In the Beastlord 1.5, according to plan, I hailed sphinx A and then saw the faction boosts. BUT THEN, I was under attack. Knowing I needed good faction with both, I did /ex leaving the game. (As an 85 Heroic character I had enough substance to remain alive for the few seconds it took to clear my character.) Coming back into the game, I did the Return Home command at log-in to get me out of the area. Upon running back, I checked faction with both A and Z, seeing both to be good. I proceeded to do the chats as required for the quest to continue, while talking with A, staying apart from Z as much as possible. The whole event then proceeded just as it is supposed to do.

My theory about this: The whole quest is a challenge of the Beastlord's compassion and loyalty. To remain loyal and compassionate to these allies under stress advances the theme.

I just did this part 71 bst,63 Enc,and a 56 wasn't all that hard but Zazamoukh does first i tried letting my pet do most of the tanking but that wasn't working too well,so with only 9.3k hp with Tena and self buffs i jumped in anyways.i did finish it but clr had to do alot of healing LOL.

Enc had to mem blur both mobs when we first got there because they both started attacking until i was able to hail him and i had to make my pet back off several times cause he had 1 down to 25% life can easily be done with 3 but make sure you have a tank with you unless you have alot of hp.

Yes, I found it at the end of the little canyon off the east side of the NE area.

Heh, I remember when he had group of 3 ogres around 6-9 or something.. ran around here hunting anything possible, then got lost and found canyon that leads to this fellow. Saw big wings, then one of us died. We start to run, then another one dies, I keep running and BOOOM this or someone else nuked me for (cleric nuke mtinks). Good times, no doubt. ^_^

Always when passing thru rathe these days I keel em both usually, just for the heck of it. =P

When i first came upon this guy i was kos, he attacked me before i hailed him. On hailing i got the faction adjusters but he carried on attacking.
Hail him before you get attacked.
In the end the cleric i was with mem wiped, after i went through the text while he was hitting me (just say 'i am the beastlord') he does the text even while aggroing you.
After you lose aggro and go back you faction will be good with him. (as long as you dont kill)
Hope that helps.

For Beastlords questing the Epic 1.5: This is very true. In my case A was not kos but Z was. You also have to be somewhat close upon hail to get the positive faction hit with both. You wont be able to complete the turn ins unless you get the faction.

Another Beastlord epic mob, related to the Z griffin guy... Beasts must speak with this to spawn sumthing they must kill.
# Jul 30 2004 at 5:35 PM Rating: Decent
I was bored and killed big Z and his beetles enough times to get *max* ally with big A. Still the only thing I can get him to say is "I have no need for this item Svann. You may have it back". I've tried using ogre illusion and no help. I guess its true that there is no quest. Unless someone can think of something he might want?
Wrong Mob

After reading all of the posts, I have come to the conculsion that some of you guys are talking about the other named flying beast Zazamoukh. Now if your talking about him he summons and keeps you as a pet. Ank is a whimp compared to Big Z. My same pally that I beat Ank with at 48 was summoned by this guy, He will get some pay back as soon as I get old enough to deliver it personally ( no group for him). Im gonna make him pay!

I there are enough people working on this, this should be solved soon. The ruins near the Zaza Sphinx look a map of Rathe Mounts ands the Innoruk symbols corrisponde to the location on of the sphinxes and beadles there are also small structures that resemble some of the bigger structers in Rathe Mts. When you click on any of them from a distance in says you are too far away to click on that or something. The is lore that there is an entrance to the plane of hate hidden in the Rathe Mts. I would investigate this further but I'm only a lvl 52 mage. Pleeeeeeeeeze some high lvl look into this
I dont know what ur talking about

Im really confused, all u high 40's are saying that it was really hard, and u got it donw to 50% and died... im was a 41 bst, and i was grouped with a 42 wizzy, and a 48 shaman. we sicked pets first, they took out the pet within 30-40 seconds, and i tryed tanking the damage, but it really disliked the sahman, and kept trying to kill him. i used my 100 pt heal on him a couple of times.
The wizard was nuking the whole time, and i got rooted and stunned a couple of times. and it even caused me to get rid of my warder which i had to recast. Not much damage was given by it the whole time, just once, it cast gravity flux on the shaman, but no one else, and i cast lev on him so he didnt take any fall damage.
overall, it took about 3 minutes to kill it.

got a mithril amulet for loot. Had bad faction so why not kill. 51 SK is me and friend with me is 51Necro. My resist disc helped me because fire and poison are 132 and my magic went up to 120. none of his spells landed and my pet and necro pet helped me and took out sphinx pet. mith amulet sells for like 77+ plat, so not bad. dunno what zazz cons to me but Ahnk definitely hates me

Anyone ever try to pull Ankhefenmut and Zazamoukh together? Bet that would be an interesting Battle.

It was late and all my grp buddies had gone and I was left in RM on my own. Sick of HG's for the mo I decided to farm some stuff for my Shaman epic. There are 2 MOBs to kill for loot in RM (Tabien the Goodly and Glaron the Wicked - both lt blue to me at 45) so went looking 4 them - found them and got what I needed. Unfortunately I didn't have a map so was doing it all by Loc and while rushing up a gorge came face to face with this guy. Not sure quite how close but he conned indifferent to me, a barbarian. Backed away quietly!
Leinad's Quest Not a clue
# May 03 2003 at 10:34 PM Rating: Decent
I read a post about "The Two Sphinx From Leinad's Quest" as a possible clue to what these mysterious guys are for. I did a little searching on the internet and here is the page he is talking about:
However, I did a little browsing through the sight and it appears that "Leinad" is a bard (Player Character) in the Guild Divine Light. Whoever originally found this page good work. I was hoping it was the answer to the mystery.
it was wondering

i had just gotten back from getting C3 i was bound at the lizard camp and i started to run towards the little hill with all the HG's and bam i got hit with some DoT. So i whirl around to see a goofy griffon staring at me, next thing i know my screen freezes and im its pet. So i shouted for help cause it wasnt killing me but it was putting a damper on my money making. seing as im 405 in the hole i need money(i love nice buddys). So i got bored with all the lazy lvl60's that wouldnt kill it to i shouted that "im gonna LD cause ur all bums" so i used /exit and took a break to go to the bathroom and when i came back i reloged and no more goofy griffon not even on my track to i dispatched the DoT with a heal and resumed as normal. About 5 mins later a guy told me that while in pet form i was a nasty little bugger cause i was running all around and attacking him. well i guess thats what i get for sacrificing MR for a high wisdom, darn me and my 40 MR and 210 wis. well thats my 2 cp. i hope i provieds help or atleast amusement.

Ran into this guy and its pet with my 51 Necro friend. We had just gotten her J-boots and were on our way to farm HGs. Her pet attacked the mob, so I figured I'd jump in. We got it to half life, her pet died and we were both stunned. The mob did NOT attack us while we were stunned, nor did it attack when we decided to leave and - duh - buff ourselves. It just seemed strange to me.

I was running along looking for stuff to kill while waiting on brother Z, my 52 Iksar Monk ( equipped with fungi tunic, buffed w/ virtue and shammy focus of soul ) when I came across this badass by mistake...he ht me right off the bat for 300, and was hitting me with a life tap for 47 every other hit or so.

He also after I had used mend, and popped a discipline, hit me with stun, and then made me his *****. Thank CT for FD, cause he flat out owned my ***.

My point is, he has got to be higher that 40, that's for damn sure.
