At the end of the previous quest, Tilbok Furrunner had more work for you to do...

You say, 'Hail, Tilbok Furrunner'

Tilbok Furrunner says 'Hello there, ______. Pleasure to meet you, I am Governor Tilbok Furrunner. I am tasked with the gathering and security of information for the Concilium Universus, the ruling council of our fine city. '

You say, 'What chambers?'

Tilbok Furrunner says 'According to these reports Seru resides in a building called the Arx Seru. It is the large complex in the center of the four Praesertum Consillium. We must take [action] now. Do not underestimate the power of Sanctus Seru for what they do they feel is right. '

Your faction standing with Validus Custodus got better.
Your faction standing with Katta Castellum Citizens got better.
Your faction standing with Magus Conlegium got better.
Your faction standing with Nathyn Illuminious got worse.
Your faction standing with Coterie of the Eternal Night got worse.
Your faction standing with Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Hand of Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Eye of Seru got worse.
Your faction standing with Hand Legionnaries got worse.
You gain party experience!!

You say, 'What kind of action?'

Tilbok Furrunner says 'You must go see Lcea. She was Tsaph Katta's closest advisor. This matter has escalated greatly and must be placed in her hands. Ask her about the [Arx Key] she will no doubt ask in your service retrieving it. I salute your service to the city and wish you well. '

You say, 'What is the Arx Key?'

Lcea Katta says 'The Arx Key, yes. I have read the compiled reports that have been brought to us and it seems to gain access to Arx Seru you need four shards, one from each Praesertum leader. When the time is ready each leader inserts their shard into the door of Arx Seru at the same time, and they are transported within the building. We need you to retrieve the four shards. When you have done so seek out Elnerick Augustleaf, and tell him that you serve Katta. His powers over the arcane are great and I believe he can form the shards into a single master key. Once you have received the Arx Key, place the seal given to you by Elnerick and your Runed earring in this jewel box and give it to me. I eagerly await your return.'

You receive Lcea's Jewel Box, a 2 slot container.

Find Elnerick Augustleaf at +135, +160.

You say, 'Hail, Elnerick Augustleaf'

Elnerick Augustleaf says 'Greetings ______. I am Magistrate Elnerick Augustleaf of Katta Castellum and the Loyalist Empire. If it is arcane knowledge that you seek you have come to an excellent place to study. Not only do we have wondrous magical resources available at the Magus Conlegium but the teachings of Tsaph Katta are well known to all of our citizens and aid in preparing the mind for the freedom of thought and mental and emotional discipline needed to become a great wizard.'

You say, 'I serve Katta.'

Elnerick Augustleaf says 'Ah, I was told you would come. I hope that you have retrieved the shards from each Praesertum Leader? Please show them to me.'

Hand the 4 shards to Elnernick.

Elnerick Augustleaf takes the four shards and places them on the table. Slow incantations and streams of mana flow from him. The shards begin to move across the table towards each other until they fuse into one. 'I have focused each shard into one single key. The magic holding it together is strong but the enchantment will fade over time. You will must use it wisely for it will deteriorate with use. Lcea has requested I give you this seal to prove your service to this city. Take the seal and the Arx Key, I hope that you can accomplish what you are about to be asked. May your service to this town never be forgotten.'

Your faction standing with Concilium Universus has been adjusted by 50.
Your faction standing with Seru has been adjusted by -5.
Your faction standing with Heart of Seru has been adjusted by -25.

You gain experience!!

You receive an Arx Key (unlimited charges of group gate into the Arx) and a Seal of Katta.

Combine the Seal of Katta and your Runed Earring of Veracity into Lcea's Jewel Box and give the jewel box back to Lcea for the 4th earring and the lead-in for the quest for the Sigil Earring of Veracity.


Lcea Katta says, 'Amazing! I had no doubt in your loyalty to Katta but I underestimated your ability to actually accomplish getting the Arx Key. Now that you have this key you must know what I ask of you next. Seru must be defeated, if there will ever be peace in Katta and truth spread among the people of Sanctus Seru. Destroy this vile betrayer, bring me his head, and your Signet Earring. Go now before they have time to retaliate your previous attacks!'
Your faction standing with Concillium Universus has been adjusted by 100.
Your faction standing with Seru has been adjusted by -10.
Your faction standing with Heart of Seru has been adjusted by -50.
You gain experience!!

Does the Arx key poof after ten uses, or does it just show zero charges?

I ask because the quest walk thru says ten charges at the end.

However, the item appears to not have any charges listed, suggesting unlimited charges.

Took a group of level 76 toons on these yesterday. It was easy enough to do, with a shaman, necro, and enchanter in the group. In most cases, just healed the pet with the aggro (necro pet).

Vantorus and Matpa were easy enough to target for the pets, both were in plain view after opening the respective doors.

Bikun and Rhugol were both off to one corner of their respective rooms. Bikun I think to immediate left and Rhugol to the immediate right. Had to do a quick dash into the room and target with an F8 and dash back out again before I could get aggro'd and banished. An Eye of Zomm or other remote viewing spell would have been handy but not necessary.

we have been farming seru of late for horses... so we decided to get another person a portal key. not sure about if we could just do the handin for the key i decided to go ahead and just turn them in without doing the first 3 earring quests and sure enough i got the key and the seal saving me a little bit of the day from having to do the first few quests for the ear.. just wanted to clarify that you can just do the turn in and get your portal key

This is incorrect, each shard may not be turned into Elnerick for a key, all 4 must be turned in to obtain the key. Also, this quest may be multiquested.
Pet classes required - Bikun immune to slow

Need a pet class, his banish proc is near instantaneous, and he doesn't summon you back. It appears to wipe aggro. Then again, I never lasted long enough to do enough damage for him to summon before I was banished.

Pet class required. I did it with the help of a shaman friend. He sent his pet in, slowed. Eventually, very carefully doted while I as a 75 pally healed the pet.

The only time we had difficulty was on Praesertum Bikun who is immune to slow and flurries a lot and enrages. I was skirting OOM, and shaman had to keep pet healed (risking aggro).

70 Beastlord and 70 Cleric - About a 30 min fight each. Cleric Easily kept the pet up and beastlord occasionaly slowed (making sure not to pull agro) and dotted.

Kill all 4 Praesertums this way.

Got the Blacksmith belt and a horse (two of the rarer drops). And the Praesertums always drop the shard so just need to kill them once for each arx key you are doing.
Key Quest
# Sep 12 2005 at 6:36 AM Rating: Decent
We finished this today..Hope this helps someone even tho Lord Seru is not one of the most popular raid mobs the key is necessary to get in to kill him. Lord Seru was not up today but we finished the key.

There are 4 npcs you have to kill. We did this one grouped at first, more joined later but wasnt nessecary. Ideal group for these is
Cleric, mage, Beastlord or 2 (?), Enchanter and any other pet class to make up the rest.
Everyone should check thier faction at the zone in, if it's bad it becomes a challenge.
Preferrably the mage should have good faction, he can then just run straight through and CoH everyone to the adjoining empty room. When you get CoH'ed with bad faction invis first or you will aggro the other mobs thru the doors and they bring a lot of friends with them. These were all mostly dark blue to us at 70th level.

If the mage doesnt have good faction you can invis your group and run through but be warned there are a couple along the way who see invisible. At that point you will need to fight your way up or at least fight a few mobs and then reinvis. If anyone in your party dies on the way you can drag them to an empty room before the port up to 4th floor and rez there.

To get to the NPC rooms run in from the zone line. ON the map there are 5 square structures in the middle section. The 4 buildings in the corners are where they are.
Run in the building, go up all the stairs. There is a sort of spiral stair then a divided stairway, you can go either way, the a short stairway to either side. Once there find the short corridor, usually the second turn once you've gone up the short stairway and run down that hall. There is a npc standing at the wall, click on the wall behind them to port up the 4th floor. Run around the floor until you come to the largest open area and a door with 2 guards standing in front of it. That room will be empty. It has a table inside and nothing else. This is where you want to CoH your group. Stay to the side of the room and away from the doors on both sides because mobs DO aggro thru the walls.
The door to the back of the room is where the named NPC is located and he is alone.
After you are buffed and ready to go, have one person who is NOT kos target him, everyone else assists for the target. Send only the pets to attack and the cleric keeps the pets healed with HoT's' during the fight. They dont hit very hard but have a lot of HP so it takes a few minutes. At 10% health have the enchanter mind wipe the mob and STOP HEALING unless you arent worried about faction hits. If you have good faction and kill one of these mobs, you are immediately kos. After the mind wipe as long as you do not heal or touch him there is no faction hit. The Mage pet should stop attacking just before the mind wipe also so he does not become Kos or the coh is hard to do from that point.
If someone in your party gets attacked and you arent kos dont heal or help them or you will take faction hits. The guards outside are a small percentage of faction compared to the named. If the named aggro's on you or a party member you will be banished to the jail, the mage can Coh you back to the room or you can gate out.
Once the mob is dead remain in the room, there are no repops for quite awhile and have the non KoS mage run to the next building and Coh everyone to there and start over again.

Repeat the same steps for the othere 3 mobs.
We got all the drops except for the horses. I think those are possibly rare. Good luck and hopefully this was helpful to someone.

Question, since this is the mini quest for the Sigil Earring of Veracity, am I correct in thinking that you DO NOT have to do this part of the quest if somebody else has already done it? You would just get ported into The Arx without having your own key. Right?

Actually, no.

The exp comes from turning in the sealed bag of the 4 consillium reports. The person who typed this up has got it kinda screwed up. "What chambers" is the line from the last earing, and they put it here so that you can get him to say the last thing he said to you. I did it that way... I said "what chambers" and then turned in my bag and the earring.

I guess at one point you could get exp... but they changed it cause people were taking advantage of it.
