haven't gotten the FD yet, but I was wondering what type of aug I should put in this marvelous blade. I'm trying to steer clear of LDoN augs, or the merchant-bought augs, nothing fancy. Couple of droppable augs I found
Tersmochin Heartwood (I'll need some serious help getting this, I know)
Orb of Stinging Fury
Lifetap augs from DoN
Hate augs (Deep Crust Fire Geode)

Any suggestions?

The blackened Lava Rock is EXTREMELY rare... found 1 in about a million mobs killed in Skyfire (no joke, I've helped 4 clerics get their 4 pearlescent shards... and 1 drop?!? gimme a break) and it also gets resisted most of the time. I will try to go for the Rage Moss, or maybe Tersmochin... I like lifetaps =P thanks for that, didnt know Rage Moss existed

I'm having trouble catching the dragons up to get the Book of Scale, been trying for about 1 1/2 years now, so I'm resorting to buying a Book. If you have one or know someone who does, send in game email to Rdbanker.

to kill Sir Lucan De`Lere.. ya only need
1) a lvl 60+ pally

First froggie Lightbearer on Stromm :)

Got this lil' beaut after about a year of relatively active gaming on char. Thought I'd add a few notes for others who are still seeking their 1.0.

1. Ghoulbane: Cake quest. do it in yer mid 20's, should take a few days.

2. Soulfire:
A. Faction is the worst part, take yer 4000gp or so, donate it 2gp at a time in Qeynos for consistent fac over a few hrs time to Warmly.

B. Xicotl. Now in the Faydark, since the MM revamp, duo'd him in 50's. If doing SF in 30s or 40s bring help fer him.

C. Sir Lucan. Bring help unless in 60s+. Pull to EC ZL, zone. Friends (non-KoS) hail him and key you in when other guards gone. Commence the beatdown. The quest portions are cake, look up the rest on the SF item posts.

3. Fiery Avenger:
A. Books books books. THIS is the true bottleneck of 1.0 fer pallies. If yer havin trouble gettin books, thank the dragon farmers. Either get yourself a high level ranger buddy who can search the respective zones fer dragons DAILY fer a week or so; OR make a ranger alt of yer own if ye dont have any ranger buddies. find the spawn date, will most likely be the kill date also :) Track it, call guild, commence the beatdown (tank them lower than yer 50s and ye'll not live long to regret it :P).
B. If the ranger track method doesn't appeal to ye, keep 75-100k on yer trader mule at all times and pray fer Book of Scale to show up in baz. just FYI: the book DID NOT APPEAR in /baz search window as of July/Aug or 2004.* I was perusing for a Runed Bolster Belt and found a mule selling 3 or 4 of em (GREAT indicator of a dragon farmer). Went to purchase, and looked thru inventory, sure enough, this guy had the book. Only wanted 10k fer it (quite a steal imho), so i bought it. I double checked the /baz search window just in case i missed somethin, but no, the book merely DID NOT APPEAR in search even though i was staring at it in the guy's inventory for sale.

*edit- it shows in bazaar now, as of September 05. Saw one the other day on mule.

C. Miragul: 7 day spawn, bring a necro (to charm lich for hand in) and group of buddies in 50s, 60s to burn his **** to the ground. Loot head and robe.

D. Deepwater faction: get an evil Erudite to let you into Paineel and then you can begin the slaughter his evil brethren :) can be solo'd in low 60s, but bring goodie race/class friends if need groupage ie: <lv60. spend an hour or two slaughtering green-blue NPCs and guards. DO NOT go near the GMs or wander far from the ZL heh. Faction can be done in no time flat.

E. Inte Akera for turn in: Get a necro who's keyed thru Isle 4 (and cleric also keyed to 4, if desiered 96% rezzes), as well as a wizzy to port. Wizzy ports ye up, you attack any NPC and die. Cleric rezzes, Necro runs to Isle 4 and summons corpse then necro rez (or cleric rez again) once there. Wizzy waits on Isle one to spawn Dason and then Inte. Wizzy gives the 500pp once you're on 4 near spawn point. Give him the GB, SF, then return the blessings, and head/robe for FA.

4. Fiery Defender: Ok once ye have the FA (or before ye get it if wanna be pre-emptive heh), all 3 Tainted Darksteel items can be got in one session (few RL hrs time). I know because I killed all three named fer the three drops AND did the final turn-in to Irak in PoF in the same day :) Try this order and method, it worked fer me. Keep busy until the next real Patch day. Log-in Immediately after patch, then follow this path:

A. Kirak Vil in Nektulos Forest- easy to find, one group of 60s will destroy this peon. Don't bother trying to solo regen too fast fer pally DPS in 50s, low 60s. Kill/ Loot Shield. (5 min tops to kill this sucker once all zone in).

B. Thought Destroyer in Hate. Buy the port stones (52pp ea) in cleric guild Neriak 3rd Gate. can be solo'd in 60's but recommend at least a healer to be on safe side. Head to /loc -150 -600, the mob is in a corner between some building-structures. Destroy and loot BP. (Should take you no more than 10-15 min to find and kill once in zone).

C. Keeper of the Tombs. Print a map. Bring a strong group high 50s- low 60s, with Cleric, Chanter, and Druid for track/port home. Work your way down clearing everything that comes at you. Push toward -300, +275 or so. Track from there if needs. The drop A Sacred Key shold have dropped off mobs enroute, if not, ye can bard/rogue picklock to get into his room, and/or use wolfform to poke your nose in and target for taunt, stun, nuke whatever to pull him out. (This camp will be the most time consuming of the 3, give it an hour or two, assuming no wipe). Kill, making sure not to push mob thru the door, so you can still loot. Loot up gate/port out for fastest exit.

*edit -fastest I ever did keeper was about 45 of crawling with clr + mag trio, clearing everything from the undead portion on.

D. Irak Altil. This one will be tough. No way around it. I was fortunate enough to have zoned in after someone had cleared the majority of mobs in zone. Irak was still up, hanging out at his favorite Belltower. Best advice, DONT GO ALONE. BRING INSTA-GATE potions "Vial of Swirling Smoke", one for each char in zone.* Bring at least a high level tracker class (I brought a druid), to have them kite mobs toward Irak. Have them then break away from him once you can see him, so you can do turn-ins while the mobs aggro kiter. Both insta-gate home afterward for the win :)

*edit- DoN summoning here now. Don't /fear Fear :)

That's all i got. Hope it helps. Good luck and never give up! Your very own epic 1.0's still out there waitin on ye :)

just go to Plane of storms, kill named Lord at forest (1 group Time+ geared or 2 groups elemental). Go to Plane of Torment, kill Kaniz, 1 group is overkill. Go to Plane of Hate with 2 groups (70's), take out innoruk. Done.

# Mar 15 2005 at 2:03 AM Rating: Decent
The hole in your plan is assuming everyone is Time and Ele geared...Some of us in small guilds without TONS of playtime don't often get into the plane of time or even the ele planes.

YES you can buy better weapons damage/delay wise.
NO you cannot BASH with them pre 59 and 20+ aa's.
NO they do not look nearly as cool as the epic.
FEW of them have such a good proc/proc rate.

My little group is about done with this for our pally. We're all 55 (getting all aa's before moving to 59) There is a PAL, MNK, RNG, SHM, CLE and we pick up random LFG people to fill the 6th spot. CLE is one kill from epic, SHM (me) is only two, RNG is two, MNK is one and pally has just completed his FA.

You don't have to raid every single night to have fun. You don't have to take crap from people who play while you're at work who say your items are gimp. At least you're not getting money from your mom to buy expansions and using her cerdit card each month to play EQ.

You're goals are yours and yours alone. If you want to stay lvl 52 and hunt old dragons your whole life, that's great! If you want to kill a few lvl 53's and get the old school epic, go for it! I wish you the best of luck =)

Sscarz Spiritseer
55 SHM of Bristlebane
<Avatars of Bane>

If you share our goals (Epics, get all aa's when they become available, take time to enjoy the game) Give us a tell. We hit HS and Seb alot, and we're always up for epic fun.

Epics 3.0s
# Nov 20 2004 at 5:08 PM Rating: Default
I think SOE should create an Epic 3.0 that is an Artifact(one per server) and only available as a random reward for completing Epic 2.0! Like,this could be Blazing Defender with higher stats,30 delay,40 damage,with a second proc for Undead Bane damage. Hehe I'm sure I'm the only one who thinks this way. :-) I just think SOE should integrate Artifacts into the game randomly to make the game more exciting. Knowing exactly what to do to get exactly what we know we'll get is a bit tedious. Of course Artifacts should be limited only to players 40+,but I think it would be great! :-)

Need to verify some of the information as it is either outdated or just plain wrong. One example is the Holyforge Disc - lasts for 5 mins (not 2) and it works on all targets not just undead.

Just a thought. Saw the edit date was Nov 7, 2004 so it should be using the current ruleset.

Other than that, looks like a self-repository on how the game is played rather than mostly Paladin specific as most of the information is way to redundant on other sites.

Anyone remember the pally epic being nerfed? Used to be a 243 damage proc + stun, now it's nerfed to 155 with shorter duration stun (I think). Glad to know a melee epic would be nerfed when berserker's epic has over 100 hitpoints or cleric epic is still used daily. WTG SOE!

RE: Remember?
# Jul 09 2004 at 8:52 AM Rating: Excellent
I think they nerfed the sk epic also. I don't think its a 250hp lifetap proc anymore. Anyways, if SoE has nerfed these epics they should make them easier to get. Like I heard they increased the drop rate on some epic drops. Dunno what the reason was for the nerf on these obsoleat weapons. Maybe its cause of those lvl 65 people who are time/ep geared and are doing old epic mobs for thier twinks with one or two groups. Good job guys!
# Jun 11 2004 at 10:46 AM Rating: Default

I started this quest a LONG time ago. (3.5 years ago) Like every pally at lvl 15 or so, I loved my ghoulbane. The soulfire was good for a bit, once my 5 ch's were gone there were better weps starting to come out. Somehow I managed to stop using 2hs, and started using the 2hp'ers out there. I fell in love with the 2hp vs 2hs. Seem to miss less and hit for more with 2hp when compared to a 2hs with the same ratio. So I said ***** it, why get a 2hs like FD when at lvl 55 I could use narandi's lance which blows FD away? Then newer stuff came out, and still newer. Now stuff like Heavy Windriders Lance totally smokes the FD and makes me feel so glad I never bothered going any further then soulfire. Alot of people can relate to this im sure.... now, At lvl 65 I never would have imagined I'd be posting in a thread about the FD. But with the epic 2.0's coming out, and the assumption that origional epic will be a part of that quest, if yer a 65 pally who doesnt have the FD rotting in the bank, its going to suck bad 8(
If the new pally epic is anything close to the zerker epic it would be worth having IMO. I personally will be stuck waiting to find something better then my HWL with the next expansion. So if your still in your low 50's or below, watse the time to get this FD because as it turns out, it wont be such a waste afterall.

I won a HWL in BoT myself. And have better 2HS weaps than the FD.

I had decided to NOT do the epic after I got the Ghoulbane and Soulfire.

I was helping a guildie in Hate. Lo and behold, the BP drops. So, a guildie needs an epic drop in the Hole. Keeper dies, have sword.

About 2 weeks later, the same guildie send me a tell. Someone dropped Sev and the torn burnt book is still on the corpse.

With all that dropped in my lap, I changed my mind. Killed Kirak Vil. Got shield.

Now all I need is to catch Gore and kill Miragul. My guild is working Sky right now, and we're all keyed to the 4th isle. Turn in will be cake.

The moral of the story would be while you may not intend to do your epic, hang onto what you already have. You never know when the right things will happen at the right time.

And like you, I hope the Pally Epic V2.0 is truly an EPIC weapon. Ours is the oldest and most outdated epic there is. We're due :)

After 2 years of hard work, and a lot of patience, I completed this quest. Although I mainly use a WMBS as my weapon, which is overall a much better and faster damage dealer, I completed this quest to be able to finish what I started. It is always easy to just give up when it is so much easier to get something better (and I HAVE better weapons overall), but knowing that I finished what I started out to do is what makes this a very satisfying completion.

Many will want to remind me about the better equipment out there, and I KNOW it is there - I AM actively trying to get it. I just want to know that I am not someone who starts and gives up. It is MY want, MY desire, MY goals that drove me to complete this. No one can take this away from me. I finished what I started.

What is great about this though, is the number of people who want to actually see the weapon. They want me to show it off. This makes the end result all the more satisfying, in that others can share in my joy and sense of accomplishment.

So, to you who think this is a waste of time - do what you will. Setting a goal and finishing it - despite what other people think, is a reward in and of itself.

For all you Brother Paladins out there working this - stick with it friends - in the end - it is YOUR satisfaction that matters.

While I may agree that there are better weapons out there, I don't think that the WMBS is one of them. When you take the fact that our epic has a virtualy unretesistable proc and an innate ability to bash, I don't think that one would realy out parse the other as far as overall DPS goes (assuming you haven't put AA points in the 2hand bash ability). But, aside from the damage, the epic has 2 added chances to interupt casting that the WMBS doesn't. So, between the two, I would still consider the epic to be a better weapon.

RE: any lvl?
# Feb 15 2004 at 2:29 PM Rating: Decent
It means when the proc goes off... the mob who is doing the resisting will have their MR reduced by 100 when calculating whether or not they get stunned. (It's good.)

# Jan 07 2004 at 1:10 PM Rating: Decent
Hmm, I know epics are really just for the feel good factor of having done it, but its a shame FD is poor compared to many weapons out there, especially as many other class epics are good or at least always useful (clerics free rez, druid free dot).
Also, i may be wrong, but to get pally epic dont you hav to stay below lvl 53? i mean thatis unfair as other classes dont have a lvl limit to get theirs, having the limit just causes alot of uneccessary aggrivation, having to wait around forever at 52 as all your friends go up in lvls, and consifdering how slow the spawn is and how many pallies are around, you are stuck at 52 for a very long time.
As a high elf i went for Natures Defender anyway because i prefer it, i think due to the 45 AC it has it is a better weapon, at least for me it is anyway.
Its just a shame they made FD such a pain to get for such a little reward
RE: Really just for status, but even so...
# Mar 21 2004 at 11:19 AM Rating: Default
It is indeed a shame.
As a 65 Paladin (Not elemental but shhhhhhh) I would consider using the Zerker Epic in everyday combat. The Paladin Epic is really bad other then the hidden ATK bonus...

With the new Zerker epic being so much better, I think they ought to upgrade the Pally/SK Epic.

No Asteldian, you don't have to stay below 53 to do the epic/epics. Your first shot to get the parts needed for Fiery Avenger are with Naggy and Vox, and you have to be 52 or lower for them, but there are many other dragons who drop these items as feel free to level to whatever you want. There will always be a dragon there for you to pick on, who will possibly drop the books. Good luck.
RE: Really just for status, but even so...
# May 03 2004 at 12:59 PM Rating: Decent
You do not HAVE to stay below 52 but I would. My pally is 62 now and I have both soulfire and ghoulbane and decided to finish out the epic, the only problem is I can't get the books on the nagg/vox raids and all the other dragons that drop the books are timed by people who 2 box them as soon as they pop. So basicaly I am screwed unless I get on as soon a the server comes up from a patch and someone comes to take them down or enough of my guild mates get on. Hope this helps and you don't get stuck like I am.

basically, you can complete the epics at lvl 46 (49?) when you can enter the planes you need to travel to to complete the epics, or it can be MQed (but i dun think the hand-ins will work with MQ )
Which Augment?
# Oct 06 2003 at 12:33 PM Rating: Decent
So, what would be a good augment for this weapon? I have one, LOVE IT, and would like to know what augmentation would prove best for it. Any info is appreciated. I have yet to see a definitive list of all available augments.
RE: Which Augment?
# Jan 09 2004 at 5:56 PM Rating: Default
760 EF - Radiant Permafrost - 150 Cold Based DD

1150 BB - Black Diamond of Regeneration - 75 Diseased Based LifeTap

1150 NRo - Sparkling Emerald of Protection - Spell Guard III (5% Melee Damage Absorb until the shield takes over 300 Melee Damage)

These are all Equal in effectiveness in my opinion. Frankly it'd be great to just take the 150DD since its cold based and will add more diversity to your Magic Based.

The lifetap is great and adds some nicer agro but is kinda expensive.

Guard is very nice for tankage but again is expensive... and on real high end mobs I dunno how valuable it is, but it definatly has its perks.

Choose whichever fits you, but these are your best bets that you can actually count on getting.
RE: Which Augment?
# Feb 05 2004 at 1:28 PM Rating: Default
I don't know if there is an augment that would make this weapon not suck. I'm a 65 pally and will get this for because i've always wanted it, but it will never get used. If you have the means to earn this weapon, you have the means to obtain better. In my opion its one of the best looking weps out there, but go to BoT and raid the towers if possible and pick up the weps from Chaoswind, you'll be happier.

RE: Which Augment?
# Jan 30 2004 at 4:37 AM Rating: Decent
Why in Quellious's name would you drop a proc augment on a weapon that already has a proc? Ever tried using your spell procs with weapons that already proc? It doesn't increase the frequency of proc...just randoms which proc it uses. Putting another proc on the Fiery Defender is not only a waste of the slot but a complete waste of AP.

RE: Which Augment?
# Mar 05 2004 at 6:14 PM Rating: Decent

The way multiple procs work, is with each swing, a roll is thrown for each proc. However, only one proc can activate per swing. So, you will never have more than one proc per swing, but you have a greater chance for a proc going off per swing. So, as a pally, if you have a spell proc, your fiery defender, and a nice DD aug in it, You have a 3 times greater chance of your weapon procing per swing.

RE: Which Augment?
# Mar 21 2004 at 11:14 AM Rating: Default
Aye I've had 2 procs on a swing, the Lifetap on the weapon and the proc from Pious Might. Ive never had the two procs on the weapon go off, at least I don't think (I might have and not noticed.)

Whatever the case, adding procs onto the weapon most definatly adds to the proc rate, with 4 Procs (2 on the weapon, Pious Might, NDT) I proc a ton! It might not be 4 times as much as normal, but its definatly more.

1150 NRo - Sparkling Emerald of Protection - Spell Guard III (5% Melee Damage Absorb until the shield takes over 300 Melee Damage)

These are all Equal in effectiveness in my opinion. Frankly it'd be great to just take the 150DD since its cold based and will add more diversity to your Magic Based.

The lifetap is great and adds some nicer agro but is kinda expensive.

Guard is very nice for tankage but again is expensive... and on real high end mobs I dunno how valuable it is, but it definatly has its perks.

Choose whichever fits you, but these are your best bets that you can actually count on getting.

Just an FYI.
This sword has "Slot 1: Type 4", Not type 1.
I didn't take a pic of it to send in for the update, but I'm sure it'll be changed soon enough.

You know, it's really great to see all these people here discussing about the different aspects of paladins. PvP, comparison to other classes, a bit of strategy for playing, all great. However, this isn't really the Paladin Class Discussion area. This is the forum for the Fiery Defender. Talk about the sword, how you finished the epic, useful points for people just starting out on the epic to remember, things about the sword that makes is special, etc. I know this post is really late considering the dates on which all the others talking about the other things are, but still, maybe someone will read this and understand that if you really want to argue over a class, do it in the appropriate area. Or i'll get an ogre to sit on you.

Info on Fiery Defender Epic Quest.

There are three quests that must be done before the Fiery Defender quest. These quests are Ghoulbane, Soulfire, and the Fiery Avenger quest.

Tip for Fiery Avenger:
When you have all the items to hand into Inte Akera in Plane of Sky...make sure you hand him Ghoulbane... then Soulfire. You will receive two blessings for giving him the two swords. Give him back those blessings and the Head and Robe of Miragul to receive Fiery Avenger. I did not understand this hand in policy and had to petition to get items back. MAKE SURE you have warmly faction with Deepwater Knights in Erudin as well, VERY IMPORTANT!!

Once you have Fiery Avenger, it is time to get the Defender. I am currently a few steps away. I have received the breastplate from Hate and have gotten the gem, Reklon Gallen combined them nad gave me the Gleaming Breastplate. I have received the sheild from Kirak Vil in Nek Forest and Elia the Pure in Felwithe has blessed it for me. I only need the sword from the Hole to get the Mark of Atonement from Reklon Gnallen. Then I will be off to the Plane of Fear to clear the zone, charm Irak and hand him the Mark and Fiery Avenger. Then the epic is mine!

Info: Breastplate is a rare spawn, however I was lucky to get it on my first time to Hate. Keep lookin for those thought corrupters.

The Keeper of Tombs in the Hole must be a 7 day spawn since I have ventured there twice and he has not been up. You CANNOT track him so if anyone finds a great way to find out if he's up, please post it.

If you have any further questions, please post and I will try to help. Good luck to you all!

I'm not sure why you had to petition to get your hand-ins back. If at first you hand Inte all four items, just hand him the two blessings. He still has the head and robe; he doesn't eat them.

And yes, the Keeper of Tombs can be tracked.

Finding the Keeper

dkspanky - Who lied to you when they told you he cannot be tracked?

I was on a raid to get our chanter the Kindle drop and I asked our tracker what named were up in this area. when he said the Keeper of the Tombs I about split my pants. Not only did we get our chanter her drop but also mine!

The keeper is now in the building with the Ghost of kindle on the outside, the one in the farthest south location.

If you use the EQAtlas map, and look at where 11 is, which is an underground tunnel and chamber with mimics in it, the courtyard ABOVE that (in the zone - you have to get to this place from the West) is where Kindle is. The chamber SOUTH of that contains the Keeper. There is another square chamber on that map that is south of the Keepers chamber fed by 2 tunnels running N-S and with side corridors switching back and forth to take you upstairs to another chamber. So he is essentially in the middle of those chamber areas. At least that is where we found him.

He has a couple of spooks with him, but Paci Pulling was easy.

Good Hunting all.

Make a lvl 1 halfling rogue of Brell and send him into the Hole. Once you have hide and sneak up the mobs won't see you, even if they con kos. There's a little spot outside the outer wall of the undead tower, that looks down on the Master Yael spawn area, where no mobs go.

Once you crawl him down there, you can log in whenever you want, hide and sneak, and go check for the Keeper whenever you feel like it.

I've got little Holosploro camped out there on Tarew Marr waiting patiently for the day the Keeper of the Tombs is up.

Note that with the recent revamp of the Hole, the Brell halfling rogue trick is no longer 100% safe -- there are some mobs there that will still see you and kill you. Be careful as you scout, and try to get your halfling bound in Paineel by the entrance to the Hole to reduce the time to run back.

Yep; the new gargoyles at certain places prevent a lowbie rogue from getting to certain places in the Hole, namely anywhere beyond the broken gate/tunnel and past the boulder door at the bottom of the pit. Because of the revamp it is no longer possible to verify if the epic ghosts are up.

Hide/sneak still works well; the only kos mobs that see through it are the ratman inhabitants, chests and the gargoyles, and only at the above mentioned places do the gargoyles aggro (they don't seem to aggro from the rooftops when you go underneath). The ghosts (also kos) do NOT see through hide/sneak. All other mobs should be dubious and you can roam pretty freely.

Best way for anyone to survive a drop into the Hole is /q right before you hit the bottom. If done properly, when you come back in you continue to fall the remaining distance and can get away with taking very little damage.

Why the hell are non-paladins, people who think our epic sucks,.. and all the rest of you who whine about which class is better than the other...
there are some of us who like to actually read the posts for valuble information on spawn times, locations and hints/tips on strategies..

I play a paladin loudly and proudly, i do my best to add flavour and character to every guild and group i am in. I know it's how you play a character, NOT what his stats are, NOT what race/class is, NOT what gear you have..

Play a table-top rpg for a while, and learn the value of teamwork and roleplaying and see what the rest of us are trying to accomplish.

#REDACTED, Posted: May 21 2003 at 6:37 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Heyas all ... I just completed my epic at level 49. I am the very first Froglok Paladin to do it! just wanted to tell you all how i did it:
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 20 2003 at 5:11 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ok first of all i could care less what you 'think' i wrote this to help others because it was alittle sketchy so dont go saying all this when your not even high enough to even do an epic.
RE: Completing
# Jun 12 2003 at 1:23 PM Rating: Decent
You should change the beginning of this from "I just completed..." to "I just bought my epic" and this is how I did it.

IMHO epics should be no drop and all components should be non-MQ'able. Otherwise they are not truly "epic" are they?
#REDACTED, Posted: Sep 17 2003 at 10:41 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Hey now, anyone who gets their epic earned it in their own way! How do you think he got people to MQ it? Probably by friends that he MADE while PLAYING this GAME called EverQuest! If you dont recall, the most important thing to do is to have fun, he got his MQ by having fun with other people, therefore earning it. He got his 30k book because he earned his belt that he sold, so therefore, he earned all of it, dont speak if you think you're better than him because you dont have people to help you along the way

You're not the first, your just the first to powerlevel, buy the items, and say you went though the trouble. The reward dosn't count if you didn't do the effort.

Irak doesn't talk when you hail him. You just turn the pieces in.

Be careful though, I watched another NPC hunt him down and kill him the other night.

I just turned in all the pieces to get the Mark of Atonement (sp?) so all I have to do now is turn it in. At level 55 I think this weapon will be decent, but I have spent over a year and a half pursueing this darn thing. Good luck to you all.. once you get past the FA it is a piece of cake!

I got this thing a while ago ( lvl 60 ) and it seems that it is fairly decent, has a nice proc to boot. I found that this quest was much easier to do then the one before it ( Fiery Avenger ) The only thing that may be a little tough is the Breastplate in PoH. Good luck to all of you young Cavalier's who are hoping to get this sword by lvl 55. I sure know I didn't. Well anyway, just wanted to say that this sword is not the best but can be very helpful.
Deepwater faction
# Feb 10 2003 at 5:05 AM Rating: Decent
I was very concerned about the time sink I was in for trying to get this faction up. Fortunately I stumbled on a bit of information that made my life easy: kill Elial Brook.

This guy is a heretic who spawns every 6 minutes next to the dock in Toxx forest. I killed him 20 times and turned in his bones (one at a time) to a guy in the Erudin Palace (can't remember his name but a bestiary search for Elial Brook will sort you out) and I had amiable faction.

Took about two hours, practiced swimming and sense heading between pops, and I am good to go for my epic.

This worked for me having never killed a single mob that ever raised Deepwater faction.
