Neriak is the city of Dark Elves. This is the Foreign Quarter, the western-most part of the city which is directly connected to Nektulos Forest.

Many outsiders have set up shop and home here. Most notably, this area served as a temporary home for the trolls of Grobb after they were ousted from their city by the Frogloks of Marr. They've since moved out, but a few of their brethren have remained.

Human bard Rallos Zek KoS to guards
# Aug 30 2013 at 3:51 AM Rating: Decent
Just a heads up for any who were curious - a human bard of Rallos Zek deity will be KoS to the guards here.

I wanted a bard for my evil race groups and Neriak travel is not possible from the get-go. Havent tried with agnostic or with any spell modifiers. Would appreciate any info regarding human bards being/becoming non-KoS to Neriak guards.

Everytime I enter the Forein Quarter I get this message:

Nalissi K'Ten says "Hey you! Find your way to the gates and let's talk. I have something you might like."
I've checked everywhereI could think of, in the Forein Quarter, the Commons and Nektulos, I couldn't find any NPC with that name. Anybody knows where I can find him/her?

I had the same kind of message in Rivervale, asking me to meet by the bank. Again I couldn't locate him with the Find function but Rivervale being an open area I quickly spotted the guy, not by the bank, but by the Misty Thicket tunnel, faceing the Priest of Discord. He gave me a backpack and a riddle book, each riddle gives hints for an item, and when I find all 10 I get a great reward, but that quest isn't listed in Allakhazam database so I'm left clueless...

Is there a way to report a new quest to the webmaster?

This is the scavanger hunt for the anniversary - your reward is a potion that grants double XP for 30 min. I suggest doing the quest, and hurry - ends soon

I am a DE chanter and in foreign quater I was looking for something. ( cant remember but thats not important lol ) And I stumbled into the arena place. I sat down and a guy named Capee said "That was not a very intelligent thing to do" and started punching me! I didnt think I would need my pet t go in a home city so I didnt have one. He killed me in 3 or 4 punches and I had good faction with them. Then when I went to go get my corpse I thought he had attacked me by mistake so I wasnt too scared but then he jumped me and his friend did too. Together they killed me in about 1 hit each. I de-lvled =(. Anyone know why I got attacked?

Was he a player or NPC? Sounds like you got attacked by a Player Killer and his buddy...

Unfortunate, but a REAL threat anytime you enter a PvP (player versus player area)
Guild Trainers?

Does anyone know if there are any guild trainers in the foreign quarter? It would make sense to put some ogre/troll trainers there, wouldn't it?

I just recently created a shadow kinght character as a dark elf. I searched for over an hour and couldnt find my guild! I finally found it after someone told me it was is the necro guild, which i had found befor. This got me mad, but im still gonna try to figure out the city. Are there any good quests for someone under lvl 10, cause all the quests they show say you have to bee high levels! let me know if anyone finds any
#REDACTED, Posted: Jun 17 2002 at 8:43 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) dont do the quests they suck. all low level quests do. why would you want something that had the same ac as leather but with like 1 str added? and neriak isnt that hard to figure out really.

I'm a Troll SK, and while my faction is indifferent to dubious in the guild, I would like to be able to do quests there. Any ideas on how to raise it, or even what the name of their faction is?

Just because an area is not on a map, doesnt mean that its not important. There are SEVERAL areas in Norath that are "Secret Areas". These hidden areas sometimes have NPC's, and other places are just a place to remove yourself from the Newbies (beggers) and work on a tradeskill, or just hold a conversation in tells in a safe area. I like my secret little havens, not a bad place to work on tradeskills too.

mysterious firepot
# Feb 25 2001 at 9:21 PM Rating: Default
There is a firepot, or brazier, in neriak 3rd gate, when clicked it says you cannot open this door without a key, no one i know, knows what it does, its not a bug, i asked a gm about it, a gm said it is a secret of the game, and it is usable by players.
RE: mysterious firepot
# Jun 12 2004 at 12:12 AM Rating: Decent
The mystrious firepot that gives a locked door message is one of the many old world firepot portals in the original home town zones, as far as I know you can't enter the firepots from the home city side to enter the teleport room, but if you know what's up, you can find that teleport room that is in the bottom of an ocean somewhere on norrath. I don't want to spoil it for you, but wander around a bit, do some exploring and you may very well uncover the secret of the firepots.

Have fun and get to know your way around this massive world and it's many secrets.

Unsure to where this goes. However the one in Qeynos Cat goes to Toxx and the one in Toxx goes to Qeynos Cat.

I guess this will lead to another town (necromancer spot no doubt since the one in Toxx is in the necro hut and leads to the area near the bertoxxulous shrine).

Some rumours say Lfay but the pot there does not give you a message about not having a key. It does say you are too far away though if you try clicking it from a distance.

*My search continues*

Can anyone please tell me how to get to the library in Neriak 3rd Gate please. I only now where to find the Cleric,Necromancer,and Rogue Guild can someone please help me.

RE: Book of Turmoil
# Jan 15 2002 at 12:32 PM Rating: Decent
If you have found the Rouge Guild and the Necro Guild, the Liabrary is a cinch. Heading out from the Rouge Guild go straight through the archway directly straight ahead from the exit of the Guild. There should be a door on your left, that is a Tailoring Merchant. Pass the door through another archway, and voila....those marble stairs with columns is the liabrary.

Good Luck

Well, you have to get to the Third gate zone as you already found out..
When you zone into Neriak Commons, cross the bridge over the water, then hang a left right after the bridge just past the Entrance to the Neriak Underground (Bank and merchants), keep walking straight and pass between two small buildings, the opening in between them is the zone entrance to the Third Gate zone.. Also check out:
They have some good maps to help you out as well on this..

Good luck,

RE: Manchu
# Jun 23 2001 at 5:52 PM Rating: Default
yes i found out and it is in the timorus deep. here is what i found:

Timorous Deep Teleportation Room Guide

The room is located at loc -12260, 4665, -277 within Timorous Deep.

Be careful when you enter here, as there is a dragon-like creature named Faydedar that is very often spied in the area. He is KOS to all, and /con's red to level 51 characters, so be very careful.

The listing of the pots and where they take you is:

North Left:(fire on floor) to Grobb (entrance)
North Center:(6 side gray) to Oggok (entrance)
North Right:(6 side tall) to Erudin (near dock)
East Left:(6 side gray) to Neriak Commons (entrance)
East Center:(4 side wood) to Greater Faydark (under Kelethin)
East Right:(6 side rust) to Northern Felwithe (entrance)
South Left:(Brown box) to Halas(near dock)
South Center:(Dark with blue) to East Freeport (on dock)
South Right:(tall gold vase) to Cabilis West (entrance)
West Left:(White marble) to South Kaladim (entrance)
West Center:(Lava Lamp) to Akannon (entrance)
West Right:(torch stand) to Rivervale (entrance)

i know waht the pot is for

its a secret teleportation device. In the ocean of tears deep underwater there is a secret room. It is guarded by some dragon-like creature nearby so it is hard to get to. inside there are lots of firepots or jars or what ever u want to call them. U can use the different jars in this room to teleport you to many different areas of the game. I do not think it is a two-way system but not sure. I really dont think there is a key. Maybe gms have keys for the two way system. How us normal players can get them if they exist i am unsure. this room might be in the timorus deep i will check in and post its location.
RE: Manchu
# Feb 21 2001 at 9:06 AM Rating: Default
You're probably not clicking the rock, but rather the fire pot standing there. Officially, I don't know of anyone who holds the key to it, nor do I know what would happen if you successfully unlocked the firepot.

It should be noted that this is not the only locked firepot in Norrath. There is one in Qeynos catacombs, for example.

One thing that comes to mind when pondering this fire pot is the fire pot room, or the Combine Teleporters, in Timorous Deep. In this room beneath the sea in the SW corner of the zone is a room with 12 clickable fire pots, that each teleports you to a certain city in Norrath upon clicking it.

The Combine Teleporters are not locked, but according to urban legends the locked firepots are parts of a similar teleportation system, that would enable the dark races to travel smoothly between non-KOS cities - could they somehow be unlocked, that is, through questing or the like. The sceptics, on the other hand, claim that the locked fire pots, whatever their purpose is, were never fully implemented by Verant, and thus they serve no purpose. There are several other theories as well.

Believe what you want. I couldn't care less anymore *grin*

Ok, just went at it with the lockpicks (24 DE rogue), and it said, surprise surprise, "This lock cannot be picked." If anyone has any other leads as to how to crack this from the outside, please post.

raising faction

How do I raise my faction with the cleric guild? I want do that Initiate symbol quest but my faction is not high enough because Im a troll, what do I do?
RE: raising faction
# Nov 03 2000 at 12:49 PM Rating: Default
Ah my large friend. To raise faction with our tmeple it is easy. There are several ways you may go.

1. In Freeport and in Grobb look for a female Dark Elf in shiny armor. I don't remember her name but she is the sister of the guild master of the temple. She can give you a note to take to him.

2. Kill the halflings in Nektulos. Or should I say slaughter the halflings in Nektulos.

3. Save the halfling caps and grass amulets. Turn these into our leader. Yes, I know, the amulets are for the Initiate Symbol. Eventually you will get rewarded. The cap quest comes after you deliver the note from number one above.

I hope that helps you out, they are all fairly easy to do. Only drawback is you are cutting ties to halflings.

The Gobbler

I have heard The Gobbler is in this zone. He is part of the froglok meat quest given by Chef Dooga in Oggok. He is not listed here and I cannot find him. Can anyone help?

Hes in there,,walk round till you see a sign pointing right troll...left ogre. go troll way and hes in the meat shop..He is an ogre,guess the sign is wrong, not a shock.
RE: The Gobbler
# Sep 10 2000 at 7:13 PM Rating: Decent
The Gobbler is in the Neriak Foreign Quarter (in the troll/Ogre area).

As you come down the ramp take a right (sign points to the Troll area). In the corner of the area there is a door (opposite the inn).. The Gobbler is in there.

Just give him the Froglok legs and you get Faction adjustment for Neriak Ogres and some small coins. Uncommon return is

Ogre Meat Cleaver. 1HS (axe) 5/35ish... only 1hs weapon i've seen usable by Ogre Shaman. Can go in your range slot as well. Very handy for reducing SoW requests if your in a newbie zone. Carry one of these in primary and parrying dagger in secondary... and you have Instant Duel Wielding Shaman!!! Looks very cool.

Rare return on this quest is:

Ogre Butcher Gloves

AC 1 sv Disease and poison +25!

very nice item.. one of the best resist pieces in the game.vital for any duel against another shaman.

Good luck.. the quest is worth it for the faction adjustment alone.... especially if you bind here and can just run one way to Oggok then gate back.
