You say, 'Hail, Shevra Kollintar'

Shevra Kollintar says 'Unless you intend to [make yourself useful], do not bother me. I await the return of our Lord, Cazic-Thule. He comes, and I shall be the first to greet Him. I will train you, if need be, for He looks upon those who aid Him kindly. If you are not here for training, return to your meditations or bother someone else.'

You say, 'I will make myself useful'

He was seen resting at an inn called 'Golden Roosters' in High Pass Hold and is en route to Erudin Palace. He may be carrying a message containing information of great value to us. Hunt him down and return to me with the letter he carries. I will reward you for this task.'

When you kill Malik Zaren for his letter you get - HighCouncilofErudin, - HighGuardofErudin, + Heretics, + RingofScale, + Kerra. The factions that go down are different from those that go down for doing most Paineel quests or killing most Erudites, so Malik Zaren is quite good for building Paineel faction. Then when you finish the quest you get + Heretics, - DeepwaterKnights, - GateCallers, - CraftKeepers, - CrimsonHands.

This quest is pointless for anyone who can complete it. Malik is a pain in the ***** and you need to be ~level 20 to kill him. All you get is BI, which you should have better than at this point in your career.
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 06 2001 at 3:42 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Yea I agree with you.

Well I once got a BI Crown from yjis quest, and twice BI boots which fetch a decent price, so I'd say it was useful for fundraising, if nothing else
