HE IS FOR A QUEST!!!!!!!!! Its just unknown.

Shintar IS for a quest. Ask him (what mission), (who is Moojak), (who is Binnlin), (what prisoner), or (what heretics).

There is some kind of quest he is involved in that he describes to you. He talks of how he and two friends Moojak and Binnlin were tracking an 'escaped prisoner' thru the forest, but he got away in a boat. Shintar's two friends followed in pursuit, and he stayed behind to wait for their report.

He says 'the prisoner has left these lands' when you ask where it is... So i am guessing he is in Kerra Ridge/Isle (checked there), or somewhere else on Odus?

I havent ever heard of Binnlin or Moojak as NPC's but my guild and I are keeping our eyes open. This is NOT a new quest, as I do remember Shintar making his patrol route when i was a young newbie to Eq, back in 1999. I remember thinking 'who is this guy?' where is he going? etc...

I have tracked his movements, and he stands near the large kobold camp behind a log near a small tree with his pet (which is invis most of the time). Then after a minute or two he walks directly towards the river and stands there another minute, afterwhich he says "where are they, i can't wait around forever!", and walks back to his log.

He is a Mage, who casts a water pet (that I have seen), which goes invis or 'fades away' as soon as it appears. He is on friendly Erudin mage guild faction, I think...

I have already asked around and nobody knows what the heck i am talking about, since i came across this info simply by asking him hundreds (no joke) of random questions, and he finally responded to (what mission?).

If you find out anything else, LET ME KNOW!

I have heard that it might be Elial Brook, or an maybe its Nomala on Kerra Isle? (the escaped catman from qeynos), maybe they are hunting him?) Ill try giving Nomala's key to him, instead of the qeynos warrior guild guy
He Attacked Me!

If he's a heretic, why'd he attack my 5th level Erudite necro? Messed up my faction, I've been trying to kill enough Kobolds to get Erudin NPCs to trade with me.

I just looted his bones today.
they are not lore but they are stackable. Weird isn't it?

6 Necro on Toluxe

he was yellow to me at 7

I believe the bones are for the Heretic Battle Quest. You give the remains to the man in the Magician Guild in Erudin.

This guy drops lore bones. When I killed him I lost faction with Gatecallers, and other Erudin factions, gain some with the Heritics. Are the bones part of a quest?

they look the same but they dont stack so they must be different( ??????????????)

I've been looking for information on this for a while. As far as I know, no one knows what those bones are for.

*shrug* well we all know that there already is a quest for Mages where you kill a necro and get his bones (Elial Brook), so thiziz prolly a necro quest

Actually, I've looked at these bones, and they're entirely identical to the ones that the Heretics (including Elial Brook) are supposed to drop. Strange, I agree, but I expect you can turn them in to the person who takes the Heretic bones.
RE: Bones (note: Not Heretic Killing Quest!)

If this is part of a quest (it must be, but it's a mystery as to what it actually is), it is definitely not the Heretic bones quest. This is why:

1)Killing him RAISES faction with the Heretics and lowers the various Erudin factions.
2)He does not look upon us Heretics kindly, and often attacks us.

I do not know of any evidence to the contrary. If they are identical to the Heretic bones (I don't kill Heretics because I am one), they shouldn't be. So I would not turn in these bones in Erudin, because at best they you'd get a "I don't know what to do with this but thanks" message, at worst they might attack you.

I plan to do a little research into this, so I will post when I find something. But for any ambitious non-Heretics, your best bet is to leave Shintar alone and stick to the heretics and elial brook.

PS, for you non-Heretics who like killing skellies, do not kill any skeletons around Paineel called Illinar's pet or something like that. You will lower your own faction and raise it with us. In general, con people before you attack, and if they are indifferent or better named NPCs you might want to leave them alone if you don't know of any quests requiring their death.
