Druid Epic Quest Walkthrough
Note - This quest is nearly impossible if you do not have plently high level friends or are in a big guild.
First go to Telin Darkforest (Level 55) in Burning Woods. He roams near to the Skyfire zone and has been sited at positive 3234 positive 2871. Ask him "what action" and he will give you a note. If he doesn't, then your faction is too low. Faction can be built up fast by doing the muffin-quest in Freeport.
Next, find Faelin Bloodbriar in Greater Faydark. She can be found in the northern part of the zone near the Chrushbone entrance. Just roam around close to the entrance and use tracking. She is a rare spawn so it may take a while to find her. Once you do find her, give her the note and you receive a ring. After giving her the note she depops. Giz X'Tin (Level 40) is found in Kithicor near the path from West Commons to Highpass Hold. Give him the ring and he gives you a dark metal coin. Giz roams along the path. After you hand him the ring a level 50 Darkelf Reaver spawns and attacks you. Be prepared and have Spirit of the Wolf cast on you so that you can run away. Go back to Telin Darkforest and give him the Coin. He will give it back to you as worn metal coin. He tells you to find Athele. Find Athele in East Karanas. She can be found just north of the barbarian fishing village. Give her the worn metal coin and receive a worn amulet. Give this amulet to Sionae (spawns -2300, -930), then to Nuien (spawns -3650, -300) and finally to Teloa (spawns -3800, -2860). When you give the amulet to Teloa the Dark Elf Corruptor and two Darkelf Reavers (All around level 50) spawn. You should have one of your druid friends stand on the hill east of the river (loc -1500, -1000). He will depop after 10 seconds if not attacked so have the druid kite the Corruptor over to you. You needn't worry about the Reavers, they will head towards the four druids. Just kill the Corruptor and get the tome. The Reavers will probably just kill the druids which is fine because Athele will spawn in about one hour. Give Athele the tome and he gives you an earthstained Note. Bring this to Ella Foodcrafter. Ella Foodcrafter in Misty Thicket is this wanted women that wanders the zone. Give her the earthstained note and she will tell you that she needs a mixture. She will give you her mixing bowl. It is a Container so you need a free slot in the Inventory. She also mentions some kind of ancient bowl that she needs.
The Hardened Mixture
You must forage 4 items that you have to combine in Ella's mixing bowl. Chilled Tundra Root from Everfrost Peaks. Sweetened Mudroots from Misty Thicket. Speckled Moldy Mushrooms from Innothule Swamp. Heartfruit from Greater Faydark. Go to these places and put the "Forage" button into your hotkey, find a nice safe space and hit forage continuously. This can take several hours so be prepared. When you get the items, combine them in the bowl and you get a Hardened Mixture.
The Runed Bowl
Go to the Chess Island in Timorous Deep. The level 57 spell Succor will take you there, but it has been reported to drain your mana to about two bubbles to use cautiously. Once you get there, ask Alrik Farsight (location unknown) "How do you make an ancient bowl?". He gives you a crushed pot and sends you to Felwithe. Talk to Farios Elianos (location unknown) in Felwithe South. If he doesn't respond to you then your faction with Keepers of the Art is too low. You can build up faction fast with the batwing-quest in Felwithe South. If Farios talks to you, give him the pot and you receive a grocery list. He will give you the receipt for the bowl if you do a job for him. Bring this grocery list to Merchant Nora (Location Unknown) in Felwithe north and she gives you in return a bag of Provisions. Bring it to Farios and he gives you the receipt for the ancient bowl. Head back to Alrik Farsight in Timorous Deep . He will give you an ancient pattern when you give him the receipt. The pattern says that you have to combine it with a piece of enchanted clay and platinum speckled powder in a pottery wheel. NO skill in pottery required. Platinum speckled powder can be obtained through another sub quest. Forage a Rose of Firiona in Firiona Vie and give it to Merdan Fleetwood (Location also Unknown) in Surefall Glades. The old wooden painting that you receive has to be brought to the human skeleton (Level 40) that roams the western part of Frontier Mountains. It was said to have been sighted running from Burning Woods to the Dreadlands. He conned indifferently to this certain person. Head back with the silver chained locket you got from the skeleton to Surefall Glades and give it to Niera Farbreeze (Level 50). She hands you the platinum speckled powder. Enchanted clay can be obtained through Kinlo Strongarm in Kaladim's EverHot Forge. If you ask him "what mud" and "do it for me" he will tell you that he would like to have a colored axe for his service. He wants a Jade Reaver that can be found in the City of Mist off of a Black Reaver who is about level 52. Hand Kinlo the axe and you get the enchanted clay. I think that if you are KoS to the dwarves then you can do this part invisible. Just go to the Everhot Forge and hand Kinlo a Jade Reaver to get the clay. Now combine the pattern, clay and powder in any pottery wheel to make the Rune Crested Bowl.
Go Back to Misty Thicket and hand Ella Foodcrafter the hardened mixture and the rune crested bowl. She will make for you a softly glowing stone from it. Ella tells you to find one such as yourself. For the Druids this means to seek out Foloal Stormforest (Location Unknown) in Firiona Vie. Ask her "are you one such as myself?", "what answers?" and "what about Venril Sathir?". She tells you to bring her the stone you already have from Ella and the gem that can be found on Venril Sathir. Kill Venril Sathir (-90, -777) in Karnor's Castle and loot the gem he drops. Venril is a very tough level 55. He is only killed my strong guilds because he is level 55, hits for 300 FAST, has a 1000+ life suck spell and has two personal clerics how heal him whenever they get hurt. This guy is extremely hard so you might want to be in a good group to do this part. Give the gem and the softly glowing stone to Foloal Stromforest and get a warm pulsating stone. Now this is the time where the quest splits up into the Druid and the Ranger parts. Foloal tells you to take the stone and walk your path. Apparently, The Druid's path leads back to Ella Foodcraft in Misty Thicket. Give her the stone and you will get the Elaborate Scimitar (10/30 9 wis 10 mana 5 sv poison and disease)...now you have one of the four final pieces. She asks you to collect the Cleansed Spirits of Antonica, Faydwer and Kunark and hand them along with the scimitar to Xanuusus.
The Cleansed Spirits
The Cleansed Spirit of Antonica
Go to North Karana and find a Withered Treant around level 54-60. (I found this treant not far from the named one, slighty east of the named one on the same wall. Coned red to me at level 51...) Hail him and ask him "What Sickness" and he will respond that he wants you to cleanse Antonica of its sickness. He means to kill three things. The first one is the Corrupted Mammoth. He is below level 30, spawns in Everfrost Peaks, pops near Permafrost zone line and Mammoth Calves are his place holder. The second monster is the Corrupted Aquagoblin Shaman. He is mid level 30 in Lake Rathe with side spawns on tops of the underwater-tower. The middle spawn is for the Cleric Epic Quest. Use your wolf form spell so that the other goblins won't attack you. Once the corrupted shaman spawns kite him away. The third one creature is the Corrupted Hill Giant in Rathe Mountains. To make him spawn you have to kill Tainted Hill Giants which are around the HG area south of the hill with the Guard Tower. It is said that the Corrupted Hill Giant appears from the corpse of the tainted but this is not confirmed yet. It can take several tainted to get the corrupted to spawn. Give the 3 items looted from all the Corrupted monsters to the treant to receive the treant heart. (I have not found out yet what these items are so you might want to do a little research on the items and make sure you have the right ones. The items are probably no drop and lore so that might give it away. The only thing I am absolutely sure about is that the Corrupted Hill Giant drops an Ancient Rock which is one of the items.- Aline) Go to Yeka Ias (Level 60 and his loc is positive 2330 negative 2340 ) in South Karanas and give him the heart. He will give you the Cleansed Spirit of Antonica.
The Cleansed Spirit of Faydwer
You will meet a pained Unicorn in Lesser Faydark (location around 0,0). Ask
him "What Corrupt" and he will tell you, "Pained Unicorn tosses
its head back, drool falling from its mouth. The priests of the sick, channel
filth and sickness into the lands. Too late did we notice to stop them. Here, in
the ocean, and in the underwater city of old. Go to those places and find the
corruptions. Bring them to me." Collect for him the items
looted from the Corrupted Seahorse, the Corrupted Cyclops, and the Corrupted
Brownie. The first monster, the Corrupted Seahorse is located in Kedge Keep.
He is around level 52 and needs 1-2 groups to be killed. AS far as I can
remember you have to pass the area where Estrella is and the named
Seahorse. This guy hits for about 141 damage. The second
creature is the Corrupted Seafury Cyclops. You need 3-4 high level people
to take this one out. The best tactic is fear kiting because he hits hard
and is around level 52. It spawns right after you kill a Tainted Seafury
Cyclops. The item dropped is Seavines. The third creature is the Corrupted Brownie.
He is a level 55 druid and can be taken out by a full group of mid level
40s. To make him spawn you must kill a tainted brownie and it appears
immediately from the corpse. Now head back to the Unicorn. The Unicorn will give you a gleaming horn for the 3
items looted from the corrupted. This has to be
handed to the gnome Silox Azrix in Ak'Anon to get the Cleansed Spirit of Faydwer.
He is near the mines on the left side of the green river. There is another green gnome near him but you can do this part with superior camouflage on you if you
are KoS or otherwise disliked there because you need no faction for Silox.
The Cleansed Spirit of Kunark
Ulump Pujlik, a named Froglok in Swamp of No Hope tells you to give his own essence along with the 3 corrupted things to the gnome that hurts the land. His location is -108, -1762. He is around level 55+ and hits for over 200 damage with 32000 hitpoints. He cannot be slowed. Very hard to kill. You should have 2 groups with 4-6 melee and 2-4 nukers (all as high level as possible) and kill Ulump, then loot his Essence. Lure spells hit for full damage. The 3 corrupted mobs of Kunark are the Corrupted Gorilla, Corrupted Barracuda, and the Dragon Faydedar. The Corrupted Gorilla is mid level 40 and spawns in the Emerald Jungle. He pops in the northern part of the plateau. A Tottering Gorilla are his placeholder. Root and then dot him but stay far away. He has sow speed. The second monster, Corrupted Barracuda, is a high level 40 and loc is -900, -900. Only by killing the tainted will the corrupted pop from its corpse. Pull it to land and kite him because root breaks quickly. Would be much simpler if you have a friend that would help you kite it. The last, final and most toughest is the Dragon Faydedar that lives in the sea in Timorous Deep. He is level 60 and hits rapidly for 250 damage. He guards the pot rooms and his aggro range is tremendous. You really need an entire guild to take this bad boy out. Hand the 4 items to the Gnome Nekexin Virulence in Overthere to get the Cleansed Spirit of Kunark.
Well you have made it. Done something extremely difficult. You have made it through the most difficult Druid Quest in the game. Hand the 3 Cleansed Spirits and the scimitar to Xanuusus the Treant in North Karanas to receive the Nature Walker's Scimitar.
I would really like to know what you thought of the walkthrough. I spent a lot of time and would like to see how helpful I was. Thanks - Aline
