Hail, Dar Master Griblok

Dar Master Griblok says 'Welcome back, young Dar. I hope your training is going well. Unfortunately, I have been unable to keep up to date on your progress, but should you need advanced training in any individual skills, I am here to help you with that. Also, though you've chosen a life of adventure, remember that you may still be called upon to defend your homeland. To do this, you must be well prepared for war. Let me tell you what little I know of this land and aid you in your [first steps].'

What first steps?

Dar Master Griblok says 'The city is a place of sanctuary for all Frogloks. We count many friends among the good races of the land, but we have few true allies yet. We are bordered by the evil Feerrott to the south and the desolate Southern Desert of Ro to the north. Even Guk, the city-dungeon whose entrance you will see as you wander the swamp, has its darker aspects. We will need to build our might if we are to survive. Are you by chance a [new warrior]?

I am a new warrior.

Dar Master Griblok says 'Ah, good. The Army and its reserve are always in need of fresh courage. Every new warrior must attempt the training I personally oversee. I say attempt because these exercises will test you to the very limit. Now, if you have enough of the courage we seek, we [may begin].

You may begin

Dar Master Griblok says 'Good. Take this Field Armorer Kit. It will allow you to use the [looted valuables] and even bodies of your enemies to form basic armor materials. These basic materials will prove quite valuable. When placed into a forge along with the proper mold, it will allow you to craft your own Armor of the Dar Initiate.

You receive Field Armorer´┐Żs Kit

What looted valuables?

Dar Master Griblok says 'As I said, spoils of war and bodies will provide the supplies you need. Innothule Swamp, the murky land just beyond the city gates, holds some of the items you seek. You may also have to talk to local merchants to locate the odd piece. When you are ready to attempt these quests, you need only tell me what you [want] and I will provide further instruction. I can teach you the recipes and give you the armor molds for the Armor of the Dar Initiate [Helm], [Breastplate], [Armplates], [Bracer], [Gauntlets], [Leggings], and [Boots].

I want Breastplate

You receive a Breastplate mold.

Dar Master Griblok says 'The final shield. Yes. But its construction will not be easy. Go and seek some Pristine Moccasin Scales, Burly Kobold Ears, a Pristine Alligator Hide and some Moccasin Poison. Combine these ingredients in your kit. When you have the proper basic material in hand, take it to a forge along with this mold to finish your Breastplate of the Dar Initiate. Once so armored, you'll be well prepared for a [greater task].

What greater task?

Dar Master Griblok says 'War often brings out the worst, it is said. Sadly one of our very own grew greedy when he saw the trolls' treasure. Sergeant Herptol fell to temptation, ignoring the voice of our Lord that had commanded us to ignore the tainted loot. He fled the city and his rightful punishment. I've learned he's hiding out in the northern reaches of the Innothule. Go. Find him. Slay him and recover what he stole. Bring me a Larvae Skin and some Bull Alligator Spines. When you return the recovered loot and these items, I shall craft you a sword.

Dar Master Griblok doesn't respond to the buzz words and phrases anymore.

I sent them a pic of the stats. Sergeant Herptol is located at pos 1333, pos 154, and neg 29. I managed to find the bull aligator spine on the northwest area of the zone and I just bought the larva skin from the merchant

Anyone know if there is a continuation of this quest? And if so, how do you trigger it?

There is sort of a continuation. Look up the Guktan Initiate Shield(AC5 CHA+3 Wis+3 HP+5 Mana+5 Sv Magic+3). It's the melee equivalent of the Soulstone quest.

The Guktan Initiate Shield quest is for Shamen only. The shield is only equippable by FRG SHM.
Where does this guy spawn?

I have looked all over the northern part of the zone and cannot find this guy... Any help as far as where he spawns and spawn rate would be appreciated.

If you are refering to the sergeant, when I killed him he was exactly mid way between the undead tower and the rock in the middle of the zone.

Yellow con to a level 10. Spawn rate I would presume is the same as just about everything else in the zone ~20 minutes.

WOW, I've been seaching for this Sergeant Herptol for days now with no success, (where's a tracker when you need one?) Anyone have a spawn location? Every single website I've been to has been slow as molasses to update their info.

The Result of this quest is a 7 29 +2sta (might be 3, will have to check again) and Bane damage Mosquito +5. Looks just like a Lammy when equipped, hope this helps.
