Aerakyn Mentors:

Aerakyn mentor quests can be found in both Qeynos and Freeport.

It does, however, start somewhat differently in Qeynos.

For the Nonce
Inside the province district of N. Qeynos an Aerakyn walking along the roadway adjacent to the Ironforge Exchange and the Bank will encounter a halfling named Nonce. Nonce is infuriated at you, calling you names and accusing you of spiriting away his sister, Sloish. Sloish is in the thrall of the Cult of Endings.

Initiating the End
The Cult of Endings believes that the end of Norrath is approaching and the Aerakyn are to lead them. The cult meets in a secret room in S. Qeynos, which you'll be able to locate on your map. As an Aerakyn the cultist's revere you and their leader will "initiate" you into the fold in a secret ceremony. It is obvious to you that the path the cultist's are on is fanatical and wrong. Once you're in, it becomes your task to convince Sloish to return home. She remains reluctant to abandon the cult.

The Next World
At this point in the mentoring series you will secretly meet with the cultist's for the last time. The confrontation with the cult leader will be brief (I did bring along the Aerakyn Mercenary) afterwhich you will announce to the assembled followers that they were being deceived by false prophecies. Sloish feels somewhat foolish during your final dialogue with her, but she is agreeable to returning to her brother and their home.

The mentoring session for Aerakyn in Freeport begins on the the walkway above the execution pit on the south side of the arena.

Along the road in West Freeport you encounter an Aerakyn named Psellic (171.01, -3.53, 20.35). Nearby stands a Teir'Dal (Dark Elf) that doesn't seem to be paying any particular attention to either you or Psellic. Psellic is worried as to the fate of Veeshan's Scale, and wishes to enlist your help in searching for information about it within Freeport.

A bit of lore here: Aerakyn were the foot soldiers of Kerafyrm, and were held in thrall by a charm known as Veeshan's Scale. With the imprisonment of Kerafyrm the Scale had become lost.

IN CHAINS AGAIN

You'll interact with three Aerakyn NPC's within Freeport. Myll'dreth (-45.73, 0.00, 232.51), Kel'drax (-254.77, 0.00, 200.09) and Illevius (-93.40, 0.00, 13.53). You'll ask each NPC if they feel as if they are being manipulated against their wills. Myll'dreth suggests you search Temple Street for clues, but don't go there yet. Speak with Kel'drax and Illevius first. Kel'drax suggests you consult a scryer in the Temple of War. Illevius suggests you consult with someone named Kintel Solis about documented information pertaining to Age's End.

In the back room of the Temple of War you will consult with Corina Farsight. Corina is agreeable to the task for 1,000 plat (don't worry if you don't have it, as you won't need it). As she begins to scry she is enveloped in fire and flashes out of existence.

Entering the Academy of Arcane Science you don't find Kintel Solis, but on a table on the upper level is a copy of Age's End <house item/book>. With this information you can now proceed to Temple Street to search for clues.

Entering Temple Street, you can ivis or stealth to avoid the agro from the wandering Necromechs. You're searching for four clues. The first update is at 91.08, 0.00, 113.20, the second is at 50.41, 0.00, 101.13, the third is at 7.84, 0.00, 108.72, and the fourth clue is at 17.67, 0.00, 5.89. Having completed your search you decide to return to Psellic to update him on your progress.

When you return to WFP where you had left Psellic he is gone. The Tier'Dal nearby (167.00, 0.00, 5.89) will start the next part of this quest.

The Teir'Dal, Plex, has a task for you, and you'll do it without question, or Plex will denounce you as a traitor and spy. Apparently the spy was in fact Psellic, working for Qeynos, and now it is your task to track him down and deal with him.

PSYCHING OUT PSELLIC

Psellic is first found in Temple Street at -7.17, 3.02, 108.28. As you track him to the apartment he is in you overhear him apparently speaking with someone with a communication-device of some sort. He greets you when you first enter. When the conversation gets heated Psellic activates a teleport charm and escapes.

Trailing Psellic to Beggar's Court, he is found at -17.61, 0.00, 20.11. Here, he is exhorting several Aerakyn to join him in his search for the Scale. His speech seems persuasive until you step forward and denounce Psellic as a spy for Antonia and Qeynos. Psellic takes this opportunity to teleport away again.

Trailing Psellic to the Scale Yard, he is found at 0.41, 0.00, 105.37. Here you learn the truth. Psellic was all the time working on behalf of the Aerakyn, even though being an agent of Qeynos. At this point you get to choose if you'll let Psellic escape, or kill him.

Return to Plex to you inform her you have dealt with Psellic. Informing you that your sentencing is discharged, you ask if she has any information about the Scale. "Do you truly wish to know?" she says. Exclaiming to her that all the Aerakyn need to know, Plex says "I will tell you everything I know about the Scale, but first you need to earn the right to that information."

Agreeing to the task Plex offers opens the next quest.

THE LEFT HAND

In SFP, in the kitchen area at -217.24, 0.00, 144.81, is Llaros. According to Plex, Llaros is a dangerous assassin planning to kill the Overlord, Lucan D'Lere, and Plex is conscripting you with the task of 'assassinating the assassin.'

Confronting Llaros, he appears to be a chef. He is surprised by you, and pleads that he is nothing more than a chef. That he has 'no mettle' and 'can't raise steel.' At this point you can decide how you will deal with Llaros. Afterward, return to Plex.

Plex commends you when you report back to her, having "dealt" with Llaros. Now you ask "What about Veeshan's Scale?" Plex slyly informs you that she doesn't have any information about Veeshan's Scale.

Your rewards for this quest are coin, Age's End <house item book>, and the Ring of the Dragon.

IMO - I would not be surprised to find that Veeshan's Scale might turn up in the hands of either the Priest's of Innoruuk or, worse, Cristanos herself.

Sorry, we didn't get to test Aerakyn, so we don't have that information yet. If you want to contribute to ZAM and help others, you're quite welcome!

Thank you for taking the time to write this!

If anyone can help, I could use a little more help with the Freeport side of these quests. I was able to locate Psellic the first time in Temple Street, but I cannot manage to find him the second time. Any tips?

I am doing my best here to recall the steps. On the last step, which will be the final confrontation with Psellic, you'll follow the trail to one of the restricted zones in Qeynos. You've already tracked Psellic once, now I believe you will find him at the docks in Beggar's Court. This is the point where you can decide if Psellic is worth fighting, or simply let him go. My apologies for not having any of the dialogue written down. I hope this helps.

This is a great starting point, from here we can get them in the wiki and start building on it.

This isn't actually complete. I just found Psellic in Beggar's Court, had my character argue against him to the other Aerakyn only to have Psellic disappear. The quest then updates to say I need to track him down once more. Thus far I have found no indication in-game or on the internet of where he goes after Beggar's Court.

I did find him in the scale yard, but all he does is wave and say well met.
I have know clue what to do. I tried leaving and coming back in, but it didn't change anything.

I've been reading some other comments that the quest involving Psellic is "bugged." If you submit an in-game report to SOE they should respond (I hope so).

I recently edited my original post for the FP part of the Aerakyn racial quest, complete with POI's. I hope this helps you to finish your Aerakyn quest in FP. Good luck.
