Paladin 1.0

Don't bother with open world rare spawns. Fill up your group window and use Agents of Change. *need gold sub to use Agents of Change*. I was able to complete the Paladin Epic in less than 6 hours using them.

Tip: When crafting bog juice and edible goo, farm the beetle eyes and rat ears in North Qeynos instead of West Freeport. Also, Make sure you have food and water before you craft them. Otherwise you will consume them.

Tip: When doing the Plane of Sky portion, buy the EFREETI Key from the Key Master. Many posts called it Veeshan's Key which is confusing. Put the Efreeti key on your cursor and click the northern pad to gain access to the quest room.

I used for most of the Paladin Epic. Google Bonzz paladin epic 1.0.

Quest The Sword
# Mar 08 2007 at 5:08 PM Rating: Decent
Look at it this way, If your a Paladin, quest the sword, or dont quest it. The choice is yours. Im questing mine regardless of what anyone says. Yes I have better weapons, and I've bought Armor, and Weapons from the Bazaar to, No harm in that, right?
I started EQ back in 2000 played till the end of 2004. In 4 years I still didnt have my Epic, because I was to busy Qeusting anything and everything, that a High Elf Paladin could do.
I stayed at lvl 52 for about 2 years, waiting for my turn at the books, well my turn never came, I gave up trying to get the book havles, and started grouping again.
By this time all my friends were way higher lvl then me, so I made new friends and got to lvl 55 and quested the Nature's Defender, shortly after that I quit EQ.
I was gone for 3 years, I have been back now for 3 months, and have come to realize now they have 1.5 and 2.0 Epics.
I have started lvling again, have went from 55 to 61 in a short time, but now im holding for more AA's, I dont want to get into big big game till I have better gear and stats. 3 year gap ( needs upgrade LOL).
Have also started wooking again on my Epic, and I must say it seems to be easier now then what I remember it used to be. Maybe because I see much larger
and harder quest to do with way better stats,
I'm almost finished with FA,Just need to do turn ins, my faction with DWK is Ally, I have Miragul's Head, and Robe, Soulfire, and Ghoulbane.
I need Tainted Breastplate, in Hate, and the Sword from the Keeper of the Tombs in the Hole,<<--- Once i have those items I can then do turn ins for my FD.
And if one of my friends gets married, and i am asked to go to the wedding, I'll be standing there with my FD, while everyone else goes on about how awsome that sword looks, Chances are you'll be the only Paladin there with your Epic FD glowing flame, yeah to me its still the best looking (sword) in the game.

Need Help Locating a Dragon
# Jan 15 2007 at 8:04 PM Rating: Default
Didn't have time to read so many posts here, so I thought I'd just leave a request for a little help.

If someone on Antonius Byron (or what ever it's called) could look me up and maybe help locate a dragon with me. I'd be so great full. Like so many of you, I detest the idea of buying anything in the bazaar that you are ment to quest for. I'm looking for the Burnt Book and I think a Frozen Book for the Firery Avenger.

If you would like to help, please do a /who all search for Frihet. I have many toons there and all are named Friheta, b, c, ect... So if you find one, it's me. I'm on around 6 PM CST.

Thanks so any willing to help.
1.5 pre-quest
# Aug 23 2006 at 6:08 AM Rating: Decent
I haven't seen any post here mention it but there is now a paladin 1.5 pre-quest you can do instead of this to get on your way to the 1.5 and 2.0 which are incredible plus it is a quest which should appeal to all those who seek honor and pride as well as being less reliant on permacamped dragons for drops so it should be more suited to those who don't wanna wait a week for a dragon to spawn and hope their book drops sure someone will have something bad to say but hey I am doing the prequest to accomplish something instead of my death and dissapointment I got from this quest

well.. i dunno if someone posted this already because im to lazy to read it all hehe..Have a keyed 4th island necromancer... acouple of friends... a wizzy... and send the friend with 500 or more pp... have the wizzy port everyone to Sky... and then have your friend go to the second island i belive or something and talk to a guy.. cheating way of that is just give me the pp * wait for until i tell u to * and then have the paladin die... necro run to 4th island... pally come back in zone.. necro summon the corpse to him... rezz the paladin...then have your friend turn in the 500 or however much pp it is to the guy....then paladin do the turn ins... ta da .. all done.. ( i know its not all the locations/names of guy/island the guy is on/etc.. but its just the necro summon thing that is the easiest.. its better then looking for all the keys hehe )
Buying Book of Scale
# Jun 10 2006 at 2:45 PM Rating: Decent
I saw someone ooc the book of scale in the baz on the Stromm server. I offered him 50K for it. He said it is worth 200K at least -,-. I said .. well I don't have that much ..guess I will just have to kill the dragons myself. HE said... "Good luck, I have them perma camped" Stinkin rotten that is what it is. 1000 different 'ifs' can go here. none of them can make this right. Any half way decently equiped group can take out a kunark dragon these days. every pally on every server should have this book. There is only one reason they do not. Permacampers. They are a HUGE problem. /petition SOE to make the book of scale NO DROP so the perma camping pigs get the heck off of out epic!!!! and...OMG DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK!!!! Our epic should be a mark of pride and personal accomplishment. If you buy the book, there is no pride, only shame and a lie. I will get my epic myself, or not at all.

What you need to do is put together a high DPS group that he can't steal majority damage away from that easily, then go kill the dragon, even if you have to KS the moron to do it. If GM does show up, point out the part in the PnP concerning monopolization of spawns and how you are there with an xp group, while he is there alone, obviously for purposes of cockblocking the content, which is against the rules. We all pay the same money each month, and we all have the same right to mobs and zones and to progress like everyone else does.

Oh, and be sure you bring him a nice train of friends to play with while you're at it.
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

# Dec 25 2005 at 4:04 PM Rating: Default
This effect works really well but some people may say it procs alot other less.You need haste for this item cuz 40 delay wont cut it with this kind of damage.I personally think you should not have a Flowing BLack Silk Sash (FBSS) for this weapon because you could be using something else for a belt such as a Benevolent Girdle which is a very common drop.Just aug it at level sixty three with a wayfarers soap stone thirty six percent haste and ten attack so i reccomend taking my advice.
Some info
# May 08 2005 at 11:42 AM Rating: Decent
Just my experience with this part of the epic. the Soulfire and Ghoulbane parts are relatively easy but there is that Book of Scale part that bogs ya down cause of the dragon farmers. Best bet is to buy the book in baz. Then the second trouble with this is the turn in in sky. Props to Isumondedpeepl for helping me with this. Good necro who summoned me to the 4th isle. easiest way to do it. Then there is faction with Inte Akera. mine wasnt high enough I found out the hard way so went to sky for nothing. To fix faction easily there is a necro with 100hps max in Toxxulia forest near the docks of the river on a 5 min timer, kill him then work on fishing for 1.5 at same time. To check faction with deepwater knights simply go into erudin to the deepwater paladin guild bottom floor con the paladin chick Brenda i think her name is not sure. But when you con looks upon you warmly then your good to go.
Book of Scale

I am looking to buy the Book of Scale for this part. This is last piece I need before Miragul. I am on the Rodcet Nife server under "Himek" If you have please send tell and I will make a good offer.

just fyi i have just recieved this weapon on Prexus server and im ABSOLUTLY IN LOVE WITH IT, i have a rune lance of gryme on my pally too, which is 37dmg 32dly and 3 disease dmg

now granted it has stats too and whatnot but the epic hits for around 240 constant, maxed str, and procs for 110 + lvl 63 proc of 150,

whereas the lance hits for around 260 - 280 and just procs for 150, and hits a lil faster. i dunno bout you guys but with 80% haste, when grped, doesnt really matter what the dly is basically, and this is just the avenger that i like more =P cant wait for defender

Only a game is right
# Jun 30 2003 at 6:48 AM Rating: Default
I agree with post about this only being a game . If you choose not to get your Pally epic that is great for you, but please be kind to those that want to get it. I'm just finishing mine hopefully , just need to do turn ins and i'm completed.The quest is long and difficult and it will be a slight improvement to what i'm currently using.
We need to support one another not make each other feel bad. The game is about enjoyment. So either way if you choose to get or not to get both are correct. Enjoy all and have fun.
Not about easy or hard!
# Jun 10 2003 at 10:39 AM Rating: Excellent
You guys are arguing about nothing. If someone wants to buy a weapon and not deal with doing the epic, that's a fine decision. They should not feel bad or any other way. This is a game. On the other hand, if someone does put the hours and hours of time and effort into getting their epic, they should be comended. There's no need to put other people down to try and make yourself feel better. If you don't want it, don't get it. If you do, want it, that's great too. I will certainly do my best to get mine. To me there is no greater feeling than finally finishing that long **** quest you've been working on for the last god knows how long. Will I be proud when I have it, you're darn right! It's an ultra rare epic because it's a very difficult quest. Will I feel better than those who chose not to get it? No. Because this is a game. And I, nore anyone for that matter, should give a ratz **** how someone else wants to play it. =)

P.S. I got some ice cream, you got no ice cream.. da da da da da! =) LOL

This weapon may not deal the damage some of the other "new" weapons may deal, but going through the whole quest and recieveing FD give a paladin a sense of Pride (if attained by actually doing the quest without ahem' outside help.), and undoubtedly recieve some admiration from other players. As I remember in a post from here a GM said "stop and sit down a bit and take in all that has been created." This game was built on such quest for the fun and sense of accomplishment.
Epic? Why when you can Buy?
# Apr 23 2003 at 5:36 AM Rating: Decent
For those that find reward in the prestige, honor and accomplishment that comes from completing a difficult epic quest, more power to them, but for those limited in time, patience, or:
1. ability to get raids going that are successful
2. getting into guilds that will yield good raids
3. getting those books from the raids to drop
4. paying 1500p for the sword which is hard to get
5. getting a sword (even the Fiery Defender) which is in comparison dated, yes has good stats and good proc and can bash, but inferior damage/delay
6. time to do a difficult quest
7. would rather gain xp and loot from not doing a quest and regular gaming
I think it would be a better use of time, in my humble opinion, to save up a mere 2000p (saw it for 1000p on Rodcet Nife) and get the Worn Shai`din Naginata (37damage 45 delay +6str +6sta +2 wis 7 damage bonus) and a FBSS, or get the Reaver (40 damage 40 attack delay, 4500p). you would get these weapons faster, deal out more damage at an equal or faster rate, and not have to put up with endless amounts of frustration and work to complete the quest. Sure quests are rewarding in and of themselves, take it from one who has quested an entire suit of armor, but there is something to be said from good old fashioned killing and looting and buying.

I've personally seen procs for over 2k from FD's, and I've read of procs of over 3.6k from FD's.

Better figure out what the weapon is truly capable of before you go knockin' it.

Im guessing the Paladin was using AA skill "slay undead" which lets you do 2k-5k+ attacks on undead. Theres no way no how a Paladin can do that much damage with this weapon (any weapon) any other way. It takes 18 AA points to get the third level of Slay Undead and 18 points of prerequisites to spend those points.
ok; a question-
# Feb 14 2003 at 6:56 PM Rating: Decent
All arguments aside (if you want to quest the sword, cool-I am because I put this much into it already and like the sense of accomplishment; not to mention that it IS a nice weapon regardless)...when you go to turn-in the head/robe/soulfire/ghoulbane do you give all items at once, or give soulfire, then ghoulbane, then the tokens and the head/robe? Am thinking it's the second (soulfire, then ghoulbane, then the tokens and head/robe) but want to make sure.

Also, I have a weapon already that is comparable-widebladed greatsword 35/35 ac 25 bunch of other stats (bought in bazaar for 8kpp) but hey-some people just kie the simple fact of the quest...and even after I get a windblade I'm STILL going to use FD too :)

I did the quest years ago so bear with me... you need to turn in the ghoulbane and the soulfire to get your two tokens. You then turn in those tokens with the Head and Robe of Miragul, and you will get your FA. I'm pretty sure if you check the quest here it will provide all the details.
Some of y'all make me laugh

First of all, with regards to epics, they are ALL difficult to do. Some just take longer to camp than others. If any of you mindless 14-year olds who keep complaining that these quests take too long because you have mommy and daddy making you do homework, you might want to start looking at another game like Diablo or some godawful hack'n'slash that requires absolutely minimal thought process and effort to play.

Secondly, anyone who thinks Paladins are weak need to pull their heads of their own **** and quit drinking those shiny little bottles they keep finding under their kitchen sinks. Hybrids (except for maybe Rangers since they can barely tank at end game) = Best Agro and Taunting Tanks hands down. With the exception of a few weapons that will put a Warrior over the top on the Hate list, Paladins and SKs are the best at maintaining and regaining agro.

This weapon sucks? Yeah sure, in your F-ed up prepubescent logic, if you start comparing it with all of the horrific items VI seems to be dishing out from PoP, but does every single player in the game have access to the weapons? Hardly.

My pally has been 52 for too long now... got his books... sigh..

Now, it's a matter of finding Miragul, Keeper of Tombs, and Kirak Vil up.

On my server, all these mobs are dead within a very short time of pop on my server.

I'm not leveling past 52 till I get miragul.. don't want to have to delevel to start again... but I guess run 3 at lev 52 is nice...
Well, I killed Kirak, got the shield, run to felwith, and Elia the Pure tries to kill me... from one pog raid... I'm amiable in the rest of the city. So it's off to work on faction endlessly

The 53+ Level rule only applies to the old world dragons. It does not apply to Miragul. Once you have the burnt and frozen books from the dragons, go ahead and level to your heart's content.
RE: Not easy
# Feb 10 2003 at 6:38 AM Rating: Decent
Miragul is a triggered need to wait.

Just turn in your book of scale to the oracle in OOT and get the phylactery. Take the phylactery to Everfrost and give it to Miragul's Lich and voila! you have Miragul.

Just make sure you have the force available to kill him because you will have to do the entire book of scale part over again if he despawns.

I am down to the Burnt Book (must...kill...Naggy) and the sword from the Keeper in the Hole. Finding it hard to stop drooling over the thought of getting FA and ultimately FD.

Say what you will about these weapons sucking, but I think having the ability to bash with a nice 2HS weap is a big plus. Especially since I don't have a zillion AA points to dump into Two-Hand Bash. Add to this the fact that FA and FD weigh stamina drain means no distraction for healers when you need a ZING! in combat.

While Miragul is a triggered spawn, Miragul's Lich is not. I'm reasonably sure that Miragul's Lich is a seven day spawn, so if another Paladin on your server has done this part of the quest recently, you may have to wait a bit to do it again.

I bound my druid alt at a safe spot in the Everfrost caves near where Miragul's Lich spawns so I could check to see when he was up. Took about a week before he respawned.

#REDACTED, Posted: Nov 17 2002 at 1:09 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) This weapon sucks, plain and simple. There are so many better weapons out there, and they are so easy to purchase, that both this and the epic now suck pretty hardcore and are complete trash. Hell, even the graphic sucks.

I agree that this looks very difficult...

Near epic...

But could you say it in a nicer way? By calling someone a ****** because they gave people reading this quest encouraging words, you only succeed in making yourself look like an ********* And by the way, people do NOT like ********** They hate them. They do not respect them out of fear OR esteem. Actually, most people would just as soon kill an ******** as look at them. So adjust your attitude. Now.

Actually he was quoting someone else (it was an Awful rated post) so in actuality he WAS being nice =) Btw this weapon is by no means "crappy" or "sucks"; OBVIOUSLY takes a while to get but that is the point, hence the name EPIC weapon.
