War Historian Kobl may be found in the Warriors Guild at -596, -237.

You say, ‘Hail War Historian Kobl’

War Historian Kobl says, ‘You have come to learn, have you not? I have knowledge of importance to young warriors of the legion. Or perhaps you are a scribe seeking my [unique writing materials]!'

You say, ‘What unique writing materials?’

War Historian Kobl says, ‘You must be a scribe of sorts? Always glad to assist a talented youth. I make two things unique to Cabilis and important to any future scribe. I can create [blood ink] and [illweed parchment].'

You say, ‘What blood ink?’

War Historian Kobl says, ‘If blood ink is what you seek, only I can provide it. I use a unique blend prepared by my secret method. I can supply you with a vial of blood ink, but first you must fetch me four ingredients. I need globules of blood from certain creatures. I need globules from the carnivorous plants, leeches, and mosquitoes. I also need globules from the blood pit of the Tower of Death. Bring me these and be quick, or the blood will disintegrate.’

You say, ‘What illweed parchment?’

War Historian Kobl says, ‘If you wish to obtain a page of my illweed parchment, you only have to perform a simple task. Bring me four illweed reeds from the Lake of Ill Omen. You may find that the only way one can find illweed is to go fishing.’

Need all dialogues, quest mobs and their /locs, quest items, current faction hits, quest rewards, additional zones, confirmation about how to obtain illweed, etc.

I haven't been able to fish Illweed out as of my last attempt a month or so ago, but I did find a use for the Illweed Parchment after talking to a DE merchant in Overthere. I posted the text here:

Ok, Do not confuse the Water reeds that you get with Foraging with Illweed reed. They are COMPLETELY different. as far as I can tell the quest does not work right now. as with a 150 skill in fishing I was unable to find anything beyond Bloodfin Trout and the normal rusty daggers/sandals. You cannot forage Illweed Reed.
What is the benifit of this quest?

I do'nt understand the benifit of this quest. Is it good xp? faction? or does the item have some kind of worth or value?

And why is it ranked "Good"? I see nothing besides really faction that could make it that good of a quest. Seems kinda wierd.
water reed

I get water reed when foraging, never bothered to Identify it, is it the right stuff, if so it is relatively common
Reeds and Clay

Wet Clay Forages in Overthere.
I regularly Forage IllWeed Reeds in Lake of Ill Omen.

Yesterday I foraged one with my ranger. Put down the poles, and get to foraging.
Illweed can't be fished anymore it seems

I have used over 200 bait as of Jul 13 and no Illweed reeds or wet clay are able to be fished anymore for some reason
