After finishing the first three quests, ask Loremaster Borannin 'What is brewing?'

Loremaster Borannin says 'Ahh yes, good to see you again Maeve . I wish it were under better circumstances that we meet today. For some time now we have sent teams of our finest rogues to gather intelligence for the Dain. Tanik Greskil is one of our best. He was recently sent into the heart of Kael Drakkel on a very important mission and has not returned. He is now long overdue, and fearing the worst, our wise council has asked me to dispatch a rescue party to determine what has become of him and return him to safety. I have decided to give you this opportunity to build upon the trust you have earned from the council. Will you accept this mission?'

You say, 'I will accept this mission'

Loremaster Borannin says 'The council will be pleased to hear of your acceptance. Scour the regions surrounding the city of the Giants. Discover what happened to Tanik and, if possible, return him to Thurgadin. If you are successful, remember to hand me your woven shawl. We seem to be running low on them, but I must say Mordin has never had so much help in the kitchen. Anyway, I will eagerly await word of your findings. Good luck, and may Brell protect you.'

If you wander around the Eastern Wastes near NEG 6644 POS 4337 you will eventually see a message "the snow crumbles away revealing an injured coldain." This reveals Tanik Greskil.

You say, 'Hail, Tanik Greskil'

Tanik Greskil says 'Outlander! Thank Brell you've found me! I am the last surviving member of my unit. Our mission was somehow compromised, the bloody Kromrif knew just where to find us... I can't imagine how they knew. I was barely able to escape with my life and wandered into a trap here. I am badly hurt and need your help.'

You say, 'I will help'

Tanik Greskil says 'Quickly, give me a vial of Veluim Vapors so I can return home, I am in desperate need of some attention from our clerics.'

You say, 'What are velium vapors?'

Tanik Greskil says 'Drat! Are you telling me you don't have one with you? Run back to Thurgadin at once and speak with Frundle, she can make you one. I will do what I can to stay alive. I may need to move about a bit to keep from being discovered. Hurry now outlander, you're my only hope.'

Once back in Thurgadin, find Frundle.

You say, 'Hail, Frundle Frenklar'

You say, 'What velium vapors?'

Frundle Frenklar says 'Ahh, you come seeking my family recipe? After all you've done for our people it's the least I can do. First you must fashion a velium vial, then combine the vial with two small pieces of velium in this jar. That's all there is to it. Please keep the recipe a secret.'

You say, 'What velium vial?'

Frundle Frenklar says 'I'm no potter mind you, but if I remember correctly it's a small brick of velium, three crystalline silks, and two glass shards. Then you'll have to finish up by firing it in a kiln with a high quality firing sheet.'

You receive a Velium Purifier.

Small Pieces of Velium and Small Blocks of Velium can be looted on Ry`Gorr Miners in Crystal Caverns or off spiders in Velketor's Labyrinth.

Crystalline Silk can be found on spiders in both zones.

1) Combine a small (7 lb) brick of velium, three unstacked crystalline silks and two glass shards in a pottery wheel. You will receive an Unfired Velium Vial.

2) Combine the Unfired Velium Vial and a HQ firing sheet in the kiln and receive a Velium Vial.

3) Combine the Velium Vial and two unstacked small pieces of Velium in the Velium purifier. The Velium Purifier disappears and you are left with a Vial of Velium Vapors. The vial is a lore item and has one charge of gate to Thurgadin.

The vial is trivial at skill 122.

Do not camp the spot where Tanik Greskil is, because I did it, and got a message: You have been ambushed by frost giants! And two Kromrif Death Squad will spawn, and try to kill you.

When you get Tanik Greskil to spawn again, just hand him the vial.

Tanik Greskil says 'Thank you. I shall be eternally grateful to you. Should you ever require my assistance I pledge to you my aid. Please deliver this to Borannin, it is imperative that he deliver this to the Dain at once. Farewell for now outlander...'

You gain experience!!

Then head back to Thurgadin and hand Boradinn the note and your old shawl, for the new shawl.

Loremaster Borannin says 'Words cannot express our gratitude for your deeds outlander, you have saved a hero of our people from certain death. Please accept this, the Fur-lined shawl, as a token of our sincere appreciation. You are indeed among the most highly regarded Humans to set foot in Thurgadin. The next time we meet be sure to ask me how to further advance your reputation with the coldain.'

Thanks to whoever found the /pet guard here trick. I made up a map with more info. Tanik shows up about every 30 minutes or so using this method.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

This combined with the dropping of an item trick got Tanik to spawn for me on the second try in like 20 minutes. Compared to the hours and hours of play time I spent running around to make the little dorf spawn, this had me laughing and cheering out loud.

Thought I would let everyone in on the how to find the trigger for Tanik or the Death Squad.
First what you need to do is make a pet, or find someone who can make one for you. You need to make the pet at the top of the ramp to Keal. Now have the pet guard that loc. ( /pet guard here ) The pet will face a direction. now you need to see where the pet is pointing and then walk in that direction with the pet following you (/pet follow me ) take 10 steps and repeat the pet guard command. Your pet will point you in the direction you need to go to walk over the trigger. If this doesn't make sence just try it and you will see. Make sure you have SoW or FD cause the Giants spawn more times then Tanik will. Good hunting!!!!

Ok. I just completed this part of the quest in about two hours. I may have been lucky, but I learned some important info to pass on.

Tanik and the Death Squad are not spawns. They are a trap. Like all traps, they 'migrate' through a series of set locations. Appearing for a while at a /location, then moving on to the next.

If you don't have your personal bard/rogue around to Sense Traps for you (and I didn't <sigh>), there is another way to detect them. Start my making sure the Item Dropping flag is set to 'Confirm' in the General Section of your Options screen. Walk to the top of a rise where visibility is pretty good. Take an item from inventory and start clicking on all the visible terrain. You don't have to be entirely accurate, but take your time, the traps don't move that fast. Ignore the 'Are you sure you want to drop this item' message and keep clicking across the terrain. When you hit the 'trap', you will get the message, "You are too far away from You have to trade". Prep yourself and go trigger the trap.

I only found two traps before I got the Tanik to spawn, the first was a Death Squad, the second triggered both Tanik and a pair of giants.

Hope this helps! Good hunting!

I would just like to thank whoever made this post. I ran around for 6 days for an average of 2 and a half hours each day looking for Tanik, and nada. Thanks to this method, got him in about 15 minutes. Here are a couple of pointers that may help some peeps.

I binded myself at the top of the ramp. This way I could run when the GDS spawned and just gate right back and start looking again immdediately.

The spawn can't be a 10 min timer, I spawned the GDS 3 times in 10 mins by gating back and starting to look.

When you find the spawn that is the GDS, the messege reads something like "You are to far away to trade that item"

When it's Tanik's spawn, it reads "You are to far away from you to stuble"

Been at it for almost 20 hours over 2 days. I've tried everything. Been up and down the ramp, running, walking, crouching, sneaking, invis, not invis, levitating, not levitating and jumping. I've run it zig-zag, up and down, side to side.
I've done this on the ramp, the ramp walls, outside the ramp on both sides and walked a search pattern with friends in all directions for several hundred loc points. I've tried killing potential placeholders, killing the deathsquad (which sucked). I've tried talking to coldain in the zone. I've tried everything I can think of for A VERY LONG TIME. Several shifts of 8 hours or more.
After petitioning (twice) to ensure it wasn't broken, and receiving the "nothing is wrong" message...I'm afraid I'll have to give up.

I like quests, and I really liked these new velious quests, but this is still a game and it should be fun...not tedious. This level of frustration is ridiculous. There's no hint about where he might be and the information posted here seems to be a mish-mash of lucky spawns in different locations. How about a blood-stain on the ground? How about a bit of snow that looks cracked? How about anything that HINTS that you're on the right track??

I don't mind logging in the hours to accomplish something. Long spawns are ok. A few dozen placeholders are ok. Rare drops are ok. This is not ok.
RE: Still no Tanik
# May 23 2001 at 9:28 PM Rating: Default
I understand your fustration completely, I just finished this quest today after 2 full days of being really annoyed. There was NOTHING on the ground, no indicator at all. It's a randomly placed trigger (which is really frustrating) and moves each time.
As I posted below, I never triggered anything on the ramp, but talked to people that triggered him on the ramp after 3 minutes of looking. I petitioned twice as well.

One thing I noticed was I got the dwarf to spawn in the same side of the area above the ramp as I had just spawned the 9th death squad. Someone else said they think there might be a trick and it seemed to work for me. If you find the death squad to the left of the ramp area, keep searching the left side, don't go to the other side. It may be nothing but it worked for me today on my 16th hour in 2 days. When I found him, he was closer to the walrus area than the ramp (thanks Verant for making the spawn area HUGE).

Good luck, and hang in there, the feeling you get when you get that little pest to spawn is awesome (though to be honest, I really wanted to nuke him for being a pain).

By far the hardest part of this quest for me was finding tanik. Failed making the vial once, and had to run back to CC to get more silks (pottery was at 122, worked it up to 128 and tried again). I advise when picking up the items in CC to get at least enought to make 2 vials (i.e 6 crystaline silks, 4 small pieces of velium and 2 velium ore bricks to account for failures. Extra silks can always be sold to other people doing the quest or tailors trying to raise skill.

Anyway, back to Finding Tanik. I could not for the life of me get anything to spawn near the two pillars down at the ramp, found him finally on the cliff to the left of the ramp. My advice to those of you having trouble is to hit the different spawn points and not get stuck trying to spawn him in front of the guards down at the bottom of the ramp for hours and hours and hours (/bonk me!)

Good luck to all of you and watch out for Giants! I also hear that the shawls may be upgraded a bit in the next patch and the drop rate for threads will be increased from the spiders in Veks Lab. Will have to level a bit to take them, but can't wait to do part 5! Lets hope that we get 10 quests for shawls like the coldain ring quest, would love to see a 10 AC/WIS/INT shoulder piece! Although I hope we dont have to master every trade skill, baking and pottery were okay, but please, no blacksmithing or jewel craft, my fingers almost fell off from all the fishrolls!

If you see me in EW and need and hand on Bertox with spawning Tanik, send me a /tell, be glad to help you!

I spent 6 hours today running all over the ramp and areas around the ramp. In that time, I triggered the death squad twice in about a 10 minute period. Both times I was almost to the ramp but not on it yet, and both spawn points were very close together. Very frustrating to waste 6 hours and have nothing to show for it...
RE: Finding Tanik
# May 23 2001 at 3:27 PM Rating: Default
As a follow up to my own post, I spent another 4 hours today, and after spawning 4 more death squads, I finally got Tanik!!!!

I NEVER once got ANYTHING to spawn on the ramp. All 10 death squad spawns and 1 Tanik spawn came in the areas above the ramp. The trigger location changed each time. I think there MAY be some merit to the post that said it seems the spawns change sides each time. For example, if you found the death squad trigger to the left of the ramp, then the next trigger on the left side should be Tanik. This is a rumor but could be true.

When I got him to spawn, we were to the left of the ramp (left when facing the ramp down) and had triggered the death squad on that side, so we keept looking. He was about halfway between the ramp edge and a tree near the walrus area, and about the middle of the ramp length.

VERY frustrating but also a great feeling when you get him to spawn!

I have got 7th times on the Gaints DS but NEVER saw Tanik. and I found that the Gaints are spawn outside the ramp (that's mean the Spawn is no randomly on EW???).......I have been spent about 3 days on up.

I have reported that to GM but he just told me the SPAWN is working fine.....maybe he imply the Gaints DS ~ LOL

Finding Tanik is painful...............I have gave up to do so ATM.

Good luck to you all!
# May 20 2001 at 9:02 AM Rating: Default
This is the method that worked for me.

Go to the bottom of the ramp- getting as close to the double pillars as possible without aggroing the giants.

Now start at one wall, and cross the ramp. When you get to the other side, come back across in the other direction, moving slightly up the ramp to cover a bit more ground.

By going back and forth across the ramp in a "zig-zag" you cover all the ground there. Eventually, i got tanik to spawn - twice using this method since the first time i blew it. hehe.

hope that helps.

I'm on my Tenth hour of searching for this little freak and all I can find is Death Squads, 10 of those so far. I've run zigzags on the ramp on the sides in front of the ramp. I've camp the spots mentioned in this forum. I've brought over lots of friends to help. And the only time I seen the freak is to watch some shammy killin him even after I explained the quest.

# May 16 2001 at 9:18 AM Rating: Default

Does anyone know about Taniks faction? If I am in wolf form will he attck me instead of acepting the vial? Wolf form seems to **** most coldain off. Also, will he pop if you are invisible or hide/sneak? Can the death squad see thru invis?

I have spent about 6 hours running around all the places where people have posted that they have found him and I still can't find him. I have once seen the death squad, but they were at the GD zone line (trained there I assume) However, I spend most of my time hunting him while camo'd. Does this make a difference?

It doesn't matter if you're invis or not. I spawned him last night while I was invis running to the kael ramp from the southern side of it because I was killing man o wars and walruses. I wasn't in wolf form though, so I'm not sure what your faction would be with him. And yes... the death squad sees through invis.
where is tanik
# May 15 2001 at 6:17 PM Rating: Default
This is where i found him although he has been sited by me in another place ,
As you look at kael ramp there are 2 trees on the left hand side he was about 3 foot behind and to the right of the left tree you may ask the location, blah it wont make any difference if i told you he might not be there but he was for me and also when i took a lvl 40 wizzie friend there he was there again .
Then as we left the seconed time we ran accross the front of the ramp and he popped about 10 foot from the corner of the ramp.(the right corner as u look at it)
NEVER have i seen the death squad maybe i was lucky i dont know but hey yippee for me lol.
Well if all else fails just send me a tell on prexus i am a true addict and always on i will gladly take you to where i found him.

# May 15 2001 at 8:44 AM Rating: Default
I have spent COUNTLESS hours trying to get Tanik to spawn with no luck. I run up and down the ramp, I run around on either side of the ramp, I run and run and run. No luck.

The only thing I have been able to spawn is the Death Squad and that has only been when running on the outside of the ramp, never when I have been on the ramp.

Can anyone who has completed the 4th part please advise me where they found Tanik when he spawned or what they did to get him to spawn.

I am tearing my hair out! :(

Kal, Tanik spawns down close to where the giants are lurking behind the posts just outside the doorway to the fortress. You're far down on the ramp, not at all near the middle or top. I was able to find him twice right away while doing this quest for myself and a friend. Each time Tanik spawned immediately as I approached the entrance a little to the right of the doorway, as if to walk up to that support post...try pacing around that area, just be careful not to agro the giants. Hope this helps!

When you refer to the location at which you found him spawning, are you talking about him spawning low down on the ramp near the guards or on that flat area between the guards and Kael Drakkel?


RE: Need help finding Tanik
# May 17 2001 at 4:25 PM Rating: Default
I mean at the base of the ramp in front of the guards, not in closer to the zone. This is where we found him the two times, he popped for us right away as soon as I stepped there. But, from what other people say, he might also show up in other areas.... *shrugs*
Part 5 - Thread? Insane.
# May 14 2001 at 2:46 PM Rating: Decent
Collecting 75 threads (assuming you don't have any failures) for this quest seems unreasonably difficult and time consuming. The drop rate is just too low. Getting tailoring up to master level is difficult enough. There must be an alternative approach to dealing with the thread. Using Crystalline Silk, I've tried every combination I could think of to produce the thread. No luck. I'm guessing someone will find the right combination, though. Maybe VI just decided it was time for some harsh sadism on Part 5. Either way... Imagine what part 6 will be like. ;) It's turning into the epic shawl quest.

Fifth part of quest is now implemented (at least, some of it).

You say, 'How may I advance my reputation further?'
Loremaster Borannin says, 'Carlo! Thank Brell you're here. I was about to send one of my Lorekeepers looking for you. It appears the information Tanik acquired is most perilous indeed. The Dain has called an emergency session of the council and I must attend. We don't have the luxury of waiting for an appropriate task to arise, you must advance as soon as possible. Unfortunatelym I have neither the time, not the components to fashion the next few shawls for you. Ask Rexx Frostweaver about the prayer shawl and follow his direction carefully.'

Rexx Frostweaver is one of the vendors in the bank.

You say, 'What about the prayer shawl?'
Rexx Frostweaver says, 'Gather five strands of crystalline silk thread and combine them in a sewing kit to make a crystalline silk fiber. Take this container and combine a glowing shardwurm bile with three of the fibers to form a piece of glowing crystalline silk. Five pieces of glowing crystalline silk sewn to your fur-lined shawl will yield a beautiful silk shawl. Become a master in the art of tailoring before risking all you've worked for and be sure to let me inspect your work when it is complete.'

That's as far as I've got so far - from the message boards on EQ Traders, the thread are fairly rare drops off spiders in VL, the bile has been seen on guardian wurms in GD. 75 threads at about 1 an hour, could take a looong time on this one :).

i hear that the bile drops of the shardwurms in GD and from what i heard last night it drops like crazy...

for the crystalline threads not sure if they are like the silk ones but the same guy that told me the shardwurm bile was droping like crazy said that you could get them in Vek of the spiders there...

I'am sorry but the bile is an insane rare drop !
On my second atempt to get some, i've pulled almost all wanderers in the cave + guardians (i didn't pulled the ones close to crystaline), no bile droped in a whole night of camping, duh !

I hunted shardwurms again (they con green now, sigh) and get some glowing worm bile. I assume it is used for the quest, and it is definatly not a common drop, i got 2 in 4H !

If it is like silk Threads, Crystalline Threads are made by combining 2 crystaline spiderling silks (not sure of that, it may drop of crystaline spiderling) in a sewing kit (i didn't test that)
RE: 5th Part Is In!!!
# May 14 2001 at 2:37 PM Rating: Excellent
I dont think its supposed to be like the silk threads since they are called Crystalline fibers. According to the NPC you are supposed to combine 5 crystalline silks in a sewing kit, not 2.
RE: 5th Part Is In!!!
# May 10 2001 at 9:07 PM Rating: Good
Unfortunately, combining 2 crystalline spider silks produces a crystalline silk swatch used in Velious tailoring. Also, I have now heard, as well, that the cystalline silk threads are dropped off of the spiders in Velk's, tough buggers too.

I'm guessing that they've also added additional drops from the various crystal spiders located in the Thurgadin Mines and the Crystal Canverns. I'm assuming that goes for the shardworm (and they did misspell it, unless a new creature altogether) bile, as well.

tanik is a forced spawn. he will pop when you run over him then he will depop leaving you with some nasty death squat giants.

just zone into kael and wait a while then zone back out to the entrance to the kael fort (where the guards are) and he will repop again. better hurry on giving him the potion cause those giants run really fast.

# Apr 16 2001 at 6:00 PM Rating: Good
Ok found 2 spots that can definately spawn him, -5800, 2720 and -6285, 4400.

The spawns can either be deathsquads or Tanik, and they only spawn during the day. They respawn roughly 10-15 minutes after either the giants or Tanik despawn.

Actually, got the death squads to spawn at night.

Tanik also drops a head, btw.
