How I avoided the guards....
# Jan 15 2007 at 7:18 AM Rating: Decent
As a DE Rogue w/ unfavorable faction with the Butcherblock guards....I entered the BB zone from Greater Faydark. Avoided all the guard posts along the way to the chessboard. There is a guard post between the chessboard and tower but can be easily avoided. Hope this helps....

Just my 2 cents...make sure to go into the tower first and run around...didn't want to complete next stage at first but running around in the tower should do it. then go kill the 4 enraged skellies...spawn timer is around 5 mins tops. Overall a very easy quest for the gear given

I give this one a definate 10 fer 10.

You get a pretty good item and the quest is very easy to complete. Only difficulty you might have is in finding the tower with the Skeletons. If you've downloaded a BB map this task will be done in about half hour tops. Only cause it takes time to run from the PoK Book to the Chessboard and from the Chessboard to the tower.
Pretty Easy

Once you go into the tower - you will need to kill 4 enraged dwarf skeletons.

They were super easy for my "newb" group of 4 - experienced players on a new server w/o gear - at level 9/11 ish.

Should have ran into the tower first and got the first part of the task completed - we cleared the Enraged Dwarf Skellies, then went into the tower, at that point it told us we needed to kill 4 of the enraged - should have bolted in there first, hehe

Overall, a real easy quest to get a fair armor item, considering what we started with :)

Castlen is a Vah Shir standing due North of the Soulbinder at -98 -45 -156 in PoK. The quest itself took less than a half hour and the mobs involved were generally blue, white or yellow to my 10th level shaman who soloed it (he has minor twinkage - a Bloodstained Tunic and some jewelry).

Couple hints for newbies: 1) approach the SE corner of the Chessboard for your first stage - there are rarely mobs there; 2) approach the Tower high along the NORTH wall from the east and go nearly behind it; 3) Keldyn Dunfire occasionally runs past the tower, so if you don't like adds, stay up on the SOUTH side, across from the tower when pulling.
