    This is the final task in a series of four. It begins with Pezripisid at location -1160, +555 in Sunderock Springs (in a tent at the north end of the Crusade camp).

    At the end of the previous task:

    Pezripisid says 'Fewer griffins will mean fewer of my people killed. That's not something I'll ever be [sorry] about.'

    You say, 'Sorry?'

    Pezripisid says 'Being sorry won't bring him back. Being sorry doesn't stop Dyn`leth's armies from slaughtering more of my brothers and sisters of the Scale. If you feel strongly about my loss, here's what you can do to help.'

    You have been assigned the task 'Violence Begets Violence'.

    When you spoke to Pezripisid earlier, it got him thinking. He wants to destroy the future of Dyn`Leth's soldiers and the only effective way to accomplish this involves finding out what plans they have in store. Someone in Dyn`Leth's employ must know of his latest plans, and the most likely individual would be the Overseer. Pezripisid wants you to seek out the Overseer in Ashengate, beat him within an inch of his life and then follow up the beating with as many whip lashings as it takes until he talks. When you have procured this information, Pezripisid wants you to return to him so he can plot your next move.

    Kill Overseer Lhazetius's four bodyguards - Ashengate, Reliquary of the Scale
    Beat Overseer Lhazetius within an inch of his life - Ashengate, Reliquary of the Scale
    Finish off Overseer Lhazetius - Ashengate, Reliquary of the Scale
    Deliver the Sealed Battle Plans to Pezripisid - Sunderrock Springs
    Speak to Pezripisid - Sunderrock Springs

    You're given a Knotted Whip of Coercion to perform the flaying. Once Overseer Lhazetius is under 10%, you get the task update for beating him within an inch of his life. You can begin whipping him by equipping the Knotted Whip of Coercion and clicking it with him targeted. Once the whipping is complete, he'll cry for mercy and then give you Sealed Battle Plans.

    Pezripisid breaks the seal on the battle plans and quickly scans the documents.

    Your task 'Violence Begets Violence' has been updated.
    You gain experience!!

    (Is there a character flag received at the end of this quest series?)

    You do not get a task update just for getting Overseer Lhazetius below 10%. Instead you just have to (carefully) damage Overseer to low health, have the Knotted Whip of Coercion equipped in primary, and click it 5 times on him. The 5 clicks (or sometimes only 4) are what updates the step "Beat Overseer Lhazetius within an inch of his life" 0/5. Do not melee Overseer with the whip. Only click. After the 5th whip click you will receive the item "Sealed Battle Plans" on your cursor. Then you finish him off by killing him. More than one player character can do the whip clicking at the same time to update their task.

    For high level types, remember to turn off damage shields, put pets on hold. Also the whip of coercion injures him. I stopped main damage at 6%. After whipping him twice he was dead. Had to wait til respawn to continue. Also the whip has to be equipped to work.

    Yes you do recieve a character flag upon finishing the 4th quest in this quest line

    you have recieved a charcter flag!

    in personal text you see

    Though grateful for your help, pezripisid becomes more sullen than ever, realizing that his hatred and need for vengeance has sparked further animosity from Dyn`leth's legions. He is giving up his quest for retribution, as he discovered, too late, that violence begets more violence.

    quest purpose
    # Aug 12 2008 at 9:20 AM Rating: Decent
    These quest are really more for faction to gain access to raid in AG. The loot is just that, Loot and for raiders more or less trash. I would not bother farming these unless you are just looking for exp and Faction

    It is part of progression for some of the TSS raid zones,

    Maybe... heres a thought... Like Treddlehoops Monocle it could be part of progression. Seems fitting for the how hard the tasks were to complete, even the name suggests a greater purpose

    /agree - it's damned hard to fight to the eggtenders. A group that is capable of fighting till that spot and camp threr till named spawns is in most cases fully anguish geared, i.e. reward is destroyed
