Borso may be found at +1090, +620, -275.

You say, 'Hail, Borso'

Borso says 'Hello dear customer. What can Borso do for you today? I have many fine and exquisite objects that I am sure will delight you. Obviously a creature with refined tastes such as yours can easily see the [quality] of the goods I offer.'

You say, 'Quality?'

Borso says 'Yes, yes. All of my offerings are of the highest quality. Why look at this sarken pelt obtained from the outer planes. Though long extinct, you would not guess this by the color and texture of the hide. Why it looks like it was just taken from the sarken this morning! I guarantee that all of my [offerings] are of the highest quality! Not at all like that scoundrel [Tellen] who hawks goods not fit for the trash heap.'

You say, 'Tellen?'

Borso says 'Yes, Tellen, the knave who owns the large center stall. He is always working to steal my customers or malign my reputation. Why he's even gone so far as to claim that I deal in stolen goods! The fool! It's past time I taught him a [lesson] in manners.'

You say, 'What lesson?'

Help me beat Tellen at his own game.

I don't want his supplies to be replenished. The less he has to sell, the happier I'll be. You can do this by stopping his runners from resupplying his stall.

While you're at it, I want you to `borrow' some of the goods on display at his tent. The chests that I want are sitting on top of his counter. But beware, do not pilfer tyhem if a guard is close!

You have been assigned the task 'A Shop Keeper's Delight'.

Kill 20 Supply Runners 0/20 - Relic
Loot 4 Supply Crate for Tellen from Supply Runners 0/4 - Relic
Steal from Tellen 0/10 - Relic
Deliver 4 Supply Crate for Tellen to Borso 0/4 - Relic
Deliver 10 Tellen's Trinket Chest to Borso 0/10 - Relic

Your task 'A Shop Keeper's Delight' has been updated.

I can't wait for the look on his face when he finds his merchandise for sale at my stall! Why I'm feeling so good I might even offer it to him at a discount! Hahahaha!
You gain party experience!!

Rewards are Borso's Prized Earring for melees and hybrids and Borso's Prized Ring for casters and priests.

watch out for supply runners while doing thefts

When you're waiting for the Tellengards to be far enough away to let you steal a chest, either be invisible, or watch out for arriving supply runners. If they see you they'll aggro, and that will aggro the guards, which aggro the shoppers, so it gets really ugly...

Okay, question....it let me take the tasks and I am only level 65. Will it let me do the turn in and get the rewards or will it eat my stuff? I realize I can't wear the stuff for another 3 levels, but I figure I can get it outta the way.

When I did this for my Pally I had my druid with me and when a chest popped I would cast evac and just before it hit I would click on the chest get the item and pop back at zonein. Then its just a quick run back to the shop and wait for the next chest to spawn.

So if you have access to someone with evac thats another option.

I did this on my druid, without ever evaccing, invising, etc.

Quite simply, just wait til the guards are away from that part of the counter.

Did not get aggro once.

For the advanced class, use Feign Death. :-) The two minute timer to clear aggro is about right for the respawn on the chest, and you avoid those pesky supply runners that show up now and then.

I'd also like to add that I felt really guilty about pilfering these chests, so I tried giving one of them back to a Tellengard. He told me he has no use for it, so I guess it's okay then! :-)

Different quest requirements
# Aug 28 2006 at 12:37 PM Rating: Decent
I was helping a friend and decided to get mission for fun myself. Playing an anguish geared pally. I got slightly different mission requirements.

1: Kill 20 supply Runners
2: Loot 4 supply crates
3: Steal from Tallen
4: Deliver 4 supply crates to Borso
5: Deliver 10 Tallen's tirnket chest to Borso
6: Explore the small magma platform (DIFFERENT)
7: Kill 2 creatures near the small magma platform (DIFFERENT)
8: Explore the small Glacial Platform (DIFFERENT)
9: Destroy 2 creatures near the small Glacial platform (DIFFERENT)
10: ???
11: ???

I will finish up the quest tonight and see if there is a different reward.

I got the mission at the same time as my friend a 70th shammy but he got the regular quest. I have also done this mission on 3 other chars and never seen the different mission.

EDIT: I finished killing the supply runners and did NOT kill any of the mobs at the 2 sm platforms and the quest updated normally and i got the reward. I am guessing that it was slightly bugged. (shrug) I got reward ok which is what matters.

You didn't get a different mission. You are seeing bleed thru from another quest. For some reason, the quest window does this...I've had it happen a lot over various toons. You (or another character) on your account must have the quest from the W Freeport guy below the Arcstone portal.

Chest spawn time
# Jul 06 2006 at 11:40 PM Rating: Decent
Time between spawns of small chests is roughly 2 minutes, and have 3 potential spawn points. Due to random pathing of Tellengards sometimes they are a pain and seem to hover around one chest. Still, did all the stealing in under an hour. Just be patient.
cannot be mezzed (a tellengard)

just wanted to add that the tellengards can't be mezzed
and when you "steal" from Tellen there is one small chest sitting on top of the counters, what you do is pick them up with left click (click off invis first) and this will update your task. respawn time on the small chest is about 1min 45sec.

Watch for Supply Runners
# May 14 2006 at 9:44 AM Rating: Default
Was stealing the chest and backed off toward entry and got attacked by a Supply Runner that was heading to Tellens counter. Had Exodus so NP. Also the Tellenguard are indifferent con so no need for invis. I tried picking up the chest while invis and was unable to, needed to take off invis first.
stealing
# Apr 13 2006 at 10:29 AM Rating: Decent
I watched a couple try to steal the chests and both got pounded. The key as stated before is patience.
You can wait away from the counter by the pillars and will easily be out of agro range. Wait for the Tellengards to be at least a counter away from the chest and you can move in quickly, right click and back out.
It took about 10 min. The chests repop quickly in less than a minute.
An interesting note: The scrykin shoppers didnt agro on me but when a necro agroed the tellen gard, I saw the shopper agro on him also.

I just did this task for my Warrior and was super easy, actually kind of a joke but most of PoR seems to be like that when it comes to loot.

Anyways I did the work myself being a 70 Druid and just had Warrior in group so he got the updates. For the stealing part just be patient and wait for the guards to move. I was able to get them all while invis without one single agro. They have a small agro range from what I saw.

FD stealing
# Mar 09 2006 at 4:03 PM Rating: Decent
A necro guildmate of mine used FD by the small chests. He was able to pick them up without the guards agroing even when they were standing right near him.

Stealing made easy

If your haveing issues with getting them looted while avoiding agro what i did since i was impatient is to gank one then run off the edge and end up in freeport then just port back and zone in. Prolly takes longer but if your aware that the option is there to do it that way then atleast you might die less. Oh ya and fyi if you have lev on and run over the edge as soon as theres no ground under the mobs that have agro on you they will warp on you so make sure you click it off to help ya fall faster or youll die in mid air.

A common error is to try opening the two large chests on the floor. They are not relevant for this task (I know - I tried several times myself :-) )
Some small chests pops on the tables of Tellen's stand. They are the target. You have to grab them when all three Tellenguards are away from you. It might require a little patience to wait for them to move to the other side, but they will do it eventually.

A good place to kill the supply runners is direct south of ZI from Archstone. It is a corner around loc (150, 750) - you can see it from the ZI.

The supply runners pops in this corner, and no mobs wanders close enough to aggro if you stay close to the corner.

Just wait invis for the next pop, and aggro it before it comes too close to the mobs in the open area.

Supply runners hits for 1150, but are fully slowable. They are also easy to root-rot.
