You say, 'Hail, Kurron Ni'

Kurron Ni says, 'Out of my way, stranger, I am on a delicate mission. Interfere with my search and I shall relieve you of your head! Bother me no more.'

You say, 'What do you seek?'

Kurron Ni says 'I have traveled here in hopes of finding a soul worthy of assisting me in completing my mission.

You say, 'I am worthy'

Kurron Ni says 'I doubt it, but I have been wrong before. Before I share with you the details of my mission, however, you must first prove your worthiness. Agreed?

You say, 'Agreed'

Kurron Ni says 'Very well then, my new friend. I have an acquaintance that stands in need of three pieces of Darkforge Armor. He requires the breast, greaves and helm to complete his set. I also must pay back a loan that has come due in the amount of 900 platinum. Return this to me and I shall share with you my dark mission, and the immeasurable reward that will be earned at its completion. Show your face here without fulfilling my request and I will offer you on the altar to Innoruuk himself. Be off!

He's the starting NPC for the Shadowknight Epic 1.0.

Game Update Notes: July 21, 2021: Reduced the respawn time for Kurron Ni from about 84 hours to about 4 hours.

Aren't the locs reversed? Shouldn't they be Positive2204.3965, Positive3252.7871 ? This loc is far Southeast in The Overthere.

Those were locations to be copied into a map file, not the same as in-game locations. Fixed.

Surprised no one has mentioned this here, but his name is Innoruuk spelled backwards. Considering he's quite strong, may he actually be Innoruuk in disguise?

Spawns here. TAKES A LONG TIME. Been here 3 days on and off, finally was there when i logged on.


This part is NOT NEEDED for the SK epic.

The Invis trick to become indifferent works when giving the items to an NPC, Cos/Cloudy Potion/Someone invis' you, THEN make sure they are indifferent, then turn in.
Requires turn in / resistant

I'm currently doing the Shadowknight 1.0 on a level 51 SK just for kicks (he has a lvl 51 Mage/Bard I box as well that make up my "retro" crew that is pointlessly doing old content at lower levels), to clarify a few things:

1. Some people seem to believe you can skip the Darkforge Armor turn in and just kill him for the Note to Duriek. At least in my experience this isn't accurate, and you also get a faction hit for the SK Epic Faction from that turn in so you shouldn't really skip it even if it is possible. When you turn in the Darkforge and 900p, he actually very briefly despawns and then spawns again. So I suspect the version that drops the note only gets spawned once a Darkforge + plat turn in has occurred. There's no "camping" this guy for the note, at least in my experience.

2. If you're for some reason like me and doing this at lvl 50/51, he's easily moloable with a healer merc, but he has 23,000 hp and is resistant to all of our dot lines and our spear nukes will get resisted a lot/partial resists. I blew HT on him just because of how slow he was dying and he still took awhile to die.
still no drop

He spawns near the southwest-most building in the Dark Elf Fort. from the POK book, enter the fort hugging the wall to your right. keep hugging it, he should be on the left, overlooking the sea. he is on a long spawn timer, if he isn't up when you go looking for him, try again in 6 hours.
/loc 3245, 2200

try asking a friendly druid, ranger, or bard to track him for you.

This guy was really easy to kill. Soloable at 60. What sux is the spawn time which takes FOREVER... you just have to catch him at the right time i guess

Still no confirmed spawn time on Kurron. Just after the patch on wednesday dec 7th, I logged in expecting to find him standing there. Nope. SoE had miraculously finished thier patch 1 and 1/2 hours ahead of scheduel /GASP and I must have missed him. Please post any info of spawn time. Have read anywhere from 2 days to 7 days, and that doesnt narrow it down any.

I dont think he is on VS faction. I believe the faction he is on is called TrueSpirit faction or something like that. Check the SK epic walkthrough for more details. Hence why Iksar and other race SK's can approach him.
# Jan 07 2005 at 2:03 PM Rating: Decent
please list class and race so we can figure out what faction this guy is on.

He cons apprehensive to MY DE sk
since he requires darkforge armor which is on freeports it would be really interesting if he was indeed on freeport faction.
I am assuming he doesnt effect any factions since noones listed any but just a point of clarification woulda been nice.

You can find this guy at 3250,2200

Where does he spawn? We have been looking for him for a while now with no luck.
Rumors dispelled
# Jul 04 2004 at 12:00 PM Rating: Decent
I had heard a few rumors that if you walk up, say the "What mission" flag, and he aggro's you, you get th drop anyway.

I dislike rumors like this, because their either true and make te inital part unneeded, or tey are false and will wind up getting someone killed for nothing.

SO, I was there in OT helping a guildie mage get her piece from Capt. Rottgrime, which was a ****** pull until I read the pot about the Hailing trick here on allakhzam, thanks to whomever posted that.

While we were noodling the pull before I read the post, trying to figure it out before I looked it up, I decided to pull Kurron Ni using that flag trick to settle the issue.

The result: He DOES aggro, but he does NOT drop anything. THat's it. Case closed. Done. That flagging trick does not work. So, if your thinking of trying it, do what I'm doing and begin grabbing the Darkforge armor.
Bout Time

Ok so after I got all the armor needed to give this guy I ran into OT to see if he was up, then I found out hes on a 3 day timer or whatever hes on, so 2 days later I ran in and check on him and he was there, and after the like 20min it took me to find some people I killed him and got my letter with a group of 3, 55 SK (me) 56 Shaman and a 65 Ranger. I pulled him into the water and around the wall, cause im KoS, I tanked him for most of the fight while ranger shot arrows and shammy healed me, eventualy shammy went oom and so ranger ran in to tank, and almost died before mob started to run. All in all we killed him I got my letter and now i need to do a few more things before Innys Curse is in the hands of who it should be.....a gnome!

PS! my HT with Unholy Aura only did 233dmg to him

You DO need to do the complete turn in for him to drop the letter. Just tested it today with my hubbys 61 war, my 55SK and our 55 druid. I messed up and turned in a Helm, BP and (by accident) Gauntlets instead of greaves along with the 900pp. He didn't drop the letter. /sigh I guess I should read more carefully next time.

I finnally reached level 51 and had all the Darkforge armor and pp I needed to do the turn in to this guy. I am KOS in the outpost due to hunting in KC alot so I couldnt bind here so i would just run through every night before I logged off. On 8-29-03 I run through OT to check before meeting my guild for a raid and there he is. I give a yell out to see if we can take him before raid and told we will get him after. Well we go to raid and get wiped the first tiem out and end up having to reset and try again. Needles to say by the time I get back to OT he is gone. I was mad but kept on checking every night. Two nights later on 8-31-03 he pops again. I do a scramble and get some guildies and some pickups and head that way. Ended up with a 59 Ranger, 57 Ranger, 47 Druid, 65 Cleric, 65 Necro, 65 Warrior and myself a 51 SK. They wait near the POK book near the beach and I run to do the turn in. Turned in the armor and plat and ran for the ocean. I had SOW and have a 140 swimming but about the time I got to the end of the of the outpost he caught up to me. He beat me down to about 50% before I could get close enough for the rest to jump in. I feigned death and the warrior grabbed aggro while I got a quick heal from the cleric. From there on it was no problem. We beat on him til he fell. Dont think the cleric did more than two heals the entire fight and he started running when he got to about 15%. He fell over and I looted the letter from him. Just for those wondering you don't get the armor or plat back from him when he dies. Anyway I thanked everyone who helped and ran to Paineel to meet Duriek.

Hope this helps and good luck

My 55 SK on vazaelle finally got to do the turn in. He spawned yesterday ( June 7, 2003) in the evening, after about 3 days of waiting. First time I conned him was at 52....he was yellow, did it again at 53 and was still yellow. then yesterday at 55 he was blue telling me he's not 55 but 54. Still hits pretty hard pretty fast. Also still has high Magic Resistance, though my 53 shammy friend that came got E-bolt off 3 times then started to get summoned =x. Well just wanted to add in info to help out. Thnx =).

Need a clue

I play on Xegony.. Been waiting for about 2 weeks for this guy to spawn. Does anyone know for a fact what his spawn time is? And does anyone have a clue as to when he was killed last?

Does he drop the note?
# Nov 13 2002 at 2:03 PM Rating: Decent
Do you need to give him the armor and 900pp to get him to drop the note or does he drop it reguardless?
Just did him

Im a 53 sk, had a 56 clr, 52 clr, 53 mnk, 52 rog, 51 shm, 56 dru, and a 40 mnk that was eager to help.

He responded to "what do you seek?" but did not respond further to anything. I con apprehensive. I gave him the stuff (did not hide) and he did not respond but I got faction. I said "what mission?" and then pulled him back to the group.

We did not waste efforts casting on him. Just melleed him and let the clerics and druid heal.

Most he hit me for was 156. Im lvl 53 and ac unbuffed is 992 (didnt look after buff). Only buffs I had was hp and ac buffs (didn't look at them) and a dmg shield which worked.

I HTed him just to see if it would stick, did 346 of the 791.

Cleric had no prob healing and many people had not much to do at all. It was easy.

P.S. Had group waiting in the corner where goodies are binded and walked backward to them when he attacked. Good races can assist you easy if you do it that way.

Oh almost forgot. He dropped the letter. Afterward he conned aprehensive still. No big deal, cause afterward I went to Paineel and gave Duriek the letter and elixer and he responded to me completely, he was apprehensive as well.

Oh yeah and...lol, I messed up the first time and hit "a" (yeah I know I should change it) without having text bar up. I just let him kill me and had rogue pull corpse back for rez. Did not waste time medding just looted, grabbed an ac and hp buff and went back to work on him.

Ok ok....having done in this guy several times, it is time to dispell some myths. First of all, Kurron Ni is not on VSR/OT Faction. I am VERY KOS in the Outpost these days, just gave him my stuff, said "What Mission" and then proceded to hold beat down.

Second is while he is resistant he is NOT immune. I had two high lvl Dr00Ls with me. They were able to land Fire and Cold based nukes, and they say the spells did full damage. He did resist my Dooming Darkness and Life tap did not have its full effect, however Boil Blood did land.

Bottom line he goes down easy, but I am a firm believer in overkill, would suck to fail and have to re-farm all that Darkforge armor. So round up all the folks you can.
