This is the fifth upgraded warrior pike quest.

Seek out War Baron Eator in the fort in East Cabilis.

You say, 'I am a brave trooper of the empire'

War Baron Eator says 'So you are a trooper? Word of your deeds has been spreading through the legion. If you truly wield the pike of a trooper, then go and serve the garrisons of swamp, lake and woods. Report to the Warlord and tell him you are a [trooper reporting for duty]. Their recommendations and your trooper pike shall earn you the rank of legionnaire.'

You need to seek out the three Warlords, and perform a task for them to get their recommendation to promote you to the rank of Legionnaire. Each is in the city area of the Lake of Ill Omen, the Swamp of No Hope, and Warslik's Woods.

Go to Warlord Geot in the Lake of Ill Omen.

You say, 'Hail, Warlord Geot'

Warlord Geot says 'Greetings!! You look like an adventurer. I have a bit of a problem with which you might be able to help. You see, there have been reports of sarnak hatchlings near the lake. I do not know why they are here, but I do know we need them exterminated. Here is the deal.. You bash them good and return their brains to me. For every four brains, I shall reward you.'

You say, 'I am a trooper reporting for duty'

Warlord Geot says 'Very good to have you on board, Trooper _____! We have had reports of sarnak legionnaires attacking caravans. I shall require you to find these sarnak legionnaires. Take this pack. Fill and combine it with as many of their brains as sill fit inside. Return the full pack to me and I shall consider you for a promotion.'

You receive a "Lake Garrison Pack", a four slot container.

Find and kill Sarnaks named "a sarnak legionnaire". They will each drop a "Tattooed Sarnak Head", which identifies as "Head with Legionnaire Tattoo". Get four of them and combine them in the Lake Garrison Pack to receive an item named "Four Sarnak Heads". Hand this in to Warlord Geot.

Warlord Geot says 'Very good. I cannot see any reason a warrior like you should waste their time on the patrols of a trooper. I shall recommend you for a promotion. I hope the War Baron agrees.'
Your faction standing with Legion of Cabilis got better.
Your faction standing with Cabilis Residents got better.
Your faction standing with Scaled Mystics got better.
Your faction standing with Crusaders Of Greenmist got better.
Your faction standing with Swift Tails got better.

You receive a "Legionnaire Recommendation" (identifies as "Lake Garrison").

Now go to Warlord Vyzer in Warslik's Woods.

You say, 'Hail, Warlord Vyzer'

Warlord Vyzer says 'Greetings, small one! You should not waste your time in the safety of the troopers' patrols. Go forth into the land and earn your stripes in battle. Become a greater asset to the Iksar empire.'

You say, 'I am a trooper reporting for duty'

Warlord Vyzer says 'Welcome to my garrison, Trooper _____. Lucky for you that you do not serve the inferior swamp garrison. They lose more troopers than any legion unit. You have come just in time. We need you to take this pack and fill it with goblin warlord warbeads. Combine the beads in the pack and return it to me.'

You receive a "Woods Garrison Pack", a four slot container.

Find and kill "Goblin Warlords" in either the Lake of Ill Omen or Warslik's Woods. They each drop "Goblin Warlord Warbeads". Combine four of them in the Woods Garrison Pack to receive an item named "Four Warbeads" (identifies as "Full Warlord Warbead Pack"). Hand this in to Warlord Vyzer.

Warlord Vyzer says 'Great job, Trooper _____. Such a warrior would serve the empire better as a legionnaire and not a trooper. I shall recommend you for the rank of legionnaire.'
Your faction standing with Legion of Cabilis got better.
Your faction standing with Cabilis Residents got better.
Your faction standing with Scaled Mystics got better.
Your faction standing with Crusaders Of Greenmist got better.
Your faction standing with Swift Tails got better.

You receive a "Legionnaire Recommendation" (identifies as "Woods Garrison").

Now go to Warlord Hikyg in the Swamp of No Hope.

Warlord Hikyg says 'What business do you have speaking to an Iksar warlord? Be gone, before you find yourself served as my evening meal! Go to Captain Nedar if you wish to assist my garrison. Fool.'

You say, 'I am a trooper reporting for duty'

Warlord Hikyg says 'It is about time they sent new troopers for my garrison!! This is the toughest garrison in Kunark!! And you're going to help prove it. The legion needs to get a hold of some new frog shields called Krup warrior guards. You're going to take this pack and fill it with not one, but four!! When you can return a full, combined pack to me, maybe you will show me that you're not as weak as you look!!'

You receive a "Swamp Garrison Pack", a four slot container.

Find and kill "froglok krup guards" in the Swamp of No Hope. They only spawn in Krup, the frog city, and are a fairly rare spawn. They will each drop a "Krup Warrior Guard". Combine four of those in the Swamp Garrison Pack to receive an item named "Four Crushed Shields" (identifies as "Full Krup Shield Pack"). Hand this in to Warlord Hikyg.

Warlord Hikyg says 'What?!! You crushed all the shields!! You croak-faced skulking brute!! You don't deserve to be in my garrison!! I am going to recommend you for a promotion in hopes that you will be sent to hunt dragons and meet your end!'
Your faction standing with Legion of Cabilis got better.
Your faction standing with Cabilis Residents got better.
Your faction standing with Scaled Mystics got better.
Your faction standing with Crusaders Of Greenmist got better.
Your faction standing with Swift Tails got better.

You receive a "Legionnaire Recommendation" (identifies as "Swamp Garrison").

Take all three recommendations to War Baron Eator and turn them in along with your Trooper's Pike.

War Baron Eator says 'I await three letters of recommendation and your trooper pike.'
War Baron Eator says 'I await three letters of recommendation and your trooper pike.'
War Baron Eator says 'I await three letters of recommendation and your trooper pike.'
War Baron Eator takes away your pike and hands you plans not for a pike head, but for the crown of another polearm. 'It is time to wield the weapon of a [true warrior of the legion]. You have done well, legionnaire _____!'
Your faction standing with Legion of Cabilis got better.
Your faction standing with Cabilis Residents got better.
Your faction standing with Scaled Mystics got better.
Your faction standing with Crusaders Of Greenmist got better.
Your faction standing with Swift Tails got better.
You gain experience!!

You receive "Legionnaire Crown Plans."

Now seek out Weaponsmith Grugl in the fort in East Cabilis to learn how to forge your Legionnaire's Mancatcher.

You say, 'What legionnaire mancatcher?'

Weaponsmith Grugl says 'To forge a legionnaire mancatcher, a blacksmith of great skill would need the steel rod, forge hammer and the forged legionnaire mancatcher crown. That crown is forged with the geozite tool, legionnaire crown plans, a raw crown and a peridot.'

Buy a "A Mancatcher Crown", "Forging Hammer", and a "Steel Rod" from Weaponsmith Grugl. Purchase a "peridot" (gem) from the gem merchants near the bank.

In a forge, combine "A Raw Mancatcher Crown", "Legionnaire Crown Plans", "peridot", and your Geozite Tool (obtained by a quest from Drill Master Vygan). You'll receive "Legionnaire's Mancatcher Crown" (blacksmithing, 15 trivial). If you fail you'll receive your Geozite Tool and your Legionnaire Crown Plans back.

You then need to combine an "Steel Rod", "Forging Hammer", and your "Legionnaire Mancatcher Crown" in the forge to obtain your Legionnaire's Mancatcher (blacksmithing, 170? trivial). If you fail the combine you'll receive your Legionnaire's Mancatcher Crown back.

Congratulations, you've received your Legionnaire's Mancatcher!

I completed the trooper pike then spoke to War Baron Eator, his reply " No Iksar resident will have aything to do with you." Faction with him is amiable.

Is there a certain level required, faction, or possibly smithing level? I'd appreciate any ideas, thanks.

Working now, i turned in a few bome chips and explorer knives, faction was still amiable but he gave me quest now. Not sure what happened to get it working.

Progress so far

I found that the easiest place for Goblin Warlords at level 27 is the warrior camp the the east of the explorer tower. Maybe an hour spent there and a few oranges of exp later, I had four warlord beads.

The legionnaire heads are a LOT harder. I've gotten three so far. I killed one lego outside the northern entrance to the Sarnak fort. Not wanting to wait to see if another would spawn 20 hours later, I dispatched the three recruits in front (took some zoning, heh), and the one patrolling one just inside. Went in, killed a lego easily. Killed the next lego, but he had SoW and ran to some friends.

I'd like to point out: ouch!

I did kill him and loot his head, however. They look like troll heads, don't ask me why.

I'll update this post as I finish my quests.

What was you Smithing skill? I completed the Head at a skill of 81 and was given the trivial message. On the pike itself, I failed 3 times, got it on the fourth try along with a skill up to 82.

At 115, it should be a 100% or so success for a combine that trivs at 15.

Edit: I have been informed that it is 215 skill that a combine that is failable and trivs at 15 becomes no fail at.

Champion's Mancatcher

STR: +5 STA: +5
WT: 12.0 Size: GIANT
Class: WAR
Race: IKS
Slot 1, type 4:

Follow the instructions listed here up to getting the note from Trooper Drix in Field of Bone. Give note to Vygan to get Champion Crown Plans.

Go to Weaponsmith Grugl and say to him, "I wish to forge a champion mancatcher crown". You will need a geozite tool (remember that quest?), a raw crown, the crown plans, and an opal. Combine in forge to get a forged champion crown. Combine the forged champions crown, a steel rod, and a forging hammer in a forge to get your Champion's Mancatcher.

I got a clue that there is a Warlord's Mancatcher by saying to Weaponsmith Grugl, "I wish to forge a Warlord Mancatcher Crown". And his reply was:

"To forge a Warlord Mancatcher a blacksmith of great skill would need the titanium rod, a forge hammer, and a forged Warlord mancatcher crown. The crown is forged with a geozite tool, crown plans, a raw crown, and a black pearl".

I tried all kinds of combinations of questioning to all of the drill masters and war baron eator himself, but no real luck. The only thing I got was from Vygan by asking "Who is War Baron Eator?", and he says, "The Baron is the supreme commander of the Legion of Cabilis. Do not bother him. He has no time for broodlings." But I think that is a newb response from him and not related to the quest.

Good luck in finding the next plans

*EDIT* - Also forgot to mention, I still have my last pike in the bank, so now I have 2 not so great no drop pikes...looks like you don't need to hand them in to progress.

Smithing was at 196 and it was trivial, so I guess trivial is less than that...go figure. Made it first attempt.
next pike
# May 22 2004 at 10:13 AM Rating: Good
should of done this long ago but as i posted under unfinished note...I threw in a few clarifications and bunched it together some

In east cabilis tell drill master vygan "i am a legionnaire" he will respond " yes you are. I see you are willing to possibly sacrifice yourself for the cause. that is good. take this container and hunt down the messengers. They are the ones that relay battle plans to the different tribes. Their combined message will reveal the master plan. Go now and do not return untill you have them all"

He gives you a "book of bindings" lore nodrop wt 2 wr 0% cap 4 size tiny.

in OT sarnark messanger found near warsilk woods and another found to wander between that messanger and the fm zone line following path drops unfinished note ids as top left corner

in WW found a goblin messanger who dropped an unfinshed note looks same as this one all same but id's as top right corner. mob roams right up to front of gob fort east entrance then follows path almost to first fork in road then returns.

sarnark messanger in loio paths from sarnark fort back entrance tower across bridge to FM folowing path.

one goblin messanger in FM paths right up to entrance of nurga not sure where he goes from there

take the 4 unfinished notes and combine in book of binding and return the an illagible message (lore nodrop wt 0.1 size tiny) to vygan he responds

hmm... even if the writing wasn't as smudged as it is, i still would not be able to decipher the hidden message. You must now take this and find some one with the ability to read it. I hear there is such a person on patrol but i cannot recall where."

well thanks alot mr vygan that narrowed it way down...oh yeah you gain exp not much but exp

update 2.0

found patroler in field of bone /loc 1162 1801 trooper drix <think he day spawn>

hail him he says "cant you see i am busy on patrol"

give him an illegible message he reponds "ah, i see you know my true [calling]."

what true calling "i am the leading authority on restoring and deciphering messages. I can probably make out the message if you can bring me back some [items] i commonly use."

what items "i will need your message,a frost crystal, sarnark war braid, and some silver oxide. bring these items back to me and be quick about it."

some wher along line he gives you drix's satchel lore nodrop wt 1 wr 0% cap 4 size medium

no spell check in version 2.0 so stay with me

the frost crystal is foraged in DL dont ask me where it dont matter where as long as your in DL you can forage it eventually if theres a ranger or druid hunting there they probably destroying them and would be more then happy to hook you up

the sarnark war braid comes from a sarnark beserker... in OT if you are a traitor and sleep with the enemy dont fear just run around till you see a beserker with a whip in his hand

the message well you have it

the silver oxide umm if you know post it

ill be straight up with this im on the test server i dont know whats live and what isnt but i got some of my clues to this stuff from live servers and im an sk so get the ball moving warriors =)

edit here >>>oh and for some motivation think i kinda got ahead of myself but thinking i might of accidently stumbled on another step so once we get this figured out i gots a good idea of where to start next step or maybe step after...

I have completed the Champion's Mancatcher.

12/30 Ac 6 Str 5 Sta 5 SvM 10

Damage bonus was 10 at lvl 56.

I cannot figure out how to trigger the next

when you hand in the completed note you get this script

Drill Master Vygan says 'I see you have returned in one piece. That is good. You have shown that you are a true warrior of the Legion indeed! Take this, and show that you are more than a legionnaire. I fear we may need just that [before this issue is over].'

recieve champion crown plans

"before what issue is over?"

Drill Master Vygan says 'Do not concern yourself for now. Rejoice instead and seek out Weaponsmith Grugl to guide you in forging your new weapon. I must speak to War Baron Eator regarding the welfare of Cabilis now.'

well i promised more info here it is...

In Fob you will find iksar mercenaries north of cab along wall that drop lore nodrop band there are three that drop and when identified id as rank A rank b rank c <<before you war type go and jump one word of warning as a 65 sk raid buffed a ligh blue on beat the crap out of me u will do very little melee damage if any to them so go find you a caster to kill them they die just fine to nukes and dots>> now talk to klok scaleroot in west cabilis.

when hailed she responds "whats that? Oh, I'm sorry I've been preoccupied with the recent [attacks] as of late."

what attacks " You dont know? I thought everyone was aware now. It seems as though, there have been [mercenaries] doing horrible things to the city."

what mercenaries "they wear the bands of xyzith's troop. unfortanetly, War Baron Eator doesn't believe that the situation has gotten this bad. If only someone was able to find a way to [help] show him how bad the issue is."

i will help "will you now? That is good. Bring me the bands and we will take it from there"

give her the three bands "whats this? I see you have the proof that i have been looking for. Take this note and speak to Drill Master Kyg. She is a stubborn one but true to keeping the legion safe"

give note to kyg "What's this you have? Hmmm...I knew there where issues brewing by not of this magnitude. The war Baron has seemed preoccupied with [other issues]. These issues may be one in the same"

key phrase..."It seems as though a [warlord] recently brought back news of xyzith's fate. the war baron could not understan how xyzith could turn on his fello brother so. The war baron now seeks to find one that can solve this mystery"

key phrase The warlord's name? I believe it was...wait a minute! Why does this concern you? All you need to know is that the warlord is very brave and serves this legion proudly unlike you! If you wish to prove yourself you'll speak to war baron eator regarding his findings and give him this to show your worth" You get a note

give note to eator "ah i see you have gained the approval of another. I suppose you are the one i should [share our findings] with then."

key phrase..."It seems we have no clue as to why Xyzith turned against us. We need you to find where he traveled and get down to the bottom of this mystery. Go speak to Geot. He was the closest to Xyzith. He may rember where xyzith searched for the legendary metal."

Geot is warlord in LoIO
Who is xyzith "warlord xyzith was one of the legion's most honored. he lead his troops into countless battles and never suffered a loss. He was sent out on this mission many say because his thirst for war had grown large. He vowed to bring back a metal so powerful that it would bring fear to those that laid eyes upon it."

where is xyzith "I wish i knew. I can't understand why he turned on us like that. I hace since seen him in my dreams, or rather nightmares. He is not right and I will not believe that he is the same Xyzith I once Knew"

whew alot o typing but that should give a pointer on where to go from there notice that eator never handed nothing out so you can go quize geot yourself those where the only phrases i could get out of him but a fearsome metal sounds like much goodness and congrats to those that beat me too the next pike

give Geot the tattered bracer (xyzith's broken bracer) and he gives you a satchel to fill with the rest of the items.

however, this part is currently broken as the items don't fit in the bag. i think someone mentioned this already.

This got fixed with the June 2 patch. The four quest items fit into the container now. When combined and handed to Warlord Geot he tells you to head to the necro guild and find someone who can [talk to the dead], that way he wants to find out what happened to Xyzith.

Head to West Cabilis' Tower of Death and ask Master Rixiz if he can talk to the dead. He's very annoyed that you even dare to ask such a question and quickly sends you off to find a renegade Iksar necromancer by the name of Ixzec to bring back his head. Ixzec is supposed to be found in a nearby jungle but I wasn't able to track him down yet.

Hey, not an iskar or amything, but ran upon this tonight and might help ya. I know Nurga like the back of my hand, and leveled there for like 6 months straight, but tonight...two new mobs were there I had not seen before, EVER. They were called challenging goblin and fearless goblin. I killed one and not the other. But all the info ya need on them is on this sight, so I looked um up.

challenging goblin drops a no drop item called "Broken Mancatcher's Crown"...Item Lore on it is: "Part of Xyzith's mancatcher."

fearless goblin drops a no drop item called "Symbol of the Legion"...Item Lore on it is: "A symbol of loyalty given to Xyzith from War Baron Eator"

seems to be the tail end items of the quest ya doing and the gobs mysteriously appeared right after the patch that fixed the iskar quest.

2 n 2 together...
Anywho, I hope this helps yall iskars

Sony's test boards have stated the final quests for iksar warriors, necromancers and beastlords are on test, possibly on live at this point. While checking around cab I believe I may have tripped part of the next quest.

Speak to Drill Master Vygan, upstairs in warrior guild.

Say "I am a legionnaire"

and he replies with;

"Yes you are I see you are willing to possibly sacrifice yourself for the cause. That is good. Take this container and hunt down their messengers. They are the ones who relay battle plans to the different tribes. Their combined messages will reveal the master plan. Now go and do not return untill you have them all"

He hands you a four slot, no drop, lore container called a book of bindings. As you can see though he's not exactly very specific and I haven't been able to get anything else out of him.

Edit, found from other posts 2 notes that look like they fit. "An Unfinished Note" dropped by a Sarnak Messenger in the Overthere, southeast corner between FM and WW. This note identifies as top right corner of a note.

The second seems to come from a Goblin messenger near the goblin fort in Warslik's woods, identifies as top right corner.

No clues beyond that, but I imagine the other two messengers to be either goblin or sarnak, and potentially in Frontier Mountains, Lake of Ill Omen, Firiona Vie, Swamp of no Hope or Field of bone, in order of probability.

Last Pike?
# Mar 01 2003 at 3:58 PM Rating: Default
This can't possibly be the final reward for the nooby quest.

Some evidence to consider:
All the other Iksar class rewards for the nooby quest have 8 steps.

The monk, shadow knight and shaman final rewards were so good they allowed the other races access to them through faction.

I have an old Prima's guide for Kunark that has listed, for smithing combines, all the pikes up to the legionaire mancatcher as well as a warlord and overlord version. The latter 2 of which there is no trace.

I think the most annoying part of all these quests is that fact that at one point or another through my 2 years of play I have come across all of the junk Im diggin up to finish these quests. And now they seem...rare.

More to follow when I get done.

Well, SOE apparently has been working on them in what seems to be popularity of the class. For warriors, they can't wear most types of plate and you have trolls for regen, so that doesn't help. Trolls also have more stats where warrs need them, as do ogres. However, Iksar warriors are a fine choice, as the natural AC and agi of them FAR offsets the fact that they can't wear most plate, unless that plate has some nice stats, of course...

Anyways, They have ALL of them done and loaded into the servers but, apparently, the warrior ones. Who knows? Perhaps there's something that no one's thought of doing, like turning in your mancatcher at the war baron for the next quest or something...

Despite the fact that this post is 5 1/2 years old, I'm gonna go ahead and reply anyway: I think he was talking about the fact that the necros and the others aren't really big fans of each other. They tolerate each other, but that's pretty much it.

The developer who fixed the quest also said that this was the last in the series, but he did have plans to add more later.

RE: Upgrade?
# Mar 19 2001 at 9:57 AM Rating: Default
Ooops, hit enter too soon! lol Anywaqys, Not sure if anyone has seen anything for anything further, but would be nice if this went one or two more steps. Only reason I say this is that the SK weapon goes on for about 2 more steps (?) and in the end, it is a MUCH finer weapon ( 12/25 a load of stats etc). Far be it from me to have SK envy, hell, I think they deserve such a fine weapon...but would love to see the Pike/Mancatcher thing extended a bit...a lot of dropped weapons far outshine thsi, but if there were hopes of one or two more upgrades, then we're talkin! Thoughts?

Here is the text I got completing the recommendation quests and getting the actual plans:

[Sun Mar 04 20:52:44 2001] Warlord Hikyg says 'What?!! You crushed all the shields!! You croak-faced skulking brute!! You don't deserve to be in my garrison!! I am going to recommend you for a promotion in hopes that you will be sent to hunt dragons and meet your end!

[Sun Mar 04 22:32:07 2001] Warlord Vyzer says 'Great job, Trooper Korkorus . Such a warrior would serve the empire better as a legionnaire and not a trooper. I shall recommend you for the rank of legionnaire.

[Mon Mar 05 21:37:14 2001] Warlord Geot says 'Very good. I cannot see any reason a warrior like you should waste their time on the patrols of a trooper. I shall recommend you for a promotion. I hope the War Baron agrees.

[Mon Mar 05 21:53:12 2001] War Baron Eator takes away your pike and hands you plans not for a pike head, but for the crown of another polearm. 'It is time to wield the weapon of a true warrior of the legion. You have done well, legionnaire Korkorus !'

I haven't discovered anything new, but i am gonna spam Iksar Warrior GM's with possible keyphrases.

Smithing the head was trivial at 60 skill and i did it in 1 try, but the polearm itself took about 6 tries at 60 skill and was not trivial. Thankfully the materials are quite cheap. If you fail to make the mancatcher you will get back the head, but lose both the forging hammer and steel rod.

Here are the confirmed trivial levels according to the Tradeskill Window:

Soldier's Pike Head (15)
Trooper's Pike Head (15)
Legionnaire's Mancatcher Crown (15)

The Pikes and Mancatcher trivials didn't show up even after the weapon combines were successful.

The Legionnaire's Mancatcher wasn't trivial at (115).

You can buy it near the bank in Cab. just leave the bank turn right enter the first door you see the nice lizard lady there sold one to me for 7pp and some change I did have 25 chr forgot to unequip things so it shouldn't cost you too much there.

Now I have to endure people asking me where I got the "wurmslayer"! It's actually a shame that neither the mancatcher nor the wurmslayer can go in the secondary slot, because people would freak out if it looked like you were dual-weilding them.

Note: At 102 blacksmithing, the head was trivial, but forging the mancatcher itself was NOT!
# Jan 26 2001 at 6:41 AM Rating: Default
I finished this quest a few days ago on the Cazic Thule server, so it is indeed working now. Making the crown was trivial to me but making the completed pike was not trivial, but I did succede on the 1st try. My smithing skill is @ 102.

Is there text to lead you to believe there's another step up? It's a nice pike but at the level range you get it not exactly amazing.

I was SO happy that the quest was finally fixed and that it worked that I forgot to check and see if there was any leads for another pike. (Is Cyrz the poster of this question?) If anyone does complete the quest and finds out about another pike, please post it. =)

I completed the Mancatcher with a Smithing skill of 34...maybe i was lucky..i had to try twice, but i made it the second time.

I am also hoping there is another upgrade...while i am proud of my pike and i like the MR...its far too heavy and it sucks as a useable weapon.

it DOES look nice wielded though. :)

I fiannly found the Third Head and made my Trooper`s pike and am now headed to the same quest as you folks have finished. is there a good set spot to kill froggies to get the Kurp Froggies to Pop ? or is it all random hope and just kill killkill? the further away from the Nasty Quest Frog the Better. 8^) ( durgaz & Uulmpjk ).
thanks for your time,

The krup gurads will spawn in one of the huts on the first platform of frogtown. going up the ramp, its the second or third on your right. There are typically 3-4 frogs in there, and somewhat higher than the run of the mill types (sometimes ton warriors etc). Just keep that hut cleared and krups will eventually spawn.

I never hunted them in the froglok village - I got all 4 of mine to spawn where the necro frog is Dugroz, just kill all the other spawns and leave him alone.

Unfortunately this option could be more dangerous than the frog village as of late. Black Ravengers have been showing up in these caves alot lately, they lvl 55 warrior mobs, ran into one today on my way into this cave. Just a heads up.

Dugroz is a necro (powerful) frog with a skeleton pet. He conned blue to my 33 Iksar so I tried to take him out, but he resisted all my spells and slaughtered me. You better be at least level 40 if solo.

Up the waterfall in the cave. When entering you'll see another cave above you and to your right. You can walkup a path that takes you up there to this cave, kill the frogs that are stationary - all can be fought 1 at a time pretty much in the 1st hallway. (if you get to a big open area w/ some iksar you passed the cave you're looking for.

This quest still broke?
RE: Broke?
# Dec 30 2000 at 10:44 AM Rating: Default
Try but petition a GM when you do it the pike is irrplaceable they would have to replace it I think.

RE: Broke?
# Jan 04 2001 at 3:12 AM Rating: Default
I had a GM replace my pike and my 3 recommendations and was told not to do the quest again until I was told the quest has been fixed. If you want to know if it's broke or not I would recommend you do the quest in the WW zone and get that refference from the 4 gobo warlord warbeads, because it's easy to do. Then take that letter and give it to the iksar warrior guild leader and if he gives you that bribery message and doesn't acknowledge the item properly then it's still broken.
RE: Broke?

Currently Broken
# Nov 22 2000 at 4:33 PM Rating: Decent
Was tried on the test server when the krup guards were added, and the War Baron didn't aknowledge the return of the recommendations.

Currently on live servers, turning in a recommendation doesn'r generate a quest response, just the generic bribery message...
RE: Currently Broken

I tried this myself on 12/18/00. I turned in all 3 of my recommendations along with my Trooper Pike and I got the same bribery messages.
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 12 2000 at 3:09 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I think I can speak for everyone on this topic. Please people when you know that someone has been camping for a long time, don't pester them about when they are going to leave. Don't sit down next to them to "wait" until they are done. You might be waiting a long time and then the time it takes for you to complete your camp on top of that. The NPC will always respawn and will always be there. Just ask them kindly if they will send you a tell when they are done and 9 times out of 10 they will. These players are tired from camping that long of a period and quite understandably a little grouchy and become extremely nervous at the thought of someone possibly stealing their kill. So, be courteous.
#Anonymous, Posted: Nov 21 2000 at 7:30 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) YES... Please show some courtesy and STOP SPAMMING every post that comes in with that message.

Has anyone else noticed that this post is on every topic? I mean of course be courteous, but for the love of god, DON'T SPAM THE MESSAGE BOARDS, BE COURTEOUS SO PEOPLE DON'T HAVE TO READ THIS A DOZEN TIMES. Thank you for your time.

RE: Starts where?
# Sep 16 2000 at 3:38 PM Rating: Decent
This Quest starts at War Baron Eator in the Cabilis Warrior Guild.

After you Return the Memory of Sebilis to him he asks something (don't recall what he says), and after more talk he tells you to go to the Warlords in the Swamp, Lake and Woods garrisons and "say "trooper reporting for duty". You will then get a quest from each, when you finish them you get a recommendation. Return the 3 Recommendations + your Trooper Pike to War Baron Eator and you probably receive the Legionnaire Pike Head plans.

Of course, noone seems to have found the three heads for the Trooper Pike Quest as of yet so, hehe : )
RE: Starts where?
# Oct 07 2000 at 2:21 AM Rating: Default
Apparently now the Troopers Pike Quest has been completed. Unfortunatly it seems to be broken. Turning in the three heads and your pike will get you the Soldiers Pike Head Plans again. That's right I said Soldiers not Troopers. I haven't completed the quest myself yet, but I got this from the message board in the troopers pike quest section. I'm very disappointed. Hopefully its not true. But anyway there is info there on how to obtain all three heads.
RE: Starts where?
# Nov 20 2000 at 5:34 PM Rating: Default
The three heads are obtained from killing froglok outlanders. Hire a ranger or druid to track them for you.
