Faction

As an Enchanter, I've always worried about faction. I'm sure Iksar are in the same boat, so I decided to look up every quest I could find that gave only positive faction hits, and no negative ones. The now defunct Iksar Faction Guide goes into great detail for Iksars, but it involves a lot of back-and-forth with raising one faction, lowering another, and then going back to raise the faction you lowered.

Some of these quests require a minimum faction to be able to complete. Some you will not be able to do without killing various groups of mobs (namely, Gnolls, Deathfist Orcs, Kobolds and Aqua Goblins) or without an illusion, a wolf form, a faction-raising spell, a sneak, an invis, or a feign death (verify this last one?). Before going to do any of these quests, make sure to con the applicable quest NPC and all other NPCs within aggro range using your chosen faction-raising method to make sure you are safe.

A note of advice from the defunct Iksar Faction Guide: When doing quests, I have found out that one can turn in up to 16 items at a time. This was only verified with quest that only have one item to turn in, though. You can hand in 4 stacks of 4 of that item, and you will get 16 faction hits. I have tried with more, but it does not work. I also suggest switching to windowed mode while trading. That way, you will not have to reopen your inventory after each turn in.

Faction Table

Although there are numerous player derived faction tables floating around the Internet, the actual faction table information is buried in the game executable itself. Other than the introduction of the new Ally faction during the release of Velious, the faction ranges never changed during Classic EQ.

The game executable never defines an upper or lower bound for the top and bottom most factions; that is handled server side.

According to Uthgaard the P99 values are:

Ally: 1051 to 2000

Warmly: 701 to 1050

Kindly: 451 to 700

Amiable: 51 to 450

Indifferent: -49 to 50

Apprehensive: -449 to -50

Dubious: -699 to -450

Threatening: -1049 to -700

Scowls: -2000 to -1050

Release (eqgame.exe dated 02-17-1999) Velious (eqgame.exe dated 06-28-2001) Live EQ (as of October 2014) ref EQEmu Source Code ref
Ally Did not exist Ally 1100 to ? Ally 990 to 2010 Ally 1101 to ?
Warmly 750 to ? Warmly 750 to 1099 Warmly 750 to 989 Warmly 701 to 1100
Kindly 500 to 749 Kindly 500 to 749 Kindly 500 to 749 Kindly 401 to 700
Amiable 100 to 499 Amiable 100 to 499 Amiable 100 to 499 Amiable 101 to 400
Indifferent 0 to 99 Indifferent 0 to 99 Indifferent 0 to 99 Indifferent 0 to 99

Dubious -500 to -101 Dubious -500 to -101 Dubious -500 to -101 Dubious -700 to -101
Threatening -750 to -501 Threatening -750 to -501 Threatening -750 to -501 Threatening -999 to -701
Scowls -? to -751 Scowls -? to -751 Scowls -1990 to -751 Scowls ? to -1000

Note: Most NPCs who are low enough level will often not attack if they are Threateningly or Scowls. Undead will almost always attack, no matter what the level difference is. Threateningly will attack, but usually only if you remain in their aggro area for a period of time. Scowls will immediately attack.

Orc Scalp Collecting

Highpass Hold


Captain Ashlan spawns in two different areas, both are in the pass itself not the keep. One is up the steps near the Kithicor Forest end above the orcs, the other is near the gnoll camp at the East Karana end, also above the pass. He tends to walk around a lot.

You say, 'Hail, Captain Ashlan'

Captain Ashlan says 'Greetings, traveler! I am Captain Ashlan of the Highpass Guards. I keep watch over my men and the volunteers here at the East Gate. It's been a busy [job] here lately, with the [orc raids] and all.'

You say, 'What job?'

Captain Ashlan says 'We're short-handed around here, as usual. Would you like to help us out with the [Volunteer Watch]?'

You say, `What Volunteer Watch?'

Captain Ashlan says 'The Volunteer Watch guards the entry gates of Highpass. Since the [orc raids] are becoming more and more frequent, it's a busy job. But it can pay well, depending on how many [orcs] you slay.'

You say, 'What orcs?'

Captain Ashlan says 'One of the orc clans of Kithicor Woods has been trying to expand their territory. Small orc raiding parties are frequently rushing the East Gate. Without the [Volunteer Watch] helping us out, Highpass would probably be overrun by those vile beasts.'

Turn in an Orc Scalp (you may turn in up to four at once).

Captain Ashlan says 'Great work! Maybe you can help us out again sometime?'

You gain experience!!

You receive 5 copper from Captain Ashlan.

Inert Potion =

Erudin Palace


Toresian Fhabel is at 727.01, 804.42, 35.13 in Erudin Palace.

You say, 'Hail, Toresian Fhabel'

Toresian Fhabel says 'Welcome, my friend! We are the Craftkeepers. We study the circle of magic called enchantment. What circle do you [study]?'

You say, 'i will study enchantment'

Toresian Fhabel says 'Then I welcome you into our circle. It is good to see new blood.'

This spawns a Slansin in the Vials of Vitality (jewelry shop). The Real Slansin wears a red robe. The fake Slansin looks like a merchant. (screenshots needed)

Fake Slansin (merchant) option

You say, 'I wish to assist Toresian'

Toresian Fhabel says 'Ahhhhh _______. Slansin used to have need of those potions, however he mysteriously disappeared long ago. The only person I know of who still wants them is a cleric of the Church of Marr in Freeport.'

Give Slansin the Inert Potion.

Slansin says 'Ha!! What a fool!! I have stolen another potion to add to the crate. I shall make a fortune!! The real Slansin is in back. Now it is time for me to leave.'

Real Slansin (red robe) option

You can kill the real Slansin to get the fake Slansin to spawn.[1] Alternatively, if you turn in the Potion to the Real Slansin, the real Slansin will despawn (giving an opportunity for fake Slansin to spawn).

Take the letter to Falia Frikniller in North Freeport. Note she is on Merchants of Rivervale faction and may not deal with you if your faction is too low (indifferent works):

Way bigger than humble little Rivervale. That's where I'm from. I'm working on setting up my own little business here, Falia's Foot Combs and Footwear, it'll be called. But, I don't have anything to sell yet, so check back in a couple of weeks. Safe travels to ye, friend.'

Hand her the letter:

Falia Frikniller says 'Heh, that good for nothing fool. I've been here for over a month already, and I haven't seen him yet. Bah, anyway, could you take this back to him for me? It was our grandfather's lucky necklace. He passed it down to our father, and now onto my brother. Knowing that little worm, Grenny, he'll probably trade it for a mug of ale. Oh well, thanks for delivering the letter, friend. Good day to you, and safe travels.'

You gain experience!!

Receive a Broken Heirloom Necklace in return, which you can take to Gren:

Gren Frikniller says 'What's this? Oh, ol' Grandpa Frikniller's lucky necklace, huh? I'll bet this broken piece of junk won't even get me a sip of ale up at the bar. And lucky? How lucky could this thing be? Poor gramps was lonely and copperless his whole life. Bah!! Oh, well. Here's some coin for your efforts, thanks, _____'

You gain experience!!

You receive ~1 silver from Gren Frikniller.

Lenka's Pouch

East Freeport


Toala

You say, 'Hail, Toala Nehron'

Toala Nehron says, 'I am Toala Nehron. You must be another young warrior aspiring to join the ranks of the Steel Warriors. We welcome all who would try. When you [have time], there is a friend of mine I would like you to check on.'

You say, 'I have time.'

Toala Nehron says, 'I have a friend by the name of [Lenka Stoutheart]. She reported to me that her ship was broken into and someone stole a pouch of hers. Could you go look into it for me? Just tell her Toala sent you. Oh, and pay no mind to the walking mountain by her. That will only be Bronto, her navigator. Thanks, friend.'

You say, 'who is Lenka Stoutheart?'

Toala Nehron says, 'Lenka Stoutheart is an old friend of mine. I trained with her in my younger days when the Steel Warriors sent me to train in the ways of the Wolves of the North, the barbarian warriors of Halas. She is now an adventurer of great sorts. She travels from continent to continent aboard the Blue Beast, her ship. The Last time I had heard from her she was docked in East Karana.'

Find Lenka Stoutheart at the dock tavern, in the daytime.

Lenka and Bronto

You say, 'Hail, Lenka Stoutheart'

Lenka Stoutheart says 'Hi, kid! You seem to be a stranger in these parts. Heed my words, this city is dangerous to new blood!'
Bronto Thudfoot says 'You said it, boss! Stay clear of taking sides and you should be just fine, young one .'

You say, 'Toala sent me'

Lenka Stoutheart says 'She does not even have the courtesy to come herself. Some old friend!! Listen, some rogue in this city broke into the [Beast] and stole a pouch containing a voucher ticket for a part I need to repair the Beast. I can't get the part back without the ticket. I did not see the rogue. I did not sleep on the Beast that night. Bronto was there. Ask him if he saw the rogue.'

You say, 'What is the Beast?'

Lenka Stoutheart says 'You're joking, right? You have never heard of the Blue Beast?!! She is the fastest ship in Norrath. She made the [Kunark run] in under three weeks. She was designed by [Bronto].'

You say, 'What Kunark run?'

Lenka Stoutheart says 'The Kunark run is the most dangerous run between Freeport and [Firiona Vie], in Kunark. If the seas don't rip your hull to splinters and the pirates and sea wyrms don't kill you, you can make a quick run back and forth, avoiding any unwanted inspections.'

You say, 'What about Firiona Vie?'

Lenka Stoutheart says 'Firiona Vie is an elven outpost on the continent of Kunark. Every so often I run supplies to and from there. Do not even think about asking me to take you there. It will be months before I can make improvements on the Blue Beast to make it impervious to aerial attacks.'

You say, 'Hail, Bronto Thudfoot'.

You say, 'Did you see the rogue?'

Bronto Thudfoot says 'I had quite a bit of grog that night and it was very dark. What I do remember was seeing a tall woman in a dress run from the docks. She sort of smelled, too. Like fish. I know it was the docks, but this woman had a real stench to her. Like dried fish baking in the sun. That is all I remember. It was too dark to see anything but her [silhouette].'

You say, 'Her silhouette?'

Bronto Thudfoot says 'Yeah!! The silhouette looked like a very brawny woman. It had to be a woman. The silhouette was surely that of one with a short skirt and long hair.'

This description matches that of a fisherman named Brunar Rankin.

Brunar

You say, 'Hail, Brunar Rankin'

Brunar Rankin says 'How are you? Please excuse my stench. I fish all day and night just to feed my large family. You look like an adventurer. That must be exciting. I am but a humble fisherman. Maybe someday we shall both be rich. You by your treasures and me by my catch.'

You say, 'What did you steal from Lenka?'

Brunar Rankin says 'How dare you accuse me of being a thief!? I labor hour after hour trying to catch one fish which will bring me one copper piece to buy one slice of bread which I will split into five pieces to feed me, my sick wife and three little children, one of whom has the plague!! Poor little Repi. Now please, leave this humble little fisherman alone!'

If you stay with Brunar he eventually goes up into the Seafarers Roost and gives his 'Catch" to Gregor the bartender. If asked about Brunar, Gregor hints that he steals for him. Gregor says he will put the catch down in the storeroom, which by the way leads down to the Thieves guild.

The L.S. Pouch can be found between a box and a crate in the storage room with the secret door to the thieves guild. Take the pouch to Lenka and she says this and that about the stuff was stolen and tells you that you can have the junk in the pouch.

From the pouch you can either get a snapped fishing pole (which can be given to Olunea Miltin at the dock) or a Moggok's Right Eye.

The faction hits for returning the pouch are:

You either receive Snapped Pole or Moggok's Right Eye.

We now await [last season's winner] to step forward with the winning ticket - ticket number 16568. His prize is the key to the royal suite.'

You say, 'Who was last season's winner?'

Sansa Nusk says 'Uhh - ummm - uhhh - Fabian does not know this, but his strings are - uh - made of - uh - troll guts.'

You say, 'Where do I get troll guts?'

Trouble is, trolls are scarce around these parts, thank the gods, but Fabian breaks his strings as fast as I find suppliers.

Anyhow, if you find one out in the Karanas, bring me his gut and I can make the strings to take to Fabian.'

You need a Bag of Troll Guts which drops off Zahal the Vile in North Karana. Hand them into Sansa.

Bottle of Red Wine

Neriak 3rd Gate


(Must be Indifferent to Dark Bargainers) *was able to do turn-in as an apprehensive, agnostic Gnome. Was able to do turn-in as apprehensive Ogre shaman.Was able to turn-in as apprehensive iksar monk/shaman.

Find Lokar To`Biath in the library of the 3rd Gate at +895, -1245. Responded to hails as an indifferent agnostic DE enchanter.

You say, 'Hail, Lokar To`Biath.'

Lokar To`Biath says, 'I am the Scribe of Innoruuk. If you do not have business with me, begone!'

You say, 'Are you a Scribe of Dal?'

Lokar To`Biath says 'The Scribes of Dal? All of them are long since [dead].. or at least most would say that.'

You say, 'Why are they Dead?'

Lokar To`Biath says 'Perhaps, perhaps not. I cannot remember, but perhaps Innoruuk would help me remember should you tithe him a bottle of red wine from the Blind Fish.'

Give him a single Red Wine. It can be from anywhere, not just the Blind Fish. (Note for p99: Giving 4 bottles only results in 1 reward)

Lokar To`Biath says 'Ah, yes, let me pray to our god.. Yes, Innoruuk has given me wisdom. A Scribe of Dal still exists, disguised as a barkeep in the Blind Fish. This information will not help you though, for she has sworn a [vow] of silence and will not speak of the Dal.'

You gain experience!!

Note: This is one of the best quests to gain faction with the Dark Bargainers (Neriak Residents) and with Dreadguard Outer and Dreadguard Inner as it boosts the factions without giving you faction loss with anyone else. 151 turn-ins will take an Iksar Necromancer or Shadow Knight from scowling to dubious with the Neriak guards. It took between 401 and 460 turn-ins to get an Iksar Monk to dubious, without any other faction work. The experience reward is roughly 1/40th of a blue bubble at level 3, so the experience benefits quickly diminish.
Meanwhile, 540 hand-ins was still not enough to take a wood-elf rogue to dubious with the guards even long after the citizens started to con warmly; it was about 700 turn-ins until the guards stopped wanting to murder her. Dark elves much really hate their woodland cousins...
26 turn ins brought Lokar To`Biath (the quest giver) from the bottom of Kindly to the bottom of Warmly, indicating that the quest likely gives +10 Dark Bargainers faction per turn in.

Note: With Velious the spell Form of the Great Bear allows Shaman's to do this quest or atleast talk to him for turnins , If Shamans try for this watch out for the Clerics and Shadow Knights they will want to murder you . I started as Warmly from a Barbarian Shaman so try this idea if you're into faction quest . Pexar Spiritweaver 3/22/16

The quest is sponsored by the League of Antonican Bards. Faction hits are...

You gain experience!!


Faction, Kunark

Cabilis Faction

Cabilis contains six main faction groups:

NOTE: In original classic, once your faction was capped with Iksar Troopers, you were unable to raise it with anywhere else in Cabilis as they all became capped (even if you were at scowling). I'm not sure if it is this way currently on P99, but please be aware of the possibility. It was later fixed on live.

Pre-Emptive Step: Get an Overthere Hammer, as later stages will involve trashing Venril Sathir faction. So, go to The Overthere, and kill 80+ sarnak berserkers (lvl 29-33) to collect sarnak war braids to hand in to Captain Rottgrime. The best camp spot, if you don’t have a tracker, is the couple of buildings at the south of the zone, north of the Frontier Mountains zone line; a number of static spawns and wanderers. Berzerkers seem to be on the general sarnak spawn table.

As soon as you hit amiable, go to the undead foreman, just south of the ships, and hand him a jade (only one required, although he talks about “filling [his] eyesockets”. Bingo.

Step 1: Mass Slaughter

Outcast Iksar in Warsliks Wood - Iksar Bandits(lvl 9-10), Marauders (warrior, lvl 14-16), Manslayers (lvl 17-19), Pariahs (lvl 19-23), Exiles (lvl 23-26). There are six Exiles in a group in the SW corner of the zone next to a lake that are relatively easy to find. This seems to be the only way to raise Brood of Kotiz faction, and also raises Legion of Cabilis

SKs need to be non-KoS with necros; necromancers interested in doing the skullcap quest need to reach amiable with Brood of Kotiz. 150 – 200 iksar kills will allegedly take you to glowers with necros. There are several camps of low level iksar outcasts that you can use for this: the caves in Warsliks Woods, before the zone to LOIO; several camps of three in huts in WW; and the camp of four NE of the explorer tower in LOIO. The cave in Field of Bone is on a very slow respawn timer, so I don’t recommend there. The caves in WW have 12 – 15 spawns on a 16 minute timer, but you need to pay full attention for 4-6 minutes to kill them all. The hut SE of the zone to The Overthere has the advantage that you can let him do most of the killing; overnight here should be enough for faction.

Goblins in Warsliks Wood These give faction for the Legion of Cabilis and for the Inhabitants of Firiona Vie. Good to raise this faction if you think you'll end up getting KoS to Venril Sathir eventually as you will be unable to return to the outpost in The Overthere.

There are many level ranges of these. A Goblin Thief (lvl 2), A Goblin Scout (lvl 2-4), A Goblin Watcher (lvl 3-5), A Goblin Outrider (lvl 5-6), A Goblin Hextracer (lvl 7-8), A Goblin Hunter (lvl 8-10), A Goblin Bonecaster (lvl 10-12), A Goblin Skirmisher (lvl 11-13), A Goblin Witchdoctor (lvl 13-15), A Goblin Battlemaster (lvl 14-16), A Goblin Bloodtracer (lvl 16-18), A Goblin Aggressor (lvl 17-19), A Goblin Pit Fighter (lvl 19-21), A Goblin Soothsayer (lvl 19-21), A Goblin Warrior (lvl 20-22), A Goblin Coward (lvl 20-23), Goblin Warlord (lvl 24), A Goblin Messenger (lvl 38), A Frantic Goblin (lvl 40), A Shady Goblin (lvl 40).

The lower level goblins are closer to the West Cabilis and Field of Bone entrances, while the higher level ones are in forts in the center of the zone. See the map for details.

Alternate Step 1: Item Turn-In Quests

If you can, the fastest way to get Legion faction is to collect weapons in Veksar (lvl 55+) and hand them in the the NPC in Lake of Ill Omen until you reach dubious with the Legion. I haven’t done this, but I believe roughly 10 or more hand ins (40 weapons) will be required. If you kill explorers until you have 6 stacks of knives, you should have high enough legion faction to hand in.

The next best is the explorer knives quest; you will need roughly 6 stacks of these to max your faction. (Note: This is Velious era content not yet added on P99.) 4 – 5 stacks will be required to reach non-KoS with other factions; another 4 – 5 stacks if you need to become warmly or better. The explorers are in Lake of Ill Omen, between the Warsliks Woods and Cabilis zones. NOTE: This will bring down your Fironia Vie faction!

Step 2: Bring Out Yer Dead!

Hand in bone chips in vast numbers to Trooper Mozo in Field of Bone until you are non-KoS to merchants, shamans, etc. This is slower than the explorer knives, but without the FV faction hits. Note that the wandering crusaders in the area (Quarg and Bhodli) are on different factions. One is on Crusaders and the other is on Scaled Mystics.

Once you reach dubious to Iksar troopers head over to Kurn's Tower in Field of Bone or any other spot where you can get a LOT of bonechips (this will take many bags of bonechips). Kurn's Tower is the most convenient place because of its location.

There are two ways to do the turn-in:

  • Option 1 is to quickly feed as many stacks of 4 bonechips(remember 4 stacks at a time) to Trooper Mozo in the 4-6 minute window and retreat before the Crusaders go on patrol, however this makes it difficult and the Crusaders might not even leave and return in sync making it even harder.
  • Option 2 is to stand behind Trooper Mozo in the corner by that lamp thing right up against the wall. SLOWLY take tiny steps forward until you are able to hand Trooper Mozo the stacks of bonechips(you're not close enough if you're right in the corner behind the lamp).

You should be able to give as many stacks as you want from this location WHILE the Crusaders walk past.. this is the method I used.. it was quite unnerving to have some red at level 48 shadowknight go walking past you repeatedly at that distance without turning me into a bloodstain on the ground, but it MUCH easier to give lots of bonechips without interruption.

Chardok Faction

It is possible to become non-kos with Chardok's Sarnak faction, Brood of Di`Zok, by killing hundreds of goblins in the Temple of Droga. This is useful for pulling (especially in AoE groups) and corpse retrieval.

Faction, Velious

First here are the general bonuses of each faction.

Coldain = Great Utility city, Coldain Ring and Shawl quests. Armor is sub par in comparison to the others.

CoV = HoT quest capable. Most HoT Quest items are on par if not better than many NToV drops. Armor is on par with Kael gear, generally has better resists but lower AC.

Kael = Kael armor is about the best there is in game aside from NToV drops, which you will be able to farm without faction worries. Dain Heads and Yelink Heads to Tormax generally result in the best rewards.

  • Coldain Faction = Easy, by killing Kromrif Giants to raise Coldain.
  • CoV Faction = Easy, by killing Kromzek Giants will raise CoV faction.
  • Kael = Moderate, Kill CoV mobs to raise Kromzek, and Coldain mobs to raise Kromrif. Kill boss mobs in those zones to raise Tormax faction.

Coldain and CoV at the same time: Easy, killing giants of all types will eventually get you the faction for both. This is probably where most of CT is sitting right now. You have access to the SS quest armor, HoT quests, Kael mob drops, and Coldain Ring/Shawl quest as well as the utility of both cities.

Coldain and Kael at the same time: Difficult, steps below on how to do this. End result is that you have access to NToV drops, Kael Quest Armor, Coldain Ring and Shawl quests, utility of both cities, Skyshrine and WW drops.

Steps:

  • 1. Kill Giants till your max ally with Coldain.
  • 2. Kill CoV stuff till your dubious with Kromzek.
  • 3. Kill Coldain till your dubious with Kromrif.
  • 4. Save all Dwarf heads you find while killing coldain.
  • 5. Turn in dwarf heads to max out both giant factions and Tormax faction. Buy extra dwarf heads if you need to, however, they are quite hard to find on the open market.
    • Now you should be max kos to CoV, max ally or close to it for Kael, and hopefully not max kos to Coldain.
  • 6. Kill giants to get Coldain back up to where you want it. But, don't let yourself drop below Ally to giants. Turn in more Coldain heads that you have saved or have bought to keep repairing Kael faction so you can continue to raise Coldain faction and still keep yourself at the faction level you need for the Kael quests.
  • 7. Get extra Tormax faction by killing Velketor the Sorcerer.
    • It may be quite difficult to get ally to both at the same time, but if you can keep yourself with a decent supply of dwarf heads, it should be possibl to stay near the top of each faction and just edge into ally for whatever quest you need to complete. The goal here really is just to keep yourself non kos with Coldain so you can use the city.

CoV and Kael Faction at the same time: Hard, this is probably the most difficult set of factions to max, aside from the CoV+Kael+Coldain. The down side of even attempting to do this is that you will be out of luck when it comes to most raids or high end quests. Its just not worth it. However, it can be done.

  • 1. Max CoV faction by killing giants.
  • 2. Kill Coldain for heads and Kael faction.
  • 3. Kill Dain as much as possible.
  • 4. Turn in heads but don't let yourself go below ally with CoV.
  • 5. Kill Velketor the sorcerer for Kael hits.

Its possible to even get non kos to all 3. Ive herd of one person that is Ally to CoV, Ally to Kael, and currently up to amiable with Coldain. All he pretty much does is faction stuff these days. This is a great option for a 100% raid based Magician, since most magicians are generally the CotH people and during raids their function is mod rod creation to keep clerics healing and wizards nuking. Sorry mages, its just how things go.

If you can sneak you may be able to get this faction work done much easier, as most of the time you can just sneak to get to indiffierent, stand behind the quest giver, and trade the item. Captain Belvos, however, is in a difficult spot to perform this feat, and may require someone thats not kos to kael to chain cast invis on you throughout the trade, or you may be forced to bolt for the zone.
