Field of Bone

Quick Facts





Level Range:
1 - 25

Send a correction
A dry area located in the northeastern area of Kunark, the Field of Bone gets its name from the former reservoir of Cabilis which is now home to bones and wandering undead, remnants of a battle in years past.

The area, while bone dry itself, is surrounded by plantlife and wetlands. The Swamp of No Hope lies to the south while thick forestry sits to the east and to the west. The cliff on the north end leads to the Kunark coastline of Timorous Deep.

Long before the elves discovered Kunark, a great war took place between the iksars and Ring of Scale.The final battle in this war occurred in the sky above what is now the Field of Bone: Jaled'Dar, leader of the Ring of Scale, and Emperor Ganak of the Iksars fought with one another until they were both destroyed. To this day, Jaled'Dar's bones remain in the barren field.

New high-level skellies have appeared in the FoB "Pit".

All named 'a lesser chaosbone skeleton'.

Most hits in the 1500+ range with a few 1800 hits.

Conning yellow to my 71 zerk and LB to 80 cleric.

Killed 5-6 of them and did not get a single drop of any sort, no plat either.

Presumably part of Orcs in Commonlands, Gnolls in Qeynos Hills, etc. storyline. Did not get a named to spaw however if you kill enough I'm sure they would.

Noticed: 11th March '08
Appeard: 10th March '08 (not yet comfirmed)

Edit: Named popping near dragon bone head in the middle of Pit after killing numerous regular skellies. His name is Chaos Lord Relevak, even con to level 80, hits for 2k, turn into an Aneuk when dead. Dropped a 265 HP mask and 2 50% exp pots. (credit to Rune_TR on SOE forums)

Talk to Deckarn Mystglade in Dreadlands to get the quest to kill the new mobs, no idea what the rewards is though : / He asks you to visit 5 fairly low level zones and locate and eliminate the disturbance.

The bonecrawler hatchlings & Burynai-bane Spiders located in the small crypt buried in a one of the western hills (Entrance LOC: -294, +2664) have SIX SECOND spawn time.

The loot is still atrocious, with an average of 1 in 4 spiders carrying Spiderling Silk, and even if they do it's usually just one. Regardless, when you kill 80 spiders in two minutes, it more than makes up for it.

and an undead jester..

A warrens is a network of caves occupied by a critter. In real life, rabbits make warrens.

# Apr 09 2004 at 11:14 AM Rating: Decent
I needed to get me some spiderling silks, so I went down into the warrens and began a spiderling slaughter. I noticed something interesting: When I chased a fleeing spider into a wall, he would... vanish. Is this from bad collision-detection (they jump through the wall end up running around "outside" the zone), or do the spiders actually despawn?

Ok here is the deal. if you wanna know about the crypts
there are about 4 or so of them scattered about FoB. 1 of them is the spider warrens. inside there is a TON of spiderlings. if you are around lvl 5 and have a 4 or so person gropu , go in there and make a killing. the BurynaiBane spider spawns in there. also another crypt near the spider warrens is empty. some guiulds use it for meetings and duling fun and such but other than that it's empty
Now the last but DEFFINATLY not least cave is thwe one neer the beach. go thru the clifs on to the beach and go left and keep going. Soon you'll see a hole. If you're a lvl 40 or so go in and explore. but ppl below lvl 30 DO NOT GO IN!!!
THis is what i named Keroshe's hideout and Kerosh BlackHand a Iksar bandit lives in there. he is in the warrior iks quests.
he's around lvl 30 but there are pariahs and nastys in there.BE CAREFUL. thats alll about the crypts thanks for reading.\

Had me a Barbarian Shaman leveling in FoB for 6 levels (started there at 9), good fighting in the corner near Kaesora (where everything's marching back and forth almost to the Swamp of No Hope zone line). I stayed far from the East Cabilis entrance ... VERY far from it... was bound within the Kaesora ruins area, and zoned to the Swamp whenever I needed to escape a really bad situation.

Of the things to kill there, few do much for raising faction with many -- if any -- of the different NPC factions within East (much less West) Cabilis. Simply wasn't worth the trouble for me, not with that character.

I stuck with strictly killing everything within my current level, and destroyed silver, copper, and items I couldn't put to good use immediately. I left to train in Dodge as soon as I hit 15, but the XP was really decent and I can't remember having died more than maybe once the whole time there.

Just use some gp for cloth armor untill you can get to a place where you can start making money(get used to being poor). Once you can fight in PC is about when some money you can use will start dropping. If you really get desperate you could always kill off skellys by the mass and sell bonechips(yeah yeah i know, you need em, but if you really need the money for armor and such its a small sacrifice in time). untill you get cash your stuck with cloth (darn verant couldnt put in a caster class armor quest).

scaled wolves
# Jan 06 2002 at 5:25 PM Rating: Decent
When fighting in the dried reservoir, be very careful avout scaled wolves.

They are tougher than most of the critters at the "low" end of the reservoir and rather agressive.

The main problem with them is their large agro radius when you fight one. Other scalies will come running from quite far away and there is a good probablitiy of being trained.

I got killed twice today due to this (although exceptional bad luck was also involved).

I think they fixed the socialism of the scalies in FoB. Im pretty sure they dont even agroe at all if your attacking one of their brethren. Biggest agro threat is the large/giant scorps, no matter what if you get close to them theyll agro so just watch your back.
Strange tunnel
# Oct 29 2001 at 7:59 AM Rating: Default
Me and a buddy decided to explore the beach at ramp +637, +1363. What we came across were two things: 1)a ghost wandering the beach that kicked the crap out of my friend (26lvl monk) and 2)a bizarre tunnel that has 2 nasty marauders that kicked the crap out of me (12lvl sk) and nearly got my buddy. What is the deal with the tunnel and the ghost???

RE: Strange tunnel
# Oct 29 2001 at 8:30 AM Rating: Excellent

The tunnel is the spawning location of Kerosh Blackhand. He's part of the quest for a piece of Trooper scale armour.

Here is the URL for Kerosh's page. Go have a look.

Dunno about the ghost. All I ever saw were the servants of Sythrax, staring sadly out to sea.

Hope that helps a little.

Underground attack at fob
# Oct 19 2001 at 8:25 AM Rating: Default
I know its been said before but its worth repeating for newbies...

When hunting at the reservoir/arena area in fob, its coomon to pull near the ramps, when the mob takes a straight line to you if it runs into the side wall of the ramps it will go thru it and attack you from underground.!

When pulling to the ramps (or banks at the side ) take a wide line in so the mob doesnt cut the corner .

Good hunting.

He is referring to the pennance quest you have to do in case you lose your newbie item. That being a shackle for monks.

Here is the write up for the quest.

As I remember it...our first shackle quest is where you have to collect goblin scout beads and a few other things and combine them in the bag you're given to get shackle of rock? It's been a long time since I've done that quest myself.

This should clear some things up. The penance quest is to replace your starting item(shackle, robe, whatever else....). So seing as the label of your post you still have your starting shackle(dust i believe). The 1st shackle quest is that given by master raska(the one mentioned by oukamii). So in other words your not getting anything for the combine because you already have it.
RE: monk 1st shackle quest
# Sep 07 2006 at 8:43 AM Rating: Decent
Yeah, unless you really destroyed your newbie bracer the main reason to do this is to get another bracer. they are lore - but, if one bracer is the shackle of stone, you can do the penance quest and get another bracer. Eventually, you'll need to turn in the better bracer, so many do it this was so they can persue the epic but still have a Shackle. It works, did it last night, and not even 1 2HB improvement for all of that :(

Unless it's been changed, you will no longer be hidden if you initiate a trade with the guard. Sneak, on the other hand, works like a charm.

Therefore, just hide/sneak until you are safely behind him and then start turning in chips.

Bring lots of bone chips and good luck to you!

You can kill Iksar Bandits, Maurauders, Brigands, Footpads, Manslayers etc. in the Field of Bone to bring up your factions with us.
You can kill Sarnaks and goblins in lake of ill omen or Froglocks in the Swamp of No Hope and Goblins are also in Warsilk Woods. I'm not sure how to check your factions though or how many you have to kill, but I do know that it's a lot! You may want any Iksar friends you make help you out if you need to go into Cabilis itself.

But much slower, bone chips is a way many people try to get faction with cabilis. Another good quest for faction is the explorer knives quest. Although bone chips are most liked because the knives brings down your faction with firiona vie, storm gaurd, and emerald warriors.

# Jul 04 2001 at 4:58 PM Rating: Default
Hail all,

I was curious, I am a dark elf enchanter who worships Innoruuk, I've hunted in Lake of Ill Omen for a few levels and I've hunted on the Overthere for the better part after hitting levels 30+, my question is this...I would like to know the name of the NPC I hafta turn in the multitudes of bone chips in order to gain some more faction with the lizzies (I know what most of you are saying, I should just score my Illusion:Iksar to ease any burden...but as I mention before I worship Innoruuk :P ) besides, I would like to do this in my unaltered form as a dark elf...

So, as a recap...who do I turn in the bonechips to in the Field of Bone?
[If anyone on the Nameless has a spare Illusion:Iksar scroll they wouldn't mind selling to me, shoot me a tell =)]

The only bad thing is I seem to get REALLY bad exoeriance from everthing. I was curious if any type of enemy would be better to gain EXP against. (I;ve noticed that scorps don't give me much).

RE: LVL 10 Warrior LFS

It is time to change your strategy a bit. Also, a better weapon couldn't hurt. You want to level? Do some quests. No, you might not level too fast, but at least you can work on getting some better weapons and stuff. I know I leveled at least once doing quests. You DO have your Partisan Pike, right? RIGHT?
Another thing to do to level up really fast is to group. I know, you kil something and the EXP divides between the players, right? Well, this is true, but you also have the oppertunity to go up against higher level enemies. Trust me on this, when I am trying to level, I go in groups, and average 1 level a day.
But a group is not the only thing... You have to know where to hunt. Kurns tower is the best place. All undead. Bone chips sell very good. And you can stay in there and level until you get about 20 or so... I am 15 and still fighting in there.
Lastly, you want to have a pretty even group. Try to stay with level 10s. If you have lower levels in your group, don't go below 7, or above 11. Highwer levels, below 10, or above 15. Good luck.
