I've been meaning to post this for a while. I had both of these items before level 20, but I was too lazy to make an account. These are two PoP quests that are very easy, and result in nice focus items that I have yet to replace at level 53.

I hope you find these well.

Seems like pretty neat quests Break. The 2nd one requires you to go to Droga though? Thats like 45+ isnt it? The ring seems to be easy enough to get with a little porting, unless you buy the stuff at PoK vendors. Except for the HQ cat pelt. (Be lucky to get that, i would think.) Anyways, thanks for posting, ill definatly try em.

Droga is fine if you can invis. Nothing in there sees invis. Have a good map (eqatlas) and avoid anything that breaks invis. If you do it before level ten, you can death gate back out (which is especially handy if you can't gate).

That said, I remember a spectacular wipe in Droga, doing that exact quest, which started when a forager went to drop whatever it was, and accidently opened a trade window with another player. And then I lost invis when trying to use a chipped bone rod to find the bodies (I was young <g>) and splatted gloriously. And then the higher level rescue party wiped. Twice. And then we ported out before someone had finished looting their body so we had to go back =again=.

Good times.

The Droga one you should do at level 4, when you get invis.

Just invis all the way down, turn it in, then get aggro. Instantly ported back to soul binder, item in hand.

Thanks for the post. A few years ago on the PC side, I would have my casters and priest do this at level 4 or 5, after they have gate. Nothing in Droga sees invis; hopefully it holds. This quest is best done before lvl 10, so you do not have to do a corpse run if invis fails. I have had invis fail a couple times in Droga, been lucky enough to move away from the mobs and gate out of there. The only time I have been killed in my dozen or so attempts is when a mob was too close to quest npc. I had looked around and thought this might be a problem, so I quickly did the turn in and died. Respawned on PoK with the needed quest item. This is a great item to have. And you do need a decent map of Droga; the EQ altas one is good enough.

If you can't find the Sarnak blood on a merchant anywhere, the newbie yard for Iksars in LOIO has plenty of level 1 sarnaks that drop the blood. I did the quest at level 12 and I was fine. I even lost my invis once on my droga run (scared the crap out of me), but was able to get out of agro range and recast. The mobs in there have a pretty small aggro range in general.

Thanks for the links! ...and a bump for any other newbies starting out. :)

I did the Mask quest last night -- the run through Droga was all the more exciting since I'm level 25 with plenty of exp (if not much gear) to lose. But after wandering around for ten minutes and re-invising once, I found the guy. I stood right on top of him and nothing agro'd me, and I was able to do the turn-in and gate safely.

Now for the ring!!
