From what I've seen here then, if you are KOS to the CQG, but have good faction with the good guards, even allied, they will still attack you if you aggro a corrupt one.
There is no faction high enough with the good guards that they will attack the bad guard and not you?
(I had kind of hoped this was the case)
#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 25 2001 at 11:09 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Maybe we should ask the Gms to change this thing with the corrupt qeynos guards. Maybe we shouldn't be worrying about CQGs and ask teh Gms to take them out.
Interesting Observation

I have made an interesting observation after killing some of the CQG. I was killing the greens in South Qeynos, and I went to threatening with them, when I had to zone because another guard joined in (good one). Well, I thought I was a goner because I knew Lt. Dagarok (whatever his name is) was on this faction. But I rezoned and he is amiable (the same as my good guard faction). Is this a result of him trying to keep their identity secret or just some bug?

Guard Shilster is in North Karana. Met him once in 40 levels and I'm a Qeynos native too....rare spawn or I'm the worst tracker from Surefall ;-)
Anywho when he conned threateningly I hailed him. Asked me if I wanted some Blackburrow Stout for 5gp. A few key words were in the text about contraband.
He told me where to go when I gave him the cash, so being the reasonable fellow I am, I killed the crooked ******* (must be a part time real estate agent also). Dropped a 'Cracked corrupt guard helm'...any ideas??
Point of this post was to advise that he lowered my Corrupt Qeynos guard faction.

The helm is used in the Investigator's Badge quest out of Qeynos. Click on Interrogator's Badge in the list above and follow related quests, or see the quest list for North Qeynos.

Gnoll scalps may work, but it takes a lot of them to make a difference. I'm an ally to the Qeynos Guards, but con threateningly to the Corrupt Qeynos Guards. I can get to dubious with wolf form, which will save me from an attack while I med in South Qeynos, but I'm almost willing to risk a small hit with the Qeynos Guards just to boost the CQG faction a bit. Lt. Dagarok hasn't ever attacked me, but I know he probably would if I got too close while out of wolf form. The thing I hate is that medding near a CQG brings all the guards on top of you, because once he attacks, the others join in. For now, wolf form helps me avoid this, but it seems like killing anything in the Karanas can bring bad CQG faction. If it ever happens to you, run for the zone, and be thankful it wasn't Dagarok.

To raise Corrupt Qeynos Guard faction without hurting your good Qeynos Guard faction go to Freeport and do the three Coalition of Merchant Folks Illegal quests (Note For Janam, Note For Rebby, and The Frikniller Family) listed above. These can be done at the same time and will raise your faction with the Coalition of Merchants Illegal, the regular Coalition of Merchants, the Freeport Militia (who are corrupt), and the Corrupt Qeynos Guards without lowering your faction with anyone. I went from dubious with the Coalition of Merchants Illegal to ally; it also made me ally with the regular Coalition of Merchants and indifferent with both the freeport Militia and the Corrupt Qeynos Guards - it took about 30 or so runs of these three quests but it was worth it.

You can raise Corrupt Qeynos Guards, Freeport Militia and a few other 'dark' faction by doing the Inert Potion quest in Erudin. Hail Toresian on the top floor of the Erudite palace and do his quest to deliver the potion 2 floors down. The fellow you give the potion to is an impostor, and giving the potion to him raises your faction with no negative hits for the good factions. It seems to be a small faction improvement though. I've done that run up and down those stairs 'til I've been dizzy, and I'm still 'Threatening' to the Corrupt Guards.

Giving the Orc scalps in Highpass Hold to the Captain Ashlan may raise faction with corrupt Qeynos guards. He is often on a rampart overlooking the orc spawn, reached by stairs near the "volunteer" npc.

The putrid skeletons in South Karana are also friendly faction to the CQG. Killing them worsens your faction.

One of the corrupt guards in Qeynos has been confirmed by me to be a Lieutenant that patrols the area of the monk guild in NQeynos... his last name begins with a "D" if my memory serves... he took out my level 41 druid with 2 swings of 597hps each, so suggest camo/invis is KOS to corrupat and needing anything in that part of Qeynos. No other guard to date has attacked me in Qeynos as I am amiable and warm to all others i have seen.

That same Lieutenant toasted me with some sort of spell. Seemed like a Harm Touch, because in scrolling back it never showed a weapon attack, just a spell cast of some sort that killed my 32nd druid in one blast. I never saw it coming, just LOADING....PLEASE WAIT....

There are some low level corrupt guards in the South Qeynos zone, but they were green and didn't attack me. One roamed over to the area where you turn in the bandit sashes for bronze at the palladins.

Aye, Lt. Dagarok is a nasty enemy for anyone. He is a good reason to do some of the shady quests. I personally am insane. I want to fulfill as many quest opportunities as possible. So, I would like to make my way down to the Necromancer guild and such. In fact, I may be the first Human Druid to collect monk headbands. I suggest that other semi-insane people do this as well, as this gives you great faction. I don't recall that it lowers any factions at all. I would like to do Rogue quests, Necromancer quests, and those pertaining to other shady groups. It seems problematic to me that most, if not all quests that raise CQG factions lower regular QG faction, which doesn't help. I do realize that giving gnoll scalps to the Captains at High Hold gates will give you gold and faction, possibly even experience. It does seem to hinder me, as I have trouble making my way through West Karanas and staying alive, that these gentlemen are almost in Rivervale. I am fortunate in that there are these men at all, so I suppose I ought to be thankful. At any rate, if any of you are in the Druzzil Ro plane of existence, feel free to give me a tell. May your hunting bmay e prosperous and your quests be fulfilling, may you become wealthy and powerful, and may Tunare protect you!

Raz the Rat Minsk is also friendly with this faction. He is found under on of the two docks. He also seems to be friendly with the regular guards, as he called for help and I had to run to the zone one time.
My experience with Dylin...
# Jun 17 2000 at 5:52 AM Rating: Decent
I was indifferent to Qeynos corrupt, then got the book after killing Dylin and became "dubious" to them. Not hard to fix, just turn in gnoll and orc scalps to the captains at either gate in Highhold.

Agree that hit is high. I have killed Dylin 3 times and my faction with corrupt guards has gone from amiable to dubious. But then I've also done 3 or 4 quests that lower the faction as well. Oh well, back to high pass/high keep. /auc wtb orc/gnoll scalps, left goblin ears.

Thadius Thyme (sp?) in the halas bar decreases faction significantly. I did 3 levels killing here, and while I *did* raise faction with everyone else in Qeynos, I bit the bullet when it came to the corrupt guards. Thanks to her, I can't walk around in that town any more.

Best way to work Qeynos faction (especially when KOS):
Grab about 6-8k in gold pieces from your bank. Get a druid to port you and themselves into North Karana and cast wolf illusion on you. This should make you dubious to all Corrupt Guards. Go to the Northeast of North Karana and look for Guard Shilster. If he isn't there, just wait a few minutes because he occasionally wanders off. You should be dubious to him in wolf form.
Hail, Guard Shilster
What contraband?

Now, hand him 5 gp at a time until you become amiable or better. I was very KOS to all guards in Qeynos. Please note that since you are in wolf form, the first move you will actually see is from dubious to apprehensive while in wolf form.
Here was my approximate results, but yours may vary somewhat:
Started - KOS
1000 gp - Threatening
2000 gp - Dubious
4000 gp - Apprehensive
4500 gp - Indifferent
5500 gp - Amiable
I donated another 1500 gp, but did not increase above amiable. I just wanted some assurance of the faction in case I have to kill one of these guards later. Note this will give you MAX negative faction with Qeynos good guards.

Next, go to blackburrow or some other location with a lot of gnolls and kill away to bring up Qeynos good guard faction. In every scenario that I have seen, you must work corrupt guard faction to where you want it first or else you ruin good guard faction while working it.
