Sultin is a Dark Elf in The Temple of Solusek Ro at location 385, 77, 16.

You say, 'Hail, Sultin'

Sultin says 'I am Sultin - keeper of the three [incandescent]s of power and the [rod] of Insidious Glamour. If you are an enchanter, perhaps we can deal.'

You say, 'What are the three incandescents?'

Sultin says 'There are three incandescent items of power - a [wand], [mask] and [gloves]. Are you [interested] in any of them?'

You say, 'I am interested in the mask.'

Sultin says 'An item of power! The incandescent mask. If you will bring me the components to make another, I will give you my own incandescent mask. I will need a glowing mask, found on the skeletal monk in the caverns of Guk. I will also need all three runes of fortune. One rune can be found on the dark elf Enynti in the chasm below Castle Mistmoore. The other two can be purchased for 50 golden coins, one from Mizr N'Mar in the Neriak City Library and the other from Madam Serena in the city of Qeynos. Bring me all three runes and the glowing mask and I will give you your reward.'

As an alternative to the skeletal monk Sultin mentions (other posters have reported his location), the Froglok Scryer also drops the Glowing Mask (as well as other useful old-world caster items). He spawns in Upper Guk at approximately 256, -454, -14, in room number 15 on the EQAtlas map. Previous posts indicate he may be able to spawn in any of the 3 spawn points near that location. The placeholders are various Froglok shamans whose levels are in the low 20s. They respawned approximately every 8 to 12 minutes for me yesterday and today.

Enynti spawns at 138, -100.70, -237 (according to Allakhazam). She's level 26 and is next to two gargoyles (which should mean little to an enchanter, thanks to our pacify spells). She drops Rune of Fortune (which Identifies as "Rune of Fortune: Bottom").

Madame Serena is in South Qeynos at loc -38, 64, 2, south of the Mermaid's Lure, which is near the docks. She appears as a gipsy-style Human woman with an Enchanter pet (sword and shield). She doesn't respond to hails. Allakhazam says she has religious rhymes, though.

Give Madame Serena 5 plat or 50 gold.

"Fifty gold? You must want a rune of fortune. If you want another one, give fifty gold to Mizr N'Mar in the Neriak library."
You gain experience!!

You receive Rune of Fortune (which Identifies as "Rune of Fortune: Top").

Mizr N'Mar is in Neriak Third Gate, in the Neriak Library, at location 914, -1314, -67. He appears as the standard Dark Elf merchant.

You say, 'Hail, Mizr N'Mar'

Mizr N'Mar says 'Have you come to buy a scroll from me?"

He won't respond to anything you say, but give him 5 platinum.

Mizr N'Mar says 'Ahhh - gold. Here is the rune you desire.'

You receive Rune of Fortune (which Identifies as "Rune of Fortune: Middle").

Give Sultin the Glowing Mask and the three Runes of Fortune.

Sultin says 'Solusek Ro does not believe in half measures.'
Sultin says 'Solusek Ro does not believe in half measures.'
Sultin says 'Solusek Ro does not believe in half measures.'
Sultin says 'Fortune favors you .. as will this mask.'

Your Faction standing with Temple of Solusek Ro has been adjusted by 5.
Your faction standing with Shadowed Men has been adjusted by -1.
You gain experience!!

Solusek Ro faction

you can do a bit of the necro boots quest with the rogue shadow man in mm (only shadow there). Something about picking up a flower (a ground spawn) and then giving it to him. DON'T kill him. His name is Ss-ss-something or other.
soloing the monk
# Feb 02 2001 at 8:54 AM Rating: Default
I am a level 29 enchanter, and I soloed the monk.

If you let the monk stun you, or the necro get his spell off, you are toast, and will surely die.

assume ogre form so that the monk cannot stun you. Use rune and all buffs. Start by mezzing the necro. If he resists, you are in deep ****. He will fear you, while monk beats the crap out of you. After you have succeeded in mezzing the necro, then mez the monk. The monk is the less serious threat. Mez the pet. Now Tashani the necro and charm him. Set him onto the monk. Nuke and whirl the monk as needed for your pet necro to win. If your pet breaks charm, remez everyone, then mem blur everyone.

After your pet necro breaks charm, if he has good health, mez and mem blur him. If he is on the edge of death, mez and nuke for a bit of added exp

Assume troll form for regen, and bandage yourself up if needed.

# Feb 12 2001 at 7:22 PM Rating: Default
Correction on Ogre form, it does NOT prevent you from being stunned. I agree, mezz necro, this will agro other two. I have found the aoe stun buys enough time to get a mezz off on the monk (or anything stunnable) before the stun wears off. tash the monk, tash the necro, charm the necro, sick it on the monk. this should be more than enough. let the necro die to the monk. You arent here for exp, you are here for the mask. The least trouble the better. root and nuke the monk to death and get your mask
RE: soloing the monk
# Feb 02 2001 at 9:04 AM Rating: Default
Correction. Do not bother mezzing the necro's pet. Just tell the necro to attack the monk, once you have charmed the necro. Remember to tell the necro to taunt. Pet is not a problem. Necro is the big threat, then the monk the lesser problem, and you can forget the pet.
lvl 40 Druid can solo this quest...

First go to upper guk, the heart spider room. Drop into the water and swim around until you find the skeletal monk room. First, buff yourself up, slap a regen and a ds on, and root/dot the necro next to the monk, letting its pet beat itself to death on you (if you can get a Firestrike off on the necro, that helps). Then all you have to do is med up, root/dot the monk, and rinse and repeat if he doesn't have the mask.

On to Mistmoore... Superior Camo gets you all the way to the back of the chasm where the DE chick is. Harmony her, then pull her with snare (be careful that the wandering vampiric ancille is not walking by). When she's off the ramp, root/dot/nuke until she dies. Don't worry about the wolves, they don't mind the action.

Now to Qeynos. If your faction isn't great with Madame Serena, buy a bunch of brandy and give it (4 at a time) to the captain in the Mermaid's Lure. When Serena's indifferent, give her 50 gold and collect yer rune.

Finally, to Neriak. I'm a wood elf, so I camoflauged myself before I ran inside. Periodically while running to Neriak 3rd Quarter, I refreshed the invis, and when I got to the library and stood infront of the quest mob, I was safe (the quest mob is Beta Neutral faction). Give him the gold, then port yerself to Lavastorm, run to the Temple of Solusek Ro, and collect an Incandescent Mask for a friend, or your pocketbook.

Have fun, this quest was a blast!

might help so i post :
Well to get mask u should find the secret room with skeleton monk and tempus in upper guk mask if very common there whereas it hard to get on scryer with scryer having ph.
For the rune the easy ones are qeynos and neriak except if ur unlucky with ur religion for neriak.
Madam serena is in an inn near the port as far as i remeber (or a bar but near the port anyway)
For lybrary just give the money and pray :)

For the MM rune well i used an over secured group with lvl 40 peeps but i didnt know if wolf would aggro or not.
In fact as we stayed far away they didnt aggro during fight ( we fought in room tho)
Only pb u might have is a wanderer or monsters running away so make sure u mez the gargs and that enindy is rooted.
If u want a lot of security have someone with evac :)
A bard is also handy to get in there because his invis wont fade at the wrong moment and that those ******* aggro wolf form

Once u get all runes just go to sol temple and give them to that guy :)

I think its all i have to say about this quest

You raise faction with the temple by killing their enemies, The Shadowed Men.

There are also 2 quests in South Ro that also raise temple faction.

Ortallius requires 4 dervish cutthroat rings

Rathmanna Allin will might give you a spell scroll for 30gp. You dont need to give him 30gold it can be any denomination as long as it totals 3pp worth of coin.

I'm sorry to say that you've pretty much ruined your Sol Ro faction for good.

don't hail that guy.
RE: Efreeti
# Feb 16 2001 at 4:03 AM Rating: Decent
correct me if i am wrong, but cant you raise your sol ro faction by killing shadowman? there are also quests you can do such as giving tarn vislin (spelling?), the erudite enchanter merchant in highhold a bloodstone for one of the enchanter quest items. or giving 50 gold to the enchanter gypsie in lavastorm for another enchanter quest item. a bloodstone is cheaper, i would suggest buying just one and checking the faction and if it works, buy about 20 or 40 or so, and that would be one fast way to up that sol ro faction.
RE: Efreeti

Yea but who is he? Have you ever seen/heard of him before?

Lost faction
# Nov 26 2000 at 3:05 PM Rating: Decent
ok, i was doing this quest and decided to explore around Solsek. I found this secret passage and went down this long hallway. at the bottom what a lava pit and a big genie looking guy with a name like targaz or something like that. I hailed him and he turned around and said, I liked you better when you were quiet. And my faction went down with Solsek. Before this i was indifferent to everyone, afterward i think i was dubious, but all i know is i tried to hail the sultin guy to turn in my stuff and he said stuff like, i dont speak to slim like you. So i had to illusion DE and benevolence. Who the hell is that dumb guy and how can i raise faction?
RE: Lost faction
# Feb 16 2001 at 4:04 AM Rating: Decent
check my post above. there is a fast way to improve faction in it. if you got a little spare cash, say around 10 to 20 plat or so
RE: Lost faction
# Jan 05 2001 at 5:57 AM Rating: Decent
You can raise your faction again by killing Shadowed men and their pets. There are also three quests. Check out the faction section on Illia's bestialry for the temple
Faction w/ DE
# Nov 12 2000 at 7:30 AM Rating: Default
Ok as a younger high elf enchantress i didn't know better and killed guards in nek forest. I'm Kos to the dark elf city.
bad faction with:
Dark Bargainers <neriak residents>
Dread guards inner and outer
Being an independent person not wanting help i looked up mobs to raise this faction i failed couldn't find any. All though i found 2 easy quest one being in Neriak doesn't help me i'm KOS...another is in so. ro you turn in lightstones and greater light stones to a DE. Smith Tv Ysa. All though you can't be KOS but i'm sure being the enchanter i am i can manage to do one of the quest then i can get into neriak.

Mistmoore part
# Aug 16 2000 at 11:00 AM Rating: Default
Is the Mistmoore part easy? I'm only familiar with the Graveyard and part of where you can go up the cavern and through the front gate.

Where is the Chasm below Mistmoore? That secret wall in the Graveyard? Help appreciated.
Whew Mistmoore part complete
# Aug 23 2000 at 4:41 PM Rating: Good
The Chasm is opposite in direction to the Graveyard. Enynti is guarded by 2 gargoyles (all medium blues at lvl 30 I think).

What I did was charm one of the gargoyles to fight the other gargoyle while I nuked Enynti (3-4 nukes I think and she was dead... around 500 hit points I'd think)

There is a roamer that comes up there, so I timed it and charmed right after the roamer left. Thank Erollisi Marr the roamer did not come back... but then again I could always mez'em :- )

I was so lucky with the mistmoore part. I went in mistmoore to look around and find the chasm. I walked to this part where there were wolves, and i saw enyti's corpse lieing there. I looted it and to my surprise the rune was on her. I quickly left and completed the quest.
giving items
# Aug 15 2000 at 3:30 PM Rating: Default
Aye, giving stacks of items is a BAD idea... BUT, by ctrl-clicking on a stack, you can take the top item off the stack swiftly and not have to select 1, give, select 1, give, select 1, give, select 1, give and get a reward.

When is Madame Serena There does she have any special time that she is there or not there please post any info you got
RE: spawn
# Feb 16 2001 at 4:07 AM Rating: Decent
if she isnt standing outside the building by the dock, she is inside halfway up the stairs buried in the wall. enough of her is visible to hand her the 50 gold though
RE: spawn
# Aug 29 2000 at 12:42 AM Rating: Default
Madam Serena (after 2 tries at looking everywhere in Qeynos) is on the stairs in the Bait Shop on the pier where the boat to Erudin stops.
RE: spawn
# Sep 05 2000 at 2:58 AM Rating: Default
She is supposed to be under the awning outside, but generally she is inside staring at the wall. She won't talk to you when you hail her, but she gives the rune for the cash, np.
quest items in stacks
# Aug 10 2000 at 8:29 PM Rating: Decent
If you hand the guard stacks of booze you're wasting your money - a stack of an item only counts as one item. Test it with some bonechip quest somewhere, if you need to hand the guy 4 bonechips for something try handing him a stack of 20, he *doesn't* reward you 5 times. Won't even reward you once unless someone else gave him 3 chips before you. Would be nice if it worked that way but it doesn't.
RE: quest items in stacks
# Oct 18 2000 at 5:30 PM Rating: Decent
The bone quest you mention, as well as others that need multiples (the Tunpy Tonic comes to mind) can take stacks of items so long as the stacks are those required to satisfy the quest.

The bone Quest requires 4 bone chips (usually 1 per slot) but you can also drop 4 stacks of 4 bones each and get 4 completions.

The Tumpy Tonics require a kiola nut and a water, while not dropped in stacks you can drop one water, one nut, another water (seperate slot), and the lst nunt to get 2 completions.

As with all shortcuts... your mileage my vary.
RE: quest items in stacks
# Oct 07 2000 at 2:38 PM Rating: Default
actually, there's a variety of minor quests where it will.... the 4 bone chips in Kaladim is ok to hand in in stacks, and then even 4 stacks of 4 at the same time. Giving muffins to the dorf in the freeport in is the same way. even though he only want's 1, you give him 4 in a stack, and fill all for slots (16 total), and you get faction 16 times....

you can never put more than 4 in a slot though, as you'll only get return on the first 4, not the full 20. giving anymore than 4 per slot is a waste, but you can fill all four slots in the trade window at the same time.

trying it out is the way to get the answer....
RE: quest items in stacks
# Jul 26 2001 at 10:16 AM Rating: Default
Just a bit of info, In High Hold Pass, I gave the guard a stack of 14 orc scalps to test your theroy, each scalp yeilded exp and faction bonus. You can do as few as 1 or as many as 4 full stacks, and get exp and faction bonus. :)
where is this person?

where do i find this person to buy the rune from ?
Info wrong..
# Jul 31 2000 at 9:53 PM Rating: Good
The person who you purchase the stone from in Neriak isn't Mirzna N`Mar, but Mizr N`Mar.

Well my friend is a lvl 28 enchanter..she has been raising her faction with the brandy and almost lvld...will this part of the incandecent quest give a lvl 6 alot of XP or no??
# Jul 26 2000 at 5:54 PM Rating: Decent
If you go inside the building Madame Serena is near there will be a captain (don't remember his name). If you talk to him he will mention that he has many stories, which he will tell you if you buy him a drink (brandy I believe).. Buying him drinks should raise your faction with Serena to apprehensive, combine that with benevolance (and possibly an illusion) and you should be able to do this quest.

NOTE: You can save yourself some time, by handing him the drinks in stacks of 20.
Ha does not work
# Jul 26 2000 at 3:43 AM Rating: Decent
I went to Qeynos to get the rune.. I got the mask already..
1) I am an High Elf and Kos in Qeynos
2) I went to her and did minor Illusion and Benevolence ( got nothing)
3) I did invis as a human still nothing..
4) I did human and benevolence and still nothing..
All 3 times she told me I dont deal with beings like you.... what the heck is this..I sthis quest broke or what.. Any other ideas please let me know I really want this mask.. And now I am wondering what is going to happen in Neriak when I get there..

grr...well you are KOS that means bad fraction read the post before yours or kill gnoll puppies IN BB all day your fraction will get better
RE: Ha does not work
# Aug 29 2000 at 8:33 AM Rating: Good
I am a DE enchanter, and spent alot of time at the Treants. I am very KOS in Qeynos, and the first time I walked in Madam Serena called the guards on me in the time I dropped invis and before my minor illusion finished casting. So, I did the brandy quest, guard came in and killed me after I had given half of the 120 brandy's I bought. Having lost my level I decided to fix this instead of trying again. After about 6 hours of killing in Black Burrow(yes all very green to me, but for a while I stood at the entrance taking care of trains) I am now indifferent to the guards when I have human illusion on with benevolence. Still a couple people in there that hate me(druids maybe?) And was able to purchase the rune from Madam Serena, although she still didn't respond to a hail.

I screwed my own Qeynos faction a while back too. Blackburrow is one way to get it up, the raiders along the water in NK are another. Keep in mind that you don't have to kills gnolls in blackburrow to get faction. You can "tag" them, running up to every newbie you see fighting in there, stabbing at each gnoll once, then moving on. If you go in on a busy time of day you will be getting spammed with constant faction changing messages as the human and erudite newbies finish each gnoll.
The runes
# Jul 21 2000 at 2:28 PM Rating: Decent
o Yes, the runes are no drop.
o Yes, you just give then 50 gold (5 plat works too)
o Madame Serena or Mizr N`Mar do not actually sell the runes (i.e. they are never viewable in their inventory)
o Only way to get them is to simply give them the cash
two questions
# Jul 13 2000 at 3:38 PM Rating: Decent
Are the runes no drop, and do you give her 50 gp for the rune or do you have to buy it like she was a merchant?
one more bit
# Jul 12 2000 at 3:04 PM Rating: Default
As long as you're not KoS to Serena just minor illusion close enough and do it. Note other enchanter quests improve beta neutral too which I'm GUESSING will help you here.
lol on the charm

Anyways an easier but more costly way might be to buy away from Marr in Neriak

Get a higher lvl friend to charm her. She will then be indifferent to you. Make the exchange and both gate out, you first )

It should work

# Jul 12 2000 at 1:58 AM Rating: Decent
