Ulgrim Rumors

Free Rumors:

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "If you ask me, the Virindi Apostates have been a little too quiet. Even Claude doesn't say anything much these days. They're up to something..."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Oh, don't bother searching out Sean the Speedy's new exploration markers. I've already stolen them all. For a stout, I'll put them back though."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "There's something new in the crater by the Crystalline Crag. Yep, I dropped my favorite mug down there while I was tinkering with my new machine. Be a dear and fetch it for me?"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Truly? You want to know about the wisdom of the ancients? Or at least the wisdom of this ancient? Well, I could tell you about the new ghost hunter lady in the graveyard, but it'll cost you a pint of stout."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "What? Why are you bothering me? Fetch an old man a stout to wet his whistle and maybe you'll hear about what's going on in Aerlinthe these days."

Stout Rumors:

Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I know who's behind the bandit raids on Baishi. It's Ben Ten! She's gone bad, I tell you! Bad bad bad! Bad like beer that's been left out too long!"
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "I'll give you a hint on the Dereth exploration landmarks this time around. You must seek out... What was it now? Seek out... Oh, yes, seek out the landmarks. Can't fail if you just seek out the landmarks. And another stout."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Is it just me, or has the weather seemed like a particularly cruel joke lately? Things just haven't been the same since I set off that experimental weather spell... If it is my fault, I apologize. All it will take for me to fix it is another stout."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Mark my word, there's a reason those Apostates are laying low. They know every time they poke their heads out of the ether, we resourceful humans are there to smack em in their shiny fake noses. Thanks in no small part, I think, to my vigilance over this critical depot in the island's stout supply network."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Oh, is Aerfalle making a big fuss again? I guess she's done crying over her poor soul-trapped boyfriend Rytheran. I should go pay her a visit, cheer her up. She said I could always make her laugh. Or did she call me laughable? Well, same difference, really."
Ulgrim the Unpleasant tells you, "Sharia Blackmist is out and kicking around in the graveyard, eh? Surprise surprise. I was one of her instructors in university back in Ispar. She was of those girls who overdid it with the eyeshadow, wore lots of silver jewelry, and mooned over dead poets. What do you call them? Huns? Vandals?"

Known Issues

  • Have Not been able to apply ivory to new hilted weapon.
  • You must apply a hilt before tinkering, you cannot apply a hilt after tinkering as was intended. Because of the low odds of imbueing and timer on making hilts, this greatly restricts your ability to make a new hilt until this is fixed.[1]
  • The failed to enter chat channels bug persists.
  • The boss of the new Crystalline Crag quest has a regeneration rate that is higher than intended, will be fixed for next patch.
  • One version (Yellow armor with bull shield) of the Degenerate Shadow Commander is not flagged for Tier 7 loot.


  • Aerfalle's Gaze - Lowers targets [sic] skills by 45 points...
  • When speaking to Sharia Blackmist the first time: ...accepted the position of investigators [sic] of the paranormal...
  • When you give the Nexus-keyed Mana Shard to the Ghost of Galaeral, part of the chat is "The %mn chants a few words, binding your fellowship together and settling a protective enchantment over you all." -- the "%mn" should be replaced with something else.
  • Several typos in the Scrap of Paper (Mar'uun), though this might be intentional, since it is a hastily written note.
