"A Caravan Master" - Sanctus Seru, male Human, plate armor, arena spectator.

- This faction was received by an Iksar Shadowknight:
Your faction standing with Shoulders of Seru could not possibly get any worse.
Your faction standing with Heart of Seru has been adjusted by 5.
Your faction standing with Eye of Seru has been adjusted by 5.
Your faction standing with Seru has been adjusted by -2.
Your faction standing with Katta Castellum Citizens could not possibly get any better.
Your faction standing with Nathyn Illuminious has been adjusted by 12.

Loot was Iron Visor, Combine Gladius, Combine Gladius, Small Brick of Yttrium Ore.
The Nathyn faction and the yttrium surprised me.

- There are a lot of factions here. Mob A will raise this and that, while Mob B will drop the same and affect others.
There will come a day when I note the many by their names which have which specific factions, but it is not this day.

Greetings all. I am trying to do the quest for the sword that procs disempower. I am a Troll warrior who worships RZ. If I use a human illusion potion will it make it so that I can walk around in here up to the quest giver? I already have the broken sword, did that with my main and let my warrior loot the No Drop turn in piece.

So, if I invis before zoning into SS and then get to a safe area with no mobs/inhabitants can I use a Illusion Human potion and do my turn in. Thanks to anyone who can answer this.

I've killed Lord Seru with 8 people before.Its a LONG fight if you dont have the bane weapons, which none of us did. LIS has an unresistable stun that lasts 1 tick i think. Anyhow i usually tanked (SK) or used a pally friend to tank him due to easy agggro with spells instead of weapon procs. HAVE AN ENCHANTER!! to mezz the add that pops near the center of the room. other then that, pull seru to the corner of his room and pin him there while the casters park behind the pillers around him (his AE is LOS) or just have all your casters stand in the middle of the room where Seru WAS before you engaged. be prepared for a long long fight. When i did him with 8, it lasted close to an hour.

Raid Strategy for Sanctus Seru
# May 02 2004 at 9:34 PM Rating: Good
If anyone has been repeatedly successful at the 4 Praesertum and Lord Inquistor Seru and have the time, a strategy guide posted here would be a big help:

I've done some research and the following is what I've found so far. This zone has a very complex faction set up but my suggestions below should allow a raid force to gather and COH to their destination. I am a little more careful than some folks when it comes to raiding because INVIS Drops when you dont want it too and CR's and fighting your way to a mob is a waste of time when the yard trash does not drop anything valuable.

#1. FACTION: There seems to be about 6 different factions in Sanctus Seru, maybe 7. These factions are based on the storyline of the Seru/Katta struggle and relate to the storyline quite well. Reading the storyline will benefit you if you intend to do these raids more than a couple of times.
a. Four are based on the 4 Priests (Praesertum) and their followers that represent the extended Hand, Eye, Shoulders, and Heart of Seru the Entity.
b. I believe there is a 5th directly related to Seru the Mob and not Seru the Zone Boss Entity. The Preatori (Named Preatori/ Preatorian) seem to be directly linked to Seru. The Named Praetori inside the Arx were KOS to all characters I sent to Seru just by getting too close to the Arx (following along the wall and trying to click on the boarded up portal window). They came from out of no where and waxed a human paladin, human warrior, wood elf druid, halfling druid, and cleric, all of which have never killed a Seru mob and some where invis'd. These are not related to the Guardians of the Arx who seem to share a faction of their own I havent yet discovered or share faction with the town folk.
c. There is also a base faction for the Citezens of Seru and most the merchants.
d. Seru NPC's seem to have some racism.

a. The Preasertum Protectors are: (Heart) A Lictor of the Heart - LvL 60 -(Summons, Heals, Minor Nuke); (Eye) A Vigilum Cohortis - LvL 60 -(Summons, Heals, Roots, Drones of Doom); (Hand) A Signiferi of the Hand -LvL 60 -(Summons, Heals, Stuns) and (Shoulders) A Custos Armorum - LvL 60 -(Summons, Furys, Stuns, Rampage). All drop the Consortium Report but it is not always droppped. Seems to be a rare to uncommon drop. There are approximately 7-10 of them protecting each Praesertum. These are located in the 4 temples that surround the Arx (Center Building with no visible means of access). Protectors of the Praesertum (Praesertum are Seru Mini's needed for 4th Earring and Arx Key and the Protectors as I call them are the ones needed for the 3rd earring) drop the consortium reports and are identified in the quest posted elsewhere on Alla's. They are linked to the faction of the particular priest they protect. They are located in what seems to be a dead end hallway that leads to a secret passageway behind them where the Praesertum reside in their bed chambers. Obviously they all will attack you if you attack one of them. The mobs nearby will assist as well but once inside this hidden hallway I only found the protectors save one Praesertum area guarded by two named mobs.

b. The Preaseturm are:
Praesertum Bikun /loc 7.84, 234.20, 157.75
Praesertum Matpa /loc -855.33, -671.87, 157.75
Praesertum Rhugol /loc 5.05, -686.12, 157.75
Praesertum Vantorus /loc -875.18, 211.99, 157.75

I am not sure which represents the extended parts of Seru (Hand, Eye, Heart, Shoulder) at this time.

#3. RAID SET UP - This is a Call of Hero style Raid. You will need a 55+ Mage. I would advise against fighting your way there because of time and unecessary faction hits:
a. GATHER RAID FORCE - Regardless of which mobs you are after, the best place I found to avoid a whole lot of agro is the larger open area in the hallway just inside Sanctus Seru from Marus Seru zone. Its large enough to gather a good sized force and far enough away to avoid agroing nearby NPC's. There are only 2 guards inside and 1 wandering female barbarian who does not like dark races. These mobs were anywhere from Lvl 45 to 52. This raid requires levels above 55 and I highly recommend everyone be above Level 60. You will need mostly casters/nukers/rangers and a handful of melee.
b. PROTECTORS/PRAESERTUM - SUMMON RAID -Use a non-kos mage and non-kos druid that will not participate in battle so they can remain NON-KOS. Escort mage to the appropriate spot with the druid (I am using a level 52 but a lower level would work fine) who has bound at the raid force and make the druid Group Leader. Escort them to the room outside the chambers of the Preasertum, gate the druid to bind and begin inviting and COH'ing the raid force Invis'd. Keeping members invis'd allows time for the raid force to gather and avoid unnecessary/premature agro. I believe this should work for the 4th Earring (Killing the Praesertum) but I am not sure of the agro radius within the chambers. I will find out soon and post it here.

#4. RAID STRATEGY - Some information I have gathered below could be useful.
a. PROTECTORS: When killing the mobs for the 3rd Earring quest, you can coh the raid force to a room near each NPC that leads to the hallway to the Praesertum Chambers, however, I think its best to start inward and work you way out. If you start outside, its a good idea to have someone designated to handle adds not related to these mobs so they can root and mem blur as you move deeper towards the Preasertum. As said, there are 7-10 of these mobs all named the same and each with a chance of dropping the consortium report. Experience sucks and loot sucks otherwise. A group of 60+ can handle them easily with a good tank and healer, slower recommended.
b. PRAESERTUM: These mobs are LEVEL 66!When killing the 4 mini bosses for the 4th earring keep in mind, Each of them will banish you to a location inside Seru if you try to direct melee them. Stay out of melee range and use pets, nukes and ranged melee items. I would recommend 8 people. A necro, 2 mage's, shaman, enchanter, 2 clerics, 2 65 rangers to make it as fast as possible.
c. LORD SERU: 1 Arx Key can get an entire raid force into Seru's Chambers if done right by binding the Key Holder at Raid Gathering Spot and making them Group Leader and using a wizard to tele to bind or gate potions/gate what have you...
(1) Noted: There is a way to get into the hallway outside of the Arx. I found it once with my main and cant seem to find it again. If anyone has a /loc on this portal, plz post here. I was not KOS to all mobs, but with invis I was able to run around the entire outside hallway of the Arx.
(2) Elsewhere on Alla's is a post about the inside of Seru's chambers stating that moving to one corner lessons the agro of mobs outside his chamber. I am not sure where exactly the Arx key puts you inside his chambers. I assume its somewhere outside of agro range since clicking on the Arx key would drop any invis effect you would have.
(3) As explained above, trying to gain access into the Arx by looking for secret passages and portals along the outside walls of the Arx will get you killed.
(4) You can only do direct melee with LIS if you have Bane Seru weapons. He works just like Valdanov Zevfleer in Tenebrous Mts. (Loyalist Shield Quest). Make sure you have 1-3 tanks with Bane Seru weapons keeping him occupied why the rest nuke.

I would appreciate the assistance of those who have been fortunate and powerful enough to take out LIS on repeated occasions to provide the rest of us with some helpful info. Also, any nice votes on this message are appreciated.

Me and my guild are going to be doing LIS soon.

My guild leader has finished all 4 of the earrings and only needs Seru's head to finish the last one.

I did the first one last night, and will be doing the second one tonight.

Seeing as none of us have ever been into the Arx or seen LIS, I do not know any strategies, but will be finding out soon.
Arx Key
# Feb 26 2004 at 12:46 PM Rating: Decent
The Quest for the Arx Key (unlimited charges of group gate into Seru's chamber) begins in Katta Castellum. The NPC is Elnerick Augustleaf.

To obtain the key, 4 shards are needed. One from each of the 4 Praesertums in Sanctus.

Is anyone willing to share some information about Seru himself now that we've had links to weapons and key quests.

Strat info isn't really necessary, but knowing what he hits for, if he's indeed slowable, and if there are any mobs leading up to him in the pyramid would be very helpful!

If you want faction for this zone, kill "Thought Leech's" (and anything else that spawns in the TL cave in Mons Letalis. There are plenty of mobs there to keep you busy, and everything in the cave raises Santus Seru faction. Not sure bout the rest of the ML zone..
# May 05 2003 at 6:39 AM Rating: Decent
I don't know if it was the numerous times I killed at the top of the tower in Mons Letalis, or the Several times I have killed the Servitor of Luclin and Grieg himself but I am ally to this city and even the wandering guard does not attack me. So those are some idea's about how to get faction. I would say it was probably the Servitor of Luclin though as I did not do the tower that many times.
Because I am needed to serve my people.

I am thinking of murdering the Sanctus Seru guards for experience, but am worried about ruining my faction. I am an Ogre Shaman and will be fighting with an Ogre Shadowknight. I have a feeling there is not much that I can do to get un-KOS in Sanctus, nevermind actually able to talk to anyone in the city. Never the less, if there actually was a reason that i would want to keep my faction up in Sanctus I'd leave these guards alone. I've been told that most people just end up slaughtering their Sanctus faction because the quests in Katta are much better anyway. Any insight would be appreciated.

For those of you who are interested in making Seru Bane weapons. Here is some good info. Look up Luclin Zones, then click on Ssraeshza Temple and then click on Quest lists, then click Seru Bane weapons. To make Seru Bane weapons you will need brewing 240 or higher, smithing 250.

The weapons are pretty nice, even if you never get to use them for Seru hehe.

Go to Mons Letalis. there is a big tower in the middle of the zone. The entrance is in the NorthEast leg of the tower via a tunnel. The shades there give positive faction hits for all of the Sanctus Seru factions. With a 54th SK 50th cleric 50th mage and 50th ranger we kept the top level of the tower cleared. Most mobs were light blue at 54th. loot is soso xp wasn't bad for fighting light blues. Haven't checked to see what 2 hours of killing there did to my factions but since it raises all 5 factions its a good place to hunt for faction.

I have been spending a lot of time in Sanctus Seru lately, and think it is a beautiful city. There is only one problem... I died in there twice.
Watch out for the prison cells in the lower level, it's full of netherbians whose cell isn't locked and they come out and put serious hurt on you.
The second thing- I am a high elf agnostic enchanter, and I was wandering around in there one day and heard this scream, "Enchanters like you make me sick!" and was promty splattered by a Castorum Vigiletum (sp?). I have NO IDEA what would have made them do that, I haven't done any faction quests whatsoever on Luclin. So be careful where you walk.

Luclin Spells in Sanctus Seru
# Feb 04 2002 at 3:47 PM Rating: Decent
245 posts
I've found where Luclin Spells can be purchased in Sanctus Seru. There's a big building toward the middle of the zone. Much of it is consists of a large library. The building has multiple floors and teleports. I found guild trainers for warriors and rogues. There may be more trainers for other classes.

Here are the locations for two npcs that I found that were selling spells:

Luclin Paladin and Cleric spells are located in Sanctus Seru at npc Diendra Berit at pos 132, pos 64, up 88.

Luclin Enchanter spells are located in Sanctus Seru at npc Vrogar Umerus at neg 64, pos 60, up 88. (If I recall correctly, this npc also has spells for one or more other classes, but I didn't make detailed notes on what they are.)

The up portion of the loc is important. If the up part of the loc isn't close, you may be on the wrong floor.

I'm currently working on improving my faction with the NPCs in Sanctus and consider indifferent to kindly with heart,eye,shoulder,hand,seru,hand legionnaire,citizens,etc...

I was killed last night by Praetorian Pius. He bashes for 110, slashes for 250, stuns for 110. I suspect he is a Pally. If you stay away from the Seru temple (the temple with the closed/locked door) you will probably be fine. He does not seem to roam and has a 'normal' aggro range.

If you were killed by him you may not have a Sanctus faction problem, you may simply have been unlucky as I was last night. Has anyone ever conned him and considered anything other than 'scowling'?

I just wanted to post a warning about going up high into the walls of the city. There is an entrance to gate up there, but getting down is a bear. I walked around the entire city before I had to cast levitate and coast down. No way out once you are up and if you don't have levitate, you could be in serious trouble. Nothing but guards up on walls anyway.

Actually, there is a way down, you just have to keep running, and you will find another portal that looks like the one that took you up, it will take you back down into the city.

Um,, Lev does not work in this city. I tried when I fell in the pool and could not get out. It told me I could not cast in this zone.
Same with Katta

Been a LONG time, but if memory servers, you put yourself at autorun (or autoswim in this case), and change camera angle. I do remember it was 3rd person view, and it was either viewed from above behind, or below behind.... after I learned that, i got out in seconds....
hope this helps... if its not too late... lol

What's the trick to getting the NPCs to talk? Is there some killing or faction adjustment that needs to be done?

No matter where I go in Sanctus, all they ever say when hailed is "Greetings, Liltree."

I've had success in getting some of the NPCs to talk. Below is text describing the location, how the NPC considers to me, and the chat. The chats listed are from NPCs that do not seem to be listed in any other Sanctus quest. All locations are within the Sanctus Seru zone. Later today I will attempt to engage these NPCs in more conversation in hopes of gathering a little more info.

Your Location is -985.65, -525.84, 59.75
Torsten Reidan glowers at you dubiously
You say, 'Hail, Torsten Reidan'
Torsten Reidan says 'Oh, hello there. Sorry I didn't notice you before I was thinking of an old friend. This used to be his room. I guess no one else has been assigned to these quarters.
You say, 'what old friend'
Torsten Reidan says 'His name was Bregun Dorey. What a funny little halfling he was. He had a good heart and worked hard. That is up until one day he just started acting odd, very nervous like he was hiding something. Then all he would talk about was Bixie Treats and then show off some weird heirloom charm bracelet. His time for the question came and due to his odd behavior he was sent to Marus Seru. I sure wish I knew how he was doing.

Your Location is -855.33, -671.87, 157.75
Praesertum Matpa regards you indifferently
You say, 'Hail, Praesertum Matpa'
Praesertum Matpa says 'Busy man, can't chat. Important?

Your Location is -875.18, 211.99, 157.75
Praesertum Vantorus judges you amiably
You say, 'Hail, Praesertum Vantorus'
Praesertum Vantorus says 'You are a brave one, are you not? Few dare to disturb a Praesertum in his chambers, and fewer still dare to disturb me. Ha! I like that. What is it you seek? I promise nothing, but you earned some small portion of my time to listen to you. I also warn you, any treachery will meet a swift and final end. Of this have no doubt.

Your Location is 7.84, 234.20, 157.75
Praesertum Bikun judges you amiably
You say, 'Hail, Praesertum Bikun'
Praesertum Bikun says 'Well hello <PC name>! Welcome to Sanctus Seru! Welcome to my chambers! Always glad to see new faces around here, it is good for business and good for morale.

Your Location is 5.05, -686.12, 157.75
Praesertum Rhugol looks your way apprehensively
You say, 'Hail, Praesertum Rhugol'
Praesertum Rhugol says 'Greetings, <PC name>.
At a con of apprehensively he has little to say. I suspect he will have more to say when faction is improved. I say this because of his room location.

Your Location is 1204.64, 347.20, 59.75
Legionnaire Palati judges you amiably
You say, 'Hail, Legionnaire Palati'
Legionnaire Palati says 'I have too much on my mind to make chit chat <PC name>.
You say, 'what is on your mind'
Legionnaire Palati says 'If you really must know, I am worried about my brother.
You say, 'who is your brother'
Legionnaire Palati says 'My older brother Yill. He's a Praetorian, a fine fine soldier who was promoted from the Legion to Seru's personal guard. He has been doing that for years now. But he just had his Question a few weeks back, and since then, he has not been the same. This was his tenth Question. I have been through eight myself, they are rough at times, but it is for the good of the city. You can fail and are cast out, die in the process, or you pass and go on with your life. But what happened to Yill is different.

I also have made one of the npc's talk, in the middle of zone in one of the trainer buildings is the ranger guild leader, he will talk to you about something to do with katta and then he says something about his jewelled quiver of the hand and only the faithful or something get it 8)

I was checking out Sanctus Seru the other day, and decided to take a dip in one of the pools (My armour was all dusty). Anyway, only after I jumped in did I realise that there was in fact no way out, the sides of the pool were too high to climb out. Being a warrior I had no way to get myself out, and there was no-one else in the zone to help.

Well anyway 2 hours later, after petitioning, a GM came and summoned me out.

it seems to be a common problem. My halfling has no problems getting out, but my half elf did have to work for about five minutes to get out.

I waited one day as a human tried to get out for five minutes until he asked if I would pull his body out and rez him if he just drowned himself.

My wife can't get her halfling out, but has no problems with her wood elf. I couldnt move her halfling around to get her out either.

We paged a GM with her halfling, and they had no problems getting out, but did after a few minutes finally pull her out of the water.

I think there is a definite problem with the way its set up, but they just don't know how to fix it yet.

Same problem here... I am on the Zeb server and after being stuck in the pool for a good time waiting for a GM a Lone Druid Happened upon the zone. I begged for an evac out but to no avail. I was literally at her feet and she Evac without me. Still waiting I decided to try all I could to get out.. (Ranger) I swam to a corner Pointed straight up and ran while ducking repeatedly. That finally released me from the Seru Pool of ****! Keep this trick in mind while waiting for those SLOW GM's to show up.

This happened to me tonight, and luckily I have a second machine that I used to look up this info. Thanks, it worked fine.

However, before I found this, I petitioned. Just after I got out, a GM showed and asked how I got out. I told her, and she was shocked to hear that there was a way (I guess this must be a known problem). I told her about the ducking trick, and so she went an tried it out a few times. She was impressed. So, congradulations, you've out-trivia'ed a GM ;-)

If the swimming tricks don't work, try raising swimming skill to build up speed. I was stuck for 2 hours with a wood elf ranger until I got bored and started swimming around to raise skill. After getting a skill above 60, popped right after swimming at side of pool looking up at about 45 degree angle and approach angle of about 33 degrees or a bit less. Best bet though is to not be tempted by the evil swimming pools in this evil city.

Yes beware of the swimming pools, i got stuck in one with my Wood Elf Ranger on tallon, and as anyone from the zeks can vouch for this; there are like no gm's on the pvp servers, they just wont touch em so i had to find my own way out. First as mentioned above, run and duck repeatedly while looking up, or swim around till your swimming goes up to the point where you have enough speed to escape. I think there is a bug in that particulare aspect of the zone as the ground isnt all that high above the water, now the 3rd and last ditch strategy is to drown yourself right next to the wall and drag yer corpse out, now be carefull as that does not allways work, and have necro backup for corpse summoning.

I've not seen any there, but given the fact that they were against Katta for the fact that DE's were let into Norrath... I'd say ya, DE's are KOS there.

Besides, if your Dark Elf, you'd wanna go to Katta. Very dark, morbid, gothic place... you'd love it!

And, for whatever reason, alot more quests have been found in Katta than Seru. I'm milking Katta for all I can get before getting my faction up with Seru. Faction will be easy to get in the Seru arena... I think. ;)

Yes! At least, a DE Rogue that worships Bristlebane is. :) I found out the hard way about 20 minutes ago. I was dubious to the "hands" outside and the Legionaires inside Neth. However, the Legions right inside the zone slaughtered me. Luckily a cleric happened by, or I would still be on CR. I came here to see what can be done about my faction. I want to do the Eye of Trust quest. :P
