Quest on Shadowed Man Faction

The quest Hassan mentioned is called Aid Ghaib Against the Kobolds & is given by a shadowed man named Ghaib Zilal in The Caverns of Exile (SolC).

The reward is indeed a nice 1HS with a 150dd proc.

Ghaib's Flame-Forged Longsword
Weight: 8.0 Size: MEDIUM
Damage: 13 Delay: 20
Ratio: 1.538 Amazing
Damage Bonus: 13 (lvl 65)
Comparative Efficiency: 97
Offhand Efficiency: 40

Str: +10 Sta: +10 Wis: +5 Int: +5 HP: +50 Mana: +50
Weapon Skill: One Hand Slash
Classes: Ranger Paladin Shadowknight Bard Rogue Warrior
Races: All Races
Slot 1: Type 4

Recommended Level: 50

Effect: Inferno Blade
Type: Combat

While Alla posts the effect as Servant's Bolt, the effect on the item, IN GAME, as of today is Inferno Blade. Both are 150 DD procs, the noteable difference, IMO, being the Resist: Fire (-100) on Servant's Bolt VS the Resist: Fire (-25) on Inferno Blade.

The item link in game states:
Inferno Blade
Required Level: 0
Spell Effect: Engulfs your weapon with flame causing 150 damage to your target.

Definitely something to think about before ruining your shadowed man faction whether it be for xp, jboots, or something else (granted you got some uber friends to help you, the quest is no walk in the park). Seeing as how it's no drop though, no worries for casters who might need to reset their specialization skills via the Respecialization quest & vice versa, the classes that can equip the sword will not be specializing in any arcane skills. :)

No known reason

For one, there is NO KNOWN REASON of having a good faction with these guys. This faction is totally useless, and to annihilate your Temple of Sol Ro faction in doing so is foolish. I STRONGLY reccomend that you do NOT raise this faction by destroying Temple of Sol Ro faction.

You have been warned...:)

This is no longer true.

There is a Quest in Caverns of Exile that requires you at least be able to speak to an NPC on Shadowed Men faction, and the end result of that quest is a very nice 1HS that procs a 100 point DD.
Buying Fire Opals Lowers It

For Enchanters or others who buy Fire Opals from Genni on the third floor, right hand side of the Temple of Solusek Ro (btw she will take 55 p, does not have to be gold, which she says) it lowers your Shadowed me faction.
They seem to always con Scowls ready to attack, but not attack until their faction has been lowered. My druid ran right up to them accidently (using old map, doh) and no attack.
