You say, 'Hail, Tunarean Earthmelder'

Tunarean Earthmelder says 'Hail my friend, unforutnately I am sorry I cannot talk right now. The giants must be dealt with.

You say, 'What giants?'

Tunarean Earthmelder says 'The giants are continuing to put forth efforts to encroach the lands blessed by Tunare. We need an outrider or preserver to aid us in our continued fight.

You say, 'I am a preserver'

Tunarean Earthmelder says 'Noble preserver, you will be needed to combat the priests of the warbringer. Scouts have reported three priests wandering the Wakening Lands in search of a site to build a shrine to their god. Seek them out kill them and bring their heads and those of anyone else involved.'

You need the heads off the following four giants:

1. Priest Grenk - roams in the Wakening Land.
2. Priest Bjek - roams in the Wakening Land.
3. Priest Delar - roams in the Wakening Land.
4. Derakor the Vindicator - found behind the ice wall near Kael's temple. Bring a few friends..

Return the four heads for the Gloves of Earthcrafting.

I just completed this quest today with INDIFFERENT faction. So you can do this with faction as low as "indifferent."

If you want a cool DC'd pet use a Rapticor, just got my last mob I needed Priest Grenk and the Rapticor tore him up. Of course all buffed up. As mentioned below DO NOT go after the SK Unicorn (corruppted unicorn) can't be dire charmed anymore of course. But the Rapticor is a very good replacement.

Good luck all

Unicorn is for Tunare Pally Epic and of the four mobs we had to take down he was bt far the hardest. Not worth killing if not for the particular quest.

If you grinded for Dire Charm you can get these nice gloves easily (solo).

First check to see if any of the 3 WL priests are up. Sometimes all three are up or only one. Usually when most big guilds raid Kael they kill any giant on their way from the WL port to the ZI to Kael and since most of the priests wander near that path they often get ganked just because they are 'named'. (Yes, you can acquire the 3 heads this way, but it's not consistent and that's not very fun is it?) If none are up, check WL 12 (real time) hours later or the next day. Even if one is up then you are good to go.

Go to the newbie zones and buy any cheap 1HB and 1HS with a short delay (preferably a Spintered Club and a Rusty Short Sword) from the merchants.

Port to WL and check track for the 'a unicorn' (ONLY the BLACK version! Black version is an amazing undercon Shadow Knight MOB that casts fear). Dire Charm always works on it. Once DC'd give it the 2 weapons (it will now quad hit). Buff it up with a skin, STR, regen, and SoE. Have "Shield of Thorns," "Tunare's Renewal," and "Savage Spirit" memorized. (Btw, if you are a druid that gains exp. through charming get this 'GODLY' item . That item saves a spell slot and has excellent stats making it in my opinion a 'must-have' item.)

The fight:
Once you find a priest on track, wait for it to wander close to a zone wall (to minimize panther, Holgresh, and merc adds). Before you send your unicorn pet in to attack, give it the Thorns and Savage Spirit buffs. Give the orders to attack. If you feel that adds still might be a problem, order 'Follow' and spam 'Back'. The pet will still get summoned but the giant will give chase slowly to where you ideally want the fight to happen. The 3 priests cast but your pet will hit fast enough to interrupt them often. I've only seen them successfully get a CH off twice out of the few times they attempted it when they got low on HP. I read somewhere that they dispell too, but I can't confirm it since I've never seen it or have it happen (dispell'ed DC pet = game over). The way around dispell is to regular charm your future DC pet first and give it a bunch of junk buffs (see invis, Lev, EB, etc.) as well as casting resist magic when it is DC'd. You will probably have to use "Tunare's Renewal" about 5-8 times during the fight which really isn't alot of mana being consumed (with charming you never need KEI). You can throw a Ro's debuff spell during the fight but it's not necessary. Properly buffed, the fight lasts no more than 5 minutes tops. That was the hard part for this quest.

The easy part is getting Vindi's head (without having a guild to back you up). Make a Rallos Zek worshipping character (Ogre, Gnome, etc.) and have them travel to Kael (PoK to GD portstone to EW to Kael). Giants won't harm you on your way there. The only exceptions being Vindi, temple guardians, and other giants near Tormax throne room will scowl so stay away from them. By the way, Dire wolves in EW will also scowl so hug the West zone wall when you are going to Kael. Park your RZ character in the arena area and just observe when Vindi is up and which guild is fighting him, nothing else, that's all this character is for (it is NOT to loot the head obviously). Vindi has a respawn time of 9 hours but he doesn't live very long on my server since guilds quickly dispatch him if he is up. Many times guilds leave Vindi's head to rot (you could also bribe a guild for looting rights as an alternative way to acquire the head). There is a 30 minute timer on Vindi's corpse so you then have to log onto your druid and port to WL, egress to Kael entrance, and Camo to arena in Kael (shouldn't take more than 15 minutes). Giants in arena see invis but they generally won't be up since the guild that killed Vindi usually fights there way out. Loot head.

Travel to PoGrowth with the 4 heads. Find the Tunarean Earthmelder and hand them in for your gloves (don't worry, the flower won't give you a 'thank you' text). The only other requirements to this is you have to be over level 55 (which you should since DC is a lv 59 AA ability) and have good faction with PoG denizens (i.e. you shouldn't have hunted here at all). Don't be in wolf-form when handing in the heads (drops your faction level).

And that is all to it. Easy solo quest if you have DC. (DC makes alot of things possible...)

Thank you for the info! A guild needed some help killing Vindi, so a few guildies and I went to RA and grouped up with the force. They had 4 clerics and 1 druid, I was the 2nd. Two of the clerics and an offtank ended up dying, so it was down to 2 clerics and 2 druids as healers. (Raid leader kept saying "druids are spot healers, not MH", but look who saved him? :P) Well, I ended up winning the head with a roll of 97 (!!) and I was wondering if there was a tactic to soloing the rest of it. This has just made my day! Now to work on 62 and 12 more AA..
Spawn Time
# Jun 23 2003 at 1:28 PM Rating: Decent
Best estimate on the spawn time of the priests is between 24 and 36 hours based on checking periodically every 6 to 8 hours. I was timing Priest Delar from death to next time I saw him up.

spawn time
# May 16 2003 at 5:30 AM Rating: Decent
any1 got any clue about the spawn time of the priest or if they gonna be up after patch/server crash ?
cause i only seen Priest Bjek up in WL and i check WL every once in a while and run from druid ring to kael to pog !
# Jan 07 2003 at 6:46 PM Rating: Good
Quest is rather simple,
-Need to be 55+ druid
-Need to worship tunare
-Need to have a 51+ cleric friend and a 55+ mage or 50+ war friend.
-Willing to take the time and get some UBER gloves and is WELL worth it.

Need 3 Heads of priest in WL,
-one near the druid ring
-one near Kael ent
-one near PoG
(they all might not show up on track but just say your looking for the kael one... go out a little bit from the ent then track, if still not it isnt up)

I recomend doing these 3 priest with a 55+ mag or war, and a 55+ Kei'd (or better) cleric. (all cast so i DONT recomend pulling them. Go out to them and kill dont pull u WILL die..)

vindi's head is very simple also.
He is on a 6 hour timer (i think but u may like to double check that) so just go to the raid get some faction hehe, and ask for the head, most of the time it rots cus no one needs it, so just ask and they will give if not, come back for the next raid.

I did this quest starting with vindi's head, and all the priest were up at the time in about 2 hours all together.

After u have all the items (heads, should be 4) head to PoG (plain of growth)located in Wl. Nothing will kill you in PoG if your not KoS with tunare and there people, if u havent killed feithin (high elf place) guards. YOU NEED TO BE LEVEL 55 TO GET THE GLOVES.

When your in PoG loc and find Tunarean Earthmelder. It is a big big flower like thing in a lite up cage at loc Neg445 Neg2475.
If it is not up that means someone killed it. It dosnt give exp, or loot so most wouldnt kill it but if it dose its ok. It has a 24 hour spawn, and dosnt repop or anything like that when u hand in gloves so it should Always be up, even if tunare isnt up.

I hope this helps, Good luck on your Uber Gloves all your Tunare fans.

Good post, though I did use Annul Magic to pull the priests a considerable distance to the zone wall for the MA to tag. I invis-ed during the pull to avoid adds.

They will nuke, so wear resist gear (if needed). They will attempt to heal, so stun as needed. They will run, so ensnare.
#toptek, Posted: Mar 03 2003 at 1:14 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) IT GOT THE GLOVES and hate to say this i had to pul them all i got killed not pulin them by the greenies in WL i had my 56 cleric and me a 56 druid at the time . the first head i got i was with my cleric 56 a pally 56 and a bst cat 60 we puled gerk to zone had np then win i got was rdy for the 1 near the rings i couldnt pul him to zone so we went near the rings and did him i was with a lvl 60 necro and 56 mags and my cleric 56 anmd the mags and necro and druid died but iwas able to gate the cleric each time WE died HAD NO KEI that was the problem if we had win we puled would have been np i rezz all went got kei this time themn kiled the 1 near the rings then the 1 near PoG we got wipe becsase we didnt pul him to zone he was alm dead with my 57 druid and my 57 cleric and 57 warr got attacked by the mobb in zone to many came at us so we were dead. i rezz them then some other grped him so i had to wait alm two weeks for him to pop agin then we had no kei that time agin but this time only my druid died still 57 my cleric was able to hlp a bst 60 cat kill the last giant in WL .

Must worship Tunare
# Sep 04 2002 at 3:09 PM Rating: Decent
Yeah, yeah, I know this quest starts on PoG, home of Tunare, but being a Karana worshipper who is not KOS there, I guess I just got to excited about gloves to notice the are for Tunare worshippers only. Just thought I would post so this no other Karana worshipping druids go through all the trouble of getting some gloves they can't equip.
# Aug 19 2002 at 2:51 AM Rating: Excellent
i Got these gloves Aug 19 / 02 12:53 AM .. all 3 priests were up i did them all with a group of

56 druid (me)
60 war (1500AC, 6k HP)
60 clr

i pulled them all to Kael ent after clearing the guards, on pull i was only cast upon once or twice untill i got to kael, ussually for resisted or around 300-500dmg.

It took a while to drop them, Snare wont work on them so dont bother. Ro's Disjunction Landed (resisted tho once or twice) nukes landed fine, roots land, dots land very well.

pretty easy if you ask me , (cept doing vindi)
Quest changed?
# Aug 02 2002 at 8:18 PM Rating: Decent
After going up into PoG and getting the quest itself, the Tunarean Earthmelder now says, "Scouts have reported four priests wandering the Wakening Lands..." So is it four priests in WL and Vindi's head or just the four priests in WL?

I'm confused about the "four priests" instead of "three priests" as it says in the quest description above...any help would be appreciated.
RE: Quest changed?
# Aug 07 2002 at 3:27 PM Rating: Good
Well, Derakor the Vindicator is deep inside Kael and needs a guild level to take him down, or an extremely well equipped group with lots of healers. He is tough and has lots of HPs. The 3 named giants can be found not too far from the WL portal. A druid can usually pick up one or two right at zone in, however, one tends to be NW of the portal and a druid needs to go out to find him. A ranger will have no problems.
Have taken the 3 giants down with single group with one cleric. They cast on the puller and can do some good damage if your Magic resist is not that high. Do not recommend a druid do this unless they are pretty well equipped and good MR. As I found out, he kept aggro on me for quite a bit and ended up gating and returning.
These gloves are absolutely awesome, but Halflings are upset as they are the only druid race that can't use them.
With soooo many guilds killing Vindi, it should be far easier to find the heads being sold for MQ or simply let you loot em. These are definately a 'must have' item for a druid. Oh, for you twinks, remember, you have to be of a level to enter Plane of Growth to do turn-in. So it will be at least lvl 45 before you can get a set.

What's a fair ask price to Multi-quest this? I have Derakor's head on Druzzil and I'm offering it for sale.
Thanks in advance.
[edit] It's going to a lucky druid in the guild, but still curious what the value would be.

# Jul 12 2002 at 9:40 PM Rating: Default
If someone is willing to buy an MQ they are retarded, most often guilds that can even kill vindi will run out of druids who want the head and most often i find that the head rots, i got mine because no one in guild wanted it, second time around it was given to come guy that wandered up and asked if he could have it, as for the MQ, if you had the other heads of the priests, then an MQ would be very valuable since these guys are beatches and hard to kill, not to mention rare. I would probably pay 10-15k for such gauntlets, but thats just me
Wl heads
# May 29 2002 at 10:47 PM Rating: Default
ok, i have gremk's head and bjek's head, i was wondering where Priest Delar and Priest Grenk spawn abouts and if they are rare? And who is gremk, he as Priest Gremk, is he part of the quest? does he take the place of vindi's head? Any help would be appreciated.

confirmation, Delar does in fact wander by the circle. passed him twice while helping to set up for this quest.

Last priest Spawn
# Apr 05 2002 at 1:47 PM Rating: Default
Hello all
I have recently recieved Vindi's head on a raid I attended with a bunch of friends of mine. We went giant hunting last night, and killed all the priests except Delar. Anyone know if he is a triggered spawn or a rare spawn? i gotta get rid of this derakor head so i can get another to MQ for a friend.

I'm not sure about a triggered spawn, but I will say this, last week we killed him at the Druid ring in WL, he was walking though exactly where Woushi spawns. So, I would guess from this that Woushi has to be down for this guy to appear, otherwise she would wipe this guy pretty quick if that indeed was his normal pathing. Sorry I can't be of more help, hope you get your gloves.

I assumed that this was right, about Wuoshi killing Delar. But I was in WL looking for Delar and both were on track. Followed Delar around for a while (my friends weren't online yet) and he got pretty close to the rings, but apparenlty not close enough to Wuoshi for either to aggro. So, the good news is, Wuoshi being up won't prevent Delar from being up. I would guess that folks zoning into PoG accidetnally aggro him and kill him for being uppity.

I did this quest and it was easy except for the vindicator... the vindi has about 90,000 hp so bring an uber guild as for the others; i'm a level 60 druid and a 65 shammy skated through all the priest. My diety is also tunare so PoG was a walk in the park, just track...

# Mar 25 2002 at 3:58 AM Rating: Default
Did this guy 4 times in 2 days, we average 24-30 ppl for the kill, 1 (very minimal, you should have 2-3 war in case one bites it)very uber 60 war, 4+ clerics (bare min) about 2-3 rogs (58-60), about 5-10 assorted melee, 1-2 chanters (60's), shaman for slows (60), and some other classes in the mix about 5-10 of them, we had 3 clerics on 5 second cheal rotation, offensive about 75% then at 25-30% nuke him and drop every bit of mana you got left (watch for rage and mobs turning) and he shoudl drop easy, 8.5 hour pop timer and guards MUST be pulled first as they are linked to Vind and will come where he is no matter how good the puller is, hope this helps (this is not for the average pickup raid or sub ToV guild)

It's possible to get the quest if you're younger than 55, but the flower won't allow you to complete it unless you are 55+. So you can start it pre-55, but you'd best be at least 55 when you turn in your of luck to you on getting your gloves the next time around...
