You say, 'Hail, Rowle Shieldson'

Tack Shieldson says 'Oi there, friend!

Rowle Shieldson says 'Sure'n this one came from Norrath, eh Tack? One wonders if'n a bottle o' one on o' the finer things in life might be in our future, if we were to ask politely?

Tack Shieldson says 'Yar, Rowle. So whadda ye say? We stand around drinkin' water on duty all day, and that ain't no life fer a dwarf. Now we bin hearin' bout all these new ales and suchnot comin' up from Norrath. Ye think ye might be so kind as to share a pint and raise our spirits?

You say, 'Sure, I be so kind to share a pint with you both.'

Rowle Shieldson says 'That'd be great! By Brell, a short beer or a honey mead'd be a nice change from?

Tack Shieldson says, 'Shhhhhh!!' He runs over and kicks Rowle in the kneecap and chuckles under his beard in your direction. Speaking under his breath to Rowle, 'Don' be such an idjit, now this lad came all the way from Norrath, why not try some of the fabled ales we'd heard our pappy's talkin' of?'

(Subtlety is not the strength of the dwarven race)

Rowle Shieldson catches on slowly, 'ahhh, roight! Good show, Tack! D'ye think 'e would go te that kinda trouble fer us?'

You say, 'What fabled ales you mean? Im an brewer and its no trouble for me )'

Rowle Shieldson clears his throat and flashes a broken-toothed grin your way, 'Ye know, me dwarven heart longs for me first taste o' some underfoot brown, a reputed fine stout not available 'ere on Luclin... Ye know, if ye can manage it that is.'

Tack Shieldson says 'Ahhh, worthy o' Brell hisself or so they say. Ye know when I was just a pup, back before the exodus, me uncle used te talk about stompin' trolls and then sitting back with a Boot Beer te celebrate the day's victory. I, ummm, really would be able te get in touch with me heritage were I able to sample some o' that fine stout. Ye'd be a true friend to the Validus Custodus fer helpin' us out friend. My thanks to ye in advance.

Tack Shieldson gingerly takes the boot from you, handling it as though it were a fine porcelain. With a look of thanks to you he slowly lifts it to his lips and suddenly tips it back to empty it in one gulp, frothing his beard in the process. 'Yar! That's the ticket! Damn fine stuff that is, just like me uncle always said. A service to the Validus Custodus have ye done, my friend... And I'd be happy to assist ye in that service again sometime. HAR!'

(and so he did, another 240 times...thirsty little Dwarf that he was).

Reward is experience and faction. For instance a hand-in of 550 might take one from "just scowling" through threatening and into dubious with Magus. But be warned: you will slip an equivalent amount with Nathyn. ie. from aimiable down to dubious.

Helps with citzines and guards
Why get faction with Katta?
# Feb 15 2004 at 3:17 PM Rating: Decent
What is the advantage of increasing your faction here? I make a lot of the Kaladim Constitutional, and since the underfoot mushrooms are more numerous, i often have several stacks extra. Is it worth doing these brews to gain faction?

The advantage of having good factions in Katta, is that it makes a nice base of operations for those working that part of Luclin. There are plenty of merchants and guild trainers and trade containers there. You can access Twilight Sea from there, too. Everytime I see people hunting guards there, I have to laugh because they are letting a valuable resource go to waste for a few levels of xp.
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?
how much?

What kind of xp are we talking about here?

The main area for ground spawns is in North Kaladim at loc +640, -129. They are the blue ones, the red ones are the strange dark fungus.
# Dec 25 2002 at 6:02 AM Rating: Decent
The room they are in is to the right if zoning from Twilight. It's the room with the pool of water in it, loc -200, -1560.

How Many?

I've given 4 stacks - 80 bottles - of the underfoot stout to Rowle Shieldson, but my faction has not budged, still at dubious. How many do i have to give to get to this guy?
RE: How Many?
# May 11 2002 at 2:44 PM Rating: Default
Well, I dont remember which it is Apprenhsive or Dubious, but one of them is a double faction level (200 point wide instead of the normal 100). In either case, if each bottle equals one faction hit (almost certainly), you'd still be 20-120 hits from a improvement.
RE: How Many?
# Jan 31 2002 at 12:17 PM Rating: Default
I'm not sure, but I think you get better faction if you give it away a bottle at a time, instead of in stacks.

It really depends on the quest. Sounds like you're getting only +1 to Validus Custodus for each hit. That's like killing one coterie lego out in Tenebrous. The hits are small. I think to go from Dubious to Apprehensive, I had to quad about 200 legos.
After 6 AA points of quading legos, I'm now max ally to nathyn Illuminous and VC. I think it was around 600 legos plus alot of blood, ash, and fangs being turned in.

It's like getting faction in Cabilis. You can, it just takes killing a couple hundred sarnak/goblins, and then turning in THOUSANDS of bone chips to get the faction needed.

Beware Faction Hits....
# Dec 22 2001 at 5:19 PM Rating: Good
This quest is great to raise your faction with Katta, but beware the faction hit with Nathyn Illumnious. His house is located within Katta itself, and the legionnares and guard wolves outside will attack on sight if your Nathyn Illumnious faction drops too low.
RE: Beware Faction Hits....

Heed this warning! but there is a stone fence around his home and the guards are not close to it. if you don't wander into his yard you should be ok. Learn where he lives before being KOS to him.

Rowle wants Underfoot Brown Beer, Tack wants Boot Beer. Both recipes are available on I gave them one at a time and got faction/experience on each. Factions are:

Validus Custodus got better
Katta Castellum Citizens got better
Magus Conlegium got better
Nathyn Illumnious got worse
Coterie of the Eternal Night got worse
Seru got worse
Hand of Seru got worse
Eye of Seru got worse
Hand Legionnaries got worse

If I read the quest right...he wants Underfoot Brown Brewed for him.
Recipe from EQtraders
Underfoot Brown
4 underfoot mushroom
(ground spawn in North Kaladim)
(look for blue mushrooms in the area next to Greybloom Farms)
1 flask water
1 malt
1 short beer

Also returns an empty bottle on success, as well as the brew( 1 Cask ).
Trivial at 168

Anyone have more specific details?
