Scarlet Monastery(updated quest info and Herod tonight!)

Things that need to be done:

1. Get 40 or 40+ to make it a more fun trip without many wipes.
2. Review the quest listand definitely make sure to get the prereq done for In the Name of the Light. Killing 30 undead ravagers takes a bit of time solo so bring another.
3. Check out the blue drops.

Update:
This questshould be really easy for us. Talk to Mae in IF to get the quest. I think I saw the book last night close to the monks in the first instance we go in.

The only other quest besides the main one and the Titans one is a mage only quest called Rituals of Power. So, it looks like most of us will only being 2 quests. Which is fine with me.

I would like to clear the Herod wing tonight and that would leave us with only one wing (the toughest)left to finish the SM instance. Anyone game for late EST? (like 9est or later)

Maybe we can clear to Doan again to see if he ever drops anything other than the staff?

If I can get Vorcha up to 40+ from 37 I''d be interested in heading to the Monastery. Also, I am working on the ""Down the Scarlet Path"" quest in Desolace to kill 30 Undead Ravagers. If this is the same one everyone needs, I''ll be hunting them this evening around 8PM EST if anyone is interested in joining me.

Yes, that is the one. Anyone who needs it, join up with Lock.

I will run the instance several times like I have done with Gnomeville if you don''t make it to 40ish Lock. So, no rush. If the instance is like 4+ hours I may only do it twice however.

If you do the whole instance...

by whole all 3/4 Bosses then your in for at least 4+ hours.

Longer if your group is 37-40.

The final part takes some doing as it take a while to clear out every single mob before you take on the last guy.

You can do the individual pieces of SM in a much quicker time.

L&L, I need to do that quest too (37 priest). Gimme a tell (Fiddlin) when you start hunting them. I''ll try to be on at that time, but I''m on PST and may still be at work.

I''ll try to be level appropriate for when you guys do an SM run. Priest boss pisses me off; she''s old-school warcraft priest in that she can sleep and combat-rez... I''m so jealous.

Good dagger quest reward for you though Curb . I''m sure you already know.

I am going for the sword I think.

So, have you cleared it already with the paly?

Yeah, I did only the final bosses in a group w/ Laf and Org so I didn''t spend too much time in the other instances (broken up into multiple instances). Would you rather have me bring the paly if there''s room for me and I''m on? Up to you guys.

Not sure why you''re going sword. DPS is good for me, but it swings slow for me (upgraded from electrocutioner leg 1.70 to sword which is 2.20). I like my weapons fast for some reason. Dagger has a proc on it and is blindingly fast (1.50) which should be nice for that proc. But I guess that means a worse backstab then if it''s that fast.

Bring whatever you want Fidd. I wouldn''t mind doing a few exploratory trips into SM to see how things are laid out and maybe get a few kills on the boss mobs. Can we do that with 3 or 4 people?

The sword''s +9sta is the reason.

I have the brother anton quest currently. give ruskin a /w and i''ll be there tomorrow (Tuesday) is my ''big game night'' as the wife calls it so I''ll def have time then. although I''ll probably be on for an hour tonight before dinner.

EDIT - As I said I have a prequel to one of these quests and am definately interested in going with you guys. My quest log is still full unfortunately, I have 3 elites in STV.

They are to Kill Kurzen, Destroy the Alter of Tides and the last Raptor Mastery. Anyone want to help me do these and then go quest hunting for the SM quests?

And to clarify it looks like there is 3 quest for the alliance in this instance?

You''re gonna definitely want Leaping or some other crowd-control person in on this too. My only forms of crowd control as a priest either a: take me out of the picture as a healer or b: generates more aggroed mobs in a dungeon.

Isn''t stamina easy enough to get with armor? Especially if you have Ruskin and Vorcha doing leather-working, though I doubt they''ve specialed yet and thus make level appropriate gear.

2 more things: I doubt Fiddlin is gonna be level appropriate by tomorrow night. Curb is gonna be whining the whole way to the Monastery about how he needs a mount .

What is it with the low-level rare drops in high-level instances? A ""Level 31 required"" drop in a 40+ instance is probably going to end up as auction or vendor fodder, as will a relatively low-dps two-hander.

Isn''t stamina easy enough to get with armor?

Not right now so much and the proc on that dagger will go off rarely. I will just decide when the time comes.

Curb is gonna be whining the whole way to the Monastery about how he needs a mount .

At least half way. 40 more gold to go.

Tuesday night would work for me. I''ll be there. It''s been a while since Gnomerang and I''ve been itchin to try another instance. We also have Uldaman on the horizon, which I think is good for a group in the low 40''s.

I think Tuesday sounds to me like the night.

I''m at 39.5 right now, but I''m not sure if I will be on tonight (Monday). I think unless we want it to be really difficult/timeconsuming/wipe we should try to get to around 42 for all of us, but then I''m not sure that will be this week. Of course we could always do the exploring thing like you said Flux.

I already got the ravagers, but need the other quests.

Gimme gimme gimme on that Illusionary Rod! And Whitemane''s Chapeau!

So far, I think the Scarlet Monastry has the best bosses. They have very interesting personalities and voices, especially the guy in the cathedral with the high lady that rezzes him after you kill him. If you plan to fight him, make sure you clear out everyone in the monastry first, including the side rooms, otherwise he calls everyone in. First time I did it, our whole group got wiped and then chased to the entrance. GG us.

I will be 41 after a couple of quests tonight, you will be 40, Ruskin is 43 and Fiddler could bring his uber paladin. We can do it!

Throw in a level 50 Lafrete = easy instance.

They are to Kill Kurzen, Destroy the Alter of Tides and the last Raptor Mastery. Anyone want to help me do these and then go quest hunting for the SM quests?

Kurzen = easy at our level. I still need altar and I know where it is now. I know exactly where the last raptor is also. We need about 4 people to get him.

I still have a bunch in STV, including those 3.

I did the Raptor Mastery and the final hunting quest (to kill the Tiger King ... both are lvl 43 elites) last night. It wasn''t easy but a group of 3 (lvl 39 hunter, lvl 39 hunter, lvl 37 druid) was able to complete both. We wiped once taking on the tiger king.

Where do you get the king bangalash quest? I mean what''s the prerequisite for it. I know that hemmingway (I mean Nessingwary) gives it but he sure doesn''t want to give me the quest. Do I have to finish the pages quests first? I hate those quests as they take up some much bag/bank slots. I even did the quest with the 1% chance drop of tigress fang around the area but still no quest.

Bangalash is one cool looking white tiger.

You may need to be a certain level and I''m pretty sure you have to have done all the other ''Mastery'' quests. I don''t think the page quests count (but I could be wrong).

One note I found out later, is that you can convert the ''chapters'' as you find them taking up less space in you bank. I did them all at once and it was very nice experience although I agree that some of the collection quests are just scary. I feel that if you''re supposed to find 8+ of any one item, those things better drop on 2 out of 3 kills. But I''m a whore to Blizzard right now and I''ll deal with having to spend an hour in stromgarde to help my buddies find the badges.

I have yet to see Bangalash anywhere. Thott shows him spawning all over the place.

Bangalash, the head tiger? I did that one I''m pretty sure. I found him up on one of the hills, above where the tigresses are. I can show you guys where I found him if you need him next time we''re together.

Yeah, the white tiger.

Even though we kinda decided not to do SM tonight after talking about it last night, I still want to go check it out actually. Anyone game?

The circle for the white tiger is actually pretty small compared to the normal tiger boss. I put a map note on map for the center of this circle last night.

Thanks eezy, I would like to get that one off my logs.

Oh yeah, I finally went to the shimmering flats like you suggested. Can you say 40 bars of iron and 20 bars of mithril?!?

Dude, it''s mining heaven there. It seems deserted too. Sounds like you found that out tho

There are other deserted areas too but I sure as hell won''t share those secrets.

Yeah, when I ran through Shimmering Flats last week it was totally empty and mines everywhere. I was like I wish Curb were here!

I''m up for checking out the monastery whenever. What zone is it in anyway?

I think it is close to Brill (the undead newbie city).

Kinda glad y''all are gonna skip SM tonight. I forgot all about the football game, and I want to catch at least some of it. If I''m on for any period of time tonight, I wouldn''t sticking my head inside with y''all if you decide to do that.
