Best City

Ok,once you figure out the city one time you know it already. Its got merchants allover, so you dont take more time.....But that Tubal Weaver guy is the worst,don't sell or buy from him...his prices suck. Sell to Connie Link in front of Ironforge's estate. It has a good newbie zone too. So this should make a good city for you,it has Qeynos Hills right out of the newb zone. Wisp essence is pretty good there from a wisp, but Greater Lightstones sell for 4pp from the merchants in Qeynos and MartonSayer in that little house in the hills.

Brewing and Baking
# Apr 15 2003 at 8:52 PM Rating: Default
These zones are awesome for starting brewing and baking. All you have to do is buy snake scales, bottles, and water flasks for brewing, and a loaf of bread, rat ear, jug of sauces, and (optional) a spit.

After you get to 21 in brewing, make malted milk by buying one milk, one malt, and one bottle each.

I got to 36 in baking and 26 in brewing as I write this nearly entirely in these zones. After all that, I spent about 10 pp and got about 8 pp back. All this with 113 cha and 139 int.

Wisp Essence??
# Jun 15 2002 at 8:18 PM Rating: Decent
I am a lvl 10 paladin following Rodcent Nife, and have been attempting to do my armor quest. I need a wisp essence of some sort, but cant seem to find one. I assume they drop off of willow wisps, but have yet to have one drop. A kind higher lvl druid was helping me kill them, as i cant hit them, but nothing. Someone suggested something about them being distilled? Any help would be apreciated.

Saw some wisp essence for sale on a vendor in Qeynos so it is droppable (can't remember what the graphic was though -- could be the same as a vial of mana).

Never heard of wisp essence, but once in West Commonlands-- not Qeynos--I had a "vial of smoke" drop off a wisp, a nodrop item. It looks like a bottle. I've killed a lot of wisps, and have only seen this once. I assume it is a fairly rare drop (at least in WC).

Wisp essence drops off of the wisps in Qeynos Hills, almost every time you kill a wisp. Just go out and hunt you some wisps and save GLS's for the concordance quest in NK.

The newbie zone in North Qeynos has been improved greatly when it comes to making money for newbies. The addition of new animals as well as some new loot means that one can now make enough for spells and some decent equipment (although I find the newbie armor quests to be quite good in that regard -- better than those in Freeport).

The best source of money are the plague rat tails that drop from large rats. These sell to merchants for about 1pp 7gp. The following MOBs also drop some quest items that sell to merchants for 2gp each:

whiskered bats -- drop eyes, backbones, fangs
decaying skeletons -- drop tibia
large rats -- field rat skulls

I hunted nothing but these animals in the zone, and had over 20pp by the time I was level 5. Can probably make much more, but the plague rat tails are not as common as other items.

Moving on to the hills will also produce more items from the gnolls scouts (various bones, hides and blood) that also sell for about 2gp. So things are finally looking up for this neglected outpost.

Addition: after a recent patch, there are some additional drops from rats (eyes) and gopher snakes (king snake jaw bones and scales/skins) that also earn decent money. Brought a couple of new characters here from levels 1 through 3 and hunted nothing but rats, skeletons, and gopher snakes (plus whatever gnoll pup attacked), and walked away with 30-40pp -- some good coin for the untwinked newbie to start out with.

>>Reldin Harkolis is found in the room off to the left of the qeynos rogue elader(the room with the double doors leading to it)

You say, 'Hail, Reldin Harkolis'
Reldin Harkolis says 'Hail Samedhi. Know that only within these few passageways and rooms whose borders are marked by the symbol of the Circle of Unseen Hands can we speak freely of our organization and its undertakings. Neither the streets of the city above nor the sewers and catacombs are free of ears that would harm the Circle of Unseen Hands should they hear of our [secrets].'
You say, 'what secrets?'
Reldin Harkolis says 'The Circle has many secrets some of which only Hans may know. Our agents are all about, mingling among the common law abiding folk and working in all manner of profession. At one time we had a significant number of the Qeynos Guard allied to our organization but the loyal soldiers of Antonius Bayle IV has discovered and punished many of them. The ones that remain are hesitant at best to continue their association with us. You will need to exercise much caution within this city as you learn the ropes. I will help get you outfitted in some [gear] that you will find useful in our line of work.'
You say, 'what gear?'
Reldin Harkolis says 'Take this Curing Kit. With it you can assemble an outfit of light, flexible, and sturdy yet inconspicuous leather clothing to protect you from the perils of your job. The materials required will depend on the piece of clothing you desire to craft. Do you plan on crafting Sturdy Workmans [Gloves], Sturdy Workmans [Boots], a Sturdy Workmans [Bracer], a Sturdy Workmans [Cap], Sturdy Workmans [Leggings], Sturdy Workmans [Sleeves], or a Sturdy Workmans [Tunic]? Once you are suitably outfitted return to me and I will inform you of your [next job].'

You say, 'what gloves?'
Reldin Harkolis says 'To craft Sturdy Workmans Gloves you require two [silk thread], a ruined wolf pelt, two giant field rat whiskers, and a large king snake skin. Once you have the necessary components combine them in your Curing Kit with this Tattered Glove Pattern.'

You say, 'what boots?'
Reldin Harkolis says 'To craft Sturdy Workmans Boots you require two [silk thread], two ruined wolf pelts, two giant field rat whiskers, and a large king snake skin. Once you have the necessary components combine them in your Curing Kit with this Tattered Boot Pattern.'

You say, 'what bracer?'
Reldin Harkolis says 'To craft an Sturdy Workmans Bracer you require a [silk thread], a ruined wolf pelt, and a giant field rat whiskers. Once you have the necessary components combine them in your Curing Kit with this Tattered Wristband Pattern.'
You say, 'what cap?'
Reldin Harkolis says 'To craft a Sturdy Workmans Cap you require two [silk thread], a ruined wolf pelt, a large myotis bat fur, and a large king snake skin. Once you have the necessary components combine them in your Curing Kit with this Tattered Coif Pattern.'
You say, 'what leggings?'
Reldin Harkolis says 'To craft Sturdy Workmans Leggings you require three [silk thread], a low quality wolf pelt, two large myotis bat furs, and a giant king snake skin. Once you have the necessary components combine them in your Curing Kit with this Tattered Pant Pattern.'
You say, 'what sleeves?'
Reldin Harkolis says 'To craft Sturdy Workmans Sleeves you require two [silk thread], a low quality wolf pelt, two large myotis bat furs, and a giant king snake skin. Once you have the necessary components combine them in your Curing Kit with this Tattered Sleeves Pattern.'
You say, 'what tunic?'
Reldin Harkolis says 'To craft a Sturdy Workmans Tunic you require four [silk thread], a medium quality wolf pelt, a giant myotis bat fur, and a giant king snake skin. Once you have the necessary components combine them in your Curing Kit with this Tattered Tunic Pattern.'
You say, 'what next job?'
Reldin Harkolis says 'A message between two of our agents was recently intercepted by a Qeynos Guardsman. The message is encoded in thieves cant but should the guards eventually decode it we would expect trouble. Guard Gregor, the guard who currently is in possession of the message is out patrolling somewhere in the West Karanas. Find this guard and recover the message. Bring it back to me when you have done so.'

He has been missing since about the Halloween event time frame.

Just vanished. But that doesn't mean his disapperence is a bug, there might be same in game story that hasn't been found yet. Might even be a new quest like "where is Astaed?".

I was on an ALT and looking at Quests in MISTY THICKET. Came accross this one when playing and looked it up.

I Then was curious as to getting these "Giant beetle legs". I decided to hunt the QUEEN KLICKNAK (or whatever). I decided to take my ranger, because shes awesome for finding what I want, when I want. I kept seeing and Killing the prince and princess klickklacker bugs, I keep seeing all this crap about the Queen being a slow spawn, so i was looking into it. It seems the QUEEN (who I saw once in the secret area near gates - to enter aquaducts) is on the SAME track with the princess and possibly the Prince klicknik. That makes them potential place holders. This means they are either killed, OR something happens TO them (with them) and then the Queen is spawned. I also noticed, if I hit the princess and kept her alive long enough the prince Klikcer bug would start spawning.

(similar to Conflunk and Zarchoomie in BB - just look at the quest - in essence you kill a goblin shaman, cornflunk spawns on a SUICIDE run, hit him and keep him alive for 10 minutes, THEN the other hlaf of the quest (zarchoomie) spawns))

So I hit her and stood there for like 10 minutes. I am kind of wondering now if the prince and princess MAKE a queen (by doing the bipity bopity)... (but USUALLY get killed while on track) The queen spawns IN the secret area to zone into the Aquaducts, (where the prince and princess seem to go to (cough))

(I have seen her there for CERTAIN with Valdon)

Also North of the secret room, near zone edge (i have seen the prince and princess spawn here. The prince seems to prefer this location, then going to go meet the princess in the secret room. SOMETIMES she will spawn here. They both seem to have this suicide run if they spawn here. Its a South west run at a 45 degree angle, to the road, due south on the road, then dangerously close to the guards. Then they cut in to shack up in the secret room. I think they both have to survive to make QUEEN. Odds are next to nothing.

Another interesting fact. I am not sure if I should post, because its SOMEWHAT and exploit / spoiler. is...

It seems almost NOTHING will go through this secret wall either unless its on that track. Nova starshine or whoever, gnolls, named darkpaws. None of them. I would back in, and instantly the critter would turn tail and walk away as if I zoned. The prince, and princess will walk in. My guess is because its their track they ignore the wall, while other critters not on a track see it as a barrier. I got ONE rat to, but it took me stepping VERY carefully in baby steps. !!! The interesting thing, as they walked away, my arrows still landed !!! Esentually making a free killing zone. If stuff gets ugly you can also just zone into aquaducts....<ahem>

Might want to be added to known bugs / exploits.

Head for Blackburrow. Hunt the gnolls outside until you are a bit higher, or until you get a good group. Then go ahead in to Blackburrow. It is one of my favorite hunting grounds. My faction with the gnolls of Blackburrow can't possibly get any worse. <grin>

Ok, monks should put 90% of there stats in agility when u first start the game. once your lvl 4 or 5, you should go to Blackburrow, which is located in qeynos hills. i went thre till lvl 10 or so but not sure. after that i headed out to Freeport which is way better than qeynos. i killed alegators and some other things like Derv Camps. after that i went to Orc Highway and killed the Orcs running around. then i went to Kunark at level 18 or so, in Kunark i went to Fironia Vie and killed Sabortooths, Sarnaks, and some high lvl skelitons. i left there at lvl 24 but could have stayed there till level 30. that place is tuff. i am almost level 30 so i am now going to kill Hill Giants in Rathe Mountains. you can see me in the rathe Server. any questions PLZ email me

Putrids and Dreads
# May 01 2001 at 11:51 AM Rating: Decent
1. Am level 6 Ranger. How should I fight putrid skeletons or dread corpses best solo?

2. Last night I nearly attached a koandl not knowing about the dreadfull drop in faction standing that would result. Is there a way to avoid such mistakes?

3. Is it out of character for a ranger who serves Tunare to kill beasts such as lions? Even spiders and beetles are part of natural ecology; should a ranger hunt them?
Corrupt Guards
# Feb 27 2001 at 9:46 AM Rating: Default
If you are level 12-14 you should be able to take the *corrupt* guards one-on-one, although make sure they con blue.

If you are amiable with the Guards of Qeynos faction, you can identify corrupt guards by conning them and getting an indifferent or dubious reaction.

The non-corrupt guards (usually conning red) will simply ignore the battle, letting you smite the corrupt guard with no intervention, plus you will gain faction with GuardsofQeynos.

Do be careful to avoid the pair of corrupts guarding the dock/marketplace area.. one of them cast some sort of spell which sent me running and made me attack the lady on the docks.. she whooped me with one solid 338 point THWACK!

I'm a 9th level paladin, and the corrupt guards are pretty obvious. Are you saying that none of the non-corrupt guards will lift a finger to help the corrupt ones?

Do the corrupt guards drop anything, or do you just get some faction and maybe some experience?

# Mar 02 2001 at 4:23 PM Rating: Decent
Umm...The last time I got brave and tried to do of the lieutennants (i forgot the name) who does not con dubious to me, attacked me...I was a 28 ish paladin at the time, and Qeynos is my home...If you are motivated to kill those guards, i recommend you pull them away to an area that is isolated or near a zoneline...

Corporal Lancot I think?

I'm the same, I plan on keeping Q-town my base for a long time to come. It's a nice place. However, at 12th level I'm having some problems finding a nearby place to solo. BB is always crowded. Western Karana either ends up with me running forever to kill a spider, then looking forever for the next target; or trying to pull or find one bandit and getting mauled when they train me. Then again, last time one rooted me, I killed her, then Choon stepped on me. Ouch!

Anyway, haven't you had to range a lot farther to keep gaining in levels?

For faction into Qeynos go to BlackBurrow and kill Gnolls, all the gnolls you can!
Also pick up every gnoll fang that drops and return them to Capt. Tillen in the SQ arena when you are allowed into Qeynos, these will give you even more faction and exp. When you receive the moonstones as a bounty for the fangs, take those to McNeal Jocub in Fish's Ale (tavern in SQ) that will give you faction with Karana Residents and the pally/cleric guilds in town.
