Quests for Mines of Gloomingdeep

Arachnida (Normal): This task is given by Guard Rahtiz near the entrance to the mines -- -209, -112.

You say, 'Hail, Guard Rahtiz'

Guard Rahtiz says 'Greetings, ______. We're glad you found your way to our camp. We can use all the help we can get!'

You have been assigned the task 'Arachnida'.

The kobolds are raising the Gloomfang Spiders to guard these mines. Queen Gloomfang's latest brood recently tore free from their cocoons and now the southern caves are crawling with giant spider.

Get in there and clear out those blasted things!

Kill 12 Gloom Spiders 0/12 (The Mines of Gloomingdeep)
Kill 4 Gloomfang Lurkers 0/4 (The Mines of Gloomingdeep)
Return to Guard Rahtiz with News of your success 0/1 (The Mines of Gloomingdeep)

You say, 'Hail, Guard Rahtiz'

Your task 'Arachnida' has been updated.

Well done! If you collected any Gloomingdeep Silk, be sure to give it to Vahlara. She can use it to make bandages for the other wounded slaves. Here are some coins I found on a dead kobold. Good work, my friend!

You receive 7 gold
You receive 1 platinum.
You gain experience!!
Basic Training (Normal): Arias can be found at loc -120, -25, 15. Hail him to begin the quest and learn about "Find Path".

You say 'Hail, Arias'

Arias says, 'We found the other slaves! Not bad, my friend, not bad. No matter what happens in the mines, you should always be able to find your way back here'

Now leave Arias and find Absor, standing by the fire at loc -90, -200, 15. Hail him to learn about weapons.

You say 'Hail, Absor'

Absor says 'Hello _____. Before the slave revolt, I was forging picks and shovels. Now I'm making weapons so we can fight back. Mainly swords and spears. Simple stuff. If you give me your weapon, I can make you a better one.'

Give your weapon to Absor to continue.

Absor takes the weapon from you and begins to polish and balance it. When he hands it back to you, it scarcely resembles the decayed old thing that you were using.

Absor says, 'There you go. That should work much better.'

You receive your weapon back. Equip it and proceed to next task; finding Vahlara. She can be found at loc -80, -50, 15. Speak with her.

You say, 'Hail, Vahlara'

Vahlara says 'I'm glad you managed to escape the slave warrens in one piece. There are many [others] who were not as lucky. Here, take this armor we found on a kobold. It's not much but it should keep you safe.'

You have to equip the armor given to you for the next step to update the quest. The armor is the ARMS piece of your Gloomingdeep Kobold set.

You say, 'What others?'

Vahlara says 'We have many wounded and they need bandages. If you can find any gloomingdeep silk, bring it to me and I can make more bandages. I'll reward you with whatever burlap armor pieces I can find.'

Find Xenaida sitting by the fire close by Absor at loc -110, -205, 15 and hail her to proceed with the task.

You say 'Hail, Xenaida'

Xenaida says 'Greetings _____. I need some mushrooms to finish my healing potion for the wounded slaves. I marked the location of some mushrooms on your map. Can you bring one to me. I am rather busy here at the moment'

Find one of the Gloomingdeep Mushrooms. They're marked with dark red text on your map, at loc -200, -50, 15 and loc -195, -65, 15. Pick one up and bring it back to Xenaida.

Xenaida says, 'Thanks! Very helpful!'

Now, time to find Rytan at loc -185, -180, 14 and hail him to learn about spells.

You say, 'Hail, Rytan'

Rytan says 'Hello _____. I'm not much of a fighter myself but I can bestow the power of my god's favor. Would you like to be [blessed]?

You say, 'I would like to be blessed'

You become blessed by the protection of the gods, healing injuries.

If you are a magic-user in any shape or form, you will now receive a minor spell depending on your class.

Rytan says, 'You seem to be a bit of a caster yourself! You will find that spells and songs can greatly enhance your power. Take this and scribe it in your spell book. I can only hope it helps you against the kobold horde. As you earn money and gain experience you will fnd other powerful spells. Good luck out there!'

Now, find Prathun at loc -30, -130, 16 and hail him to learn about communication.

You say 'Hail, Prathun'

Prathun says, 'There are many members of the revolt that can aid you as you combat the kobolds. A green soldier like yourself won't last long without friends. You should talk to others and be nice to them, so they can help you succeed.'

Prathun says, 'The trick to talking to other adventurers is to be yourself and go through proper channels. No one likes a hothead who begs for coin by shouting at everyone in earshot. But if you ask nicely enough, chances are you can get others to team up with you on your adventures.'

Prathun says, 'The dangers of combat and the adventuring lifestyle can sometimes bring out the worst in people. It's important to keep a cool head and only shout when absolutely necessary.'

Prathun says, 'Good luck out there, friend. I'm sure you'll do fine.'

Now return to Arias and hail him to let him know that you've talked to everyone that had important information for you. He will in return give you the Kobold Skull Charm, the best charm item that you will have for a while.

You say 'Hail, Arias'

Arias says, 'Well done, my friend. Take this kobold skull charm. You are now ready to join ranks with the slaves and fight against the Gloomingdeep kobolds. Speak with Guar Rahtiz for your next assignment.'

You gain experience!! Reward: Kobold Skull Charm
Reward: Gloomingdeep Kobold Chain Sleeves
Reward: Gloomingdeep Kobold Plate Vambraces
Reward: Gloomingdeep Kobold Cloth Sleeves
Reward: Gloomingdeep Kobold Leather Sleeves

Clearing the Vermin Nests (Normal): Find Guard Rahtiz at loc -213.58, -109.30, +14.62 and hail him. A Task window will pop up.

You say, 'Hail, Guard Rahtiz

Guard Rahtiz says, 'Greetings, _____. We're glad you found your way to our camp. We can use all the help we can get!'

You have been assigned the task 'Clearing the Vermin Nests'

The vermin infesting these tunnels threaten our scarce provisions. If you want to help our revolt, start by clearing the tunnel beyond of rats and bats. Speak with Vahlara when you've finished your hunt and she will reward you with a pair of stitched leggings. They're not much, but they're all we can spare right now.

(Hint: You may also speak with Wijdan in the slave revolt camp after you finish this mission. He's interested in buying any rat fur you've acquired.)

Kill 8 Cave Rats 0/8 (The Mines of Gloomingdeep)
Kill 4 Cave Bats 0/4 (The Mines of Gloomingdeep)
Destroy 4 Vermin Nests 0/4 (The Mines of Gloomingdeep)

The rats and bats start appearing just down the tunnel, and they'll be plentiful in the next two rooms, the Gloomfang Lair not included. The Gloomfang Lair is easy to spot by the spider webbing hanging by the entrance.

While hunting rats, keep a good eye out for a white named rat called Rufus. He pops in random locations anywhere that rats and bats does and he will occasionally drop some good stuff.

Kill 8 Cave Rats and 4 Cave Bats - you'll come across little piles of rock here and there - more specifically at loc -391.49, -327.46, -37.32 and loc -457.80, -392.40, -39.04, at loc -525.51, -341.15, -39.35 and -587.16, -418.26, -39.91. Those are the Vermin Nests. Select them and type /open. Open 4 of these.

Speak with Vahlara 0/1 (The Mines of Gloomingdeep)

Once all is done, head up to speak to Vahlara in the slave revolt camp, loc -80.48, -49.94, +16.10.

You say 'Hail, Vahlara'

Your task 'Clearing the Vermin Nests' has been updated.

Vahlara says, 'Well done. The revolt's food supply is safe for the time being. Report back to the guards when you're rested.'

You gain experience!!

You receive leggings based on your class.

(Opt) Speak with Wijdann to sell your loot 0/1 (The Mines of Gloomingdeep)

(This is simply to let you know you can sell loot to a vendor.) Reward: Stitched Burlap Pants
Reward: Gloomingdeep Kobold Chain Leggings
Reward: Gloomingdeep Kobold Plate Greaves
Reward: Gloomingdeep Kobold Cloth Pantaloons
Reward: Gloomingdeep Kobold Leather Trousers

Collect Gloomingdeep Mushrooms (Removed): This has since been folded into the "Basic Training" quest for newbies.

Xenaida Akh`Zrial (Maps) may be found near the bridge, at +705, -610.

You say, 'Hail, Xenaida Akh`Zrial'

Xenaida Akh`Zrial says 'Greetings ______. I've been trying to find some Gloomingdeep mushrooms for some potions I'm making, but I can't seem to find any. If you happen upon some I can make you a potion if you bring one to me.'

Hand her Gloomingdeep Mushrooms, a ground spawn at +570, -660, behind Rytan (Buffs and Spells). (What is the reward now, if any?)
Gloomingdeep Silk Collecting (Removed): This has since been folded into the "Basic Training" quest for newbies.

This task begins with Vahlara in the Mines of Gloomingdeep.

You say, 'Hail, Vahlara'

Vahlara says 'I'm glad you managed to escape the slave warrens in one piece. There are many [others] who were not as lucky. I have something that might save you from the same fate. Take this kobold charm. It will increase in power as you talk to the rest of the members of the revolt. May it bring you good luck, ______.'

You receive a Kobold Skull Charm.

You say, 'What others?'

Vahlara says 'These few here. They were injured when the revolt broke out. I'm trying to help, but we have a short supply of [bandages], and more wounded keep coming. I fear many will not survive the hour.'

You say, 'What bandages?'

Vahlara says 'I was a skilled tailor before I was enslaved, so I'm able to weave spider silk into makeshift gauzes and dressings. But now even the spiderling silk is running scarce. If you can find three pieces of spiderling silk, bring them to me unstacked, and I'll give you some armor I've crafted from burlap. Burlap's no good for bandages anyway.'

Hand in one piece of Gloomingdeep Silk to receive a random piece of stitched burlap armor.

This is an excellent quest to do at low levels to build up some money for later on. Reward: Kobold Skull Charm
Reward: Stitched Burlap Cape
Reward: Stitched Burlap Collar
Reward: Stitched Burlap Cord
Reward: Stitched Burlap Gloves
Reward: Stitched Burlap Hood
Reward: Stitched Burlap Pants

Reward: Stitched Burlap Wristband

New Beginnings (Removed): You say, 'I am ready to leave.'

Arias says 'Farewell, my friend, and thanks for all your help. I'm going to stay here and help the other slaves as they escape. When you get the Plane of Knowledge, find my wife, Vivian the True. Let her know I'm still alive.'

After you leave the tutorial, you will see a new task pop up.


You have entered The Plane of Knowledge.
You have been assigned the task 'New Beginnings'.
A mysterious path appears before you. You feel strangely compelled to follow it.
A mystical path appears before you.

Plane of Knowledge: Hail Vivian the True

Congratulations! You have left the Mines of Gloomingdeep behind you and are now faced with the hustle and bustle of a large city. Find Vivian the True in the library for more information on our fair city.

You gain experience!!

Vivian the True may be found inside the entrance to the Library of Knowledge at 0, +885.

You say, 'Hail, Vivian the True'

Your task 'New Beginnings' has been updated.

Vivian says, 'You fought alongside Arias in the Mines of Gloomingdeep! He's alive then! Thank the gods! Thank the gods and thank you, stranger! Please let me repay your kind news with my hospitality. I can help you establish yourself here in the Plane of Knowledge. Really, it's the least I can do.

You gain experience!!
Poxan's Sword (Normal): You say, 'Hail, Poxan'

Poxan sighs heavily as he peers into the murky water. 'This is terrible, I've dropped my sword into the water and I can't swim! I don't suppose you could get it back for me ______? I can't very well fight kobolds without a sword.'

Poxan's Sword is located in the water at +685, -640, -90. Return it to him.

Poxan says 'Excellent, Thank you, ______. Now I can fight along side the revolt against the kobolds. Here take this. I found it in the tunnels earlier. You might need it.' Reward: Kobold Leather Mask

Rebellion Reloaded (Normal): This task is available once you hit level 3 and begins with Rahtiz in Gloomingdeep.

He offers two tasks, one of which is "Rebellion Reloaded".

Rahtiz says, 'The kobolds will be charging down this passage here. I'll only have time to fire a few arrows before they close to melee. Venture into the tunnels beyond and bring me one more arrow, it might just save my life. The kobolds typically leave extras ammunition in the barrels throughout the mines. Break a few of them open and you'll likely find some arrows we can use.'

(Hint: To open the barrels you can destroy and then loot the arrows from the wreckage.)

Deliver 4 Class 1 Wood point arrows to Guard Rahtiz 0/4 (The Mines of Gloomingdeep)

The arrows found in the Kobold barrels (either open with the open hot key or break them up to get them):

CLASS 1 Wood Point Arrow
Race: ALL
Base Dmg: 1
Weight 01
Range: 50
Skill: Archery

When you turn in one arrow Guard Rahtiz says:

Nice work, I'm sure the others will make good use of these arrows. I found this quiver stashed behind some boxes while out on patrol. I can't hit the wide end of an ogre with a bow, but maybe you can make better use of it.

You receive 9 gold
You gain experience!!
You have been given: Quiver (4-slot) Reward: Quiver

Spider Caves (Normal): Find Guard Vyrinn at the entrance to the tunnel, loc -211.36, -133.29, -15.02 and hail him.

You say, 'Hail, Guard Vyrinn'

Guard Vyrinn says, 'My mate, Rahtiz, and I will hold this position. We need you to explore the tunnels beyond.'

You have been assigned the task 'Spider Caves'.

Vahlara needs as much Gloomingdeep silk as she can get her hands on. She's in special need of Gloomingdeep cocoon silk which has a thicker weave yet remains supple enough to make bandages."

Sneak into the kobolds' spider hatchery to the south and harvest some Gloomingdeep cocoon silk from the spiderling cocoons.

Gather 4 pieces of spiderling cocoon silk 0/4 (The Mines of Gloomingdeep)

(Hint: Even though the cocoon clusters are objects and not NPCs, you can still attack, destroy and loot them normally)

Head down the tunnel, past the first rat room. You want to head into the room to the south, named Gloomfang Lair on your map; it has a big yellowish spider webbing in front of it. You probably want to do this quest along with the 'Arachnida' quest, as they will be many spiders in your way. You can evade them, though, and get the silk safely enough if you're careful.

The first cocoon can be found at loc -722.55, -455.75, -36.73. Select it and type /open to loot and destroy it.

There are more at the following locations:
-748.28, -248.85, -36.50
-792.50, -223.90, -34.39
-936.67, -357.36, -12.51
-1005.73, -473.37, -4.31
1112.68, -510.56, -11.00
-891.06, -628.08, -32.36

Deliver the silk pieces to Vahlara in the slave revolt camp 0/4 (The Mines of Gloomingdeep)

Once you have 4 Gloomingdeep Cocoon Silk, give them all unstacked to Vahlara, at loc -80.48, -49.94, +16.10, to claim your reward.

Your task 'Spider Caves' has been updated.

'Just in time,' Vahlara bows as you return. 'Many are wounded and more arrive by the hour. If you can find any Gloomingdeep silk, bring it to me and I can reward you with more burlap clothing. It's not much, but it's nicer than the rags these kobolds left us with.'

You gain experience!!
