Short-version for those wondering if you can do this questline on a low-level adventurer is "Yes". The longer version can be <a href="http://eq2.eqtraders.com/articles/article_page.php?article=g657&menustr=115000000000" target="_blank" class="externalLink" rel="nofollow">found here</a>.

Really Nice Write Up!<br /> <br />How did things with the Nurgan Goblins go? Its been so long I forget if only the ones inside the mines are agro or not.

There was one death as I ignored my own warning (that was Death 1) and tried to do Home Fires for the firewood before I had enough faction to be out of KOS. Otherwise, I did a lot of flying and diving to get at quest updates on the path where those roamers are. On live, it "should" be relatively easy to find someone willing to kill off the pathing guards if you don't want to do a lot of swooping <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" alt="Smile" /> You can sequence the quests so that you only have to run around the camp for the firewood and sharpening stones after you have enough faction to be non-KOS.

Thank you for testing! I did run through this all with a level 5 but occasionally other designers add high level critters after I've placed my quest things, so the check is appreciated <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" alt="Smile" /> And yes, it is intentional that you may want to think about the order you do the goblin quests in Fens of Nathsar. That was intentional because I'm mean that way (and like to exercise people's brains) <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" alt="Smile" />

Swoop in, grab one/two updates and fly high as quick as I can. Except for when I <i>think</i> there is enough time for that <i>one more update</i> and doesn't work out <img src="/images/smilies/tongue.gif" alt="Tongue" />

I will do it with Niami's write up in mind. used to have a level 25 locked wizard 100 sage I ran through all the tradeskill quests with, but wanted to run the wizard for adventuring I remember beta testing DoV tradeskill with her and doing the gnoll quest before you put the ladder in the water and and before she had flight. managed to do it with no deaths by patiently watching the paths of the mobs. hmm it maybe I should buy another characters slot on live and level up a crafter locking at 10 adventure just to see if I can run through all the epic sig and heritage quests with her at that level.

Thanks for the info Niami, my guild is long short of that so I was not aware of the GL 101 limit on writs <img src="/images/smilies/smile.gif" alt="Smile" />
