    Hail: it is not in the item catalog. I get one ever few Troglodyte kills. What is it for, and what does it do? Thanks.

    Except the kind of "fetish" they mean is, as dictionary.com puts it, "an object regarded with awe as being the embodiment or habitation of a potent spirit or as having magical potency". Basically it's a carving or statue of some sort believed to have great magical or spiritual power, wether it does or doesn't.

    Not the dirty kind of "fetish". I swear some people have the maturity of gradeschoolers.

    Just collected 12 of these but it says they must be marked as quest items? How do I do that?

    Its ok I have done it now. As its been a while since I played I forgot you had to toggle quest items. Why the game doesnt recognise the items I don't know

    Dont expect too much from the rewards. Did the quest several times during my PVM-Ironman on Siege and the reward is highly useless ;-)

    Yeah marking quest items isn't intuitive unless you really "get how UO does stuff". I think a lot of us went Hmmmmmmmm the first time we saw that needs to be marked a quest item thing.

    What's worse is I think we have 3 different sorts of "quest" engines... adding to the confusion...

    Top that off with 5 different ways to turn in quest items... from dropping the item on the NPC to toggling...
