About this quest
# Aug 28 2003 at 4:11 PM Rating: Decent
When I did this quest today with an erudite paladin, there weren't any faction hits for killing the poacher in Tox Forest (poacher, by the way, was a rare spawn that wanders by the kobold camp just south of the river in Tox, along with mid-level snakes, fire beetles, and spiders, as well as low level ones).

However, the faction hits for turning in the head to Jras was + Peacekeepers, + High Council of Erudin, - Heretics.

In my case, the reward for the quest was a tarnished weapon.

I would guess that if you killed poachers in Surefall, then you would get the other faction hits mentioned.

I got the faction hits mentioned for killing a poacher in Toxx today.

Indifferent faction caused him to eat the head.
gnoll killing spree
# Jun 17 2003 at 12:12 AM Rating: Default
The gnoll killing spree... let's just say how many you will have to kill. For an iksar warrior, like myself, I am still dead KOS to surefall (except for the merchants and bard), and my faction is maxed with everyone dealing with gnolls. As far as I am concerned, the only way that I can raise faction with surefall is if I was a monk and used FD.

Ok now onto the numbers:
Iksar Warrior = 8,500 gnolls to reach max out faction.
Iksar Necro/SK = 10,000 gnolls to reach max out faction.
Iksar Other Classes = unknown at this time.

Dark Elves=unknown, but guessing around the 3,000-5,000 range.

Good Luck =)

Smiley: confused ok, i'm a new neckro running around in toxx. i killed a few poachers and the posts are saying that i should take to surefall glades to turn in? i am evil incarnate! wont i be KOS even for a good deed?
RE: poachers heads
# Jan 28 2003 at 11:04 AM Rating: Decent
yeah, I think you'll be KOS in surefall. The reason to go to surefall is 'cause you'll get more $ (don't know about exp.) I handed in a poacher's head in Erudin and got 7 cp and some exp for my trouble. Try raising your faction lvl with surefall before you pay them a visit. There are explanations of how to do that already posted, so I won't repeat. Good Luck.

i know this is goin to be a little late but....

if you're a DE necro, then by all means - head into black burrow and go on a gnoll killing spree... but only if you don't plan on going back to neriak for anything.

Killing stuff in Blackburrow won't hurt faction in Neriak. Maybe you are thinking of Crushbone.

And how, pray tell, does one hand in stacks of anything? Last time I checked, you can't hand stacks of anything to any NPC.

Please think before you post.

To the other replier, usually if you can sneak, be invisible, or use an Essence of (insert race here) potion, you can be "indifferent" faction to whoever you turn things in to. Be ready to run if it drops of if they see invisible.

eh, that's a 3 year old post you're replying there slick--possibly, one could've turned in stacks at a time back in 2002, or, what's more likely, the poster got terms mixed up in their posting haste.

Naw, you were right the 1st time. It wasn't until a patch in the last 6 months to a year that prevented handing in stacks of items. Used to be that the fastest way to increase Chardok faction was to hand in stacks of Mt Death salts and green goblin skins, exactly as outlined above. (Same concept, used as a reference)

# Jan 26 2002 at 2:03 AM Rating: Default
OKAY! I'm a little freaked out here. I'm an enchanter and the minute I caste Pendril's Animation for the first time, I get these messages from people on the Circle of Unseen Hands saying I've been marked for death or something equivalent. Already the folks at Fish's aren't pleased with me but I chalk that up to my being an Erudite. If I venture into the Aqueducts, are these guys going to fillet me or something?
Alternative way to make this a GREAT quest
# Dec 28 2001 at 1:18 PM Rating: Default
This has been hinted at below, but here is what I discovered:

Forget Jras Solsier! The only way you will get faction raised high enough with him is to deliver messages between the Warren Prisons and Erudin (Yech!) several dozen times! By the time you are able to do that, this quest will be well below you level and a waste of time.

Instead, accumulate all the heads you can and take them to the Ranger in Surefall Glade (first guy inside the guild). He gives a couple of gold and alot of exp. Doing it this way changes this quest from disappointing to great.

Thanks for the hint! When I gave the heads to Jras, he gave me 8 COPPER!

Should an Erudite Enchanter go into Surefall?
RE: Surefall
# Jan 03 2003 at 4:07 PM Rating: Decent
First, yes enchanters can go into surefall no problem. The rangers don't care for you, but shouldn't kill you. Go into the house and you see two rangers in ringmail. Give the heads to him, you don't even have to hail him first. I have done this several times with my erudite enchanter.
RE: Surefall
# Jan 26 2002 at 2:08 AM Rating: Default
Careful, we enchanters may have the run of the place but High level monsters can see right through our disguises. I figured this out the hard way when I tried to sneak past an Ice boned skeleton in Everfrost. He saw me, said he hates Enchanters, hit me twice, and I spent a half an hour looking for my corpse.

Hand them in in Surefall

These poachers originally came from Surefall (so the story goes) and evidently the Surefall rangers want them dead too. Hand the heads in to the ranger guildmaster (the first man you see in the ranger building). Instead of the few cp you get in Erudin, you will receive a few gold pieces! And at level 4 and 5 you get a bubble of exp for each one you hand in!

Good Hunting!

You get the following faction for killing the poacher:

+CircleofUnseenHands, +GuardsofQeynos, +HighpassGuards, +KaranaResidents, -KaranaBandits

Turning in the head to Jras Solsier gives:

+PeaceKeepers, +HighCouncilofErudin, -Heretics, -Heretics

You need amiable faction for this (indifferent gets you nothing).
RE: Faction
# Nov 07 2001 at 7:10 AM Rating: Decent
Hmm... +CircleofUnseenHands? Interesting that even the Qeynos Rogues don't like the poachers. Might be nice way to get my faction back up with them since I've pretty well thrashed it from various 'good' quests around Qeynos and Surefall...

Now if only there was a way to get my Bloodsabre faction back up...
RE: Faction

I found that it is useless for Erudite Shadowknights to attempt to gain faction, exp or coin with this quest. The guy pretty much just sneers at you
RE: Faction
# May 04 2001 at 3:32 PM Rating: Good
You are a Shadowknight. You need to hand these into a paladin in Erudin or ranger in Surfall.. what were you expecting?? The paladins to throw their arms around you and say "GREAT JOB BUDDY",, or maybe a big wet kiss from the Rangers of surefall????

my human shadowknight (of bertoxxulous) is amiable to allied all over erudin except merchants (and working on that) and amiable to paladins/clerics of qeynos and rangers/druids of surefall glade. all this without lowering faction with her own guild. and for the neg hits to heretics? about 8 weeks in the warrens should fix that

8 weeks? It shouldn't take that long. My druid made it to amiable in less than 3 days (and it may have been less. I didn't /con anyone between the first time I passed through Paineel and third day).
