Fast, but tedious method

Head to Nektulos Forest and hunt down any halflings you see. All but one (the one has the word Deputy in his name) are Storm Reapers, the druid guild, which directly oppose Unkempt Druids. Slay them to your heart's content, and you bottom out Storm Reapers very quickly, as well as damage other factions associated with the Halflings of Rivervale.

Now, to repair the damaged factions, head into Rivervale and find Blinza Toepopal. Make this macro key:

/pause 5, /targ Blinza
/pause 5, /say I will take the stew
/pause 5, /say I will take the stew
/pause 5, /say I will take the stew
/pause 5, /say I will take the stew

What you'll be doing is the Jillin's stew quest, but adapting Erud's Tonic to this. Aggro her in some way, and make sure you don't accidentally kill her, and run her up to Deputy Lowmot. At this point it really, REALLY helps if your class can root or better yet, snare for a long period of time. Fade aggro, click off invis. Now say to Blinza you'll take the stew once, and give it to Lowmot which opens a trade window.

Click the macro, and this takes some practice, but you automatically target her, and between each phrase you put the LORE bowl into the three remaining trade window slots. So you should have 4 in the trade window, and holding one extra. Click trade, get the faction, then click the bowl you're holding on Lowmot again and hit the macro. Repeat as necessary. Hail Blinza once in a while to keep her in place, or she'll wander back to her spot.

The factions you get repair all the factions you hurt when you hunted in Nektulos, and the Dreadguard Outer faction is easily fixed with stacks of red wine. If by some chance your faction is too low to do the stew quest, a halfling illusion potion may temporarily suffice enough for a while.

I worked to get QRG protected animals up. which bottomed out unkempt so I am back here again. Seems each kill of one of those druids in commons lowers Kithicore Residenst faction by 12.5 points. It was 16 kills to get through indiffernet ( going downwards). then it was 15 more to get thorugh app ( another 200 pts) to dubious. making it 31 kills for 400 points. I call that 13 points per kill.
maxxed out

History of the Unkempt ?
# Oct 26 2004 at 5:46 PM Rating: Decent
Does anyone know the history behind the unkempt ?
It would be nic to know since they seem to oppose Jaggedpine and all thos who allies with Jagged pine. My guess is that they are offspirng of Jagged Pine who had enough of the Fluffy bunny hugging ways of Jagged pine.

Having both factions
# Mar 30 2002 at 10:38 AM Rating: Decent
Me as an ogre started off as KOS to both. But I spent many a day killing treants in South karana and gained a very nice faction with these. I beleive I am at kindly. Then, on my quest to raise faction with Qeynos, I got JaggedPineTreefolk up to ally. So, you can have both of these factions. I find them very helpful because always being mobbed by druids is annoying. Hehe
Simply put

The unkempt druids are an activist group, the type that go around burning logging camps, trashing fur traps, etc. If you are a druid, you will con warmly to them, assuming you haven't killed anything that will lower faction with them. The Unkempt Druids and the Jaggedpine Treefolk strive for the same cause, but have different methods of obtaining it. The problem with this faction, is that no one has ever seen Master Jale Phlintoes, the presumed guildmaster of the Unkempt Druids. Probably from laziness on the part of Verant in not completing an obvious quest. If you kill Linaya Sowlin in North Karana, give her heart to the hermit, you will raise your faction with the Unkempt Druids, and the hermit will ask if you want to join the Unkempt Druids. When you say 'I want to join the Unkempt Druids', he will reply with, 'Wait here. Master Jale Phlintoes will be here shortly.'

This is a strange faction. I have killed nothing that would raise my faction with them, yet my druid cons amiable, my necro used to be apprehensive until I slaughtered the wholesale :)~

Anyway, anyone know what is up with these treehuggers?

Something seems way off here to me. It does seem like the Unkempt Druids are an "evil" faction, but somehow I con amiably (and warmly) to them. I've never killed any monster that gave this faction, not even once. Maybe it has something to do with the screwy hermit faction. I killed him dozens of times with my druid, from about 19 to 24. He never conned anything less than amiable in all that time. So, I assumed there was no faction hit, and quite possibly this raised my Unkempt Druid faction. There are many holes in the faction system -- this seems like one of them.

If you are an evil race and you like Druids to tp you might want to consider going and kill some unkempt druids... that's what my necro did. I like SK and i hate having to invis when being tped to nk, so i went to Rathe Mountains and killed lots of these unkempt druids, now the treants won't kill me.
Unkempt druid=evil me think.

I can t be certain but sound that having unkempt druid faction reduced is not that much of a matter . When u look at what killing will raise your faction with em 90% of the NPC writen are druid NPC so i d say unkempt druid or sort of evil druid like brownie.The only quest i found to make QRGprotected animal faction raise, raised also jaggedpinetreefol faction (surefall glade druid) and some other faction around qenios so i m almost sure that unkempt druid is a faction oposed to druid because they evil. In this case of course i m almost certain that u won t be KOS at any ring with having this faction reduced (treant killing raise unkempt druid treant are at NK ring one more prove heh)

Hello all,

If I was to kill "Narra Tanith", would this affect my faction with the Druids?

I killed the hermit in SK for AGES and never got a faction message. He'd say the Unkempt Druids would avenge him, but there is no faction adjustment.
# Jan 09 2001 at 1:00 AM Rating: Default
I killed the hermit in SK and it lowered this faction.
# Jan 08 2001 at 5:27 AM Rating: Default
I find this a bit confusing when you are looking for what will raise factions and you click on the mob or NPC and find that it auctally lowers the factions for the unkempt druids not raise them. Also aren't the unkempt druids to do with the druids at the druid rings that we get ports at?

No, I don't think so. I'm not positive, but I think the Unkempt Druids are pretty much confined to the Rathe Mountains zone, with the exception of a few isolated individuals like the hermit in South Karana. It seems to be easy enough to avoid them if you manage to lower your faction with them into the KOS range, and frankly the quests they give have lousy rewards considering the time and effort involved.
