You say, 'Hail, Torm Wenrar'

Torm Wenrar says 'Hail to you my friend Aerowen! I am Torm Wenrar, proud warrior of the Draconic Loyalist Fellowship. The dragons and dragon-kin of Skyshrine have need of capable warriors to aid in the war with the giants of Kael Drakkel. Do not consider this a sign of weakness, even the most powerful beings benefit from having friends and allies. The Giants too have many beings in their service, Ogres, Trolls, and unfortunately even Northmen like myself have been hired into the service of the Kromzek. These mercenaries must be put down, perhaps if enough of them are slain, other sell swords would be deterred from seeking the employment of the Kromzek. The dragon-kin have placed a [bounty] on the lives of the Kromzeks mercenaries, any aid you can provide to the Skyshrine would be well rewarded.'

You say, 'What bounty?'

Torm Wenrar says 'You shall be rewarded from Skyshrines treasure hordes for the Kromzek Mercenary Brooches of every three mercenaries in the Kromzeks employment you slay. If you manage to locate and slay the [mercenary captains], or the more [notorious mercenaries] the rewards will be greater.'

Turn in three Kromzek Mercenary Brooches, collected from the Mercenaries of various races in Wakening Land and Eastern Wastes.

Torm Wenrar says 'I require three Kromzek Mercenary Brooches to reward you with the bounty.'

Torm Wenrar says 'Well done Aerowen! The Draconic Loyalist Fellowship and the residents of Skyshrine are grateful for your assistance in eliminating the threat the Kromzeks mercenaries pose to the dragons and dragon-kin of Velious. Here is the bounty that has been promised.'

Your faction standing with Claws of Veeshan got better.
Your faction standing with Yelinak got better.
Your faction standing with Kromzek could not possibly get any worse.
You gain experience!!

just thought i'd mention anyone can do this for the faction boost.

Not sure what the faction hits like but took me to maxed ally without much effort,, I just bound near where the 3 mercs spawn in EW & ported in & killed them each time i was going to port anyway, but then druids get it easy )

Aye, he speaks up at high "Amiably". He wouldn't give the Brooch quest to me when I first hit "Amiably", but he would moments later, when I had turned in more toes and helmets and zoned out and back, with a higher "Amiably" score.

At the entrance to Skyshrine hail Sentry Kcor on the left. When you tell him you wish to prove your worth, he requests that you return to him assignments from the "agents of the Storm Giants". The assignments he speaks of look like playing cards and are dropped off the various Mercenaries in Wakening Lands.

Torm Wenrar's a Barbarian, so he kind of stands out... here's how to get to him from the WL entrance:

From the front gate, take a left at the T intersection
Follow the path up the stairs, then go straight, follow the path around to the next set of stairs.
At the top of the stairs, there's another T intersection... take a right, then another right at the next intersection.
Follow the path until you see a wooden door on the left hand side... open the door, and there's Torm.

For those loc-friendly people (not too useful in a place like Skyshrine, though) he's at pos145 neg700 pos43. Have fun brooching.

Tried this quest using sneak to get from dubious to indifferent faction. Wenrar told me something to the extent that I was not good enough and just ate my brooches.

What faction is needed to do this? Only at amiable and no one will talk to me. Use to have max ally until Yelisnack met my fist. Ah well
RE: hm
# Dec 19 2002 at 12:18 PM Rating: Decent
I first found this quest at amiable, and Torm was about the only one in Skyshrine who would talk to me about quests then. Maybe you just haven't found him, 'cause he should speak with you.

Actually, the original poster probably just wasn't amiable enough. Using the Faction song I was able to hit amiable early, but for a while I still wasn't able to talk to him. The cutoff seemed to happen at about the same time my base faction went from apprehensive to indifferent, although I was still amiable with the song. I now have a base amiable faction, but can't talk to him without the song.

We get the same reward for the captains as we do for the regular mercenaries? Hardly seems worth the bother to hunt them down if they are spread out. You can get enough brooches from regular mercenaries at one camp to finish the quest.
No, captain reward is a belt

Captains is a belt, for three captains brooches.
The belt sucks kind of:

Draconic Girdle,
Lore Item, No Drop

Ac 8
Str 8
Sta 4
Hp 10
Sv fire 2, sv cold 2
Weight 1

War Clr Pal Shd Brd
All race

The belt would only be worn by a tank, yet any tank who could do the quest would probably have a haste belt. If they had another hast item, they'd have one of the cheap HP belts from the bazaar.

"Captain Mc`Hershs Brooch: Unknown as of yet (sounds Dark Elf-ish)" It's obviously Barbarian. Remember the hints he gives, Ogres, Trolls, Northmen. Not Ogres, Trolls, Dark Elves.

Now MY name is more Dark Elvish...I have yet to see a single "Mc" on any Dark Elf, lol.

Its about the "If you manage to locate and slay the [mercenary captains]" part of the quest text.

He asks for the brooches of the three mercenary captains.

Captain Blargs Brooch: Troll mercenary
Captain Ulmogs Brooch: Unknown as of yet (Ogre mercenary maybe)
Captain Mc`Hershs Brooch: Unknown as of yet (sounds Dark Elf-ish)

So far I have only seen Captain Blarg, but will be hunting more and hope to have info soon on what the quest reward is.

I also submitted the setup on the Mercenary Captains quest along with this one, so I expect it'll be up early next week.

Captain Ulmog is an Ogre Mercenary Captain. He's been confirmed as spawning at the Ogre Mercenary camp near the jail in Eastern Wastes, but I don't know for sure if we'll see him in the Wakening Land.

Captain McHersh is a Barbarian, and is a confirmed sighting in the Wakening Land.

Hoping to see your details on the completion/reward as you get them. I'll keep hunting and try to do the same.
McHersh is a barbarian, just inside Kael from WL

You zone into kael from WL, hug the wall to your left with invis on. You see two giants there, one in kind of a small open house thing. In another small open thing is a

Barbarian Mercenary

Or that Captain Mchjersh.

Unlike the Ogre and troll captains, the barb one was in chainmail, instead of plate like the other mercs.

He is not really worth camping. No one else was ever in there looking for him during the week that I'd come and kill the merc sometimes, leave, then come back later. Finally last night or the other night the captain spawned.

I posted about the captain quest reward above this in the threads.

We killed McHersh on the way out of Kael, near WL zone a few weeks ago.

Well, I think it was him, someone correct me if there's another barbarian "Captain Somethingorother" in Kael near the WL zone. McHersh sounds right, but I haven't been in Velious much (just started working on SS faction) and didn't think to note the exact name. My friend wondered who the heck he was and we just killed him because he was giving us a dirty look, scowling at us all ready to attack and such. "whadda *you* lookin at?" [bonk]

Anyways, I'm pretty sure it was him, but I have no idea on how often he spawns as it was just a chance encounter. I'll update this if I spot him again whilst factioning in the Arena (I got tracking so I'll find him if he's there)

EDIT: When I was in Kael a few nights ago, I spotted McHersh on track again, so yes, he spawns in Kael near WL zone.
