This quest begins with Guard Beren in South Qeynos, located at about -245, -145, 4. Faren will accept his tacklebox even at dubious.

You say, 'Hail, Guard Beren'

Guard Beren says 'What do you want? Are you friends with that lousy [dwarf]?! You had better not be unless you want to spend the rest of the week bleeding!'

You say, 'What dwarf?'

Guard Beren says 'That dwarf, Trumpy, who Corshin here thinks is a friend of Commander Bayle's, keeps pestering my poor brother Faren. I have had just about enough of him and [his kind].'

You say, 'Who is Faren?'

Guard Beren says 'My brother Faren is a fine fisherman just like our father was. He fishes out there on the East Dock just about every day.'

Trumpy Irontoe periodically walks up to Faren (-175, 120, 3).

Trumpy Irontoe says 'Hey, Fishboy! You dropped something! Bwah ha ha ha!'

Faren says 'Huh? What? My [tacklebox]!? You know I can't swim, you rotten [dwarf]!'

Trumpy Irontoe says 'Better start learning, [Skippy].'

Faren says 'My name is not Skippy.'

You say, 'Hail, Faren'

Faren says 'Oh. Hiya. I'm just out here fishing, since I can't find a job. I hope this [bait] I just bought catches me a big ol' fish.'

You say, 'What bait?'

Faren says 'I use Captain Rohand's Secret Recipe Super Magic Catch-A-Lot brand bait. I bought my pole from Sneed's up by the north pond.'

You say, 'What happened to your tacklebox?'

Faren says 'Oh. That mean [dwarf], Trumpy, just knocked my tacklebox into the water. Could you please get it for me? I can't swim.'

Jump in the water, just on the right side of the dock. The tacklebox looks like a small bag at about -145, 160, -37. Pick up a Wooden Fishing Tackle, and say to Trumpy:

You say, 'Who is Skippy?'

Trumpy Irontoe says 'You had better just be.. <BURP!>.. minding your own business if you know what is good for you. Gnollbreath. We Irontoes are a proud and strong bunch of dwarves from [Kaladim]. We crush weaklings like you. <BURP!>'

Give Faren the tacklebox.

Faren says 'Thank you so much! If you want some free advice, steer clear of those [Irontoes]! They are nothing but trouble. Here. It's not much but I must thank you somehow.'

Do this and the Hurrietta's Tunic quest and get net positive faction hits with both Guards of Qeynos and Corrupt Qeynos Guards. You need both factions if you want to go inside Qeynos because if you get attacked by a guard from one faction, guards from both factions will jump in to help and that usually means you will be dead pretty quickly or if not, and you actually win the fight, your guard factions will be even more screwed up than they were before. Be wary of any quest that lowers either one and take steps to raise the lowered one back up as soon as you can.

Thsi quest can be done in 15 seconds. Don't even wait for trumpy. Just dive in the ocean, grab the tackle box, and hand it to him. Simple, and you get some xp and faction.

Then he gives you tunic, which you hand into Ton Firepride. Sure it raises Bloodsabre faction, but what about Corrupt Qeynos Guards & Unseen Hands? Something is screwed up...

Ummm, Faren is a *GOOD* guy. That's why your good factions went up. In Qeynos, 99.9% of the time when your good factions go up, your evil ones come down and vice versa. And just because one faction from the good or evil groups goes up, doesn't mean the others in that group will necessarily go up too.

There is also a mob that you kill... something Ratman that looks like how a begger or madman looks.... if you kill him you gain bad faction with qeynos underground but good with the above... Always dropped the box for me... killed him about 30 times.... easier then running around searching for the bag..

# Feb 19 2002 at 6:17 PM Rating: Decent
Ok everyone seems to have trouble finding the tackle box...

1) Talk to Guard Beren at gate (east of southern docks).
2) Go to the end of the docks and target Faren, then hail him.
3) When he tells you he is fishing... reply with
"What bait"
4) Press ESC to release him from your target and walk off dock or fish a bit or whatever (we're talking about 30 seconds)
5) Wether Trumpy shows or not walk off the pier the the right of Faren (your right)
6) In front of you is a large boulder that goes all the way up to the castle wall. Look around all over that rock ledge boulder or whatever for a small sack (not a box).
6) Pick it up and then swim to shore and go up on the dock to give it to Faren.

Note: Sometimes Trumpy was there, sometimes he was not, I did not have to wait for him and I did the quest several times. The money Faren gave me was small change but the exp was there. Faren never did say "Hey! My tacklebox you rotten dwarf" or anything like that for me. I just asked about the bait and gave it a bit of time and jumped in to get the box.
well...

You all know that Hurrietta is in the other end of Qeynos right? Well, I will go and see if she wants her robe first, then I will let you know if there is a good side to this, cause, you see I get this cute little note a lot lately...."your faction with Bloodsabers could not possibly get worse." LOL so we see if there is a good side to this today.

running down the dock and straight of the end the tackle box is to the right on a ledge above the sewer opening--it looks like a small pouch not a tackle box

you don't have to complete the entire quest if u don't want to ,,, all u got to do is jump into water and look left to find tackle box ,, return it and wait 3-5 minutes and then repeat ,,, good way to gain xp if a newbie

Hurrita's Tunic/Rat Shaped Ring
# Sep 13 2001 at 6:38 AM Rating: Decent
1. Target Faren
In South Qeynos there are two docks. Faren is fishing at the dock that the boat doesn't come to (left one).

2. Acquire Tacklebox
This beauty drops in the water near the same pier (which is in line with his story about it being knocked off). If it isn't there, go tell him again. Sometimes I think it is still cycling from a prior drop.

3. Give Faren Tacklebox
This results in various Faction changes, several good, several bad, several coin, and most of you doing this quest will get experience.
You will receive Hurriet's Tunic.

4. Give Tunic to Ton Firepride
This bloke is in the back of Firepride's. Firepride's is a blacksmith-store. From the second dock the easiest way to get there is to head toward the bank. Its the store on the left before you cross the pond.
Giving Ton the Tunic results in more coin, more experience, and various Faction changes. Some of these cancel Faren's faction adjustments, some of them don't.
It also results in a Bloody Tunic. Which is kind of funny because he suddenly gets all righteous about you killing Hurrieta.

5. Give Bloody Tunic to Garuc.
This took me the longest to determine. It says Garuc is the leader of the Bloodsabres but doesn't say where he is.
Garuc is in the Qeynos sewers. If you can find the Necromancer/Shadowknight guild, walk through the entrance and go straight. Following the walls at this point should bring you to something of a church, probably praising one of the dark Gods. (Never bothered to pay attention).
The guy dead center of the opposite wall from the entrance is your man.
Giving Garuc the Bloody Tunic will result in faction, and a random item. About 1 in 10 times I've done this I've gotten the ring the other guys mention.

** If you are evil, stop here **

6. Give the Ring to Suuspa
I messed this one up but as all the quest parts always drop (except the ring) and its kinda closed, repeating it shouldn't be too much of a challenge, except for the Zone changes.
Suuspa is in the Temple of Light. She's standing near the center circle, NOT ALONG THE WALL. There's a Paladin looking fellow with the same first name I turned my ring into.

Good Luck with the quest

This quest is outstanding (especially if you're an Evil newbie human character). Its easy EXPs, coinage, and a nice item from Garuc in the Aqueducts. This will work until you're KOS'd by the Guards (if you're Evil). I'm still curious if someone has discovered a "Good" ending to this quest - either before or after you visit and get the Bloody Tunic from Ton Ironforge.

just a note you I gave the tunic to mr ironforge and now i can't buy items from him any more
RE: ironforge
# Jan 19 2001 at 6:02 PM Rating: Default
If you take the tunic to Ton Firepride at Firepride's, he'll reward you with quite a nice bit of change for characters between 1-4 levels but the faction hits are not that great. BloodSabres go up, Corrupt Qeynos Guards goes up, Guards of Qeynos goes down and there is one more that goes up but i am unsure as to what it is right now... i think it might be Ring of Scale or Opal DarkBriar. I only turned it over to him a few times just for the money so i could buy spells. I prefer to just give Faren the tacklebox and destroy the tunic.

This is excellent quest for first and second levels. No money or faction required to my knowledge, can get third level in less than an hour but don't forget, your skills are not going up while you do this.
Free XP
# Aug 29 2000 at 1:45 AM Rating: Default
Whenever I'm in the neighborhood I dive in to see if the tacklebox is there. If so, I grab it and turn it in for some faction and a little XP. Not much, but what do you expect for a quest with no risk? I'm 13th now and it still gives xp.

A good quest because basically its a freebie.
