This HA is gotten from Arbitrator Kelliar in Scorched Woods. He is located in the northwestern part of the zone, northeast of the giant fort. 2426, 1971, -364.

Say have time to request the HA.

Say prepared to enter the HA.

This HA locks at the request.

There are multiple versions of this task where the steps randomize. Instead of seperate entries that show all the different steps in particular tasks, steps will be displayed for all possible versions. Please post other versions not here.



Step #1

  • Destroy the supplies that the sarnak would need should a battle break out. 0/10

    Destroy crates in middle of zone.

    P 1342.7513, 253.9359, -249.9604, 240, 0, 0, 1, Supplies
    P 1687.7128, 592.2667, -285.8044, 240, 0, 0, 1, Supplies
    P 1356.9736, 337.2166, -248.3627, 240, 0, 0, 1, Supplies
    P 1402.3811, 331.8064, -248.3713, 240, 0, 0, 1, Supplies
    P 1041.7101, 276.9830, -247.8799, 240, 0, 0, 1, Supplies
    P 677.6934, 427.9535, -244.2200, 240, 0, 0, 1, Supplies
    P 639.8978, 349.6100, -243.4221, 240, 0, 0, 1, Supplies
    P 394.6921, 291.2386, -244.1180, 240, 0, 0, 1, Supplies

    OR

  • Destroy sokokar eggs 0/8

    These eggs were spread among the zone in room AND in the hallway directly outside the zone in room.

    OR

  • Destroy the eggs of the sokokar that the sarnak rely on in battle. 0/10



    Step #2

  • Acquire some of the sarnak's books, they may have valuable information. 0/8

    All the books are ground or table spawns in the library.
    Look on the tables, benches and on top of the book cases on both the top and downstairs.

    OR

  • Read and memorize as many sarnak battle plans as you can find. 0/10

    The sarnak battle plans (Is that the name of the item?) drop from strategist mobs in the library area.



    Step #3

  • Defeat the sarnak military advisor.

    A royal advisor on the west side or in the Prince's room.



    Step #4

  • Royal Guard Kakator or its PH will spawn

    OR

  • Set explosives to cut some of the support beams and collapse the tunnels that lead out. 0/3


    Click explosives near the support beams in the green tunnels on the map.

    P 985.9929, 150.2317, -232.7829, 240, 0, 0, 1, Explosives
    P 760.7924, 153.8623, -198.5111, 240, 0, 0, 1, Explosives
    P 405.5520, -294.1045, -17.4393, 240, 0, 0, 1, Explosives



    Step #5

  • On your way out, rescue as many prisoners as you can. 0/5

    Kill "a guard" guarding "a prisoner". Not slaves. The prisoners are partially closer to the top and partially down the long windy northwest tunnel (green, split t-bone area if you have Brewall's maps)

    We completed this April 9th, 2021.
    • Took ~3 hours. Probably could do it in 2 if we did it again.
    • Killed 132 mobs (858 Million HPS) - we could maybe have skipped a dozen or two if we tried.
    • Completion XP - Awarded ~1.5% level XP, with the HA bonus of the day.
    • Mobs gave normal XP ~0.1% per mob.
    • 109 beast, 109 paladin, 109 bard (bot account), and 3 mercs.
    • Awarded 235 Sathir Trade Gems - including daily HA bonus.
    • Max hits ~27k. Mobs were mostly levels 106-108.

    There are more than just the three Versions listed above. We had one with:
    • Destroy the supplies that the sarnak would need should a battle break out. 0/10
    • Acquire some of the sarnak's books, they may have valuable information. 0/8
    • Defeat the sarnak military advisor
    • Royal Guard Kakator or its PH will spawn
    • On your way out, rescue as many prisoners as you can

    Things we learned:
    • The books do NOT spawn on the ground. After 3 hours, we found not a single one, and we were looking. All books dropped from Strategists (as others have posted).
    • Prisoners are NOT the same as slaves. The prisoners are partially closer to the top and partially down the long windy tunnel (green, split t-bone area if you have Brewall's maps)
    • The 0/5 Prisoners were NOT optional for us. The other posters said it was - this stumped us for 10 minutes. Bring a tracker - the prisoners are spread all over the place.
    • The Sarnak Military advisor was all the way at the back of the area that used to be the raiding spot in Chardok.
    • The dogs and skeletons see invis. It's hard to skip things. Prepare for a long, slow slog.
    • DO NOT ATTEMPT UNTIL ABOVE LEVEL 105. When we got this previously, just one or two mobs destroyed us. This is one of those HARD HA's that's not scaled well. Even at 109, it required care.

    If you're looking for a hard challenge (and you are above 105), then give it a go. If you're looking for efficiency, go elsewhere.

    When I tried to find them by location, it would have forced me to move into the Scorched woods. There simply wasn't anyplace further north except on the east side, which didn't match the locations 986, 150, -233. I finally had to give up on the quest as I couldn't ever find the location to plant the explosives. Anyone able to help?

    The locations posted in the quest text above are map file coordinates which you need to place into the map file for the zone. Those coordinates are different from /loc coordinates. To convert map file locations to /loc, invert the first two sets of numbers.

    For example,

    P 985.9929, 150.2317, -232.7829, 240, 0, 0, 1, Explosives

    985 is the x coordinate, 150 is the Y coordinate, -232 is the z coordinate on the map file.

    So the /loc would be -150, -985, -232

    Basically head out of the green tunnels. You pass a few supports as you go. The first one opens up the tunnel to the zone out line NW

    I am more story bound, I see the place as aa whole, not by coordinates so, like- the building near the mushroom men In the lower area. Or, in the formal area to the west where all the sarnak are, or the dug out caves in the lower area to the east where the skellies and slaves are, or the ruins in the lower end in the south where the dervishes are. that makes more sense to me.
    Coordinates? I'll pick a direction and hope I am heading the right way.

    Those coordinates are actually map file entries. If entered into the map file for the eok version of chardok, they will show on your in game map.

    "What are the name of these books?" - they don't have a name. These are ground spawns that disappear as soon as they are picked up.
    We had just 4 steps in our quest:
    • Destroy the supplies that the sarnak would need should a battle break out.
    • Acquire some of the sarnak's books, they may have valuable information. 0/8
    • Defeat the sarnak military advisor.
    • Royal Guard Kakator or its PH will spawn

    The task completed after these 4 steps were done, with no mention of the 5th step in the alla page above involving prisoners or guards. You do not have to do these steps in order.

    Got supplies. Map was accurate.
    Then books. Some books were on tables, some on top of bookcases, some on floor.
    Advisor was in Prince's room.
    The column to bomb are on the tunnel up towards where the lost chokidai sits (third column is at him).

    This mission was pretty straighforward until trying to find the proper columns. I accidentally blew one up while I was not in front of it and panicked, but they leave a little room to climb over the rubble once the explosives detonate.

    Also, rogues can easily skate around and pick up the books, rather than killing everything in the way.

    step 1) There are alternate versions of this quest... in the one I ran, the first step was to destroy sokkokar eggs (8). These eggs were spread among the zone in room AND in the hallway directly outside the zone in room.
    step 2) The books were found in the library, all 8 were ground spawns (very rogue friendly /flex)
    step 3) Yes, the mobs name was "A royal advisor" and was found in the Prince's Room when looking at the map
    step 4) had same ^ as above. Killed guards surrounding prisoners and it updated

    There wasn't an emote "a formidable foe" for named spawn, but the named did spawn - Royal Guard Kakator. Named was located in the cubby where Gwizilwerkz Cogswin is located in the static zone
