You need a Decayed Left Vambrace and Decayed Right Vambrace (both from tae ew monsters in Feerrott) and a Qeynos Kite Shield (from Qeynos guards).

You say, 'Hail, an undead knight '

an undead knight says, 'Leave this place or find yourself [bound to this land] as I am.'

You say, 'You are bound to this land?'

an undead knight says, 'I was torn to pieces for failure to complete a task for my master. I lost my life, my precious [shadowknight armor] and most of all, my [lower body]!'

You say, 'what happened to your lower body?'

an undead knight says, 'My lower body was taken from me, along with my hands. I was pieced together using portions of other failed champions. Now I can only [create darkforge armor] in the form of helms, breastplates, vambraces and bracers.'

You say, 'You create darkforge armor?'

an undead knight says, 'Darkforge helms require my decayed helm and visor as well as two Freeport militia helms. The breastplate requires the decayed breastplate, decayed mail and two enchanted platinum bars. Vambraces need both decayed vambraces and a Qeynos Guard kite shield. The bracers require both decayed bracers and a broken horn from a minotaur lord.'

You say, 'Tell me about your shadowknight armor.'

an undead knight says, 'My darkforge armor! It was taken into the land of lizards by the lizardmen crusaders! It is worthless decayed armor now! I cannot even wear it any more, but perhaps you can! Would you like me to [make you darkforge armor]?'

You say, 'make you darkforge armor'

an undead knight says, 'Darkforge helms require my decayed helm and visor as well as two Freeport militia helms. The breastplate requires the decayed breastplate, decayed mail and two enchanted platinum bars. Vambraces need both decayed vambraces and a Qeynos Guard kite shield. The bracers require both decayed bracers and a broken horn from a minotaur lord.'

Need all dialogues, faction hits if any, /loc of quest-giver.

Which Shield?
# Jun 14 2002 at 2:40 PM Rating: Decent
Aight, EXACTLY which shield is the one, I need? Is it the Queynos Kite Shield, or the Queynos GUARD Kite shield? I'd really hate to do this quest, and mess it up, over something, that trivial. I'm always killing the guard, at the NK Wizzie-spires... He aggro's while, I'm on my way to Luclin... I've killed him, a few times, but didn't know what the shield is for. Now that I know....Please clear it up, for all of us, please.

Ok, got one of these from a Tae Ew Crusader in Ferrott. He was on the pyramid outside CT.

None of the others had anything, and he was the only crusader up at the time.

That is because they moved all the old CT mobs out to the Feerot now. CT is a level 55+ dungeon now. Also instead of being called by a generic "lizardman" they have their faction's name "tae ew"

Ok, I know about the shield, and I know about the right and left arm or whatever, but what the hell drops it in CT? And where do they spawn...its the crusaders right? but where do they spawn? And are the decaying peices rare? Also what lvl are the crusaders? Could a 50 druid solo them? Ok, thank you...bye

Yes your 50 Druid can Kill them...they are SK so they do HT..but not much at level 50..Prolly wont even stick..I am level 46 necro and my pet can Kill Ritualist and his pet in matter of Secs.Literally...for spawn its easy..At wizard spires in CT Maze you head South...stick to wall to left...you will come to a small Temple that looks like a little house almost!@..On top of that tiny Temple is where the Ritualist Spawns.Is like hour to 2 hour spawn and drops a bit or two of Decayed everytime along with a Slimy Spear used for the Quest (Fiend Spear) in Stone Brunt Mnts.

They HT'd me for 321. I believe that sz they are a level 32. Any way, that is about the level range. To be safe expect 32-35.

The crusaiders and the ritualist are SK's. SK's have pets. Pets are Skelles. Skelles are undead. So how can you, the Dark Knight, find the crusader?

Thats right, by looking for his pet. Ok if you cant find him now, you picked the wrong class.

Crusaders are level 33. Careful they are shadow knights and can harm touch! They spawn random in back of TR and TR areas. You can also get decayed from the ritualist that spawns at the south most pyramid in the maze. A little harded then a crusader but seen him drop up to three pieces one time! Long spawn time for the rit though. Your druid should have little to no trouble soloing these.

they also spawn outside CT, on the corner where the rivers meet, around the obolisk(sp?)

easiest place to get the Qeynos Kite Shield, or Qeynos GUARD kite shield, or whatever its called, is the tower near the gypsy camp in NK. bind in the gypsy camp, then wait patiently for one of the guards to chase a mob away from the tower. very often one will run off to kill a lion or wolf and leave his partner behind. BAM! yours. i was taking these guys out solo at 37 without much problem.

Don't pay any attention to the "qeynos guard kite shield" bs. I used the regular one off of guard frederick and it worked fine.
Leg equals vambraces?
# Jul 18 2001 at 4:55 AM Rating: Default
I looted my first piece of decayed today in CT, a "decayed right leg" that looked like vambraces. None of the DF quest guides mention anything about a "decayed LEG". Is this the item for the vambraces or is my troll intelligence getting to me again?

Not for vambraces, I currently have both sides to vambraces in the bank and they are both titled "Decayed <left/right> Vambraces." I also have the decayed right legging in the bank too. Unless I'm mistaken it is for greaves. Probably an icon mistake.

kite shield

I have never heard of a "qeynos guard kite shield". I did this quest a long time ago and got a "qeynos kite shield" off of a guard in NK. It worked. Been wearing the vambrace for 15 levels now.

I was doing the investigator quest with my warrior and a Qeynos Kite shield dropped off the lvl 17 corrupt you kill in phase 1. I KNEW that couldn't be for the quest, too easy. Who drops the qeynos guard kite shield? Probably Nash or the gate guards...
Both arms required!

You do need both the Left and Right Vambraces. Confirmed it today 4/25/01

How do make this?
# Mar 24 2001 at 7:47 AM Rating: Default
I gave him both Left and Right Vambracer and one Kite Shield. But I didnšt get anything back. Do I need two Kite Shields?
RE: How do make this?
# Aug 08 2002 at 3:41 PM Rating: Decent
So you didnšt get anything back? lol you must use a swedish keybord cause that "š" happens to me often.

# Mar 28 2001 at 12:59 PM Rating: Default
Poor you. Sounds like you wasted a lot of time. It's not just any kite shield, it's a "Qeynos" Kite shield. If you did turn that in, maybe you didn't say the right things to him first. Be more careful next time.
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 02 2001 at 2:23 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) How come all the other pieces that you would think would have a left and right piece require both and this one does not? Last time I checked we have two arms. Not that I am complaining (woohoo I only have to get one) but jeez keep these quests consistent.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jun 27 2001 at 11:59 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) ...yes you are complaining. dumb N00B's
#Anonymous, Posted: Feb 06 2001 at 3:14 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) The WHOLE GAME is inconsistant - why should this quest be any different?
how many?

Darkforge arms are an excellent quest reward - AC 11 and the +4 STR bonus is actually useful to a SK, as opposed to some of the stats on other pieces of darkforge. You will use these up until you can afford mithril arms, blood ember arms or you can get some Umbral arms.
