Walkthrough

You say, 'Hail, Capt Linarius'

Capt Linarius says 'Hail, traveler! You are free to rest within this keep or within any of my towers along the roads to Qeynos. My guards shall keep watch over you. While you tread upon the roads, be warned that there are [local dangers] as well as rumors of [corrupt guards].'

You say, 'What corrupt guards?'

Capt Linarius says 'I have heard rumors of dissension among my guards. I will reward any fine resident for the death of these traitorous guards. If you find you must kill one, bring his guard bracelet back to me. I cannot allow such men among my guards. Be sure they are corrupt, or I shall have your head as well.'

A Guard Bracelet (identifies as "Corrupt Guard Bracelet") drops from Guard McCluskey and Guard Donlan in West Karana (-2913, -2043).

Give the bracelet to Capt Linarius.

Capt Linarius says 'What a pity. Such a promising soldier. I thank you for ridding us of this corruption and offer you this as a reward. It is nothing more than junk which littered the roadways of the Plains of Karana. I hope you can find a use for it.'

You gain experience!! (About 45,000 exp per bracer - compared to the 97,000 exp you get from killing Guard McCluskey or 67,000 exp from killing Guard Donlan)

You receive 8 gold from Capt Linarius.
I had my freshly dinged level 17 High Elf Enchanter loot and turn in 15 bracelets and ended up one or two bracelets from dinging 18. Very good experience, even better than greater lightstones.
It took 21 bracers to level my 18 High Elf Enchanter to 19.
11 bracers got not quite 1/2 way through 19 on the same Enchanter.
21 bracers got a little under 4.5 yellows of 20.
It took 29 bracers to go from level 21 to 22 on the HIE Enchanter.
It took 32 bracers to go from level 22 to 23 on the HIE Enchanter.
It took 37 bracers to go from level 23 to 24 on the HIE Enchanter.
It took 38 bracers to go from level 24 to 25 on the HIE Enchanter.
It took 42 bracers to go from level 25 to 26 on the HIE Enchanter.
It took 46 bracers to go from level 26 to 27 on the HIE Enchanter.
