

Dear Temple of Thunder, Thank you for the lovely retreat to the Shrine of Bertoxxulous. I especially loved the bubbling hot baths, although I think I stayed in too long because all my flesh was boiled clean off my body. Oh well, back to wandering the catacombs. Love, Drosco, agent of thunder. P.S. I think the Shrine was not fooled.

On turn-in:

Wolten Grafe says 'This is terrible news. It is good you did not find your grave in the catacombs. You completed your mission regardless of the odds of survival. The temple thanks you. We still require your service, Knight of Thunder. Events have transpired which put all agents of righteousness in danger. We can not explain all as yet. Take this note to Freeport. You will give it to Eestyana Naestra at the Hall of Truth. Beware, now. The Shrine of Bertoxxulous now knows of your allegiance. Give me any other item you may have found on Drosco's body.'
Your faction standing with Knights of Thunder has been adjusted by 50.

That note drops off Drosco sometimes and can be turned in as well to the same guy (Wolten) for faction hits and XP.

Couldn't figure out a way to get the id to show up in a log file any more.

/outputfile inventory filename.txt

with the item in your inventory or bank. Find the item and will have the ID number.

Lucy and magelo sync can be used to get the ID also. Lucy under characters - inventory or watching the dialog scroll by when you see / get something new. Not sure on magelo, something about sync-ing your character then looking up the profile and the item.

Example /outputfile from a new Rogue. Gloomingdeep Lanter is ID 9979, Dagger* is ID 9997.
Location	Name	ID	Count	Slots 
Charm	Empty	0	0	0 
Ear	Empty	0	0	0 
Head	Empty	0	0	0 
Face	Empty	0	0	0 
Ear	Empty	0	0	0 
Neck	Empty	0	0	0 
Shoulders	Empty	0	0	0 
Arms	Empty	0	0	0 
Back	Empty	0	0	0 
Wrist	Empty	0	0	0 
Wrist	Empty	0	0	0 
Range	Gloomingdeep Lantern	9979	1	6 
Range-Slot1	Empty	0	0	0 
Hands	Empty	0	0	0 
Primary	Dagger*	9997	1	6 
Primary-Slot1	Empty	0	0	0 
Primary-Slot2	Empty	0	0	0


Identify spell gives the Lore which is generally unique also, to narrow down a multiple result item search for the named item, like the sealed letter ( http://everquest.allakhazam.com/search.html?q=sealed+letter ).

First off, you don't loot a letter. You loot "Order of Thunder", an amulet that identifies as Drosco's Medal. You give it to Wolten and this is his text:

Wolten Grafe says, Ahh. Drosco's Order of Thunder. You are truly an honorable knight. Many vile people would pay greatly for this medal. I thank you for its return. I shall honor you by rewarding you with a thunder staff. Meant for young clerics and paladins of this temple. Never let it leave your side.'

Your faction standing with Knights of Thunder got better.
Your faction standing with Bloodsabers got better..
Your faction standing with Priests of Life got better.
Your faction standing with Guards of Qeynos got better.

Okay, camping the zombie at the nesting rat spawn area. I arrived, the PH geletinous cube was up, killed it and waited for the respawn, it took approx. 23minutes 20seconds, just incase anybody is sick of waiting on their *** for the stupid zombie, you can return when you know its respawned, then leave to do something else for a bit.
Working as intended

Compleated the quest today with a level 10 cleric using sooth to reduce agro range and hand in the note. A Zombie dropped amulet on first try and turned it in for the back equipable ThunderStaff (which I'm using as a cape). Also picked up about 5 gold lockets (nesting rat popped about every 3rd spawn of the rats, just stood in the center of the room and cast Words to wipe out the normal rats).

As of this date, I can confirm that the quest is still active the way it is described by Wolten. However, the Order of Thunder amulet is a rare drop off of a rare spawn. So my suggestion is to leave this quest alone if all you are after is faction or a 2hb weapon. Unless you are seriously intent on getting the Thunder Staff. If you are, here is what I found out: I spent five or six days sitting in the room with the three rats (the nesting rat was sometimes one of the spawns). Every 25 minutes "a zombie" or it's place holder (much more common) a gelatinous cube, came in and stood almost on top of the center rat. Other mobs would wander in and out during this time but they stopped a little more towards the center of the room. The zombie will attack you at any point before he gets to this spot or after he leaves unless you are invis to undead. After he stops moving, he will stay there for a few minutes (never let him leave so couldn't tell you how long). This is the ONLY time you can give him the note from Wolten. by the way, this zombie is on the Bloodsabre faction, so you can only give him the note so often before he won't take it anymore. He will then ask you to kill him and thank you as he dies. The sealed note is a 50% drop. The order of thunder is a rare drop. Killed this guy at least once a day for five or six days and finally got it tonight. Again only do this if you are determined to get the Thunder Staff. Good Luck!

im a lvel 8 monk. ive been in the aqceducts, and killed stuff, and BEEN killed by stuff. now what i wonder is, am i too low to do this quest? is it necessary to give Droscoe a note from anyone in order for him to drop more quest stuff? ill probably group with someone else to help, just in case. do you think i (we) would be able to pull it off?

If this zombie was sent to QA to spy on the Necs and SN, is there an evil side to this quest? I'm sure the guild leaders in QA would love to know, or at least have him dead... I for one would love to remove any spies from my beloved home, any info?

The previous spawn tellers are not telling true.
Drosco spawns both in the circular Nesting Rat room AND down the twisting hallway just before the spectre guards. There ARE 2 spawn points at least as I have visually witnessed. Anything that wanders into the cirle room (Nesting Rats) and stops in the center is a placeholder. Kill it. Beware the HIGH lvl Necros and Spectres that are now placeholders also. And for those of us (you) who think the quest is broken in this spot contact Everquest and let them know! The more contacts the more likely they will fix this. Its not an awesome quest item but for us roleplayers, we love closure on our quests.

Should have known something was up when he only conned apprehensive to me instead of scowls. I looted medallion and note. What I want to know is my chances of getting staff if i turn it in. Otherwise I'm just as happy with medallion for its CHA and AC. Good Hunting

After weeks of hunting on and off I finally got the "order of thunder." Here is what I learned. The note from Wolten seems to have no relation to getting the order of thunder. when I finally got it, the "a zombie" had aggro'd on me so I could not give him the note. I was near its spawn point outside the shrine of betoxx. It looks like it is a rare drop on a rare mob.

All of Healix's information below seems to be correct.

IMHO this quest is broken but still doable.

WooHoo! On the fourth day of hunting the zombie I finally got the amulet and Thunderstaff. To all of those wondering if this quest still works, as of this post date, it does work. Now, I'm off for the Bonethunder Staff!

Good luck everyone!

I'm another poor sole who's attempted this quest without success. Here is what I've learned and varified from the info already provided in this thread.

I'm a level 11 High Elf Cleric. My faction to the Clerics and Paladins of Qeynos is Kindly. (Just below Warmly)

1. Drosco or his place holder, a gelatinous cube, spawns near the necro guild, close to the Spectres, but not close enough to be in danger of being attacked. I timed it to be about 23 minutes plus or minus a minute.

2. Drosco stands there for a minute and walks to the the room with the three rats, as mention below. It is here that you are able to hail or give him the note without him attacking you. If you cross his path before getting to this spot, he just attacks you in normal undead fashion.

3. If not attacked in the 3 rat room, after a few minutes he walks where the "Mercenaries" are and stands there for awhile. I've watched the cube do the same thing. When arriving at the sewers, check the mercenaries if he is not in the rat room (Best map to learn the sewers is at eqatlas.com)

4. I've learned that Drosco's spawn is completely random. One night I camped for nearly five hours, like those below, with no spawn. The next day I saw him several times. Camped again the day after and only saw him once. If there is one thing that seemed to vaguely help me out is that I would go out and frequently restart the quest with Wolten Grafe. (just get the letter again) You can kill all the rats and various creatures throughout the surrounding area all you want, it won't help. Believe me, I've tried. =)

I've killed him on his way to the 3 rat room. Killed him in the 3 rat room. Killed him at the Mercenaries. Killed him at the spawn point. I've killed him without giving the note or hailing him. Killed him after giving the note. I've gotten the note off him every time, except when I killed him near the mercenaries, got a rusty weapon instead. I've never gotten the pendent.

I'm at my wits end, can't believe that such a low level quest is so hard. I've wondered if because I'm level 11 and Drosco is green that the pendent won't drop. However, someone posted below that they were hunting the spectres and got the pendent. My complaint isn't that the zombie spawn is too rare, but that the pendent is never dropped.

Does anyone have any further info that might help all of us who can't get the drop? Has anyone gotten the drop recently?

I spent 10 hours in the Aquaducts last night. Killed the Zombie 4 times total, and a number of Cube place holders. Your info on the spawn seems to be about right from what I saw. Twice I gave him a note in the rat room. The second time I killed him he was in the rat room, and I could walk up and hand him the note, he dropped both letter and Order of Thunder. I tried to get a second amulet to wear, but repeating the process of the first success did not get me a second amulet.

I think the Order of Thunder is just a rare and random drop. I don't think he will spawn if you don't kill the Cube place holder though.

Good luck everyone
