Full Walkthrough

Speak to Telin Darkforest in the Burning Woods. He is located near the Skyfire zone. If your faction isn't high enough with him (halflings don't start with enough faction), you'll need to improve it. An easy way to raise faction is by completing the Muffin for Pandos quest (a bunch of times).

You say, 'Hail, Telin Darkforest'

Telin Darkforest looks at you serenely. 'Hello, wanderer.'

You say, 'What are you doing in this forest?'

Telin Darkforest says 'Mighty this place must have been, once. Now scarred by hatred and suffering. I have been sent here seeking answers to problems not yet understood.

You say, 'What answers?'

Telin Darkforest considers you for a few moments before speaking. 'A great evil walks across the land. The hand of some demon we don't yet know is twisting and polluting forests.'

You say, 'What evil?'

Telin Darkforest says 'If I knew that, I wouldn't be here looking for answers. I would be elsewhere, looking for solutions. For now, I suspect much but know little.

You say, 'What do you suspect?'

Telin Darkforest looks at you and sighs. 'The lands are changing. Beasts, large and small, have turned upon those who watched over them. Druids and rangers, worshippers of both Karana and Tunare, have reported a feeling of hatred throughout their once peaceful lands.'

You say, 'Perhaps it is Innoruuk'

Telin Darkforest raises his eyebrow slightly and a subtle look of surprise creeps across his face. 'Innoruuk? Perhaps. Aye. It must be. Perhaps I knew and didn't want to consider the possibility. It must be this though, and some action will have to be taken.'

You say, 'What action should I take?'

Telin Darkforest looks at you consideringly and then scribbles something quickly on a small, worn paper. 'You seem powerful enough. Perhaps you can help those who seek to protect nature's peace. Take this note. Deliver it only into the hands of Faelin Bloodbriar. Where you will find her, I cannot say. She is a friend of mine and a wanderer. She has been seen from one end of the lands to the other. Seek her out, and quickly.'

Telin Darkforest gives you a "Worn Note" which you need to take to Faelin Bloodbriar in Greater Faydark.

Faelin roams around Greater Faydark and has an Orc Pawn as her PH. Their spawn point is at loc +1500, +500.

Faelin Bloodbriar reads the note carefully and growls to herself. 'Bad news, eh? Take this ring. There is one elf, dark elf even, who we must go to in order to gather insight into Innoruuk's plans. Giz X'Tin, he goes by most commonly. Kithacor seems to be his favorite haunt and most likely you will find him there. Don't ask how I know him. Just take the ring as my sign to him and he will speak to you. We don't need to speak again, so don't seek me out, just go to Telin. I must leave to investigate these events.'

Faelin Bloodbriar gives you "Faelins Ring" to take to take to Giz X'Tin, who is located in Kithicor Forest.

Giz X'Tin flips you a coin after he recognizes the ring. 'It seems we have a mutual 'acquaintance.' The coin repays an old debt. You don't have to worry about what that is. Luckily, Lord Innoruuk has informed me of your coming and your desires. Fortunately, I have all the answers you require right here at the end of my friend's blade. I think I'll be paying my old 'friend' a visit.'

Teir`Dal Reaver says 'Lord Innoruuk, I have failed you. Forgive me and spare me from service to your undead minions in the world!

Giz X'Tin gives you a "Dark Metal Coin."

A Teir`Dal Reaver will spawn when you get the Dark Metal Coin however you do not need to kill it.

Head back to the Burning Woods and give the coin to Telin.

Telin Darkforest scratches the coin as he looks at it. 'Faelin sent you to Giz? Surprising. This coin speaks to the outcome of your talk. He would hardly give this bit of metal to a stranger, but that's a story for a different time. So, you say Giz did confirm Innoruuk's involvement, and something about undead minions? Here, take this coin back. Find Arch Druid Althele in the Karanas and show her that. Tell her what we have discussed. She will look kindly on an ally in this matter.'

Telin Darkforest gives you a "Worn Dark Metal Coin" to take to Althele in East Karana.

You say, 'Hail, Althele'

Althele says 'Hello, friend. Beautiful is what I would call such a day normally, but lately? I sense that something is [out of balance].'

You say, 'Out of balance?'

Althele says 'I sense something foreboding, young one, but you should think nothing of it. The sons and daughters of nature will be able to deal with this problem.'

Give the coin to Althele.

Althele looks at the coin and nods gravely at you as she slips it into a fold of her clothing. 'I see. The story of this coin speaks much to me as do the words you have given me. Telin sent word that you would arrive. The tidings you bring are ill indeed. Here, take this amulet and find Sionae. She is nearby. We will speak more on this matter when all are present.'

Althele gives you a "Braided Grass Amulet" to take to Sionae.

You say, 'Hail, Tholris'

Tholris stares in contemplation at the landscape.

Althele says 'Tholris does not speak much. He is here to assist me in my duties. He is my hands, as Fang is my eyes.

Fang barks in response to Althele's words.

You say, 'Why do you need him as your hands and Fang as your eyes?'

Althele says 'Yes. I cannot see any longer, my sight long since lost in the march of years. By the blessings of Tunare and Karana, though, I still make myself useful.

Sionae spawns after you get the Braided Grass Amulet.

Give the amulet to Sionae.

Sionae says 'I see that the time has come. Take the amulet and give it to the third of our kin, Nuien. I will meet you at the gathering.

Sionae gives you a "Frayed Braided Grass Amulet" to take to Nuien.

Give the amulet to Nuien.

Nuien says 'So be it. Do as you have done before and find the next. Teloa is the last.

Nuien gives the "Frayed Braided Grass Amulet" back to you, and Teloa spawns near the waterfall.

Give the amulet to Teloa.

Teloa begins walking toward the gathering spot. 'Follow me to the gathering now.'

Follow Teloa back to where Althele is, which is where the druids are gathering. You will not have the amulet at this point as she does not return it to you.

Althele says 'Great mother of life and father of sky, growth and spirit, Tunare and Karana. Innoruuk once again schemes and we have failed in our duties to protect our land. We give our powers in sacrifice for your help. Heed our call and send us your wisdom.
Althele snaps her head towards you. 'Innoruuk's brood is upon us. Go, find the spawn of hatred before they reach this point and destroy them!'

Dark Elf Corruptor and two Dark Elf Reavers spawn. You need only the Corruptor and loot the Fleshbound Tome.

Dark Elf Corruptor shouts 'We come for you, fools. Your reign of weakness over the powers of the land comes to an end now!

It is not necessary to kill the two Reavers but if you don't, they'll wander to the druids and kill them. Allowing this to happen will waste your time, as you need to hand the "Fleshbound Tome" you looted off the Corruptor into Althele.

Althele hands the book to Tholris who reads through it with lines of concern etched on his face, then whispers into her ear. 'Dire news, indeed. This cannot be allowed. I must keep this book but you must not allow Innoruuk, to seed the land with his hatred and filth. You have only just begun your quest. The path you are guided upon will be difficult, if not impossible, but someone must finish it. Please, take this, read of it, follow its instructions. Tunare bless your path and Karana watch over you.'

Althele gives you the "Earth Stained Note" and then despawns. She will respawn 35 minutes later.

'We cannot speak again. Our circle is now known and must seek sanctuary. In case this note were to fall into others' hands. I cannot tell you plainly the next steps of your task. All I can say is to seek she who walks the path of the mother, she who walks the lands in service to her kin. Give her this note and she will know.'

Head to Misty Thicket and find Ella Foodcrafter. She wanders the path near Rivervale and won't be hard to track down.

You say, 'Hail, Ella Foodcrafter'

Ella Foodcrafter says 'Hi, hi. I've got a lot to do, many mouths to feed, some filthy goblins to smack. If you don't need me for something, please let me go back to my work. Karana watch over you.'

Give the Earth Stained Note to her.

Ella Foodcrafter says 'Hmmm. I've been waiting for someone to bring me this. I'm sorry such a young one as you has taken up this task. Maybe the sky god blesses ya though. Aye, ya have that look in your eye. Our task is to focus the blessings of the gods and cleanse the filth from the land. I have two tasks for ya.'

You say, 'What two tasks?'

Ella Foodcrafter says 'Well, ya ask before ya act. That's a good sign. What I need isn't easy to find. First, I need a mixture. Plain sounding enough but it's a special one. Cleanses the mind and focuses the earth's energies into a forest walker's mind. I don't know how to make it. I don't even know what it's called. I merely know it exists and we'll be needing it for our task. When ya do find how to make it ya can mix it in that bowl. Keep it when you're done, it's a good bowl.'

Ella Foodcrafter gives you a "Shiny Tin Bowl" which identifies as Ellas Reflective Tin Bowl to create the Hardened Mixture.

You say, 'What is the second task?'

Ella Foodcrafter grins. 'Good, ya didn't run off without finding out what else ya need to do. Second, I need a special type of bowl. An ancient type of bowl, which strengthened the food placed inside it, once made by the elves of old. Again, I cannot tell ya how it is made for the making was lost to the ages. Seek this knowledge and these items out in the lands. Come to me when ya have found both.'

Now, you will need to forage:

Chilled Tundra Root in Everfrost.
Ripened Heartfruit in Greater Faydark.
Speckled Molded Mushroom in Innothule Swamp.
Sweetened Mudroot in Misty Thicket.

Combine these four items in the Shiny Tin Bowl to get a "Hardened Mixture." Don't destroy the tin bowl, as you'll need it later in the quest.

Seek out Alrik Farsight who roams near the chessboard in Timorous Deep. He is on Keepers of the Art faction. You will need to be at least amiable to him in order for him to speak to you. It may be raised by doing a bat wing turn in quest described here.

You say, 'I seek an ancient type of bowl made by the elves of old.'

Alrik Farsight rummages through his tattered bag and throws aside a towel. 'Too many towels. Oh well, someone told me they were good to have once. Here it is, a bowl pattern. Interesting bowl. Looks almost like a magical bowl but I'm no potter. You need it, you say? Well, it is interesting. Part of my research here is for the wizard guild in Felwithe. I'm sure they'd put a high price on this one, the enchanters guild being so interested in trading for magical paraphernalia and all. Of course if you helped me out on a chore I have, I'd be happy to give it to you. I need to deliver an artifact to the guild and I'd much rather stay here exploring. If you wish, you can take the artifact and return with the receipt and I will give you the pattern.'

You say, 'I will take the artifact.'

Alrik Farsight says 'Hah! Okay then. Here take this to Farios Elianos in Felwithe. He will give you the Receipt.

Alrik Farsight gives you "Crushed Pot" to give to Farios Elianos in Southern Felwithe.

Farios Elianos says, 'Why in the nine hells would I need a crushed pot? Perhaps I could use it to not hold water! Why did you even bother me with this? Are you mentally deficient? Apparently. Oh, well, you're just a servant boy. Well, then, we'll make you useful, if just a little. Take this shopping list and go get my groceries. Take it to Nora in the tavern. She'll know what I need.'

Farios Elianos gives you a "Grocery List" to give to Merchant Nora.

Merchant Nora says 'You hardly look like the type of errand runner Farios usually sends out to fetch his groceries but here they are. I hope he chokes on them. Oh, and tell him he still owes me five gold for his last order!

Merchant Nora gives you a "Bag of Provisions" to take to Farios Elianos.

Take the bag of Provisions back to Farios Elianos and give it to him.

Farios Elianos says 'Ah, good. Here's a few copper and a receipt for services rendered. Now be off, I'm sure citizens across the land are in dire need of broken pots at right this moment.

Farios Elianos gives you a "Receipt" to take to Alrik Farsight.

Go back to Alrik Farsight and give him the Receipt.

Alrik Farsight grins happily. 'Excellent! Was he pleased with the artifact? Oh, that's not even worth answering. I'm sure he was. He's always happy with the things I send him. That's why he honored me with this position of esteem, searching for useful and powerful items in this newly discovered land.'

You receive an "Ancient Pattern."

Go to Firiona Vie in Kunark and forage a "Rose of Firiona."

Now head to Merdan Fleetfoot in Surefall Glade:

You say, 'Hail, Merdan Fleetfoot'

Merdan Fleetfoot says 'Yes Niera! Oh. Erm. Hi. I mean, uh. How are you?'

You say, 'Who is Niera?'

Merdan Fleetfoot blushes. 'She is, uh.. I don't know. I haven't been able to speak with her. She has many suitors, and I'm just another poor ranger. I spend my days here pretending to fish, to carve bows, but really I'm just waiting to catch a glimpse of her. I thought about adventuring into the world to find some kind of token to give her, to show her how I feel, but I cant tear myself away from here.'

Give Merdan Fleetfoot a Rose of Firiona.

Merdan Fleetfoot blinks and looks at the flower. 'This is perfect. Thank you! I'm going to go over to her now. Erm, well, maybe I'll wait a week to let the uh.. beauty of the flower.. uhm.. blossom. Yes, that sounds good. Here, you take this painting. I don't need it now. I made it myself, she wouldn't like it anyways.'

Merdan Fleetfoot gives you a "Wood Painting" to give to a Human Skeleton in Frontier Mountains.

a human skeleton begins to crack and disintegrate, its body collapsing into a pile of dust that scatters into the winds. On the ground you notice a locket on a fine, thin chain which you pick up ("Silver Chained Locket").

Head back to Surefall and give the locket to Niera Farbreeze and she will give you "Platinum Speckled Powder."

Niera Farbreeze says 'This, this is my mother's amulet. I cannot believe it. Please, take this powder you say you need. Perhaps it does have powers, I don't know, I don't care. Thank you, my eternal thanks for this.

Seek out Kinlo Strongarm in Kaladim.

You say, 'What mud?'

Kinlo Strongarm says 'Eh? Oh, the clay. Arrr. Lots o that mud round 'ere. Mostly, a good dwarf not be needin somethin so soft 'n squishy but the womenfolk, you know, the elves come lookin fer it. If ye be one o' those pansy elves wantin some mud fer workin into fairy statues, flashy trinkets, 'n pig sticker arrers then I can get it for ye. Course I'd be lowerin meself, a good dwarf, ta be diggin that kinda mush outta the ground, but I can do it fer ya.

You say, 'Do it for me.'

Kinlo Strongarm says 'Arrr. Shaddap. I ain't doin it til ya bring me something. A fee, I guess yed call it, fer lowerin meself ta elf woman work. Go get me a good strong axe and I'll do it fer ye. Mebbe somethin with a good tinted polish on it. I got plenty o' axes but no tinted ones. Har har! Colored axe. Something to go with the color left on the blade after I be crackin open a gobbo head.

He wants a Jade Reaver from the City of Mist.

Give Kinlo a Reaver, and he will give you Enchanted Clay.

Kinlo Strongarm says 'Arrrrr. Ooooo. Arrrrrr... Yah, now that's what I be callin a good lookin axe. I be crackin a few skulls with this one. Oh, here's yer block o' mud. Our priests o' Brell use the mud pit fer relievin themselves after really hard ale blessin ceremonies, so ya ain't got ta be enchantin it in holy water or anythin cause they already have. Har har!

Combine the Ancient Pattern, Enchanted Clay, and Platinum Speckled Powder in a Pottery Wheel to make a Runecrested Bowl, which identifies as "A meticulously decorated bowl." This requires no skill in pottery to do and any pottery wheel should work.

Head back to Misty Thicket and visit Ella Foodcrafter. Give her the Hardened Mixture and Runecrested Bowl.

Ella Foodcrafter smiles slowly as she works the mixture in the bowl and it starts to shine with power. 'This is... a piece of a lost magic item known as Nature's Gem. When restored to completeness I've heard its healing powers will be extraordinary. Take it now. I will take the bowl and hopefully do some good from my end. From here, you can go many ways but I can't guide your path step by step. The only advise I can give you is to look for ones such as yourself.'

Ella Foodcrafter gives you the "Softly Glowing Stone," which identifies as Left Half of Natures Balance.

Seek out Foloal Stormforest in Firiona Vie.

You say, 'Are you one such as myself?'

Foloal Stormforest stares at you and whispers. 'You must be the one that has been spoken of. Yes, yes I am one of the circle. There are many of us in the lands right now, all seeking answers to the ills that have befallen our homes.'

You say, 'What answers?'

Foloal Stormforest says 'I have heard whispers of new Iksar movements in the land. The name of Venril Sathir is on the scaled lips and sharp tongues of every cold blooded lizard in this place.'

You say, 'What about venril sathir?'

Foloal Stormforest says 'All I've heard are whispers of connections between the undead lizards and the dark god of hate. There's some kind of history behind the two. It might be that Venril is the main focus of Innoruuk's will in the land. Then again, maybe not, but this is the best we've gotten so far. If you think you can do it, then find him and remove him from the face of this earth. Bring me the half of the stone I know you have and whatever conduit of power you find on his rotting corpse.

Locate Venril Sathir's Remains in Karnor's Castle. VSR spawns about 24 hours after the real Venril Sathir is killed.

Venril Sathir's Remains says 'The living fire. I seek the fires of life. Bring them.

Use the spell Dance of the Fireflies to summon a Firefly Globe. Give Venril Sathirs remains the Firefly Globe, which causes the Spirit of Venril Sathir to spawn.

Venril Sathir's Remains grasps the glowing sphere of fireflies from your hands. Tendrils of mystical energy begin to flow forth from the swarm of glowing insects like tiny fingers. The glowing tendrils begin to reach into the ribcage of the rotting remains of Venril Sathir, coalescing into the form of an Iksar ghost.

You say, 'Hail, Spirit of Venril Sathir'

Spirit of Venril Sathir says 'So mortals, you seek to end the tainting of Tunare's children? So be it, I have no cares. My death has been caused by this foolishness and I want no more to do with it. Bring me a scroll with the knowledge of resurrection so that I may once again live. I will hand you that which you seek.

Give the Spirit of Venril Sathir the cleric version of the Spell: Resurrection scroll.

Spirit of Venril Sathir says 'I am alive! My thanks to you. And now I will aid you in your quest for preserving the forests of norrath. Your carcass will help nurture the soils of the wilderness.

Venril Sathir respawns. Kill Venril Sathir to get the "Pulsing Green Stone," which identifies as Pulsing with a sickly light. This version of Venril Sathir should be easier to kill as I have been told that he does not Lifetap. He will drop two Pulsing Green Stones and nothing else.

Head back to Firiona and hand Foloal Stormforest the Pulsing Green Stone and Softly Glowing Stone.

Foloal Stormforest blinks and carefully takes the stones from you, cautiously scratching the jagged green stone against the other. Its skin seems to shiver and flake at the contact and eventually begins to shine brightly. 'With the gem nature's balance is complete. Take the stone and walk your path. Blade or lightning caller, burning sword or the mother's walk.'

Foloal Stormforest gives you the "Warmly Glowing Stone," that identifies as Natures Balance Completed.

Head to the Burning Woods and give Telin Darkforest the Warmly Glowing Stone.

Telin Darkforest nods as he unbuckles his sword and hands it to you. 'The storm callers are working on containing and fighting against the corruption but they can not hold back the inevitable for long. It is up to us to strike against Innoruuk directly. If we were warriors or paladins we would have a fancy ceremony and plenty of feasting but we're just rangers, without time for pleasantries. The sword you hold in your hands is one of the oldest blades known, even to the eldest. To strike at the darkest heart of evil requires a weapon beyond this, or even ones you may carry at your side. The first task, the first preparation you must make is the smithing of that blade. Its edge sharpened, its balance made perfect. When you have finished, bring me this sword again.

Telin gives you an "Ancient Longsword," which identifies as a "Finely Crafted Longsword."

Head back to Kinlo Strongarm in Kaladim and ask him about the ancient.

You say, 'What ancient?'

Kinlo Strongarm says 'The ancient smiths, for what I think yer askin about, ain't been around fer a long time, laddy. Last anyone heard o' the ancients was 'fore my time even. There be more than a few tales about 'em.

You say, 'What few tales?'

Kinlo Strongarm says 'There be some who talk about how the ancient smiths went down to work fer the duke o' below, sayin he be needin some fine dwarven smiths fer makin some castle or some such. There be tales that the ancients were so good at smithin that the duke took 'em down and made 'em head smiths over his minions. There's even tales that some o the smiths' souls were trapped in their hammers, stuck there by some necromancer or somethin, as punishment or retribution.

You say, 'What hammers?'

Kinlo Strongarm says 'Aye. Some says their souls were bound into their hammers by an Erudite necromancer and enchanter. They say they used the power of the hammers ta profit by makin ships, boats, and houses better than any other merchants. Sad tale, if'n it be true.

You say, 'What Erudite necromancer?'

Kinlo Strongarm says 'I'm not knowin more about the story, lad. Everythin I know is already in what I said. Aye, Erudites. I suppose if yer wantin ta run after shortbeard tales ya can look over on that plague island they call Odus.

You say, 'What Erudite Enchanter?'

Kinlo Strongarm says 'I'm not knowing more about the story, lad. Everything I know is already in what I said. Aye, Erudites. I suppose if yer wantin ta run after shortbeard tales you can look over on that plagued island they call Odus.

Head to The Hole with a raid and make your way down toward Jaeil the Wretched. Jaeil is indifferent by default.

You say, 'Hail, Jaeil the Wretched'

Jaeil the Wretched whimpers pathetically as his reflection catches his eye. He turns and stares pitifully at the ceiling.

Jaeil the Wretched shields his eyes from his reflection in the water, occasionally gibbering as he scratches at a flapping, rotted patch of skin on his sunken face. In his arms he cradles something. He seems to emanate an aura of power.

Stand behind Jaeil the Wretched to make him indifferent to you, then give him the Shiny Tin Bowl so that he will see his reflection.

Jaeil the Wretched howls in anger, his body seeming to suck energy from the walls around him as he sees his reflection. He pulls a hammer from the bundle in his arms and swings fiercely at your head.

Jaeil the Insane spawns and attacks. Kill Jaeil the Insane and loot the "Soulbound Hammer," which identifies as Hammer of an ancient dwarf. Jaeil the Wretched used to remain there and could be chain triggered. Since the revamp of Old Paineel, he will poof once he receives the bowl.

Give the Soulbound Hammer to Kinlo Strongarm.

Kinlo Strongarm examines the hammer respectfully, admiring its craftsmanship. He strikes it against his anvil and winces as a howl fills the air. 'This is one of the ancients' hammers? I can almost, well, almost hear it callin ta me. It's strong, that's fer sure, lad. I don't know how ye got it, but aye, a dwarf could make a mighty blade with this. It's lookin like this thing still has its owner inside it though. I'm not knowin how, and not wantin to know, but fer yer own good ye better find some way ta get 'im out.'

Kinlo gives you back the "Soulbound Hammer," which identifies as Hammer of an ancient dwarf.

Off to Erudin Palace to find Mairee Silentone. Talk to her about an ancient hammer.

You say, 'What ancient hammer?'

Mairee Silentone says 'Yes, the ancient hammer. I heard something about that. Do you mind if I take a look at it?'

Give Mairee Silentone the "Soulbound Hammer," which identifies as Hammer of an ancient dwarf.

Mairee Silentone makes a few marks on the hammer, and all the while you can hear a muffled cursing coming from the hammer head. 'Yes, it is an ancient dwarf's hammer. Interesting artifact. I've marked it to keep it stable while you retrieve something for me. You need to travel to the Plane of Sky and find a swirling sphere of color. Bring it and the hammer back to me.'

Mairee Silentone gives you the "Dwarven Smiths Hammer," which identifies as Hammer of an ancient dwarf.

Head to Island Four of the Plane of Sky and kill an essence tamer which drops the Swirling Sphere of Color.

Give Mairee Silentone the Hammer and the Swirling Sphere of Color.

Mairee Silentone holds the sphere and makes intricate marks and patterns on it, eventually turning the entire crystal clear. She rolls it across the hammer, raising a ringing sound in the room. 'There. Now take the hammer back to Kinlo. He'll know what to do from here. Good luck to you .'

Mairee Silentone gives you the "Hammer of the Ancients," which identifies as Hammer of an ancient dwarf.

Back in Kaladim, hand Kinlo Strongarm the Hammer of the Ancients, which causes Usbak the Old to spawn.

Kinlo Strongarm looks at the hammer and nods once before slamming the head against his anvil, and shattering the head. In a cloud of dust, another dwarf appears from the cloud and tosses you a hunk of metal. Kinlo stares in awe.

Usbak the Old gives you "Small bit of Mithril Ore," which identifies as Small bit of Mithril Ore.

You say, 'Hail, Usbak the Old'

Usbak the Old says 'Took ya long enough! Ye'd think ya had an Orc head on them shoulders there. I'm owin' ya for yer help though. Else I'd have been on that darn hammer for ages. Ye said ya had an ancient blade or somethin ta be smithin. If so lemme see it.

Give Usbak the Old the Ancient Longsword and he gives you the "Refined Ancient Sword," which identifies as Sword to show Telin.

Usbak the Old admires the blade and then starts to bang the edge with a hammer. 'Hah, that was a good blade, no doubt. Ain't seen one I couldn't make better though. I'm knowin' yer cause and all I know is ye should take that ancient blade ta yer friend in the woods, he'll know what to do now. With that I'm gonna be takin muh leave. Debt paid and all. If'n yer wantin' another blade, which ye do, ye got enough ore left that Kinlo can do it for ye'

Usbak the Old despawns. Give the Small bit of Mithril Ore to Kinlo Stirngarm and he forges the "Refined Mithril Blade" for you.

Kinlo Strongarm says 'Erm. Well, I aint never worked with this stuff but here's what I got for ya. It ain't bad, pretty much like the one ye got there. I suppose ye should take the one the ancient made and show it ta yer friend.

Head to the Burning Woods again and give Telin Darkforest the Refined Ancient Sword. He returns the sword.

Telin Darkforest smiles slowly. 'Now that's fine work. Just a moment, we have a friend here who can enchant one of the blades. Give her the blade the ancient smithed.'

Faelin appears.

You say, 'Hail, Faelin'

Faelin says, 'Didn't think I was gone for good, did you? We're that much closer to finishing this trial of our strength, thanks to you.'

Give her the Refined Ancient Sword. She enchants it and returns it to you.

Faelin smiles at you, then closes her eyes as she sets the gem 'Nature's Balance' into the crossguard and begins to channel her spirit into the sword. The ground rumbles loudly as she casts. She collapses in exhaustion after a short time. 'Take the blade, and perhaps you can finish this. You must strike at Innoruuk's heart. Bring his shattered gem and the Mithril blade to Xanuusus. Only with Innoruuk's death can the balance of the land once again be restored. If we do not meet again, remember you always have my eternal thanks.'

This lands you the first half of the Ranger epic:

Skill: 1H Slashing Atk Delay: 21
DMG: 13
STR: +15 DEX: +5 STA: +10 HP: +50
Effect: Swift Spirit
WT: 2.0
Class: RNG

Now for the Earthcaller.

Head to the Plane of Hate in search of the "Shattered Emerald of Corruption." This item drops randomly off "mini bosses" (Grandmaster R'Tal, Coercer T'Vala, and Avatar of Abhorrance are confirmed) and frequently off Innoruuk himself.

Once you've obtained the emerald, find Xanuusus in North Karana.

You say, 'Hail, Xanuusus'

Xanuusus says 'Greetings, small one! I am Xanuusus of the Stormreapers. You are welcome to rest beneath my mighty branches.

Give Xanuusus the Refined Mithril Blade and the Shattered Emerald of Corruption.

Xanuusus waves his hands over the gem of corruption and a wave of warm energy passes through the area. With care for such a huge creature, he melds the gem into the sword and seems to glow all over as he channels energy into the weapon. 'Thus is the link of hate broken between Innoruuk and the spirit of earth. Through your will has balance returned. Your deeds, your work for the good of all, will be remembered by anyone who walks beneath the canopy of a forest or roams the plains. Continue your vigil over nature's balance.'

You now have the second half of your epic:

Skill: 1H Slashing Atk Delay: 24
DMG: 14
STR: +15 DEX: +10 STA: +5 HP: +50
Effect: Earthcall
WT: 2.0

Class: RNG

You get access to the title "Windcaller."

Just finished on my new little drakkin. Took about 3 days, only because of foraging. Someone in my guild later said, why don't you spend training points on it? Yea, that would have saved sometime lol. So I trained from 61 to 200 for about 3kpp.

Also, while up in Sky its a good idea to do the self clicky haste quest for rangers.

Two things. Take off your damage sheilds before doing the spawns in the Karanas. Today's DSes kill the NPCs too fast and you won't get your drops.

Also, Jaeil has been broken for 3 weeks now. He won't do any of his sighing, respond to hails or turn ins. Killing him doesn't help either. /bugging him does no good.

I just finished him this week, I had to sneak and stand behind in order to get Jaeil the insane to spawn. Did not hail, there was no need.

Also as a side note for the Shattered Emerald of Corruption, a bit of a hint/trick here is to get the information off of the bestiary for Lord of Ire in PoHate, he is easy to find and easy to spawn. We spent 7 hours looking for one beast that would drop the emerald, I hadn't checked the Lord of Ire's info or I would have had it right away. As soon as I had his info we went to his spot killed his place holder, he spawned within a half hour and dropped the SEoC the first time around. Good thing too since the server was coming down in 15 minutes lol.

on my ranger i managed to start this at level 48. I just dinged level 50 today, and have done everything up to Jaeil the Insane before this. So the whole "You have to be level 50 to start your epic" thing is crap. maybe to finish it, but i wont be able to find that out. Also, I had to hand in about 250-300 bat wings in the quest to go from Apprehensive to Amiable on Keepers of the Art faction in order to do the Pattern part of the epic.

be safe and good luck!

Faction with Keepers of the Art
# Jul 29 2006 at 11:21 PM Rating: Decent
IF by chance you are less than "Indifferent" with Alrik Farsight then you will NOT be able to do the Bat Wing Quest (From indifferent to Amiable takes roughly 50 sets(4X) of bat wings). However, I did find an easy solution for Druids. You can bind in South Felwithe in front of Elishia Leafrunner, then port to Surefalls Glade, zone into Jaggedpines to start the Jeremy's Letter quest. It took me about 20 trips to get from apprehensive to indifferent (roughly 1 hr).

Faelin in Burning Woods hand-in
# Jul 04 2006 at 5:23 AM Rating: Decent
At level 40, my Ranger could not get the triggered Faelin in Burning Woods to take the Refined Ancient Sword - "Amiable" faction, but she just will not accept it ("I have no need for this"). Telin also told me to go away when I hailed him, but he at least did accept the blade (to spawn Faelin) and return the sword.

I'll try again every level or so up to 50 - my guss is that it'll probably be accepted at 46.

PS: She's just called "Faelin" in BW, not "Faelin Bloodbriar".

I was kiting the two reavers aroundm trying to find the corrupter, then it said I lost my target and then a couple minutes later the reavers despawned
what do I have to do?
# Jul 01 2006 at 11:38 PM Rating: Decent
The 2 reavers spawn closer to the 2 trees. and will not aggro if ya far enough away, best way to do this is to forget about the reavers, and kill the Corruptor as fast as possible, asd he despawns after a short while, esp if noy aggro'd. once corrupter is dead, run down the reavers, who move slowly towards Althele, kill them then go do your turn in ( the reavers will kill the druids, and even if this happens, as long as u loots the tome off the corruptor, wait an hour for althele to respawn, if done right, or fast enough, u should be able to kill the reavers before the druids are attacked though )

Some info/data on Faelin stage of epic:

1. She runs in a circular path repeatedly.
2. One of the points in her path is 1940, 875.
3. She conned as RED to me at lvl 50 (This will help you in filtering track so you don't have to scroll so much).
4. Time between pops is not very long assuming you have killed whatever PH is necessary(if this is necessary at all, not sure based on my experience). I would estimate less than 30 min between pops.
5. Druid epic 1.0 is the same for first few parts. Did Faelin with 2 other druids doing their quest ... lol ... nice for ports

I will post where the 2 epics diverge ... gtg b4 druids continue without me ... lol

Took me around a week mainly for raids in The Hole (take a Gate potion and Ant Potion fellow Rangers) with a 70 Ranger, 70 Warrior and 54 Shaman..(Tip invis up).

The worst part of it all however was the SEoC a friend camp PoH for 7 hrs nothing droppped. Eventually bought an MQ for 10Kpp, was told later that was CHEAP!!!

Next pain is the hand in over in East Karana (look out for Knackerblack).

Then finally the MQ in Erudin, the NPC is ground floor in a room inside what looks like a safe.

The end products are excellent. You will notice the difference.

Big tip buy Gate Potions will save you a good few hours.

Spoke to a 55 Ranger he completed the lot of it with MQ's in 7 1/2 Hours.

Which dude would that be?

I had bad faction with Burning woods dude and was able to fix that in about 20 minutes in Freeport. Go to North freeport to the inn by the bank and stock up on muffins then go back to west freeport and give the muffins (4 at a time) to the guy stated at the beginning of this posting. Got faction quick!

Now my problem is the Felonis in Felwith, I'm doing the batwings quest to raise faction with Mr red robe in TD. I'm KoS and illusions dont fix that! I took a night killing the dark elf in West commonlands (8 minute respawn, snare, dot and hit him, he dies in 30 seconds or less). I went from scowling to Thretening. A few more nights and the epic can be continued!

Which dude was your issue again?

1500, 500 Find that location in Gfay and mark it on your map. Now kill all the orc pawns around you for 15 minutes or so then go back to the location on your map. Odds are you killed the right one and it'll spawn right there. Keep killing until Faelin Bloodbriar spawns.
PH Spawn Time
# Jul 11 2006 at 2:10 AM Rating: Decent
The spawn location is right, the PH orc pawn is on a definite three (3) minute timer. Been at him for a good half hour or so now with my trusty stopwatch nearby.

EDIT (hopefully doesn't result in double post, sorry if it does): Just foraged the Ripened Heartfruit while waiting for her to spawn, with a Forage skill of 37. Was a nice bonus to camping her.

You have to kill the corruptor first before the other 2 guys.
If you are tyring to kill him first and all 3 despawn on you, maybe you need more dps and kill him faster.

I know the order to kill them in, I have done this quest twice before. Once for my druid and once for my ranger. I am doing this for a friends ranger. I know dps was not an issue, as both times I had a full group of Anguish geared toons...but the Corruptor literally depoped about 8-10 seconds into the fight. Thats why I am thinking it may be bugged.
Anyhow I am about to give it another shot, and there has been a patch since the last attempt...so I may get lucky ;)

a little info
# Oct 08 2005 at 4:40 PM Rating: Excellent
So far this has been really easy. Couple notes i want to make from what I've read from others...
1)There's an error in the walkthrough. The cleric spell you need for VS is the level 47 rez spell, not level 49. (there isn't a level 49)
2) The corrupt guys were way easy. I did it with a 70 wizzy though lol. Kill the corrupt first.. loot, then kill the others.
3)I'm a level 50 halfling ranger so I've had to work on faction. I've found that doing the quests (muffins and batwings) were the easiest and quickest way to bring the factions up. Don't waste your time in Neriak lol. If you go to kill the 3 sisters, they're not even there anymore.

At first I was a little worried at how LONG this quest is. I mean, wow. But I've gotta say it's been kinda fun so far. My main is a 70 cleric who I play all the time so switching to the ranger and doing her epic has been a nice change of pace. My next step is VS. I've done it in the past multiple times for others. It wasn't too bad then, and now with all the super gear from the new expansions, it should be EASY! I'm going to try to duo it first with a 70 beast. I'll let you know how it goes.
RE: a little info
# Oct 17 2005 at 9:37 PM Rating: Default
one thing about cleric rez spell. idk if your new to the game, but at one time no classes at all got spells at level 47. it used to be at x4 and x9 ie 14,19,24,29,34,39. this is a kunark era where this applied and no one has updated it since. not saying ur info is wrong, just pointing something out.
RE: a little info

The text to say to her is "What two tasks?", not "What two things?" as the write-up suggests. Minor point, but could cause some frustration if things haven't been going your way.
