View Full Version : Class Armor Quests 1-5 **Spoiler**

11-30-2004, 03:31 AM
<DIV>OK bare with me here. Im typing this fast so I can get to work. I read the last post dealing with these quests and there seemed to be a lot of unanswered questions. So here it is. Cut and dry....</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Quest 1 - Talk with Selwynn Oakheart in South Qeynos. If you are coming from North Qeynos, she is directly in front of you when you zone in under the tree. She will give you your first quest which requires you to kill Caltorsis Clerics and Sabertooth Elders. The elders are part of a dynamic spawn and can be tough to find if you dont know what you are looking for. Go to the fields just north of Blackburrow and find the Gnoll Tent dynamic spawns. They should have Sabertooth Battlers and Sabertooth Runecasters surrounding them in 4 different groups of 4-5. Bring friends because you will need to CLEAR all four groups before the first one pops again. Once the last group is clear, given that you did it fast enough, the Sabertooth Elders along with the Sabertooth Tormenters (Lvl 20 PLATE armor quest mobs). Continue to clear those until done. Remember this is a dynamic spawn because of the TENT that is in the center of it. If there is no tent... there is no elders. The Caltorsis Clerics are a pain in the butt because they are mostly invisible until you either get the right angle on them, or until you are dang near standing on them. They spawn randomly throughout the Ruins Of Caltorsis, mostly in the center of the field and down by the docks. Return to Selwyn once you are done and recieve your gloves. *REMEMBER* you have to hail her again inorder to get the second quest.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Quest 2 - Hulking Stalkers are found in the hills above Windstalker Village. Near Holly Windstalkers grave. They wander around with the Giant Kodiaks (Plate armor quest mobs). The Bloodfang Broodtenders are found at the base of the waterfall in Blackburrow. When you jump down, find your way to dry land and move up the LEFT tunnel. There is a spawn of three Broodtenders, each of which have quite a few hatchling friends with them. Last is the Plaguebringer Acolytes. These are also a dynamic spawn like the Sabertooth Elders. The Ruins of Caltorsis (where you found the clerics) have dynamic spawns that are centered by a skeleton on a stick. Foci of Death (or decay, cant remember). Clear all the Restless Caltorsites around this as you did the Battlers and Rune Casters. The Acolytes will spawn when its clear. **DO NOT** attack the Acolytes or stand near enough that they will agro UNTIL they have summoned their pets. If they dont have pets, they will yell for help and the encounter will be broken. Once again return to Selwynn and claim your prize. You get a nice Forearm piece. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Quest 3 - This quest is going to cost you some commitment and time invested. Seeings how SoE hasnt fixed the pathing bugs in Stormhold yet, this quest proves to be quite the difficult one. I personally had a 2 group raid. We wiped 2 times because of the invisible mobs that we couldnt target. The were so fittingly named Unknown instead of Feign Zombies or whatever else was hitting us. Im assuming this is because of the fact that they were in the walls hitting us. Other than that problem, single groups CAN accomplish this given they have some members that know what they are doing. The Strong boxes are found down on Level 2 in the Library. If you go down the spiral steps with the Ghoulbane type glowing sword on it and find your way to the Atrium its very simple from there on out. Go straight (west) through the 4 way Atrium until you come to a "T" intersection. Make a right. You will see some white colored Leeches that are NON aggro mobs. Take your first right again and there is a little open area that has a small stage type setting. On either side of the stage there is Feign Zombies. The right set is a grouped set of 2. They have 1 carrot on top and are yellow to a lvl 21. To the left is a set of 2 solo zombies. Both have 2 carrots on top. Kill those then find the gate in the floor near the stage. This will take you to the Library. Inside the library to the left there is a yellow conned BOOK that has 2 carrots... You can avoid aggroing him if you please but he sits near the door to the box room. Inside the box room there is 6 boxes. A group of 3, a single, and a group of 2. If you have a single group you will get credit for each box you kill. If you choose to RAID you will only get 1 (ONE) credit per ENCOUNTER...so if its a group of 3, you only get 1 credit. Keep going back and forward between these two areas until you are done with the quest. There is more zombies in the general area but you have to go through some Crusaders, and Cavaliers which are used in the Plate armor quest. All these can be found on the way to the temple of stormhold. Once again, return to Selwynn and claim your new boots. If you did the quest that is started INSIDE stormhold. Requiring you to get something from the temple, armory, and library, you might find the boots reward from that actually is nicer than your armor quest boots. But hey... its nice to have a full set of armor that has the same name. Then you look better too /wink. (This item was wearable at lvl 21)</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Quest 4 - This is very self explanitory. Just remember the Crypt of Betrayal is a very dangerous zone that is entered through 2 zone spots in Vermins' Snye. It is very easy to get adds, and its very easy to avoid them as well. DO NOT USE AE spells when fighting the beetles. You will draw unwanted adds very fast. This is probably the easiest TO FIND quest. As for difficulty of mobs, that depends on your level and your groups compitence.  Talk to Selwynn and claim your new shoulder piece. (This item was wearable by me at lvl 22)</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Quest 5 - To Thundering Steppes we go. The land of everything from what is believed to be the old Sirens Grotto Ruins to giant orc-like skeletons. Sabertooth Diviners are going to be the first thing you find. Right near Qeynos Tower 1, in the crater. Too easy. Unearthed Settlers along with the Corpse Feeders, are found near the village that begins the Valley of the Undead. These will be fairly easy, easy enough to solo given you are the right lvl. Just watch out for the occasional add. They can get tough if there is too many. The Swarm Beetles can be found in the planes and on the western beach. I suggest using the western beach. Less adds. Still just as tough but less adds. Return to claim your new Leg armor. <--- I personally havnt completed this one. I am in the middle of doing it now. (Stupid work claiming all my time) I know there is a quest 6 for a tunic. This is just hear-say so far. I usually dont believe much until Ive seen it myself. So I will leave the details open for quest 6, that way someone else can fill them in or so I can fill them in once Im done. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I hope this answered all the questions anyone had. I know I was asking the same questions when I accidentally stumbled apon the quest unknowingly. Im on Everfrost server if anyone needs my assistance, given that Im not busy. I will be more than willing to help.</FONT></DIV> <DIV></FONT></DIV> <DIV>-Tally Whaker, Kerran Mystic of Everfrost.</FONT></DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV><p>Message Edited by Nightbow on <span class=date_text>11-30-2004</span> <span class=time_text>09:49 AM</span>

Nice walkthrough.Errands VI-10 highland huntresses-12 steelhoof mystics-8 griffawns-Shadowdash, named GriffonWell the good news is, everything can be found in one area of TS. The bad news is, huntresses are way too rare. Griffawns are soloable and fly around in the SW field, if you've camped centaurs at the bandit camp you probably know where this is. Follow the path from Antonica until there's a big crater ("Mirror") on your right, then turn left and you're there. These griffawns are like level 23, easy solo for anyone that would be doing this quest.Highland huntresses are the worst part by far. Any of the cats (highland matriarch, patriarch, stalker) are placeholders. Cats roam all over the field, but seem concentrated around the knoll out from the giant valley, also there are a few by the gravesite for the Whereabouts... quest. All cats are group 23-25^^ (or equivilent combinations).Be careful while hunting cats, somewhere out near the middle (a bit north, I think) on the rim of a crater is a bunch of large rocks. Easily distinguishable from the surroundings, that is Shadowdash's spawn point, he's triggered when you go near. Taken down with a rag-tag group of 20-25, comes with two small adds.After a couple hours of camping two or three possible Steelhoof Mystic spawns, we finally checked the camp by the giants <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />. Lo and behold, a solid 2-4 spawns per cycle plus one or two that can come with the Captain. Just get a centaur group and this part is easy.Have fun... heh

Nice JobThanks for the info.

<DIV>Thanks so much for this<img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Does anyone have any screenshots of this armor? Does it look different then basic leather/chain?</DIV>

<DIV>Here is a picture of me wearing quest armor 1-4. Im finished with 5 and almost done with 6 now but im still 22 so I cant wear the legs yet. The legs Im wearing right now dropped of the diviners needed for quest 5, and the BP was dropped off the named beetle in Crypt of Decay. Both very nice items in my opinion.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>----> <A href="http://eq2players.station.sony.com/en/pplayer.vm?characterId=114864111" target=_blank>http://eq2players.station.sony.com/en/pplayer.vm?characterId=114864111</A> <----</DIV><p>Message Edited by Nightbow on <span class=date_text>12-01-2004</span> <span class=time_text>03:05 PM</span>

<DIV>Yah the armor is a very cool yellow-gold kind of color which is unique from other types of armor you can get at this level. I'm halfway through Part 5 and will hopefully get it knocked out soon.</DIV>

12-03-2004, 01:52 AM
<DIV>Great post, thanks!</DIV> <DIV><BR>I can't wait till I can start mine!</DIV>

<DIV>Need some help finding the swarm beetles for Part V.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Checked the plains and western beach (at least what I assume those locals are) and have not seen a single one <img src="/smilies/9d71f0541cff0a302a0309c5079e8dee.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Can anyone give some pretty specific location hints on where these are found? They are all I need to finish Part 5</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Ghartan</DIV>

12-03-2004, 07:37 AM
<DIV>Ive only found one group on the western beach. They are all together in a group of 6. There is a hole filled with mucky green water that they fly in and around. I just sat there for about an hour or so and grabbed them all without a single add. The ones in the planes are out in the middle of the farm type land that the griffons fly all around. Kinda few and far in between. It takes a little longer to get them, but its well worth not dying in my opinion.</DIV>

12-03-2004, 07:25 PM
<DIV>Heyas, </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>first of all, thx for this spoiler.

Stay up off of the beach but run along beside the beach and there are 2 seperate spawns of 6 to a group swarm beetles. They are on the eastern beach right outside of antonica zone.</DIV>

<DIV>Thanks NightBow!  Great info!</DIV>

12-08-2004, 02:02 AM
<DIV>Thank you so much for taking the time to describe the quests and the locations of the mobs so clearly.  I know it took a great deal of time to figure out the quests initially, and more time after that to share the information...thank you again.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

12-08-2004, 03:42 AM
<DIV>Great Information!  Thanks for taking the time to type this out on the boards.</DIV>

01-18-2005, 09:20 PM
Anyone Know where to start the next set of armor quests? or is there one?

01-18-2005, 11:24 PM
<DIV>Regarding the acolytes, you have to find one of the "foci of decay" spears in teh ground, then you have to clear all the restless around that spear before they respawn, like how you had to do the sabertooth elders.  </DIV>

I am almost done with AQ5. Have a few diviners and the beetles to go.I have been told by our guild that AQ6 is undesirable because it kills faction with the centurs. Anyone else heard this comment?

01-28-2005, 09:22 PM
<DIV>Grusum,</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>You do have to kill centaurs for AQ 6.  And killing even one will make them KoS.  Keep that in mind before you start on it. :smileyhappy:</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Coren</DIV> <DIV>29 Mystic</DIV>
