Noclin Saah may be found at 981.29, -101.52.

Noclin Saah, who is usually found running in the tunnel between Paineel and the newbie zone, says that he has lost his pet and it is attacking new apprentices in the yard. He is afraid that if his master finds out, his guild will punish him. Kill his pet, named Noclin's Pet (approximately level 4), and give him a NO TRADE LORE item called a rotting femur. Several factions change, and you receive a very nice 1hb necro weapon called Noclin's Femur.

Need all dialogues, /loc and in-game names of quest mobs, current faction hits.

Updated, thanks.

We need confirmation of the level you can actually do this quest (it was reported as level 1 way back, then level 4, more recently level 15).

We may need confirmation of required faction.

I did the quest a while back, and the item was still Erudite Necro only at that time.

The quest is active and functioning today.

Noclin stands in the Paineel newb area at /loc 981.29, -101.52.

His lost pet spawns in the general area. Just kill the lowbie trash mobs. With 10-20 erudites killing in here the first few days of the TLP servers, we saw Noclin's Pet up quite a few times.

Faction hits were + Heretics and negative to Deepwater Knights, Craftkeepers, Crimson Hands and Gate Callers.

Ahah! This quest, like many other newbie quests (apparently) will let you do the turn-in at 15.

Case closed.

I tried this at 5 and again at 13. If I hail Noclin, he makes various disparaging remarks about how I am too low level to do this.

If I hand him the femur he says he doesn't need it and gives it back.....

I killed Noclins Pet with my level 4 shadowknight. I got killed but managed to get in an HT before I went down, went back and finished it off with another HT before it could heal. Brought the bone to Noclin and he said something like 'How did someone as inexperienced as you get this? I'll see that it gets to the right place.' and he gave me nothing. No faction, no xp, no reward. Nothing.
If you were me and I were you, would we still be friends?

the problem is that you used a shadowknight and not a necro which the quest is set up for
kiled 3 times

I was on my way to the Warrens when this pet started attacking me. I'm a lvl 19 Shaman and he conned green but still attacked. After two swipes he was dead (can you really kill a skeleton?) I remembered reading about this quest so I turned in the remains to the NPC and got XP and faction hits (all I remember was + Heritics and - Deep Water Knights). He then gives you the bone back... Or at least that is what you think happens. Instead you are headed a newbie weapon (+5 Damage) but also -5 CHA and +10 Mama, because of this it is a magic weapon. Pretty cool if you were a newbie.

Ok I was finally aloud to complete this quest

It never let me turn in the item for the award until level 15

# Nov 29 2002 at 11:31 PM Rating: Default
You use to be able to do this quest at level 1. Now its broken and the pet no long even spawns. Some time earlier i was pharming bone chips and getting exp with my low level necromancer. I kept hitting the decaying skeleton spawns and no Noclins Pet. Noclin doesnt innitiate text for me either so right now a BIG FY to SOE. As usual the lower level people get gimped cause they will eventually exp and get upper levels so it does not matter to SOE if a low level quest is broken or not.

Noclin's Pet still spawns. Caught him the other day for the first and last time with a new necro alt. Have only seen him once, so I'm assuming it's a fairly rare spawn. Take yer friends with tracking, and enough cold beer to keep you entertained while waiting. Good luck to you all.

Noclin's Pet does still spawn. done it twice in the last 3 weeks. Once when I was trying to get him to spawn, just kept on killing them skellys and collecting their bones :)

Noclin doesn't though give the quest until you are level 15.

I just made the mistake of giving the Femur to Noclin. He took it, said he'd give it to the appropriate party, and gave me zilch. Argh.
i got irritated
# Sep 05 2002 at 11:54 AM Rating: Decent
ok, i was with my lvl 6 erud nec, and i hailed him, but he said something about fighting a kobold runt, im sure others have recieved message, so i went into city for a bit, when i returned to newb area, his pet was right there! so he attacked me, i had no pet, but barely won, (thank lifetap) and i got the femur, i returned it to noclin, BUT he said something like "how did someone inexperienced as you obtain this, I will make sure it is taken to the propper person" or something to that affect. I didnt get anything, so I'm sure there is a minimum lvl required for quest.

Tried this quest up to lvl 12 with no luck. Noclin wont give you the quest. Happened to pass thru at 16 and he now gives the quest. So must be somewhere between 13 and 16 to get the weapon now.

Today I tried to initate quest text with lvl 6 ERU necro.
No luck.
However I noticed a lvl 50 wiz hail ole' Noclin and got the Text.
I even tried the key words:
[matters of importance}
I'm guessing there is a lvl cap on quest now )
Oh 50 human wiz was indiff. faction
Mine was amiable
Hope that helps
Perhaps Intentionally Disabled ot Nerfed
# May 31 2002 at 9:17 AM Rating: Decent
If you look at the dates of the posts you'll see that the quest was disabled/nerfed/bugged after the new newbie lands quests came online on May 15, 2002.

The timing of it is just too supicious imo. My guess is that it was disabled/nerfed/bugged to ENCOURAGE players to create Necros elsewhere and do quests there for newbie/lowbie equipment.

Why would I say this? Cause it's just human nature that after spending all that time to create quests that the designers would want to ( channel ) users in the direction of their latest efforts.

Also realize that there has to be a justifcation to create these quests to begin with within VI to provide newbie/lowbie quests even though the majority of servers are far beyond needing such quests except for new servers and rarely available Int and Wis items for some slots and the only way to show/justify that would be to show how many did the quests.

All in all I have to commend those at VI for providing the new quests although I'd rather play a Erudite Necro and not have their newbie/lowbie quests disabled/nerfed/bugged.

Can't do quest

I turned in the Femur 3 times. Once at lvl 4, 7 and 10 and Noclin still tells me i don't have enough experience and just takes it giving me nothing in return. I never was able to start the quest myself, had people start it for me and killed Noclin's pet and turned in the femur. i am lvl 11 now and still cannot start it, he tells me the same thing. I petitioned a GM and he said to wait until lvl 15 since that is when the weapon procs. he said he got his a long time ago at lvl 5 but it may have been changed to the lvl of proc. Can anyone verify this for me. getting irritated and am not a Twinkie i could use this weapon. Thanks.

You are correct in saying it was nerfed. I used to be able to do it at level 4. And as far as I can tell you need to go through the convo and agree to do the quest before handing him the femur or he'll just take it. But if I remember the stats, unless they changed it, don't know if it'll be worth it for the level you get it. Heck I was so angry that he wouldn't give me the quest, I got a high level to kill him =) i love being a necro
# May 21 2002 at 9:34 PM Rating: Decent
I just handed in teh femur to him, at levle 10, and he kept it, said he would make sure it got to the right hands, i was amiably and everything, blah
RE: Nada
# May 22 2002 at 5:29 PM Rating: Default
Did the exact same thing to me yesterday. I tried to get him to give me the quest but he just kept saying I was a punk(basically) and referred to me as boyo?? Being a lev 4 necro (and again at 5) he refuses to give the quest . I've done this quest with other characters so I just gave it to him and NADA.
RE: Nada
# May 22 2002 at 7:11 PM Rating: Default
I tried this too at 5th and 6th level. He just asked how it got into the hands of someone like me, if I hail him he tells me to kill beetles or some such. Maybe he's broken.
# May 18 2002 at 3:47 PM Rating: Default
I finally had the opportunity to kill noclin's pet at level 9 for cryin out loud and when I give it to noclin he takes it and says "how did someone like you get ahold of this? I'll make sure it gets to who needs it." (or something similar) and he gives me JACK **** for it. I think I will kill noclin as many times as I can later in the game. that f^cker.

Can't find the pet...
# Feb 27 2002 at 10:54 AM Rating: Decent
I've spent a few hours now at varying times of the day (EQ and RL) running wild around the Paineel Newbie area trying to find this pet and I'm still unable to find it.

Does anyone know if the quest is broken? One thing I've tried is killing all the decaying skeletons, wondering if maybe they're a placeholder for Noclin's pet but still nothing.

Anyone else having this problem? Hailing Noclin doesn't seem to spawn the pet.
RE: Can't find the pet...
# May 10 2002 at 4:33 PM Rating: Default
Maybe it was broken and then fixed. I don't know, but I finally found the pet. You trigger Noclin and after you ask about the reward he turns away from you. Follow his line of site over the hill practicall to the wall and that is where his pet spawns. It isn't immediate though. When I found him there was some guy tring to collect 5000 bone chips & paying handsomely for the stacks I'd saved in the bank for a rainy day. My guess is you have to keep killing all the skellys until the pet shows up.
This still up?
# Feb 19 2002 at 1:44 AM Rating: Decent
Is this quest working? I am starting a non-twink Erud Necro.

I tried hailing Noclin and saying, "What matters of importance." He give me the info and I go searching for that damned skellie.

Nothing, Nada, squat. I bring up my ranger. Have some other necro ask him and use my tracking. Nothing but rats, bats, and bones. No Pets.

What da dilly yo? I want a femur for Elpollodeeablo!

Thanks for any info given!

Own post reply again:

It seems like a random spawn. Noclin's pet was up at high noon. Attacked me at level 6. Wooped him, got my femur. Nice Little weapon...

Back to the warrens for more molars. Damn things made me go up 2 level in about 2 hours.

Who needs Orc Belts? LOL

All you have to do is hail Noclin and ask about the pet and the pet spawns.
#Anonymous, Posted: Nov 24 2001 at 4:42 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) All you whiners need to start playing the game the way it was meant to be played. Which is as a Role Playing game, not a twink game. Verant designed it in a way that you have to EARN the right to user the proc, not just have it. So quit whining and start role playing. The game is designed like a real life adventure. No one is going to give you something REALLY nice until you earn the right to own it. So grow up.

Day and night, day and night I travel back and forth from the Warrens to Noclin Saah hoping for good faction with my human necromancer. Though I have trained here for many days, the faction seems to be staying in its place. I have been gaining exp and faction with my 4 companions, my pet, who always turns out his name is Xabitik, another necromancer, Eenuu, a guild member of HAC, and Iadyenya, an SK. I know that Heretics counts as a faction + with Paineel, though I am not KOS, Noclin and the guards always reply to me, "Is that your BREATH?! Or did something die!", "I wonder how much the tounge of a blithering fool is worth?... now leave before I decide!", and "Oh I didn't know a lump of ???? could speak common... how novel!". If anyone can help me out, please...
good weapon
# Oct 22 2001 at 8:46 PM Rating: Default
This is my 3rd erudite necro so far, i love paineel hehe. anyway dont worry about spawning, u always find this guy or his corpse eventually. u dont wanna find him till about lvl 5 anyway cuz he is tuff for a newbie. its a good weapon for a low level... besides its free. easy enough quest i think....
