This is a solo task that begins with Veldmir Velweaver (map - full zone map) in the Crystal Caverns (Fragment of Fear). He is found in a room in the northwest part of Froststone at location -170, 300, -399.

You say, 'Hail, Veldmir Velweaver'

Veldmir Velweaver says 'Hello _____. Please excuse the mess.' The dwarf gestures to the many [corpses] at his feet, 'Had I known I was going to have visitors, I might have cleaned the place up a bit.'

You say, 'What corpses?'

Veldmir Velweaver says 'Oh, these are much more than corpses! They're a crucial part of my ongoing [research].'

You say, 'Research?'

Veldmir Velweaver smirks, 'Oh don't be coy! You've been here long enough to notice changes in the native population. Spiders, tentacles, and even a few coldain have been touched by fear! Captain Dunstan is doing his part to figure out the cause, and I'm doing my part to figure out a [cure].'

You say, 'What cure?'

Veldmir Velweaver nods fervently, 'Something needs to be done to reverse the effects, or we'll all lose our minds to fear. That is not a scenario any of us want to witness. I've been conducting experiments in an attempt to isolate the fear and remove it, but it is very difficult obtaining test subjects. The creatures within the caverns are all so hostile. It's almost impossible to collect a [living sample] for my studies.'

You say, 'A living sample?'

Veldmir Velweaver says 'I need a control subject, a creature that has not been tainted. I will also need a subject that is already contaminated with the essence of fear. All must be docile and living, which will prove to be difficult without [Tranquilizer Darts].'

You have been assigned the task 'Subdued Subjects'.

Veldmir Velweaver is trying to create a cure for the fear that is plaguing Crystal Caverns, but to do so, he needs living test subjects.

You'll need tranquilizer darts to subdue the test subjects. Derron Coldmist should be willing to craft them.

You say, 'What about the tranquilizer darts?'

Veldmir Velweaver says 'Do you not have any Tranquilizer Darts yet?' The coldain scientist sighs, 'Well then, I suggest you speak to Derron Coldmist. I know he's very busy, but I'm sure if you collect the raw materials he'll be willing to make you some. You'll then use the darts to subdue the test subjects and lure them back to me.'



Speak with Derron Coldmist 0/1 (Crystal Caverns)

Derron Coldmist (map - full zone map) is found in the southern part of Frostone (upper level) at /location -315, 200, -383.

You say, 'Hail, Derron Coldmist'

Derron Coldmist nods as you make your request for tranquilizer darts, 'I can make those, but I'll need a few things first. Bring me an icy tentacle and a crystal venom sac and I will craft your darts.'

Retrieve an icy tentacle 0/1 (Crystal Caverns)

Retrieve a crystal venom sac 0/1 (Crystal Caverns)

Return to Derron Coldmist 0/1 (Crystal Caverns)

Use the darts to subdue a Ry`Gorr watchman and lure it to Veldmir Velweaver 0/1 (Crystal Caverns)

Right-click the dart on a Ry`Gorr watchman. It will become your pet. Lead it back to Veldmir. (Note: You can't invis or fade or you lose the pet.)

Use the darts to subdue a spinechiller spider and lure it to Veldmir Velweaver 0/1 (Crystal Caverns)

Right-click the dart on a spinechiller spider. It will become your pet. Lead it back to Veldmir. (Note: You can't invis or fade or you lose the pet.)

Speak to Veldmir Velweaver 0/1 (Crystal Caverns)

The icy tentacle and crystal venom are rare *updates*. They are not physically dropped items. Just keep killing spiders/tentacles till it updates.

If you have a pet out when you try to charm the spider or watchman you're going to get bugged and need to relog. Everytime I tried to charm them after that it said "this animal has already been tranquilized". It would then shrink the spider or turn the watchman into a rabbit. This happened 8 times in a row before I thought of relogged. Immediately after relogging the spider and watchman got charmed on first try.

where this listed quest calls for an ICY TENTACLE, for the first update and incorrect. It's a TENTACLE BARB that updates the quest.
Dart does not break Invisibility

If you are already invisible, you can use the dart to charm a mob and the mob won't care that you're invisible. The clicky does not break invis. Also, Fade does not break the charm, but other invis effects do.

If you are a pet class, you have to suspend your pet first for this to work.

a tentacle terror is listed as the related mob for this quest, and I killed about 100 of them with no update, then the 1st icy leech I kill I get the update. Me thinks the wrong mob is listed as the related mob.
Icy Tentacle

I did this on all toons being invis......When the tranquilizer fails you will get aggro,however,when the tranquilizer takes hold,you CAN be invis and go to Veldmir to get update without an issue

Eqresource has a map, there are a lot less adds on the way to the east one, only about 3 or 4. Did first time on 2 toons first try so the bugs seem to be fixed.
Buggy...

This quest is full of bugs.

Took about 1 hour to get both mobs tranquilized and brought to Veldmir. The rate of successful tranq is very very low. On top of that Veldmir does not always accept your charmed pet and you have to camp out/in to reset the mob.
