He needs a golden rod (from a froglok priest in guk) and an enchanted shining stone. The enchanted shining stone is made from a shining stone from shadow men, take that stone to Cynthia, a gypsie in the rathe mountains and give it and 50gp to get it enchanted. Then go to Highkeep and get the stone transmuted by Tarn Visilin in the library for another 50 gp. The two steps for getting the stone each raise faction with beta neutral and can be done separately from the rest of the quest for those who just need a faction boost.

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, 'rod'

Sultin says 'I am keeper of the rod of Insidious Glamour, a device of guile and deceit. The rod will increase the charisma of whoever holds it. Are you [interested] in obtaining the [rod]?'

No matter what combination I tried, he wouldn't respond to anything but the trigger word rod which would repeat the above line.

Here is what he's supposed to say.

Sultin says, 'If I am to give you this rod, you must bring me the parts to make another. I will need the Golden Rod from the froglok priest in Guk, as well as a Shining Stone from our mortal enemies, the Shadowed Men. Once you have obtained the Shining Stone, you will need to get it enchanted. Cynthia of the Rathe Mountain Gypsy Clan will enchant the Shining Stone for you - give it to her with 50 golden coins. When the Stone is fully enchanted, bring it and the rod to me and I will give you a Rod of Insidious Glamour.'

  • 1. Retrieve a golden rod. (Upper Guk)

    Head to Upper Guk and kill a froglok priest. Loot Golden Rod.

  • 2. Retrieve a Shining Stone from Shadow Men (Various Zones)

    Find some Shadow Men in Lesser Faydark, Neriak Forest, Commonlands or South Karana. Kill and loot Shining Stone.

  • 3. Give Shining Stone to Cynthia in Mountains of Rathe. (Mountains of Rathe)

    Give the Shining Stone (Enchanted Lapis Lazuli) and 50 gold or 5 platinum to her and she will enchant it. She gives you Glamour Stone.

    Receive Glamour Stone [Twice Enchanted Lapis Lazuli]

  • 4. Transmute the stone in High Keep. (High Keep)

    Give Tarn Visilin the Glamour Stone and 50 gold or 5 platinum. He gives you Glowing Glamour Stone.

    Tarn Visilin says, 'Your glamour stone has been fully enchanted. Take it and the golden rod back to the temple of Ro.'

    Receive Glowing Glamour Stone [Thrice Enchanted Lapis Lazuli].

  • 5. Bring the Golden Rod and Glowing Glamour Stone back to Sultin. (Temple of Solusek Ro)

    Sultin says 'Well done, adventurer. You have kept your part of the bargain, so I keep mine. Here is your rod.'

    You receive a Rod of Insidious Glamour.

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

    Can the effect be used from inventory? I would love to get this for my Ranger to help buy/sell things but want to make sure I can USE it.

    Hiya all was just wondering if this could be multi-quested or not.... Im in a bad posistion to go and get the rod that comes outta Guk. Thus becuase I happen to be on Vallon Zek this being PvP and it happens to be crawling with darkies... Me being a high elf chanter. I tried once to go in and get this myself. I had on my DE Illusion but some guy came up to me and wacked me anyways. thus he found out that I was not a DE. So he tore me up to say the least :/ So I figured id have my friend go down with his iksar or DE illusion mask and get the rod. Oh ya he is like prob gettin close to 50 now so i dont think many will be able to just run by and wack him Heh. So i was just wonderin if i could send him in to get thatpart and then we go do the other part. Then we could meet up and I dont no what way it would work if any way but id have him give him the rod and ill give the rest of the stuff i guess. So if you know the answer please post a response oh ya if i said any of this wrond please correct me cuz i im always willing to learn more. =)

    o ya im anon becuase i didnt wanna take the time to sing up sence i dont think i will be ostin anything else any time soon but thanks for a respose of you gve me any.

    Definitely multi-questable.

    I got the rod one night as I was exploring guk with my monk. I turned in the rod with my monk, logged, got my chanter on, turned in the remainder items, got the rod at level 12.

    As a troll shammy I just pulled up a pet, though he was a crappy green, medded to full, regen on both of us, as well as alacrity and talisman, then went in. The priest has about 500 hp, the rest can really absorb it. Had to heal myself once, pet once, and nuke like insanity. Nukes only work because dots just will be nullified by heals when they're low. For Cynthia I just killed Master Whoopal, turned in his head (Disciple Symbol of Innoruuk) and got the halfling illusion mask, turned it on, bam, indifferent. Just gotta do it again for HHK.

    Ok I did this quest as a lvl 45 Druid for my enchanter.

    Solo'ed the Priest in guk no problem and didn't have any agro's. He dropped the rod on the 3rd or 4th kill.

    I must have been really lucky because I looted the Stone on my first kill. Again solo'ed Shadowed men, in Innothule Swamp. I have camped them several times and there is never anyone there :)

    You have to love it when some clown say's, "Yeah, I did this with my 55th level character, easy as pie", or "Solo'ed the Priest in guk no problem and didn't have any agro's"- what a surprise! Check your level versus who the quest was intended for!!!!. Just shut it & let those who have done the quest at the level it was intended for comment


    Every bloody quest you see this, yes you are soooo uber.... now ****-off

    His comments are useful, because they give those of us who are "level appropriate" for the mob a sense of how frequenlty the rod and the stone drop, and what zone he obtained the zone from.

    I do agree that there are a lot of feebs who spend too much time bragging on these posts, but if they mix in a little useful content, I don't mind the bragging. Much.

    I just took the stone to Cynthia in RM and I gave it to her along with 50gp and she said "Aren't you forgetting something?" Then the usual message off "Errr, I don't know what to do with this, blah blah blah" Anyone have any idea what I did wrong? /shrug

    This is the perfect quest to do for alittle cash when you have some spare time..your faction with Temple of So Ro will be decent after dealing with the shadowed men...and the rod is very easy to sell...on mith marr at least..anyways, it's a great quest, i would highly suggest it.

    i think i am having bad luck or somethng,camped the Shadow men in WC for 8 hours, got a pair of gloves for ench but no stone, got a stack of essence but still no luck i logged an was wondering i am not sure that if it is no rent, some ppl say yes and others no, i just think its getting on my nerves. I think ill try another zone cause i dont seem to have good luck if you can give me info that would be good, Flecei, 35 monk Mith marr sever

    # Oct 20 2001 at 9:49 PM Rating: Default
    The shining stone is no drop and lore but it's NOT no rent, meaning you CAN log after you get it and it will not disappear. As for the drop of the stone, I camped the shadowed men in WC for about 3 hours one day and got it and then it dropped in about 5 minutes another day. It's just the luck of the draw really. If you really want to make things easier, then go to Innothule Swamp and camp the shadowed men there. Upper Guk is right there too and you can knock out 2 birds with 1 stone, that's what I do anyway. Plus Rathe Mountains is very near there too and that's where you should go next, it's alot less running around if you do it this way. :)

    to correct that answer, yes anyone can do the quest and sell it or give to an alt, hehe. My dwarf pali did the quest for my enchanter.

    Heh, I once grouped with a Dark Elf bard...needless to say she was using a Mask of the Deciever. So, assuming you have one of those, the answer is Yes :)

    The rod was very difficult when I first got it. I had a group of mid 20's and I was the only one who managed to survive. There are about 6 Froggies around the Priest and they all have a fairly High Magic resistence. Best bet is to bring mostly tanks and a healer with you.

    Prices change from server to server. Some servers don't have as many people interested in doing the scutt work of the wuests to obtain an item so they will have to pay more to those that do. Veeshan has a great many questers so quest items are cheaper than average listing here.

    Yesterday i did this quest. I went to the temple or ro and hailed sultin. he says blah blah blah blah blah. he will tell you to get a golden rod , and a shiny stone. He tells you to get the stone fully enchanted . Cynthia is always camped and i had to tell the person not to kill her . I gave her the shiny stone and 50gp and she said here i enchanted the stone. to get it enchanted the rest of the way take it to Tarn in hhk. Take it to Tarn and give the stone and 50gp and he will enchant it the rest of the way. for the golden rod. i guess i got lucky me and soem guildies was going to camp the ancient crocodile in uguk and i seen the priest with this rod so we cleaned out the room. ( i got my gator scale arms later that night too =D). Then all you do is take it back to sultin and give him the golden rod and stone and then you have it. Now i dunno if i should keep both chr in my hand or my cruide stien and stien of maggok.

    Last week end I finally got around to getting the golden rod from Guk, then headed out to Sol Ro a few days later. I hailed the guy (Sultin) and asked around the rod and all that jazz, but he never mentions Tarn Vislin from High Keep. The stone I had was a Shining Stone, and he said he wanted a Shining Stone, so I gave him the Stone and Rod, only to receive a "Someone (forgot game) doesn't reward a task half done" or something like that message. I petitioned a GM to figure out what I did wrong, and of course, he was no help. So I think that if you get the Stone enchanted at Highkeep, you WON'T get the rod.

    Also, I happened to have an extra stone from the Shadowe men, so I headed out to Rathe Mountains to get that one enchanted, and it turns out that giving Cynthia 5pp instead of 50gp doesn't work, so I lost my second stone. At this point I was pretty pissed and the fact that I had just gotten my incandescent mask and gloves didn't really calm me down =).

    Anyways, I'd appreciate it if someone that did the quest posted the steps he followed to do the quest. You'd think a level 34 could solo those guys in Guk for the rod, but when a bunch aggro on you, you're stupid pet isn't any help. I died 2 times getting that lousy rod even though he dropped it on the second attempt and I don't feel like paying someone to help me get it again.

    You have to take the shining stone to Cynthia in Rathe Mountains, give it to her plus (either) 50gp or 5pp, both WILL work cause I do it all the time and she will give you back the stone now called a glamour stone. Then go to highkeep and give the stone plus (either) 50gp or 5pp and Tarn will give you back the glowing glamour stone. Take the stone and the golden rod to Sultin in Temple of Sol and he will give the Rod of Insid. I know these steps work well cause I do them often with no problems.

    # Aug 02 2001 at 1:09 PM Rating: Default
    What you did wrong my friend is. He says somethin like i need a golden rod and a shiny stone enchanted to the fulliest and he tells you to take it to cythina in rath moutains. then once you give her the stone and 50gp she tells you go to tarn in hhk. then he tells you return the stone and golden rod to sultin for your rod of glamour
    Do I just give the stone and 50gp?
    # Jul 17 2001 at 10:38 PM Rating: Decent
    When I saw Cynthia I hail her all she said was Hello, my name is Cynthia do I just give her the stone and 50gp? I'm afraid that I gave her the stuff and nothing will happen or should Cynthia should say something about enchanting your stone?
    RE: Do I just give the stone and 50gp?
    # Jul 18 2001 at 5:30 AM Rating: Default
    Yes, just give her the stone and 50gp and she will give you back the stone enchanted. I think it is called a glamour stone afterwards. Then the same thing with Tarn in Highkeep and it becomes a glowing glamour stone. Then that's it for the stone. I'm still trying to get the golden rod in Upper Guk now. Happy hunting.

    The NPC in the Temple doesnt say anything about Tarn in HHK? The Rod droped after about 7 kills of the priest and the stone also on the third kill, I am to finish the quest later though, bit worried about Tarn now though!!!
