You say, 'Hail, High Priestess Alexandrian'

High Priestess Alexandrian says 'Greetings child, what business do you have here? I'm sorry but I will only deal with Clerics that are willing to prove their loyalty to Innoruuk. I cannot deal with every single heathen that feels it is necessary to bid me a good day. If you are a [Cleric of Innoruuk] I might be able to aid you in your training. '

You say, 'I am a Cleric of Innoruuk'

High Priestess Alexandrian says 'Is that so Branaddar. Well from the looks of you I wouldn?t say you are much of anything yet. However, if you have the willingness and determination to serve your God then there might just be more hope for you then I would have thought. Obviously, to move forward in your training, you will need to shield yourself from your enemies and from the elements. I believe I have something that could help you if you are still [interested in proving yourself]. '

You say, 'I am interested in proving myself'

High Priestess Alexandrian says 'Well I must say that I am impressed by your eagerness to learn, however, you are not the first and will not be the last I am sure that has sworn devotion to our Lord Innoruuk. Lets just hope you don't end up in the burial grounds where many promising young ones before you have found their resting place. If you are ready to begin gathering items to fashion your very own Initiate Darkpriest Armor then I will present you with a [magical relic]. '

You say, 'what magical relic?'

High Priestess Alexandrian says 'I have a box that I have been keeping for quite some time and have been waiting to present it to someone like yourself. Someone that I had faith would be strong enough to use it's power to their benefit. This magical box can be used to refine certain metals into a magical compound that is used in crafting Initiate Darkpriest armor pieces. I have the molds necessary to craft Initiate Darkpriest [Helms], [Bracers], [Boots], [Armguards], [Greaves], [Gauntlets] and [Breastplates]. However there are some [important items] that you will need to collect before the molds will be of any use to you. One thing to keep in mind is that I suggest you craft your Breastplate last due to the difficulty of obtaining the items needed for that specific recipe. '

You say, 'what important items?'

High Priestess Alexandrian says 'There are certain items that will need to be gathered in our great city of Neriak along with many different things gathered outside in the Forest of Nektulos, where most of your training will take place. The most important component that you will need to collect while adventuring in the forest are Helms that are only worn by Priests of Rodcet Nife. These vile creatures have set up camp in the forest from what I have heard and it is your responsibility to find and execute them. These helms will be your most important component that you will gather because it is used in all [armor recipes] as the metal that you will forge your armor with. '

You say, 'what armor recipes?'

High Priestess Alexandrian says 'Ah of course , I almost forgot that you will need to know what items to combine in the Dark Blessed Box that I presented you with. Simply tell me the armor piece that you wish to craft and I will give you the list of items that you will need to combine, along with the applicable mold. For example, should you want to craft a Helm first you would say, I want to craft a Initiate Darkpriest`s Helm. Please remember that the exact items must be combined in exact quantities in the box or the infusion will not take place. After you have combined together the items necessary to infuse your metal the correct way, you will need to take the Refined sheet of Holy Metal to the nearest forge and combine it with the correct mold to yield your armor piece. '

You say, 'I want to craft an Initiate Darkpriest Armguards'

High Priestess Alexandrian says 'Excellent Branaddar! To create the correct compound in your Dark Blessed Box that will be need to be placed into a forge with this mold to craft your Initiate Darkpriest's Armguards you will need to collect and combine the following items. 3 Helms of the Lifebringer, 1 Garter Snake Tongue, 2 Ash Drakeling Scales and 2 Grapes.

Just wanted to make a clarification that I feel is omitted in the text of the quest. The orc scalp needed is indeed dropped off a Deathfist Orc Scout in Nektulos Forest but it is not called "Orc Scalp" like the ones that drop in Greater Feydark, it is called "Deathfist Scout Scalp" Hope this helps anyone doing this quest.
Scale quality

This just might be me, but here is something I've noticed.

2 or less hits: Pristine
3 or 4 hits: scale (Plain)
5 or more: ruined

It's just you. Loot is placed on a mob at the time it spawns and is unaffected by the battle.
Ash Drakeling Scales
# Aug 28 2003 at 11:47 PM Rating: Decent
Just wanted to let people know...Didn't take me but 8 kills to get my 2 Ash Drakeling Scales. They fly around different areas of Nektolus Forest. Try around the newbie log and also around spawn point. I believe I got both around spawn point. Good Luck.

As for the Ash Drakeling Scales, if you use ruined scales and combine in the box thingy. If it does infact say "these itmes cannot be combined in this container type" do you lose all or any of the other armor quest items?

So, what level DO you have to be to do this?

I have done the "final task" and gotten the Darkpriest Mace. Did it at 9th. Now, at 11, ALL of the Rodcet priests con green, and I still can't kill even one of them. Died twice last night just on corpse retreival.

Is thier some lower level camp somewhere that I'm missing, or is everyone doing this quest higher level?

I think this quest was thrown in to teach clerics that they have no soloing capabilities whatsoever against non-undead. If you bring along a lv 9 or 10 warrior or SK (especially the SK), you will own the disciples/initiates/missionaries. I assume you're doing this at the camp near the Ultricle... Back when I was first starting out, my DE SK at level 9 could flatten those annoying missionaries. All I can tell you is to grab a partner... "Thank a tank" as the saying goes.

Ash Draklings
# May 23 2002 at 5:01 AM Rating: Default
I finally got so fed up with trying to find these mobs let alone kill them I brought my level 41 ranger to Nek to do the hunting. From what I can tell one (sometimes two) draklings spawn about every 15-20 minutes. They are almost always all the way in the north of the zone not far from the entrance to Lavastorm. Even with the ranger tracking and killing, it took me about 4 hours to actually get 2 ash drakling scales (a few times ruined dropped but mostly there was nothing). <P>When you talk to the high priestess be sure to say "I want to craft the Initiate Darkpriest's Armguards". With this you get the mold and she tells you all the ingrediants. Collect the 3 Helms, 1 Garter snake tongue, 2 Ashling Drake scales and 2 Grapes (which you can buy at a bakery or brewing vendor). Put them all in the chest and hit combine. Then take the Holy Armguards Mold and the Metal sheet you get from the combining to a forge and hit combine again.
i got all the stuff
# May 15 2002 at 12:57 AM Rating: Default
Hey i have all of the items but wont combine. I think its the holy metal thig where do u get that?

You probably have the wrong type scales. Make sure you have Ash Drakling Scales not ruined or pristine.

Something Needs to be done about the drake scales dropping I have killed 100's and mainly get nothing... for a newbie quest it should be better drop rate then this... got all the armor except the arms....
The Helms!
# May 11 2002 at 5:14 AM Rating: Default
I think I saw the question asked but no one responded, can you use Cracked helms? I have been camping those pesky priests for 2 nights now, am yet to see a normal helm

Where is Alexandra or whatever, all I can find is that she spawns in the same place as someone else. But, I don't know where that is either
RE: Where?
# May 01 2002 at 8:19 AM Rating: Default
She spawns in the Cleric guild. On the first floor. However, on the Sol Ro server, she is broken. She now looks like a bald, human, monk. And she won't respond to hails.

Does anyone know if the Drakelings drop normal scales as all i keep getting runed and they dont work. Help
RE: Scales
# Apr 26 2002 at 5:29 AM Rating: Default
I got a ruined and a pristine... do you have to have just normal ones?
RE: Scales
# Apr 26 2002 at 10:07 AM Rating: Default
Yes they drop normal ones. The scales themselves are very rare. Ruined are less rare, they are for the DE Rogue quest. Occationally you can find the normal ones on vendors because people kill the draklings for XP and then sell the scales they don't need. I found a normal one on the bartender in town.
RE: Scales
# Apr 25 2002 at 4:29 PM Rating: Default
Drakeling Scales do drop off the Ash Drakelings but they are rare. The ruined are less rare, dunno if they are for anything useful.
Most common is no loot whatsoever though and since the Drakelings themselves are tough to find, it's quite frustrating finding these.

who drops the helms?
The freaking thing is broke again
# Apr 17 2002 at 11:29 AM Rating: Decent
Will they ever stop messing with clerics.
The quest is broke again.
RE: helms?
# Apr 17 2002 at 11:27 AM Rating: Decent
The Human priests near the halflings drop the helms. BTW they are all cracked and they work so don't waste time trying to find the regular ones (they never drop).

Taken out Again
# Apr 11 2002 at 6:41 PM Rating: Decent
it would seem the Priestess has been taken out again or someone killed her (not very likely someone killed her I would think) don't know why though, tried on 2 servers and she not there, I really wanted to try for that armor it sounds like its pretty cool looking
Quest is Fixed
# Apr 10 2002 at 9:42 AM Rating: Default
The quest line has been fixed! Found her last night, and turned in for the box and the molds. Made the boots and helm already. So, resume killing the Priests!
RE: Quest is Fixed
# Apr 12 2002 at 1:02 PM Rating: Default

RE: Quest is Fixed
# Apr 10 2002 at 2:29 PM Rating: Default
I can't find the Ash Drakeling Scales.

I tried using the ruined ones, but it wouldn't combine.

How rare are the regular scales?

High Priestess Alexandria

He/she is a man so don't look for a woman and yes he/she is in front of the gallows on the first floor of the cleric hall. I hailed him/her at level 4 and got no response but have not hailed him/her yet now that I am lvl 5 so I hope this will make a difference.

I wondered about the human polluting Verina's spot....hailed it but nothing, so I killed it. Several times, in fact, but no faction loss at all.

RE: Where
# Apr 09 2002 at 12:13 PM Rating: Decent
Yes she is back in the cleric guild at the gallows and appears to be working properly.

I went ahead and got all my molds and box, though just in case. Now off to try and get all the ingrediants for the armor.

Btw. This is on saryn server
RE: Where
# Apr 01 2002 at 1:42 AM Rating: Excellent
Rumor has it (from other players) that the High Pristess has been removed from game due to a bug in the quest. Did a /petition (on several occasions, regarding her lack of apperance), was informed that she MAY have been removed or MAY be broken, but that she SHOULD be back in the next patch... (this was stated on 03/31/02, not sure when the next patch will be).

Oh, yes, those pesky humans that drop the helms you need... well, their pinched between the new halfling stump and the old halfling broken druid ring (north of the broken druid ring, west of the hill along the path). The 'missionaries' are the meanest ones, but they all seem to have a chance to drop the helm. (guessing, the /loc would be about p1000 by p1000)

Been working this quest for about 4 days... finally found a halfling skull. I was told they were frequent drops... but I camped the temple and the stump for days... also halfling blood, I've yet to find this elusive liquid...

<Ack!> All that and I forgot to mention where the Pristess hangs out... my bad! In the cleric hall, in 3rd gate, in front of the gallows, was the last known spawn point... not sure if it will remain the same :-(

Drop info
# Mar 22 2002 at 8:31 AM Rating: Default
Garter snakes, obviously, drop their tongue. Ash Drakelings, obviously drop their scales (although all I've found thus far are ruined ones...). Grapes can be bought from several merchants in Neriak.
RE: Drop info
# Mar 31 2002 at 5:53 AM Rating: Default
As for the Ash Drakeling Scales, I needed one for my Wizard's quest... and I'm almost positive a ruined one worked fine. Not sure that anything but ruined drops. :) Give it a try... if it won't work, it will just say "these items cannot be combined in this container type," and you've lost nothing but energy. :)
RE: Drop info

The helm of the lifebringers drop on the Rodcet Nife NPCs that spawn near the new Leatherfoot scout spawns near the newbie log.

Not sure what you get for it yet, as it appears to be a broken quest atm. I haven't been able to do any of the dark elf cleric quests yet.
