An NPC looking for signatures and donations of imperial currency to rebuild Al Zahbi.
Notes: This NPC tracks how many Imperial Bronze Pieces you have donated. For every 100 Imperial Bronze Pieces you donate, he will reward you with Walahra Water. After donating 1,000 Imperial Bronze Pieces, he will reward you with Walahra Turban.
Important Note: Any Imperial Bronze Piece traded to Gajaad will strengthen Imperial defense and influence the number of NPC volunteer/Immortals that help in Besieged. Underneath an excerpt copied from Allakhazam.com. See discussion for more information on this research.
The cap on the Imperial defense value is 200, separated into two parts: hired mercenaries (120 defense) and NPC representatives (80 defense). The 10 merchant NPCs outside of Besieged account for 8 defense each. The 5 generals seem to have no effect on the Imperial defense. The Imperial defense value can be raised by donating bronzepieces to Gajaad in Al Zahbi, the Walahra Turban NPC. Gajaad will accept coins even after you've obtained a turban. Gajaad will not accept donations if the appraisal NPC, Chochoroon, is a prisoner. Every 5 bronzepieces raises the defense value by 1 point up to the 120-point mercenary cap. There seems to be no limit to the number of times any one person can trade coins for defense. Merchant NPCs affect the presence of Volunteers and Immortals in Besieged. Donations affect the presence of Qiqirns, goblins and members of the Imperial army.
Easy way to determine your server's mercenary defense value: 1. Determine the number of generals in Al Zahbi's bastion. 2. Subtract the number of missing generals from the total number of prisoners (if 0 are missing, subtract nothing). 3. Multiply the number of non-general prisoners by 8. 4. Subtract the value from step 3 from 200. 5. Subtract the Empire's current defense value from the value in step 4. 6. Multiply the value from step 5 by 5. This will give you the number of Imperial bronzepieces to trade in order to cap out the mercenary defense value. If the value of step 5 is zero, then the mercenary defense is already capped!
