Vorken is worried that the son of his rival, Bevelious Thunderstone is plotting to kill him. He wants you to get him first. The son, Ekelng Thunderstone, can be found in the Eastern Wastes. He drops a head when he is killed. For delivering the head of the plotter, Vorken will reward you with the Vambraces of Avoidance.

Pulled him to EW /GD Zone gorge. Hit with DOT's, Ensare and Root until out of Mana. Beware , he breaks root quickly. When nearly out of Mana I rooted him, zoned, returned, and medded while he hung around weakened. Able to then Root until he hit 20%. I was OOM at his 20%, so 2H Blunted him to death.

Quest item nice gift for a Guildee.

I took my 56 pet, augmented of course, darkness, cecession of cor, and fear and beat its ***** I only started with 40mana after making and buffing pet so had demi on.

Took about 4 mins total.
Easy kill.

Easy kill, I solo'd him at lvl 48, literally like five minutes ago, and now I'm here to check out what the head is for. Took me about ten min's of kiting, and being a bard, it didn't take mana, or hp to do. He fell like a rock, and now that I see it's a KD quest, and that my KD factoin is straight up gucked, I'm gonna go ahead and destroy this head. :P Pretty useless to me. But that's a nice reward for any bard who wants to be friendly with the chunky butts, and easy to do solo, very easy. :P Anywho, peace.

Goofy bard. I'm a 54 bard, and took me 20 minutes to kill him, with best drum and best DoT.

I took him down at 48, using the walrus skin drum, and it took me 5 minutes. What DoT's were you using? And were you charming things to send after him?

Myself (52 cleric) and a 60 mage killed this guy took alot of the mages mana but i couldve kept pet up alot longer relatively easy kill unfortunately we killed him because he was there and didnt know the quest i was hoping it was tied into a thurgadin quest as it is im very kos to all giants so i guess this is useless to me if anyone knows of a dwarf alternative for this quest please post.

This quest actually raises Kromzek and Kromrif and lowers Coldain and Dain faction. Must be amiable with Kromrif to get the reward.

You must have Amiable or better faction to do this quest, otherwise he will eat the item. This quest also gives the three giant factions and lowers CoV.
kill the giant
# Aug 20 2001 at 12:40 PM Rating: Default could just kill him! He drops them too hehe

Giants Evil muahahahhaahhaah

Vorken is located in the Chanter House , if you enter from EW just stay to the left all the way down , then up ice ramp go rt and you will find the house , he inside , they see invs. in there .

do you think i could do this on a dubious faction? i have the head already...maybe sneaking up behind him would work...
# May 05 2001 at 11:13 AM Rating: Default
anyone seen Vorken?? i have looked all over the damn city for him and havent found him yet. also what faction is he on and how high does it have to be? im amiable with kromzek/kromrif and i think im at indifferently to the tormax faction mobs.
# Apr 25 2001 at 5:45 AM Rating: Decent
does anyone who has killed this giant remember what faction hits you get for him? is it bad giant faction to kill him ? good giant faction to do this quest ?
RE: faction
# May 05 2001 at 11:11 AM Rating: Default
none, there is no faction for killing him. also he is kos to everyone.
head no drop

Yep the head is no drop. Surprisingly for being a giant head it also weighs 0.0 We killed ekelng thunderstone just past the GD zone. We kited him forever he had a ton of still kos and amiable to the dorfs so when I finally do bother to get my faction up ill hand in the head.
# Feb 06 2001 at 5:24 AM Rating: Default
Is the Head a no drop item ?
i suppose yes, i hope no ;)
Son's name is "Ekelng"

#Anonymous, Posted: Dec 27 2000 at 8:03 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Out of most of the items that I've seen drop in EverQuest, only a few actually have anything to do with the name given them. Why doesn't Verant give items that use words like, "Avoidance" plusses in the equivalent skill?!? In this case, there should be +'s in agility! A +3 Strength hardly earns the name of avoidance.

By giving you these vambraces he avoided death from his rival's son.
