Paladin 1.0 Epic – Part 1
SoulFire is the first sword required for the Paladin 1.0 Epic. It is quested.
You’ll first want to get faction with Priests of Life. This will be needed for the final turn in later. High Kindly was sufficient for me, but you may be able to do it with less (exact amount unverified).
There are 4 Options. The first two are good. The last two are slow.
Option A – GOOD OPTION #1)
You can get faction by questing with Lashun Novashine in North Qeynos. He roams around the zone, so a tracker might help speed things up. However, the zone is not very big so you’ll run into him eventually. You can either give him 2 Gold or 2 Bone Chips to receive 1 faction. The benefit of using Bone Chips is that you can turn-in an unlimited amount at a time (stacked). With Gold you can only turn in 2 at a time. You can con him to check your faction status with Priests of Life.
Note: You can buy unlimited Bone Chips from A Vendor of Reagents the Guild Lobby if Dragons of Norrath is unlocked.
Option B – GOOD OPTION #2)
You must be at least AMIABLE with Priests of Life to use this option
– Go to North Qeynos. Kill a Koalindl (with an alt or a character OTHER than your Paladin. You will take a big faction hit if you use your Paladin) who spawn in the water underneath the Temple of Life. Loot Koalindl Fish with your Paladin. Common Drop. The fish are level 1.
Koalindl Fish is NO TRADE, so you’ll still need to loot it on the character you are doing the quest with.
Give Koalindl Fish to Enic Ruklin nearby in the Temple of Life to receive +100 Priest of Life faction. You must be at least AMIABLE to do this turn-in.
Option C and D are almost not worth mentioning, but are mostly as an FYI:
Option C – SLOW + Expensive)
You can also give Silver Bar to Fixxin Followig in North Karana for 1 faction per bar. You can also only turn in 1 at a time since he gives a Lore book. He roams along the north side of the zone.
Option D – SLOW)
There are also various NPC’s you can kill to get faction, the most notable one is Lord Grimrot in South Karana and various NPC’s in Qeynos Catacombs. I won’t go over all NPCs since the best Option is Option A.
Once you have obtained High Kindly with Priests of Life faction go to Castle Mistmoore. You need to kill Xicotl and loot Glowing Sword Hilt. He spawns in the “Spa” room (-190, +95). His PH is a Mistmoore guard. You do not need to kill a Mistmoore guard. It will automatically respawn every minute or so. Eventually Xicotl will spawn in its place.
Go to North Ro and kill tarantula type mobs until you get Spider Venom Sac.
Go to Commonlands and buy Cloth Shirt from Germe Threadspinner. He is inside a hut along the north wall.
Next, find Altunic Jartin (also in Commonlands) who wanders around the zone. Sometimes he is along the road, sometimes he is in the grassy area. A tracker can speeds things up a bit. Give Altunic Jartin Cloth Shirt to receive Token of Generosity.
Note: To give the tunic to Althunic Jartin you’ll need to be at least Amiable faction with Knights of Truth. If you are Mithaniel Marr deity you may already be Amiable. If you are a different deity then you may be a bit low. To raise your faction kill Freeport Militia Guards in either Commonlands or Freeport. You can check your faction with /faction. See details below.
Some easy faction grinding options:
Guards give between 1-10 each (depending on which guard)
Level 35-40ish Guards generally give +5-10 each.
Sir Lucan D`Lere: +200 Killing this guy is also a required part of the quest (See Step 11). Level 48. He also has a longer respawn than most guards so may not be up if someone has just killed him. 4 hour respawn? Blue Circle on map below
Sir Lucan D`Lere: (undead version): +100 – Spawns after Sir Lucan D`Lere dies. Level 40.
Guard Drazden: +40 – In Sir Lucan D`Lere’s room. Approx. 4 min 50 sec respawn. Level 40.
Brother Jentry: +40 – In Sir Lucan D`Lere’s room. Approx. 4 min 50 sec respawn. Level 40.
Next you’ll need to farm 3 items: Rat Ears, Fire Beetle Eye, Snake Scales. These items will used in 21 trivial trade skill combine, so grab more than 1 if you aren’t feeling lucky. You can get these from mobs in either Commonlands or West Freeport (Rats, Fire Beetles, and Snakes).
Get a Water Flask and a Bottle from a vendor somewhere, they are sold in every town.
Use the materials you just got to make the following items: Bog Juice and Edible Goo.
Bog Juice – Brewing – Trivial 21 – Brew Barrel
1x Water Flask
1x Snake Scales
Edible Goo – Baking – Trivial 21 – Oven
1x Fire Beetle Eye
1x Rat Ears
Go to the Halls of Truth in West Freeport. Find Merko Quetalis (use find, +1000, -140). Give him Spider Venom Sac to receive Token of Bravery. Next, give him the Token of Bravery you just got along with Token of Generosity. This turn-in will spawn Guard Willia (+850, -220) in the basement/cell area.
Guard Willia is level 6. Kill him and loot Token of Truth. Go back to Merko Quetalis and give him Token of Truth to receive Testimony.
Go to East Freeport and find Gregor Nasin. Buy 4x Drom’s Champagne from him. You will need to turn them into Tykar Renlin. Tykar Renlin has 4 PH’s that all spawn at the same spot at the bar. These PH’s they will roam around Freeport for a bit, then come back and eventually despawn/respawn. Basically you will just need to wait for Tykar Renlin to spawn on his own. They can take anywhere from 1 to 6 min to respawn (roughly). Known PH’s are: Plnorrick Spinecracker, Biggle Lombokker, Tlin Bowfright, and Lozani.
Once Tykar Renlin finally does spawn, give him 1x Drom’s Champagne at a time, after the 4th one he will give you Bunker Cell #1.
Stay in East Freeport. Find a prisoner in the arena area. Give him Bog Juice, Edible Goo and Bunker Cell #1 to receive H.K. 102.
Still in East Freeport, you must now kill Sir Lucan D’Lere. Doing so will make you instant KOS to Freeport. He is level 46-48 range. Once he dies, an undead version of him will spawn. Kill it too. Loot Testimony of Truth. He is a Guildmaster so you can use Find to locate him.
Zone over to West Freeport and locate Valeron Dushire (+1120, -500) in Hall of Truth. Give him Testimony of Truth to receive Brilliant Sword of Faith. He is a Guildmaster so you can use Find to locate him.
Go to High Keep and find Assistant Kiolna (-40, -335) near the bank. Give her H.K. 102 to receive Sealed Note.
Step 14 – Final Turn-in!
You’re looking for Brother Hayle. Depending on the era your server is in he will be in different places:
You can find him in Splitpaw Lair in a jail cell (+382,+327) . On your way in there are some levers on the walls to open up the cell doors.
You can find him in South Karana (-1500, +2250).
Make sure you are at least Kindly (I was high Kindly) faction with him.
1) First give him Sealed Note by itself. He will return Note.
2) Then give him Glowing Sword Hilt, Brilliant Sword of Faith, Testimony, Note to receive SoulFire!
