|Quest Started By:||Description:|
|Eron Nurwistle may be found on top of a windmill, at +800, -550. You must have a minimum skill of 250 in Fletching (confirm?) to receive this task. The task can be requested out of order but must be completed in order (using components from the previous task).
At the end of "Scrap Oil":
Eron Nurwistle says 'Yes, that setting works great. For your next task, you will need to test your [fletching] skills.'
You say, 'fletching?'
Eron Nurwistle says 'This next task does not have anything to do with my revenge, but it instead has to do with my curiosity. I found a book, but it is missing a few pages. From what I can tell it is an instruction book, but with the missing pages I cannot read it. I have gotten enough information though to figure that it leads to making an arrow. I am not sure of why someone made it so difficult to get the recipe, but it is. I have determined that you will be able to find the missing pages off of some of denizens within a crypt in the Hills of Shade. I expect that this will be dangerous, and I will only offer this task to someone with an expert skill at fletching. Do you think you are [ready] for this task?'
You say, 'I am ready'
You receive Damaged Book of Shadow Counting
You receive Eron's Steel Reconfiguration Pattern
Eron Nurwistle says 'This time I will give you the pattern you need for another reconfiguration setting once we have determined what the book's instructions lead too. I have given you two items, a guide to your next configuration, and the damaged instruction book.'
Eron wants you to complete the book he has given you and give him an example of what is in it.
You should be able to find the missing pages within the hills of shade. Once you do, repair the book with a book binding.
All three pages drop in the same area.. the crypt of shade (a tunnel system in the south of the zone). Make sure that you have someone who can do AE spell damage or sees SoS so that you can also kill Slithering Shades at the same time (for the essence required in a later stage).
Drops off a crypt ghoul or off Festerclaw.
Drops off a phoboplasm.
Drops off a frenzied ancestor.
Make sure to scribe the recipe from Eron first, then combine all of the Shadow Counting Pages and Damaged Book of Shadow Counting in the Book Binding.
This creates Shadow Counting.
For this stage you will need to collect three Gem Covered Box from each camp. They are lore, however all three of them have different item id's and can be confused with each other so keep them separate from each other.
Hills of Shade: Aviak Camp (not too uncommon off trash. Always dropped by Ebontail and The Collector).
Dragonscale Hills: Brownie Camp (not too uncommon off trash. Always dropped by Tangler Timbleton).
Loping Plains: Orcs (dropped by shamans and mystics. Always dropped by Bloodmoon Warlock).
To make your shadow boxes you will need combine the following in a Fletching Kit IN THIS EXACT ORDER and position yourself AT THE ALTAR (/loc 2500, 757 large island to the North)
Follow the book instructions precisely. If you do not make your shadow boxes in the correct order then you will lose that combine and will have to get another Gem Covered Box for that combine. You will see this message if so.
The box disintegrates in your hand. Maybe you did something incorrectly.
NOTE: If you fail any of the combines above, I believe you can stop and recover the box you lost and return at the appropriate time to pick up where you left off. This will not be true going forward as placement of each box causes invisible flags which you will have to reset. If you fail after this point you need to destroy all boxes you still have and turn in your shadow counting book to Eron to reset your invisible flags so you can restart this leg of the quest.
When choosing how to place your Shadow Box's on the altar in Hills of Shade, you will only have 1 minute real time, not game time to place the boxes. Make sure no one else is around you doing the same thing or else a error message will pop up on both of your screens.
WARNING: If you place the boxes in the wrong order, at the wrong time or if you open the wrong box after they have been placed, you will either suffer a 325K death touch or be swarmed and killed by MOB's that spawn and attack you! Even worse, you will lose all three (3) boxes and have to try again!
At 12 PM (noon or mid-day) game-time. This is when you will need to place all three Shadow Box on the altar in the proper order.

1 x Celestial Essence

1 x Swirling Shadow Essence
