Harla Dar is found wandering the northeastern portion of the Western Wastes. You must be at least apprehensive or indifferent to the Claws of Veeshan before she'll speak with you.

You say, 'Hail, Harla Dar'

Harla Dar says 'Have you seen him? I must find him, he has been gone far to long! If you have harmed him, I will slay you and all of your race! Tell me where he is!'

You say, 'Seen who?'

Harla Dar says 'My whelp, Frakadar. I was sunning myself and he wandered off. At first I did not worry, for he never went far before. But it has been hours and hours, and no other dragon has seen him. I have flown calling his name, but he does not answer. Klandicar was the last to see him, near the entrance of the Necropolis. I am forbidden to enter the Necropolis as long as this body draws breath, for good reason. But I must know if my son is in there!'

Klandicar has nothing to say regarding Frakadar. Head inside Dragon Necropolis and make your way deep inside to Zlandicar (/loc -250, -250, -250). Slay Zlandicar, loot Frakadar’s Talisman and return to Harla Dar.

Upon handing Frakadar’s Talisman to Harla Dar:

Harla Dar says 'This...this is not what I had hoped for. My whelp is lost, but I take some comfort in knowing that you helped destroy his killer. Zlandicar has been a blight upon our race since the beginning. Here is your reward, as I promised. It will protect you in more ways than are obvious. Leave me now, it is time to mourn.'

Your faction standing with Claws of Veeshan has been adjusted by 75.
Your faction standing with Yelinak got better.
Your faction standing with Kromzek got worse.
You gain experience!!

Minimum Faction wrong

The Minimum Faction reported on this quest is wrong. I was indifferent to Harla Dar and she didn't talk to me at all, much less accept Frakadar's Talisman. I can't confirm at this moment whether Amiable is enough, or you'd need higher, but Indifferent is definitely not enough.

I was also already max KoS to Kromzek, but here is the Yelinak hit:

[Sun May 19 08:31:22 2019] Your faction standing with <a Faction="430">Claws of Veeshan</a> has been adjusted by 75.
[Sun May 19 08:31:22 2019] Your faction standing with <a Faction="436">Yelinak</a> has been adjusted by 18.
[Sun May 19 08:31:22 2019] Your faction standing with <a Faction="448">Kromzek</a> could not possibly get any worse.
[Sun May 19 08:31:22 2019] You gain experience!

Did this turn in today at amiably.

Was already max with Yelinak, and max KoS with Kromzek unfortunately.

Does anyone know what the Item graphic is in the Chest slot? Robe? Leather tunic?

Does anyone have a screenshot?

The description text is wrong. I am indifferent and she won't talk to me. I try to hand her frakadar's talisman and she just gives it back.

Klandicar is a raid dragon in WW, in the canyon which has the Dragon Necropolis zone line, and is on COV faction. Zlandicar is the raid dragon in Dragon Necropolis, and is on Chetari and Zlandicar faction. It has been long known that Zlandicar drops Frakadar's Talisman. There is a rumor which started ? ago, for ? reason, by ? person that Klandicar drops Frakadar's Talisman also. I would speculate that Klandicar does not drop Frakadar's Talisman, and that the rumor was started by someone who mistook the names just as Dafdaf did. Please tell me if I am wrong.

Sounds reasonable. There's also no reason why Klandi would drop this item according to the lore of the velious dragons.

Harla Dar judges you amiably -- looks like it would wipe the floor with you!

You say, 'Hail, Harla Dar'

Harla Dar says 'I do not have time for you now, Gaulven. My son is lost, and you can not help me.'

[Harla Dar does not stop moving]

You say, 'who is he?' (and various permutations thereof)

[Harla Dar does not respond]

*Give talisman to Harla Dar*

Harla Dar says 'This... this is not what I had hoped for. My whelp is lost, but I take some comfort in knowing that you helped destroy his killer. Zlandicar has been a blight upon our race since the beginning. Here is your reward, as I promised. It will protect you in more ways than are obvious. Leave me now, it is time to mourn.'

*Receive shroud*

I completed this quest today at kindly faction. The quest faction hit took me to warmly, so I guess I was very high kindly.
Turn in

I went from kos to CoV to Amiable CoV with a Statue and Aow kill tonight I had spent about 3 days working faction and was still Kos to CoV as I was max kos to CoV and ally to kael prior to getting the Frakdar Talisman.

I went to SS checked faction after the raide, and saw I was amiable turned in about 20 helms. was still Amiable and went to WW found Harla Dar up hailed her she said her quest text. Handed the piece in a got the Shroud. So high amiable is probly best.

It's Milven. After zoning in from Wakening Lands just turn right at the first T-junction, follow the way left around the corner and upstairs and you will run into him.

Faction Argument Settled Easy
# Jan 06 2003 at 5:30 PM Rating: Decent
I have a theory on why the old discussion over what faction must be keeps going on.

Seems to me that faction is a score, and one person can be amiable and have more or less faction than someone else who is also amiable. This is because the other person has gotten more faction hits, but not enough to raise the rating yet.

I would suggest just doing it warmly to be sure... I mean, why take the chance on whether you are amiable and close enough to warmly, or amiable and too far from it?
Amiable didn't work
# Jan 03 2003 at 2:38 AM Rating: Decent
Had talisman for almost 3 months waiting to get my faction to amiable (it's not easy in a guild that likes to kill dragons :P). Found Harla Dar up and turned in Frakadar's Talisman and got a message like: I dont have time to help you, Im looking for him. No faction, no exp, no talisman, no shroud. :| I plan to get to Ally now and try again if I get another talisman.. ugh :p
Update 2002
# Sep 13 2002 at 7:14 AM Rating: Excellent
Completed this quest last night on the Tribunal. Harla indeed still has a 3 day spawn time; I showed up about 10 min after she died on Monday, returned at the time of death on Thursday and within 30 minutes (this varies of course) she was up again.

Faction - Currently only Amiable with CoV! So anyone saying you have to be higher is wrong.

Quest - When you /hail Harla Dar, she gives out a 2-3 line text talking about "Have you seen him? He is overdue, if you killed him, I will hunt you down..blah blah blah". I was too involved to write the actual text down, sorry. Didn't know if faction was high enough, and she didn't give any text in parenthesis, so I was unsure. I simply said "who is he" in /say, and she gave another, longer bit of text. At this point, I figured she wouldn't have proceeded if she would not give me the item, so I turned in the talisman, and she gave me faction, exp, and the item. Again, she does not give you any promting text in brackets. My guess is you don't even have to /say anything, just turn it in...

Location - Since I was concerned about not having enough faction (based on some other posts here!!), I had to find her 3 times...she wandered along to N wall each time, and stoped at the NE corner of the zone, where she would warp back to her bind and start walking again. I found her each time halfway between the SG zone and the NE corner. She does not stop when you /hail her.

My email is public, if you have further questions. Faction was my main question, as I trusted the 3 day timer issue.

3 day spawn?
# Jul 20 2002 at 11:09 AM Rating: Decent
Was she changes to 3 or 7 day spawn? I can't seem to find her anywhere. Please help
RE: 3 day spawn?
# Jul 29 2002 at 10:06 AM Rating: Decent
Found her today and got my shroud. The server was patched Saturday, so she's not too long a spawn. I caught her near the NE corner near Vraptin, one of the static nest dragons. I think that's the end of Harla's route. She walks into the water near there and then pops back near her spawn point.

RE: 3 day spawn?
# Jul 27 2002 at 8:50 AM Rating: Default
I'm not sure what her timer is. I've been looking for her as well after putting in about 40 hours to go from max CoV KOS to warm.

I believe that she does not respawn immediately after a patch like some of the dragons, because I haven't been able to find her with a tracker for 2 days. And since Verant keeps patching, she's not going to pop until they get all the new UI bugs resolved.

My EQ patience level is very low right now.

40 hours!?! Heh, what did you do, kill frost giants in GD? Doing Kael arena/ring wars you can get it up in maybe 10 hours max
Found her
# Jul 03 2002 at 8:36 AM Rating: Default
Finally got her, July 3. Got my shroud :) Saw her roaming against the wall in the northeast corner. Right when I got to her she got TL'd back to her spawn spot I guess, because she disappeared before my eyes. I ran back south and saw her near east end of the northern Scar, she was heading Northeast for teh wall again. Hope it helps!

RE: Level
# Jun 28 2002 at 9:07 AM Rating: Default
Considering you have to kill dragons you'd have to have some real nice friends to be able to get it at a level to low for killing the dragons. Plus no one has the faction to do this without some faction works too.

Minor Question
# Feb 21 2002 at 12:44 PM Rating: Default
I dont know if anyone knows or not. But if you were to kill Harla Dar. Would she drop the shroud.
I know more likely she would drop me, but I am just wondering for anyone who might know. thank you for your time.
