View Full Version : have a problem with shamman to mystic quest

12-16-2004, 05:30 AM
<DIV>I am lvl 18 I have killed numerous bloodsaber adepts but they have not dropped the scroll for me to get past the first part of my hallmark quest.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Has anyone else had problems with this or is it just me?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

I just got 20 (and within a few minutes 21) Mystic this afternoon. I had to kill 5 adepts or so before I got the scroll.Only thing I can say is stick with them till it drops.

<DIV>I got stuck on the proficients just like another shaman.  We bumped into each other in down below then grouped up to get them in Vermin Snye.  We were able to kill the ones in that square room in a team where he was 19 I was 18 pretty easy and got what we needed there.  Maybe a change of location would help.</DIV>

Are you killing them in the vermins snye (not in down below as trap mobs)?

12-16-2004, 12:03 PM
<DIV>I am killing them in VS I am moving around to different locations and they keep spawning on me. (I just run along they pop and attack me even when they were grey to me) i must of killed at least 20 adepts but no luck. I tried solo and grouped but nothing.</DIV> <DIV>I have raised a /bug but have heard nothing as yet</DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<DIV>You are not in VS.  You are in Down Below.  They look similar, but the "pop as you run along, even grays" does NOT happen in VS.</DIV>

<DIV>I've never had it happen to me in VS . . . but it happens all the time in DB.</DIV>

It did happen in VS even with greys. I think that they fixed it recently so, that greys no longer pop to your neck. Pops still happen as far as I know.

<DIV>The bloodsabers DO pop on you in VS.</DIV> <DIV>I am a 21 pally and have escorted 2 shamans to the second part of the mystic quest just to keep the bloodsabers off of them and usually have to kill 3 sets before we get to the access door.</DIV>

<DIV>I spent hours running around VS killing countless numbers of adepts, not a single one dropped. someone else recommended i went to the down below and within a few spawns i had the book. </DIV>

12-22-2004, 11:42 AM
<DIV>I got the adept one in Down Below, too.  One popped on my omw to VS</DIV>

I just did this last night.Went down to VS with 2 dps classes. The adepts do pop on you in VS, and I got jumped when I was on my way to the square room. Had to kill about 20 of the bloodsabers total, and got all 3 scrolls to drop.-NH

<DIV>There are definitely grey adepts that spawn just inside the upper passage in VS. They can pop as Grey ++ or Green +.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>Three nights ago I was in a full group killing all Bloodsabres in the square room and getting the adepts in the passage when we could (it's not always easy to get them, because they pop on people wandering through and get killed). I'd estimate we killed well over a dozen adepts in the session. No Adept scrolls dropped, although I did get the Proficient and Specialist drops.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>The next night I went in solo, popped the two-spawn in the hall (one Adept and one Proficient). The scroll dropped. Took me about five minutes. It did seem very odd to me. I was wondering if it was maybe bugged during the three-hour session, because there's no way it should be that tough.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<DIV>hi, I am a shaman, just obtained lvl.18., and I am in VS. I tried this quest twice , on both occasions no sooner in VS, I am dead. Does it mean I should carry on, and get to lvl. 19 and 20. , before I try this quest. There are many not many other equal lvl. of other classes to group with here. My  wards spells don't seem to protect me much.    I will try one more time. Got the following activated.         ---water--bread--courage--spirit seal--spirit of the bull.,   and will be using ---wards of spirit --grey wind,. and try heroic opportunity when needed.     Well here goes....:mansad:     </DIV>

12-24-2004, 06:21 AM
<DIV>hi.    Yes it's me.      <STRONG><U>WHAT A LOAD OF RUBBISH.</U></STRONG>    Before went into  V.S., I made sure everything was correct, even got an up to-date layout of Vermin's  Snye. Checked direction to the BloodSabres on layout. Needed to go to very top of the steps, because even though both entrances showed a northernly direction on my compass indicator, it's the top entrance one that's  correct.  I died first time in wrong tunnel.  Going by the first alcove on left side( the bottem tunnel the first alcove is on your right) and it carried on to square room(item 12 on layout), and I saw three BloodSabres.  They did'nt  make any attempt to attack me, but all of a sudden I was on the floor -- DEAD --.  Who ever it was, it hit me with a points strike of + 200. ----  Or did a ton rock fall on my head  ---- was that a trap. </DIV> <DIV>         Please can you sort it out.   thank you from a very unhappy priest.   :smileysad: prayers tonight...  </DIV>

<DIV>Vermin's Snye is NOT a solo dungeon.  If you are going in there alone you are going to be dying OFTEN.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>You **NEED** a group in Vermin's Snye.  Especially with level less than 20.</DIV>

12-28-2004, 02:47 AM
<DIV>When I got my scrolls, they came from down below.  I just ran from the room with the mites in it and out one side and did a loop around the halls and got my scrolls in about 9 pops.  Also, dont forget to check the side room adjoining the mite room.  </DIV>

12-28-2004, 05:07 AM
<DIV>I got the first two of three schroll in the Down Below, however I am having trouble with the third one to drop from the Specialist.  </DIV> <DIV>The Mobs materialized out of nowhere and attack from behind.  There is about a 10 min between them.  </DIV> <DIV>Can I get  the third from the DB or do I need to team up and get it in the VS area?</DIV> <DIV> </DIV>

<DIV>The Mystic Hallmark is horribly difficult to get to. My Necromancer just had to talk to an NPC in Freeport that teleported me to my instance. My Mystic had to run ALL the way through a dungeon with aggro casting mobs to reach his instance (VS). Even when I grouped with a level 25 and all the mobs were grey, they still aggroed me and killed me. I died like 5 times trying to get to the instance, and defeated the instance the 1st try.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>VERY wacko if you ask me. The dev that made this hallmark needs to be slapped.</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>EDIT- One star me if you believe in keeping it in the family.</DIV><p>Message Edited by alerka on <span class=date_text>01-08-2005</span> <span class=time_text>05:44 PM</span>

<DIV>HI,   I am in Veremin's Syne. On the first part of the quest, have been completed, but second part, had problems in trying to reach Sir Wimbley's tomb. I thought with this new patch today, I'll have another go again. Things okay, got to door to tomb, having entered I am frozen, in not able to move forward or backward.  I have cancelled all spells selected, except food and water, still unable to move.   Can any-one help, have killed the first mod there. I am graded shaman lvl 20, with a debt of 94%.  Again, can any-one help.</DIV>

01-07-2005, 02:32 AM
<DIV>hi.   Ref my last.   I managed to leave, even though I could'nt move foreward or backward. This surprise me, as I went thru. several ways to try to move, and also I first tried to take me home to my flat, but there was a wait time.   In the end , after writing my last, I gave it another  try at going to my flat. It worked.         </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>In time spent inside the door, I check the chat, I was informed  I quote, " You can not go back, you will need to finish the quest."???.  Well I got back using the Abillities "Call to Qeynos".  If even after killing 2 mods that came to me. </DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I went back into Vermin's Syne, and got inside the door. This time I was able to move. I carried on with a walkthru. from someone on a link forum.  Who said they did this quest solo.(rubbish). Banitman is correct, you need a group to carry out the quest.    Will a group take it on, if they know about what I had read, regarding not been able to go back out through the entrance.  Would you join my group. My spirit shard is back in there so I must go back in. Cross fingers.  </DIV>

<DIV>If you're talking about taking a group through Wimbly's tomb, I was under the impression that one had to do it alone...</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>I found it challenging at level 18, but very doable. You just have to take your time and do things slowly. I finished it in about forty-five mintues without a single death (though my first zone in, I did get stuck in the door. Irritating.)</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>The end of the Mystic quest is easy if you just take your time. The walk-through I used was extremely good (though instead of avoiding the mobs on the sides, I killed them)</DIV> <DIV> </DIV> <DIV>But, as I said, I don't think taking a group in there is an option. I may be wrong though.</DIV>
