NPC location
# May 28 2006 at 8:53 AM Rating: Decent
Makarim is located at H-11 in Zeruhn Mines. If you look at the map you can see the pond all the way south west of the map. Naji is located at J-8 he is the guard to the right of the stairs before you go up the steps to the presidents office.

When I had my Galka WAR, I did this mission and I went fine, plus I didn't open the Key Item.

But this time, since I've deleted my WAR, in place of my magic character, I accidentally opened the item, and had Lucious give me "advice" saying it wasn't courteous, etc. Does it matter and is there any way to change that by doing it again?

I still got rank points for the mission.

I'm on Shiva and I just did this mission with my new Tarutaru RDM.

I once had a Galka WAR that I got to 15 before deciding to go with Tarutaru, but that time, I didn't open the key item in this, but this time, I did. Does it change anything?

Although Lucious gives me advice about not opening formal letters, etc, but the other time, he's all comendable, I think.

Naji is NOT inside the presidents building.. he is at the base of the stairs TO the presidents building.

and Mak is at H-11 in the mines... Go to the left after entering the mines and then cross the large room and to the right I think.

i th9ink it would be better if you add all the locations on the map. Like Makarim's location on the map instead of just the starting NPc

I can't find Naji in the MetalWorks area because a Galka won't let me in the Presidents Office, can anyone help?
Don't read the report
# Jan 13 2004 at 12:40 PM Rating: Good
It might be worth mentioning that if you open the report after getting it from Makarim, when you hand it in to Naji, Lucius will scold you and not compliment you. It doesn't affect your game at all, I wouldn't think, but still some people might care to know that.
# Jan 10 2004 at 8:47 PM Rating: Default
okay i know where Makkrim or whoever his name is but where is Naji ???
Got slimed!

the monsters in this cave are good for leveling up while you do this quest. just watch out for this one slime/blob thing that is hostile to you. at level 9 he still beat me up!! there seems to be only one instance of him and since everything else is not hostile, you could run through here at lvl 1.

Where is NPC?
# Nov 28 2003 at 9:58 PM Rating: Default
You will pass a large open area in the caves, Makarim is in that general area. Hope that helps.

Once you get to the "large open area", you will see an NPC named Smoke Breath (I-9). If you are facing him, and run diagonally to the right, you will find a cave entrance(H-9). Follow that back hugging the left wall. You will pass 2 openings to the right, then come to a fork - go right at the fork. Hug the left wall again and you will run in to Makarim.

The Position of Makarim is H-11.

Do you have to go thru that gate? Or go left before that?

Zerhun Mines
# Nov 11 2003 at 3:56 PM Rating: Default
The entrance the Zerhun Mines is at D7 in the Bastok Mines area. I did this mission at level 1. If you are being attacked by high level monsters or being asked to go shopping for meat jerky, you are pursuing a different mission or quest.
where is it!

wth's Zeruhn Mines ....
# Nov 07 2003 at 9:24 PM Rating: Default
I read the note before I gave it to him and he told me to get a strip of beef jerky or something.. where do I get that?
# Nov 07 2003 at 5:02 PM Rating: Default
I'm a level 7 and I can't seem to get passed the monsters, everytime I try to just pass by I get hit twice and it is over. Am I taking the wrong route or do u have to fight through, cuz if I have to fight the monsters, I can't win.
RE: confused
# Nov 08 2003 at 3:37 PM Rating: Default
I think you have passed through the mines and into a higher level area, I did the same thing myself while looking around. The NPC you are looking for is left from the entrance, not across the bridge that leads into the higher level cave. You will pass a large open area in the caves, Makarim is in that general area. Hope that helps.

Level 5
# Nov 05 2003 at 10:40 AM Rating: Default
I did this quest at level 5. My blue bar for rank points or whatever they are called went up 1/3. but I'm still "Rank 1"

I dont think it gives you anything other than rank points. Whoever said it gives you a rank or anything, must have been close to a rank in the first place and this just put them over the top.
Level min
# Nov 03 2003 at 11:30 AM Rating: Default
I did it at level 2, the blue bar on my rank meter went up nearly halfway but thats it... Im trying to finish the 2nd mission now.
#Anonymous, Posted: Nov 02 2003 at 3:36 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) I got you!
min lvl isnt 4
# Nov 02 2003 at 11:51 AM Rating: Default
I did this at Lvl 1 with ease but after i brought back the message and saw lucius i didnt get any upgrade or anything it just played a victory song and that was it :/ maybe ye can only get upgraded if your at lvl 4
Minimum level isn't 4
# Oct 31 2003 at 3:14 PM Rating: Default
I did this at level 2, I think. Maybe 3...but since I've done it and I still haven't gotten to 4...
