Drenic Garrison may be found on the upper level on a narrow walkway, at +280, +35.

You say, 'Hail, Drenic Garrison'

Drenic Garrison says 'Greetings! I am Drenic Garrison, Governor of Science here in Katta Castellum. I am currently involved in several scientific endeavors with the other governors and am in need of assistance supplying my researchers with the proper [materials and samples] for their studies.'

You say, 'What materials and samples?'

Drenic Garrison says 'The Magus Conlegium are assisting with some studies on the physiology of the Vampyres of the Coterie of the Eternal Night and are in need of [ash and blood] samples. Maralicis Dilsm our Governor of Health is assisting in research on [counteragents] to the venom and diseases native to Luclin. Finally, there have been reports from the agents of Erikal Wolfeye that there is a civilization of [snake people] that live on the furthest reaches of the light side of Luclin in a region devoid of atmosphere.'

You say, 'What snake people?'

Drenic Garrison says 'To the west beyond the Twilight Sea is an airless grey region between the light and dark sides of Luclin. Some time ago our scouts cooperating with powerful members of the Magus Conlegium attempted to chart the expanses of the barren treacherous region. During this excursion the scouts and magi encountered a small group of strange snake like men. The magi detected no magical aid that was allowing the creatures to move freely in the airless void without danger of suffocation. When approached the snake men quickly fled. We wish to know how these creatures survive in such conditions. If they prove to be a hostile species then we will have to resort to examining their [anatomy].'

You say, 'What anatomy?'

Drenic Garrison says 'I wish to examine the lungs or whatever breathing organs these creature have. It would not be prudent to hunt and kill a living member of this species and society we know practically nothing about but there are several undead snake men in the region as well. I will require three such organs however to perform the proper experiments.'

Shissar Organs are dropped by various shissar in Echo Caverns and The Grey. Bring back three for your reward.

Drenic Garrison says 'Excellent work ____! The acquisition of these organs is a fantastic accomplishment!'

You receive Amulet of the Grey Wastes

1. Zone in from Twilight Sea. Evil races shroud or use invis. Both work fine.
2. Once zoned in take the tunnel to the left.
3. As soon as you come out of the entry, drop off the left side of the walkway
4. There is a plaque on the wall in the water. Swim down and click on it
5. You will appear near the steps. Take the steps up to the next level.
6. At the top of the steps go left.
7. You will see a large hedge. Turn left and follow it to an entry.
8. Enter the hedged area and walk straight into the building
9. Take the corridor to the right.
10. Before the corridor makes a turn you want the last room on the right.
11. He will be standing inside waiting for you.

I did not have to unhide or unsneak to do the turnin while shrouded.

How to fix the faction here?

anybody knows how to fix my faction here?
being an cutie Ogre BST, my faction is dubiously and have hunted in Tene Mts castle for quite a while. I am still dubiously.
I cant even trade with the merchants in Katta.
This makes me upset... :(

Get yourself an "essence of" potion for a good race. Drink it once you're in Katta Castellum, and you should be good to go.

My Dark Elf was KoS here and ready for the turn-in to get his Amulet of the Grey Wastes.

I tried Essence of Human but he was still KoS.

But I shrouded to a Rogue and Invised right up to him and did my turn in.

I just got killed leaving, prolly cause of no invis.

A friend and I entered from the Twilight Sea side and succored to the top of the zone so my trip would be shorter.

Did this at 50

He is a PAIN to find!!!

Go behind the bank you will see some stairs climb these and follow the ledge. In the big hall find the LOC 292.95, 30.73, 3.13

Each single hand in he informs you that you need 3 organs (thought I would be /petition the GM after it).

Hand in got the Necklace

Just picked up my third set of organs off of the Taskmaster in Echo Caverns at level 40, and ran all the way to K.C. for the turn in. As a Wood Elf/Tunare, I had no problem walking in. Drenic took the turn in without so much as the bat of an eye.

Very nice EB item for the broke player, and easy to do, since Echo is a good place to pick up exp at that level anyway.

Drenic is located at +289, +26, +3.75


The earliest that this quest can be done is 35. Yes, it is MQable, but the final turn in must be done by someone level 35 or above.

My DE necro didn't have sneak. I tried invis and hide, but that didn't work. What did work was I invised and my chanter friend mezzed. I gave the three organs and got my reward without a prob. And of course the druid to succor.
IKS MNK did it
# Jun 08 2005 at 9:05 AM Rating: Decent
Helped a iksar monk do this. She was KoS so we invised her to quest giver. She stood behind him, sneaked, turned in organs and got her EB neck. I thought I would have to re-invis her after she opened the give window, but there was no need. Good Luck!
Howto get a Dark Elf the Amulet

Dark Elf Cleric Inni Deity: tried to run in there without preperations - got attacked soon.Than i used some Human Essence Potion (Illusion Human) and everyone started to look at me Warmly i runned in without Problems only to get attacked by some Halfling Caster before the Castle in the Strange Garden.So i invised as Human and got to Drenic - Turned in the Organs and he did not want them.i dropped Illusion and everything even Drenic attacked:) Well so i got to Marus Seru and started to kill Hands of Seru at the Sanctus Seru Zone and Hands as well as other Guards i think legionnaires at the Zone to Netherbian as well the Guards inside Netherbian (but only the Guards by Marus Seru Zone not the Haven Guards,they are on Different Faction)after like 25 Full Kills (around 300 Guards total) i got back to Katta got Illusion Human up invised up to avoid the stupid Halfling and runned in to Drenic,there i dropped invis and handed in Organs without Problems(he conned threateningly) and got the Amulet:) The Organs dropped in the Grey from Sissar Stalkers.Drenic is easy to find : go to Tenebrous Zoneline and from there straightout :outcomming of the Tower with the Zoneline to your right is an open Area with 1 Building,the next to your right is a Big Castle with a Strange Garden before it,its Surrounded with a Kind of Wall.Take the opening in the Wall to enter the Garden (you will face the Castle on entering).Enter the Castle and take inside the first to the right (don't go up the Steps)than go to the last Room on the right,there you find Drenic:)Good Luck:) I guess that will work for most evil Races

Had the organs sitting in the bank for a while, courtesy of the Taskmaster in Echo Caverns.

Armed with cloudy and gate potions, got a druid to port me to Twilight, ran/swam east to Katta. Picked up a few mobs on the way, but zoned before any real damage done. Sat on zone line for health to hit 100, then invised up and ran to Drenic.

Still invised, I stood behind him and hit sneak. No hailing, I just handed him the 3 organs, hit trade and got the amulet.

It got interesting at this point. I obviously had dropped invis, so ran back into the corridor and attempted to feign away from his and others spawn points. First feign failed as he hit me with a nuke (about 650) so hit Stonestance whilst he, a guard and a gnome from the opposite room was beating on me.

Using mend (he hit me with another couple of nukes) I had to time the second feign after the last nuke hit. This one was successful, (good job, I was at 15%) and I lay there until they had wandered back and forgotten me. Once the guard had gone off on his patrol, I stood and gated.

Nice item, and now I can sell my Ornately Runed Shell Necklace.

Drenic Garrison says 'I am sorry _____, but I have no tasks that you may assist in at this time. Come back at a later time and perhaps you can be of some assistance.'

I have done this quest on another char at like 49 or so but 34 is too low.

what I should have done was ask him "What snake people?" if your high enuff you get "To the west...

if your not then you get the "I am sorry ___ .....

Just yesterday I was in Echo Cavers with my 47 berserker and killed the taskmaster and the Organ dropped.
had 2 organs in the bank with my main, so I MQ it and go the organ. I never bothered to hail the NPC in Katta, just handed in the organ.

Wife and I (55 Shaman/Warrior) camped the entrance from Mons Letalis last night for the duration of her KEI (about 3 1/2 hours) and had 3 drop in that time. We weren't doing the zone for the organs as we both already have the EB items we want right now (Fishbone Earring for me and Lodi Shield for her) but I will do the quest just to do it.

We fought the Timless Golems mostly as they were more plentiful, but did kill roughly 15-20 Shissar Stalkers to come up with those 3 organs. Heading to do the quest now to get the 2 spaces back and it will be nice to have a backup EB item in the bank in case of deaths.

# Mar 01 2004 at 12:25 PM Rating: Decent
Aye camped the entrance last night for about 30 min picked up 2

#REDACTED, Posted: Feb 23 2004 at 4:46 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) CAN ANY1 VERIFY THAT THE UNDEAD SNAKE ORGANS DROP OFTEN.. CAMPED 4 6 HRS NON DROPED....
Can be MQed
# Dec 09 2003 at 3:16 AM Rating: Excellent
You can MQ..Me and a friend did the other night she handed in 1 shissar organ and i handed in 2 shissar organs and boom Amulet of the Grey Wastes was mine. decent stats for a EB item. FYI TM rarely drops the shissar organs so id recommend camping the shissar stalkers in The Grey its decent xp and alot more chances of a drop
Minimum level
# Dec 08 2003 at 7:51 AM Rating: Decent
It says minimum level 55. I just finished this quest at 49 solo just kill the Taskmaster in echo drops organs about every 3 kills. 10 total kills for me to get 3 was easy.
Turning in one doesn't work
# Dec 04 2003 at 7:03 AM Rating: Decent
I just tried to turn in one organ like Vexis said and it didn't work. Probably need all three.
Only need ONE organ
# Dec 01 2003 at 12:15 PM Rating: Decent
I did this quest last night by quad kiting lizards in The Grey and I got one organ. I went over to the guy to turn it in and I only gave him ONE organ and he gave me the necklace.

You got lucky. Someone else had already turned in two of the needed organs.

On quests like this I always hand in my items one at a time, just in case some other player had already turned some of the items in. If so, I'll have spares to help someone else multiquest for their reward.

someone might have turned in 2 already. (like in kaladim, if someone has already turned in one CB pad, if you turn in just one, you will get the reward as if you had turned in 2) *shrug*

# Nov 24 2003 at 4:42 AM Rating: Good
the best way to get organs, i've found, is to kill the taskmaster in echo caverns...he drops them prolly 1 in 2 or 1 in 3 and he doesn't wander....also drops nice cash loots (between him and the skellies) just DONT kill all his skeletons and kill him...that will spawn a high 50's chanter mob...but each skeleton drops a lore pickaxe that sells to vendors in the zone for almost 10pp each...TM can drop a whip that sells for 50pp...i made lots of cash there on my necro at 50...and like i said he drops the organs fairly frequently.
RE: organ farming
# Aug 30 2004 at 12:26 PM Rating: Decent
I just killed him and all his skellies today, and no other mob popped. Not sure what you mean, or if there is a certain order in which the kills must be done to pop this mob that you are talking about.
# Nov 23 2003 at 12:58 PM Rating: Decent
Sounds like you both clicked the trade window. Only the person to receive the item is to click the trade window

I dont understand this... surely one person just hands in 2 organs (AND TRADES) then the next person hands in one organ and gets the necklace yeah?

What's all this stuff about only 1 person clicking trade???
RE: MQable?
# Dec 10 2003 at 3:01 AM Rating: Decent
They hand in whatever they have and click trade. Then the npc says something about without everything, all will be lost forever (or something to that effect). Now you have approx 30 minutes to turn in whatever else is needed. Whoever turns in the final quest item will get the reward. This is very simple to do, some posts make it sound alot more complicated than it is. If you are still unsure go do a gnoll teeth or redwine quest and don't hand everything in at the same time. Break it up into chunks so you can see how the NPC will react. Have fun, enjoy your prize. Everyone should have an EB item.

I got my Organs from the random Shissar Stalkers at The Grey zonein, light and dark blue to 60. The common ones right by zonein are the ones you want.

Unfortunately, I'm a Cazic SK. I might have to get illusion: halfling or something, even then I don't know that it will work. Slaughtering the legos in Netherbian and Marus Seru is probably my best bet at this point.

Of course, I could just save up my raid points and win a Koi`Doken bracer or something too.

After killing many Shissars (and their friends) near the zone in I had one organ. This was taking too long. My partner and I invised up and went to the temple area.

The temple area was much better for us. There are more Shissar Revenants to kill, in static spawn spots. They also re-pop at a good pace. The only other mob we had to keep clear was a single Golum at the temple wall. No wanderers entered the area. You can kill on all four sides of the pyramid, but we just parked on one side. It gave us just the right amount of med time between spawn rounds hunting this way.

If you don't have some form of crowd control you'll often have to fight two at a time. This was not really a problem for us in our mid 50s (bst & mag.)

Bah, can't edit my post.

I meant to say there are more Shissars to kill near the temple. I can't remember if we got the organs from the revenants or stalkers. We just killed them all.
