Book Text:

Unlike most forms of armor,
wood elven armor relies not
on the strength of its
materials but instead upon
the skill and dexterity of
its wearer. Characterized
by gentle, flowing angles
and light-weight designs,
wood elven armor is shaped
to deflect blows rather
than absorb them. A
skilled wood elven veteran
knows how to position
himself and twist with
incoming strikes to
maximize the armor's
defensive abilities. For
this reason, artisans often
scribe wood elven armor
with symbols that resonate
with a warrior's natural
skill, enabling him to
detect incoming threats and
move accordingly.




This book contains designs
for the most elementary of
wood elven armor symbols.
Designed for young
warriors, these symbols are
easy to understand and
master, but offer only a
marginal degree of
protection. Ideally, wood
elven warriors will begin
with these symbols and work
their way up to more
advanced designs. You know
that you will be able to
reproduce this pattern many
times before the book
becomes worn and you must
replace it.

To create patterns for
tailoring armor templates
based on these patterns you
will need this book, a



large bottle of ink, a roll
of vellum, a quill and a
compacted backpack to hold
the patterns you will make.
You'll also need a book
binding to do the work.

I did this quest and got the text that said I received this book but it wasn't in my inventory. When I zoned out, it appeared! So if this happens to you, try zoning.

Find Calian Silverlake (+942, +660) in Kelethin and tell him the following:

You say, 'I will help'

Calian Silverlake says 'There are several items I've been meaning to collect, but have not been able to quite get around to going after. If you would be willing to go to [Crushbone], the [City of Mist], the [Acrylia Caverns], or to [Thundercrest Isles], I would happily exchange the instructions for the runes in return for your efforts.'

You say, 'I will go to Crushbone'

Task given to get your Journeyman's Book of Patterns: Scouting Crushbone
1) In Crushbone, kill 20 Orc Legionnaires
2) Loot 2 Preserved Orc Hides
3) Give Hides to Calian Silverlake
4) Kill 10 Orc Oracles
5) Loot one Illegible Scroll
6) Return the scroll to Calian
Receive Journeyman's Book.

If you ask him about the other locations above, he will give you the quest for harder books:
Crushbone =Journeyman,
City of Mist =Expert,
Acrylia Caverns =Master,
Thundercrest Isles =Grandmaster.
