Eldritch Collective

Climbing up to the Library Mechanimagica can be dangerous in the dark, but gnomish spellcasters do this when quite young where they seek the yellow robes offered by Juline Urncaller the Enchanter Guildmaster, Wuggan Azursphere the Magaican Guildmaseter and Tobon Starpyre the Wizard Guildmaster. The Eldritch collective is actively opposed to the Evil Gnomes of the Dark Reflection and the Dark Elf Necromancers and Shadowknights of The Dead in Neriak. They are allied with the Gem Choppers and support the gnomish King Ak'Anon.

The following quests require Eldritch Collective faction

Quest Name Minimum Faction Required Maximum Faction Allowed
Air Tight Box Amiable
Basilisk Tongues Kindly
Bozinite Pestle Amiable
Bugglegupp Amiable
Minotaur Horns Dubious
Telescope Lenses Amiable
Tergon's Spellbook Amiable
The Telescope Indifferent
Toko's Head Amiable

20 points per 4 tongues

Went on a faction rampage for these Gnomes. Collected hundreds of basilisk tongues and was turning them in. I counted 10 tasks ( 40 tongues) to get through apprehensive and another 10 tasks ( 40 more ) to get through indifferent. Woth both App and Indiff being 200 point spans, this worked out to 20 points per task. It also means 800 point sread for amiable where the normal is 700.

Found recently that the lil necro lady in west karana, Obtenivy biddlets or something, raises eldritch collective. MY druid who got kos to them started killing her whenever she was on track.

Since that change to light blue cons, she is always light blue to my 56 druid.
How to play a Bertoxx nonnecro spellcaster?
# Oct 08 2001 at 10:51 PM Rating: Decent
Does anyone know how a starting 'evil' (Bertoxxulous) mage, wiz, or enchanter is supposed to be able to ever buy our spells? The starting faction is too low to buy them in the library, they aren't for sale in Mines of Malfunction, and thus far I've been unable to get any of the faction raising quests. My question is, why even *put* Bertoxx non-necro spellcasters in the game if they are unable to even have a way to get their L 1 spells or raise faction enough to do so? The earliest faction adjust spell for chanters is at L 8, and then, Catch-22, you have to be able to *buy* it to use it...

The faction adjustments for killing Steamfont Minotaurs are as follows:

+King Ak'Anon
-Meldrath (like you care)

This is one of the few +Gem +King adjustments that doesn't come with -Dark Reflection; very handy for us Gnecros. Also note that there is a seperate graphic for the horn - you can see them carrying it.

Faction Boost Quest

Reading through the quest list, it looks like the (long, drawn out, tedious, and slow) Keybox quest from the Gemchopper's Guild raises Eldritch Collective faction as well...
I am going to try it in the early am tomorrow, and see just how much it does, as I need to get better than dubious, myself - also gonna try out my new 29th level DoTs on the minos, nothing better than slow cooked steaks...
Faction Boosting with Eldritch Collectiv
# Aug 01 2000 at 5:00 AM Rating: Decent
Yes, killing Gix (or helping anyone killing him) in WCommons does give positive Faction with this group... but it make take MANY kills to increase it enough for what you wish. I started as Human and Apprehensive to Brona Frugin and after 50+ kills of Gix, still con apprehensive... either the facts about Frugin being part of Eldritch is wrong, or else I am too highly damaged in faction to gnomes to EVER bring it up.

I believe if you kill kizdean Gix in West Commons he will give you Eldritch Collective Faction. Have not tried it but that is what i hear. He hangs out by the toll booth, which is in front of the Befallen Entrance. He is a DE Mage, so you will probably also take negative DE faction if you kill. I believe he is around level 18.

I have/had the same problem too. However, if memory serves me, there are two ways to raise faction with them. 1) Kill the Minotaurs in that zone (LOTS OF THEM!). 2) Release Retlon Brenclog from slavery.
As for the minotaur horns, you got unlucky. From the first 2 I killed I got 1 horn.
Another way to raise faction is to group with classes that have faction increase spells such as Bards.

I have this problem too, can't get faction high enough to be given any of these quests. I'm hoping one of the quest givers for one of these quests has Gemchopper faction or something so we can get the quest. Probably not though, this one may just be broken or gnome only.

As for mino horns, they do sometimes drop from the minotaurs in the Gorge of King Xorbb (Beholder's maze) near Rivervale. Even though those minotaurs have different faction I'm going to try those horns to see if anything works.

One other thing to try--go to Crushbone and release Retlon Brenclog from slavery. I don't remember what factions that adjusts, but it may do the trick.
Raising Faction

I'd like to try and raise my faction with this group, but to date I haven't been able to locate a single quest I can get or mob I can kill that'll raise my faction with them. Yes, I know the infected rat liver quest is supposed to raise faction with them, but I can't get them to give me the quest. I was hoping to try the mino horn quest, sicne even though the guy for it won't talk to mer about the qwuest you can often hand in things for the faction anyway, as long as they're not too unhappy with you...but I've killed about 30-odd minos so far and haven't found even *one* horn to turn is. Is this quest broken?
