I got tired of not being able to gate out of SSRA and other raid zones (thank you everyone who has helped me get out!), so I finally got my Worker Sledgemallet, an all/all 2HB with a proc that takes you to the Overthere.

Non-bards will probably need to do the Protect the Shipyard quest to get your faction up to amiable. (Kill Sarnak Berzerkers in OT, levels 29-33; turn in Sarnak War Braids to Captain Rottgrime in OT.) You need to be amiable to Venril Sathir. (Not sure how this affects other factions...) Once your faction is raised, turn in one jade (you can get one from from Kirem Deepfacet in PoK) to "an undead foreman" in OT and he will give you the sledgemallet. He stands near the water, loc +2385, +3305.

Bard Tactic:
Buy one jade. Head over to an undead foreman in OT. Cast your level 39 song, Solon's Bewitching Bravura, to charm him. Once he's charmed, he will be amiable to you. Hand him the jade and he will give you the hammer. That's it!

He conned dark blue to my mid-50s bard. It took a few tries to get charm to stick long enough to hand in the jade. I kept Selo's Accelerating Chorus up and kited him until charm stuck on him long enough. Once I handed it in, I ran out to the book to zone out.

If you're a bard, you might want to raise your faction some anyway. The first time I used my hammer, when I zoned in, I got killed.

Congrats Lul on the hammer.  My SK has one and it is a boon when leaving raids and tricky spots you find yourself in.  My VS faction is crap since I've helped kill the big boy a few times, however once you port to OT, there is only one baby skelly on the boat who may attack you.  Frankly, the hardest part for me now is getting out of the hold of the F&*(#@% boat.
Portaparty, Smeg, Redraw, Wontza....way too many Toons!

The only way for 'good' people like clerics, druids, paladins, wood elves, high elves, etc to do this is to charm the turn in NPC.. it has to be amiable to you and if someone else charms it, it's only indifferent to you.  The way people do this is to have some help from friends to debuff it with Malo and Tash and whatever else you can, and then use Puppet Strings to charm it.  The times that I have done it, we just got like 5 melees who wanted it and we passed the strings around.  I had to use 2 charges even after it was debuffed like crazy..

Necro, bard and enchanter can charm this mob innately so don't need a special item to do this.. just have to try a few times.

The item is not easy to get, as all but one of the mobs that drop it has a death touch ability.. which means you can't solo it (unless you count a box army as soloing).  You just have to zerg them down or they death touch everyone eventually.  Clerics and enchanters make great death touch fodder for the initial pull!  Save the rangers to keep up the DPS.

There is a lot of confusion about using illusions and grinding faction but if you're a paladin or a high elf or something like that where they are innately good, even with max faction and illusions you will not be high enough.. they'll still scowl at you.  There are some borderline cases like agnostic humans that might be able to faction grind but it's a hell of a grind.

Also if you can get into VP and get a couple of full clears (6 dragons iirc?) that will max your VS faction.

I am hoping for the puppet strings some day for Megolash
