You say, 'More?'

Zermak says 'Da armor in dat book is nice an' all, but dey could be better. Mebbe I give you patterns for reinforcements if you do some tings to prove yerself. I got some other patterns, but you prolly not ready for all of dem yet. I give you patterns dependin on what you can do in [Highpass], [Lower Guk], [Old Sebilis] an' da [valley] beyond Lavastorm.'

Blessed Impressions (Troll) (Replaces Former Journeyman quest)
screenshot of quest log

Onjective Instructions					|Status|	Zone 
Kill 20 Froglok Gaz 					 0/20 		Upper Guk 
Make impressions of the Froglok Gaz head patterns.	 0/5		Upper Guk 
Kill 10 Crag Spiders					 0/10		East Karana 
Make impressions of the Crag Spider carapaces.		 0/2		East Karana 
Deliver the Impression Book to an Artisan of your race	 0/1		ALL

reward: Blessed Book of Troll Culture (for lvl 15 symbols/armor)

the "make impressions" steps is randomly updated when you kill a creature for the task. will update last step when i find out what it is

it would appear that if someone's pet gets the kill off a mob, it negates the chance for the "impression" step to occur. so you may want to have your/group's pets backoff when the mobs get at low health.

Ive now killed over 500 spiders, and the only time i have yet to see any arachnid eye cluster, was while on a DoN instanced mission. I looted the arachnid eye clusters that were dropping, and they did not get counted towards my quest.

Anyone else get this book yet?
Lavaspinner spiders

You can kill any lavaspinner spider for the GM step one I killed some green cons in lavastorm by druid portal and it counted them, so the collect 80 thing is gonna be the major hang up.

kill 120 lavaspinners~~~fairly easy, just time consuming.
Loot 80 Arachnid eye clustersafter killing over 300 spiders, have not seen one of these drop yet. Was killing everything in Lavaspinners Lair. someone told me to try the instanced zone, and kill those spiders, they might be more common.

I think the next part is deliver 4 arachnid eye clusters, and then you get to continue the quest

So far, the instanced Lavaspinner's Lair zone is the only one I've found to drop the Arachnid Eye Cluster.

Giving position is good but it's always better to add a beacon... In this case, Zermak is located next to the Brew barrel behind the bar

The Dungeon of Naheulbeuk awaits at

The Quest NPC (Zermak) is at neg547 and neg420 in the Neriak Foreign Quarter (as Boglog says above). That is in the Shaman's section of the Troll Guild building (up the hill and to the right of the bank).

*grin* I never was very good at the location by numbers thing ;)

Quest was: (1) to kill 20 Gnolls in HH and loot 4 Rain Waters, then (2) to kill 10 Smugglers and loot 1 Human Blood (also in HH). This runs using the task system so I suspect that there are other quests possible of about the same difficulty.
