Note: you must be level 55 or you will not be rewarded.

You say, 'Hail, Tunarean Earthmelder'

Tunarean Earthmelder says 'Hail my friend, unfortunately I am sorry I cannot talk right now. The giants must be dealt with.'

You say, 'What giants?'

Tunarean Earthmelder says 'The giants are continuing to put forth efforts to encroach the lands blessed by Tunare. We need an outrider or preserver to aid us in our continued fight.'

You say, 'I am an outrider.'

He then asks you to kill the Frost Giant Overseer, who spawns in front of Kael in the Wakening Lands. When you kill him, he says something about a giant named Kallis.

Kallis spawns in the arena nearby the Vindicator. There are also two Protectors of Zek with him (you need the protectors whose names are capitalized).

Kill all three and collect their heads. The heads are named:

Frost Giant Overseer's Head
Kallis's Head
Smashed Protector of Zek's Head
Bloody Protector of Zek's Head

Bring all four heads back for your Helm of the Tracker.

Bloody Protector of Zek's Head and Smashed Protector of Zek's Head both drop off the two "a Protector of Zek" (must be capital P) that are standing at Kallis Stormcaller's sides.

complete quest dialog:

You say, 'Hail, Tunarean Earthmelder'
Tunarean Earthmelder says, 'Hail, my friend. Unfortunately I cannot talk right now. The giants must be dealt with.'
You say, 'what giants'
Tunarean Earthmelder says, 'The giants are continuing to put forth efforts to encroach the lands blessed by Tunare. We need an outrider or preserver to aid us in our continued fight.'
You say, 'i am an outrider'
Tunarean Earthmelder says, 'We have need of you to disrupt the construction efforts of the giants in the Wakening Land. Find the frost giant overseer, kill him and any others that are responsible for the building and bring back their heads.'

no further dialog upon turning in the 4 heads, just the quest reward.

How to get this helm
# Jun 10 2005 at 2:39 PM Rating: Decent
I did this quest about 11mths ago when I was level 52. I still have not turned in the head yet as I'm only 53. I took a 10mth break to discover there is a real world out there....

Anyway, Kallis is the only hard part of this quest, as he has the two protectors. My guildies and I took all 3 out over a full 20min period. We were all level 49-52. The cleric was the 49. We were not a Tight Group, but we were a Good Group.

Here is how you do it...
1) Arrow pull the protector on the left first. Kill him away from the other two. If you pull others, run or you die.
2) Arrow pull the right guard. Kill him away from the other two. If you pull Kallis too, you might live, probably not.
3) Arrow pull Kallis! Remember to pull Kallis away from him spawn point if you plan on having an extended fight like us, as the giants will respawn during the battle, then you die of course.

Be prepared for a long fight. Kallis has a ton of HPs. He does not hit overly hard (80-275, mostly 200) but he does hit somewhat fast.

NOTE: All giants will run when HPs are low. Root them before they get back to their buddies, or you die.

Good luck and have fun. I miss this game.

I have noticed a few complaints that this is for Tunare Followers, However as it is in the Plane of Growth what exactly was you expecting?
What about Karana?
# Mar 30 2004 at 3:45 AM Rating: Default
WTF?! Yet another instance when karana rangers get shafted!! Or is there a corresponding quest for karana worshipers elsewhere?
# Mar 29 2004 at 2:45 PM Rating: Decent
was just on raid with guild, and looted 2 of 3 heads , then i remembered being on a raid in 2003 and was told this was only for woodelf rangers. now i see human is there also. when did this happen?

# Mar 24 2004 at 6:10 AM Rating: Decent
Buddy of mine has 3 heads. I have overseer's head. HE is a troll SK Cazic Thule. Is there anyway for him to use illusions to allow the turn in?
# Nov 11 2003 at 11:19 AM Rating: Decent
2boxed him this week with 58 shaman and 58 ranger

Was a good fight, but never really close. Had to snare him twice and slow him twice
easy kill
# Aug 04 2003 at 12:28 AM Rating: Decent

What for MQ
# Feb 08 2003 at 8:50 PM Rating: Default
I did MQ with a lvl 55 War, and im a 58 Ranger. We where both dubiously so we did Muffin quest, he did more than me i think and he conned appre to Earthmelder, i conned Amaibly. He hailed him first then gave head, then i gave my 3 heads. Then woot! New Helm.

#REDACTED, Posted: Jan 14 2003 at 4:56 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Man I cant wait til' I'm lvl 55 so I can do this quest. I cant wait to get done with 3 quests I have already started =P.... I have started The Ice Forged Shackles quest (bracer) And I have started Kromrif Military leggings. And I have started The Runed Scouts breastplate, (actually havent started that one yet)
# Jan 13 2003 at 9:38 PM Rating: Decent
When you get to a pull spot where the Protector's of Zek spawn, is there anyway that you might aggro Derakator The Vindicator? cuz them im pretty damn sure that you would get whiped out~? and on this website, it says the helm procs a 55% slow with a 490DoT in 20ticks, i dont think it is correct, cuz i thought the effect on the helm was Truesight or whatever
# Nov 09 2002 at 2:17 PM Rating: Decent
If you multiquest for this item do both peeps turning in need to worship Tunare or just the person getting the helm?

To specifically answer the question, no, the diety requirements on the item recieved have no bearing on wether or not you can do the quest or not. However, the diety of the players can affect how much the quest-giver likes them, and if they don't worship Tunare, it may be difficult for them to get near them to do the MQ.

i thought if u werent a tunare follower u wouldnt get too far in PoG with out fighting
# May 24 2003 at 3:04 AM Rating: Default
Depends on what race/diety you are. "Good" combinations can walk around, "evil" cannot.

head drops
# Aug 26 2002 at 4:59 AM Rating: Decent
Hi all
just checking; does Kallis and the protectors drop their heads everytime?
And what is their respawn rate?
RE: head drops
# Nov 08 2002 at 12:50 AM Rating: Default
drop the heads everytime, and i believe the respawn is same timer as rest of arena area mobs

There is no quest, as it is a choice you make at the beginning, like sex of toon or race. None of these can be changed for any reason.

Wow. Never heard of the Helm untill today. Was invited to a Kael raid today and happened to be the only ranger there. All three heads were in my posession within the first 30 minutes. Thank you High Guardians!

Now for the overseer (and level 55).

ok if this can be mq, then, friends, my question is this, if only one person of the mq is 55, can i, a 49 ranger get the helm in that fashion? or has anyone under 55 tried this yet? thanks

No, you won't get the reward if you're under 55. If the person with the 3 heads was under 55 and you were above, I'm pretty sure it might work though.

Nope, EVERYONE has to be 55+ to MQ this, both the MQer and the intended Reciever. If you are under 55 and try handing him ANYTHING, he will automaticly eat it, and tell you that you are not of suffiecient level and to go kill rats or something. =/

# Jul 10 2002 at 8:00 AM Rating: Decent
thankfully faction is not an issue on this quest...i am a KoS ranger of Tunare and finished the quest...it was a MQ with a non-KoS ranger...used sneak and bam new helm...you get no xp but still get the helm...well i thought i would let all the rangers like myself who have screwed up Tunare faction by being stupid or letting a friend who is an idiot play your character...p.s. muffin quest does fix faction enough to get epics as well but WILL not help PoG faction.

MQ & Overseer
# Jul 03 2002 at 3:38 PM Rating: Excellent
We multi-quested the helm. A 56 bard had the three heads from Kael (Kallis, Smashed Protector of Zek, Bloody Protector of Zek), and I had the Frost Giant Overseer’s head. Happy Day!!!

A note for those with "enhanced" tracking abilities (you know who you are)...The Frost Giant Overseer actually appears as "Frostgiant Overseer" on tracking. If he's up, you'll find him almost straight out from the Kael entrance in the construction area among other giants (In Wakening Lands).

I can also confirm that his spawn time is somewhere between 2 to 3 days. He is indeed level 56; however, he has a TON of hit points. My group had a 55 ranger (me), 56 monk, 54 Cleric, 54 Necromancer, and 54 Shadowknight. He was down to 25% health when the monk and I died and everyone else had to zone. We tried again with the help of a second group and we succeeded.

Killed him today with a 60 war, 55 war, and me - 59 necro (monk pet). Was a VERY tough fight. We were all below 30% health at the end - the MA had 120hp remaining when the little yellow line hit us. The only spells i could land were taps. The MA had a slowstick, we could not have done it with out the slow since I was the only healer.

I looted the head. My question is this, can I MQ this item with FD? Or should i just destroy it?
# Jun 26 2002 at 3:53 PM Rating: Excellent
Just a note 55 shaman apprehensive successfully multi questest this..had the heads of kallis, and the zek protectors....the ranger had the overseers head.
# Jun 24 2002 at 7:35 AM Rating: Decent

Well I had no clue about this quest until one of the heads dropped in Kael the other day and I was commanded by the raid leadr to loot it. Luckily I picked Tunare when I started playing the game, now three more heads and 4 more lvls.....

Me and some friend Took down the Overseer last night, being overconfident (ie. Impaitent) we tried it with just half a group; 54 Pally, 53 Wizard, 55 Bard, and me a 52 Ranger. Needless to say we got our butt's handed to us on a platter, but did manage to get him down to half life before we had to zone (ok, me and the pally died, and YES HE DOES SUMMON).
Once the CR was done (thanks Kimbera for the rezz's) we had a full group, with a cleric and chanter, and another ranger. I single pulled the laborers that had repopped, and pulled the Overseer back to the group where we were able to extract our revenge! Me and the new Ranger both rolled for the head and I did win =)... Just gotta make 55 now.
I guess my suggestion after doing this would be, make sure to have a Cleric, and someone to slow unless your a bunch of lvl 60's and think getting hit for 166 tickles (you know who you are). Remember he does summon, he took a very keen liking to our Chanter, he thought she was cute I guess. Also make sure you clear the giants from the Kael entrance, as adds suck.
Good luck fellow rangers, I'm looking forward to this helm, its sweet, and the fight was a blast since he conned red to all but one of us.

Killed him yesterday with a 59 shammy on slows, thanks Sydnie, a 57 warrior a 46 and a 60 Cleric along with myself a 58 Outrider. Having the first spawn taken I camped the 24 hour time listed in an earlier post...no pop.

It definately did spawn for a 3 day pop time a little ahead of a perfect 3 day time by about 3 hours. Had no problem whittling him down and since we set up camp behind him there was no summoning involved during our fight.

Just have to make a new Thurg gate potion bop in PoG and do the hand in now.
