    Lord Qyzar is standing on the parapet one level up in the SK guild, at +1005, -150. At the end of the previous quest, he mentioned a [matter of betrayal].

    You say, 'What matter of betrayal?'

    Lord Qyzar says 'One of our agents, a hero by the name of Goxnok, has found evidence that the book entitled 'Charasis' has been taken from this temple and is to be delivered to an unknown foe in the Outlands. Go at once to the lower levels of the temple and greet Goxnok. Hurry, before he departs!'

    Drop down to the bottom of the western tower to find an Iksar crusader at +1010, -100, -24.

    You say, 'Hail, an Iksar crusader'

    an Iksar crusader clicks his heels together at attention. 'Hail, follower of Pain.'

    You say, 'What about the Charasis Tome?'

    an Iksar crusader says 'The Charasis Tome, the tome of the old city of Charasis. It was taken from this temple and must be returned. The one sent to [apprehend the traitor] who stole the tome must be [ready to depart] with me at once.'

    You say, 'I have been sent to apprehend the traitor.'

    an Iksar crusader spies the khukri sheath at your side. 'This cannot be. I was told a duke would attend the matter. Still, if the Lords have sent you, then you must be able to complete the task. The [traitor] most certainly must be stopped from delivering the [Charasis Tome]. The [recipients] appear quite formidable and I cannot handle such a deed, not single-handed.'

    You say, 'Who is the traitor?'

    an Iksar crusader says 'I am afraid I do not know. The babble is that he is from Cabilis, but he could have been a disguised sarnak. Who knows? The tink is that at night within the Outland territory, near the old skinless outpost, they are to meet. We should depart at once. Go get outfitted and let me know when you are [ready to depart].'

    You say, 'Who are the recipients?'

    an Iksar crusader shows signs of fear and his face turns olive. 'I do not know. The [spider riders]!! I have only heard tales of them from dying lizards. Evil skinless stubs. From the wounds inflicted on the lizards, I can tell they are vicious opponents. Bloated and frayed flesh, disembowelment. Their steeds must have also joined the fray, for some of the victims were covered in webs.'

    You say, 'What are spider riders?'

    an Iksar crusader says 'As I have reported, the babble states they appear to be skinless stubs who ride giant spiders. Most encounters occur when the moon is high. Little is known about them and only in recent weeks have they begun to appear.'

    If you say you will "apprehend the traitor" it will circle back to the first response.

    You say, 'I am ready to depart.'

    an Iksar crusader slings his pack on his back and locks his sheath. 'Very well. I shall follow shortly. You must depart on your own. Go to the plains of the old skinless outpost. Beware, they have returned and patrol the hillside. Keep an eye on the gates of the outpost. I will be disguised within their ranks, I shall kneel as a sign. Give me this coin as your token.'

    You receive A Coin (identifies as "Token of Goxnok").

    Head to Firiona Vie to the "good" elf outpost and look for Tracker Azeal at +670, -2380, +173, who is secretly Crusader Goxnok in disguise. You don't want to hail him there because he doesn't want to break cover, but if you do happen to hail him, you'll see:


    You say, 'Hail, Tracker Azeal'

    Tracker Azeal looks over at you and gives you an awkward smile, then quickly looks away. You notice he isn't like most of the elves you've seen. You can't quite put your finger on it, but for one thing he smells like he hasn't bathed in weeks.

    Shortly before 9 PM game time, he despawns and reappears in a form indifferent to everyone, then walks out of the outpost.

    Tracker Azeal says 'I'm going to start my patrol. I'll report back by morning.'

    This version appears to have an extra space at the end of his name.

    He takes off running toward a spot on the cliffs, then scoots east a short distance and ends up near a boulder at -2560, -1520, where he kneels (the sign he said to watch for). He still doesn't respond to hails. Give him the coin.


    Tracker Azeal begins to pull his face off.. it is a disguise!! 'Aha!! You have made it!! I cannot see well in this disguise, but I thought I smelled you. I have [news of the Charasis tome].'

    He respawns as Hero Goxnok.

    You say, 'What news of the Charasis tome?'

    Hero Goxnok says 'The Charasis Tome has been scribed and now another copy exists. The traitor obviously wants to keep a copy for himself. I am told you will deliver both copies to Lord Qyzar along with your zealot khukri and you shall be awarded that of a crusader. Let us rest for a minute and then I shall show you the meeting place.'

    After a moment, he leaves, saying:

    Hero Goxnok says 'Come along. If we get separated, look for the humanoid wolf camp and beyond the tunnel, you shall find the meeting place of the spider riders and the traitor.'

    After some running, he pauses at -375, -720, +67.

    Hero Goxnok stops abruptly and shudders with fear. 'Look!! There, past the wolf people. Near an ancient tunnel can be found the meeting place. I fear we may be too late. I thought I saw a shadow dash from the tunnels, but I did not see any spider riders. We'll see when we reach it'

    After another moment:

    Hero Goxnok looks over at you and sizes you up before continuing on. He says, 'We should continue, follow me.'

    He runs northeast, cutting across the edge of a drolvarg encampment, and approaches what used to be the drolvarg tunnel but is currently where the good elves hang out. When he reaches +625, -1785, +134, he meets up with a drachnid spy. (Both of them may be on Greenmist faction). Neither of them says anything, but they begin casting various spells: Goxnok casts Grim Aura and summons a pet; the spy casts Skin Like Wood on himself, Goxnok's pet, and Goxnok. You can, of course, attack before they do all this, which might make the fight easier.

    You say, 'Hail, a drachnid spy'

    a drachnid spy looks upon you with evil eyes and you hear a horrid chatter. Hairs rise from the spider's thorax. 'Greetings, creature. What a fine meal you would make!'

    It attacks.

    a drachnid spy says 'You shall not take the tome from me!! I shall snack upon your blood-drained corpse.'

    Kill the spy and loot a Charasis Tome, then hail Goxnok again.

    You say, 'Hail, Hero Goxnok'

    Hero Goxnok sighs slowly, seeing the confusion on your face. He says, 'Yes, ______, I am the traitor. What I can gain by giving up this tome outweighs any patriotic obligations I may have once had. That city is dead, it is now time for us to grasp at our own destinies. I now give you two choices, Iksar. You can walk away and never speak of this to anyone......or you can die. What will it be?'

    It's time to kill him. Beware his Harm Touch.

    Hero Goxnok says 'Die by the power of Greenmist!!'

    Once he's dead:

    Hero Goxnok's corpse says 'You shall now be a wanted man.. The Union of Vie shall punish you.'

    Loot a Charasis Tome Copy. Return to Lord Qyzar and give him both tomes and your Zealot's Khukri.

    Lord Qyzar says 'You disappoint me. I must have the Charasis Tome and its copy along with your zealot khukri.'
    Lord Qyzar says 'You disappoint me. I must have the Charasis Tome and its copy along with your zealot khukri.'
    Lord Qyzar says 'Congratulations! You are now a true crusader, but there is no time for celebration. We have lost two of our operatives. Crusaders Golin and Fodcod were dispatched to seek out an ancient artifact, the [visceral dagger]. Where they have gone, I do not know. They have been gone far too long. Find them and return the dagger to me with your crusader khukri and you shall be a hero.'
    Your faction standing with Crusaders Of Greenmist got better.
    Your faction standing with Legion of Cabilis got better.
    You gain experience!!
    You receive 1 platinum from Lord Qyzar.

    I was able to have my Vah Shir rogue use the iksar illusion and hand in bone chips till he was amiable to the crusaders. My ROGUE did the hails to get the coin and follow the Hero dude around FV. Killed the drachnid, killed the Hero, camped, logged on my lvl 19 iksar sk who i had camped near the goodie outpost entrance, looted, turned in to Lord Qyzar, and got my khukri.

    Did the same thing for the Dalnir dagger in the next quest, as far as having my rogue do all the killing and letting the sk loot. Takes a while, but it's doable =)

    I got so pissed trying to do this quest. Completed it as a 26 sk tonight FINALLY. I read all the posts on this site saying it is "recommended" to be turned in after 7pm GT. BBUUUUTTT it is ***REQUIRED*** after 7pm GT. Tracker Azeal will NOT except "a coin" before 7pm. Figured that out the long and hard way.

    Anyways, Gox starts attacking you while you are killing the drachnid spy so be prepared. As a twinked out 26 SK with too much HP I able to solo this with a good 30-40% HP left over (unbuffed). Wasn't prepared for Gox to attack during spy kill otherwise I probably would have done better.

    Any other info. provided on earlier posts is suffice to get you through this. Good luck

    My 57 sk gnome completed this quest, here is how:

    Couldn't find Azeal where allakhazam said, instead saw him leaving the "ancient tunnel" that is spoken of. This tunnel is not the one that leads into FV city. Instead, its the entrance hallway to the hidden valley that the FV good elves have taken refuge in. Azeal mentioned something about doing some scouting, then took off south at sow speed towards the ocean. My sk gnome has fabled boots so easily kept up. Goxnok stopped and knelt by a rock, at -2560, -1561. At this point my sk handed him the coin and then Azeal disappeared and Goxnok spawned. My gnome said the charasis phrase, Goxnok said his own things, then he took off running again. He stopped about a minute later, paused for about a minute and then took off running again. Unfortunately, my sk had drawn a train and so FDed to get rid of it. I got delayed in doing that and in looking at the FV map and so was not able to unFD the sk in time to follow. I lost Goxnok and went looking around uninvised. For some reason, my sk was no longer dubious to the FV guards and so they surprised me with a few heavy hits. Sk tried to make it to the Swamp of No Hope zone line but died along the way (the guards were keeping up with fabled boots, plus they can throw spells while running. Cheaters. Sigh.

    Rezzed and prepared for second attempt, armed with 7 buffs. Placed my two other boxes at a strategic location to help draw greenie agro away from sk. Waited for Azeal at the spot he knelt before. Within a few minutes, saw him and gave the coin. Sk never did say the charasis phrase so I guess its not necessary. Goxnok stopped at two places during his run..first was at -364, -707 and second was just south of a drolvarg building, which in turn is just southwest of the "ancient tunnel". After that, he ran right next to the drolvarg building and stopped just out of agro range of the FV elven guards at the ancient tunnel. He summoned a pet skel and the drachnid spy spawned. The spy was an easy kill for a 57 sk. Then my sk did a HT on Goxnok which killed him right off. Looted both corpses then ran out of the zone.

    Lower level toons who are attempting this quest are going to have probs. The drolvargs and pilgrims see thru invis, as do some of the drachnids. The good elven guards/merchants can't see thru invis, but if you are KOS to them and they see you then you gonna die. The drolvarg faction in FV is Pack of Tomar...not really something to worry about. But pilgrims and drixies and the good elves are all 'Inhabitants of FV' faction so beware if you intend on working faction there.

    Good luck,
    Shadome

    I successfully completed this quest this evening. In my experience, Hero Goxnok now spawns as expected, and although I did lose him a few times following him around FV due to aggro from other mobs, I eventually found him due west of the tunnel (pos642 neg1779) with our buddy, the drachnid spy - not sure I've ever been that happy to see a drachnid before.

    Hero Goxnox not spawning

    I attempted this part twice tonight with my SK alt. Handed the coin in to the kneeling Azeal, got the expected quest text, and Azeal despawned. However, Hero Goxnox did not respawn in his place, both times I attempted this. Since he never spawns, the Drachnid Spy cannot be triggered, even if you do run to approximate location where the end of the event takes place.

    Perhaps this is due to SOE tweaking with the spawn tables for the 6th Anniversery, in addition to loot tables. There's recent posts that indicate activity in the subsequent quests after this one, so I'm guessing this part of the quest hasn't been broken (again) overly long. Anyone feel free to add/correct anything.

    The hero Goxnok in dusguise as Tracker Azeal does not spawn now!!! There is NPC Tracker Azeal in Drolvarg camp, but he is KOS and of course does not accept "A Coin". I had two 60+ SK's helping me. They both completed the quest, but before the war. We waited for Azeal to spawn and kneel, but he did not. I also had high lvl RNG to track him down for me, but nothing on track! I have petitioned this issue 3times, but soe answered the quest is working as intended. Im lost now! Tried everything. Can anyone tell me if you have completed the quest recently(after FV war) and if yes HOW???

    I have been working this part of the quest now for a few weeks and I agree that this indeed appears broken. I have been trying to search for other NPCs instead of Azeal that kneel but no luck. I have even started turning the coin into other NPCs, in case they don't kneel... nothing. Indeed this seems to be broken since the war between OT and FV mobs.

    I've been working on the khukri quests with my lowly lvl 12 sk with the assistance of a friend, just to see if it can be done. I was under the impression a level one would be able to complete Greenmist with the right kind of help (not MQ's mind you; just babysitting. Sk has done all of his own looting thus far).

    Anyway, when I did the coin hand-in Tracker Azael ate my coin, and told me he 'didn't wish to discuss such matters with me until I had increased in rank' or something similar. I'm assuming he's speaking of level here. I've gotten all of my faction boosts for my turn-ins up to this point, so my faction should not be a concern. Greenmist can be completed by other races with Dubious faction, can't it?

    Struck me as odd that Qyzar wasn't at all bothered by my level when he gave me the quest, and neither was the crusader, yet Azael ate my coin.

    Perhaps, with multi-questing (and a some hand-holding in order to get to the forge in Dalnir, etc.) a level one SK could indeed complete Greenmist, but it doesn't look like they could get past Azael if they were the one turning in the coin.
    Just leaves me wondering whether Qyzar or Arch Duke Xog or someone might not also eat your khukri and items, refusing to reward you with the next khukri, due to insufficient level.

    After the first time getting confused and almost dieing, i tried again, this time i took /loc's and below are "alterations":

    4. Get some Sow potions if possible and head to Firiona Vie Zone. Invis and go East-SouthEast to loc neg 2546, neg 1560 avoiding "a pilgrim" or "an explorer" (they see invis and you are KoS). "tracker azeal" may not be there yet, but he will run out to this spot and kneel.

    5. Only attempt the following at Night (5ish game time it starts getting dark, and there are fewer spawns). Remove your invis and con the tracker from far away. If he cons "indifferent", then it's the Hero Goxnok in disquise. Hand "tracker azeal" the "SILVER COIN" and it will say "Tracker Azeal begins to pull off his face... It is a disquise! AHA! You have made it! "I cannot see well in this disquise, but, I thought I smelled you. I have [news of the Charasis Tome]

    6. "what news of the charasis tome" and he replys: "The Charasis Tome has been scribed and now another copy exists. The traitor obviously wants to keep a copy for himself. I am told you will deliver both copies to Lord Qyzar along with your Zealot Khukri and you shall be awarded that of a crusader. Let us rest for a minute, and then I shall show you the meeting place"

    7. Here's where you must be sowed (run3 was fast enough). He will stop a couple of times to let you catch up. I recommend using invis to avoid any suprising MoBs.

    8. Eventually, he will stop at loc neg 375.88, neg 712.91 and say: "Look!! there past the wolf people, near an ancient tunnel can be found the meeting place. I fear we may be too late. I thought I saw a shadow dash from the tunnels, but, I did not see any of the spider riders. We will see when we reach it. (follow him once again to loc pos 623, neg 1772)

    9. Drop invis and look for the "drachnid spy". Make sure that when you are fighting it you remain FAR way from the posted Drovargs near the tunnel's entrance. The Drachnid spy will say "You shall not take the tome from me!! I shall snack upon your blood drained corpse".

    10. Slay the drachnid spy. After you loot the CHARASIS TOME from the drachnid spy's corpse, "hail Hero Goxnox": He sighs slowly, seeing the confusion on your face. He says "Yes (your name here), I am the traitor. What I can gain by giving up this tome outweighs and patriotic obligations, I may have once had. That city is dead, it is now time for you to choose (your race?). You can walk away and never speak of this to anyone.... or you can die...what will it be?

    11. Slay hero Goxnok (be cautious of his harm touch). Loot the CHARASIS TOME COPY. Proceed back to Cabilis.

    12. Hand in the 2 copies of the tome, and your Zealot Khukri to Lord Qyzar, and you will receive a CRUSADER KHUKRI, and the following information:

    Lord Qyzar says `Congratulations! You are now a true crusader, but there is no time for celebration. We have lost two of our operatives. Crusaders Golin and Fodcod were dispatched to seek out an ancient artifact, the [visceral dagger]. Where they have gone, I do not know. They have been gone far too long. Find them and return the dagger to me with your crusader khukri and you shall be a hero.'

    True, and you might have to wander around a little bit before you see the drachnid spy. But beware how "late" in the night you start this, if it's morning by the time you get to the drolvargs the drachnid won't spawn. Looked everywhere, had a tracker too, and no drachnid. Hailed Goxnox and he gave the "ya, I'm the traitor..." speech. I kicked his traitorous tail in frustration, and he told me when he died "You are now a wanted man... the Union of Vie will punish you" or something like that, though there was no faction hit of any kind.

    Judging by the hero's harm touch (HT hit me for 271) , the one I killed was level 27. Although I think his level can vary between 25-28 or so. I would guess the spy to be around that level also, as they both took about the same time to kill. Either way, both green cons and easy kills for a solo level 55 sk.

    Could a lvl 32 sk take both of them on? If not with temperance could he?

    The NPC's in FV dont hate us because we are SK or DE or Iksar or whatever....they hate us because our Diety is an evil god. If your diety is Innoruuk or Cazic...U are done...not amount of faction will make it better, you are KOS for life (or their death).


    Sallar 57 DE SK

    Servant of Innoruuk
    Crusader of Greenmist
    Murphy's Law - all that can go wrong
    # Sep 16 2002 at 10:51 AM Rating: Good
    After spending HOURS on this quest and running up against EVERYTHING that could go wrong, I will generously share the following advice:

    > If you have have a friend helping you, park the friend at the tunnel entrance (where the final battles occur). Have this character keep the area clear of mobs. They can also help out with the adds that occur during the final battles (I had 7 adds during my final quest attempt).

    > You don't HAVE to speak with Qyzar/the crusader to get the coin, then run to FV and start the quest all at once. Yes, you need the coin, but Goxnok can be spawned at anytime by a second SK - even a newly created character who hasn't even begun the Greenmist quest.

    > Performing the quest at night seemed to reduce the amount of wandering drixies and pilgrims. However, some of you may want the extra challenge of training half a dozen of these while following Goxnok.

    > Before you approach the disguised Tracker Azeal, make sure there are no wandering mobs nearby. I had one aggro on me before I handed in the coin and the disguised tracker assisted the mob I was fighting and AGGROED ON ME! Furthermore this tracker mob was WAY tougher than Goxnok, camped me while I was FD, was still KoS to me after I got up from FD and I couldn't get it to respawn after I had lured him [far] away (with a second character).

    > As was mentioned in another post, don't do this with a non-Iksar. Also, if you happen to run by a non-Iksar who is camping the Drolvargs while you're following Goxnok, Goxnok will aggro on the PC. After this happened I couldn't get GoxNok to forget about the PC and had to kill him and start over.

    > When GoxNok gets to the tunnel, you have to be patient and WAIT for the drachnid spy (it says "drachnid spy" as the mob's name). I got impatient the first time we arrived there and Hailed Goxnok in hopes that he'd hurry up the spy's arrival. Instead, Goxnok gave me the message to "choose or die" and then I never did get the spy.

    As a nice bonus - enough to make up for all the problems which I had incurred - Lady Chromoire aggroed on me TWICE while re-redoing this quest. The first time she didn't drop the wings, but the second time she did. Both times she was located around the broken-looking patch of ground near the path, in a straight line as you run from the NW corner of FV to the tracker spawn point.

    I did this quest with my sk and tracker azeal spawned about 11pm. I knew it was him cuz he kneeled, just like he said he would. And he does kneel at the location previously given by Noxist(neg 2551, neg 1540). This location is right at a rock. I had a druid with me for tracking which made this a bit easier. I also had some buffs from some level 50 friends which was extremely nice for my level 36 self.

    What makes this a pain in the neck is all the possible adds you may get doing this. The pilgrims HATE iksar along with everyone else in the zone. When I did the final fight, I had to kill to drolvargs first and feign off a pilgrim on the way there.

    When you get to the final location, the drachnid spy shows up and is amiable until you Hail him. So if you need a extra minute or two to get rid of adds, you have the time before you have to engage him and Hero.
    Fixed and Done.

    This quest is now fixed on povar. i saw the thread here and went on to check if it was true. and this is what happend. i did the opening of the quest and then ran to FV following the river to the bridge then past to the far south right wall where i saw Tracker Azreal at THIS LOC neg 2551.05 neg 1540.66 this was at 6 am game time i didnt have to wait at all. i droped shadows and /cond him and he was indiffrent so i gave the coin to him and followed him to the cave once there the Dracknid spy wont pop till you get there and drop invis you then need to hope that there is someone killing drovalgs. i had to fight off 1 drovalg and both goxnok and the spy all at once and i was alone save for a pally i think named Corn. (Thanks Corn woulda died if it wasnt for you) andy way after regaining conciousness (yes is was that close twice) i was able to loot the two tomes and then shadowed up and bolted to Lake zone. now here is the good part. At the completion of this quest i was lvl 30 i am now lvl 31 they coned drk blue to me and the drovalgs ranged from drk blue to red if you do this solo good job but my guess is that you will take someone with you any one will do just another body to take the add on drovalgs. so now i have my Crusader's Kuhkri and i am going to look for the dagger next /sigh another long camp. any way the dracknid spy and goxnok are mid to high 20s no more this had to be the easyest quest i have dont over lvl 10 i spend 20 lvls on the test of pain.. /frown

    take it light
    Still broken

    Unless they have moved his spawn location he is still broken - camped his location for 5 hours last night with no sigh of him.

    Azeal's back! Happy hunting scaled folks, oh and my fellow non-iksar crazy people too. Now go get that sword!

    His name is tracker azeal and I watched him sit in his spawn point at the end of bridge for quite a while and he never moved. I then logged on another account and triggered the quest and he still wouldnt move. He never turned un scowling either. I think he is stuck or something. Maybe if the GM's killed him and he respawned he would work. I sent in bug reports emails and everythig and they keep saying he is there sorry. kjfdhkjhkjhfdhfd

    This is because, unfortunately, the huge majority of people at Verant don't know the quest well enough to understand it is broken. I called down a full GM on a petition about it and he said the same thing till I (politely of course) told him that the one at the bridge isn't the one for the quest - we need the "doppleganger" version as it were, that doesn't spawn at the bridge, but outside on the cliffs. When I told him that he quickly checked and told me to bug report it, because he wasn't spawned in a second form at all. I also doubt the messages in Cabilis act as a trigger, since the quest was implemented before Verant had nailed down how to cause one event in one zone trigger something in another if I recall right.

    Here's hoping that the patch today got it fixed. If not, anyone even thinking of doing the Khukri quests /bug and /feedback and email (I don't remember the Address the GMs in chat gave me, but I'm sure if you ask them NICELY they will give it to you, and be patient too) to get this fixed.
