Animal Trainer Visop may be found at -2210, +580.

You say, 'Hail, Animal Trainer Visop'

Animal Trainer Visop says 'Come to look at my animals, have you? I have managed to capture and train some of the finest specimens in all of Norrath. Do you have any skill with animals yourself?'

You say, 'I do have skill with animals.'

Animal Trainer Visop says 'Those blasted Trolls caused me to lose one of my finest specimens! I had captured a beautiful giant water moccasin while studying the swamplands. I did so love that snake, I even fancy she grew to love me. I spent many hours training her.'

You say, 'Blasted Trolls'

Animal trainer Visop says, 'There was a band of Troll invaders moving through our supply line one day, while I was attempting to calm one of the spiderlings they struck. My crates were smashed and they panicked the poor things rather badly. We were able to fend them off and I gathered together most of the freed animals, but alas my snake was nowhere to be found. I have been so busy helping them adjust to their new surroundings that I find myself lacking the time or [help] to go look for her.'

You say, 'Help'

Animal Trainer Visop says, 'She answers to the name of Sethena when she is in the mood. She wore a trinket around her neck that she was rather fond of. If you could bring her back to me I would be most grateful, I do fear that she may have gone wild again. if this is the case bring me back the trinket she wears as evidence of this. I must get back to work, it is feeding time. Good luck!'

  • 1. Go Innothule Swamp and find Sethena (spawn /locs include +65, +1470; -585, -555; +400, -545). Kill it and get A Muddy Trinket. (Innothule Swamp)

  • 2. Go back to Visop and give the Trinket to him to get your reward. (Rathe Mountains)

    Visop doesn't trust Vah Shir
    # Oct 09 2006 at 3:21 AM Rating: Decent
    Visop wouldn't take my Vah Shir BST's offer of the Muddy Trinket; he says. "Hmm. There is something about Vah Shir I don't trust."

    Is it a faction thing?

    Where is visop located?
    # Apr 08 2004 at 1:59 PM Rating: Decent
    I killed the snake last night simply because it was named, and looted the muddy trinket. Now i cant find the trainer, anyone know where he is?
    RE: Where is visop located?
    # Apr 30 2004 at 1:17 PM Rating: Decent
    He is next to the water right past the entrance, across from the fletching vendors... stands next to a cage holding a large jungle spider. His title is 'Animal Trainer' I believe.
    Good Loot and Coin?
    # Jul 26 2003 at 6:49 PM Rating: Decent

    Killed Sethena two days ago 100 yards out from Guk with a group. I turned in the trinket and got a considerable amount of exp, and the Bauble was returned to me. I did this quest at level 7, so info is incorrect saying level 8 is minimum. I killed Sethena again today solo and conned even to my level (now) 8 cleric. She was right in front of Guk in the water. The only difficult thing about fighting there is the burly kobolds...I hate 'em. Occasionally a froglok exile will add, but the kobolds seem to come from across the zone for a piece of me.
    Great reward

    Great neck item for nontwinked players. I wasn't actually trying to complete this quest, I was just killing trolls and happened to see the named snake. I had read about the quest on here beforehand. So I killed it, conned light blue to my lvl 13 shammy. Dropped the trinket and pristine moccasin scales (not sure if they have any use). Turned em in, got the necklace. Easy as pie. And pretty good item if your not totally twinked out.

    It's a no drop item - 2 ac, +10 hp, +10 mana.

    Where I found it though is a dangerous area of the zone for that level (13). Trolls which argo on you, burly kobolds which argo and are very social plus froglok exiles (which must have a large argo range cuz I never see them till after Im being hit) which ar ethe most dangerous simply because they can root you..which leads to problems with all the mobs wandering around (and do 35 dmg spells).

    But yea..great quest.

    Sethena
    # Apr 04 2003 at 7:41 PM Rating: Decent
    Sethena has a random spot that she spawns at, but her pathing always seems to bring her around the Guk entrance. I started turning in the Muddy Trinket at lvl 6 and still get good xp for turning it in up till 12-14. She drops the moccasin poison too but it is fairly rare. Note that the moccasin poison will also drop off a giant moccasin too. It is where I got my 2nd and 3rd poison from. Takes a long time though so make sure you got snacks and a few drinks for your character and yourself. You'll both be needing them.

    Sometimes fortune smiles upon the lowliest of souls.

    I was levelling with the help of a good Druid buddy, and with a damage shield up on my level 7 Shammy, was hunting anything and everything just north of entrance to Upper Guk, when what should slither past my feet. but another mocassin, except this one had a name!! Well, I seemed to remember some mention of a named snake in my research of Gukta quests, so I targeted, struck, and eventually (see quickly) dispatched her. Looted the Muddy Trinket, but couldn't remember who to turn in to. Now, when I go back on, I will turn in to get this nice little Trainer's Bauble. I like that it can be worn on either neck or wrist. Interesting, do Froggies have skinny necks, or thick wrists?? I'm just curious, how much exp will this quest give to a lvl 8? Will let you know.

    Snake Spotted!

    Sethena spotted near loc 0,0 - Was stationary, not wandering.

    Conned Red to my level 5 Wizzy, so didn't take her out..
    great xp
    # Mar 12 2003 at 2:14 PM Rating: Decent
    Killed Sethena the other night with my level 8 (at that time) wizzie. Got tons of xp for the turn in. My suggestion, is if you see the snake, take it (cause if you don't the next person to see her will).

    The Lost Snake
    # Feb 23 2003 at 5:27 PM Rating: Decent
    The snake he is talking about is Slethena a named Giant moccasin, blue to a lvl 11 warrior. It drops a muddy trinket that you hand into the trainer for a head/wrist item. I think stats were AC 5 +10 HPs and +10 mana
    Hmm
    # Feb 13 2003 at 3:39 PM Rating: Default
    Sounds like you either need to kill a troll and loot the snake or maybe hail a snake and say Sethena.

    My 2 cents

    I like that Troll idea. You may be on to something.
    Can't find snake
    # Feb 13 2003 at 9:15 AM Rating: Decent
    I haven't been able to find this snake. I'm wondering if we have to wait until the Expansion goes live to see it.
    RE: Can't find snake
    # Feb 13 2003 at 1:09 PM Rating: Default
    think a "Giant Water Moccasin" spawns around Guk...killed it 3 times and didn't drop anything, so it might not be her...and, of course, it didn't respond to hails, or her name...
    RE: Can't find snake
    # Feb 13 2003 at 3:36 PM Rating: Decent
    I've killed the "giant water moccasin" about 30 times now, and hailed it by name before attacking. I'm guessing we have to wait for the expansion to go live.
    RE: Can't find snake
    # Feb 16 2003 at 6:05 AM Rating: Decent
    An odd thing I had noticed while looking for the snake, is that all of the animal mobs in the zone have a message that says "so and so strikes with blinding speed" at the beginning of combat. Before I sent this quest in I ran around all of Innothule using track and didnt see a single named snake, so I'm assuming it has placeholders of some sort. Also I tried walking up to various snakes saying her name but to no avail.

    I killed the snake last night with my new warrior frog. It was on an island near the Up Guk ent. Dropped the trinket and nothing else.
