    This solo task begins with Farwhendle Higglespout in Barren Coast at approximate location -275, -115.

    You say, 'Hail, Farwhendle Higglespout'

    Farwhendle Higglespout says 'Well hello there! Isn't this a fine day? Smell that sea air! I love that smell. Why, if I didn't get sick whenever I stepped aboard a boat I'd be out there right now watching the waves and the people that ride them. It's all so exciting! I love the sea and everything about it. In fact, if you are interested, and you don't get seasick, perhaps you could [do a few things] for me. If not, then maybe you'd like to [hear a few tales] about the Buried Sea.'

    You say, 'I can do a few things for you'

    Farwhendle Higglespout says 'Just a few simple things that a small gnome like me can't do.'

    You are offered two tasks, one of which is 'Ship Wrecks'.

    You have been assigned the task 'Ship Wrecks'.

    Farwhendle has asked you to locate and explore every shipwrecked hull and debris that you can find on the Barren Coast or in the waters offshore. He would like you to report back to him what you have found.

    Locate and explore ship debris in the Barren Coast area (Barren Coast)
    Locate and explore ship debris in the Barren Coast area (Barren Coast)
    Locate and explore ship debris in the Barren Coast area (Barren Coast)
    Locate and explore ship debris in the Barren Coast area (Barren Coast)
    Talk to Farwhendle about the ship you found in the north (Barren Coast)
    Talk to Farwhendle about the ship you found in the south (Barren Coast)
    Talk to Farwhendle about the ship's hull you foudn embedded in the rocks (Barren Coast)
    Talk to Farwhendle about the ship's anchor you found (Barren Coast)

    The task updates at these locations:
    On the shore to the south (-1500, +300)
    Near the shore in middle of zone (+300, -500)
    On crocodile island to the south (-1900, -300)
    By Captain Jafar (-2200, 400)

    If you go the faction route, you get +8 to Blacksail Smugglers. It's an either/or with experience, you don't get both. You also get, either way, roughly 25p.
    One time only?

    Did this quest with a 72 Mage in Aug 2008. Easy quest but after doing it once have not been able to redo quest. Not sure if broken or just is allowed for one time use

    I can't seem to turn the quest into him, I found all locations. Any hints what I'm doing wrong?

    What would be the next best mission to do to work on the pirate faction for non 75s now that SoE murdered our ability to actually gain faction in a decent timeframe? I hope I'm not going to haveta do wharf rats over and over again. =(

    Just ran this with my 72 ranger and was unable to request it a second time. Thanks to the warp hackers everywhere, this task is no longer repeatable as of today's (Sept 5th 2007) patch.

    Good hunting,

    Cheers

    XP was around 4-5% at 45. Lasts about 2min+ with SoW, Lev, and Invis.
    Required level is lower

    Just went into Barren Coast and was able to get this task with my 46 shaman. He got ~6% reg exp and my 56 druid got ~5% AA exp.

    EDIT: Went and shrouded myself....can confirm that level 40 is too low. Wife brought down her 45 bard and was able to get the task.

    Where is this guy, at the Loc given is Researcher Higgins who gives the Monkey Ieland Quests?

    Never mind I found him, he is close by but the LoC given above is incorrect.

    Correct loC is -275, -115, 0 in the tent

    Soooo.. the question on everyone's mind or at least mine is... how many times does one have to do this quest to raise faction from indifferent to ally?

    indifferent to ally
    # Apr 19 2007 at 1:56 PM Rating: Decent
    From my experience, it takes 200 or so at least to reach ally (perhaps as much as 300).

    I completed probably 100-160 (lost count long time ago) of these missions on a 65 alt, in addition to 15 or so group missions.

    I was able to get this quest on my level 51 wizard. Having some form of Levitation, SoW and Invisibility makes this incredibly easy. You can do it in less then 5 minutes and it can be repeated.

    However, a level 39 friend was unable to get the quest. I don't know what the lowest level is.

    My task updated at these locs:

    Location Updates
    # Feb 14 2007 at 4:13 PM Rating: Decent
    3 of the update locations are found along the coast, the 4th I got swimming over the island just south of the lighthouse, with crocidiles on it. I swam around and didn't see any wreckage around the island, didn't see any on land either, so unsure why I got the update there.

    One of the shipwrecks is north from quest giver camp, another is south, where the undead roam, and the 3rd updating near the undead boat dock in far south. 4th is as I mentioned in prior paragraph.

    The parts after locating are all 4 are as follows:

    Talk to Farwhendle about the ship you found in the north.
    Talk to Farwhendle about the ship you found in the south.
    Talk to Farwhendle about the ship's hull you foudn embedded in the rocks.
    Talk to Farwhendle about the ship's anchor you found.

    Hailing updates each of these.
