Hi guys, I am taking a break from the game for a bit due to some family things going on iRL. If there is anyone else who is doing spell research please let me know so that I can send you some hides/spell scrolls/papyrus.

I will not be taking any new spell requests, at least in the near term.

Thanks for your understanding,

I finally have enough spell scrolls and papyrus to start making Level 51-59 spells for guildies, and I am taking spell orders. I will work on these in the mornings for the next few days and then at my earliest convenience thereafter.

Please parcel me plat (see below for costs) with the name of the spell you want made. 1 parcel per spell request please. You do *NOT* need the spell scroll or the papyrus with the exception of level 60 spells.

- I happily accept donations of spell scrolls and papyrus. I especially need Sooty Fine Runic Papyrus (level 60) as I do not have even my own level 60 spells yet.
- The cleansers and inks cost a lot (up to 250p per spell, out of my pocket before the cost of any player-purchased paper OR failures*)
* Trivial combines fail 5% of the time.

Level:  Guildie Price
<51:  75p
51:  100p
52:  125p
53:  150p
54:  175p
55:  200p 
56:  225p (need badly! only have 1. Avg tlpauctions is 200p so when we run out, I will have to charge 425p per level 56 spell.)
57:  250p
58:  275p
59:  300p (need slightly. We have 9.)

60:  n/a - we don't have any of these spell scrolls / papyrus

Just a heads up that I don't have ANY of my 4 level 60 spells. If anyone has extra L60 necro spells, I could sure use them.

Fine Runic Papyrus (made from Sooty Fine Runic Papyrus) would allow me to craft all of these and, likely, many others. If anyone knows a good source of Sooty Fine Runic Papyrus, I would love to hear where.

Probably the easiest zone to maximize your faction in.

Bandages for the Honeybuggers
What you need:  2,000 bandages
What you do:
1. Give 2,000 bandages to Joogl Honeybugger in the Misty Thicket (you can give him them all at once but note the loss in standing with Coalition of Trade Folk Underground faction - see below. He also gives you vendor junk that you could sell off if your bags are not full.)

What you get (from turning in 2,000):
Deeppockets +2,000
Guadians of the Vale +2,000
Mayor Gubbin +2,000
Merchants of Rivervale +2,000
Coalition of Tradefolk Underground -2,000

If you what to end up amiable to the Coalition of Tradefolk Underground too, you will need to stagger how many bandages you hand in. Do several hundred. Then switch to the Tonics for Groflah quest (below) before handing in the rest.

Tonics for Groflah
What you need:  135 Brewing.
What you do:
1. Go to Ocean of Tears and buy 200 Kioala Nuts
2. Combine 200 Kioala Nuts + Flask of Water in a brew barrel to make 200 Tumpy Tonics
3. Go to the Seafury's Roost in East Freeport.
4. If Tarym Shoontar, Imxil T'brow, or Sir Edwin Motte are up either kill them (watch out though - faction hits!), pick over, or come back later. Personally, I killed Tarym Shoontar for the Surefall hand-in, but came back later if it was anyone else. Sir Edwin Motte's head is used in the NEC epic, so send a NEC a tell if he is up and maybe they will come kill him for you if they still need it.
5. Once Groflah the dwarf is spawned in Seafury's Roost, just give him the 200 Tumpy Tonics.
What you get (from 200):
Coalition of Tradefolk +2,000
Coalition of Tradefolk Underground +2,000
Knights of Truth +2,000
Merchants of Qeynos +1,400

Much of what you need to be non-KOS with Freeport you get while building your Qeynos standing.

INSTALLMENT 1:  Qeynos & Rivervale

Deliver Gharin's Note (evil) to but only do the first 2 steps
What you need: Buy 100+ Crow's Special Brew
What you do:  
1. Find Gharin in South Qeynos. He is outside by day and in a room at the inn by night. Bind by him.
2. Give him 4 unstacked drinks. Receive note.
3. Run through the warrior hall to zone into the catacombs through the secret entrance.
4. Follow the hallway to the right. Invis so the SK mobs don't attack you. Find Nomaria and give her Gharin's note. (You can do this even if you are KOS.)
5. Gate. Destroy the note Nomaria gave you.
6. Repeat.
What you get (net of two sets of changes):
Bloodsabers +50
Guards of Qeynos +43
Antonius Bayle +7
Corrupt Qeynos Guards -5
Circle of Unseen Hands -12

Buy Blackburrow Stout from Guard Shilstar (NK)
What you need: 5,999gp (it must be gp)
What you do:
1. Go to a bank and turn 600plat into 5,999gp (don't worry - you're only going to use 100 plat worth at a time)
2. Go to the furthest NE portion of NK before the river, find Guard Shilster. Bind.
3. Give him 5gp at a time. (NOTE:  This is why you do 5,999. You can just click BACKSPACE 3x in order to do 200x 5gp turn-ins).
4. Do this 200 times. (Yes, it is a lot of clicking. I did it over 2,000 times now.)
5. When you get to <5,000gp, Gate or Origin back to a bank. Get another 5,999gp. Trust me, it is easier to backspace 3 times than to try and erase what is there and type '5.' You're doing this over and over and over again, after all.

What you get (per trip with 200 turn-ins):
circle of Unseen Hands +200
Corrupt Qeynos Guards +200
Kane Bayle +200
Bloodsabers +200
Guards of Qeynos -200

You also get a bottle of Blackburrough Stout. I ended up with enough to max alc. tol. without even doing brew

I have been doing a lot of factioning on Burnberry in anticipation of the day he peels back his human skin to reveal his true, lizardman self. In case this is of interest to any of you, I thought I would make a faction primer.

What is faction?
The first thing you need to understand is STANDING and how STANDING relates to FACTION.

STANDING:  Your standing is a score from -2000 to +2000 that represents the influence (good or bad) your in-game actions have had. Standing defaults to 0 for all groups you come in contact with until you do something for (or to) them. Standing is easily misunderstood because it is the critical element of Faction. When we talk about “faction hits,” we are actually talking about changes to our STANDING. However, since STANDING is a 1-to-1 aspect of Faction, the literal meaning of what we said ends up being true as well. However, once your STANDING with a group drops to -2000 or hits +2000, you can no longer progress in that direction (but can reverse course).

FACTION:  Faction is the result of Standing plus an adjustment for race and another adjustment for religion. (There is also an adjustment for Alliance and +faction gear, but those are one-off situations and are typically quite intuitive.) Finally, it is unclear if your class also has an inherent adjustment value. I doubt it. I suspect that any adjustment for class is actually handled by the +/- adjustment for religion since your class already restricts your religious choices in EQ. With that said, if you try to buy from Dubious NPC merchants, they will often call out your class when telling you that they will not sell to you.

So what are my race and religion adjustments?
I would love to get my hands on those tables, but have not found one yet. If you do, please share in comments.

You can calculate the net of your character's adjustments by subtracting your standing from 2000 and then adding your current faction with an

Endorse as well. Just one clarification, /assist main only works for the MA that is designated for your current group. You have to use /assist raid on the raid.

  • All Dragons & Giants are belly casters
  • High-level golems are immune to most everything. You can try your fire DoTs, but if those fail just fallback to helping mez on charm breaks and life flowing the MT (original era) or (in Kunark era) twitching healers
  • The Maestro of Rancor is a partial belly caster. Do NOT cross the max melee range, but if you stand just behind them, you will land your spells far more often.
  • More coming soon.

Raiding Necromancers
Our job is not complicated, but there is a golden rule all raiding necros should follow, and there are a few tips that may be new to some, or simply a good refresher for others.

Never be the first one to DoT a mob unless you are 100% certain you are on the assist target.
Primary raid role:  DPS via DoT.
Secondary raid roles:

  • Charm pet backup (Screaming Terror)
  • Pre-Mez assist during ‘oh shit’ moments (Screaming Terror)
  • Buffs:  Disease Resist and DMF (Levitation + Poison Resist e.g., Trakanon)
  • Heals: vis Bond of Death + Life Flow (1 necro only)
  • (Come Kunark) Mana Batteries during gathering (mages – CoH), buffing (CLR, ENC, SHM), Cheal chains (any time we would have been using Life Flow in Original), and raid recovery (rezzers without clicky stick)

Assist Hotkeys:
I use two hotkeys:

  • /assist raid
  • /assist Burta [or MT’s name]

[Why two keys? Sometimes raid assist is wonky and bounces. A 2nd key solves this 99% of the time.
Bind it to a key:  My /assist raid key is bound to my right arrow key. I mash it twice, a few seconds apart before starting DoTs.
It is better to lose DPS then to make mezzable mobs unmezzable when there are multiples in camp.

Target Cycling & Key Binding:
I learned all of this playing my enchanter because it was mandatory to being good at my primary function.

My question is actually about bidding.

When we do unofficial raids on off nights or after official raiding has ended, I assume we are randoming rather than bidding DKP since DKP is not earned on those events? (eg a Monday night trek into open world Fear, Sky, or Hate say).

Actually I guess that’s two assumptions I’m hoping to get confirmation on:
1. DKP is earned on official raid nights only (Ie Wed Sat Sun)
2. DKP is only bid (spent) on official raid nights too.

Accurate or no?

Skill 203.

To keep it simple, I charge guildmates 50p for any spell that uses a hide OTHER than Fine Supple Runic and 100p for those that use the Fine Supple Runics. This cost *includes* the hide and inevitable failures even at trivial and is basically more or less at-cost.

Do I need that hide? If you want to donate hides to me, I will gladly take them. I try to keep a handful of all types for odd requests. I am no longer buying hides though.


Level 58 spells are trivial at 200. Once scrolls are introduced in Kunark, I will begin production in hopes of getting a lot of raiders their low 50 spells ASAP.

When the expansion hits I could certainly use your help.

As the date gets closer I will post additional info such as crafted/dropped/quested spell lists for all classes and the types of scrolls and hides needed. I’m hoping for a bit of help from my guildmates here. Even just access to supply at reasonable or discounted prices v tlpauction average has real value to me. Donations will not be turned away either.
