Book Text:

Immortals

The immortals who can be
spoken of are not the eternal
immortals.
Their spoken names are not
their eternal names.
In namelessness they are the
beginning of heaven and
earth.
Named they are one with the
ten thousand things.
Though different in title
they spring from one source
and appear as darkness.
Darkness within darkness.
The gate to their mystery.

The immortals do not go forth
All comes to them.
They are like the ocean, the
king of ten thousand streams.
By staying beneath they are a
receptacle for all things.



They do nothing.
Yet are masters of the
universe.

Trorsmang! Be our course of
action.
Anbeal! Become the vessel to
hold our virtue.
Drinal! Be our stability,
where we can take root.
Cordan! Fill our vessel and
calm our ambitions.
Norrath! Take our husks and
breathe life into them.
We beseech you!
Guide us in your humility.

I feel confident in saying that this cannot drop off "a mature wurm". Magelo has no recorded loots from a mature wurm, and a mature wurm also spawn by the bucketloads - I've seen as many as 6 up at once - while all the other mobs listed are rare, and typically only up one at a time.

Followed the list of mobs, used my ranger Box to track/kill them. Popped a few Fabled Black Scar's back to back, they didnt drop it, ended up getting it off the "a soul devourer" like my 20th kill in.
Seriously!

I've been in Skyfire for days now, looking for this book, I've gone through the cycle more than a few times, killed every named multiple times, slaughtered dozens of mature wurms and soul devourers, went up three levels, and still no book. WTF!
Seriously!

I did, however, get my **** kicked by The Fabled Black Scar.

Off wandering wurm. Spent a good 4-5 hours killing. Probably best to stick to killing the named spawns in the cycle posted below. I had a feeling this wurm had it because he was abnormally hard to hit; way more misses than on similar mobs.

I got the book today off Black Scar. Being a Monk with no tracking, I simply ran all over Skyfire and killed hundreds of mobs, mainly going after mature wurms and of course all the named and relatively rare mobs listed here as dropping the book. Got the book after around two hours of killing. Also ran into and killed Talendor while I was there :).

The mobs that drop this are the same ones you would kill to make Felia Goldenwing spawn for the enchanter epic. Get a tracker and kill:
a soul devourer
a shadow drake
a wandering wurm
a wurm spirit
Guardian of Felia
Black Scar
Faerie of Dismay

Leave Felia up if she spawns so that an enchanter has the chance to charm and turn in (I had to camp her all day). The mobs spawn every 30 seconds to 2 minutes and are normally trackable from atop the volcano near the Burning Woods zone but can stray farther north. In the 10 hour process of trying to spawn Felia, about 5 or more of these books dropped.

Had a Druid track and kill each of the named listed... 2 straight kills of "a shadow drake" dropped Immortals both times. So "a shadow drake" does drop immortals, may have been lucky on it who knows :)

Edit: Bah! messed up subject line... meant a shadow drake lol!

Exactly 1 minute ago I got this book after camping the zone for about 2-3 hours. All I did was use my mage to hunt down the mobs and do the painfully slow progress of baby walking them in to OT zone line where I slaughtered them quickly. After going through the a souldevourer, Faerie of Dismay, a wurm spirit and Guardian of Faelia, I got it off of a wandering wurm. This was the second hardest mob to baby in because at one point it almost got away from me. Good luck folks, I still need Chardok pipe >.<

I had this drop off of Black Scar once, I shouted but no monk came so I looted it about 2 seconds before decay. I have no use for it, but it's a good book. The contents are as follows:

In this post I have endeavored to be utterly correct in every detail, including replicating the individual lines as they appear in the book rather than letting them stretch to the end of the page. If I have made any errors, please post a reply and tell me. This book deserves nothing less.

Looted it off a shadow drake today in Skyfire since there was no monk available anywhere to get it. It was the first shadow drake I had seen on track and killed him just out of curiosity as to how hard he was, what loot he dropped and the experience received. Glad I did since I have now found it to be MQable. At least the piece for some monk's epic was not lost.........Mdybls 58 Druid <Order of Concord> Tunare

Excellent. I was afraid that my monk friend would be mad once he found out that the item was no-trade (since I'm on the FV server, I thought it would be tradeable). I'm glad that all isn't lost. :D

Was there for 6 hours killing all of the mobs on the list. Right before we were about to leave we pulled a the Black Scar, first of the 6 hours, and it dropped the book. Probably just coincidence but it's worth a shot.

Clerics and Monks both need epic drops from yard trash here. They should schedule a time to do it together. Clerics will need to spend upwards of 8 hours here to get theirs.

Far as I know, this is all the mobs in Skyfire that can drop Immortals.

Soul Devourer
Lava Walker
Black Scar
a wandering wurm
a shadow drake
Guardian of Felia
a wurm spirit
Faerie of Dismay

Might be a couple others I don't know about, though.

Had 2 of them drop yesturday, one off a wurm spirit and one off a shadow drake. Both within a 45 minute time frame.
Which mob
# Dec 19 2002 at 11:20 AM Rating: Default
I`ve had it drop twice off Black Scar, a named drake. Last time was 17 Dec 2002. He`s hardly any more difficult than the other drakes, all spells landed, hp seemed to be nothing extraordinary.

I had one of these drop off a lava walker. It seems that most of the higher level mobs in Skyfire can drop it. - Alondin .
