Make absolutely sure you want a beastlord before you level one up and start this suckfest of an epic weapon timeline! This questline is BRUTAL! I have completed nine epic weapon timelines overall for six different classes. NONE of them were even as remotely difficult or painful to complete as this one. This questline takes SUCKFEST to a whole new level. Do not expect to complet this one quickly. It will probably take you two to three weeks of HARD WORK to just get the fabled version done (including prerequisites). To get the mythical upgrades on your weapons, you have to beat a hard mode raid mob that is still extremely difficult/nearly impossible for most guilds on my Guk server, mine included. You get your mythical class spell from the fabled version though. So your best bet is to endure the suck and complete that questline, then get either spirit infused Drinal faction weapons, or get COE/SG raid weapons. Just clear the mythical BL claw weapons from your mind so as to not torture yourself.
Use a flying mount to reach ( -79, 297, 49 ) /waypoint -79, 297, 49 (near the rock with terrorfangs) in The Stonebrunt Highlands where there is a clickable ladder that takes you into A Dark Cave, where Warble is. Speak to him. (the quest will not be offered yet)
Note: This step requires you to be 90+
Kill A void ruiner (15 min respawn timer) at ( -977, 732, -389 ) /waypoint -977.21, 732.44, -388.53 near The Eye of El'Arad until you get Warble's hand-kerchief and return to him. A void ruiner looks like A void destroyer. It is stationary and doesn't roam. Note, only 1 beastlord can get the hand-kerchief per kill.
When you return to A Dark Cave and speak to Warble again, giving him the hand-kerchief, the quest will be offered.
I am in search of a clue to what my path is:
clicking on a "Mark of Instinct" (jade arm statue kinda thing) at ( 130, 247, 306 ) /waypoint 130.26, 247.34, 306.00 in the Gruengach Caves in The Stonebrunt Highlands.
another Mark of Instinct statue at ( 352, 227, 84 ) /waypoint 351.76, 226.92, 83.52 in the Gruengach Caves in The Stonebrunt Highlands.
"a hidden barrel" top of the caves ( 355, 330, 152 ) /waypoint 355.31, 330.48, 152.32 .
"Warble said something about common decent" - Mark of Instinct at ( 1168, 41, 2234 ) /waypoint 1168, 41, 2234 in The Sundered Frontier (Travel to Kerra Isle and it's in the grotto with Queen Martah)
"Look around the village more" - Mark of Instinct at ( 1409, 36, 2280 ) /waypoint 1409, 36, 2280 on Kerra Isle.
"Look for something to the north" - Basket under a hut on the north end of Kerra Village ( 1340, 44, 2044 ) /waypoint 1340, 44, 2044 .
"Ruins old and new" - the ruins above Paineel at ( 1634, -110, 2988 ) /waypoint 1634, -110, 2988 .
"Clue to the West" - on the other side of Paineel ( 2182, -92, 3242 ) /waypoint 2182, -92, 3242 .
"Books and Vials" - in Paineel at ( 2009, -298, 3330 ) /waypoint 2009, -298, 3330 is a vase on the wall.
Go back to Warble in Stonebrunt Highlands in his cave.
The next updates are in Vasty Deep: The Conservatory; it's reported that the first two can be obtained in a cleared instance (must be done in order).
The Fourth Fetish: Mark of Instinct under the water where the Eeloran named spawns at ( 139, 11, -85 ) /waypoint 138.73, 10.57, -84.96.
Among plants and leaves - in the plant area in Conservatory with shrubbery monsters up a root on the north side at ( 156, 97, 40 ) /waypoint 156, 97, 40 .
Bring a Group for this step. A shell - at ( 47, 97, 51 ) /waypoint 47, 97, 51 , in the water between the wall and pillar.
Clicking on the shell mentioned above (in the room with the last named in Conservatory) spawns L95 ^^^ Dagoranon, Deep Protector - hits like a mack truck. You have 6s to cure the frontal attack. Bring an enchanter, this named has a reactive power drain when hit.--Ran this 6/24/12 and it was not a group update. The shell can only be clicked by one beastlord per instance. If you have multiple beastlords in a group you will need to run the zone for each beastlord. (Ran this on 1/13/12 and it WAS a group update IF all Beastlords present had previously clicked the shell and failed an attempt.)
Return to Warble in the Stonebrunt Highlands. He will send you to the Hole for three updates.
First is in the rat area of wing 1 [The Hole:(Entrace)eq2maps] at ( 34, 55, -64 ) /waypoint 34, 55, -64, you can jump down to it.
Second is Underfoot area of wing 3 [The Hole:(North Upper)eq2maps] underwater at ( 101, 39, -925 ) /waypoint 101, 39, -925
Third is on the Defenders side (wing 2) [The Hole:(West)eq2maps] in the lush garden named at ( 732, 125, -224 ) /waypoint 732, 125, -224
This will spawn Kortaag that is a pita just like the one in Conservatory. Stun or precure, the AE is a killer. [click on foreign bulb to spawn the named] You'll NEED two tanks for when the named splits during the fight and makes an exact clone of himself (including having the same name!). You MUST separate the split mobs far apart [at least 50m] and then kill each clone to get update. If you don't split the clones, they combine (after a certain amount of time) into a super Kortaag that will wipe the group. Position a solo healer between the two tanks.
Return to Warble.
After you speak to Warble he teleports you to a special instance which resembles Kerra Isle, cross the bridge and the NPC will advise you to make it to the center of the village as fast as possible. [Take the normal way as tunnels are blocked!]
Quest completes and you will be ported back to Warble to continue the next quest
