You say, 'Hail, Vurgo'

Vurgo says 'Welcome! I am Vurgo, follower of Solusek Ro and holder of the [harvester] and the [Words of Darkness].'

You say, 'What harvester?'

Vurgo says 'I can forge you one, but you will need to bring me the correct [scythe components].'

You say, 'What scythe components?'

Vurgo says 'The first thing I need is a shadowed scythe from our mortal enemies, the shadowed men.'

Give him a Shadowed Scythe.

Vurgo says 'A shadowed scythe! Well done! The only good shadowed man is a banished one. As the weapons of the shadowed men have a tendency to disappear, I have given you a note to remind me that you have indeed supplied me with a scythe. Give me the note with the following items and I will forge you a harvester: a fungus eye from a mortuary fungus in the Estate of Unrest, a shadowed knife from an island goblin headmaster in the Ocean of Tears and a fire opal. Give me these items, and I will forge for you a harvester.'
Your faction standing with Temple Of Sol Ro got better.
Your faction standing with Shadowed Men got worse.
You gain experience!!

Hand in the items.

Didn't realize quest text was needed... but here's what I did manage to get:

Vurgo in Temple of Solosek Ro (/loc 355.98, 90.89, 18.06) you /hail him and he will give you prompts about the harvester. I had given him the shadowed scythe previously and he had a long speech about giving me a note (didn't record it, sorry).

Today I handed in the note, shadowed knife, fungus eye, and Fire Opal and he said:

"I can forge you one, but you need to bring me the correct [scythe components]. Solusek Ro does not beleive in half measures. Solusek Ro does not beleive in half measures.Solusek Ro does not beleive in half measures. My note, a fungus eye, a shadowed knife and gold! All of the necessary components to make a harvester. Well done, adventurer!"

He gave me the Harvester at this point.

Faction + with Temple of Sol Ro
Faction - with Shadowed Men



Did the quest because a true necro needs a harvester (and on TLP it's an up for me atm).

I did the harvester Q today at level 36 and totally un twinked (near enough naked infact). Ran to OOT and killed the goblin there (click on him to see my post about him) Then went to unrest for the eye. I found it quite easy to switch between invis V undead and gather shadows to get past the monsters in the basement. Be warned that when you jump down into the pits (which are hidden btw) you will be attacked instantly and have no room to root or kite it so you have to tap tank it (and throw a dot or two on the fungus) I got lucky and got the fungus eye 1st kill. I gated out of the pit and then got a port to WC were i killed the shadowed men (again i posted on them seperately). once you have all the parts and the fire opal (which i bought in baz for 40pp) hand them in to Vurgo in Sol Ro, you can hand in all 4 parts at once and he will give you a note - only once you give him the note back will you receive the harvester - hope that helps you all.

If you pull from the shadowmen camp on the southwest corner of the map.. all of them WILL agro. Worst part is you cannot outrun them without some very high level sow. I died to find this out and hope you do not do the same mistake.

Hmmm which shadow man camp am I most likely to get this from?
#TyrnNInh, Posted: Oct 05 2003 at 12:43 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The best place to get the shadowed scythe is in West Commonlands. There is a group of shadowed men on the western border of the zone, among them is a monk shadowed man that often drops the shadowed scythe. Note: the monk shadowed man doesn't wield any weapons, so the only thing you can see of him is his name floating in the air.

You can do this at level 1, if somone gets you the items. For that matter, the harvester is tradeable. They can just do it for you and give you the completed harvester.

I just finished this quest at 41 and had a blast doing it. Camped the shadow men for about 4 spwans in Nekulous which got me the sycthe (be careful they are hard to see and train even when green plus 2-3 of them they can easily kill 39 pet with full a full set of phantom plate from my mage friend who was helping me). Turned in sythe that in and got a note then went to OOt camped the headmaster , killed him and second time got shadowed knife (LT blue at 41)( also got a robe of the oracle while i was there). Hardest part was the fugus eye but i lucked out and there happen to be a 45 druid in unrest willing to pull the Mortuary Fungus (she was in wolf form so not to train the whole place) Killed him about 7 times before it dropped. And a fire opal i just bought from a vendor in Shadow haven for 70pp i think (didnt know you could get one from Genni in the temple). All in all id say it is worth it even though i am DE and already have UV , the see invis is great (one less thing to memm and cast) Plus it looks great on a necro and makes it seem like i can duel wield (even though i cant) Plus it just looks so fresh . NOt to hard of a quest at 41 with a little help from your friends. Well thats it, good luck necros of norrath and my evil be with you.
great for pvp servers

Out of curiousity, I used my expel summoned on these shadowed men. It works great. So, if you're having trouble with the Scythe, just use this line of spells if available.

useless to de now
# Jul 18 2002 at 5:09 PM Rating: Default
Since the newbie armor quests have been added for dark elves this item is pretty much useless to a de necro. The writ of the fallen is much easier to get and has better stats than the harvestor. Imo deadeye is no reason to be lugging this thing around and the 5str really isnt any good when you consider the 8 stone that this thing weighs.

Sorry, but that's silly. The Writ of the Fallen is a great item (I still have it at 41), but both the Writ and the Harvester are PRIMARY/SECONDARY... so the best thing is that you can have both! I'm all for playing as a Battle Necro fighting toe-to-toe with mobs, but it's really not efficient beyond the mid-20s/low-30s... if you can't do decent damage then you might as well carry a useful item instead of a weapon and swap it for a weapon when you're killing greens without a pet.

As for the weight, effectively it weighs 3.0 because of the STR bonus; there are plenty of weapons for Necros that weigh that much, so it's not a big deal.
RE: useless to de now
# Nov 22 2003 at 4:50 AM Rating: Default
Sorry, but the first guy is right. This thing is useless. You can buy a good stein, or another book for that matter, in the Bazaar... for way less that you'll pay for that fire opal. Also, this thing doesn't even compare to the Writ of the Fallen. The Writ is a decent item into the 40s... I wouldn't put this thing on an alt.

Deadeye IS an ultravision... with the ability to see invis also... I thought. I wouldnt imagine it to do anyhting negative to anyones vision.

Actually your both wrong. Deadeye is a combo spell of infravision and see invis. It is great for the non-dark elf necros and sk's. Only reason to cast it as a darkelf is for the see invis part, It won't down grade your ultravison to the infra it will just grant you the see invis part of it. There is an upgrade to this spell later on called, shadow sight, however that is only ultra vison, no see invis. Your other see invis option comes in at 49 and the is dead man floating.

actually it is see undead and INFRA vision (which is a step below ultravision-think DarkElf night vision versus halfelf). Play a Erud or Hum necro and this is all to apparant. Anywho just my 2 cp
