Either this part is broken or it is ultra-rare. Cleared the whole zone the last days more than 10 times. Even a with greens my toon leveled up into the 70ties and no drop. This is a damn stupid PoP-Quest-Part normally at Level 60-62 and without a highlevel ransacking the zone simply stupido. How anybody ever could have persevered that crap 10-20 years ago is beyond me...

Agreed. Very Rare
Drops from Malfunctioning System

We are trying to flag some lower level friends for HoH, and we got this to drop from a malfunctioning system today. I guess it is only fair since we wiped repeatedly in PoN trying to get the Nightmare Mephit Heart

Okies guys n gals this is the box of souls quest hope this helps You say, 'Hail, Grenic Drere'

Grenic Drere says 'Mortals, this far into the planes? Something that I never thought that I would see. Regardless that does not help my [situation] any does it?'

You say, 'What situation?'

Grenic Drere says 'Not that it is your business, but this is where I call home. I have lost track of the years that I have spent here. This valley is my home, for I was exiled from [Mithaniel's Temple]. It is not a story that I am proud of and do not wish to share with you. So be one with you.'

You say, 'Where is Mithaniel's Temple?'

Grenic Drere says 'Only a mortal would be as thick headed to know not when to take their leave. He and his legions call his temple The Halls of Honor. Paladins that have served him well on Norrath have the opportunity to ascend into his ranks. They are in training to make sure that they are always prepared to defend what they believe is the right and honorable thing to do. Mithaniel is an extremely proud being, and will accept any challenge that you may have to offer him. If you are willing to challenge him, I may have some [information] you will find useful.'

You say, 'What information?'

Grenic Drere says 'There are other methods to enter the Halls of Honor than those that are readily apparent, and as a former soldier of Marr I can offer you access into the Halls; however as with all such arrangements there must be something [paid] for something earned.'

You say, 'Paid?'

Grenic Drere says 'I was not the only member of my squad that was sent into exile, my brothers in arms, were the impetus for our exile. I was but a mere pawn. They now reside in the Plane of Justice as bodiless shades. Their punishment was too lax for their actions; I want their eternal souls to be mine. Find a smith who will teach you to create a box of souls, weaken the shades, then capture their souls and return all three to me.'

Journey to the Plane of Knowledge and speak with Borik Darkanvil:

You say, 'Hail, Borik Darkanvil'

Borik Darkanvil says 'Greetings, Borik Darkanvil, at your service. I was once a planar traveler like you. Those days are behind me, now I am content to earn my keep as a blacksmith, and to experiment with some of the [special recipes] that I have picked up in these outer planes.'

You say, 'What special recipes?'

Borik Darkanvil says 'Well a little bit of this and a little bit of that. If there is anything you need assistance in making come see me. I may be able to help.'

You say, 'Do you know how to make the Box of Souls?'

Borik Darkanvil says 'Borik Darkanvil's eyes grow narrow. 'So looking to capture some souls are you? It's none of my business I suppose so don't answer. I'm pretty sure that I don't want to know. I paid heavily for the formula for the Box of Souls, but its not a price I would pass on to anyone else. There isn't much to it, but it does take the hands of a skilled smith and the magic of Tanaan's forges to event attempt it. First you will need a block of [Perilium].'

You say, 'What is Perilium?'

Borik Darkanvil says 'Perilium was once used to make clockwork machines, there are now stronger metals so it has become harder and harder to find Perilium, much less a block that is large enough to be of any use. Then you will need to find the brain of a crystal spider, this is where the actual soul will be held. Of course the box will need a supernatural power source, the souls are held into place by the horror of their own dreams, the heart of an agony mephit will give the device that power. Forge these with a smithing hammer and a vial of sacred water and you will have your box. Of course if you have not the skill, I can [forge them for you].'

You say, 'Will you forge them for me?'

Borik Darkanvil says 'If you return all three items to me I will do the work for you for, a mere three thousand platinum. I will not guarantee my success, but I can guarantee if you do not have the skill, you will fail.'

If your blacksmithing skill is high enough (trivial <= 139), you see this instead:

Borik Darkanvil says 'A smith of your skill does not need my assistance in making the box, however I won't turn away your money. Bring me three thousand platinum, the perilium, the brain, and the heart and I will make the box for you.'

You can attempt this yourself by placing an agony mephit heart, a crystal spider brain, a solid block of perilium, a water flask, and a smithy hammer in a Tanaan forge. Alternately, you can give just the heart, brain, and perilium to Borik along with 3,000 platinum. Be aware that either way the combine can fail.

Once you have the Box of Souls, journey to the Plane of Justice. Kill tormented wraiths until one of three "exiled XXX of Marr" spawns. Hand the Box to each of the three exiled souls of warriors there (they can be targeted but not attacked). Each hands you back the box and a unique soul sphere.

Journey back to the Plane of Valor, and give the three spheres and the box to Grenic Drere.

Grenic Drere says 'Hmm, this is minor vindication, but vindication nonetheless. I will never again fight with my old compatriots, but now I know the punishment of those responsible for my exile is fitting for their crime. We did have an agreement, and while stripped of my rank I still have my honor. This ring is what all Soldiers of Marr wear to enter the Halls of Honor, it serves no use for me any longer, it is yours now.'

He gives you his ring, which gives you alternate access to the Halls of Honor.
Ring of Marr

right along the wall till you get to a suit of armor standing up! H e is the one that starts this quest for the HoH backdoor key The Ring of Mar! here is the outline for the quest for any who felt like seeing what it was and how to do it! But be prepared to have at least 3Kpp with you lol!

I have enough quest stuff to work, but when this dropped off a corroded prototype in PoInnovations I figured I should grab it since they are so rare. (from zone in go left and they spawn just past the factory ramp entrance).

This is for the backdoor to Halls of honor. you have to take this , crystal spiders brian (from pov) agony mephit heart, (from pon) and combine with tanaan smithing hammer and vial of sacred water water(drops from seargant johnson popoh in pov). dont know the smithing lvl needed to combine. also there is a dwarf smith borik darkanvil in pok , that says he will do the combine, all you need are the 3 items, brain, heart, and block of perilium, for a mere 3000pp he will supply the water, hammer and "try " to combine the items for ya no garauntee of success. this combine makes a box of souls, you have to then capture 3 souls from in poj as yet i havent found any souls. put the souls in the box, then take em to the guy who gives the quest greneic drere , if ya go left when ya zone into pov he looks like a suit of mail . hes against the wall

So can anyone say for sure what mob(s) drop this in Plane of Innovation ? Or if random, maybe what area of the zone you looted this in ?
How is this quest done?
# Dec 23 2002 at 11:06 PM Rating: Default
I looted this from POI a week ago and nobody has been able to give me an answer on how where ro whom this quest for PoS starts.....if you have any info please post it:)
# Dec 06 2002 at 5:37 PM Rating: Default
