Oracle of K`Arnon  

Quest NPC

Uploaded April 26th, 2020 by Drewinette

This fellow is the source of those hideous looking baby blue robes that so many casters insist on wearing for the stats on it. He is guarded by the Guardian, a level 40 paladin. While he is not particularily difficult, he spawns very very slowly (at about 6 hour intervals).

He is also the bearer of the (unfinished) Quest for the Tome of Ages.

  • This mob spawns at -20, -6731, -200 up a hill on the southeast island.

You say, 'Hail, Oracle of K`Arnon'

Oracle of K`Arnon says 'Greetings, _____, I am the Oracle of K'Arnon. Do you quest for [knowledge] yourself, or do you offer that which I [seek]?

You say, 'What knowledge?'

Oracle of K`Arnon says 'I have lived long and have insight into many matters, yet I despise charity. To learn from me, you must first bring me that which I [seek].

You say, 'What do you seek?'

Oracle of K`Arnon says 'I seek knowledge, which is superior to all things. And no knowledge is greater than that which is contained within the [Tome of Ages].

Wizzies can easily kill this guy. Root his guardian, cast atol's spectral shackles on the oracle(the range of the spell gets the guardian as well), lead him away, hit him with ice comet twice, loot the robe and gate out. I smack him when friends need a twink robe for a new caster.

Hey, could a 45 chanter solo this guy? Would I just make one a pet to kill the other, then finish off the charmed one? Any help would be appreciated.

I think a ranger, druid or anyone who could lull the guardian could solo this guy. Just pull him out of the guardians agro distance then woop the Oracle. As a 44 druid I was able to solo him well, just make sure your MR is up to snuff.
#Anonymous, Posted: Nov 14 2001 at 11:01 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) What class is he? And can a 52 Ranger solo him? does his pally friend jump in too?
not just an ugly robe

this robe is also part of the rogue ragebringer quest if you fail to get all the pieces you need. you turn this robe, robe of the kedge, robe of the ishva and shiny metalic robe in to vilnius the small in WK to get the Cazic Quill if it doesn't drop off the general in kith woods.

<shakes her head> To Lunalia.. I am also on Druzzil Ro, and being close friends with a lot of high level rogues.. they are MORE than willing to pay 1-2k for these robes rather than bother to go to OOT and wait for the spawn. They need them for their epics. Normally, though, yes, 300 - 450pp. And by the way. For sale posts should go in the "For sale" section. ^_^

When the Tome of Ages quest is solved (and it will be, one of these days) all of you pure casters who screwed up your oracle faction are going to cry. =) To raise DarkBargainer faction, do the "Red Wine" quest in Neriak. 10 stacks of red wine got a high elf agnostic enchantress up to max ally with the dark bargainers, and 37 stacks got her to dubious /without/ illusion to the inner guards.. warmly with illusion. To raise Oracle faction, it's kind of a risky endeavour, but possible, and very tedious. You need at least indifferent faction with DarkBargainers. Go give the guy, Lokar To'biath, who gives the red wine quest 7pp. You get a note. Then kill him, or have someone else kill him. His head is no longer no-drop, it seems. Go to the "Blind Fish". It's a bar near the bank in Neriak. Go talk to the lady near the windows that look into the water.. she'll be behind the bar, near the brewing barrel. Give her the note he gave you. Then give her his head plus the note she gave back. Take the book to the Oracle.. and bring along an enchanter or L 39+ druid friend. It should work, there have been mixed reports to me of this working and not working. Personally, it worked for me, and I dragged a 60 enchanter with me. If enchanter, charm it, turn in the book. You should recieve a newbie-type +cha torch (AC 7, cha +5, all / all), and the oracle's faction goes up, and the other oracle's faction goes down. Did this three times to clear my bard of being dubious to the oracle. I haven't tried wolf form, but from experience getting a dark elf mage un-kos to the TheKeepersoftheArt in Felwithe, wolf form works like a charm.

Jump of the boat coming from FP and swim to the island you see that has a small dock. Then get on the doc and run straight out from it and you will get to another island, if you have run straight from the dock, you should bump into this guy and his honcho

Ok this guy con threatening to me coz I've killed him once. But part of epic quest for Fiery Avenger needs me to hand in the Book Of Scale to him. So my question is can I hand him the book with a 'threatening' con or can I invis myself and then hand it to him.

Sorry for posting here but I can't post at the Fiery Avenger quest forum...

Those that have done the quest and was in the same situation as I am, please help if you can.

Any help is most appreciated!

NO,you can't not hand in items to NPC while invis, you can only hand stuff to PC's while invis. And if you do hand it in while threatingly he will prb reget it, best bet is to raise faction, or try it with a Wolf Form (Wolf Form rasies fac on Antiona, not Velious or Kunark).
Where is he located?

#Anonymous, Posted: May 26 2001 at 6:41 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) These prices are insane! i paid 150pp for this robe in EC on Druzzil Ro server. i agree i got a damn good deal, but usual price on Druzzil Ro in EC is between 300 and 450pp, anyone who is trying to sell this robe higher then 450pp will be laughed at by everyone in the zone.
#Anonymous, Posted: Aug 10 2001 at 10:36 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) HAHAAHAHAHAHAAA!!!! You actually think 400pp is a sweat? i admit i AM a twink, but ive gotten better money on my level 9!

I just got this robe last night on Mithaniel Marr. I'm a lvl 26 enchanter, but I had a friend who's a lvl 55 mage take him out. He took out the guardian pretty easy but the oracles DD brought him to near death. He said that the guardian conned blue and he got exp from him but not from the oracle so he didn't mind killing them a few more times. He let me loot all the robes which were dropped everytime by the way. If you're like me and you want an oracle robe, go to Ocean of Tears, get off the Sister Isle stop and go straight ahead from the docks and he and/or the guardian will be there on the edge. They are NOT KOS unless you've fought him before. The guardian spawns every 8 hours "EQ" time. The oracle spawned every 6 hours "real" time. So go hunt the goblins on that same island while you wait. :)

A friend of mine Farms these robes, hes a 51 necro. all he does is put a few high dots on it then feigns and waits for him to die, the guardian doesnt even try to help.

a tip for all you high lvl necros that want to overcomplicate everything
# May 08 2001 at 4:39 AM Rating: Default
Another nice simple way to kill him is a upper 40 ranger and a upper 40 cleric. The ranger would first harmony the gaurdian then snare the oracle. The cleric would then fear the oracle and both ranger and cleric would attack the oracle. The gardian never joins in the fight and neither the cleric or the ranger should ever get hit at all.
What faction is given when you kill him?

It looks like he has his own faction. I can't remember the name exactly, but it had "oracle" in it. There was also an opposing oracle faction that went up. Killing him and his Paladin guard once took me from "indifferent" to "dubious", so I'm assuming it's a whole faction level drop for each kill (i.e. 2 kills of each will take you from "indifferent" to "scowls").

Easy with a necro
# Dec 06 2000 at 10:07 PM Rating: Default
At lvl49 a necro could kill both the guardian and this guy easy.The guardian would be conning blue and the Oracle green so you could just single pull the Guardian without this guy interfering.After fear kiting the guardian around and killing him all you have to do is sick your pet on this guy.

i conned him at lvl 32 and he conned way this thing is lvl 40...i soloed for some1 while he took care of the Gurdian. But im a druid so i was able to kite it fairly easy and there would be no way i could at 32...something 8 lvls higher would have resisted all i had

If you have a 34+ cleric with Atone that works too... or enchanter with mem blur

Hehe, your making sense again. We tried it a bit different, the Druid gave me a sow and lev. I was a 32 Paladin at the time. I attacked the guardian and ran around like a panzie while the Druid, Warrior, and Mage(all of us around 35) killed the oracle. It worked well till I missed the evac, So I ran until my lev wore off and sat and camped. It worked I guess we could have saved ourselves a lot of trouble but it was fun =).

Next time, have the druid harmony the guardian. Should be pretty smooth after that.

This would give me 1 more INT, and 20 mana, and i think some other stats too I forget the stats on it. But since it looks plain friggin but ugly, I'll stay with my RoE

As a matter of fact, I traded this thing for a RoE. I was tired of being begged for clarity, and looking like a little sissy boy.

He drops the Robe of the Oracle about 95% of the time for some odd reason sometimes he spawns with out it. His spawn rate is 7 hours. Don't try to solo him unless your 49 +, his dd's do about 250 each and hes a wizard, he'll dd every chance he gets, the best bet is having 2+ people to help. Idealy you want a druid or ranger to harmony the guardian, or have a 52+ pull the oracle (the guardian wont assist but will still agro if you get close). Once Oracle is away from the Guardian DD his brains out he has low hp for his level, due to his high output, if you can summon a pet do so. The oracle robe is 9 ac 5 int/wis +25 mana and looks neat, purecasters and monk only. It's worth roughly 1k PP.

You're on drugs if you think this thing is worth 1k. It might fetch 450 if you are lucky.
