    You say, 'Hail, Yiln Darksly'

    Yiln Darksly looks up at you and tries to talk, but instead coughs up a large amount of water. He is soaking wet and covered in sand. 'Those damned [trolls]! They stole everything and destroyed my ship! The House] will have my head over this!' Yiln coughs violently.

    You say, 'what house'

    Yiln Darksly says ''I work for a trading house run by a group of nobles in Neriak. They are not known for being too forgiving when their [valuables] are lost''

    You say, 'what valuables'

    Yiln Darksly says ''We were hauling many things. The one thing in particular that I am worried about was a trunk full of tomes. I do not know what they were about exactly, but my masters explicitly told me not to let them leave my sight.' Yiln coughs. 'I have got to find those tomes!' Yiln tries to move but yells out in excruciating pain. I cannot get up. You must go to Paineel and find [Jerith]. Tell him I sent you and tell him about Osaftars. You will be rewarded well for your time. If you recover the books bring them back to me.''

    You say, 'who is Jerith'

    Yiln Darksly says ''Jerith works for me. He
    sells many of the items that I acquire in my travels. He also is familiar with many of the pirates that sail the seas attacking merchant ships. He should hopefully know what to do.''

    head to Paineel and find Jerith

    You say, 'who is Osaftars'

    Jerith says 'Osaftars did you say? Jerith knows this name. Osaftars is a scourge of the seas. He takes what he wants and does what he wants. He is a captain of a ship. Yes, Jerith does believe the ship's name was the Stormwave. It can probably be found in the port town of [Dulak].'

    You say, 'where is Dulak?'

    Jerith says 'Dulak is a pirate town on the island of Broken Skull Rock. A dangerous place. There is a ship that Jerith has taken to get there from the shores of the Stonebrunt Mountains.'

    head to Dulak's and hunt the Stormwave till the Trunk of Missing Tomes drops.

    head back to the Overthere and hand the trunk to Yiln Darksly

    Yiln Darksly looks a bit better now, having cleaned most of the sand from his body and drying off a bit. 'I hope you made those pirate scum pay with their lives! When I get back to Neriak, I assure you that my first priority will be planning my revenge. You're lucky, this item washed up on shore from the wreckage of my ship. You can have it. Farewell.'

    Maybe I'm just crabby...

    Why don't most quests reward you with something decent once in awhile? This necklace is crap for a 30th level character. It doesn't even sell for crap. I get more XP from killing the mob holding the damn trunk than the turn in. AND I get more plat from two kills of the same.

    Very interesting faction hits on this in my opinion. Some may value that.

    36 ranger went whole way invis and got no response from hail. Gave him box and he replies: I have no need for this you can have it back. Guess only dark races can do it now?

    Don't bother hailing him. Just give him the trunk. I just did it with my 51 Vah Shir bard (while invis, just in case faction plays a part, because he was dubious) and got the necklace, XP, and faction.

    Turned in one of these with my 44 Cleric and got 5% exp. Not to bad, shame there a lore item :)
    The necklace sells to a merchat for a little over 7pp also.

    I'm a ranger, a little worried about turning in the tomes. I was KOS, coned scowl, invised up and handed in the trunk,invis never dropped and I got the necklace. Just happened on the trunk while in Dulak.

    I just did this quest. Used POK portal to the Overthere and ran north to the water and swam around. It is not the first dock (where boat comes in) but the beyond the second dock where you will find Yin sitting at the waterline enjoying the stink from the harbor! The location is +2841 +3270.

    I stayed inviz all the way including for the turn in. The spirits awarded me the necklace and a half blue of exp as a level 47 froglok shaman.

    Good Hunting!

    What i would add to the above post is that as a Ranger and invis i could not prompt any response from the NPC. He would not respond to any hail or other portion of the quest text.

    So i just handed him the box. I got my Exp, faction and Necklace.

    Killed Ostafars several times....and was able to loot the trunk of missing tomes with a mule I had there....he won't reward a level 5 with anything but a smug comment.."How did someone as inexperienced as you come by this? I'll see it gets to its rightful owner'

    As a Barbarian Shaman attempting the quest, I wasn't sure if I could do it due to faction. I tried anyways and I found Yiln sitting by water under the first boat to the right of the docks (looking towards land from water). Conned him, after canceling invis, and he conned dubious. I got the chest ready on my cursor and ran up and gave it to him. Got the item, faction, and xp like normal.

    Yiln was a little hard to find; but i found him hiding under the first boat to the right of the docks. if you already have the trunk of missing tomes, just hail him and give him the trunk; the side trip to paineel isn't nessecary.
