You will need to obtain the Di'Zok Signet of Service before proceeding with this quest.

Talk to a goblin traitor (2-3 hour spawn) in the Frontier Mountains (location -1900, 2000).

WARNING: Do not kill "an angry goblin", as found when clearing the room to reach "a goblin traitor". "an angry goblin" is required near the end of this quest.

You say, 'Hail, a goblin traitor'

a goblin traitor says 'Serve the Sarnak do ya? You the one they say they send? I don't know that I believe ya, show a token. Humm show me ya ring if ya got it. '

Give a goblin traitor your Di`Zok Signet of Service. He hands it right back to you.

a goblin traitor looks relieved when he sees your signet of service and eyes you with a bit more respect. 'Good! They tell'd me to wait here for ya, can't say I like it but here I sits. Itbe good to be rid of Skargus though, so I be a happy one, oh yes. Want to know the [plan] then?'

You say, 'What's the plan?'

a goblin traitor says 'Alrighty, listen listen. Skargus used to be a low rankin' nogood. He made fake story 'bout Gragbar who was the warlord and caused him much trouble with the chief. Gragbar was cast down, chief made Skargus the warlord now. Gragbar is very angry, would take back his position and kill Skargus if he get [evidence] of his treachery. '

You say, 'What evidence?'

a goblin traitor makes a terrible face, then spits on the ground before continuing. ''Gragbar are workin' with the Iksar, bleh Iksar. He sellin' goblin troopsas slaves to Cabilis when he can, sayin' they died in battle at the lake. If we get evidence of that, we get Skargus and kill him. You go to Frontier mountains, find Sarnak there, he knows where we get evidence from. Give him this note from me, and he help ya. Off with ya now, before I get seen with ya.'

He gives you a Traitor's Note. (He is on Di'Zok faction so he is a good way to test your faction standing.)

Take this note to a sarnak spy in Frontier Mountains at 1880, 3600.

a sarnak spy reads the note slowly, turning it around in his claws a few times before completing it. ''I see you spoke with that half-wit goblin! I hate hate hate it when he sends me a note, his penmanship is almost illegible. I hope he informed you of the situation, he's really not the most dependable agent of Di'zok, and sadly his note doesn't really make much sense. No matter though, are you ready to [proceed] in this mission?''

You say, 'I am ready to proceed'

a sarnak spy says 'Good, here then is what you must do. It's pretty simple actually and even one such as you should have no troubles. Skargus has been trading in slaves with the Iksar. He has a courier there, visits the outskirts of Cabilis and sends weekly reports back to Droga. If we could get that report, Skargus would be finished. Will you go to Cabilis and [get the report]? '

You say, 'I will get the report'

a sarnak spy scowls at you, clearly unimpressed by your efforts.''Of course you'll go get the report fool, but do you think that the courier will just give it to you?'' The sarnak shakes his head sadly. ''Okay, look. Go into Droga and try to get a warlord's insignia off one of the goblins in there. Take this forged note to the courier I've written out, along with the insignia to Warslik's woods and give it to the courier. With luck, he'll believe you work for Skargus and give you the report. If you get the report, find Gragbar and give it to him .''

He gives you a Forged Note to Courier.

Take this forged note to a shady goblin (24 hour spawn) in Warsiliks Wood near Cabilis at -1650, -1135 on the 2nd floor, along with a Drogan Warlord's Insignia (random drop in Mines of Nurga and Temple of Droga).

You say, 'Hail, a shady goblin'

a shady goblin says 'If yer not my contact ya best be movin' on. Got no time to waste on ya. '

You say, 'I am your contact'

a shady goblin says 'Are ya? Hum, let me see yer insignia then, and the note Skargus gave ya. '

Give a shady goblin the Forged Note to Courier and a Drogan Warlord's Insignia.

a shady goblin gapes at the note in puzzlement, obviously a bit concerned by it. The courier looks at the note for more than a minute, then looks at you, and back at the note. ''Errm.. welp, dunno what to make of the note. If I know the right of it, Skargus finally got him some girly to do his writin' for him.

Ooooh I bet she a tasty one, graarr. If I was warlord I know I'd have me a girly too. Gah, take this report and get outta my sight.

He despawns and gives you the Report to Skargus.

Take this report to an angry goblin (3 day spawn with a 10% variance) in Frontier Mountains (location -1900, 2000).

You say, 'Hail, an angry goblin'

an angry goblin 'Go away, my life is miserable enough!'' The angry goblin looks at you more closely, his rage fading for a moment. ''Are you here with the evidence I was promised? Give it to me if you have it!!'

an angry goblin howls in triumph! 'This is just what I needed! Skargus is mine now, wait until he finds out, just wait! His death is close at hand. Follow me and I'll take you to Skargus's chamber, you can wait there while I take this report to the chief!'

an angry goblin shouts 'I have you now Skargus, you traitor! Even now I'm taking this report of slave-trading to the chief! Your days here are at an end!'

Warlord Skargus says 'I've gotta stop Gragbar before he turns in that report!'

This spawns Warlord Skargus (level 56 SK with a 1k Harm Touch). Kill Skargus and loot the Head of Skargus.

Take the Di'zok Signet of Service and the Head of Skargus back to Herald Telcha in Chardok.

Herald Telcha says 'Ah hah! You are notworthy indeed amongst the servants of the Sarnak! Perhaps I should have you killed, before your deeds outdo mine.. Hmm.. Guards! Guards! Haha, do not panic menial being, in fact I am most impressed with your service. Here is the ring I promised you in exchange for your efforts.'

You receive Regal Band of Bathezid. The effect on the ring, Aegis of Bathezid, is a 25dmg Damage Shield, and lasts 25 minutes.

The ring comes with 5 charges and is rechargable by giving it back to Herald Telcha as long as you keep your faction at ally.

Please consider adding the following warning or something similar to the top of the quest write-up:
WARNING: Do not kill "an angry goblin", as found when clearing the room to reach "a goblin traitor". "an angry goblin" is required near the end of this quest.

Do not make the mistake of clearing the room including "an angry goblin" when starting the quest to reach "a goblin traitor". 3 days +/- 12 hours for a respawn is a long time to wait.

Just killed An Angry Goblin at 3:40pm central time U.S. on the Thornblade server, on 10-5-2021. Used a raid gear lvl 60 rogue & boxed lvl 52 enchanter. He spawned at -1533.00, 1964.11, -376.25 in the Frontier Mountains. If you use Brewalls maps, he is located in the exact same room where A Goblin Traitor is(which oddly enough is found directly above his room on the mountaintop more often than not due to a glitch).
I hope this helps. His timer is 3 days plus or minus 12 hours. Never once saw him spawn in Temple of Droga. Maybe that was his original spawn location. Not sure. Good hunting all!

Recent completion I got:

+500 Sarnak Collective
-200 Goblins
? Brood of Di'Zok (already max ally)

I would guess that the Brood hit is probably +200 also, but no way to know for sure.

When completing the first quest (Di'Zok Signet of Service), Herald Telcha leads into the next quest, saying:

Return to me your ring, along with the head of the Drogan Warlord Skargus, and I'll give you an even greater badge of honor.

Although he asks for both items, he only keeps the head. When he gives you ring #2 he also returns ring #1.

After doing the faction the rest of the quest takes about 30 min if all the mobs are up and you have all the tokens needed. A 61 Monk can solo the SK as long as you have a healing potion and all your mele discs up + mend.

....or it might just be a one time fluke.

I completed this quest up to a shady goblin in Warslik Woods. After handing the shady goblin the insignia and the forged note he gave me the correct text as is listed above. However he never gave me the report to hand to the angry goblin.

My cursor was empty so I checked all my bags and inventory slots....still no note. It's been petitioned but chances are I'll have to redo it again. Hehe, at least the hard part (factioning) is out of the way.

For those who are working on chardok faction, be aware that this quest may be bugged. I completed it a few days ago, and everything went fine until I turned the report into the angry goblin. As expected , Skargus popped and attacked me.
However, so did the goblin traitor who was standing nearby. While fluffy went to work on Skargus I was left with the traitor beating on me (57 mage) I had no choice but to nuke him into goblin dust, thereby taking a faction hit with the brood of Di'zok. 30 seconds later he respawned and immediately attacked me again. My pet finished off skargus and then destroyed the traitor, whereby I grabbed skargus' head and got out of there asap before he popped again.
Luckily the faction hits were not enough to prevent me from becoming ally with the brood after turning in head (although i turned in some extra skins i had beforehand, just to be sure)
But for those about to do the turn in, be advised that you may be dealing with two mobs instead of one.
(Other than that, fairly easy fight for a 57 mage with epic pet)

I found the goblin traitor aboveground, wandering around the general area of the mine entrance. The angry goblin was in the mine, though.

Note that Skargus will spawn immediately upon turn-in, so be ready.

Just for the record, turning in the head of Skargus and getting your ring also gives a *huge* faction boost with Sarnak Collective. I went from pretty low dubious to amiable.

Not that it really matters, but I thought I'd mention it anway.

Oh, and lest I forget: Turning in your Di'Zok Signet of Service to the goblin traitor seems to despawn the angry goblin. Either that, or I just had the most rotten luck. The traitor and the angry goblin were both up all the time when I slaughtered the goblins in the FM caves for three days or so.

Finally when I had enough faction, I went in to turn in my ring to start the quest. Both of the goblins were still up. Turned in my ring, and went out to the Sarnak Spy to get the forged note. On a whim, I went back inside the caves, and the angry goblin was gone. Coincidence? Possibly. I don't know. YMMV

Minimu faciton for Regal Band?

I'm thinking of killing Skargus with my necro (Max Ally faction) and looting the head with my 51 BST. The thing is, my BST is only high warmly right now, and I understand the kill of Skargus is a major faciton boost...

That being said, does anyone know if you have to be Max Ally to get the Regal Band of Bathezid when handing in the head and first ring?

Sneak would have put you at neutral. That's what messed you up.

I just completed this quest, and was at warmly when i did the spy part.

Of course the darned angry goblin took so long to spawn, I was ally from killing in the goblin caves, by the time I got skargus.

Fun Quest, and the reward is well worth the time.

I was going to do turn in to Angry Goblin. .to spawn Skargus .. when one of my group killed him... thinking it was a regular goblin .. Do I have to redo the 2nd part to make him respawn in 3 days .. or do I just wait it out.. meaning does he spawn on a regular basis without having to be initiated by turning into Goblin Traitor again?
Angry Goblin is timed.

Just give him three days and he will be back on his own.

FYI: If you are clearing out the caves in FM to gain Brood of Di`Zok faction, do not kill the goblin traitor, you'll suffer huge faction hits.
1 traior wipes out more than the faction you gain in a spawn cycle in the caves. So if you kill him 1 time each cycle you might as well go hunting in Chardok....

# Sep 16 2003 at 4:25 PM Rating: Decent
Started this quest yesterday and I've found the goblin traitor has been moved to just north of the cave entrance. His loc is now neg1600, 2000.

*edit* correction: someone must have pulled him out of his cave because shortly after a friend killed him because he got too close, traitor respawned in the cave where angry spawns...

He wanders back and forth. The best place to get the traitor though is in Droga...hardly anyone ever kills him there.

He does spawn in Droga, same place he always has, just that he ALSO spawns in Frontier Mountains. Go check if you'd like.

You can still find the Traitor in Droga, I test my faction on him regularly.

He is a 3 day +/- 10% variance spawn.

Meaning, 72 hours, give or take 7.2 hours.

Not 100% sure on the variance, but it's 3 days.

Clearing the room that traitor is in makes him spawn faster. At least that's how it seemed for me. Also, Skargus' HT is now 881 as he's been bumped down 2 levels. Hope this helps.
I CAN confirm it now :D
# Jul 11 2003 at 8:33 AM Rating: Decent
The angry goblin and the traitor goblin appear at -1900, 2000 caves. Yes, the Angry Goblin and the Traitor Goblin :)
As you go in caves, take a LEFT turn..both spawn in there.
Make sure you clear out room first, lots of roamers and quiet a few mobs in that room as well.
As soon as you turn in the report to the angry goblin the Warlord Skargus you know why you need to clear this room :)
He's an easy kill....for casters..just root cook the bastid.
Hope this helps

Can anyone confirm that the angry goblin can be found in a cave at location -1900, 2100 in Frontier Mountains? Is this a fact or just rumors?
Now where will Skargus spawn? near by or back in Droga?
RE: Angry goblin saga... =/
# Jul 11 2003 at 12:41 AM Rating: Decent
I can confirm that he does *not * spawn in the same place he did in Droga. After checking out FM and not finding him up (of course that was an hour or more after server came up), I went to Droga and found a different goblin that was in the Angry Goblins spot. AG has never had a PH, so he can't be spawning in the same location he was.
RE: Angry goblin saga... =/
# Oct 07 2003 at 7:00 PM Rating: Default
Did this a couple of hours ago, and Warlord Skargus spawned right where the angry goblin had been - he is a HUGE goblin, and had an 881 point Harm Touch -- is this correct for lvl 56?

EDIT: Corrected spelling of name.

Oh, to clarify, the angry goblin was indeed in the same spot today as I saw him after the last server reset, at the back of the room with the goblin traitor. Both were up at the same time.
RE: Angry goblin saga... =/
# Jul 11 2003 at 7:44 AM Rating: Decent
Well, the AG was not at the specified location ( -1900, 2000 ), but then again the lil bugger is way over camped in my server. Not to mention I went alone and didn't really go deep in those caves.

# Jul 10 2003 at 10:33 AM Rating: Decent
Well, patch has happened and unfortunately I wasn't there the instant it came up like I had planned. The cave at the listed loc still has lots of burynai guys in it. Has anyone seen Angry Goblin in there, and if so, exactly where?
Can someone clear this up ?!
# Jul 08 2003 at 2:35 PM Rating: Decent
Is the Angry Goblin in FM or Droga?
And let's talk about the location as of today (please see date on this post).
Any /loc on this mob?

Thank you.
RE: Can someone clear this up ?!
# Jul 09 2003 at 4:36 AM Rating: Decent
Well, considering that the patch hasn't been done yet, I'd have to say he's still in Droga, especially since your date posted is the 8th and patch is on 9th.

After the patch, later this morning, it appears that he'll be in the caves in n1900 2000. I camped there so that I can jump right on in there when servers come up, but there are only three caves in that area, so if he actually is in those caves and you can't find him, then he's either dead already, or you are stupid and can't find him. :D

Couple changes to this with the revamped Droga and Nurga zones...

Goblin traitor and angry goblin now are in a cave at location -1900, 2100 in Frontier Mountains. The traitor is also still in Droga, but the angry goblin is not.

The goblins in the cave in Frontier Mountains can drop Drogan Warlord's Insignias, as can the beefed-up goblins in Droga and Nurga.
RE: New Droga/Nurga
# Jul 08 2003 at 11:33 AM Rating: Decent
If the angry goblin is/will be in FM with the revamped Droga, where does Skargus spawn? Hopefully also in FM since the new Droga will be much tougher now.
RE: New Droga/Nurga
# Jul 09 2003 at 4:38 AM Rating: Decent
Skargus spawns right by the angry goblin in droga, so I'd bet money he does the same in FM and spawns near the Angry Goblin there.
RE: New Droga/Nurga
# Jul 11 2003 at 7:48 AM Rating: Decent
I just finished this part 15 mins ago. AG spawns in the above location. Traitor is right next to him. There are 3 other goblins in the room that you should clear out before hand off. Make sure you keep KoS people back in tunnel leading to the room, as angry and traitor will attack. Skargus spawns right on the spot where angry was. Interesting thing about fight is that since traitor is there, kos folks have to stay back during the fight. When my partner got too close and aggroed Traitor, I just feared him and FD. Partner gated.

One other thing. Be careful of being feared by Skargus. He feared me with 6% left. When I regained control, I was just outside of the Droga entrance. I had warped thru the wall all the way across zone.

The Proper Co-Ords for "a shady goblin" are
Neg1645 and Neg1112 in the top floor of this building. Pretty much right outside the zone in to Cabilis.

He stands on his own here in the corner.
