"an undead knight" can be found on the third floor of the Temple of Solusek Ro at +400, +80, -30.

You say, 'Hail, an undead knight'

an undead knight says 'Away from this place of torment! Make haste and flee before you, too, share my [gruesome fate]!!'

You say, 'What gruesome fate?'

an undead knight says 'I was once a proud shadowknight, but failed I did in my master's quest. I was sent into a lizard fortress deep in the swamplands. I was to seek out an ancient item for my master. I failed and was captured. The lizards stripped me of my [darkforge armor] and planned to boil me alive. Before they could do so, I escaped. Upon my return to my master's lair I found myself in a [worse predicament].'

You say, 'What darkforge armor?'

an undead knight says 'I and I alone have the power to create darkforge armor!! It was crafted for me so naturally it is to be worn by shadowknights only. My armor was taken by the lizardman crusaders. Unfortunately for them, it lost all power and cannot be worn. I would be glad to see it put to good use. Do you [seek the darkforge armor]?'

You say, 'I seek the darkforge armor.'

an undead knight says 'Darkforge gauntlets require both of my decayed gauntlets and one enchanted platinum bar. For the darkforge greaves, I will need both decayed legplates and two pieces of melatite from the Solusek Mining Company. For the boots, I need both my decayed boots and two parts of fairy dust.'

You say, 'What worse predicament?'

an undead knight says 'I was torn apart by my master and my bones were given as toys to my master's associates!! I am now only half Grandyf the Vile. My hands, feet and legs were sent here and assembled with spare bones of other unfortunates. Since this is the case, I can only [create darkforge armor] in the form of boots, greaves and gauntlets.'

All decayed pieces for this suit of armor drop from both "a Tae Ew crusader" and "a Tae Ew spiritualist," which spawn in The Feerrott outside of the temple of Cazic-Thule.

The melatite drops from the CWG Models in Solusek's Eye.


an undead knight says 'You have been granted the darkforge greaves!!'

There are two 'an undead knight's in the room with Solomen. I think they may despawn sometimes since one disappeared while I was standing in front of it, so just wait if they aren't there. The one on the left gives the quests for the helm, breastplate, vambraces and bracers and the one on the right gives the quests for the gauntlet, legs and boots. Took me a bit to figure out why the one on the left wouldn't take my decayed greaves and melatite. Happy Questing!

Quest is given by "an undead knight" (skeleton) on the third floor of Temple of Sol Ro, loc 400, 80, 31. He is on the right hand side of human caster named Solomen. He gives the quests for greaves and boots, while his counterpart on the left side (also "an undead knight") gives the quests for helm, BP, vambraces, and bracers. I was indifferent to them, and received neither positive or negative faction hits when completing the quest.

<All decayed pieces for this suit of armor drop from both "a Tae Ew crusader" and "a Tae Ew spiritualist". From what I found while camping these items virtually any of the stationary Tae Ew mobs outside of CT can spawn a crusader and I've seen as many as 3 up at a time. The spiritualist only spawns next to the tree at the river's fork, and has 2 buddies to keep him company (3 if you count the one on the other side of the tree). His PH's are either "Radiant" (named enchanter mob) or "a silvered Tae Ew observer". Both crusader and spiritualist are SK mobs that HT (about 300-350), and both drop at least 1-and often 2-decayed pieces. The Tae Ew mobs seem to be on approx. 10 min timer. As far as I could tell there doesn't seem to be a separate loot table for the crusader and spiritualist...either mob has a chance to drop any of the pieces.

The melatite drops from the mechanical gnomes, (CWG Model **) in Sol A and seems to be uncommon random drop. Took me about an hour to get my first one...forgot I needed 2 and had to come back...only took about 10 min to get the other.>

Incorrect drop?

I looted L & R Decayed (might be Decaying) "Leg Plates". I have not seen any Decaying Greaves, left or right. I have been there for 5 days and have not seen "Greaves" or any of the breastplate items. I went and grabbed the Melatite from the little robot gnomes in Sol A, and took them and the decayed "leg plates" from the crusaders in Feerrot, to the undead knight. He gave it all back and said he can not use them. I can verify that the helm quest works fine. Has anyone found the BP items, or been able to acquire the Greaves recently? 2/15/04 @ 11:00pm pst.
RE: Incorrect drop?
# Oct 26 2004 at 2:03 PM Rating: Decent
I think this guy made the same mistake i did. THERE A 2 different UNDEAD KNIGHTS ...1 knight will ONLY make the BP, helm, arms, and wrist; while the other makes just greaves, and boots. What he probably did was try to turn in the leg plates to the wrong undead knight. Hope this info helps someone =)

For anyone who views this post, please do not make the same mistake of wasting your time like this fellow for not understanding that greaves and leg plates are the same, essentially. for this quest, you are looking for left and right LEG PLATES, not GREAVES. Upon completing this quest, you are awarded the Darkforge Greaves. Happy Hunting!

maybe I was lucky but I just logged on my 52 SK for about 30 minutes, went to Sol-A and killed gnomes. Got 1st piece of melatite on 2nd kill, and 2nd piece of melatite on about the 7th kill. Can't remember which gnome it was.

Lets see...I was there with another SK for maybe...1 hr? give or take..anyways, 2 crusaders popped, and he just needed the visor so I got Left and right bracer and left guantlet and left arms. Wish crusader was an easier spawn, gets boring fast.

I got 2 pieces of darkforge for every crusader tonight.. in a 7 hour period.. pulled out right and left vambraces.. right and left legs.. right boot.. face visor and 2 chain bp parts.. all off the ramp. I gotta say I expected maybe 1 or 2 Crusaders not 4 in that time.. was great xp solo'd them at 42 all the way to 43 tonight when I logged.. Silverback Guardian (named monkey) dropped 3 times ravenscale bp.. gaunts and lizard man mask.
Just some confirmation for people :P
Do they drop
# Mar 21 2002 at 3:57 PM Rating: Decent
Since they moved the Crusaders from inside Cazic to the area outside in Ferrot I have not seen the Right vambrave nor the Right Greave drop. Just wondering if anyone else has or did they nerf this with the change?
RE: Do they drop
# Mar 25 2002 at 1:01 AM Rating: Default
Yep, they sure do...that's where I got 'em. Just keep campin and have patience man. I only usually get 1-2 (if lucky 2) pcs a nite. And I usually camp 'em from 4-5 hours. Some are duplicates of course. Have patience and kill every Justicar, Judicator, Zealot and Fanatic. The Crusader pops in same place as those do.

Good luck!

For the record, YES, both the BP pieces drop off the crusaders. I've camped them for about 12-14 hours so far and have had 3 right legs, 1 chest plate, one mail, and one visor from a total of 4 crusaders.

Both of Knights respond to hail and give you a list of items that they can make for you, as well as what you have to have. Melatite is droped by Models MB and MC in Sol A. Decayed armor droped in Cazic Thule by Crusaders and Ritualists.

If you try to Kill Gnomes from Within or near the Gnome city in Sol A they will try to heal each other....No kidding..Best bet is to Take out the weak mages and CLockworks around the lava before you get to the city..OH and all the Gnomes drop Melichite (Mispelled) is Random...much like Dufretti (Mispelled) used for Shaman armor..
I got 4 or so From just Camping the Clockwork EXE for its Charred Guardian Sheild and BP....=/

In the Temple of Solusek Ro there are 2 Undead Knights. One of them you hand in the items for Helm, BP, Vambraces, and Bracers. The other Undead Knight does not respond to hails.

Do you hand the items for the lower body pieces to this other knight even though he does not repond to hails? Where do you turn in the items for the DF Boots, Greaves, and Guantlets? Is the other Undead Knight bugged since the last patch?

Spent all day in Sol A yesterday managed to loot one piece of melatite off CWG modelCB or sumthin like that, then i talked to the 50+ mage an he said he had about 3 pieces of normal melatite on him but thought i was lookin for blue melatite (?) earlier which only drops off captain.
The mobs u have to kill for melatite are blue to 34 and in a group of about 2-3 u can easily take 2. The only problem is if u r a troll like me.. If u attack them where they spawn they can run up a really small passageway and escape so u have to make sure u pull them into the room where gobbos spawn. The next pulls after this one are hard as the models are in a room where u cant see any of the others which are near and they see thru invis so u cant check it out, FD pulling makes this a much easier task. Hope this helps to any Darkforge wantin ppl out there :)
I've got all the freaky bits like this for darkforge now which leaves the rest of decaying and then i'll be in full darkforge :)

Ok i tried killin a gnome in solusek, im 34sk but just dropped from 35.. :/
Got the guy to the point where his hp wasnt even showing as it was so low but he went up sum passage where i had to duck, bein a troll, which meant attack went off.. his m8s then frenzied an beat the **** out of me. I asked a 50+ mage in the zone to help but he said only the captain drops it.. so i looked on here an read ur post, where do u buy this stuff?

No. Because Iksar can't wear plate.

platemail irratates their scales ;). they get a fatty ac bonus from them though. i was just thinking, once an iksar sk gets high level, waht do they wear? cabilis scale mail? jasarth scale? they cant wear blood ember(for the good reason mentioned above). if they could wear plate, they be the best sk's in the way of tanking...life regen, 600-800ac bonus at about lvl 60...they'd be the best...

With no bonus elements ( +str , +sta , etc. ) , I dont recommend playing this race as an SK unless you just must be a lizardman. Actually, to think about it, I would only recommend being a monk if you were to play this race. The bonus AC is perfect for one who wears silk armor. Think about it.....and look for Queen Viola on Tallon Zek.
RE: Can Iksar wear?
# Jul 15 2001 at 10:12 PM Rating: Default
not true at all....I would use iksar for all the classes their are. For shaman they have regeneration and AC bonus plus if you play the PvP servers they start with swimming bonus which is tactical advantage. They also make one of best necros I think...natural regen and AC bonus...anything helps when solo'n. Monks....hey cant beat regen with Mend and an AC bonus. The starting stats are notta...its all bout how you place them and then what equipment you choose to flesh out the rest of them. Iksar are actually a very rockin race for the class choices they have!!

ok i have a bit of beaf with the idea of playing an iksar necro on the idea of the regen and improved ac as helpful for them in soloing... Hate ta tell ya this buddy but if a Necro is being attacked in melee which can only really result from losing his pet, he is by all means SCREWED. Then throw the Iksar's Int compared to other necro races and then on top of that the Iksar XP penalty and they are by far the worse Necro Race. Thanks for your time all. Peas Out

Necros have a line of spells that convert HP to Mana....guess what, natural hp regen means more mana for a necro.
