Sphinx Callia, in Oceanus Hesperos, says:
I laugh aloud for the thing you seek… Find it on an island meek.
Thought quiet and alone it seems…. Danger will pervade your dreams
Seek amongst the treasure holds, I hope you find your weight in gold.
If not your bleached bones will sing… Of days when you were a living thing.

This quest can be very easy or very hard ... it's all a matter of luck.

What you do is go to treasure island and right click ONLY ONCE on a treasure chest and one of three things will happen ... it will be empty, it will spawn a mob or it will say something about a glint of light or something like that. It is important that you pay attention when doing this as if you get this glint message you should immediatly stop what you are doing and f7 (to target the item) and then G to grab as if you right click on the chest again you lose the item and a mob spawns. Before you f7 - (g)rab the item it is important you get all members of your group very close to the chest so they are sure to get credit. If they are not right up on it, they don't get credit. I'm not sure how it was in the past but as of 05/03/2004 you must be right up on the chest to get credit.

It is best to go about this adventure with a sorcerer for crowd control. With CC you can do this with only a few people.

The mobs that spawn are not to hard for a small group of level 50s but if your group is unlucky enough to spawn a sentinal it is best to avoid it if possible (run from it to get out of range) unless you have a few tanks with you. Magic just isn't going to kill this thing so don't even bother trying.

The only other super hard mob would be the marble enforcers. They will be WAY easier than the sentinal but that isn't saying much. If you happen to run from these guys be prepared to run all the way back to the haven and expect atleast one of them to follow you all the way there. So do be careful with these guys as well.

We did this quest twice yesterday with a cabby, necro, a sorc and a buff bot. To get both shields it took a total of about 3 hours.

I opened every chest on the island twice..died a hundred times while my buffbot rezzed me. And still no shield..don't make any sence. Is there a certain time it spawns or how does this work exactly?

I figured it out and it goes like this....

The Island is coverd in treasure chests, but there is a trick to getting the shield. When ever you right click on a chest it will do one of three things. One: it will disappear and 3- 5 mobs will spawn in its place. Some are neutrel, others are high 40's and some even con grape to 50's and are agg. Those are best to run from...if they kill someone they will stay where the victim died..if not they will walk back to the place where they spawned. Two: the chest will disappear and a message will say it was empty. Three: it will not disappear..IF IT DOES NOT DISAPPEAR STOP WHAT YOU ARE DOING! Because any more right clicks and you will mess up your chance to get the shield. It will give you a message something about seeing a "glint" then target the chest using nearest object key and use your pick up object key...someone in your party will recieve the shield. If you mess up and right click one to many times..a random loot will drop, and mobs will spawn and you will have to try again. One last thought..remember to only right click once on each treasure chest.

I got that info from a sphinx in Hesperos and then I found the shield in a treasure chest on Isle of Thesauros.

I have yet to find any of the scrolls for this item though. Please respond with any info on the scrolls.

Rumors are that the scroll needed would be the Champion's notes
