killing dragoon also lowers indigo brotherhood. but that was easy to fix. just do the fire beetle eyes / bone chips task 15 times for each kill. Sure that lowers steel warriors ( handing in milk to mojax fixes that and its already on the cycle coming up) and killing aqua goblins in butcherblock fixes emerald warriors.
3 years but max ally finally

First, you need to understand that I dont want to lower any factions. When I first started my toon, I planned to raise every possible faction and this one has been the most time consuming faction of them all ( out of the ones I did that is). There are 562 factions listed on alakazams faction page. some are duplicates, some are different names for the same faction. some maybe i missed. I ended up with 251 factions you cannot raise. I chose 26 to lower ( so i could raise more). I am ignoring 47 and so far have not chosen which way to go on 2. I have maxxed out 224 other factions.

For Queen, I was doing fire beetle eye hand-ins - which is mainly for The Dead but it also raises Queen. it also lowers King Naythox Thex, lowers keepers of the arts, lowers eldritch collective and lowers primordial malice. Primordial malice you can ignore - its no longer in the game so i just accepted that it would be max kos. its one of those i chose to lower. Once I turned in enough firebeetle eyes, I would run to freeport and do the note handin task to raise king faction. which lowered priests of marr, clerics of tunare and priests of life. then ran to hand milk to mojax in commons to raise priests of marr back up which lowered dismal rage ( and freeport militia). firebeetle eyes in freeport raised that back up butlowered knoights of truth - so a fast run to commons again to kill orcs fixes that. head off to felwithe to hand in bone chips fixing clerics of tunare - stopping off in the mage guild to hand in batwings to raise up keepers of the arts ( but that lowered the dead). off to qeynos to fix priests of life with bonechips to lashun novashine, which lowered bloodsabers so run to west karana qand hand gold to guard shilster to fix that up. but that lowered guards of qeynos so i would spend an hour or so in blackburrow to kill gnolls. From there i head to Erudin and do the inert potion task to Toresian to fix freeport militia. Zipping over to ak anon, I hand in basilisk tongues to fix up eldritch collective ( which lowers dark reflection and the dead). do the female rat and brittle skeletons task to fix dark reflection up ( but that lowers eldritch collective, gemm chopopers and king ak anon). I raise gem choppers and king akanon and eldritch collectoive back up with more tongues, killing aqua goblins and some minotaurs which leaves dark reflections just 1 task short of max. The dead also ends up slightly lower than max, otherwise I would have to start all over again on this cycle.

I did this for 3 years. This yeari got sick of it. Was starting to think the faction could not be maxxed out at all. So i took my high elf wixzard and killed Dragoon Szorn in Lesser Faydark numberous times to see what would happen. and HE maxxed out queen. So... I changed tactics and killed Dragoon 4 times to max queen, but that lowered king and off I went on the cycle
where can you check this faction?

I have been trying to max this faction out and as yet am unsuccessful. If there was some NPC somewhere I could check /con and at least see if I was ally or whatever I would get some indication how far I have yet to go.

Kill the Dragoon in Lesserfay to raise this faction
# Dec 19 2002 at 6:18 AM Rating: Decent
The title said it all. When you kill the Dragoon (DE) in Lesser Fay, you can raise your faciton with the Queen and the Dead, and King Tear's Thex, but will lower your faction with King Nay Thex.

It's just on the topic of Queens. It's also because I heard she's a Dark Elf or something.
Ogre Warrior

Hey, I'm trying to make an Ogre Warrior with almost perfect Factions that can go anywhere. So far I'm having problems with this faction. I am an Ally to the merchants, guards kill Dark Elves over me, (Inner and Outer guards), just This Queen and King Faction. I think I'm going to have to trash the kings faction for a while and bring it up later. Because everything to bring up the Queen's faction brings down the kings. But the Kings faction doesn't all work that way. There are a LOT more things you can do. Most of the quests to bring up his also bring up Faction with Steel Warriors and other GOOD Factioned races. Which I find really strange. Any tips for an Ogre Warrior lookin to boost my factions? I'm lvl 17.

Queen Christanios Thex
# Mar 30 2002 at 10:31 AM Rating: Good
You can go read my post in the King Aythox Thex area, and you probably will enjoy it because it goes into detail.

Anyway, these two split apart because of rivalry intentions.

Queen Christanios Thex now has to do with the dead, necromancy and evil intentions.

King Aythox Thex has to do with the practical arcane, wizardry, etc. and sword fighting, warriors + rogues, etc.

There IS a way to get ally with both factions, I have done it. Just research quests and if you are very determined, then you can do it.
Neriak faction
# Mar 27 2002 at 12:45 PM Rating: Default
I have been exploring the mysetery of Neriak faction for a while, and I have found that there are several interlocking factions working here, and all can be raised without lowering the others except for The Spurned, the non-necro casters of Neriak, they are totally opposite of The Dead faction and you cannot raise their faction without lowering your Dead faction, but raising The Dead faction does not hurt Spurned faction. All of which doesn't really matter anyway, if you are a non-necro DE caster, the dead mean nothing to you anyway, and their faction really only counts in Third Gate, and a little in the commons.
From what I've gathered the various faction combinations are like this:
Dread Guard Outer: Nektulos and Foreign Quarter guards, but some can be found in the Commons. Mostly warrior guild (Indigo Brotherhood) faction, aligned with the King, but DGO has some SKs who are loyal to the Queen, so if you try to raise your DGO faction, some will raise faster than others, since you may still be dubious or apprehensive to The Dead (Necros and SKs). DGO is easy to raise, just kill Halflings in Nektulos. If you are KOS to the DGO, it will take quite a few halflings to get you inside, and once you can get into the Foreign Quarter, be careful about going into the Commons.
Dread Guard Inner: Commons and Third Gate guards. Some are Indigo Brotherhood, but most are The Dead, and some of the ones who guard the Cleric guild are on Cleric faction as well, so you can have one guard on three different factions at once.
Dark Bargainers: the merchants of Neriak, don't ***** this up or you can't transact, and it goes down fast if you kill the wrong NPC.
There are also individual factions in Neriak, but they are inconsequential as far as worrying about raising and lowering, since all pretty much go up unless you hunt inside the city. If you do kill an NPC inside, make sure to have raised your faction first, since one kill could put you over the edge of faction recovery, and some factions can only be raised with quests.
The most important thing is this; Neriak faction really doesn't matter. If you're a DE, then don't worry about it, there are no quests really worth doing past level 20, and few before that. The only decent quest in the whole place is the Regent of Innoruuk Symbol quest at the clerics guild. If you're not a DE, then just get up to the point where you can train if you feel you must train in Neriak. Verant just dropped all development of Neriak quests for some reason in the very early stages of the game, and the King and Queen aren't even to be found, so you're just working on faction with ghosts.
My advice is this, leave Neriak and go hunt somewhere with good loot, and only come back to train. The only time you see high level people in Neriak is to train or buy components that aren't available anywhere else, so that should tell you all you need to know.
Good hunting.

I do not know what faction they are on, but I do know what I did to change it! I am Troll SK, and was dubious to everything and everyone in 3RD Gate...until I handed a backpack full of red wine, 8 stacks, 4 bottle at a time to the scribe in the library. Now I am regarded as an ally by everyone EXCEPT THE DEAD! I still cannot train here! But all the merchants like me! ;)
Queen Whosit?
# Oct 05 2001 at 5:01 PM Rating: Default
So is anyone else confused that running a Necro quest *lowers* your faction with the queen of Neriak?!? I mean, don't the necros kinda rule the joint? Seems a cruel faction hit to take for turning in 10 stupid fire beetle eyes.

I wish I'd checked out the quest in advance because it's probably not a good thing for an SK to lower his faction with his own queen.

Does anyone know how to reverse this faction?

Necro quest will RAISE you faction with the Queen, and LOWER it with the King.

Any idea on WHERE she is? Cuz i have never seen the queen before..nor the king..
The Queen
# May 16 2001 at 9:00 AM Rating: Decent
Queen Christianos Thex is indeed the Queen of the Teir'Dal Empire, and Neriak. She is somewhat opposed to her husband, King Aythox Thex (in game, Naythox Thex)

The Dead (Necromancers and Shadowknights of Neriak) follow her rule.
# Oct 11 2000 at 1:35 PM Rating: Default
Well, I believe Queen Christianos Thex is also worshiped by the Clerics of Innoruk. As a troll warrior that camped in Najena for several levels, I had the unfortunate circumstance to kill the dark elf priestess that occasionally spawns in place of an ogre guard next to the Captain. Now I can't get anywhere near Neriak's third gate without sending the guards around the Cleric guild into an absolute frenzy. I would love to be able to reverse this faction, but I have no idea about how to do it. Any suggestions?

At least that's how the Ghouls outside of the Necro guild in Neriak spelled it. "Kill!! Kill! Kill! For Queen Cristanos" Don't know much else about them except, even though the ghouls are at the entrance to the Necro guild, they Really hate lil level 3 Gnomish Necros... d'oh!
RE: Cristanos
# Jun 10 2001 at 12:56 PM Rating: Default
As a Teir'Dal Shadow Knight, i tell you that our ghouls are there to protect the sanctity of the Lodge of The Dead. Only Dark Elves may pass them with being attacked
RE: Cristanos
# Jun 13 2001 at 5:49 PM Rating: Default
The ghouls are low lvl, teens I think. Anyway I run by them all the time with my human sk and they never attack even though they're scowling.
RE: Cristanos
# Jul 09 2001 at 4:14 PM Rating: Decent
I have successfully destroyed my faction with the Necro/SK guild (Down to ready to attack). The Ghouls, however, are still warmly to me. They can't be on a Neriak faction, no one in Neriak is higher than amiably to me.
RE: Cristanos

The ghouls in Neriak: Third Gate are on NeriakGhoul faction. There is no way to raise it (as far as I know).
RE: Cristanos
# Apr 03 2002 at 5:39 PM Rating: Decent
The Ghouls are on "The Dead" faction, I believe.
RE: Cristanos
# Apr 09 2002 at 3:39 AM Rating: Good
I think the ghouls have their own faction. Look at
# Oct 07 2001 at 3:57 PM Rating: Default
Don't know what faction they're on, but my troll SK was dubious to them when I first started but now I'm warmly to the ghouls, but still dubious to the Dead in general.
