Pking elves in this Gfay will lower all elf faction! I dueled a few meanies in Gfay and they died... Guard faction was easily fixed by killed orcs in cb but merchants is hard...
Faction increase

If I do the Emerald Warrior's quest, does the faction go up significantly or will it take a lot of work?

Any info on this will be greatly appreciated

It will take a lot of work - I've heard that doing this quest will increase the faction by 1 point and you would need 3000 hits to get from scowl to ally.

I have not been able to raise this faction yet, but i will work on it as soon as I am
back in GFay

for those people who were not aware, the banker is on the merchant faction. some of you are probably shaking your heads because the merchants con dubious to you while the banker is threatning or ready to attack. the answer is simple. some time ago verant made all a faction min for all merchants. no merchant can ever con below dubious. but they still keep track of faction. its kinda confusing but the only way to get the banker to like you is by doing the four quest that give merchant faction (which is a pain to do) im a dark elf wizard and im still having a hard time raising merchant faction up. i wish they would make it a bit easier raise faction with them cuz right now its really hard to raise it.

There are only four quests in which you can raise Kelethin Merchant faction.

Shark meats.
Warrior items.
Freeing slaves in CB (High elf and wood elves only).
And The kilij's Plans.

There are NO NPC's in which you can kill... And raise faction with the Merchants there, kill all the orcs you want. Yer only gunna raise faction with the warriors, guards and Faydark champions. Muffin quest, orc hatches... Go nuts. Ain't gunna raise the merchant faction. Dubious is one of the longest factions. It takes along time to raise your faction from Dub to Appre, so don't get run down by it... The quests that you CAN do... Only raise the faction a little teeny tinny bit. So you have to do it more times then anyone would like to. But, if you really want to raise it. You have to keep doing them. I'm a Dark elf Warrior. Yes, a DE warrior. And I can buy and sell in Kelethin from doing these quests. I raised my faction with the Emerald warriors guild... And then did the crappy quests. I handed in over 200 spiderling eyes, ruined wolf pelts, bone chips and bat furs. Not to mention the 60 some odd shark meats. before I got anywhere with them. So good luck <smiles>

It's impossible to get Merchant faction UP if u have killed a ELF in GFay, if u are from PVP servers.. it's a bug that is not fixed.. how i know this?

I have killed 2000 ORCS, free over 60 Slaves (no kiddin) i have done this for 3 month and not a single results.. all i can do is go to Warrior guild in kelthin.. that's the only merchant that exxept's me.. the other i bugg!

If u have Succided making up faction for killing ELF in GFay, plz tell.. cause i can't belive it

It's not impossible. First of all, Kelethin Merchants is not one of the factions raised by killing orcs. Secondly, freeing only 60 slaves simply isn't going to be enough to affect that faction.

I am a 17 Iksar Warrior.

I have spent about half of my /played time working solely on faction in the GFay area.

I have killed thousands of orcs, done the warrior quest about 30-40 times, orc hatchets at least 10-15 times, muffins for Pandos a few hundred times), orc runner pouches 3-5 times, turned in over 100 pixie dusts, freed about 30 slaves, etc, etc.

I am amiable to Kelethin, Felwithe and Kaladim guards. I am dubious to all merchants except the Warrior Merchant. I am KOS to the Banker, the Druids, the Rangers, and the Bards. ..and yes... I probably killed an aggro slave or two in CB at some point in my past, if I had known, I would have let myself die instead.

I would agree that most, if not all of those quests which claim to raise Kelethin Merchant faction, in fact, only give you the message, but do not adjust the faction. Keep in mind, you have to have Share Wolf to do most of this, which I have had thanks to a friend of mine. Without that (or equivalent), there is no pixie dust, orc hatchet, muffins for Pandos, etc. quest. You are essentially stuck.

Thanks to Verant's choices regarding faction hits and the bugs previously mentioned, I will probably delete my Iksar warrior and start another character. It's a shame that you cannot play a character you like because of this kind of stuff.

if you do any quest that says it gives a faction hit, the most it would take is 3000 times to go up to ally. that's quite a task, but it is possible.

I have a gnome Shadow Knight and can run around in Kelethin but collecting CB belts while killing Orcs doesn't do me any good if I can't get into Kaladim to turn them in to the dwarf there. So when I go to butcherblock i con the guards and they look at me threateningly - the question is - am I KOS to the guards and if so how do i get my faction up enough so that they aren't I would love to turn in the CB belts for the exp and faction points. Any Help would be appreciated. You can email me if you would like at and make the subject Faction in Kaladim and I will look at those. Thanks

You can get non-KOS to dwarven guards by ... killing CB orcs. Stormguard faction.

Of course, if you wreck your Craknek Warrior faction by turning in CB belts, you may find yourself unable to wander Oggok freely - which, as an evil class, you may want to do.
I need some help

I'm a Wood Elf Druid and the Merchants still con 'Indifferently' and 'Amiably'.

I fianally made good with the guards, and the merchants do not seem to attack me, but the banker is still try8ing to kill me. Can someone help me please??/
#Anonymous, Posted: Apr 09 2001 at 8:08 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I've finally got my DE Necro Amiable to guards, merchants, Warriors. The banker seems to be on the Druid faction. If I get wolf form, the banker is dubious, the same wolf form gives me dubious to druids, still kos to bards and scouts.

Killing elven slaves in CB also lowers!
One other faction raising quest
# Aug 27 2000 at 5:21 PM Rating: Excellent
Another way to raise faction with the merchants is to do the Emerald Warrior's (Wood Elf Warrior's Guild) Quest given out by Regren.

You have to collecect:
1 Bat Fur
1 Spiderling Eye (the blue one)
1 Ruined Wolf Pelt
1 Bone Chips

This quest is just as time consumeing, if not more, then tbe key quests in Crushbone,

You also gain faction with the merchants of Felwithe (High Elves)
# Aug 17 2000 at 4:05 PM Rating: Excellent
Killing CB orcs raises faction with the wood elf and high elf guards and woodie warriors and a few others excepting the bards and scouts of tunare (woodie rogues.)... as a troll, I've gained general elf faction as high as AMIABLE with all except bards, rogues, and the magic casters of felwithe (imagine a troll entering the paladin's guild in felwithe freely haha!). Raising the merchant's faction is HARD since last night, out of 200 slaver kills, only 4 key 18s and 19s dropped (those that will raise kelethin and felwithe merchant factions.)

# Apr 02 2001 at 7:48 AM Rating: Decent
you can do the muffins for pandos quest in WFP once you get to dubious to the general public of the Feydarks, it'll get you to warmly I think and it is cheap.
# Aug 02 2000 at 7:46 AM Rating: Decent
It is correct that you get better faction by freeing slaves in crushbone the keys to free them can be obtained by killing the orc slavers and you get some exp and a few coppers or even a silver piece .... hope it helped

Does this merchant faction help with the bankers?
RE:better prices
# Jul 29 2000 at 8:56 PM Rating: Decent
I'm not completely sure, but i think by freeing some of the wood elf slaves you get faction with the kelethin merchants (the ones in crushbone).
RE:better prices
# Aug 21 2000 at 9:19 AM Rating: Default
This is correct. Freeing woodelf slaves improves your Kelethin merchant faction (also improves with Felwithe merchants too).
better prices
# Jul 05 2000 at 7:38 AM Rating: Decent
I would like to raise faction with as many merchant groups as possible for obvious reasons(better prices.) I have discovered that the Kelethin merchants are completely unimpressed by orc killing. What do they find impressive?
RE: better prices
# Aug 19 2000 at 3:26 PM Rating: Default
I know what will get them impressed. Alls ya got to do is do the Newbie warrior quest (everyone can do it) its very easy and i gets the fraction up with kelethin Merchants
What nebie warrior quest???

Emerald Warriors' Items (wood elf warrior's guild)

Talk to Regren inside the Emerald Warriors Guild.

He will ask you to bring him 4 items to prove your worth:

spiderling eye

ruined wolf pelt

bone chips

and bat fur.

He will reward you with xp, faction, money, and an item (often tattered armor).

Your faction improves with the Merchants of Kelethin, Emerald Warriors and Merchants of Felwithe and goes down with Indigo Brotherhood.
