Absolutely Worth It
# Nov 13 2014 at 11:51 AM Rating: Decent
I started this chain of quests reluctantly because the end aug is nice but not amazing for the amount of work. It's important to note that there are lots of VERY nice armour and jewelry rewards along the way, better IMHO than the aug itself! I got lots of Paragon's chain and jewelry.

It IS worth it!!

not worth it?

I was doing this quest, but ended up putting it off until now...

Now, I don't think the aug is worth it :(

How is a 32 AC 70 H/M/E not worth it? At lvl 70, it is a DANG nice aug.
You might have to put some work in to getting it, but since you are leveling anyway, do the quests and you get something out of it at the end.

Just looted "Infected Animal Organs" from a pustulant cadaver in OGV.

Odd, I know... I guess zombies really do like brains !

Combination Containers – Sold by Cirtan, Bayle's Herald
Heraldic Crest Repair Kit, Empty Heraldic Crest Frame

If you don't have the maps you are screwed, so go get them.

Make sure you have plenty of room for new quests, an open inventory slot and lots of room in inventory to loot. Your best bet is to always get as many quests as you can because many of them overlap and are best done simultaneously and most can be done in any order.

PHASE 1------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When you zone into Oceangreen Hills (OGH) head south to the tower near the West Karana zoneline. Find Sergeant Bronal Cadran (marked on map) and get his first quest. Head south and kill the Magus (marked on map). Report back to Bronal and get his 2nd quest. This one is easy, pop into Oceangreen Village (OGV) and kill 15 Cultists by the temple. Go back to OGH and Hail Sgt. Bronal on your way north to the Paladin Fortress (NE corner).

Sergeant Bronal Cadran #1 – Man the Defenses (Crest Upper Right Field Plate)
Sergeant Bronal Cadran #2 – No Cure for Death (Crest Upper Right Field Frame)

Get all the quests you can from the fort then head to the Druid Glade (Surefall Glade). The Briars and Treants in the Glade are undead and kos, so IVU to get past them safely. The bears are just bears and usually dont agro.

Paladin Fortress
Jeneca Orlefen – Follow your Nose (Crest Keep Wall Plate)
Tabron Caulria #1 – Does this Look Infected (Crest Keep Wall Frame)
Garvin Windrunner #1 – Reduce the Risk (Crest Lower Left Field Plate)

Kerrin is in the very back of the bear caves and is marked on your map. Easiest way to get to her is to enter the caves thru the waterfall then stay to your left until you reach the water. Swim across the underground lake and you will see her on the shore.

Druid Glade
Kerrin the Unkempt – Poach the Poachers (Crest Upper Left Field Frame)
Kerrin the Unkempt #1 – Cure the Crud (prerequisite)

Now head south to Oceangreen Village (OGV) and go all the way to the village itself. Get the three quests from the villagers.

Ocean Green Village
Yvette Miller – Good Seeds (Crest Lower Right Field Frame)
Dan Hearthpride – Arms of the Dead (Crest Lower Right Field Plate)
Victor Snowborn – Paint Supplies (Crest Lower Field Plate)

Yvette and Dan live in the two northern houses or may be found in the gardens nearby. Victor spawns on the dock west of the village and roams the village and as far east as the Ruins.

Now it's time to KILL!! Be prepared to be in OGV a while. Rake the zone killing everything in sight and loot every No Trade item you find. The only thing you don't need to kill are wisps. Be careful of undead and wisps in this zone, they are under-conned.

The three best camps are: 1) just north of the Temple for cultists, wolves, and bears; 2) west side of ruins for rats, bats, and snakes; 3) north end of village for undead. You'll get sprinklings of different mobs at each camp, but the above lists the majority.

UPDATE: You no longer get credit for killing infected animals in OGV. Must kill 15 infected animals in OGH.

Collect the following items in OGV: 1 Blackened Deathcap (any animal), 1 Snake Venom Gland (snake), 1 Fetid Flesh (zombie), 1 Fine Bear Skin (bear), 3 Wolf Whiskers (wolf), 4 Wild Blueberry Branch (rat), 4 Wild Bloodberry Branch (rat), 5 Handful of Grain Seeds (any animal), 5 Infected Animal Organ (any infected animal), 10 Irregular's Signet Ring (undead), 10 Rusted Blade Fragments (undead).

Once you have those items do your turn-ins to the villagers then go back to OGH. While in OGH anyone who can should Forage constantly! Each person will need 1 Pinecone, 1 Oceangreen Wheatgrass, and 4 Maggots (bazaar?).

In OGH you need to kill any poachers you run across (need 4) and kill skeletons to loot 1 Reanimated Bone Dust. Also, find and kill Migglethorpe the Putremancer, he is normally in the northeast of the zone and south of the fort. Lastly, when you come across an “infected >animal< corpse” (dead at 100% health), /open it and loot the Undamaged Animal Organ (looks like a heart). When you're done, Hail Sergeant Bronal Cadran to complete his quest and head to the fort.

By now you should have completed Man the Defenses, No Cure for Death, Follow your Nose, Does this Look Infected, Reduce the Risk, Good Seeds, Arms of the Dead, Paint Supplies, and maybe Poach the Poachers. Don't worry about Kerrin's quests right now though, you can complete them later.

PHASE 2------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As you complete the 1st quests for Garvin and Tabron you will also be able to immediately complete their 2nd quests. You are done with Garvin but Tabron has a 3rd quest for you. Do what he says, get the vials in OGV, visit the ocean west of the village, visit the pond east of the village, go back to OGH, visit the lake in the northwest corner, then go back into the glade and fill your last vial in the first pool you see (big waterfall).

Paladin Fortress
Tabron Caulria #2 – Salving Grace (Crest Keep Frame)
Tabron Caulria #3 – Test the Waters (Crest Kepp Tower Frame)
Garvin Windrunner #2 – Names for the Faceless (Crest Lower Left Field Frame)

If you haven't finished Kerrin's Poachers and Crud quests do so now. Return to her to complete them and get her Stop the Spreading quest. Then kill undead plants in the glade to finish Kerrin's quests.

Druid Glade
Kerrin the Unkempt #2 – Stop the Spreading (Crest Lower Field Frame)

Head back to the fort and Hail Tabron to complete his 3rd quest. By now you should be able to get a quest from Seradi and both quests from Darianna (first floor inside the fort). Kill the zombies, destroy the catapults, and slaughter the corpses.

TIP ~ you can ranged attack the corpses with bow or spells without agroing the zombies. Just don't get too close.

When you are finished with the zombies, Hail Darianna then head back to the Glade to do the bidding of Seradi.

Paladin Fortress
Archon Darianna Althus #1 – Thinning the Rank (Crest Keep Plate)
Archon Darianna Althus #2 – Plague from Above (Crest Keep Tower Plate)
Seradi Stormcaller – The Deathless (Crest Upper Left Field Plate)

When you are done with Seradi, you can go get the last quest in OGV from Apothecary Cadmael. This is a bit long and involved, but then what else is new. For this part you will need a group.

Allah's guide (linked below) explains everything. Go into the Temple and kill until you have the 7 scraps. Do your turn-ins to get your Cipher and Manual and consult the guide for the translation. Clear the alter room and stand in the middle, /say your translation and kill the named that spawns.

Oceangreen Village
Apothecary Cadmael – A Secret Hidden in Plain Sight (Crest Left Upper Field Frame)

At this point you should have all the village, fort, Kerrin, and Bronal quests complete. Only thing left is the gnoll quests which also give you Blackburrow access.

PHASE 3------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Go to the Darkpaw Camp in the Southwest corner of OGH. The gnolls there are not kos so don't worry about them attacking unless you attack them. If you are having problems getting into Blackburrow, you may need to have all the Darkpaw quests active.

Darkpaw Camp
Fripp Darkpaw – What Evil Lurks in the Heart of Gnolls? (Crest Left Upper Field Plate)
Fripp Darkpaw – Send the Message (Crest Center Upper Field Frame)
Bracka Darkpaw – Summary Execution (Crest Right Upper Field Plate)
Elder Mystic Foppye – Invading the Invaders (Crest Right Upper Field Frame)

Kill Blackburrow Lurkers in OGH near the BB entrance to loot the Supplies. Once in BB head to the Elite Ledge camp (enter the zone and stay to the right until you reach a door then follow the tunnel all the way down until you see a suspended rope bridge, cross the bridge and the back side of the island is the camp). I recommend you invis to get there, just watch out for undead.

Clear the island and cross the second bridge going up. Clear those mobs out then talk to Guard Ellery and escort him back to the OGH zoneline killing gnolls along the way. You can /say "Stop" or "Go" to Ellery to control his movement.

Guard Ellery – Run to Daylight (Crest Center Upper Field Plate)

The run out will complete most every task in BB except maybe Send a Message. If you still need the gnoll finger, invis up and go back in to kill any named. Easiest one spawns right on the island under the wooden frame thing.

Last step, go see the gnolls in Darkpaw camp to finish their quests then head to the fort and talk to Captain Hiran Tillin on the second floor to finish Run to Daylight.

Have an inventory slot open for a container. Cirtan, Bayle's Herald in the fort sells the Crest Repair Kits, buy them one at a time to combine the pieces. Lastly, buy the Heraldic Crest Frame from Cirtan and combine the Fields and Keep to get Bayle's Heraldic Crest.

For those who don't have the bank space or bag space to hold all the parts, they can be "sold" to Tavid Dennant in the Guild Lobby. He gives one chronobine per part. When it comes time to do the combines, you can "buy" back the parts from Tavid Dennant for one chronobine each.

Great post, BludKlaw... thx! Great advice on the order for the quests. I've been going through with just my healer merc without any trouble, except for one last quest:

A Secret Hidden in Plain Sight (Crest Left Upper Field Frame)

If there's a way to break the Throne Room with just a Ranger and a healer merc, I can't seem to figure it out. Anyone got any tips? I've been invising and running around through the tunnel to the back of the throne, and then single/double pulling mobs to the back. It works with the golems and a few of the wandering mobs, but the little packed groups are not easy to break, and my crowd control tactics always seem to agro another group, and then it's a quick dash to the zone.

Oh well, might have to bite the bullet and get a group together to finish the last quest. No big deal - it's been a fun adventure all the same.

Thanks again BludKlaw for laying out the steps so well.

To clear things up, you can get most the quests at any time and in any order. Only exceptions I can think of are:

Must complete Sgt Bronal 1 to get Sgt Bronal 2.

Must complete Garvin 1 to get Garvin 2.

Must complete Tabron 1 to get Tabron 2, and complete Tabron 2 to get Tabron 3.

Archon Darianna will not give her quests until you have finished all Sgt. Bronal and Tabron quests.

Complete Kerrin 1 to get Kerrin 2. Cure the Crud is a prerequisite for Stop the Spreading. You must complete Crud before she will give the next quest.

Kerrin 2, Stop the Spreading, and Tabron 3, Test the Waters, are prerequisites for The Deathless. You must finish all 3 Tabron and all 3 Kerrin quests for Seradi to give her quest.

So within those limits, you can do the quests in whatever order you want. However, the way I listed them is the easiest order I have found in my dozen or so runs through it.

Ideal for Shields
# Feb 18 2009 at 2:43 AM Rating: Decent
This Augmentation is very ideal to have on shields most especially if you like to Bash with shields, the higher the AC on the shield you bash with the more greater the damage.

This alone has been proven by Hulkling, one of the EQ community leaders and I give him full credit for this info below . . .

5 AC - 215 max dmg
30 AC - 215 max dmg
35 AC - 215 max dmg
40 AC - 222 max dmg
55 AC - 222 max dmg
65 AC - 222 max dmg (35 AC + 30 aug)
80 AC - 228 max dmg (55 AC + 25 aug)
85 AC - 228 max dmg (55 AC + 30 aug)

So in case if your obsessed with Bashing with Shields, this aug is for you.

The bash is irrelevant.
Always put the highest ac aug on a shield because shield ac isn't affected by the softcap.

And there are a few 35ac augs out there.

If someone could post how to combine the 20+ quested plate/frame parts to get to this, that would be peachy.

I know one sub-combine is: Heraldic Keep by combining these in a Heraldic Crest Repair Kit

Crest Keep Tower Plate
Crest Keep Tower Frame
Crest Keep Wall Plate
Crest Keep Wall Frame
Crest Keep Plate
Crest Keep Frame

but the other field combines elude me.

Actually it seems to be Right Upper and Left Upper - thank you SOE for being so inconsistent in naming. Is there something else you need to make the combines work? I tried making the Crest Right Field on the repair kit and it keeps telling me I can't combine those items in that container type!

Bah, nevermind. There are similar sounding names just to confuse us. The last recipe is:

Upper Crest
Crest Left Upper Field Frame
Crest Center Upper Field Frame
Crest Right Upper Field Frame
Crest Left Upper Field Plate
Crest Center Upper Field Plate
Crest Right Upper Field Plate

and the first one is really:

Heraldic Keep
Crest Keep Tower Frame
Crest Keep Wall Frame
Crest Keep Frame
Crest Keep Tower Plate
Crest Keep Wall Plate
Crest Keep Plate

These all come from quests in Oceangreen Hills and Village. There are 2 quest givers at the fort in the NE corner in the hills as well as 3 gnoll quest givers in the SW area. There are at least 3 quest givers in the Village. Most can be done solo.
