    Find Drill Master Dal in Fortress Talishan (/loc = -245, -125, +31.75).

    You say, 'Hail, Drill Master Dal'

    Drill Master Dal says 'Yes, yes!! What do I have here?!! Another [new recruit]? If so, then speak up! If not, then leave and do not waste my time nor risk your life. I also seek a [legion soldier] if you be one.'

    You say, 'I am a Legion soldier.'

    Drill Master Dal says 'Good news to my ears!! I seek to prove to the War Baron that the infamous forsaken band of thieves who call themselves Marrtail's Marauders are operating within earshot of our city. You must bring me proof that you encountered no fewer than four of these thieves. Do so and I shall offer you an armor item unavailable to most.'

    You say, 'I am a new recruit.'

    Drill Master Dal says 'Yes. You have the look of the Partisan. I trust you have begun your blacksmith training. If not, then do so. Also, you should read all the books available to you in Fortress Talishan. We are not dimwitted broodlings here. You shall need the knowledge soon. That, or a coffin. Ha!! Here is your task, are you [ready for your task]?'

    You say, 'I am ready for my task.'

    Drill Master Dal says 'Yes, yes!! It does not matter. You must be ready. I will hand you the Partisan pack. Into it you shall combine one giant blood sac of the giant leech; scout beads from a goblin scout; one sabertooth kitten canine and finally, three bone shards from decaying skeletons. Hopefully, you will survive your attempt to obtain these items. Return the full Partisan pack and you shall be rewarded with a curscale shield.'

    You receive a Partisan Pack. You need Goblin Scout Beads, a Sabertooth Kitten Canine, A Giant Blood Sac, and 3 x Bone Chips. Combine them in the pack to craft a Full Partisan Pack. Give this back to Dal for your reward, a Curscale Buckler.

    Drill Master Dal says 'Fantastic work, Partisan _____. Here is your reward. You may continue to perform this task as the baron has found it aids in our defense. I shall always pay for a good day's work. Just let me know if you are still [ready for the task]. As for the curskin shield, you may only have one. Perhaps soon you will prove yourself a formidable fighter and you can earn a militia pike from Drill Master Vygan.'

    Submitted a bug report, but who knows if/when they'll bother fixing the thing. Or who knows, maybe you really are supposed to kill Bertoxxulous for the container now. If so, one hopes the stats on the shield would be improved a little. (Joking, just joking.)

    This quest is actually broken right now - or at least, newbie quests don't normally involve requesting that you kill gods... The present text you get in place of the old text plus bag is from the middle of some quest involving killing the god Bertoxxulous.
    Reward not worth it

    I really don't think this is worth the effort. I killed two decaying skeletons that carried Iksar Targ Shields (AC 7 weight 7.5) and carried one of them around for a while and sold the other to a merchant for around 1.5 PP. For 4-5 PP you can sometimes find a Finely Crafted Targ Shield, which is what I have now that has an additional 2 AC over the Iksar Targ Shield with the same weight.

    If this is such an easy quest for such a lousy shield, wouldnt u just do the quest if you had time and make some exp, money, and faction? Of course, if you do want the shield and dont have time or whatever, get that easy money from 8sp scorp pincirs sell em and buy this shield or something close.

    I haven't done this quest, and don't know if I will, but really, if you're pretty much confined to one city, the more good faction you have there, the better in my book.
    U think this is bad...

    It might be a sorry shield.. But it's a quest.. and for newbies it's a bit of exp and for everyone else it's faction.. Didn't I hear somewhere that the better faction u have with somethin the better CHA u have with them.. more money... Sell the shield and stop complainin..
    A shield for a monk
    # Aug 18 2001 at 10:53 PM Rating: Default
    "This is the only shield a monk can use?"

    Explain to me why the only class BORN with dual wield would care about being given a 4ac shield when for their entire career they're going to use 2-hand blunt, or more likely double their attack power with dual 1hb or fists.

    Oh, I'm not a newb and you didn't offend me but before you tell me how "horribl" (sic) this "crapy" (sic) shield is, why not tell me how many other shields a MONK can use and where I can get one at level 5?

    I dunno...the tangible reward is kinda lame, but the items that are required for it are relatively commone and easy to get. I am sure that in addition to the rather lame-o shield, you will also get a faction bump, some small amount of cash, and some exp (pro'ly a good amount at this low level). Remember, its never too early to try to build up faction in your home city.
    Back Pack
    # Jan 02 2001 at 1:49 AM Rating: Default
    The back Pack is good just make sure you don't hit combine when your non-quest valueables are in the bag. THey will be lost for good.

    Just a follow up, now when you try and combine something that isn't a recipie, you will get a message that says "You cannot combine these items in this container" or something like it. I just added this comment for those who are new to the game and are reading it and for general information now. =)

    Check the merchants in Cabilis first. I picked up this identical shield for my shaman for *drum roll* 3gp and some change.
    #Anonymous, Posted: Oct 12 2000 at 2:57 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I think I can speak for everyone on this topic. Please people when you know that someone has been camping for a long time, don't pester them about when they are going to leave. Don't sit down next to them to "wait" until they are done. You might be waiting a long time and then the time it takes for you to complete your camp on top of that. The NPC will always respawn and will always be there. Just ask them kindly if they will send you a tell when they are done and 9 times out of 10 they will. These players are tired from camping that long of a period and quite understandably a little grouchy and become extremely nervous at the thought of someone possibly stealing their kill. So, be courteous.
