Why is it flagged for ELF? What ELF race can be a Shaman?
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?
epic 1.0 faction grind path is indeed working
# Aug 08 2011 at 11:30 PM Rating: Decent
someone gave me a broodling kill for the tear, i had planned on doing 1.5 prequest so was at 0 true spirit faction.
I ground out max faction by repeating step 1 of the quest to max faction (that is the key you must be at max faction just ally faction is not enough)
i then went and completed the rak kill for the scale, handed in and was given the spear.
I did no other parts of the quest and so the powers that be have not added in any invisible flags.

shammy 1.0 "shortcut"
# Oct 14 2008 at 4:48 PM Rating: Decent
If you choose to "short-cut" the 1.0 quest, and just repeat the turn in to the wandering spirit for faction, be sure to kill and loot Lord Ghiosk's books to turn in while you are in CoM to get Lord Rak. I killed rak and got the scale, however spirit sentinel wouldnt accept it until he got Ghiosk's books
Important for Shamans

------> ATTN: SHAMANS <------

If you get frustrated with 1.0 quest (I.E. stuck on golems in fear) and start the 1.5 prequest it requires you to turn in your Black Fur Boots. If you DO this and then go back to your 1.0 YOU HAVE TO REDO THE ENTIRE EPIC FROM THE BEGINNING. Turning in the boots will UNFLAG your 1.0 and you have to start over and go back to that point. After you kill the Black Dire and get the boots again, you can head for the Spirit Sentinel in the pond and finish your final hails. EVEN if you have already turned in the Iksar Scales.
EPIC Trouble Please Help!
# May 29 2007 at 8:57 AM Rating: Decent
I did all parts of Epic in order up to the point where I turn the Icon to High Scale Kirn in the Hole. This portion of the quest was bugged I just kept on getting the response of "I have no use for this xxxxx you can have it back". I petitioned and the GM's acknowledged that yes this was a bug and gave me the engraved ring. I attempted to give this ring to "Neh Ashiir" in CoM and received the same response "I have no use for this xxxxx you can have it back".
I petitioned again and am getting nowhere, my guess is that because I actually did not kill the Epic version of the High Scale Kirn to receive the message "your faction with True Spirit got better". That's where my "missing" faction is. Any idea's???? Thanks in Advance

I had the same problem on my ogre shaman. You have faction problem. Do the first part of epic about 8-10 times or until you get the max faction message (your faction with true spirit could not possibly get any better) and it will work.

Test of Patience is a little screwy
# Sep 14 2006 at 8:24 AM Rating: Decent
I just did the test of patience last night...the test is a little messed up right now.. first OOglyn was soo fast I lost her almost immediately. Once I found the spawn point for the npc's Srafen, Dillon were no shows. I started with Froham the Abe..then the greater sirit, who spawned over my head. I still received the small gem and I was able to finish the test. The sharks did attack me in the spawn point, so be careful. I am level 51 so I crushed them with no problem. However it was annoying.

My 2006 Epic Info WriteUP from Today
# Jul 26 2006 at 1:10 AM Rating: Decent
Hello, I just wanted to do a little FYI since i just redid a second shammy 1.0 epic.

Took me 2 days to do it.

The parts were really easy to do, except that I wanted to point out a few things.

1. Ooglyn and her friends, were nuts. Not only did they take forever but several things happened.
a) The mobs TOOK FOREVER To spawn. I know its the trial of patience, but holy crap. DO NOT MOVE from your spot once you get there PERIOD. STAY there i mean we are talking 5-10 minutes in some cases, at least that is how long it was for me.
b) I did NOT get 2 NPCS to spawn at the same time as mentioned above.
The next 2 NPCs spawn at the same time and speak to each other as well as you.

This is flat out not true. What happened was Srafen the Soaked was up and then Dillon the Drowned spawned.

Now here is where it deviates from above.

No 2 NPCS did NOT spawn together, Srafen was already up, and then Dillion Spawned.

Next, I said all the phrases etc. about 10minutes later Srafen said, pretty much, that is it I am out of here and freakin swam off, and Dillion said, me too wait for me. That isn't mentioned aboved.

About 2-5minutes later, The next NPC spawned Froham the Forgotten

Now he sat there after i talked with him and finally... his dumb **** swam away. I swear these mobs were on super slow mo, I mean seriously up to 12minutes one time to get one to even move..

Finally Abe Spawned, and I completed that part, however it took a LONG time and it was a LOONNGGG time before the Spirit spawned so please be patient. i mean REALLY REALLY patient to the point you think your screwed cause NO NPC's are arounda nd you are going, omg i gotta start over... relax you dont, just DONT move.

2. The spirit in West Karana, I mentioned this above but i found him in the bottom S.W. corner in a square pattern size shape. Near the ) in fletcher and the clemens or cleatus or whatever his name is just above and to the right of that. Take a tracker/follow the road you WILL find him.

3. The pages... man if you can get an AE or you have a massive HP/DPS person and a healer... pull like 20-30 at a time and you will get them fast, accept for the Courier.

a) The courier spawened 2 times for me before i got the log. First time he spawned in the west stables, which doesn't look like stables at all, its just an open area with a door on your left and 2 doors on your right. The doors on your right a little L-Shaped rooms with a mob/2 in it. The left side is a LONG L-Shaped room where, when you go into it and you end up having to turn left(face east) to get to the mobs after entering the door. The courier spawned in the Left Back Corner. I had skeleton and phantom PH's so it doesn't have to be just apparitions/phantoms. Heck even another named spawned there.

The second time he spawned was in the east stables, in the right doored room when in the east stables, facing the west stables.

So, to get to the stables, zone in, go through the gates, stay to the RIGHT, you will end up in the first main area, that leads to the back, you can go right, left, or straight to the back, you want to stay to the right. You will(if your the only ones in there) see a mob about 15 feet up, 4 feet before him you can go right or left.

That is the west/east stables

4. You can kill Captain of the Guard to get the key for the first door to the Reavers. This will allow you to kill Riosk or whatever his name is with the books. At 70(and maybe before) you can single pull him out. i ran from stables... to their and back and got him and like only 10 mobs, easy to avoid aggro and they are stupid lowbies.

5. If you train yourself while pulling reavers, just remember.. make sure to have him targetteda nd keep attacking with your hotkeys, as he will blind you, and have your shammy looking at what you are doing for you. (if your boxing like me), And when he dies, just hit F8 get a new target and go, or click him with shammy then while blind type /assist shammyname and go

6. That key gets you through the first door but thats it, you need a rogue after that. Now above everyone says you need 200 or 201, not true, my rogue WITH +2% to Pick Lock ONLY had 196 period... and opened all the doors NP.

7. Go upstairs, kill the girl, get the diary, i had let me see i think 3 or 4 reavers spawn. You do NOT need levi. Just jump from ledge to ledge rogue open door, puller run in aggro him and get out fast, so he doesnt blind you so you dont fall off. Then run off. I had my rogue sneak/hide the second he opened the door(which u can actually do before).

The reaver is stupid, sometimes he appears to have fallen off if you run back to the room to fast, he didnt, he is running around in circles behind the building, just step out go back toward he floating tower a bit and bingo he will come. Kill him get the book

8. Loot the key off her which controls the elevator that leads to the last reavers and to Nair or Ashir or whatever the heck he is called don't feel like scrolling ;-).

when you go into the reaver tower and you are looking at the first reaver, if you could look through HIM and the wall behind him you will see a wooden floor, thats the elevator, get on it, click it with key and go up.

Watch out soon as you go up two mobs and a reaver are right there. Kill them. I actually got Phantoms to pop off the reavers NOT more reavers(weird eh).


I went to fear, thinking yeah right, freakin farmers will have these dead, and since i took my 0 zero to 58 in two days, and I had looted a tear with my paladin long ago(but no faction anyway), I went back.

Holy crap ALL 3 were up. I went in, another person was there to do the same epic, I had like 25 mobs on me in Fear, person was from RIP, we teamed up(really cool bard), he sat there ae slowing/dotting everything while i tanked(also) and healed and smashed stuff. We killed Terror, i got my tear(although we had a HUGE train that wiped all my alts, cause i got triple chain teleported by freakin scarlings LOL. it was nuts.

Then we killed Fright/Dread. Got CRAP DROPS, no AONS just CRAP... but the guy from RIP let me have it all, really cool person, great player too.

So we both got our epics done.

Now some info on fright/terror/dread.

For the love of God, clear around them first, esp if your not real real experienced, we literally had 20+ mobs on us and we knew wtf we were doing and level 70 blah blah but its fear, they just aggro like mad and come whenever. Scarlings are the ONLY pain in the ***** cause they teleport, otherwise we smashed it all easy easy.

When it came time for Dters, i sent up my shaman(wimpiest of all of us and had tear off terror), he took DT, i ran up, tanked DT'er and bard took out the 2 mobs next to him, both times i had him under 10%(3% on dread lol) before he dt'd me again the fekker...

SO like 33second fights.

9. The next room has 3 reavers, i pulled them all, killed #1, he popped, i was blinded lol luckily my other chars weren't so i didnt turn on attack yet, i stood there getting hit by the other 2 reavers. I then turned in the tear with my shammy, he aggroed i assisted while blind to my shammy, /cast 1 for group pally heal, it got off, instant aggro.. i fought him.

The other 2 reavers still beating on me(wimps)..

When he died, the golems, whom i never hit yet, died instantly at the same time off my 140 DS from my bard etc. Two phantoms spawned from their corpses(again NOT reavers) phantoms...

Looted items and left.

The only pain I thought was going to be fear and it ended up being fine, just a pain to run all them bots around.

Cheers, and GLuck starting on my 1.5 tomorrow :-)

Gratz to shammy epic 1.0

A reminder, if someone doesn't know: you can get a friend shroud to rogue, but of course they still have to buy picklocks. I shrouded to a 70 roge did this for a guilde and could open door, don't know what skill I had.

A tip for shammy epic 1.5
* Get your Howling Stones (charasis) key while you still can get some exp for it
* Farm Howling Stones for goos while you get some exp for it. HS is the real test of patience, you need 2 drops and it takes for ever. South and East wing is said to take for ever. You need rogue for HS too, or levi over to East wing.

But 1.5 is worth everything it takes.

Yes when you reach max faction it gives you messege you cannot raise your faction anymore.So though you may be ALLY faction it still may not be completely maxxed.So if doing Shm epic just by the gettin faction keep doin the turn-ins till gives you faction maxxed statement.

Alt epic 1.5 path
# Jan 07 2005 at 5:14 AM Rating: Default
For the record, the alt epic 1.5 path if you do NOT have epic 1.0 is FAR harder than just getting epic 1.0. If anyone was foolish enough to take the alt epic 1.5 path, I feel very sorry for you. With a decent group, you can do the entire epic 1.0 in a matter of a couple hours. The shaman 1.0 epic is by far the easiest in the game, much easier than camping all that miscellaneous stuff in various zones for the alt path to 1.5.
RE: Alt epic 1.5 path
# Jun 24 2005 at 9:11 PM Rating: Default
this cannot be done in a matter of hours unless you are one lucky ******* with a very strong group. first you have to wait on things to be up, then theres the trial of patience which takes hours alone. Then there is killing neh ashiir and then going to the hole. Then raiding fear, with the off change the golumns are up, you gotta hope that there not next to ct. then finally u gota get a rogue to pick lock to get up to final turn in room for rak.

RE: Alt epic 1.5 path
# Nov 02 2005 at 6:38 PM Rating: Decent
The key is dropped from Neh`Ashiir, I killed her two times and it dropped both times.

It is called "Key of Torsis" however it is a no rent item and does not go on your key ring. So you must aquire the key everytime you want to use the elevator

Good news is that the elevator can be picked. I have only used a rogue (200+ skill) and a bard (125 skill) so if a bard can pick the lock, it doesnt take much

Glawin....53 Shm on Prexus finally got this to drop. Spent a week of evenings in CoM killing the apparitions and anything that moved to get this. The common drop being the Illegible Scroll for monks. Must have killed the Spectral Courier 100 times. Upside to all the camping was I looted a mess of newbie caster items that my trader is making a fortune from. I also while waiting for the spawn picked up the High Scale Icon from the room. Lucked into a group killing the room that Lord Ghiosk spawns in and got the books for free. To all you Shm looking for this awesome epic toy...g/l in obtaining the Students Log. That has to be the most difficult part of the quest. Killing all the big names after this will be easy with everyone having friends in thier 60's in this day and age.

The Mana Free dot plus the stats are well worth it. Even though we dont get the dmg bonus since we are not melee, it is still a good wpn. I regularlly hit aroung 70 with a 200 piercing skill and a 950 atk. Add SLTW or chanter haste and this thing is great for solo or group.
MQ of Tear to Rak'Ashiir
# Jul 06 2004 at 12:39 PM Rating: Default
Does anyone know if the tear can be MQ'd by a Shaman who already has completed the quest and has epic? I have heard this is possible but do not want to mess up my own epic by trying this and having it fail.
RE: MQ of Tear to Rak'Ashiir
# Jul 13 2004 at 12:38 AM Rating: Default
It can indeed be MQ'ed!! But the shaman with the tear must redo their epic or use the faction bug (Envy and Woe turn in) to get max faction again. Also make sure your faction is maxed out, and to do this without doing the turnin you must use the faction bug. This, however, is looked down upon. Good luck!

I was just wondering if it would be a good idea if I went ahead and started my Epic quest. If so, what would be the easiest and fastest route to my awesome reward? I don't have a lot of time usually. I am the mother of four children, unless you count my husband and that makes FIVE. So, I want to get in and do what needs to be done with as little sitting time as possible. If anyone can help me I would forever be in your debt.

Ok silly question here. I am not a total noobie, but I am just working to get a raid on Lord Rak to finish my epic.

Thanks for the help.
RE: Damage bonus

The Damage Bonus rating of a weapon depends on three factors:

1. The delay of the weapon.

2. The level of the wielder.

3. The type of weapon (1 hand or 2 hand).

Unfortunately, only melee classes actually get the damage bonus (even though it is displayed when examining non-melee class weapons like this), so the Spear of Fate will only be a 20/30 in the hands of a Shaman, no matter what level they are.

Any hints on the quest, toughness, or stats of the 2nd epic? It's been posted by sony that its aimed for players at the upper end of the level spectrum, but just how high do they mean?

They've also posted a pic of what it will look like. Is that a 2hd or a 1hb?

Also, will we be able to keep our v1.0 epic as well? or is it consumed as part of the v2.0 quest?

Would love any answers or comments =)

Hey all,
I'm an Iksar Shaman and I was wondering what is the lowest possible level to finish the quest at? I have a good guild that can help me, and i want my Spear of Fate ASAP!!! I was also wondering if I had to gain some faction first or do I gain enough during the quest itself? Also, since I am Iksar.... When the greater spirit in the Pub asks what I follow, I say fear. Does it maike the quest different for all the races? B/C all the quests i look at just follow the barbarian choice (justice). Please help me out with my questions. Thanks so much...

RE: Level? Faction?
# Apr 25 2004 at 2:18 AM Rating: Decent
For the tear to be MQ'd, both shamans have to be max ally. I have never seen it done, but it's one of those things everyone seems to believe. The problem is though, to get ally you have to do the entire quest and/or repeat some parts to get faction. (I'm sure you're thinking, ok, so what?) However, upon doing your final turn in, your faction is reset. I'm sure anyone who was really serious in doing the MQ, would work around that though.

As far as I know, if any NPCS talk about a quest, they will let you do it. That has been the case in other quests. I've seen a level 35 do the turn in with Kirn in the Hole, so you can at least get that far.

I believe the dialog with the Greater Spirit in Freeport is mostly just roleplay. And, from a roleplay standpoint, the Shaman epic is awesome. There is actually an interesting story line, not just running around doing stuff for NPCs who are otherwise too lazy to do it themselves.

Hope that helps some :)

As far as I know, if any NPCS talk about a quest, they will let you do it.

Telin Darkforest will start you on the ranger epic and give you the Worn Note before level 50. Now I can't say from experience as I waited until after 50 to do the turn ins, but all posts I've read say you will lose your items if you attempt it before level 50.

Up to you, just be warned. Good luck

Faction will increase as you go, i read some posts about skipping a part but you can go back and do other parts over to get faction up. I don't think the quest will be any different, i am Iksar and was the same as walkthru. As far as minimum level I would say 46 since ya gotta go to Plane of Hate altho I have heard that the tear can be MQd.
