You say, 'what test of the flame'

Telkorenar says 'Return the black tear, the black symbol the poison symbol and the serrated symbol to me, and you will have completed the test of flame. Your reward will be quite suitable to one who enters the fray of battle.

it's amazing how much you can learn about the insecurities and real life issues of people from posts like yours, mr. i hate monks. every class is useful for something... monks happen to be a pulling and damage class... they do it better than you do. seems to me that if monks in your groups are taking damage and "sponging" mana, then you aren't doing your one and only job of tanking very well eh? spend a little more time trying to appreciate what others bring to the game..you'll have more fun when you finally learn that it's not all about you

SK's are better pullers in my opinion and if monks are soaking up mana on heals they have a problem cause they can get rid of agro by a click of a button i have a 55 monk. so if there are mana sponge monks they dont know how to play a monk. but SK's are still better pullers because of snare FD pulling

argfeld, no one could have said it better. I wish more people would understand that its takes everyone to do things and your best people must be equiped to do trhe job so everyone else can get gear too.

Rangers have alot uses than you think...

remember the next time you lost and the only one that can find you is a ranger.

or the next all hell breaks loose, and the ranger snares every mob, and runs em around giving everyone time to get out.

or a mob eats thru you main tanks defensive disc, and the ranger turns on his weaponshield, giving a new main tank enough time to build agro, and take agro once the ranger dies.


want me to keep going?

heh, if you need the first thats sad...

the second one is usually the warrior taking aggro while everyone who can runs...

the only viable one is your last but hey...its a damn good one!

your forgeting the obvious...pure damage output which is what they are there for.

In order to get this kind of stuff, you need to be in your mid-50's or higher and in a decently powerful guild. That being the case, everybody has a very good idea of who gets what. I haven't even looked at the stats on this item. I am sure they are great for a monk as most monk-usable ToV items are. The point I am trying to make is that the guy who complained about monks getting items and threatening to quit his guild if it happens is almost certainly not the high level player he claims to be. If he were, he'd know better.

I see this over and over and over on these boards. People advertise their newbiness without even realizing it. I see silly people that think this sort of thing gets random rolled on. The only random rolling that gets done at this level is when it is too difficult to decide between two or three people who are the top choices for an item. Usually there is no rolling at all. At high levels, certain items really are "monk items", and EVERYBODY knows it. Some items are "druid items", and some are "warrior items", etc. ALL/ALL doesn't mean jack. I will make one exception to this. Things are different on PvP servers.

Something else to consider is that not all monks in a guild are equal and not all warriors in a guild are equal. For example, a nice piece of tanking armor might go to the main tanks amongst the warriors first and then go to the main pullers amongst the monks second, bypassing the other warriors. This is important for strategic reasons. Likewise, one or two monks in a guild who do an incredible amount of pulling might get very special treatment when it comes to equipment.

I have nothing against people saying "This is a great <insert class name> item!" I have yet to see someone make this statement and then say something derisive against the other classes that can use it. They might make an argument as to why the item should go to a particular class, but not by insulting the other classes. I have seen MANY people, after seeing such a statement, launch incredibly venomous attacks against the person who said it as if they had done them some personal injury.

EVERY single class in EQ has its uses. To say that one class is worthless is remarkably naive. Some, admittedly, are more useful than others, but none are truly useless. I have seen some amazingly talented players do things with a class that you would have sworn was not possible. I have also seen very high level, incredibly well equipped characters that were played by incompetent buffoons. I think they must have bought their characters from EBay. The player is more important than the class he plays.

All the answers you could possible want!

The quest
He is on CoV faction, need ally fer the quest, the 4 items drop in the halls of Testing in ToV (in the Eastwing to be accurate).

He is a mean wurm or Dragon and will kick your *** if your little ToV raid doesnt have the rigth resists (Cold and fire Fer WW where Telk is, magic fer Telk himself i think)

Telk drops the Emeral bastartsword of purity as rare
20/30 40 ac some hp some mana 1hs Paladin only think its in the Allakahzam database somewhere.
Not so rarely drops the Black Rockstone maul
23/24 15 av some hp some mana,1HB, Sk only
go look up Allas database again.
Also drops some Lance of thunder,
35/38 pal/Sk useable ,some hp and mana, procs something i cant remember.

Hope all questions are answered.

Never had any uses and Ive been everywhere but Veeshans peak, there was never a time that I said to myself god I wish we had a monk. Im lvl 59 Warrior now and off all the least desireable classes monk is there, and to add annoyance to insult, IT SHOULD BE MONK ONLY, god i hate those words. BTW monk for pulling is a joke, at lower lvls why? at mid lvls mez, and at high lvl their true form...mana sponges is truly shown.....buff me!!!! buff me!!!!! inc, heal me!!! FD....ok up in a while gotta clear agro.......Ive single pulled when needed and even with no mez had gethoe mez all the while everyone earned their keep. Next item i see given to this lame *** class cause of weight, Ill quit my guild. Did I mention I hate monks?

Jealousy is the highest form of flattery. What is it you hate? The fact that guilds spoil their main monks? Or maybe the fact that a monk of equal lvl is out damaging you? or maybe yer just pissed cause that monk hasnt died in the last 10 lvl's cause FD saved their ***** repeatedly? You have no clue fool. There are reasons monks get spoiled, and that reason being they are absolutly needed to pull off alot of the uber raids. Oh and btw if you are pulling without saying "buff me" then you are even more of a fool then your post makes you seem. Far as "heal me" goes if you are pulling the uber's and a monk or any other class for that matter has to repeatedly ask for heals your all dead anyway.

I suppose going on record anonymously isn't exactly "going on record"... now is it, chief?

Remember. There are no lame classes. There are only lame players. And lame players are the ones complaining about other classes being lame. I'd take a 10 monk over the original poster of this message anyday. Might die. But I wouldn't have to hear the endless complaints.

wow, you lameass gimpy jerkoff. I hope to god you eat that **** sandwich you just threw out there when/if the day comes that you need the queen blade from chardok for your epic. Not much chance of killing the queen without a FD puller to clear the king and queens guards. Well played monks are just as much a part of any real raid as a cleric or a warrior you moron. Its idiots like you that make people think all warriors are stupid ********. Oh, and btw...i am not a monk...I happen to be a warlord..so EAD.

this is the biggest crop of BS i've seen in my life! Monks are great for corpse retreivals and pulling at all lvls after 17 because of FD.I'd like to see YOU try to pull 4 corpses out of the basement of Karnors Castle at full spawn without dying,i have and it took a long time with all the mobs nuking me before i FD which you wouldn't be able to do so youd be dead.Bet you'd want a monk if YOUR corpse was down there.Maybe you should think before you post **** about topics you know nothing of.

Im not sure if Karnor's has something that keeps you from summoning corpses, I play on a teams pvp server and faction and crap keeps darks out of Karnors, but I dont see why a necro/sk wouldnt fill this need nicely. Sure coffins are costly but so is all new gear and that is just an expense you should learn to live with. Either way monks ARE necessary for any high level guilds to be successful.

Ok... where and off of what do the black tear, black symbol, poison symbol, and serrated symbol drop?
Goood idea?

Would it be a good idea to do this quest before my Warlord's and Myrmidon's (I ain't explaining if you don't know, sorry)armor quests? Or are these dragons different than the ones you have to kill for those?

Considering Telkorenar is a First Brood dragon in ToV, you need to be an ally with Claws of Veeshan. Also, Telkorenar may have a faction of his own.

So, from all the dragon killing I've done, I can no longer do this quest I imagine. Oh well, just get in a raid and kill Telk. He'll drop something worse, you just know it :)
RE: Faction
# Jun 18 2001 at 9:09 AM Rating: Decent
He drops Circlet of Suffering and Necklace of Nightstalking, which aren't bad items. If he's CoV faction, hopefully killing him doesn't make you permanently KOS to CoV, I'd like to get both his drops and his quests.

What faction do you need to do this quest?
