Rogue Epic changes:
- Eldreth will now return after leaving for 1 hour rather than 8. He can no longer be killed by miscreants.
- Founy Jestands and Tani N'Mar will no longer have any parchment on their corpses if killed. They will, however, always have them in their pockets if someone happens to be clever enough to take them.
- Renux Herkanor will no longer carry a Jagged Diamond Dagger.
- General V'ghera will no longer carry a Cazic Quill.
- Karg IceBear will be a bit easier to find and will be carrying the Gigantic Zweihander more often.

8pm Game time

1 - 3 silver.
2 - a Silver Amulet
3 - 1 silver
4 - unsuccessful
5 - unsuccessful
6 - a Stained Parchment Top

Level 49 Rogue with 226/232 Pickpocket skill.

This was no means my first attempt and he killed me once prior. So even if you get an item keep going. I got a Nilitim's Grimoire Page 36 then a Damp Marrow off Tani (no bottom though) so even if you get an item keep going.

Zoned in and could not find him. He spawned at 8am game time. With 280 pick pocket skill I got the note first try.
Killing him

Your faction standing with Miners Guild 628 has been adjusted by -305.
Your faction standing with Circle Of Unseen Hands has been adjusted by 15.
Your faction standing with Butcherblock Bandits has been adjusted by 15.
Your faction standing with Deeppockets has been adjusted by -15.
Your faction standing with Ebon Mask has been adjusted by 45.

A large faction hit indeed. Although if you don't care about your dwarf rogue faction, it's not a bad way to make the dark elf rogues like you.

He's pretty resistant. Even at level 100 I had a hard time landing spells on him.

He won't talk to me

Do you still have to use the dialect for Founy when you're getting the parchment? I'm standing right beside him and hailing him and he won't talk to me.

I've taken off Sneak and Hide to talk to him, but that doesn't seem to help anything and as far as I know, I don't have any other form of invis on.
I've also tried camping out and coming back in, but that did nothing for me.

Okay, I was just being stupid, I guess, lol.
I tried hailing him first, and he doesn't say anything to that, so I tried just starting the dialect and it worked.

Keep trying
# Nov 26 2012 at 11:24 AM Rating: Decent
65 Rogue, 183 PP skill. Took about 40-50 tries after I took everything from him. Lots of "Your attempt at stealing was unsuccessful." but finally got it. Took maybe 15 minutes.

This was the trick on Agnarr just last night. Not that it will work every time he spawn's, but just don't give up because you think you've picked him clean in the first 5 minutes.

At level 75 with 219/270 Pick Pockets skill, on a legitimate Sony server, and well into day 2; I cleared his inventory out and decided to just work my skill and kill time. After dozens of failed attempts due to his inventory being empty, I lifted the parchment top.

This time around, I got it on the first attempt directly after his respawn. So take my previous post with a grain of salt.

I have am a level 66 rogue with pickpocket skill of 233/261 and today i maxed my hide while trying to get my parchment, He only despawned twice during the entire time, and i killed him twice more. Still no parchment. there will be a patch tomorrow morning so i will try again right after. Don't understand why epics have to be so boring. Challenging is nice but why drag it out so long that people get bored and give up?

Using level 40 goblin shroud

I started working on my epic at level 44 as an agnostic DE rogue. Of course, I'm unfriendly to dwarves, so I tried several tricks to remedy my faction while in the goblin shroud to pickpocket Founy (automatic 200 pickpocket skill, since I unfortunately only have a skill of 10 ):).

What did **NOT** work:
-Barbarian illusion before shrouding
Amulet of Necropotence (Skeleton) click after shrouding
Transferring Barbarian mask to shroud (Shrouds can only use ALL/ALL items... so even though it was BRD/ROG, ALL I could not use it)

What **WILL** work:
-Invisibility potions to get to founy - if you go this method just stand a couple feet in front of founy and you will be safe from both the exterminator and the wandering guard. At 200PP you won't aggro Founy often but be careful, at level 40 shroud you only have 1136 HP/750 AC. Stay attentive and don't ever pickpocket while sitting down (or the first time he smacks you in the face you'll get full damage for it and you'll regret it). Do not start pickpocketting until you are 75% hp or more. WARNING: sometimes the exterminator will leave his perch to run up after a rat. He generally does NOT get close enough to you...but if a guard wanders at the same time he will run up to assist and may wander into aggro radius. Keep a finger on the HIDE key at all times.
-ALL/ALL illusion potions:
Possibly Vah Shir
Wood Elf
High Elf
Half Elf
Possibly Froglok (Guktan)
-Enchanter Project Illusion of abovementioned races. NOTE that illusions fade upon zoning, you don't get perma illusion in shroud mode. Drakkin or Froglok (Guktan) may or may not work, have never tested it to see if it has a faction mod.

NOTE: If you chose a deity other than agnostic at character-creation illusions may not be enough to save you. I have always picked agnostic whenever possible but if you follow a dark god such as Innoruuk or Bertoxxulous you may be KoS even in dwarf illusion, or really close to being KoS (so don't go around killing dwarves because you'll get there pretty fast).

*This is the only race I personally verified to work since I had the mask, but 90% sure the others I listed will work as well, because I do know they have racial faction mods (tested in other cities during enc epic). Have never tested Froglok/Vah Shir for faction mod though.

Instead of waiting for his usual once-a-gameday automatic reset, kill him and he respawns much sooner. Unlike his counterpart in Neriak (who repops immediately when killed), this guy seems to respawn about 20 minutes after slain (zonewide respawn timer maybe??) Although his normal automatic reset is 72 minutes, I was killing him about every 35 minutes. Cuts your overall time investment in half if you need to go multiple spawns to turn up one with a parchment.
Stained Parchment Pick
# Jul 13 2009 at 5:03 AM Rating: Decent
200 pickpocket skill is not needed, as I just got parchment drop witk a skill lvl of 148. I think its just a random pick just like Tani. Good Luck to the rest

Very long fight.
# Feb 24 2008 at 2:51 PM Rating: Decent
Killed him today with a small L66 trio...I was tired of waiting on my drop. :P
*Can be single-pulled.
*He has roughly 3,000,000 HPs.
*Max hit looked like 135.
*Perma-hasted (innate hundred hands effect?)
*Incredible resists. Lifetap would hit roughly 15% of the time and Spirit of the Leopard only landed about 75% of the time after Malo.

Upon death he dropped a mere 1 silver and copper, the above faction hits and an additional:
"Your faction standing with Ebon Mask got better."

I Just picked him with a lvl 52 rogue. I stood directly behind him and picked until agro. When he attacked i simply ran to zone. Zoned once, came back, picked a silver amulet, and next pick i got parchment.
Didn't need 200 skill
