Drixiv Arcut says 'Our legs move us forward. If we move with hesitance we will surely fall and leave our charge exposed. Before you can wear the greaves, you must learn from the Brood of Kotiz. For if they did not wield their powers over the dead with confidence, their life forces would be sucked from them instantly, leaving them empty husks. Take this note to the Harbinger and listen to his instructions.

Harbinger Glosk snatches the note out of your hands, obviously irritated. After reading a few lines, he glances up at you, his brow furrowed, then looks down again to continue reading. When he's finished, he hands the note back to you and takes a deep breath, shuddering slightly. He then says, 'Xydoz. Take this to Xydoz. He will test you.' The Harbinger watches you carefully as you leave.

Master Xydoz snatches the paper from your hand and hisses in anger. Without even looking at the paper he growls, 'WHAT?! What is this tra...' He stares down at the paper, mouth hanging open wide in disbelief. He finally continues, saying, 'Very well, then. If you wish to know confidence I have a task for you. Our hated enemies, the sarnak, have a tome we have sought to return to our libraries for centuries. At this point, we believe it to be found in a small fortress they maintain near the Great Lake. One of their scholars will most likely have it on their person. Bring it to me along with two star rubies.'

Bring him two Star Rubies and an Iron Bound Tome from Advisor Sh'Orok in the Lake of Ill Omen fortress for your reward.

The book that gives the clue to the initial keyword is Brother's Fallen sold by War Historian Kobl in East Cabilis.

Quote:
You say, 'Hail, Drixiv Arcut'

Drixiv Arcut sighs heavily and after a long while says, 'Leave us, Iksar. Leave us to our eternal damnation.'

You say, 'curse'

Drixiv Arcut twists his face into a frown and says, 'You read what's written, Iksar. It's clear enough so we won't bother to explain the details. We can only stand our guard and hope for [redemption].'

You say, 'redemption'

Drixiv Arcut grits his teeth and snaps, 'It's very simple, ______! We are fallen! We seek redemption! We guard our 'brothers' here among the Howling Stones until we are relieved. Whether that will ever happen, we do not know. We can only hope that by providing the great warriors of the legion with our [ancient armor], we will earn salvation.'

You say, 'ancient armor'

Drixiv Arcut says 'You wish the armor of our ancestors? The armor donned by the Guard whose duty was to protect the Chosen? A warrior relies not on strength alone, but many virtues. If a warrior learns to balance each virtue, then he may be fit to guard the Chosen. Each piece of armor reflects a [virtue], and each virtue must be learned before the armor is given.'

You say, 'virtue'

Drixiv Arcut says 'The virtues symbolized by the armor I keep are confidence and righteousness. The [boots], [greaves], [gauntlets], and [bracers]. Bring me proof that you have mastered these virtues as well as a piece of Banded armor of the type you desire and the appropriate armor shall be yours, ______. If you wish the other pieces you must speak to my brother.'

You say, 'greaves'

Drixiv Arcut says 'Our legs move us forward. If we move with hesitance we will surely fall and leave our charge exposed. Before you can wear the greaves, you must learn from the Brood of Kotiz. For if they did not wield their powers over the dead with confidence, their life forces would be sucked from them instantly, leaving them empty husks. Take this note to the Harbinger and listen to his instructions.'

You receive Illegible Note: Greaves.

You also can't just hail them, target them and say "What ancient armor" to get a response

who the heck thought it was a lvl 25 quest anyways
#Anonymous, Posted: Oct 09 2001 at 4:38 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) lol, some guy actually paid 800pp for the tome and another guy thinks it is worth 2k? Damn, i've done the quest 4 times, just sellin the pants each time, and never paid even a copper piece for the tome. If i had the money to throw around like that, i'd at least get something good for my 800pp. You could have just bought the damn pants for that much.

Well, i found out that this Chancellor Di zok guy is like a level 40 shammy sarnak. I usually dont take sarnaks very seriously, i mean the beak mug, the damn pigeon face, but this Chansellor, I wont be able to kick his *** until level 40 sumthin. I found a couple of people who camp him and dont need the damned tome thing. PLEASE anyone who can get me the tome im willing to pay!! Chakansis Ripjaw 31 lvl war Terris Thule Server send tells!
DONT PAY MORE THEN 150pp for...
# Sep 03 2001 at 9:24 AM Rating: Default
Dont pay anymore then then 150pp for the ironbund tomb. The tome is a 1h blunt that sucks, it a effect on it thats nice BUT its not a right click its a proc so its even worse, PLUS its 12lbs very heavy. Most people will just want you to take it off their hands. I got min for 100pp
Completed!

As my 52nd druid I found some difficulty soloing the sarnak who dropped the Iron Bound Tome as he broke root a few times and his pet didn't behave. After he parished I transfered the book to my iksar warrior and handed it in with the gems, taking my reference to OT and handing that in with the banded armor. As my warrior I did NOT have any empty inventory slots when handing in the reference and banded armor. (This goes for all pieces of trooperscale quest, not required to have an empty inventory slot cause I did the whole suit myself. find my information in the other quests regarding other pieces)
how too do this quest
# Aug 22 2001 at 5:03 AM Rating: Default
that guys with the tome is just like every sarnak . say : what <part you want> to the arcuts guys at the gorge entrance . if it doesnt work get close too the other 1 target him and try again and so on . Then go to cabilis give the note too harbringer in the top of the necro tower . go to the guy he tells you . bring the tome and 2 star rubies which can be bought in the monk guild for 86pp . and hand them in .

You must read what the arcuts say if you give the note too the wrong person you will have too walk again .
Good luck with the quest

the tome drops off the advisor sh'orok or whatever. its pretty nice so you might have trouble getting it for a low price. and the advisor is a rare spawn with PHs. i was lucky to get one from a great friend of mine in my guild. good luck with the quest all.

# Jul 08 2001 at 10:30 PM Rating: Decent
pretty nice? cmon this tomb is a 1hb, something like 7/30 and it has an effect of cancel magic, cmon this bites for a weapon! its worth no more then 100plat just for the fact that its for the trooperscale greaves quest.
Skinny on this one
# Jun 25 2001 at 4:37 AM Rating: Default
Ok go to OT talk to the Arcuts and find out which one has the right note to do this you say /say what virtues. trust me on the virtues it cuts strait to the heart and gives a list of the armors that the targeted Arcut has on him. (note targeted, pls dont attack though) anyhow...
The Arcut with the greeves note will hand it to you, take it to cabilis and give it to Harbinger Glosk ( necro guild house top floor)
Harbinger reads note and gives it back. Take the note now down one floor and give it to Master Xydoz he gives the item needed list to you: Iron bound tome and 2 star rubies. Now turn in your items ( ENSURE THAT YOU HAVE A MAIN INVENTORY SLOT OPEN) he gives you a scroll that goes to the Arcut that started the quest. Now this is the important part, you must have a set of banded leggs to turn in with the scroll (AND AN OPEN MAIN INVENTORY SLOT).

Star rubies can be purchased at the vendor in the jewelers hut right from the Bank ent in cabilis. Or you can harvest them in BW, which is a fairly common drop there. Around 80pp per depending on your cha.

Iron bound tome can be found on a guy in the Chancellors room in LOIO. The guy is easy to spot with a garish red tunic. He spawns near where the Chancellor spawns but they are not on the same spawn table (ie they can be up at same time) Ok now here is the easy part for low level iksar warriors, THE CHANCELLOR IS CAMPED BY HIGH LEVEL PEOPLE THAT MOST LIKELY DONT WANT THE IRON BOUND TOME. Make an offer that fits your current budget, if you are poor dont beg offer to pay and most likely they will cut you some slack. Also explain that its for an armor quest, if someone told me they just wanted it I would tell them to go float in the lake, but if they said they were doing a quest I would hook em up. Anyone can buy an item but I like to see em working for them.

Good luck I hope this helps and remember nobody likes a begger. /boo on beggers

QUEST: Careful

Just fyi, seeing as it stats nowhere on this crap-*** list of comments, I'll warn anyone who's going to do this now......when you hand in the tome and rubies, don't be a moron like me and hand that reference to Glosk, it goes back to Drivix Arcut.

I have recently obtained an iron bound tome and the two star rubies and am wondering what to do now. This will be my first trooper scale quest and i"m wondering weather I have to go to the overthere to get the note, than come back and give it to these guys in cabilis. or can I just give the tome and rubies to the guy in cabilis and than go to OT once? Thanx

No you do not need any notes for the Trooper Quests... I was lazy an have done the Gaunts and the Helm... omw to doing the Greeves (some how Drixiv wasn't there at the time I got there) but I've succeded by simply obtaining each piece and handing them in with the gems then rushing out to OT with the referance an piece of banded. No probs, no worries. Good Luck and save yer self an extra trip to and from OT *shudder*

I cannot answer for certain if you can do the quest without a note, but with an item like to tomb....I would not risk it. I have done all of them except the greaves and BP. I went to OT, got all 8 notes, and turned them in in the order I did the quests. You can get the items and hold them, most are no drop, just turn in a note first or you might not trigger the NPC to be ready.

I might be wrong, but i am poor and do these things one step at a time.

bought the tome for 800pp on Tholuxe Paells
The Tome
# Jan 04 2001 at 5:37 PM Rating: Default
It is called an Iron Bound Tome and it is not a no drop item, so you can auction and by the silly thing, its funny cause it can be used and a 1hb weapon, I got a kick outta running around with it.Equip it and a mace and people will bug you for SoW. I had to turn the one I bought in for my greaves, but Im gonna buy me another one just for kicks.Good Luck on your quest, the greaves are cool. Krahs Rellik-TZ
How much?
# Jan 24 2001 at 9:03 PM Rating: Default
I'd love to earn these Greaves, but it's much too difficult a room for those of us under level 30.

I don't see how the tome would be of any value to anyone besides Iksar Warriors (other than the previous poster who wields it 'just for kicks').

If it's worthless to others, how much should I offer to buy one? I figure 20pp should make both parties happy, but am I way off? They can hold out for hundreds of plat, but with only 1 race/class combo that wants it, the demand should be very low.

How much have people paid, and is it worth it?

Thanks

Well, dont know about you, I just gave one for free to a lvl 14 iksar warrior....
It doesn't hurt to be nice , once in a while... :)

Ahhhh! I did not know that it had nice stats and the cancel magic effect. I thought it was simply a token item to take back to the quest originator.

Looks like I'll have to earn it the hard way in a few more levels. ;)

Thanks for the info!

Well actually the cancel magic effect is fairly useless. Its a proc that goes off on the weilder from what I hear. So its really quite useless.
RE: Thanks
# May 28 2001 at 11:25 PM Rating: Decent
The cancel magic effect may seem useles to you at first glance, but would be quite benificial to a warrior or monk, it acts the same as pumice for canceling magical effects like root and snare and dots. Unfortunately for a monk to use this he would have to have a reduction bag, as it wieghs 12 stones, you dont have to fight with it in your hand all the time, just untill you need a debuff. I got one off the advisor tonight and decided to look it up. It said its triggered, I can't test it as I am a halfling, but would be interested to know if its right click or random, if its right click, its worth every bit of 2k plat.
just my 2 cp
RE: Thanks
# Jan 23 2002 at 6:15 AM Rating: Good
It's a Proc, so in fact it really IS useless -- I think the intent was that it's actually a Cursed item because it strips your own buffs away at random.
Pardon me, here is the Advior?
