Torment of Velious Info & Guides: Overview | Progression & Task List | Raiding | Visible Armor



Prerequisite: Potential Earring of Rallos Zek needs to be 100% evolved, All Hail the Cleansing, Explorer of Torment of Velious

If you don't do all the prerequisites, Crusader Vraket will just stare at you in his dialogue.

You say, 'All Hail Rallos Zek'

Crusader Vraket says, 'All Hail Rallos Zek. It looks like you have blooded the earring. Good. Then we are ready for the next step once you [find and report] on some [lesser children] of Rallos Zek.'

You say, 'find and report'

Crusader Vraket says, 'The orcs here, except for Grunak over there, are all dead, infected by that restless ice. But there is an underground nearby. I believe it is called the Ry`Gorr Mines. Go there and see if there are Survivors. No, wait.' Crusader Vraket looks you up and down. 'No. They aren't going to let you talk. They'll kill you on sight. I think I [know what to do].

You say, 'lesser children'

Crusader Vraket says, 'Perhaps that is unfair. I only think that way because they are so small. I also do not know the mind of Rallos Zek. He may respect them the most or the least.'

You say, 'know what to do'

Crusader Vraket says, 'Yes. We'll [make a totem] that will tell them you are a friend. At least temporarily.'

You say, 'make a totem'

You have been assigned the task 'Orcs on Ice'.

Crusader Vraket says, 'It seems counterproductive, but I expect they are having issues with these dead as well. Kill some of the restless dead orcs. You will need an intact head, an intact spine, velium infused pelt, and some velium ore. Create a simple velium rod. Use pliers to pull raw velium ore into a rod. The use the rod as support through the spine into the head and tie it together with the pelt. You'll need sheers to cut the pelt. This totem will convince the orcs there to speak to you. Assist them if they ask, but above all, bring back a report.'




  • 1. Collect 1 Intact Restless Dead Orc Skull(s) 0/1 (ALL)



  • 2. Collect 1 Intact Restless Dead Orc Spine(s) 0/1 (ALL)



  • 3. Collect 1 Raw Velium Ore(s) 0/1 (ALL)



  • 4. Collect 1 Velium Infused Pelt(s) 0/1 (ALL)



  • The above items drop off multiple ToV mobs and are pre-lootable. Having the items in your inventory before getting this task will update these steps.


  • 5. Create 1 Simple Velium Rod using tradeskills 0/1 (ALL)

    Crusader Vraket says, 'Creating the rod is easy enough. Use pliers on ore in a forge. A rank acolyte can do this.'

    Make 1 Simple Velium Rod by combining 1 Raw Velium Ore with 1 Pliers in a forge (150 smithing). - (Recipe)



  • 6. Create 1 Ry`Gorr Parley Totem using tradeskills 0/1 (ALL)

    Create 1 Ry`Gorr Parley Totem You will need an intact head, an intact spine, velium infused pelt, and a simple velium rod. Use the rod as a support through the spine into the head and tie it together with the pelt. You'll need tools to cut the pelt into strips.

    Combine 1 Intact Restless Dead Orc Skull, 1 Intact Restless Dead Orc Spine, 1 Velium Infused Pelt and 1 Hickory Handled Shears in a loom (468 tailoring) to make a Ry`Gorr Parley Totem. - (Recipe)



  • 7. Find the [status] of the trapped Ry`Gorr orcs 0/4 (The Ry`Gorr Mines)

    Speak with the orcs in the Ry`Gorr Mines and inquire after their "status".

    NOTE: Buy 20+ Iron Rations, go to the Ry'Gorr Mines and equip your Ry'Gorr Parley Totem. You are looking for LIVE Orcs and you want to say STATUS to the ones that are not a 'miner' type. Warning: Do not talk to UNDEAD Orcs, they will attack you! The faction modifier does NOT work on them.

    If you are a rogue make sure you have SNEAK off when doing the "STATUS" part of the quest (Step 7). If you have SNEAK on and aren't directly in front of the Ry'Gorr, you will con indifferent and will receive the message: A Ry'Gorr xxx says, "You need to prove your dedication to our cause before I can discuss such matters with you." This will cause you to not update the quest, and you won't be able to talk about that status again until you zone out.

    When you say "Status" to an Orc, if they respond with bracketed text, follow along. You need four updates.

    Responses include...

    "Is that a Parley Totem? Are you speaking for {Rallos Zek}?
    You respond, "Rallos Zek"
    "Of course. Why didn't you say so! We are under {siege}.
    You respond, "siege"
    "The dead surround us!"

    "Wait. What! I'll kill you! Who sent you?"

    "What? who are you? Who gives you the right to talk to me?"

    "All hail (Rallos Zek}.
    You say, "Rallos Zek"
    "Rallos Zek is wise. Some of us are trapped by the cursed undead without food and drink! Rallos Zek must have sent you to {assist}.
    You say, "assist"
    (I got no response for this keyword.)

    "All hail (Rallos Zek}.
    You say, "Rallos Zek"
    The {ice} won't stop. It comes. It grows. it screams!
    You say "ice"
    (I got no response for this keyword.)

    For Orcs you have all ready spoken to, you might see a chat window emote that says:

    "You already know this status. Try another orc."



  • 8. Kill 15 Restless Dead 0/15 (The Ry'Gorr Mines)



  • 9. Collect 6 Ry'Gorr Velium Ores 0/6 (ALL)

    You can trade / cancel trade for update, or just loot them.



  • 10. Deliver 10 Iron Ration to Ry'Gorr 0/10 (The Ry'Gorr Mines)

    NOTE: Basically, some orcs are trapped by the undead in the mines. What this means is that some live orcs are in a part of the zone with no clear way out except by having to go through an undead orc area. You will find these Orcs in the top NE part of the map. You need give an Iron Ration to ten (10) DIFFERENT orcs.

    NOTE: The wrong Orcs will take your food ration, look at you weird, shrug, put it in their backpack and say, "Um. Thank you."

    NOTE: The right orcs will nod, thank you and eat it.



  • 11. Give Crusader Vratek {your report} 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    You say, "Hail, Crusader Vraket."

    Crusader Vraket says, "What is [your report]?"

    You say, "your report"

    Crusader Vraket says, "Get to it. How are the [Ry'Gorr orcs]?"

    You say, "The Ry'Gorr orcs are under siege. The restless dead are in the mines, and some of them are even cut off. I destroyed some of the dead, gathered a decent sample of the ore the dead are taking, and gave food to the isolated orcs."

    Your task 'Orcs on Ice' has been updated.

    Crusader Vraket says, "That is good, concise report. Your help honors Rallos Zek. His children need to live to prove their strength. For your assistance, I'll give you the means to improve your earring. For this you'll need some purified velium. Made of ice, the normal method of boiling the impurities away from the ore will not work. So instead of heat, mix six chunks of Ry'Gorr raw velium ore and four jars of acid. I expect a mixing bowl will be the best option."



  • 12. Create 1 Purified Velium using tradeskills 0/1 (All) - (Recipe)



  • 13. Deliver 1 Purified Velium to Crusader Vraket 0/1 (The Eastern Wastes)

    (Give it to him, he will give it back.)

    Crusader Vraket says, "Good good. this velium will Seal the blood into the earring. Work it into the earring. You'll need purified mana to go with purified velium. Then, once you have created the new earring, blood it as the previous. You'll also need to prove yourself as a mercenary."



  • 14. Create 1 Forceful Earring of Rallos Zek using tradeskills 0/1 (ALL)

    Remove any augs from your current earring, then combine it with the Purified Velium and a Vial of Purified Mana (Jewelry 471), to make a Forceful Earring of Rallos Zek. - (Recipe)

    Your task 'Orcs on Ice' has been updated.

    Show your strength and drench your earring in the blood of your enemies

    You receive 425 platinum.
    You have gained 22 ability point(s)!

    Now wear the new ear and XP it to 100%, to get the next quest.

    Also -- his last response about proving yourself as a mercenary suggests that mercenary achievements may be required to get the 3rd quest. Anyone know for sure?



    Reward(s):
    425 platinum
    You gain experience!

    I have tried everything to get him to give me the second quest. I've done the first one, been to all ToV zones, evolved the earring to level 2, and even did all the quests and missions in Eastern Wastes. I am stumped on what I need to do to get him to give me the 2nd part. I have done it on 8 characters and he just stares at all 8 of them. Anyone have any other suggestions?

    I had the first quest, All Hail The Cleansing, done for quite a while with the earring bloodied before deciding to begin Orcs on Ice.
    I had removed the augs and kept trying to hand in earring, he kept giving it back. If I hailed him I got the message, Crusader Vraket Stares at you. Just wanted to point out because it wasn't apparent to me and took a little bit of time to figure it out.

    If you have finished the first quest, have all the traveler pre-requisites and your earring is fully evolved,(bloodied), you must be WEARING the earing when trying to get the second quest, Orcs on Ice. Otherwise he thinks the earring is still primitive(unbloodied) or just stares at you.

    If the RNG does not like you, it is possible to hail every live (non-miner) orcs and not get all of your responses. If that happens, just zone out and return. This resets them and allows you to try them all again.
    Step 7

    Be sure and don't "hail" them but simply step up to them and say "status". To my embarrassment I was too dumb to do that and hope this helps someone else in the future
    find the status updates

    On the find the status step after you say "status" and get a response ive found the go to seems to be "Rallos zek". For instance.
    You say status.
    A Ry`Gorr watchman says, in Orcish, "What? who are you? Who gives you the right to talk to me?"
    /say Rallos zek.
    A Ry`Gorr watchman says, in Orcish, Of course. Why didn't you say so! We are under [siege].
    You say, 'siege'
    A Ry`Gorr watchman says, in Orcish,The dead surround us!
    (quest update)

    A Ry`Gorr watchman says, in Orcish,Wait. What! i'll kill you! Who sent you?
    You say rallos zek.
    A Ry`Gorr watchman says, in Orcish,The thrice-cursed dead are stealing our ore. [stop them].
    You say stop them.
    A Ry`Gorr watchman says, in Orcish,I think it's that ice. It's not only freezing us but raising the dead.
    (quest update)

    so it seems no mater what they say after you say status to them, just say "Rallos zek" and you got a shot at a quest update, even if they don't give you text in {brackets}.

    * Create 1 Purified Velium using tradeskills 0/1 All

    RECIPE: 4 x Jar of Acid & 6 x Ry'Gorr Velium Ore in a Mixing Bowl (Baking 300)

    * Deliver 1 Purified Velium to Crusader Vraket 0/1 The Eastern Wastes

    (Give it to him, he will give it back.)

    Crusader Vraket says, "Good good. this velium will Seal the blood into the earring. Work it into the earring. You'll need purified mana to go with purified velium. Then, once you have created the new earring, blood it as the previous. You'll also need to prove yourself as a mercenary."

    I found out today if the Purified Velium is made in advance you can still make the new earring and task will update that part of task but didn't update the part having to make it and had to make it again.

    The item made in step 5 needs to be used in the combination with the items in step 6. The rod should be added to the ingredients for step 6.

    Sorry, the rod made in step 5 is used in the combination of step 6, but you don't have the rod from step five in the recipe for step 6.

    To have evolved earring to maximum is mandatory before Crusader Vraket will assign this task. Otherwise, if this or any other piece is missing, he will emote, "Crusader Vraket stares at you." (I am requesting that this information be added to the two prerequisites now stated in the heading of the quest.)

    I suspect this will be true for each of the following versions of the earring as well.

    Learn Orcish if you can, although you won't need it. Wear your Ry'Gorr Parley Totem in primary or secondary slot. Can say to the same Orc "Siege" "Assist" "Stop Them" "Ice"
    to get multiple updates

    When the 1st Earring hit 100%, it progressed on it's own (no need to claim it, or remove augs 1st, etc.).

    Once it evolves, go to Crusader Vraket:

    You say, 'All hail Rallos Zek'
    Crusader Vraket says, 'All Hail Rallos Zek. It looks like you have blooded the earring. Good. Then we are ready for the next step once you [find and report] on some [lesser children] of Rallos Zek.'
    You say, 'find and report'
    Crusader Vraket says, 'The orcs here, except for Grunak over there, are all dead, infected by that restless ice. But there is an underground nearby. I believe it is called the Ry`Gorr Mines. Go there and see if there are Survivors. No, wait.' Crusader Vraket looks you up and down. 'No. They aren't going to let you talk. They'll kill you on sight. I think I [know what to do].
    You say, 'lesser children'
    Crusader Vraket says, 'Perhaps that is unfair. I only think that way because they are so small. I also do not know the mind of Rallos Zek. He may respect them the most or the least.'
    You say, 'know what to do'
    Crusader Vraket says, 'Yes. We'll [make a totem] that will tell them you are a friend. At least temporarily.'
    You say, 'make a totem'
    You have been assigned the task 'Orcs on Ice'.

    Task Steps Are:

    * Collect 1 Intact Restless Dead Orc Skull(s) 0/1 All
    * Collect 1 Intact Restless Dead Orc Spine(s) 0/1 All
    * Collect 1 Raw Velium Ore(s) 0/1 All
    * Collect 1 Velium Infused Pelt(s) 0/1 All

    NOTE: The above four steps updated automatically from the items I already had in my inventory.

    * Create 1 Simple Velium Rod using Tradeskills 0/1 All

    RECIPE: Pliers & Raw Velium Ore in a Forge (Smithing is 150, item is No Trade)

    * Create 1 Ry'Gorr Parley Totem using tradeskills 0/1 All

    RECIPE: Simple Velium Rod, Intact Restless Dead Orc Spine, Intact Restless Dead Orc Skull, Hickory Handled Shears & Velium Infused Pelt (in a Loom, Tailoring 468, the item is No Trade)

    NOTE: This makes a Ry'Gorr Parley Totem that is No Trade but not Lore. This is a faction modifier that you will be able to retain.

    * Find the {status} of the trapped Ry'Gorr orcs 0/4 The Ry'Gorr Mines

    NOTE: Buy 20+ Iron Rations, go to the Ry'Gorr Mines and equip your Ry'Gorr Parley Totem. You are looking for LIVE Orcs and you want to say STATUS to the ones that are not a 'miner' type. Warning: Do not talk to UNDEAD Orcs, they will attack you! The faction modifier does NOT work on them.

    When you say "Status" to an Orc, if they respond with bracketed text, follow along. You need four updates.

    Responses include...

    "Is that a Parley Totem? Are you speaking for {Rallos Zek}?
    You respond, "Rallos Zek"
    "Of course. Why didn't you say so! We are under {siege}.
    You respond, "siege"
    "The dead surround us!"

    "Wait. What! I'll kill you! Who sent you?"

    "What? who are you? Who gives you the right to talk to me?"

    "All hail (Rallos Zek}.
    You say, "Rallos Zek"
    "Rallos Zek is wise. Some of us are trapped by the cursed undead without food and drink! Rallos Zek must have sent you to {assist}.
    You say, "assist"
    (I got no response for this keyword.)

    "All hail (Rallos Zek}.
    You say, "Rallos Zek"
    The {ice} won't stop. It comes. It grows. it screams!
    You say "ice"
    (I got no response for this keyword.)

    For Orcs you have all ready spoken to, you might see a chat window emote that says:

    "You already know this status. Try another orc."


    * Kill 15 Restless Dead 0/15 The Ry'Gorr Mines (self-explanatory)

    * Collect 6 Ry'Gorr Velium Ores 0/6 ALL

    You can trade / cancel trade for update, or just loot them.

    * Deliver 10 Iron Ration to Ry'Gorr 0/10 The Ry'Gorr Mines

    NOTE: Basically, some orcs are trapped by the undead in the mines. What this means is that some live orcs are in a part of the zone with no clear way out except by having to go through an undead orc area. You will find these Orcs in the top NE part of the map. You need give an Iron Ration to ten (10) DIFFERENT orcs.

    NOTE: The wrong Orcs will take your food ration, look at you weird, shrug, put it in their backpack and say, "Um. Thank you."

    NOTE: The right orcs will nod, thank you and eat it.


    * Give Crusader Vratek {your report} 0/1 The Eastern Wastes

    You say, "Hail, Crusader Vraket."
    Crusader Vraket says, "What is {your report}?"
    You say, "your report"
    Crusader Vraket says, "Get to it. How are the {Ry'Gorr orcs}?"
    You say, "The Ry'Gorr orcs are under siege. The restless dead are in the mines, and some of them are even cut off. I destroyed some of the dead, gathered a decent sample of the ore the dead are taking, and gave food to the isolated orcs."
    Crusader Vraket says, "That is good, concise report. Your help honors Rallos Zek. His children need to live to prove their strength. For your assistance, I'll give you the means to improve your earring. For this you'll need some purified velium. Made of ice, the normal method of boiling the impurities away from the ore will not work. So instead of heat, mix six chunks of Ry'Gorr raw velium ore and four jars of acid. I expect a mixing bowl will be the best option."


    * Create 1 Purified Velium using tradeskills 0/1 All

    RECIPE: 4 x Jar of Acid & 6 x Ry'Gorr Velium Ore in a Mixing Bowl (Baking 300)

    * Deliver 1 Purified Velium to Crusader Vraket 0/1 The Eastern Wastes

    (Give it to him, he will give it back.)

    Crusader Vraket says, "Good good. this velium will Seal the blood into the earring. Work it into the earring. You'll need purified mana to go with purified velium. Then, once you have created the new earring, blood it as the previous. You'll also need to prove yourself as a mercenary."

    * Create 1 Forceful Earring of Rallos Zek using tradeskills 0/1 ALL

    Remove any augs from your current earring, then combine it with the Purified Velium and a Vial of Purified Mana (Jewelry 471), to make a Forceful Earring of Rallos Zek.

    Now wear the new ear and XP it to 100%, to get the next quest.

    Also -- his last response about proving yourself as a mercenary suggests that mercenary achievements may be required to get the 3rd quest. Anyone know for sure?
