Not many know about/remember these, but ... IF you dont mind blowing faction, this is the place to be.
A long time ago when I needed Kael faction (and this wasn't a hot zone.) I put my iksar necro in there with a pet up and went /afk for the day. Maybe it was two days. He would regen enough to be at full health, and the pet just wasted the mobs. Didn't get any exp, or loot. Got plenty of faction, though.

I probably shouldn't post this, heh. Sure to get nerfed. Oh well, live and love the dream.

Dropped Picks

I believe that the picks dropped are part of a quest for a velium pick. All the details of this quest, I do not know cause I cannot use the loot at the end of the quest.
Fastest way

Sadly, I've found that the Bvellos Bounty quest is pretty much the fastest way to get your Kael Faction (with exception of killing Dain or Velkator.)

And the Coldain miners drop the coldain heads you need for turn in more often than any other mobs as far as I can tell.

Best place to find them is at the mines, loc neg6150, neg3300.

They're all on an 8min respawn timer, so if you are soloing, it isn't that bad (there are 9 velium/coldain miners I kill in the first 3 rooms and go back and forth.)

On average I get 1 head per 9kills.

Whether you are raiding (*if* you succeed on nameds) or doing this, you're looking at about 24hours of playtime to go from kos to ally.


Another thing, they drop about 2pp/each, but the picks are only worth 1sp. Heads go for 80pp/each in bazaar on Prexus.

anyone know what the picks they drop are for?
Where are the mines?)

Where exactly can i find those guys, and are they static or wanderes?

Do these guys drop the Dwarf heads so I can also raise the other giant faction (forget the name, Tomzek or something)?

Miners do, indeed, drop Heads. The spawn time is fast (about 6 minutes) and so the mines can be a good area to collect Heads. Just be wary of the Expedition Guards, who are level 50.
