Jaled Dar`s shade may be found at +1590, -120. The simple way to get into Jaled Dar's lair is to have a rogue with a 210+ skill in lockpicking to open the door. If simplicity isn't your thing, or you just want the key for yourself, you can obtain it one of two ways: Either a quest offered by Zlandicar or a quest offered by Neb.

Once you've found your way into the lair:


You say, 'Hail, Jaled Dar`s shade'

Jaled Dar`s shade says 'Mortal! You MUST aid me. I will have my revenge, and my rest!'

You say, 'How can I aid you?'

Jaled Dar`s shade says 'You must wake The Sleeper. He is our salvation, he will restore a new golden age to Norrath. It was a terrible mistake to subdue him, jealousy and envy led us to do it. I see all of this clearly now.'

You say, 'Who is The Sleeper?'

Jaled Dar`s shade says 'Kerafyrm, the best of us, what we should be. We imprisoned him in a timeless slumber aeons ago. I know how to release him, but I am no longer of the flesh, so I cannot do it myself. But you can accomplish this task!'

You say, 'What task?'

Jaled Dar`s shade says 'When the tomb was closed and the entry sealed, many dragons participated in the ceremony. They invested portions of their essence into the seal. The seal is part of them now. With the right talismans, I can show you how to make a key that will allow one to pass, as if they were of the First Brood. If you do not wish to do this for the good of all, perhaps you will be willing to do it for material riches. Priceless treasures are stored in the tomb, yours for the taking, once you are inside and have released The Sleeper.'

You say, 'What talismans?'

Jaled Dar`s shade says 'Sontalak, Lendiniara, Klandicar, Yelinak, and Zlandicar are all that are left alive of those who were involved in the sealing of the tomb. Each has a talisman. Bring me any one of these items, or a large enough piece from one of the talismans from a dead first brood, and I shall unlock its power, which will allow you entry into the tomb.'

You'll need to give him either a talisman from any of the five dragons of the first brood mentioned or a Shard of Hsagra's Talisman, which is dropped uncommonly from top giants (King Tormax, Derakor the Vindicator, The Statue of Rallos Zek, Velketor the Sorcerer).

Jaled Dar`s shade says 'Very well done. Here is how you unlock the entry. Seek out a great dragon statue in the Eastern Wastes, and use this key there. Not very different from how you entered my old domain, Veeshan's Peak, now, is it? Haha, yes, I know many things, even dead.'

Did this quest solo 75 necro for the fun of it.
1. Use ""AON"" or similar to get throught door without rogue or key (can shrink skell form and camp as close to the door as possible and use whisper wind to by pass door.
2. Use growth potion or similar to get up on platform to give item.

I am ALLY to COV so not sure if can be done with sneak or ...

Fun but took hours to get dragon faction

ok, this had to be one of the most helpfull, and vague posts i had ever read. That being said, thank you sooo much Dilxar, it worked, took me an hour to find it, but i did finally, and got my key.

To Clarity, go around the back of his building, climb the rocks and lev onto the roof, now, as you were walking around the outside of the building you would see pillers in the wall, those are your ticket in. i use the piller closest to the rocks i used to get up, get up next to it, and look strait down, note that you can float down the 'triangle' shaped vent....

Thanks again there Dilxar for the post, and i hope everyone finds the clarification helpfull, if more details are needed, please send Tuda a tell on Xegony.

Happy and safe hunting all. =)

SIMPLE ANSWER
YOU NEED 211 OR HIGHER LOCK PICKING BY ANY MEANS AND YOU CAN PICK IT
211 +
# Feb 16 2006 at 12:40 PM Rating: Decent
Today I did the turn in for my ST key. I am a level 51 rogue with 202 pick lock skill. I wore the Cheirometric Lockpick Device which brings my skill to 208 pick lock and with Mechanized Lockpicks my skill was at 212. That was enough at level 51 for me to pick the lock.

So mods, as long as they push your skill to 211 or above, will open the door.

You NEED a 3% lockpick modifier. The 2% does NOT work. My skill was 210 and it did not open w/ mechanized lockpicks (2%). Also DO NOT be in any kind of illusion other then your true form as you will be wacked by the Shade quick. This may have been fixed recently but why take a chance! BTW the best way I have found besides using a "grow" potion, is to have SoE or Levi on then run and stand on top of a pot in front of the door down aways.- Then when rogue opens the door u haul **** inside and you can "float" to the step right near Shade and hail him for the turn in. Hope the info helps!

Is there a key somewhere that allows access to the shade? Or is it a rogue pick only? No one has mentioned an alternative to a rogue picking.

Ok just spent a good 45min trying to "lev in front a vent up top" and now I can see how typos can cause someone to waste a lot of time looking for something. First off it should say 'from' not 'front'. Secondly, the 'vent' that is refered to is at the top of each pillar of the building. Yes I realize you have to get on top of the building first...so...use the rocks out back (with lev on) to get up. This is trial and error but is doable. There are no mobs close enough to agro so don't worry if invis drops.

Hope this helps some of you out there.

For those that like the lore.. here's the quest script.

[Wed Apr 13 10:25:39 2005] You say, 'Hail, Jaled Dar`s shade'
[Wed Apr 13 10:25:39 2005] Jaled Dar`s shade says 'Mortal! You MUST aid me. I will have my revenge, and my rest!'

[Wed Apr 13 10:25:54 2005] Jaled Dar`s shade says 'You must wake The Sleeper. He is our salvation, he will restore a new golden age to Norrath. It was a terrible mistake to subdue him, jealousy and envy led us to do it. I see all of this clearly now.'
[Wed Apr 13 10:26:07 2005] You say, 'where is the sleeper'
[Wed Apr 13 10:26:07 2005] Jaled Dar`s shade says 'Kerafyrm, the best of us, what we should be. We imprisoned him in a timeless slumber aeons ago. I know how to release him, but I am no longer of the flesh, so I cannot do it myself. But you can accomplish this task!'
[Wed Apr 13 10:28:19 2005] You say, 'what task?'

[Wed Apr 13 10:29:46 2005] You say, 'what talismans?'
[Wed Apr 13 10:29:46 2005] Jaled Dar`s shade says 'Sontalak, Lendiniara, Klandicar, Yelinak, and Zlandicar are all that are left alive of those who were involved in the sealing of the tomb.

turned in talisman:

[Wed Apr 13 10:24:56 2005] Jaled Dar`s shade regards you indifferently -- looks like quite a gamble.
[Wed Apr 13 10:25:11 2005] Jaled Dar`s shade says 'Very well done. Here is how you unlock the entry. Seek out a great dragon statue in the Eastern Wastes, and use this key there.

For the people who keep saying a rogue cannot unlock the door anymore - quite simply, you are wrong. With 210 skill AND a mechanized lockpick, the door opens easily. That's as of 2-23-05. So quit trying to convince people otherwise.

ok were you just being stupid or did you not read hisher post?? Look at what was said. It takes at least a 210 unmodified lockpicking AND mechanical lockpicks (wich would raise your lockpicking quite a bit) in order to open it.....no a modified total of 210.

A while back on Morden Rasp i got my ST key. As of 1/25/05 i took a rogue guildie (with max picklock + lockpick) to DN. We took a full group with us to kill for fun, although NO mob between zone in and the shade's building sees invis that i ran into. NOTE : Do not walk into the bones or you will spawn plenty of fast hitting and stunning enemies. Walk into the building in middle of the zone (the shade's residence) and go all the way down the winding halls till you reach a locked door. HAve it opened by rogue (or by doing quests) and enter. The stairs to him were high, and lev did not do the trick for me (human). I got a Spirit of the shrew, and jumped up to stair number 2 (took a few tries at different angles, but nothing too hard). From here you can either jump up again, or do the turn in from that step. Hand in your shard/talisman and your set with a ''sleepers key''.

Also note, that The turn in mob was indifferent to everyone in my group, including myself (dubious CoV, kos RoS).

Hope this helps.

210 skill in lockpick, rogue caps at 200, so you NEED an item with a 5% modifier to lockpick. Read before you shout nerfed.

Rogue pick lock caps at 210. Before 50 at 200, but goes up 2 points or so each level until 210. So with a mech, the tinkered gloves, gloves of the brood etc it is easy to unlock.

Key Parts
# Dec 25 2004 at 4:24 AM Rating: Decent
36 posts
The pieces that will yield a Sleeper's tomb key are as follows

A talisman from any of these 5 dragons:Zlandicar(Dragon Necropolis), Klandicar(Western Wastes), Yelinak(Shyshrine), Sontalak(Western Wastes), Lendiara the Keeper(West Wing Temple of Veeshan)

a shard of Hsagra's Talisman from any of these mobs:
King Tormax (Kael Drakkal), Derakor the Vindicator (Kael Drakkal), Statue of Rallos Zek (Kael Drakkal), Velketor the Sorcerer (Velketor's Labrinyth)

The Idol of Rallos Zek DOES NOT have a chance to drop the shard, it drops nothing, and I ave never witneseed a drop from the Avatar of War, I don't believe he drops it.

You can have a rogue with 210 skill and 2% mod for at least 214 total skill pick Jaled'dar's door, or you can kill vaniki and zland, and take both of their hearts to Neb for a key to his lair, alternatively, you can kill Neb adn take his head to Zlandicar, keep in mind both of those turn ins take faction.

I don't believe any faction is needed for the talisman/shard turn in for the Sleeper's Key.
rogue picklock nerfed?
# Dec 20 2004 at 3:47 AM Rating: Default
they must've changed this in one of the recent patches because i could not pick the lock. a guildie asked me to come out to Dragon Necrop so he could do the turn in and after 100ish attempts and they same message "this lock cannot be picked" we left.

i play a 70 rogue, picklock maxed at 210 btw

Without lockpicks:
"It's locked and you're not holding the key."

With max skill (210) and regular lockpicks:
"This lock cannot be picked."

With max skill and 2% mechanized lockpicks (214):
"You successfully picked the lock."

I tried to do the key turn-in today and failed because our rogue (207 lockpick skill +3 % modifier) was told the lock was unpickable. Has the door changed, or does this require a true 210 lockpick skill?

It would have worked if the rogue had 208 skill and the 3% modifier. The modified skill needed to open this door is 214. This can be done with 210 skill and 2% modifier (mechanized lockpicks). At 207 and 3% modifier, the modifed skill is only 213. Get skill up to 208, and the 3% modifier will be enough to open the door.

FYI for the newb that said the sleeper can't be killed......The Sleeper HAS been killed on two servers and will NEVER be seen again there. He does NOT respawn EVER after he's been killed. Not sure what the other server is but I know that he has died on Bertoxulous. To bad really that he's gone on my server i would have liked to have been in on that kill. I did listen to the battle on chat channel and it took approx. 3 hours to kill him with 127 toons fighting him. From what i was told he has approx. 4000 or 5000 K (that's right K) Hp with around a 1500 per tick regen!! The raid that killed him had somewhere in the range of 70 rangers doing the dps along with countless Wizzy's with the tanks keeping him buzy while the clerics rezzed and buffed the fallen for over 3 hours! What an epic battle to have been a part of.

Your partially wrong. The sleeper was never killed on Bertoxulous, awoken yes, but not killed. He has only been killed on Rallos Zek and (I believe) that japanese server (the one that uses kunark gear).

While both are amazing accomplishments, I still think the RZ one is the better of the 2 since that sleeper was the upgraded one. To top it off, it is a pvp server and the GM stopped it the first time (when it was at 20%). The second time, they killed it but for all the effort, it dropped nothing.

I have read in other places that you need all 5 Talisman's to get your key, but from what I have read here and from what the quests says above you only need any one Talisman or the shard.....not all of them.

This right? Just seeing conflicting informaton.
