Kwinn the Outlander (a rare spawn barbarian who wanders all over the zone) has a quest for you.

You say, 'Hail, Kwinn the Outlander'

Kwinn the Outlander says 'Hail, adventurer! Kwinn's the name. Hunting is my game. I have been all over this continent. Seen many things and found [odd trinkets]. I have no quarrel with any race. I judge a person or critter by their actions. Heck, my best friend is a troll !!

You say, 'Wwhat odd trinkets?'

Kwinn the Outlander says 'Blast!! I found some strange thingamajigs!! Most of it I toss or sell to vendors and crazy sages. I am on my way to sell this [iron tail] to a tinkerer.

You say, 'What iron tail?'

Kwinn the Outlander says 'Found the thing washed up on the shore in Timorous Deep. Looks like a metal lizardman tail. It is all rusted and covered with barnacles. Probably can't get much for it, but I'll try. Why do you ask? Are you looking to [trade for the mechanical thing]?

You say, 'I am looking to trade for the mechanical thing'

Kwinn the Outlander takes out an extra pack. 'Thought you might be interested. I don't want to take a loss and I only trade for things I am hunting, so here!! Inside this pack you need to combine the following items; a sabertooth tiger mane, a pair of pygmy brute choppers, a lime plume and a war bone fist. Return the full sack to me and the tail is yours.'

Kwinn the Outlander says 'Kackling Quellious!! This will bring a fortune on the black market!! Well, a deal is a deal. Here is the tail.

Warbone Fist

because it hasn't been mentioned yet i thought I should mention the warbone fist needed is actually "a skeleton fist" dropped by warboned skeletons in the Lake of Ill Omen near the windmill, good luck!
THis quest is for the Tynonium Shackle

You need this tail if you have been given the Faded White Tome. This is from the tome keeper in Kaesora. You get a tome when you turn your shackle of Steel into him.
You then take the tail and your tome and turn them into Master Raska to recevie the mark of Mind I would guess.

Turning in the 3 marks yeilds the Tyn Shackle

Its the final Shackle

I only wish i had been given one of the other tomes as this is going to be a pain in my **** i am sure.

This Item is used for the shackle of tynnonium, which is then used in the quest for the Whistling Fists. Hope this helps :)

A use finally found
# Feb 16 2002 at 11:19 AM Rating: Excellent
Dont know about the plans that drop in Droga, but Verant finally came up with a use for the mechanical tail. The mechanical tail is one of possible items a monk may need to collect for the trial of peace of mind for the Tynnonium Shackle. There are several different versions of this trial, and dont know which version you will get until you get the tome that tells you.

Specifically it goes with the faded white tome to Master Raska to get the Mark of Clarity.

He says his best friend is a troll...wonder who he means?

I've seen a NPC troll running around FV before.

maybe im nuts about this, tail was ripped off by trakanasaurus?? TRAK! think trakanon / trak's teeth, i think we have been hunting in all the wrong places. Also, the DRAGON spawn of Faydedar hangs around this area as well. not the ***** forced spawn for the druid epic, the real dragon one with dragon loot....he was overpowered by a 1. gust of water from below (faydedar is a bigass fish) 2. trakanasaurous, again not sure about this but this could be another funky name for a dragon. Just my 2 cents and i will continue the search.

Plans for Mechanical Tail

There within Droga also drops plans for a Mechanical Tail. Was camping the gate when I saw it.
Captain Irontail
# Oct 27 2001 at 3:03 PM Rating: Decent
In Iksar history is there not a Captain Irontail,a master Vlsk? He had is tail ripped off and the blacksmith's made him a new one.. I think he may have perished at sea...

Perhaps this mechanical tail has something to do with Captain Irontail's tail...

woops just read down some more, saw the other posts :)

Could the troll be mister fizzle in FV?
grakka's tail
# Oct 02 2001 at 5:27 AM Rating: Default
A goblin stitcher from droga drops an item that identifies as 'pattern for grakka's tail' I was thinking it must be related to the mechanical iksar tail I got from Quinn. I've tried combining the tail and the pattern in a sewing kit and a forge, but nothing happens. Either these two items are unrelated, or there are additional items that are needed...

Has anyone ever tried tinkering it with something?

What about the Fallen Iksar in Traks Teeth?

This is a long shot, but has anyone asked the warrior epic gnome in OOt about the tail??

On the map at

1:Shipwreck Bandit Camp
2:Fire Pot Room
3:Raptor Islands
4:The Inn with the Underwater entrace (Just a guess)

I could swear while reading through the other quests this week I came across a reference to an NPC talking about a mechanical tail. If memory serves me correctly it was a Captain or Sailor NPC of some sort (and I think it may have been a secondary quest after completing another one) which seems to explain why the tail waqs found on the sea shore with barnacles. The discussion centered around what this mechanical tail could possibly be, and there were a lot of off the wall suggestions. And today I find this, and spend the last 4 hours trying to find the other quest this was discussed in. Can't for the life of me find it, but I'll keep looking.

Just so you don't think you're going insane, I also remember hearing an npc discuss the mechanical tail. Sadly, I also have no freaking idea where I heard it. Thanks for sparking my memory, for I too shall look = )
An invitation
# Jun 24 2001 at 3:16 AM Rating: Decent
Good idea about the undead Iksar in the OT Outpost. But none of them are Captains. There is an Admiral, yet he's a SK or Necro as he has a pet... and we know that Captain Vlsk Irontail was a monk through Iksar Lore.

Regardless, I went and hailed and thoroughly questioned each undead iksar about Vlsk, Captain Irontail and this Mechanical Iksar Tail.


If anyone would like to join forces in figuring this one out... I invite you to visit under the quest message board, we have a continuing thread dedicated solely to seeing this Lore Item to it's fruition.

it says hes a monk but why would they make a sabre for a monk that shuns those types of wepons?
The undead sea captain in out post
# Jun 19 2001 at 6:45 PM Rating: Decent
Someone else mentioned him before, I'm not high enough to go in there nore am I liked as being an iksar, but if I can get an invis or if anyone who can go there, someone ask if he's heard of Visk Irontail.
# May 17 2001 at 10:40 PM Rating: Decent
Just a thought. They were defeated by dragons. I assume he had storm saber with him when he was defeated. And it was likely not recovered. Perhaps there is an ancient dragon dating back to the time of this legendary Iskar who remembers him. And maybe out of sentiment for an old adversary will give you storm saber in return for his tail.

by jove, i think i've got it!

If all the info about this quest is accurate....Qwinn says something about he is going to sell it to a tinkerer? doesnt he? Weeellll there is a gnome in Tim Deep on the Chessboard island in some ruins...he holds a shovel and says he is looking for some artifacts...could this possibly be the artifact he is looking for? BTW the gnome is NOT KoS to Iksar.....but there is a High Elf that blew my 20 monk away in one spell and a punch for 66dmg.....just wanted to see if this helps any

Nah -

No Bananas. This gnome is an archeologist and is looking for specifically items relating to the Jarsith. He is an NPC Questgiver related to the Key of Veshan's Peak quest series.

I did do a complete sweet of Tim Deep tonight and asked everyone I could find about V(I)sk, V(L)sk (not sure how it's spelled), Captain Irontail, Admiral Visk/Vlsk, a mechanical tail, etc... nadda.

Tried all the undead Iksar in the Outpost in OT too... same thing... nada.

I'm currently hunting for a gnome tinkerer whom Kwinn said he was on his way to sell "the thingamagig" to... maybe that will further this quest along.

Did somebody think of asking one of guild leader specificaly the warbaron of the legion or the leader of the crusader and prime Hierophane as they are the one who made the powerfull sword for the guy or their ancestor at least
How about trying...
# Apr 23 2001 at 12:37 PM Rating: Default
Why not try talking to the dude who sells the books of lore in the monk guild. Try and ask him anything about the subject. He should know about the history of Iksar Monks shouldn't he?
Rusty Tail
# Apr 09 2001 at 8:00 PM Rating: Decent
Has anyone tried to sharpen the tail in a forge. This works for rusty weapons, in theory this is a rusty weapon and with the new wrong combo stopping you have nothing to loose.
Can you WEAR the tail?
# Mar 19 2001 at 1:05 PM Rating: Default
Anybody tried to put it in a ranged slot or something?? Can it be attached??
