You say, 'Where is Vex Thal?'

remains of Vah Kerrath says 'The city of shadow is sealed by powerful magic. Only one that wears the talisman of Akelha Ra can pass through the seals on the gate. I have not been beyond the gates but rumors of dark prophets that possess great power have been heard throughout the ages.'

You say, 'What dark prophets?'

remains of Vah Kerrath says 'Only legends and rumors have circulated about the dark prophets in Vex Thal. I suspect that they are the reason for my eternally cursed state. If you could find someway to defeat the dark prophet leading those in Vex Thal and bring me back proof of the deed, I shall reward you with an ancient relic that I possess.'

You gain experience!!

Max DKP!

Members always end up paying max DKP for this!

Funny, how some guildies would start out bidding ridiculously low, like 10dkp (in our guild max bid was 150 and first bidder won in case of ties) and the bidding would creep up 5 or 10 at a time but invariably the winner paid 150. This was at the end of a loooooong VT raid (you haven't experienced a really long grinding raid until you've cleared all of VT, where every trash mob has so many HPs that they take a lot of time to kill even for a raid force) and everyone's tired and wanting to log.

Finally, bidders got smart and it started happening that the moment the officer opened up the bidding, there'd be a rush to bid 150 and get it over with.

This item is so superior at the time of Luclin that there's no better feeling than winning it. LOL. I remember a cleric friend of mine won it and was so psyched he wanted to run over to Umbral Plains and turn it in immediately. I wanted to log since it was past 1am. But he wasn't a very good traveler, as clerics often are not, and there are some dangers on the way to the turn-in mob, as well as SI mobs close to this quest mob. I figured if he went on his own, he'd end up being killed and I'd have to get up at 2am to recover his corpse for him. So I ported him and went along for the ride, constantly reminding him to go slow and watch out for trash mobs during the long run. He did get aggro after the turn-in but we evac'd away from danger and he landed one very happy cleric.

Good Times!

Big DKP item. Best in Slot for Bards for a long time. Helps out huge with Denon's Dirge & Fading Memories. https://youtu.be/NIs5HSC-83c
Apprehensive faction worked too
# Jul 20 2011 at 7:07 PM Rating: Decent
A level 55 alt with apprehensive faction handed in the item and got the neck. Atleast it's still useful for a level 55 Alt. :)


Quest update for 2010
# Dec 03 2010 at 12:03 PM Rating: Decent
This quest is still working as of December of 2010, I just got this very nice neck piece last night. Of course the items I have now (and which are easy to get at 85) are far superior to this it's still a very nice item. For anybody who was actually level 55 to 65 it's most likely still the best thing you can get. I may end up de-leveling down to 1 in the future so I can have the fun of leveling up VERY twinked and overpowered. So I may yet get to experience this as a 55 mage.

Anyways, interesting note here... I have had my VT key for like 8 years now and I had warmly faction with the remains NPC (probably from soloing in Ankheva for so long) but it was interesting that I could not get the Remains to reply with any of the canned responses. No matter what I said all I got in response was a comment saying "it won't be that easy" and asking me to do the 4 skulls quest. So I grew a pair and just handed him the essence anyways and it worked!

Enjoy.

Turned in today as Dubious, Froglok, SK. No faction mods, no pots, walked up and turned in, got neck.
Apprehensive.
# Aug 23 2007 at 8:12 PM Rating: Decent
I grew a rather large pair ( well large for a gnome ) and attempted this turn in at apprehensive and BAM I got a shiny new neck for my twink mage. To hell with faction. =p

[Thu Aug 23 21:55:48 2007] remains of Vah Kerrath looks your way apprehensively -- You could probably win this fight.
[Thu Aug 23 21:55:49 2007] You are out of food and drink.
[Thu Aug 23 21:55:55 2007] You no longer have a target.
[Thu Aug 23 21:55:58 2007] You say, 'Hail, remains of Vah Kerrath'
[Thu Aug 23 21:55:59 2007] remains of Vah Kerrath says 'Fleshy mortal, can you not see that I am cursed to live in eternal anguish? What is it that you seek from me?'
[Thu Aug 23 21:56:25 2007] You say, 'where is vex thal'
[Thu Aug 23 21:56:25 2007] remains of Vah Kerrath says 'Begone from my sight corruptor of spirits. I will only aid my allies.'

[Thu Aug 23 21:59:16 2007] remains of Vah Kerrath says 'Benzpet, you have done more than was ever expected. Take this and my blessing will be with you always.'
[Thu Aug 23 21:59:16 2007] You gain experience!!

Missing time in log was me debating wither or not I wanted to risk the hand in. =)

Got mine
# Jul 31 2004 at 8:03 PM Rating: Decent
Okay for those of you still wondering if he is going to eat your turn in item if you do not get Ally faction I will set it straight.

I was warmly and he kept telling me I needed to turn in skulls. well I knew people that did this with indifferent faction and it was fine. So I turned mine in and got the Talisman no problem at all. And I did it today.

So do not worry about it.

quick question
# Jun 11 2004 at 12:15 AM Rating: Decent
just to make sure i understand this quest now, you need to obtain the key to VT through the scepter of shadows quest, kill Aten Ha Ra and loot the soul essence, take that back and turn it in for the talisman? or does it involve the metal links thing still, getting ready to do this quest myself, any help would be appreciated thanks

hey you guys, wanted to know if this effect will work on bards mana. no one ever stops to think about them as only ft will help them regen mana, my guild is gettin ready to roll through vt and was wondering if it is worth spending all my accrued raid points on the essence for this item, thanks

This is straight mana regeneration, so bards are affected by it (it's equivalent to the old Flowing Thought effects). Overall, a very nice item.
Broken?

I am aimably with him and he doesn't want give me the container.
He said: "I will not reveal the secrets i have discovered so easily. Since i am unamble to leave the protection of the Whisperling circle, I will need you to aid me in releasing the Elysian spirits form their tormented states. Destroy their remains and release their spirits form the grip of the shadow curse. Return four of their skulls to me as proof of your deeds. Only then i will impart my discoveries to you."

I killed elysians, looted 4 skulls, gave to him. He said: "You have done well. Clear your mind of all disctractions and ask the whisperlings if you are worthy of my knowledge."

After that i reasked the same lines for the medallion but he repeated the same thing. I've tried with each wolfes but it do nothing.

Maybe the faction was increased to do this quest?

People saying indifferent worked for them.

Also...it sounds like you asked the remains the same question when he told you to ask the whisperlings if you were worthy.

I know the whisperling in the pit of shar vhal is untargetable but you just say the proper phrase and you will get a response.

Sony decided to fix any confusion here and everything is now labeled mana regeneration. You can have 15 mana regeneration from items max. Now that everything is relabeled there should be no question.
RE: over FT15...YES

I have this, and quite simply no, no it does not stack past 15.

Here is a quicky for the quest to answer some questions that may come up. I know I had some hehe. After you get the Essence from AHR, you take it to the skelly in UP guarded by the wolfs. My faction was Amiably to them when I did this. I just turned it in and go the neck. No collection of skulls or what have you was required. Just to be safe, make sure when you con himto make sure he cons amiable. If you need faction, kill in ME for faction. Good hunting

RE: WEEKS???
# Nov 13 2004 at 7:25 PM Rating: Decent
actually, time is 4-5 hours to get your raid to AHR, kill and loot...
the condition is that u have the guild to do it and got CoH mages parked in VT to save some clearing time
RE: WEEKS???

Weeks once you have the VT key, and the force to raid Aten.
FT?
# Apr 17 2003 at 8:16 PM Rating: Decent
Can anyone CONFIRM if this stacks with FT, so you could have FT15 and this to bring your mana regain up to FT 23, or would this be useless on mana reagain if you had FT15, i would like a source sited, not just ya i heard, thanks!!
RE: FT?
# May 10 2003 at 5:44 PM Rating: Good
You CANNOT exceed a "worn" mana regen of 15. Period. Whether you reach it with FT items or items such as this one, 15 is the cap. So if you had FT15 and equipped this you'd still be at FT15. However, the regen would still work, and thats never a bad thing.

According to Magelo's compendium, wiht a created character with FT of 15, with this amulet your total mana regen does not rise. With FT below 15 on the same charaactor the amulet raised the total mana regen by 8 up to a maximum of 15. Try it yourself if you don't believe me.

Flowing Thought does not stack over 15, but you can have items with * other * effects that give mana regen, and those stack with FT, so yes this medallion would give you 23 mana regen if you had FT15 (or more).

WRONG

FT cap is not strictly FT items, it is a cap on ALL forms of WORN mana regen. If this were a right click effect it would stack ontop of ft15, but since it is worn it will count towards the cap of 15

RE: FT?
# Dec 08 2003 at 6:07 AM Rating: Decent
To answer your question, yes.

At a convention a while ago, the developers stated that there was an 'invisible' cap of 15 mana per tick worn regen.

AND NO MORE!!
Faction?

My guess would be Whisperling faction. I believe you can raise this by hunting Centis and four arms in ME and Akheva.

Box and Silver Links
# Jul 31 2002 at 3:43 AM Rating: Excellent
Box and Silver Links are the remains of the Original Vex Thal quest. It was scrapped when no one could figure out the damn thing. The quest you see today for the Vex Thal key is not that orignal quest
WHAT ABOUT THE CONTAINER
# Jul 21 2002 at 3:42 PM Rating: Default
Nice Amulet what you get givin the soul essnce to him but what is with the container?
For vex thal is a scepter to combine them not this amulet. only thing i know are the shattert seals from taskmasters in ssra.
I think this are 2 different quests.

Edited, Sun Jul 21 16:34:00 2002
RE: WHAT ABOUT THE CONTAINER
# May 30 2003 at 8:23 AM Rating: Decent
The shattered seals from the taskmasters actually give instructions on how to spawn glyped/exilxed/cursed cycle in SSRA. Get a seal from each taskmaster and cast indentify on them. The phrases will combine to form a riddle which is actually a "how to" spawn cycle.

Enjoy.
