Commander Leuz is located in Skyshrine not far from the Wakening Land entrance.

You say, 'Hail, Commander Leuz'

Commander Leuz says 'Welcome to Skyshrine. I have noticed a great deal more of your people joining the ranks of the shrine, hoping to assist in pushing back the giants for good. I am here as the commander of the militia set forth by Lord Yelinak himself. With that in mind, it is my duty to assign certain tasks to those who are willing to show their support to the kin, and to the shrine.'

You say, 'What task?'

Commander Leuz says 'Well, for instance, we have recently acquired information from one of our scouts in the wastelands to the west that there have been storm giants wandering the coastal area nearby. We have not heard from this scout in some time however, and we are beginning to worry about their status. Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to deliver some tools to the scout so that they can communicate back to us with their status, and the status of those giants.'

You say, 'I will accept.'

Commander Leuz says 'Good. Please take these tools with haste to the western wastelands and find the scout. Strength be with you, and with the kin.'

The Commander will hand you Scout Tools.

In the Western Wastes you can find Scout Charisa who stands on a hill just south of the Siren's Grotto zone. Hand her the Scout Tools.

Scout Charisa says 'Great! I was wondering when they would send someone out to give me these. In my haste and excitement of this new assignment I forgot these. This scout business is great I must say. It sure beats setting in Southern Ro studying the ruins. I've been following these Storm Giants for days. They've been wandering up and down the coast looking for something.'

Your faction standing with Claws of Veeshan got better.
Your faction standing with Yelinak got better. +2
Your faction standing with Kromzek got worse.
You gain experience!!

This will spawn 8 giants near the shoreline just south of the Scout. Seven Kromzek Warriors and one Kromzek Captain. You can harmony the seven warriors so that the Captain can be single pulled. Kill him and loot the Broken Disk.

Give the disk to Scout Charisa.

Your faction standing with Claws of Veeshan got better.
Your faction standing with Yelinak got better. +6
Your faction standing with Kromzek got worse.

She'll give you the Scout Report and a Robe of Benevolence (NEC WIZ MAG ENC). If you give Scout Charisa the Robe back, you will get a Bracer of Benevolence (WAR PAL RNG SHD MNK BRD ROG BST BER). If you turn the Bracer in, you will get a Talisman of Benevolence (CLR DRU SHM).

The Scout Report that you received can be returned to Commander Leuz in Skyshrine for Faction and Experience.

Your faction standing with Claws of Veeshan got better.
Your faction standing with Yelinak got better. +5
Your faction standing with Kromzek got worse.

Commander Leuz says 'Well this artifact will definitely need study. Thank you for this report. Perhaps after we have researched this object more we will have more for you to search for.'

Duod on Aradune with average kunark gear.

Duoed with an average geared monk and shaman box. Don't waste mana on anyhting but heals and torpor, fully buff the monk. Pox was resisted even so i just healed through it. Took about 10 minutes and i used all of the monks discs and potions on cooldown. Cannibalized the entire time to keep up with mana on shaman with c2 and greater conc. Single pull was easy, i just chucked a jav at the captain and none of the others aggroed.

This was in the first 2 weeks of Velious on Aradune.

I can confirm that on Live, you DO need warmly faction with Cmmdr Leuz to get the scout tools. However, I was able to sneak behind Scout Charisa and turn in the tools under indifferent faction. Scout Charisa and the Kromzek Captain become loot locked upon turn in of the scout tools as indicated by an asterisk next to their names i.e. *Scout Charisa. On P99, you do not seem to need warmly faction with Leuz, only amiable afaik. Also the quest dialogue is different to get the scout tools on Live vs. P99. I have a video guide on Youtube at Ion Blaze channel.

Handing in scout tools got 2 faction, handing in the disk got 6, and then handing in the report got 5 more for a total of 13 Yelinak faction. I'm Max Ally COV and worst possible Kromzek so I couldn't see how much of those you get. Not very effective I guess, but I had the tools in my inventory for who knows how long so I ran through it.

Thanks, every little bit helps! Updated.

If anyone wants to run this quest and get full logs (need dialogues checked, required faction(s), /loc, missing factions, etc.) that would be appreciated.

I did this quest for the wristband for a lowbie monk alt friend of mine.

As far as pulling the Captain...all I did was aggro and run. The Captain outpaced the rest of the giants. I got far enough and all I had left was the Captain. Cheers!
Can do this quest at Warmly

did it today and I am warmly to CoV.
Here's how to do it...
# Jun 11 2004 at 8:07 AM Rating: Excellent
Pretty nice item considering I got it solo yesterday...

If you are a 65 Druid (Or high level with good gear) or you know a 65 Druid, there is no reason you can't obtain this item...

I spent some time in PoK gettin' some good buffs...Focus...Symbol...STA buffs...In retrospect, I really didn't need any of these at all...

The only thing you want to make sure you have is KEI/VOQ, a quick cast ring from a Mage, an extender mantle from a Mage, a mod rod from a Mage and a set or two of pet toys from a Mage. I did this with KEI, FT 3 and no rod and I ended the fight with about 7 mana left...

Here's what I did:

I scouted the zone for "a brontosomethingratheranother". It's the rhino lookin' mob. Find one that is light blue and DC is boo-tay. I ran into 3 that "were too high to be charm'd"...But I persisted and found a DC pet.

Give him the toys and then parked him near the SG zone in. Not necessarily near the tunnel, I parked him over to the right more to avoid adds...To explain, if you journey up the tunnel from SG and your facing the exit towar the end, I turn'd right, went up the hill and over to the flat area. I stay'd there for a bit and didn't see any mobs wander through that area except one woofie...But he's easily handled.

So, I got my DC pet parked there. I buff'd him up with STR, Natureskin and SoE. I saved Haste for when the fight actually started.

I turn'd in my quest item to pop the giants. Ran over and HoN'd them all except the Captain. Once they were HoN'd, I then cast snare on the Cap and he came a flyin'!

(Note: When I finally agro'd the Captain, it looked like all the giants agro'd, but I found that it was only the Captain that followed.)

I ran back toward my pet and when the Captain was near I sent him in...And so it began!

At the start of the fight I tossed a haste on my pet, hence the extender mantle from a Mage and I cast Hand of Ro on the Cap (Reduces FR, AC and ATK).

I was CH'ing the rhino when he hit 50% health and then I would quickly sit bad down and keep medin'. Rinse and repeat. The Captain fell while my pet was still at about 40% health and I was at 7% mana. Hooray for my new Talismen of Benevolence!

I'm gonna' be gettin' tis item, as well as the robe and the bracer for as many folks as I can, now that I have this down to an exact science. Was probably one of the most fun things I've ever done solo!

If you have any questions about what I did, you can post a question on the Karana Server Message Board which can be found at KSMB. I'm the administrator and I'll see your post on there...

GL everyone on this quest!!!

I gave this quest a shot solo with my 64 druid. I could have done it except for 3 factors:

1. Either its unsnareable, or I just couldn't land a snare. I tried 4 times and it resisted everytime.

2. Good ole bug we got going where mobs POP behind you when kiteing. One second he is too far away to land a dot on, then BAM he pops behind me and starts attacking. No he did not summon me, its the bug we got where a mob pops near you when going up or down a slope.

3. Runs with SOW speed. I was able to barely outrun him with SOE on.

I landed immolation of ro on him. It worked its way through and he only went down to 97% health, so he has a ton of hp for a level 58. And for the records Harmony worked fine on the warriors, I was able to single pull him.

If SOE would fix there bugs I could have taken him, would have been a slow painful process but I could have done it. Really sick of trying to kite stuff and it poping behind me and doublehitting me, then of course it bashes and stuns you and gets another round of hits on you.

u now have to be ally to do the this quest now

According to what I read from this quest you get the item you want from the scout. Do you get anything for handing the report in?

I 2 boxed this yesterday ... 57 Monk, 65 Druid. Monk has no aa's but I goy myself raid buffed in POK before I headed to WW. Single pulled iwth Harmony and fought him right near charisa. Was a nice long fight and I had about 10m when he died. Monk raid buffed was at around 4.6k hp. I had tried to slow him bfore with my chanter and had no luck so I just decided not to bring him this time. Fight was pretty tough but I pulled it off . Druid was on a horse and had p9 and voq.

According to the description of the quest by alla, you get faction just by hailing in SS, getting the tools and turning them in. Cant u just do this all day to make your faction higher? Assuming your warmly, and you are too low level to kill for faction on ur own, and no one will help u?
RE: Question
# Oct 10 2003 at 3:21 PM Rating: Default
No this is not true
you need to either do quests or kill giants etc to gain CoV faction
RE: Question
# Dec 04 2003 at 8:02 PM Rating: Default
you get faction for turning in the tools, but the scout isn't up often enough to do this much.

I did this fight yesterday (September 7, 2003), and here's how it went.

At 58, I had no problem single-pulling the captain by proximity aggro. He came by himself and never summoned the other giants. This is quite different from the other recent reports of this fight, so I thought I'd post it here.

Unfortunatly, we failed - when the captain was at about half-health, Scout Charisa added (apparently the tank was KOS to CoV and somebody pulled her to where we were fighting). To make a long story short, Scout Charisa is very mean - she hits for about 100, is unmezzable, unstunnable and immune to changes in run speed, and she summons. Even worse, she is an enchanter, so she charms your group members, hastes them and uses them to kill you. Although she is lower level than the captain, she is much tougher.

Even with all that, the captain was at 4% health when we wiped (we had one 65 Paladin, one 65 Shaman, one 65 Druid and one 58 Druid). If we would have had just a little bit more healing power or another tank to tank-mez Charisa we would have succeeded.

EDIT: Although he is very magic resistant, the fire-based lines of Druid DoT/debuff landed on him just fine, and Scoriae hit for full the several times I casted it, and there was no need to be in melee range.

don't need ally
# Aug 16 2003 at 3:05 AM Rating: Default
You may need high warmly, but I JUST got the tools from Leuz at Warmly. Have done it before at just amiably, but that may have been before a patch change. Its now 8/16/03.
RE: don't need ally
# Aug 17 2003 at 5:17 AM Rating: Decent
Aye, it must have been changed to warmly or high warmly because I tried at kindly and he wouldnt give me the quest. Didnt go back till ally so not sure about all of warmly.
RE: don't need ally

Very High kindly, I was 1 or 2 kills from warmly (got too warmly from killing a warrior and the commander for my new bracer)
little info..
# Aug 13 2003 at 3:23 PM Rating: Decent
Did this today with my 65 monk/65 druid. When captain is aggroed he does indeed summon all the other giants right on top of him but only this one time. If he loses aggro (ie pull FD) and is reaggroed he will summon giants again. Only summons once when first aggroed.
However, he still comes single if you're puller is level 65. I pulled him, he summoned all the giants on top of him but only captain preceeded to run after me while the other giants stood there foolishly. Still an easy fight if you can get a level 65 puller.

Apparently SoE changed this encounter as of the aug 6th patch.

Warriors can no longer be harmonied it says they are IMMUNE to it. And then when we tried using higher level spells to do it seemed to work, but then when we tagged Capt and he summoned all the other giants on top of himself and they all started chasing.

Now I have done this quest at least 30 times in the past and I know how to do it the old way and it is definatly changed now.

I then preceded to FD the giants in small groups around the front of the zone. This was pretty easy to do. But then when I had them all FDd off and I went back to tag Capt that was all alone he again summoned everyone of the giants on top of him again and here we go on more time.

Now I had the giants all across the front of the zone spread out from FDing. I mean from the front of tunnle all way to DN and he still sumoned every giant to his aid. they did not run to help him, they all where summoned on top of him and then the chase is on again.

Before I thought the Capt was faster then all the other giants too, but not anymore, they all run at same speed exactly.

I am sure its still easy to do. All you have to do now is have someone train the mess to DN and another to tag capt out of heard and take it to SG tunnle for killing and then the trainer zone into DN and gate back to fight. That should work as long as capt does not summon them again while he's dying.

I failed on first atempt cause they all depoped while I was messing around FDing them so I will have to try the train thing next time and will let ya know how that went.

Don't you love it when SoE changes a old quest just to **** with you :)

Did this three times in last 2 days and 65 Druid can pull without using Harmony. Just pull at max spell distance. Duo'ed this easily with 65 War and myself.

Talisman of Benevolence
# Jun 27 2003 at 5:40 PM Rating: Default
Ok I have read this and was wondering if anyone has tried to get the Talisman of Benevolence recently. I see that 1 person has had trouble getting it and was wondering if anyone else has.
RE: Talisman of Benevolence

I've done this fight about 6 times in the past week. Twice was for Talisman. None of them had any difficulties.

The Big Fight
# Jun 06 2003 at 1:57 PM Rating: Default
- 65 Paladin
- 65 druid
- 65 Monk
- 65 Cleric
- 65 Enchanter

First time just the druid and paladin fought him. Second time with the above 4 we won easily. We could not win the first time and evaced out. We went and got a enchanter real fast but by the time we returned (about 10 minutes) he had despawned. Second time we had a 65 enchanter and he was not able to slow him, I saw a post somewheres that only disease based slows work on him.

Question want to clear...

Can someone confirm with recent patch, " Do we need ally to hand in disk to get reward? " Thx for help.
This Quest is Broken!
# May 29 2003 at 12:33 AM Rating: Decent
I killed the captain and obtained his item. Returned it to Scout charisa for the report, then after I turned the report in I got the Robe of Benevolence. If you read Eristotle's post on this quest you'll see the steps for the talisman. Anyway, once i turned in robe, he ate it so I petitioned. Once a GM responded he told me he was sorry and gave me bracer (which I should already have) anyway I did turn in with bracer (which should've yielded talisman) and it again ate the item. Petitioned yet again, took 5+ hours, GM told me that he'd gimme both robe and bracer back but would //\\>>NOT<<//\\ Give me the damned Talisman! Could some one offer any advice? I'm extremely pissed!
RE: This Quest is Broken!
# Jul 20 2003 at 5:32 AM Rating: Decent
Are you giving the robe/bracer to Leuz? If so, that's your problem. Give robe, then bracer back to Charisa.
