Drop the Orcish Axe

I was on my Merchant Route and stopped to kill the first Orc I had ever seen. He dropped an Orcish Axe. Being a Windurstian, I had no idea what this was for. Searched the AH and couldn't find it, then realized it was Rare/Ex. To bad. Into the recycler for Conquest Points.
Higher drop rate?

I've engaged a number of Orc Fodders who refuse to engage me or acknowledge me until they get close to the city gate. I wonder if there's a certain type of fodder that's got some sort of Scout Routine or something. When I kill the fodders close to the gates, they usually drop axes... might be coincidence, maybe not.

It looks like Rank 1-1 is required first
# Nov 23 2003 at 6:25 PM Rating: Default
This is the first mission I got but I've killed quite a few Orcist Fodders now and no drop.

What I think I need to do is the Rank 1-1 mission first. Which I have no clue what that is.

Nevermind about the do the rank mission 1-1 first.

Had a brain fade :P

# Nov 21 2003 at 11:12 PM Rating: Default
I finished this mission pretty quickly.. I got my axe from an Orcish Fodder in East Ron. You might have to head to the tougher parts of the area to get this drop.
Orc Scout
# Nov 19 2003 at 3:48 PM Rating: Default
The missions specifies a Orc Scout. I've killed lots of Orcs but have not found a scout so I also haven't gotten an ax.
no dropped axes
# Nov 19 2003 at 2:51 PM Rating: Decent
I have killed dozens of the "fodder"s and have yet to see an axe. Is this a very rare drop or am I doing something wrong?
Is there a certain one?
# Nov 15 2003 at 8:30 PM Rating: Decent
I have killed probably close to 50 Orc Fodder types and have yet to see a single ax. Is there something I should be looking for when I do a check?
RE: Is there a certain one?

Repeating the quest
# Nov 12 2003 at 5:30 PM Rating: Default
What's the ultimate reward of this misison? What benefit do you gain for repeating it?
RE: Repeating the quest
# Jan 30 2004 at 11:58 AM Rating: Default
you gain rank points by completing missions

and you will need to reach a certain number of rank points before a new mission opens up for ya

simply doing each mission once will not let give you the required rank points....unless you trade the TK crystals
pay attention.

There are multiple guards at each gate leaving the city. 1 guard normally has a couple letters after his name "name T.K." or some such. He casts Signet and lets you spend conquest points. He is one of the guards that stands directly at the gate leaving. Normally in the little area around the gate there will be a single guard standing. He (no matter WHAT gate) is the one that gives missions.

You can start and complete any mission through these guards, if you start the mission at one gate you can complete it at another. Every gate has one of these guards.
Cut scene
# Nov 06 2003 at 9:38 PM Rating: Default
Hello guys, I got disconnected when I turn in the axe so I missed the cut scene. Is there someone kind enough to tell me what the scene is about? Thanks
3rd guard on inside
# Nov 06 2003 at 7:38 AM Rating: Default
I think it's by any gate. There are two guards in front of the gate, one will cast signet, it isn't those two, it's one a few steps to the right if facing the gate (on the inside of the gate, not outside the walls). There is a third guard along the wall to the right who gives the quest, I think the south gate guard name is Grilau. I got this quest as a black mage, so it's not class specific like somebody told me today....

Thanks for the tip with the trade feature. I also got told to go away. As a side note, the axes are worth about 145 gp if you sell them.

Need to lower min level
# Nov 04 2003 at 3:37 PM Rating: Default
I picked up this quest at level 2, so I'm assuming that it's a level 1 mission.
RE: Need to lower min level
# Nov 10 2003 at 6:35 AM Rating: Default
level req. 4 presumably represents your ability to KILL an orcish fodder.

which is about accurate for all of the classes ive tried it with.
Just want to point out
# Nov 03 2003 at 2:04 PM Rating: Default
Each gate has one guard that stands off to one side inside the town Each gate guards name is different you do not have to look for Grilau specificly. I just got one off of another gate guard (Though I do not remember his name).

I am not talking about the ones that stand directly next to the gate but he will be off to one side or the other, and ask you what you want with this gatehouse or some such nonsense and you say a mission. bla bla bla
# Nov 03 2003 at 8:23 AM Rating: Default
this quest is also repeatable
# Nov 02 2003 at 7:01 PM Rating: Default
where is grilau?
RE: grilau?
# Nov 02 2003 at 7:44 PM Rating: Decent
He is standing off alone to one side of the western gate
I can't give axe
# Nov 02 2003 at 5:26 PM Rating: Decent

When I got this mission, I already had the orc axe. When I went to talk to Grilau, he gave me the mission, but now when I talk to him, he tells me to go complete my mission.
RE: I can't give axe
# Nov 03 2003 at 12:49 PM Rating: Default
you need to Trade with him...
Select him and open a trade, give him the axe and you'll be done. I too had the axe before i spoke with him, no problems at all.
Orcish Fodder???
# Nov 02 2003 at 3:29 AM Rating: Decent
When I get the mission they ask for an Orc Scout...is this a glitch or is there a Scout out there to kill??
RE: Orcish Fodder???
# Nov 10 2003 at 6:34 AM Rating: Default
Scouts don't have to be named "Scout"...
Which Guard?
# Nov 01 2003 at 1:45 PM Rating: Default
I am not recieving this mission from the guards. Which guards specifically give out this quest?
RE: Which Guard?
# Nov 01 2003 at 11:06 PM Rating: Default
The guard named Grilau
RE: Which Guard?
# Nov 01 2003 at 8:34 PM Rating: Default
