Occupation of Lough Gur (version 2)
DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different
Aziliz (located on the isle across from Tir na mBeo and Argagh) asks you
to investigate the gurite occupation. She sends you to see Solas in Shannon
Estuary near the Ceanlia village.
Solas requires the head of a Curmudgeon Fighter before he will speak to you.
Seek out Curmudgeon Fighter either in Lough Derg or near Innis Carthaig along
the shore of the lake (loc=46, 28 Lough Gur.)
Once Solas receives the head, he speaks a few things about the gurites
but Trefor in the gurite raider camp will have more for you. However, he
will want two druid daggers. Trefor loc: 6k 53k on the west side of Lough
Gur. Druids can be found on a hill in Bri Leith or the west side of Lough
Gur (Loc=7, 33 Lough Gur).
Upon delivering the daggers to Trefor, he will ask you to retrieve a treasure
from a named cluracaun, Smirky. His loc is 31k 18k. You may find him
at night but possibly have to kill a few regular cluricauns to get him to
spawn. Killing Smirky gets you a "smirky's ring."
Deliver smirky's ring to Trefor. He doesn't detect anything special with the
ring and brushes you off. He gives you the ring back while doing so.
Return to Aziliz and speak to her. Give her the ring. She begins to study
it and asks you to tell Trefor that you "would like to do more treasure
After stating that to Trefor, he sends you to Iago (right across the fire
from Trefor). Iago has a plan that involves a special named curm, Curmie.
His loc is 49k 29k near Innis. He gives you a sack of rotting fish in order to lure Curmie out.
Give Curmie the rotting fish. In the process, Curmie somehow dies. You
may be jumped by some lower level curms (fighters, poachers, etc). Iago
appears and exclaims that you are apparently of no use and states you
should find your own way home.
Return to Aziliz and state that the gurites "search for treasure of the lost tower of tir na mbeo." She states in the process that the ring was lost
long ago and was overlooked by the gurites of its value. She rewards
you with a decent amount of exp some gold and an item.
Mobs found during this quest (all below are in Lough Gur):
Trefor: Orange to level 24, 6.6k 53k
Iago: Red to level 24, 6.6k 53k

nevertheless, the story is quite nice and the reward is a good one too.
btw, reward for enchanter/mentalist/eldritch is:
Lv 24 Belt
and...if you havent already...you need to make siabra faction neutral before you start this quest. the whole trefur/iago-camp conned purple to 26 (xept trefur and iago, they were red, but guarded and in the middle of this camp ~~)
Started as a lvl 24 ranger, got the two druid knives from the druids in Lough Gur (Yellow con). Then, after seeing all the high-purple aggressive aggro going towards the gurite camp, I decided to come back later. Now lvl 25, and have found that the easiest way to get to the gurite camp without getting aggro is to head S from the stone where Smirky sits (btw, he conned orange to me the first time I killed him, and yellow the second) just past the end of the forest. Turn right (West) and head to the zone wall. You should pass just N or TC.
Once you hit the zone wall, just head due S til you hit the Gurite camp. I hope you have good siabra faction cause everybody there is purple exect for Trefor and Iago.
Found a hill to the NE of the Gurite camp that is full of Melancholy Fairies. Conned Purple-Agressive to me. Will finish up this quest tonight.
