Irak Altil

Irak Altil is an indifferent skeleton who wanders the Plane of Fear. He has an emote he gives off occasionally.

Irak Altil moans and continues to shamble across the barren landscape, oblivious to the monstrosities surrounding it. It mumbles to itself softly.

You say, 'Hail, Irak Altil'

Irak Altil turns its head upon its dried, cracked spine to look at you with a rictus grin. After staring through you it continues to walk on.

You say, 'What are you mumbling about?'

Irak Altil turns its rotted eyesockets towards you. 'Fallen light, upon this ground I fell. Left to rot, cast out. My holy arms stripped and my soul cast out of the halls. Twisted, failed, disgraced.'

You say, 'Why are you disgraced?'

Irak Altil says 'Disgrace upon my soul for failing in my duties. Disgrace of my brethren.'

You say, 'What duties?'

Irak Altil breathes his words from his skeletal mouth as if wind through a valley. 'Sword, shield, breastplate. Twisted to Innoruuks foul will. Must be retrieved and cleansed else my soul is to wander for all time.'

You say, 'What sword?'

Irak Altil says 'Hands of a twisted brother no longer living.'

You say, 'What shield?'

Irak Altil says 'Earthly children of the god of hate. Keeping stand over his dark brothers and sisters.'

You say, 'What breastplate?'

Irak Altil lets loose an unearthly howl as it gleams with sickly light. 'Upon she who lured me from my post. In that place where hatred festers. Painful corruption.'

You say, 'How can they be cleansed?'

Irak Altil says 'The sword must be dipped in water pure. Light of clean spirit to cleanse the shield. A gem of clarity unlike any other for the breastplate. All must be cleansed and returned to the temple for my soul to be freed. Only the temple can cleanse, only they can touch the artifacts. Take the sets of two to the temple. When they are all three cleansed separately take them to him who will grant me atonement.'

Reklon Gnallen

Your clue is the key word "atonement." Find Reklon Gnallen in the Temple of Quellious in Erudin.

You say, 'Hail, Reklon Gnallen'

Reklon Gnallen says 'Hail to you friend. Seek you knowledge or atonement in this temple of peace?'

You say, 'I seek atonement'

Reklon Gnallen says 'Yes. Many are those who enter these halls seeking the forgiveness, the atonement of a god. By turning their spirit against whatever wrong they have committed they may be able to receive redemption in the eyes of their diety. Many seek such a thing, but few truly have the strength of spirit to attain it.'

You say, 'What temple of peace?'

Reklon Gnallen says 'Dedicated to the god of peace, Quellious, is this temple. It is here that her clerics and paladins pray and receive inspiration.'

You say, 'What paladins?'

Reklon Gnallen says 'As the clerics are the warm hand of healing, the paladins are the stalwart shield of protection, and in times of grave need the sharp sword of justice. To our post must we always remain vigilant else dishonor might befall us.'

You say, 'I wish to remain vigilant.'

Reklon Gnallen says 'To a paladin the upholding of his duty, or honor to his temple is foremost. To fail in his duty to stand at his assigned post in time of need is a great disgrace. Few are the paladins who have done so, and their spirits have been outcast from the god of peace.'

You say, 'What outcast?'

Reklon Gnallen says 'Harsh though it seems, a true paladin must always remain vigilant and dedicated to his cause. If he does not then he might find himself fallen from grace.'

You say, 'Who has fallen from grace?'

Reklon Gnallen says 'There are a few who have done so. Only a few that come to mind. Such stories are useful to remember as reminders of our beliefs.'

You say, 'What stories?'

Reklon Gnallen says 'One is the story of the paladin who fell due to his weakness in the duty of his guard post.'

No prompts here seem to lead to further text.

Intermediate dialogue needed.

You say, 'what peasant woman?'

Reklon Gnallen says 'Many hundreds of years ago did this story begin. There was a paladin, whose name is lost to all but our oldest leaders, who was among the greatest examples of honor. It was his post to guard the chambers to our most important halls. His fall was a creature in the guise of a poor peasant woman.'

No other prompts seemed to move this along.


Tainted and Gleaming Items

Remember, Irak Altil said, "Only the temple can cleanse, only they can touch the artifacts. Take the sets of two to the temple. When they are all three cleansed separately take them to he who will grant me atonement."

Irak Altil failed his duty as a guard for the Paladins of Quellious and was cast out from his Temple. To release him from exile, you need to obtain, purify and return a tainted darksteel sword, shield and breastplate.

What Irak means is that only the Temple of Quellious in Erudin, to which he once belonged, can cleanse the artifacts. (Despite this, one of the artifacts is cleansed by Tunare's temple in Felwithe.) The sets of 2 that he speaks of are the set of the sword and pure water, and the set of the breastplate and pure crystal. The third "set" is the shield and the spirit of Elia the Pure.


The Breastplate

Tainted Darksteel Breastplate

Remember, Irak Altil said, "Upon she who lured me from my post. In that place where hatred festers. Painful corruption.' ... 'A gem of clarity unlike any other for the breastplate.'"

The Tainted Darksteel Breastplate drops from the Thought Destroyer in the Plane of Hate. It identifies as "glowing sickly green."


Pure Crystal

The "gem of clarity" is called a Pure Crystal, and is obtained via a sub-quest in Kaladim. In the mines (take a right as you go in, across a bridge), find Jark:

You say, 'Hail, Jark'

He doesn't respond to hails. He does have two emotes, however.

Jark strikes the wall with his pick. A dull clang sounds throughout the cave. 'Arrr. Nothin' here either.'

...and...

Jark strikes the wall with his pick. A clacking sound echoes through the cave. 'Har har. There's something all right.'

You say, 'Did you find something?'

Jark says 'Huh? Oh, I struck me some silver. Ain't gonna make me rich but it'll sure pay for me minin' costs. Speakin of, that wife o' mine was supposed ta bring me food already. Hey, you, wanna go get me my dinner? I ain't got nothing ta pay ya with but I sure would appreciate it.'

You say, 'I will get your dinner'

Jark says 'Har, I know you were a good sort. Nella has it. She's out there somewhere in the lower areas. She likes to visit the temple, so maybe she's there. Just tell 'er Jark sent ya and she'll prolly have everythin' ready fer me.'

Nella Stonebraids may be found in the temple area, by the small pool of water across from the door to the cleric guild, at +675, +115. She is spawned by talking to Jark.

You say, 'Hail, Nella Stonebraids'

She doesn't respond to hails.

You say, 'Do you have Jark's dinner?'

Nella Stonebraids says 'Ach! I forgot me husband's dinner. I'm so sorry. I was sendin' my wishes ta Brell for health and long life. I was just floatin' coins into the wishin' pool. Usually it's for children but things haven't been so good lately. Here, please take this to him and tell him where I was.'

You receive a "cold plate of beef and bread," which identifies as "Jark's dinner." Take this back to him.

Jark says 'Har, har! No time fer eatin' now! While you were gone I struck me a rich vein. Lookie here! Ya ever seen a gem so pure? It's tiny but clear as glass. Ya take it, ______. Ya showed me some kindness, least I can do. Besides, still a share here for me.'

You receive a Pure Crystal, which identifies as "blessed by compassion."

Gleaming Crested Breastplate

Go back to Reklon Gnallen and give him the Tainted Darksteel Breastplate and Pure Crystal.

Reklon Gnallen presses the gem of purity against the breastplate. Its dark gleam softens and then glows bright once again. 'Compassion is strong in you. Few so called heroes would sacrifice their time for such a menial task as you performed. Continue your work. Hold this ancient breastplate until you have completed your task.'

You receive a Gleaming Crested Breastplate, which identifies as "glowing with a bright light."

The Sword

Remember, Irak Altil said, "Hands of a twisted brother no longer living. The sword must be dipped in water pure."

Tainted Darksteel Sword

The Tainted Darksteel Sword drops from the Keeper of the Tombs in the Ruins of Old Paineel, a.k.a. The Hole. It identifies as "glowing sickly green."

Bucket of Pure Water

The "water pure" comes from doing a sub-quest of helping a peasant woman give some water to her sick brother. The peasant woman is located at +140, -545 in East Freeport post-revamp. She doesn't respond to hails, but has an emote:

peasant woman grunts as she tries to fill two buckets of water. Her frail arms strain at her work and pain fills her eyes with tears.

You say, 'What water?'

peasant woman says 'Aye, water, m'lord. For my brother. He is very sick. He's needin' drink. Hes burnin' up. I am sick myself but still able to move, a little. I must get this water to him before he gets worse.'

You say, 'I will take it to him'

peasant woman looks at you. 'Surely you are a pure soul. If you would take this bucket of water to my brother, I would be forever grateful. I'm just so tired, I need to rest...' She slumps to the floor and begins to breathe shallowly, in short, harsh gasps.

You receive a Bucket of Water, which identifies as "bucket of aqueduct water." Post-revamp, her brother Joshua is located elsewhere in East Freeport near the entrance to the sewers at -35, -470. Give him the bucket.

Joshua dips his emaciated hand into the bucket and brings the water to his mouth. As he does, you hear a soft thump from outside and notice that through the window his sister has collapsed. A glimmer enfolds her body, and you notice the water in Joshua's hand gleam a pure, bright light for a moment. 'Thank you, sir. I hope my sister returns soon. I feel better for some reason.'

You receive a Bucket of Pure Water, which identifies as "blessed by sacrifice."

Gleaming Crested Sword

Give the Tainted Darksteel Sword and the Bucket of Pure Water to Reklon Gnallen.

Reklon Gnallen washes the sword's blade in the water of purity. Its dark surface begins to shine, as true as the day it was forged. 'Such a sacrifice is rare among the poor. Truly, the woman must have loved her brother. Remember the lesson you have learned from her. Keep the sword until your work is done.'

You receive a Gleaming Crested Sword, which identifies as "glowing with a bright light."

The Shield

Remember, Irak Altil said, "Earthly children of the god of hate. Keeping stand over his dark brothers and sisters. Light of clean spirit to cleanse the shield."

Tainted Darksteel Shield

The Tainted Darksteel Shield drops from Kirak Vil in Nektulos Forest. It identifies as "glowing sickly green."

Light of Clean Spirit

The "light of clean spirit" isn't an object, unlike the other two items. Rather, it's the literal "clean spirit" of Elia the Pure in Felwithe. She is by the water just before you enter the inner city zone.

You say, 'Hail, Elia the Pure'

Elia the Pure says 'Hail to you, friend. If you require assistance, please ask, if not I must return to my tasks.'

You say, 'What tasks?'

Elia the Pure says 'It is here that the light shines brightest in our fair city. Here I sit, transcribing scrolls of luminescence. Spells to light the dark, to blind the evil with purity, or to heal those in pain. I find it so much easier to work with such spells if I am in the light itself.'

You say, 'What purity?'

Elia the Pure says 'Cleansing and such. Often our temple will cleanse evil. If you have need of such a thing, I can help. Merely let me examine the item.'

Gleaming Crested Shield

Give her the Tainted Darksteel Shield.

Elia the Pure squints and turns her head. 'By the gods, such a twisted aura this has! To see it hurts my eyes. I will help you if for no other reason than to remove such a twisted thing from existence.' She unrolls a scroll from her pack and softly chants over the dark metal shield. She hands it back to you with an exhausted smile on her face. 'Your heart seems pure. If I was able to help at all, I am honored. May the light shine warmly upon you.'

You receive the Gleaming Crested Shield, which identifies as "glowing with a bright light."


Final Steps

Mark of Atonement

Return to Reklon Gnallen. Hand him the Gleaming Crested Breastplate, Gleaming Crested Sword, and Gleaming Crested Shield.

Reklon Gnallen says 'I never thought our order would see these artifacts again. With the return of these relics we can now put at ease a scar upon the history of our order. This cleansing will atone for his failure. Your soul must be pure to have given so freely of yourself. Go now, take this crested token of our order. If you wish to free his soul you must undertake another sacrifice.'

You receive a Mark of Atonement, which identifies as "Mark of Peace."

You say, 'What sacrifice?'

Reklon Gnallen says 'Only this crest and the sacrifice of something that symbolizes your strength and purity will release his spirit into the cleansing flames of our lady Quellious. Go now.'

Freeing Irak

When Reklon mentions "something that symbolizes your strength and purity," he is in fact referring to the Fiery Avenger. The last step is to turn in the Mark of Atonement and the Fiery Avenger to Irak Altil in Fear. Turn in the two items together. Irak will then give you your new Fiery Defender.

Irak Altil screams so loudly it echoes across the valley as the mark and flames of your holy sword touch his rotted bones. As his body twists he quiets and then speaks. 'Your selflessness has made it possible to redeem my honor. With the cleansing of my corruption your own soul has been strengthened. Your power comes from your devotion to your god and with this you have been rewarded. Remember always your purity, devotion, and why you have sacrificed. I must go now to sacrifice myself upon the spear of pain.'

You receive your Fiery Defender!

Kirak Vil wanders from and to Neriak all the time. There are some rocks near that are perfect for an ambush if you are afraid having trouble with Neriak guards.

Hi,

We are helping a friend do his Pally 1.0 Epic and we went with him to Freeport but Kalatrina Plossen tells him, "Leave my presence at once. Your ways of life are not acceptable to one who follows the Truthbringer." When conned she is apprehensive to him. On my Barbi Shaman she is indifferent same with my Barbi Zerker hubby.

Is there anything my friend can do to improve his faction so she will talk to him and he can continue on his quest??

Thank you in advance for any advice or suggestions. All will be appreciated :o)

Can fix that reputation in multiple ways, here are a few -

First - you can turn in rat ears to Rephas in Qeynos Hills - about 20 stacks should take you from apprehensive and well into ally.

Second - You can kill lots of freeport guards, loot and turn in the helmets.

Third - Since you have to kill him anyway for the Zimel's Blades (SoulFire) quest, kill Sir Lucan D'Lere in both forms and loot the Testament he drops, then turn that in. This one is by far the largest faction hit out of any of them, killing him in both forms once should bring you to at LEAST amiable from apprehensive.

Note - each one of these methods will absolutely destroy your reputation with the Freeport Guards.

Luckily, the other half of the reputation you need for the SoulFire quest (I'm assuming that's the one you're starting with, since you mentioned Kalatrina Plossen) is quite easy to get as well, just turn in 2 gold at a time to Lashun Novashine in North Qeynos until he's warmly to ally.

On Luclin Server,

Irak was killed in PoFear @ around 3am this morning. Spawned around 7:40ish PM tonight, so it is a 17-18 hour respawn. Did turn in and now I am a happy paladin.

Turn in also gives you the title of "Lightbringer."

Good luck to any pallies out there still doing it. It's worth it.

Did this finally after seeing all the stuff rot in the bank for many years. Didnt make sense to do this even after OOW came out becaus of the time sink for books was still greater than the day or so it took me to do the workaround. Since then I have gotten my 1.5 and 2.0 but really just wanted to get this done.

Guildie helped me as he had the Frost book of which he MQ'ed for me and walked through the rest. Bittersweet/anticlimatic but hey - it's done :)

I was wondering if anyone could tell me if I need to complete Epic 1.0 to do 1.5 and 2.0. From what i've been hearing, 1.0 isn't worth going after, but I would like to do the 1.5 and 2.0 eventually.

Hi all:

So if any of your were like me and screwed up your Cleric of Tunare faction by participating in a Plane of Growth raid, then I feel your pain. There are several things people have said you can do, Like turning in muffins, Bat wings, etc.. None of those will work since all the people you need to turn them into Hate your guts. So what you do is go to Neriak Third gate. Zone in and Kill the 5 Guards in that area. There is a Roamer walking around the parimeter and 2 at the bridge. There is also 2 inside the cleric guild area that path around. The have about a 20 minute spawn timer. A 60+ Paladin can kill them solo easily. You have to kill all 5 about 100 times. Elia the Pure will then be Dubious to you and allow you to get near here to turn in the shield.

It is not fun, it took me months of doing it late at night while I played other games to keep me busy, but it does work.

Good luck

He has no guard placeholder whatsoever.

He's on a 7 day spawn timer and, when he's up, will roam from just south of wizard spires to swimming in the water just next to bridge.

I've killed him three times, once for myself and twice for pally friends. All three times he was already up.

On a side note, after he becomes KoS after a pally says "I am a paladin" zoning doesn't reset him. He remains KoS and attackable even after the pally zones.

Just would like to clarify, now that they have revamped Nektulos, Kirak Vil is non-aggro unless a paladin says, "I am a paladin" to him.

Edit: As a side note, any paladins on the FV server should be in a raid formation to kill Kirak, he is currently trivialing even though he is dark blue >.<

Epic finished, happy paladin alt.

Just handed the 2 items to him, no hailing.

I got no title for completion. I even hailed the guy in PoK and he gave the right text... but still no title. I petitioned it. But whatever, I got the sword. It's finishing the quest that counts.

I started my epic in Dec 01..didnt finish until Jan 05. Wasnt in anykind of rush until 1.5 came out. The hard part was trying to get the book of scale...i was lucky enuff to buy a copy for 10k pp. the rest was somewhat easy. 3 group the trip into the Hole (easy that..those mobs are no joke..even at 70) and took an mini raid into Plane of Fear.

With Irak in PoFear...kill ALL the mobs around him! Dont hail him! Just do your turn in!!! if you hail him....all the mobs in the area WILL agro on him...if he fights..you have to wait a few days to try turn in again.

The stats arent much nowadays..but the Fiery Defender has the most beautiful of weapon graphics...next to LMM and Lord Seru's swords

If the turn in is for Irak in Fear. All you need is a tracker, take a druid with you. Most of the mobs should be easy to clear. Just avoid the HT mobs. If you should get into any trouble, druid can evac.

Just finished this epic on the Tholuxe paells server. I will tell you that if you like a good challenge and have the time to spend, this quest can be a lot of fun. I would like to verify that you are able to use BASH with this weapon and that the faction work is VERY important. I was not max ally, but was on ally faction with the deepwater knights before I attempted the turn-in with Inte Akera. I would also like to note that anybody who wants to fix their faction in Freeport, that it IS possible. I killed Lucan and all the other freeport guards around him Twice. The inert potion quest does work and there is a good write up at http://balkin.freewebspace.com/catalog.html I had to fix my coaliton of tradefolk underground faction in order to get the quest, and once I did, I followed the instructions in the post, did the quest about 2500 times, and I'm now indifferent with the freeport militia, and max ally with the merchants of freeport. Also, you receive a new title of Lightbringer when u complete the quest. Yeah, there are much better weapons dropped since the newer expansions have came out, but it's a great feeling to finish epic 1.0 and to be able to get 1.5 without having to do the side-quest to get it. Note: I did the ghoulbane and soulfire quests at level 40-46 and spent 2 months or so at level 52 in order to get the books off of Nagy and Vox. Got a burnt book to drop even though somebody sent me a tell in pok two days earlier and was able to MQ the book for me. Seems there are a few people with books rotting in their banks. Might consider asking around if you are having problems getting the books to drop unless you really like killing nagy and vox Like I did.

As a weapon to use? no its not worth getting. For fun? no its not worth getting-while im all for quests, after all it is an RPG, the e pic quests are terrible, they arent in the slightest bit fun-the reason for this is because the quests were made 'epic' by putting stupid spawn times on mobs and rare drop rates.

So why would you do it? It looks good so you may like to flash it around, it is an epic and so while the quest is crap you will feel great once completeing it, you get a new title available to you if you do epic. But the biggest reason to do it is so that you can work on epic1.5

Took over 3 years of here-and-there effort. Last part was to tag along on pickup raid int Fear. Found Irak Altil simply standing alone by the Fallen Bell. Did quick turnin of FA and without hailing, conning, or anything. Yes there are better weapons in the Bazaar and I wield them for actual groups/raids. But I simply wanted the Epic.

Does the trip to Fear absolutely have to be made before you can purify the items? I have two of the three but they were difficult enough to obtain that I'd hate to lose them by not completing a step in order.

As a 65 Lord Protector, who has spent four years questing this, I have something to say on this weapon....

It is a decent weapon. For a 4year old weapon, it is pretty nice. Compared to weapons available today, it has limited uses. Current weapons have better damage, better ratios, faster speed, better stats, and better procs.

The job of a pally is to keep your targets attention on you. Even though the stun doesnt affect mobs over level 55, the attempted stun still goes off, and it is a nice extra hate generating proc. If you are fighting mobs 55 or below, it will stun them. The stun goes off a lot, so for that it is ok. The ratio and delay are cruddy, by today's standard. The resists are decent. The ability to BASH with out a shield while using this, is also a plus.

I started my epic quest when the quest was new, and only a few had been quested. I completed my quest even before the announcement of 1.5 and 2.0 epics, as a matter of pride. For the amount of help needed, bottleneck mob rare drops needed, raid forces needed, and LONG repop timers on contested mobs......it is NOT worth it. It's just not that good of a weapon.

HOWEVER, if you are into the accomplishment part, it is a satisfying feeling to finally have completed it. But it's not that satisfying. Considering I already had a windblade for riposte mobs, a BhBb (35/30vs undeads) for vs undeads, and a 34/28 weapon as my normal blade of choice, it was kind of a let down, by the time I finally got mine.

I augmented mine with guard2 augment, for 5%damage mitigation, to make it a decent all around blade, although the dps on this weapon blows, compared to what else I already had. It does work well on lower level stuff, with teh bash + stun, but against 56+mobs, it stays in my backpack, keeping me warm.
I usually have it out for show, for non battle times.

So: if you are after it for use as your weapon, I would say don't bother. I had to kill Vox 11 times before I the book ever was dropped, and every pally there was also rolling on it. Save your money, and buy a better weapon. Or quest a Natures Defender if you are a Tunare Worshipper. Very similar stats, and can be quested in a week, easily, with just a few friends. I have both.

Hope this helps you with your decision.

To be honest if damage and stats are what you are after in the EQ of today just go to the bazaar and pick up a better 2hs until you get a good no drop one.

If you like doing quests and want it as a status symbol by all means do it. I happened to loot the books one day and decided to do it for my paladin.

There are a couple things to remember about epics and many bitter people tend to not say this. They are very old and this sword was designed for people that already had FA. Sadly they all haven't aged as well as others (Ragebringer).

In my opinion the answer to your question would be do it for fun because if you can't buy a better sword now you'll get one easily in the future.

The new spawn location for Keeper of the tombs is about -174, 230... you need a key 'a sacred key' to get in there. It is droppable and is sometimes in bazaar. I did this with 1 group. 53 pally, 55 shaman, 65 pally, 65 druid, 65 cleric, 65 enchanter.

Ok Ive looked over the Pally epic many times and it just straight up blows. Other classes epics are really nice like a clerics 96% mana free rez SoE needs to update Pally epic. Not very many Pallys get it nowadays so many different and better weapons out there now that the epic is a waste of time. Im a lvl 61 Pally on Lanys tyvl and I think Ive only seen 1 Pally have his epic and thats because hes been playin for a very very long time. Its way too much work to just get a weapon that just does 155 DD and stuns for 1.5 seconds. Cmon thats soooo weak. I think if enough Pallys petitioned they would change the Pally epic to better than what it is.


I prolly will never do the epic for a Pally but if any of you other Pallys think its worth all the time and effort be my guest I wont get in your way. all the power to you. well Ive said enough. GL all you Pallys who think this is worth it.

No you don't need epic one to get epic two, but according to SOE, having the first one cuts down on the amount of work for epic 2.0

The Paladin epic is a Kunark-era weapon. Of course it's going to be outdated compared to the equipment of later expansions.

The only drawback to epics like this were that they had little or no future use beyond Kunark/Velious (unlike the Cleric epic or epics with inherent Haste, or free DoTs) for the effort required. I'm pretty sure this was something the developers weren't even considering upon the formulation of the epics but back then, these were top-notch weapons.

she gaves me the bucket, wich i gave her brother in the bakery... just the next house and finished so this part of quest!

Running out of freeport with J-Boots or SoW will bring you safety to the PoK-book!

Nella was there after I told Jark I would get his dinner. Prior to that she was in the kitchen fixing it I guess because I could not find her. What aggervates me is that Jark will not respond to a hail, nor would the peasant woman. If it was not for this spoiler, I would not have been able to complete this part yet.

Correction - When you go to Jark, He won't respond to hail, and "/say some" will not work. You have to "/say something" and that will begin dialog. Once dialog is started, THEN his wife spawns.

This is to confirm that today's patch fixed the Plane of Hate epic drop for Paladins. Had a 65 Ranger with us. The Thought Destroyer was on track when we entered the zone (only our group there.) Tracked and killed the destroyer near the steps. Got the Tainted Darksteel Breastplate on the first try.

Given that mob was up when we entered the zone, I'm not sure what made it spawn. Could be that it's now a regular spawn rather than a re-spawn off a kill.

Can someone confirm that the Tainted Darksteel Breastplate has dropped in the Plane of Hate after the zone revamp?

After five raids in Hate comprising about 30 hours of real time, I've yet to see any sign of the Paladin epic drop there. There was at least one Ranger (and usually two) checking track during each session. We've killed lots of Scorn Banshees, but have yet to see any sign of a Thought Destroyer.

We've /ooc asked other people hunting in Hate, particularly when there was a large raid in the zone. Have also asked on the serverwide paladin channel (/join serverwide.paladins:paladins).

Can someone confirm that the Paladin epic quest item has dropped in Hate subsequent to the zone's revamp?
