Haven't found a better way that killing Dark Elf Reaver and Dark Elf Corruptor in East Karana.
This was faction for the dark elves in Befallen

At one point, the dungeon of Befallen was inhabited primarily by dark elves. I think it may have been for some kind of special event. They were followers of Lanys T'vyll and on the Primordial Malice faction. There has been no need of this faction since the event ended and they were removed.

Is there any point to this faction? Any quests or NPCs? Is this faction really the faction of followers of daughter of Innoruuk(can never spell his name right).
Faction lowers

When you do the exterminator rat quest this faction goes down. I guess the casters in neriak don't care about the rodents infesting thier own city.

The Neriak casters (other than the Necros) are on a faction called The Spurned. I'm pretty sure that there aren't any NPCs on this faction any more, although there once were.

They were rebels of a sort, so there are many quests that affect this faction and other Neriak factions, and usually in opposite directions.

So, is there a benefit for Maxing out your Primordeal Malice Faction?

None, whatsoever. There is only one NPC in the game that is still on this faction, and she is completely useless.

Lanys T'Vyll And Her Story

It has been covered indeed that Lanys T'Vyll, the person who has started the Primordial Malice faction, is indeed the daughter of Innoruuk. However there is more to this tale than just this.

Lanys T'Vyll was born under Queen Cristanos Thex, who was at one time the Fier'Dal Queen along with King Naythox Thex who was the Fier'Dal King, after being impregnated by Innoruuk, who had taken up a Teir'Dal form.

Lanys T'Vyll excelled through the ranks and it had been proven that she was indeed the daughter of their lord Innoruuk, though King Naythox Thex boomed with envy and jealousy, knowing one day she would surely usurp power from him and take Neriak under her rule. Therefore she sought to defame him, though was held at bay by Xon Quexil - the Necromancer guild leader and quite possibly the most powerful living Necromancer on Norrath.

During the war between the Koada'Dal and Teir'Dal, Lanys T'Vyll and Firiona Vie actively sought each other down in an attempt to destroy each other. Then, the two armies found each other in the peaceful forest of Kithicor Wood - named after the Ranger Kithicor who has kept it safe for generations from the Shra'Lok Orcs. When the two armies met they charged and fought viciously.

Lanys T'Vyll called upon her father, Innoruuk, to assist in the battle and that he did, though Firiona Vie and her forces still managed to turn Lanys and her horde. However it came at a heavy toll, and the forest was devastated, the dead from the battle rising every night to continually fight one another in an endless macabre of death and destruction.

Unto this also the Plane of Hate was made accessible by mortals, and for her failure in the battle Innoruuk tasked Lanys with gaining a perspective of the liched Emperor Venril Sathir, and forging an alliance with him. When Emperor Sathir kidnapped Firiona Vie with the help of Admiral Danak, Lanys T'Vyll rushed over to assist in interrogating and punishing her, hoping to redeem herself in the eyes of her father.

In this process Mayong Mistmoore began his own alliance with Emperor Sathir against the Dragons of the Claws of Veeshan for reasons we do not know at this time (or at least I do not know). Ater making the Drachnids, a sickening mixture between a Teir'Dal and a spider, Venril Sathir grew intrigued, and he was taught to cross an Iksar with a Scorpion to make the Skorpickus (sp?).

Mistmoore grew greatly in love with Lanys T'Vyll, who felt vice versa (or at least in lust with one another). However their relationship was an insideous one and they constantly used one another. Firiona Vie, with the assistance of the general who had helped win the day at the Battle of Bloody Kithicor, and several other adventurers, escaped the grasp of Emperor Sathir and fled back to Faydwer. Lanys T'Vyll took off immediately, and Mayong Mistmoore fled to his castle stronghold in an attempt to garner an assault or at least an operation to reacquire her.

The Vampire Lord remember has an unending hatred for Innoruuk, who cursed him into being the vampire he is now. He was once a powerful High Elven necromancer, who was later abducted by Innoruuk and transformed. Now his only solice comes in his music.

Lanys T'Vyll hunted down Firiona Vie as best she could, and returned to Neriak to garner allies. In an attempt to defame her, King Naythox Thex conjured the Avatar of Hate, to accuse Lanys. This, who stood in the form of an impossibly handsome Teir'Dal, did so, stating she was responsible for Firiona Vie's escape. Xon Quexil however crushed this masquerade with a firm hand and demanded that Naythox never again toy with the powers of sorcery.

Queen Cristanos warned her daughter that should she not acquire Firiona Vie quickly she could do nothing to hold back the power of King Naythox. Therefore, after praying to the God of Fear, Cazic-Thule, for days and even weeks, he answered with his own Avatar of Fear placed in the Lesser Faydarks (might have been Greater though, but I believe it was the Lesser). Tunare however countered this divine intervention, unwilling to interfere until another god themselves stepped in and attempted to shift the balance of power with divinity rather than mortality.

The two battled and Firiona Vie was wounded, though Cazic Thule's creation was forced to flee in the process. Lanys T'Vyll was put further to shame, and in this case King Naythox demanded her exhiled from the city of Neriak for decimating and exhausting Imperial forces and devoting herself to other deities. Setting up a base of power in the lost citadel of Takish-Hiz (Befallen) which was the capitol of the lost Elven Empire...where Innoruuk himself stole King Naythox and Queen Cristanos.

Holding the undead at bay, Lanys seduced an army of various races across Norrath and brought them to this citadel. However King Naythox found of his and launched a small strike force to root her out and for the first time in the history of Neriak, Xon Quexil was powerless. After a long and blood-filled fight, Lanys T'Vyll was sent reeling, scorned in the eyes of Neriak and an outcast to her father.

Now do bare in mind however that long, long before this, with the loss of Firiona Vie the first time, Innoruuk held Mistmoore directly responsible. Knowing how the only thing he had left that he enjoyed was his music, he brought him back to the Plane of Hate, and twisted him and forced him to forever please Innoruuk with dark, gothic music. This infuriates Mayong Mistmoore, who is now known as the Maestro of Rancor, to no end, though he is bound to obey.

However that should answer your question (now that I just gave a very, very brief overview of the LAnys situation) as to why she hates and despises the Dark Elves of Neriak, and why Innoruuk hates and despises her. She does however plan to overthrow the Prince of Hate, and rule in his stead with her lover, Mayong Mistmoore.

I'm curious as to your history sources as they contradict what's posted on Everquest's own site.

The dark elves were created from the Koada'Dal (High Elves) taken from the city of Takish-Hiz. The current high elven king is King Tearis Thex.

Lanys T`Vyl is the child of a dark elf priestess named Vendela G`Kal.

The Everquest RolePlaying Game supplement Realms of Norrath: Freeport states the current king and queen of Neriak are not the original rulers but usurpers who have taken on their names. Though I wouldn't necessarily count this as canon.

As for the rest I haven't seen too much detail on Mistmoore to fact check you.

The EQ role-playing game also contradicts what you say about The Maestro of Rancor. The Maestro's story actually is tied to the bard Epic, the Singing Short Swo-rd.

As for the EQ RPG being canon, I've always thought of it as such simply because it's never directly contradicted game lore in the past. However, it is somewhat obsolete, or at least set in a pre-LoY time period, as Grobb is still around. This could change at some point, though.

I've been killing DE guards in Neriak and my faction with PM could not get any better. I know it's Lanys faction, but who else? What other NPC's are on this faction, and what is it for? I'm a Wood Elf druid, so not sure if being maxed will help me any. :)

At the time I am writing this there are no known members of this faction currently in the game.

That may change, of course, as storyline events unfold.

Hard work

on my druid..I was determined to get this faction for some reason, just seemed cool heh..after long killing DE wizzies in 3rd gate..

Your faction standing with TheDead cannot possibly get any worse!
Your faction standing with QueenCristanosthex cannot possibly get any worse!
Your faction standing with KingAythoxthex cannot possibly get any better!
Your faction standing with KeepersoftheArt cannot possibly get any better!
Your faction standing with EldritchCollective cannot possibly get any better!
Your faction standing with PrimordialMalice cannot possibly get any better!

Good factions to get up I guess if your a good race, anyway, ive found a few people who conned dub to me con high ally to me..interesting what u can find, like some wiz trainer in Rathe conned ally to me

To the best of my knowledge, there are no DE wizards in 3rd gate. the neriak 3rd gate is the home of the dead (necro's and sk's) who arent on very good terms with the other acrane casters, so it doesnt seem very likely that one would be there. (although i think there should be someone there since they put a spy right in front of our guild hall) secondly just based on the faction hits it would again imply that your killing a necro and not a wizzy since killing a wizzy would not lower dead faction (it would likely raise it)

Who exactly are these people? Are they dark elves? Allakhazam doesn't have them in his faction list. I've been doing quests in Neriak with my enchanter, and I want to know now so that I know what I'll have to avoid in the future. Thanks
PM factions
# Jan 02 2002 at 4:46 AM Rating: Decent
As a Teir`Dal, Sol Ro worshipping wizard, I have only been able to get to amiable with PM. I can now train at the wizard trainer in the Rathe Mountains, and I can now actually read the letter of recommendation from the Captain. I still however cannot get any response from Izera N'kar (should be ` not ' Verant :P ) from turning in the note to her. Was trying to give the note to her today, but she wasn't spawning at loc 0,0 in Sro as usual. Curious tho, at night time, I can "hear" her footfalls where she spawns, but I can't "see" her, even with See Invis on.

Of note: Verant finally fixed the faction names for the King and Queen of Neriak. Correctly spelled now as Cristanos Thex, and Naythox Thex. Killing Gix now yields the properly spelled names. (WTG Verant for misspelling a Royal name for almost 3 years). Someone should alert Illia and Allakhazam that the King of Neriak isn't named Aythox Thex, and the faction names should be changed on their respective sites.

I'll go now to Neriak and hail the guards with the question "who is King" to verify that his name is spelled correctly. Furthermore "who is Queen" should yield hopefully "fixed" results.

Curious tho that Lisvan and Evin are wizards.. You would think that killing them would hurt Spurned faction (or Indigo Brotherhood), tho I can't travel amongst the Dead anymore, I am still ally with Indigo Brotherhood. Something tells me that there will be a deep rut in the relations between the Dead and the Spurned sometime soon.. I'm thinking Naythox has an ace up his sleeve. Both the King and the Queen have been seen in the past year on the Innoruuk server. The plot thickens..

I was raising my faction with The Dead not too long ago, soon after Lanys' death. And in doing the fire beetle eye quest, in Third Gate, this faction kept dropping.

I had to assume it was Lanys' followers, and come to find out it was. However, I have recently done the fire beetle eye quest, and now this faction no longer drops.

Has anyone else seen this, or has the faction come back maybe?

I have been killing these WIZARDS (yes they are wizards.. those who say they are not havent killed them) and i keep getting the message that my faction with them cannot possibly get any higher.

once again unless you are a warrior there is no need to reraise your faction with the indigo brotherhood they are not the guards and you can easily go to the necro guild with out worry. besides in the actual guild hall there are only two members of the indigo brotherhood in neraik. one is the brothel in 3rd gate ambassador rylan and another in forgein quarters at the bar near the soul binder. his name is rolynn b'div. rylan is about lvl 25 and rolynn is about 10. i wouldnt really wory about rolynn as he's only lvl 10 and rylan is out of the way. you'd actually have to him (i think he likes the ogre in the brothel) so unless you're a de warrior there isnt that much reason to fix it

necro guild in neriak is on The dead faction.

Since you like crushbone, start killing the elves there until your faction gets to dubious, then kill halflins in Nek forest and turn in helmets 4 at a time to Narex in indigo guild.

next time watch your faction!

RE: This Faction

*sighs, and begins to cry* Lanys T'Vyl is the daughter of Innoruuk God of Hate. She was leader of the dark elves till she was defeated by the Champion of Tunare Frionia Vie, after which she was outcast. Primordial Malice is trying to bring her back from the plane of hate. What i want to know is, where the hell are they?

Since it was just added, perhaps this is a new Luclin faction. A lot of things are appearing in the game now in preparation of Luclin (like adding the "VAH" race and the "BST" class to existing items in the game).
