Full Walkthrough

Speak to Telin Darkforest in the Burning Woods. He is located near the Skyfire zone. If your faction isn't high enough with him (halflings don't start with enough faction), you'll need to improve it. An easy way to raise faction is by completing the Muffin for Pandos quest (a bunch of times).

You say, 'Hail, Telin Darkforest'

Telin Darkforest looks at you serenely. 'Hello, wanderer.'

You say, 'What are you doing in this forest?'

Telin Darkforest says 'Mighty this place must have been, once. Now scarred by hatred and suffering. I have been sent here seeking answers to problems not yet understood.

You say, 'What answers?'

Telin Darkforest considers you for a few moments before speaking. 'A great evil walks across the land. The hand of some demon we don't yet know is twisting and polluting forests.'

You say, 'What evil?'

Telin Darkforest says 'If I knew that, I wouldn't be here looking for answers. I would be elsewhere, looking for solutions. For now, I suspect much but know little.

You say, 'What do you suspect?'

Telin Darkforest looks at you and sighs. 'The lands are changing. Beasts, large and small, have turned upon those who watched over them. Druids and rangers, worshippers of both Karana and Tunare, have reported a feeling of hatred throughout their once peaceful lands.'

You say, 'Perhaps it is Innoruuk'

Telin Darkforest raises his eyebrow slightly and a subtle look of surprise creeps across his face. 'Innoruuk? Perhaps. Aye. It must be. Perhaps I knew and didn't want to consider the possibility. It must be this though, and some action will have to be taken.'

You say, 'What action should I take?'

Telin Darkforest looks at you consideringly and then scribbles something quickly on a small, worn paper. 'You seem powerful enough. Perhaps you can help those who seek to protect nature's peace. Take this note. Deliver it only into the hands of Faelin Bloodbriar. Where you will find her, I cannot say. She is a friend of mine and a wanderer. She has been seen from one end of the lands to the other. Seek her out, and quickly.'

Telin Darkforest gives you a "Worn Note" which you need to take to Faelin Bloodbriar in Greater Faydark.

Faelin roams around Greater Faydark and has an Orc Pawn as her PH. Their spawn point is at loc +1500, +500.


Faelin Bloodbriar reads the note carefully and growls to herself. 'Bad news, eh? Take this ring. There is one elf, dark elf even, who we must go to in order to gather insight into Innoruuk's plans. Giz X'Tin, he goes by most commonly. Kithacor seems to be his favorite haunt and most likely you will find him there. Don't ask how I know him. Just take the ring as my sign to him and he will speak to you. We don't need to speak again, so don't seek me out, just go to Telin. I must leave to investigate these events.'

Faelin Bloodbriar gives you "Faelins Ring" to take to take to Giz X'Tin, who is located in Kithicor Forest.

Giz X'Tin flips you a coin after he recognizes the ring. 'It seems we have a mutual 'acquaintance.' The coin repays an old debt. You don't have to worry about what that is. Luckily, Lord Innoruuk has informed me of your coming and your desires. Fortunately, I have all the answers you require right here at the end of my friend's blade. I think I'll be paying my old 'friend' a visit.'

Teir`Dal Reaver says 'Lord Innoruuk, I have failed you. Forgive me and spare me from service to your undead minions in the world!

Giz X'Tin gives you a "Dark Metal Coin."

A Teir`Dal Reaver will spawn when you get the Dark Metal Coin however you do not need to kill it.

Head back to the Burning Woods and give the coin to Telin.


Telin Darkforest scratches the coin as he looks at it. 'Faelin sent you to Giz? Surprising. This coin speaks to the outcome of your talk. He would hardly give this bit of metal to a stranger, but that's a story for a different time. So, you say Giz did confirm Innoruuk's involvement, and something about undead minions? Here, take this coin back. Find Arch Druid Althele in the Karanas and show her that. Tell her what we have discussed. She will look kindly on an ally in this matter.'

Telin Darkforest gives you a "Worn Dark Metal Coin" to take to Althele in East Karana.

You say, 'Hail, Althele'

Althele says 'Hello, friend. Beautiful is what I would call such a day normally, but lately? I sense that something is [out of balance].'

You say, 'Out of balance?'

Althele says 'I sense something foreboding, young one, but you should think nothing of it. The sons and daughters of nature will be able to deal with this problem.'

Give the coin to Althele.

Althele looks at the coin and nods gravely at you as she slips it into a fold of her clothing. 'I see. The story of this coin speaks much to me as do the words you have given me. Telin sent word that you would arrive. The tidings you bring are ill indeed. Here, take this amulet and find Sionae. She is nearby. We will speak more on this matter when all are present.'

Althele gives you a "Braided Grass Amulet" to take to Sionae.

You say, 'Hail, Tholris'

Tholris stares in contemplation at the landscape.

Althele says 'Tholris does not speak much. He is here to assist me in my duties. He is my hands, as Fang is my eyes.

Fang barks in response to Althele's words.

You say, 'Why do you need him as your hands and Fang as your eyes?'

Althele says 'Yes. I cannot see any longer, my sight long since lost in the march of years. By the blessings of Tunare and Karana, though, I still make myself useful.

Sionae spawns after you get the Braided Grass Amulet.

Give the amulet to Sionae.


Sionae says 'I see that the time has come. Take the amulet and give it to the third of our kin, Nuien. I will meet you at the gathering.

Sionae gives you a "Frayed Braided Grass Amulet" to take to Nuien.

Give the amulet to Nuien.


Nuien says 'So be it. Do as you have done before and find the next. Teloa is the last.

Nuien gives the "Frayed Braided Grass Amulet" back to you, and Teloa spawns near the waterfall.

Give the amulet to Teloa.


Teloa begins walking toward the gathering spot. 'Follow me to the gathering now.'

Follow Teloa back to where Althele is, which is where the druids are gathering. You will not have the amulet at this point as she does not return it to you.

Althele says 'Great mother of life and father of sky, growth and spirit, Tunare and Karana. Innoruuk once again schemes and we have failed in our duties to protect our land. We give our powers in sacrifice for your help. Heed our call and send us your wisdom.
Althele snaps her head towards you. 'Innoruuk's brood is upon us. Go, find the spawn of hatred before they reach this point and destroy them!'

Dark Elf Corruptor and two Dark Elf Reavers spawn. You need only the Corruptor and loot the Fleshbound Tome.

Dark Elf Corruptor shouts 'We come for you, fools. Your reign of weakness over the powers of the land comes to an end now!

It is not necessary to kill the two Reavers but if you don't, they'll wander to the druids and kill them. Allowing this to happen will waste your time, as you need to hand the "Fleshbound Tome" you looted off the Corruptor into Althele.

Althele hands the book to Tholris who reads through it with lines of concern etched on his face, then whispers into her ear. 'Dire news, indeed. This cannot be allowed. I must keep this book but you must not allow Innoruuk, to seed the land with his hatred and filth. You have only just begun your quest. The path you are guided upon will be difficult, if not impossible, but someone must finish it. Please, take this, read of it, follow its instructions. Tunare bless your path and Karana watch over you.'

Althele gives you the "Earth Stained Note" and then despawns. She will respawn 35 minutes later.

'We cannot speak again. Our circle is now known and must seek sanctuary. In case this note were to fall into others' hands. I cannot tell you plainly the next steps of your task. All I can say is to seek she who walks the path of the mother, she who walks the lands in service to her kin. Give her this note and she will know.'

Head to Misty Thicket and find Ella Foodcrafter. She wanders the path near Rivervale and won't be hard to track down.

You say, 'Hail, Ella Foodcrafter'

Ella Foodcrafter says 'Hi, hi. I've got a lot to do, many mouths to feed, some filthy goblins to smack. If you don't need me for something, please let me go back to my work. Karana watch over you.'

Give the Earth Stained Note to her.

Ella Foodcrafter says 'Hmmm. I've been waiting for someone to bring me this. I'm sorry such a young one as you has taken up this task. Maybe the sky god blesses ya though. Aye, ya have that look in your eye. Our task is to focus the blessings of the gods and cleanse the filth from the land. I have two tasks for ya.'

You say, 'What two tasks?'

Ella Foodcrafter says 'Well, ya ask before ya act. That's a good sign. What I need isn't easy to find. First, I need a mixture. Plain sounding enough but it's a special one. Cleanses the mind and focuses the earth's energies into a forest walker's mind. I don't know how to make it. I don't even know what it's called. I merely know it exists and we'll be needing it for our task. When ya do find how to make it ya can mix it in that bowl. Keep it when you're done, it's a good bowl.'

Ella Foodcrafter gives you a "Shiny Tin Bowl" which identifies as Ellas Reflective Tin Bowl to create the Hardened Mixture.

You say, 'What is the second task?'

Ella Foodcrafter grins. 'Good, ya didn't run off without finding out what else ya need to do. Second, I need a special type of bowl. An ancient type of bowl, which strengthened the food placed inside it, once made by the elves of old. Again, I cannot tell ya how it is made for the making was lost to the ages. Seek this knowledge and these items out in the lands. Come to me when ya have found both.'

Now, you will need to forage:

Chilled Tundra Root in Everfrost.
Ripened Heartfruit in Greater Faydark.
Speckled Molded Mushroom in Innothule Swamp.
Sweetened Mudroot in Misty Thicket.

Combine these four items in the Shiny Tin Bowl to get a "Hardened Mixture." Don't destroy the tin bowl, as you'll need it later in the quest.

Seek out Alrik Farsight who roams near the chessboard in Timorous Deep. He is on Keepers of the Art faction. You will need to be at least amiable to him in order for him to speak to you. It may be raised by doing a bat wing turn in quest described here.


You say, 'I seek an ancient type of bowl made by the elves of old.'

Alrik Farsight rummages through his tattered bag and throws aside a towel. 'Too many towels. Oh well, someone told me they were good to have once. Here it is, a bowl pattern. Interesting bowl. Looks almost like a magical bowl but I'm no potter. You need it, you say? Well, it is interesting. Part of my research here is for the wizard guild in Felwithe. I'm sure they'd put a high price on this one, the enchanters guild being so interested in trading for magical paraphernalia and all. Of course if you helped me out on a chore I have, I'd be happy to give it to you. I need to deliver an artifact to the guild and I'd much rather stay here exploring. If you wish, you can take the artifact and return with the receipt and I will give you the pattern.'

You say, 'I will take the artifact.'

Alrik Farsight says 'Hah! Okay then. Here take this to Farios Elianos in Felwithe. He will give you the Receipt.

Alrik Farsight gives you "Crushed Pot" to give to Farios Elianos in Southern Felwithe.

Farios Elianos says, 'Why in the nine hells would I need a crushed pot? Perhaps I could use it to not hold water! Why did you even bother me with this? Are you mentally deficient? Apparently. Oh, well, you're just a servant boy. Well, then, we'll make you useful, if just a little. Take this shopping list and go get my groceries. Take it to Nora in the tavern. She'll know what I need.'

Farios Elianos gives you a "Grocery List" to give to Merchant Nora.

Merchant Nora says 'You hardly look like the type of errand runner Farios usually sends out to fetch his groceries but here they are. I hope he chokes on them. Oh, and tell him he still owes me five gold for his last order!

Merchant Nora gives you a "Bag of Provisions" to take to Farios Elianos.

Take the bag of Provisions back to Farios Elianos and give it to him.


Farios Elianos says 'Ah, good. Here's a few copper and a receipt for services rendered. Now be off, I'm sure citizens across the land are in dire need of broken pots at right this moment.

Farios Elianos gives you a "Receipt" to take to Alrik Farsight.

Go back to Alrik Farsight and give him the Receipt.


Alrik Farsight grins happily. 'Excellent! Was he pleased with the artifact? Oh, that's not even worth answering. I'm sure he was. He's always happy with the things I send him. That's why he honored me with this position of esteem, searching for useful and powerful items in this newly discovered land.'

You receive an "Ancient Pattern."

Go to Firiona Vie in Kunark and forage a "Rose of Firiona."

Now head to Merdan Fleetfoot in Surefall Glade:


You say, 'Hail, Merdan Fleetfoot'

Merdan Fleetfoot says 'Yes Niera! Oh. Erm. Hi. I mean, uh. How are you?'

You say, 'Who is Niera?'

Merdan Fleetfoot blushes. 'She is, uh.. I don't know. I haven't been able to speak with her. She has many suitors, and I'm just another poor ranger. I spend my days here pretending to fish, to carve bows, but really I'm just waiting to catch a glimpse of her. I thought about adventuring into the world to find some kind of token to give her, to show her how I feel, but I cant tear myself away from here.'

Give Merdan Fleetfoot a Rose of Firiona.

Merdan Fleetfoot blinks and looks at the flower. 'This is perfect. Thank you! I'm going to go over to her now. Erm, well, maybe I'll wait a week to let the uh.. beauty of the flower.. uhm.. blossom. Yes, that sounds good. Here, you take this painting. I don't need it now. I made it myself, she wouldn't like it anyways.'

Merdan Fleetfoot gives you a "Wood Painting" to give to a Human Skeleton in Frontier Mountains.

a human skeleton begins to crack and disintegrate, its body collapsing into a pile of dust that scatters into the winds. On the ground you notice a locket on a fine, thin chain which you pick up ("Silver Chained Locket").

Head back to Surefall and give the locket to Niera Farbreeze and she will give you "Platinum Speckled Powder."

Niera Farbreeze says 'This, this is my mother's amulet. I cannot believe it. Please, take this powder you say you need. Perhaps it does have powers, I don't know, I don't care. Thank you, my eternal thanks for this.

Seek out Kinlo Strongarm in Kaladim.

You say, 'What mud?'

Kinlo Strongarm says 'Eh? Oh, the clay. Arrr. Lots o that mud round 'ere. Mostly, a good dwarf not be needin somethin so soft 'n squishy but the womenfolk, you know, the elves come lookin fer it. If ye be one o' those pansy elves wantin some mud fer workin into fairy statues, flashy trinkets, 'n pig sticker arrers then I can get it for ye. Course I'd be lowerin meself, a good dwarf, ta be diggin that kinda mush outta the ground, but I can do it fer ya.

You say, 'Do it for me.'

Kinlo Strongarm says 'Arrr. Shaddap. I ain't doin it til ya bring me something. A fee, I guess yed call it, fer lowerin meself ta elf woman work. Go get me a good strong axe and I'll do it fer ye. Mebbe somethin with a good tinted polish on it. I got plenty o' axes but no tinted ones. Har har! Colored axe. Something to go with the color left on the blade after I be crackin open a gobbo head.

He wants a Jade Reaver from the City of Mist.

Give Kinlo a Reaver, and he will give you Enchanted Clay.


Kinlo Strongarm says 'Arrrrr. Ooooo. Arrrrrr... Yah, now that's what I be callin a good lookin axe. I be crackin a few skulls with this one. Oh, here's yer block o' mud. Our priests o' Brell use the mud pit fer relievin themselves after really hard ale blessin ceremonies, so ya ain't got ta be enchantin it in holy water or anythin cause they already have. Har har!

Combine the Ancient Pattern, Enchanted Clay, and Platinum Speckled Powder in a Pottery Wheel to make a Runecrested Bowl, which identifies as "A meticulously decorated bowl." This requires no skill in pottery to do and any pottery wheel should work.

Head back to Misty Thicket and visit Ella Foodcrafter. Give her the Hardened Mixture and Runecrested Bowl.


Ella Foodcrafter smiles slowly as she works the mixture in the bowl and it starts to shine with power. 'This is... a piece of a lost magic item known as Nature's Gem. When restored to completeness I've heard its healing powers will be extraordinary. Take it now. I will take the bowl and hopefully do some good from my end. From here, you can go many ways but I can't guide your path step by step. The only advise I can give you is to look for ones such as yourself.'

Ella Foodcrafter gives you the "Softly Glowing Stone," which identifies as Left Half of Natures Balance.

Seek out Foloal Stormforest in Firiona Vie.


You say, 'Are you one such as myself?'

Foloal Stormforest stares at you and whispers. 'You must be the one that has been spoken of. Yes, yes I am one of the circle. There are many of us in the lands right now, all seeking answers to the ills that have befallen our homes.'

You say, 'What answers?'

Foloal Stormforest says 'I have heard whispers of new Iksar movements in the land. The name of Venril Sathir is on the scaled lips and sharp tongues of every cold blooded lizard in this place.'

You say, 'What about venril sathir?'

Foloal Stormforest says 'All I've heard are whispers of connections between the undead lizards and the dark god of hate. There's some kind of history behind the two. It might be that Venril is the main focus of Innoruuk's will in the land. Then again, maybe not, but this is the best we've gotten so far. If you think you can do it, then find him and remove him from the face of this earth. Bring me the half of the stone I know you have and whatever conduit of power you find on his rotting corpse.

Locate Venril Sathir's Remains in Karnor's Castle. VSR spawns about 24 hours after the real Venril Sathir is killed.

Venril Sathir's Remains says 'The living fire. I seek the fires of life. Bring them.

Use the spell Dance of the Fireflies to summon a Firefly Globe. Give Venril Sathirs remains the Firefly Globe, which causes the Spirit of Venril Sathir to spawn.

Venril Sathir's Remains grasps the glowing sphere of fireflies from your hands. Tendrils of mystical energy begin to flow forth from the swarm of glowing insects like tiny fingers. The glowing tendrils begin to reach into the ribcage of the rotting remains of Venril Sathir, coalescing into the form of an Iksar ghost.

You say, 'Hail, Spirit of Venril Sathir'

Spirit of Venril Sathir says 'So mortals, you seek to end the tainting of Tunare's children? So be it, I have no cares. My death has been caused by this foolishness and I want no more to do with it. Bring me a scroll with the knowledge of resurrection so that I may once again live. I will hand you that which you seek.

Give the Spirit of Venril Sathir the cleric version of the Spell: Resurrection scroll.

Spirit of Venril Sathir says 'I am alive! My thanks to you. And now I will aid you in your quest for preserving the forests of norrath. Your carcass will help nurture the soils of the wilderness.

Venril Sathir respawns. Kill Venril Sathir to get the "Pulsing Green Stone," which identifies as Pulsing with a sickly light. This version of Venril Sathir should be easier to kill as I have been told that he does not Lifetap. He will drop two Pulsing Green Stones and nothing else.

Head back to Firiona and hand Foloal Stormforest the Pulsing Green Stone and Softly Glowing Stone.


Foloal Stormforest blinks and carefully takes the stones from you, cautiously scratching the jagged green stone against the other. Its skin seems to shiver and flake at the contact and eventually begins to shine brightly. 'With the gem nature's balance is complete. Take the stone and walk your path. Blade or lightning caller, burning sword or the mother's walk.'

Foloal Stormforest gives you the "Warmly Glowing Stone," that identifies as Natures Balance Completed.

Head to the Burning Woods and give Telin Darkforest the Warmly Glowing Stone.


Telin Darkforest nods as he unbuckles his sword and hands it to you. 'The storm callers are working on containing and fighting against the corruption but they can not hold back the inevitable for long. It is up to us to strike against Innoruuk directly. If we were warriors or paladins we would have a fancy ceremony and plenty of feasting but we're just rangers, without time for pleasantries. The sword you hold in your hands is one of the oldest blades known, even to the eldest. To strike at the darkest heart of evil requires a weapon beyond this, or even ones you may carry at your side. The first task, the first preparation you must make is the smithing of that blade. Its edge sharpened, its balance made perfect. When you have finished, bring me this sword again.

Telin gives you an "Ancient Longsword," which identifies as a "Finely Crafted Longsword."

Head back to Kinlo Strongarm in Kaladim and ask him about the ancient.


You say, 'What ancient?'

Kinlo Strongarm says 'The ancient smiths, for what I think yer askin about, ain't been around fer a long time, laddy. Last anyone heard o' the ancients was 'fore my time even. There be more than a few tales about 'em.

You say, 'What few tales?'

Kinlo Strongarm says 'There be some who talk about how the ancient smiths went down to work fer the duke o' below, sayin he be needin some fine dwarven smiths fer makin some castle or some such. There be tales that the ancients were so good at smithin that the duke took 'em down and made 'em head smiths over his minions. There's even tales that some o the smiths' souls were trapped in their hammers, stuck there by some necromancer or somethin, as punishment or retribution.

You say, 'What hammers?'

Kinlo Strongarm says 'Aye. Some says their souls were bound into their hammers by an Erudite necromancer and enchanter. They say they used the power of the hammers ta profit by makin ships, boats, and houses better than any other merchants. Sad tale, if'n it be true.

You say, 'What Erudite necromancer?'

Kinlo Strongarm says 'I'm not knowin more about the story, lad. Everythin I know is already in what I said. Aye, Erudites. I suppose if yer wantin ta run after shortbeard tales ya can look over on that plague island they call Odus.

You say, 'What Erudite Enchanter?'

Kinlo Strongarm says 'I'm not knowing more about the story, lad. Everything I know is already in what I said. Aye, Erudites. I suppose if yer wantin ta run after shortbeard tales you can look over on that plagued island they call Odus.

Head to The Hole with a raid and make your way down toward Jaeil the Wretched. Jaeil is indifferent by default.

You say, 'Hail, Jaeil the Wretched'

Jaeil the Wretched whimpers pathetically as his reflection catches his eye. He turns and stares pitifully at the ceiling.

Jaeil the Wretched shields his eyes from his reflection in the water, occasionally gibbering as he scratches at a flapping, rotted patch of skin on his sunken face. In his arms he cradles something. He seems to emanate an aura of power.

Stand behind Jaeil the Wretched to make him indifferent to you, then give him the Shiny Tin Bowl so that he will see his reflection.

Jaeil the Wretched howls in anger, his body seeming to suck energy from the walls around him as he sees his reflection. He pulls a hammer from the bundle in his arms and swings fiercely at your head.

Jaeil the Insane spawns and attacks. Kill Jaeil the Insane and loot the "Soulbound Hammer," which identifies as Hammer of an ancient dwarf. Jaeil the Wretched used to remain there and could be chain triggered. Since the revamp of Old Paineel, he will poof once he receives the bowl.

Give the Soulbound Hammer to Kinlo Strongarm.


Kinlo Strongarm examines the hammer respectfully, admiring its craftsmanship. He strikes it against his anvil and winces as a howl fills the air. 'This is one of the ancients' hammers? I can almost, well, almost hear it callin ta me. It's strong, that's fer sure, lad. I don't know how ye got it, but aye, a dwarf could make a mighty blade with this. It's lookin like this thing still has its owner inside it though. I'm not knowin how, and not wantin to know, but fer yer own good ye better find some way ta get 'im out.'

Kinlo gives you back the "Soulbound Hammer," which identifies as Hammer of an ancient dwarf.

Off to Erudin Palace to find Mairee Silentone. Talk to her about an ancient hammer.


You say, 'What ancient hammer?'

Mairee Silentone says 'Yes, the ancient hammer. I heard something about that. Do you mind if I take a look at it?'

Give Mairee Silentone the "Soulbound Hammer," which identifies as Hammer of an ancient dwarf.

Mairee Silentone makes a few marks on the hammer, and all the while you can hear a muffled cursing coming from the hammer head. 'Yes, it is an ancient dwarf's hammer. Interesting artifact. I've marked it to keep it stable while you retrieve something for me. You need to travel to the Plane of Sky and find a swirling sphere of color. Bring it and the hammer back to me.'

Mairee Silentone gives you the "Dwarven Smiths Hammer," which identifies as Hammer of an ancient dwarf.

Head to Island Four of the Plane of Sky and kill an essence tamer which drops the Swirling Sphere of Color.

Give Mairee Silentone the Hammer and the Swirling Sphere of Color.


Mairee Silentone holds the sphere and makes intricate marks and patterns on it, eventually turning the entire crystal clear. She rolls it across the hammer, raising a ringing sound in the room. 'There. Now take the hammer back to Kinlo. He'll know what to do from here. Good luck to you .'

Mairee Silentone gives you the "Hammer of the Ancients," which identifies as Hammer of an ancient dwarf.

Back in Kaladim, hand Kinlo Strongarm the Hammer of the Ancients, which causes Usbak the Old to spawn.


Kinlo Strongarm looks at the hammer and nods once before slamming the head against his anvil, and shattering the head. In a cloud of dust, another dwarf appears from the cloud and tosses you a hunk of metal. Kinlo stares in awe.

Usbak the Old gives you "Small bit of Mithril Ore," which identifies as Small bit of Mithril Ore.

You say, 'Hail, Usbak the Old'

Usbak the Old says 'Took ya long enough! Ye'd think ya had an Orc head on them shoulders there. I'm owin' ya for yer help though. Else I'd have been on that darn hammer for ages. Ye said ya had an ancient blade or somethin ta be smithin. If so lemme see it.

Give Usbak the Old the Ancient Longsword and he gives you the "Refined Ancient Sword," which identifies as Sword to show Telin.

Usbak the Old admires the blade and then starts to bang the edge with a hammer. 'Hah, that was a good blade, no doubt. Ain't seen one I couldn't make better though. I'm knowin' yer cause and all I know is ye should take that ancient blade ta yer friend in the woods, he'll know what to do now. With that I'm gonna be takin muh leave. Debt paid and all. If'n yer wantin' another blade, which ye do, ye got enough ore left that Kinlo can do it for ye'

Usbak the Old despawns. Give the Small bit of Mithril Ore to Kinlo Stirngarm and he forges the "Refined Mithril Blade" for you.

Kinlo Strongarm says 'Erm. Well, I aint never worked with this stuff but here's what I got for ya. It ain't bad, pretty much like the one ye got there. I suppose ye should take the one the ancient made and show it ta yer friend.

Head to the Burning Woods again and give Telin Darkforest the Refined Ancient Sword. He returns the sword.

Telin Darkforest smiles slowly. 'Now that's fine work. Just a moment, we have a friend here who can enchant one of the blades. Give her the blade the ancient smithed.'

Faelin appears.

You say, 'Hail, Faelin'

Faelin says, 'Didn't think I was gone for good, did you? We're that much closer to finishing this trial of our strength, thanks to you.'

Give her the Refined Ancient Sword. She enchants it and returns it to you.

Faelin smiles at you, then closes her eyes as she sets the gem 'Nature's Balance' into the crossguard and begins to channel her spirit into the sword. The ground rumbles loudly as she casts. She collapses in exhaustion after a short time. 'Take the blade, and perhaps you can finish this. You must strike at Innoruuk's heart. Bring his shattered gem and the Mithril blade to Xanuusus. Only with Innoruuk's death can the balance of the land once again be restored. If we do not meet again, remember you always have my eternal thanks.'

This lands you the first half of the Ranger epic:

Head to the Plane of Hate in search of the "Shattered Emerald of Corruption." This item drops randomly off "mini bosses" (Grandmaster R'Tal, Coercer T'Vala, and Avatar of Abhorrance are confirmed) and frequently off Innoruuk himself.

Once you've obtained the emerald, find Xanuusus in North Karana.


You say, 'Hail, Xanuusus'

Xanuusus says 'Greetings, small one! I am Xanuusus of the Stormreapers. You are welcome to rest beneath my mighty branches.

Give Xanuusus the Refined Mithril Blade and the Shattered Emerald of Corruption.

Xanuusus waves his hands over the gem of corruption and a wave of warm energy passes through the area. With care for such a huge creature, he melds the gem into the sword and seems to glow all over as he channels energy into the weapon. 'Thus is the link of hate broken between Innoruuk and the spirit of earth. Through your will has balance returned. Your deeds, your work for the good of all, will be remembered by anyone who walks beneath the canopy of a forest or roams the plains. Continue your vigil over nature's balance.'

You now have the second half of your epic:

You should have a group camp at his spawn point (-1450, -950) and nuke him dead asap. The reavers will spawn nearby but leave you alone and make a beeline for the druids. You can ignore them, but the druids will despawn so you will have to wait about 40min before you can give the tome to Althele.

They pop when you give Althele the coin. When you hand them the necklace they walk to her. Sionae pops infront of you (if you are facing Althele, with the water at your back) Nuien to your left, and Teloa right (at the barbarian outpost)

Also, Althele has a 40 minute spawn time if you wish to do the quest multiple times.

So far from what I have read of the Quests that have already been completed (Shaman and Cleric) you have to kill a NPC so another one spawns to get the Quest going. Now my fellow brothers and sisters we run into that one big problem, who do we have to kill and where is he, she or it. Or maybe we don't even to have kill a NPC to get another to spawn. As I am only lvl 33 I don't feel I'll be able to complete this Quest any time soon, however I will be keeping an eye out for new names in zones of NPCs. If you all think I'm nutts let me know, but I think this may be a start we just need to find the right NPC.

When I went into Surefall Glade, my birthplace, I noticed two new people near the water fall. A guy on one side and a girl on the other who's names aren't in my head at the moment. The guy has a crush on the girl basically and wants to get her something but can't travel the lands of Norrath. I couldn't get him to say anything else plus the girl just would not talk. The guy stands near the dude that does the Gnasher quest behind the guild hall. If you look across the water from where this guy is standing you will see the girl. Possible connection with the Epic Quest or just another quest that they added for people to do...

Umm the druid epic quest isn't the ranger epic quest. The bowl is the rnager quest not the druid. Druid is currupted mobs i know this becuase i know basically the whole druid quest and can sum it up in one sentence. Kill 16 currupted mobs, hand in the correct currupted items to the correct 4 npcs, give the 4 items u get to a npc(no idea who) and u either get the mid way item or the epic qeapon. TaDa the lousy druid quest now lets take about the rnager one. Enchanted Clay is gotten in Kaladim in Ironforge building off a new npc who only responds to what mud. Give him a Jade axe and u get the item. Now what is the last item we need .......x.........iea.........Platinum Speklced Powder Enchanted Clay and this Elven Pattern.

Appearantly, there is a glowing meteor that can be foraged in the burning wood. Also, after giving the rose to ******* he speaks of going to a far across land to give Niera a token.

Certain information has been found about the bowl, yes.
But no one has, to my knowledge, accomplished the task to create (or receive from somewhere) the bowl.

This new information is regarding Timorous Deep and a certain magician named Alrik Farsight.
(In case you need faction to get him to talk, give Niola Impholder, the mage guildleader in Southern Felwithe, four batwings for KeepersOfTheArt faction. I heard it takes approximately 160 batwings from indifferent to amiable).

Alrik is apparently near or at the Chessboard in Timorous Deep. (For druids out there, use the spell Egress to get near him easily. Use track to find him.)

His /Location is approximately: -6000, +2800.
Here is a link to a Timorous Deep map:
http://www.eqatlas.com/kunark/timorousdeepmap.html

He gives a note which has missing letters, good luck deciphering it, I haven't been able to myself. You can find a picture of the note here:

Telin in BW not ranger and Surefall Neira maybe not
# Oct 01 2000 at 2:45 AM Rating: Default
Okay i'm a lvl 52 ranger,now for all you that think that the quest begins in BW explain something to me. I hailed Telin in BW and he said to me: You need to prove your dedication to our cause before i can discuss such matters with you. Okay so i decided to try asking him, What brings you to this forest? Which he replied: Come back when you have done more to futher our campaign.

To me this means that it's a faction thing, which being a ranger and having great faction with druids and of course my class, leads me to believe this is a druid or other quest NPC. Hope someone can explain or just say, yep your probably right it's not a ranger quest, which i didn't believe it was in the first place, but had to try what eveyone is talking about.

Also something to think about. What about Niera being the start to the bard quest? Since she beings to sing a tune. I dont' think that Verant is going to place the begining of the Ranger quest in the most obvious of places. Just a thought.

# Oct 01 2000 at 2:35 PM Rating: Default
Miro after some sleep. i am no longer "ready to attack: what would you like your tombstone to say"

Faction ranking is like this from best to worst:

+3, warmly
+2, kindly
+1, amiably
0, indifferently
-1, apprehensively
-2, dubiously
-3, threateningly
-4, ready to attack

Telin is a wood elf ranger and so he is on Faydark's Champions faction. Faydark's Champions is the wood elf ranger faction. To give you the quest you must /con warmly to Telin (although there are claims that "kindly" may be enough).
As far as i know, a character of any race and any class can get the quest from Telin if their faction with Faydark's Champions is good enough.

Just because you are a ranger does not mean that your faction with Faydark's Champions is sufficient. Especially if you are a human or half-elven ranger, you may not have done enough to get your faction with Faydark's Champions high enough to get the quest.

These are a few simple quests you can do to get your Faydark's Champions faction high enough to get the quest. The first 2 also do NOT raise your faction with Soldiers of Tunare (wood elf druid faction): that means you can see for yourself that Telin is a ranger and not a druid. Remember, your faction is not good enough to get the quest now, you raise your faction with Faydark's Champions without raising your faction with Soldiers of Tunare, you get the quest, you too have proof that Telin is a Ranger.

*Bat wings for Niola (Felwithe magician guild). fast and easy raises Faydark's Champions faction without changing Soldiers of Tunare faction. buy stacks from newbies and it is fast.

*Black Wolf skins for Tarker (Felwithe wizard guild). a bit tougher but still trivial. again raises ranger faction without raising druid faction.

* Muffins for Pandos (West Free): quick and easy BUT also raises your faction with Soldiers of Tunare so you won't be able to check that Telin is a ranger. But it gets you to the quest fast.

*Orc Hatchets for Dill (gfay): also quick and easy BUT like Muffins also raises your faction with Soldiers of Tunare.

i am cranky: the ancient bowl is nowhere to be found and i want to share some of my crankiness.

look, do your homework. the vast majority of the posts here are useless or misinformed or worse: yours is another.

Telin is on Faydark Champions faction. This was determined by a DRUID. Faydark Champions is the Kelethin (wood elf) RANGER faction. Telin is a wood elf RANGER.

The way this was determined is that the druid was ONLY kindly to both wood elf druid and wood elf ranger. The problem is that all simple wood elf druid faction-raising quests raise faction with Faydark Champions too. Fortunately, there are at least 3 quests that raise faction with Faydark's Champions without ALSO raising faction with wood-elf druids. The druid did these quests until he was WARMLY with Faydark's Champions. He confirmed that he was still only kindly with wood elf druids. Guess what? Yep, he was now WARMLY with Telin. QED: Telin is a RANGER.

Now, to your particular problem. Several possibilities come to mind quickly:

1) You are a human or half-elf ranger who hasn't raised their faction with Faydark Champions enough. Step one is to check your RACE: are ya a human or half-elf? Step two is /con the frikkin guildmaster in Kelethin: are you warmly or only kindly?

2) You screwed up by killing something you shouldn't have. One-step check: /con the frikkin ranger guildmaster in Kelethin.

thanks again,

one other thing:

well you say your faction with druids is "great": does that mean "warmly"?

IF your faction with druids is WARMLY then isn't that very very good evidence that Telin is NOT a druid? yes it is.

now, get your Faydark's Champions faction to warmly as well and you get the quest. make sense?

Kindly may not be good enough. I did the muffin quest in FP (had to run around camod as I'm kos). I was amiable before I did it. I filled 2 10-slot backpacks with muffins (got those from the vendors upstairs in the office of the people in NFP) and gave them in 4 stacks of 4 at a time to Pandos upstairs in the Hogcaller inn in WFP. Went from amible right through kindly to warmly. Was able to check that by conning Pandos himself.

Now I just need to get some friends to help me kill the corrupter.

Crushbone orcs also raises Faydarks Champions faction. I never did any quest, just killed orcs and I am warmly. So for all you half elves and humans who find yourselves with high faction, it could be because you spent some time in CB.
Items in Qeynos Hills

I saw a few new spawns in qeynos hills.. Gnoll runner and Bandit runner.. they drop blocks of granite.. Enchanted clay..accursed paint and some charisma necklace. Maybe these are items use to make the ancient bowl. Now all we got to do i find the elves of Old to make the bowl or at least try. Also i found a bear spawn.. its inbetween Hadden spawn and Qeynos.. its called a Defiled Grizzly.. we killed it twice today was a long spawn time so have fun ). Oh ya he dropped Cros Treewind's staff.. not a bad weapon and maybe used in a later part of the quest. Also i cant stand these peeps leaving comments on how we should get off the druid quest and find our own.. Give me a break you cant talk smack till you solve yours
