After completing Aid Eino's escort quest in the Plane of Nightmare and have the Tiny Gold Fist in your inventory, return to him at the top of the library in the Plane of Knowledge.

You say, 'Hail, Aid Eino'

Aid Eino says, 'Why hello ______! It is good to see you again after our adventure in the Plane of Nightmare. Know that you have shown your worth to both Kerasha and myself. Should you ever need anything feel free to call upon us. May Quellious guide your path in the Planes!'

Now turn to Councilwoman Kerasha.

You say, 'Hail, Councilwoman Kerasha'

Councilwoman Kerasha says, 'Greetings ______! It pleases me very much that you were able to help Eino out in his time of need.' Councilwoman Kerasha glances at Eino, 'Tunare only knows what I would do without him at my side. There is another matter at hand that has come to the attention of the council that is beyond even our combined power and requires the aid of a powerful alliance. Would you be willing to aid Tanaan?'

You say, 'I would be willing to aid Tanaan.'

Councilwoman Kerasha says, 'A rift in this plane at the point of harmony upon which the city of Tanaan is built is crumbling. The other council members do not see it happening for they lack the sight that I possess. Granted it will take time but it is something that must be set to right or our home will fall to waste among the tides of the Planes.' Councilwoman Kerasha's body grows rigid. 'I did not spend my life in defense of this city to watch it crumble to dust! The way to repair the breach is difficult but I feel Tunare will grant me the strength once I have the four essences of power in my grasp.'

You say, 'What essences of power?'

Councilwoman Kerasha says, 'The powers that watch over the four elemental planes all guard their respective essence of power. You must defeat each of them in turn and place them all within this sacred bowl. Once I have the combined power of the planes I can begin the ceremony and set the foundation of the city to rights. Thank you for your offer to assist me ______.'

You receive a Sacred Bowl, a 4-slot container.

You now need to kill the Elemental gods or their avatars: Fennin Ro, the Tyrant of Fire; Xegony the Queen of Air; Coirnav the Avatar of Water; and Avatar of Earth. Each can rarely drop Essences of their respective plane - Fire, Air, Water and Earth (NOTE: there is an Essence of Mud that still drops in the Earthen Badlands which is not the Essence required for this quest). Once you've gathered all four essences, combine them within the sacred bowl to craft a Power of the Planes, and return this to Councilwoman Kerasha.

Councilwoman Kerasha takes the Power from you and hands it to Aid Eino. 'Thank you ______. The energy I must expend to perform such a task is days in the gathering. The city of Tanaan is forever in your debt. Take this, it is but a small token of the gratitude of the city. If it does not suit you, return it to me and I shall give you another reward.'
You gain experience!!

There are several rewards Kerasha can hand you: 1. Jade Hoop of Speed, 2. Cord of Invigoration, 3. Mace of the Ancients, 4. Ring of Farsight, 5. Frizznik's Endless Coin Purse. You can simply cycle through them until you get the one you wish to keep. You can go back at any time and exchange it for another depending on your wants and desires.

It's worth noting that if you complete the pre-quest escort in Plane of Nightmare, but delete the Tiny Gold Fist reward (because it's not very good), you will not get the correct dialogue for this quest and will not be able to proceed. By using a Token of Reclamation and getting the Tiny Gold Fist back, I was able to finish this quest. Alternatively, you would need to do the escort again to regain the reward.

Cool! The sentence would make more sense if it said "Once you complete" instead of "after completing" now that you added the part about the Tiny Gold Fist.

I just finished this quest for a second time last night so it can be repeated , I now have the Mace and the Coin Purse. The mace procs Skelies holding the Seru's sword. I also added the pet aug from the Guk Ldon Raid "Ritualist of Hate" ....the aug is called "Shard of Eternal Pain". The Guk aug procs Skelies holding a shield and a bad *** looking blunt weapon. It a lot of fun to play with when I hit the ranger AA Imbued Ferocity. It causes your weapons to proc for 12 seconds straight. It looks kind of cool.

Here is an updated answer to this question. Yes the quest is repeatable BUT this is what I found out. Lets say you completed the quest and took the jade hoop of speed , now you want to complete the quest for the second time .... here is where you need to pay attention . The rewards are handed down from the npc in order.
1st reward is Jade Hoop of Speed
2nd reward is Cord of Invigoration
3rd Reward is Mace of the Ancients
4th Reward is ring of farsight
5th reward is the coin purse.

Why is this important ??? Because if you don't take the first reward and exchange it for one of the others .. the next time you try to complete this quest for the second time you will get the first reward again WHICH IS LORE and the NPC WILL EAT YOUR TURN IN... This happened to me , I petitioned and GM wouldn't return my power of the planes to do over. So 4 gods had to be killed all over again to do over.

ALSO a Side note This Quest CAN be completed by a Level 1 Character. Thanks

Killed all 4 gods got 4 essences.

Did the Aid Eino task in Nightmare.

Came back to pok, hailed Eino, then hailed Kerasha, everything was going fine until I say 'I would be willing to aid Tanaan' or also tried saying 'What essences of power?' to get a bowl but either of those phrases gets me this response and no bowl:

Councilwoman Kerasha says 'I am sorry (name), I see you are willing to help but you lack the fortitude to endure the deep planes.'

What does this mean, what am I missing and/or how do I get the bowl?

I am level 72.

I had the same problem; the councilwoman said that I didn't have the fortitude to enter the deep planes. I figured that I needed more planar access so I started to finish up the elemental access arc parts I was missing, and it was only when I completely finished elemental access did she give me the bowl. The elemental access requirement is rather steep in this era, and the quest is probably only worth doing if you either already fulfill that requirement or want the mace; there is a 90% coin reduction bag from GoD that's much easier to do.
Help please.

They should remove the elemental flag from this quest since they removed from the game. I planned on doing it but I am not going to go back thru all that confusing flagging just to do the quest.

Essences have to be combined in the bowl and then handed in, so no, they can't be MQ'd

Thanks for the info.


I think I saw someone post that the PoP Gods drop these every time now.

That is NOT the case, we killed Cornaiv last night and he did not drop it. Too bad, cause that was one that I needed and we will prolly never do that kill again.

I just completed this on Druzzil. Drop rate for essences went like this:

fennin, 6th kill
xegony, 3rd kill
rathe, 3rd kill
coirnav, 3rd kill

Not a bad ratio and I consider myself very lucky.

Thanks to my guild for it's excellent work getting to this point.

I was VERY lucky in my drops, Fennin 3rd, Coirnav 1st, Xeagony 1st, Rathe 1st.

Was lucky enough to get this on the "tougher" gods on my first try. Since the time backflags have ben introduced most guilds only kill gods once...i consider myself exrtremely lucky to get this quest done...I use the coin purse personally but used the haste ear for a good while.

Before i ask my question , I know how hard it would be to get all of the drops to get it any of the items.

Question: Can you do this quest more than once? was just curious the items are nodrop lore but each has a differant name so is it possible to own all the items( that is if you were lucky enough to even own one )

Just wanted to see if i could get confirmation that you can go back at ANY time and get the item you want or desire that moment. Just don't want to lose anything by being stupid!

It's been said a few times before on this page, but I'm hoping this will help clear things up anyway. The four pieces to the Time key are acquired by hailing the Planar Projection (no, it's not called that, but that's what it is) that spawns on their respective gods' deaths. The Time key pieces are named Globe of Dancing Flame, Amorphous Cloud of Air, Sphere of Coalesced Water, and Mound of Living Stone. They are combined or turned in or something (I'm not there yet, only EP god I've made my ***** is FRo. =P) to create the Quintessence of Elements. This is the key to Time.

Now, the items used for this quest are dropped from the gods (uncommon to rare) and are named Essence of Fire, Essence of Air, Essence of Water, and Essence of Earth. Two different sets of items, two different set of gods.

I dont know why everyone on earth keeps saying that blahblah by the time you kill all 4 ep gods your in time anyway and these drops suck... How many guilds do you know of that every single member has uber gear in all slots? It just doesnt happen. Unless you have been in your guild for a good while, you're going to have crappy spots still to fill up. And any item can be useful for that. I cant count how many players I've seen with 1/2 elemental drops or god drops yet still wear say ... Solstice Earring heh. Drops are always good for someone. Newcomers to a guild especially wont have uber gear. My mage was PoTime flagged and I still wore crap in 10 slots or so. It takes a while to build dkp and spend it.
#CodeguruX, Posted: Jun 23 2004 at 3:10 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) A novelty coin purse, a few decent EP god drop type things and an all/all pet proc weapon. I believe essences should drop every time because the fact you need to kill all 4 EP gods just to get to these items is punishment enough. I mean jeez after you kill all 4 you are time level and this stuff is pretty much meaningless...
#CodeguruX, Posted: Jun 28 2004 at 3:38 PM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Ok I change my mind. 10 hp regen belt, distance ring, and pet toy. All worthy of me. :p Fire and water down, air and earth to go...

sounds like people are confused, these essences arent recieved from hails, they are droppped on their bodies like the other loot, they do not always drop, which makes it harder to get all four essence DROPS from each of the elemental gods. Hope this clears things up =)
might help the confusion

The item(s)the quest is asking for is a drop from the according Elemental God...

The item(s)(key peices)you need for Time is givin when you hail the "projection" after you kill the according Elemental God like for a flag you hail it gives you the key peice( rather then a flag)...

2 diffrent things hope that helps.

kinda confusing

Its a bit confusing to me. It sounds like the Essence of Air (Fire, Water, etc.) is the name of the elemental you hail that spawns after killing Xegony, FR, etc., as well as being the name of a rare drop from those same mobs.
#Vorrhees, Posted: Feb 13 2004 at 7:39 AM, Rating: Sub-Default, (Expand Post) Is this quest just a way to get rid of the Key to Time after you add the key to keyring? or is this the key to time?

Can you use your time key and still be able to enter the PoT or do you have to Re collect all the eesences from Fennin, Xeg, RC, Cor?

These are not the pieces for the Time key. Those are recieved when hailing the projection after killing the gods.

However, these are Essences that drop somewhat uncommonly from the gods as loot. So no you dont use Time key for this, and no doing this quest does not destroy your Time key.

Anyone have info on the drop rate of these essences? Do they drop every kill or would someone have to kill these gods multiple times to have a 'chance' for one of the said essences to drop?
Asking becuase I'm in an up and coming elemental guild and have had my sights set on the cord of invigoration for some time now. Aquiring all 4 will nto be a problem soon *if* they drop everytime, if not rather not waste dkp on possibly only seeing 2 of the 4 i need if they seem to be rare.

Count yourself lucky if you see one of these pieces drop every 10 kills. The drops are too rare for this quest to be useful.

Heh, I guess I got lucky then. Killed fenning a bunch of times and finally I got one that dropped. Next raid we killed Corniav, Water essence dropped. Next Air raid we tried and won, Wind essence dropped. One more to go. :p

This would be the best item to have in game... use pet proc when doing faction/farming, swap out to ring before raid, and switch to belt when soloing. After you get all slots with better gear, get a 90% coin reduction bag with 10 giant slots.
Awesome rewards

This quest is just UBER. I mean you can play around with each item and when you get bored with it just trade it in for a dif one. I myself would mess around with the pet proc one and the ring and belt then prolly go with the earring for keeps until I get an upgrade, but all are great.

nope those are living fragments of *insert element here* these drop only off Xegony, Fennin, Coirnav, Avatar of Earth, So your guild has to be time enabled to get these.
