Ulan Meadowgreen is located (119, -2192) in the centaur encampment in South Karana.

You say, 'Hail, Ulan Meadowgreen'

Ulan Meadowgreen says 'Greetings. I am Ulan Meadowgreen of the family Meadowgreen. My brother and I are the best armorers in all of Norrath. We craft [armor] for the bravest warriors in the land. If you are a warrior of renown, and are interested in our armor, I have some mighty [labors] you might wish to attempt for me.'

You say, 'What labors?'

Ulan Meadowgreen says 'Only those who can prove themselves mighty warriors deserve to wear our crafted armor. While my brother prefers trophies, I seek instead tasks which will help my craft and my people.'

You say, 'What armor?'

Ulan Meadowgreen says 'I smith [bracers], [greaves], [pauldrons] and [breastplates]. My brother Shakrn smiths helms, gauntlets, boots and vambraces.'

You say, 'What greaves?'

Ulan Meadowgreen says 'Years ago, a necromancer most foul terrorized the people of the Karanas. This wretch stole a [circlet] father was smithing for my sister. It was very easy to recognize - shining silver like the light of dawn breaking. I have heard rumors that this necromancer has settled in the depths of Najena. Return this circlet to me and gift me with two [star rubies], and I will reward you with crafted greaves.'

You say, 'What circlet?'

Ulan Meadowgreen says 'The circlet my father forged was of the finest silver, ready to be enchanted by our more magical cousins. It is a shame we never had the chance to finish the work.'

Star Rubies may be purchased from several merchants. The Dark Circlet drops from Trazdon who may be found near the Bonecracker room in Najena.

Upon handing in two star rubies and the Dark Circlet:


Ulan Meadowgreen says 'Wait, ______, are you not forgetting something?'
Ulan Meadowgreen says 'Wait, ______, are you not forgetting something?'
Ulan Meadowgreen says 'Is this.. it is! I did not recognize it at first, but this is indeed the circlet my father once crafted. It seems to have been enchanted since. Take these crafted greaves with my thanks for a job well done.'
You gain experience!!

I took down Trazdon several times at level 36 and nothing else aggroed me in the room except for the Ogre Officer and sometimes the Ogre Guard who wanders the hall before Trazdon's room. Except for casting a damage shield on Trazdon, the nearby magician stood by idly while Trazdon got cut down. As a paladin, I found him quite easy to control with a well-timed bash here and there to stop his casting. At level 36 he was plenty solo-able for a paladin, but was still light blue. I have been present for Trazdon's death four times, and he dropped the circlet twice.

You may wonder why a paladin would bother since the circlet is for a warrior quest. On Firiona Vie server, most items are not No-Drop, meaning they can be sold on the market. This seems to be quite sought after, and it sold very fast.

Didn't see this mentioned: The spawn time for either Trazdon or his place holder (magician) is about 20mins. Tranzdon himself is random..I've gotten him twice in a row and I've gotten his PH twice in a row.

Happy Camping

#Anonymous, Posted: Sep 18 2001 at 4:52 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Honestly best way to do it is use the nodrops for the better stats and keep 2 star rubies in your inventory - if you ever get the urge to sell them just turn in the rubies for the crafted, simple : )

Went on in to Traz's room to find 1 magician and pet, Traz and pet, and an ogre. As a 31 warrior (with exe axe and fungi tunic) I was able to solo the spawn with a bub of life left. This should be cakewalk with 30warrior and 30cleric. I helped 2 other ppl get the circlet, Each time the spawn remained exactly the same. Magician on first landing on ramp, Traz at second landing, Ogre officer/guard on third. I read that this is the spawn for the mage quests as well. If so are the items rare because in 4 spawns not 1 item dropped from the mage.

everything in this room is on a twenty minute spawn timer. keep root and stackable DOT spells handy. took me 3 hours for one circlet. trazdon always spawns at the second plateau in the room (only he drops the dark circlet). good luck.

I've done this quest 2 times, and both times it says i'm forgetting something. I gave him the Dark Circlet and 2 Star Rubies in different spots, and it still didn't work. What am i doing wrong?
RE: I'm Pissed also
# Jul 16 2001 at 11:54 PM Rating: Default
You most likely turned them into the wrong guy, there are 2 minotaurs brothers that each make different pieces of crafted
RE: I'm Pissed also
# Jul 13 2001 at 4:04 AM Rating: Decent
might be a dumb question, but were your two star rubies stacked, or un-stacked when you turned them in?
RE: I'm Pissed also
# Jul 23 2001 at 7:47 PM Rating: Decent
Whenever you turn in stackable items you should always turn them in unstacked. It's the safest way to do it.
Got Circlet

Was helping guildy with mages in Najena and we blasted Traz. I looted the circlet only to find it was Nec only, no drop. Glad I can cash it in for something and make a little cash on it.

Killed him several times as my 47 mage while taking out the whole zone looking for my epic peices. he dropped it about 3 out of the 5 times i killed him, but he didn't pop everytime he has the DE mages as PH for him sometimes. extremely easy to get to and the zone isn't too hard if u have the time to walk around and learn for about 10 min if that. my pet solo'ed him np but 1 time i casted my 44 spell on him for 595 dmg and killed him 1 shot so he has under that hp. there are a couple of good maps too eq.atlas i use a lot if i want to explor a zone. good luck and enjoy =)

I wanted to get my wife's level 8 war these legs. A 55 Wiz, I walked down to Trazdon's room (someone above has posted a really nice direction guide, it is perfectly correct), walked in the room, nothing, not even Traz attacked. I hit Traz with 1 Ice Comet, and looted the Dark Circlet. Total time, 5 mins. Enjoy.

Bring along a friend of the same level and you'll be fine. Cleric, druid or shammy would be ideal, although any class will do.

Very easy stuff. Went in killed 2 magicians-rested-killed 2 magicians-rested killed one and then he popped. Jumped him before he could cast any protect spells. Hit me with 4 spells for 150 then he fell. Dropped the circlet and some arm armor. I'm a 36 warrior and it was extremely easy.
circlet rare drop on trazdon now

54 druid,I have been doing this quest it'll run u 1359pp for all gems. Found all gems in Qeynos gem shop. I bound myself in the centaurs village, so when I get item(s) I gate right back and pow have item. Transfer to buddy he gives to my warrior. If u need any info ask here I'll respond

can a 27 wariror do this quest alone?
RE: kaiohshin
# Feb 21 2002 at 8:20 AM Rating: Decent
Highly doubtful this could be done alone by any warrior under 35 unless the room is clear to start with and all you have to deal with is a freshly popped Traz. I suppose maybe lower with some silly twink gear like fungi or CIB.

As for the cost of the crafted complete suit, I do hope that as a 54 Druid you would farm the gems you needed if you were going to twink. Heck, the Seafuries in OOT drop most of them.

If he HTs you then he's a SK, otherwise he's a nec.

killed him last night, started at 700 hp(lvl 48 enc), I nuked him once and he tried to cast fear and his pet attacked, my pet stomped his pet, then stomped him as he tried to cast poison dots. Between the fact that he's using a brown-boned pet at lvl 29 or so, uses poison dots, and doesn't try to HT, I'm pretty sure he's no SK.

RE: Where is he

You get to Trazdon by following this route (presuming I'm not foncused, and remembering it correctly; please correct me if I'm wrong). I don't have the loc, though.

Enter Najena, and take the first left fork. You'll pass a couple skels and elementals. Go through the first door on the left, which has broken off it's hinges. Go down the tunnel into the room. The far wall is illusionary, step around or over the bench. Take the right tunnel from there, and go down the ramp and around the corner. You'll get to a landing with three doors. The left leads immediately to BoneCracker and two fem def necs. The right door opens into a room with some db skels and mentals, and beyond that Officer Gush and the guards, officers, and captain (and the rare visiting priestess). You want to take the middle door, and go left at the first fork (taking the right fork leads to the ogres, from the other side). At the end of the tunnel is a door. The room beyond consists of a ramp with two fem de magicians, and a pit of lava (doesn't burn you to stand in) with some mentals in it. The upper mag is the PH for Trazdon.

#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 12 2000 at 2:55 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I think I can speak for everyone on this topic. Please people when you know that someone has been camping for a long time, don't pester them about when they are going to leave. Don't sit down next to them to "wait" until they are done. You might be waiting a long time and then the time it takes for you to complete your camp on top of that. The NPC will always respawn and will always be there. Just ask them kindly if they will send you a tell when they are done and 9 times out of 10 they will. These players are tired from camping that long of a period and quite understandably a little grouchy and become extremely nervous at the thought of someone possibly stealing their kill. So, be courteous.

I also once gave the items for this quest to the wrong Centaur =(. Always, always go through the quest if you can, from "hail" onwards. This not only makes sure you have the right guy, it lets you know if the quest has changed or if you forgot something. That's especially important with quests like this that cost you 120p and lots of time. Please, learn from my mistakes! I don't!

The Necro's name is Trazdon, and he spawns on the upper landing on the stairs. His placeholder is a Dark Elf Magician, and another Dark Elf Magician always spawns on the lower landing. All Najena spawns are 18 minutes, so if you have to kill a PH you do have time to med up before the real deal shows. Word of warning - If you fight at the bottom of the stairs, like most people do, the two Necromancers in Bonecracker's room will heal your opponents through the wall, though they don't seem to aggro beyond that. If Bonecracker isn't camped, it's not a bad idea to clear his room before starting this one. Besides, with 18 minute spawns, you'll be looking for something to do. There are also two or three wandering Ogre Guards you will want to keep clear, unless you are good at containing runners - the Magicians, Trazdon, and the Guards themselves will flee when low.
