a brownie merchant [ Enchanter Spells ]  

Spells: Enchanter

Brownies are a nasty little race who hate just about everyone.

The trick to getting the spells off them if you're an enchanter is to find the camp. Then stand at the maximum range of Benevolence and cast it on the first brownie you can see.

Doing the above should take you from "regards you threateningly" to "regards you dubiously". The merchant still won't sell to you, but you can approach the merchant without being KOS. Walk up to the merchant, and cast Illusion tree. You should now be able to buy and sell from the brownie merchant.

The Thicken Mana line of spells is only partially implemented, about all you can make that we know of are Wu's Fighting Gauntlets: monk-only glowing gloves.

Yep, didn't work today on Agnarr for me - Agnostic Gnome Enchanter. Sounds like it used to work but they changed it so non-racial illusions do not change faction

Pretty sure they changed illusions (wolf form, tree, etc.) to not make you indifferent to quest NPC and merchants.

Racial illusions (i.e., Iksar) still have impact.

If my memory is correct this would have happened some time after Legacy of Ykesha, but not in the last 5 years.

As of this writing, this camp is wholly borked.

You start out threatening.
You cast Benevolence and get to dubious.

No matter what illusion you try, you stay dubious.

The only one I was unable to check was druid wolf form, but every illusion available to a lvl 71 enchanter failed.

Just go to High Hold and get these spells there.
*Insert snazzy catchphrase here*
still cant buy em there

Illusions do work to hide your faction. As of the 8th of Feb, 2007, I tried several different illusions, and came to this conclusion: Monster illusions don't hide your faction, but normal illusions (i.e., Dwarf, gnome, half elf, etc) do.. with the exception of the evil races.

It's true that you can by the new mass line of Thicken in east commons now, but lets say you don't wanna spend 85pp a pop. Well then Krystalle Corsair in High Keep is the lady for you. (That's right the place you buy your pet spells.)She is at Loc -97.11, -228.85, 3.75 if you can not find her go to the bank in High Keep, your looking at the banker I hope, now turn around go left up the steps. Once you are at the top of the steps turn right you should see 4 doors on your left, second one from the end has an Erudite in it, she is your gal.

She sells the following spells:
6 platinum 2 gold 7 silver 9 copper for the Spell: Thicken Mana(level 8).'
10 platinum 4 gold 6 silver 5 copper for the Spell: Crystallize Mana(level 20).'
15 platinum 1 gold 7 silver 4 copper for the Spell:Clarify Mana(level 29).'
20 platinum 4 gold 6 copper for the Spell: Distill Mana(level 39).'
25 platinum 6 gold 3 silver 9 copper for the Spell: Purify Mana(level 49).'
These are the prices a Human Sk got with 85charisma she is prolly on BetaN but don't quote me on that.

On a side note I took my brothers level 16 ench to lfay to check out the brownies, he conned threat to them, I cast his level 8 Alliance spell which took him to dubious. Now here is what I noticed...The mercheants are now on the same faction as the normal brownies. I killed brownies awhile back, and when I was killing them there was two factions back then. The guards and normal brownies all conned ready to attack but the mercheants conned dubious to me. And when killed mercheants gave negative hits to (Faction)Browny Mercheants. Wheras the normal brownies gave bad faction hits to "Brownies". So I went back to lfay, and I killed the guards and the mercheants. All con kos to me now and they all give bad faction to "Brownies".

Just wanted to say that he's right, you can buy these spells from the lady in HK as he said. Also, is there any way to rais brownie faction? If not, I'm going to kill as many as I can for this inconvienence. Grrr

Oh, wonderful. Just wonderful. Somebody explain to me how we buy our spells here now that illusions don't hide faction.. don't even want to know how this affects the coin quest for chanters. Smiley: mad

I just tried ot get my 29 mana spell.. no dice. They only con dubious but they saw thru minor illusion,aura didnt help and benevolence didn't make a dent in their attitude. I'm so dang mad I could spit nails. What's the point of having illusions under these conditions? Smiley: banghead

Try using illusion: Sprit Wolf. It acts the same as the druid spells.
Buying from Brownies
# Jul 21 2000 at 3:27 PM Rating: Decent
You can also illusion yourself as an earth elemental and just walk right in. For some reason they don't mind us in that form. I used this to buy both of my mana spells.
Enchanter can buy from them easy

They cast benevolence on one of the gaurds out front and cast tree form or minor illusion and get it.
Thicken Mana and Crystalize Mana

I had an Enchanter get them for me. They casted Invisibility on themself and ran into the village, up to the merchant. Then casted minor illusion spell on themself to buy the spells. After that they casted invisibility on themself to run back out.

I'm also a Druid serving Karana, but am human. They were aggro to me, but apparently I hit it lucky and managed to get close to them without them agro'ing me. Was going to try and get the mana spell for an Enchanter friend, but I'll wait til I get wolfform.
Some like them
# Apr 26 2000 at 4:24 PM Rating: Decent
my half elf druid serving karana was greeted warmly by these guys, so evidently some people can go there, or maybe it was something i killed/quested

but i found 2 merchants, one solf thicken crystalize and light heal, gate, and SOW potions, and the other sold combine and well balanced weapons, quite a nice stock if you ask me
# Apr 06 2000 at 11:06 AM Rating: Default
is there any way an enchanter can get to the merchants with out the aid of a druid? maybe some nefty illusion trick or some?

All races are KOS to brownies, but if your a druid you get to buy from these merchants in wolf-form, anyone want to tell me what kind of stuff they sell? or is it just the usual? maybe even some quest in that town, who knows?
#Anonymous, Posted: Mar 01 2000 at 11:00 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Can someone give me an idea of a damage range for how hard they hit.
They Stock:
