|Quest Started By:||Description:|
NOTE: A patch on April 22, 2015, added a work-around to obtain bottleneck items from Phinigel Autropos (Kedge Keep), Gorenaire (Dreadlands), and Talendor (Skyfire Mountains), including the Torn Books required in this quest.
- In Kedge Keep, a harbinger of the seas can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Phinigel Autropos.
- In Dreadlands, a harbinger of frost can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Gorenaire.
- In Skyfire Mountains, a harbinger of flame can help adventurers get their epic 1.0 pieces that would normally drop from Talendor.
Find someone to port you to the Plane of Sky. Remember that all buffs are wiped when zoning in. Hand a friend at least 500 pp 1 cp. Have your friend buy a Veeshan's Key from the Keymaster on the first island. Your friend must then head to the northern teleportation dish on that island, hold the key on his cursor, and click the dish to enter the quest room. Have your friend chat with Dason Goldblade:
You say, 'Hail, Dason Goldblade'
Dason Goldblade says 'Greetings, ______. Are you pure of heart and soul?'
You say, 'I am pure of heart and soul.'
Dason Goldblade says 'Then choose. Do you wish your purity to be tested by Gregori or Dirkog?'
You say, 'I wish to be tested by Dirkog.'
Dason Goldblade says 'Dirkog is a gruff one, but his faith is what all paladins should strive to equal. Read this book and return it to me. After you have done so, I shall summon Dirkog to test you.'
You receive a book called Walk with Evil, which reads:
When you're done, have your friend hand it back to Dason. Dason despawns and Dirkog Steelhand spawns.
Dason Goldblade says 'Farewell.'
Dirkog Steelhand says 'May faith guide you always.'
Dason Goldblade says 'Farewell.'
You say, 'Hail, Dirkog Steelhand'
Dirkog Steelhand says 'Leave me be, ye orc kissin' son o' Innoruuk!'
You say, 'I am not a son of Innoruuk.'
Dirkog Steelhand says 'Eh? Ye say that ye ain't one o' the cursed dark elf dogs? Well then, laddie, are ye ready to get started or are ye here fer somethin' else??'
You say, 'I am here for the holy swords.'
What is the in-game text or lore that leads you to say this?
Dirkog Steelhand says 'Eh, lad? What was that? Ye wish to hear o' holy swords? Well, lad, I ain't the one ye be needin' t' talk to!'
You say, 'Who do I need to talk to?'
Dirkog Steelhand says 'A follower o' the water god he be, an' one o' the most powerful holy knights e'er to walk Norrath. His name be Inte Akera, an' he kin tell ye what ye be wantin' t' know.'
You say, 'Where is Inte Akera?'
Dirkog Steelhand says 'Ah, I see ye wish t' speak with him! Why didn't ye say that earlier, laddie? It would've saved ye some trouble! If ye wish to speak with him, ye must donate some spare change t' me ale.. er, t' me holy crusade fund! Well, lad, what d' ye say?'
You say, 'How much should I donate?'
Dirkog Steelhand says 'Eh? Oh, 500 platinum will be plenty, laddie!'
Have your friend hand him 500 pp.
Dirkog Steelhand says 'Thank ye, laddie! He's awaitin ya up top!'
Inte Akera immediately spawns in the windmill on the fourth island (/loc?), commonly known as the Horse Island, Griffon Island, or Pegasus Island. He will stay up for about five minutes before despawning if no one has hailed him, so it's best for you to get yourself there while your friend does the hand-ins and dialogues.
You say, 'Hail, Inte Akera'
Inte Akera says 'Greetings, ______. I am Inte Akera. I have retired to the Plane of Sky after a long life toiling on Norrath's soil. Have you retreated here as well, or are you merely visiting?'
You say, 'What toil?'
Inte Akera says 'Long ago, before I came to this plane, I fought in the name of Prexus against all the evils that plagued Norrath. In that time, I have done everything one can do. I have fought for the causes of good. I gained the esteem of kings and lords. The sword I hold is but one example of the treasures I have sought and won. I have accomplished all that I can, have all that I desire. My toil is done and now I sit among the clouds in peace, occasionally blessing those who seek it and are found worthy.'
You say, 'I seek your blessing.'
Inte Akera says 'Many come seeking my blessings. No matter how minor the blessing they ask, all must prove that they embody the qualities of a paladin before I bless them.'
You say, 'How can I prove myself?'
Response here may be broken, need confirmation either way.
Inte Akera says 'I believe the two most important qualities of a paladin are nobility and sacrifice. Hand me an item of yours that proves you understand what nobility and sacrifice are. Be warned however, if I do not think as you do, I will simply accept the item as a gift, and give you no blessing.'
Inte Akera says 'No.. I was unable to kill my most hated foe, Miragul. The head of this wretched, foul necromancer is forever out of the reach of justice. It would be worth restoring him to his former state for the chance to take his head as a trophy.'
You say, 'Why were you unable to kill Miragul?'
Inte Akera says 'You think you can succeed where I cannot? Perhaps you can noble one.. Bring me the head of Miragul, his robe and hand me back the two blessings I gave you, and in return I shall bequeath to you this sword I carry. Good luck my friend.'
Need dialogues or game lore used to determine what quest items are required. We'll skip ahead here for convenience.
WORK IN PROGRESS, TO BE CONTINUED...
Old text is below.
Based upon the log with Inte Akera, these are the items you need for the fiery avenger. Given the difficulty of traveling within the Plane of Sky, it is recommended that you get the head and robe of Miragul, Ghoulbane and Soulfire beforehand.
Note: To get the blessings, you need to talk to Inte Akera. He is located on the Fourth Island in the Plane of Sky. You first need to talk to Dason Goldblade. Tell him, "I wish to be tested by Dirkog." Dason will hand you a book; read it if you wish. Return the book to him and he will despawn; Dirkog Steelhand will spawn in his place. Give Dirkog 500pp to cause Inte Akera to spawn. Inte Akera can despawn quickly, so you should be at the island and have a friend hand Dirkog the money so that you don't lose the spawn.
1) The Blessing of Nobility: You need a high faction with Akera, who is a Deepwater Knight. Give him Soulfire to receive Inte's First Blessing, the blessing of nobility. The details on getting Soulfire are here.
2) The Blessing of Sacrifice: You need a high faction with Akera, who is a Deepwater. Give him Ghoulbane to receive Inte's Second Blessing, the blessing of sacrifice.
3) and 4) The Head and Robe of Miragul: First, you want a Burnt Book and a Frost Book. You can get the Burnt Book off Lord Nagafen, Severilous, Talendor, or Melalafen. The Frost Book can be looted off Lady Vox, Gorenaire, or Faydedar.
Take the Frost Book and Burnt Book to Rysva To`Biath, the bartender in the Blind Fish Tavern in Neriak at +10, -850, along with 1000pp. She will combine them into the Book of Scale.
Alternatively, you can take the 1000pp, Frost Book, and Burnt Book to Rineval Talyas, a Human Enchantress near a small supply camp outside the walls of Northern Qeynos and get the same result.
You say, 'Hail, Rineval Talyas'
Rineval Talyas says 'Hello, _____.'
You say, 'I seek a scribe.'
Rineval Talyas looks at you strangely. 'Who told you this?'
You say, 'Karn told me.'
(Karn who? Dialogues and full name needed.)
Rineval Talyas says 'I see. If a scribe is what you seek, then bring me the torn books of fire and ice. A donation of 1000 platinum is needed as well. The donation will be offered as a blessing to the gods.''
Find Oracle of K`Arnon in the Ocean of Tears at -28.99, -6737.39, -197.58 post-revamp.
You say, 'Hail, Oracle of K`Arnon'
Oracle of K`Arnon says 'Greetings, ______, I am the Oracle of K'Arnon. Do you quest for [knowledge] yourself, or do you offer that which I [seek]?
You say, 'What knowledge?'
Oracle of K`Arnon says 'I have lived long and have insight into many matters, yet I despise charity. To learn from me, you must first bring me that which I [seek].
You say, 'What do you seek?'
Oracle of K`Arnon says 'I seek knowledge, which is superior to all things. And no knowledge is greater than that which is contained within the [Tome of Ages].
You say, 'What is the Tome of Ages?'
Oracle of K`Arnon says 'The Tome of Ages has been compiled over the millennia by the Scribes of [Dal]. It was divided into seven distinct books by the scribes to keep the knowledge from one such as me. That said, with aid, I shall unite these books and the Tome of Ages shall be mine.
You say, 'Who are the Dal?'
Oracle of K`Arnon says 'They were elves once, but now are Teir'Dal, and as evil as they are wise. Many tomes have they written, but none greater than the Tome of Ages.
You say, 'What are the books?'
Oracle of K`Arnon says 'The seven Books that make up the Tome of Ages are those of Enlightenment, Scale, Turmoil, Monuments, Elders, Blood, and the Lost Book. Each of these great books is an important chapter in the history of Norrath. If ever you find one of these books, bring it to me.
You say, 'What about the Book of Scale?'
Oracle of K`Arnon says 'Ah, the Book of Scale.. It would be wondrous indeed if you could recover the Book of Scale for me. If you do manage to procure the Book of Scale, I will gladly part with an artifact of my own that may be of interest to you.'
Hand in the Book of Scale.
Oracle of K`Arnon says 'Unbelievable! The legendary Book of Scale is mine! Please, take this as a small token of my thanks. I warn you however, if you ever manage to join the corporeal body to the evil that resides within, you will rue the day.'
He will give you back an artifact called Miragul's Philactery (dialogues needed). You must then head to the Everfrost caves, which you get to by going through a hole in the ice at the river (enduring breath is very useful for this trip). Get an enchanter to charm the Lich and then hand him the Phylactery (charming may not be required - lich will be KoS but you can still do the hand-in). This will spawn the true Miragul, a 53+ necromancer who is as hard to kill as a dragon, so make sure you have lots of friends with you. When you kill him, he drops the robe and his head.
Turn in these four items for the Fiery Avenger.*
*at this point we'll let Gbaji's summation of this quest roll:
Ultimately, you need four items to start: The burnt book, the frost book, ghoulbane, and soulfire. Assuming you have them all, the rest is just turn in's (more or less). But each is transformed in the following ways:
1. Take the burnt and frost books plus 1000 pp to Rineval Talyas and receive the Book of Scale.
2. Turn the Book of Scale in to the Oracle in Ocean of Tears to get Miragul's Phylactery.
3. Turn the Phylactery in to Miragul's Lich to spawn the real Miragul. Kill him and get his head and robe.
So at this point, you've taken two items and turned them into two other items.
4. Go to the PoSky and spawn Inte Akera (have some one else spawn him while you wait in the windmill on pegasus island).
5. Hand him ghoulbane (and only ghoulbane). Receive a blessing (no clue which one, and honestly doesn't matter).
6. Hand him soulfire (and only soulfire). Receive the other blessing.
So at this point, you've turned those two items into yet two other items.
7. You should now have 4 items again: 2 blessings from Inte Akera, the head of Miragul, and the robe of Miragul. Hand him those four items (all at once) and receive your Fiery Avenge
Need all dialogs, faction hits if any, /loc of quest mobs, missing quest items, any other relevant quest information.
