    You must have completed the newbie city quests, as well as the Soulstone quest, and have your Brooch which you started out with.

    Gaz Commander Faltip can be found at -1576, -255 on a rock on the wall overlooking the camp.

    You say 'Hail, Gaz Commander Faltip'

    Gaz Commander Faltip says 'Strength of Marr to you, soldier. We have had some disturbing news from our spies along he Troll front lines. It seems that those malicious rutes have begun making use of their Dark Elven cohorts and their specific wizard teleporting abilities. Intelligence suggests that there are a large number of them prepring to assult the outpost by teleporting in the Southern Desert of Ro and attacking en masse. Your mission, should you choose to accept it and defend the intersts of Gukta, will be to take a company of soldiers to the spires and defend against the incursion. You must stop any and all Trolls and Dark Elves from making it to the swamp.'

    You say, 'I accept the mission.'

    Gaz Commander Faltip says 'I am glad that you have decided to accept the mission. You must prevent the enemy fom making it to the swamp at all costs. We also need to know which casters the enemy is deciding to send against us, as it may be useful to us in the future. It is because of this that you will need to receive and return to me any kind of insignias that they may have upon them. You must hurry now to the desert; intelligence suggests that they will begin their attack within the next ten minutes and will reach the swamp no longer than ten minutes after that. You must make haste to stop this attack!'

    You must make your way to the Southern Desert of Ro to stop the Troll incursion. Return to Gaz Commader Faltip with the four insignias.

    There will be four spawns ten minutes after accepting the mission: Two Dark Elves and two Trolls. After the first four are killed, four more will spawn. They will spawn on top of the broken wizard spires and stand there for a minute before attacking, the second wave attacks right away. Have at least three or four people in your group: They hit hard and fast for their level.

    The four are:
    - Teir'Dal Arcane Insignia (RED)
    - Troll Basher Insignia (PURPLE)
    - Troll Greenblood Insignia (GREEN)
    - Teir'Dal Priest Insignia (BLUE)

    You say, 'Hail, Gaz Commander Faltip'

    Gaz Commander Faltip says 'Welcome back. It would seem your mission was a success and you prevented the assault from coming to fruition. It would also appear that you have managed to collect the four insignias as
    I asked you to, so please hand them to me so that I can have a closer look at them. Good Job, soldier."

    Hand the four insignias to the commander.

    Gaz Commander Faltip says 'You have done well. You were able to stop the incursion in the desert and have kept the outpost safe from harm, at least for now. You have a brooch that symbolizes your dedication to the Guktan Army, but now I offer you a more powerful brooch, one that will strengthen your body and mind in the trials and times to come. Take it now and wear it proudly, that you might show the world what the Guktan Army is made of! At some time in the future, you might return and I may have another mission for you, but for now, good luck soldier, and keep up the good fight!'

    You have completed a mission from Gaz Commander Faltip and received a new brooch. As you complete more missions, the brooch will garner power. Well done!

    Your faction standing with Protectors of Gukta got better.

    You gain party experience!!

    If you hail him again immediately, you get:

    Gaz Commander Faltip says, 'Greetings once again. The life of a soldier in the Guktan Army is never a restful one. You did well with your last mission, stopping the Troll incursion before they enter the swamp. I will let you know if there are an furher missions that demand your attention.'

    (Assumed translation: You're not high enough in level for the next quest, this coming from a 31st level Shaman.)

    Need confirmation this quest still exists, current dialogues (logs preferred, as these are transcriptions), current faction hits if any, /loc of quest mobs, follow-up quests if any.

    I did this quest with my 51 shaman. Easy. But, I am not able to do the "next" quest yet. So, it seems to be higher than 51...

    And the shaman item had a 4 wis vice the 4 int of the wizard item, but all other stats the same.

    Some additional information.

    First off, you will see 4 mobs spawn on top of the wizard pyramid. They will be there 5 - 10 seconds, then despawn. This first group is UNTARGETABLE. About 3 minutes later, 2 will respawn. I had a wizard and warrior in first set. Once they are dead, 3 will spawn. I had a cleric, warrior, and necromancer. Each one dropped a sash, but since they are lore, I had to let one rot. At this point I left, since I had all 4 needed sashes. There may be more waves, I do not know.

    They didn't seem to cast much, but the warriors hit HARD for being green to a 51. Even the casters were hitting in 60s. So, make sure you are buffed, have a regen up, and you shouldnt have too much trouble.

    As the first one to post this, at 44 still havent hit the next level to upgrade this, if SOE has added an upgrade yet. When I received the FIRST reward, it said it is upgradable.
    RE: Upgrade?

    Level 65 shaman, 50+ AA's still no shot at upgrade...running on of inventory space. I have hailed every NPC in Gukta every levels since I got this in my mid-30s back in February..../sigh. I wish Sony would follow through with SOMETHING in Gukta. We were promised cultural shaman has 250 smithing, and nothing to make with it. I have done every quest in Gukta. (including the silly pally shield quest, thought it might help) No new quests have opened, sad...
    Faction hits

    Can anybody tell me what, if any, faction hits (positive and negative) you take for killing the spawns?

    [Sun Jun 13 03:44:34 2004] Auto attack is on.
    [Sun Jun 13 03:44:35 2004] Kovaak ASSASSINATES their victim!!
    [Sun Jun 13 03:44:35 2004] You backstab a Teir`Dal Spellbinder for 32000 points of damage.
    [Sun Jun 13 03:44:35 2004] You have slain a Teir`Dal Spellbinder!
    [Sun Jun 13 03:44:35 2004] a Teir`Dal Spellbinder's corpse says 'My comrades will avenge my death.'
    [Sun Jun 13 03:44:40 2004] This corpse will decay in 7 minute(s) 54 seconds.

    no faction hits. (was helping a pally friend :))

    on a side note, i think this got a little buggy for my friend and i... he went LD just before the spawn, and i saw staring at the 4 untargettables until he got back... right around when he did get back, 2 DE's spawned. Turns out that he came back into eq and was stuck in the wizzy spire (inside, below me). Not sure how, but he got out after the 2nd wave spawned, and this one included 2 DE's and 2 trolls. Upon looting all of the corpses, we found that all sashes dropped but 1 - the purple one. I'm positive we got all of the mobs and such, just no purple sash :/
    going to try to re-trigger and kill again.
    Wizard reward

    I did this today with my level 30 wizzy (and a lot of help from my 62 necro hehe).

    The mobs pop right on top of the wizzy spires in SRo -- same one Evac Ro sends you to. I'd parked my wizard a ways off... too far it seems. For the first round, 4 mobs popped on top of the spires -- one of each variety -- but they were untargetable. When I ran the wizzy close, 2 depopped and the others agro'd. Second round was 4 mobs with some dupes, and agro'd immediately.

    So 6 mobs total for the triggered encounter. As others have already reported, these didn't yield a complete set of insignias, so the wizzy had to gate back and trigger a second encounter. Same thing: 4 mobs pop but 2 de-pop in round one, 4 mobs in round two.

    Here's the wizard reward:

    Just tried to start this quest with my lvl 12 paladin and he said I had to be older (i.e. more lvls).
    Gukta quests?
    # Sep 11 2003 at 6:23 PM Rating: Decent
    I have done every quest there is to do in gukta, and only have on lead, which is one of the soldiers in the same room as the Frog that gives the quest for Marrs blessing that wants some specific type of drink. Want to progress and get that brooch upgraded!

    Anyone had any luck with quest progression after this first brooch quest?

    I completed the soulstone quest for my froggie pally which required me to combine the unfinished soulstone with the initiate's brooch. I did not receive the brooch back. Do I need to do the newbie quests over again?

    Just hail your Guktan Guild Master after you do the Soulstone quest and he'll give you a new one.

    I had to trigger this quest 4 times to get all the different types of mobs to spawn. It was not difficult for our group though. 57 Chanty, 57 Ranger and 44 Shammy Frog.

    odd. I got two trolls (Greenblood and Basher) on first pop and Greenblood, 1 arcane and 2 priests on second pop. All dropped the appropriate insignias. Done with a 39 monk and my 39 shammy. But I suggest 2 tanks. Arcane is a caster and they loved agroing death. 30 minutes done (including CR).
