You say, 'hail Noble Helssen'

Noble Helssen says 'You obviously have no idea where you have trespassed so I will generously allow you to live. I suggest you leave immediately before my generosity runs out however......Unless, you're looking for work.

You say, 'I am looking for work'

Noble Helssen says 'Well, you might do. Out in the deepest scar, known as the Wakening Land we have deployed several Mercenaries to harass the local annoying population. They are in need of constant supplies so we hire those we can trust to deliver those supplies to the Mercenaries wandering out in the field. Are you interested Ogre?

You say, 'I am interested'

Noble Helssen says 'Very well. Take this pack of supplies to any of the Mercenaries you come across in the field. They will pay you upon delivery. Return here for more supplies to deliver when you are ready.

He gives you Field Supplies.

You get some cash and a faction adjustment for delivering the Field Supplies.

Just tried this out with EW Mercs. Works too! This makes a nice round trip to EW with the other supply run quest quest. Theres a group of 3 or 4 mercs by the jail on North shore of EW.

How much cash?

different factions?

Ok 1st of all i am not sure what the difference is between the Kromrif and the Kromzek.. for the most part all the giants i c comming from the WW zone are all dubious and lowere lv, then from the bank, and surounding area, they regard me as an ally. With a few exeptions Dlammaz Stormslayer, Fjokar Frozenshard and King Tormax's private gaurds Vkjen Thunderslayer and the other, i forgot his name, all Scowl at me ready to attack. So is there 3 factions in Kael, or is it somthing else?

There there are three and the three factions are The Kromrif, The Kromzek, and King Tormax.
the way i do it....

There is a barbarian mercenary in kael that you can turn the supplies into. On the way to WL from noble helssen there is that long path leading from the bank with giants stationed on little platforms on the left and right. In the first little platform on the right that you pass coming from the bank is where he spawns. Turn the suplies into him, and he will despawn (respawn is 30 minutes). There are 3 more stationary mercinaries in WL that are easy to get to. Leaving Kael into WL turn right and follow the zone wall. You will soon hit a corner where the wall of kael ends, continue on and you will pass all the static spawned giants, a little further and you will see 3 trolls. They are mercinaries which you can turn in the supplies to, which despawns them (respawn 30 minutes also). note: there is a chance that when the mercs despawn a PH will spawn in their place, which is a captain which you cant turn the supplies into, the mercs are much more common than the captain though.

Pathing bug

Did anyone else have enormous problems with path-bugged mercenaries stuck somewhere in the geonid caves?
I did the quest twice really quickly, tracking down a human and ogre mercenary wandering in the field southeast of the PoG gate, but on the third try, my track led me to the geonid caves, where I found two tier'dal, a troll, another ogre, and two human mercenaries all tracking as if they were in the geonid caves. I searched the caves thoroughly, recognizing that this was an exercise in futility (I wouldn't be able to hand in the supplies even if I could find a mercenary that was actually path-bugged into the caves proper) and was unable to get any sight of them, so I can only presume that the mercenaries are on top of the caves or under the world. With a second attempt some hours later, I had the same results -- and apparently the two spawns I opened up with my first two attempts joined their brethren in the ethers of the geonid caves.
Anyone have any relief method for this former giant killer? BTW just for the record, a bard with dubious kromzek faction (thanks SA for a 2 death 7/6 and ToV raid last night) can get this quest by first singing the faction song to the noble then sneaking behind him...sneaking alone didn't do it somehow, and neither did just singing the song (and yeah, that should be impossible and so on...but that's seriously how it was for me). Good luck and long live the big folk!

I am trying to kill these vermin, not supply them. But yes, I did find a Troll was tracked in the Geonid caves and was either below the world or above it.

I had the same problem in the past with HG's in EK, so I just go about my business, grumbling to myself over lost tracking time. No known solution other than the ignored /bugreports or asking for GM intervention.

I have done this quest about 25 times already and I can still do it with no problem. Amiably to Zek but still scowling to the other guys. Taking forever! Anyway, this quest is 10 times easier than killing dwarfs for heads and turning them in. PLus, most folks know about the Noble Hensen quest and usually don't kill him. ;)

How big is the faction hit? is it worth spending a night getting faction? should i bring a tracker for the mercenaries?
Keeping Dwarf and Giant faction
# Nov 15 2001 at 9:59 PM Rating: Decent
This quest allows me to keep my Coldain faction.
After Killing Gaurdians in Skyshrine for gaurdian armor, I had noticed my faction for Kromzek could not get any better. After visiting Kael half the giants were ally the other half were threatning, with a invisibitity you can go straight to room where Noble Helssen is and drop invis, none of the Mobs in this building should be KOS if you have been hunting in Skyshrine. Hail Helssen and do the quest.

Also while you in this building Hail the guy next to Noble for a easy quest for Bone Shoulders.
This involves giving note to a giant in next room and then a run to gnome pirates and a run back to Kael.
No Tormax

I just did this quest tonight and got no Tormax faction at all. Oh well, back to dorf heads I guess.

how much cash is given for the reward?
# Aug 25 2001 at 6:00 PM Rating: Default
I know this guy is Kromzek faction, and currently my Kromzek faction is dubious. What does it have to be before he will give me the quest?

has to be at least indifferent.

there is a log parse filer utility that will let you see exactly how you change your faction, but as far as how much you start out with, that i do not know
Checking for KoS to quest guy.

Further info for those interested.

Noble Helsen is KromZEK faction. all the guy sin his house are KromZEK as well... when you drop invis in there you are safe as long as you are not KoS to them.. It is fairly close to zone so invis yourself run in target him.... run back to zone... uninvis and hit your consider key.... if your not KoS reinvis back up run in and try the quest.

I did the quest a few times tonight...and it still works fine...Noble Hellesen or whatever his name is, is still alive and well )
Sucks???? No

This is simple and fast for faction. It's not meant as a long involved quest for experience and items.
#Anonymous, Posted: May 24 2001 at 10:13 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) well its seems the qeast suks dont yall agree
#Anonymous, Posted: May 16 2001 at 1:43 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Wenglawks and Noble Hellsen have been removed from the game. I guess Verant is trying to make giant faction harder to get.
RE: They gone
# Sep 15 2001 at 6:33 PM Rating: Default
they haven't vanished ;) i saw them last night - place gets raided quite often so keep looking for them, they're in a house somewhere.
# May 15 2001 at 7:47 PM Rating: Default
What faction is this Noble on, Kromzek or Kromrif? I am considered and ally by Kromzek, but looked at "threateningly" by Kromrif. I want to do this and any other decent quests to raise Kromrif without lowering Coldain faction. Does anyone know if you can do this while KOS to Kromrif?

I am warmly to the Storm Giants and I am still able to do this quest.

I do not go through the whole dialog with the Noble anymore, I just say "I am interested" and it works for me

I am a halfling it possible to do this quest when your KoS with the mercenaries? possibly try it invis?
# Apr 24 2001 at 8:02 AM Rating: Default
From what I'm reading here it seems you can only do this quest if the giants don't really like you... I currently con dubious to the Noble, but sneaking behind him and hailing him got me the quest. As long as the mercenaries aren't too hard to find it's an easier way to raise Tomax faction than the coldain heads, or tossing away 50pp. Disappointing that I may not receive the quest after I'm too well liked though.
Does the Noble give another quest after he will no longer give this one?

Mercenaries wander around in between Kael and the PoG lake usually, although i've found them more east then the sentient camp sometimes. just hail one and the mercenary says something like "this better be good <your race here>, you are scaring my...uh customers away" just hand the pack to the mercenary and it depops. NOTE the only reward i got from this quest was faction, not cash or anything like its stated here. kromzec, kromrif, king tormax all go up, and claws of veshaan go down. was a pretty big faction hit too.
