You say, 'What greaves?'

Sarth Scarscale says 'Do you know the beasts that call themselves sarnaks? One such beast who calls itself Zorash attacked an envoy of merchants who were to deliver a pair of special boots to me. It taunts us by wearing them as a trophy. Bring them back and the skull of Grachnist, his goblin ally. Return them to me along with a star ruby and your banded greaves, and I shall craft you an excellent pair of greaves.'

Sarth speaks of Zorash, a named Sarnak in The Overthere fort. He's an uncommon spawn and the boots are an uncommon drop.

Likewise for Grachnist the Destroyer, a named goblin in the Warsliks Woods.

Helping my guildy, lvl 18 skaley Sk get his DS gear. Got the big Z to spawn twice today in the first 2 waves of re spawn so we where realy wrapped. But to our dismay, no boots both times. my theory is you've gota totaly wipe out spawn sight and have no standing mobs before he'll spawn. thats what it seemed like anyway.

I took my 30th level SK and my 52nd level Iksar shaman and camped the SE tower in OT for 7 consecutive evenings, a good 40 hours of camping. During that time my SK went from 30th-37th level, I got 5 (count them, 5!) Earrings of Station, more crap Sarnak drops than I can cound, and I got Zorash to spawn 3 (count them, 3!, lol) times.

Since the boots are a rare drop, I figure I have to spawn him maybe 20 times, or about 7 times longer than I already have (or almost 300 hours).

It isn't worth it. I already have better legs.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I'll be wearing my earrings long after I would have stopped wearing the legs. And I don't believe every quest should be doable by every person. And I do have a lot of respect for anyone who has the patience to finish this quest.

But the previous anonymous poster is right. Do this quest because you want to, not because you want the legs.

This armor sucks anways, get some Ry'Gor, its cheap and easy to get. I hate how all these iksars ***** about getting screwed over by verant. I think that us Iksars got it better. Regen, AC bonus. Ok, are faction may suck and we can only wear chain mail but u got regen and good stats. Forget about these quests, only do them if u wanna just show off ur greaves or if ur really bored, otherwise get something better! The only complaint i have with Verant about iksars is letting other races do r quests. I saw two human monks walking around with Whistling Fists which is supposed to be a iksar quest, the monks were from ED and The Awakened but still, it pissed me off. And i hear that other races can do the Greenmist quest. These quests should be iksar only because we got @#%^y faction and they are just suposed to be iksar quests, besides theres quests for the other classes they can do without working on faction... So basically stop whineing, ur an insult to all the Iksars. O, i better leave some info abouty the quest to i guess. Zorash spawns in OT at sarnak forts, Grach in WW at gobbo fort(probally can get some help from highbee campin him), Banded Legs are crafted by blacksmiths and Gem is bought(i think u can buy by the gem merch by the bank).

Human monks and Whistling Fists: You think they didn't have to do a Hell of a lot of faction work to get those? Killing greenies for faction and crappy loot isn't fun when you could go out and get some exp. And whens the last time you saw a Human monk complaining about Iskars getting the Monk epic, which you need the Freeport/Qeynos sashes/headbands for?
Luclin Pic

Ok, last night (12/17/01) I got on EQ for a few mins.. right away someone is asking what Boots of Zorash are for. I ask them to MQ with me, and they said OK, and while on my way to collect Grachnist skull in WW ANOTHER set drops in the tower! So now I need a star ruby and banded greaves..anyway, the real reason I posted, does anyone have a full dreadscale Luclin pic? I am about to have full DS along with my MOSS and Clay Guardian Shield. Just wondering cuz I think scaled mystic looks nice in Luclin, dont know if DS does.

Spawned twice today, one pair of boots
# Sep 15 2001 at 5:11 AM Rating: Decent
Was working on my faction in OT, and set up camp at the ruins north of the ledge. Was there a couple hours last night and never saw this guy, but spent all afternoon there slaughtering sarnak as fast as they'd spawn today. Saw him spawn and boots dropped, asked in zone what they were for and if anyone needed, got no response so I looted em. Spawned again a few hours later, no boots, some druid thought they were for a druid quest... so not sure if maybe most people just don't try this quest, seems pretty unknown.

Both times he spawned in the center ruined building that has the most spawns, not in the same spawn place tho, so can probably spawn in any of the 9 (I believe) spawns at this ruin.

#Anonymous, Posted: Sep 05 2001 at 4:28 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) You know how Sarth Scarscale says that Grachnist is friends with Zorash? well i think maybe they should have made him friends with the undead Jester from Kurns tower. It seems like maybe they hang out and hide?.... together..?) because they NEVER SPAWN !!!

Ok.. i've had him spawn in 3 different places... one is the sarnak tower in the se corner of zone.
- what my group did was kill off the sarnaks for a while... they go from berserker/knights to enthus/knight to partisan/enthus eventually you will get a zorash spawn.

two other places i have seen zorash spawn

the sarnak ruins in the ne corner of zone by the dry lake (with iksar merchant) this is a great spot... recomend 2 druids, enc, cleric, and tanks...
7 - 8 spawns here... very fast respawn rate 3-5 mins... zorash popped here (boots dropped once... i died.. missed loot by about 5 secs..)

the last place i saw zorash was the ruins straight north and a lil bit east of the FM zone ledge...
running by invised from skyfire someone shouted "What r zorash's boots for?" I told them about Iksar Sk quest and he said come loot... sweet... so zorash spawns... but the boots are really rare... took me about a month of off and on camping and looking for him...

good luck all
What ZORASH?

I have a few friends camping in the OVERTHERE, have been for a couple weeks now. They know that I am needing these boots to complete the Dreadscale Greaves Quest. I am camping in the WW, and just a quick run to the overthere if he should happen to spawn. In the two weeks scince I started this quest (14 RL days) I have been online checking for this Zorash fella.... I have Logged 4 outta 14 RL days checking him, and he has spawned only ONCE, and guess what NO BOOTS....
I see Many an Iksar out there wearin the Dreadcale Breastplate, but have yet to see one wearin the Greaves..........Seems like this quest is a bit difficult for a mid level armor!

When these quest were first implemented last year I spent 3 weeks almost solid in the Overthere. Lvled my butt off from 39 to 41 or 42. I killed the guy about 60 times before the boots dropped. I also looted 2 earings of station and gave another one away before the boots dropped. Had a guy from the other side of the zone loot them and then try and give them to me. Needless to say I was a little perturbed at the guy but live and learn. Be prepared to spend a long camp or get very lucky.

These 3 quest's shouldn't be attempted unless you have a good two days to do it. I need boots from Zorash, I have been looking for him for about a week. I have an easier time going to RM and ganking hg. I won't be wearing legs anytime soon

Zorash spawn
# Jul 27 2001 at 11:52 AM Rating: Default
zorash seems to be a very rare spawn and seems to never drop the boots. I urge all fellow hatchlings of Cazic to come forth and post on the everquest message forums so that we may actually have a shot at wearing these greaves.

Weeks
# Jul 23 2001 at 2:17 PM Rating: Decent
I have been camping this guy for the last 2 weeks. I have been able to get him to spawn up to 2-3 times a night. (I am only online for about 6 hours three times a week.) To do it I have just had to wipe out the entire ruins over and over. I have had so many sarnak talberts drop that i just started letting them rot. I have been keeping the braids to work back up my OT faction and to get my sledge mallet, but I have never seen him drop anything but a few gold.
I would say in the last 2 weeks i have killed about 15 or so Zorash.
I understand that quests are meant to be a bit of work, but come on.
It only took me about 6 times to wipe out the goblin fort to get grachnist to drop his head and he spawned each time the fort respawned.
For the amount of work I have put into this quest you would think that these greaves would be awsome, but they are not. Rygor is better and so are many other types of legs.
If DS is supposed to be close to the DF armor that every other SK can wear but us, then why is the DF armor not that hard?
Also, why is there the Sent armor for the non iksar races to upgrade from there DF armor and nothing for us?
Nice of Verent to put out the iksar, penalize them for our 3 hp regen by requiring more xp, and limiting the armor we can wear.

Oh well. I will pass the soap box off to some one else.

Hey, I camped him last night from 7 pm to 2 am and got him to spawn 5 times. And one of them actually dropped something. Words of Refuge. Whoopee.

i'm not sure what you guys are whining about... i am level 21, and did this quest in one night. Start to finish. Took like 4 hours, and then i took another hour to do the bracer quest. I got two lvl 45's who were in the zone to come over and put down Zorash when i saw him pop. He had the boots. Once i had these i said, hmm i guess i should go check in on grachy. I had a lvl 47 necro clear the whole gob fort like 5 times, and on the 6th grach the head dropped. OK OK so i had a little help, but still i didnt know these people, i just asked for help. Its not very hard to do. ^.^ good luck with this everybody, now im off to get my helm!!
RE: dude
# Sep 23 2001 at 9:20 PM Rating: Default
Look Dud, what everyone is complaining about is the rarity of the boots drop. Verant does this so many times with other quests also. I am weary of this kind of stupidity. A rare drop off a mob you kill over and over is not entertaining, or challenging, it is just stupid. You were lucky you got the boots to drop the first time.
Listen
# Apr 23 2001 at 10:46 PM Rating: Default
Listen... some of you have gotten them after bustin yer humps for who knows how long killing Zorash over and over.. and some of you got lucky and it didn't take so many kills or that much time... while the rest of us have never even seen these boots.. if you all think that this quest is unfairly designed then tell Verant i know i am going to give them an earfull. Just type "/feedback" while playing and tell them all about how they are severly jipping Iksar SKs in Norrath and while you're at it, help all of the hardworking Shadow Knights of Norrath by telling them that Harm Touch should be unresistable :)

thank you

I have been camping Zorash for a week now and still haven't seen him. I have had my guild over in OT with me with druids and rangers to try and track him by the 2 spots that im not at at the time. I have activated the quest several times while they stay in OT just in case. But alas to no avail. I have the skull, the banded greaves and the gems needed, but not the boots. I have been looking for him at the 3 sarnak ruins: the single building near the iksar vendor and the mud pit, the tower along the road to the FM zone, and the 2/3 building ruins near the FM ledge. Oh well.
RE: getting tired
# Apr 11 2001 at 1:41 AM Rating: Default
You have to clear out all 3 ruins there past the FM ledge. I have had him spawn back to back by killing all sarnaks in all 3 buildings. Try this...it works. Getting the boots to drop is another story altogether. I have been camping him for 3 weeks now and he never drops them. Good luck to you.
Done
# Mar 19 2001 at 9:22 AM Rating: Decent
Yes got them finally after 2 days camping. The 8:th zorash spawned dropped them. Bring a good druid that can harmonize to break the camp. Chanter is also very useful since they Pop very fast. It is non stop pulling if yuo want to avoid multiple spawns and quite fun. Partisans and enthusiast can gate back to the ruins and heal up and bring more sarnaks, so stun them right before gate attempt. The exp is good if you do this a bit before 40, say around 35. All in my team lvled quick.
Grachnist who spawns in gob vilage in WW is often hunted by high levels that seek rare drop. Ask them for help or hunt him yourself with a group. His head is also kind of rare but not like the boots. Banded leggings and banded greaves is the same thing (phew) I was a little bit worried by that.

All in all have patience with the zorash camp. He will drop them. And oh sweet cazic-thule do I look good in my dreadscale greaves )

I just happened to check the ruins and tower everytime I go to Overthere or whenever I log in. Well ZORASH happened to be in the ruins area this particular time I checked. I was not able to take him myself so I seeked help from a VERY high level necro (Thanks, you know you are). We killed him and he had the boots. Very heavy though. 10.5 stones.
