- In Kedge Keep, a harbinger of the seas can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Phinigel Autropos.
- In Dreadlands, a harbinger of frost can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Gorenaire.
- In Skyfire Mountains, a harbinger of flame can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Talendor.

Full Walkthrough

  • Find Malka Rale in Qeynos Catacombs.

  • You say, 'Hail, Malka Rale'

    Malka Rale says 'Whew! I thought you were one of Hanns' goons. These sewers are a mess, you never know what is going to turn up next. I really wish I could get out of here.'

    You say, 'Who is Hanns?'

    Malka Rale says 'Hanns runs the Circle of Unseen Hands. They had an item someone hired me to.. reacquire. I managed to get the item, stealing it right from the heart of the guild hall. The problem is, I had to carve a
    way out, and left a few extra holes in several of Hanns' people. I have been trapped down here in these stinking catacombs and sewers for too long now, and I do not think I can get out of here without some help.'

    You say, 'I can help'

    Malka Rale says 'Ok! I am trusting you. Take this pouch to Vilnius in West Karana. Last word I had from him, he was hanging out near one of the bandit camps. Be careful, since he does not know you. Just give him the pouch, and tell him I was.. delayed. While you are doing that, I will be thinking of a way to get out of this slimehole. With any luck, the Circle will learn the pouch is out of Qeynos, and will assume I got away. That means they won't be looking for me here.'


    If you wish, you can skip the three side quests with Vilnius the Small below and hand the pouch in directly to Anson (see below). The two blades you receive from Vilnius can also drop from the later mobs you have to kill if you are lucky. Renux no longer drops the Jagged Diamond Dagger, read below to find out how to obtain it.

  • Find Vilnius the Small in West Karana.

  • His loc is +180, -6715. His placeholder is "a brigand", but DON'T kill him. Leave the brigand alone, and Vilnius will spawn in his place at about 11:00pm game time.

    You say, 'Hail, Vilnius the Small'

    Vilnius the Small says ' _____, just because I am short don't mean I can't bounce your Vah Shir rump all over these hills. Now, do you have something for me, or are you just in search of a rump bouncing?'

    Do NOT say "I am in search of a rump bouncing" to him. He will attack, and you will likely have to kill him. Although there are no faction hits, you will have to wait at least a full game day (72 minutes) for him to respawn.

    You say, 'What about Malka?'

    Vilnius the Small says 'Malka Rale works for me from time to time. One of the best thieves I have ever met, and damn handy with a blade. She is long overdue to meet me here. I'm afraid she may have run into trouble in Qeynos.'

    You say, 'Malka will be delayed'

    Vilnius the Small says 'Yes, delayed. She has always been prompt in the past, but she is several days overdue, and I know for a fact she completed the job. I am beginning to wonder if something happened to her. I would go check, but I run the risk of missing her if she shows up here.'

  • Hand Vilnius the Small Stanos' Pouch.

  • Vilnius the Small says 'Ah, very nice. Very nice indeed. Good work, and I hope Malka is able to make it out, good help is hard to find. But in the meantime, I am without an acquisition expert. Do you want the job?'
    You gain experience!!

    You say, 'I want the job'

    Vilnius the Small says 'I need a few more items for a collector. They are rare and valuable, but I will pay you well for your trouble. I need the sword owned by the king of the Frogloks, the sword my distant cousin Karg is so proud of, and the matched set of Painbringer and Fleshripper, held by the kobolds. Return those to me quickly, and we will take it from there, eh?'

    The swords he needs are:

    Fleshripper, from the "Solusek kobold king" in Solusek's Lair (Sol B)
    Painbringer, from the "kobold champion" in Solusek's Lair (Sol B)
    Mithril Two-Handed Sword, from "The Froglok King" in Lower Guk (live side)
    Gigantic Zweihander, from "Karg Icebear" in Everfrost Peaks

  • Retrieve the swords and hand them to Vilnius the Small.

    Vilnius the Small says 'Very good, though how you managed to lug around all these oversized blades amazes me. I feel we can do business now, and Malta still has not shown up. Take this dagger. I had an old client who didn't, um.. pay.. so this was extracted from him. Right after it was inserted in him. For your next job, I need a collection of robes. The Robe of the Ishva, some Shining Metallic robes, an Oracle robe, and a Robe of the Kedge. I am not even sure where all these come from, but they are on my list here, and Rokyl is one of my best clients, so I figure that is your job.'

    You gain experience!!

    You receive 100 gold from Vilnius the Small.
    You receive 20 platinum from Vilnius the Small.

    You receive Jagged Diamond Dagger.

    The four robes you need are:

    Robe of the Kedge (from "Phinigel Autropos" in Kedge Keep or "Coercer Q`ioul" in Kithicor Forest)
    Robe of the Ishva (from "The Ishva Mal", a wandering gnoll in South Karana, or "Coercer Q`ioul" and "Advisor C`zatl" in Kithicor Forest)
    Shining Metallic Robes (from the "Ghoul Arch Magus" in Lower Guk - dead side)
    Robe of the Oracle (from the Oracle of K`Arnon in the Ocean of Tears)

  • Hand Vilnius the Small the four robes:

    Vilnius the Small says 'You do good work, _____. Here is another trinket for your trouble, you should be able to make use of it. Malta still hasn't made it back yet, and I have one more order to fill, if you're willing. This one should be easy. My sword collector has decided he wants rapiers now, of all things. He has asked for an Eyerazzia, a Martune Rapier, a Burning Rapier, and a well balanced rapier.'

    You gain experience!!

    You receive 200 gold from Vilnius the Small.
    You receive 15 platinum from Vilnius the Small.

    You receive Cazic Quill.

    Note that he mispronounces the rogue's name -- he says Malta, but her name is Malka. This time, you need:

    Burning Rapier (obtained from a fairly lenthy and irritating quest)
    Martune Rapier (from the "Mistress of Scorn" in the Plane of Hate)
    Eyerazzia (from "a scareling" in the Plane of Fear)
    Well-Balanced Rapier (purchased from various merchants, including the "Shady Swashbuckler" in East Commonlands tunnel, for 221pp)

  • Hand him the four rapiers he asked for.

    Vilnius the Small says 'You never cease to amaze me! I never thought you Vah Shir types could be so good at this sort of work. I have been stuck here and haven't any more trinkets to give you, but perhaps you could take this pouch to its new owner, since I do not have the time to deliver it myself. He will pay you in full, and you can just keep what he gives you, how does that sound? The owner is a man named Stanos Herkanor, and he or his friend Anson are supposed to meet me in Highpass this evening. Do not waste too much time getting there, he is a secretive man, and I can not guarantee he will be around long. Good luck, and maybe we will meet again. It is always a pleasure working with another professional such as

    You gain experience!!

    You receive 300 gold from Vilnius the Small.
    You receive 10 platinum from Vilnius the Small.

    You get back Stanos' Pouch.

  • Give the pouch to Anson McBale in Highpass Hold.

    Carson McCabe +7
    Merchants of Highpass +7

    You receive 100 gold from Anson McBale.
    You receive 25 platinum from Anson McBale.

    You say, 'Hail, Stanos Herkanor'

    Stanos Herkanor says 'Ah, the pouch. This is the first step, Anson. The Circle has to be upset having this taken right out from under them. That speaks well of the person who did the taking. [Hanns] must be even more furious now (chuckle).'

    Anson McBale says 'Vilnius has always had a good eye for talent. I think we can trust this one. But will he trust us? You have to wonder if he even knows [who we are]. . .'

    Stanos Herkanor says 'I tend to agree Anson. We could make a [deal]. I have a blade I won't use anymore, and you have those fine looking daggers Vilnius gave you. Of course, you would have to do something for me first. Let me tell you my [story], then you decide.'

    You say, 'Who are you?'

    Stanos Herkanor says '(chuckle) You are young, aren't you? I ran [the Circle] out of Qeynos for well over 30 years, and did a right fine job of it. It's a long story, and isn't over yet. I have much to answer for.'

    You say, 'What is the Circle?'

    Stanos Herkanor says 'The Circle of Unseen Hands, you oaf! The largest collection of thieves, murderers, con artists, and rogues in the world. No finer men can be found anywhere.'

    You say, 'What deal?'

    Stanos Herkanor says 'Aye, _____, we could make a deal. I have a blade I won't use anymore, and you have those fine looking daggers Vilnius gave you. Of course, you would have to do something for me first. Let me tell you my [story], then you decide.'

    You say, 'What story?'

    Stanos Herkanor says 'Johann Krieghor was the leader of the Circle and I was his second-in-command. He made a dark bargain with a Teir'dal [General]. The Circle was to assassinate [Joren], the high elf ambassador to Qeynos. Had the plot worked, it would have weakened the alliance between high elves and humans, and possibly caused a war between the two powers. In either case, the Teir'Dal would have profited greatly by this event, and all others would have suffered. I could not stand by and let this happen, but Johann would not be deterred, for the Teir'Dal had promised him much. I had no choice but to kill Johann and the Teir'Dal agent. I made it look like they offed each other, and then I hid the [tools].'

    You say, 'Who is Joren?'

    Stanos Herkanor says 'Joren was the boon companion to the King of Felwithe, a mighty paladin of great reknown, much loved by all the high elves. To slay him, certain. . .items. . .were crafted to make the job possible. With the death of the Teir'dal agent, and my theft of the [tools], the General was forced to abandon the plot.'

    You say, 'What General?'

    Stanos Herkanor says 'The General? I know not his true name, only that he is ranked high among the dark elves. He kept his identity secret, and it was only upon the death of his agent that I even learned the smallest amount about him, that of his Generalship. Knowing who he is would aid me greatly.'

    You say, 'What about Hanns?'

    Stanos Herkanor says 'Hanns Krieghor was a talented young man, in many ways much more of a man than his father. After the death of [Johann], I raised Hanns as my own son, and grew to love him as such. A few years back, to take revenge upon me for his [father's murder], Hanns seized control of the Circle. At the same time, he sent four of his best killers to finish me. The killers failed, I still live. Hanns still leads the Circle in Qeynos, and still seeks [my head].'

    You say, 'What father's murder?'

    Stanos Herkanor says 'Well, it's no great secret now that I was responsible for the death of Johann Krieghor, Hanns Krieghor's father. Johann used to lead the Circle. Hanns was but a pup when his father died at my hand, and became as a son to me. Hanns did not discover that I was the one who killed his father until many years later. For that, he wants [my head].'

    You say, 'Your head?'

    Stanos Herkanor says 'Aye, _____, Hanns has wanted me dead for years. He's tried many times, though not personally. He's smart, that one, for not facing me, but foolish for wasting so many good men for naught.'

    You say, 'What tools?'

    Stanos Herkanor says 'To allow the assassin to slay a prince, and fight his way back out, a fell blade was crafted. It was small enough to conceal under a garment and yet large enough to strike a mortal blow through armor. Aided by vile Teir'Dal enchantments, it is much more fearsome than it appears. I would glady rid myself of it, but I fear I can not until I [clear my name] with Hanns.'

    You say, 'Clear your name?'

    Stanos Herkanor says 'I need proof that what I say about Johann is truth, so that Hanns may forgive me. YOU can gather that proof for me. First, travel to Kaladim and Neriak, and there, upon the persons of the rogue
    guildmasters, you should find that which I seek, two parts of a document I recovered from the dead agent. I entrusted one to Founy, but that trust is gone, and Founy would betray me to Hanns were I to attempt to reclaim it. Tani N'mar has the other, which he should not possess, and keeps it only to spite me, not knowing its real import. Steal them both, and bring them back to me. And don't let anyone follow you! If I am not around, tell Anson you want to see me.'

    Side note: Hanns and Renux (Stanos' daughter) are both rogue guildmasters in North Qeynos. You can ask them about Stanos, along with some of the other rogues.

    You say, 'Hail, Hanns Krieghor'

    Hanns Krieghor says 'My name is Hanns.. Do as I say, and we shall get along just fine.'

    You say, 'What about Stanos?'

    Hanns Krieghor says 'Stanos Herkanor? (he roars in frustration) That bastard should be long dead by now. If you see him, you hightail it back and let me know at once. Do I make myself clear, _____? Do not speak to him, do not attack him, just return here and inform me. And that is ALL you need to know about Stanos.'

    You say, 'Hail, Renux Herkanor'

    Renux Herkanor says 'You need something, or are you just browsing?'

    You say, 'What about Stanos?'

    Renux Herkanor says 'What? (she looks shaken) I see it is time to make my choices. Forget you mentioned that name, _____. Leave me.'

    You say, 'Hail, Nax Ghruna'

    You say, 'What about Stanos?'

    Nax Ghruna says 'Come over here, bub. Listen to me, and don't say a word. That name is one that can get you killed. Hanns wants Stanos dead, Renux wants to please Hanns, and everyone else wants to keep their spinal column intact, you know? So, _Yourname_, now you can speak. Where did you hear that name, or did you actually see Stanos somewhere?'

    You say, 'What about Renux?'

    Zannsin Resdinet says 'She is second in command around here. She and [Hanns] go way back, from what I hear.. Renux is probably the only person Hanns trusts.'

    You say, 'What about Hanns?'

    Zannsin Resdinet says 'Hanns, he runs things around here. Years ago, Hanns took over Ghil's old ring and started up the Circle of Unseen Hands. The Circle quickly took any market opposition out of Qeynos. We currently have connections in Erudin, Highpass and even Freeport.'

    If you hang around the Rogue guild for a while, you will also overhear the following exchange.

    Renux Herkanor says 'Hanns, you are not going to want to hear this, but one of our boys in Donovon's gang swears he saw Stanos in the Karanas a week ago. And we still haven't cornered Malka Rale.'

    Hanns Krieghor says 'Finally, the rat comes out of his hole! Send some men, no no, go yourself, and track him down. Then kill him. I don't care who sees you, or who gets in your way. Finish the job. And bring me whatever you find on his carcass. I'm sure he took some valuables from us when he escaped. And don't worry about Malka, she will keep until you finish Stanos, then she is yours. Shame to waste such talent, but you don't steal from the Circle and live.'

    Renux Herkanor says 'Very well, Father is as good as dead. Did I ever mention that I really hate family reunions? (chuckle). I am gone!'

  • Find Tani N`Mar in the Hall of the Ebon Mask (rogue's guild) in Neriak Third Gate.

  • You say, 'Hail, Tani N`Mar'

    Tani N`Mar says 'Greetings! You must be a stranger or [new to the Hall]. If you are a stranger, be warned that these halls are intended for the Ebon Mask only. If you are found to be a member of another house, you just may feel the sting of a blade in your back.'

    You say, 'Do you know Stanos?'

    Tani N`Mar says 'Stanos? Hahahaha! That old fool crossed my path a few times in the past, but he is not able to trouble me now. If you see him, tell him Tani sends Hahahaha!'

    You say, 'I need the note'

    Tani N`Mar says 'Oh, you want that piece of paper Stanos was so hot after?' He taps his belt pouch. 'Well, it's mine now, though it looks like ogre scratch to me. You're not getting it, Stanos is not getting it, and Hanns is not getting it. It is MINE! Now, _Yourname_, scamper off like the dog you are, before I decide I need more practice with these short swords!''

    Pickpocket a Stained Parchment Bottom from Tani. There is no minimum skill required, although higher skill might speed up the process and reduce the number of times you get caught, in which case Tani attacks. If that happens, you can run to the zone out. Yaz Tolax will assist Tani so be careful.

  • Find Founy Jestands outside the bank in North Kaladim.

  • You say, 'Hail, Founy Jestands'

    You say, 'What do you know of Stanos?'

    Founy Jestands says 'Um, er.. (looks around nervously) Have you actually seen Stanos? How.. is he? Um, I have things I should be doing. I've got to figure out how this pottery wheel got stuck on my foot, for one thing. Er, I really don't have anything to tell you about Stanos, really, I swear it.'

    You say, 'Do you have a note?'
    Founy Jestands says 'I don't know what you're talking about, if you know what I mean.' Founy fingers his belt pouch. 'You should leave now, if you know what's good for you. Don't make me sic the crew on you.'

  • Pickpocket a Stained Parchment Top from Founy. Again, no minimum skill, and again, if you get caught, run to the nearby zone out.

  • You say, 'Hail, Anson McBale'

    Anson McBale says 'Beat it, _____, unless you have something for me.'

    You say, 'I need to see Stanos'

    Anson McBale says 'This better be important.'

  • Stanos spawns. Hand him the two pieces of parchment you pickpocketed.

  • Stanos Herkanor says 'Excellent! With this document I can..' (He pauses for a moment). 'Damnation! Curse my tired old mind, I forgot that I could not read the document. It is written in some obscure code or language. I can't decipher it, but I know someone who can. Seek out one called Eldreth, an Erudite who used to do work for me. I know not where he may be found these days, only that he will not be found in Erudin, as they want his head for some misdeed in the past. Give him the complete parchment, and tell him I sent you. He owes me.'

    Faction adjustments are
    Highpass Guards +100
    Carson McCabe +15
    Merchants of Highpass +15
    Corrupt Qeynos Guards +5
    The Freeport Militia +5
    You gain experience!!

  • Find Eldreth in Lake Rathetear.

  • (To save time, bring 100pp and two bottles of milk with you. The milk can also be purchased from the ogre vendors in the zone.) He spawns in the same tower as Cyanelle, at the bookcase next to her. He is a moderately rare spawn, and he despawns after you complete a hand-in. He can take up to eight hours (real time) to respawn afterwards. If he's not there, all you can do is wait or return another time.

    You say, 'Hail, Cyanelle'

    Cyanelle says 'Hello, _____.'

    You say, 'Where is Eldreth?'

    Cyanelle says 'Eldreth is not here right now. *chuckle* He went to find work, but if you know Eldreth, you would know that 'Eldreth working' is an oxymoron! Sometimes I wonder why I still share this tower with him. I
    suppose I get lonely on this lake, and Jebeker here never has much to say. But I digress. Eldreth will be back sooner rather than later, I would think. You are welcome to stay here and keep me company until he returns, or you can check back later. He is seldom gone more than a few days.'

    Eventually, Eldreth appears.

    Eldreth glowers at you dubiously -- looks kind of dangerous.

    You say, 'Hail, Eldreth'

    Eldreth says 'Go away! I'm busy! I don't have time for scoundrels like you! Leave me alone or I shall, um..turn you into, er, a fish or something! That is what us powerful wizards do to those who annoy us! Yes, that is it. A fish! *leans towards you, looking abashed* Did that sound scary enough?'

    You say, 'Stanos sent me'

    Eldreth says 'Stanos? Stanos Herkanor? I thought he was long dead. He nearly got me killed, in any case. What does the old fool want of me now?'

    You say, 'He wants you to translate a note'

    Eldreth says 'Ah, codes are my specialty! It's what I did for the Circle before Hanns took over. But the Fox is wrong. I owe him nothing! As a fact, he owes me! He wants this translated - he will have to pay!'

    You say, 'What will he have to pay?'

    Eldreth says 'Aye, pay, and pay you must. I need 100 platinum pieces to begin my work. This tower is old and drafty and it will take that much to make it bearable. And while you're at it, I need something else. I am
    very busy here and have no time to shop, so bring me back a couple bottles of milk along with your very large bag of platinum, and I will translate anything you wish at that time.'

  • Give him 100pp, two bottles of milk, and the note from Stanos. I didn't sneak or do anything fancy; he took the hand-in just fine at dubious faction.

  • Eldreth looks at you, obviously expecting more. Did you forget the milk?

    Eldreth looks at you, obviously expecting more. Did you forget the milk?

    Eldreth looks at you, obviously expecting more. Did you forget the milk?

    Eldreth says 'Hmm, interesting. This document is not only encoded, but written in a very obscure language. From what I can gather, it's a variant of elder Teir'dal, but not one I've encountered. I can not fully translate this, but I know one who can. Find Yendar and give him this'

    Faction adjustments are
    Order of Three +400
    Bloodsabers -100
    Guards of Qeynos +60
    Opal Dark Briar -60
    You gain experience!!

    Receive: Scribbled Parchment

  • Find Yendar Starpyre in Steamfont Mountains. Yendar wanders the zone.

  • You say, 'Hail, Yendar Starpyre'

    Yendar Starpyre says 'Hail, traveler! I sense you did not simply chance upon my isolation here, but are instead seeking me for something.'

    You say, 'Eldreth sent me'

    Yendar Starpyre says 'Eldreth, Eldreth, hmm, was that a rather shabby Erudite? I have dealt with him in the past, I am sure. What does he want of me?'

    You say, 'He needs you to translate a note'

    Yendar Starpyre says 'Oh, if it is written in Elder Teir'Dal, most likely I can translate it. I will be happy to try, in any case. Let me see it, please.'

  • Hand Yendar Starpyre the Scribbled Parchment.

  • Yendar Starpyre says 'I say, this is indeed a challenge. This is written in what I'm sure is the language of the High Priesthood of Innoruuk. I've often wished I could read this, but I have never had the key to unlock the language. Take this for now.'
    You gain party experience!!

    Receive Tattered Parchment.

    You say, 'What is the key?'

    Yendar Starpyre says 'In the Plane of Hate, where dwell Innoruuk and his minions, there is a tome. This tome is called the Book of Souls.'

    You say, 'What book of souls?'

    Yendar Starpyre says 'The Book of Souls chronicles all the lives Innoruuk has tainted over the years. It is in the care of the Maestro of Rancor. I can use this tome as a basis for my translation, if you return it and the note to me. An experienced practitioner in the art of non-detection should be able to snatch it from its resting place, don't you think, _____? (grin)'

  • Obtain the Book of Souls; it is a ground spawn in the Plane of Hate.

  • The loc is approximately +178, -320, on the top of a dresser. It looks like an open faced book. The undead in the Plane of Hate will see through sneak/hide and normal invis, but other than that, you should be able to reach the book without too much trouble.

  • Return to Yendar and hand both him the Book of Souls and the Tattered Parchment he gave you.

  • Yendar Starpyre says 'My, this is quite a large list! Yes, I can use the names and dates recorded here to help me understand the script. It should be a simple matter now. A moment, please. Aha, yes, there we go.
    Traslated as best I can! I do hope you're not involved in what is described here, as it is quite fiendish. Oi! You, woman! Give that back! _____, that woman there took your letter! I think I should leave you to discuss it with her. Best of luck!'
    You gain experience!!

  • Yendar despawns and Renux appears. Note that she is Stanos' daughter. She will not attack until provoked.

  • Renux Herkanor regards you indifferently -- looks kind of dangerous.

    You say, 'Hail, Renux Herkanor'

    Renux Herkanor says 'BOO! I'm sure you didn't expect to see me here, but you've left quite a trail. Why did you go to all the trouble to get this scrap of parchment? What can be so important about it that Father would
    risk all for it? No matter, Hanns will figure it out. Now, will you tell me where to find Stanos?'

    You say, 'Stanos is in Highpass Hold'

    Renux Herkanor says 'Excellent. Stanos shall meet his end, and soon. You, however, will not live another day. Can't have you warning him, now can I?'

  • Renux attacks. Kill her. You will probably need some help with her.

  • You have slain Renux Herkanor!

    Your faction standing with Circle Of Unseen Hands got worse.
    Your faction standing with Merchants of Qeynos got better.
    Your faction standing with Corrupt Qeynos Guards got worse.
    Your faction standing with Guards of Qeynos got better.
    Your faction standing with Kane Bayle got worse.

    Renux Herkanor's corpse says '(gasp) Tell Hanns I tried, and will love him always. Tell Father I will save a seat in Hell for him!'

    --You have looted a Trochilic's Skean.--
    --You have looted a Translated Parchment.--
    --You have looted a Ravenscale Shoulderpads.--
    --You have looted a Ravenscale Mask.--

  • Loot the Translated Parchment from her corpse.

  • It reads:


    We are ready for you to move into the next phase of the plan.

    I have read your thoughts on the x'kanta Johann, and his chosen tool,
    Stanos. Johann is a willing pawn, and will serve us well, for greed is yet
    another facet of Innoruuk's power.

    Stanos should also work out well, he is quite formidable, though I
    understand he does not yet know he has been chosen to actually carry out the
    task. Watch him well when the time comes, but I agree with your judgement.

    Joren will be in Qeynos the entire month, so you have ample time to s'ktkar
    your task. Enclosed are the tools you will give to the Human x'kanta.

    The blade is a gift from Innoruuk himself, forged in his temple and imbued
    with rage. Be sure to recover it after the mission is complete, it is much
    too powerful to leave in the hands of those we intend to il'kaash in the
    future. Combined with Stanos' skill, Joren and his guards should fall

    The Guise has been handcrafted my our Master Coercer and should allow the
    wearer to pass undetected as Koada'dal, thus allowing the assassin to gain
    entry into the Ambassador's quarters. Luckily, it shall be a Human
    transforming himself into that zm'rina form.

    Be sure to eliminate all the human x'kanda you have recruited, and have no
    fear of the repercussions, for the Circle of Unseen Hands is no threat to us
    here in Neriak. I have spoken with your master Tani N'mar and he assures
    me that his group of x'kantar will aid us if need be.


  • Take the note back to Stanos and hand it to him.

  • Stanos Herkanor says 'Let me see what you have here. Aha, so that's who.. yes, yes! There is one more thing I need you to do. This document tells me who the originator of the plot really was. His name is General V'ghera, which is interesting, as Anson's men have spotted him in Kithicor recently. He will not be easy to get to, but if you give this box to one of his many aides, the General will HAVE to come to investigate. You see, this box used to contain the tools crafted for the assassination. When he arrives, kill him! I need any documents you find on him - with luck it will be enough evidence to convince Hanns that what I say is true. Bring any documents or dispatch cases you find, along with those blades Vilnius made you work so hard for, and we will make a trade.'

    Your faction standing with Carson McCabe could not possibly get any better.
    Your faction standing with Merchants of Highpass could not possibly get any better.
    Your faction standing with Corrupt Qeynos Guards got better.
    Your faction standing with The Freeport Militia got better.
    You gain experience!!

    Receive a Sealed Box.

  • Head to Kithicor Forest.

  • The dark elf contingent spawns in a burned-out cabin during the game's night. You can use sneak/hide to safely approach the cabin, though watch out for wandering undead that may see you. Give the Sealed Box that Stanos gave you to any of the dark elves in the cabin. It does not have to be Coercer Q'ioul specifically, but be careful you don't hand it to a pet by mistake!

    Adjutant D`kan says 'The general will want to look at this. Wait here.'
    You gain party experience!!

  • General V`ghera appears. Have a group or raid nearby and kill him.

  • You have slain General V`ghera!
    You gain party experience!!

    Your faction standing with Fallen of Bloody Kithicor could not possibly get any worse.

    General V`ghera's corpse shouts 'You think you have won, do you? INNORUUK, MY LORD AND MASTER, I INVOKE YOUR WRATH UPON THIS WRETCHED FOREST! Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!'

  • Loot a General's Pouch from his corpse. He will also occasionally drop a Cazic Quill, which you will need if you did not do the side quest with Vilnius.

  • Return to Stanos and hand him both the Jagged Diamond Dagger and the Cazic Quill plus the General's Pouch, all at once.

  • Stanos Herkanor says 'Did you forget something?'

    Stanos Herkanor says 'Did you forget something?'

    Stanos Herkanor says 'Very well done. I leave now to confront Hanns with this evidence. Even so, it will not be easy to regain his trust. That is why I need those daggers, in case all else fails. (chuckle) Bristlebane grant me luck - I can no longer live like a hunted dog. In any case, I am grateful for your aid. Take this wretched blade, I can bear it no longer. I must warn you, I feel it carries Innoruuk's curse; all who are near it learn the meaning of hate. (chuckle) Ironic, isn't it? You went to all that work to redeem yourself for a rapier, yet the true reward came when you redeemed another. (chuckle). Good luck, _____, for much as I, you will need it.'

    Actually the 'notes' are the top and bottom of a torn (possibly stained) parchment. Only the pieces pick pocketed from the two rogue guild masters. I'd have to check on the exact names, but no, the notes you're referring to cannot be used to get your Ragebringer. ;)

    Calling someone stupid for asking a simple question, damn it Spire, you're such a moron.

    You can stick your Ragebringer you-know-where.

    No, this note cannot be used for our epic. You need the 2 notes from the Dwarf Rogue GuildMaster, and the one from the Darkelf Rogue GuildMaster. Only those 2 pieces will work.

    Reading up on some of the other posts. Seems to be some question on Stanos' spawn. When I went to turn in the three items for the Ragebringer Stanos was not there. All I did was stand on the table behind Anson, hailed him and then said "I need to see Stanos".

    Stanos immediately popped up next to Anson. That's all you have to do to spawn him. Doesnt matter if its day, night or you click your heels three times and pick your nose.
    Got mine! :)
    # Aug 18 2001 at 8:51 AM Rating: Good
    Got mine a couple of nights ago. The Kedge Robe was the last item I needed and I basically had plopped my Rogue down near the Dark-Elf camp in Kith and would check in every now and then to see if she had it on. Well, two nights ago I logged on and there she was all in green. Quickly gathered some Guildies together (thanks RoF!) and before I knew it, the Kedge was mine and I was on my way to WK to turn them in. Then it was off to Highpass.
    The highest backstab i've had so far was 450 and thats, surprisingly, not all that rare to get (typically its anywhere from 120s to 380s). I pierce for about 70-80 regularly and FAST with the haste. Anyway, if you have any questions about the quest send an e-mail to You'll get none of this, "I heard...." nonsense. I was reading a post up top where someone had mentioned that the Coercer spawns at 10:00 at night. Nonsense. She has an 8 hour RL spawn. If someone has just killed her without your knowledge and you're standing around until 10:00 for her to show, you're going to be standing there for quite some time. Anyway, if you need real info, let me know.
    RE: Got mine! :)
    # Oct 02 2001 at 2:03 PM Rating: Default
    Well actually the information you read is just dated, not really wrong. They redid the spawns a while back. The cabin used to spawn a lot more frequently, and the General could only be spawned at night. ;)
    Quest for those with epic
    # Aug 15 2001 at 12:06 PM Rating: Decent
    OK I never done and epic I never really done a quest where I camp something and I never have have been on a real raid, (hell all my guilds have been crap so far) I just want to know how hard is this quest? I figure everything up to the two mobs should be easy? but how about the mobs?

    also is this quest harder or easier then the other epics to organize and do.

    If you do respond please tell me what epics you HAVE done as I don't feel like having to hear from EVERYONE who does not know anything about epic weapons ("well I will just pick this up saturday" though that is what it sounds like you can do if you have a good group and a lot of sows you might be able to do this quick, is that possible either?.)

    Hey guys, when you all say the robes dont drop from the DE's....they do

    The guy with 2 level 60 said he got the gem encrusted mace....make me laugh..thats not even the same mob you killed man.The robes are dropped off the coercer who spawn at 10PM in the DE's house. the only reason why you should let only the chaplin alive when you kill some DE's be4 the night killing coercer is because every mob(at day) spawn a different DE(at night) and the chaplin spawn the if you wanna kill the coercer for the robes, kill every DE's except the chaplin be4 the night and then you'll get the coercer spawn alone!! magic =)

    Well, this has been the most conclusive source of information I have been able to find on this quest. I will be attempting it soon so I have been doing my homework on it. I just hit level 45 HELL and will be attempting the epic quest at level 50-52 (I hope)! At any rate, I just wanted to say thank you to Bedon Speedyfeets for his wonderful post.

    After completing this quest, I will post an update as to any alternate methods used and the exact strategy my groups utilized to defeat the mobs during this quest. Wish me luck!

    When it comes to info on rogue quest try Head over to the library section (where people can't post their "no THIS is how I hear it was done" crap) and you will find a complete listing of what needs to be done. Of course with the changes that are always taking place I wouldn't be surprised if that became outdated soon too. Still, it is the best rogue only web site I have found to date.
    Ragebringer Seething Fury
    # Jun 04 2001 at 7:13 PM Rating: Default
    Well, I'm not sure if anyone else noticed, but do the math, and you get stats of 18 dmg and 18 dly on this baby. This is the only weapon in the game that matches dmg up with dly.
    Also, Seething Fury does not last only 7.5 ticks. It is a permanent thing; as soon as you equip your RB, it procs and Seething Fury sticks as long as you keep the Ragebringer in hand
    RE: Ragebringer Seething Fury
    # Jun 25 2001 at 1:28 AM Rating: Good
    ummm...there are a few weapons in the game where the dmg is higher than the delay. for example rod of annihaltion(60/40), To Bo monk stick..not sure on the name...44/41 or something.
    Full Quest Spoiler From Safehouse
    # Feb 27 2001 at 6:07 PM Rating: Excellent
    <Thanks to Quarr Shadowsneaker for putting this together and to the countless rogues who have helped perfect the Rogue Epic Quest.


    (MUST be level 50 to talk to all major quest NPCs and have them respond with the quest info and to be able to be rewarded with turn-ins, even the side quests)

    1) Find Malka Rale in the Qeynos Aqueducts at location +380, -210, +80. Say "I will help" to get "Stanos' Pouch."
    &#8211; Malka's placeholder is "A courier."
    &#8211; "A courier" will despawn at 8 p.m. game time, then Malka will spawn at 10 p.m. game time in the place of the courier.
    &#8211; The courier does NOT need to be killed to get Malka to spawn, just wait till 10 p.m.

    2a) Travel to North Kaladim and locate Founy Jestands at location +520, +307, -35. Pick pocket the "stained parchment top" from him. He is a rogue GM near the bank.
    &#8211; He will despawn at 8 a.m. game time and respawn at 10 a.m.
    &#8211; He will NOT always spawn with the parchment piece.
    &#8211; If you get caught while PPing then zone ASAP - the zone is close.

    2b) Travel to Neriak 3rd Gate and locate Tani N'Mar at location +650, -1300. Pick pocket the "stained parchment bottom" from him. He is a rogue GM in the rogue guild hall.
    &#8211; He will despawn at 8 p.m. and respawn a total of 5 times between then and 10 p.m. (This may be a bug)
    &#8211; He will NOT always spawn with the parchment piece.

    3) Find Stanos Herkanor in Highpass Hold (in secret smugglers camp - must go through underwater tunnel) at location +10, +325, +45. Give him both the "stained parchment top" and the "stained parchment bottom" at the same time to receive the "Combined Parchment."
    &#8211; If Stanos is not in the camp then give Anson McBale "Stanos' Pouch" you received from Malka Rale to spawn him. (Be sure to stand on the table behind Anson when giving him "Stanos' Pouch" or Stanos may not spawn - this happens because you may be standing on Stanos' spawn point)
    &#8211; If Anson is not in the camp you will have to kill his smuggler placeholder.
    - The smugglers are fairly high level and will require a full well rounded 50+ group to kill. (although they can be killed with less, it is unsafe to do so)
    - Stanos was found to have spawned after saying to Anson that "I need to see Stanos." He will say it better be important and Stanos will spawn if you are not standing on his spawn point. NOTE: you may have to do the pouch method first time though, cause you may need high faction for this.

    4) Travel to Lake Rathetear and locate Eldreth in the island tower at location +2600, -550. Hand Eldreth the "Combined Parchment," 100 platinum, and 2 bottles (unstacked) of milk all at once to receive the "Scribbled Parchment." If you don't have at least indifferent faction with him, SNEAK when turning in the items. Eldreth will then despawn.
    - Eldreth is a totally rondom spawn spanning anywhere from many hours to a few days (Real Life Time).

    5) Travel to the Plane of Hate to pick up the "Book of Souls." Located at location -60, +320, the spawn time is 10 hours (rumored to despawn 1 minute after spawning, but still unconfirmed). The book spawns on the bedside night stand in the bedroom located in the top floor of Maestro of Rancor's building.
    &#8211; Wandering NPC's and MOBs will pick up the book if left lying, so be quick in picking it up!

    6)Travel to the Steamfont Mountains and locate Yendar Starpyre (a gnome in an SMR.) After he has been located hail him to keep him from running (saying "book" also stops him) and give him the "Scribbled Parchment" you received from Eldreth. He in turn will give you another note called a "Tattered Parchment" then despawn. After you have received the "Tattered Parchment" from him, you must wait for him to respawn. After you locate him a second time give him the "Tattered Parchment" and the "Book of Souls" at the same time. He will then despawn and a level 50 female human rogue named Renux Herkanor will spawn nearby (she quads for 200+ and wields a weapon which procs clockwork poison - a spinning stun spell.) Quickly engage combat or she will despawn in a short period of time. After Renux has been killed, loot the "Jagged Diamond Dagger" and the "Translated Parchment" from her. She also drops an off-hand only 1HS sword called the Trochilc's Skean which procs clockwork poison and 2 new pieces of Ravenscale armor.
    &#8211; Yendar wanders the entire zone so have a tracker.
    - Yendar is a totally rondom spawn spanning anywhere from many hours to a few days (Real Life Time).
    &#8211; The "Jagged Diamond Dagger" can also be obtained through a side-quest involving Vilinus the Small (See Side Quests.)
    &#8211; WARNING: It is said that after Renux is killed, Yender will respawn immediately after. THIS IS FALSE INFO - YENDAR IS RANDOM SPAWN

    Key Pointers
    - Renux will NOT attack pets
    - She can be outrun with Jboots and/or SoW
    - Do NOT melee her no matter what, you WILL die if you do.
    - She will NOT summon
    - Renux will go after the nearest PC on her agro list
    - She can be feared and snared, but not easily (especially for lower lvl chars)

    Perferred Method (safest) note: I need her resistance info - anyone?
    Gather together a force of about 18 people (3 full groups) primarily composed of casters and pet classes, also, at least 1 res able cleric (melee classes will not attack, only kite her - unless she has been feared).

    - Have all pet classes summon their pets and arm them (mage weapons work best).
    - Have SoW cast on EVERYONE, all pets included
    - Have the cleric buff vital stats (HP and AC) on all PCs - pets not needed unless you add attack rating. (this is because they will NOT be attacked)
    - Have a shaman fully vital stat and speed buff ALL pets. (may also want to buff meleers if you intend to fear kite)

    - The Fight -

    - Once Renux has spawned quickly have a melee char agro her and begin running her around (be sure NOT to loose agro with her)
    - Send in ALL pets to chase her
    - IF you have a sham or magi able to cast malo/mala do so now (casters, stay as far back as possible when casting)
    - Once malo/mala has landed (if you have that option) then attempt to snare and fear her.
    - If fear sticks then send in all meleers to begin attacking and have all nukers nuke. (if fear breaks meleers MUST back off ASAP)
    - If fear does not stick then continue to "pet kite" her and try again.
    - Continue trying to fear and if you cannot get it to stick let the pets kill her off (nuking is not recommended unless she is feared)
    - If the "kiting tank" dies then have another melee char pick her up while the cleric resses - if she looses agro for too long she will despawn causing you to begin the quest over.

    She should quickly die with this manner of "reverse pet kiting" and/or "fear kiting."

    7) Return to Highpass Hold and re-locate Stanos (if he is not up see #3 above) in the smuggler's camp. Give him the "Translated Parchment" you looted from Renux and in turn you will receive "a sealed box."

    8) Travel to Kithicor Forest and locate the Dark Elf House at location +800, +2400. Give the box to any one of the night spawns there to spawn General V'Ghera. Pull the General to a safe spot and kill him. Once he has fallen, loot the "General's Pouch" from him. Also, if he dropped the rare "Cazic Quill" loot this item as well. He drops many other things that are not needed for the quest and may be given to those that helped you though the quest.
    &#8211; If he did not drop the "Cazic Quill" you must obtain it through a side quest involving Vilinus the Small (See Side Quests.)

    GENERAL V'GHERA STRATEGY - note that this is only one of the many ways of defeating him - there are other stratagies that work just as well, if not better then this one


    - Gather together at min 36 players (6 full groups - more if they are split up) or up to about 50 if needed (it is reccomended that you do NOT get more then 50 or the zone may crash or too many will go LD and you will loose because of this)

    The Teams are:

    PULL TEAM: Quest Rogue with the "sealed box", 56+ Shadow Knight OR Monk, and at least 2-3 56+ TANKS, and a 55+ Magi with CoH to summon the rogue after the hand off (total = 4-6 people)

    TANK TEAM: 56+ Cleric, 56+ Enchanter, 56+ Shaman, and 3 high level TANKS

    UNDEAD CONTROL DETAIL TEAM: All enchanters (as high lvl as possible)

    NUKE TEAM (there may be more then 1 nuke team): As many LURE available Wizards as possible!, Magi and Necros w/pets

    OTHERS: the best teams are composed of 4 tanks and 2 clerics to keep them alive, all the casters should be grouped into their own groups - no nukers with the tanks

    Get the highest level players as possible - if you haven't got at least 2 teams of 56+ chars it is NOT reccomended you do this battle


    Location: +800, +2400

    Resistance Info:
    - Weak to Lure based spells (usually hits for 100% dmg)
    - Weak to Poison spells (this includes ALL rogue poisions)
    - Weak to Scent line of spells
    - Weak to Mala/Malo
    - Weak to Fire based spells (after mala/malo fire base hits for avg of 80% dmg)
    - Strong to Magic based spells

    Level: 63

    Damage: hits for 250-285 (quads) - attacks fast!

    Abilities: Lifetap, Harm Touch, Stuns, Summons

    Class: Shadowknight

    Pull Tactics: He will NOT summon undead to his aid, all undead are agroed by the puller, this means GET AN INVIS TO UNDEAD B4 THE PULL!!

    1) Set up forces at the crossroads - +800, +3200


    3) 4pm: Pull Team and Tank Team move to the ridge west of the DE cabin at location +800, +2400

    4) Kill ALL PHs in the cabin by 7pm (EXCEPT the Chaplain - if this guy agros mez and mem blur him) (note: this is done by ONLY the pull and tank teams)

    5) Kill ALL nearby undead by 8pm, EVERYTHING

    6) All pull team members get an invis to undead from the cleric (except for rogue) - may want to have spare invis to undead potions

    7) Tank Team moves back to crossroads

    8) 9pm: Chaplain will despawn - Begin speed buffing and DS buffs

    9) FD Puller (wether it be the Shadowknight or Monk) moves into cabin (near where the chaplain despawns but not on his spawn point) and FDs - NO NPCs should be in the cabin at this time, if one spawns other then the Coercer, KILL IT ASAP

    10) ROG moves to opposite side of cabin where the FD puller will pull the coming Coercer to (this location needs to be far enough away from the cabin so that anyone walking into the cabin will not agro her but far enough away from all undead)

    11) 11pm: The Coercer spawns, FD puller pulls to the waiting ROG (who is hidden and sneaking)

    12) ROG gives box to the Coercer from behind while sneaking then rehides, General V'Ghera spawns a few seconds later (hand off needs to be fast so the Coercer does not return to the cabin) If the ROG agros her just sit and die, DO NOT PULL TO GROUP, the cleric will get you later (make sure you get LOC) If the hand off is sucessful then have the Magi - who is still located at the base camp - CoH the ROG back to camp and get rdy for the incoming General.

    13) Highest lvl tank on the pull team pulls the General to the waiting forces at the crossroads - make sure you do not get too far away from the General or he will go back to the cabin (if the first tank dies while pulling then the second highest tank ont he pull team will take over and so on until the General is at the camp) NOTE: Call of Hero can be used to bring the FD puller and ROG back to camp safely - use this only when you have a mag in pull team that stays in camp during pull.

    14) All forces at crossroads engage - EXCEPT the Enchanters... ALL (or at min 2) the Enchanters will have the sole responsibilty of keeping the undead that arrive mezed (MAINLY THE HEALERS)

    *Since the General is lvl 63 his corpse will not rot for 30 mins - the ROG should loot first, make sure to get the "General's Pouch" and IF it drops the "Cazic Quill." All other loot from the General is NOT needed for the quest and SHOULD be given out to the helping forces - distribute however you see fit


    9) After you have obtained the "Jagged Diamond Dagger," the "Cazic Quill," and the "General's Pouch," travel to Highpass Hold and give them all at once to Stanos to receive the Ragebringer. (If Stanos is not in the camp, see #3 above.)


    These three side quests involve an NPC named Vilinus the Small. He can be located in Western Karanas in the bandit camp at location +340, -6700. Making him spawn will take some work. First, be sure all bandits are in the camp. You must kill and continue to kill the bandit which runs from the camp to the top of the hill until the "brigand" spawns. The "brigand" is an ultra-rare spawn. Leave the "brigand" alone, and at 11 p.m. game time Vilinus the Small will spawn in his place. From here, there are 3 sub-quests you are able to complete all of which earn you a different item.

    &#8211; The first sub quest will result in the "Jagged Diamond Dagger." Return to Vilinus the Small all at once a "Fleshripper" (from the "Kobold King" in Sol B), a "Painbringer" (from the "Kobold Champion" in Sol B), a "Mithril Two-Handed Sword" (from the "Froglok King" in Lower Guk - live side), and a "Gigantic Zwiehander" (from "Karg Icebear" in Everfrost Peaks.)

    &#8211; The second quest results in a "Cazic Quill." Return to Vilinus the Small all at once a "Robe of the Kedge" (from "Phinigel Autropos" in Kedge Keep OR the "Coercer" in Kithicor Forest), a "Robe of Ishva" (from the "Coercer" in Kithicor Forest - and I think one other place), "Shiny Metallic Robes" (from the "Ghoul Arch Magi" in Lower Guk), and a "Robe of the Oracle" (from the Oracle in the Ocean of Tears.)

    &#8211; The third quest results in "Stanos' Pouch." Yes, that is the same item Malka Rale gives you in Qeynos Aqueducts. Return to Vilinus the Small all at once a "Burning Rapier" (obtained from a quest), a "Martune Rapier" (from "A Scorn Banshee" in the Plane of Hate), an Eyerazzia (from "A Scareling" in the Plane of Fear), and a "Well Balanced Rapier" (from the "Shady Swashbuckler" in East Commons.)

    NOTE: Although the "Side Quests" yield many of the same items as the quest needs, it soley cannot be done to complete the quest. Renux drops the "Jagged Diamond Dagger," Malka Rale gives you "Stanos' Pouch," and the General drops the "Cazic Quill," although the Quill is VERY rare and will most likely have to be obtained though the side quest with the midgit. >

    i used your guide and it has been great except i think i found something that might make it better when i wanted stanos to spawn i just hailed anson and said i need to see santos it DOES work i dont think you even need the stanos pouch since its rotting away in my inventory and second now renux is immune to fear since i tried her last night and we thought we all were gona die but i was the only one =/ grrr hehe and i think we did it with about 15 people and we were all under 55 it did take about 30second to get snare to stick but when we did we just argrro kited her pretty easy except when little rogues **** her off she doesnt even hit to hard just fast even when slowed by a shaman.

    Heh if you're scared by this epic quest it's a good thing you picked a rogue. Not that I know personally, but I've heard that this is the easiest of all the epics to get. And from checking the other epics, I'd agree. Specifically, the cleric quest, which requires that you kill at least 2 or 3 high level (55-65) mobs, and several lower level ones.

    About Stanos... I think it might be a good idea to hand in the pouch at night as well... all the other NPC's seem to only come out at night time, and I just had to get a second pouch to make him spawn. I didn't check what time it was the first time I turned in the pouch, I think it was mid-morning (8am or so). The second time I made sure I turned it in at night and he spawned. Fastest way to do it is take a druid into the Aqueducts, grab the pouch as soon as Malka spawns, then port to Misty Thicket and run from there.

    Malka Rale actually spawns at +365, -202, -81. The difference in the third number is VERY important... +80 is actually up above in the new Bloodsabre guild hall, and although my rogue was dubious with those guys, your mileage may vary (I'm agnostic, probably helped). Loc's can get pretty confusing down there, since it's basically just a big maze... if you've never been in the aqueducts before you'll have a hard time finding it, but if you've explored the zone you should know where the lower part is (with the smugglers, the named beggar, and the shark room). Go down both ramps to the lowest level and take a right at the first intersection; she spawns in that room along with two smugglers, and the courier is indeed a placeholder in the daytime.

    RE: I thought Burning Rapier...
    # Feb 27 2001 at 12:39 PM Rating: Default
    Of course this is a much better weapon...the Burning Rapier quest can be done by a 30ish rogue. Unless you can get 30 or so 50+ people, you cannot kill the General. While he's by far the easiest of the Epic final mobs (disregarding the Shaman guy in CoM, if you know the trick :)), he's still on hell of a tough fight.

    There is no disagreement. Anyone who tells you differently is wrong, plain and simple.

    The Ishva robe is the common drop, and the Kedge robe is the rare drop of the Coercer (lvl 55 DE NPC) who spawns in the cabin in Kith every night.

    The Ragebringer is rumored at the moment to be cursed. Once again Safehouse ( has the most current information. At this point it is thought possible that the Ragebringer is not neccesarily THE uber weapon, perhaps just an intermediate step. I know, I know, it's a kick-*** weapon but there seems to be more to the story line than has been revealed so far.

    There are two relevent posts so far: one started by Vaslin (, the second started by Timeless Seer ( Those posts outline the reasons behind this line of thought better than I could explain here.

    RE: Hmmm...
    # Sep 26 2000 at 3:15 PM Rating: Decent
    From what I've heard batted about and guessed at, the monk weapons are race-specific (ie one weapon for humans, one for iksar). And the warrior weapons are two halves of the big two-handed warrior weapon. Pretty sure rogues only get the one. Looking at the stats on Ragebringer, tho, that's just fine by me ;-)

    The Idea behind the rumor, is that pickpocketing the specific DE's in neriak, warrants the first person to PP them the notes. At this time what I understand is that the DE's do NOT despawn and respawn, and so, they would have to be slain to have them respawn for another rogue to come PP them. And since the idea behind these particle weapon quests is to remove the label of "everCAMP", the mobs with the notes should be uber mobs. Meaning either extremely magic resistant, or completely resistant to magics. Meaning that the particle weapon can only be done once per server.
    RE: Hmmm...
    # Mar 31 2001 at 9:36 PM Rating: Decent
    I have seen many of these as well as the other particle weapons, on my server. There is no doubt that whoever is capable of getting through these difficult quests will be able to get their particle weapon with no regard to however many others may have them on their servers

    not neccesarily, when the servers come down, all the mobs come down with them, so that each time the servers come back up, the quest could be done again..but I bet that verant has/will put in a code that will respawn the item on the mob after it has been stolen.

    but the warrior ones are pretty unique, as they combine together to form ONE weapon(the uber weapon), you can also split them to duel-wield
    Cash Sink?
    # Sep 25 2000 at 10:48 PM Rating: Default
    Umm...if I understand this quest correctly...its looks like one huge Money sink. Look at all those robes and weapons you need. Also...I though Verant doesn't want us camping things? how else are we suppose to try to do this quest with. Alot of those items are rather Rare and no drop, and items that no one is realy going to let some Rogue use on his quest unless thier a uber guild. WTG Verant...another bad quest. Nice weapon though.
    Not a cash sink...
    # Sep 30 2000 at 12:46 AM Rating: Default
    As I understand it there really isn't the need to buy or collect the items for Vilnius, therefore the only cash you'll need to do it is the 100p. This quest actually rocks in it's use of the rogue abilities.

    # Oct 23 2000 at 6:47 AM Rating: Default
    You'll still need the Robes. The Cazak Quill is necessary to finish. I've read that the General MAY rarely drop it, but if he doesn't you will need the robes. The Good thing is that 2 of the robes can be obtained at the DE camp in Kithicor.
