Killed Neh'Ashiir in COM for the second time today and he dropped Torch of the Elements. It simply says NO DROP weight 0.0 Class: none Race: none

The common drop on Neh'Ashiir is the Caster shield, if the torch drops, he doesn't drop a shield. I'm assuming the torch is an Uncommon drop.

Neh'Ashiir is pretty easy to kill - need some good melee and cleric to heal them - he is very resistant to fire and magic - pretty much need a wizard to do any kind of spell damage - saying that, he can be done with a strong group of 6.

Ok another bit of information - Neh'Ashiir was changed from a KOS mob to Warmly. This means once you have killed the Reaver (50% chance another reaver will pop directly after, or neh'Ashiir) a non aggro neh'ashiir will spawn - this give you time to sit, heal and med up.

This change was added in order to let the shaman class give an item to him for part of their epic quest. you obviously don't have to give him anything - but the non aggro is very helpful - especially if you get unlucky and get lots of reavers pop one after another. BE SURE to tell the melee not to attack when Neh'Ashiir spawns - or you won't have a chance to heal up =)
www.eqmaps.com has a nice map of COM. The enterence can be found in EJ at about pos 300 neg 1900.

one more thing - once you walk through the secret wall and up the air like ramp to the first house be very careful, have a monk or experienced pller clear the entire building before entering. If you all run up the ramp, you will get about 15 adds all at once. Remember to bring a rogue to open the door to second and third house. Reaver is in 3rd house - to kill it - pull it to second house - there is a pit in the middle of the 3rd house =P

Ok - I hope this information helps - I didn't want to be an invisible lurker just getting info from other people and not helping out myself.

Addition to above post - a strong group of 6 would be heavy melee, cleric, enchanter, rogue, you (Magician) of about level 57 - 60.

I'd suggest taking two groups of six if your lower level. In fact - to be safe take two groups of six on your first run to get familiar with the place.

The Equest NPC in FV says get the dirt from slix something or other. The NPC Sliziks the Mighty spawns in the very back cell in the jail (The Hole). There are about 5 Rat Warrior spawns (about level 45 - 49).

Need a group of six (50+) to get set up in jail. I camped there for about two hours, but Sliziks never spawned. If I can get another group together, I'll go back. He is confirmed to drop a very nice dagger - no confirmation on the Dirt of Underfoot.

I got Holy Dirt of Brell on a random elemental and rock golem. I don't think this is our quest item, as out quest npc says something about slix something.

I know there are many people reading this forum - I hope people will share any information they find =)

You're doing good so far on the quest guys. But its starting to turn into an argument. I have read all posts and I can tell we are getting near. But in the last 2 posts, most people are just arguing instead of going and and DOING the stuff. Why doesnt everyone just get a group together and start camping the wurms in the burning woods. Why talk and guess about it? Go DO it and see.
Just my 2 cp.

Hey guys, i got an idea, the burning embers have been said to drop off the dragon in skyfire(but only one person says so) i usually won't check that out unless multiple people can verify that (and with a dragon raid there had to be atleast 40 peopel there).

But i like the idea of it being a pick up item. varient said "its dropping but no one has found it" how can it drop if no one found it? so anyrate keeping in with the short distance from here and notable wurm-kind. obviously skyfire/burning woods.

before you just regaurd this as a post restating what has happened, has anyone checked around all the dragon statues in SF? there are a fair many of them, and statues are for notable things, and they are wurm like(also the dragons represent veeshan who is wurm like but is a god not a wurm).

So check around the base, between the legs, in their mouth/eyes, i know there are a few of them there but its something that you can do with a few people to help, and i'm sure someone on one server doing this will be at a particular dragon at almost every minute so lets see.

I'm not high enough to take part in this search but I'm watching with interest.

WRT the Elemental Binder. The Hole has Elemental Channelers, Capturers and others. Could this be a rare spawn in the Hole no one has seen yet? The message is has enough ambiguity for it to be a mob as well as an item, and generally with items they give a bit more info than "the world beneath". Good hunting all!

I was reading through this thread and the previous, and I had an idea regarding the Elemental Binder. The NPC says in '...the world below', correct? What if that phrase is not referring to the entire world below, but rather the specific zone below the Plane of Air? You drop down into East Freeport when you plunge off the sky islands, so perhaps a clue can be found there...or it may be a good idea to explore the ocean floor where you fall to see if anything can be found in the vicinity.

Just speculation on my part.

"The world below" could also refer to The Hole. Thanks to Silvas on the very informative post on Neh'Ashiir.

Mongo, actually hon that's not a bad suggestion, "World below" could mean exactly just that. Having said that I am also still of the mind that the Binder drops from the Hole, possibly a rare drop from Master Yeal. Tried a few times to get a raid down to him but never seem to get lucky enough. As for the "Dirt" drops, they seem to be coming off of Golems atm, VI prolly got thier loot tables mixed up again (See mages in najena and gators in CT as an example hehe)
Oh well, here's hopeing we mages can crack this quest one day, preffereably before we reach retirement age =P

Oh well I can safely say there is nothing on the sea floor in E.Fp scoured it fully in grid fashion...nada, except a shark and a "locked Chest" (-337 -1114).

A couple of language comments.

1. The verant person saying it's dropping but hasn't been found. Dropping is generally used to refer to an item being on a killed mob. The phrase here can well mean, and IMO probably means, that no one has killed the right mob and had the item drop. This might mean the mob hasn't been found yet (e.g., like the mob reported to be swimming in lava hadn't been found at one point), or it might mean it hasn't been killed enough yet to see the drop on it.

Some of the quests need certain hand-ins to be done to trigger a spawn. Maybe we haven't yet found the trigger. As for confirming it's dropping, that means he went and made sure the mob is in game, and that it can drop the item, whether he checked code, or went on test and killed some himself, or how he tested we don't know.

2. The world below: the phrase refers to a sky item and two others "in the world below".
Clearly, the phrase means "below the sky plane", i.e. anywhere in non-plan Norrath, and this is further confirmed by the other item of the two being in SK, a zone that isn't "below" in any other way than below the plane of sky.

I too am wondering if handing in the rykar book to skyfire guy would trigger a mob, but since he asks for it, it seems unlikely. Would be interesting for someone more tolerant of losing the item than me to try

I was thinking of other mobs that arent hunted much or places that arent explored much....2 came to mind:

Deepwater Goblins -

Oasis...I can say that I have never been under that water!

Lake Rathe...Ditto!

If people havent been hunting the goblins deep in their lair then it could be possible.

Just a thought!

Mage luck that the Elemental Binder will drop from a mob like Faydedar *grin*

Now there's a mob that does not get taken down much!!!

Good luck all and let's figure this thing out...

Well I was at the deepwater goblins under Lake Rathe all day Sunday, and killed many of them to help a cleric on her epic quest. Nothing for a Magician dropped. Wish it did. I was there for over 4 hours, so pretty sure it is not there....

I haven't started the quest yet as I dont have the Staffs of Mastery...

About turning in the rykar book...
I think that's a good idea. Maybe it will make something spawn. Yeah, maybe the book is a pain to get, but are we ever going to get anywhere unless we try things? Nope.
Its possible the Elemental Binder is an NPC, as many have said. Sounds like a good name for a mob in The Hole.
Also, if someone said they found the burning embers from Black Scar(I think) then go camp it an find out. Even if it's not substantially supported, might as well try it, seems to make sense to be from him anyway. "a notable wurm kind". Kill all the wurms in the burning woods. Burning embers would make much sense to be in the burning woods. I think that everyone is trying too hard. The answer is probably staring us in the face. Just go kill everything in the burning woods! Especially anything that resembles a wurm!
As for the dirt of underfoot. Its on "Slix something or other". SLIX, not SLIZix the mighty(from The Hole). I doubt its on him. Someone posted something about a Slix being in burning woods(I think it was that zone). Try camping him.
Anyway, we are soooo close. Get this thing solved people! I wish I was high enough to help, more than make suggestions.

Its gonan be in the HOLE man. The "of underfoot" label is on a fewe otther items there. The history of the game dictates that underfoot realtes to the hole. Burning woods does not fall under the history of the underfoot.

Going to camp Sliziks the Mighty tomorrow for several hours. I'll post back here with any info on the dirt of Underfoot.

OK, as for the Burning Embers =/ There are 20+ servers with people killing nameds in both Skyfire and BW on a daily basis and nobody has see them drop. If I had to speculate, I'd say the Burning Embers drop off Talendor.

As for the Elemental Binder - I'd guess that the Boss in The Hole drops it. He's only been killed on our server once since the quests came out, and the drop could be a rare.

I'm guessing of course, but the items are not supposed to be easy to attain.

Anyway, keep looking =)

I fought in DW gobos in lake rathe and whil clearing the tower I had a "thing" in target called: Deep, conned red and indiff to me (lvl 53)

couldnt figure out what it was cuz I couldnt clear the tower fast enough to keep up with the spawn, might be a water elemental? perhaps it has an elemental binder hehe who knows, but thats something no one tried (or at least I didnt hear about it)

If u know anything about "Deep" please post it. its an underwater entrance at island straigh ahead of dock at zone to South Karana.

good luck all and take care (careful keep waterstones rdy, they dispell )

Killed Master Yael 4 times persanally and have yet to see the binder on him (unless of course it is an uber rare drop, which I would fully believe after reading Gordon's (a.k.a Dumbasses) response to a mage on the Verant board).

Pardon me if i don't know anything because my highest character is only 26, but has anyone tried killing that shark in EFP ocean, and what's in that "locked chest"

now, i know i'm a dummie, but someone said that if you fall off an island in the plane of air, you land in EFP. I find i very difficult to belive that "the world below" simply means ANYWHERE in norrath. No clues, no nothing. From this information admittedly based entirely on posts from this forum), i'd have to say that the elemental binder is found (somehow) in east freeport.

could be a guard, could be a shark, could be one of those useless npc's fishing off the edge of the docks, and could be that locked chest.

Also, if it is indeed true that you land in the ocean, i might be true that the "world below" could also include the ocean of tears.

It's not necessarily a new spawn, it's not necessarily a rare spawn. it's probably somehting that has been overlooked repeatedly. someone on alahkazam (or however it is you spell it) went through a list of all the zones logically and came up with a list of all the most likely zones to find something for the quest.

Also, i really don't think "the world below" means the hole. The only part of this quest that has more than one item from the same spot is the najena part of it. if the dirt of the underfoot (based on other items being dropped in the hole being called "underfoot")probably is the item from the hole. sliks something COULD mean sliznik (or whatever).

As for burning embers, burning woods DOES seem like the most logical place. it would be a short walk, and it (according to the posts) has a lot of "notable wurm-kinds" running around it. Why it hasen't been confirmed yet, i don't know.

Anyway, i hope this might jumpstart something, but i doubt it.

Both are from Kedge Keep. Oh and that slix guy in burning woods is for the veeshan's peek key quest if I remember correctly.

Deep is believed to be part of the Monk's Epic Quest. They have to find a Fist of Fire, Air, Earth, and Water. So far they have the Fire and Air, but haven't been able to find Earth. Deep procs Fist of Water, and Fire and Air proced Fist of their respective element.

Biggerin...the Locked Chest I found was an item thats laying on the ground beside the shark I mentioned, probably used for some lowbie quest somewhere /shrug. But to clarify it wasn't a chest that needed lock picking.

/beginning to despair now...has to camp Quillmane *shoots self in head*

Think I'll make a rogue =P
