You say, 'Hail, Hoshkar'

Hoshkar says 'So, you have found your way into the Veeshan's Peak and into my lair. It has been a long time since I've seen an outlander like you. I should think you'd find the history of our order very entertaining indeed. I should so enjoy telling it. [Would you like to hear it]?'

You say, 'I would like to hear it.'

Hoshkar says 'A long time ago, before the imprisonment of Kerafyrm himself, the Ring of Scale involved all dragons. All of us lived on the Velious continent. As time went on, a differing of ideals perpetuated amongst us. Some of us believed the newly created mortals of this world were something we could control, something that would serve us and our interests. Mortals were weak and ignorant, and easily influenced by our magic and knowledge. Some other dragons thought these mortals were inconsequential to the overall workings of the universe and chose to ignore them and concentrate on the worship of Veeshan, the almighty crystalline dragon. Lines were drawn between dragon kind. Eventually, dragons chose different paths, some the Claws of Veeshan and others chose the Ring of Scale. We of the Ring of Scale decided to come to this continent and settle here, mostly to reduce the [tension] between us and the Claws of Veeshan.'

You say, 'What tension?'

Hoshkar says 'Over time, most of the dragons left behind have calmed, though there are still some who are aggressively against what we stand for. Some of those dragons have taunted me for years and I have much disdain for them. I have an idea. How about you [assist me] in teaching them a lesson? Would you be interested in a task for me?'

You say, 'I will assist you.'

Hoshkar says 'As you must know, we, as dragons, have a sacred law to not harm others like us. This law cannot be broken, for it is a crime that has a severe punishment. As such, I will need you to assist me. Now, I cannot condone any killing of dragons either, so my task entails you acquiring the talismans of specific dragons in Western Wastes. The Sky dragons have taunted me for a very long time, and their most vocal member, Ayillish, has been a thorn in my side for a very long time. Go now and fetch their talismans for me.'

The other Sky dragons are Gafala, Hechaeva, and Mazi. Kill all four and loot their talismans, then return these to Hoshkar:

Hoshkar says, 'You impress me, mortal. I would never have thought you would be fit for this task and now you have proved me wrong. As I said earlier, I cannot condone the killing of other dragons, so I will assume that you acquired these through other methods. If you did slay these dragons however, that does bring a small bit of joy to me. I have one final task for you before we part ways. There is a certain Wyvern that has become an unwelcome outcast in the frozen lands. End his suffering and return proof of the deed to me.'

You receive a 2-slot LARGE container called Hoshkar's Bag of Holding. The wyvern in question is A Wayward Wyvern, a red-con to 65 found inside the wyvern caves in the northeast part of the Western Wastes. It hits for about 900 and casts an AE, Diseased Cloud.

You have slain A Wayward Wyvern!
Your faction standing with Brood of Dizok got better.
Your faction standing with Sarnak Collective got better.
Your faction standing with Goblins of Mountain Death got worse.
You gain experience!!

Once it's dead, loot a Head of a Wayward Wyvern and combine it in the bag to craft a Full Hoshkar's Bag of Holding. Give this to Hoshkar.

Hoshkar says, 'Splendid ______. This Wyvern has been a thorn in my side as long as those Sky dragons have been. You have gained my trust, outlander, and here is your reward. If the reward does not impress you, I have a different one that might. Return that to me if you wish to see it.'

You receive a Wand of the Lava Shaper. If you don't like it, give it back:

Hoshkar says 'How utterly obtuse and arrogant. How about this one then?'

You receive a Bow of the Ring. Returning this gets you the wand again.

sarnak collective faction
# Feb 10 2005 at 8:54 AM Rating: Decent
under faction search it states

To my knowledge, there is nothing you can do to gain faction with Sarnaks.

this is in error because killing in chardok b gives good faction hits with sarnak collective dont think it has any bad faction hits for any quest giving faction either but I have not gone in here very much because the one character I have is so far bad he would have to fight down then have to stay there for even longer just to recoup the faction loss. Also as he is a 66 sk there is no real reward for him from fixing his faction. Too many people just dont seem to bother with veeshan's peak anymore
For the classes without a usable reward.

Too bad that Bards, Monks Beastlords and Berzerkers get no reward out of this (at least that's what is reported so far).

An interesting option would be to add those 4 classes to the caster reward, and maybe add some sort of melee effect to it (cleave, strikethrough, etc), or even (dare I hope) an instrument mod. Even without those changes it'd be a decent ranged (though only the BL would get any help out of the spell focus)
The run down...

Faction does matter on this quest, but only to make unavoidable things easier... Of course you have to take at least 4 faction hits for the 4 sky dragons.

But the wayward wyvern gives no faction hit, Although it is best to be at least non-KoS to CoV as it makes it more difficult camping the wvyern caves when you have to worry about outside agro.

My advice when engaging a wayward wyvern is ALWAYS do it outside the caves.

Oh and for those who didnt know, the fight is made a bit easier due to the fact that a wayward wyvern is in fact UNDEAD. and from any point in the zone he can be sensed with the spell 'Sense the Dead'
AE is 1000ish Disease based and near impossible to resist, It is a debuff/DD/55% slow. It is also a PBAE so people behind him dont get hit by it(normal PBAE rules seem to apply you have to be directly behind him as far as ive seen) Hope this helps guys, It is nice bow.(and wand)

Faction Question.
# Sep 04 2004 at 5:46 PM Rating: Decent
Question to those who have done this quest: Are there faction hits to CoV? Given the mobs involved, I'm assuming yes.

I think the factions listed on this page were meant for the other quest, involving Chardok B. Any futher info?

to the bards then, i didnt mean to overlook them =)
monk / beast ??
# Aug 17 2004 at 4:00 AM Rating: Decent
So of the 6 quest mobs in VP, only 5 yield a reward for monk / beast? I see no other classes similiarly shorted on quests...

Can any monk / beast confirm that there is no reward for us on this quest? I've completed all the others, considering just running through this one as well to see... just doesn't really seem fair somehow if were left out.

Bards don't get this one either.

Where is the Wayward Wyvern?
# Jul 30 2004 at 2:14 PM Rating: Decent
Can anyone post some handy information about the Wayward Wyvern? I checked for him today but didn't see him. Im assuming he is on some sort of Timer perhaps? He is suppose to spawn in the front of the wyvern cave entrance so i dont think he has a PH

I killed the wyvern 3 times the other day with a group. Each time he was in a different spawn spot inside the caves.

Safe to say is random anywhere in the cave.

Took 1-2 clearings at most for each spawn for us

Screwed again?

Bards, Monks, Beasts and Zerkers don't get a reward they can use? Craptastic!

Must be a third reward? Or are we screwed?
