One was rotting
# Apr 06 2003 at 10:21 PM Rating: Good
I was in POG foraging the branches for earring solstice quest fishing rods, and another guild started raiding POG. Tunare was up and so they were clearing everything. A couple pieces were rotting including this tunic and it only had 2 min left on the timer. Not enuf time to port out and guide someone else back in. But I was able to port out and bring a shammy back to grab the leggings that had 19 mins left on it.
I ended up looting this tunic myself so I could tease clerics around diff zones with somethin I looted but couldnt use. Figured it was better than lettin it go to waste! Ppl still say omg and stuff in Gfay when I auction to give it away or asking for the first person to bring me a short beer gets it.

run over to hate and loot the corpse with like 8 minutes left.

hate? WL? Cleric BP with right click mark of karn?

Am i reading this wrong?
RE: woohoo!!
# Apr 26 2002 at 11:08 AM Rating: Decent
He was probably just so excited abouut getting the BP that he misspoke himself and meant to say Growth. And some boss mobs take a half hour to rot so it is possible there were 8 minutes left.

I dont know because Im only 35th..But I can see that this armour is better then EM armour..ofcourse most likely harder to get. Is there anything else better then EM(purple armour)for a cleric? Well besides Crazy Cleric which just rocks..Asking because once I get to the higher lvls I want to concentrate on getting one type of armour thats great for a Cleric...any info would be great thx..well good hunting and safe journey to all.
RE: question
# Dec 07 2002 at 8:11 AM Rating: Excellent
EM armor kinda sucks. Moktor (drops in UP) has better AC and almost the Wis. Yes you get a bit more mana with EM than the Moktor, but for my cleric I'd rather have the AC. Plus I can, and have, gotten the Moktor with an xp group. How many times have you xp'd with a single group in hate?

RE: question
# Jul 21 2002 at 5:47 PM Rating: Decent
Agree with the other post, just wanted to point out that the drop rate on cards in PoM is very low. Getting a few peices of crazy cleric or any PoM armor is extremely tough. Plan on binding there and using a faithstone/thrug gate potion to get anywhere else. Oh, and a few guildies to rez ya incase you actualy die when you arn't in PoM (unless you are a wiz/druid). All in all, the crazy cleric armor is great, but there are much easier to obtain armors that are only slightly worse.

Skyshrine quest armor is most realistic for you to attain if you are in a well organized high end guild. Your guild would need 20-30 lvl 57+ members to camp for the unadorned pieces of the quest. If that isnt realistic then getting pick up raids of mostly mid 50s in the Kael arena for Thurgadin armor. Both of these serious faction as well. Coldain faction must be Kindly if I remember correctly and CoV faction must be ally for SS armor.

There is also Kael armor but this isnt the best for cleric unless you are an AC fiend. And it is unrealistic unless you are in one of the top 3 or 4 most powerfull guilds on your server.

Hope this helps.. GL ;p

p.s. I have attended hundreds of hours of raiding ToV for SS pieces and still need three pieces just to let you know what kind of dedication is required to attain this (Kael,SS,Thurg) armor.

what is the effect of mark of kran
is it a heal effect
RE: effect
# Dec 31 2001 at 5:41 PM Rating: Decent
Mark of karn is a healing damage shield... Cast it on the mob, and if it sticks (Which it rarly does because of nerfs) then it cancels all DS's on the mob and whoever bashes the mob will be healed by I believe 5hp...

# Jul 30 2001 at 9:11 PM Rating: Decent
We arnt killing your Tunare Just all her little helpers. If they would just open up a vender up there and sell all the stuff than we wouldn't have to kill them. But no. They just dont want to give it up so we have to kill them. j/k I kinda wish I had a lvl 46 druid or ranger so I could come go back to PoG and just run around and look at stuff. Pretty cool plane overall.

# Jun 21 2001 at 11:18 PM Rating: Default
I for one would not want to kill my God/dess for loot. I know this sounds silly, but c'mon... if you are a cleric, you should try to role-play the fact that your blessings come from your God/dess. I just wish that VI would change it so DE Clerics aren't kos to Innoruuk. No one should be kos to their god/dess, and with PoG, and PoM open.. with another plane *i believe* opening soon, you can make it so.

we are KOS to innorruuk because he is the "god of HATE" regardless of whether or not we follow him he still hates us and expects the same of us. of all races the tier'dal should be the only race that if you kill the guards you dont lose faction, since most are followers of innorruuk there should be no bonds or ties between individual. and it makes no sense in PoH that you lose faction when everyone is already KOS there in the first place. i never understood that some zones have faction loss when EVERYONE is already KOS and there is no way to raise it up and never will be. go figure thanks verant for making unanswerable questions for us all.
RE: killing your god/dess

Dark Elf society is more of a Lawful Evil than a Chaotic Evil Society. Though it is technically ok to kill your fellow darkelves to get ahead, it is not ok to get caught doing it. It shows poor planning, bad execution, and ineptitude. It is a much better thing to manipulate others to do your dirty work for you. Hence the faction hits when killing your own people. You shouldn't be doing the dirty work yourself. Hire some stupid half elf to do it for you.

If every follower of innoruuk decided to kill every other follower of innoruuk just because he can then their entire society would degenerate into less than what the pathetic trolls are. Dark Elves are not stupid. They have much more dangerous enemies to worry about than each other and hence they work together against those common enemies.

Innoruuk(and the entire PoH) SHOULD work on the same principle. Yeah he hates even his own followers. But he needs them to fight the followers of the other gods that he hates MORE. And at least a Child of Hate is respectable. Dark Elves(innoruuk) and any Priest or SKs(since they are technically like pallies) of Inny should NOT be KOS in Hate. It should work just like PoG.

About time they make a plane that you can kill that hag. As a DE cleric, I've been enraged since the the Hate plane 1st started being raided and found out that DE Clerics were KOS to their own GOD and servants.
What's up with this

Not only are they just clones, but they are only turning out visible armor sets. I don't think there is a single complete set of armor from the Velious expansion. That is just sad.

You guys have done a lot of talking about the bp beind questable, but noone has said how to complete, or even start the quest. I would like to know cuz i don't feel like beating on my God, just bad mojo. Anyways, please feel free to give us an outline on how to complete this thing.

The exact same one is questable from Thurgadin, you need 3 black marble and a Corroded BP from Kael. Good luck.
RE: ?
# Jun 05 2001 at 10:56 PM Rating: Default
This one is not questable, is one almost identical though given out as quest in thurgadin. Same effect and almost if not exactly the same stats. /Rude VI. Nice BP but how about some variance kinda lazy I think.

Faction drops are with Tunare Guards, and clerics, as well as the druids/rangers of the woodelf clans.

You do not lose faction with Halflings and the druids in NK could care less.

The sisters on the Sister Isle in OT will not like you anymore.

You gain faction with NOTHING.

Dropped of Ordo.

Nice BP, especially for keeping the seconadary tank alive as we all killed the primary target.

Now if i could just get a silver moon BP ....
True effects of faction hits
# Feb 22 2001 at 7:00 PM Rating: Decent
Okay folks. I am sick and tired of wading through all the garbage that has been put up here. I want to know what the faction hits from killing PoG stuff will do. I don't want assumptions, I don't want conjecture. I want to know what the faction is that you lose, what faction you gain. If anyone happens to know where I won't be able to go afterwards (druids in EC for example?) I would appreciate it. I have no problem hunting in PoG and killing elf types. After all, most of Tunare's children have senselessly murdered my cousins on the Butcherblock Docks for centuries now. Evil droods!

Faction loss is as follows


These faction hits I recorded on my first trip to PoG. You will become KoS in PoG itself VERY fast.

As far as I can tell the first one is the only one you can not raise again.

RE: True effects of faction hits
# Jan 20 2002 at 10:45 PM Rating: Decent
The only way to raise clerics of tunare once you are KOS is an exploit. There is nothing(that i know of) in game you can kill to raise it. And all quests that do require you to be not KOS. faydarks champions is one of the Woodelf factions(believe druid but not completely sure) which can be raised by killing in crushbone. If your faction is high enough in Kelethin(wood elf city) there is one(maybe more but know of one) quest you can do that will raise the ClericsOfTunare faction.

I do not know what SoldiersOfTunare does. ProtectorsOfGrowth is PoG only.
RE: True effects of faction hits
# Jan 21 2003 at 5:02 PM Rating: Decent
Faydark's Champions are at the Ranger's Guild
Soldiers of Tunare are at the Druid's Guild
Both in Kelethin

All of these factions can be raised doing the muffins for pandos quest
If you are KOS in FP, invis up there
If you are KOS to Pandos, use the level 14 druid spell harmony (upgrade, Harmony of Nature will NOT work)

Any other faction questions?

Oh yeah, CB orcs will ONLY get you ranger faction, other then the elf king's faction (forget name Thex something), which is the guard faction in Kelethin and Felewithe.

Killing Barney the Dinosaur is the only way to get a positive faction hit for every faction in the game.

Kiting flamers on Kazam's will get you a negative faction hit with Allakhazam's and Disgruntled Posters, but will get you a positive faction hit with everyone else.

Watch out for the living beer in PoG
RE: True effects of faction hits
# Jul 23 2002 at 3:39 PM Rating: Decent
In fact there is a really easy quest for raising all 3 of these quests at once in Freeport assuming your not KoS there. It's called the muffin quest, and all you do is hand muffins to a dwarf and you get the faction hits. It's listed here so look it up. Also if you kill in growth you can still port to EC and other druid rings just fine, including Surefall Glades. Just elves cause trouble. FV is safe too, despite some rumors.
RE: True effects of faction hits
# Jul 20 2002 at 11:37 AM Rating: Decent
Hmm... Ok...

1.) There are a few ways to do quests even if you are KoS depending on your class that are NOT exploits.

Minor Illusion for enchanters (and obviously depending on there level, the appropriet faction spell.)


Charming the NPC if you need less than indifferent faction.

If the quest is given by a vendor, most cases a faction increasing song or spell will work since you can not be KoS to a vendor... Depending on the status of your faction this may not work though.

Wolf form may work depending on how low your faction really is and what your starting race is. (IE wolf form will make a Darkelf non kos to woodelves as long as he/she has not lost more faction with said race. A Woodelf who is KoS to other wood elves would still be kos in wolf.)

Faydark's Champions is the Ranger Guild in Kelethin

Soldiers of Tunare are the Wood Elven Druids

Clerics of Tunare is the Cleric guild in Felwithe.

So says the mighty Allonzo.

# Jan 21 2003 at 5:04 PM Rating: Decent
Charms do NOT work on Pandos, for the purpose of the quest. He will not attack, but you can hand in muffins for eternity, and your faction will never look different.

Harmony is the only way

Time to dispell the rumors, the only faction hit I took with the elves are the cleric and pally guildmasters. Big Whoop. I got mine off a guardian power. Another cleric got his off Treah Everstrong, named treant in PoG.

If any of the stuff I've read about other uber Velious loot is true, then there are generally two ways to get your item: talk to the NPC and do a quest for them to receive the item, or kill them and loot it. This means that all you hateful and fearful evil clerics can mount an assault on the minions of Tunare and loot your uber BP, and all you tree-hugging goody-two-shoe clerics can make friends with the Court of Tunare and quest for it.

you should be nice to them cause its call ROLE PLAYING. its kinda like saying "hey, your my friend. i love ya. have a nice car so your gonna have to die so i can have it". instead of getting a job and working for it.

there is a quest in neriak for clerics, about half way through the quest you get a halfling face to talk to a halfling. Get this face and then go to the plane and complete the quest. how easy

The mask (s)he is speaking of is and that would allow a dark elf cleric(or troll shaman) to look like a halfling, but you would still have Innoruuk faction to make you KoS.
