~Unsung Heroes ~
The Treant Fist's
This quest is iniatited by visiting Master Paub in the Ashen Order house in Freeport. The link between Treant Fists and Master Paub comes from Grim Oakfist, the originator of the Collar of Nekisha quest. When that quest is finished, he says that he gave his last pair of Treant Fists to Master Paub.
Note: Iksar CANNOT wear the Treants, as they are plate based guantlets.
He will then give you a coin - 'Paub's Token' which is No Drop and Lore, and weighs 0.1
Once the Banished Kerran is found, hand him the coin, he will in turn give you a 4 slot box and a list of things that he requires, namely the Humorous Handled Mace, Ribcage Breastplate, Cat Skullcap, and the Fractured Femur Bone. The items are all found around the Runnyeye zone, 2 within Runnyeye itself, one in Misty Thicket, and one in the Gorge. You do not need to visit the banished Kerran first to get the box, just collect the items first, saving you the extra trip. The text is found below.
Gorge of King Xorbb
This is where the Goblin Alchemist is found. The gorge rests between East Karana and runnyeye, and he drops the Humorous Handled Mace. He is also the hardest one to track down, and much patiance is required.
You can either go into Runnyeye and hunt (but expect another Brother to be there when you return), or sit on what I refer to as 'Bodi's Rock'. Both of the Goblin's on the right hand side of the left fork wander down to the lone goblin lookout/sentry just further into the gorge and then back again.
The Placeholder spawns inside this tent, and can be Mooto, a goblin Shaman or a Goblin Warrior. He wanders between the camps, and even over to 'spy' on the Orc camp in the corner, which is where I found him, before he returns to his spawn point. This Alchimist is an 18-min spawn.
Both of the Alchimists have some spells, but not anything to be too warey of. One thing to note with the Misty Alchimist, is that if he runs, he runs towards the Halfling guards, who may kill him before you do.
As a note, the Fractured Femur also drops in Kunark, in the Lake of Ill Omen, but whether this item will work in the quest as a replacement is your choice --I personally would NOT use the Kunark Femur.
The banished Kerran is located in High Preistess Mitty's temple, in the basement, and if he has been killed, he can be a long spawn to wait for.
a banished Kerran says 'Clawknight Thipt wished to learn the ways of Ashen. Prrr. Together we go into green Goblin's lair to train. Prrr.. We find too many and he is too weak. Seperated and unable to find him, I hear his death cry. Prr.. I cannot make it back, the eyes are upon me. Now I must find one sent by Ashen to aid in the recoverrry of his remains.
He then gives you a box. Place all the items in the box, and hit combine, and then hand the result back to the banished Kerran, for which you will get this message:
a banished Kerran says 'Prrr.. Thank you brother of Ashen. I can now spend my time upon this island in peace, until my penance is serrrved. (He dabs his paw into the mud and places it upon a tattered parchment). Take this message to Puab. Farrrwell.
Note: Please make sure you have suficient faction for completing this quest. A Qeynos Brother I know had sufficent to iniate the quest, but insuficient to finish it, and lost all of his items.
Take the (paw print tattered parchment) note back to Paub in the Ashen Order house and he will say the following:
Puab Closk says 'You have performed a great service to one who is your brother. Your loyalty shines brightly, as does your skill. Take the treant fists. They are yours now.
