Greater Faydark  

Quick Facts

Type: Outdoor

Instanced: No
Keyed: No
Level Range: 1 - 10
Send a correction
This forest serves as the gateway into Norrath for the wood elves of Kelethin and high elves of Felwithe. And with Ak'Anon and Kaladim so close by, it is not uncommon to see gnomes and dwarves throughout the area as well.

Don't let the safety of Kelethin's well-fortified boundaries fool you. While the area has numerous guard posts and patrols, the further you travel away from the city the higher level of danger and risk you will encounter.

The orc stronghold of Crushbone can be found along the northern boundaries of the forest while the darker, more dangerous Lesser Faydark lies to the south. Only those more experienced should consider travelling to the two areas.

Just killed every guard in Kelethin...

Guard Marshmoore, Guard Pineshade, Guard Tangelroot, Guard Fayfear, Guard Sunblaze, Guard Fireblight, Guard Rainstrider, Guard Brookrock, Guard Valewatcher, Guard Dayblaze,Guard Briarstorm, Guard Treestrider, Guard Eaglesong, Guard Orcflayer, Guard Fayfield, Guard Nitegazer, Guard Starstrike, Guard Sunweaver, Guard Noonshadow, Guard Oakwillow, Guard Streamtree, Guard Moonwind, Guard Pinebramble, Guard Highoon, Guard Crystalwind, Guard Frostfallen

Kelethin guards drop Fine Steel Long Sword, and a Round Shield.
However, Guard Highmoon, and Guard CrystalWind will drop a Long Sword, instead of a Fine Steel Long Sword

Faction hits for each of the 26 Kelethin guards:

Your faction standing with Emerald Warriors has been adjusted by -15.
Your faction standing with Indigo Brotherhood has been adjusted by 2.
Your faction standing with Merchants of Felwithe has been adjusted by -1.
Your faction standing with Kelethin Merchants has been adjusted by -1.

Btw, Captain Silverwind, and Lieutenant Leafstalker's info has been added to their respective pages, already.

There's a new NPC in GFay, Kalanpor Selldru, standing in the tunnel to Crushbone behind the orc guards. He conned Red to a Lvl 75 Ranger. All he said to a hail was "Kalanpor Selldru says 'I'm afraid I can't speak right now, <name>. I'm waiting for someone very important to arrive.'". There's a screenshot of him in the Screenshots tab...

Unfortunately, we don't track which direction the zone connections flow, only that there's a connection between the two. I agree, it'd be better if we tracked them directionally.

You can pretty much hunt here until around 6-7, than hit crushbone which is right off this zone until about 15 or so. Than head to Paladual Caverns and kill there until 25. You can do quests at any point in the game, but they do not give much exp. They are more for items and money and faction and what not.

hi all

I am returning to the game after a long long long interruption (1 year) and my mago low lvl has reappeared in the middle of a war !!!!!!! And moreover no more bats wolfs drakeling wasps or arborean. So as long as i can understand it is no more possible to do baby armour quest

That s really a pity that was tough in this area to obtain all elements but nevermind it was fun I hope the war will not last forever and htat newbies of nowadays can have the fun i had in the past

Multiple varieties of "Essence of ___ " potions (various racial illusions) also dropped.

Additionally, a very decent bow (Orcslayer, Bow of the Faydark Defenders? forget actual name)was also linked in zone many times, which supposedly dropped from one of the other named in zone, but never once dropped from the Captains.

The other event-related named from the zone that I saw were General Aauiden, Colonel Iluwenae, and Tactician Inuverae (all conned yellow at 69-same as captains).


**Will e-mail the screenies for named + loot to Allakhazam.

I got the book with my 66 enchanter but I cannot begin to tell you how stupid this event is. Did SoE learn NOTHING from the last couple of large scale events? Here are some dumbass highlights:

The Elf Enchanters (about 20% of the army) run around casting Winds of Tashania (AoE tash) stripping off people's invise.

Only the Elf leader drops the nice items so you have players of good races ROOTING FOR THE ORCS.

The whole thing only reinforces the worst sort of behavior people have bemoaned in EQ for years...ninja looting, selling loot rights, griefing.

As of today, I noticed some new mobs by Felwithe, where the trail forks to go towards Kelethin. One was "an enchanter," one was "a paladin" and one was "a Faydark captain." All were red to my level 46. They scowled at my DE NEC who has good faction with Emerald Warriors and dubious faction with the HIE PALs. The captain could see invis.

Does anyone know the answers to these questions?

1. Can a druid raise hide skills?
I am a level 20 Druid and have all my other skills to the max, but for some reason I cannot raise my hide skills. It is still at the same level that I started with.

2. Does anyone know how the tributes that you purchase from the Tribute Master work? I am totally baffled????? Smiley: confused

1) no, its a racial skill, starts at 50, capped at 50.

2) you give items to the tribute master, for points. You can use these points to buy effects, like extra mana regen, or improved damage for casters, or hp regen, extra attack or hp for melee. These effects use points up every 10 minutes.

For example, when I am grouping with my cleric, I like to nuke when full mana, so I turn on Improved Damage IV at a cost of 29 tribute points every 10 minutes. With it turned on, its EXACTLY the same as if I had an item with that effect.

Well for those that get lost alot and don't have a map, you can now use the find command. I don't know how well it works in kelithen but when I'm in freeport and looking for my guildmaster, he's hard to find, so I just use the find command. It helps alot!

GET A MAP!!!

Seriously, your life will be 1000x easier if you get a detailed map that tells you what's on each platform. The link is right <-- there. :)

#Nexuskiller, Posted: Feb 25 2003 at 1:38 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Let me tell you about an idea i had one day. I was running through Grater faydark and i had accedently attacked a nexus at the wizzy spires. Needless to say that i was killed Instantly. I was extreamly mad because i lost my exp. Through my hatered i studied the creature and i devised the most extravagant scheme ever. I was wondering if my fellow Citizens of norrath would aid me. Darkies and Lighties come together in a mass horde to take one down. "What's in it for me" a person might ask. Well i think that not only the feeling you get from uniting with all of the inhabitants of norrath to squash a common evil but a great possibilty of an uber pay off and Extream exp or maybe nothing just a cold hard defeat.I am not really sure if they drop anything or if they even give exp.They are most likely the least killed Npc in the game. I have heard of one or two being killed but to my knowlage no loot has ever been identified. There are only a couple of reasons why i have not been able to find the loot items either 1. The uber guild who took one down came up with an awsome item that they dont want to get nerfed because of 1000000 crying lowbies saying its too powerfull so they did not add it to new item lists 2. None of them have ever been killed 3. Normal Loot for lvl of mob 4. No loot :( Now i am not really sure yet of the master plan but i am thinking along the lines of a massive head on attack group attack at random with no aperant stratagey.A person could even make a mule char and lvl to 5 or 6 toe just for this battle.Toe to Toe with the Unchecked Evil of the world. Or i have got a more methodical aproach. Either way i could be just stupid or really tired but that is my idea and i am willing to set up shop on any server. e-mail me at massive_nexus_strike@YHAOO.COM if you have any ideas, you want to join (( lvl is of no importance 1-65 doesnt matter Class either warriors clerics shaman monks i am in need of warm bodies :) )) or you just want to flame about how stupid i am either way i will welcome your emails and i will try my very best to email you back .No matter what it says. More information on nexus is always welcome. E-mail me and give it a chance.

You will have to clear out Crushbone probably 30 times over. The higher the level of the mobs, the better the faction it gives you with the elven warriors/guards. It'll take effort, but if you really need the faction it can happen. The guards are amiable to my Innoruk worshipping DE after enough work.

Do the CB belt quest when you can (an illusion potion will help with faction, use Dwarf or Halfling) in Kaladim, that seemed to help my Emerald Warrior faction, even though that wasn't listed on the changed ones when I handed in the belts, from what I remember.

I have not tested this but found it on allakhazam for you

Talk to Regren inside the Emerald Warriors Guild.

He will ask you to bring him 4 items to prove your worth:

spiderling eye

ruined wolf pelt

bone chips

and bat fur.

He will reward you with xp, faction, money, and an item (often tattered armor).

Your faction improves with the Merchants of Kelethin, Emerald Warriors and Merchants of Felwithe and goes down with Indigo Brotherhood.

Does anyone know what faction the Merchants are? My gnome necro has gone all the way from dubious to amiable with the guards, but am still Dubious to the merchants. Therefore, I doubt its any of the factions related to killing orcs or turning in their belts/pads...

Any help here would be awesome, as I would like to be able to see in Gfay.

From what I've seen in my long and somewhat tedious travels the faction does not raise with the merchants from killing CB orcs. I know this firsthand...HOW WAS I SUPPOSED TO KNOW MERCHANTS WILL KILL IKSAR TOO?!...so i would suggest trying different quests with the High Elves and the Woody brethren.
