Coterie Mask of the Dead (Normal): Renaldok Masric glowers at you dubious - it appears to be quite formidable.

You say, 'Hail Renaldok Masric'

Renaldok Masric says 'Greetings mortal. The aura of death that surrounds you is the only reason you are not already a feast for my minions. Have you come to me as a sacrifice or are you offering your [services] to the Coterie of the Eternal Night?

You say, 'what services?'

Renaldok Masric says 'If you are powerful enough to be of use to me you will journey to the Twilight regions on the south side of Luclin and fill this wineskin with the blood of Akheva. Failure is final death, either at the hands of the Akheva or the hands of the Coterie.

You have fashioned the items together to create something new!

Renaldok Masric says 'Well done, for a mortal you have served us well.

Johanius Stake of Slaying (Normal): This quest begins with Johanius Barleou in the Tenebrous Mountains. He's found by the guard to the left of the Katta Castellum zone line (approximately -150, 1430). He seems to be a 4+ hour spawn.

You say, 'Hail, Johanius Barleou'

Johanius Barleou says 'Greetings traveler! You seem like a brave individual for having dared the Tenebrous Mountains without a patrol of Validus Custodus to defend you! I am need of some assistance in an [urgent matter]!

You say, 'What urgent matter?'

Johanius Barleou says 'My sister and my beloved Lyrra have been captured by the vile blood suckers are being held in the largest of their dark settlements. I can not face that number of blood suckers alone. Are you prepared to slay the wicked undead?

You say, 'I am prepared to slay the wicked undead'

Johanius Barleou says 'Excellent, I commend you in advance for your courage. Let us make haste lest something awful happen to my loved ones!

At this point Johanius starts walking out into the mountains. Nothing will aggro him, but you'll need to fight off whatever aggro's you.

He ends up at the 3-building Coterie camp at approximately 1300, -500 (#3 on EQAtlas map of Tenebrous Mountains). There doesn't seem to be a safe spot at this camp as roamers come through from all sides.

Upon stopping at this camp, Johanius doesn't say anything further. If you go up the hill to the right of where he stops, you will look into the camp and see three buildings: one to the left, one to the right and one straight ahead. There are two Coterie Centurions guarding the steps to the left and right buildings. Inside the right building is a named Coterie and another Centurion. The building straight ahead has one named in it. The building to the left has one Centurion in it, and the two NPCs that you are here to rescue.

Nothing summons and they are all snareable. The Coterie mobs will likely be invisible, so have a see-invis effect on you in some form.

You have to kill all of the vampyres at this camp (they're on an 11-minute spawn timer). The NPCs you need to rescue will tell you they all need to be dead before they can escape.

Kill all eight vampyres within the 11-minute time span and go to the building to the left with the NPCs. It will either be a hail or it will be automatic, but Johanius will enter the building and start to escort them back to Katta. (Note: Johanius' name has been changed at this point to Sir Johanius Barleou)

You say, 'Hail, Aellana Barleou'

Aellana Barleou says 'The Coterie of the Eternal Night is holding us captive! We can not leave until all the vampyres that reside in this village have been destroyed! If any of them are missing I assure you they will return! My brother Johanius is an experienced vampyre slayer and will coming for us soon!

Sir Johanius Barleou says 'We had best save our sentiments for later and make haste back to the safety of Katta Castellum!

Lyrra Rutledge says 'Johanius my love! You and your companions have rescued us from those horrible creatures!

Aellana Barleou says 'Dearest brother, how releaved I am to see you again!

As with the trip to the camp, nothing will aggro these NPCs.

When Johanius gets back to the Katta entrance he will stand in the same position next to the left guard. He will then say:

Sir Johanius Barleou says 'Hurry inside the gates ladies I will be in shortly after rewarding the brave individuals that assisted me in your rescue.

Lyrra Rutledge says 'We will see you at home Johanius, please hurry.

Aellana Barleou says 'We will see you at home Johanius, please hurry.

(Note: At this point Johanius' name changes again, to Johanius Barleou the Slay.)

Johanius Barleou the Slay says 'Who is the most fearless [vampyre slayer] of your fellowship?

You say, 'I am the most fearless vampyre slayer'

Johanius Barleou the Slay hands _____ his bloodied stake and rifles through his backpack. 'Here, hand me back my stake and you can have this brand new one that has been enchanted by the Praecantors of the Magus Conlegium.'

Johanius Barleou the Slay says 'On behalf of the citizens of Katta Castellum I extend our gratitude for your assistance in our war with the Coterie of the Eternal Night!
You gain party experience!!

At this point, he despawns and you receive the Stake, which is tradeable but lore. Reward: Johanius Stake of Slaying
Reward: Blood Crusted Stake
