DISCLAIMER: Your Steps and Tasks may be different

Characters that were created after Patch Version 1.79 do not receive this Epic quest.

See your trainer [Carys]. She sends you to [Adam Glaze].
He gives you a cloak and sends you out to slay [Martley]. He is in Isle of Glass, coordinates for Martley are 5k - 30k and he spawns in the 'single tent' camp there. It seems to be easiest to approach the camp from the shoreline to the West of the tent as it reduces the surrounding aggro. You have to kill off a few Nypholites and then put on the cloak from [Adam Glaze]. (When I got there [Martley] was already spawned but when I killed him I got journel update, so I killed some nypholites and put the cloak on, he appeared again and I got the update) Return to [Adam Glaze] and give him [Martley]'s body, he will give you something to take back to [Tage].

You get 57,960 exp and 6 silver, and Arawn's Beads.

    First time I did this quest I forgot to put on the cloak... gave myself a headache I did. When I just got the quest on my heretic, I put on the cloak immediatly and went off to find the camp... At about loc 10k/40k there are neophytes to kill befoer you get to Martley's camp. I killed one, and lo and behold, Martley appeared in place of the neophyte I killed! I tried this again on another of my alts, and it happened again. So dont wait to put on the cloak! Put it on and kill the first neophyte you see! ^..^``~AuburnwWolf

    My wife and I have gone to the loc's of 5k 30k to 6k 42k and anything in that area and there is a camp but all are grapes to ll and the camp has alot of enchantress' there.. it's no where near the short, or anywhere close to the directions givin by the quest giver. Lots of undead apple pickers etc. and Drakothan(sp) fighters, etc. in the area.. little too high of a place for a lvl 11 quest i'd think..

    Can Anyone else confirm that either the loc system has changed from all these posted postions or that the mobs themselves have been moved?

    Any info would be great! Finding this guy is near impossible =/

    I just finished this last night solo with my level 13 necromancer. I tried multiple times over the past two levels to follow the shoreline as is recommended in the quest journal and never could make it to the recommended area. Too much green and blue aggro and this annoying urchin stealth mob kept popping on my pet just south of the gaugorian whelps. Annoying. So I tried coming from the other direction instead. Run or take a horse to Anniogel (bind just in case) then head N-NW to the 1st fort. Follow the fort line SW (run inside the forts if you pick up aggro somewhere, but you shouldn't...nothing really spawns between the forts) until you reach the 2nd fort. Run around to the west side of the 2nd fort (approx loc 22k, 22k) and head due west or slightly W-SW until you reach the coast. Keep an eye out and try to do it during the day for better sight range (you'll be dodging bugganes, corpse lights, and grape drakorans - all aggressive - but they're spaced pretty far apart so you can do it with reasonable ease). Once at the coast, get your bearings and move north or south until you're at about 5k, 27k. Stick to the water's edge although I don't think anything roams there. Once at 5k, 27k, slowly East over the rise. You should see a single tent with drakoran neophytes. They were blue and yellow to my level 13. I pulled the northern-most one first and he didn't bring his friend; he died nicely. I pulled the one just inside the north side of the tent, and just as he died, Martley spawned (I wasn't even wearing the cloak). As my pet did his thing, I switched in the cloak just to make sure I got the right drops, and Martley died without much difficulty. He dropped "Marley's body" and "Martley's Remains". He was yellow to lvl 13. Return the same way you came by dodging across the field to the forts and pause in Anniogel to get your corpse candle. (Go stand by the stable master in Anniogel and look due south into the woods - you should see the corpse candles glowing just a few paces outside the town lines - super easy pull, might as well kill a few ghosts for quick exp while you're there.) Hop a horsey from Anniogel to Caer Gothwaite to be lazy and get your reward.
    Extra loot - Unfinished??

    Finished this quest with my lvl 12 Nec and received 'Arawn's Beads', but I also received 'Martley's Remains' when i killed him. Is this used in the future? I cannot sell it, and the quest had some empty loopholes. For instance, the guild has the original cloak but isn't goin to give it back to the temple of arawn? It also used me to their own advantage? Why would I not tell the Temple of Arawn? ...

    The remains can be made into a trophy to put in your house, when/if you have one.

    The camp Martley is at is on the Isle of Glass side of the lake, the same camp where Ariach resides. If you hit Avalon Isle, you went too far.

    I don't get it. Walking down the coast all the way out to AC almost there is nothing there. The only thing that comes close is a rock near the shore. Whats going on?

    Ok I am trying to finish this quest! I have tried killing Nypholites without the cloak, then puting it on and killing Martley. I tired killing everything with cloak on, I tried without wearing the cloak. I still cant seem to finish this syupid quest! HELP!!!!!
    Be careful out there!
    # Jan 05 2003 at 4:13 AM Rating: Decent
    These mobs are orange and yellow at level 11 when you get the quest. Take a friend, unless you are very powerful.
    When you kill one of the neophytes, Martley will spawn. Quickly put on the cloak that you were given before killing him.
