You may do this quest once you have completed Noble Sivrn's task arc (starting with "Names of the Sphinx" and ending with "Broken Lines").

Hail Noble Sivrn again.

You say, 'Hail, Noble Sivrn'

Noble Sivrn says 'Forgive me, I seem to have forgotten my promise to honor you with a token of respect for your ability to solve the puzzles that have confounded the most intelligent amongst us... Take this mask. It may seem common to the mortal eye, but for the efreeti, each mask reveals the soul of the being from whom it was created.'

Receive Platinum Efreeti Mask.

Now you will need a set of Platinum Efreeti armor, which drops off efreeti NPCs in both the static and instanced Jewel of Atiiki zones.

Once you have done so, see Noble Phren who is located right beside Sivrn in the Nobles' tower.

You say, 'Hail, Noble Phren'

Noble Phren looks at you curiously, 'Is that Platinum Efreeti [armor] that you are carrying there with you?'

You say, 'It is Platinum Efreeti armor'

Noble Phren says 'It may interest you to learn that Efreeti are not all equal in intellect. That armor you carry is a type of identifier that allows the more simple of my kind to identify one another... Although the armor you carry seems to bear odd markings, would you mind if I examined it more closely?'

Give him the Breastplate:

Noble Phren touches the strange symbols and reads, 'Azia looks to the west, and sees Izah in the far distance.'

Give him the Greaves:

Noble Phren says 'The inscription on this piece reads, 'From his corner, Kala opposes Geza in his corner.''

Give him the Vambraces:

Noble Phren tilts the armor to view it in better light, 'Caza is surrounded by seven mutual allies, and one mutual enemy directly North, while Ozah is surrounded by enemies on all sides and corners.'

Give him the Gauntlets:

Noble Phren says 'Odd, there is an inscription on this piece... 'Lena avoids the board perimeter while Jaka does not, and the Northeast remains vacant.''

Give him the Bracer:

Noble Phren reads quietly as he studies the armor, 'Meda stands neither in the East or the West, Heda stands neither in the North or the South.'

Give him the Boots:

Noble Phren says 'It seems as though someone has scribed these words into the armor itself, 'As Ena faces from North to West to South, he sees Lena, Neza, and Beza.''

Give him the Helm:

Noble Phren says 'This armor mentions our missing brother, Paza, how strange as he is believed to be dead... 'Geza stands directly East of Jaka, while Fana stands watch, awaiting the return of Paza.''

Give him the Mask:

Noble Phren studies the mask for a moment, 'The wisdom of Ateleka guides those who seek knowledge.'

Get a Token of Order (random Atiiki drop), equip ALL the pieces of armor including the mask, and go play a game of order from Mahatototarit. Disregard his text about the normal game setting and play it out according to what Phren had to say about each inscription. When you have reached the proper order, go to Mahatototarit and say, "Done."

Mahatototarit says 'A very interesting configuration, you have not exactly solved the puzzle, but you have managed to unlock a pattern that summons our lost Paza from the realm of the dead...'

Paza spawns by the game board. Hail him.

You say, 'Hail, Paza'

Paza blinks for a moment as he studies you, 'Brother, my time is short, I have done as Xanxionusus commanded... I return from the other side with this message, D`nik Belm J`cof Ghap... Etch those words into your memory, and repeat them to Xanxionusus... Aaarrraaaaahhhh... I feel the pull of the other side once again, I beg you, take my mask so that my soul is released from this torment before I am drawn over once again...'

You receive the Efreeti Death Visage mask on your cursor.

You say, 'D`nik Belm J`cof Ghap'

Xanxionusus peers at you intently for a moment, then looks away and begins to whisper quietly in a strange voice, 'Paza has upheld the bargin, the recompense is granted as agreed... D`nik Belm J`cof Ghap!' the words fade as Xanxionusus fixes his gaze on you, 'I sense the darkness of your soul... These bones are no longer of any use to me; take them as compensation for your assistance in this matter... Leave quickly, and speak of this to no one.'

..and receive Paza's Cursed Remains

Xanxionusus peers at you intently for a moment, then looks away and begins to whisper quietly in a strange voice, "Paza has upheld the bargain, the recompense is granted as agreed... D`nik Belm J`cof Ghap!" the words fade as Xanxionusus fixes his gaze on you, "Although I am sure you acted out of ignorance, your assistance was useful... It would be best if you left now, I have many thoughts upon which to contemplate."

It is not known if there is anything further.

i wonder if finding and turning in armor is only for finding clues about how to set board but not actually needed

Platinum Efreeti Greaves
# Jan 25 2012 at 11:31 PM Rating: Decent

Just finished this quest series on my 82 Rogue and the best advice I can give anyone going after this item is to use the instance quest Gorillas in the Garden for the Greaves (and possibly the other armor). I cleared out the 3 smaller pyramids for several hours over two days coming across 2-3 drops of every armor piece aside from the Greaves. I read someone mention that they picked up two pairs of Greaves by one of the obelisks near zone in, so I started clearing that area and still found none. Finally, I decided to look into the Gorillas quest. I zoned it found an Efreeti and killed him and there they were on the first kill. Now this could be a ridiculous coincidence and seeing as this was the last thing I needed I didn't stick around to check the drop rate out on others, but someone else has mentioned seeing them on their 5th kill while others mentioned an increased drop rate for the armor pieces. That said, if you have the t5 journeyman merc then you can solo the pyramids pretty easily for decent AAs and the quests gave me 5, 5, 4, 4 and 4 AAs respectively. Entered the zone with around 275 and left with something closer to 330~. Happy Hunting.

Are there any illusion items (besides ones given out by Spooky Sally around Halloween) that are OLD GRAPHICS specter, i.e. black robe swirling behind them, hugely long scythe with the bone white blade, like the ones in the sleeper's tomb? My favorite mob graphics in the game, besides original dragons of course, would absolutely adore having old specter for illusion. Thanks.

This quest is kind of long, but at lvl 87 I got a little over 30 aa's (from killing mobs and quest turn-ins), picked up close to 10k in vendor trash, and got this cool mask. Some people really hate quests, but I really enjoy it.

The armor pieces were not too tough to get. I did kill a TON of efreetis, but since I had to kill them for the tokens any way, I just looted and held on to the armor pieces that dropped. They all seemed to drop at fairly regular intervals and the only repeats I had were one set of vambraces and one set of gauntlets. The greaves were the very last piece to drop for me, and from what I've read here and heard from others, they seem to be the rarest piece. I picked mine up inside one of the temples.

I used the 16 Puzzle solver here, but this made it a bit tricky because this particular solver always puts the free space (or the 0 piece) after 15 instead of before 1, so I had to flip the puzzle around and face west, instead of east. Once I figured that out, though, it was easy as cake, using the puzzle solver.

There are some really good walkthroughs for each puzzle posted on their individual alla pages. Follow those step by step the way they tell you and this quest will be no sweat.

Some of the walkthroughs for the final puzzle (on this page) only work if your puzzle starts out exactly the way the posters' did, which it probably won't. Just come up with your own system for keeping track of the pieces and use a solver. You'll be good to go.

Hope this info is helpful to folks!

Unless you're extremely lucky with Platinum drops, this quest can be a MAJOR time sink.

It's worth it though, at least imo.

Bit of advice... below me there are a few links to some 15 slider puzzle solvers. I highly rec. using one!

Good luck!

I wanted to inform anyone wo attempts this last part of this task to make sure that before you start attempting the puzzle or most definatle before you hail Piza, make sure you are wearing all 7 pieces of armor u collected and THE MASK as well, equallying wearing a total of 8 pieces. I failed after completing the puzzle and hail Piza because i wasnt wearing the mask because preivous posts just said wear the armor, amybe it was misconception but I wanted to stress the pain and agony after completing the puzle only to find I failed because I wasnt wearing THE MASK. it gets easier the second time so only took me about 15 mins of less to finsish the puzzle, the illusion is well worth the pain and suffering this whole ordeal of quests offer.

You only need to have one bracer. No need to collect two of them. I have completed this quest on several characters, including one just now, and one single bracer has been sufficient.

(Just in case, I unequipped my second bracer, leaving the right wrist bare, and the left wrist with the Platinum Efreeti Bracer.)

Ok, for those who have already done this quest, do you need just one platinum efreeti bracer or two??

TASK #6 -- EFREETI DEATH VISAGE

(You have to do the previosu Sivrn tasks to get to this one.)

1) JEWEL OF ATIIKI: Head back to Noble Sivrn, if you aren't all ready there.

Hail him again and he should give you a Platinum Efreeti Mask (No Trade, Magic, Weight 0.9, All/All).

.

2) Now you need to kill stuff until you get the full set of armor you need.

The best place to do this is around the Northern Pyramids, inside the Pyramids and even in instanced Atiiki missions.

They are semi-rare drops, but you will need to find and loot:

· Platinum Efreeti Breastplate (No Trade, Magic, Weight 11.9, All/All).

· Platinum Efreeti Greaves (No Trade, Magic, Weight 8.5, All/All).

· Platinum Efreeti Gauntlets (No Trade, Magic, Weight 4.3, All/All).

· Platinum Efreeti Boots (No Trade, Magic, Weight 5.6, All/All).

· Platinum Efreeti Vambraces (No Trade, Magic, Weight 4.6, All/All).

· Platinum Efreeti Helm (No Trade, Magic, Weight 3.7, All/All).

.

3) Now find Noble Phren (Level 75) (he is with Sivrn).

NOTE: This step may be optional. However, you may want to do it anyway, just in case.

Hail Phren and then give him each of the seven (7) pieces of armor you have.

He will make a comment on each one.

.

4) If you didn't retain a Token of Order, you will need to acquire another one.

.

5) Head back to Mahatototarit.

Put on the seven pieces of armor (yes, wear them).

Give the Token of Order to Mahatototarit.

.

6) Head back to the game board to the east.

This time you want to arrange the NPC's in the following fashion (position yourself west of the board and face east):

<Empty> Azia Heda Geza

Fana Ozah Caza Jaka

Meda Lena Ena Beza

Kala Izah Neza Dena

.

7) Head back to Mahatototarit and say "Done."

.

8) This should have caused Paza (Level 75) to spawn near the game board.

Hail him and you will get the Efreeti Death Visage.

Gratz!

You can put back on your real armor now.

NOTE: There is another optional step, but it is for Necromancers only.

I've tried to use the programs to solve this puzzle, but it was always too confusing trying to assign random letters a number that corresponded to the number on the solving-program.

Manually, I had no problem getting the first three rows in order, but then the last row would always end up GAH. Only after reading Eqnutter's post and following the link there was I able to figure out the key to solving these puzzles. So, definately check out http://www.waynesthisandthat.com/15puzzle.htm, it should help you learn to solve the puzzle and get your mask.

They don't line up to make this possible. According to this, M is the first to move, but he's locked in.

AACK!

**EDIT**
The Efreeti on the board move about in random patterns, from what I've gathered. I tried this portion of the quest five times and got five different patterns. On the fifth try, I used this:

15 Tile Solver

to solve the puzzle and done!

Whew....

This site was super helpful:
http://www.xs4all.nl/~hc11/15puzzle/15puzjav.htm

I insisted on solving the puzzle for myself. Kept getting stuck.

This site gives an example of a 15-puzzle and if you get stuck you can ask it for the correct moves. After a few runs I realized the strat I was missing and was able to correctly solve the one in Aitiki.

I iz the puzzlemaster!

Note:

I thought I would clear my bank by finishing this quest but no . . .

I am gonna have to keep all this Platinum Efreeti Armour. It is a set of plate that is caster-wearable, and as an enchanter I have been wanting armor to wear in my non-robe illusions (i.e. as a troll or ogre I have always looked undressed) like forever.

And another clickie for my collection... why can't they give us these as spells sigh.

I too was having trouble with the greaves, after about 20hrs of killing every efreeti I could find, both inside and outside the pyramids. Had a friend join me with my merc up and got the task "Gorillas in the Garden" from Head Attendant Haestus in Katta. Say "assist" to him to get the task then "prepared" to have him port you into the instance zone. Greaves dropped on 5th kill. Could have been a fluke, but read posts that armor pieces drop in the instance versions as well. Now I'm off to finish this PITA thing.

My 1st drop for the Efreeti mask was the gauntlets. They are not rare anymore and I had several drop.

Remember: The mask is given to you and is not a drop. I had all but the mask and was starting to hunt for it when another player reminded me of this.


It took me about a week to do the efreeti quests and get the 1st mask. As a necro I now have to run into a pyramid and talk to one of the Named Griffins.

edit:

I did the final part and ran down to talk to Xanxionusus. I made myself invulnerable and ran down spamming a macro to target him and say the phrase.

I died and returned to my bind spot where I saw the Remains on my cursor which then poofed when I moved and ended up back on my corpse.

Hey guys. Just thought i would save a year or so of everyone's time. For those of you thinking about doing this quest, let me tell you my story.

This zone has honestly stole my sanity. i even saw efreeti's in my dream once (no joke. no lie). i have been here so long i can't even believe it. i have had 3 Elaborate Plate Legs, 3 Elaborate Leather Legs, 1 Elaborate Plate Boot, 2 Elaborate Cutlasses, 1 Elaborate Recurve Bow, and 1 Elaborate Claymore (all of the Defiant line) drop as well as earning 50kpp in selling trash, Defiant armor and tradeskill items and earning around 40 AAs WITHOUT Lessons being used ONCE. I have killed somewhere on the verge of 700 Efreetis solo (not including the groups and instances and the kind necro who kited with me) and have died somewhere on the verge of 50 times. Ask anyone in general on the Quellious server about me and this zone and they'll tell you the hillarious moments we had at 12 AM on a sunday night with me in this zone "losing my sanity" and us talking back and forth. I've met close to 7 new people through this quest just asking for groups or telling general about rots on nameds. i have had 5 FULL sets of Platinum Efreeti Armor drop plus a few extras minus the gloves since i have been here. THIS is worse than an epic drop rate. PLUS the pathing here is God awful. you take 2 feet backwards and your pet has to go over a cliff, around the pyramids through the pyramids, over the hill, into the pit, over a bridge, into a cave, 5 trips through the cave, into a waterfall and back over the cliff just to get to you who took 2 steps back. Let a mob do that, and you're dead in a heartbeat. And they warp insanly. you don't run past mobs in here. you walk past them so that they can spawn out of the sand in front of you 5 times and hit you and you die. and i havn't even been here half the time these other posters have. HOW any of you had the sanity to complete this i can't even imagine. You really are EQ heros.

So in other words those of you looking at this saying "Hmmm nice mask. Only specter illusion item in game. I think i'll do this.".... Please for the sake of your time, sanity and xp bar don't even bother starting this task arc unless you consider the things i actually recieved in benefit from this quest somehow worth it all. It may only be my opinion and i may look kinda crazy. but that zone does this to people when you do this quest. I just wanted anyone else who might consider this. to reconsider before it's too late....

I have been farming armor in JoA for few days now and have noticed a coincidence. I kill efreeti in certain part of the zone like around a pyramid or other single object. The first day I got two Vambraces around the big pyramid, the next day I switched to the obelisk over the zone in tunnels and got two Greaves, then later that day moved to the other side of the zone to the other obelisk and ended up getting two Boots.
Now this seems very strange to me since all the other posts say its random drops, but it sure does seem like efreeti around different objects drop certain armor pieces. Anyone else notice this?

This sounds like a logical solution to this. I am trying it now, and so far it seems to be true, though I have only camped 3 different places and got 3 different drops so far... will see if it holds up.

** UPDATE -- 4 locations, 4 drops... also I'm noticing, it's always the last mob standing at a location that drops the piece (probably coincidence on that one)

** UPDATE -- okay theory proven wrong. At the 5th location I got the same drop as I got at the third location. So maybe not proven wrong, but at least it's proven that the same item can drop at different locations. Maybe 2 locations per item? Oh well, was worth a shot.

Ok Those that are necros listen up this was a pain. Reminded of my phoboten hunt . The sphinx is down in basement soon as you get in basement hand your first left and there she is . When u get to here u get a bard song show up in your song window. Makes you none Kos to mobs in room long as you close to her. Im not totally sure bout the cube that paths in and out of the room but you should be non kos to him too. I tryed doing that stupid phrase invised, uninvised, behind here levetating above her and no luck, heres the trick.
You need to have your effreti mask , the one you looted to do the quest not the one u just got, on you when u say the phase to her or she just smiles and looks at you pretty. The run down to basment is a pain after all the other stuff u have to do then u have to run in to a mine field , somnone hand me my sign. Anyway it was a fun long quest im that much closer to winning the game lol. yeah i know get some sleep. Good luck and have fun .

made the mistake of completing the entire last puzzle without equipping the armor, so had to do it twice... doh! remember to equip everything even before hailing the sphinx to begin the puzzle.

also.. this is correct for the last puzzle:


D N I K
B E L M
J C O F
G H A []

this is looking west, with the pyramid behind you. OR...


K M F []
I L O A
N E C H
D B J G

this is looking north, with the pyramid to your right.


the little [] is the empty space in the north-east corner.

took me about 45mins to do the puzzle twice...just keep moving them in circles and trying different positions. it takes a bit but eventually you'll get it. fun quest... but farming the armor was a bitch. i got all my pieces in a combination of missions inside the pyramids and farming them outside.

good luck! long quest, well worth it.

Just did this solo........ran through invis, hit 2 bug traps so had to fd real quick twice, was down to 8% and 15%. Them bugs hit hard and fast.
Got outside Xan room.
The undead in there have very low aggro range, so i just invis and ran straight behind Xan with no aggro.
Hailed and /said quote, and got the reward.
Had 13k hp, so guessing it could be tricky with less.
Update.
Did the hail while invis btw.
Tested mobs in room 1st and all were aggro to me.

Rabagok is right.

Quichon is wrong.

To check - If the [] is NE - then :

As Ena faces from North to West to South, he sees Lena, Neza, and Beza.''

which is :

L
N E
B

I did Q's and it did not work then I did R's and it worked.

it always looks like

J C O F
A H G []

or

J C O F
H A G []


theres that trick were you set them up like

ofa.
cjgh

but mine always comes out

ofh.
cjag

even after moving things around for an hour of shifting and realigning i cant get them to set up properly! i even redid 3/4 of the puzzle with no avail. any suggetions?

If they are having trouble, you must unfortunately explain to them how to do the puzzle. Earlier today, I tried to complete the puzzle to pop Paza so in the small chance my friend could hail and get the mask. It did not work. In fact, it handed me another mask.

The best way to help your friends, if they do not somehow understand to look at Keldinaar's post(and definitely face west) or look at the solution that always works while doing that is to hail the next mob they need to and stand out of the way so they can target. It will give your kitchen knives the courtesy of not witnessing supuku and your friend will get their mask. C'mon I know you've all got the patience to help your friends!

The technique the from the first spoiler works fine he just got the order wrong, or perhaps they changed it.

WARNING: SPOILER ALERT AHEAD....





Okay, you remember the first puzzle, right? Where you had to get them in alphabetical order? #3: Order Squared. You use the same link to work this one, right here... http://www.example.com/http://www.geocities.com/abcmcfarren/math/tile.htm . The solution previously posted does work, but it's rotated around backwards to be used with the website, so here's the Final Order For Dummies, *With the Pyramid behind you*

D B J G
N E C H
I L O A
K M F []

(X) <-- you

So when using the website for the puzzle, numbers are to letters as follows:

1 = D
2 = B
3 = J
4 = G
5 = N
6 = E
7 = C
8 = H
9 = I
10 = L
11 = O
12 = A
13 = K
14 = M
15 = F

Actually, if I read the clues correctly you have your table flipped a little bit. From the "Gauntlets" clue we know that the NE corner has to remain open so leaving the open spot where you have it would give us North=right, South=left, East=Down, West=up.

Now, from the "Breastplate" clue we get 'Azia looks to the west, and sees Izah in the far distance.'; which indicates that Azia is on the far Eastern side while Izah is on the far Western side. If you look at your matrix you have Azia on the North and Izah in the South based on the position of the empty block. I worked through the puzzle using the clues and came up with the exact layout you have, it's just flipped on an axis through D,E,O,[] so that K and G switch places. Here's the matrix that I came up with.

D N I K
B E L M
J C O F
G H A []

This would result in the following number assignments:

1 = D
2 = N
3 = I
4 = K
5 = B
6 = E
7 = L
8 = M
9 = J
10 = C
11 = O
12 = F
13 = G
14 = H
15 = A

It's possible I worked this incorrectly but the East/West clue for Azia/Izah, along with the fact that we have the same solution, just flipped, seems to support that this is the correct alignment.

Can anyone who's actually completed this confirm?

Edit: Just reread all of your post then found the previous post you referenced and see that my solution matches the previous post exactly, just rotated 90 degrees. I'm not following why your solution is flipped from the prior post rather than just rotating it so the empty postion is in the right spot to accommodate the solver you used.

One quick thing to add. I just finished this and learn from this mistake. Its a long quest and when I did the last puzzle of order I was not wearing any of the platinum efreeti gear. I did it just like the walkthrough provided on this site and did not get the mask. I started it over and was wearing the platinum efreeti gear and I did get the mask.

Bet you dont have to farm the armor now that its solved

I would bet that it is NOT necessary to farm and wear all the armor pieces. The armor only is used to give clues as to how to solve the puzzle and I think it was coincidence that the first solver was actually wearing it when he solved it. If you havent done your final game of order please test out my theory, the worst it can cost you is a single token of order. Do the game and tell the sphinx done and see if you are prompted to put the armor on or not and if you get the reward or not. You might waste 15 minutes trying it but you could save thousands of people hours farming stuff they dont have to.

You do have to farm the armor.

You can do the Order puzzle to spawn paza as soon as you get a Token of Order. But if you do not have the mask he will not respond to your hails and will jsut sit there for 15-20 min then depop.

If you do have the mask but do not have all of the other armor (tried it with mask + 2 pieces, all equipped) then once you hail Paza he says:

"You have released me from the bonds of death too soon, I curse you mortal! I was meant to be summoned only by one of my brethren so that I might deliver a message from the other side to my master... Ooonnnnuuuusssss, I am pulled back into death, the pain..."

The he despawns.

Adidos,

I did farm all the armor.

But I did the first dialogue, gave the token, and played with game without equipping it. I only equipped the armor before the final hail. Paza spawned okay and gave me the mask.

Confirm. It's NOT enough to have just bracer and mask. I weared mask and 1 bracer, did puzzle, Paza spawned and said something with "Ooonnnnnuuuusssss, I'm pulled back ..." sentence. No spectre mask.

Puzzle order is as described in the starting comment.

DOES NOT WORK. I handed efreeti mask to Noble Phren, then gave token of order to other Mahatototarit, then solved puzzle, PAZA did spawn, hailed PAZA, he said a bunch stuff to me about curse you, bla bla bla, then he was pulled back into death, ohh the pain... NO Efreeti Death Visage Mask

Yes ohh the pain for actually trying this, but had it worked, would have saved some serious farm time for the armor. Strap in, no short cuts.

After you finish and recieve your mask if you go and say D`nik Belm J`cof Ghap to
Xanxionusus he says...

Xanxionusus peers at you intently for a moment, then looks away and begins to whisper quietly in a strange voice, "paza has upheld the bargin, the recompense is granted as agreed... D`nik Belm J`cof Ghap!" the words fade as Xanxionusus fixes his gaze on you, "I sence the darkness of your soul...These bones are no longer of any use to me; take them as compensation for your assistance in this matter...Leave quickly, and speak of this to no one."
