Talk to Miadera Shadowfyre in the cleric guild and she will tell you that she seeks a fellow apostle of Cazic Thule to assist her in the [summoning of terror].

You say, 'Hail, Miadera Shadowfyre'
Miadera Shadowfyre says, 'Ahhhahahaha! The terror that lays over this city like a blanket tingles my bones with vigor. I seek a fellow apostle of Cazic-Thule to assist me in the [summoning of Terror].'

At worse than Amiable:

You say, 'summoning of Terror'
Miadera Shadowfyre says, 'I sense the potential to learn the ways of fear within you. Continue striving to master your fear and one day perhaps you can be of service to our Lord Cazic-Thule.'

At Amiable:

You say, 'summoning of Terror'
Miadera Shadowfyre says, 'It will be a frightfully fulfilling summoning. Alas, there are a few components I need before we may proceed. I would be most thrilled if you would bring me an eye of Urd, some basalt drake scales, the lens of Lord Soptyver, and a lock of widowmistress hair.'

To do this, she needs:

1) an eye of urd (from Guk),

2) some basalt drake scales (Rathe Mts),

3) the lens of Lord Soptyvr (located in Beholders Maze, aka Gorge of King Xorbb), and

4) a lock of widowmistress hair (located in Najena).

Hand the items to Miadera Shadowfyre and receive a Mundane Mask.

Madera Shadowfyre says, 'Yes! Can you feel the terror in the air, prickling your flesh, and standing your hair on end? The chanters have summoned the avatar of Terror! Quickly take this mundane mask to him and he shall forge it into a valuable symbol to be worn by loyal apostles of Terror!

Your faction standing with Gate Callers has been adjusted by -200.
Your faction standing with Craftkeepers has been adjusted by -200.
Your faction standing with Crimson Hands has been adjusted by -200.
You gain experience!
You receive 7 gold from Miadera Shadowfyre.
You receive 5 platinum from Miadera Shadowfyre.

Avatar of terror shouts, 'Grrrraaaarrrrg! The stench of fear permeates the walls of this city! I will forge one item for the faithful of our Lord Cazic-Thule! Make haste! My time here is short!'

Give the mask to avatar of terror who appeared in the nearby square room to the east, and receive your Terror Forged Mask.

*avatar of terror says, 'I grant you a mask crafted with my own essence! Wear it in honor of your devotion to our Lord Cazic-Thule!'
Your faction standing with Heretics has been adjusted by 50.
Your faction standing with Deepwater Knights has been adjusted by -50.

Amiable faction with Heretics required. Anything less than indifferent gets: 'Begone from this place! Infidels like you have no place among the faithful of Cazic-Thule!' Indifferent gets: 'I sense the potential to learn the ways of fear within you. Continue striving to master your fear and one day perhaps you can be of service to our Lord Cazic-Thule.'

+250 to Heretics
# Aug 09 2018 at 12:25 PM Rating: Excellent
This quest gives a nice +250 faction hit to Heretics, and can be done by anyone with a good Paineel faction, not only clerics. Although it might be faster to kill sentinels in Erudin if you're only looking for the Heretics faction (+45 each). At level 110 the quest took a few hours because of rare spawns (Lord Soptyvr, The Widowmistress) and an uncommon drop (Eye of Urd) off uncommon ghouls in Lower Guk. In the end I was able to briefly summon the avatar of terror that was still missing on Zam.
cant click it from inventory

I found one of the parts and for giggles decided to gather the rest.

This mask is NOT clickable from inventory for other classes/races/deities.

my story.

In an nutshell, I got the items needed (camping the widowmistress was tough, because on my server it appears that she only drops the item at 11 AM EST)

and then I had no idea that I needed faction just to get into Paineel. I am a follower of Karana and am likely KoS in Paineel although I dont know b/c I cant get in.

I never realized that. Being human I didn't think it would be that bad. I am told killing kobolds in The Warrens will increase faction but doing that forever for zippo exp is just way to much time for this mask.

I asked if it was possible for an item to be diety specific and being on the original game I was told no by my guild.

So here I am stuck with no drop ingredients for a nice no drop mask in a place I cant get into and will take too long to raise faction.

Just completed this quest (March 5, 2003). It is pretty straighforward except for the Basalt Drake Scale. As several other posters have already pointed out, the easiest way to get the scale is to kill 'a drake', which is one the PH's for Hasten Bootstrutter. Hasten is the guy who give out jboots. Look up Hasten in the Bestiary and you will find instructions on how to locate him and/or his PH.

The Quest work fine.

Just finished the quest Today, went to Paineel and hailed Miadera Shadowfire
Had always the same reply bla bla bla [summoning of Terror]. I get the same message as i asked 'what summoning of Terror', so i tried to give the four quest items :
Basalt Drake Scale, Eye of Urd, Lens of Lord Soptyver, Lock of Widowmistress. That gave me some experience, went from warmly to an ally with Heretics and got a ****** little mask : Mundane Mask AC2 NO DROP which lowered my faction from Amiably to Everquest to Dubiously hehe.
But one has changed in the city of Paineel, the Avatar of Terror -wich is a mob just room after that of Miadera- was shouting repetitly something like : my time is short be haste i will forge one item for the faithful of our lord Cazic-Thule.
So i went back to the Avatar of Terror, gave him the Mundane Mask and YES!!! he gave me back the Terror Forged Mask. That brought my faction back with Everquest form Dubiously to As an Ally )

Only thing I know of, if your a cleric of innoruk is the 'engulfing darkness' effect from the necklace you get in Neriak. I have it on my troll shaman, but you get the quest from the Cleric guild....

Apparently its useable by :
Troll, Dark Elf and Human
Shaman and or Cleric.
· 'Valdon Gravedancer' Terris-Thule. Dwarven Cleric 34th circle.
· 'Junglebug Sugarpants' Terris-Thule. Halfling Druid. 52nd season.

Has this quest changed recently? I started on this at like 20th level (when i first asked her about it) and now she just laughs at me when i ask "what summoning of terror?" and i'm level 35 with kindly faction, I'm an erudite cleric of Cazic-Thule to boot.

Can this be multiquested at indifferent faction? I looted this tonight while running through the gorge, and I'm a wood elf who kills heretics for sport, so they don't like me much in Paineel, but I can sneak.
Found Scale
# Nov 17 2001 at 11:45 PM Rating: Default
I have been camping this scale for 7 hours I needed two of them for 2 Euridte Clerics in my guild. The first on dropped off of the first Basalt drake we killed nothing unusual. But the second did not pop for 6 hours and 34 basalt drakes later that did not drop the Scale. It finally dropped off of "A Drake". What the heck is up with that. Also the pops we had 2 at a time by killing everything the surrounding area. I hope this helps all those that follow and good luck.

Why I Am Pissed
# Oct 09 2001 at 9:03 AM Rating: Default
Ok, I was camping PBB's, and suddenly I saw a new EE on top of statue in the middle. Conned blue to me, I'm a 41 Cleric. Well, most EE's, even the lords, only take 1 cast of Wrath and 1 cast of Smite or Force. However, on the lords, sometimes you gotta clean up with a melee, too. Anyway, It took me about 3-4 Wraths to get Lord Soptyver, and then his pet took about 3 Dissmis Summoned blasts. When I looted the lens, I was curious bout what it was, thought maybe this was Borxx's replacement for Staff of the Observer's quest. However, finding out it's for Hum/Erud and I'm a Dwarf, I'm a little pissed off. So, if you read this and on the Lany's server, I would gladly MQ this with you if you get the other 3 components. However, if I have it in bank forever, I'm trashing it. Good luck all you vile Cazic-worshipping pagans!

Level Makes a heck of a difference I guess
I went to this cap with my Level 51 Bard to get a couple handfuls of Eye nerves (bracers for a Warrior Twink) and discovered thatthe Gem. Jewle loot makes camping it worth the time - its usually empty - and someone else wants it I let them have it. Once I logged in with Soptyvr & the other 2 Lords all up - and I had camped right smack in the middle.

I was making breakfast so didnt notice I was getting hit for about 5 mins and then as typical Chant of frost, Chant of Flame alternated about 2 times each and the Eye was dead. - Charm is only a nuisance and the worse thing that has happened is the Eyes have died before I can get back on their agro list after Charm wears off and the body vanishes.

Can this mask be cast from inventory? By that I mean cast from a general slot and not equiped. If so any class could use the effect.
# Aug 25 2001 at 9:59 PM Rating: Default
Just to make sure everyone knows, this mask is NO DROP. I did this quest as a barbarian warrior in hopes of selling it. Then at the end I found that it is NO DROP. The mask's effect is Fear. The only good thing I got from the quest was my faction in Paineel went from indifferent to amiable. So this is a semi easy way to get faction in Paineel, but does little else for you if your are not a human or erudite cleric.
basalt drake scale
# Aug 24 2001 at 10:48 AM Rating: Default
as stated above, "a drake", the PH for hasten, has the scale. i didn't have any luck with basalt drakes. if you kill hasten, then a drake will spawn for you (use a tracker if you can; he wanders like hasten does). i would like to amend the conventional theory that a drake is hasten's PH to hasten being the PH of the drake.
# Aug 09 2001 at 5:58 PM Rating: Decent
Is this multi-questable? I have the lens, and my cleric buddy has the rest. We are both ally in Painel cause we went on a slaughter erudin spree one day for faction. Could anyone tell me if you have tried?

Thank you

Last part of the quest...

Imagine my surprise when I handed in the components and I didn't get this mask, but got another no drop mask with no stats. Turns out, the guildmaster summons the avatar of terror, and you have to give the mask to him for him to make you the terror forged mask. When you turn in the four components, the avatar of terror will immediately spawn in another room in the cleric guild building. You had better hurry, he despawns if you don't turn in the mask within a few minutes.

Basalt drake scales
# May 12 2001 at 10:57 AM Rating: Good
After killing all the black drakes (basalt, onyx, ebon and obsidian - lizard men around the sphinx are PH) for over six hours, I decided to try something different and kill the "a drake" PH for Hasten Bootstrutter. BAM scales. I just wish I would have known they were no-drop or I wouldn't have used my druid...
Questions on Urd

It was mentioned that the Urd Ghoul Wiz Spawns in about ever camp.

Does this include the BR??
Lens of Lord Soptyver
# Jan 24 2001 at 12:03 AM Rating: Default
Not sure why the people here are saying the lord is so tough, I soloed him today at lvl34 (druid) and killed him in about 20 sec. Unfortunatly looks like the lens will be worthless to me. He did dispell my buffs and G-wolf form, but while he was busy dispelling, I was nuking his A$$ to death.

# Mar 06 2001 at 6:51 AM Rating: Default
Not that hard, warrior lvl 32 here, got lens today from Soptyver. He conned blue but we all know warriors tend to die from blue critters. :)
Lost 2 HP Bubs but no wonder when I was so stupid and killed the pet first THEN Sop.
4 hours my eye!
# Dec 15 2000 at 5:04 PM Rating: Decent
This quest was a big pain in my butt timesink wise. Maybe 4 hours to walk from Lower Guk to Paineel, but NOT to camp everything. Here is my experience:

Eye of Urd - Easiest item to get, as long as you are of sufficient level to group in Lower Guk. You will have the opportunity to pull Urd Wizards from just about every camp in the zone. Not a common drop, but since you'll be there doing the XP grind or hoping for Guk Loot to drop, its palatable.

Lens of Lord Soptyver - Soptyver is shy, and is about an 8 hour spawn. I personally camped there for 6 hours at level 30. It wasn't terrible, because killing the EEs and lesser Lords is reasonable entertaining, about half provided at least some XP for me, and you can hopefully pick up a PBB or two. Word of warning, when Lord Soptyver spawns, ALL THREE Lords spawn together, regardless of how the spawn has been broken up before that. Soptyver cons even to level 30, and the three Lords together killed me and the few other EE campers that were there (mid/upper thirties).

Basalt Drake Scales - VERY annoying. Went there at 40, so no xp. Took five hours to get one to drop. Basalt Drakes are the rarest of the Drake spawns, and it took five Basalts before one coughed up a scale. They spawn on the hillside near Zazamoukh the Sphynx. Beware, because he did aggro me once when I got too zealous in chasing down a Drake. Kill all the drakes you see to get Basalts to spawn.

Widowmistress Hair - Also terribly annoying. I just did her at 40. Everything in Najena is green then, so no xp off anything but the Widowmistress, but there is no way you can solo her, you need a Tank. I spent SIX hours on her, the SIXTH Widowmistress spawn finally dropped hair, and I had to wait through FIVE PHs.

Good luck with the quest all, it is not bad except for the time investment.

RE: 4 hours my eye!
# Jan 18 2001 at 9:01 AM Rating: Default
In regards to Lord is very accurate on what was said. I must warn others however of the dangers regarding killing this "eye".
It is an enchanter. I and my friend went to kill it, we are lvl 32 enchanter and a 35 ranger. It dispelled us in 2 casts, even though the ranger was keeping even in the fight. (I had to keep mezzing the pet, since the eye would cancel magic, and Rune my partner). But unfortunatly the ranger died. I managed to finish off the eye (it had less than a half bubble of life left when it killed the ranger) and loot it, then I gated.

I strongly recommend that if anyone below 33 is going to attempt to kill this eye, that you have at LEAST a tank, and a main healer, and another person, to continuously cast buffs on the tank. Otherwise, you will lose. (A warrior, cleric and a druid would be a good for killing - and add chanter, to use "cursed minds" and "strip enhancements".

Best of luck. The Lens is no let the cleric loot. The optic nerves...just sell them (unless there is a quest for that as well - looking it up now)

Well, Soptvyr can be tough. But not that tough. I've wasted him 3 times at level 30. Both times it was me a and another 30 Druid. Harmony him and his pet and take out his lesser cronies one at a time by rooting thier pets and tag-team nuking. Then do the same to Soptyvr. The pets are easy to dispatch with a couple of 'Dismiss Summoned' while they're rooted.

1. They're enchanters = they charm. Don't have any heal spells memmed, cause if you get charmed you'll heal him. <Pain in the butt>
2. Have a system worked out between you and anyone else around to notify if you've been charmed. (i.e. /shout C) That way peeps have time to invis and/or un-*** the area before you aggro em.

First things first, the mask, the helm, and the sheild are NOT for Cazic-Thule worshipers only. You just need to be a Cleric that is Erudite or Human.

To get this item you simply need to raise your faction with the heritics. To do that you can do a few things. Kill the Erudin Emissaries in Toxullia Forest, kill Tol Nicelot in Erudin, or Bait Masterson in the Qeynos sewers. After you think you have done enought to raise your faction I would bind in Qeynos and have Wizard/Druid Teleport you into the forest, to avoid conflict with the guards.
#Anonymous, Posted: Sep 17 2000 at 1:27 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Well, unlike the foolish people of Qeynos who give there Holy items to anyone who will enter the Flying Saucer willingly, this item and all of them from Paineel are diety Cazic Thule specific. Cant use it if you dont follow him.
#Anonymous, Posted: Jan 06 2001 at 12:08 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) um, check before you post. Not diety specific. Go home thnx
RE: terror forged mask
# Aug 28 2000 at 5:36 AM Rating: Default
Dark elves are hated by paineel erudites. So unless you killed erudite emissary to get faction or other ways you might wanna work on your faction.
