    Agent Tiesh may be found at +1200, -1000. He spawns once the wars have been completed.

    You say, 'Hail, Agent Tiesh'

    Agent Tiesh says 'Ahh...yes, I've read reports about you. Always showing up here and there across Luclin. Not always under the best circumstances though, eh? No matter. I need someone who can get [things done]. I'm not looking for a saint.'

    You say, 'Get what things done?'

    Agent Tiesh says 'I've been collecting information on the Grimlings and a disturbing pattern is emerging. Although the military-minded Vah Shir are focused on the Grimling battle strength, I fear there is something else growing in the [dark depths] of those caverns.'

    You say, 'What dark depths?

    Agent Tiesh says 'There is a legend of a Vah Shir name Khati Sha. He was one of my people's first great heroes. An explorer and leader, he mysteriously disappeared long ago. I have the unsettling feeling that this war will uncover the [secret] of his disappearance.'

    You say, 'What secret?'

    Agent Tiesh says 'I believe that Khati Sha is somehow wrapped up in the past and present of the Grimlings. There are tales of a 'Legend of Lies' amongst the common Grimlings...a secret history kept by their elite. If you are willing to help, go into the deep caverns and search out this text. If we can find it, we may be able to unravel the truth of the Grimling past.'

    Legend of Lies drops from named grimlings throughout Acrylia Caverns. Bring it back to him.

    Agent Tiesh says 'This is disturbing. Is there no corner of place or time that the Shissar have not tainted? I must know more. The Vah Shir people must know the truth of their [hero].'

    He hands you back the Legend of Lies.

    You say, 'Hero?'

    Agent Tiesh says 'I must try and collate this legend with the rest of the information. I must ask you an enormous favor. Will you go and search for more information? I can give you no better direction but to hunt the snake men. The text of 'ledgers and testaments'...perhaps the Shissar have some record of the event. Take this [summary scroll].'

    You say 'Summary scroll?'

    Agent Tiesh says 'It has a magic on it that will encode any text put into it, hiding meaning in confusion. See if you can track down the answers we need. Return to me when you have sealed the scroll, when you've found all the answers you can. I fear, however, that the final answer may only be found when we find Khati Sha himself...or whatever remains of him.'

    He gives you the Summary Scroll 4-Slot container. You must have the Ledger of Lies in your inventory for him to respond to this prompt.

    Testament of Night drops from Shissar Assassin in Ssraeshza Temple, Ledger of Pain drops from The Shissar Magister in Ssraeshza Temple, while Mnemonic of Khati Sha drops from Khati Sha the Twisted himself (the final boss in Acrylia Caverns).

    Combine the four books in the Summary Scroll to craft Sealed Summary Scroll. Hand the sealed scroll in to Agent Tiesh for your reward.

    Agent Tiesh says 'Truly incredible, . I only wish that this was just a legend. The war pales in comparison to this treachery. There is too much truth here, too much danger. I fear I've made Luclin an unsafe place for you now. Here, take this as some small consolation. And know you will always have one stalwart ally to call. Good Luck,'

    Your faction standing with VahShir Crusaders has been adjusted by 20.

    Be warned that this quest DOES have a minimum level. Agent Tiesh would not respond to any of the keywords from a level 1, ate my Legend of Lies, and only responded, "I'm afraid you aren't strong enough to survive the rigors of my request." when hailed.

    It shows the minimum level set to 60. Let us know if you can do the turn in at a lesser level.

    Just wonder if the AA run 6 is slower than SOW from this ring?
    Is SOW faster than Run 6
    # Jul 08 2011 at 8:33 AM Rating: Decent
    Effect: Spirit of Wolf
    2: Increase Movement by 30% (L1) to 55% (L50)

    Each point in AA run is 10% speed. So run5+ is comparable or better then SoW.

    You say, 'what things done?'

    Agent Tiesh says 'I've been collecting information on the Grimlings and a distubing pattern is emerging. Although the military-minded Vah Shir are focused on the Grimling battle strength, I fear there is something else growing in the [dark depths] of those caverns.'

    You say. 'What dark depths?

    Agent Tiesh says 'There is a legend of a Vah Shir name Khati Sha. He was one of my people's first great heroes. An explorer and leader, he mysteriously disappeared long ago. I have the unsettling feeling that this war will uncover the [secret] of his disappearence.'

If we can find it, we may be able to unravel the truth of the Grimling past.'


    The "Legend of Lies" is a drop from Grimlings in the Inner Sanctum of Acrylia Caverns.

    Return the Legend of Lies to Agent Tiesh and you get:

    Agent Tiesh says 'This is disturbing. Is there no corner of place or time that the Shissar have not tainted? I must know more. The Vah Shir people must know the truth of their [hero]

    He hands you back the Legend of Lies and a Summary scroll (4 slot container)

    #gynsu, Posted: Oct 02 2004 at 7:04 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Planes of power ruined my EQ experiance. These polesmokers from Verant and Sony cater everythign in this game to EP and Time flagged peeps. Well *** EP and Time theres a large amount of people who could care less about those damn zones because they dont want to have to raid a bajillion hours to git enough dkp to git anything. I have yet to find many Quest items that are decent that doesnt take a huge force to git pieces for it. Ya join a guild....if yer on a small populated server you dont have that choice, and most guilds that dont have requirements to git that are virtually impossible solo....dont have the right people who even want to do any raids of any sort! I wish these *** munchers would take the **** outta there ***'s and finally do something for the people who like to accomplish things in groups not raids!

    1st of al learn how to spell. and 2nd you are very wrong, The Oments of War expansion has plenty of grouping opportunities where you can well equipt yourself and complete great quests. Why do you think they released BoT and HoH for lvl 62 + and Tier 2 for lvl 55+, It was to allow everyone to get a chance to experience more of EQ and enjoy the game. There are many small areas a small guild can go to to raid. Much old world content is now 2 groupable or can be taken with even fewer #s than that imo. So you have NO reason to complain. The LDoN expansion was mainly meant for grouping.

    Grimling War quest bugged?
    # Aug 17 2004 at 9:33 AM Rating: Decent
    I'm on Fennin Ro, and I'm trying to complete the Grimling War in order to spawn Tiesh. Problem is, everytime I do the second camp, it's bugged.

    I clear out the entire camp, including the minimobs in the campfire. Once completed, the grimling spiritchanters, all four around the fire, never become targetable. Eventually they despawn.

    I solo'd the other 8 camps, and this is the last one I need. Please help :/

    Try a point blank Area of effect (PBAoE) spell clerics and druids have nice ones....
    info....???
    # Jun 01 2004 at 10:09 PM Rating: Default
    how long does the person stay in the zone after the war? does she despawn for any reason? or is it like the slave quests the npc stays there forever or until the server resets in which case you have to free the slaves again?
    War still broken?
    # Feb 23 2004 at 3:06 PM Rating: Decent
    Last I heard the Grimling Forest war was broken. Can someone verify this and whether Agent Tiesh spawns after the war is finished?
    RE: War still broken?
    # Mar 27 2004 at 8:03 PM Rating: Good
    On Tunare it's working fine. The key is checking the with General in the building next to the merchs. He will tell you which camps are still occupied by the Grimlings and which they've been kicked out of. One encounter you have to keep a Grimling betrayer alive. All of the camps but the last two can be done with a single group of 60+ who work well together. The first 6 can be done with a 64 bst, and a 62 cleric.... Anyway, the last camp will drop the Medallion of the Hero of Shar Vahl (check my magelo profile below for stats), and once you have pulled your raid (you need 1 person for every hut in the far norther camp, and people enough to take out all the mobs) out of the last camp, the Vah Shir will spawn there. THIS is when the Vah Shir Prospector (perfect acrylia shards), Agent Tiesh, the LT who wants the two sets of captured Grimling Orders (this isn't broken either, there are just THREE sets of orders that drop in IS, and the key orders are VERY rare). Agent Tiesh should spawn on the outside of the cave where the Claw of Khati Shaw will spawn once you kill all the Grimlings in that camp. The LT is on the platform overlooking the camp. The Vah Shir Prospector will be at the mouth of the cave zoning to TM.

    Hope this helps... I do have a parsed log file of us completing the war buried in our guild's forums on the link below if you want to dig through them...
    Leder of Pain
    # Oct 05 2003 at 6:02 AM Rating: Decent
    The Shissar Magister drops the Ledger of Pain. It is listed in the quest text, but not as a related item.

    Killed him yesterday and he dropped it. I looted it after no one could find any info on it. Lucky me, I have to kill Khati Sha now...if I want to bother of course.

    What is the war with the grimlings?
    RE: ?
    # Aug 22 2003 at 5:27 AM Rating: Decent
    There are quests in Grimling Forest that start a bunch of mini wars that can be done with one group, some even soloed. After that, there is a tough boss fight that takes probably a few groups, I dont know, I cant get any of the other mini raids to work right. That final boss is what spawns the agent for this quest.
