You say, 'Hail, Garath the Trader'

Garath the Trader says 'Hail to ya Traveller, and well met! My Name's Garath, a warrior by trade, though I do dabble in some merchanting on the side. My exploring brought me here, and I saw some wonderous things. I ventured inside this ancient tomb with some friends, and oh! The horrors we encountered!. I barely made it out alive, but I did manage to pick up some [weapons to trade].'

You say, 'What weapons to trade?'

Garath the Trader says 'Interested in a trade, are ya? Well, let me tell ya.. I headed into this tomb in hopes of getting a sword I could use, maybe a warhammer.. Humm, yeah a hammer woulda been good also.. Anyhow, I was unlucky in finding those, but I did manage to get a couple weapons... Sadly, they're really more suited to a [Monk] or a [Knight], not really much use to a warrior like myself at all.'

You say, 'What Monk?'

Garath the Trader says 'Ah, my eyes fail me lately.. Maybe the cold weather is getting to me? Well, in any case, I picked up some velium hand wraps inside the Tomb here, quite nice.. Yes indeed. I guess I would trade them to ya if you were to give me a warhammer for em. I gotta say, I'm not picky. I'd accept either a primal or a priceless warhammer, and give you these wraps in a straight trade. Heck, I'd take one of each and give you both these hand wraps.'

You say, 'What Knight?'

Garath the Trader says 'Knight? Yeah, I don't make much distinction, paladin or shadow knight, they're all knights to me. Well, look here, I got two swords from inside the tomb, but I'll be damned if either of em was suited for a warrior. Clearly a knight's blade, what bad luck for me. I was hopin for a good warsword. That's why I`m standin out here ya know? I was hopin I could find someone who might swap me either a primal or priceless warsword, and take one of these knightly swords in trade.'

Upon turning in one of the weapons:

Garath the Trader says 'Ah, excellent! Guess standin out here in the cold proved worthwhile for me after all. You take that weapon and enjoy it, I know I'll be getting some use of this one. Safe travel to ya, friend!'
You gain experience!!

Garath offers the opportunity to exchange your Robe graphic Lungi for one with a Leather appearance

You say, 'What Lungi?'

Garath the Trader says, 'I don't care much for those silly robe wearers me self, but to each their own I suppose. You've got the look of someone who's lookin' for something a litte more intimidatin' than a dress. I'll trade ya your Lungi for somethin' with a rougher look!'

Handing in a Lungi of the Forbidden:

Garath the Trader says, 'There ya are Toxn. Ya look much better now. If ya decide you don't like the look later on bring it back and I'll see what I can do.''

You receive: Lungi of the Forsaken

You may trade the Lungis back and forth to get the opposite one
Upon Handing in the Lungi of the Forsaken:

Garath the Trader grumbles as he hands back the Lungi. 'I got no idea why you'd want to go into battle wearin' a dress, but I won't be the one to stop ya. Good journey's Toxn.'

You receive: Lungi of the Forbidden

How do u get key for sleepers?
# Oct 31 2004 at 10:27 PM Rating: Decent
can someone post a link for site to key bcuz i cant find it and i would like a pair of those primal fist wraps really bad!
Doesnt accept Acient Prismatic
# Nov 14 2003 at 10:24 AM Rating: Default
Just for the record he *does not* accept Ancient Prismatic Warsords...only reason I can think why it would be this way is

1. SoE just likes being jerks
2. They forgot
3. They are too lazy or have higher priorities to care

I'm thinking its 3...
Broken quest?
# May 10 2003 at 4:44 PM Rating: Decent
This quest is kind of outdated with the change to ST and primals being called prismatic now. Can no longer hand in swords for knight upgrades.
RE: Broken quest?
# Jun 07 2003 at 4:09 PM Rating: Decent
Not necessarily. As I write this, my guild is in Sleepers waiting for a warder pop who is overdue. We looted Primal today. No one ever woke the sleeper on our server. Still. Still he sleeps. And we still get Primal, not prismatic.
More info plz

Okies, quick question where do the priceless weapons drop that you trade these in for? Is the original weapon also no drop? Anyone that can answer would love to hear the response, thank you kindly:)
RE: More info plz
# Dec 13 2002 at 3:06 AM Rating: Default
They drop in Sleepers tomb and yes they are nodrop. Getting a key to ST requires killing some pretty nasty dragons. Sorry to break a few dreams.

Garath the trader is at dragon statue in the south part of the zone, location is about -7000,0.

If you are looking at eqatlas map (, it's location 10.
#REDACTED, Posted: Aug 24 2002 at 9:58 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ha. I don't care if he thinks it ain't suitable, I sure as hell think it is. GIBZ0R TO DADDYzz!!11

A 13/20 weapon is really nothing to be excited about for a high-end ShadowKnight or Paladin. 20/20 is much more in line with what a non-dual-wielding one hander should look like (the MoSS is 19/29, Sword Of Pain is 18/24, both of which are attainable LONG before Sleeper's Tomb).

I'm certain you turn in a Priceless Velium Warsword for a Priceless Velium Knight's Sword, and a Primal Velium Warsword for a Primal Velium Knight's Sword.

Nice quest.

sword turn in?
# Aug 22 2002 at 2:24 PM Rating: Decent
this guy coudl have been nice and told us what sword he turned in. he possibly turned in a priceless sword, so got a priceless, maybe if he turns in a primal, he gets a primal.
Primal velium knights sword?.
# Aug 22 2002 at 9:57 AM Rating: Decent
I wonder what the stats are on the Primal Velium Knights sword would be.

Remember he said he has 2 sowrds and would trade for a priceless or a primal war sword.

Warrior = Moron
# Aug 21 2002 at 5:43 PM Rating: Default
So this warrior npc says i don't want this 20 dam 20 dely weapon I want one thats 13 dam 20 del
Yes there is 5 more ac and 25 more hp on the primal (and actually has alot more bonuses than priceless) but really at this level you have maxxed your ac and 25 hp means jack (100 or more might make it worth it but thats just my opinion) in comparison to 7 more base dam per hit . I know I got no shot at either (sleeper's tomb to get one and the other is sk/pal only + sleeper's tomb raid) but its just silly. why would a warrior turn down a better weapon ? further why do sk/pali's get an upgrade to primal by a turn in quest ? well any how good for them . i guess i wish there were these sorta perks for warriors , like turn in primal get a weapon with less delay no int/wis/mana or other junk stats or even a weapon with more ac or hp or str or stam .... sorry i just get a little bother by verants constant "we think warriors are perfect" statement . Have they ever played one ?

there i feel better ... flame away

RE: Warrior = Moron
# Aug 22 2002 at 7:18 AM Rating: Decent
the reason SKs and Pallys get to turn in and upgrade the primal 1hs is probably because they cant duel wield. therefore, their 1 handers tend to be better than a standard warrior 1 hander. but thats just my guess
RE: Warrior = Moron
# Aug 21 2002 at 7:54 PM Rating: Default
given if the npc was a pc ,he would be bound by the same rules as us .... but he says its not "suited for a warrior" as if it were not good enough for him , i don't know about you but i've seen plenty of mobs wielding weapons (and casting) that thier "class" can't use for instance ch'ing mobs wielding 1hs weapons ;-)
any way what i want is a trade of this nature for warrior only or cleric only or enchanter only, so forth and so on. not even necessarily on this item(because , really , i will never have access to one of these) but more mid level stuff.
i.e. ohoh i just got the "pretty nifty dagger of **** wooping" off this mob i just took out, oh look it has +50 int and + 20000 mana and its 1 dam 200 delay and no drop..... hmmm more fodder for the destoy button.
back to reality of course, i really just think that the gear availible to the most gear dependant class is only so so and ussally made availible to multiple calsses.... (not that they want our junk just the pp from selling it ;)

Umh... idiot... this is a ROLEPLAYING game, is it not? That's why he says it isn't suited for him. He's a warrior, and VI programmed him to act like a warrior PC, even if he could use it because he is an NPC. DUMBASS!
RE: Warrior = Moron
# Aug 21 2002 at 5:59 PM Rating: Default
He doesn't want it because he can't use it dumbass. The sword you get in trade is Pally/SK only DUMBASS. There I feel better.
