The Fang of Ichor, Assassin Epic. aITEM 1239318464 1839703603:[Fang of Ichor]/a To start this quest, you need to be level 80 and have the Investigate skill. This is granted either by the second quest in the SoD line, or by buying it in Teren's Grasp. If you decide to buy it, the place to do so is from Juulika McDarid in Teren's Grasp- cost is 8.75plat at max faction. Quest starter: At -1702, 25, -774 in Nektulos Forest, inspect a dead body (Rylana) in the bear cave. Quest: The first step is to inspect the bracelet placed in your inventory. Upon inspecting, it tells you to search out the NPC who may recognize this bracelet. The NPC you need to speak to is Deacon Danerous, at -64, -21, 134 in East Freeport. After speaking with Deacon Danerous, he sends you to get 10 'sathiran poisons.' You need the recipe from Sebilis, which is a fairly common drop off any NPC in zone, including the solo frogs at entrance. After getting the recipe, you need:
  • 10 Di'Zok Gall Bladders from Chardok, off of any Sarnak in zone, including the solo mobs at entrance.
  • 30 Mineral Salt Loams
  • 20 Rough Kunzites
  • 10 Deklium Clusters
  • 50 Smoldering Candles.
Upon gathering the ingredients, you need to travel to the Sathirian Alchemist's Table in Sebilis- This is at the bottom of Sebilis, just left of the door into Venril Sathir's Lair. It's an easy level 9 combine, but takes a long time to complete. Failure *is* possible and *does* consume the bladder. After combining the 10 poisons, return to Deacon Danerous in East Freeport. The next step of the quest is to purchase three items from various faction merchants in RoK to turn in to Deacon Danerous. You will need to be able to purchase from Terens Grasp, Riliss, and the Synod Reet.
  • The item from Teren's Grasp is the Straightedge.
  • In Riliss, you will be buying the Grim Blade of Rile.
  • From the Synod reet you need to purchase the Krup Belt of Evasion.
Upon purchasing these items, return to Deacon Danerous in East Freeport. Deacon Danerous will send you to North Qeynos to kill a freeport traitor in exile: In North Qeynos, just to the SE of the Claymore, there is a General store marked on the map. Inside, right behind the baker, is an instance (Baker Vuleen's store room) Inside the zone is the mob you need to kill. He is an 80^, but he sleeps through his death. Return to Deacon Danerous. At this point, Deacon Danerous will send you to speak with Preceptor Nyjuss in North Freeport at the inn.
  • Preceptor Nyjuss will send you to kill four NPC's. You *have* to be wearing the robe given at start of this step in order to get updates.
  • Yulessina Nybright - In the Peacock Club. 81^ solo mob.
  • Rollus the Sly - In Crows Resting Place- An instace off of Down Below in the qeynos sewers. 81^^ heroic. Can be killed with a group as long as group members have the Crow Coin from SoD quest.
  • Rid Jestands - In Lesser Faydark at the Nybright camp. Is a 60^^^, as soon as you aggro, turns into an 85^^^ heroic. Hits VERY hard. Bring a solid group.
  • Ekner Darkblade - In stealth mode, bring butterfly totems. Spawns in the Festering Hag's room in Unrest. Will be stealthed in between stairs and wall.
Once you've killed these four mobs, return to Preceptor Nyjuss. You will be sent to Neriak to kill a member of the Ebon Mask. Head to Neriak. The Ebon Mask stronghold is near the far right side of the map. The mob you are looking for is Rhylinil K'Helviurden on the first floor of the tower. When you hail him, a short dialogue will appear. Be ready to fight as soon as dialogue clears. Rhylinil is an 85^^^ mob. About 15 seconds into this fight, Vykko T'Lach will also turn aggro and attack you. He is an 85^^ heroic. Adds somewhat significant dps. Once Rhylinil dies, you will get update and it will not matter if you die. After finishing the fight/wiping to it and running back, you need to stealth and place the note you received before killing Rhylinil on the u-shaped desk in the foyer of the Ebon Mask. After killing Rhylinil, return to North Freeport and speak to Preceptor Nyjuss. Preceptor Nyjuss will then send you to speak with Watcher Lirosi, who is in the tavern in StoneStair Byway. On hailing Lirosi, you will be attacked by an 81^^^ version. Upon killing Lirosi, you get a bit more dialogue. After this, you are sent back to Preceptor Nyjuss in NFP. Preceptor Nyjuss sends you to recover a tome in Kunark from a member of the Ebon Mask and decipher the two tomes. The book is being held by Morticus Belaern in Terens Grasp. Morticus is on the ground level, past the ramp up towards bank at 2223, 479, -779. He turns into an 85^^^ after dialogue and auto-attacks. (It would appear you have to be wearing robe on this step as well.) After killing Morticus, you recieve the Ancient Grimoire and are then told to return to the Preceptor. Preceptor Nyjuss sends you to find a sage who can identify the two tomes. The sage you need to find is Old Man Pomeranke in the Thundermist Village in Thundering Steppes at 552, 0, -72. Note that he is NOT trackable. Old Man Pomeranke sends you on a quest to find his dictionary in a 'crypt with flashing lights' in kunark. Sebilis. The place to find this book is in Sebilis: Loc -151, -22, 310. A Skeleton sitting in the corner near the labs in the room with golems. Return to Old Man Pomerenke in Thundermist Village. This updates the Mysterious Trinket quest to the following: I must travel to Kunark in search of a Shisik translater The Shisik Translator roams in Dalnir's wheel. Kuza Sathak is the name of the translator. This step is going to cost you 5p. She will return the tomes and send you to 'find and slay the creature that placed the spell upon the tomes.' This is Drusella Sathir. (NOTE: STEP CURRENTLY BUGGED, Auto-updates on apparently any mob) Return to Kuza Sathak. Upon returning, she will ask for time to translate- takes about a minute. Then she sends you back to Preceptor Nyjuss in NFP. Nyjuss sends you to 'discover the location of the temple mentioned in the tome' This is Chelsith. Upon entering Chelsith, you get update and quest asks you to search for clues. In Chelsith, you need to clear the entire zone. Upon Majora's death, the altars of worship become clickable. These are the statues where the rare named/placeholders spawn. The five statues must be clicked nearly simultaneously, so basically just have group members spam-click every item. Once you get the update, a chest will spawn near one of the altars. Clicking the chest spawns Protector of the Blade, an 85^^^ heroic droag. He seems to be easier to kill than others in our epic- just be sure to fight with tank up against a wall, as he knockbacks/deaggros. Upon killing the Keeper, the chest becomes clickable, and updates rewarding you with aITEM 1849566708 -375510786:[a strange amulet]/a and updating quest to 'Discover a use for the Amulet' with a hint about droag and dragons. This requires going to skyfire and clicking three pedastals, supposedly has to be in the correct order. 1st: -1893, 201, 1674 2nd: -1844, 235, 756 3rd: -1354, 249, 585 This updates the quest to 'Discover what you've just unleashed in Jarsath Wastes'. Go to the steps of Veeshan's Peak. Guardian of the Blade will spawn and speak some dialogue. At the end of the dialogue, he turns aggro as an 86^^^ heroic.

We killed Morticus twice in Teren's Grasp (yes, I had the Robe equipped) and it still would not update.  One other player claimed he was experiencing the same problem.Anyone else not getting this update?

The quest isn't updating on the part below.  I've killed the Protector of the Blade in Chelsith, obtained "a strange amulet", and took it to all the pedestals in the order below.  I have Draconic already so there shouldn't be a problem right?This requires going to skyfire and clicking three pedastals, supposedly has to be in the correct order. 1st: -1893, 201, 1674 2nd: -1844, 235, 756 3rd: -1354, 249, 585

It's currently bugged. If someone does this step and doesn't kill the Guardian of the Blade, it won't let you update.

That is incorrect, this issue was in fact fixed and pushed out to the live servers a few days ago.  Have you tried it within the last 48 hours?

I've had people complaining at me in the last two days about it, but I have not personally, no. I've been done with the epic for some time now.Although, admittedly, I'm not 100% sure if it was yesterday they complained about it or not, it may have been over the weekend.Mostly people have been [Removed for Content] about Opal not respawning after she's killed though.

In Chelsith, you need to clear the entire zone. Upon Majora's death, the altars of worship become clickable. These are the statues where the rare named/placeholders spawn. The five statues must be clicked nearly simultaneously, so basically just have group members spam-click every item. Once you get the update, a chest will spawn near one of the altars. Clicking the chest spawns Protector of the Blade, an 85^^^ heroic droag. He seems to be easier to kill than others in our epic- just be sure to fight with tank up against a wall, as he knockbacks/deaggros.Upon killing the Keeper, the chest becomes clickable, and updates rewarding you with aITEM 1849566708 -375510786:[a strange amulet]/a and updating quest to 'Discover a use for the Amulet' with a hint about droag and dragons.

This step is currently bugged.

When the time to go to chelstith comes, you will have the quest to search for clues.  Clicking on the 5 alters at the same time will udpate to quest to find out what is in the chest.  Once you have the quest to find out what is in the chest, you MUST kill the protecter of the blade before the instance expires, or you will NOT be able to click the alters again in a future instance of chelstith, and therefore will not be able to spawn the chest (or protecter) again.

According to a GM, this is a known issue.  The GM advised that until a fix is put into game, that a workaround is to have another assassin that is on the quest portion to find more clues will be able to get the group able to click the alters again.  However, as best as I can tell the protecter only drops ONE quest update, which will either give you a 50% chance to work around the bug, or the other assassin a 50% chance to get caught in the bug.

I can not test this (since I completed my quest), but the dev has stated a couple of times, that if you fail to kill the named in Chelsith, then you have to clear the entire zone the next time you come in to a new instance (all the levithan), and then the chest will spawn again, so you can pop the named.

what if you go into a pre-cleared zone of chelsith? And if so, do the statues ever high-light? or is it just dumb luck spam click? Or do i need to be present to kill Majora?

Unless it's been changed you have to be in zone for all the scripted named kills. The Idols become clickable once Majora dies. All 5 must be clicked at once. Protector spawns at zone in once you click the chest, comes to the chest.
