This quest is NOT worth your time. I usually enjoy quests, and I did on this one. I like the variety of challanges it gives you in game. But the reward for this quest is ill timed, as by the time your old enough to be able to kill what drops what's needed, the spell is pretty much useless. The final NPC you have to kill is lvl 53, and he almost annihilated my 54 ranger, but I had a friend zone in just in time to kill him for me.

So yea, don't waste your time with this unless your absolutely OCD about getting all the spells or you're really bored.

Depends on the era, on a TLP server in classic it is definitely worth your time.

Finaly got this spell today... lvl 57 ranger... the quest to get it isn't that hard... but the subquest to get the fourth turn in!?!?... What a wonderfull experiance that was... loot 2 rare drops off of 2 rare spawns on a 20 min respawn... EVIL!!! it took me well over 30 hours of farming greys to finally get the drops... and by lvl 57, the spell is next to useless... if your gona do this quest, start with the subquest in Castle Mistmoore while there is xp there... at least that way you will get sumething out of all the grinding you are about to do...

Unless this spell is researchable, I'd recommend waiting until level 52, when you get your next nuke. You will not get the drop in Naggy's Lair. The imps have a HUGE aggro radius, and since it's an indoor zone, you cannot cast Harmony on them.

Im one who has to have all my spells no matter how insignificant.
however I can't get this quest started, I hail Devin, then Lilly, say "I am a ranger",, then " who is Ganelorn Oast", and dialog stops there.
I think it might be a faction thing, not sure though, please help.

Going back and clicking on Devin and then back to Lily again worked for me. I was stumped at first when the dialog stopped.

I had same problem very long time. I tried that many times over time. Then at level 55 I tried to say "I will take him the letter" like it says in quest text and I got the letter hehe.

To be honest. the most coveted weapon from the original was the sword that dropped in kith forrest. I forget who from but the stats where 12 dmg 24 dly +2 str, +2 sta and had a proc of 176dd (shock of blades I think) people would drool if anyone had it.
YIPPEEE GOT IT!

This is an OLD quests like KridgKanthar have mentioned previously. It may seem like a total waste of time for the casual gamer, BUT for those that are HARDCORE Quest Junkies, This is a MUST for a ranger!
NOt every thing in EQ is base on getting the BEST STATS or the BEST GEAR or the BEST Weapons. Some people play everquest purely for self graitfication of completing a quest. There is a sense of self fulfillment in completing something especially in something that is Redundant, HARD, or LONG and BORING as I have heard from some of the whiners on the board. Let me Reiterate for Emphasis. ONE MAN JUNK IS ANOTHER MAN TREASURE =)
For those that love ranger class like I do, it NOt about getting that level, it's about playing the best ranger that can be played using whatever you can get your hands on. A GREAT players are those that can make others wonders how he/she does it using that junk he or she has on hand! SOME people play ranger for Tanking, other play Ranger for Farming, Yet other play ranger for Questing. What Kind of player are you? The best one are the one that incorporate all of that into one class and make a seemly useless class into something other people Marveled about. IF you find yourself whining and complaining about a quest or about your chars. Best thing is Delete and make another chars. =)

Not NoDrop, should just be NoPickUp, someone was smoking Crack when they set this spell up. By the time u have it, its useless and is resisted by more than 65% of the mobs. Save your money and above all else TIME and just get FireStrike at 52. Paying more than 10-20 p for this waste of a parchment is foolish. A 49 SPELL ?!?!, you'd be lucky to pull this off at 55 without dying, heck may not EVEN be able to get into Naga's lair by the time your ready to complete this...

The reason this spell seems so out of proportion is because it is so old. This was the first ranger quest spell added to the game, and was added before Kunark, when the level limit was still 50, making it the single best ranger nuke available. You can't effectively put a price on the best available version of something, and many people went to great lengths to get this. Yes it's out of date now, but I remember how much a drooled at the time, dreaming of the day I could get it myself.

Context is always important in judging things like these. Just like people think a Short Sword of the Ykesha is newbie junk now, that was once the most coveted 1hs in the game, and was what people would carry into battle against dragons in the first year or two.

There would be no harm in maybe simplifying the quest now though. Many people will just skip it all together. I am debating it myself. Get rid of the Electrum-Bladed Waikishi, or whatever, and it becomes a quest I might actually do.

yeah someone screwed up BIG time inventing the quest for this.

I'm now a 60 ranger and from the moment I started, I decided my supreme goal would be to max everything -languages, skills, trades, stats, and even to get every spell.

I don't like pushing guild to help me on things so i plan to eventually solo this. But they made the quest so damned hard, I don't even want to try it for another few levels. And yet all the time, this isn't a lev 65 spell, or 60, or even 55.....level 49?!

That's just silly.
Total waste of time!

What a total waste of time getting this spell!!
First, you camp the Maid and the Butler for hours to get the fangs needed in order to get the EBK from the Avenging Caitliff, then you also have to wait hours and hours on a step with a spawn time of 30 min to kill a green mob to get to the Caitliff.
Now, mind you, I'm a 50 Ranger with a 1001 ATK and 980 AC, using a Lammy and a Frostbringer, with full Ranger buffs and SCHW, I still, at times, got down to 1 1/2 bubbles of health from some green necro caster.
It's possible to buy the fangs in the Bazaar, if you're lucky. It's also possible to buy the Adamantite Band. Bring PP, lots of PP!
You have to go into the Lair of Nagafen (Sol B)to get the Imp Protector. After fighting your way in and killing a couple dozen mobs just to get to the Imps. I had to kill 5 Imps before I got a sash to drop. This is not an easy camp for the foolhardy. I was fortunate, I had a 58 druid, a 58 warrior, a 60 chanter and myself. It wasn't that hard.
The mob in East Karana also wasn't that hard for this group to take down.
After all the time and effort to do this and, to be honest, it took a solid 25 hours of camping to get the items. Another Ranger and I Camped the Caitliff for 15 hours without a pop. I finally petitioned, asking if the Quest was broken. A GM came on and told me the Quest was not broken and there was nothing he could do. 2 minutes later the Caitliff popped. I did my turn in and he despawned. I thanked the GM for not helping and told him that there was 2 of us waiting for him and how he despawned, basically ******** my partner. 10 minutes later the Caitliff popped again.
Now after all this time and effort, I get a spell that does a 206 DD. If I was smart and someone had written this and I had read it, I would have xp'd for 2 damn levels and gotten Firestrike that does 282 DD.
What a total waste of time!

to anyone reading this very old post, ignore it, he is comparing a spell with a 4.0 second cast time vs. a 0.5 second cast time, Call of Flame is a LOT better and yes it takes work to get it but if you play on TLP's you have plenty of time until the next expansion and so on.
