    This shared task (1-6 players) begins with Gimble Shamrook in Al'Kabor's Nightmare. He's found in a ruined hut a little ways east of the wall (in the same spot as Dabner Drednever from the "The Rivervale Ruins" task).

    You say, 'Hail, Gimble Shamrook'

    Gimble Shamrook looks you over with curious suspicion before he speaks, 'I have a quick and keen eye, you know, and I can tell with one glance that you don't belong here. If you're attempting to retrieve [relics], then you'd better be warned that I am one step ahead of you!'

    You say, 'What relics?'

    Gimble Shamrook says 'I can sense your shenanigans, oh yes. I see that you're trying to steal my brilliant idea! While these islands may be a figment of someone's imagination, they still contain all the same [treasures] the original lands hold.'

    You say, 'Treasures?'

    Gimble Shamrook says 'Oh, such wondrous treasures! Sure, they may be rusty and ruined, but if I shine 'em up a bit, no one will ever know the difference. The simpletons of Norrath will pay me a hefty sum for my faux relics! I just need to find a way to travel to the other [islands]...'

    You say, 'The other islands?'

    Gimble Shamrook says 'There are several other islands in this space, and I'm positive there must be a way to travel between them. Since we both seem to have the same goal, we might as well work together. If you can help me [recover] these relics, I'll make sure it's worth your effort.'

    You say, 'I'll help you recover them'

    Gimble Shamrook says 'Splendid! I'll give you whatever information I have pertaining to the relic's whereabouts. Happy treasure hunting!'

    You have been assigned the task 'Ruined Relic Recovery'.

    You have partnered up with Gimble Shamrook to recover relics from the surrounding islands in order to earn a hefty profit!

    The four "Speak to..." and four "Deliver..." steps are open from the start of the task, so you can handle the islands in any order you'd like.

    Speak to Snugum Witgone 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Snugum Witgone is found within the wall on the Rivervale isle.

    You say, 'Hail, Snugum Witgone'

    Snugum Witgone clears his throat before responding, 'You're here for the beads? Boss must have sent you. Boss knows he can count on me! I hid the beads in the most secret of hiding spots. No one will ever [find] them, not even me!'

    You say, 'How can I find them?'

    Snugum Witgone says 'You use a magnetic metal detector to find the beads, but that fat-fingered Hilnie stole it! You'll take it from her and find the beads? And not tell Boss that I hid them so good?'

    Recover the Magnetic Metal Detector from Hilnie 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Hilnie spawns in the north-central halfling bandit camp. Her difficulty is on par with the rest of the mobs on the island (hits for a max ~7,000).

    Hilnie has been slain by _____!
    Hilnie's corpse crumples to the floor.

    Find the spot where the beads are buried 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    The beads are buried in the southeastern part of the island at approximately -270, -400, -40.

    Use the Magnetic Metal Detector to retrieve the warbeads 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    The metal detector makes a loud clanking noise as it pulls Ruined Runnyeye Warbeads from the ground.

    Speak to Helda Varesh 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Helda Varesh is found in a building in the northeastern part of the Everfrost Wastelands.

    You say, 'Hail, Helda Varesh'

    Helda Varesh says 'Greetings, _____. You're looking for the cloak of an ice bear? What an odd request. It's so old and tattered. If you insist, I can help restore it to a suitable condition, but I'll need a pelt from the elusive ice bear. I can help you lure it out of hiding with my delectable goblin goulash, but you'll need to collect some tender goblin meat for me first.'

    Loot Tender Goblin Meat from ice goblins 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    This is a common drop from ice goblins on the isle.

    Give the Tender Goblin Meat to Helda Varesh 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Helda Varesh says 'Doesn't it smell delicious? Head right outside of this building, and use the goulash to attract an ice bear.'

    Use the goulash to lure an ice bear and take its pelt 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Right-click the Goblin Goulash while standing in front of Helda's building to spawn "an ice bear" (on par with difficulty of the mobs on the isle).

    A ferocious roar rumbles behind Helda's ice hut.

    an ice bear has been slain by _____!
    an ice bear's corpse falls to the ground with a loud crash.

    Give the Pristine Ice Bear Pelt to Helda Varesh 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Helda Varesh says 'This should do it. The cloak won't provide much protection, but it's yours nonetheless.'

    Speak to Ogrol 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Ogrol spawns in a set of abandonned huts in the central part of the Faydark island.

    You say, 'Hail, Ogrol'

    Ogrol says 'You want a robe? What for? You're not going to wear it, are you? Never mind, I don't want to know... I have no use for a robe, but since you seem to want it so badly, I'm sure you're willing to trade far more than what it's worth! Bring me a fragment from the Staff of Discord, and the robe is yours to do whatever you want with.'

    Kill the Priest of Discord and loot a fragment of his staff 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    You'll find the Priest of Discord a little ways west of Ogrol's location, beneath the ruins of Kelethin. He has two guards with him (they are mezzable), but can be split away from them. Fight difficulty is on par with the rest of the isle's mob population.

    Priest of Discord has been slain by _____!
    Priest of Discord's corpse lets out a gasp before falling silent.

    Give the Staff Fragment to Ogrol 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Ogrol says 'The ruined robe is all yours. Just don't try squeezing it on over that fat head of yours, you hear?'

    Speak to Zisak 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Zisak spawns in the northeastern pyramid on the Dreadlands isle.

    You say, 'Hail, Zisak'

    Zisak says 'All of our weapons have deteriorated, much like our home here. I will do my best to repair the hilt of the wraith bone hammer if you bring me a large chunk of bone from one of the plaguebone skeletons that linger around here.'

    Loot a Large Chunk of Bone 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    This item drops from plaguebones on the Dreadlands isle.

    Give the Large Chunk of Bone to Zisak 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Zisak says 'I do not believe it will hold up in battle, but regardless, here is the hammer you requested.'

    Deliver Ruined Runnyeye Warbeads to Gimble 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Deliver a Ruined Cloak of the Ice Bear to Gimble 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Deliver a Ruined Robe of Discord to Gimble 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Deliver a Ruined Wraith Bone Hammer to Gimble 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    Speak to Gimble Shamrook 0/1 (Al'Kabor's Nightmare)

    You say, 'Hail, Gimble Shamrook'

    Gimble Shamrook says 'Brilliant job, _____! These relics should make me filthy rich! Oh... um, I mean they'll make us rich, of course.'

    You collected numerous ruined relics for Gimble Shamrook and received what you hope is half of the profits...

    Your faction standing with Dream Delvers got better.

    Just killed the Priest of Discord for the Ogrol/Faydark step, his buddies, the "a minion of discord" are mezzable.

    I had trouble splitting them since there are several roamers and static mobs about and I didn't want to have to kill them all. I ended up killing two of the roamers before taking on the Priest of Discord. I duo a 85 SK and 87 Chanter. After failing a Hate's Attraction pull, since the PoD is under an overhang of debris and he merely cracked his skull on it before coming back down fairly close to his spawn point & buddies, I said ***** it. I pulled them all, popped some discs, then discovered the minions were mezzable, making the whole thing very easy.

    If you die trying to kill the ice bear, he doesn't despawn. He just runs back to his spawn point and waits for you to re-engage (right behind the hut). Redoing the turn-in for the goblin meat will NOT get you another goulash, so if another group kills him while you recover, you're out of luck. (Not that he's that hard - I died because a goblin came up and surprised me)
