|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This flags you to start the quest for the epic 1.5 if you don't have the Orb of Mastery (epic 1.0). Bantil Io`Tuv may be found standing between Pastseek Rhondarra and Loreseeker Olgrim on the floor where the Beastlord spells are sold in the library in the Plane of Knowledge at +115, +995, +96.
You say, 'Hail, Bantil Io`Tuv'
Bantil Io`Tuv says 'Greetings. I am looking for someone who has followed in the footsteps of Magi'Kot, but you do not seem to have progressed that far. There is [another way] for you to prove your control of the elements to me.'
You say, 'Another way?'
Bantil Io`Tuv says 'Well, there are 4 Elementals that have gone rogue. They escaped from their elemental planes, and I fear they may be planning some mischief. They have assumed new names, so look for a Wildfire Elemental, an Earthquake Elemental, a Tsunami Elemental, and a Monsoon Elemental. Hand them this vial when you find them, it will allow you to fight them, and also capture them once they are beaten. Return them to me so they can be handled correctly.'
Bantil hands you a Vial of Elemental Binding.
The four elementals you must kill are all level 65 and are located in the Plane of Storms (Swirling Monsoon Elemental: found at +2060, +240; quads for 1000; procs Bellowing Winds), The Grey (Trembling Earthquake Elemental: found at +1545, -960; rampages; flurries; enrages; procs Sand Quake; hits for 950), Shadeweaver's Thicket (Raging Wildfire Elemental: found at +3625, +110; procs FlameSongOfRo; hits for 780), and Siren's Grotto (Ravaging Tsunami Elemental: found at +255, -25; quads; rampages; hits for 750). You will need from one to three groups for them, depending on your group's gear level. As it says, hand the vial to the non-aggro form to get the aggro one, which you must kill and loot the essence. Return all four essences to him in order to complete the pre-quest.
Bantil Io`Tuv says 'Well done, while nowhere near the accomplishments of Magi'Kot, defeating these rogue elementals has proven you are at least worthy to follow his [Footsteps].'
You say, 'Footsteps?'
Bantil Io`Tuv says 'Magi'Kot strove to push the limits of knowledge, however few know that he was more of a researcher than an innovator. His strongest attribute was the ability to gather knowledge and derive patterns and trends from the teachings of summoners before him. Since his untimely death, I have learned the [source of his research] on elemental mastery.'
You say, 'What is the source of his research?'
Bantil Io`Tuv says 'There have been elemental masters for as long as there has been magic. There are many great magicians whose names have been lost to history. I recently learned that Magi'Kot gained access to some of these ancient teachings. This is how he learned the path to elemental mastery. His other disciples and myself thought this knowledge was gone forever, until we learned that the original tomes were stored here, in the [Great Library].'
You say, 'Great Library?'
Bantil Io`Tuv says 'There is little that has ever been written that has not, or will not, sit on the shelves here. Sadly, when I finally managed to make it here, the tomes were missing. No one seemed to know where they have gone or why. I have been searching for clues telling of where these tomes vanished to, and finally, the [pieces] are starting to come together.'
You say, 'Pieces?'
Bantil Io`Tuv says 'I am hesitant to use the word conspiracy, however the more I find, the more that seems to be the best choice. I found this note while searching for the tomes. I suspect it may lead you to finding the first of the missing tomes, sadly I do not recognize the language.'
(What is the note?)
