Find Borso in Relic at location +1086, -614.

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, 'What 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, 'What offerings?'

Borso says 'I have many unique and interesting items from all manner of creatures through out the planes. Here is a charm from a tiny creature known as a leprechaun that is supposed to bring the wearer great luck. And here is the fiery heart from a greater magma spirit. Not interested in those? Well it seems you have caught me at a bad time for my [suppliers] have been slow to reach me.'

You say, 'What suppliers?'

Borso says 'Yes, they are several days late and I'm afraid that Tellen may have bought their loyalty. But I won't let him defeat me this easily. I have a venture for you if you are [willing].'

You say, 'I am willing.'

Borso says 'Yes, as I mentioned earlier, the stocks of my usual wares has run nearly dry so I will pay you handsomely for your assistance in replenishing my supplies. Upon the mysterious and shrouded hills of Arcstone will you find all that I seek.'

You have been assigned the task 'The Needy'.

Directions to Borso

Borso is in relic. When you zone in follow the wall to left and it leads to a doorway in to a big room. He's right across the room and a bit to the left.

I was snooping around trying to find Borso, used the loc listed above, did not find him. Is he on a upper level? Any help would be appreciated.

He's not at upper level, because I got the quest before going up there =)

Not sure of his exact location, but I think it might be among the other merchants and questgivers.

Thinking of doing this quest but Im a little confused about the turn in. Do you do each step and then turn in the 4 items or do wait till you have all 12 and turn them in at once?

You could do it either way. The trick is for each step, turn in the 4 items unstacked. This will update your task. Once you turn in the final 4 items (they don't have to be done in order), you'll get the loot.

Keep in mind that since this is a solo task everyone in the group needs to get it. I did this as a pickup with other ppl and I took 5 of the 6 of us over to get the mission. Once we got started we just divvied out the loots until we all got our drops then moved on to the next step. Ppl were telling me thx for showing them the zones and stuff as they hadnt been there much before. I just read about it and was in one other grp in Arcstone before so I was kind of new also.
We were your average non-raider melee heavy grp with a shaman slowing and healing. Bard,Pally,war,SK,shaman,necro of average lvl 69 and we did just fine. The thing is to just be patient and work together and its no problem. The SK tried soloing some of the horses and did a couple while the rest of us were in Relic, but you can pretty much assume that nothing is soloable in this zone. So get a group of some kind and hit each of the different camps and get your shopkeeper items

This is a pretty easy quest for anyone lvl 55-70. (However, best to go at about 68 so you can get everything)

The Quest is mostly soloable if you're raid-geared but it's not too hard to get a group to find looking to do this same quest.

Nice Ring for Melee and for Caster, very simple, I did this in 2 hours while doing the Charm at the same (55hp/mana/end).

Easier than DoDHs and actually better than the 68-69 series. (Ring of Dark Mists can match this)

No, I've done this quest 3 times on my mains and helped tons of friends so I know it quite well. I tried it on my 60 Pally and the NPC won't give me the quest.

Saying you can do it from 55-70 is just making a statement without knowing the facts.
