This Charm quest was introduced with the Serpent's Spine expansion.

This, in a way, is a "hidden" quest, as the NPC only suggests at it… and doesn't reveal exactly what is wanted, nor does it appear as a task window.

This charm is, in fact, better than the Artisan's Charm for non-tradeskillers. However, for you tradeskillers, this Charm has just one Aug Slot, while the Artisan Charm has two.

For this reason, weigh the overall benefit (augs) before you decided to switch. The Serpent Seekers Charm of Lore will appear to have better stats than the Charm of Lore... but once you consider the additional benefits of 2 Augs versus 1 Aug, this is not likely the case. At least, not until you have the Serpent Seekers Charm of Lore close to being fully progressed.

There is also an achievement for finishing this ("Serpent Seeker's Charm of Lore" achievement, under Hero's journey -> Conquest), which can be used to track what you or have not done.

This is a progressive charm that gets increasingly and significantly better with the more items you turn in. However, the charm, itself, is not awarded to you until after about 5 (five) turn ins... and even then, it isn't an obvious reward! With each turn in, you get a task reward window that offers experience as a reward (take it, it's XP).

After the fifth turn in, use the EQ button to look at quest rewards and you should see the option of taking the charm at that point.

If you don't get it then, don't worry! People have reported a varying number of turn-ins before they could actually claim the charm! In any case, you DON'T have to take it at that time! You can just leave it there and claim it when you get ready for it (to save bank space).

This quest involves a lot of running around, a great need for invis and maybe even help to kill or clear MOB's.

In the later stages, it involves raids. To complete this charm, you will have to progress in TSS and beat the high end raid MOB's for the drops you need.

Lastly, people have also reported inconsistent stats after a certain number of turn ins. Be aware that the charm will not necessarily upgrade every turn in, or even every few turn ins.

The quest is ordered by zones and the drops known from each of those zones. As best as is known at this point, the drops and the Charm stats, noted below, are complete.

!!! QUEST NOTES !!!

·         Each item must be turned in individually.

·         The order that you turn items in, does not matter!

·         You will not be allowed to turn in the same item more than once.

·         The way to tell that items are for this quest, is to look at the Lore tab.

·         While many items are ground spawns or similar, you will find that you may have to clear your way to each of them.

·         Many are surrounded by MOB's and you will not be able to loot chest-like items as long as you have aggro on a  MOB.
