    Thanks Poo:)

    Another Question.......can anyone eat the Recipe once you get it? I hope it is not bound to the Character that gets it because my cooks frying pan swings too slow and does little to no damage...lol

    Actually, I think any cook can use it, but it's abysmally difficult below 50 or 60 skill. I know, because my cook ate one well below 50.

    You'll also need to do the quest to get rotworm stew in the Underworld, as it's an ingredient in Blackrock stew.

    Thanks for all the info....Thanks Basara--I have the Blackrock Stew---one of my IDOC finds:)


    I have been killing Terathans by the dozens, but I do not gain any loyality. Do I have to do something before I can actually gain loyalty....I am currently at "0"?
    I see the message that I gained Fame and Karma, but not Loyalty???

    Interesting....I will try another char and see if they gain, but I wonder why this char will not gain. He is a tamer, so his pet is actually doing the killing---does that make a difference?

    I gained all my Ophid loyalty running Arachnid Champ Spawns, Fel and Ilsh both gave loyalty at that time. Tried to test to see if they still gave loyalty this morning but have yet to be able to pop off and arachnid one. A demon and undead kinda day so far ughhhh.

    It MIGHT be that you had to have taken part in that old conflict, to be able to earn points now - and that persons currently at 0 loyalty in all parts of it cannot start gaining ophidian loyalty now.

    Ok, I have tried just about all my characters that can fight and none of them gain any loyalty. I had two char with established loyalty points one with -3060 Ophid and one with +396 Ophid and neither one of them gain any loyalty when I kill Teratharn in mass.

    Any suggestions? Do I need to page a GM and see if they can fix this?

    Anyone want to sell me a Blackrock Stew Recipe....lol :)

    How the hell do you even get into the Terathan Keep? There's an impenetrable wall of enemies there, and they spawn faster than can be killed. Even if you make headway, they spawn hyper-fast behind you as you move inward, and then you end up surrounded, and then you end up dead, and then you end up having to Help -> Stuck out.

    I just bring my Sampire, let them surround me, Evade, spam Whirlwind and a bunch of dead Terathans:)
    Otherwise, ya--you just have to run in or stay outside and lure a few away at a time.

    Now, if I could only gain Loyalty from doing it:)

    I did it in Fel for that precise reason: you can go through Fire Dungeon => Despise => Tera Keep, and leave through Star Room.

    Start the Mephitis champ spawn and use a high area damage char to quickly raise to level 2 (level 1 is only Spiders and Scorpions. I used a lvl 6 spellweaver with Essence of Wind and cleaned all the level 1 spawn in minutes), then bring the char you want to raise Loyalty with and do the level 2 (all non-caster Terathans). You can go in the corridors on the side, nobody will go there to bug you, but if you stay on the central area chances some PKs going from Despise to Star Room will notice you. Level 2 should take you about 20 mins solo and raise your Ophidian Loyalty by about 3k points, you will likely get some SoTs in the process as a bonus. If you have some time to loose, let the candle reset before they reach level 3, or when Level 3 spawns get out until next day, as too many Matriarchs and Dread Spiders packed in a small area will likely get you stuck and kill you. If you want some fun you can come back with a stealther and watch those PKs beeing slaughtered as soon as they drop from the Despise teleporter on their way to StarRoom hehe.

    Overall I would say the entire process will take you 3 x 1 hour to reach to 10k Ophidian Loyalty. Don't bring anything you are afraid to loose in case you happen to cross a PK on the way, or in case you don't manage to get out when level 3 spawns.

    That could be why I do not gain loyalty--I have been fighting the ones there in the corner???? I will try the ones that are actually inside the keep.

    yes you need to be inside the outer wall when you run in try not to drag a bunch in with you ! the north side is usually prett safe to mark a rune ! thats where i mark mine and fight my way from there if alone its pretty easy to peel a couple off at a time

    oddly, that's where I killed both of mine, but i've killed others - I don't think it matters where. In fact, i got gain off the demon/shade versions east of Ter Mur also.

    You can definitely still get the recipe for blackrock stew, but as a pvper, I was happy to find out you are still able to get my favorite potion... "Shatter Potions".

    Now to get Bane Dragons to spawn again... (I shoulda tamed tons when they were around!!!!!!)

    BTW, there are certain spots you can teleport up onto the earthen walls dividing the parts of the path from each other, and either teleport back down, or be able to walk down. This can allow you to bypass some of the thick masses of ophidians.

    OK,,,,I just realized that I am a total Baffoon! I have been Killing the Ophids outside the Terathan Keep---not the Terathans! LOL Once I actually killed a Terathan, I did gain Loyalty. Now the long climb to get enough points to do the quest.

    At least I can confirm that killing Ophidians while trying to kill Terathans will not lower your Loyalty to them.

    I noticed that on LA terathan Keep is full of well--Terathans, but here on Atlantic the Keep has more Ophidians than Terathans? What gives??
