Good version - soloable
# Jul 15 2004 at 12:39 AM Rating: Decent
I just wanted to post that I soloed this whole quest. The toughest part was in Neriak. I charmed the one thug, pulled them out of tower, sent him to fight Gribnor. Got agro of the second thug, ran him around till the first thug was dead, then charmed the second thug and sent him in to finish to the job. I did get summoned when the first thug died, and I did end up casting rune on the 2nd thug 4-5 times in order for him to survive, all 3 become enraged.
I should also say when I zoned into the zone got my pet up and buffed and killed all the guards I came across. Everything was green and was pretty easy for the pet to kill. The thug's and gribnor were dark blue.
The last part in rathe mountains was fairly simple too, about 10 or so undead trolls spawn and slowly start to walk after you, I just avoided them and poof they disappeared when your frog buddy wins 20 or seconds later.
If any enchanter wants help on BB look me up, two of us could each charm a thug and it would be easy.

This spell also grants Ultravision.

The evil version of this quest is a heck of a lot easier. The giant spider kill is fun too ;) Did both mobs with 5 in group, 60+. SK tank (60) never went below 75%.

The hardest part for the evil version is tracking down the 2 player made poisons, Mind Melt and Susceptible Essence. I have seen them go for 1k and 2.5k in the bazaar.

However, if you collect the ingredients yourself, you will splash out about 50pp, and if you can find a GM poison maker, you'll soon be one happy froggy ;-)

Man I did this quest and after you get the three pieces you have to go and get Skyash bile from Skyfire and a pinc of drake lava powder from lavastorm combine it in a destiller that the guy gives you. Which in turn makes some sword cleaning stuff for the sword pieces you just got. Then after you give this to him the **** wants you to take the sword to the grave of the frog to and bring back proof. So I take the sword to the frogs remains which pops the trolls that killed him to begin with. I ran around like a chicken with my head cut off he killed the capped and just stood there. Then I turned in the sword back to the frog ghost and he gave me a memory to give to Uklo. So you take it back to him and give him the memory then he gives you the spell. Now after all of this guess what? The thing is broke and you appear as a human and not the frog. /sigh 6 hours I could have been exping. Oh well, I think I might have been the first to do this on Lanys. Oh well signing off.

Come now, they'll fix it.

If I were a chanter, this would be perm in my spell slot nearly wherever I went... once they fixed it, of course. And of course it wouldn't be when I was expecting to do battle...

But I'd have it when I was cracking or KEIing in PoK...

I'd probably also pay a chanter for PI'ing this spell on me if I expected to be in a certain zone for a while.


Strangely enough, I'm a SK...

I think you lose the illusion once you zone, so unless you find an enchanter actually in the zone you want to use the illusion, you're outta luck.

the aa's perminate illusion, and illusion other are required to cast this on another player. if the enchanter can cast it on you, then you should be able to zone with the illusion

You say, 'Hail, Master Scribe Uklo'

Master Scribe Uklo says 'Well met Aaniamen! Welcome to Gukta, the Outpost of Marr -- our new home and base of operations for our fight to remove the trolls from the rest of our beautiful swamp. The liberation of Gukta was quite a battle! Many brave Froglok warriors, a good dose of [powerful magic] and the blessings of Mithaniel Marr allowed us to cleanse this place of the vile Trolls.'

You say, 'what powerful magic'

Master Scribe Uklo says 'Our battle wizards called many comets of ice from the sky, along with bolts of pure magical force, brutal walls of flame and even [illusions] to confuse and disorient the stupid trolls.'

You say, 'what illusions'

Master Scribe Uklo says 'A select few of Mithaniel's chosen know the secrets of spinning illusions. This skill allowed our bravest warriors to infiltrate the Troll's defenses and ensure victory. These are some of our most closely guarded secrets. We only [teach] them to a select few so they can better aid us in our battle.'

You say, 'what teach'

Master Scribe Uklo says 'You must first [prove] yourself a friend of Gukta before I will teach you our secrets.'

You say, 'what prove'

Master Scribe Uklo says 'Very well, I will put your loyalty to the test. Long ago, a great hero of our people lost his life fighting the Trolls. He was in Rathe Mountains investigating a rumor that the Trolls were stockpiling special weapons in an effort to turn the tide of war back in their favor. He was ambushed by a group of troll marauders and their captain Krignok. He fought valiantly, slaying the marauders and eventually locking swords with the captain. But in the end, exhaustion got the better of him and he died by the troll's hand. The Krignok respected the froglok's ferocity and swore that they would one day finish their fight. So through a dark ritual the troll Captain locked the froglok's spirit in his own sword and broke it into 3 pieces. One piece he placed on the [battlefield] where they fought. The other piece he gave to an [infamous troll] warrior to guard. The location of the third piece has been lost over the time but there are [clues] as to where it may be.'

You say, 'what battlefield'

Master Scribe Uklo says 'The Mountains of Rathe hold many stories. One of them is the story of froglok warrior Chalex for this is the place where he was killed. Find the place where his bones are kept and say aloud "I wish to recover what is lost" and if you are worthy you shall receive a gift.'

You say, 'what infamous troll'

Master Scribe Uklo says 'Gribnor is one of the strongest trolls alive, he is also one of the shortest. His strength is the reason that the Troll Captain entrusted him with a piece of the sword because he knew that it would be almost impossible for anyone to take it away from him. Last we heard Gribnor had taken up residence in Neriak Third Gate along with the rest of those vile trolls. I warn you to be careful as allies of Gukta are not welcome in the home of Innoruuk's children.'

You say, 'what clues'

Master Scribe Uklo says 'The troll captain spent some time in the lower part of Guk. Apparently he was trying to control the undead frogs there and use them against us. His plans did not see fruition and while trying to escape he dropped the sword blade. It is rumored that another explorer found it and the power drove him insane doomed to wander the halls of Lower Guk seeking only to destroy others. I believe you will find this to be the toughest piece to retrieve.'

Gribnor in Neriak 3rd gate is located in the far back area across the single wooden bridge on the left as you come out. Go through the doorway on the right, across the walkway, then once in the building, go right, then up the stairs. He is at the appx loc of pos1285 neg1645 on the balcony that overlooks the walkway.

I am max ally with all Neriak factions (except the cleric guild) and this little ****** is KoS to me.
He is a Shadow Knight that harm touches for around 781 dmg (that's what he did to me anyway) and cons dark blue to a level 56. Beware when you go looking for him.
There are a few dark elves in the room with him, but they did not add.
His normal hits were doing around 80-120 dmg per, but don't know whether he doubles, quads, whatever cuz I didn't live long enough to "tell the tale."

FYI for all you dark elf chanters looking to get the Guktan Illusion.
