|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|This is the third monster mission in a series of three which lead up to the 24-person raid monster mission, The Fall of an Empire.
"a forgotten noble" may be found at -3260, +2535.
You say, 'Hail, a forgotten noble'
a forgotten noble says 'The book. Charged, was I, with its safekeeping. All was well until that fateful day: the day of the fall. They descended upon us with horrible fury. I could not fulfill my task. The failure will haunt me. I will haunt this grave . . . until the end of time. An eternity of unrest awaits unless I can uncover the whereabouts of the ancient book of the dead. You, mortal . . . you must seek them out. Find Tulok the Folklorist and the Spirit of Kotiz. They can help pinpoint the location! Kotiz is nearby. Tulok wanders the Emerald Jungle.'
The Spirit of Kotiz is a ghostly iksar found on top of the aqueduct system in the forest, at -1245, -2035. When you hail him, 6 red-to-70 skeletons named "Minion of Kotiz" spawn around him, and you are rooted and silenced with Vengeance of Kotiz.
Need opening dialogues.
If you do not answer with "I offer you vengeance" quickly enough, the skeletons will attack and you will most likely die.
You say, 'I offer you vengeance.'
Spirit of Kotiz says 'Indeed, that is something I seek. Many years ago, I found myself conversing in secret with Zebuxoruk. He had offered to me his journal of war, known simply as the Unholy Book of Zebuxoruk. Inside, he had promised battle strategies and magic's unknown to the Norrath as we knew it. I had come so close..'
You say, 'So close?'
Spirit of Kotiz says 'What happened? Ahh.. Yes, I had completed the pact with Zebuxoruk. Fifty sacrifices. Fifty sacrifices is all he required for the book to be mine. I was moments from grasping the book with my own hands before that wretched Sathir showed his face. He took the book from me, struck me down and left my rotting corpse deep within that wretched place.'
You say, 'What wretched place?'
Spirit of Kotiz says 'What wretched place? Kaesora, of course. Venril was his name, I believe. A young and powerful warrior-mage of the Kunzar tribe. He sought to decipher the unspeakable magic coded within Zebuxoruk's ancient book. You just may be worthy to go back and face Venril once more.'
(need information on all steps between here and end)
Two chests spawn after killing 50 mobs in an instanced version of Kaesora. In them are three shards each (named what?) and an item, which can be one of two things:
Kotiz's Empowering Essence which transmutes to: ???? (level 1-10), ???? (level 11-20), ???? (level 21-30), ??? (level 31-40), ??? (level 41-50), ??? (level 51-60), Kotiz's Essence of Demise (level 61-70).
Kotiz's Empowering Spaulders which transmutes to: ???? (level 1-10), ???? (level 11-20), ???? (level 21-30), ??? (level 31-40), ??? (level 41-50), ??? (level 51-60), Kotiz's Spaulders of Demise (level 61-70).
Note: Kotiz's Empowering Spaulders may be bugged. Despite showing 160/130/120 as its max stats, the highest stats outside of the missiona re 130/120/120.
Need further dialogues; names, /loc, fight info, and level range of all mobs; quest items if any; list of rewards; any other missing quest information.
