Skyshrine Mercs and Claws of Veeshan Faction Items

Written by Feldon on . Posted in Game Updates & Maintenance, Itemization

If you’ve bumped into those three new mercenaries in the old Skyshrine city who just won’t give you the time of day, Gninja has some spoilers for you:

The [elite mercenaries] in Skyshrine require a “Key” which you get access to after you have completed the heroic questlines. Through those same questlines, you get a portal to appear in the contested (near the solo zone entrance portal) that will take you back to the city back in time at will.

UPDATE: We have some first-hand player notes from Techno:

  • There are 3 “elite” mercenaries in Skyshrine, Inquisitor, Monk (uses black widow stance), and I want to say Brigand, one in each of the districts.
  • I say “elite” because they’re a step down from the other elites. Elites cost 30p to buy and 3p every 30 minutes with a 5minute cooldown. The golem “elite” cost 5p to buy, 30g every 30 minute.
  • They’re really a middleground between the old ones and the elites.

Being able to travel to the pre-war City of Shyshrine is crucial if you intend to buy items from the Claws of Veeshan Faction merchant. Along with +50,000 faction, you’ll need the head of Dozekar which has been giving players fits due to it being marked LORE. Tip of the hat to Celidur for pointing us in the right direction on these items.

    Why did they make it “Dozekar’s Head” and not ‘Dozekar’s Scale’ or something like that.

    now the NPC is all like Thanks for giving me the Head of Dozekar, here is your new pair of gloves. if you want the helmet though you will need to get me the head of Dozekar. and along that line, hes only got one head and there is 6 people in a group who each get one or 24 people in a raid who get one lol.

    Scales would just make more sense to me but its not that significant. =p

    I’ve killed him in both raid, and group scenarios and have not received a head. Am I missing something? Or does this not go to your bag anymore I thought you had to add it to the currency window manually?

      Did you pick up the quest on zone-in to the heroic zone? Have you done the heroic access quest timeline?

    It should go directly in your currency window, with shards, marks.

    One thing to note as they are lore (why?), one might need to transfer them to another character to receive additional heads when slaying the big mean dragon in the future

    a) by head, maybe they mean boy parts, and maybe he has tons of them… you never know

    b) there are 3 “elite” mercenaries in skyshrine, Inquisitor, Monk(uses black widow stance wtf), and I want to say Brigand.
    One in each of the districts. I say “elite” because they’re a step down from the other elites. Elites cost 30p to buy and 3p every 30 minutes with a 5minute cooldown. The golem “elite”s cost 5p to buy, 30g every 30 minute and I don’t know their time because I’m not giving up my 70k dps elite to get one. They’re really a middleground between the old ones and the elites.

    Time on the golem “elites” is 2 minutes, same as the others.

    Do you need a dozekar head per each item from the merchant?

      Yep. It is the new “shard”. Which makes it being LORE all the more puzzling.

    Also as a clarification, after you complete the access quest-line that starts with the breach and ends with Final Item for Jorlak, you will the be able to see the portal to The Forbidden City of Dracar(sp)? Which is the same non aggro city you visit during the quest lines. After that, you must complete the questlines inside of Underdepths (Essentially its 3 quests to kill all of the named), you will get your mount and be able to hire the golems.

    The 3 golem mercenaries are actually called “Signature Mercenaries” ingame when you attempt to rename them.

    From Gninja:

    FYI the mercenaries in Skyshrine are not Elite mercenaries they are normal mercenaries with cool appearances.

    There are 3 areas there that have these mercenaries

    Monk /way 351.37, 0.00, 42.05
    Brigand /way 99.84, 0.00, -375.75
    Inquisitor /way -342.78, 0.00, -21.09

    To Hire these mercenaries you need a Ancient Skyshrine Control Wand which is obtained in the Underdepths (4th instance) from the second to the last named this key is also used to summon a golem to help with the last named (dragon)

    I zoned in an alt to loot the Golem Control Rod off the second to last named in the zone, but was not able to then hire the mercenaries, so it would appear you need to complete the UD questline.
