Voices of the Dead
DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different
Per Read File Fix Jan 02, 2002:
Voices of the Dead - Players should no longer find themselves getting stuck when choosing a reward for this quest.
Per Patch 1.60:
- We have fixed a small issue where Kelsanor could be enticed to leave his area. Now, he will no longer leave his area.
- Valewalkers and Animists should now be able to complete the Albion quest, Voices of the Dead.
Marden, in Wearyall Village, speaks of the voices he hears and how he is too weak to stop them. He will ask you to help him. He then sends you to speak to Karayan.
Karayan has a gift for you from Arawn, but Arawn requires you to get him a
spirit. Karayan sends you to kill a Decayed Marshman (northish of city,
journal is very much correct and precise in directions for a change)
Kill Decaying Marshman, take the item back to Karayan. Karayan will tell you
your next task, which is to kill Kelsanor. In addition to telling you to kill Kelsanor, Karayan will also give you an item to aid your cause: Arawn's Gift, lvl 42, health regen: value 132, Duration: 30 secs, Cast time 3.0 Secs, power cost 44
Kelsanor is to the east, go past the lone tree on hill to the next set of
ruins. Most of the mobs in the old ruins con green to gray @ lvl 50, so
approach with caution. He is a caster, will disease, dot, nuke etc. At very
low life, he will warp whoever to another part of the hill away from him.
(be prepared for this, I missed the text the first time I did the quest,
actually caught it the second and was more prepared)
Kelansor is really hard to kill. You have to be close to hit to hit him with melee or a spell. At low health he will also port you way the heck away from him. I started it at 42, got my butt kicked by him and then came back with a 50 Reaver at 45 and killed him. Easy way to do it is make sure you get a DoT of some form on him when he gets to low health so that you can kill him if he ports you out.
Take the Essence back to Karayan in Wearyall. Reward was 2bil xp at lvl 48, 10 gold and choice of items. It is NOT class specific. Chose carefully, all types are covered, 2h weapons, Longbow, Shield, Staves, Crushing Weapons, etc. Some of the wording of this quest is off and I had to speak to a CSR to get the proper reward. It has been noted as being 'bugged'
Chosing Longbow: Carved Bone Pin, Longbow 6, Dex 6, Cold 2%, Hits 6, lvl 44
For Friar~~~~ Chose Focus Staves ~~~~ Yes, I know, it sounds very weird and
up to this point only associated with pure casters. Hence why I appealed the
item I chose and wanted to know correct for our class. You will get a choice
of Rejuvenation or Enhancement.
Rejuvenation: Sanative Staff, dps 15.9, spd 4.7, Power 8, hits 15, body 2%,
Focus Bonus: Rejuvenation 44 lvls.
THIS REWARD IS BUGGED. The CSR tested the Focus on the staff, it DOES NOT
work. Casting heals with and without the staff in hand, there was NO
variation. CSR sent it up to the Quest area to be fixed, I asked if I would
receive word or a different item if it was altered, all he could say was
watch for patch notes.
Caster Focus staves are all:
44 levels of focus in your skill
43 Minstril did not receive
