The quests are great for faction and XP, but they also play directly into progression for the Seed's of Destruction expansion.

You can do these tasks in just about any order, but faction (NPC may not talk to you yet) and the NPC (you have to do the tasks the NPC gives in sequence) will not necessarily allow all tasks to be done in any order.

Because this requires you acquire twenty-two (22) items that you combine to make the Aug, I have "grouped" tasks together, for the “bigger” pieces they are combined into… as well as an order that better insures you have done tasks in a more proper sequence.

NOTE: A great addition with a patch after the release of Seeds of Destruction, was the NPC Tavid Dennant in the Guild Lobby (sitting near the Guild Hall doors)! The great part is that you don't have to hold onto all the pieces or leave these tasks unclaimed to save on bag/bank space. What you do is sell them to him and, when you re ready, buy them back from him (for Chronobines)! Be aware, however, he will only deal with non-combined quest reward pieces and nothing more.

NOTE: Seeds of Destruction, as a "preview," released certain zones into the game, before the actual expansion went live in 2008. Because of this, many players accomplished a number of the tasks in advance (before the pieces for this Aug were being awarded for completing said tasks). It appears that many of these tasks did not offer the aug item the second time around (if you are allowed to do them a second time). Never fear, however, as Tavid Dennant should have your "lost" items for sale.

NOTE: All of these tasks can be done in group format, if not mini-raid format. While players will necessarily need to obtain their own drops, the kill credits are shared by all involved.

THE QUEST(S)

CREST RIGHT FIELD

Man the Defenses          No Cure for Death          Arms of the Dead          Good Seeds

1) COLLECTING: During the course of doing tasks, there are quite a few items you can pre-loot.

To save time and effort, it is would be a good idea to collect them along the way. Many of these items are tradable (so, you can get them from other players or maybe in the Bazaar).

These items are found as loot, ground spawns and/or they can be foraged. Foraging can be done automatically, with a hot key option. If you don't know how to set up and use Hot Buttons and Hot Keys, look here.

The items you can collect (pre-loot) in advance (most of these items do stack and many of them can be found left rotting on corpses) are:

·         Five (5) Handful of Seeds (No Trade, Weight 0.1); drop best off "animal" type MOB's in Oceangreen Village (Good Seeds);

·         One (1) Fine Bear Skin (No Trade, Weight 4.0); semi-rare drop from bears in Oceangreen Village (Paint Supplies);

·         Three (3) Wolf Whiskers (No Trade, Weight 0.1); drops from wolves in Oceangreen Village (Paint Supplies);

·         Four (4) Wild Blueberry Branch (No Trade, Weight 0.3); drops from rats in Oceangreen Village (Paint Supplies);

·         Ten (10) Irregular's Signet Ring (No Trade, Weight 0.1); drops from undead in Oceangreen Hills (Names for the Faceless);

·         Ten (10) Rusted Blade Fragments (No Trade, Weight 3.0); drops from undead in Oceangreen Village (Arms of the Dead);

·         Four (4) Maggot (Weight 0.2); foraged in any "Oceangreen" theme zone, but seems easiest in Temple of Bertoxxulous (Cure the Crud);

·         One (1) Pinecone (Weight 0.5); foraged in Oceangreen Village and Oceangreen Hills (Cure the Crud);

·         One (1) Oceangreen Wheatgrass (Weight 0.1); foraged in Oceangreen Village and Oceangreen Hills (Cure the Crud);

·         One (1) Blackened Deathcap (No Trade, Weight 0.8); found as a common ground spawn or can be foraged in Oceangreen Hills (Salving Grace);

·         One (1) Fetid Flesh (No Trade, Weight 0.8); drops from "skeleton" MOB's in Oceangreen Hills (Salving Grace);

·         One (1) Snake Venom Gland (No Trade, Weight 0.8); drops from "snake" MOB's in Oceangreen Hills (Salving Grace);

·         One (1) Reanimated Bone Dust (No Trade, Weight 0.8); semi-rare drop from "skeleton" MOB's in Oceangreen Hills (Salving Grace).

.

2) OCEANGREEN HILLS: You are looking for Sergeant Bronal Cadran (Level 75).

He is located in the southeast part of the zone, near the path, at a tower under construction.

Hail him and follow along or just try saying, "Useful," to get the task called "Man the Defenses."

.

3) You now need to kill Magus Wentior (Level 74).

He is located just over the hill, to the southeast, amongst other MOB's.

He is undead and can hit for 2K.

He is a static spawn and is all most always up.

.

4) Once Magus Wentior is dead, head back to Sergeant Bronal Cadran.

Hail him to complete the task, "Man the Defenses" and unlock the next task.

You can claim your rewards, to include a Crest Upper Right Field Plate (Magic, Lore, No Trade, Weight 0.0).

Then hail him and follow along, or just try saying "Useful," to get the task called "No Cure for Death."

.

5) OCEANGREEN VILLAGE: You are here to kill fifteen (15) "cultists" ("cultist" is part of their name) (Level 72 to 75).

You should see them around the entrance to the Temple of Bertoxxulous, just south and west of the zone in.

It is best to pull and kill them at the zone in (and any other trash in the way, to also work on the items you need from Step 1). 

.

6) After you have your kills done, carefully make your way to the southwest part of the zone, at the village by the docks.

You are looking for Yvette Miller (Level 35).

She is in the garden or in the building to the far right as you approach the village.

Hail her and follow along, or just try saying, "Find some," to get the task called, "Good Seeds."

.

7) Now give her five (5) Handful of Seeds (see Step 1).

If you have not collected them yet, come back when you do.

This will finish the task, "Good Seeds," and you will be able to claim your rewards, to include a Crest Lower Right Field Frame (Magic, Lore, No Trade, Weight 0.0).

.

8) Now look around for Dan Hearthpride (Level 40).

He is to the east from Yvette.

Hail him and follow along, or just try saying, "Bring," to get the task called, "Arms of the Dead."

.

9) Now give him ten (10) Rusted Blade Fragments.

If you have not collected them yet, come back when you do.

This will finish the task, "Arms of the Dead," and you will be able to claim your rewards, to include a Crest Lower Right Field Plate (Magic, Lore, No Trade, Weight 0.0).

.

10) OCEANGREEN HILLS: Now head back to Sergeant Bronal Cadran.

Hail him to finish the task, "No Cure for Death," and claim your rewards, to include a Crest Upper Right Field Frame (Magic, Lore, No Trade, Weight 0.0).

.

11) Now head over to the fortress, near the zone in (near The Void portal).

Just inside the main castle, you should see Cirtan, Bayle's Herald (Level 85).

NOTE: Have a bag slot open!

NOTE: You will need "Kindly" or better faction. If you aren't kindly yet, work on the next series of tasks and try again later.

Buy from him a Heraldic Crest Repair Kit (6-Slot Large, 0% Weight Reduction, Weight 0.8)!

.

12) Combine the Crest Lower Right Field Plate, Crest Lower Right Field Frame, Crest Upper Right Field Plate and the Crest Upper Right Field Frame inside the Heraldic Crest Repair Kit to make a Crest Right Field (Magic, Lore, No Trade, Weight 0.0).

HERALDIC KEEP

Does This Look Infected?          Follow Your Nose          Plague from Above          

Salving Grace          Test the Waters          Thinning the Ranks

13) While you are in the main fort, look for Tabron Caulria (Level 75) (he should be up the ramp from Cirtan).

Hail and follow along, or just try saying, "Plague," to get the task called, "Does This Look Infected?"

.

14) Now you need to loot some items, here in the same zone.

You will need to loot four (4) Infected Animal Organ (No Trade, Weight 0.0) which drops from any "animal" type MOB with "infected" in their name, in Oceangreen Village and Oceangreen Hills.

You will also need to loot one (1) Undamaged Animal Organ (No Trade, Weight 0.0); found on any "diseased" corpse you can find lying about in Oceangreen Hills. These "corpses" are not "killed," they are opened like a chest... so use /open to loot them.

RUMOR: This task clearly says you need to "loot" the above items. However, there are reports that they can be pre-looted. I cannot verify this. If you wish to try this, simply make sure they are in your inventory (not in your bank) when you get the task.

.

15) Head back to Tabron and turn in the five (5) items from the above step (Step 14), to complete the task, "Does This Look Infected?"

Then claim you rewards, to include the Crest Keep Wall Frame (Lore, No Trade, Magic, Weight 0.0).

NOTE: Have a bag slot open!

This will also unlock the next task, so hail and follow along with Tabron, or just try saying, "Plague," to get the task called, "Salving Grace."
.

16) Tabron should have given you Tabron's Remedy Bag (No Trade, Magic, Lore, 6-Slot Giant, Weight 0.8, 0% Weight Reduction).

If you have not yet collected a Reanimated Bone Dust, a Fetid Flesh, a Blackened Deathcap and a Snake Venom Gland (see Step 1), you will need to do so now.

Once you have these four items, combine them in Tabron's Remedy Bag to make Tabron's Remedy (Weight 0.1, 10 Charges of "Curative Elixir").

.

17) Now you need to use Tabron's Remedy on an "infected" animal.

Find any "infected" animal in the zone and click the potion while you have it targeted (you will have to be in close melee range).

Once the cast finishes, the animal will disappear and you should get a task update.

.

18) Head back to Tabron and hail to finish this task ("Salving Grace").

This will unlock the next task and allow you to claim your rewards, to include the Crest Keep Frame (Lore, No Trade, Magic, Weight 0.0).

Keep speaking with Tabron, or just try saying "Plague," to get the next task called, "Test the Waters." 

.

19) Outside the main fort, but inside the fort walls, you should find Jeneca Orlofen (Level 75).

Hail her and follow along, or just try saying, "Vengeance," to get the task called, "Follow Your Nose."

.

20) OCEANGREEN VILLAGE: You are looking for Morris Olberson (Level 35).

NOTE: Have a bag slot open!

He can be found on or near the docks (he wanders).

Hail him and say, "Tabron sent me," and he will give you a container called Tabron's Vial Pouch (No Trade, Weight 0.8, 4-Slot Giant, 0% Weight Reduction).

Inside should be an Empty Vial Labeled "Glade Water" (Weight 0.8, 1 charge of "Sample Water"), an Empty Vial Labeled "Lake Water" (Weight 0.8, 1 charge of "Sample Water"), an Empty Vial Labeled "Pond Water" (Weight 0.8, 1 charge of "Sample Water") and an Empty Vial Labeled "Sea Water" (Weight 0.8, 1 charge of "Sample Water").

Keep the four (4) vials, but you can destroy the Tabron's Vial Pouch if you want to.

.

21) Next, go out to the water at the docks. Stand near the edge and/or actually go in the water and click the Empty Vial Labeled "Sea Water" to get a Vial of Sea Water (Weight 0.8).

.

22) On the opposite side of the village area is a small pond. Stand near the edge and/or actually go in the pond and click the Empty Vial Labeled "Pond Water" to get a Vial of Pond Water (Weight 0.8) (I had to go under water to get this one to work).

.

23) OCEANGREEN HILLS: On the east side of the zone, there is a lake.

Stand near the edge and/or actually go in the lake and click the Empty Vial Labeled " Lake Water" to get a Vial of Lake Water (Weight 0.8).

.

24) On the north side of the zone, not too far from the lake, is a tunnel that leads to the "glade" area, where there is a small pond and a waterfall.

MOB's in here are undead, so beware.

Stand near the edge and/or actually go in the water and click the Empty Vial Labeled "Glade Water" to get a Vial of Glade Water (Weight 0.8).

You can do this with good timing (re: MOB pathing).

.

25) Now look for Migglethorpe the Putremancer (Level 76).

He is a regular spawn and can seemingly appear and wander about all most anywhere in the zone.

You need to kill him (Follow Your Nose).

.

26) Then head back to Jeneca.

Hail her to finish the task, "Follow Your Nose."

You will be able to claim your rewards, to include the Crest Keep Wall Plate (Lore, No Trade, Magic, Weight 0.0).

.

27) Then head back to Tabron.

Give him the four (4) samples (see Steps 21 to 24), to finish the task called, "Testing the Waters."

This will unlock the next task (Step 28) and allow you to claim your rewards, to include the  Crest Keep Tower Frame (Lore, No Trade, Magic, Weight 0.0).

.

28) Now look for Archon Darianna Althus (Level 80), who is near Tabron, on the floor below.

Hail and follow along, or just try saying, "Willing to Serve," to get the task called, "Plague from Above."

NOTE: If she will not give you this task, it probably means you have not finished the tasks given by Tabron Caulria and Sergeant Bronal Cadran.

.

29) Just outside the fortress, you can see a few A Zombie Catapult (Level 49), surrounded by "zombie" MOB's.

Load up on arrows and you can kill them from afar with no aggro (of if you have caster help, they can be dotted and nuked).

You need to destroy three (3) of them (they respawn in short order) (Plague from Above).

UPDATE: A 2009 patch nerfed this! The "zombie" MOB's around the catapults are now on social aggro with A Zombie Catapult. So, you now need to clear the zombies as well.

.

30) Then head back inside the fortress to Archon Darianna Althus.

Hail to complete the task, "Plague from Above."

This will unlock the next task and allow you to claim your rewards, to include the  Crest Keep Tower Plate (Lore, No Trade, Magic, Weight 0.0).

Follow along with Darianna, or just try saying, "Work," to get the next task, called, "Thinning the Ranks."

.

31) Inside the courtyard and just outside the fort, you will see a number of  MOB's lying about, with the word "Corpse" in their name (Level 73 to 75).

You need to destroy six (6) of them.

You will be hit with a DoT called, "Putrescent Aura" when you are close to them, but ignore it... simply attack them and destroy them. They do not fight back.

.

32) Out among the A Zombie Catapult, you can see A Zombie Bombardier (Level 73 to 75).

You need to pull and kill five (5) of them.

.

33) Now head back in and hail Darianna to finish the task, "Thinning the Ranks."

This will allow you to claim your rewards, to include the Crest Keep Plate (Lore, No Trade, Magic, Weight 0.0).

.

34) Head back to Cirtan, Bayle's Herald.

NOTE: Have a bag slot open!

Buy another Heraldic Crest Repair Kit (kindly faction required).

.

35) Now combine the Crest Keep Plate, Crest Keep Frame, Crest Keep Wall Plate, Crest Keep Wall Frame, Crest Keep Tower Frame and the Crest Keep Tower Plate inside the Heraldic Crest Repair Kit to make a Heraldic Keep (Magic, Lore, No Trade, Weight 0.0).

CREST LEFT FIELD

Cure the Crud          Names for the Faceless          Poach the Poachers          

Reduce the Risk          Stop the Spreading          The Deathless

36) Just outside the fortress doors, in the courtyard, you should find Garvin Windrunner (Level 75).

Hail him and follow along, or just try saying, "Test" to get the task called, "Reduce the Risk."

.

37) Now head over to the cave (same one as from Step 24).

NOTE: Have a bag slot open!

Beware the undead!

Head into the waterfall to find the cave behind it. Then go straight in, dive in to the water and swim around to the left, to find Kerrin the Unkempt (Level 78), on a ledge.

Hail her and follow along, or just try saying, "Do this" and "Aid" to get the two (2) tasks called "Poach the Poachers" and "Cure the Crud."

.

38) Kerrin should have given you a Stone Vial (No Trade, 4-Slot Large, Weight 1.0, 0% Weight Reduction).

Inside it, combine four (4) Maggot (see Step 1), to make a Mild Maggot Acid (No Trade, Temporary, Weight 0.3).

WARNING: Take note that this item is temporary! Do not do this step until you are also ready to do the next step!

.

39) You should have gotten the Stone Vial back.

Inside it, combine the Mild Maggot Acid, an Oceangreen Wheatgrass and a Pinecone (see Step 1) to make a Vial of Curative Elixir (Magic, Lore, Weight 0.1; 10 Charges of "Curative Elixir.").

The Stone Vial will not be returned with this combine.

.

39) Now you need to find and kill six (6) A Poacher (Level 73 to 75).

These human model MOB's are not too common, so a tracker would be of tremendous help.

.

40) You also need to find and kill fifteen (15) MOB's with the word "infected" in their name.

NOTE: The "Reduce the Risk" task step says "diseased" when it is actually the "infected" MOB's you need.

42) Now give Garvin the ten (10) Irregular's Signet Ring (No Trade, Weight 0.1) (see Step 1).

If you don't have these items yet, give him the ones you have (if any) and come back later when you do have them all.

This will complete the task, "Names for the Faceless," and allow you to claim your rewards, to include the Crest Lower Left Field Frame (Lore, No Trade, Magic, Weight 0.0).

.

43) Now head back into the "glade" tunnel where the undead tree and root MOB's are.

You need to use the Vial of Curative Elixir on six (6) of them.

This is accomplished by pulling them, killing them down to below 50%, standing at very close melee range and then using (clicking) the Vial of Curative Elixir.

NOTE: You will still have to kill the MOB, after using the Vial of Curative Elixir.

.

44) Now head back to Kerrin.

Hail her to finish "Poach the Poachers" and "Cure the Crud."

This will allow you to claim your rewards, to include the Crest Upper Left Field Frame (Lore, No Trade, Magic, Weight 0.0) (Poach the Poachers).

NOTE: "Cure the Crud" is required to unlock the next task and does not give a task item reward.

This will unlock Kerrin's next task, so hail her and follow along or just try saying, "Shears," to get the next task, "Stop the Spreading."

.

45) Now you need to go back out to the waterfall ("glade" area) and kill the following:

.

46) Now head back to Kerrin.

Hail her to finish "Stop the Spreading" and claim your task rewards, to include the Crest Lower Field Frame (Lore, No Trade, Magic, Weight 0.0).

Inside the main gates you should find Seradi Stormcaller (Level 80).

Hail him and follow along, or just try saying, "Do that," to get the task called "The Deathless."

Here you will find Guard Ellery (Level 73).

Everyone in the group can do this at the same time.

.

61) Now you simply need to escort Guard Ellery to the zone out to Oceangreen Hills.

Simply kill everything along the way, while telling Guard Ellery to "Stop" or "Go" when you want him to start walking or stop walking.

If you don't tell him to stop, he will keep walking while you are trying to kill MOB's and get himself killed.

.

62) OCEANGREEN HILLS: After you zone out from Old Blackburrow, look around for A Blackburrow Lurker (Level 75). They can be found wondering near this area.

You need to kill A Blackburrow Lurker until you loot a Satchel of Darkpaw Supplies (Magic, Lore, No Trade, Temporary, Weight 1.5) (What Evil Lurks in the Hearts of Gnolls?).

WARNING: If you like figuring out ciphers, do not go any further (because I will provide the answer, below)! This is a real cipher and it can be decoded! .

NOTE: The task steps call for turning in four (4) "pages" and three (3) "scraps," even though all of the required items are called "scraps."

.

71) Spoiler alert! Last warning! The cipher answer is about to be revealed!

Next, you need to set up a hot key, based on the answer to the cipher.

The key should be set up to say a phrase (/say). The phrase needs to be all on one (1) line.

Look at your Reconstructed Cultist Manual.

It will say one of these three things:

The translations, in the same order are:

·         May an unholy blight wash across these lands The boon of disease shall open the path for the return of the Lord of Pestilence

·         We foul our bodies with the blight we worship the Disease Lord with our flesh All hail Bertoxxulous the Unclean One

·         Bertoxxulous blesses us with corruption We call upon the Disease Lord to send a herald of divine pestilence

You need to type the translation (that applies to your Reconstructed Cultist Manual) into the hot key.

NOTE: Type in the translation exactly as noted above, with no punctuation! However, capitalization does matter!

.

72) TEMPLE OF BERTOXXULOUS: Head back in.

Make your way north and then east and then back north through the "fountain" room and then through the secret wall to end up behind the altar area.

You can get here with invis if you are careful. Just watch for see invis (undead) as you may have to clear a few of them.

Once here, just to the south is a room full of MOB's. In the center of this room is a circular pattern on the floor.

You need to pull and clear the room, so you can go down to stand in the center of this circular pattern and use your hot key to speak (/say) the phrase from Step 71.

Upon speaking the phrase, Vaxztn the Putrifier (Level 80), will spawn.

Pull him back to your group and kill him.
