Dialog from combining the 3 scrolls:
The Great Hunt, complete story reads, "Hear me, o Gods! Take pity on this fool whose greed and vanity have condemned him to live out his days in torment! Hear me now as I remember great Orion, whose life was taken at the hands of this lowly betrayer… I, the wretched man whose lust for material gain has come at too great a price. Hear now your humble, most unworthy servant Peridas, as I record the tragic tale in these, my last hours as a mortal man. For my doom is written as surely as the sun rises come the break of the new day."

The Great Hunt, complete story reads, "It was to be a great hunt. Mighty Orion, unmatched in skill, and I, his rival, made our way to Stygia. Orion had boasted that he could surely slay any creature in all the realms of our land. Truly, we believed him, and why should we not? His skills were unmatched, and his blessed armor was forged by the Gods themselves. It was his magical belt and its protective powers I envied most, and so, when Orion had made his proud claim, I challenged him to prove his worth by embarking on a great hunt without the aid of his belt. Proud Orion, fearful of endangering his reputation, had no choice but to accept the challenge. "

The Great Hunt, complete story reads, "That night, while Orion slept under the stars of Stygia , my desire to possess the belt overcame my reason. I placed a deadly scorpion in his boot, and the next morning, he was fatally stung while dressing for our great hunt. The Gods, who had ever favored Orion, lay a terrible curse upon me, and with the rise of the new sun in the morning, I shall be damned to live out my days forever transforming from one beast of prey to another. Forever it is I, Peridas, who shall be hunted! O, the terrible, tragic irony! What a fool I am! What a greedy, selfish fool who has brought upon himself a terrible curse, all for want of Orion's Belt. Oh Gods! Take pity upon me now as I submit to your wisdom and judgement!"

With all the changes, just wanted to let you know you will ALWAYS get the encounter credit now, you will NOT get a belt. With the credit and the scrolls, you go to appropriate scholar in Oceanus Haven and when you turn in the scrolls, you receive the actual Belt. And, as with ALL artifacts now, you receive leveling xp for anything you kill. Peridas is a random spawn at any time of the day (NOT a night spawn), and if you don't find it up on one server, check the others as there is a good chance it will be up on at least one of them.

Got him last evening. Was easy for 48 enchanter. Received scroll 1 and 3 off of a Bolo Statue and a Harpie on the large island directly across from the encounter.

Leveling was simple. Went to Passage of Conflict and after 8 or 9 kills was level 10

I camped him for about 10 hours. Was killing harpies the whole time. Took a break from killing them and he spawned after 2 harpies flew around for about 20-30 minutes. Got owned with my 36 scout, 37 minst and 36 bot. Called in guild reenforcements and killed him no problem. Got the archer ring but no belt.

I didn't realize what he was for and was trying to pull him last night with my bow. Could draw back on him, just wouldn't release the arrow, do ya have to be in melee range to pull him or was it bugged?

These guys say farm harpies on island for 2 hours, then wait 30 minutes. Worked on 2 separate occasions.
Spawn times

I think its a 2 hr timer with a slim chance of spawn, it checks every spawn time and picks a random number, if that random number matches, it will spawn, if not, you have to wait.

I waited on pendragon for 10 hours on two days, No spawn what so ever... But maybe that is just Pendragon

Ok I spent 10 hours on this Island yesterday and killed him twice with nothing ot show for it. So be prepared ahead of time in case you dont get anything. other than that he is pretty easy. Im a 43 supp BD and can take him with no problems. Its more a waiting game then anything else.
