Mistakes in the "Aban key quest"

Post by Svigerfar » Wed Jan 28, 2009 2:18 am

Hello. I have discovered some minor, but stil important mistakes in the guide on how to get the Aban perma-key.

1: It should say clearly that you should not exit the chat with "Ecclesiast Aban Fala", because if you do, as I did - you need to restart the quest because you are not able to chat with him anymore to give him the Insigna.

2: "Repeat the procedure for the 2nd and 3rd Swift Silvertails (which means that you need to use another 2 insignias).", as stated here, you need to add a new insigna every time you have made the Swift Silvertals a Blessed Silvertail, which is not the case. You just have to add 1 insigna to the Acient Device, and use that same device on every Swift Silvertal.

3: To correct my self on what I said on point "2", you actually cant do anything to the Swift Silvertails. You need to add the Acient Device + Insigna to the Dreaming Silvertail. Rightclick the Dreaming Silvertail to open a chat with it, and tell it to "Put the device on its eyes" (something like that, I just finnished the quest and I am not able to see exactly what it says). After the chat, it opens a trade with you, and you put the modified Acient Device in to the trade and accept. When you do this, the silvertail will become Blessed and you will get an "accomplished message". Do this 2 more times on different Dreaming Silvertails, and return to Sipius Aban Lux-Wel in the Garden, and recieve the The Key to the Garden of Aban.

(4): There are some small gramatic mistakes aswell, like:

"Take the second of these to get back to to Donna Red". I do not understand the sentence and if I do, that you need to talk to Donna Red, it is pointless because you do not need to talk to her ever again, after you have chated with her the first time in the start on the quest.

The other thing is the "to get back to to Donna Red". This is nothing missguiding, but it should be corrected anyhow.

One more un-nessesary add is this:
" if you have trouble with falling off the natural stone bridges (which will send you to the Athen Shire area on Rubi-Ka) you may be better off walking on them". I do not get this message, it is clearly a warning about falling down somewhere, but I can not find any spot where you can fall down except from the edge, which is quite obvious.

With all this said, I know I am no perfect person either, you can probably search my text for gramatic errors, but this was just to point out the most important mistakes or errors in the guide (1-3 are the most important ones)

I hope someone will fix this, because I know alot of people that follow this guide and get the same problem as me. Ao-universe is probably the best site for guides on things conserning Anarchy Online, I have used it alot of times and it has helped me every single time! Keep up the good work!

Best regards

Hiya

Thanks for your feedback! I know I certainly do not have a clan character of any significant level to allow me to check through the guides we have that are specifically for Clanners.

I would hope that one of our clan/neutral AOU team members will have a look at the whole guide and revise as necessary, including your feedback, as soon as possible!!

Thanks again,

Ukblizzard

I suspect Ukblizzard just did a "small " Cut/Paste from SL library on this quest :D Cuz when the quest was introduced (SL that is, as expansion) you needed to have 3 insigns. one for each silvertail. and if you closed window when talking to NPC u had to do it over again :D

So, basically the guide was not wrong, but outdated :D

Nope, wasnt me :) Someone else might have sourced it from there though and given credits.

I guess it doesnt help that everyone just sees the "last editor" and not the original guide starter in some cases!!

Made some adjustments, but the quest still needs rechecking by a clanner completely to ensure its accurate.

I might start a temporal clan character during the weekend to check and confirm the quest... in the end it's the first garden so shouldn't be hard to go through with a super low level

I've got a feeling we really could do with a new Clan researcher. There's stacks of stuff that only has the Omni side of things well documented because all of the currently active researchers are for some strange reason Omni. :wink:

Request for checkup on the Aban quest now. Reworked it and could need some input on possibly remaining mistakes.

Thank you in advance

Great work Niodemus! From what I see, the guide is perfect! Of course some minor details may be missing. I will do a run-through using only your guide, if it is needed, to make sure it is 100% correct.
