|Quest Started By:||Description:|
NOTE: A patch on March 25, 2015, added a work-around to obtain items from Cazic Thule, Dread, Fright, and Terror:
In the Plane of Fear, a harbinger of Fear can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Cazic-Thule or the golems. These pieces cannot be multi-quested or traded. In addition, a harbinger of Fear can advance the Whistling Fists quest in the same way as Cazic-Thule.

The quest starts in Nektulos Forest where you must find Venenzi Oberzendi. She is at location -1140, -260 post-post-revamp.
You say, 'Hail, Venenzi Oberzendi'
Venenzi Oberzendi says 'What is it you want! Can't you see I am gathering reagents for my [master]? If I don't get them for him quickly he might punish me.'
You say, 'Who is your master?'
Venenzi Oberzendi says 'You do not know of my teacher? The great Kazen Fe'cae! I am one of his illustrious apprentices! If you fancy yourself a necromancer, travel to Lake Rathetear and tell Kazen you wish to study the dark arts.'
You say, 'What reagents?'
Venenzi Oberzendi says 'My master is working on some great project. He's always busy studying an old text he found and murmuring something about following in the footsteps of Miragul.'
Her Master, Kazen Facae, is at location +340, -1600 in Lake Rathetear.
You say, 'Hail, Kazen Fecae'
Kazen Fecae 's eyes seem to glow as he turns to you and says, 'Leave me be if you have no reason to be here, mortal!'
You say, 'I wish to study the dark arts.'
Kazen Fecae looks you up and down, his eyes glowing with a soft red light. After a moment he begins to speak though his lips do not move. 'You wish to study under me? Perhaps, if you prove yourself to follow the twisted path. If you prove to be as coldhearted as I then I will let you become my servant.'
You say, 'How can I prove myself?'
Kazen Fecae says 'The wandering 'knight' Sir Edwin Motte recently slew one of my lesser servants. This foolish knave travels from town to town pretending to be 'good.' Separate his head from his body and return it to me so I may work my magics upon it. This fool will become another plaything for me, even in death.'
Sir Edwin Motte is a 33rd level Paladin. He is found in four places throughout Norrath. The easiest place to find him is at the Docks in East Freeport. He spawns fairly frequently in Seafarers Roost. Once he has spawned, kill him and loot his head. Bring the head back to Kazen for the Symbol of the Apprentice.
Kazen Fecae says 'Excellent!' You watch Kazen hold the head by the hair and begin to cast a spell. A flash of darkness centers around the head and the eyes of the dead knight open, a terrible scream emanating from its lips. 'This poor fool here - I think I will keep him in my bag from now on. You have done well, my new apprentice. Take this symbol and know that you can do other tasks to advance within my apprentice ranks.'
You say, 'How can I advance?'
Kazen Fecae says 'I share great secrets with my more powerful servants who show me they are willing to serve without question. Tell my servant the name of any symbol he gives you and he will instruct you. If I give you a symbol, speak its name to me so I may instruct you.'
You say, 'What about a symbol of the apprentice?'
Kazen Fecae says 'You have a long way to go before I teach you the true secrets of life and death. Visit Venenzi Oberendi in the Nektulos forest and show her the symbol. She is collecting reagents for one of my experiments and is taking far too long. I do not wish her dead, yet. I simply need the reagents soon. Retrieve the reagents and give them to my assistant Emkel Kabae. I do not wish to handle them myself.'
Take the symbol to Venenzi and she will give you the Twisted Symbol of the Apprentice.
Venenzi Oberzendi says 'I see you serve my master as well now. I assume you are here to take the reagents from me which I have gathered for him? I don't know if I like the idea of you gaining the credit for my hard work here. I might consider giving you these reagents, if only you do a small [task] for me.'
You say, 'What task?'
Venenzi Oberzendi looks down at her robes and back at you. 'There is a certain dark elf magician who has decided to wear the same fashion as I have on several occasions. I do not wish to attend another social gathering in Neriak and look exactly the same as another woman. Slay her and bring me her robe and I will give you my hard earned reagents.'
The robe she speaks of is a Flowing Black Robe. This is dropped in Najena by - you guessed it - Najena. It would surely be quicker to visit The Bazaar and buy one off a player. Regardless of how you obtain it, head back to Venenzi and hand it over.
Venenzi Oberzendi says 'Thank you. I did not think you would track down Najena and slay her. I think that I am going to return to my old life in Neriak. I am sick of the way Kazen has been treating me. He never seems to teach me anything worthwhile. Don't forget to give his lapdog that symbol with the reagents. I'm sure he will give you a new one.'
You will receive a Rolling Stone Moss. Now you will need to go back to Lake Rathetear and find Emkel, Fazen's Apprentice. He is by the stone skeleton tower.
You say, 'Hail, Emkel Kabae'
Emkel Kabae says 'I am Emkel Kabae, first apprentice to Kazen. If you have a symbol, tell me its name.'
Give him the Twisted Symbol of the Apprentice and the moss for the Symbol of the Serpent.
Emkel Kabae says 'Very good, you have done as the master asked yet again, take this as a reward.' Emkel reaches into his robes and pulls out a small symbol. He holds it out and the tiny symbol floats to your hand.
You say, 'What is the symbol of the serpent?'
Emkel Kabae says 'There are more reagents to be gathered. The time draws near for our master's ascension. Travel to the lands of Kunark and seek out Ssessthrass. He is a very wise Iksar herbalist helping me in my endeavor to please Master Kazen. Be careful not to insult his speech, or you may end up dead before you serve your purpose to the master. Be sure to show him the symbol as proof or he may consider you dinner.'
You will need to take this Symbol to Ssessthrass, a named Iksar in the Swamp of No Hope. He is at location +3800, +1600, which is in a house in the pass to go to Field of Bone. He will give you Scaled Symbol of the Serpent.
You say, 'Hail, Ssessthrass'
Ssessthrass says 'I do not wisssh to be bothered.'
Give him the Symbol of the Serpent.
Ssessthrass says 'Sssso, Emkel ssssent you to retrieve the manisi herb? I do not have the herb. The ssssarnak guard the herb. Apparently it is ssssacred to them. Only memberssss of their royal family are allowed to partake of it. They live deep in Chardok. They are hoarding what little of the precious herb there is. If you have an army, perhapssss you can bring me the herb and I can prepare it for Emkel. Bring back this ssssymbol as well.'
Next, head to Chardok and find the Herbalist. His spawn point is at the green house near the bank (first right after you cross the bridge). He doesn't always drop the Manisi Herb, which is what you need from him so you might have to try this more than once. Return to Ssessthrass and give him the Manisi Herb and the Scaled Symbol of the Serpent.
Ssessthrass looks at you and bows. 'You are truly a fearsome sssshadow weaver! Or you have powerful alliessss,' he adds a moment later. Ssessthrass pulls the manisi herb apart and hands a piece to you. 'Emkel will be most pleased with us both!'
You gain experience!!
You receive a Refined Manisi Herb. Head back to Emkel and give him the Refined Manisi Herb.
Emkel Kabae says 'You are truly worthy of studying with our master. Bear this new symbol and contemplate what you wish from life before you let go of it. Ask the master about the symbol of testing and he will explain all. I too was tested by him.' Emkel pulls up his sleeve to show a grievous scar from his wrist to his shoulder.'
You gain experience!!
You receive a Symbol of Testing.
You say, 'Tell me about the symbol of testing'
Emkel Kabae says 'You must ask the master about the symbol of testing. Do not hand the symbol to him for he may interpret that as a breach of conduct.'
Return to Kazen and tell him about the symbol:
You say, 'I have a symbol of testing'
Kazen Fecae says 'Show me that you can overcome larger obstacles and manipulate servants. Gather a force for of mercenaries if you like, or so-called friends, if you desire, and prepare for battle, my promising young student. Return to me with the symbol of testing when you are prepared for battle with my creations. Have no fear, I will not slay you myself. If you do live, tell me the name of the symbol you receive.'
Hand him the Symbol of Testing.
Kazen Fecae says 'As you hand Kazen the symbol, you hear him speak directly into your mind. 'Good luck, my student!' Kazen finishes an incantation and suddenly hands begin to reach up from the ground, as if they were pulling themselves from the grave all around you. A piercing scream fills the air as the creatures advance upon you!'
a bone golem says 'Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrraaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!'
A bone golem spawns to the east of Emkel on a little inlet. Upon its death, a failed apprentice spawns and attacks. Upon its death, a tortured soul spawns and attacks as well. You can kill these with two groups of 50+. With a few clerics and tanks, they shouldn't cause trouble. They hit for ~120 and are not overly difficult.
Loot a Symbol of Insanity from a tortured soul.
Upon asking Kazen about the symbol:
You say, 'What do I do with the symbol of insanity?'
Kazen Fecae says 'It is time for you to meet my partner, so to speak. Drendico Metalbones is his name and I assure you he is quite mad. His mind has been rended by fright, dread, and terror in his trips to the planes and his heart is full of hatred now. He has a tome which I wish you to use. Show him your symbol slowly and listen to his rantings well, they hide great knowledge.''
Take the symbol to Drendico Metalbones in Timorous Deep (he is located near the dock that takes you to the Overthere). If you turn right from the docks and climb onto a stoney hill, you will see this little gnome wandering around +6485, +3829.
You say, 'Hail, Drendico Metalbones'
Drendico Metalbones says 'The hills ears keep spinning the wonders of wells. Twisting twisting fly in water scar hot horses. Teach me! Bring floating water islands of doom!'
Give him the symbol.
Drendico Metalbones says 'Seek, search, turn, twist! Kazen hopes to death master truly! Read out, read in between! Talk to the pretty clouds.' Drendico turns his back to you and throws a book over his shoulder. 'Bring back book! Bring back reagents three!!' He shouts as he mumbles some more gibberish.'
You receive his journal. It reads (backwards):
must find for master kazenYou'll need to pick up a Cloak of Spiroc Feathers, the Eye of Innoruuk, and the Slime Blood of Cazic Thule.
The Eye of Innoruuk drops from mini-bosses in the Plane of Hate (also from Innoruuk himself).
The (Slime) Blood of Cazic Thule is dropped off of Terror and Cazic Thule himself. Needless to say you'll want to bring a few friends for this fight.
To get the Cloak of Spiroc Feathers, complete the linked "Necromancer Test of Power" quest in the Plane of Sky.
Take the cloak, eye, blood, and the journal to Drendico.
Drendico Metalbones turns to you in amazement. 'You actually did it! These are the correct components! Kazen will be most pleased. I searched the planes for almost a year and could not find all the correct components.' Drendico fiddles with the components, puts them into a box and hands it to you. 'You must have access to an army, _____. Return the components to Kazen quickly.'
You receive a Prepared Reagents Box. Take this to Kazen:
Kazen Fecae stares through you at the horizon, pausing as he reaches into his robes. Kazen pulls out a scythe with a shimmering black blade that seems too large to have been hidden there. As quickly and gracefully as it was displayed to you, it is returned to the void inside Kazen's robes. 'It is a creation of Miragul which was looted from his lair under the ice. Take this tome, it will be your final task for me as an apprentice.'
You receive a Tome of Instruction.
Now, head to the Plane of Sky and speak with the Thunder Spirit Princess on the port-up isle.
You say, 'Hail, a thunder spirit princess'
a thunder spirit princess says 'Greetings, travelers, welcome to the Plane of Sky! We are thunder spirits - this first island is our home. You are welcome to stay here as long as you like. If you wish to go to other islands you may purchase keys from the Key Master.'
You say, 'Tell me about Gkzzallk'
a thunder spirit princess says 'Gkzzallk lives far above here. We often take him tea because he's so nice to us fairies! He likes to chat with the others who live here and can often be found in the temple up above. If you give me a bit of money, I can go make sure he is home.'
Give her 10 gold pieces or 1 plat.
a thunder spirit princess says 'Thank you, _____. I will tell him to expect visitors.'
Click up to the third isle where you'll find Gkzzallk.
You say, 'Hail, Gkzzallk'
Gkzzallk says 'Hello Stranger, would you care for some tea?'
Hand him the tome:
Gkzzallk screams as he touches the book. His body shimmers as he shrinks smaller and smaller until it's no larger than an insect. The book shimmers, shifting into the shape of a small, black box. Gkzzallk holds on to the opening of the box as he is sucked backward into it. The tiny screams are finally silenced as the box top closes.
You receive "Gkzzallk in a Box". Take this item to Kazen.
Kazen Fecae grins widely and his eyes flare a deep red. The scythe he promised you flies through the air and into your hand. 'Enjoy your toy, I have no more need of you as a servant.'
You receive the Scythe of the Shadowed Soul.

NOTE: Other online sources claim that everything up to the Symbol of Testing can be skipped by simply killing Kazen to spawn the "a bone golem". In the limited testing I did, killing Kazen did not spawn anything so I believe this is not an option on live/tlp servers.
Probably a little out of date now, with changes in game, but hopefully still somewhat useful.
Probably a little out of date now, with changes in game, but hopefully still somewhat useful.
"In era" guides are going to become more sought after I think the more years go by and deeper we get into progression servers. Especially if the live game does the right thing and keeps redeveloping content.
My suggestion is keep a "dated" version of your guides up, and possibly a "current or edited to current" version as well.
Level 70 Enchanter (retired)
Set my bound point at Kazen in Lake Rathetear (you go back and forth here a bunch of times). If not wanting to bind here, it's actually a faster run to Kazen from the Arena stone in PoK rather than all the way through Rathe mountains via the Gukta stone.
Used my Worker Sledgemallet to get me out of all the deep in camps (i.e., Chardok, Plane of Sky, etc.) when the next stage wasn't to vist Kazen or his apprentice. This is also handy since you have to go to Timourous deep a couple of times and the gnome is right near where the OT translocator ports you too. Thanks to the charm undead line no necromancer above level 60s has an excuse for not having the OT hammer.
Origin and return home made up for being bound in such an out of the way spot... but I wasn't dragging this out so it was only a few days of playing in game to get this all done. *I'll admit to getting lucky on price and availability on a few of the baz tradable items that would have required me to get some assistance, and playing on FV so the black silk cape was a steal at 10k (all my plat lol... and not tradable on regular servers) --I decided to buy it since it was the last piece I needed and facing the deathtouches was going to be a bottleneck issue.
I bought 9 Cloudy stone of Veeshan and Fulligan Soulstones to use with the npc in tranquility (wasn't guilded at the time) and ended up with several left over.
I waited at the tavern in East Freeport for Sir Edwin Motte, that wasn't too many cycles. The rest of the alla walk-thru was very helpful.

Compared to the old post I was following, it looks like this had been slightly modified from pre-2004 state.
I'm on Tunare (E'ci).
paladin epic. The Azarack pathing on island 2 is now so screwed up that they no longer are on their
own island at all. Those who aren't keyed to island 3 are stuck, or else have to be necro-CoH'd up. It's the
sad state of decay that SoE has allowed to happen to the older zones, I'm afraid :(
though I've switched my email to ymail.
Here are the relevant links:
Drexxell's general games page: http://mysite.verizon.net/drexxell/
EQ page: http://mysite.verizon.net/drexxell/eq
Plane of Sky: http://mysite.verizon.net/drexxell/eq/planeofsky.html
Necro Epic: http://mysite.verizon.net/drexxell/eq/necroepic.html
Necro 1.5: http://mysite.verizon.net/drexxell/eq/necro1point5.html
New email: email@example.com
I am still working out a few dead links, but should be mostly up and running now.
Gkzzallk says " Hello Stranger, would you care for some tea".
Hand book to Gkzzallk
Gkzzallk screams as he touches the book. His body shimmers as he shrinks smaller and smaller untill it's no larger than an insect. The book shimmers, shifting into the shape of a small, black box. Gkzzallk holds on to the opening of the box as he is sucked backward into it. The tiny screams are finally silenced as the box top closes.
Thus ya have 1 Gkzzallk in a box :)
