Plane of Hate (b)

Therefore, a victorious army first wins, and then seeks battle;
A defeated army first battles and then seeks victory.

Sun Tzu, "The Art of War"

The following instructions are provided in order to assist people in completing the Marsinger quests that are given by NPCs in Greater Faydark, and involve collecting drops from the revised Plane of Hate. I hope the information provided helps takes some of the frustration out of these difficult but rewarding quests, and ensures a pleasant, rewarding, and successful experience for all involved.

B. The Marsinger Quests

The Marsinger Quests are given by a pair of NPCs at the spires in GFay. The quests must be completed in order, but the required drops can certainly be collected out of order.

Beyond the first quest, where some pieces are droppable, all remaining parts of the quests are No Drop items. Multiquesting is possible with these components, but only if both parties are of the same category. (e.g. a hybrid can MQ with a hybrid, but not with a melee, int-caster, or priest).

The following tables outline the needed drops to complete each type of quest, and which creatures drop the required items:

C. Pulling and Camping Strategies

The following close-up maps illustrate campsites and pulling patterns:

Map of Tier 1

Map of Tiers 2 and 3

Map of Tier 4

The best areas to hunt for drops are as follows:

Note: because of the difference in the effects on the 3rd and 4th gems, many people elect to stop at the 3rd. This is a matter of taste and current requirement, but I always recommend that while in Tier 3 or 4, should the books drop for your 4th gem, collect them and hold them in your bank. They'll only take up 3 spaces, and if the day does come that the 3rd gem has outgrown its usefulness, you will have the option then of upgrading it with a simple turn-in.

Good luck.
