I was trying to be polite and not wipe out Najena where I noticed a couple of level 15-20s there. Figured I'd give Tiplo the Gardener a try instead. He dropped it off first kill.

got shovel and stein in Feerrott

I took my 52 druid and 20 mage to Feerrott last night to get the focus items for my mage. There where alligators (called "an alligator") on track but they weren't generally near the temple. They were usually on the druid ring side of the river. At first I thought I might be killing the wrong alligators but then one dropped "a shovel". In a few hours they had dropped 2 shovels, a stein, a mage mastery page and a ring. Just letting people know the "an alligator" in Feerrott stills drops the mage focus items though they are often closer to druid ring than the temple.

I first Mages camped this site and within 5 minutes had two broom. Then for the next week with an average of 1 hour a day I turned all the rest of the focus items. My question is where do you find FIre giants toes since I was told that fire giants have been remove from the game

Fire giants are still in sol b, just outside naggy's lair. Also, the named cyclops in OOT (Gornit) drops them too.

The new listing says this drops off the scaled doggies in Chardok...wrong!

This drops from Magicians and Goblin Magicians in Najena, and the alligators outside Cazic Thule.

I sold one...

I was camping the Tae Ew Lizards outside Cazic Thule, and one of these dropped. I probably spent a total for 8 or 10 hours camping there, looking for a Shaman quest item, but only one shovel dropped.

I sold it in the bazaar for 400pp I think.

Do them as soon as you can! With PoP, it is incredibly easy to get to Lavastorm (via Neriak book). I waited until 8th level so I could cast Invis, then just ran to the Temple, and turned in the stuff to Vira. Check the bazaar for the other items, sicne all of the ingredients are droppable. Boom -- yellow pets summoned just for you. Hope this helps!

Having these focus items does NOT raise pet lvl in anyway. It merely adds some HP and stats

yes, you can do the differant focus item quests at differant time, you don't have to do them all at once, since they are 4 differant quests =). That answer the question?

Mage focus items
# Jun 04 2001 at 2:32 AM Rating: Good
This quest starts in The Temple of Solusek Ro through Lavastorm. You have to go and find an NPC named Vira. She will give the quests for all four mage focus items. You will need the following: BROOM; star ruby, griffon feather (karana), broom (najena mage), and cyclops toes. SHOVEL; ruby, gargoyle eye (mistmore), shovel (najena mage), and hill giant toes (EK). TORCH; fire emerald, fire drake skin (lavastorm), torch (najena mage), and fire giant toes. STEIN; sapphire, mermaid scale (OOT, an alluring siren), stein (najena mage), and ice giant toes.

For most of the items you can wait by the zones and ask people if they will give them to you. Let htem know it's for a mage quest and they are usually happy to donate the items. Especially in Najena. The gems can be *VERY* expensive so it's best to ask friends and guildmates if they have looted any of them and are willing to help you out. IF not, you had better start saving your copper peices. Well, I hope that this has helped some people. Good luck and be safe!

You can also get the shovel, broom, stein, and torch off of gators in The Lost Temple of Cazic-Thule.

You can get the giant toes you need by going to the OOT and kill Gornit. He is a hill giant that randomly drops all of the toe types you need.

I would also like to say that all the Focus items do work before lvl 34. I had my first one (the Stein of Ulissa) by lvl 16. To see if it worked on pre lvl 34 pets I had myself and a lvl 17 mage summon pets that were even cons to me. I summoned mine with the Stein of Ulissa and he didn't. Then we would have the pets duel. We did this 5 times. My pet won every fight with about 25% or more of his hit points left.

I would reccomend getting them as so as you can. To get these focus item early on in your magician's career is fairly simple. Money to buy the gems will be the hardest part. To obtain your shovel, broom, stein, and torch go to Cazic-Thule. The gator pit is camped with some regulaity by poeple who are trying to gain exp. Since the items are lore and don't sell for much, most people will allow you to loot the gators for free. You can also get your giant toes this way just ask the guy camping Gornit if you can get some toes most people will give them to you for free as well, since the toes don't stack and don't sell at a high price to vendors. The rest of the items drop off of pretty low lvl mobs or you can buy from vendors. Just go check the vendors in the zone where the mob that drops the item spawns and usally one of them has it for sale because an other player has sold it to them.

Hope this helps all you young mages.

One of my magician guild members is working on this quest and I was just wondering how much it could cost to buy a shovel from another player on the Karana server???

Going into the depths of Najena isnt exactly going to be easy but if we cant afford to buy the shovel then thats what we will have to do.

Sometimes if you just wait in the Najena zone, you can get most of the items for free if you just tell them its for a mage focus item, you can get the shovel/torch/etc for free =). They are ussually more than happy to donate

Well, dont know about anyone else but I have never seen a goblin in Najena. What I do know though is that the Magician focus items (the torch, the stien, the broom and the shovel) drop from the Dark-Elf Magicians in Najena. I dont know how rare these are but a group of us went and killed every Magician we could find in Najena, camping the Magicians Near Rathyl's room for over four hours. All we got was the Stien, we managed to buy the Torch while we where there. All in all we spent nearly five hours and got just one of these focus items to drop.

I'm sorry, who said quests were supposed to be easy? NO ONE. and yes, quite often they take a lot of time to complete. I spent overe 2 days getting 2 golden stud earrings on the Lucia's dress quest in Queynos. And these items are some of the most important items a Mage can have in his possession. They shouldn't be quick and easy.

It is a tradable item found in Najena. It and the other focus items can be found on the Goblins there. It does not identify as a shovel of earth as stated above.

Wrong. None of these items, the shovel, broom, stein or torch identify by the special name for them if you right click and hold. But pick the item up, and while holding it, cast the Identify spell. And people say that spell doesn't work. It surely does on these items.

It is NOT "no drop" and can be traded. Rare though. I got real lucky and came upon it by accident.
