I have to say, the crypt camp was the worst part (although Chardok can take awhile too). The sword graphic is really neat, not sure I've ever seen it used anywhere. For anyone doing the quest, some tips - - Indifferent faction in Overthere works (ie I used sneak). - The goblin gave the not-enough-faction response for me when charmed (puppet strings). However, I completed the text, turned in the items and was able to progress. My working theory is that 1) I somehow got a random + faction hit to him while in Droga/Nurga/FM in kunark or there's a deity/racial mod, or 2) most people aren't doing the text exactly in alla post and/or not turning in all the items to move on while charmed. As Prathun posted earlier in this thread, it will be fixed shortly, but in the meantime, you might be able to continue the quest like some of us have. - Any giant in BW seems to drop the handle, I camped the fort. - Any mob in Nurga drops journal pages. - Chardok mob is the right treasury guard facing the door - exactly where stated on Goodurden's alla post. Pop rate appears to be about 5%, bracer is 100% drop. - Phinnie drops the sword, it's not a 100% drop rate, appears to be about 20-30% like the rest of his loot (2 of 6 so far). - The two CoM mobs drop the sword 100%. They appear to be able to spawn about anywhere like many CoM named (I found them both up on the 2nd floor). Be warned, I found out the Mist Reaver spawned Black Reavers after I killed, leading to Lord Ghiosk eventually. - Dar Ghoul Knights in OS crypt drop the Spine, there's approximately 5 roamers, all of which can be Dar's, along with the 3 entry statics, 2 caves of 2 statics each, and the 2 statics in the cubby in the front of the actual crypt (the longer middle spawn there cant be a ghoul) - for a total of 14 possible Dar pher's. The roamers can spawn as a live mage, who attacks the skeletons. Drop rate of 2-3% on Magelo appears accurate for me. - Above poster said on Alla that an_old_wurm dropped the Skyfire piece for him, on test I got it from a_mature_wurm, and on Phin I got it from either a_wurm or a_mature_wurm (I killed both at same time and didn't look closely at adv loot).
