Did some preliminary work on this quest today.

I will have more questions, but here are some details I will need.

-Prismatic Dragon Scale: When exactly did it start dropping and what all possibly dropped it? In Ele's post here there is evidence scales were dropping in 09/01. Did Melalafen, scales, and quest appear in 09/01 as the thread seems to indicate?

-Melalafen spawn time. 3.5 days? (+/- ?)

-Melalafen hitpoints?

I decided to try and find Melalafen on the eqlive test server, and to my surprise, he was up. I interrogated him and followed him around for quite a while. His spawn points, depops/immediate repops, and overlapping waypoints will make for an interesting no spawn-camping experience.

For the Lore enthusiasts, if myself or someone else interested in finding this npc spawned on live has the chance to speak to it, are there any particular phrases we should try? I tried asking about the ring of scale, veeshan, sleeper, kerafyrm etc.

I guess that's all I have for now. Really, any additional research into this would be beneficial.

I think I have finished all of this.

Everything becomes active when the sleeper is awoken.

The scale will be a very rare drop, from any normal sleeper npcs, after the sleeper has awoken.

If other research is discovered, let me know.


Fixed, pending update

I remember when this quest was implemented on live, I was on the Veeshan server. The repop time of Melalafen was def shorter than 3 days. At least at first, because some players found out that Melelafen actually dropped an essence lence if you killed him and ppl were lining up in WW to kill him on respawn. It was a couple of hours, maybe 8 at the most. Long time ago.

This was hotpatched very quickly since it allowed you to bypass the entire point of handing in your key, I'd say within two days. It's possiblt the respawn time was changed that that point I guess.

Nilbog: struck gold on this one, here's the post by the first guy to complete the Melalafen quest.

There is more to it, although to this day I beleive its 'off the cuff', that is ad lib - making it up as they go along. We were told on the Lum the Mad site, to check out sleepers, we may find something interesting. We went ahead and killed every single mob in sleepers. All of them. We (I) looted a prismatic dragon scale. So, now we had some substance / hint that there was more. Ironically, there was no one to give this scale to at the time...

About 4 weeks later (last patch) Melalafen was introduced into west wastes. That evening I went to him, and hailed and barraged him with every statement regarding ST I could come up with, the successful statement being: 'what prismatic dragon scale'

Corroboration in the Mobhunter archives:

Based on the above, prismatic scales started dropping in Post-Sleeper ST in August 2001, and Melalafen was added in September 2001.
