Qeynos Badge of Honor
the fourth Qeynos badge quest. You must do the other three first.
You say, 'Hail, Vegalys Keldrane'
Vegalys Keldrane says 'Greetings to you, citizen. By order of the Council of
Qeynos I have been given the duty of apprehending the individuals [responsible]
for unleashing this terrible plague upon the people and the lands of Antonius
Bayle. The more I look into this matter, the more I come to find that this will
be no easy task.
You say, 'i wish to advance further'
Vegalys Keldrane says 'Interested in helping us further? We continue to gather
valuable information. We still require [interrogators] that are able to pry the
information we require out those less then willing to talk. Also, Velarte Selire
at the Temple of Life is looking for help with his [research] so you may wish to
talk with him. Lastly, we now have information we believe may lead us to the
[individual that unleashed this plague] in the first place.
You say, 'what individual that unleashed this plague'
Vegalys Keldrane says 'The plague was unleashed by a woman named Azibelle
Spavin. She was the bodyguard and some say concubine of Mordavin Telase. He was
put to death for his long list of crimes against Qeynos which included murder,
treason and attempted genocide. The plague is apparently her revenge. I sent one
of my investigators and one of the best guardsmen we have to try and find her
and bring her to justice. They are [still missing].
You say, 'still missing'
Vegalys Keldrane says 'Kane recommended Guard Helminth personally as one of his
best. They must have run into serious trouble. These were two of Qeynos' finest.
I am only willing to send those with both strength and intelligence down there
to complete this mission and find our people's whereabouts. Give me your
Researcher's Badge should you wish to accept this mission.
Hand in your Research's Badge at this point.
Vegalys Keldrane says 'Here is my personal seal. Go to the sewers and locate my
investigator and show him this seal if he yet lives. Find out what happened to
he and guard Helminth. Then if at all possible, complete this operation by
finding Azibelle Spavin and execute her. Bring me her head and return me my seal
and you shall be rewarded.
Zone into Qeynos Aquaducts.
The investigator was at 951, 30 laying upon the ground.
You say, 'Hail, an investigator'
an investigator coughs and struggles to move. 'There were. . . too many . . .
Give the investigator the seal from Vegalys.
an investigator says 'Vegalys sent you. I'm done for. Guard Helminth found a
false wall. We stepped through it. We were ambushed. I didn't see where Helminth
went. He disappeared. I knew we were overwhelmed. I ran and feigned death but I
knew [it was too late].
You say, 'it was too late'
investigator gasps clutching a wound and says, 'Their magic was too powerful.
Necromancers. Undead. Cursed knights of an unholy god. They left when they
thought I was dead. But even now their curses sap the last of my life. I made it
as far as I could. If Helminth lives, tell him [I am dead]. Please complete the
mission. Bring this Azibelle to justice. Avenge me.'
Guard Helminth then spawns at 376, -49. This is just before the 4 spectres
outside of the necromancer guild. Don't think about soloing beyond this. I went
with a 54 warrior who had his epics and it was a close fight. A 55+ warrior and
cleric will be the safest bet.
You say, 'Hail, Guard Helminth'
Guard Helminth says 'Who are you and what are you doing here? This place is not
safe. You are to leave here immediately! You do not belong here!
You say, 'vegalys sent me'
I forgot to try the message from the investigator for Guard Helminth ("I am
dead"). So I am not sure what response I would have received with that.
Guard Helminth says 'So Vegalys sent you to check on our progress then? I don't
believe you. Prove it!
Give Guard Helminth Vegalys seal. You get the seal back and he responds with:
Guard Helminth says 'Well, well! Vegalys did send you after all. Are you [ready
to complete the mission]? I am certain I know where Azibelle is hiding.
You say, 'I am ready to complete the mission'
At this point, Guard Helminth respawns as Corrupt Guard Helminth. Also directly
behind him a necromancer spawned. Both agro. A few seconds later a rotting
sentry spawned next to me. All 3 hit in the 70 - 80's range. Rotting sentry did
harm touch me for 351 points of damage. Corrupt Guard Helminth was blue at 56
but the other two were green and hit the hardest.
Once Corrupt Guard Helminth was killed, Azibelle Spavin was found on track.
She's at 439, -264 which is just past the 4 spectres that are
outside the necromancer guild. She did not respond to hails and has a pet. She is a shadowknight and was blue to 56.
She hits hard, up to 117, and her pet is no joke either. Pull with a snare to
stay away from the specs. I let the warrior deal
with her and fought the pet, and then two Septic Rats jumped me. Needless to say,
it was close.
Loot the "Head of Azibelle Spavin."
Return to Vegalys Keldrane and turn in the seal and head.
Vegalys Keldrane says 'Good work Galiana ! So Guard Helminth was corrupt? So
crafty are these black hearted souls that they can fool even the righteous Kane
Bayle himself! I'm sure he will be saddened to hear of this. I too am saddenned
by the loss of one of my best investigators. At least we've served justice this
day by sending Azibelle Spavin to her dark master. May she rot with her god.
Take this Badge of Honor and wear it with pride and distinction.
