EverQuest II Ashen Order Quests Guide



EverQuest II Ashen Order Quests Guide by Cwiyk

This
guide is a work in progress. If you notice something that needs
correction or if you have new information to contribute please don’t
hesitate to post. =)

Anyone of any class can do these quests apparently. Everyone starts out the same by doing quests for Master Irudan Ortai and Master Akuno Beslin. At this point things branch off a little. Citizens of Qeynos continue the quest series by doing quests for Shu Fang Qiand
will receive Ashen Order faction from completing quests, while Citizens
of Freeport do quests for Shing Ho and recieve Ashen Disciple faction.
The first three quests given by Shu Fang Qi and Shing Ho are the same. Beginning with the fourth quest the quest names indicate for which faction one is working. (Thanks to Etayn for posting this information.)

the Ashen Order rewards you with “the Jade Tiger” while questing for
the Ashen Disciples rewards you “the Ebon Dragon.”

As
soon as you accept the task of slaying the desert spirit, a 59^ solo

(Original information submitted by: Keldoth)
Once
you get Warmly from Trials of Ash you are given a level 59 solo quest
‘Strange Deliveries’.   This quest takes you to Jin Li Fang
(sp?) (correct name is Jiao Li Rong) near
the great sabers.  Talk to him, kill the lvl 59 spectre that
spawns (1 up arrow, but I think its random), reward is +3000 Ashen
Order.
Reward: 3000 Ashen Order faction

7th Quest: “Diplomatic Liasons” from Shu Fang Qi and Shing Ho
Deliver note to Gilp Jadefist
Gilp Jadefist is in Eldar Grove at +793 -19 -405, on a rock in the pond northwest of the dojo.
Return to Shu Fang Qi.
(Original information submitted by: Keldoth)
This
requires you to go to Qeynos and talk to someone in the monk guild
there (forget who).  Return to Shu Fang Qi for +6500 Ashen Order
faction.  This puts you right at the edge of ally. (The Ashen
Disciple version of this quest sends you to speak to Enforcer Drulk in
Big Bend. -thanks to Gorag1)
Reward: 6500 Ashen Order faction

Diplomatic
Liasons concludes Shu Fang Qi’s line of quests. By this point you
should have high warmly status with the Ashen Order. For further quests
you need to speak to Zhao Wu.

Zhao Wu is at +39 -56 -1188, in T’Narev next to Master Kiri.

Quest:  “A Split in the Ashen Order” from Zhao Wu / “Kufu’s Intentions” from Shen Rai (9, -68, -1300)
(Original information submitted by: Keldoth)Level
55 heroic.  This is an instance below T’narev called ‘The Caves of
Knowledge’.

The door to the Cave of Knowledge is at +93 -219 -1207. To get
there, starting from the carpet waypoint at T’Narev, walk up to the
cliff overlooking the ocean. Turn on invis and jump down into the sea.
Swim along the edge of the cliff heading east towards Sinking Sands.
You will find a cave opening at the water level along the cliffs. Enter
this cave, follow it to the end and you will find two doors. One
of those doors is the etrance to the Cave of Knowledge.

Bring a full group (or invis) to talk to Kufu, Keeper
of Knowledge at the end of the instance. Kufu, The Keeper of Knowledge
is at +236 +2 +289

(The Ashen Disciple version of this quest requires you to walk through
the  Cave of Knowledge and right click an item near Master Kufu. -thanks to Gorag1)

Return to Zhao Wu for +3000 (? forget) Ashen Order, 18 g and a choice of 3 items.
Reward: 3000 Ashen Order faction, 18 gold and choice of 3 items (earring, leather gloves, rapier)

A
Split in the Ashen Order appears to be Zhao Wu’s only quest. By this
point you should have ally statues with the Ashen Order. For further
quests you need to speak to Master Kiri. I believe you need max ally
status to receive Master Kiri’s quest. This will require you to kill
Ashen Disciples.
Master Kiri is at +41 –56 –1185, in T’Narev next to Zhao Wu.

Quest: Learning the Way from Master Kiri (fixed, completable as of 11/09/05)
First part of quest: Killing fifteen Ashen disciples
Simply kill any 15 Ashen Disciples.
Second part of quest: Speak with Jun Shan and complete the warm up task
Enter the Cave of Knowledge instance “The Ashen Elite Training Grounds.”

Jun
Shan is at +181 0 +222, past the agro Ashen acolytes, past Master Lu
Ree, next to the training dummy at the edge of the pond. Jun Shan says
to punch the dummy till it breaks. You need to click it repeatedly
quite a few times. Continue doing
so until you get a journal update.
Third part of quest: Speak with Lee Chen and complete the required meditation
Lee
Chen is at +194 0 +272, sitting on a meditation mat near the pond. Lee
Chen says to meditate on the mat next to her (him?). Sit down on the
mat next to Lee Chen for a few moments and you will receive a journal
update.

Fourth part of quest: Speak with T(can’t remember full name) and learn to take a hit.

T is standing next to the pond near the training dummy. Speak with T and she will “punch” you. (You take no damage though you are knocked back a ways.) Speak to T repeatedly until you receive the journal update.

Fifth part of Quest: Return to Master Kiri to receive your reward.

Return to Master Kiri, who congradulates you and bestows upon you the suffix title “the Jade Tiger.”

Reward: Suffix title “the Jade Tiger”

(Original info submitted by: BrizaOrin)
a
new quest to do some tasks and enter Ashen elite training ground…
Which however seems to be more of less buggy place, but aside from
that. Can confirm that max faction indeed opens up new quest, and
no – you dont need to be lvl 60 either.
(Addendum from Activesoup)
I
got into elite training ground as well , at this point i m a bit
clueless on what to do next. this seems to be a solo instance and is
same entrance than hall of discipline and cave of knowledge.. First
step inside need to hit a dummy until it explodes, stuck on next part
which require to meditate near some guy , been sittin on mat for 15 20
min now , still no update
edit
: 5 solo 60 ^ mob at entrance, tried to kill them to see if that
changed something , killed 2 of them and died on 3 rd ( am only 57
swashie p) . Had to revive out and then was unable to zone in anymore ,
no lockout just could not see option in instance choice.

This appears to be the conclusion of the Ashen quest series. If
anyone finds any way to do further quests for the Ashen Order please
post such information here. =)

Thank you to everyone that contributed to this guide and to everyone that sent in /bug reports to get the last quest fixed
