This is the final task in a series of three, and is part of the Theater of Blood access quest.

(need all dialogues, task text, information on rewards, etc.)

Find Tak`Valnakor at location +6880, -1350 in the Northern Desert of Ro.

You say, 'Hail, Tak`Valnakor'

Tak`Valnakor says 'Back again ______? I have heard of your work for the Queen's spirit. I wish that I could have met her. Perhaps one day she will speak with me as well. The news that you delivered about the princesses' betrayal must have struck her a devastating blow. I would ask that you [visit her] once again and see if you might be of any aid in her time of need.'

You say, 'I will visit her.'

You have been assigned the task 'Message to the Past'

Upon being issued the task, he will direct you to Queen Tal`Yaliz at location +5950, -2080. Doing so will result in a Crown of Tak`Yaliz and a group port in to an instanced version of Ruins of Takish-Hiz.

You say, 'Hail, Queen Tak`Yaliz'

Queen Tak`Yaliz says 'Have you any further news of my people ______? If I had only known of this betrayal when I was still alive I may have been able to put a stop to it. There is a chance though. I have heard of a rift opening between here and the Elddar of my past. If someone were able to find my younger self in that time they could warn of this betrayal and possibly prevent such a thing from happening. Would you be [willing] to undertake such an effort ______?'

You say, 'I am willing.'

Queen Tak`Yaliz says 'Your willingness to help lifts my spirits, perhaps there is hope yet. I would send you straight there, but I doubt that you would receive quite the welcome you would deserve. Before you go talk to my younger self it would be to your benefit to gather some of my lost possessions to serve as proof that I have sent you. To that end I will give you one of my last treasures. You will want to gather another token to show the corruption and betrayal by the priests as well. With all of those you should have small trouble convincing me of the tragedy to come. When you are [prepared] I will show you a secret way into the city.'

Your task 'Message to the Past' has been updated.

Your shared task is now locked. You may no longer add or remove players.

You say, 'I am prepared.'

LOADING, PLEASE WAIT...

You have entered Ruins of Takish`Hiz.

Your goal is to loot three items:
Takish-Hiz Royal Scepter
Jewel Encrusted Wand
A Corrupted Priest Signet


Locations vary on NPC's and ground spawns in the zone between different instances of this task. Please report your locations.

The scepter has been reported to be found in a chest located in the building at location +100, -960 and -6, -1066, +140

The wand has been reported to be found in a chest located in the building at location +260, -460, +140

The signet is dropped by High Priest Kelshar whose location varies. One location is in large temple, at the top of the northwest spiral staircase 120, 600, 166 in the southwestern-most section. He is guarded by two sand elves and spawns adds at 80% and again at 40%. Note that these adds may or may not come. However, if they do, be advised they are equivalent to his guards in terms of strength.

Once you have looted all three items, zone out in to the Southern Desert of Ro and make your way in to the non-instanced version of the Ruins of Takish-Hiz. From there, enter The Elddar Forest and enter the first building on your left upon zoning in.

Speak with Maryn Tak`Yaliz and give her the crown, wand, signet, and scepter.

You say, 'Hail, Maryn Tak`Yaliz'

Maryn Tak`Yaliz says 'You there! Leave here at once! Your kind is not welcome in here. Now leave before I call for the guards!'

Maryn Tak`Yaliz says 'These items lend some credence to your claims. I don't know that I believe that such a terrible fate will befall us, but there have been some disturbing occurrences lately. While what you claim will happen could be responsible for part of them, there may be more to this tragedy than we realize.'

Your task 'Message to the Past' has been updated.

With the message received in good faith things can only begin to improve. However, as Maryn said, there seems to be more to this corruption than was initially thought.

A dusty chest spawns with loot which will be one of:
Forest Moss Belt (please upload this to Lucy)
Root Tender Mace
Root Tender Necklace
Root Tender Veil

Some classes receive their 70th level spell / skill.

Cleric: Spell: Aura of the Pious
Druid: Spell: Aura of Life
Enchanter: Spell: Illusionist's Aura

As mentioned by others, the locations vary and thus those mentioned here are not always the good ones.

In addition, OOC regen timer is 5' as for Raid mobs and not 30'' as for the standard mobs.

Thanks added that NPC's and ground spawns vary. So I'm guessing NPC's are flagged as raid mobs in this instance?

Yes, I guess so too. I thought first to a bug; I even deco/reco but it stayed. When I was done in the zone, I gated to North Ro and there I had the normal 30'' timer back.

also, it is not necessary to zone out to South Ro and back in to regular Takish-Hiz before going to Elddar Forest. You can just go from the instanced Takish-Hiz directly to Elddar Forest.
They might as well

Since this mission is a few years old the devs might as well consider the idea of making it so they can task add other players into it, most especially for those who don't do trade skills to make spells as well as when other players go Link Dead so the reward dose not go to waste.

Sadly for those of us who fought thru this, all but the necro spell/aura are researchable now.

Rather ironic, my necro is a Master Researcher, and she will have to actually complete this pain in the neck quest to get the aura; yet she has researched it for everyone else. LOL

The chests, and Priest Kalshar, do not always spawn in the same locations. Did this quest 5 minutes ago, and only one of the chests were in the loc posted. That was the one in the first building to the left as you zone in. Otherwise the second chest was in the tower to the south of the first building. And priest Kalshar was in the NW room. Not the SW. He spawned 4 acolytes, none of wich came to his aid. We later ran into them at the bottom of the spiral staircase.

You can get another crown just by going back and saying "I am willing" again. You can even do this after looting the other items if necessary.

Quest may be a little buggy.

After receiving "Speak with the queens spirit" task update, sometimes while saying prepared to zonein it would de-update the task. So when we looted the pieces, it wouldent count.

To fix this we waited until it de-updated, then updated by speaking to her again, then zoning in.

Are you certain that's from this task? We currently have it listed as a quest reward from Skylance: The Laboratory.

Wouldn't let me edit my post so I'll add, my apologies, I didn't check the link and see that you were referring to the "Malos" idol, lvl 70 rather that the "Malo" idol, lvl 55.

Actually that is incorrect. You get the Idol of Malo spell from doing the lvl 55 "Chalice of Life" quest not from this Nro3 quest. Also, my sham has never received aggro from using his idol, however, yes the targeting problem it causes can be frustrating.

Did this mission with a few people. At the end, someone else had the crown and someone had the 3 parts from mission. We gave them the 3 parts, but turn in NPC didn't take the crown. Incase you do this, your not screwed. All you need to do is have the person with the crown to destroy it, have the person who looted the other 3 parts rehail and they will get crown, have person with new crown give it the the turn in NPC and mission completed.

Make sure.. only one person loots/recieves all 4 pieces..

The Queen in Elddar Forest won't take pieces from more than one person. They all need to be turned in at once.
