Antus will give you the quest and take the fishing pole at dubious, unlike the cat quest.

I'd heard of Algathin before, and decided my 6 Rogue (slightly twinked, all from people donating because they saw a nearly naked Barbarian Rogue female running around PoK trying to get to Bazaar with 20p, hoping for at least a Needlite Stinger or something), and went to Toxxulia. First thing: found him with a /loc from a very kind Wood Elf Ranger (Rangers f'ng rawk with Tracking!), no name needed, and proceeded to back attack with a Netherbian Unguis (8 dmg, magic & lore, +2 STR, +10 HP, great for a broke, newbie Rogue -_-) Okay, well, problems arose: he turned and lifetapped. Owch. 250ish HP, went down to 200 or so. I got worried, and I worked some Rogueish magic, IG: I waited until right before he casted to start attacking, and stopped his DoT. Next cast, I've got him to 70%, and it was a minor DoT. Well, 210 HP starts going down. And down. And down. By the time he's 30%, I'm 25%, and hitting the Healing Potion 2 up hard. Yes, I finished him and got the fishing pole (Yes!!), but got left at 10%. Admittedly, skills weren't that good, and I had no resists. Gr.

As a 13th level Necro on FV server I had VE on, sent in pet, cast Leach and Clinging Darkness. He was running before I stepped up to the plate. Got the fishing pole and an ale to boot so it wasnt trivial to me yet.

Btw, I found him at p468,n455 waiting for an asswhoopin.

Well, I wanted to work on my Deepwater Knight faction, so I'm wandering Tox before heading to good old Elial Brook, and find this Algithin person, but he scowls. Assuming he's on heretics, I kill him and get the opposite faction hits to above - neg heretics, positive to deepwater and caster guilds.

600000 reasons this quest is worth it

1 you can kill this guy easily as a necro at lev 11 even if he does double spawn

2 if the fishing pole is better do it twice

3 the quest gives better xp then both of the shaggy old fishermen

ok so theres only 3 reason i give it an a++ stop rating all the newbie quests badly
lay off

At a low level you're still going to have to step up to the front and fight once in a while to save your pet from becoming prematurely dead and this is one of the better DPS weapons for a newbie necromancer in Paineel until you get high enough to kill the High Shaman in the Warrens and get the Runed Bokken.

does he still double spawn? if so this quest is a total waste cause by time you can kill him. Both of him, that is the quest isnt much good. Kobies are more fun anyway.

My Erudite wizard was KOS to Algthin, but my lvl 36 druid friend took him out for me twice.
Used my lvl 15 Shammy to slay him for my Erudite necro friend for quest. We have not completed the turning in but we both got poles and beer. only one spawned in for us on three tries.

I am playing a DE Necro and thought I'd visit the other Evil nation. I arrived to find I was "Threatning" and figured it was due to the differance in Gods we worshiped. I went into the Warrens and began to slaughter Kobolds. I killed roughly 20 of them and came out to Con one of the guards. "Dubious" I thought "alright, this won't take long at all" WRONG. I have killed literally hundreds of them since then and no change to faction. QUESTION: Am I wasting my time? Is the different Diety worship to much to overcome? I have gone through 3 stacks of food and water and have to beg because I have no where to buy from.

this faction does take forever to raise but is possible just takes a long time the best way I found was to run around and kill all the named kobold ofcoarse you may not be able to do that but if you can it works considerably faster

You can buy and sell at the druid ring if you are a dark elf necro. There is some goody two shoes erudite who wanders near there so make sure you have a pet with you.

I think this quest is a waste of time because there are better items out there and if you want fraction with the Heratics just hunt the guys in Warrens
what staff
# Jun 26 2001 at 7:39 AM Rating: Default
all i got from him was a beer and the pole.
RE: what staff
# Feb 19 2002 at 3:45 PM Rating: Default
Apparently you didn't read the entire paragraph. If you hadn't stopped reading at "Your task is to slay him..." you would have saw it say "... and bring back proof of the deed." Which means you have to take the pole back to Antus Shelbra to get the staff. Try not to be so anxious next time.
Double spawns
# Jun 04 2001 at 8:19 AM Rating: Default
yeah...even on erollisi...we have our many shares of double spawns...haven't seen aglthin or guards or the like, but plenty of other things...spiderlings, fire beetles, skellies....nothing that can cause much harm...anyone know the cause of double spawning?

At lvl 9 i decided to go and take out this "frail old fisherman" and get this staff for the hell of it, and when i got there he conned blue to me so i poison bolted him, sent pet - BLAM! - theres 2 of him hitting me on aternate swings in perfect unison. I couldnt fear or anything cause i was interupted repeatedly, he hit for an average of 20(and so did his twin) and i died very quickly.
I then got an enchanter friend to come with me so that wed have 2 pets and no problems - yeah right, the fisherman immediatly aggro'd on my friend and ignored both our pets while they killed us - they killed us.
This is the only double spawn ive ever run into, and being that necro's dont have a wide variety of low lvl quests, this make Immortile mad -VERY MAD!!
9 necro - Solosek Ro
Double - Triple (!) spawns
# Apr 26 2001 at 1:32 PM Rating: Default
Seen it everywhere, on everything BUT the NPC's who drop da Goods (heh guess Verant CAN stop the double spawn bug IF they want too :P )and have occassionally seen THREE spawns all on top of each other. Worst case of that was taking on a wooly in EF to find out it was three stacked. Oh well, you play you pay I guess :) .
Why can't you get over it?
# Apr 12 2001 at 5:01 PM Rating: Default
Almost every post is about him double spawning, does anyone read the stuff before they post?

No Gatekeepers
# Mar 25 2001 at 3:21 PM Rating: Default
There is *no* "Gatekeeper" faction in Erudin. Unlike the other cities with caster guilds, Erudin has three separate caster guilds, each with its own faction (although most quests for one will raise or lower faction with all three at the same time).

Crimson Hands: Wizards
Craftkeeepers: Enchanters
Gate Callers: Magicians

There are no "Gatekeepers." None. Someone just got confused and merged the chanter and mage guilds when they wrote down a faction hit.
The pole and the quest

The pole can break when fishing with it and no it doesn't fall into your inventory when that happens it actually disappears.
The guy does also seem to double spawn and no he doesn't float above the air there are just two of him there with the same name, seen it on 3 different servers (Terris-Thule, Luclin, Seventh Hammer) you have to get up close and you will notice two fishing poles or you can attack him and notice two guys coming after you.
No faction hits for killing him and the pole is lore so kill both of the double spawned guys but you can only loot one pole that looks silver in your inventory but looks like a normal pole when equipped and can break like a normal pole if you fish with it.
RE: Double Spawn
# Mar 10 2001 at 11:06 AM Rating: Default
I had a double spawn in East Commons (anything floating, mainly the spiderlings) it's just a glitch you should try to avoid if you can't handle 2 ( if at a low level)



Good hunting
is there a reverse quest
