Become a necro legend forever?

Lol.

First, even if I chose wisely, got the weapon, I'd be forgotten after a couple months by the other servers =)

2nd, I'm in a big guild, and if I happen to choose wrongly, that means my shot at the weapon goes out the window, as the other necros in the guild would be ahead of me again in the rotation...

I'll wait for a response from verant, I've come to close to be hindered by a bug. Patience is a virtue.

Zrazzt,
I can't blame you for not wanting to turn in the book yet.

Have you tried talking to every "non hostile" person involved with the quest about the box?

Another idea is that in a very early stage in the quest i remember Kazen saying that he did not want the DE in nekulous dead ... yet. Maybe we possibly need to kill her for the box, long shot yes, but something worth trying while you wait to here from verant.

Well, since you always have to say "I have the symbol of ", maybe you just tell him "I have the Tome of Instruction.)

Or, maybe you have to tell someone else you have it, like that Nektulos chic who Kazen kind of wants dead.

You can buy a 'box of the void' in the PoA for 1pp and it has 2 slots and a combine button from the keymaster.

OK nobody has mentioned this so i will throw it in.

The one character in Norrath who actually posseses the knowledge of how to live with one's soul in anothers body is of course Miragul. He was even mentioned in the last step as his blade was shown off.

Not that i would want to try this (first) but it is possible u may have to charm Miragul and hand him the tome to get the box (which seemingly functions as a device only he could create)

ok I don't think I have followed anything on the this board more intently then this. I have made it to the Hurb part and my smaller guild has made one run at it but where unable to make it all the way down the room befor we have a realy bad pull and we lost almost 2 groups. After recovering the bodys and all the rezzes where out of the way everyone called it a night So I am skiping that part for now and I hope to get back to but this week we are up in Fear with 2 other guild we allies with so who knows I might just get my chance at CT. Well just wonted to stop but and say your doing a grate job and giveing us all hope now if we can just get an anser on what the box is. I would not ask you to take the chance and give up the tome just yet knowing just what is at stake. You carrie our hopes and dreams. Just keep us informed

From EsterTheTester:

"It's a typo, the quest writer apologizes (and is standing here) and it will be fixed. It is supposed to say On the fifth page
last line first word "BOOK" Sorry about that."

Looks like we got the answer we were looking for!!!

Well working on quest myself, was in POA last night. Keeper of Souls is not 52 like most of the sites say, hes a nice 60 mob who DTes. Thankfully he doesn't roam, but he IS KOS so when you port up to Island 4 don't go left.

My only real contribution is we cleared island 3, had Gkzzallk spawned; he says something like 'would you like some tea'; you say 'I would like some tea'.

Then he says:

'The tea the fairies bring me, of course. Gzzallk takes a sip from an imaginary teacup and acts as if he is pouring tea into another invisible cup. 'It's such a nice day here. It's always a nice day here. I think that's why I never went back home.'

Myself and another necromancer [Oshiba] tried every possible combination of words regarding all previous keywords and those here; no dice.

Finally, I killed him--hes a low level wizard on the same faction as Kaven.

Starts Dubious, goes to indifferent when Liching. He repeatedly nuked my 53 pet and got it to 95% life before I offed him.
No faction loss, no item drops.

Hope this helps,
Ayama of Povar, 53 Necromancer

PS The way everyone says to spawn him does indeed work.

Just a small question from a mid leveler...how in the world did you figure out if you give so-and-so 3pp, the guy spawns? I mean, this is beyond me =) Maybe you hail her and she tells you to give her 3pp? Maybe youre a friggin genius? please do tell hehe.

She says "Gimme some money and I'll go look in on him and tell him to expect some visitors" I gave her 10pp, it gave a counter response (He's expecting visitors) then did it with 300 silver, and that worked as well... tried with 500 copper. Didn't work.

1pp might do it, but 3pp works for sure.

Was just me saying "WTF?! Why do I have 300 silver on me?! Sheesh"

and getting rid of it... =)

Not a genious, just following the cues verant gives me.

Just a thought on the "duck stick". I dont know where those pictures came from. They may have been early in development. For instance the shammy spear is there, but the Ragebringer isnt. The quest details talked of a "scythe with a shimmering black blade" and while the "duck" is the only scythe-like weapon, it doesnt fit this description at all. Lets just wait and see.

I don't want to burst anyones bubble but Necro's will get the "duck staff" Enchanters just finished their quest and got the serpent staff Oh well, it will hopefully still be worth the wait.

I hope you can get it tonight Z .. Good luck

What does it read like now when you replace the mistake with the word book?

Looks like you just give the book to him and it really is the "Black Box."

ok I am going on a limb here and going to guess our item is the same as enchanters stats wise and a life tap for right clickable effect. anyone else? of course it wont be out 750dmg life tap will be a lower level one around 330dmg or so with a really long cast time.

No the effect will be instant and most likely offensive... It will be right clickable no doubt about it. But an instant offensive tool would be awfully powerful, I hope it's a buff type deal that we can give our pets AND other players, like Gift Of Death: Super Regen ATK Resist Bonuses or something... heh just a thought, and we won't get +15 cha on our wep like the enchanters got, it'll prolly be -15 lol then we can ***** and whine like the shamans and get into something else, LOL!

Ok. No sky trip today. Simply because we don't want to do it half assed and have an uber mob spawn...

As for how the text changed, it became (just gonna do the relevant part, go back to page 9 to incorperate it to the text):

Find the location of Gkzzallk and simply hand him this black book. It will shrink his body and trap it in this box.

(I assume the 2nd reference to box should be BOOK as well, and that both references to BOOK should be TOME) lol.

Thx verant for your clarity.

If everyone could spam:
http://boards.station.sony.com/everquest/Forum3/HTML/002810.html

and get 1 last response to this issue, it'd be great. Thanks all for your help and support, and I hope to end this quest tommorow night =)

You can do it Z man!
I dont think we will be getting that duck staff, with hearing about a shimmering black bladed scythe. That would be very sleek, perhaps they changed the image after realizing it looked like a pelican skull. Good luck, hope you bring back something awesome, even if it is bird skull tipped.

Actually, if we had to rate what I'd like to see on the stick?

Top 5 choices:

1) Infusion
2) Convergence
3) Summon Corpse
4) Some form of BoD
5) Some form of instant Tap

For me, my top choices would be

1) Instant Pet, like the short lived Mage pet, would hit for like 80 pts, and tap like hell, then die after combat.

2) RUDE Life tap- a tap for something like 700 pts, just under our top tap.

3) Dark Fear Combo- THIS would be the ultamate solo tool. Come on, dark an Fear in one click, NO MANA! Ooooooh, makes me weak in the knees.

4) Some New kind of DoT, that would stack with our other ones. Would be like a cherry on top of the whole class, a new DoT type at the end. The would mean, like 7 diffrent kinds of stackable DoT lines.

5) Screaming Terror. Yeah, a clickable Terror item would ROCK!

As for the rest, at 55th, is mana ever a issue? Convergence, I never wanted the spell to begin with.

Now, I know, my ideas are nutz, but hey, who can say I am not being "Uber" and staying in class?
