Drixiv Arcut says 'The bracers of our ancestors embody righteousness. When we strike, and our forearms are soaked in the blood of our enemies, our purpose must be pure. Else that blood will burn our souls and anger that which we live for. Go and find the Archduke in Cabilis and give him my note. He will teach you of righteousness. For if our chosen did not know righteousness, our people would not be. Go!

You receive Illegible Note: Bracer. Hand it to Arch Duke Xog, a Shadow Knight Guildmaster in East Cabilis.

Arch Duke Xog takes the note and glances at it briefly then lets out a heavy sigh and stares out over the city for several minutes. Finally he says quietly, 'Several months ago we lost contact with one of our crusaders. His name is, or was, Geanik. The last we heard from him he was furthering our cause against the loathsome Goblins that reside in Warsliks Wood. Just recently we were visited by a [strange Iksar].

You say, 'what strange iksar'

Arch Duke Xog says 'Yes, he was dressed in rags and hadn't eaten in days. He rambled on about seemingly nothing, obviously he had lost his mind at some point. The guards brought him in because he told them he had valuable information concerning a captured Crusader. According to the mad man, our missing knight was captured by a group of cultists that follow a false god. The cultists intend on converting him apparently. Your [test] will concern Geanik.

You say, 'what test'

Arch Duke Xog says 'Learning Righteousness is learning to listen to one's own heart. At all times our Lord of Fear speaks to us. Our heart is through which he speaks. If we are pure in action and undistracted in mind we can hear the very words of our Father. Your test will be to find our lost Crusader. When you find him you must listen, and act based on what you hear. If your actions are Righteous, I will give you my reference. Bring me proof of your action and two sapphires.

Kill an Iksar prisoner in Crypt of Dalnir and loot Traitor's Heart. Bring the heart along with 2 Sapphire to Arch Duke Xog and he gives you a Reference.

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

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, 'bracers'

Drixiv Arcut says 'The bracers of our ancestors embody righteousness. When we strike, and our forearms are soaked in the blood of our enemies, our purpose must be pure. Else that blood will burn our souls and anger that which we live for. Go and find the Archduke in Cabilis and give him my note. He will teach you of righteousness. For if our chosen did not know righteousness, our people would not be. Go!'

You receive Illegible Note: Bracer.

Darn, that was the easiest quest ever. The iksar prisoner is an easy mob. His harm touch might hurt if you don't have the HP. I just dropped down to second floor , sneeeked over to him, then unleashed a vicious assualt with my fists on him. He died in about 90 seconds. The gems are pricy =/ but worth the bracer.

where do i find the heart
# Aug 27 2001 at 2:51 AM Rating: Decent
I grabbed a few guildmates to help me get into Dalnir's Crypt. 59 paly, 55 monk, 51 warrior, and myself 30 warrior (iksar) went through dalnirs to an iksar prisoner. He has roughly 750hp, also has a pet so he may be a shadowknight. Quickly killed him and looted his heart "Traitor's Heart." After getting gems, handing in for the reference, and going to arcut brothers with reference and banded mail, I received my Trooperscale Bracers. I handed in 1 reference with 2 banded bracers 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)

Of course he's a shadow knight, he's a crusader.
Getting to Drixiv Arcut
# Aug 14 2001 at 11:55 AM Rating: Default
Figured out how to get to the top of the platform/temple so that you can do the quest. Helped an Iksar do this. First you need levitation, have some one cast it on you or have a mage give you a levitation ring. YOU need to go the the highest point along the southern wall, about neg 1100(east/west). In the first person view, you must be looking slightly upwards or you will NOT make it, if you look down at all, you will drop faster.
Now run to the top of the platform. Made it on my first try.

An ancient curse
# Jul 19 2001 at 10:01 AM Rating: Good
the first thing you should say to the arcut brother is "what curse" this will start you of at the begining of the quest. The place where you find this information is in a book called "the brother" i think its sold by the war historian in the warrior guild in Cabilis. The general point is these two where chosen to protect the Chosen whoever that is. They where trained bye "angels of fear" as the text say but their pride got the better of them and they failed. because of this they where cursed to watch over the scorpiki until they are releived of duty.

no hard info i know, but i am one of those weird ppl that like to actualy know why he is getting a reward and what is the history behind a quest.

I have never really actually hailed these two for the quests. I have the helm and gauntlets and i usually just walk up and ask about the particular item, ie. (What trooper scale helm, what trooper scale gauntlets,) this has always given me the note needed. True doesn't tell me where to take it but that is why i read these. Hope this helps anyone trying to do quests as they are very nice items. Will hopefully have all mine in a few weeks. Good Luck and happy hunting.

The Arcuts are skorpikis, and they are not in the evil city. They also are not on the same faction as the other skorpikis (which you will be KOS with), they are on Legion of Cabilis faction, so if you are OK in Cabilis, you'll be fine with these NPCs.

The Arcuts can be found near the center of the zone, at the entrance to the chasm that has the skorpikis at the bottom.

frik dude,
What do you say to drixiv arcut to get him to tell you about the trooper armor? I cant remember for the life of me.

Where is the iksar prisoner : out of dalnir near the port (post feb 21) or in the 2nd floor of dalnir (post dec 2)?
# Jul 04 2001 at 12:24 PM Rating: Default
The poster actually said near the port out of Dalnir, which is on the second floor of Dalnir. Hope this helped a bit
my theory
# Apr 20 2001 at 9:16 AM Rating: Default
I think what was said in a previous response is probably the answer. Some people get two bracers because someone else screwed up the quest and turned in a note without the bracer. You are just taking advantage of someone else's misfortune but what the hey =), I'm sure it's worth trying on the off chance you would get two. Note that this won't work with any of the other pieces because they are LORE items. Bracers aren't lore because that allows you to get two of them.
just got x2 bracers on Tholuxe Paells Server
# Feb 21 2001 at 11:36 AM Rating: Default
just did it last night, got two bracers after giving him 2 banded bracers and the ref. each bracer has the nice stats so this is a good quest to do early

the heart comes from an iksar prisoner that you can find on your way out of dalnir near the port. i he is near level 29 but probably lower, didnt notice him being hard but i had 2 30+ monks, a 37 warrior, a druid and myself (29 war at the time).

the saphires cost my shaman friend 99pp each with his cha doll and cha spell and he has high cha already so these aint cheap. 110pp for cha 55

i made sure i had PLENTY of room in my inventory for the bracers to drop in, just check over everything before you hit the give button. you should be giving vox and drivix 3 items each.

Getting TWO bracers back at once.
# Feb 10 2001 at 5:53 PM Rating: Default
Here is the low down on the two bracers. I handed in the note in the first slot - then two bracers in the other slots on the Karana server and I got back TWO TS bracers. I did clear out TWO open spots in my inventory. NOT in my backpack, but in my open inventory and I got TWO bracers.

It does work.

I just did this quest and used the notes from this and they are
infact wrong at least on the Luclin server. I gave the bracers
and the reference note in the order as stated. I got one bracer. I had to do the quest twice. Please note that if you do this twice you will need two bracers each time.

Here are the stats on the bracers.
# Dec 07 2000 at 3:26 PM Rating: Default
The stats are AC9 +2dex +4sta +2int the guy you need to kill IS on the 2nd floor of Dalnir neer the teleporter out you dont need to talk to him just kill him and take his heart along with 2 saphires to the archduke located in the very top of the shammie guild.. he will give you his reference. Take this reference and @ banded bracers to Drixiv Arcut. Give them all at the same time in this order 1 banded bracer, 1 banded bracer, and the reference.. and you will receive the bracers. i gave them to him in this order and just got one bracer... Refrence 1 banded bracer 1 banded bracer

Umm, 2 sapphires go to Arch Duke with the Heart.

Then turn in the Reference, and 2 Banded Bracers to Drixiv for 2 Trooper Scaled Bracers
# Dec 02 2000 at 2:49 AM Rating: Default
Geanik is located in Delnir. 2nd floor. he is taged as iksar trader. if you face the portal. do a 180. that is where he spawns. Fyi spawn time is 1 hour. good luck. This quest is easy. just listen to what people who have done this quest have to say and you will have no problems
RE: Sabulle
# Dec 02 2000 at 7:28 PM Rating: Default
Spawn time is not 1 hour.
Previous information is wrong
# Dec 01 2000 at 2:15 AM Rating: Default
You do not get two bracers back if you hand in two banded bracers in with the reference. I tried it, doesn't work. Have to run the quest once for each bracer, same as any other quest armor. And yes, it does say you should get two back. It also says that on any other quest bracer.

i bet people only got one because they only had 1 inventory slot open. quest rewards will not drop into bags but only in open inventory slots.
RE: Previous information is wrong
# Dec 03 2000 at 7:31 PM Rating: Default
I am the original poster on this thread, and I did have my first two inventory slots open. I believe the quests you are referring to are ones that result in containers. Then you must have an open inventory slot.
RE: Previous information is wrong
# Dec 03 2000 at 10:58 AM Rating: Default
Not true...I have done 2 of these quests and both times the rewards dropped into my bags.
RE: Previous information is wrong
# Dec 03 2000 at 11:43 AM Rating: Default
the other choice is maybe someone screwed up the quest and gave everything except the banded bracer and when you give in your stuff and two bracers it completes both quests, giving you two rewards.
RE: Previous information is wrong
# Dec 03 2000 at 11:55 PM Rating: Default
I think what pple are doing wrong is, stacking the 2 gems, if u give him 2 sapphries, 1 heart, 1 bracer, that fills up the 4 available slots.1 item per slot.
RE: Previous information is wrong
# Dec 18 2000 at 5:04 PM Rating: Default
You don't give the sapphires to the scorpiki... you turn them in with the heart to Xog for his reference... then take the reference and the bracer(s) to the brothers... Will only take up 3 slots that way...

On the Bristlebane server he is called the Traitor, not Geanik.

Geanik is an iksar prisoner on the second floor of dalnir close to the exit zone. kill him and get his heart. when taking the note to the brothers in ot make sure to take 2 banded bracers to hand in and you get 2 trooper sacel bracers.
