Rephas is a crazed hermit who lives near the lake in the Qeynos Hills (northwest corner of the zone), with a penchant for rat ears...

You say, 'Hail, Rephas'

Rephas says 'Aagggh...Get away from here.. Go, run.. Far away.. Or I shall call [Karana's] wrath upon you!'

You say, 'Who is Karana?'

Rephas says 'Heh! Ignorant one! Begone, and take your stupidity with you!'

He doesn't have much to say about rat ears (he may if your faction is better), but if you give him the regular "Rat Ears" (common drop from rats or can buy them off Katha Firespinner in Commonlands), he'll give you an item called "Grilled Rat Ears" (edible and stackable).

Rephas says 'Ahh yes... These are a little small, but still some good eating, if you know how to cook 'em of course... Here ya go, enjoy and may Karana keep your fields lush and green.'

You gain experience!!

If you give the "Grilled Rat Ears" back to him, you receive a minor item, faction, and experience.

Rephas says 'Wha?... Ah, I guess it's a bit of an acquired taste... Oh well, your loss... Here, take this... They ain't no ears, but it's the least I could do... And if ya find any more rat ears, good ol' Rephas here will be glad to take 'em off your hands for ya!'

If you give him 3 "Giant Rat Ears", you receive a recipe for Rat Ear Pie (Giant Rat Ears + Baking Spirits + Cup of Four in a mixing bowl). The Rat Ear Pie is used in the "Paw of Oppola" quest.

Rephas says 'Hey... wow... Now THESE are some good, meaty ears... These will make one great rat ear pie... Tell ya what, kid... bring me a few more o' these beauties, and I'll give you my secret recipe for cooking 'em.'
Rephas says 'Hey... wow... Now THESE are some good, meaty ears... These will make one great rat ear pie... Tell ya what, kid... bring me a few more o' these beauties, and I'll give you my secret recipe for cooking 'em.'
Rephas says 'Wow!... How big was the dang varmint that these come off of?! Bigger'n a ol' grizzly, I bet! You've earned this, my friend! It's my own secret recipe for rat ear pie... sure is tasty, easy to make, and keeps your belly full while you're running about in the hills and such. Take care, and may Karana keep your path clear and our lakes full.'

On the new Fippy server, I'm getting acquainted with these newbie quests.

Rephas is a human enchanter, with his pet. He can be found down by the little lake in the NW corner of the zone, near Surefall Glade, near the Barbarian fisherman. My level 2 half-elf ranger of Karana (indifferent to him) hailed him, but he didn't say anything about rat ears.

/say Hail Rephas
Rephas says Aagggh...Get away from here.. Go, run.. Far away.. Or I shall call [Karana's] wrath upon you!

/say Who is Karana?
Rephas says Heh! Ignorant one! Begone, and take your stupidity with you!

Nothing I tried with Karana's in it got him to say anything else. So I gave him my rat ears, and he gave me the grilled rat ears, and they are not lore, and are stackable.

Rephas says Ahhh yes... These are a little small, but still some good eating, if you know how to cook 'em or course. Here ya go, enjoy and may Karana keep your fields lush and green.

Buyable components in East Commons! This quest rocks!

I got my Arcane Scientists faction from indifferent to MAX ally in 20 stacks. That's one trip, no matter how bad your faction is. It cost me a total of 4pp for those stacks, and I simultaneously raised my Knights of Truth faction from scowling to dubious. My FP Militia faction was already max KoS, so no harm there.

An added bonus, if you're ever near this dude and are in need, he casts some buffs on you when you do the turn ins.

When I was through, I noticed I had

Breeze
Intellectual Superiority
Endure Magic
Strengthen

all cast on me, though I'm not certain how often he does this. It's still kind of cool.

If you're going to hunt in Qeynos Hills, bring a stack of rat ears with you or loot them off the rizzo's. Hehehe...

I just did this quest with my newbie Ranger char and the grilled rat ears he gave back were *not* lore and they stacked. They were edible as the description says, just not lore.

The rewards I received from him for in turn giving him back the grilled rat ears were mostly tattered sandals and fish scales (he must spend all his time fishing from there on the dock), along with the spells Weaken and Lull (much less common reward than the junk, as one would expect).

Quest Details for an Iksar monk
# Aug 22 2002 at 8:14 PM Rating: Good

How an Iksar monk (lvl 27) can do this:

1) buy about 2-10 stacks of rat ears in EC at the vendor.
2) get someone to invis you, move into position behind the mob, and make sure sneak is working
3) drop invis, turn in 1 rat ear at a time, you will receive faction and exp.
4) give the grilled rat ear that he gives you back to him for another hit of faction and exp.
5) Drop any other items onto the ground (most common reward is fish scales (about 2/3 of the time).

It took me 2 stacks of rat ears to go from KoS to dubious with him in wolf form (without wolf form I am still threatening). Hopefully this will get me non-kos with the Knights of Truth (which is the big reason that I'm doing this quest).

At the end of 5 stacks, I'm up to amiable in wolf form, and dubious without wolf form. Somewhere around 10 stacks I hit "kindly considers you". Stack twelve got "Arcane Scientists" to maximum improvement (while Rephas is still only "kindly").

The amount of experience from this quest is neglible at level 27 (maybe 1/3 blue per 8 stacks of rat ears).

If you're already KoS to fp militia, the tried and true method of getting back into their good graces is to slaughter gnolls and orcs in highpass. (yes, zones and zones away)

Save their scalps until you are able to turn them in to the guards for faction. (see highpass quests for the respective guard names)
these give all + faction, including FP militia.

Once you've done that, you might scoot down to the basement of Highkeep and either kill the goblins, or buy up their ears from those already camping them. These give the same faction hits but more total points of faction.

Anything you can do to get to dubious with FP militia will let you do the orc pawn pick quest in East FP. It's tedious, but a guaranteed method, and doesn't require any special talents or abilities. If you can't kill orc pawns.. well.. faction isn't your only problem. ;)

If you notice...it says it correctly...

+Arcane Scientists
+Knights of Truth
-Freeport Militia
-Opal Darkbriar

where (+) means increase in faction and (-) means decrease in faction, so there's nothing wrong there...

Should be:

Factions Raised:

Arcane Scientists
Knights of Truth

Factions Lowered:

Freeport Militia
Opal Dark Briar

KILLING him does the reverse (raise opal raise militia, lower arcane lower knights) So if your knights and arcane are high, killing him is a good way to get non kos with militia. My druid got from like threaten to amiable that way while only getting to dubious with arcane.

The quest description above says that Arcane Scientist and Knights of Truth faction are raised with this quest...yet the column on the left shows that they are LOWERED.

Which is it? I'm trying to get my faction up with Arcane Scientists so I can buy spells there.

Also, it would appear from looking at the NPCs that the Caster guild NPCs are on both Knights of Truth AND Arcane Scientist. If I raise my Knights of Truth faction up high enough will that be good enough?

I've killed probably 200 DF Orcs and have turned in nearly 30 DF Belts and they haven't budged off of dubious for me.

Ideas?
Qeynos Flour Only!!!

You can NOT use flour from East Commons to make the pie!!!

I had just got the plat ring from Befallen (last one needed) so I grabbed some flour from the Commons in case I couldn't find any in Qeynos. When I got to Qeynos and tried to make the pie, it wouldn't work.

I tried everything - oven rather than mixing bow; 1 giant rat ear vs 2 regular ones; camped to check the quest here to make sure I had the recipe right; even handed the rat ears into Rephas to make sure the recipe was listed crrectly here!

Turns out that while they are both called "cup of flour" they are different items. One weighs 0.1 and the other weighs 0.2 and they don't stack together.

Everything you need to make the pie (flour, baking spirits and mixing bowl) can be boutght in Qeynos in a building just North of the Fish Ale Tavern (along with the Kalish you need to turn in with the pie to get the Paw container I believe)

Uhhhh... From everything I've seen, you're supposed to combine all the ingredients in the mixing bowl, which will give you an "uncooked rat ear pie." THEN you put the uncooked pie in the oven/spit. That would certainly explain any invalid combines... Hope this helps.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jul 27 2001 at 9:28 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) if u want the pies made for free ask pompo or wadarson ( both me) & I will make it for u if u bring me the ingreadiants for them ( giant rat ear, baking spirits, and cup of flour) i am on daily about 5 pm eastern time M-F about 10 am to whenever on the weekends
You can do this real easily

To make the questreal easy you dont need to do the quest at all just have a baking skill of about 10-15 and with the ingredients (2rat ears or 1 giant rat ear, baking spirits, and a cup of flour.




I have a question
# Jun 09 2001 at 7:43 PM Rating: Default
I heard from a high lvl Druid that if you give him the result of Giant Rat Ear + Cup of Flour + Baking Spirits, that he will cook it for you?
You can MAKE the pie with a low skill...
# Jun 04 2001 at 4:53 PM Rating: Default
Baking it however is a whole nother story...

I think that's what takes the higher skill, because at 30ish skill, I couldn't bake them... So I'm not sure what skill baking them requires
How much skill do you need to make a pie? [NT]
