Locations[edit]

I found him on south edge of wizard's folly [ Pino 16:54, 8 March 2011 (UTC) ]

He spawned inside the ice cave for me, in the large chamber. Ghosst I Make Dead PeopleTalk
I found him in the area with the large Aloe thingies, probably the location Pino meant?--Fogeltje 16:58, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
^ Same. Recommend clearing everything on the way to him as you have to escort him back to Foible's Fair. Sardaukar User Sardaukar sig.png 17:05, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
He also spawned in the ice cave for me^^ 195.132.200.66 17:14, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Southwestern corner here. 82.95.65.117 17:15, 8 March 2011 (UTC)
Easy location, he spawns directly south of the Sword Tower (or whatever its called). You can see him if you hold alt as soon as you can see the tower. --Smithy-Star User Smithyben sig icon.png 17:25, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

There is also a group of bandits on the north side of the tower, the map shown seems to be missing this group. 69.182.175.212 20:56, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

Ringleader[edit]

can somebody remove them from the list of oponents? As far as I experienced there are no Ringleader in this quest. Thanks. [[80.137.58.160 18:01, 8 March 2011 (UTC)]]

Removed, table was borrowed from a previous quest. Ghosst I Make Dead PeopleTalk

Farmable for LDoA and Survivor[edit]

So far out of all the quests this one has been the easiest and probably the best candidate to farm for Experience points for both titles, Boring yes but very easily to do. T1Cybernetic User T1Cybernetic Glob of Ectoplasm.png 21:55, 8 March 2011 (UTC)

do you just kill the few mobs outside wizards folly to farm them or kill all of them 99.8.6.222
Yep this is pretty much the best quest to grind exp. Could even death level those two starter guys but why bother. Hire a higher level person then clear the area for best cost/exp. Kill the first few guys over and over if you don't mind a massive grind or are lvl 17+. Aro User Aro Signature Logo.gif 08:54, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
I killed followed the path on the right side of the snow and killed everything until I hit the grassy area, Was easily -5 minutes per run. T1Cybernetic User T1Cybernetic Glob of Ectoplasm.png 12:00, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
Barring a crazy quest tomorrow this hamnet quest is the best to grind ldoa. I've just went lvl 16 to 19 off it. Could even grind 19 then use quests rewards to finish but I want to be able to farm GotH's with mr impy. Aro User Aro Signature Logo.gif 22:09, 10 March 2011 (UTC)
anyone know what the xp rate is for this, i got just over 11k xp in 4 hours doing bandit quest was wondering if its better to do this one?Spark-TBa 11:12, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
Without letting us know what level you are, it's impossible to say anything as the XP you gain is relative to your level (and thus the level of the foes).--Fogeltje 11:23, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
since the foes scale and xp is dependant on your lvl compared to your foes it shouldnt matter, but that 11k was going from lvl 17 and 6% to lvl 18 and 2 %Spark-TBa 11:27, 13 March 2011 (UTC)
or do you mean at what stage in each foe scaling i amSpark-TBa 11:29, 13 March 2011 (UTC)

This gets even easier after finding Hamnet as he takes some of the damage. Calling him "Tank" Hamnet now. (reset indent) Robdalf 06:08, 18 March 2011 (UTC)

(Reset indent) From farming it myself it looks like you kill ~19 mobs in 5-6 minutes, if you could get it down to 5 minutes a run it would take roughly 15 hours of grinding this quest to get from lvl 10 to 20 If you saved all the pre-searing quest experience until now. If you didn't it takes and extra 4 hours of farming to get to 20 bringing it to 19 hours. I find getting from 10-14 much faster doing northland runs though. So it is around 9 hours from 14-20 if you saved the xp from all the pre-searing quests until lvl 20Roibeirt 16:55, 11 March 2012 (UTC)

Hamnet: Shakespear[edit]

Hamnet is the name of one of Shakespears children.

you could better put that at Hamnet's page then.. --Holy--95.97.106.133 10:39, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
actually Hamnet was the interspecies cooperative to find Babe in 1995.68.32.65.110 06:01, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
Isn't a "hamnet" also something referring to a group of ham radio operators? 69.177.225.202 01:28, 31 July 2012 (UTC)

Rescue to any portal[edit]

I already added the portal to lakeside county earlier, now I read on guildwiki.de that any portal will work, even if you bring him to the portal to the catacombs. [[80.137.58.160 05:01, 9 March 2011 (UTC)]]

Confirmed, catacomb zone does work. Aro User Aro Signature Logo.gif 22:09, 10 March 2011 (UTC)

Route Best for Farming[edit]

Could someone make a map showing the route for the quickest farming? I believe that would be very helpful. Adrenalinetaco 15:40, 6 June 2011 (UTC)

There really isn't a route that's best for farming, it sort of depends on what you want to do. Most people just leave from Foible's Fair, kill the first two Bandits spawned by the quest, and rezone. However, I personally found that to be much too monotonous so I did the following: Start from Foible's Fair, kill the first two bandits, fight your way to the tower, circle around it to get the Bandits in the back, and get the ones in front of the ice cave. I do this not only because I find it less of a grind, but also because it's a good way to gather Icy Lodestones (for GotH's). Farming xp and Icy Lodestones in conjunction with each other makes both easier imo. *shrugs* Sammich 01:58, 21 March 2012 (UTC)

Stop! Hamnet Time![edit]

I will definitely farm this till lv 20 if I can.Yumiko ^,~ 19:32, 6 November 2011 (UTC)

Elementalist Aziure[edit]

I was farming the quest here and one of the Bandit Fire starters killed Elementalist Aziure. Here's a screenshot proving she died : http://tinypic.com/r/2wphz15/6 I think this should be added to the notes section on this page, as she's a quest npc, so she's rather important!!! The Etherien 13:08, 3 June 2012 (UTC)

Not too critical though as when you rezone she comes back to life.Bloody Riz (talk) 17:16, 8 October 2013 (UTC)
