    When you hail the Hermit next to the zone to the Lake of Ill Omen he says he is looking for a great sorcerer. If you say you are a great sorcerer he usually responds something like You have many more deeds to accomplish. However, if your faction, is high amiable he will hand you a flaxen hilt, which has 4 round slots on one end. He tells you to put within what once was there and return it.

    The Requirements

    A Flaxen Lock of Hair: Identifies as "Lock of Flaxen Cord." Drops from Chief Rokgus in Droga as one of his more uncommon drops, about 1 in 15.

    A Yellow Whip: Identifies as "A Whip of Flaxen Cord." Drops off a wandering named Drolvarg called A Wulfware Lonewolf (he wanders near the Firiona Vie zoneline from the Dreadlands).

    Large Tassel Bookmark: Identifies as "Tassel of Flaxen Cord." Results from the Tome Raider Quest.

    Combine all of these in the new Flaxen Hilt that the Iksar Hermit is now handing out and you will get the Barbed Scaled Whip. When you hand him the Whip and your Sorcerer's Cap from the previous part of this quest you get the following text:

    An Iksar hermit says 'All is not complete. A cap and the rest, which was asked for, is required.'

    An Iksar hermit takes the flail and vanishes with a brilliant flash!! Within your hands appears a skullcap. You hear a voice echo through the cave. 'Well done. You are a formidable necromancer. We thank you.'

    ...and you receive:

    Necromancer Skullcap:
    magic lore
    8 ac 3 dex 5 int 15 mana 8 sv magic
    heart flutter (instant) 3 charges
    useable from inventory

    Need all dialogues, faction hits, /loc of quest mobs.

    It turns out that you have to be high-amiable to get the hilt. I tried to get it from him originally and could not despite being amiable. I killed 60-70 Iksar Bandits in Warsliks, came back, and still conned amiable. This time however, he gave me the hilt.

    like it says on the post kill everything on the NW corner (hopefully Sev is not up) if you can solo it or grp it good for you.
    There are two ruins and some broken pillars. on the first ruins that are closer to the steps i kinda drew a line to its west and cleared everything west of it moving northward and then east up to the pillars. i might have spent total of 4 hours and got him to spawn a few times here are the exact locations of his spawns with what it droped.

    +3361, +3627, -21 before green
    +3949, +2633, -45 the crusade of 1312 a.g

    I am amiable and level 56 and am not receiving the hilt from the hermit any idea what I should do. He says I need many more deeds. I am also a Dark elf.

    I turned in my previous cap and he kept it saying I had more stuff to do. But did not give me the hilt. Had to petition to get the cap back.

    See bushidobul's 29 Mar, 2009 post. The same happened to me (53 Iksar nec); I was amiable but obviously on the low end because after some more factioning I was still amiable but I got the quest. I did nothing other than improve my faction.

    As far as the Iksar Tomb Raider, I spent days trying to find him. I pretty much killed everything I could find in the NW area on the cliff. I even sat on the steps from the top to about 1/2 way down for maybe 6 hours at different level; nothing. I asked a nice ranger to help track the tomb raider (thank you Bues). He was tracking all over the zone while I stayed in the NW area. I saw the tomb raider pop around the 5th most Southern pillar in the row of six, which are East of Tulok. I got lucky and he dropped the Venril the Chief the first time. On a side note, if you are asking someone to help you track don't ask them to track a Tomb Raider. Ask them to track an "Iksar Tomb Raider", DUH.

    Bottom line is I know he popped at the pillars and I bet he has several other places to spawn. I still do not know what he PH is, although I also killed a flower not too long before he popped. If I had to do it again, I think I would stay on the cliffs in NW and kill everything from around Tulok to the pillars.
    Hope this helps someone else.
    Ok what gives

    A true warrior is always armed with three things: the radiant sword of pacification; the mirror of bravery, wisdom, and friendship; and the precious jewel of enlightenment.
    Aikido is the principle of non-resistance. Because it is non-resistant, it is victorious from the beginning. Those with evil intentions or contentious thoughts are instantly vanquished. Aikido is invincible because it contends with nothing.

    I have been camping wulfware lonewolf off and on for weeks with my druid bot. I logged on today and the spawn must be better or the stars aligned. I got wulfware on logging. Went to EJ and iskar tomb raider was up and dropped temp version of book. Got the outpost book and headed to Kesoera. And yes, tortured was up too. Slam dunked the bulk of the quest in 40 minutes. Maybe the spawns have been changed by eq to make "legacy" quests easier.

    Best advice i can give ya is FD at top of stairs and wait the Raiders path will take him right by u just listen for him walking by.
    Where the heck does Wulfware spawn

    I have been looking for 2 weeks with my guild and none of us have seen him once spawn. is their a PH for him or something or is he a time based spawn
    No real surprises
    # Sep 19 2004 at 12:31 AM Rating: Decent
    I completed this earlier today. Pretty straightforward.

    1) Yellow whip. I verified what I read here - kill everything in the grass area near the FV zone in DL, and the named Drolvarg will pop eventually. Took me about an hour. I caught him right on the grass/mud border.

    2) Kaesora drop. Quite annoying. Ran to NW portion of EJ, and Severilous killed me - ran over me like a freight train. Oops. Feign failed, of course. After some friends showed up and we had dragon steaks, I killed 2 mobs in the NW and got the drop. Quite unusual. Then it was to OT, no problems, and to Kaesora, where it took the Tortured Librarian about 3 hours to show up. The annoying part was that the whole time I was afraid I was going to go LD and lose the two books, which are norent.

    3) Rukgus. Just keep killing him. I got the hair after about 4 hours.

    Edited, Sun Sep 19 01:33:04 2004
    Lock of Hair is NO DROP
    # Aug 12 2004 at 11:13 PM Rating: Decent
    A Flaxen Lock of Hair: Identifies as "Lock of Flaxen Cord." Drops from Chief Rokgus in FRONTIERT MOUNTAINS as one of his more uncommon drops, definitely uncommon.

    This item is NO DROP, so don't plan on camping it with your main, unless your necro is parked right there... (I learned the hard way!)
    Probably the hat
    # Aug 07 2004 at 10:15 PM Rating: Good
    I'm a L20 IKS NEC and I was able to get the hilt just by saying the phrase. I think it's just because I had the Sorcerer Skullcap on that I got the container. I had not done much questing other than all the hats up to this point, so my faction isn't stellar.

    where is the iksar tomb raider?
    # Aug 04 2004 at 11:56 PM Rating: Decent
    ok...i spent all day, about 8 hours, camping that bloody tomb raider..killing and killing and killing on the plateau in northwest corner of emerald jungle, running up the stairs then jumping down running the path between pos 3000 pos 3000 and pos 3000 pos 2000 and nothing

    is it possible he spawns in the iksar bandit camp down there and then wanders?

    or has his spawn area changed or anyone got a more recent recollection of where they caught him at?
    RE: where is the iksar tomb raider?
    # Nov 22 2004 at 12:11 PM Rating: Decent
    He spawned at +3850 +3400 today (near North Western corner of zone). I was tracking with my 44 ranger and would occasional kill something to break the monotony. The previous 2 kills were Erollisi Mantraps. I had been there quite some time.

    Dropped the wrong book too.

    RE: where is the iksar tomb raider?
    # Aug 26 2004 at 9:41 AM Rating: Decent
    After he spawns, he roams a lot (off the plateau usually). After a bit he almost always gets stuck under the stairs with about 20 other mobs. Run up underneath them and try to pull out all the KoS mobs there and he should be one of them.

    He seems to be a timed spawn instead of a random one as well. We slaughtered litterally half the stuff in the zone for hours and he always spawned about the same time. Sometimes I pop in and kill him, then come back a few hours later and he's always up. No one hunts in EJ really, so I doubt people are killing spawns. He's also always up after a zone/server reset.

    The bad part is his book Necro's need seems to be a rare drop. Out of about 10 recent kills haven't seen it. I get that stupid Sea Captain one every time....Not sure what it is even for.

    I killed him at roughly P4000 P2000 on the Plateau and never went off it. Took me about 2 hours.

    There are 2 sets of ruins to the north west of the stairs. I killed everything int he south most of these ruins. After about 3 hours had gotten 3 tomb raiders to pop. The third one dropped the book.

    Is he still in Droga? If he is Sony / Verant has made this quest much tougher. The zone is now a mid 50 - low 60 zone. I am a 53rd season necromancer who got my butt whipped in the entry hall by a yellow gobby. He was constantly laying 160 point shots on my pet and then, quickly, me. Anyway, if the Chief is still in Droga this quest is not mid 40's level anymore.

    Can anyone provide a loc for the Wulfware Lonewolf where you've seen it? I've been hunting right next to the Firiona Vie zone in for days and still haven't seen it.

    Edit: Well naturally, right after posting this he popped :) So here's the info where I found him at..

    Right next to the Firiona Vie entrance as mentioned before, at Loc: -550 -4550, heading NE.

    Rogue Marauder head turn in
    # Jul 22 2004 at 5:10 AM Rating: Decent
    I am a Dark Elf Necro that has been working on the Iksar necro skullcap quests. The final skullcap is wearable by all races/necro only. I have every item needed for the 9th skullcap, along with the 8th skullcap, and maxxed out Brood of Kotiz faction without an illusion. When I try to hand the head of the rogue marauder in to Glosk, I get the following message: 'I am afraid you do not have the ranking that I require to share such information with.' All I need is to get the bag from Glosk and combine the items needed for the Gem of Reflection turn in. Any help on this would be great since I have literally factioned my heart out to Cabilis for the final skullcap. I really don't want to be stuck with this crappy 8th skullcap and nothing more. Someone please help me!

    The brittle bone has been found. It drops randomnly off skeleton mobs in Charasis a.k.a. Howling stones. All that is left it seems is to find the item found in burning heat. The rock doesn't combine.
    9th quest still being implemented 6/10/04

    See this thread for a lot of info on the 9th quest:
    It looks like people have 3 of the 4 drops identified.

    See this thread for confirmation that SOE botched the implementation of the quest - the 4th item isn't yet in the game as of 6/10/04:
    One of the next patches should evidently correct that.

    9th Quest found!
    # Jun 07 2004 at 3:01 AM Rating: Excellent
    The NPC you need is Ixpacan in the Overthere, loc pos 48, neg 1072. He's down in the ravene.

    "Hail, Ixpacan."

    " there something I can help you with? I am far too [busy] to listen to your problems though so I take that back."

    "Why are you far too busy?"

    "It is none of your concern unless you are truely gifted in the dark art of necromancy. If so, you will have some form of proof to showme."

    This is where you hand in the Necromancer skullcap to him.

    "Oh, I see you are truely gifted in the dark art of necromancy. Well I will explain my dilemma to you now if you [wish to hear]"

    " I wish to hear."

    "I have recently found a volume on summoning a great minion from the Great Library of Charasis but I can't find all of the needed items. Being as I am one of the [sages of Cabilis], I request you go and [collect these items] for me."

    "What sages of Cabilis?"

    "Ah, they are all but a memory now. We used to be welcome within the city of Cabilis but our quest for greater power led to our exile. No matter now, go retrieve the items and you will be one of the chosen to walk beside greatness."

    "I will collect these items."

    "As you should broodling. The the first is a brittle bone, which was once used for reincarnations. The second item is a poisened soul, this is from an iksar that died a cruel and twisted death. The death was so awful, it's spirit still roams around angry. The third you will find in the burning heat. The final item is a gem of reflection. I have yet to find someone that knows how to create one. Even those fools in Cabilis probably wouldn't know. Maybe you can locate that one yourself. Bring all of these items back to me and I shall do the rest."

    Ok heres what I have so far, an angered spirit can be found in Emerald Jungle, north side. It drops a poisened soul. Incalescent Rock I found as a ground spawn in Skyfire, near a dragon skeleton on an isle with a lake of lava to the east, and surround on the other sides by rivers of lava. This may be the item in the burning heat. Also, Lativ in Trakanon's Teeth drops Lativ's remains, this may be used for this quest as well. I have yet to find a lead on a gem of reflection though.

    i just turned into Ixpacan the rock and the remains he handed them both back saying he has no use for these items so i guess it back to the drawing board for those 2 ( or does he give you a containor that you need to combine stuff in i have not turned in my 8th helm or the 2 confermed items
    RE: 9th Quest found!
    # Jun 09 2004 at 4:22 PM Rating: Decent
    another possable idea for the bone might be searching out any mobs with reincarnated in there name( or reanimated? on kunark prehaps there a new one or a new drop off them of the bone is seems logical since he is asking for "a brittle bone, which was once used for reincarnations" i am assumeing it will BE DB to a 58th since so far all mobs i had killed for it are DB to 58th and i am guessing it would be undead of somekind to drop it i am starting today to scour kunark zones for that type mob ( prehaps a rare spawn like we needed for 7th and 8th helms?)

    "Hail, Harbringer Glosk"

    "Harbringer Glosk Hlts his chanting. 'You dare to interrupt me? You had best have a good reason. I care not for small talk.'"

    "What of a gem of reflection?"

    "I have not been asked that in ages but I can recall the last person that asked me. If you are in league with that scoundrel Expacan, I will slay you where you stand! Buf if you are not, you will not mind ridding your kin of a [menace] as of late.

    "What menace?"

    "It sems as though a rogue maruader in a jungle near here has attacked several of our trade suppliers. If you can bring me back his head I will gladly share the information you have asked for."

    Now go to Trakanon's Teeth and search for a rogue maruader near the southwest, a bit north and east of the spectrals and seb ket quest npc. Return the hewad to Glosk and you get a bag.

    "You have done well in doing what I have asked. To make a gem of reflection you will need some Mt Death mineral salts, a green goblin skin, spiroc bone dust, essence of the rathe, blue slumber fungus, and a vial of pure essence. Combine all of these in this container and you will have what you seek."

    Pure Essence drops from a named Fironia Drixie in Fironia Vie named Marinda Flockwings. The reast I bought in the bazar. Combined gets a gem of reflection.

    I triede to combine
    Gem of Reflection
    Incalescent Rock
    Poisened Soul
    Lativ's Remains

    Didn't work. Ther Gem and soul are the only 2 certain items in the quest.

    Have to give Kumite credit for finding and posting the pure essence needed in this quest.

    Skullcap Items?
    # Jun 05 2004 at 9:39 PM Rating: Decent
    I found a loytal follower today in Burning Woods, dropped Symbol of Lativ. After looking this up, there wasn't much info at all displayed about the mob or the drop. Could it possibly be used in the 9th or 10th quest. Another thing, I cast ID on it, it was the same, gave me the idea to ID the 8th skullcap and it cam,e back with necro of the 29th circle. Don't know if any of this has any clues to the last two quests or not.
    RE: Skullcap Items?
    # Jun 06 2004 at 9:17 PM Rating: Decent
    The symbol of Lativ are used in the new iksar beastlord quest.
