You say, 'Hail, Mojax Hikspin'

Mojax Hikspin says 'Hi. How are you? The fish are biting pretty good. That is what Skipynn tells me. I sure wish I had a different job. If I did, I could fish all day long.'

You say, 'What is your job ?'

Mojax Hikspin says 'I am a messenger for [Antonius Bayle], ruler of the great city of [Qeynos].'

You say, 'Who is Antonius Bayle ?'

Mojax Hikspin says 'How can it be that you do not know of Antonius Bayle? Was it not he who named this great continent of Antonica? Is it not he who rules over the most powerful city on Norrath? Surely you jest!'

You say, 'Where is Qeynos ?'

(at this point, Mojax gets up and does a Gasp! animation)

Mojax Hikspin says 'Huh?! Have you been living in a cave? The great city of Qeynos is the mightiest nation in Antonica! You'd best journey toward the west and visit the city whose influence stretches beyond the horizons.'

Went stumbling along doing three quests from the Freeport Innoruuk church underground in east freeport.

I killed this guy in one backstab. He had no note. (required for one of the three quests from the church above)

Work up faction with clearing the orc camp on the other side of the lake, then when he's amiable hand him a Bottle of Milk (6 copper at 80 cha). He will say something like "Boy, I sure was thirsty. The not e is beside by bed. Go get it."

This is one of the best ways to up faction with the Knights of Truth, Priests of Marr, and Steel Warriors. Just hand him 4 unstacked Bottles of Milk, over and over and over.

Also, if you wait long enough, someone will come by and say something like "I stole your note haha i'm gonna give it to my superior!"
More milk for a troll SK

OK, this guy can get you there, but it takes a @#$% load of milk if you've ever killed any of the folks from the factions in question.

As a 48 troll SK, I've hunted East Freeport pally by the areana and Qeynos guards in the karanas to do the darkforge armor quest and god knows how many misc NPCs in the Qeynos Hills area.

As such, it took a horrendous amount of work to get faction up.

First off, this punk was dubious to me even when I was in wolf form and the hide and give trick won't work because some genius wanted to make people's lives difficult and give this quest a min faction of amiable - @#$%!!!!!!!!

So I slaughter orcs and the two toll booth guards for a few hours - I'm finally up to amiable in wolf form atleast - start turning in milk.

You need to hail this guy every other turn in or he gets up and starts wandering around and he will be killed by the local mobs. You can't hand them in stacked anymore either - you can give him 4 single milks at once though.

After 30 stacks I was finally amiable to him personally, although still KOS to steel warriors and dubious to freeport pallys.

Drop another 60 stacks on him and I'm now kindly to the pallys and dubious to steel warriors - thank god, I can start dealing with the steal warriors.

Nope - if you goto Qeynos and try to deal with the SW while KOS to the other factions, then the SOBs will attack you if anyone aggros you while you are dubious to them - one CR later I'm heading back to the Commons.

Final score was turning in a total of 70 more milk, 40+ orc belts and 15 damaged militia helmets - this got me to warmly with freeport pallys, preist of marr and kindly with steel warriors (good enough that if you're fast, no one should aggro you and none of the steel warriors will help kick your bottom.

Two interesting notes on faction -

1) Might be a bug due to all the new crap, but I found that I was getting the maxed faction message from those groups even though I was only warmly instead of ally.

2) If you've got a partner or a pet and you're patient, you can kill the guy who comes to steal the note when you give Mojax his milk. What I did for about 80 turn ins was to park my pet behind Mojax and then sit down and give him the milk. This would cause the theif to aggro and swing at me and then my pet would slice and dice him. I tried doing this myself, but after accidentally targeting and killing Mojax for the fourth time, I said "@#$% it" and let the pet do the work.

Not all factions can reach max ally with all other factions. Sometimes if you are of an opposing faction you max out at a lower level and cannot raise it anymore. You might not be KOS anymore, and you may be able to get some quests from NPC's on that faction and deal with merchants who may have that faction as part of their factions, you won't be able to get any quest that requires a higher faction than your max.

And yeah, I know I'm replying to a very old message, I'm posting this info here for anyone who might wander in and be wondering how factions work.
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

i went from aprehinsive to amiable in about 600- 700 or so milks, did it again and now i max with steel warriors, i hate FP guards and was already bottomed out with them, and maxed with nights of truth. if you want to be good on both sides, turn in gobbie ears in HHK, no bad faction hits, if your kos there kill a but ton of orcs in HH to get into HHK. have fun, and remember it's just a game <isn't it?>

28 stacks of milk (560) took my iksar monk from dubious to indifferently (note: you need amiable or better to do this quest - but with wolf form, my monk was kindly at the start and warmly at the end). At the end of 42 stacks (840) my iksar monk is now amiable to him. Not a bad piece of work for only a few plat.

Easy Way..
# Dec 28 2001 at 6:54 AM Rating: Default
Alright I'll give out the secret very easy way i made my iksar loved by the's sort've cheating though. Not that tapping is really any different. Ok all i did was bring my iksar to the rogues area of the sewers then I camped. Then I made a freeport newbie and started the quests "message to Rebby", "message to Janam", and "message to Frikniler" (all these are found in the rogues area of the underground). After each of these character gives me the items to return back to Harkin, t'gaza, and Glenn Frikniller I just drop them in an area near where my iksar had camped out(and out of the way of NPC's who might pick it up) then I camp and bring my iksar back in pick up the items and turn them in for three nice faction hits. I used an iksar monk for this and while everyone else was at first KOS to me the rogues werent for some reason. Can't say whether the same is true for any other class though. Still have to kill Orcs for the Ashenhand faction to use the monk guild in any case and I have no idea how to make an iksar able to bank anywhere other than cabalis and highpass hold.
RE: Easy Way..

Doh I meant to put this somewhere else obviously lol. Ah well maybe one of you found that post interesting
Here's how to do it
# Dec 01 2001 at 12:11 PM Rating: Default
Alright, here's the deal. You want to be able to do the milk quest from this guy? Then he has to be above indifferent to you. Awwww boohoo. I can't do anything now, so I might as well quit. Wrong. If you want faction for Hero Bracer quest or any of the factions he gives for any reason, there is a way:

1. Head to east commonlands and bring money and many empty backpacks with you (I brought 6 BP's and 250pp, but I didn't use it all). Auction that you are buying Death Fist Slashed belts (DF belts). I am sure you will immediately get a monsoon of tells because the orc camps are always camped by lowbies looking for exp and money, but if you don't... do not worry! Keep trying. Also check to see if the orc camps are open. If they are, great! Camp the orc camp for DF belts while auctioning for 'em. If the camp is taken, ask the group there if anyone has any DF belts and that you are willing to pay for them (Lots of lowbies are too stupid to understand auctions or don't know how to respond to them or whatever, no offense to you lowbies out there =P ). Continue on with this until you fill the backpacks (took me a while, but it's faster than getting gnoll teeth). Then proceed to west freeport and head to the arena. Instead of going into the arena itself, keep going past it and you will encounter a small building. Go in there, up the stairs, and you will see a man by the name of Cain (only NPC in the room). Hand him two DF belts at a time and you will receive +Steel Warriors and +some other stuff, and -Corrupt Qeynos Guards and freeport militia and one other thing. I did this quest 24 times (48 DF belts), and when I was done I was amiable to the Steel Warriors people, and still dubious to the FP guards (faction hadn't changed even though I'd been taking hits with them!)! If you are still not amiable to the Steel Warriors, go back and get more belts! If you aren't amiable to SW's and ARE now KoS to the guards, I would suggest doing step 3 before doing anything else. Note: if you think your faction with FP guards will be KoS after this, you can do part 3. (look below) first.

2. Next step, go buy MANY STACKS OF MILK and bring them to West Commonlands. Hand them in four (four stacks of one milk) at a time to Mojax Hikspin who is sitting behind the Inn, near the lake (if you are amiable to Steel Warriors you'll be amiable to Mojax, enabling you to hand in milks and get faction and exp). Do this until Mojax Kindly Considers you. Now you should have the faction to do the Hero Bracer Quest, or any other quest involving those factions that were raised.

3. THIS PART IS OPTIONAL! This step is only to raise faction with the factions lost in the previous two steps (like FP guards, you want to be able to walk into FP, don't you?!). This part can also be done before, during, or after the previous two steps, but I would reccomend before or after. Head to High Pass Hold (not the city) and kill orc there and loot many, many orc scalps. When you feel you have enough (remember, has to be A LOT!), head to Captain Ashlan who is just past the orc camp a little bit. NOTE: You have to be at least high dubious (some say indifferent, try them both out) with him to be able to get faction from the scalps, and killing the orcs will raise faction with him). You can hand in up to four stacks of four scalps (16 scalps) at a time (what a time saver!). Do this until you are high faction with him, and you should be the same for the FP guards. If not, go back and do the quest more!

There you are. Hope this helps! Have fun with your new bracer or whatever you were doing with the faction!
Hint: you don't go below dubious unless you have a murder hi

" did this quest 24 times (48 DF belts), and when I was done I was amiable to the Steel Warriors people, and still dubious to the FP guards (faction hadn't changed even though I'd been taking hits with them!)!"

You won't hit threaten if initially dubious without a murder hit. However, you can get MAX glower dubious from doing a quest a lot then the SLIGHTEST hit will make you threaten.

My wood elf druid did the rat ear quest with rephas back when it gave you a 3 plat sell to npc spell ever 20 or so ears (verant nerfed it after this.. a lot of people on the trib server around level 9 suddenly had 100's of plat.. ) We found out you could buy unlimited rat ears from the erud lady in EC = Newbie convoy to qey hills!!!

My wood elf started glower dubious to militia and after a billion ears turned in (lowers militia) was was still dubious. Then I made the mistake of killing one person who lowers militia, boom threaten. With just the one kill it was not hard to get to dubious again but after ONE SINGLE KILL from then on you CAN go back to kos from quests.

# Dec 01 2001 at 3:38 PM Rating: Decent
I have two things to add, both dealing with part 2. You can hand in one stack of four milks and get the same four faction and exp bonuses. This is much faster than doing four stacks of one milk. Another thing is, after a minute and a half of handing in milks, Mojax will stand up and begin to walk to the stone marker and drops off a note, then walks back to where he was before and despawns for a few minutes. In order to keep him from moving, after each time I handed in the four milks, I hailed him. This worked like a charm and he never moved once.

A bettear way to raise faction is by turning in orc scalps in hph. this way u go up with the gaurds there, in fp, and in quenyos. the df belt quest only ups fp gaurds and it pulls down the knights of truth(the gaurds in north fp which means the bank)

Ok, kid. Here's what you need to do. Get yer tail back to the Field of Bones and solo your way up to _at least_ level 20. Then go back and offer to pull for the Orc camps in East Commons. Join up with a lower level group, and let them all get the kills while all you do is toss a throwing star at the orcs to get 'em to aggro.

Don't actually _join_ the group unless the whole load of them are blue or better to you conning. Do this for 'em so you can get the belts.

You can find details on what to do with the belts at:

MAKE SURE you turn in the belts one at a time.

(By the way folks, feel free to correct me at any point here. I'm still relatively new to the whole mess of playin' a 'Evil' race...

RE: pLEASE REad this!!
# Nov 08 2001 at 7:04 PM Rating: Good
Here is the problem with your solution. It has holes in it. You can collect df belts, but CANNOT turn them in if you are kos. Even with wolf form, you may still be KOS. You may have to be a certain faction to even get the guards to accept the belts.
RE: pLEASE REad this!!
# Feb 11 2003 at 8:57 PM Rating: Default
it works, i've tried it with ALL iksar classes. All of them worked and now even an iksar necro of mine is non-KoS to Fp thanks to wolf form and DF belts.

# Aug 12 2000 at 6:42 PM Rating: Decent
You can probably fix your faction by killing this guy, but if you are charisma is only 50, it may take in the neighborhood of 1000 kills to get non-KOS. As an Iksar, I've spent about 40 hours doing nothing but faction repairs in places. It takes forever, and sometimes you have to purposely let enemies kill you to keep gaining faction.

Helping Vlex Out...assuming he reads thi
# Jul 14 2000 at 2:45 PM Rating: Decent
Well, this will take a LOT of work in the faction area, but I have a lengthy but workable solution for you. First, go kill orcs in high pass/high hold (whichever one is not the city, I always get them mixed up) and turn in the orc scalps to the Militia guy there. You get positive FreeportMilitia, CoalitionofTradesfolk3, CorruptQeynosGuards and CorruptFreeportGuards faction, with NO faction hits. I suggest that you turn in so many that you get to "warmly" with the militia and can't get any higher.

Next, we get to destroy all that.

Go to East Commonlands and slaughter orcs. Get yourself a few dozen (or hundred, whatever it takes) orc belts, and turn them in to Cain Darkmoore in the Steel Warriors guild in West Freeport. Turning them in gets you positive SteelWarriors, KnightsofTruth, and cleric (forget their faction name) faction, but you lose militia faction for doing so. Keep a close eye on how much your militia faction goes down, and keep turning the belts in until you're apprehensive or dubious once more to the militia.

If you aren't high enough with the Steel Warriors by then, guess what? Go back to HH/HP and slaughter more orcs! Work that Militia faction back up! (As a paladin you'll need it anyway if you ever plan on getting the Soulfire and walking through the main gates of freeport ever again...)

Repeat these steps until your faction is where you'd like it to be with everyone. It might take a long time, but I know of Paladins who did this enough that they were "warmly" to the militia, killed several guards and Sir Lucan to get the Soulfire components and were still NOT KOS to the militia!How fun is that?

Actually what you do is pull the fake Slansin up next to the other NPC and Root him. Log off.

Log back on, and have a hot key set up for the NPC that gives the potion. Hit that button, turn to fake Slansin, give potion.

5 seconds.

Repeat for a LONG time.

I am a high elf pal on Erossis.
Im working on my Hero bracer, just got the Shackle last week.
I am indiffrent to the Steel wars.

Everytime I turn in milk to this guy,
I get no faction, and he tells me Im not rdy or somthing,

I became indiffrent by turning in gnoll fangs, that took alot or fangs, so I want to finish off the rest of my faction with milk.
What can I do to raise my faction with Steel wars, what quest,
I have killed Dorn, dark elf in North ro, alot, hasnt raised it much.

Is there anything I can kill, somthing I can do.
I thought about turning in Death fist belts. but i dont want to be KOs in FP
anyone, please, help me out

quest here!

If you give the guy a bottle of milk a guy will walk past.... this is the guy who stole the message that you were supposed to get from Mojax. He's extremely fast so be sure to kill him before he runs. He has a note on him that you are supposed to take to the priestess who is on the top floor of the Hall of Truth. You get a lousy item from her and the same faction changes as when you give Mojax his milk

Giving this guy milk is great for getting faction for Hero Bracer... but after doing it about 400 or so times (I used 5 full backpacks), you will be VERY KOS to the FP Militia, so be warned...
P.S.: You need good faction, at least high amiable.
