Spawning the Note
# Aug 04 2021 at 2:49 PM Rating: Good
This might seem obvious, but the encrypted note will not drop unless you go through the quest dialog with Tavon Vastsea and Jomaj Kaiijin. After I did that I was able to get the Encrypted note within ~20 mins.
Day 10

Still no note..

What the heck is this quest about !!! ?

Surely I understand the 1.5s are meant to be tougher, but boredom shouldn't be a part of it !

Day 11 Cracked it !

Go to Jomaj Kaiijin (+135 -665) with the cleric and say 'note' to him.

This will spawn the Kyv Runner who immediately attacks (hits for 800+ and flurries). Once killed there is an emote saying he attached the note around an arrow and loses it.

Once that's done, kill the trash mobs around the zone and within 30 mins I had the encrypted note !!

I re spawned and killed the Kyv Runner a couple of times during the day to make sure it worked.

Hope this helps someone :D

Pulled entire zone 3x and finally got the note. I'd have to call this a rare drop.

Just got the note of a mastruq spiritbrute on the 1st floor of the temple. Spent roughly 8 9 hours killing mobs before killing runner with now lucky. had guildie come kill and within 30 min after note droped. coincedence? maybe. but i said to hell with it and soing script like it should haha. it is a mob not on the list so was think any muramite even named around would drop it as well. but cannot confirm.
not bad

I killed the runner at about 3 AM PST, killed a few mobs after that before going to sleep.

I came back the next night at about 9:30 and got it after about 45 minutes of killing. After reading bgb's post, I think he just had an unfortunate coincidence.
how to get
# May 26 2008 at 7:22 PM Rating: Decent
We slayed the runner one day and after hunting a while found no note.
We came back weeks later and hunted over 10 hours and still no note.
Slayed the runner again and within 5 minutes had the note.

Can drop at any time

Just an FYI, this note can drop at any time from any mob. You do not need to kill the runner first, but you do need to kill him before you can hand the map pieces to Shav. Hope this helps.

Dropped off a Mastrug Warfiend about 30 minutes after I killed the Runner. He was on the 3rd lvl of the pyramid just south of the Runner spawn point.

Looted it today off a mastruq eviscerator. Was there for about 3 hours, killed the runner three times (he was already up when I zoned in).
# May 06 2006 at 6:17 AM Rating: Decent

We killed the runner for my girlfriend (2nd attempt)and then spent 3 hours killing mobs all over the zone no drop. there were other groups in the zone at the time. we stopped when our groupe got wiped by named. is it possible thet some one else looted the drop?

Any help any one can offer me would be awesome. It has taken me 8 months to persuade my girlfriend to go for the quest and i want to get it underway as fast as possible

thank you

We went to barindu and killed the kyv runner and we started killing mobs around him for a while, then my group took off. Luckily Kyroskrane was in zone and i asked him if he knew about the note dropping, he didnt but his group was killing and it dropped. He gave me a tell and i hurried over there. The note dropped like 2 hrs or more after i killed kyv runner, so i dont think there is much of a time limit for the note dropping after the kyv has been killed.

Oh yeah, it was a ra'tuk decapitator(pardon spelling) it was in the pyramid that i looted the note.
Note dropped from A Kyv Runner
# Jan 02 2006 at 1:55 PM Rating: Decent
This dropped from A Kyv Runner, the same mob that is supposed to shoot the note off. Perhaps this has been changed to cut out the killing of random mobs in Barindu.
# Dec 01 2005 at 12:33 PM Rating: Decent
Did this lastnight, the note dropped from the kyv runner itself. Not sure if they changed the quest or we just got lucky.
