Just finished on my 85 rogue on the Tunare server. Easy except for the kedge robe. Got a friend with a robe to MQ it for me, I did NOT have to do the other Vilinous quests.
Just finished on Mac server

Mac server the code was froze circa May 2003 so lvl 65 is lvl cap. I did the PoH naked and solo cept for a thurg port pot. Picks involved about 6 deaths but wasn't max PP skill yet. Renux was duoed by 50 rog and 65 BL. Brought a group of lvl 65s for General who didn't drop quill nor did the kedge robe drop. Using a 65 wiz and mag to kill Phinegal and CoH me in to loot Kedge robe worked. Camped Magus on and off for a month but after ~25 kills of him we tried the shortcut by killing Yendar. We killed Yendar with a 65 sham, cler, bl and 57 monk, he always drops SMR.
Have epic on monk and rog prolly the two easiest epics to get even on a very low pop server. Agree monk epic is better overall but choice of weapons for rog is limited which makes it better for the class itself.

I easily got both parchments by shrouding into a Goblin with max skills, got em both in less than 20mins :)
# Nov 27 2006 at 3:39 PM Rating: Decent
Parchments were easily obtainable with a 160+ Pickpocket skill.

Book of souls can be tricky. Sometimes a few entrance mobs of PoH will see through your sneak and finding your way to the actual book itself can be confusing if you don't know where to go. From the Maestro's chapel/building, go straight down the stairs into the next building which should have an arch infront of it. Once you're in the doors, go up the right staircase and it's on the cabinet of some sorts.

Renux was a piece of cake. Took a Necro, a Beastlord, Pally, and a Ranger all just under level 70: overkill...

General V'ghera wasn't too hard himself, but there were a few lowbie adds that were annoying. All you need is a good puller and probably a 70+ SK with at least 200 AA's (SK could be puller as well), split and kill the mobs until you just have the Coercer left, hand in the pouch, kill General, viola. You can also kill the Coercer later, but she didn't aggro us when the general was pulled. /shrug

Soloed Yendar for the Shining Metallic Robes with a 75SK (430ish AA's, anguish geared, 17k HP buffed). Never dropped below 96% HP. Could easily do it with another SK with less AA's/levels/HP/etc

Kedge Robe -- Kill Phinny, hope it drops from the DE's in Kithicor or get a MQ. Not hard.

Other robes are easily obtainable in bazaar if you didnt get the Cazic Quil from V'Ghera. Hope I didn't miss anything and hope this helps a little.

As long as you have not ruined your faction you are ok. I MQ the entire rogue epic (only 2 of 3 items are no-trade) have never had a faction based problem on the turn-in.

I pick pockets from Founy 6 times and not ocne did he have the parchment i have pick pocket skill of 200. I did discover that if u pick pocket any item besides the note from hi... u aint getting the note.

Hopefully i can get the note today and move on with epic.

Can be done in 24 hours.
# Aug 01 2006 at 10:27 AM Rating: Decent
I got the parchments finally the other day. Got both within about 12 hours of each other (Tani took 5 spawns to have it, Founy took 3 spawns). Also had the Book of Souls already thanks to a recent PoHate raid. After getting dubious faction with Anson McBale (see the Rogue Errands quest if you need to fix faction! It's so easy!), I used the sneak-for-indifference trick and was able to spawn Stanos ("I need to see Stanos")

From here, everything went smoothly. Ran around a lot getting the damnable note translated: both Yendar and Eldreth were up and Renux went down easy. Dead Man Floating will help you resist that nasty proc of hers, btw. Got my JDD and parchment, as well as a Ravenscale Mask (woot see invis!)

Did a quick bit of research on General V`Ghera and raided him promptly. I have posted about our strategy on the General V`Ghera bestiary page. Also got a Robe of the Kedge from the raid, meaning that all I have left to get is the Shining Metallic Robes.

Good luck. If you have your robes already (the three droppable ones can be bought for about 7k total on Bristlebane), the entire epic can be finished - from the first pickpocket to holding Ragebringer - in a day. (even for those of us without 1000 level 70 friends or uber gear! Yay)

P.s. Don't count on V`Ghera dropping the Cazic Quill. Count on him NOT dropping it. Then if he does, you can finish up epic really quick and sell the robe MQ.
Can be done in 24 hours.

I really wish that this was range capable so i could use other weapons in my secondary slot while still taking advantage of the haste and stats on this item
haste stack?
# Oct 14 2005 at 1:22 PM Rating: Decent
Does this haste stack with worn haste? cuz at the moment im using Runed bolster belt on my rogue and if i get the epic i would like to know. TY

send me a tell on Maelin.

No, the haste from Ragebringer is worn haste also. Since Ragebringer has great haste than the RBB, you can get rid of the RBB once you get your epic.

For the record, picked both parchments last night at level 47 with a skill of 176. You don't need to be 50, and you don't need 200.

i got both items last night as a lvl 45 rogue with only 118 skill and it only took 2 pick pockets to get note from each of them
No endurance?

Isn't there some endurance on this thing? Surely they didnt skimp on it that bad?

When this item was created, endurance did not exist. They probably patched it, and there is just no new info on it yet.
Paw revamp and Rogue killing
# Jan 27 2005 at 12:41 AM Rating: Decent
Thanks to Paw now being a 65+ zone, Rogues will now have to try harder for epics. a 50 rogue will have no chance getting the Ishva robe in Paw (if it even still drops there)

He will
1> Have to Buy it *prices are going up exponentially as I type*. And i know too many ppl who dont like buying thier epics. Myself being one. we play to PLAY, not buy our way thru the game.

2> Take a raid force with him, for the purposes of getting the robe

3> Wait till 70 .. and who is going to do epic 1.0 at 70??

Of course, this entire post relies on the Ishva robe still being needed in the epic and still dropping in Paw.

This is bad news for Rogues of course, but may be a note of good news for all those ppl whining that the rogue epic is too easy.

Glad i got my 51 Rogue epic 2 weeks ago, but my 62 cleric still has to get a force for the Chardoc king.
RE: Paw revamp and Rogue killing
# Feb 02 2005 at 8:00 AM Rating: Decent
FYI I also had the Ishva Robe drop (along with Kedge on the same mob!) so perhaps with the re-vamp of Paw, the Rogue epic got just that much gimpier! Who knows, soon we may get all robes dropping... they may as well just drop the quil everytime LOL!

RE: Paw revamp and Rogue killing
# Jan 27 2005 at 12:46 AM Rating: Decent
sorry, forgot option 4> Hope to god it drops from one of the Generals Darkelves *lucky me, thats where mine dropped*
RE: Paw revamp and Rogue killing
# Mar 20 2005 at 2:06 PM Rating: Default
well i wish i had known then .............. . any hoo, the RoI DOES drop off random mobs at the cabin. i destroyed 2 that weren't selling on trader (price was 100pp at the time) while i was suffering thru hellish tries at the cabin for the RotK. don't worry, you DEF DONT have to go to paw for it.

Actually, The Ishva Mal now spawns Outside of Splitpaw. DIRECTLY east of it, perhaps a tad to the southeast, about halfway between the map's border and SP itself. It's best to have a tracker. The placeholder is called 'An Ishva Lteth Gnoll' which is, like Ishy himself, a necro I believeth, though gimpier, and it, or Ishy, spawns 30 seconds after each death. Killed him ~20 times in an hour or less.

You kill him, and there's more or less 0 downtime if you don't get the robe the first time. Ya just gotta chase the guy down.

Best of luck.
Jan 2005 Epic
# Jan 07 2005 at 3:01 PM Rating: Decent
Just finished my epic last night on Brell Serilis at level 50. Some notes for those who haven't done it yet:

1. Malka Rayle can be skipped, but I wouldn't recommend it as the faction on Stanos' Pouch turn in is BIG.

2. Renux can be soloed (duh) by a 70 Druid with 500 AA's tanking her. Proc went off almost every hit but never landed.

3. General V'Ghera (and ALL his DE pals)were killed using two 70 Druids and a 69 Ranger as the tank. As a favor to a friend, I stayed out of the fight. (he wanted to attempt a solo, but after cleaning up the DE extras beforehand decided to get some backup) LESS than one groupable at this point.

4. The entire Epic can be done in one day, start to finish. From the initial note turn in to Stanos, to recieving the Ragebringer took about 4 hours.

5. I don't know what SoE changed in the Mid-December patch, but the Rogue Epic is still as gimpy as ever. Didn't have any suprises along the way.

Regarding Faction: You might also want to try turning in Orc Scalps for faction. Seems to go a bit faster than the Cards. FYI, the scalps off of Crushbone orcs can be turned in as well, and drop a lot more frequently. Hunt Gfay NOT CB if you're doing scalps. Manage about 6 stacks an hour and every two stacks jumps another "level" up in faction (it seems to cap at amiable though, as I turned in 16 stacks at amiable and it never changed. The Epic turnin's will get you to Ally from this point)

The easiest way to get Faction is to do the "Bent Card Quest" Anyone can do it, it gives Unseen Hands Faction. You get the cards by saying "What Shipment" to an NPC in the Rogue Guild in North Qeynos, then taking them to a DE just outside the N. Qeynos Gate. He gives you a note that you can take back to the same NPC in Rogue Guild, to build up Qeynos Guard Faction kill Gnolls, or faster way id turn in Brandy <alcohol> to Captain Rohand <Fishing Supplies> in S. Qeynos. If you are a Rogue get some Essence <WE/HE/BAR/etc> and if you say what shipment over and over, until you get your Back Packs FULL of Bent Cards to turn in, in a few hours of doing this, you'll be MAX Ally with several factions, to balace out Qeynos Good Guard Faction, do Brandy Quest, it is amazingly fast Faction. Look up the quests here on this site for more detailed info.

Just and fyi for the DE general event. Have a cleric pull this one for you. Clerics get an AE pac called Wake of Tranquility which can pac nearly the entire house in one fell swoop. You'll need to pull the zombies around the house first in order to get a good shot at single pulling the DEs. Once you've cleared the zombies, cleric casts WoT on each side of the house, making sure that you get a pac message for each of the DEs. Then cleric gets aggro with either Mark of the Righteous or Mark of Kings (very low aggro spells) and pulls mob back to the crossroads where the tank is ready to taunt/stun/darkness the mob off you. of 3 days ago

i finally finished my ragebringer about 3 days ago after starting at level 40 and ending at 50 (i could have ended at about 45 if they would do turnins)... had to barrow 7.5k off friend to buy a SMR...robe of kedge/isvah dropped on general raid... i now love my new ragebringer and use it all the time.

now i just need to get my High elf mask (pain in the **** to get all that stuff again...have had head in bank since level 15)
#REDACTED, Posted: Jul 11 2004 at 2:51 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) well i have been stuck at the cazic-quill subquest for some time now (thanks General - i oughtta kick your#$* again you *&!@%^). i would be done already (probably) but the DX9 fiasco was TOO MUCH. i didn't want to be responsible for guildies or friends wiping out and losing crap in L GUK because they crashed to desktop and respawned on the THRONE (or wherever) so i took time out until the game squared up a bit. well today i decided to have another go at it.
RE: friggin robe of the kedge
# Sep 20 2004 at 7:36 AM Rating: Default
well i am finally done. i bought the shining metallic robe from a guildie for 5k then 3 days later i saw 3 of em for sale n the bazaar. bought them all for a total of 350pp. WOOT. the sun even shines on a dog's a$$ somedays huh? sold 2 for 8k each and keeping the last one for my chanter's epic. anyhow, it seems that taking the de camp is all about aa's. i went there this time at 53 with a 65bst a 65enc a 56cleric and a 60druid. well 1st pull netted 3 mobs. 10secs later the wickedly hot dr00d (omfg do half elves look hot) was dead. the enc mangaged to mezz all the remaining mobs. i snuck up behind the mobs threw on theif's vengeance and started wailing for all i was worth. the bst was more than able to hold aggro and this enchanter's mezz's were text book. by the time the dr00d got back to the camp Advisor so-and-so was having the Robe of the Kedge stripped from his funky bod. we got her rezzed, she got mana and ported us out. i kept missing Vil's spawn so i had to wait a while to give him the robes for the quill but i did finally finish clearing Stano's name for which i was given this wicked blade. well this was enough toconvinve me NOT to level to 65 and then get aa's. after i train deadeye (2 yellows till 54 now) i will finish training 5 more general abilities, then i will hit 55 and start with arch abilities. it really makes a difference in your ability to get the job done.

What about haste?
# Mar 12 2004 at 11:24 AM Rating: Decent
I may be just getting worried here since I don't have my epic yet, but after reading the spell information on Seething Fury, it says now that it has the 9ac effect...but nothing more. Can anyone with the epic say for sure if the haste is still on this item?
RE: What about haste?
# Mar 16 2004 at 4:17 AM Rating: Excellent
It is. SOE changed the way it is displayed. Haste and ATK are now properties of the Item and no longer part of the spell. The spell info of allakhazam is based on the Spell DB File and is always up to date. Everything else is outdated since last patch. Ragebringer shows 40 ATK and 40% haste as additional Stats now.

Rasies your faction from indiff to amible too
# Dec 10 2003 at 2:13 PM Rating: Decent
not sure if someone suggested this already, but it works much better. If you have the plat to spare, buy a insta-gatepotion, you can buy them from a barbarian in PoK in the building right in front of the PoT stone. you go in and there is a female barb to your right and a male straight ahead, the male sells them. they run about 1200p.
but makes the trip so much easier. I didn't even get touched after hide and sneak broke. Do it this way and if you know the location of the book the trip should take about 30 seconds. easy.
RE: suggestion..
# Sep 20 2004 at 7:44 AM Rating: Decent
why buy a potion? i had a wizzy port me up, i gave him 20pp and asked him to cast trans on me. the window pops up and asks you if you whish to be translocated. it stays up for 3 mins i think. whatever the time limit is, it was more than enough for frightened, naked, 46 rogue to tip toe around and get the book. the second i clicked it into inventory, i hit yes. BAM. You have Entered the PLANE OF KNOWLEDGE check my inventory -- Book of Souls. 20pp donation and 40pp for the stone. -- a tip for those of us who are low budget rogues.

Heres an even easier way, though it was a bit of a mistake in the beginning...

I went and did the book step when I was lvl 50, so naturally I was scared out of my mind when I first got into PoH. I bought a stone and had the NPC lady in PoT beam me up. Well I got there, sneaked around a bit, and finally found the book! I was so excited that I realized I had no idea how to get the hell out...Luckily there was a level 70 ranger there, who I deuled and he killed me. I got to my spawning point and no xp lost! Yay! So I ran to Guild Lobby, summoned my corpse, and there was my beautiful book! Hooray for me!
