    This task begins with Galadvert Nablisten at the zone-in of Toskirakk. You must have completed the task "Times Are a Chainin'" prior to requesting it.

    Every once is a while Ganekk Dopp will wander into the room containing Galadvert Nablisten and shout something. If you are standing nearby, you will see Galadvert make a comment about this.

    Ganekk Dopp shouts 'You want to eat? Have a taste of the whip!'

    Galadvert Nablisten says 'That ghastly ogre is back. If only I had some [assistance]!'

    You say, 'Assistance with what?'

    Galadvert Nablisten says 'He's horrible. I've been trying to find a way to get rid of that [ogre] for months now, but I just don't have the ability on my own.'

    You say, 'Which ogre is that?'

    Galadvert Nablisten says 'His name is Ganekk Dopp, and he exists only to follow orders. As long as he's been here, his orders have been to make us work harder. He follows orders so strictly he won't even fight us when we try to goad him into a trap. If I had some [implements] maybe I could falsify something.'

    You say, 'What kind of implements?'

    Galadvert Nablisten says 'He only responds to official orders. He won't even look twice at anything I write on the scraps I can scrounge around here. You, though... can you get me the [materials] I need?'

    You say, 'What materials?'

    Galadvert Nablisten says 'This is what I need...

    You have been assigned the task 'Massive Retaliation'.

    Galadvert needs a Quill, some Ink of Zek, and a Roll of Vellum to write on in order to falsify some orders for Ganekk Dopp. Any decent merchant should be able to supply you with these items.

    Deliver a quill To Galadvert 0/1 (Toskirakk)

    Deliver 1 Roll of Vellum to Galadvert 0/1 (Toskirakk)

    Deliver 1 Ink of Zek to Galadvert 0/1 (Toskirakk)

    All three of these items can be bought from the spell research vendors in PoK near the small bank.

    Deliver the false orders to Ganekk Dopp 0/1 (Toskirakk)

    Ask Galadvert about the false orders so you can deliver them to Ganekk.

    You say, 'Are the False orders ready?'

    Galadvert Nablisten says 'Great! I haven't had materials like this since... well, it's been a while. Let me see... orders... evacuate... free the slaves... return home... there. Give him this, and hope he follows them. Be on your guard in case he does not!'

    You receive an item called False Orders.

    On handing the false orders to Ganekk:

    Ganekk Dopp quickly scans the document you gave him. As he does, his grimace somehow appears to deepen...

    Ganekk Dopp says 'These aren't true orders. Did you think I could be tricked so easily?'

    Ganekk Dopp says 'Now you'll see why I was put in charge of this place, fools!'

    He then attacks. Note he enrages towards the end.

    Kill Ganekk Dopp 0/1 (Toskirakk)

    There is a 5 hour lockout on this task.

    Bugged as of 2/10/13. You give her the quill, ink, and vellum and she doesn't give back to false orders. /bugreported

    It is not bugged even though I had thought the same thing. It is stated in your quest log after turning in the three items under task progression window "Ask Galadvert about the false orders so you can give them to Ganekk." as indicated in the below post by Bloodgrave. I verified she will hand you the orders immediately after saying "Orders" targeting her. Good luck all.

    the biggest problem i have is that he never stops walking. i run behind him and try to give him the orders and he just goes on and never stops -- kind of hard to give something to an npc who keeps walking away from you
    Success comes when preparation meets opportunity -- and EQ is no exception.
    Updates for whole party confirmed

    I can confirm turning in the orders to Ganekk and killing him updates the quest for the entire group, it doesn't need to be turned in for each person... just one.

    Also, I missed the instructions at 1st glance regarding the orders. After you turn in the materials to make the false orders... you need to click on Galadvert and type "orders" he will then hand you the orders to give to Ganekk.

    good luck!

    If you have the mission, the kill counts for all.

    I got mission on my necro and enchanter. Enchanter got the orders and we killed the named. Necro has the named kill as completed on his mission as well. I gave the quill, ink, and vellum to Galadvert and "mission complete."

    Glad I didn't have to kill him twice. He ENRAGES at the end.

    I don't believe there are any pre-requisites. I just obtained the task, and I have not done any of the tasks in the zone. Though I have gotten the Times are a chainin' task, and have helped kill mobs in the zone for only about 2 or 3 hours so I don't have much faction yet.

    Ganekk Dopp roams up and down a tunnel as well as in the room. There are 2 other roamers in the tunnel. The best way to do this is to clear the roamers in the tunnel and do the turn in there, so you get him single.

    A word of advice when doing this quest for more then one person in a group be warned that the turn in agro's the whole group and makes him kos and he see's invis it seems. When I did the turn in of the false orders it updated a group members quest also. Don't know if it's a glitch or it's meant to be like that considering that it's a solo task.

    I believe that *solo* in this case means you each need to get the task. With *group* tasks, you need to have at least 3 folks in the group to get it. At least, that's been my experience. Hope I'm right and hope this helps.
