View Full Version : Grimling Forest - Agent Tiesh looking for Books
05-03-03, 11:30 AM
Agent Tiesh, at 1200, -1000, asks you to find Ledgers and Testiments after you bring him Legends of Lies which is found on any named in Acrylia, cept the borrower.
These Ledgers and Testiments are found in Ssra. Megumi and I have only found 2.
Ledger of Pain - found on The Shissar Magistrate - loc 140, 400
Testiment of Night - found on the Shissar Assissin - loc 160, 450
info on the other 2 books would be most useful.
The shissar Magistrate is a new mob in Ssra, and heard reports of a new named guard in the assissin area. We have killed the named by the TMs and found nothing. Also disiple Yelwinz has nothing. Edited by: Pinene at: 5/5/03 2:43:31 pm

That's the birth/creation of Takishi or whoever, in the Acrylia Caverns. I think.
05-04-03, 07:04 PM
ya i know that... the Agent guy is looking for the 4 books...
05-05-03, 12:22 PM
I'm starting to wonder if they are even in game(
We have killed everything in ssra and only these 2 have appeared.
05-05-03, 07:55 PM
can u combine those book in summary ? I wonder if it's similar case as agnarr key..give u a 8-10 slot container ( cant remember) and only require 4 gems ~!!~
05-06-03, 08:50 AM
Anyone killed the enchanter named in Ssra that drops the Vah'Shir Illusion spell. He could be a likely candidate to drop a book.
05-06-03, 09:49 AM
We killed that one, the prime educator, arch tormentor and a few others.. none dropped it. The stuff we dont bother with anymore (emp, hp, al, etc...) I asked other guilds and they said those mobs werent dropping them either.
05-12-03, 02:38 AM
/bump, It'll be interesting to see where this goes. I can report no findings from either of the commanders nor any of the named skeletons in the mines.
05-15-03, 06:29 AM
I've /bugged it and sent in feedback. It would be nice if they could atleast look into this..
05-15-03, 08:31 AM
Yesterday we did the Glyphed Exiled Cursed event ..
after it was over a named Spriritualist "T" something
was where the event mob usually is... we were too
busy at the time to stop and inquire this named
spawn...but i have found no report of this name in
Ssra in Alakhazams....I wouldnt be surprised if they
added this mob in for the 3rd ledger for an after event
kill.if so..im not gonna want to see what you have to do
to sapwn the 4th....kill EMP? lol
05-16-03, 03:55 AM
Haven't seen anything spawn after HP or Emp in the past two days....have missed our Rhag=>AL kills, possibly something there?
05-16-03, 07:33 AM
hmm, gonna goto ssra I guess and look for the new spiritualist. Hopefully it has a new testament or ledger.
05-20-03, 07:59 AM
Shissar Mystic is another of the "named" that drops a book, I forget the name. I saw him on floor1 near the tube past Assassin camp.
05-20-03, 01:56 PM
You sure you got the right name?
I killed him last night, hes on the second floor after the locked door that Commander 1 drops a key for. Had no book and thus far both book droppers drop books everytime.
05-23-03, 09:10 AM
At the risk of sounding like a noob, are you sure they're only found in Ssra?
05-23-03, 09:31 AM
Magister and Assassin are the only books we have found so far. Few mobs we are still investigating. Killed Shissar Mystic on second floor the other night, while otw to High Priest. He didn't drop a book.
05-23-03, 09:44 AM
Ya ive killed almost every named there and nothing or talk to others that have killed them.
Only thing im unsure aboot is a report of a named Guard in the Assissin area someone saw on track. But have yet too see it.
05-27-03, 04:19 AM
Your not finding them in ssara because the books are not in ssara. There in Acrylia, this is all tied together because the snakes were expermenting with the Vah shir and accedently turned one into a god who produced the grimlings.
05-27-03, 10:45 AM
Vapor, did you read my post?
the Ledgers and Testiments (books) we have found so far, 2 of 4, ARE found in Ssra as i killed the mobs and looted them myself.
Sure there is a book called "Legend of Lies" thats drops of every named in Acrylia but this is not the book we are all lookin for.
The Ssra wasnt experimenting on the Val Shir... they experimented on A Val shir... A Hero/explorer. This was found out from the 2 "books" i posted pics of above.
This Demi-god (Takhashi) didnt create the Grimlings, he found them and gave them "thought" and they worship him for this. This was found out from when my guild (Ring of Valor) first killed (only ones) Takhashi. Edited by: Pinene at: 5/27/03 10:52:37 am
05-27-03, 11:24 AM
Aye Pinene ive read the events you guys (RoV)
did in Acrylia , but is their perchance a posibility
that the revamp of acrylia introduced this new story?
The story that the Ssissar did create Tak during these
experiments on the Val Shir Hero?Thus Tak in the end
decided to rage war over the Sshir and decided to use these
grimmlings as his generals / soldiers? a thorn in my side is Vhalek the KOS Val Shir in the pit in acrylia now.... has anyone attempted to Mez or Charm him in order to speak with him or is that possible?Perhaps the new Testaments and LEdgers are a bit broken still just like the Taskmaster pouches were for a few weeks.In my personal opinion ...just pure speculation ...could the event in Acrylia now that its fully accessable be to a new section of Acrylia that isnt mapped instead of a final event in the older section?I know if this were true mobs would be on tracking right...but what if the events arent active until someone warps into the new sections....could this possibly be a Flag progression like PoP?Im just thinking of all posibilities since new revamp could mean anything.

05-27-03, 04:11 PM
It's Vah Shir, not Val Shir. And the one they experimented on was Khati Sha, former leader of the Shar Vahl beastlords. Mix his name around and you get... Takhashi! And if you look at his model closely, it is a cat skeleton of sorts. Very screwed up, but still, a definite cat.
05-29-03, 05:55 AM
This quest has to be broken. It would be nice if a developer could confirm.
05-29-03, 07:19 AM
The Ssra dont know where Takhashi is... as stated in he books. So there is no war between the Ssra and the Grimlings. Probably Takhashi has no idea of his origins. Other than wanting to war against the "Vah Shir" .
On another note, killed a named i hadnt seen before, Guard S____, cant remeber the spelling. He was in the basement below the prime educator. Didnt drop a book.
05-29-03, 11:09 PM
My guess is that Takhashi was "programmed" by the Shissar to go get rid of the Vah Shir so they'd have one less possible enemy when taking over Luclin. Takhashi was never completed, so he did escape, but now is blindly following his "programming". The Shissar themselves are busy getting ready to move against Shadow Haven (They mined through the Deep and have agents and taskmasters digging tunnels all around SH)
05-31-03, 01:56 AM
it's not broken works just fine. you're going to need some friends to get the last book tho
06-02-03, 01:46 PM
Actually i doubt the shissar was planning anything against the Cats. The reasons for the testing was raw curiousity on the cats ablities/powers and to make a god which i asume the Emporer was hoping to use the info from these experiments to become a god himself.
06-03-03, 05:38 AM
it's not broken works just fine. you're going to need some friends to get the last book tho ------
Wanna share the outcome of this with us?
I cant see this quest being worth the 4+ weeks we've already put into working on it. We've cleared ssra alot looking for the last two.
06-03-03, 08:56 AM
last book? or Books? we have found 2 of 4... u know where the 3rd and 4th are? please help
06-03-03, 12:58 PM
I haven't complete this, actually I'm not even working on it anymore as my time has been consumed with other things.
But I thought after the first two were found and then nothing that perhaps it was only a 3 book quest. I don't recall the Agent giving a number, and 3 slot containers don't exist. There is no reason I can recall that it has to be four books.
I also believe that the final book is a result of the IA script. I tried the script once but never got a chance to go back ( well, did once, but the cats were just named "." or something like that and didn't respond ). Doesn't the Agent say something about finding the final answer on the remains of Khatia Shah? That's what always led me to IA for the final piece. But no one is publicly admitting to finishing the script that I have seen.
All conjecture, but seems reasonable to me.
06-04-03, 07:49 AM
He tells you that he can not say much, except to hunt the Snake People in search of the lost ledgers/testaments.
06-04-03, 10:57 AM
Im in the same situation you are for the ledgers and testaments except i discarded my 4 slot combine conatainer as per not enough inventory room or bank room ...question is ...have you tried to combine just the 2x Books that have dropped? if so ....ive found that their is also 1 Guard ORDER from IA that wont combine with the other ones per the other quest ...wonder if this is needed ? im all outa options bro .
06-04-03, 11:04 AM
ya we (meg and i are working on this) tried combining just the 2 books and it doesnt combine.
As for the notes. The guy request different notes based on your level. theres a lower lvl quest and a higher lvl one. The High lvl one only uses 2 notes from IA and the lower lvl quest requires 3 notes which are found outside and of them are found inside too.
06-06-03, 02:47 PM
eeek... ome on man wheres the last book?
06-07-03, 07:43 AM
the ledger of lies refeers to the grmlings have ledgers and testiments..... are you sure that the last (2?) books aren't in AC?

06-09-03, 07:28 AM
no im not sure they arent in Inner Acrylia. Im just more inclined to think they are in Ssra, since thats where the experments took place and these are the Shissars records of the events.
And the book in Acrylia that drops from the named spawns is called the Legend of Lies. Its used to start the quest (sort of, you dont actually need that book to get the bag from the cat, just need to say a certain line which i cant remember)
06-10-03, 02:57 AM
what about if the book drop off shissars but NOT in ssra ? The grey has some shissar named , and i think there is a couple of shissars named in other luclin zones ( like tasmaster in eco ) .
Did u tried to combine the book of lies with the other 2 books ? the vahsir give it back to you .
06-12-03, 10:06 AM
I havent looked there, but its worth a shot.
Ill do it tonight.
07-18-03, 07:42 PM
dol/eie took down khati sha the twisted and he dropped a book
Mnemonic of khati sha
07-18-03, 11:33 PM
We killed khati sha the twisted, the boss man from the IA script, dropped the mnemonic as mentioned above. We're trying to do the quest at the moment and will post when we finish.
One question, when I went to check on the Agent at that loc, he was not there. Definately looked like something would spawn there, but just a buncha grimlings guarding the area. How often is his spawn time?
07-19-03, 11:44 AM
You need to complete the all the grimling war starting from the kitty base in grimling forest, they are pretty easy ( single 65 group doable ) .
07-19-03, 01:19 PM
My guild killed Khati Sha last night and as posted before we had a book drop. After looting the book I spent right around 19 hrs on the rest of the quest.
Item rewarded was :

Turned in the 'Legends of Lies'

He then gives you a four slot container as well as giving back the 'Legends of Lies'.

In the container combine the 'Legends of Lies', 'Ledger of Pain', 'Testiment of Night', and the 'Mnemonic of Khati Sha'.

Turn the 'Sealed Summary Scroll' into him to review the reward.

> [Sat Jul 19 14:49:03 2003] Your faction standing with VahShir Crusaders got better.
The end reward is the 'Fused Mnemonic of Khati Sha' listed above.
07-20-03, 07:12 PM
does your guild have a website?
07-20-03, 07:27 PM
You Rock! Grats, and awsome job. I'm posting your information on my guild's quest section in hopes we get a couple of these for the guild. Also crediting you of course for completing the quest
07-20-03, 09:08 PM
www.dolamroth.org <--- guild Beckah is in
pub75.ezboard.com/bechoesRN <--- guild allied with DA
Can you give a general idea on how many people it took to kill Khati Sha? Was it about 3 groups? Or more like 8 groups?
07-21-03, 03:20 PM
Dol/EIE is an elemental guild and they threw 50-60 people at the encounter to pull out the big W. Not gonna give any spoiler for the encounter cause it's fun. COngratz on the alliance on serverwide kill
Tad jealous my guild didn't get the win but oh well that's to be expected )
07-21-03, 07:57 PM
I dont suppose anyone could post the text from the Mnemonic of Khati Sha.
07-21-03, 09:15 PM
Well as stated by someone I am apart of da/eie. We had around 65 people there mainly in elemental gear. I was the WS so I was dead and missed most of the fight but pretty much everyone was saying we could have done with less.
I think the numbers needed would depend on the gear and classes there.
I do have some screenshots from the book but will not be able to post them until my husband rebuilds his webserver. I hope that will be this weekend.
07-25-03, 05:04 PM
I wanted to add the effect is Self Only. Being a ranger the effect is uesless to me either way but I thought others would want to know this.
07-29-03, 05:15 PM
does Khati Shah need to be spawned / Triggered? Or does he spawn on a timer like most dungeon bosses?
10-26-03, 06:21 AM
Is it possible that someone has the full detail, or perhaps a walkthrough of this quest? that can post on the board here, or somewhere on his/her homepage? I'm interested and eager to read them through, and get started on the quest
Personally, I havn't been in SSRA all that often, and aren't familiar with where Assassin camp is, nor any other camp.
10-26-03, 11:53 PM
The MAGISTARTE can be found going straight from the zone through the door past the 4 snakes in their alcoves. At the T-intersection turn right und follow the hall which ends at a door to your left. Behind it is a 3-spawn of snakes, the magistrate will always appear at the middle spawn; it does have PHs. Seen him there 4x, never at another spot.
The ASSASSIN can be found when turning left at the T-intersection, going straight until you you reach two doors, the 1st to your right und 2nd one a bit down the hall to your left. Take the left door, you'll see another 3-spawn of snakes, behind them is a stone which covers an entrance, you have to pick that door/stone. Follow the tunnel (there's a trap right there a few feet down the tunnel) until you reach a pretty big room, filled with snakes.
If you look into the room from the door you just walked through, you'll see a small ramp going down to the lower floor und another ramp at the far side of the room. The assassin will spawn to the left of that ramp at the far side of the room (south I believe). Never seen him spawn anywhere else.
Hope that was of some help to you. Edited by: Pieksy Kenderkin at: 10/26/03 11:57 pm

Can anyone confirm that you can do multiple hand ins to the guy in Grim forest once3 you have him up?
I also would appreciate any more information as to how to get him to spawn and how to spawn the guy in AC pls
