Askr the Lost

In Torden, the Bastion of Thunder:

  • This mob spawns at +187, +236, -1626 near the zone in.

Askr the Lost shouts, 'Rainkeeper!'

Karana stirs from his place in the shallow pool and rises up. He appears to grow several feet as he stands to his full height. He turns to Askr and smiles weakly. 'Hello, Askr. How long have I been asleep?

Askr the Lost says, 'Many months Rainkeeper, the giants have destroyed the towers of the Bastion while you have slept. I have failed you, your trust in me has been misplaced. Much of the plane outside lies in ruins from the uncontrolled rage of the storm that my weakness allowed to happen.'

Karana nods solemnly. 'The fault is not yours Askr. It has been a troubled journey for me, but I have found the clairvoyance that was hidden from me. The past, present, and future are aligned in my mind once more. The power of mortals is growing, and the pantheon will not be able to stop it. Knowledge is the key to true power, and the rifts between the plane of Knowledge and the mortal realms that have been opened by the Fallen have put things in motion that cannot be stopped.

Askr the Lost says, 'The Fallen?'

Was extremely bored tonight so I decided to give it a go. Everything lands on this guy. Slow, sinia, Breath of Wunshi, Breath of Ultor, Pox of Bertox, Bane, Curse of Sisslak, Blood of Yoppa. He hits for 500 at best and triples from what I could tell. Took me about 10 minutes to kill him selfbuffed.

Not a good idea to kill him since the faction hits could really mess you up as far as planar progression. Besides, he is a quest NPC, not meant to be killed.

Best is to get everything first. The head, beard, bone, sash and the 2 medalions.

Then follow the steps as mentioned, but dont loose any time zoning after each flag, dont need to.

Destroyed Askr's Bag?

I keep 8 bags on my char, but i turned in the head to get the bag from Askr. I just wanted to see the bag, that and this was a while ago shortly after PoP came out. So I destroyed the bag. Tonight I went back to Askr with all my pieces for BOT. I handed him the head and he wouldn't take it. I thought back to the bag I destroyed and began screaming at my computer. After about 5 mins of freaking out i finally said, "It was me" then i got to continue his story twice and got my bag back.

So if you destroyed the bag you got from him, don't freak out if you try to hand him the giant head again.

Good luck and I hope this helps someone

Thanks for that advice - I didn't destroy the bag (that I know of), yet for some reason don't have it. Perhaps I logged with it in my cursor still or something? Anyway, with your advice, I will continue my quest.

the reason the person says zone or camp i believe is that PoS has been crashing a lot lately and i can count at least 10 people including my self that have lost items due to rollback. it also seems to help if you cant seem to get the dialog right.

"Askr looks over the remnants of the storm giants in his hands then looks up at you with a glimmer of hope in his eyes. 'Then it's true! You have the means to push back the scourge of giants. . . you must go forth to the Bastion of Thunder and finish there what you have started here. It is imperative that you clear the forces of giants from the Bastion so that order can be restored to the thunderous reaches beyond.'

You have received a character flag!

You gain experience!!

"Askr the Lost says 'Truly, I am amazed that someone of your caliber was able to do what I could not. I have been stuck in these desolate caves for so long, I had almost lost hope that I would ever find a way to get rid of those accursed giants. But you. . . you have been able to best at least one of them. It is reasonable to suggest that if you are able to dispatch one, you may be able to dispatch others. I need to know for sure if you are as capable an individual as it appears you are. This is very important, so are you paying attention?'"

At minimum, you need to have at least one giant head before talking to this guy. This is what needs to happen.

You say, 'Hail, Askr the Lost'

Askr looks up at you and when he does, you take note of the scraggly beard on his weather-worn face; the scent of ale permeates your senses and pushes you to look away slightly. In an apparent drunken stupor, Askr begins to speak with surprising clarity. 'Here to wash the windows and clean the flooring, are you? No? Well, you can't be much help then. And the likes of you obviously wouldn't be able to get rid of the massive problem we're having. Bah, says I. You can help me no more than any of these other vagrants. Leave me alone to my ale and my misery.'

You say, 'what massive problem'

Askr points drunkenly towards the exit of the cave. 'Have you not seen the foul denizens of destruction outside? Hrmph! Going everywhere they please, pillaging, plundering. . . I'm lucky to have survived this long. Bah, it doesn't matter, there's nothing that anyone can do to stop them, and that is why I'm still stuck here with my *hic* potions.'

TURN IN HEAD NOW (heads drop at all 3 giant camps)

The drunken stupor that Askr had been in earlier appears to vanish in an instant; a glimmer of hope now flashes in the depths of his eyes. 'This is the head of a giant. . . a storm giant from outside the caves.' Askr ponders what this revelation could mean. He mutters to himself, 'If it is possible that someone has indeed bested a giant here in the planes, then perhaps it is possible. . .' He looks back at you very sternly and asks, 'Tell me now and be truthful, was it you who severed the head of this giant from his body?'

You say, 'it was me'

Askr the Lost says 'Truly, I am amazed that someone of your caliber was able to do what I could not. I have been stuck in these desolate caves for so long, I had almost lost hope that I would ever find a way to get rid of those accursed giants. But you. . . you have been able to best at least one of them. It is reasonable to suggest that if you are able to dispatch one, you may be able to dispatch others. I need to know for sure if you are as capable an individual as it appears you are. This is very important, so are you paying attention?'

ZONE OR CAMP OUT

You say, 'Hail, Askr the Lost'

Askr the Lost says 'I was afraid you would not return to finish the noble story you had started! But now I see my worries were ill placed. You have proven yourself a worthy adversary to even the mightiest of foes, but your journey does not end here! Seek me out that which I require and let your story continue on its way to greatness!'

You say, 'say what do you seek'

Askr the Lost says 'This place was once beautiful and serene, with the great Karana's showers falling day and night soothing the lands and the creatures that inhabit it. Alas, there was an invasion of a superior force -- the storm giants which you have encountered. They laid waste to the lands, burned down trees, and have caused so much havoc I don't even know what is to become of it. Originally, they came as one group and crossed the breadth of the land pillaging and plundering all that they could find. Over time, though, they grew apart and distinct factions grew around Mount Grenidor.' [continue]

You say, 'continue'

Askr the Lost says 'To the south of Grenidor lay Srerendi, Shores of the Lost and the Srerendi storm giants. Born of the ocean and the cool air, they lay claim to the shores and the plains inland as their own. To the west of Grenidor lay Krendic, Sands of Chaos and the Krendic storm giants. They have skin that is thick as dirt and blend in well with their surroundings. To the north of the great mount lay Kelek`Vor, the Forest of Tears and the Kelek`Vor storm giants. They are born of the wood and take great pleasure in seeing it used to their own purposes.' [continue]

You say, 'continue'

Askr the Lost says 'I must know if you are truly capable of defeating the storm giants that abound here. To do this, you must slay one of each of the three factions and return to me something specific to each tribe: from the Srerendi storm giants, return their shorn beard; from the Krendic storm giants, a piece of their rocky carcass; from the Kelek`Vor storm giants, the crest from their warrior garments. These three items will ensure that you indeed do have the ability to defeat the foul denizens that have seized control of these lands. And if you do indeed have the ability, there may be more in store for you very shortly.'



COMBINE BONE BEARD AND SASH in bag given.(Look in this area for these itmes -- Beard=Ocean, Bone=Desert, Sash=Forest)

Askr looks over the remnants of the storm giants in his hands then looks up at you with a glimmer of hope in his eyes. 'Then it's true! You have the means to push back the scourge of giants. . . you must go forth to the Bastion of Thunder and finish there what you have started here. It is imperative that you clear the forces of giants from the Bastion so that order can be restored to the thunderous reaches beyond.'

You have received a character flag!

You gain experience!!


ZONE OR CAMP

You say, 'Hail, Askr the Lost'

Askr the Lost says 'A hearty welcome back to you, friend. You have the means to push back the scourge of giants. . . you must go forth to the Bastion of Thunder and finish there what you have started here. It is imperative that you clear the forces of giants from the Bastion so that order can be restored to the thunderous reaches beyond.'


You say, 'what is the bastion of thunder'

Askr the Lost says 'To be honest, I cannot say that it is entirely possible, what with the ferocity of the giants and their reluctance to leave the lands they now inhabit. From what I do know, each of the Leaders of each tribe has one piece to allow entrance into the Bastion of Thunder. When two of these pieces are combined, they form an esoteric medallion that allows instant passage to the thunderous plains beyond. If you can find and seal two pieces of the medallion in this bag, I will be able to forge them into the medallion that will help you on your journey.'

Put 2 different medallions in the bag and combine. Give combined box back to him.

You have fashioned the items together to create something new!

The mystical medallion given to you by Askr settles around your neck and then disappears into nothingness. There is no call for alarm, for the medallion is now a part of your soul.


Askr the Lost says 'You have retrieved the pieces! You are well on your way to pushing forth on your quest to return balance to the plains of thunder. The most difficult part lies before you. . . deep in the heart of Mount Grenidor, there is a tempest that rages on eternally. It is there that you must present your medallion to the skies above to be transported to the citadel of thunderous might. Take the medallion and go forth, then deliver these storm giants to their creator!'

You have received a character flag!

You gain party experience!!

An aura of soft light gleams around you as the shrine reacts to your Talisman of Thunderous Foyer and sends you forth into the mighty Bastion of Thunder.

You have received a character flag!

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...

You have entered Bastion of Thunder.

The initial zone in must be done from inside of PoS in the tornado room, but afterwards you can zone to BoT by way of PoT.

Tornado room is a set of rocks on forest wall (in ocean sector) near underwater tunnel.
