I just ran the adv. solo and nothing other than guild stat items dropped and a few coins. i know its solo so i didnt expect omg gear yet you would think something a BOX would drop off the names and nothing. if we want toons running adv solo we might want to have something drop other than some coin and some guild stat items

just my 2 cents

While running the zone I was thinking about the SS solo and how only the last name would drop actual loot, but when I got to him there was nothing.

In the captain's room there is a clicky chest on the right that requires a key, well I looked around and never could find anything obvious, maybe this was a body drop I just missed? Maybe there is a quest to go into this zone from a hub I just havnt found yet?

Also in my searching I discovered that the trash eventually respawns. I'm not sure if this is intended or not, but it was kind of odd for an instance.

Same thing happen to me as well. I even found a shinney in the but when. I picked it up it the shinney was not in my back pack.

But the xpac has only been on the server for less than 24 hours. So I see a fix some times in the near future. Or I at least hope so. If not I see no one running the zones if they dont get some kind of reward for doing so.

P.S Just as a side note every Solo instance I ran end in the same way no reward

I soloed this zone last night (Illusionist) and I enjoyed the forward progress of the zone however the names could be a little stouter, and the final named was almost the simplest fight in the zone.

1) Loot tables have not been put in yet.

2) Believe mobs are respawning on purpose for the moment for testing purposes.

3) no idea about clicky chest but probably either a quest or a mob drop (such as a shard chest). They did say there was going to be a new way to use white shards so who knows.

You access it from a dock (I think in Obol plains but I'm not positive since I was called to the area and didn't pay attention).  I just  know it was a dock and there was a bell to click to zone to the boat.

It appears the captives have some quest in mind.  Killed everything I could find, but nothing seemed to make him think he was saved.

I ran this one with my lvl 92 SK. Everything in there was a cakewalk including the Tempest.

In its current state the zone is a lot easier than the Ascension.

The clickable chest is for Shades of Drinal: Dreadcutter at World's End, captain drops a key for this chest, contains just the quest update.

The forum here more for names dropping stuff, not about the quest....

If you are asking about the signature quest:http://forums.station.sony.com/eq2/...topic_id=523158

Whilhelmina states this on page 2 of the forum

Drinal’s Steward - Shades of Drinal: Dreadcutter at World’s End

Usual tips for those lost in the boat. You need to kill the boss and open a chest in his room.Then you'll have a monolith of Theer to harvest at 10.87, 26.04, -93.09 . Next step is back on Obol Plains, just near the entrance of the Dreadcutter.No problems with the quest but the constant respawning in the boat is a pain.
