DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

You will need neutral/friendly Melos faction to do this quest.

Important note: If you have started this quest and then attack a Melos (even if faction still is friendly) The quest will disappear from your journal and you will not be able to redo it.

1) Speak with Sollon in Meso, day loc=36758, 46663 and night loc=15661, 27312

2) Talk to Belen, loc=36654, 41708 Meso.

3) Belen sends you after a couple different types of sobekites to get ingrediants for a potion (sobekites that Belen sends you to kill: 1. Sobekite Khu Kamu - 28k, 40k Oceanus Boreal 2. Sobekite Khem Komo - 46k, 47k Oceanus Noto)

4) After killing these, return to Belen to turn the items in.

5) Now head to the Naxos territory & look for Naraid's Guards, kill them to make Naraid appear. Naida's Gaurds are in the main encampment in Naxos Territory in Mesothalassa. They are found around 49k, 20k. They are on the bottom, can't be seen from anywhere near the surface, and are surrounded by other Naxos. You have to be very careful descending to not get agro.

6) Belan tells you she was kidnapped after you set her free & the kidnappers want Belen & Sollon only to meet them, Belen gives you a mask to wear to take his place

7)Meet Sollon between 11:00 at night and 3:00 in the morning at the rocks north of the main Skyros camp in Mesothalassa (loc=15700 28500) to meet with the Kidnapper. Make sure you wear Belen's Mask and speak to him. (When you go to meet Solon, to kill him and Naida, bring a couple of friends. )

9)When you talk to Solon it turns out that he & Naraid are in love & they are Skyros spies, Solon makes your mask disappear to reveal you (good time to re-equip your jewel)(If you die, you no longer have the mask in inventory. You simply have to wait until the next nightfall, when Solon will pop again. Talk to him, then attack.)


10)after killing them take the item & note you receive back to Belen, you will need to /interact with the note, then you will receive your reward

Cant do the quest...

Um I cannot get the quest. I am a lvl 44 Earth Wiz and have Neutral Faction with Melos and Naxos. I have done the "Secret of the Naxos" quest prior to trying though. Sollon does not talk to me. Is it because I had to fight Nikoda in Melos territory? Am I now incapable of getting the Melos quest? I have an appeal in but no response yet.

Submitted an appeal and they fixed it. Did the quest. WOW. The last step definately needs a group! The first time you talk to Sollon (OJ), he gives you like 10 seconds to prepare and back up before Nadia (OJ) pops with him along with 3 Yellow Skyros. I was killed the first time I tried to Solo it at lvl 45 as an earth Wiz. I came back at 45 with a lvl 48 Neccro and we both died. Problem is that on subsequent attempts he never gives you time to prepare again. You click him and POP you are mobbed ny 2 OJ's and 3 Yellows. Then finnally came back with at 46 with a 50 pally, a 46 pally and a 41 Friar. The pallys peeled the yellows off me. The Friar just buffed and healed and I immediately rooted Sollon and Nadia. Backup up and opened fire on Nadia. Then re-rooted Sollon. By now the pallys had the yellows wiped and stood by and watched. The friar kept me alive. I finnished sollon off. WOOT. quests completed. Strange thing was that the ones I brought with to help me were not gruoped with me casue they had no faction with Melos adn Sollon is a Melos guy. But t worked great.

It is true that the last step may require more
than two people doing it, but we succeeded during
the first attempt doing it with a 41 Manachanter,
41 champion and 40 nightshade. We didn't use
the any pet and it worked quite well. Some
kind of crowd control puts you on the safe side.

The run through for this quest is skimpy, to say the least, so here is some more information.

The sobekites that Belen sends you to kill:
1. Sobekite Khu Kamu - 28k, 40k Oceanus Boreal
2. Sobekite Khem Komo - 46k, 47k Oceanus Noto
After killing these, return to Belen to turn the items in. Do not go straight to Naxos Territory for the gaurds.

Naida's Gaurds are in the main encampment in Naxos Territory in Mesothalassa. They are found around 49k, 20k. They are on the bottom, can't be seen from anywhere near the surface, and are surrounded by other Naxos. You have to be very careful descending to not get agro.

When you go to meet Solon, to kill him and Naida, bring a couple of friends. A 43 Necro and myself, a 41 Armswoman, wiped twice trying to kill these two. Not only do they pop, but three guards pop with them. Solon was 48, Naida was 45, and the three guards are 43. If you die, you no longer have the mask in inventory. You simply have to wait until the next nightfall, when Solon will pop again. Talk to him, then attack.
