Once you get your Staff of Elemental Essence, you can start Epic 2.0, which is intented for high-end raiding guilds. Minimum level for Epic 2.0 is most likely 70, but as of now it's at least 69, the level you need to zone into Riftseekers.

It starts with Iilivina, in Dranik's Scar at -570, -260.


You say, 'Hail, Iilivina'

Iilivina says 'The magic here is quite unique. I am thrilled I've had the opportunity to study it.'

Hand Iilivina your Staff of Elemental Essence. She'll hand it back, and continue:

Iilivina says 'My goodness, I did not realize you were the one [Bantil] sent to me! This is truly amazing! I was shocked when Magi'Kot's dream had been realized. I never thought it would be surpassed. My, so much focused elemental energy. This is truly amazing. You have accomplished quite a feat.'

You say, 'Bantil?'

Iilivina says 'Yes, Bantil told me you would be coming. Perhaps we can help each other. There are two tribes of elemental beings here. They have an unprecedented ability to channel elemental energy. I have yet to see one with my own eyes, but they may just contain [power] that will help you unleash the staff's true power.'

You say, 'What power?'

Iilivina says 'They use the elements in a way we have yet to understand. I suspect something in their essence that allows them to tap into the elements in a different manner than we understand. If my suspicions are true, these creatures should leave behind a small portion of their essence, when their spirits leave their bodies. If you find anything like that, bring it to me. They may be rather small, so bring me two from each type for good measure.'

Go to Riftseekers' Sanctum. You will need two each of Pyrilen and Gelidran Essences. Any Pyrilen and Gelidran mobs in the zone drop them.

Return to Iilivina with these items.

Iilivina grinds the small crystals into a fine powder, 'This is like nothing I have ever seen. It will take some time for me to analyze this, but thank you. I have more here than I will need. Take this pouch to Bantil, along with this note. If he doesn't know how this will help you, he may know someone who does.'

Receive Pouch of Powdered Riftseeker Essence and Note from Iilivina.

Find Bantil Io`Tuv in the Plane of Knowledge on the fourth floor of the Library, at 115, 980, 95.

Bantil Io`Tuv unrolls the note and reads it to himself, 'Interesting. Well, I'm not sure I can do anything with this, but if you take this to Transon in Twilight sea, he may be able to understand it a little better.'

Receive Small Pouch of Riftseeker Essence. Take this to Vornol Transon in the Twilight Sea.

Vornol Transon furrows his brow for a little bit as he mixes the powder in a small flask. 'This is most intriguing. There is nothing here that represents elemental magic as we understand it. These beings seem to use different means to channel their power. Let's see. . . Chaos represents fire, Order corresponds to Water, Air is channeled by Spirit, and. . . hmmm. . . Yes! There it is! Earth ties with Body. There you are, Chaos, Order, Spirit, and Body, those are the primal elements, and I suspect they are the key to unlocking the full potential of your new staff there. Which is quite nice if I do say so myself. If you find essences of the Primal elements you may want to speak with Bantil again. He should have some insight on how to complete your journey. Iilivina has been in Discord long enough, she may have some insight as to where these essences can be located.

Return to Iilivina in Dranik's Scar and hail her.

Iilivina says, 'Hello again. So, you are looking for the Primal Elemental essences? That has a nice ring to it Transon has always had a penchant for the dramatic. I do not believe that you will find these beings in Discord however, if they exist at all. I do believe that your staff will resonate when you approach the creatures, so travel the world you know. Elementals tend to gravitate to areas that reflect their element best, I don't see why the [Primals] would behave any differently.'

You say, 'What primals?'

Iilivina says, 'Were I to venture a guess, I'd say look for Chaos near the ruins of a fallen empire, as order would tend to oppose chaos, I would look for the Order elemental near the ranks of a well regimented army, probably an ancient army, it is a creature of prestige. The Spirit elemental would find someplace where death and decay have a strong foothold. The Body Elemental may be the most elusive, as there is life everywhere. I would assume that its strong ties with this realm would pull it to a place where there are Muramites. When you find them, bring their remains to me and I'll see what else needs to be done.'

Take a few groups to the southern section of Ferubi. Take the path you would use to get to Packmaster Skoziat, but instead of heading to him, go west to the square feeding room. The Body Elemental will spawn once you get into a certain range. It hits for ~1000, flurries, and casts the spells Visions of Pain (a rather ugly DoT) and Chaos Affliction. Kill it, and loot the Element of Body off its corpse.

Take a raid to the spires in the Dreadlands, where the Chaos Elemental will spawn. It hits for ~2800 and procs the charm spell Chaos Epidemic. It also AEs Chaos Affliction. Kill it and loot the Element of Chaos. A chest spawns following its death.

Take a few groups to the northwestern-most room (in the green tunnel) of Carprin's area in the Crypt of Decay. Here, the Spirit Elemental will spawn. It hits for about 1000 and procs the spell Spiritual Possession, a single-target charm. Kill it and loot the Element of Spirit.

Take a raid to the southwestern-most corner of the Halls of Honor (-2000, -1000), where the Order Elemental will spawn. It hits for ~3000, flurries, rampages, and casts the spell Cursed Keeper's Drain. Kill it and loot the Element of Order.

Return to Iilivina in Dranik's Scar and turn in the four elements.

Iilivina says, 'You work so fast! Amazing work you have done.' She looks at the 4 essences for a moment, 'Yes, these can probably be used to bind to your staff, but we'll need some sort of binding. Something that can be used to keep large amounts of energy bound together. I have no idea where you'd find such a thing, but if you do bring it to Bantil with your staff, and he'll be able to finish your journey.'

The 'something' she speaks of is a globe of discordant energy from the Asylum of Anguish.

Bring the globe and Staff of Elemental Essence to Bantil Io`Tuv in the Plane of Knowledge to receive your epic 2.0: Focus of Primal Elements. You also receive 10 AAs.

Completed Oct 28, 2013 on the Povar server. Started this morning with the 1.5 pre quest and finished the 2.0 this afternoon.

The hardest part with out a doubt was the Ice Burrower Meat in WW for the 1.5, the trick i learned there is that mastodons, velium hounds, and the bron~(rhino thingys) are all PHs from the Ice Burrowers, once i started clearing them finished up that part faster.

If your confused about something you can hit up Novacayn on Povar.

I was not able to get the elementals to spawn in any of the zones. I went back and re-hailed Iilivina to be sure I was on the right step. Then, it finally occurred to me to try wielding my 1.5. Sure enough, they started spawning. So, make sure you have your 1.5 equipped!

Don't need it equipped. Just did 1.5 and 2.0 today, took me roughly 8 total for both epics. Didn't wield 1.5 at all in any point of the 2.0

Can start the dialogues at level 60, but since the first items you need to recover come from RSS which you need to be level 69 to enter...

Just finished at 69, so can all be done once you can enter Riftseekers. If they ever lower the requirements for the zone then it should be completable even sooner.

Also, The last 4 fights before needing the globe can done in any order. There was no reason to think not to, but it also wasn't explicitly stated.

I cannot get the element of body to spawn, I get the message that my staff begins to glow, but no mob. Have zoned in and out, have logged out and then logged back in....nothing. I have had no problems getting the others to spawn, but no luck in Ferubi. Any ideas???

At exactly what point in the quest did this happen, and what was the last step you did that was successful? What level are you? You can do some parts of some 2.0s before 70, but most of the NPCs won't deal with you till 70 for most of the 2.0s. Do you have your 1.5, and your 1.0 or 1.5 prequest reward(s)?

The 1.5 and 2.0 epics are character flagged driven, so if you skipped a step, deleted something you needed, etc., it may be what's causing the problem, along with low level. Some more details, would greatly improve the ability to determine what's going on, if you missed something, or if the quest is bugged for you or what not.

yes, the epic 2.5 is the addition of the invisible augment to the 2.0, search for "epic"....beyond that, b*tch at Sony for not including epic quests in their expansions.

With the 4 elementals, they despawn after 10-15ish minutes. BUT, you can log out and log back in and they'll spawn again.

loc for Iilivina in Dranik's Scar is -572 -258.

after turning in Pyrilen and Gelidran essences:
Iilivina grinds the crystals into a fine powder, 'This is like nothing i have ever seen. It will take some time for me to analyze this, but thank you. I have more here than i will need. Take this pouch to Bantil, along with this note. If he doesn't know how this will help you, he may know someone who does.'

recieve:
Note fron Iilivina
MAGIC ITEM LORE ITEM NO TRADE
WT:0.1 Size:TINY
Class:ALL
Race:ALL

Pouch of Powdered Riftseeker Essence
MAGIC ITEM LORE ITEM NO TRADE
WT:0.1 Size:TINY
Class:ALL
Race:ALL

after giving note and pouch to Bantil:
Bantil Io`Tuv unrolls the note and reads it to himself, 'Interesting. Well, I'm not sure i can do anything with this, but if you take this to Transon in Twilight Sea, he may be able to understand it a little better.'

he returns pouch to you.

after giving pouch to Vornol Transon:
Vornol Transon furrows his brow for a little bit as he mixes the powder in a small flask. 'This is most intriguing. There is nothing here that represents elemental magic as we understand it.There being seem to use different means to channel thier power. Let's see...Chaos represents Fire, Order corresponds to Water, Air is channeled by Spirit, and...hmmm...Yes! There it is! Earth ties with Body.

Iilivina has been in Discord long enough, she may have some insight as to where these essences can be located.'

he keeps pouch.

after returning to Iilivina in Dranik's Scar:
You say, 'Hail, Iilivina'

Iilivina says 'Hello again. So you are looking for the Primal Elemental essences? That has a nice ring to it, Transon has always had a penchant for the dramatic. I do not believe you will find these beings in Discord however, if they exist at all. I do believe that your staff will resonate when you approach the creatures, so travel the world you know. Elementals tens to gravitate to areas that reflect theirr element best, I don't see why the [Primals] would behave any differently.'

You say, 'What Primals?'

Iilivina says, ' Were i to venture a guess, I'd say look for Chaos near near the ruins of a fallen empire, as order would tend to oppose chaos, I would look for the Order elemental near the ranks of a well regimented army, it is a creature of great prestige.

I would assume that its strong ties with this realm would pull it to a place where there are Muramites. When you find them, bring their remains to me and I'll see what else needs to be done.'

i also ran by Bantil and hailed him again to see if he had anything to add, since Transon had mentioned him as well when i visited him. upon hailing him, he only responded with basic beginning of 1.5 text.

i have a few theories about where these Primal Elementals may be found, but wont share them as theyre only guesses. will add more when i know for sure, so as not to send peeps on wild goose chases.

GL out there mages!


and yes, before anyone bothers, i KNOW this info is available on several other sites, but Alla's doesnt have it, and i havent read any other walk throughs. part of the fun of doing a quest is DOING the quest. i dont need my epic wrapped up with a bow on it for me, tho i have no problem sharing info for those that need a little help here and there.
