Kael Armor Quests

Warmly faction plus collaboration was sufficient to MQ Kael armor. So you don't need more than 300 points into ally to do these quests. I'm not sure how high warmly I was, so it could be even less than that. So just go 6 dwarf heads into ally, and you should be fine :)
raising kromzek faction

i'm writing this in hopes of giving people a little insight on what to do to get faction up as quickly as possible.

first of all i'm a level 64 druid in a large guild that is progressing in pop, st, ssra.

the very basic thing you can do is collect coldain heads and kill dwarves and wolves in GD. the best place to collect heads i think is the mines in GD, in the southeast corner of the zone. invis past the guards in the mines and kill the velium/coldain miners. they drop a head i would say 33% of the time. you take kromrif/kromzek hits for killing them, though the kromrif hit is bigger. you can also slaughter the wandering dwarves and wolves near thurg. kill them single or quad them if you're a druid or wizzy. do not pull the guards from inside the huts because they hit harder and summon. dwarves and wolves also give a bigger faction hit to kromrif than kromzek.

take the heads you've collected and turn them in to the kromrif recruiter in kael on the EW side. you'll need dubious faction with kromrif or use the invis trick to become indifferent. put the heads in the trade window, have someone invis you, con the recruiter to see that you're indifferent, and hit trade. classes with hide can simply put the heads in the trade window, click hide, and hit trade. you get faction for the heads but the kromrif hit is much greater than the kromzek one.
keep turning in heads until you're ally to kromrif. turning in heads after this is not worth it.

next you will want to kill dragons. the easiest are the courtyard trash in skyshrine but they also provide a very small faction hit. try to tag along on a wtov raid. add a helping lick to any of the named dragons and you'll receive a big hit. charm classes can also solo yeldima in WW. just charm a velium hound and send it in to attack yeldima. she doesn't aoe or dispell making her very soloable. for druids CH the pet occasionally. for enchanters maybe rune the pet every so often. she gives a good hit and drops decent loot. she spawns every 72 minutes so in the meantime you can kill trash in SS or something else.

by killing dragons you'll eventually hit dubious with kromzek. turn in all your extra coldain heads to captain bvellos in the bank in kael for additional hits to both kromzek and tormax. you can also run the mercenary supply quest which is quick and only requires running into WL. by the time you are ally with kromzek you should also be max ally with kromrif and at the very least close to ally with king tormax.

dain and yelinak hits are also very good but mainly affect king tormax faction. i do not suggest killing dwarves in icewell as they give similar hits to the ones in GD. good kromrif hit and an only ok hit for kromzek.

good luck everyone

I don't think the dorfs in GD are an efficient use of time to get Kromzek faction. I think you have to go to skyshrine for that. It took me nearly a week to figure this out. I was Max KOS and I had been farming dorfs for about a week without it budging.

Then another fellow that was max KOS came and started factioning with me and we decided to go to skyshrine because there were mobs we could XP on at least so it wasn't a total waste of time. We both got to threatening that night so i don't think the dorfs do very much to help your kromzek faction vis-a-vis skyshrine mobs.

ALSO save your coldain heads for bvellos's bounty and not for the kromrif recruiter. I think Bvellos bounty gives a much bigger Kromzek faction hit AND Tormax faction hits.

ALSO I read a post recently regarding Claws of Veeshan faction that leads me to believe that Skyshrine kills may have 5 times as much faction hit as a dorf kill. The dorfs give one kromrif and one kromzek faction hit but the dragons give 5 kromzek faction hits. Dain's advisors and guards give even better faction hits (I think 10). The Dain, Yelinak and Velketor give the greatest faction hits.

What can i do
# Apr 26 2003 at 3:31 AM Rating: Decent
What is the fastest way to raise this damn faction...killed dorfs/wolves in GD until i was dubious to frost giants...was still KOS to storm. Killed in SS for 10 hours strait and im STILL scowls to the storm giants. Wtf can i go to raise this faction fast?!?!? Does killing Yelniak only give a KT hit, or does it also give kromzek?
How many!

with worst possible kromrif faction (giants in fm) and ready to attack faction with kael giants how many mobs/hours will i have to kill to be able to do this quest armor
still RTA!!

Originally I bottomed out my Giant faction for Dwarf quest armor. Now I'm trying to switch back. Been killing dwarves for about 15 hours played time on a 54 ogre warrior that can make a kill on average ever 40-60 seconds... you do the math.
Been bottomed out with Dwarves for 4 played hours now and acumulated 80ish heads but I'm still ready to attack with giants.
Any ideas on how many more kills we're talking about.

Kael & Thurg

Yes you can !!! Some quest that make Coldain higher make Claws of Veeshan lower and not thurg. Plus you can go to Temple of Veeshan and kill dragons for giant faction =0)
cannot have good faction with both

coldain and giants of velious are enemies, you cannot have good faction with both
how can I get good faction?
# Sep 08 2001 at 8:37 PM Rating: Decent
I want to be able to get into thurgadin and go into kael, a.k.a. I'm a ranger. Any low level mobs I can kill to get up faction with kael without lowering my faction with thurgadin?
My finding

I went on 2 arena raids and before hand was amiable to Kromrif and Kromzek. I changed my mind on what faction in Velious I wanted so began killing dwarfs again. I have killed TONS of coldain and wolves, am amiable to Kromrif and scowl to Kromzek. So Kromzek is not easy to repair on dwarves. Guess I'll go hit Skyshrine now.
Is kinda silly...

It is kind of silly that killing stuff in SS only raises one of three Giant factions. It is weird to go into Kael and con Warmly to half the population, and Scowling to the other half.

Anyway, this isn't the hard faction to raise; it's the Kromrif that I'm finding a pain in the butt. Well, without destroying my Dorf faction...

To raise this faction, just go hunt in SS for a while. You'll be Warmly within a couple days. To raise Kromrif and Tormax, check out this quest:

It appears to be the best non-dorf hating quest I have found to date.

Are there any quests i can do or mobs I can kill that will raise both The froast and Storm giants faction w/o lowering my Dorf faction? Granted I don't spend anytime in dorftown but I don't want to limit myself as far as the quests I can do (not interested in dragon's quests as they will prolly be even more insane then what's required in the giant and dorf quests).
